The Endocannabinoid System & Cancer

cannabis vs cancer“This year, 2017, the first human trial of cannabinoids for their anti-tumor properties was done in Europe with patients who had recurrent Gliobastoma, the deadliest brain tumor,” explains Dr. Jeffrey Chen, Director of the new UCLA Cannabis Research Initiative launching in late 2017.

“Patients either received 1:1 THC/CBD ratio along with chemo therapy vs placebo along with chemotherapy. The group that received cannabinoids had 83% survival rate at year 1, whereas the placebo (i.e. non-cannabinoid) group only had a 53% survival rate. While this was a small and preliminary study, it seems that cannabinoids may boost survival for this type of cancer,” continues Chen. “However, not all cancers have cannabinoid receptors and thus won’t respond this way. This is just one of countless questions we have about cannabis and why we are launching the UCLA Cannabis Research Initiative.”

Endocannabinoid systemThe Endocannabinoid System (ECS) was discovered only 25 years ago in 1992 by Dr. Rafael Mechoulam, of Hebrew University, Israel. However, understanding of the significance of the ECS wasn’t known until recently. The ECS is the largest natural network of receptors in the human body and acts as the master regulator / modulator responsible for balance and homeostasis of the body by naturally modulating the flow of neurotransmitters in the immune system and central nervous system.

“Discovery of the Endocannabinoid System is the single most important scientific medical discovery ever in medicine. More people will be a saved by ECS than by surgery,” explains Dr. Ira Price, Assistant Clinical Professor in the Division of Emergency Medicine at the Department of Internal Medicine, McMaster University, Ontario, Canada. Price was one of four panelist on Cannabis, Science and Your Body, speaker series at this year’s Emerald Exchange Farmer’s Market, where organic cannabis farmers from the Emerald Triangle, (the largest cannabis growing region in the US comprised of Mendocino, Sonoma and Humboldt counties) networked with the world’s largest cannabis distributors in Los Angeles County.

GW Pharmaceuticals, a big pharma company in the UK, announced its proprietary cannabinoid product for epilepsy called Epidiolex, which uses whole plant extracts. Phase 3 trials demonstrated that CBD., (titrated up to 20mg/kg/day) produced significantly greater reductions in drop seizures vs. placebo in patients with Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome (LGS), which can be caused by a number of conditions, including brain malformations, severe head injuries, central nervous system infections and inherited degenerative or metabolic conditions. In up to 30 percent of patients, no cause for LLGS can be found. Epidiolex should be FDA approved and available on the market by end of 2017.

“In the United States cannabis remains a schedule I drug, like heroin and LSD, which creates massive barriers to research and significantly reduces the amount of funding for this kind of research. If you’re a researcher wanting to study the medical potential of cannabis, you’ll have to get creative because the feds won’t really fund it,” explains Chen. “However, some big pharma companies have obtained waivers to isolate individual cannabinoid molecules, such as THC or non-psychotropic CBD, which when separate from the whole plant, falls into a separate regulatory scheme and is easier to work with,” Chen further explains.

Big Pharma in the U.S. looks to isolate specific cannabinoids such as CBD, (cannabidiol), CBG (cannabigerol), CBN (cannabinol), CBC (cannabichromene), THCV (tetrahydrocannabivarin), THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) and others to come up with formulas that can be patented to treat specific cancers. However, EmEx expert panelists in science, research and cultivation say there are 84-100 cannabinoids in the whole cannabis plant which contain a broader spectrum of cannabinoids which work together to produce the entourage effect believed essential for full therapeutic benefit.

Sativex, another GW pharmaceutical product, is a patented oromucosal spray containing extracts of THC and CBD as well as specific minor cannabinoids and other non-cannabinoid components. It is also undergoing testing in North America for use as a cancer pain reliever under the name Nabiximols. The drug is already available by prescription in Canada, the United Kingdom and throughout much of Europe for the treatment of various indications, including multiple sclerosis.

Johnny Stash works at the other end of the spectrum as a cannabis cultivator and Director of Agriculture at CA-Labs. He works with farms so that consistent product can be supplied to the researchers. “We have our research scientists on the farm so we can have a collaborative effort,” says Stash.

IMG_5098Rather than isolating cannabinoids for use in extractions for a specific ailment, Johnny Stash believes in the greater benefit of the entourage effect. “We are trying to develop strains that contain all 84 cannabinoids in one plant,” explains Stash. “So far we have developed one strain that has 12 cannabinoids. There is a reason why humans have so many receptors in the body for cannabinoids. Mother Nature got it right,” says Stash. “Let’s see what they all do together! Let the plant do the work.”

Michael Masterman-Smith, PhD has spent 15 years as a cancer biologist and biotechnology leader. Masterson-Smith co-discovered cancer stem cells in soft tissue cancers. His studies in petrie dishes showed cancer stem cells are treatable through cannabinoid receptors that kill cancer cells. He learned that creating synthetic cannabinoids and isolating certain molecules also creates certain toxicity. Whereas when produced naturally using the whole plant, you don’t have toxicity. Lack of funding prevented further clinical trials. In August 2016, Masterson-Smith co-founded CA Labs, Inc., a boutique pharmaceutical company focused on the development of phytochemicals (plant-based drugs) to treat diseases. They are looking for funding for more research on whole plant medicine.

When US pharmaceutical companies start patenting synthesized cannabinoid proprietary formulas they will eventually get FDA approval so doctors can prescribe their products. With FDA approval insurance companies will then have to pay or partial pay for these prescriptions. This could be good and economical for the consumer on one hand, but on the other hand, the patient loses the beneficial entourage effect of whole plant medicine. In addition, synthetic formulas, like most pharmaceuticals, have toxins in them that cause adverse side effects to the nervous system, immune system and gastro-intestinal system. Only those people who can afford whole plant extracts will be able to buy pure whole plant products.

Changing Cancer’s Image

Porchia quote Each DayThere is no longer any doubt that the principles and practice of Mind-Body Medicine influence what happens in the physical body. Studies show that Optimists enjoy greater health and wellness than do pessimists, especially when facing a health challenge.

Positive Self-talk and cultivating positive emotions can boost immune function, lower blood pressure, combat heart disease, aid in weight control, healthier blood sugar and counter depression. These are some of the principles of Mind-Body Medicine.

Twenty seven years ago Dr. Wendy Schlessel-Harpham, was a practicing internist when she learned she had non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a cancer of the immune system. Dr. Harpham followed traditional cancer protocols for 15 years following her diagnosis and experienced eight relapses of her cancer. Then she decided to change behaviors in her life and set the stage for happiness. She surrounded herself with people who lifted her spirits, kept a daily gratitude journal, did something good for someone else each day and watched funny, uplifting movies.*

“Fostering positive emotions helped make my life the best it could be,” said Dr. Harpham. “They made the tough times easier, even though they didn’t make any difference in my cancer cells.”

Dr. Harpham wrote “Happiness In A Storm,” her personal experience as a medical expert who transformed her emotional relationship to her cancer diagnosis and continues to thrive cancer free for the past 12 years.

Changing Cancer’s Image to support a strong immune system by changing a cancer patient’s relationship to traditional treatment.

Whether a person chooses traditional chemo, radiation and surgery for cancer or not, how one holds thoughts and emotions in their body makes all the difference in how a person faced with cancer supports their immune function.

Fear creates an internal emotional environment that triggers the freeze, flight or flight response in the autonomic nervous system, which causes the secretion of stress hormones called cortisols which further inhibit immune function.

When a person changes their mental-emotional relationship to cancer treatment to one of positivity, they boost immune function by increasing production of T-cells, or T lymphocyte, a sub-type of white blood cell that plays a central role in cell-mediated immunity.

Chemosabe became Elizabeth’s new warrior friend who’s expert targeting went after only damaged cancer cells, leaving healthy cells untouched by the 24/7 chemotherapy treatment

Elizabeth’s “Chemosabe” Warrior Friend
When Porchia’s advance stage cancer client Elizabeth showed up for her first holistic stress reduction and spiritual healing session with Porchia it was the same day she had her port inserted into her chest for 24/7 automatic delivery of her chemo treatment.

One of the first things Porchia and Elizabeth worked on was to “make friends” with the shoulder pack she had to wear for the next six weeks. They came up with the name of “Chemosabe” who became Elizabeth’s warrior friend who delivered just the right amount of prescribed “medicine” to only damaged cancer cells in her body, visualizing that all other healthy areas of her body were remaining untouched by Chemosabe’s expert targeting.

Healing Cancer In This Century Global Summit

Healing Cancer SummitCarlos Caridad Summit 1 - Copy
Dianne Porchia interview by Carlos Caridad for the Healing Cancer In This Century Global Summit.

Watch Porchia video interview NOW

Carlos: What do you think causes cancer?

Porchia: What causes cancer is a very complex question that involves more than only one factor.

The latest research on stress, the emotions and cancer, shows that emotional traumas, if left unresolved, CAN lead to cancer. When emotional trauma is unhealed it creates a constant state of heightened stress in the body, which lowers immune function and heightens disease in general.

The Sympathetic Nervous System is responsible for the freeze, fight or flight response in acute situations like encountering a rattlesnake on a trail, whereby survival hormones adrenaline and cortisols flood the bloodstream, thereby altering genetic code while preparing to take action to a dangerous life-threatening situation. As soon as the traumatizing event passes the body returns to homeostasis within about an hour.

Under chronic stress, including unhealed emotional trauma, the FFF response remains triggered and stress hormones remain elevated in the body creating a chronic stress condition with prolonged genetic alternation which can lead to a number of pro-cancer processes including:

Freeze, Fight or Flight response activates the following pro-cancer processes:

i. Activation of inflammatory response
ii. Inhibited immune response
iii. Inhibition of programmed cancer cell death
iv. Reduction of cytotoxic function of Natural Killer cells
v. Inhibition on DNA repair
vi. Stimulation of cancer cell angiogenesis
vii. Activation of “epithelial-mesenchymal transition” which creates new cancer stem cells

Physically, everyone has damaged cells in their body that have the potential to mutate into cancer cells. It is a strong functioning immune system that keeps these damaged cells in check by eliminating what is no longer needed by the body through the various excretory systems of the body which regulates body fluid and removes waste such as, urine, feces, carbon dioxide, sweat, bile and worn out cells.
On the physical level nurturing and caring for your body through healthful diet, nutrition, exercise and maintaining regular healthy poops is paramount.

Porchia Quote Even shit can transformOn the Mental Level from early childhood, we all learn coping and survival strategies that we take into our adult lives, and use them in our relationships, at our workplace, with friends and social situations. These protection strategies serve us well for a certain number of years until the day comes that we realize some of these protection mechanisms embedded in our brains have created limiting beliefs, walls and barriers to the love, connection and success we want in our lives.

Watch all speakers in Global Summit

When a person wakes up to this fact and wants to break through the constraints of past limitations they may start to read self-help books and work with a personal coach or therapist so they can achieve more happiness and fulfillment in their life.

When a person resists the natural human desire to grow, learn and expand, or wants to grow but never seems to get past all the road blocks that keep showing up, 98% of the time these blocks and barriers to their goals are limiting beliefs fueled by a strong inner saboteur voice.

Emotionally how one feels about their Self has everything to do with the inner dialogue that runs in their head. Emotions follow thoughts and if the thought is “I’m not smart enough to go for a higher paid job,” the emotion that follows is hopelessness, despair, unworthiness, shame. The person might choose to quiet or numb the negative inner saboteur voice through over use of alcohol, drugs, food, sex, high risk activities. However, no matter what the self-medication efforts are, in the end the inner saboteur voice remains unwavering.

Carlos: You reference the work of two important doctors in your holistic work. Can you talk about them?

Porchia: The most significant study that has come out in the last couple of years about cancer survivors is very revealing and supports my experience working with cancer clients in the last ten years.

Radical Remission bookKelly Turner, PhD asked the question oncologists are not interested in asking of their patients. She found 1000 cases of advance stage cancer patients that went into spontaneous remission, which she calls Radical Remission because there is nothing spontaneous about these patients’ process. Dr. Turner asked “What did you do that cured your cancer?”

In ten years Dr. Turner traveled the world and tracked down 1000 documented cases spontaneous remission for advance stage cancer. She found 75 things they all did in common that they felt made a difference in curing their cancer.

7 of 9 top things these cancer survivors did were mental-emotional and spiritual practices, while the other two things were nutritional.

Dr. Kelly’s 10-year study further validated what healers, integrative practitioners and spiritualists have known and practiced for many years. It is important to consider the whole person: what they are doing physically, nutritionally, lifestyle, psychologically and emotionally.

Bruce Lipton Biology of BeliefCellular Biologist Bruce Lipton explains the human cell can move in either a positive or negative response according to how it experiences or perceives its environment, but it cannot move in both directions at the same time.

Watch all speakers in Global Summit

When it is moving in the positive direction cells respond by supporting immune function and producing more T-cells. When cells move in a negative direction they go into Protection mode, triggering FFF response and suppressing immune function.

Carlos: How do you work with your cancer clients ?

Porchia: First, I listen to their story and take notes. I learn about their current relationships, family members, work. I can tell a lot about a person and how they operate in the world by listening to what they say and how they relate their personal story. I can identify if this person has experienced some sort of trauma, abuse, neglect in their history, or has low self-esteem, anger, resentment. Once I feel I have a good basic idea of their current profile, I introduce deeper process work where we get out of the head and the mind, where all the protection mechanisms reside, and down into the heart-soul level where true healing can take place.

Carlos: Most people rely upon their mind to figure out what to do and how to navigate all the information that is out there about cancer. Why do you want your clients to get out of their mind?

Porchia: As soon as someone hears the word cancer, their mind automatically goes into fear, which is a natural first reaction to any life-threatening situation. The emotion of fear triggers an automatic freeze, flight or fight response in the nervous system, which causes the release of adrenaline and stress hormones called cortisols, which weaken the immune system.

When a person has cancer this means their immune system is already greatly compromised and has been compromised for a long time,most likely due to chronic stress either from exposure to toxins in the physical environment or from toxic thinking on the mental and subconscious levels which cause emotional stress.

Porchia Quote Feel BeautyI guide my clients out of their head and into their heart-centered awareness for deep process work because this is the level that healing takes place emotionally. An inner realm of self-loving, self-nurturing and self-honoring boosts immune function and T-cell production.

Carlos: What is toxic thinking that causes mental-emotional stress?

Porchia: Examples of toxic thinking are found in statements of blame, jealousy, judgment, rigid thinking, guilt, shame which are directed towards other people or directed to one Self.

Toxic behavior can be found in workplace environments and at home where old style management and parenting motivates through intimidation, barking demands, devaluation, bullying, humiliation, and condescending remarks that hurt feelings, dis-empower and make others feel badly about themselves, their performance and their value at work.

Porchia Quote I AMToxikon in Latin means “arrow poison”. Poison people that spew out criticisms, judgments and blame often come from families that exhibited similar behavior. Toxic behavior is learned and gets passed down from one generation to the next.

Watch all speakers in Global Summit

Just being around toxic behavior, even if you’re not the target for meanness, makes people sick. It triggers a stress reaction and the freeze, flight or fight response with the secretion of stress hormones that weaken the immune system. Chronic stress is linked to cardiovascular disease, insomnia, over eating, hypertension, gastrointestinal disorders, infertility, tension headaches.

Toxic behavior and chronic stress affects memory, ability to recall information, think clearly, problem solve and performance at work which affects overall productivity at work and bottom line profits for business.

Carlos: What does it mean when you refer to toxic thinking on the subconscious level?

Porchia quote Each DayMental and emotional stress can be either conscious or unconscious,residing in the subconscious mind. It’s the mind that gets people into the place of imbalance and illness to begin with. Einstein said you can’t solve a problem with the same mindset that created the problem in the first place.

The mental-emotional stress that I uncover with many of my cancer clients is chronic worry, anxiety, fear and limiting beliefs about their self, self-worth and value, often stemming from childhood experiences.

On the subconscious level, an inner saboteur voice is constantly saying “You’re not good enough. You’re not smart enough. You’re not lovable.“ An inner saboteur voice also uses negating and dis-empowering BUT statements, i.e.

• I would exercise more, BUT it’s too cold, too hot to go outside.
• I want to get a new job BUT I can’t compete with younger people in the market place.
• I know drinking so much is bad for me, BUT it’s the only thing that relaxes me.

Carlos: How do you get a person out of their head and into their heart?

Porchia: One of the techniques I use to get my clients out of their head and into their heart-soul centered awareness is called somatic dialogue. Much like hypnosis, I guide my clients through a closed eye process wherein we access the subconscious and call in the guidance of Spirit to assist in the process. My clients are able to access past trauma, pain, hurt, disappointment and misunderstandings, usually stemming from early childhood. This emotional pain shows up in the physical body as discomfort, tightness and if left un-healed can turn into illness and disease.

Carlos: Do your clients need to see you in person to do this deeper work?

Porchia: I usually do this deeper process work in person which gives me the benefit of being able to read all the non-verbal ques in body language, breathing, facial expression, etc. However, I’ve worked very successfully over the phone with many clients by first tuning into their energy through a photograph.

Carlos: You work mainly on the mental-emotional-spiritual levels. What do you tell your clients about the physical level and nutrition?

Porchia: On the physical level I ask my clients how well their digestive tract works. Do they have regular daily bowel movements? Do they have constipation, irritable bowel or acid-reflux? Do they have gum disease? Do they get enough sleep at the right time of day? Do they exercise or at least walk daily?

Keeping a clean moving intestinal tract is primary of importance.

Watch all speakers in Global Summit

Primary organs of the excretory system include the following:

i. Kidneys which filter and remove waste through urine
ii. Lungs which expel carbon dioxide from the body with each exhalation, (why aerobic exercise and diaphragmatic breathing is important for detoxifying the body)
iii. Skin, the largest organ of your body which removes waste through sweat glands. Your skin also absorbs 60% of the products you use topically. (why it’s important to not clog your skin’s pores with lotions containing synthetic chemicals, preservatives, dyes and additives with names you can’t pronounce. Why I created Topanga Tonics pure, organic super food for your skin.

Secondary organs of the excretory system are:

i. Liver which breaks down and detoxifies harmful poisons and chemicals that are either produced in the body or consumed; i.e. too much alcohol, iron, Vitamin A, certain prescription and herbal medications, too much acetaminophen, poisonous wild mushrooms
ii. Things that can damage your liver: sugar, high fructose corn syrup, herbal supplement kava kava, partially hydrogenated ingredients that are high in trans fats, fatty foods high in saturated fats, carrying extra fat & obesity, soft drinks, Hepatitis C, too much wine (moderate in 1 p/day women & 2 p/day men), fatty foods
iii. Gallbladder helps break down fats, ethanol and other acidic wastes
iv. Ureters & Urethras which carry liquid waste, urine and semen
v. Large Intestine and entire length of the intestinal tract and colon

Carlos: In addition to somatic dialogue what other processes or techniques do you use and teach your clients?

Porchia: Techniques I use include meditation, mindfulness, visualization, diaphragmatic breathing, Qi Gong self-healing.

Process work I use includes inner child healing work, sacred anger work, somatic dialogue, compassionate self-forgiveness, and anchoring new positive ways of thinking and being through neuro-linguistic programming (NLP).

Carlos: How can people get in touch with you?

Porchia: I offer concierge services and Life In Balance holistic wellness retreats in Topanga, California and internationally. I work with celebrities, executives and other high profile people where privacy, confidentiality is very important and individual attention is given to each client’s specific needs.

Porchia is based in Topanga, California, is available for phone / FaceTime calls and can make house / office calls within a specified radius.

Dianne Porchia, MA, DMBM Mater Degree Spiritual Psychology, Diplomat Mind-Body Medicine

Dianne Porchia is honored to be featured in the documentary film HEAL for her holistic stress reduction and spiritual healing work with advance stage cancer client Elizabeth Craig. Four years after diagnosis of stage IV anal cancer Elizabeth remains No Evidence of Disease (NED)!

Writer/Director/Producer Kelly Noonan and Producer Adam Schomer’s (Highest Pass) documentary takes us on a scientific and spiritual journey where we discover that our thoughts, beliefs, and emotions have a huge impact on our health and ability to heal. The latest science reveals that we are not victims of unchangeable genes, nor should we buy into a scary prognosis. The fact is we have more control over our health and life than we have been taught to believe.

This film will empower you with a new understanding of the miraculous nature of the human body and the extraordinary healer within us all.

HEAL includes notable names in science, spirituality and wellness such as Bruce Lipton, Deepak Chopra, Marianne Williamson, Michael Beckwith, Gregg Braden, Kelly Turner, Anita Moorjani, to mention a few.

Porchia met her client Elizabeth by chance, or synchronicity if you will, on the street in front of the UCLA Medical Building. “Elizabeth showed up for her first session the day she got her port inserted for chemo treatment. It was very scary to think about the poison she was receiving through a delivery device she had to carry on her shoulder 24/7 with a tube and port that went into her chest,” describes Porchia.

“To reduce worry and stress I had to help Elizabeth find a way to make friends with this potent cocktail she had to endure for six weeks,” Porchia explains further. “We came up with the name Chemosabe for her new shouldered friend and visualized Chemosabe’s ‘medicine’ targeting only the damaged cells in her body.”

Not knowing what the outcome would be for the same diagnosis that Farah Fawcette died from, Elizabeth was very brave and still focusing on helping others. She allowed Porchia to video their sessions together saying if her experience could help others going through cancer then it was worth documenting her whole process.

There were other ups and downs during Liz’s treatment and Porchia was by her side for most of it, documenting as much as possible. When Elizabeth received her post treatment scan it showed No Evidence of Disease (NED). This day was a very tearful and joyful occasion as Liz made phone calls to family and friends with the good news. The two women celebrated with shots of wheat grass.

After Elizabeth achieved NED, Porchia decided to move forward with the idea of making Messengers of Hope documentary film on Elizabeth’s experience. Never having made a film before Porchia started reading books on film making, going to film maker networking meetings, asking questions and looking for people who could help her with the project for little to no compensation. It all seemed quite overwhelming to do. Then life got in the way of Porchia’s plans and the Messengers project got put on hold indefinitely.

Out of nowhere another synchronicity showed up. One of Porchia’s previous network outreaches introduced her to an experienced documentary film maker who was doing a project on healing for conscious cinema at Elevate Entertainment. Adam Schomer contacted Porchia and she remembered seeing his award winning Highest Pass documentary at the Topanga Film Festival 2011. Adam wanted to include a segment on healing cancer in his new film HEAL, and Porchia already had the perfect footage on the entire process of cancer from diagnosis, through treatment, to all clear results. How perfect a fit. Spirit and the guiding force in the Universe showing up again!

Sugar and Conflicting Information Part I

When it comes to sugar in our diet there is a huge amount of conflicting information out there as to what truly qualifies as ‘healthy’. It’s truly a vital question that is largely unanswered. This posting is a two-part series by Billy Merritt, creator of Infinity Greens Superfoods which Porchia’s WISH highly endorses for creating and maintaining optimum health.

Part I: How to get your sugar intake on the right track for truly enhancing your health. Natural forms of sugar, aka glucose, is important for our health! It’s fuel that is quickly available to the body. While complex carbohydrates and fats can take hours to break down into fuel, sugar is put to use almost instantly.

Doughnuts The proof is in the (over-sweetened) pudding – As a society, we’ve gone way down the wrong path with sugar. The sugar most people are likely to ingest today is highly-processed, refined sugar, aka sucrose, which creates a scary amount of wear and tear on the body.

The weakening effect sugar has on the body can cause many health problems incljuding the following:

Obesity – stuffing fat cells from high-glycemic calories is the body’s natural defense to remedy the dangers of spiking blood sugar levels, from which comes… Diabetes – the body’s intelligence with managing insulin levels can essentially be nullified by sugar.

Cancer – Sugar feeds cancer cells. Processed sugar speeds the production of mutated cancer cells.

OsteoporosisSugar damages and weakens cartilage which affects bone health. Bones are made up of 65% mineralized collagen that gives bones their solid infrastructure and 35% collagen matrix shaped like a crisscrossed protein similar to a beehive.

Digestive disorders – Sugar can cause growth of fungus candida, leaky gut and ulcers that can cause holes in the intestines.

tummy ache childEmotional and behavioral issues especially with children, have clinically been linked to sugar.

Hormone imbalance, weakened immune and neurological system, can all be distorted by processed sugar.

The simple fact that sugar makes the body weaker, thus more susceptible to disease.

Processed sugar is in everything on the shelves in stores, even in “natural” foods, such as cereal, crackers, yogurt, baked goods, and of all kinds “low-fat” snacks, and sadly, even at your natural food store.

Even worse are sweetened packaged drinks such as soda, energy drinks, sport drinks, and bottled tea. The manufacturers of these foods and drinks are clever, though. You won’t necessarily find the word “sugar” in the ingredients. What you’ll see instead is something like “evaporated cane juice.” What’s evaporated cane juice? You guessed it: sugar.

Sugar is chemically addictive. If you have sugar more than occasionally nd quit 100% cold-turkey, you’ll experience withdrawl symptoms such as sugar cravings, fatigue and headaches as your liver, kidneys and the gastro-intestinal system are detoxing. In most cases, this runs its course for one to two weeks after which it’s likely you’ll never want to go back. That’s your body’s wisdom kicking in, now that the sugar spell is broken!

However, your body needs sugar, so give it good sugars that come with benefits such as vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and enzymes!

Kale salad with fruitFind healthy good sugars in the organic produce section of your local grocery store. Fruit! This is where the elite sugar hangs out. Matching your sugar intake primarily with fruit is fundamental solution behind getting the whole dilemma resolved!

Part II on the topic of sugar will identify how to make sugar a life-force enhancing ally while losing weight, too, if that is what you need.

Infinity Greens Super Foods – Why It is Essential To Your Health

Infinity Greens SuperfoodsDear Health Enthusiast,

When I say ‘essential’, I consider this one to be among the few most important categories of food to be in our everyday diet. It’s green foods! We’re talking about foods like kale, arugula, chard, mustard greens, parsley, cilantro, spinach, basil, broccoli, and blue-green algae. (Algae? Yep. We’ll be talking about this subject shortly.)

What makes these foods so important for a healthy diet? There are two reasons and one might surprise you. The first is obvious: green foods are rich in nutrients, especially the antioxidants that help the body to maintain its youth and vitality. The second reason often gets overlooked.

Order NOW

Greens are vital for removing toxins from the body. Our bodies are bombarded with toxins every day. In the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the food we eat, we’re exposed to impurities that people never had to worry about before. Add to it the normal everyday stresses from life itself, and you can readily see why the cleansing goodness of greens is so important to our diets and health. The impact of greens in your diet is huge!

The Magic behind Greens
What specifically is it about greens that gives them the unmatched power to cleanse and restore our bodies from toxins? Chlorophyll. This is the magical element in green foods. (It’s also what makes them green.) It’s the chlorophyll itself that bonds to toxins in your body, enabling them to be eliminated via the gastrointestinal system. This is indeed a critical means of avoiding the build-up of toxins in your body. Consider that it’s the build-up of toxins that’s a primary instigator of disease, as well as aging.

The Weight-Loss Connection
Interestingly, bodily fat attempts to protect the body from toxins, too. This is a little-known reason that losing fat can be so difficult. Collectively, fat cells absorb toxins from the bloodstream for the sake of protecting vital organs. It’s a temporary form of self defense. The problem is that when the body needs to later burn this “toxic fat-fuel” for energy, it becomes reluctant to do so because that means toxins would go back into the bloodstream (which would then cause wear and tear on other things in the body). So let green foods fulfill their vital role of removing toxins, making way for fat to be burned as fuel.

Additionally, green foods are very low calorie, and this factor coupled with the nutrient density makes way for satisfying the appetite with fewer calories. Naturally, this enhances the potential for weight loss, which statistically should be a priority for more people than not. Fat reduction: just one more reason for adding more green foods to your diet!

So from a dietary standpoint, think “clean and green.” Introduce more dark green foods into your diet to get your chlorophyll. How about salads? Well, sure. But don’t make the common mistake of fooling yourself into thinking a packaged salad of iceberg lettuce with a couple of wedges of tomato covered with salad dressing is going to do the trick. Dark leafy greens such as kale, arugula, Swiss chard, spinach, collard greens and the like contain the most chloroyphyll and nutrients. You can eat greens just as they are ore gently steamed or sauteed in coconut oil.

Warning: Don’t use bottled salad dressings! Even the supposed healthy ones are full of unhealthy junk. A simple healthy salad dressing is extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice, or apple cider vinegar, sea salt and cracked pepper or cayenne. If you like a green salad dressing, just add raw spinach and parsley to the above basic dressing and put in a blender for a few seconds. This tastes amazing and is brilliant as a sauce over other cooked foods or as a dip!

It is possible to go overboard with consuming only raw greens. In a raw state, these dark leafy greens can have a mildly suppressing effect on the thyroid, which controls our metabolism. A weak thyroid seems to be a common theme in our culture (although the main culprit is fried food). Then again, some people have an overactive thyroid, so foods that mildly suppress the thyroid’s metabolic function aren’t necessarily all bad. It’s a balance. So it’s good from time to time to cook them. Slightly steamed greens are great, too, and are packed with enzymes and antioxidants as long as the bright green color is still maintained. Greens that are over cooked still provide some minerals, but keep in mind the chlorophyll becomes compromised. In fact, when cooked, your body is actually better able to absorb the minerals in dark leafy greens.

As for how much green foods to have in your daily diet, definitely more than just a small handful of greens on your sandwich. What I feel is a simple and reliable gauge is ‘the massive handful’. This is something with which your instinctive wisdom can play an outstanding role. There is an ancient memory of green foods in our genes since these foods have been in the human diet for tens of thousands of years. So your body knows. Trust your instincts.

Algae
Even among the healthiest green foods, there’s one group worthy of extra mention. Based on my nutrition research and experience, I rank algae at the top of the ladder of the healthiest foods that have the greatest impact.

Algae were the very first life on earth—beginning three and a half billion years ago. Essentially, algae are the ancient foundation of our food chain. It’s fascinating that now we are turning back to the very first food on earth for our nutritional support.

There are thousands of different algae, most of which can’t be consumed. However, edible varieties of algae have been in the human diet as far back as recorded history will take us—and all over the world—except for the last few hundred years in the Western world. Only recently have we begun hearing a lot more about the nutritive attributes of algae. Why this recent interest? Because algae have the highest concentration of chlorophyll of any food you can name. This is what makes algae so green!

It’s also worth mentioning that algae produce over sixty percent of the oxygen in our atmosphere and are the most powerful photo-synthesizers on our planet, capitalizing directly on the energy of the sun more than any other food. Sun plus water and minerals miraculously creates algae—then poof!—oxygen, which is among the more important elements of life, wouldn’t you say? This magical process happens in the body as well. Algae oxygenate the blood which naturally has a tremendous impact on our energy and overall health, especially in conjunction with the chlorophyll.

The Holy Trio: Klamath algae, Spirulina, and Chlorella
Among the thousands of different types of algae, it’s Klamath algae, Spirulina, and Chlorella that have the most remarkable health forming qualities. Numerous blind studies have proven the significant nutritive and restorative value of these algae. Here is a brief summary of what makes each of these three algae truly worthy of our attention.

Klamath Algae is recognized for its extraordinary support of the nervous system. Klamath Algae metabolizes nitrogen in the body which stimulates the production of more neurotransmitters in the brain. Neurotransmitters are the link, which carry messages from the brain to the body and then from the body back to the brain. The nervous system and brain communicate with everything in the body every second of every day, which defines the value of Klamath algae. In addition, anecdotal reports consistently attribute Klamath algae consumption to increase in mental alertness, short and long term memory retention, and enhanced mood. What’s not to like about that?

Spirulina is among the few richest sources of beta-carotene, which is known to be the most important anti-cancer antioxidant. An antioxidant is a substance that inhibits the oxidation (breaking down) of molecules, essentially protecting the body from wear and tear by free radicals. It’s the wear and tear in the body caused by free radicals that sets off a whole host of health problems, the inevitable one being aging. Another role of beta-carotene is to reverse inflammation. Natural anti-inflammatories are a vital part of disease prevention very simply because strong circulation throughout the body is how organs are nourished and detoxed. Spirulina is also notably high in iron, calcium, zinc, potassium, magnesium, selenium, and phosphorus, all of which play a tremendous role in our overall health and longevity.

Order NOW

Chlorella truly shines in it’s ability to enhance detoxification. Of all algae, Chlorella is at the very top of the totem pole in terms of chlorophyll content. Along with detoxification, the high chlorophyll content supports oxygenation of our blood and consequent energy production in all cells (O2 equals life-force). So, naturally, Chlorella enhances physical stamina and energy. Studies have also proven Chlorella reduces blood pressure and lowers cholesterol. Chlorella has even been shown to help increase the intestinal bacteria that are the very foundation of healthy digestion. Interestingly, the causes behind these benefits of Chlorella have not yet been identified, and there are more benefits still being discovered today. Oh, the mysteries of nature!

I truly feel algae can play a significant role in our diet, and I’m confident the world will better understand why these foods are so important in the near future. Bottom line—gram for gram, algae have concentrations of nutrients unmatched by anything else in nature. Naturally, all of the reasons above are part of why I am so partial to the Infinity formulas, of which algae are a big part. Truly. I believe algae are literally the antidote for us overfed, yet undernourished, modern humans. It is worth noting that today, even plant foods that are certified organic do not have the same nutrient content they did just a few decades ago because of the soil depletion from mass agriculture. However, this is not the case for algae! It is the same extraordinary nutrition that it was three and a half billion years ago. I feel that before long, algae will be a much more understood and used food source on a global scale.

How to introduce algae into your diet? Start by adding it to your smoothies. Already, smoothies should play a key role in your diet if they’re made with genuinely healthy ingredients. Introducing greens into your diet that are high in chlorophyll – whether kale, spinach, or algae – is about much more than just weight loss. You know, it’s interesting how our modern diets focus so heavily on getting the “right” calories and nutrients. But think about it: getting the calories and nutrients in is only half the picture. The other half is getting the toxic funk out!

Removing the wear and tear from your internal organs makes it well worth the small effort of adding more chlorophyll-rich green foods to your diet. At the end of it all, we are honing a diet to enable our bodies to rejuvenate faster than they break down. That’s the ultimate key for longevity, life-force, and protection from disease. You in?

How To Heal From Cancer

Lynn keeps her immune system strong holistically, body-mind-heart-soul.

Lynn keeps her immune system strong holistically, body-mind-heart-soul.

Many people who get cancer describe their self as always doing more for others than for themselves, putting their self last, and everyone else’s needs ahead of their own. These people are accustomed to doing it all alone without asking for help and covering up or repressing past hurts and disappointments.

Lyn is a smart, dynamic woman, a family nurse practitioner for over 20 years and married to an emergency medicine physician. Lyn stopped working in 1990’s to care for her son who regressed developmentally at the age of two and was subsequently diagnosed with autism. As a take charge woman, Lyn started two non-profits to help educate and provide resources to parents of Autistic children, including the National Autism Association and SAFE MINDS, Sensible Action for Ending Mercury-Induced Neurological Disorders.

With three young children and work, stress was an everyday condition in Lyn’s life for two decades. A few years ago Lyn’s body started showing signs of chronic stress through a weakened immune system, weight loss, digestive issues, and fatigue. Unfortunately, Lyn’s ill heath was brushed aside by her doctors for over 2 years until a MRI scan revealed an enlarged lymph node and stage III cancer.

Lyn turned her focus away from autism and began to read everything she could get her hands on about cancer. During her research she realized how important stress reduction and finding a positive outlook was for her recovery and for maintaining a strong immune system. She booked her 5-day Concierge Life In Balance Wellness Retreat with spiritual therapist Dianne Porchia.

Porchia taught her how to use the principles and practice of mind-body medicine connected to a spiritual perspective that acknowledged her as a Divine Being having her own unique human experience on earth.

During Lyn’s wellness retreat Porchia guided Lyn through powerful transformational process work which included Inner Child Healing work, Sacred Anger work, Somatic Dialogue, Compassionate Self-Forgiveness and Neuro-Linguistic Programming. She learned effective stress reduction techniques, combined with daily hikes, Qi Gong self-healing exercises and Vipassana meditation and mindfulness practices.
Special menu retreat meals were all organic and made with Porchia’s secret ingredient, Love.

Lyn’s powerful take home affirmation was, “I forgive myself for judging myself as unable to recover from cancer due to Lynch syndrome and in my new awareness I know my body has miraculous abilities to heal when I support it holistically physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.”

Lyn’s most recent scans show her cancerous lymph node metastatic tumor has completely disappeared. She continues to use visualization techniques and Qi Gong Self-healing exercises applied to the injured part of her body.

Lyn has resumed her passion as a high profile advocate for Autism while being mindful of more Self-nurturing choices and boundaries to keep her mind-body-soul and immune system functioning at its best.

If you are facing the challenges of cancer, know that supporting your immune system holistically is critical to your recovery. Dianne Porchia offers private and personalized wellness retreat programs in Topanga, California. She teaches effective stress reduction techniques and facilitates deep inner healing mentally, emotionally and spiritually utilizing the principles and practice of mind-body medicine.

Porchia is also available to provide out-call services and concierge Life In Balance travel retreats internationally.
