Before I begin with this special
section on cancer, I need to be very clear about something. The information
contained here is NOT meant to treat cancer or any other disease. In
fact, I do not treat cancer since I and many other health professionals
and research scientists do not consider it to be an illness. Cancer is
a condition that can occur in the body due to an immune system that is
not able to do its job correctly. We know that by the time a cancer can
be medically diagnosed by most traditional testing methods, it is has generally
been growing for 5-10 years. The body was unable to destroy the first few
cells (that many experts say our bodies produce every day) and the cancer
cells slowly grew and multiplied. As they became larger, they possibly
gained the ability to shield themselves so that the body not only could
not destroy them, but in fact might not even have known they were there
anymore. The purpose of what I do and of what the information set forth
here is designed for is therefore NOT to directly kill cancer cells. Cancer
cells are in fact YOUR cells and not the cells of some different organism
such as would be the case if they were a virus, bacteria, or parasite.
The idea is to change the biological terrain of your body so that it is
no longer hospitable to having the abnormal cancer cells, while at the
same time helping your immune system to do its job better. In this way,
if successful, some of the cells will redifferentiate back to normal cells
while others will be destroyed by your immune system’s soldiers such
as your NK or natural killer cells. This can be a long and difficult task
and some immune products can be costly. Remember how many years it took
for these cells to get to the point they are currently at! The most important
things that must all be carried out as soon as possible are (in no particular
BOOKS TO HELP YOU UNDERSTAND WHY THE MEDICAL
PROFESSION IS SO IN THE DARK ABOUT CANCER AND ITS TREATMENTS
Special CANCER (and immune enhancing) diet
Before I begin, let me clarify something about food choices, cancer, and the medical industry. Physicians are taught almost nothing about clinical nutrition and diet. Dieticians are also taught almost nothing about clinical nutrition and neither professional would be able to pass the national board exam in clinical nutrition. To ask most doctors about nutritional supplementation or diets for cancer would be like asking a plumber or an electrician for information about how to make your financial investments. Always be certain that you ask questions from professionals who are thoroughly trained in the area of your question or else their incorrect answers and lack of knowledge will be partly your fault.
It can be very difficult to radically change your dietary habits. Keep in mind that your body is fighting a tremendous battle and it needs your help in two very important ways.
First, your body needs you to do your utmost to eliminate all of the things, which helped it, get to its present unhealthy condition. Second- your body needs you to supply it with all of the necessary building blocks and possibly many special supplements so that it can work its magic (but it is not magic) of helping to support and increase its ability to fight the cancer cells.
FOODS TO ELIMINATE (as much as possible)
All foods with any type of natural or synthetic sweeteners added.
(Use Stevia instead).
A study done in Europe showed that micro waving changes the molecular structure of foods, making them depressive to the immune system, therefore I highly advise against the consumption of foods cooked defrosted or re-heated in a microwave if you are trying to improve your health and immune system.
All foods made from any kind of flour should be reduced as much as possible, or eliminated. This includes whole wheat breads as well as all cakes, cookies pastas, etc. If you insist on eating pasta, make it a whole grain Aspelt@ pasta and eat as little pasta and as much vegetable/tomato sauce as possible. The body converts flour products into sugars very rapidly, and cancer feeds on this sugar. Let=s feed the healthy cells and not the cancer. Also eliminate all Apopped@ or Apuffed@ grains as these may be even worse. If you must eat a piece of bread per day (not more!) than make it Ezekiel bread from Food for Life.
Eliminate any food which contains any Apartially hydrogenated@ oil of
No ordinary poultry, red meats, or standard eggs. Use only those, which
were antibiotic and hormone free from birth to death and raised on diets
as close as possible to their natural diets. San Diego residents may
purchase top quality beef and chicken from Wrights Poultry at 1043 Broadway
in Chula Vista (improving your health IS NOT be convenient!)
No canned foods, and frozen only if necessary. Fresh live foods whenever
FOODS TO INCLUDE IN YOUR NEW HEALTHY DIET
ORGANIC IS ALWAYS PREFERABLE IF AFFORDABLE.
Fresh vegetables raw or cooked No limit, eat lots of non-starchy vegetables! and season them however you like them best. (Most spices are very healthy especially ginger and turmeric and all fresh herbs). Cooked vegetables are often digested more easily by people with cancer than raw vegetables, unless the raw ones are juiced.
Raw fresh fruit should be reduced as much as possible, however an apple a day or a portion of fresh berries is fine as long as it is not strawberries.
Beans, always soaked over night first and eaten in small quantities. Neither grains nor beans should be a dominant food source but rather may be added in small quantities if desired. They contain a lot of starch which converts to sugar. adzuki, pinto, kidney, great northern, etc. DO NOT EAT ANY SOY PRODUCTS EXCEPT THOSE THAT STATE ON THE LABEL THAT THEY HAVE BEEN EITHER FERMENTED OR AGED! (Miso, tempeh and natto are good, but tofu, soy milk and soy cheeses are bad) for more information go to www.soyonlineservice.co.nz
Whole large grains, always soaked overnight, such as spelt, kamut, barley. Small grains need not be soaked such as amaranth, quinoa, and teff. Some of the most nutritious grains appear to be teff, quinoa and amaranth. Barley converts to sugar very slowly and is therefore also an excellent grain. In general, grains should not be consumed as a main food but rather as a small portion, if desired, along with your plate full of healthy vegetables, properly raised animal protein and good fats and oils.
Eggs are fine as long as you buy San Pasqual, Shelton's, or a free range preferably organic egg. They may be cooked separately or added to any other food. Poached or boiled. For frying use coconut butter, or ghee. (Coconut butter only from Omega Nutrition). Eggs should be from vegetarian fed hens and be free of hormones and antibiotics. (New Zealand eggs may also be fine). The free range ones get the additional benefit of eating some of the insects that are part of their natural diet.
Cook beef as rare as possible. The best is the New Zealand Beef and the beef from Wrights mentioned above. These are both from pasture fed animals and NOT grain or corn fed. Rare beef has a great deal more nutrition and is also much easier to digest than beef cooked medium or more.
Pasteurized milk has had all of its health benefits destroyed by heating, so the only good quality milk is Organic Pastures7 Claravale7 whole Raw milk available only in San Diego, LA, and Orange counties. If you MUST drink a pasteurized milk, use Horizon Organic and use only whole milk, but the RAW is far- far better. Use foods as presented by nature, every time humans change them, we make them less healthy.
Good quality organic plain Whole Milk yoghurt is OK if you have no problem with dairy products. You may sweeten it with stevia and add a small amount of fresh cut up berries for added flavor.
Acceptable oils for any kind of cooking or sauteeing are limited to
Ghee, raw sweet butter, or coconut or sesame oil from either OmegaJ,
or FloraJ Omega may be ordered at 1- 800-661-3529
ALL OILS MUST BE KEPT REFRIGERATED (EXCEPT COCONUT)
TRY TO DRINK TWO QUARTS (or more) OF GOOD WATER (BETWEEN MEALS) EVERY DAY
The two best drinks are water and fresh carrot juice. (Must be raw and NOT pasteurized)
Never eat within 2 hours of bedtime
Some possible beginning supplements while you're waiting to see me. If you wish to be aggressive in assisting your body in its ability to fight or if you wish to add them to whatever your own health practitioner is doing with you.
These suggestions are nowhere near the amount of information you need when you are fighting cancer, but it is a substantial start. I do not really like to give supplement suggestions prior to the initial consultations, however since I am generally booked 6-12 weeks ahead, I make an exception with cancer. In addition, I use VERY few network (MLM) products in my practice, but Immune-26 is an excellent product and enables you to get started prior to seeing me in person.
Please consult your current health professional before starting any new program. This information is neither a cure for cancer nor a general recommendation that everyone take if they have been diagnosed with cancer.
I do not know you and have never met you and so this is simply a very short list of some beginning supplements that I often use with cancer patients. It is NEITHER a personal recommendation nor a treatment suggestion nor a prescription.
