How cancer specifically and actually metastasizes has been a medical mystery. This article picked up by Reuters in London reveals that scientists have found that cancer spreads from a primary site by sending an envoy out through normal bone marrow cells to prepare a new site for growth. This breakthrough information will be highly useful in modern and alternative therapies to stop the envoys from being sent to prevent the spread of cancer.

Here is an important excerpt from the article:

“…The authors show that tumor cells can mobiles normal bone marrow cells, causing them to migrate to particular regions and change the local environment so as to attract and support a developing metastasis,” Patricia Steeg, of the National Cancer Institute in Bethesda, Maryland, said in a commentary.

“Cells at the site of the metastasis multiply and produce a protein called fibronectin, which acts like a glue to attract and trap the bone marrow cells to create a landing pad or nest for the cancer cells.

“These nests provide attachment factors for the tumor cells to implant and nurture them. It causes them not only to bind but to proliferate. Once that all takes place we have a fully formed metastatic site or secondary tumor,” said Lyden.

“This is the first time anyone has discovered what we call the pre-metastatic niche.”

“Without the landing pad, the cancerous cell could not colonize the organ.”

Profile of Burton Goldberg
Doctor of Humanities Honoree Capital University of Integrated Medicine

If you want to know what’s on the forefront in alternative medicine, ask publisher Burton Goldberg. If you want to know which therapies work best and what’s politically urgent, he’s your man. He’s spent over 30 years carefully researching every aspect of holistic medicine, from California to Israel, Mexico to Russia. But it’s taken only a few years for this self-made businessman to emerge as “The Voice of Alternative Medicine.”

What put Goldberg on the fast track to national prominence was the 1994 publication of his now best-selling Alternative┬áMedicine: The Definitive Guide ,produced by his own publishing company. With over 750,000 copies in print, this 1,250 page reference work on how to treat 200 health conditions with alternative medicine has been hailed as “the bible of alternative medicine.” The new completely revised edition has been published by Ten Speed Press of Berkeley, CA in June 2002.

Burton Goldberg is on a mission to reform conventional medicine and to help people reclaim their health. He’s a dynamo, traveling, speaking, and teaching all over the country three weeks out of every month. You may have seen him on TV in the U.S. or Canada.

Goldberg is passionate about alternative medicine–and is committed to helping forge profound, positive changes in health care and medical awareness. To further this pursuit, he has published a series of Alternative Medicine Definitive Guides to various health conditions. This series includes the landmark publication, An Alternative Medicine Definitive Guide to Cancer, in which 37 top alternative medicine physicians explain their proven, safe, non-toxic, and successful treatments for reversing cancer today.

Each Alternative Medicine Guide includes years of research from leading-edge alternative medicine experts from around the world. These experts present the safest and most effective treatment alternatives to prevent and permanently reverse serious health conditions. The Guides include the latest in clinical research and dozens of real-life patient success stories. More than 1,250,00 books have been sold to date.

What you most need to know about Burton Goldberg is that he has a mission to reform American medicine and to help Americans reclaim their health. He wants people to know that with alternative medicine, every disease is reversible.

In trauma and emergency situations, mainstream medicine can work wonders. But in the vast majority of health conditions, alternative medicine has the treatments that can help. These effective alternative treatments are based on clinical studies and verifiable results–results that have been ignored by conventional medicine. But patients are changing this, patients want therapies that work, that give them healing, and that don’t bankrupt them.

Ask Burton Goldberg why there is an epidemic of heart disease and cancer, what your doctor won’t tell you, and how you can prevent these diseases. According to Goldberg, probably the most important factor in disease today is bodily toxicity. Since the 1950’s, we have been exposed to thousands of synthetic chemicals in our foods, water, air, and bodies. Most of these are poisons once they enter the body and unless you remove them, they lodge in the tissues, organs, and blood where they poison us from within. This is why there is an epidemic of degenerative illnesses; heart disease, cancer, headaches, diabetes, and the list goes on and on. But alternative medicine has the answers to reverse and prevent chronic illness before it occurs.

Burton Goldberg’s goal is to move our society from a system of sick care to a system of well care. He’ll talk about what the insurance companies are doing and about current legislation that can dramatically change our health. He’ll discuss the politics of medicine and how alternative medicine can save Medicare.

The bottom line is — Burton Goldberg’s mission is to empower people with the information they need to make positive health choices–and his message is saving lives!

School is a particularly difficult time for children suffering from attention deficit disorder and other related problems. In America, thousands of our children come to school drugged into passivity on Ritalin and other psychiatric drugs. “Pop a pill” has too long been the cry of conventional medicine and frustrated parents. Alternative medicine offers options to help your child without exposing him to powerful psychiatric drugs.

Dr. Burton Goldberg recommends the Optimal Brain Makeover developed by Dr. Charles Gant. Dr. Gant’s healing approach improves brain function while addressing the risk factors associated with AD/HD.

  1. Food and additive allergies
  2. Heavy and toxic metal toxicity and environmental toxins
  3. Low-protein, high-carbohydrate diet
  4. Mineral imbalances
  5. Essential fatty acid and phosphiolipid deficiencies
  6. Amino acid deficiencies
  7. Thyroid disorder
  8. B vitamin and phytonutrient deficiencies

There is no single cause of AD/HD, explains Dr. Gant, “rather there are cumulative effects of many physiological risk factors” that result in AD/HD symptoms. There is no need to drug your child; Dr. Gant’s methods offer a successful alternative. Click the post title to learn what you can do to help your child without exposing him to powerful psychiatric drugs. Dr. Gant provides many articles and resources, books and training manuals to help parents cope with AD/HD. Click the post title to learn more.
