The “C” word can create more fear than almost anything else in your life, and cancer is not going away. It is the number 2 disease killer in the USA and is expected to pass heart disease as the number 1 killer in just a few years.
The first step when discussing cancer is to consider the causes, so let’s start with our horrible American diet. Please tell me that you are aware of the tragedy of what we eat!
You may be consuming GMO (Genetically Modified Organism) foods, processed foods, refined sugar, which is the #1 food of choice for cancer cells, or coffee, which makes the body more acidic. Making your body acidic increases your risk of cancer, parasites, and osteoporosis.
The National Cancer Institute said in 1999 that cancer is a fruit and vegetable deficiency. Former Surgeon General C. Everett Koop said that 68% of ALL death in this country is due to nutrition-related diseases. Those are two pretty good indications that we should eat properly.
We should look carefully at environmental toxins, which are associated with 90-95% all of cancers according to some research, and how to safely remove them from our bodies.
It is also wise to look at a nutritional supplement like vitamin D, which has been shown to help treat 16 different forms of cancer. A recent study from 2016 found that vitamin D blood levels of 40 or more cut cancer risks by an amazing 67% in women!
To find out the latest information about cancer, I encourage you to attend our class on June 30th from 4:00 to 5:15 pm. Admission is $5 per person and each class is offered just once a year.

There is no doubt that we are all getting older and there is also no doubt that we all have health. The question to ask yourself is how you are aging and in which category is your health?
You see, we all have health-poor, average, passable, excellent, etc. As we age there is the expectation that we must put on weight, lose energy, get more aches and pains, and take more drugs, right?
Remember that even though we make up only 5% of the population of the world, we use 75% of all of the prescription drugs on the planet!! Also remember that we are ranked 53rd in the world in life expectancy. AWFUL!
See if this sounds familiar to you: you are taking a thyroid medication, you are on a statin drug for your cholesterol, you take a blood pressure med, you keep gaining weight, and if you’re a female, you might be taking a drug for your bone density because you had a bad DEXA scan.
There may be a better way to age beyond taking more and more drugs.
At our monthly classes, we continue to share the latest info on major health issues. This month’s class will help you understand DEXA scans, menopause, andropause, osteoporosis and osteopenia, hormone therapy, and much more!
If you can set aside just over an hour on the 26th of May from 4:00 to 5:15 PM, you will be able to hear the latest information on this important topic. $5.00 will get you a seat for the class, which will be given just once this year.
Call today at 445-5607 to reserve your seat, because the classes fill quickly. See you there!Read more
Emotional Stress and Your Health
For those of you who have always suspected that your thoughts can and do influence your overall health, there is some fairly new research that confirms just that. You were right all long!
The concept and the demonstration of how we can make a difference with our health is not new. In 1997, the Lancet Medical Journal said that only 25% of our health is a function of our genetics, and therefore 75% is determined by what we think and do, and the choices that we make.
In 2002, Science magazine reported that it may be as high as 80-90% of our health that is a function of what we think and do. That is very good news for those of us who want to be proactive in our health and not at the mercy of the choices that our parents and grandparents made.
As significant as those studies are, this next study is a game-changer. After 25 years of research, Dr. Carolyn Leaf reported recently that an amazing 87-95% of ALL HUMAN AILMENTS are due to our thoughts!!! You are in control, folks!
At our monthly class on April 28th from 4:00-5:30 PM, we will demonstrate how our thoughts and words influence our vitality by using muscle testing, questionnaires, and the well-known Bach Flower Remedies.
You will be shown some simple and very effective methods to reduce the impact of stress in your life.
Call Hancock Healthcare today at 445-5607 to sign up for this class, which will be given only once this year. It may be the best $5 you spend in 2016!Read more
At first glance you may be surprised and/or confused by the words “needle-free.” I understand the possible confusion, but the reality is that if you knew the correct points to treat, you could treat them with a ball point pen! Using needles is just one of many methods used to balance the body’s meridians.
Historically speaking, acupuncture has been around for about 5,000 years. Initially, the points were treated with sharp rocks and bones because they didn’t have needles, but they understood that by balancing the meridians, overall health could be greatly improved. In the 1960’s, a Korean researcher named Kim Bonghan discovered the tiny, threadlike, microscopic anatomical structures that are the meridians. At that point, we had “Western medicine proof” of their existence.
There is no fear in our clinic about our adjustments because they are gentle, yet very effective, so why strike fear into the hearts of those smart folks who understand the benefits of acupuncture by using needles? 65% of Americans are afraid of needles, so they either fearfully struggle their way through needle treatments or they lose out on the benefits by not getting any treatment at all! Not good! That is why we use needle-free laser treatments to balance the meridians.
We use a technologically advanced contemporary diagnostic method of analysis called Electro Meridian Imaging (EMI) that was developed in 1952 by Dr. Yoshio Nakatani of Japan.
Our painless and effective 15-20 minute treatment process includes a printout of your meridian graph, symptoms that you may be dealing with, and actual pictures of the points so that you can treat them at home!
Please call Hancock Healthcare at 445-5607 today to make an appointment for this valuable treatment process!Read more
DETOXIFICATION…THE PROBLEMS AND THE SOLUTIONS
It should come as no surprise to you that we have a problem with toxic exposure. There are north of 87,000 chemicals allowed in our environment by the government, and 4 billion pounds of toxins are dumped or pumped into the environment every year.
Dr. Mark Hyman’s research has shown that umbilical cord blood contains 287 toxins, and the blood in newborns contains 220 toxins, 180 of which are carcinogenic! Therefore we shouldn’t be surprised that childhood cancers are increasing, should we?
In fact, some research shows that 95% of ALL cancers are directly related to toxic exposure.
Some of these nasty boys are familiar to us all….like pesticides, fertilizers, hair spray, vehicle emissions, and paint fumes. Others may not be on your list of well-known culprits…like fabric softener sheets, cosmetics, detergents, shampoos, chem trails, and room deodorizers.
So what can we do about this serious problem?
It is essential to eliminate the source of the toxins in your home and in your diet. For example, diet sodas with aspartame are actually toxic to your brain and nerves, and GMO products scare the heck out of me! DUMP THEM!
In our clinic we utilize dietary suggestions and nutritional supplements to help rid your body of toxins in an effective and healthy fashion.
On only one day this year, February 25th from 4:00 to 5:30 PM, we will discuss all of the latest information on this critically important topic at our clinic at 805 Whipple Street. We will demonstrate how we test for problems that can affect your ability to detoxify, and answer your questions. Call ASAP at 445-5607 to reserve your seat!Read more
