The Biological Environment of the Body
 

The United States has one of the highest cancer rates in the world. Until recently most cancer research has focused on studying the cancer cell and not the biological environment in which cancer reside. However the milieu of the body plays an important role in the ability of cancer to thrive according to Keith I. Block, MD (medical director of the Block Center for Integrative Cancer Treatment) . The biological environment in the body is greatly influenced by diet and life style. Optimizing that environment through diet is a powerful tool anybody has available for themselves. Food can be one of our most powerful medicines and healing agent.

 


 

Inflammation and it's Connection to Modern Diseases
 
Inflammation is part of the body's immune response; without it, we can't heal. But when it's out of control—as in an auto-immune disease—it can damage the body. Almost every modern disease is caused or affected by prolonged inflammation in the body. http://www.karger.com/Article/Abstract/87104
Reducing inflammation in the body through a healing-inflammation diet can dramatically improve your health and quality of life.
