    To Kill Cancer, Turn Up the Heat
    More than 5,000 years ago, doctors in Egypt used heat to treat cancer.

    Today, even the American Cancer Society admits, “Very high temperatures can kill cancer cells outright.”

    I’ve written about this many times. In fact, this approach was one of the first I learned about 15 years ago when I started reporting on alternative cancer treatments. I said then that it was one of the ten best, and that is still my opinion.

    How can you take advantage? The best-known treatments for applying heat are hyperthermia and infrared saunas.

    But recently I learned a Japanese schoolteacher created another, little-known method, which uses heat to not only heal cancer, but to diagnose it. It's called Onnetsu (comfortable heat) therapy. And it’s available in the United States, although you may have to travel.

    Let’s take a look. . .

    Restoring total body harmony

    It was only in retirement that Tomeko Mitsui decided to study Traditional Chinese Medicine.

    In the course of her inquiries, she discovered the benefits of moxibustion. This involves the burning of herbs on the skin at acupuncture points, before the needles are inserted. The idea is to just warm the skin – the burning herbs are removed before the flame reaches the skin and burns it.

    Ms. Mistui was impressed with the effects, and decided to focus on a more convenient way to apply heat to the patient by using a device similar to an electric iron.

    In the late 1980s, after continued experimentation, she created a far-infrared (FIR) therapy device to send heat deep into the tissues. FIR takes advantage of a subdivision of the electromagnetic spectrum that transfers energy in the form of heat.

    After she passed away, her work was continued and expanded by Dr. Kazuko Tatsumura, who got on board after witnessing first-hand the remarkable results of the therapy.

    The world of natural healing was fortunate this accomplished pianist, composer, cultural impresario, humanitarian and philanthropist decided to take an interest, and become qualified, in Oriental Traditional Medicine. She formed the not-for-profit GAIA Holistic Center in New York after 9/11, using traditional healing methods based on the wisdom of the East.

    Four concepts guide Onnetsu

    Oriental medicine sees the universe, including planet earth, as an intricate, interdependent, interconnected web of relationships that involves constantly moving energy and matter.

    The human body is a microcosm of this philosophy whereby trillions of cells seek to cooperate with each other to create balance and harmony. Onnetsu therapy (OT) aims to restore this harmony in a holistic way when it gets out of balance in an unhealthy body.

    OT, as developed by Dr. Tatsumura, is based on four ideas:

    Far-Infrared radiation and other natural vibrations. Part of the sun’s energy is in the invisible, infrared band of the light spectrum.

    Research by NASA in the 1960s found that infrared rays in the range of two to 25 microns are necessary to grow and maintain life. Dr. Tatsumura has found that a narrower range of 8-10 microns is optimal for healing and rejuvenation.

    Some corroboration for the general idea comes from Japanese scientists who have found that teraherz (ultra-high frequency) quantum waves are produced by practitioners of Qigong in generating Qi (universal life-force) energy. According to reports, scientists have used minerals such as volcanic rocks to artificially make waves from this part of the spectrum.

    According to Dr. Tatsumura, teraherz waves resonate with healthy human cells, have a high antioxidant effect and can effectively eliminate waste products. They are able to activate cells deep in the body, where they produce powerful healing effects and create an environment in which malignant cells cannot survive.

    Support for her statements comes from Hiroki Shima, MD, PhD, President of the SHIMA Institution for quantum medicine, and Professor emeritus of the Hyogo College of Medicine.

    He has investigated the healing power of terahertz rays for the human body and published research demonstrating that far infrared rays in this range inhibit the growth of human prostate cancer cells.

    Body temperature. A healthy person has to maintain an inner body temperature of 97.7 to 98.6º F. The Japanese have long believed that unhealthy cells are cold and their temperature must be raised. Cancer, they say, thrives at 95º but dies at 107º. (The latter has been independently confirmed.)

    It's been traditional Japanese practice to heat the inner body by taking a daily hot bath, drink regular cups of tea and warm the feet.

    Elizabeth Pepasky from Roswell Park Cancer Institute in New York demonstrated in mice that cold conditions boost the growth of several types of cancer. Compared to healthy mice, those with tumors choose environments with the hottest temperatures.

    Balance. This concept is reflected in the work of the late Dr. Toru Abo, professor of immunology at Nigata University School of Medicine in Japan.

    He made many new discoveries in his career, the most widely known being the "Regulation of Leukocytes by the Autonomic Nervous System."

    He showed that in health, the correct percentages of white blood cells should be 60% granulocytes (neutrophils, eosinophils, basophils, mast cells) 35% lymphocytes (T cells, B cells, natural killer cells) and 5% macrophages.

    If the body is in a state of too much stress (or relaxation), the two sides of the nervous system - sympathetic and parasympathetic - fall out of balance leading to a change in the ratio of leukocytes. Any significant change will lead to disease.

    Promoting the flow of energy. This concept calls for using the ideas of acupuncture -- but without the needles -- to encourage blood, oxygen, lymph and Qi flows, and to ensure a balance between yin and yang organs according to ideas of Oriental Traditional Medicine.

    The liver (yin), for instance, must be balanced with the gallbladder (yang). These in turn influence other organs in the body.

    Part 2

    When hot means cold

    The main tool used to carry out Onnetsu Therapy (OT) is a platinum Onnetsuki, a handheld device which utilizes a microprocessor-controlled assembly having a heater and a ceramic plate. It emits a far-infrared wavelength of 8-10 microns and a terahertz frequency vibration. A version embedded in a mat is also available.

    When the Onnetsuki is slid along the skin, the patient's reaction is vital. Healthy areas are comfortable but when the patient cries "ouch" or "hot," it means unhealthy cells are present up to 12 inches beneath the surface.

    Although the patient feels great heat, what’s actually happened is the device has located an unhealthy cold area. As the "hot spot" is treated, the heat sensation gradually subsides and the patient’s clinical condition improves.

    The therapy takes 40 to 60 minutes to apply. For cancer this is continued daily for at least three weeks, after which the body should be able to self-heal.

    Results in cancer patients

    OT has been applied in a very wide range of health conditions including cancer.

    Dr. Tatsumura gives brief examples of the treatment in three cancer patients in the Open Access Journal of Oncology.

    Female patient with stage 4 brain cancer: At the start of the treatment white blood cells were completely out of sync. Granulocytes were at 86.4%, lymphocytes at 7.2% and macrophages (which are much less critical) at 6.4%. After two weeks the percentages improved to 67.3, 22.4, and 10.3. After three weeks there was further improvement to a near-normal 61.5, 31.3, and 7.3, and she became cancer free after three months.

    Patient with breast cancer: A 69-year-old thought to have just a short time to live came to the practitioner with a six-inch diameter tumor. After two weeks of treatment a major portion of the tumor fell away and she started to feel better.

    In that time she also slept on the Onnetsu Mat. This keeps the body warm and gives the body constant treatment. The mat is considered indispensable for cancer patients because their bodies are always cold. This patient’s granulocyte/lymphocyte ratio improved from 80.5%/6.6% to 65.3%/15.1% two months later. The article includes before and after photographs.

    Stage 4 melanoma: Photographs show an improvement in the patient's skin at one week and then after three weeks of OT. The article describes the patient as doing very well five years later.

    Metastasis is good!

    An unorthodox concept explained by Dr. Tatsumura in the Journal of Oncology Research and Treatment is the misconception, as she sees it, that metastasis is a sign of worsening cancer. Just the opposite -- it shows the body is healing.

    She writes, "Thanks to the research of Dr. Minoru Fukuda, we have confirmed that cancer tends to move when the number of lymphocytes increase. The cancer spreads in order to survive when it’s attacked by lymphocytes.

    "Our group has experienced many cases in which cancers naturally recede after spreading. Metastasis is not scary -- it is a sign of healing.

    "When cancer spreads, check your lymphocyte count. If the number has increased, it means you’re fighting the cancer with your body’s healing power."

    According to Dr. Tatsumura, people get stressed out and feel desperate when they are told the disease has spread. This creates an even greater imbalance in the autonomic nervous system and worsens the condition.

    She advises people to follow Dr. Toru Abo’s four top rules for healing cancer. Re-evaluate your lifestyle patterns. Eliminate your fear of cancer. Don’t blindly agree to any treatment that suppresses immunity, and if you’ve already begun such treatment, stop immediately. Stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system.

    Finding a therapist

    The treatment is easy, fast acting, non-invasive and has no side effects other than healing reactions. Based merely on the description I’ve published here, I would agree that all this sounds true. I can’t confirm that it’s effective but it certainly sounds safe.

    Dr. Tatsumura has traveled widely teaching OT not just in the US but to 70 medical doctors in Cuba as well as natural therapists in the rest of Latin America and other countries where, she claims, it's being used successfully in clinics and hospitals.

    The Foundation for Alternative and Integrative Medicine (FAIM), which aims to identify breakthrough integrative and alternative therapies, was able to get approval to carry out several studies. The results of their work and others conducted in Cuba prompted them to write:

    "One day, the world will take notice of this therapy, too basic for the ivory towers of medicine...a gift to humanity."

    No website lists where therapists can be found ,but there are several centers and practitioners in New York, and the US Onnetsu Therapy Center is based in Duluth, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta.

    Acupuncturists are the most likely group to have received training in OT, so it's worth contacting your local therapist.

    These Drugs Double or Even Triple
    Your Risk of Dementia


    The number of people prescribed one particular class of medication climbed by 64% in the US between 1999 and 2014.

    These days, one person out of every five over-60s take these meds, with women being twice as likely to rely on them as men.

    The drugs I’m talking about are supposed to relieve depression.

    A Canadian scientist, concerned these drugs could be linked to dementia, rifled through the research to find some answers. His findings are disturbing.

    Most Popular Depression Drugs Don't Work

    Over a decade ago, a group of psychologists from England reviewed data on 47 clinical trials of people taking the six most widely prescribed antidepressants approved between 1987 and 1999.

    Five of these were selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). The first of them to be introduced was fluoxetine – more familiar by its brand name Prozac. Introduced in 1986, it became such a sensation it gave rise to a novel called Prozac Nation and a non-fiction book called Listening to Prozac, in which the author seemed to think the drug was the best thing since the invention of the wheel.

    Now there are many SSRIs. They all increase levels of the mood-controlling chemical serotonin in the brain.

    The group of English psychologists concluded these drugs don’t benefit most patients very much. It seems they only help people with the severest symptoms, and even then the benefit is only due, they write, "to a decrease in responsiveness to placebo, rather than an increase in responsiveness to medication."

    In other words, in these trials a control group of severely depressed people on placebo reported less benefit than did mildly depressed people on placebo. (Makes sense – an imaginary drug is more likely to be helpful if there really isn’t much wrong with you.)

    But among people who were actually getting an SSRI, there was no difference in response between the mildly and severely depressed. And in both groups the benefit was small.

    Lead researcher Professor Irving Kirsch said, "Given these results, there seems little reason to prescribe anti-depressant medication to any but the most severely depressed patients."

    Prof. Kirsch’s advice was not heeded. Over the next ten years the number of prescriptions written for antidepressants in England doubled.

    If these drugs weren't harmful, it wouldn't be such a concern. But as Dr. Darrell Mousseau, a Professor with the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Saskatchewan, found out, they're not entirely safe.

    Dementia Link is "Biologically Plausible"

    To see if antidepressant use is tied in with cognitive impairment or dementia, Dr. Mousseau and his colleagues checked over 4000 articles before finding just five trials that met their exacting standards. Even so, these included more than 1.5 million people. The studies encompassed people taking a number of different types of antidepressant, not just SSRIs.

    The researchers found that taking antidepressant drugs more than doubled the risk of either cognitive decline or dementia, including Alzheimer's.

    For those aged under 65 the risk tripled. The strongest risk was for those taking SSRIs. The lowest, for people prescribed older types of antidepressant.

    I want to stress that the study can only demonstrate an association, not cause and effect. It does not identify a mechanism by which the drugs increase dementia risk. It also wasn't possible to determine either the dosage people were taking or how long they had been prescribed the drugs.

    But even with these limitations, the researchers say the link is "biologically plausible" and should be taken seriously.

    Handed Out Like Antibiotics

    Canadians are among the highest users of antidepressants worldwide, and while Dr. Mousseau accepts that the drugs benefit some people, he is alarmed at the way doctors dish them out for "sadness," insomnia, pain, hot flashes and other non-depression-related problems. Even the very young and very old receive prescriptions.

    "They're almost becoming the antibiotic of this century," he complains. "'If you've got a disease, take an SSRI. It's going to help you in one way, shape or form.'"

    And we all know the problems that indiscriminate use of antibiotics has
    led to.

    The Canadian group is not the only research team to find a link between depression drugs and dementia. A similar study was published last year by scientists from Taiwan. They condensed 754 studies down to five, four of which were different from the ones included by Dr. Mousseau's team.

    They concluded that "antidepressant use is significantly associated with an increased risk of developing dementia. Therefore, we suggest physicians to carefully prescribe antidepressants, especially in elder patients."

    Get Rid of Depression without Drugs

    An excellent alternative to these drugs is regular exercise. Research suggests this may be a more effective treatment for mild depression than antidepressants because it can boost levels of serotonin.

    On top of that, exercise induces structural and functional changes in the brain which benefit both cognitive functioning and wellbeing, and is one of the best things we can do to reduce the risk of dementia.

    Another option I strongly recommend is meditation. There are a variety of different methods of meditation, and myriad teachers who will show you how.

    What they're finding out and discussing here seems to implicate; "Let's program you with these foods so you can be a true omnivore." I'm kind seeing what their talking about with food carrying information, being information and working with RNA/DNA as like old Hayes AT modem codes.

    +++ATQN1\CN1 Simple code to switch modem to command mode, get its attention, tell it to use software flow control, buffer the text or responses for 3 seconds. In common parlance "the connecting to an ISP 'handshake'".

    So what I'm reading when it's written: "Food is information and can interact with RNA/DNA." ... is this: "You can program bodies with food used as source code."

    Oh boy, body hacking! Muhaha!

    I know this will sound callous, harsh. Not meant as such sincerely. This kind of "stuff" going on really does not surprise me any longer.

    Tried pointing out that we eat the dead. I was advised that "that's just how it is, dead provides life to the living". Well, if we consider the axiom "you are what you eat", how does that work out for ya?

    Not much on religion of any kind being an agnostic. Suppose though with the course of my life I've had what many consider a comparative religion course of study. I've lived as a Mennonite in youth so understand Christianity, well perhaps not understand but at least have a sound basis of knowledge of it.

    My mom never had any of her sons baptized or christened. She did demand though we attend the Bible school Summer course. We in her mind needed a basic knowledge of Christianity and her being non-denominational Baptist it didn't matter the "flavor" of Christianity. I went and butted heads as a young boy with the father teaching, I had questions that were valid. He finally relented. "You've been given these questions for a reason, keep asking even if no one can answer. Find the answers you need for yourself."

    I have faith in love & hope. Cannot seem to get past that threshold regarding existence of any gods/goddesses. "I don't know that God exists. I don't know that God doesn't exist." Further, I don't think we (mankind (women inclusive using the old gender neutral language)) are meant to know.

    And in this not knowing I choose to be selective apathetic. "I don't care that I don't know if God exists. If God exists I think IT's too busy doing IT's thing to care about me existing. So, I'll return the favor and not care if IT exists."

    Should this offend you as a Christian, consider that Jesus Christ the Redeemer taught you that we all have freedom of choice regarding faith. I am still redeemed by His(Jesus) gift for He(Jesus) gave that gift of Love to ALL. I cannot escape that, nor can you deny it.

    So, I've been around/with probably every major religion on the planet & even traveled with a true and real wizard. My point being all these walks of life have utopia lost stories. Mankind lives in utopia, decides to make it "better", utopia and mankind are destroyed.

    And yes, nearly every religion teaches "you don't eat the dead, you eat what lives to live yourself." So yeah, I'm eating my beef on the hoof & running wild. Moo moo buckaroo.

    We've not yet learned?

    *HUG* @Jimi I apologize if my levity is a little off. Need coffee before thinking on serious things. *sighs*

    My Squash grew monster plants but they died off with root rot I guess. Beans are doing OK but the second planting never came up in seed starters only got one plant? Might do some more lettuce though.

    And this is why I haven’t been eating meat lately, even though I can get grass fed blah dee blah non factory farm meat. I’ve been eating pea protein sometimes, and nut butter. Not as satisfying as rare meat, but still pretty good.

    Howdy, how goes it? Tell us about the wizard one day.

    You still want to be very careful, a lot of deception at grocery stores anymore, some marked as grass fed is questionable,at least imo;)

    I’m getting food from a LI based CSA now. They have mostly organic stuff, grass fed/no antib/no hormone meat, and dairy from Ronnybrook Farm. I just don’t fancy meat right now, so I’m doing plant based protein.

    Indeed.

    Yes there is. I had to explain to my wife about the different reds in some beef. Some places use dyes, fillers to keep packed beef "fresh". I can spot which are dye packed from just plain old good and bloody.

    Just be careful in relying on plant based protein. A human being still needs protein coming from animals. Seems that's the only way to get decent B complex of vitamins. Yes, you can get B supplements but the better and likely best way is from animals.

    There's something to do with how it gets processed by another animal which helps our bodies in being able to use it. You need to keep I think it's B-12 up or you'll not be able to absorb nutrients well. Keep that going on and you'll starve your cells.

    Yep, tried vegan for a little while and did a bit of looking stuff up to accommodate that.

    My wizard friend was the son of a man that helped in building the NASA base in FL. He helped his dad and got to go up on the scaffolds as a rocket sat one morning for going out. He was/is a beautiful man with great power. The Native American called him Knife Hawk. He was something of a silver smith, knife maker.

    When I first met him I reached out to shake his hand. On us clasping hands, realized I had to hug him. He was very much the sage old grandfatherly type, yet still a child at heart who saw the most smallest things here on earth as full of wonder. He taught me a lot regarding Native Americans. Once we went around a Pow Wow invisible. We got caught by one of the elders there. He told us we owed him. I wound up having to fill a small water tower from a creek.

    He took me to a town in LA that was named Hell. In a greasy spoon there I had a cup of coffee, the spoon stood up in black tar & then turned green and melted into soupy drink. He was always "kidnapping" me from my dad so we could go out for day trips, or he could use me to help him clear some debts. I got used by a voodooin priestess to go through a part of a bayou gathering herbs. I was literally zombified, she would have no man know what she used for her spells. So I reckon in some way I could say yeah, I've cheated death twice.

    I don't want to be a zombie again like that. It just leaves a person feeling kind of yucky for a bit afterwards. Then, the whole implication of being "used" like that is just a little off putting. I did it though at that point because my wizard friend asked me nicely. He did take me to an exorcism after that, not my own, a Catholic father had asked him for help and needed someone who could see spirits/demons. I was invited in & I think the old father appreciated the help. The young father with him seemed to not quite understand what was happening, he was too much of a "modern" person.

    I don't hold that demons exist exactly, but I know evil does and yes there are beings that embody evil. And yes, you have to have your balls screwed on tight to fight them. Sorry but I know gals can have balls too. Saw my mom's, pretty brass ones she has. So yeah, hold on to 'em if you fight that evil. Better having some kind of friends too that eat monsters alive. Got the t-shirts. No, not bragging. I just lay out facts.

    Yeah, still love my wizard friend. Miss us going out on our adventures. Reckon I could get in touch. He still watches out over me, I feel, know. :) He knows though I'm living life and he sees what I'm doing pulling in some slack. Excuse me, need to ...

    So I planted another crop of Butter Crunch and Romaine Lettuce today and started some Green Bean seeds in the flats. Crossing my fingers that nothing eats my Green Bean Seeds. When I dumped the seed starters that did not grow I didn't find any of the beans so I think something ate them~!

    I planted the lettuce directly in the soil but the beans I did in the seed starters because they tend to come up faster and I can control how I plant them when they grow to a few inches.
