Premises to why we contract disease, namely cancer:
1. One of the primary causes of disease is a compromised immune system - whether due to:
a). Physical imbalance due to poor diet, lack of exercise and/or a toxic environment,
b.) Emotional imbalance due to stress, anger, resentment, fear, depression, etc.,
c.) Mental imbalance due to lack of consciousness and awareness and subsequently poor lifestyle choices,
d.) Spiritual imbalance due to a need to address soul issues and experience a spiritually awakened life.
2. If one could understand the source and the cause of one's pain or disease, it makes sense that one would be able to better address one’s pain or disease. This is based on the wisdom that pain is life's messenger to awaken oneself to its source and to a “healing path”, to positive action with one's lifestyle choices.
Otherwise, one is likely to be prone to not take responsibility for one’s life, to being a "victim", to turning over one's power to others.
3. Cancer is a local manifestation of a systemic disease, and one must change the factors that caused it. If the underlying cause of pain and disease such as cancer is not addressed, then pain and disease could perpetuate, regardless of treatments provided.
4. We all have cancer cells in our bodies. Whether or not our bodies rid them depends on the strength of our immune systems. Healthy cells give up attacking cancer cells, and cancer cells invade healthy cells when our immune systems are compromised. The primary task in healing oneself therefore is the building and strengthening of our immune systems! Healthy bodies discharge. Unhealthy bodies accumulate toxins and get sick.
5. Our bodies are naturally self-rejuvenating, depending upon what we put into our bodies. We actually don’t contract disease. We allow disease to develop due to our lifestyle choices, particularly diet, which affects the blood terrain and the level of toxicity and dehydration in our bodies. Cancer is actually a deficiency disease caused by malnutrition, dehydration and stress, and can be prevented or reversed through a change in our diets and lifestyle. Our bodies need everything we can give it naturally and nutritionally to detoxify, cleanse and heal itself to a state of homeostasis.
6. It has been proven that cancer cells cannot live in an alkaline, oxygenated environment, and that on the other hand cancer cells thrive in an acidic environment. Whether the environment of our bodies is alkaline or acidic is a direct result of our diets. For information on alkaline and acidic foods, see the following. Note that an excess of sugar, fat and protein suppresses the immune system.
7. Removal of unhealthy cells (i.e., through chemotherapy, radiation and surgical removal of vital organs) may or may not contribute to the prospects of wellness, but needs to be weighed with the risk of destroying healthy cells and adversely affecting the immune system - the very system needed to be well -, in effect causing the cancer or the spreading of cancer. Again, if the underlying cause of disease is not addressed, namely a compromised immune system to begin with, then any aggressive medical procedures can be ineffectual.
8. Anything that compromises the immune system diminishes one’s ability to heal oneself. One must have or develop a strong immune system to heal.
9. There is compelling evidence that one’s mental, emotional and spiritual states affect one’s physical state.
10. CONCLUSION: A holistic approach to wellness is imperative.
In light of these premises, the following is a list of resources that:
- Support these premises
- Provide methods to enhance one’s immune system and create an alkaline, oxygenated environment.
- Provide information and testimonials on alternative therapies, including therapies that are combined with traditional approaches, with proven results.
It is with great hope that this information can help to restore one’s health and save lives! Make a difference and pass it on! If you have more to contribute, please contact me. Thank you!

SOME HEALTH RESOURCES
For Those With Cancer
HEALING RECIPES AND DIETS
1. Cancer cannot survive in an Alkaline High pH body. For that matter, every one needs to maintain a high ph level to keep cancer and tumors away. Many of the foods we eat and beverages we drink are acidic. A list of alkaline vs. acidic foods can be found on the following link: http://www.WakeupGetHealthy.com, and in the following book: The Acid Alkaline Food Guide, by Susan Brown and Larry Trivieri. The following further addresses alkaline vs. acidic food and beverages.
2. The standard water we drink is problematic. Tap water meets EPA ph standards for alkalinity, but is chemically treated with chlorine, fluoride and other chemicals. “Reverse Osmosis Purified” water is stripped of minerals, is acidic, is dehydrating, leaches vital minerals from our bodies, and should not be consumed. Bottled water does not meet “oxidation reduction potential” (ORP) standards, which quantifies the amount of energy in the water.
What to do: Either drill an artesian well one hundred feet into the ground, go to Lords, France, Cali, Mexico, New Dehli, India or Mt. Fiji, Japan for high quality alkaline water, or purchase a Kangen Water electrolysis machine, manufactured in Japan, which, through a process of ionization, separates acidic minerals from alkaline minerals, providing healing, regenerative, detoxifying, ionized, electron-rich, anti-oxidized, actively hydrated water!
Kangen means "return to origin" in Japanese. When applied to water, it refers to returning water to its natural state before it became polluted. It also refers to returning your body back to its original condition of health. The water is produced by a revolutionary Japanese water electrolysis technology that turns your acidic, contaminated, chlorinated tap water into healthier alkaline water with many benefits:
* Significantly slows down the Aging process
* Promotes healthy Weight loss
* Boosts the body's Immunity against disease
* Increases Absorption of important vitamins and minerals
* Turns ON the body's Natural healing ability
* Improves Circulation and digestion
* Raises Energy level and Stamina
This water antioxidizes, alkalizes, detoxifies and superhydrates the body. The Kangen machine creates water that has molecular microclusters that are more absorbable, that neutralize free radicals, that decrease acidity, leading to weight loss, that alkalinize the inner terrain of the body, restoring optimum function of the organs and the body’s natural healing ability.
Kangen water has been used in Japanese Hospitals for several decades and is designated as a certified medical device by the Japanese Ministry of Health. It is not just a home appliance! Now it is available in the U.S. in a home sized machine, so you do not have to be in a hospital to get the benefits of drinking this amazing water.
For more details, go to the web site www.kangen-water.biz. To purchase a machine, Margaret could put you in touch with a resource that could provide an affordable payment plan. Call Margaret at (617) 244-1966.

3. Here is a recipe for an "optimally nutritious", "easily digestible" and delicious soup from the Hippocrates Center (<www.hippocratesinst.org>), which had invested a lot of time putting this recipe together for optimal results.
Put in a juicer:
3 cups of equal amounts of cucumber, celery, sunflower greens, and pea sprouts.
Put in a separate special juicer 1 - 2 ounces of wheat grass (so you don't de-oxidize it).
Combine the two juices.
Add one cup of chopped celery and chopped cucumber, 1/4 cup of chopped onion, 1/2 an avocado, 2 cups of any fresh herbs (i.e., oregano, dill, parsley, basil, etc.), 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon, kelp powder to taste, garlic to taste and ginger to taste, braggsaminous (an amino acid) to taste, and some Dulse and Nori to taste.
Put in a blender and serve at room temperature.
Note: Sunflower greens are available in pouches and wheat grass in pouches or trays, and can usually be found in health food stores. If not found, you could contact: Randy Jacobs of Life Force Growers at <firstname.lastname@example.org>. Randy lives in Waltham, MA and sells both. Randy could also be an invaluable resource as he has several clients, many of whom are dealing with cancer, and could likely share testimonials. Another contact is: http://www.sproutman.com.
Notes about wheat grass: It has been proven by a Nobel Prize winner, Otto Warburg, that cancer cells cannot live in an oxygenated environment. Wheat grass oxygenates the blood.
According to the scientist, Chou En Lai, wheat grass in test tubes kills cancer.
4. Practitioner from The Gerson Institute suggests the following do's, (some of which can be found on the web site: <www.gerson.com> under "Gerson Therapy" and scroll down some), and don'ts
Oatmeal (watered down so that it is gruel)
Lots of potassium, i.e. potatoes
Simple fruits and vegetables
Flax seed oil
Coq10 - 50 - 60 mlgms 3 x per day, which puts oxygen in the liver
Wobenzym, which are enzymes to help break down tumors. Take 3 tablets 3 x per day and 3 tablets at bedtime. Enzymes should be taken before each meal.
Soup: Potatoes, onions, leaks, tomatoes, celery, garlic, parsley. Bring to a boil. Simmer for two hours in order to make it digestible.
The worst foods are fat, refined salt and animal protein. The only acceptable fat is flax seed oil.
Cancer cells are swollen with sodium.
Avocado even has too much fat, according to a Gerson practitioner. Although the soup from Hippocrates includes it for essential oils.
5. Do’s and Don’ts for every day health from a Macrobiotic perspective:

Omega-3 fatty acid (omega-3 FA) consumption has long been associated with a lower incidence of colon, breast and prostate cancers in many human populations. Human trials have demonstrated omega-3 FA to have profound anti-inflammatory effects in those with cancer. In vitro and small animal studies have yielded a strong body of evidence establishing omega-3 FA as having anti-inflammatory, anti-apoptotic, anti-proliferative and anti-angiogenic effects. This review explores the evidence and the mechanisms by which omega-3 FA may act as angiogenesis inhibitors and identifies opportunities for original research trialling omega-3 FAs as anti-cancer agents in humans. The conclusions drawn from this review suggest that omega-3 FAs in particular eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) found principally in oily fish have potent anti-angiogenic effects inhibiting production of many important angiogenic mediators namely; Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF), Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF), Platelet-Derived Endothelial Cell Growth Factor (PDECGF), cyclo-oxygenase 2 (COX-2), prostaglandin-E2 (PGE2), nitric oxide, Nuclear Factor Kappa Beta (NFKB), matrix
metalloproteinases and beta-catenin. PMID: 19493674 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher

Ruhul Amin ARM et al. – This review discusses the promising natural chemopreventive compounds, their molecular targets, and their mechanisms.
Why natural compounds?
Because an ideal chemopreventive agent should be nontoxic, effective at lower doses, economical, and easily available.
* Chemopreventive properties of selected promising natural compounds:
* Tea polyphenols: Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) found in tea, the most abundant polyphenol has anticarcinogenic activity.
* Curcumin: Curcumin, isolated from the roots (rhizomes) of the plant Curcuma longa, the major yellow pigment is known for its antitumorigenic activity.
* Resveratrol: Resveratrol is a phytoalexin, a major constituent of red wine, and abundant in the grape skin.
* Lycopene: A natural antioxidant that imparts red color to tomatoes, guava, rosehip, watermelon, and pink grapefruit is known for its strong antioxidant properties, and has drawn much attention as a cancer preventing agent.
* Pomegranate: A number of in vitro and in vivo studies suggest that pomegranate has strong potential for prostate cancer chemoprevention.
* Luteolin: A flavonoid abundant in several green vegetables, such as broccoli, celery, cabbage, spinach, green pepper, and cauliflower, exhibits a wide array of pharmacologic properties ranging from anti-inflammation to anticancer effects.
* Genistein: A phytoestrogen abundant in soybeans and soy products. An inverse correlation between dietary soy consumption and the risk of prostate, breast, and endometrial cancer is established.
* Molecular targets for natural chemopreventive agents:
* p53 family members
* Nuclear Factor-Kappa B
* Activator Protein a (AP-1)
* Signal Transducers and Activators of Transcription Pathway (STAT)
* Growth factors and their receptors
* Host factors/Immunoprevention
Red meat linked to breast cancer
April 4, 2007 - British Journal of Cancer
Eating even small amounts of red meat can greatly increase a woman's risk of breast cancer, according to a study published today... The study, led by Professor Janet Cade of the University of Leeds, involved studying the diets of 35,000 women aged between 35 and 69 for eight years.
The research states: "Women, both pre and post-menopausal, who consumed the most meat had the highest risk of breast cancer... "Women generally consuming most total meat, red and processed meat were at the highest increased risk compared with non-meat consumers."
"The findings are robust. Whatever we adjusted the data for we could find an association." Read more:
Milk and Prostate Cancer: New Evidence
April 5, 2007 - International Journal of Cancer
A new study in the Int J Cancer highlights the link between dairy consumption and prostate cancer. Researchers examined dairy and calcium intake in 29,133 men. As consumption of dairy products or overall dietary calcium intake increased, risk for prostate cancer increased. Men who consumed the most dietary calcium (greater than 2,000 mg per day) had a 63 percent greater risk, compared with those getting less than 1,000 mg per day.
Excess dietary calcium inhibits activation of vitamin D in the body; vitamin D is essential for prostate health. Milk's large calcium load tends to block vitamin D activation in the body.
PRODUCT PLUNDER OF THE WEEK:
CANCER-CAUSING BENZENE IN SODA DRINKS
The problem of cancer causing benzene turning up in sodas seems to pop up in the U.S. with alarming regularity. Last week, the FDA reported that it tested 100 sodas and found unacceptable levels of the known carcinogen in five of the drinks. Some of these drinks had benzene levels nearly 100 times that which is considered safe by the EPA for drinking water. The toxin is formed when a soda manufacturer uses two ingredients that can react to form benzene: ascorbic acid and sodium benzoate or potassium benzoate. Soda companies found to have dangerous levels of benzene have vowed to reformulate their drinks. In the meantime, boycott the following beverages and consider avoiding any soda with the "toxic two" ingredients, found in an astoundingly high number of popular drinks. (As a note, beverages labeled as "organic" cannot contain these ingredients.)
Sodas Found to Contain Carcinogenic Benzene:
* Safeway Select Diet Orange
* AquaCal Strawberry Flavored Water Beverage
* Crystal Light Sunrise Classic Orange
* Giant Light Cranberry Juice Cocktail
* Crush Pineapple

Parabens and Breast Cancer
Parabens are synthetic chemicals used as a preservative to inhibit the growth of bacteria, yeasts, and molds. Parabens are known to disrupt endocrine (hormone) function. More than 12 research studies (1) show parabens to have estrogenic activity in animals and in tissue culture. Recent research detected five types of intact parabens in human breast tumors (2). Although not a conclusive link between exposure to parabens and breast cancer, this new research signals the need for a precautionary approach to the manufacture and use of these compounds.
The international research community is beginning to question the safety of parabens in consumer products, based on new evidence of their endocrine disrupting effects. These ubiquitous chemicals are used as preservatives in a host of consumer products: food, pharmaceuticals and personal care products, including shampoos and conditioners, sunscreens, and deodorants. Since 2000, 13 research studies have shown that various types of parabens (methyl, ethyl, propyl, benzyol and benzyl) act like estrogen in animals and in tissue culture. However, the estrogenic activity occurs only when parabens are applied to the skin, not when ingested.
The estrogen/breast cancer connection is indisputable, which raises concerns about chemicals such as parabens that behave like estrogen….
Daily use of personal care products – especially deodorants and anti-perspirants -- can result in direct, chronic exposure to parabens.

Fluoride and chlorine are major carcinogens, and are in our water supply. Check out: <www.fluoridealert.org>.
According to the U.S. Council of Environmental Quality‚ "Cancer risk among people drinking chlorinated water is as much as 93% higher than among those whose water does not contain chlorine."
There is a lot of well-founded concern about chlorine. When chlorine is added to our water‚ it combines with other natural compounds to form Trihalomethanes (chlorination byproducts)‚ or THMs. These chlorine by-products trigger the production of free radicals in the body‚ causing cell damage‚ and are highly carcinogenic. Chlorine is also suspected to contribute to hardening of the arteries‚ the primary cause of heart disease.
"We are learning the hard way that all the time we thought we were preventing epidemics of one disease‚ we were creating another. Two decades after the start of chlorinating our drinking water the present epidemic of heart trouble and cancer began."
- Dr. Joseph M. Price‚ PhD
Heavy toxic metals, gases, and chemicals such as mercury, aluminum, lead, dioxin, fluoride and chlorine are prevalent throughout our environment, and should be avoided. Check out Sherry Rogers’ books, Tired or Toxic and Detoxify or Die.

4. Ireland Cancer Center, University Hospitals Health System, Cleveland, Ohio
This Comprehensive Cancer Center has been designated by the National Cancer Institute for having high standards in research and clinical care. In looking into their clinical trials, there were several that have worked well for patients with ovarian cancer. To be eligible for any clinical trial the patient must be able to care for themselves independently at least 70% of the time.
There are three (3) phases of trials:
Phase I- For patients who have had chemo and/or radiation several times, this is the least successful of the Trials.
Phase II- Some patients have responded positively to treatment, but patient should have had not more than 1 chemo/radiation treatment to be effective.
Phase III- This is the most promising Phase for treatment. This is for patients who haven’t had chemo or radiation yet.
5. Kushi Institute: (http://www.kushiinstitute.org/) Offers programs to help people make the supportive dietary lifestyle changes that can provide the greatest positive impact on one’s life through the natural, macrobiotic approach to health, healing and well-being.
6. The Burzynski Clinic: http://www.burzynskiclinic.com
The article by Dr. Mercola on Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski's work and film is important to consider. Burzynski, the Movie, is the story of a medical doctor and Ph.D biochemist. Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski "won the largest, and possibly the most convoluted and intriguing legal battle against the Food and Drug Administration in American history." "In the 1970's, Dr. Burzynski made a remarkable discovery that threatened to change the face of cancer treatment forever. His non-toxic gene-targeted cancer medicine could have helped save millions of lives over the last two decades had his discovery not been criminally suppressed by the US government, as his therapy, called ‘antineoplastons’, has been shown to effectively help cure some of the most "incurable" forms of terminal cancer.”
7. The Cancer Project: (http://www.cancerproject.org) - An independent, separately incorporated affiliate of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) http://www.pcrm.org, The Cancer Project advances cancer prevention and survival through nutrition education and research.
Diet and Cancer Research: What we eat and how we treat our bodies on a daily basis have a very powerful effect on our health and quality of life. Although cancer can affect many different parts of the body, the foods that prevent cancer and deter cancer growth are generally the same. Fruits, vegetables, grains, and legumes all have important nutrients and other cancer-fighting substances like phytochemicals and pectin that strengthen immune function and destroy cancer-causing substances before they cause harm. Research has shown that people who eat a diet free of animal products, high in plant foods, and low in fat have a much lower risk of developing cancer.
The Importance of Vegetables
Not only are vegetables low in fat and high in fiber, they also contain many cancer-fighting substances. Carotenoids, the pigment that gives fruits and vegetables their dark colors, have been shown to help prevent cancer. Beta-carotene, present in dark green and yellow vegetables, helps protect against lung cancer and may help prevent cancers of the bladder, mouth, larynx, esophagus, breast, and other sites.
Vegetables such as cabbage, broccoli, kale, turnips, cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts contain flavones and indoles which are thought to have anti-cancer activities.
Vitamin C, found in citrus fruits and many vegetables, may lower risks for cancers of the esophagus and stomach. Vitamin C acts as an antioxidant, neutralizing cancer-causing chemicals that form in the body. It also blocks the conversion of nitrates to cancer-causing nitrosamines in the stomach.
Selenium is found in whole grains and has the same antioxidant effects as vitamin C and beta-carotene. Vitamin E also has this effect. Caution is advised in supplementing selenium, which is toxic in large doses.
Vegetarians Are Better Off All the evidence points to a low-fat, high-fiber diet that includes a variety of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and beans, as being the best for cancer prevention. Not surprisingly, vegetarians, whose diets easily meet these requirements, are at the lowest risk for cancer. Vegetarians have about half the cancer risk of meat-eaters.11 Vegetarians have higher blood levels of beta-carotene. They consume more vitamin C, beta-carotene, indoles, and fiber than meat-eaters. Vegetarians also have stronger immune systems. German researchers recently discovered that vegetarians have more than twice the natural killer cell activity of meat-eaters.12 Natural killer cells are specialized white blood cells that attack and neutralize cancer cells. Also, vegetarians tend to eat more soy products than meat-eaters. Soybeans contain many substances that are anticarcinogens, including lignans and phytoestrogens. A diet that is rich in soybeans may be one reason for the lower incidence of breast cancer in Asia.

"It is the clearest, most powerful and compelling presentation in the Western World about the state of our health and food industries."
"What a 'Wake Up' call! This book/DVD set is much more than an informative diet for health conscious people. It is truly a compelling, insightful, common sense approach to addressing the maladies and ailments that so many people suffer from today. This honest look at the faults of the (historic...hysteric?) standard American diet will definitely get your attention. The "Eating" DVD is a powerful statement against the way that most of us think about the food we eat. How can a society be so dumb about what we are doing to our bodies? I exercise and try to watch my weight, but I have really been missing the "big picture". This program puts it into proper perspective. Check it out! The answer is simple and has been right in front of us forever--history and facts are difficult to ignore. I think this program takes up where Dean Ornish left off."

Natural Cures "They" Don't Want You To Know About, by Kevin Trudeau. “Kevin Trudeau blows the lid off a nest of deception and double standards concerning general and individual health…, has risked government prosecution to bring you the full story of an intricate conspiracy. From the retail supermarket outlets of huge, publicly traded corporations comes processed, manipulated, engineered "food products" – produced by other wings of the same corporation. These artificial, toxic treats are then sold with the blessings of the Federal Trade Commission and Food and Drug Administration – government organizations charged with safeguarding the public good – laying the foundations for future disease and chronic ill-health for the consumer, and a guaranteed source of revenue for the medical and pharmaceutical sectors. Kevin reveals the shocking truth of how drugs – which are being advertised directly to the consumer, pushing their use to an all-time high – are actually the cause of illness and disease climbing to near epidemic levels. And, though it sounds dire, Kevin offers a light in the darkness and directs the reader to scores and scores of alternative therapies, medical practices, philosophies and – most importantly – potential cures that help your body regain its natural state of health and vibrancy.”

2. Poly-MVA is a new, nontoxic, powerful antioxidant formula that protects both cell DNA and RNA. The use of this natural substance, which helps to “fix the cell” and control the cancer, rather than “fight the cancer” by poisoning the system, has clearly demonstrated safe antitumoral activity. Compared to chemotherapy, Poly-MVA offers an alternative, extremely powerful treatment. Poly-MVA is excellent in cases where no other remedies are possible. Poly-MVA has shown to be beneficial in cases of breast, prostate, colon, lung, stomach and brain cancer, and has also been used successfully in cases of psoriasis—a disease which often develops into cancer. COQ10 is a supplement that acts as a transfer agent, helping the poly-mva to get into other areas in the bloodstream. For more information, go to http://polymva.com/.

Drink hydrogen peroxide via holistic practitioner who will dilute it properly.
Ozone therapy with an ozone machine (via Ed McCabe in FL)
Get plenty of fresh air; Be in/move to the country
9. Sitting in an Infrared Sauna for 20 minutes two times per day, which penetrates three inches into the body, could help to detoxify and release cancer cells.
10. On a spiritual level, everything is possible.
Hope, belief and faith could make all the difference in optimizing the chances of one's survival when faced with a terminal disease. One's state of consciousness could keep one alive, while one rebuilds one's body and immune system.
Science actually explains miracle healings, including of those on their death beds.
To summarize, thoughts, which affect emotions create neoropeptides (the material manifestation of one's emotions via a chemical), which enter the receptors of the white blood cell, unlock the cell and send instructions into the cell. If the neoropeptide is one of depression and hopelessness, then the message that the white blood cell receives is to die, which affects the immune system. On the other hand, there are stories of those who have believed that they could get well, regardless of statistics, through the power of the mind, and did. In essence, matter is a form of energy, and since energy is conscious, as theorized by modern physics, it can be transformed through the power of the mind. Put another way, the state of our mind affects our physical health.
There is scientific evidence as to why this works as well as testimonials.
Best book on the topic: Psychic Discoveries Behind the Iron Curtain, by Sheila Ostrander and Lynn Schroeder.
At the same time, it is important to find peace about dying through knowing the reality of spirit.
Hope, faith...and peace are the states that could lead to healing, whether in this realm or the next.
Cancer Update from John Hopkins:
1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.
2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person's lifetime.
3. When the person's immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumours.
4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.
5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.
6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastro-intestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.
7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.
8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.
9. When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.
10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.
11. An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells by not feeding it with the foods it needs to multiply.
CANCER CELLS FEED ON:
a. Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells. Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal,Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses but only in very small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in colour. Better alternative is Bragg's aminos or sea salt.
b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soya milk cancer cells are being starved.
c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.
d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes to nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells. To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).
e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine. Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer-fighting properties. Water-best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.
12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines become putrified and leads to more toxic buildup.
13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body's killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.
14. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor-ssence,Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the body's own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body's normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.
15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor. Anger, unforgiveness and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.
16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.
CANCER UPDATE FROM JOHN HOPKINS HOSPITAL, U.S.
1. No plastic containers in micro.
2. No water bottles in freezer.
3. No plastic wrap in microwave.
Johns Hopkins has recently sent this out in its newsletters. This information is being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center as well.
Dioxin chemicals causes cancer, especially breast cancer.
Dioxins are highly poisonous to the cells of our bodies.
Don't freeze your plastic bottles with water in them as this releases dioxins from the plastic.
Recently, Dr. Edward Fujimoto, Wellness Program Manager at Castle Hospital, was on a TV program to explain this health hazard. He talked about dioxins and how bad they are for us. He said that we should not be heating our food in the microwave using plastic containers. This especially applies to foods that contain fat. He said that the combination of fat, high heat, and plastics releases dioxin into the food and ultimately into the cells of the body. Instead, he recommends using glass, such as Corning Ware, Pyrex or ceramic containers for heating food. You get the same results, only without the dioxin. So such things as TV dinners, instant ramen and soups, etc., should be removed from the container and heated in something else.
Paper isn't bad but you don't know what is in the paper. It's just safer to use tempered glass, Corning Ware, etc. He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food restaurants moved away from the foam containers to paper. The dioxin problem is one of the reasons.
Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as Saran, is just as dangerous when placed over foods to be cooked in the microwave. As the food is nuked, the high heat causes poisonous toxins to actually melt out of the plastic wrap and drip into the food. Cover food with a paper towel instead.
"The doctor of the future will give no medication, but will interest her or his patients in the care of the human frame, in a proper diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease."

"Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food." Hippocrates, (Father of medicine)
"Make food simple and let things taste of what they are." Curnonsky, (Was the most celebrated writer on gastronomy in France in the 20th century.)

Some Nutrition Facts
There is twice as much protein per calorie in broccolli then there is in red meat.
There is more useable calcium in green leafy vegetables then there is in cow's milk.
The flavonoid compounds found in spinach have anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory properties.
KEYS TO A HEALTHY IMMUNE SYSTEM – A HOLISTIC APPROACH
From Walene James’ Immunization, The Reality Behind The Myth
A. Keep the body alkaline by:
1. Eating plenty of fruits and vegetables. For most people, the proportion should be 80% alkaline-forming food to 20% acid-forming food. In general, fresh fruits and vegetables are alkaline forming, and starches and proteins are acid forming. The more physically active a person is, the more acid-forming food a person could handle.
2. Eating only whole, natural foods. As much as possible, eat food that is fresh, in season, organically and locally grown. Eat most food raw or slightly steamed with an emphasis on green leafy vegetables.
3. Chewing food well; saliva alkalinizes food.
4. Eating whole grains that have been germinated. Germination makes them more alkaline, easier to digest, and increases protein and enzyme content.
5. Keeping eliminative organs working well and periodically going on short cleansing regimes.
6. Getting adequate rest, exercise, pure water, and fresh air.
1. Refined sugar
2. Refined, chemicalized, stale and overcooked food.
3. Poisons such as drugs, vaccines, insecticides, Xrays, and radioactivity.
4. And, of course, coffee, tobacco, and alcohol.
C. Take supplements as needed. The following nutrients specifically support the immune system:
1. Vitamin C, A, E and the B complex.
2. Minerals zinc, calcium, magnesium, iodine, iron, and selenium.
3. Herbs such as garlic, alfalfa, Echinacea, yarrow, gingerroot, cayenne, and taheebo ( a remarkable herb from the bark of a South American tree, also known as pau d’arco).
4. Lemons, acidophilus culture (for colon).
