This might be the ultimate do-it-yourself project: Doctors are testing a device that would let women do part of their own breast reconstruction at home.

It’s aimed at not only making treatment more comfortable and convenient, but also giving women a sense of control—something cancer often takes away.

More than 100,000 women each year in the United States have surgery to remove a cancerous breast, and many of them choose reconstruction with an implant. To make room for a permanent one, many of them get a tissue expander, a temporary pouch that is gradually enlarged with saline to stretch the remaining skin and muscle. This means trips to the doctor every week or two for several months for injections of saline into the pouch, which can be a painful ordeal.

“We would put as much saline as we could until basically the patient would say, ‘I can’t stand it anymore,'” said Dr. Daniel Jacobs, a Kaiser Permanente plastic surgeon in San Jose, California.

While biking home one day, Jacobs had an idea: Why couldn’t a tiny can of compressed gas, like the one he carries to fix a flat tire, be used to let women inflate their own tissue expanders, a little each day so there is less stretching at a time and less pain?

He helped found a company—AirXpanders Inc. of Palo Alto, California—to develop the device, called AeroForm. It’s sold in Australia, approved in Europe and under review by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Its use requires no special training, wires or tubes—just a palm-sized remote control that activates a tiny cartridge inside the pouch to pump gas, up to three times a day according to how the woman feels.

In a company-sponsored study of 150 women, AeroForm patients finished tissue expansion in half the time and were able to get implants a month sooner than others who had the usual saline treatments, said the study leader, Dr. Jeffrey Ascherman, a plastic surgeon at New York-Presbyterian/Columbia Medical Center in New York.

“My patients love it,” he said. When some women who agreed to be in the study learned they had been assigned to get the saline device for comparison, “I had one who started crying, and other women said, ‘please Dr. Ascherman, can’t you change it?'” he said.

There was no difference in rates of side-effects such as infections, but seven of the air expanders malfunctioned versus only one saline one, Ascherman said. The device was tweaked to fix the problem, he said.

“It’s a really interesting concept,” said one outside expert, Dr. Deanna Attai, a University of California, Los Angeles, surgeon who is a past president of the American Society of Breast Surgeons.

“Giving the patient a sense of control is very psychologically important,” because many women feel robbed of that, Attai said. “To a patient that’s going through cancer treatment that could be a big deal.”

Dr. Susan E. Downey, a Los Angeles plastic surgeon who used the AeroForm on two patients in the study, said: “I think it will make life easier for a lot of people.”

It did for 35-year-old Luincys Fernandez, a high school chemistry teacher who lives in Bogota, New Jersey, and teaches in New York. She was diagnosed with breast cancer a year ago, when pregnant with her second son, and used the AeroForm as part of the study.

“I really, really liked it,” she said. She carried the remote control in her purse and completed the tissue expansion in just 18 days.

“It did not interrupt any of my daily activities. I could go back to normal. I could see the results right away and I could see where I wanted it to go” in terms of size and appearance, she said.

The device comes in three sizes. Women can choose the amount of inflation up to a point, limited by how much tissue is left and how far the device can expand. Once fully expanded, the device is removed and replaced with a breast implant.

In Australia, AeroForm costs more than saline expanders but requires fewer office visits, so costs are not directly comparable. In the U.S., tissue expansion generally is reimbursed at a flat rate that is part of breast reconstruction, and AeroForm’s impact on this cost—if the device wins FDA approval—is not clear.

GENO62 – A Holistic Alternative for cancer therapy

geno62_leading-image_fp_171116

Currently, 7,719,750,000 people live in this world, of which about 503 million are diabetics, 600 million live with dementia, and about 1 billion are cancer patients in medical treatment.

By 2030, the number of diabetics will increase to 800 million, about 110 million in Europe and more than 14 million in Germany alone.

By 2050, experts expect an increase in the number of patients in medical treatment to 3.5 billion, calculated from the 2015 officially confirmed outpatient treatments numbers of 658 million worldwide between 2014-2015!

Tendency for ALL degenerative diseases is on the rise significantly. Take responsibility for your health into your own hands NOW!

A user asked Prof. Kempe by e-mail how exactly works Geno62. Here is Prof. Kempe:

“An energetically healthy cell produces energy, (+/-) like a battery. A (- / -) or, in the aggressive state A (+ / +) polarized cell draws energy from its environment, depending on importance and purpose; skin, stomach, kidney, chest or bone, for example, between five times and 800 times their own energy requirements. This process can take up to 20 years and cannot be “seen” by healthy cells because the border between “at least 95% healthy cells” and “at most 5% diseased cells” was not nearly reached.

Geno62 “sees” the construction sites, the abnormal polarized cells, in seconds by means of the acoustic information via headphones and ultrasound pads. On the thermal imaging camera, it looks as if a ring, a wall, is formed around the sick cells. In a picture, one can see the core of the disease often as a black or dark to light red point, and around it is a visible black circle – the blockade!

Aggressive means that the small black point becomes larger and larger, since no energy can be drawn off until the cell or the cell cluster collapses! For example:

A woman noticed in her breast a lump, which has grown a little bigger over many years, and goes to the doctor. The doctor diagnoses the lump as a malignant tumor and arranges an operation. The tumor “hears” this and becomes immediately aggressive – the woman dies months later, even though the tumor has been growing up to this stage for years, without causing any health problems!

What happened? Pure acoustic information! A conversation between doctor and patient!

Here, however, the authority of the doctor plays a role, because the woman only “listens” rather than critically question what is going on!

The doctor has recognized and addressed the problem professionally, but had NO possibility to inform the healthy cells which form always the majority of minimum 95%. The doctor said: “Operation” – and the tumor became fearful, that it should be removed and therefore became aggressive – until the five percent negative energy limit was exceeded. Thus, the healthy organism collapsed energetically!

In plain text: A chest cell, if aggressively polarized to (+ / +), pulls up to 800 times of its energetic self-requirements. That is, a 10-gram (or 2cm in diameter) tumor CAN NOT kill a woman, only the energetic depletion caused by him will do the job”.

Use the fabulous Geno62 sound and ultrasound technology to find just in time the sick cells, the energy consumers; when using Geno62, these abnormal cells start to reorganize and re-polarize, to communicate with the healthy cells and immune system and finally will join the pool of healthy cells. You self-healing just began.

Geno62 is the best technology for prevention, maintenance and holistic therapy, does not matter which diseases you may have, the healing process is always the same: save the cellular energy and make sick cells function like a battery; all ancient technology speaks about energy blockages when getting sick, and now we understand what they mean!

Following the brilliance pathway

After listening to Dr. Alan Watkins and his advises about how to train your “everyday brilliance” start by training this kind of breathing:

Inhale in 3-5 seconds and mentally say to your heart : Thanks ! !

Exhale in more than 15 seconds (as longer as better) and mentally say  to your heart : I ……love…… you !

As longer your exhalation duration is as better the heart coherence (HRV); other effects of this kind of breathing are:

  1. pH will be perfectly stabilised in the neutral optimum range and
  2. all blood vessels are perfectly opening, thus blood pressure will be at average 120/70 +/- 5%
  3. chronic diseases are starting to heal
  4. pain is fading up to final relief

Good luck!
