Could Mammograms Cause Breast Cancer?

by Leisa on November 24, 2008

I am sure that in some circumstances they could. I’ve read plenty of research over the years about the danger of mammograms.  They give the sensitive breast tissue quite a large dose of radiation while causing trauma to the delicate tissue.  There are also numerous cases of false positives that cause a lot of stress

by Leisa on October 10, 2008

Wow, another busy couple of weeks that saw me heading to Melbourne to do some lectures for ARL Pathology – the company that I use for saliva and stool testing analysis – and last weekend I spent two full days being introduced to German New Medicine. I have had an interest in German New Medicine for a while

Cell Phone Dangers

by Leisa on August 27, 2008

I personally haven’t done a great deal of research on the dangers of mobile phones, but I am quite aware that there are potential problems, so I try not to use mine unless I have to. On Dr. Mercola’s site, he had a good article on those dangers, and a video from an Australian

Was This Surgery Really Necessary?

by Leisa on August 21, 2008

I thought it was incredibly sad when I read that Christina Applegate had undergone a double mastectomy for breast cancer.  I thought the days of this barbaric treatment were over – seeing as studies have shown that it is no more effective than a simple lumpectomy anyway – if you choose to go the surgery path

The Brilliant Blueberry

by Leisa on April 22, 2008

Blueberries are one fruit that can often be found in my fridge whenever they are in season – they are tiny little round balls of goodness and like all berries, are very high in antioxidants.  My almost-4-year-old nephew Jack is also a big fan, and can sit down to a tub at a time of

A Deeply Inspiring Near-Death Story

by Leisa on April 6, 2008

I have a fascination in all things unexplainable and this story certainly fits into that category.  I think the essence of this story is what is important, not the actual facts surrounding it.  Messages of love, tolerance and acceptance never get old with me… Mellen-Thomas Benedict is an artist who survived a near-death experience (NDE) in

Breast Cancer and Soy

by Leisa on March 27, 2008

Many of my readers are probably familiar with Elaine Hollingsworth’s research on the dangers of soy in her book “Take Control of Your Health and Escape the Sickness Industry”.  Recently some forward thinking countries introduced warnings labels for soy products, but unfortunately Australia wasn’t one of them. The following article by David Gutierrez was featured

The Vitamin D Miracle: Is It For Real?

by Leisa on March 9, 2008

I’ve written before about the importance of Vitamin D (Blog post: Breast Cancer Prevention) in cancer prevention, and there has just been a great article published that examines whether the facts around Vitamin D stand up to the hype: The Vitamin D Miracle: Is It For Real? There are so many dangers of buying into the “slip,

The Perilous Pill

by Leisa on February 26, 2008

In the February issue of my newsletter, (subscribe to read it in the top right hand corner of this blog), I talk about Oestrogen dominance and the dangers of synthetic hormones.  We have heard a lot about the risks of synthetic HRT, but we hear next to nothing about the dangers of the Oral Contraceptive Pill.

Inspiring Story

by Leisa on January 12, 2008

I received an e-mail before Christmas from an author that has a site called Cancer Defeated, telling the story of what one family did to help their little boy survive cancer. I thought it was an excellent overview of what can be achieved with natural medicine, and how it can work alongside allopathic medicine when
