The Rhythm of Healing

First of all, the news reported below is very good news and offers fresh hope to cancer victims. If the preliminary findings hold then the treatment of cancer may make a major advance. It is based on 'timing'. As they say: "Timing is Everything." It turns out that the immune system operates on a cycle of between 12 and 14 days. It reminds me of the biorhythm cycles that have consistently proven themselves to be of great predictive value in my medical practice. There are three main biorhythm cycles:
The 21 day physical cycle
The 28 day emotional cycle, and
The 31 day intellectual cycle.
Without hitting the details, every 14 days there is a 'crisis day' in the emotional cycle - that's when your emotions are unstable and can lead to problems and mistakes of an emotional nature. I wonder if that cycle is related in anyway to the immune cycle reported on below. For more information on biorhythms look at www.facade.com

CANCER 'CODE' IS CRACKED in halting the spread of advanced cancer

By Lucy Johnson

By giving low-dose treatment at exactly the right time, researchers believe they have, against the odds, succeeded in halting the spread of advanced cancer.

Professor Michael Quinn has led the trial in patients with advanced ovarian cancer and suggests it could signal the most exciting development since the introduction of chemotherapy in the Fifties.

While he points out that it is still a theory, he said: “This is astonishing and could infl uence the treatment of all solid tumours in the future. We hope it will revolutionise the treatment of cancer.” Professor Quinn and his team reviewed 63 papers involving more than 1,200 patients since 2000.

They discovered that sufferers had about a 1-in-12 chance of responding to chemotherapy. ­During further studies they found the body has a fortnightly immune cycle during which it “switches on and off”.

When the immune system turns off, it releases “inhibitory cells” which prevent it fighting disease, including cancer.

Professor Quinn and his team in Melbourne, Australia, target chemotherapy when the immune system is not working to knock out “inhibitory cells”, dramatically improving patients’ chances of recovery.

The treatment is in pill form and patients avoid almost all the debilitating chemotherapy side effects.
