Nowadays, orthopaedic oncologists do not use Coley’s Toxins for the treatment of bone and soft-tissue sarcomas. However, because many of these tumors are lethal, treatment options may one day be supplemented by immunotherapy. Since Coley’s death, the field of immunology has developed into a sophisticated specialty. Scientists are studying the effect on tumors of such factors as tumor necrosis factor (TNF), interferons, streptokinase and many other cytokines, all related to the immune system.20 Indeed, vaccines are being developed for the treatment of numerous types of cancer, particularly colon cancer and melanoma.21 One form of immunotherapy which is consistently effective is the installation of BCG bacilli into the bladder to treat superficial bladder cancer.

Dr. Joubert believes that we all deserve a life of vitality—and that we have the potential to create it for ourselves.

That’s why he is dedicated to tackling the root causes of chronic disease by harnessing the power of  Happiiness Medicine to transform healthcare.

UNLOCK THE POWER OF THE UNFOCUSED MIND

Harness your mind’s innate tendency to wander, stall, rest, and unfocus and become more productive—in the boardroom, living room, or classroom.

To finish tasks and achieve goals, most people believe that more focus is the solution. We rely on to-do lists, calendar reminders, noise-blocking headphones, and sometimes medication to help us concentrate—even though these tactics often fail to substantially improve productivity. Drawing on the latest brain research, compelling stories from his psychological practice, and colorful examples of counterintuitive success from sports, business, education, and the arts, neuroscientist Srini Pillay, M.D., challenges traditional ideas about productivity, revealing the lasting, positive benefits of adding deliberate and regular unfocus to your repertoireA fascinating tour through brain wavelengths and rhythm, mindsets, and mental relaxation, Tinker Dabble Doodle Try demonstrates how specific kinds of planned unfocus stimulate cognitive calmness, jumpstart productivity, enhance innovation, inspire creativity, improve long-term memory, and, of course, help you stay on target. Tinkering with ideas and with things releases your mind to wander from a state of stuckness into a possibility frame of mind, triggering neural connections and new insights. Dabbling in a new endeavor—whether a hobby or fantasy—disrupts your habitual and reactive thinking, helping you find new solutions to old problems. Doodling can help you tap into another brain frequency to remove obstacles and create opportunities and inspiration. With techniques for training the brain to unfocus, concepts for scheduling busy lives, and ideas for controlling this new cognitive-toggling capability, Tinker Dabble Doodle Try will change how you think about daydreaming, relaxing, leaving work unfinished, and even multitasking. What you’ll discover is a greater freedom, a deeper intelligence, and a more profound joy in your life.

Tinker Dabble Doodle Try is now available for pre-order at the following websites:

Warren Bennis, one of the most respected authorities on leadership in the world, said: “Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality.” On the surface, this sounds perfunctory. But when we examine this more deeply, several important implications arise. If leadership is the ability to translate vision into reality, what is the method to do this? One way, according to the latest research, is to use our brains to optimize our chances of success.

There is now incontrovertible evidence that imagining a movement will stimulate the movement areas in the brain.

The recent example of the detailed visualization of Mikaela Shiffrin leading to a gold medal in the Olympic slalom is one such case in point.

This evidence suggests that to reach your goals first write them down, and then determine different possible ways of achieving them. Then, close your eyes and imagine yourself following those paths. Imagination “warms up” the action brain and “jump starts” your brain.  This technique can be especially helpful if you are procrastinating or stuck.

But, as easy as it sounds, simply closing your eyes and imagining yourself accomplishing a goal or leading a team to do so may feel challenging for a number of reasons. Many of my clients, for example, have asked: “What if I don’t feel confident enough to imagine? What if I have missed my targets for several quarters, and trying to imagine getting to my goal is anxiety-provoking?”

First, multiple forms of imagery have been found to be helpful in reducing anxiety, so imagining can actually help you feel less anxious.

Second, to improve your confidence, one especially helpful type of imagery that you can use is called motivational-general mastery (M-GM), 

www.athleticinsight.com/Vol5Iss2/ClimbingImagery.htm

which involves keeping an eye on your goal, while imagining coming from behind.

www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18949659

M-GM stands in contrast to the static imagery of imagining having your goal in hand, as in holding up a trophy. Actually coming from behind to reach your goals appears to be a more powerful way to increase your confidence. To do this, clearly define your benchmarks, and then denote where you are and when and how you anticipate reaching and even exceeding them. Literally sketch this out on paper first so that you can use this script to create your mental image.

The next question people often ask is: How can I imagine exceeding my benchmarks when I have no idea of how I will actually do it? Remember that when you say you have “no idea”, you mean you have no conscious idea. However, a recent review of 75 papers revealed that imagery can help in several ways:

www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0149763413000778

In addition to helping to focus your attention by stimulating attentional networks in the brain, imagery can actually help your brain to map your path to your goal outside of conscious awareness. Imagining activates brain regions that can unconsciously map your path to success. Not knowing “how” doesn’t actually matter, since the brain will figure this out once you let it know where you want to go.

How can this be? When you program your car’s navigator with your destination, your car figures out how to take you to your destination. Similarly, your brain has the ability to map out your course to your goal once you clearly communicate to yourself what this goal is. In addition, imagining your journey also helps to keep your brain on track as it will constantly refer to this image and update your journey with greater ease than if you did not provide this information to it.

Many people and teams I have coached use this method to guide their paths to success. Rather than simply having a business plan, they make a mental movie of a business plan. When you have a vision for your life and business, it helps to make this quite literal.

As a start, define your goal. Make it real and graphic. Google and print out representations of this image, or spend actual time visualizing the image in high definition. Set aside time to do this every morning and think of it as feeding your brain graphic information so that it can help you chart your path to your goals. By repeatedly practicing this method, you can really conserve brain resources because practice generates automatic patterns in the brain, decreasing the need to recruit or invite brain regions involved in deliberate effort.

www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22945291

Brain science teaches us that a picture is worth a 1000 words because it serves as an attentional guide, motivator and map to the brain to help you navigate your way to come from behind to reach or exceed your goals. Now that you know how to translate vision into reality, what’s stopping you?

Debunking Myths of the Mind

How to Deal with The Anxiety of Uncertainty in New Opportunities

Tools to Handle New Frightening Opportunities

In the course of my career as a therapist, I have seen people from all kinds of socio-economic backgrounds and intellectual capacities. I have seen rich people who were not all that smart, rich people who were brilliant, people with an average income who were smart and those who were not, and poor people who were amazingly smart and those who were not. Anecdotally, there is clearly no connection between actual “smarts” and wealth, so I began to think more deeply about what is was that led to those who had not inherited their wealth to pursue and acquire it, and whether this factor was in fact absent amongst those who were not able to. And I came up with one characteristic that shines through – and that had to do with the way people manage personal uncertainty.

Uncertainty is not a friend of the brain. In fact, the brain’s fear center freaks out when it is presented with uncertainty and seeks to resolve it as quickly as possible. Now while this is advantageous in certain situations, in many, it is exactly the opposite of what a person needs to move ahead. If you are crossing a road, for example, and if you are uncertain about whether to race against an oncoming car, it would make sense to resolve that ambivalence and do the “safer” thing.  But if you had an entrepreneurial opportunity that could help you escape from your current underpaid work situation, resolving the ambivalence of working because you are uncertain about leaving may not always be the best decision. Given that we will always rationalize what feels safer to us in favor of what is more familiar, how can we prevent seeing every opportunity as an incoming car, and when we do, how can we reject the familiar for a much wanted change in life?

A few principles that I have learned over the years: If you don’t move toward what you are interested in, your interest will wane. Get to know the opportunity better. Rather than making an instant decision or being focused on making a decision, focus on finding out more. Give your curious nature a chance. Allow yourself to get close enough so you can know the anxieties that you anticipate. Go back and forth until you feel comfortable with what you are considering. Make that opportunity familiar. For example, if you have an opportunity to pursue a novel idea with some interesting people but don’t know if it worth leaving your job over, meet with them often. Ask questions. Boldly ask for an extended timeline and options for joining later or options to opt out if it does not work. See if you can work on this part-time while you are at work. Go online to speak to a variety of people for whom this kind of move has worked out and for those for whom it hasn’t.  The latter will likely be more plentiful, but this does not mean that you should give up.

In the meanwhile, you have to make sure that your anxiety about a new opportunity is not keeping you back.  How do you manage this?  Baby steps, I would say are better than no movement at all for first timers.  Sharing the risk (as well as the potential gain) is always reassuring-get more people involved in your ideas.  Set aside separate time to look at the upside and spend even a week focused only on this.  Send some time in the mindset of the new choice.  Even pretend for a weekend day that you have left your old position and sketch out what your daily schedule would look like.  Decide on a backup plan if you feel this will help you.  And always remember that you started once, and you can always re-start if you are determined.  Supportive people help a lot – so spend more time with people you trust.  And read more success stories than failure stories – your anxiety will have enough of your own failure stories made up.

This, I emphasize is a brief blog, so I simply summarize the ideas here.  I understand that the summary may sound glib and that none of this is easy.  But at the deepest level, you have to ask yourself:  how much longer do I have to live and how do I want to live my life?  If my anxiety about uncertainty  is holding me back, what baby steps can I take to get to know it better?

The Happiness Medicine Institute's central mission is centered on shouldering the masses (ie majority of People including, but not limited to the low and modest income categories) to meet their fundamental human birth-right of living a fulfilling, healthy and an evolutionarily designed Lifespan of 120 years and beyond. The only son of a Polish Jew mother and a Catholic Frenchmen father from Bordeaux, Christian and has come to the US, like Lafayette, to share the best of French and European experiences with Americans in order to beat the "enemy". In the 18th century, Lafayette, Rochambeau and France were the decisive forces that toppled those nasty British imperialists in Yorktown, thanks to which American sovereignty was made possible. In the 21st century, the "enemy" is chronic stress and an American food, medical and public health system that is un-necessarily maiming and killing Americans by the millions each year. Once (and if) the official standards of care become consistent with the People's basic needs and with the best Science, then Christian's mission will have been accomplished. In terms of bio, Christian was trained in French conventional medicine, Chinese acupuncture, European naturopathy, law, wine and a few other disciplines. He has partaken in thousands of seminars and conferences to corroborate what the safest, most efficient and cost friendly health restoration and lifespan techniques are. To this end, Christian established a research and education center called happiness medicine institute. A former law professor (Paris and Gonzaga School of Law), organic agriculture farmer (certified by Ecocert), professor of holistic oncology, naturopath and director of other health centers, Christian has been specializing for over twenty years in geroscience and biogerontology as both these "optimal longevity" fields of the Health Sciences are much more "holistic" and useful than conventional medicine insofar as slowing down and reversing age-related pathologies is concerned, including the aging process itself. As a result, by better tweaking the aging process and its concomitant longevity determinants, we can modulate and resolve most chronic diseases, including cancer, auto-immunity, diabetes, mental disorders, cardiovascular events and much more. The only rampant malady holistic medicine is powerless to act upon is arrogance (ie, hubris). Thus, not everyone can benefit from Joubert's expertise. If motivated people comply to a holistic lifestyle with specific longevity and happiness techniques, they can die after having peacefully reached 120 without any chronic diseases. Over 95 percent of chronic diseases are completely avoidable. This claim is not constitutive of what is called a "false promise". The evidence is overwhelmingly established, but most pharmaceutical firms and their medical and political allies ignore these claims and-or are not interested, if only because Joubert's proposed holistic techniques do not generate enough cash-flow for corporate appetite to be satieted. This extension of time to 120 years and beyond will give People more opportunities to better enjoy Life (Joie de vivre) and build the conditions that will lead to a new, lasting, healthier and happier civilization based on the exact opposite values and mechanisms of most of today's outdated and irrational standards and systems. Christian investigates Science, medicine and any other phenomena with medically and legally trained eyes. And digs deep, through multiple layers of knowledge and via multiple fields of science, thank to which he is able to identify the inter-connectiveness of relevant issues and determine the key root cause (or causes) upon which the consultee can act. Thus, over 95 percent of published material and common clinical practice is weeded out in order to get to the “crème”, the quintessence, the clinical pearl or what jurists call the “therapeutic relevance” for the benefit of whatever the health challenge may be….. So don't hesitate to schedule an appointment with Christian before he goes away. By doing so, the consultee will learn innovative, safe, efficient and cost-friendly techniques to achieve a healthy lifespan of over 120 years, as the French Mediterranean lady, Jeanne Calment has, (ie, the book of Guinness confirms she is the longest living human ever and most people don't even know why), as the most successful "bleu zone" does (i.e., the French-cultured Principality of Monaco in the Mediterranean South has the most centenarians, most bleu zoners don't know this) and as the French culture and lifestyle have abundantly shown over the last 1600 years, including, but not limited to its Mediterranean diet, Lourdes, its wine, its thermal medicine as well as to its many other health promoting techniques including France's health-vacation spas and other "joie de vivre" institutions that substantially slow down the rate at which telomeres shorten while significantly upregulating (activating) the other eleven hallmarks of Optimal Longevity. Thus, it's not for nothing that the World Health Organization ranked France as having the best health-care system in the world.
