Let me start by saying to all you family and friends out there who find out that your loved one has cancer.... your not alone!!! 45 million new cases of cancer pop up every year. That's right, 45 million, which is a lot of people who don't know what to say to their loved one. The most important thing you can do is mention the situation in some way that feels comfortable for you. You can show interest and concern, you can express encouragement, and/or you can offer support. Sometimes the simplest expressions of concern is the most meaningful. And sometimes just listening is the most helpful thing you can do. Remember the old saying “big ears small mouth” When in doubt, respond to the news from your heart.
Most Smokin' Lyric: "You ignite me and I'll ignite you / And once all the sheets burn, baby / I've got some more bamboo / And when the smoke clears / Lady, still my eyes focus on you / Huff and puff some of my funk stuff / Prove my point that I am the joint"
Clearly, the song lyrics above are talking about pot, or cannibus, the official name for pot (or marijuana). I don't think I need to go into why pot has been so popular over the years, except to say, that people use it to get “high” or a euphoric feeling. An escape from reality. It has been heavily used in the (party) scene. During the 60's and 70's when drugs flooded our country in the “age of Aquarius”, or free love period, people used drugs like children eat candy. From wall street to main street. Being illegal all these years,, our society was so flooded with Pot, it became big business to sell it. Ever wonder what happens to all the pot they take off the streets? I don't mean to indicate any illegal activities on any community, but pot has put many people in jail for a very long time and has been politically controlled and regulated. Before we go into what medical Cannibus is, here are a few reasons a lot of people feel it should be legalized.

Sex is as old as time. In biblical times, God said”be fruitful and multiply”So men in those days took many wives. Although times have changed since then, and we have populated the world, the way sex plays a roll in our lives have not changed.
The human body is on fire during sex. Every nerve ending during sex is alive, the heart beats to the rhythm and the sexual organs react with explosive energy. We react to touch, such as a finger running down our backs, the smell of perfume or a freshly clean body, the sight of our lovers body shapes and curves and how we can please or be pleased by this wonderful Animalistic desire.But when your going through cancer, the last thing on your mind is sex as with most chemotherapy treatment, radiation treatments or cell placement's, you are more likely to get sick yet the lack of energy or sexual intimacy is a
Throughout time, dogs have been used as a status symbol, protection,used in wars specifically in ancient Greece. They have been used by proper ladies to walk her home in the 1700 and 1800's, used as police officers, used as drug dogs,used to hunt,and even in WW1, dogs were trained and used to be messengers. Other uses for dogs over the years, are dogs for the disabled,transportation and hauling by the early settlers, and basically, Mans best friend and house hold family spoiled rotten pet. I could go on and on as to what dogs have been used for, but the one new up and coming trend these champions are being trained for, is to detect cancer in the human body.It all started years ago when a dog
Lyme disease and hair loss
Before I go into Lyme disease and hair loss, I believe it is more important to understand exactly what Lyme is and the fact that there are 200.000 new cases a year , and as you will see below, those are just the cases that test positive through a blood test. There are probably and estimated thousands who have Lyme disease yet test negative .
I was recently diagnosed with advanced chronic Lyme disease and have received quite the education on the subject. The first thing I learned is, that YOU CANNOT COUNT ON JUST THE BLOOD TEST ALONE. The second thing I learned is, that even the CDC admits there is no conclusive test for Lyme and that the current test's we have are not full proof. Someone like me, can test negative for years yet still have it.(see explanation below). It reminds many of the early 80's when AID'S attacked us. Many tested negative yet were actually positive and many who tested poz were getting false positive results. There just isn't a conclusive reliable test for it. I am going to try and simplify this blog the best I can (including my own story), because Lyme is a very complicated disease.
is Lyme disease?
The definition of lyme disease is
SURPRISE...SURPRISE.... SURPRISE...Things about cancer that will surprise everyone
I am entitling this blog surprise because what we think is healthy to our bodies isn't always the case, such as working out regularly.

Did you also know that being over weight is also a known cause of breast cancer and stomach Cancer?How about foods that you thought were healthy such as green bananas, rolled oats, and white beans. Or how about something simple like
I've read story after story of kids bullying kids who have no hair, either due to cancer or alopecia (a condition we don't know much about but seems to be growing with each year). When I was a kid, it wasn't called bullying; it was just a part of normal life in school to be teased for being overweight, losing your hair, being a geek, having braces, or not being with the “in crowd”.
One particular story we personally experienced here at AJ's Wigs happened when
So many of us worry about colin, breast, pancreatic, testicular, lung or lymph cancer, we forget about oral cancer. Oral cancer in its early stage development is often painless and the physical signs are
