I have only ever seen the CBC version and it showed the human side of Terry including him being angry over a few different things. Things that I would also have been quite angry over, like being accused of not running all the way across Quebec. The man did something that was bigger than life, he deserves to be seen in the same way .
If I recall – He had one companion who drove an old beat up van – they would stop in some small town and no one knew about him – that was at the beginning. And the story grew - Just try an imagine the personal drive and commitment he had inside of him. The pain he endured, he had to have had more personal drive & commitment in one day of running than many people will have in a lifetime.
I think Terry Fox was about as good a human as it is “humanly” possible to be. There are two ways to view someone as a hero. One is the individual view of a hero, and the second is the societies vision of what constitutes a hero, and by individual merritt, both are correct in my view. As individuals, one might regard someone a bonafide hero if he saved your life, or someone in your family.
There are also people like Terry Fox, who created something bigger than himself, while not trying to create an annual event, all he was doing was drawing attention to a problem. Terry Fox also displayed the attributes of a genuine person. As Terry Fox created the Marathon of hope and he ran until his cancer came back and drove him out of that event and killed him.
Thereafter, Steve Fonyo is viewed as someone who took up Foxes’ run, but perception views him as an opportunist who’s actions did not display those of a role model. Steve Fonyo didn’t have the strong mental approach to life that Terry Fox had, he also tried to mimic what Terry Fox did, but unfortunately his poor character got in the way, he was not the first, and didn’t match up to the ‘first’.
Being the fact Steve Fonyo is a fellow Hungarian has nothing to do with the reasoning. Steve Fonyo on the other hand was both stupid and irresponsible. True he ran across the country, and he was given numerous chances to get around his drinking and his drug problems. He was even awarded the Order of Canada, but he persisted in drinking and driving and he ended up in jail.
Although,Steve Fonyo did finish the cross country run, he never caught the imagination of the people like Terry Fox. I really don’t think Terry Fox intended to be a hero. Thereby, heroism is coined in the reflection of events and also nominees usually get that title when their actions weren’t for self gratification. Steve Fonyo looked very much like someone in need of self gratification and promotion.
The mind is like a parachute it will only work when its open, therefore, when you add anything make sure it won’t counteract other things. Juicing is okay but when you go through chemotherapy. Sometimes the chemo will destroy gut flora making it nearly impossible to juice. Also your body needs rest to heal, thereby, easy exercise is good but strenuous exercise can stress your immune system.
After taking all factors into consideration and deciding the foundation you would like to build around. Many people are aware of Budwig’s Muesli, however, most don’t realize that it includes 40 ounces of green juice per day and sauerkraut which supplies you more probiotics and strains than almost any supplement you will find in any health food store. And Cheaper!!!
Another aspect of Budwig is most never heard of Rebounding in the Sun (vitamin D.)Along with periodic fasting where you literally rebuild a new immune system in days. Making sure that everything works synergistically, stick with it… build around a foundation… don’t dabble or stop. Understand what it is your trying to accomplish. Understand The Body and Disease!!!
Remember don’t overload your body or overwhelm your mind with to many things. If one person does to many things they won’t be relaxed and run the risk of therapy canceling out the effectiveness and benefit of another while having negative gain on recovery. Gerson can be labor intense making you feel tied down to a juicer running to the bathroom.
From being gluten free, sugar free, dairy free, organic with no spices. It controls toxic chemical, juicing for enzymes and detox, supplement intake to exercise it’s restrictive. With the general thinking don’t overload yourself with anything and your body will heal itself. Change the lifestyle that gave you cancer in the first place and you will change your outcome.
Hearing “no spices” when others tell you turmeric helped them cure their cancer adds confusion to the therapy. That said after building a foundation in which to build upon. Wormwood better known as “Artemisinin” which is a strong herb to build on. Generally regarded with parasite killing cleansing properties and is good for stomach issues… it can stimulate the digestive system (muscle testing is suggested before using for healing cancer.)
Another promising treatment being used today is Mistletoe Injections but not in the United States. Better known as Iscador, it’s important to have a NK test (Natural Killer Test of your immune system.) While doing a multi- prong approach using diet, supplements, essential oils & exercise. Some are saying it helps with the side effects of chemotherapy while giving your own immune system a boost. With the only harsh side effect being a bump that turns red where the injection is given that shows the dose is right.
In July 2009, I was diagnosed with breast cancer over the phone. I remember arguing with the pathologist that some horrible mistake must have happened. It wasn’t true because I could not have breast cancer. Unfortunately it was true and my journey was just beginning. A lumpectomy followed and I was given the diagnosis invasive ductal carcinoma and triple negative breast cancer grade 3 with micromets in one lymph node.
Of course the recommended course was chemotherapy and radiation. I refused to have the chemotherapy and was not sure about the radiation treatment. I felt I must research everything thoroughly to make sure my decisions that I made were the right decisions. My heart knew what I was about to embark upon and that was naturopathic medicine. I felt that traditional medicine was not the right path for me at that time.
I called naturopaths and asked what my diet should be and the answer was plant food. I also talked with several naturopaths and found in my state they gave vitamin c infusions which they started immediately every week. Without 3 weeks of my lumpectomy another lump serviced. Another biopsy showed it to have cancer cells at the margin. My surgeon was also upset that I hadn’t done chemo or radiation and wanted me to have a mastectomy.
After flying to Phoenix and having more naturopathic treatment I decided to have the third surgery to see if there was any more cancer. The results showed no cancer. I contacted a naturopathic oncologist in Scottsdale, Arizona and had an integrative protocol while going through radiation. My protocol was powerful and I suffered no side effects and felt strong.
Since that time I have been under the naturopathic oncologist’s care and my blood work up is excellent. My natural killer cells are at a good level and all blood work shows normal ranges. I exercise 5x a week, lift weights, do kettle bell training, eat plant food, reduce my stress by gamma brain wave cd’s and loving my second life. I also suffered zero side effects. I am alive and well and did not lose my left breast.
Natural medicine save my life and today I am a vital, healthy breast cancer survivor. Looking back I think it was the 25,000 to 50,ooo vitamin C infusions that helped my cause. To maintain I do Qi Gong, Reiki meditation and take supplements for the adrenal glands to help with cortisol. One key I feel that helped was visualizing the cancer cells were dying off and that my body was pure with the healing sounds of removing those toxins.
As I sit hear typing this blog post for Sherri, she mentioned the stress load that she always feels. I often wonder how stress plays a part of this dreadful dis-ease. When you’re stressed could it effect vital vitamins and minerals (calcium & potassium) while making magnesium levels low with calcitrol high. Sherri mention, stress use to be an issue that would make her sick to her stomach.
Over n’ over again I hear cancer patients through their own research and natural therapy decisions. It is what it is and this website is about exploring the possibilities and being curator you gain firsthand account. Within my Facebook friends list: I learned another impressive experience from Doris Parreno of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. This is the first blog post I talked openingly about a product, however, this warrants consideration?
Doris having tried everything imaginable, even German Homeopathic Intense Therapies of Caresang (American ginseng), Mistletoe, vitamin c, B17 and chelation. Imparted this piece of advice: learn when it comes to what you put in my body now especially for healing. So choose only the best even if you have to pay little more… it surly beats IV therapy.
Therefore…. this is Doris Parreno’s Experience:
After having some cramping in my stomach, having a little blood come from my nose on a regular basis and feeling pretty tired on a daily basis where I felt like a needed a nap and sometimes the nap lasted a couple of hours, I decided to go to doctor for a routine physical. I did mammogram and in November, 2011 was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, Triple Positive, Estrogen Positive, High Grade 3, DCIS, Invasive, Aggressive Carcinoma.
I was sure there had been a mistake because I was always relatively healthy, never smoked or drank and never thought I would get cancer. After several opinions, it was not a mistake and I was prescribed a very heavy treatment including Lumpectomy, Chemotherapy, Radiation, Herceptin and Tamoxifen for 5 years. I did get the lumpectomy!!! As the rest of the treatment was all so very scary considering it was referred to as “preventive treatment”.
I knew that treatment was going to knock me out, potentially to kill me or cause more problems in my body and immune system. I figured if this is what I need to do then I may just have to do it. Before my scheduled chemo date, I did a lot of research as to various options but was hesitant to try anything else because I figured the hospitals know best. In the process of my research, I also heard Suzanne Somers talk about ‘chemo sensitivity test’.
I thought it all made sense “if ” I have to do chemo I better do that test. So I did the test and the discovered that the chemo I was going to be given had a very high chance of not working. I have seen friends go through ‘chemo’ that did not work; and it could have been recipe for disaster. So, I asked oncologist if I could have the chemo that was going to work based on the chemo sensitivity test.
She told me that they do not customize treatment for patients and what I was offered is what I would have to take. I was petrified at my potential future. The test also offered alternative therapies, that were non toxic, and seemed to work for the circulating tumor cells that I had. I didn’t have choice but to go the alternative route. As soon as I started to follow that route I started to get better.
I did everything it would take to get better. It was not easy and a full time job, I just knew I had to drop everything when death was staring me in the eyes.
One year after my diagnosis, I can say that I am on my way to full healing. This has been a very costly and self-sacrificing journey, but one worth it for the quality of life… I was able to carry on, with no toxic side effects. I heard about the oils and put a couple of drops here and there, clearly I was not using the right dosage, once I bought Terry’s program I began to understand how cancer worked and the right dosage but was reluctant to depend on the “oils,” it just sounded too good to be true.
I started to tell some other girls at the clinic where I was going about the oils and they got on them right away full force (now that I knew the right dosage) needless to say in 5 weeks one of the girls tumor in her ovaries totally disappeared and the other lady her circulating tumor cells went to normal after 2 months on the oils and Terry’s programs. As I started to take the oils more seriously, after 2 months of the sacred frankenscense and the raindrop I was pretty much cancer free and started to save money and make money… thank you!
I can share my 7 Step Program with others:
Get a thermography (at right place – to see where I was at and to monitor progress) (Dr. Zoya Voitenko is great source for this.)
Get circulating tumor cell test and nk test and protols that would best treat those CTC’s and to monitor progress of treatments(seems can detect cancer even before tumor is present)
Get PH Strips to monitor Acidity/alkaline levels in body (at health food store costs approx. $15)
Get extensive blood work done to identify exactly where you are at
Take care of dental issues and have silver fillings removed by IOAMT approved dentist…. I did it at a place but it is important to deal with any bacterial issues in mouth…this looks like a good place…. I will go here for more in depth analysis of dental issues just to make sure this is properly taken care of…. (watch this youtube video below for more information)
I got on Gerson therapy diet, coffee enemas and supplements
German accupunture (optional)
Parasite cleansing and Organ cleansing and detoxing
Start with the Ningxia juice and you can also order the frankenscense at this site too…

For a second time six months later it had to be a huge disappointment. Deciding not again, Paula decided putting her Faith in GOD’s hands and everything will be alright. Living in Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada, with the pollution quality average and the oil tar sands to far to equate. Paula lived a clean “vegan” lifestyle keeping her pH “alkaline” balanced and thinking it can’t happen to me.
However, being a Critical Care Nurse (22 years) and enduring family crisis with a brother and a H1N1 outbreak. With a mother passing away 1 year later after a year and one/half battle that broke her heart and soul. After being ran down from personal lost and finishing her first iron man contest that “stress load” caught her.
Thereby, being diagnosed six weeks after her second and training for a third just 12 weeks later…. as it never happened. Now today looking back: believing this awakening is taking her longer to heal because her thoughts were a bit scattered and unfocused. Today she is developing a mode of self reflection and realization.
The Angels slowed me down to wake me up to “why” “I am” here today. Having Blue days of wanting to let it all go. Cancer has a mind of it’s own. Cancer has days when you get tired of the pills and the emotions that define cancer. You wake up some days being sick and tired of being sick and tired. Some days it’s a lonely days thinking a blues days.
While also being burnt out trying to figure out why me or why anyone. You also get a chance to learn from your own mistakes and that cannabis doesn’t work for me. It was a period of eight months of my life taken away (I could not function and I won’t do it again ~ it’s not for everybody.) For now…. she has turned to plant based nutrition ( juicing eight times/day in a Modified Gerson Diet.)
With coffee enemas daily, tons of supplements, herbal teas, energizer equipment, infrared saunas, rebounding, acupuncture and massage. Also looking back on it today, Paula believes disease is blocked energy. Reiki will move that blocked energy around in your body- it will balance you. She also feels she was not balanced mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
Being one therapy doesn’t fit all… everyone reacts differently to therapy. Paula found a Total Body Modification Chiropractor that does (Mind/ Body in Spirit technique.) If I die it’s not from being idle and not doing everything I can possibly do. It’s believing everything for a reason, everybody for that reason and everybody in your life having a reason.
If I live it’s because the universe conspired to bring it all together. And I will sure be able to relate better to a lot more people on every level. Thereby, one must have unconditional love, not be overly critical and judgmental as life is a reflection of what your feeling. While letting go and never worrying about the outcome for it will paralyze you and that’s the energy blockage that causes dis=ease.
The United States has by far the highest level of spending per capita in the world . With skyrocketing cost tripling in the last decade, nearing $6,100/ person or 15.4 % GDP according to World Health Organization, Scandinavian countries; with their universal health care coverage, even pay less than half that amount.
While China’s life expectancy of 73 years is a big gap and their 4.7 % of the GDP on health care is small compared to the United States. Their own life expectancy averages absorbs rural high infant mortality rates. In cities like Beijing and in Shanghai, life expectancy is around 80 years, while Hong Kong is at 82, followed closely by Chinese ruled Macau at nearly 81 years, according to the United Nations.
In China’s biggest cities: when you stop to look around exercising is more predominant than in the United States. With bicycles interwoven and widespread into their culture, social interaction seems important and the elderly are out and about. Fighting the isolation that comes with old age…. so is getting out and moving providing them with an added health benefit even in a polluted city.
When I first started this concept of a website that is a centralized hub of cancer research back in March 2006 with the help of a Chinaman that I met in a Book store in Kettering, OHIO. We analyzed that deep secret that lies within their lifestyle and we came to a conclusion with cautious nutritional choices and regular exercise that optimizes glutathione levels. Thereby, helping boost immune function while improving detoxification and enhancing your body’s own antioxidant defenses.
Therefore, one of their main differences is how they view their meals. Here in the United States we eat on the run pizza, hamburger and fries with a soda pop. The Chinese balance yin (wet and moist) with yang (dry and crisp.) The Yin foods cool the body down, while Yang foods heat it up. Most protein foods are seen as yang, and with carbohydrates as yin this combination stabilizes blood sugar. Which is key to good energy and also minimizing weight gain.
Also with in a Chinese meal often a soup – based dish, Zhou adding a liquid to a rather dry meal. Quenches thirst which is often confused with hunger ~ while drinking tends to fill you up. Miso soup, for instance or anything fermented – a probiotic releases the nutrients from the food you consume. Therefore always remember yin versus yang?
Green Tea for example is wet and eliminates toxins, improves digestion and allays hunger. Green tea is an important anti oxidant, traditionally when the Chinese want another cup of tea. They will keep the leaves and add water to the pot. That’s like using one tea bag per day which means less caffeine this is how they manage the yin and yang.
Chinese Medicine prescribes various foods as medical treatment: chili promotes digestion and dispels cold, garlic counteracts toxins. While two thousand years ago Hippocrates said, let your food be your medicine the west overlooked this philosophy. The Chinese believe nutrition ensures all organs are working correctly to allow energy flow, chi to circulate within and smoothly around your body.
The Chinese view vitamin A, B vitamins and vitamin C, beta-carotene, selenium crucial to glutathione levels. With chromium-magnesium and Omega 3s along with medicinal mushroom, seaweed and turmeric crucial with calcium important. While also supplementing with Alpha Lipoic Acid, Red Clover, Burdock and Milk Thistle necessary…. et cetera? Being we have a group page on Facebook NOW. Starting in July…. I hope to have cancer survivors writing these blog post!!!
Update June 27, 2014: Upon finishing this blog post I found Charlotte of Taiwanese Descent for our Facebook Group. Her experience with inflammatory triple negative stage 3B breast cancer was successful through Traditional Chinese Medicine. Because it was inflammatory it was inoperable. While conventional doctors in both Taiwan & United States where convinced it metastasized. Charlotte was given a small chance to survive passed one year. While thinking she knew the body natural secret defense mechanisms
While talking to a Facebook friend last night whom told me an experience he had with his wife and the Budwig Protocol. His wife was like me when I first heard cottage cheese ….well that’s dairy. While his wife had Triple Negative -ER, -PR, -HER2 Breast Cancer, which is a non- hormonal driven aggressive type. She brought herself off Budwig Protocol for fear of dairy when she was responding to the treatment.
In this interview he felt strongly his wife’s life would have been saved “if ” she stuck to the program. What Dr. Johanna Budwig discovered way back then was the emulsification of Quark (cottage cheese in all us) mixed with flax oil produced a sulphurated protein. Which was capable of penetrating the cancer cell wall and reversing the deficiency of the cell thereby, healing cancer naturally.
According to Johanna’s Protocol, patients to ill to consume the mixture at first were treated with a retention enema using 1/2 to 1 cup of oil daily. The patients would try to hold the oil for as long as possible, aiming for 15 – 20 minutes. When the patient retained enough strength to be fed by mouth, they were switched to the mixture.
Johanna also used body rubs of oil into the very ill as she rubbed oil into the skin. Particularly on the armpits, breast and groin area where the lymphatic vessels were and also on the affected organs or areas. This oil was left on the skin about 15 – 20 minutes and then the body was sponged with warm water.
The patient then rested for a short period of time while the warm water drove the last of the oil deeper into the open pores of the body. This then was followed by a soap and water sponge bath to clean up the oil. As the patient also regains the strength needed to eat, they are gradually given the mixture until they can consume about 8 ounces of it daily.
As Johanna’s patients improved they also entered a period of intense therapy lasting about three months. As soon as her patients had achieved fortification with the oil by mouth. They would take in vitamin D rays of the sun for short periods. Once the overt manifestations of the disease had vanished, Johanna prescribe one tablespoon of oil per one hundred pounds of body weight.
Being there are only two essential foods in this protocol flaxseed oil (Barleans) and cottage cheese (Organic Valley) or some other sulphurated protein such as yogurt or kefir. These oils provides electron rich fats that bind and make it water soluble. In this state, the oils are also able to carry immense amounts of oxygen straight into the cells (cancer cells can’t live and thrive in an oxygen rich environment.)
The Budwig wants a patient to also juice 40 ounces a day compared to Gerson therapy of 13/day. Your body spends a lot of energy digesting food and by juicing the body spends more time repairing and healing with the enzymes it’s being fed. As well with some of the ingredients in Granny Smith apples having a high concentration of malic acid (a proven cancer fighter.)
With cancer your in a street fight and only the strongest survive, fight it with everything you know and you will kill the cancer before it kills you. By adding berries to your Budwig Muesli that contains ellagic acid (blueberries and raspberries (cancer fighters) this add to the mega pill theory of rapture. Given often you hear that Budwig Protocol is counter active to vitamin C…. Johanna opposed synthetic vitamin C.
High dose intravenous vitamin C has a pro-oxidant effect as opposed to the antioxidant effects of high doses of oral vitamin C, there is still some residual antioxidant action associated with the intravenous administration of vitamin C that interferes too much with the action of the flax oil within the membranes of cancer cells. With the vitamin C regime coming to act like an antioxidant in addition to a pro-oxidant. Anti – oxidants can nullify the
benefits of the Budwig protocol
While dozens of studies are out about Modified Citrus Pectin (MCP) in powdered form being an adjunctive therapy. With 1 heaping tsp. in a glass of water 5times/day being recommended. Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and Lef.org website, studies show (MCP) induces apoptosis (which is programmed cell death), has an anti-angiogenesis effect ( preventing blood vessel formation to tumor cells that feed the tumor.)
Often over stated is the pH balance which everyone is inclined to think we must keep it above 7.5. Often patients misconstrue Dr.Tullio Simoncini work with sodium bicarbonate injested straight into the tumor as we should drink something dead as baking soda orally as the cure. What taking baking soda really does is shoots through your stomach…. offsetting the HCL and messes up digestion and nutrient absorption.
With 177 words ending with the suffix “itis” meaning inflammation one can see it’s a huge problem in our society. With Crohn’s Disease and Cancer and a host of other diseases being correlated to chronic inflammation it’s a big money maker in our country. Chronic pain such as pancreatitis should always be treated with a synergy effect…. allowing one supplement to take care of another issue in this vicious cycle of events.
First and foremost important in any program is making sure your body is in an alkaline state. With one of the easiest manner in accomplishing this is knowing lemon…. raises the alkalizing effect of water. So even when you drink standard tap water you have alkaline water. Seemingly foods such as lemon, limes and even the tomato are acidic in their basis state, however, when they’re metabolized have an alkalising effect in the cells of the body.
This blog post being a possible supplement program to help those people deal with their pain. With medicine doesn’t seem to help and has doctors baffled. Maca Root grows in the mountains of Peru. Often at high atltitudes of 7,000 to 11,ooo feet. Which makes it the highest growing plant in the world. Peruvian Maca has been generalized a tonic effect in the biochemical functioning of the human body.
Chief amongst these effects is the enhancement of the endocrine system. The endocrine system includes all of the glands and hormones they secret, that exist in the body and control such conditions. Such as digestion, brain functions, nervous system physiology and energy levels. Also the hormonal regulation is responsible for all the physiological attributes that enable the myriad sensation of a vibrant life.
Maca Root has also been called an adaptogen, which means that it also increases the body’s ability to defend itself against all physical and mental weakening, henceforth potential illnesses. It is believed it achieves this by supporting adrenal and pituitary gland health, both of which underlie the proper function of the endocrine system.
Those using Maca Root derive a variety of benefits in accordance with their individual needs. Finding that it significantly boost stamina, increased energy, and the feeling of general well being. In fact, recently Maca Root has been used as an excellent alternative to anabolic steroids amongst athletes seeking hypertrophy.
Still another pain remedy one might consider, is taking 600 mg of (ALA) Alpha Lipoic Acid daily. Also in a randomized placebo — controlled study in Russia and Israel showed that 600 mg of ALA daily can also greatly ease the systems of neuropathy or diabetic polyneuropathy. With another non — prescription approach being “Benofotiamine,” as we learned about from Dr. Charles Beauchamp MD, Ph.D.
Taming Chronic pain with turmeric, studies have shown this table spice to be actually 3 times more effective at easing pain than aspirin, ibuprofen or naxproxen. Plus also relieves chronic pain for 50 percent of those people struggling with Fibromyalgia according to Cornell Rearchers, even though I feel one must also feed their nutrition what is needed.
Also when Danish researchers asked achy people to jazz up their diets with the spice ginger, it eased muscle and joint, swelling and stiffness for up to 63 percent within two months. As well experts credit ginger’s potent compound called gingerols, which prevents the production of pain trigger hormones and it doesn’t take much either. Add 1 teaspoon of dried ginger or 2 teaspoons of chopped ginger to meals daily.
Grape Seed Extract: flooding your system with antioxidants helps when it comes to pain. And grapes or chemical within grapes, (OPCs) oligomeric proanthocyandin complexes, having been touted as a powerful antioxidant. Studies have found that those taking grape seed extract did substantially increase levels of antioxidants in their blood.
Antioxidants are substances that destroy free radicals – those harmful compounds in the body that damage DNA (genetic material) and even cause cell death. Free radicals are believed to contribute to aging, as well as the development of a number of health problems, including heart disease and cancer. Vitamin E, flavonoids, linoleic acid and OPCs are highly condensed in grape seeds.
Black Seed Oil has 2 volatile oils “nigellone” and “thymoquinone” which was discovered in the herb in 1985. Black Seed provides rich supplies of the polyunsaturated fatty acid that helps regulate metabolism, carrying toxins to the skin for elimination. A deficiency in polyunsaturated fatty acids can lead to wide number of health concerns including nervous system disorders.
The Canon of Medicine, a standard medieval text, referred to black seed as the seed that stimulates the body’s own energy and helps recovery from fatigue. The ancient Egyptians knew and used the black seed describing it as a panacea (cure all for problems and disease.) My wonder if they knew all the way back then, maybe we should try this combination working in synergy…. to see what the benefits will be as a cure all that ends all pain. Thank You Stacey Hartwell – Fields for your contribution into this blog post
It’s about positive thoughts you have to believe what you’re doing…. it’s the Placebo Effect. You have to have Faith and remember it takes time for your body to heal. Sometimes people have to give their specific treatment enough time to work. Sometimes it takes six months to two years for most cancer patients to become cancer free depending upon the type.
The hardest part about healing is the choices you have, should I go the conventional route or do the alternative and you do not know what choice is the correct one. So that is the confusing part of the journey. Listening to your inner voice and letting that guide you. The choices are numerous indeed to start with and some are complicated to research.
What’s out there are The Native American Way of Healing, Ayurveda, Reif Machine, Hulda Clark, Hoxey Treatment, Essiac Tea, Gerson Therapy, High Does Vitamin C Therapy. Also Essential Oils, Aloe Vera Juice, Ozone Therapy and Oxygen Chamber. Not to mention the Modified Gerson Diet and Liposomal Vitamin C contradicting The Budwig Protocol.
Making it even more conflicting is when you hear Aloe Vera Juice and Baking Soda and water lowering potassium levels. Will one treatment counter balance another, also how about exercise which is beneficial and which is not. Does it take the vigorous exercise of swimming, bicycling or bouncing on a trampoline to provide lymphasizing ( keep the lymph fluid flowing in the lymphatic system.)
In my research the number one reason for cancer and an oppressed immune system is this reason: Selenium is required for the proper activity of a group of enzymes called glutathione peroxidases. (You’ll sometimes see the abbreviation “GPO” or “GPx” for a glutathione peroxidase enzyme.) These enzymes play a role in the body’s detoxification system and provide protection against oxidative stress. (Oxidative stress is physiological circumstance in which there is excessive risk of oxygen – related damage to the body.) Of the eight known glutathione peroxidase enzymes, five of them require selenium.
In addition to the activity of glutathione peroxidase, selenium-containing enzymes are involved in recycling of vitamin C from its spent form back to its active one, allowing for greater antioxidant protection. Selenium is KEY to mercury detox (cadmium, too) AND liver detox AND restoration. Selenium was established as essential nutrient (when just considered a poison before) by NIH researcher conducting LIVER studies! RESEARCH of actual human study with 141 medically documented terminal patients noted never less than 400 micrograms worked and stated “that was rare” and that it usually took from 900 micrograms to 2,000 micrograms and in one case 5,500 micrograms daily!
While supplementing with Alta Health Product Silica, Innate Response Selenium and GTF Chromium and a good source of apricot seeds ( Apricot seeds should be bitter and sun dried three days before consuming them.)With also doing some form of meditation for reducing mental anguish and stress load. This all said, “to clear up your confusion ….one must know in their heart what is best for them?” Infrared Sauna Detoxification… et cetera!!!! I would like to Thank YirmeYahbarYhuh, Angel Howerton and Maria Melnyk for their insight and contribution putting this blog post together
I am a cancer survivor and back in the 90′s, I was diagnosed with an aggressive form of prostate cancer. I was told I would probably be dead in six months. The doctor got busy scheduling me for several surgeries, chemo, spot radiation treatments and who knows what else.Since having cancer was new to me…. I started to go into a depressed mindset. Where I lived, every day I saw a little old man out walking who always passed my house.
I eventually met this old man as I was outside when he passed me by. He stopped walking and we got to talking.He asked me why I seemed so down, so I told him. He was one of the most “in your face” kinds of person I have ever met. His first statement after I told him was “What you going to do about it?” I started telling him about all the surgeries they planned when he stopped me. “No — what are YOU going to do?
Are you going to kill the cancer or let it kill you?” I was stunned. I had never heard this before. As I was thinking, he asked me “How much for a chicken?” I don’t know. I have never bought a live chicken. All I know is they sell chicken meat at the store. I guessed and said around $20, why? “For the price of a chicken, you could go to a Herbalist in China and let yourself be healed.”
You can be healed just with herbs? “Yes, the Chinese have been healing this way for 1000′s of years.” Since that time I have been researching herbs and their healing properties. First of all, I am not a doctor. I cannot tell you what to do or what to take. I have had a few years of medical schooling and training and I have attended to others in pain and going through cancer.
I have noticed that a lot of drugs that are prescribed by doctors (Chemo) do not work as well as they should. I refused my doctor’s surgery plans and was resolved enough to tackle my problems and cure myself. I did go back to see my doctor after…. I was supposed to be dead and he was very surprised. Since that time… I have been studying natural healings for almost 20 years now.
Before he died, the old Chinese man told me that all healing begins in our stomach. As we eat foods the stomach acid breaks down the food so we can ingest the nutrients. As we reach +/- 40 years old, our stomach starts to generate less acid to digest the food. This in turn causes acid reflux disease.
If you do not generate enough acid to break down your foods, you get very little nutritional benefit to the foods you eat.
Here is some information from Dr. Theodore A. Baroody, author of book Alkalize or Die. Many factors can contribute to various diseases. But, little is known about the fact that over-acidity causes more illnesses and all boils down to our unhealthy diet and standard of living. People are responsible to retain the pH balance of blood, as the main important factor in regulating our body temperature and strengthening bodily functions and systems.
A microbiologist, Dr. Young, states that over-acidity can totally interfere with life itself. Losing the alkalinity of your body corrodes body tissue and damage all cellular activities, blood circulation and hormone production. As much as our body’s effort to repair itself is to neutralize the excess acids, the tendency of borrowing essentials from alkaline reserves and minerals of our body such as calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium.
“Here are some of the health problems caused by an acidic body…”
• Overweight and Obesity
• Headache, Low Energy, Fatigue and Stress
• Joint Pain, Arthritis and Osteoporosis
• Frequent Colds, Bronchitis, Infections, Headaches
• Increase in Blood Sugar and Heart Attack
The stomach is the first organ we need to get correct. When once corrected, when your body is reset to alkaline, it starts to respond fairly quickly and allows the body to start to heal itself and start to self-correct the problems of being toxic. Normally it does not happen overnight to reverse all the damage we have done to it but we need to start somewhere.
If we can do the job of healing ourselves by using natural methods with no side effects then let’s do it. My final thoughts on the matter are that if you do not balance your body’s pH acidity levels first, then any other attempt at applying any healing herbs, oils, foods or drinks that will only be partially successful.
