Cancer incidence. One in three people in Ireland will develop cancer during their lifetime. In Ireland an average of 30,000 new cases of cancer are diagnosed each year. The number is expected to rise to over 40,000 per year by 2020. The five most common cancers in Ireland are Non melanoma skin cancer (the most common and treatable form of skin cancer), prostate cancer, breast cancer, bowel cancer and lung cancer. Up to 50% of all cancers are preventable, 30% are preventable through lifestyle changes alone. These Statistics are taken from cancer.ie
Cancer is formed from a stem cell where the Dna of the stem cell has been damaged through epigenitics, Diet, Lifestyle, stress or a combination of all. This damaged stem cell becomes immortal and starts to produce cells at a rapid rate, when the immune system is already compromised due to diet, lifestyle, infections, stress etc it does not detect the rapid growth of theses daughter cells produced by the stem cell, over time these cells produced at a rapid rate form a tumor . Conventional treatments aim to shrink the tumor , sometimes with success but these treatments never address the root problem of the stem cell and also attack surrounding healthy cells, further compromise the immune system and lymphatic system whilst feeding the body with a poisonous carcinogenic such as chemotherapy.
Cancel cells are hypoxic and thrive in an anaerobic (without oxygen) unlike healthy cells which need oxygen supply, this means that cancer cells change their metabolism through a process called engiogenis and form their own blood vessels to supply the tumor with nutrients to survive. Cancer cells also thrive in acidic environment and feeds on sugar. For one who has developed a tumor means that the body has alreday been sick and the cancer is a result not the other way around where the cancer makes the body sick. Everybody has damaged stem cells and cancerous cells every day but they are detected and taken care of by our immune system.
"A carcinogen is any substance, radionuclide, or radiation that is an agent directly involved in causing cancer. This may be due to the ability to damage the genome or to the disruption of cellular metabolic processes."
At Life Change Health Institute we adhere to the principles of Functional Health. Functional Health is a consilient view on healing. We view each person as a holistic human being in all their wonder and complexity. As we as humans have bodies, we look at an individual through the lens of chemistry, anatomy and nutrition, as we are living beings we look through the lens of biology, relationships and neurobiology, as we have a mind we look through the lens of psychology, as we function in groups we look through the lens of sociology, group dynamics and group psychology, as we have culture we look through the lens of anthropology. We take this view of humanity and challenges to humanity such as stress, disease and illness in all of the work we do at Life Change Health Institute. We do not believe that there is any one cause or any one solution or cure to any challenge we face.
We have devised a world unique 5 Step Holistic Approach to Optimum Health which can be used to reverse disease and achieve radiant health, our approach is designed to address the root causes of disease rather than simply addressing symptomology.
