Cancer is the second leading cause of death globally, and was responsible for 8.8 million deaths in 2015 as mentioned in the WHO. In this lecture we will focus on the natural ways to prevent cancers. As stated in the literature only 5–10% of all cancer cases can be attributed to genetic defects, whereas the remaining 90–95% have their roots in the environment and lifestyle (Preetha Anand et al. Pharm Res. 2008 Sep; 25(9): 2097–2116). We will delve into certain supplements such as curcumin which has 4000 pub med articles on that herb alone. Curcumin has different methods it can be administered eg Intravenous route as well as oral. Certain vitamins that can be taken oral and parenteral IV routes such as vitamin C and many others. Will touch upon heavy metals (Cd, Hg, As etc…) that are associated to which typical cancers eg leukemia, lymphoma, bladder cancer. How to test for heavy metal exposure, and which methods are best eg hair or urine challenge test. I hope to give the attendees of the conference knowledge to start using in practice

Deeper biomedical scientific understandings often update interpretations of more elusive ancient Chinese theory, and in return, many Chinese theories fill gaps in biomedical understandings. Using a rich history of case studies and biomedical research establishes a framework of pragmatic medical approaches to medical presentations that are often poorly managed through established protocols or treated with experimental drugs. Tremors, seizure disorders, chronic pain, and autoimmune diseases are highlighted examples of applying combined biomedical and Chinese medical theories in a way that generates better clinical results. Bridging gaps between Western medical understanding and approach to allodynia, and Chinese medical understanding and approach to Bi Syndrome is an example of how the medical paradigms can work together in a way that transforms standard of care. Clinical findings include stabbing pain, electric sensations, swelling, numbness, discoloration, and lingering sores. The standard of care is minimizing exposure to stimuli and managing pain with medications. Chinese medical approach includes resolving exterior pathogenic fluids causing painful obstruction and harassing nerves while bolstering systemic fluids that were depleted. Acupuncture, Chinese medical herbs, moxibustion, and dietary therapy can resolve the pain and sensitivity, resolve the swelling and discoloration, and reduced the stiffness to the point that physical therapy can be started to restore full range of motion. Combined research and clinical experience is recommended as a future application to feasibly repeatable approaches. Clinical outcomes of integrating care for many presentations can develop into improved standards of care.
