    Surviving 2 Bouts of Pancreatic Cancer pt 2 with Dr. Steven Lewis

    in Health

    Dr. Steven Lewis received a Ph.D. in exercise physiology from Stanford University in 1977 and is a visiting professor of clinical biomedical science in the Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton. His book is called "The Ripple Effect: How a Positive Attitude and Caring Community Helped Save My Life."


     He was in superb life-long health, until he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, a disease with a survival rate of only 5%. In spite of this, Steven and his wife struggled to achieve and deliberately maintain an extremely positive attitude. This choice started a "ripple effect" that created an exceptionally caring and upbeat community of family, relatives and friends and enabled this community to return even more positive energy to Steven. The story became even more intense when Steven endured a second bout of pancreatic cancer that metastasized to his liver. Surviving a second bout of pancreatic cancer is so rare that no statistics are kept. Today, Steven is cancer free, in excellent health and works out strenuously.

    Nutrition Advice for Pancreatic Cancer and the aftermath of Whipple Surgery

    in Health

    Today we would like to welcome Maria Petzel, a Clinical Dietitian with the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. Today we will be discussing Nutrition after Whipple Surgery and nutrition for those with Pancreatitis and Pancreatic Cancer. As many of us know, November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness month.

    According to the Hirshberg Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research, Pancreatic cancer has the highest mortality rate of all major cancers.  Only 6% of patients diagnosed with pancreatic cancer will survive more than five years. One theory that pancreatic cancer has a low survival rate, is because the symptoms may not be apparent until the cancer has already spread significantly.


    One method of treatment is Whipple surgery, named after the first surgeon to perform the procedure, Allen Whipple. Whipple surgery consist of removing a significant portion of the pancreas next to the small intestines It also involves removal of the duodenum, a portion of the common bile duct, gallbladder, and sometimes part of the stomach. Afterwards, surgeons reconnect the remaining intestine, bile duct, and pancreas.


    This is obviously a very intense surgery for a person to undergo, especially when recovering. It is critical for a person to consult with either a registered Dietitian or Doctor both before & after a surgical procedure.

    ENZYMES: The Gonzalez Nutritional Approach to Cancer

    in Health

    There is no one answer to the many complex conditions plaguing our modern society, so the answer has to be custom tailored to the uniqueness of the individual. Using a multifaceted approach, while addressing the underlying causes, allows our guest on this week’s Health Media Live radio program, to become very effective in helping his most challenging cases regain hope, and in many instances, life.


    Dr. Gonzalez graduated from Brown University and received his medical degree from Cornell University Medical College in 1983.  During a postgraduate immunology fellowship under Dr. Robert A. Good, considered the father of modern immunology and for years President of Sloan-Kettering, he completed a research study evaluating an aggressive nutritional therapy in the treatment of advanced cancer.  Since 1987, Dr. Gonzalez has been in private practice in New York City, treating patients diagnosed with cancer and other serious degenerative illnesses.  His therapy involves individualized diet, individualized supplement programs with pancreatic enzymes, and detoxification routines such as the coffee enemas.


    Dr. Gonzalez has released three books: The Trophoblast and the Origins of Cancer, One Man Alone, and What Went Wrong: The Truth Behind the Clinical Trial of the Enzyme Treatment of Cancer. For further information about Dr. Gonzalez or his books contact:  www.dr-gonzalez.com or New Spring Press LLC: www.newspringpress.com.

    Let's Talk Kingdom with Catrina-Interview with Grammy Artist Yasmeen Williams

    in Entertainment

    Grammy Award winning, Gospel Recording Artist, Yasmeen, releases new music for the soul


    One Artist’s Amazing Journey to Resurrection


    Yasmeen believes it is impossible to write about Christmas without writing about the Resurrection. When asked why, she replies "Because Jesus was born to die." Yasmeen’s power and vision for God’s work does not stop with her love for Gospel music, as she is singing her own testimony, of God’s grace and mercy in her life. Yasmeen’s journey while recording her most recent music was nothing less than remarkable, as she was diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer. With God’s unyielding hand of power and healing, she was able to overcome the ills of cancer. While, going through intensive cancer treatments, Yasmeen continued to stay focused on God’s purpose in her life, singing His praises and recording music that she believes will touch and save lives. Today, Yasmeen can claim victory, as the cancer is inactive! 


    Yasmeen attended and graduated from DC Public Schools, Spelman College, Bowie State University and Regent University earning a B.A in English, an M.A. in Counseling Psychology, and was working on her doctorate degree in Educational Psychology, when while writing the dissertation was diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer. However, Yasmeen completed all the doctoral coursework earning a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies, C.A.G. 


    She is a Grammy Award Winner and PrayzeFactor Peoples Choice Awards Winner for Best A Cappella Vocalist and Best Neo-Soul Vocalist.
