Inflammatory detriment and obesity comes mainly from all toxic food elements

Inflammatory detriment and obesity: Interleukin-6 

When addressing the problems that are associated with obesity, it is worth noting that, Interleukin-6 (IL-6) is possibly another factor associated with inflammatory detriment within the portal system. In her decades of practicing, doctor Dalal Akoury MD President and founder of AWAREmed health and wellness resource center reiterates that high levels of IL-6 are a marker for inflammation and vascular pathology. Obese subjects demonstrated a 50% greater portal vein IL-6 concentration, demonstrating, again, the profound effect visceral fat has on pathogenic indicators. Portal vein IL-6 correlates with systemic C-reactive protein concentrations.

C-reactive protein is associated with cardio- and peripheral vascular disease. C-reactive protein and oxidative stress are now presumed to interact in the early inflammatory processes of atherosclerosis. This is significant for young obese individuals. Although more research is necessary for conclusive association, C-reactive protein may be a new risk factor for CAD in individuals under 25 years of age.

Inflammatory detriment and obesity: Inflammation imbalances

The imbalance between increased inflammatory stimuli with a concurrent reduction in anti-inflammatory activity may be the foundation for the accelerated endothelial dysfunction and insulin resistance associated with obesity and the comorbid disorders of metabolic disease. More research is needed to clearly delineate the particular relationships, but it seems evident that the low grade inflammation caused by obesity and visceral adiposity lead to the premature development of disease. This, more so than ever before, identifies the importance of weight management during the developmental years and ongoing efforts to control weight throughout one’s lifespan.

Nonetheless, this must not be seen to have shut the doors for individuals who are obese currently. The good news is that, there is still hope of recovery. This is because weight loss is related to reduction of oxidative stress and inflammation, and these beneficial effects are likely to translate into reduction of cardiovascular risk in obese individuals. Likewise, exercise and dietary management, along with pharmacologic intervention can lead to atherosclerotic reversal in the earlier stages of CAD. Individuals with central adiposity, poor blood lipid profiles, and hypertension or insulin resistance should seek immediate professional assistance to prevent further health detriment.

Finally, in view of professionalism in addressing this problem, it will interest you to note that, because of the passion of helping and eliminating addiction and weight related complications, doctor Akoury founded this facility, primarily to help in transforming each individual’s life through increasing awareness about health and wellness and by empowering individuals to find their own inner healing power. Besides that, it is also important to appreciate that, Akoury’s practice focuses on personalized medicine through healthy lifestyle choices that deal with primary prevention and underlying causes instead of patching up symptoms making her the best for all your treatment needs. You may now want to schedule an appointment with doctor Akoury on telephone number 843 213 1480 for the commencement of your treatment process professionally.

choose Life Breast Cancer

I Choose Life Breast Cancer

I choose Life Breast Cancer, I choose life over Breast Cancer everyday.  Choose Life Breast Cancer; I have made a decision and that is to choose life over breast cancer.  That was not an easy decision. When I first started my breast cancer journey, I never thought anything but cancer would be in my future. I was consumed with the fear of not getting through this ordeal and did not feel well. I have autoimmune issues of Hashimoto disease, chronic lyme disease, and chronic osteomyelitis of the upper jaw. I felt so sick and defeated at first. Dr. Akoury and my husband kept telling me to trust God and let go of the fear and anxiety. I could not see our from under it  It actually would frustrate me to keep hearing from Dr. Akoury that you learn to live with the cancer and tame it.

Choose Life Breast Cancer, Changing how I think in this breast cancer journey

Dr. Akoury believes and tells me…..It is your friend that allowed you to know something was really off balance in your body and you now have the gift to change your life. It has awakened you. I did not embrace those truths at all at first. Something changed. I am not sure when but it was after a month or so of treatment. Well, I have to be honest at about my stubbornness as it was about the second month of treatment that I started to embrace those truths.  As I pour over God’s truth, he allows me to see the different reality that I am truly walking. I have a choice. I can embrace and hold on to the trauma of breast cancer or I can take this opportunity to embrace the life that he has given me. I CHOOSE LIFE BREAST CANCER! I choose to look at it as an awakening of my life. I have a purpose. I have a journey. I have a family that I love. I have a husband that I want to spend time with and enjoy. I have a newfound family and help in Dr. Akoury and Awaremed and her wonderful staff. I may have days I don’t feel 100 percent and days I am tired of supplements and strict diet and cancer treatments. But I know the plans I have for you says the Lord, plans to prosper and plans for a hope and a future. I choose life and the awesome gift of it.

I choose life over breast cancer.

When I embraced that something changed. I wake up with a song in my heart. I find myself singing. I smile again. I love myself and people again, I feel joy again. I now smile when Dr. Akoury tells me to smile and love life. I get it now….. Breast cancer, or for that matter, any cancer is not a death sentence. It is a chance to find your life and reinvest in it. Of course life will never be the same. I am now convinced that I do not want it ever to go back to the place where I was at. My attitude can help keep cancer at bay. My diet, treatments. and lifestyle are all huge, but I am the driver of this ride. I choose life over breast cancer and always will.

The mission with Dr. Akoury and other cancer patients

I want to help Dr. Akoury with her mission and life passions to help people. I want to learn for myself and others how to keep on this path of healing. Life is good – very very good and God is better! I choose life over breast cancer and with Dr. Akoury I am learning how to complete my journey. I would love to talk to anyone considering this path. I am sure it has been a path of healing and not poisons from full dose chemo and radiation. It has become a discovery of healing with IVs of chelation, detoxing, Poly MVA, amino acids, high dose vitamin C and other healing therapies.  I am so grateful! Thank you, Dr. Akoury for the detoxing IVs and the ozone treatments with the IBV light. and the IPT that helps my low dose chemo tame cancer. Thank you, God for life and leading me on this breast cancer journey to discover life again. Thank you, dear jeff for the commitment to stand by me.  I would be so glad to talk to anyone considering this path of treatment. It is a chance to discover the ability inside your self to heal and become whole again. It is a journey of breast cancer, or so I thought when I started, but now know it is a journey of finding life and purpose. Seina is  the office manager of Awaremed and would gladly give you my phone number to allow me to answer questions about this treatment option.

The Breast Cancer Journey of Sharon Keller with Dr. Akoury

Breast Cancer Journey of Sharon Keller with Dr. Akoury

Breast Cancer Journey of Sharon Keller healing has begun and every day is spent on many IVs to clean the internal environment so that cancer is not welcome anymore.  Once I get things all cleaned out….. Then on to low dose chemo with IPT. That is a great thing. My wonderful husband is such a great support and comes to the clinic everyday with me. That is one of my greatest blessings. Fear still wants to rear its ugly head and Dr. Akoury and the caring staff keeps trying to encourage positive healing thoughts to help my  body. I never realized that the body, mind, and spirit is all part of the healing. I pour over scripture and write scripture on note cards to read “real truth” instead of the lies that my body tells me with symptoms. The truth of the matter is you can feel rough with all of the detox and immune boosting ivs and supplements. It is all good to not feeling well as I know my body is cleaning out all bad things. I am starting to lose weight which is a good thing. I was so inflamed and swollen when I first came to the clinic. Diet plays such a huge part of the healing too. One of the hardest hurdles was the ingesting of all of the supplements. They are all wonderful for you but my stomach stuggled to accept them. I got a tip from another sweet patient that says she uses chocolate coconut milk to make her shakes. That masks the taste and things go down sooo much better now.  Healing is taking place!! Praise God!!

Dr. Akoury gives so freely to her patients as she tries to educate us along the way. She tells us how to heal our guts where so much of our immune system is at… I have learned that the body can heal once it has a clean environment. There is such a necessity for good bacteria to be added to our gut. Ghee can be fermented and added to everything. This picture of us was when I had an appointment with the surgeon to see when I should have the breast lumectomy. What doctor goes with you?  Dr. Akoury does and to say she gives her heart to her patients is an understatement. I came into treatment so scared and so many times would get worried and would be able to regain a confidence in my healing after a phone call or a time spent with Dr. Akoury. I would never have gotten this kind of treatment with conventional treatment. I can not imagine being in full dose chemo and what it can do to me…. missing my home but I am so grateful for this treatment plan. I have grown in my faith, confidence, and health. To God be the Glory!!!I have autoimmune diseases that complicates things but am healing!

I would be glad to talk to anyone considering integrative oncology as a cancer treatment plan. Call Awaremed and talk with Seina and she can give you my phone number.



Breast Cancer Treatment: Sharon Keller’s Journey

Breast Cancer Treatment At Awaremed with Dr. Dalal Akoury

One of the first days of treatment.

Sharon Keller’s Journey with Breast Cancer Treatment under Dr. Dalal Akoury Care

We traveled from Pittsburgh Pa to Myrtle Beach for my breast cancer treatment once my husband and I decided this was the best place for me. This was based on the amount of treatment options available and environment for this healing journey.   Dr. Akoury firmly believes in positive thinking, and a beautiful and calm environment for my breast cancer treatment. Each treatment room has beautiful decor with the smell of essential oils to enhance the senses and create an environment of healing.  My  journey began with a contacting phone to Awaremed and Seina, the office manager, answering a lot of questions about the treatment plans. In my case, Dr Akoury called me and talked to me from the airport to introduce herself and connect with me. She is warm and caring and like no other doctor I have ever known. You become family. In a time of sickness and fear, and  pain and concern, and being far from home,you are welcomed into the practice with open arms, smiles, and positive encouragement. Thus the breast cancer treatment and journey has begun. Fear tries to grip my heart and there is no place for it. Smiles, walks on the beach in barefeet, soothing music and laughter takes its place along with much prayer.

Managing panic attacks in cancer patients

Managing panic attacks

Managing panic attacks in cancer patients require professionalism and care

Managing panic attacks in cancer patients: This attack can be life threatening

Careful consideration should be taken in managing panic attacks in cancer patients since it can be an alarming symptom of anxiety. According to the experts at AWAREmed Health and Wellness Resource Center under the able leadership of doctor Dalal Akoury MD, panic attacks can happen very suddenly and often reach their worst in just about 10 minutes. The victim may seem fine between the attacks but is usually very afraid that they will happen again. The following are some of the symptoms of panic attack.

Managing panic attacks in cancer patients: Symptoms of panic attack

  • Shortness of breath or a feeling of being smothered
  • Running heart
  • Feelings of dizziness, unstable, lightheaded, or faint
  • Chest pain or discomfort
  • Feeling as if they’re choking
  • Quivering or trembling
  • Sweating
  • Fear of losing control or “going crazy”
  • An urge to escape
  • Impassiveness or tingling sensations
  • Feeling “unreal” or “detached” from themselves
  • Chills (shaking or shivering) or hot flashes (may involve sweating or facial reddening)

If a person is having any of the first 5 symptoms or any five for that matter, it can mean an urgent or life-threatening condition. In this case the presence of a doctor would be required right away to attend to the patient if someone unexpectedly has any of these. It is also very important to note that these symptoms can be signs of other, more serious problems such as shock, heart attack, blood chemistry imbalance, collapsed lung, allergic reaction and many other chronic conditions. Therefore it’s not safe to make an assumption that they are panic-related until are diagnosed and confirmed by a doctor.

Managing panic attacks in cancer patients: What to do

  • Check with the doctor to be sure that the symptoms are caused by panic and not another medical problem.
  • Stay calm and speak softly during a panic attack.
  • Sit with the person during panic attacks until he or she is feeling better.
  • Call for help if needed.
  • After the panic attack is over, encourage the person to get treatment for the panic attacks.
  • Provide transportation to treatment if needed. The person may be afraid that a panic attack will happen while driving.
  • The ideas listed under “What to do” in the section “Anxiety and Fear” may also be helpful.

Managing panic attacks in cancer patients: Do not

  • Minimize or make light of the person’s terror or fear.
  • Judge the person for feeling scared and acting strangely.
  • Try to talk the person out of their fear or other feelings.
  • Hesitate to call the doctor if you have questions about what’s happening.

Finally for us to win the good health back, we must ensure that we change our attitude towards anxiety and fear more so when it comes to handling cancer patients. Everything we do will matter a lot in the healing process of the cancer patients. Therefore seeking for treatment in good time and from experience and qualified doctors will be the best you can do for yourself. Doctor Dalal Akoury is one of such professionals you can contact for any health conditions you have that is cancerous. Make the best decision today and schedule for an appointment with doctor Akoury for a life changing treatment that will give you your life back enjoying it to the fullest.
