Using Alkalizing Herbs in the Prevention, Treatment and Reversal of Any Cancerous Condition

Dr. Robert O. Young MSc., DSc., Ph.D, ND

“The cure for cancer is found in its prevention NOT in its treatment”  Dr. Robert O. Young

Abstract

An anti-cancer lifestyle and diet is an important strategy you can use to reduce your risk for ANY cancerous condition. The American Cancer Society recommends, for example, that you eat at least five servings of fruit and vegetables daily and eat the right amount of (alkaline) food to stay at a healthy weight. In addition, researchers are finding that certain plant foods or herbs may be particularly useful in protecting and reversing many cancerous condition. The following article covers several of these medicinal herbs and their benefits in the prevention and treatment of brain cancer, lung cancer, breast cancer,  blood cancers,  prostate cancer, oral cancer, liver cancer thyroid cancer, kidney cancer, bowel cancer, stomach cancer, skin cancer and pancreatic cancer.

[Key words; cancer, chemotherapy, herbs, spices, natural cancer treatments, garlic, turmeric, ginger, cayenne, alkalizing, liver disease, oral cancer, prostate cancer, blood cancer, breast cancer, thyroid cancer, stomach cancer, skin cancer, pancreatic cancer, lung cancer, bowel cancer]

Introduction

Make room in your diet for the following foods and drinks to prevent cancer.  Why?  Because an ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure.  The following are eleven herbs or spices that have been shown to be effective in the prevention, treatment and reversal of many cancerous conditions.

Garlic

[Figure 1: Cloves of garlic]

Several large studies have found that those who eat more garlic are less likely to develop various kinds of cancer, especially in digestive organs such as the esophagus, stomach, and colon. Ingredients in the pungent bulbs may keep cancer-causing substances in your body from working, or they may keep cancer cells from multiplying. I recommend a clove a day may be helpful.[1=22 ]

Cayenne Pepper

Most people know cayenne pepper for its spice. But it is actually an extraordinarily strong antioxidant and vaso-dialator. Studies have shown that by consuming cayenne pepper is highly alkaline and a powerful buffer of dietary and metabolic acids that cause cells to become cancerous. If you consume it regularly you can neutralize the acids that cause body cells to become cancerous.[23-29 ]

{Figure 2: Cyenne pepper]

Milk Thistle

Milk thistle is a crucial plant when it comes to liver health and cancer prevention. Milk thistle and the seeds from the plant can be used to eliminate acidic toxins that can bind to the liver, causing damage to the liver setting the stage for a cancerous condition. It protects the alkaline interstitial fluids that surround every body cell protecting them and indirectly preventing the formation of tumors, calcifications and/or cysts which make milk thistle a powerful antioxidant in the chelation of dietary and/or metabolic acids that cause cancer.[30-64 ]

[Figure 3: Milk Thistle]

Turmeric

 [Figure 4: Turmeric root and spice]

This orange-colored spice, a staple in Indian curries, contains an ingredient called curcumin (not the same as cumin) that might be useful in reducing cancer risk. According to the American Cancer Society, curcumin can inhibit some kinds of cancer cells in laboratory studies and slow the spread of cancer or shrink tumors in some animals. Turmeric is easy to find in grocery stores, and you can use it in a variety of recipes.[65-130 ]

Bloodroot

Bloodroot is actually used in a medicine for treating cancer named Black Salve. You can use bloodroot on its own, because it has been shown in tests to be effective in shrinking of tumors.[131-159]

[Figure 5: Bloodroot plant and flower]

Feverfew

Feverfew was used in a study at a university in New York. The study found that it was great at killing off leukemia cells, even better than the actual cancer medication.[160-191]

[Figure 6: Feverfew plant and flower]

Wheatgrass

Consuming one tiny glass of wheatgrass a day either orally or even-better rectally has shown to dramatically increase the health of cancer patients and non-cancer patients alike. It is particularly useful for people who are suffering from the side effects of chemotherapy. It will help purify the blood from dietary and/or metabolic acids, improve blood and lymph circulation, increase the oxygen levels in the microenvironments, and help the body repair and continue to reduce acids loads in the extracellular fluids, interstitial fluids and intracellular fluids to prevent and/or reverse and spoiling of the body cells.[192-204]

[Figure 7: Wheatgrass}

Ruscus Aculeatus

This herb is always known as Butchers Broom and it is great at fighting cancer due to its active ingredient, ruscogenins. The active ingredient has been proven to shrink tumors and increase the cancer fighting cells in the body.[205-221 ]

[Figure 8: Ruscus Aculeatus or Butchers Broom]

Sheep’s Sorrell

Sheep’s Sorrell can be used in people who are suffering the harmful effects of cancer medications. It helps the tissues rebuild and get back to the condition that they were in before the cancer and medication to use it was introduced. Some have suggested that it can be used to ward off cancer cells and keep them from growing.[222-224]

[Figure 9: Sheep’s Sorrel}

Astragalus

This herb is grown in China and has been proven to help with cancer on a couple of different levels. First it boosts your body’s immune system, which in turn helps it identify cancer cells. A study showed that cancer patients who took this herb survived twice as long.[225-250 ]

[Figure 10: Astragalus}

Ginger


[Figure 11: Ginger root]

A new study reveals ginger contains a pungent compound that could be up to 10,000 times more effective than conventional chemotherapy in targeting the cancer stem cells at the root of cancer malignancy. [251]

[Figure 12: Research Shows The Efficacy of Ginger Root as a non-toxic form of chemotherapy]

The authors of the study further affirm these points:

“Cancer stem cells pose serious obstacle to cancer therapy as they can be responsible for poor prognosis and tumour relapse. To add into the misery, very few chemotherapeutic compounds show promise to kill these cells. Several researchers have shown that cancer stem cells are resistant to paclitaxel, doxorubicin, 5-fluorouracil, and platinum drugs [8, 16]. CSCs are thus an almost unreachable population in tumours for chemotherapy. Therefore any compound, that shows promise towards cancer stem cells, is a highly desirable step towards cancer treatment and should be followed up for further development.”

The researchers identified a variety of ways by which 6-shagoal targets breast cancer:

  • It reduces the expression of CD44/CD24 cancer stem cell surface markers in breast cancer spheroids (3-dimensional cultures of cells modeling stem cell like cancer)
  • It significantly affects the cell cycle, resulting in increased cancer cell death
  • It induces programmed cell death primarily through the induction of autophagy, with apoptosis a secondary inducer
  • It inhibits breast cancer spheroid formation by altering Notch signaling pathway through γ-secretase inhibition.
  • It exhibits cytotoxicity (cell killing properties) against monolayer (1-dimensional cancer model) and spheroid cells (3-dimensional cancer model)

It was in evaluating the last mode of 6-shagoal’s chemotherapeutic activity and comparing it to the activity of the conventional chemotherapeutic agent taxol that the researchers discovered an astounding difference. Whereas taxol exhibited clear cytotoxicity in the one-dimensional (flat) monolayer experimental model, it had virtually no effect on the spheroid model, which is a more “real world” model reflecting the 3-dimensionality of tumors and their stem cell subpopulations. Amazingly, this held true even when the concentration of taxol was increased by four orders of magnitude:

 “In contrast [to 6-shagoal], taxol, even though was highly active in monolayer cells, did not show activity against the spheroids even at 10000 fold higher concentration compared to 6-shogoal.”

This is a highly significant finding, as it affirms a common theme in cancer research that acknowledges the primarily role of cancer stem cells: namely, while conventional techniques like surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy are effective at reducing a tumor’s size, sometimes to the point where it is “debulked,” burned,” or “poisoned” out of the body even below the threshold of re-detection, the appearance of “winning the battle” often comes at a steep price, as ultimately the cancer stem cell population regrows the tumors, now with increased vengeance and metastastic invasiveness, resulting in the cancer “winning the war.”

The monolayer model, which does not account for the complex immunity of actual cancer stem-cell based tumors against chemoagents like taxol, represents the old preclinical model of testing cancer treatments. The spheroid model, on the other hand, clearly shows that even 10,000 times higher concentrations of taxol are not capable of beating this ginger component at selectively targeting the root cause of the tumor malignancy.

In their concluding remarks, the authors point out a hugely important distinction between natural anti-cancer agents and conventional ones that have only been introduced in the past half century or so, namely, “Dietary compounds are welcome options for human diseases due to their time-tested acceptability by human bodies.”  

Unlike modern synthetically produced and patented chemicals, ginger, curcumin, garlic, and hundreds of other compounds naturally found in the human diet, have been “time-tested” as acceptable to the human body in the largest and longest running “clinical trials” known: the tens of thousands of years of direct human experience, spanning thousands of different cultures from around the world, that constitute human prehistory. These experientially-based “trials” are validated not by RCTs, or a peer-reviewed publication process, but by the fact that we all made it through this incalculably vast span of time to be alive here today. Consider also that if our ancestors made the wrong dietary choice by simply mistaking an edible berry for a poisonous one, the consequences could be deadly. This places even greater emphasis on how the “time testing” of dietary compounds was not an academic but a life-death affair, and by implication, how the information contained within various cultural traditions as “recipes” passed down from generation to generation are “epigenetic inheritance systems” no less important to our health and optimal gene expression as the DNA in our own bodies.

Ultimately, this new study adds to a growing body of research indicating that cancer stem cell targeting approaches using natural substances present in the human diet for thousands of years are far superior than chemotherapy and radiation, both of which actually increase the relative populations of cancer stem cells versus non-tumorigenic ones.[251]

Cannabis

[Figure 11: Cannabis plant with buds]

Cannabis has been making a lot of noise lately. Multiple states across the United States and countries around the world have successfully legalized medical Marijuana, and the Uruguay parliament recently voted to create the world’s first legal marijuana market.[252-256] This is good news as the health benefits of Cannabis are vast, with multiple medical and scientific studies that confirm them. On the other hand, arguments against the use of marijuana is usually published in Psychiatric journals, which show no scientific evidence that Cannabis is harmful to human health. All psychological evaluations from the intake of cannabis are largely based on assumptions, suggestions and observations (257). When we look at the actual science behind Cannabis, the health benefits can be overwhelming. So what does one who opposes the use of cannabis base their belief on? Nothing, not scientific evidence anyways. The negative stigmatism attached to marijuana is due to it’s supposed psychotropic effects, yet again, there is no scientific evidence to show that marijuana has any psychotropic effects. Nonetheless, cannabis has recently been the focus of medical research and considered as a potential therapeutic treatment and cure for cancer.Cannabis is a great example of how the human mind is programmed and conditioned to believe something. Growing up, we are told drugs are bad, which is true, however not all substances that have been labelled as “drugs” by the government are harmful. Multiple substances are labelled as a “drug” in order to protect corporate interests. One example is the automobile and energy industry, a car made from hemp is stronger than steel, and can be fuelled from hemp alone. Henry Ford demonstrated this many years ago. Hemp actually has over 50,000 uses![258]Let’s take a look at the science behind Cannabis and Cancer. Although Cannabis has been proven to be effective for a large range of ailments, this article will focus mainly on it’s effectiveness in the treatment of cancer. Cannabinoids may very well be one of the best disease and cancer fighting treatments out there. Cannabinoids refer to any of a group of related compounds that include cannabinol and the active constituents of cannabis. They activate cannabinoid receptors in the body. The body itself produces compounds called endocannabinoids and they play a role in many processes within the body that help to create a healthy environment. Cannabinoids also play a role in immune system generation and re-generation. The body regenerates best when it’s saturated with Phyto-Cannabinoids. Cannabinoids can also be found in Cannabis. It is important to note that the cannabinoids are plentiful in both hemp and cannabis. One of the main differentiations between hemp and cannabis is simply that hemp only contains 0.3% THC while cannabis is 0.4% THC or higher. (Technically they are both strains of Cannabis Sativa.)  Cannabinoids have been proven to reduce cancer cells as they have a great impact on the rebuilding of the immune system. While not every strain of cannabis has the same effect, more and more patients are seeing success in cancer reduction in a short period of time by using cannabis.While taking a look at these studies, keep in mind that cannabis can be much more effective for medicinal purposes when we eat it rather than smoking it. Below are 20 medical studies that prove cannabis can be an effective treatment and possible cure for cancer.[ [259-288] Please keep in mind that this is a very short list of studies that support the use of medicinal marijuana. Please feel free to further your research, hopefully this is a good starting point.

Brain Cancer

A study published in the British Journal of Cancerconducted by the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Complutense University in Madrid, this study determined that Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and other cannabinoids inhibit tumour growth. They were responsible for the first clinical study aimed at assessing cannabinoid antitumoral action. Cannabinoid delivery was safe and was achieved with zero psychoactive effects. THC was found to decrease tumour cells in two out of the nine patients.[289]A study published in The Journal of Neuroscience examined the biochemical events in both acute neuronal damage and in slowly progressive, neurodegenerative diseases. They conducted a magnetic resonance imaging study that looked at THC (the main active compound in marijuana) and found that it reduced neuronal injury in rats. The results of this study provide evidence that the cannabinoid system can serve to protect the brain against neurodegeneration.[290]A study published in The Journal of Pharmacology And Experimental Therapeutics already acknowledged the fact that cannabinoids have been shown to possess antitumor properties. This study examined the effect of cannabidiol (CBD, non psychoactive cannabinoid compound) on human glioma cell lines. The addition of cannabidiol led to a dramatic drop in the viability of glioma cells. Glioma is the word used to describe brain tumour.  The study concluded that cannabidiol was able to produce a significant antitumor activity.[291]A study published in the journal Molecular Cancer Therapeutics outlines how brain tumours are highly resistant to current anticancer treatments, which makes it crucial to find new therapeutic strategies aimed at improving the poor prognosis of patients suffering from this disease. This study also demonstrated the reversal of tumour activity in Glioblastoma multiforme.[292]

Breast Cancer

A study published in the US National Library of Medicine, conducted by the California Pacific Medical Centre determined that cannabidiol (CBD) inhibits human breast cancer cell proliferation and invasion. They also demonstrated that CBD significantly reduces tumour mass.[293]A study published in The Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics determined that THC as well as cannabidiol dramatically reduced breast cancer cell growth. They confirmed the potency and effectiveness of these compounds.[294]A study published in the Journal Molecular Cancer showed that THC reduced tumour growth and tumour numbers. They determined that cannabinoids inhibit cancer cell proliferation, induce cancer cell apoptosis and impair tumour angiogenesis (all good things). This study provides strong evidence for the use of cannabinoid based therapies for the management of breast cancer.[295]A study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America (PNAS) determined that cannabinoids inhibit human breast cancer cell proliferation.[296]

Lung Cancer

A study published in the journal Oncogeneby Harvard Medical Schools Experimental Medicine Department determined that THC inhibits epithelial growth factor induced lung cancer cell migration and more. They go on to state that THC should be explored as novel therapeutic molecules in controlling the growth and metastasis of certain lung cancers.[297 ]A study published by the US National Library of Medicine by the Institute of Toxicology and Pharmacology, from the Department of General Surgery in Germany determined that cannabinoids inhibit cancer cell invasion. Effects were confirmed in primary tumour cells from a lung cancer patient.  Overall, data indicated that cannabinoids decrease cancer cell invasiveness.[298 ]A study published by the US National Library of Medicine, conducted by Harvard Medical School investigated the role of cannabinoid receptors in lung cancer cells. They determined its effectiveness and suggested that it should be used for treatment against lung cancer cells.[299 ]

Prostate Cancer

A study published in the US National Library of Medicine illustrates a decrease in prostatic cancer cells by acting through cannabinoid receptors.[300]A study published in the US National Library of Medicine outlined multiple studies proving the effectiveness of cannabis on prostate cancer.[301]Another study published by the US National Library of Medicine determined that clinical testing of CBD against prostate carcinoma is a must. That cannabinoid receptor activation induces prostate carcinoma cell apoptosis. They determined that cannabidiol significantly inhibited cell viability.[302]

Blood Cancer

A study published in the journal Molecular Pharmacology recently showed that cannabinoids induce growth inhibition and apoptosis in matle cell lymphoma. The study was supported by grants from the Swedish Cancer Society, The Swedish Research Council and the Cancer Society in Stockholm.[303]A study published in the International Journal of Cancer also determined and illustrated that cannabinoids exert antiproliferative and proapoptotic effects in various types of cancer and in mantle cell lymphoma.[304]A study published in the US National Library of Medicine conducted by the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology by Virginia Commonwealth University determined that cannabinoids induce apoptosis in leukemia cells.[305]

Oral Cancer

A study published by the US National Library of Medicine results show cannabinoids are potent inhibitors of cellular respiration and are toxic to highly malignant oral Tumours. [306]

Liver Cancer

A study published by the US National Library of Medicine determined that that THC reduces the viability of human HCC cell lines (Human hepatocellular liver carcinoma cell line) and reduced the growth.[307]

Pancreatic Cancer

A study published in The American Journal of Cancer determined that cannabinoid receptors are expressed in human pancreatic tumor cell lines and tumour biopsies at much higher levels than in normal pancreatic tissue. Results showed that cannabinoid administration induced apoptosis. They also reduced the growth of tumour cells, and inhibited the spreading of pancreatic tumour cells.[308]

Conclusion

According to a 2004 report by Morgan, Ward, and Barton: “The contribution of cytotoxic chemotherapy to 5-year survival in adult malignancies. … survival in adults was estimated to be 2.3% in Australia and 2.1% in the USA.”Jun 16, 2014[309]

Medical oncologists are a long way from using medicinal herbs as an alternative or primary treatment for cancer.  The research is significant and shows that the medicinal herbs discussed in this article are extraordinary plants and have shown excellent results in the prevention, treatment and reversal of many cancerous conditions.

The Cure for Cancer? That’s an easy question to answer! The Cure for Cancer is Found in its Prevention NOT in its Treatment! – Dr. Robert O. Young

Do you know what rotten apples, grapefruit or bananas look like? If you do then you know what cancer cells look like. Cancer cells are nothing more that healthy cells that are spoiling because of a compromised environment! Look at the picture below and you will see colorized cancerous body cells rotting in their toxic acidic environment.

What compromises the internal environment of a human body that causes body cells to begin spoiling and rotting? The answer is simple! The body’s build-up of acidic metabolic and dietary waste that has not been properly eliminated through the four channels of elimination – urination, defecation, respiration and perspiration!

Cancer is not a noun but an adjective that describes what is happening to body cells in an acidic environment due to an acidic lifestyle and diet. www.phoreveryoung.com

The Incredible Power of Molecular Reduced Magnesium … Bringing Cutting Edge Nutritional Science To You Now!

Scientific Breakthrough!

The Most Powerful Selective Anti-Oxidant, Alkalizer, Energizer and Cell Hydrator in the World!

With An Instant Impact on Alkalinity, Blood Quality and Energy!

My mission is to make optimal health as easy and as cost effective as possible. I am  constantly researching to find the most effective and natural ways to achieve and maintain optimal health, fitness and vitality for myself, my family, my friends and my clients. So I am extremely excited to share with you mu latest and greatest breakthrough research in nutritional science!

My 30 years of research has shown that nearly every health condition and chronic dis-ease have three factors often associated with them:

  • Excess metabolic and dietary acidity in the interstitial body fluids
  • That excess interstitial acidity triggers tissue inflammation
  • This tissue inflammation activates cell signaling  to release anti-oxidants or acid buffers to protect the tissues, glands and organs.

Medical Science has been looking at a way of tackling these three issues for quite some time now. 

I have recently discovered that molecular activated and reduced magnesium (MgOH-) that is potentiated with lithium ions tackles all of these problems! It acts as a super anti-oxidant or a super anti-acid, a super anti-inflammatory, a super neutralizer of excess metabolic, dietary, respiratory and environmental acids, acting alone as its own cell signaling molecule!

In our body’s, activated and reduced magnesium that carries an extra electron (MgOH-) acts as a very powerful and selective anti-oxidant helping to prevent cellular damage from acid caused inflammationprotecting DNA and combating out of control metabolic and dietary acids that are the primary cause of cellular degeneration.

According to my recent research published in the medical journal, “The International Journal of Complimentary and Alternation Medicine”, entitled, “Alkalizing Nutritional Therapy in the Prevention and Reversal of Any Cancerous Condition!”, I suggest:

As deficiencies are corrected in the intracellular and interstitial fluids with key alkalizing nutritional treatments, patients see the difference  in the improved interstitial pH and chemistry counts through follow-up tests using quantitative non-invasive 3-D FBBES.  They also feel the difference physiologically and functionally with increased energy and vitality.

This is how I know proper alkalizing nutritional support in any cancerous condition is important in the prevention and treatment of cancer, the metastasis of cancer, and the shrinking of a cancerous cyst or mass without chemotherapy and-or radiation. The best part about these alkalizing nutritional treatments is they are helpful in most, if not in all cancerous conditions.”  (To read the full article go to: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/alkalizing-nutritional-therapy-prevention-reversal-any-young-6057087895716507648?trk=mp-reader-card)

There are now well over 1000 studies from peer reviewed medical journals discussing the countless health benefits from elemental magnesium.

Activated and reduced magnesium (MgOH-) has been shown to reduce inflammation and joint discomfortincrease stamina and energy.

Activated and reduced magnesium (MgOH-) has shown promise to be cardio protectiveneuro protective, offer intestinal protectionskin rejuvenation and many more conditions caused by metabolic and dietary acids that are not properly eliminated via the four channels of elimination – skin, lungs, bowels and kidneys.

Activated and reduced magnesium (MgOH-) also acts as a powerful cell signalling molecule to maintain our cellular communications system. The interference in this through excess metabolic and dietary acidity is the cause of many health and fitness problems in the body.

The Benefits of Activated and Reduced Magnesium

The health benefits of activated and reduced magnesium are new to the world.

This was because, until NOW, the delivery was only attainable through:

  • Electron-enriched ionized water (inefficiently delivered from water current electrical ionization)
  • Electrons release through hydroxyl Gas from a metallic cylinder under high pressure

The problem with these delivery systems is that electrons disappear very quickly and therefore are not very accessible to our cells to buffer or neutralize metabolic and/or dietary acids.

Basic chemistry has demonstrated that in the stomach, the generation of electrons carried by sodium bicarbonate is more complete and faster than any other means.

I took it upon myself to find some way of getting a highly accessible form of elections stabilized by magnesium that was  easy to use and highly bioavailable to the body.

I discovered the first reduced form of magnesium potentiated by lithium that would deliver a concentration of free-electron for buffering the dietary, respiratory, environmental and metabolic acids that cause ALL sickness and disease.

I have found that this is the most efficient and easiest way of getting the benefits of activated and reduced magnesium loaded with electron energy.

Benefits Include:

  • FAST RED BLOOD CELL TRANSFORMATION: Immediate improved difference which is viewable using phase contrast microscopy in just five minutes.
  • ALKALIZING EFFECTs: Pure Energy(TM) is a potent alkalizer serving to effectively neutralise all types of metabolic and dietary acids in our body including lactic acid.
  • NEGATIVE-CHARGED ORP EFFECT: Pure Energy(TM) has a high Negative-Charged Oxidative Reduction Potential.  My electron tests show an ORP of up to -1000mV!  In this case the negative-charge is good, not bad and represents a concentration of free electron energy! As we age, we oxidize or ferment, like an old car that rusts. Things that oxidize have a positive ORP or positive-charge. Therefore if we want to slow down the aging (rusting or fermenting) process, then it’s a good to ingest foods, liquids or supplements that carry a negative-charged ORP. This was only available before with an expensive water ionizers – but is now available in supplement form to all through my latest invention called Pure Energy(TM)
  • BIO-AVAILABLE:  Pure Energy(TM) is activated and reduced magnesium potentiated with lithium and is 100% bio-available, so it will act on ALL of the body’s fluids, tissues, glands and organs.
  • ANTI-INFLAMMATORY: Pure Energy(TM) acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory in the body because it neutralizes the metabolic, respiratory, dietary and environmental acids that cause inflammation.
  • ENHANCED CELLULAR HYDRATION: Pure Energy(TM) has been shown to increase cellular hydration by enhancing the ability to move alkalizing extracellular water into the cell.
  • ENERGY PRODUCTION: Pure Energy(TM) when added to distilled or purified water will activate and reduce and potentiated with lithium as it releases electron-energy which becomes available to the mitochondria in our cells.  Activated and reduced magnesium potentiated with lithium also increases electron stores in the liver and may improve functioning of all organs in the body by increasing stores of available electron energy.
  • ANTI-AGING: Aging is created by the body being broken down by metabolic and dietary acids. By having a continual supply of electrons released from activated and reduced magnesium potentiated with lithium, the body can use the increased electrons to neutralize the acids that cause aging and slow down the aging process.
  • SPORTS RECOVERY & LEGAL PERFORMANCE ENHANCER: By increasing alkalizing cellular hydration, reducing the acids that cause inflammation and most importantly reducing the lactic acid by up to 18% that causes inflammation that leads to pain, Pure Energy(TM) is a powerful (and fully permittedsports performance and recovery enhancer.
  • POWERFUL ANTIOXIDANT: Due to its extremely small size (0.24 Trillionth of a Meter), it can spread throughout the body in seconds and penetrate all tissue, cells, and cell components providing rapid protection from metabolic and dietary acids.
  • SELECTIVE ANTIOXIDANT: Activated and reduced magnesium has special SELECTIVE properties that allow the abundant release of electrons to deal with the “bad” acid but leave the “good” alkalizing buffers, such as sodium bicarbonate and hydrogen peroxide to do their tissue protective jobs.
  • HOLISTIC ANTIOXIDANT: Due to its molecular size, Pure Energy(TM) can provide protection to the inside and outside of body cellsexternal surface of the cell membrane (lipid-bi-layer), the extra-cellular matrixplasmainterstitial fluids and all external surfaces of cells, organs, and all tissue.
  • PURE ENERGY(TM) ENABLES THE PRODUCTION OF YOUR BODY’S OWN ANTIOXIDANTS: Acts as a natural Nrf2 transcription factor activator that allows the body to make its own antioxidant compounds (e.g., superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase, and glutathione peroxidase).
  • CELL SIGNALLING: Cell signalling is a way the body can send a message to different parts of the body to supply it with required red blood cells. The released hydroxyl ions or OH- that releases an extra electron has recently been found to act as a cell signalling molecule.  The release of this electron from reduced and activated magnesium acts as a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.
  • NATURAL & SAFEPure Energy(TM) contains natural mineral ingredients and tested to be 100% safe, even at high doses. There are no known negative direct or side-effects.
  • Pure Energy(TM) can ONLY be obtained by calling this special phone number: 760-484-3797 or you can order on line at: http://store.phoreveryoung.com/products/pure-energy?variant=10089006916, or email us at: phmiraclelife@gmail.com

How To Prepare the Pure Energy(TM) Magnesium for Activation and Reduction:

1) Take a 12 ounce surgical stainless steel bottle and fill the bottle to the top with distilled or purified water.  Make sure there is no air at the top of the bottle where electrons might escape.

2) Drop one Pure Energy(TM) magnesium tablet in the water and immediately seal the bottle with the screw on top in order to trap all the electrons inside.

3) Let the distilled or purified water sit for 2 hours while the magnesium activates and reduces.

4) When you are ready to drink the Pure Energy(TM) activated and reduced magnesium water you can take off the lid or you can flip up the straw to drink.  Drink the whole 12 ounces once opened.

Please note that the Pure Energy(R) activated reduced magnesium water is stable and drinkable for up to 1 year as long as the cap or the lid has not been opened.

Recommendations:

Drink one 12 ounce Pure Energy(TM) activated reduced magnesium water in the morning and one 12 ounce Pure Energy(TM) activated reduced magnesium water in the afternoon.

GcMAF INVESTIGATION: Three days before Dr. Bradstreet was found dead in a river, U.S. govt. agents raided his research facility to seize a breakthrough cancer treatment called GcMAF

GcMAF

INVESTIGATION: Three days before Dr. Bradstreet was found dead in a river, U.S. govt. agents raided his research facility to seize a breakthrough cancer treatment called GcMAF

(NaturalNews) The history of the suppression of medical science in America is a long one, filled with true accounts of pioneering doctors and clinicians being threatened, intimidated and even assassinated in order to bury emerging cures and keep the “sick care” industry in control. (The American Medical Association, for example, has been found guilty by the U.S. federal courts of a conspiracy to destroy the chiropractic industry, by the way.)

Over the last few days, we’ve learned that before being found shot in the chest and floating in the river, pioneering medical researcher Dr. Bradstreet was working with a little-known molecule that occurs naturally in the human body. Called, “GcMAF”, this molecule has the potential to be a universal cancer cure for many people. It has also been shown to reverse signs of autism in the vast majority of patients receiving the treatment.

While GcMAF is perfectly legal as a treatment in dozens of advanced nations around the world, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has outlawed it, calling it an “unapproved drug.” It is with this designation — an effort to suppress the forward progress of medical science — that the U.S. government conducted a raid on Dr. Bradstreet’s clinic, specifically seeking to confiscate GcMAF in order to shut down his research and halt his treatment of patients. Meanwhile, Big Pharma gets special permission to unleash untested, experimental drugs on the public as long as those drugs earn sufficient profits (http://www.naturalnews.com/044197_FDA-approved_drugs_Big_Pharma_scientific_evidence.html).

In this article, I summarize the videos, articles and documents covering GcMAF and the mysterious death of Dr. Bradstreet. An exhaustive investigation needs to be pursued on this matter, possibly involving private investigators. The timing and manner of Dr. Bradstreet’s death seems highly suspicious, especially in light of the many other holistic doctors who have recently been found dead under mysterious circumstances. (Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez died just days ago…)

Motive to murder medical researchers and suppress a promising cancer treatment breakthrough

Is there a motive for the murder of pioneering cancer researchers working on a possible universal cancer cure? Of course there is… it’s the most common motive in the world: MONEY.

A universal cancer cure would destroy the profitability of the highly lucrative cancer industry and collapse the American Cancer Society, hospitals, oncology clinics and pharmaceutical companies that depend on chemotherapy revenues to stay profitable. Key to their profitability is the inescapable fact that conventional cancer treatments simply don’t work most of the time (http://www.naturalnews.com/033847_chemotherapy_cancer_treatments.html), creating a reliable profit stream of repeat business from patients who are never cured (by design).

Would the cancer industry murder doctors to protect its profits? Of course it would. The industry kills patients as a routine part of its business operations! For example, an oncologist named Farid Fata was recently sentenced to 56 years in prison for falsely diagnosing patients with cancer so that he could sell them chemotherapy treatments they didn’t need. See the article Cancer doctors ‘fess up to making false diagnoses just to make more money.

INVESTIGATION: Here’s what we know so far

Multiple hat tips to all the outstanding citizen journalists, video creators and bloggers who have created the items cited below:

U.S. govt. search warrant document served against Dr. Jeffrey Bradstreet to confiscate GcMAF from his research facility (http://www.naturalnews.com/files/GCMAF-Bradstreet-Search-Warrant.pdf).

Video that connects the dots between Dr. Bradstreet, GcMAF, cancer cures and the suppression of medical science by the U.S. government.

Video detailing the Dr. Bradstreet search warrant, served June 30 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0v3IA2Hj1TA), during which the U.S. government seized GcMAF from Dr. Bradstreet’s research clinic:

HealthNutNews story that covers the apparent series of murders of holistic doctors, many of whom are working on advanced treatment protocols that render high-profit sectors of conventional medicine OBSOLETE:

Yet another doctor was just found murdered inside his home here on the East Coast of Florida. This makes six doctors to be found dead in the last month just from this region of the country alone. Four out of the six were found dead here in Florida. We lost the holistic Dr. Teresa Sievers, MD, who was found murdered in her Florida home just weeks ago. We’ve also lost the alternative Dr. Jeff Bradstreet, MD, who was found in a river with a gunshot to his chest. He’d recently moved to Georgia from Florida. We’ve also lost the Osteopath. Dr. Riley, who was found in Georgia at her home; just a few hours from the Florida border. She was found with a gunshot wound to her head.

Now we’ve lost Dr. Schwartz MD, who was found murdered in his home, on Sunday, July 19th, 2015. This was four weeks to the day after the death of the first physician: (Dr. Bradstreet MD) who I broke the story on a month ago. His family is still seeking answers as to what happened to him and they’re some of the kindest people I know. The latest MD, Dr. Schwartz, in the picture above, lived just north of the fit, healthy, holistic Dr. Hedendal; who was the second doctor to be found dead this past Father’s Day, in Boca Raton. This was the same day that Dr. Holt died at the age of 33. Both were fathers; and again, both men died here in Florida on June 21st, 2015.

SCIENCE.NaturalNews.com entry describing the extraordinary benefits of GcMAF in a published study (http://science.naturalnews.com/2008/4030259_Immunotherapy_of_metastatic_breast_cancer_patients_with_vitamin_D_binding.html):

Stepwise incubation of purified Gc protein with immobilized beta-galactosidase and sialidase generated probably the most potent macrophage activating factor (termed GcMAF) ever discovered, which produces no adverse effect in humans…

After about 16-22 administrations (approximately 3.5-5 months) of GcMAF, these patients had insignificantly low serum enzyme levels equivalent to healthy control enzyme levels, ranging from 0.38 to 0.63 nmole/min/mg protein, indicating eradication of the tumors. This therapeutic procedure resulted in no recurrence for more than 4 years.

In other words, the administration of GcMAF eradicated tumors and left patients cancer-free for 4+ years with no additional treatment!

Both U.S. and UK governments desperately seizing all supply, shutting down clinics, even as millions die from cancer every decade…

UK govt. admission that GcMAF was on track to being commercialized as a pioneering cancer treatment (http://www.gov.uk/government/news/regulator-warns-against-gcmaf-made-in-unlicensed-facility-in-cambridgeshire), so they had to confiscate it!

GcMAF (Globulin component Macrophage Activating Factor), a blood product, claims to treat a range of conditions including cancer, HIV and autism…

More than 10,000 vials were seized at this site and production of this unlicensed medicine has now ceased.

GcMAF is readily available as a medical treatment in Japan (http://www.saisei-mirai.or.jp/gan/index_eng.html). This site explains:

GcMAF (Gc Protein derived Macrophage Activating Factor) – Gc MAF treatment is a highly effective macrophage activating therapy, used to stimulate the immune system and activate macrophages so that they can destroy cancer cells and other abnormal cells in the body.

From the FAQ page of the treatment clinic (http://www.saisei-mirai.or.jp/gan/macrophage_gcmaf_faq_eng.html):

What exactly is Second Generation GcMAF?
High Dose Second Generation Gc-MAF is produced using our new Patent Pending process which was developed here in Japan by Saisei Mirai in collaboration with Dr Hitoshi Hori and Dr Yoshihiro Uto at the University of Tokushima who have been studying GcMAF for over 20 years. Studies on GcMAF began at the University of Tokushima in 1992, after they were introduced to Dr Nobuto Yamamoto’s work and a collaboration began…

Second Generation GcMAF is made using a new and improved 2nd generation method of Gc-MAF production which is 10-20 times more concentrated and is more active and stable than other GcMAF that is currently available. Importantly, this much higher concentration GcMAF has been clinically demonstrated to be largely free of any side effects in the great majority of patients and is much more stable because it is resistant to oxidation.

That same site describes Oral GcMAF as follows: “Oral GcMAF is a form of GcMAF produced from bovine colostrum by Saisei Mirai which was developed in collaboration with Tokushima University.”

It also lists the following health conditions as being treatable with GcMAF, potentially a “universal cancer cure” substance:

Gc-MAF and/or oral Colostrum MAF macrophage activation therapy is indicated in the treatment of any diseases where there is immune dysfunction or where the immune system is compromised, such as:

Cancer
Autoimmune diseases
Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV)
Hepatitis B virus (HBV)
Herpes Simplex virus (HSV)
Cystitis
Hepatitis C virus (HCV)
Multiple sclerosis (MS)
Urinary tract infection (UTI)
Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD)
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA)
Endometriosis
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)
Lyme disease (Lyme borreliosis)
IgA deficiency disorder
Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME)
Mycobacteria infections
Parkinson’s disease
Tuberculosis
Fibromyalgia
Human papillomavirus (HPV)
Lupus (Systemic lupus erythematosus, SLE)
HIV AIDS
Dengue fever
Pneumonia infection
Warts caused by viral infection
Norovirus
Malaria Influenza virus (flu)
Herpes simplex virus (HSV)
Q fever (Coxiella burnetii)
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
Chicken pox (varicella zoster virus)
Psoriasis
Respiratory tract infections
Ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease
Type 1 diabetes (T1DM), insulin-dependent diabetes (IDDM)
Type 1.5 diabetes, Latent autoimmune diabetes of adults (LADA)

Do you see yet why the medical establishment must SUPPRESS GcMAF and destroy all knowledge of its clinical applications? This one substance holds the potential to render numerous vaccines and pharmaceuticals utterly obsolete.

GcMAF protein described at NaturalHealth365.com:

Researchers and practitioners have demonstrated that GcMAF can reverse diseases that attack the immune system such as: chronic inflammation, bacterial and viral infections, chronic herpes, chronic acne, Lyme disease, fibromyalgia osteoporosis, Hodgkin’s, Lupus, MS, Parkinson’s and remarkably – autism.

A clinical study out of Italy on 94 children with autism showed that 83 of them made considerable progress while on GcMAF. The most common reported improvements involve:

• Cognitive abilities including attention and focus, learning and understanding, receptiveness and awareness of the environment and both receptive and expressive language gains.

• Social Skills including willingness to interact and communicate with peers.

• Behavior including less hyperactivity, less stereotypical behaviors and improved cooperation and compliance.

In another study of 1500 children with autism, 85% had high levels of viruses and a compromised immune system. All 1500 received weekly GcMAF injections and 70% of the children responded to the treatment with reduced symptoms and another 15% made full recoveries. The other 15% did not respond.

It was stated that the reduction of autistic symptoms is permanent provided that GcMAF has been taken long enough for the body to produce its own GcMAF which typically takes 24 weeks.

The systematic suppression of medical science to protect the lucrative cancer treatment industry (chemotherapy, oncology, radiotherapy, etc.)

ANH-EUROPE.org covers the systematic suppression of advanced cancer treatments and cures (http://anh-europe.org/news/how-maverick-cancer-treatments-are-suppressed-by-the-mainstream):

Back in 1993, Nobuto Yamamoto, then working at Temple University School of Medicine in Philadelphia, PA, USA, first described a remarkable molecule. His paper reported the conversion of vitamin D3 binding protein (DBP, known in humans as Gc) into a potent macrophage-activating factor (MAF), known as Gc-MAF. Macrophages are a key part of the human immune system with two roles: to engulf and destroy pathogens and cellular debris, and to recruit other immune cells to respond to the pathogen.

Gc-MAF hasn’t had the benefit of a single patent owner – as a natural molecule, it cannot be patented without being modified – with the will and resources to push it under the noses of the public and health authorities. Dr Yamamoto has run small human trials in breast, prostate and colorectal cancers, with promising results.

David Noakes might just be the person to bring Gc-MAF into the mainstream. He’s the CEO of Immuno Biotech Ltd. and spokesperson for First Immune Gc-MAF, a project he describes as, “PhD and BSc biochemists and biomedical scientists… with external doctors, oncologists and scientists who kindly provide advice, committed to bringing some of the increasing number of published but relatively unused medical cures to as many people as we can.” At the moment, Noakes and his colleagues are supplying Gc-MAF to 30 countries where it is legal, via a network of “around 300” doctors. Their Gc-MAF is made to extremely high standards, and is being used in ongoing clinical research by Noakes’ collaborators and others. Their ultimate goal is to, “Build the case that GcMAF is effective for various illnesses, which will help to make it available to the public”.

GcMAF suppliers fighting for survival against a global medical monopoly that profits from disease

MUST-SEE website: http://gcmaf.se/

From the site:

The medical laws have been changed over the last 40 years so that all the brilliant breakthroughs in cancer are denied to the British public. Lord Maurice Saatchi had to watch his wife die, while his doctor told him the only thing he was allowed to prescribe her was chemotherapy, which would shorten her life. He hopes to bring the Medical Innovation Bill to Parliament, so instead of obeying a destructive government law, a doctor will be able to prescribe whatever treatment is best for the patient…

Bad law kills, and Britain has the worst medical laws in Europe. The 1939 Cancer Act makes it illegal to discuss the possibility cancer can be cured, which is partly why 160,000 people die unnecessarily of cancer in Britain every year. Science and treatments are decades ahead of where the medical industry is today. The MHRA’s job is to get life saving treatments like GcMAF out to people as quickly as possible. Instead they block them to protect billion dollar Big Pharma monopolies, who also fund the MHRA. Over a hundred thousand lives could be saved every year if the 1939 Cancer Act were repealed, and the MHRA were closed down.

There are 142 eminent scientists who have published GcMAF research papers on the US National Library of Medicine alone.

From the how GcMAF works page(https://gcmaf.se/gcmaf-science/how-gcmaf-works/):

Your GcMAF empowers your body to cure itself. In a healthy person your own GcMAF has 11 actions discovered so far, including two on cells, three excellent effects on the brain, and 6 on cancer. Amongst these it acts as a “director” of your immune system. But viruses and malignant cells like cancer send out an enzyme called Nagalase that prevents production of your GcMAF: that stops its 11 beneficial effects, and neutralises your immune system. So diseases become chronic, and cancer cells grow unchecked.

Minutes after a receiving a dose, 10 of the body’s actions restart. In three weeks of two GcMAF 0.25ml doses a week, your immune system is rebuilt to above normal strength. You need two doses a week for typically 24 weeks for many diseases and early cancers, up to seven one ml doses a week and a year for stage 4 cancers. Your body then takes the disease down without side effects, and successfully in 80% of cases -depending upon how well you follow the protocol under “Treatment Protocol” on this website.

What is GcMAF?
It is a human protein. One week’s GcMAF looks like a small raindrop. If properly produced it is perfectly sterile, and a most ethical course for doctors.

GcMAF is therefore a replacement therapy for those who can’t make their own. Taking GcMAF replaces the missing part of the immune system, and also acts as the body’s own internal medicine.

GcMAF is extracted and isolated; its a 24 step process, and at the end it must have tests to prove its sterility and activity. (If it does not come with published tests, its probably not GcMAF.) One GcMAF has been tested in universities, laboratories and clinics, where, as a result of the testing, consistent activity and sterility have always been found, and been the subject of 40 scientific research papers.

What does GcMAF do?
The GcMAF Conference 2013 showed GcMAF is a far more powerful molecule than thought, both in terms of the science, and doctors’ results. In stage 4 cancer, some doctors who use the full protocol, listed on “Treatment Strategies,” are saving every patient (if they have not had chemotherapy.) Success can be achieved with all tumour cancers including breast, lung, prostate, pancreatic and melanoma.

GcMAF can eradicate chronic inflammation and viral infections. It is better than antibiotics in many areas, and 25% successful with Autism, 50% or more with Chronic Herpes, Chronic Acne, Chronic cirrhosis of the liver, Chronic kidney disease, Chronic depression, Colitis, Crohn’s, Fibromyalgia, Hepatitis, Herpes, LMBBS, ME/CFS, Osteoporosis, Periodontal disease, Psoriasis and various types of Immune dysfunction including allergies. Research shows GcMAF can halt deterioration in Parkinsons, multiple sclerosis (MS), dementia and ALS, and in its role of immune system regulator, can reverse diseases that attack the immune system like Lupus and Arthritis. And is effective with wound healing. Its successful with tumour cancers, and some others.

In addition to rebuilding a depressed immune system, GcMAF:
Inhibits angiogenesis – stops blood supply to tumours
Activates macrophages – phagocytosis and destruction of cancer cells
Apoptosis – suicide of cancer cells
Reverts the cancer cell phenotype to normal (Turns cancer cells into healthy cells)
Reduces the metastatic potential of human cancer cells in culture.
Increases energy production at the mitochondrial level – ME/CFS
Improves human neuronal metabolic activity through cAMP signaling – autism, ME/CFS, MS, ALS
Counters toxic effects including cadmium – ME/CFS

It abolishes neuropathic pain due to neuro-oxidative stress (stress due to the anti-cancer drug oxaliplatin) in the lab. (neurodegenerative diseases and autism that have oxidative stress as a pathogenetic mechanism)
It increases neuronal connectivity by promoting differentiation and the formation of dendrites and neuritis (autism and ME/CFS, where there is a lack of connectivity between neurons).

See the 31 research papers published, particularly Brescia, and the 60 published by others listed under “The science”.

80% of terminal stage four tumour cancers cases can be saved (40% if they’ve had chemo), but usually when they are closely monitored, which is why residential Treatment Centres are being run in Switzerland. If they have three months to live and have not had chemo, almost no one needs to be lost.

The 180 scientists who have published papers on trials of GcMAF selected those in the early stages of cancer and HIV, and reported nearly 100 percent success, with no recurrence after many years. They did not attempt trials on people with large tumours.

Our trials are quite different: many people are over 50, some over 80, with advanced or terminal cancers, with significant tumour mass. Most come to us when their doctors tell them they can do no more.

The life of GcMAF is only six days – you have to keep taking it until your disease has gone (ie your nagalase is under 0.65 nmol/min/mg) then a further 8 weeks, or the immune system gets shut down again.

How long should you take GcMAF for?
8 weeks for chronic herpes/acne, fibromyalgia, inflammation.
Allow 24 weeks plus of GcMAF for: Autism (85% improve, 25% eradication), CFS (70% eradication), HIV, Lyme (8% respond, most appear to have the VDR gene blocked and the viruses conceal themselves with biofilms) and stage 1 to 2 cancer, (80% respond).
Late stage cancer, if you follow “Treatment Protocol” again has 80% responders, but it takes a year to 18 months to become cancer free.
Cirrhosis of the liver: 16 months

Remember everyone responds differently. We can’t say how you will respond.

The more minor the disease, the easier it is for GcMAF to eradicate. GcMAF needs normal levels of vitamin D to function strongly (take 10,000iu a day). in low responders, larger doses are required.

We have probably proved GcMAF can work for people up to age 90, and can destroy large tumour mass. See “Participants experiences”.

If you have your blood taken for monocyte counts, relevant markers and vitamin D levels, and again for a nagalase test at the beginning, you should see on your next test after three weeks that your immune system is back to full strength, and after 8 weeks significantly falling nagalase will indicate the disease is losing its grip. Don’t stop the GcMAF until your nagalase gets below 0.65 nmol/min/mg, when it loses the ability to prevent your body producing your own GcMAF, and then you no longer need ours. Even better, get scans.

Autism children can improve at five weeks with substantial improvements at 8 weeks. See “Participants experiences.” But everyone is different.

The beauty of using your own immune system to attack disease or cancer is that it remembers how to defeat it for the rest of your life: it doesn’t come back. And unlike chemotherapy, the side effects are trivial.

The only way you can tell if GcMAF is genuine and active is to test with living cells in a laboratory. See “Quality and Tests of our GcMAF.” To recap:

We put live macrophages cells and MCF7 breast cancer cells together; nothing happens. Then we add GcMAF; in 72 hours the macrophages eat all the MCF7 cancer cells. We then put only GcMAF and MCF7 together, and the GcMAF turns the cancer cells back into healthy cells.

We have GcMAF available for preclinical trials. See “Buy GcMAF”.

You must read at least all of “Buy GcMAF” and “Treatment strategies” on the left if you want to take this further. And you must be prepared to give us feedback.

Patent document on GcMAF

See the Yamamoto patent involving GcMAF (http://www.google.com/patents/US5620846):

Cancerous cells and HIV-infected cells secrete -N-acetylgalactosaminidase into the blood stream, resulting in deglycosylation of serum Gc protein. This inactivates the MAF precursor activity of Gc protein, leading to immunosuppression… When peripheral blood monocytes/macrophages of 175 cancer patients bearing various types of cancer were treated in vitro with 100 pg GcMAF/ml, monocytes/macrophages (phagocytes) of all cancer patients were activated for phagocytic and superoxide generating capacity. This observation indicates that patient phagocytes are capable of being activated… 

Also see BetterHealthGuy.com coverage on GcMAF:

first heard about GcMAF almost a year ago. At the same time, I had first learned about “nagalase”, a blood test that is used to in part determine whether or not one might be a candidate for GcMAF therapy. Nagalase is an enzyme that prevents Vitamin D receptors (VDR) from being activated on the surface of the macrophage. As a result, macrophages are not “activated” and our immune systems are not able to properly respond to invaders.

Here are some points that I have learned thus far on GcMAF:

– GcMAF has reportedly been tested more for safety, purity, etc. than other human blood products.
– Macrophages are cultured, destroyed, and the GcMAF receptors are purified.
– Treatment is via injection 1x/week for 8-20 weeks. Dose is titrated initially to avoid exacerbation or Herx responses as much as possible.
– A commonly used dose is .25ml once weekly (a 2.2 ml vial should last 8 injections).
– The primary test used in looking at whether or not GcMAF may be a reasonable intervention is nagalase.
– Nagalase inactivates macrophages.
– I personally would NEVER consider this option without having a baseline nagalase test. Normal is < 0.95. Mine was 2.9.

The practitioner I worked with suggested that 2.9 was in the range of someone with HIV or cancer in terms of the impact on the immune system. I’d like to hear from others in the Lyme community as you get test results as well to see if there is a pattern of elevated nagalase in those with Lyme disease. Whether or not Lyme itself has anything to do with nagalase elevation is something I have not been able to find anything on. We certainly all have underlying viral co-factors that are likely in play as well, but I suspect that Borrelia may also play a role in nagalase elevation.

– In healthy college students, a nagalase 0.4 is not uncommon (the lower the better).

– At 2.9, my practitioner was surprised that I did not have more cognitive deficits such as memory loss and other cognitive issues.

– It has been suggested that ongoing antimicrobial therapy without a working immune system is like leaving the house with the door wide open inviting burglars in. By using GcMAF to activate macrophages, nagalase drops, and one may regain a functional immune system. The door is then closed to further invaders and we may no longer serve as a microbe hotel.

– Maintenance therapy should not be needed once the immune system is once again properly functioning.

– Activated macrophages only remain active for 7 days so any negative responses are generally short-lived. That said, some people do have strong inflammatory responses that are not believed to be typical die-off reactions.

– It has been indicated that in some cases, other medications may be needed in order to manage the inflammatory response. This is another reason that one needs to be working closely with a knowledgeable practitioner before considering GcMAF in my opinion. In the CFS and GcMAF world, this more severe form of a die-off reaction is called IRIS.

– VDR genetics do not seem to play a role in predicting response as earlier thought according to one practitioner that I have spoken with. That said, Vitamin D levels do correlate with the positive response rate of GcMAF. Thus, Vitamin D supplementation may be required in order to optimize outcome.

– Other than die-off reactions or activation of symptoms (inflammation), no other side effects are generally expected.

– Nagalase should be monitored every 1-2 months while on treatment to determine the required duration of the therapy. Target nagalase after treatment would be 0.4 to 0.6.

– Elevated nagalase has a profound detrimental effect on the immune system. Elevated nagalase is often presumed to be related to microbes of viral origin or cancer. Viruses that are nagalase producers open the door to chronic infections.

– Hemagglutinin contains nagalase and is also found in flagella of some bacteria so it could also be the case that some bacteria may produce nagalase.

– Parents with ASD children also often have elevated nagalase.

– A practitioner I spoke with likened Lyme disease to a “peat moss fire” burning below the surface. Activating macrophages should help to deal with the fire.

– GcMAF should be helpful in dealing with other infections that are not of viral origin; for example, Borrelia, Bartonella, and other infections commonly associated with Tick-Borne Infections (TBIs). GcMAF is active against many cancers and many different kinds of microbes.

– Neopterin is another test that is sometimes used as an indicator of immune suppression. As macrophages become activated, neopterin may rise and later fall. If one is in the normal range for neopterin and has an immune-related illness, this could be an indication that the immune system is suppressed and not responding appropriately.

– People with autoimmune conditions can generally use GcMAF. However, GcMAF may be contraindicated in people with Multiple Sclerosis.

– Reduction in nagalase is generally seen early in the course of treatment; within the first 3-6 weeks. In some studies, nagalase dropped by over 50% in less than six weeks.

– Cancer patients may initially feel as bad on GcMAF as they do on chemotherapy, but often feel much better after the first month.

– Anti-inflammatories may limited the effect of GcMAF.

– Enzymes and biofilm-reducing supplements may have a negative impact on GcMAF therapy and may be best avoided. It is still too early to know what the impact may be, but one practitioner I spoke with feels that it is best to avoid these.

– One should not be on any immune-suppressing agents while on GcMAF as the immune system must be partially functional in order to respond appropriately to the treatment.

– A common pattern is to see elevated lymphocytes, high nagalase, and low NK cells. Once nagalase drops, it may be the case that NK cell function could be positively impacted. CD57 is a type of NK cell. It is too early to know if this proves to be true, but it is one of the things I’m quite interested in.

Researchers testing GcMAF stated it, “works 100% of the time to eradicate cancer completely, and cancer does not recur even years later.” (This was stated based on the tested group of patients -nothing works 100% for everyone) The weekly injection GcMAF, a harmless glyco-protein activates the human immune system which then can kill the growing cancer. Studies among breast cancer and colon cancer patients produced complete remissions lasting 4 and 7 years respectively. This glyco-protein ‘cure’ is totally without side effect but currently goes unused and completely ignored by cancer doctors. Why? Maybe it is because there is little money to be made in selling it. For less than $2000USD a cancer patient can obtain an adequate amount of GcMAC.

See the National Library of Medicine page Immunotherapy for Prostate Cancer with Gc Protein-Derived Macrophage-Activating Factor, GcMAF (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2510818/):

When human macrophages were treated in vitro with 100 pg GcMAF/ml for 3 hours and a prostate cancer cell line LNCaP was added with an effector/target ratio of 1.5, approximately 51% and 82% of LNCaP cells were killed by 4 and 18 hours of incubation, respectively [14,15]. This in vitro tumoricidal capacity of macrophages activated by GcMAF led us to investigate the therapeutic efficacy of GcMAF for prostate cancer. GcMAF therapy as a single remedy modality can eradicate metastatic breast and colorectal cancers most effectively

The Number 1 Cause of Breast Cancer Around the World!

The Number 1 Cause of Breast Cancer Around the World!
Dr. Robert Young

 M.Sc., D.Sc., Ph.D., N.D.

Naturopathic Physician at the pH Miracle Ti Sana Medical Spa, Arlate, Italy

According to the findings of a Norwegian study, individuals who consume three glass of milk daily, have a two times increased risk of breast cancer in comparison to the ones who consume half a cup, or less.

Unfortunately, the breast cancer is in expansion and we are all aware of it. If we take into consideration a whole range of factors, it turns out that milk could be responsible for the increased risk of this disease. Initially, it was thought that milk only accelerates the development of an already existent cancer, but the Norwegian scientists claim that apart from that, it is the main culprit for its occurrence in the first place.

United States, Sweden, Finland, Canada, and Britain are the countries in which most cases of breast cancer are identified. Interestingly, the consumption of milk takes top position particularly in these countries. On the other hand, breast cancer is an extremely rare occurrence or it doesn’t exist at all in countries where milk of animal origin is used. As mentioned in the very beginning, women who tend to drink three glasses of milk a day are more likely to develop a breast cancer in comparison to the ones drinking only half a cup.

Acidic waste products from glandular function called hormones and growth factors in milk are known to have carcinogenic content, and the same was proved for synthetic supplements of vitamin D, which milk is often enriched with. In general, patients consume two times more synthetic vitamin D than others.

However, these causes for the development of breast cancer are not the only ones. It was noted that the number of cases is growing with the increase of sugar, pastries, and some types of meat, such as pork. On the other hand, the consumption of fish and raw vegetables leads to significant decline.

Finally, there are the bras, especially the tight ones, which increase the risk as well. Women, who wear a bra at least 12 hours daily, increase the risk by more than 20% in comparison to the ones who use them moderately, rarely, or never. This especially refers to bras which contain plastic elements or metal.

Ginger is 10,000x More Effective Than Chemotherapy in the Treatment of Cancer!

Ginger is 10,000x More Effective Than Chemotherapy in the Treatment of Cancer!

Dr. Robert Young

 MSc., DSc., Ph.D., ND

Naturopathic Physician at the pH Miracle Ti Sana Medical Spa, Arlate, Italy

Ginger is 10,000x More Effective Than Chemotherapy in the Treatment of Cancer!

A new study reveals ginger contains a pungent compound that could be up to 10,000 times more effective than conventional chemotherapy in targeting the cancer stem cells at the root of cancer malignancy. 

The authors of the study further affirm these points:

“Cancer stem cells pose serious obstacle to cancer therapy as they can be responsible for poor prognosis and tumour relapse. To add into the misery, very few chemotherapeutic compounds show promise to kill these cells. Several researchers have shown that cancer stem cells are resistant to paclitaxel, doxorubicin, 5-fluorouracil, and platinum drugs [8, 16]. CSCs are thus an almost unreachable population in tumours for chemotherapy. Therefore any compound, that shows promise towards cancer stem cells, is a highly desirable step towards cancer treatment and should be followed up for further development.”

The researchers identified a variety of ways by which 6-shagoal targets breast cancer:

  • It reduces the expression of CD44/CD24 cancer stem cell surface markers in breast cancer spheroids (3-dimensional cultures of cells modeling stem cell like cancer)
  • It significantly affects the cell cycle, resulting in increased cancer cell death
  • It induces programmed cell death primarily through the induction of autophagy, with apoptosis a secondary inducer
  • It inhibits breast cancer spheroid formation by altering Notch signaling pathway through γ-secretase inhibition.
  • It exhibits cytotoxicity (cell killing properties) against monolayer (1-dimensional cancer model) and spheroid cells (3-dimensional cancer model)

It was in evaluating the last mode of 6-shagoal’s chemotherapeutic activity and comparing it to the activity of the conventional chemotherapeutic agent taxol that the researchers discovered an astounding difference. Whereas taxol exhibited clear cytotoxicity in the one-dimensional (flat) monolayer experimental model, it had virtually no effect on the spheroid model, which is a more “real world” model reflecting the 3-dimensionality of tumors and their stem cell subpopulations. Amazingly, this held true even when the concentration of taxol was increased by four orders of magnitude:

 “In contrast [to 6-shagoal], taxol, even though was highly active in monolayer cells, did not show activity against the spheroids even at 10000 fold higher concentration compared to 6-shogoal.”

This is a highly significant finding, as it affirms a common theme in cancer research that acknowledges the primarily role of cancer stem cells: namely, while conventional techniques like surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy are effective at reducing a tumor’s size, sometimes to the point where it is “debulked,” burned,” or “poisoned” out of the body even below the threshold of re-detection, the appearance of “winning the battle” often comes at a steep price, as ultimately the cancer stem cell population regrows the tumors, now with increased vengeance and metastastic invasiveness, resulting in the cancer “winning the war.”

The monolayer model, which does not account for the complex immunity of actual cancer stem-cell based tumors against chemoagents like taxol, represents the old preclinical model of testing cancer treatments. The spheroid model, on the other hand, clearly shows that even 10,000 times higher concentrations of taxol are not capable of beating this ginger component at selectively targeting the root cause of the tumor malignancy.

In their concluding remarks, the authors point out a hugely important distinction between natural anti-cancer agents and conventional ones that have only been introduced in the past half century or so, namely, “Dietary compounds are welcome options for human diseases due to their time-tested acceptability by human bodies.”  

Unlike modern synthetically produced and patented chemicals, ginger, curcumin, green tea, and hundreds of other compounds naturally found in the human diet, have been “time-tested” as acceptable to the human body in the largest and longest running “clinical trials” known: the tens of thousands of years of direct human experience, spanning thousands of different cultures from around the world, that constitute human prehistory. These experientially-based “trials” are validated not by RCTs, or a peer-reviewed publication process, but by the fact that we all made it through this incalculably vast span of time to be alive here today. Consider also that if our ancestors made the wrong dietary choice by simply mistaking an edible berry for a poisonous one, the consequences could be deadly. This places even greater emphasis on how the “time testing” of dietary compounds was not an academic but a life-death affair, and by implication, how the information contained within various cultural traditions as “recipes” passed down from generation to generation are “epigenetic inheritance systems” no less important to our health and optimal gene expression as the DNA in our own bodies.

Ultimately, this new study adds to a growing body of research indicating that cancer stem cell targeting approaches using natural substances present in the human diet for thousands of years are far superior than chemotherapy and radiation, both of which actually increase the relative populations of cancer stem cells versus non-tumorigenic ones.

Lets face it, Chemo does NOT work. According to a 2004 report by Morgan, Ward, and Barton: “The contribution of cytotoxic chemotherapy to 5-year survival in adult malignancies. … survival in adults was estimated to be 2.3% in Australia and 2.1% in the USA.”Jun 16, 2014

Consider a alkaline lifestyle and dietary change to treat this lifestyle and dietary dis-ease. Try an alkaline whole foods plant based lifestyle approach and diet to heal the core (the small and large intestines), rebuild the red blood cells and immune system, open the channels of elimination, and buffer and eliminate the acidic metabolic and dietary waste to prevent the  primary cause of all cancerous conditions.

Five Anti-Acid Juice Recipes That Will Prevent Inflammation that Leads to Heart Disease and Cancer!

Five Anti-Acid Juice Recipes That Will Prevent Inflammation that Leads to Heart Disease and Cancer!

Dr. Robert Young

 M.Sc., D.Sc., Ph.D., ND

Naturopathic Physician at the pH Miracle Ti Sana Medical Spa, Arlate, Italy

Heart disease and cancer are currently categorized as the top two health conditions that have claimed most lives in the world.  95% of heart disease and cancer is a result of what one eats, drinks and thinks.  Only 5% of all heart attacks, strokes or cancers are genetic.  In fact, that 5% is triggered by what one is eating, drinking and thinking.  Therefore, 100% of all sickness and disease is a consequence of what you eat, what you drink and what you think.  You decide your own health, energy and vitality or your sickness and disease with your thoughts, your words and your deeds.

The presence of unhealthy or cancerous cells in your body is NOT permanent because it depends on you, your lifestyle and dietary habits that determines whether or not a healthy cell becomes inflamed, degenerative and cancerous.  The health of your body cells that make up all your tissues, organs and glands is determined by the environment they reside.  Therefore the human body cell is only as healthy as its alkaline environment.  Bottomline, you are alkaline by design and acidic by function.  Breathing, thinking, eating, drinking and moving all produce acidic waste products if NOT eliminated via the four channels of elimination will buildup and damage healthy body cells causing them to become unhealthy or cancerous body cells.  You see, inflammation is caused by acidity and inflammation is the spark that ignites all sickness and disease, including a heart or cancerous condition.

It is important to recognize that preventing and reversing a heart or cancerous condition can only happen when you are willing to embrace an alkaline lifestyle and diet. To help you on your journey for extraordinary health and vitality free from all sickness and disease, including heart disease and cancer, I want to share with you a list of alkalizing juices that will support you on this journey!

Cucumber, parsley, kale and spinach
To prevent the onset of an acidic condition juicing and/or eating sliced cucumbers with sea salt, parsley, kale and spinach is recommended. These ingredients perform various inputs of nutrients to the body, such as vitamin A, B and E and various minerals such as magnesium, potassium and calcium.

Ingredients for Juicing

1) The Juice of Cucumber

cucumber diet to lose weight

Cucumber ½ pound (225 g), 2 glasses of alkaline water (400 ml), a bunch of Parsley, and a handful of Spinach.  Juice half or a lime or lemon for for taste.

Preparation

Juice in a Green Star Juicer or blend in a Vitamix blender to achieve a liquid or pureed state.

2) The Juice of Cabbage

Unknown-6

Cabbage is an alkalizing vegetable that provides many alkalizing nutrients, including magnesium, potassium and vitamin C. It is therefore highly recommended as a key ingredient to the prevention and/or reversing a cancerous condition and its effects on human health.

Ingredients
3 or 4 leaves of cabbage
½ liter of alkaline water
Cucumber juice (optional)
Broccoli (optional)

Preparation

Liquefy green, yellow and red cabbage with alkaline water. If you want to minimize the bitter taste you can be add lemon, lime and/or cucumber juice. You can also add broccoli for increased antioxidants in buffering dietary and/or metabolic acids.

3) The Juice of Green Vegetables

526604_752039938144621_957695665_n

As mentioned above, cabbage is a beneficial food in the prevention and/or reversal of a cancerous condition.  Add other ingredients that will provide the body with alkaline nutritional properties that will buffer the acids that cause cells to become cancerous.

Ingredients

2 or 3 leaves of green cabbage, 1 handful of spinach. 1 cucumber, broccoli to taste, lemon and/or lime to taste

Preparation

You can blend with the green ingredients juice with 1 avocado. Unprocessed natural sea salt can be added to taste.

Note: Juice fasting, to make better use of their properties is recommended.

4) The Juice of Tomato

tomato-heart-health
Tomato juice is also recognized as an effective way to prevent inflammation, heart disease or a cancerous condition.  Tomato has a broad antioxidant or anti-acid phytonutrient called lycopene, which has been shown through various studies to be a substance that prevents cellular transformation or spoiling and rotting of body cells.

Ingredients
5 chopped tomatoes
1 stalk celery
1 cucumber
Cayenne pepper and sea salt (in small amounts)
Basil (optional)

Preparation

Blend all ingredients in a Vitamix blender and add basil for flavor.

5)  The Juice of Cucumber, Turmeric, Ginger, Lemon and Salt

Finally, a juice made from cucumber, tumeric, ginger and lemon that contributes to minimizing the presence of metabolic and/or dietary acid that causes inflammation leading to a heart or cancerous condition. Ginger is listed as one of the most anti-acidicfoods that exist, so I highly recommend its use. Moreover, this is a drink that provides energy to the body, while having anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and soothing/calming properties.  Why?  Because it is a powerful anti-acid of dietary, respiratory, environmental and metabolic acids.

Ingredients

1 to 2 cucumber, liberal amounts of turmeric, some ginger and lemon or lime  with sea salt to taste.

Preparation

Juice the cucumber first, then add turmeric, several roots of ginger, 10 leaves of mint with lemon and/or lime to taste.

The effectiveness of these juices lies in the concentrations of anti-acids or antioxidants that buffer acids and alkalizes the blood and then interstitial fluids that surround the cells preventing and/or reversing inflammation that leads to a heart or cancerous condition.  Several studies have been conducted on the issue of  heart and cancer dis-ease and how to prevent or treat these conditions, and have yielded positive results that an alkaline pH in interstitial fluids preclude the development of acidic or unhealthy body cells.

Therefore, if you want to prevent and/or reverse a health challenge start focusing on the fluids of the body and the cells that make up your tissues, organs and glands will adapt to that healthy alkaline environment!

The Cure for Cancer? That’s an easy question to answer! The Cure for Cancer is Found in its Prevention NOT in its Treatment! – Dr. Robert O. Young

Do you know what rotten apples, grapefruit or bananas look like? If you do then you know what cancer cells look like. Cancer cells are nothing more that healthy cells that are spoiling because of a compromised environment! Look at the picture below and you will see colorized cancerous body cells rotting in their toxic acidic environment.

What compromises the internal environment of a human body that causes body cells to begin spoiling and rotting? The answer is simple! The body’s build-up of acidic metabolic and dietary waste that has not been properly eliminated through the four channels of elimination – urination, defecation, respiration and perspiration!

Cancer is not a noun but an adjective that describes what is happening to body cells in an acidic environment due to an acidic lifestyle and diet. www.phoreveryoung.com

Early Cancer Detection Saves Lives!

Current research has determined that the key to breast cancer survival rests upon its earliest possible detection. If it’s discovered in its earliest stages, 95% cure rates are possible.

988287_543347989047133_675468375_n

A breast self-examination involves checking the breasts to help detect breast problems or changes. Many breast problems are first discovered by women themselves, often by accident. A breast self-examination involves checking the breasts for lumps or changes while standing and lying in different positions and while looking at the breasts in a mirror to note any changes in their appearance. Once a woman knows what her breasts normally look and feel like, any new lump or change in appearance should be evaluated by a doctor. Breast lumps can be noncancerous (benign) or cancerous (malignant).

In its early stages, breast cancer usually has no symptoms. As a tumor develops, you may note the following signs:
• A lump in the breast or underarm that persists after the menstrual cycle. This is often the first apparent symptom of breast cancer. Lumps associated with breast cancer are usually painless, although some may cause a noticeable sensation. Lumps are usually visible on a diagnostic medical ultrasound long before they can be visually seen or felt.
• Swelling in the armpit.
• Redness, pain or tenderness in the breast. Although lumps are usually painless, pain or tenderness can be a sign of breast cancer.
• A noticeable flattening or indentation on the breast, which may indicate a tumor that cannot be seen or felt.
• Any change in the size, contour, texture, or temperature of the breast. A reddish, pitted surface like the skin of an orange could be a sign of advanced breast cancer.
• A change in the nipple, such as a nipple retraction, dimpling, itching, a burning sensation, or ulceration.
• Unusual discharge from the nipple that may be clear, bloody or another color. It’s usually caused by benign conditions but could be due to cancer in some cases.
• A marble-like area under the skin.
• An area that is distinctly different from any other area on either breast.
If you think you have any signs or symptoms that might mean breast cancer, be sure to see your doctor as soon as possible. Your doctor will ask you questions about your symptoms, any other health problems, and possible risk factors for benign breast conditions or breast cancer.

Your breasts will be thoroughly examined for any lumps or suspicious areas and tested for the feel of their texture, size, and relationship to the skin and chest muscles. Any changes in the nipples or clavicles may be palpated, because enlargement or firmness of these lymph nodes might indicate the spread of breast cancer. Your doctor will also do a complete physical exam to evaluate your general health and whether there is any evidence of cancer that may have spread.

If breast symptoms and/or the results of your physical exam suggest breast cancer might be present, more tests will probably be done. These might include different imaging tests. The safest, painless, non-invasive, affordable breast screening tests are a combination of a Medical Diagnostic Ultrasound and Thermography, which may give us about 95% accuracy in detecting breast cancer.

Breast Thermography is a physiological, non-invasive screening procedure that detects and records infrared heat emissions from the breast, which can aid in the early detection of abnormal changes in breast tissue. Breast Thermography offers women information that no other procedure can provide. The procedure is based on the principle that chemical and blood vessel activity in both pre-cancerous tissue and the area surrounding a developing breast cancer is almost always higher than in the normal breast.

Since pre-cancerous and cancerous masses are highly metabolic tissues, they need an abundant supply of nutrients to maintain their growth. The cells release substances that stimulate the formation of new blood vessels (neoangiogenesis). This process results in an increase in surface temperatures of the breast.

The most promising aspect of medical diagnostic thermography is its ability to spot abnormalities years before the tumor is seen on any anatomical test. Since thermal imaging detects changes at the cellular level, this test can detect activity 8 to 10 years before any other test. This makes it unique in that it affords us the opportunity to view changes before the actual formation of the tumor.

Studies have shown that by the time a tumor has grown to sufficient size to be detectable by physical examination or mammography, it has in fact been growing for about seven years achieving more than 25 doublings of the malignant cell colony. At 90 days there are two cells, at one year there are 16 cells, and at five years there are 1,048,576 cells–an amount that is still undetectable by a mammogram. Thermography has the ability to provide women with future risk assessment. If discovered, certain thermographic risk markers can warn a woman that she needs to work closely with her doctor with regular checkups to monitor her breast health.


Breast Ultrasound is an anatomical non-invasive, painless screening test without ionized radiation. Ultrasound, also known as sonography, uses sound waves to outline a part of the body. For this test, a small instrument called a transducer is placed on the skin (which is often first lubricated with ultrasound gel) and emits sound waves off body tissues. The echoes are converted by a computer into an image that is displayed on a computer screen. Ultrasound imaging is “real-time,” meaning that it can show exactly what’s happening in the breast at that moment, help to distinguish between cysts (fluid-filled sacs) and solid masses, detect increased vascularity around or within the mass, see the shape, exact size and location of the mass, cyst, calcification or dilated mammary ducts.
These safe diagnostic tests can be done on early bases for a regular check up, or more often if the problem was detected, to monitor a treatment progress.
.
Please remember — early detection, which includes self examination and safe, painless, non-invasive medical diagnostic Ultrasound and Thermography screenings with NO radiation Saves Lives!

Alkalizing Nutritional Therapy For Any Cancerous Condition: How It Works

51978-william170

 Abstract

Due to the evident ineffectiveness of conventional cancer treatments (e.g. chemotherapy and radiation), more efficient alternatives are needed.  The potential of Alkaline Nutritional Infusion (ANI) as a legitimate alternative to chemotherapy and radiation is examined.  While largely ignored in conventional oncology, the pH of the interstitial fluids is suggested as paramount in identifying a pre-cancerous and cancerous condition. It is further suggested that cancer is an over-acidic condition of the body that can be reversed and prevented with alkalizing treatments such as ANI.  Full Body Bio-Electro Scan (FBBES), Full Body Thermography (FBT) and Full Body Ultrasound (FBU) is presented as a noninvasive and nonradioactive means to examine body pH and the presence of pre-cancerous or cancerous condition.  In contrast to the acidosis caused by conventional cancer treatments, ANI methods such as Intravenous Nutritional Infusion (INI) and Rectal Nutritional Infusion (RNI) provide an alkalizing approach to cancer prevention and treatment.Introduction

While largely ignored in conventional oncology for decades, intravenous  and rectal nutritional infusion therapy plays a major key in recovering from and reversing any metabolic, environmental, or dietary caused dis-ease. But when you visit your conventional doctor for any condition or dis-ease, he or she will never address the patient’s lifestyle or diet, besides sometimes shrugging and saying, “Eat better and get more exercise.”  This is generally stated to the patient without giving any specific recommendations of what to eat, what to drink or how to exercise.

This general mindset stems from medical schools where a physician may receive only a few hours of nutritional, dietary or physical training in their nutritional, biochemistry or physiology courses on the importance of nutrition, diet and exercise. Then all training, including residency and fellowship is completely pharmaceutical-drug focused. Only a select few take the time to be trained and mentored by traditional, integrative or naturopathic physicians that specialize in the prevention and treatment of cancer or other dis-ease conditions.

Powerful Insights to Non-Invasive Cancer Treatment

Alkalizing nutrition, diet and exercise is key in prevention, treatment and recovery, especially with a cancerous condition, because chemotherapy and radiation treatments deplete the nutrients and electron energy right out of the body. This is why patients undergoing chemo lose their hair, lose weight and look so gaunt or ill – their bodies are literally starving for electron-rich alkalizing nutrition, food and water while simultaneously loading-up with an acid-rich and toxic diet combined with their associated metabolic waste, such as lactic, uric or acetic acid.  In addition, it is important to understand when dietary and metabolic acids are NOT eliminated through the four channels of elimination via urination, defecation, perspiration and respiration, these toxins will eventually buildup in the connective tissues leading to inflammation and ultimately degenerative disease, namely cancer. [1,2,3,4]

Every person has unique dietary and metabolic needs, meaning that telling a patient to open wide and then administer some minerals and vitamins orally will not always do the trick. Some people need more sodium or potassium and some may need extra vitamin A or E in their diet, while others may need less. Some patients need more magnesium and others have iron deficiencies due to the poor health in the crypts of the small intestines where stem cells are made for differentiation into new and healthy red blood cells.[5]

Even though oncology as a whole has ignored intravenous and/or rectal alkalizing nutritional infusions, fearing that alkalizing nutrients will adversely impact chemotherapy or radiation, they really detour patients from these kinds of supportive and non-invasive treatments. This is in spite of 280 peer-reviewed studies, including 50 human studies involving 8,521 patients that have emerged since the 1970’s. 5081 subjects that were give nutrients have shown that supplementing  nutrients do not interfere with conventional therapeutic modalities for cancer. [6]

So what are we left with? The fact is, every cancer patient needs a complete, personalized physiological, anatomical, functional, hematological and nutritional profile if he or she really wants the edge in preventing and removing the acids that cause the inflammation that leads to a cancerous condition. [1,2,3,4] Let’s explore what this all means and how it can make the difference in a patients survival and improving the quality and quantity of  life.

In The Beginning . . .

Life on earth depends on appropriate pH levels in and around living organisms and cells. Human life requires a tightly controlled pH level in the serum of about 7.365 (a slightly alkaline range of 7.35 to 7.45) to survive [7].

As a comparison, in the past 100 years with increasing industrialization, the pH or acid/base balance of the ocean has dropped from 8.2 to 8.1 because of increasing CO2 or carbon monoxide deposition. This has a negative impact on life in the ocean [8, 9] and may lead to the collapse of the coral reefs.  Why”  Because the ocean is using the calcium in the coral to maintain its alkalinity much like the body uses the calcium from the bones to maintain the alkalinity of the intracellular fluids, interstitial fluids and blood fluids. [7]. Even the pH of the soil in which plants are grown can have considerable influence on the mineral content of the food we eat (as minerals are used as buffers to maintain pH). The ideal pH of soil for the best overall availability of essential nutrients is between 6 and 7. Acidic soils below pH of 6 may have reduced calcium and magnesium, and soil above pH 7 may result in chemically unavailable iron, manganese, copper and zinc. Adding dolomite and manure are ways of raising pH in an acidic soil environment when the pH is below 6. [10]

When it comes to the pH and net acid load in the human diet, there has been considerable change from the hunter gather civilization to the present. [11]  With the agricultural revolution (last 10,000 years) and even more recently with industrialization (last 200 years), there has been an decrease in potassium (K) compared to sodium (Na) and an increase in chloride compared to bicarbonate found in the diet. [12]  The ratio of potassium to sodium has reversed, K/Na previously was 10 to 1 whereas the modern diet has a ratio of 1 to 3. [13] It is generally accepted that agricultural humans today have a diet poor in magnesium and potassium as well as fiber and rich in saturated fat, simple sugars, processed sodium containing aluminum, and processed chloride as compared to the preagricultural period. [14]  This results in a diet that may induces dietary acidosis which is mismatched to the genetically determined alkaline nutritional requirements. [15]  With aging, there is a gradual loss of renal acid-base regulatory function and a resultant increase in diet-induced metabolic acidosis while ingesting the modern or Standard American Diet. [16]

A low-carbohydrate high-protein diet with its increased acid or proton/hydrogen load results in very little change in blood chemistry, and pH, but results in many changes in interstitial and urinary pH chemistry. Urinary and interstitial fluid sodium and magnesium levels, urinary citrate and pH are decreased, urinary calcium,  potassium, undissociated uric acid, and phosphates are increased. All of these result in an increased risk for metabolic tissue acidosis, bone loss and an increase in blood, breast, brain, liver, gallbladder, pancreas, prostate, uterus and kidney stones. [16]  The reason for the increase in stones throughout the body is to buffer the increase of dietary and metabolic acids found throughout the fluids of the body.  The increase of stones is the direct result of an increase of the dietary and/or metabolic acid-load which if not corrected will lead to a cancerous condition in those specific areas. [16]

Alkalinity and Chemotherapy in the Treatment of Cancer

The effectiveness of chemotherapeutic agents is markedly influenced by the pH or the acid/base chemistry of the body.  Numerous agents such as epirubicin and adriamycin require an alkaline media to be more effective. Others, such as cisplatin, mitomycin C, and thiotepa, are more cytotoxic in an acid media [17]. Cell death correlates with acidosis and intracellular pH shifts higher (more alkaline) after chemotherapy may reflect response to chemotherapy [18]. I have noted with many of my patients that inducing metabolic alkalosis may be useful in enhancing some treatment regimes by using alkalizing intravenous or rectal mineral and vitamin infusion therapy of sodium bicarbonate, carbicab, and furosemide [19]. In addition, extracellular alkalinization by using mineral salts such as sodium and potassium bicarbonate may result in improvements in the effectiveness of chemotherapy. [20]

Alkalizing Nutrition, the Immune System and How Together They Fight Cancer

cancer1_2130923b

 

Briefly, let’s review: cancer is an adjective not a noun.  Cancer is what happens to cells in a toxic acidic environment.  Simply put cancer is an acidic metabolic or dietary waste that spoils healthy cells. Healthy cells are affected by their environment which can activate protective genes. [21]  If the acidic internal environment of the body is not returned to its alkaline design this will cause mutations or fermentation of the cell and the acids from these spoiling cells will spoil other cells, just like one domino tipping-over another domino leading to a cancerous condition. [61, 62]

The reason the body can have such trouble fighting cancer varies – in part, it has do with protecting the alkaline design of the body fluids, the health of the white blood cells and the body’s ability to neutralize metabolic and/or dietary acidic waste that has NOT been properly removed via the four channels of elimination – urination, defection, perspiration and respiration.

Poor circulation, elimination and alkaline nutrition leads to a build-up of acidic waste and poor immune defense (the janitors of the blood and interstitial fluids), which can increase the number of cancerous cells, as one spoiled or rotting cell spoils another, much like one rotten apple will spoil a bushel of healthy apples creating an acidic microenvironment that creates more and more rotten apples or cancerous cells  that would be resistant to any conventional acidic treatment.

Now, the most commonly accepted forms of cancer treatment are chemotherapy and radiation therapy. These acidic drugs and ionizing radiation will systemically destroy already acidic cancerous cells, but they will also turn healthy blood and body cells into cancerous cells.  This will create an immediate response from the body to produce and release alkaline compounds, such as sodium bicarbonate to buffer the increased amounts of acidic waste draining the body of essential nutrients and critically paralyzing the white blood cells making them inactive and ineffective in buffering and removing cellular waste. During these acidic conventional treatments, the immune system is essentially obliterated, which can lead to metastasis while not even affecting the original cancerous condition.  According to a medical researcher, Steve Gullans, Ph.D, only 30% of  ALL people respond to chemotherapy or radiation, leaving 70% unresponsive. [22]  In addition, the data is clear that after initial chemotherapy fails, as many as 95% of cancer patients will not respond to the next suggested chemotherapy drug recommended by conventional methods.[23 ]  It is also important to understand that conventional treatments for cancer are NOT a cure for cancer.[24]

Truly, the alkaline buffering system (the stomach is the main alkalizing organ and responsible to maintain alkalinity of the blood, tissues and organs by producing sodium bicarbonate) which releases antioxidants to buffer increased acidic toxic waste build-up is the first and last defense against a cancerous condition. [25] If poor alkalizing nutrition is ignored, as it has been by conventional oncology for decades, how can a full recovery or at least a satisfactory quality of life be expected? In my clinical experience it’s difficult. Some oncology groups have improved by offering in house nutritionists, but oral supplementation is nowhere near sufficient in reversing a cancerous condition.

The best analogy is that it’s like trying to take out a forest fire with a squirt gun.  Or another analogy would be treating a fish in a polluted pond without changing or cleaning the water.  In other words if the fish is sick what would you do?  Treat the fish or change the water? (63,64)  Unfortunately, most groups that advertise integrative, alternative or naturopathic medicine for reversing a cancerous condition lack proper testing, a targeted method of administration or proper combination with personalized alkalizing treatments. That’s the difference that lengthens the quality and quantity of life, in my 30 plus years of clinical research experience.

Consider that, if these shortages are found in a healthy population, what I see in patients with a cancerous condition is far worse, due to their high acidity and metabolic demands. Though an alkaline lifestyle and diet is important, it’s the amount and quality of care received at therapeutic intravenous, oral, rectal and respiratory levels that is vital.

Alkalizing Non-Invasive Rectal Nutrient Infusions

One important point concerning the infusion of alkalizing nutrients!  For those who do not want an invasive intravenous infusion of alkaline minerals, salts, vitamins, chlorophyll, antioxidants such as glutathione, and/or long-chain polyunsaturated oils you can elect a non-invasive rectal infusion or nebulize your nutrients, which I believe is just as effective.  When these supportive nutrients are infused via the anus into the rectum, the hemorrdoidal vein absorbs these alkalizing nutrients into the blood.  The blood has a very narrow pH range so these highly alkalizing nutrients are pushed-out into the interstitial fluids to the body cells.  This becomes a very important therapy in reducing the metabolic acids that surround the cell and cause the fermentation and break-down of cell leading to a cancerous condition.

How Supplementation Can Kick-Start Your Recovery from a Cancerous Condition

As you can see, nutritional deficiencies can lead to a serious amount of health issues. These problems can become exponential in a patient with a cancerous condition because of the severe strain placed on the patient, especially when chemotherapy and/or ionizing radiation is involved.

To make matters worse, absorption of salts, minerals, and vitamins is impaired. This means, eating a alkaline diet and swallowing a few minerals and vitamins is not sufficient to support the nutritional needs of the patient. These changes are essential for long-term health, but in the wake of a cancerous condition, it’s hardly enough.

What needs to be done is intravenous and/or rectal nutritional infusion therapy. When nutrients are channeled directly into the bloodstream and then to the interstitial fluids, the results are immediate, targeted and dramatic. Keep in mind, this methodology isn’t a treatment in-and-of itself. Intravenous and rectal nutritional therapy must be combined with other forms of treatment to be truly effective. But once it is combined with the correct, personalized alkalizing therapy, alkalizing diet, exercise, and proper alkalizing water, then a revolutionary pH Miracle can begin. [63, 64]

Using 3-D Bio-Electro Functionality Scanning to Determine the Best Possible Strategy for Preventing and/or Reversing Any Cancerous Condition [65]

In modern day oncology, surgeons biopsy the lymph nodes to determine how cancer is spreading or provide staging. Lymphocytes, a type of white blood cell that is found in these lymph nodes which are catch-basins for acidic waste and cancerous cells are responsible for breaking-down and removing cellular acidic waste and cancerous cells. Impaired lymphocytes and/or congested lymph nodes are at least one major factor in the many areas I test for functionality.

The lymphatic system, the lymph nodes and the lymphocytes themselves must be functional in preventing and reversing any cancerous condition.

Using electrodes attached to the head, hands and feet I am able to test the functionality of the lymphatic system, circulatory system, muscular system, skeletal system, endocrine system, neurological system, reproductive system, vascular system, digestive system,  and respiratory system.  interstitial chemistry, interstitial pH for metabolic acidosis and the electro-conductivity of the cells to determine the state of health of ALL organs, glands and tissues in the prevention and reversal of any cancerous condition.[65]

3-D

I also test for nutritional deficiencies and metabolic alkalosis or acidosis by measuring the  interstitial chemistry, interstitial pH and the electro-conductivity.  Measuring the pH of the interstitial fluids is more revealing of a cancerous condition since the blood is always trying to maintain its delicate alkaline pH of 7.365 and does not vary much.  Based upon my theory that cancer is a compromised acidic environment of the interstitial fluids which then negatively affects the state of health of ALL body cells which make up the organs, glands and tissues.  It is significantly more important to measure interstitial and intracellular fluids than blood fluids in order to obtain a correct chemistry and pH when making nutritional recommendations in the prevention and treatment of a cancerous condition. [63, 64, 65,66,67]

The following are quantitative measurements in healthy patients, without cancer, comparing Blood fluids with Intracellular and Interstitial fluids of the body compartments as a benchmark which I use to determine deficiencies in alkalizing minerals, protein and whether or not the patient is in metabolic acidosis or a pre-cancerous or cancerous condition (Note: all cancer patients are in interstitial metabolic acidosis, low in interstitial sodium and high in interstitial calcium and potassium): [66,67]

As I correct the deficiencies in the intracellular and interstitial fluids targeted with key alkalizing nutritional treatments, patients see the difference through follow-up tests using quantitative non-invasive 3-D Full Body Bio-Electro scanning.  They also feel the difference physiologically and functionally.[65,66,67]

This is how I know proper alkalizing nutritional support in any cancerous condition is important in the prevention and treatment of cancer, the  metastasis of cancer and the shrinking of a cancerous cyst or mass without chemotherapy and/or radiation. The best part about these alkalizing nutritional treatments is they are helpful in most, if not in all cancerous conditions.[61, 64,65]

The following case study with one of my patients was diagnosed by biopsy with inflammatory ductal cell carcinoma who reversed her cancerous condition without chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and surgery.[65]

Using breast thermography and tumor location and size measured by breast ultrasound you can see the week by week reduction of a 14.2cm tumor in the left breast reduce to less than 2cm in 7 weeks of treatment using an alkaline lifestyle and dietary protocol as outlined in Chapter 11 of the pH Miracle revised and updated book. (63,64,65)

Summary

The safest, painless, non-invasive, affordable full body screening tests are a combination of a Medical Diagnostic Ultrasound and Thermography, which may give the Physician about 95% accuracy in detecting breast cancer.[65]

Thermography is a physiological, non-invasive screening procedure that detects and records infrared heat emissions from the pre-cancerous or cancerous area, which can aid in the early detection of abnormal changes in body tissues, organs and glands. Thermography offers information that no other procedure can provide. The procedure is based on the principle that chemical and blood vessel activity in both pre-cancerous or cancerous tissue and the area surrounding a developing cancer is almost always higher in temperature than in the normal tissue.

Since pre-cancerous and cancerous masses are highly metabolic tissues, they need an abundant supply of nutrients to maintain their growth. The cells release substances that stimulate the formation of new blood vessels (neoangiogenesis). This process results in an increase in surface temperatures of the affected tissue, organ or gland.

The most promising aspect of medical diagnostic thermography is its ability to spot abnormalities years before the tumor is seen on any anatomical test. Since thermal imaging detects changes at the cellular level, this test can detect activity 8 to 10 years before any other test. This makes it unique in that it affords the physician the opportunity to view changes before the actual formation of the cancerous tumor.

Studies have shown that by the time a tumor has grown to sufficient size to be detectable by physical examination or mammography, it has in fact been growing for about seven years achieving more than 25 doublings of the malignant cell colony. At 90 days there are two cells, at one year there are 16 cells, and at five years there are 1,048,576 cells–an amount that is still undetectable by a mammogram. Thermography has the ability to provide the patient with future risk assessment. If discovered, certain thermographic risk markers can warn the patient that she/he needs to work closely with their physician with regular checkups to monitor her  health.


Full-Body Ultrasound [FBU} is an anatomical non-invasive, painless screening test without ionized radiation. Ultrasound, also known as sonography, uses sound waves to outline a part of the body. For this test, a small instrument called a transducer is placed on the skin (which is often first lubricated with ultrasound gel) and emits sound waves off body tissues. The echoes are converted by a computer into an image that is displayed on a computer screen.

Full Body Ultrasound imaging is “real-time,” meaning that it can show exactly what’s happening in the tissue, organ or gland at that moment, help to distinguish between cysts (fluid-filled sacs) and solid masses, detect increased vascularity around or within the mass, see the shape, exact size and location of the mass, cyst, calcification or dilated mammary ducts.

These safe medical diagnostic tests can be done on early bases for a regular check up, or more often if the problem was detected, to monitor a noninvasive alkalizing nutritional treatment progress.

Early detection, which includes self examination and safe, painless, non-invasive medical diagnostic Full Body Bio-electro Scan(FBBES) Full Body Thermography (FBT) and Full Body Ultrasound (FBU) screenings with no ionizing radiation coupled with a supportive alkalizing nutritional diet and ANI whether or not the patient is receiving chemotherapy and/or radiation, I have found that this approach a precancerous or cancerous condition will saves lives!

The Cure for Cancer? That’s an easy question to answer! The Cure for Cancer is Found in its Prevention NOT in its Treatment! – Dr. Robert O. Young

Do you know what rotten apples, grapefruit or bananas look like? If you do then you know what cancer cells look like. Cancer cells are nothing more that healthy cells that are spoiling because of a compromised environment! Look at the picture below and you will see colorized cancerous body cells rotting in their toxic acidic environment.

What compromises the internal environment of a human body that causes body cells to begin spoiling and rotting? The answer is simple! The body’s build-up of acidic metabolic and dietary waste that has not been properly eliminated through the four channels of elimination – urination, defecation, respiration and perspiration! 

Cancer is not a noun but an adjective that describes what is happening to body cells in an acidic environment due to an acidic lifestyle and diet. www.phoreveryoung.com

Introducing Dr. Robert O. Young and the “pH Miracle for Cancer”

Introducing Dr. Robert O. Young and the “pH Miracle for Cancer”

I am very excited to introduce you to the work of the leading nutritional microbiologist in the world today — Dr. Robert O. Young.

Over the past two and a half decades, Dr. Robert O. Young has been widely recognized as one of the top research scientists in the world. Throughout his career, his research has been focused at the cellular level. Having a specialty in cellular nutrition, Dr. Young has devoted his life to researching the true causes of “disease,” subsequently developing The New Biology™ to help people balance their life.

THE NEW BIOLOGY 

Dr. Young’s scientific findings have led him to a new science he calls The New BiologyTM.

In contrast, the ‘old’ biology (based on the work of Louis Pasteur in the late 1800s) stems from the idea that disease comes from germs and bacteria which invade the body from the outside.

Simply put, the New Biology states that there is only One Sickness and One Disease, and that this one ‘sickness’ is the over-acidification of the body due primarily to an inverted way of living, thinking, and eating.

This over-acidification leads to the over-growth in our body of micro-organisms (such as yeast and fungi) whose poisons produce the symptomologies that medical science refers to as “disease”. 

Based on Dr. Young’s theory, there’s only one sickness, and there can therefore be only one remedy and treatment, and that is to alkalize the body and break the cycle of imbalance, thus allowing us to experience the energy, vitality and true health we’re all meant to have.

What’s more, Dr Robert Young is a man for whom I have immense respect and admiration. If you are familiar with my work (through my books, eBooks, and seminars), you know that I’m definitely not one who easily buys into “miracle cures” – nor am I easily swayed by other people’s opinions or anecdotal reports. I’m extremely wary of exaggerated health claims provided by individuals or enterprises that stand to make huge profits from the proliferation of those claims.

But the more I expanded my research into this New BiologyTM, the more I was dumbfounded by the mountains of evidence showing that this therapy has already been used by so many health practitioners who have adopted Dr Young’s protocol to heal cancer and every conceivable disease.

My skepticism turned to conviction when I realized that this cure is . . .

…the only healing therapy that finally eliminates the REAL cause of cancer!

Specifically, my skepticism melted away when I saw the overwhelming evidence consisting of thousands of people that were healed of cancer once and for all.

This is BY FAR the simplest, most effective and most powerful therapy for curing cancer and creating optimal health. It is also the secret that both the American pharmaceutical industry and the medical establishment don’t want you to know.

That’s because this simple cure for virtually all diseases threatens the livelihood and the trillion-dollar earnings of the pharmaceutical and health care industries – not to mention the medical centers and physicians that make a great living from providing expensive drugs, complex medical procedures and long hospital stays.

The simple protocol which is detailed in this book represents the biggest threat to the revenues of the pharmaceutical and medical industries.  It’s a bigger threat than all the alternative healing therapies, nutritional supplements, natural foods and products COMBINED.

I believe it’s the definitive answer to the causeprevention and cureof cancer and of a great many diseases that plague the world today.

Therefore I am deeply honoured, thrilled and excited to introduce you to a research scientist who is not only a genius in his field, but a man with an immense heart. Dr Young is a man who truly cares deeply, and I am certain his knowledge and caring can make a difference not only in your life, but in the lives of all your family and loved ones. So let the journey of transformation begin!

The pH miracle for cancer by Dr. Robert O. Young (release date August 1st, 2015)

72c4e-william2b170

We’re very, very grateful to be able to share this research – this New BiologyTM – what I (Rob) refer to as a new way of living, a new way of eating, a new way of thinking.

Some of the questions we’ll be covering in this chapter include:

  • What is cancer?
  • What’s the cause of all cancer? (Is cancer a mutant cell, a virus, a mould? Or is cancer an acidic liquid?)
  • Is cancer a noun or is it actually an adjective that explains what’s happening to the cell?
  • Are tumours bad or good?
  • What role does the lymphatic system play in all this?

The focus will be on the alkaline pH of the body. The key I believe is to obtain sustainable energy.

Most of the last 25 years of my research has been focused on what is happening to the cells as it pertains specifically to the environment around those cells. And I love this quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson: “What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” So the focus of my research has been on specifically what lies within us and, more specifically, how the internal fluids affect the health, energy, and vitality of the human cell. Dr Benjamin Rush, eminent physician and signer of the Declaration of Independence, said: “Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution, the time will come when medicine will organize into an underground dictatorship. To restrict the art of healing to one class of men and deny equal privileges to others will constitute the Bastille of medical science. All such laws are un-American and despotic.”

As I think about my vision, the relative purpose of medicine I believe must include not just the treatment but also the prevention of illness and the promotion of health and fitness, rather than just focusing all of our attention on a specific diagnosis or even the treatment of disease. Because disease is an illusion, in reality disease is the body trying to prevent fermentation or break down of the tissue. It’s the body in preservation mode trying to maintain the homeostasis of the internal fluids of the body, which are alkaline. I believe that the ultimate purpose of medicine is to help people discover something fundamental within themselves. And that is an awareness of the true source of wellbeing, the true source of joy, the true source of contentment that we all seek which lies in one’s mind and in one’s heart – which are the emotions and the spirit. And this is important so that we can all begin to be free from the process of grasping for happiness on a physical world.

To support this approach, this theory, I believe we must begin to embrace a more spiritual vision of ourselves and of humanity as a whole, while at the right time providing great love, care, and attention to the physical body. Then, and only then, will medicine (or the treatments that medicine is current performing) help people discover this non-physical, spiritual dimension of themselves. And when this happens I believe that we can live and work with less fear. Rather than working in fear we can work in its opposite – we can work in faith. We’re going to have less stress grasping to preserve the physical body at all costs, then I believe we can truly be happy, energetic, and free.

Last year Shelley and I (Rob) had the opportunity to have a wonderful experience with Dr Carter who is the caretaker of the estate of Martin Luther King and also the protégé of M. L. King, and there he honoured Shelley and I. And the most important thing that I learned about Dr Carter was his openness to not just thinking outside the box, because we talk a lot about thinking outside the box, I would like to suggest rather than thinking outside the box as we contemplate these new theories that I am going to be presenting to you on the pH Miracle for cancer, but making the box bigger. We don’t have to think outside the box, we just need to make the box bigger to allow new technologies, new biologies, new protocols that are effectively making the difference, specifically in the prevention and treatment of cancer.

“You must be the change we want to see.”

– Ghandi 

If we want to see the cure for cancer, I believe we must be change we want to see.  We’ll have to look at it differently, not outside the box but inside the box making it bigger. Expanding our views and our perspective as it relates to cancer.

Now before we start exploring the pH Miracle for cancer, I must start up by saying what is a pH miracle. And I would suggest that a pH miracle is a natural phenomenon that is not understood currently by medical researchers, specifically in the cause and effect relationship. What is the cause? Is cancer a cause for disease? I say no, cancer is the body attempting to maintain homeostasis and cancer is the body in preservation mode trying to maintain the alkaline design of the human organism. So first we must understand that cancer is unequivocally not a disease, but a symptom or better yet an effect of gastrointestinal and metabolic acids that have built up in the blood and then these acids are thrown off into the tissues poisoning and suppressing our immune system making it increasingly difficult to maintain the alkaline pH of the internal fluids of the body. So these acids destroy the white cells’ ability to remove acids and the cells which they spoil.

What I’m simply suggesting is that cancer is not a cell, but an acidic liquid that spoils our cells that make up our tissues and organs when those acids are not properly eliminated through urination, perspiration, respiration or defecation. Let’s now look at the current medical definition of cancer. What is it? Cancer is a group of diseases characterized by uncontrolled growth and spread of abnormal cells. If the spread is not controlled it can result in death. Cancer is caused by both external factors, some of which are known and are common in our society such as tobacco, chemicals, radiation (from our cellular phones) and internal factors: hormone imbalances, immune deficiency and gene mutations – which is what they’re suggesting. These factors may act together in a sequence to promote what is called carcinogenesis. This is the classical definition of cancer, taken directly from the American Cancer Society.

So what is being suggested by current medical science is that the cancer is some mutating cell that – a transmutation of the genes – triggered by internal or external factors, this is true but what is not understood is these internal or external factors are the acids themselves. So when we’re dealing with any symptom or an effect, we need to look at the cause. Whether externally or internally, the focus traditionally has been to look at the matter rather than look at the environment around the matter. And to understand the cause is very simple just like the treatment. And the New Biology® explains the cause and effect of all sickness and disease and specifically cancer as well as how to improve the quality and quantity of life without chemical therapy, radiation or surgery.

Let me give you an example. Enervation (ie, lack of energy), muscle weakness, you’ve probably seen the commercials on television, it’s a new disease they call restless legs syndrome (RLS) for which there are drugs that supposedly treat the syndrome. They want to put everything in a disease modality – a nice little box – that has a specific treatment. Yet restless legs syndrome is weakness or loss of electrical power. It’s not a disease. But by causing a flagging of the toxic elimination from the tissue, the blood becomes charged with these metabolic acids and when it’s charged with these metabolic acids the blood has to purify itself by throwing these metabolic acids into the tissues to maintain its delicate pH balance of 7.365. This is what I call the body in preservation mode which leads to what I refer to as latent tissue acidosis. This is poison in the blood, and if that poison is not eliminated through urination, perspiration, respiration or defecation, the body has to purify itself so it throws this poison into the connective tissue. This is the disease, or is it? Not even skin challenges when the acids accumulate beyond the toleration point a crisis takes place which means that the poison or the acid is being eliminated through the skin.

Looking at the 2006 statistics for cancer, this year in America we’re looking at 1,400,000 new cases of cancer. By the way, this statistic doesn’t even include skin cancer which is actually bigger than lung cancer, breast cancer or prostate cancer. And prostate cancer is known to be the leading cause of death in men while lung cancer being the leading cause of death in women. And yet when we look at cancer, the new incidents of cancer and the new diagnoses are skin cancers because skin is the third kidney – the elimination organ. And if acids are not properly eliminated through the elimination channels, then those acids are thrown out into the tissues and this is what’s not currently recognized by medical science.

This is the reason why the blood maintains its pH by either eliminating acid through urination or throwing it into the colloidal tissue which leads to this crisis, this poisoning, this elimination through the skin, again the third kidney! And this is not a disease. The only disease is systemic, because acids flow out through your whole body. They are the waste products of metabolism. Our bodies are like cars, they’re constantly on though 24/7 and they require energy and when energy is being used, a waste product like carbon dioxide or carbon monoxide or lactic acid is being created. So acid is constantly being created which has to be eliminated. So when energy is being used to think, to move, to breathe, at the same time an acid is being created and acid needs to be eliminated. If the acid is not eliminated, it is thrown out into the colloidal connective tissue. It is our tissue that becomes the colloidal acid catcher in order to maintain the purity of the blood. The blood has to maintain the purity and this is why the blood has a constant pH. If it varies of even just one point you can have ill effects. The proper balance is 7.365. If it starts dropping or if it starts going up, the body will do whatever it can to maintain that delicate pH. This is very significant in order to understand cancer and why it’s not a cell but the spoiling of the cell and tissue by metabolic acids which are not properly eliminated through elimination because we have enervation, we don’t have the energy to move the acid out to maintain the purity of the blood, so it is then sent out into the colloidal connective tissue.

When this elimination takes place through the mucus membrane of the nose for example it’s called a cold – catarrh of the nose. And when these crises are repeated for years the mucus membrane thickens and ulcerates, and the bones enlarge, closing the passages. At this stage hay fever, asthma develops. When the tonsils or any other respiratory passages become the seat of the crisis of acidity (because the acids were not properly eliminated) then we have tonsillitis, laryngitis, bronchitis, asthma, pneumonia, and cancer. You see, it’s progressive, it’s the same thing. All that’s happening is different progressions of the same thing – just different levels of states of acidosis. When this acid is located in the cranial cavity we have dementia, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, muddle thinking, forgetfulness. If the acids accumulate in the digestive area, we end up with irritable bowel syndrome, gastro intestinal problems, stenosis, colitis. And when the acids locate in the pelvic tissue, or in the breasts, we end up with micro calcifications as the body, in preservation mode, is using one of these alkaline buffers such as calcium to neutralize the acids and that’s why we have these micro calcifications in the pelvic area and in the breast. This always precedes the rotting of the tissue. Even in prostate cancer.

Hence all cancers are the expulsion of acids from the blood and then the tissue at different points and are essentially the same character evolving from the same cause, namely systemic acidosis – a crisis of toxaemia. The description can be extended to every organ of the body: the lung, the liver, the pancreas, the bowls, the brain, including the largest organs which has the highest incidents: the skin. Any organ that is enervated below the average standard (from stress of habit, from overstress at work, from worry, anxiety, fear, injury, etc.) may become the location of the crisis of systemic latent tissue acidosis. The symptoms presented differently depending upon which organ is being affected. Which is what makes it appear as if every symptom complex is a separate and distinct disease. But we need to not think outside the box, we need to think inside the box, we just need to make the box bigger.

I give thanks to this new light shed upon nomen culture naming disease by the philosophy of The New Biology, every symptom complex goes back to the one and only cause of all so called cancers, namely systemic latent tissue acidosis. To find the cause of all symptomologies – lung cancer, breast cancer, brain cancer, bowl cancer, prostate cancer – we start with colds and catarrh, and watch the pathology and is it travels from irritation to catarrh to inflammation to induration to ulceration and then to cancer: nothing more than rotting tissue. And what is causing the transformation (and not gene transmutation) is the spoiling of the cell due to the acids.

Have you ever opened a refrigerator and smelled the spoiling foods at the back? These are the acids! It’s not some germ, it’s not some virus, it’s not some mold that’s breaking this down, it’s the acids that are breaking the tissue down and giving rise to the symptomology. Mold is like a smoking gun, the bullet being the acid. And yet it’s not the bullet or the acid that kills, and surely not the smoke or some gene mutation, or some bacteria or virus, but it is the person himself or herself that is pulling lifestyle and dietary trigger which then releases the acid that then tenderizes or spoils the tissue in the weakest parts of the body.

Nature’s order is interfered with by innovating habits until acidosis is established. A vaccination as evidenced by the Spanish flu epidemic or an infection, in truth it’s literally an out-fection from the same source causing the most vulnerable organ, specifically the bowls, to take on organic changes. The organ however has nothing to do with the cause, and directing treatment to the organ is actually compounding the problem. You cannot treat disease when in reality disease is the body in preservation trying to re-establish homeostasis in a state of systemic acidosis that’s localized at the weakest part of the body.

When we realize that breast cancer is the leading cause of death in women and that these fatty tissues (breast areas) are being used by the body to bind or collect the acids in order to protect the organs that sustain life. And by the way when one does a mammogram and sees these microcalcification of the breast, this is an indication of a state of acidosis – the body’s defensive mechanism to relieve or remove or neutralize acidity that hasn’t been properly eliminated though urination, perspiration, respiration or defecation.

If we’re dealing with prostate, we’re dealing with localized acidity. If we’re dealing with lung cancer, we’re dealing with localized acidity that can be caused by external or internal forces but everything comes from within. As we take in tobacco smoke, there are acids and toxins and poisons – one being sugar which breaks down to acetaldehyde which tenderizes this tissue. Tobacco smoking is not an addiction of nicotine, it’s an addiction of sugar which causes excess acidity in a localized area. So cause is constant, ever present, always the same, only the effects change. To illustrate, a catarrh of the stomach presents first irritation, then inflammation, then ulceration and finally induration and cancer. Cancer is not at the first, it’s the culmination of deteriorating or broken tissue spoiled by an overacidic stomach.

Most Americans are challenged with the symptomology of indigestion which can include acid reflux, bloating, heartburn, burping, diarrhea, or even constipation. The proper way to study disease is to study health in every aspect. Disease is perverted health. Cancer is perverted health – any influence that lowers energy becomes disease producing.

There’s an important question now to answer. Why do we crave sugar? It’s interesting when doing an MRI or a CAT scan. What is used but radioactive sugar that is taken up by the acidic cells – not cancer cells because we don’t have cancer cells, we have acidic cells or cancerous cells: cells that have been spoiled by the environment in which they live. So sugar cravings are the body’s needs for sustainable energy. And energy can only be transported through a matrix of salt. Therefore sugar cravings are the body’s needs for salt, not sugar. And I suggest that sugar is an acid of cellular transformation – a waste product – not a product of energy by a by-product of what the body truly uses which is electrical potential in the form of electrons.

The body doesn’t use carbohydrates, the body uses electrons to run. The body is electrical. And sugar is nothing more than a waste product of cellular breakdown and transformation. Isn’t that what happens to the banana? As the banana moves from irritation to inflammation to induration and then to cancer, going from green to yellow to brown getting its “liver spots” the same way you get liver spots, through excess fermentation and rotting. We do not say the banana has cancer, we say the banana is spoiling. In the same way we shouldn’t say that the lung has cancer but rather that the lung is spoiling – it is cancerous. Cancer is not a noun but an adjective expressing the process of cellular transformation. Again, sugar is the waste product. In fact, that’s why it gets sweeter and sweeter as it ferments. Consistently in my research I see that we have a release of sugar from the breakdown of tissue. And to overcome sugar craving we don’t have to eat sugar, we need to eat more salt. And the secondary metabolites of this primary acid or sugar are acetaldehyde and ethanol alcohol. So cravings are the body’s signal that the body needs more sustainable energy. We need energy to remove the acids of metabolism – the body utilizing electrons for energy purposes. Food, drinks, sun, minerals, vitamins, drugs… are common choices made by us to achieve sustainable energy, but yet what we’re looking for are the electrons from these sources. And our choices will determine whether or not our cravings will lead to true sustainable energy which maintains the integrity of the fluids of body and therefore the integrity of the tissues, or gives us false energy which creates this over-acidic state that leads to latent tissue acidosis which begins the process of spoiling of the tissue.

Sugar stimulates and gives the body a deceptive quick-fix – it’s illusionary – whereas salt provides the matrix and gives our body the rise in sustainable energy, over a long period of time, without the high and extreme lows that come from eating an acid – whether it be sugar or any other acidic foods or drinks.

It is the skin that suffers, because if the body can’t eliminate the acids that are created through energy consumption, it throws them out of the tissues and into the lymphatic system, and that’s why the lymphatic system is so critical in the prevention of cancer and in the treatment of cancer, because it is the lymphatic system that is the vacuum cleaner of the acids that are in the interstitial fluids of the body, pulling these acids out in order to maintain the integrity of the tissue through diaphramic breathing and perspiration (that is if we’re perspiring, which is one of the most important things we need to do on a daily basis). If we can’t eliminate our acids through urination then our body urinates through the skin – which is why there is over a million cases of skin cancer a year in the United States and probably you didn’t even know that. It’s not talked about. Why? Because the etiology of skin cancer is not understood. It is unknown. Scientists don’t know what causes basal cell carcinoma, melanoma, they do not understand it because they don’t understand latent tissue acidosis and the importance of the lymphatic system as the vacuum cleaner to move the acids out via the kidneys and through perspiration. But we’re not exercising, and this is why obesity and a lack of exercise have been associated with cancer – yet when we’re moving our body we’re moving the acids out of the tissue because the lymphatic system, unlike the circulatory system, does not have a pump (the heart), it actually flows through movement. It is the diaphragm muscle that acts as a pump for the lymphatic system that moves the acids through the system – out through perspiration or back in the general circulation to be eliminated through urination.

If you don’t want cancer, if you wan to prevent it, you have to pee or eliminate your acids through urination or perspiration. And if you are a cancer sufferer you have to pee your way to health. Because cancer is not a cell, but a poisoning acidic liquid. A cancer cell is a cell that is spoiled or poisoned by the metabolic acids and gastrointestinal acids that are produced internally, or may be breathed in. That’s when the body goes into protection mode by forming fibrous materials which cross-link to encapsulate the spoiled cells and thus forming the tumour. Hence tumour is the body’s protective mechanism to encapsulate spoiled or poisoned cells from excess acids which have not been properly eliminated through urination, perspiration, defecation, and respiration. The tumour is the body’s solution to protect healthy cells and tissues. So the tumour is not the problem. Let the tumour go. Let it do its job. The focus must be placed not on the tumour but on the environment around the tumour which is full of acids, and one of the common acids which is in higher concentration around all tumours that are in an acidic body is lactic acid, because lactic acid is a by-product of sugar metabolism when we’re in a state of oxygen deprivation. So cancer is a system acidic condition that settles in the weakest parts of the body, not a local problem that metastasizes. You see metastasis is localized acids that spoil other cells much like a rotten apple spoiling the bushel of other healthy apples.

There is no such thing as a cancer cell. A cancer cell is in reality a cancerous cell, it’s an adjective expressing the spoiling cell that’s spoiling in an over-acidic environment. A cancerous cell was once a healthy cell that has been spoiled from an over-acidic lifestyle and diet and the body’s inability to move these acids through the proper channels of elimination. The only solution to the acidic liquids that poison our body cells causing the effect that medical doctors call cancer, is to change the environment. It has to be a contextual approach. We must maintain the alkaline design of the human body. This has been the great discovery of the 21st century – that the human organism is alkaline by design (every part that makes up every anatomical element that makes up our genetic material that makes up our cells, every single part has to be bathed in an alkaline fluid which needs to be changed every 48 hours).

Early in the 19th century, beginning on January 17, 1912, a famous French physiologist of the Rockefeller Institute and Nobel Prize winner, Dr. Alexis Carrel, removed a very small piece of heart muscle from an unhatched chicken embryo—still warm and living—and placed it in fresh nutrient solution in a glass flask of his design. He transferred the tissue every forty-eight hours, during which time it doubled in size and had to be trimmed before being moved to its new flask. And every time he moved it he would put it into an alkaline saline solution with the appropriate alkalizing minerals. Thirty years later the tissue was still growing. Keep in mind that the average chicken lives for 5 – 7 years. So after getting bored of singing “Happy Birthday” to the chicken heart for over thirty years he decided to pull the plug and not change the fluids every 48 hours and the heart died.

This is a very important discovery which very few people know about because it answers the question about why cells live. You see, the life expectancy of the human cell is infinite. It just becomes compromised. Once we understand that matter cannot be created nor can it be destroyed it can only change its form or function, then we realize that the environment is everything, the terrain is everything, and the cell is subservient to that. The secret to Dr. Carrel’s chicken heart surviving for thirty years lies in this knowledge, this new biology, this new way of living and thinking as we expand the box not think outside the box, that the cell is only as healthy as the fluids it is bathed in. The heart is only as healthy as the cells. If you have lung cancer, that is an expression of the environment. And the cell as it’s breaking down is the smoke of the gun.

Carrel’s experiment brought us to the modern new biology, the new understanding, the new expansion, and the new definition of cancer – that the composition of our body fluids that bath the outside of our cells must be controlled very carefully from moment to moment and day to day with no single important constituent varying more than a few percent. This can be controlled and you can do it yourself!

In 1932 Otto Warburg received his Nobel Prize in medicine for discovering the cause of cancer. He described it as a cell changing its mode of respiration, its mode of metabolism – from respiration to fermentation. He suggested that cancer was the result of acidic environment, a state of oxygen deprivation. Warburg also wrote a paper entitled, “The Prime Cause and Prevention of Cancer.” He states: “There is no disease whose prime cause is better known. Over acidity.”

When we understand this we realize that all conditions of cancer potentially can be reversed if the treatments are focused on the fluids not the cell. Therefore it doesn’t matter what the cancer is, because cancer is not the cause but the effect of an over-acidic lifestyle and diet which is the cause. It’s the person pulling the lifestyle and dietary trigger.

After 30 years of doing blood research, after looking at thousands and thousands of cancer patients, I’ve never seen healthy blood or an alkaline environment – whether testing the pH of the saliva, or the urine, or the blood, or the sweat, or the tears – they are all acidic in an over-acidic environment. And after 25 years I’ve learned that the human organism is alkaline by design and acidic by function, and if we but maintain this alkaline design of our body through an alkaline lifestyle and diet we will prevent all cancers. For the cure of cancer is not found in its treatment, because again cancer or a cancerous condition is the body in preservation mode trying to maintain alkalinity, so the cure is going to be found not in its treatment of the tissue but in maintaining the alkaline design of the human fluids of the body. As Thomas Edison said: “The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will involve the patient in the proper use of food, fresh air and exercise.”

SODIUM BICARBONATE – An Effective Cancer Killer

 

Most of us are going to be surprised to find out that there is an
oncologist in Rome Italy, Dr. Tullio Simoncini, destroying cancer
tumors with sodium bicarbonate. [i] Sodium bicarbonate is safe,
extremely inexpensive and unstoppably effective when it comes to
cancer tissues. Its an irresistible chemical, cyanide to cancer cells
for it hits the cancer cells with a shock wave of alkalinity, which
allows much more oxygen into the cancer cells than they can tolerate.
Cancer cells cannot survive in the presence of high levels of oxygen.
Sodium bicarbonate is, for all intent and purposes, an instant killer
of tumors. Full treatment takes only days, as does another cancer
treatment that heats the cancer cells with laser generated heat. (At
bottom see combining ph shift with heat.)

The extracellular (interstitial) pH (pHe) of solid tumours is
significantly more acidic compared to normal tissues. [ii]

Case one: A patient diagnosed with pulmonary neoplasm of the lung,
underwent treatment with sodium bicarbonate, before submitting to
surgery to remove part of the lung. Treatment consisted of sodium
bicarbonate administered orally, by aerosol, and IV. After first
treatment reduction of nodules and absorption was evident, and after 8 months was no longer visible at all. Treatments also reduced size of the liver and results were confirmed by both X-ray and CAT scan.

Studies have shown how manipulation of tumour pH with sodium
bicarbonate enhances some forms of chemotherapy. [iii] Proteins can be modified both in vivo and in vitro by increases in acidity. In fact
pH is the regulatory authority that controls most cellular processes.
The pH balance of the human bloodstream is recognized by medical
physiology texts as one of the most important biochemical balances in all of human body chemistry. pH is the acronym for “Potential
Hydrogen”. In definition, it is the degree of concentration of
hydrogen ions in a substance or solution. It is measured on a
logarithmic scale from 0 to 14. Higher numbers mean a substance is
more alkaline in nature and there is a greater potential for
absorbing more hydrogen ions. Lower numbers indicate more acidity
with less potential for absorbing hydrogen ions.

Our body pH is very important because pH controls the speed of our
body’s biochemical reactions. It does this by controlling the speed
of enzyme activity as well as the speed that electricity moves
through our body. The higher (more alkaline) the pH of a substance or
solution, the more electrical resistance that substance or solution
holds. Therefore, electricity travels slower with higher pH. If we
say something has an acid pH, we are saying it is hot and fast.Â
Alkaline pH on the other hand, biochemically speaking, is slow and
cool. Cancer tissues have a much higher concentration of toxic
chemicals, pesticides, etc then do healthy tissues.

In 1973, a study conducted by the Department of Occupational Health at Hebrew University-Hadassah Medical School in Jerusalem found that when cancerous breast tissue is compared with non-cancerous tissue from elsewhere in the same woman’s body, the concentration of toxic chemicals such as DDT and PCBs was “much increased in the malignant tissue compared to the normal breast and adjacent adipose tissue.”[iv] This should say something to the oncologists of the world about chemical aetiologies that are going undiagnosed and  untreated.

Part of any successful cancer treatment includes chelation and
detoxification of heavy metals and a host of toxic chemicals, which
are all invading our bodies€™ everyday. It is literally raining
mercury, uranium contamination is increasing, lead we are discovering is even more toxic than anyone ever believed and is even in the bread that we eat arsenic is in our chicken, the government still wants you to get your yearly mercury flu shot, dentists of course are still using hundreds of tons of mercury exposing patients to internalized toxic waste dumps (mercury vapours from hell), fluoride is still put in the water and chlorine is breathed in most showers. This just covers a small slice of the toxic disaster that is the hallmark of life in the 21st century. But oncologists have just not been able to understand that cancer patients are suffering from poisoning on a massive scale with all the chemicals scientists have alreadyestablished cause cancer.

The IMVA recommends alkaline foods and sodium bicarbonate so that the pH of the blood remains high, which in turn means that the blood is capable of carrying more oxygen. This in turn keeps every cell in the body at peak efficiency and helps the cell eliminate waste products.

Detoxification and chelation will proceed more easily and safely
under slightly alkaline conditions. Increased urinary pH reduces
oxidative injury in the kidney so it behoves us to work clinically
with bicarbonate.

Patients receiving sodium bicarbonate achieved urine pHs of 6.5 as
opposed to 5.6 with those receiving sodium chloride. This
alkalinization is theorized to have a protective effect against the
formation of free-radicals that may cause nephropathy. [v]

Dr. Michael Metro

Body ph level changes are intense in the profundity of their
biological effects. Even genes directly experience external pH. pH
differentially regulates a large number of proteins. Increased
oxidative stress, which correlates almost exponentially with ph
changes into the acidic, is especially dangerous to the mitochondria,
which suffer the greatest under oxidative duress. Epigenetics, which
may now have begun eclipsing traditional genetics, commonly describes how factors such as diet and smoking, rather than inheritance influence how genes behave.

The great advantage of knowing the prime cause of a disease is that
it can then be attacked logically and over a broad front.

Dr. Otto Warburg

10676288_861664070518028_918353520466691917_n

Dr. Otto Warburg, two times Nobel Prize winner, stated in his book,
The Metabolism of Tumors that the primary cause of cancer was the replacement of oxygen in the respiratory cell chemistry by the fermentation of sugar. The growth of cancer cells is initiated by a fermentation process, which can be triggered only in the absence of oxygen at the cell level. What Warburg was describing was a classic picture of acidic conditions. Just like overworked muscle cells manufacture lactic acid by-products as waste, cancerous cells spill lactic acid and other acidic compounds causing acid pH.

After we just saw how important sulphur is in human health and how
useful a basic chemical like sodium thiosulfate can be, we now get a
crash course in the power of sodium bicarbonate and the act of
instantly turning cancer cells alkaline. Might as well shoot a guided
cruise missile at them – so effective, safe, quick and precise is
sodium bicarbonate, inexpensive as well. Just a few pennies a day of
it will keep cancer further away, keeping it at arms length from
ourselves, patients and loved ones. It is something we can use to
treat our water with as well, excellent to put in distilled or
reverse osmosis water or any water for that matter.

A true understanding of cancer is impossible without understanding
why some tissues in the body are deficient in oxygen and therefore
prone to cancer. Cancerous tissues are acidic, whereas healthy
tissues are alkaline. Water (H2O) decomposes into H+ and OH-.

When a solution contains more H+ than OH- then it is said to be acid. When it contains more OH- than H+ then it is said to be alkaline. When oxygen enters an acid solution it can combine with H+ ions to form water. Oxygen helps to neutralize the acid, while at the same time the acid prevents oxygen from reaching the tissues that need it.
Acidic tissues are devoid of free oxygen. An alkaline solution is
just the reverse. Two hydroxyl ions (OH-) can combine to produce one water molecule and one oxygen atom. In other words, an alkaline
solution can provide oxygen to the tissues.

The pH scale goes from 0 to 14, with 7 being neutral. Below 7 is acid
and above 7 is alkaline. The blood, lymph and cerebral spinal fluid
in the human body are designed to be slightly alkaline at a pH of
7.4.

At a pH slightly above 7.4 cancer cells become dormant and at pH 8.5
cancer cells will die while healthy cells will live. This has given
rise to a variety of treatments based on increasing the alkalinity of
the tissues such as vegetarian diet, the drinking of fresh fruit and
vegetable juices, and dietary supplementation with alkaline minerals
such as calcium, potassium, magnesium, caesium and rubidium. But
nothing can compare to the instant alkalinizing power of sodium
bicarbonate for safe and effective treatment of cancer.

Like magnesium chloride or sulphates are excellent emergency
medicines, basic chemicals, nutritional in nature, sodium bicarbonate
is a nutritional medicine meaning it cannot and will not end up
controlled by CODEX. To control bicarbonate they would have to demand mothers stop making cake with it. We might thus identify sodium bicarbonate as an emergency medicine for cancer with the above supporting approaches working on broader levels to help overall physiology change to a degree where body chemistry is unfavourable for new cancer growth.

Cancer seems to grow slowly in a highly acid environment (because the acids cause it to partially destroy itself) and may actually grow
more quickly as your body becomes more alkaline prior to reaching the healthy pH slightly above 7.4 where the cancer becomes dormant.
Therefore it is important to get pH above 7.4 quickly. Once one has
achieved a pH above 7.4, it is useful to monitor saliva pH regularly
to ensure that the body remains sufficiently alkaline.

Earlier and more frequent use of sodium bicarbonate was associated
with higher early resuscitability rates and with better long-term
neurological outcome. Sodium bicarbonate is beneficial during CPR.
[vi]

“The therapeutic treatment of bicarbonate salts can be administered
orally, through aerosol, intravenously and through catheter for
direct targeting of tumors. All of Dr. Tullio Simoncinis treatments
with sodium bicarbonate are directed as specifically as possible to
the organs involved, for example, vaginally as well as abdominally
into the peritoneal space for cervical cancer, through the hepatic
artery for liver cancer in order to get the solution as close to the
affected area as possible. Sodium bicarbonate administered orally,
via aerosol or intravenously can achieve positive results in most
tumors, including the brain, while others, such as the serious ones
of the bones can remain unaffected. Dr. Simoncini, with the help of
interventionist radiologists was able to reach those areas of the
body that had previously been inaccessible. This was achieved through positioning appropriate catheters either in cavities for peritoneum and pleura, or in arteries to reach other organs.[vii]

The most effective measure to treat RT-induced mucositis in patients
with head and neck cancer is frequent oral rinsing with a sodium
bicarbonate rinse, to reduce the amount of oral microbial flora.
[viii]

Case two: A nine-year-old child is hospitalized and diagnosed with
Ewings Sarcoma on the right humerus. Despite several chemotherapy
cycles surgery removed the humeral bone. Growth of three tumor masses continued despite continued efforts to stop progression.

Sodium bicarbonate salts treatment were then started administered by catheter into the right sub-clavian artery in order to administer the salts (phleboclysis of 500 cc at five per cent) directly on the
tumoral masses. Of the 3 masses shown by the scographic scan of May 7, 2001, whose size is respectively:

a. 6,5 cm
b. 4,4 cm
c. 2,4 cm

After the sodium bicarbonate salts treatment only one tumor was left, with a size of only 1.5 cm, which is most likely residual scarring,
as shown by the echography of September 10, 2001.

Sodium bicarbonate injection is also indicated in the treatment of
metabolic acidosis which may occur in severe renal disease,
uncontrolled diabetes, and circulatory insufficiency due to shock or
severe dehydration, extracorporeal circulation of blood, cardiac
arrest and severe primary lactic acidosis. Sodium bicarbonate is
further indicated in the treatment of drug intoxications, including
barbiturates. Sodium carbonate has been found effective in treating
poisoning or overdose from many chemicals and pharmaceutical drugs by negating the cardiotoxic and neurotoxic effects. [ix] Sodium
bicarbonate is useful in treating neurological disorders in children.

Knowledge of sodium bicarbonate is important for parents because the rate of childhood cancer is growing exponentially. But parents who resist the radiation burning, cutting and the lethal chemicals are
regularly hauled before the courts only to have their children taken
away from them.  Oncologists are increasingly resorting to the justice
system to have children made wards of the courts who then turn them over to medically irresponsible practitioners. It is inexcusable
separating a child from his mother and father in the middle of a
medical crisis. Adding to the stress by tormenting patients hearts
and souls has nothing to do with safe or effective medicine. The
naked truth is doctors and medical institutions have not earned the
necessary trust for this level of intervention in peoples lives. With
patient safety slipping year by year,[x] children are not safe in
hospitals, much less so if forced at gunpoint from their parents
embrace.

An extremely simple therapy used by physicians who treat autism is to supply a mild antidote that neutralizes the excess acids. The most
convenient product is a non-prescription drug called Alka-Seltzer
Gold„. Do not use any other kind of Alka-Seltzer. Alka-Seltzer Gold„
is simply a very safe product (sodium and potassium bicarbonate) that helps to neutralize excess acids of any kind.

Dr. William Shaw

Biological Treatments for Autism and PDD

One mother wrote, that it worked so well for both of my children that
the die-off was an uneventful experience, even though they both had
very high levels of yeast. The restoring of acid/alkaline balance
also relieves many allergies. These children also had grave disturbances in electrolyte chemistry, and tended to be acidotic (low
CO). The data that unfolded was fascinating and clearly earmarked the acidosis and hypoxic state (low serum bicarbonate = low O2 levels).

Potassium bicarbonate, sodium bicarbonate, magnesium carbonate and the like were used. Now we began to understand why so many children responded to Buffered C (potassium bicarbonate, calcium carbonate, magnesium carbonate), and others needed a more specific buffer (in some children for example niacin was grossly depleted and they required niacin bicarbonate) , wrote Patricia Kane.

The acid/alkaline balance is one of the most overlooked aspects of
health, though many have written much about it. In general, the
American public is heavily acid, excepting vegetarians.

Case three: A 62-year-old patient undergoes surgery in December 1998 for endometrial adenocarcinoma, followed by successive cycles of radiotherapy and anti-hormone therapy. Following the thickening of the peritoneum and the growth of several lymph nodes due to
carcinosis; from the clinical point of view, the patients condition
decayed with the presence of exhaustion, general swelling, intestinal
meteorism, irregularity of evacuation, steady feeling of heaviness
and blood pressure instability. Treatment with a 5% sodium
bicarbonate solution administered alternately thru an endoperitoneal catheter and via IV showed rapid improvement to a normal condition of health. A final CAT scan confirms the regression of the peritoneal carcinosis and a stabilization of the size of the lymph nodes when compared to the preceding year.

The kidneys are usually the first organs to show chemical damage upon uranium exposure, military manuals suggest doses or infusions of sodium bicarbonate to help alkalinize the urine if this happens.

This makes the uranyl ion less kidney-toxic and promotes excretion of the non-toxic uranium-carbonate complex. The oral administration of sodium bicarbonate diminishes the severity of the changes produced by uranium in the kidneys.[xi]

Case four: A 40-year-old patient underwent surgical intervention
(left radical mastectomy) for mammarian carcinoma seven months
earlier. After three months of chemotherapy, the patient is affected
by: diffused pulmonary and hepatic metastasis; bone metastasis
particularly to the fifth and sixth lumbar vertebrae, with invasion
and compression of the medullar channel, which is causing extreme
pain which makes the patient unresponsive to any treatment. All pain
suppressant drugs ” morphine included ” are totally ineffective and
the patient is totally prostrate even unable to sleep. Believing that
fungal colonies amassed in the medullar channel will respond to
administration of sodium bicarbonate salts, lumbar injections are
begun.

Dr Tullio Simoncini recounts: As I administer it by slowly injecting
50 cc of sodium bicarbonate solution at 8.4 %, the patient tosses and
with a thread of a voice confesses to me that she has slept only two
hours in the last week. Exhausted, she whispers to me: If only I
could sleep half an hour tonight. But the day after, she calls me on
the phone and says: I have slept all night. After two more lumbar
injections of the bicarbonate salts in the next month, the pain
disappeared completely. Magnetic Resonance imaging reports performed before and after treatment were defined by hospital head of the radiology department as “shocking.”

Sodium bicarbonate is the chemical compound with the formula NaHCO3.

Sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) is commonly used as an antacid for
short-term relief of stomach upset, to correct acidosis in kidney
disorders, to make the urine alkaline during bladder infections and
to minimize uric acid crystallization during gout treatment.
Prescription sodium bicarbonate products are given by injection to
treat metabolic acidosis and some drug intoxications. Sodium
bicarbonate is available as a non-prescription medical as well as a
general house hold item. It is also used with other non-prescription
drugs for short-term treatment of various conditions to treat
anything from fever to moderate pain.

Sodium bicarbonate possesses the property of absorbing heavy metals, dioxins and furans. Comparison of cancer tissue with healthy tissue from the same person shows that the cancer tissue has a much higher concentration of toxic chemicals, pesticides, etc. Sodium bicarbonate neutralizes acids present in gases (in particular hydrochloric acid, sulphur dioxide, hydrofluoric acid) to form sodium salts (sodiumchloride, sodium sulphate, sodium fluoride, sodium carbonate), which are all known as Residual Sodium Chemicals. Sodium bicarbonate can be made into a paste salve with vinegar, it relieves burning from bug stings (particularly bee stings), poison ivy, nettles, and sunburn.

It is used as an antacid to treat acid indigestion and heartburn.
Mixed with water in a 10% solution can soften earwax for removal.

Substituting a sodium bicarbonate solution for saline infusion prior
to administration of radiocontrast material seems to reduce the
incidence of nephropathy. [xii]

Dr. Thomas P. Kennedy

American Medical Association

Because sodium bicarbonate has long been known and is widely used, it has many other names including sodium hydrogen carbonate, sodium bicarb, baking soda, bread soda, cooking soda, bicarb soda, saleratus or bicarbonate of soda. It is soluble in water. This white solid is crystalline but often appears as a fine powder. It has a slight alkaline taste resembling that of sodium carbonate. It is a component of the mineral natron and is found dissolved in many mineral springs.  It is also produced artificially. World wide production is on the scale of 100,000 ton/year. Sodium bicarbonate is primarily used in cooking (baking) where it reacts with other components to release carbon dioxide, that helps dough “rise.”

It is commonly used to increase the pH and total alkalinity of the
water for pools and spas. Sodium bicarbonate can be added as a simple solution for restoring the pH balance of water that has a high level of chlorine. It is sometimes used in septic tanks to control pH and bacteria.

Sodium bicarbonate- rich mineral water in conjunction with a low-salt diet may have a beneficial effect on calcium homeostasis. [xiii]

Distilled water is not safe, it lacks bicarbonates and minerals and
yes, it is acid forming to the body. Yet it is an excellent aid in
detoxification and chelation for its purity pulls on toxicities in
the body. Part of the reason why our body is acid is that it lacks
enough bicarbonate necessary to neutralize the acid. Whenever the
water lacks the proper bicarbonates to neutralize the water in
distilled water your body basically becomes a little more acid. But
we can easily treat distilled or reverse osmosis water by adding
bicarbonate and magnesium and perhaps even some sodium thiosulfate.

(The art and science of water treatment will be covered in The Waters
of Life, another IMVA publication due out later this year. The
conscious use of water favourably increases medical outcomes, often
it even determines the prognosis. You cannot separate out hydration
from pH. Dehydration would certainly push the body toward acidity.)
pH of the blood is the most important factor to determine the state
of the micro-organisms in the blood.

The native chemical and physical properties of sodium bicarbonate
account for its wide range of applications, including cleaning,
deodorizing, buffering, and fire extinguishing. Sodium bicarbonate
neutralizes odours chemically, rather than masking or absorbing them. Consequently, it is used in bath salts and deodorant body powders.

Sodium bicarbonate tends to maintain a pH of 8.1 (7 is neutral) even
when acids, which lower pH, or bases, which raise pH, are added to
the solution. Its ability to tabletize makes it a good effervescent
ingredient in antacids and denture cleaning products. Sodium
bicarbonate is also found in some anti-plaque mouthwash products and toothpaste.

Sodium bicarbonate also is indicated in severe diarrhoea which is
often accompanied by a significant loss of bicarbonate. Vigorous
bicarbonate therapy is required in any form of metabolic acidosis
where a rapid increase in plasma total CO2 content is crucial e.g.
cardiac arrest, circulatory insufficiency due to shock or severe
dehydration , and in severe primary lactic acidosis or severe
diabetic acidosis.

Sodium Bicarbonate Injection, USP is administered by the intravenous route. In cardiac arrest, a rapid intravenous dose of one to two 50 mL vials (44.6 to 100 mEq) may be given initially and continued at a rate of 50 mL (44.6 to 50 mEq) every 5 to 10 minutes if necessary (as indicated by arterial pH and blood gas monitoring) to reverse the acidosis. Caution should be observed in emergencies where very rapid infusion of large quantities of bicarbonate is indicated.

Bicarbonate solutions are hypertonic and may produce an undesirable rise in plasma sodium concentration in the process. of correcting the metabolic acidosis. In cardiac arrest, however, the risks from acidosis exceed those of hypernatremia.

In the current system, if a promising compound cant be patented, it
is highly unlikely ever to make it to market no matter how well it
performs in the laboratory or in emergency room situations. The
hormone melatonin,[xiv] sold as an inexpensive food supplement in the United States, has repeatedly been shown to slow the growth of
various cancers when used in conjunction with conventional
treatments. Dr. Paolo Lissoni, another Italian oncologist has written
many articles about this hormone and conducted clinical trials. But
he has despaired over the pharmaceutical industry total lack of
interest in his treatment approach.

We need a new approach to fight cancer, one that will work safely and
effectively since the majority of us are now destined to have to
suffer through cancer at one point or another in our lives. The
situation in the field of oncology is horrendous and in the area of
childhood oncology they have earned their place in the book The
Terror of Paediatric Medicine, (which one can download as a free e-
book.)

Most people today cringe at the idea of finding a cancer then
slashing, burning and poisoning it to smithereens. Most would agree
that the mainstream cancer approach offers only marginal benefits at
best, and providers push screening and aggressive treatment in part
because they have nothing else to give, and also because it is very
profitable.

If the body’s cellular metabolism and pH is balanced it is
susceptible to little illness or disease.

Since 1971, when President Nixon declared war on cancer, the budget of the National Cancer Institute has increased to $4.8 billion from half a billion and cancer rates are still going up. For most of the
past half-century, medical treatment of invasive tumors like those of
the breast and colon has relied mainly on drugs, radiation or both,
in effect carpet-bombing the DNA of cancer cells. These highly toxic
treatments do not address the root causes of cancer and are extremely dangerous, medical approaches involving the highest risks.

The great variety of cancers must reflect a fundamental mechanism by which the disease arises, one that has not been so clearly apparent
until now.

Though allopathic medicine already uses sodium bicarbonate it will
not any day soon turn to its own arsenal of already available safe
and inexpensive medications like sodium bicarbonate or magnesium
chloride. The medical industrial complex seems unwilling to change
its views on cancer so patients will need to quietly ask their
doctors for intravenous bicarbonate without specifying it as a
substance they want to use to cure their cancer. It will be easier to
find someone if one approaches with a need to treat acidic conditions
than the actual cancer. Few doctors are willing to risk their licenses so it is better not to put them in an uncomfortable situation that they cannot control.

The closer the pH is to 7.35 – 7.45, the higher our level of health
and well being and our ability to resist states of disease.

Sadly this does not address the need for the use of catheters which
target tumors more directly thus pushing us toward a more complete
protocol that will target cancer in a more general and comprehensive
way. This needs to be done anyway because killing the tumor with a
rush of alkalinity that provokes an oxygen rush into the cells will
not prevent the condition from reoccurring. Though we can think that
acidity is a basic cause of cancer a more basic cause is addressed
when we look at what leads to the acidic conditions that are so
prevalent in our bodies today.

Sodium bicarbonate is an anti-fungin substance that is very
diffusible and thus very effective.

Dr Tullio Simoncini, an Italian Ocologists  states, “It is useful to consider the extreme sensitivity of fungi to saline and electrolytic solutions. These solutions, because of their extreme capacity for diffusion, are able to reach all the mycelial biological expressions, including the most infinitesimal ones. Salts and bicarbonates, by making the “terrain” completely inorganic, eliminates the slightest organic fonts that fungi could use for nourishment. In this context, sodium bicarbonate, which is currently used in children’s oral candidiases, appears to be a simple and handy weapon capable of uprooting, inhibiting, or attenuating any neoplastic formation wherever it is possible to easily apply it.

According to Dr. Robert O. Young, Director of Research at The
pH Miracle Living Center, Cancer is actually a four-letter word ACID, especially lactic acid as a waste product due to the low oxygen level and waste products of yeast and fungus.

For centuries, medicated baths have been one of the first lines of
treatment for psoriasis. Even today, with sophisticated
immunosuppressive treatments available, Dead Sea salts and spa waters are recognized to be beneficial in the management of psoriatic
patients.

To assess statistically the efficacy of sodium bicarbonate baths in
psoriasis patients, thirty-one patients with mild-moderate psoriasis
were studied. Almost all patients who used NaHCO3- reported a
statistically valuable improvement. NaHCO3- baths reduced itchiness
and irritation; in general, the patients themselves recognized a
beneficial impact on their psoriasis, so much so that they have
continued to bathe in NaHCO3- even after the end of the study. [xv]

Sodium bicarbonate therapy is harmless, fast and effective because it
is extremely diffusible. A therapy with bicarbonate for cancer should
be set up with strong dosage, continuously, and with pauseless cycles
in a destruction work which should proceed from the beginning to the end without interruption for at least 7-8 days. In general a mass of 2-3-4 centimetres will begin to consistently regress from the third
to the fourth day, and collapses from the fourth to the fifth.

Generally speaking, the maximum limit of the dosage that can be
administered in a session gravitates around 500 cc of sodium
bicarbonate at five per cent solution, with the possibility of
increasing or decreasing the dosage by 20 per cent in function of the
body mass of the individual to be treated and in the presence of
multiple localisations upon which to apportion a greater quantity of
salts, instructs Dr Simoncini.

In the early stages of acidic pH in the body’s tissues, the warning
symptoms are mild. These include such things as skin eruptions,
headaches, allergies, colds, flu and sinus problems. These symptoms
are frequently treated (manipulated) with antibiotic drugs and
suppressive medications. The longer and the deeper we become acidic the more our illness takes hold so it’s best to fight acidic
conditions early on and in every presenting clinical situation.

Certainly a highly toxic drug like anti viral Tamiflu wont do a
fraction of the job sodium bicarbonate will do especially if it’s
combined with magnesium chloride and iodine as well as high levels of vitamin C.
