Maca Root and Hot flushes

Here is an anecdotal report of the benefits of maca root for womenexperience hot flushes (or is it hot flashes?)

“My sister takes Maca Powder since her hot flashes started and now she  says she gets NO hot flashes at all because it has balanced her hormones.

My sister says she takes one huge heaping tablespoon 3 times a day and that she buys the powder in bulk and not in capsules because it is way cheaper to buy it in bulk. She buys it in bulk by the pound. If you do a Google search for  “maca root powder” you will be able to find a lot of info. on it. I also use it in my daily smoothies as well for it’s nutritional properties since I remember reading some articles about it several months back. My sister swears by it. I don’t notice anything particular personally, but i’m not taking it for anything in particular other than doing my best just to stay healthy in life.”

Selenium and Cancer

Even the FDA agrees that selenium has a measurable anti-cancer effect. But what is the best form of selenium? It appears that the bioavailability of pure selenomethionine is almost twice that of selenite.

alternative cancer treatment – 2 personal experiences

Two Personal Experiences

1.First experience

Although everyone around me is frightened and appalled at my

2. Second Experience

I can tell you that there are certain alternatives that will indeed cause a tumor to swell up and burst. I had a tumor which I injected with a mixture of baking soda, distilled water and DMSO and it caused my tumor to  swell up, burst and bleed. At first there was quite a bit of pain but as  the tumor drained and disintegrated- then the pain went away.

Cancer patients want to survive – right?

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on June 7, 2010


Cancer: The Complete Survival Guide – www.fightingcancer.com

“Most cancer patients are looking for survival.” – Some thoughts by Vincent Gammill.

They [i.e. cancer patients] all profess to look for survival, but human beings are very complex and I think it behooves all cancer patients to really
take note of conflicts in their behaviors. Too often we see cancer patients elevate habits and life style issues above their therapies. Too often cancer can become a socially acceptable way to die when life gets difficult.

Discussion [on treatment tends to be ] around the
polarization that we live with: of “conventional” vs.
“alternative/natural.” Another way to view the panoply of choices is
to refuse to recognize this artificial, and manmade distinction and
simply ask, “Is there a way I can recover my health without
unreasonably further compromising my health in the process?” The
laws and the cultural conventions don’t make this approach easy. It
requires a person to take charge when maybe they’ve never taken
charge of anything in their lives. Unfortunately this treatment
option search is confounded by issues of insurance coverage, budget,
and quality of advice/information. Most intelligent people stumble a
few times and then find their way to natural, sensible, useful
strategies that are within their budget.

When a person is diagnosed with cancer there is nothing easier
to do than to punch up PubMed and find the prognosis for various
conventional treatments for their type, stage, and grade of
cancer. They need to then ask if this is desirable or
acceptable. They then need to look at the probable side effects of
the candidate treatment options — are these acceptable or
doable? If not, you would think that they would be compelled to do
almost anything that makes some sort of sense and is
affordable. There is not a week that goes by that I don’t see
someone fearfully but bravely march to a miserable and certain
demise. This is usually avoidable if they seriously weigh outcomes
and choose a logical and timely alternative recourse.

Long term impact of radiation treatment for cancer

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on June 7, 2010


Cancer: The Complete Recovery Guide – www.fightingcancer.com

Anecdotal report describes the long term impact of radiation on a relative

“I have been doing the [Budwig] protocol since Jan 08 with great success for myself, I have gotten my body back to pretty close to where it needs to be, I had my doubts at first but I stayed with it and feel great about it and will continue to do so for the rest of my life.

“It is with great regret however that I have learned a bit about radiation and its affects. A family member had cancer about 30 years ago, had both breasts removed and had taken radiation at that time. She is now struggling to live, she has holes in her lungs and a hole completely through the front of her chest, the doctors say they will never heal, the hole in her chest is big enough for a thumb to fit in. She wheezes all time and gasps for breath doing the simplest of chores.

“I am thankful I found Dr Budwig before I succumbed to chemo and radiation, she saved my life, or at least restored it back to near health thus far.

“I just want folks to think before acting, long term consequences are made sometimes without getting informed.
Thanks for listening… ….James N.”

Omega 3 and cancer

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on June 7, 2010


Cancer: The Complete Recovery Guide – www.fightingcancer.com

Omega 3 and Cancer

Ralph Moss reports that DHA, the most unsaturated of fatty acids, has been found to have a curative, stabilising and protective effect against neuroblastoma. Read his report here

http://www.cancerdecisions.com/content/view/492/2/lang,english/

DHA is found most readily in fish oils. Fish oil contains two omega-3 fatty acids: eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Flaxseed oil – the basis of the Budwig Protocol – on the other hand, is rich in alpha-linolenic acid, which is the parent fatty acid to DHA and EPA.

Your body converts alpha-linolenic acid rapidly into EPA, and more slowly into DHA. Roughly 11 grams of alpha-linolenic acid is needed to produce one gram of DHA and EPA. However, a diet that’s rich in trans-fatty fatty acids, for instance, will interfere with this conversion of alpha-linolenic acid into EPA and DHA. Trans-fatty acids are found in foods such as cookies, some types of margarine, chips, cakes, and popcorn. Anytime you see hydrogenated oil on the ingredients label of a food, there are probably some trans-fatty acids in there somewhere.

New Suggestion

Certain components of dietary oils called omega-3 unsaturated fatty acids, or ω-3 “UFAs” for short, have been consistently found to kill cancer cells or slow cancer growth. These effects are reported in hundreds of published medical studies, including some successful preliminary tests with patients, over the past three decades (see background and other tabs for review articles and details).

A study published in December 20093 indicated new possibilities for clinical efficacy using high doses of these agents. The study tested 22 fresh human tumor specimens of five cancer types using an advanced assay system that is highly predictive of clinical response. Tumor kill was total in each case once a critical high concentration of these agents was achieved, with no effect much below that concentration. The need for high doses of these agents has also been demonstrated in one animal study and in a set of clinical (human) studies that achieved successful anti-cancer response when agents were injected directly into tumor, but no effect with lower levels of agents obtained through oral or intravenous administration.

This UFA-based cancer treatment approach is one of many lines of investigational treatment currently being pursued, with one anomalous feature: at this preliminary stage of study, dietary administration of these agents offers best possibilities for both efficacy and safety.  It is thus possible for an informed patient to independently pursue this approach (if circumstances make this a viable and preferred option). Achieving the very high blood levels of such agents over hours required to penetrate and kill cancer cells, however, is not easy. Under normal conditions, molecules of these agents are carried in blood in inert, albumin-bound form, and thus drinking even gallons of an ω-3-rich dietary oil alone would likely have no effect.

Fasting, exercise and caffeine, however, are each highly effective in mobilizing fats from inert to active, unbound form. A regimen combining ingestion of flaxseed oil, consisting of 55% of the ω-3 UFA agent alpha-linolenic acid, in quantities on the order of a pint daily, with these three other effects over a three or four day period, can yield levels of active agent exceeding the tumor kill threshold found in the December 2009 study. Furthermore, this combination regimen can yield these high levels of active agent for the cumulative several-hour period required to fully penetrate into tumor cell membranes. Ingestion of the required daily quantity of oil in a reasonably palatable blend is well tolerated by a person with normal digestion, and the exercise required, about 90 minutes at the exertion level of power walking with intermittent breaks permissible, requires active but not athletic fitness status.

A proposed mechanism of action3 of ω-3 UFA agents is disruption of the cancer cell membrane. Under normal conditions, cell membranes contain mostly saturated fatty acids, small molecules with a shape analogous to a clothespin, with only a minority of UFAs, larger molecules with shapes more akin to a shuttlecock. High blood levels of ω-3 UFAs will significantly increase the percentage composition of these larger molecules in all cell membranes, causing potential instability and permeability to harmful exogenous substances such as calcium ions. The key to the potential efficacy of this approach is the ability of normal cells to compensate for such UFA-induced membrane disruption using multifaceted mechanisms and well organized membrane-supporting structures that cancer cells appear to lack.

The Curative Powers of Salt

Poland is famous for its salt hospitals – quite simply viruses and bacteria cannot exist in pure salt. Since viruses are implicated in some cancers, this is worth knowing. Some people are turning a room in their home into a salt cave – read this article
