Tumors THRIVE off the body’s natural cancer-fighting proteins – causing disease to spread as cells are killed off

The body’s natural cancer-fighting proteins could be fueling the spread of cancer, scientists have discovered.

The body’s natural process that removes dead and dying cells actually fuels the spread of cancer to bones and other organs due to a pro-inflammatory protein that is released

A new study focused on prostate cancer to find that the body’s process for removing dead and dying cells causes those harmful cells to spread to bones and other organs by increasing inflammation.

The process’s negative effect in metastatic prostate cancer cells has been poorly understood, but now researchers have discovered a breakthrough by pinpointing the protein.

This understanding could help researchers develop drugs to block the harmful tumor growth in prostate and other cancers, while still allowing the body to clear out the dying cells. Continue reading

Can High Iron Increase Your Breast Cancer Risk?

In a recent blog, I spoke about mTOR pathways and their connection to cancer. According to Dr. Mercola’s latest book, Fat for Fuel, limiting protein intake is a natural way to down-regulate activity of mTOR pathways and thus lower your risk of tumor growth.

But keeping mTOR pathways at bay isn’t the only way that protein restriction can help you reverse cancer. Recent investigations have discovered the link between excess levels of iron caused by high protein consumption and other factors resulting in a higher risk for breast cancer.

Straddling Conventional and Alternative Cancer Treatment

When Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez died in July (of 2015), there was not much notice. He did not get an obituary in The New York Times or in most other major media outlets.

Yet Dr. Gonzalez, whom I interviewed in 2003, was a fascinating figure in the world of cancer, walking a tenuous boundary between orthodox oncology and alternative medicine — or what is now called complementary medicine. Though his beliefs and treatments have fierce critics, his insights shed light on the mysteries of cancer. Continue reading

Apple Seeds and Cancer

This is What the Government Has Been Hiding From Us for Years

You have probably heard the saying that one apple a day can keep the doctor away. This is certainly true because an apple is one of the healthiest and nutrition-dense fruits in the world. One apple provides an estimated 10 percent or more of the recommended daily amount of vitamin C and fiber. Moreover, these nutrients have anti-cancer properties, boost the immune system, aid in weight loss, and prevent free radical damage. Continue reading

11 Plants Native Americans Use to Cure Everything (From Joint Pain to Cancer)

The Cherokee is a Native American tribe that is indigenous to the Southeastern United States. They believe that the Creator has given them a gift of understanding and preserving medicinal herbs.The Cherokee trust the healing and preventative properties of nature’s pharmacy. Because many plants become scarce throughout history, the Cherokee promote proper gathering techniques. The old ones have taught them that if you are gathering, you should only pick every third plant you find. This ensures that enough specimens still remain and will continue to propagate. Here are some of the medicinal plants that were commonly used and foraged for by the Cherokee tribe. Continue reading

Surviving Cancer 16 years later…

everything new is well forgotten old

My husband is a sixteen-year cancer survivor. When he was diagnosed in 2001 there were no books, no seminars and very few options for Acinic cell cancer. The treatment proposed was very disfiguring with probable facial nerve damage; and the only two people the local surgeon had operated on were dead. Choosing a well known teaching hospital instead, we prepared for surgery number 2—to correct the misplaced surgical drain shooting saliva out of the back of his ear; and to remove the other half of the tumor we were told was left behind from surgery number 1.

Five cancer facts that Big Pharma is now aggressively claiming are myths

According to the conventional wisdom of mainstream medicine, the world’s leading health practitioners in alternative, complementary and integrative medicine have it all wrong and are misinforming millions in practice and on the internet with a barrage of myths and misconceptions they claim are causing more harm to cancer patients.

Could this initiative to sway opinion by leading cancer authorities possibly – just possibly – be related to the revolution that is happening around the world – highlighting the dangers and ineffectiveness of toxic chemotherapy and radiation, bringing cancer cures such as cannabis to the forefront, or the emerging mass markets now creating awareness on the reality of our food and the consequences of the cancer industry itself?

Beat cancer naturally rather than being a “customer” for the medical profession

In contrast to at least 6000 years of the practice of natural medicine, Western medicine treats the body as a collection of parts instead of as a synergistic organism. When it comes to treating broken bones and injured body parts, mainstream Western medicine is unequaled. When this same approach is used to treat illness and disease – fixing or repairing the parts where the symptoms of underlying illnesses manifest themselves, modern medicine fails miserably. Continue reading

Prostate cancer ELIMINATED by combination of powerful nutrients in apple peels, turmeric root and grape skins

A recent study published in Precision Oncology revealed that a potent combination of compounds from turmeric root, apple peels, and grapes help keep prostate cancer at bay. To carry out the study, a team of health experts at the University of Texas at Austin identified 142 natural compounds that may potentially fend off the disease. The research team then tested these compounds on mouse and human cell lines to identify which ones may mitigate the growth of prostate cancer cells when used either alone or in combination with other compounds.

Can PTSD Increase Your Breast Cancer Risk?

A few weeks ago I discussed the physical and mental benefits that go along with “turning on” the Relaxation Response and offered some tips on how to elicit this healing response within you. If you have not read that blog post yet, you can check it out HERE.

But what about when a person cannot get out of the cycle of stress for long enough to turn on the Relaxation Response, no matter how hard they try?

Ways of Life – Psalm 90:10

There are many ways of life found in the Bible. One of those ways of life is defined in Psalm 90:10. The writer of this Psalm is making the observation at his time that the average age was around 70 years. But if someone had strength, they made it another 10 years (decade).

Psalm 90:10 (KJV): “The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.” Continue reading

Science journal confirms eating turmeric cured myeloma cancer in 57-year-old woman

After undergoing three rounds of chemotherapy and four stem cell transplants and still finding herself sick and weak, blood cancer patient, Dieneke Ferguson, believed she reached the end of her tether. She was told she had exhausted all her options. “Nothing worked: there was just too much cancer….there was nothing else I could do,” she recalled in an interview with The Daily Mail. Ferguson, though, refused to accept the “inevitable and turned towards an alternative treatment: curcumin. The polyphenol, which is the main compound of turmeric, is what has been keeping her alive and well for the last five years, she says. Her extraordinary story will be featured in an upcoming study in the British Medical Journal. Continue reading

Managing Cancer as a Metabolic Disease

~ Foreword ~
What you are about to read is exciting to me – but it comes with a single drawback, one which I refer to as, “let us ignore all those who came before us…”. I began to work with Dr. William D. Kelley, D.D.S., M.S. in the late 1980’s. I was trained by him to administer teaching and guidance for cancer victims – and in fact worked with many of the afflicted from all over the world. Kelley is considered one of the modern day pioneers in this field and is recognized as such along with other names in the advancement of true cancer cure, Max Gerson, Otto Warburg, Nicholas Gonzalez (one of Kelley’s most significant students), Bryzinski, Hulda Clarke, Johanna Budwig, Royal Rife, Dr. Ryke Geerd Hamer (and others) – and one very dominant name – that of Dr. John Beard – from whose writings of the early 1900’s took Kelley down the path to further study and expand on the main topic of this posting – Metabolic Disease. If it were not for the work of Beard and subsequently Kelley with his significant advancement in this field – we would still be light years behind where we are today. It has just taken the modern “experts” to catch up with the work of these two pioneers – yet neither receives the credit where due.~ Jeffrey Bennett, Publisher

Metabolic therapy, which includes a ketogenic diet, has been shown to prevent and treat many cancers, including “incurable” late-stage cancers

Cancer has become Americans’ No. 1 health concern. It is easy to understand why. Fifty percent of men and 41 percent of women will develop cancer during their lifetimes. But what if you didn’t need to fear cancer because you knew it was a metabolic disease that you could treat and recover from like other conditions?

Did you know that according to the American Cancer Society over 1,600 people die every day from cancer in the U.S.? That’s over 600,000 people each year. And when you include the entire world population that number climbs tenfold to over 7.6 million. Think about it. What if that many people died each day from Zika, or Ebola or polio? Continue reading

A third of all cancers could be prevented with these plant-based nutrients

Each year, over 10 million people worldwide are diagnosed with cancer, one million of them are Americans. While there is a common misconception that whether or not you will get cancer is pretty much luck of the draw, in reality, only about 10 percent of cancers are attributable to genetic factors. As many as 90 percent of all cancers can be blamed squarely on lifestyle and environmental factors, and are entirely avoidable. And there is even more good news: An article in the journal Nature states that a third of all cancer deaths are totally preventable “through increased consumption of natural compounds” which prevent cell duplication and induce apoptosis (cancer cell suicide). Continue reading

Why An Alkaline Approach Can Successfully Treat Cancer

In the 1930’s, an interesting natural cancer treatment was proposed as a simple, effective answer to cancer – almost any cancer. This treatment approach is not well known because it is considered alternative or experimental – or even dangerous – by the medical and scientific community and hence has been referenced primarily in obscure publications outside the mainstream press.

Living in the Country Reduces Risk of Dying from Cancer by 29%

There’s something to be said for old-fashioned doctors

Living in a rural area has a multitude of benefits – cleaner air, less noise, and more relaxing surroundings, just to name a few. If you’re fighting cancer from a rural area of the country, your location may also boost your odds of survival quite significantly, research shows (though it may be because of the type of general practitioners (GPs) you’re more likely to find in the country).

She Turned 2 Simple Ingredients Into a Cure For Cancer…

Dr. Johanna Budwig was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Medicine six times, meaning that we should treat her work with respect. During her career (she died in 2003, at the age of 95), Dr. Budwig cured 90% of her cancer patients. She cured all types of cancer permanently by using non-toxic ingredients which don’t cause any side-effects. Due to her amazing success, Dr. Budwig became the greatest enemy to the pharmaceutical and nuclear industries. They have been suppressing her work ever since early 1950, which is the reason why most of us are not familiar with the Budwig Protocol. Continue reading

Spider peptides battle superbugs and cancer

Antibiotics are increasingly losing effectiveness against certain pathogens; now scientists have found a bacteria-killing spider peptide that could help remedy this trend.

As antibiotic resistance rises and fears over superbugs grow, scientists are looking for new treatment options. One area of focus is antimicrobial peptides (AMPs), which could someday be an alternative to currently prescribed antibiotics, many of which are becoming increasingly useless against some bacteria. Now, a team reports in ACS Chemical Biology that they have improved the antimicrobial — and anticancer — properties of an AMP from a spider. Continue reading

Life with Cancer and the Steadfast Courage in the Face of Death

When I was first diagnosed (Karen’s Journey) I couldn’t help myself but to feel afraid, somehow I felt shame for feeling this emotion because I thought as a believer of God I had to be strong in every area of my life despite the challenges I may face. After all the word of God says in His perfect love there is no fear. Could it be then that I really didn’t know of His love? Or perhaps, I’m a normal human being with normal emotions? God gave us emotions right? Let me tell you… Yes!! It is normal to feel afraid!! Now, the question is… what do we do in the midst of that emotion? Do we allow it to paralyze us or do we move from it? So many questions and yet, the bible, pastors, therapists, family, relatives, friends, colleagues, will have their own very unique answer to this complex question. Would they all coincide that Steadfast Courage is a must? Continue reading

Updated ~ Dr. V.: 7 ways that stress affects cancer growth

Stress is not a friend to any individual who is on a healing journey with breast cancer. I have written about the connection between, immune impairment and tumor growth on many occasions and so have hundreds of other experts during the last decade.

A study published in September 2015, however, presents a fascinating take on the subject. The joint team, which included both medical and psychological researchers from UCLA, the University of Texas, The University of Iowa and the United States National Cancer Institute, analyzed data which explains how the nervous system, and in particular the sympathetic nervous system (SNS), plays a major part in tumor metastasis when the body is under chronic stress.

The Signs & Symptoms of Pancreatic Cancer

Pancreatic cancer is the ninth most common cancer death in women and the fourth in terms of both men and women. According to recent research the five year survival rate for those diagnosed early is only 8% and this drops to 3% for those diagnosed at an advanced stage. This is mainly due to the fact that this type of cancer is extremely difficult to diagnose and is usually discovered when it’s advanced to an almost incurable stage.

So what is pancreatic cancer? Pancreatic cancer is a disease where the healthy cells within the pancreas stop working as they should, and begin to grow at an uncontrollable rate. As the cancerous cells begin to build up, they form tumors that can begin spreading to other parts of the body. When pancreatic tumors advance to a large enough size, they begin to impact the function of other organs. This can result in digestive problems as the stomach begins to produce too much acid, as well as issues with the liver and bile production. Continue reading

Prostate cancer breakthrough…

Combination of three plant-based nutrients found to MELT AWAY prostate cancer cells

A fascinating new study published in Precision Oncology has found that a combination of three plant-based nutrients “melts away” prostate cancer cells. The study, led by University of Texas researcher Stefano Tiziani, is entitled Combinatorial treatment with natural compounds in prostate cancer inhibits prostate tumor growth and leads to key modulations of cancer cell metabolism.

As described in the University of Texas newsletter, this breakthrough discovery allows people to “starve prostate cancer with what you eat for dinner.” Continue reading

Cancer and Emotions: Is There a Connection?

When I was first diagnosed I thought of why? why me? I went through an emotional roller coaster for sure but after a while of processing what was happening to me I knew I needed to go on a quest for answers. I didn’t know much about cancer then, I just knew that cancer was a deadly disease and I did not want it in my body.

I’m a strong believer of God, a higher power, a source of light that dwells in all of us and I believe this inner light led me to a path of discovery and learning. I truly believe this diagnoses gave me an invitation to live again I just didn’t see it right then. I know a cancer diagnoses can be a very scary thing to process and things can unfold quite rapidly from that moment on but in the midst of all that commotion I knew I needed to seek for answers. Why did I develop cancer? Was it bad luck? Was it my fault? Did I have any responsibility? Well all these questions came back with shocking and revealing answers. Continue reading
