Breaking the Cancer Code

Breaking the Cancer Code is a revolutionary approach to solving the cancer predicament by a world-renowned medical expert  and patient advocate.  Most doctors run scared from cancer, believing it cannot be reversed by the body’s own natural defenses. Here is a doctor who stood up to cancer in the lab, researching how to impart  (teach) the immune system to recognize and destroy cancer.

Coupled with his extraordinary cancer-vaccine research, this book documents the work of a consummate patient advocate specializing in natural healing solutions and the necessary mind-set to reversing cancer. This comprehensive work embodies all the components that help patients heal from this dramatic illness.  Extensive  explanations  of  immunotherapy and cancer vaccines. Integrative compilation of traditional medicines and holistic health-building protocols.  Preventative self-care strategies to build the immune system during and after cancer.          http://www.breakingthecancercode.com/

Why can all of your cells commit suicide?

growth-death-balanceWe’ve discussed how cells can grow and divide through the cell cycle and a process called mitosis.  Equally as important to cells growing and dividing is the ability of cells to die.  Why do cells have to die?

During human development cell death is necessary.  For example,  in the womb fingers  and toes  are attached to one another  by a webbing made of cells.  During development, these cells die so that your fingers and toes are separate. A great non-human example of cells dying during development is the         tadpoleDevmetamorphosis of    a tadpole into a frog.  The cells of the tadpole tail die to make a mature frog that does not have a tail.  As an adult, your hair, skin, gut and other cells constantly divide. In fact ~ 60 billion cells are made each day. Imagine if cells didn’t also die each day – you’d be ENORMOUS!

This cell suicide is called apoptosis (pronounced a-pah-toe-sis) after the Greek meaning “dropping off ” or ” falling off ” of petals from flowers, or leaves from tree.  Apoptosis is      a mechanism that every single cell in your body has to commit suicide. Why in the world would this mechanism exist? In part, it exists for the reasons mentioned above – to also remove unneeded tissue during development or to balance out cell growth. But apoptosis also provides a fail safe  for cells to remove themselves  if they become damaged so  they don’t damage the rest of the organism.

apoptosisSo how does apoptosis work?  Obviously your cells don’t        just kill themselves willy nilly. The cell must receive a trigger the initiates the process.

These triggers can either come from inside or outside the cell.  For example, UV light   from outside of the cell can  trigger damage to the DNA.  If this damage  isn’t repaired,         it will start the process of apoptosis.  As another example, when cancer cells are treated with chemotherapy,  this often damages the DNA or messes with the cell cycle so much  that it triggers apoptosis.

Once triggered, proteins are activated that act like protein scissors, cutting up proteins  and DNA inside the cell.  This does a few things: it shuts down activity within a cell and makes the pieces of the cell smaller … so that they can be packaged up and thrown away.    It’s like a kitchen demo (or any kind of demolition)– you knock down the cabinets with a sledgehammer so that they don’t work to hold your dishes anymore and then break them into small enough pieces that they can easily be thrown in the dumpster.  Once cell pieces are broken down, the cell  packages up the contents (called blebs – see picture at right) and blebbingthese blebs are eaten (actually, they are absorbed…     but “eating blebs” is more fun to say) by neighboring cells.  What’s so awesome about this process is that no trace of the cell is left.  It’s a clean suicide that leaves no trace of the body behind.  Why is this important?

We can compare apoptosis to another type of cell death called necrosis.  If you cut your arm, cells die by necrosis and they spill their contents everywhere.  When this happens, your arm can get inflamed and this inflammatory reaction can be bad for you.  During apoptosis, since everything is cleaned up nice and neat, there is no inflammation and the body can just move along as if nothing happened.

apoptosis_diseaseNow what if the trigger is defective or the machinery is broken and cells don’t die when they are supposed to?  This is one of the causes of cancer.  Of course cancer is a result of too many cells, but this can either be   from cells growing too fast OR  from cells not dying  when they are supposed to OR a combination of both.  On the other hand, what if too many cells die when they aren’t supposed to?

This can cause the neurodegeneration found in Alzheimer’s disease or the loss of immune cells in HIV/AIDS infection.  Therefore,  understanding apoptosis and the exact way that cells die can help scientists to induce cell suicide (e.g., to kill cancer cells) or prevent it when needed.

How and why do cells divide? The cell cycle!

You started off as one cell: one tiny little zygote containing a full set of DNA (23 pairs of chromosomes).  As an adult human being, you are now made up of over 37 trillion cells. This means that that one cell  divided to make two cells, each of those cells divided to make 4 cells, those 4 cells divided to make 8 cells and on and on until the 37 trillion cells that make up you today. Even now, your body makes around 60 billion cells each day to create new skin cells, intestine cells, hair cells and and nail cells. When you cut yourself, the body needs to make new cells to heal.  And if your cells divide out of control, this can cause cancer and if they stop diving this causes of aging. So understanding how cells divide is super important!

The cell cycle, which is the process of one cell and one set of DNA turing into two cells with two sets of DNA.  There are three main parts of the cell cycle:

1.  To make two cells from one, you can imagine that a few important things need to happen.  First, you need the cell to grow to get bigger and to accumulate enough nutrients to support two cells.  Second, you need to replicate the DNA so that when the cell divides, each “daughter” cell gets one copy of the DNA. These two things happen in the interphase part of the cell cycle.  Interphase is separated into 3 parts

  • Gap 1 (usually just called G1 phase) where the cell grows
  • Synthesis (usually just called S phase) where the DNA is copied so that two complete copies of DNA are now in the cell
  • Gap 2 (usually just called G2) where the cell grows some more

2. Once the cell has copied the DNA and grown big enough to split into two cells, the cell undergoes mitosis.  Mitosis is when the copied chromosomes are separated into two different cells.  Remember that if you took all the DNA in a cell and stretched it out from end to end that it would be 6-10 feet long? Since this DNA is already replicated by the time the cell gets to mitosis, there are 92 chromosomes (two copies of the two pairs of 23 chromosomes) and 12-20 feet of DNA that needs to be organized and sorted into two separate cells.  How does the cell make this nearly impossible sounding task happen?  First, when each chromosome makes a copy of itself, it stays connected to the orignal (kind of like if there were little protein magnets holding them together). mitosis

 Second, when the chromosomes are ready to separate into different cells they “condense”, getting much, much smaller (see the blue DNA in the photo above).  Third, there are mechanisms in the cell that make the chromosomes line up.  So what you end up with are all of the chromosomes in tight little bundles lined up in a row.  At that point, the cell creates “ropes” out of a protein called microtubules that pull the copied chromosomes apart into the two separate cells.

Thirdly, now that the DNA is separated into the two new cells, these cells have to officially split into two in a process called cytokinesis.  You can imagine this is like pulling a drawstring closed to pinch the space between the two cells until they have completely split apart.

Fixing Our Genes, by Magdalena Eriksson

Sensational headlines have been streaming across presses for several years now: GENE FOR OBESITY FOUND, SCIENTISTS IDENTIFY GENE LINKED TO HEART DISEASE, or CANCER GENE GIVES HOPE FOR CURE. Each refuels the hope that powerful therapies against such major health threats will soon emerge from the pipeline of medical science. Diagnostics based on genetics are now commonly used, for example, when considering surgery against breast cancer, and in prenatal screening for inheritable diseases. But we’re still waiting for a generation of genetic treatments that may provide miraculous cure-alls to our most persistent and pernicious illnesses.

Expectations of genetic medicine surged after a breakthrough in 1990, when four-year-old Ashanthi De Silva from Cleveland became the first gene therapy patient. The girl suffered from a problem called severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID), often dubbed “bubble-boy syndrome” since its sufferers must live in a sterile environment or risk acquiring a life-threatening infection. De Silva’s form of SCID was caused by a mutation in the gene for the protein adenosine deaminase, or ADA, an enzyme that is necessary for the immune system. De Silva’s body could not produce functioning ADA.

In a pioneering experiment, De Silva’s doctors gave her healthy copies of the gene that produces ADA. They placed the healthy gene inside a modified virus and allowed the virus to infect blood cells they had drawn from De Silva. They then injected the blood cells back into her body. The girl’s new gene started to generate functioning ADA, resuscitating her immune system, and she has since lived a healthy life.

Yet, after this initial success, subsequent gene therapy procedures haven’t always been so trouble-free. In De Silva’s case, the single healthy gene she received was sufficient to restore her immune system. People who suffer from other single-gene diseases, such as cystic fibrosis, sickle-cell anemia, or hemophilia, may also find help in gene therapy. But many genetic diseases involve the malfunction of multiple genes, and fixing one gene is often a formidable task.

In a Paris hospital in 2001, a group of young children who, like De Silva, suffered from SCID participated in a study. In these children, SCID was caused by a mutation in a gene called gamma-c. Through gene therapy, they received DNA with a flawless gamma-c gene, which was expected to stimulate the growth of immune cells in their bone marrow. For most of the children, the treatment was a success. The gamma-c gene became an established component of the children’s bone marrow cells, and they were able to live normal lives.

Time passed and suddenly the good news turned dark. A year after the treatment, in October of 2002, one of the children developed leukemia. At first, doctors dismissed the incidence as bad luck, but when a second child, in January 2003, also developed leukemia, they began to look for the cause.

They learned that genes delivered through viruses prefer to integrate at active, loosely packed, portions of the genome, rather than at random sites. The new gene had inserted itself near a gene called LMO2, which plays a role in leukemia. This unexpected DNA insertion turned on the production of the LMO2 protein, which caused the development of leukemia.

The doctors had inadvertently discovered another factor to consider for making gene therapy safe. The two children have since recovered from their leukemia, but the experiment shows the risks required for scientists to make progress and steadily increase their knowledge.

The French trial also illustrates how complex our genetic systems are and how difficult it is to predict what will happen when we upset its fine-tuned balance. If you touch one gene, surprising connections with other genes may announce themselves in unexpected ways. The very principle behind gene therapy sets it apart from many other therapies. Once a new gene has become a permanent part of the genome in a cell, you may no longer have the option of discontinuing the treatment in case its effects prove detrimental. For some time to come, gene therapy may remain a double-edged sword.

Bud Romine was diagnosed with incurable cancer in 1994. He was given three years to live. In 1996 a newspaper article caught his eye.

The article described the work of a local doctor, Brian Druker, who was testing a new kind of cancer drug. In 1997, months away from death, Bud Romine became the first patient ever to take Gleevec. Within 17 days, Bud had returned to perfect health. Indeed, the drug seems to cure everyone with Bud’s disease — Chronic Myeloid Leukemia — by fixing the DNA that causes it. Today, the prospect of more drugs that work at the level of DNA is a real one. In 1990, Gleevec was the only one in development. There are currently hundreds of drugs in development that might work in the same revolutionary way on different kinds of cancer.

The final work for the DNA scientists is identifying all the damaged genes that cause cancer. But with the Human Genome Project finished, a single lab will be able to do this in just five years. Fifty years after Crick and Watson discovered the double helix, the secret of life may finally be living up to its name.

Most people are unwilling to seek and create their own interpretations of these symbols. Instead, they blindly submit to preconceived definitions and connotations given by sources unknown.

What Hippocrates Knew?

Image result for let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food


What We Can Learn From Hippocrates,           “The Father of Western Medicine”

Have you ever heard the quote, “Let food my thy medicine and medicine thy food”?      Well it’s an awesome quote and captures health at it’s very essence.


Hippocrates was a Greek physician during Classical Greece. He was known as the    “Father of Western Medicine”. Some how I don’t think western medicine resembles      ANY of Hippocrates teachings.

So how did Hippocrates treat disease?

He was the first physician of his time to believe that illness WAS NOT punishment from the gods(what people believed  at the time). He theorized that diseases were caused naturally and could be treated naturally.

During his time, human dissection was forbidden because they knew little about human anatomy and physiology. Therefore, patients were treated using general prognosis instead of diagnosis, which he was very successful with.

Hippocratic medicine was humble and passive. The therapeutic approach was based on “the healing power of nature”. According to this doctrine, the body contains within itself the power to re-balance the four humours and heal itself .Hippocratic therapy focused on simply easing this natural process. To this end, Hippocrates believed “rest and immobilization [were] of capital importance.”

In general, the Hippocratic medicine was very kind to the patient; treatment was gentle, and emphasized keeping the patient clean and sterile. For example, only clean water or wine were ever used on wounds, though “dry” treatment was preferable.

Hippocrates was reluctant to administer drugs and engage in specialized treatment that might prove to be wrongly chosen; generalized therapy followed a generalized diagnosis. Generalized treatments he prescribed include fasting and the consumption of apple cider vinegar. Hippocrates once said that “to eat when you are sick, is to feed your sickness.” However, potent drugs were used on certain occasions.

Hippocrates accomplished much in his time but after he died many of his practices were forgotten. I also believe physicians started searching for other means of treatment. Hippocrates believed that food could be used to improve health.

Many individuals today have ignored their diet. They no longer believe that their diet matters. That is a HUGE lie. There is no shortcut to being healthy. One cannot eat whatever they want and expect to be healthy. Yes, there is medication to “help” with certain ailments but it doesn’t fix the problem nor does it heal the body. The human body is a magnificent creation that can actually heal itself when given the right things. Ignoring our health problems, ignoring obesity, ignoring chronic illness is the worst thing we can do for ourselves.

Did you know that most people can reverse their diabetes and chronic illness through taking care of themselves? Did you know the medication imbalances other ares of the body causing harmful side effects? Just because some people ignore the side effects doesn’t mean they are not there.

This may sound harsh. Have you ever heard of tough love? That me. That’s why I do. Why? Because I care. I care enough about your personal health to tell you to put down the food that is slowly killing you and tell you to pick up REAL food. I care because I don’t want you to be obese or suffer from ailments or chronic pain or chronic illness.

We actually have the power to influence ourselves and change our health. It’s hard work but isn’t anything worth having? Some people believe fitness and being healthy is just about looks…WRONG! When you take care of yourself, your body completely changes from the inside out which happens to give you more attractive features.

What are the steps to achieving optimal health?

Achieving optimal health has many facets. It’s not just one thing.

Exercise is crucial for mental and physical health. I am not just talking about taking a walk. I am talking about actually pushing yourself and challenging yourself because that is where you will find your results.

Nutrition is KEY! How do I define good nutrition? A diet that consists of no processed foods (or VERY rarely, not on a daily basis), no sugary drinks such as soda and juices. I say juices because it is loaded with sugar and most of the time has tons of added sugar, sometimes as much as an energy drink. Eating whole foods such as vegetables, lean meats, protein, nuts, grains(if your body does well with them). Limiting candy, cakes, pasties, coffees with sugar, syrup and whip cream.  READ LABELS.

You may think that sounds hardcore, but sugar does more harm to our body than good. I am not saying kick out all sugar, but I am saying to eat the right forms and to eat it in moderation. I have learned all this the hard way and doing all these things myself. Heck, I used to have a sugar drawl and went to it daily. Even though I take great care of my teeth, sugar has destroyed my teeth. When we eat sugar, if we do not burn it off right away it is stored in our midsection. So next time you indulge I want you to ask yourself if you are prepared to work it off. Our bodies also become accustomed to the amount of sugar we eat. It becomes an addiction and this is where we develop cravings. BUT it’s never too late! You can detox from sugar and your body will not crave sugar as much anymore. But that’s all up to you.

The ball is in your court. Your health is in your hands, not your doctors. Doctors are more like people to receive guidance from and consult with…sometimes they are even wrong. Be proactive about your health and get back to basics. I promise you won’t regret it. But giving up or giving in will do you more disservice. Care about yourself and let it show!

In the words of Hippocrates, “Let food be thy medicine and medicine thy food”.

As a personal invitation, if you are reading this blog and want optimal health but feel you do not have the support you need to succeed, comment or contact me. I do care about your individual health and if all you need is some support, I am here! I am here if you do not know where to start. Let’s get you in the best shape of your life! Let’s get you feeling better! Let’s create the best version of you!


The principles taught by Hippocrates are,
1. a physician should work not for personal gain but for love of humanity,
2. disease should be studied by meticulous observation, and cases should be carefully recorded
and studied to establish a prognosis,
3. disease is often the result of environmental forces, diet, climate, and occupation, and
4. a physician should emphasize simple treatment supplemented with careful diet and surgical intervention when necessary.
In spite of the breathtaking rapidity of developments in modern Medicine, the basic concepts are
still the same.
Greek philosopher Plato called Hippocrates, “The Asclepiad of Kos.” Greek philosopher Aristotle
said that, Hippocrates was called “The Great Physician.” Hippocrates had a philosophical approach
to Medicine. He regarded the body as a “WHOLE” – that is, as an Organism.
His medical practice resulted from his collection of information regarding parts of the body into an embracing concept and thereafter, the division of the “WHOLE” into its parts. He had promoted Medicine based on objective observation and deductive reasoning.
Hippocrates stated that it is more important to know what sort of person has a disease than to know what sort of disease a person has. In a quote attributed to Hippocrates, he claimed that wherever the
art of Medicine is loved,  there is also a love of humanity. Hippocrates may not have authored the so-called “Hippocratic Oath”, but he could have stressed the ethical code for the medical profession. He had also stressed the importance of diet and hygiene.

d Hippocrates – Who were they?

Natural Science provides systematized knowledge of the physical world      and its branches include Zoology, Botany, Chemistry, Physics, and Geology. The Faculty of Medicine  represents  Biological Sciences  that are concerned with knowledge bearing on the relation of man to nature. Medical Science as a Natural Science must be concerned with the following  two questions:

1. What is the Status of Man in Nature?

2. What is the true or real Nature of Man?

The first question deals with man’s relationship with the physical world in which man exists. The physical world represents the total of all things in Time and Space or the entire physical universe.
The term Nature includes the Power, Force, and Laws that regulate or operate in the physical world.
In Biology, the Theory of Evolution proposes a view about the origin of species and it describes that things in Nature change under the influence of Time. It opposes various cultural, and religious beliefs about the origin of man and his Status as a Created Being. The second question is about the essential characteristics or qualities that makes or describes man’s essence as a Human Being. The Nature of Man deals with the inborn character, innate disposition, and inherent tendencies of the Whole Person and it includes the instincts, desires, appetites, drives etc., of the Person apart from the vital functions of specialized organs. Man’s Nature could be detected from the activities of the human organism and from the forces that operate and influence these activities.

Eat Food. Not Too much. Mostly Plants.Michael Pollan, renowned food expert and journalist, 2007 A.D.

The healing properties of food have been reported by cultures worldwide throughout history. However, the past decade has presented an explosion of clinical research to show specifically what health benefits individual foods can offer, identifying the various nutrients and phytochemicals associated with these benefits.

Many fruits, vegetables, and unprocessed whole foods have properties that can benefit   our health. Studies also in the past decade have taken nutritional research beyond protein, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins and minerals. Chemicals in the plants called phytochemicals have been a specific focus in the past decade, offering benefits such as cancer prevention, cholesterol reduction, and hormone regulation, to name a few.

There is truly a cornucopia of nutritional benefits that have been:


Hippocratic theory

Hippocrates is credited with being the first person to believe that diseases were caused naturally, not because of superstition and gods. Hippocrates was credited by the disciples of Pythagoras of allying philosophy and medicine. He separated the discipline of medicine from religion, believing and arguing that disease was not a punishment inflicted by the gods but rather the product of environmental factors, diet, and living habits. Indeed there is not a single mention of a mystical illness in the entirety of the Hippocratic Corpus. However, Hippocrates did work with many convictions that were based on what is now known to be incorrect anatomy and physiology, such as Humourism.




In ancient Greece, the knowledge of Medicine was imparted at Medical Schools and such institutions of Learning were known as ‘Askleipion’.

SPIRITUALITY SCIENCE - WHOLE MEDICINE: This ancient School of Medicine is called the 'Askleipion' and this could be the Hippocratic Medical School of Kos, Greece.

SPIRITUALITY SCIENCE – WHOLE MEDICINE: This ancient School of Medicine is called the ‘Askleipion’ and this could be the Hippocratic Medical School of Kos, Greece.


The Hippocratic school held that illness was the result of an imbalance in the body of the four humours, fluids which were naturally equal in proportion (pepsis). When the four humours, blood, black bile, yellow bile and phlegm, were not in balance (dyscrasia, meaning “bad mixture”), a person would become sick and remain that way until the balance was somehow restored. Hippocratic therapy was directed towards restoring this balance. For instance, utilizing citrus was thought to be beneficial when an overabundance of phlegm was suspected.

rn from Ancient Greek medicine?

Ancient Greek schools of medicine were split (into the Knidian and Koan) on how to deal with disease. The Knidian School of medicine focused on diagnosis. Medicine at the time of Hippocrates knew almost nothing of human anatomy and physiology because of the Greek taboo forbidding the dissection of humans. The Knidian School consequently failed to distinguish when one disease caused many possible series of symptoms. The Hippocratic School or Koan School achieved greater success by applying general diagnoses and passive treatments. Its focus was on patient care and prognosis, not diagnosis. It could effectively treat diseases and allowed for a great development in clinical practice.


Another important concept in Hippocratic medicine was that of a crisis, a point in the progression of disease at which either the illness would begin to triumph and the patient would succumb to death, or the opposite would occur and natural processes would make the patient recover. After a crisis, a relapse might follow, and then another deciding crisis. According to this doctrine, crises tend to occur on critical days, which were supposed to be a fixed time after the contraction of a disease. If a crisis occurred on a day far from a critical day, a relapse might be expected.
Hippocratic medicine was humble and passive. The therapeutic approach was based on “the healing power of nature” (“vis medicatrix naturae” in Latin). According to this doctrine, the body contains within itself the power to re-balance the four humours and heal itself (physis). Hippocratic therapy focused on simply easing this natural process. To this end, Hippocrates believed “rest and immobilization [were] of capital importance.” In general, the Hippocratic medicine was very kind to the patient; treatment was gentle, and emphasized keeping the patient clean and sterile. For example, only clean water or wine were ever used on wounds, though “dry” treatment was preferable.
Hippocrates was reluctant to administer drugs and engage in specialized treatment that might prove to be wrongly chosen; generalized therapy followed a generalized diagnosis. However, potent drugs were used on certain occasions. This passive approach was very successful in treating relatively simple ailments such as broken bones which required traction to stretch the skeletal system and relieve pressure on the injured area. The Hippocratic bench and other devices were used to this end.
One of the strengths of Hippocratic medicine was its emphasis on prognosis. At Hippocrates’ time, medicinal therapy was quite immature, and often the best thing that physicians could do was to evaluate an illness and predict its likely progression based upon data collected in detailed case histories.
Medicine is the Science and Art of Diagnosing, Curing, and Preventing Disease and it includes the relief of pain, minimizing of disabilities, improving, preserving and maintaining health. The term ‘Medicine’ is also used to describe any drug or other substance used in treating disease, healing, or relieving pain. In several native traditions across the globe, Medicine may include any object, spell, rite, etc., supposed to have natural or supernatural powers as a remedy, curative, preventive, or protective. The idea of ‘Take One’s Medicine describes the requirement to endure just punishment or accepting the results of one’s action. In my view, Medicine must be concerned with the status of man in the universe, in his natural environment, in his social community while the man exists as an individual with individuality. In other words, Medicine as a Science must primarily be concerned with the biological basis for the reality of man’s physical existence in the world. A systematic study of the biological basis of human existence would demand  the study of Soul and Spirit as the vital, animating principle found in all living things. I seek the existence of Soul and Spirit in a substance that is basic to life activities. Spirit or Soul must be found in a living material substance that is responsible for all living processes. The term Soul and Spirit belong to the materialistic realm where the physical reality of man’s biological existence is established. Further, I do not intend to use the term Soul or Spirit as a metaphysical or transcendental reality independent of the living organism. I would define the phrase “Whole Medicine” as a systematic study of the Physical, Mental, Moral, Social, and Spiritual aspects of Man’s Well-Being in relation to health and disease while the man exists as a Created Being.

Spiritualism – The Biological Basis of Spirituality



SPIRITUALITY SCIENCE - WHOLE MEDICINE: If man is viewed as a "WHOLE" Organism, the organism is derived by the growth, multiplication, and development of this "Whole Cell", the fertilized Ovum. I am advocating a systematic study of the Physical, Mental, Moral, Social, and Spiritual aspects of man's well-being in relation to health and disease. Such as study must include the concept of this "WHOLE CELL" which has all the attributes that can be observed in man.

If the term Soul or Spirit describes the vital, animating principle that governs and operates the existence of the human organism, its nature and functions can be derived from studying the structure and functions of the Red Blood Cell or Erythrocyte which simply exists to integrate and to harmonize the functions of trillions of individual cells, tissues, and the organ systems that constitute the Whole Person who exists as an Individual with Individuality. Health is that condition of the body in which the physiological elements are in balance and in which the various parts function harmoniously with one another. Health represents harmony or good order, or equilibrium in the body. I describe Spirituality as the operating Principle that generates this functional unity, good order, and equilibrium among the cells, tissues, organs, and the organ systems that comprise the human organism and the human Individual who exists because of these functions experiences Peace, Harmony, and Tranquility in his living condition.

The Theory of Medicine will determine the nature of The Art of Medicine that is practiced to establish the Physician – Patient Relationship. If The Art of Medicine is based upon Spirituality Science, the Physician – Patient Relationship will have a Spiritual basis. I would ask my readers to give attention to the problems of modern medical practice and we need a Medical Theory that would have a bearing on the following three aspects of The Art of Medicine:

1.  Is Health is better served by the General Practitioner treating the Whole Man or by a Specialist treating a functionally differentiated Special Organ or Organ System?

2. What should be the nature of the Physician-Patient relationship? Is there a therapeutic factor in the relationship that underlines the effectiveness of the Physician’s skills in all other respects?

3. What is the interaction between mind and body in the origin and in the cure of disease?

How to Have A Super Strong Immune System

It can be said that everyone needs about forty different nutrients each day to stay healthy.  This is scientific fact.

What can’t be said is that we all need the same amount of these nutrients, and we all differ greatly in our ability to absorb them due to genetic background, current health problems, etc.  This needs to be assessed on an individual basis, taking account of one’s personal biochemistry.  What most people do not realise is how difficult it is to obtain these vitally important factors, which amplify our immune systems in a positive manner, from foodstuffs we consume on a daily basis.

Most of our food shopping, if not all, is purchased in supermarkets where we are at the mercy of the food industry. The practices modern farming employs, methods used for storing, processing and cooking foods and the formulations used for convenience packaged and canned food are seriously to blame for foodstuff’s which are both deficient and produce out-of-balance distorted nutrients; these are heavily contaminated with additives and toxins which further compromise the immune system.

So, in view of this, what measures can we take to ensure our on-going health in these conditions?  By far the best idea is to look to strengthening  our immune system so that we are better protected from toxins in our food and the many and varied environmental toxins affecting everybody detrimentally every day of our lives.

To strengthen our immune system, we must first and foremost stop, or drastically reduce, our consumption of foods which add to our already over-burdened system and then attempt to clear toxins which are already present.  A two-pronged attack one might say.  In these circumstances, the foods we should be choosing should be very nutrient-dense,  minimising both exogenous and endogenous toxins, encourage good absorption and toxin elimination from the tissues.  This in turn will facilitate toxin removal from the  body via the organs of excretion, particularly the out-of-balance nutrients which the body holds in excess.

Extra nutrients necessary to reverse deficiencies  and to facilitate toxin removal should be based on individual idiosyncrasies and defined via a nutritionally qualified practitioner as self-diagnosis can be difficult and ineffective.

Firstly the enemies of the immune system, some of which are smoke (tobacco and other – incinerators, chimneys, etc.), stress, pollution (busy roads, industry, etc.), radiation, pesticides, carcinogenic chemicals (domestic and industrial), drugs (legal and illegal, medical, etc. – these require medical supervision for reduction or elimination – do not try it alone), food additives (especially colours and flavours), incorrect balance of food (too much sugar, salt or fat), accidents, obesity or starvation, using dangerous forms of weight reduction, inappropriate exercise, genetic defects, infection (from bacteria, viruses, worms, etc.), negative attitudes to life – unhappiness, etc.

Some reasons for boosting your immune system, by way of eating and drinking habits are:-

  1. How fast you age is determined by your immune system.
  2. Your immune system fights off the viruses, bacteria, etc, which try to attack you, from the common but irritating ones like the cold, flu and thrush to serious problems such as Legionaire’s disease and Aids.
  3. The immune system has the power to destroy cancerous cells, as they develop.
  4. Every day your immune system clears the body’s waste disposal system,  ridding dead cells, toxic chemicals, dead bacteria, etc.
  5. Radiation and chemical pollutant effects are minimised by the immune system when working effectively.
  6. Allergies and auto-immune problems, like arthritis are caused by a poorly functioning immune system.
  7. A struggling immune system predisposes you to being ill more often, for longer periods of time and for more days of your life.
  8. With a strong immune system you are virtually invincible and should be able to lead a long, vigorous and healthy life.

A great priority is the ingestion of pure water.  It does depend on a person’s bodyweight, exercise expenditure and the type of food one eats, but, as a generality, four pints of water should be consumed over and above any other liquid intake on a daily basis.  This is to be still, uncontaminated with stimulants, sugars, flavourings or heavy minerals, such as in some bottled waters.  Taking at least this amount gives man health benefits, but in the area I am discussing in this article, it will greatly assist in cleansing the cells and removing toxins.

On the  subject of fluids, remove, or drastically restrict stimulant-containing beverages such as coffee, tea, colas, cordials, fruit drinks and spring waters.  These are all diuretics and cause the body to lose more water than is being replaced, putting most organs, especially the adrenal system, under stress.  The serious effects upon which will, at the very least, manifest in episodes of blood sugar imbalances, hypoglycaemia, and, if carried on for long periods of time, can eventually result in adult-onset diabetes.  Furthermore, ingestion of caffeine from coffee, tea colas and lots of pharmaceutical preparations (and chocolate!) will, in sensitive people, produce digestive and nervous upsets, made worse  by eating processed foods.  Everyone’s mineral absorption is affected negatively  by caffeine ingestion; calcium and magnesium are greatly affected, iron compromised and other necessary nutrients depleted.  Drink more water!

Alcohol, although not a stimulant to the same degree, (more than a tiny amount has depressive effects throughout the nervous system), is a source of toxins and unnecessary calories.  One glass of organically-produced, preferably red, wine, three times per week is now considered to improve the blood circulation, hence having beneficial actions upon the heart, due to its anti-oxidant properties.  For women who have kicked the caffeine habit, and are not sensitive to it, could indulge in the addition of a 50gm bar of organically-produced 70% cocoa-mass dark chocolate with their glass of wine – combining the synergistic effects of both.  A maximum of three a week though!  A great way to improve your iron/magnesium status and counteract the often quoted……… healthy food is boring!

To be optimally fit, healthy, with unlimited energy and with a strong immune system, it is necessary to follow certain nutritional criteria.  I list general ones below:-

Eat fresh, whole foods.  Whenever possible eschew processed and packaged foods, things that have been added to,  refined,  enriched or in some way interfered with,  such as most processed baked goods, commercial peanut butter, candy, ‘cheese’  foods, crisps and corn chips, canned sauces.

Especially abstain from hydrogenated products, such as margarines.  Anything hydrogenated, or partly so, avoid like the plague.  These will seriously upset the way your body  handles its essential fatty acids, culminating in impaired mineral placement and usage.

Products containing preservatives, additives, coloring agents, texturisers and flavourings should be avoided.  Stop using pasteurised, homogenised, fortified, vitamin- added milk and its products.  Most of the problems with dairy products have to do with the  abysmal conditions in which the cows are kept and fed on dry foods with little nutritive value, rather than fresh nutritious grass.  Genetically engineered BST and other hormones are routinely given to boost milk production.  Calcium, although high in milk, is poorly absorbed from this source, since it is improperly balanced with magnesium and recent research suggest that magnesium is the mineral of choice, along with other co-factors, to prevent osteoporosis – only prevalent in milk-consuming nations.

Eat a wide variety of foods.  This way there is less likelihood of your reacting to foods to which you may be slightly sensitive.

Sort out any food sensitivities with professional help.  Have someone test you at least for wheat, corn, soy, dairy and orange – and if you have any sort of arthritis, prepare to be considered sensitive to the nightshade family, comprising potatoes, tomatoes, aubergines, peppers, etc.

Consume a diet high in essential fatty acids – absolutely vital to your immune system.

Fresh only (not canned) mackerel, herring, salmon, etc. should contain some – although these do not come  without  the  ever-present threat of pollution.  Consider linseed oils, walnut oils, all the oily seeds – but never heat in any way – and buy organic, cold-pressed and unrefined only.   It is important not to just consume essential  fatty acids, but to have the balance correct between Omega 3’s (fish/linseed) and Omega 6’s (evening primrose, blackcurrant seed oil, sesame, etc.)  Seek professional help.

Cut down, or better out, sugar and refined carbohydrates.  White and brown sugar, honey, glucose and fake sugars like aspartame and sorbitol, plus all commercially prepared biscuits, cakes, jams, ice-cream, soft drinks and other sweet-tasting processed foods.  Not only do these rot your teeth, but they also adversely disturb metabolism of essential fatty acids, and therefore your hormone profile, cause massive magnesium losses  and worsens copper deficiences.  Refined carbohydrates include anything made with white flour or white rice.

Most of all, listen to your body, it is well-equipped with an efficient immune system, which is able to resist disease and heal injury if we give it what it needs to do so.

True wealth is what we are, not what we have, and we each have control over the type of person we become. Good luck in your endeavours to self-strengthen. http://www.health.harvard.edu/staying-healthy/how-to-boost-your-immune-system 
The ability of an organism to resist a specific infection or toxin by the action of antibodies or sensitized white blood cells is what creates our ‘immunity.’ Our immune systems take a beating trying to fight against natural and industrial waste and poor-quality food and water that causes illness. T-cells, made by the immune system, are the foremost soldiers of our immune system, and our gut flora is like the headquarters sending out ‘troops’ to keep the home front protected. There are ways to have ‘super’ immunity; however, if we look into the phenomenon of the immune system more closely.

As the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases states:

“Unlike B cells, T cells do not recognize free-floating antigens. Rather, their surfaces contain specialized antibody-like receptors that see fragments of antigens on the surfaces of infected or cancerous cells. Helper T cells, or Th cells, coordinate immune responses by communicating with other cells. Some stimulate nearby B cells to produce antibodies, others call in microbe-gobbling cells called phagocytes, and still others activate other T cells.” 

Free radicals can signal T cells to get busy getting rid of inflammation, another big       cause of disease, but they can be over-zealous in doing so, especially in cases of chronic inflammation.

If the immune system becomes overly strained, it starts to attack itself instead of foreign invaders. It can literally become its own worst enemy. This is often how auto-immune diseases begin. B-cells can’t communicate properly with T cells any longer. The goods news is that we can help the immune system do its job, without becoming over-active simply by changing our diet, and altering a few lifestyle habits.

Here are 7 ways to help create a super-healthy immune system:

7 Tips for Super Immunity

  • 1. Food is medicine. You can practically double your immune system’s ability to fight disease with the way you eat – Try eating more leafy greens, fruits and vegetables. Organic fruits and vegetables are choke-full of important immune-boosting antioxidants. Dr. Joel Fuhrman believes you can stay healthy forever, just by changing your nutrition.
  • He believes that you should eat only foods that are high in nutrition. He includes onions, beans, and lots of veggies and fruits. He suggests you should base your meals on phytonutrient-rich foods.Without carotenoids and leafy greens that help boost gut flora, your immune system becomes exhausted.Fuhrman states: “The quality of a diet can be judged base on three simple criteria. Levels of micronutrients (vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals) per calorie. Amounts of macronutrients (fat, carbohydrate, protein) to meet individual needs, without excessive calories that may lead to weight gain or health compromise.Avoidance of potentially toxic substances (such as trans fats) and limited amounts of other potentially harmful substances (such as sodium).”
  • 2. Eating foods high on the ORAC chart also helps to boost immunity – These are foods that fight free radicals in the body, one of the main reasons disease develops and the body turns acid instead of maintaining its alkaline balance. Free radicals are an uncharged molecule that can wreck havoc on the body. They congest our cells and cause us to age faster and be more prone to disease. High ORAC foods include many herbs, like sumac, cloves, and oregano have high ORAC values. So do bran, sorghum, cinnamon, turmeric, Szechuan pepper, and vanilla beans.
  • 3. Stop eating fast-food – Slow-absorbing food is better for your immune system. When you eat ‘fast’ food devoid of nutrients, it makes your digestive system work extra hard to digest something that gives your body no benefit. Many slow-absorbing foods have both fiber and protein, or one or the other, along with important nutrients which also keep your glucose levels from spiking. There is a great documentary, Fast Food Nation, that explains why fast-food makes us sick, tired, and fat.
  • 4. Support healthy gut flora – Eating refined sugar erodes gut flora, while eating fermented foods like Kim Chi or drinking Kombucha can help create healthy gut flora. Dark chocolate has also been shown to provide ‘food’ for healthy gut bacteria. Leafy greens help to create healthy gut flora too. Obviously, taking a probiotic supplement can help as well, since this replaces ‘bad’ bacteria with ‘good’ bacteria, making it harder for the ‘bad guys’ to hang around in your intestinal tract.
  • 5. Get More Sleep – Your body can’t fight free radicals and restore itself if it barely has enough energy to carry out functions like pumping your heart or making sure you breathe. Dr. Fikrig and his colleagues at the Yale School of Medicine has found that our circadian rhythms (sleep and wake cycles) actually govern our immunity. Disturbed sleep patterns means compromised immunity. Make sure when you sleep, you stay asleep, soundly for 7-9 hours nightly. Sleeping even removes toxic waste form the brain!
  • 6. Eat more mushrooms, onions and seeds – Aside  from  eating  your  fruit        and vegetables,  mushrooms,  onions,  and seeds all have their own immune-boosting produce spores and then grow from the hypha of fungi concealed in soil or wood. They are proverbial for rapid growth. They also help to break down things, both in the forest, and in our bodies that shouldn’t be there.
  • This is why many mushrooms are hailed as super-foods and life-enhancers in Chinese medicine. Shiitake, Reishi, and Maitake are excellent.Onions are anti-microbial, anti-viral, and immune boosting wonders, and seeds are like miniature plants, packed with a storehouse of all the nutrients they will need to grow big and strong, so they do the same for you. Sprouted seeds are even better. For example, sprouted broccoli seeds have 50 times the cancer-fighting ability as eating the broccoli plant itself.
  • 7. Take a Daily Walk – Exercise is one of the most important ways to promote a good immune response in the body. You don’t need to over-do it. Intense workouts can actually cause more stress on the body and depress the immune system. Especially if you are already under the weather, keep it light. For the best immune boosting benefits, make walking, running, swimming, jump-roping, or other sports, a daily activity.
  • 8. Use herbs and supplements instead of vaccines and pharmaceuticals – There are literally hundreds of herbs that help boost the immune system and fight off disease. These include things like moringa, olive leaf, astragalus, cloves, oregano, and more.
  • Kathy Abascale lists 30 herbs in her book Herbs & Influenza: How Herbs Used in the 1918 Flu Pandemic Can Be Effective Today that can naturally lessen flu symptoms, including herbs that treat Swine Flu.
  • Conversely, vaccines and pharmaceuticals (especially antibiotics) can dampen your natural immune response, and kill healthy gut flora that are your ‘second brain’ when   it comes to fighting disease.

Turning Tumor Into Scar Tissue

Image result for trust is a golden pathway to heaven

My mom is one of the strongest people that I know. She’s been through hell and back and it’s still kicking ass. She’s had breast cancer twice, had to have one of her breasts removed, has had 3 heart surgerys, and is still fighting heart problems today. I love you so much mom, even though we fight alot doesn’t mean I’ll ever stop caring.  This is my mom’s story of survival  ~Brooklyn Imm ~ 
Here is my cancer story in a nutshell lol I was diagnosed in May 2012 with stage 2 IDC, Triple Negative breast cancer. I had the genetic testing being my mom is the only other woman in the family to ever had it before me, it turned out it wasn’t genetic. So in July, I had a masectomy that turned into a full radical masectomy meaning they scrapped me down to my ribs and took all 40 lymph nodes on that side even tho only the main one was cancerous.
I had a wound vac on for about a month then i had chemo, cytoxin and taxatere for 4 months finishing in Dec 2012. 14 months later it returned in my hilar lymph node in the small “v” shape between my upper and lower lobe of the right lung but outside it. So another biopsy and chemo again, this time taxol, this was before i know about juicing and alternative methods. So this was May 2014 had chemo for 2 months and was gone.
 May 2016 so almost 2 years later it returned but this time in my brain!! 2 tumors were found on my left side, i was falling, headaches, driving over curbs on the right side of my car so i went to my GP and said i need a scan something is wrong!! Got the call that afternoon about the tumors. 2 days later I was at Regions hospital getting fitted for a face mask for targeted radiation. I had 3 one hour session the first week of June. Thats when i get serious about juicing and taking supplements.
 In August they did a MRI and found the back tumor which was originally 2×2 cm was almost gone and the front tumor which was 3×2 cm was down to half its size!!   I had  another scan Nov 9th and both are practically gone!! They told me I lost 65 lbs since last June …. so a total of 165 since original diagnosis. 

🙄😩MY Solution: 🤔😳😕???

 I juice carrots, celery, a whole apple, ginger, turmeric and black pepper daily, YUCK but i force myself to drink it. I take alot of vitamin C, potassium, COQ 10, vitamin D all in high doses. And each week I juice a whole watermelon as i was left having kidney stones from all the chemo and even had surgery once to remove one that was 3/4 the size of my kidney.  Was told this year i have another smaller one and since the watermelon juice, my GFR is in normal range and so is my creatin.
 This in large part is due to talking to Ken and learning about the benefits of juicing and supplements. So they told me 2 days ago I am beating cancer for the 3rd time in 4 years!! Also last winter i had 3 heart surgeries to place 4 stents in my heart but just found out my aortic valve is mildly not working correctly so i hope they repair it soon (through the groin again) and not wait to replace it as that would mean open heart surgery.

Indeed from my research, watermelon has a great amount of glutathione. Glutathione can protect us from cancer. It is an antioxidant. Other fruits that also have glutathione and are rich in antioxidants are berries, oranges, pomegranate, apricots, prunes, avocado, grapefruit, strawberries and peaches. Cinnamon, asparagus, legumes, nuts, spinach and bell peppers can also make our skin healthier.

We often hear glutathione when we talk about skin lightening products. What we don’t know is we can eat cystine-rich food because our body uses cystine and converts it to glutathione. Cystine-rich food includes dairy products such as cheese,yogurt and chicken breast. With cystine-rich food and foods rich in selenium, the production of glutathione in our body is increased. Tuna, beef, chicken, turkey, eggs, cheese, and Brazil nuts are good source of selenium. Brazil nuts are especially rich in selenium, which helps increase the body’s production of glutathione. Other foods rich in selenium include tuna, beef, walnuts, eggs, cottage cheese, and turkey.

To make our skin more beautiful, we can eat food with B-complex. Watermelons also contain Alkaline Water which is all the rage these days. Alkaline water removes toxins and acidity from the body. Some say it also reduces food cravings that leads to weight loss.

Aside from glutathione and alkaline water, watermelon is also rich in beta carotene, potassium, vitamin A, and vitamin B. Personally, I am surpised at how much we can get from watermelons as I reckon it is only made up of water. From now on, next to bananas – let’s add watermelons in our fruits baskets!

What is CoQ10?

CoQ10 is also known as co-enzyme Q10, Q10, vitamin Q10, ubiquinone and ubidecarenone. It is a compound that is naturally produced by the body. The “Q10”   simply refers to the group of chemicals that make up the co-enzyme.

CoQ10 is used by the body’s cells to produce the energy they need to grow and stay healthy. CoQ10 also consists of an antioxidant property that protects the cells from  harmful free radicals.

Free radicals can cause damage to the DNA of a cell which is often linked to the cause       of cancer. CoQ10, protects the body is from the harmful effects of free radicals; hence, reducing one’s risk of developing cancer.

CoQ10 is found in all of the body’s tissues but is more concentrated in the heart, liver, kidneys, pancreas and lungs. CoQ10 is also found in: anchovies, broccoli, beef, salmon, sardines, mackerel, soy oil and peanuts.

As a person gets older, the amount of CoQ10 tends to decrease due to a decline in production levels or a deficiency of vitamin B6. Vitamin B6 can be obtained from chickpeas, avocado, roast beef, fish, chicken breast, tomato and sunflower seeds.

CoQ10 was discovered in 1957, but researchers didn’t discover its benefits as an anti-cancer agent until 1961.  Since, numerous studies have been conducted to determine CoQ10’s role against cancer.

How does CoQ10 work against cancer?

During its first discovery in the 1960s, it was ascertained that patients suffering from myeloma, lymphoma and other types of cancer –  such as: head and neck, breast, lung, pancreas, colon, kidney and prostate –  had lower levels of CoQ10 in their blood. Studies suggest that CoQ10 can be used to help boost the immune system. As a result, CoQ10 became one of several adjuvant therapies for cancer. An adjuvant therapy is an auxillary treatment given after the primary treatment to augment the patient’s healing process.1 Since CoQ10 is a powerful antioxidant, it may be able to prevent the growth of cancer cells single-handedly.

There were some animal and laboratory studies conducted to test the effectiveness of CoQ10. Most of these laboratory studies aimed to identify the chemical structure and physiology of CoQ10 in the body. Based on animal studies, CoQ10 dramatically  improved the immune system; hence, enabling the body to fight certain types of infection, as well as cancer. Another animal study reveled that CoQ10 effectively  protect the heart muscle from cell damage caused by the anticancer drug called doxorubicin. Additional animal and laboratory studies determined that analogs of CoQ10  inhibited the growth of tumor cells. 2

Consequently, researchers investigated the effect of CoQ10 in human cancer patients. CoQ10 was tested as a protective agent among cancer patients who were taking the anticancer drug, doxorubicin. Doxorubicin is an anthracycline drug which is said to induce cardiac toxicity by interfering with the energy-generating biochemical reactions of the heart muscle’s mitochondria. The mitochondrion are considered to be the cell’s powerhouse, giving energy to the entire body system. Results showed that cardiac toxicity was lessened with CoQ10 supplementation.

Based on a study in Denmark, 32 women afflicted with breast cancer were given a nutritional supplement program consisting of vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids and CoQ10 along with their primary treatment. Results of the study showed that the participants used fewer painkillers in their treatment and they didn’t lose weight. It was also reported that there were six patients who showed signs of tumor regression and all participants survived at least two years after their treatment. However, this study was not well-designed in that it didn’t have a comparison group. Therefore, it is not clearly understood whether the cause of tumor regression was as a result of the implementation of CoQ10. 3

Another study was performed in Canada to ascertain the effects of a combination of supplements, including CoQ10, among 90 women with breast cancer. The women in this study were given high doses of vitamins, minerals, and CoQ10 along with their standard treatment. When their condition was compared with 180 women who were not taking the high doses of combination supplements there was no significant statistical evidence pointing to the singular effectiveness of CoQ10 as an anti-cancer agent. 3  Nevertheless, the above human studies did suggest that CoQ10 plays an important role against cancer when combined with other supplements.

Vitamin C Tricks Cancer Tumors into Killing Themselves

Lead author Dr. Lewis Cantley and his team learned that amounts of vitamin C equivalent to what you might find in about 300 oranges is enough to impair the growth of both KRAS and BRAF gene-mutated colorectal tumors. This army of antioxidants literally enters the malignant cells, prompting an attack response marked by so much oxidative stress that the cells burn out and die.

And they do this in a rather interesting way that was previously inexplicable by science. Rather than attack cancer cells directly, vitamin C compounds appear to convert into another oxidized substance known as dehydroascorbic acid, or DHA. The DHA tricks cancer cells into accepting it for entry. Only once it gains access, this DHA is converted back into ascorbic acid (a type of vitamin C), causing cancer cells to essentially commit suicide.

“The current study reveals that DHA acts as a Trojan horse,” reports Medical News Today. “Once inside, natural antioxidants in the cancer cell attempt to convert the DHA back to ascorbic acid; in the process, these antioxidants are depleted, and the cell dies from oxidative stress.”

Linus Pauling was Right: Intravenous Vitamin C Cancer Therapy is the Way to Go

This is great news for cancer patients, as it presents potential new options for longevity and survival that conventional medicine simply can’t offer. But there’s just one problem… the amounts of vitamin C needed to obtain these amazing therapeutic benefits can’t be obtained from basic oral consumption of vitamin C. This is because the human body is only capable of assimilating so much of this nutrient at one time into the bloodstream.

This is where the groundbreaking work of the late Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling, a biochemist from Oregon State University, comes full circle. Pauling was among the first within the scientific disciplines to flesh out vitamin C’s many potential uses in modern medicine. This included its effectiveness as an intravenous treatment for cancer and various other major health conditions.

As it turns out, intravenous administration of vitamin C delivers far more of this important nutrient into the bloodstream than oral consumption, bombarding affected tissues and cells with disease-eradicating doses of this powerful, natural medicine. Pauling and his colleagues first pioneered this technique by administering it to more than 1,000 cancer patients, with incredible success.

Despite facing a constant tide of ridicule and slander from his less progressive colleagues, Pauling forged ahead. They laid the groundwork for what is now considered by many forward thinkers in the medical profession to be the gold standard for high-dose vitamin C therapeutics as a viable treatment for chronic and degenerative disease.

“[Ewan Cameron] and Pauling found that vitamin C helped cancer patients live about four times longer than cancer patients not given vitamin C,” writes Dr. Ronald Hoffman of the Hoffman Center in New York City, a clinic that utilizes high-dose, intravenous vitamin C drips as part of its progressive cancer treatment protocols.

How Intravenous Vitamin C Cancer Therapy Works

This isn’t to say that taking vitamin C orally is of no beneficial effect. To the contrary, high-dose oral intake of vitamin C at tapered doses (Dr. Hoffman says blood levels “max out” at about 500 milligrams (mg) doses) can help maximize your body’s immune system and aid in tissue repair. But when it comes to effectively treating cancer, intravenous administration is the only way to go.

Bypassing the body’s digestive buffers allows intravenous vitamin C to spur the production of hydrogen peroxide deep within bodily tissues. And with the help of disease-fighting white blood cells, this “peroxide-mediated” vitamin C, as Dr. Hoffman puts it, performs unique and key functions in the targeting and eradication of cancer cells wherever they might be lurking in the body.

Even the National Cancer Institute (NCI) is onboard with the science behind IV vitamin    C therapy. It admits, based on laboratory studies, that vitamin C is capable of helping to slow the growth of cancer cells in the prostate,  pancreas,  liver,  and colon. Both animal and human studies have also shown that IV vitamin C therapy can help block tumor growth and improve patient quality of life.

“IV vitamin C, when administered by a trained, experienced physician, is safe and well-tolerated, even at doses as high as 100,000 mg (100 grams) per day,” notes Dr. Hoffman. “Proper blood tests must be done to ensure that it is well-tolerated, and the patient must be monitored. Doses must be gradually adjusted upward.”

My advice if you currently don’t have cancer is to up your oral intake of vitamin C for prevention purposes. Citrus fruits are great for this, but “superfoods” like camu camu berry and acerola cherry are even better. Camu camu is said to have some of the highest natural,  food-based levels of vitamin C − upwards of  2 grams of vitamin C per 100 grams of fruit!

If you or someone you love does have cancer, you may wish to investigate the merits of high-dose, IV vitamin C therapy as a possible cancer treatment option.

Vitamin D, a steroid hormone that influences virtually every cell in your body, is easily  one of nature’s most potent cancer fighters. Receptors that respond to vitamin D have been found in nearly every type of human cell, from your bones to your brain.

Your organs can convert the vitamin D in your bloodstream into calcitriol, which is the hormonal or activated version of vitamin D. Your organs then use it to repair damage, including that from cancer cells.

Vitamin D is actually able to enter cancer cells and trigger apoptosis or cancer cell death. When JoEllen Welsh, a researcher with the State University of New York at Albany, injected a potent form of vitamin D into human breast cancer cells, half of them shriveled up and died within days!

The vitamin D worked as well at killing cancer cells as the toxic breast cancer drug Tamoxifen, without any of the detrimental side effects and at a tiny fraction of the cost.

Many cancer treatments cost hundreds of thousands of dollars for a course of therapies and most are well in the five-figure cost range. You can actually get perfect vitamin D levels for free if you had access to sunshine in the sub tropics year round, but even if you purchased oral supplements, a year’s worth of treatment would be well under $100.

In mice, too, cancer tumors shrank by more than 50 percent, and some altogether disappeared, when vitamin D was injected.

These findings add to the growing knowledge that vitamin D is a key player in cancer treatment and prevention. If you want to see for yourself, you can browse through over 800 references showing vitamin D’s effectiveness for cancer here.

Cancer’s Silver Bullet?

Intake of vitamin D3 and calcium could potentially prevent 58,000 new cases of breast cancer and 49,000 new cases of colorectal cancer annually in the United States and Canada, according to a complex computer prediction model.

This model also predicted that 75 percent of deaths from these cancers could be prevented with adequate intake of vitamin D3 and calcium.

Theories linking vitamin D to certain cancers have been tested and confirmed in more than 200 epidemiological studies, and understanding of its physiological basis stems from more than 2,500 laboratory studies, according to epidemiologist Cedric Garland, DrPH, professor of family and preventive medicine at the UC San Diego School of Medicine.

Dr. Garland is widely regarded as the leading epidemiologist on vitamin D and its relation to health. He led one of the latest studies on vitamin D for cancer prevention and proposed a new model of cancer development — dubbed DINOMIT– that is centered on a loss of cancer cells’ ability to stick together.

The model is a departure from the older model of cancer development, which centers on genetic mutations as the earliest driving forces behind cancer. According to Dr. Garland:

“The first event in cancer is loss of communication among cells due to, among other things, low vitamin D and calcium levels. In this new model, we propose that this loss may play a key role in cancer by disrupting the communication between cells that is essential to healthy cell turnover, allowing more aggressive cancer cells to take over.”

Vitamin D May Help Prevent 2 Million Cancer Deaths a Year!

Earlier studies have shown that optimizing your vitamin D levels could help you to prevent at least 16 different types of cancer including pancreatic, lung, ovarian, prostate, and skin cancers. But now we’re starting to see more evidence that the type of cancer in question may not be all that important, because vitamin D appears to play a key role in the development of ALL types of cancer!

Vitamin D’s protective effect against cancer works in multiple ways, including:

• Increasing the self-destruction of mutated cells (which, if allowed to replicate, could lead to cancer)

• Reducing the spread and reproduction of cancer cells

• Causing cells to become differentiated (cancer cells often lack differentiation)

• Reducing the growth of new blood vessels from pre-existing ones, which is a step in the transition of dormant tumors turning cancerous

A study by Dr. William Grant, Ph.D., internationally recognized research scientist and vitamin D expert, found that about 30 percent of cancer deaths — which amounts to 2 million worldwide and 200,000 in the United States — could be prevented each year with higher levels of vitamin D!

How to Use Vitamin D to Lower Your Cancer Risk

Making sure that your vitamin D levels are optimized is one of the simplest, yet most profound, things you can do to protect your health. It will likely be many decades before health policy catches up to what the evidence has already revealed, and widespread recommendations for increased sunlight exposure and vitamin D levels become the norm.

But you don’t have to wait, as you can optimize your levels right now.

The ideal way to optimize your vitamin D level is by exposing your skin to appropriate amounts of sunlight on large areas of your skin. Unfortunately for most of you there simply isn’t enough sun exposure where you live for half of the year or more

However, even when the sun is shining many people are modern-day cavemen and spend the majority of the day inside at work or in your home. Not many of you are regularly out in the sun.

You typically need enough sun exposure to turn your skin the lightest shade of pink. If you have enough skin exposed you will produce about 20,000 units of vitamin D. Exposures any longer than turning your skin the lightest pink will not produce any additional vitamin D and may potentially lead to premature skin aging and increase your risk of skin cancers (so don’t overdo it).

If you struggle with getting enough sun exposure during certain parts of the year, I also advise using a safe tanning bed (one that has the harmful emissions shielded) to have your own body produce vitamin D naturally.

A third option is taking a high-quality vitamin D supplement. You’ll only want to supplement with natural vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol), which is human vitamin D. Do NOT use the synthetic and highly inferior vitamin D2.

A Reminder Why You Should Not Take Cod Liver Oil to Get Your Vitamin D

A few years ago, I changed my recommendation on sources of vitamin D. I previously I recommended cod liver oil as a dietary supplement to support healthy vitamin D levels. However, based on more recent findings, I have updated my recommendations regarding cod liver oil, as it may not serve you as well as previously believed.

My previous recommendation was based on the fact that cod liver oil contains vitamins D and A in addition to healthy omega-3 fats. These vitamins are essential for most everyone who cannot get regular sun exposure year-round.

But more recent research has discovered that the ratios of these two vitamins may be of paramount importance in order to extract optimal health benefits, and unfortunately, modern cod liver oil does not supply these vitamins in healthy ratios to each other.

A new study in the British Medical Journal found that vitamin A, even in relatively low amounts, appears to thwart vitamin D’s association with reduced rates of cancer, in this case colon cancer.

As reported by the Vitamin D Council, the study shows that the benefits of vitamin D are almost entirely negated in those with the highest vitamin A intake. This is the largest study to date confirming vitamin A can impair vitamin D’s beneficial effects.

So in addition to not getting your vitamin D from cod liver oil, you should typically avoid synthetic vitamin A supplements along with your vitamin D either, as it appears to seriously negate its benefits.

How Much Vitamin D Do You Need?

Based on the most recent research, the current recommendation for dosage via oral supplementation is 35 IU’s of vitamin D per pound of body weight.

So for a child weighing 40 pounds, the recommended average dose would be 1,400 IU’s daily, and for a 170-pound adult, the dose would be nearly 6,000 IU’s.

Vitamin D Dose Recommendations
Age Dosage
Below 5 35 units per pound per day
Age 5 – 10 2500 units
Age 18 – 30 5000 units
Pregnant Women 5000 units
There is no way to know if the above recommendations are correct. The ONLY way to know is to test your blood. You might need 4-5 times the amount recommended above. Ideally your blood level of 25 OH D should be 60ng/ml.

However, it’s important to realize that vitamin D requirements are highly individual, as your vitamin D status is dependent on numerous factors, such as the color of your skin, your location, and how much sunshine you’re exposed to on a regular basis.

So, although these recommendations may put you closer to the ballpark     of what most people likely need, it is simply impossible to make a blanket recommendation that will cover everyone’s needs.

The only way to determine the correct dose is to get your blood tested          since there are so many variables that influence your vitamin D status. I recommend using Lab Corp in the U.S. Getting the correct test is the first step in this process, as there are TWO vitamin D tests currently being offered: 1,25(OH)D and 25(OH)D. The correct test your doctor needs to order is 25(OH)D, also called 25-hydroxyvitamin D, which is the better marker of overall D status. This is the marker that is most strongly associated with overall health.

Optimal Vitamin D Levels Explained

The “normal” 25-hydroxyvitamin D lab range is between 20-56 ng/ml. As you can see in the chart below, this conventional range is really a sign of deficiency, and is too broad to be ideal.

In fact, your vitamin D level should not be below 32 ng/ml, and any levels below 20 ng/ml are considered serious deficiency states, increasing your risk of cancer and autoimmune diseases like multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis, just to name a few.

The OPTIMAL value that you’re looking for is 50-65 ng/ml.

This range applies for everyone: children, adolescents, adults and seniors.


Evaluation of Potassium Values in a Cancer Patient Population

Beverly C. Handy, MD, MS, Yu Shen, PhD, MS

Agents known or believed to be carcinogenic decrease the concentration of potassium and increase the concentration of sodium in the cells. Anti-carcinogenic agents have the opposite effect. In all cases where we have information on an agent’s carcinogenicity or anti-carcinogenicity and on that agent’s effects on cellular potassium and sodium concentrations the above relationships have been found to be true. Dietary carcinogenic agents studied include sodium, cadmium, fat, cholesterol, calories, and alcohol; dietary anticarcinogenic agents include potassium, vitamins A, C, and D, selenium, and fiber.
 The effect of calcium intake is less clear as that effect depends on the concentrations on sodium and potassium. Not only dietary agents but also other carcinogenic and anticarcinogenic agents work in the same way. The cancer-causing drug dimethylhydrazine increases sodium and decreases potassium in the cells, whereas, for example, indomethacin, an anticarcinogen, has the opposite effect. In aging potassium leaves the cells, sodium enters them, and the rates of cancer increase. Patients with hyperkalemic diseases (Parkinson, Addison) have reduced cancer rates, and patients with hypokalemic diseases (alcoholism, obesity, stress) have increased cancer rates.

Abstract and Introduction

  • Potassium imbalances are potentially life-threatening, consequently, values found outside of the normal range will typically invoke immediate therapeutic action, and      a detailed search for an underlying cause.
  • A wide variety of clinical conditions are associated with aberrant potassium metabolism, and patients with cancer are at particular risk for both those found in     the general population, as well as those that are tumor- or treatment-related.
  • It is important to recognize that factitious, or pseudohyperkalemia, an in vitro phenomenon that does not reflect the true status of the patient, is not uncommon        in patients with cancer,  a consequence of marked leukocytosis or thrombocytosis associated with some malignancies or secondary to therapy.

Disturbances of potassium metabolism, if left untreated, can have potentially life-threatening consequences. Symptoms, which are generally cardiac and neuromuscular     in nature, tend to occur as values become increasingly out of the normal range. Clinical conditions associated with such electrolyte imbalances in the general population are common, and include renal failure from various causes, side effects of medications, disturbances of acid-base balance, and endocrine disorders.

Patients with cancer are at risk for electrolyte disturbances from these chronic disorders   as well as those that are tumor — or cancer therapy-related.   These include tumor lysis syndrome, chemotherapy side effects, and tumors producing ectopic hormone. Given the relatively increased risk, and subsequent close monitoring for electrolyte abnormalities, it is important to recognize that factitious, or pseudohyperkalemia, is not uncommon in this patient population. Failure to recognize this in vitro phenomenon can lead to unnecessary and potentially harmful interventions.

Psuedohyperkalemia can be diagnosed when the serum potassium exceeds that obtained from plasma by more than 0.4 mmol/L. It is typically seen when there is marked leukocytosis (often greater than 100 x 109L-1) or thrombocytosis (frequently greater than 1,000 x 109L-1). Proposed mechanisms include in vitro release from the unusually large mass of platelets or leukocytes during the clotting process  and an abnormal fragility of neoplastic leukocytes or platelets.

Because the clotting process is involved, plasma potassium values, which can more closely reflect the true status of the patient, can be within the normal range even when those obtained from serum appear to be lethal.

When it occurs, this effect is roughly proportional to the severity of the thromboctyosis or leukocytosis, and serum results frequently normalize with resolution of the high counts.

As such, it has been reported most frequently in acute and chronic leukemias, and myeloproliferative disorders such as myelofibrosis and polycythemia vera. It has also been reported to occur occasionally as a secondary complication with solid tumors, and less commonly, in benign reactive conditions.  Be careful of electrolyte imbalances  http://news.cancerconnect.com/electrolyte-imbalance/

Although there is no evidence that vitamin B12 alone reduces the risk of breast cancer, population studies have shown that women who get more folate in their diet have lower risk of breast cancer. Vitamin B12 works with folate in the body, so it may help reduce breast cancer risk. Another preliminary study suggested that postmenopausal women who had the lowest amounts of B12 in their diet had an increased risk for breast cancer.

So what´s the connection with cancer?

A number of research studies covering cancers such as colon, stomach or breast have linked the disease to lowered B-12 levels. (For example – Cho, Sang-Woon; Nutrition Review 57 – ´Women with breast cancer have lowered B-12 levels´).

But the issue is not only that B-12 directly, or through its stimulation of some third party like folic acid, might somehow cause cancer. A second issue is that orthodox and some complementary cancer treatments actually can make matters worse.

For example, it is now becoming clear that extracting the B-12 molecule from our foods is difficult without the help of certain Beneficial Bactteria in the intestine. Low levels of Beneficial Bacteria have been proven in Clinical Trials to reduce vitamin B-12 production and absorption. Unfortunately estimates suggest as many as 70 per cent of the adult UK population already have an imbalance of intestinal flora due to chlorinated water, antibiotics, lack of whole foods in the diet, too much salt and alcohol etc.

However chemotherapy, radiotherapy and surgery all employ drugs and antibiotics which can worsen the imbalance and further reduce the digestion and absorption of vitamin B-12. In this case the medical mantra of ´just eat 5 helpings of fruit and vegetables per day´, could be rubbish, if you cannot release the goodness. Supplementation in the short term with vitamin B-12 and other B vitamins like folic acid seems essential. To restore assimilation from your foods in the longer term, supplementation with multi-strain probiotics seems equally important. You can read more about Beneficial Bacteria by clicking here.

Sadly, the whole orthiodox treatment programme for cancer in the UK, ignores all the research and clinical trials in this area, resulting in a greatly worsened state of healthy gut bacteria, underproduction of essential vitamins, and increasing levels of toxins (like nitrosamines, heavy metals and oestrogenic products) the good bacteria help chelate and excrete these toxins too).

According to the authors of ESSIAC ESSENTIALS [p. 45], the following reactions may occur when treating cancer that demonstrate how Essiac works:

  1. a)  swelling–occurs when metastasised cells gather into the primary tumour.
  2. b) cottage cheese effect–resembling curds and clear liquid, occurs as the cancer breaks up and discharges from either the body orifices or from localised cysts or swellings.  A jelly-like substance can also be discharged or coughed up from the lungs.
  3. c) more frequent passing of urine/defecation and other inexplicable discharges–occuring as the body detoxifies.  If the symptoms are severe, with related nausea and pain, stop taking the formula for a few days until all the symptoms have subsided.  When you start drinking it again, take half an ounce every other day, gradually resuming the original dosage.  Remember that all diseases have a life cycle and a rhythm of their own, so follow your own judgement according to what your body is telling you about the dosage it needs.
  4. d) aching ‘on site’ and headaches, linked to the detoxification process, have been noted as sometimes occurring when taking Essiac after surgery.  Treat as for (c) and drink more water to flush out toxins from the body.
  5. e) fever or chills–sometimes occurring when the Essiac starts working directly on the cancerous cells.


The Truth about ´Vitamin´ B-17

Separating B-17 Myth From Reality

Amygdalin or laetrile? B-17 as a cancer ´cure´ is one of the most controversial subjects in ´Alternative cancer medicine´. Is there research to support it as an alternative cancer treatment? Is there research to support it as a complementary therapy? Is there research to support B-17 as a cure for cancer? Here we bring you one of the most comprehensive and accurate reviews on the Internet today (Written by Editor, Chris Woollams, M.A. Oxon, Biochemistry).

The controversy was re-opened in October 2014 when researchers (Makarevic et al; PLOSone) showed that natural B-17 (amygdalin) dose-dependently reduced growth and proliferation of cancer cells in vitro (See Cancer Watch – Click Here).

Controversy was furthered in May 2016, when the Food Standards Authority (FSA) in the UK talked about banning the sale of Apricot Kernels. So, a Government that puts a proven class A carcinogen (fluoride) in our water supplies is going to ban a food they don´t even correctly understand – they say, like many ignorants, that 30 of them ´contain cyanide´. Do they understand that for years people have eaten foods like marzipan in cakes. It was made from Apricot Kernels. UK nurses were even told to eat an apricot, then break the nut and eat the pip for health reasons, although I am going back 65 years to when my mother was a nurse.

B-17: Laetrile is not the same as Amygdalin

Firstly, let´s get one thing straight: Beware the articles that talk of eating pips and seeds and call the active ingredient Laetrile. The writers are making a simple, but fundamental error. How many more will they make?

It is important to differentiate the use of natural amygdalin from Apricot Kernels, and Laetrile, which is a concentrated, synthetic drug.

But, when it comes to B-17, confusion exists everywhere and absolute rubbish is often talked, even from supposedly ´top´ websites.

A Survivor Mindset

Image may contain: 5 people, people smiling, child

  For Lisa Lobsitz Ravel, she has the ability to recover from hardship with multi times having the ability to bounce back. Once having been given her last rite, twice being in a coma and also experiencing organ failure.  The time she worked in hospice was helpful      in her life.

I was born sick … pneumonia always … battled asthma my entire childhood … had spinal meningitis, ruptured main artery, blah ~ blah ~ blah before I was 22 … then all hell broke loose and never ended. If you want to talk trials and tribulation of life all the while raising two children one at age 20 and the other at 23.
    Then  On June 9, 2009,  at the age 42,  while alone,  suffered a debilitating stroke & paralysis requiring 24 hr fulltime care. I had been symptomatic with an erratic heartbeat for quite some time,  BUT BECAUSE  I was YOUNG,  FEMALE  & LOOKED HEALTHY.
  I did not fit the medical community criteria of a person about to have a stroke.  My concerns instead were discounted and my worries ignored. It was even suggested I find        a less stressful job .. Right up to that fateful day.

   While in Intensive Care, the Doctors found a defect & profound hole in the wall of the  left & upper right chambers that would require open heart surgery to repair. But I wasn’t   a candidate until I showed improvement.

That took 4 excruciating long months of enormous difficulty and hard work while battling a weakening heart just to get to a minimum baseline. I had to have enough strength and ability to recover from the post trauma in order to undergo the surgery. But my heart was failing and I was getting weaker by the day, so on October 15, 2009, I underwent Open Heart Surgery to repair the chamber and successfully close the hole. Then once again, started back on that long road towards recovery & another chance at Life.

In 2011, had 6 plates in her neck and 5 in her shoulder… Lisa knows set backs and is always determined to bounce back from any and all.  Also in her past Lisa had  3 bouts      of e-coli, meningitis and was also hospitalized… for a week in 2007 ….with debilitating Fibromyalgia.  And care gave 24/7 for my husband and dad beginning in 2011.

 ❣Mine is a Happy ending, I am Grateful to have survived .. Far too many do not.

❤ FACT: Heart Disease & Stroke KILL 1 in 3 WOMEN EACH YEAR,                   yet it is 80% Preventable.

❣ PLEASE INSIST ON BEING TESTED if you ever have any unusual heart symptoms that scare or concern you.

❤ FEBRUARY  is  National Heart Month Kim Poulsen-Smith

Her mindset: it has been what it has been …. they say what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. What times like these do …. is makes you more resilient  but not tougher. What times like these did for Lisa is made her kinder, more compassionate, giving and forgiving and loving deeper without reservations, while enjoying life to its fullest and the time you do have… more.

The key to survival is acceptance: accepting the fact that you were given that hand dealt you for a reason. That in such a traumatic catastrophic life event, such inspiring Living changing strength can be gained, with such a story so special, and your arduous struggle too regain your health. And the reason I became a pilot is to start a non profit connecting those dying with family members.

Lisa you are blessed, your story is going too help other people!  💗💗

We take all of our experiences and realize they’re meant to be … good bad and indifferent. Could have cave in and died or used the IV to live,  strengthen and fly.  Also my keys to survival are Giving to others … not accepting a Dx … seeing a life ahead of you requiring and needing your presence 🙂

  Lisa being the trooper she is recently became a pilot  And the reason I became a pilot     is to start a non profit connecting those dying with family members. AS she still enjoys Snow & water skiing. Sports that others may have gave up, however, I know within Lisa there is no quit. You’re a warrior,  trailblazer and The world is lucky to have you in it. 👏🏻🎉🍾        Image result for happy valentines day images🎶🍾

MUM Battling Terminal Cancer

Image may contain: outdoor, nature and water

For a beautiful soul, speak words of kindness.

For inner grace, seek out the good in people.

For courage, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.

Some things will never change. The loving care of human beings will never          become obsolete.

 People, even more than things, need to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed          and redeemed.

As you grow older, you discover that you have two hands:

 one for helping yourself, the other for helping others. ~ Sam Levenson …

  • Danielle Hughes, from Hunts Cross was diagnosed the second time in 2015 –            three years after undergoing a double mastectomy.


The mum-of-two found a lump under her arm and was told by doctors her cancer            had reached stage four – meaning it is incurable but can be managed – leaving her           with a life expectancy of five to 10 years.

The 32-year-old, who has tumours in her lungs, is undergoing treatment by the NHS –    but in a bid to make sure she’d be around for her children.  Also visited a cancer clinic        in Blankenburg, Germany for alternative therapies.

Danielle is hoping to raise £100,000 for several visits to the cancer clinic in Blankenburg, GermanyHer most recent diagnosis came while she was pregnant with her second child, daughter Sienna, meaning she had to be induced earlier than expected.

She said: “I found a lump under my arm and went to the hospital and found the cancer     is back in my lymph-node under my arm, and a nodule on my pectoral muscle.

“I had to be induced to have my baby girl Sienna a few weeks earlier than expected.         I’ve had surgery to remove both of thoese but a CT and PET scan has picked up bumps    on the lining of my lung,  a lump behind my sternum which means it’s now stage four.

“I can’t even think of leaving my two children, Louis who’s seven and Sieanna who’s one, without a mum. I can’t bear to think about it.

“I was researching online and I came across quite a few people who have beaten cancer using alternative methods. I’ve changed my diets and I’m taking lots of different supplements.”

Danielle undergoing a vitamin and mineral infusion via IV

After researching the clinic in Germany, Danielle’s friends and family held a               charity night and raised enough money to pay for a visit to the German clinic.

“So many people in the community have come together, it’s really touching.                           I had some great results that my two main tumours shrunk and I’m so happy.”

“On my visit to the clinic I met a woman who has been going there for 20 years,              once a year, so I took that as a really good sign.

While not endorsed by the NHS, Danielle claims that the treatments – magnetic field therapy, thermotherapy (which uses heat to target cancer cells) and vitamin injections – have shrunk her two main tumours but now wants further visits which she hopes could extend her life expectancy.

The former support worker has now started a Go Fund Me page in order to raise              the money for several return visits – which could cost in excess of £10,000 each.

She said: “I’m on hormore medication from the NHS, and with that it keeps my cancer stable and I might live for five to 10 years, and I’m going to continue to take that.”

Danielle was diagnosed with breast cancer for the first time in 2012 and had to undergo     a double mastectomy and re-construction.

“I was always under the impression that all of my tumours are on the right side. I found out that some of the nodules are on the left side. I’ve only been concentrating on my right side when having the treatments so my plan now is to carry on with treatments in Germany and treat both sides.

“I’m hoping to go there possible in March or April.”

The Cancer Whisperer

Image result for sophie sabbage

This is Sophie Sabbage’s Story!!!!

On 13th October 2014 I was diagnosed with Stage 4 ‘terminal’ cancer – multiple tumours in my lungs, lymph nodes, bones and brain. I was 48 years old.

Eight years previously I married John, the love of my life, and our daughter, who I waited many years to have and conceived against considerable odds, was nearly five years old when we received this news. To be faced with leaving her at such a young age is a source of unimaginable grief and longing. I’ve been told I’m going to die, but I want to live, to raise her, to stay here. I want more time.

Within days of diagnosis the survival plan began, the grasping at a future I wasn’t ready to relinquish and the instinctive need to keep it quiet for as long as possible. To hold it close.

There is no more direct an encounter with your vulnerability than being told your time is up – and even then we tend to talk about the disease, but not our experience of having the disease (let alone of facing death).

My doctors ask me how my body feels, but not what my heart feels. Stoic silence hangs  like a fog ….over the waiting room…. at my local oncology centre where a diverse group of people sit with the same disease, the same fears and dreams and pangs of sorrow, keeping themselves to themselves. Not connecting. Not talking. Not encouraging one another.    Not wailing in unison for the fading light.

This is the culture I live in: don’t talk about it, except in private; keep the pain and fear in. I have worked in the field of personal development for over twenty years and know what not talking about it costs. That which is unnamed and unacknowledged within us festers into dis-ease – mental, spiritual, emotional and, yes, physical. Keeping the pain and fear  in also keeps the joy and wonder out. Silence it for long enough and it can consume you.

So, three months after my diagnosis, I am starting this blog. I have been cautioned by some who care about me not to place this most private, personal journey in this most public, impersonal domain.   https://www.sophiesabbage.com/treatments/

But here’s the thing. Vulnerability is the gateway to healing and the cornerstone of wellness. It’s the most accurate indicator of my humanity, authenticity and ability to      love and be loved. It’s how I know I’m really here. To refuse vulnerability when my           life is on the line would be to refuse my best chance at feeling fully alive in whatever       time I have left.

We need to talk about cancer. We need to talk about suffering. We need to talk about      our deep down fear of dying, chiseled by a culture that celebrates all things young and shiny and perfectly formed. We need to grieve the thousand losses, big and small, that we’ve collected since childhood and silenced for safekeeping. We need to become emotionally and spiritually well.

I am under no illusions about the gravity of my situation, but I am not willing to accept  the limited options available in the UK or the cautious mindset and legal system that prevent doctors being able to experiment and innovate with terminally ill patients.

So I am doing all I can to integrate the best of orthodox and complementary treatments   to maximum effect.

In a very short space of time I have felt the life force leaving my body at a terrifying       pace and return with surprising force.  Strangely,  as I write this,  I have never felt more alive. I am harvesting wellness from ‘terminal’ illness – wellness of mind, heart, spirit and, for now at least, of body.  I am discovering  it is possible  to be well even  when you feel ill and to live boldly even when – perhaps especially when – you’re told you’re going to die.

One way or another this story will have a juicy ending and I hope telling it will make a difference to others. Meantime my task is to inhabit the rarefied space between my fierce will to live and necessary willingness to die,  the place where I am determined however not expectant, at cause but not in control.  And in the midst of all this uncertainty  I have been certain about one thing from the beginning – that I have cancer, but cancer does not have me.

Mostly I want to greet this challenge as I have tried to greet all those that came before – with fire in my eyes, faith in my pocket and my heart emblazoned on my sleeve.

Experiencing a loss of health so severe that it impairs your ability to work, be a Mom         or even function in society is completely devastating. We know that despair first hand       &  it has radically changed our lives, both personally and professionally. Unfortunately, although most practitioners are well meaning, they do not have the knowledge and training necessary to help patients truly heal an autoimmune diagnosis. It’s especially heartbreaking when children suffer and are similarly given medication as a solution and told there is no real path to healing.
 As Moms ourselves, we understand that the health of our children is vital to our own.        Our mission is to empower and educate women to learn to trust in their bodies, connect with their spirit and reclaim the joy and freedom that is given to each and every one of us. We’ve both been where you are and have no doubt in your ability to completely heal and regain control of your life. We look forward to being here for you every step of the way.

Welcome! We are two gals who’ve taken our lives back from the prison of chronic illness. Not too long ago, we were told by the medical community that we’d have to         take medication for life while constantly managing an autoimmune diagnosis.

We have successfully defied that prognosis and are both living happy, full; disease free lives with a passion to help others do the same. We believe that God created an amazing    & miraculous body that when given what it needs, knows exactly how to heal itself. After spending thousands of dollars on testing, doctors and protocols, bwe finally healed using the information from Anthony William,” Medical Medium.” You can read more of our story and learn about our coaching services at www.reclaimersofhealth.com.

This group was created to be a community of support, resources and a place to keep each other motivated and inspired while healing using the specific recommendations provided by Anthony/Spirit.

In order to keep this group focused and on the right path, we ask that you please read     the book  “Medical Medium”,  before posting or commenting with recommendations,  please refrain  from giving advice  not supported by the book.  Feel free to ask questions, post about protocol friendly foods and meal ideas and most of all, encourage each other! We are group focused on positivity, hope and true healing. We’re so glad you’ve found us <3

Fear also serves to block the action of love, which is Flow from higher densities/realms.
It the primary way the negatives use to discourage people coming together to form community. The opposite of Love is not hate, it is fear; an Emotion that results in IMbalance. If humans should be considered as atoms in the fractal structure of the universe, we can say that humanity is unstable collectively.
Why? Because the ones of the fear are afraid to lose their position and they keep a double agenda to screw themselves to the chair as long as possible, meanwhile they do something to cover the appearances for the divine.
 The situation on this planet is hilarious and dramatic at the same time, it’s the manifestation of the dichotomy of duality in full expression. https://anniecoops.com/2017/02/05/the-significance-and-impact-of-living-with-fear/
It’s like a truck driver pretending to pilot an airplane, ignoring the training in the flight simulator. It’s difficult for the ego mind controlling the world to become spiritually conscious, depending of the divine presence to learn spirituality. Apparently the communication between divine and human is still a handicap for humanity, especially if the apprentice side, still dwells in the comfort zone of the cognitive dissonance.

WATCH – Reba McEntire’s DEFIES Trump-Haters with THIS Amazing New Song

Reba McEntire is one of the best country singers known to the music industry. She just released a new song which sends a message to liberals everywhere. “Cause we’re still worth saving, we can’t go on like this and live like this, we can’t love like this, we gotta give this world back to God,” Reba sang in her new song “Back to God.”
🙏🏻 💖😘🙏🏻💖😘🙏🏻

This is an incredibly powerful message that needs to be heard everywhere, now more   than ever.  We have so much hate in the country because of the last election. Americans   are burning flags,  dishonoring our military and police officers, rioting in the streets, and wishing death on our newly elected President. Clearly, we do need to get this country back to God.

But, liberals today are “too cool” to believe in God. They don’t want to “conform” to one belief. And yet, most Liberals do believe the same thing: that God does not exist and that there is nothing after death.

That’s fine, no one is going to force you to be religious! But, why discriminate against Christians? And, why deny that there are any good lessons to be learned from faith? Something happen in the Holy Land over 2000 years ago as the Landmarks remain… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4XFRvjbSemI

The liberals shout out facts of the universe, as if we don’t know them, and ask us to explain the way the Bible fits into it. Well, the Bible was written thousands of years ago by people who didn’t understand the universe half as well as we do today, so they are going to be things in the Bible that don’t make a lot of sense.

There are also a lot of things in the Bible that make more sense than any philosophy.      I’ve heard a Liberal argue! The Bible advocates  peace, love, and forgiveness. It puts an emphasis on life, family,  community,  something our divided nation desperately needs.

Thankfully, Donald Trump is going to be bringing God back into this country. He made     it okay to say ‘Merry Christmas’ again. He’s put the Lord back in our Pledge of Allegiance. This is fitting. After all, this country was built on the foundation of faith.  And we need to go back to our roots.

This new respect for faith won’t change the beliefs of the liberals, and that’s okay, because it will strengthen the core values of this country.  I believe that,  in their hearts,  our lost Liberals are aching for the kind of values my faith gives me. When our faith erodes, these values erode, and that spells disaster for the country.

As Reba says, “You gotta get down on your knees, believe, fold your hands and beg and plead, you gotta keep on praying.” With a little more faith, and a little more respect for faith, the turmoil and division in this country will die down. This country HOPEFULLY  will unite under our President. Credit:http://www.proud-patriots.com/reba-mcentires-amazing-new-song-will-destroy-every-single-trump-hater-in-america-video/

My heart overflows with love 💞 feeling very blessed!!!!

What do you think about Reba’s Song and how it pertains to America right now?

IN OUR Darkest Moment

Image result for it's during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light

A Cancer Battle Plan:

When I first started researching cancer back in March 2006. Some of the first links I ran across on the internet were from Carl O. Helvie, Ty BollingerChris Wark, Ann E. Fonfa, Elyn Jacobs, Dr. Van Merkle and HOW  Dr. Robert Nagourney,  Dr. James W. Forsythe, MD’s and also how there own views changed my views at the time about chemotherapy       & cancer.   Plus Dr. Josh Axe, Natural News
 What was interesting to me back in 2006 is why these view points weren’t met with more esteem by conventional medicine. One should consider testing as a more accurate attempt at pin pointing the right treatment through the Navarro Test or Greece Test!   The Greece test result may inform you to which supplements and /0r drugs will work for your body chemistry…
During the last 20 years, Ty has lost 7 close family members due to cancer. He has also       devoted the last decade of his life to medical research to find alternative cancer treatments and cures so YOU and YOUR family don’t have to experience the same tragedy.  Ty  has summarized this voluminous amount of research on natural cancer treatments in his book, Cancer-Step Outside the Box. – See more at: http://www.cancertruth.net    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ibbKJhJnO9A 

Ann Fonfa: Natural Breast Cancer Survivor Since ’93

Please tell us your name, what type of cancer you had, and when you were diagnosed:  Ann E. Fonfa, Jan 1993 breast cancer, age 44

Describe your experience with conventional doctors and treatments:
Was suffering from multiple chemical sensitivity and ill often from exposures –          usually had to stay in bed for days at a time.

Had an amazingly (I thought) unsympathetic oncologist who suggested chemo and told  me it didn’t matter when I explained my problems with reactions to smells, and chemicals.

I walked out and did not return. Refused radiation, then hormonal treatment.                  But I consented to lots of small surgeries as I had five years of local recurrence               (even after mastectomy).

What alternative therapies did you do and which ones helped you the most?
Started with metabolic enzyme therapy, changed eating to all organic, no meat, chicken   or turkey. Occasional fish, no dairy but yogurt rarely.

Tried 714X (Nessons), had applied kinesiology, acupuncture, many supplements.          Went to Gerson Therapy clinic in Mexico.

Never developed metastatic disease even after 5 years of tumors on the left side.

Used Maitake Mushroom D-Fraction Extract and high-dose vit A which both also    reduced tumors. Eventually began taking (April 1999 – August 2001) Chinese herbs     from Dr. George Wong. Never got another tumor, chemical sensitivity symptom     changed immediately, and intensity reduced by (my estimate) 60%.

What books, products, and supplements do you recommend?
I founded the Annie Appleseed Project, online since 1999. We’ve linked to thousands        of useful pages, posted information for everyone regardless of what they are doing – complementary and alternative therapies.



What are the Right Treatment Options!!!


Treatment options are truly unique to each patient’s case. Most diseases are the result   of    a long process of living in an unhealthy (unbalanced) state. While the resulting disease will be in a single category,  such as cancer,  the process that caused that disease to develop is unique to each person.  Biological Medicine focuses  on interrupting the disease process and restoring the body’s ability to heal itself. Our treatment options are unique to each patient’s case.

A ‘one size fits all’ treatment does not work any better than a ‘one drug cures all’ treatment.

Biological Medicine & Treatment Options

Our diagnosis does not focus solely on the disease; we study the internal biological  process that is unique to each person. Biological Medicine doesn’t treat cancer (or any chronic disease), it treats the unhealthy state that has allowed the cancer to survive in     the body. The American Center for Biological Medicine uses many different forms of treatment.

Every day most patients receive a standard protocol of Biological Medicine treatments as well as treatments specific to their condition.

The following is a list of the Treatment Options available to our patients:

Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) is a non-invasive breast cancer (stage 0). … With DCIS, the abnormal cells have not left the milk ducts to invade nearby breast tissue’

If you have DCIS, experts such as Dr Samuel Epstein, a world authority on cancer, favour the watch-and-wait approach, then frequent monitoring; only consider treatment if it turns into true cancer. If it does, many alternative treatments are highly successful. The following are recommended by the US charity People Against Cancer (www.peopleagainstcancer.com):

A strict wholefood, unprocessed diet * Exclude sugary and fatty foods,                              dairy products and wheat

* Include an intensive nutritional-supplement programme: high-dose vitamin C, beta-carotene, vitamin B-complex, selenium, zinc, coenzyme Q10, fish oils and vitamin B17 (apricot kernels).

An intensive detoxification programme * Eliminate mercury from amalgam fillings         and from anywhere else in the body. Most cancer patients have high levels of this        heavy metal

* Coffee enemas, which will stimulate the liver to excrete toxins.

Gentler anticancer therapies * Short-term high-dose hormone blockers. Dr Axel Weber,   in Bavaria, gives the hormone-blocker busarelin at 20-40 times the usual dosage for no longer than 12 weeks. This is one of the more promising regimes, says People Against Cancer

* Intravenous hydrogen peroxide

* High-dose vitamin C treatment offers at least a 16-fold increase in life expectancy            (J Ortho Med, 1990; 5: 143-4)

* Heat therapy (hyperthermia) applies heat to the breast-cancer tumour using highly focused radiowaves, raising the tumour temperature to about 44 degrees C. This kills cancerous cells, but not healthy ones

* Infusions of laetrile (the anticancer compound derived from apricot kernels) and/or melatonin (an antioestrogen)

* Ozone therapy enriches the patient’s blood with ozone to ‘activate’ the red and white cells, stimulating the immune system to cure itself

* THX/Thymex-L, a thymus extract believed to boost the immune system

* Low-dose interleukin-2, an immune booster, with or without antihormone therapy

* Immune augmentation therapy, in which anticancer ‘immune complexes’,            harvested from the blood of healthy donors, are infused into the cancer patient.

* Modern medicine knows the potency of Herbs. The new chemo called Yondelis. Delivered  once every 21 days and you go home with the machine and it pumped               the chemo in you for 24 hours straight. It’s supposed to be the latest and greatest

new up-and-coming thing out there for sarcomas is made from sea cucumbers.

Herbs That Can Fight Breast Cancer,

Says Dartmouth Speaker…

(U-WIRE) HANOVER, N.H. — Each year, approximately 192,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer, and 40,000 die from the disease. Conventional treatments aren’t helping. Is there a way to decrease this number?

Dr. George Wong, the Director of Preventive Oncology Research for the Strang Cancer Prevention Center, says there is. He uses herbal remedies in the fight against breast cancer.

Wong immigrated from Hong Kong to the United States when he was 19. He earned his undergraduate degree from Rice University in 1969 and his doctorate from Harvard Medical School in 1978.

Since 1982, Wong, a full professor at the Cornell Medical School, has put lecturing on hold and has devoted his time to breast cancer research at Strang, a non-profit organization affiliated with the Cornell Medical Center

Wong’s cancer prevention program uses Chinese herbs of a “nutritious nature” to strengthen the defense system, improve appetite and soothe nausea, among other things.

Those herbs include ginseng, estragulas, rashi mushrooms and dong guai, among many others.

Due to U.S. law and potential liability, Wong does not use herbs as the primary form of treatment. Rather, he works with oncologists and administers the herbs to patients who are also undergoing chemotherapy and radiation. Located in the same place as the Cornell Medical Center, Wong’s remedies are integrated with those of conventional medicine.

Patients who go to Wong are thus patients elsewhere and have to pay extra for the Strang program. In comparison with chemotherapy and radiation fees, however, the base rate of $100 per month is nominal.

Those who see Wong are usually referrals, although not from his co-workers in the Cornell Medical Center. His colleagues, says Wong, are largely ignorant of the benefits of herbal remedies and are fearful that the treatments would be ineffective and they would be held responsible.

The majority of the referrals come from workers at SHARE, a breast cancer support group located in the tri-state area. Due to the same fear of liability, insurance companies do not cover Wong’s program. As a result, Strang loses money. To Wong, this financial loss is secondary to cancer prevention and the establishment of his program. “I’d rather sacrifice profit for a program I can build up,” he said.

Wong notes that due to the recent hype over herbs such as gingko biloba, there is “more awareness as compared with two years ago.” Yet patients are still cautious.

Wong has no off-hand statistics regarding the effectiveness of herbal remedies, in part because U.S. law does not allow the treatment of breast cancer through herbs alone. The majority  of scientific studies  on herbal treatment  are published outside of this country.  Wong points to the endurance of herbal remedies for 5,000 years in China as verification of their value. He notes also that instances of breast cancer were much higher in Japanese women in Hawaii versus those in Japan.

Wong discussed primary (pre-diagnosis) and secondary (post-treatment) prevention as well. He likened conventional Western cancer monitoring to roulette, saying that a patient goes to a doctor any number of times and is told that she doesn’t have cancer, but then one time, “you have it.”

In the way of primary prevention, Wong thus recommends herbs, noting that breast cancer prevention is “not only a physical prevention but a mental one as well.”

He cautions, though, that “when it comes to herbs, you have to be careful, because an herb might not be appropriate for a particular individual,” due to varying energy levels and different forms of stress.

Here’s what’s needed to survive cancer

To survive cancer, Jeannine said you need passion and purpose: “At the age of 24, as I faced my own mortality, I realized that it’s a gift to look at death as a way to awaken to life. I thought, ‘What do I want to do with my time? Why am I here? What’s most important to me?’ I realized I could make some changes and really awaken to life more fully. That’s how I try to live.”

Another panelist, Jonny Imerman, survived testicular cancer. He noticed that many cancer patients — adults and children — are without hope. Many of them receive few or no visits from friends or family. Because he has an encouraging story of survival, he started visiting these patients to talk to them, cheer them up, and encourage them. His enthusiasm for this ministry attracted other cancer survivors to join him.

His group is called “Imerman’s Angels.” Jonny tries to match his angels to patients who have the same kind of cancer. The best person to encourage a brain cancer patient, for example, is a brain cancer survivor.

The last panelist was Nancy Henry, who has had breast cancer for 10 years. At the age       of 52 she had two mastectomies,  but the surgery didn’t get rid of the lung lesions. She    has lived for the last seven years with stage four cancer, metastasized to the lungs. And    she appears to be in good health!

In other words, Nancy is in the state known as “stable disease.” Her immune system and her cancer are in a Mexican standoff, with neither gaining the upper hand. People can live for years in a similar state of stable disease, and it can be considered a victory over cancer as long as cancer doesn’t get the upper hand.

Nancy uses Dr. Wong’s Chinese herbs and has also been helped by an anthroposophical doctor who gives her mistletoe extract, which she injects herself.  The top cancer doctors   in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland are influenced by anthroposophical medicine.  For    a description of the most reputable clinics, including contact information, see my Special Report German Cancer Breakthrough.

Nancy also uses Rife technology, and practically swears by the Model A Rife machine by JW Labs, which she calls the “real deal.” According to the theory, when Rife technology is attuned to the frequency of a pathogen, such as a cancer cell, it can “vibrate” the pathogen to death in the same way that an opera singer can shatter glass by matching its frequency. Each type of microbe — each strain of virus or bacteria — has its own Rife frequency that will vibrate it to death.

There are number of competing Rife machines, as the original invention from the 1930s was reportedly destroyed after the inventor, Royal Rife, was subjected to fierce persecution by the government and the American Medical Association. Strange as the theory sound, many experienced cancer survivors and crusaders swear by it.

Nancy explained to the audience that she “dialogues” with her tumors. She has learned to love them while not approving of their behavior. And she tells her tumors the stark truth: “If I go, you go too!”

Stay tuned for Part II of this report, coming in the next issue: “Here’s what you do for the ‘ugly cancers’.”

The Globalization of Traditional Chinese Medicine and its Integration with Conventional Medical Treatments

Posted by DUJS / In News / May 8, 2012

This past Thursday, Dr. George Y. C. Wong gave the keynote address on the globalization of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), a colloquium sponsored by the department of Asian & Middle Eastern Languages & Literatures. Wong is a fourth generation TCM practitioner and senior research scientist at the Beth Israel Medical Center in New York City who specializes in cancer. He presented the history of TCM, a medical practice that has persisted for four thousand to five thousand years.

In explaining the underlying theories of TCM, Wong emphasized the connection between the mind and the body and the importance of categorizing symptoms through narratives.  Wong stated that TCM differentiated between external and internal causes of disease.   The six external causes were wind, cold, heat, damp, dryness, and summer heat. He       also said that there are two internal causes, which can be divided between emotional      and endogenous disorders. He listed the seven categories of emotional imbalances as unrestrained happiness, anger, anxiety, pensiveness, grief, fear and fright.

Also the endogenous causes were improper diet, excessive physical challenge, and injuries.

In contrast to Western Medicine, Wong said, TCM provides a more individualized method of diagnosis. The four methods of diagnosis include taking the medical data, smell and sound, visual inspection, especially an in depth inspection of the tongue, and pulse diagnosis of the patient. He went on to explain the pulse uniquely identifies the individual and pulse recognition takes years to master. The TCM belief is that energy flows in channels throughout the body, and there are three positions on each arm that correspond to the major organ systems: heart, liver, digestive system, lung, kidney, focused on the adrenal gland, and the vital gate, through which flows vital energy. Wong said that there are twenty-seven patterns reflecting either inherent or abnormal energies, in which multiple patterns overlap.

He ascribed TCM with having a very complex and logical system of diagnosis. The TCM practitioner identifies the person’s diagnostic type according to the eight principles of diagnosis: problems with interior or exterior and yin and yang, problems within the nature of hot or cold, and problems with weak or strong constitution. Then, the practitioner would assign herbs according to the five tastes and five colors: sour and cyan for the liver, bitter and red for the heart, sweet and yellow for the digestive system, spicy and white for the lung, and salty and black for the kidney. Wong said the characteristic of the herbs have an affinity for the body parts, texture and cooling and warming abilities. The types of TCM therapy include acupuncture, massage therapy, herbal medicine and nutrition therapy, he said.

Wong went on to describe the negative aspects of Chinese medicine, saying that that the success and practice of TCM are hard to assess by scientific means, that diagnosis and treatment are subjective and lastly that it is hard to obtain good quality herbs since the herbs are indigenous to certain areas. He also stated that TCM is more effective in the treatment and prevention of chronic illnesses since the process of improvement is very slow and steady.

In his own research in breast cancer at the Strang Cancer Prevention Center, which closed in 2008, Wong studied the effects of natural breast cancer prevention with the levels of estrogen in the body. In estrogen-responsive breast cancer, the Western medical approach is to prescribe tamoxifen to pre-menopausal women and an aromatase inhibitor to menopausal women to inhibit the role of estrogen in the tumorous breast tissue. According to Wong, both these medications potentially have severe long-term side effects.


Also, in the body, endogenous estrogen estradiol (E2) is dangerous, while estrone (E1) and estriol (E3) are healthy. The main estrogen metabolites, 2-hydroxyestrone (2-OH1) is protective in the body, while 16alpha hydroxyestrone (16a-OH1) is damaging, and the ratio between the two is a biomarker for breast cancer risk. Using TCM methods as treatment, Wong’s research group found that lyceum barbarum, a goji berry, regulates 2-OH1/16alpha-OH1 and detoxifies E2 into E3 in his publication Nutrition and Cancer in 2009. He also found similar results with cornus officinalis in his Molecular Medicine Reports in 2012.

Wong explained that it is routine in China to integrate TCM into conventional cancer treatment. Researchers in San Anselmo, California published Integrative Cancer Therapies in 2011 showing that TCM in addition to supplements to conventional treatment significantly improved survival in a ten-year follow-up on 193 colon cancer patients at different stages. The same research term published that TCM cancer treatments and supplements for 235 stage-3 and stage-4 lung cancer patients significantly improved survival over a ten-year follow-up period.

Wong argued that the integration of TCM with Western Medicine would reduce medication requirements and minimize side effects. He stated that TCM is effective in treating cardiovascular disease, diabetes and its complications, viral Hepatitis B and C, lung diseases, digestive issues, autoimmune disorders, mental issues, and the health concerns specific to men and women. In his own work with cancer, Wong explained that TCM is not powerful enough to bring about a remission, but can slow down the progress by helping to regulate the body while aiding the patient in maintaining a reasonable performance status, especially with the reduction of side effects of chemotherapy and radiation.

As for the integration of TCM with Western Medicine, Wong advised that both TCM and Western Medicine practitioners be patient in explaining the nature of their respective medical treatments to each other, keep each other informed of the patient’s progress, and be cautious while keeping an open mind of alternative medical treatments.

A Pilgrimage Without End

Image result for albert einstein love quotes
When life was at its best Cherie was derailed and found herself in the emergency room,     at age 44,  with debilitating pain and anemia,  that turned out to be Multiple Myeloma,      a cancer of the plasma cells, which is incurable and often terminal. From this dis`ease Cherie found inner peace and details how in the easy to read large print book Cherie has written entitled,  ‘A Pilgrimage Without End.’
In this book Cherie’s moving story talks about how one woman took on cancer in the healthiest ways possible.  Cherie sheds light through her own personal epiphany  that healed her soul.
For each awaken soul, the world has another voice and leader to help heal our planet. Through NEver EVer Giving Up.  LOve & LIght,  HOpe,  FAith,                    and True Life Laughter  💚💚💚  
When you start to turn the corner, even just a little bit,
you see a whole new view!

 Good bye Cancer,
I am writing you this letter today because I want to thank you. I want to thank you for the many lessons you have taught me. Thank you for allowing me to see that I have the best life ever!
You taught me that no matter what comes my way, I can handle it. It is because of you that I realized that by helping others I am helping myself.
It is because of you that I know my life truly matters. Though you had a grip on my body, you couldn’t steal my soul.
You allowed me to let go of the people that weren’t healthy in my life. This gave me lots of space for people that could see the best in me. You did not cripple my Love, you allowed me to feel it even more fully. Though you tried to shatter my Hope, you failed in that I have more faith now than I ever had.
By allowing me to look death straight in the eyes, you took away my fear of death and replaced it with a deep Inner Peace.
My friendships are stronger than ever and there is not a soul in this world that I do not consider my friend and teacher.
You gave me a cause to fight for, a fight for freedom of choice, for all sick people in all states, to have the right to fight for their lives in any way they see fit, without a government to take that right away.
So cancer, thank you for all your lessons. I have paid attention to them and I have learned from them. I have walked away with way more than I started with, and it is with gratitude that I bid you farewell. You are no longer needed in this body of mine. You are no longer needed in my life.

What is the right thing to do in a messed up world?

This was the question I pose to Cherie !!!!

 Cherie stated: hmmmm, I think to be kind, tolerant, forgiving, not too judgmental if at all, helping each other, lifting others up instead of pushing them down. Truly listening without assuming. Not labeling each other, you know, silly stuff I teach my children. My hubby can be quite difficult at times, but after 15 years this rubbing off on him as well and the change is beautiful for all of us, especially him. He is really receiving the fruits of his labor and it is beautiful to watch 💖😘🙏🏻
Happiness is in the Heart, not the circumstances :>):>)

How You May Ask Yourself. Maybe we should listen to Einstein,
pretty smart guy wouldn’t you say 😉.

A letter from Albert Einstein to his daughter: on The Universal Force of Love

In the late 1980s, Lieserl, the daughter of the famous genius, donated 1,400 letters, written by Einstein, to the Hebrew University, with orders not to publish their contents until two decades after his death. This is one of them, for Lieserl Einstein.

“When I proposed the theory of relativity, very few understood me, and what I will reveal now to transmit to mankind will also collide with the misunderstanding and prejudice in the world.

I ask you to guard the letters as long as necessary, years, decades, until society is advanced enough to accept what I will explain below.

There is an extremely powerful force that, so far, science has not found a formal explanation to. It is a force that includes and governs all others, and is even behind         any phenomenon operating in the universe and has not yet been identified by us.           This universal force is LOVE.

When scientists looked for a unified theory of the universe they forgot the most powerful unseen force. Love is Light, that enlightens those who give and receive it. Love is gravity, because it makes some people feel attracted to others. Love is power, because it multiplies the best we have, and allows humanity not to be extinguished in their blind selfishness. Love unfolds and reveals. For love we live and die. Love is God and God is Love.

This force explains everything and gives meaning to life. This is the variable that we have ignored for too long, maybe because we are afraid of love because it is the only energy in the universe that man has not learned to drive at will.

To give visibility to love, I made a simple substitution in my most famous equation. If instead of E = mc2, we accept that the energy to heal the world can be obtained through love multiplied by the speed of light squared, we arrive at the conclusion that love is the most powerful force there is, because it has no limits.

After the failure of humanity in the use and control of the other forces of the universe that have turned against us, it is urgent that we nourish ourselves with another kind of energy…

If we want our species to survive, if we are to find meaning in life, if we want to save        the world and every sentient being that inhabits it, love is the one and only answer.

Perhaps we are not yet ready to make a bomb of love, a device powerful enough to    entirely destroy the hate, selfishness and greed that devastate the planet.

However, each individual carries within them a small but powerful generator of love whose energy is waiting to be released.

When we learn to give and receive this universal energy, dear Lieserl, we will have affirmed that love conquers all, is able to transcend everything and anything, because    love is the quintessence of life.

I deeply regret not having been able to express what is in my heart, which has quietly beaten for you all my life. Maybe it’s too late to apologize, but as time is relative, I need     to tell you that I love you and thanks to you I have reached the ultimate answer! “.

Your father,
Albert Einstein

Healing Lung Cancer Naturally with Dr. Carl O Helvie, RN, Dr. PH with Physical,  Mental  and Spiritual Aspects  of the Body as well the Environmental, Relationship and Political Components     of Health. http://www.chrisbeatcancer.com/carl-helvie-longest-living-lung-cancer-survivor/

Dr Carl O. Helvie is a Registered Nurse with a Masters Degree in Public Health Nursing from the University of California, a Masters Degree in Public Health and Wellness and a Doctorate in Public Health and Wellness both from Johns Hopkins University and continued Post Doctoral study in the Divinity School at Duke University.

Given just 6 months to live by conventional medicine when diagnosed—in 1975,                   Carl O. Helvie subsequently used all natural holistic interventions including laetrile,  pancreatic enzymes,  digestive aids,  therapeutic  doses of vitamins,  minerals,  and supplements and a vegan type diet.

Carl also used prayer, meditation, visualization, affirmations, service to others and additional mental and spiritual interventions. Following a modified lifestyle plan after overcoming cancer, I never had a recurrence and at age 84 I am free of chronic diseases   for 41 years and prescribed medications.


“It’s been 38 years since I overcame cancer and I have never had a reoccurrence.”


Dr. Carl O Helvie has 60+ years experience as a nurse practitioner, educator, author      and researcher, during which time, he has helped thousands of patients to improve their health.  He has taught more than 4,000 graduate  and undergraduate nursing students.   Dr. Helvie retired from academia in 2000.

In this interview Dr. Carl Helvie shares his innate wisdom about healing and specifics about:

  • how he healed from lung cancer
  • the recommended cancer diet which he followed
  • what supplements he took while actively healing
  • the foods he eats now to maintain his health and prevent reoccurrence
  • the importance of raw food
  • what percentage of your diet as raw, is ideal for healing
  • what supplement he believes was crucial in reducing his PSA from 12 to under four in just four months, helping him to avoid Prostate Cancer
  • nutrients that help Laetrile to be more effective at killing cancer cells

“Wait a minute, I don’t make snap decisions, I go home, I pray about it,          I make a rational decision and I may or I may not be back.”


“If I make that decision, then I am responsible for my life.”


“I looked at man, physical, mental, spiritual, I also looked at the environment, I looked at relationships and I looked at politics because all of these things influence health.”


“I think a lot of people really need more raw fruit and vegetables than they get.”


“It’s been 38 years since I overcome cancer and I have never had a reoccurrence.”


“It just seemed natural to use the natural approach, but most of my support system didn’t agree with me.”


“It was wonderful to have Ursula as a support system because she supported my decision, and everyone else, even though they didn’t intend to, they were putting doubt in my mind.”


“I think the patient should decide what they want for their treatment, not the doctor, not the family, not anyone else.”


“It’s empowering to a person to be able to make their own decision about what they want and also to have the support      of people for that decision once it’s made.”


“I think we need to support people in their decision no matter, whether we agree with it or not.”
