November is the start of the holiday season and family events are the focus for the next couple of months, as the weather cools off and we begin to nest for the winter. However, there is still plenty to do in Central Virginia. Lake Anna is gorgeous and we still have some great boating days left in 2014. Festivals abound throughout the state and holiday presentations are just around the corner. Fall is a great time of year to enjoy the outdoors; get out there and DO IT!

COUNT YOUR MANY BLESSINGS
The celebration of Thanksgiving Day for many in America is rooted in their faith tradition. However, Thanksgiving Day is most certainly not reserved for any one segment of the population; and, given its origin, it is distinctively American born and bred. Whether the origin of the first Thanksgiving was the Commonwealth of Massachusetts or the Commonwealth of Virginia (I cast my vote for the Old Dominion State), all in America are called upon to observe the fourth Thursday in November as a day to offer up thanks and celebrate the blessings of the year, especially the bountiful harvest we enjoy.

A BOOK REVIEW OF RADICAL REMISSION
Kelly Turner, working as a counselor to cancer patients in a large cancer research hospital in San Francisco, was reading Dr. Andrew Weil’s book, Spontaneous Healing and came across a case of remission of advanced cancer without the use of conventional medicine. Intrigued by that, she tried to find other cases of what she called Radical Remission and was shocked to find more than 1000 cases published in medical journals, all of which received no attention at the cancer center where she worked. The more she searched, the more frustrated she became because no one was seriously investigating these cases or even trying to track them. Most of the cancer survivors she interviewed said their doctors showed no interest in hearing about what they had done to get better. Most outrageous was that some of the doctors actually asked the survivors not to tell any of the other patients in the waiting room about their recoveries, so as not to give them “false hope.”
Turner decided to go for a Ph.D. to explore this phenomenon. She chose twenty people for her dissertation, but since her Ph.D. degree, she has conducted over 100 interviews and has analyzed over 1000 cases of Radical Remission. The doctors reporting the cases carefully listed all the biochemical changes experienced by the patients, but none of the authors reported directly asking the survivors why they thought they had healed. The patients also sought out a variety of alternative healers all over the globe, but the research ignored these healers, and no one had studied how these healers treat cancer. Dr. Turner spent 10 months traveling all over the world in 10 countries, interviewing 50 alternative healers. [READ MORE]
