Curcumin

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on October 31, 2008


Posting on Cancercured Yahoo Health Group:

Here is what looks like one of the best if not the best Curcumin on the market, it has high bioavailability. Each 400 mg capsules of Super Bio-Curcumin is equivalent to 2772 mg of a typical 95 % curcumin extract. You would have to take 7 of 400mg 95% curcumin caps to equal one of the Super Bio-Curcumin.

Here is details on the product. Its two pages.

http://www.lef. org/magazine/ mag2007/oct2007_ report_curcumin_ 01.htm

Here is one place and a better price to buy at. Has same amount of Curcumin as Curcumin Extreme but no other extra’s in it.

Cancer: The Complete Recovery Guide   http://www.fightingcancer.com

According to Leonard:

http://www.remarkablefoods .com
makes asparagus (and other vegetable) concentrates.

If you know of any other (bulk) asparagus powders,
please let me know about them, as I think asparagus is the
single most powerfully cancer-healing food.

The power of oleander

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on October 31, 2008


Cancer: The Complete Recovery Guide    http://www.fightingcancer.com

This is a posting from the Oleandersoup Yahoo health group:

It may very well be a blessing that you cannot afford chemo, as that is not the answer.   Chemo, in itself, does not cure cancer as it addresses the cancer from the “outside” not its cause, which is a compromised immune system.  Chemo only serves to further compromise that immune system while destroying the organs.  And should there be a remission, the cancer always returns.  Addressing cancer naturally, while changing one’s lifestyle to a healthy one, is your best insurance that the cancer will not return.

Oleander is over 90% effective against all types of cancer.  Let me refer you to the following articles:

Success Against Cancer and HIV in South Africa

Oleander Induces Autophagy – Exclusive Story

For more articles please see the Oleander Series of Articles on The Best Years in Life .

This supplement can be obtained at http://www.sutherla ndiaopc.com .

Another option in taking the oleander extract is by making your own “Oleander Soup” and this just costs pennies a day.  Here are the instructions.

The Recipe for Oleander Soup Part 1

The Recipe for Oleander Soup Part 2 – Tips and Advice

If you do not have a plant readily accessible, I suggest you get one from an organic nursery.  Yet, even with a plant from an “organic” nursery you must make positively sure that it has not been sprayed with commercial pesticides.  Some organic nurseries are not truly “organic.”  And you must follow the recipe for the soup precisely.  No shortcuts should be taken.

I highly recommend that you take oleander in either the supplement form or by making the soup.  Oleander specializes in addressing the irregular cells that form tumors and greatly works to strengthen your immune system.

Other supplements that I highly recommend that you take are

Inositol/IP6 – this supplement has been known to “melt” tumors.
CoQ10 – This is a powerful antioxidant and I have had people give this supplement credit for their healing from cancer.

Another thing to address is your diet.  First of all get rid of sugar.  Cancer feeds on sugar.  Also do not eat processed foods, junk foods, fast foods, sweeteners, etc.  Make sure you eat a natural diet.  Actually, your best option would be to eat solely raw foods and do lots of juicing.

I am also going to include the link to Tony’s Anti-Cancer Protocol which includes a lot of what I have stated above and more.

A Natural Anti-Cancer Protocol

Utopia Silver has high quality supplements and members of this group, by inserting code LR001, get a 15% discount on items that are not on sale.

I hope I have helped you.  By following the above guidelines you will fill you bodily aresenal with the proper weapons toward your healing from cancer.

I wish you the very best,

Luella

sodium bicarbonate – good source

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on October 31, 2008


The Big Book: Cancer: The Complete Recovery Guide

The Small Book: Cancer Recovery Guide: 15 Alternative and Complementary Strategies for Restoring Health  –  For more information go to www.fightingcancer.com

“This book tells me everything. Why didn’t my doctor tell me this?” – Rev Bill Newbern

BAKING SODA

The alkalising benefits of sodium bicarbonate are now well known – see other posts

One problem with many commonly available sodium bicarbonate or baking soda sources is that they contain aluminium. One source that doesn’t is Bob’s Red Mill brand baking soda – which can be found at http://www.bobsredmill.com/product.php?productid=3607

Sorry if the link isn’t active – just copy and paste it.

Dr Mark Sircus is writing a book on the value of sodium bicarbonate and he has pointed out that all chemotherapy regimes are accompanied by sodium bicarbonate drip – so there is no separating the effect of the chemotherapy drug and the sodium bicarbonate! I’m not sure where this argument goes however because most chemotherapy regimes have been proven not to work by the people who want us to take them. Anyway, for those who want to read Dr Sircus’s books on magnesium and sodium bicarbonate go to

methyl jasmonate update

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on October 22, 2008


There’s really a lot of info on this site so do browse. This supports and extends the info and critical discussion in my two cancer books.  For more information go to www.fightingcancer.com

“This book tells me everything. Why didn’t my doctor tell me this?”- Rev. Bill Newbern

Methyl Jasmonate

(Sadly Steve Martin, author of this article has since died of his cancer)

Steve Martin of www.grouppekurosawa.com writes:

There is increasing evidence that methyl jasmonate, a plant stress hormone, may be the ultimate stand alone treatment for ALL cancers and leukemias. The original research on MJ as a treatment for cancer began in Israel, but now scientists in other countries, including the US and Japan, have begun their own research programs on the anti-cancer properties of this simple compound.

MJ is a simple compound that in crude form is used to prevent the infection of plants by bacteria. In pure form, it is used by cosmetics companies as a scent. Now we know that MJ is a viable treatment for cancer and different forms of leukemia. Eventually, the Israeli scientists who discovered the anti-cancer properties of MJ will receive the Nobel Prize.

The ultimate anti-cancer compound is toxic to cancer but not normal cells. Preferably there would be no side effects such as vomiting and hair loss. Also, it would be nice if this compound was relatively inexpensive and easy to administer. Naturally, this is all wishful thinking. No such compound exists.

Or does it?

We all know that damage to the outer mitochondrial membrane is a primary signal for programmed cell death. However, the initiation of apoptosis AKA programmed cell is a complicated process. It requires the activation of many genes and the inactivation of others. Genetic defects in key gene activity can block the initiation of apoptosis. For example, during periods of oxidative stress or DNA damage the universal tumor suppressor p53 is activated. This protein promotes programmed cell death, thereby inhibiting the development of cancers. Unfortunately, over 50% of all cancers harbor genetic defects in the p53 gene rendering it ineffective in promoting cancer cell death.

Methyl jasmonate selectively kills cancer cells by binding to their mitochondria membranes and inducing damage. This damage initiates apoptosis, BUT it bypasses the normal complicated biochemical steps involved classical programmed cell death. MJ induced cell death is direct. It does not depend on the activation of other genes or the p53 status of the cancer cell.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/queryd.fcgi?db=pubmed&cmd=Retrieve&dopt=Abstract&list_uids=15753398&itool=pubmed_docsum

We now know why MJ is so effective in killing cancer and leukemia cells.

[Contact www.grouppekurosawa.com for technical explanation]

Methyl jasmonate is administered in two different ways.

As an aerosol MJ is added to distilled water in a small personal steamer such as that manufactured by Vicks. It is sold by Amazon.com and large drug stores. 2 grams (2 milliliters) of MJ is added to the surface of the water where it will float as a light oil. The steamer is turned to high and the steam/MJ is inhaled into the lung. Breathe through the mask for 15-20 minutes. This is done every six days. I see no reason why it could not be done more often.

Topically 10 grams of MJ is added to 4 ounces of 70% DMSO gel. http://www.herbalremedies.com sells the gel that we prefer. It is made by Clinic Service Company.

This gel is applied up the nose for the treatment of brain cancer and onto the scrotum for the treatment of prostate cancer. As a more general method of delivery, the gel is applied to the arm pits. The arm pit area contains a high concentration of lymph nodes and lymphatic fluid. This is an excellent portal of topical entry into the circulation. The hair follicles in the arm pits are literally holes in the skin where MJ can be intoduced into the body. But first the hair follicles must be thoroughly washed with a detergent shampoo like Selsen Blue. This shampoo cleans out the crap clogging the follicle shafts. The topical formulations can be applied daily, although I would be careful sticking too much MJ at once up the nose.

Methyl jasmonate is used by Grouppe Kurosawa for our skin cream SkinAlive(R). We will sell 10 grams to others in the US for $180 including priority mail shipping. The total cost is $200 for shipping to Europe. Shipping costs vary for other parts of the world.

Payment is made by PayPal to smartin@grouppekurosawa.net.

It is my opinion that methyl jasmonate is the ONLY stand alone treatment for cancer and leukemia. Unlike other promising anti-cancer products which cannot be obtained by the general public, MJ is made by different manufacturers for sale to the cosmetics industry. It is a tad expensive, but a little goes a long way.

The importance of enzymes

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on October 18, 2008


Cancer: The Complete Recovery Guide   http://www.fightingcancer.com

Reposted from Yahoo Alternative Medicine Discussion group:

The Miracle of Oral Enzymes!
_http://www.qualitye nzymes.com/ html%20pages/ researchmiracle. htm_
(http://www.qualitye nzymes.com/ html%20pages/ researchmiracle. htm)

**Enzymes are a completely natural substance that many health experts call
the medicine of the future. If you are suffering chronic pain from arthritis,
cancer, sports injuries or heart disease–if you suffer circulatory problems,
tinnitus, fibrocystic breast disease, prostatitis, sinusitis, shingles,
ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, thrombophlebitis or other
inflammatory- related conditions, systemic oral enzymes will prove to be the elixer your body
craves now.** (Michael Loes, M.D., M.D.(H.) and David Steinman, M.A.)
By Iichiroh Ohhira

Is there a magic elixir for health?

Enzyme Therapy could be as close as we will ever get. Over the next 20 years
enzyme therapy will be the buzzword in nutrition. Enzymes will be the
nutritional supplement of the future, and the way we strengthen or immunological
system. The profound effect that these wonderful catalysts have is nothing
short of a miracle. They truly are the “”fountain of life”” itself. They are the
essential biochemical units of all forms of life. They regulate everything
that happens in our system. They coordinate every physical, mental, and
emotional activity. When enzyme activity slows in our body, so does our systems
efficiency. Enzymes effect everything, and when enzyme activity stops we stop.
Your understanding of enzymes and enzyme therapy can have an impact on you and
your family’s quality of health.

First lets look at the historical background of enzyme therapy, and our
understanding of the role enzyme therapy can play. Then we will review enzyme
therapy in its remarkable ability to slow the aging process and the treatment
for many types of injuries and illnesses. And last we give an overview of the
four medicinal properties of what proteolyic enzyme therapy can do for all of
us.

In the Beginning

Enzyme therapy dates back to the earliest human history. In South America
the Indians used papaya leaves for its catalysts properties in wound healing
and digestive disorders. In biblical times figs were used to heal tumors. It
was the enzyme **ficin** derived from the fig, which caused the tumor to
subside.

The father of Enzyme Therapy

Dr. Max Wolf was born in 1885 in Vienna, Austria. He received his first set
of degrees (of which he was awarded seven doctorates in his lifetime) in
civil and structural engineering, and as an engineer, he developed a number of
patented technological discoveries. At the age of 29 he left Austria to
visiting his brother in New York. At the encouragement of his brother who was a
physician, Wolf began to study medicine. Shortly after finishing medical school
he was appointed professor of medicine at Fordham University in New York.
Apart from this, he also opened a medical practice with his brother, in which
they specialized in gynecology, delivering well over 4000 babies in their
practice. Dr. Wolf developed a special interest in the hormonic system. To this
point no textbooks had been written, so with the help of his brother the first
textbook on endocrinology was developed. This gifted man then went on to study
genetics where he learned how to manipulate bacteria and plants, which served
to produce massive amounts of eatable protein. Dr. Wolf patented the process
and then presented the patents to Mahatma Gandhi, to help feed his starving
nation.

Because of his remarkable research, Dr. Wolf became aware of the key role
that enzymes played in the vital process of life itself. He was one of the
firsts to envision the great therapeutic possibilities that could be achieved
with better understanding of enzymatic actions. This went on to become his
life’s work. He learned through a fellow research scientist’s observation that the
blood serum of healthy individuals was able to destroy tumor cells, whereas
this characteristic was not seen in the blood of patients with cancer. This
fellow scientist called this substance **normal substance** because at that
time it was not known to be enzymes.

In Dr. Wolf*s research it soon became clear that the missing factor in the
cancer patients was enzymes, by the addition of enzymes to the blood of the
individuals with cancer, he re-established this oncolytic effect. With
additional research, and a long series of experiments, he then discovered that they
could significantly intensify this wonderful anti-cancer effect. But enzymes
did much more, and helping cancer patients is just one of there wonderful
uses. They have many different applications and have a broad spectrum of uses.
Dr. Wolf taught us that premature aging, with all its secondary symptoms, is
based primarily on a deficiency of enzyme. Enzymes help metabolic efficiency,
so it makes sense that when our system has normalized enzyme levels we are
more efficient and healthier. The four medicinal properties that these little
wonder workers have is, where most of the excitement has been. Lets look at the
properties that prodeolytic enzymes are known for.

1. Anti-inflammatory
They eat away at circulating immune complexes, the protein cleaving enzymes,
destroy the bugs that irritate soft tissue and create inflammation. (Soft
tissue
is (a) Epithelial tissue includes skin eyes, internal organs, muscle,
tendons, and joint capsules (b) Connective tissue which includes blood vessels,
fascia and ligaments.)

2. Anti-fibrotic
As we age the enzymes that control the lying down of fibrous tissue
diminish. As a result, too much fibrous tissue develops in the body. Fibrous tissue
that gets placed in the blood vessels, becomes the matrix for arteriosclrotic
plaque that clogs arteries. In blood vessels it causes thrombosis or blood
clots. In breast tissue it becomes fibrocystic breast disease, in the uterus-
fibromas. Prodeolytic enzymes been shown in studies to eat away at these,
diminishing their size and relieving the inflammation surrounding the condition,
therefor lowering the associated pain.

3. Blood thinning
In the eating away at dead (necrotic) matter in the blood, of circulating
immune complexes, in cleaning the white blood cells of the stuff they have to
collect to fight infection; prodeolytic enzymes lowers blood viscosity.
Aspirin also lowers blood viscosity but not by this mechanism and without side
effects, like going to far in thinning out blood and possibly producing
hemorrhage. Prodeolytic enzymes will not do that in any dosage. If the enzymes have
something to work on they will, if they don’t nothing happens and they will be
excreted from the body. Another fact about aspirin is that it can cause
intestinal bleeding. Between 10 and 20 thousand people die annually in the United
States from NSAID’s i.e. aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxsin etc.

4. Immune system supportive.
The white blood cells are in charge of distroying bad bugs in our system.
They have little extensions called Fc receptors. These extenuation’ s drill into
the bacteria and the like, distroying them. After that, the extensions pick
up the debris from the dead bug and carry it around awaiting disposition. The
end result is a stronger immune system.

Dr. Wolf’s original Enzyme preparation Wobenyzn has now been administered
successfully for almost 40 years, with mountains of research to its credit. Its
been shown to reduce inflammation of all types. Examples of frequently
existing inflammation are respiratory tract, nasal sinuses, prostate gland,
urinary tract, pancreas, operations and sports injuries. In fact a million enzymes
are sent to the Olympic training camp for both the German and Austrian teams
at the start of the Olympics to aid the athletes in healing quickly.

Enzymes are not the only **immunoactive substances** , which belongs to a
class of what’s referred to as **biological response modifiers**. The diversity
of life, offers many problems for human medicine, better understanding of the
role enzymes, the **givers of life** will play, hopefully helps, relieve
unnecessary suffering, and improve our quality of life. Proteolytic enzyme
combinations prove to be worthy in all phases of chronic and malignant diseases.
The sensible use of these holistic therapies offers a new and wonderful
approach. Holistic therapy is still at the beginning of its development. “

Intravenous Therapy – Myers Cocktail

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on October 18, 2008


Cancer: The Complete Recovery Guide    http://www.fightingcancer.com

Reposted from Yahoo Alternative Medicine discussion group

Intravenous Therapy – Myers Cocktail
_http://www.connecti cutcenterforheal th.com/intraveno us-therapy. html_
(http://www.connecti cutcenterforheal th.com/intraveno us-therapy. html)
The “Myers Cocktail” is an intravenous therapy consisting of various mixes
of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. It can be very useful in situations
where oral nutrients or other therapies are not working. When nutrients are
given intravenously, your digestive system is bypassed and a much higher
level of nutrition can be delivered directly to your cells via the bloodstream.
The nutrients then kick-start those cells which are performing below par.
This type of therapy would be especially appropriate for anyone who has
digestive problems, including bloating, diarrhea, food allergies, irritable bowel
syndrome
, Crohn’s disease, or other GI problem.
The general effect of a Myers Cocktail intravenous therapy appears to be a
marked improvement in the energy capacity and function of cells. If your cells
can function at their best, it’s more likely you can recover from a serious
health problem.
Back in the mid-1900s, Dr. John Myers was the first physician to extensively
use intravenous nutrient therapy to obtain positive clinical results for a
variety of medical conditions. Today, hundreds of physicians offer variations
of the Myers Cocktail.
People respond differently to intravenous nutrient therapy. Some may only
need an occasional Myers Cocktail, while others may need one monthly or even
weekly in order to keep their chronic condition under control.
The Myers Cocktail IV therapy may be helpful for many chronic or acute
conditions, including fatigue, fibromyalgia, depression, infection, asthma, chest
pain
, congestive heart failure, palpitations, migraine headaches,
cardiovascular disease, respiratory problems, seasonal allergies, hives,
hyperthyroidism, and acute muscle spasms, to name a few. A Myers Cocktail can even help
athletes recover faster from an illness so they can participate in an event.
If you or a loved one has a health problem that is not getting better, talk
to one of our physicians about the appropriateness of naturopathy and a Myers
Cocktail intravenous therapy.
The Connecticut Center for Health provides Myers Cocktail intravenous
therapy
. For more information about this service, please _contact our clinic_

Dr Kelley Eidem’s pepper cure

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on October 17, 2008


There’s a lot of information on this site so do browse – this supports the info and critical overview of cancer in my two cancer book – for details see www.fightingcancer.com

 

“This book tells me everything. Why didn’t my doctor tell me this.”

CAYENNE PEPPER CURE

For details of the “habanero pepper cure”

Dr Kelley Eidem    http://www.thedoctorwhocurescancer.com

Cayenne pepper has long been known to be very beneficial – the hotter the better. The heat of chillies are measured as Scofield heat units. The average shop-bought cayenne pepper is about 40,000 SHU – but you can buy 160,000SHU pepper off the internet- the hottest chilli pepper is about 1 million SHU – for health purposes the 160,000SHU is best -to make a tincture mix with vodka and keep shaking for a few weeks. Excellent.

For an interesting review read this article:
