The Hernandez Center 
for Adjunctive Cancer Care


From The Cambridge English Dictionary: " The expression "elephant in the room" is a metaphorical idiom in English for an important or enormous topic, problem, or risk that is obvious or that everyone knows about but no one mentions or wants to discuss because it makes at least some of them uncomfortable or is personally, socially, or politically embarrassing, controversial, inflammatory, or dangerous."

Essentially, we are all guinea pigs as we are being forced to accept an EMF situation that has been poorly studied.  Many people have buried their heads in the sand rather than confront the global EMF issue that is rapidly getting out of hand.  Denial is common when a situation is so big that remediation may cause changes in finances, lifestyle and major modifications in how we do things.   Humans have historically been resistant to change.  This is especially true in medicine.

In the late 1800s, doctors who advocated sterile procedure in the operating room were ostracized.  In England, a doctor was jailed for saying blood circulated.  For hundreds of years, people who were ill were thought to be suffering from bad "humours" and were bled to dispel the sickness.  The instances go on and on.  My intuition and research tell me that sometime in the future we will finally acknowledge the harm that EMFs cause all humans, especially children and fetuses.

In this issue of the Pacific Naturopathic Newsletter Dr. Connie and Dr. Marcel address the EMF issue with hard science and offer tips on dealing with the energetic onslaught to our health.

Dr. Connie begins by a historical musing on the frequencies of health and the frequencies that we are being exposed to; Dr. Marcel explores just three EMF generators: smart meters, cell phones and wireless routers and offers remediation advice; and Dr. Connie returns with a thoughtful perspective on how we need to change our relationships with technology to survive in the modern world.  Anandini, our favorite acupuncturist, offers advice on protecting our health as we enter "wind" season.

A couple of other items in this issue of note...

Glutathione  -- the liver just doesn't make enough of it to deal with modern life. This short article will quickly make you yearn for glutathione.  As an aside, more and more people are coming in to our infusion center for glutathione infusions.  The infusions take about five to ten minutes.  They can be done alone or after a Myers Cocktail.

Centurion Pulsed Electromagnetic Frequency Generator --  Not all EMFs are damaging to our health.  There are some frequencies that actually are healing.  Directly below please read about the latest therapeutic offering at Pacific Naturopathic.  We have the device at home now and like it so much we are reluctant to bring it into the office.

The  Hernandez Center for Adjunctive Cancer Care  articles include a study on EMF exposure on health, another study on EMFs and cancer and a fascinating study on how cancers cells survive by cannibalizing other cancer cells.

Finally.... Our patients love our I onic Detox Foot Bath.   Scroll down  to discover how to receive sessions in our office.

Note: No Myers  Cocktail Saturday in October or November.

May all beings be healthy and happy!

New to Our Office: The Centurion
(A "Tesla Recharging Station for Humans")

Jane Hernandez, our resident EFT and hypnotherapy practitioner, got immediate relief from knee pain 

PEMF (Pulsed Electromagnetic Frequency) technology was approved by the FDA in 1979 and has been used for the past 50 years to treat various conditions such as non-union bone fractures, rotator cuff tendinitis and peripheral nerve regeneration. 

Documented studies indicate that PEMF Devices can be effective for treating osteoarthritis. PEMF treatment can reduce pain and swelling and have overall beneficial effects on the cardiovascular and autonomic nervous system. 

Drs. Marcel and Connie thought to try a PEMF device for these purposes, and came home from last month's conference with the Centurion, a ring shaped PEMF device. Dr. Marcel and Jane (Dr. Marcel's sister and our EFT practitioner) tried it on their knees. Dr. Connie tried it on a threatening frozen shoulder. The research documented efficacy over a month's period of time, but all three of us felt an increase in relaxation and got some immediate relief from joint pain with the first 30 minute treatment. We are all eager to see the effects of the suggested two treatments daily.  
Try a treatment in the office yourself. (Contraindicated for those with pacemakers,  electronic stimulators, any magnetic or metal implants, and stents. Inadvisable in the first month of pregnancy.)  $30 for 30 minutes.  

To reserve a treatment time please phone 650-961-1660

Metamorphosis: Matter to Energy

by Connie Hernandez, ND
We humans are beings of energy living in a world of energy...born of energy, molded by energy, intaking energy, emanating energy. In 2019, we have relatively recently entered an age long cycle in which mankind has begun to truly grasp the truth that energy trumps matter.  We know that everything in the universe has a unique energy signature, that we live in a hologrammatic and interconnected universe, that energy can transform and destroy. 
As to the specifics in medicine, we are in our infancy, just beginning to toddle onwards. Modern medicine has progressed from crude anatomic solutions to medicine based on physiology, biochemistry and molecular biology. Resting on this foundation, naturopathy is the original functional medicine, focusing on the optimization of biologic systems.  Naturopathic doctors are trained to discover and address the root cause of a disease, whether genetic, environmental, lifestyle, mental or emotional.  And, beyond that, naturopaths pay homage to the Vix Medicatrix Naturae, or the healing power of nature, that force that patterns and animates all of life. Therapies aim to facilitate the flow of that life force through the body to effect a cure. Foremost among energy remedies, effecting a cure through the movement of life force, are homeopathy, flower essences, acupuncture, hand healing, spiritual healing and more.

The Health Dangers of Smart Meters, Cell Phones and Wireless Routers and How to Lower the Risks of Serious Illnesses

by Marcel Hernandez, ND

In every moment of our lives, most of us are literally drenched in EMFs (Electro Magnetic Frequencies).  We have adopted wireless technology without taking into consideration its potential impact on health.   We have erected millions of cell towers and wi-fi hotspots that continually bathe our planet and its inhabitants in man-made radiation.  EMFs are ubiquitous in our homes, offices, schools and elsewhere. 
These EMF signals interfere with our body's electrical circuitry as our tissues are absorbing constant radiation.  Our municipalities are now allowing wireless "smart utility meters" on our homes and 5G small cell antennas inside our neighborhoods that pulse constant radiation signals. The clinical result is that we are now seeing both children and adults present with symptoms ranging from headaches, nausea, anxiety, depression, sleep disorders and behavior issues, to cancers, heart problems, chronic illnesses, DNA mutations and infertility.

Surviving in a Strange New World

by Dr. Connie Hernandez

Already stressed by the perils of pollution and pesticides and plastics, one could easily be overwhelmed by the newer threat of electro-smog. Our lives are so emmeshed with frequency dependent technologies that it is shocking to realize that we may need to change our relationship with these technologies in order to survive in good health. Though there surely are as yet untested beneficial frequencies, frequencies adverse to human health are generated by many devices and systems that have become integral to our everyday lives. Could today's children even imagine the loss of connectivity they would endure without smart phones and WiFi, without immediate access to all manner of information?

Don't Catch Wind!

Anandini Wadera, L.Ac.

As many of you know, I am quite concerned with the Chinese Medicine concept of "Wind," and the "Wind Gates." 

In case you need a bit of refresher, "Wind" is chaotic movement of Qi, and it can attack the body if we are tired, immunosuppressed or out on a cold, windy day without appropriate outer wear. In other words, "Wind" is a virus or the common cold.
Fall brings Wind, Cold and the flu season!
A simple home remedy to keep your immune system Wind-free include a daily, small dose of Elderberry and Astragalus. Elderberry, a native shrub-like plant to North America and the UK, produces tiny flowers and dark purple/black berries with medicinal properties. They're actually quite easy to grow, but if you're looking for an immune boost, symptom relief from the flu and sinusitis, you can run out to a health food store and buy a tincture. 
Astragalus, a herb used often in Chinese Medicine for a wide array of health issues, has its roots in boosting the immune system. It strengthens the Spleen and Lung Qi which are responsible for protecting our exterior, like a protective jade screen. 
The combination of these herbs during flu season will help you fight that Wind!

Glutathione: You've heard of it, 
so here are the facts: 

(Dr. Connie's comments:)

As n oted in Musings, chemosensitivity, radiofrequency sensitivity, Lyme Disease, and other multisystemic chronic conditions all have in common oxidative stress and the formation of free radicals in the body. Oxidative stress leads to mitochondrial damage, cancer, Alzheimers, Type 2 diabetes, aging and more. 
Nutrients such as C, E and alpha lipoic acid are powerful antioxidants, but are destabilized after fulfilling their antioxidant functions. Glutathione restabilizes these nutrients. Glutathione is the body's master antioxidant. It is protective of immune cells, aids detoxification in the liver, slows aging, allows the body to rebuild and repair.  
For these and other reasons, we offer Glutathione I.V.s in our office, often after a after Myer's Cocktail but also by itself. Patients report increased sensory awareness and feeling refreshed after a glutathione IV.

Intravenous Glutathione is our most powerful way to introduce glutathione into the body, though we do also use oral liposomal glutathione (available in our office), and oral N Acetyl Cysteine (NAC),  which is a precursor to glutathione.  


Please phone 650-961-1660 for more information.


Ionic Detoxification  Foot Baths in Our Office!

For years we resisted this form of therapy thinking it too woo-woo for our patients.  Then the manufacturer showed us before and after heavy metal testing results performed on foot bath patients.  We were impressed!

Dr. Connie experiences ionic foot bath at a conference

How long are the sessions?  

Sessions last 30 to 45 minutes. Patients can just sit and relax, read or doze during the session.
What will a person experience?

Nothing except a warm water foot soak during treatment.  Afterward, people may experience a pleasant tingling sensation in the feet. Most people also experience a deep relaxation effect and for some, better sleep.  Often people experience more energy and alertness and a clearing of brain fog.
How often should a person receive treatment?

Any detoxification program has a cumulative effect with repeated treatments.  However, each individual session provides benefits. We offer discount packages for people who desire sustained positive effects. Ideally, people should receive three treatments a week separated by one or two days.
What times are available for treatment?

Any time the office is open.
How much do treatments cost?

Single Session:            $50
6 Session Package:      $255 ($42.50 per treatment, a 15% discount)
12 Session Package:    $480 ($40 per treatment, a 20% discount)
* Package purchases must be paid at the time of scheduling.

Breast Thermography at
Pacific Naturopathic
- breast health evaluation and safety -

More and more women object to the requisite annual mammogram due to inaccuracy in assessing dense breast tissue, due to the pain caused to sensitive breasts, and due to the repeated exposure to radiation. 

Breast thermography offers a safe and painless alternative screening method, using a camera which detects temperature and vascular variations that represent physiologic changes which represent a change in breast health. When a  mammogram, ultrasound, or MRI is required for additional information, they can be used when necessary, rather than in repetitive standard screening.

Breast thermography is offered on most Wednesdays at Pacific Naturopathic.

Wandering the PNRC property early October, we gathered abundant citrus (lemons, Myer lemons, key limes, tangerines, grapefruit), avocadoes, apples, and starfruit galore. We literally imbibed the healing frequencies of the many hues of green, the blue of the sky and of the ocean. We walked barefoot, grounding ourselves to earth vibrations. And we enjoyed breathing in the deeply oxygenated air. 

Hawaii truly offers an antidote to and respite from the pervasive EMFs encountered in our day to day Silicon Valley life!

What We Offer  at the  Hernandez Center 
for Adjunctive Cancer Care

There is light in the darkness

Our cancer patients often ask us to give them an estimate of the effectiveness of therapy at the Hernandez Center for Adjunctive Cancer Care. We respond that  our entire focus is on helping our patients stay healthy, upbeat and positive. 

The truth is that the botanical and nutritional therapies we offer (including  intravenous vitamin C), although 'adjunctive' in nature, have powerful documented actions in decreasing inflammation, reducing tumor load and attacking cancer stem cells. 

  Our mind/body approaches are focused on transformation of experience.  And our bodywork approaches help reduce muscular pain, resolve lymph drainage problems and relieve stress. 
  The hope we offer is not that of a miraculous cure, 
although we are definitely open to miracles, 
but the hope of a life lived to the fullest in dignity 
and understanding, for however long that may be.

Health risks linked to 
electromagnetic field exposure

By  Kaiser Permanente

A study of real-world exposure to non-ionizing radiation from magnetic fields in pregnant women found a significantly higher rate of miscarriage, providing new evidence regarding their potential health risks. The Kaiser Permanente study was published in December, 2017.

Read full article 


by WHO

The WHO/International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified radiofrequency electromagnetic fields as  possibly carcinogenic to humans (Group 2B) , based on an increased risk for  glioma , a malignant type of brain cancer 1 , associated with wireless phone use.

Cannibalistic cancer cells
eating their own kind

Researchers from the Tulane University School of Medicine have discovered that some cancer cells survive chemotherapy by eating their neighboring tumor cells. The study, which will be published September 17 in the Journal of Cell Biology, suggests that this act of cannibalism provides these cancer cells with the energy they need to stay alive and initiate tumor relapse after the course of treatment is completed.


Other I.V. Therapies Offered at Pacific Naturopathic and the Hernandez Center

--I.V. therapy is not just for cancer patients--

Many people have already heard about intravenous vitamin C as a complementary cancer therapy to help stimulate the immune system as well as being directly cytotoxic to cancer cells. This is the most common therapy we use at the Hernandez Center for our cancer patients. 
But intravenous therapy is not just for cancer patients.   More than half of our IV patients come for various  "cocktails" to help them ward off infections and optimize their health.  We offer a number of individualized versions of the famous "Myers Cocktail." Read about the Myers Cocktail HERE
Other cocktails we offer promote brain health, assist the liver in its detoxification efforts, relieve the symptoms of chronic fatigue, help reduce stress, bring rapid relief from sinusitis, colds and flus, address immune system disorders, slow the progression of macular degeneration, reduce chronic pain and fibromyalgia and many other conditions.
