Breast Cancer – The Power of Choice
Yes to Life London Seminar

Saturday 5th July 2014: 9.30 –  4.30 pm
Glazier’s Hall, 9 Montague Close, London SE1

Yes to Life is delighted that Sheila Dillon, Radio 4’s Food Programme Presenter will host a ground-breaking  seminar on breast cancer headlined by Dr Francisco Contreras, Director and President of the Oasis of Hope Hospital in Mexico. 

Breast Cancer is the most common cancer in the UK with incidence rates having increased by 70% since the mid-1970’s.  Although survival rates have been improving, in 2011 in the UK, around 11,700 women died from breast cancer (that’s around 32 per day).*

The seminar will look at ways to support a weakened immune system; taking an integrative approach to breast cancer care; and therapies for supporting the body through breast cancer and standard treatments. 

Joining Dr Contreras will be :

  • Dr Siegfried Trefzer from High Tree Medical Clinic;

  • Dr Stefan Geider from Camphill Medical Practice NHS, Aberdeen;

  • Barbara Gallani who will demonstrate the importance of exercise and, in particular, yoga;

  • Two inspirational women will share their personal journey of recovery from breast cancer;  

  • Ted Poulter, a physical activity and public health expert and a member of the Macmillan expert advisory group on a physical activity; 

  • Question and Answer sessions will be held during the day and there will be an opportunity to meet the speakers during refreshments and lunch.

The seminar is aimed at the general public, health care professionals, carers, complementary therapists, and anyone with an interest in breast cancer.

Happy 2014 – lessons learned in 2013

Updated March 2016 – For more information on GcMAF, please join the GcMAF and GcMAF Cancer forums on Facebook – they are closed groups, so you have to wait for your membership to be confirmed.  They contain up-to-date information on sources of GcMAF, and also feedback and contributions  by people who are using GcMAF.

Updated 10 Jan 2014 – previously “Happy Christmas and 2014”

Updated 22 Feb 2014:  please note that the process for culturing Maf314 is different from Bravo Probiotic.  I am therefore unable to offer any cultures because I suspect my Maf314 culture is no longer viable.  I suggest that if you want to start, you buy a fresh set of cultures from Bravo as only they can guarantee the activity of the cultures.  Compound 1 must be cultured afresh from powder each time.  Compound 2 can be re-propagated from the existing culture.

Happy 2014 to all my friends and family.

It’s been a year when the rug’s been constantly pulled from under my feet.  So thank you for seeing me through a challenging year.

It was a year in which I found a voice through this blog, I also met Grace Gawler who is a wise and generous cancer strategist who has held my hand throughout 2013, and been an integral partner in my journey.

To my friends on the cancer journey – may this year bring you NED and good health and loads of money for and success in all the treats and treatments you may need.

(Here’s a short video I found, that I took from my room at Hallwang – the magic of the soft, falling snow and wintry scene in the Black Forest seems apt for this festive message)
