Arsenic changes how cells regulate DNA and cell growth to ways more commonly seen in later stage and more deadly breast cancers.
I wonder why the conventional doctors we saw in a Singapore Public Hospital–did not even try to find the cause of Breast Cancer and why certain breast cancers are more agressive than the others.
Dr. Lee of Integrated Medicine also had Nanay undergo Hair Mineral tests, which tests the levels of minerals in her hair for the past 6-12 months.
I was expecting she would have high levels of mercury, cadmium and lead, but the irony is her mercury/cadmium/lead levels (in the hair) is quite normal.
Surprisingly, her arsenic levels are quite high. There are 2 types of Arsenic: organic and inorganic. The organic arsenic are naturally occuring in food and nature, however the inorganic arsenic is known to be harmful. I forgot to ask Dr. Lee if they found inorganic arsenic in Nanay;s hair.
Inorganic Arsenic is a known cause for breast cancer as it alters cell signals and damage DNA cells.
Imagine if we did not test Nanay’s blood for heavy metal toxicity?? She could have been eating all the right foods and getting all the right treatment for other bodily functions–and praying everyday–but if her Arsenic levels continue to be high–then the damage to her DNA cells will continue–and this in combination with her high levels of 16OH will probably aggrevate her situation.
God has given us the wisdom to know that whatever we need to live and to heal is already in nature. However, He also reminds us that we live in a fallen world. There are certain things/toxins that we inhale or ingest in our bodies without us knowing it may cause us to be sick.
And yes, I believe in miracles. Miracles are in everyday things–the wisdom given to doctors, and laymen to know the difference between overmedication and the right medication for the right diagnosis. The difference between a quack and a miracle.
I also believe that even today Christ manifests Himself in the physical world through miracle healing. However, these miracle healings only gathered believers who probably had the grace to receive God at that point in time. And you have to agree with me, that there are "miracle healings" that gives Christianity a bad name, either because it is done by a "false believer" or it lacks the medical records to support its claims
How might Nanay be exposed to arsenic?
- Ingesting small amounts present in your food and water or breathing air containing arsenic.
- Breathing sawdust or burning smoke from wood treated with arsenic.
- Living in areas with unusually high natural levels of arsenic in rock.
- Working in a job that involves arsenic production or use, such as copper or lead smelting, wood treating, or pesticide application.
I suspect that Nanay was exposed to Arsenic when she was working in JJ Knittwear. A garment factory exporting knitted wear to the US. She worked there for almost 24 years. However, the hair mineral tests, indicates Arsenic in the body for the last 6 -12 months, so I still cannot isolate Singapore drinking water as a source/contaminant.
I know I may be paranoid, but I guess buying a water test kit to test tap water here in Singapore, will not do us any harm (except a few dollars of expenses).
Dr. Lee did not advise any theraphy or medication to reduce Arsenic in Nanay’s body. At least not yet. He says, that we have to support Nanay’s Kidney and Liver before attempting to remove these toxins in her body.
Interestingly, one form of Arsenic (Arsenic Trioxide) is now an FDA approved drug for cancer, which is in-league with Tamoxifen. I wonder why FDA is approving drugs with harmful toxins??
