Women Who Hate Their Vaginas

by Sarah Treleaven

Apparently, a lot of women with perfectly good vaginas have a big problem with them.

According to a recent study, as reported by Zosia Bielski in the Globe & Mail — ‘Women pursue labioplasty even when they’re ‘normal’ down there: study’ — women are increasingly looking to corrective vaginal surgery even when there’s nothing to correct.

The study involved 33 women who requested labial reduction surgery, and the majority requested the surgery for cosmetic reasons. Writes Bielski: “Asked why they had become dissatisfied with their genitals, the women spoke of an ‘increasing self-awareness of the genital area,’ comments from a partner, TV shows that mentioned the surgery and physical discomfort. 15 per cent of the women first became unhappy with their labia while not yet 10 years old; 30 per cent reported discontent between 11 and 15.”

Continues Bielski: “Dr. Tiefer said the push for smaller labia –- a.k.a. ‘designer vaginas’ –- appeared in the late 1990s. Between the prevalence of waxing and Internet pornography, ‘There’s a whole cascade of events and trends that have made the vulva more visible.’ She believes the rise in labioplasty is the latest turn in a ‘cultural disease of self-consciousness… The normal range [of labias] is very broad –- that’s the key point in this situation. Nature loves diversity. The attempt to create some ideal and then pass it off as normal is anti-normal.'”

Some women are always looking for new parts of their body to loathe for no good reason, so I guess this shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. Plus, wherever a woman has anxiety, there’s someone there to make some money off of it. But it’s a shame that many women can’t make peace with a body part that’s healthy and functional, instead carving themselves up into grid of self-improvement projects.

So what do you think? Would you ever have cosmetic surgery on your vagina?

Health Care Workers Now Choose Alternative Medicine

By Dr. Mercola
Alternative medicine is no longer so “alternative” for health care workers, the majority of whom use a variety of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) for themselves.

In fact, 76 percent of health care workers use CAM, compared to 63 percent of the general population, according to research in the journal

Health Services Research. Even more revealing, health care providers, including doctors and nurses, were more than twice as likely to have used practitioner-based CAM, and nearly three times as likely to use self-treatment with CAM, during the prior year than support workers.
It seems health care workers are poignantly aware of many of the pitfalls of modern medicine and as such are embracing more holistic modalities. As psychiatrist Joya Lynn-Schoen, M.D., who practices alternative medicine, told Health Behavior News Service, part of the Center for Advancing Health:
“As insiders, health care workers understand what’s missing in our medical system. They’re more educated than others about orthodox and alternative medicine … Mainstream medicine will say, ‘Here’s a pill’ or ‘Have an operation” or ‘There’s nothing wrong with you. You’re just tired.'”

With holistic therapies, attention is directed to finding the rootcause of disease so you can heal on a deep, instead of surface, level. In simpler terms, holistic medicine focuses on health, whereas conventional medicine focuses on disease.

Holistic Medicine Increasing in Popularity

The trend of CAM use among health care workers is mirrored by that of the general population. Increasing numbers of people are looking for treatments that fall outside of the realm of conventional medical care, often because conventional medicine has failed them or even made their conditions worse.

In 2007, more than 38 percent of U.S. adults used complementary and alternative medicine, along with 12 percent of children — a rate that’s been increasing since 2002. This amounts to 4 in 10 adults, and 1 in 9 children, embracing CAM. According to the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, while CAM is used by people of all backgrounds, use is greatest among women and those with higher levels of education and income

CAM practices are very diverse and include, but are not limited to:

Nutritional medicine Holistic Nutritionist
Naturopathy Chiropractic
Herbalism, homeopathy, and nutritional-based therapies Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and acupuncture
Ayurveda Meditation and hypnosis

Are You Fed Up with Prescription Drugs and Surgery?

Taking medications and having surgery is clearly not the route to optimal health that the modern medical system would have you believe it is. Dr. Null and colleagues published an oft-cited report in 2003 about the death toll caused by drugs and conventional medical treatments, which included the following statistics.

  • Adverse drug reactions — 106,000 deaths/year
  • Medical errors — 98,000 deaths/year
  • Unnecessary procedures — 37,136 deaths/year
  • Surgery — 32,000 deaths/year

Additionally, a June 2010 report in the Journal of General Internal Medicine, which analyzed 62 million death certificates from 1979 to 2006 (the most recent year available), found that almost a quarter-million of those deaths were coded as having occurred in a hospital setting due to medication errors.  In an AMA article discussing the study, one co-author was quoted as stating that “medication errors are the second-leading cause of accidental death, and the only kind of accidental death that is increasing over time.”

An estimated 450,000 preventable medication-related adverse events occur in the U.S. every year, and adverse drug reactions cause injuries or death in 1 of 5 hospital patients. The costs of adverse drug reactions to society are more than $136 billion annually — greater than the total cost of cardiovascular or diabetic care.

Further, an analysis in the New England Journal of Medicine in 2010 found that 18 percent of patients were harmed by medical care(some repeatedly) and over 63 percent of the injuries could have been prevented. In nearly 2.5 percent of these cases, the problems caused or contributed to a person’s death. In another 3 percent, patients suffered from permanent injury, while over 8 percent experienced life-threatening issues, such as severe bleeding during surgery.

In all there were over 25 injuries per 100 admissions! In other words you have a one in four chance of getting injured if you are admitted to the hospital, not very good odds by any stretch. So it is easy to understand why some people are abandoning conventional medicine like rats leaving a sinking ship! Alternative medicine typically offers a more positive treatment experience and typically produces better results, and Americans are also increasingly distrustful of prescription medicines, and rightfully so!

Holistic Medicine Helps You Take Control of Your Health

The more you take responsibility for your own health — in the form of nurturing your body to prevent disease — the less you need to rely on the “disease care” that passes for health care in the United States.

If you carefully follow some basic health principles — simple things like exercisingeating whole foodssleeping enoughgetting sun exposure, reducing stress in your life, and nurturing personal relationships — you will drastically reduce your need for conventional medical care, which in and of itself will reduce your chances of suffering ill side effects.

But in the event you do need medical care, seek a health care practitioner who will help you move toward complete wellness by helping you discover and understand the hidden causes of your health challenges … and create a customized and comprehensive — i.e. holistic— treatment plan for you. You and your family CAN take control of your health, and you can typically do so using lifestyle choices and other natural, holistic strategies.

The Reason Why Gastric Bypass Surgery Doesn’t Work

Why gastric bypass surgery doesn't work

by Lisa Tisdall

Gastric bypass surgeries are temporary physical fixes to a long term mental/emotional problem! If you think the surgery is a cure-all, think again. The crazy thing is some people are gaining more weight on purpose so they can qualify to even be considered for the surgery. How sick is that?

My aunt had gastric bypass surgery last year. She was so excited about the new body she was going to have after the surgery. She just couldn’t wait for her new life to begin. This was an answer to her prayers. So she thought!

Up until then, my aunt had not exercised a day in her life. She never followed a sensible eating plan, nor did she want to. By the looks of them, none of my family had ever sacrificed anything in the way of food. The doctors had filled her head with “results” that were only possible, not even probable. Her children were totally delusional about their mom’s weight and had danced around the issue so much that my aunt was in total denial. And guess what? True to form, she gained the weight back in eight months. Why?

The answer: you can’t build a house on a foundation made of sand. If you don’t deal with what is underneath the surface of your emotional behavior toward eating and exercise, you will go right back to the beginning, no matter what you take out or do to your body. Surgery or no surgery, there is no cure-all for being overweight. However, there is a solution — do you want to hear it? Here it is:

  1. Decide how you are motivated.
  2. Determine your underlying reasons for your eating and exercise behaviors or lack thereof.
  3. Develop the best support system to promote your own personal success.
  4. Deal with the emotions behind your eating patterns.
  5. Dedicate yourself to an exercise program.

Maybe the surgery works in the short run. And maybe that will buy you some time and give you some inspiration to start exercising and eating better. However, surgery is not a means to an end! It doesn’t change your head; it only changes your stomach. If you do decide to have the surgery, please understand that without deep changes in your thought process and exercise habits, the gastric bypass surgery “results” will not stick.

How Chemotherapy Kills Both Cancer Cells and Cancer Patients

Chemo Kills instead of Healsby: Dani Veracity

Imagine that you own a house that is absolutely perfect and beautiful with all the necessities, except that it has some rodents inside. When you call the exterminators, they tell you that they won’t be able to target just the rodents, as these rodents are of an especially stealthy breed. They tell you they’re just going to set off a series of explosions in your house that may kill the rodents. They warn you, “Oh yeah, it may destroy some of your house in the process, but, hey, you want those rodents out of your house, right?” There’s probably no way you would allow that; instead, you would do some research and find other, more specific and less generally destructive ways of getting rid of the rodents.

The allegorical exterminators’ logic makes no sense; yet, it’s the same logic that doctors who prescribe chemotherapy follow. Like the exterminators’ explosions, chemotherapy doesn’t exclusively target cancer cells; it also harms your good cells, destroying some of your body– your “house” – in the process. As a result, many chemotherapy patients lose their hair, develop immune deficiencies, lose weight and vomit. Chemotherapy poisons your body as a whole in an attempt to kill the cancer cells before the “treatment” brings your body to an unrecoverable state.

As Gary Null and James Feast write, “(After chemotherapy,) the hope is the cancer is going to be totally dead and you are only half dead and recover.” Unfortunately, some people are more than “half dead” after chemotherapy and remain damaged for the rest of their lives, no matter how long or how short that life may be. They never realize that according to many alternative health practitioners, there are safer ways of combating many types of cancer.

Former chemotherapy patient Anne explains in Michio Kushi’s and Alex Jack’s book,The Cancer Prevention Diet: “My mind rebelled at the thought of another six months of that poison. On several occasions, the doctor couldn’t Shocking Before and After Pic of Chemo Patientsperform chemotherapy treatments on me because my white blood cell count was dangerously low. I promised my body I would not undergo any further chemotherapy treatments.”

Anne’s account reflects the feelings of all too many cancer patients who have suffered through months of often debilitating chemotherapy. The side effects that chemotherapy patients feel and others see – the extreme nausea and vomiting, the hair loss, the weight loss – are indicative of the intense havoc that chemotherapy is causing within the body. According to the Life Extension Foundation,chemotherapy drugs are “cytotoxic,” meaning that “they kill cells that are extremely active.” Cancer cells are, of course, extremely active. However, so are the cells of the hair and the immune system, for example, which accounts for chemotherapy’s destructive side effects.

As if these side effects are not enough,cancer therapy commonly includes surgery and radiation, both of which have their own dangers and side effects. As Professor Null writes in his Complete Encyclopedia of Natural Healing, “The mainstream medical establishment often prescribes mastectomy, radiation and chemotherapy to treat cancer, an approach that has been described as a slash-and-burn strategy.” The treatment for breast cancer is unfortunately often the general rule among cancer treatment– cut off the affected organ, poison the body with chemotherapy and then harm the body even more with radiation.

InGet Healthy Now, Professor Null describes one woman’s experience with mainstream medicine’s approach to breast cancer treatment: “Three days later, she had her breast lopped off. That was followed up with lots of chemotherapy. Her hair fell out and she vomited 24 hours a day. She couldn’t keep any food down. Then they did radiation and her skin burnt up and two of her ribs broke.” He concludes, “Most people don’t know how dangerous radiation is. I had seen enough. I wouldn’t touch any of that medicine with a 10-foot pole.” Surgical removal of the cancerous body part also has its own aftereffects, of course, requiring not only the normal recovery after any surgery, but also coping with the psychological effects of having a body part removed.

It may all be unnecessary in the first place

As cancer patients suffer from the side effects of chemotherapy and other methods of mainstream cancer treatment, the fact remains that according to many medical practitioners, these treatments are unnecessary and sometimes do more harm than good. In response to chemotherapy’s many side effects, Dr. Atkins says in Burton Goldberg’s Alternative Medicine, “Only in situations in which chemotherapy is proven to be effective and curative would I recommend it. In general, this might be testicular cancer.”

Many people also think that surgery can sometimes do more harm than good: Biopsy, for example, may in fact spread cancer cells, according to Professor Null. Furthermore, the most extreme example of unnecessary cancer therapy– treatment for false positive cancer diagnoses – is more common than we’d like to believe, according toCritical Conditionauthors Donald L. Barlett and James B. Steele.

If, as many people believe, mainstream cancer treatment is sometimes ineffective and always harmful to the body as a whole, then what is the alternative? Goldberg writes that Ukrain, which is made from the alkaloids of the greater celandine plant and the pharmaceutical Thiotepa, “can do everything chemotherapy does but without the side effects, so it renders chemotherapy largely unnecessary.” The beauty of Ukrain is that it, unlike chemotherapy drugs, it only targets the cancer cells and not your healthy ones. Furthermore, good nutrition – vitamins, minerals, fiber, fresh fruit and vegetables, juices and medicinal herbs– can do wonders against cancer. Of course, you need to discuss a treatment plan that is right for your type of cancer and your body with a medical professional, preferably a naturopath. But before you say yes to chemotherapy, remember what it does to your body and consider all available treatments.

Shrinking Fibroids Tumors Naturally -Testimony

Shrinking Fibroids Naturally with Dr Akilah ElWritten September 12, 2010

About three years ago I passed out at work and was rushed to the hospital. At that time I was on my menstrual period and had very heavy bleeding. My periods were very heavy for the first three to four days and I would have to wear both pads and tampons at the same time. The bleeding was so bad that I had to change both of them every 2 hours. I normally stay at home on the first three days of my period but on this particular day I needed to be at the office to sign some very important paperwork. About thirty minutes before leaving for the day I fainted. My co-workers panicked and called the ambulance where I was rushed to the hospital. While there the doctor told me that I lost a lot of blood and he wanted to give me a blood transfusion. I declined that treatment. I didn’t do it for religious purposes because I am a saved Christian ,but I declined the blood transfusion because I didn’t need it. I learned from my father to never accept a blood transfusion unless I was dying from a knife or gunshot wound which resulted in losing a lot of blood. In this case, I wasn’t dying, I was just anemic from having heavy menstrual periods. The doctor was angry with my decision but he didn’t force the issue and I was sent home later that night with a bottle of iron pills.

The reason my periods were so heavy at that time was because of three fibroids I had in my uterus. I first found out about them back in 2003 and in 2005 I had them removed with myomectomy surgery. Two years later they came back even bigger. My doctor wanted to schedule another myomectomy  but if it didn’t work the first time why would go under the knife again for a second time? So I decided to just deal with the pain and heavy bleeding and search for a natural way to get rid of them FOR GOOD!

Searching for natural ways to get rid of my fibroids was not easy. A lot of website where selling books or you had to sign up for a retreat. I saw several advertisement for an herbal supplement that was created to shrink fibroids. They had a lot of testimonies about how good these herbs were and how it helped women with fibroids. I was a little skeptical because those herbs were very pricey but I was desperate to get rid of the fibroids so I ordered the 3 months supply which consist of 3 bottles at $137 plus shipping. I took them all as instructed and after three months I was still having heavy painful bleeding with lots of clots. I noticed that the soreness in my breast was gone, but after getting another ultrasound from my OB/GYN I was told that my fibroids were still there. I was so discouraged that I scheduled an appointment with my original doctor to discuss other possibilities for removing the fibroids. I was scheduled to see him a month later.

One week before my appointment with my medical doctor I was referred by my sister-inlaw to see Dr Akilah El in Atlanta, Georgia. She had fibroids and Dr Akilah helped her shrink them completely away. I got the number and gave her a call that day but she was busy with a patient so I left my name and number with her secretary. Later that night I did some research on Dr Akilah via the internet and I was shocked to see so many videos, interviews, testimonies and good reviews about her work. I was so impressed with what I read that I begin to get anxious to hear back from her. Two days later Dr Akilah called me back and I was so excited to finally hear from her. Talking to her was easy because she was so down to earth. Dr Akilah was very informative and she patiently answered all my questions in addition to educating me on health issues I didn’t know about. Something in my spirit felt right about Dr Akilah and I immediately scheduled an appointment with her for the following week. 

Meeting Dr Akilah in person was a very rewarding experience. I never spent that much time with a doctor before. I knew she was not a medical doctor because she wore normal clothes and she insist that everyone call her Dr Akilah and not Dr El. I brought my ultrasound report with me to the consultation and Dr Akilah patiently explained everything to me. She told me how I got fibroids in the beginning, why they came back after the myomectomy surgery and what I was doing to make them grow. Towards the end of the consultation Dr Akilah created a program for shrinking my fibroids. This program was written for my personal health position. On my program was a list of herbs to take, along with a new food plan and emotional exercises for the stress (and past family problems) I was experiencing at the time.  

HALLELUJAH!!!!!

After being on her program for a month my period was heavy but not heavy as before (I only used pads during my heavy cycle without the tampons). Usually my periods would last 8 days, with 3 – 4 days being very very heavy. I would also spot a lot in between my periods but the spotting stopped, with 2 days of heavy bleeding and my cycle lasting for only 6 days. Once this happened I cancelled my appointment with my Gynecologist and stayed loyal to my program written by Dr Akilah. After having two follow-up visits with Dr Akilah  she told me to contact my OB/GYN and schedule another ultrasound. By this time my periods were 4 days long. The first day was somewhat heavy. The second day was medium followed by the last two days were very light.

The Final Results – When I first came to Dr Akilah I had 3 fibroids. One was growing inside my uterus and the other two were inside the walls of my uterus. The largest fibroid was the size of a grapefruit. When I got my results back, the ultrasound reported that I only had one fibroid inside the wall of my uterus and that it was the size of a golf ball*.  So two fibroids completely dissolved away and the largest one was the size of a golf ball* instead of a grapefruit. This was during the fall of 2009. Since I wasn’t having any problems with my periods and 2 out of the 3 fibroids were gone, I decided to just continue with my last revised program and go on with my life.

Two months ago, I had another ultrasound with a new doctor and to my surprise (and hers) my fibroids were gone. My doctor kept going over and over the ultrasound report to make sure she was reading it correctly. She couldn’t believe that all of my fibroids were gone without surgery or medication. My uterus was back to it’s normal size and my periods are now 3 days long. She asked me what I  did to make them go away and I told her “I did what I should have done back in 2003. I got help from someone who knew what she was doing.”

There is not enough words to explain the gratitude and appreciation I have for Dr Akilah. I wish I knew about her when I first had fibroids but as she would say “Things happen for a reason”.

Hear me ladies and hear me well! Before you spend a lot of money on herbs claiming to shrink your fibroids go to Dr Akilah FIRST! Now that I’ve been through the entire process I see how those herbs I brought from that company overseas didn’t work. Ladies, I am here to tell you that Dr Akilah is very good at what she does and I highly recommend her. You have no idea how it feels to have my body back. I am so happy to go to work during my periods without the worry of soiling my clothes! All of this couldn’t have been done without the help of Dr Akilah. I am proud to be one of her many written testimonies.

I have given Dr Akilah permission to post this written testimony on her website. I also would like to invite anyone who wish to ask me questions about my experience to contact me by email. I am also open to phone calls if you are local.  Frankly, it would be my pleasure to share my experience dissolving my fibroids completely through Dr Akilah’s program.
