Dr. Renjie Chang, Founder of NeuEve, a source for vaginal suppositories and cream promoting natural sexual wellness joins eHealth Radio and the Female Health & Sexual Health Channels.

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Dr. Renjie Chang discuss the following:

  • What are the major gaps in women's healthcare today, and is that what inspired you to create NeuEve?
  • What is NeuEve and how does it work?
  • For vaginal atrophy, how does NeuEve compare to estrogen?
  • For bacterial vaginosis, how does NeuEve compare to boric acid, douching, or antibiotics?
  • I heard that breast cancer survivors and hysterectomy patients love NeuEve. Why is that?


SummaryNeuEve provides a non-hormonal remedy for vaginal atrophy and dryness, better than regular vaginal moisturizers and lubes. After menopause, sex can become difficult due to vaginal atrophy. Estrogen supplements help, but estrogen greatly increases cancer risk. NeuEve also clears bacterial vaginosis (BV) effectively and naturally. Current BV treatments often lead to recurrent BV, but NeuEve, in taking an alternative and more holistic, caring approach, breaks the cycle.

 

Renjie Chang, M.D., M.S. graduated from Peking Union Medical University, the most prestigious medical school in China. Seeing patients in clinic firsthand, she always practiced medicine with a focus on both hard science and a soft bedside manner.

In the US, she worked as a faculty member of OB-GYN at University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center, and as a drug developer at the Abbott Laboratories in Chicago. At Abbott, she learned the vital skills of inventing and creating medicine. It’s a very different skill set than simply prescribing medicine.

After she left Abbott, she won grants from NIH and Gates Foundation for developing a new way to prevent the sexual transmission of HIV. It was while performing this research that she was inspired to create NeuEve. For Dr. Chang, NeuEve has been the culmination of a lifetime of learning and experience.

Dr. Kathleen Ruddy shares the untold story of her breast cancer virus research

October 31, 2015
00:0000:00


Dr. Kathleen Ruddy, an internationally recognized breast cancer surgeon, who has dedicated the last eight years to writing a book that reveals the untold story of her breast cancer virus research joins eHealth Radio and the Cancer Prevention and Health News Channels.


Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Dr. Kathleen Ruddy discuss the following:

  • What the basic premise of the new book?
  • What compelled you to write this book?
  • How do you hope this research will work towards a cure?    
  • What do you want the medical community to know?
  • What are 5 breast cancer myths you want to share?


Duration: 12:20


Internationally acclaimed as a global healthcare leader for the “Pure Cure” – breast cancer prevention – Dr. Ruddy works tirelessly to promote primary prevention of breast cancer. She is especially committed to supporting research on the human breast cancer virus and the development of preventive breast cancer vaccines.  Dr. Ruddy’s mission: To understand the specific causes of breast cancer and to use that knowledge to prevent the disease. Her vision: Persuade the world that Prevention Is The New Cure.


Dr. Ruddy has twice been recognized by the largest private insurer in New Jersey (Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey) as an outstanding surgeon whose outcomes and cost-effectiveness are exemplary. Dr. Ruddy has twice received awards for her blog on the breasthealthandhealing.org website.


Breast Cancer kills one woman every minute. That’s a statistic internationally recognized breast cancer surgeon Dr. Kathleen Ruddy is intent on changing. That challenge starts with a question: Can a mouse virus cause breast cancer in women?


Answering that question has become Dr. Ruddy’s life’s work. With 100 years of research establishing that most breast cancer may well be virus-based, the answer is vital to the future of millions of women and men. As Dr. Ruddy, the first and only breast cancer specialist to compile this encyclopedic research in one volume, remarks, “If there’s a virus that causes breast cancer, and a safe and effective vaccine that can prevent this disease, we need to know about it now, not in another 100 years.”


Although we can trace the origins of breast cancer back 5,000 years to the Egyptians, it was the research of Dr. John Bittner in the 1930s who discovered a breast cancer virus in mice that marked a turning point, Dr. Ruddy explains. From that moment on there has been a long tangled path for research on the breast cancer virus to be taken seriously, despite the mounting evidence supporting this idea.


After eight years of compiling and analyzing all available data, what has emerged, Dr. Ruddy believes, is compelling evidence that a virus found in a certain species of mice (Mouse Mammary Tumor Virus - MMTV) is responsible for up to 75% of human breast cancer.


In Of Mice and Women, (Breast Health and Healing Foundation) by Kathleen T. Ruddy, tells the story of this research, and why few of us have heard about it.
