The Hernandez Center 
for Adjunctive Cancer Care


Let's start this month by reviewing the changes at Pacific Naturopathic:

New location: Please note that since Tuesday, May 28th, we have been operating out of our new clinic,  1580 W. El Camino Real, Suite 7 (ground floor back corner), in Mountain View, at the corner of Mariposa Avenue and El Camino.
Parking options include handicapped parking, guest parking, side street parking, electric vehicle parking and (if all else fails), parking at the shopping complex across the street and down the block. 

Very important when you are trying to find us:  The building management has not yet put our office name on the monument signs!  But the address is visible on the monuments.
We also have new phone and fax numbers:  650-961-1660 (voice) and  650-961-1665 (fax).

* Saturday IV Therapy hours 8:00AM to noon (see promo in next section for details).

* Telemedicine Are you tired of traffic congestion and unpredictable commute times? Do you have friends and family in areas not serviced by naturopathic doctors, and needing complementary and alternative medical opinions?  Consider the options of having phone visits on our dedicated phone lines, or FaceTime visits.  Schedule with the front desk, as you would schedule any appointment.
Because we own a vacation rental on the Big Island of Hawaii where Kilauea volcano is erupting, this month's newsletter has several fire-related articles and continues the theme of change.

Dr. Connie begins by discussing the creative opportunities of fire; Dr. Marcel offers his thoughts on successful navigation through changes; Dr. Connie returns with insights on inflammation (fire) in the body; and Jane H. writes of her experiences with EFT.  You'll also find information on CBD oil balm (it really works!), the transformative powers of glutathione, a recipe for chocolate hemp kale chips and a volcano update.

The  Hernandez Center for Adjunctive cancer care articles include the relationship between diet and cancer, information on hemp, cannabis and cancer and a presentation of 200 alternative cancer therapies (some valid and others questionable).

Finally, we have long known that an acupuncturist in our office would offer a perfect complement to the services we provide.  So we are delighted to introduce our new associate, Anandini Wadera.  She is a perfect fit for our practice with her emphasis on adjunctive cancer care, women's health and eye-related disorders.  You can find her self-introduction below.

May all beings be healthy and happy!

Introducing New Associate: 
Anandini Wadera, L.Ac.

I am a passionate and dedicated acupuncturist and herbalist, hobby writer and dog lover. 
My introduction to Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture began as child when I was exposed to Ayurveda and homeopathy. I graduated from UCLA in English Literature, Creative Writing and pre-med. I then worked for a time in product design for a Silicon Valley health tech company, only to find myself drawn back to my childhood calling of holistic healing. I then studied at Five Branches University in San Jose/Santa Cruz, CA for my MSTCM.
Having struggled myself with thyroid disorders and hormone balance, women's health and fertility felt like a natural specialty. I followed Five Branches professors who specialize in menopause management, hormone balance, fertility (IVF and IUI), uterine fibroids and other gynecological complaints. Outside of the university, Mia Blomquist fostered this passion and training at Boho Family Wellness, where I furthered my work with the emotional aspects of disease. I strive to treat people holistically to achieve optimal health and emotional balance.
When first one person near and dear to me was diagnosed with cancer, and then another, I wanted to further my role in their healing processes. I underwent training in chemotherapy support, and recently began volunteering my acupuncture services at the Charlotte Maxwell Center in Oakland. The Charlotte Maxwell Center serves underprivileged and low-income women with cancer. A community of volunteer practitioners help patients suffering side effects of chemotherapy and radiation and provide emotional and lifestyle support. The acupuncture helps their immune systems and helps keep spirits high while minimizing the side effects of therapies used to treat the disease.
Another specialty I have is eye care. My grandmother inspired me to pursue a certificate from John Boel in Copenhagen, Denmark to care for degenerative eye diseases and low-vision disorders. I am pleased to have helped return some vision to my grandmother's right eye. I have completed training and certifications in low vision disorders with Andy Rosenfarb, ND, L. Ac to further my understanding and care in AMD, Diabetic Retinopathy and dry eye syndrome.
On the personal side, I spend all my spare time planning my next travel adventure, hoping to discover something new about a place, a culture and myself. If I could pack up my two dogs (I have two Havanese), they would accompany me to every country and city. 
When I can, I chip away at an ongoing writing project and read to keep myself inspired. 
I feel blessed to have been taken under so many people's wings, and I wish to be the very best I can be for you.

Dr. Connie's Musings...
Dr. Connie poses in front of active lava flow on Hawaii's Big Island

The Creative Opportunity of Fire

Many people are aware of theories and therapies, in both Eastern and Western medicine, which reference the qualities and relationships of the elements of earth, air, water, fire and ether.  In Ayurvedic medicine, the three bodily elements (doshas) which characterize a person's physical and emotional constitution are Pitta (fire), Kapha (earth), and Vata (air). Lifestyle and dietary changes are recommended, and Ayurvedic medicines are formulated to balance these doshas. 
In the past, our Pacific Naturopathic newsletter has featured articles on each one of these elements, with the exception of the element of fire. In the light of both the onset of the fiery hot summer season, and of the current extraordinary earth changes, I thought to focus this month on fire.  
A road in Leilani Estates became a lava highway
From the fires which decimated thousands of homes and businesses and charred acres upon acres of land in Santa Rosa this past fall, to the annual forest fires which rage in the summer season throughout the western United States, to the fiery lava which currently is swallowing up whole communities on the Big Island of Hawaii, and the volcanic destruction underway now in Guatamala, this element is much on people's minds. (Please see the Retreat Center article below and know that Pacific Naturopathic Retreat Center has not been affected in any way by the volcanic eruption.)
The destructive nature of fire is one side of the coin. There is, as always, another side to the coin. As lava meets the ocean, new land is created. Though initially wildlife perishes in fire, vegetation goes up in smoke, and soils erode, the aftermath is a different story. Ecosystems are maintained through germination of heat sensitive seeds and the renewed growth of low lying grasses and flowers. Surviving wildlife are nourished on the growth, fostering new life and new possibilities.  
The inherent renewal following the destruction of fire is sanctified in ritual. Fire ceremonies welcome rebirth and new beginnings by symbolically burning those aspects of our lives and our actions that no longer serve or define us.  Without the outward trappings, we are thrown back into the essential nature of our beings.
Imagine, if you will, standing in the midst of the desolation, surrounded by lava fields or
The destruction of the community 
of Kapoho on the Big Island
ash, gazing on a barren landscape that only days before was your lush and lovely home.  There is profound grief at the loss, wonder at the awesome force of nature, uncertainty as to what the future holds. 
Destruction by fire disallows any complacent clinging to the known norm of your life, both rattles and burns the cages that contain you, and can ultimately set you free.  The destruction is a painful, yet liberating reminder that you are not defined by material manifestation. You are, in Yogananda's words, the You that  "must stand unshaken amidst the crash of breaking worlds."
The outward world is thought by great masters to be a reflection of our inner worlds. Anger is a fiery emotion, and anger predominates the world scene today. Could it be that calming our emotional fires on an individual and collective basis might calm both these outward manifestations, and the physical manifestations of inner fire as well? See below for thoughts on fire in the body.

Navigating Through Changes


One of the primary qualities that differentiate humans from other species is our ability to adapt to multiple external situations.  If it is cold, we build a heated home and put on warmer clothes.  If it is warm, we turn on the AC or dive into a pool.  Since external situations are by their nature always in a state of flux, adaptation is a survival mechanism.  In extreme cases, we are called upon to adapt to change or perish.

In the past two months, Dr. Connie and I have been presented with a number of opportunities to adapt.  We've written of how we have had to vacate our apartment while black mold was eliminated (we are still camping out).  We've talked about our car dying and having to purchase another vehicle. And in the midst of adapting to these and other unforeseen circumstances, we moved our office to a new location.  How has our adaptation gone?  

As we age, we tend to resist change.  We observe the body changing through the years and the thought arises of, "Whoa! Slow down!  I'm not done yet!"  This is when people tend to drag their heels in resistance, even nailing their figurative feet to the floor.  Changes become challenging and the desire to change vanishes.  Just like Popeye who said, "I yam what I yam," thus canceling his growth process.

Yes, these bodies will soon pass into history. But in the present moment, the inevitable outcome of resisting change is a stoppage of growth and expansion.  It is the beginning of true death.

For Dr. Connie and I, adapting to change has become a conscious way of life.  We have observed that changes in our external environment require a creative response that also energizes and makes us seek adaptation in our inner worlds as well. The more we internalize our outer experiences, the deeper we grow in understanding the true nature of creation. It is a lifelong process that never ends.  It is a process that makes us feel vibrant and truly alive.  Eventually, we reach a place of understanding and peace that is the only constant in all of creation.

There is something greater than our own limited reality at play in the flux and flow of life.  We can't  exactly put our finger on it or give it a tangible definition, but we can feel, experience it and we know that it is true.   As we search for deeper connection and understanding, the flotsam and jetsam swirling around us begins to lose its ability to have a major impact on our lives and calmness ensues.

Much like the ancient mariners who navigated the oceans by observing the positions of the stars, the only way of navigating through the illusions and challenges of earthly existence is by maintaining a consistent upward focus.  This is the only path to successful adaptation and true happiness.

Fire in the Body

Connie Hernandez, N.D.
As in the environment, fire in the body has both positive and negative consequences. Fever is a prime example. 

Whereas many people believe that it is necessary to quell a fever (and very high temperatures can indeed be dangerous and must be addressed), high bodily temperatures are anti microbial. A child with a robust immune system may spike a high temperature and burn out an illness in a day, while the more compromised parent may suffer a minor elevation in temperature and feel unwell for days.  

At Bastyr University, we would routinely offer fever treatments to immunocompromised patients and those on the verge of illness, monitoring the patients in hot water baths while applying cooling applications to the neck and forehead. Infrared saunas serve a similar purpose, stoking the immune system and burning out the virus before it has a chance to take hold of the body.
The element of fire may be present in areas of localized inflammation, which become red, swollen and hot in reaction to injury or infection. The inflammatory response is a defense mechanism of the body as it attempts to increase blood supply and white blood cell response in order to protect and heal. Without this response, there would be no healing.  Thus, treatments like bee venom therapy and cayenne pepper patches are used to promote an inflammatory response and initiate healing. Topical treatments can quell excess inflammation and regulate healing. We often use oral homeopathics and homeopathic creams based on Arnica (such as T-Relief and Inflamyar) One of the very best topical applications that we've found for painful joints is a high potency CBD salve. (Scroll down to see: "Recommended by Drs. Connie and  Marcel." 
If inflammation becomes chronic or rages out of control, we see rampant tissue destruction, and the development of conditions such as cancer and autoimmunity. Inflammation in the blood vessels (rather than that scapegoat cholesterol) is the root source of cardiovascular disease. Generalized inflammation in body tissues creates all manner of aches and pains. Simply suppressing the reactivity generally does not do the trick. The best anti inflammatory treatments quell the fire, remove cellular debris, and restore tissue integrity. Curcumin has proven to be one of the most effective anti inflammatory and anti carcinogenic treatments, while high potency enzymes between meals reduce pain and gobble up debris. Mucilagenous herbs like slippery elm and marshmallow root, and deglycyrrhizinated licorice soothe and heal damaged gastrointestinal tissues. Resveretrol restores integrity to the lining of blood vessels.
In the body, the element of fire resides in the solar plexus, stoking digestion and powering up vitality. The energy center correlated with the solar plexus regulates pancreatic function, balances blood sugar and aspects of blood pressure and circulation. Too little digestive fire, and digestion is stagnant. The result of too much fire may be upper and lower gastrointestinal burning and tissue destruction.  
Joy and power are aspects of being associated with the solar plexus and the element of fire. The color yellow, homeopathics and flower essences, affirmations and lifestyle change can all increase your power, enhance your joy, and calm over active processes when indicated.

I.V. Glutathione Benefits for Optimal Health


Glutathione benefits include living longer, living better, better sports performance, slow aging and increased energy. Glutathione (GSH) is made naturally by our bodies. It is our body's master antioxidant and detoxifier.   GSH deficiency is linked to about 70 diseases including cancer, heart disease, stroke and many others.
Here are the benefits of having increased levels of glutathione in our bodies:
1. GSH is the body's master antioxidant and detoxifier. Vitamins like vitamin C, vitamin E and alpha lipoic acid become unstable after they have neutralized free radicals. GSH re-stabilizes the vitamins, allowing them to do their job again and again. Deficiency of GSH makes other antioxidants ineffective in fighting free radicals.
2. GSH is anti-inflammatory.  GSH rids the body of  free radicals, preventing cellular inflammation which leads to many diseases. GSH is the body's fire extinguisher.
3. GSH is abundant in the liver. The liver is the main organ of detoxification, ridding the body of waste materials.  GSH also removes drug poisons, environmental toxins and heavy metals from the body.
4. GSH transports proteins and nutrients into the cells.  Even with a good diet, lack of GSH may lead to malnutrition.
5. GSH protects the immune cells from oxidative stress, allowing immune cells to neutralize viruses and bacteria.
6. GSH is needed for energy production. GSH protects energy-producing cells from oxidative damage.
7. GSH never becomes a free radical. GSH constantly recycles itself in order to neutralize free radicals and support other antioxidants.
8. GSH slows down aging. Studies indicate that higher GSH levels are protective against age-related diseases. 
9. GSH protects your eyes from ultraviolet (UV) light. It can  help prevent macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic eye disease. 
10. GSH improves the condition of skin, hair and nails.  GSH improves skin health by helping keep it moist, supple and inflammation free. It also stabilizes collagen, helping to prevent premature aging.
11. GSH induces delta wave sleep. When GSH is oxidized, two oxidized GSH molecules come together to form GSSG, Glutathione disulfide. GSSG creates deep and restful sleep, allowing the body to fully repair and rejuvenate itself.
12. GSH supports peak athletic performance and accelerates muscle recovery. Athletes may experience better endurance and  faster recovery. 
Intravenous glutathione therapy is  available  in our office.  
A simple GSH push takes about 10 minutes. Combined with a Myers Cocktail, 
glutathione is restorative and powerfully anti-aging.

You Heard it Here First...

Jane 2013

Or maybe you didn't. But I bet most of you haven't heard of Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) outside of this column. However, things are changing rapidly and soon it will be offered in more hospitals and by more practitioners. Why, because evidence-based research is showinghow it works and people all over the world are experiencing that it works. 
Basically EFT (aka Tapping) is done by simply tapping on 9 acupuncture meridian points on your head and trunk while you think or say what is disturbing you. Sounds simple? It is, while also being incredibly effective.
It's an exciting time for EFT. Although the technique has been around almost 30 years now, there's more and more research that explains just why it's so effective. And this is important not just to justify why we are doing it, but also for those who are doubtful. 
Personally, I use it for many things but my biggest personal breakthrough came with solving the problem of my insomnia. After a lifetime of tossing and turning I am now in charge of when I want to sleep and have joined the envied ranks of easy sleepers.
I teach EFT to all my clients in the first session and review it in subsequent sessions. Recently I saw someone for stop- smoking who was 62 years old and had smoked most of his life. I thought it would take 2 to 5 sessions to end the habit but after one EFT session he has been sending me texts about how the desire to smoke just evaporated. Not only that, he is seeing the world through fresh new eyes.
So what does EFT do?
To put it simply, EFT calms you down.  When we experience fight or flight our body initiates the stress response and that signals the immediate increased production of the stress hormones cortisol and adrenalin. This prepares the body to run so it can survive against some external threat. This system is all part of our primitive brain and it's meant to protect us. Unfortunately, in modern life it happens all too often and the onslaught of those hormones wears us down. EFT regulates the stress response in the primitive brain and the calming effect is felt within minutes.
Until now, EFT has been overlooked and dismissed by many in modern Western medicine. To them, it's simply too good to be true. But the truth of it is being demonstrated more and more. For example, war veterans suffering with PTSD have been taught EFT and averaged 63% decrease in symptoms after 6 rounds of EFT tapping. Amazing? Yes, and I am writing about a tool that everyone can use in daily life. 
To return to the examples I cited previously, I used EFT to calm down the thoughts that always seemed to go round and round in my head when trying to sleep. Now I don't even need to use EFT for sleep because I am a natural sleeper. My client who was a smoker cleared the necessity of needing the distraction and habit of smoking and now is a non-smoker. There are many, many more examples of people around the world who have used EFT to change their lives.
Imagine having a tool that is always with you and can help you deal with any situation that you come up against. Oh, and did I mention that the stress hormone cortisol is responsible for belly fat? EFT reduces cortisol levels - you do the math.
I am happy to explain more about EFT tapping and hypnotherapy. Please don't hesitate call for a complimentary consultation or to answer any questions.

Breast Thermography at
Pacific Naturopathic
- about thermal risk ratings -


Thermal risk ratings on breast thermography reports assess temperature differentials between the breasts. 

An increased temperature reflects an upregulation of enzymatic and/or immune response. The thermographic reading tells us that there is such a response, but can not tell us to what the body is responding.  The body could be responding to acute injury or to infection. The response could be an inflammatory response to a local or to a distant issue. It could reflect the development of abnormal cellular growth. 

Follow up with your health practitioner can help you determine and treat the cause, and can guide you to treatment or further evaluation when necessary.

Imagine yourself here:  Dr. Connie waits patiently for whales to breech 
Finding yourself in need of a quiet space in which you might restore your outer self through communion with nature, and re-experience the peace and calmness of your deep inner Self? 

In light of the eruption of Kilauea Volcano, and the ongoing news reports and videos re the catastrophic fires and lava flows, acid rains and vog on the Big Island, many of our patients have expressed concern re our Pacific Naturopathic Retreat Center. 

We thank all of you for your concern, and want to assure you that we are not adversely affected in the ways you might imagine. We are shocked and saddened at the overnight destruction of Kapoho, one of the most beautiful and serene areas in the world. Our hearts go out to the many who have lost their homes and their livelihoods. However, our area of the island is far from the devastated area. A friend in Honokaa has written a blog clarifying the areas of the island affected, and assuring all that life goes on on much of the island and in Honokaa. The air is pure as the trade winds seldom send the vog to our area of the island. Click HERE  for Dianne's very informative blog.
So, if your desire is an island vacation, check out our calendar and journey on over!

Check our RETREAT CALENDAR  and see if there is an opening that works for you.

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.

Can your diet 'cure' cancer?

Everyone knows diet and health are related. What you eat can have an impact on everything from your heart to your waistline. But can your culinary choices potentially prevent or even cure cancer?

The Forbidden Herb: 
Healing with Hemp and Cannabis

By Ty Bollinger

Depending on who you talk to, it's either a dangerous weed rightfully blacklisted by the government as a societal vice - or it's one of the most functionally versatile yet completely misunderstood plants ever to grace God's green earth. I'm referring to the cannabis plant, the "forbidden herb" that's rapidly earning itself a fresh reputation as nature's healing alternative to everything from polluting fossil fuels to dangerous pharmaceuticals.

Over 200 Alternative Cancer Treatments

Cancer Tutor

Here's an extensive list for anyone interested in learning about alternative cancer treatments. Cancer Tutor has done a great job of putting a reference to demonstrate the massive amount of scientific evidence for the use of natural substances in cancer treatments.
