An interesting article to receive from the Robert Young’s educational web site,

following our conversation last night about cancer in the body. I have heard

that the body can’t absorb Glutathione from oral sources as suggested here

in addition it is very expensive. I also have read two alternative treatment

plans for cancer that recommend high doses of Glutatione. The suggested

solution from the ” Natural Prostrate Cure” book was to take an inexpensive

600 mg capsule of “NAC” N-acetyl-cystein to enhance your glutathione levels.

Black Cohosh, Milk Thistle May Slow Cancer Growth

Two herbal remedies may help prevent two different types of cancer. Black cohosh, an herb traditionally used to relieve menopausal symptoms, may have a benefit in addressing breast cancer, and in laboratory studies appears to cause breast cancer cells to self-destruct. Researchers at Columbia University in New York City suggest that if their findings are confirmed by further studies, black cohosh ultimately might have a role in the prevention or treatment of the disease. The study was published in the November 2007 issue of Phytomedicine. Meanwhile, new findings from the University of California, Irvine, suggest that milk thistle might someday help prevent liver cancer. In laboratory studies, silibinin, the active component of milk thistle, prompted certain liver cancer cells to destroy themselves and blocked their proliferation. The compound also affected the expression of genes that promote the formation of blood vessels needed to nourish fast growing cancer cells. Milk thistle has long been used as an herbal remedy for liver disease. These results indicate the need for clinical research to determine whether silibinin could help prevent liver cancer in humans. The study was published in the October 28, 2007 issue of the World Journal of Gastroenterology.

Resveratrol fights breast cancer (grapes, berries) It activates the p53 tumor suppessor protein and promotes apoptosis.

Olive oil’s oleic acid suppressed the oncogene that spreads cancers.

Should have 1000 mg. supplement of Vit. D. “A multitude of studies have shown cancer risk reductions of 50% and greater on higher vit D status. It enables control over the genes that regulate cell proliferation.

“Chemo drugs have a high rate of failure because they usually kill only specific types of cancer cells within a tumor. The remaining cancer cells are then free to mutate and become highly resistant. [It seems to me that radiation has the same problem; it gets the crazy cells locally but not throughout the body, hence the need for something systemic like Protocell, Rife machine, etc.}

Consortium of Academic Health Centers for Integrative medicine had 27 members in 2005. http://www.imconsortium.org. They define Integrative Medicine as “reaffirms the importance of relationship between practitioner and patient, focuses on the whole person, is informed by evidence, and makes use of all appropriate therapeutic approaches to achieve optimal health and healing.”

Breast Health suggestions from John R. Lee, MD, in an audiotape “Natural Progesterone and Women’s Health.”

He recommends 5-20 mil. of   Progest cream a day. Wild yam isn’t effective. Apply to face, neck, chest, arms and hands.  Is also useful for PMS and postpartum depression.

Pharmaceutical companies can’t patent unless they use synthetic hormones and use petrochemicals to produce them.

Imbalance with too much estrogen vs. progesterone produces abdominal fat an “estrogen factory,” water retention, breast and uterine cancer, fibrocystic breasts.

Estridiol increases the rate of cancer cell growth while progesterone restrains growth.

Hormones slow bone loss. It takes 12-14 years to replace the long bone in the leg, it’s living tissue. Smaller bones like the vertebra and patella in the knee take 4-5 years.

For breast health: lower insulin: Eliminate sugar; limit alcohol and the “bad” estrogen, estriodiol. Eat cruciferous veggies like broccoli and cabbage and lots of other veggies and fruits; eat fiber as it aids in excretion of excess estrogen and keeps insulin levels healthy, exercise to block estrogen production, avoid high fat consumption and omega 6 oils like corn oil (worst are hydrogenated), eat omega fist oils and olive oil, eat soy and flax and tumeric as they block estrogen binding to cell receptors, drink green tea, eat an Asian or Mediterranean diet, avoid chemical estrogens in pesticides and animal fat.

I had regular massages, ate foods high in antioxidants (beets, red cabbage, and green, orange, and yellow vegetables), and drank green tea along with heavy doses of antioxidant vitamins. I took hypericum to repair nerve damage. I used visualization therapy during the actual radiation treatments, imagining cool ocean water lapping over my spinal cord for 30 minutes before, all during the treatment, and for 30 minutes, every day for eight weeks.

After about six weeks of radiation, I was told to postpone the final two weeks of treatments for a month. My white blood cell production had suffered, and they wanted me to come in once a week to monitor it. I immediately began taking the Chinese herb astragalus. A week later my white blood cell count was normal. The doctors were stunned, but the treatments resumed, and I remained the picture of health at the end of the radiation treatments, while other patients receiving the same doses and length of treatment were compromised.

Physical recovery is not the end of the recovery process. Emotional recovery and the emotional implications of the diagnosis and treatment may not seem critical to physical healing, but by the time the patient has managed through the physical recovery, his journey is just beginning. My process was four years long, and undoubtedly the most fulfilling of my life in terms of self-awareness, life improvement, and personal development.

Low Dose Naltrexone

FDA-approved naltrexone, in a low dose, can boost the immune system — helping those with HIV/AIDS, cancer, autoimmune diseases, and central nervous system disorders.

“Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) may well be the most important therapeutic breakthrough in over fifty years. It provides a new, safe and inexpensive method of medical treatment by mobilizing the natural defenses of one’s own immune system.

LDN substantially reduces health care costs and improves treatment of a wide array of diseases. Unfortunately, because naltrexone has been without patent protection for many years, no pharmaceutical company will bear the expense of the large clinical trials necessary for FDA approval of LDN’s new special uses. It is now up to public institutions to seize the opportunity that LDN offers.”

— David Gluck, MD

What is low-dose naltrexone and why is it important?

Low-dose naltrexone holds great promise for the millions of people worldwide with autoimmune diseases or central nervous system disorders or who face a deadly cancer.

In the developing world, LDN could provide the first low-cost, easy to administer, and side-effect-free therapy for HIV/AIDS.Naltrexone itself was approved by the FDA in 1984 in a 50mg dose for the purpose of helping heroin or opium addicts, by blocking the effect of such drugs. By blocking opioid receptors, naltrexone also blocks the reception of the opioid hormones that our brain and adrenal glands produce: beta-endorphin and metenkephalin. Many body tissues have receptors for these endorphins and enkephalins, including virtually every cell of the body’s immune system.

In 1985, Bernard Bihari, MD, a physician with a clinical practice in New York City, discovered the effects of a much smaller dose of naltrexone (approximately 3mg once a day) on the body’s immune system. He found that this low dose, taken at bedtime, was able to enhance a patient’s response to infection by HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. [Note: Subsequently, the optimal adult dosage of LDN has been found to be 4.5mg.]

In the mid-1990’s, Dr. Bihari found that patients in his practice with cancer (such as lymphoma or pancreatic cancer) could benefit, in some cases dramatically, from LDN. In addition, people who had an autoimmune disease (such as lupus) often showed prompt control of disease activity while taking LDN.

How does LDN work?

LDN boosts the immune system, activating the body’s own natural defenses. Up to the present time, the question of “What controls the immune system?” has not been present in the curricula of medical colleges and the issue has not formed a part of the received wisdom of practicing physicians. Nonetheless, a body of research over the past two decades has pointed repeatedly to one’s own endorphin secretions (our internal opioids) as playing the central role in the beneficial orchestration of the immune system, and recognition of the facts is growing.

Witness these statements from a review article of medical progress in the November 13, 2003 issue of the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine: “Opioid-Induced Immune Modulation: …. Preclinical evidence indicates overwhelmingly that opioids alter the development, differentiation, and function of immune cells, and that both innate and adaptive systems are affected.1,2 Bone marrow progenitor cells, macrophages, natural killer cells, immature thymocytes and T cells, and B cells are all involved. The relatively recent identification of opioid-related receptors on immune cells makes it even more likely that opioids have direct effects on the immune system.3”

The brief blockade of opioid receptors between 2 a.m. and 4 a.m. that is caused by taking LDN at bedtime each night is believed to produce a prolonged up-regulation of vital elements of the immune system by causing an increase in endorphin and enkephalin production. Normal volunteers who have taken LDN in this fashion have been found to have much higher levels of beta-endorphins circulating in their blood in the following days. Animal research by I. Zagon, PhD, and his colleagues has shown a marked increase in metenkephalin levels as well. [Note: Additional information for Dr. Zagon can be found at the end of this page.]

Bihari says that his patients with HIV/AIDS who regularly took LDN before the availability of HAART were generally spared any deterioration of their important helper T cells (CD4+).

In human cancer, research by Zagon over many years has demonstrated inhibition of a number of different human tumors in laboratory studies by using endorphins and low dose naltrexone. It is suggested that the increased endorphin and enkephalin levels, induced by LDN, work directly on the tumors’ opioid receptors — and, perhaps, induce cancer cell death (apoptosis). In addition, it is believed that they act to increase natural killer cells and other healthy immune defenses against cancer.

In general, in people with diseases that are partially or largely triggered by a deficiency of endorphins (including cancer and autoimmune diseases), or are accelerated by a deficiency of endorphins (such as HIV/AIDS), restoration of the body’s normal production of endorphins is the major therapeutic action of LDN

What diseases has it been useful for and how effective is it?

Bernard Bihari, MD, as well as other physicians and researchers, have described beneficial effects of LDN on a variety of diseases:

Cancers:

Bladder Cancer

Breast Cancer

Carcinoid Colon & Rectal Cancer

Glioblastoma

Liver Cancer

Lung Cancer (Non-Small Cell)

Lymphocytic Leukemia (chronic)

Lymphoma (Hodgkin’s and Non-Hodgkin’s)

Malignant Melanoma

Multiple Myeloma

Neuroblastoma

Ovarian Cancer

Pancreatic Cancer

Prostate Cancer (untreated)

Renal Cell Carcinoma

Throat Cancer

Uterine Cancer

Other conditions:

ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease)

Alzheimer’s Disease

Ankylosing Spondylitis

Autism Spectrum Disorders

Behcet’s Disease

Celiac Disease

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

CREST syndrome

Crohn’s Disease

Emphysema (COPD)

Endometriosis

Wegener’s Granulomatosis

LDN has demonstrated efficacy in thousands of cases.

Cancer…As of mid-2004, Dr. Bihari reported having treated over 300 patients who had a cancer that had failed to respond to standard treatments. Of that group, some 50%, after four to six months treatment with LDN, began to demonstrate a halt in cancer growth and, of those, over one-third have shown objective signs of tumor shrinkage.

Autoimmune diseases. Within the group of patients who presented with an autoimmune disease (see above list), none have failed to respond to LDN; all have experienced a halt in progression of their illness. In many patients there was a marked remission in signs and symptoms of the disease. The greatest number of patients within the autoimmune group are people with multiple sclerosis, of whom there were some 400 in Dr. Bihari’s practice. Less than 1% of these patients has ever experienced a fresh attack of MS while they maintained their regular LDN nightly therapy.

HIV/AIDS. As of September 2003, Dr. Bihari had been treating 350 AIDS patients using LDN in conjunction with accepted AIDS therapies. Over the prior 7 years over 85% of these patients showed no detectable levels of the HIV virus — a much higher success rate than most current AIDS treatments, and with no significant side effects. It is also worth noting that many HIV/AIDS patients have been living symptom-free for years taking only LDN with no other medications.

Central Nervous System disorders. Anecdotal reports continue to be received concerning beneficial effects of LDN on the course of Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS—Lou Gehrig’s disease), and primary lateral sclerosis. Dr. Jaquelyn McCandless has found a very positive effect of LDN, in appropriately reduced dosage and applied as a transdermal cream, in children with autism.

How is it possible that one medication can impact such a wide range of disorders?

The disorders listed above all share a particular feature: in all of them, the immune system plays a central role. Low blood levels of endorphins are generally present, contributing to the disease-associated immune deficiencies.

Research by others — on neuropeptide receptors expressed by various human tumors — has found opioid receptors in many types of cancer:Brain tumors (both astrocytoma and glioblastoma) Breast cancer Endometrial cancer Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma Myeloid leukemia Lung cancer (both small cell and non-small cell) Neuroblastoma and others…

These findings suggest the possibility for a beneficial LDN effect in a wide variety of common cancers.

Are there any side effects or cautionary warnings?

Side effects:

LDN has virtually no side effects. Occasionally, during the first week’s use of LDN, patients may complain of some difficulty sleeping. This rarely persists after the first week. Should it do so, dosage can be reduced from 4.5mg to 3mg nightly.

Cautionary warnings: Because LDN blocks opioid receptors throughout the body for three or four hours, people using medicine that is an opioid agonist, i.e. narcotic medication — such as Ultram (tramadol), morphine, Percocet, Duragesic patch or codeine-containing medication — should not take LDN until such medicine is completely out of one’s system. Patients who have become dependant on daily use of narcotic-containing pain medication may require 10 days to 2 weeks of slowly weaning off of such drugs entirely (while first substituting full doses of non-narcotic pain medications) before being able to begin LDN safely. Those patients who are taking thyroid hormone replacement for a diagnosis of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis with hypothyroidism ought to begin LDN at the lowest range (1.5mg for an adult). Be aware that LDN may lead to a prompt decrease in the autoimmune disorder, which then may require a rapid reduction in the dose of thyroid hormone replacement in order to avoid symptoms of hyperthyroidism. Full-dose naltrexone (50mg) carries a cautionary warning against its use in those with liver disease. This warning was placed because of adverse liver effects that were found in experiments involving 300mg daily. The 50mg dose does not apparently produce impairment of liver function nor, of course, do the much smaller 3mg and 4.5mg doses. People who have received organ transplants and who therefore are taking immunosuppressive medication on a permanent basis are cautioned against the use of LDN because it may act to counter the effect of those medications.

Life Over Cancer: The Block Center Program for Integrative Cancer Treatment Hardcover – April 21, 2009

by Keith Block (Author), Andrew Weil M.D. (Foreword)

Dr. Block believes boosting immune support during chemotherapy is an important part of treatment. The nutrients selenium, beta-carotene and zinc increase natural killer cells and increase their cancer-killer activity. In addition he recommends beta-glucans, probiotics and glutamine to support immune health.

Other supplements Dr. Block recommends are: milk thistle, for protection against chemical toxicity; ginger, which reduces nausea and vomiting and detoxifies the body; Fu Zheng Chinese formulas, which help improve vitality and overcome fatigue; protein and amino acid formulas, which reduce muscle loss and help maintain immune and biological functioning; glutamine, which reduces some side effects of treatment; fish oil, which suppresses inflammation; and green tea, which acts as a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.

*I recently interviewed Rebecca Katz, author of The Cancer-Fighting Kitchen.

Rebecca, along with Dr. Andrew Weil and others, all recommended the same person, Dr. Keith Block at the Block Center for Integrative Cancer Care in Illinois and author of Life Over Cancer.Dr. Block believes boosting immune support during chemotherapy is an important part of treatment. The nutrients selenium, beta-carotene and zinc increase natural killer cells and increase their cancer-killer activity. In addition he recommends beta-glucans, probiotics and glutamine to support immune health.

Dr. Block advises his patients avoid:

  • Dairy products (promotes inflammation and mucus production)
  • Red meat (iron supports cancer cells and too high in bad fats)
  • Processed sugary foods (promotes inflammation and fuels cancer)
  • Bad fats (trans fats, saturated fats in processed baked goods)
  • Block advises his patients try these things before chemotherapy:
    • Take two 500 mg capsules of ginger root 15 minutes beforehand
    • Exercise for 15 minutes an hour before treatment (walk, ride bike)
    • Check vitamin D levels in advance (simple blood test)
    • Take fish oil (anti-inflammatory)
    • Take curcumin (anti-inflammatory)
    • Sit outside in morning sun for 15 minutes
  • Block says,”What we have our patients do is take 10-20 grams of glutamine in a bottle of water and have them sip it during chemotherapy. It will help prevent mouth sores. It will boost immune function and it will protect from some of the nerve damage that can occur from chemotherapy.”

Why give people this diet which seems to encourage the growth of cancer at the very same time your oncologist is struggling to kill off the cancer? Especially when there are now some important research studies showing that FASTING (thus cutting out the jun

he latest research findings:

All the research studies we quote are in Cancer Watch on the CANCERactive website. Several important studies seem to point towards the answer for what diet is best if you are having chemotherapy:

  1. a) 2013 research covered in Cancer Watch suggests that Calorie Restriction increases survival times for those on radiotherapy and chemotherapy too (For example, Dr Andrew T Turrisi, Editor of The Oncologist writing on study: Renato Beserga et al. Nutrition Restriction and Radiation – When less is more). Clinical Trials are planned.
  2. b) More than 6 studies in the last three years have shown that glucose feeds cancer cells. In 2012/3 Cancer Watch we cover research showing High Fructose Corn Syrup (think fizzy soft drinks) was found to be even worse. Cutting out these sugars restricts a cancer´s growth. (UCLA)
  3. c) The University of South Florida have shown that starving the body of glucose by using a ´good fat diet´ can return cancer-infected mice to good health. A good fat diet includes eggs, avocado, cold pressed olive oil, flax seed oil and so on. This is called a Ketogenic Diet. Healthy cells can metabolise the ketones for energy, but cancer cells have to have carbohydrate, especially glucose. So you starve them. (See the Ketogenic diet – CLICK HERE).
  1. d) 2012 was a watershed year for research into natural compounds with, for example, polyphenols, resveratrol, quercitin, green tea, curcumin and even aspirin, all being shown to stop cancers reforming, growing and metastases etc etc etc. In the American Cancer Society report reviewing research since 2006, the researchers talked of an ´explosion´ of research and ´overwhelming´ evidence that diet, exercise and weight control could improve survival times and even prevent a cancer returning. Researchers at The National Cancer Institute in America have even shown that bad foods can cause your cancer to come back, while good foods can stop it regrowing (see below).
Cancer cells need glucose, lots of it
It is quite clear why fasting or a ketogenic diet (where the patient focuses on good fats and quality protein at the co
mplete expense of carbohydrates in their diet) might stop a cancer progressing. Cancer cells aren´t like normal, healthy cells. Three factors are important to understand:
•    A healthy cell produces energy by burning specially prepared carbohydrate in the p
•resence of oxygen in the power stations, or mitochondria; whereas a cancer cell makes its energy in a very inefficient process in the body of the cell, burning glucose in the absence of oxygen. Otto Warburg won his Nobel Prize in 1931 telling us this. Refi
•ned by Krebs later, the theory runs that the mitochondria in a cancer cell have effectively ´shut down´, leaving a very primitive cell working in a very primitive way.
•    The waste product from this cancer cell´s energy process is a form of lactic acid an
•    d this can only be detoxified and neutralised by the liver.
•    The liver detoxifies this lactic acid and produces a harmless substance called ….. glucose, which passes back round the body to feed the cancer. ´Alien´ has taken over the controls – it is n
•ow making its own food; using the body system´s to grow! With a very inefficient energy production system and a cancer that wants to grow quickly, glucose is in high demand.
•    Only one or two other fuels may be used instead. For example, research is clea
•    r: High Fructose Corn Syrup can also feed a cancer. But ketones from fats can only feed healthy cells; while people with the highest blood sugar levels develop more cancers and survive least.
•Why feed your cancer?
•    Avoid all cakes, sticky buns, chocolat
•    e, sugar in tea, fizzy soft drinks, Ribena, biscuits, processed and packaged foods.
2. Cancers need growth hormone, as much as they can find
Scientists have recently been looking at giving breast cancer patients bisphonates, which are bone-strengthening d
rugs. Why? Because breast cancers attack bones causing the bone to try to defend and strengthen itself by producing growth hormone. The cancer says ´Thank you´ and uses the growth hormone to boost its own growth and division. It is really taking control of
the body system´s now.
Why would you want to add more growth hormone from cows´ dairy into your body? Avoid all cows´ dairy.
3. Cancers need a blood supply to grow
Scientists also know that tumours need to grow and that demands an increased blood supply.
They have been looking at drugs like thalidomide to stop blood vessels forming in cancer tumours. Growth hormones and other factors in your body can be stimulated by the foods you eat but
research shows clearly that other foods (like garlic, grape seed ext
ract and curcumin) can slow or even stop this process
. Include these ingredients daily.
 At last – the definitive, research-based book on how to build a diet to help beat cancer.

 to read about it.
4. Bad foods help a cancer regrow; good foods can stop this
Oncologists can tell breast cancer patients whether they are o
estrogen-positive or not. Oestrogen is the female sex hormone. In 70 per cent of cases where the woman is positive, they can prescribe drugs to cut oestrogen production (Aromatase Inhibitors).
However, it is now clear many cancers (both male and female) ar
e oestrogen-driven. For example, some brain tumours, colon cancers, prostate cancers, lung cancers, not just female cancers like womb and breast. And the oestrogen doesn´t drive them all in the same way. Two overall routes may be found – one where the oest
rogen drives ´stem cells´ and another where oestrogen (oestradiol) causes havoc inside normal healthy cells.
(1) A great number of studies in 2012 focused on the role of cancer stem cells in a tumour. Work at St Bart´s and the Blizzard Institute in London
have now isolated cancer stem cells from tumours. Cancer stem cells are the driving cells of a cancer, kept in that state by oestrogen. Chemotherapy may destroy a whole tumour but if one cancer stem cell remains, it can all regrow. Crucially

ods containing specific natural compounds can stop the self-renewal´. So, you can guess the ´inappropriate foods´ for yourself. Avoid all refined foods – refined (white) wheat, bread, pasta, oils, junk food and so on. Don´t put it in your mouth if it is no
t natural and whole. Consume extra virgin olive oil, plenty of fibrous vegetables and fruit, whole oats … …
So why eat bad foods if they can make your cancer regrow? Eat the good ones.
Interestingly, the good foods/natural compounds list included
sulph
oraphanes, curcumin, piperine, theanine and choline plus vitamins A and D, genistein (which can block oestrogen) and EGCG from green tea. The researchers added the statement that ´all these can be taken as supplements´.
Curcumin or turmeric can be taken da
ily as a supplement, piperine (from black pepper seems to help its absorption); vitamin D is essential in an anti-cancer programme – if you cannot go in the sunshine for 45 minutes a day, supplement with 5,000 IUs. Genistein is found in Red Clover, the her
b of Hippocrates. It is also found in pulses, like chickpeas, lentils and soya. Drink 4-7 cups of green tea per day, avoid coffee. It provides the compound EGCG a strong polyphenol, which with other red grape polyphenols such as resveratrol and quercitin h
ave strong antioxidant and anti-cancer abilities. Green tea also contains Theanine, which can cross the blood/brain barrier and is known to reduce stress and increase glutamine/glutamate levels helping to re-oxygenate the body and cells. Choline, another B
vitamin,  also crosses the blood/brain barrier, helps de-fat the liver and body, and is essential for correct cellular membrane function. Research has shown only 2 per cent of postmenopausal women consume the recommended daily intake.
Oestradiol and causi
ng cellular havoc
(2) Oestrogen is not a single chemical, but a ´family´ of chemicals. There are many oestrogens all of which can bind to the receptor sites on the walls of healthy cells. The most dangerous, oestradiol, then creates havoc inside the cell s
etting up and driving some cancers. Other human forms like oestrone are far less dangerous. Plant oestrogens (phytoestrogens) are far, far weaker still and can block the receptor sites from attack by oestradiol.
So
your diet can help or hinder: Animal and saturated fats can increase aggressive oestrogen production and so drive your cancer, whereas a diet high in phytoestrogens (plants, greens, pulses) can help block the receptor sites. Research shows indole 3 carbino
l (from cruciferous vegetables including broccoli) and its metabolite DIM can both denature and convert oestradiol into its safer sister oestrone and even alter cell receptor sites to prevent this oestrogen-binding, while certain medicinal mushrooms, flaxs
eed/linseed/flax oil and other foods can actually cut oestrogen production.
Which would you rather do?
5 Common salt can cause the same oestrogen effects in the cell
A diet high in sodium salt, but low in magnesium and potassium can poison your cells and t
heir power stations and generate the same havoc effects as oestradiol. You need a low salt, high potassium and magnesium diet to counter this effect. The EPIC study has shown that higher magnesium intake means less cancer. The WHO has stated that cutting s
alt consumption means less cancer. Common table salt and also about 95 per cent of ´Sea Salt´ is just refined sodium chloride – avoid at all costs and if you have to use salt use unrefined Dead Sea Salt or Himalayan Salt. Avoid all processed, canned and pa
ckaged foods, dried meats, sausages, and Chinese food (MSG is high sodium).
Why would you want a salty diet if you have cancer?
6 Your immune system can kick out a cancer
Scientists are looking at a whole range of immune boosting drugs and treatments like
Interleukin or Interferon and dendritic cell vaccines to help boost your immune system to fight off the cancer. But we know that a high glucose diet depresses the immune system, and one high in animal fats can block liver and lymph systems also depressing
your immune response. Conversely a number of natural compounds including grape seed extract, pine bark extract, vitamin E and curcumin, plus herbs such as astragalus, cat´s claw and echinacea can equally boost your white immune cell levels. Recent researc
h shows that this is still not enough without the presence of vitamin D to activate the immune attacker T-cells, and vitamin K (from ´greens´) to enhance the uptake.
So, do you want to flatten your immune system, or boost it?
7 Chemotherapy is changing
Che
motherapy drugs over the last fifty years are like unguided missiles
The new breed of drugs (Biologics, monoclonal antibodies, hormone treatments like Tamoxifen) are problem-specific, tackling problems such as missing proteins or reducing oestrogen levels
, or growth hormone effects. They make ordinary chemotherapy drugs look like unguided missiles. Research is quite clear that these new drugs can be helped in their tasks by certain natural compounds, antioxidants, herbs and a tailored diet. MD Anderson has
shown that vitamin E and vitamin C can help bladder cancer drugs; vitamin E can help tamoxifen´s action (you need less of the drug); whereas eating grapefruit can counter certain cancer drugs and should be avoided. What you eat can make a big difference t
o your survival as the NCI researchers in Bethesda found. A junk diet of sugar and saturated fats will only give you a junk body and encourage the regrowth of cancer.
Do you really want to have a junk body when you are fighting to beat cancer?
8 Our knowle
dge is increasing
We also know that there are many unique factors to a cancer cell. For example it has more receptor sites than a normal cell for vitamin D. And since 2010 major research studies have shown that vitamin D seems capable of normalising/correc
ting and even killing a cancer cell. Vitamin D, which works more like a hormone than a vitamin, may eventually be available in a concentrated form as a drug, but why wait? You can join the sun worshipers for 45 minutes a day, or supplement. Vitamin K has b
een found now in several research studies to help vitamin D´s action. You can get your vitamin K from one good helping of greens per day but only if you have good beneficial bacteria levels in your gut (see below). These good bacteria are essential to your
good health; they love whole grains, whole foods and natural fibre, they hate salt, alcohol, antibiotics, chlorine and especially junk foods like cheeseburgers, refined grains and glucose (which feed their enemies)!
9 You must have a good level of benefi
cial bacteria in your gut
There are 800 strains of bacteria in your gut; about 400 have been identified and a dozen or so keep coming up in research as being absolutely essential to your good health. American experts have named these ´helpers´ your ´Microb
iome´. There are over 5,000 research studies and more than 80 Clinical Trials on Beneficial Bacteria in the last 5 or so years.
All the bacteria in your gut are, in fact, essential to your health, driving your immune response, cutting up your foods and rel
easing their goodness, vitamins and short chain esters, and even an anti-cancer chemical, sodium butyrate. But only if you feed them properly.
When you have orthodox medicine, the drugs and antibiotics can severely damage them. Your body becomes acidic cre
ating an environment in which they work less well. You can try to restore their levels by taking multi-strain probiotics, but if you want to try to keep levels high, junk foods containing sugars, refined carbohydrates, saturated fats and salt are no-go are
as. They feed the microbes and the yeasts in your gut – the enemies of the good guys. Conversely, whole foods and fibre allows them to thrive and multiply. All the latest American research is clear: ´Healthy microbiome, healthy you´.
10 Different folks, di
fferent strokes
When we covered research on common sugar in Cancer Watch we received several letters from irate nurses saying, basically, that we were talking rubbish because sugar is good for you.
Let´s get a few facts straight. Firstly, it´s not our rese
arch. We just tell you what Harvard, UCLA, MD Anderson, whoever, have found in THEIR research and clinical trials. Go argue with them! If they repeatedly say that people with the highest levels of common sugar in their blood streams survive less, then that
´s good enough for us!
Cheeseburgers; milky/sugary tea; sticky buns; milk shakes??!! It´s a junk diet.
The World Health Organisation is quite clear that up to 70 per cent of all cancers can be attributed to poor diet and are preventable. If you had breast
cancer in one breast and are now taking drugs, surely part of what you are doing is trying to PREVENT this cancer reappearing elsewhere?
Consuming milk shakes, cheeseburgers, milky/sugary tea, ice cream, supposedly ´healthy´ drinks like Ribena and Lucozad
e, sticky buns, chocolate and cake?
You
are pouring petrol on the fire!!!
This is not a diet for chemotherapy it is positively dangerous. A good diet should prevent cachexia AND help fight the cancer. We are not alone in this view. Several major hospitals
in the USA now talk about using a
nourishing and nutritious diet
with adequate minerals and vitamins a rainbow of colours and whole foods.
A real ´Diet for Chemotherapy´
So let us try to summarise a plan, based on real science, to give patients a strong ro
ute forward.
1. Clean Your Liver
Your liver is full of fats, dead cells, and overworked from the drugs and lact
ic acid. The cholesterol wraps around bits of dead cells and forms gallstones, as fine as particles of sand. This will cause bile blockages, blocking the liver´s ability to remove the rubbish from your body, and cause a backlog throughout your whole immune
system.
One starting point can be the use of a Liver Flush involving Epsom Salts and olive oil consumed with a fruit juice to take the taste away. The details are elsewhere on this web site. Coffee enemas can also help the liver pass more toxins into the
intestine by dilating/expanding the bile ducts.
Milk thistle has recently been shown in clinical trials to reduce side effects in chemotherapy patients and it is known to strengthen the liver. Mistletoe (injections have to be prescribed) also does both job
s. Boldo tea and dandelion amongst others will strengthen your liver and bile production. Magnesium is essential to the liver too, and choline and inositol (B vitamins, for example in soya lecithin) will help reduce fat levels. You could also add turmeric
to some meals or take curcumin and drink at least two litres of clean water a day.
2. Prepare Yourself
a)
Boost your immune system:
Oncologists will often tell patients that they don´t want them taking
supplements like antioxidants because they might interfere with their drugs – ´old fashioned´ chemo throws free radicals at cancer cells and they fear antioxidants might stop this. For me, antioxidants (especially the synthetic and deficient copies so pre
valent in high street shops) are not the best way anyway, of boosting an immune system. In US research (the VITAL study) grape seed extract was the clear winner in boosting the immune system. Herbs such as astragalus, cats claw, and echinacea seem particul
arly effective, as do curcumin/turmeric, natural vitamin E and the natural food chlorella (for complete beta-carotene, B-12 etc) contains much of the nourishment you will need. Certain ´medicinal mushrooms´ are also effective and the product MGN-3 (Biobran
) has excellent research results behind it.
b) Cut sodium from your diet, boost potassium and magnesium:
Increase potassium and magnesium-rich foods. Sodium poisons your cells and displaces potassium in the power stations of your cells, making them more to
xic and more acidic. Cancer thrives in acid bodies. Cut sodium foods like salt, soy sauce, gravy granules, hams, cooked meats, salami, turkey roast slices, sliced bread, breakfast cereals, sausages, bacon, processed food, prepared meals and Chinese meals.
Consume high potassium and magnesium foods like fresh nuts, jacket potatoes, whole grains, green leafy vegetables, carrots, fresh apples, bananas, whole brown rice, broad beans, peas and pulses. A little rice milk or soya milk is acceptable.
You may wish t
o read our article on the website entitled ´Acid Bodies and cancer´. Your aim, is to have a slightly alkaline one! So cut out smoking, alcohol, coffee, fats, sugar, salt, cows´ dairy (like milk and cheese. Yes, and the healthy yoghurt and probiotic drink),
chocolate, refined carbohydrates (white bread, pasta, rice) i.e. pretty well everything in the NHS A Diet for chemotherapy (or was that cachexia?) booklet. American research shows that alkalising the body stops new metastases, and the researchers (who are
about to undertake clinical trials) used a sodium bicarbonate in water solution as a drink.
c)
Increase your good fat levels:
We have known since 1982, and a Nobel Prize by Sir John Vane, about the positive benefits of omega 3 in the cancer process. Fish
oils provide the long-chain version, which helps to reduce cellular inflammation. Short-chain omega 3 can be found in flaxseed. In Dr Joanna Budwig´s anti-cancer diet, she used it with quark to improve cellular oxygen levels; and flaxseed helps reduce oest
rogen levels. Cold pressed olive oil has major benefits in the intestine and can displace bad fats in the body. Eating a high fibre diet can reduce levels of circulating bad fats in the body, as can fruits like tomatoes (lycopene). On no account eat trans
fats; and minimise saturated fat consumption. Good fat consumption at the expense of carbohydrates is a part of the Ketogenic Diet.
If you do consider fasting as a three or five day programme, please follow the thought of top American Hospitals that you sh
ould nourish your body. Even the NCI researchers above talked of eight or so bioactive compounds like curcumin, that you could derive from supplements.

d) Aim off for oestrogen:
 It is not just breast
cancer that can be driven by oestrogen. There is clear research evidence that some womb, ovarian, colon, melanoma, brain tumours and prostate cancers are driven by this female sex hormone.
If your cancer is linked to higher oestrogen levels women should av
oid the pill and HRT, men and women should avoid recycled water, fatty foods and eating one or two big meals a day. Graze – eat five or six smaller meals a day. Big starchy or carbohydrate-rich meals stimulate insulin production and this has a knock-on eff
ect to increase oestrogen production. Being overweight will mean greater fat stores and fat is the precursor for oestrogen production.
Oestrogen mimics (xenoestrogens) should be minimised too. These ´chemicals of concern´ feature in the 2013 World Health O
rganisation report on the urgent need to cut such ´gender-benders´ from everyday environmental chemicals. They invade our bodies in perfumed products, nail polishes (toluene), cosmetics and toiletries and via volatile organic carbon gases from glues, dyes,
dry cleaning, bleaches and disinfectants; plus they are formed from chemicals in certain pesticides, white can linings (BPA) and plastic packaging (BPA and phthalates) and some common preservatives (for example, parabens).
So consider going toxin-free at
home in the products you use; eat less pesticides; eat more greens, particularly cabbage and broccoli, and pulses. Research shows selenium and indole 3 carbinol can prevent their action.
Sleep in a fully darkened room as this will increase your melatonin p
roduction (it balances both IGF-1 and oestrogen excesses). Or you can supplement. (We have a book Oestrogen, the killer in our midst that tells you more
click here
to rea
d about it.)
e)
Consider the latest research.
Read Cancer Watch regularly! Read the articles on Beneficial Bacteria, reducing excess yeasts in your body, taking vitamin D, medicinal mushrooms and so on (see the end of the article for all links)
3. Eat to
Beat Cancer
In Chris Woollams´ book for CANCERactive,
The Rainbow Diet and how it can help you beat cancer,
he tells you what foods have been shown in research to be Protective and Corrective. The fact is the pigment in many foods is the bioactive natural
compound that has strong anti-cancer properties. Across the week you should eat a rainbow of colours: So base your diet around foods like –
Fresh garlic, leeks, onions, spring onions, radishes
– for example, garlic is known to contain a number of anti-canc
er agents and is believed to help stop cancer spreading and blood supplies forming to new tumours.
Pulses –
for thousands of years we have eaten broad beans, peas
and pulses providing phytoestrogens (plant oestrogens that are far, far weaker than human oestrogens) to protect us especially against the spread of hormonally driven cancers.
Glycoproteins and polysaccharides –
Four Nobel Prizes for medicine in the last
dozen years have been won for discoveries on these natural compounds which help cells communicate -good for your immune system´s ability to see friends and foes. Foods include aloe vera, echinacea, turmeric, pectins (e.g. apples and pears), arabinogalactan
s (e.g. in oats, psyllium, coconut, tomatoes, carrots, brown rice). Even red wine and mother´s milk contain these important protective factors that encourage better messaging between cells. In the US they are now called “Super carbs” or monosaccharides but
are actually neither. Probably the best studied are Medicinal Mushrooms like Reishi, Maitake, Cordyceps which are beta-glucan polysaccharides. (see below).
Dark Red foods –
like beetroot, dark plums, aubergines, red grapes, blueberries etc which provide a
nthocyanins, known to kill cancer cells, and/or polyphenols such as resveratrol and quercitin which both have anti-cancer effects.
Bright colours –
for example, red and yellow peppers, peaches, apricots, watermelon, for carotenoids, known to restrict cance
rs like breast cancer.
Greens –
Kale, spinach, broccoli, cabbage for vitamin K, phytoestrogens and indole 3 carbinol.
Sprouting seeds –
for sulphoraphanes, which have strong anti-cancer activity.
Nuts and seeds
try a breakfast of a little organic muesli, b
oosted by organic pumpkin and sunflower seeds and crushed flaxseed/linseeds. Great for B vitamins like folic acid and biotin to help protect DNA, cellular oxygenation and detoxifying lignans.
Bitter foods –
like watercress, gooseberries, cranberries, black
berries, wild strawberries. Or almonds, cashew nuts, millet, buckwheat and apricot kernels all of which contain fibre and a variety of natural compounds (yes, including B-17, which people like Dr Contreras at the Oasis of Hope calls ´nature´s chemotherapy´
).
Notable additions –
Green tea, olive oil, fennel, oregano, turmeric/curcumin to boost your immune system and kill yeasts.
Switch out of cows´ dairy
– to a little goats´ cheese, soya and rice milk. Swap red meat for game and oily fish (although research
shows eating oily fish comes second to taking a supplement of fish oils everyday).
Eat more mushrooms, apples, organic brown rice, Manuka Honey (grade 12) and onions. We could
go on. There is research on everything from the benefits of quercitin against cancer to the ability of medicinal mushrooms to cut oestrogen and boost the immune system. It is all in The Rainbow Diet and how it can help you beat cancer. Importantly, avoid
fried food or burning on the grill and eat more raw foods. Avoid beers and spirits, although the occasional red wine seems (from research, you understand!) to help.

4. Diet alone won´t suffice!
Your cancer is as individual as you are, so your treatment package needs to be tailored specifically to you and your cancer. At least half of all cancers are caused by poor lifestyle. Oth
er cancers may be caused by environmental toxins or parasites. Cancer can take six or more years to develop.
So please understand that trying to find the possible cause is crucial. You can take anti-parasite purges and you can eat foods to remove harmful c
hemicals from your body.

Control Nausea. Eating cool foods instead of warm foods, chewing on crystallized ginger, or sipping on peppermint or ginger tea can help discourage nausea. It’s also best to avoid greasy or fried foods and foods with strong odors.

Eat Mini-Meals. Eating smaller sized meals tends to be tolerated better during the chemo process than larger, less frequent meals. Eating smaller, more frequent meals will help with nausea as well.

Avoid Alcohol. During chemotherapy, be kind to your liver because it is helping to metabolize all the potential toxins in your bloodstream.

  • Watch Supplements. Dietitians in top cancer treatment centers across the country suggest not taking dietary supplements during chemo. These include vitamins, minerals, herbals, and botanicals. There are potential drug-nutrient interactions that can interfere with the effectiveness of chemotherapy. Talk to your doctor about taking any supplements when you are undergoing chemo.
  • Limit Green Tea. Some physicians limit the amount of green and white tea consumed by patients who are undergoing chemo. Anselmo advises her patients to limit tea drinking to one or two mugs a day. Green and white teas are packed with antioxidant phytochemicals and may interfere with the desired effect of chemo.
