Summary of a study into: Chemopreventive Efficacy of Inositol Hexaphosphate (IP6) against Prostate Tumor Growth and Progression in TRAMPMice

Komal Raina,1Subapriya Rajamanickam, 1Rana P. Singh,1,3 and Rajesh Agarwal1,2

Abstract Purpose: Herein, for the first time, we evaluated the in vivo chemopreventive efficacy of inositol hexaphosphate (IP6), a major constituent ofh igh-fiber diets, against prostate tumor growth and progression in the transgenic adenocarcinoma of the mouse prostate (TRAMP)

model.

Experimental Design: Beginning at 4 weeks ofa ge, maleTRAMP micewere fed 2% (w/v) IP6 in drinking water or only drinking water till 24 weeks ofa ge, and then sacrificed. Prostate tissue was subjected to histopathologic analysis and to immunohistochemical analyses for proliferation

and apoptosis.

Results: IP6 feeding did not show any adverse effect on fluid and diet consumption and body weight. There was a significant reduction (40%; P < 0.01) in lower urogenital tract weight in IP6-fedmice. IP6 inhibited prostate cancer progression at prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia stage and strongly reduced the incidence ofa denocarcinoma (prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia/ adenocarcinoma, 75:25% in the IP6 group versus 39:61% in the control group; P < 0.05). The incidences of well-differentiated and poorly differentiated adenocarcinomas in the IP6-fed group were reduced by 44% and 62%, respectively. Immunohistochemical analysis ofpr ostate tissue showed a 26% decrease (P < 0.05) in proliferation cell nuclear antigen ^ positive cells and a 3.5-fold increase in apoptotic cells with no effect on Tag expression by IP6.

Conclusions: These findings are both novel and highly significant in establishing for the first time that oral IP6, without any toxicity, suppresses prostate tumor growth and progression at the neoplastic stage, thereby reducing the incidence ofad enocarcinoma through its antiproliferative and proapoptotic effects, and thus indicating that IP6 could have potential chemopreventive effects against human prostate cancer.

Intravenous vitamin C – source & alternatives

Intravenous Vitamin C Source & alternatives

The following information is provided by Leonard:

V vit. C (IVC) is effective w/ovarian cancer.

According to BioImmune.com (which has enormous success treating cancer w/IVC), if one uses noncorn-derived vit. C, the cancer doesn’t develop a resistance to the vit. C.
1 such product, Ascor L NC (vit. C from cassava) can be purchased available from
http://www.mcguffmedical. com/images/ pdf_Files/ 2006Catalog. pdf; 800-854-7220)
Merritt Pharmaceuticals also makes non-GMO-corn- derived IVC.

>they say that if you take too much Vitamin C it will just go on our through your urine

Yes, it is excreted thru the urine, BUT if the dosage is high enough it will kill cancer cells and viruses and bacteria and fungi (and boost immunity) before it reaches the bladder.

IVC’s essentially a different therapy than oral vit. C (which is also beneficial for most cancer patients) because it allows one to achieve enormously higher blood levels of vit. C than can be obtained by oral vit. C.
The exception is:
LIPOSOMAL (aka lyposomal) vit. C (taken orally) allow one to get huge concentrations of vit. C (amounts comparable to IV vit. C) into cancer cells (which isn’t possible w/other oral vit. C products because of diarrhea).
http://www.livonlabs. com and Liposome Labs http://www.lipoflow. com and probably [least expensive] http://www.letstalkhealth. com are good brands

Thieves Oil

Thieves Oil

Vicki Pulford gives the following information:

Thieves Oil comes from research about four thieves during the 15th-century plague who used cloves, rosemary, and other aromatics to protect themselves while robbing plague victims.

How to use: Diffuse for short periods of time (1/2 hour or less) in the work or home environment. Apply to the bottom of the feet or dilute with a Massage Oil Base for a stimulating massage under the arms and on the chest at the base of the neck. Common Ingredients: Clove (Syzygium aromaticum), lemon (Citrus limon), cinnamon (Cinnamomum verum), Eucalyptus radiata, and rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) .

Here are two recipes for Thieves Oil. One from Karen another from Debbie.

Thieves Oil recipes:

  1. Equal amounts of eucalyptus, rosemary, cinnamon, clove and lemon. Mix with base of olive oil. I usually put a tablespoon of each in a 2 oz. bottle and then fill the rest with olive oil. you can make a larger batch in a quart jar following the same proportion method.
  2. Same ingredients, but measured out in different strength’s. Clove Bud Oil 200 drops, Lemon Oil 175 drops, Cinnamon Oil 100 drops, Eucalyptus Oil 75 drops, Rosemary 50 drops.

Thieves Oil Courtesy of Caroline Rogers founder of Nutrition Naturally and co-owner of The Tidewater Companion- A Holistic Health Directory and Resource Guide!

SUGGESTIONS FOR COLDS: According to the People’s Desk Reference For Essential Oils, (The PDR) the following single oils are suggested: lavender, lemon, marjoram, frankincense, eucalyptus, melaleuca and rosemary. Young Living produces quality blends; recommended formulas include: Thieves, R.C., Di-Tone or Purification. Also suggested is a raindrop therapy treatment–see massage page for information.

THIEVES: Clove * Lemon * Cinnamon * Eucalyptus * Rosemary * An Essential Oil blend formulated by Gary Young, N.D.,owner of Young Living Essential Oils, Payson, Utah.

REMEMBER: The stimulating aroma of cinnamon or cloves, but if you touched your lips with it, it could cause irritation.. .. or the fresh aroma of lemon and sipping a hot fresh squeezed lemon drink with honey if you had a cold or sore throat… and Vick’s Vapor Rub….the menthol aroma…your Mom would rub it on your chest to help you breathe easier at night in times of congestion.. ..the pungent rosemary herb in cooking…

Aromas evoke memories, and memories lead to family recipes in times of healing for use in colds, flu., congestion, headaches, body aches etc. The Thieves blend is such a recipe, historically recorded in the era during the plague. History records that the perfumers seemed to have an immunity against the plague.

Here is one story: The Four Thieves Vinegar. Perfumers by day, robbers by night. Four men made a concoction of herbs and essential oils in a base of vinegar and would douse their body with this before they went our plundering! They had a pretty good track record of stealing riches until the King found out and captured them, forcing them to give up their secret weapon against the plague. The herbal ingredients were wormwood, meadowsweet, juniper berries, rosemary, camphor, sage, cinnamon and cloves in a base of white wine vinegar.

PRESENT DAY THIEVES: The essential oils contained within this formula have been noted for anti-bacterial, anti-viral, antiseptic and anti-catarrhyal properties while stimulating the immune system, circulation and the respiratory system. According to research at Weber State University, Thieves was found to have a 99% kill rate against airborne bacteria when diffused.

MY EXPERIENCE: Due to the cinnamon and clove contained, one must be cautious–it may cause irritation if improperly used. Fair skinned, blue-eyed individuals, redheads and those who tend to sunburn easily need to heed and dilute Thieves in a carrier oil (such as almond ) before applying to the skin. I have used 1-2 drops of Thieves on the bottom of my feet and also at the nape of the neck. Other places could be under the arms,and on the chest. I do not suggest using this in a bath or in a sauna! Diffuse for only short periods of time–20 minutes or less at work or at home. I used a lot of Thieves during January and February and felt the results were positive.

PANCREATIC CANCER CURE STORY

Revisiting the ALA/N (-Lipoic Acid/Low-Dose Naltrexone) Protocol for People With Metastatic and Nonmetastatic Pancreatic Cancer: A Report of 3 New Cases

Southwest College of Naturopathic Physicians, Scottsdale, AZ, USA, rubin@naturopathics pecialists. com

Arthur J. Berkson, MD

The Integrative Medical Center of New Mexico, Las Cruces, NM, USA

The authors, in a previous article, described the long-term survival of a man with pancreatic cancer and metastases to the liver, treated with intravenous alpha-lipoic acid and oral low-dose naltrexone (ALA/N) without any adverse effects. He is alive and well 78 months after initial presentation. Three additional pancreatic cancer case studies are presented in this article. At the time of this writing, the first patient, GB, is alive and well 39 months after presenting with adenocarcinoma of the pancreas with metastases to the liver. The second patient, JK, who presented to the clinic with the same diagnosis was treated with the ALA/N protocol and after 5 months of therapy, PET scan demonstrated no evidence of disease. The third patient, RC, in addition to his pancreatic cancer with liver and retroperitoneal metastases, has a history of B-cell lymphoma and prostate adenocarcinoma. After 4 months of the ALA/N protocol his PET scan demonstrated no signs of cancer. In this article, the authors discuss the poly activity of ALA: as an agent that reduces oxidative stress, its ability to stabilize NFkB, its ability to stimulate pro-oxidant apoptosic activity, and its discriminative ability to discourage the proliferation of malignant cells. In addition, the ability of lowdose naltrexone to modulate an endogenous immune response is discussed. This is the second article published on the ALA/N protocol and the authors believe the protocol warrants clinical trial.

Key Words: pancreatic cancer • naltrexone • low-dose naltrexone • LDN • ALA/N • -lipoic acid • NF B • nuclear factor B • antioxidant • gemcitabine
