Bottom line: Take out the stress from your life, feed yourself well, give and take love as abundantly as you possibly can, and surround yourself with good energy.

1. Activate your cells with ONDAMED

This therapy works in conjunction with all the points mentioned here, yet with focused stimulation on a cellular level. This safe and non-invasive therapeutic approach provides relief of stress and tension impacting cardiac health.

2. Love the work you do.

Enjoy your work as if it was your hobby or your calling. If you don’t, find a career that will give you this fulfillment.

3.Observe & choose.

Surround yourself with people and environments that make you feel good, if not great.

4.Laughter.

Good hearty laughter allows for stress relief to your heart by triggering the release of endorphins. Laughter improves the function of blood vessels and increases blood flow, which can help protect you against a heart attack and other cardiovascular problems.

5.Eat well.

If you can’t get good food, then don’t eat. It’s that simple. Eating well means that you shop and cook high quality food, which is a balance of vegetables, fruit,

meat, poultry, fish, eggs, grains, nuts, seeds, and more. Eat what the soil in your area is providing, honoring every season’s availability.

6.Salt.

Add Himalayan salt or sea salt to your daily diet for improved cellular function impacting vascular health, metabolism, and electrolyte household.

7.Fat.

Make sure you get plenty of good fats into your body including a properly balanced ratio of Omega 3 and Omega 6 (1:2) and coconut oil.

8.Dietary Supplements

Should include magnesium, CoQ10, phosphorus, vitamins D3 and C.

9.Breathe.

Your breathing rate is directly related to your heart rate. Deep breathing to decrease heart rate is a technique used in many relaxation and stress-relief programs.

10. Water.

Drink lots of good quality water (without chlorine or fluorides) to help your body detoxify and take the stress off your heart. Traditional Chinese Medicine views the heart as your heating system that relays on the kidneys for providing the cooling while cleansing the blood. If you don’t drink enough, your kidneys cannot effectively detoxify you, which may cause your heart too much heat and stress.

11.Move.

Walk at least three times per week for 15 minutes, ideally in nature. Try to do a 10 minute cardio exercise twice per week to speed up your heart rate. Riding a bike, using a home exerciser or jumping on a trampoline are very effective ways to accomplish this goal.

12. More rest or sleep.

Go to bed early to get plenty of rest. It is during sleep that our body performs most regenerative processes.

13. Make love.

Real important for women and men. During kissing, hugging, and love making a powerful hormone called Oxytocin is being stimulated. Oxytocin also acts as a neurotransmitter in the brain. The more oxytocin your pituitary gland produces, the better you are able to cope with stress while reducing inflammation and cell deaths such as in an injured heart.

14. Healthy mouth.

Ideally, you find yourself a biological dentist who works within an integrative or functional medical model meaning to apply the knowledge that everything in your body is connected. Every tooth connects to a specific meridian and an emotional connection impacting organ functions. Silent inflammation or infectious processes in your mouth may lead to thoracic dysfunctions such as endocarditis.

15. Reduce electro-smog

At night turn off your cell phones, computers and TV’s; don’t use your microwave; be mindful of power lines around your home. Remove your shoes and ground your body to the earth for a few minutes to bring the body in a natural electric balance.

Angelina’s Choice: a Science Based Decision or an Emotional Reaction?

Silvia Binder comments on Angelina Jolie’s decision

As the world turned their eyes to Angelina Jolie last month following her choice to have a preventative double mastectomy, many found her decision to be empowering. Although I can appreciate the act of a public figure attracting attention to medicine and promoting health awareness, I can’t help but question the decision she made.

While we know so much more today about genes through scientific developments over the last decade, we still know very little about DNA and its impact on our health.

As published in TIME magazine, in 2010, the article “Why your DNA isn’t your destiny” brought to the front epigenetics, and discussed how our environment and our choices can influence our genetic code — and our kids’ genetic code.

The articled notes: “When a methyl group attaches to a specific spot on a gene — a process called DNA methylation — it can change the gene’s expression, turning it off or on, dampening it or making it louder”. In the article they discuss an experiment that was done back in 2003 at Duke University by the oncologist Randy Jirtle and one of his postdoctoral students, Robert Waterland. According to the article, they conducted an experiment on mice with a uniquely regulated agouti gene — a gene that gives mice yellow coats and a propensity for obesity and diabetes when expressed continuously.

“Jirtle’s team fed one group of pregnant agouti mice a diet rich in B vitamins (folic acid and vitamin B12). Another group of genetically identical pregnant agouti mice got no such prenatal nutrition.

The B vitamins acted as methyl donors: they caused methyl groups to attach more frequently to the agouti gene in utero, thereby altering its expression. And so without altering the genomic structure of mouse DNA — simply by furnishing B vitamins — Jirtle and Waterland got agouti mothers to produce healthy brown pups that were of normal weight and not prone to diabetes”.

Scientists Bruce Lipton and Dawson Church among others also discuss this new science with plenty of peer reviewed references in their books “The Biology of Belief” and “The Genie in your Genes”.

With such good news, and the empowerment it gives us by revealing that we may have impact over our genes and ultimately, the way our DNA responds–why does the world seem to be more empowered by fear based news of “destruction”, as we see in the case of Angelina Jolie’s choice of having a voluntary double mastectomy?

Science aside, looking at the emotional and psychological condition of Jolie, I can’t help wonder if maybe Angelina’s unresolved emotional connection to this extreme decision of the double mastectomy may be about “forgiveness”. She may not have forgiven herself for not helping her mother survive the struggle with ovarian cancer and ultimately, she may not have forgiven her mother for having left her by no longer being alive. The decision is so extreme, that it seems to me that beyond science, this was an emotional, fear based decision. I believe that the type of medicine that predicts outcome of disease many years before its manifestation is a danger to society, as it is programming the person’s mind with fear, and creating a diagnosis induced shock potentially followed the manifestation of disease.

And to my last thought: if Brad Pitt was diagnosed with a gene suggesting testicular cancer, would he or his oncologists suggest removal of his testicles??
