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 order):

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.
All foods with any type of natural or synthetic sweeteners added.
(Use Stevia instead).
A study done in Europe showed that microwaving 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 spelt 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 popped or puffed grains as these may be even worse. If you must eat some kind of bread (I don't eat bread) the best ones I have found are the two Paleo breads from www.JulianBakery.com as well as their Net Carb Zero bread. Their Paleo Wraps are acceptable as well. Ezekiel Bread IS NOT ACCEPTABLE as it contains BOTH wheat and soy.
Eliminate all foods cooked in any type of deep fat fryer whether fast food or at a fancy restaurant. In other words no French fries, onion rings, tempura, fried zucchini, etc. (ask me how to make healthy ones). No chips unless they are baked, not fried, (and contain NO added oils) and keep that to an absolute minimum since they are made from flour.
Eliminate any food which contains any partially 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
ORGANIC IS ALWAYS PREFERRED 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 for any meal but rather may be added in SMALL quantity if desired. Beans are far better than grains and the best grain for most people is Barley. Adzuki, pinto, kidney, lentils, 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 http://www.wholesoystory.com/ Or www.PPNF.org and put soy into the search box.
Small grains need not be soaked such as amaranth, quinoa, and teff. Black or red quinoa are healthier than the ivory one and these small ancient grains are some of the most nutritious. 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 buyPastured as your first choice or Free Range as your second choice. Top brands (if they meet the previous criteria) include Vital Farms, Pasture Verde, Frenz, Eben-Haezer, and a few others. They may be cooked by themselves or added to any other food. Poached or boiled is best. For frying use coconut oil, palm kernel oil or ghee. Eggs should be from vegetarian fed hens and be free of hormones and antibiotics. The pastured ones get the additional benefit of eating some of the worms, insects, and foliage that are part of their natural species specific diet.
Cook beef and lamb as rare as possible. The best is grass fed and organic but grass fed is the most important. Rare beef (or lamb) has a great deal more nutrition and is also much easier to digest than beef cooked medium or more.
Pasteurized milk has had much of its health benefits and all of its enzymes destroyed by heating, so the only good quality milk in southern California is RAW from Organic Pastures or Claravale - whole never reduced fat. If you MUST drink a pasteurized milk, get the Grass milk from Organic Valley or the milk from Strauss dairy, but the RAW is far- far better if grass fed raw is available in your state. 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, luo han or Yacon syrup and add a SMALL amount of fresh cut up berries for added flavor if you must.
Acceptable oils for any kind of cooking or sauteeing are limited to Ghee, grass fed butter (Kerry Gold is fine), or coconut or sesame oil from either Omega, or Flora. Omega may be ordered at 1- 800-661-3529
For oils which will not be fried such as for making salad dressing, or for use in soups, stews or on the few acceptable noodles (Kelp Noodles or Shirataki noodles only) use extra virgin olive oil, flax seed oil if not heated at all, sunflower oil, pistachio oil, walnut oil, or a combination from the Omega or Flora (or Rapunzel) . Only use unfiltered raw apple cider vinegar when making your own salad dressings.
(ALL OILS MUST BE KEPT REFRIGERATED (EXCEPT COCONUT)
TRY TO DRINK TWO QUARTS (or more) OF GOOD WATER (BETWEEN MEALS) EVERY DAY. Best water is NOT TAP AND NOT DISTILLED. Fiji and Volvic are good or any bottled water which says that it is from an artesian well and has a pH of between 7.0 and 8.0.
Two of the best drinks are good water and fresh pressed organic vegetable juices. (Must be raw and NOT pasteurized)
Okay, once in a while you could make a healthy soda from seltzer or club soda with a small amount of some good quality freshly juiced (by you) organic lemon or limes with stevia for added sweetness. A Fresh lemon or lime may also be squeezed into your daily water for added benefit if you like. Much better soda would be if you used Gerolsteiner sparkling mineral water instead of seltzer with Stevita, NOW, or Sweet Leaf brand flavoring drops added. But water is better than carbonated water.
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.
Two of my favorite DVD's on cancer are Cancer Nutrition and Healing by Jerry Brunetti and my own Cancer Your Doctors Lack of Knowledge can Shorten Your Life. Both are available from www.PPNF.org.
