Because I’m Free

by on May.26, 2012, under Extrania

Raindrops keep falling on my head
And just like the guy whose feet are too big for his bed
Nothin’ seems to fit
Those raindrops are falling on my head, they keep falling

So I just did me some talkin’ to the sun
And I said I didn’t like the way he’ got things done
Sleepin’ on the job
Those raindrops are falling on my, head they keep falling

But there’s one thing I know
The blues he sends to meet me won’t defeat me
It won’t be long till happiness steps up to greet me

Raindrops keep falling on my head
But that doesn’t mean my eyes will soon be turnin’ red
Crying’s not for me
Cause I’m never gonna stop the rain by complainin’
Because I’m free
Nothing’s worrying me.

Clean

by on May.25, 2012, under Extrania

Once nice thing about computing from the hospital bed, there are always tons of free screen wipes around.   Alcohol swabs are stacked around like snow drifts as the nurses use one to eight every time they change my pipes or draw blood.  My screen has never stayed so clean.

Cancer Stats : Infections

by on May.10, 2012, under Extrania

 

My Dad read that folks who contract mononucleosis, as I did in college, are four times more likely to get Hodgkin’s Lymphoma which I have now.

How common is infection as a precursor to cancer?   About 15%.

http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/notrocketscience/2012/05/10/what-does-it-mean-to-say-that-something-causes-16-of-cancers/

But don’t get too crazy flashing that number around.  As the article states, it’s a derivative of a derivative.  It’s useful but blunt.

I advise you wash your hands more, and keep you house/work well ventilated.

Recognizing Evil

by on Mar.28, 2012, under Extrania

A major problem with cancer is that our immune system doesn’t just eat it, kick it out.  For some reason, a healthy immune system which can easily shrink a tumor (by chewing off a cell at a time) just won’t eat the bad guy.  It doesn’t recognize the tumor cells as ‘bad’.

Here’s a line of research to solve that problem.

Cancer cells wear sheep’s clothing.  We need em naked.

The newest member of our household arrived with Claudia DeBorde.  He sported a jaunty bow on arrival but I think he’s more hip with the SG11 badge featuring Curious George.

” ‘ ” [ alternative ] ” ‘ “

by on Mar.15, 2012, under Extrania

I’m not promoting or vouching for this.  Nor am I mocking or disregarding it.

Another line of inquiry… http://www.healingcancernaturally.com/

Healing Cancer Naturally is based on three fundamental “credos” and commitments:

1 The human body is designed to be self-healing and will beautifully do its assigned task if we properly support and/or don’t hinder it in the performance of this basic function. This is why the overwhelming majority of Healing Cancer Naturally’s pages is devoted to diet, detoxification, and mental, energetic and spiritual factors in healing and health.

2 Information and help should be made available to anyone afflicted with cancer or other illness, regardless of the size of their pocketbook. This is why Healing Cancer Naturally provides all its potentially life-saving information for free rather than selling part of it in book form, and asks for donations and other support instead. That is also the reason why simple and inexpensive “DIY” ways people have used to heal from cancer get top priority while expensive “alternatives” to conventional treatment (and there are some very expensive ones indeed) will either be ignored or mentioned only on the side.

3. Healing Cancer Naturally believes that any challenge, be it in the area of health, relationships and/or finances, can (and optimally perhaps should) be used as a personal growth experience, allowing the person undergoing and eventually victoriously overcoming the challenge to arise from it not only healthier but also wiser and a better person than ever before.
