Poly MVA Survivors
Poly-MVA is now being recommended for patient use by doctors in United States & 9 Foreign Countries. It has been approved for usage in Mexico. Poly-MVA is a new, nontoxic, powerful antioxidant formula that protects both cell DNA and RNA. The use of this natural substance which helps to “fix the cell” and control the cancer, rather than “fight the cancer” by poisoning the system, has clearly demonstrated safe antitumoral activity. Compared to chemotherapy, Poly-MVA offers an alternative, extremely powerful, treatment.

According to Michigan State University (MSU), “Laughter is a cardiovascular exercise in that it makes our hearts beat stronger, our blood flow more briskly and more oxygen is delivered to our cells.” That’s why laughter is good for our body and our mind. “Research has proven that mirthful laughter can stimulate our immune system, increase our protection against viruses, bacteria and even cancer.” (MSU)

The world-famous Mayo Clinic makes some pretty strong arguments why laughter is the best medicine. If you’ve read Sharee’s blog, you already know how much she counted on her friends to send her jokes while she was fighting cancer. You’ll find some of those jokes on our Humor page.
