All of these are signs of Candida Yeast Infection.

 

Candida affects 80% of all Americans, because of our high Carb diets.  

It has some 300 different symptoms!

It can be very dangerous, if left untreated.

 

Candida Albicans is a fungus that, when overgrown and out of balance, can create a serious health issue.  We all have Candida, because it grows in our intestines as part of our normal flora.  We require 10% of the flora in our intestines to be a fungus to aid in our regular digestive processIt is not possible, nor is it desirable, to completely eliminate Candida, because it is a normal natural part of the flora in your intestine and it is necessary for digestion.  However, we function best when only 10% of our intestinal environment consists of fungus.  The real problem begins when the Candida overgrows, due in great part to the use of antibiotics prescribed by your doctor. 

 

Antibiotics (Antibiotics:  Anti = against and  bio = Life   Antibiotic means against life!) kill all bacteria, good and bad, indiscriminately.  However, the job of some of the “good” bacteria is to eat and thus control the growth of fungus in our gut.  When these good bacteria are killed by the antibiotics, there is no guard to prevent the overgrowth of the fungus. 

 

Then, on top of knocking out our protection, Candida overgrowth is fostered and compounded by our American Diet, high in carbs, sugar and white flour.  As the Candida rapidly multiplies, it moves up the intestine through your stomach, then into the esophagus, mouth and sinuses.  It also moves down through the intestines, coming out at the anus and can also infect a woman’s vagina.  In the vagina it will cause a bad smelling, greyish-white discharge and itching.  Men are also susceptible to carrying Candida in the folds of their foreskin, which then can be passed to their sexual partner. 

 

Candida can establish itself on skin, in scalp or in the ears.  On the skin it can cause itchy, raw, sore spots where it finds folds or creases in the skin.  In the hair it can cause flaking, like dandruff.  In the ears, it will cause itching and sometimes a ringing or buzzing called tinnitus.

 

Doctors rarely diagnose Candida, because their main focus and that of their primary treatment – antibiotics -- is bacteria.  Since Candida is a fungus, it is not the first thing that comes to their mind when dealing with a patient’s complaints.  When they do diagnose Candida, they frequently recommend Nystatin or one of the other antifungals, which are known to be injurious to your kidneys, and are required by law to be disclosed as such in their contraindications material dispatched along with the medicine.

 

When Candida mutates from non-pathogenic to pathogenic form, it produces root-like structures called rhizoids, which penetrate the intestinal walls and create holes in the walls of the intestines.  This condition is called Leaky Gut Syndrome.  It enables the yeast, toxic waste, bacteria and undigested food to escape from the intestines and enter the blood stream causing many unpleasant and often dangerous conditions.  When Candida becomes systemic through your leaky guy, it can virtually penetrate and manifest itself within every organ it settles in. 

 


Candida yeast produces, as its waste product, more than 75 toxic substances that poison the human body. The two major toxins (Canditoxin and ethanol) have a negative effect on our brain and can significantly interfere with our biochemical processes. Note that Canditoxin and ethanol that are released into your blood stream are the SAME dangerous toxins that when injected into rats, had caused paralysis of the limbs and ultimately death.

In humans Canditoxin and ethanol cause a myriad of health problems:  vaginal yeast infection, dry itchy skin, oral thrush, skin rashes, eczema, joint pain, stomach bloating, chronic diarrhea, arthritis, constipation, heartburn, blisters in the mouth, restless sleep, lack of energy, brain fog, chronic sinus problems, jumpy legs, headaches, blurred vision, mood swings, sugary food cravings, food allergies, jock and rectal itching, body chills, athlete's foot, to name just a few.   And just a few years ago, yeast has been determined to be the cause and substance of Cancer.

 

I struggled with Candida for years without knowing what it was.  Once I determined what my problem was, I spent over 5 years trying to “cure” it, with only minor successes at best.  I tried everything I heard about or read about to control and kill it.  At the height of my infection, I found that nearly everything humans eat contain nutrients or chemicals that FEED the yeast, including processed or fried meats.  Meat normally does not feed the yeast, but it will if cooked improperly.   Frying meats requires high temperatures, which will cause chemical changes in the meats, which then feeds the yeast.  Boiling or baking presents fewer chemical changes and are thus better for your Candida diet.

 

Diet is important to Candida control, but diet alone isn’t the answer.  Changing your diet to avoid simple carbs will certainly help to control Candida and we shouldn’t neglect a healthy diet rich in vegetables and lower in carbs, but almost everything we eat seems to contain something that feeds the yeast.  The other half of the answer lies in elimination of the overgrowth of Candida.

 

Fortunately there are some easy remedies which are not harmful to your body and are very effective against Candida.  They are not quick cures, but they are effective, inexpensive and you won’t run the risk of damaging your very important organs.

 

TESTING YOURSELF FOR CANDIDA

First thing in the morning, before you spit or swallow, gather a mouthful of saliva and spit it on to the top of a clear glass of cold water.  For the next hour watch what happens.  If the spittle lies on the top of the water in frothy bubbles, you have healthy saliva.  If the saliva sinks toward the bottom of the glass in long, gray, root-like strings, that indicates a  Candida problem.  The faster this happens the heavier your load of Candida.

 

•Check your tongue in a mirror.  Is it covered with a white or grayish coating?  Your tongue should be pink.  

•Does it have deep cracks or lines in it?  There should be no cracks. 

•Does your mouth frequently feel dry or hot or prickly?  Again Candida. 

•Do you get tiny, sore bumps on your tongue or gums?  Blame Candida. 

 

ORAL CANDIDA

An EASY fix for oral or any topical Candida infection is ½ teaspoon of bleach in 1 cup of water.  Mix well.  Use as gargle morning and evening.  Swish vigorously between your teeth, as well.   Do not swallow bleach.  A tiny bit won’t hurt you.  Think of a chlorinated swimming pool.  That has bleach in it, too.  It isn’t good for you, so don’t swallow it, but if you accidently swallow a tiny bit, it won’t hurt you.  Soak your toothbrush in the same solution, between brushings to kill any Candida which survives the brushing.  Before gargling, scrape your tongue with a flat surface, such as a table knife, to get rid of as much of the white fuzzy Candida layer as possible.  Brush your teeth and tongue with baking soda, not toothpaste.  If you have infected gums or bleeding gums, this will also help.

 

Some also swear by a vinegar gargle. 1 Tablespoon of vinegar in a cup of water.  I’ve also found a few drops of Yeast Ease swished and gargled to also be very effective.  It is available from Jernigan Neutraceuticals http://www.jernigannutraceuticals.com/ .  Yeast Ease is tested to kill the 5 main types of yeast on contact.  It is more expensive, by far, than the vinegar or bleach solutions, and no more effective as far as I can determine.  I offer it here as an alternative, if you wish one.

 

SINUS INFECTION

I dealt with a sinus infection for twenty years, believing I had allergies, not knowing that it was Candida.  The absolute best discovery I made was Sinufix Nasal spray—not the pills, though they do help, too.  It is available at your health food store or at www.swansonvitamins.com, and will, over time, wipe out the yeast in your sinuses.  It will not solve the systemic problem, but it will knock down the infection in your sinuses and allow you to breathe more freely.  I found nothing else to compare with it for healing raw, congested sinuses and to promote clearer breathing.

 

VAGINAL YEAST INFECTION

For a vaginal douche that is very effective against Candida, use 2 tablespoons of vinegar in a pint of warm water.  Flush through the vagina, lying down in your tub, so that gravity pulls the solution deep into the recesses of the vagina.  Douche morning and evening for 5 days.  That will control it nicely, at least until your next flare up, which inevitably comes, if you haven’t controlled the problem at the source…your colon.

 

TOPICAL YEAST INFECTION

The bleach solution can be dabbed on skin with a cotton ball several times a day and will kill Candida on contact.  Then, before bedtime, apply Preparation H or a similar hemorrhoid medication to promote healing, if it is very raw and sore.  Shark oil is the wonderful healing property in Preparation H that promotes healing.  The bleach solution will kill the infection and the hemorrhoid cream will help your skin to heal.  No more pain, itching or soreness!   The Candida will break out again, if you haven’t controlled it systemically.

 

FINGERNAIL OR TOE NAIL INFECTIONS

Soaking your fingers and toes 20 minutes per day in the bleach solution will be effective over time.  Scrape debris from under the nail and then trim the nail as far back as is comfortable so that the liquid will penetrate as far into the nail and nail bed as possible.  Soak your trimming utensils in this solution also to prevent reinfection.  This process should continue for as long as it takes your nails to grow out.  And you must also fight it internally.  Soaking isn’t effective for the inside bed of the nails.  This must be treated systemically with MMS, below.

 

INTERNAL TREATMENT TO CLEAR ORGANS AND BLOOD

The ONLY thing I’ve found that will clear out the internal Candida is Miracle Mineral Supplement (MMS).  When I tried to clear mine, I took every product on the health food store’s shelves that said it was for Candida or fungus.  NOTHING worked.  Then, I learned of MMS.  

 

When I first began to take MMS for my Candida problem, I began with a small dose, just a few drops twice a day, and over a few weeks I built up to a dose of 23 drops twice a day.  I’ve read of others who have built up to taking up to 65 drops twice a day.  It did take several months, but I saw the evidence with my own eyes of the complete clearing of Candida from my stomach and intestines.

 

A new protocol has been developed by Jim Humble, the creator of MMS, which indicates the following to be effective: Take a few drops (6 to 10 -- or more as you build up to this dosage slowly over a couple of weeks) in the morning and then repeating that dose 1 hour later, then repeating those two doses again in 4 hours an hour a part, and again repeating that dosage 4 hours later, again an hour apart.  Thus, one would take 6 doses per day, taking two doses each time but 1 hour apart, doing this 3 times a day.  This puts the maximum amount of MMS into your system without causing your body to react to it, which it could, if you tried to take as much all at one time.  The reaction is demonstrated by either vomiting or diarrhea and is caused by MMS killing so many pathogens (called die off) that your body can’t process them all at one time, so it eliminates it through vomiting or diarrhea instead of processing it through kidneys and liver.   If this happens, he suggests backing off for a day or two by a few drops, and then beginning again at a reduced dosage and building up your dosage again.  You can find more info from Mr. Humble at his website http://jimhumble.biz

 

MMS creates a stabilized gas which lasts up to 12 hours in your body.  Oxygen is deadly to yeast, which requires an oxygen poor environment to thrive.  Oxygen is beneficial to your body, and unlike antibiotics, doesn’t kill off the good flora in your system.  It targets and eliminates all the bad-for-us pathogens, viruses, bacteria and fungi, because it kills only those pathogens which don’t match our body’s pH factor, which are all the things that make us sick, such as AIDS, CANCER, Malaria, Herpes, Colds, Flu, etc.   None of these match our pH factor, so they do make us ill.    MMS is Nature’s all-in-one perfect antibiotic.

 

There are other ways of getting oxygen into your system.  Vitamin O (a brand name for liquid oxygen), baking soda and food grade hydrogen peroxide are all effective at introducing oxygen into your body, but the effect from these does not last long enough to actually be beneficial to us.  Most of the oxygen dissipates within 20 minutes.  Thus, they are not nearly as effective as MMS.  MMS will last for up to 12 hours in your body.   It dissipates as it kills, so it may be all worn out before the 12 hours, if it encounters lots of pathogens.   It kills bad pathogens on contact as the gas it creates is picked up and transferred by the blood to every organ throughout your body, effectively eliminating yeast cells as it encounters them, as well as bacteria and viruses with which it comes in contact!

 

Another great benefit of MMS is that it helps detox your body from heavy metals, too!  We all gather a load of mercury, zinc, aluminum, etc. over our lifetime, and these can cause Alzheimer’s, muddy thinking, reduced immune system efficiency, and more.  Detoxing your body every 6 months or so is a good idea and easily done with MMS. 

 

THE CANDIDA DIET
Watching your diet is the single most important factor in your quest to conquer Candida.    Avoiding or severely limiting white flour and sugar is paramount.  Both simple and complex carbs feed the candida, and many foods contain carbs, but white flour and sugar are like rocket fuel to Candida.  The compound carbs found in vegetables are metabolized more slowly and while they will feed the candida, they are not as nearly as bad as sugary candies or ice cream or floury bakery goods.  An excellent cook book called the “Coping with Candida Cookbook” by Dr. Sally Rockwell is available at many health food stores.  It has some good recipes, but I really appreciate that it gives the carb value for most foods.  While you are doing your internal cleanse from Candida, you will want to try to eat the lower carb foods.  If you feed the Candida at the same time you are trying to eliminate it, you will be at this a LONG time.  To enable your recovery, be sure to take a multi-strain probiotic to replace the flora which antibiotics have decimated.

 

Am I cured?  Never completely.  Candida can regrow as you take more antibiotics or ingest more sugar, white flour and simple carbs.  But, watch your diet and keep the MMS handy.  You’ll never have to suffer again as you do now.  Contact me to purchase or for more info.

Breast Cancer

http://drknews.com/iodine-and-hashimotos/

Iodine supplementation has become very popular in recent years, and with good reason. Iodine has been shown to be an effective therapy for such conditions as breast and uterine fibroids, breast cancer, and more. When it comes to Hashimoto’s, however, I oppose the use of iodine as you risk worsening your autoimmune thyroid condition.

As I explained in the book, iodine stimulates the activity of the thyroid peroxidase (TPO) enzyme, which triggers thyroid hormone production. This is why so many thyroid supplements contain iodine, even though the thyroid only needs enough iodine to fit on the head of a pin each day in order to perform its duties.

Supplementing with iodine stimulates the production and activity of TPO. For most people with Hashimoto’s, TPO also happens to be the site of autoimmune attack, and surrounding thyroid tissue is damaged in the process. So everytime TPO production is stimulated, the immune system, which perceives TPO as a foreign invader to be eradicated, responds more aggressively and amps up the attack.

"Ridding the world of cancer once and for all."

 

     The treatments and therapies below are presented for general information only and not considered medical advice. Nor are they recommendations for or against any other treatments or therapies. They are simply the most commonly used worldwide and are offered here as a free public service. Some of these therapies go back to the 1920s and remain ignored by mainstream medicine in favor of drugs, surgery and radiation. Others are newer.

 

Be prepared for much negativity from conventional cancer treatment centers and conventional doctors (MD oncologists) about the value of alternative therapies. Keep in mind that although MDs have your best interests at heart, successful natural, low-cost, non-toxic, cancer therapies are unknown to them and represent serious competition to everything they stand for. This is human nature at work - the way of the world.

 

Order the inexpensive 45 page report for a complete guide to using natural and alternative cancer therapies, and finding practitioners nearest you familiar with them.

 

Always work with a qualified health care provider in making decisions about therapies or personal health conditions. 

 

It's time all these successful, little-known, non-toxic therapies are made public knowledge for patients and doctors alike. In fact there are far more than shown here. These are the best. None are taught in conventional medical schools. 

 

 

AHCC (ImmPower

AHCC is a new hybrid of several species of medicinal mushrooms, each of which have been used in traditional

healing in Asia for centuries. The resulting product is a powerful, single, hybridized mushroom. Developed in Japan,

it is grown in a liquid medium containing rice bran, and then enzymatically modified to be readily absorbed and

used by the body. AHCC is one of the world's most powerful  immune system enhancers. Specifically, ImmPower™ 

helps maintain peak natural killer cell function, supports enhanced cytokine production and promotes optimal

T-Cell and macrophage activity. Over 600 hospitals in Europe and Asia now routinely use AHCC  in cancer care.

 

Antineoplastons

Antineoplastons are peptide fractions derived from human blood and urine. (Peptides are short-chain amino acids.)

They were developed by Stanislaw Burzynski, a Polish biochemist and M.D. who emigrated to the US in 1970 and

worked as a researcher and assistant professor at the Baylor College of Medicine until 1977. It was here that he

developed these peptides, and formulated his theory that they are important components of the body’s biochemical

defense system which repairs mis-programmed cells rather than kill them. He feels that these peptides can be

useful against all diseases caused by mis-programming, not just cancer. He does not claim to cure cancer, but

feels that antineoplastons can help treat it. Studies at the federal level are now underway.

 

Apricot pits

No question, this is a controversial therapy. Thousands of people worldwide for the last 50+ years have made use

of a key ingredient in apricot pits, a form of organic cyanide in a tiny amount, to fight cancer. The official position

of the FDA is that doing this is contrary to their rulings and therefore subject to prosecution. And indeed sometimes

they do prosecute people for selling apricot pits! The story of Jason Vale is one instance. (Do an Internet search

for more info) The value of the active ingredient, called nitrilosides has been effectively discredited by the government

and major drug manufacturers for decades. Yet many people have pointed to this therapy as responsible for finally

eliminating their cancers. Other names for nitrilosides over the years have been Laetrile, Amygdalin and Vitamin

B-17. The same Nitrilosides are contained in over 1200 common fruits, nuts, grains and grasses. The trace of

organic cyanide can effectively destroy cancer cells in earlier stages of the disease. One Mexican hospital has

treated over 100,000 cancer patients in the last 35 years using nitriloside compounds for 90% of these people.

Curiously the gov't has no problem with standard Vitamin B12, chemically called cyanocobalimin. Cyanide is used

in processing natural B12 for use in foods and nutritional supplements.

 

Anvirzel®

A new weapon against cancer  and AIDS from Ozelle Pharmaceuticals - a herbal extract which is nontoxic and

causes no adverse side effects. Closed clinical trials are showing that the drug is especially effective against

prostate and breast cancer. The materials of the company promoting Anvirzel. say that Dr Ozel treated 494 cancer

patients with the extract, resulting in a high rate of success. The company has organized phase I and II trials in

Ireland, and states that the trials confirmed the efficacy of the extract in cancer. They say the patients were

improved in their quality of life as well as regression of cancer, while reporting no notable side effects. Best results

were said to be in prostate, lung and brain cancers. Sarcomas showed stabilization. 

 

Arginine (1-arginine)

Arginine, an amino acid essential for life, has been found to consistently inhibit the growth of tumors. Research has

indicated that giving arginine in fairly large doses "led to virtually complete inhibition of the carcinogenic process.

" In 1980, National Cancer Institute scientists found that injections of arginine into tumor-bearing rats consistently

inhibited the growth of tumors. Their reports stated, "within two weeks, tumor size was reduced to 80 percent of

the initial size. Tumor-bearing animals showed no toxic effects from the arginine." Even more research exists now

to document the excellent results gained from the use of arginine routinely in the care of the cancer patient. Why

this simple, inexpensive approach is not used by every conventional cancer treatment center after all these

years is a mystery.

 

Artemisinin

A Chinese herb, sweet wormwood (qinghao in Chinese). In test tube studies, breast cancer cell research resulted

in a 28% reduction of breast cancer cells treated only with artemisinin, and an amazing 98% decrease in breast

cancer cells within 16 hours that were treated with artemisinin and an iron-enhancing molecule, transferrin. These

treatments had no significant effect on normal human breast cells. This research pointed to the involvement of free

iron in the toxic effect of artemisinin toward cancer cells, while basically sparing healthy cells. ("Selective toxicity

of dihydroartemisinin and holotransferrin toward human breast cancer cells," Life Sciences" 70 {2001) 49-56

 

Avemar

This well-documented cancer fighter is based on the work of the famous Hungarian biochemist Albert

Szent-Gyorgyi, best known for his 1937 Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine. Mixed with water and drank from

a glass, studies done on this mild tasting product derived from wheat germ have caught the attention of cancer

researchers worldwide. Avemar has been the subject of more than 100 published scientific reports since 1996

related to in vitro, in vivo and human research including more than 30 peer-reviewed publications demonstrating it's

effectiveness against cancer. Publications about Avemar are available in the database of PubMed, the U.S.

National Library of Medicine and the National Institute of Health (www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed). Available on the

Internet, the biological cancer fighting and immune system enhancing mechanism of this product is almost unique

in the therapeutic world. Avemar is today one of the most comprehensively studied products of plant origin and

 has shown that when used as an adjunct treatment, it enhances the effects of conventional cancer treatment

agents. 

 

Beta Glucans, 1, 3, 6

Beta glucans are biological defense modifiers (BDM) that nutritionally enhance, modify and balance the immune

system. Glucans have been investigated for many years, particularly in light of their ability to activate macrophage

immune cells and, in turn, the T-Cells, NK-Cells and B-Cells including selected cytokines and complement. The

scientific literature is voluminous over many decades, including a considerable body of patent literature. Beta

Glucan action nutritionally aids the body, particularly when the immune cell population is being reduced or limited

by a disease condition, or such treatments such as radiation and chemotherapy.

 

Bindweed extract

High molecular weight extracts of bindweed were shown to inhibit the growth of virulent tumors in mice. Extracts

possess immune system boosting effects as evidenced by tumor infiltration by white blood cells in animals, plus

increased lymphocytes. Further, they inhibit angiogenisis (the growth of cancer blood vessels that feed them with

fresh blood). The method of extraction of the present bindweed and buckwheat extracts is very simple and requires

a minimum of purification. The present bindweed and buckwheat extracts have utility as low-toxicity, anti-cancer

therapy for humans and animals.

 

Bovine Cartilage

Despite much media hype over Shark Cartilage, Bovine Cartilage has been studied regarding cancer care for many

years. Harvard trained physician John F. Prudden has been using it to treat human cancer since the early 1970's.

Dr. Prudden has published a 31 patient case series in which he records some remarkable remissions in a wide

variety of intractable malignancies including Pancreatic Cancer, Metastatic Breast Cancer, and Glioblastoma

Multiforme. Some of these patients had been followed for more than five years at the time the case series was

published in 1985. According to the National Cancer Institute, Bovine Cartilage, a type of tough, flexible connective

tissue, has been studied and shown to "have some value" in cancer therapy. As indicated, various preparations of

cartilage from sharks have been studied in the laboratory and in animals for their ability to kill cancer cells, stimulate

the immune system, and block formation of new blood vessels feeding cancer cells. Nevertheless, NCI's official

public position remains that scientific evidence to date has not proven cartilage to be an effective treatment for

cancer. Several formal human clinical trials at NCI are now underway. 

 

Budwig Flax Oil & Cottage Cheese diet

The Flax seed (Linseed) oil diet was originally proposed by Dr. Johanna Budwig, a German biochemist and expert

on fats and oils in 1951. Her simple formula of two tablespoons of flaxseed oil to a quarter cup of low fat cottage

cheese (or other foods containing sulfur) helps increase metabolism, boosts the immune system, reduces

cholesterol levels, and for reasons not clear, helps inhibit cancer-cell growth. This unlikely but effective combination

of products has been one of the most popular and successful alternative cancer therapies for decades. Dr.

Budwig has various books on this subject.

 

Carctol®

A combination of natural herbs developed in India, Carctol is a well researched and tested cancer therapy. It treats

all types of cancer including cancers of the esophagus, ear, nose throat, brain, breast, lymphoma, lungs, blood,

kidney, cervix, stomach, colon/rectal, pancreas etc. Demonstrated to be non-toxic and side effect free, it has been

used successfully in India and parts of Europe for 25 years. Besides successfully  treating cancer, it also

neutralizes toxic agents produced by chemotherapeutic drugs. 

 

Carnivora (Venus Fly Trap extract)

Carnivora supplies essential nutrients to the immune system allowing it to operate at high efficiency. It  allowing it

to operate at maximum efficiency. In addition, it mimics the activities of the immune system itself in destroying

defective or so-called primitive cells from a wide variety of pathogens (viruses and bacteria). Many laboratory studies

worldwide have demonstrated its effectiveness against cancer and aids. Since 1981, over 2000 patients have been

treated with Carnivora, including President Ronald Reagan.

 

Cesium Chloride

Cesium Chloride, one of earth's most alkaline elements, has been used to raise the pH of the body as an alternative

or complementary cancer treatment for many years. In the 1930s, Dr. Otto Warburg of Germany won a Nobel

Prize for showing that cancer thrives in anaerobic (without oxygen) or acidic, conditions. Research by Keith Brewer,

PhD and H.E. Sartori has shown that raising the pH, or oxygen content of a cancer cell, to 8.0 creates a deadly

environment within and it soon dies and is disposed of by the body. Today cesium chloride is typically used in

combination with potassium. 

 

Chelation Therapy

Mercury, nickel, lead, and aluminum are all considered heavy (toxic) metals. They can enter our bodies from many

sources including automotive exhaust, cosmetics, paint, evaporated milk, infant formulas, baby powder, bleached

white flour, pharmaceutical drugs, antacids, tooth paste, and aspirin. Heavy metals can block the natural

detoxification processes. This can lead to fatigue, nutritional deficiencies, and numerous other health-related issues.

Chelation therapy safely and effectively removes heavy metals from the body’s cells and tissues. The word

“chelation” comes from the Greek work chele, which means claw. Chelation therapy can be administered orally

(pills) or by injection. The therapy can be helpful in improving blood circulation and can be part of the Personalized

Treatment Plan for patients with various conditions. 

 

Coley's Toxins

Amazingly, in 1888 Dr. William B. Coley (1862-1936), Harvard Medical School graduate, eminent New York City

surgeon and cancer researcher, stumbled across one of the most intriguing findings ever made in cancer research.

Cancer cannot survive in an environment of temperatures more than 42 C (107.6 F). His discovery was first tolerated,

then ridiculed, and finally suppressed. In recent years some new interest in his discovery has emerged among

researchers. Dr. Coley, devised methods to safely create a fever in cancer patients with great success. Sadly,

even after 100 years of knowing this, there is no trace of his simple heat therapy in conventional medical

circles today. 

 

Conjugated linoleic acid or CLA

Meats and dairy products do contain a remarkable cancer fighting nutrient called conjugated linoleic acid or

CLA (Tonalin). However, a steady decline in the amount of CLA supplied by meats and dairy products in the

diet through the past 50 years years can be attributed to modern farming practices. The meat of grass-fed cows

contains up to four times as much CLA as cows fattened in feed lots. Today's dairy products have only about one

third of the CLA content they used to have before 1960. CLA stimulates the immune system, inhibits cancer growth,

improves insulin sensitivity (work with your physician here if diabetic), improves blood lipid levels, improves lean

body mass to fat ratios, and has no known practical toxicity levels. Organic dairy products could be expected to

have more CLA because there is a certification requirement to have adequate pasture available to the animals. 

CLA can be supplied in large controlled amounts though supplements. Although CLA may appear to be just

another weight loss supplement, its anticancer properties appear to be real and should not be overlooked.

Typical doses are 0.75 grams to 4 grams a day.

 

Curcumin 

Curcumin (diferuloyl methane) is the active compound in the spice Tumeric. Curcumin has potent irreversible

anti-proliferative effects against a variety of cancer cell lines in vitro (in test tube). Further, this compound

demonstrates little in the way of toxicity in animals as well as in preliminary Phase I trials in humans. In fact,

scientists have discovered even curry powder (turmeric is a principal ingredient in curry) helps stop the spread

of breast cancer. Texas-based researchers found that curcumin inhibits the spread of breast cancer into the

lungs and improves the effectiveness of current remedies. Bharat Aggarwal, professor of cancer medicine at Texas

University, said: "We are excited about the study results and the possible implications for taking the findings

into the clinic in the next few years." There have been numerous articles written on the effectiveness of this

remarkable herb in the treatment of cancer. Curcumin is believed to directly induce cancer cell apoptosis

(cell suicide).

 

d-Glucarate

Discovered by researchers at the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Texas, d-glucarates have been shown to

decrease lung, skin, liver, breast and colon cancers by 60 percent or more (Walaszek, 1990). In addition, it has

been found to have an inhibitor effect on cancers of the bladder and the prostate. In the breast, D-glucarate has

been shown in more than 20 experimental animal and in vitro studies to significantly inhibit cancer. The primary

mechanism of action of D-glucarate is through its ability to enhance detoxification of both chemical carcinogens

from the environment and estrogenic tumor promoters produced by the body. Women who are at a higher risk

for breast cancer have a lower detoxification capacity for carcinogens and estrogens. Likewise, D-glucarate has

been found to effectively prevent the induction of prostate cancer in men. Non-prescription calcium d-glucarate

tablets are readily available.

 

Detoxification procedures

One of the most important messages in this entire report. Removal of internal toxins and metabolic waste

material, all of which builds up in the body over time, is essential to restoring health in any disease and a

cornerstone of the most successful alternative treatment centers. The body must constantly devote enormous

energy and resources protecting itself against the effects of internal toxins and waste products - resources that

would be far better spent fighting cancer. Depending on who you read, estimates of the amount of man-made

chemicals in our air, food and water today range from 38,000 to 95,000. These compounds never even existed in

nature prior to the industrial revolution beginning in the late 1800s. Most alternative clinics and hospitals drain the

lymph system using massage therapy and herbs. The kidneys, liver and digestive system are also cleaned out.

Chelation therapy (oral or intravenous) will clear the arteries, the blood, and will remove toxic metals like mercury,

cadmium and lead. An amazing amount of renewed energy, health, and disease fighting power can be gained by

detoxification procedures alone. Detoxification procedures will eventually become routine in all sectors of

health care, conventional and alternative. It has already started in the lay population.    

 

 

Di-Indole Methane

Di-Indole Methane is the direct metabolite of I3C (Indole-3-Carbinol) and twice as strong. This naturally occurring

extract of the cabbage (cruciferous) family vegetables has proven effective in studies worldwide against hormonal

related cancers. It's mechanism is to decrease high estrogen levels in both men and women, an issue which

usually leads to cancer or other illnesses often associated with aging. Included are prostate disease, breast and

uterine cancers, and weight gain. Supplementing the diet with DIM and eating cruciferous vegetables increases

the specific aerobic metabolism for estrogen, multiplying the chance for so-called bad estrogen to be broken down

into beneficial, or good estrogen metabolites. These good estrogen metabolites are known as the 2-hydroxy

estrogens. 

 

DMSO

Dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) has a wide range of therapeutic uses. Most physicians are unaware of its value in

spite of over 3000 studies on over 500,000 patients (as of 1991!). DMSO binds with water and changes the structure

of the water within the cell, which results in the healing of cellular damage. This also increases the permeability

of the cell membrane, causing a flushing of toxins from the inside of the cell. DMSO also improves immune function,

decreases allergic reactions, increases immunity to infections, prohibits cancer growth, and decreases the potency

of toxins. DMSO crosses the blood-brain barrier, and is an excellent agent to help transport other substances

throughout the body. When used in quantity though, it can produce an odd odor to the body. It continues to be

ignored decade after decade by conventional medicine. 

 

Ellagic Acid

The Hollings Cancer Institute at the University of South Carolina has conducted a double blind study on a

group of 500 cervical cancer patients that excited all involved in the study. For years now, ongoing studies

have shown that a natural product called Ellagic acid is causing so-called G-arrest within 48 hours (inhibiting

and stopping mitosis-cancer cell division), and apoptosis (cell death) within 72 hours, for breast, pancreas,

esophageal, skin, colon and prostate cancer cells. Ellagic Acid Clinical Tests on cultured human cells also

show that it prevents the destruction of the p53 gene by cancer cells. Additional studies suggest that one of

the mechanisms by which Ellagic acid inhibits mutagenesis and carcinogenesis is by forming adducts with

DNA, thus masking binding sites to be occupied by a mutagen or carcinogenic substance. Ellagic acid can

be found in different foods. it is especially effective for those with a genetic predisposition to cancer. 

 

Epican Forte®

Special mention here. Epican Forte™, developed by German physician Dr. Mathias Rath, one of this world's

most accomplished MDs, uses four primary nutrients that work together synergistically to inhibit a certain type of

enzymatic activity associated with cancer cells. It also strengthens connective tissues that contribute to normal

cell growth. These nutrients are Vitamin C, Lysine, Proline, and high-potency standardized green tea extract

containing 80% polyphenols. Cancer cells produce certain enzymes that temporarily digest connective tissue

allowing these cells to move freely through the body. This specialized enzymatic process can be inhibited so that

excessive movement of malignant cell and their growth does not occur. 

 

Essiac tea

One of the oldest and most highly regarded of all alternative cancer treatments. Composed of Burdock,

Indian Rhubarb, Sheep Sorrel, Slippery Elm, and occasionally other ingredients depending on the manufacturer.

Note that some companies are substituting yellow dock herb or curly dock herb these days for the sheep sorrel.

This is not acceptable. Essiac was used by a Canadian nurse, Rene Caisse (Essiac is her name spelled

backward) to successfully treat thousands of cancer patients starting in the 1920s. Claiming the formula was

given to her by Canadian Ojibway Indians, she worked tirelessly with cancer patients for decades never charging

them a penny. Her reputation grew along with her success much to the displeasure of the Canadian medical

profession, and they had her arrested and jailed many times for "practicing medicine without a license". At her

funeral in 1978 at age 90, hundreds of former cancer patients attended and paid their last respects to her for

saving their lives.

 

     The Chinese government has tested Essiac on hundreds of cancer patients, and now lists it as an effective

"medicine", as they term it, to cure cancer. The Chinese get their herbs from Canadian sources where the best

tea is brewed, bottled and sold around the world. See www.AllensClub.com. Allen has studied Essiac Tea for

many years, and sells a definitive book on the subject called "Essiac Essentials -- The Remarkable Herbal

Cancer Fighter" by Sheila Snow and Mali Klein. Sheila Snow was a close friend of Rene Caisse. Cessiac, the

version the Chinese favored spelled with a C, and Yuccalive, another potent herbal blend, are available to the U.S.

and Canada from MPS International Marketing, Inc., located in British Columbia. 

 

Far Infrared therapy

Similar to Coley's Toxins and the success of Dr. Josef Issels (see both above), Far Infrared Heat actually helps

kill cancer cells, increases the effectiveness of chemotherapy and reduces the side effects of toxic conventional

treatments. In this approach, heat caused by Far Infrared energy artificially raises the temperature of the whole

body or specific body part. Far infrared heat energy penetrates deeply—four to five centimeters into the skin, the

body’s largest detoxifying organ. Its molecular vibrations “jiggle” the tissues and speed up metabolic exchanges

between cells. At the same time, it boosts the body’s regenerative abilities and decreases pain by increasing

circulation. Vancouver naturopathic physician Jim Chan, who has treated about 5,000 cancer patients, explains

that far infrared therapy has the ability to "break up the protective rings around harmful molecules" in the body so

they’re no longer cancer causing. It also weakens the bonds between toxins and human tissues; so stored toxins

can be flushed out of the system faster and in greater quantities through the skin via sweating, the liver and the bowels.

 

Flavonoids

The following came from a March 30, 2000 CNN news report. Written by Miriam Falco:

(CNN) -- A recent study shows that flavonoids, biological compounds found in more than 4,000 fruits and

vegetables, seem to inhibit the growth of human cancer cells in laboratory tests. The preliminary findings were

presented by KGK Synergize Inc. Thursday at the national meeting of the American Chemical Society in San

Francisco. The study was conducted in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and focused on the

22 flavonoids found naturally in orange and tangerine juice. Dr. Najla Guthrie, president of the research company,

said the results are "very encouraging" that these compounds could be effective against lung cancer, prostate

cancer and melanoma cells. The study also found that synthetically produced flavonoids effectively inhibited the

growth of colon cancer cells. Previous research conducted by Guthrie indicated that components found in citrus

juices were shown to reduce the growth of human breast cancer cells in laboratory tests.

 

Fucoidan

For years, scientists and researchers puzzled as to why the people in Okinawa, Japan rarely get any kind of

cancer. Not only that, they have the world's highest percentage of people over 100. Finally a long chain

carbohydrate, called fucoidan, was discovered in a seaweed delicacy Okinawans love called Kombu. It appears to

have an amazing array of health producing properties, including the fact that it is lethal to most types of cancer

cells. Fucoidan is sometimes referred to as U-fucoidan. Today there are more than 600 scientific studies in the

 US National Library of Medicine's database regarding the medical use of this amazing substance.

 

GEIPE therapy

First reported in 1959 in Science magazine, Geipe is a gentle form of DC electrotherapy (commonly 2.4

milliamperes at less than 3 volts) administered for only a few days. Current experimental evidence suggests

that this new therapy is best suited for treating solid cancers (tumors) such as bladder, bone, brain, breast,

cervical, colon, esophageal, kidney, liver, lung, ovarian, pancreatic, prostate, rectal, skin, stomach, testicular,

throat and uterine. Geipe therapy deactivates the ribonucleotide reductase enzyme cancer cells use for their

uncontrolled growth. In a perfect world, this is the ideal form of cancer therapy as it is simple to administer,

virtually free and fast acting. As such this phenomena works against it - there is little profit anyone could make.

So it remains ignored today by the conventional medical establishment.

 

Gerson's Diet

A rigorous but effective nutritional approach to fighting disease. Max Gerson (1881-1958) became a doctor in Germany in 1907. He developed his diet and detoxification treatments for cancers in a round-about way. He initially began experimenting with diet to treat his own recurrent migraine headaches, and it worked. Gerson began to treat other patients with skin tuberculosis and other chronic diseases such as arthritis, heart disease, chronic sinusitis, ulcers, colitis, high blood pressure, and psoriasis. In 1928, a woman with cancer came to Gerson and asked him to treat her. Up to this time, Gerson had not treated any cancer patients and knew little about cancer. The woman insisted and  Gerson instructed her on his diet regime. Her cancer responded well. Other cancer patients came to Gerson for treatments, some experiencing tumor reduction and/or cancer retardation until 1933 when Gerson was forced out of Germany by Hitler. Because he had observed that impaired liver function always predated the appearance of cancer, he believed that the key to recovery was to restore proper function of the liver. This was done through detoxification. Gerson also believed it important to restore a proper sodium/potassium balance as well as provide oxygen to the cells.

 

Germanium

A versatile, health-giving mineral that is found in high concentration in many medicinal plants. Germanium is a is an oxygen catalyst, antioxidant, electro­stimulant and immune enhancer. Researched heavily in both the United States and Europe, Germanium is capable of strengthening the body's immune system, enriching its oxygen supplies and freeing it from toxic substances. Treatment of human cancer patients over almost two decades has occurred in parallel with the careful scientific studies in animals, establishing its anticancer action and resulting in a wealth of documentation from the human side, as well as laboratory data. Putting together the cancer research studies of the three organic Germanium compounds, Ge-132, Sanumgerman and Spirogermanium, at the cellular level, the evidence for organic Germanium's anticancer properties is solid and reproducible. And, happily, it is inexpensive.

 

Graviola (See also N-Tense)

Nearly 25 years ago it was discovered that the leaf of the Peruvian Graviola tree contained natural compounds having exceptional cytotoxic activity. In other words, they had a very strong ability to prevent abnormal cellular division. In the early 1990s, extensive independent research--including research by one of today's leading drug companies and by the National Cancer Institute--confirms that the tree's chemical extracts attack and destroy cancer cells with lethal precision. Although not yet tested in wide scale human trials, Graviola has been studied in more than 20 laboratory tests since the 1970s, where it's been shown to effectively target and kill malignant cells in 12 different types of cancer, including colon, breast, prostate, lung, and pancreatic cancer. Further it is shown to be 10,000 times stronger in killing colon cancer cells than Adriamycin, a commonly used chemotherapeutic drug. It exhibits the ability to selectively hunt down and kill cancer cells without harming healthy cells, much unlike chemotherapy. Today it is commonly available on the Internet in pill or liquid form. 

 

Green Tea

Exciting research studies have been published on green tea and its anti-cancer qualities. A recent study from Japan demonstrates that green tea goes way beyond it's role as a well-known antioxidant. If the study is confirmed, it will propel the ancient beverage squarely into the middle of 21st century science. One of the factors that sets cancer cells apart from normal cells is that they have telomerase, an enzyme that maintains telomeres on the ends of DNA. Most normal cells do not have telomerase to maintain their telomeres. Every time a normal cell divides, telomeres are lost. When all the telomeres are gone, the cell dies. Cancer cells' ability to maintain their telomeres may be the secret to their immortality. Consequently, inhibiting telomerase and causing cancer cells' telomeres to shorten has become a focus of cancer therapy. The first natural telomerase inhibitor has been discovered: green tea. Japanese researchers have been able to show that green tea extract (ECGC) inhibits telomerase of cancer cells in two different types of cancers in the test tube: leukemia and the solid tumor type. Within a month of treatment, some of the cancer cells began dying. Within three months, most were dead. The experiment has been repeated several times with the same result. Curiously, the telomeres of normal cells will remain unaffected. Extracts of green tea in pill form are now available. 

 

Haelan 951®

Haelan 951 is a promising and popular nutritional-based anti-cancer agent made from fermented liquid soy bean extract. Its array of benefits include blocking cancer-cell blood supplies, enzymatic activity, tumor reduction, and boosting of the immune system. It has also been found to help relieve the side-effects of toxic conventional therapies. Writing in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, researchers at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles say animal tests have shown that genistein, found in soy-based products such as this, stops cells from making stress proteins produced by cancer cells. Those proteins help cancer cells survive attacks by the body's immune system and anti-cancer therapies, researchers say.

 

HANSI therapy

HANSI is a general term Argentinean botanist Juan Hirschmann gave to his family of homeopathic based treatments for a wide range of diseases, including cancer, AIDS, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, arthritis, asthma, and hepatitis. Early experiments in the 1970's led to successful treatments for animal cancers. In July of 1990, he opened his first clinic in Buenos Aires and began treating human cancer patients with HANSI. Hirschmann and his team of physicians have now treated nearly 100,000 Argentineans in three Buenos Aires clinics, and they state that HANSI has produced positive results with every kind of cancer treated. Although the medical evidence from Argentina is largely derived from retrospective chart reviews and testimonials, it is massive, more than enough to justify serious consideration. HANSI International, Ltd., is a Bahamian company with production and worldwide distribution rights to all of Juan Hirschmann's homeopathics. It maintains its production facility in Freeport, Grand Bahamas, and imports its product under the FDA's personal use exemption rule. HANSI International, Ltd. has kept a relatively low profile while it completes requisite studies.

 

Hoxsey therapy

For over thirty years, Harry Hoxsey (1901-1974), a self-taught healer, cured many cancer patients using an herbal remedy reportedly handed down by his great-grandfather. By the 1950s, the Hoxsey Cancer Clinic in Dallas was the world's largest private cancer center, with branches in seventeen states. Born in Illinois, this practitioner of herbal folk medicine faced unrelenting opposition and harassment from a hostile medical establishment. Nevertheless, two federal courts upheld the therapeutic value of Hoxsey's internal tonic. Even his archenemies, the American Medical Association and the Food and Drug Administration, admitted that his treatment could cure some forms of cancer. A Dallas judge ruled in federal court that Hoxsey's therapy was "comparable to surgery, radium, and x-ray" in its effectiveness, without the destructive side effects of those treatments. But in the 1950s, at the tail end of the McCarthy era, Hoxsey's clinics were shut down. The AMA, NCI, and FDA organized to suppress Hoxsey's methods according to a 1953 federal report to Congress and Hoxsey's Dallas clinic had to close its doors in 1960. Three years later, at Hoxsey's request, Mildred Nelson, R.N., his long-time chief nurse, moved the operation to Tijuana, Mexico.

 

Hulda Clark's therapies

For decades, Hulda Clark has been a highly controversial healer. Although many people worldwide worship her as visionary inventor, therapist and humanitarian, just as many attack her as a quack. Parasite removal in the body is a cornerstone of her approach to almost all diseases. Patient screening for various disease conditions utilizes a frequency testing device she invented called a Syncrometer. This short write-up briefly mentioning her long history of medical research and patient treatment cannot possibly due her justice or decide her value in health and healing. Her principle book about cancer, which has sold many thousands of copies, is called "The Cure for All Cancers".  

 

Hydrazine Sulphate

This is a common industrial chemical that was first proposed in the treatment of cancer in the 1970s by Joseph Gold, M.D., of the Syracuse Cancer Research Institute. Its use is based on the fact that a cancer cell is known to derive it's energy from fermenting sugar instead of by burning oxygen, as donormal cells. Gold reasoned that hydrazine sulfate would inhibit the liver's ability to deliver sugar to the tumor and, in that way, inhibit tumor growth. The advocates of hydrazine sulfate claim that it is also useful in combating cachexia, the extreme loss of weight that often is associated with the terminal stages of cancer. More info is at Syracuse Cancer Research Institute's website at http://scri.ngen.com/

 

Hypothermia therapy

A type of treatment in which body tissue is exposed to high temperatures to damage and kill cancer cells, or in the case of conventional therapy, to make cancer cells more sensitive to the effects of radiation and certain anticancer drugs. Local hyperthermia treatment (heat applied to a very small area, such as a tumor) is a well-established cancer treatment method with a simple basic principle: If a rise in temperature to 106ºF can be obtained for one hour within a cancer tumor, the cancer cells will be destroyed. The area may be heated externally with high-frequency waves aimed at a tumor from a device outside the body. Ultrasound is more easily focused than other energy modalities, and can be applied to tumors located from the skin to 8 centimeters (approx. 3 in.) within the body. This allows the treatment of tumors unreachable by other external modalities. Whole-body heating is used to treat metastatic cancer that has spread throughout the body. It can be accomplished using warm-water blankets, hot wax, inductive coils (like those in electric blankets), or thermal chambers (similar to large incubators).

 

Immuno Therapies

This is generalized term which refers to  the many ways and means there are today to boost the immune system.  In other words, treatments to stimulate or restore the ability of the immune system to fight cancer, infections, and other diseases.  Immunotherapy is also used to lessen certain side effects that may be caused by cancer treatment. Also called biological therapy, biotherapy, or biological response modifier (BRM) therapy. In general, the immune system declines with age and is the principle disease fighting mechanism of the body. Most chemotherapeutic drugs will seriously damage the strength of the immune system.

 

Immunocal®

IMMUNOCAL is manufactured and distributed by Immunotec Research Ltd., located in Canada. It is a patented 100% natural nutritional supplement, available without prescription. It is proven safe without any known negative side effects or toxicity. In experimental research and clinical trials, IMMUNOCAL has demonstrated positive results in the treatment of major diseases including AIDS, Cancer and Hepatitis, and against high-grade bacterial infections. Immunotec has been granted patents in Australia, USA and Canada. IMMUNOCAL also provides a powerful agent which delays the aging process attributed to free radical damage. Controlled studies in laboratory animals fed with IMMUNOCAL demonstrated an increase in life span of 30%-60% attributed mainly to increased resistance to disease.
IMMUNOCAL is the result of 18 years of research at McGill University. Clinical trials in North America and Japan are being conducted.

 

Indole 3 Carbinol (See also Di-indole methane)

I3C, as it is frequently called, has been tested and documented in humans and results are highly promising. Indole-3-carbinol reduced or halted the formation of precancerous lesions (papillomas) in 12 out of 18 people with recurrent respiratory tract papillomas. In addition, in a small double-blind trial, supplementation with 200 or 400 mg of indole-3-carbinol per day for 12 weeks reversed early-stage cervical cancer in 8 of 17 women. Preliminary studies have also shown indole-3-carbinol has significantly increased the conversion of estrogen from cancer-producing forms to nontoxic breakdown products. Indole-3-carbinol is found in highest concentrations in broccoli, but is also found in other cruciferous vegetables, such as cauliflower, cabbage, and kale. This treatment would be indicated for those with hormonal related cancers. Note: Di-indole methane is considered a stronger metabolite of I3C.

 

IPT (Insulin Potentiated Therapy)

Special Note Here: Although this website is about alternative cancer therapies, not conventional, there is one little-known method of administering conventional chemotherapies that dramatically reduces their toxic dangers while increasing effectiveness. Yet it remains ignored within the conventional medical system ... except in Europe.

 

IPT is a non-diabetic use of the hormone insulin. Cancer treatment with IPT is far safer, more effective, and less expensive with virtually no side effects. Research has shown that most cancer cells have as many as 10-15 times more insulin receptors on their surface than normal healthy cells. With insulin present, these receptors open cell wall channels which allow nutrients to enter the cell. As cancer cells have far more of these receptors than normal cells, they can strongly compete with normal cells for many nutrients. When insulin is administered to a patient prior to chemotherapy, it opens the receptor channels of both the cancer cell as well as the normal cells. As a cancer cell can absorb over ten times the amount as a normal cell, only a small dose of chemotherapy need be used - usually 10% of the typical amount. The normal cell will be relatively unaffected by this small dose of the chemotherapeutic drugs. Not so with cancer cells - they are destroyed. 

 

IP6®

IP6 is a unique nutritional supplement containing the B complex vitamin inositol phosphate which is further bonded with inositol. IP6 with inositol is found naturally within every body cell, and according to AbulKalam M. Shamsuddin, MD, PhD., in his book " IP6 Nature's Revolutionary Cancer-fighter", the health effects of this combination are greater than that of each form alone. IP6 is also an effective antioxidant. It acts to neutralize the damaging effects of free radicals on body cells and has been shown to enhance immunity by boosting the activity of natural killer (NK) cells. Immune system cells (also called lymphocytes) are the body's first line of defense against a variety of diseases, viruses and other infecting organisms. IP6 has undergone extensive animal testing and human studies. No side effects have been found, either when IP6 is used on its own, or in combination with chemotherapeutic agents. Indeed, Dr. Shamsuddin states that IP-6 and Inositol can actually potentiate these treatments. According to the University of Maryland School of Medicine, IP6 holds great promise in the prevention and treatment of cancer. It enhances the anticancer effect of conventional chemotherapy, controls cancer metastases, and improves quality of life. There are no known drug-nutrient interactions. Dr. Shamsuddin states that he has proven by traditional scientific procedures that IP-6 prevents cancer and is highly effective as a therapy against all forms of human cancer.

 

Iscador® (Mistletoe)

Iscador is registered brand name of a product containing an extract of the Mistletoe plant which grows naturally on the barks of various trees. First marketed in 1917 in Switzerland, and today in many parts of Europe, Iscador was brought to the public's attention in the USA by actress Susan Sommers. The manufacturer/distributor term Iscador a complementary medicine rather than an alternative medicine. It is prescribed in Europe by medical doctors including oncologists. This is in addition to the conventional cancer therapies radiation, surgery and chemotherapy. Its actions are many sided and complex, however it is now recognized that one side of its activity comes from stimulating parts of the immune system that can slow the growth of cancer cells. Many patients also report an improved quality of life such as feeling better and more positive, and also needing less pain relief. For these reasons, Iscador is often included with conventional therapies such as surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Iscador is available by prescription only under the brand name ISCAR in the USA

Issels Treatment

A 50 year old therapeutic system originating in Europe developed by Dr. Josef Issels. Therapy includes: detoxification, nutritional support, supplementation of vitamins, minerals and enzymes, chelation therapy, acupuncture, massage therapy, counseling, oxygen/ozone therapy, vaccines, light therapy, and heat therapy. In short, a truly integrated approach to treating cancer. His approaches are not necessarily meant to replace conventional care, but can be used with it. With the Issels Treatment, so-called "incurable" cancer patients have led full cancer free lives, some for up to 45 years, and as follow-up to conventional treatment, the cure rate is as high as 87%. Known for his incredible successes in treating co-called incurable cases, Dr. Issels  says this about heat therapy: “Artificially induced fever has the greatest potential in the treatment of many diseases, including cancer.”

 

Kelley's Metabolic therapy

The Kelley Metabolic diet. Special mention is required here regarding Dr. Donald Kelley DDS, an under-appreciated dentist, scientist, researcher and humanitarian.

In the 1970s he pioneered a breakthrough diet system based on body types. His system, modified to include certain pancreatic enzymes, has proven amazingly successful against cancer. As his reputation spread, thousands of cancer sufferers sought him out. Despite his proven success, he endured endless harassment by a host of government agencies claiming he was practicing medicine without a license and guilty of "other charges". He was a dentist - not an MD they claimed. No matter his methods of curing cancer had an astonishing success rate of over 90% within 6 months for those that follow his program exactly. Meticulous records kept over the years back up that statistic. This wonderful man is still with us, but now retired. His breakthrough work is being continued by Dr. Nicolas Gonzalez in New York, complete with funding now from the U.S. government so that he may officially "research and develop" a system identical to Dr. Kelley's. Such is the politics of cancer in the USA. May God bless Dr. Kelley. It is indeed hoped he will live to get the long-overdue credit this pioneering genius and humanitarian deserves. You can read his book "One Answer to Cancer" online at no charge. See www.drkelley.com/CANLIVER55.html.

 

Laetrile (See also Apricot Pits)

There is no more controversial alternative cancer treatment than Laetrile. This long standing, effective therapy still remains discredited and banned by the American government after 50+ years of continuous use in 17 other countries around the world. Laetrile, also called Amygdalin or vitamin B17, is a powerful cancer fighter when used in conjunction with other appropriate treatments. The book "Alive and Well", by Philip E. Binzel Jr. MD documents his many success stories using Laetrile. Injectable forms and pill forms are available today, but many people simply choose to eat apricot seeds - a rich natural source of Amygdalin the key ingredient. Some believe the seeds, which are contained within the pits, are superior to extracts as they contain other naturally occurring factors. Note: An Internet search will produce for various recommendations for eating apricot pits. The frequent recommendation is one pit for each 10 pounds of body weight taken throughout the day. A slow but steady build up to that amount is usually also recommended, along with cautions about taking too much too fast.

 

Lactoferrin

In healthy individuals Lactoferrin is a front-line defensive system that protects our body openings, such as eyes, mouth, nose and other orifices from infectious invasion. Lactoferrin has a unique ability to bind to iron, an essential mineral that a wide array of pathogens and tumors use for their reproduction and growth - especially cancer. Presented with an infectious challenge or tumor, a healthy body will respond by producing lactoferrin in copious quantities in the vicinity of the infection or tumor. Lactoferrin then binds with iron and renders it unavailable to the bacteria or the tumor, effectively starving the bacteria or the tumor. Individuals with cancer are almost uniformly immuno-suppressed and unfortunately, conventional cancer therapy doesn't tend to pay much attention to improving immune function. In fact, most conventional cancer therapies damage or suppress the immune system, the principal cancer fighting mechanism of the body. There are a many immune system boosting and restorative products available today that combine Lactoferrin with other proven ingredients.

 

Lymphotonic PF2

A little-known cancer treatment option, researched in Russia and the USA, with an unusual mechanism for destroying cancer cells.According to Russian-translated www.goodbyecancer.com [translation grammar corrected], "Cancer puts your immune system to sleep. Once asleep; it will start pirating on weaker cells. Proliferation and colonization of rebel cells begins, creating ever-increasing tumor colonies. As in a false alarm, Lymphotonic PF2 will pretend to "poison" your system with a herbal non-toxic drink. Your immune response will be immediate and alert to any such invasive attack. It will unleash its defense troops: the K-killer cells, T-cells, Leucocytes and Macrophage and others to repulse the invasion. Not finding any "poison" to fight, and since Lymphotonic PF2 is herbal and non-toxicit will attack and destroy the malignant cancer cells. The above website contains a long list of cancers suitable for this type of therapy, as well as many patient testimonials and research studies.   

 

MGN3

This supplement has been developed by Dr Mamdooh Ghoneum, an Egyptian immunologist at Charles Drew University of Medicine and Science in Los Angeles. This natural immune enhancer, marketed in the USA by Lane Labs, Inc., has increased the lifespan of terminally ill cancer patients by more than 60% according to a recent study. Over 200 patients with a variety of terminal cancers were evaluated for 18 months. Patients given MGN3 plus conventional therapies recorded a 59% survival rate, while those on conventional therapies alone recorded a 33.9% survival rate. (The study, conducted by Dr. Kihachiro Takahara, MD at Japan's respected Sano Surgical Clinic, was presented at the 3rd Annual Meeting of the Japanese Society of Complementary & Alternative Medicine. The official abstract is available at www.lifeextensionmgn3.com.) MGN3 is made from the outer shell of rice bran which has been enzymatically treated with extracts from three different medicinal mushrooms: Shiitake, Kawaratake and Suehirotake. In Japan, these mushroom extracts in one form or another have become the leading prescription treatments for cancer. MGN3 can also be used to lessen the toxic side effects of conventional cancer treatment.

 

Modified Citrus Pectin

Dozens of published studies demonstrate the effectiveness of this little-known naturally occurring compound taken from the pulp of citrus fruits - especially grapefruit. Note that this is not the same pectin commonly available for use in cooking. MCP is thought to be useful in the prevention and treatment of metastatic (spreading) cancer, not as a curative therapy that destroys established cells/tumors. A key mechanism of it's action is to suppresses angiogenesis, the blood vessels that each cancer cell grows to obtain a steady input of blood (Note: see cancer cell photograph at the beginning of this document.) Without nourishment, cells stop metasticizing and die. MCP molecules bind to receptors on cancerous cells as well, thereby preventing these cells from penetrating into nearby healthy tissue. Once this has occurred, the cancer cells circulate in the blood stream until they die or are eliminated.  By working to inhibit the spread of cancer, MCP keeps the body’s immune system from becoming overwhelmed by an increasing cancer cell load.

 

Mycosoft Gold®

Another excellent immune system enhancer based on a complex of medicinal mushrooms. Newly reformulated with thirteen species of polypore mushrooms (Ice Man Polypore, Agarikon, Artist Conk, Reishi, Oregon Polypore, Maitake, Chaga, Shiitake, Mesima, Birch Polypore, Zhu Ling, Suehirotake, and Yun Zhi), MycoSoft Gold is specifically designed to potentiate the immune system with a complex assortment of polysaccharides - precursor nutrients needed by the immune system. Recommended as an adjuvant to conventional therapies, any individual needing to boost their immune system may well benefit from MycoSoftGold. This product has been endorsed by Dr. Andrew Weil, the popular MD, author, TV personality and director of the Program in Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona's Health Sciences Center in Tucson. There he trains a new generation of MDs on how to use proven natural and alternative treatments.

 

N-Tense® (See also Graviola)

N-Tense is a potent cancer fighter which combines some of the South American rainforest's most powerful healing plants into one synergistic formula. This proprietary formula contains 50% Graviola combined with 7 other plants that have similar properties and actions as Graviola. Most people find this synergistic action to provide better results than Graviola alone. All of these plants been independently studied around the world for decades and have documented pharmacological actions. For more information about www.Rain-Tree.com's N-Tense formula, including contraindications, suggested dosages, etc. see www.rain-tree.com/n-tense.htm.

 

Naessen's 714X

714-X is a substance containing camphor, nitrogen, ammonium salts, sodium chloride, and ethanol, and was developed in Canada by French-born scientist Gaston Naessens. Early in his career, Naessens developed the somatoscope, a special microscope capable of examining the blood at extremely high magnifications. Using the somatoscope, he claimed to have discovered tiny living organisms called somatids in the blood of people with serious diseases, including cancer. He believed that these somatids were responsible for the development of disease, and he set out to find a way to eliminate or disable them. Proponents claim that 714-X is capable of curing cancer and AIDS by interfering with the flow of somatids through the bloodstream.  It is further claimed that cancer cells produce a substance called co-cancerogenic K factor (CKF), which protects them from the immune system. 714-X supposedly strips CKF by supplying the body with nitrogen and leaves tumor cells vulnerable to attack by the immune system. Although used as an alternative method in Canada, Western Europe, and Mexico to treat cancer, AIDS, and other diseases for decades, it is not allowed to be used in the United States.

 

Omega 3 fatty acids

Researchers are studying the effects omega-3 fatty acids have on delaying or reducing tumor development in breast and prostate cancer. Since bodies cannot make omega-3 fatty acids, we must get them from food or supplements. The omega-3 fatty acids include alpha-linolenic acid, eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid. Sources and recommended servings of foods naturally high in omega-3 fatty acids include seafood, especially cold-water fish like salmon, mackerel, sardines, herring, halibut, stripped bass, tuna, and lake trout. Also, flaxseed oil and beans such as kidney, great northern, navy, and soybeans. If taking pharmaceutical drugs, consult with you health care practitioner about using these highly essential nutrients.

 

Oncolyn®

Less than a decade old, Oncolyn is an extract of edible plants containing 10+ ingredients combined with powerful antioxidants which have had documented success in treating cancer. This patented formula was created primarily by internationally known physician, Dr. Arthur D'Jang M.D. Ph.D. M.Ph. working in coordination with a team of physicians and scientists from various countries. Excessive free radicals cause cell injury and DNA damage, both of which are associated with the development of disease. Oncolyn targets free radicals and is a proven immune system enhancing supplement. Both approaches help regulating the body's physiology, enabling it to repair, regenerate and restore normal cell functions. 

 

Oncotox®

In use for 25+ years, Oncotox is a liquid combination of five natural cancer inhibitors, all of which have extensive research studies documenting their effectiveness. Oncotox was developed by Dr. Donald Donsbach and it has been an essential part all these years of the holistic cancer therapy program at his Hospital Santa Monica in Mexico. The cancer inhibitors in Oncotox are Resveratrol, IP-6, Lactoferrin, Arginine and Curcumin. 
 

Oxygen therapies

Oxygen is frequently called a cancer cell's worst enemy, and a variety ways and means to increase the body's oxygen content have been developed over the decades worldwide. Many degenerative diseases of our time respond to oxygen therapy. The methods of delivering ozone/oxygen/peroxide into the body are too numerous to describe here. All use purified medical grade oxygen compounds of course. Examples are injection of oxygen bearing compounds, ear insufflation, rectal insufflation, autohematherapy, bagging/tenting, steam sauna, drinking ozonated water etc. Some eight thousand (8000) MDs and licensed health practitioners (including  homeopathic physicians and naturopaths) in Germany use ozone in their practices, while some fifteen thousand European practitioners use ozone, either alone or as a complement to other therapies. Russian doctors have been utilizing ozone for the last 15 years. It is estimated that over 10 million ozone treatments have been given to over one million patients in Germany alone over the last forty years. The medical uses of ozone are well established in many of these countries. There are other approaches like Peroxide therapy, EWOT (Exercise With Oxygen therapy) and Hyperbaric Oxygen therapy. Despite all of this, the FDA still does not approve oxygen cancer therapy in the United States. 

 

Pau-d-arco.com

This South American herb has been used for many illnesses for centuries and is a favorite in all health food stores. It is developing a reputation as an effective cancer fighter when taken daily as a tea over three months time. The taste is acceptable. It must be brewed correctly and a maintenance dose be consumed daily once the situation is under control. See  www.pau-d-arco.com.

 

pH Balancing

The term pH refers to concentration of the Hydrogen proton. Or, some will claim percentage of Hydrogen. There are other definitions including acid/alkaline balance. In general chemistry, acidic compounds tend to expel oxygen, while alkaline or base compounds (opposite of acid) absorb oxygen. A glass of vinegar and water will not absorb oxygen from the air, while a glass of baking soda in water tends to do that. So, pH puts a number on the degree of acidity. Many are convinced our modern diet, rich in acid-forming processed foods, especially refined sugar (one of the worst things a cancer patient can eat), is one reason cancer rates have exploded in the last 100 years. Excessive acid conditions drive oxygen from the body. Many therapeutic diets are designed to counteract excess acidity. As a rule, all conventional foods are acid forming except vegetables and almost all fruits. Even whole grain breads, basic grains and cereals are acid forming. Alternative clinics and hospitals will use acid-neutralizing minerals like calcium, magnesium and potassium to help correct acid/alkaline imbalances in the body. Excessive stress and highly negative emotions can even cause acid conditions.

 

Poly-MVA

Research conducted by the Department of Biochemistry and Cell Biology at State University of New York reports that Poly-MVA clearly demonstrates a remarkable ability to kill tumor cells without toxic side effects. In addition to being a powerful antioxidant and nutritional supplement, it has also show to protect cell DNA and RNA. Further, it helps the body produce energy and supports the liver in removing harmful substances from the blood stream.  While long term qualitative studies on it's effect in human nutrition and health have not yet been completed, early studies and anecdotal information show a wide range of benefits.  What makes Poly-MVA unique is the proprietary manufacturing process by which lipoic acid is bonded to Palladium (LAPd). Poly-MVA is an exceptional product but still somewhat expensive.

 

Proteolytic enzymes

Proteolytic enzymes (or proteases) refer to the various enzymes that digest protein. Proteolytic enzymes have a long history of use in cancer treatment. In 1906, John Beard, a Scottish embryologist, reported on the successful treatment of cancer using a pancreatic extract in his book "The Enzyme Treatment of Cancer and its Scientific Basis". Proteolytic enzymes have been promoted by numerous alternative cancer practitioners for many years. They are currently under study by Nicholas Gonzalez, M.D. of New York, who is evaluating the benefit of proteolytic enzymes in patients with advanced pancreatic cancer in a large-scale study funded by the National Institutes of Health and the National Cancer Institute. This larger trial is a follow-up to a smaller study that showed dramatic improvements in these patients. These enzymes include the pancreatic proteases chymotrypsin and trypsin, bromelain (pineapple enzyme), papain (papaya enzyme), fungal proteases, and Serrapeptase . Note: see also Kelley's Metabolic therapy above. 

 

Protomorphogens

In his newsletter, Dr Bruce West (MD), describes Protomorphogens as the tiniest specks of life our bodies make specifically to grow each kind of tissue or organ. Later in life, they remain vitally necessary for the control factors involved in fighting disease. In theory, when an organ develops cancer, the PMG blueprint of it gets changed. Uncontrolled cell division starts to take place. Today there are over 75 patented PMGs for specific disease conditions created by Standard Process labs in Wisconsin, USA. In early studies, it has been shown that taking PMGs orally for a specific cancer initiated a healing of that organ. For lung cancer, there is Pneumotrophin, for liver cancer there is Hepatrophin, etc. The only place PMGs are available is from a distributor of Standard Process Lab' products. Dr Royal Lee, the lab's founder sells only to Health Care Professionals.

 

Psychotherapy

Research has shown that some form of psychotherapy may improve a patient's quality of life. It can help reduce anxiety and depression frequently occurring in people with cancer. Psychotherapy has not, however, been demonstrated to increase survival in people with cancer by itself. Psychotherapists believe that it can help people find the inner strength they need to improve their coping skills, allowing them to more fully enjoy their lives. It can also be useful in overcoming depression and anxiety, which are common in people with cancer. People may seek individual therapists, or those who work with couples and/or entire families in order to deal with the impact of the cancer and its diagnosis. Psychotherapy also may be practiced with groups, in which a number of people meet together to discuss common experiences and issues and to learn specific coping techniques. Unlike self-help groups, psychotherapy groups are offered and managed by a professional therapist.

 

Radiosensitization

This is a safe, new, effective alternative to conventional radiation treatment. Generally used only once a week,

a radio isotope IV solution is administered followed by a simple x-ray. This 1, 2 punch causes cancer cells to die

off, and many research centers in the United States are now using this approach. PET scans and MRI's in

between treatments are used to track progress of the therapy. The low dose x-ray can be localized to the patient's

particular cancerous area. Virtually no side effects are reported. Just like a CT scan, radioisotopes leave the body

within half a day. Contact www.natural-oncology.org for more info. For what it is worth, this new therapy was

featured on the network television news program 20/20.

 

Resveratrol 

Resveratrol is a member of the bioflavonoid family of fruits and vegetables and has the property of inhibiting certain

enzymes cancer cells use to achieve abnormal duplication and growth. In a recent issue, Science Magazine

devoted an entire article to the effectiveness of Resveratrol in the treatment of cancer entitled "The Cancer

Chemopreventive Activity of Resveratrol." 

 

Rife Technology

An amazing story here. Royal Raymond Rife (1888 - 1971) was a brilliant scientist who developed technologies

which are still in use today in the fields of optics, electronics, radiochemistry, biochemistry, ballistics and aviation

. During the 66 years that Rife spent designing and building medical instruments, he worked for Zeiss Optics, the

U.S. Government, and several private benefactors. Using a remarkable new microscope he designed and built, Rife

identified what he termed Cryptocides primordiales - a extremely small virus which he was able to culture (grow).

He identified it a the basic cause of all cancers and created 400 tumors in succession in laboratory animals from

this same culture. Everything was documented with film, photographs and meticulous records. Next he was able

to use a certain frequency of energy produced by a machine he developed that could destroyed these cancer

causing viruses in the body without harming any normal cells. All of this was in the 1930s. Rife's work was

vigorously discredited by the conventional medical establishment, and it remains so to this day. Many scientists

and doctors have since confirmed Rife's discovery of the cancer virus and its pleomorphic nature, using darkfield

techniques, the Naessens microscope, and laboratory experiments. There are now thousands of websites

devoted this little-known genius and humanitarian, and his amazing contributions to the welfare of us all.

Thank God for the Internet.

 

Selenium

Men and women taking selenium supplements for 10 years had 41 percent less total cancer than those taking a

placebo, a new study by Cornell University and the University of Arizona shows. "Although more than a hundred

of animal and dozens of epidemiological studies have linked high selenium status [in comparison to] cancer risk,

this is the first double-blind, placebo-controlled cancer prevention study with humans that directly supports the

thesis that a nutritional supplement of selenium, as a single agent, can reduce the risk of cancer," said Gerald F.

Combs Jr., a nutritional biochemist and Cornell professor of nutritional sciences. Prostate, esophageal, colorectal

and lung cancer rates were among the most dramatic: patients in the selenium group had 71 percent, 67 percent,

62 and 46 percent reductions in cancer rates, respectively, than the placebo group.

 

Shark Cartilage (See Bovine Cartilage above.)

 

Skin Cancers

There are two little known products that certainly deserve mention here. Curaderm BEC5 and PDQ. Curaderm is

indicated for the treatment of cutaneous solar keratosis, basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and squamous cell carcinoma

(SCC). Since the introdcution iof P.D.Q. Herbal Skin Cream in late 2004, more than 15,000 people have seen 

excellent success with dangerous skin lesions. Website" www.pdqherbals.com. Curaderm, surprisingly, is

available on Amazon.com. www.swansonvitamins.com has it as well.

 

Stabilized Aloe Vera

In laboratory studies, aloe vera gel inhibited angiogenesis - the production of new blood vessels to feed tumors.

Studies in test tubes and animals suggest that active substances in aloe leaf extracts (which contain both aloe

gel and aloe latex) may have immunostimulant and anti-cancer effects. Aloe improves wound healing and inhibits

inflammation. This information has inspired the production of one commercial substance for people with cancer

which combines aloe leaf, honey, and gin. However, studies of the use of this substance in people are lacking

and, therefore, the safety and effectiveness of this product is not known. Thousands of websites and hundreds

of commercial products may claim all kinds of things regarding the benefits of aloe, but common sense should

prevail. One fact cannot be denied though, humanity has used aloe for health concerns of many types for

thousands of years.

 

Tian Xian

A promising new cancer therapy from China, Tian Xian (pronounced "Dianne Sean") is a cocktail of 15 plant

extracts, including ginseng and liquorice.  It was invented by a young Chinese Professor named Wang Zhen Guo,

described as having won many awards in China. The active herbal ingredients aims to control, inhibit and

destroy cancer cells. It's function is complementary to that of western therapies. Testimonials of cancer survivors

are from USA, Japan, Hong Kong, India, China, Philippines, Taiwan, Thailand, and Malaysia. Some can be found

in this site, www.cancer-central.com. More than 20 books have been published detailing the development and

effects of Tian Xian Liquid. The publications, beside English, are available in Chinese, Japanese, Thai and

Indonesian. Tian Xian is available on the Internet, but still very expensive.

 

Transfer Factor Plus

A powerful immune system building complex sold through multi-level marketing. The Transfer Factor Plus advanced

formula combines Transfer Factor E-XF™ with a proprietary formulation of innate and adaptive immune system

enhancers such as Inositol Hexaphosphate, Cordyceps, Beta Glucans, Maitake and Shiitake Mushrooms.

Clinical studies show that Transfer Factor Plus Advanced Formula can increase Natural Killer cell activity up to

437 percent above baseline. Natural Killer cells, or NK cells, are important immune cells that provide a crucial first

defense against infectious agents and diseased cells - especially cancerous cells. Many studies have been

conducted and published over the years on the effectiveness of this product.

 

Turmeric (See Curcumin)

 

Ukrain®

Ukrain® has been tested against 60 different human cancer cell lines at the National Cancer Institute in test tube

experiments. In practically all cell lines a 100 percent growth inhibition was found. One possible mechanism is

thought to be Ukrain® increasing the oxygen consumption of both normal and malignant cells. But while oxygen

consumption normalizes in healthy cells within 15 minutes, it overwhelms cancer cells, effectively killing them.

Ukrain® has also been shown to decrease DNA, RNA and protein synthesis in malignant cells. Although highly

toxic to cancer cells, it shows little or no toxicity to non-cancerous cells in the test-tube. In mice, Ukrain® is

also a powerful biological response modifier (BRM), or stimulator of the immune system. Most scientists believe

that cancer is accompanied by some degree of breakdown of the immune system and can be influence by

improving that system. Unfortunately, therapy utilizing Ukrain® is still very expensive.

 

Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation (UVBI)

UVBI is an inexpensive treatment involving a simple three-step process. A small amount of the patient’s blood is

first withdrawn. Then it is exposed to a stream of ultraviolet light (UV). Finally, the blood is slowly returned to the

bloodstream. The irradiated blood circulates throughout the body destroying bacteria, inactivating toxins and

viruses, and enhancing the immune system. The reason for this phenomena is not clearly understood. UVBI

can be used as part of a treatment plan for colds/influenza, acute and chronic sinusitis and bronchitis, cancer,

emphysema, HIV, chemical sensitivity, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, autoimmune diseases, tendonitis, and even

heart disease. Another application of this blood withdrawing/returning procedure is called Autohemotherapy used

successfully, mostly throughout Europe, for over 50 years. Blood is withdrawn from the arm, infused with Ozone,

and then returned to the body. Autohemotherapy may help regulate the immune system and decrease

inflammation. It too is effective against a variety of conditions. 

 

Virginia Livingston therapy

Developed by Virginia Livingston-Wheeler, a U.S. medical doctor, this complex vaccine and nutrition-based

cancer therapy assumes that cancer is caused by Progenitor cryptocides, a bacterium said to become active

only when the body's immune system is weakened or stressed. Livingston-Wheeler discovered Progenitor

cryptocides during the 1940s. In the following decade, she developed her theory that cancer is caused by this

bacterium and then developed a vaccine against it. In 1969, she founded what is now the Livingston Foundation

Medical Center in San Diego. In the years since then, this center claims to have treated more than 10,000

patients. Livingston-Wheeler died in 1990, but her clinic continues to offer the Livingston protocol to about

500 patients a year.

 

VG-1000 

A specialized vaccine developed by Dr. Valentin I. Govallo, MD, PhD, which undermines a cancer cells defense

mechanisms. This vaccine is most beneficial in treating carcinomas and melanomas, and it is also indicated for

some sarcomas (cancers of muscle, bone, and connective tissue) and in leukemia. Those patients recently

subjected to chemotherapy or radiation respond more slowly to VG-1000 as they have a depressed immune

system. However, patients who have had neither radiation nor chemotherapy respond quite favorably.

Thus VG-1000 is clearly indicated as a first-line treatment for persons with recently diagnosed cancers.

Additionally, it helps prevent recurrence. This treatment is now available at two specialized facilities in North

America, The Immuno-Augmentative Clinic in Freeport, Grand Bahamas, and also CHIPSA's - Center for

Integrative Medicine in Baja California, Mexico. 

 

Vitamin C (high dose)

Vitamin C - one of your body's all-time best friends. Due to a strange twist of fate in evolution, human beings

along with a tiny handful of other mammals cannot make their own Vitamin C. All other mammals on earth can

make it in any amount they require. We need to get our essential Vitamin C any way we can as it's uses within

the body seem endless. Insofar as a cancer therapy, the following website lists 60 references to published

studies showing it's importance :www.doctoryourself.com/biblio_cameron.html. The Nat. Institutes of Health is

now actively sponsoring studies on intravenous High Dose Vitamin C therapy which has already shown to be

successful in the natural health care community.

 

Vitamin D

Getting enough sun? Dr. Joseph Mercola, the man behind the world's most popular natural health website puts it

very well: "If you are facing cancer, I strongly recommend you seek the help of a knowledgeable natural health

care practitioner experienced in cancer care who can help you use nutrition, emotional healing, and other alternative

treatments to help you get well. This should include a reliable screening of your vitamin D levels. Calcitriol,

the most potent steroid hormone in your body, is produced in large amounts in your tissues when you have

sufficient amounts of vitamin D. However, most cancer patients are vitamin D deficient. Calcitrol -- the activated

form of vitamin D -- has been shown to protect against cancer by inducing cell differentiation and controlling

cell proliferation. Optimized vitamin D levels will work synergistically with virtually every other cancer treatment.

There are over 830 peer-reviewed scientific studies showing its effectiveness in the treatment of cancer!

You'll want to elevate your levels of vitamin D to about 80-90 ng/ml, and continue to have them monitored

throughout your treatment.

 

VIBE Machine

Healthy cells, according to Nobel prize winner Otto Warburg, have cell voltages of 70 to 90 millivolts.  Due to the

constant stresses of modern life and our toxic environment today, cell voltage tends to drop as we age or get sick.

  As the voltage drops, the cells are unable to maintain a healthy environment within themselves.  If the electrical

charge of a cell drops to 50mv, a person can become chronically fatigued and may get sick often.  If cell voltage

drops to 15mv, the cell becomes diseased. The Vibe Machine is a 4ft.x 2ft.x 2ft device that gives off frequencies

of energy that restores our cells to healthy operational potential when used over time. A person simply sits in front

of the device 2 to 10 minutes a day. Certain universities and federal government agencies are now conducting

formal studies regarding it's unique ability to restore health. It has been effective for animals - even those with

cancerous conditions, including large tumor formations. 

 

Wigmore therapy (Anne Wigmore 1909-1993)

Wheatgrass juice and sprouts are the basis for the Anne Wigmore regimen, which she originally devised to

cure her own cancer. For decades thereafter, she was successful in helping others using the same approach.

The Wigmore diet focuses primarily on live foods. Wigmore felt that raw vegetables held more nutrition than

when cooked and were without the chemical additives that processed foods hold. Her therapy is still practiced

at the Hippocrates Institute in West Palm Beach, Florida. It has also been adopted by a number of alternative

health care practitioners as the basis for their treatment.

IODINE IS VITAL FOR GOOD HEALTH

 

http://www.newswithviews.com/Howenstine/james37.htm 

By Dr. James Howenstine, MD.
November 5, 2005
NewsWithViews.com

Lack of iodine is widespread in the United States today. For many years iodine was added to bread in generous quantities which prevented iodine deficiency. Each slice of bread contained 150 mcg. of iodine filling the whole days RDA of iodine In 1960 the average diet consumed about 1 mg. of iodine daily with bakery products accounting for about 75 % of the total. This quantity of iodine was enough to decrease the thyroid glands ability to absorb radioactive iodine and it was also sufficient to prevent excess release of thyroid hormone thus preventing many cases of hyperthyroidism (Grave’s Disease).

Forty years ago the food industry decided to remove iodine from baked goods and replace the iodine with bromine. Iodine and bromine appear similar to the thyroid gland and bromine easily binds to the thyroid gland’s receptors for iodine. Bromine, however, is of no value to the thyroid gland unlike iodine and it inhibits the activity of iodine in the thyroid gland. Bromine also can cause impaired thinking and memory, drowsiness, dizziness and irritability. This substitution of bromine for iodine has resulted in nearly universal deficiency of iodine in the American populace. Iodine therapy helps the body eliminate fluoride, bromine, lead, cadmium, arsenic, aluminum and mercury. Could this substitution of bromine for iodine have been carried out to increase diseases and thus create more need for pharmaceutical drugs?

Among the problems caused by iodine deficiency are:

  • Underactivity of the thyroid gland produces fatigue. In rodents iodine deficiency leads to abnormal pituitary-adrenal function. The adrenal gland provides energy and stamina.
  • When iodine no longer binds to thyroid cell membranes enzymes called peroxidases are able to damage these membranes and produce autoimmune diseases such as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and Hyperthroidism (Graves Disease). Researcher Dr. Guy Abraham has observed several cases of thyroiditis and hyperthyroidism that have been corrected by the simple replacement of iodine. For more than 100 years high doses of iodine have been known to benefit both underactivity (hypothyroidism) of the thyroid gland and overactivity of the thyroid gland (hyperthyroidism). Iodine therapy allows the sluggish thyroid gland to resume normal production of thyroid hormone leading to resolution of hypothyroidism. Provision of iodine stops the peroxidase injury to the thyroid membranes in hyperthyroidism which permits hyperthyroidism to resolve. Thus thyroid surgery for hyperthyroidism is no longer necessary.
  • Several human organs need iodine but can not absorb it until blood iodine levels reach high values (stomach, salivary glands). Most persons exhibit impaired production of stomach acid as they age. This impaired capability to produce adequate stomach acid may be a result of iodine deficiency as iodine promotes stomach acidity.
  • Resolution of cysts Iodine therapy resolves nearly every case of breast cysts. This treatment also can heal ovarian cysts and works well on skin cysts when rubbed over the cyst.
  • Iodine is found in large quantities in the brain and the ciliary body of the eye. Lack of iodine may be involved in production of Parkinson’s disease and glaucoma.
  • Lipoprotein (a) This dangerous substance is quite important as it produces plaques in arteries because it is very sticky and collects platelets, calcium and fibrin from the blood circulating inside our arteries. Excessive clotting and vascular disease resulting from high levels of lipoprotein (a) can be reversed by iodine treatment.
  • Other Health Problems Iodine has proven value in treating headaches, keloids, and parotid duct stones.

How Can Iodine Deficiency Be Detected?

An accurate test for diagnosing iodine deficiency exists. Dr. Jay Abrahams has developed a loading test to settle this issue. The patient takes 4 iodine tablets (12.5 mg each). If there is sufficient iodine in the individual the excess iodine is excreted in the urine in the next 24 hours. If iodine is lacking the body retains most of the iodine with little iodine appearing in the urine. Use of this test has shown that nearly every patient with any condition known to be associated with iodine deficiency tested positive for iodine lack. Therefore, it often is sensible to assume iodine lack and proceed to treat with iodine.

However, when a patient takes iodine for several months and has shown no improvement this test can be used to exclude a problem with absorption of iodine. Iodine lack is known to be a factor in the development of breast and prostate cancer. Sixty patients with a variety of cancers were studied. All sixty patients were found to have serious iodine deficiency.

To correct iodine deficiency by taking iodized salt is not feasible. You would need 20 teaspoons of iodized salt daily to get adequate quantities of iodine. Dr. Abrahams has developed an iodine preparation named Iodoral to treat iodine deficiency. This is composed of dried Lugol’s solution containing 12.5 mg of iodine per tablet. A person with adequate iodine stores who takes 4 of these tablets (50 mg.) will excrete 90 % of the iodine in their urine.

Dr. Abrahams thinks that the correct quantity of iodine needed to maintain sufficient amounts of iodine in the body is 13 mg. daily. This is 100 times more than the government recognized RDA for iodine. This quantity of daily iodine would be distributed as follows –six mg. to thyroid gland, five mg. for the breasts in females and two mg. for the remainder of the body. Males appear to usually, but not always, need slightly less than females.

Prominent thyroid researcher, Dr. Benjamin Eskin, has shown that the thyroid gland and skin prefer to concentrate the iodide form of iodine while the breasts concentrate iodine. His research suggested that the body needs both the iodide and iodine form of iodine. This is easy to accomplish with Lugol’s solution developed by French physician Dr. Jean Lugol in the 1820s. His solution mixed iodine (5 %) with potassium iodide (10 %) and 85 % water. Dr. Lugol’s solution killed germs and was used with success in treating infections and many other conditions. This solution in the recommended 2 drop dosage contains 5 mg. of iodine and 7.5 mg. of iodine which is exactly the quantity of iodine recommended for daily intake by Dr. Abraham. Lugol’s solution tastes metallic unless greatly diluted and stains clothing and skin.

A third solution that works well in correcting iodine deficiency is Triodide made by Scientific Botanicals of Seattle, Washington. This has the same dosage of iodine and iodide combined with a sea vegetable called bladderwrack. This can be obtained from natural food stores, Tahoma Clinic Dispensary and compounding pharmacies. This contains 12.5 mg of iodine in the same 2 drop dosage.

Dr. Abrahams recommends taking 50 mg of Iodoral (four 12.5 mg. tablets), Lugol’s solution (8 drops)or Triodide (8 drops) daily for 3 months as a loading dose. Then this dose should be gradually reduced to the 12.5 mg. maintenance dosage under the supervision of a knowledgeable health care professional. Dr.Abraham feels that 14 to 15 mg. of iodine/iodide daily is the upper maximum of safety. This is close to the recommended dose of 12.5 mg daily so caution is necessary in managing iodine repletion. Japanese researchers have discovered patients with hypothyroidism who were taking 20 mg. of iodine or more daily.

Another valuable iodine preparation is saturated solution of potassium iodide. This does not have the correct ratio of iodine iodide recommended by Dr.Abrahams for correcting iodine deficiency but it does have a multitude of valuable healing properties. It can help open up blocked arteries, disinfect water, cure bladder infections, reduce or eliminate ovarian cysts, diminish unsightly keloids, loosen thick bronchial secretions, reduce or eliminate Peyronie’s Disease and Dupuytron’s contracture.

Endocrine Cancers And Iodine Stores

Iodine deficiency is a recognized risk factor in the development of cancer of the breast, prostate, and probably the ovary and endometrium. Breast cancer is twice as common (12.1 %) in women taking natural thyroid hormone or synthetic thyroid hormone as in women not taking thyroid hormones (6.2 %). The risk for breast cancer in women taking thyroid hormones increases with time. Women who had taken thyroid hormone for 15 years had a 19.5 % incidence of breast cancer while women who had been on thyroid hormone therapy for five years had only a 10 % incidence of breast cancer. This increase in breast cancer with time suggests that correction of a iodine deficiency might well eliminate the need for thyroid hormone and would also lower the incidence of breast cancer.

Japanese women, who are eating lots of seaweed, have the highest iodine intake (13.8 mg. daily) of women anywhere in the world. They also have the lowest incidence of breast cancer in the world. Japan has one of the lowest worldwide rates of every type of cancer with the exception of stomach cancer. In addition Japan has one of the lowest incidences of iodine deficiency, goiter (enlarged thyroid gland), and hypothyroidism. Iceland, another high iodine intake country, has low rates of goiter and breast cancer. Two countries with low iodine intakes (Thailand, Mexico) have high rates of breast cancer and goiter.

Patient Studies.With Iodine Therapy

A patient of Dr. Rowen named Betty had severely painful breast cysts. She took 5 mg. of iodine daily with complete disappearance of painful breast cysts.

Veronica, another patient of Dr. Rowen, had advanced breast cancer with severe hip pain from a bone metastasis. Iodine loading test showed severe deficiency of iodine. After three months of Iodoral she still has not restored her iodine levels but her excretion of bromine has increased 10 fold. Her cancer therapy with IPT and artemisin has been stable with only an occasional IPT and she continues with 25 mg. of Iodoral three times daily. Dr. Abrahams relates that he has seen two remissions of breast cancer in persons taking 75 mg of Iodorol daily. Iodine deficiency plays a role in allowing breast cancer and prostate cancer to develop.

Another physician has seen a case of prostate cancer go into remission after taking Iodoral and supplements.

George Flechas MD relates that many of his diabetic patients need lowering of insulin dosage and diabetic drugs after repletion of iodine deficiency. Dr. Rowen has observed the same thing.

Food Sources Of Iodine

Iodine from fish must be limited because of mercury problems. However, sardines have such a short life span they do not get contaminated with mercury. My suggestion would be to buy tins of sardines packed in tomato sauce so you can avoid the transfats used in oil packed sardines.

Brown and red seaweeds contain the most iodine (kombu, focus, etc.).of sea vegetables. You may still need supplemental iodine to get an adequate quantity for repletion of iodine deficiency. unless you are eating lots of seaweeds.

NEW Studies Reveal Alarming Hidden Cause of Breast Cancer

Posted By Dr. Mercola | March 18 2011 | 31,183 views


By Russell L. Blaylock, MD, CCN
 Breast cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer death in women worldwide and breast cancer rates are increasing rapidly. 

A compelling number of studies, though not all, have shown that free iron concentrations in breast tissue, especially the ductal tissue, is playing a major role in stimulating cancer development and eventual progression to aggressive, deadly cancers. 1 , 2

Cancers are Very Dependent on Iron

Iron is needed for DNA replication in rapidly dividing cells. 3

A recent report from the Department of Biomolecular Sciences in Urbino Italy, found that fluid taken from the nipple of cancer patients contained significantly higher levels of aluminum than did nipple fluid taken from women without breast cancer—approximately twice as much aluminum. 4

A number of studies have found that extracting nipple fluid by a breast pump (in both premenopausal and postmenopausal women) is a simple way to study the microenvironment of the ductal tissue, the site of development of most breast cancers. 5

Examining this ductal fluid is an excellent way to measure such things as iron levels, ferritin (an iron-binding protein), CRP (a measure of breast inflammation) and aluminum.

The researchers also found that women with breast cancer had much higher levels of ferritin, an iron transport protein, in their breast fluid, which was 5X higher in women with breast cancer. 6

This observation has been confirmed in other studies.

In previous studies researchers found that one's intake of iron did not necessarily correlate with risk of breast cancer, but rather the release of iron from its protective proteins, such as ferritin and transferrin was critical. 7

This distinction is very important and explains why some studies found no link between iron intake in the diet and breast cancer incidence. 8

Free Iron Can Be Very Dangerous

Over 90% of iron absorbed from your diet is normally bound to these protective proteins. Recent studies have shown that some things we do can cause too much of the iron to be released into surrounding tissues, and if this iron exists as free iron, it can trigger intense inflammation, free radical generation and lipid peroxidation.

Bound iron is relatively harmless.

So, what can cause these protective proteins to release their iron?

One factor is an excessive alcohol intake. Studies by Lee et al have shown that women who drink greater than 20 grams of alcohol a day significantly increase the free iron in their breast tissue and have a higher incidence of invasive breast cancer—the most deadly form. 9

It has also been shown that excessive estrogen can displace iron from its protective proteins, thus increasing free iron levels and associated breast cancer risk. 10 This helps explain the link between high estrogen levels and breast cancer.

Of more importance than the total intake of iron is where the iron ends up that is absorbed from your food.

As stated, most of it is bound to protective proteins, such as transferrin in the blood and ferritin within cells. If you have a lot of extra space within these proteins for binding iron, then a high dietary iron intake would be less harmful.

Previously it was thought that a spillover of free iron occurred only when the protective proteins (tranferrin and ferritin) were fully saturated, as we see with the condition hemochromatosis.

How Aluminum and Alcohol Worsen Iron Toxicity

We now know that both aluminum and alcohol can displace the iron from its protective proteins, raising the level of harmful free iron, even when these protective proteins are not fully saturated with iron. 9

If this occurs within the breast, as this study demonstrates, free iron levels in the breast ductal tissue can become dangerously high and over time induce malignant tumor formation.

The question to be asked is--where did the aluminum come from?

The authors of the paper suggested underarm antiperspirants as a possibility. But, there is another source that is becoming increasingly a problem and that is from vaccine adjuvants.

Vaccines are a Major Source of Aluminum for Many

Many inactivated vaccines contain aluminum salts to boost the immune reaction. Studies have shown that this aluminum is slowly dispersed all over the body and may be concentrated in breast ducts. 11

The amount of aluminum in vaccines is tremendous, especially in such vaccines as the anthrax vaccine, hepatitis vaccine and tetanus vaccine.

Since many American children are being exposed to multiple doses of aluminum containing vaccines by the time they are 6 years old, one would expect very high exposures to injected aluminum.

A recent study by Lucija Tomljenovik and Chris Shaw found that a newborn receives a dose of aluminum that exceeds FDA safety limits (5mg/kg/day) for injected aluminum by 20-fold, and at 6 months of age a dose that was 50-fold higher than FDA safety limits. 12

Aluminum at this young age will accumulate in various tissues and with new vaccine recommendations, children and young adults may be exposed to many more aluminum containing vaccines every year throughout life.

With the ability of aluminum to displace iron from its protective proteins, we may not only see a dramatic increase in breast cancer, but also other iron-related diseases, such as liver degeneration, neurodegenerative disease, diabetes, heart failure and atherosclerosis. 13 No one is addressing this very real danger.

IS THIS REALLY A CURE FOR CANCER?

Even Cancer Doctors are Amazed at How Well This Simple Cancer Cure Works – Even on the Most Advanced Cancers!
http://evolutionezine.com/cancer-cure/

The following special report featuring the revolutionary “recipe” that has been scientifically proven to cure breast cancer — and all other types of cancer — is an excerpt from the popular, doctor-recommendedEncyclopedia of Medical Breakthroughs and Forbidden Treatments.

Dr. Johanna Budwig’s Flax Oil & Sulphur-Based Protein Therapy


erman-born biochemist Johanna Budwig (1908-2003) was acknowledged as perhaps the world’s leading expert on lipid biochemistry — the field of study dealing with fats (lipids that are solid at room temperature) and oils (lipids that are liquid at room temperature), and their activity within biological systems.

She held a Ph.D. in Natural Science, with emphasis in chemistry and physics, and was also formally trained as a physician, botanist, and biologist.  On seven different occasions she was nominated by her peers to receive a Nobel Prize.

Dr. Budwig was familiar with the work of 1931 Nobel laureate Otto Warburg who demonstrated that, unlike normal cells which receive their energy from oxygen gas, the energy that maintains cancer cells is derived principally from the fermentation of glucose.  In Warburg’s words:


“Cancer, above all other diseases, has countless secondary causes. But, even for cancer, there is only one prime cause.
Summarized in a few words, the prime cause of cancer is the replacement of the respiration of oxygen in normal body cells by a fermentation of sugar [glucose] … all cancer cells without exception must ferment, and no normal growing cell ought to exist that ferments in the body.” 78

Warburg’s work never fully postulated the cause(s) of this reversion of cancer cells to the more primitive anaerobic state.  He did, however, theorize that he could raise the oxygen levels in anaerobic cells through the consumption of saturated fats.  Pursuing this reasoning, he unsuccessfully attempted to increase oxygen transfer into cancer cells using the saturated fat butyric acid (which Budwig later determined was not sufficiently energetic to effect oxygen transport).

Building on Warburg’s work, 1937 Nobel laureate Albert Szent-Györgyi demonstrated that essential fatty acids (EFAs), combined with sulphur-rich proteins, are able to increase cellular oxygenation.

Budwig understood that cancer cells revert to the more primitive fermentation of glucose because they are deprived of oxygen to the extent they must find another source of energy in order to survive.  One of her greatest contributions is the discovery of the reason this oxygen deprivation and subsequent reversion occurs. Simply stated, the anaerobic environment that spawns the proliferation of cancer is caused by the lack of sufficient omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids in the diet, as well as the overconsumption of modern foods containing unhealthy forms of fats and oils, according to Budwig.

Essential fatty acids are so labeled because they are essential for life and cannot be manufactured by the body. Consequently, they must be supplied through the diet.  If these health-providing fatty acids aren’t consumed in sufficient amounts, physical processes within the cells degrade to the more primitive form of energy production –fermentation of glucose within a poorly oxygenated environment.  Also, and equally important, is the fact that the modern-day overconsumptionof unhealthy forms of fats and oils so prevalent in today’s processed foods, competes with the uptake and use of healthy EFAs, further limiting their availability.

Although this is a simplified explanation of the physical/chemical processes involved, a more detailed explanation can be found in the references listed below.

Based on her own extensive research over many decades, as well as probable knowledge of Szent-Györgyi’s findings regarding the use of essential fatty acids combined with sulphur-rich proteins to raise cellular energy levels, Dr. Budwig pioneered a protocol for cancer prevention and treatment based on the use of small amounts of flaxseed (linseed) oil combined with a rich supply of sulphur-based proteins.  She recommended the products Quark® (a German cottage cheeselike dairy product), and more commonly cottage cheese, as the best sources of sulphur-based protein.

Flax oil is one of the richest sources of the EFAs omega-3s and -6s, and cottage cheese is perhaps the most convenient, richest source of sulphur-based protein.


Budwig found that neither ingredient alone is effective in either the prevention or treatment of disease.  The flax oil must be “activated” by thoroughly mixing it with the cottage cheese in an electric blender at a ratio ranging from 1 tablespoon flaxseed oil per ¼ cup of (preferably organic) lowfat cottage cheese, to 3-4 tablespoons flax oil per ½ cup cottage cheese, depending on the severity of illness — taken on a daily basis.  Other ingredients such as fruit and honey may be added to taste.

For those who are lactose intolerant or simply want to avoid animal-derived foods, alternatives to cottage cheese can be found in the references below.  One possibility is the product Companion Nutrients® by Nature’s Distributors (800-624-7114), an Arizona-based company that claims one capsule of the dried, sulphurated protein in Companion Nutrients can activate the EFAs in one tablespoon of flaxseed oil.

Because the precise treatment of cancer is so critical, Companion Nutrients might best be used in addition to but not as a substitute for cottage cheese.

As amazing as it may sound to some — especially to oncologists who practice traditional forms of cancer therapy, not to mention the unsuspecting and naive public who have observed for decades the many twists and turns of the War On Cancer — the use of these two inexpensive (and unpatentable) food substances provides a powerful and effective means of treating even the most advanced cancers.

According to Dr. Budwig, “… 99% of the sick that come to see me … are cancer patients who have had operations and radiation sessions, and were diagnosed as being far too advanced for another operation to be of any help.  Even in these cases health can be restored, usually within a few months, I would say in 90% of cases.”

Writing in the Townsend Letter for Doctors and Patients in 1990, cancer researcher and physician Dan C. Roehm, M.D., F.A.C.P., states that, “What she [Dr. Budwig] has demonstrated to my initial disbelief but lately, to my complete satisfaction in my practice, is: CANCER IS EASILY CURABLE; the treatment is dietary/lifestyle, the response is immediate: the cancer cell is weak and vulnerable; the precise biochemical breakdown point was identified by her in 1951 and is specifically correctable …”

According to Robert E. Willner, M.D., Ph.D., writing in his book The Cancer Solution, “Numerous independent clinical studies published in major medical journals worldwide confirm Dr. Budwig’s findings … Over 40 years ago Dr. Budwig presented clear and convincing evidence, which has been confirmed by hundreds of other related scientific research papers since, that the essential fatty acids are at the core of the answer to the cancer problem.” You will come to your own conclusions as to why this simple, effective prevention and therapy has not only been ignored — it has been suppressed!

Dr. Budwig recommended the Flaxseed Oil & Cottage Cheese treatment protocol be followed precisely, according to her explicit directions.  The caveat to this is that many people have successfully used only the flax oil and cottage cheese, without adhering to the other detailed food recommendations her works suggest.

.  60 Lab Studies Link Vaccine to Cancer

.  This is horrifying, please watch.  

http://members.beforeitsnews.com/story/428/775/60_Lab_Studies_Link_Vaccine_To_Cancer.html

 


http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2011/02/18/leading-vaccine-doctor-states-cancer-linked-to-polio-vaccine.aspx

Dr. Mercola's Comments:

For starters, the HPV vaccine Gardasil, which is being vigorously pushed on unsuspecting young girls and women to theoretically guard against cervical cancer still has never been proven to actually prevent cancer. On the contrary, evidence suggests that under certain circumstances the vaccineincreases your risk of precancerous lesions by nearly 45 percent, and an ever increasing number of girls are being seriously injured by this unnecessary vaccine.

As of December 13, 2010, 20,915 adverse reactions had been reported in the United States alone, including 89 deaths, 297 miscarriages or stillbirths, and 370 reports of abnormal pap smears post vaccination.

All of this from a vaccine that has only been on the market for four years!

Making matters worse, as of 2009 the US FDA approved Gardasil for use on young boys as well, and the first male death has also been reported. In September of last year, a young boy died just eight days after being vaccinated with Gardasil.

So what's going on here?

Is it possible that vaccines sold by drugmakers like Merck are causing lethal disease? Judging by history, the answer may be yes.

Contaminated Polio Vaccine Responsible for Human Cancer Cases

In 2002, the journal Lancet published compelling evidence that contaminated polio vaccine was responsible for up to half of the 55,000 non-Hodgkin's lymphoma cases that were occurring each year.

What was it contaminated with?

SV40, a cancer-causing monkey virus. The puzzle began in 1994, when Dr. Michele Carbone, a Loyola University researcher, found the virus SV40, which had never before been detected in humans, in half of the human lung tumors he was studying. Since then, 60 different lab studies have confirmed the results, and SV40 has been found in a variety of human cancers, including lung-, brain-, bone-, and lymphatic cancer.

At first no one could fathom how the virus had been transmitted into the human population.

But in the censored interview with Dr. Maurice Hilleman above, Hilleman admits Merck's responsibility in unleashing this virus via their polio vaccine, as well as the likelihood that there was an importing and spreading the AIDS virus in the same manner.

Just Who is Dr. Maurice Hilleman?

Now, for those of you who may think Dr. Hilleman was just another crackpot (he passed away in 2005), think again. He was, and still is, the leading vaccine pioneer in the history of vaccines. He developed more than three dozen vaccines—more than any other scientist in history—and was the developer of Merck's vaccine program.

He was a member of the U.S. National Academy of Science, the Institute of Medicine, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the American Philosophical Society, and received a special lifetime achievement award from the World Health Organization.

When he was chief of the Department of Respiratory Diseases with what's now the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, he discovered the genetic changes that occur when the influenza virus mutates, known as shift and drift. He was also one of the early vaccine pioneers to warn about the possibility that simian viruses might contaminate vaccines.So Dr. Hilleman knew what he was talking about. And in his own words, "vaccines have to be considered the bargain basement technology for the 20th Century."

Vaccines Can Cause the Very Disease They're Meant to Prevent, and Worse

For years, researchers suggested that millions of vials of polio vaccine, contaminated with SV40, infected individuals between 1953 and 1963 and caused human tumors, and by 1999, molecular evidence of SV40 infections were showing up in children born after 1982. Some experts now suggest the virus may have remained in the polio vaccine until as late as 1999.

Still, the FDA and health authorities turned a blind eye.

In addition, just like Gardasil may well increase your risk of cervical cancer rather than reduce it, the live polio vaccine has also been found to cause polio. And, in rare instances the virus in the vaccine has even been known to mutate into a much deadlier version.  As reported by MSN News in 2009, genetic analysis has proven such mutated viruses have caused at least seven separate outbreaks in Nigeria. 

According to the CDC the last case of wild polio in the US—meaning polio caused naturally and not due to the live polio vaccine—occurred in 1979. From 1980 through 1999, there were NO wild polio cases in the US. Instead we had 144 cases of vaccine-associated paralytic polio (VAPP) caused by live oral polio vaccine.

Polio outbreaks in Haiti and the Dominican Republic in 2002 were also traced back to a strain of oral polio vaccine (OPV) that mutatedback to virulence.

According to a report by Neil Z. Miller of the Global Vaccine Institute, the live polio virus from the vaccine can remain in your throat for one to two weeks and in your feces for up to two months. So not only is the vaccine recipient at risk, but he or she can potentially spread the disease to others.

In 1999, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommended that the United States replace the live-virus vaccine with an inactivated "killed" virus vaccine, which is what remains in use today. However, the inactivated polio virus vaccine has not been without its share of serious side effects either.

Rotavirus Vaccine Contaminated with Pig Virus

Last year, the US FDA suspended the rotavirus vaccine Rotarix after an independent lab discovered it was contaminated with "a substantial amount" of DNA from the porcine circovirus. In pigs, this virus causes poor growth, weight loss, weakness, enlarged lymph nodes, skin rashes, difficulty breathing, jaundice, stomach ulcers, and sudden death.

As expected, both the FDA and GlaxoSmithKline spokespeople stated that the contaminated Rotarix vaccine carried no known human health risks. However, this is easy to say since there are no studies to confirm or deny a link between these viruses and human disease.

In the case of the polio vaccine, the link between the SV40 virus and human cancer wasn't discovered until 40 years later!  It is actually surprisingly common for vaccines to contain various animal matter, including foreign animal tissues containing genetic material (DNA/RNA).

Once the Rotarix contamination was discovered, new technology was used to test eight infectious attenuated viral vaccines, and in addition to Rotarix, two others contained "unexpected viral sequences":

  1. A measles vaccine was found to contain low levels of the retrovirus avian leukosis (AVL) virus—a virus known to cause cancer in chickens. This despite the fact that vaccine manufacturers have been required to use eggs from leucosis-free stocks for over 40 years.
  2. Rotateq, Merck’s rotavirus vaccine, was found to contain a virus similar to simian (monkey) retrovirus—the SV40 virus previously linked to human cancer.

Are you willing to bet that they a) know what they're talking about, and b) are telling the whole truth and nothing but the truth about the potential health dangers of all these vaccines?

HPV Vaccine Now Routine for Boys as Well...

So far, very few parents have voluntarily lined up their sons for the HPV vaccine, but that may soon change. As reported by Paging Dr. Gupta, the American Academy of Pediatrics' 2011 schedule of recommended routine vaccines for children and teens now includes the HPV vaccine for boys aged 9-18 as well.

Folks, this is a disaster in the making. I shudder to think about the statistics we'll see in a few years if parents fall for this nonsense.

I urge you to consider the risks already revealed in the four short years since Gardasil came on the market. Already, there are close to 21,000 reported incidents of adverse effects and death, despite the fact that only two out of every 10 women in the approved age group have gotten the vaccine so far.

Add to this the fact that an estimated 90 to 99 percent of all adverse effects are never reported, and the abnormally large risks of the HPV vaccine compared to other vaccines should give most people reason to pause.

Although the FDA ultimately dismisses all side effects, including deaths, as being within the norm, even they have stated that:

"In VAERS, a higher proportion of Gardasil reports were of syncope [fainting] and VTEs [venous thromboembolic events] compared with other vaccines."

And according to the National Vaccine Information Center, the incidents of miscarriage and still birth events from Gardasil supersede the same event from all other vaccinations.

According to a recent Sane Vax press release on PR Log:

"There is no doubt the vaccine's safety and efficacy has not been thoroughly investigated. And independent investigation on the safety and efficacy of the HPV vaccines, Gardasil and Cervarix must be conducted before there are more injuries and deaths."

What's most frustrating about this is that not a single one of these 21,000 children and young women needed to be harmed or die.

Why?

There are still outstanding questions about whether HPV is or is not the direct cause of cervical cancer. The FDA knows there are many other co-factors involved with the development of cervical cancer, and as of 2003 acknowledged that "most infections (by HPV) are short-lived and not associated with cervical cancer." The same news release also states that "with proper screening, cervical cancer is avoidable, and if caught early, curable."

In essence, three years before the HPV vaccine came upon the scene, they knew that what was needed—if anything—was simply improved screening methods, such as regular pap smear testing for girls and women that are far less risky than getting an HPV shot.

Interestingly, and disturbingly, routine pap smears have DECLINED, coinciding neatly with the release of the HPV vaccine. Between 2007 and 2010, cervical cancer screening rates declined by nearly 7 percent, the New York Times reported in December of last year.

When you consider that the HPV vaccine increases your risk of cancer if you're already infected with certain types of HPV, this is a double-whammy of bad news since rarely, if ever, are girls and women given HPV pap screening before they get an HPV shot.

It's all madness! Not only is the HPV vaccine is one of the most unnecessary vaccines on the market, it is also the most dangerous! And now they want to unleash it on young boys, and they're trying to get it approved for older women as well.

Weighing Benefits versus Risks

Even without a potential contamination scare, there are serious risks to every vaccine. The HPV vaccine is a perfect example. So before vaccinating you really need to be certain that the benefits will outweigh those risks.

In the case of Rotarix, along with RotaTeq (a similar vaccine made by Merck), the benefits are very questionable, especially if you live in the United States or another developed country. Typically, when a child in the United States contracts rotavirus, and most do in infancy and early childhood, all that is required is lots of rest, good nutrition and plenty of fluids to prevent dehydration from diarrhea. This infection also provides natural immunity that will protect your child for life.

Along with showing little benefit for a disease that is typically entirely treatable with fluids and rest, a recent drug review by the FDA found that Rotarix is associated with an increase in pneumonia-related deaths in children, compared to a placebo. 

So with this particular vaccine, children living in developed countries like the US are potentially taking on serious risks with what appears to be very little benefit -- and that was before the contamination was uncovered.

In the case of the HPV vaccine (Gardasil and Cervarix) the choice is clear. It has a high rate of risk and the potential benefits are unproven:

  • In more than 70 percent of cases, HPV clears up on its own within a few weeks or months. In over 90 percent of cases, it's gone within two years, causing no symptoms or disease.
  • Only about 26 percent of girls and women ages 14 to 59 have been exposed to any HPV strain at all; and
  • Only 2 percent have been exposed to strains 16 or 18 – the two that Gardasil and Cervarix protect against – meaning this vaccine is completely unnecessary because HPV infection very rarely leads to cancer.
  • Women whose partners wore condoms during vaginal intercourse are 70 percent less likely to become infected with HPV. That's a FAR greater level of protection than you can get from this vaccine!

For more in-depth information about the HPV vaccine along with the top 10 reasons why you don't need it, please see this previous article.

The moral of the story?

Do your homework before subjecting your children to any vaccine. A great way to get started is to simply use the Search Feature at the top of each of my Web pages and search my site as it contains a litany of research on vaccine safety, and the lack thereof. The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) also provides well-referenced information on vaccines and diseases, such as HPV, rotavirus and polio.

Liver Cancer and Gluten

 

Gluten & Cancer

http://www.nutramed.com/celiac/celiacrefcancer.htm

A striking association is that celiac disease predisposes patients to the eventual development of lymphoma and other cancers. If this relationship is re-stated as "cereal grains cause cancer," the implication is more easily understood. There is evidence that strict adherence to a gluten-free diet long term will reduce the incidence of lymphoma.

High-grade T-cell lymphomas of the small intestine are the most common neoplasms. The intestinal mucosa distant from the tumor contains T cells often of the same clone as the high-grade T-cell lymphoma. It appears that the T-cell lymphoma evolves from reactive intraepithelial lymphocytes through a low-grade lymphocytic neoplasm to a high-grade tumor.  Ulcers may appear in the jejunum and are probably part of the same disease process, occurring when the neoplastic T-cells are low grade and recognition of tumor cells in biopsies of the ulcers may be impossible. Patients with enteropathy-associated T-cell lymphoma have genetic markers - the HLA DQA1*0501, DQB1*0201 phenotype, although additional HLA-DR/DQ alleles may represent risk factors for lymphoma development.

Address Medical School, University of Tampere, Finland.
Source Gut, 1996 Apr, 38:4, 528-30

BACKGROUND--Dermatitis herpetiformis is a lifelong, gluten sensitive skin disease. Patients with dermatitis herpetiformis, similar to patients with coeliac disease not adhering to a gluten free diet, seem to have increased risk for lymphoma. AIMS--This study looked at the occurrence of malignancy and survival of patients with dermatitis herpetiformis and compared the results with those seen in patients with coeliac disease or in the general population. PATIENTS--A total of 305 adult patients with dermatitis herpetiformis diagnosed at the University Hospital of Tampere in 1970-1992 were studied. Most patients started a gluten free diet and at the end of the study 93% of the patients were adhering to the diet. A control group comprised 383 adult patients with coeliac disease, 81% of them adhered to a gluten free diet, 6% had a normal diet, and in 13% the diet history remained unknown. METHODS--The occurrence of malignant diseases and survival of the patients were assessed up to the end of 1993. Standardised incidence ratios (SIR) with 95% confidence intervals were used for the malignant diseases. The survival of the patients was compared with that of the general population. RESULTS--Thirteen (4.3%) patients with dermatitis herpetiformis developed 14 malignant disorders during the follow up (SIR 1.25; 95% confidence intervals 0.68 to 2.09). A non-Hodgkin's lymphoma occurred in four patients with dermatitis herpetiformis, significantly more than expected (SIR 10.3; 2.8-26.3). Thirteen (4.3%) patients with dermatitis herpetiformis died during the follow up but there was no increased general mortality. In coeliac disease, 13 (3.4%) patients developed malignancy (SIR 1.16; 0.62 to 1.97), 31 (8.1%) patients died but the survival rate did not differ from that in the general population. CONCLUSIONS--The incidence of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma was significantly increased in patients with dermatitis herpetiformis. The results also confirm that the patients with dermatitis herpetiformis treated mainly with a gluten free diet have no increased general mortality.

Abstract A retrospective study of 487 patients with dermatitis herpetiformis showed that lymphoma developed in eight patients, the expected incidence being 0.21 (standardized registration ratio 3810). All lymphomas occurred in patients whose dermatitis herpetiformis had been controlled without a gluten-free diet (GFD) or in those who had been treated with a GFD for less than 5 years. The results are suggestive of a protective role for a GFD against lymphoma in dermatitis herpetiformis and give further support for advising patients to adhere to a strict GFD for life.

We report the case of a 52-year-old woman with primary CD30+ anaplastic large-cell lymphoma of T cell phenotype with skin involvement, stage IVB, fulfilling almost all the clinical, histopathologic and immunophenotypic criteria for this disease, associated with adult-onset celiac disease. The diagnoses of malignancy and celiac disease were made during the same clinical episode. The clinical course of the patient has been extremely favorable and she is in complete remission, 15 months after finishing consolidation therapy.

Specimens from 23 patients with enteropathy-associated T cell lymphoma were studied by immunohistochemistry after antigen retrieval. Specimens from 14 of these patients were investigated for the presence of clonal T cell gene rearrangements in both the tumor and the adjacent enteropathic intestine by the polymerase chain reaction. Primers for T cell receptor beta and gamma genes were used in a combination that permits the identification of approximately 90% of T cell receptor rearrangements. Clonal rearrangements of the T cell receptor were found in 13 of the 14 tumors studied. Specimens of enteropathic bowel resected with the tumor, but showing no morphological or immunohistochemical evidence of tumor involvement, showed clonal T cell receptor gene rearrangements in 11 cases. In 10 of these, the amplified DNA was of the same molecular weight in the enteropathic bowel as in the corresponding tumor. In 2 cases, sequencing the polymerase chain reaction product showed identical T cell receptor gene rearrangements in the tumor and in the adjacent intestine. Uniform staining for p53 was seen in 22 of the 23 tumors. In 9 of 19 cases studied, collections of small lymphocytes in the enteropathic bowel expressed p53. In all but one of these specimens, a clonal rearrangement of the T cell receptor genes was identified. We interpret these findings as support for the concept that enteropathy-associated T cell lymphoma arises on a background of gluten-sensitive enteropathy with evolution of neoplastic T cell clones from the reactive T cell population present in the enteropathic bowel.

Abstract The Epstein-Barr virus has been implicated in the etiology of endemic Burkitt's lymphoma, post-transplant lymphoma, large-cell anaplastic CD30 (Ki-1)-positive lymphoma, and in many T-cell lymphomas. A recent report has found Epstein-Barr virus genome in association with 4 of 11 cases (36%) of enteropathy-associated T-cell lymphoma. In a retrospective study, we have characterized 22 consecutive cases of enteropathy-associated T-cell lymphoma from the West of Ireland where celiac disease is endemic. All cases were immunophenotyped with T- and B-cell markers

Premalignant conditions of the small intestine.

Author Ryan JC  Source Semin Gastrointest Dis, 1996 Apr, 7:2, 88-93

Abstract Cancer of the small intestine is rare compared with other sites in the gastrointestinal tract. Of the four major primary small-bowel tumors (adenocarcinomas, lymphomas, carcinoid, and leiomyosarcomas), adenocarcinomas and lymphomas are associated with diseases that seem to increase the risk of developing these malignancies. In the case of immunoproliferative small intestinal disease and celiac disease, both of which are thought to predispose patients to the development of primary lymphoma, treatment of the predisposing conditions seems to decrease the risk of developing subsequent malignancy. Recognition of the increased risk associated with other conditions, such as immunodeficiency syndromes, nodular lymphoid hyperplasia, Crohn's disease, the gastrointestinal polyposis syndromes, hereditary nonpolyposis colon cancer, neurofibromatosis, long-standing ileostomy, and urinary diversion procedures, may lead to early diagnosis and improved survival.

The gut as a lymphoepithelial organ: the role of intestinal epithelial cells in mucosal immunity.

 Abstract Mucosal surfaces covered by a layer of epithelial cells represent the largest and most critical interface between the organism and its environment. The barrier function of mucosal surfaces is performed by the epithelial layer and immune cells present in the mucosal compartment. As recently found, epithelial cells, apart from their participation in absorptive, digestive and secretory processes perform more than a passive barrier function and are directly involved in immune processes. Besides the well known role of epithelial cells in the transfer of polymeric immunoglobulins produced by lamina propria B lymphocytes to the luminal content of mucosals (secretory Igs), these cells were found to perform various other immunological functions, to interact with other cells of the immune system and to induce an efficient inflammatory response to microbial invasion: enzymic processing of dietary antigens, expression of class I and II MHC antigens, presentation of antigens to lymphocytes, expression of adhesive molecules mediating interaction with intraepithelial lymphocytes and components of extracellular matrix, production of cytokines and probable participation in extrathymic T cell development of intraepithelial lymphocytes. All these functions were suggested to influence substantially the mucosal immune system and its response. Under immunopathological conditions, e.g. during infections and inflammatory bowel and celiac diseases, both epithelial cells and intraepithelial lymphocytes participate substantially in inflammatory reactions. Moreover, enterocytes could become a target of mucosal immune factors. Mucosal immunosurveillance function is of crucial importance in various pathological conditions but especially in the case of the most frequent malignity occurring in the intestinal compartment, i.e. colorectal carcinoma. Proper understanding of the differentiation processes and functions of epithelial cells in interaction with other components of the mucosal immune system is therefore highly desirable.

 

Gluten Free: The exclusion of wheat, rye, barley are the initial steps when gluten allergy is suspected.  Gluten elimination should be part of a more comprehensive dietary study, preferably in the form outlined in the Alpha Nutrition Program. The Program  is gluten-free and is recommended as the best diet revision strategy for anyone with diagnosed celiac disease, or any person with symptoms suggestive of gluten allergy.  Learn more about the Alpha Nutrition Program  Gluten free recipes are found in the book, Alpha Nutrition Cooking and Recipes.

 Sound Detects Breast Cancer

 http://www.sciencedaily.com/videos/2008/0810-sound_detects_breast_cancer.htm
Physicists Develop Ultrasound Alternative To Mammograms

August 1, 2008 — Radiologists suspend a patient's breast in water, and then send sound waves through the water in order to image breast tissue. The device uses 256 ultrasonic sensors to assemble 50 to 70 two dimensional slices into a three dimensional image of the breast that reveals cancers larger than five millimeters in diameter.

Each year more than 18-million women get a mammogram. But up to 15% of mammograms miss tell-tale signs of cancer. Now, a new technology that's better at finding cancer and saving lives could be available.

"I was just re-diagnosed in December and this time I had a mastectomy, and it was a little bit rougher ride for me," says Judy Ballard, a breast cancer patient and survivor.

And Ballard's still at risk for it to return. But, she's getting a follow-up screening with a new technology that uses water.

"It feels like a little sauna on your breast. The water temperature is warm, it's very relaxing, it's comforting," Ballard explains.

"So far it's been able to see almost all the cancers that are above five millimeters," says Peter Littrup, M.D., radiologist at Karmanos Cancer Institute in Detroit, Mich.

Developed by physicists and radiologists, the new technology, called computed ultrasound risk evaluation device -- or CURE -- does not use radiation, lasts one minute and is completely pain-free.

"We can get images with a lot more information than we've currently been able to. In fact we're trying to also use this to reduce unnecessary biopsies," Dr. Littrup says. While the woman's breast is suspended in water, ultrasound sensors transmit sound waves through the water. The device measures how the sound waves travel through the breast tissue. Computer images help doctors better pinpoint cancerous tissue.

"Based on the more limited trails that we've done so far, it does in fact to appear to be more accurate than mammography," says Neb Duric, Ph.D., a physicist at Karmanos Cancer Institute.

Ballard's clinical trial scan results are being studied. Other tests show her cancer has not come back.

"I'm a strong person, my attitude was it's not going to get me," Ballard says. A positive outlook to maintain a cancer-free life.

HOW ULTRASOUND WORKS: Ultrasound is a medical imaging technique that uses high-frequency sound waves and their echoes. It is similar to how bats navigate in the dark, and the SONAR used by submarines underwater. The machine transmits high-frequency sound pulses into the body using a probe. The sound waves travel through the body and bounce off any boundaries, such as between fluid and soft tissue, tissue and bone. Some of the sound waves are reflected back to the probe, while others travel further through until they bounce off another boundary. All the reflected waves are recorded by the machine, which then calculates the distance each sound wave traveled based on how long it took the sound wave's echo to return. This data is used to form a two-dimensional image based on the distances and intensities of those echoes.

ABOUT BREAST CANCER: Breast cancer is a type of cancer in which cells in the breast become abnormal and grow and divide uncontrollably, eventually forming a mass called a tumor. Some tumors are benign, meaning that they do not invade other types of tissue, although if they become big enough, they can interfere with some bodily functions, such as the flow of blood or urine. Malignant tumors have cells that can invade nearby tissues. When a cancer "metastasizes," cells from the original tumor break off and travel to other parts of the body via the blood or lymph systems. More than 75 percent of breast cancers begin in the milk ducts within the breast. The next most common site is in the glandular tissue that makes the milk.

(No need for mammograms)

Sound Detects Breast Cancer: article below this one

____________________________________________________________________

Mammograms Cause Cancer


The United States Preventive Services (USPS) Task Force recently released a recommendation that women in their 40's should NOT have yearly mammograms. This recommendation obviously conflicts with those of the American Cancer Society (ACS) and other groups.

But many people wonder if the ACS recommendations aren't some form of recruitment. After all, five radiologists have served as presidents of the American Cancer Society. The American College of Physicians, however, made recommendations similar to the USPS a couple of years ago and the National Breast Cancer Coalition has routinely warned women of the limitations and potential for harm that mammograms hold.

The USPS Task Force found that "Radiation-related breast cancers occur at least 10 years after exposure. Radiation from yearly mammograms during ages 40-49 has been estimated to cause one additional breast cancer death per 10,000 women."

The National Cancer Institute states that among women under 35, mammography could cause 75 cases of breast cancer for every 15 it identifies. There's really very little reason to have regular mammograms and plenty of reasons not to.

Dangers of Mammography 
Mammograms expose your body to radiation 1,000 times greater than a chest x-ray. Alternative Medicine magazine says, "Their ionizing radiation mutates cells, and the mechanical pressure can spread cells that are already malignant (as can biopsies)." Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) is a type of cancerous cell present in 10% of all women and in 15-60% of women in their 40's. A mammogram might pick this up, but, as Dr. Michael Cohen of Sloan-Kettering says, "It may stay there a women's whole life and never invade surrounding tissue...we don't know how to tell the one that won't spread from one that will."

It's treated as if it will. Surgery, radiation, hormone therapy, chemotherapy...a host of invasive and dangerous steps are taken to treat abnormalities that might never have progressed. Since mammography screening was introduced, DCIS has increased by 328% and some believe that 200% of these findings are due to the radiation and pressure to which women are subjecting during mammograms.

Mammography screenings induce a lot of unnecessary anxiety and unnecessary procedures. A large-scale Swedish study has found that 726 of 60,000 were referred to oncologists for treatment, but 70% were actually cancer-free! 
The Lancet reports that of the 5% of referrals after mammograms, 93% are false positives. 90% of false positives are due to unclear readings because of breast density. The creator of the mammogram proclaimed that only about six radiologists in the US could read them correctly.

Another study, conducted by members of the Radiological Society of North America, verifies the fact that annual mammograms may be responsible for causing breast cancer in some women. In those that are predisposed to cancer according to family history, radiation from a mammography increased their risk of developing breast cancer by 150%!

A Canadian study found a 52% increase in mortality from breast cancer in young women that get regular mammograms. Another Canadian study of 500,000 women aged 40-49 found that mammograms found more tumors than unscreened women but no lives were saved because of it. In fact 36% more of the screened women died than unscreened!

All of us have cancerous cells in our body, but our immune system is able to fight them very effectively, provided we don't have nutrient deficiencies or toxicity of some sort in our bodies. It is often the undue stress that occurs when a person believes they have cancer that causes them to succumb to a lack of hope.

Dr. Joseph Mercola agrees, "Just thinking you may have breast cancer, when you really do not, focuses your mind on fear and disease, and is actually enough to trigger an illness in your body. So a false positive on a mammogram, or an unnecessary biopsy, can really be damaging."

Dr. Russell Blaylock estimates that annual screenings increase the risk of breast cancer by 2% each year. The younger a woman is when she starts having mammograms, the higher her risk. Over 10 years, cancer risk rises 20%.

Dr. John Gofman believes that 75% of breast cancer cases could be avoided by minimizing exposure to radiation. Another danger is that the breast tissue of premenopausal women is highly sensitive to radiation. Breast cancer risk increases by 1% for every rad unit of radiation. 10 mammograms increase this risk to 20%, and yet 40% of women over 40 have had mammograms since the 1960's, when the rad dose was 5-10 (rather than the present 2) per screening. This is why Dr. Gofman believes that breast cancer has become the leading cause of death in American women aged 40-55-radiation from mammograms causes cancer.

A Better Option 
Thermography is a new technology that does not use radiation or compression to screen breasts, nor does breast density affect its results. This process measures infrared heat from your body and interprets the information in images. Using thermography can help you detect cancerous tumors up to 10 years earlier than mammograms. Yet even after battling breast cancer herself, my mother does not feel the need for routine screening. She understands that while even safe screening tools like thermography can detect cancer, it cannot prevent the cancer in the first place.

Dr. Axe's Action Steps: 
I highly recommend that women do NOT receive mammograms at any point in their life. A much safer method of screening for potentially cancerous tumors in the body is through thermography. I periodically invite certified clinical thermographers to offer appointments on location at my clinic.


Colloidal Silver

http://colloidalsilversecrets.blogspot.com/2009/02/new-study-proves-colloidal-silver.html

 

New Study Proves Colloidal Silver Decimates Fungal Pathogens;

Even Superior to Popular Anti-Fungal Drugs



New Study Proves Colloidal Silver Decimates Fungal Pathogens; Even Superior to Popular Anti-Fungal Drugs

A recent study (see study overview at the end of this article) conducted by the Department of Microbiology at Kyungpook National University in Daegu, Korea, and published in the prestigious Journal of Microbiology and Biotechnology, demonstrates what tens of thousands of colloidal silver users have already known for years, i.e., colloidal silver is one of the most powerful and effective natural anti-fungal agents in the world.

The study authors tested silver nanoparticles (read: colloidal silver) against the Candida species of fungus (the chief culprit in women’s vaginal yeast infections and the more sinister chronic candidiasis syndrome) as well as the Trichophyton species (the most common cause of athlete's foot , jock itch and ringworm, as well as hair and nail fungal infections in humans).

What they discovered is that the silver particles “showed potent activity against clinical isolates and ATCC strains” of the fungal pathogens.

What this means is silver was equally effective against lab-grown strains of the fungal pathogens and strains isolated from infected specimens.

Colloidal Silver Even Beats Diflucan

The study authors also found that silver was comparable in effectiveness to Amphotericin B, one of the most powerful prescription antifungal drugs known to man, which is often used intravenously to cure serious systemic fungal infections.

What’s more, silver was found to be superior in effectiveness to the well-known anti-fungal drug fluconazole (popularly known as Diflucan).

Treating Fungal Infections With Colloidal Silver

This is of course nothing new to experienced colloidal silver users. They frequently use this powerful natural antibiotic to heal fungal infections of all sorts.

For example, it is now well known that many nasty cases of dandruff are actually topical fungal skin infections in disguise. What’s not as well known publicly is that colloidal silver, put into a simple pump spray bottle and sprayed lightly on the head each morning after drying your hair from the shower will eliminate such topical stealth fungal infections in a matter of days!

Fungal infections of the inner ear can likewise be cured in only a few short days simply by putting a few drops of colloidal silver into the ears each day for several days in a row, allowing it to seep down into the ear for ten of fifteen minutes before draining it back out.

Likewise, fungal infections of the eyes can be healed practically overnight, simply by putting a couple of drops of colloidal silver directly into the eyes, several times a day. (Similarly, Pink Eye can also be eradicated in a few short days using the same technique. And it works great for styes too, which many doctors believe are simply staph infections in the eye.)

Thrush mouth, which is simply a Candida “yeast” fungal overgrowth in the mouth, and is often characterized by a white tongue, can be rapidly cured by using colloidal silver. Simply swish a tablespoonful of colloidal silver around in your mouth two or three times a day, for a good five minutes each time. You can swallow afterwards, or simply spit it out if you prefer. Do this especially after any meal in which sugary products have been consumed. You’ll find the “thrush” symptoms diminishing within a few short days, and eradicated within a week or two.

Athlete’s foot and stubborn toenail fungal infections can also be wiped out by using colloidal silver instead of potentially harmful antifungal drugs that have been known to harm the liver. Simply take a glass baking dish (such as the ones used for baking cakes) and pour an inch and half or so of colloidal silver into it. Then soak your feet for about 30 minutes while watching television or reading a book.

Athlete’s foot can be eradicated in a few short days following this simple method. But stubborn toenail fungal infections may take up to three weeks, or even a bit longer. Nevertheless, you’ll soon notice nice, clear new nails growing in where the old yellowy, or gray-green infected nails were. Trim the old infected toenail away as it grows out naturally, and let the beautiful new, uninfected nail grow in normally.

[Granted, the above-described procedure can be very expensive if you are using commercially prepared colloidal silver products purchased from a health food store or through an internet source. Commercial brands of colloidal silver can cost up to $30 for a tiny four-ounce bottle – which is hardly enough to fill a baking dishonce, much less each night for three weeks. That’s why we strongly recommend the new Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator, which allows you to make a full quart of high-quality micro-particle colloidal silver at a time, for about 36 cents. Your first batch or two literally pays for the entire cost of the generator, based upon the prices charged by health food stores for commercial colloidal silver brands. In fact, when you make your own colloidal silver with a high-quality Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator, each one-quart batch is the equivalent of eightof those tiny four-ounce bottles you find in health food stores for around $30 a bottle. In other words, what you can make yourself for 36 cents would cost you up to $240 were you to purchase it at a health food store. That’s why owning the means of colloidal silver production by purchasing a high-quality Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator is so essential in these days of strange diseases. Get the generator, and make your own colloidal silver quickly and easily, in the comfort and privacy of your own home, for only 36 cents a quart for the rest of your life. That’s as close to “free” colloidal silver as you’re ever going to get!]

Vaginal and Systemic Candida Yeast Infections

Perhaps the most widely known use of colloidal silver for fungal infections is its use by women who suffer from chronic vaginal Candida yeast infections, or systemic Candida yeast infections. Women frequently use larger than normal doses of colloidal silver for a few weeks -- anywhere from two to four ounces daily of a 10 ppm solution –in order to rid themselves of nasty Candida yeast infections.

Internal use of colloidal silver like that against deep-seated fungal infections such as Candida yeast can be amazingly effective. However, for maximum success you absolutely have to remember to re-establish your body’s natural intestinal flora during and after the treatment period.

Contrary to popular belief, colloidal silver does not know the difference between the beneficial bacteria that inhabit your intestinal tract, aiding in digestion and contributing to the body’s overall immune status, and the nasty fungal and microbial pathogens that compete for turf in the same region and wreak havoc on your health.

Generally speaking, colloidal silver kills all single-celled microbes it comes into contact with, good and bad alike. And if you are taking larger-than-normal daily amounts of colloidal silver (such as three or four ounces a day rather than several small teaspoons full per day) in order to stop a nasty internal fungal infection, you can wipe out a large portion of your body’s beneficial micro-flora along with the fungal pathogens you’re after.

And because Candida yeast and other fungal pathogens are such rapid colonizers if there are no beneficial microorganisms in the intestinal tract to form a competitive barrier against them, all of your efforts to heal a Candida yeast infection can end up being for naught. The relatively large daily dose of colloidal silver will kill everything in its track, so to speak. And then when the treatment is finished, the Candida yeast fungus can step back in and re-colonize your entire intestinal tract, potentially leaving you in worse shape than when you started.

The simple solution is this: If you find that you have to use larger-than-normal daily amounts of colloidal silver internally to rid yourself of a persistent or deep-seated Candida yeast infection, be sure to re-colonize your digestive tract daily with Lactobacillus acidophilusBifidobacterium and other beneficial microbes that are native to the intestinal tract.

By doing so daily, during the entire colloidal silver treatment periodand for a week or so afterwards, you will completely stop the Candida fungal pathogen from re-establishing colonies in your digestive tract.

You can do this by taking commercial supplements containing beneficial microbes, such as one called I-Flora from Sedona Labs which contains a “grid” of 16 different beneficial microorganisms that are native to the human intestinal tract. Or you can do so by eating moderate daily portions of high-quality yogurt containing high levels of active beneficial bacterial cultures.

You can purchase supplements containing high levels of beneficial bacterial at just about any good health food store. Or you can get high-quality yogurt with active beneficial bacterial cultures at health food store as well as many larger chain supermarkets.

One of Nature’s Most Astonishing Remedies Against Fungal Infections

With that simple caveat, you’ll probably find, like many thousands of other people have, that colloidal silver is one of nature’s most astonishing remedies against fungal infections.

Perhaps that is why colloidal silver is one of the top-recommended products for healing stubborn fungal infections mentioned in the best-selling book, Prescription for Nutritional Healing by certified nutrition counselor Phyllis A. Balch and her husband Dr. James F. Balch, M.D., who recommend it for everything from athlete’s foot to Candidiasis.

The Study Overview

Directly below you’ll find the brief overview I promised of the new university medical study which amply demonstrates colloidal silver’s incredible effectiveness against fungal pathogens of theCandida and Trichophyton species.

It is too bad the U.S. medical community refuses to embrace this vital, peer-reviewed information. If they did, they could pretty much help put an end to today’s growing epidemic of fungal infections, which can cause diseases ranging from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and fibromyalgia to serious immune system deficiencies, cancer and other life-threatening conditions.

The intransigence of the medical community in regards to its refusal to embrace colloidal silver even in the face of a growing body of new studies proving its effectiveness is due chiefly to the overwhelming influence wielded by the huge multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical corporations. Big Pharma simply does not want to see any relatively inexpensive, safe and natural nutritional supplement competing with their expensive and potentially harmful prescription antifungal, antiviral and antibiotic drugs.

So that’s where things stand. And it is largely why bureaucrats in the U.S. EPA and FDA are working so hard to re-classify beneficial silver nanoparticles (read: colloidal silver) as a “pesticide,” so they can regulate this safe, natural substance into oblivion at the behest of the big pharmaceutical companies. (See the latest blog post on this topic here.)

They don’t want you to know what researchers in other parts of the world are confirming in droves, i.e., that safe, natural colloidal silver is simply the most powerful natural pathogen killer on the face of the earth.

Antifungal effect of silver nanoparticles on dermatophytes.Kim KJ, Sung WS, Moon SK, Choi JS, Kim JG, Lee DG. Department of Microbiology, College of Natural Scienes, Kyungpook National University, Daegu 702-701, Korea.

Spherical silver nanoparticles (nano-Ag) were synthesized and their antifungal effects on fungal pathogens of the skin were investigated.

Nano-Ag showed potent activity against clinical isolates and ATCC strains of Trichophyton mentagrophytes and Candida species (IC80, 1-7 microg/ml).

The activity of nano-Ag was comparable to that of amphotericin B, but superior to that of fluconazole (amphotericin B IC80, 1-5 microg/ml; fluconazole IC80, 10- 30 microg/ml).

Additionally, we investigated their effects on the dimorphism of Candida albicans. The results showed nano-Ag exerted activity on the mycelia.

Thus, the present study indicates nano-Ag may have considerable antifungal activity, deserving further investigation for clinical applications.

 15 cigarettes harms your DNA, finds cancer study on gene mutation
http://www.godlikeproductions.com/forum1/message946389/pg1
Quote

Smokers experience one mutation to their DNA for every 15 cigarettes they smoker, according to a study that mapped out the genetic blueprint of a lung cancer patient.

British researchers led the massive international project, which identified 23,000 mutations that bore the expected signs of damage caused by chemicals in tobacco smoke.

All cancers are caused by mistakes in the genetic code - mutations in DNA that can be triggered by environmental agents.

The scientists hope the results will help them understand the causes of cancer and to develop new treatments.

They found the genetic defects ranged from single-letter changes in the person's code to deletions or re-arrangements of hundreds of thousands of letters.

No single mutation stood out as being the primary cause of the disease. Instead most were 'passenger' mutations that appeared to influence the development of cancer only in combination.

Study leader Dr Peter Campbell, from the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute in Cambridgeshire said: 'The knowledge we extract over the next few years will have major implications for treatment.

That was tremendous! The harmful effects of smoking are numerous.From different kinds of cancer, COPD, heart attack, it can damage every part of your body
- Significant brain damage resulting from lack of oxygen and direct exposure to poisons
- Annihilation of lung tissue and red blood cells, decimating your aerobic endurance
- Hardening of the arteries (arteriosclerosis), destruction of join tissue (arthritis, grout)
- Turning major organs including the pancreas, liver, and kidneys into toxic waste dumps
- Staining and corroding teeth, gums, taste-buds, and olfactory organs (smell)
- Collateral damage to the immune system and cellular DNA from carcinogen exposure
- A major contributor to the leading causes of death, including stroke, heart disease, and cancer and now even our DNA!
It is much better to quit smoking. You are free to read other articles here. [link to stopsmokinghabits.com]
Guys it's never too late to quit smoking.

IODINE IS VITAL FOR GOOD HEALTH

http://forum.noblerealms.org/viewtopic.php?id=6298



By Dr. James Howenstine, MD.
November 5, 2005
NewsWithViews.com

Lack of iodine is widespread in the United States today. For many years iodine was added to bread in generous quantities which prevented iodine deficiency. Each slice of bread contained 150 mcg. of iodine filling the whole days RDA of iodine In 1960 the average diet consumed about 1 mg. of iodine daily with bakery products accounting for about 75 % of the total. This quantity of iodine was enough to decrease the thyroid glands ability to absorb radioactive iodine and it was also sufficient to prevent excess release of thyroid hormone thus preventing many cases of hyperthyroidism (Grave’s Disease).

Forty years ago the food industry decided to remove iodine from baked goods and replace the iodine with bromine. Iodine and bromine appear similar to the thyroid gland and bromine easily binds to the thyroid gland’s receptors for iodine. Bromine, however, is of no value to the thyroid gland unlike iodine and it inhibits the activity of iodine in the thyroid gland. Bromine also can cause impaired thinking and memory, drowsiness, dizziness and irritability. This substitution of bromine for iodine has resulted in nearly universal deficiency of iodine in the American populace. Iodine therapy helps the body eliminate fluoride, bromine, lead, cadmium, arsenic, aluminum and mercury. Could this substitution of bromine for iodine have been carried out to increase diseases and thus create more need for pharmaceutical drugs?

Among the problems caused by iodine deficiency are:

    *
      Underactivity of the thyroid gland produces fatigue. In rodents iodine deficiency leads to abnormal pituitary-adrenal function. The adrenal gland provides energy and stamina.
    *
      When iodine no longer binds to thyroid cell membranes enzymes called peroxidases are able to damage these membranes and produce autoimmune diseases such as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and Hyperthroidism (Graves Disease). Researcher Dr. Guy Abraham has observed several cases of thyroiditis and hyperthyroidism that have been corrected by the simple replacement of iodine. For more than 100 years high doses of iodine have been known to benefit both underactivity (hypothyroidism) of the thyroid gland and overactivity of the thyroid gland (hyperthyroidism). Iodine therapy allows the sluggish thyroid gland to resume normal production of thyroid hormone leading to resolution of hypothyroidism. Provision of iodine stops the peroxidase injury to the thyroid membranes in hyperthyroidism which permits hyperthyroidism to resolve. Thus thyroid surgery for hyperthyroidism is no longer necessary.
    *
      Several human organs need iodine but can not absorb it until blood iodine levels reach high values (stomach, salivary glands). Most persons exhibit impaired production of stomach acid as they age. This impaired capability to produce adequate stomach acid may be a result of iodine deficiency as iodine promotes stomach acidity.
    *
      Resolution of cysts Iodine therapy resolves nearly every case of breast cysts. This treatment also can heal ovarian cysts and works well on skin cysts when rubbed over the cyst.
    *
      Iodine is found in large quantities in the brain and the ciliary body of the eye. Lack of iodine may be involved in production of Parkinson’s disease and glaucoma.
    *
      Lipoprotein (a) This dangerous substance is quite important as it produces plaques in arteries because it is very sticky and collects platelets, calcium and fibrin from the blood circulating inside our arteries. Excessive clotting and vascular disease resulting from high levels of lipoprotein (a) can be reversed by iodine treatment.
    *
      Other Health Problems Iodine has proven value in treating headaches, keloids, and parotid duct stones.

How Can Iodine Deficiency Be Detected?

An accurate test for diagnosing iodine deficiency exists. Dr. Jay Abrahams has developed a loading test to settle this issue. The patient takes 4 iodine tablets (12.5 mg each). If there is sufficient iodine in the individual the excess iodine is excreted in the urine in the next 24 hours. If iodine is lacking the body retains most of the iodine with little iodine appearing in the urine. Use of this test has shown that nearly every patient with any condition known to be associated with iodine deficiency tested positive for iodine lack. Therefore, it often is sensible to assume iodine lack and proceed to treat with iodine.

However, when a patient takes iodine for several months and has shown no improvement this test can be used to exclude a problem with absorption of iodine. Iodine lack is known to be a factor in the development of breast and prostate cancer. Sixty patients with a variety of cancers were studied. All sixty patients were found to have serious iodine deficiency.

To correct iodine deficiency by taking iodized salt is not feasible. You would need 20 teaspoons of iodized salt daily to get adequate quantities of iodine. Dr. Abrahams has developed an iodine preparation named Iodoral to treat iodine deficiency. This is composed of dried Lugol’s solution containing 12.5 mg of iodine per tablet. A person with adequate iodine stores who takes 4 of these tablets (50 mg.) will excrete 90 % of the iodine in their urine.

Dr. Abrahams thinks that the correct quantity of iodine needed to maintain sufficient amounts of iodine in the body is 13 mg. daily. This is 100 times more than the government recognized RDA for iodine. This quantity of daily iodine would be distributed as follows –six mg. to thyroid gland, five mg. for the breasts in females and two mg. for the remainder of the body. Males appear to usually, but not always, need slightly less than females.

Prominent thyroid researcher, Dr. Benjamin Eskin, has shown that the thyroid gland and skin prefer to concentrate the iodide form of iodine while the breasts concentrate iodine. His research suggested that the body needs both the iodide and iodine form of iodine. This is easy to accomplish with Lugol’s solution developed by French physician Dr. Jean Lugol in the 1820s. His solution mixed iodine (5 %) with potassium iodide (10 %) and 85 % water. Dr. Lugol’s solution killed germs and was used with success in treating infections and many other conditions. This solution in the recommended 2 drop dosage contains 5 mg. of iodine and 7.5 mg. of iodine which is exactly the quantity of iodine recommended for daily intake by Dr. Abraham. Lugol’s solution tastes metallic unless greatly diluted and stains clothing and skin.

A third solution that works well in correcting iodine deficiency is Triodide made by Scientific Botanicals of Seattle, Washington. This has the same dosage of iodine and iodide combined with a sea vegetable called bladderwrack. This can be obtained from natural food stores, Tahoma Clinic Dispensary and compounding pharmacies. This contains 12.5 mg of iodine in the same 2 drop dosage.

Dr. Abrahams recommends taking 50 mg of Iodoral (four 12.5 mg. tablets), Lugol’s solution (8 drops)or Triodide (8 drops) daily for 3 months as a loading dose. Then this dose should be gradually reduced to the 12.5 mg. maintenance dosage under the supervision of a knowledgeable health care professional. Dr.Abraham feels that 14 to 15 mg. of iodine/iodide daily is the upper maximum of safety. This is close to the recommended dose of 12.5 mg daily so caution is necessary in managing iodine repletion. Japanese researchers have discovered patients with hypothyroidism who were taking 20 mg. of iodine or more daily.

Another valuable iodine preparation is saturated solution of potassium iodide. This does not have the correct ratio of iodine iodide recommended by Dr.Abrahams for correcting iodine deficiency but it does have a multitude of valuable healing properties. It can help open up blocked arteries, disinfect water, cure bladder infections, reduce or eliminate ovarian cysts, diminish unsightly keloids, loosen thick bronchial secretions, reduce or eliminate Peyronie’s Disease and Dupuytron’s contracture.

Endocrine Cancers And Iodine Stores

Iodine deficiency is a recognized risk factor in the development of cancer of the breast, prostate, and probably the ovary and endometrium. Breast cancer is twice as common (12.1 %) in women taking natural thyroid hormone or synthetic thyroid hormone as in women not taking thyroid hormones (6.2 %). The risk for breast cancer in women taking thyroid hormones increases with time. Women who had taken thyroid hormone for 15 years had a 19.5 % incidence of breast cancer while women who had been on thyroid hormone therapy for five years had only a 10 % incidence of breast cancer. This increase in breast cancer with time suggests that correction of a iodine deficiency might well eliminate the need for thyroid hormone and would also lower the incidence of breast cancer.

Japanese women, who are eating lots of seaweed, have the highest iodine intake (13.8 mg. daily) of women anywhere in the world. They also have the lowest incidence of breast cancer in the world. Japan has one of the lowest worldwide rates of every type of cancer with the exception of stomach cancer. In addition Japan has one of the lowest incidences of iodine deficiency, goiter (enlarged thyroid gland), and hypothyroidism. Iceland, another high iodine intake country, has low rates of goiter and breast cancer. Two countries with low iodine intakes (Thailand, Mexico) have high rates of breast cancer and goiter.

Patient Studies.With Iodine Therapy

A patient of Dr. Rowen named Betty had severely painful breast cysts. She took 5 mg. of iodine daily with complete disappearance of painful breast cysts.

Veronica, another patient of Dr. Rowen, had advanced breast cancer with severe hip pain from a bone metastasis. Iodine loading test showed severe deficiency of iodine. After three months of Iodoral she still has not restored her iodine levels but her excretion of bromine has increased 10 fold. Her cancer therapy with IPT and artemisin has been stable with only an occasional IPT and she continues with 25 mg. of Iodoral three times daily. Dr. Abrahams relates that he has seen two remissions of breast cancer in persons taking 75 mg of Iodorol daily. Iodine deficiency plays a role in allowing breast cancer and prostate cancer to develop.

Another physician has seen a case of prostate cancer go into remission after taking Iodoral and supplements.

George Flechas MD relates that many of his diabetic patients need lowering of insulin dosage and diabetic drugs after repletion of iodine deficiency. Dr. Rowen has observed the same thing.

Food Sources Of Iodine

Iodine from fish must be limited because of mercury problems. However, sardines have such a short life span they do not get contaminated with mercury. My suggestion would be to buy tins of sardines packed in tomato sauce so you can avoid the transfats used in oil packed sardines.

Brown and red seaweeds contain the most iodine (kombu, focus, etc.).of sea vegetables. You may still need supplemental iodine to get an adequate quantity for repletion of iodine deficiency. unless you are eating lots of seaweeds.

Iodoral can be purchased from Optimox 310-618-9870 if you are willing to buy a case. Otherwise you can probably find this in health food stores. Lugol’s solution is a satisfactory way to obtain iodine but you will need a prescription. The dose is 2 drops daily. Be careful in measuring as 3 drops daily can lead to toxic symptoms.

The evidence presented here proves that iodine is vital to human health. Many persons will experience improved health when their iodine deficiency is corrected. 

Acupuncture and Prostate Cancer

 

http://www.acupuncture.com/newsletters/m_nov05/main3.htm


By Ban Wong, L.Ac.
 

The American Cancer Society classifies prostate cancer as the most common form of cancer among U.S. men. According to recent projections, of the 232,090 new cases to be diagnosed, about 30,350 men will die from prostate cancer. If you are a man over the age of 40 and prostate cancer runs in your family, it is extremely advisable to monitor your Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) levels. A PSA blood test measures the level of a protein released by prostate cells. Recent experts state that if a PSA level is 2.5 or higher, it reveals the possibility of prostate growth (hyperplasia), but it does not always mean that cancer is present. Since PSA levels may fluctuate with infection and lab errors, usually more than one test over a period of time is done to confirm your PSA level. Digital Rectal Exam (DRE) and ultrasound are other ways to evaluate the prostate. However, only biopsies can truly determine whether the growth in the prostate is benign or malignant. 

The prostate gland lies at the base of the bladder surrounding the urethra (urinary tract from bladder to penis). During ejaculation, the prostate secretes a fluid that combines with the seminal fluid in order to prevent infection in the urethra while protecting and invigorating sperm. Due to the aging process, the prostate naturally enlarges as hormones change and weaken after the age of 40. The swelling of the prostate puts pressure against the bladder and urethra, thereby affecting the smooth flow of urine. Abnormal patterns of urination such as higher frequency at night, burning sensation, difficulty, blockage and dribbling are common symptoms and signs of prostate enlargement. 

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Approach to Prostate Care 

TCM associates hyperplasia of the prostate with damp heat and kidney deficiency. After the age of 40, one's vital energy in the kidney system decreases, resulting in the disturbance of sex hormones. This process also decreases one's sexual energy, which affects the function of the prostate and the circulation in this region. Throughout the ages, in order to compensate for the decline of prostate function, men in China have used regular acupuncture treatments to improve the circulation and energy in the prostate. To enhance the effect of acupuncture, they have also used Chinese herbs such as He Shou Wu, in traditional, custom herbal formulas to replenish the kidney essence. Kidney essence nurtures the prostate. As the prostate is revitalized, it is now capable of self-regulating toward normal functioning and maintaining a balance of growth and non-growth. This is the balancing properties of Chinese medicine. 

Diet and Lifestyle Recommendations 

TCM nutrition encourages men to eat more nuts, seeds, pumpkin, mushroom and berries to help nourish their prostates. Managing stress, regular exercise and massaging the prostate are also vital to help maintain prostate health. Besides Chinese herbs and western herbs such as saw palmetto, there are many delicious foods that you can eat to help maintain a healthy prostate. Regular consumption of foods that contain lycopene (a prostate protective antioxidant) is highly recommended. The following are foods that contain lycopene: watermelon, pink grapefruit, guava, papaya, apricot and cooked tomatoes (tomato paste, tomato soup, tomato juice and marinara sauce). Nutrition experts have expressed concern that pesticides and herbicides in animal products may trigger cancer growth. This may be another good reason for you to eat more organic fruits and vegetables and avoid saturated, high-fat animal products and snacks that contain hydrogenated or partially-hydrogenated oils. These diet and lifestyle recommendations may help prevent this pervasive cancer and help invigorate your body.

  1. Acupuncture and Your Prostate Problems

    East Meets West: Effective Treatment for Prostate Problems

    Discomfort from Prostate Enlargement Can Be
    Drastically Reduced with Acupuncture

     

    Between ages 40 and 59, 60% of men already encounter an enlarged prostate or benign prostate hypertrophy (BPH). Seventy five percent of men near age 60 have this condition. Only one in five men at the age of 80 or older will not incur BPH. Many men may not have any symptoms at beginning, but when the gland enlarges enough it can result in a gradual squeezing of the urethra and cause a weak urinary stream, difficulty starting urination, frequent urination and frequently awakening at night to urinate. Blockage of the urethra from BPH may lead to repeated urinary tract infections, a sudden inability to urinate or gradual bladder and / or kidney damage.

    Western treatments for prostate problems like BPH can consist of pharmaceutical drugs such as Flomax, which is an alpha-adrenergic blocker. As with most drugs, Flomax can cause side effects that may impair thinking or reactions.

    According to Karen Siegel Propis, MPH, MS, RD, LD, LAc, “Patients should get a firm western diagnosis and then seek treatment options. I am often referred patients by physicians and always defer to them when it comes to medication.” Studies have confirmed that acupuncture is as effective as drug therapy treatments, and often used in combined treatments plans. Acupuncture in conjunction with herbology (herbal medicine) can also help wean patients off medication. As men age, the prostate may become a source of concern. The most common prostate problems are Prostatitis (inflammation) and BPH (prostate enlargement). Chinese medicine has herbs and herbal formulas that are effective in treating these conditions. The formulas target the kidney, bladder and urethra to promote urination, reduce smooth muscle pain and reduce the chance of developing kidney stones. Herbs are effective in treating bacterial infection, difficult urination, night-time urination, reducing toxins and promoting general circulation as well.

    Many men express concern about where the needles are placed to treat prostate problems. Point locations are along the leg and foot, stomach and back and are not painful. The points are chosen along channels that go to the areas being treated rather than local points at the area.

    “Acupuncture is an effective way to bring the body back into balance,” remarks Karen. It is a more than 2000 year-old Chinese system of healing that places very fine needles in strategic areas of the body to promote healing of its unhealthy parts. The flow of Qi (chee) and blood through established channels or meridians in the body is stimulated by placing a small needle in a specific area to bring more Qi and blood to the painful area. Qi is not definable in western medical terminology. It signifies movement or energy. The reason for most ailments is some kind of blockage in the body; the system is gridlocked. Stimulating the Qi and blood opens avenues to allow the body to heal itself.

Colloidal Silver Cures the Deadly MRSA Superpathogen

(So Why Are the Bureaucrats Trying to Destroy Your Right to Use It?)

Colloidal Silver Cures the Deadly MRSA Superpathogen

(So Why Are the Bureaucrats Trying to Destroy Your Right to Use It?)

CNN has finally reported on the MRSA superbug epidemic (see CNN news video atthis youtube.com link).

They’ve revealed to viewers that a new study published in the prestigious Journal of the American Medical Association says there are now more than 94,000 potentially deadly MRSA infections per year in the U.S., and that MRSA now kills more people every year in the U.S. than AIDS.

What they have not told their viewers is that the safe, all-natural cure for MRSA has been known for over 20 years. Of course, it iscolloidal silver.

The (All-Natural) Cure for MRSA : Known for 20 Years

Of course, the cure for MRSA has been known for over 20 years. It was discovered by Dr. Robert O. Becker, MD during his groundbreaking research on electrically generated silver ions at Syracuse Medical University back in the mid-1980’s. But because the cure – tiny particles of mineral silver known as colloidal silver -- is completely natural, the FDA has quashed any mention of the findings.

In fact, the FDA has even gone so far as to pass a ruling in 1999 stating that colloidal silver is “ineffective” for infection-fighting purposes, and is “misbranded” if its infection-fighting powers are mentioned on labels or in advertising. This, even though colloidal silver has a bona-fide 90-year history of medical studies going all of the way back to the 1920’s demonstrating its startling effectiveness against infectious illness and disease.

New Medical Studies Prove Colloidal Silver Works

Thankfully, four brand new studies from medical universities in different parts of the world have demonstrated that colloidal silver is the flat-out, no-holds-barred cure for MRSA.

You can read about these little-known studies here, along with fascinating information on how colloidal silver is already being used in European hospitals to prevent surgery patients from contracting MRSA infections while hospitalized.

You’ll discover that European hospitals are light years ahead of the game when it comes to preventing and treating MRSA infections. For example, they give hospital patients special gowns made out of a newly invented cloth material that has tiny particles of silver woven into it. And they even have a machine that sprays a fine micro-mist of colloidal silver throughout hospitals, thereby killing colonies of MRSA before they can infect humans.

Protecting the Turf of Big Pharma

Why won’t the FDA and the AMA let the American public know about this astonishing cure for MRSA, even as 90,000 Americans a year are becoming infected with this potentially lethal flesh-eating pathogen?

The answer is simple: They are protecting the turf of Big Pharma.

You see, the pharmaceutical industry is a multi-billion dollar a year industry that is completely dependent upon the vast majority of people being brainwashed into the idea that only prescription drugs can help them cure their illnesses. And the FDA and AMA are the enforcement arms of Big Pharma.

So the FDA makes war against natural cures, while the AMA makes war against natural health care practitioners. Between the two of them, they make sure the multitudes remain fixated on the orthodox medical community as their sole source of help for their health and medical problems.

What’s truly sad – nay, pathetic -- is that these organizations would rather allow people to die in agony from a disease that orthodox medicine can’t cure – such as MRSA -- than to let the public know there is a safe, natural cure available.

MRSA now infects over 94,000 Americans each year and kills nearly 20,000 of them, surpassing even deaths from AIDS! You would think the medical bureaucrats would be shouting from the rooftops, telling the public about colloidal silver’s astonishing ability to decimate the MRSA pathogen.

But no. Instead, their blind loyalty to big pharma overrides every human (and humane) consideration, and they work to relegate colloidal silver into the ashcan of history, instead.

Enter the EPA…

To make matters worse, the Environmental Protection Agency has now entered the fray, claiming the right to regulate silver products – including colloidal silver -- as “pesticides.”

They claim that if colloidal silver gets into the nation’s waterways and eco-system, it could wipe out “ecologically sensitive” microorganism the environment depends on. Therefore, they say, colloidal silver manufacturers need to register their products with the EPA, which requires lab testing and environmental impact reports costing hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars.

In essence, EPA is angling to put colloidal silver distributors out of business for good by making it too expensive to legally make and sell colloidal silver.

Of course, in spite of EPA rhetoric to the contrary, silver has been abundant in nature for millions of years. And it has never been shown to harm the environment. Even when silver that has been taken from the environment and sliced into tiny particles through the process of electrolysis in order to make colloidal silver, and then returned to the environment through sewage systems or other means, it has never been demonstrated to cause any harm.

That’s because, when returned to the environment, the tiny, electrically charged micro-particles of silver found in colloidal silver tend to very rapidly bond with other substances in the environment, such as minerals, salts and other natural substances (this process is called “agglomeration”). This bonding process in effect neutralizes silver’s toxicity to microbes, and essentially returns the silver to its natural state.

EPA ignores this simple, high school science, and claims the right to “protect the environment” from imminent doom by regulating silver under its archaic FIFRA pesticide regulations. (For more on this issue, see the blog posts at this link, and this link, and this link.)

If you’d like to help in the battle to save colloidal silver from EPA regulation, you can let the EPA know what you think about their plan to regulate silver products – including colloidal silver – at this link.

Attacked from Many Angles

As you can see, colloidal silver is under attack from many different angles today.

The news media won’t even mention it, except derogatorily from time to time. The FDA passes regulations claiming it is “ineffective,” and threatens huge fines against anyone who touts its well-known antibiotic qualities. The AMA persecutes natural health care practitioners who use it. And now the EPA now claims it is so effective against microorganisms, they need to regulate it as a “pesticide” to prevent it from harming “ecologically sensitive” microbes in the environment.

Amazing, isn’t it?

One has to wonder why this is happening, considering colloidal silver phenomenal, proven ability to decimate many of the most infectious superbugs such as MRSA that now plague our nation and the world at large.

But you don’t have to look much further than big pharma and the drug industry if you truly want to understand why this safe, simple and often miraculously healing substance is under such vicious attack.

Considering the fact that the bureaucratic attacks against colloidal silver are growing stronger by the day, and that colloidal silver may therefore soon not be available commercially, owning the means of colloidal silver production is probably the smartest thing you can do right now. That way, if the bureaucrats succeed in taking colloidal silver off the market, you can always make your own, quickly, easily and inexpensively. It’s extremely easy to do, as this short, three minute video demonstrates.

Take Back Your Power!

Dr. Bob Beck, Ph.D, was one of the world’s most ardent advocates of colloidal silver usage. Before he died from heart failure at the age of 77 in 2002, he tirelessly lectured around the country on colloidal silver and other natural healing modalities, urging audiences to “Take back your power!” from the perverse medical Gestapo that has become so deeply entrenched within the orthodox medical community over the past twenty years.

Today, it is more important than ever to learn how to “Take back your power!” After all, the orthodox medical establishment has finally lost control of serious infectious illness and disease. Indeed, studies show you are now more likely to contract a deadly infection inside of a hospital while surrounded by doctors than outside of one. Yet the orthodox medical community continues to insist they are the only ones capable of taking care of your health and medical problems. And they have the entrenched bureaucracies of the FDA and AMA at their beck and call to enforce their will upon you.

But the fact that more than 90,000 Americans each year are now being infected by the deadly MRSA superpathogen -- and that there is that there is a safe, natural way to put an end to this deadly epidemic and the medical bureaucrats won’t even tell you about it -- should be a clarion call to any thinking individual. It is clearly time to start taking matters into your own hands, for your own protection.

You can start by visiting some of the web sites above, and educating yourself. Learn how to protect yourself and your family. Learn how to start “Taking back your power!”

Reduce Your Risk of Cancer

With Sunlight Exposure


Posted By Dr. Mercola |
Please go to Dr. Mercola site for the full article:

http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2004/03/31/cancer-sunlight.aspx

By William B. Grant, Ph.D.
SUNARC

With all of the publicity that UV radiation (UVR) is an important cause of skin cancer, premature skin aging and cataract formation, one might think that avoidance of UVR would be the best policy. Not so fast. If protection against UVR were the most important thing, all humans would have very dark skin, since the melanin in dark skin protects against skin cancer and premature skin aging.

Skin pigmentation becomes paler the closer one’s ancestors lived to the polar-regions, evidently to balance cutaneous production of vitamin D with protection against free radicals and DNA damage from UVR [Jablonski and Chaplin, 2000]. In addition, even a cursory look at the geographic variation in cancer mortality rates in the United States [Devesa et al., 1999] indicates that some environmental factor has to explain why mortality rates for a number of internal cancers are approximately twice as high in northeastern, highly-urbanized states than in southwestern, more rural states.

Diet and smoking are, of course, important risk factors for many types of cancer [Doll and Peto, 1981]. But in order for diet to explain the geographic variation in cancer rates, Americans would need to be eating drastically different diets by region. However, anyone who has travelled throughout the United States knows that the food choices do not vary much anywhere in the contiguous 48 states.

The Risk of Cancer Lessens With More Sun Exposure

The key to understanding this geographic pattern was provided by Cedric and Frank Garland in 1980 [Garland and Garland, 1980]. They reasoned that sunlight, through the production of vitamin D, reduced the risk of colon cancer in the sunny areas compared to that in the darker areas. They performed an ecologic study of annual solar irradiance versus colon cancer mortality rates and found a strong inverse correlation, i.e. the more sunlight, the less cancer. (An ecologic study treats entire populations defined geographically as entities, with values for disease outcome and environmental or dietary factors averaged for each entity.)

Their paper received little notice at first, perhaps because UVR was commonly associated with skin cancer, perhaps because the ecologic approach was falling out of favor [Doll and Peto, 1981]. Undaunted, they extended their work through the use of stored serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D)--the common form of circulating vitamin D--values for another purpose along with a determination of colorectal cancer incidence among the serum donors, finding a significant inverse correlation between 25(OH)D and colorectal cancer rates [Garland et al., 1985]. The list of cancers for which ultraviolet B (UVB) (290-315 nm) and vitamin D is protective was extended through a variety of observational epidemiologic studies by the end of the 1990s to include breast, ovarian and prostate cancer and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma [Grant, 2002b].

How Vitamin D Reduces the Risk of Cancer

The mechanisms by which vitamin D reduces the risk of cancer are fairly well understood. They include enhancing calcium absorption (in the case of colorectal cancer) [Lamprecht and Lipkin, 2003], inducing cell differentiation, increasing cancer cell apoptosis or death, reducing metastasis and proliferation, and reducing angiogenesis [van den Bemd and Chang, 2002]. In addition, 25(OH)D downregulates parathyroid hormone (PTH) [Chapuy et al., 1987]. Since IGF-I stimulates tumor growth and high quantities are a consequence of the standard American diet [Grant, 2002a; 2004], vitamin D can be considered one partial antidote to the American diet.

When I decided to investigate the role of UVB and vitamin D in reducing the risk of cancer, after I convinced myself that dietary factors could not explain the geographic variation of cancer mortality rates in the United States, I posed two questions to address:

For how many cancers is UVB/vitamin D protective?
How many Americans die prematurely each year due to inadequate levels of vitamin D?
I started with the maps of cancer mortality rates in the Atlas of Cancer Mortality [Devesa et al., 1999] and found the UVB irradiance/dose map for the United States for July 1992 made using data obtained by NASA’s Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS) to use as a proxy for vitamin D production. In this study, I determined that UVB was inversely correlated with mortality rates for 12 types of cancer, including five types of cancer already identified plus an additional seven, and estimated that 17, 000 to 23,000 Americans died prematurely each year due to insufficient vitamin D [Grant, 2002b].

While the study was generally accepted, critics pointed out that I had ignored a number of factors that affect the risk of cancer and which could, perhaps, explain much of the variation in mortality rates. To respond to these critics, I extended the analysis by including a number of cancer risk factors for which I could find state-averaged values.

These factors included lung cancer mortality rates (an index for the adverse health effects of smoking), fraction of the population considered of Hispanic heritage (Hispanics are counted as white Americans in the Atlas), alcohol consumption rates, degree of urbanization, and fraction of the population living below the poverty level.

Understand that the human H2O molecule is surrounded by ten 
electrons that orbit in a 180-degree, half-circle to the South 
while making their 360-degree sweep. All fluids that you 
consume each day are first "forced through metal piping", 
which causes the electrons to spin (orbit)to the North like 
the insects, bats and cats molecular rotation.

To drink this incorrectly-influenced fluid, on the molecular
level, means that you are not-knowingly "NEGATING" your own 
"7-year cellular-rebuild cycle", thus causing your early demise! 
You will die earlier than you think. To molecularly south-spin 
all beverages, for just thirteen seconds before drinking, means 
that you are now giving your system exactly what it needs to do 
this cellular replacement correctly over time. In a while, you 
will begin to eat less, sleep less, and look much younger. 
You will also now have the ability to remain in physical form

    Desensitized estrogen receptors in the breast.

    2. Reduced estrogen production in overactive ovaries.

    3Reduced fibrocystic breast disease which often precedes
    breast cancer.

    4. Caused cancer cell death, slowed down cell division and
    reduced blood vessel growth to tumors.

    5Caused more cell death than the chemo drug, Fluorouracil .

    6Prevented rats from getting cancer when they were fed the breast 
    cancer causing toxin DMBA.


    Research suggests that some breast cancers may be an 
    iodine deficiency disease.

    As iodine consumption has gone down, breast cancer rates have gone up. But 
    the research goes far deeper, exploring the effects of iodine supplementation on 
    breast disease and breast cancer. This important breakthrough has been in the 
    research pipeline for years but only recently found momentum.  After sifting 
    through 50 years of iodine research and corresponding with researchers around 
    the world, the editors report that abnormal iodine metabolism, due either to 
    bromide dominance in the environment or a dietary deficiency of iodine, must be 
    addressed as part of a preventive and or a therapeutic strategy.  

                                    Iodine Deficiency Growing Worse

  • Iodine consumption by Americans has dropped 50% since the 1970s as breast 
    cancer rates have risen (1) In the US Goiter Belt,  where iodine in the soil is
    lower, breast  cancer is higher (2).

  • By contrast, the incidence and severity of breast cancer are less in Japan than
    in Europe and the US, attributable to the diet (3).  Japanese women consume 25 
    times more dietary iodine than North American women and have lower breast 
    cancer rates (4).

  • Meanwhile, since the 1970s, in the US and several other countries, iodine-
    blocking bromides have been added to flour,  some sodas, and medications, 
    exacerbating the iodine deficiency.

  • Fluoridated drinking water also depletes iodine absorption. Thus, as women
    consume less iodine and excrete more due to toxic elements, our risk for breast 
    cancer grows(5).

                        Iodine and Benign Breast Disease

  • Blocking iodine in rats' food supply led to progressive human-like fibrocystic
    disease (atypia, sclerosing, calcifications, dysplastic changes) as the rats aged 
    (6). Supplementing patients with fibrocystic disease with iodine helped to resolve 
    fibrosis and reduced breast size (7).

  • For women with painful breasts accompanying fibrocystic disease, iodine  
    improved symptoms in more than 50% of the women who took 6.0 mg. of iodine for 
    6 months (8), and brown sea alga improved pain and nodularity in 94% of the 
    women (9).  From the editors' observations of the Iodine Investigation Project 
    participants, depending on the kind of iodine agent used, painful breast 
    symptoms have resolved in from 24 hours to two months.

  • Since benign breast disease increases the risk of breast cancer (10), and iodine 
    improves fibrocystic disease, we at Breast Cancer Choices propose studies to 
    see if iodine supplementation decreases the risk of getting breast cancer and 
    the risk orecurrence.

                                           Iodine and Breast Cancer         

  • For breast patients, iodine's therapeutic mechanisms of action may be at least
    three-pronged:  Hormonal (11),  Biochemical (12-18), Genetic (19).

    That is, iodine desensitizes the estrogen receptors, alters the chemical pathways 
    as well effects on the genes, resulting in less cell growthand causing anti-tumor 
    effect by causing apoptosis (programmed cell death) of malignant cells.

  • Iodine-rich seaweed exhibits an anti-cancer effect in rats and in the lab on human 
    breast cancer cells.

    Adding seaweed to rats' food delays the onset and number of rat mammary 
    tumors (20,21). And in the lab, mekabu seaweed plant induced cell death in three 
    kinds of human breast cancer cells. Mekabu had a stronger effect on the cells 
    than the chemo drug, 5-fluorouracil (22).

  • Adding  iodine to chemically-induced (DMBA) rat breast tumors stops the
    growth of the tumors.  Adding iodine plus medroxyprogesterone gave the 
    highestlevel of response: the growth-suppressed tumors showed 100% times the 
    iodine content than the full blown (nonsuppressed) tumorsThe researchers 
    suggest that the uptake of iodine was enhanced by medroxyprogesterone. (23).  
    As David Brownstein, MD, phrased it, "You cannot give breast cancer to rats that 
    have sufficient iodine."

  • In small, preliminary patient studies, using the screening iodine-loading test, 
    breast cancer patients excreted less urinary iodine than healthy people, implying 
    iodine-deficiency (24,25).

              What to do about iodine deficiency?

  • The editors at Breast Cancer Choices recommend patients read as much as they
    can from the Iodine Related Links on the top left side of this page.

  • Secondly,  we recommend taking the Iodine Loading Test  which will provide a 
    guideline to your current iodine sufficiency status. Then join the Iodine 
    Investigation Project and participate in our confidential database so we can 
    follow your progress. Next, consider finding an iodine-literate practioner (ILP 
    from our directory or one willing to consider this non-toxic therapy.

  • Iodine ProtocolDepending upon the results of your screening iodine-loading 
    test,  most doctors we are familiar with currently recommend 50 mg or more of 
    iodine daily in the form of Iodoral tablets (a combined iodine-iodide formula), but 
    others recommend an iodine-only formulation or Lugol's iodine solution.

  • Where to Get Iodoral:  Iodoral tablets may be available from your health 
    practitioner. The Breast Cancer Choices charity fund-raises for the Iodine 
    investigation Project through sales of Iodoral. If we have provided information to 
    you, please consider buying from a charity rather than a for-profit company.

  • Iodine Companion Nutrients. Many Iodine Literate Doctors suggest selenium(26),  
    vitamin C (27), and magnesium(28) enhance the therapeutic value of iodine. 
    Niacin was also recommended at the February 07 Iodine Conference. Thyroid 
    function should be closely monitored and may require an adjustment of thyroid 
    medications.

  • For those experiencing uncommon detox side effects such as constipation, acne 
    or rash,the Yahoo Iodine Group has used 1/2 teaspoon Celtic salt dissolved in a 
    large glass of water, taken twice a day. Drinking additional water and taking extra 
    vitamin C may help even more.  

                                  What to Expect

    The Breast Cancer Choices Iodine Investigation Project is currently following 
    patients taking iodine to prevent recurrence. Most patients report no side 
    effects.  Some report a range of non-breast improvements such as change in 
    thyroid status, need for less thyroid medication, weight loss, ovarian cysts 
    resolving, fibroids shrinking, improved energy, mood and mental clarity.

    But be aware  some iodine takers report what we believe to be iodine detoxing 
    bromide into the bloodstream causing symptoms of bromism.

    According to a Department of Defense commissioned report, , bromism symptoms 
    can manifest as lethargy, depression, "dark" thoughts, "brain fog," constipation, 
    leg and hip pain, acne, rashes and other symptoms. These side effects are 
    usually reversible in 24-48 hours by discontinuing the iodine and allowing a short 
    period of washout before restarting at a lower dose. Again, as stated above, 
    Celtic salt in water has relieved detox symptoms quickly by speeding up bromide 
    detox through the kidneys. See Iodine Protocol.

    CAUTION:  DO NOT TAKE IODINE IF YOU ARE ALLERGIC TO IODIZED SALT

  Since bromide excretion seems to be higher in breast cancer patients than
    undiagnosed persons (29), it is important that each patient develop a strategy 
with her physician to clear the bromide. Ways of eliminating bromide detox 
symptoms by taking 1/2 teaspoon of Celtic salt in water are currently being used

IS THIS REALLY A CURE FOR CANCER?

Even Cancer Doctors are Amazed at How Well This Simple Cancer Cure Works – Even on the Most Advanced Cancers!
http://evolutionezine.com/cancer-cure/

The following special report featuring the revolutionary “recipe” that has been scientifically proven to cure breast cancer — and all other types of cancer — is an excerpt from the popular, doctor-recommendedEncyclopedia of Medical Breakthroughs and Forbidden Treatments.

Dr. Johanna Budwig’s Flax Oil & Sulphur-Based Protein Therapy


erman-born biochemist Johanna Budwig (1908-2003) was acknowledged as perhaps the world’s leading expert on lipid biochemistry — the field of study dealing with fats (lipids that are solid at room temperature) and oils (lipids that are liquid at room temperature), and their activity within biological systems.

She held a Ph.D. in Natural Science, with emphasis in chemistry and physics, and was also formally trained as a physician, botanist, and biologist.  On seven different occasions she was nominated by her peers to receive a Nobel Prize.

Dr. Budwig was familiar with the work of 1931 Nobel laureate Otto Warburg who demonstrated that, unlike normal cells which receive their energy from oxygen gas, the energy that maintains cancer cells is derived principally from the fermentation of glucose.  In Warburg’s words:


“Cancer, above all other diseases, has countless secondary causes. But, even for cancer, there is only one prime cause.
Summarized in a few words, the prime cause of cancer is the replacement of the respiration of oxygen in normal body cells by a fermentation of sugar [glucose] … all cancer cells without exception must ferment, and no normal growing cell ought to exist that ferments in the body.” 78

Warburg’s work never fully postulated the cause(s) of this reversion of cancer cells to the more primitive anaerobic state.  He did, however, theorize that he could raise the oxygen levels in anaerobic cells through the consumption of saturated fats.  Pursuing this reasoning, he unsuccessfully attempted to increase oxygen transfer into cancer cells using the saturated fat butyric acid (which Budwig later determined was not sufficiently energetic to effect oxygen transport).

Building on Warburg’s work, 1937 Nobel laureate Albert Szent-Györgyi demonstrated that essential fatty acids (EFAs), combined with sulphur-rich proteins, are able to increase cellular oxygenation.

Budwig understood that cancer cells revert to the more primitive fermentation of glucose because they are deprived of oxygen to the extent they must find another source of energy in order to survive.  One of her greatest contributions is the discovery of the reason this oxygen deprivation and subsequent reversion occurs. Simply stated, the anaerobic environment that spawns the proliferation of cancer is caused by the lack of sufficient omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids in the diet, as well as the overconsumption of modern foods containing unhealthy forms of fats and oils, according to Budwig.

Essential fatty acids are so labeled because they are essential for life and cannot be manufactured by the body. Consequently, they must be supplied through the diet.  If these health-providing fatty acids aren’t consumed in sufficient amounts, physical processes within the cells degrade to the more primitive form of energy production –fermentation of glucose within a poorly oxygenated environment.  Also, and equally important, is the fact that the modern-day overconsumptionof unhealthy forms of fats and oils so prevalent in today’s processed foods, competes with the uptake and use of healthy EFAs, further limiting their availability.

Although this is a simplified explanation of the physical/chemical processes involved, a more detailed explanation can be found in the references listed below.


Based on her own extensive research over many decades, as well as probable knowledge of Szent-Györgyi’s findings regarding the use of essential fatty acids combined with sulphur-rich proteins to raise cellular energy levels, Dr. Budwig pioneered a protocol for cancer prevention and treatment based on the use of small amounts of flaxseed (linseed) oil combined with a rich supply of sulphur-based proteins.  She recommended the products Quark® (a German cottage cheeselike dairy product), and more commonly cottage cheese, as the best sources of sulphur-based protein.

Flax oil is one of the richest sources of the EFAs omega-3s and -6s, and cottage cheese is perhaps the most convenient, richest source of sulphur-based protein.


Budwig found that neither ingredient alone is effective in either the prevention or treatment of disease.  The flax oil must be “activated” by thoroughly mixing it with the cottage cheese in an electric blender at a ratio ranging from 1 tablespoon flaxseed oil per ¼ cup of (preferably organic) lowfat cottage cheese, to 3-4 tablespoons flax oil per ½ cup cottage cheese, depending on the severity of illness — taken on a daily basis.  Other ingredients such as fruit and honey may be added to taste.

For those who are lactose intolerant or simply want to avoid animal-derived foods, alternatives to cottage cheese can be found in the references below.  One possibility is the product Companion Nutrients® by Nature’s Distributors (800-624-7114), an Arizona-based company that claims one capsule of the dried, sulphurated protein in Companion Nutrients can activate the EFAs in one tablespoon of flaxseed oil.

Because the precise treatment of cancer is so critical, Companion Nutrients might best be used in addition to but not as a substitute for cottage cheese.

As amazing as it may sound to some — especially to oncologists who practice traditional forms of cancer therapy, not to mention the unsuspecting and naive public who have observed for decades the many twists and turns of the War On Cancer — the use of these two inexpensive (and unpatentable) food substances provides a powerful and effective means of treating even the most advanced cancers.

According to Dr. Budwig, “… 99% of the sick that come to see me … are cancer patients who have had operations and radiation sessions, and were diagnosed as being far too advanced for another operation to be of any help.  Even in these cases health can be restored, usually within a few months, I would say in 90% of cases.”

Writing in the Townsend Letter for Doctors and Patients in 1990, cancer researcher and physician Dan C. Roehm, M.D., F.A.C.P., states that, “What she [Dr. Budwig] has demonstrated to my initial disbelief but lately, to my complete satisfaction in my practice, is: CANCER IS EASILY CURABLE; the treatment is dietary/lifestyle, the response is immediate: the cancer cell is weak and vulnerable; the precise biochemical breakdown point was identified by her in 1951 and is specifically correctable …”

According to Robert E. Willner, M.D., Ph.D., writing in his book The Cancer Solution, “Numerous independent clinical studies published in major medical journals worldwide confirm Dr. Budwig’s findings … Over 40 years ago Dr. Budwig presented clear and convincing evidence, which has been confirmed by hundreds of other related scientific research papers since, that the essential fatty acids are at the core of the answer to the cancer problem.” You will come to your own conclusions as to why this simple, effective prevention and therapy has not only been ignored — it has been suppressed!

Dr. Budwig recommended the Flaxseed Oil & Cottage Cheese treatment protocol be followed precisely, according to her explicit directions.  The caveat to this is that many people have successfully used only the flax oil and cottage cheese, without adhering to the other detailed food recommendations her works suggest.

The Illegal Herb that Fights Cancer

Posted By Dr. Mercola | May 07 2011 | 169,371 views

Medical marijuana is now a $1.7-billion market in the U.S. This means that sales of medical marijuana rival the annual revenue generated by Viagra, a $1.9-billion business.

What's more, the medical marijuana market is expected to nearly double in the next five years, and that's just in the 15 U.S. states where the drug is legal. If another 20 states pass medical marijuana laws, which projections show is possible, the market could grow to $8.9 billion by 2016.

According to MSNBC:

"The cannabis industry as a whole -- including the underground black market and medical gray market -- generates anywhere from $18 billion to $35.8 billion a year."

In the video above, "Run From the Cure – the Rick Simpson Story," it's suggested that pharmaceutical companies and big business may be withholding a potential cancer cure -- hemp oil -- from the public in the interest of personal profit.

"...perfectly balanced 1:3 ratio of naturally-occurring omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids...unlike other seeds and nutritional oils, such as flax and fish fish oil, hemp seeds also contain super omega-3 stearidonic acid and super omega-6-gamma-linolenic acid in nutritionally relevant amounts that help to reduce inflammation and improve mental functioning, as well as make up for potentially impaired fatty acid metabolism."

They also noted that the reason why industrial hemp cannot be grown in the United States is because the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) refuses to acknowledge that hemp is not the same as marijuana. As TreeHugger reported:

"The United States is the only industrialized nation where growing industrial hemp is illegal. And because of that we're missing out on huge economic opportunity...

Apparently even though Canadian cops can tell the difference between high-THC cannabis plants (marijuana) and low-THC plants (industrial hemp), the US DEA can't be bothered."

Cannabis, or as it's more commonly known marijuana, has been used for its medicinal properties for thousands of years. It's been heralded as a "cure-all," revered for its healing properties that not only help relieve pain but also have been highlighted as a potential cancer cure.

Hemp Vs. Marijuana: What's the Difference?

Before I delve into the intriguing controversy surrounding medical marijuana, it's important to note that the plants referred to as hemp and marijuana are not the same. Both are members of the Cannabis sativa plant species, but they are two distinct varieties.

Marijuana typically is high in THC (delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol) -- the compound responsible for the plant's notorious psychoactive effect -- and low in CBD (cannabidiol) content. Both THC and CBD are known as cannabinoids, which interact with your body in a unique way I'll describe later.

What's interesting, however, is that CBD has been shown to block the effect of THC in the nervous system. So, marijuana plants are typically high in THC and low in CBD, which maximizes their psychoactive effects.

Hemp, on the other hand, is typically high in CBD and low in THC, as it is bred to maximize its fiber, seeds and oil, the items for which it is most commonly used. For more information on the difference between hemp and marijuana, here is a comprehensive article on the topic from the North American Industrial Hemp Council (NAIHC).

Why is it "Illegal" to Grow Hemp in the United States?

Ironically, despite their differences, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) classifies all C. sativa varieties as "marijuana," according to NAIHC.

This is why the United States is the only industrialized nation where growing industrial hemp is illegal. Well, technically it is not illegal, but growing it requires a permit from the DEA – and it is reportedly almost impossible to get one.

This is a shame for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Hemp is healthy: Hemp seeds pack a powerful nutritional punch. Two tablespoons of shelled hemp seeds contain about 11 grams of protein and 2 grams of unsaturated omega-3 fatty acids. And, as TreeHugger reported, hemp seeds have a " "perfectly balanced 1:3 ratio of naturally-occurring omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids...unlike other seeds and nutritional oils, such as flax..."

  • Hemp is good for the economy: The total retail value of North American hemp products was valued at around $400 million in 2009, but U.S. farmers are unable to benefit from this since hemp products are imported.

Perhaps soon hemp will become a U.S. product, however, as Ron Paul has once again submitted an official Congressional Record statement calling for the legalization of industrial hemp. You can find out more about the issues surrounding the legalization of hemp at
Vote Hemp, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the acceptance of and free market for industrial hemp.

No matter what you call it, cannabis and its range of varieties, including marijuana, is said to be among the safest medicinal substances known, and there are nearly 25 million Americans who have health conditions that medical marijuana could reportedly treat (and this figure only includes those living in states where its use is currently legal), according to The State of the Medical Marijuana Markets 2011-- yet fewer than 800,000 are taking part.

If marijuana is, in fact, capable of helping heal millions with very few, to no, side effects, why is this not being shouted from the rooftops?

Political Agendas and Red Tape Make Medical Marijuana a Nightmare

Marijuana was a popular botanical medicine in the 19th and 20th centuries, common in U.S. pharmacies of the time. Yet, in 1970, the herb was declared a Schedule 1 controlled substance, labeling it a drug with a "high potential for abuse" and "no accepted medical use."

Three years later the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) was formed to enforce the newly created drug schedules, and the fight against marijuana use began.

The battle that has raged since is a long one, and you can read a brief history of marijuana prohibition in the Huffington Post -- but suffice to say that movements to legalize marijuana have persisted ever since. The most successful to date, and the one that is set to produce the first legal marijuana market in decades, is the medical marijuana movement.

As the State of the Medical Marijuana Markets' executive summary states:

"Since 1996, marijuana proponents have pushed for individual states to recognize marijuana as a treatment for a range of illnesses. New medical research and changing public opinion have propelled these efforts.

Over the past 15 years, led by California, 15 states plus the District of Columbia have adopted laws permitting some form of marijuana consumption or distribution for medical use. These laws have been adopted by public referendums as well as legislation."

Despite its legal status, it was common for the DEA to raid medical marijuana suppliers and even arrest patients, up until 2009 when the U.S. Justice Department essentially told federal prosecutors to lay off Americans producing and using medical marijuana in accordance with state laws.

Now in 2011, the report notes that a national market for medical marijuana is worth $1.7 billion -- and could grow to nearly $9 billion in the next five years. Investors are sitting on the sidelines, just waiting for the regulatory smoke to clear.

Many patients, too, are eager to get their hands on what some are calling the "cancer answer."

Are You Being Kept in the Dark About a Potential Cancer Cure?

If you ask Canadian Rick Simpson, absolutely.

Simpson is the man in the video above who was openly growing hemp in his backyard and using it to produce hemp oil, which he gave, for free, to his friends and family. The oil, Simpson and many others claim, has a remarkable healing effect on countless diseases and conditions, including cancer.

After numerous raids by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Simpson was forced to seek asylum in another country, but his Web site,Phoenix Tears, still stands. There you can find instructions on how to produce hemp oil, as well as testimonials from people who say the oil has helped them. Mail Online also featured a story of 2-year-old Cash Hyde who was diagnosed with a serious brain tumor. His father secretly administered cannabis oil through his son's feeding tube while he was in the hospital in failing health and the boy experienced a complete turnaround. He has now been declared cancer free.

As Simpson states:

"I have been providing people with instructions on how to make Hemp Oil medicines for about 8 years. The results have been nothing short of amazing. Throughout man's history hemp has always been known as the most medicinal plant in the world. Even with this knowledge hemp has always been used as a political and religious football.

The current restrictions against hemp were put in place and maintained, not because hemp is evil or harmful, but for big money to make more big money, while we suffer and die needlessly.

Look at a proposal such as this; if we were allowed to grow hemp in our back yards and cure our own illnesses, what do you think the reaction of the pharmaceutical industry would be to such a plan?

Many large pharmaceutical companies that still exist today sold hemp based medicines in the 1800's and early 1900's. They knew then what I have recently found out. Hemp oil if produced properly is a cure-all that the pharmaceutical industry can't patent."

National Cancer Institute Changes Web Site about Cannabis' "Anti-Tumor Effect"

In March 2011, the National Cancer Institute (NCI) updated its Web site to include some of the benefits of medical marijuana, reportedly noting:

"The potential benefits of medicinal Cannabis for people living with cancer include antiemetic effects, appetite stimulation, pain relief, and improved sleep. In the practice of integrative oncology, the health care provider may recommend medicinal Cannabis not only for symptom management but also for its possible direct antitumor effect."

Being the first federal agency to publicly claim that marijuana may in fact be beneficial -- and possess anti-tumor properties -- it generated significant buzz on the Web. But soon after, NCI quickly changed its tune, editing the anti-tumor reference entirely out of its statement, which now reads:

"The potential benefits of medicinal Cannabis for people living with cancer include antiemetic effects, appetite stimulation, pain relief, and improved sleep. Though no relevant surveys of practice patterns exist, it appears that physicians caring for cancer patients who prescribe medicinal Cannabis predominantly do so for symptom management."

NCI then tried to account for its changes by posting this explanation on March 30:

"In light of the attention garnered by the PDQ summary statement on Cannabis and cannabinoids, reviewers for the summary on the PDQ Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) Editorial Board reexamined the recently posted statement and decided to change the wording, in order to clarify the meaning that the Board originally intended to convey and to correct several possible misinterpretations."

It's a suspicious swap of wording, to say the least, but even more perplexing is why, if anti-tumor effects have been discovered from cannabis -- and they have -- why is this substance not the subject of major research studies?

Why are Medical Marijuana and Hemp Oil NOT Being Studied?

Even a quick review of the data suggests that cannabis deserves more than a passing glance as a potential treatment for various diseases. But in the United States, these studies are not being done.

According to a report by Americans for Safe Access:

"In the past three decades, there has been an explosion of international studies designed to investigate the therapeutic value of cannabis (marijuana).

However, drastic restrictions on research in the U.S. have meant that few clinical trials are being conducted domestically and none are being conducted as part of a sponsor-funded drug development plan aimed at obtaining Food & Drug Administration (FDA) approval for the prescription use of the botanical plant itself.

Meanwhile, research teams in Great Britain, Spain, Italy, Israel, and elsewhere have confirmed - through case studies, basic research, pre-clinical, and preliminary clinical investigations - the medical value of cannabis ... "

It is easy to see why drug companies would want no part in funding research studies on a plant that can't be patented. If they were to discover that it could cure cancer, patients would be able to grow it themselves right in their own backyard ... this is not something the pharmaceutical companies would want you to know about.

Simpson, who keep in mind has been giving away hemp oil for free, is so convinced of its usefulness that he states on his Web site:

"When the hemp plant is grown for medicinal use, you now have your own medical system that is much safer and effective than anything our current medical system provides. You still may require a doctor to set your broken leg, but you will no longer need the chemicals they have been pushing upon us. Hemp is medicine for the masses and no one has the right to control its use."

Of course, in the United States its use is controlled and even those who have a legitimate medical need can have a hard time getting a steady supply. This may change if more research continues to bear out marijuana's healing properties, but for now even the ability to research the substance is tightly controlled. As the Safe Access report states:

" ... the federal monopoly on the supply of cannabis has fundamentally limited FDA-approved clinical research to investigate its safety and efficacy in controlling symptoms of serious and chronic illnesses.

In the United States, research is stalled, and in some cases blocked, by a complicated federal approval process, restricted access to research-grade cannabis, and the refusal of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to license private production of cannabis for use exclusively in federally approved research."

This certainly does make the fervent war to keep marijuana out of the hands of Americans take on new meaning ...

How Cannabis Works: Cannabinoids and the Cannabinoid Receptor System

There are more than 60 chemical compounds known as cannabinoids in the marijuana plant. A report by Dr. Manuel Guzman suggests that these active components of cannabis and their derivatives are potential anti-cancer agents. He wrote in the journal Nature Reviews:

" ... these compounds [cannabinoids] have been shown to inhibit the growth of tumour cells in culture and animal models by modulating key cell-signaling pathways. Cannabinoids are usually well tolerated, and do not produce the generalized toxic effects of conventional chemotherapies."

Cannabinoids interact with your body by way of naturally occurring cannabinoid receptors embedded in cell membranes throughout your body. There are cannabinoid receptors in your brain, lungs, liver, kidneys, immune system and more; the therapeutic (and psychoactive) properties of marijuana occur when a cannabinoid (such as the THC produced by the cannabis plant) activates a cannabinoid receptor.

Your body also has naturally occurring endocannabinoids similar to THC that stimulate your cannabinoid receptors and produce a variety of important physiologic processes.

So your body is actually hard-wired to respond to cannabinoids through this unique cannabinoid receptor system; research is ongoing on just how far its impact on your health reaches, but to date it's known that cannabinoid receptors play an important role in many body processes, including metabolic regulation, cravings, pain, anxiety, bone growth, and immune function.

report by the American College of Physicians (ACP) further notes that:

"Marijuana has been smoked for its medicinal properties for centuries. It was in the U.S. Pharmacopoeia until 1942 when it was removed because federal legislation made the drug illegal ... Still, the overwhelming number of anecdotal reports on the therapeutic properties of marijuana sparks interest from scientists, health care providers, and patients.

Over the past 20 years, researchers have discovered cannabinoid receptors: CB1, which mediates the central nervous system (CNS), and CB2, which occurs outside the CNS and is believed to have anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive activity.

These scientific developments have revealed much information supporting expansion of research into the potential therapeutic properties of marijuana and its cannabinoids."

ACP states that research to date suggests these substances may be useful for:

What Does the Research Say About Medical Marijuana?

The studies that have been conducted so far show some promise for the use of cannabis in the treatment of a wide range of health conditions, including potentially cancer. For instance, in 2009 a study in the journal Cancer Prevention Research found that marijuana smokers have a lower risk of head and neck cancers than non-marijuana smokers.

Harvard researchers also found that THC in marijuana cuts tumor growth in lung cancer while significantly reducing its ability to spread.

There is also a wealth of research linking marijuana with pain relief and improved sleep. In one recent study, just three puffs of marijuana a day for five days helped those with chronic nerve pain to relieve pain and sleep better.

Americans for Safe Access also has links to research studies suggesting that cannabis may help in the treatment or prevention of Alzheimer's disease and cancer, while the International Association for Cannabis as Medicine highlights the following medical uses:

NauseaVomitingAnorexiaCachexia (Wasting Syndrome)
SpasticityMovement DisordersPainGlaucoma
EpilepsyAsthmaDependency and WithdrawalPsychiatric Symptoms
Autoimmune DiseasesInflammationHigh Blood PressureChronic Fatigue Syndrome

For more on the latest research, you can also see this database of clinical studies and case reports, which is maintained by the International Association for Cannabis. And, for those who are interested, here is an even more extensive list of marijuana clinical studies, categorized by disease/ailment.

Marijuana is NOT Harmless ...

There are certainly some downsides to marijuana use that need to be addressed, particularly if you are thinking of smoking it for recreational purposes.

Marijuana use can be addicting, and no doubt families have been broken up and jobs lost over its use. In the short-term, marijuana use can cause trouble with your ability to think clearly and may impair short-term memory. Marijuana also leads to motor skill impairment and affects alertness, coordination and reaction time, which is why it should never be used prior to driving.

There is also some evidence that marijuana use can exacerbate psychotic symptoms in those with schizophrenia or other psychotic disorders.

It's also been suggested that marijuana use can serve as a "gateway" drug that eventually leads to the use of "harder" drugs like cocaine and heroine, although this has been debated. Marijuana use among children and teens can also have dire consequences, as drug use of any kind may encourage risky choices and irresponsible behaviors.

Practical Considerations on Using Marijuana

While the vast majority of marijuana use is through burning and inhalation, it is worth noting that anytime you heat materials and inhale them you run the risk of introducing toxic elements into your system. This is very similar to using tobacco. Like tobacco it is best to only use organic versions. Any pesticides that are on the material that is burned and inhaled will dramatically increase its toxicity.

Smoking marijuana will also produce carbon monoxide and tar as byproducts of combustion. Additionally, smoking marijuana from a bong (or waterpipe) has been linked to the spread of tuberculosis.

It is possible to avoid these risks entirely by either securing cannabis in hemp oil form or, as many medical marijuana patients do, using a vaporizer. The device vaporizes marijuana without any of the combustion byproducts, allowing for a clean route of ingestion.

It is certainly ironic that a natural substance like marijuana is illegal while prescription drugs that are prescribed by doctors every day kill over 100,000 Americans a year and get the government's gold seal of approval. But you never could grow a drug like Lipitor, Avandia, or Ritalin in your backyard the way you could marijuana ... and perhaps therein lies the problem.

If one chooses to use marijuana, from a health perspective it would seem the safest way to use it would be to eat it (along with some fat, as THC is fat-soluble and will not dissolve in water). It is important to understand though that for nearly everyone in most countries, primarily for political reasons, using marijuana is an illegal activity that could result in serious legal consequences.
