1st to 6th September 2013.

My teenagers were away this week and I had the support of friends to come in and feed me. Lots of home cooked meals have been prepared and bought in plus a lovely Paella cooked in my kitchen.

Fortunately, i work from home promoting Organo Gold and World Ventures and then provide my Social Media Strategy Consultancy. I did intend to go to London on 6/9/13 to meet up with #Sunzu /past #Ecademists but this had to be cancelled. Fortunately, alot of these contacts are on Facebook & Twitter so they are really close at hand for me and networking online has been something i have undertaken for the past twenty years so I am quite competent with it.

Just have to put a few projects on hold and concentrate on finding some new ones where i can just be online to share content and will need to start using online tools i.e Google #Hangouts to have long distance conversations with potential new clients.

The Chinese herb Ganoderma kills small-cell lung cancer cells ….

 that are resistant to many chemotherapy drugs, and it may prove a life-saving addition to current cancer therapy, according to a new study in Cancer Letters.

Small-cell lung cancer is particularly difficult to treat because the cancer spreads rapidly throughout the body, rather than forming large tumors that can be removed surgically. To treat this cancer, doctors typically turn to chemotherapy, which attacks cancer cells throughout the body.

Chemotherapy can have severe side effects though, because it attacks healthy cells as well as cancerous ones. And over time, lung cancer can become resistant to the effects of chemotherapy, rendering it virtually ineffective. “The chemotherapy would still work, but you’d have to use a dose that would be so toxic that the patient could not tolerate it,” explains lead study author David Sadava, PhD, Pritzker Foundation Professor of Biology at the Keck Science Center in Claremont, California and Adjunct Professor in the Department of Molecular Medicine at the City of Hope Cancer Center in Duarte, California.

Patients who have been told their cancer is not treatable often turn to alternative therapies, including herbs. The mushroom extract Ganoderma lucidum is one of the most popular of these herbs. It is widely available in health food stores as the Japanese herbal remedy, Reishi and the Chinese herb, Ling Zhi.

Ganoderma lucidum has been studied for its effects on leukemia, as well as on cancers of the breast, bladder, colon, and prostate. For the first time, Dr. Sadava and his team set out to investigate its effects on small-cell lung cancer. They also decided to look at 20 of the more than 250 other Ganoderma species in existence, to see if they too might have a benefit.

The researchers took extracts of these herbs and tested them on three different types of cells: drug-sensitive small-cell lung cancer, drug-resistant small-cell lung cancer, and normal lung cells. They discovered that Ganoderma lucidum, as well as eight other Ganoderma species killed lung cancer cells. Cancer cells responded to the herb much in the same way as they would react to chemotherapy drugs. Yet unlike chemotherapy drugs, which can also be toxic to healthy cells, herbal extracts were more deadly to cancer cells than to normal cells, indicating that they have some ability to specifically target cancer.

Treating the cancer cells with Ganoderma extract before administering chemotherapy drugs made the cancer more sensitive to treatment, which could potentially lower the effective dose of chemotherapy enough for patients to tolerate it, Dr. Sadava says.

Ganoderma won’t replace current therapies for small-cell lung cancer, but it can work in conjunction with chemotherapy to increase its effectiveness. Dr. Sadava believes that new treatments to combat lung cancer will be available in the near future, but in the meantime, “You have to do something as a transition measure to help these patients who are dying,” he says. “This herb, which is widely available and widely used, and has no side effects that we know of, should be considered for people who have drug-resistant lung cancer, along with chemotherapy.”

Drink Coffee – Earn extra Income in Eastbourne

I would love to tell you about my home business and let you see how easy it is to earn extra income with an Organo Gold Eastbourne home business.

At first glance, it appears that Eastbourne’s Organo Gold is one of the many coffee suppliers in Eastbourne. After all, their main Eastbourne product line includes several varieties of coffee including Black Coffee, Gourmet Latte, and Gourmet Cafe Mocha. First and foremost, however, Organo Gold sells one of the treasures of the earth: the revered Ganoderma Lucidum herb. Coffee is simply a familiar and beloved delivery system.

Organo Gold Co-founder Shane Morand explains: ‘If I come to you or you go to a friend and say, ‘How about some Ganoderma?’ they’re going to run away. But, if I say, ‘How about a cup of coffee? I need to talk to you about something,’ you wouldn’t even think twice about drinking that coffee.

It’s a simple, social thing that people do all the time.’ With Organo Gold coffee though, it’s what happens after drinking the coffee that makes all of that difference? What happens is people notice when they drink this coffee that it tastes delicious and it makes them feel good.’

There are many income opportunities in Eastbourne, but the Organo Gold opportunity is one of the most promising that I have ever come across. That’s why I partnered with Organo Gold. If you have been looking for a way to pocket some extra income in Eastbourne, there probably isn’t an easier way than inviting people over for coffee.

Coffee is the second most traded commodity in the world after oil. People in the Eastbourne area drink coffee all day, every day. So here is a very powerful question: When was the last time you were paid every time someone in Eastbourne  (or anywhere in the world) enjoyed a savory cup of coffee?

Good News! Ganoderma Coffee for Eastbourne

Best start to the day is  a rich and flavorful cup of coffee!

Organo Gold makes their coffee with Ganoderma Lucidum, an herb that has been used in China for thousands of years. This miracle plant contains more than 200 compounds.

I don’t know about you, but if I can have a nice hot  cup of coffee in Eastbourne every day and get Ganoderma at the same time: I’m in! Organo Gold coffee is made with Ganoderma Spore Powder.

The Spore powder is rich in polysaccharides, triterpenes, organic germanium and selenium.
