Dr Vincent Li from The Angiogenesis Foundation gives a fascinating TED Talk

This is an excellent TED Talk (video below) by Dr Vincent Li from the Angiogenesis Foundation on how to start your own DIY Health Revolution – giving practical advice, backed up by scientific evidence.

It’s not the first time I have heard a doctor say that ‘what we provide is sick care, not health care’. In the video, Dr Vincent Li suggests that ‘health care’ is perhaps what people should be doing in between their doctor visits.

In the Western world, we have seen a huge increase in obesity, diabetes and cancer, to name a few. But how do people in other places like Okinawa or Sardinia live to be 100 years or more with low to no rates of say, cancer, Alzheimers or obesity among their population? The answer does not lie in the pharmaceuticals, or hospitals or even doctors.

The answer lies in what you can do yourself. DIY: Do It Yourself.

Dr Vincent Li explains what you can do to prevent disease and promote health, and it’s backed by scientific data – and the best news is: for most of us these things are relatively easy to do.

For instance, good quality sleep is really important. And it’s important to sleep enough, so seven hours minimum is a good start. And don’t read a tablet or digital device before bed because it suppresses the melatonin in the brain which then interferes with sleep patterns.

I have to add to that: keep your bedroom as free as possible from EMFs (Electromagnetic Frequencies). Switch off the wifi at night, turn your smart phone off and keep it far away from the bedroom. Same goes for digital alarm clocks and any other devices I haven’t even thought about.

Eat to Starve Cancer by Dr William Li

In this Ted Talk video, Dr William Li proposes a most interesting solution to cancer. Curing cancer at a late stage in the game, when it’s established and has spread to different parts of the body is difficult if not impossible. In this video, Dr Li talks about key foods that can help fight off cancer cells spreading in the body. You’ll never look at foods like an orange, or lentils or parsley in the same way again. Fascinating stuff.

Jin Shin Jyutsu®: A Great Support to Cancer Treatments

Very excited to find this nice video of the great work that Jin Shin Jyutsu practitioner Jennifer Bradley is doing at the University of Kentucky Markey Cancer Center in the USA. As the video shows, and in my own experience working with people living with cancer, Jin Shin Jyutsu sessions greatly support the whole being during conventional treatments such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy, and help alleviate common symptoms like nausea, fatigue and general malaise. It also gives a good explanation of how this Art works.

Cancer Fighting Foods

What do Squid, Garlic, Olive Oil, Cooked Tomatoes, Cooked Lentils and Citrus Juice have in common? Find out what Dr William Li from the Angiogenesis Foundation has to say. Martha Stewart talked to him on her programme – check out the video via the link in the image below:

A List of Anti Cancer Foods to Save Your Life

Below is a list compiled by Dr William Li of The Angiogenesis Foundation, of some of the foods and other dietary sources of naturally occurring Antiangiogenic (read: Anti-Cancer growing) substances. We all know that a balanced diet is fundamental to good health, but the key here is to ADD these foods to your diet – for more information see the video in the previous post. You can add Earl Grey Tea and Glucosamine to that list – there are others mentioned in the video by Dr William Li. (Slide courtesy of The Angiogenesis Foundation)

Jin Shin Jyutsu: How Long Does it Take to Heal?

Jin Shin Jyutsu is an innate wisdom that is within all of us. I say: ‘Your health, happiness and longevity lies in knowing where to put your hands on your body.’ The ancient Art of Jin Shin Jyutsu shows us how, and opens up the whole world of Getting to KNOW (Help) MYSELF. Therin lies the lifelong study of the ART.

After 10 years, I am more than ever in awe of the healing power of this Art. I have myself experienced rapid (I mean in seconds) relief from pain and discomfort, and have been empowered by the fact that I AM the one in charge of Helping MYSELF.
There are two types of conditions: Acute and Chronic. Acute conditions (seem to) flare up suddenly like for instance, appendicitis. One of my favourite stories happened to one of the Jin Shin Jyutsu instructors. He went to hospital with an acute pain in his right side – was told he had appendicitis and that he would have to be operated on. He decided to ‘wait a bit’, went home and held SEL 11 + 25 (to clear the energy down the front). Within 20 minutes, ‘something went pop’, the pain dissipated then stopped, and that was the end of that. I believe he still has his appendix! Of course, I don’t condone that just anyone do this. You’ve got to know what you’re doing.
Chronic conditions are more challenging in many respects because there are many more factors involved over a longer period of time. There could be genetic, emotional and physical issues present for instance, that would need to be worked on. I have heard stories of children born with Down’s Syndrome who, if worked on by their parents every day, will show no signs of DS by the time they are in their teens. Change the energy, change the physical.
And finally, I worked on someone living with cancer every week for years – her quality of life improved, and at the end when she left her body, she was at peace. Her healing took place in a different way.
So in answer to the question: How long does it take for Jin Shin Jyutsu to heal? I would then ask: ‘How long does it take to harmonise the breath?’

Experiencing the Art of Jin Shin Jyutsu

“My experience with Jin Shin Jyutsu or energy medicine, as I sometimes call it, is that I can be more in control of my mind, body and emotions. For example, I can quickly alleviate fatigue, get rid of a headache, stimulate my immune system immediately so I don’t get a cold, control my weight, even give myself a facelift! I have also worked with people who had many conditions – from anxiety to cancer, and have humbly marvelled at the results – it’s so simple and yet so powerful. All I ‘do’ is introduce the Awareness of this Art. It is not something one has to create or believe in – it’s already there to be used and enjoyed!” – Astrid Kauffmann (Jin Shin Jyutsu Practitioner and Self-help Teacher)
