Learning to Give Back

Our expert took an interesting approach to curing cancer. First, he began eliminating stress from his life was part of a self-devised plan to cure himself from cancer, after he became disillusioned with traditional Western cancer treatment protocol. “I was in the process of rehabilitating the kitchen and two bathrooms in my home,” he recalls. “Obviously, I love to travel, and have been to 87 different countries so far,” he says.

“My goal is to have left the world a better place when I depart this life through good deeds, good karma, and a constant positive attitude,” he says. Our expert is a retired dentist who now makes his home in Florida, where he is involved with the Presbyterian Church of Pompano Beach Missions Committee. He also detoxified his body, and severed all ties with people he considered negative. And he is now dedicated to giving back to society, and remaining a positive person. He tried to laugh every day, began making regular visits to a massage therapist, and saw a chiropractor who helped him get free of all pain.
Barely one year later he was cancer-free, and remains so to this day. That includes his continuing missionary work in Southeast Asia, where he has been involved in building schools, and medical and dental clinics in Thailand, Cambodia, and South Vietnam.

Dr Arthur Kanev says that he has always been handy with tools, and has built many new houses and rehabilitated five older homes. “I was doing all of the work by myself and this was obviously very stressful. Through his church he has worked on twenty-eight different missions, both locally and internationally. But a diagnosis of cancer in 2009 led to some radical changes in his life, one of which was setting down his tools, at least temporarily.


Dr Arthur Kanev – Helping the Homeless

Giving back to others is one of the most important things you can do as a person. Our own expert has been a volunteer at the Saint Laurence Chapel Homeless Shelter, and a volunteer at the Broward County Outreach Center, where homeless people receive help and hope in a non-judgmental environment. Four percent were part of a homeless family, and two percent were unaccompanied minors. They say that a much better indicator of the size of the problem is the number of people who experience homelessness at one time or another.

Most studies of the homeless population are limited to counting how many people are staying in homeless shelters, or can be counted as they live on the streets, according to the Coalition. Putting a number to how many people are homeless in the United States is a difficult proposition. On a survey of twenty-three cities, conducted by the U.S. The very nature of being without a fixed address makes an accurate headcount all but impossible, and experts say that the very question of how many people are homeless is a misleading one.

Experts at the National Coalition for the Homeless say that in most cases, homelessness is a temporary condition, not a permanent one, and so the numbers constantly fluctuate. People are often turned away from shelters because they fill up so quickly.  Of those who were in emergency shelters, seventy percent were single adults and twenty-nine percent were part of a family, while one percent were unaccompanied minors. In spite of what any statistics say, there is no denying that homelessness is a serious social problem, not just in the United States but all over the world. In any case, there are figures that are generally accepted. Conference of Mayors, ninety-four percent of people living on the street were single adults.
