Were you told by your doctors that your stiff neck and shoulders is caused by high blood pressure? By means of the above movement, you will be able to understand if your stubborn stiff neck can be removed instantly or not. Upon wearing a clavicle splint or brace, you may not feel any stiffness anymore from the moment you lift up your shoulders, as the use of clavicle brace helps to rest and stabilize the bone.
We also recommend you to do a simple exercise of stretching arms just like the above illustration to help strengthen the muscles around the collarbone. Junji Takano is a Japanese health researcher involved in investigating the cause of many dreadful diseases.
As I will explain further below, we do know now that unopposed estrogen and xenoestrogens (these are estrogen-like substances in the environment like pesticides etc.) are the major cause for breast cancer, often in combination with several other breast cancer risk factors. The birth control pill (=oral contraceptives or BCP), which was originally feared to possibly produce breast cancer, does not pose an increased risk during the reproductive years as the ovarian function gets suppressed by it making the BCP breast cancer risk neutral or even 20% less frequent. However, in the menopause postmenopausal estrogen replacement (HRT) carries with it an estrogen side effect consisting of a 1.5 to 2-fold accumulative risk for breast cancer over a 10 to 20 year time span.
There is a peculiar linear relationship between total fat intake per day and the death rate from breast cancer.
Future research will focus on improving the third group, luminal B breast cancer, which now has the poorest prognosis and try to optimize the drugs (hopefully less side-effects) used for treating the other types. One mutation of this gene causes a 5-fold increase of breast cancer in Polish women, but another mutation of the same gene in French Canadian women makes it 50-times more likely that these women come down with breast cancer.
Analyzing the genes of 195 Polish and French-Canadian breast cancer patients with a history of breast cancer in their families completed the RECQL study; 20,000 genes were examined in this group. These genes are involved in the suppression of cancer cells through the production of proteins that help to repair damaged DNA. Radiation causes free radicals in the breast tissue that can lead to mutations of the DNA with a simple lung X-ray and within the course of 10 years this can cause a palpable breast cancer. Vitamin D3 deficiency can seriously affect the prognosis for breast cancer as this link shows. Only about 4% of breast cancer is caused by alcohol intake, but only if a woman drinks more than 1 alcoholic drink per day. Unfortunately not everybody can live in the country where the air is cleaner and we are not exposed to as many industrial chemicals. Cigarette smoking leads to an accumulation of toxic heavy metals and carcinogenic substances in breast tissue. When a woman has painful or lumpy breasts, it is more difficult for the woman or the physician to examine the breasts in order to detect early breast cancer. Some other hormones can be contributing factors in the causation of breast cancer as follows.
Another hormone is insulin, which is often elevated in the metabolic syndrome or insulin resistance, as it used to be called. Other risk factors for breast cancer can be hypothyroidism with high thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) levels, which is known to be carcinogenic.
Another important hormone is melatonin, which helps us to fall asleep naturally when it is getting dark. Prolactin is another hormone that can be a contributory factor to breast cancer development. Breast cancer is caused by genetic damage to the DNA of breast cells by unopposed estradiol due to poor diet habits, life style choices and environmental factors. This outline is only a teaching aid to patients and should stimulate you to ask the right questions when seeing your doctor. Eyelids that are swollen do not only make it hard for some individual to see, but can as well be quite annoying. Commonly known as pinkeye, this is red, itchy and swelling of the conjunctiva of the eye which is the protective membrane lining the eyelids as well as the exposed regions of the eyeball. This is inflammation of the margin of the eye and is usually caused by seborrheic dermatitis which is a skin disorder or bacterial infection. Styes are normally caused by infections from bacteria that occur in the oil or sweat producing glands at the base of the eyelashes.
Depending on the reason as well as the severity of the swollen eyelid, an individual may or may not need to seek attention from their eye physician.

What is type 2 diabetes mellitus?This glucose meter certainly shows high blood sugar, and it's about half what I saw on my initial doctor visit.
If you don't pay attention to it, it may lead to serious complications later on such as heart failure, stroke, and even death.
If so, it's likely that even your doctor's prescription for hypertension may not work at all. The problem is, you are somewhat hesitating to take the prescriptions because these are not working at all. And it sounds better than any other techniques since it does not have any serious side effects so far. In 1968, he invented PYRO-ENERGEN, the first and only electrostatic therapy machine that effectively eradicates viral diseases, cancer, and diseases of unknown cause. Here I am correcting this notion as we do know an awful lot about what causes breast cancer. For instance, it is known that the length of ovarian estrogen activity between the first period (menarche) and the last period (menopause) of a woman is directly related to breast cancer risk.
In the past it was thought that a reduced rate of osteoporosis and reduction in heart attacks would increase life expectancy overall with hormone replacement therapy following menopause. The triple negative breast cancer (also called basal-like breast cancer) had a great similarity to ovarian cancer and this likely is the reason why it responds to PARP inhibitors, which had previously been used successfully for ovarian cancer. The forth breast cancer is HER2-enriched breast cancer, where additional copies of the gene HER2 stimulates breast cancer growth.
The authors of this study mention that they concentrated on women with a European ancestry and a history of familial breast cancer. This research was a collaborative study between McGill University in Montreal, Canada and the Pomeranian Medical University in Poland. The results of this were compared to 25,000 other patients without a history of breast cancer to get a baseline. It will take some time to delineate the importance of the RECQL gene in addition to the known BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes with regard to the development of hereditary breast cancer.

During pregnancy the progesterone level gets raised as the placenta stimulates the corpus luteum to produce more progesterone. Trans-fatty acids, also known as hydrogenated oils or partially hydrogenated oils on food labels are a source of free radicals that lead to breast cancer. With more drinks there is competition in the liver between elimination of alcohol and estrogen metabolites. Many of these industrial pollutants of the city act like artificial estrogens (xenoestrogens). Overall the effect is that women who smoke developed breast cancer about 8 years earlier than controls that were not smoking (Ref.9). It can also be more difficult to get reliable mammography readings; with the introduction of MRI breast scans these patients have now another tool available that is reliable. Lee mentions that fluoride in tooth paste or fluoridated water replaces iodine in the body, which can lead to thyroid dysfunction and autoimmune thyroiditis (Hashimoto thyroiditis). It is known that estradiol will stimulate prolactin production of the pituitary gland, but not estriol. It is characterized by hypercalcemia and bone resorption, eventually leading to bone diseases. Of course, the super prescriptions that I'm about to give you may not work for you, but we have approximately 80% of high blood patients who benefited from it. The diuretic process works by inhibiting sodium reabsorption in the kidney, which will reduce the salt buildup in the body.
Kelps, bitter melon, papaya, sponge gourd (loofah), and mugwort, are some of the good foods.
The incidence curve of breast cancer is highest just prior to menopause and flattens out after.
However, this has been proven wrong in large trials that came out in 2004 and now the issue of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is in flux. This is due to an inherited mutation in a BRCA1 or BRCA2 breast cancer susceptibility gene, which can now be determined with special blood tests. Luminal B breast cancer needs to be treated with a combination of hormone therapy and chemotherapy and may still have a poorer prognosis than luminal A breast cancer.
Herceptin is a drug (trastuzumab) that blocks HER2 and changed this type of cancer from one of the worst cancers to treat to one with the best outcome. Based on this it was apparent that women with mutated RECQL genes were highly susceptible to developing breast cancer. This protects the pregnancy, but has a long-lasting effect of protecting the woman from breast cancer. Girls who here exposed to the ionizing radiation during the bombing of Hiroshima during World War II had a two-fold risk of developing breast cancer.
As a result alcoholic women will develop estrogen dominance (also because progesterone production decreases). However, exposure to other xenoestrogens from nail polish, nail polish removers, pesticides in the house or garden, herbicides or plastic that leaches into soft drinks of plastic bottles, will all also lead to estrogen dominance and thus poses a breast cancer risk. We need DHEA production to have normal sex hormones and to have a normally functioning immune system. This can lead to milk production (discharge of milk from the nipples), an annoying symptom to the woman affected by it. Eat organic meat to avoid growth factors from the food industry, lots of vegetables and fresh fruit for protective nutrients and enzymes.
Treatment may be simple and can be done by using a clavicle brace, similar to the photos below. In addition it is also known that apart from the physical factors mentioned below breast cancer can also be caused by chronic stress.
Another observation, which supports this, is the fact that removal of both ovaries (oophorectomy) at a younger age reduces the risk for breast cancer later in life.
Currently the thinking is that one has to individualize therapy, use good nutrition and exercise to prevent osteoporosis and in the case of control of hot flashes use the lowest possible estrogen hormone replacement for less than a total of 5 years.
The adjusted death rate from breast cancer in the Netherlands is 25-fold higher than in El Salvador.
As the lifetime incidence of breast cancer in mutation carriers is above 50 percent, these women have to be screened much more vigorously as the rest of the female population.
Luminal A breast cancer responds well to anti estrogen measures as it has estrogen receptors.
The earlier a woman gets pregnant and the more pregnancies she has, the more breast cancer protection she gets. Unfortunately, there is a risk of breast cancer as a result of yearly mammograms, which are done with the best of intentions of early detection of breast cancer.
Peter Ellison of Harvard University has noted that higher calorie intake and lower exercise levels are risk factors for the development of breast cancer (mentioned on page 43 of Ref.
45) mentions that the Harvard Nurses’ Health Study compared a large cohort of nurses who exercised moderately (seven or more hours per week) with those who exercised less than 1 hour per week.
When people eat too much sugar and starch the pancreas gets over stimulated to produce insulin. When experiments were done with human breast cancer cells in tissue culture, added melatonin was able to suppress breast cancer cell growth by 75%.
Natural progesterone cream gets absorbed systemically and will reduce Prolactin levels and the symptoms stop.
Avoid sugar, alcohol (except for the occasional glass of wine), cut down or best cut out flour and pasta and engage in regular exercise to complete your simple breast cancer prevention program. It may not work if you have poor kidney function, or if you have an advanced arteriosclerosis.
Although we do not have all the answers why breast cancer deaths (and by the way many other cancer rates as well) are lower with less fat intake, it is self explanatory that a diet with less than 40 grams of fat per day is highly recommendable to prevent breast cancer and also heart attacks. These women come from families where close female relatives had early onset breast cancers (late twenties to mid thirties).
On the other hand the removal of the ovaries (bilateral ovariectomy), which leads to a sudden lack of estrogens, progesterone and testosterone, causes a reduction in breast cancer also. The end result was a 20% less risk for developing breast cancer in the group who exercised moderately.
Organochlorines (pesticides, insecticides) such as DDT accumulate in breast tissue and function as xenoestrogens causing breast cancer. 8, page 39 and 40) that these types of patients have estrogen dominance due to a lack of progesterone leading to persistent cysts and the gradual development of lumpy breasts.

After the age of 25 we produce 2% less every year and this likely is the reason for immune weaknesses and autoimmune diseases as we age. On the one hand the excess insulin functions as a growth factor and early breast cancer cells will respond to this by multiplying faster. Clinical studies in women with breast cancer showed that they had much less nighttime melatonin levels in urine than a control group of women with no breast cancer ((Ref.8, p. But do you believe that about 60-70% of people can benefit from it according to the data collected.
8 explains that the reason for the peak about 5 years before menopause is the dropping off of progesterone production (missing ovulations, corpus luteus insufficiency). However, the latter condition causes heart disease and osteoporosis and physicians have long treated this with HRT. But intake of milk produced in the US also is a risk factor for breast cancer due to the common practice of giving cows the milk stimulant recombinant bovine growth hormone. 9 reports that the Nurses’ Health Study found that women consuming between 3-9 drinks per week were 30% more at risk of developing breast cancer than women who were non-drinkers. After transdermal application of natural progesterone cream the lumpy breasts will normalize within 3 to 6 months. On the other hand under the influence of high insulin the pituitary gland produces relatively more LH (luteinizing hormone) in relation n to FSH (follicle stimulating hormone).
Lee progesterone is inhibiting the actions of estrogen and prolactin by down-regulating the receptors for these hormones (Ref. The longer a woman is under the influence of estrogen dominance (unopposed by progesterone), the higher the risk for cancer initiation, promotion and progression of breast cancer cells. Unfortunately, many physicians treated with estrogens only as this will take care of the hot flashes, but due to estrogen dominance will also cause breast cancer. Lee explains that mammography will detect breast cancer about 1 year earlier than a woman can through breast self examination. Humans who consume this type of contaminated milk produce the growth factor IGF-1 in their livers, which is a known cause of breast cancer. A woman with estrogen dominance is significantly at risk to develop breast cancer at a later date, but following hormone balancing with progesterone this risk disappears. Lee (Ref.8) says that DHEA levels are a biomarker of aging as much as grey hair or the need for bifocals is.
This in turn changes how ovaries function in that with the relative low FSH a dominant follicle never develops for ovulation, but instead many follicles develop in the ovaries that finally lead to polycystic ovary syndrome.
As melatonin is similar to DHEA in that we produce it at much lower levels when we age, it is wise to take supplemental melatonin of 1 mg at bedtime. 10 shows that there was a breakthrough in treatment success when triple negative breast cancer (estrogen receptor negative, progesterone receptor negative, HERS negative) was treated with gemcitabine and carboplatin, which are so-called PARP inhibitors (pharmacological inhibitors of the enzyme poly ADP ribose polymerase), normally used for ovarian cancer. The proper biological hormone replacement is to determine hormone levels and replace what is missing (with bioidentical estrogen, progesterone and testosterone creams from a compounding pharmacist).
However, as breast cancer has a relatively good prognosis with early detection he cites literature from Sweden that showed that most studies were flawed with selection bias and that the two studies that were well designed showed no effect of mammography screening on breast cancer mortality. If you want to drink milk, insist on certified hormone free milk or organically certified milk. 9 cites a National Cancer Institute study where risk reduction for breast cancer was studied in young women.
With persistent follicles there is a lack of progesterone production as there is no corpus luteum (no ovulation).
Bio-identical hormone supplementation based on saliva hormone testing as described under Ref. Both of these synthetic hormone-like mixtures of estrogenic and progesterone-like substances from the drug companies block estrogen receptors in the woman’s body.
8) explains that there are free radicals contained in bad fats (the trans-fats and in polyunsaturated fatty acids such as in corn oil that turn rancid easily). The cancer genome ATLAS network has further characterized at least 4 genetically distinct types of breast cancer when they analyzed the biopsy material from 802 patients with breast cancer (Ref.11). In view of newer technologies without the use of radiation, I would suggest that the occasional MRI mammography study likely will show survival benefits when combined with self breast examination, early surgical intervention and other life style changes.
It showed that exercise from 1 to 3 hours per week lowered the risk of breast cancer by 30%. The more anovulatory cycles there are, the more estrogen dominant the woman becomes (can be measured in blood or saliva tests) and this is a risk for developing breast cancer.
8 is also very effective on top of these other recommendations (melatonin, DHEA, bio-identical progesterone cream).
This leads to a lack of ovulation in the case of the BCP with associated suppression of progesterone production. Butter and olive oil are more stable and will not cause these problems except that they need to be limited in the total daily dose as indicated. When too many calories are consumed the body will store the excess calories as fat in the body. Exercise and a sensible low fat, low refined (but high unprocessed) carbohydrate diet will turn this condition around and help you to shed pounds with ease. HRT on the other hand is using high doses of a number of estrogens (Premarin) and when this is combined with progestins (as synthetic progesterone like drugs are called) there is not the balancing effect of natural progesterone.
It is metabolized, leads to hardening of arteries, and causes insulin to get elevated (the syndrome of hyperinsulinism or metabolic syndrome). As insulin has growth hormone-like attributes, any breast cancer cell will get stimulated in growth and metastasize earlier than in a lean woman with normal fasting insulin levels. Again, there is an estrogen dominant state with a lack of progesterone production, which would have balanced the cell division effects of estrogen.
Insulin as a last resortYou may think the above is a bit tongue-and-cheek, but I assure you, it is not. So how serious is it a€“ really?I am trying to remove some of the fear for you, but please don't take the previous paragraph too light hearted.
