The psychic viewpoint regarding cremation
Cremation is the process of using fire to burn the corpse shortly after death to purify the atoms of the physical body from the dross negative thoughts impinged within.
Cremation frees the soul-mind more quickly from the magnetic pull of the bone and cell structure to allow the soul-mind to go about its new tasks in the etheric world (invisible space containing many kinds of life forms and many levels of intelligences, all of which are communicating psychiacally with mankind).
Cremation hastens the reduction of material elements of the physical body to the primal elements again.

Cryoablation appears to be an effective treatment for cancerous kidney tumors; however, follow-up studies are needed before the procedure can be widely applied, according to Thomas Atwell, M.D., a Mayo Clinic radiologist and the study's primary investigator.
The general criteria for cryoablation includes the size and appearance of the tumor and the number of lesions in the kidney.
For patients who undergo surgery, the hospital stay and recovery period are longer as compared to patients treated with cryoablation because patients who undergo cryoablation will have small quarter inch incision where the cryoprobe is inserted and the mark is covered with a bandage and recovery usually amounts to one day in a hospital, as compared to several days for patients who undergo surgery.
"A review of 62 Mayo Clinic patients who underwent cryoablation to treat cancerous kidney tumors shows that the patients are cancer free for up to two and a half years after having had the procedure".
