Is Terry Fox a True Hero?

  At the age of  eighteen, he was diagnosed with osteogenic sarcoma and  for those of you who aren’t doctors, this means bone cancer. As a result his right leg had to be amputated  to 15 inches above the knee in 1977.  When he was in the hospital he saw cancer patients,  many of  them  children  and  decided to run across Canada to raise $1 million  for cancer research.

   The idea  for the Marathon of Hope came from Terry Fox alone. He trained secretly  by  running about  four thousand kilometers.  When  he  determined he was ready he announced that he would run across the country.  He hadn’t even  told  his  family.  His  original  goal  was  to  raise  a  dollar  from  every Canadian.

   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.

    I can admire the  ‘image’  that  many  sports  and  celebrity heroes put forward, however, as we have now realized in the Tiger Wood’s situation, the image is only an image, and sometimes the real person is someone else and  when they  fall,  they  fall  hard.  Terry Fox  whom  was  a regular guy, not a celebrity,  he is/was a ‘real’ hero and the kind we will never  forget.

I’ve Got Cancer, Now What?

  People they can’t just reach and grab everything off  the shelf, use it and expect to heal. By itself  High Dose Intravenous vitamin C works… Budwig same thing.  However, when you put them together they cancel each other. That’s why its wise to use a base protocol  Budwig or Gerson  and research other things like Chaga Mushroom or Moringa.

   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.

My Cancer Journey by Sherri Shilcrat

    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.

My Testimony, Health Schedule and Other Links

    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.

In 1 month  my area of inflammation  went down 75%  and my numbers improved;   so it was working and didn’t have to compromise my immune system. I now also had a lot more energy.  I went through a very intense program to fight the battle with cancer…. intense IV therapy,  supplements,  needles, German acupuncture, Gerson Therapy and essential oils.

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!

My Protocol

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
  • Get health coach-
  • Feel free to contact me at dparreno@trebnet.com or 416-885-0888

Live Life With Unconditional Love

   With  the  intentions  now  of  writing  blog  post  for  Cancer  Patients      and  Survivors,  this  amazing blog post comes  from Paula Doyle-Weigel.  Having estrogen- progesterone driven breast cancer removed only to see      it  comeback  six  months  later.  As women enter middle age  this natural phenomenon tips toward estrogen driven.

   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.

Great Chinese Secret

   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.

   YET the United States  has one of  the lowest life expectancies amongst developed nations, at about 79 years. Which is also lower than Cuba and marginally  beats  Slovenia.  Maybe it has something  to do with our own immigration policy… allowing other countries illnesses into our country. Meanwhile with a Chinese more controlled society spending is only $277   per capita or 4.7 percent of  it’s GDP but cancer death rates are higher.

   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. 

   If  you traveled to China  via Youtube,  you might  find these statistics unbelievable;  considering  Hong Kong,  Beijing  an  Shanghai  are  filthy    with horrible air quality  and also tap water needing boiled before being drank. Therefore is the proverbial question isdoes Chinese Traditional    Medicine…. keep  their  citizens  healthy longer or is it something they’re  doing that prevents illness.

    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.

   Seeking balance,  energetic workouts,  aerobatic exercise  are  yang –    they heat us up , deep breathing are the yin that calms us down.  Tai Chi gives you a sense of balance, peacefulness. Although nobody has worked  out how to measure chi,  this vital energy  that  exercise promotes is that  feel good source you enjoy after exercise. While  many  studies show  the  benefits to energy levels and immunity in energy medicine.

   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

   Declining her brothers persistent urging to have chemotherapy  (he also teaches in Medical School in China.) Charlotte opted  instead  for Gerson Therapy which is labor intensed + Chinese Herbal Medicine, clean diet, Qigong and The YingYang Philosophy    of  fire  and  water.  Charlotte  stayed  focused on YingYang Theory  and made herself    in  remission  in  3.5 months.  While  finding  her  Secret of  Curing Cancer  lies  within Mother Nature.  Back home  in greater China region ( China, HongKong and Taiwan), almost every cancer patient uses belly breath. This helps with adding oxygen into your bloodstream and detox via lung which cancer cells hate.

This Is A True Account

   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.)

   Also  MCP  binds to  b-Gelactin protein ( inflammation in cancer patients) the molecules render it incapable of spreading and having anti proliferative, anti metastatic effect. MCP also enhances the effectiveness of  Chemotherapy and protects organs  from the ravages of  radiation.  With another item that you  might  want  to  consider  is  the  protocol  of  Dr.  Brian  Clement  of  the Hippocrates Health Institute  (Blue/Green Algae having every nutrient your body needs especially selenium and digestive enzymes.)

  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.

   The pH balance  is  one  of  delicate balance  with  some  bodily  functions  both acidic and some that are alkaline (thereby,  you  need  stomach acid to absorb your nutrients.) Juicing within the Gerson or Budwig Protocols will provide you with the enzymes which drives the body to heal, to recover and will set the pH alkaline balance naturally.

Diseases Associated With Inflammation

   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    :)

Lets End This CONFUSION

   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.)

    This  all  said  which  is best  for everybody  and  a good starting point in your individual protocol. Listening to my inner being  from all my research, I  would  do  a  parasite  cleanse,  Aloe Vera Juice  for its  anti inflammatory, viral and  fungal properties  with  Green Vegetable Juice and Essiac Tea  for a gentle detox. Adding Jason Winters Classical Blend Tea, Alvita Pau d’arco Tea with Red Clover,  Pacific Yew Tea and CanGest Tea once a day with also a good  form of  digestive enzymes and Hemp Seed Heart  for plant protein.

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   :)

Hi Folks, I Want to Introduce Myself

    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
• Underweight
• Headache, Low Energy, Fatigue and Stress
• Allergies
• Joint Pain, Arthritis and Osteoporosis
• Constipation
• 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.    This Is To Your Good Health.    Howard Knox   :)
