Gut Reaction: Do You Have One?

Posted on January 26th, 2014 by Jane G. Goldberg, Ph.D.

My daughter’s recent bout with Mono has been an education for me. We treated it holistically, and probably halved the amount of time she was feeling ill (based on the usual course of the disease). Thankfully, she is totally fine now, and back at school. But, of course, I was interested in what may have caused her to get sick. Read more…

Raw or Rocket Fuel? Take Your Pick…

Posted on January 21st, 2014 by Jane G. Goldberg, Ph.D.

Now that winter is here, I am making more than ever my batches of dehydrated crackers. My favorite recipe is for my Rosemary Crackers (which are universally loved), for which I use sprouted flaxseeds and sprouted almonds. It’s important to sprout raw nuts and seeds by soaking them first. Nature’s defense mechanisms include nutritional inhibitors and toxic substances: enzyme inhibitors, phytates (phytic acid), polyphenols (also known as tannins), and goitrogens. All these are removed automatically by nature when it rains–the nut or seed gets wet and can then germinate to produce a plant. When we soak our nuts and seeds, we are mimicking nature. Read more…

Chris Christie’s Decision (Not the One About Running for President)

Posted on October 7th, 2013 by Jane G. Goldberg, Ph.D.

My last Musings discussed Angelina Jolie’s (in my mind, ill-advised) decision to have a prophylactic double mastectomy. In this Musings, I stay with the celebrity theme, and question New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s February decision to have Lap-Band surgery to bring his weight down.
It has traditionally been thought that bariatric surgery works because of the diminished size of the stomach. The operation is performed on people who have lost the ability to control their own eating habits. The surgery makes decisions for them, imposing upon them eating habits that are radically different than those they were employing before the surgery: Smaller meals, more frequent meals, less junk and fried foods. (Sweets, for instance, in any volume, make many post-surgery patients sick.) Read more…

Beautiful Better Best Breasts

Posted on May 20th, 2013 by Jane G. Goldberg, Ph.D.

The world is abuzz about Angelina’s recent decision to have both breasts removed — a double mastectomy. Angelina does not have cancer. She has the genetic marker(BRCA1 or BRCA2) for a specific form of breast cancer, thus, presumably, increasing her genetic predisposition for getting breast cancer at some point in her life. Angelina stated that she hopes “that other women will benefit” from her experience. Read more…

The Two Best Brains You Have (after the one in your head)

Posted on May 6th, 2013 by Jane G. Goldberg, Ph.D.

The nutritionist who saved my mother’s life from terminal cancer – Bernard Jensen – was fairly obsessed with bowels. He wrote a book called Tissue Cleansing through Bowel Management, which was a seminal book on understanding the relationship between the bowel/the gut and health. He also developed the colema board, a kind of home colonic unit that Ruth Sackman, founder of the Foundation of the Advancement of Cancer Therapies, had all her cancer patients using. Read more…

Beauty, Brains and Brawn (the fastest way to get them all and live longer too)

Posted on January 31st, 2013 by Jane G. Goldberg, Ph.D.

How far you can reach beyond your toes from a sitting position, back against the wall, legs straight out in front of you? It may sound like an unimportant question, but it may actually be an important predictor of your longevity. Read more…

Victor Vega

Posted on May 16th, 2012 by Jane G. Goldberg, Ph.D.

One Guy Knows How to Improve (and maybe even cure) All Kinds of Diseases: (and for those of you who care about such things, he’s a Johns Hopkins traditionally trained oncologist). Although Victor is well-versed in successfully treating many difficult cases of cancer (his Testimonial page on his website indicates such), his most recent interest has been in treating severe neurological disturbances: autism, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, ALS, epilepsy and more. He uses a technique that has been used successfully in Europe and Russia for the management of degenerative neurological diseases but is little known in the U.S. Read more…

Cancer Stats, Cancer Screening, Cancer Chemo

Posted on February 29th, 2012 by Jane G. Goldberg, Ph.D.

For many decades, it has been thought that the best way to protect oneself from getting cancer was early detection. Detection begins with screening. The most prevalent screenings are the mammogram for breast cancer, the Pap test for cervical and uterine cancers, and the P.S.A. for prostate cancer. Recent studies, however, have resulted in a dramatic shift of thinking that is leading even mainstream cancer researchers to question the accuracy and validity of these screening techniques.

Cheapest Ways of Being Healthy

Posted on December 10th, 2011 by Jane G. Goldberg, Ph.D.

La Casa continues to get near-miraculous results with our pulsed magnetic therapy:

This technology addresses our fundamental nature which is that we are bio-electric at the level of our cells. Medicine treats with chemistry but in order for the chemistry to work our cells need to carry a full charge or voltage. Like batteries, when our cells are deficient in their electrical charge they can’t function properly and all manner of ailments and degenerative conditions result. La Casa’s pulsed magnetic machine transmits this energy into our bodies on the cellular level.

Floating is more than fun:

Recent research in Birmingham University has shown that Magnesium and Sulfate pass through the skin and raise the levels detected in the blood. This can have important benefits to health because both Magnesium and Sulfate deficiencies are common. Magnesium is essential to life and deficiency is linked to many diseases including cardiovascular disease.

The cheapest at-home-cure for everything:

Bentonite clay carries a uniquely strong negative ionic charge which causes it to `magnetically` attract any substance with a positive ionic charge (i.e., bacteria, toxins, metals, etc.). These substances are both adsorbed (sticking to the outside like Velcro) and absorbed (drawn inside) by the clay molecules. Your body doesn’t digest clay, so the clay passes through your system, collecting the toxins, and removing them as the clay is eliminated. It’s like a little internal vacuum cleaner. Read more…

Who Decides on What treatment a Child Gets for Cancer?

Posted on December 9th, 2011 by Jane G. Goldberg, Ph.D.

Welcome to the second e-letter of Musings from 20th St. I am happy to announce that I WILL NOT be arrested. I was running scared there for a while. As a member of the Nemenhah Native American Tribe, I was somewhat involved in the Danny Hauser case. If you haven’t been reading the papers in the last week, he is a 13 year old boy, diagnosed with cancer, who told his mother after one chemotherapy session that he would not… read more

7 Day Total Cleanse

Posted on December 5th, 2011 by Jane G. Goldberg, Ph.D.

The third episode of my new Reality TV Group Therapy show aired last night. Again, as I did for the first airing, I had people over to watch it with, and we had a lively, smart discussion afterward – about the nature of group process, and the psychology of the particular participants. Air time is always Tuesday, 7:30 pm, channel 57. But thankfully, because of our miraculous “time is eternal” world, replay is too. Watch all episodes on youtube, posted… read more

Tesla Technology and Living Longer

Posted on November 13th, 2011 by Jane G. Goldberg, Ph.D.

For almost a year now I have been participating in an experiment which has the possibility of extending my life. The process is a bit bizarre. I lie on a mat which is energized by a contraption that makes a fair amount of noise, but most bizarrely, it makes my battery operated alarm clock go off every few minutes. Also, light bulbs held in my hand start glowing, even though they are not plugged into an outlet. Sounds kind of… read more

Important documentaries

Posted on September 15th, 2011 by Jane G. Goldberg, Ph.D.

I have recently seen two documentaries that are important. The first was begun by Ruth Sackman, who served as my first mentor in holistic health shortly after I moved to New York. In 1971, Ruth founded The Foundation for Advancement of Cancer Therapies, the first non-profit organization whose sole purpose was to dissiminate information about non-toxic, biological therapies for cancer (and all other abnormal bodily conditions). Ruth’s guidance saved my mother’s life as she struggled with the metastatic cancer (from… read more

New Soviet Discoveries Behind the Iron Curtain

Posted on July 12th, 2011 by Jane G. Goldberg, Ph.D.

Remember the 1984 book, Soviet Discoveries Behind the Iron Curtain? That book, and a later book called The Secret Lives of Plants, showed us how far ahead Russian research has been in the understanding of the interconnectedness of all things in the universe. From Russian discoveries, we have learned about the subtle world involving the interface between animals, plants and humans; we have learned about the arena of psychic communication and paranormal events; and we have learned, most recently, about… read more

Radiation hormesis

Posted on August 14th, 2011 by Jane G. Goldberg, Ph.D.

As the co-author (with Jay Gutierrez) of a recent book, Because People Are Dying, on the healing technology of radiation hormesis – the use of low-level radiation to strength the immune system and heal diseases — I felt I should give out as much credible information as I can about the disaster that is unfolding in Japan, and what that may mean to both the Japanese and to those of us who are safely tucked away in or own homes, watching… read more

Healing Corridor of East 20th St.

Posted on April 8th, 2010 by Jane G. Goldberg, Ph.D.

The Healing Corridor of East 20th Street It occurred to me what an amazing corridor for healing East 20th Street is – so I decided to give a conceptual map of all of what is happening on my street – from the east river to 5th Ave (at which point the street changes to the much less interesting West 20th St). Kevin Courtois: 441 E. 20th St; First stop on our journey is at Kevin Courtois’. Kevin is an… read more

Oxygen. Ozone, Health and AntiAging

Posted on February 11th, 2010 by Jane G. Goldberg, Ph.D.

Subject: free lecture at La Casa on little known healing technology for most afflictions finding from the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine…“The biggest difference between a 25 year old and a 70 year old is the 25 year old body is better able to utilize oxygen.” We know today that the leading cause of aging is the inability to get oxygen into cells. Oxygen, along with food, is the primary nutrient that cells use to generate energy for all… read more

What Everyone Should Know about the Flu

Posted on January 7th, 2009 by Jane G. Goldberg, Ph.D.

What Everyone Should Know about the Flu: (culled from various sources) LESSONS Lesson 1: We constantly have Streptococcus in our throats, yet we rarely experience Strep Throat. The same is true of cancer; Lewis Thomas, past President of Sloan-Kettering, proposed the prevailing theory of cancer – that we have cancer cells in our bodies all the time, but only when our immunity doesn’t recognize the cancer cells as pathogenic entities, are they allowed the replicate and cause health issues. The… read more
