This page is not really Bulldog related but still worthwhile your time especially if you or a loved one is struggling with Cancer or any other kind of illness. In my free time I like to read up on Natural Therapy, new treatments and the causes of different diseases. Since it's so common these days am sure you know one or two people that have Cancer and am sure you wish to be of more help. Maybe you can Bookmark this page since I will keep working on it and add more valuable information from time to time. I do not just care about all kinds of animals but about people as well. Loving God and caring about people goes hand in hand. Treat others the same way you would want to be treated. If this page can be of some assistance for just a few people to get better healthwise it was worth my time.
We all have busy lives and when it comes to our health, many just hope for the best and that there is not much we can do about it anyways when it comes to Cancer. Usually it will be addressed only when we already have it.
Something we don't really want to think about since it's scary. No question about it, it has turned into an epidemic, it's striking more and more Americans every year even though billions of dollars have been spent in research for several decades.
Cancer forms when an abnormal group of cells fail to complete their normal life cycle and die, a process calle apoptosis. Instead, the cells undergo unregulated growth and multplication. As they grow and multiply, the cells form a tumor, parts of which can break off and spread throughout the body (mestasize) from cell to cell, through the bloodstream, or via the lymph nodes.
Substances that can disrupt the normal DNA of a cell and increase the risk of cancers are tobacco smoke, medical radiation, environmenal toxicities, obesity, synthetic hormones, viruses, bacteria, parasites and nutritional deficiencies.
Chemotherapy can damage healthy cells by causing them to secrete a protein that sustains tumor growth and resistance to treatment. This explains why chemotherapy may be effective initially but then the cancer returns often with a more rapid growth rate and more resistance to chemotherapy.
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer, or better even before you are diagnosed with any illness my advice from me to you is to consult a holistic practitioner. He or she can be of immense help when it comes to getting to the root of whatever plagues you instead of just prescribing a medication that may come with a long list of potential side effects which may cause other issues down the road. A holistic practitioner can assist you in changing your lifestyle, help you with detoxification, changes in your diet, increase your immune system and help get rid of the cause for cancer. We live in a toxic environment, our immune system is often times on overdrive and eventually will give up.
But remember this... only your immune system can cure your body of cancer!
It would take too much of my time going into detail but I will write up a list, each topic written in a few short sentences, some of the most important things to look out for, to aid your body and to give your immune system a better chance in doing it's job.
You are what you eat. If you eat food that contains toxic chemicals and hormones, what do you expect?
We use way too many pesticides on our crops and pesticides are known carcinogens.
One of the worst things you can do to your body. Researchers have found that the ingestion of refined sugar results in reduced white blood cell activity. The white blood cells are the immune system's first line of defense against foreign invaders and aberrant cells.
Many people snack on sweets several times per day, which can cause a near continous suppression of the immune system!
Maybe below link can help you a little with the sugar cravings
Supplement your immune system
Fact is that the nutritional content of our food has declined for a number of reasons, which include the overuse of pesticides and fertilizers, declining mineral levels in our soil due to poor farming techniques etc. We can't expect to stay healthy when there is a deficiency of essential nutrients. A holistic practitioner can order the appropriate blood, hair and urine tests to determine your vitamin and mineral status. Conventionally trained doctors do not study this in medical school and generally have little interest in these tests.
But beware when it comes to supplements, many are made with synthetic substances. Compared to the natural products, synthetic vitamins and nutrients provide a suboptimal response, and can even be dangerous! The problem with synthetic substances is that they are foreign to our bodies. We don't have receptors to bind these products, nor do we have proper detoxification pathways to remove them.
Taking nutritional supplements can result in great health benefits, but taking supplements with synthentic substances can be counterproductive
If you are not sure where you can buy top quality supplements I advise you to shop at the Health Ranger Store. I love to shop there and I know I can trust those products.

GMO's (Genetically Modified Food)
This goes without saying but there are actually still people out there who actually never even heard about GMO's, which is sad.
Out of the NON GMO Project page:
"Genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are living organisms whose genetic material has been artificially manipulated in a laboratory through genetic engineering. This relatively new science creates unstable combinations of plant, animal, bacteria and viral genes that do not occur in nature or through traditional crossbreeding methods.
"Sixty-four countries around the world, including Australia, Japan, and all of the countries in the European Union, require genetically modified foods to be labeled. While a 2015 ABC News survey found that 93% of Americans believe genetically modified foods should be labelled, GMOs are not required to be labelled in the U.S. and Canada. In the absence of mandatory labeling, the Non-GMO Project was created to give consumers the informed choice they deserve.
What are the impacts of GMOs on the environment?
More than 80% of all genetically modified crops grown worldwide have been engineered for herbicide tolerance. As a result, the use of toxic herbicides, such as Roundup®, has increased fifteenfold since GMOs were first introduced. In March 2015, the World Health Organization determined that the herbicide glyphosate (the key ingredient in Roundup®) is “probably carcinogenic to humans.”
There haven't been any longterm studies to prove it's safety and independent short term studies on rats and pigs show that GMO's are anything but safe to eat. And I don't really need any studies to understand how very damaging this is to our health.
Since it's sadly not banned in the US please try to always purchase products that have the "Non GMO project label" on it!!
All you can do is try to avoid anything that's made out of Corn, Soy, Canola and Sugar beets among other things because 90% of it is GMO these days.
Don't buy anything that has high fructose corn syrup in it either. Also lately called fructose or fructose syrup in order to fool the consumer, since fructose makes up the sugar content in fresh fruit. So it sounds much healthier than High Fructose Corn Syrup. This questionable sweetener, which is much cheaper than regular sugar and extends the shelf life of processed products, has been linked to many health problems such as heart disease, obesity, dementia, diabetes, cancer and liver failure. That box of General Mills Vanilla Chex cereal you're buying may say "no high fructose corn syrup" on the front of the box, but it will be hidden in the ingredients list under the name "fructose", which is the most concentrated form of High Fructose Corn Syrup. So be careful.
If your wondering what are the reasons why there is such a huge increase in cancer, in my eyes GMO's are one of the main reasons, no doubt about it. It simply goes against nature. It has a majorly negative impact on our health as well as our environment.
Don't feed your dogs and cats that has Corn and Soy in it.

Please visit also the GMO FAQ page with lots of valuable, important information.
In May of 2009, The American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) sent out a press release that called for an immediate moratorium on GM foods. They asked physicians to educate their patients and provide educational material about the health risks associated with GM foods. They proposed that physicians consider the role of GM foods in their patients disease processes.
I would say even worse than white sugar are Artificial Sweeteners like Aspartame, Nutrasweet, Amino Sweet, Nutra Taste, Neotame, Spoonful etc. I avoid Artificial Sweeteners like the plague. One 12 ounce "diet" soda contains a whopping 180 mg of Aspartame
A one litter of Aspartame sweetened "Diet" Beverage can generate about 56 mg of methanol - nearly 8 times more than the EPA limit. Methanol is poisonous to the body and is especially toxic to the nervous tissue!!
There are no studies that show artificial sweeteners prevent obesity. Actually greater consumption of Artificial Sweeteners is associated with a higher prevelance of obesity. It's very difficult for an obese person to lose weight if they ingest artificial sweetener daily.
Remember, we have to do our own research when it comes to shopping for groceries. Just because it's being sold in a grocery store doesn't mean it's not damaging to your health. In a perfect world this would be the case but he reality looks different. It's about selling a product, the sweeter the better, because we all have a sweet tooth, plus loaded with synthetic, artificial ingredients, because it's cheaper to produce it in this manner..... just as long as it sells. And remember, always go for products with the Non GMO project label on it.
Did you know that Amalgan fillings for your teeth contain 50 percent mercury by weight? I think that's just insane. Did you know that mercury is the third most toxic substance known to mankind?? And it's in our mouths of all places, I just can't wrap my head around it. Well, it's not in my mouth anymore but unfortunately before I learned about it I had it as well for many years. Approximately 100 million amalgan fillings are placed in patients' mouths each year by over 175,000 dentists. In fact, by law dentists cannot flush an amalgan filling down the drain for fear that the mercury will pollute the environment! Studies have clearly shown that the mercury in amalgan fillings can seep out of the tooth and be absorbed in the body.
The process of chewing warm food or drinking hot liquid can cause an amalgan filling to release mercury vapor which is easily absorbed through breathing and deposited throughout the body, including the brain, kidney, liver and heart. One recent study found that people with amalgan fillings have 2.3 higher blood mercury levels than those without amalgans. Make sure you find a dentist who is properly trained in the safe handling and removal of your old amalgan fillings and have it replaced with a less toxic filling free of mercury. If a dentist defends mercury fillings it's time to find a new one!
I'm in my 40's now and my whole life I was fortunate enough to never have had migraines or headaches until spring of 2015. I suffered from some trauma the year before and I assume that may have been the cause for my migraines. I would get that awful throbbing pain on just one side of my head, feel nauceous and couldn't eat, just lay in a dark room for some hours. I am sensitive to medication, they often contain heavy metal toxins, artificial sweeteners and toxic industrial-based food dyes.
Therefore I just tried to tough it out, I would get it maybe every three weeks. This went on for a few months and I knew I had to do something about it since there was no way I would be able to take care of a litter of newborn Bulldog puppies and dealing with a migraine attack at the same time. When taking care of a litter of Bulldog puppies one has to be in pretty good physical shape to deal with all the sleep deprivation for once. A bulldog mom can't be left alone with her litter at all times.
They are not the most athletic dogs and can be a bit clumsy at times, they may roll over them or step on them accidentally. So you have to be up every two hours around the clock for weeks to come to keep an eye on the mom and babies while they nurse. Once they are done nursing you have to massage them to do their business until they are about 4 weeks of age and they are kept seperated in a box that has the appropriate temperature. The mom has to be fed as well after every feeding of the pups and then walked outside to do her business, around the clock in order to keep her weight. I also clean the mom's teats every single time with sterilized wet wash clothes before she nurses her pups. After some weeks of doing this it takes it's toll on you unless two people work around the clock in shifts so that the other one can go to sleep.
This is how every Bulldog breeder raises the pups, this is one of the reasons why Bulldog puppies are more expensive than other breeds where the pups can stay with the mom around the clock. I do this by myself, it's a very delicate business and I just wouldn't feel comfortable letting someone handle the pups who hasn't had years of experience in raising Bulldog puppies. Like I said there was no way I would have been able to raise a litter and deal with migraine at the same time which would've gotten way more intense with all that sleep deprivation and stress.
So I went through one of my books (called Natural Relief from Headaches, Insomnia and Stress) and it talked about a natural supplement called "Feverfew". Never heard about it before. I read that Follow up studies to clinical results showed that Feverfew works in the treatment and prevention of migraine headaches by inhibiting the release of blood vessel-dilating substances from platelets, inhibiting the production of inflammatory substances and reestablishing proper blood vessel tone.
Overmore it's extremely well tolerated and no serious side effects have been reported. It takes about two or three weeks for it to work and I can assure you from own experience it absolutely works!! You can buy it at Amazon, buy the bottle with the purple cap, it contains 0.7% Parthenolide, you can buy a bottle with 60 capsules for only $8. Don't take it if you are pregnant or breast feeding.
But don't take my word for it's effectiveness, before ordering it at Amazon scroll down to the bottom of their page and there are over 50 reviews from people who bought it and had the same results as I did. You do not have to get prescription medication for your migraines!
I am not getting anything out of doing advertising for those supplements, am just thrilled that I was able to find those products that really help without causing any side effects and I would be thrilled knowing that if you suffer from headaches and migraines would try the same approach. I started taking it about 2 weeks before I had another litter and kept taking maybe a capsule a day and my tension headache went away and guess what...I stopped taking it daily and only when I had another attack and for about a year now I have had no more migraine attacks either!
Did you know that Microwave Ovens don't just destroy the nutritional value of the food, but the “nuker” is negatively impacting your heart as well?
Chronic Sinus Infections
Fortunately I never had to deal with this issue but came across plenty of people over the years who were plagued by it. It's very common and characterized by the inflammation and swelling in the cavaties around the nasal passages. So if I were to ever start displaying symptoms of a sinus infection I could either go to the doctor and take the nasal spray or antibiotics that I get prescribed for it, or.... could try to figure out what could be the trigger for it and what would be the alternative approach to solving this problem in order for it to not reoccur again..and again. Some people are suffering for years before actually trying a different approach.
I know there are many causes for this problem but by far the most causes for it are the overuse of antibiotics and food allergies! I read an article by someone who actually tested thousands of patients over the years who had chronic sinus problems, for sensitivity to the cow's milk protein casein (IgG) and he actually found that more than 80 percent exhibited high levels of antibodies to casein. If you are producing antibodies it means that your body is fighting back against a certain substance.
The reason for this kind of allergic reaction could be the pasteurization and homogenization of milk in order to sterilize it. But that process also changes the structure of proteins. It makes the human body react to it as a foreign substance and produces antibodies against it.
So what should you do next? If you are tired of constantly having to deal with this problem consult a Holistic Practitioner. Have yourself tested for sensitivity to the cow's milk protein casein (IgG). If you happen to have high levels of antibodies to casein stop consuming dairy.
No cow's milk, or ice cream, yogurt, cheese, sour cream etc.
It will take about two months for the body to clear the antibodies.
Start a daily wash program with a "rhino horn", a plastic device with which you pour liquid into your nasal cavaties to flush them out. Use purified water with some sea salt and most importantly...don't forget to add one drop of Iodine solution to the rhino horn solution every time since Iodine has antibacterial, antiyeast, antiviral and antiparasitc properties. Pathogenic organisms don't show any resistance to Iodine!! Adding Iodine to the mixture will make a big difference since the sinuses concentrate Iodine which has a strong healing effect on them.
Also take a probiotic if you have taken antibiotics since it can cause a bacterial imbalance in your body which can lead to yeast overgrowth.
