Note: do not email me unless you would like a personalized protocol (free with a suggested donation of $250 towards maintaining this site). Instead, please take the time to research the information on this site that I have made available to you for no cost to you, and take charge of your own health instead of delegating it to someone else and then just trying to chat with them without making the necessary changes to your diet and lifestyle that require a lot of self-discipline and learning on your part. People have wasted thousands of hours of my time (I get several hundred emails/day, many of them continuing chain emails from this site) because they wanted me to do some research on the internet for answers to their questions, or wanted me to retype the information that is already on my website piece-meal into emails -- probably because I did not charge them for my time. I will not do this any more. Colleagues charge $650 for a 15 minute consultation, and say that people are sending countless emails for every aspect of everything that they should be looking up themselves because it doesn't cost them anything.

Unfortunately, most people won't even take the time to read a book (or the information on my website) even if their very life depends upon it! Many people even emailed me and wanted me to retype the very same information that is on my website and in Dr. Blaylock's book into emails (most of which they did not bother to read, even after I spent what little "free" time I had rehashing the same information and sending it piecemeal); they then decided that it was too much "work" to take supplements and blenderize their vegetables in a Vitamix every day. The information you need is here: please read it and use it! There is no easy way out of reading and learning what you need to do to help save your life by simply talking for a few minutes on the phone or exchanging a couple of emails: you're trying to undo a lifetime of bad habits and it's going to take some work, and after you beat the cancer, you are still going to have to follow a very good diet and lifestyle and take supplements (fewer than when you had active cancer, but still substantial) to help keep the cancer from returning. Instead of emailing me, please read all my health-related web pages, along with Dr. Blaylock's books, Newsmax articles and subscription newsletters (see my main cancer page for links) and Jerry Brunetti's interviews. One person with Stage 4 cancer that had metastasized throughout her body actually called and asked me if she could take only one supplement (and without even radically changing her diet and lifestyle) to cure herself of cancer! Unfortunately, many people email and call without even taking the time to read the information that I've spent so much time to make available to all, at no charge, and then expect me to rehash the same information that they would already know if they were not too lazy to read the material first. My time is very limited.

I recommend looking at my raw foods and cancer page, and I would also see the info about herbs and supplements on my chemo radiation herbs page that help reduce the damage from chemo and radiation (see the article "Stay Away From Chemotherapy and Radiation" below), and my main cancer protocol page (e.g., org ginger, org garlic, org cayenne or chili pepper, freshly ground org flaxseed [instead of oil -- see lengthy explanation how most people lack enough of the enzyme to convert the ALA in flaxseed oil into DHA/EPA fish oil and the ALA therefore increases inflammation and cancer in them]. I use Chrysin and DIM (www.youngagain.com), open capsules and mix both in oil, to remove bad estrogens (hormone related problems). See my main cancer page about ginkgo biloba or any other supplements you have questions about, as well as Dr. Blaylock's newsletters, Newsmax articles and his book (look up any supplements you have questions about in the index of his book; search my website [http://www.ixquick.com and then in the searchbox, type "host:distance-healer.com somephrase" without the quotes and replace somephrase with the phrase or word(s) you are looking for]; and search Dr. Blaylock's PDF newsletters and Newsmax articles using your web browser). Dandelion root is good for cancer and liver detox (my main cancer page). Milk thistle, curcumin, quercetin, garlic, ginger, cayenne (all organic) are oil-soluble (see main cancer page) and help a lot to reduce inflammation -- a big part of cancer -- as well as attack cancer directly. I wouldn't take too much manganese except what is in a good multivitamin (I use Activite Sport 4/d per 150 pounds; proportionally less for smaller person). I wouldn't use L-Glutamine; it's an excitotoxin and stimulates some cancers -- see Dr. Blaylock's books, newsletters and my website. Green tea extract (EGCG), pomegranate extract (a specific one -- see main cancer pg), high dosages of enzymes (to digest cancer -- the outer cell wall with which it hides from immune system), Resveratrol, Vitamin D3 (7500iu/d), K2 (MK7) & sauerkraut (only cabbage, salt & water -- no preservatives -- raw homemade or Bubbies brand is best) every day as another source of K2, and several other supplements/herbs are quite important, too. Also, see my imagery/visualization howto (on my main Cancer Protocol page -- search using your internet browser's Find or Search this page function).

Dr. Blaylock has several newsletters about reducing inflammation. Dr. Blaylock's newsletter is a good one to subscribe to: every month he has a great issue. Also, I recommend getting his book, "Natural Strategies for Cancer Patients" (www.amazon.com), and his free columns on Newsmax.

Aug2013 p5 Self-Discipline is very important in beating cancer, maintaining optimal health
Good Health Requires Discipline
After treating so many people with nutritional problems, I have come to realize that the biggest issue is that most people lack willpower.
Some time ago, I had a patient who came to me wanting to avoid cancer. I reviewed his diet and found he was eating everything he could eat to assure he would get cancer.
Yet when I told him he would have to avoid these high-risk foods, he replied that he would never give them up. Then he left, never to be seen again.
Most women, when they speak to me about wanting to lose weight, make it plain that they do not want to give up their favorite foods — they want a weight-loss pill. This is how so many women ended up with heart damage from taking the weight-loss drug Fen-Phen.
But good health, as with everything worthwhile in life, requires sacrifice and discipline. It has been said that the undisciplined life is not worth living. In truth, the
undisciplined life will be full of misery — before it is cut short.
Eating is not a form of entertainment. Food has only purpose: to supply your cells and tissues with the nutrients they need for proper function.
Many of the things we eat for pleasure can cause great harm. Virtually every disease suffered by humans is either caused by or worsened by poor nutrition.
Permanent weight loss and good health require that you change your lifestyle and nutrition permanently. So-called yo-yo dieting is extremely harmful and can result in permanent damage to the heart and kidneys as well as other organs... (excerpt: see Aug2013 "The Blaylock Wellness Report")


Apr2013 Dr. Blaylock turned a patient's health around by getting him to stop eating Fried Foods (reversed diabetes and other health problems by changing his diet).

The surest and cheapest way to detect cancer also shows how to treat it
Volume 11, Issue 101     November 10, 2014

What if you have cancer and the doctor you go to knows what substance feeds that cancer? You would expect your doctor to tell you to avoid that substance, right? Well, imagine that he tells you that you can eat as much of that substance as you want. That it somehow won't make any difference on your overall outcome. Does this make any sense at all? Of course not. But it happens all the time. In fact, in oncology (cancer) medicine, it's routine.

Recently, doctors developed a new way to test for cancer. It's called a glucoCEST. GlucoCEST stands for glucose chemical exchange saturation transfer. Here's what it does. The system enables a standard MRI scanning machine to determine how much glucose any spot in the body takes up. And that's important. Because glucose is the basic sugar that is in table sugar and that all carbohydrates break down into. By carbohydrates I mean grains, fruit, and starches. And how does the glucoCEST test for the presence of cancer?

Cancer cells are unique. Unlike healthy cells, they can only live off glucose. Other cells can live off fat, but cancer cells can't. They need glucose. So what the researchers do is feed a small amount of glucose to a patient and then see if there are any areas in the body that immediately consume it. When they find an area that consumes the glucose immediately, that area is cancerous. Now this new detection device is fantastic for several reasons.

What you need to know to protect yourself.

One, it dramatically shows how important it is for patients with cancer to avoid eating the foods that feed the cancer — carbohydrates. According to Professor Mark Lythgoe, the senior author on the study, using this new technique, "We can detect cancer using the same sugar content found in half a standard-sized chocolate bar." Did you get that? He is saying that the amount of sugar that is found in only half of a candy bar is sufficient to be picked up by a cancer and light up a scanning device enough to show where the cancer is. The moral is simple. Do you want to feed your cancer and make it grow faster? Then start eating sugar, grains, and fruits.

Now many of you reading this report might respond by saying, "What's so new about this kind of measurement?" PET (positive emission tomography) scans have been doing that for years. Yes, but there is a big difference between PET scans and the glucoCEST scan. First of all, glucoCEST uses real sugar. PET scans have to use radioactive sugar. Patients with cancer are already exposed to a lot of radiation simply because of their disease treatment. Less would be better. Also, the radioactive sugar is way more expensive than regular sugar.

In addition to being a safer and simpler alternative to PET scans, the new procedure is more sensitive than PET scans and allows the radiologists to see the tumors in greater detail. According to Professor Lythgoe, doctors can use the new glucoCEST with any MRI.
I don't know when the glucoCEST will be available at your local hospital, but I do know this. If you have cancer and your oncologist says it doesn't matter whether you eat sugar or the grains and fruits that break down into sugar, ignore his advice. This new technology shows that the sugar or carbs you are eating will go straight to your cancer and cause it to grow faster.

Yours for better health,

Essiac tea needs to be organic and non-irradiated (see my website and search for Essiac tea). See Blaylock's book and newsletters, and my cancer pages. On them and in Blaylock's book/newsletters, he tells not only about the vitamins and many of the supplements you asked about, but the correct forms of them (e.g., magnesium malate, magnesium ascorbate instead of acidic vitamin C, etc.)

I would use Lugol's iodine instead of kelp, which absorbs heavy metals from the environment that it is grown in. See my main cancer page and Chemtrails page re pure chlorella (aborbs heavy metals from the environment) and cilantro, NAC (precursor of glutathione, a powerful antioxidant).

I use Morton blue salt substitute with more potassium chloride than sodium chloride as a source of potassium, along with some additional KCl (or potassium Citrate). I get most of my nutrients from specific raw organic blenderized vegetables (see my raw food and cancer page).

Some other important herbs and supplements

I also take 1 Zyflamend Whole Body twice a day with food to reduce inflammation:
Zyflamend, New Chapter 120 hexane-Free Softgel Capsules [Take one softgel two times daily. Take in the middle of a larger meal with an 8 oz glass of water;
http://www.iherb.com[NCR-04054, New Chapter Zyflamend, 120 hexane-Free Softgel Capsules NC-4054];

http://www.luckyvitamin.com; Swanson [NWC024];
(compare prices)

There is a difference between organic and organic free range chicken (and other meat) because the free range is higher in omega-3 from eating grass seed, bugs, etc. Even if something is organic, it may have been fed organic corn meal (omega-6 pro-inflammatory and pro-cancer). Also, line caught salmon, sardines and anchovies are better for reducing inflammation and fighting cancer.

Don't forget to add org ground cayenne or chili powder and org ginger to your org raw garlic; they're oil soluble, so mix in EV Cold Pressed Olive Oil. Curcumin, Quercetin, Hesperidin, Myrrh, Boswellia are also oil soluble and capsules can be opened and mixed in together in the oil; see main cancer page. Organic Barley Grass (I use Now brand) is good in a green drink; I mix powdered Magnesium Ascorbate (buffered Vitamin C), Magnesium Citrate and Mg Malate, and some other water soluble powders and capsules that I open in my green drinks (2/d), also.

Artemisinin would also help against cancer, but I only took the concentrated extract capsules for 2 months. Also, red meat and too much iron stimulates cancer and pathogen growth. Even vegetable sourced iron can be absorbed too well if taken with acid, such as the ascorbic acid form of vitamin C.

Cancer is a systemic, not a localized, disease; it is a warning from your body that your diet and lifestyle need to be changed. 80% of your genetic predisposition towards disease can either be activated or held in check by proper diet and lifestyle. Every one of us has some cancer cells in our body every day (due to errors in cell division, DNA damage caused by radiation, chemicals, viruses, genetic tendencies activated by bad diet or lifestyle, etc.), and our immune system is usually successful in destroying it, so a strong immune system, along with a very healthy (specific organic foods in certain balance for your MT) diet, specific supplements (at reduced dosages, unless there are symptoms that cancer is overwhelming your body, e.g., tumors, abnormal bleeding, or other standard cancer symptoms listed in Merck Manual or on ACS site), lifestyle, spirituality/attitude and environment, are keys to fighting cancer. We only notice cancer if it overwhelms our immune system and grows into a noticeable tumor. Even when you've beaten cancer, it is important to maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle so that you won't get it back, especially since already know that you have a tendency to get cancer. In one study, they found live breast cancer cells still circulating in people who were pronounced "cured" 7-22 years later! This emphasizes the importance of taking care of ourselves even after we're "cured". (See the article "Too Few Cancer Survivors Pursue Healthy Lifestyles" elsewhere on this page)

Also, see the part in Kelley's article below about there being no need for biopsies and other tests if there is a lump or tumor with any other standard signs of cancer (on the American Cancer Society's website, or get yourself a Merck Manual Professional Edition on www.amazon.com), especially if there are tumors that show up in x-rays, signs of skin cancer, abnormal bleeding, etc. then I would increase the cancer preventative supplements that you should already be on (in addition to ginger, hot pepper and garlic, very good organic diet, lifestyle, etc.)

I had double pneumonia that they couldn't clear up with combinations of the strongest antibiotics, which made the pulmonologist suspect cancer and do a couple of chest xrays. Then he wanted me to have CAT scans (600 chest xrays of radiation each -- he wouldn't agree to MRI's) along with biopsies, and said that he would treat it with chemotherapy and radiation. That's when I walked out the door. He told me that "my life was in my own hands". I replied that it always was. (Do not delegate responsibility for your health to others; they only provide advice, some good and some bad; it's your job to research and sort it out, then decide what to do with your life).

See the following about How a Free Prostate Screening Killed John English, and how having unnecessary screenings and tests is dangerous.

You Have a 50% Chance of Being Misdiagnosed
"But there are steps you can take to protect yourself." -- Dr. Bruce West

I'm blowing the whistle on one of the Medical Establishment's most disgraceful scandals: the shocking number of injuries, painful afflictions and even deaths caused by physicians and their treatments.
It's a scandal that could cost you your health and even your life.
And in your free copy of The 45-Day Health Turnaround, I'll show you how to protect yourself from this dire threat to your health.

The staggering statistics show how real this threat is:

FACT: You have a 50% chance of being at least partially misdiagnosed in a hospital. And that statistic comes right out of the Journal of the American Medical Association (Vol. 258, No. 3).

FACT: More than 200,000 Americans die each year from properly prescribed drugs. When you add in the hundreds of thousands who die from improperly prescribed drugs, you begin to understand the massive scope of needless deaths every year!

FACT: Each year, over 100,000 people die from a serious infection contracted in hospitals. Flesh-eating bacteria make the headlines, but you can contract more than a dozen serious infections in a place that's supposed to help you get better, but often makes you sicker.

FACT: An estimated 100,000 people each year are either permanently disabled or killed from surgical procedures gone horribly wrong. And remarkably, an estimated 7,000 of those procedures were completely unnecessary.

Key Findings:
* Over-diagnosis has led millions of people to become patients unnecessarily.
* You have a 50% chance of being at least partially misdiagnosed in a hospital.
* Medical screenings are notoriously inaccurate and many are scams that provide no benefit to the patient, but make billions for Big Pharma.

The Biggest Danger to Your Health!
Worse yet, the Medical Establishment has now concocted a fresh new way to endanger your health.
It's those seemingly "harmless" medical screenings that are so popular right now. They're among the leading causes of injury and death by physicians. (See John English's sad, but eye-opening story, below.)
These tests are notoriously inaccurate and statistically, do nothing to prolong life.
Your doctor might insist that scans and screenings are good preventative medicine, but the facts say otherwise...

FACT: Half of the people who submit a spinal scan are told they have bulging discs, even though they have no history of back pain.

FACT: About 40% of people with no Knee problems are (mis)diagnosed with meniscus damage because of a faulty scan.

FACT: Cancer screenings cause millions of people to be diagnosed with cancer that would never cause harm in their lifetime. Many of them are subjected to chemotherapy, radiation and even surgery -- all for nothing!

The Bottom Line: Medical scans and screenings routinely lead to "over-diagnosis," or finding problems that don't really exist (which are then "treated" with toxic drugs or dangerous surgery).

Is Your Doctor Making You Sick?

Three Dartmouth professors, all physicians, summed things up in their recent book, Over-diagnosed: Making People Sick in the Pursuit of Health...

"Over-diagnosis has led millions of people to become patients unnecessarily, to be made anxious about their health, to be treated needlessly and to bear the associated inconvenience and financial burden."

How a Free Prostate Screening Killed John English

Medical screenings are too often scams that lead to over-diagnosis, over-treatment, side effects and even death.

John English underwent a free prostate screening offered by his local hospital as part of Prostate Cancer Awareness Week. He became a nervous wreck when the PSA test came back with a 4.3 reading.

He underwent 20 painful biopsy punches, which disclosed he had a small, non-aggressive cancer. This led to an unnecessary radical prostatectomy (removal of the prostate gland) that left John impotent and in diapers.
A follow-up test showed his PSA was once again rising, which according to John's doctor, meant a piece of cancerous prostate tissue had been left behind. So John underwent radiation therapy, which burned a hole through his rectum and bladder.

That led to a colostomy (removal of the colon). He was scheduled to have his bladder removed as well, but before they could operate, John died of sepsis caused by a bladder infection.
According to the death certificate, John officially died of a urinary tract infection. But in realty, he died from a free medical screening that he didn't really need, which led to cancer treatments that he also didn't need.
You see, John would have died from natural causes long before his non-aggressive cancer became a problem!
The secrets revealed in your free copy of the The 45-Day Health Turnaround will help you to avoid the over-diagnosis and over-treatment that tragically cost John English his life.

How Some Hand Sanitizers Make You Sick
by: Dr. Craig A. Maxwell
http://www.askdrmaxwell.com/2014/02/antibacterial-hand-sanitizers-make-sick/

Triclosan Can Be Harmful to Your Health

You do what you can to stay healthy. Unfortunately, even if you're eating the best diet and working out regularly, you could still be setting yourself up for serious disease from a dangerous toxin you willingly use each and every day.

That toxin is called Triclosan and if you carry around a small bottle of antibacterial gel in your purse or glove compartment, you may be slathering it on each and every day. You'll want to check that anti-bacterial gel, and many other products in your home, to make sure they do not contain this toxic substance.

Alcohol based hand sanitizers, such as those containing ethanol, are much better. There is no doubt that alcohol based hand sanitizers save lives and reduce the transmission of infectious diseases without the dangers associated with Triclosan.

What is Triclosan?

Triclosan is a synthetically-derived antibacterial, antifungal agent. It was first patented in 1966 by the Colgate-Palmolive Corporation. A year later the first Triclosan-based antibacterial bar soap hit the market. During the 1970s, Triclosan-based products were used primarily by surgeons as a pre-operative scrubbing agent. It wasn't until the mid 1980s that antibacterial soap and other products containing Triclosan hit the mainstream.

How Triclosan Became So Popular

In the early to mid-2000s, stories of infectious disease outbreaks such as Severe Acute Respiratory System (SARS) and Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) began frightening people into using as many antimicrobial agents as possible to protect themselves from potential threat.

The recent threat of a Bird Flu epidemic had millions of worried people slathering on gobs of Triclosan-containing antibacterial hand gel each time they left their homes or were exposed to the slightest hint of a sneeze from others.

Triclosan isn't just for hand gels and soap anymore. Today this synthetic antibacterial agent can be found in everything from cosmetics to socks. In 2005, the FDA concluded that the use of Triclosan containing products did not pose a human health hazard. However, other countries, namely Canada, most of Europe, and Japan, have banned the substance, deeming it too toxic for mass consumption.

How Triclosan Works

Triclosan is called a "selectively-toxic chemical." It works on bacteria by blocking the active site of the enoyl-acyl carrier protein reductase (ENR), which is an essential enzyme in fatty acids synthesis. If the bacterium cannot synthesize the fatty acid in a cell, it cannot reproduce and create infection.

This may sound really great on the surface, however, Triclosan and other synthetic antimicrobial agents were only meant to be used in emergency situations, or on a temporary basis. In hospital settings, this synthetic antibacterial agent has been proven to be effective when used in this way.

However, continued use has the exact opposite effect. Overexposure to this chemical wreaks havoc with your body and causes a slow breakdown of your immune system, dependence on the agent, and antibiotic resistance.

How Triclosan is Slowly Destroying Your Health

A study by the FDA showed that households using Triclosan-based products did not see a decrease in bacterial or viral infections. The FDA also concluded that excessive use of Triclosan could create bacterial resistance to antibiotics.

Common health dangers associated with Triclosan include:

Thyroid Disease

Triclosan has chlorinated structures that bind to the thyroid gland, which displaces essential iodine, and causes chronic inflammation. A depleted antioxidant system in the thyroid gland is a leading cause for thyroid diseases such as hyperthyroidism, hyperthyroidism, Grave's disease, and thyroid cancer. Triclosan can also cause liver dysfunction.

Antibiotic Resistance

One of the largest concerns of excessive use of this synthetic antibacterial agent is antibiotic resistance. This occurs when the immune system has built up a tolerance and resistance to an antimicrobial agent. It is then more difficult for conventional antibiotics to treat any serious bacterial outbreak the person may have.

Liver Toxicity

When combined with water, Triclosan produces a type of chloroform gas that is toxic to the liver. Symptoms of liver toxicity include chronic fatigue syndrome, emotional disturbances, digestive problems such as bloating and swelling after a meal, and the inability to lose weight.

Muscle Weakness

According to a study published by the Department of Molecular Biosciences in the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, Triclosan causes muscle weakness and reduced movement in fish. A mouse injected with 1 percent Triclosan experienced heart failure in less than one minute due to an interference with the brain-heart muscle connection.

Autoimmune Disease

Your immune system is designed to protect your body from foreign invaders. When you continue to use Triclosan-based products, your immune system works overtime to protect you. If your immune system remains in the constant "fight or flight" mode, it begins to malfunction, causing autoimmune diseases such as chronic fatigue syndrome, arthritis, and psoriasis. The more toxins you put into your body, the more your immune system won't recognize your healthy tissue and will attack it as a foreign entity.

Other Names for Triclosan

Products containing Triclosan are usually clearly labeled as containing the synthetic antimicrobial. However, it is called Microban when used in plastics and clothing and BioFresh when used in acrylic fibers.
How to Avoid Triclosan

First and foremost, stop using antibacterial hand gel, dish soap, and hand soap if the label states it contains Triclosan. Secondly, start reading the labels on everything you use. If it contains Triclosan, get rid of it.

After you've eliminated all traces of Triclosan, it's time to find safe, natural replacements. I recommend castile soap. Castile soap is an olive-oil based soap that can be used as a shampoo, body wash, shaving soap, laundry detergent, and household cleaning product. It's quite inexpensive and saves a ton of money when you realize just how many uses it has.

To avoid Triclosan in cosmetic products, opt for mineral make-up and natural exfoliants and creams. Baking soda, for example, makes an excellent and cheap skin scrub while virgin coconut oil easily replaces any lotion or cream you're using now.

Healing from Triclosan Toxicity

The best way to improve your immune system and heal from any damage this antimicrobial agent has caused is to eat a whole-food diet and choose whole food supplements.

I have recently created a line of healing nutritional supplements designed to meet your health needs. At Diamond Nutritionals you can choose the nutritional supplement that best suits your needs and those of your family. We offer a complete line of professional grade nutritional and immune-boosting supplements.

In my opinion, you should avoid Triclosan at all costs. Give your system a much-needed break from the influx of toxins into your system. Switch to organic food, natural household cleaners and cosmetics, and Diamond Nutritional's Professional-Grade Supplements.

You'll be amazed at how much better you feel!

Changing the Way Our Genes Communicate
http://www.dreliaz.org/changing-the-way-our-genes-communicate-for-metabolic-and-overall-health/
We are all born with a certain genetic makeup, and science once believed that this blueprint was permanent and unchangeable -- essentially that our DNA dictated our destiny. However, an exciting new field of genetic science is emerging which demonstrates that our gene expression can be influenced and altered for better or worse, based on a number of internal and external triggers. These influences on our genes can change how we age, how our bodies react to lifestyle and environmental factors, our resistance to illness and even how we gain weight, among numerous other influences. The study of how various factors affect our genes is known as "epigenetics."Advances in this field are showing how environment, diet, lifestyle and even thoughts and emotions can have just as powerful an impact on gene function as biological lineage. Small changes in the expression of one master regulator gene, coming from a number of potential influences, can cause a ripple effect and ultimately guide the way your genes, cells, and body systems function and communicate...

How Some Hand Sanitizers Make You Sick
by: Dr. Craig A. Maxwell
http://www.askdrmaxwell.com/2014/02/antibacterial-hand-sanitizers-make-sick/

Triclosan Can Be Harmful to Your Health

You do what you can to stay healthy. Unfortunately, even if you're eating the best diet and working out regularly, you could still be setting yourself up for serious disease from a dangerous toxin you willingly use each and every day.

That toxin is called Triclosan and if you carry around a small bottle of antibacterial gel in your purse or glove compartment, you may be slathering it on each and every day. You'll want to check that anti-bacterial gel, and many other products in your home, to make sure they do not contain this toxic substance.

Alcohol based hand sanitizers, such as those containing ethanol, are much better. There is no doubt that alcohol based hand sanitizers save lives and reduce the transmission of infectious diseases without the dangers associated with Triclosan.

What is Triclosan?

Triclosan is a synthetically-derived antibacterial, antifungal agent. It was first patented in 1966 by the Colgate-Palmolive Corporation. A year later the first Triclosan-based antibacterial bar soap hit the market. During the 1970s, Triclosan-based products were used primarily by surgeons as a pre-operative scrubbing agent. It wasn't until the mid 1980s that antibacterial soap and other products containing Triclosan hit the mainstream.

How Triclosan Became So Popular

In the early to mid-2000s, stories of infectious disease outbreaks such as Severe Acute Respiratory System (SARS) and Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) began frightening people into using as many antimicrobial agents as possible to protect themselves from potential threat.

The recent threat of a Bird Flu epidemic had millions of worried people slathering on gobs of Triclosan-containing antibacterial hand gel each time they left their homes or were exposed to the slightest hint of a sneeze from others.

Triclosan isn't just for hand gels and soap anymore. Today this synthetic antibacterial agent can be found in everything from cosmetics to socks. In 2005, the FDA concluded that the use of Triclosan containing products did not pose a human health hazard. However, other countries, namely Canada, most of Europe, and Japan, have banned the substance, deeming it too toxic for mass consumption.

How Triclosan Works

Triclosan is called a "selectively-toxic chemical." It works on bacteria by blocking the active site of the enoyl-acyl carrier protein reductase (ENR), which is an essential enzyme in fatty acids synthesis. If the bacterium cannot synthesize the fatty acid in a cell, it cannot reproduce and create infection.

This may sound really great on the surface, however, Triclosan and other synthetic antimicrobial agents were only meant to be used in emergency situations, or on a temporary basis. In hospital settings, this synthetic antibacterial agent has been proven to be effective when used in this way.

However, continued use has the exact opposite effect. Overexposure to this chemical wreaks havoc with your body and causes a slow breakdown of your immune system, dependence on the agent, and antibiotic resistance.

How Triclosan is Slowly Destroying Your Health

A study by the FDA showed that households using Triclosan-based products did not see a decrease in bacterial or viral infections. The FDA also concluded that excessive use of Triclosan could create bacterial resistance to antibiotics.

Common health dangers associated with Triclosan include:

Thyroid Disease

Triclosan has chlorinated structures that bind to the thyroid gland, which displaces essential iodine, and causes chronic inflammation. A depleted antioxidant system in the thyroid gland is a leading cause for thyroid diseases such as hyperthyroidism, hyperthyroidism, Grave's disease, and thyroid cancer. Triclosan can also cause liver dysfunction.

Antibiotic Resistance

One of the largest concerns of excessive use of this synthetic antibacterial agent is antibiotic resistance. This occurs when the immune system has built up a tolerance and resistance to an antimicrobial agent. It is then more difficult for conventional antibiotics to treat any serious bacterial outbreak the person may have.

Liver Toxicity

When combined with water, Triclosan produces a type of chloroform gas that is toxic to the liver. Symptoms of liver toxicity include chronic fatigue syndrome, emotional disturbances, digestive problems such as bloating and swelling after a meal, and the inability to lose weight.

Muscle Weakness

According to a study published by the Department of Molecular Biosciences in the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, Triclosan causes muscle weakness and reduced movement in fish. A mouse injected with 1 percent Triclosan experienced heart failure in less than one minute due to an interference with the brain-heart muscle connection.

Autoimmune Disease

Your immune system is designed to protect your body from foreign invaders. When you continue to use Triclosan-based products, your immune system works overtime to protect you. If your immune system remains in the constant "fight or flight" mode, it begins to malfunction, causing autoimmune diseases such as chronic fatigue syndrome, arthritis, and psoriasis. The more toxins you put into your body, the more your immune system won't recognize your healthy tissue and will attack it as a foreign entity.

How to Avoid Triclosan

First and foremost, stop using antibacterial hand gel, dish soap, and hand soap if the label states it contains Triclosan. Secondly, start reading the labels on everything you use. If it contains Triclosan, get rid of it.

It's quite inexpensive and saves a ton of money when you realize just how many uses it has.

To avoid Triclosan in cosmetic products, opt for mineral make-up and natural exfoliants and creams. Baking soda, for example, makes an excellent and cheap skin scrub while virgin coconut oil easily replaces any lotion or cream you're using now.

Healing from Triclosan Toxicity

The best way to improve your immune system and heal from any damage this antimicrobial agent has caused is to eat a whole-food diet and choose whole food supplements.

I have recently created a line of healing nutritional supplements designed to meet your health needs. At Diamond Nutritionals you can choose the nutritional supplement that best suits your needs and those of your family. We offer a complete line of professional grade nutritional and immune-boosting supplements.

In my opinion, you should avoid Triclosan at all costs. Give your system a much-needed break from the influx of toxins into your system. Switch to organic food, natural household cleaners and cosmetics, and Diamond Nutritional's Professional-Grade Supplements.

You'll be amazed at how much better you feel!

Changing the Way Our Genes Communicate
http://www.dreliaz.org/changing-the-way-our-genes-communicate-for-metabolic-and-overall-health/
We are all born with a certain genetic makeup, and science once believed that this blueprint was permanent and unchangeable -- essentially that our DNA dictated our destiny. However, an exciting new field of genetic science is emerging which demonstrates that our gene expression can be influenced and altered for better or worse, based on a number of internal and external triggers. These influences on our genes can change how we age, how our bodies react to lifestyle and environmental factors, our resistance to illness and even how we gain weight, among numerous other influences. The study of how various factors affect our genes is known as "epigenetics."Advances in this field are showing how environment, diet, lifestyle and even thoughts and emotions can have just as powerful an impact on gene function as biological lineage. Small changes in the expression of one master regulator gene, coming from a number of potential influences, can cause a ripple effect and ultimately guide the way your genes, cells, and body systems function and communicate...

HSI e-Alert - Reckless use of chemo is robbing cancer patients
http://www.alternativenaturalremedies.com/news/reckless-use-of-chemo-is-robbing-cancer-patients.php
Dear Reader,

Two weeks ago, I told you about Sarah Hershberger, the 11-year-old Amish girl whose parents took her out of the country to get her treated for her cancer -- without chemo.

The mainstream media lit up with concern for the girl -- at the hands of these dangerous parents of hers.

How dare they risk her life by denying her chemo!

Are they kidding?!

In the past few years, we've discovered that chemo frequently causes secondary cancers, can actually FEED tumors, and that chemo traumatizes the brain for years.

And still, the mainstream wants to force this little girl -- and millions of others -- to take this dangerous "treatment" at all costs.

Now it turns out, "at all costs" may be exactly what doctors are thinking when they prescribe chemo.

Oncologists gone wild
Believe it or not, even with all the dangers and risks, mainstream medicine has decided it's okay to introduce off-label use of chemo.

Off-label use is essentially unregulated use. It means the FDA hasn't approved -- or even studied -- the drug for the use the doctor prescribes it for.

That's why this new information on chemo is so shocking.

Researchers followed prescribing records of 10 chemotherapy drugs. They found that oncologists prescribed the drugs off-label in nearly one-third of all cases!

That's outrageous!

Now, in many of those cases, doctors followed guidelines of the National Comprehensive Care Network. But as Reuters notes, some researchers have criticized NCCN for possible conflicts of interest. So this is a slippery set of guidelines, at best.

But then there's the "loose cannon" 10 percent.

That's right -- doctors are working on a hunch in 10% of these cases. And that's giving doctors the benefit of the doubt. In many instances, they prescribe chemo knowing the odds of success are nil.

But they probably think they can give the patient some hope and the payday isn't too shabby.

So -- 10 percent -- if you're thinking that doesn't sound like much, hang on to your hat. In the course of one year, that meager 10 percent accounted for $2.5 billion in medical bills!

One researcher told Reuters that cancer patients and their doctors are "willing to try things where there isn't as much data as you would like." She says they're, "looking for anything with a benefit."

ANYthing? Well...no.

Most oncologists would never even consider the benefits of intravenous ascorbic acid. IAA has plenty of successful cancer case studies to back up its use. But mainstreamers dismiss it as quackery.

And yet, these doctors are willing to risk billions of their patients' dollars on brutal chemotherapies that don't even have case study support.

So... Who's a quack now?

Jenny Thompson, Director of Health Science Institute, HSI e-Alert

Why Cancer Patients Should Never Rely On Chemotherapy Alone

You probably know that conventional chemotherapy is very limited in what it can do. Most people now understand this. In cases of metastatic cancer (the kind that has spread to other parts of the body), the five-year success rate is in the order of less than 5% even in the best of hospitals. Is that because chemotherapy is so bad? I don't think so. I think there's another reason.

I think it is because conventional oncologists fail to properly combine their chemotherapy with natural treatments. These might include diet and nutrition, chelation therapy, herbal therapy, immune enhancement, hormone replacement, and detoxification. When doctors combine these "alternative" therapies with standard chemotherapy, the results are much better -- more like 30%. A good example of how natural therapies can effectively work with chemotherapy was just recently published. It had to do with chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN). And the results were amazing.

CIPN is a side effect of many chemotherapy drugs. CIPN is a serious and disabling condition in which the patient's hands and feet feel numb and burn. This often leads to difficulty walking and handling objects. It is also a source of pain that interferes with sleep and often requires medications. When a patient has to deal with a difficult problem like metastatic cancer, one of the last things he needs is to have the additional problem of CIPN. But now it looks like there is a very effective way to decrease the chance of CIPN. And it is entirely natural.

The authors of the study searched through all of the published literature between 1973 and 2011. They were looking for placebo controlled studies that looked at whether or not taking vitamin E supplements could prevent CIPN. They found five such studies involving a total of 319 patients. The dose of vitamin E varied between 400 and 800 units per day. On average those patients taking the vitamin E reduced their chances of getting CIPN by 57%. The results were even better with cisplatin.

One of the worst chemotherapy drugs with respect to CIPN are the platin drugs. The most common platin drug is cisplatin. When the researchers looked at the effect of vitamin E on cisplatin alone, they discovered that the results were even better. On average it prevented CIPN 74% of the time.

Sometimes you will hear cancer doctors say that they don't want any of their patients taking vitamins because they might interfere with the chemotherapy. Studies have repeatedly shown that this is just not true. The researchers in this study were quick to point out that the only thing that vitamin E interfered with was the toxicity of the drugs. The efficacy remained the same.

If you or a loved one is getting chemotherapy, I highly recommend that you take 800 units of vitamin E per day. My favorite brand is an excellent form of completely natural vitamin E called Grace Unique E. This is especially true if the drugs you're taking are platin drugs. The most common platin drugs are cisplatin, carboplatin, and oxaliplatin.

Starve Cancer to Death with the Ketogenic Diet

A 65-year-old woman with brain cancer had surgery to remove the tumor, but the operation couldn't remove it all. The woman started following a very specialized diet that was quite high in fat, moderate in protein and very low in carbohydrates. She also had chemotherapy and radiation. After six weeks, a brain scan showed that the rest of the tumor had disappeared. A brain scan five months later showed it was still gone. However, the patient stopped the diet-and a scan three months later showed that the tumor had returned.

Amazing? Yes...and a good example of how this very specific way of eating, called the ketogenic diet, is showing great promise in the fight against certain cancers.

The ketogenic diet is one of the hottest topics on the Bottom Line Web site. If you think that the ketogenic diet might be right for you or a loved one, here's what you need to know-and how to find the experts who can help you get started...

Why Mood Disorders (and Cancer and other illnesses) Should Be Treated From the "Bottom Up" by Dr. David Williams
VOLUME 17 * NO 2 * FEBRUARY 2014 Alternatives Newsletter
Alternatives, call 800-527-3044 or email custsvc@drdavidwilliams.com
Depression, Anxiety, Anger Disorder, ADHD, Depression, Autism, cancer, immune system weakness, and a host of other illnesses whose symptoms are masked in the U.S. by pharmaceuticals are many times less prevalent in other countries who instead treat the underlying cause with organic food, no food dyes, antibiotics, irradiated and sprayed food, artificial sweeteners (such as Splenda, which kills 50% of beneficial bacteria in the intestines, which are 80% of our immune system) and most importantly: healthy bacteria and fermented food.

Dr. Julian Whitaker, M.D., wrote in his medical newsletter: "In 1971 President Richard Nixon made a bold avowal to conquer cancer. Unfortunately, the same percentage of Americans are dying today from this diseases as they were over 30 years ago. In fact cancer has now surpassed heart disease as the number one cause of death for people under 85."

It's important to attack cancer on many sides at the same time: don't put all your eggs in one (or just a few) baskets. Notice how many immune boosters, direct cancer killers (that cause apoptosis of cancer cells, or programmed cell death) that Jerry and I used, and that Webster advises on www.cancertutor.com

Dr. Josef Issels (who incidentally had his clinic shut down, and was persecuted and put in prison for treating terminally-ill cancer patients with a combination of natural and conventional medicine instead of letting them die after the conventional medical establishment washed their hands of them) was able to cure approximately 17% of his cancer patients -- even after they had their immune systems all but destroyed by radiation and chemotherapy. If a person with cancer uses natural methods instead of chemotherapy and radiation, the cure rates are significantly higher, since the body's immune system hasn't been compromised and can help fight the cancer, wherever it might be throughout the body. Not all cancers can be cured, but studies have shown that most cancer patients live longer and have a better quality of life -- even if they do nothing -- than if they subject themselves to conventional medicine's overly-aggressive and mostly ineffective cancer treatments. Better than doing nothing, though, I would do everything I could to modify my diet and lifestyle, and take supplements, herbs, enzymes and immune boosters.

According to Dr. Rowen, killing malignant tumors is usually not difficult: the biggest challenge comes about afterward, to keep tumors from coming back once the patients leave the clinic and resume their normal lifestyles and diets. To prevent cancer's reoccurrence, one must keep the immune system strong with diet, lifestyle, some (not excessive) exercise, nutritional supplementation, and especially, a positive mental attitude.

Researchers find cancer cure - but drug companies won't develop it
by Dr. Robert Rowen

What if Big Pharma came across a synthetic compound that stopped cancer in its tracks? And what if it was nontoxic as well? You'd hear about it before you could blink. Now suppose that researchers actually found a compound that did exactly that, but it was a natural compound that's likely in your refrigerator right now. You wouldn't hear even a whisper about it from the media. Well, it's happened.

University of Missouri researchers found that a bioflavonoid, apigenin, inhibited the growth of highly malignant breast tumors. What's more, it also reduced expression of a key cancer gene. Apigenin is in your refrigerator right now if you have celery, parsley, or a wide variety of other veggies, fruits, and spices.

Here's how effective apigenin is. In this recent study, researchers implanted rodents with a particularly deadly breast tumor cell line. The animals taking apigenin had slower tumor growth. And some even saw their tumors shrink. New cancer-feeding blood vessels shriveled, starving the malignant cells. And they found that apigenin acted against progestin-related/dependent breast cancers. Progestins are petrochemical synthetic versions, a "gift" of Pharma. Research has shown that they cause breast cancer.

This study mirrored another one last year which showed that rats fed the compound developed fewer tumors and a delay in tumor establishment.

The study's co-author, Salman Hyder gave a sad commentary on today's horrible Pharma paradigm. He pointed out that since this is a compound that you can extract from plants (not patentable) we won't see industry putting a dime into research. And since its effects are not specific on any one cancer process, it's not likely that government funding agencies will help either.

I've written extensively about the wonders of bioflavonoids. The late Tom Lahey, who told me about luteolin (in Advanced Memory Formula), also provided me with a wealth of information on bioflavonoid actions against cancer. This included apigenin. Curcumin belongs to this family as does green tea, Seanol and resveratrol. I am observing innovative combinations of bioflavonoids having remarkable effects in a combined approach to cancer.

In addition to the foods I've already mentioned, you'll find apigenin in apples, leeks, onions, broccoli, cherries, grapes, tomatoes, and tea. Note that these plant foods reduce your risk of getting cancer in the first place. Other foods include basil, oregano, cilantro, tarragon, beans, and barley. You'll do very well to include such produce in your daily diet!

Yours for better health and medical freedom,

Simple Plant Kills Up to 98% of Cancer Cells -- And Stops Diabetes
From Dr. Robert Jay Rowen's Second Opinion newsletter
Vol. XXIII, No. 8, August 2013

"I'm always looking for natural substances that throw a "monkey wrench" into the peculiar metabolism of cancer cells. It's vital these substances heal cancer cells and leave normal cells untouched. I've told you about some of my discoveries in the past. They include resveratrol, green tea, Alginol, and others. But today I'm going to tell you about another plant that safely starves cancer cells as efficiently as a powerful chemo drug. In fact, it even works on pancreatic cancer cells, which are particularly difficult to kill. This plant is a common vegetable from Asia called "bitter melon." It is popular among the long-lived population of Okinawa, Japan.

Bitter melon juice diluted to just 5% in water showed remarkable potency in severely damaging all four pancreatic cancer cell lines researchers tested. The bitter melon reduced the viability of two cancer cell lines by 90%, while it knocked off the other two lines by a staggering 98%. And it did so after just 72 hours of treatment! In the past, I've told you about apoptosis. That's nature's way of dealing with wayward or old cells. They simply kill themselves. Bitter melon juice induced this programmed cell death along several different pathways. And even better, it also activated a pathway which knocks out the cancer cells' metabolism of glucose. In other words, it literally starved them of the sugar they need to survive.

Do these lab-dish studies apply to living animals? A resounding yes! University of Colorado researchers gave mice bitter melon at doses easily achievable in humans. The animals had a 64% reduction in pancreatic tumor size without side effects! This level of effectiveness beat the most commonly used chemo drugs for this lethal cancer.

The dose used in mice translates to 6 grams of powder for an average-sized adult (75 kg). Big Pharma is rushing to find patentable petrochemicals to achieve what God put into the bitter melon fruit. You don't need any fancy chemicals to treat cancer.

What's more, the actions of bitter melon may help diabetics as well. Researchers recently found that bitter melon ameliorates metabolic syndrome by its beneficial effects on glucose metabolism. Healing cancer must be multifocal. Eliminate dental infections and toxic dental materials, alkalinize your body, avoid chemical and heavy metal exposure, detoxify, forgive, oxidize the body with oxidation therapy, and give specific nutrients to throw a monkey wrench into cancer's peculiar metabolic pathways.

You can find bitter melon extract at most health food stores and online. Better yet find a grocery store (many Asian markets) that sells it, buy a lot and freeze it. Eat it raw in a smoothie/coleslaw or cook it with coconut oil and curry. Eat (1/4) of a melon twice a day. Pregnant or lactating women probably shouldn't overdo this veggie. Please visit www.youtube.com/ user/RobertRowenMD for some incredible videos featuring patients with cancer. REF: Science News, March 12, 2013."

Avoid all sweeteners except a small amount of either steam-distilled stevia (www.emperorsherbologist.com) or Erythritol (www.iherb.com sells 5lb bulk). The reason you have to use even these safe sweeteners judiciously is that when your tongue tastes something sweet, it tells your pancreas to churn out insulin in preparation for sugar, and when comes, you get hypoglycemia (low blood sugar, dizziness, weakness, etc.)

Have We Finally Found a Real "Silver Bullet" That Cures Cancer?
Dr. Robert Jay Rowen's Second Opinion Newsletter
Vol. XXIV, No. 2 February 2014

There definitely could be a "silver bullet" to end the cancer nightmare, according to new research. And, surprisingly, I am in agreement with the mainstream.

Cancer is a systemic disease, though currently treated conventionally as a local problem you carve out. Cells that degenerate into cancer have to make many genetic switches to "make it". Even after a cell turns to cancer, the abnormal cell must evade your immune system, the last line of defense. A functioning immune system will pick off cancer cells before they pick you off.

But cancer cells have learned to confuse your immune cells. Cancer cells express a protein called CD47 in large amounts in their membranes. This protein tells your macrophages (immune cells), "Do not eat me." It serves much like a "cloaking device" of the Romulan starships in the old Star Trek series.

Researchers in the lab of Irving Weissman at Stanford have treated mice with an antibody that blocks and hides the CD47 marker. It effectively hides the CD47 and calls on the immune system to kill the cancer. Now, the lab has recently tested this in cultured human cancer cells. They found that by blocking the CD47 "do not eat me signal," the macrophages did, indeed, attack and eat the cancer cells. But without the antibody, the macrophages ignored the cancer cells completely.

In the living mice so treated, implanted human cancers all had shrinkage of the tumors, no spread to lymph nodes, and remained cancer-free for four months (that's a long time for a rodent) after the treatment was stopped. From an editorial in Science, "In mice given human bladder cancer tumors, for example, 10 of 10 untreated mice had cancer that spread to their lymph nodes. Only one of 10 mice treated with anti-CD47 had a lymph node with signs of cancer."

This is exactly the type of research that should be done; not research with poisons. I've maintained for 30 years that cancer is a failure of the immune system.

That failure is due in part to the cancer blinding itself to your immune cells. And, this work adds validation to the work of William Donald Kelley, DDS and his protg Nick Gonzales, MD of Manhattan. Kelley and Gonzales successfully treat (treated) cancer with proteolysis pancreatic enzymes. These enzymes may eat away the immune "cloaking" of cancer, enabling your immune cells to go and eat them up. It fits my observations of some cancers, even in late stage, disappearing with immuneenhancing oxidation and nutritional therapies.

Conventional medicine is likely to move to a single antibody to "cloak" the cloaking protein. This may work, but as a single protein, it also may have significant toxicity as does other single antibody immune treatments. Also, cancer may simply outwit a single antibody by making other cloaking proteins, much like insects outwit pesticides. Nevertheless, I really like this line of research and will keep you posted. I don't think that there will ever be a "one size fits all" approach to cancer. We have seen some stunning successes, but have our "failures" as well. If you have cancer, please see an integrative physician who can work with your immune system with a variety of approaches, including nutritional and oxidation.

At this moment, there is available a compound called GcMAF which I have previously told you about in the December 2008 issue of Second Opinion. Cancer cells secrete an enzyme called nagalase, which pulls a sugar molecule off a key protein called Gc. This process inactivates the cancer-hunting macrophages so that they cannot see the tumor cells (just like CD47). A discovery found that GcMAF inactivates nagalase. The Gc protein is no longer inactivated, enabling immune cells to see and attack cancer cells right in your body.

At the time I wrote my original piece, GcMAF wasn't available. It now is in Japan at www.saisei-mirai.or.jp/ gan/macrophage_eng.html. You also can find it at www.gc-maf.de. Patients, with the assistance of their integrative doctors, can order the product and have their doctor administer it. This will be an exciting addition to our therapies, most of which are designed to enhance immune function.

Why vegetarians can still get diabetes and other diseases
Volume 11, Issue 15 February 19, 2014

As you may know, I'm one of the only newsletter writers who promotes the Living Foods diet. This diet is made up primarily of raw fruits and vegetables. While many have said this diet won't work, the proof that it does continues to come out. In fact, each passing year brings new proof of my long-term observations and conclusions. Now there's yet more proof that the heat you use on your foods does, indeed, cause you much greater risk for diabetes and vascular disease.

This new proof comes from a new randomized, cross-over diet study on 62 volunteers. Cross-over studies are great in that they allow the studied groups to switch roles. That adds a lot of significance to the findings.

The researchers in this study evaluated the effects of Maillard reaction products (MRP) on the volunteers. MRP is a name for a chemical process by which heat generates literally hundreds or more of a complex mixture of compounds responsible for a huge range of odors and flavors. Heating starches to high temperatures creates acrylamide. I've told you in the past about how this compound can increase your risk of cancer. Flavor scientists have used heat over years to create artificial flavors, which you'll find in processed foods.

The diets of the two groups differed only in the type and amount of heat inflicted on the foods they ate. One group steamed their food and the other used high temperature cooking. After one month, those consuming high-heat treated diets (compared to steaming) saw significantly lower insulin sensitivity. They also had much lower plasma concentrations of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin C, and vitamin E. These findings were highly significant.
At the same time, plasma triglycerides increased 5% and cholesterol jumped 9%. The authors concluded that consuming high heat-treated foods increases your risk of type-2 diabetes and vascular disease. Imagine if Big Pharma created a drug that dropped your cholesterol 9% and was 100% safe. What an international stir that would make! But you can do it right in your own kitchen! And for free!

How to flush metals from your body and make yourself healthier and more youthful at the same time!
No painful or uncomfortable treatments involved... just this simple remedy

Find Out What It Is Here
I'm not a madman. I'm a maverick who looks outside the box. I've been to India where I've seen hard-working vegetarian peasants losing limbs to diabetes in their 30s. And no, they were not obese. They cook their foods to oblivion in oil.

We've known for years that heat destroys crucial vitamins like C, B6, and now E. It also destroys fatty acids, denatures proteins, and limits mineral availability. But we are now getting an inkling of how heated foods causes yet deeper and subtler damage. Heat creates compounds not found in nature. These compounds could be highly immune activating, carcinogenic, toxic oxidants, oxidized lipids (the underlying cause of vascular disease) dangerous amines, and more.

I urge you to move toward the Living Foods Diet. Science is proving me right month after month. It's no wonder that I see miracle after miracle in my practice. But they're not "miracles." It's simply the restoration of your body's own healing processes as God designed, when you feed it properly.

Please strive to make uncooked living foods up to 70-80% of your diet, even more in the warm months, while perhaps less in the cold months. Use only water to cook with. That limits the heat to 212 F at the most. That upper limit of heat may be below the threshold for the most toxic chemical reactions. Never cook with oil. There's just no control for how hot it gets.

Yours for better health and medical freedom,

Robert J. Rowen, MD

Stop The Spread Of Cancer With Chili Peppers
http://www.naturalhealth365.com/food_news/0926_capsaicin_stop_cancer.html

Did you know the heat you feel after biting into a hot chili pepper is good for you? The compound capsaicin -- that causes this pungent heat -- is also found to kill cancer cells. In fact, in the last few years, the research on chili peppers has focused on many organs including, the pancreas, brain, prostate, colon and breast.

Do chili peppers harm healthy cells?

To date, there has been many studies on chili pepper's ability to fight off cancer cells in many cancer affected organs. Among them, the 2006 study on prostate cancer cells drew more interest from researchers. Experiments, on the compound capsacisin reveal that this compound specifically targeted the tumors and cancerous cells without affecting the healthy cells.

It was found that capsaicin was able to do this by interfering with protein synthesis of the cancer cells, degradation of the cell DNA and interfering with cell transcription mechanisms of cancerous cells. While capsaicin affected the mitochondrial pathway of the cancer cells, there was no interference in the activity of healthy cells. This was observed in cancer-induced albino rats in lab studies.

A 2006 study published in Cancer Research revealed that capsaicin was effective in inhibiting prostate cancer cells. The study found that capsaicin promoted automated cell death in primary types of prostate cancer cell lines -- as well as in cancer cells caused by hormones.

Furthermore, capsaicin decreased the expression of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) and inhibited the ability of the dihydrotestosterone to activate PSA. When lab animals received four weeks of treatment with capsaicin, it was observed that prostate cancer growth and size significantly decreased.
Chili peppers do more than just prevent cancer

Compounds in chili peppers have been associated with multiple benefits like positive immune health, weight loss, lower risk of diabetes, and heart-healthy effects. A randomized, cross-over study among 27 healthy subjects revealed that consuming freshly chopped chili prevented the oxidation (free radical damage) to the fat cells -- which was a crucial factor in decreasing heart problems.

Capsaicin is also anti-inflammatory in nature. It inhibits substance P, a neuropeptide associated with inflammation that results in pain, heart diseases and other conditions. Because of this property, it has been used in a variety of chemotherapy studies for pain relief and also in many treatments involving nerve fiber disorders, conditions like psoriasis, arthritis plus many more.

Researchers say, the hotter the pepper, the higher is its capsaicin content, good examples include habanero and scotch bonnet peppers followed by jalapeno.
Ways to use chili peppers in your next recipe

Chili peppers can give any bland recipe an interesting taste. So, the next time you saut vegetables in a stir fry try adding some chili peppers to accentuate its health benefits as well as spice up a bit. Other ways to super-charge your recipes include, adding minced chili peppers to plain yoghurt as a salad dressing; in salsa for extra hot taste; pureeing a small amount with tomatoes or olives to give a surprising twist to your recipes.

Just be very careful when you are handling fresh chili peppers, direct contact with skin, lips and eyes can cause a severe burning sensation. Be sure to use cooking gloves instead of bare hands when using them for cooking.

Consuming chili peppers, in moderation, is considered safe, however if you are allergic to peppers or night shade family, it is a good idea to keep away from this spice. Another important point to keep in mind is to buy organic hot peppers instead of conventionally grown ones. According to the Environmental Working Group's 2013 report, non-organic hot peppers are among the most toxic (pesticide sprayed) items on the market.

Toxic BPA Substitute -- BPS Chemical More Dangerous than BPA
http://naturalsociety.com/toxic-bpa-substitute-bps-chemical/

The Story of Cosmetics, released on July 21st, 2010, examines the pervasive use of toxic chemicals in our everyday personal care products, from lipstick to baby shampoo. Produced with Free Range Studios and hosted by Annie Leonard, the seven-minute film by The Story of Stuff Project reveals the implications for consumer and worker health and the environment, and outlines ways we can move the industry away from hazardous chemicals and towards safer alternatives. The film concludes with a call for viewers to support legislation aimed at ensuring the safety of cosmetics and personal care products.

However, pesticide contamination is another important issue when it comes to juicing, since you're using higher quantities of fruits and vegetables than you would normally eat whole. The Environmental Working Group's Shopper's Guide (http://www.foodnews.org/) is an excellent resource to help you figure out what to buy organic, and what conventionally-grown veggies you can get away with buying with the least amount of health risk. The guide is now also available as an iPhone application.

Unapproved genetically-modified rice trials in U.S. have contaminated the world's rice supply
http://www.naturalnews.com/z041054_GM_rice_food_apocalypse_USDA.html
New evidence has emerged suggesting that the entire global supply of rice may have already been contaminated by unapproved, genetically-modified (GM) rice varieties manufactured by the American multinational corporation Bayer CropScience...

Here's a list of relative mercury contamination in wild fish:
http://www.nrdc.org/health/effects/mercury/walletcard.pdf
Tuna (especially larger tuna including Albacore), King Mackerel, and other large fish are much higher in mercury and other heavy metals, which accumulate in the fish over its lifetime. The types of fish that are higher in omega-3 are healthier for you (smaller Salmon, Sardines and Anchovies), and wild-caught or line-caught are much healthier choices than farmed fish (usually fed corn meal, which is high in omega-6 pro-inflammatory oil, even if its "organic", ground up smaller fish, hogs, etc. which are full of heavy metals, PCBs and other toxins). Wild fish eat krill, plankton and algae, which is why they are high in healthy astaxanthin and omega-3 oils.

There is no end to the tricks that endocrine disruptors can play on our bodies: increasing production of certain hormones; decreasing production of others; imitating hormones; turning one hormone into another - and so much more.

The EWG/KAB Dirty Dozen list includes BPA, phthalates and other endocrine disruptors that are widespread in consumer products such as plastic containers, food cans and fragrances. The list also includes common contaminants that many people don't realize can be hormone disruptors, not only those familiar toxins - arsenic, mercury and lead - but other, less familiar chemicals such as glycol ethers and perfluorinated chemicals. The guide is intended for consumers of all ages, particularly young people who are most at risk from these dangerous substances.

EWG researchers compiled the new Dirty Dozen list by scouring scientific literature and identifying the most hazardous and widely-used hormone-disrupting chemicals that pollute the environment and ultimately our bodies. These substances are frequently found in food, water and consumer products. Studies have linked them to a wide array of health problems, including cancer, birth defects, lowered sperm count, lowered IQ, obesity and thyroid disease.

This is a must-see list of chemicals to avoid - check it out today!

Are these dangerous toxins in your skin cream?

Take a look at the label on your jar of skin cream.

Do you see any of these ingredients?

Methyl, Propyl, Butyl, and Ethyl Paraben
Propylene Glycol
DMDM Hydrantoin
Sodium Laurel Sulfate
Synthetic Colors and Fragrances
Triethanolamine (TEA)
Diethanolamine (DEA)
Imidazolidinyl Urea and Diazolidinyl Urea (also called Germall II and Germall 115)
Behentrimonium Chloride

These common skin care ingredients are a toxic collection of petroleum byproducts, chemicals and sulfates that can cause allergic skin reactions... hair loss... liver and kidney damage... headaches... dizziness... and even certain cancers.

Now, this is a big deal - because...

everything you put on your skin is absorbed into your body and ends up in your bloodstream.

The medical world already knows this. That's why you're seeing so many medications available now in patch form.

The same way your skin soaks up the medicine in those patches, it absorbs all of the ingredients in your skin cream - including the toxic ones. And that can cause health problems for you down the road. But that's not all...

These harsh skin care chemicals can also destroy your complexion - and make you look years older.

That's the exact opposite of the result you're hoping for!

It's time to ditch the toxin-laden, over-hyped, anti-aging creams...

Claim a FREE Special Report that reveals how breakthrough plant stem cell technology - combined with 36 other "all-natural" skin-restoring nutrients - can help you smooth away the appearance of lines and wrinkles... replenish your skin's moisture... erase dark circles and age spots... boost your skin's firmness and elasticity... and take YEARS off your appearance - SAFELY without the complexion destroying chemicals.

Are Dangerous Ingredients in Your Facial Cream Actually AGING You?
FREE SPECIAL REPORT reveals a safe, NATURAL way to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles... replenish your skin's moisture... erase dark circles and age spots... boost your skin's firmness and elasticity -- and take a full decade off yourpearance!
That anti-aging cream sitting on your bathroom sink was hailed as your "answer" to glowing, moist, wrinkle-free skin.

Probably not.

When you look into the mirror, you can't help but feel disappointed. Your complexion is still too dull... your wrinkles are still too pronounced... and the skin at your jaw line is still sagging more than you would like.

Your anti-aging cream is letting you down -- and it may be worse than you think...

Hidden inside most skincare products are dangerous chemicals and synthetic ingredients.

Take a good look at the label on your anti-aging cream. You may be shocked to find:

* Methyl, Proply, Butyl and Ethyl Paraben -- These highly toxic parabens are an inexpensive way to inhibit microbial growth -- and extend the shelf life of your cream. The trouble is... they also mimic estrogen, which can throw your hormonal balance out of whack and trigger potentially serious problems with your reproductive system.
* Propylene Glycol -- This popular synthetic ingredient is actually a petroleum by-product that's also used to de-ice planes! It can cause allergic reactions, skin irritations, and even liver abnormalities and kidney damage.
* Sodium Laurel Sulfate -- Used for its foaming abilities, this highly toxic substance penetrates your skin's moisture barrier, which lets other dangerous chemicals in to do an untold amount of damage. Sodium Laurel Sulfate has also been found to cause urinary tract, bladder and kidney infections... eye irritations... genital disorders... hair loss... and allergic reactions.
* Triethanolamine (TEA)/Diethanolamine (DEA) -- These hormone-disrupting chemicals are bad news. Especially DEA, which has been linked to kidney, liver and other organ damage... anemia... nerve damage... and even death in lab animals.
Skincare products containing ingredients like these don't only hurt your health. They can also destroy your complexion -- and make you look years older than you actually are...

Dude, That Isn't Wax On Your Apple!
http://realitybloger.wordpress.com/2012/01/08/that-isn-wax-on-your-apple/

Fancy yourself a vegetarian or vegan?

Think that the label that says "organically grown" has anything to do with the packaging, storage, and transport of that product to stores?

What if I told you that cow, pig, and chicken collagen is now used in place of wax on your fruits and vegetables, among many other things much worse than you can probably imagine?

And what if then I told you, as with most atrocities that happen now-a-days, that this is all approved by the FDA...

Since the early 12th century, there has been a tradition of applying wax onto the skins of fruits and vegetables for longer storage life. Today, that tradition is being carried on with a whole new generation of chemicals and compounds that are genetically designed to accomplish the same goal. But in these modern times, the health and well-being of the consumer of that apple is not necessarily the goal of this unnatural, inorganic process.

Bottom line... your produce is being dipped and sprayed with an experimental host of holy horrors in the name of "food safety" and longer shelf-life. Prepare yourself to be shocked and amazed that our Federal agency that is designed to protect us, the Food and Drug Administration, is allowing these dangerous and unhealthy practices to be perpetrated on an unwitting public, all in the name of profits.
This video was recently posted to Youtube, showing a woman peeling off of her freshly bought supermarket romaine lettuce what appears to be a plastic coating, similar to the type one would peal off of the screen of a new electronic gadget. She has no idea what she has discovered...

It's also important to remember that not all organic compounds are good for us either.
For instance, lead is a naturally-occuring compound and completely organic and it's deadly to humans. The same goes for the leaves of rhubarb plants, arsenic found in many fruit pits, and mistletoe to name a few.

Do You Know Which Foods Are Genetically Engineered?
Download our free Guide or get it for your iPhone or Android!
CFS GMO 2014 PDF

Do you know which supermarket foods are genetically engineered? This is probably the most urgent question the public has about these novel foods. Opinion polls show that up to 90 percent of the American public wants GE foods labeled. But despite this overwhelming demand, almost no foods on U.S. grocery shelves reveal their secret, genetically engineered ingredients.

That's why we created the True Food Shoppers Guide to Avoiding Genetically Engineered Food fourteen years ago! We believe everyone has the right to know what's in the food we purchase and feed to our families. While we work hard to pass mandatory GE food labeling at the state and federal level, until there's labeling, our Shoppers Guide can help you navigate the aisles with confidence.

We've seen that our government, under pressure from the biotechnology industry, has not required the labeling of GE foods. And the biotech industry does not voluntarily identify them, fearing, probably correctly, that the majority of Americans would avoid GE foods if given a choice. As a result, the U.S. public has been deprived of its right to choose whether to buy and consume these engineered foods. However, this is not the case with most of our major trading partners around the globe who have instituted mandatory labeling of all GE foods and ingredients.

Our True Food Shoppers Guide to Avoiding GE Foods is the first of its kind, first published in October of 2000. In fact, the Shoppers Guide is what launched the True Food Network!

The Guide is designed to help you reclaim your right to know about the foods you are buying, and help you find and avoid GE foods.

How Cigarettes Smoke and Chemtrails Contribute to Worsened Health
http://naturalsociety.com/cigarette-smoke-chemtrails-contribute-worsened-health/
Did you know that cigarette smoke AND chemtrails are poisoning your body with toxins and heavy metals?

There has been some decline in cigarette smoking in the USA, but with all the known health issues associated with smoking cigarettes, it seemed there should be almost no new domestic smokers at all. But the power of advertising has prevailed, even more so in third world countries with less restrictions on cigarette advertising.
Is it the Tobacco Plant, or Something Else?

If you're a non-smoker, consider the second hand smoke cautionary principle of non-smoking areas to be real and not just a silly rule against smokers. Avoid enclosed areas where people smoke.

Indigenous groups in remote areas and American Indians, prior to their displacement and genocide, used natural tobacco without 600 chemicals additives that create a virtual freebasing delivery of the addictive stimulant nicotine, ensuring consumers would be addicted to chain smoking while constantly increasing their bodies' toxic loads.

The Department of Health and Human Services had approved 599 chemical additives to cigarettes by 1994. Among them are ammonia compounds to create a nicotine freebase effect. Then there are the toxic additives to the paper to make it burn evenly. Here's a list.
http://quitsmoking.about.com/cs/nicotineinhaler/a/cigingredients.htm

In 2010, legislation was passed in 49 states to start putting fire safe cigarettes (FSC) on the market as all the current ones sell out. The FSC's papers contain a toxic chemical used for rug glue to ensure that cigarettes go out when not being puffed.

Read: 7 Detrimental Effects of Smoking
http://naturalsociety.com/the-detrimental-effects-of-smoking/

Even before all this chemical craziness, tobacco was grown commercially with phosphate fertilizers, causing tobacco plants to absorb radioactive isotopes of polonium 210. Puff by puff, those isotopes accumulate in smokers' lungs with increased radioactive residues that have long "half-lives".
http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=radioactive-smoke#comment-03

In addition to the 600 chemicals, 45 of which are carcinogens, recent research has discovered cadmium is in cigarette smoke. Cadmium is a heavy metal with a half-life of 10 to 30 years residence in human tissue, and it easily surpasses toxic levels.
http://www.cadmium.org/pg_n.php?id_menu=5

What Do Chemtrials Have to Do with this Issue?
Few mention chemtrails or aerosol geoengineering exposure because most deny their existence. Deny them all you want, but the heavy metal nanoparticles have been trapped in ground level water or air traps after heavy chemtrailing include, among others, barium, aluminum, and cadmium.

Taking in those heavy metals through breathing directly affects the sensitive lung tissues and bypasses a majority of the immune system's protective organs. Retired neurosurgeon and author Dr. Russell Blaylock has voiced concerns over chemtrail aluminum nanoparticles that are breathed in and make their way into the central nervous system and brain. Cadmium breathed in through the lungs deposits 90% of its content into organ tissues.
http://tv.naturalsociety.com/neurosurgeon-explains-detox-chemtrail-poisons/
http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=X3lW-TGGlk0

Cadmium creates weak bones, kidney failure, liver damage, is associated with cataract growth, and irritates the bronchial passages and lungs toward emphysema and lung cancer. And it's carcinogenic. Access a study on that here.
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19523218

What You Can Do About These Hazards
The slang term "cancer sticks" for cigarettes is truly appropriate. To get off the smoking habit and/or repair lung damage, consider herbalist and naturopath Dr. Richard Shulze's approach with lobelia from the "Shulze method".
http://www.care2.com/c2c/groups/disc.html?gpp=14557&pst=1165926

When it comes to chemtrails, the first rule is to come out of denial, actually investigate, and acknowledge their reality. Google chemtrails and/or aerosol geoengineering and research the photos and videos to see the difference between chemtrails and contrails. Then begin watching your sky objectively.

You can protect yourself from those toxic nanoparticles by detoxing heavy metals often. My favorites are lots of chlorella, fresh organic cilantro, and cliniptilolite zeolite powder (not capsules or liquids). Here are 6 foods for natural heavy metal chelation.
http://naturalsociety.com/6-foods-natural-heavy-metal-chelation/

Volvic (brand name) unflavored, unsweetened mineral water that contains silicic acid, a soluble form of silica, is recommended for removing aluminum from the brain. It's pricey, and only some health food stores carry it, but it's available online. A five day detox with 1.5 liters daily is recommended... (Excerpt: full article at above link)

Vladimir Putin Says Russia Must Protect its Citizens from GMOs
http://naturalsociety.com/vladimir-putin-says-russia-must-protect-citizens-gmos-stand-wto/

Russian President Putin on GMO's: "Russia needs to protect its citizens from GMOs. People should be protected from harmful products, or products that have "unidentified and unforeseen consequences for humans," especially when used for food."-- He got this right!

Sometimes it seems our country has traded places with the cold war communists of days past. We may not agree with everything that Putin does in the name of Russia, but at least he is willing to do what our President is not in the US -- protect his people from genetically modified foods.

Putin believes that he can keep GMOs out of his country, even while staying in compliance with the World Trade Organization's (WTO) commandments. (http://www.realfarmacy.com/putin-gmos/) In a meeting addressing the members of the Board of the Russian Federation Council he stated:

"We need to properly construct our work so that it is not contrary to our obligations under the WTO. But even with this in mind, we nevertheless have legitimate methods and instruments to protect our own market, and above all citizens."

He reminded the board that is wasn't so long ago that the issue of GMOs was addressed. He also pointed out that with current government regulations, it wasn't even certain how much genetically altered food or seed had already entered Russia.

The WTO is a big pusher of genetically modified crops. (http://www.wto.org/english/tratop_e/sps_e/sps_agreement_cbt_e/c8s1p1_e.htm) However, under the current provisions of the organization, and admitted on their own site:

Read: Russia Considers Complete Ban on GM Food Production
http://naturalsociety.com/russia-plans-complete-ban-gmo-food/

"Countries could also argue that relevant scientific evidence is insufficient, and adopt a provisional measure according to Article 5.7, based on the available pertinent information. They would then be obliged to actively seek the additional information needed for a more objective risk assessment, and to review the measure within a reasonable period of time. What might be "reasonable" would have to be determined on a case-by-case basis."

Some countries, though, are not given entrance to the WTO based on their refusal of GMOs. Serbia is one of them. This is a private organization which, like the biotech companies currently trying to dominate agriculture, have undue influence and power over world industry. A three-man tribunal (http://www.globalresearch.ca/wto-gmo-and-total-spectrum-dominance/2202) held by the WTO in Geneva Switzerland almost a decade ago, for example, was heralded as a warning to small farmers and historic food-growing traditions that shunned genetically modified crops and overturned moratoriums on GM planting:

"[this meeting]. . .could open the floodgates to the forced introduction of genetically-manipulated plants and food products-- GMO, or genetically-modified organisms as they are technically known-- into the world's most important agriculture production region, the European Union."

Sure enough, this has come to be true.

Meanwhile, our politicians are supporting the WTO, Monsanto, and Dow, et al., and the crazy, paid-off scientists who have eaten too much of their own GMO to know their rear-ends from a carrot top are still pushing their wares, though it causes cancer and reproductive failure. At least Putin is protecting his people from poison.

Reports Expose Foods with Pesticides Causing Serious Developmental Neurotoxicity
http://naturalsociety.com/eu-food-safety-agency-warns-us-pesticides/

While other countries are busy limiting the use of certain pesticides, the US food industry is not only allowing them, but putting them in baby food. According to the EFSA, Europe's largest food safety agency, two pesticides -- acetamiprid and imidacloprid - have the potential to damage the "developing human nervous system," and particularly, the brain. They have also been credited with contributing to the decimation of honey bees around the world.
The pesticides acetamiprid and imidacloprid need tighter restrictions. They say these two pesticides, commonly found in conventionally-grown US crops, can have serious health repercussions and must be cut back.

Earlier this year, the US Dept. of Agriculture tested fruits and vegetables for these very same pesticides and found them to be prevalent.

"American parents should be outraged. For years, children in the U.S. have been eating foods contaminated with these two pesticides even though there was little or no research to prove that they wouldn't harm children's health," said co-founder of the Environmental Working Group, Ken Cook. (http://www.ewg.org/release/european-food-regulators-warn-health-risks-pesticides-commonly-contaminate-many-us-fruits) "This latest news out of the European Union is precisely why EWG issues its annual Shopper's Guide to Pesticides, (http://www.ewg.org/foodnews/) because many of these chemicals that were once thought to be safe turn out later to present a potential risk to people, particularly kids."

The USDA detected imidacloprid on about 22 percent of tested conventionally-grown produce between 2006 and 2011. Those with the most imidacloprid included:

Broccoli (60 percent)
Cauliflower (59 percent)
Grapes (51 percent)
Spinach (48 percent)
Lettuce (34 percent)
Potatoes (33 percent)

For acetamiprid, 10 percent of tested produce came back with positive results. The produce where it was found most frequently included:

Summer squash -- zucchini and yellow squash (51 percent)
Apples (29 percent)
Pears (27 percent)
Celery (19 percent)
Collard greens (17 percent)

Further, in 2010 and 2011, the USDA detected acetamiprid on more than one-fourth of the pears used to make baby food.

"For parents who have been able to follow the old adage, 'don't panic, buy organic,' this news from European regulators and USDA laboratories is further reason to justify the value of their investment in their children's health," Cook added.

The sickening overuse of pesticides has led to countless environmental and health issues both in the U.S. and on a global scale. The effects of pesticides range from infertility and birth defects to diabetes and cancer. (http://naturalsociety.com/7-nasty-effects-of-pesticides-in-food-exposure/) What's more, these hundreds of millions of pounds of pesticides can't be washed off! (http://naturalsociety.com/7-nasty-effects-of-pesticides-in-food-exposure/) There is no eliminating pesticides from our foods once they are sprayed onto our plants, but as if that weren't enough, now companies like Monsanto are 'breeding pesticides' right into our food crops with genetically modified organisms.

The solution? A step toward organic farming and a serious hiatus from conventional pesticide use.

10 Ways to Reduce Radiation from Cell Phone Use
http://naturalsociety.com/8-ways-reduce-radiation-cell-phone-use/
The world loves its cell phones- so much so that there are more cell phones on this planet than people! While these technological devices can offer incredible service and ease in a hectic, modern world, they can also be a serious health hazard.
Cell phones emit radiofrequency energy, a form of non-ionizing radiation. Our bodies absorb this radiation and have a difficult time processing it -- leading to numerous bodily complications. One study found that 10 years of cellphone use resulted in an average 290% increased risk of brain tumor development. Interestingly, the tumor development was found on the side of the head in which the cellphone was most used.
And while everyone's soft tissues are especially (negatively) affected by cell phone use, due to developing organs, lower bone density of the skull, lower body weight, and a less effective blood brain barrier, children are very vulnerable to cell phone radiation...

Unsafe snacks? New "Natural" Doritos contains yeast extract
http://www.naturalnews.com/z019355_grocery_warning_Doritos.html
Yeast extract is a flavor-enhancing additive that many food manufacturers use in place of MSG. The problem is that yeast extract is a hidden source of MSG (monosodium glutamate), according to my sources (see below).
MSG, you may know, is classified as an excitotoxin by Dr. Russell Blaylock, who is a doctor, author, and expert on chemicals that damage the nervous system. MSG is well known to cause migraine headaches, seizures, and other nervous system disorders. Dr. Blaylock's research also shows that MSG damages the endocrine system and causes obesity due to impaired appetite control regulation (causes you to be unable to stop eating).
Doctors and authors who are warning people about yeast extract include Dr. Gary Null, Dr. Julian Whitaker, Dr. George R. Schwartz, Phyllis Balch, Dr. Alexander Mauskop and even the Life Extension Foundation (sources cited below).
Yeast extract is also used in so-called "natural" veggie burger products sold in grocery stores and health food stores. In fact, yeast extract is the No. 1 flavor additive of choice for food manufacturers who don't want to list MSG on their labels. Don't trust the labels that say "all natural" on the front. Read the ingredients and look for yeast extract.
TruthInLabeling.org lists yeast extract as an ingredient that always contains MSG: http://www.truthinlabeling.org/hiddensources.html

Cancer treatment found in a tree
http://www.naturalnews.com/z044577_cancer_treatment_tree_bark_Pau_darco.html
The Lapacho tree has been studied for many years by cultures around the globe. It is an evergreen tree from South America that produces a type of bark that has been claimed to cure or prevent cancer, along with other illnesses. The scientific name is Tabebuia avellanedae, and the tea that is made from this bark is often referred to as "Pau d'arco," though many alternative names have been used.

The University of Maryland found that this specific tea, or bark extract, has anticancer properties, as well as anti-inflammatory, antiparasitic, antifungal and antimicrobial properties. There has not been any well-known testing on humans, but studies have already proven that this particular bark provides a stimulation of immune system cells known as macrophages. Additionally, this bark has been reported to kill lung cancer cells and liver cancer cells that were grown and analyzed in a test-tube study.

The tea, often called Taheebo tea, is hard to mix with water, requiring up to 20 minutes of varying heat and boiling measures, but many people have reported this particular tea to have cured them of their health ailments. One website reports a testimonial that claims this tea to have cured a man diagnosed with lymphoma, and who had only a matter of months to live. In 2009, Anna Hodgekiss with the Daily Mail reported a woman who had been diagnosed with Crohn's disease and who took it upon herself to test many different barks for a cure. She did not specify the particular bark she found successful, but she has already sold it to a pharmaceutical company, going to show that bark is a form of treatment in which people can place their trust.

The typical uses of Pau d'arco, listed by the University of Maryland, include treatment of cancer, candidiasis, influenza, parasitic disease, herpes and bacterial infection. Louise Tenney writes in the Cancer News Journal, that this tree bark, sometimes called Ipe Roxo, has curative powers that have proved countless times to have healed thousands of people. It very well might be that the cure for cancer is found in this tree bark.

Distributors of this bark reported that a client cured his dog of a skin condition with the tea. The owner himself claims this tea cured colon cancer in his own father. Although this tree is now endangered, the main producers of the tea instructs people to use their signature method when stripping the bark from the tree so that it does not kill the species but leaves it able to produce more bark for future harvests.

Downside of things
One of the drawbacks of this tea is reported by the American Cancer Society (ACS). High levels of the bark extract have the potential to be poisonous. One study, however, conducted in the 70s by the National Cancer Institute, found no toxic effects on liver or kidney tissue. The ACS also claims that many people are selling derivatives and false variations of the bark. There was a study in Canada that tested 12 products claiming to be Pau d'arco and found only one of these products to have contained lapachol, which is the pure ingredient of Pau d'arco.

The University of Maryland cautions consumers that this bark in heavy doses can cause unmanageable bleeding, while some proponents actually claim this is a blood builder. It is hard to tell how beneficial this herb exactly is, but it might prove more helpful than harsher Western medical treatments.

Book Exposes Cancer Industry & Obamacare
by Ken Anton
http://henrymakow.com/2014/03/Book-Exposes-Cancer-Industry%20.html

Cancer is a cash cow for dozens of Illuminati corporations. The American Cancer Society has over $1 Billion in its coffers. A new book exposes the fraud and reviews the legitimate alternative
cures.

"In spite of hundreds of billions contributed to the cause over the past 4 decades, the survival rate shows little improvement. Neither a cure nor prevention is the priority any longer, because the real money is made from treating cancer."

The Rockefeller-initiated medical cartel which revamped US medicine in the early 1900's has grown into an enormous bureaucracy comprising doctors, hospitals, support services and government regulators like the FDA, NIH and CDC, all working closely with Big Pharma to ensure their steadily increasing profits at the expense of Americans.

Despite the efforts of the cartel to suppress natural cancer therapies, many have succeeded in actually curing thousands of terminal patients so that they can return to a normal life. Juxtaposing these alternative therapies against traditional therapy is the focus of the book.

As far as the 'War on Cancer', even with hundreds of billions contributed to the cause over the past 4 decades, the survival rate shows little improvement. Neither a cure nor prevention is the priority any longer, because the real money is made from treating cancer.

In place of the medical cartel-devised Obamacare, a new system designed from the ground up is needed to create truly affordable healthcare. It's necessary to take a stand, don't wait for armed IRS agents to come knocking at your door.

"Cancer Vortex" revolves around three dramatic stories concerning Janet Franklin, Frank Rider and Thomas Hartwell who try natural or orthodox therapies in their struggle against cancer. Interleaved with these stories are factual reports about the Medical Cartel.

Tribute is paid to visionaries who made major contributions towards our understanding of cancer, especially Dr Otto Warburg, Nobel Prize winner and biochemist who discovered the generic cause of cancer in the 1920's. Other great innovators in cancer research and promotion of natural cures are Dean Burk, Max Gerson, Stanislaw Burzynski and Ernst Krebs Jr who each achieved extraordinary breakthroughs.

OBAMACARE

The Medical Cartel favors dogma over science to enforce its materialistic agenda. Now, the imposition of Obamacare appears to be an even worse omen for the future.

1. "If you like your health care plan, you can keep it. Period." That famous quote from President Obama became his most famous deception, repeated over 30 times in public speeches. Later, he tried to change his promise to a conditional one: "You can keep it if it hasn't changed since the law passed".

2.. In fact, the whole 'Affordable Care Act' (ACA) also known as Obamacare is riddled with deceptions and absurdities starting with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's ludicrous statement to the Congress: "We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it."

Those who imagined that Congressmen should actually read the bills they pass, are living in a dream world from the past when Congress made an effort to represent the will of the people who elected them. That era has been long gone as a large number of Congressmen now spend their time huddling with lobbyists and planning new ways to enrich large corporations. This situation is reflected in the lowest public opinion poll of Congress ever taken.

3. When the first round of insurance cancellation notices were sent out in the last quarter of 2013, the deception of 'keeping your healthcare plan' hit home to 6,000,000 Americans who held private insurance. Even worse, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) estimates another 75 million who have employer-provided health insurance will lose their existing plans as well.

4. According to Ron Paul, "16,500 armed bureaucrats coming to make this program work - if it was a good program and everybody liked it, you wouldn't need 16,500 thugs coming with their guns and putting you in jail if you didn't follow all the rules."

5. Senator Max Baucus, from whose committee the bill originated said Obamacare was drafted by Liz Fowler, left, who was Vice President at WellPoint, the largest private health insurer in the country. Then she returned to the Senator's committee to play a prime role in drafting Obamacare legislation. Not only did Fowler play a major role in writing the law, but she then joined the Obama Administration to help implement the law.

SUMMARY OF NATURAL CANCER CURES

Dr Royal Rife
Essiac Tea (Dr. William Kelley)
(Dr. Issels)
Hoxsey Regimen
Dr Linus Pauling - Vitamin C
DMSO and Vitamin C
Budwig Protocol
Cesium Chloride - High pH Therapy
Gerson Therapy
Vitamin B17 Amygdalin
Burzynski Antineoplaston Therapy

Although by no means complete, the above list of naturopathic therapies developed by independent visionaries, not bound by the bureaucracy of orthodox medicine have resulted in curing hundreds of thousands of patients so that they can lead productive lives.

Yet even with documented evidence of their successful cures and patient testimonies to back them up, these medical visionaries have suffered inordinate harassment and in some cases arrests, lawsuits and trials initiated by the American Medical Association and the corrupt FDA until most were forced to close their clinics and leave the United States.

The people most affected by this harassment and persecution are those cancer patients who desire alternative therapies that work and those classified as terminal, left with no hope.

CHAPTER SUMMARY

Sloan Kettering Cancer Center
For over 100 years, the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center with a Rockefeller appointed Board has been recognized as the premier cancer hospital in the United States. Besides assisting Big Pharma research, they helped the FDA by producing negative test results for natural therapies.

The American Cancer Society
A bloated charity with a Rockefeller appointed Board, which due to top notch marketing by Albert Lasker and Elmer Bobst, became the biggest charity in the world with reserves of over $1 billion.

The American Medical Association
The early Directors, Simmons and Fishbein, set the tone for the AMA by soliciting ads from medical suppliers for the AMA Journal while greedily collecting kickbacks. They served to expand membership, raise income and attack all known alternative cancer therapies, forcing most out of business.

The Food and Drug Association
The FDA works hand in hand with the AMA using Federal courts to prosecute natural therapies for the benefit of Big Pharma which depends on patentable drugs to achieve billions in yearly profits. The revolving door between the Drug monoliths and the FDA is well known and explains their priorities.

Fluoridation and Cancer
As Dr Burk of the NCI revealed thru scientific studies, adding Fluoride to city reservoirs results in dramatically higher cancer rates in those cities.

Vaccination and Cancer
A steady increase in the vaccinations of young children has led to the dramatic increase in cancer over the past 60 years. The SV40 virus embedded in the polio vaccines of the 50's has proven to be a virulent carcinogen. Vaccine preservatives such as mercury and formaldehyde are also highly toxic and bio-accumulate in the body.

Medical Industry Fraud
With hundreds of billions of funds allocated, vast corruption abounds in scientific studies, peer reviews, fake test results and incentives for physicians to over-prescribe, all sanctioned by the Medical Cartel while ensuring Big Pharma receives the lion share of the money.

Obamacare Fiasco
This chapter covers a description of the failed launch, website deficiencies, security issues, continuing exclusions and delays and the insidious role of the IRS.

CONCLUSION

Those subjected to orthodox therapy without being given a choice are trapped in the Cancer Vortex with little chance of being cured. Natural therapies are available and the book highlights several possibilities. One must realize that cancer is not some foreign invader but a part of our biological process that has run amuck. It can be cured with proper knowledge and self discipline. Dr Otto Warburg recommends a solution and makes a startling revelation: "The prevention of cancer requires no government help and no extra money."

Quacks and quackery through the ages. A 'divertimento'.
Hugo Salinas Price
[Lindsey Williams knows this Mexican billionaire, who has given us advice about the coming collapse of the dollar -- search for his name on my Latest page.]
http://www.plata.com.mx/Mplata/articulos/articlesFilt.asp?fiidarticulo=170

Cortez conquered the Aztec Empire, in August 1521 (490 years ago, next month). When the war was over, the Spanish began to investigate the culture of the conquered people and found, to their amazement, that the people of what is now Mexico possessed a vast body of medical knowledge based on the curative qualities of plants.

The Spanish filed reports and sent back to Spain drawings of the plants with their Aztec names together with information about their curative powers.

The reaction of the doctors in Spain was immediate. They scoffed at the value of the supposed medical knowledge of these newly-conquered "barbarians". Their argument was: "These primitive people have no medical theory to support their medical claims. They do not know that the human body is governed by four humors or liquid spirits in the body: the choleric, the phlegmatic, the sanguine and the melancholic humors. These humors are affected by the planets, the Sun and the Moon. When there is no balance of these humors in the body, then the body is sick. The Aztecs have only experience upon which to base their medicine; our medicine is vastly superior because we know the true theory of health, and we deduce our medicine from the theory. All that medicine from New Spain (Mexico) is nonsense."

There is a curious anecdote from the 16th century; an Aztec was summoned before a court of medical doctors, because he was practicing medicine without a license. Faced by an accuser, he pulled out a cutting from an herb from a little bag he was carrying. He asked the accuser to smell it, which he did. The accuser's nose began to bleed uncontrollably, it was a veritable hemorrhage. Nothing could stop it. The Aztec was implored to stop the bleeding. He pulled out another herb from his bag and gave it to the bleeding man to smell. The hemorrhage stopped immediately. The case against the Aztec doctor was dismissed.

Such is the world, and such it will ever be. Today, Ph Ds in Economics infest the landscape. They are supposed to know a lot more than the rest of us, who refer to experience in our critical view of the world's illness, and point out what is wrong. However, we are not to be taken into account, like the Aztec doctors, because we do not know the all-important theory. We only have the experience of centuries, or millennia, to back up our considerations, and that of course, cuts no ice: no diplomas and no TV time for people who refer to historical experience; diplomas and kudos and respect are for the theorists, as possessors of arcane knowledge.

Of course, all of us have preconceived notions about everything, we couldn't manage life without them; but some people are able to see past important preconceived notions, especially those who have spent many years looking at facts and attempting to make sense out of them. Others can look at facts and never really see anything, because they are intellectually lazy or because they just don't care to set aside generally accepted opinion and decide for themselves. It's so much easier to go with the flow!

Take the case of the Dutchman Antony van Leeuwenhoek (1632-1723). He became wealthy as a cloth merchant. In his youth, as an apprentice to a cloth merchant, he first saw a magnifying glass, which was used by such merchants to examine their goods more closely. Later on, he developed a fascination with lenses; he began to make his own lenses and to apply them to looking at tiny things which had never been examined before. In 1674 he sent a report to the Royal Society for the Advancement of Science in London, about some tiny "animalcules", invisible to the naked eye, which he had seen in pond water. He wrote to the Royal Society believing them to be open-mined and interested in his work. Well, the Royal Society disbelieved his account of these microbes -- the first any man had seen! So he had to send them a letter signed by eight distinguished persons -- parsons, doctors and lawyers -- who testified that they had seen the "animalcules". The Royal Society, to their credit, did finally take great interest in Leeuwenhoek's work, and he sent them 300 letters describing his incredible discoveries.

He was the first man to see human spermatozoa and he realized that what he saw was the seed which serves to reproduce all mammals -- a fact which he knew was quite at odds with the "scientific" opinion of his times.

Leeuwenhoek's work was not appreciated by many, who criticized his "lack of scientific preparation": he had no Ph D. He was only a retired cloth merchant. What could he know?

Then again, we have Galileo, who first saw the moons that circle Jupiter, which convinced him that the Earth circles the Sun -- an opinion hateful to the Catholic Church at that time. He barely escaped burning at the stake, a fate which ended the life of Giordano Bruno in 1600, who postulated an infinite Universe and the multiplicity of worlds. An emissary from the Inquisition visited Galileo in his home. Galileo urged him to look through his telescope and see the moons of Jupiter for himself. The official refused to look through the telescope. Theory or dogma had to take precedence. The facts are irrelevant if they do not confirm the theory or dogma. This attitude prevails to our day, and will always prevail as long as human nature is what it is. We see it today, in the rejection on the part of the astrophysics establishment of the new and fascinating theory of the "electrical universe".

The experience of the Wright brothers is illuminating with regard to the Media. The Wright brothers had been flying their airplane on the outskirts of Dayton, Ohio, for five years before the local newspaper decided to send a reporter to investigate -- the idea of a heavier-than-air machine taking to the air was unthinkable, why bother?

Now we have the 9/11 delusion. The vast majority of people do not really see with their own eyes: they "see" what they are told to see, and will swear by it. Competent civil engineers, observing (with sound "off") the collapse of the Twin Towers and of the almost ignored WTC -7 - a forty seven story building -- immediately identified the event as, unquestionably, a programmed demolition. However, hundreds of millions of individuals all over the world attribute the collapse of these buildings to the fact that they were struck by two airplanes, and they will get angry if you suggest that the buildings could not have collapsed as a result of those airplanes crashing into them; the fact that WTC-7 collapsed on its own footprint, like the Twin Towers, and no airplane struck it is -- well, beside the point for these people. Facts are supposed to confirm a theory; if they do not -- then the facts must be shelved.

Archeologist Michael Cremo has written a thick book, "Forbidden Archeology" which is crammed with facts proving that Man has existed upon this earth in his present form, for many millions of years. However, these facts contradict Darwinism, and Darwinism and Evolution are regarded with religious reverence by today's archaeology. So the uncomfortable facts that archeologists come up with are filtered out of their reports. In their field of investigation, theory comes first, and only facts which agree with the Darwinian theory of evolution are reported. Other facts are discreetly ignored.

But the ultimate delusion prevailing in the world for the last forty years is fiat money. This delusion is so powerful that only a tiny minority among the close to 7 billion human beings on Earth is aware that it is a delusion, that all the money being used in the world as money, is in fact not money, but a simulation of money. Fiat money is now rapidly destroying the world, but in spite of all the signs pointing to fiat money as the cause, the foremost brains of the world refuse to acknowledge the fact. Their theories, which they were taught in prestigious schools and universities, take precedence over the fact of collapsing economies. As James Grant, publisher of The Interest Rate Observer points out, we are on a "Ph D Standard" -- and the Ph Ds are taking the world down with their theories. I suspect that if these Ph Ds were injected with a "truth serum", they would confess that they don't actually believe their theories, but that for personal reasons, they prefer not to question them publicly.

To conclude, I present "Prologue for Our Times" which I have written for a Spanish translation of Andrew Dickson White's masterpiece, "Fiat Money Inflation in France".

* * * * *

Whoever wishes to understand what is taking place in the world today would do well to read this small but highly important book, which we have translated into Spanish: "Fiat Money Inflation in France", by Andrew Dickson White, a former President of Cornell University, at one time in the diplomatic service of the United States, a student of economic and social affairs and author of numerous books. This book was first published in 1896, and reprinted in 1933.

This book places before us a microcosm of our present world.

What happened in Revolutionary France in the years 1790 to 1797 is precisely what is taking place in the whole world in 2011. The world is living in a process of monetary degeneration which began, explicitly, with the outbreak of World War I in 1914, though its origin lay in a series of previous financial malpractices dating back years before World War I; the disastrous conclusion of that process is approaching.

The fiat money inflation in France, whose birth and death took place in the short span of seven years, originated in a typically "revolutionary" idea held by the French lawmakers of the period: that human intelligence can dispense with the permanent and immutable laws that govern human action and can substitute them with schemes devised by the intellect, in order to achieve prosperity in the short term without the bothersome need to exercise the "bourgeois" virtues of savings, honest work, prudence and patience.

The lawmakers, impatient to resolve the problem of economic malaise which the Revolution itself had caused, decided to take a short-cut to stimulate the economy. Faced with popular unrest which cried out that "There is no money!" they proposed to remedy the supposed lack of money (a mere symptom) by creating money out of nothing.

Deaf to the warnings of men with financial experience, they confirmed to one another the supposed validity of their fallacious reasoning; convincing themselves of the viability of their monetary scheme, the lawmakers carried forward a project based on fiat money -- money irredeemable in gold or silver.

In spite of the negative results which this policy soon produced -- a steadily falling purchasing power of this fiat money, reflected in the rising prices of all goods - they insisted on pressing forward on this mistaken road and attributed the bad results to everything but their policy of inflation with fictitious money. That invariable law of finance with regard to fiat money, the law of the acceleration in the issue of fiat money and its concomitant accelerated depreciation, took possession of the French legislature.

Seven years later, France was totally ruined. Manufacturing had closed down. Unemployment was pervasive and consequently the stagnating salaries for labor brought enormous hardship for the poor, amid rising prices of food, clothing and fuel. Unemployment was only relieved by the military drafts which sent millions of Frenchmen to their deaths in the foreign wars. Morals suffered a precipitous decline. All business activity became a game of chance. Speculation enriched unscrupulous men and at the same time swept the poorer classes of the population into misery. Famine forced the government to dole out bread to the population.

What is perhaps most noteworthy in this fateful French experiment is that not one of those responsible for the disaster ever acknowledged having been mistaken. What took place in France, under the rgime of fiat money, is precisely what is happening in our world today. The same phenomena observed in France in the 18th century can be seen all over the world, today.

Those responsible for the huge world crisis of the present time insist on continuing down the path that led to this disaster. Not one of those responsible is willing to recognize that they have all been mistaken. They insist, as did the French revolutionaries, on applying greater doses of fiat money: if enough money is created, they say, the problems of the crisis will be resolved.

The destruction of France took only seven years. The same policy that destroyed France now operates around the world. Therefore, the moral and economic destruction has taken longer, since the whole world is the theatre of this tragedy, and not only one country.

The fatal outcome of this experiment with fiat money will arrive, sooner or later; it will have worldwide effects and it will take a century, at least, for the world to regain economic health.

And when this tragic conclusion shall have arrived, the readers of this little book may be quite sure that not one of those responsible for the catastrophe will ever admit that he had been mistaken.

7 Herb Formula - Essiac

[Note: search for "Essiac Tea: 4 Secret Ingredients Treated Thousands of Cancer Patients" and "Does Essiac Really Cure Cancer?" on this page, also.]

The Seven Herb Story: "The Fascinating History of How 7 Herb Formula Was Developed"

The Ancient Ojibway Indian Formula
Dr. Bill Maclean has been working with Jim Feijo of Daniel Chapter One in order to improve an ancient North American Indian Tribe's herbal formula that has been used for decades in Canada. A Canadian registered nurse, Renee Caisse, first learned of the Ojibway herbal tea in the 1920's, from a patient. Renee Caisse then gave it to her aunt who has the same health need.

The Secret Formula of President Kennedy's Personal Physician
According to Dr. Maclean, the late Dr. Charles Brusch -- President John F. Kennedy's personal physician -- improved upon the Ojibway formula. Dr. Brusch reportedly used Renee Caisse's formula on himself with success, and then conducted clinical trials on it, with both mice and people, with positive results. Dr. Maclean entered into an agreement with Dr. Brusch and obtained Renee Caisse's much improved formula.

7 Herb Formula Is Born
The old four-herb formula, Dr. Maclean states, has been improved upon to make it more efficacious and safe. He added two more herbs to the formula and tripled the amount of herbs used to make the product. Jim Feijo added a seventh herb to the formula, perfecting the concentrated herbal remedy.

Why 7 Herb Formula?
Dr. Maclean also improved the processing of the herbs to maintain the maximum therapeutic value from each herb. It was Jim Feijo of Daniel Chapter One who came up with the 7 Herb Formula that included Eleutherococcus senticosus (Eleuthero), an adaptogenic, tonifying herb, to help the body adapt to internal and external stress. The compounds in Eleuthero have demonstrated a wide variety of benefits. By using Dr. Macleans's precise preparation procedures and adding Eleuthero to the improved formula of Renee Caisse and Dr. Brusch, Daniel Chapter One's 7 Herb Formula is in a class by itself.

The Truth Is Out There
Jim Feijo, the Daniel Chapter One founder stated:"We can't, by law, make any claims. We allow those who are living healthier lives to give their testimony as to how well 7 Herb Formula works. These are truly wonderful and inspiring stories. The truth is out there, living and breathing."

The testimonials have been modified from their original submissions. To comply with an FTC order, Daniel Chapter One was forced to remove any and all health claims, expressed or implied. Because many of the testimonials we receive contain statements by our customers that imply a health claim, we are required to remove such statements to make them compliant.
For more information about our Health Freedom Fight, please visit www.dc1ministry.com

For decades, thousands of people have used 7 Herb Formula to help them support their body's natural state of health.

We are proud of the work we do and would like to share these testimonials to glorify Yahweh, the God of all creation. However, we are only able to share these partial statements because the U.S. Government has prohibited us from sharing them in their entirety. In doing so, they have denied you the right and freedom to hear them. For this we are very sorry, however, we hope that the remainder of these stories will help you see that 7 Herb Formula has been very important to many.

"We can't, by law, make any health claims. We allow those who are now living normal lives to give their testimony as to how well 7 herb Formula works. These are truly wonderful and inspiring stories. The truth is out there, living and breathing."

"The 7 Herbs"
7 Herb Formula is an example of God-given herbs that have been used for thousands of years. Through divine revelation and human experience the knowledge of these herbs and many others have been gathered and passed down from generation to generation. The herbs are harvested from various regions around the world and meticulously prepared.

Sheep Sorrel
Rich in vitamins, minerals and trace elements, high in life-giving properties. It nourishes the glandular system, and is known to help support healthy skin and mucous membranes such as the lining of the stomach or duodenum.

Cat's Claw
An herb from the Peruvian rainforest. Its inner bark, which is in 7 Herb Formula, is one of the most powerful cleansers of the intestinal tract. It is also an antioxidant and supports healthy inflammatory response and a healthy immune system.

Watercress
The same plant used for salad greens and garnishes, is an excellent cleanser in the body and supports healthy mucous membranes including the stomach lining. Supports healthy kidneys and joints.

Eleuthero (formerly called Siberian Ginseng)
An herbal "tonic" with restorative power due to its glycoside content. Glycosides are natural phytochemicals that initiate the body's stress response, helping to support a healthy immune system. Eleuthero also produces saponins, steroids found in plants, which have positive effects on cells.

Slippery Elm
According to herbalist Jethro Kloss, should be used in all stomach troubles because of its ability to strengthen and nourish the stomach. It nourishes the organs and tissues due to its nutrient content: bioflavanoids, calcium, phosphorous, polysaccharides, and vitamins A, B, C, and K. Slippery Elm also helps to neutralize stomach acid.

Turkey Rhubarb Root
Helps to purge the body of wastes and toxic matter. Also called Indian Rhubarb, this herb counteracts acids due to indigestion and acts as a gentle laxative. The malic acid inherent in the herb carries oxygen to all parts of the body. Turkey Rhubarb has powerful immune supporting properties, and may help support a healthy immune response.

Burdock Root
Used extensively in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine, is a potent blood purifier. Helps support healthy liver and gallbladder function. Burdock contains the nutrients zinc, iron, manganese, and vitamins B1, B6, and B12. It also provides vitamin E and selenium, which help combat free radicals. Burdock Root contains natural insulin, which is beneficial for healthy blood sugar.

(Note: ask to make sure that the herbs are either organic or wildcrafted and non-irradiated.)

Support the Free Speech About Science Act and restore freedom of health speech
http://www.naturalnews.com/z028879_censorship_healing_foods.html
For too long, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) have blatantly censored the truth about food, herbs and dietary supplements. These government agencies are supposed to be protecting public health and well-being, but they accomplish precisely the opposite by actively censoring the truth about natural products and working to keep the public ignorant about the health benefits of nutritional products. It's all part of the plan to prop up the profits of Big Pharma by eliminating the competition...
The FDA says, ridiculously, that only pharmaceutical drugs are capable of preventing or treating disease. Even though this is scientifically false, the agency has structured the rules to categorize anything that treats or prevents disease as a drug. So if you eat walnuts, and those walnuts lower high cholesterol (which they do), the FDA declares your walnuts to be "drugs."
Existing law dictates that if anything is advertised as providing health benefits without the FDA's approval, it's automatically considered to be an "unapproved drug", even if it's a common, everyday food like walnuts, cherries, grapes or oranges.
Amazingly, references to peer-reviewed scientific studies are not allowed to be made by companies without permission from the FDA because the agency considers this to be an illegal health claim. So if you sell walnuts, and your website merely links to published scientific studies that describe the cholesterol-lowering benefits of walnuts, then you can be threatened, arrested, imprisoned and fined millions of dollars by the FDA for selling "unapproved drugs."
If you flee the country, you can be then be listed on INTERPOL as an international fugitive wanted for "drug offenses." This is exactly what happened to Greg Caton, who was recently kidnapped from Ecuador by U.S. agents working on behalf of the FDA (http://www.naturalnews.com/z027750_Greg_Caton_FDA.html), brought back to the USA against his will, and sentenced to federal prison.
The FDA thinks walnuts are drugs
If you're skeptical that what I'm saying here is true, take a look at the warning letter the FDA sent to Diamond Food, Inc. back in February concerning the health claims the company had been making about its walnuts...

What is Essiac Tea
http://essiacfacts.com/#what-is-essiac-tea

(See above link for pictures and more information about each herb)

Ingredients of Essiac Tea

Essiac is an herbal decoction that has become well known for it's effectiveness in treating a wide variety of chronic illnesses as well as being an excellent natural detox method. Essiac tea benefits the entire body. It's made with these four herbs;

The root of the Burdock plant
The entire Sheep sorrel plant
The inner bark of the Slippery Elm tree
The roots of the Turkey Rhubarb plant (indian rhubarb and other varieties have also been used but are less potent)

The herbs are boiled for a short time and then left to steep for 8-12 hours. The tea is then boiled once more and then strained. Each herb in the essiac tea recipe has roots in natural folk medicine. Sheep sorrel and burdock have been used for centuries to treat cancer and other illnesses. Slippery elm bark and turkey rhubarb are known for their healing and detoxifying abilities. Each herb has it's own benefits, but when combined, these herbs work together in a synergistic fashion to provide an amazing health effect on the body.

Does Essiac Really Cure Cancer?
http://essiacfacts.com/#does-essiac-really-cure-cancer

Essiac tea is not a miracle cure. Although it has many anti-cancer properties and immune benefits, every situation is different. There are so many factors that can affect the outcome of cancer treatment. It should not be used as a primary treatment for advanced cancers but should be used in combination with other natural and conventional treatments and makes and excellent addition to any cancer diet. This remedy is best used against early diagnosed cancers that do not have rapid growth and are not spreading aggressively.

*** Important ***
Although this tea has been used to cure advanced cancers, it is not commonly administered like it was in Rene's clinic. Rene Caisse used locally grown herbs to prepare her formula and administered it to her patients within 48 hours of preparation. Commercially prepared mixes just cannot offer that same level of freshness and potency. For maximum potency, it is highly recommended that you make your own tea.

[Make sure that the herbs you use are organic and non-irradiated.]

How do I Prepare Essiac Tea?
http://essiacfacts.com/#how-do-i-prepare-essiac-tea

Here is the true essiac tea recipe that was published in 1988 by Dr. Gary Glum and later publicly confirmed under oath by Mary McPherson, Rene's friend and assistant at her Bracebridge clinic for cancer patients. At that time, Mary was the only one besides Rene who knew the essiac recipe and had actually prepared it. You can find the word for word transcription of her affidavit here along with more information on the essiac tea recipe. I find its easier and more accurate to measure the ingredients by weight so I've also included a recipe measured in grams.
How to Make Essiac Tea

6 cups (1 lbs.)of burdock root cut
1 pound of sheep sorrel herb powdered
1/4 pound of slippery elm bark powdered
1 ounce of Turkish rhubarb root powdered

Mix these ingredients thoroughly and store in glass jar in dark dry cupboard.Take a measuring cup, use 1 ounce of herb mixture to 32 ounces of water depending on the amount you want to make.I use 1 cup of mixture to 8 x 32 = 256 ounces of water. Boil hard for 10 minutes (covered) then turn off heat but leave sitting on warm plate over night (covered).In the morning heat steaming hot and let settle a few minutes, then strain through fine strainer into hot sterilized bottles and sit to cool. Store in dark cool cupboard. Must be refrigerated when opened. When near the last when its thick pour in a large jar and sit in frig overnight then pour off all you [can] without sediment.This recipe must be followed exactly as written.I use a granite preserving kettle (10 -- 12 qts), 8 ounce measuring cup, small funnel and fine strainer to fill bottles.
Essiac Formula Measured by Weight

120 grams chopped Burdock Root
80 grams powdered Sheep Sorrel
20 grams powdered Slippery Elm Bark

Essiac Recipe Depends on Using the Right Plants
http://essiacfacts.com/essiac-recipe-depends-on-using-the-right-plants/

Here are some important factors about the four ingredients in Essiac:

Sheep Sorrel: This herb is not readily available commercially. It's distribution was restricted after Rene's death. This plant is common in Muskoka and harvesting it yourself will ensure you have the right ingredient. here is a picture of sheep sorrel as shown in Sheila Snow's "The Essence of Essiac." The bitter taste will assure you that it is Sheep Sorrel.

Burdock:This is regarded by most of us as a nuisance - especially the prickly seed cases in the fall, which we call burrs. The root must be harvested in October and it must be from a first year plant (there should be no center stock.) The roots look like carrots and can be cut into slices to dry - then pulverized in a blender. The dried product has a sweet taste

Slippery Elm Bark:This herb is available at any reputable health food store and it must be a light brown powder. It tastes much like flour.

Turkish Rhubarb Root: This product may be purchased in health food stores, as a powder, or in root form. The plants are native to China and Tibet. Our native rhubarb may be substituted, but the plant must be at least three years old.

Of the four herbs, Mary is most concerned about the availability of real Sheep Sorrel. "I have seen products called Sheep sorrel," she says, "but it clearly is not what we know as Sheep Sorrel."
Below is Rene Caisse's recipe as transmitted to her friend and colleague, Mary McPherson:
Essiac
6 1/2 cups of burdock root (cut
1 pound of sheep sorrel herb (powdered)
1/4 pound of slippery elm bark (powdered)
1 ounce of turkish rhubarb root (powdered)

Mix these ingredients thoroughly and store in glass jar in dark dry cupboard.
Take a measuring cup, use 1 ounce of herb mixture to 32 ounces of water depending on the amount you want to make.

I use 1 cup of mixture to 8 x 32 = 256 ounces of water. Boil hard for 10 minutes (covered) then turn off heat but leave sitting on warm plate over night (covered).
In the morning heat steaming hot and let settle a few minutes, then strain through fine strainer into hot sterilized bottles and sit to cool. Store in dark cool cupboard. Must be refrigerated when opened. When near the last when its thick pour in a large jar and sit in frig overnight then pour off all you [can] without sediment.

This recipe must be followed exactly as written.

I use a granite preserving kettle (10 -- 12 qts), 8 ounce measuring cup, small funnel and fine strainer to fill bottles.

Essiac Tea for Dogs and Other Pets
http://essiacfacts.com/essiac-tea-for-dogs-and-other-pets/

How much essiac tea should a dog or cat be given each day?

While Rene Caisse's work with her formula did not involve pets, Sheila Snow and Mali Klein (currently the most highly regarded authors of authentic Rene Caisse information) say this about pets in their 1999 book Essiac Essentials: "As a guide for treating animals, it is best to assess the dosage according to their weight. A cat weighing eleven pounds is doing well on 2ml daily whereas a large and heavy dog of 120 pounds would need an adult dose of 30ml daily."

1/16 cup = 1/2 oz. (fluid ounce) = 1 Tbsp. (tablespoon) = 3 tsp. (teaspoons) = 15 ml (milliliters)

Essiac Tea Daily Dosages for Pets

Pet Weight Milliliter Teaspoon Tablespoon Liquid Ounce
under 5 lbs .75 ml 1/8 tsp
5 lbs 1.25 ml 1/4 tsp
10 lbs 2.5 ml 1/2 tsp
20 lbs 5 ml 1 tsp
40 lbs 15 ml 3 tsp 1 Tbsp 1/2 oz
60 lbs 20 ml 4 tsp
80 lbs 25 ml 5 tsp
100+ lbs 30 ml 6 tsp 2 Tbsp 1 oz

The best results we have heard about with pets have been animals who had a much larger dose than these recommended doses. I think that the best hope for good results is to increase the dose as much as possible. We don't know what Ms Caisse was really doing. There may have been something different about the sorrel, and she may have been using more parts of the plant than we can get now (short of growing it). She may have been adding some other ingredient that we don't know about. Whatever the reason, the dose she recommends does perhaps help animals feel better, and it may extend their lives, but probably won't make them better. As an aside, she did not vary the dose by weight with humans as far as I have ever heard, a 100 pound woman got the same dose as a 200 pound man.

An issue with large doses for pets is the amount of Rhubarb they end up taking. Rhubarb is a laxative, and that is probably the main reason it is needed in essiac. In the first 70 years of the 20th century chemotherapy regimens tended to cause constipation, and that is not the case anymore. Dogs have much shorter digestive systems than people, and they are much more susceptible to diarrhea. So the larger dose of essiac must be balanced against the amount that can be taken without causing diarrhea. One way to decide what the dose for a pet ought to be is to increase the amount until they get diarrhea and then back off.
How much essiac should I buy, and should it be pre-made bottled or a dry mix?

Herb sellers/essiac companies are geared for human consumption and that puts pet owners at a disadvantage because small animals consume relatively small amounts. You can find small 1 oz. packets of dry essiac herbs but they are often outrageously priced. However, larger packages of herbs can be divided into the correct amount to make smaller amounts of tea at one time. I make tea a quart at a time. That way less has to be thrown out. You can even make a pint at a time. There is disagreement about making such a small amount. Some people think that the tea is not the same when you don't make at least a gallon.

With health food store ready-to-use bottled essiac tea, the options are expensive. You can find bottled 17 fluid ounce Flor-Essence online and in local health food stores, and they are each about $25 per bottle. You might feel the cost is worth it. Flor-essence is an 8 herb formulation. You can also find essiac in a tonic form. It is more concentrated than the other teas and requires a smaller dose, possibly making it easier to administer to picky animals. It also contains 18% alcohol, which allows it to keep much longer. Another form of essiac can be found in capsules. The liquid is removed and the powder that is left is put in capsules. I have seen this, it is interesting and might be much easier to get into some animals. A few people have reported very good results with their pets with the capsules. Many sources say not to use them because they are inferior, but it isn't clear to me that there's a good enough reason for that. I know of some people who are taking both the tea and the capsules, among other things. It isn't clear what the end result will be, but they are improving right now.
3. How long can you keep essiac tea after opening it?

The common wisdom and the essiac marketers all say an opened bottle of essiac tea will keep in the refrigerator two weeks or more. I think that essiac tea made from the traditional recipe begins to spoil after about 4 days. Some of the essiac tea that is sold, although made from the four essiac herbs, is not the traditional recipe, and one reason for that is to allow the tea to keep longer. If the tea is sour it is not the traditional essiac recipe. It may very well keep longer than four days. I think the sour teas have more sorrel, which is very acidic and will discourage mold. But they are not the essiac recipe that is considered "correct". It isn't possible to say whether the traditional recipe is better or not. I would be uncomfortable about very large doses of tea with these formulations, which have a smaller ratios of burdock and slippery elm to buffer the sorrel.
4. How long can dry herbs be stored?

The way dry herbs are stored dramatically effects how long they will keep. If you store them in plastic containers in light places they will not keep very long. Plastic bags are not a good choice for storing herbs. If you store them under a vacuum seal (for instance using a Foodsaver and Ball jars) in glass jars in a dark cool place they can keep a very long time. When you buy any dry herbs, whether they are mixed already or separate, it is a good idea to become familiar with how they smell. When they lose their fragrance they are not good anymore. Leafy herbs do not keep as long as roots and stems. Cut herbs or chunks keep longer than powdered herbs, especially if they are not stored very carefully. As a rule of thumb dry herbs can be kept for a year, but this is a very general rule, totally dependent on how you care for them.
5. How do I make essiac tea for my pet?

When brewing the essiac tea recipe for your pet, you can make a pint or quart of tea at a time (instead of the usual 1 or 2 gallons in marketer directions) in a 1-2 quart stainless steel, enameled, or Pyrex glass pot with lid. Choose one of these directions to make 1 pint or 1 quart essiac tea. Powdered herbs will usually have chunks of burdock in them, they are still powdered. If your herbs are all chunks and stems and leaves they are cut/sifted (c/s)

1. One quart boiling distilled water, add 2 Tablespoons powdered herbs OR 4 Tablespoons of C/S herbs, stir, boil 10 minutes.

2. One pint boiling distilled water, add 1 Tablespoon powdered herbs OR 2 Tablespoons of C/S herbs, stir, boil 10 minutes.

After the 10 minute boil with lid on, allow pot to cool enough to put in the refrigerator and let steep for 10-12 hours or overnight. Reheat just to simmer point to kill bacteria and then pour hot tea into hot sterilized bottle using funnel and stainless steel sieve to catch residue. The residue (sludge) can be refrigerated and saved for skin poultices or used as garden compost.

Regarding final results, you will always end up with less tea than expected (as much as 1/4 less) due to water loss due to boil evaporation and absorption by residue. However, brewing the tea is so easy that making it fresh every few days can become a simple routine. See these pages for tips about bottles you can use and how to sterilize them in a microwave oven.

6. Besides essiac, what other supplements and remedies are worth trying?
Here are some suggestions:
Last summer I ran across lactoferrin. Right now I would use lactoferrin with any cancer. It is an extract of bovine colostrum, and it may be angiogenic, which means it may deprive tumors of their blood supply. It also is a very good immune system booster. If it does nothing it will at least not hurt them. You can get it at most health food stores. I get the Jarrow 250 mg lactoferrin. If one of my human sized dogs had cancer I would give them 1500 mg a day.

Reishi mushroom extract is the next thing I would use. It is also widely available. There are many formulations that include a lot of other ingredients, so it is necessary to be sure you get plain reishi mushroom extract. This comes in capsules of standardized extract.

Red Clover/Blue Violet Leaf as tea (equal parts both) or capsules. Because these two herbs should be steeped but not boiled, they could be added to essiac tea after the 10 minute boil. The 8 herb essiac products already have red clover in them, but not blue violet leaf.

Flax seed oil mixed with cottage cheese sometimes helps, a human or giant 100 pound dog would take 1 tablespoon flax seed oil blended into 1/4 cup cottage cheese three times a day (cottage cheese or yogurt acts as a necessary co-activator). According to animal authorities Mary Wulff-Tilford and Greg Tilford (authors of "All You Ever Wanted to Know About Herbs For Pets"), most pets and cats in particular do not get enough Omega 3 fats and flax seed is the best source for them. A recent issue of Whole Dog Journal has an article about flaxseed oil and cottage cheese, also see this page for info on the Budwig protocol. The best flax seed oil is at barleans.com. You need to keep it refrigerated as it spoils easily, and you would want to make tiny quantities fresh each day (you could eat the excess yourself, it is guaranteed good for you). You need cold pressed flax seed oil. It must not be heated and and must be refrigerated. If you use ground flax seed you need to use three times as much. Adjust the dose based on the weight of your pet.

Coenzyme Q-10 is good (but expensive), it needs to be given in fat. It would probably work added to flax seed oil + cottage cheese. A giant dog needs 600mg CoQ-10 a day, in 6 doses. An average (40 lb) dog could be given 300mg daily, a small dog or average cat 150mg. Capsules containing powdered CoQ-10 (it should be a bright yellow powder) can be opened and mixed with fat. The formulations mixed with oil in gel capsules are not as good.

Pycnogenol and grape seed extract are excellent anti-oxidants for dogs but I do not know how cats react to them.

Another thing you might look into is IP6 and Inositol.

Diet is very important, your pet should be eating food made from human grade ingredients. I no longer feed my dogs anything made with ingredients I would hesitate to eat myself. Dog foods made with human grade ingredients will say so on web sites or possibly in pamphlets but they may not say so on the bag. If no source says they are made from human grade ingredients, you can be pretty sure the food is not made with human grade ingredients. Some dog food manufacturers are trying to skate around this by using other words, mostly they don't mean anything. I don't know if "USDA meats" means that it is considered fit for human consumption

Do You Remember Billy Best?
http://essiacfacts.com/billy-best/

Flash back to October, 1994. A teenage cancer patient made national headlines when he ran away from home to escape chemotherapy. Billy Best was 16 at the time and living with his family in Norwell, MA. After being diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma, Best endured a few rounds of traditional chemotherapy, but the harsh treatments made him so sick and so weak, he made his own decision to discontinue treatment. He decided he would rather live his life -- however short it might be -- on his own terms. He packed his bag and ran away, not yet knowing how that single act would put him on a path of discovery to find an alternative way of healing.

Now 35 and a father himself, Best has partnered with Linda Conti of Sandcastle Memoirs to write and publish his new book, "The Billy Best Story: Beating Cancer with Alternative Medicine." It has been almost nineteen years, and Best has remained cancer-free. He continues to advocate for the rights of individuals to choose alternative treatments.

On that fateful day so long ago, without so much as a word of farewell to any of his friends, Best gathered up his few belongings, his skateboard, and a sum of a few hundred dollars and hopped on a Greyhound bus. Final destination: California.

He never made it that far. After several days of traveling alone from city to city, Best reached the state of Texas and settled in with some fellow skateboarders in Houston who befriended him and gave him a place to stay. Meanwhile back in Norwell, Best's family was frantic and fearful for his safety and his deteriorating health. After several desperate days, they contacted the news media in a last-ditch attempt to locate their ill son.

The story of the runaway teen traveled like wildfire, appearing in newspaper headlines and on network news programs across the country. Police in numerous states implored the public to watch for a "bald teenager on a Greyhound bus." Reporters camped outside the family home as Best's parents waited by the phone, praying their son would call.
billybest1

Thanks to the vast media attention, an outpouring of support from the public started to reach the Best family in the form of letters and phone calls. It seemed everyone had advice for young Billy Best. It was the promise of alternative medicine that finally convinced him to return home and seek out the therapies he could live with. In the decade that followed, as his recovery continued to defy the norm, Best made numerous appearances on television talk shows and at natural health conferences around the U.S.

An integral part of Best's cancer treatment was his commitment to making significant changes to his diet -- changes that are outlined in his book -- including the use of Essiac Tea. Over the last eighteen years since he was diagnosed, Best has been heartened to see a gradual but growing awareness about how what we eat and what we put into our bodies can make a significant difference when fighting disease or just in keeping a well body strong. "It's great to see the local food movement now, and to see people taking a more critical look at the foods they buy and eat," he said.

An inspirational story of hope and triumph, "The Billy Best Story" is available online at Amazon.com and in local stores throughout the Boston and Cape Cod, MA areas.

Essiac Tea: 4 Secret Ingredients Treated Thousands of Cancer Patients
http://naturalsociety.com/essiac-tea-4-secret-ingredients-cured-thousands-cancer-patients/

Since the 1920's, a renegade nurse treated thousands of cancer patients in Canada with a little known tea made up of just four simple ingredients. By combining Burdock Root, Turkey Rhubarb (used in Chinese medicine to cleanse the colon), Sheep Sorrel (the whole plant including the root) and Slippery Elm (not yellow dock or curly dock as some companies now substitute the herbs in the formulas) Rene Caisse passed on a medicinal wonder which was said to have been passed to her from the Canadian Ojibwa Indians.

Caisse worked with cancer patients for decades, even enduring jail time due to her actions threatening Canadian drug companies. She was proving to be very successful in 'treating' cancer with her special tea. The drug companies charged people through the nose for their cancer treatments, but Nurse Caisse charged absolutely nothing.

Her treatments were, in fact, so successful that in 1938 when she was being punished for helping so many people, more than 55,000 supporters signed a petition to support her ongoing efforts. A bill was also presented in Ontario, which would have allowed Caisse to continue to practice 'treating' people, but it lost by only three signatures.

Her name spelled backwards is the name for this cancer-curing wonder, Essiac Tea. Her funeral was in 1978, and though she was once targeted for 'practicing medicine without a license', hundreds of cancer patients showed up at her funeral to show respects to the 90 year old woman who saved their lives.

Since Caisse's time, the Chinese government has now tested Essiac tea extensively and now lists it as a cancer 'medicine.' The news of this herbal tonic has been quashed like many other natural remedies, by Big Pharma and drug companies who make huge profits off of people suffering from cancer.

Later, the Essiac tea recipe was expanded to include Blessed Thistle, Kelp, Red Clover and Watercress to make it even more potent.

Sheep sorrel, like so many other cancer-fighting plants, is also usually considered an unwanted weed. Caisse knew this was one of the most important ingredients from her advice given by her elderly Indian friend, and she even wrote a letter to Dr. Chester Stock of the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Institute, the world's oldest and largest private anti-cancer establishment, trying to convince him of its efficacy.

Following is a recipe for the original formula, (http://essiacfacts.com/preparing-the-essiac-tea-recipe/) You can also reference books written on the topic or see your own naturopathic doctor to confirm if it is right for you or someone you love:

6 cups of burdock root (cut)

1 pound of sheep sorrel herb powdered

1/4 pound of slippery elm bark powdered

1 ounce of Turkish rhubarb root powdered

Mix these ingredients thoroughly and sore in glass jar in dark dry cupboard.

Take a measuring cup, use 1 ounce of herb mixture to 32 ounces of water depending on the amount you want to make.

I use 1 cup of mixture to 8 x 32 = 256 ounces of water. Boil hard for 10 minutes (covered) then turn off heat but leave sitting on warm plate over night (covered).

In the morning heat steaming hot and let settle a few minutes, then strain through fine strainer into hot sterilized bottles and sit to cool. Store in dark cool cupboard. Must be refrigerated when opened. When near the last when its thick pour in a large jar and sit in frig overnight then pour off all you [can] without sediment.

This recipe must be followed exactly as written.

Use a granite preserving kettle (10 -- 12 qts), 8 ounce measuring cup, and a small funnel to fill bottles.

U.S. Man Who Survived Without Chemo: 'I'd Still Fight'

Man Who Survived Without Chemo: 'I'd Still Fight'
Man Who Ran to Avoid Chemo in 1994, Says He'd Help Mom and Teen Now on the Lam
By LAUREN COX, EMILY FRIEDMAN and JASON RYAN
May 23, 2009 -

Billy Best ran away from home in Norwell, Mass., in 1994 to avoid chemotherapy, and today he offered conflicting words of support and opposition to Daniel and Colleen Hauser. The mother and son, who are from Minnesota, are now part of an international police search after they fled a judge's court-ordered chemotherapy Monday for Daniel.

Jason Seidl, chief deputy at the Brown County Sheriff's office in Minnesota, affirmed Saturday that the pair last were spotted near the Tijuana-California border. However Seidle said it's unknown whether they actually crossed the border into Mexico.

"They're avoiding a court order, which is against the law, so they shouldn't do that," Best told ABC's "Good Morning America." "But it's also a mother who's looking out for her family. You know, somewhere in between there's an answer."

Best eventually returned home where authorities allowed him to pursue his choice of alternative treatments.

"I ran away because I believe the chemo was poisoning me and it would kill me before it cured me," said Best.

In the past Best claimed that roots, Indian rhubarb and slippery elm helped him stay cancer-free, but told "GMA" on Saturday he "used something called 714-X."

"That's not an issue here," said Best, who instead critiqued the widely circulated statistic that Daniel Hauser's cancer would have 90 percent cure rate with chemotherapy.

When asked whether he would help the family if they contacted him, Best said he would.

"I would because it's something that's so close to me," he said. "It's been, almost, 15 years and to see today someone fighting for those same -- freedoms. I thought we were past that."

"I'd fight. I'd fight for that freedom," he said.

Best was 16 when he fled to Houston to escape treatment for Hodgkin's disease, according to The Associated Press. He returned home only after his parents promised that they would not force him to have the treatments.

Late Wednesday, the AP reported that Best denied he was with Hauser and her son, saying that he had not spoken to them since they fled.

As of Saturday the Hausers are still on the run instead of fighting the Minnesota courts.

Search For Cancer-Ridden Teen Goes International

The U.S. Attorney's office and the FBI filed federal criminal charges Friday against Colleen Janet Hauser for fleeing with her son Daniel to avoid giving him chemotherapy for his cancer.

The federal criminal complaint notes that Hauser and her son flew on Sun Country Airlines from Minnesota to Los Angeles May 19, 2009, and their current whereabouts are unknown. The felony charge is fleeing from the state of Minnesota to avoid prosecution for deprivation of parental rights.

The case has now become an international manhunt with Interpol being notified and U.S. Marshals being deployed to Mexico from the San Diego Field Office and the U.S. Embassy in Mexico. According to one source, the marshals and Mexican law enforcement officers were in Tijuana looking for Hauser and her son.

"I can confirm U.S. Marshals are assisting Minnesota authorities," U.S. Marshals spokesman Jeffrey Carter told ABC News. "We have deputy marshals in Mexico now and are working with Mexican authorities to follow up on several leads."

Earlier, the father of the Minnesota teenager made a desparate plea for his son to return with his mother for court-ordered cancer chemotherapy treatment .

Authorities said they believe Hauser and her 13-year-old son, Daniel, may be in Mexico -- or trying to get there -- to seek alternative treatments for the teen who suffers from Hodgkin's
Also consider taking Sir Jason Winter's Tea and adding Chapparral leaf extract to it, as Sir Jason Winters did when he used it to beat cancer.

7 Herb Formula - Essiac

The Seven Herb Story: "The Fascinating History of How 7 Herb Formula Was Developed"

The Ancient Ojibway Indian Formula
Dr. Bill Maclean has been working with Jim Feijo of Daniel Chapter One in order to improve an ancient North American Indian Tribe's herbal formula that has been used for decades in Canada. A Canadian registered nurse, Renee Caisse, first learned of the Ojibway herbal tea in the 1920's, from a patient. Renee Caisse then gave it to her aunt who has the same health need.

The Secret Formula of President Kennedy's Personal Physician
According to Dr. Maclean, the late Dr. Charles Brusch -- President John F. Kennedy's personal physician -- improved upon the Ojibway formula. Dr. Brusch reportedly used Renee Caisse's formula on himself with success, and then conducted clinical trials on it, with both mice and people, with positive results. Dr. Maclean entered into an agreement with Dr. Brusch and obtained Renee Caisse's much improved formula.

7 Herb Formula Is Born
The old four-herb formula, Dr. Maclean states, has been improved upon to make it more efficacious and safe. He added two more herbs to the formula and tripled the amount of herbs used to make the product. Jim Feijo added a seventh herb to the formula, perfecting the concentrated herbal remedy.

Why 7 Herb Formula?
Dr. Maclean also improved the processing of the herbs to maintain the maximum therapeutic value from each herb. It was Jim Feijo of Daniel Chapter One who came up with the 7 Herb Formula that included Eleutherococcus senticosus (Eleuthero), an adaptogenic, tonifying herb, to help the body adapt to internal and external stress. The compounds in Eleuthero have demonstrated a wide variety of benefits. By using Dr. Macleans's precise preparation procedures and adding Eleuthero to the improved formula of Renee Caisse and Dr. Brusch, Daniel Chapter One's 7 Herb Formula is in a class by itself.

The Truth Is Out There
Jim Feijo, the Daniel Chapter One founder stated:"We can't, by law, make any claims. We allow those who are living healthier lives to give their testimony as to how well 7 Herb Formula works. These are truly wonderful and inspiring stories. The truth is out there, living and breathing."

The testimonials have been modified from their original submissions. To comply with an FTC order, Daniel Chapter One was forced to remove any and all health claims, expressed or implied. Because many of the testimonials we receive contain statements by our customers that imply a health claim, we are required to remove such statements to make them compliant.
For more information about our Health Freedom Fight, please visit www.dc1ministry.com

For decades, thousands of people have used 7 Herb Formula to help them support their body's natural state of health.

We are proud of the work we do and would like to share these testimonials to glorify Yahweh, the God of all creation. However, we are only able to share these partial statements because the U.S. Government has prohibited us from sharing them in their entirety. In doing so, they have denied you the right and freedom to hear them. For this we are very sorry, however, we hope that the remainder of these stories will help you see that 7 Herb Formula has been very important to many.

"We can't, by law, make any health claims. We allow those who are now living normal lives to give their testimony as to how well 7 herb Formula works. These are truly wonderful and inspiring stories. The truth is out there, living and breathing."

"The 7 Herbs"
7 Herb Formula is an example of God-given herbs that have been used for thousands of years. Through divine revelation and human experience the knowledge of these herbs and many others have been gathered and passed down from generation to generation. The herbs are harvested from various regions around the world and meticulously prepared.

Sheep Sorrel
Rich in vitamins, minerals and trace elements, high in life-giving properties. It nourishes the glandular system, and is known to help support healthy skin and mucous membranes such as the lining of the stomach or duodenum.

Cat's Claw
An herb from the Peruvian rainforest. Its inner bark, which is in 7 Herb Formula, is one of the most powerful cleansers of the intestinal tract. It is also an antioxidant and supports healthy inflammatory response and a healthy immune system.

Watercress
The same plant used for salad greens and garnishes, is an excellent cleanser in the body and supports healthy mucous membranes including the stomach lining. Supports healthy kidneys and joints.

Eleuthero (formerly called Siberian Ginseng)
An herbal "tonic" with restorative power due to its glycoside content. Glycosides are natural phytochemicals that initiate the body's stress response, helping to support a healthy immune system. Eleuthero also produces saponins, steroids found in plants, which have positive effects on cells.

Slippery Elm
According to herbalist Jethro Kloss, should be used in all stomach troubles because of its ability to strengthen and nourish the stomach. It nourishes the organs and tissues due to its nutrient content: bioflavanoids, calcium, phosphorous, polysaccharides, and vitamins A, B, C, and K. Slippery Elm also helps to neutralize stomach acid.

Turkey Rhubarb Root
Helps to purge the body of wastes and toxic matter. Also called Indian Rhubarb, this herb counteracts acids due to indigestion and acts as a gentle laxative. The malic acid inherent in the herb carries oxygen to all parts of the body. Turkey Rhubarb has powerful immune supporting properties, and may help support a healthy immune response.

Burdock Root
Used extensively in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine, is a potent blood purifier. Helps support healthy liver and gallbladder function. Burdock contains the nutrients zinc, iron, manganese, and vitamins B1, B6, and B12. It also provides vitamin E and selenium, which help combat free radicals. Burdock Root contains natural insulin, which is beneficial for healthy blood sugar.

(Note: ask to make sure that the herbs are either organic or wildcrafted and non-irradiated.)

Support the Free Speech About Science Act and restore freedom of health speech
http://www.naturalnews.com/z028879_censorship_healing_foods.html
For too long, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) have blatantly censored the truth about food, herbs and dietary supplements. These government agencies are supposed to be protecting public health and well-being, but they accomplish precisely the opposite by actively censoring the truth about natural products and working to keep the public ignorant about the health benefits of nutritional products. It's all part of the plan to prop up the profits of Big Pharma by eliminating the competition...
The FDA says, ridiculously, that only pharmaceutical drugs are capable of preventing or treating disease. Even though this is scientifically false, the agency has structured the rules to categorize anything that treats or prevents disease as a drug. So if you eat walnuts, and those walnuts lower high cholesterol (which they do), the FDA declares your walnuts to be "drugs."
Existing law dictates that if anything is advertised as providing health benefits without the FDA's approval, it's automatically considered to be an "unapproved drug", even if it's a common, everyday food like walnuts, cherries, grapes or oranges.
Amazingly, references to peer-reviewed scientific studies are not allowed to be made by companies without permission from the FDA because the agency considers this to be an illegal health claim. So if you sell walnuts, and your website merely links to published scientific studies that describe the cholesterol-lowering benefits of walnuts, then you can be threatened, arrested, imprisoned and fined millions of dollars by the FDA for selling "unapproved drugs."
If you flee the country, you can be then be listed on INTERPOL as an international fugitive wanted for "drug offenses." This is exactly what happened to Greg Caton, who was recently kidnapped from Ecuador by U.S. agents working on behalf of the FDA (http://www.naturalnews.com/z027750_Greg_Caton_FDA.html), brought back to the USA against his will, and sentenced to federal prison.
The FDA thinks walnuts are drugs
If you're skeptical that what I'm saying here is true, take a look at the warning letter the FDA sent to Diamond Food, Inc. back in February concerning the health claims the company had been making about its walnuts...

Billy Best (website)
http://www.billybest.net/index.html
Billy's good health continues, in fact he says he feels better than he has ever felt. He has been tested recently and the tests show that he is in great health. He takes two to four ounces of Essiac a day to keep his immune system boosted and also does at least two 21-day cycles of 714X per year for the same reason. Billy tries to eat carefully, keeping away from processed food, red meat, dairy products and sugar however he isn't as strict with his eating habits as he was when he had cancer. He takes lots of supplements to make up for whatever he doesn't get from his diet. He keeps very active with skateboarding, his favorite activity. He has written a book about his healing journey...

Preparing the Essiac Tea Recipe
http://essiacfacts.com/preparing-the-essiac-tea-recipe/
(See picture of instructions at above link)

Rene Caisse's essiac herbal tea is known worldwide. The formula is no longer secret and the four herbs are easy to obtain as separate ingredients or combined in one of the many related products available today as a direct result of Rene Caisse's continuing work. Many of us have sheep sorrel in our gardens. The most important herb in the formula is actually classified as a pernicious weed. Mary McPherson, Rene's life-long friend and helper verified her formula in an affidavit of December 23, 1994 in Bracebridge, Ontario, Rene's hometown in Canada.

6 cups of burdock root (cut)
1 pound of sheep sorrel herb powdered
1/4 pound of slippery elm bark powdered
1 ounce of Turkish rhubarb root powdered

Mix these ingredients thoroughly and store in glass jar in dark dry cupboard.

Take a measuring cup, use 1 ounce of herb mixture to 32 ounces of water depending on the amount you want to make.

I use 1 cup of mixture to 8 x 32 = 256 ounces of water. Boil hard for 10 minutes (covered) then turn off heat but leave sitting on warm plate over night (covered).

In the morning heat steaming hot and let settle a few minutes, then strain through fine strainer into hot sterilized bottles and sit to cool. Store in dark cool cupboard. Must be refrigerated when opened. When near the last when its thick pour in a large jar and sit in frig overnight then pour off all you [can] without sediment.

This recipe must be followed exactly as written.

I use a granite preserving kettle (10 -- 12 qts), 8 ounce measuring cup, small funnel and fine strainer to fill bottles.

The tea isn't difficult to make and I'm going to take you through the process step-by-step to show you how simple it really is. It's like riding a bicycle or driving a car, once you know how to do it, you never forget.
The Herbs
Picture of herbs used in the essiac tea recipe

Mountain Rose Herbs carries an excellent essiac blend and the individual herbs as well

The original formula used eight herbs and was created for an English woman living in a mining camp by a Native American medicine man in the 1890s. There were at least six different Native American tribes living in northern Ontario at the time and the English woman never mentioned which tribe he came from but it is widely believed that he belonged to the Ojibwe tribe. She told Rene Caisse about the formula 30 years later in 1922. All eight herbs were either native to the region or had become naturalized as a result of immigration from Europe.

The four main herbs were and still are Sheep sorrel, Greater Burdock, Slippery elm, and Turkey rhubarb. Rene Caisse discovered the other four herbs very early on in her research for the formula in the late 1920s. She only ever revealed three of them water cress, periwinkle, and red clover but an eyewitness report from the 1930s suggested very strongly that the eighth herb was gold thread, now becoming increasingly rare since many of its native habitats have been destroyed. The same witness revealed that Rene Caisse continued to include this herb in the formula for a few of the people who were drinking the tea.

If you are buying the herbs yourself, make sure to always choose certified organic herbs. Rene Caisse always insisted that the whole sheep sorrel herb, leaf, stem and root, be included in the formula. Sheep sorrel is the most important herb. The best sheep sorrel spends the winter under snow and is harvested in late spring, May to mid-June, before the flowers open. Three plants like this will keep one person in sheep sorrel for one year.

We will only use the root of the burdock plant. It has to be chopped while it is fresh because it will dry very hard and make it difficult to chop. Slippery elm inner bark is best bought already powdered. Turkey rhubarb root is very easy to grind. It can be bought in pieces, smaller pieces or already powdered. This is enough to prepare an herb mixture that will last one person drinking 30ml, one fluid ounce of the tea, every day for just over a year, or around 15 months.
The Original Essiac Tea Recipe
If it works, don't change it. - Rene Caisse

120g Burdock chopped root
80g Sheep sorrel powdered whole root
20g Slippery elm powdered inner bark
5g Turkey rhubarb powdered root

All together this makes 225g of dried herb tea mix. Mary McPherson used to mix the herbs in a big glass jar and shake them together to mix them up. You can do it that way if you want to or else you can try the cake method as I call it. I normally use the cake method.

First wash and dry your hands thoroughly making sure to clean under your nails and around any rings. Put 5g of Turkey rhubarb root powder into a clean dry bowl. Add 20g of slippery elm powder and rub the two herbs together with your fingers; rub them in well. This makes the Turkey rhubarb root cling to the bark and insures an even distribution of the smallest ingredients in the final mix.

Next put 80g of Sheep sorrel whole herb -- 60 g leaf and stem and 20g root -- and mix together with your fingers again. I don't grind this herb too finely leaf, stem or root. Last, add 120g of Burdock root and mix well. Burdock root is always finely chopped not powdered. This is the herb that is primarily responsible for the variation in color of the tea. The tea should be pale to mid-brown, never a dark brown. It's the Burdock that occasionally turns it a bright Floridian green. Take care not to stir up too much dust. If you are making a larger quantity of the herb mix, it is a good idea to wear a mask while mixing.

This mixture will store quite well in a clear glass jar with a screw on lid and keep in a cool, dry place. A large Mason jar works perfectly for this purpose.
Preparing to make the tea:
Utensils

What you'll Need
Stainless Steel, Enamelware or Glass Pot (Do not use aluminum!)
Glass measuring cup
Stainless steel cooking spoon
Stainless steel sieve
Bottles or mason jars with lids (enough to hold about 1.4 liters of tea)

You need a cooking pan with a well-fitting lid, one that will hold one and a half liters of water without boiling over. It can be enamel, stainless steel, or glass, but no aluminum or copper and no Teflon coated equipment as the tea can react with these materials. That being said, Rene Caisse used an aluminum pan for so many years that it had holes in it before she was persuaded to use something more user-friendly. I like to use a pan with a glass lid so that I can keep an eye on the tea while it is cooking without having to lift the lid.

You need one heat-proof, glass measuring jug; two if you are not confident about pouring the tea from the pan into the jug. I'm going to use two jugs. You need a stainless steel kitchen sieve and a stainless steel cooking spoon. You will need bottles enough to hold 1 liters of tea; either three 500ml bottles or five 300ml bottles, or even brown juice bottles if you have them. A funnel is another option for pouring the tea into bottles. I don't usually bother because it is one more thing you have to sterilize. It's up to you; do whatever you feel the most comfortable with. A bottle brush is an absolute necessity.

It is best to keep one pan that you use especially for making tea. Any other pan will have to be very well scrubbed and sterilized by filling with warm water and boiling with the lid on for 10 minutes. Don't forget to pour out this water before you make the tea.

You're going to make up the tea as a decoction. This means that the herb mixture must be boiled and allowed to stand in the same pan with the lid on for up to 12 hours in order for the active ingredients to be drawn out of the tea.

There has always been some discussion as to whether the Sheep sorrel should be boiled for the same length of time as the other herbs. Well, Rene Caisse boiled the Sheep sorrel along with the rest of the herbs and like she said, "If it works, don't change it."
Making the essiac tea

The proportion of herb mixture to water is very easy to remember. You use 10g of herb mixture to one liter of water. We're going to mix up 15g of herb mixture to 1 liters of water. This will make enough to have for one person taking 30mg -- one fluid ounce -- once a day for one month. If you want to make more, you can mix up 20g of herb in two liters of water, or 30g to herb to three liters of water, whichever you wish.

Now, what water do we use? Now this can really start some arguments. Rene Caisse took her water from a spring near her clinic. You cannot use tap water and that's a fact, not unless it has been thoroughly filtered and the filter has been thoroughly maintained. Many people do very well using valve mineral water which has a very low sodium content and a pH of seven. Other people only use spring water stored in glass bottles. At the end of the day, make the most of what you've got. I use purified spring water.

We're going to work in liters and grams because English and American pints are completely different, and the English don't use quarts anymore. Most measuring cups or scales on either side of the Atlantic measure liters as well as pints and grams as well as ounces. So we're going to opt to use the European system this time as a useful in between way.

While your water is heating up, you can measure out the herb mixture. We need 15g. Add the herb mixture and stir thoroughly just as the water is just beginning to come to the boil. You want to cook the tea at a rolling boil; that's just above simmering, but not boiling over. You will have to adjust the heat accordingly. If you are using electricity it is probably a good idea to transfer to another hot plate. Put the lid back on and set a timer for 10 minutes.
Heating the Tea

Cook 15 grams of herb mixture in 1.5 liters of spring water and boil for 10 minutes. You can start preparing the utensils while waiting and give the bottles and the jugs a good scrub. You can use the bottle brush on the sieve as well. Like the pan, it is always good to keep a sieve for the tea. Make sure all the utensils are well rinsed. Leave them to dry on a tea towel until you are ready to pour the tea.

Turn off the gas, or remove the pan from the heat as soon as the ten minutes are up. There will probably be some of the herbs stuck to the pan during cooking. Take the clean spoon and pour scolding water from the kettle over it. Now scrape the residual herbs from the side of the pan and stir them well into the tea. Put the lid back on the pan and leave it completely undisturbed for 12 hours. If you have to leave the tea longer, no more than 18 hours. Make sure you put the pan in a cool dark place. Put it in a fridge if you live in a hot climate. Wash the spoon and rinse it thoroughly and leave under the tea towel with the rest of the utensils.

There are several ways to sterilize the utensils and this is important because there are no preservatives in the tea. You can either put everything in the steamer for 20 minutes, or else you can put the bottles and the jugs in the oven, again for 20 minutes, then boil the sieve, the spoon and the bottle tops. Sterilize all the utensils either in a steamer for 20 minutes or by boiling the tops, sieve, and spoon and heating the jugs and bottles in the oven at 150C/300F.

Never, ever use bleach or any other harsh chemicals for sterilizing any of the equipment. If you don't have an oven or a steamer, you can use one of the cleaning agents like Milton for cleaning baby bottles. NOTE: If using one of the chemical baby equipment sterilizing solutions, always remember to rinse away any residual chemical at least three times in cooled boiled water before use. Always Remember ... Dirty Tools Make Moldy Tea!
Final steps: Re-heating the tea after steeping for 12 hours.

This is where you have to pay attention because you need to heat it to steaming hot, not to boiling. Never re-boil the tea.

Always remember ... Never re-boil the tea!!

When you can see the herbs are beginning to bubble, keep watching the pan and get ready. When it is hot and steamy and just beginning to simmer but not boil, remove it from the heat and allow it to stand for a few minutes to allow the herbs to settle. Using oven gloves or a tea towel, take out the bottles and the jugs one by one and stand them on a heat proof surface on the table.

Now lift the lid on the tea. You should see that the herbs are beginning to settle. Using the smaller jug, carefully lift up the tea trying to disturb the sediment as little as possible, then straining it through the sieve. The tea will darken slightly and the sediment will drop to the bottom of the bottle as it cools. Don't put the scooping jug down on the table until you are through dipping the tea. It can stand in the sterilizing pan in between scoops. The sediment from the herbs can go back onto the garden.

Now pour the prepared tea into the bottles and put the lids on as soon as each bottle is full. Never filter the tea.

Always remember -- Never filter the tea!

The sediment at the bottom of each bottle is normal and should not detract from the keeping quality of the tea. You may find the last bottle has more sediment than the others, but this will soon settle down once the bottle is cold. Some people like to shake up the bottle and drink that as well. I don't, but it is a matter of personal taste. I don't like the bits between my teeth.

Some settlement is normal in a bottle of Essiac Tea. However, if you don't pay enough attention to the sterilizing process, or you forget to put the bottle back in the fridge after you've been using it, you may notice after four or five days you have a furball of mold on top of the sediment in the bottom of the bottle. It will be quite distinct; you'll not mistake it. When you take the top of the bottle the smell will be very rancid and it is disgusting. There is only one place to put it and that is the sink.

Dirty tools and forgetting the rules make moldy tea!
So let's review the rules again:
Always store the herbs in a cool, dark place in a screw top jar.
Always sterilize the utensils.
Always make sure the lids are on the bottles before you put them in the fridge.
Never leave open bottles out of the fridge.
And there are two more very important rules:
Don't ever microwave the tea! Not at any stage
Don't ever freeze it!

The microwave and the freezer completely destroy all the goodness in the tea.

Rene Caisse recommended drinking 30ml of the tea, that is one fluid ounce diluted into two fluid ounces of water, preferably at bedtime, or you can drink it first thing in the morning if it is easier for you. This is a 30ml measure. It tastes good, not bitter or sour. It's not thick. Don't add anything else to it, drink it like it is. Even animals like drinking it. If you must though, you can add a bit of honey or stevia.
Dosage

Drink 1 fluid ounce/3ml of the tea diluted with 2 fluid ounces/60ml of hot water. The tea can also be taken undiluted but has a stronger taste. Many people like to add honey or stevia to sweeten the tea. If taken undiluted, you should drink extra water afterward to avoid side effects caused by toxins being released. Drink once a day at bedtime.

Well, now that wasn't so difficult. Preparing the essiac tea recipe can seem like a lot of work, but it's worth it and after the first time it's a breeze. If possible, I recommend you grow your own sheep sorrel and burdock for quality and to save money. If you can't grow your own, the Internet is the next best resource for all of the essiac herbs.

What is Essiac Tea
http://essiacfacts.com/#what-is-essiac-tea

(See above link for pictures and more information about each herb)

Ingredients of Essiac Tea

Essiac is an herbal decoction that has become well known for it's effectiveness in treating a wide variety of chronic illnesses as well as being an excellent natural detox method. Essiac tea benefits the entire body. It's made with these four herbs;

The root of the Burdock plant
The entire Sheep sorrel plant
The inner bark of the Slippery Elm tree
The roots of the Turkey Rhubarb plant (indian rhubarb and other varieties have also been used but are less potent)

The herbs are boiled for a short time and then left to steep for 8-12 hours. The tea is then boiled once more and then strained. Each herb in the essiac tea recipe has roots in natural folk medicine. Sheep sorrel and burdock have been used for centuries to treat cancer and other illnesses. Slippery elm bark and turkey rhubarb are known for their healing and detoxifying abilities. Each herb has it's own benefits, but when combined, these herbs work together in a synergistic fashion to provide an amazing health effect on the body.

Does Essiac Really Cure Cancer?
http://essiacfacts.com/#does-essiac-really-cure-cancer

Essiac tea is not a miracle cure. Although it has many anti-cancer properties and immune benefits, every situation is different. There are so many factors that can affect the outcome of cancer treatment. It should not be used as a primary treatment for advanced cancers but should be used in combination with other natural and conventional treatments and makes and excellent addition to any cancer diet. This remedy is best used against early diagnosed cancers that do not have rapid growth and are not spreading aggressively.

*** Important ***
Although this tea has been used to cure advanced cancers, it is not commonly administered like it was in Rene's clinic. Rene Caisse used locally grown herbs to prepare her formula and administered it to her patients within 48 hours of preparation. Commercially prepared mixes just cannot offer that same level of freshness and potency. For maximum potency, it is highly recommended that you make your own tea.

[Make sure that the herbs you use are organic (or wildcrafted) and non-irradiated.]

The amazing saga of a teenager who ran away from chemotherapy and beat cancer naturally
by Paul Fassa
http://www.naturalnews.com/043582_natural_cures_cancer_chemotherapy.html

(NaturalNews) Remember the story of a 16-year-boy who ran away from his Massachusetts home in 1994 to avoid chemotherapy? His name was Billy Best, and his story was a nationwide sensation while he was in hiding.

Now, he is very healthy and cancer-free, back home working in a local health food store, consulting parents of children who are pushed into chemo and participating in medical school seminars on patient choice.

He continues to be interviewed by alternative news sites whenever a story breaks on families having to become fugitives for refusing chemo and radiation on their children. Now, he also has a book out, as told to writer Linda Conti.

It's called The Billy Best Story: Beating Cancer with Alternative Medicine, and it has 23 five-star rave reviews on Amazon.

A summary of Billy's story
From the bits and pieces of media coverage since the time Billy ran off, one gets the impression that Billy wound up in California. And from there he discovered cancer-healing protocols for his Hodgkin's lymphoma.

But actually, he never got to California. That was his Greyhound bus destination originally, but he wound up in Houston, TX.

Instead of roaming the streets as many run-away teens do, he was fortunate enough to meet up with fellow skateboarders who helped house him. Billy had no idea of the nationwide hunt for him. His parents had contacted several national news outlets out of concern for his whereabouts and health.

But one day, the father of one of Billy's skateboarder buddies said he saw Billy on one of the TV shows featuring his runaway from home after five chemo treatments. So Billy decided to return home with one provision: no chemotherapy.

Instead, he would decide on alternative methods. His nationwide exposure had elicited many suggestions from which he could choose.

Billy chose Gaston Naessens' 714-X and Essiac tea
Gaston Naessens had fled France to be able to administer injections of 714X in Quebec, Canada, but soon ran into problems there also. His solution of camphor, nitrogen and mineral salts is still manufactured in Canada, but it's banned in the USA.

Billy was taught how to inject it himself in nearby Canada, where he could purchase it, and still performs occasional maintenance injections.

*** Important ***
Like potent hemp or cannabis oil, 714-X is on the Medical Mafia's no-no list and is difficult to get and administer. But, as long as it's not promoted as a cure, Essiac tea is very inexpensive and widely available. The trick is getting the highest quality herbs and making your own tea.

Reports of cancer patients not benefiting from Essiac tea are usually because they used teas purchased off the shelves of health food stores, which ironically are also more expensive than buying the herbs and making it yourself.

But Canadian nurse Rene Caisse cured thousands from her small-town clinic. After she died, authorities raided her clinic and destroyed all the records they could find. But the tea's recipe was discovered by Dr. Gary Glum, D.C., with one of Rene's former associates and resurfaced nationally (http://www.naturalnews.com/026928_cancer_tea_cure.html)

Unfortunately, few understand the importance of having the exact herbs that Caisse used: Turkey rhubarb, burdock, slippery elm, and sheep sorrel with roots, organic or wild-crafted and not irradiated. Many Essiac tea providers today cheat a little, using inferior or irradiated herbs without sheep sorrel roots.

Cheating even a little corrupts this tea too much. It's my experience that you can be assured of the highest quality herbs and instructions for making the tea here (http://renecaissetea.com).

How do I Prepare Essiac Tea?
http://essiacfacts.com/#how-do-i-prepare-essiac-tea

Here is the true essiac tea recipe that was published in 1988 by Dr. Gary Glum and later publicly confirmed under oath by Mary McPherson, Rene's friend and assistant at her Bracebridge clinic for cancer patients. At that time, Mary was the only one besides Rene who knew the essiac recipe and had actually prepared it. You can find the word for word transcription of her affidavit here along with more information on the essiac tea recipe. I find its easier and more accurate to measure the ingredients by weight so I've also included a recipe measured in grams.
How to Make Essiac Tea

6 cups (1 lbs.)of burdock root cut
1 pound of sheep sorrel herb powdered
1/4 pound of slippery elm bark powdered
1 ounce of Turkish rhubarb root powdered

Mix these ingredients thoroughly and store in glass jar in dark dry cupboard.Take a measuring cup, use 1 ounce of herb mixture to 32 ounces of water depending on the amount you want to make.I use 1 cup of mixture to 8 x 32 = 256 ounces of water. Boil hard for 10 minutes (covered) then turn off heat but leave sitting on warm plate over night (covered).In the morning heat steaming hot and let settle a few minutes, then strain through fine strainer into hot sterilized bottles and sit to cool. Store in dark cool cupboard. Must be refrigerated when opened. When near the last when its thick pour in a large jar and sit in frig overnight then pour off all you [can] without sediment.This recipe must be followed exactly as written.I use a granite preserving kettle (10 -- 12 qts), 8 ounce measuring cup, small funnel and fine strainer to fill bottles.
Essiac Formula Measured by Weight

Essiac Recipe Depends on Using the Right Plants
http://essiacfacts.com/essiac-recipe-depends-on-using-the-right-plants/

Here are some important factors about the four ingredients in Essiac:

Sheep Sorrel: This herb is not readily available commercially. It's distribution was restricted after Rene's death. This plant is common in Muskoka and harvesting it yourself will ensure you have the right ingredient. here is a picture of sheep sorrel as shown in Sheila Snow's "The Essence of Essiac." The bitter taste will assure you that it is Sheep Sorrel.

Burdock: This is regarded by most of us as a nuisance - especially the prickly seed cases in the fall, which we call burrs. The root must be harvested in October and it must be from a first year plant (there should be no center stock.) The roots look like carrots and can be cut into slices to dry - then pulverized in a blender. The dried product has a sweet taste

Slippery Elm Bark: This herb is available at any reputable health food store and it must be a light brown powder. It tastes much like flour.

Turkish Rhubarb Root: This product may be purchased in health food stores, as a powder, or in root form. The plants are native to China and Tibet. Our native rhubarb may be substituted, but the plant must be at least three years old.

Of the four herbs, Mary is most concerned about the availability of real Sheep Sorrel. "I have seen products called Sheep sorrel," she says, "but it clearly is not what we know as Sheep Sorrel."

Below is Rene Caisse's recipe as transmitted to her friend and colleague, Mary McPherson:
Essiac

6 1/2 cups of burdock root (cut
1 pound of sheep sorrel herb (powdered)
1/4 pound of slippery elm bark (powdered)
1 ounce of turkish rhubarb root (powdered)

Mix these ingredients thoroughly and store in glass jar in dark dry cupboard.
Take a measuring cup, use 1 ounce of herb mixture to 32 ounces of water depending on the amount you want to make.

I use 1 cup of mixture to 8 x 32 = 256 ounces of water. Boil hard for 10 minutes (covered) then turn off heat but leave sitting on warm plate over night (covered).
In the morning heat steaming hot and let settle a few minutes, then strain through fine strainer into hot sterilized bottles and sit to cool. Store in dark cool cupboard. Must be refrigerated when opened. When near the last when its thick pour in a large jar and sit in frig overnight then pour off all you [can] without sediment.

This recipe must be followed exactly as written.

I use a granite preserving kettle (10 -- 12 qts), 8 ounce measuring cup, small funnel and fine strainer to fill bottles.

Some Findings About Making and Taking Essiac Tea
http://essiacfacts.com/making-and-taking-essiac-tea/

Use common sense and talk to your doctor or office nurse before trying any remedy, keep them informed about alternatives and supplements you start taking. If your doctor never heard of essiac, tell him the names of the herbs in it. He may have good reason that you should not take essiac. Then again, a very "conservative doctor" may not know a thing about alternatives, supplements or herbs (and may think you are foolish to ask about them).

Know whether bulk herbs are cut or powdered before you order them. The Rene Caisse recipe directions specify herbs should be powdered except for Burdock root, which should be "cut". That said, there are several curious things to consider about the recipe, such as the soft-tissue Sheep sorrel. Herbalists say soft-tissue herbs should not be subjected to water temperature over 140 - and sea level boiling point of water is 212. Well, that means traditional Rene Caisse recipe simmers poor Sheep sorrel to death. Solution: buy separated herbs so the Sheep sorrel can be added after 10-minute simmer (and rhubarb root decreased to control diarrhea).

2 gallons of water per cup of herbs is the traditional Rene Caisse ratio and US/Canadian "cup measure" is expressed in fluid ounces (not weight ounces) - whether it's a cup of water, cup of flour or cup of herbs. US measuring cups are marked (in metric too) for fluid ounces, like 4 oz. and 8 oz. So one cup of herbs is 8 oz. and 1/2 cup of herbs is 4 oz. (See the Recipe page for approximate number of bottles of tea made using various amounts of water and herbs.) What is confusing about "ounces" is in buying something nonfluid like herbs which by law is expressed in ounces of weight, which has nothing to with fluid ounces.

Reheating to 180 helps prevent bacterial growth and mold after the 10-12 hour steep, but don't let the tea come to a rolling boil again. Bottle your tea before the temperature drops, using bottles that have just been sterilized. See how to sterilize for several methods, choose the one that is easiest for you. People usually bottle (very carefully) while the tea is steaming hot. But if you prefer adding the Sheep sorrel after the reheat, use a candy thermometer to see when the tea has cooled down to around 140 before adding it.

Use a stainless steel strainer or sieve to catch the herb residue. Do not use cheesecloth to strain, or put the herbs in a "boiling bag" to brew them, because cloth mesh prevents important stuff from ending up in the tea - like the gelatinous mucilage of Burdock root and especially Slippery Elm. One straining is enough, repeated straining just lets the tea cool down more.

TIP: the herb residue (sludge, sediment, whatever you want to call it) all settles nicely on the bottom of the kettle during the 10-12 hour steep. If you slowly and carefully pour off the cooled tea into another kettle before the reheat and then reheat the almost residue-free tea, there may be little or no straining to do while bottling your hot tea (and some people like some residue in their tea anyway). But, buying another Stainless steel kettle is more expense!

Save the residue, which really isn't "spent", to use as swell garden compost or as a poultice bandaged on skin areas. The essiac seller at herbalhealer.com has photos showing before-and-after results of using poultices on a fellow's knee area to allegedly help heal it of a lesion or tumorous something.

Bottles for your tea don't have to be "Amber Boston Rounds" the bottle page describes "freebies" that will do just fine. Many use clear glass jars with mouths big enough to be sterilized in the dishwasher.

Store unopened bottles in a dark, cool place like a rarely-opened closet or drawer, or put each bottle in a brown paper bag, to protect the tea from prolonged exposure to light (same with the dry herbs). Once a bottle is opened, it has to be refrigerated. The 13 -- 14 bottles (16 oz size) from a two-gallon brew batch can all be crammed into refrigerator door shelves, but some people like quart bottles (32 oz) better. If any tea you are using gets moldy or peculiar, dispose of it - "when in doubt throw it out". But save and re-use the bottle.

Don't microwave essiac tea to warm it up for drinking, warm it up on the stove, dilute it with hot water or drink it cold right out of the bottle. Reasons and theories that microwaving or freezing essiac tea damages its potency range from "alteration of molecular structure" to "disturbance of spiritual energies and vibrations".

Increase your daily intake of water (which should be around 8 glasses anyway) if you take essiac, to more than 1/2 gallon per day, the ideal amount being (gulp) a gallon of water per day. Plain water - juice, coffee, tea, beer or soda pop don't count. Coffee is a diuretic, you lose more water than a cup of coffee provides. Don't drink coffee or tea within an hour of taking essiac tea, apparently the tannins interfere with absorption of some essiac components like iron. That does make it difficult for early-morning coffee drinkers, breakfast lovers! Well, do you ever wake up at 3:00 am or so to visit the bathroom? Visit the fridge too - for your essiac.

Don't take your essiac tea at the same time with anything else like medications, vitamins or other supplements because of essiac's "empty stomach rule". Take them at different times in the day, at least an hour apart from drinking essiac tea. And, don't add food products like honey, cream or sugar to essiac to make it taste better, that is the same as violating "empty stomach before-and-after" rule. Most people don't mind essiac's boiled-weeds taste, others get used to it and even like it.

All these traditional DO and DON'T rules - are they writ in stone? Nope - a friend of mine gets up, slugs down an ounce of cold essiac tea straight from the bottle and gets the coffee-maker going, in 10 minutes the coffee is ready and it, too, is slugged down. Friend has faithfully taken essiac this way for 12 years, doctor shakes his head at any test results and says, "I don't know what you're doing but whatever it is, just keep doing it."

Essiac is relatively safe to take according to 75 years of anecdotal records. The herbs are used as foods by some cultures and essiac doesn't interfere with treatments like chemo or radiation. Nevertheless, see "Possible Side Effects and Cautions About Taking Essiac Tea" - possible, not probable.

Tips for Making Essiac Tea
This brewing tip is beautifully simple and logical:

Subject: No Residue To Strain
From: Carol
After the 12 hour steep, the herb residue or "sludge" is all settled to the bottom. Carefully, slowly pour off the tea into a second stainless steel kettle, leaving the sludge behind. Then do your reheat of the tea in the second kettle and bottle it - it will not need to be strained! I hope people will try this tip and find it helpful.
Bob Karjala discovered a swell tip for sterilizing bottles in a microwave oven:

Sterilizing bottles: add about 1 ounce of distilled water to each, putting on plastic caps loosely, and microwave several bottles at a time for about 15 minutes until the steam has sterilized the caps and bottles. Of course, if you have metal caps, don't put them in the microwave but boil them separately. After cooling, the caps can be tightened and the bottles stored until ready for use or they may be filled immediately with the hot tea. If your microwave is big enough, you can do 13 -- 14 (16 oz size) bottles needed for two-gallon batch at the same time. However, the cautions are important:

The bottles will blow up if the caps are screwed on so tight that steam can't escape.

Put 1 or 2 oz water in each bottle, put in too much and all you have is hot water but not enough steam to do the sterilizing.

Microwave for 15 to 20 minutes to do the steam sterilizing. Afterward open the microwave door but don't take the bottles out immediately - they are incredibly hot. Then use a mitt or pot-holders to take the bottles out.

Metal caps can't be microwaved but method will probably work with no caps on bottles.

Bob also said: "The only thing I would add is to possibly increase the microwave time when doing a large number of bottles simultaneously. This of course varies with different maximum power levels of individual ovens. You want the water in all bottles brought to a sustained steaming boil."
This is a step-by-step way to brew and bottle (16 oz. size) using the above tips:

As your essiac tea is consumed, rinse out and fill each empty bottle with water to keep residue from drying in it.

Start your brewing sometime in the evening. It takes about 45 minutes for 2 gallons of distilled water to reach a boil. Stir in the herb mix and when it starts to simmer again, put the lid on. After the 10 minute low boil, shut the stove off and let the stainless steel kettle sit on the stove all night (don't lift the lid).

In the morning or 10-12 hours later, without stirring or disturbing the sludge that settled in the bottom, carefully pour the tea into another stainless steel or large stovetop-glass kettle.

Reheat the tea in the second kettle (or emptied, washed first kettle) barely to the boiling point and shut off the stove. During the reheat, prepare your bottles.

To prepare the bottles, fill them 1/3 full of hot tap water with a squirt of an antibacterial cleaner like "409 Antibacterial". Dish detergents create bubbles which are too hard to rinse away. Wash the caps with the antibacterial kitchen cleaner too.

Give each bottle a good shake and swab the insides with a bottle brush. Set each bottle under running hot water faucet until overflow runs clear, then pour water out.

Then fill each bottle with 1 inch or so of distilled water for the microwave and *loosely* screw the lids on (if some pop off while microwaving, it doesn't matter).

Microwave bottles for 15 -- 20 minutes to steam sterilize. We microwave all 14 bottles (16 oz size) needed for a so-called 2-gallon batch at the same time.

Afterward let the microwave door stand open for a few minutes. Use hotpads to take bottles out of microwave, they are incredibly hot. Pour out any remaining water from them.

Set the hot kettle of tea in the sink and one at a time fill the bottles with tea using a glass measuring cup, in the sink next to the kettle if possible.

Screw on the lids and let the bottles of tea cool on the kitchen counter, tightening down the lids after an hour or so. Refrigerate or store in a dark, cool place.

Brewing and bottling gets easier every time you do it. If you are intimidated by the recipe directions, Rene Caisse is reported to have "thrown a handful of this and a handful of that" into her kettle. So relax, there's really not much you can do to screw up the making of your essiac tea.

Essiac Tonics and Extracts
http://essiacfacts.com/essiac-tonics-and-extracts/

The herbal mixture Essiac has emerged as one of the most popular forms of alternative treatment in the past century. Originally created by an Ojibwa healer, the mixture was promoted by Canadian nurse Rene Caisse as a treatment for multiple health conditions, most famously cancer.

Caisse only administered Essiac in tea form during her lifetime, but with the increasing popularity of Essiac and growing number of manufacturers wishing to produce Essiac, different forms of administration are now available. In addition to tea, the mixture can be taken as a tonic/tincture or capsule. Each delivery method has its pros and cons to consider when deciding among them, including varying levels of effectiveness, convenience, ease of storage, and price, among other factors.
What is Essiac Tonic?

A tincture is a concentrated herbal extract usually made with alcohol. It is made by steeping the essiac herbs in alcohol for days to weeks, then straining the solution. Most herbal tinctures use ethanol as the solvent, though alternative solvents exist. One alternative solvent is glycerol, which has significantly less alcohol, for those unaccustomed to herbal extracts. For external/topical application, ether and vinegar can be used. Glycerite, a non-alcoholic option, also exists for those who abstain from alcohol consumption.

The beneficial molecules in Essiac can be either water-soluble (polar/charged) or non-water soluble (nonpolar/uncharged). Calling on the old adage, "Like dissolves like," which posits that polar solvents (such as water) dissolve charged solutes and that nonpolar solvents dissolve uncharged solutes, this presents a potential advantage of tinctures over the traditional tea version of Essiac.

If only water is used to brew the herbs in tea, this means that helpful uncharged molecules are unlikely to be adequately dissolved in the brew. The advantage of a tincture over a solely water-based formula is that having alcohol as a solvent effectively dissolves both types of solutes. One can also change the ratio of ethanol to water in order to make tinctures with different solute concentrations, due to the differential abilities of the alcohol and water content to dissolve various molecules. Notably, glycerite does not have the advantage of dissolving uncharged molecules.
Benefits of Essiac Tonic

As already discussed, certain molecules are more soluble in alcohol, and thus a tincture will have greater availability of those molecules. In terms of convenience, a tincture is more easily stored compared to tea, as it is does not need to be refrigerated and also requires less storage space due to its concentrated nature. Compared to capsules, extracts are similar in terms of storage. Commercial tinctures are also easier to prepare than teas, which require a lengthy boiling process. Compared to capsules, though, tinctures are generally considered less convenient, as one must mix the tincture with a beverage. Another advantage over tea is that the alcohol in essiac tonic acts as a preservative, whereas teas are more prone to spoilage.

DisadvantagesMany Essiac proponents are opposed to any Essiac formulation other than the original essiac tea recipe, mostly because tea was the only form used by Caisse in her reported 50 years of success. In addition, it is unclear how the alcohol contained in a tincture affects the properties attributed to the tea or whether alcohol denatures any compounds in Essiac. In terms of price, extracts tend to be more expensive than tea, but comparable to or less expensive than essiac capsules.

Essiac comes in a variety of forms, from the traditional tea, to tinctures/tonics and capsules. Caisse used and researched Essiac tea exclusively, but there are several possible advantages to the other forms, as well as drawbacks. Unfortunately, no known studies have been conducted to compare the efficacy of the different forms. The decision to use one form versus another relies primarily on personal preference and beliefs regarding the importance of remaining true to the original formulation.

Essiac Tea for Dogs and Other Pets
http://essiacfacts.com/essiac-tea-for-dogs-and-other-pets/

How much essiac tea should a dog or cat be given each day?

While Rene Caisse's work with her formula did not involve pets, Sheila Snow and Mali Klein (currently the most highly regarded authors of authentic Rene Caisse information) say this about pets in their 1999 book Essiac Essentials: "As a guide for treating animals, it is best to assess the dosage according to their weight. A cat weighing eleven pounds is doing well on 2ml daily whereas a large and heavy dog of 120 pounds would need an adult dose of 30ml daily."

1/16 cup = 1/2 oz. (fluid ounce) = 1 Tbsp. (tablespoon) = 3 tsp. (teaspoons) = 15 ml (milliliters)

Essiac Tea Daily Dosages for Pets

Pet Weight Milliliter Teaspoon Tablespoon Liquid Ounce
under 5 lbs .75 ml 1/8 tsp
5 lbs 1.25 ml 1/4 tsp
10 lbs 2.5 ml 1/2 tsp
20 lbs 5 ml 1 tsp
40 lbs 15 ml 3 tsp 1 Tbsp 1/2 oz
60 lbs 20 ml 4 tsp
80 lbs 25 ml 5 tsp
100+ lbs 30 ml 6 tsp 2 Tbsp 1 oz

The best results we have heard about with pets have been animals who had a much larger dose than these recommended doses. I think that the best hope for good results is to increase the dose as much as possible. We don't know what Ms Caisse was really doing. There may have been something different about the sorrel, and she may have been using more parts of the plant than we can get now (short of growing it). She may have been adding some other ingredient that we don't know about. Whatever the reason, the dose she recommends does perhaps help animals feel better, and it may extend their lives, but probably won't make them better. As an aside, she did not vary the dose by weight with humans as far as I have ever heard, a 100 pound woman got the same dose as a 200 pound man.

An issue with large doses for pets is the amount of Rhubarb they end up taking. Rhubarb is a laxative, and that is probably the main reason it is needed in essiac. In the first 70 years of the 20th century chemotherapy regimens tended to cause constipation, and that is not the case anymore. Dogs have much shorter digestive systems than people, and they are much more susceptible to diarrhea. So the larger dose of essiac must be balanced against the amount that can be taken without causing diarrhea. One way to decide what the dose for a pet ought to be is to increase the amount until they get diarrhea and then back off.
How much essiac should I buy, and should it be pre-made bottled or a dry mix?

Herb sellers/essiac companies are geared for human consumption and that puts pet owners at a disadvantage because small animals consume relatively small amounts. You can find small 1 oz. packets of dry essiac herbs but they are often outrageously priced. However, larger packages of herbs can be divided into the correct amount to make smaller amounts of tea at one time. I make tea a quart at a time. That way less has to be thrown out. You can even make a pint at a time. There is disagreement about making such a small amount. Some people think that the tea is not the same when you don't make at least a gallon.

With health food store ready-to-use bottled essiac tea, the options are expensive. You can find bottled 17 fluid ounce Flor-Essence online and in local health food stores, and they are each about $25 per bottle. You might feel the cost is worth it. Flor-essence is an 8 herb formulation. You can also find essiac in a tonic form. It is more concentrated than the other teas and requires a smaller dose, possibly making it easier to administer to picky animals. It also contains 18% alcohol, which allows it to keep much longer. Another form of essiac can be found in capsules. The liquid is removed and the powder that is left is put in capsules. I have seen this, it is interesting and might be much easier to get into some animals. A few people have reported very good results with their pets with the capsules. Many sources say not to use them because they are inferior, but it isn't clear to me that there's a good enough reason for that. I know of some people who are taking both the tea and the capsules, among other things. It isn't clear what the end result will be, but they are improving right now.
3. How long can you keep essiac tea after opening it?

The common wisdom and the essiac marketers all say an opened bottle of essiac tea will keep in the refrigerator two weeks or more. I think that essiac tea made from the traditional recipe begins to spoil after about 4 days. Some of the essiac tea that is sold, although made from the four essiac herbs, is not the traditional recipe, and one reason for that is to allow the tea to keep longer. If the tea is sour it is not the traditional essiac recipe. It may very well keep longer than four days. I think the sour teas have more sorrel, which is very acidic and will discourage mold. But they are not the essiac recipe that is considered "correct". It isn't possible to say whether the traditional recipe is better or not. I would be uncomfortable about very large doses of tea with these formulations, which have a smaller ratios of burdock and slippery elm to buffer the sorrel.
4. How long can dry herbs be stored?

The way dry herbs are stored dramatically effects how long they will keep. If you store them in plastic containers in light places they will not keep very long. Plastic bags are not a good choice for storing herbs. If you store them under a vacuum seal (for instance using a Foodsaver and Ball jars) in glass jars in a dark cool place they can keep a very long time. When you buy any dry herbs, whether they are mixed already or separate, it is a good idea to become familiar with how they smell. When they lose their fragrance they are not good anymore. Leafy herbs do not keep as long as roots and stems. Cut herbs or chunks keep longer than powdered herbs, especially if they are not stored very carefully. As a rule of thumb dry herbs can be kept for a year, but this is a very general rule, totally dependent on how you care for them.
5. How do I make essiac tea for my pet?

When brewing the essiac tea recipe for your pet, you can make a pint or quart of tea at a time (instead of the usual 1 or 2 gallons in marketer directions) in a 1-2 quart stainless steel, enameled, or Pyrex glass pot with lid. Choose one of these directions to make 1 pint or 1 quart essiac tea. Powdered herbs will usually have chunks of burdock in them, they are still powdered. If your herbs are all chunks and stems and leaves they are cut/sifted (c/s)

1. One quart boiling distilled water, add 2 Tablespoons powdered herbs OR 4 Tablespoons of C/S herbs, stir, boil 10 minutes.

2. One pint boiling distilled water, add 1 Tablespoon powdered herbs OR 2 Tablespoons of C/S herbs, stir, boil 10 minutes.

After the 10 minute boil with lid on, allow pot to cool enough to put in the refrigerator and let steep for 10-12 hours or overnight. Reheat just to simmer point to kill bacteria and then pour hot tea into hot sterilized bottle using funnel and stainless steel sieve to catch residue. The residue (sludge) can be refrigerated and saved for skin poultices or used as garden compost.

Regarding final results, you will always end up with less tea than expected (as much as 1/4 less) due to water loss due to boil evaporation and absorption by residue. However, brewing the tea is so easy that making it fresh every few days can become a simple routine. See these pages for tips about bottles you can use and how to sterilize them in a microwave oven.
6. Besides essiac, what other supplements and remedies are worth trying?

Here are some suggestions:
Last summer I ran across lactoferrin. Right now I would use lactoferrin with any cancer. It is an extract of bovine colostrum, and it may be angiogenic, which means it may deprive tumors of their blood supply. It also is a very good immune system booster. If it does nothing it will at least not hurt them. You can get it at most health food stores. I get the Jarrow 250 mg lactoferrin. If one of my human sized dogs had cancer I would give them 1500 mg a day.

Reishe mushroom extract is the next thing I would use. It is also widely available. There are many formulations that include a lot of other ingredients, so it is necessary to be sure you get plain reishi mushroom extract. This comes in capsules of standardized extract.

Red Clover/Blue Violet Leaf as tea (equal parts both) or capsules. Because these two herbs should be steeped but not boiled, they could be added to essiac tea after the 10 minute boil. The 8 herb essiac products already have red clover in them, but not blue violet leaf.

Flax seed oil mixed with cottage cheese sometimes helps, a human or giant 100 pound dog would take 1 tablespoon flax seed oil blended into 1/4 cup cottage cheese three times a day (cottage cheese or yogurt acts as a necessary co-activator). According to animal authorities Mary Wulff-Tilford and Greg Tilford (authors of "All You Ever Wanted to Know About Herbs For Pets"), most pets and cats in particular do not get enough Omega 3 fats and flax seed is the best source for them. A recent issue of Whole Dog Journal has an article about flaxseed oil and cottage cheese, also see this page for info on the Budwig protocol. The best flax seed oil is at barleans.com. You need to keep it refrigerated as it spoils easily, and you would want to make tiny quantities fresh each day (you could eat the excess yourself, it is guaranteed good for you). You need cold pressed flax seed oil. It must not be heated and and must be refrigerated. If you use ground flax seed you need to use three times as much. Adjust the dose based on the weight of your pet.

Coenzyme Q-10 is good (but expensive), it needs to be given in fat. It would probably work added to flax seed oil + cottage cheese. A giant dog needs 600mg CoQ-10 a day, in 6 doses. An average (40 lb) dog could be given 300mg daily, a small dog or average cat 150mg. Capsules containing powdered CoQ-10 (it should be a bright yellow powder) can be opened and mixed with fat. The formulations mixed with oil in gel capsules are not as good.

Pycnogenol and grape seed extract are excellent anti-oxidants for dogs but I do not know how cats react to them.

Another thing you might look into is IP6 and Inositol.

Diet is very important, your pet should be eating food made from human grade ingredients. I no longer feed my dogs anything made with ingredients I would hesitate to eat myself. Dog foods made with human grade ingredients will say so on web sites or possibly in pamphlets but they may not say so on the bag. If no source says they are made from human grade ingredients, you can be pretty sure the food is not made with human grade ingredients. Some dog food manufacturers are trying to skate around this by using other words, mostly they don't mean anything. I don't know if "USDA meats" means that it is considered fit for human consumption

Essiac Tea : Are 8 Herbs Better than 4?
http://essiacfacts.com/4-herb-vs-8-herb/

There are sources suggesting that the original recipe for Essiac Tea given to Rene Caisse consisted of eight herbs. Others state that the original recipe was four plants and the creation of the eight ingredient recipe was a joint effort with a company afterwards to enhance the mixture and make it more palatable. Another report is that the eight ingredient formula was purchased from a colleague of Miss Caisse's after her death. Whichever is valid is not as important as the confidence deserving any recipe to which Miss Caisse had influence. Her experience, knowledge and passion of the treatment had no equal.

Whatever the original recipe was is now irrelevant. We know Miss Caisse labored many years in testing, improving and refining the original recipe. She performed her devotion to Essiac open to the professional scrutiny of her times and was consistently praised and her work supported.

The 4 Herb Recipe

In the core recipe the following four ingredients are essential.

Sheep sorrel
Burdock root
Slippery elm bark
Turkey rhubarb root

8 Herb Recipe

An eight herb formula is still currently marketed. What do the additional four ingredients add to the mixture?

Kelp
Blessed thistle
Red clover
Watercress

Understanding the phytonutrient contributions to the mixture from the additional four plants will help to understand potential added benefits.

Kelp
giant-kelp

Seaweed has long been used in traditional medicine. It is commonly used for the iodine content in hypothyroidism (low thyroid). It is a therapy for high blood pressure and for weight loss. It is also used to treat arthritis. A lower breast cancer rate is associated with kelp supplements.

Kelp is an excellent source of minerals including the more little known trace minerals essential to certain biologic reactions. The list includes iridium, germanium and rubidium in addition to the more common minerals.

Bioavailable calcium is available in kelp. Calcium obtained through kelp seems to be absorbed better than from some other sources.

This supplement is vitamin rich with many bionutrients. Vitamins include:

Vitamin A is a collection of compounds including retinol, retinoic acid, provitamin A carotenoids including beta-carotene. Eye (retina) health as well as many other biologic processes is affected.
Vitamin B's provided maintains the nervous system as well as the immune and cardiovascular systems.
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant savaging harmful free radicals from cellular debris.
Vitamin D is required for the absorption of calcium and phosphate in the gastrointestinal tract.
Vitamin E tocopherol is an integral component of many biologic reactions. It is required to maintain nerve integrity, inhibits platelet stickiness, protects the lipid balance and is a potent antioxidant.
Vitamin K is a required compound for blood clotting as well as a variety of connective tissue requirements. It is in the metabolic pathway for bone and other structural proteins.
It also contains high amounts of folic acid (Vitamin B9). Folic acid is an essential component of several biologic reactions required to sustain life.

Essential fiber content is significant and there is a lot of protein provided as well.

Blessed thistle (Cnicus benedictus)
blessed-thistle

The major common use of this plant is as a galactogogue to promote breast milk. Additional effects noted are to increase urinary frequency, treat loss of appetite or indigestion, cold symptoms including cough and diarrhea. It works well on the skin for acne and other inflammatory skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis and superficial bacterial infections like boils. It has also been used to treat headaches.

This plant has a bitters like quality that stimulates bile. This property increases appetite, assists digestion and keep the gall bladder functioning strongly. It is thought that the increased bile production and excretion acts to clear liver toxins and promote liver health.

Red Clover (Trifolium pretense)
red-clover-in-field

Red clover has been found to provide a wide range of health benefits. Some of the conditions it is used for in traditional medicine include:

Bronchitis
Asthma
Sedation (anxiety)
Irregular menses
Quitting smoking
Cancer

Red clover contains a lot of phytosterols and phytoestrogens as well as other phytonutrients with other effects. The phytoestrogens have been used as a treatment for menopausal syndromes. The estrogen like compounds ingested from the plant act like natural hormone replacement therapy (HRT). In one study the phytoestrogen in red clover supplements decreased hot flashes by a "modest" amount.

Other reproductive uses of red clover are to restore irregular menstrual periods and to adjust the vaginal pH to encourage conception. The phytoestrogens are particularly strong in this plant. It should be no surprise red clover is a dietary staple of most rabbits.

Another study done on red clover looked at depression scores on post-menopausal women. Red clover supplementation significantly raised mood scores on repeated testing. Certainly the central nervous system effects may be beneficial to the over treatment value.

Watercress (Nasturtium officinale)
watercress

This semiaquatic plant contains high levels of vitamins and minerals. In addition it provides a wide range of beneficial phytonutrients. Watercress has been used for:

Stimulant
Antioxidant
Diuretic
Expectorant
Digestive aid
Anti-cancer (specifically lung and breast)

One action identified from watercress is that it inhibits angiogenesis (blood vessel formation) to cancer cells. This deprives them of critical growth and maintenance energy causing cellular death. Ancient texts recommend using watercress and vinegar as a treatment for bleeding.

In history watercress can be traced back to the ancient Greeks, Persians and Romans. Watercress was recommended to children to encourage strong growth. It was also provided to the armies of Greece and Persia for strength fortifying qualities. As early as 400 BC Hippocrates grew watercress to use in the treatment of blood disorders.
More Ingredients = More Risk?

While there may be some additional enhancing phytonutrients in the eight ingredients blend, one truth is that there are four more items to which to be potentially allergic. Each additional plant adds a new plant family that may stimulate an allergic reaction in some people. In addition to allergies, the chance for side effects is concurrently increased with larger numbers of ingredients. Diabetics may need even closer blood sugar monitoring with additional phytochemicals working. The new phytosterols in the mixture may affect glucose levels.

Now an absolute warning to anyone pregnant or planning to become pregnant should not use the 8 herb mixture especially. The effects of red clover on the female reproductive system may jeopardize conception and pregnancy viability.

Watercress interferes with the cytochrome P450 drug metabolism enzyme system and may interfere with certain prescription drug use. If taking prescribed medications always check with a health care professional before starting any supplements.

Pros

Adds some additional health benefits.
Improved flavor. (according to some)

Cons

Increased risk allergies.
Increased risk side effects.
Additional items add to difficulty making tea yourself.

In the end only an individual can determine if the additional risks in the eight item formula balance the potential additional benefits. A prevailing attitude in modern society is that more is better. If one works, two will work better. In the case of the four ingredient versus the eight plant mixture the increased risks may outweigh any additional benefits.

Does Essiac Tonic (extract) Work as Well as the Tea?
http://essiacfacts.com/#does-essiac-tonic-work-as-well-as-the-tea

Essiac tonic is a concentrated extraction of the herbs used to make essiac tea. Some people prefer the tonic over the tea because of certain advantages it has. Because the herbs are highly concentrated, a much lower dose is needed. You only need a few drops of tonic compared to an ounce or more of tea. This also makes it more portable and easier to use while traveling. Essiac tonic also has a much longer shelf life than the tea. The tea lasts about 2 weeks in the refrigerator before it spoils. Tonics and extracts can last for over a year without refrigeration and with little potency loss.

There are however, some major disadvantages to using essiac tonic. Extracts are used a lot less commonly compared to the more popular tea form. There are some positive reviews and testimonials but there just isn't a lot of information or history like there is with essiac tea. The formula used by Rene Caisse to treat thousands was a decoction not an alcohol extraction, so it's hard to tell how it compares in effectiveness with the tea form. For this reason we don't recommend using essiac tonic unless you are traveling or just can't make the tea for whatever reason. Another major disadvantage of essiac tonic is that it mostly absorbs in the mouth and doesn't travel through the digestive tract in the same way the tea does. This is where the slippery elm bark really works it's magic for ulcers and digestion problems. Another common complaint is about the taste of essiac. If you have tried the tea and found it less than tasty, imagine that concentrated 10x!
Pros and Cons of Essiac Tonic
Advantages

Lower dosage needed
Portable
Does not need refrigeration
Long shelf life

Disadvantages

May not be as effective as tea
Many digestive benefits of essiac are not gained with tonic
Bitter unpleasant taste

Do You Remember Billy Best?
http://essiacfacts.com/billy-best/

Flash back to October, 1994. A teenage cancer patient made national headlines when he ran away from home to escape chemotherapy. Billy Best was 16 at the time and living with his family in Norwell, MA. After being diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma, Best endured a few rounds of traditional chemotherapy, but the harsh treatments made him so sick and so weak, he made his own decision to discontinue treatment. He decided he would rather live his life -- however short it might be -- on his own terms. He packed his bag and ran away, not yet knowing how that single act would put him on a path of discovery to find an alternative way of healing.

Now 35 and a father himself, Best has partnered with Linda Conti of Sandcastle Memoirs to write and publish his new book, "The Billy Best Story: Beating Cancer with Alternative Medicine." It has been almost nineteen years, and Best has remained cancer-free. He continues to advocate for the rights of individuals to choose alternative treatments.

On that fateful day so long ago, without so much as a word of farewell to any of his friends, Best gathered up his few belongings, his skateboard, and a sum of a few hundred dollars and hopped on a Greyhound bus. Final destination: California.

He never made it that far. After several days of traveling alone from city to city, Best reached the state of Texas and settled in with some fellow skateboarders in Houston who befriended him and gave him a place to stay. Meanwhile back in Norwell, Best's family was frantic and fearful for his safety and his deteriorating health. After several desperate days, they contacted the news media in a last-ditch attempt to locate their ill son.

The story of the runaway teen traveled like wildfire, appearing in newspaper headlines and on network news programs across the country. Police in numerous states implored the public to watch for a "bald teenager on a Greyhound bus." Reporters camped outside the family home as Best's parents waited by the phone, praying their son would call.

Thanks to the vast media attention, an outpouring of support from the public started to reach the Best family in the form of letters and phone calls. It seemed everyone had advice for young Billy Best. It was the promise of alternative medicine that finally convinced him to return home and seek out the therapies he could live with. In the decade that followed, as his recovery continued to defy the norm, Best made numerous appearances on television talk shows and at natural health conferences around the U.S.

An integral part of Best's cancer treatment was his commitment to making significant changes to his diet -- changes that are outlined in his book -- including the use of Essiac Tea. Over the last eighteen years since he was diagnosed, Best has been heartened to see a gradual but growing awareness about how what we eat and what we put into our bodies can make a significant difference when fighting disease or just in keeping a well body strong. "It's great to see the local food movement now, and to see people taking a more critical look at the foods they buy and eat," he said.

Essiac Tea: 4 Secret Ingredients Treated Thousands of Cancer Patients
http://naturalsociety.com/essiac-tea-4-secret-ingredients-cured-thousands-cancer-patients/

Since the 1920's, a renegade nurse treated thousands of cancer patients in Canada with a little known tea made up of just four simple ingredients. By combining Burdock Root, Turkey Rhubarb (used in Chinese medicine to cleanse the colon), Sheep Sorrel (the whole plant including the root) and Slippery Elm (not yellow dock or curly dock as some companies now substitute the herbs in the formulas) Rene Caisse passed on a medicinal wonder which was said to have been passed to her from the Canadian Ojibwa Indians.

Caisse worked with cancer patients for decades, even enduring jail time due to her actions threatening Canadian drug companies. She was proving to be very successful in 'treating' cancer with her special tea. The drug companies charged people through the nose for their cancer treatments, but Nurse Caisse charged absolutely nothing.

Her treatments were, in fact, so successful that in 1938 when she was being punished for helping so many people, more than 55,000 supporters signed a petition to support her ongoing efforts. A bill was also presented in Ontario, which would have allowed Caisse to continue to practice 'treating' people, but it lost by only three signatures.

Her name spelled backwards is the name for this cancer-curing wonder, Essiac Tea. Her funeral was in 1978, and though she was once targeted for 'practicing medicine without a license', hundreds of cancer patients showed up at her funeral to show respects to the 90 year old woman who saved their lives.

Since Caisse's time, the Chinese government has now tested Essiac tea extensively and now lists it as a cancer 'medicine.' The news of this herbal tonic has been quashed like many other natural remedies, by Big Pharma and drug companies who make huge profits off of people suffering from cancer.

Later, the Essiac tea recipe was expanded to include Blessed Thistle, Kelp, Red Clover and Watercress to make it even more potent.

Sheep sorrel, like so many other cancer-fighting plants, is also usually considered an unwanted weed. Caisse knew this was one of the most important ingredients from her advice given by her elderly Indian friend, and she even wrote a letter to Dr. Chester Stock of the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Institute, the world's oldest and largest private anti-cancer establishment, trying to convince him of its efficacy.

Following is a recipe for the original formula, (http://essiacfacts.com/preparing-the-essiac-tea-recipe/) You can also reference books written on the topic or see your own naturopathic doctor to confirm if it is right for you or someone you love:

6 cups of burdock root (cut)

1 pound of sheep sorrel herb powdered

1/4 pound of slippery elm bark powdered

1 ounce of Turkish rhubarb root powdered

Mix these ingredients thoroughly and sore in glass jar in dark dry cupboard.

Take a measuring cup, use 1 ounce of herb mixture to 32 ounces of water depending on the amount you want to make.

I use 1 cup of mixture to 8 x 32 = 256 ounces of water. Boil hard for 10 minutes (covered) then turn off heat but leave sitting on warm plate over night (covered).

In the morning heat steaming hot and let settle a few minutes, then strain through fine strainer into hot sterilized bottles and sit to cool. Store in dark cool cupboard. Must be refrigerated when opened. When near the last when its thick pour in a large jar and sit in frig overnight then pour off all you [can] without sediment.

This recipe must be followed exactly as written.

Use a granite preserving kettle (10 -- 12 qts), 8 ounce measuring cup, and a small funnel to fill bottles.

U.S. Man Who Survived Without Chemo: 'I'd Still Fight'

Man Who Survived Without Chemo: 'I'd Still Fight'
Man Who Ran to Avoid Chemo in 1994, Says He'd Help Mom and Teen Now on the Lam
By LAUREN COX, EMILY FRIEDMAN and JASON RYAN
May 23, 2009 -

Billy Best ran away from home in Norwell, Mass., in 1994 to avoid chemotherapy, and today he offered conflicting words of support and opposition to Daniel and Colleen Hauser. The mother and son, who are from Minnesota, are now part of an international police search after they fled a judge's court-ordered chemotherapy Monday for Daniel.

Jason Seidl, chief deputy at the Brown County Sheriff's office in Minnesota, affirmed Saturday that the pair last were spotted near the Tijuana-California border. However Seidle said it's unknown whether they actually crossed the border into Mexico.

"They're avoiding a court order, which is against the law, so they shouldn't do that," Best told ABC's "Good Morning America." "But it's also a mother who's looking out for her family. You know, somewhere in between there's an answer."

Best eventually returned home where authorities allowed him to pursue his choice of alternative treatments.

"I ran away because I believe the chemo was poisoning me and it would kill me before it cured me," said Best.

In the past Best claimed that roots, Indian rhubarb and slippery elm helped him stay cancer-free, but told "GMA" on Saturday he "used something called 714-X."

"That's not an issue here," said Best, who instead critiqued the widely circulated statistic that Daniel Hauser's cancer would have 90 percent cure rate with chemotherapy.

When asked whether he would help the family if they contacted him, Best said he would.

"I would because it's something that's so close to me," he said. "It's been, almost, 15 years and to see today someone fighting for those same -- freedoms. I thought we were past that."

"I'd fight. I'd fight for that freedom," he said.

Best was 16 when he fled to Houston to escape treatment for Hodgkin's disease, according to The Associated Press. He returned home only after his parents promised that they would not force him to have the treatments.

Late Wednesday, the AP reported that Best denied he was with Hauser and her son, saying that he had not spoken to them since they fled.

As of Saturday the Hausers are still on the run instead of fighting the Minnesota courts.

Search For Cancer-Ridden Teen Goes International

The U.S. Attorney's office and the FBI filed federal criminal charges Friday against Colleen Janet Hauser for fleeing with her son Daniel to avoid giving him chemotherapy for his cancer.

The federal criminal complaint notes that Hauser and her son flew on Sun Country Airlines from Minnesota to Los Angeles May 19, 2009, and their current whereabouts are unknown. The felony charge is fleeing from the state of Minnesota to avoid prosecution for deprivation of parental rights.

The case has now become an international manhunt with Interpol being notified and U.S. Marshals being deployed to Mexico from the San Diego Field Office and the U.S. Embassy in Mexico. According to one source, the marshals and Mexican law enforcement officers were in Tijuana looking for Hauser and her son.

"I can confirm U.S. Marshals are assisting Minnesota authorities," U.S. Marshals spokesman Jeffrey Carter told ABC News. "We have deputy marshals in Mexico now and are working with Mexican authorities to follow up on several leads."

Earlier, the father of the Minnesota teenager made a desparate plea for his son to return with his mother for court-ordered cancer chemotherapy treatment .

Authorities said they believe Hauser and her 13-year-old son, Daniel, may be in Mexico -- or trying to get there -- to seek alternative treatments for the teen who suffers from Hodgkin's lymphoma.

"We're looking for a hopeful resolution, it's all about Daniel," said Jason Seidl, chief deputy at the Brown County Sheriff's office.

Seidl declined to comment on whether Colleen and Daniel had been spotted and again urged anyone who thinks they may have information that could lead to their discovery to immediately contact the police.

Late Thursday afternoon, Anthony Hauser made an emotional appeal to his wife to return home with their sick son.

"This is for you Colleen if you're out there," Hauser said from his farm in Sleepy Eye, Minn., to his missing wife. "Please bring Danny home so we can decide as a family what Danny's treatment should be.

"I know you're scared and I feel that you left out of fear, maybe without thinking it all the way through," said Hauser.

"Danny is my son and the rest of the family is worried sick about how he is," Hauser said. "Please call me and let's talk about how we can work this out."

Hauser repeated, "Please give me a call."

Brown County Sheriff Rich Hoffman also spoke at Thursday's press conference, pleading with Colleen to return to Minnesota.

"We're all working to the same end, to make sure Danny is back home and safe," said Hoffman. "I'm asking you to contact us to arrange your safe return."

"We will not take an enforcement action if you've shown a good faith effort to come back," said Hoffman.

"We are concerned other individuals are going to use this incident as a mean to forward their own agendas which might not be in Danny's best interest," he said.

Colleen and Daniel Hauser were last spotted in Southern California Tuesday morning, according to the Brown County Sheriff's office, who said it was "reliable information" that has led them to believe the duo is heading to Mexico to seek alternative cancer treatment.

Colleen Hauser and Daniel disappeared after a court rejected the boy's request to refuse chemotherapy treatment for his Hodgkin's lymphoma disease. Doctors believe Daniel will die without the treatment.

The Hausers have said that they would prefer a less rigid chemotherapy treatment combined with other alternative treatments.

The family is Roman Catholic and believes in the "do no harm" philosophy of the Nemenhah Band, a Missouri-based religious group that believes in natural healing methods.

The warrant for deprivation of parental rights will ensure extradition to Minnesota if she is apprehended, according to police.

Authorities said the fugitives do not own a car and don't believe they could have left Sleepy Eye without help. They say they are following "any and all leads" and have been receiving tips from across the country.

Hoffman said that authorities do not have a specific vehicle they are looking for.

Cancer-Stricken Son and Mom Flee

Colleen Hauser's husband, Anthony, said that he believes his wife saw X-rays of Daniel that made her scared and prompted her to flee, missing a court appearance Tuesday.

Hauser has been cooperating with police, but Hoffman declined to speculate on the "sincerity of the information."

Daniel's name has been added to the database of the national Missing and Exploited Children's Network, said Hoffman, who hopes the move will help spot the teen if he attempts to cross a border.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Biotech is Creating GMO Human Babies: What Could Possibly go Wrong?

To understand transhumanism, you have to understand the philosophical leanings of some of its earliest members.

Dangerous epigenetic changes. As we reported recently, epigenetics considers how outside influences (i.e., environmental factors) may affect the way genes are expressed. As noted above, studies show that techniques like mtRNA could cause unpredictable epigenetic changes in embryos, resulting in birth defects.
If You Care about Your Health, You Need to Know about the Emerging Science of Epigenetics
http://www.anh-usa.org/science-of-epigenetics/
It sheds important new light on diseases such as Alzheimer's, and on all your diet and lifestyle choices.

We are all born with the genes we inherit from our parents. But how our body expresses the genes we already have isn't fixed: it can change based on the activities we pursue, the foods we eat, even our emotional state! We are learning more and more about this from the emerging science of epigenetics.

We are even learning that, in some respects, what we are depends on what our grandparents ate or did. And just as the food our grandparents ate can affect us, so will the food we eat affect our grandchildren. This is called transgenerational epigenetic inheritance (TEI).

A December 2013 study conducted at the Emory School of Medicine illustrates how TEI works: mice were trained to avoid the scent of cherry blossoms (the smell was linked with an electric shock). The mice's offspring and "grandchildren"-with no prior exposure to the scent of cherry blossoms and no training from their parents to avoid it-exhibited a similar aversion to the smell. This and similar experiments mean that our anxiety, fears, and phobias may be shared with at least two generations.

A 2010 study showed that overfed male mouse pups that developed metabolic syndrome passed elements of the disease on to their offspring-even if the offspring weren't overfed.

Some of the studies showing how the behavior of one generation clearly affects the next generation's DNA chemistry are in human populations. For example, a mother's diet during pregnancy can increase her child's risk of obesity. Findings from a Swedish study spanning three generations suggested that diet can cause epigenetic changes affecting several generations' risk of heart disease or diabetes.

New research released last week reveals an epigenetic link to Alzheimer's. This heartbreaking disease may not simply be a factor of age or genetics-it may also be caused both by family history and by your own lifestyle.

Alarmingly, some scientists are beginning to believe that TEI may be responsible for rising rates of anxiety, obesity, diabetes, and other epidemics. For example, a University of Texas experiment hinted that increases in the rates of autism and bipolar disorder could be a result of epigenetic damage stemming from previous generations' exposure to new chemicals and fertilizers-and that these detrimental effects may be passed on "without any further exposure."

The message here should not be that our past has locked us into a tragic future. It should instead be to look more closely at the mistakes we are making right now and what they might mean for ourselves and future generations. For example, please see our related article on GMO and epigenetics. With respect to autism, we also need much more research on the overloaded infant vaccine schedule and use of toxic vaccine preservatives and adjuvants, research which governments working closely with vaccine manufacturers are blocking.

In thinking about changes we need to make right now, we should keep one thing in mind: negative epigenetic changes appear to be reversible.

Animal research by Duke University found that B12, folic acid, choline, and betaine supplementation during pregnancy lowered their offspring's susceptibility to obesity, diabetes, and cancer (are you listening, Dr. Offit?).

Despite media noise to the contrary, epigenetics research suggests that maintaining sufficient nutrient levels will significantly affect your current and future health, including the likelihood that you'll develop cancer as you age. For example, healthy levels of selenium and vitamin D can reduce the accumulation of epigenetic changes that can drive cancer. One study (http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2012/12/121206122232.htm) showed that patients with higher levels of vitamin D and selenium experience fewer epigenetic changes associated with cancer.

Our fitness and emotional well-being can also affect how our genes are expressed.

A Harvard School of Public Health study showed that a sedentary lifestyle can amplify the effects of genetic tendencies towards obesity, while a brisk one-hour daily walk reduced genetic influence towards obesity by half.

In addition to its many other health benefits, meditation can epigenetically influence thousands of genes. In fact, one study found that 2,209 genes were significantly different between long-term practitioners and healthy individuals who didn't meditate. Meditation can suppress genes responsible for inflammation, and therefore help you physically recover more quickly from stressful situations.

The deeper we delve into the newly hatched field of epigenetics, the more reasons we find to approach health naturally-through lifestyle changes, a wholesome diet free of GMOs and pesticides, the appropriate use of dietary supplements, and the avoidance of chemicals and contaminants. It also means it's more important than ever before to protect consumer access to the integrative practitioners who can help us lead healthier lives.

Help your genes "express themselves" in a healthful way. Future generations will thank you!

Coconut Oil for Heart Disease; Supplements for Hepatitis C
http://www.newsmaxhealth.com/Dr-Blaylock/coconut-heart-atherosclerosis-hepatitis/2014/03/25/id/561655/
I would caution that you should use only extra-virgin coconut oil, which is high in a healthy oil called MCT (medium chain triglyceride) as well as a number of healthy flavonoids (the extra-virgin part). The strongest link to heart disease and fats comes with the very oils most promoted by the medical profession and dieticians - omega-6 fats, such as corn, safflower, sunflower, peanut, soybean, and canola oils... (Excerpt: see full article at above link)
Q: Are there any natural foods or supplements that would help cope with hepatitis C?
- Rod M., Anaheim, Calif.
A: Yes, there are a number of natural treatments that have shown benefit. At the top of the list are R-alpha-lipoic acid, taurine, indole-3-carbinol, a multivitamin/mineral (such as from Extend Core), vitamin C (buffered), vitamin E (mixed tocopherol with high gamma E), N-acetyl-L-cysteine, astaxanthin, white tea, and beta-1,3/1,6 glucan, which is an immune stimulant that boosts cellular immunity.
Most of the liver damage caused by this virus is what is called bystander damage; that is, free radical damage. Reducing free-radical and lipid-peroxidation damage dramatically lowers the risk of subsequent liver cancer and preserves liver function. It is also important to avoid excitotoxic food additives, such as MSG, hydrolyzed proteins, soy proteins, autolyzed yeast, etc. Resveratrol, grape seed extract, and curcumin reduce liver damage and inhibit viral replication.

Stop the spread of cancer with chili peppers
http://www.naturalhealth365.com/food_news/0926_capsaicin_stop_cancer.html

Did you know the heat you feel after biting into a hot chili pepper is good for you? The compound capsaicin -- that causes this pungent heat -- is also found to kill cancer cells. In fact, in the last few years, the research on chili peppers has focused on many organs including, the pancreas, brain, prostate, colon and breast.

Do chili peppers harm healthy cells?

To date, there has been many studies on chili pepper's ability to fight off cancer cells in many cancer affected organs. Among them, the 2006 study on prostate cancer cells drew more interest from researchers. Experiments, on the compound capsacisin reveal that this compound specifically targeted the tumors and cancerous cells without affecting the healthy cells.

It was found that capsaicin was able to do this by interfering with protein synthesis of the cancer cells, degradation of the cell DNA and interfering with cell transcription mechanisms of cancerous cells. While capsaicin affected the mitochondrial pathway of the cancer cells, there was no interference in the activity of healthy cells. This was observed in cancer-induced albino rats in lab studies.

A 2006 study published in Cancer Research revealed that capsaicin was effective in inhibiting prostate cancer cells. The study found that capsaicin promoted automated cell death in primary types of prostate cancer cell lines -- as well as in cancer cells caused by hormones.

Furthermore, capsaicin decreased the expression of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) and inhibited the ability of the dihydrotestosterone to activate PSA. When lab animals received four weeks of treatment with capsaicin, it was observed that prostate cancer growth and size significantly decreased.
Chili peppers do more than just prevent cancer

Compounds in chili peppers have been associated with multiple benefits like positive immune health, weight loss, lower risk of diabetes, and heart-healthy effects. A randomized, cross-over study among 27 healthy subjects revealed that consuming freshly chopped chili prevented the oxidation (free radical damage) to the fat cells -- which was a crucial factor in decreasing heart problems.

Capsaicin is also anti-inflammatory in nature. It inhibits substance P, a neuropeptide associated with inflammation that results in pain, heart diseases and other conditions. Because of this property, it has been used in a variety of chemotherapy studies for pain relief and also in many treatments involving nerve fiber disorders, conditions like psoriasis, arthritis plus many more.

Researchers say, the hotter the pepper, the higher is its capsaicin content, good examples include habanero and scotch bonnet peppers followed by jalapeno.
Ways to use chili peppers in your next recipe

Chili peppers can give any bland recipe an interesting taste. So, the next time you saut vegetables in a stir fry try adding some chili peppers to accentuate its health benefits as well as spice up a bit. Other ways to super-charge your recipes include, adding minced chili peppers to plain yoghurt as a salad dressing; in salsa for extra hot taste; pureeing a small amount with tomatoes or olives to give a surprising twist to your recipes.

Just be very careful when you are handling fresh chili peppers, direct contact with skin, lips and eyes can cause a severe burning sensation. Be sure to use cooking gloves instead of bare hands when using them for cooking.

Consuming chili peppers, in moderation, is considered safe, however if you are allergic to peppers or night shade family, it is a good idea to keep away from this spice. Another important point to keep in mind is to buy organic hot peppers instead of conventionally grown ones. According to the Environmental Working Group's 2013 report, non-organic hot peppers are among the most toxic (pesticide sprayed) items on the market.

"They took 16 patients with advanced leukemia, who had failed chemotherapy or not responded at all to chemotherapy, so they classically have weeks to months to live. They took their own immune cells out... and inserted a homing mechanism to target the cancer cells," said Agus. "The cancer cells were growing on their own, unrelentingly, and these immune cells came in and they could target and kill them. They become assassins. So, making their own immune cells become assassins and it worked."

Major cancer hospital blocks cancer cure
http://www.naturalhealth365.com/cancer_treatments/0927_ralph_moss_laetrile.html

In 1971, America declared a war on cancer. With over $200 billion spent on cancer research -- why haven't we found a cure? More importantly, is the conventional cancer industry uninterested in finding that cure? The answer to both questions may shock you!

A cancer fraud exposed. Two-time Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling once said:

"Everyone should know that the "war on cancer" is largely a fraud, and that the National Cancer Institute and American Cancer Society are derelict in their duties to the people who support them."

If you still doubt there's massive fraud within the cancer industry -- I urge you to look into the laetrile research scandal involving Memorial Sloan-Kettering, one of the leading cancer centers in the world. The movie trailer to Second Opinion will surprise many people who blindly trust the conventional cancer industry.

Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, America's leading cancer research center at the time, was assigned the task of testing an unconventional therapy called "Laetrile" -- in an effort to curb the public's "false hope" in the alleged "quack" therapy.
Is Memorial Sloan-Kettering part of a massive cover-up?

Ralph W. Moss PhD, a young and eager science writer, was hired by Sloan-Kettering's public relations department, in 1974, to help brief the American public on the center's contribution to the 'war on cancer.'

One of his first assignments was to write a biography about Dr. Kanematsu Sugiura, one of the Center's oldest and leading research scientists as well as the original co-inventor of chemotherapy. While meeting with this iconic scientist, to pen a biography on his 60-year career at Sloan-Kettering, Moss discovered that Sugiura had been studying this "quack remedy" in laboratory mice, and with unexpectedly positive results.

Shocked and bewildered, Moss reported back to his superiors what he had discovered, only to be met with backlash and denial from Sloan-Kettering's leaders on what their own leading scientist had found.

The truth about laetrile exposed

Fueled by respect and admiration for Sugiura -- Ralph W. Moss attempted to publicize the truth about Sugiura's findings. And after all diplomatic approaches failed, Moss lived a double life, working as a loyal employee at Sloan-Kettering while also recruiting fellow employees to help anonymously leak this information to the American public -- through a newly formed underground organization they called, Second Opinion.

Frankly, I think every cancer patient (and their families) ought to be familiar with this story. To learn more about this scandal -- pick up a copy of Doctored Results by Ralph Moss, Ph.D. -- which details a major cancer cover-up.

"My Clearest Explanation Ever On Cancer"
by Kelley Eidem, author of the book, The Doctor (Dr. Revici) Who Cures Cancer
Kelley's website: http://thedoctorwhocurescancer.com/

"I wrote this about one o'clock last night and posted it on Facebook.

The feedback has been tremendous. Please share it far and wide.

Here is what I wrote that everyone is so thrilled about...

When we want to cure a cancer we should look at the lynch pins of what cancer needs to function. First, is an unbalanced pH, either too acidic or too alkaline. In either of those cases cancer is always a possibility along with other illnesses as well. (Yes, being too alkaline also promotes cancer and other diseases.)

The second lynch pin is fibrin. Cancer cells are covered with fibrin. There is about 15 times as much fibrin around then as compared to other cells.

So why is fibrin so important? Let me count the ways.

  • Fibrin's stickiness mucks up the ability of the immune system to reach the cancer cells.
  • Fibrin provides the support structure for the cancer cell's feeding tubes.

Fibrin protects the feeding tubes with its stickiness.

So what happens if the fibrin is washed away?

  • The cancer cells are exposed.
  • The feeding tubes are exposed and without supporting structure.

As is taught in anatomy and physiology classes from day one: Structure determines function. The feeding tubes need the fibrin support to function properly, i.e., to feed the cancer cell. Since the cancer cell isn't being fed properly the cancer cells withers and dies.

So how do you get rid of fibrin? There are many things that will do that. Hot peppers, ginger and garlic are three of them. The hotter the pepper, the better. Modified citrus pectin, and proteolytic (systemic) enzymes are two more. Probably any volatile oil from spices will have a positive effect.

Because volatile oils are...well...volatile the most potent herbs and spices would be those that are freshly grated or 'bruised. So fir instance a fresh mint leaf that is freshly rubbed will release the oils. Within several minutes most of the active oil from any spice will dissipate.

Do those two things: balance the pH and melt away the fibrin, and the cancer has no leg to stand on. (Note that some of us get sick because we're too acidic, and others because we're alkaline).

It's not hard and cancer need not be scary. As you can see cancer is weak and vulnerable once you know the keys to success. You don't have to run here and there wondering will this work, will that work? All you need to know is whether the agent has the properties to melt fibrin.

To make it real simple, remember when you ate a hot spicy food like a pepper or horseradish or wasabi and it made your nose run. The runny nose is partly fibrin. From your own experience of that runny nose you can see how overpowering the volatile oils are and how utterly defeated the fibrin is compared to it.

The fibrin in cancer is no different. It's a weakling. You simply melt away the 'snot' and the cancer cell shrinks up and dies. So now you can see why cancer can be wiped out rather quickly if you use the right tools. There is no need for stupid things like surgery, chemo or radiation.

There is no need for a biopsy either. Who cares about satisfying the doctor's curiousity? If cancer is suspected, do the things that wipe it out, and then go on your merry way. You don't have to miss a school play, or any other activity you would have otherwise engaged in.

Remember, when people are first diagnosed with cancer, the usually just have some troublesome pain or a bump of some kind. It's seldom killer pain that brings them to the doctor. It's only after treatment starts that things go so badly and people are too sick to participate in their normal life. Well you can skip all that bad stuff. Wipe out the 'snot" and you're 90% there.

The best to you.

How I Got Rid Of My Stage 4 Cancer In Two Weeks For Less Than The Cost Of A Night At The Movies
by Kelley Eidem, author The Doctor Who Cures Cancer

Note: see "Adapted from Kelley Eidem, and improved" and "Cancer Cure - Doc Shillington's Total Tonic Recipe" on this page (search for them without the quotes) for updated information.

Can stage 4 cancer really be easy to cure?
I'm the author of the book The Doctor Who Cures Cancer, but today I'd like to talk to you about my easy victory over my own Stage 4 cancer.

The truth is that I was only able to come up with a key part of this extremely simple cure from what I learned from writing the book. By the way, my vision is this: "Together we can help cure cancer - one person at a time!" That means you play key part in conquering cancer. You can do that by reporting your results here (on his website at the link below). By doing that, you'll encourage others...in other words you could be saving a cancer victim's life - maybe a new one every day!

If you feel that this article could help someone you love, please send it on. I'm just one guy. So I need your help getting this fantastic news to more victims of cancer. It's a good idea to go ahead and send this to people who don't have cancer...because there is no telling when your relatives or buddies will need this lifesaving information...next year, five years, whenever. And please bear with me if at times it looks like the discussion has gone into areas that don't fit conventional wisdom. Going outside the box of what we think we know might be the best way at this point to get to a cure.

For several decades, modern medicine has tried a lot of toxic compounds, hoping to 'out-toxic' the cancer. And sure enough, the compounds did out-toxic cancer. Unfortunately, it usually out-toxics the patient as well. The result has been that cancer treatments are usually an expensive, painful and scary proposition. But you already knew that. I didn't go bald or get sick to my stomach!

Fortunately, my Stage 4 cancer was none of the above for me. My advanced cancer treatment cost less than two tickets and popcorn at the movies. My treatment wasn't painful. And I wasn't scared...I didn't lose a minute's sleep...because I knew what to do. If we've learned anything about treating cancer in the last 50 to 60 years it has to be this: half killing the patient isn't half way successful. As I emphatically told a woman in my store recently, "You gotta be healthy to get well!"

In my own case, I knew by the many lesions I had that I was already sick. I didn't need someone to help make me sicker. I needed to get healthy, so I could get well.

UCLA Researchers Confirm My Method!
Maybe the best place to start with this would be to let you know that researchers at UCLA garnered lots of headlines two years ago because they had done something pretty incredible.

(see link for rest of article)

Note: I would use the Ginger (make sure that it is raw and organic also) that he mentions WITH the other ingredients (not instead). Also, I recommend taking a full spectrum (all 8 tocopherols & tocotrienols) vitamin E oil-based (not dry powder) capsule each day so that the oil doesn't go rancid in your body, along with Activite Sport multivitamins, Country Life oil-based Vitamin D3, Source Naturals pomegranate/ellagitannin extract, large doses of enzymes between meals, EGCG, MCP, Arabinogalactan, Concentrated Flaxseed Hulls or freshly ground raw, organic flaxseed, and specific, raw blenderized vegetables (see my raw food and cancer page about the vegetables, and elsewhere on this page for sources and amounts of the supplements I mentioned) to increase your chances of success. Also see section on how to do "Imagery/Visualization: HowTo" (without the quotes) on elsewhere on this page. (I am not affiliated with the author,nor do I receive finanacial compensation for referring folks; however, I did use a lot of hot peppers, ginger and garlic, (along with Metabolic Typing, specific supplements, avoiding toxins, healthy lifestyle and imagery) to beat the same genetically-caused (I didn't smoke) lung cancer that killed 3 other family members (they unfortunately, used chemo and radiation for it), and think that his method has merit, so I am including it here for you:

If you have Stage 4 Cancer , you might also (in addition to doing other things) consider Cesium (this is not the radioactive isotope, but the non-radioactive salt of cesium -- cesium chloride); ask Dr. Wolfe at the Wolfe Clinic if he would recommend it for your type and stage of cancer. More information about Cesium is at:

I don't know if going to St. Kitts to see Dr. Rick Santee at his Wellness Center in the Caribbean is an option (it costs $18,000), but he administers and monitors ozone and cesium therapy, as well as raw foods, etc. If you want to do the cesium treatment yourself (although it's much more effective if combined with ozone therapy), the links on this page tell you how describe yourself and watching that potassium levels don't go dangerously low.

Some people would rather have a supervised program, rather than trying to follow a protocol on their own. Dr. Rick Santee has opened a new Wellness Center in the Caribbean. Cancer and other conditions are addressed using IV Ozone, Direct Injection Ozone, Cesium/High PH, Enzymes, Detox, Raw Diet, Immune boosters and other non-toxic compounds. NO chemotherapy or radiation is used. He's not doing phone consults at this time. The program is inpatient, full supervision. The biggest problem in treatment is people not complying. This factor will be mitigated under the fully supervised program. [As a side note, this is the same problem I've experienced countless times with people being unable to fully commit to a protocol and do all the aspects of it (dietary, lifestyle and spiritual changes) faithfully using the information from this website -- the protocol is a very good one, but too many people want an easy way out and are unwilling to consistently follow it, along with minor adjustments to their protocol as the need becomes apparent].

Rick was in practice for ten years in Los Angeles and his success rate for prostate, uterine and pancreas cancers was excellent. Other people did well if they complied. For people in reasonable shape upon intake, he is expecting 85% recovery from prostate cancer, pancreas cancer 75% with continued home program, other cancers above 70% with continued program.

If it were I and chemotherapy looked like it would CURE me, not just cause some temporary tumor shrinkage along with destroying my immune system in the process so that the cancer would come back with a vengeance, I'd take IPT (insulin potentiation therapy -- explained elsewhere on this page). Be sure to see my Cancer Radiation and Chemo herbs/supplements that are extremely necessary to reduce collateral damage if you do take chemo or radiation! (See "More Evidence that Chemo Makes Cancer Worse" and "HSI e-Alert - Reckless use of chemo is robbing cancer patients" above).

The main problem with people trying natural protocols and failing, as many people who have "tried" one or two supplements for a serious disease like cancer is that these people have, in my experience, all died because they would not follow a comprehensive protocol, take the proper supplements and amounts, change to a very good diet and lifestyle, address the spiritual aspects of good health, and totally commit to doing whatever it takes to defeat their illness. Note: everyone has a different opinion as to what "good" means; it's necessary to make time to READ, study and learn what it means, especially since your life depends upon it.

It's very important to take the time to read and become educated as to how to help your body heal itself, and to maximize your health. Not everyone can be healed, but even those who eventually die have a better quality of life and live longer than they would have with aggressive chemo and radiation.

What is really frustrating to me is that even when I spend years researching things and put it all up on my website for free, no one takes the time to really study (or even read it thoroughly), and they then ask questions that are already on the website (i.e., they're too busy to learn how to not die and won't do the work necessary to maximize their health, including reading free information that took thousands of hours to compile and then is given to them for free. Most complain that blended vegetables don't taste good, or they don't like to take a lot of supplements (but they have no problem spending lots of money taking all kinds of trips to remote islands, drinking booze and eating bad food with the money that they claim would be "wasted" on supplements to fight their cancer with). Some actually ask if they were to take just one supplement (and not change their diet or lifestyle), if they can beat terminal, stage 4 cancer! When I tell them that they have to do some work to get better, they go back to the chemo and radiation doctors, and I hear soon afterwards that they're dead.

Some people are determined to die in order to somehow "get even" with someone else -- these people cannot be helped, no matter how good a protocol or doctor is; they give up the "will to live" and hasten their own death. Furthermore, no doctor wants to get into the middle of it and be blamed for it.

Also, if you believe someone or something has the power to kill you (as in voodoo), then you've empowered it to kill you and it may, unless you take the power to kill you away from it. The converse is also true. There is a book about 50 cancer survivors that illustrates this: each beat cancer in a different way; the only thing they had in common was the fierce belief that life was worth living and that they were going to beat cancer. Make sure that you WANT to live: there's a huge difference between merely being afraid of dying and embracing life, loving life and wanting to live. Also, don't give someone else the power to take away your will to live; if you're not happy with your life, CHANGE IT! You don't have to die to escape from it.

Bad habits, diet and lifestyle (and often a bad attitude/mindset and neglect of your spiritual self) lead to cancer by activating certain inherited genes that pre-dispose you to getting cancer. The good news is that 80% of these genes can be either activated or de-activated. What is necessary is to fully commit to doing what is necessary to get better and stay better. Once you beat cancer (for the rest of your life), in order to keep cancer from coming back, you're going to have to keep from falling back into your old habits, because that is how you ended up getting cancer in the first place.

Your belief system can severely limit your available options, many of which are viable ones. Sure, there are quacks out there, but not every non-chemo and non-radiation treatment is quackery; follow the money, and try to step back and see outside of the box. I definitely recommend reading "Questioning Chemotherapy" by Ralph Moss: cancer is actually a cry from your body for help because it cannot tolerate your toxic diet and/or lifestyle -- it is not a cry for you to flood it further with more toxins from chemo and radiation. The odds of beating it are MUCH greater when a person starts the protocol before they're dying. Chemo works in less than 2% of cancers -- and of those 2%, more than half of them get secondary cancers caused by the chemo. According to Dr. Blaylock, "It's important to remember that secondary cancers are not recurrences of a previous cancer but entirely new cancers caused by the treatment. Most often, the secondary cancer is much more resistant to treatment than was the original cancer. Biopsies (including needle biopsies) also spread cancer in more than half of the cases."

What makes it so difficult (and frustrating) to help anyone with natural medicine, although it works, is that most people will not totally adhere to a protocol (this is called "treatment failure due to lack of patient compliance with it"), and the situation is made even worse because virtually everyone wants an easy way out, so they go to conventional doctors, take drugs and chemo (which "is covered by insurance. Insurance won't pay for supplements..."). Then they wait until they are dying before they are willing to eat some blended vegetables, change their diet and lifestyle, and take ALL of the supplements in a protocol without missing them, and IN THE PROPER DOSAGES.

Many people don't seem to understand that the dosages and forms (e.g., oil-soluble vs water-soluble, liposomal, particle size, etc.) of therapeutic supplements are critical, and that you can't just take a few of the supplements along with chemo or radiation and increase your chances of success -- the supplements try to build your body and immune system up and the chemo and radiation try to tear it down. I still take 175 pills/capsules each day, drink/chew two 10 ounce glasses of raw, organic vegetable juice along with a perfect diet, avoid toxic brands of cosmetics, cleaners, air fresheners, deodorants, soaps, etc., and make time to study what I need to know in order to survive (i.e., take charge of my health), not just blindly follow what some doctor tells me to do (i.e., delegate responsibility to someone else) -- it all boils down to whether a person REALLY wants to live and is willing do what it takes, or not.

I just wish that people would take the time somehow to read the entire protocol and raw food pages thoroughly, along with Dr. Blaylock's book and newsletters, and Jerry Brunetti's protocol; I did, because my life was at stake. Very few people are motivated enough to live that they will take the time to study the information they need to get better and beat this thing!

Last week a lady died of colon cancer who was brainwashed by the media and medical establishment into thinking that chemo and radiation could help her form of cancer and that anything other than that was quackery. She came to me at the end (just like too many others have), finally able to see "outside the box (the television)" and asked what she could do, and I sent her a protocol that I would follow. Unfortunately, it was too late and she died a few days later. Why is it that virtually everyone waits until they are at death's doorstep before they are finally willing to do some real work on getting themselves better?

Some colleagues have told me that it's human nature to value something relative to its cost, and that people would value this information more and do more to help themselves if I were to charge them for it, but I want to help people who are hurting financially and not add to their burden of cancer.

One thing that might be confusing you is that therapeutic dosages of supplements (including vitamins) are a lot different from preventative dosages (RDA minimums -- the amounts below which certain deficiency diseases appear) and have different effects; that's why dosage is very important.

By the way, after trying chemotherapy unsuccessfully, most doctors then turn to radiation (which even they admit doesn't have a chance of healing you): unless it's just pinpoint to shrink a tumor which is pressing on a nerve and causing paralysis (or shutting off a blood vessel), would only further weaken your body, cause more DNA damage to normal cells, further compromise your immune system and waste more precious time.

Several patients have told me that they'd rather die than eat healthy -- so, they did. Also, once a patient recovers, eating and living healthy is a lifelong thing or the cancer almost always comes back, so it's necessary to make a commitment to do whatever is necessary to go on living, and not worry about the taste of blended vegetables, too many supplements, etc., or the person cannot be helped; that's why Nick Gonzalez, Rick and every other naturopathic doctor I know screen people and make sure they only select the ones who are fully committed to getting better.

As a friend, Webster at www.cancertutor.com says, you need to use several garden hoses and a fire hose to put out the fire of cancer. The fire hoses are cesium and ozone.

Besides alkalinizing the inside of cells and killing the cancer cells without harming normal cells, Cesium also gets rid of pain. Normal cells are supposed to be more alkaline -- cancer cells are too acidic and ferment sugar to make energy, as opposed to normal cells getting energy from their mitochondria. By the way, that's why white starch and sugar (and sweet fruit) feed cancer.

Ozone therapy is another fire hose, but you need to see a practitioner who has the equipment to do ozone insufflation, such as the clinic in St. Kitt's, if you can build yourself up enough to make the trip. It's a lot easier if you go there, as they will help make sure that you don't eat anything harmful, take all of your supplements on time without missing any, and give you the ozone and cesium therapy, along with immune boosters, enzymes, raw food diet, etc.

[Note: It is not a good strategy to attempt to battle cancer by simply popping pills; a comprehensive approach is much better, including learning what to eat (see my Metabolic Typing pages for quick self-tests to find out your Metabolic Type, what ratio of foods you need), how much (e.g., at least 35-40% of calories from healthy fats, most carbs from certain vegetables, etc.), lifestyle changes, supplements, etc. Please refer to the other cancer and health pages on this site for more detail on these other essential aspects of battling cancer. Keep in mind that whole wheat bread raises serum glucose (and therefore feeds cancer) just as much as white bread, since the wheat is ground and exposes the starch to be rapidly absorbed by the body, as opposed to whole grains in the form that nature provides them, such as brown rice, whole/steel-cut oats (and even these need to be very limited) or vegetables.

The Cold-Pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil (CPEVO) mixture (with curcumin, quercetin and hesperidin) not only quells inflammation but fights cancer and helps you gain weight without feeding cancer. You would have to stop drinking sugar and starch-containing energy drinks that feed the cancer and make you waste away further, though; see the articles below for an explanation about cachexia and how patients lose more weight the more calories you give them if they're carbs and sugars. EIF and melatonin are also important.]

Hydrazine sulfate helps with cachexia of late stage cancer (losing weight and wasting away), along with the cachexia supplements if you are not on the drugs that are mentioned in HS articles as being dangerous if combined. (See below for other supplemetns that help with cachexia).

http://www.alkalizeforhealth.net/cancerpain.htm#hydrazinesulphate
Hydrazine sulphate does not work for every cancer patient. One of the reasons hydrazine sulphate may not work is because its effect is blocked by consumption of alcohol, tranquilizers (pain killers), antidepressants or barbiturates, so if you are using any of these substances, don't bother using hydrazine sulphate. Also, there are many things that you are not supposed to eat when taking MAO inhibitors such as hydrazine sulphate, or they'll cause side effects, such as headaches.

http://www.accessmednet.com/prescription-drug-information/buy_oxycontin_prescription.html
Oxycodone must not be mixed with MAO (monoamine oxidase) inhibitors

http://www.cancertutor.com/Cancer/Hydrazine.html

http://www.hydrazinesulfate.org/
Dr. Gold: HS is an irreversible and potent MAO (monoamine oxidase) inhibitor, a class of
compounds that can have potentially deadly interactions with other drugs. For over three decades it has been known that central nervous system depressants-such as barbiturates, tranquilizers and alcohol-are incompatible with MAO inhibitors and use of the two together could result in extremely dangerous effects. On September 14, 1994 Dr. Michael Friedman, associate director of CTEP and in charge of NCI's HS studies, wrote to Dr. Vera A. Gorbunova inquiring whether "Russian oncologists restrict the coadministration of hydrazine with alcohol, antiemetics, tranquilizers and barbiturates." Within three weeks he received a reply from Russian oncologist Dr. M. B. Bychkof: "Hydrazine sulfate is a modulator of biologic reactions...it functions as an inhibitor of monoamine oxidase [MAO] and therefore cannot be used in combination with alcohol, tranquilizers and barbiturates."
http://www.hydrazinesulfate.org/part2.html

Also helpful for gaining weight during cachexia is a raw food diet consisting of 60% protein, 30% healthy fat and 10% (1-2 cups/day) raw, organic green drinks (barley grass and Lindberg Greens & Fruits Plus) or raw, organic vegetables (lightly blended at low speed in a variable speed Vitamix so as not to destroy the enzymes from the heat of the blades). I would eat lots of raw or soft- or hard-boiled (frying oxidizes the cholesterol in the egg) Christopher's brand organic free-range high omega-3 eggs, 660mg omega-3/egg (wash them before opening them), raw cream/butter, saturated fat, extra virgin coconut oil, Cold-Pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Swanson EFAs Super DHA 500 from Calamari (take with full spectrum vitamin E), organic free-range chicken/turkey and line-caught/wild-caught fish (Alaskan canned salmon is high in omega-3 and inexpensive) and take pancreatic enzymes (pancreatin, bromelain, papain) to replace the enzymes that are destroyed by cooking. The meat should be lightly-cooked at low heat in EV olive oil with some turmeric added to reduce oxidation (not browned). This diet should help you gain enough weight and strength to have the reserve to go through your treatment.

Some other things that help with cachexia, or wasting away/weight loss/weakness are full spectrum vitamin E, plant flavonoids, curcumin, quercetin, hesperiden, grapeseed extract, lactoferrin, Zyflamend, Boswellia, egg white protein powder (take extra biotin and sufficient selenium and Lugol's iodide, because egg white depletes them), and MCT (medium-chain triglycerides) oil (work your way up to 1TBS 3 times a day after a meal -- not on empty stomach) -- Blaylock p228.

After a few days on ozone IV and inhalation therapy along with cesium, immune-boosting therapy, and a raw, organic food diet, you'll start ridding yourself of tumors and temporarily feel worse (Herxheimer reaction/experience an aggravation of symptoms/undergo detoxification) and cough up/vomit or pass pieces of tumors out through your bowels -- then you'll start feeling (and getting) better. The treatment plan at St. Kitt's is 21 days, and they monitor your ozone, cesium and potassium (this is crucial) levels when undergoing this very powerful treatment.

It takes 3500 calories (above and beyond what you need to maintain your present weight) to gain a pound, if your metabolism is normal -- and cancer patients have a quicker metabolism than normal. Fat has 15 calories/gram, so it is the most calorie-dense food that you can eat -- more than protein or carbs -- and cancer cannot use it (or protein) for energy to grow and spread with. ANY carbs/sugars/artificial sweeteners feed the cancers, which have 3-4 times the number of insulin receptors as normal cells, so they steal the carbs away from normal cells and you lose more weight the more you eat (and the cancer spreads from the carbs).

In stage 4 cancer, there is a lot of energy spent on chewing that wastes even more calories -- in addition, stage 4 patients cannot absorb nutrients from chewed vegetables. Even a healthy person can only get at most 8 to 12% of the nutrients from vegetables if they chew them very well -- and most don't, but when you blend the vegetables, 90% is absorbed. What is necessary is to lightly blend the vegetables in a VitaMix variable speed blender (on low speed) with EV olive oil (1/2c) and pure water (1c) added. If you won't eat that, then make green drinks (organic barley grass and Lindberg Greens & Fruits Plus mixed in pure water, along with Arabinogalactan, PectaSol-C, and any other powders). You could blend virtually all of your food to make it easier for you to eat and to increase absorption; if you do, you need to blend it at low speed and for not too long (just until the pieces are about 1/16" and require only light chewing), as the heat from the blades will destroy the enzymes in the food.

Ginger (fresh peeled ginger or powdered/capsules) is good for sensitive stomachs, and is an anti-inflammatory.

Calcification spots in soft tissue are sometimes caused by inadequate vitamin D3 and vitamin K2 (sauerkraut or capsules). Tumors also calcify when cancer dies. Biopsies spread cancer in over half of the cases; if you have had a biopsy or surgery on a tumor, I would take the anti-metastasis supplements on my main cancer page to minimize spread: concentrated flax hull lignans and/or lactoferrin, modified citrus pectin, along with other supplements including Activite Sport multivitamin, green tea extract, SeMSC (a specific form of selenium -- other forms are toxic in these dosages) 400-800mcg/d, Lugol's potassium iodide solution 9 drops/d in a little pure water, pomegranate extract (www.iherb.com [SNS-02086, Source Naturals Pomegranate Extract, 500 mg, start with 2 three times a day and increase until you get to 6 three times a day until cancer is gone -- then drop back down to 2 three times a day maintenance dose)], and other important supplements, along with specific blenderized raw vegetables.

Fungus is not the only cause of cancer; certain bacteria, as well as DNA damage from chemicals, bad lifestyle (e.g., alcohol, smoking, excessive exercise, insufficient sleep, stress), radiation, errors in cell division that happen from time to time, etc. can also cause cancer. Many people are born with genetic predisposition to get certain diseases such as cancer: about 80% of these bad genes can be turned off by good diet/ lifestyle/ attitude/ spirituality (mental and spiritual health) are as important as physical health). Sugar and starches do feed cancer, though (and fungus).

Dr. William Coley noticed that if cancer patients got an erysipelas bacterial infection, the bacteria somehow activated the immune system not only to attack the bacteria, but also, in many cases, the cancer. I recently tried to help a 17 year old boy with brain cancer whose father insisted on only using Coley's Toxins (killed bacteria) and wouldn't give him other necessary supplements and blenderized vegetables, as well as avoiding sugar/starches, etc. and he died. All vaccinations today contain "adjuvants" such as aluminum or certain bad industrial oils that stimulate the immune system to attack anything and everything in the body for years afterwards, usually causing more disease (autoimmune diseases, such as lupus, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, arthritis, etc.) than it helps. Coley's Toxins don't contain these harmful adjuvants, but I don't think that they are powerful enough to beat cancer by themselves unless they are part of a comprehensive protocol.

Doing a little of a natural protocol while taking chemo and radiation (and especially, not taking any of the supplements that specifically reduce damage to the brain and body and increase the effectiveness of chemo/rad) is not much better than doing nothing at all.

If you want to do the cesium treatment yourself (although it's much more effective if combined with ozone therapy), the links below tell you how describe yourself and watching that potassium levels don't go too low.

Note that some of the treatments buy time while you work to refine your protocol and kill the cancer (http://www.cancertutor.com/Other02/CheckFast.html); also, they recommend cycling through stage four treatments, for example, ozone first, then cesium, followed by others, and maybe repeating. Besides killing cancer, cesium gets rid of the pain by neutralizing the lactic acid that cancer makes from fermenting sugar for energy. Pain killer prescriptions further damage your liver, so if it were I, I'd stop taking them as soon as I started cesium treatment, since that will get rid of the pain.

For the cachexia (weight loss and wasting away), see: http://www.cancertutor.com/Cancer/Hydrazine.html and http://www.cancertutor.com/Other02/AdvSpecial.html

Also, Dr. Blaylock's book (pp 149-150, 207, 227-230, 262) lists some things that should be used for cachexia in addition to the hydrazine sulfate: vitamin E (800iu/d Swanson Full Spectrum E, SWU209 and vitamin E succinate, best from Jarrow Multi Easy vitamin powder); plant flavonoids (Swanson Ultra Apigenin, SWU375 and Swanson Bioflavonoids, SW128, 2/d); curcumin (3/d in oil -- see Blaylock's email below); quercetin (3/d in oil -- see Blaylock's email below); hesperidin (1/4 tsp 2-3 times a day, mix them in Cold-Pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil with curcumin & quercetin); grape seed extract (3/d); lactoferrin; MCT oil (1TBS 3xday = 3TBS/d); NAC (600mg/d); sublingual glutathione (2/d under tongue until absorbed).

See the following links regarding cesium for late stage cancers:

http://www.newswithviews.com/Howenstine/james14.htm

http://www.cancertutor.com/Other02/CheckFast.html (I would read through all 8 chapters).

For the Cesium and Hydrazine Sulfate, call Larry at Essense of Life (800-760-4947 -- Leave your name and number. Please say them twice. He will return your call. Email: larry@essense-of-life.com, Web contact page: http://www.essense-of-life.com/moreinfo/questionforeol.htm). http://www.essense-of-life.com/moreinfo/minerals/cesium.htm Phone numbers for the glyconutrients and EIF (ellagic insurance formula from J D Dennison) are given below.

An explanation of some of the supplements:

EIF (Ellagic Insurance Formula contains some enzymes, ellagic acid/pomegranate extract, and selenium and are convenient to take);

Lactoferrin (dramatically inhibits even more aggressive cancers from metastasizing) and grapeseed extract (makes it harder for cancer to dissolve tissue) help slow the cancer's spread;

Glyconutrients, Epicor, IACC, echinacea, goldenseal, fucoidan, astragalus, thymulus (thymus booster), white/green/black tea extract, Melatonin, Epicor and vitamin D3 (in the proper dosages) boost the immune system;

Anti-inflammatories to help slow the cancer [molecularly-distilled DHA oil from Calamari (taken with full spectrum vitamin E to keep it from oxidizing in your stomach), Zyflamend, Boswellia (aka "Frankincense"), alpha lipoic acid], NAC, sublingual glutathione, melatonin is a powerful antioxidant that fights cancer; Eliminate omega-6 oils (vegetable, canola, sunflower, safflower, soybean, corn, etc.); they are converted to arachidonic acid by your body and are pro-inflammatories that accelerate cancer. (Note: you actually need a small amount of pure omega-6 oils which you will get on this protocol from your GLA and olive oil, which contains mostly health-promoting omega-9 mono-unsaturated fat).

The blended vegetables, perfect diet, organic barley grass, Miracle Reds, Lindberg Greens & Fruits Plus powder, chlorella, cilantro/coriander, parsley, along with the liver supplements, will help get rid of toxins in your body from the chemo and prescriptions.

Regarding the effectiveness of natural medicine, barley grass, etc., you might see: http://www.drday.com/tumor.htm about a woman doctor who cured herself of terminal cancer. Also see Dr. Blaylock's book and newsletters, and Jerry's Brunetti's protocol and interviews in order to round out your knowledge.

The liver supplements are to help the liver, which is important, but not enough alone to beat cancer. Liver problems are caused by alcohol, prescriptions (especially pain relievers, tranquilizers and anti-depressants), chemo and NSAIDS (Tylenol/acetaminophen, ibuprofen, etc.) -- not from herbs and vitamins. The liver herbs listed on my site actually heal and re-grow the liver: dandelion; milk thistle extract; NAC; TMG; non-GMO Lecithin; artichoke extract; Luteolin; Livotrit -- those are the ones I take (all of them). Sources are on my main cancer protocol page and are better quality and much cheaper than buying them in stores.

The enzymes (including 36/d Pancreatin -- described elsewhere on this webpage, lots of papaya (see webpage for amounts and sources), serrapeptase, nattozyme, and Bromelain), when taken in the proper dosages -- the amount is critical with many of these things -- will help the body to kill the cancer, along with the Ellagic Insurance Formula, and glyconutrients (aloe, etc.)

The things in Dr. Blaylock's email below (in the amounts he said) are also important and they're intended to be used with the other information he wrote in his book and newsletters (i.e., there are other things to do and take, in addition to what he mentioned in the email).
---

Please take the time to read ALL of the info below -- the diet (what to eat and what to avoid, and metabolic typing), lifestyle, imagery and spiritual aspects, eliminate omega-6 oils (vegetable, canola, sunflower, safflower, soybean, corn, etc.), take Swanson EFAs Super DHA 500 from Calamari, Cold-Pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil/curcumin/quercetin/hesperidin, liver supplements and EIF (or equivalent supplements) are the main things, and the anti-mets (anti-metastasis), anti-inflammatory, and immune-boosting supplements are all very important parts of it -- particularly if you have cancer in more than one place, or have had a biopsy or surgery on the tumor(s).

Ordering the supplements online costs half of what they do in stores, shipping is a fixed rate ($3-4, no matter what size the order is), and most online vendors don't charge tax. I suggest asking them to ship the items as quickly as possible (priority mail or express), and picking up enough generic equivalents at a nearby store to last you until they arrive -- it's well worth the few minutes it takes (with the links and phone numbers that I've given you to speed things up) for the money it saves and the convenience of having many things all in one. Remember to get the dosages correct -- it's very important.

Imagery/Visualization is easy to do and would also help (search for "imagery and visualization" without the quotes on www.distance-healer.com/24.html

Push the good fats and proteins (and try to eat and gain some weight and strength if you're losing weight). See below re CoQ10 for energy, as well as the other things mentioned.

The coconut oil (as well as Swanson EFAs Super DHA 500 from Calamari) are good sources of calories and taste good, too. Good things to eat are coconut oil, green drinks, canned salmon (with extra enzymes to reduce the enzyme load on your pancreas), and no carbs/starches/sugars/ice cream, etc. in order to gain weight and not feed the cancer. Eliminate omega-6 oils (vegetable, canola, sunflower, safflower, soybean, corn, etc.); they are converted to arachidonic acid by your body and are pro-inflammatories that accelerate cancer. (Note: you actually need a small amount of pure omega-6 oils which you will get on this protocol from your GLA and olive oil, which contains mostly health-promoting omega-9 mono-unsaturated fat).

EIF is extremely important in order to attack the cancer. It's more convenient than taking loads of ellagic acid, enzymes, white/green tea extract, Graviola and the right amount of selenium (although I give the amounts below, in case you choose to take them separately). EIF contains lots of ellagic acid/ellagitannins, along with some (you need additional) EGCG, graviola, enzymes, and selenium. EIF also causes cancer cells to undergo programmed cell death (read the details about how to use it below -- you need to increase the dosage with time) is only available from JD Dennison. Arabinogalactan, Pectasol-C, Concentrated Flax Hull Lignans and Lactoferrin STRONGLY reduce metastasis. ProBoost and Thymulus/Wellness Booster help the Thymus gland cells identify cancer cells for NK cells to attack. Grapeseed extract (3/d) strengthens intracellular "glue" so that cancer has a tough time dissolving it to spread.


My Shorter Cancer Protocol for all Cancers
(Note: My Main Cancer Protocol for all Cancers is further down this page)

These are some of the most important things that I would be taking for any type of cancer, unless otherwise specified (for example, larger amounts of Lutein are needed for lung cancers than for other cancers, so it's specified below). Sometimes I open the water-soluble capsules into my green drink, or take pills with my vegetable juice if it would otherwise take too much water to swallow them; oil-soluble supplements need to be mixed in CP EV olive oil so that they will be absorbed. (I mention on this page some that are oil-soluble; also, if it says on a supplement bottle to "take with food", this usually is a good indication that it is oil-soluble as opposed to "take with water".

You can customize this protocol by seeing my full Cancer Protocol further down on this page, and also Dr. Blaylock's book and adding any of the supplements that you feel are important to this list.

My website (www.distance-healer.com) tells what I did for cancer (see the main Cancer Protocol, Cancer and Raw Foods, and Chemo & Radiation Herbs pages).

I have put together this starter protocol of supplements to go along with the diet that you need to determine using the Metabolic Typing test, imagery, prayer, pure water and air (lifestyle changes). You will save a lot of money by ordering them online. These are ones I use myself, and for my family, that I think are good quality standardized extracts, are in the proper forms, and don't have many harmful excipients and binders in them, as well as dissolve quickly or are in capsule form. (See pp11-16 of Dr. Blaylock's book, and his 3-2014 newsletter re most vitamins are of harmful quality).

Also see my Skin Cancer page about using red light of a specific wavelength for skin, breast, cervical, oral, anal, etc. cancers that the light can either shine on or penetrate (perhaps even prostate cancer).

You'll need to look through Dr. Blaylock's book (and PDF newsletters, if you subscribe to them through Newsmax) for cancer and breast cancer supplements, as well as some that prevent angiogenesis and metastasis, and boost the immune system and add them to this basic protocol. (See http://www.russellblaylockmd.com/ and www.NewsMax.com/BlaylockReports and his books http://web.mac.com/rblaylock/iWeb/Russell%20Blaylock%20M.D./Books.html) Dr. Blaylock's book, "Natural Strategies for Cancer Patients" (http://www.amazon.com/Natural-Strategies-Patients-Russell-Blaylock/dp/0758202210/)

Page 12 The Blaylock Wellness Report September 2012
Q: My mother has lung cancer and an integrative doctor advised her to stop taking B vitamins. He also recommended fermented wheat germ, Spanish black radish, and black raspberry capsules. Will these substances help with lung cancer?
-- Andrea F., Setauket, N.Y.
A: In general, a person should avoid certain vitamins if they have cancer. For example, B12 and folate (folic acid) should be avoided as they increase cell reproduction. Folate should be used when folate-blocking drugs, such as 5-FU, are used, and studies show it improves the anticancer effectiveness.
I would strongly discourage taking fermented wheat germ as it is very high in glutamate, which powerfully stimulates the growth and invasion of lung cancers.
The most powerful anticancer natural products include curcumin, quercetin, luteolin, silymarin, ellagic acid and DHA.
A low protein, high vegetable diet (especially blenderized vegetables) that is also low in sugar, simple carbohydrates, and omega-6 oils combines the many anticancer effects of natural substances. Iron should be avoided at all cost.

(Adapted from Kelley Eidem, and improved: I took these ingredients, along with all of the other ingredients on this page when I had lung cancer (long before I knew of Kelley Eidem). The Koreans eat Kimchi (very spicy Korean Cabbage, containing these same 4 ingredients, and it protects them against flu, colds, respiratory illnesses and sinus infections). I make my own by adding a little olive oil to sauerkraut (the kind made from only cabbage, water and salt) and mixing in the 4 ingredients -- you can mix the 4 ingredients to any oil or fat and eat them that way.]

Here's a real brief recipe list here. Organic ingredients are best. [Note: I had the equivalent amount of this 3 times a day when I had active cancer]:

(1) Grate one habanero pepper each day, putting it on sprouted grain (Ezekiel) bread. Yes, you use the seeds from the peppers.
(2) Grate two cloves of garlic each day, putting them on bread and covering with butter.
(3) Freshly grated ginger...grated daily...not from a jar!
(4) Freshly grated Horseradish...grated daily...not from a jar!
(5) Smother the grated garlic and habaneros peppers with real butter and eat it. Organic goat butter is best, or you can mix it in organic cold pressed extra virgin olive olive or coconut oil (all of these ingredients are oil-soluble, so mixing them in an oil/fat helps your body absorb them better). No margarines of any type, including Smart Balance, etc.!

The potent active ingredients from the peppers, horseradish, ginger and the garlic disperse quickly. So they must be grated each day, and eaten immediately.

You're probably thinking, whoa that's gotta be hot!

Yes, it is. And it will make you breathe deeply! That's a good thing, because heavy breathing pumps the lymph system. As you know, cancer cells often gather there.

What I did was put the habaneros and the garlic on one side of the bread and folded it over. Plus, it's handy to have another half slice at the ready to cut the burning sensation in my mouth.

So let yourself breathe deeply for a minute or two and then eat the extra half slice of bread.

Let me say a word or two about the bread. I used Ezekiel organic spouted bread. You can get it in the freezer section of health food stores, Whole Foods, and at Publix.

Yes, it costs about $5.00. But keep in mind that all the ingredients together won't cost you more than $20, and Ezekiel is organic sprouted grain bread, so it is not GMO (which is carcinogenic) and the sprouts use up much of the white starch in the grain and make healthy nutrients from it.

Cancer Cure - Doc Shillington's Total Tonic Recipe
... (excerpt)
I get the aforementioned supplements into my system by taking, Shillington's Blood Detox, Para-Shield, black radish, coptis chinensis, and I also throw in Shillington's Total Tonic, but you can make it yourself easily. Here's the recipe:

Doc Shillington's Total Tonic Recipe (use raw, organic -- either fresh or equivalent in organic powder, and take up to 3-4 times a day for serious ailments):

 1 handful of garlic cloves
 1 handful of chopped onions
 1 handful of chopped ginger
 1 handful of chopped horseradish
 1/2 handful of chopped habanero peppers (or 3/4 to 1 handful of fresh cayenne, depending upon how strong it is, in order to get about the same amount of heat as the habeneros)
 1 tsp Mustard powder (or mustard in vinegar with no harmful ingredients or preservatives)
 6 capsules Pomegranate extract (open capsules)
 Raw apple cider vinegar

Throw in a blender and cover with an inch or two of organic raw apple cider vinegar. All ingredients should be organic, but don't let that stop you from making this great formula (as long as the garlic is not from China). You can use the mash right away or wait two weeks and allow it to turn into a tincture.

[Note: I would also take quercetin, curcumin, hesperidin, and milk thistle extracts (mixed in CP EV olive oil), enzymes, Vitamins D3, K2, Selenium (http://www.swansonvitamins.com/swanson-ultra-semsc-selenium-200-mcg-120-caps -- also see Revici's fat-soluble form of selenium; search this page for "Revici’s liposomal selenium" without the quotes), Lugol's Iodine (http://www.swansonvitamins.com/j-crow-company-lugols-iodine-2-2-fl-oz-liquid), and some of the other herbs/supplements mentioned on my main cancer protocol page, along with the specific, organic blenderized vegetables on my Raw Foods and Cancer page. Your will to live/ attitude and conviction that you want to, and will, beat it, is very important. See information about this, and how to use imagery/visualization to fight illness on my main Cancer Protocol page. (See my main cancer protocol page http://www.distance-healer.com/24.html and search for "Imagery/Visualization: HowTo" without the quotes). When fighting a large fire, I would use a few firehoses, and many garden hoses (as opposed to putting all of my eggs in one basket).]

Don't ALLOW yourself to be sick; being sick requires that you accept being sick. (See my main cancer protocol page http://www.distance-healer.com/24.html and search for "Imagery/Visualization: HowTo" without the quotes).

Vitamin D3 is important to fight infections.

TB, Calcium levels & Supplements, Vitamin D3, K2, Ebola and Infectious Disease Processes

If you are worried about this year’s influenza pandemic predicted by the CDC or are in fear for your family’s safety because of the Ebola virus then calculate in vitamin D supplementation as well as Vitamin C, K2, magnesium, iodine, selenium, bicarbonate and other important nutrients... (see full article for dosages and more info.)

Too much Vitamin D can cause dangerously high calcium levels. when supplementing a diet with D3 and K2 you should never take calcium supplements; just eat a normal healthy diet [don't take any extra supplemental calcium than is in a good multivitamin/mineral such as Activite Sport (that contains 200mg calcium, along with Mg, Zn, Mn, Bo, and other essential co-factors needed to put calcium in the bones and teeth -- not in the soft tissues, and get the rest of your calcium from a very healthy diet, including specific Vitamix blenderized raw, organic vegetables.]

http://drbenkim.com/vitamin-d-facts.htm

Vitamin D and TB
TB is also a major global problem: Nine million people a year develop the active disease worldwide, which kills two million each year. Scientists have shown that a single 2.5mg dose of vitamin D may be enough to boost the immune system to fight against tuberculosis (TB) and similar bacteria for at least 6 weeks. Their findings came from a study that identified an extraordinarily high incidence of vitamin D deficiency amongst those communities in London most at risk from the disease, which kills around two million people each year.

The research, funded by the Department of Environmental Health and Newham University Hospital. Dr Adrian Martineau from the Imperial College London, who co-ordinated the study said, “Our work adds to the growing evidence that vitamin D may have a wide range of important health benefits, including preventing falls and fractures and reducing risk of cancer and diabetes, as well as boosting the immune system against infection. Population-wide supplementation needs to be considered by public health planners."
Excerpts -- see full articles at links:
http://drsircus.com/medicine/vitamin-d-ebola-infectious-disease-processes
http://drbenkim.com/vitamin-d-facts.htm

Note: because my levels of vitamin D3 were low, I initially took 50,000 iu of vitamin D3, then 7,500 iu/day from then on (one 5,000 iu every day, and one every other day; average = 7500iu/d)

Vitamin C helps eliminate chronic disease

Jonathan Landsman September 18, 2013    Vitamin C Benefits 0 Comments
Pioneering physicians like Drs. Steve Hickey, Hillary Roberts, Frederick Klenner, Thomas Levy plus many others have dedicated their lives to helping humanity with nutritional therapies like vitamin C – one of the most valuable ‘forgotten’ remedies – which can help eliminate a wide range of chronic health issues. But, don’t expect to hear this information from your conventionally-trained physician ...

The marketing myth of ‘vitamin C complex’
http://www.naturalhealth365.com/vitamin_c/myths.html
Thomas E. Levy, MD, JD September 3, 2013    Vitamin C Benefits 2 Comments
In an effort to set the record straight – vitamin C is ascorbate only. Most commonly, vitamin C is ingested as ascorbic acid (hydrogen ascorbate) or sodium ascorbate. Vitamin C also occurs in different mineral forms, including calcium ascorbate, magnesium ascorbate, and others. However, it needs to be understood that the active agent in all forms of vitamin C ...

[Note: vitamin C is not absorbed well unless you also take bioflavonoids with it. Linus Pauling also used bioflavoids; this is why other researchers were not able to replicate his work. Search this page for "All C is worthless without the flavonoids." (without the quotes) for more info.  I think that Dr. Levy just wants to make the point that a lot of sellers use hype to overcharge you and make you think that their bioflavonoids are somehow special. Bioflavonoids are important; usual dosage is 70% as much bioflavonoids as vitamin C (http://www.swansonvitamins.com sells Full Spectrum Citrus Bioflavonoid Complex [https://www.swansonvitamins.com/swanson-premium-full-spectrum-citrus-bioflavonoid-complex-250-caps], and also individual ones including Rutin, Hesperidin, Naringin, etc.)]

Note to everyone reading the above articles:  Your body will NOT absorb ANY vitamin C in the absence of bioflavonoids!  What are bioflavonoids?  They are found in all citrus fruit in the membranes between the fruit.  The webbing between segments of the grapefruit.  Also found in rose hips, and rutin.  Vitamin C cannot be assimilated in the absence of bioflavonoids.......PERIOD!  Make sure that the kind of C you buy has them in it.  A "mixed bioflavonoids" is best.  Also, you can buy bioflavonoids separately and add them to your ascorbic acid (C), but why you'd want to do this extra step, I don't know.....

http://alternativemedicineutah.com/intravenous-ingredients/#Vitamin_C shows ingredients for a Vit C IV.  Doesn't look like bioflavs are listed.  Would that then make Vit C IV's useless?
IV Nutrient Ingredients
This is a partial list of conditions and their IV protocol.  Click on the condition for a list of ingredients.
    Vitamin C
        Ascorbic Acid (100 grams)
        Calcium
        Magnesium
        Potassium
        Pyridoxine (vitamin B6)
A: Yep.  Pretty much so.  I guess that's why you can buy bioflavonoids separately, to take at the same time as the C compound.
All C is worthless without the flavonoids.  That's why Linus Pauling's research ended up being validated, eventually.  I believe he used C in mega doses in his studies, but when others tried to duplicate his findings, they couldn't duplicate his findings, not realizing they were using straight ascorbic acid, devoid of flavonoids.  Most active adults need around two grams per day, for optimum health.  Remember, it's water soluble, and is lost as your body loses moisture due to temperature, humidity, and kidney function.  If you lose water, you lose both B and C vitas, as they are both water soluble...

Probiotics and raw sauerkraut will help regrow your healthy intestinal bacteria. You need to replace the healthy bacteria for a strong immune system to fight illness.

Vitamin C better than chemotherapy
http://www.naturalhealth365.com/vitamin_c/kills_cancer_cells.html
Thomas E. Levy, MD, JD August 19, 2013    Vitamin C Benefits 4 Comments
 Although vitamin C is “only” an antioxidant, its unique chemical structure, closely resembling glucose, allowing it to penetrate all of the water-soluble areas and tissues of the body, both inside cells and outside cells. It only really fails to concentrate in fatty areas, although it can still have an antioxidant impact there, as it will regenerate fat-soluble antioxidants, such as oxidized vitamin E, back to its normal electron-donating status.

Vitamin C makes all normal cells stronger

All non-malignant cells in the body require vitamin C to fuel their metabolic activity. In fact, vitamin C can very much be considered the fuel on which cells run. Even inside the cells, where the antioxidant glutathione plays a prominent role in cell function, vitamin C is needed to keep the glutathione in its active, electron-donating state.

Other antioxidants can help vitamin C perform its function, but when it is severely depleted, disease is always present.

Vitamin C kills cancer cells

The design of nature is incredibly elegant. While vitamin C improves the health of normal cells, it increases the oxidative stress inside malignant cells. This is because all cancer cells accumulate iron and hydrogen peroxide, and the vitamin C can generate highly reactive hydroxyl radicals via the Fenton reaction that can kill the cell when it is sufficiently activated.

Normal cells have only relatively little iron and next to no hydrogen peroxide, and vitamin C cannot increase oxidative stress in these cells. Actually, in normal cells the only effect of vitamin C is decreased oxidative stress. As an added point, when enough vitamin C is chronically present inside cells, they cannot accumulate iron and hydrogen peroxide, and they are unable to become malignant in the first place.

Chemotherapy kills all cells, but just kills cancer cells more effectively.

This is why chemotherapy has such horrible side effects, as it gets into normal cells as well as the cancer cells. All cancer cells already have a state of increased intracellular oxidative stress, so the additional pro-oxidant effects of highly toxic chemotherapeutic agents can push this elevated oxidative stress to the point of causing cell death.

Some normal cells are killed as well when enough chemo is given, but for the most part the chemo just elevates the intracellular oxidative stress of normal cells to point of disrupting their normal metabolism and making them sick.

If you are reluctant to treat your cancer with only vitamin C, definitely take it as well as your chemotherapy.

The way information is presented to the public makes it relatively rare to find someone who doesn’t want anything to do with chemo. Most want to “cover all bases” and take chemo along with whatever else they can find that they think will be good, including vitamin C.

This approach can work well for many people who simply don’t have the strength needed to defy the advice of their physicians. Many cancer patients are simply beaten down mentally and physically, and they simply do not have the capacity to do anything but put their faith in their docs, even if they strongly suspect how they get treated will not give them the best results.

Vitamin C will neutralize any toxic chemo drug if it encounters it directly in the blood, just as though it was snake venom or any other blood-borne toxin. However, when the C is given before the chemo, and additionally several hours after the chemo, it does nothing but help.

Vitamin C increases the oxidative stress further inside the cancer cells along with the chemo and increases cancer cell killing, while it helps repair the damage done by the chemo to the normal cells.

Generally speaking, the more vitamin C, the better

Many cases of cancer resolution from vitamin C are documented in the literature. Generally, the best effects will be obtained by infusions of 50 grams or more intravenously, along with oral liposome-encapsulated vitamin C, several grams a day. As discussed in other articles, many cancer patients will not improve, or hold their improvements, if they do not address dental infections, especially root canals, as part of their treatment protocol.

Good News: Blushwood Berries Kill Cancer in 75% of Cases, Big Pharma Tackles Patent
by Christina Sarich
October 18th, 2014
http://naturalsociety.com/blushwood-berries-kill-cancer-75-cases-big-pharma-patent/

Many of the pharmaceutical industry's attempts to co-opt mother nature end up failing. When you see how many cancer-killing compounds are either suppressed or that are used to try to make billions on a new "drug," it gets head-spinning. You can add a new gift from Mother Nature to the cancer-fighting arsenal, but you should learn about it quick before its hushed up and companies like GlaxoSmithKline or Pfizer try to patent it.

The fruit from the Blushwood tree, which has very specific growing requirements and, thus far, has only been found to thrive in Far North Queensland in the middle of the Australian Rainforest, kills cancerous cells in three different ways - fast:

. . . it kills the tumour cells directly, it cuts off the blood supply and it also activates the body's own immune system to clean up the mess that's left behind."

These results (http://www.abc.net.au/news/2014-10-07/queensland-scientists-discover-cancer-fighting-berry/5796106)  were discovered in an eight-year study led by Dr. Glen Boyle, (http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2014/10/08/major-cancer-discovery-found-in-the-middle-of-the-australian-rain-forest/) from the QIMR Berghofer medical research institute in Brisbane. In 75% of cases, the cancer never returns. There were no side effects, and the compounds started working in five minutes, making cancerous melanoma and neck tumors disappear in a matter of days.

These results prove yet another reason to protect the lush jungles that are dwindling due to deforestation, (http://www.rain-tree.com/facts.htm#.VDwzrefIcY4) but also to restrict the ability of biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies from patenting anything that occurs in nature.

Dr. Boyle said that:

"There's a compound in the seed -- it's a very, very complicated process to purify this compound and why it's there in the first place, we don"t know."
.There were no side effects, but what amazed scientists most was how fast the fruit compounds worked; the drug took effect within five minutes and tumors disappeared within days.

Read: Sea Cucumber Found to Kill 95% of Cancer Cells, Shrink Tumors
http://naturalsociety.com/sea-cucumber-shrinks-cancer-cells-95-percent/

Dr. Boyle added:

"The surprising thing for us and the thing that we don"t see very often is the speed with which this occurs. Usually when you treat a tumor it takes several weeks for it to resolve, but this is very, very rapid. There's a purpling of the area, of the tumor itself, and you see that within five minutes and you come back the next day and the tumor's black and you come back a few days later and the tumor's fallen off."
.The tree is apparently very picky about where it grows. Currently, it is only seen on the Atherton Tablelands. Scientists are trying to expand that to different places to see if it would grow on a farm.

Dr. Boyle was hopeful for the fruit compound to be used for tumors that can be accessed by direct injection, but said that it would not be effective against metastatic cancers, and therefore could only add to chemo and radiation treatments rather then replace them. While Dr. Boyle's research into the Blushwood Tree fruit is extremely helpful, it seems he isn"t fully aware of the many other natural ways and foods which fight cancer and could replace chemo and radiation.
http://naturalsociety.com/6-super-foods-that-fight-cancer-prevent/

As usual, the findings of scientists observing Mother Nature are used to serve biotech companies and pharmaceutical companies. Instead of running expensive drug trials, why are the fruits simply not grown around the world to be available to the masses for real cancer treating? You know why.

In the book Medical Mafia, How to Get Out of It Alive and Take Back Our Health, author Guylaine Lanctot explains the underbelly of the medical system. In short -- it's profit over people.

So, as usual, corporations like Kellogg's (http://action.sumofus.org/a/kellogg-palm-oil/3/2/) are happy to wipe out millions of hectares of rainforest, eliminating gems like the Blushwood tree in the process, and then Big Pharma companies along with Biotech swoop in to make their bucks off of whatever latest ecological treasure they can research and patent. Without respect for this planet, those treasures will all soon disappear.

75% of physicians in the world refuse chemotherapy for themselves
by S. D. Wells
http://www.naturalnews.com/z036054_chemotherapy_physicians_toxicity.html

Doctors used to think that if they drained a sick person's blood it would purge the "evil" infection or disease right out of the body, but all that did was make the ill person much weaker, unable to fight off whatever was invading their body, and the patient was then highly likely to lose the battle for life, and in less time.

This is all documented in a groundbreaking downloadable PDF report published by NaturalNews.

Research using polls and questionnaires continue to show that 3 of every 4 doctors and scientists would refuse chemotherapy for themselves due to its devastating effects on the entire body and the immune system, and because of its extremely low success rate. On top of that, only 2 to 4% of all cancers even respond to chemotherapy or prove to be "life extending," yet it is prescribed across the board for just about every kind of cancer.

Polls were taken by accomplished scientists at the McGill Cancer Center from 118 doctors who are all experts on cancer. They asked the doctors to imagine they had cancer and to choose from six different "experimental" therapies. These doctors not only denied chemo choices, but they said they wouldn't allow their family members to go through the process either! What does that say about their true opinion of this archaic method?

These surveys are having a profound effect on the general public opinion of chemo treatments in most of Western society, especially the United States, which uses more than any nation in the world. This lack of trust by doctors is spilling over to patients, and the move towards natural remedies is increasing, much the way it did in the early 1900's, before the dawn of corrupt medicine, pharmaceuticals, and radiation.

An elevated level of toxicity is actually the last thing any human being needs when fighting infection, disease, or pneumonia.
Auto-immune disorders are mainly caused when humans ingest chemicals from food, drinking water, vaccines contaminated with chemicals, artificial sweeteners and environmental pollution. Chemotherapy, like the popular Cis-platinum, fills the body with horrific toxins, and doctors and scientists know it, but because the FDA outlaws doctors from suggesting or prescribing vitamins, supplements, herbs and super-foods, chemical therapy is still "recommended."

The way to beat cancer is to detoxify your body and build up your host immune system, not break it down further by dousing one tumor or one organ with chemicals that pollute the entire system. Put it this way, if an elderly person had an injured toe and it needed a cold compress to help heal it, would you submerge the senior in a freezing pool of water repeatedly for days, and then wait for the toe to heal? Doctors know how absurd the ideology of chemotherapy really is, but when a society bases the bulk of its therapy on chronic care management, the doctors are silently coerced into suggesting it or finding another profession.

Chemotherapy shows very little success with common solid tumors that occur in the colon, lung and breasts, as documented over the past decade, yet somehow doctors still push "chemo" to attempt to stave off tumors and malignant growths in these areas of the body.

Could it be some extreme coincidence that although 75% of doctors would refuse chemotherapy for themselves and their family members, they still prescribe it for 75% of their patients? The costly price of chemo and the likelihood of Big Pharma "kickbacks" is screaming the answer "no."

At best, chemotherapy should be considered alternative treatment, but for over 70 years Allopathic medicine has warped the public perception of true medicine, so if you happen to get cancer and your doctor tells you what to do, you may want to ask him/her if they would do the same thing for themselves and their family members.

* GLA (Gamma Linolenic Acid) - Borage Oil 3/d [Dr. Blaylock advises 1000mg GLA/d; taking too much is harmful -- see his Natural Strategies book] http://www.vitacost.com/NSI-BioAsteri-Borage-Oil-1-300-mg-240-softgels (NI 006915, qty240, 1300mg: 300mg GLA)
---

This is some advice from Dr. Blaylock (to be used along with the essential info in his cancer newsletters and book, "Natural Strategies for Cancer Patients"), a world-renown neurosurgeon who gave up his conventional medical practice when he found that people were much healthier if they lived a natural lifestyle along with eating the right foods and taking specific supplements than they were with prescriptions, chemotherapy, radiation, mammograms, fluoride, and other aspects of the conventional medical establishment.

There's more to it than just popping a couple of pills, including modifying your diet and lifestyle, but he and I think the rewards (and being able to live instead of die) are worth it.

I've also attached a couple of pertinent newsletters by him.

The diet should avoid the following, as they are proven potent cancer growth promoters.

* All excitotoxin food additives (MSG, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, vegetable protein extract or isolate, soy protein or soy protein extract, sodium or calcium caseinate, broth, stock, carrageenan, enzymes, etc) They are proven to increase the growth, invasion and spread of lung cancers. Check all labels -- the best way is to avoid all processed foods. Avoid all MSG; most hospital foods contain MSG in some form.

* drink only organic white tea (three cups of highly concentrated (2 tea bags)-and distilled water and plenty of it _10- 12 oz glasses a day. [I take Green Tea extract(EGCG) from www.vrp.com 2/d (1 AM, 1 PM), but white tea would be better if available as it's lower in fluoride]

* Avoid all sugar (especially high fructose corn syrup) and refined carbohydrates --they suppress immunity and promote cancer cell growth. Sugar is the main fuel for cancer cells.

* Avoid all omega-6 oils (corn, canola, safflower, sunflower, peanut, vegetable, soybean oils). They suppress immunity and have been proven to promote tumor growth and spread.

* use either organic cold pressed extra virgin olive oil and/or extra virgin coconut oil. (Check all processed foods --most use the bad oils, or contain genetically modified [GE / GMO] ingredients). All oils should be kept in the refrigerator to prevent oxidation.

* Curcumin 500 mg, quercetin 500 mg, and Hesperidin (www.swansonvitamins.com); open capsules and mix well into 1TBS of Cold-Pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil (if that is not enough oil to dissolve the curcumin, quercetin and hesperidin, add some more EV Olive Oil) using small bowl and spoon. Repeat for a total of three times a day. Together they powerfully inhibit cancer cell growth and prevent many of the complications of chemotherapy. In addition, studies have shown that they enhance the effectiveness of the chemotherapy and radiation treatments.

Curcumin 95% (3x500mg/d mixed well in oil -- see Dr. Blaylock's email below) http://www.luckyvitamin.com/790011140764.html , 888-635-0474

Hesperidin (2x500mg/day mixed into Cold-Pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil with curcumin & quercetin), Swanson [SW1097, Swanson Premium Hesperidin, 500mg 60Caps]

Quercetin/Bromelain, http://www.vitacost.com/NSI-Quercetin-Bromelain (6/d in oil)

* Ginger (or fresh organic grated Ginger), www.swansonvitamins.com NW486 (3/d) anti-inflammatory and also good for nausea/upset stomach [this is oil-soluble, so I open and mix the powder from these capsules in my Cold-Pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil, although they can be taken with food or even water for nausea]

* Pomegranate Extract Ellagitannins; www.iherb.com [SNS-02086, Source Naturals Pomegranate Extract, 500 mg standardized for ellagitannin content (not ellagic acid, which is very poorly absorbed) --500 mg three times a day. Also a very powerful cancer inhibitor. Examples of this are Red Raspberry or Pomegranate extract; Source Naturals is a reputable brand. (Source Naturals Pomegranate Extract: 4 tablets morning, 4 tablets lunch, 5 tablets supper or before bed (or same total number in divided dosages throughout day until cancer is gone -- then drop back down to 2 three times a day maintenance dose).

Use either Organic Cold Pressed Extra Virgin olive oil and Organic Extra Virgin coconut oil. (Check all processed foods -- most use the bad oils). Avoid all omega-6 oils (corn, canola, safflower, sunflower, peanut, soybean oils). They suppress immunity and have been proven to promote tumor growth and spread.

* Natural Full Spectrum Vitamin E (mixed tocopherols) with high gamma-E. 1000 IU a day (Full Spectrum vitamin E from www.swansonvitamins.com is a good one). Protects oils, keeps DHA from Calamarine from oxidizing as soon as it hits the stomach, and fights cancer; Swanson SWU209, 400iu (1-2/d)

* Alpha Lipoic Acid 100mg -- 2/d; www.swansonvitamins.com, SW1080

* Vitamin C 1000 mg of buffered C twice a day. (Now brand Magnesium Ascorbate, Swanson NOW-00756 -- not Ascorbic Acid, which acidifies your body). Mix into distilled water with organic Barley Grass (http://www.luckyvitamin.com/p-4560-now-foods-barley-grass-powder-organic-non-ge-2-lbs [from Kansas: 53381, NOW Foods - Barley Grass Powder) for a green drink.

* Bioflavonoids, Swanson SW128 (2/d), need to take along with vitamin C (take 70% as much as vitamin C);

* Trans-Resveratrol, 1/d (the only brand to get is Longevinex brand) shown to inhibit cancer cell growth and to protect normal tissues from chemotherapy. Note: I use www.iherb.com [REA-97861, ReserveAge Organics Resveratrol Cellular Age-Defying Formula, qty60 Veggie Caps, 100 mg Trans-Resveratrol (different from plain "Resveratrol"]

* A Good quality Multivitamin/mineral --I like Extend Core from Vitamin Research Inc, (www.vrp.com) [Note: I use Activite Sport, which is better because it has active forms of vitamins, including P5P, R5P, MTHF Folate, etc. that your body can use immediately, without your liver having to convert them. People who are sick cannot convert many vitamins to their active forms. http://www.vitacost.com/MHP-Activite-Sport [MHP 2200026, MHP Activite Sport, 120 Tablets. Serving: 4 tablets/day]

* Grapeseed extract extract (100mg 3 times a day) strengthens intracellular "glue" so that cancer has a tough time dissolving it to spread. www.swansonvitamins.com [SWH098]

* For Lung Cancer: Lutein 20 mg- take two twice a day; (80mg/d)(it also plays a major role in prevention of lung cancer). www.swansonvitamins.com [SWU277, 4x20mg/d -- Note: this high dosage is for Lung Cancer; for other cancers, 1/d of the Swanson multi-carotenoid should have enough lutein in it].

* DHA (1 capsule three times a day; 3/d) -- Calamarine oil from www.swansonvitmains.com [SWE062, Swanson EFAs Super DHA 500 from Calamarine, $6.99 - 10%, 30 Sgels; Calamarine EE Marine Oil 1.22grams; Total Omega-3 Fatty Acids (as ethyl esters) 675mg; DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) 500mg; EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) 125mg; Other Omega-3 Fatty Acids 50mg; Other ingredients: Gelatin, glycerin, purified (deionized) water, natural lemon flavor, proprietary antioxidant blend [natural tocopherols (from soy), rosemary extract, ascorbyl palmitate; molecularly-distilled to remove heavy metals and PCBs]; (Notice the great antioxidants to protect the oil! Take with full-spectrum vitamin E (sometime during the same day). Keep all oils in refrigerator after opening bottles]. Some supplements, including these, are oil soluble and will not be absorbed if swallowed with water: see Dr. Blaylock's book pp 14-15. (Note: Jon Barron, Dr. Blaylock and others have noted that people who are ill, overweight, middle-aged or elderly, or who eat a lot of omega-6 oils/fats tend to lack enough enzyme to convert the ALA in flaxseed oil to EPA/DHA, so I use purified DHA from Calamari (3/d) oil directly, as the unconverted ALA causes inflammation and increased, rather than decreased cancer). ["DHA has the more powerful anticancer effect and it is especially efficient in preventing cancer of the colon, prostate and breasts. Pure DHA is derived from algae, and an adult dose is 500 mg. a day. For children ages 2 to 12, the dose is 100 mg. a day. DHA inhibits cancer using a number of mechanisms -- principly inflammation reduction. Most of the others are beyond the scope of this newsletter. For more information on this and other cancer treatment topics, see my book, Natural Strategies for Cancer Patients." -- Dr. Blaylock]. Note that it's not enough to simply increase the omega-3 oils to make the omega-6 to omega-3 ratio more healthful (most people's ratio is about 40:1; it should be 2:1 or 1:1) -- Eliminate omega-6 oils (vegetable, canola, sunflower, safflower, soybean, corn, etc.); they are converted to arachidonic acid by your body and are pro-inflammatories that accelerate cancer. (You actually need a small amount of pure omega-6 oils which you will get on this protocol from your GLA and olive oil, which contains mostly health-promoting omega-9 mono-unsaturated fat).

* NAC (N-Acetyl Cysteine) 600mg is a glutathione precursor (main antioxidant) and also helps lungs; Swanson SW854 (900mg/d) 1.5/d; take one capsule with vitamins, then open a capsule and put 1/2 in your green drink at a different time during the day; 900-1000mg/d)

* Apigenin 1/d - www.swansonvitamins.com , Swanson SWU375 (1/d)

* The most powerful anticancer natural products include curcumin, quercetin, luteolin (artichoke extract), silymarin (milk thistle extract), ellagic acid (ellagitannins) and DHA (Calamarine oil from Swanson Vitamins). A low protein, high vegetable diet (especially specific raw organic blenderized vegetables) that is also low in sugar, simple carbohydrates, and omega-6 oils combines the many anticancer effects of natural substances. Iron should be avoided at all cost.

* Vitamin D3 5000iu/d (get the kind that is mixed in CLA oil [http://vitamind3.blogspot.com/ less likely to go rancid], such as Country Life Brand, www.iherb.com [CLF-05808, Vitamin D3, 5,000 IU, 200 Softgels -- not the dry powder capsules).

* Melatonin (seven 3mg/day at bedtime = 21mg/d fights cancer -- not primarily for sleep), Swanson (www.swansonvitamins.com) SW502

* Ginkgo Biloba, 3/d, Swanson SW893, 60mg, 24% (helps fight cancer)

* Magnesium Citrate powder, Swanson NOW-01295 (5/8tsp 1 time a day in PM) [I use 500mg of malate in morning and 500mg of citrate in evening, mixed in my green drink with distilled water, barley grass, Berry Green, Miracle Reds, Magnesium Ascorbate, etc.]

* Magnesium Malate 500mg/d, (1/4tsp 1 time a day in AM) http://www.vitacost.com/natures-life-magnesium-malate-12-7-oz [NLE 7007550, Nature's Life Magnesium Malate -- 12.7oz];

* Bilberry & Grape Skin extract, 100mg 3 times a day, (2-3/d) http://www.vitacost.com/NSI-European-Bilberry-Extract-with-Grape-Skin-Extract [NSI 3003464, European Bilberry Extract with Grape Skin Extract, 120 Capsules, $19.99, Bilberry Extract (standardized to 25% anthocyanidins) 80mg, Bilberry Extract (4:1) 120mg, Grape Skin Extract (standardized to 30% polyphenols) 225mg]

Berry Complete, www.iherb.com [LEX-14066, Life Extension Enhanced Berry Complete with RZD Aa, 60 Veggie Caps, $21.75*.84=$18.27];

* Optional: Zyflamend, 2/d, http://www.vitacost.com/New-Chapter-Zyflamend (anti-inflammatories are of great help for all types of diseases in which inflammation plays a key role, including arthritis, blood sugar problems, cancer, autoimmune diseases, etc.) Take with food in the middle of meals (may cause a "warming" feeling on an empty stomach) for muscle/joint/bone aches and inflammation and to reduce cancer growth. [iherb NCR-04054, New Chapter Zyflamend, 120 hexane-Free Softgel Capsules NC-4054];

* Barley Grass (organic, non-GE),(2TBS/d in distilled water green drink) http://www.iherb.com/ProductDetails.aspx?c=1&pid=392 [NOW-02662, $38.56*.84=$32.39, 2lbs]; http://www.luckyvitamin.com/p-4560-now-foods-barley-grass-powder-organic-non-ge-2-lbs [from Kansas: 53381, NOW Foods - Barley Grass Powder--Organic, Non-GE - 2 lbs, $32.69];

* Safe Deodorant, http://www.vitacost.com/HomeHealthDeodorantHerbalMagic-Unsctnd, $2.97, 2 oz (318858575091, HH 575091)

* Optional: Swanson Ultra Carotenoid Complex (1/d), SWU260, 4mg, qty30Sgels (you'll get some of this if you're blenderizing a lot of organic greens, but if finances allow, you might want to also take 1/d of this)

* Optional: Oil-soluble vitamin C (ascorbyl palmitate) (1/d, in addition to water-soluble buffered Magnesium Ascorbate form of vitamin C).

* Clean air (HEPA air filters), clean water (Waterwise Distiller), clean environment (no harmful pesticides, bug sprays, moth balls, toxic cosmetics/shampoos/soaps/perfumes/air fresheners or household chemicals/cleaners).

Because cancers are sensitive to oxygen (it kills cancer cells) deep breathing several times a day will increase blood oxygen and improve cancer cell killing. These are the major things known to improve the killing of cancer cells, especially lung cancer.

The body needs some iron for the immune system to be healthy, but too much iron (especially from red meat and iron supplements) increases cancers and heart disease.

Heterocyclic Amines formed from grilling and panfrying at high temperatures, as well as barbecuing and grilling (but not Broiling) cause liver and other cancers. Deep-frying (unhealthy anyhow because of the omega-6 oils used), baking and roasting produce some HCA's, but less.

Oxycontin, Tylenol and other pain killers and alcohol hurt the liver further.

Avoid carageenan, white starches, "whole wheat" flour and breads, artificial sweeteners, sugar, food colorings, MSG, flouridated or chlorinated water, omega-6 oils (vegetable, safflower, sunflower, corn, soy, canola, peanut, etc.)

Morton Lite potassium salt -- any grocery store (instead of regular salt)

Anti-inflammatories reduce cancer and relieve pain (instead of using steroids, which further suppress your immune system), are of great help for all types of diseases in which inflammation plays a key role, including arthritis, blood sugar problems, cancer, autoimmune diseases, etc. Some anti-inflammatories: lots of ginger, hot pepper (NOT black pepper, which is toxic), garlic, onion; liberal use of hot pepper and ginger not only kills cancer cells but also reduces inflammation, a factor in cancer, and is especially helpful in lung and other cancers.

Fresh parsley helps the kidneys detoxify your body. I also add fresh celery in blended juice to aid in detoxification. Also important is pure, distilled water (you can add a pinch of magnesium citrate to it, if you like).

Statin and many other cholesterol-lowering drugs, such as Mevacor and Lipitor, elevate liver enzymes -- they did so in me to the point that they said I had beginning liver cancer. (That's why I flushed them down the toilet and did other things to bring my cholesterol under control! See my Cholesterol page for more info.)

A note about buying supplements: if you buy "standardized" supplements (e.g., standardized for 24% silymarin, or etc.), you'll get more consistent results than if you simply buy whole herbs that aren't standardized (these are "pot-luck" -- some have enough or too much of the active ingredients in them, and others have very little or none). Also, this is why you want to buy reliable brands. You might consider using Froogle to shop so that you can compare prices quickly: http://froogle.google.com (Remember to take shipping into consideration, as some vendors charge more for shipping than for the product).

The only kinds of fish that have appreciable omega-3 oil content are sardines, salmon, herring, tuna and mackerel (in decreasing order); these need to be packed in water (or olive oil) to get any benefit from them, not an omega-6 oil like soybean/cottonseed/corn/safflower/sunflower/etc. Other kinds of fish, such as cod, trout, etc. have only about 1/10th to 1/20th as much.

I also strongly recommend that you Also see the section on Glyconutrients in the below section "My Main Cancer Protocol for all Cancers" below -- particularly about long chain aloe, fucoidan, AHCC, arabinoglactan.


My Main Cancer Protocol for all Cancers

Note: In addition to this Main Cancer Protocol, also see additional information about specific cancers. For example, about Breast Cancer (i.e., the information here is not complete unless you also read the above pages): http://www.distance-healer.com/83.html

Supplements I would take (Don't forget Metabolic Typing, Imagery, Pure Air & Water, Lifestyle and Spiritual Aspects, Household & Cosmetic Toxins):

I have put together a starter protocol of supplements to go along with the diet that you need to determine using the Metabolic Typing test, imagery, prayer, pure water and air (lifestyle changes). You will save a lot of money by ordering them online. These are ones I use myself, and for my family, that I think are good quality standardized extracts, are in the proper forms, and don't have many harmful excipients and binders in them, as well as dissolve quickly or are in capsule form. (See pp11-16 of Dr. Blaylock's book re most vitamins are of harmful quality).

You'll need to look through Dr. Blaylock's book (and PDF newsletters, if you subscribe to them through Newsmax) for cancer and breast cancer supplements, as well as some that prevent angiogenesis and metastasis, and boost the immune system and add them to the basic protocol. (See http://www.russellblaylockmd.com/ and www.NewsMax.com/BlaylockReports and his books http://web.mac.com/rblaylock/iWeb/Russell%20Blaylock%20M.D./Books.html) Dr. Blaylock's book, "Natural Strategies for Cancer Patients" (http://www.amazon.com/Natural-Strategies-Patients-Russell-Blaylock/dp/0758202210/)

These are some of the most important things that I would be taking (sometimes I open the capsules into my green drink, or take pills with my vegetable juice if it would otherwise take too much water to swallow them:

Your liver needs a lot of support with all of the toxins that it's trying to get rid of. Also, pomegranate extract, arabinogalactan and enzymes between meals fight cancer, grapeseed extract and MCP help keep it from spreading.

In Dr. Blaylock's newsletters, some of the things that he mentions for breast cancer are the following (see his book and add any that you feel are important to this list):

Maitake D- or DM fractions, 40-100mg/d extract, immune booster www.iherb.com [FDS-37136, FoodScience, Maitake D-Fraction, 60 Veggie Caps, $20.16; 25mg Maitake PD-Fraction (Grifola frondosa) Extract yielding 7.5mg D-Fraction/capsule; $.0448/g]; iherb [GME-10722, Grifron Maitake, Grifron-Pro, Maitake D Fraction Tablet 4X, Ultimate Immune Enhancer, 30mg, 120 Veggie Tabs, $76.76;

Beta Glucan 80% purity; www.iherb.com [JRW-03023, qty60, $21.97*.86=$18.89 (1.83/g), 250mg, at least 80%, Jarrow Formulas Beta Glucan is made from WGP 3-6, a special 1,3 / 1,6 glucan extract of the Baker's yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) cell walls. This product activates immune function by stimulation of NK cells, granulocytes, monocytes, and macrophages.

Swanson KY048, Kyolic #100 Yeast-Free Garlic, qty300, 300mg, $16.99

** Glyconutrients: - modulate immune system (helps it to recognize friend or foe): this is a mixture of Gum Ghatti (if available) + Arabinogalactan + Aloe Vera that you put in your green drink with barley grass, Lindberg Greens & Fruits Plus Organic, Miracle Reds, Magnesium Citrate powder, etc. and distilled water; the other glyconutrients that work together with this are in capsule form and are mentioned below.

Glyconutrients - Gum Ghatti [1-2tsp/d; less when cancer no longer active or gone] + high quality Arabinogalactan powder [3-5tsp/d; less when cancer no longer active or gone -- helps against liver metastasis and boosts immune system] + long-chain 200:1 Aloe Vera Powder [1-3tsp/d; less when cancer no longer active or gone] in bulk at a discount from mbullers@optonline.net, CSR Health & Nutrition, LLC -- email him for prices) These are some of the things I mix in my green drinks. Arabinogalactan is especially important when you want to prevent liver metastasis or treat tumors already in liver. Dramatically inhibits even more aggressive cancers from metastasizing; works better with above immune boosters (fucoidan, aloe, Thymulus, ProBoost, astragalus, echinacea, goldenseal, etc. The above "sugars that heal", including aloe, fucoidan, echinacea, goldenseal, etc. (technically, "polysaccharides", are different from harmful sugars that feed cancer; they're used by the body to recognize "friend" or "foe". Info at: http://www.nutrientsforhealth.com/ and http://www.glycoinformation.com/sugars.html ) Since these immune stimulants all work by different mechanisms, it's important to use several specific ones. You can make your own, if you'd like: http://www.burnoutsolutions.com.au/glyconutrients.htm) Note: Aloe is better absorbed when taken with a fatty meal and/or lecithin granules. Note for men battling prostate cancer: I would avoid taking any Chondritin Sulfate (for arthritis), since this can stimulate prostate cancer (since the prostate contains receptors for chondroitin).

Arabinogalactan, http://www.betterlife.com/prod_home_page.asp?prod_id=16813 (3-5tsp/d; less when cancer no longer active or gone) http://www.vitacost.com/FoodScience-Arabinogalactan-Powder [$17.16, 100g, 20 servings of 1 scoop] (or you can get this from Mike Bullers above); (One of the Glycos that works together with the other glyconutrients).

Did You Know Aloe Vera Offers Miracle Solutions for Serious Diseases?
by Paul Fassa
by Paul Fassa
http://naturalsociety.com/find-aloe-vera-species-offer-miracle-cures-serious-diseases/
http://aloedecaus.com/father-romano-zago

Out of 240 species of Aloe, only three or four of them offer significant, powerful medicinal properties. All the others commercially available are useful for digestive and skin irritations, including burns.

Aloe vera barbadenis is one ofthe more medicinally powerful. Another is the Aloe arborescense plant, which studies have shown is even more powerful than other Aloe Vera leaves, including the barbedenis variety. Both of these are available in organic whole leaf juices. Whole leaf Aloe arborescence juice is what Franciscan Friar Romano Zago used to treat cancers in his Brazilian diocese.

Father Zago wrote papers during the 1980s on the Aloe solution for cancer that he had learned from native villagers that he used clinically. The arborescense variety was indigenous to Brazil, but is cultivated and available elsewhere. Zago gave his blessing to an American company that promised to remain faithful to his original plant recipe. (http://www.aloedeca.com/northamerica/ZagoNA.htm)

Dramatically Successful Aloe Vera Trials Ignored
During the 1980s decade of peak AIDS terror, trials were conducted among AIDS patients in Belgium and the USA. where patients would drink five ounces of whole leaf Aloe vera barbedenis juice four times daily. They discovered rapid dramatic improvements with or without AZT, the pharmaceutical prescribed for AIDS patients which sometimes results in death.

One AIDS patient had also been diagnosed with liver cancer so horrific he was given less than a month to live. Within a year of drinking the juice, his AIDS symptoms were completely gone and there were no more tumors in his liver. His doctors told him there was no healing event such as his in the medical literature.

A doctor involved with one of the 1980s AIDS trials, pathologist H. Reginald McDaniel MD, was at first skeptical and reluctant to lend his expertise. But after contracting viral pneumonia that wasn't responding to conventional therapy, he requested a "couple of cases" for himself. He was completely treated in days.

Soon after his quick and complete viral pneumonia recovery, he started using Aloe vera with his patients, and has had tremendous results even with cancer cases.

Some object to whole leaf versions of Aloe vera juice. There are filleted versions that are effective as supplements for overall health, but the phyonutrients in the leaves are considered the miracle workers for serious diseases.

Aloe Suppressed
The reason you haven't heard about these dramatic health improvements from Aloe vera is that they are hidden from public awareness. The Medical Mafia wants to perpetuate it's toxic, expensive treatments to ensure constant sick care and "research" revenue.

A frightening example of suppressing a non-toxic, inexpensive Aloe vera based treatment occurred in Tampa, Florida late 2001. Research physician Ivan Danhof MD was in the process of obtaining an investigative new drug status (IND) legally from the FDA with Aloe vera extracts. His nutritional clinic was using Aloe extracts with IVs or injections.

He had only terminal cancer patients from hospice, yet the success rate was 80% and no one was harmed. Government health agency thugs raided the cancer clinic, pulling IVs out of patients whose conditions had been steadily improving and closed the operation down. Many of those cancer patients on the road to recovery died months after the raid

Dramatically Successful Aloe Vera Trials Ignored
During the 1980s decade of peak AIDS terror, trials were conducted among AIDS patients in Belgium and the USA. where patients would drink five ounces of whole leaf Aloe vera barbedenis juice four times daily. They discovered rapid dramatic improvements with or without AZT, the pharmaceutical prescribed for AIDS patients which sometimes results in death.

One AIDS patient had also been diagnosed with liver cancer so horrific he was given less than a month to live. Within a year of drinking the juice, his AIDS symptoms were completely gone and there were no more tumors in his liver. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U2dx0NKP8y8) His doctors told him there was no healing event such as his in the medical literature.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lHlCvBQj_LE

A doctor involved with one of the 1980s AIDS trials, pathologist H. Reginald McDaniel MD, was at first skeptical and reluctant to lend his expertise. But after contracting viral pneumonia that wasn't responding to conventional therapy, he requested a "couple of cases" for himself. He was completely treated in days.

Soon after his quick and complete viral pneumonia recovery, he started using Aloe vera with his patients, and has had tremendous results even with cancer cases.

Some object to whole leaf versions of Aloe vera juice. There are filleted versions that are effective as supplements for overall health, but the phyonutrients in the leaves are considered the miracle workers for serious diseases.

MPS Gold 100 122g + MPS Gold 3X 61g powder Long chain 200:1 high dalton aloe vera inner leaf powder
Dr. David Wheeler's MPS Gold: http://www.0disease.com/0dietary_molecularchart.html; http://www.0disease.com/0order.html; http://www.0disease.com/mpsgoldbasics.htm; Retail pricelist: http://www.0disease.com/pricelist.htm; http://www.0disease.com/0sweethealth.html; Dr. David Wheeler and his staff: by email at wheeleroffice@aol.com or by telephone toll free in the USA at 800-760-3530 or 888-342-6772 and international at 503-771-6943 9am to 5pm PST; http://www.0disease.com/0dietary_mpsdirec.html: The best way to take MPS-GOLD 100, an dried Aloe Supplement in a powdered form, is to start out with a 1/4 teaspoon the first day mixed with about 4 ounces of water (ideally drinking water activated by Primordial M-Water). Stir very thoroughly. The MPS-GOLD 100 can be mixed with lecithin granules or powder, about one to one in terms of volume. If a person has a soy allergy, then use an essential fatty acid oil such a flax seed oil (Immune Revitlaizer).If the lecithin or flax seed oil cause your digestive system to get upset, then take the MPS-GOLD 100 by itself mixed with water. Drink first thing in the morning before eating anything. Wait at least 1/2 hour before eating or drinking anything else except for more water. There can be detoxification responses or other healing responses because of the immune modulating effects of the MPS-GOLD 100. The dosage can be lowered or kept at the same level for a period of time that is most comfortable. You can guarantee MPS-GOLD 100 is totally non-toxic. For therapeutic purposes at a chronic serious level, the dosage plan can continue to a 1/2 teaspoon on day 2, 1 teaspoon on day 3, 1-1/2 teaspoons on day 4, 2 teaspoons on day 5, and finally 2-1/2 teaspoons each day following. For acute serious health issues, continue to increase the dose until it reaches a maximum of 7-1/2 teaspoons a day. 2-1/2 teaspoons equal approximately 1000 mg. or 1 gram. Stay at 1000 mg. a day until your health condition improves or you feel based on all the evidence you have that it is appropriate to lower the dose. For a general rejuvenation program, even if there are no serious health issues, take 1000 mg. a day for 30 to 60 days and then cut back to a maintenance dose of 1/4 to 1/2 of a teaspoon thereafter. For very serious health issues, it is better to stay at a higher dose for some period of time and then to decrease dosage eventually to a maintenance level. MPS GOLD 3X: To increase immune system response the MPS GOLD 3X can be added in with the MPS-GOLD 100. The formula is simple: simply add half the amount of MPS-GOLD 3X as compared to the amount of MPS-GOLD 100 that you mix with water before drinking it. Notes: The lecithin or other oils with fatty acids increase the absorption through the gut wall. Drink plenty of good clean drinking water throughout the day activated by Dr. Wheeler's Primordial M-Water. Store all MPS-GOLD products in a cool dry place and keep the lid on when not using. The teaspoon should be a real measuring teaspoon and the measuring should be level. Lecithin granules or powder as well as flax seed or other oils can be purchased in most health food stores. Get the loose kind, not in capsules. MPS GOLD 100 contains stabilized Aloe Vera Mannose and Galactose (referred to as Galactomannans) extracted as a loose powder from fresh, organic gel, with the complete range of molecular weights from 10,000 to 2,500,000 Daltons that is found in the living plant that is known to support a healthy immune system, promote stem cell growth and many other health benefits. MPS GOLD 3X contains stabilized Aloe Vera Galactomannans extracted from fresh organic gel as a loose powder but with a focused range of molecular weights. MPS GOLD 3X boosts the immune system healing response dramatically but should only be taken with MPS GOLD 100 as a support product. Only Mannose and Galactose combined together as stabilized Galactomannans have been proven as effective Glyconutrients for health. Among all Aloe Vera and Glyconutrient products, only MPS GOLD 100 and MPS GOLD 3X contain a high enough concentration of stabilized Galactomannans to provide substantial health benefits. http://www.0disease.com/mpsgoldbasics.htm: Unlike even the best competitor Glyconutrient and Aloe Vera products, MPS GOLD 100 only requires a maximum of two tsps a day for a high therapeutic effect. Other well known MLM and direct retail Glyconutrient products require 20 tsps a day or more. The 122g bottle of MPS GOLD 100 will last a month based on taking two tsps a day for therapeutic effects and four months at half a tsp a day for health maintenance. The smaller sized bottles will last an amount of time proportional to their volume as compared to the MPS GOLD 100. MPS GOLD products should ideally be taken before breakfast on an empty stomach and then wait at least fifteen minutes before consuming other liquids of solids. Simply measure the desired amount of MPS GOLD 100 into a cup. If electing to use the MPS GOLD 3X booster product add in half the amount of MPS GOLD 100 (for example, using two tsps of MPS GOLD 100 requires one tsp of MPS GOLD 3X). Then add water or juice and possibly fatty acids to increase absorption (equal volume of olive oil, flax seed oil, any other vegetable based oil of high quality or lecithin granules/powder if no soy allergy or sensitivity exists). Stir the mixture and then drink. Starting in August, 1995 each bottle size was named after the amount of Aloe Vera Galactomannans they contain. Thus, the following versions were developed: one ounce (28.35 grams), half ounce (14.20 grams) and quarter ounce (7.10 grams). However, the total weight for each bottle is considerably higher when considering the sum total of all the plant based powder they contain. In addition to Galactomannans in Aloe Vera gel there also many other trace ingredients and fiber, which provide a holistic healing effect. The large bottle contains 122 grams and delivers 60 tsps of powder. The middle bottle contains 61 grams and delivers 30 tsps of powder. The small bottle contains 30.5 grams and delivers 15 tsps of powder. MPS GOLD 100 comes in all three bottle sizes, while MPS GOLD 3X only comes in the 61g and 30.5g versions][http://www.altcancer.com/products/mailbox: "MPS-GOLD is manufactured by Carrington Labs, unfortunutely Carrington extracts the very long/high molecular weight mannans for pharmaceutical purposes. So, basically your only getting the high, medium, and low molecular weight mannans, which are still good. But very little if any of the very long / high molecular weight, because of Carrington's extraction method. Our associates know Dr. Wheeler personally and he's been using this marketing approach for the past 8 years. There is a fundamental difference between the results you get in freeze-drying versus low temperature dehydration: Freeze dried = up to 500,000 - 800,000 daltons; Dehydrated = up to 1,000,000 - 2,000,000 daltons; [http://www.longevityplus.com/main/other-nutritional-supplements/aloe-immune] [http://www.nutritiongeeks.com/aloe-vera-200-60/aloe-vera-200.html] [http://www.nothinbutherbs.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=6395]

How to Find the Best Aloe Vera for Diabetes by Dr. Rowen, Jan 13, 2006:
Last week, I told you how diabetes can be mastered with natural remedies. In the first article, I concentrated on aloe vera. This herb can have an incredible impact on your diabetes. The article was so popular, we've received a flood of inquiries about where to buy the best aloe vera available. There are many products on the market. Years ago, I read a book on aloe by Lee Ritter called "Aloe Vera, A Mission Discovered". The book talked about how aloe vera products greatly differ in concentration, potency, and effectiveness. And I've since seen this to be true in my own practice. Aloe contains large amounts of a substance called mucilaginous-poly-saccharides (MPS). These compounds are very complex stacks of sugar molecules. They have extraordinary benefits for your immune system, circulation, wound healing, inflammation, glucose tolerance, and much more. Unfortunately MPS molecules are very fragile. If the cut plant is not handled properly, enzymes in the plant will immediately act to break down these very large molecules into more simple and inactive sugars. It's for this reason that I recommended a product with documented MPS content. And I recommended you take aloe extract containing 1,200 mg of MPS daily for ideal results. There are many fine aloe products on the market. Some are even distributed by multi-level companies. The product I like the best, and that I'm currently using is called Aloe Immune. Aloe Immune contains a high quantity of the most important MPS fraction -- acemannan. Acemannan may be one of nature's most potent immune stimulants. I generally suggest that adults start with 2,000 mg of Aloe Immune daily. Then you can work up as tolerated. There's no known toxicity. You can find Aloe Immune at many health food stores and online or at Longevity Plus (800-580-7587 or http://www.longevityplus.net/. The other two products I like are Aloe Master (comes in concentrated liquid or capsules)800-934-2563, http://www.aloemaster.com/ and Dr. David Wheeler's MPS Gold (800-760-3530); http://www.0disease.com/. You also might be able to find these products in your health food stores. Please write me and let me know how well these products work for you. Yours for medical freedom, Robert Jay Rowen, MD]

Wellmune 80% Beta 1,3/1,6 Glucan [Source Naturals' is 70% from same company] [Blaylock's bk Nat Strategies for Cancer Pts p208-215; bk Medicinal Mushrooms p36-7: each 1-3/1-6 beta glucan (from yeast and various mushrooms) is different, stimulates different immune cells, and is effective against different pathogens and types of cancer -- each has its advantages, so a mixture is better, since you don't know what your particular needs are. Epicor is fermented yeast beta glucan. blaylock_heartattack_22.pdf:
Q: In the Wellness Report you state that beta 1,3/1,6-glucan "enhances the type of immunity that clears the body of viruses and bacteria, but it should only be taken during infections (two to four weeks) and not for extended periods of time." I have been taking one 500 mg. capsule of beta-glucan complex each day as part of my supplement program for over two years now. Have I unknowingly been doing harm to myself by greatly exceeding your recommended usage?
A: Beta-glucan is a natural immune stimulant. It boosts cellular immunity, the system used against viruses, bacteria, fungi and cancer. The only real contraindication is related to autoimmune diseases. I suggest caution because many conditions are secondary to overactivation of the immune system - a point I have outlined in my newsletters. It is best to imitate the natural system - or boost immunity when you really need it - and then let it rest. In other words, you might wait until the first hint of illness to start the beta-glucan. Beta 1,3/1,6 glucan: 250 mg. a day. As we have seen, this is an excellent immune stimulant and has been shown to significantly protect bone marrow cells from radiation damage (syn: xray, nuclear). Cells in the bone marrow and spleen are the most sensitive to radiation injury. Source Naturals and ImmunoDyne both make a very pure product. Purity is essential.]
[Dr. Blaylock vs bk Medicinal Mushrooms p36-7 --> Yeast beta-blucan: Note on "Beta Glucan" in health supplements: There is a type of 1-3 beta glucan found in yeast. This is the common source of "beta glucan" that you see in so many health supplements these days. The yeast beta glucan has very little effect in the human system. There are NO prescription drugs made anywhere from yeast beta glucans. (There are over 40 different prescription drugs made from mushrooms). The claims usually made for the yeast beta glucans is based on research done with fish in Norway 20 years ago. Works OK for fish. Too bad it has not been shown to work for humans. Yeast beta glucan seems to be all about marketing to make big profits on cheap raw materials produced in China. Many experts will state openly not to waste your money on it. If the label does not say what the source is, don't buy it. Believe me, when a supplement manufacturer spends the money to use effective, mushroom derived beta glucans, you can be sure they will tell you about it: http://www.pharmaceuticalmushrooms.nwbotanicals.org/products/comparison.htm] See http://www.meditationexpert.com/ebok/MUSHROOMS.pdf for info on beta glucan, yeast, mushrooms, dosages for ailments/cancer/tinnitus/AIDS/HIV, etc.

I also found information indicating that in over 4 years of practical experience with physicians and other healthcare professionals the minimal dosing indicated for small children should begin at 40-50 mg. Small pets should also benefit from such a dose. According to the FDA, I can't prescribe dosages. However, after researching the benefits of high dosage beta glucans . . .

Biopolymer Engineering the parent company of Life Source basics has established a recommended human dosage of approximately 2 milligrams of beta glucan daily per kilogram of body weight. This dosage of particulate yeast beta glucan is based on results of a human biomarker clinical study and is consistent with the effective dose in more than one dozen animal studies. 500mg, $53, 877-807-2007) There is a large body body of preclinical animal research demonstrating the effectiveness of Whole Glucan Particle (WGP) beta glucan in cancer, radiation and several infectious disease models. There are no controlled and published studies demonstrating the effectiveness of submicron particles in a disease model system. Don't be fooled by marketing gimmicks about "micronized" beta glucan. Is yeast superior to other beta glucan sources? Not all beta glucans are equal. Substantial research demonstrates that yeast beta glucan has far superior immune-enhancing benefits when compared with oat and barley beta glucans. The disparity is attributed to differences in the glucans' molecular structure and forms that result in lower concentrations of beta 1,3 glucan, the bioactive component, in cereal products. Mushroom-based products have demonstrated immune-enhancing benefits similar to yeast beta glucan, however, they are more difficult to process and purify. How important is beta glucan purity? The difference may have significant health consequences. As with many foods, a small portion of the population should avoid Baker's yeast. Extensive research has demonstrated that a component of the yeast cell called "mannan" may trigger an allergic reaction or inflammatory bowel flare in individuals with yeast allergies, Inflammatory Bowel Disease or Crohn's Disease. Unfortunately, some beta glucan dietary supplements manufacturers fail to adequately separate the beta glucan from the mannan and mannoproteins and other components of the yeast cell."

"Immune Assist Critical Care/IACC - (PSP and PSK are made from specially processing Coriolus Versicolor) [Note: overuse or too high a dosage of immune boosters, echinacea, goldenseal, BRM4, ProBoost, etc. may stimulate immune system too much, causing canker sores, if taken too long] [may help when fever and green/ yellow phlegm; causes canker sores] [Dr. Mark Stengler says that it must be hot-water extracted, or it won't work very well against cancer; simply grinding up the mushrooms doesn't extract the medicine. A 10 yr study proved that C. Versicolor can even save the lives of late-stage lung cancer patients. -- My note: perhaps fermented would be good, also?][Although PSK is rarely available in the United States, hot-water extract products made from Coriolus versicolor mushrooms are available. These products may have activity related to that of PSK, but their use with chemotherapy has not been studied: http://www.naturesbounty.com/vf/healthnotes/hn_live/Drug/Docetaxel.htm] http://sci.cancerresearchuk.org/labs/med_mush/med_mush.html, http://www.recoverymedicine.com/immune_fx_article.htm, Recently, reports have come from China indicating that a large daily dose of Maitake D-Fraction (3 grams/day), (as per Dr. Nanba's original formula designation; not necessarily the same thing as ""D-Fraction"" [TM] available over the counter in the USA) combined with conventional treatments, has significantly increased the remission rates for lung cancer (82% remission with Maitake vs. 9.8% without): http://www.pharmaceuticalmushrooms.nwbotanicals.org/lexicon/immune84/immuneassist.htm (rick@nwbotanicals.org), http://pharmaceuticalmushrooms.nwbotanicals.org/wholesale.htm, http://www.pharmaceuticalmushrooms.nwbotanicals.org/products/immune84cc.htm, http://www.pharmaceuticalmushrooms.nwbotanicals.org/products/comparison.htm, http://www.alohamedicinals.com/ia-compare.htm, http://www.biomedicalabs.com/immune_fx.htm [Is it true that some polysaccharides and Beta-Glucans cannot be absorbed when taken orally?
Yes. Beta-Glucans are extremely large organic molecules and some are not readily absorbed in the stomach and intestines, but pass through unchanged. But as the Beta-Glucans are long chain molecules, research has found that breaking the chain into shorter segments makes the substance more readily bio-available while maintaining the same clinical properties. One way to do this is to co-administer vitamin C with the mushroom extracts. It is not possible to mix the vitamin C with the formula ahead of time, as the breakdown process continues and ultimately leaves behind just simple sugar molecules. But the addition of 1,000 mg (1 gram) of vitamin C at the same time the mushroom or mushroom extracts are taken, logarithmically increases the absorption of the Beta-Glucans, making them much more bio-available to the system. (The enzymes found in Ginger root and Pineapple may also accomplish the same effect, for those that cannot take vitamin C supplements): http://www.recoverymedicine.com/immune_fx_article.htm, http://www.biomedicalabs.com/immune_fx_article.htm, http://www.pharmaceuticalmushrooms.nwbotanicals.org/lexicon/immune84/immuneassist.htm] [Beta-glucan is a natural immune stimulant. It boosts cellular immunity, the system used against viruses, bacteria, fungi and cancer. The only real contraindication is related to autoimmune diseases. I suggest caution because many conditions are secondary to overactivation of the immune system - a point I have outlined in my newsletters. It is best to imitate the natural system - or boost immunity when you really need it - and then let it rest. In other words, you might wait until the first hint of illness to start the beta-glucan.

For more serious illnesses, cancer, etc. and long term, it's better to rotate several different mushrooms, using two of the mushrooms at a time for 3 mos per each combination: e.g., A+B, A+C, A+D, B+C, B+D, C+D, then repeating.

http://www.biomedicalabs.comJason Watkin - Biomedica <jwatkin@biomedicalabs.com> Answer to Jason's question to Aloha Medicinals re Immune Fx: "We do all sorts of extractions. We supply quite a few customers. The commonest type is the exact same extraction as used in producing PSK. It is a hot water extraction, followed by an ethanol precipitation of the hot water extract. The alcohol-insoluble portion is then collected and dried. We make PSK, although the name is a trademark, so we can't call it that. The Coriolus extract we supply you is PSK."John Holliday -- Jason http://www.pharmaceuticalmushrooms.nwbotanicals.org/products/comparison.htm: Note on "Beta Glucan" in health supplements: There is a type of 1-3 beta glucan found in yeast. This is the common source of "beta glucan" that you see in so many health supplements these days. The yeast beta glucan has very little effect in the human system. There are NO prescription drugs made anywhere from yeast beta glucan. (There are over 40 different prescription drugs made from mushrooms). The claims usually made for the yeast beta glucan is based on research done with fish in Norway 20 years ago. Works OK for fish. Too bad it doesn't work for humans. Yeast beta glucan is a marketing scheme to make a big profit on cheap raw materials produced in China. Don't waste your money on it. If the label does not say what the source is, don't buy it. Believe me, when a supplement manufacturer spends the money to use effective, mushroom derived beta glucan, you can be sure they will tell you about it. [Dr. Blaylock has written papers about the effectiveness of yeast beta glucans, and there are articles about human studies in the book Medical Mushrooms, but it seems that yeast BG is not as strong as mushroom BG, tails off after 3-4 mos (doesn't work any more unless it's cycled), and affects different parts of the immune system than each of the mushrooms in turn do. Even each type of mushroom has its own benefits, also: that's why it's important to use a variety of them.] Mushroom Extract: Cordyceps, Tremella, Reishi, Shiitake, Maitake, and Turkey tails: Nutricology Mycocyclin (52530) (see NWBotanicals comparison for info about this vs Immune Assist) New Chapter Host Defense (don't think these are concentrated extracts).

Paradise Herbs Astragalus Root Extract can be substituted for the Gum Tragacanth, or you can find Gum Tragacanth somewhere. You could also take some Doctor's Best Fucoidan with the various gums (open the capsule and mix in oil; it's oil soluble). According to the literature, "Fucoidan makes other immune-boosters even more effective. When Dr. Makise combined it with a powerful natural extract called AHCC, the results were near-miraculous".

Tragacanth is not as essential as the aloe and arabinogalactan. You can substitute other items and the two you suggest might work fine, especially the fucoidan (and astragalus). You should know that the arabinogalactan comprises 50% of the formula and the aloe is 10%.

Also, chew 1TBS non-GMO lecithin granules twice a day when you take the DHA oil, and take 1/d full-spectrum vitamin E. Open the capsules of curcumin, quercetin and hesperidin and mix well into 2 TBS / day Cold-Pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil (if that is not enough oil to dissolve the curcumin, quercetin and hesperidin, add some more EV Olive Oil) using small bowl and spoon. [Some supplements, including these, are oil soluble and will not be absorbed if swallowed with water: see Dr. Blaylock's book pp 14-15]. See below for sources and amounts of above. (Note: Jon Barron, Dr. Blaylock and others have noted that people who are ill, overweight, middle-aged or elderly, or who eat a lot of omega-6 oils/fats tend to lack enough enzyme to convert the ALA in flaxseed oil to EPA/DHA, so I use purified DHA from Calamari (3/d) oil directly, as the unconverted ALA causes inflammation and increased, rather than decreased cancer). ["DHA has the more powerful anticancer effect and it is especially efficient in preventing cancer of the colon, prostate and breasts. Pure DHA is derived from algae, and an adult dose is 500 mg. a day. For children ages 2 to 12, the dose is 100 mg. a day. DHA inhibits cancer using a number of mechanisms - principly inflammation reduction. Most of the others are beyond the scope of this newsletter. For more information on this and other cancer treatment topics, see my book, Natural Strategies for Cancer Patients." -- Dr. Blaylock]. Note that it's not enough to simply increase the omega-3 oils to make the omega-6 to omega-3 ratio more healthful (most people's ratio is about 40:1; it should be 2:1 or 1:1) -- Eliminate omega-6 oils (vegetable, canola, sunflower, safflower, soybean, corn, etc.); they are converted to arachidonic acid by your body and are pro-inflammatories that accelerate cancer. (Note: you actually need a small amount of pure omega-6 oils which you will get on this protocol from your GLA and olive oil, which contains mostly health-promoting omega-9 mono-unsaturated fat).

The body needs some iron for the immune system to be healthy, but too much iron (especially from red meat and iron supplements) increases cancers and heart disease.

Heterocyclic Amines formed from grilling and panfrying at high temperatures, as well as barbecuing and grilling (but not Broiling) cause liver and other cancers. Deep-frying (unhealthy anyhow because of the omega-6 oils used), baking and roasting produce some HCA's, but less.

Oxycontin, Tylenol and other pain killers and alcohol hurt the liver further.

Avoid carageenan, white starches, "whole wheat" flour and breads, artificial sweeteners, sugar, food colorings, MSG, flouridated or chlorinated water, omega-6 oils (vegetable, safflower, sunflower, corn, soy, canola, peanut, etc.)

Morton Lite potassium salt -- any grocery store (instead of regular salt)

Anti-inflammatories reduce cancer and relieve pain (instead of using steroids, which further suppress your immune system), are of great help for all types of diseases in which inflammation plays a key role, including arthritis, blood sugar problems, cancer, autoimmune diseases, etc. Some anti-inflammatories: lots of ginger, hot pepper (NOT black pepper, which is toxic), garlic, onion; liberal use of hot pepper and ginger not only kills cancer cells but also reduces inflammation, a factor in cancer, and is especially helpful in lung and other cancers.

Fresh parsley helps the kidneys detoxify your body. I also add fresh celery in blended juice to aid in detoxification. Also important is pure, distilled water (you can add a pinch of magnesium citrate to it, if you like).

Statin and many other cholesterol-lowering drugs, such as Mevacor and Lipitor, elevate liver enzymes -- they did so in me to the point that they said I had beginning liver cancer. (That's why I flushed them down the toilet and did other things to bring my cholesterol under control! See my Cholesterol page for more info.)

A note about buying supplements: if you buy "standardized" supplements (e.g., standardized for 24% silymarin, or etc.), you'll get more consistent results than if you simply buy whole herbs that aren't standardized (these are "pot-luck" -- some have enough or too much of the active ingredients in them, and others have very little or none). Also, this is why you want to buy reliable brands. You might consider using Froogle to shop so that you can compare prices quickly: http://froogle.google.com (Remember to take shipping into consideration, as some vendors charge more for shipping than for the product).

The only kinds of fish that have appreciable omega-3 oil content are sardines, salmon, herring, tuna and mackerel (in decreasing order); these need to be packed in water (or olive oil) to get any benefit from them, not an omega-6 oil like soybean/cottonseed/corn/safflower/sunflower/etc. Other kinds of fish, such as cod, trout, etc. have only about 1/10th to 1/20th as much.

Sources for Above Supplements:

The following is additional information from Dr. Blaylock in his email (to be used along with the essential info in his cancer newsletters and book, "Natural Strategies for Cancer Patients":

Avoid all excitotoxin food additives (MSG, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, vegetable protein extract or isolate, soy protein or soy protein extract, sodium or calcium caseinate, broth, stock, carrageenan, enzymes, etc) They are proven to increase the growth, invasion and spread of lung cancers. Check all labels -- the best way is to avoid all processed foods. Avoid all MSG; most hospital foods contain MSG in some form.

Drink only white tea (three cups of high concentrated (2 tea bags) - and distilled water and plenty of it: 10- 12 oz glasses a day.

Avoid all sugar (especially high fructose corn syrup) and refined carbohydrates -- they suppress immunity and promote cancer cell growth. Sugar is the main fuel for cancer cells.

Avoid all omega-6 oils (corn, canola, safflower, sunflower, peanut, soybean oils). They suppress immunity and have been proven to promote tumor growth and spread.

Use either Extra Virgin olive oil and/or Extra Virgin coconut oil. (Check all processed foods -- most use the bad oils)

Curcumin 500 mg and quercetin 500 mg should be mixed with olive oil (one tablespoon full) -mix well and take three times a day. Together they powerfully inhibit cancer cell growth and prevent many of the complications of chemotherapy. In addition, studies have shown that they enhance the effectiveness of the chemotherapy and radiation treatments.

Ellagitannin (not ellagic acid, which is very poorly absorbed) is also a very powerful cancer inhibitor. Examples of this are Red Raspberry or Pomegranate extract; Source Naturals is a reputable brand.

Unlocking Your Food's Potential - It's Something To Chew On

While diets derived from plants (fruits and vegetables) already utilize that food group's unrivaled cancer-prevention power, there is a little-discussed secret that will allow you to maximize your exposure to the miracle substances in plants.

The problem is that all of these cancer inhibitors are locked inside sealed compartments within fruits and vegetables. Every compartment is a cell, but unlike mammalian cells, each is enveloped in a casing of cellulose. Unfortunately, the human digestive tract does not possess an enzyme capable of dissolving these tough shells.

As a result, unless you break them, you absorb little or none of your food's nutrients. But there are several solutions to this dilemma. Chewing mechanically shatters some of the shells, but studies have shown that eating raw vegetables yields only about 30% of their nutrients since most people do not chew vegetables until they are a fine mush. Boiling also releases the nutrients, but some are destroyed by the intense heat, while some are lost to the water in which they are cooked. Steaming vegetables preserves more of their nutrients.

The third method - which I prefer - is to puree fresh vegetables in a high-speed blender. I use a brand called a Vita Mix. When you blend or liquefy fruits and vegetables in a high-speed blender, over 90% of the nutrients are released for absorption. Many studies have shown that you must eat at least ten servings of fruits and vegetables a day to attain maximum nutritional effectiveness. For those over age 55, it's twelve servings. That's a lot of fruits and vegetables. A serving is a cup of loose vegetables, such as lettuce, and half a cup of more solid fruits and vegetables, like broccoli and strawberries. The reason you have to eat so many is that you are absorbing only 30% of the nutrients. But by putting the fruits and vegetables in a blender, you can consume a much smaller volume but still get the full benefit.

Most people have to develop a taste for pureed vegetables. I love them. But don't make the mistake of using only fruits or carrots in your mix. Remember - both contain a lot of sugar, and you'll recall that sugar breeds cancer. You can add a halfcup of carrots or blueberries, but no more.

One major problem with drinking fruits and vegetables is diarrhea. Some people new to this practice cannot tolerate the high concentration of fiber initially.

It is best to start by diluting the mix with onethird volume of distilled water and drinking only 4 to 6 oz. Gradually increase the volume until you are drinking 8 to 12 ounces a day. Once you have adjusted, you can alter the concentration to suit your taste.
One of the best-kept secrets hidden from the public is that the National Institutes of Health and the National Cancer Institute have been conducting studies with vegetable and fruit extracts for years, discovering their remarkable cancer-inhibiting effects. Most oncologists know very little about this and many have, in fact, told their patients not to eat vegetables, thinking it might interfere with their treatments.

This advice is based on the erroneous belief that chemotherapy and radiation treatments depend on free radical destruction of cancer cells. In fact, this is only partially true. Most treatments inhibit cancer via many different mechanisms.

Nutrients from fruits and vegetables - especially the flavonoids - have remarkable powers that have been confirmed by a number of researchers and documented in most major oncology journals. They enhance the ability of most chemotherapy agents and radiation to kill cancer cells, at the same time protecting normal cells from their harmful effects. Unfortunately, most oncologists ignore these studies and instead concentrate on new chemotherapy protocols and radiation methods.

Supplements: Six Of One, Half a Dozen Of The Other?

One of the most common mistakes people make is to buy the cheapest supplements they can find, because they assume they're all the same. Most wouldn't even purchase toilet paper this way. Yet the public is not alone in this belief. Too many research studies on vitamin supplements and cancer prevention use vitamin samples that have no anti-cancer activity or are known to be of inferior quality.

Take vitamin E for example. Manufactured forms - called DL-alpha-tocopherols and d-alpha-tocopherol acetate - have little anti-cancer activity and are both distributed and absorbed poorly in the body. And in high doses it interferes with carotenoid absorption. Yet these are the most common forms sold and used in experiments - especially in human testing.

A number of studies have demonstrated that natural forms of vitamins E (containing d-alpha-tocopherol and three other forms of vitamin E) and d-alpha-tocopheryl succinate have excellent anticancer effects, are well absorbed, boost immunity, reduce inflammation and are much more powerful as antioxidants.

The same can be said for beta-carotene. Synthetic beta-carotene is not only less active, but it can inhibit other vital anti-cancer nutrients. The synthetic form was used in the widely reported study showing increased cancer rates in smokers who took the supplement. A number of experiments using natural forms of beta-carotene (which naturally contains over a dozen forms) uncovered profound cancer inhibition. Like synthetic vitamin E, synthetic beta-carotene depletes the more active forms of the carotenoids, such as alpha-carotene and lutein.

The form and quality of the vitamins make all the difference. When buying beta-carotene, select the natural form, which contains mixed carotenoids. It is usually extracted from an algae called Dunaliella salina.

You should know that some carotenoids are more important than others in preventing specific cancers. For example, alpha-carotene is key to preventing breast and lung cancers, while beta-cryptoxanthin, lutein and lycopene are more important in stopping prostate and ovarian cancers, and astaxanthin has been found to forcefully inhibit bladder cancer.

Multivitamin/mineral combinations should be taken in vegetarian capsules in dry powder form, as they are much better absorbed this way. Hard vitamin tablets are difficult to dissolve and absorb, especially in cancer patients experiencing gastrointestinal complications.

I would also avoid vitamin chelates (combined with excitotoxic amino acids) and any vitamin or oil in a gelatin capsule. Gelatin is high in fluoride and glutamate and poses a high risk for mad cow disease. Herbs should be of the highest quality and must carry the label: "Guaranteed Potency Herb". This confirms that the active ingredient is present in standardized amounts. Finally, some flavonoids and other nutrients are oil-soluble, so if you take them as a dry powder they will be poorly absorbed.

What Your Oncologist Won't Tell You...

Most cancer patients trust their oncologist out of either blind faith or a fear of abandonment. Yet there is mounting evidence that the conventional treatments your doctor is recommending might actually make cancers grow faster and become incurable when used alone.

Cancer survival statistics are never based on a comparison of nutritional and conventional treatments, but rather on the correlation between various conventional treatments and protocols. By manipulating these statistics, oncologists and drug companies can give the impression that they are significantly extending life for the cancer patient, when in fact it is all smoke and mirrors. For the major cancers, there has been no improvement in long-term survival using conventional treatments. Granted, with a number of the less common cancers, one does often see dramatic progress.

The Big Secret

So here it is: The most closely guarded secret that oncologists and especially pharmaceutical companies keep is that most conventional cancer treatments actually cause cancer themselves and leave survivors at risk of developing totally different secondary and even tertiary cancers. By damaging the DNA of normal cells, radiation and chemotherapy drugs heighten the risk that those cells will become cancerous at some point in the future.

It has been documented that anywhere from 5 to 17% of patients who undergo conventional treatments will develop a new cancer. For example, some breast cancer survivors will develop leukemia.

This is precisely why using nutrition to your advantage is so important. It allows you to protect normal cells from the inevitable DNA damage that cancer treatment will bring. Because the physiology of cancer cells differs from that of normal ones, select nutrients actually prime cancer cells to become more vulnerable to conventional treatments.

In fact, without the benefit of proper nutrition, one of the biggest problems associated with chemotherapy is multi-drug resistance. In such cases, the cancer cells suddenly become resistant not only to the chemotherapy drug in current use, but to all others as well. When that happens, the cancer spreads like wildfire and becomes incurable. A growing number of studies are showing that select nutrients - especially flavonoids like quercetin and curcumin - can reverse this action, once again making the cancer cells susceptible to the cancer-killing drugs. Clearly, Detoxification Is Key

Most cancer-causing chemicals do their damage by affecting detoxification, the process by which toxins are neutralized. While the liver is the key organ in flushing toxins, all cells - even brain cells - contain detoxification systems whose effectiveness greatly depends on nutrition. Many studies have shown that people with defective detoxification have high rates of disease, including cancer.

Cancer patients undergoing conventional treatments are especially reliant on detoxification for survival. This is because as the chemotherapy and radiation treatments kill large numbers of cancer cells, toxic debris is released, flooding the body and poisoning other cells and organs. That is why cancer treatments often result in extreme fatigue, foggy thinking, nausea, vomiting and eventual collapse. I have treated many cancer patients with nutritional programs and found, as have others, that these symptoms either dramatically decrease or stop altogether. Patients have more energy, they feel good and they're clear-headed.

Boosting Immunity Is the Key to Stopping Cancer

Doctors have long known that the key to cancer control is immunity. In fact, hundreds of studies have demonstrated that people with poor immunity are not only more likely to die from their cancer - they're significantly more apt to develop it in the first place. This might explain why transplant patients (who require immune suppression) and those with diabetes are much more prone to cancers.

But while the immune system is extremely complex, comprised of many parts and different types of cells, controlling cancer is not just a matter of stimulating immunity. In fact, in some instances doing so makes the cancer grow faster.

It is the component known as cellular immunity that actually combats cancer. While humoral immunity (antibody production) can protect cancer cells against attack by immune cells, there is growing evidence that special proteolytic enzymes can clear away these harmful immune antibodies, leaving cancer cells more susceptible to aggression. Some of these enzymes can be purchased without prescription. Wobenzyme is a brand that has proved effective. It is taken on an empty stomach, three times a day. If you have stomach ulcers or chronic gastritis, you should check with your doctor, as these enzymes can worsen these conditions. In conjunction with enzyme therapy, you should stimulate your cellular immunity (T-cells and natural killer - NK - cells). As outlined in part one of this newsletter (Prevent Cancer Before It's Too Late - Part One) www.newsmaxstore.com/ newsletters/blaylock/8.cfm), you can obtain several products that successfully induce the immune system to battle various types of cancers.

Nutrients That Improve Detoxification
* Curcumin
* Quercetin
* Silymarin (milk thistle extract)
* DHA
* Taurine
* Indole-3 carbinol
* MSM and glutathione
* Mixed carotenoids (canthaxanthin, astaxanthin)

Soy Dangers

Recently I came across one of the most comprehensive books ever written on the true nature of soy and the dangers associated with its products. The Whole Soy Story by Kaayla T. Daniel, contains a detailed history of global soy use, how Asian soy foods differ from Western products as well as all pertinent research on the known dangers of soy consumption. For example, did you know that at least 75% of all soybeans in this country are genetically modified? Recent research has shown that genistein (the isoflavone component of soy) actually augments the growth of breast cancers (and this applies other hormonone-related cancers, including prostate, cervical, ovarian, uterine, and others) - as opposed to inhibiting them, as was previously thought. In addition, there is persuasive evidence that elevated soy intake might increase the risk of pancreatic cancer.

And soy has soaring levels of the excitotoxin glutamate, fluoride and manganese (which can impair the developing brain and lead to Parkinson's in adults). Of special interest is a 25-year Hawaiian study in which a group of people who ate soy products was compared to matching controls. The experiment found that the more soy that was consumed, the greater the brain atrophy - and hence dementia.

A new study found that almost half of women who'd had a mastectomy as a result of breast cancer still had live breast cancer cells circulating inside them 7 to 22 years after recovery. While the subjects showed no evidence of clinical disease, the cancerous cells could become active at any time - even decades later. This is why continued healthy nutritional practices are key to keeping dormant cells in check.

I would also see Ingrid Naiman's book, Cancer Salves: A Botanical Approach to Treatment ( http://www.amazon.com/Cancer-Salves-Botanical-Approach-Treatment/dp/1882834151), which shows describes many cures of breast, skin, pancreatic, liver, bladder and skin cancers by the use of cancer salves.

Ellagic Insurance Formula (EIF), a very powerful cancer inhibitor (I started at 6/d and increased up to 18/d, staying at current dose or stopping for 2-7 days while detoxing if too much fluid accumulation in lungs from dying tumors before resuming at dosage left off -- J D Dennison, 866-294-1119, www.hopeforcancer.com EIF contains some enzymes, ellagic acid/pomegranate extract, Graviola, and selenium and are convenient to take, but you could buy and take all of the individual items it contains). You can still use it even if cancer has spread to the brain. For lung or brain cancers, start at 3/d for a week, then increase to 6/d for a week, then 9/d for another week, then 12/d until cancer is gone, at which point continue at half that (6/d) indefinitely to help keep cancer from coming back. (For other types of cancer, the duration at each dose is 3 days for other types of cancer that don't have fluid buildup problems; for lung or brain cancers, you take twice as long between each dosage increase: a week instead of 3 days.) If there are signs of fluid build up in lungs such as trouble breathing (or brain, if you have brain tumors, such as trouble breathing or headaches), decrease dosage for a few days before beginning to increase dosage again. For example, if you are taking 9/d and get fluid buildup, you would drop down to 3/d for a few days, then increase to 6/d for a week, etc. JD can help, if you call him. The dosage is tied to your weight and type of cancer. Typically, the dosage is about 10% of the weight for most cancers; what varies is how fast you get there. For cancer in the lungs and brain, you would increase from one dose to another after a week, instead of the typical 3 days. The maximum dosage is 12/d for 111 lbs, 18/d for 200 lbs, 21/d for 240 lbs or more.

Note that carb Metabolic Types should get their carbs from vegetables, not starches. eliminate omega-6 oils (vegetable, canola, sunflower, safflower, soybean, corn, etc.)

Taking these supplements in the correct dosages, as well as eating the green drinks (or blenderized vegetables), along with lots of specific fats (Swanson DHA oil from Calamari, EV coconut oil, cold-pressed EV olive oil) and lots of protein (somewhat less protein if kidneys are bad) with NO carbs are important parts of the protocol. If you are stage 4 and have lost a lot of weight and strength, this will also help you to gain enough weight to undergo ozone and cesium therapy.

Note: all of these protein sources need to be taken with extra enzymes, since cooking destroys their enzymes, and the enzymes taken between meals are needed to attack the cancer and we don't want to use them up digesting food. Lightly-cooked (in olive oil without smoking the oil or browning the meat -- or baked) free-range, organic chicken/turkey; line/wild-caught salmon or sardines; Christopher's brand free range organic high omega-3 eggs (660mg omega-3 per egg) available in many grocery stores (hard boiled or poached with butter and Morton Lite salt and enzymes); goat or sheep cheese in moderation (take with enzymes -- any protein source that isn't raw needs to be taken with extra enzymes, in addition to those in EIF);

Avoid red meat (lamb, pork, veal, beef -- even organic free-range) because it's high in arachidonic acid and iron, which feed cancer. Eliminate omega-6 oils (vegetable, canola, sunflower, safflower, soybean, corn, etc.); they are converted to arachidonic acid by your body and are pro-inflammatories that accelerate cancer. (Note: you actually need a small amount of pure omega-6 oils which you will get on this protocol from your GLA and olive oil, which contains mostly health-promoting omega-9 mono-unsaturated fat).

VitaMix Blenderized Vegetables
To juice vegetables, add 1c water and 1/2c EV olive oil per blender full and blend on low speed (variable speed VitaMix blender) until pieces are about 1/16" in size -- but not until it's a mush, or all the enzymes will have been destroyed! (Most juicers discard the most important parts of fruit and vegetables, the skin, seeds and fiber. The VitaMix 5000/5100 series are variable speed blenders that preserve the fiber and enzymes (if used on slow speed and for not too long).
---

A major part of this protocol is a perfect, raw food diet without ANY sugars or carbohydrates, such as bread, pasta, macaroni, rice, beans, grains, and without processed foods (anything made in a factory that has an "ingredients" list). A 5% bad diet causes a 400% increase in cancer. The thing that I don't think many of you understand is that even if you somehow beat cancer, you still need to strictly adhere to an almost perfect diet FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE or the cancer will come back, so if you cannot do that now, while you're staring death in the eye, you should consider not ruining your doctor's reputation and getting him in trouble by dying and blaming him for it not working when really you will not have done your part. You can't wait until you get to the clinic to have ozone and cesium therapy to follow the diet -- you need to do it NOW, and to stop helping the cancer grow and spread.

The way that this diet works is by denying cancer ALL of its carbs and sugars -- not some! That, by the way, is why many people don't think that you can affect disease by diet; it needs to be VERY strict and well-designed in order to therapeutically affect disease outcome. See http://www.drday.com/tumor.htm about how Dr. Lorraine Day healed herself of terminal cancer by diet, if you don't think it's important to follow a very strict diet. Cancer clinics put you on a 100% raw food diet for 21 days when you get there, and you will need to stay on it 100% until the active cancer is gone. Once you no longer have active cancer, you'll probably be able to eat a few organic, lightly cooked things along with MOSTLY raw, organic food, take your supplements, and not smoke or drink, etc., and in order to not get the cancer back, but right now, you need to be on a perfect diet, not giving the cancer ANY carbs or sugar with which to spread; that's why naturopathic doctors ask often about what you're eating, they want to make sure that you're totally committed to getting better. They don't want to treat someone who isn't (they've got too much "heat" on them already to take on any patient who isn't going put 100% into getting better).

Metabolic Typing
See my metabolic typing pages for quick self-tests to determine your metabolic type. Dr. Kelley cured himself of pancreatic cancer, which to this day is still incurable by conventional medicine, by eating an almost totally vegetarian diet, along with spiritual elements and supplements. When his wife became very ill, he tried the same diet on her and she became much sicker and almost died until he tried a last-ditch effort of giving her a lot of meat. She quickly recovered. Dr. Kelley spent many years investigating various metabolic types of people and what types of foods and supplements would keep each type in optimum health. You might have heard that everyone needs to alkalinize their bodies to recover from cancer by eating certain "alkaline" foods. Some types, such as parasympathetic dominant people, are actually too alkaline and need to be acidified!

I wouldn't eat in a restaurant at all; I'd be doing everything possible to enhance my chances of beating it, and slowing it down until I could find a way to decrease it -- I definitely wouldn't be feeding cancer starches, sugars, bad fats, additives, processed-, fast- or restaurant-food!

You must TOTALLY COMMIT to getting better, and understand the importance of not helping the cancer get ANY worse!

Supplements: Six of One, Half a Dozen of the Other?
By Dr. Blaylock

One of the most common mistakes people make is to buy the cheapest supplements they can find, because they assume they're all the same. Most wouldn't even purchase toilet paper this way. Yet the public is not alone in this belief. Too many research studies on vitamin supplements and cancer prevention use vitamin samples that have no anti-cancer activity or are known to be of inferior quality.

Take vitamin E for example. Manufactured forms - called DL-alpha-tocopherols and d-alpha-tocopherol acetate - have little anti-cancer activity and are both distributed and absorbed poorly in the body. And in high doses it interferes with carotenoid absorption. Yet these are the most common forms sold and used in experiments - especially in human testing.

A number of studies have demonstrated that natural forms of vitamins E (containing d-alpha-tocopherol and three other forms of vitamin E) and d-alpha-tocopheryl succinate have excellent anticancer effects, are well absorbed, boost immunity, reduce inflammation and are much more powerful as antioxidants.

The same can be said for beta-carotene. Synthetic beta-carotene is not only less active, but it can inhibit other vital anti-cancer nutrients. The synthetic form was used in the widely reported study showing increased cancer rates in smokers who took the supplement. A number of experiments using natural forms of beta-carotene (which naturally contains over a dozen forms) uncovered profound cancer inhibition. Like synthetic vitamin E, synthetic beta-carotene depletes the more active forms of the carotenoids, such as alpha-carotene and lutein. The form and quality of the vitamins make all the difference. When buying beta-carotene, select the natural form, which contains mixed carotenoids. It is usually extracted from an algae called Dunaliella salina.

You should know that some carotenoids are more important than others in preventing specific cancers. For example, alpha-carotene is key to preventing breast and lung cancers, while beta-cryptoxanthin, lutein and lycopene are more important in stopping prostate and ovarian cancers, and astaxanthin has been found to forcefully inhibit bladder cancer.

Multivitamin/mineral combinations should be taken in vegetarian capsules in dry powder form, as they are much better absorbed this way. Hard vitamin tablets are difficult to dissolve and absorb, especially in cancer patients experiencing gastrointestinal complications.

I would also avoid vitamin chelates (combined with excitotoxic amino acids) and any vitamin or oil in a gelatin capsule. Gelatin is high in fluoride and glutamate and poses a high risk for mad cow disease. Herbs should be of the highest quality and must carry the label: "Guaranteed Potency Herb". This confirms that the active ingredient is present in standardized amounts. Finally, some flavonoids and other nutrients are oil-soluble, so if you take them as a dry powder they will be poorly absorbed.

Juiced fruit is much worse than whole fruit for anyone -- especially cancer patients or diabetics -- than plain, whole fruit, and whole fruit is discouraged for patients with active cancer; on this website, I talk about how sugar-free berry extracts should be used instead. Two 8 ounce glasses/day of specific (see main cancer protocol page and raw food page) lightly-blended organic vegetables in a variable-speed Vitamix blender (blended at low speed so that they're somewhat chunky still) are essential; some people have beaten cancer just on that alone. Once or twice a week, we also have a salad with EV cold-pressed olive oil + wine vinegar + spices (garlic, onion, parsley, etc.)

My family and I also have a little Emperor's Forbidden black rice (whole grain) with dark colored, sugar-free (no fructose, msg, etc.) black/kidney/red/pinto (dark-colored) beans, onions, peas, lima beans, etc., free range organic chicken, line caught wild ocean fish that are baked or lightly cooked at very low heat (smoking oil and browned food causes more cancer) in EV olive oil (with some curcumin added to reduce oxidation), a couple hard-boiled organic eggs (Christopher's Brand 660mg omega-3 per egg free range organic eggs) each week or two, a slice of sprouted grain bread each day with grass-fed butter, some goat or sheep cheese (with garlic/onion powder and cayenne pepper sprinkled on for anti-cancer benefits). It's extremely important that you understand that diet and lifestyle changes are crucial to beating cancer.

I also have sauerkraut (with no added msg or sugar) as a source of additional vitamin K2 and healthy bacteria (which boosts the immune system and helps digestion). I eat it with ground ginger, cayenne, onion and garlic powder + some chopped onion in it every day).

See Chapter 3 in Dr. Blaylock's book, "Natural Strategies for Cancer Patients" (http://www.amazon.com/Natural-Strategies-Patients-Russell-Blaylock/dp/0758202210/) about much other useful information about hair loss, avoiding heart damage, pulmonary, neurological & gastrointestinal complications, liver and kidney injury, etc. from chemotherapy.

Healthy Oils: I use Swanson EFAs Super DHA 500 from Calamari oil; cold-pressed, extra-virgin olive oil; freshly-ground organic flaxseed (from www.flaxseedpro.com that I grind in a coffee grinder from the same place); Evening Primrose Oil; raw almonds (Note: this was before the Almond Board of California and the USDA decided to pasteurize almonds with heat, radiation and highly carcinogenic chemicals that are banned in the rest of the world, and still allow them to labeled "raw": http://www.newstarget.com/021989.html), so it's probably better to eat other nuts and seeds that you are sure are raw (but keep in mind that cashews and peanuts almost always have aflatoxin mold spores on them); raw pumpkin seeds; extra virgin organic cold-pressed olive oil; and some extra virgin organic coconut oil (1 tablespoon/day). Note: keep all oils in refrigerator, and add ground rosemary, lemon juice and some good quality, full-spectrum vitamin E to keep it from oxidizing, once opened. These oils normalize your omega-3/omega-6 ratio and fight cancer. Note that it's not enough to simply increase the omega-3 oils to make the omega-6 to omega-3 ratio more healthful (most people's ratio is about 40:1; it should be 2:1 or 1:1) -- Eliminate omega-6 oils (vegetable, canola, sunflower, safflower, soybean, corn, etc.); they are converted to arachidonic acid by your body and are pro-inflammatories that accelerate cancer. (Note: you actually need a small amount of pure omega-6 oils which you will get on this protocol from your GLA and olive oil, which contains mostly health-promoting omega-9 mono-unsaturated fat).

Steel cut organic oats - you can soak them in pure water in the refrigerator overnight to reduce cooking time. I have these with a little Stevia on them in the mornings. Baked cereals, starches, french fries, chips, etc. are high in cancer-causing acrylamides. I add 2 tablespoonfuls of freshly-ground organic flax seed to my oats, along with some extra water (which I stir in and make sure it covers the ground flaxseed so it will prevent oxidation), because the flaxseed absorbs quite a bit within a couple minutes. I usually let it sit about 3-5 minutes before eating to give the flaxseeds a chance to thicken. Note: flaxseed needs to be ground fresh each time, since it starts going rancid within a half hour. If you can't get steel cut, then rolled organic oats are the next best thing. Stay away from instant oatmeal, and those other types with added sugar, hydrogenated fat, artificial flavors/colors/preservatives.

Sadly, most people finally realize that they've been tricked by the government, medical establishment and media into believing that chemo and radiation actually work for most cancers, and that "alternative" methods don't work until it's too late and they're at death's doorstep and it's too late to help them. The sad thing is that many of these people did not need to die, but did so because their minds -- their belief systems -- wouldn't let them see that they were being lied to. Being afraid of dying is NOT the same as really wanting to live, loving life and being willing to do whatever it takes to go on living. (See the book "Questioning Chemotherapy" by Ralph Moss about how chemo and rad help in less than 2% of all cancers -- and more than half of the few "cures" get secondary cancers caused by the treatment). According to Dr. Blaylock, "It's important to remember that secondary cancers are not recurrences of a previous cancer but entirely new cancers caused by the treatment. Most often, the secondary cancer is much more resistant to treatment than was the original cancer. Biopsies (including needle biopsies) also spread cancer in more than half of the cases."

Cancer is a cry from the body to stop poisoning it with toxins, a bad lifestyle, etc. -- so what do most do? They go into denial, and poison it more with more Rx's, booze, bad diet (it doesn't help that most of what dietitians tell patients is totally wrong, either), and continue their bad lifestyle -- all things that led to them getting cancer in the first place. Over 80% of genetically-determined illness can be activated or deactivated by a person's diet or lifestyle (epigenomes turn on or off genetic tendencies -- search for "Epigenetics: How Your Mind (also diet, lifestyle, spirituality, attitude, determination to live and not accepting illness) Can Reprogram Your Genes" without the quotes elsewhere on this page, and also for "Imagery/Visualization: HowTo", which is immediately above the information on Epigenetics).

There's precious little time to convince yourself that there are solutions with a much better chance that often work, but you needs to commit yourself to taking your supplements and herbs regularly (and not just a few -- you need a more comprehensive protocol), along with a perfect diet (lots of organic, raw vegetables lightly blended in a variable-speed Vitamix blender, no white starches, sugars, msg, artificial sweeteners, harmful cosmetics/cleaners, restaurant or factory-processed foods, alcohol, etc.) and lifestyle. Also, you need to address the spiritual aspects of being healthy and use imagery (detailed on my main cancer protocol page) to help heal yourself, and give up destructive beliefs/attitudes/habits that are killing you quicker.

It's important to open your mind up to other solutions and undo all the brainwashing from years of staring at the blinking box of government and medical establishment propaganda (the TV), as well as the majority of newspapers, magazines, journals (i.e., the biased ones with an agenda) etc.

An important part of beating cancer is to make yourself believe that it is possible to beat this thing, but it is going to be the hardest thing you've ever done in your life, and you really need to want it, believe in it with your whole heart, and totally commit to doing what is required to beat it, including following the protocol, dietary and lifestyle recommendations religiously. Lack of compliance (going off the protocol, diet and lifestyle) is the main reason that more people don't beat cancer and other diseases (besides waiting until it's too late).

Going to St. Kitt's is an option, especially if you find it hard to break out of a rut and radically change your diet and lefestyle on your own, or if you need help with cesium and / or ozone therapy, etc. (you'd still need to accurately follow a healthy diet, lifestyle and supplement protocol.)

For Clots:

When I am having a TIA ischemic Stroke or Heart Attack caused by clots/blockage (not bleeding/hemorrhagic/burst blood vessel), instead of Warfarin, Coumadin or other "blood thinners", I take:

  • Alpha Lipoic Acid 100mg -- 2
  • Magnesium Citrate 500mg -- 1
  • Nattokinase 65mg -- 2
  • For prevention, each day I take:
  • Fish oil (molecularly-distilled) -- Swanson EFAs Super DHA 500 from Calamari, 1 capsule three times a day

---

Some additional food and supplements I used for cancer were the following (Note: see link to Jerry Brunetti's protocol on this page and the information on my other cancer protocol pages, in addition to the information on this page. Most of the info on the various cancer pages is applicable to all cancers, human and animal):

re Boron & Calcium: I would be careful not to take too much boron (I take 1mg/d from supplements) because it can increase estradiol, the bad estrogen. Also, I would be careful not to take too much extra calcium (I would take 500mg/d for sympathetic dominants/slow oxidizer/Group I, and 750mg/d for parasympathetics/fast oxidizer/Group II -- see Metabolic Typing pages); Dr. Blaylock says it's better to get as much of your calcium as you can by eating lots of greens (and supplementing the shortfall), along with adequate vitamin D3 and vitamin K2 so that the calcium gets deposited in our bones, not our soft tissues and arteries.

Ginkgo Biloba extract, [160-320mg/d during and until 3 wks after chemo ends; 2/d (120-160mg/d) afterwards or if you've not taken chemo] -- protects nerves & brain from chemo (ginkgo biloba -- Swanson SW893, qty240, 60mg, 24% glycosides and 6% terpene lactones, $6.99)

Zinc Citrate, Nutricology, 25mg, $3.69, qty60caps -- no DCP or stearates) -- (http://www.betterlife.com/prod_home_page.asp?prod_id=8939), reduces absorption of excess copper that can cause angiogenesis, (including the amount in your multivitamin, Blaylock recommends 30mg/d, no more than 1 mg/d copper from supplements)

Flaxseed (organic golden), 2-3TBS/d, http://www.vitacost.com/Arrowhead-Mills-Organic-Golden-Flax-Seeds [AW 476856, Arrowhead Mills Organic Golden Flax Seeds, 14 Ounces, $1.95*16/14 = 2.23/lb] I use a little Proctor-Silex Coffee Grinder for it.

Borage oil (GLA), http://www.vitacost.com/NSI-BioAsteri-Borage-Oil-1-300-mg-240-softgels, ($27.99, qty240, 1300mg: 480mg GLA) or http://www.vitacost.com/NSI-Evening-Primrose-Oil, ($.569/g GLA; $19.99, qty300, 1300mg: 117mgGLA). Dr. Blaylock advises at least 1000mg of GLA/day. (I take 2 EPO + 3 Borage per day, and keep open bottles of oil in refrigerator to minimize oxidation. Also, I mix powdered Rosemary, some lemon juice and squeeze a capsule of oil-soluble Vitamin E into open bottles of olive oil) Reduces Inflammation.

Cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil (I take about 3-4 TBS/d mixed in my food and Vitamixed vegetable drink)

Note: avoid sunflower seeds/oil, canola, safflower, soybean, corn oil, etc. -- they're omega-6 oil.

Besides EV coconut oil, extra virgin olive oil fights cancer. No glutamic acid, methionine, glutamate/MSG/Kimchi with MSG, cow milk/cheese (see Blaylock's cancer reports). Goat's or sheep's milk or cheese is better.

Garlic/Onion powder mixture, 0.5tsp AM, 0.5tsp PM (buy large bottles Sam's Club or elsewhere, plus eat fresh) -- I mix equal parts of these (NOT onion Salt or Garlic Salt) and add them to green drinks

Essiac Tea (organic non-irradiated), regular tea from these sites are probably a lot better than capsules, since many Esiak/Essiac herbs are now being irradiated and are not organic: http://www.healthfreedom.info/Cancer%20Essiac.htm, http://www.ojibwatea.com/essiac_quality.htm Essiac tea (Rene Caisse's later 8 herb formula -- powdered 8 herb formula used late in Rene's life -- better). To order, go to www.vitacost.com and search for "Flor Essence" (without quotes; iherb costs a lot more), ($46.37/1lb, 7 month money-back lowest-price guarantee, organic non-irradiated. http://www.discount-essiac-tea.com/how-to-brew-essiac.html, (mfr's info: http://www.florahealth.com/Flora/Home/canada/Products/R8070.asp) Warnings: This product contains Turkish rhubarb root. Read and follow directions carefully. Do not use if you have or develop diarrhea, loose stools, or abdominal pain because rhubarb may worsen these conditions and be harmful to your health. Consult your physician if you have frequent diarrhea or if you are pregnant, nursing, taking medications, or have a medical condition. You could take some of the capsules and pills with your teas. Essiac Tea (organic non-irradiated), regular tea from these sites are probably a lot better than capsules, since many Esiak/Essiac herbs are now being irradiated and are not organic: http://www.healthfreedom.info/Cancer%20Essiac.htm, http://www.ojibwatea.com/essiac_quality.htm

Optional: Sir Jason Winter's tea (note: I added Chapparal to it, since the tea that Sir Jason healed himself and others of cancer with contained it, but the FDA has made him remove it from tea sold in the US. See article on www.jonbarron.org about Chaparral and other "blood purifiers" (code for cancer-fighting herbs).

Chromium polynicotinate (NSI) is preferable to picolinate (which has been shown to cause cancer in vitro) - http://www.vitacost.com/NSI-Chromium-GTF-ChromeMate-200-mcg, (qty300, 200mcg chromium polynicotinate -- best form that is bound with niacin, $9.99) 1/d, (Jarrow Multi Easy has 120mcg)

Pomegranate extract (ellagic acid), 27/d -- causes apoptosis (cancer cells to die), http://www.vitacost.com/NSI-PomActiv-Pomegranate-Extract 250mg, (250mg 70%, qty300, $19.99).

Cayenne or Red Pepper flakes and hot peppers - I used these liberally on my food at almost every meal. Besides being a good expectorant for lung problems, they cause apoptosis (programmed cell death of all types of cancer cells). Note: do not use black pepper; it is not a true pepper, and is thought to contribute to cancer. (See Dr. Rowen's article below entitled: "The Only Safe Way to Burn Cancer Out of Your Body".

Lots of Fresh Garlic, Onion and Ginger root (or powder): you can add this to your Vitamix blend of vegetables, if you prefer.

Ground cinnamon - lowers blood sugar. I also used gymnema sylvestre and yeast-based chromium to lower my blood sugar and keep from feeding the cancer. Also good are bitter melon and corosolic acid (from banaba or crepe myrtle).

Cinnulin (water-soluble cinnamon extract; Dr. David Williams says that regular Cassia contains coumarin in its oils that can damage kidneys and liver over time), 4/d with meals, http://www.vitabase.com/supplements/split/diabetes/cinnamon.aspx ($12.96, 250mg, qty60, Cinnulin-PF, Free S+H >$50, otherwise $4.95 -- I take for help with cholesterol/triglycerides and blood sugar/insulin resistance)

Potassium salt (Morton potassium and sodium chloride) - I use this instead of regular salt on my food.

Some additional Immune Boosters (these work synergistically together to powerfully stimulate the Natural Killer and T-Cells of the immune system):

Aloe Vera capsules: I also took 2-4 capsules of these along with the other Immune Boosters to be sure I was getting the powerful long-chain polysaccharides: http://www.vitacost.com/New-Chapter-Aloe-Vera-200 [CH 005106, New Chapter, $17.97, 60 Tablets, 300mg Organic freeze-dried Aloe Vera juice concentrate (leaf)(200:1)(equal to 2 oz. [60 grams] of fresh aloe vera juice)(min. 32% total polysaccharides - 96 mg, 45% short-chain polysaccharides - 43 mg, and 55% long-chain polysaccharides - 53 mg)] because it contains a lot of long-chain polysaccharides and none of the outer leaf sap (which causes diarrhea).

PeakImmune4 250mg (immune booster), http://www.netnutri.com/browse.cfm/4.2460.htm (PeakImmune4, qty50, 250mg, $38.99),[formerly "MGN3", now called Peak Immune or BRM4] Boosts NK cells 3 times (rice bran arabinoxylan from fermenting with only the enzymes from shiitake to break down the rice bran hemicellulose; can be used by people with mushroom sensitivities: no mushroom remains in final product.) (Recommended loading dose: 12/d (250mg) (4,4,4) for 4wks to start, then 4/d maintenance) www.biobran.org/research [BRM4=MGN3] See http://www.biobran.org/comparison/ahcc.html for AHCC MGN-3 comparison (but I take both to be safe). [Fermentation or taking large dosages of Vitamin C taken with Reishi, etc. make it more effective against cancer by breaking the large molecules down so that they are better absorbed - Beating Cancer with Natural Medicine, a PDF by Dr. Lam]

ProBoost Thymic Protein A (helps Thymus boost immune system) -- Complementary Prescriptions aka Vitamin Research Products (Proboost Thymic Protein A, 30pkts, CP9122); http://www.betterlife.com/prod_home_page.asp?prod_id=7468 (30pkts, $42.95)

Proboost Thymic Protein A, 30pkts, CP9122) or http://www.vrp.com/det/9122.asp [The thymus is a small gland located behind the upper chest area, which plays a key role in proper immune functioning. This gland peaks in size at puberty, and then begins steady involution (shrinkage), until eventually it becomes incapable of producing certain proteins the immune system needs. All white blood cells (WBC's) originate in the bone marrow. Some cells which can mature upon their release from the marrow are termed B-cells ("B" for bone). Other WBC's are still immature when released from the marrow, and must travel to the thymus to receive proteins for activation. These cells are termed T-cells ("T" for thymus gland). The T-4 Helper cell is the "manager " of the immune system. It is one kind of white blood cell that needs a thymic protein to be activated. Without a specific protein (protein A), the T-4 cell cannot function, and immune activity suffers. ProBoost Thymic Protein A supplies the missing thymic protein and activates the T-4 Helper cell. Each packet contains 4 micrograms (12 trillion active molecules) of freeze-dried, purified Thymic Protein A from calf thymus cell culture in a base of maltodextrin.] [LEF has Thymic Immune Factors (Bovine Thymus, Lymph and Spleen) $13.50/100 caps (2/d). Also, regarding ProBoost Thymic Protein A, Jerry Brunetti mentions that he used 1 packet/day or 1 ev other day for healthy people; more if sick.]

Modified Citrus Pectin (MCP) locks-up cancer cells that are trying to spread (www.iherb.com, or do an internet search for price comparison.)

MCP just happens to be rich in the same sugar molecule (galactose) that the proteins on cancer cells (lectins) attach to. Once the cancer cells are "locked on" to the MCP molecules, they lose their ability to clump or penetrate normal cells. They then circulate in the system until they either die or are destroyed by the immune system. And, by "locking up" or neutralizing these cancer cells, MCP also helps lighten the load of the body's immune system.
In one of the earliest studies, researchers compared MCP to regular citrus pectin and examined their respective effects on lung tumors in mice. The MCP-injected mice had a significant reduction in lung tumor formation, while those given regular pectin had a significant increase. (J Natl Cancer Inst 92;84:438--442)
Galectins (the type of cancer cell lectins that attach to the sugar galactose) are found on cancer cells of the prostate, breast, colon, and larynx, and on lymphomas, melanomas, and glioblastomas. By binding to the galectins of these various cancer cells, MCP can help inhibit the cancer from growing and developing into the more advanced stages-as well as help prevent it from metastasizing.
In practically all of the cancer studies, a dosage of 15 grams a day was used (5 grams taken three times during the day). This dosage for cancer is generally used as long as the cancer is active or present; a year is not unreasonable. After that period, a generally recommended maintenance dose is usually 3 to 5 grams daily. Again, it's totally safe. There are no serious side effects, but it's possible that some people might initially experience a little intestinal gas or mild stomach discomfort. This is temporary and not uncommon when increasing the amount of any type of fiber in the diet.
The studies I outlined above utilized a product called PectaSol, which is marketed in this country by EcoNugenics. You can contact them at www.econugenics.com/MCP, or call them at 800-521-0160. This is the only MCP product I feel comfortable recommending. There's no other product of this caliber on the market, and it has decades of research and use to support its claims of effectiveness.
EcoNugenics has been on the cutting edge of MCP since the beginning. Through a complicated, proprietary process they've been able to reduce the size (molecular weight) of the pectin components (called "PectaSol-C")-improving their absorbability and, hence, their effectiveness.
If you'd like even more of the details of those studies, you can get an in-depth report from the maker of PectaSol-C. It's available as a free downloadable file on their Web site, at www.econugenics.com/MCPreport, http://www.econugenics.com/products/datasheets/datasheet_6001A.pdf, http://www.econugenics.com/offer/page/mcp

CMW is minimally processed to preserve its original composition. There is rBGH (Bovine Growth Hormone), high levels of IGF-1 (insulin like growth factor), etc. in Cow's whey and milk products that cause cancer to grow faster: Goat Whey is better.

You need to gradually increase the amount you're taking, (and stop increasing for a while if you have lung cancer and are suddenly experiencing difficulty breathing from fluid buildup (or increased intra-cranial pressure for brain cancer) so that the toxins released from killing cancer won't overwhelm your body's ability to get rid of them. Anonna montana is a much more effective form of Graviola that the natives use instead of the original (Annona muricata) species of Graviola (Annona muricata). [Mountain Graviola is a new species of the genus Anonna, the active compounds of which are called acetogenins -and Taylor discovered it herself during a visit to her South American harvesting site. Though strikingly similar in appearance to the original species of Graviola (also known as Annona muricata), she noticed that natives never ate the fruit of this new tree-while the fruit, stems, and leaves of its close relative were regularly consumed by local tribes for medicinal purposes. After questioning them as to the reason, she was told that, unlike Graviola, the fruit from the Mountain Graviola tree (or Annona montana) was far too sour to be edible. But a closer look at the plant's structure revealed that this substitution had been coming at a price. Although the sweeter Graviola does in fact deliver potent curative properties, the less-palatable Mountain Graviola has nearly 26 novel acetogenins that you won't find in its relative-and even more of the acetogenin annonacin, which has been the focus of most of the published studies on account of its demonstrated cancer-fighting abilities and lack of toxicity.]

Keep in mind that we're all individuals (one size does NOT fit all) and what is good for one is not necessarily good for another. For example, low-fat diets harm -- and can even kill -- 45% of the population. Some excellent books are Natural Strategies for Cancer Patients by Russell L. Blaylock, M.D. (http://www.amazon.com/Natural-Strategies-Patients-Russell-Blaylock/dp/0758202210 and http://web.mac.com/rblaylock/iWeb/Russell%20Blaylock%20M.D./Books.html) and Medicinal Mushrooms by Georges M Halpern (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0871319810/). Dr. Blaylock's special reports/newsletters are also very helpful: www.NewsMax.com/BlaylockReports and http://www.russellblaylockmd.com/)

Optional if you typically have heartburn after meals (esp. meat-containing ones): Betaine Hydrochloride With Pepsin (if needed to increase stomach acidity -- Note: the purpose of this is not to acidify your entire body but to help you digest your food), I take 1/d in AM (or cider vinegar 2tsp in water just before or along with meal), www.iherb.com, SNS-01362, Betaine HCI (Hydrochloride) with Pepsin, Source Naturals, 650 mg + 165mg 1:3000 Pepsin, 180 Tablets $10.39 [take with meals, in between food (not on an empty stomach). I only take one with breakfast, but some people may need to take with supper, too. If you get heartburn afterwards, then take an antacid and stop taking the Betaine at that particular mealtime. You can get heartburn from too much acid, but most people have indigestion from too little acid which they mistake for heartburn. True heartburn from too much acidity is relieved by taking a Tums, but someone who pops Tums all day typically has too little acid.]

With meals: [Optional: Beta Plus, http://store.yahoo.com/spinelife/betaplus180t.html; Actizyme, http://www.betterlife.com/prod_home_page.asp?prod_id=5861 (180qty $20.49)].

I use 2 drops in the morning (in my green drink) and 1 drop at night. Kelp is way too weak, especially when you're eating large quantities of cruciferous vegetables, and because of the amount of Selenium you need) (I get mine from Dr. Wright's Tahoma Clinic: http://www.tahomadispensary.com/istar.asp?a=29&search=tri-quench or http://www.tahomadispensary.com/istar.asp?a=6&id=110067!162) 888-893-6878 toll-free, 19mg/drop, 1250drops/bottle, $22.64, Tri-Quench (SSKI) potassium iodide.

Super Artemisinin extract, Nutricology, 60 Veggie Caps, iherb ARG-55400, 180mg, $32.00. Take 1 to 2 capsules, once or twice daily on an empty stomach. [I took 2/d for 3 months with active cancer; best to take apart from minerals.] Sensitive individuals may take with food. [Not for long-term use (i.e., more than 1-2 months at a time. You could alternate it with Jarrow's IP6) Take IP6 or Artemisinin on an empty stomach, apart from any nutrients or minerals, and be sure to take enough minerals to compensate the good minerals (except iron or too much copper) which it also binds and eliminates or you'll have a mineral deficiency. Helpful for Cancer because it binds/chelates iron which cancer needs, but monitor liver enzymes and hemoglobin.] See Dr. Blaylock's Natural Strategies for Cancer Pts book. For maintenance (when cancer's gone), only use them periodically -- not every day. Be careful when taking Artemisinin and/or IP6 as you do not want to make iron levels too low for normal cells. Careful monitoring (of ferritin levels) is essential. Falling ferritin levels can mean improved control of the cancer. Tests for ferritin levels are available in most laboratories and are relatively inexpensive (Blaylock p243-4). Note that excess copper and iron also stimulate cancer growth, and that a ferritin test is more appropriate to measure iron levels in cancer patients than the standard RBC and hematocrit, since the body attempts to bind and hide iron to protect itself. [See notes above under IP6] Long term administration (greater than 1 month) should be monitored by a healthcare practitioner and include liver enzymes and hemoglobin testing. Combining with antioxidants or iron may theoretically decrease effectiveness. Detoxification reactions may be experienced by some individuals. Artemisinin seeks out cancer cells and combines with the excessive iron inside them (quite a bit more than RBC's have) and detonates a free-radical "bomb" inside them, quickly destroying them! It also works on iron-containing pathogens, such as drug-resistant malaria. Dr. Rowen does consultations over the phone (or you can travel out to California and see him in person), and is very knowledgeable about Artemisinin. If you talk to him, ask him about the advisability of using IPT (insulin potentiation therapy) in your case, also. See below for his address, phone number and an explanation of IPT. Dr. Rowen's article about Artemisinin and Cancer: http://www.springboard4health.com/notebook/nutrients_artemisinin.html

IP6 is similar; I used Artemisinin for 3 months, then used IP6 (cycled: not constantly) and took mineral supplements, but not at the same time of day as I was taking the IP6 (it'll bind the minerals and deplete your good as well as bad minerals).

IP6 - Jarrow IP6 powder, JRW-20013, $9.57/100g -- (http://www.iherb.com/ProductDetails.aspx?c=1&pid=193&at=0). IP6 is a water soluble antioxidant and protects against hydroxyl free radicals by chelating with reactive iron. Take with water on an empty stomach, apart from any minerals or medications. If you use IP6, you must carefully monitor your iron levels (via a blood ferritin test) to avoid lowering them too far: although too much iron is harmful, extremely low levels can impair your immune system. If your iron levels are high based upon your blood ferritin studies, you can take 500mg with each meal to bind the iron in your food and prevent its absorption. Another way to accomplish this goal is to take your green tea extract with your meals. To get the best immune stimulation, take 1000mg of IP6 with additional inositol between meals, and do not eat for 1 hour afterward in order to allow the IP6 to enter your bloodstream and tissues, and exert maximum cellular immune stimulation and iron chelation. IP6 (phytic acid) also binds with calcium, magnesium, zinc and other good minerals, so it's necessary to take supplemental good minerals and to take your IP6 apart from your minerals. Also, it's best to cycle IP6 rather than take it continuously, while keeping an eye on your ferritin level. Some of the things that can lower inflammation include Boswellia, Zyflamend, GLA, and Calamari DHA fish oil. Eliminate omega-6 oils (vegetable, canola, sunflower, safflower, soybean, corn, etc.); they are converted to arachidonic acid by your body and are pro-inflammatories that accelerate cancer. (Note: you actually need a small amount of pure omega-6 oils which you will get on this protocol from your GLA and olive oil, which contains mostly health-promoting omega-9 mono-unsaturated fat). One of the best ways to follow cancer growth is to keep an eye on the level of C-reactive protein, which measures inflammation. This is a simple, inexpensive blood test that can be performed in most laboratories -- you can order one yourself at a nearby lab through Life Extension (www.lef.org/bloodtest/), or your doctor can order one for you. The blood level of CRP has been shown to be a reliable predictor of survival in cases of multiple myeloma, melanoma, lymphoma, ovarian, pancreatic, colon and other cancers: the higher the level -- that is, the greater the inflammation -- the worse the prognosis is. Improvement in the level of CRP is believed to indicate an improving control over the cancer. Like CRP, blood ferritin levels are also a good way to follow the progress of your cancer: very high levels are often seen with advanced cancers, especially cancers that have metastasized. Falling ferritin levels can mean improved control of the cancer. Tests for blood ferritin levels are available in most labs and are relatively inexpensive. In some instances, a high blood ferritin level is the first evidence of a malignant disease. Unfortunately, people were told for many years that they needed more iron. Little did people know that all the iron that the government added -- and still is adding -- to flour, breads, cereals, crackers and other foods, and manufacturers are adding to multivitamin pills were actually increasing their risk of cancer and other degenerative diseases, since excess iron (and copper) are free radicals. If they already had cancer, it caused their cancer to grow faster and spread more rapidly.]

Note: when buying supplements, it's better to get "standardized" supplements (i.e., ones that say "standardized for 24% of Silymarin" or etc.); otherwise, one capsule might have a lot of the active ingredients and the next might be only dried leaves with little or no active ingredient. Standardized supplements ensure that you are getting the same amount of active ingredients each time. Also, www.consumerlab.com tests supplements and tells you which have little or no active ingredients, in case you're not sure of a brand (they have tested many, but not all brands).

Also, cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil fights cancer, and moderate exercise moves T-cells out of thymus gland and around the lymph system so that they can help the NK cells. Avoid glutamate/MSG/Kimchi with MSG, and cow milk/cheese (see Blaylock's cancer reports).

Distilled Water: Drink plenty of distilled water: 10 to 12 oz glasses a day. (I've used Waterwise distillers for many years and am very happy with them: www.gulfcoastjuicers.com/waterwise9000.html; Product Review: Waterwise Water Distiller Company: http://www.naturalnews.com/z024282.html)

Healthier cosmetics database:
www.cosmeticsdatabase.com

The cosmetic and body products women use every day can be contaminated with chemicals, and their effects could be especially harmful for teens. The Environmental Working Group (EW) tested 20 teenaged girls between the ages of 14 and 19 and found 16 chemicals in their blood and urine. The chemicals involved have been linked to hormone disruption and even cancer.

Teens are especially vulnerable in two ways. First, they use more personal care products than adult women, using an average of 17 each day with a total of 174 ingredients compared to the average adult woman's usage of 12. Second, the large number of products containing damaging ingredients comes at a time when girls' bodies are developing rapidly, and reproductive, immune, blood, and other systems are maturing.

Some of the sex hormones that guide the body's changes are present in miniscule amounts as low as one part per trillion (ppt) and girls' bodies may be particularly sensitive to chemicals that disrupt hormones.

The group advises that consumers avoid the following ingredients found in cosmetics and other personal care products:

* parbens (or ingredients that have "parben" as a part of their name). Linked to hormone disruption.

* Sodium lauryl or laureth sulfate. May cause skin damage.

* Fragrances and dyes. Tied to allergies, cancer, and difficulty with the nervous system

* "PEG" and "-eth." Toxic contaminants.

* Methylchloroisothiazolinone and methylisothiazolinone. Linked to allergies and difficulties with the nervous system.

* Triclosan and triclocarban. May cause thyroid problems.

* DMDM hydantoin and imidanzolidinyl urea. Toxic contaminants

* Triehanolamine (TEA). Contain toxic contaminants and also linked to allergies.

Some specific types of products the EWG also advises consumers to avoid include:

* Anti-aging creams that contain lactic, glycolia, AHA and BHA acid

* Nail polishes and nail polish removers that contain formaldehyde

* All dark permanent hair dyes and dyes containing peroxide, ammonia, p-phenylenediamine, and diaminobenzene.

This three-nutrient cocktail reduces cancer by up to 59%

Pancreatic cancer is one of the most difficult cancers to cure. It's one form of cancer you definitely don't want to get. And new research shows three different nutrients can substantially cut your risk. What's more, if you're a smoker, these nutrients can do even more to protect you. [Note: these flavanols are good for all types of cancer.]

Not only can these nutrients lower your risk of pancreatic cancer, they can lower your overall risk as well.

In this study, German researchers followed participants from many different ethnic groups. The eight-year study compared the cancer protection from three different flavanols (a type of plant polyphenols).

The researchers found that all three of the flavanols can slash your cancer risk. In fact, they slashed the risk for pancreatic cancer by 25%. If you are a smoker, the reduction is even more pronounced. You can cut it by more than 59%. This was the first study to examine the specific classes of flavanols and their impact on pancreatic cancer risk reduction.

The researchers studied the flavanols quercetin, kaempferol, and myricetin. You'll find quercetin in onions and apples, kaempferol in spinach and cabbage, and myricetin in red onions and berries. Of the three, kaempferol provided the largest amount of risk reduction - 22% - across all participants.

Obviously, eating all three will give you even more protection. That's why these are some of my favorite and most recommended foods. I try to eat an onion and spinach in my salad every day. And it's logical to think that if they slash the risk of pancreatic cancer, they will reduce your risk for other cancers as well.

You won't find these wonderful compounds in synthetic, processed, manmade petrochemicals. You can find natural quercetin and myricetin in supplement form on the Internet and in many health food stores (see Dr. Blaylock's suggestion about mixing quercetin along with 95% curcumin in a tablespoon of E.V. olive oil). But kaempferol is harder to find. So eat more of these foods to make sure you get all of the flavanols. And take additional quercetin and myricetin to increase your protection.

Yours for better health and medical freedom,

In addition to the above, I recommend using a Vitamix 5000 variable-speed blender that you run at lower speeds -- because the single or dual speed blenders generate enough heat on the blade surfaces to destroy the enzymes that are naturally found in food, and the standard juicers discard the all-important pulp. Use organic foods.

Choose at least 5 vegetables from the list below for blending in your Vitamix blender (2 ten ounce glasses/day). If possible, use all the vegetables on the list (Note: Dr. Blaylock was referring to the first sentence under "Vegetables" below, but he didn't mean that the others he mentioned elsewhere weren't good, also). In general, especially when first starting your conventional therapy, avoid fruits, or at least use just a minimum amount (because of the sugar content -- unless you have an extract supplement without the sugar that you want to take in addition).

Raw Vegetables: Beets (roots & tops), Broccoli (especially broccoli sprouts), Brussels sprouts, Carrots, Cauliflower, Celery, Kale, Spinach (don't eat with Vitamin C or other acids because they'll increase the absorption of iron), Parsley, Purple cabbage, Tomatoes, Turnip greens. Also, from Dr. Blaylock's cancer newsletter issues: Chinese cabbage, Mustard greens, Collard greens, Squash, Cilantro (best taken with low-mercury chlorella, such as Kyoto brand), Onion, Ginger, Garlic, and Cayenne. Others mentioned by Jerry Brunetti: Cabbage (especially Purple cabbage), sweet potatoes (in moderation -- root vegetables are starchy), winter squashes, asparagus, misc. greens such as raddichio, arugula, endive, dandelion, collard greens, mustard greens, beets, red, green & hot peppers, eggplant, tomatoes, artichoke, cilantro. Others from Dr. Williams' Cancer report: Cress/watercress, radish, horseradish, rutabaga, kohlrabi, Bok Choy. Jalapeno, other hot peppers.

Peppers also have cancer fighting substances. The spice turmeric can be added as well. [from Dr. Blaylock: The cruciferous vegetables - such as broccoli (especially broccoli sprouts), Brussels sprouts, kale and cauliflower - are loaded. Studies have shown that these vegetables provide superior cancer-preventing power. A number of other vegetables are big hitters, as well. These include turnip greens, mustard greens, collard greens, cabbage (especially purple and Chinese cabbage), carrots, green and red peppers, onions, beets including greens, celery, parsley, eggplant, tomatoes, artichoke and cilantro. Of the fruits, the most important are cranberries, currants, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries and apples (especially the McIntosh variety).] The juice should contain a significant amount of cruciferous vegetables including: broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower (this is for both the cancer and the critical protection of the liver) [Thanks to Dr. Russell Blaylock, Jerry Brunetti, and also to Webster Kehr at www.cancertutor.com for the above. For other helpful information, you might see: http://www.cancertutor.com/faq/faq_how_started.html]

Add cold-pressed, extra virgin olive oil (in a glass bottle is best) to your blended mix, along with spices if you wish.

Fruits: Blackberries*, Blueberries*, Raspberries*, Cranberries, Grapefruit, Apples (especially McIntosh), Oranges*, Tangerines*, Red currants, Strawberries*, Currents, grapes* (only if organic and you check with the grower that they don't use Cryolite, a fluoride-based insecticide, as all conventional and some organic growers use it.) * DO NOT ADD if you presently have cancer -- take ellagic acid/pomegranate extract instead and sugar-free blueberry extract. I also use BerryVin (http://www.vitacost.com/NSI-BerryVin-FKA-Berryvida-High-Orac-Berries , NI 001996).

One of my favorite blends is (mostly organic) green onions, fresh parsley, fresh cherry tomatoes, celery, carrots, brussels sprouts and various other greens, fresh onion, garlic, some cayenne and a jalapeno pepper! (When blending, add about a cup of distilled water and some cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil to help it liquify).

Dr. Blaylock recommends that you use Environne Fruit & Vegetable Wash (www.environne.com) and scrub and rinse them afterwards. He also said that since insecticides penetrate several millimeters into the skins of apples, he advises peeling apples before eating or putting them in the blender. (See my "Cancer&Raw Food" page for more info.

By blenderizing, you can absorb up to 90% of the nutrients in vegetables and fruits, as opposed to only about 10% for people who chew their food an average amount, and about 20-30% for people who chew their food very thoroughly. Blenderizing (juicing at low speed to preserve the enzymes, and eating the pulp as well as the juice) raw vegetables and fruits (take concentrated berry extracts instead of eating fruits if you have active cancer because of the high sugar content in fruits) retains the plant enzymes and vitamins. Berries (mostly the skins, which some juices throw away) are also helpful. Organic is higher in nutrients, and safer because it is lower in pesticides. A good berry extract is: http://www.vitacost.com/NSI-BerryVin-FKA-Berryvida-High-Orac-Berries , NI 001996, NSI BerryVin.

Excerpt from Dr. Blaylock's October 2008 newsletter, "The Great Cancer Lie -- It Is Preventable and Beatable":
Drink Your Vegetables! The best way to maximize your intake of the anti-cancer nutrients is to blenderize your vegetables and drink them each day. The most potent anticancer vegetables include:
* Broccoli
* Brussels sprouts
* Cauliflower
* Celery
* Greens (mustard collard, turnip)
* Kale
* Parsley
* Spinach

The most potent anticancer vegetables include broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, celery, and greens (mustard, collard, and turnip) and garlic. They should be blenderized for maximum potency.

Because kale, broccoli and Brussels sprouts can contain chemicals that inhibit the thyroid gland in their raw state, I suggest lightly steaming them before blenderizing to neutralize the chemicals (Note: I include a moderate amount of these in my juice in their raw form).

See the following for which foods are highest in pesticides, and therefore you should buy organic (if you cannot afford all organic): http://www.foodnews.org/walletguide.php, http://www.foodnews.org/walletguide.php, http://www.grinningplanet.com/2006/update-2005-05-24/pesticides-in-food.htm, http://www.foodnews.org/index.php, http://www.foodnews.org/fulldataset.php

The Foods That Are Most Affected by Pesticides
http://www.naturalnews.com/024404.html

Also, see my Links page for articles telling how to identify and avoid GMO / genetically modified foods / "Frankenfoods".

Avoid these: No white starch, sugar, chlorinated/fluoridated water, hydrogenated trans-fats, artificial colors, artificial or natural sweeteners -- not even honey, raw cane sugar, fruit sugar/fructose, etc. (except Stevia, which I get from www.emperorsherbologist.com ) BGH (bovine growth hormone) in cow's milk and cheese increases a hormone called IGF and makes cancer grow rapidly. Goat's milk (preferably raw) is better. Note that sugar feeds cancer, whether it's "organic", "raw", honey, corn syrup, fruit juice, etc.

Essentials:

a.) Clean air (I use HEPA filters in the living room & bedroom. No wood stoves/wood-burning fireplaces, burning candles, incense or air "fresheners"!) Also, avoid naphthalene (often used to deodorize toilets and urinals), mothballs, camphor, Vicks and other camphor rubs -- especially with lung cancer.

b.) Pure water (distilled, to which I add some magnesium: http://www.iherb.com/store/ProductDetails.aspx?c=Herbs&pid=NOW-01405 );

c.) Clean house and environment (avoid harmful chemical pesticides, cleaners, etc. -- we use half dish detergent + half water for June bugs; cucumber peels for ants; a spritz bottle with vinegar and another with 3% hydrogen peroxide for kitchen cleaning, using one followed by the other; vinegar + water + lemon juice for windows/mirrors; etc. Try to find non-toxic alternatives.

d.) Clean body: The ingredients in cosmetics do not have to be tested for safety as the government doesn't realize that they are absorbed internally through your skin. Aubrey Organics is one brand that is concerned with the systemic effects of its ingredients. Deodorants trap toxins in our bodies, which is especially significant in breast and lung cancer, although it plays a role in the detoxification of all types of cancer. Two brands I recommend are: Dessert Essence (Tea Tree Oil & Lemon Grass), http://www.betterlife.com/prod_home_page.asp?prod_id=10575 , 243048, $4.11, 3 oz; and Home Health Herbal Magic unscented, www.vitacost.com , HH 575091, $2.97, 2 oz (318858575091). If additional protection is needed, after washing, rinsing and drying, you can apply ethyl rubbing or drinking alcohol (not isopropyl or other alcohols -- they're absorbed through your skin and are toxic to your liver), wait a few seconds for the alcohol to air-dry, then apply the deodorant. To learn more, and find non-toxic alternatives: http://www.cosmeticsdatabase.com, http://healthtruthrevealed.com/chemical-warfare.pdf, http://www.safecosmetics.org/your_health/poisonkiss.cfm, http://www.safecosmetics.org/your_health/index.cfm, Choosing Products That Promote Beauty and Well Being:
http://www.naturalnews.com/024416.html

e.) Clean, organic food: see Dr. Blaylock's discussion of washing the pesticides off your foods, and if you cannot afford all organic foods (I, for one, cannot), then which ones you should only get organic. (search for Environne below, and see: http://www.grinningplanet.com/2006/update-2005-05-24/pesticides-in-food.htm, http://www.foodnews.org/index.php, http://www.foodnews.org/fulldataset.php)

f.) Enough sleep, rest, and freedom from excessive stress (some stress is actually good for you, but not if it's excessive)

g.) A moderate amount of exercise moves the Natural Killer cells and other immune cells out of the thymus gland and circulates them throughout the body. It also circulates the lymph and helps your immune system deal with cancer and infections. Excessive exercise is oxidizing and creates too many free radicals.

h.) Imagery/Visualization: See the section entitled "Imagery/Visualization" below (or Edit, Search for it, using your browser).

i.) Eat Right for Your Metabolism, Not Your Blood Type: Dr. Kelley cured himself of pancreatic cancer, which to this day is still incurable by conventional medicine, by eating an almost totally vegetarian diet, along with spiritual elements and supplements. When his wife became very ill, he tried the same diet on her and she became much sicker and almost died until he tried a last-ditch effort of giving her a lot of meat. She quickly recovered. Dr. Kelley spent many years investigating various metabolic types of people and what types of foods and supplements would keep each type in optimum health. You might have heard that everyone needs to alkalinize their bodies to recover from cancer by eating certain "alkaline" foods. Some types, such as parasympathetic dominant people, are actually too alkaline and need to be acidified! (See the article "Eat Right for Your Metabolism, Not Your Blood Type" in the section about Dr. Rowen below for more information.)

Regarding what is healthy and what isn't, here is an excerpt of a report courtesy of Dr. Blaylock (www.NewsMax.com/BlaylockReports), a board-certified neurologist who is also a naturopathic doctor:

If you listen to the mainstream press, you probably think that the perfect diet should contain lots of soy products, whole grains, vegetable oils, cheese and milk. Nothing could be farther from the truth. In fact, all of these promote the inception and growth of cancer. Instead, your diet should mostly contain highly nutrient-dense vegetables, a few fruits, lean meats, low-glycemic carbohydrates and purified water. It is important that your diet contain no cow's milk, cheese, vegetable oils, processed foods, beef or beef products, soy products, sugar or foods containing it, artificial sweeteners, MSG (even in disguised forms) or fluoridated water.

Meats
The risk of getting Mad Cow disease (prion disease) is far too high to take a chance on eating beef. One beef product that puts you at highest risk is gelatin, which often contains neural cow components. It is also high in fluoride and the amino acid glutamate (an excitotoxin and a food additive commonly used to enhance taste). Many vitamins come in gelatin capsules or "softgels." I would not take them. In addition, cattle have a very high incidence of two virally generated cancers - lymphosarcoma and leukemia. It has been shown that the virus that causes them can be passed to humans and may cause similar cancers. Those who work in the slaughterhouse are at higher risk for these cancers, while children who drink cow's milk are more prone to leukemia. Eating poorly cooked beef (rare or medium rare) can put someone at risk of consuming live cancer viruses.

Hot dogs, bologna and other processed meats can put you at risk for Mad Cow disease and they contain cancer-causing nitrites. A number of studies have shown an association between pregnant women eating nitrites in meats and their children developing brain tumors.

Organically raised turkeys, chicken, pigs and even cattle are much safer, but I am still hesitant about recommending organically raised cattle, since no studies have been done on the incidence of viral cancers in these animals.

It is also important to avoid overcooked or seared meats, as they develop powerful cancer-causing compounds called heterocyclic amines, which are strongly associated with colon and stomach cancer. Barbecuing on an open grill is especially hazardous because of these chemicals. Some studies have shown that eating fresh vegetables with meats significantly reduces the heterocyclic amine danger, as do curcumin, quercetin, hesperidin and vitamin C.

As with most things in life, quality trumps quantity when it comes to choosing fruits and vegetables. While fruits can have important cancer-fighting power, I don't usually suggest you eat a lot of them. That's because most are high in sugar, which increases your risk of cancer, as well as neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. The link is that high calorie intake increases free-radical generation.

Certain vegetables contain extremely high levels of cancer-preventing substances, while others have very few. The cruciferous vegetables - such as broccoli (especially broccoli sprouts), Brussels sprouts, kale and cauliflower - are loaded. Studies have shown that these vegetables provide superior cancer-preventing power. A number of other vegetables are big hitters, as well. These include turnip greens, mustard greens, collard greens, cabbage (especially purple and Chinese cabbage), carrots, green and red peppers, onions, celery, parsley, eggplant, tomatoes, artichoke and cilantro.

Of the fruits, the most important are cranberries, currants, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries and apples (especially the McIntosh variety). You'll probably notice that I omitted grapes, which do in fact contain a number of powerful cancer-preventing substances. The reason? Most commercial grapes are grown in California and are high in fluoride, which is used as an insecticide (cryolite) that is sprayed on crops. Fluoride, a very reactive element, binds to all the components of the grape and is still present even after the fruit is sold in bunches or processed into juice and wine. Organic grapes may or may not contain it, depending on the grower.

Fluoride has been shown to increase cancer growth and bone cancer risk by 600% in young men. Several major studies found that cancer death rates in cities with fluoridated water were 10% higher than those of cities with fluoride-free water.

Cancer Causers: Pesticides and Herbicides
I can remember, when I was a resident in neurosurgery, laughing at my friend's wife because she religiously washed all her vegetables. I thought she was going overboard - a real health nut. Only now do I see just how smart she was. Crops in this country - on some 900,000 farms and millions of acres of land - are sprayed with 1.2 billion pounds of pesticide a year. Some 70% of livestock are also doused regularly with poisons, and that may play a major role in the proliferation of Creutzfeld-Jacob (Mad Cow) disease. Many pesticides, such as aldrin, dieldrin, endrin and heptachlor, have been proven harmful to humans and banned by the Environmental Protection Agency. The problem is that a significant amount of our food is grown in other countries - where the use of these chemicals is still legal. It has been determined that people living in the industrialized world have as many as 75 pesticide and herbicide residues stored in their fat cells. Most of these compounds are fat-soluble and are therefore trapped in the body for an entire lifetime. A recent study uncovered a strong correlation between pesticide exposure in young men and the early development of aggressive prostate cancer. Those exposed to pesticides lived only half as long as those not exposed. Another study found that postmenopausal women exposed to PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls an organochlorine pesticide) had a higher risk of developing breast cancer - if they inherited a defect in a special detoxification enzyme. And pesticides can also give the human papillomavirus more power to induce breast cancer. (See http://www.foodnews.org/ for a free guide explaining which produce is highest & lowest in pesticides; in case you cannot afford to get everything organic, I'd recommend that for any of the ones higher in pesticides that you are going to buy, you at least get them organic.)

This shows how a number of cancer-causing chemicals and factors can act together to produce cancer. Sometimes they combine, in a process called synergism, to become infinitely more powerful than they would be alone. In our everyday lives, we are exposed to a number of carcinogenic agents - some weak, some strong. Many act synergistically, enabling two weak carcinogens to have a very strong cancer-causing effect. These food products neutralize the cancerous effects of pesticides and herbicides by stimulating the body's detoxification systems, both in the liver and in all cells.

Another way to avert danger is by removing the pesticide and herbicide residues from your fruits and vegetables. Like my friend's wife, you should carefully cleanse all produce in a vegetable wash. Several brands are available. I use a product called Environne Fruit & Vegetable Wash (www.environne.com). When rinsing your produce, always use fluoride-free water, since the substance will bind to your food. Some produce (peppers, squash, cucumbers, etc.) is coated with a wax that has been permeated by pesticides and must be scrubbed with a vegetable brush. I would also avoid the skin on apples, as poisons penetrate several millimeters into the peel. I have never seen a cancer prevention study in which washed vegetables were used, so you can see how most studies are misleading.

Fats: Friend and Foe
Fats have been shown to play a major role in the evolution of cancer. Some fats prevent it, while others promote its development and aid its ability to spread. I call these "good fats" and "bad fats." Among the bad fats are the omega-6 fats, which include corn, safflower, sunflower, peanut, soybean and canola oils. A number of experiments have shown that these oils work as an activator for cancer, making it grow and spread like wildfire. They do this through a number of mechanisms, one of which is increasing the COX-2 enzyme. We call these the pro-inflammatory fats.

The good fats include the omega-3 oils and other oils that are converted into EPA and DHA, such as alpha-linolenic acid. The omega-3 oils come from algae, which explains how fish obtain them. This is also why farm-raised fish are devoid of omega-3 oils, which are composed of two nutrients - EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). Of the two, DHA has the more powerful anticancer effect and it is especially efficient in preventing cancer of the colon, prostate and breasts. Pure DHA is derived from algae, and an adult dose is 500 mg. a day. For children ages 2 to 12, the dose is 100 mg. a day. DHA inhibits cancer using a number of mechanisms - principally inflammation reduction. Most of the others are beyond the scope of this newsletter. For more information on this and other cancer treatment topics, see my newly released book, Natural Strategies for Cancer Patients. (See http://www.russellblaylockmd.com/ and www.NewsMax.com/BlaylockReports and his books http://web.mac.com/rblaylock/iWeb/Russell%20Blaylock%20M.D./Books.html)
The Carlson Company (www.carlsonlabs.com) sells both high-dose DHA (700 mg.) and one of the purest fish oils, a Norwegian variety that contains 500 mg. of DHA. It has a pleasant lemon taste. All oils should be kept refrigerated.

Flaxseed oil is also one of the good oils. It is composed of alpha-linolenic acid, which the body actually turns into EPA and DHA. But not all people can efficiently convert the oil - infants, small children and the chronically ill are among those who have problems. And the stuff very easily becomes rancid. A test, the Essential and Metabolic Fatty Acid Profile, will indicate whether or not you are converting the oil. There is a really good article about the different types of fats and their effects upon health and cancer at: http://www.jonbarron.org/newsletters/02/10-21-2002.php Note that, even though the specific cancer that Jon's mentioning in this article happens to be prostate, because he's addressing a trial that only was looking at flax oil's effect upon prostate cancer, it applies equally to all types of cancers, and health in general.

Here is some information from Dr. Jonathan Wright on fats:

Q: I read that it's unlikely that anyone would be deficient in omega-6 fatty acids since they're found in most vegetable oils. Is that true?

JVW: Omega-6 fatty acids are found in nuts and seeds, so it would seem logical that oils extracted and produced from them should contain adequate amounts. However, there are several steps in the production process of and use of vegetable oils (corn, sunflower seed, safflower seed, sesame seed, soybean, flaxseed, etc.) that basically destroy most of the oils' real nutrient value.

When manufacturers extract oil from seeds, they usually leave behind most of the vitamin E and other antioxidants originally present in the various seeds. Plus, as soon as the oils are extracted, they start to oxidize.

Storage of seed oils, especially in containers at home, involves repeated exposure to oxygen as the containers are opened and closed again, which causes further oxidation. Then, when you use heat up these seed oils to cook food, they're oxidized some more, and more of their nutritional quality is compromised.

Given all of these opportunities for oxidation, it's a small marvel we get useful omega-6 fatty acids from seed oils at all!

But it is possible to ward off at least a little of this oxidation. First, add at least 800 to 1,000 units of vitamin E to each container of oil as soon as it's opened. This not only helps keep the oil from oxidizing as quickly, but it also helps to make up for what gets lost in the production process). From there, try to limit your consumption of these types of oils to uses that don't involve heating them (as a salad dressing, for example).

Keep in mind, though, the best sources of the omega-6 fatty acids are whole unroasted nuts and seeds. And remember that even though you do need omega-6 fatty acids, the omega-3s should "outnumber" them.


Supplements That I Take:

Chlorella
(Note: take Chlorella with Cilantro -- they work together to get the metals out of your body. The chlorella should be a pure type grown in a laboratory, because it absorbs heavy metals from the environment. www.iherb.com [ARG-55650, Allergy Research Group/Nutricology King Chlorella, 600 Chewable Tablets, $20.54*.86=17.66, 4/$80.11, 12/$234.16]; http://www.vitacost.com/NutriCology-KingChlorella [NUC 7556508, NutriCology KingChlorella -- 600 Tablets, $19.69] [Dr. Rowen recommends and uses this per email The one chlorella product I trust more than any other 7-8-2009; others may have absorbed metals from the environment they've been grown in.])

Mike Adams: "We've now got chlorella powder available at the Natural News Store. It's the "Clean Chlorella" variety, the cleanest chlorella on the planet, bar none."
We've just released the latest (and most precise) lab test results for our Clean Chlorella superfood. These tests prove it's the cleanest chlorella in the world:
http://www.naturalnews.com/040466_clean_chlorella_heavy_metals_lab_tests.html
As you'll see, these tests confirm once more that Clean Chlorella is the cleanest superfood on the planet. And this time, we ran these tests at 10 ppb (10 parts per billion) precision!
BTW, we ran these tests on high-end ICP-MS equipment which is orders of magnitude more sensitive than the older lab equipment typically used in the food industry.
If you want to get some Clean Chlorella, it's back in stock at the Natural News Store. And now we've just introduced chlorella powder as well.

Alpha Lipoic Acid (or R-Lipoic: these potentiate and replenish Vitamins C and E, after they quench free radicals). Dr. Al Sears says, "Alpha lipoic acid (LA) is called the 'universal antioxidant' because it fights free radical damage to cells in both fatty and watery areas of the body. It goes everywhere. And it can extend the life of other antioxidants like vitamins C and E, and CoQ10. And, LA is able to chelate transient ions -- which means it's effective at treating heavy metal intoxication. Take 250 mg a day."

NAC (N-Acetyl Cysteine): www.swansonvitamins.com (SW854)(helps body make glutathione: don't take more than 1000mg/d). Dr. Al Sears says, "N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) is remarkable. It boosts your levels of one of your body's strongest antioxidants, glutathione. It also saves lives every year as a treatment for acute poisoning with acetaminophen-containing pain-relieving drugs. And it detoxifies. When researchers bathed cells in lead, the DNA of the NAC-treated cells lived longer, and had their DNA protected from damage. NAC directly boosts cells' antioxidant defense mechanisms to defend against lead toxicity."

Why it is Essential to Boost Glutathione and How to Naturally
http://www.naturalnews.com/z028570_glutathione_GSH.html
"Glutathione is a small protein composed of three amino acids: cysteine, glutamic acid and glycine. It is involved in detoxification of the liver and the body. Glutathione [binds] to toxins, such as heavy metals, solvents, and pesticides, and transforms them into a form that can be excreted in urine or bile. Glutathione is also an important antioxidant, counteracting the effects of free radicals produced in the body by oxidation reactions." (source: http://www.cancertutor.com/Other/Liver_Cancer.html)
The Vital Key to Maximum Antioxidant Activity is Glutathione

Hot Pepper (Cayenne -- not Black or White "pepper", which are carcinogenic), Ginger, Garlic and Horseradish (all organic) help with inflammation, and clear your lungs and sinuses, along with increasing mucous to flush them out of toxins: Swanson NW486 (www.swansonvitamins.com Nature's Way); Starwest Botanicals is a good source of organic cayenne. Sweating out toxins also helps (e.g., from a sauna, or short-burst, intense exercise -- such as running as if a Grizzly Bear was after you, and, on alternate days, lifting 80% of the maximum weights that you can lift) in an environment with clean air), or being in a sauna.

Curcumin, hesperidin, ginger and quercetin (which are oil-soluble, and not well-absorbed unless you mix them well into cold pressed Extra Virgin Olive oil or molecularly-distilled liquid fish oil) may also be useful for increasing glutathione levels; it also helps detoxify the liver and reduces inflammation. I have 2-3 TBS/d freshly-ground flaxseed mixed in my organic steel-cut oats, distilled water, org cinnamon with a pinch of Stevia (www.emperorsherbologist.com extracted with hot water only; no solvents) for sweetening, which has the advantage of also containing cancer-fighting lignans along with the flax oil that is naturally found in the seeds, and also has fiber to help detox, along with molecularly-distilled fish oil (into which I mix curcumin, hesperidin, ginger and quercetin from capsules that I open; see recipe on my main cancer protocol page: www.distance-healer.com/24.html), cold pressed EV olive oil, and GLA (Evening Primrose, Borage Oil or Black Currant Seed oil].

IQAir submicron Air Filters in rooms you're most often in (and keep windows closed).
IQAir HealthPro PLUS Air Purifier FREE 2ND DAY AIR
The IQAir HealthPro Plus Air Purifier uses four advanced filtration technologies to remove particulate and molecular air pollutants. The HealthPro Plus is our best selling IQAir air cleaner and is well suited for both those suffering from respiratory ailments and for health conscious individuals. The IQAir HealthPro Plus is especially popular with those suffering from asthma as it effectively cleans the air while not releasing any irritating byproducts such as ozone.
Most air cleaners are designed to filter particles 0.3 microns and larger while the IQAir HealthPro Plus is designed and tested to filter particles 0.0003 microns (the world's smallest particle) and larger. Because the larger particles (0.3 microns and up) make up only 10% of airborne particulates, the majority of other consumer air purifiers can not protect you from ultra-fine particles that have been proven by numerous scientific studies to be the most harmful to your health. Leading medical research organizations such as the American Heart Association agree that these ultra-fine particles present a significant health risk. In fact, the California Air Resources Board recently estimated that ultra-fine particles subtract ten years from a person's life.
IQAir's HyperHEPA filtration is certified to filter down to 0.003 microns with a minimum efficiency of over 99.5%. This filtration removes particles 100 times smaller than ordinary HEPA is capable of. The HealthPro Plus is the first room air purifier to with filters certified to EN 1822, the most stringent filter standard. In addition, IQAir's HyperHEPA filters have received H12/H13 certification. With these certifications, you can be confident that the HealthPro Plus is producing the cleanest, freshest air possible for your home.
Features of the IQAir HealthPro Plus Air Purifier Include:
* HyperHEPA Technology: Only offered by IQAir, HyperHEPA filters out particles 100 times smaller than regular HEPA
* Certified Performance: Each unit is tested before it leaves the factory to assure that it performs to IQAir's exacting standards. Results of the testing on your specific unit is certified and included.
* Ultra-Quiet Design: The Design of the HealthPro Plus assures ultra-quietness. These design features include "fan-in-center" motor placement, double-walled housing, motor vibration isolation.
* Advanced Controls: Six fan speeds, automatic operation, day/night timer, filter life monitor, remote control, and more.
* Molecular Control: The IQ Air HealthPro Plus is effective for both pollution particles and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) as well as other odor/irritant causing chemicals
* Timeless Design: The design of the HealthPro Plus will fit in virtually any decor, now and into the future.

IQAir HealthPro Room Air Purifier System Only $849 ($1.99 Shipping)
http://www.filtersfast.com/P-IQAir-HealthPro-Room-Air-Purifier.asp
When you see IQAir advertising the .003 micron efficiency, it's about the 99.5% capture rate.
Any HEPA will capture some .003 micron particulate, just a lower percentage.
.3 micron is the most difficult particle to capture, so the HEPA engineering standard uses it as the benchmark.
http://www.air-purifier-power.com/buildyourownhomemade102009.html

IQAir submicron Air Filter for Your Car or RV:
The IQAir HealthPro Compact Air Purifier features the same technology as the larger sized Healthpro Air Cleaner, but in a smaller package. Unlike the full-size model, the HealthPro Compact may not be upgraded with the V-5 Cell gas and odor filter. The HealthPro Compact Air Cleaner removes every type of particle air pollutant. This includes particles that are 100 times smaller than HEPA filtration can remove. Just like larger IQAir Air Purifiers, The HealthPro compact does not release potentially harmful chemicals such as ozone.
The HEPA standard is filtration of particles 0.3 microns and larger, but the IQAir HealthPro Compact Air Purifier removes particles 0.0003 microns (the world's smallest particle) and larger. Making up 90% of airborne particulates, these smaller particles are a significant health risk according to leading medical organizations like the California Air Resources Board and the American Heart Association. With IQAir's HyperHEPA technology, the HealthPro Compact effectively removes these ultra-small particles.
Features of the IQAir HealthPro Compact Air Purifier Include:
* HyperHEPA Filtration Technology: .0003 micron particle filtration at over 99.5% efficiency
IQAir HealthPro Compact Air Cleaner purifies a smaller area, up to 900 sq ft. It offers the same air particle purification as the HealthPro, but there is no optional upgrade to control gas and odor if needed. It is smaller and lighter weight. ($799 with free 2nd Day Air shipping)

Ultraliquid Zeolite - Liquid Zeolite - The World's Best Liquid Zeolite Formula [This is the one that I use, along with the powdered zeolite below]
http://www.liquidzeolitecompany.com/categories/Liquid-Zeolite/
Comparison to "W" Brand
http://www.liquidzeolitecompany.com/pages/Chart.html
The company tells people to take 2 bottles/month for 3 months; then 1 bottle/month (shake/swish bottle before taking to suspend the zeolite particles). At 13 drops/d, 1 bottle will last 28-31 days. You can spread out the 13 drops and take them 3-4 times a day. It only stays in the body 7 hours, so it's best to take it spread out (i.e., multiple times during the day). For heavy detox, you could take 13 drops 2 or more times a day. Liquid has 10mg Zeolite per serving + Fulvic Acid + Humic Acid. The liquid greatly outsells the powder for him, and he gets most of his testimonials from the liquid. He said the reason the liquid works so well even though it contains less zeolite than the powder may be that it acts like a homeopathic, but he's not sure. For research on Fulvic Acid, see www.supremefulvic.com and click on "Documents". Zeolite (liquid and powder) works best if taken on an empty stomach (1 hour before, or 2 hours after meals or supplements) so that it will not absorb any healthy minerals. You could also take some with a meal that contains toxins, such as with fish, to help absorb some of the mercury that is in it.

Imagery/Visualization: HowTo

It's important that you do some imagery/ visualization to help yourself get better. It's a technique that strengthens the immune system. I taught Bernie Siegel about it in the early 1970's when my first wife had Hodgkin's disease. Since early stage Hodgkin's Disease responds well to radiation (but now I wonder about the risk of secondary cancers caused by the treatment vs using all natural methods), I augmented radiation with imagery and supplements/herbs and the doctors at Yale, including Bernie, said that she recovered so quickly that they wanted to know all about the imagery (and said to keep on doing it). I explained that it's a lot more than a Placebo Effect: how the Russians had done a lot of research about the connection between the mind and will to live (one book that I had read about it was Psychic Discoveries Behind the Iron Curtain); how my aunt had died and then my uncle died a week later of a broken heart, although there was nothing physically wrong with him (and this is very commonplace); and how Voodoo witch doctors can heal or kill by the power of belief -- i.e., if the victim believes in the power of Voodoo, he will stop eating, give up the will to live and his white cell count will measurably plummet, and he will usually die. There is even a book about 50 Cancer Survivors who each beat cancer in a different way -- the only thing that they had in common was a very strong belief that life was worth living and a fierce will to live. I explained to him my method (as described below), and shortly afterwards, Bernie Siegel quit surgery and went into teaching about imagery full-time. In 1978, a couple of years after this, Dr. O. Carl Simonton published a book Getting Well about similar concepts of using the mind to heal the body.

My method of imagery/visualization is quite simple. You can picture opposing armies, with your army winning, or cotton-ball shaped white cells swallowing up and killing black dots representing germs or cancer cells. While you're doing this, tighten up your solar plexus muscles and hold them for a few seconds until you visualize the cancer (germs, if you're using visualization to fight an infection) being dead and your white cells (or army) victorious. Next, I visualize a peaceful, relaxing scene -- it can be any you want. Mine is lying beside a babbling brook in the grass, under a blue sky with puffy clouds with birds singing and being totally healthy and happy. The key is to go away from the visualization really believing that you've beaten it. I had a friend who had Lymphoma do this for a few minutes twice a day. (She beat it). You can modify this, for example picture Pac-men or opposing armies, or etc. The important part is to each time visualize winning and leave it feeling at peace and healthy. Many people find that it helps to listen to some healing/meditation music (such as Reiki or Merlin's Magic, available on Amazon) while you're doing imagery and visualization; it relaxes them and contributes to their healing experience.

Besides just the obvious physical aspects of illness, the state of your mind, emotions and spirit are also very important in health and to overcome disease. Your mind can help heal you or help kill you. This is the principle of voodoo: people who are cursed and believe in its power to kill them give up the will to live, stop eating, their white blood cell count plummets, and they die. People who don't believe in it don't die (some witch doctors have resorted to killing them in the traditional way in order to avoid losing faith amongst the "believers". Also, many of us know of a person who has died from some cause or another and soon afterwards the spouse dies because they simply have given up the will to live, making it easy for a heart attack, cancer or some other opportunistic disease to develop and kill them. Use your mind to enhance your recovery from disease, rather than deter from it by using imagery or visualization.

Your belief system can also trap you into passively accepting treatments that have very low percentages of success (such as going with the flow, or with whatever the insurance company will pay for), rather than allowing you to make an objective study of treatments with a better chance of success. Your mind can help heal or help kill you. It can also cause you to deny that you should stop smoking, drinking, taking drugs, eating bad foods, staying out late, getting little sleep and not taking care of yourself, etc.

When you have a disease, particularly a serious one, it's imperative that you make the effort to do your homework and explore all possible alternatives with an open mind. Too often, patients refuse to even consider treatments other than surgery, chemotherapy or radiation until it is too late and they are at death's door. In general, alternative treatments have a much higher success rate with degenerative diseases, particularly if they are done sooner in the disease process, before the body is destroyed by surgery, chemo, radiation or drugs, than when death is inevitable. Here is a link and excerpt from an article discussing this concept. (Note that it's better to help your mind to heal your body by augmenting imagery with proper diet, lifestyle and supplements.)

Obituary: Dr. O. Carl Simonton / Recognized that positive attitude helped to fight cancer
http://www.post-gazette.com/news/obituaries/2009/07/05/Obituary-Dr-O-Carl-Simonton-Recognized-that-positive-attitude-helped-to-fight-cancer/stories/200907050219

Dr. O. Carl Simonton, a radiation oncologist who popularized the mind-body connection in fighting cancer and helped push the once-controversial notion into mainstream medicine, has died. He was 66.

Dr. Simonton, who founded a cancer care clinic in Pacific Palisades on the west side of Los Angeles in the early 1980s, choked to death June 18 during a meal at his Los Angeles area home in Agoura Hills, said his wife, Karen.

Early in his medical career, Dr. Simonton noticed that patients given the same dose of radiation for similar cancers had different outcomes. When he looked into why, he concluded that people who had a more positive attitude generally lived longer and had fewer side effects.

Talking openly about cancer was groundbreaking in the 1970s, as were such Dr. Simonton techniques as meditation and mental imagery, said Julia Rowland, director of the National Cancer Institute's Office of Cancer Survivorship.

"For an oncologist to pioneer a mind-body approach was very provocative at the time, and yet very humane," Dr. Rowland said. "It gave people more of a sense of control over their illness and allowed patients to think differently about their role in the healing process."

After implementing an early psycho-social oncology program while chief of radiation therapy at Travis Air Force Base in Fairfield, Calif., in the early 1970s, Dr. Simonton founded a cancer counseling and research center in Fort Worth, Texas, that included emotional support as a key component.

His own research indicated that when lifestyle counseling was added to medical treatment for patients with advanced cancer, their survival time doubled and their quality of life improved.

A study by Stanford University and the University of California, Berkeley researchers concluded in 1989 that women with advanced breast cancer who received emotional counseling lived about twice as long as those who did not.

The study was independent evidence that Dr. Simonton's "whole body" approach to battling the illness made a difference, Dr. David Siegel, a psychiatrist and Stanford professor who wrote the study, confirmed in an e-mail to the Los Angeles Times.

Dr. Simonton outlined his "will to live" philosophy of cancer care in "Getting Well Again," a 1978 book written with his second wife, a psychotherapist then known as Stephanie Matthews-Simonton, and others. It drew on first-hand experience with patients at his Fort Worth cancer-care center.

The book was "highly praised" by officials at the National Institutes of Health and doctors who specialized in cancer and heart problems, the Times reported in a 1981 article with the headline, "Medicine's 'Other Side' -- the Mind."

Thousands of counselors have trained in the Simonton Method, which includes teaching patients to visualize their bodies fighting cancer cells -- and winning the war.

According to the American Cancer Society, "available scientific evidence does not support claims that imagery can influence the development or progress of cancer" but it can help reduce stress, depression, manage pain and ease side-effects, in addition to creating "feelings of being in control."

The use of guided imagery is much more accepted and widely used today, especially to manage side-effects, a development that can be traced to Dr. Simonton's research, said Dr. Rowland of the National Cancer Institute.

In 1984, he was seeking a professional climate that would be friendlier to his controversial work when he founded the Simonton Cancer Counseling Center in Pacific Palisades. The center will continue operating.

He insisted that feelings of hopelessness contribute to a hastier death.

"Most of us kill ourselves with unconscious emotional pain," he said in a 1995 interview and warned to beware of those who say there is no hope. "Label those people as ill-informed and hazardous to your health," he said.

FAREWELL TO ONE OF OUR IMAGERY PIONEERS
by Susan Ezra, RN, HNC

O. Carl Simonton, MD
We at Imagery International would like to acknowledge O.Carl Simonton, MD who died on June 18 of this year. He died at the all-too-young age of 66. The notice of his death has just recently come to our attention. With much respect, we would like to highlight his contributions to the field of mind/body medicine and mental Imagery as a powerful component of healing.

He began his exploration in the 1970's when, as a radiation oncologist, he was one of the first doctors to connect the mind with the body. His work with "terminal" cancer patients was ground-breaking at the time. He found that patients who had a positive attitude tended to live longer and have a better quality of life and ability to cope with cancer and treatment. The idea of Imagining the immune system with chemotherapy fighting the cancer was spawned from this pioneering work. The "pac man" could be visualized eating up and destroying the cancer cells. What a radical, fanciful notion! Yet people felt empowered and did better than other patients with similar diagnoses.

Two widely acclaimed books followed -- Getting Well Again (1978) and The Healing Journey (1994). The first book became a classic on the subject and the second book showed an evolution incorporating some of the science supporting mind/body medicine. The Simonton Cancer Center in Pacific Palisades continues to train practitioners internationally and offers retreats for cancer patients and their loved ones. In November of 1997, Dr. Simonton was honored by the American Medical Association for his film, Affirmations for Getting Well.

In addition to these highlights, an in-depth article will be available in the December ImagiNews. http://imageryinternational.org/imaginews.htm. To honor Dr. Simonton, please make a donation in his name to:

Dr. Noah McKay discovered the principle of non-locality, or what some people might call "the power of intention" or even "the power of prayer." And he found a way to apply it to his own health, allowing him to overcome a serious cardiovascular infection that nearly destroyed his heart. Through his journey, he arrived at a set of principles that are set forth in Wellness at Warp Speed; principles that can unleash what I call "spontaneous healing" -- a miraculous-seeming acceleration of natural healing that automatically follows the shifting of a person's belief systems.

It is beliefs, you see, that determine a person's possibilities in dealing with health challenges. People who believe in the limited options (and outdated paradigms) of conventional medicine are doomed to a life of disease and suffering. But those who free themselves from that outmoded pattern of thinking are able to tap into a whole new universe of possibilities for rapid healing. And since the body follows the mind, healing takes place almost instantly. The body literally creates a new reality based on what the mind believes. Symptoms vanish, and diseases become history.

This is what Wellness at Warp Speed teaches the reader to do. It reminds me of a case where a woman suffering from multiple personalities was diabetic in one personality, but when she flipped to her alternate personality, her blood sugar was normal. Her "disease," you see, was merely the expression of who she thought she was, and as her personality switched from one belief system to another, her body automatically followed by either turning on the disease or turning it off. There are many, many cases in medical literature where patients demonstrate nearly instant cures of cancer, for example, when given inert serums that they believe to be breakthrough anti-cancer medicines. While conventional medicine would write this off as a placebo effect, more astute observers of this situation realize this demonstrates the power of the mind to determine the health outcome expressed by the body!

Change your mind, in other words, and your body will follow. That's why real health transformation begins by shifting your belief systems.

Wellness at Warp Speed is the book that can change your mind in a positive way. Simply reading it is a transformational experience that can open you to new possibilities for health and healing -- even for near-spontaneous disease reversal. No belief system is a replacement for emergency medicine, of course, if you need acute care of a broken leg from an automobile accident, for example, but holding the right frame of mind is absolutely crucial for preventing or overcoming so-called "degenerative" diseases like cancer, Alzheimer's, diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis and others. These diseases do not exist anywhere other than in the expression of your physiology, and that's determined largely by what you hold to be true (or at least possible) in your own mind.


Epigenetics: How Your Mind (also diet, lifestyle, spirituality, attitude, determination to live and not accepting illness) Can Reprogram Your Genes
(Falling for This Myth Could Give You Cancer and other Illnesses)
By Dr. Mercola | April 11 2012
http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2012/04/11/epigenetic-vs-determinism.aspx?e_cid=20120411_DNL_art_1

Story at-a-glance:

* Science has shattered the Central Dogma of molecular biology, proving that determinism--the belief that your genes control your health--is false. You actually have a tremendous amount of control over how your genetic traits are expressed, by changing your thoughts and altering your diet and your environment

* In 1988, the experiments of John Cairns demonstrated even primitive organisms can evolve "consciously," as DNA changes in response to its environment. The cell's "consciousness" lies in its membrane, which contains receptors that pick up various environmental signals. This mechanism controls the "reading" of the genes inside the cell
The work of Dr. Bruce Lipton and other epigenetic researchers shows that the "environmental signals" also include thoughts and emotions--both of which have been shown to directly affect DNA expression

* Contrary to the Newtonian belief in your body as a biological machine, epigenetic science reveals that you are an extension of your environment, which includes everything from your thoughts and belief systems, to toxic exposures and exposure to sunlight, exercise, and, of course, everything you choose to put onto and into your body. Epigenetics shatters the idea that you are a victim of your genes, and shows that you have tremendous power to shape and direct your physical health

How much control do you really have over your own life in general, and your health in particular?

These questions have puzzled many since the beginning of time.

Now, the emerging science of epigenetics is offering some answers that put true control within your reach.

According to some scientists, changing your health may be as "simple" as changing your thoughts and beliefs.

"Contrary to what many people are being led to believe, a lot of emphasis placed on genes determining human behavior is nothing but theory and doctrine," writes Konstantin Erikseni.

"We are free to make decisions that impact our lives and those of others. ...

Our beliefs can change our biology.

We have the power to heal ourselves, increase our feelings of self-worth and improve our emotional state."

Epigenetics Shatters "The Central Dogma"
Eriksen goes on to discuss something called "The Central Dogma" of molecular biology, which states that biological information is transferred sequentially and only in one direction (from DNA to RNA to proteins).

The ramification of buying into the central dogma is that it leads to belief in absolute determinism, which leaves you utterly powerless to do anything about the health of your body; it's all driven by your genetic code, which you were born with.

However, scientists have completely shattered this dogma and proven it false. You actually have a tremendous amount of control over how your genetic traits are expressed--from how you think to what you eat and the environment you live in.

You may recall the Human Genome Projectii, which was launched in 1990 and completed in 2003. The mission was to map out all human genes and their interactions, which would than serve as the basis for curing virtually any disease. Alas, not only did they realize the human body consists of far fewer genes than previously believed, they also discovered that these genes do not operate as previously predicted.

In the featured article, Eriksen describes the experiments of John Cairns, a British molecular biologist who in 1988 produced compelling evidence that our responses to our environment determine the expression of our genes. A radical thought, for sure, but one that has been proven correct on multiple occasions since then.

Eriksen writesiii :

"Cairns took bacteria whose genes did not allow them to produce lactase, the enzyme needed to digest milk sugar, and placed them in petri dishes where the only food present was lactase. Much to his astonishment, within a few days, all of the petri dishes had been colonized by the bacteria and they were eating lactose. The bacterial DNA had changed in response to its environment. This experiment has been replicated many times and they have not found a better explanation than this obvious fact -- that even primitive organisms can evolve consciously.

So, information flows in both directions, from DNA to proteins and from proteins to DNA, contradicting the "central dogma." Genes can be activated and de-activated by signals from the environment. The consciousness of the cell is inside the cell's membrane. Each and every cell in our bodies has a type of consciousness. Genes change their expression depending on what is happening outside our cells and even outside our bodies."

Your Emotions Regulate Your Genetic Expression
As if genes changing expression in response to environmental factors such as nutrients wasn't enough, other researchers have demonstrated that this "environment" that your genes respond to also includes your conscious thoughts, emotions, and unconscious beliefs. Cellular biologist Bruce Lipton, PhD., is one of the leading authorities on how emotions can regulate genetic expression, which are explained in-depth in his excellent books The Biology of Belief, and Spontaneous Evolution.

Science has indeed taken us far beyond Newtonian physics, which says you live in a mechanical universe. According to this belief, your body is just a biological machine, so by modifying the parts of the machine, you can modify your health. Also, as a biological machine, your body is thought to respond to physical "things" like the active chemicals in drugs, and by adjusting the drugs that modify your machinery, doctors can modify and control health. However, with the advent of quantum physics, scientists have realized the flaws in Newtonian physics, as quantum physics shows us that the invisible, immaterial realm is actually far more important than the material realm. In fact, your thoughts may shape your environment far more than physical matter!

According to Dr. Lipton, the true secret to life does not lie within your DNA, but rather within the mechanisms of your cell membrane.

Each cell membrane has receptors that pick up various environmental signals, and this mechanism controls the "reading" of the genes inside your cells. Your cells can choose to read or not read the genetic blueprint depending on the signals being received from the environment. So having a "cancer program" in your DNA does not automatically mean you're destined to get cancer. Far from it. This genetic information does not ever have to be expressed...

What this all means is that you are not controlled by your genetic makeup. Instead, your genetic readout (which genes are turned "on" and which are turned "off") is primarily determined by your thoughts, attitudes, and perceptions!

The major problem with believing the myth that your genes control your life is that you become a victim of your heredity. Since you can't change your genes, it essentially means that your life is predetermined, and therefore you have very little control over your health. With any luck, modern medicine will find the gene responsible and be able to alter it, or devise some other form of drug to modify your body's chemistry, but aside from that, you're out of luck... The new science, however, reveals that your perceptions control your biology, and this places you in the driver's seat, because if you can change your perceptions, you can shape and direct your own genetic readout.

This new science also reveals that you are in fact an extension of your environment, which includes everything from your thoughts and belief systems, to toxic exposures and exposure to sunlight, exercise, and, of course, everything you choose to put onto and into your body. As Dr. Lipton is fond of saying, the new biology moves you out of victimhood and into Mastery--mastery over your own health.

It is a supreme confirmation of my favorite saying, "You Can Take Control of Your Health."

How Nutrition Alters Genetic Expression
Two years ago, a study performed by the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University was showcased at the annual Experimental Biology convention. The study demonstrated how "histone modifications" can impact the expression of many degenerative diseases, ranging from cancer and heart disease to biopolar disorder and even aging itself. According to Rod Dashwood, a professor of environmental and molecular toxicology and head of LPI's Cancer Chemoprotection Program, as quoted in a press releaseiv:

"We believe that many diseases that have aberrant gene expression at their root can be linked to how DNA is packaged, and the actions of enzymes such as histone deacetylases, or HDACs. As recently as 10 years ago we knew almost nothing about HDAC dysregulation in cancer or other diseases, but it's now one of the most promising areas of health-related research."

In a nutshell, we all have tumor suppressor genes, and these genes are capable of stopping cancer cells in their tracks. These genes are present in every cell in your body, but so are proteins called "histones." As Dr. Jean-Pierre Issa at the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center explainsv , histones can "hug" DNA so tightly that it becomes "hidden from view for the cell." If a tumor suppressor gene is hidden, it cannot be utilized, and in this way too much histone will "turn off" these cancer suppressors, and allow cancer cells to proliferate.

Now here's where epigenetics comes in ... certain foods, such as broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables, garlic, and onions contain substances that act as histone inhibitors, which essentially block the histone, allowing your tumor suppressor genes to activate and fight cancer. By regularly consuming these foods, you are naturally supporting your body's ability to fight tumors.

Certain alternative oncologists also tap directly into the epigenetic mechanism, such as Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez, who uses a three-pronged approach to cancer based primarily on nutrition and detoxification, and Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski, who treats cancer with a gene-targeted approach. His treatment uses non-toxic peptides and amino acids, known as antineoplastons, which act as genetic switches that turn your tumor suppressor genes "on."

A Healthy Lifestyle Supports Healthy Genetic Expression
So the good news is that you are in control of your genes ... You can alter them on a regular basis, depending on the foods you eat, the air you breathe, and the thoughts you think. It's your environment and lifestyle that dictates your tendency to express disease, and this new realization is set to make major waves in the future of disease prevention -- including one day educating people on how to fight disease at the epigenetic level. When a disease occurs, the solution, according to epigenetic therapy, is simply to "remind" your affected cells (change its environmental instructions) of its healthy function, so they can go back to being normal cells instead of diseased cells.

You can begin to do this on your own, long before you manifest a disease. By leading a healthy lifestyle, with high quality nutrition, exercise, limited exposure to toxins, and a positive mental attitude, you encourage your genes to express positive, disease-fighting behaviors.

This is what preventive medicine is all about. It's not about taking any one particular nutrient as a supplement to fix one specific "part" of your biological machinery... The more people become willing to embrace this simple truth, the healthier everyone will get.

It's also worth pointing out that epigenetic effects begin before birth.

Epigenetic research from 2009 showed that rat fetuses receiving poor nutrition in the womb become genetically primed for a nutrition-poor environment. As a result of this genetic adaptation, the rats tended to be smaller. They were also at higher risk for a host of health problems throughout their lives, such as diabetes, growth retardation, cardiovascular disease, obesity, and neurodevelopmental delays. Again, while some are tempted to blame such "predispositions" on bad genes, the KEY factor is nutrition, i.e. the cellular environment.

If you're ready to address your dietary choices, read through my comprehensive nutrition plan, which will give you tips and tools for eating healthy, dealing with stress, and living a lifestyle that will support your epigenetic health.

You can also turn your genes off and on with your emotions too. Many, if not most people carry emotional scars; traumas that can adversely affect health. Using techniques like energy psychology, you can go in and correct the trauma and help regulate your genetic expression. My favorite technique for this is the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), but there are many others. Choose whichever one appeals to you, and if you don't sense any benefits, try another, until you find what works best for you.

Please, remember that 'You CAN Take Control of Your Health.'

Forget the Genome: The Epigenome Is Where It's At
Chris Wood, Senior Analyst
http://www.caseyresearch.com/cdd/forget-the-genome-the-epigenome-is-where-its-at

"Today we are learning the language in which God created life."

That's a quote from US President Bill Clinton on June 26, 2000 when a rough draft of the human genome was announced to widespread, international fanfare. Clinton was certainly not the only one to make big claims about the Human Genome Project (HGP). Journalists and politicians throughout the developed world heralded that the results would lead to "the end of disease." Of course, things are never that simple.

Little did the community know at the time that the project would only uncover a small portion of what's really going on in our genes. They were only scratching the surface. What the architects of that project once dismissed literally as junk surrounding our genes is proving far more vital than anyone ever expected-in fact, it may hold the very keys to understanding evolution itself.

When scientists began the HGP, they were expecting to find approximately 100,000 protein-coding genes to account for the complexity of our species. What they found instead was that humans only have about 25,000, about the same number as fish and mice. In fact, according to biologist Dr. Michael Skinner, "the human genome is probably not as complex and doesn't have as many genes as plants do."

That's sort of a problem, because if we humans are supposed to be the complex species we hold ourselves out to be, then why don't we have as many genes as an oak tree? Maybe because genes are only part of the story.

Clinical geneticist Marcus Pembrey thought so... and long before the genome was ever mapped.

Back in the early 1980s, Pembrey headed the clinical genetics department at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children in London, where he treated families with unusual genetic conditions.

According to Pembrey, "We were constantly coming across families which didn't fit the rules and didn't fit any of the patterns that genetics were supposed to fit."

The most tantalizing example was the paradox shown by two incredibly rare and separate genetic disorders: Angelman syndrome, and Prader-Willi syndrome. These two completely different diseases were eventually chased down to their genetic roots. Astonishingly, they were both caused by the same genetic defect, a certain sequence of DNA that was deleted from chromosome 15.

How could this be? How could the same deletion, the same genetic abnormality, cause two completely different diseases?

When Pembrey dug into the inheritance pattern for the conditions, he came across something remarkable. It was the origin of the mutation, not the change alone, that determined which disease would manifest itself.

We all receive a set of chromosomes from each of our parents. If the deletion was on the chromosome 15 that the child inherited from the father, then he or she would be born with Prader-Willi syndrome. If, however, the deletion was on the chromosome 15 that the child inherited from the mother, he or she would be born with Angelman syndrome. It's as if the chromosome 15 knows where it came from.

This might not sound profound. But what Pembrey stumbled upon showed for the first time in humans that there is more to inheritance than simply the coded sequence of DNA, and that something other than genes was being passed between generations.

Discoveries like Pembrey's helped spawn a budding area of science-epigenetics-that aims to answer just how much of "us" comes from outside our genes.

Epigenetics could help explain how a complex human, capable of language and mathematics and philosophy, can be created with only 25,000 genes. It could help us better understand what causes disease and provide us with a wealth of new opportunities for drug discovery and development in areas such as cancer, diabetes, and neurodegenerative disorders.

The best way to begin to explain epigenetics, which literally means "on or above genetics, is with an analogy. Think of your genome-your DNA-as like the hardware of a computer. Your epigenome is much like the software, which tells the hardware what to do. It's the epigenome that tells our cells what sort of cells they should be -- a skin cell, a heart cell, etc. All these cells have the same genes, but your epigenome decides how much or whether some genes are expressed in different cells in your body.

Here's a very simplified explanation of how this works:

The human body contains billions (if not trillions) of cells. Each of these cells (apart from red blood cells and reproductive cells) contains your DNA, the blueprint of your genetic code. But just because the cells have the DNA doesn't mean that they know what to do with it. So they receive outside instructions from organic compounds called methyl groups. The methyl groups bind to the DNA in different ways and tell it things like "don't express this gene" or "do express this gene." They also bind differently to a skin cell versus a heart cell, for example; that's one of the ways that a skin cell knows it's a skin cell and a heart cell knows it's a heart cell.

In addition to methyl groups, epigenetics is also controlled by histones, proteins that function basically like spools that the DNA wraps itself around. These histones can change how tightly or loosely the DNA is wound around them. The more tightly wound, the less the gene can express, and vice versa. In other words, methyl groups act like gene switches, turning them on and off, while the histones are more like a dial that controls the volume (i.e., the degree to which the gene is expressed).

Distinct methylation and histone patterns exist in every cell to tell it what to do, which constitutes a sort of second genome that we call the epigenome.

What's particularly interesting about the epigenome is that, unlike the genome, it's dynamic. While epigenetic instructions do pass on as cells divide, they can change throughout your life based on environmental factors, what we eat, and how we live-and these changes can apparently (though not conclusively proven yet) be passed on to our children and our children's children.

Since these epigenetic tags decide what genes get expressed and to what degree, the implications of a dynamic epigenome are profound.

As geneticist Randy Jirtle puts it:

"We've got to get people thinking more about what they do. They have a responsibility for their epigenome. Their genome they inherit. But their epigenome, they potentially can alter, and particularly that of their children. And that brings in responsibility, but it also brings in hope. You're not necessarily stuck with this. You can alter this."

At the end of the day, epigenetics might sound like sort of a buzzkill because if the current thinking is right, it would make it tough to ever enjoy another guilt-free French fry, cocktail, or fine cigar. But with the bad comes the good.

For example, mounting evidence suggests that certain types of cancer and other diseases are caused by misplaced or missing epigenetic tags; scientists are hard at work developing drugs to silence some of those "bad" genes that were supposed to be turned off in the first place.

We're already seeing the archaic days of genetic modification give way to much more subtle and precise forms of genetic medicine, like the temporary genetic suppression available in the first generation of RNAi therapies just now coming to market-a trend we have followed to great profitability in Casey Extraordinary Technology. Now, we can only hope that epigenetics follows the same amazing curve of advancement that the HGP unleashed for genetics. If it does, the possibilities are extraordinary.

*** What You Can Do ***
Researchers Show How Your Thoughts Can Change Your Genes
Posted on December 6, 2013 by Deus Nexus
http://deusnexus.wordpress.com/2013/12/06/specific-molecular-changes/
Reposted from: Waking Times. | By Michael Forrester
http://www.wakingtimes.com/2013/12/05/researchers-finally-show-mindfulness-thoughts-can-induce-specific-molecular-changes-genes/

With evidence growing that training the mind or inducing specific modes of consciousness can have beneficial health effects, scientists have sought to understand how these practices physically affect the body. A new study by researchers in Wisconsin, Spain, and France reports the first evidence of specific molecular changes in the body following a period of intensive mindfulness practice.

The study investigated the effects of a day of intensive mindfulness practice in a group of experienced meditators, compared to a group of untrained control subjects who engaged in quiet non-meditative activities. After eight hours of mindfulness practice, the meditators showed a range of genetic and molecular differences, including altered levels of gene-regulating machinery and reduced levels of pro-inflammatory genes, which in turn correlated with faster physical recovery from a stressful situation.

"To the best of our knowledge, this is the first paper that shows rapid alterations in gene expression within subjects associated with mindfulness meditation practice," says study author Richard J. Davidson, founder of the Center for Investigating Healthy Minds and the William James and Vilas Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

"Most interestingly, the changes were observed in genes that are the current targets of anti-inflammatory and analgesic drugs," says Perla Kaliman, first author of the article and a researcher at the Institute of Biomedical Research of Barcelona, Spain (IIBB-CSIC-IDIBAPS), where the molecular analyses were conducted.

The study was published in the Journal Psychoneuroendocrinology.
http://www.journals.elsevier.com/psychoneuroendocrinology/

Mindfulness-based trainings have shown beneficial effects on inflammatory disorders in prior clinical studies and are endorsed by the American Heart Association as a preventative intervention. The new results provide a possible biological mechanism for therapeutic effects.

Gene Activity Can Change According To Perception

According to Dr. Bruce Lipton, gene activity can change on a daily basis. If the perception in your mind is reflected in the chemistry of your body, and if your nervous system reads and interprets the environment and then controls the blood's chemistry, then you can literally change the fate of your cells by altering your thoughts.

In fact, Dr. Lipton's research illustrates that by changing your perception, your mind can alter the activity of your genes and create over thirty thousand variations of products from each gene. He gives more detail by saying that the gene programs are contained within the nucleus of the cell, and you can rewrite those genetic programs through changing your blood chemistry.

In the simplest terms, this means that we need to change the way we think if we are to heal cancer. "The function of the mind is to create coherence between our beliefs and the reality we experience," Dr. Lipton said. "What that means is that your mind will adjust the body's biology and behavior to fit with your beliefs. If you've been told you'll die in six months and your mind believes it, you most likely will die in six months. That's called the nocebo effect, the result of a negative thought, which is the opposite of the placebo effect, where healing is mediated by a positive thought."

That dynamic points to a three-party system: there's the part of you that swears it doesn't want to die (the conscious mind), trumped by the part that believes you will (the doctor's prognosis mediated by the subconscious mind), which then throws into gear the chemical reaction (mediated by the brain's chemistry) to make sure the body conforms to the dominant belief. (Neuroscience has recognized that the subconscious controls 95 percent of our lives.)

Now what about the part that doesn't want to die--the conscious mind? Isn't it impacting the body's chemistry as well? Dr. Lipton said that it comes down to how the subconscious mind, which contains our deepest beliefs, has been programmed. It is these beliefs that ultimately cast the deciding vote.

"It's a complex situation," said Dr. Lipton. People have been programmed to believe that they're victims and that they have no control. We're programmed from the start with our mother and father's beliefs. So, for instance, when we got sick, we were told by our parents that we had to go to the doctor because the doctor is the authority concerning our health. We all got the message throughout childhood that doctors were the authority on health and that we were victims of bodily forces beyond our ability to control. The joke, however, is that people often get better while on the way to the doctor. That's when the innate ability for self-healing kicks in, another example of the placebo effect.

Mindfulness Practice Specifically Affects Regulatory Pathways

The results of Davidson's study show a down-regulation of genes that have been implicated in inflammation. The affected genes include the pro-inflammatory genes RIPK2 and COX2 as well as several histone deacetylase (HDAC) genes, which regulate the activity of other genes epigenetically by removing a type of chemical tag. What's more, the extent to which some of those genes were downregulated was associated with faster cortisol recovery to a social stress test involving an impromptu speech and tasks requiring mental calculations performed in front of an audience and video camera.

Biologists have suspected for years that some kind of epigenetic inheritance occurs at the cellular level. (http://preventdisease.com/news/11/032811_nutrition_epigenetics.shtml) The different kinds of cells in our bodies provide an example. Skin cells and brain cells have different forms and functions, despite having exactly the same DNA. There must be mechanisms--other than DNA--that make sure skin cells stay skin cells when they divide.

Perhaps surprisingly, the researchers say, there was no difference in the tested genes between the two groups of people at the start of the study. The observed effects were seen only in the meditators following mindfulness practice. In addition, several other DNA-modifying genes showed no differences between groups, suggesting that the mindfulness practice specifically affected certain regulatory pathways.

The key result is that meditators experienced genetic changes following mindfulness practice that were not seen in the non-meditating group after other quiet activities - an outcome providing proof of principle that mindfulness practice can lead to epigenetic alterations of the genome.

Previous studies in rodents and in people have shown dynamic epigenetic responses to physical stimuli such as stress, diet, or exercise within just a few hours.

"Our genes are quite dynamic in their expression and these results suggest that the calmness of our mind can actually have a potential influence on their expression," Davidson says.

"The regulation of HDACs and inflammatory pathways may represent some of the mechanisms underlying the therapeutic potential of mindfulness-based interventions," Kaliman says. "Our findings set the foundation for future studies to further assess meditation strategies for the treatment of chronic inflammatory conditions."

Subconscious Beliefs Are Key

Too many positive thinkers know that thinking good thoughts--and reciting affirmations for hours on end--doesn't always bring about the results that feel-good books promise.

Dr. Lipton didn't argue this point, because positive thoughts come from the conscious mind, while contradictory negative thoughts are usually programmed in the more powerful subconscious mind.

"The major problem is that people are aware of their conscious beliefs and behaviors, but not of subconscious beliefs and behaviors. Most people don't even acknowledge that their subconscious mind is at play, when the fact is that the subconscious mind is a million times more powerful than the conscious mind and that we operate 95 to 99 percent of our lives from subconscious programs.

"Your subconscious beliefs are working either for you or against you, but the truth is that you are not controlling your life, because your subconscious mind supersedes all conscious control. So when you are trying to heal from a conscious level--citing affirmations and telling yourself you're healthy--there may be an invisible subconscious program that's sabotaging you."

The power of the subconscious mind is elegantly revealed in people expressing multiple personalities. While occupying the mind-set of one personality, the individual may be severely allergic to strawberries. Then, in experiencing the mind-set of another personality, he or she eats them without consequence.

The new science of epigenetics promises that every person on the planet has the opportunity to become who they really are, complete with unimaginable power and the ability to operate from, and go for, the highest possibilities, including healing our bodies and our culture and living in peace.

The Power of the Mind
http://www.naturalhealth365.com/emotional_wellness/the-power-of-the-mind.html
[syn: epigenome, epigenetics, Reiki]

The Biology of Belief -- Unleashing the Power of Consciousness, Matter and Miracles is a book that brings attention to the amazing new awareness that is currently rewriting the science of biology and medicine.

Until recently, conventional science has held that genes control life, a concept known as genetic determinism. While this disempowering belief is still held as truth by the mainstream public, leading edge research in the exciting new field of epigenetics reveals a completely different truth.

Genes do not control life. It is the environment, and more specifically, our perception of the environment that controls gene activity. In the end, it comes down to a simple case of mind over matter in controlling the fate of our lives.

Dr. Bruce Lipton's Amazing Discovery!

His research on cloned stem cells, initiated over forty years ago, revealed the mechanisms by which perceptions created in the mind control the lives and fate of the 50 trillion living cells that comprise our bodies.

Thought processes cause the brain to release information-containing neurochemical and vibrational signals that are sent to the cells. Signals sent by the brain are translated into biological responses in the cell through the action of protein perception switches built into the cell skin (membrane). The membrane proteins that read and respond to these environmental signals are called receptors.

It was through his study of membrane receptors that he was led to an awareness that would radically transform his life. Though he sought science as an alternate to accepting spiritual truths, lessons learned from his stem cell cultures revealed that life was not an issue of science OR spirituality, it was an amalgam of science AND spirituality. The reasoning behind his transformation from scientist to spiritual scientist is described in the following excerpt from the Biology of Belief.

Spirit and Science by Dr. Bruce Liption

Conclusions drawn in the previous chapters of the book are based upon a quarter of a century of studying cloned cells and are grounded in the astonishing new discoveries that are rewriting our understanding of the mysteries of life. The conclusions I offer in this Epilogue are also based upon my scientific training they do not spring from a leap of religious faith. I know conventional scientists may shy away from them, because they involve Spirit, but I am confident in presenting them for two reasons.

One reason is a philosophical and scientific rule called Occam's razor. Occam's razor holds that when several hypotheses are offered to explain a phenomenon, the simplest hypothesis that accounts for most of the observations is the most likely hypothesis and should be considered first.

The new science of the magical mem-Brain in conjunction with the principles of quantum physics offer the simplest explanation that accounts for the science of not only allopathic medicine, but also for the philosophy and practice of complementary medicine and spiritual healing as well. Also, after so many years of personally applying the science I have outlined in this book, I can attest to its power to change lives.

However, I concede that while science led me to my euphoric moment of insight, the experience resembled instantaneous conversions described by mystics. Remember the biblical story of Saul who was knocked off his horse with a lightning bolt? For me, there was no lightning bolt that came forth from the Caribbean skies.

But I ran wild-eyed into the medical library because the nature of the cell's membrane that was downloaded into my awareness in the wee hours of the morning convinced me that we are immortal, spiritual beings who exist separately from our bodies. I had heard an undeniable inner voice informing me that I was leading a life based not only on the false premise that genes control biology, but also on the false premise that we end when our physical bodies die.

I had spent years studying molecular control mechanisms within the physical body and at that astounding moment came to realize that the protein switches that control life are primarily turned on and off by signals from the environment the Universe.

You may be surprised that it was science that led me to that moment of spiritual insight. In scientific circles, the word spirit is as warmly embraced as the word evolution is in fundamentalist circles. As you know, spiritualists and scientists approach life in vastly different ways. When life is out of whack for spiritualists, they beseech God or some other invisible force for relief. When life is out of whack for scientists, they run to the medicine cabinet for a chemical. It is only with a drug like Rolaids that they are able to spell relief.

The fact that science led me to spiritual insight is appropriate because the latest discoveries in physics and cell research are forging new links between the worlds of Science and Spirit. These realms were split apart in the days of Descartes centuries ago. However, I truly believe that only when Spirit and Science are reunited will we be afforded the means to create a better world.

Accelerated healing with the power of the mind
http://www.naturalhealth365.com/cancer_treatments/healing-intention.html
[syn: epigenome, epigenetics, Reiki]

Research suggests that simply thinking about exercise can increase the strength of your muscles. Can you imagine how much influence your mind has over your life? The results may surprise you.

Recently, a study was conducted comparing people who went to the gym with people who carried out mental workouts in their head. The people who actually did exercise increased their muscle strength by 30% while those performing (only) "virtual workouts" in their mind -- increased muscle strength by almost half as much!

Lead researcher Guang Yue, an exercise psychologist at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation in Ohio had volunteers between 20 and 35 years old imagine flexing one of their biceps as hard as they could 5x a week during daily training sessions. He ensured that the participants were not doing any physical exercise. So what do you think happened? (keep reading)

The mind has a powerful effect on physical outcomes. The researchers discovered a 13.5% increase in muscle size and strength after just a few weeks of visual imagery. These results remained for 3 months after the virtual training stopped. (wow!)

Mental imagery has been shown to be just as effective in helping people overcome chronic health conditions. Imagine using the mind to reverse conditions like high blood pressure or fibromyalgia. These "visualization" techniques have also been used to reduce the side effects of chemotherapy and eliminate pain.

Psychologist Jeanne Archterberg of the institute for Transpersonal Psychology in California, used mental imagery to heal herself of a rare cancer of the eye. Excited by her results, Archterberg studied cancer patients and found that patients with the greatest success of healing were those who had the ability to visualize vividly, practice regularly, and hold a clear visual intention.

How to turn your genes "on" or "off"

The science of "Epigenetics" demonstrates that genes turn on or off depending upon their environment. And, happily, we are seeing more (and more) conventional medical doctors embracing this understanding. If you study Epigenetics -- you'll come to realize why natural (wholistic) therapies can be so effective!

Don't ever believe that you are a victim of your genetics. Dr. Bruce Lipton, author of The Biology of Belief has demonstrated that genes and DNA do not control our biology; that instead DNA is controlled by signals from the cells outside the environment. Naturally, your thoughts, feelings and emotions play a significant role in cellular health.

Your belief system has power over your physical reality. Weather these beliefs are true or false, positive or negative -- they are communicated to every cell in your body and have the power to heal or threathen your life!

Bernie Siegel, M.D., former cancer surgeon and best-selling author of Love, Medicine and Miracles has been teaching people about the power of the mind for decades. Dr. Siegel has helped countless (cancer) patients to experience the joy of "spontaneous remission" by simply changing their attitude and belief system.

On a recent trip to California, I had the pleasure of meeting Jay Kordich, the father of juicing. At age 25, Jay was diagnosed with bladder cancer and cured himself by changing his lifestyle habits. Jay knows first hand how proper nutrition (and the right attitude) can turn off the genes responsible for disease.

I've also had the pleasure of spending time with Charlotte Gerson, daughter of the great physician Max Gerson. Charlotte teaches that when the body is stressed due to poor nutrition, chemicals in the food, and toxins in the environment the genes that cause disease turn on and express themselves. She also believes that our thoughts and emotions play a significant role in our ability to reverse disease.

How to control the Matrix
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VyCiL8ql7bs
I can't help but feel duped! The way the powers that be have tried to separate us through lies and propaganda. They deliberately set this world up so they would thrive and prosper at our expense. They kept important information on how to control this world from us so they could enslave us. They know how this all works and we see proof of that at Bohemian Grove and on mainstream media. I uploaded this in hopes that people will be able to get their power back. It is like going back to school here but with real information that will aid us in taking back our planet. All information in this video can be researched online but Gregg does a great job of making it all easier for us. If we had this information from the start they would have never been able to have this much control over us.

The Power of Our Beliefs
Posted By Dr. Ben Kim Emotional Health and Well-Being

Originally published in March, 2009
http://drbenkim.com/power-of-beliefs.htm

Late last year, I started playing tennis again after a hiatus of several years from regular play. It took me a few sessions to get my wind back, but all in all, it's been amazingly fun to be back out on the courts. I feel younger, stronger, and healthier than I have in several years.

My return to playing tennis has been a good reminder for me on the power that our beliefs have to influence the quality of our health and lives. To elaborate, I need to share some details from the road that my wife and I have traveled.

About a year prior to getting married, I put everything that I had - physically, emotionally, and financially - into starting my own chiropractic, acupuncture, and fasting clinic. I was fully committed to creating a clinic that would allow me to provide the kind of health care that I was passionate about, and my schedule was such a non-stop blur that the clearest memory I have of that first year was sleeping for a few hours at a time on my chiropractic table.

After that exhausting first year, Margaret and I got married and immediately moved to a larger home that could accommodate more fasting guests. Funds weren't plentiful, so we didn't even consider going on a honeymoon. We took about a week and half after our wedding to get the new clinic ready, and before we knew it, we were newlyweds with fasting guests to care for.

Our quality and frequency of sleep didn't improve with the arrival of our first son. Thankfully, his presence injected us with all the energy we needed to love him fully and joyfully while running the clinic.

And before we knew it, we were greeted by our second child, a boy with more energy and natural fighting spirit than Ali had in his prime.

When it was just us and our firstborn, we all slept together on a few mattresses in a single room. And when our second son arrived, we decided to go one-on-one, with Margaret sleeping with our youngest in a different room, and me staying with our toddler. Today, the four of us sleep together on four mattresses that cover the floor of our master bedroom, as our boys have become used to being with us at night, and it doesn't quite feel right to have them sleep on their own just yet.

What I'm getting at is that over the past several years, I can accurately say that I haven't had the time to go out even once a week to let loose on a tennis court. And the same can be said for Margaret and her lack of "me" time. Personally, I don't regret the sacrifices, because I feel that I have used my time and energy for the best possible purposes in caring for our family and devoting the rest of my time to work. I'm sure that Margaret feels the same way.

Last November, an old university friend named Mike visited from New Zealand, and for old time's sake, I took Mike to a local indoor tennis court to show him a good time - Mike and I have shared a love for tennis for as long as we've known each other. Though my lungs were on fire, it was great fun to knock the fuzz off the ball again.

As we were driving home, Mike asked me if I planned on building on our outing and getting out on a weekly basis. I remember answering right away, saying that there was no way I could do this. Despite being on a sabbatical from our fasting program, I still work 40 to 60 hours a week, and when I'm not working, I'm with Margaret and the boys, I explained.

Mike persisted, and asked me if I truly couldn't find just one day a week to take a break and have some fun on the courts. Though I said once again that it was out of the question, Mike's suggestion lingered over the next few days.

And the more I contemplated why I believed it was impossible for me to play a little tennis, I began to realize that I felt a lot of guilt towards Margaret. I felt guilty about not being able to give her a honeymoon. I felt guilty about working 60 to 80 hours a week during the first few years of our marriage. And I felt guilty about her caring for our boys for most of the day while I continued to work. Though I work hard when I work, I consider caring for children to be the hardest work around - much harder than writing, researching, doing consultations, and giving a few treatments here and there.

Because of my guilt, I had a deep rooted belief that the right thing for me to do was to avoid all activities except work and spending time with the family. On some level, I think I even felt that Margaret would resent my getting out to play tennis once a week because of everything she does to care for our family, but ultimately, the real cause of me not getting out was my guilt.

After sorting through and identifying these feelings, I shared them with Margaret. And sharing brought us even closer, because I could tell from her reaction that she thought I was crazy for not taking time to have fun with a sport that I love so much.

To create a plan that would help both of us experience more fun and physical well-being, we agreed that I would aim to get out to play tennis a few times a week, while she would shoot to go to the local community center for various fitness classes a few times a week while I played with the boys.

It's been several months now since we came up with our "fitness and fun" plan, and I'm happy to say that both of us are feeling as well as I think may be possible for parents of two young ones. A real bonus has been meeting and befriending some talented tennis players who also happen to be really good people. And Margaret is building momentum to return to her true love, taekwondo (a Korean martial art).

Getting back to the point of this post, my return to playing tennis has been an important reminder for me to be on the lookout for limiting beliefs that are keeping me from living as meaningfully as possible. For several years, much of my behavior was dictated by the belief that I didn't deserve to have some down time, and the belief that if I did try to make some time to play tennis, that my wife would think I was being selfish.

My beliefs weren't rooted in reality, and they hindered the quality of my life and my capacity to share my best attributes with those around me. I wasn't walking around all grumpy and mean, but now that I'm making time to have some fun with tennis, I have more energy and positive spirit in the tank to share with everyone in my life.

This experience has me ready to evaluate all other areas of my life that don't quite feel right, and to see if I'm holding on to limiting beliefs that aren't serving me and those around me well.

I realize that going on a honeymoon and getting out a couple times a week to play tennis are luxuries that many in our world can't afford, and I don't want to be insensitive to this reality. I do feel, however, that every person in this world contributes to creating his or her destiny, and a huge determinant of what we create is the set of beliefs that we consciously or subconsciously adopt.

I strongly believe that these thoughts on the power of our beliefs are relevant to every person's journey to better health.

Here are some of the limiting beliefs that I've encountered in patients and clients that I've worked with over the years:

"I was destined to have breast cancer because my mother had breast cancer. To be realistic, I'll probably die before I'm 50, just like my mother did. It's in my genes."

"I can't afford to eat the right way. It's not fair that only rich people get access to the stuff that really works."

"This health problem is God's way of punishing me for what I did in the past."

"My doctor said that there's no known cause or cure."

"It doesn't matter what I do or what I eat - I simply cannot lose weight."

"I can't exercise because ______________."

"I'm ugly and nobody likes me."

"I'm stupid and nobody likes me."

"I'll never find someone I can share my life with."

"I just can't trust anyone anymore."

Some of the beliefs listed above may not seem related to specific health challenges, but the truth is that every belief we carry about every aspect of lives impacts our health. We can never be at our best if we have significant friction in even one area of our lives.

I hope that this post serves as encouragement to think about the ways in which limiting beliefs are affecting your health and overall quality of life.

Title: How to Identify and Transform Limiting Beliefs

As a follow up to my post on the power of our beliefs, (http://drbenkim.com/power-of-beliefs.htm) I'd like to share an experience that I had with identifying and transforming a belief that caused chronic anxiety in my earlier years.

When my sisters and I were growing up, my parents were usually too busy making a living to spend much time us, but they made sure that we went to church every Sunday and were well aware of Christian values. My mom likes to tell me that she took me to church from the first week I was born.

The one major belief that going to church planted deep in my belly was this:

If I misbehave, God will punish me, and if live properly, God will bless me.

Though I'm sure that this belief helped me stay out of serious trouble when I was younger, it caused me to live with fear and guilt. I was usually afraid that God would hurt me in some way for my most recent transgression, and I often felt guilty because I believed that God could read my mind, and that He disapproved of some of the things I did when I was on my own.

Believe it or not, I lived with this mindset until I was in my early 20's. If you weren't raised in an ultra conservative Christian family, you might not be able to imagine the magnitude of the fear and guilt that I felt, but I can accurately say that my belief in God's intent to punish or reward in real time was a dark cloud that loomed over me every day.

I don't quite remember exactly when I identified and transformed this limiting belief. But I do remember the huge sense of relief that filled my spirit once I really connected with an alternative belief about my relationship with God. My new belief was in perfect alignment with everything about Christianity and life that made sense to me, and went something like this:

God has designed life so that there are perfect consequences for all of our actions.

Here are some examples of what this belief dictates:

If I try in earnest to have compassion for others, and do my best to understand others when they share their feelings with me, people around me will feel cared about, and they will likely care about me in return.

If I work diligently and try to improve the quality of other people's lives, I'll feel emotionally fulfilled as I strive to make a living to provide for my family.

If I read books and follow other media that enforce positive values like being thoughtful, generous, diligent, responsible, and honest, I should become better at displaying these characteristics with each passing year.

If I consistently talk poorly of others behind their backs, I'll become known as a gossip monger and will not earn the trust and respect of those around me.

If I put making money ahead of striving to create real value for the people I serve, I won't experience the feelings associated with making a positive difference in other people's lives, which, according to another one of my beliefs, translates to an empty, lonely existence.

If I don't actively seek to be the type of person I'd like to see my children marry one day, I'm more likely to allow difficult circumstances to cause me to behave poorly.

Perfect consequences for all of our actions - near as I can tell, this belief applies to every aspect of life, including health. If I regularly eat fresh plant foods, get enough physical rest, work on having healthy relationships, stay physically active, and minimize my exposure to toxins, I can expect to enjoy my best health. If I don't do one or more of the above, I can expect to be one or more notches removed from my best health.

The bottom line for me is this: my belief in there being perfect consequences for all of our actions, coupled with our gifts of free will and conscience serve to make my image of God a loving, omniscient, and truly omnipotent force. I no longer believe that God is counting the hairs on my head, waiting to strike down and cause me to sprain my ankle if I swear on the tennis court. If I'm miserable on the tennis court, God's perfect consequence for my choice to be miserable is poor emotional health and an inability to have fun with something that should be all about promoting good health and having fun. (For the record, I don't swear on the tennis court. :))

Also for the record, if you're most comfortable considering yourself an agnostic or atheist, I hope that you're connecting with the main idea here: that a personal belief that I adopted when I was younger wasn't helping me feel healthy and well balanced, and over time, I was able to replace this belief with one that I connected with on all levels, and that promotes peace of mind that comes from knowing that I'm making the most of my time and abilities.

And the last official note for the record since I know some Christians reading this post are wondering, I do consider myself to be a Christian, but as I think everyone knows, there are all sorts of Christians. I'm a Matthew-chapter-five-through-seven kinda Christian. And throw some James in there, too. That's the book of Matthew, chapters five, six, and seven, which represent Jesus's sermon on the mount, plus the message of "faith without good deeds is dead" from the book of James.

So getting back to the purpose of this post, how can you go about identifying and transforming any limiting beliefs that may be hurting your health and overall quality of life? This may not be easy to do because most limiting beliefs are subconsciously at work, and were likely acquired when we were growing up. But there are a few key steps that you can go through to shed clarity on any limiting beliefs that you may be holding on to.

First, identify an area of your life that you don't feel good about.

Second, ask yourself: Why can't I overcome this challenge? The answer that pops into your head is likely a limiting belief.

Third, think about your limiting belief and ask yourself if you really believe it - are you absolutely sure that it's true?

If you aren't absolutely sure that your limiting belief is objective and true, then try to come up with an alternative belief that fits with everything you know and have experienced, and that makes you feel hopeful about overcoming the challenge in mind.

Once you have identified an empowering belief, stitch it into your life. Beliefs are like muscles in that they become stronger with regular exercise, and in the case of your beliefs, you exercise them by thinking, writing, and even talking about them.




7 Herb Formula - Essiac

The Seven Herb Story: “The Fascinating History of How 7 Herb Formula Was Developed”

The Ancient Ojibway Indian Formula
Dr. Bill Maclean has been working with Jim Feijo of Daniel Chapter One in order to improve an ancient North American Indian Tribe’s herbal formula that has been used for decades in Canada.  A Canadian registered nurse, Renee Caisse, first learned of the Ojibway herbal tea in the 1920’s, from a patient.  Renee Caisse then gave it to her aunt who has the same health need.
 
The Secret Formula of President Kennedy’s Personal Physician
According to Dr. Maclean, the late Dr. Charles Brusch – President John F. Kennedy’s personal physician – improved upon the Ojibway formula.  Dr. Brusch reportedly used Renee Caisse’s formula on himself with success, and then conducted clinical trials on it, with both mice and people, with positive results.  Dr. Maclean entered into an agreement with Dr. Brusch and obtained Renee Caisse’s much improved formula.

7 Herb Formula Is Born
The old four-herb formula, Dr. Maclean states, has been improved upon to make it more efficacious and safe.  He added two more herbs to the formula and tripled the amount of herbs used to make the product.  Jim Feijo added a seventh herb to the formula, perfecting the concentrated herbal remedy.

Why 7 Herb Formula?
Dr. Maclean also improved the processing of the herbs to maintain the maximum therapeutic value from each herb.  It was Jim Feijo of Daniel Chapter One who came up with the 7 Herb Formula that included Eleutherococcus senticosus (Eleuthero), an adaptogenic, tonifying herb, to help the body adapt to internal and external stress.  The compounds in Eleuthero have demonstrated a wide variety of benefits.  By using Dr. Macleans’s precise preparation procedures and adding Eleuthero to the improved formula of Renee Caisse and Dr. Brusch, Daniel Chapter One’s 7 Herb Formula is in a class by itself.

The Truth Is Out There
Jim Feijo, the Daniel Chapter One founder stated:  “We can’t, by law, make any claims.  We allow those who are living healthier lives to give their testimony as to how well 7 Herb Formula works.  These are truly wonderful and inspiring stories.  The truth is out there, living and breathing.”

The above testimonials have been modified from their original submissions. To comply with an FTC order, Daniel Chapter One was forced to remove any and all health claims, expressed or implied. Because many of the testimonials we receive contain statements by our customers that imply a health claim, we are required to remove such statements to make them compliant.
For more information about our Health Freedom Fight, please visit www.dc1ministry.com

For decades, thousands of people have used 7 Herb Formula to help them support their body’s natural state of health.

We are proud of the work we do and would like to share these testimonials to glorify Yahweh, the God of all creation. However, we are only able to share these partial statements because the U.S. Government has prohibited us from sharing them in their entirety. In doing so, they have denied you the right and freedom to hear them. For this we are very sorry, however, we hope that the remainder of these stories will help you see that 7 Herb Formula has been very important to many.

“We can’t, by law, make any health claims.  We allow those who are now living normal lives to give their testimony as to how well 7 herb Formula™ works.  These are truly wonderful and inspiring stories.  The truth is out there, living and breathing.”

“The 7 Herbs”
7 Herb Formula is an example of God-given herbs that have been used for thousands of years. Through divine revelation and human experience the knowledge of these herbs and many others have been gathered and passed down from generation to generation.  The herbs are harvested from various regions around the world and meticulously prepared.

Sheep Sorrel
Rich in vitamins, minerals and trace elements, high in life-giving properties. It nourishes the glandular system, and is known to help support healthy skin and mucous membranes such as the lining of the stomach or duodenum.

Cat’s Claw
An herb from the Peruvian rainforest. Its inner bark, which is in 7 Herb Formula, is one of the most powerful cleansers of the intestinal tract. It is also an antioxidant and supports healthy inflammatory response and a healthy immune system.

Watercress
The same plant used for salad greens and garnishes, is an excellent cleanser in the body and supports healthy mucous membranes including the stomach lining.  Supports healthy kidneys and joints.

Eleuthero (formerly called Siberian Ginseng)
An herbal “tonic” with restorative power due to its glycoside content. Glycosides are natural phytochemicals that initiate the body’s stress response, helping to support a healthy immune system. Eleuthero also produces saponins, steroids found in plants, which have positive effects on cells.

Slippery Elm
According to herbalist Jethro Kloss, should be used in all stomach troubles because of its ability to strengthen and nourish the stomach. It nourishes the organs and tissues due to its nutrient content: bioflavanoids, calcium, phosphorous, polysaccharides, and vitamins A, B, C, and K. Slippery Elm also helps to neutralize stomach acid.

Turkey Rhubarb Root
Helps to purge the body of wastes and toxic matter. Also called Indian Rhubarb, this herb counteracts acids due to indigestion and acts as a gentle laxative. The malic acid inherent in the herb carries oxygen to all parts of the body. Turkey Rhubarb has powerful immune supporting properties, and may help support a healthy immune response.

Burdock Root
Used extensively in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine, is a potent blood purifier. Helps support healthy liver and gallbladder function. Burdock contains the nutrients zinc, iron, manganese, and vitamins B1, B6, and B12. It also provides vitamin E and selenium, which help combat free radicals. Burdock Root contains natural insulin, which is beneficial for healthy blood sugar.

(Note: ask to make sure that the herbs are either organic or wildcrafted and non-irradiated.)

http://www.naturalnews.com/z028879_censorship_healing_foods.html
For too long, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) have blatantly censored the truth about food, herbs and dietary supplements. These government agencies are supposed to be protecting public health and well-being, but they accomplish precisely the opposite by actively censoring the truth about natural products and working to keep the public ignorant about the health benefits of nutritional products. It's all part of the plan to prop up the profits of Big Pharma by eliminating the competition...
The FDA says, ridiculously, that only pharmaceutical drugs are capable of preventing or treating disease. Even though this is scientifically false, the agency has structured the rules to categorize anything that treats or prevents disease as a drug. So if you eat walnuts, and those walnuts lower high cholesterol (which they do), the FDA declares your walnuts to be "drugs."
Existing law dictates that if anything is advertised as providing health benefits without the FDA's approval, it's automatically considered to be an "unapproved drug", even if it's a common, everyday food like walnuts, cherries, grapes or oranges.
Amazingly, references to peer-reviewed scientific studies are not allowed to be made by companies without permission from the FDA because the agency considers this to be an illegal health claim. So if you sell walnuts, and your website merely links to published scientific studies that describe the cholesterol-lowering benefits of walnuts, then you can be threatened, arrested, imprisoned and fined millions of dollars by the FDA for selling "unapproved drugs."
If you flee the country, you can be then be listed on INTERPOL as an international fugitive wanted for "drug offenses." This is exactly what happened to Greg Caton, who was recently kidnapped from Ecuador by U.S. agents working on behalf of the FDA (http://www.naturalnews.com/z027750_Greg_Caton_FDA.html), brought back to the USA against his will, and sentenced to federal prison.
The FDA thinks walnuts are drugs
If you're skeptical that what I'm saying here is true, take a look at the warning letter the FDA sent to Diamond Food, Inc. back in February concerning the health claims the company had been making about its walnuts...

What’s tan and black—and gives cancer a deadly whack?
http://www.cancerdefeated.com/whats-tan-and-black-and-gives-cancer-a-deadly-whack/2555/
If you’re a cook, you’re probably familiar with cumin, a tannish-colored powder derived from grinding the seeds of a plant related to the parsley family. The spice is commonly used to prepare Mexican, Spanish, Indian and Middle Eastern dishes. There’s also a plant seed called black cumin that may be less widely known—but has been making headlines lately as a powerful preventive treatment. Both the tan and black cumins have a long history of being used to heal, and research suggests both have value as cancer fighters...

The Little Black Seed That’s Death to Prostate Cancer Cells
The Editor-in-Chief of Experimental Biology and Medicine came right out and said it. This little black seed “efficiently killed ... prostate cancer cells."
Researchers even know how it does this. If you’ve ever eaten any Middle Eastern food, you may have had some of this very same black seed. But you can get it in supplement form too.

Preventing and Reversing Cancer Naturally: The Anticancer Diet Shopping List
Posted on: Sunday, February 9th 2014 at 8:15 am
Written By: Gary Null, PhD
http://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/preventing-and-reversing-cancer-naturally-anticancer-diet-shopping-list

(See above link for live links to supporting articles/references)

This year alone, nearly 600,000 Americans will lose their lives to cancer. Recent estimates tell us that 41 percent of all Americans will be diagnosed with cancer during their lifetimes and 21 percent of the population will lose their lives to this devastating disease.[1] A new report released by the World Health Organization's (WHO) forecasts that by 2035, an incredible 24 million people will be diagnosed with cancer globally.[2] These numbers reflect the need for a complete overhaul of our approach to cancer.

Despite being overlooked for decades, volumes of scientific evidence prove that diet and nutrition play a leading role in cancer development. Only in recent years have mainstream physicians and health groups begun to recognize the importance of our lifestyle choices when it comes to preventing and reversing cancer. Even the WHO report recommends a diet rich in fruits, vegetables and whole grains as a powerful way to help stave off this disease. Here is my list of anticancer superfoods that you can begin incorporating into your diet today for greater health and vitality. I've included dozens of scientific citations demonstrating the benefits of each of these nutrient-rich foods.

Alkaline Foods
The vast majority of Americans consume an excess of acid-forming foods. Research has shown that tumor growth increases in an acid environment.[3][4][5] The blood is maintained in the body at a slightly alkaline level of between 7.2 and 7.4.

Eating alkaline foods keeps the blood pH in its ideal range, which is important for the prevention and treatment of cancer. Ideally, the diet should consist of 80 percent alkaline-forming foods, such as those available from many raw fruits and vegetables, as well as nuts, seeds, grains, and legumes. What follows is a list of recommended alkaline-forming foods:

Fruits: Berries, apples, apricots, avocados, bananas, currants, dates, figs, grapefruit, grapes, kiwis, lemons, limes, mangos, melons, nectarines, olives, oranges, papayas, peaches, pears, persimmons, pine­apple, quince, raisins, raspberries, strawberries, tangerines, and water­melon. (The most alkaline-forming foods are lemons and melons.)

Vegetables: Artichoke, asparagus, sprouts, beets, bell peppers, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, celery, col­lards, corn, cucumbers, eggplant, endive, ginger, horseradish, kale, kelp, seaweeds, mustard greens, okra, onions, parsley, potatoes, rad­ishes, spinach, squash, tomatoes, watercress, and yams.

Whole Grains: Amaranth, barley, oats, quinoa, and wild rice.

Beans/Legumes: Almonds, chestnuts, chickpeas, green beans, lima beans, peas, and soybeans.

Seeds: Alfalfa, chia, coconut, radish, and sesame.

Cruciferous Vegetables
Vegetables in the cruciferous family include kale, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, arugula, watercress, turnips, mustard plant, Brussels sprouts, and bok choy. Cruciferous vegetables contain detoxifying compounds called indoles and isothiocyanates, which have been proven to help prevent and reverse cancer[6][7][8][9] Recent research has identified sulforaphane, a compound found in broccoli, cabbage, and other cruciferous vegetables as a potent anticancer agent.[10]

Green Foods
Wheatgrass, barley grass, alfalfa, blue-green algae, arugula, spinach, chlorella and spirulina, and other green foods are rich in blood-purifying chlorophyll and other important phytonutrients for detoxifying the system and rejuvenating organs. Laboratory tests have established that chlorophyll inhibits the activity of carcinogens at a molecular level.[11] Studies have demonstrated the capacity of chlorophyll-rich foods to reduce tumor growth.[12][13][14].Green powders are loaded with phytonutrients proven to be highly beneficial in cancer prevention and healing.

Red Foods
Research confirms that red foods such as strawberries, tomatoes, raspberries, tart cherries, cranberries, and goji berries are high in immunosupportive and cancer-fighting nutrients such as lycopene and carotene.[15][16][17]Many red foods also have high antioxidant content, making them an integral component of any anticancer diet. The antioxidant power of raspberries, strawberries, pomegranate, and dozens of other nutrient-rich fruits make some red and berry powders cancer superfoods.

Fiber
Though not a food itself, fiber is an important component of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. The typical American diet includes about 14 g of fiber each day, which falls short of what is necessary for cancer prevention. Studies have indicated that 30g of dietary fiber daily decrease the risk of colorectal cancer. Research has also suggested that high fiber intake may lower the risk of breast, colorectal, uterine and prostate cancers.[18][19]

Olive Oil
Olive oil has been shown to possess anticancer properties. Studies have demonstrated that the monounsaturated fatty acids contained in olive oil have a protective effect against cancer growth. [20][21] Research has also shown that the phytochemicals abundant in olive oil inhibit cancer growth in vitro.[22] But remember, more isn't always better. Olive oil still has 120 calories per tablespoon, so don't go overboard. For maximum benefit, olive oil should be used in moderation. Choose a good-quality, extra virgin, cold-pressed variety.

Juices
Freshly squeezed fruit and vegetable juices provide valuable enzymes and antioxidant nutrients that are easily digestible. Compounds in cabbage juice have been observed to have favorable effects on stomach and colorectal cancer.[23][24] Rich in beta-carotene and vitamin A, carrot juice is beneficial but should be watered down, as it is also high in sugar, and can potentially spike blood sugar levels.[25] Adding a teaspoon of vitamin C to juices creates an even more potent preventive tonic.

Green Tea
High in antioxidants known as polyphenolic catechins, green tea has been shown to help prevent skin, lung, esophageal, stomach, pancreatic, and bladder cancer in animals.[26] Studies have demonstrated that green tea extract halts the spread of chronic lymphocytic leukemia.[27] Recent research also indicates that green tea contains compounds that considerably slow the growth of cancer cells.[28]

Mushrooms
Several varieties of mushrooms have powerful healing properties. The maitake mushroom kills cancer cells by enhancing the activity of T-helper cells.[29] Research has shown the maitake mushroom to exert a favorable effect on various types of cancer, including breast, colon, and prostate.[30][31][32]Both shiitake and reishi mushrooms have also been observed to have strong antitumor properties in animals.[33][34][35]Research has revealed that the cordyceps mush­room inhibits the division and proliferation of cancer cells.[36] And, surprisingly, the common white button mushroom has been shown to suppress aromatase activity and estrogen biosynthesis, which make it an excellent breast cancer chemopreventive agent.[37]

Seaweeds
Chinese medicine has long recognized the value of seaweed for treating cancers, as it softens hardened tumors. More recently, research has shed light on the powerful mix of micronutrients, including Vitamin C and Vitamin E, as well as minerals, iodine, fiber, and polysaccharides in seaweed, which make it a powerful nutritional tool in combating cancer.[38][39] Considered to be one of the healthiest populations on earth, the Japanese consume more seaweed than any other nation.

Spices
Spices offer numerous health-promoting benefits, and certain spices have been found to aid in the prevention and treatment of cancer. Research has associated black pepper and black cumin seed intake with a lower incidence of colon cancer.[40][41][42] Rosemary is known to help prevent DNA damage by carcinogens and suppress cancer cell proliferation.[43][44][45] Capsaicin, an ingredient found in chili peppers, kills prostate cancer cells.[46] Evidence suggests that parsley combats lung and breast cancer.[47][48]

The Invisible Nuclear Threat Within Non-Organic Food
http://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/invisible-nuclear-threat-within-non-organic-food1
Whether you know it or or not, nuclear waste (cobalt-60) has been used for decades to make your food "safer."
How Do You Know If Your Food Has Been Nuked?
When you buy conventional food, there is little assurance that it has not been irradiated.  Although labeling requirements specify that irradiated food sold in stores should have the international symbol - the Radura - affixed to it, oversight is particularly poor in this regard, and restaurant food and processed food containing irradiated ingredients are not legally required to be labeled as such...
Labeled, or not, irradiated food is exposed to the same ionizing gamma radiation that destroyed life in Hiroshima, Chernobyl and now Fukushima. "Primitive" life forms like microbes refuse to ingest irradiated food (which is why we use it), but humans are gullible enough to believe industry pundits and governmental "authorities" like the USDA and FDA, who say doses of radiation applied to your food up to and quite close to a billion chest x-rays worth of ionizing radiation is safe for human consumption...

To truly appreciate the significance of this study, take a look at the growing body of toxicological research indicating that the unintended, adverse health effects of Tylenol (acetaminophen) far outweigh its purported benefits. We recently featured articles on the fact that even only occasional use of Tylenol may raise a child's asthma risk 540%, and that it may be time for the FDA to remove it from the market...

Avemar: Fermented Wheat Germ Kills All Types of Cancer Cells FAST
Avemar kills seemingly ALL kinds of cancer, and has been the subject of many scientific studies to prove efficacy.

One incredible, natural product kills seemingly ALL kinds of cancer, and has been subjected to numerous scientific studies to prove its efficacy.

A non-toxic, fermented wheat germ has been shown to halt aberrations in cells – that which makes ‘good’ cells turn into cancerous ones. Every healthy cell has the potential to either block, interfere or promote enzymatic activity, which can then turn healthy cells into tumorous cells. Fermented wheat germ (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) (http://www.drdavidwilliams.com/avemar-cancer/#ixzz2op7mrmlx) made by a standardized, patented process, and named Avemar, (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed?term=avemar) specifically inhibits interference in enzymatic activity so that regular cellular respiration (including glucose metabolism) can occur among only healthy cells.

While chemo and radiation kill healthy cells along with cancerous ones, fermented wheat germ only targets cancerous cells. Avemar not only halts cancerous cell growth, but also boosts the immune system in general. Fermented wheat germ has been shown to halt ovarian cancer, (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22740002) skin cancers, (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18771352) prostate cancer, stomach cancer, leukemia, (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17137710) lymphoma, (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19212640) and more. It has cytotoxic (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21496306) effects on almost every type of cancer cell. In fact, it had an 85% effective rate at reducing cancerous tumors in one study.
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17137710

    "Avemar (MSC) is a nontoxic fermented wheat germ extract demonstrated to significantly improve the survival rate in patients suffering from various malignancies. We investigated its effects in human HL-60 promyelocytic leukemia cells. After 24, 48, and 72 h of incubation, Avemar inhibited the growth of HL-60 cells with IC50 values of 400, 190, and 160 microg/ml, respectively. Incubation with MSC caused dose-dependent induction of apoptosis in up to 85% of tumor cells. In addition, Avemar attenuated the progression from G2-M to G0-G1 phase of the cell cycle and was also found to significantly reduce the in situ activity of ribonucleotide reductase, the key enzyme of de novo DNA synthesis. We conclude that Avemar exerts a number of beneficial effects which could support conventional chemotherapy of human malignancies."
