“We must embrace pain and burn it as fuel for our journey.” Kenji Miyazawa
Cancer. It’s a hot-button word that can evoke deep emotions—fear, anger, sadness, gratitude, and even joyful triumph. As do many of you, I have friends and loved ones who have fought the disease. Alas, some have succumbed, but others have survived and been restored to good health.
Cancer refers to any one of many diseases characterized by the development of abnormal cells that divide uncontrollably, and have the ability to infiltrate and destroy normal body tissue. Cancer is often able to spread throughout the body, as well. It’s the second leading cause of death in the United States.
Some general signs and symptoms associated with, but not specific to cancer include:
- Lump or thickening that can be felt under the skin
- Weight changes, including unintended loss or gain
- Skin changes, such as yellowing, darkening, redness, sores that don’t heal, or changes to existing moles
- Changes in bowel or bladder habits
- Persistent cough or trouble breathing
- Difficulty swallowing
- Unexplained bleeding or bruising
Tumors, also known as neoplasms, are abnormal masses of tissue which may be solid or fluid-filled. A tumor does not automatically mean cancer —tumors can be benign (not cancerous), pre-malignant (pre-cancerous), or malignant (cancerous).
There are many different types of tumors and a variety of names for them – their names usually reflect their shape and the kind of tissue they appear in. Put simply, a tumor is a kind of lump or swelling that does not necessarily pose a health threat.
Cancer takes many forms and can be a frightening diagnosis. But survival rates are improving for many types of cancer, thanks to improvements in cancer screening and treatment.
Bio-Touch, used in conjunction with standard medical care such as chemotherapy and radiation, can produce very beneficial results. Reduction of stress is one of those benefits, as well as a lessening of side effects from chemo and radiation. Bio-Touch has even been known to help in the shrinking of tumors.
What’s more, preliminary research has shown that the use of Bio-Touch raises levels of Interleukin-12 (IL-12) (see Research Articles on the Bio-Touch website justtouch.com). There has been interest in the medical community to testing IL-12 as a possible anti-cancer agent because of its ability to induce immune responses, and its anti-angiogenic (inhibits growth of new blood vessels) activities.
Bio-Touch can be safely included as part of any protocol for cancer because it’s non-invasive and free of negative side effects! It’s the perfect complementary therapy to mainstream medical treatment. And it’s easy for everyone to learn.
That’s why the Bio-Touch organization is offering a workshop on cancer and tumors at the Center in Tucson on Thursday Sept. 28th from 6-8PM. Workshop attendees will learn the Bio-Touch points needed to address the symptoms and side effects of cancer and tumors.
So if you’re in the Tucson area, bring your friends and family to the Center at 5634 E. Pima St. You’ll learn how fun it is to share Bio-Touch, and how good it is to be able to help each other feel better! For more information on how learn Bio-Touch go to Classes
