We have a new therapy at Lifeworks that I am very excited about. It’s called NanoVi.
This device is able to add an energetic wave length to distilled water that is both energizing, detoxing and heals your damaged DNA. Pretty interesting right?
In experiments they tested people’s urine for damaged DNA and found that many people from their exposure to chemicals, pesticides, heavy metals, etc. have an overabundance of damaged DNA in their urine. After treatment with the NanoVi the level came down into a normal range. This is very good preventive medicine as damaged DNA could be a precursor to cancer. Below is a video where I explain it in a little more detail but please call us if you are interested in getting some NanoVi treatments. I would get a package of 10 and do it 3 times a week. It’s only 15 minutes and does not require any IV or blood draw. I think you will like what it does. I do!
Have a great week.

This week the NY Times reported that (from Stat Morning Rounds Online)
Prominent cancer researcher quits after report on financial disclosures
The chief medical officer of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center has resigned on the heels of a New York Times and ProPublica investigation that found he failed to disclose millions of dollars in payments from drug and health care companies on studies he authored in leading journals. ProPublica and the New York Times found that Dr. José Baselga didn’t report any financial ties — including links to Roche and several small biotechs — in dozens of papers he authored since 2013.
How does this make you feel about your trust of these institutions? Or what they advise for care? Sloan Kettering is at the pinnacle of the cancer industry in the world.
There are truths in medicine and most of them have to do with good nutrition, avoiding toxins and drugs, getting sleep, sunshine and exercise, and if you are ill seeing a practitioner who can help your body heal by nontoxic means. Yes, occasionally pharmaceuticals are needed, on a temporary basis for emergencies, but that is rare rare rare.
I urge you to be vigilant about your personal care and that of your family and be very careful that you get medical advice from practitioners of holistic medicine.
Have a great week.

The Cause of Cancer
It was Nobel Prize winner, Otto Warburg, who first identified that cancer cells have an altered metabolism. In 1931, this was a breakthrough and has led to a greater understanding of how cancer may be prevented and how the outcome in cancer patients can be improved. What Warburg discovered is that a long-term lack of oxygen allows for normal healthy cells to turn into cancer cells. How does this occur? Healthy cells function by the respiration of oxygen but when cells are deprived of oxygen they survive on the fermentation of sugar. This means low energy (ATP) levels inside of cells.
A healthy cell has a resting membrane voltage of about 70 millivolts. A cancer cell has a resting membrane potential of only around 30 millivolts. A healthy cell is continuously pulling in potassium and pushing out sodium in order to function properly but when the energy of the cell is diminished it can no longer do this which leads to a build-up of acid in the cell. This excess of acid means that oxygen cannot enter the cell, the cell has to look elsewhere for a source of energy, which it finds in the fermentation of sugar. The metabolism of cancer cells is approximately eight times greater than the metabolism of normal cells, hence the crave sugar so much in their quest to survive.
So, with this in mind, it becomes clear that boosting oxygen supply is essential in order to prevent cancer occurring, or as part of its treatment. Cancer cells are traditionally unpredictable, often appearing to have vanished after treatment, only to resurface later on. One reason for this is that conventional cancer treatments usually fail to address either the underlying cause of cancer or the conditions that cancer cells thrive in – e.g., lack of oxygen.
