Nov. 30, 2007 -- Working the night shift may cause cancer, according to a report published in The Lancet.
The report comes from a team of 44 scientists in 10 countries commissioned by the World Health Organization's International Agency on Cancer Research.
They report "limited" evidence of a connection between cancer and night shift work in people. That evidence included a higher rate of breast cancer in female nurses who work night shifts.
But those studies, which were observational, don't prove cause and effect. Many genetic and environmental factors affect cancer risk.
So the scientists also reviewed studies in which animals were exposed to light at night, disrupting the animals' so-called body clocks (circadian rhythm).
Those studies provided "sufficient evidence" of a connection between circadian rhythm disruption and cancer, states the report.
The scientists concluded that "shift work that involves circadian rhythm disruption is probably carcinogenic to humans," write Kurt Straif, MD, and colleagues.
They note that shift work may raise cancer risk by suppressing production of melatonin, a chemical involved in the circadian rhythm.
Straif works in Lyon, France, for IARC.
The scientists also concluded working as a painter is carcinogenic and that working as a firefighter is "possibly carcinogenic" due to on-the-job chemical exposure.

Can CT Scans Raise Cancer Risk?
Nov. 28, 2007 -- As many as 20 million adults and 1 million children in the U.S. receive unnecessary computed tomography (CT) scans each year, potentially causing thousands of excess cancers in decades to come, researchers say.
Writing in Wednesday's issue of The New England Journal of Medicine, the Columbia University researchers warned that the dramatic rise in CT usage to diagnose medical problems and screen for disease could pose a significant risk to public health.
Unlike conventional X-rays, which capture a single snapshot image, CT scanning generates a three-dimensional picture involving multiple X-ray images.
More than 62 million CT scans are performed annually in the U.S., up from only 3 million in 1980.
CT scans deliver far more radiation than conventional X-rays -- between 50 and 200 times as much, says David J. Brenner, PhD, of Columbia's Center for Radiological Research.
As a result, the average radiation dose people in the U.S. get has nearly doubled since 1980, he tells WebMD.
Based on current usage, Brenner and Columbia colleague Eric J. Hall, PhD, estimate that within two or three decades, 1.5% to 2% of all cancers in the U.S. will be caused by exposure to CT scans.
"This may be acceptable if it is clear that the benefits of CT outweigh the risk," Brenner says. "But we believe that a good number of scans being performed today are not really medically necessary and that many others could involve lower radiation doses."
Children are a special concern, he says, because they are much more sensitive to radiation exposure than adults and they have more years to develop radiation-related cancers.
Bomb Survivors and CT Risk
In a Tuesday news conference, Brenner and Hall said the dose of radiation delivered in one or two CT scans is roughly equivalent to doses received by atomic bomb survivors in Japan who were 2 miles away from the blast sites when the bombs hit.
Studies showing a rise in cancers among these survivors decades after the atomic blasts led to their estimate of risk among people having CT scans today.
American College of Radiology (ACR) Board of Chancellors chairman Arl Van Moore Jr., MD, acknowledges that the increase in CT usage may lead to more cancers. But he adds that it is impossible to quantify the risk based on the studies of Hiroshima and Nagasaki bomb survivors.
"You can't equate the radiation you get from CT to that from an atomic bomb," he says. "Saying that 2% of all cancers will be caused by CT scans is nothing but a guess at this point."
But Moore tells WebMD that the ACR is concerned about unnecessary radiation exposure from medical imaging.
In a position statement published earlier this year, an ACR task force acknowledged that the rapid growth of CT and other types of scanning may "result in an increased incidence of radiation-related cancer in the not-too-distant future."
Whole-body CT scanning is also being marketed to healthy people without symptoms or suspicion of disease as a proactive health care strategy, although this use is controversial.
The ACR does not endorse whole-body CT scanning for patients without symptoms, and the FDA notes that whole-body screening provides "uncertain benefit with the potential for some risk."
"We are at a sentinel event where medical exposure is now the biggest source of radiation exposure to the U.S. population," New Mexico radiologist Fred Mettler, MD, said at the news conference. "And we can expect this exposure to get much bigger when these screening applications kick in."
While the case for the use of CT to diagnose existing symptoms is much clearer, Brenner and Hall argue that CT scanning is still too widely used, especially in hospital ERs.
It is also common for patients to have duplicate CT scans performed for the same medical condition as they change doctors or hospitals, he adds. One solution to this would be to provide patients with a DVD of their CT scan to take with them from doctor to doctor.
"This is an easy fix, but it isn't being done," Brenner says.
Hall says the purpose of the new report is to raise awareness about the potential risks and not to scare anyone away from having a CT scan if they need one.
"It is clear that for patients with symptoms, CT is a wonderful diagnostic tool," he said. "What we are pushing for is to limit the use of CT to situations where it really is needed."

Testimonial: I cannot rave enough about TriHerba Salve. Within one week it removed numerous skin malignancies - DC Edmonds, WA
Testimonial: I've had cancer of the colon. I know for a fact that TriHerba Tonic has slowed down the growth. X-rays revealed this. I can't praise TriHerba Products enough - H.M. Sheridan, WY
Here are some other uses for TriHerba Black Salve and Black Tonic:
If You Have Cancer Or Are At Risk
Black Salve and Black Tonic contain natural herbs and enzymes known to neutralize carcinogens prior to their stimulating any tumor growth and preventing tumorous cells from multiplying once they have started.
Black Tonic is taken internally for virus related disorders and internal growths and works directly on the immune system acting as both a preventative and an immune booster. It generates purification of both blood and the body by inducing oxygen into the system and affected areas, thus helping to ward off any viruses or malignant growths both internally and externally. It appears that the herbs have the ability to remove unnatural and foreign substances from the body.
Testimonials reveal that Black Salve works effectively when applied topically on areas malignant, toxic or virus related. Sometimes it will turn red around the area of the tumor, mole, wart or sore, of whatever is being treated. This is a normal process and in the center it will be a whitish gray color, this means the salve is working. The salve penetrates and travels the area to its roots, killing all foreign matter and drawing it out. Sometimes the infected core itself will come out in one piece, or it may slough off on the bandage. It works differently on different types of malignancies, virus types or skin problems.
It has also been known to alleviate yeast infection (Candidas) in women, remove plaque from teeth and diseases from gums, and help alleviate colon problems.
The ingredients in the TriHerba Black Salve are as follows: Sheep Sorrel, Red Clover, Bloodroot, Chaparral, Graviola, Galangal, Zinc Chloride, Pine Tar, Emulsifying Wax, DMSO, Wintergreen Oil, Stearic Acid, Polysorbate 20, Glycerin, Olive Oil, Charcoal and Purified Water.
The ingredients in the The TriHerba Black Tonic are as follows: Sheep Sorrel, Red Clover, Graviola, Galangal, Bloodroot, Chaparral, Zinc Gluconate, 36% Alcohol and Purified Water.
These products are produced by a Canadian manufacturer that meets all the Health Canada Standards and the Food and Drug Administration's Good Manufacturing Practices.
TriHerba Black Salve is intended for external use and is available in a 1.3oz/40ml jar. For convenience, we also produce TriHerba Black Tonic for internal use which is available in a 3.4oz/100ml bottle. Many people use both products simultaneously depending on what the ailment is. Instructions for each or both are always shipped with product orders.

Surviving cancer and making it through cancer treatment are major accomplishments. Most, if not all, survivors find a new priority in life: keeping cancer from returning. The latest research suggests that exercise for cancer patients may help.
If you've made it through the rough road of cancer diagnosis and treatment, you’re probably thinking about what you can do to stay healthy. But just what is the best way to get fit, and maximize your long-term health? WebMD talked to the experts about the best exercise for cancer patients after treatment.
Exercise for Cancer Patients: Longer Life, Less Recurrence
There's abundant evidence that exercise and eating right can help prevent people from getting cancer. The latest information shows that exercise for cancer patients can also keep cancer from recurring.
"Several recent studies suggest that higher levels of physical activity are associated with a reduced risk of the cancer coming back, and a longer survival after a cancer diagnosis," said Kerry Courneya, PhD, professor and Canada Research Chair in Physical Activity and Cancer at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada.
In studies of several different cancers, being overweight after completing treatment was associated with shorter survival times and higher risk of cancer recurrence.
Women who exercise after completing breast cancer treatment live longer and have less recurrence, according to recent evidence. Colorectal cancer survivors who exercised lived longer than those who didn’t, two recent clinical trials showed.
"Clearly, any cancer survivor wants to do all they can" to prevent cancer recurrence, says Colleen Doyle, MS, RD, director of nutrition and physical activity for the American Cancer Society. "Surely some of their goals for healthy living should be around weight control" and exercise, she adds.
What experts suspected has now been proven. As a cancer survivor, exercising could help you live a longer life -- free from cancer.
Exercise for Cancer Patients: What's In It For Me?
The benefits of exercise for the general population are well-publicized. But what if you’re a cancer patient?
"Exercise has many of the same benefits for cancer survivors as it does for other adults," says Courneya. Some of these benefits include an increased level of fitness, greater muscle strength, leaner body mass, and less weight gain.
In other words, exercise for cancer patients can make you fitter, stronger, and thinner -- like anyone else who exercises.
Exercise can also:
- Improve mood.
- Boost self-confidence.
- Reduce fatigue.

|Cancer Strategy #5: A Weakened Immune System Leads To Cancer...
A Strong Immune System Seeks Out And Destroys Cancer Cells
For most of your life, the immune system has successfully dealt with cancer cells, killing them off as they developed. That's its job. For cancer to have developed in you, your immune system must have become worn out, ineffective and unable to deal with the cancer cells.
Thus it is vital in your battle against cancer to strengthen the immune system. Especially if you are getting medical treatments that wipe out the immune system, and make the body more acidic to boot.
Many natural supplements support the immune system. The trick is the find and use the ones that work the best, as it is easy to squander resources on products that won't get the job done. The other concern is to make sure you take enough. Cancer is not something to pussyfoot around with. Taking 5 to 10 times the normal supplemental amount seems to work best when using natural supplements.
As the immune system is so important in fighting cancer, many products will be mentioned in this section. They work on the immune system in slightly different ways so any or all of them can be used without duplicating their cancer fighting effects. Let's start with a few of the best.
As the immune system is so important in fighting cancer, many products will be mentioned in this section. They work on the immune system in slightly different ways so any or all of them can be used without duplicating their cancer fighting effects. Let's start with a few of the best.
Immune Power Herbal Formula
This tea is proving to be one of the top immune boosting, cancer fighting products we know of. Containing many more herbs than Essaic or even Medicine Man Tea, it is both anti-inflammatory and supportive of the immune system. A Ph.D. medical researcher specializing in cancer developed this tea by drawing on the best cancer fighting herbs from many cultures, including traditional Persian culture medicine. It is also supportive of digestive function, increasing assimilation of nutrients.
The herbs are organically grown and include: Dandelion Leaf, Rose Petal, Milfoil, Verbenia, Orange Peel, Hyssop, Red Raspberry Leaf, Angelica, Shavegrass, Ginseng, Star of Bethlehem, Sweet Violet, Cleavers, Red Clover, Burdock. One container supplies two cups a day for a month. Use up to 6 cups a day for advanced cancers.
Get Healthy Aloe MPS Boosts The Immune System, Improves Cellular Communication, Creates Tumor Necrosis Factor and more
Cancer cells are viewed by the immune system as non-self. As are viruses and other pathogens in our body. By increasing the ability of the cells to communicate with each other and with the immune system, the immune system may be better able to identify what is non-self, and get rid it.
One type of product that has proved to be so effective at helping the immune system do this, a new science has developed around it. The science of Glycobiology, which deals with the role of essential long chain carbohydrates in cellular communication.
To maintain a healthy body, cells must "talk" to each other. Their language is one of touch, written in saccharides (or simple sugars) on the cell surfaces. Like thousands of different "keys" projecting from the cell surface, they either unlock the required functions of the adjoining cell or not. If the right keys are available, the body functions smoothly. If not, it doesn't.
In March, 2001, Science Magazine dedicated virtually the entire magazine to the science of Glycobiology and the essential saccharides that make up these cellular communication keys.
The University of California, San Diego, announced the establishment of a Center for the further research and development of the Science of Glycobiology. And the President of the Royal Academy of Medicine in London, Dr. John Asford, said that "Sugars are going to be the molecules of the next decade."
Eclipse Magazine reviewed the results in Uganda where they are using these glyconutrients on AIDS and cancer patients and seeing remarkable results, and the child with Projeria (fast aging disease) who is experiencing reversal in his aging process once on glyconutrients.
The best source for these special, long chain carbohydrate molecules has proven to be properly processed aloe vera. One of the top researchers in the field, Dr. Danhof, gives some details on what it does. (These are Dr. Danhof's words based on his and other research.)
"The Aloe Vera MPS is a long chain sugar molecule composed of individual sugar molecules connected together in long linear chains. There is wide range in the size of the MPS molecule. The varying sizes determine their healing properties.
"1. Anti-inflammatory and Blood Sugar Normalization Small size molecules.
"2. Free Radical Scavenger Medium size molecules.
"3. Anti-Pathogenic Large size molecules.
"4. Immune System Enhancement Very large size molecules.The very large molecules are immune modulating, which has a powerful healing effect on AIDS, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, other chronic infections, multiple chemical exposure, cancer, heart disease, auto-immune diseases and many other immune system disorders. MPS is important with the ever-increasing number of infectious diseases that are gradually becoming resistant to antibiotics.
"The MPS molecule activates the Macrophage directly and through the liver to produce a cascade of healing effects: increases phagocytosis by the macrophage to engulf and destroy infected cells and damaged cells (the garbage eater in the body); increases interleukin and interferon levels in the body, which then increases the number and response of T-Cells and Monocytes; wound healing via fibroblast activity as well as dramatically increasing the growth of new cells and the anti-pathogenic response with viruses, bacteria, yeast fungus and amoebas.
"MPS also causes the body to produce tumor necrosis factor that destroys tumors by shutting off their blood supply."Dr. Danhof
Several small pharmaceutical companies are developing drugs using these long chain polysaccharides to fight cancer. Between them and the general research showing many cancer fighting benefits to taking aloe, there is a good amount of research on the use of aloe vera extract for fighting cancer.
Aloe MPS is the best aloe vera concentrate. Its manufacturer uses the right kind of processing to preserve all the active ingredients. Their testing shows no other Aloe product, whole leaf, from the gel or as a powder, contains as wide a range of stabilized muco polysaccharides as Aloe MPS.
When an aloe vera leaf is cut, the mineral salts and enzymes immediately starts breaking down the MPS molecules in it which reduces their effectiveness. The proprietary extraction process used in making Get Healthy Aloe MPS, involves freeze drying the gel into a powder, and eliminates the enzymes and mineral salts to prevent their destructive action. The mineral salts and enzymes in aloe can be irritating to the gut.
Aloe MPS contains high levels of active ingredients. Even the filler, larch tree powder, is beneficial. It acts as a pre-biotic nutrient feeding your friendly intestinal bacteria. And is a potent immune system enhancer too with independent research showing it is good for fighting cancer. Get Healthy Aloe MPS contains the complete MPS molecule intact. Its dalton weight goes up to over two million. These higher dalton weights, over one million, are necessary for effective immune system healing, bolstering and balancing the immune system cells, and for producing tumor necrosis factor.
Aloe MPS is taken as a loose powder mixed with water on an empty stomach in the morning. For health maintenance a quarter to half a measuring teaspoon a day is used, with an ounce lasting 4 to 8 months. For serious health concerns, usually 2 measuring teaspoons or scoops a day are used, with the large size container lasting a month. Some people use three times the amount, working through 3 bottles in a month's time.
Get Healthy Aloe 3X is a aloe vera concentrate that boosts the immune response threefold when taken with the regular Aloe MPS. Use it with the regular Aloe MPS. Take half as much of the 3X as the Aloe MPS. The 3X, when used with the regular Aloe MPS, is proven via scientific studies to increase immune system response by 300%. (Aloe 3X contains components of the galactomannan molecule that target the immune system.) The bottle is half the size of the large Aloe MPS bottle so you use one of each.
Two or three of each in a month would be a high therapeutic amount. Aloe vera in general and Get Healthy Aloe MPS in particular has a long history of being an exceptional immune system booster and cancer fighter.
Medicinal mushrooms have a long history of being some of the most potent cancer fighters. They are a source of beta glucans, polysaccarides, and other immune boosting phytonutrients that are important cancer killers. UltraImmune9 specifically targets and nutritionally supports optimum anti-cancer performance. It is based on a little known Chinese Medicine anti-cancer formulation, giving you a high concentration of nine established immune boosting mushrooms. This is a more advanced formula, and more powerful, then the older mushroom formulations like AHCC. These nine mushrooms have both historical and modern track records of proven performance, and provide a broad base of nutritional support for hard working immune systems. What follows is a brief summary of the medicinal and anti-cancer properties of each mushroom in UltraImmune9.
1) Trametes Versicolor or the Turkey Tail mushroom.
This mushroom has long been treasured in the East; in Japan it is known as kawaratake (mushroom by the river bank), and in China it is called Yun Zhi or Cloud Fungus. In Japan around 1965 a chemical engineer investigated this mushroom for its anticancer constituents after observing his neighbor's life-threatening cancer was cured after taking Cloud Fungus. This led to the discovery of PSK and later it's closely-related PSP (Polysaccharide-Peptide).
Decades of clinical experience indicate PSK is very gentle on cancer patients and works well for cancers. PSK significantly extended survival at five years or beyond in cancers of the stomach, colon-rectum, esophagus, nasopharynx, and lung (non-small cell types), and in a HLA B40-positive breast cancer subset. It's sister, PSP, in double-blind trials, significantly extended five-year survival in esophageal cancer. PSP significantly improved quality of life, provided pain relief, and enhanced immune status in 70-97 percent of patients with cancers of the stomach, esophagus, lung, ovary, and cervix.
PSK and PSP boosted immune cell production, ameliorated chemotherapy symptoms, and enhanced tumor infiltration by immune system cells.
2) Agaricus Blazei
With a high beta glucan content this mushroom assists in the production of interferon and interleukin which are potent in fighting cancer, especially in the uterus. Anti-tumor effects come from a range of polysaccharides including "beta/ alpha/ xylo/ galacto/ and protein glucan. And its steroids, nucleic acids, lipids and lectin have cancer inhibition properties. In Japan, intensive research done with guinea pigs showed that Agaricus Blazei blocks cancer development 99.4% and reverses growth in 90.0%.
3) Grifola Frondosus or Maitake Mushrooms
Along with Ganoderma lucidum (Reishi) and Lentinula Edodes (Shitake), this is one of the most thoroughly studied of the medicinal mushrooms. It is an extremely rich source of polysaccharides which stimulate the immune system in diverse ways including boosting T-cells and NK-cells. Extensive studies also verify its liver support efficacy.
4) Ganoderma Lucidum or Reishi Mushroom
Ganoderma lucidum is one of the most thoroughly documented mushrooms with extensive human trials verifying its highly effective pharmacological characteristics which include Anti-cancer tumor inhibition, Histamine inhibition, Antioxidant, anti-inflammation, anti-allergy activity. Research indicates that the polysaccharide beta-1, 3-D-glucan in Reishi boosts the immune system by raising the amount of macrophages T-cells. This has major implications for people suffering from AIDS and other immune system disorders. Nutritional support to boost immunity, fight cancer and heart disease, calm your nerves, and relieve allergies. No wonder Reishi is also called the mushroom of immortality.
5) Cordyceps Sinensis
Cordyceps Sinensis is one of the most versatile multi-purpose medicinal mushrooms, with quite extensive modern human and animal studies confirming its effectiveness. One study demonstrated that Cordyceps added significant enhancement of NK cell activity in normal individuals as well as in leukemia stricken individuals. Natural Cordyceps enhanced the NK cell activity of normal patients by 74% and increased the NK activity of leukemia patients by 400%. Similar improvements of NK cell activities was found in big melanoma cancer.
6) Lentinula Edodes or Shitake Mushroom
The shitake has been used since the Ming Dynasty to cure respiratory illnesses, liver trouble, exhaustion, and poor blood circulation. This mushroom has also shown potential for successful treatment of heart disease, cancer, and AIDS. Its two polysaccharide derivatives, Lentinen and LEM, have been extensively studied in Japan, and are officially approved as cancer therapy adjuncts by the Ministry of Health.
7) Polyporous Umbrellatus
Like many of the other of the medicinal mushrooms listed, it fights bacteria, inflammation, viruses, and benefits the immune system, the liver, and the respiratory system. It is renowned for its urinary tract benefits in particular, and is used for treatment of lung, gastric, cyst and cervical cancers.
8) Flammulina Velutipes or Winter Mushroom
The health benefits of Winter Mushroom include supporting liver and ulcer repair. Its anti-tumor activity is suggested in many studies including effects on proliferation, apoptosis and colony inhibition in human breast cancer cells.
9) Hericium Erinaceus or Lion's Mane
Lion's Mane has been traditionally used in both Japan and China for centuries. Recently, Japanese researchers have isolated a NGSF (Nerve Growth Stimulant Factor) from the mushroom that causes brain neurons to re-grow. This has important implications for helping to cure senility, neurological degradation, and increasing intelligence. It has been proven to help the digestive system and is used as a tonic for the nerves.
Studies in China proved that it is effective on "ulcers, inflammations, and tumors of the alimentary canal. Ingestion of this mushroom is said to have a remarkable effect in extending the life of cancer ridden patients. Ying (1987) reports that pills of this mushroom are used in the treatment of gastric and esophageal carcinoma."
Take up to 3 capsules 3 times a day, about 3 bottles for a month supply. This is the most advanced formulation we could find, significantly better than some of the older formulations like AHCC or MGN3.
This remarkable cancer fighting supplement is derived from the Pacific Yew Tree which has a long history of use as a cancer fighter. YewImmune5 is a new and unique all natural supplement made from the needles of the Pacific Yew tree. These chlorophyll laden needles have additional nutrient benefits over the bark alone. The number 5 in YewImmune5 represents the five body systems this little known nutritional powerhouse supports: 1. Endocrine 2. Cardiovascular 3. Respiratory 4. Digestive 5. Immune.
Yew has been used for centuries to treat many different ailments, and has a long history of medicinal use. North Americans referred to the Pacific Yew as “Chief of the Forest” because of its incredible and miraculous healing powers when utilized for strength and endurance. Salves made from the Pacific Yew needles were used to treat skin tumors and diseases, bronchitis and respiratory problems. Pioneers brewed the needles and bark to relieve colds, fevers, headaches, stomach, kidney and lung problems as well as for sore swollen joints from arthritis and rheumatism.
YewImmune5 has wide ranging benefits - with the proof to back it up. It is one of the most important cancer fighting supplements. With 180 capsules per bottle. Use a couple of bottles a month for fighting cancer.
Fulvic Acid Concentrate and Humic Acid Concentrate
Fulvic acid and Humic acid are often considered new miracle nutrients that balance and energize cells. Acting as a "free-radical" scavenger, fulvic acid supplies vital electrolytes, enhances and transports nutrients, catalyzes enzyme reactions, increases assimilation, stimulates metabolism, chelates and changes inorganic minerals into organically complex minerals. It modifies the damage of toxic compounds such as heavy metals and free radicals, and improves absorption into cells as it increases the permeability of digestive, circulatory, and cell membranes.
We suggest them here because this combination does a very good job of killing cancer cells and reducing tumor size. There are several reasons why it does so. It kills pathogens, and oftentimes it is pathgens in cells that cause them to turn cancerous. Get rid of the pathogens and the cell can normalize and die a natural cell death. Fulvic and Humic acids are also known to help repair cellular DNA. This action would also normalize cancer cells, allowing them to die a natural death. They have immune boosting activity that also plays a part in their ability to reduce tumor size. Take 2 ounces a day of each of them when fighting cancer. That is 2 quart bottles of each a month.
Medicine Man Tea
This tea supports oxygenation, detoxification and the immune system. It is made by a Native American healer, and works in a similar fashion to, but with different ingredients - and is more effective then, the well know cancer fighting tea from Canada, Essaic Tea. On the internet Essaic Tea is sometimes referred to as Medicine Man tea, but this is not Essaic tea. The woman who introcuded Essaic tea to the world wrote in her biography she was not going to disclose the complete formulation, and she did not.
Medicine Man Tea works on all cancers. It has one of the more remarkable stories we have heard on a cancer fighting supplement.
For over 20 years it has been used for cancer by several thousand people. Even the head of oncology at a hospital uses the tea and has some of his patients use it. It's developer hasn't heard of anyone taking the tea who died of cancer. It supports the fight against cancer 24 ways:
One bag makes two gallons and the first time you use the tea it lasts for 6 weeks as you take 2 ounces 3 times a day before meals until gone. Then get another bag, and for the next batch you can reduce the amount to 1 ounce 3 times a day. For a maintenance program once the cancer has been gone for several months, which is important to do, take 1 ounce twice a day. The exact ingredients are a tribal secret as the formula has been handed down for generations. They are grown in Florida swamps and specially processed. And work amazingly well.
One man with stage 4 cancer was in the hospital because his kidneys were failing, at 47% efficiency, with elevated calcium levels. Less than a week after starting on this tea, his kidneys were at 100% and his blood work was perfect.
In 2001 a retired NASA scientist, after a series of chemotherapy treatments, was sent home to die with cancer spread throughout his body in many of his organs. He decided to try the tea after being told it would make him feel better. In four months he went in for a checkup to see how he was doing, and was found to be cancer free. He has continued to take the tea to make sure it doesn't come back. At 83 years old, he is now able to run 10 miles 3 times a week.
U-Fn 35% U-Fucoidan Extract
Research done in Japan and in Europe discovered the ability of another polysaccharide from seaweed to fight cancer, U-Fucoidan. It causes cancer cells to self-destruct. Within 72 hours in the test tube. Turns out it is also excellent for dealing with an enlarged and painful prostate.
U-fucoidan is a polysaccharide found mainly in brown seaweed. Kombu (Laminaria japonica) is distinctively rich in this substance. Brown seaweed has been found continuously to be the most beneficial among other seaweeds and plants.
In clinical studies U-fucoidan was administered to cancer cells in test tubes where they died within 72 hours. This process is known as apoptosis; the destruction of cells from within due to activation by the digestive enzymes contained in the cells themselves. Interestingly, Okinawa, Japan has the lowest cancer mortality rate in Japan, and it is where kombu is predominantly consumed.
U-Fn is concentrated brown seaweed extract. It has 35% u-fucoidan and a natural balance of vitamins and minerals from the seaweed. U-Fn is also a strong antioxidant.
Health Benefits: Clinical studies have shown that fucoidan can...
Here's more information on u-fucoidan from a press release, published June 17, 1996 - from Biomedical Research Laboratories titled:
The article explains that this self-destruct phenomenon is known as apoptosis, as distinguished from necrosis, which is the death of cells directly brought about by external stimuli such as poisonous substances and physical damage to the cell. Apoptosis is brought about by a mechanism that is programmed into the natural makeup of cells. Apoptosis may be said to be a natural means through which living organisms manage to eliminate harmful cells from their systems.
While the Japanese have been using U-Fucoidan extracts to fight cancer for a number of years now, a concentration of this magnitude, 35%, dramatically reduces the amount of capsules that need to be taken to get enough U-Fucoidan to effectively fight cancer.
Even with a concentrated brown algae extract like Modifilan, the difference is significant. 4 capsules of U-Fn supplies as much U-Fucoidan as 45 capsules of Modifilan. Reports are that improvements in cancer blood tests often show up within 2 weeks, and tumor reductions within 2 months, when using 6 capsules a day.
Leonid Gordin, M.D. Cambridge, MA on the benefits of U-Fucoidan.
With its extremely high concentration of U-Fucoidan activated by synergistic ingredients from the seaweed, U-Fn is a premier cancer fighting product.
It is best taken before or with breakfast. Two capsules are taken per day for normal supplementation. For cancer, 6 capsules per day are recommended which takes three bottles for a month's supply.
Immuno C3 is an essential oil formula developed by a medical team in Canada composed of licensed medical doctors and PhD researchers. They were trying to and succeeded in creating a combination of essential oils that would significantly enhance immune system effectiveness.
Over several years, this Canadian medical team developed a formulation of essential oils for treating diseases of the immune system. First they tested to discover which essential oils worked the best individually. Then they refined their formula by determining the ratio of essential oils to each other that worked the best. And then they tested it in a long term study.
When used in exact concentrations, Vervain, Cedar, Angelica and Pine are the four essential oils they found that worked the best for stimulating the immune system. In addition, this medical research team determined that by utilizing a special technology to activate the water based solution, the formula was much more effective.
Their clinical study showed this formulation to be a potent stimulant of CD8+ lymphocytes. And thus may be effective against immune diseases as it is most supportive of the immune system response. It optimizes the way in which immune system cells communicate their chemical messages to each other. Thus there is a much greater capacity for the immune system to deal more effectively with cancer.
It contains the correct proprietary blend of:
Oil of Vervain
The oil vervain has a calming effect, relieving spasms (especially of the digestive system) while reducing fever. It acts as a diuretic and expectorant, while increasing topical blood flow. It has a toning effect on the nerves, and is strongly antiseptic.
Oil of Pine
The oil of pine has often been used for colds, coughing, flu, rheumatism, sinusitis, general respiratory problems in general, urinary tract disease and loss of memory.
Oil of Angelica
The oil of Angelica has been used as an antibacterial, fungicidal, expectorant, stimulant, anti-flatulent, anti-inflammatory, diuretic, anti-rheumatic and sedative agent. It has been used to treat a wide variety of disorders like general exhaustion, anemia, flu, coughing, tuberculosis, chronic bronchitis, indigestion, digestive disorder, gastric acidity, stomach and intestinal spasms, liver disorders, migraines, faintness, impotence, menstrual disorders, scurvy, etc.
Oil of Cedar
The oil of Cedar has been used as an anti-infectious agent or a stimulant.
The individual ingredients are only part of the picture. The other part is the particular combination of these ingredients to maximize their effectiveness is supporting the immune system. It is a liquid solution where you put half a capful or a capful in some water twice a day. One bottle is a month’s supply for maintenance. Double for more profound effects. We like the fact that it was originally created by a team of MDs and researchers who based their formulation on actual research studies.
A few years ago the owner of a company harvesting and growing phytoplankton from sea water to feed a fish farm was told he has cancer, and that he didn't have long to live. For some reason, and much to his daughter's disgust, he started eating some of the phytoplankton paste he was producing, just scooping some up with his fingers and eating it. Three months or so later his cancer was gone, his blood sugar normalized too. He started having other people take it, and their health improved also. So he started selling the stuff.
It's very good stuff. One of the bases of the whole food chain. Wild. Full of nutrients, it is a marine macroalgae. It does contain long chain polysaccarides that enhance cell communication, making it a powerful immune system supplement. While one bottle a month can be used for maintenance, to deal with cancer you need to be using about six bottles a month.
AFA Blue Green Algae
AFA Blue Green Algae (A wild, fresh water blue green algae) consistently increases energy levels and gives people a greater degree of health. Like all nutrient dense green food concentrates, it helps the body detoxify and is an excellent alkalizer.
It supplies small amounts of premium quality nutrients generally lacking from our diet -- virtually every nutrient -- in an energetic form that maximizes their benefits because it is harvested wild and is processed correctly.
This supplement also has cancer killing abilities.
The Chicago Tribune, February 9, 1996 reported "Blue-green algae... has yielded a promising new family of anti-cancer drugs, researchers said Thursday. The compounds derived from algae have shown remarkable ability to shrink tumors in mice, enough to cure some animals, said Gregory Patterson of the University of Hawaii."
"Mice were implanted with cancer cells that cause breast and prostate cancer in humans, and treated with algae-derived compounds called cryptophycins, which appear to attack the internal structure of cancer cells, blocking their ability to continue spreading. Patterson said."
There are other ways this algae may be of help with cancer.
Virtually every trace mineral is contained in it as it grows in mineral rich Klamath Lake. Trace minerals are needed for enzymes to function. If respiratory enzymes in your mitochondria don't have the trace minerals they need, they will be further impaired.
Containing high amounts of chlorophyll, it is an excellent detoxifier. Chlorophyll is thought to be especially valuable for dealing with cancer. Because its structure is very similar to hemoglobin, there are some who claim it may help transport oxygen. And being a concentrated green food, it is very alkalinizing.
Along with Oxy E, it has often been known to help reduce the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation therapy. And will not interfere with any medication.
It was one of the first living organisms on earth. The basis of life. Billions of years old. Cellular biologists say that the enzyme system in this particular algae is virtually identical to the enzyme system in our cellular mitochondria. The mitochondria is what produces the energy in our cells.
So it may supply additional respiratory enzymes to replace the damaged ones. Which would be important indeed, given Otto Warburg's research and his idea that to fight cancer you need to take respiratory enzymes to replace the damaged ones. This algae is processed in such a way that its enzymes are alive and viable.
This algae contains a significant amount (about 3-5% by weight) of the essential omega-3 fatty acid linolenic acid. The essential fatty acids present in it were remarkably bioavailable and led to the accumulation in the blood of EPA and DHA, two long chain fatty acids associated with brain function and cardiovascular health. In addition, it led to a decrease in the blood of the inflammatory fatty acid arachidonic acid.
This data suggests that this blue green algae may be a good dietary supplement to prevent deficiency in omega-3 fatty acids. Your cells need an adequate supply of omega-3 fatty acids to oxygenate properly. In addition, it's...
Proven Effective at enhancing Natural Killer Cell activity by 40%!
In March 1998, an article was published describing the effect of this algae on the migration of Natural Killer cells. This study, performed by Dr. Gitte Jensen at Royal Victoria Hospital, demonstrated that this algae triggered within 2 hours the migration of nearly 40% of the circulating natural killer cells. (Which the body uses to destroy viruses and cancer cells.)
This study was repeated, and confirmed the results obtained previously, and further revealed that this effect is seen only in people eating this algae on a regular basis. (This second paper appeared in the Jan '00 issue of the Journal of the American Nutraceutical Association.)
AFA Blue Green Algae Enhances Stem Cell Production
More research has shown that two phytonutrients in the AFA Blue Green Aglae actually work to enhance the production of stem cells. These facilitate the repair of diseased cells in the body.
Suggested therapeutic dosages range up to about 15 grams a day for the most serious of conditions. Until one becomes healthy, at which point you cut back. Use about half as much for not quite so serious conditions. With both well known for providing an energy boost, blue green algae combined with Oxy E does a good job of getting people more active and energetic.
Start out using small amounts of the algae and work up to the larger amounts. It comes in two forms. Powder, and in 500 mg tablets or capsules. If you are comfortable drinking it in liquids, the powder is the better choice as it is less expensive, and soaking the powder in a liquid for several hours makes it even more potent. Tablets can be more convenient, and many people don't like the taste of drinking a concentrated green powder.
People start out taking 6 to 10 tablets or capsules per day, about 2 to 3 teaspoons of powder. The 1 pound container of powder will supply a high therapeutic amount of 15 grams or about 9 teaspoons a day for a month. Two of the 500 tablet bottles will supply an equivalent amount. Or get just one of the 500 tablet bottles if you are not going to use the highest therapeutic dose, but are going to take a normal therapeutic amount. And of course, the 130 capsule bottle can be used to try it out.
Total Hormone Solution
This product is included in the immune support section because people with cancer have a collapsed hormone system. And you need a strong functioning hormonal system to control the immune system response. Total Hormone Solution is a unique formula that feeds the glands that make up the hormonal system, and activates the whole system so that it starts working properly. This allows your brain to better connect with the body and direct the fight against cancer.
It is a 2 ounce liquid herbal extract made from isolated fractions of Indonesian yams. This is combined with subtle frequency technology to activate and energize the hormonal system.
Defense is another immune support herbal formulation that is primarily a cancer cell killer. It also acts as an antioxidant and immune system booster. It is excellent for knocking out tumors. For instance, within three days of taking just 1/4th of a capsule twice daily, the cat's tumor started making dramatic changes. Then on the fifth day, more changes -- the tumor began disintegrating. It turns out that the tumor actually liquidized and leaked out onto the driveway where the cat was lying in the sun. This was after 2 years of using Graviola and other natural supplements that had not been successful in stopping the cancer.
The four main ingredients in Defense are Black Cumin, Muscadine Grape Seed, the Native American Sacred herb “Tsi-Ahga” and Allicin-Release Product (ARP) from garlic. Each one is demonstrated in scientific research to strengthen, support and modulate the immune response in different ways.
Garlic extracts have been used for thousands of years successfully to aid in a wide variety of conditions. Allicin is the natural defense mechanism of the garlic plant that science has proven to be effective as a defense for us as well. Some research-supported actions of Allicin are: reduces blood pressure, kills microscopic organisms, poisonous bacteria, parasites and fungal infections, aids in preventing neoplasm, reduces high blood cholesterol, removes heavy metals and other toxins, scavenges and removes free radicals, repairs immune system cells by providing high sulfur compounds, and increases blood circulation.
Even though Allicin was discovered in 1944, its volatility means that most garlic based products contain hardly any Allicin. Using a patented process, Defense has pure allicin in it that is stabilized and effective. The amount found in two capsules of Defense is equivalent to eating 45 bulbs of garlic!
Black Cumin has impressive scientific research behind it that shows it stimulates the bone marrow to produce immune cells, increases interferon production, protects the body against viruses and inhibits infection. Black Cumin has also been proven effective against the development of cancer.
Some researchers speculate that black cumin oil is more effective than other cancer fighting supplements.
The makers of Defense use a patented process to turn the black cumin oil into a powder without losing any of the essential phytonutrients found in the oil. In its capsule form it is much easier to take than the oil. It is the highest quality cumin, organically grown in Egypt.
Tsi-Ahga is a Native American Medicine derived from conks that grow on certain cone-bearing trees. The Beta-3D-glucans which make up part of the cellular structure of these Conks cause a modulation of T-Cells, Macrophages and Neutrophil White Blood Cells, when ingested. In fact, it has been established that the number and viability of these particular cells is increased by as much as 4000% within 20 hours after taking Tsi-Ahga!
Macrophages and Neutrophils are the two cells upon which all other immune cells depend. You can have many viable B-Cells and T-Cells, but they will not be effective without the programming provided by these macrophage and neutrophil “Communicator” cells. Tsi-Ahga also contains bitter triterpene compounds that support the thymus and spleen (essential to insuring that immune cells are properly programmed), anti-tumor polysaccharides, blood pressure-reducing angiotensin re-uptake inhibitors, and perhaps the highest source of germanium in nature. Germanium is an oxygen catalyst, and one of the most powerful free-radical scavengers found in nature.
Muscadine Grape Seed contains higher levels of antioxidants than blackberries, black raspberries, blueberries, cranberries, red raspberries, and strawberries. This finding was established in the early 1990s by Mississippi State University, as well as by the National Institutes of Health. Because it is so much higher in antioxidants, Muscadine Grape Seed protects and restores immune function resulting in a wide variety of protection throughout the body.
Defense is a very good and inexpensive cancer fighter. Use four to six capsules a day, 2 or 3 bottles a month.
This is an herbal formula designed to fight colds and other seasonal illnesses. It will activate the liver, kidneys and lymph system so that they will be better able to handle the toxins and dead cancer cells that need to be eliminated when you are attacking cancer. You may even want to start it first, a day or two before other supplements or treatments, if time is not an issue, to get those organs in better shape before inundating them with toxins and dead cancer cells.
According to some anecdotal reports, Seasonal Rescue is a powerful cancer fighter too. This is because it contains wasabi and herbs that facilitate wasabi's transportation into cells and activate the wasabi. There have been a number of Japanese studies showing that wasabi is a powerful cancer killer. Plus it has a number of herbs that boost and enhance the immune system. As you will see, it works quite well.
One man with a spot of skin cancer decided to fight it with Seasonal Rescue. He took 5 tablets 6 times in day. By the end of the second day the cancerous spot was gone. A woman, upon learning she had ovarian cancer also took 5 tablets 5 or 6 times a day. In 30 days her cancer was gone. One bottle lasts a week when taking 5 tablets 5 times a day. Consider it both for supporting your detoxification organs and for its cancer fighting abilities.
Carnivora is a patented extract of the plant, Venus's-flytrap, developed 30 years ago by the renowned German oncologist Dr. Helmut Keller. On a trip to the United States, he marveled at the flytrap's ability to digest protein such as insects, without harming itself, as it had no digestive system. He realized that compounds in it must have the ability to breakdown primitive, unshielded protein found in insects and microorganisms while leaving the more complex cells intact.
Being an oncologist, he knew that cancer is also a primitive cell with lots of irregular protein, and he thought it might prove to be a valuable tool in the fight against cancer. So he started using it with patients, and found that it was indeed, very effective against cancer, along with being excellent for fighting viral diseases, bacterial infections, fungal infections and parasites.
It works in several ways. Not only does it contain compounds that digest primitive protein while leaving normal cells alone, but studies have shown that it contains nutrients that improve immune response, increase NK and macrophage cell production, activate and increase self-defense cells in the body, provide antioxidant support, stimulate lymphocytes, reduce inflammation and more. Studies show it has no toxic or mutagenic effects in the human body up to 4,500 times the daily dosage so it is completely safe.
The well-known alternative MD, Robert Rowen has been using Carnivora in his practice for years. He began using it after reading an article by Dr. Morton Walker detailing remarkable cures of life-threatening diseases with Carnivora. Dr. Walker estimated a 45% significant response rate to cancer with Carnivora alone. Dr. Keller said the results are much higher with integrated approaches such as what we suggest in this article.
From what I have read about its use in Germany and now the US, it works excellently for early stage cancers, with success rates as high as 90% reported when used with other products as part as an integrated approach. It is of no help with osteosarcoma.
Carnivora comes in capsules and as a liquid extract. Capsules are always taken if Carnivora is used. The liquid extract is expensive and is typically used along with the capsules where more serious support is needed. Therapeutic usage ranges from 6 to 9 capsules a day with more not necessarily being better. There are 100 capsules in a bottle. High doses of the liquid extract can be used, gradually increasing from 10 drops 3 times a day. The more serious the situation, the more is used.
Dr. Rowen reports that many physicians using Carnivora are recommending 20 drops six to eight times daily with a drop of DMSO taken with it to enhance absorption. Each bottle of the liquid extract supplies 600 drops. Carnivora has a short life in the body, around four hours, and works best when maintained in the bloodstream as consistently as possible. Carnivora is the only brand of Venus's-flytrap Dr. Rowen recommends as most others are diluted with problematic solvents while Carnivora is 100% undiluted and uncut.
Ellagic Acid Formula with Graviola
A few years ago an acquaintance told me story after story of people with cancer experiencing quick and dramatic improvement in their condition using Ellagic Acid.
A woman with stage 4 breast cancer virtually going into remission in two weeks. That kind of thing. Even a story of someone reducing their extremely high blood pressure down to normal in 10 minutes or so while at her doctor's office. Now I don't know why it brought down blood pressure so fast, but there has been a great deal of research showing that Ellagic acid has potent anti-cancer properties.
The Hollings Cancer Center has conducted extensive research on Ellagic acid and they have been very impressed with what they have discovered. In fact, they are now doing a double blind study on a large group of 500 cervical cancer patients. Their past nine years of study have shown that ellagic acid is causing G-arrest within 48 hours (inhibiting and stopping mitosis-cancer cell division), and apoptosis (normal cell death) within 72 hours, for breast, pancreas, esophageal, skin, colon and prostate cancer cells.
Clinical tests show that ellagic acid prevents the destruction of the p53 gene by cancer cells. Additional studies suggest that one of the mechanisms by which ellagic acid inhibits mutagenesis and carcinogenesis is by forming adducts with DNA, thus hiding binding sites on the DNA from the mutagen or carcinogen.
Ellagic acid has also been shown to inhibit the initiation of tumors in many types of cancer. It acts as a scavenger, and binds to cancer causing chemicals to make them inactive. It even prevents their binding to DNA and thus has been shown to reduce the incidence of cancer in human cells exposed to carcinogens.
Many people with cancer have been helped considerably by the use of high amounts of Ellagic acid. This particular supplement has high amounts of Ellagic acid and many other antioxidants with proven anti-cancer properties. These are:
OPCs from grapes seed extract and Resveratrol from the grape skin both have been shown to be quite potent. Resveratrol in particular has been heavily researched. Not only does it inhibit the growth of cancer cells, but it causes cancerous cells to revert back to normal, and helps prevent them from turning cancerous in the first place.
Green tea extract, which has long been known to fight cancer and heart disease. In addition the formula contains recommended amounts of most of the major antioxidant vitamins including Selenium and Vitamin E which protect against cancer and heart disease.
How well does this formula work?
One health food store owner who has seen it help many customers says she has never seen anything work better against cancer.
She tells of the story of a 90 year old man with prostate cancer which had spread to the bones. On his own he started taking 21 capsules a day, 6 capsules being the normal amount, so as usual for the best results significantly increase how much you take. In a few months his cancer was gone. He was alive and in good health 3 years later. Not bad for a 90 year old man.
To make this formula even better, recently an extract from a rainforest tree was added. Graviola. There is a very interesting story behind Graviola. In 1976 a billion dollar drug company started investigating Graviola's cancer fighting properties. Incredibly, they found phytochemicals in it to be:
So what does this drug company do? They found two phytochemicals in Graviola that literally destroy cancer cells. Without harming healthy cells. And the extracts actually boost immunity!
Does the drug company tell the world? Nope. Instead, the company sends researchers into the lab to isolate the natural chemicals so they can crank out a patented, prescription version of the drug. They do this for seven years before they finally give up... the synthesized version just wasn't working. (And you can't patent natural compounds -- it's against the law.)
So what do they do next?
Instead of publishing their findings, they box up the research and put it away to collect dust.
However, news about the research on cancer was out, and research on Graviola did continue, though it took a couple of decades for it to do so. Purdue University, funded by the NCI and NIH, has done a good deal of research on graviola. In 1997 they reported that the Amonaceous acetogenins found in Graviola: "not only are effective in killing tumors that have proven resistant to anti-cancer agents, but also seem to have a special affinity for such resistant cells."
These cells resist drugs by developing a pump that pushes the drug out the cell before it can kill it. Graviola inhibits the production of ATP so that cells cannot produce as much energy. While this may does not cause a problem in normal cells, it wrecks havoc on the cancer cells with pumps because of their high energy requirements.
All in all, some remarkable phytonutrients are found in this Ellagic acid with Graviola formulation that do a very good job on cancer. One bottle contains 180 capsules and a high therapeutic amount would be using 18 to 24 capsules daily, 3 to 4 bottles monthly.
These products comprise some of the top tier of the immune supporting cancer fighting supplements. Below are additional immune system supplements that are very good for fighting cancer that would be a valuable addition in any cancer fighting program.
Whole Cell Beta -1,3D Glucan
Not all beta glucan is the same. The most common kind is a split cell brewer's yeast beta glucan that is inexpensive and not effective. Oat beta glucan is less inflammatory, but the best type, with the most research done on it is a whole cell beta glucan from baker's yeast. Being an extract, it does not cause problems in people with yeast allergies. This beta glucan has been proven to be one of the strongest immune system supplements in several studies.
Researchers have reported that this orally administered beta glucan provided tumor-protective effects by statistically decreasing the size and weight of tumors removed from study animals. Beta Glucan enhances about 75% of the function of the immune system. It works well with products like the Get Healthy Aloe MPS that concentrate on the other 25% of immune function.
Researchers at the Tokyo Dental College, University of Louisville and Biopolymer Engineering, demonstrated that mice in a colon cancer model treated daily with oral beta glucan after 21 days, had a 21 percent decrease in tumor weight and volume, compared with untreated mice in the control group.
Peer reviewed literature from Harvard, Tulane, the University of Louisville, and Baylor agree. Properly manufactured Beta glucan may be the best activator/potentiator of the immune system ever discovered.
This Whole Cell Beta 1-3D Glucan is one of the most tested and scientifically proven immune supplements there is. Testing shows that it supplies more beta glucans by a significant degree than other beta glucan products, including the mushroom products that produce beta glucans. It is the type that has been used in the vast amount of studies done on beta glucans by the US military and other researchers. If you want to be taking supplements that have a great deal of science and research behind them proving they are effective against cancer, and proving that they provide more beta glucan for the money, get the Whole Cell Beta Glucan. Suggested usage is one 500mg capsule for every 50 pounds of body weight.
Provides broad spectrum immune support using a number of powerful cancer fighters. It contains: Resveratrol protects healthy cells while killing cancerous cells. It was shown to reduce DNA mistakes during cell replication by 60%. You have already read about the anti-cancer benefits of Cordyceps mushrooms which can boost NK cell activity many-fold. Modified Citrus Pectin also has a long history of value when used for cancer. It interferes with the binding of galectins to cells walls, making it harder for cancer cells to form tumors. And contains galactosyl components that optimize immune function. Other ingredients include DIM, Natto Complex, Green Tea Extract and a synergistic herbal formulation of Indian Bala, Turmeric, Quercetin, Noni, Hyssop, Quinoa sprout concentrate, and Broccoli Concentrate. Use 3 bottles a month when fighting cancer. That's 12 capsules a day.
IP-6 and inositol are found in whole grains. They make IP-3 when consumed, a key molecule responsible for cellular signal transduction, controlling vital functions including cell proliferation and differentiation. The combination of IP-6 and Inositol (a common B vitamin) yields more of the crucial IP-3.
It is useful for cancer because all cancers, irrespective of their type and origin, have a common defect of uncontrolled cell proliferation. IP-3 is a key regulator of cell growth, and IP-6 & inositol make IP-3. So IP-6 & inositol normalize the rate of cell division in cancer cells.
IP6 has been proven to normalize the sugar production of cancerous cells. This helps make them less harmful.
It has also been proven to boost Natural Killer cell activity. These are white blood cells that target cancerous cells with the intention of destroying them.
IP6 has been shown to greatly increase the amount of the p53 gene, up to 17 times in some experiments. The p53 gene acts as a policeman by preventing genetically damaged or cancerous cells from growing and propagating. In addition, tumors are known to be more resistant to chemotherapy when p53 is low.
IP6 also inhibits inflammation. Inflammation triggers the release of cytokines which are known to cause cancer cells to grow.
It is a potent antioxidant, more potent than green tea. And it has also been shown to enhance apoptosis or cancer cell death, reduce blood vessel growth to tumors, and inhibits metastasis of cancer.
If you are getting enough inositol from whole grains in your diet, then supplementing with just IP6 may be enough. Best assimilated on an empty stomach, 3 capsules a day is the normal amount to take. A high therapeutic amount is 5 times the amount. (Five bottles a month.)
This is a formulation of 3 of the premier algaes available. Equal amounts of rganic spirulina, organic and wild harvested AFA Blue Green Algae, and a special soft cell chlorella. You've already read about the AFA blue green algae. Research studies have shown that Spirulina has many beneficial, disease-preventing properties. Spirulina has been found to stimulate the immune system function and help the body to produce new blood cells. Spirulina’s dark blue-green color comes from a rainbow of pigments. Consistently high levels of Phycocyanin (ranging between 15 – 18%) give Spirulina its unique blue color. Phycocyanin is widely known as a blood builder in addition to the properties mentioned above in AFA Blue Green Algae, and also shows potent anti-viral activity and anti-cancer properties. Other pigments include the green in high levels of Chlorophyll and the oranges and yellows stored in the Carotenoids and Beta-Carotene.
This spirulina is 100% Certified Organic without the use of any Chilean Nitrate. Its primitive cell wall contains no cellulose, but soft mucopolysaccharides. This makes it a valuable food source for those with digestive difficulties. Its high protein content is therefore easily available as real nourishment.
The third ingredient in Power 3 is a Soft-Celled Chlorella that is grown in a perfect environment and therefore does not need to develop a thick-celled barrier in order to protect itself from combative elements. Spinning and pressure-cracking a thick-cell wall can be unnatural and traumatizing to the cell itself. It is digestible and assimable. It is the world’s highest source of chlorophyll, at over 2 percent. Chlorophyll is well-known as a stimulator of red cell formation in the blood—it is therefore a blood-builder. Chlorophyll has been known to strengthen the immune system, speeding the healing process, cleansing the bloodstream, liver, and bowel. Its cleansing and sterilizing action makes it a natural body deodorant.
Chlorella’s 3% RNA and 0.3% DNA content makes it one of the highest-known food sources for nucleic acids. Nucleic acids are very beneficial in the repair of damaged genetic material in cells, in maintaining health and in slowing down the aging process. Chlorella assists the body at the cellular level thereby raising the body’s energy level and vitality. Chlorella contains a substance unique to itself called Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF). CGF has been shown to dramatically accelerate growth in organisms and promote the healing of damaged tissue. It also stimulates the building up of the immune system. It also has strong detoxifying properties. Studies show it can neutralize and remove poisonous substances, such as heavy metals, dioxin and PCBs, from the body. It has also been found helpful in assisting the body’s resistance to radiation. In addition, Chlorella has been shown to aid in healthy liver functioning and improve digestion by stimulating the growth of beneficial intestinal bacteria.
Estrogen Defense and Progesterone PleoLyposome
A major issue to be dealt with in the hormonal cancers like breast cancer and prostate cancer is estrogen dominance. The excess production of estradiol in both men and women creates the problem of estrogen dominance which can lead to cell proliferation and DNA damage - a formula for cancer.
Estrogen Defense contains Indole - 3 Carbinol and DIM both of which are used to inhibit aromatase which would then reduce estradiol levels. Unfortunately, these two compounds are normally poorly absorbed. Estrogen Defense absorption levels are high because the Chinese doctor who formulated this product uses an old Chinese technique to increase absorption. Evodia, Chrysin, and Piperine are included for their absorption increasing abilities too. The other important ingredient is resveratrol from fermented grape seed and skin. Research is showing that it is an extraordinary aromatase inhibitor. A bottle a month of Estrogen Defense is well worth using for any breast, ovarian or prostate cancer patient.
Use with Progesten PleoLyposome which is a special progesterone cream. The progesterone will occupy estrogen receptor sites, keeping them busy so that the estrogen will not attach to those receptor sites. Progesten PleoLyposome hides the wild yam extract inside phospholipids so that they are delivered to the cells and don't get trapped in the skin like most progesterone creams.
Goji, Mangosteen, Acai Berry Powder Effective Fighting Cancer
Over the last few years the remarkable cancer fighting benefits of these exotic, health promoting fruit juices have emerged. When taken in sufficient quantity, they have proven to be highly effective cancer fighters. Anecdotal reports abound with recoveries from cancer when using these as juices in high quantities. There is hard scientific research behind these juices proving that they are indeed exceptional against cancer. Xango from the Mangosteen fruit and Goji Juice have were the first ones that came into prominence. Acai has recently been found to be very good against cancer.
A University of Florida study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry showed that extracts from acai berries triggered a self-destruct response in up to 86 percent of leukemia cells. Acai berries are also one of the richest fruit sources of antioxidants.
Numerous studies show that mangosteen phytonutrients kill cancer cells. The Sloan-Kettering Institute found mangosteen promotes apoptosis in cancer cells. Mangosteen's most important phytonutrients are xanthones -- some of which have properties for reducing tumors and fighting leukemia.
They have anti fungal activity - critical for all cancer patients, antibacterial activity which protects DNA, antioxidant activity too. At least two dozen different kinds of xanthones are in the mangosteen fruit, They also are noted for helping with the anti proliferation of cancer cells, killing cancer cells and causing apoptosis in some types of cancer.
Goji berries may be the richest source of carotenoids of all known foods. They contain 500 times the amount of vitamin C, by weight, than oranges. Of perhaps greater importance for fighting cancer are the polysaccharides which fortify and boost the immune system.
Goji berries have been traditionally regarded as a longevity, strength-building, and sexual potency food of the highest order. In several studies with elderly people where the berry was given once a day for 3 weeks, in 67% of the patients T cell transformation functions tripled and the activity of the patients white cell interleukin-2 doubled. In addition, the results showed that in everyone, spirit and optimism increased significantly, appetite improved in 95%, the same percentage slept better, and 35% partially recovered sexual function.
Anecdotal reports abound of these juices knocking out cancer in people when taken in large quantities. There are many reports of people using a bottle, or 25 ounces, of mangosteen juice a day whose cancer went away in 3 weeks. Goji users say the amount needed is less, about a range of 4 to 8 bottles a month helps significantly with cancers. One would assume that the newer acai juice would fall somewhere in the range of these numbers of bottles as you always have to use significant quantities of whatever you take for cancer.
There are some drawbacks to the juices though. They contain plenty of sugars which you don't want when you are fighting cancer. They have to be pasteurized which denatures the nutrients. And they generally provide only a small amount of the actual superfood concentrate per one ounce serving. Often 50 mgs or less. Which is not very much. A much better value is to get a juice powder that contains 500 milligrams each of goji, mangosteen and acai per serving. With 90 servings in a container of the powder, this would provide you with many more nutrients than you get from the juices for much less money. For the most purity, as there is a very small amount of organic cane sugar in the powder, get the veggie capsules contain 600 mgs of each of these juice powders, and nothing else, 60 capsules per bottle.
For three months double up on the dosage and do six servings a day. This will saturate your cells with a wide variety of antioxidants and supercharge the cancer fighting ability of these nutrients. That way you'll be getting the equivalent amount of nutrients that are supplied when drinking therapeutic, cancer fighting, amounts of the individual juices. Of each different one.
Anytime you are taking whole food superfoods which are highly usable by the cells in your body, they are going to do you a lot more good than synthetic vitamins or isolated nutrients. The juice powder from these powerful cancer fighting juices, when taken in double or triple doses, can do you a lot of good in your program to eliminate cancer from your body. And provide plenty of other health benefits too.
Research shows that pomegranate phytonutrients fight cancer, especially estrogen based cancers like breast cancer and prostate cancer. In addition studies show that it is effective against lung cancer and skin cancer. Pomegranates are a source of ellagic acid and you can obtain it in powdered form in the Ellagic Formula with Graviola. According to master herbalist Donald Yance in his book HERBAL MEDICINE, HEALING & CANCER, ellagic acid "inhibits cancer formation and is believed to inhibit cancer mutation by latching onto DNA-masking sensitive sites on the genetic material that might otherwise be occupied by harmful chemicals. Ellagic acid is particularly effective in the inhibition of lung cancer caused by tobacco." Pomegranate contains anthocyanidins and proanthocyanidins, which have been shown in experiments to reduce tumor angiogenesis.
Goji Liquid Concentrate,
Goji Concentrate is the stuff they make juices from. It is convenient to put in water or smoothies or whatever, and gives you much more actual nutrients than the juices. This is a 6 ounce bottle.
This is a formulation of soil based organisms that are bile and acid resistant so that they do not get destroyed by the stomach acids and intestinal bile. While technically a probiotic and working on digestion, they are included here as an immune supplement because soil based organisms do a great job of stimulating the immune system. Because they are not organisms that normally exist in the intestinal tract, when you take soil based organisms, they elicit a response by the immune system that creates an army of antibiodies able to be used for whatever the body needs.
In addition, they stimulate the production of natural alpha interferon. Alpha interferon has long been used as a treatment for cancer, with great potential if only they could somehow do away with the side effects of this artificial interferon. (As with all drugs where they change nature and make something synthetic so that they can patent it, the drugs don't work as well as natural sources - and they have harmful side effects. Stimulating production of all species of alpha interferon naturally, which is what Native Flora does, is much more effective, and has no harmful side effects.
Lactoferrin is also a powerful immune system component when it comes to cancer or other diseases. It is found in undenatured whey protein like ImmunoPro. Soil based organisms naturally produce lactoferrin in your body. They also are known to produce SOD, the number one antioxidant in your body.
They clean off the walls of the intestinal tract, improve digestion, kill pathogens and parasites, and more. Having healthy intestinal flora is a fundamental of good health, and soil organisms are excellent for improving the condition of the intestinal tract.
The Townsend Letter for Doctors & Patients in the 1997 August/September issue reported on a small study done in Mexico using soil based organisms with "chronic lymphocytic leukemia in 35 human adults. Soil based organisms attenuated the symptoms of approximately 80% of the treated patients.
A doctor, who had used soil organisms 20 years ago on Aids and cancer patients, says that soil based organisms are the best product there is for Aids and cancer. He used it with many patients and saw excellent results in their blood work and other testing. He feels that the reason it works so well is that it produces large quantities of alpha interferon in the body.
Each capsule of Native Flora contains 5 billion soil based organisms in a base of blueberry powder. There are 60 capsules to a bottle. Normally one bottle lasts a month. More can be taken to increase the stimulation of the immune system. Two or three bottles a month being a normal therapeutic dose.
Boosting the Thymus Gland
The thymus gland controls the immune system. It is most active in children and becomes less active and smaller as we age. In one study a group of 55 people with inoperable oat cell lung cancer were given thymosin, a thymus hormone. Survival time doubled and 21 people given very high amounts were alive 2 years later.
Experts seem to feel that it works best for age related cancers like kidney, lung and prostate. Pituitary cancers have also been helped by use of natural thyroid hormones in some people with low thyroid levels. Get a natural product like Thyroid Specialist for this.
You can also wear an Energized Medallion. It was designed to energize the thymus. A small glass oval, it is filled with the high energy gel (more on this later), that when worn over the thymus, puts that energy into the thymus. Some users report an almost immediate improvement in energy and sense of well being.
This list of immune supplements is a bit overwhelming, it does comprise some of the more potent cancer fighters. Pick and choose what you want as they can be used together. Next we will take a look at another issue most people fighting cancer need to deal with.

Topical Vitamin C Stops Basal Cell Carcinoma(OMNS Nov 9 2007)
The most common form of skin cancer, basal cell carcinoma, often
responds to a remarkably simple, safe, at-hometreatment: .
Physicians and patients report that vitamin C,applied directly to
basal cell skin cancers, causes them to scab overand drop off. 
Successful use involves a highly-concentrated solution,
directly applied to the blemish two or three timesa day. is
selectively toxic to cancer cells, but does notharm healthy skin
cells. This is also the basis for high-doseintravenou s vitamin
therapy for cancer.  Even higher concentrationsof can be
obtained by direct application. The use of topicalvitamin C to kill
basal cell carcinoma has been known at least since1971. Frederick R.
Klenner, MD, wrote: "We have removed several smallbasal cell
epithelioma with a 30 percent ointment" of .  One person,
who reported that a 2mm diameter spot on the nose wouldnot heal for
months, had it disappear within a week with twice-dailyconcentr ated
applications. Another patient reported thatafter
dermatologist- diagnosed multiple spots of basal cell carcinomawere
coated with , the spots fell off within two weeks.  Basal
cell carcinomas are slow growing and it is rare for them to metastasize.
This provides an opportunity for a therapeutic trial of ,
provided one has proper medical diagnosis and follow-up.
Preparation of a water-saturated solution is simple.
Slowly add a small amount of water to about half a teaspoon of vitamin
C powder or crystals. Use just enough water to dissolve the . Using less water will make a paste. Either way, application with
thefingertip or a cotton swab, several times daily, is easy. The
waterwill evaporate in a few minutes and leave a plainly visible coat
ofvitamin C crystals on the skin. Consult your doctor before employing
this or any other self-caretreatment. A physician's
diagnosis is especially important, sinceother forms of skin cancer,
such as melanoma, are faster growing andmore dangerous. If the
treated area is not improved after afew weeks, a doctor
should be consulted once again.

What people eat and how fast they grow are both significant causes of cancer, but many Americans still incorrectly believe that factors such as pesticides on food are bigger causes, experts reported on Wednesday.
Breastfeeding reduces the risk of cancer for mother and child, and tall people have a higher risk of cancer than shorter people, the report found.
(Dr. Julie Silver explains this new report.)
"We need to think about cancer as the product of many long-term influences, not as something that 'just happens,'" Dr. Walter Willett, a nutrition expert at the Harvard School of Public Health in Massachusetts, told a news conference.
The report, released jointly by the World Cancer Research Fund and the American Institute for Cancer Research, is the result of five years of study by nine teams of scientists.
They reviewed 7,000 studies on diet, exercise, weight and cancer.
Most of what they recommended is in line with what health experts, including governments and the World Health Organization, have long been advising -- that diets based on fruits, vegetables and whole grains and that go easy on red meats, dairy products and fats protect against heart disease, diabetes and cancer.

According to new research, sunbathing can slow the ageing process by up to five years.
Scientists have discovered that people who stay away from sun exposure, or have insufficient vitamin D in their diet, are more likely to develop genetic damage linked with ageing and age-related illnesses.
According to researchers at the King's College, London, 90 per cent of the body's intake of vitamin D is created by exposure to the sun. The outcome of the harm is so great that those who lack vitamin D are biologically five years older than those with the highest levels.
"These results are exciting because they demonstrate for the first time that people with high levels of vitamin D may age more slowly than people with lower levels,” the Telegraph quoted lead researcher Dr Brent Richards, as saying. "This helps to explain how vitamin D has a protective effect on age-related illnesses such as heart disease,” he added.
Co-author Prof Tim Spector said the study established that people should increase their exposure to the sun and eat more vitamin D rich foods such as fish, eggs, fortified milk and breakfast cereals, or take supplements. "There are scares about melanomas, which do affect several thousand people per year. But vitamin D deficiency is making hundreds of thousands of people ill with potentially fatal diseases,” Spector said.
However, cancer campaigners are of the view that too much exposure to the sun could cause skin cancer. "It doesn't take much time in the sun to make vitamin D, and always less time than it takes to redden or burn,” Henry Scowcroft, of Cancer Research UK, said.

But will the nation?
With the Iowa caucuses just around the corner, presidential candidates are increasingly camped out in the state. And the state is greeting the process with open arms. HealthCommentary.org is there in part through the efforts of Atul Nakhasi and Greg Baker at the University of Iowa. They are the student leaders of the College Democrats and the College Republicans respectively, and are encouraging their members' participation in our Healthy Voices campaign this week.
Elsewhere in the state, citizen activism around health care is in the air. Take, for example the work of Kathleen O'Connor and her Code Blue Now organization. It recently completed a statewide survey gauging citizens opinions of their own health care and the need for health care reform.
The executive summary states:
"While it appears that Iowa voters are in a good situation personally with respect to health insurance, access to health care, and quality of care, they believe the national health care system is in need of improvement. Iowa voters value having enough information to be active participants in health care decisions. They also want accountability for health care spending, high quality health care standards, and affordable access for all Americans. Although they see the need for reform, there is no clear consensus about who should lead the charge, who should oversee a national health care system if one emerges, or how it should be paid for. Most voters find the idea of a non-partisan, non-profit organization of citizens and professionals appealing for this role but many want assurances about the expertise of the people within the organization, its goals and how it will be funded. While they do not trust government to solve the problem, they may not embrace a completely private-sector organization either. The only clear agreement is that whatever group tackles the problem needs to rely heavily on health care professionals for advice and counsel."
Health care reform clearly is, once again, front and center. What remains to be seen is whether it is possible, as part of our political process, to coalesce the will and the means to tackle the reform of this large and critical pillar of our society, which after over a century of use, with minimal incremental change, is now incapable of bearing the weight of a modern preventive, planning-oriented health care system.

There are many theories out there which attempt to make sense of why a cancer is produced in the body. Here are just a few examples:
- Tissue acidity
- Oxygen deprivation
- Immune deficiency
- Genetic predisposition
- Toxic accumulations
- Stress of the body and/or psyche
- Infectious microbes
No doubt that any of these can contribute to what can be called the "allostatic load". A human being is a biological system which is subject to carrying various physiological burdens which create a weakened state and thus increased tendency toward imbalance.
The most impressive model of understanding about cancer and most other disease that we have discovered is that of Geerd Hamer (MD) of Germany. His ideas are absolutely revolutionary regarding the nature of cancer and provide an opportunity for each of those afflicted to recontextualize their cancer experience and optimize their recovery.
In the Spring of 2006 we set out to prove that Dr. Hamer’s assertions regarding cancer (and most other disease) were incorrect. After having received some initial training and applying these concepts to our patients for several months we were confronted with an abundant amount of empirical evidence supporting Hamer’s ideas. Our most basic assumptions regarding cancer had been incorrect! This paradigm turns conventional medicine and even much of alternative medicine on its head, but once an understanding of the process is grasped, it points the way in terms of choosing various diagnostic or therapeutic interventions.
In order to maximize one’s success in navigating a given “dis-ease” process, it can be of tremendous benefit to familiarize with the basic principles of what is now called “German New Medicine” or GNM. Refer to the links below for an introduction.
