Foods That Fight Cancer and Foods That Help Cancer.

It is beyond doubt that there are foods that help to fight cancer, and foods that help it to flourish.

Image Office.com
Why is it that....the more food consumed... the more cancer is evident? Could it be because the standard of nutrition consumed is so pitifully low?

This is shown by the following observations...

First let's look at how rural Russians eat, and why they are so slim and healthy...

The mistake is that we have recently been mercilessly encouraged to buy and consume foods that are EMPTY of vital nutrients.

It's the TYPE of food that matters...

By getting back to nature, and eating more raw foods, you take one giant step towards a healthier you.

On the other hand...

Processed, artificial, fake foods....(often pretending to be a healthy choice) are usually the antithesis of health creating foods! And over time, they are disease-creating foods. Deep down you know this to be true.

In fact, even good honest fruits and vegetables we assume to be super-healthy...... now have 30 TIMES LESS vital nutrients (vitamins and minerals) than back in 1950, due to modern chemical based farming methods, designed to maximise profit, rather than produce healthy people. 

And.....because the food on offer is largely LACKING in the vital key nutrients our bodies desperately need, we are compelled (subconsciously) to EAT LARGE AMOUNTS OF FOOD.....to compensate, - so as to possibly increase the odds of getting the required vital nutrients our system needs to ultimately survive. This possibly explains why millions are carrying so much excess weight!! 

According to BBC News...

The number of overweight and obese adults in the developing world has almost quadrupled to around one billion since 1980, says a report from a UK think tank.

In the UK, 64% of adults are classed as being overweight or obese. BBC News report.

And two thirds of Americans are overweight or obese.

Fast food and unhealthy processed foods and drinks like cola are the main culprit.


The Prime Cause of Cancer:

"Cancer, above all other diseases, has countless secondary causes. But, even for cancer, there is only one prime cause. Summarized in a few words, the prime cause of cancer is the replacement of the respiration of oxygen in normal body cells by a fermentation of sugar." -- Dr. Otto H. Warburg in Lecture. Wikipedia - Otto Warburg

Nobel Prize winning scientist Dr Otto Warburg discovered that cancer no longer requires oxygen, but instead resorts to a primitive survival state whereby it feeds on glucose.

Sugar!! Yes Sugar!!

This is not to say that cancer is caused by sugar, but it is, - by definition of the above scientific fact,  certainly FUELLED by sugar.

Knowing this, why would we feed ourselves relentlessly on sugar...and other carbohydrates that become glucose (sugar) shortly after consuming? Is this not mad?

And.... why does the medical profession not warn cancer patients about the gigantic folly of continuing to eat (and drink) tons of sugar? To not do so is akin to a criminal act in my view, like a mechanic waving a customer goodbye and not warning him that his brakes are faulty! 

Instead, most cancer patients (including myself at the time) are told you can eat whatever you like. Not one restriction!!

Positron emission tomography (PET Scan)

Yet when they do a "pet scan", they use a radioactive liquid laced with GLUCOSE so as to track its progress through the body, and observe where the radioactive sugar/glucose might go...and, by this process can ascertain where suspected tumours might be growing. Any cancer is lit up like a Christmas tree!! revealing itself as it feasts on the glucose.

  • Cancer - PET scans can show up a cancer, reveal the stage of the cancer, show whether the cancer has spread, help doctors decide on the most appropriate cancer treatment, and give doctors an indication on the effectiveness of ongoing chemotherapy A PET scan several weeks after starting radiation treatment for lung cancer can indicate whether the tumor will respond to the treatment, a study showed. This article looks at whether PET scans are beneficial during cancer diagnosis, staging and monitoring. http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/154877.php
This is proof that cancer feeds on sugar, if any more were needed... One would assume that sugar should be considered the enemy! One that is well within our control! Yet the medical profession seems to totally ignore such logic.

True we need glucose for energy, but we DON'T NEED TO FORCE FEED CANCER!!! as if fattening up a prize bull for a horticultural show!

Those that eat the most food, tend to get the most cancer
If modern day FOOD was the main cause of cancer, then those that consume the most food, would obviously get more cancer. And this appears to be the case.

Studies confirm that high risk groups, like the over weight and obese are a lot more prone to cancer. Why?

By definition, these are people consuming the most food. And if that food happens to be extremely unhealthy - like the infamous "Standard American Diet"...(SAD) or similar... then it's highly likely that such a diet is LACKING in good nutrients, and OVERFLOWING with bad nutrients, like abundant sugar, processed ingredients and additives. This type of eating is suspected of being at the heart of the appalling health statistics we see in Western society in the modern era, with heart disease, stroke, and cancer being terrifyingly common.

If cars were sometimes suffering catastrophic failure due to "engine rot" disease, and the cars using a certain type of new improved synthetic fuel were far more prone to that disease, then it would soon be discontinued, and everyone would see the likely culprit.

All this requires unreasonable acts of biochemistry! simply to stay alive.

 Monkey Sanctuary: Treats making pet monkeys diabetic

The charity Wild Futures says a third of the monkeys at its sanctuary in Cornwall  (UK) - most of which have been rescued from the pet trade - have developed chronic diabetes after being fed inappropriate food by their owners. 

Such monkeys have evolved in the rain forests over millions of years, and are then stupidly fed human type food and candy! 

What sane person would imagine they wouldn't get sick?

But is the human race so very different from our biological cousins? And is it not predictable that we too would get sick eating such unnatural highly processed foods developed in the laboratory?

Human genes, - and our body mechanisms - have had a very short time to adapt to such change. But given that much of this food is unnatural and essentially unhealthy in the extreme, one cannot expect anything other than plentiful disease. i.e. Cause and effect.

Modern food is created for profit, and has no other purpose, no matter what the ad-team might try to tell us. And the more irresistible they can make it taste and look, the more we buy. And if cheaper, less ideal ingredients equal more profit, then that is what will often be used.

Truth About pH and Cancer

What's the Truth About pH and Cancer?

pH strip testing kit

This subject is one of great debate...and confusion. Let's investigate the FACTS, and find some logical answers.

Acid forming foods:
Most of the foods in your local supermarket are acid forming. Almost all processed food,  fast foods and snacks are acid forming. Cola's and most sugar-laden drinks are acid forming. And most of us eat little of the alkalizing foods our bodies need.

This means most people are overly acidic, and that is a disease forming situation, because vital nutrients and minerals are being used up to counteract these acid forming foods. Thus your body can become deficient of vital minerals that are needed for maintaining health. Bad news!

For those that insist that pH cannot be improved by diet...
perhaps you will believe the major authority on all things medical and science based research, PubMed. PubMed comprises more than 24 million citations for biomedical literature from MEDLINE, life science journals, and online books. Citations may include links to full-text content from PubMed Central and publisher web sites.
Here is the conclusion, following a page of discussion titled: 

The Alkaline Diet: Is There Evidence That an Alkaline pH Diet Benefits Health?

9. Conclusion

Alkaline diets result in a more alkaline urine pH and may result in reduced calcium in the urine, however, as seen in some recent reports, this may not reflect total calcium balance because of other buffers such as phosphate. There is no substantial evidence that this improves bone health or protects from osteoporosis. However, alkaline diets may result in a number of health benefits as outlined below: (my emphasis)
  1. Increased fruits and vegetables in an alkaline diet would improve the K/Na ratio and may benefit bone health, reduce muscle wasting, as well as mitigate other chronic diseases such as hypertension and strokes.
  2. The resultant increase in growth hormone with an alkaline diet may improve many outcomes from cardiovascular health to memory and cognition.
  3. An increase in intracellular magnesium, which is required for the function of many enzyme systems, is another added benefit of the alkaline diet. Available magnesium, which is required to activate vitamin D, would result in numerous added benefits in the vitamin D apocrine/exocrine systems.
  4. Alkalinity may result in added benefit for some chemotherapeutic agents that require a higher pH.
From the evidence outlined above, it would be prudent to consider an alkaline diet to reduce morbidity and mortality of chronic disease that are plaguing our aging population. One of the first considerations in an alkaline diet, which includes more fruits and vegetables, is to know what type of soil they were grown in since this may significantly influence the mineral content. At this time, there are limited scientific studies in this area, and many more studies are indicated in regards to muscle effects, growth hormone, and interaction with vitamin D.  (My emphasis) Read the full article:

Note that it is accepted that an alkaline diet (foodstuff) will increase alkalinity, with corresponding health benefits.

It is important to understand that the pH of the blood is automatically held at a steady 7.4 pH in order to maintain life, (otherwise death quickly follows) but, the rest of the body (approx 75 trillion cells) have their own pH requirements, depending on type or organ. However, your blood only represents 8 pints of fluid, (about 5 kg in weight) wheras, for example, the average male might weigh 75 kg. suggesting that about 70 kg of body mass is not blood, and also has key pH requirements to maintain. 

It is this aspect that needs to be addressed (by diet) for optimal cellular health or healing. It is certainly wise to avoid becoming too acidic at the cellular level.

The video below explains the true nature of how acid-alkaline balance works in the body...Some of which will surprise you!

Here's a quick crash-course in the subject of pH and how it affects your health, and how you can use that knowledge to solve various health issues you may have.

Being TOO ACIDIC will make you prone to certain ailments, and being TOO ALKALINE can likewise render you prone to other health problems. This video also gives some great advice on how to obtain a healthy pH with a few simple substances.

Cancer and pH



There seems to be some confusion as to what Dr Otto Warburg discovered, and said on this subject. Below is reference to Wikipedia on this issue.

The Prime Cause of Cancer:

"Cancer, above all other diseases, has countless secondary causes. But, even for cancer, there is only one prime cause. Summarized in a few words, the prime cause of cancer is the replacement of the respiration of oxygen in normal body cells by a fermentation of sugar." -- Dr. Otto H. Warburg in Lecture. Wikipedia - Otto Warburg

Scientific explanation:

This video is essential viewing to understand the complexity of the process, and how the body works to "balance the books" so to speak. You will also learn how vitally important acids are to fight pathogens.

It is hoped that this information will help people avoid making mistakes regarding pH. With greater understanding of the processes involved, you can make better informed choices.

It is probably wrong to try and live with a strictly "alkaline body" as some suggest. You can go too far. It is probably a good strategy against cancer to RECTIFY your pH, which may have become too acid due to a poor diet over many years. (Cancer also makes the body more acidic as a side effect).  But as you will have learnt, becoming too alkaline can create a host of health problems too.

Correct balance is key to good health and fighting disease. A truly healthy diet - and plenty of exercise - should guarantee a consistent healthy pH. However, to alkalise your body substantially, for a short period while fighting cancer, is apparently a good tactic. This is what I did myself, by including a supplement called Ultimate pH Balance, which are drops you add to a glass of water. I also took plenty of barley grass, a very alkalising supplement. I am convinced that to alkalise the body for a short period of a few weeks in this way can significantly help to stunt the progress of cancer.

Dr Robert O.Young:

It is said that cancer patients are normally acidic. This is due to wrong diet or possibly stress issues etc. Orthodox medicine pays no great attention to this fact. The cause of your cancer is never really investigated or discussed. According to Robert O. Young, cancer can be caused by a failure of the body to eliminate acidic waste from your body. i.e. retaining its own waste products.

The body will always maintain the blood pH at almost 7.4 and all superfluous acid will be dumped into the intercellular fluid, and then eventually it will go to the kidneys and be eliminated via urine.

Saliva should be at least 7.2.

Urine, when measured with a pH strip, should be 7.4 or greater. Anything less than 7.4 indicates you are in acidosis. Cancer patients and diabetics are always going to be around 6 or 6.2

The best time to measure pH is when we are most acidic, which is first thing when you wake up in the morning.

The importance of juicing for bringing your body to an optimum alkaline state, and resetting your health quickly

Professor Paul Davies.

 "Cancer cells are not invincible, they are quite vulnerable. Cancer loves sugar, hates oxygen, so we have to deprive them of sugar, give them plenty of oxygen, and restore pH".  Professor Paul Davies.

Fasting to Banish Cancer

The benefits of FASTING, and how it can help the body heal and get rid of many health issues... and, 

how it can double the lifespan of test animals!

Various forms of fasting can have remarkable effects for health and healing. Juice fasting is associated with a number of alternative cancer treatments. Nutrient-dense juices can deliver nutrition on a level impossible from normal foods, (or supplements) guaranteeing that your body has maximum nutritional support, while getting a rest from the almost constant digestion process.

But is it safe?

Image Office.com

And does it work?

Below I will explain this important concept...

Are You Tired and Lazy......on the INSIDE?

Is your inner system getting time to repair and restore your body, carrying out vital maintenance? Or is it SLUGGISH and over burdened by almost constant food consumption and digestion?

Constant digestion and processing of food takes a great deal of energy and resouces over many hours, throughout every day of your life...

Imagine that the digestive system and your body were represented by a [poorly managed] rail and subway network, that gives scant regard to maintenance, but is greedy for more and more passengers. In this scenario, passengers represent food. Now the more passengers that flood the system each day, the more overwhelmed and stressed-out the workers on that system become. If this type of passenger traffic continues unabated, then things will soon start to break down. Essential maintenance inevitably gets behind schedule, and problems multiply. A catastrophic failure is now only a matter of time.

From birth, most of us are well fed, - often FORCE FED! And if we refuse food, we are chastised or punished! "You cannot leave the table until you've eaten the lot" is a common attitude. Thus we learn from a very young age that we must EAT EAT EAT....even if not hungry!

As a result, we inadvertently train our systems to want, need, and expect, a constant intake of food. And who benefits from this habit?  The food industry!!!

Add the fact that most of us in modern society live in a world of abundant food availability...and we start to see why health problems are so common.

The problem with this mode of human behaviour is that your inner system rarely gets a significant rest. Our digestive system is soon in the habit of almost constant workload, putting undue strain in the whole system, especially as we get older and into middle age.

In fact, the whole system, including the vital liver and kidneys, are in almost constant demand, as we snack and gorge throughout the day. Is this healthy?


Almost ALL accidents and tragedies relating to large scale complex enterprises are the result of over-work, poor maintenance, shoddy workmanship, bad management, or cutting corners. This includes medical accidents in hospitals. 

If the body is constantly using most of its energy to digest and process food, (throughout the day and night in many cases) then vital maintenance may be far from optimum.

Fasting provides a vital break, so that essential maintenance can occur. In the absence of regular food, the digestive system has a holiday! And all associated systems get a rest too. But this also allows room for vital repair and HEALING to take place.

After the feast...You will have noticed that after a heavy meal, especially on Christmas day or Thanks Giving, people often cannot help but have a nap. This is because the body makes you tired to force a slow-down...and uses the energy available for digestion. Lions may sleep for two days after a big kill.

Beware: people with heart issues are most vulnerable to heart attack after a large meal. Thus eating in gigantic quantity is very unwise, due to the strain it puts on the system. Likewise, vigorous exercise after a heavy meal can also be dangerous.

Fasting triggers healing...

Because there is no food, the body must now meet its energy needs from other sources, so after a while, will start to live from FAT stores, and, according to Raymond Francis M.Sc. (author of Never Fear Cancer Again) fasting triggers healing, and the body naturally searches for dead cells, damaged tissues, fatty deposits, tumours etc, tearing them down so they can be burned as fuel or expelled as waste. This is survival mode.

Never Fear Cancer Again: How to Prevent and Reverse Cancer (Never Be)

In short, by this process, a tumour can be starved of vital needs, while at the same time, the body is encouraged to scour the system for alternative food sources and energy, and devouring anything not vital to staying alive and healthy. That can include tumours. Bear in mind that if the tumour is starved of its essential daily nutrient needs, then it is, by definition, significantly weakened. This concept is obviously best used in conjunction with other key strategies.

Standard fasting, in a nutshell, is to go without food, apart from water, for a number of days or weeks. This practise in itself can deliver major health benefits. (All long fasts should be done under medical supervision).

Pre-history: In a truly natural environment, humans (like all other animals) would have eaten on a very sporadic basis, often going for days without food.

Modern life and technology has provided an unnatural abundance of food. And eating such voluminous amounts of [easily-attainable] food is at the heart of many modern-day health problems and diseases.

By the same token, it could be true that eating an abundance of "HEALTHY" food, may also be quite unhealthy, if the system is still over-taxed.

From: Sciece Slashdot

schwit1 sends word of research showing that cycles of prolonged fasting can both protect the immune system from harm and also induce regeneration by causing stem cells to start renewing themselves.'In both mice and a Phase 1 human clinical trial (abstract), long periods of not eating significantly lowered white blood cell counts. In mice, fasting cycles then "flipped a regenerative switch," changing the signaling pathways for hematopoietic stem cells, which are responsible for the generation of blood and immune systems, the research showed. "PKA is the key gene that needs to shut down in order for these stem cells to switch into regenerative mode. It gives the OK for stem cells to go ahead and begin proliferating and rebuild the entire system," explained [study author Valter Longo], noting the potential of clinical applications that mimic the effects of prolonged fasting to rejuvenate the immune system. "And the good news is that the body got rid of the parts of the system that might be damaged or old, the inefficient parts, during the fasting. Now, if you start with a system heavily damaged by chemotherapy or aging, fasting cycles can generate, literally, a new immune system."'http://science.slashdot.org/story/14/06/07/1633232/fasting-triggers-stem-cell-regeneration-of-damaged-old-immune-system

See Also:
From Life Extention Foundation: Fasting and Cellular Toxicity 
Fasting triggers a cleansing process that affects every cell and tissue in the body; elimination of dead and dying cells while stimulating generation of new cells. (Shirley's Wellness Cafe 2003). During a fast, toxic waste products impairing nourishment of cells are eliminated with restoration of normal metabolic rates and oxygenation. A fast offers respite from energy-demanding digestion (10% of caloric intake is used for mastication, digestion, assimilation, and elimination). Instead, energy can be redirected toward improved immune function, elimination and cell growth.

Within 24 hours of food restriction, digestive enzymes stop entering the stomach and instead other enzymes are released into the intestines and bloodstream, where they circulate and digest waste materials of daily living. Advocates of fasting believe that the body will first decompose and burn those cells and tissues which are diseased, damaged, or aged, e.g., dead cells and morbid accumulations (tumors, abscesses, and fatty deposits). Renowned advocates of fasting refer to fasting as a means of burning the rubbish' (Saxion, 2002). Essential and vital organs, such as nervous tissue and brain, are not damaged during a well-planned fast.

The Best Way to Fast 
Authorities agree that juice fasting is the best, safest, and most effective method of fasting. The classic form of fasting extended, (pure water fast) introduces considerable toxins into the bloodstream and has been discredited as the best form of fasting. A water fast is often too debilitating. When fresh fruit and vegetable juices, alkalizing vegetable broths, and herbal teas are used, electrolytes are maintained. The faster receives a daily infusion of vitamins, minerals, and enzymes. Freshly prepared juices require no digestion and are easily assimilated. Juices do not disrupt the healing and rejuvenating effects of autolysis (self-digestion). By providing about 400 calories per day, the release of toxins from fat cells is more gradual than a strict water fast. Read the full article here:
Life Extension Foundation - fasting and calorie restriction benefits

The advantage of Juice fasting:

I would not recommend ordinary (water only) fasting for anyone with cancer. This is because your body requires plentiful nutrients to fight the good fight, and maintain health and strength.

With cancer, one requires an array of important nutrients. Intelligent Juice fasting can provide first class nutrition in concentrated (organic) form, allowing the body to have sufficient capacity to both fight and heal health problems.

Raymond Francis advises a fast that involves vegetable juicing, so as to obtain vital nutrients while otherwise having minimal or no solid food intake. Needless to say, you will need to read and study exactly how to do this safely, and possibly with advice from your doctor.

Please note: this is just a small part of the approach Raymond Francis advocates in his outstanding book. You will learn a whole new perspective from this book, and will never live in
such fear of cancer again.

I found this book a valuable addition to my collection of books on the topic of cancer, and would recommend it as a great source of additional facts to support your efforts regarding cancer.

Never Fear Cancer Again: How to Prevent and Reverse Cancer (Never Be)

The Breuss Cancer Cure

"Very easy for reading and understanding, furthermore I know a woman who lived 6 years instead 1 month (per doctors assumption) after using the therapy. Who ever wants to get better, not only from cancer but all kind of illnesses I recommend from the bottom of my heart". Quote from Amazon customer.

The breuss cancer cure is based on the concept of fasting with juice, as above, with special herbal supplements juices and teas, designed to nourish and heal the body, while starving the cancer. Again a very logical idea, that, judging by feedback, often works. 
Like any other treatment, it will not work for everyone, but is worth investigation.

Is it just coincidence that skinnier peoples - (in parts of the world where regular food is far from guaranteed, and who often go hungry for periods of time), tend to have FAR LESS CANCER? 

All animals fast when sick. We lose our appetite for a good reason, when ill. The system needs a rest!

For general health, it is suggested that fasting one day per week is not difficult to master, and can deliver major health benefits. This would add up to 52 days a year of "rest and repair" mode. That's over seven weeks of possible restoration time for your system!


Research has shown that when mice were fasted for 2 days a week they DOUBLED THEIR LIFESPAN, and were much healthier too! Research on other animals has observed similar results. This tends to imply a sound scientific basis for the benefits of fasting, and the value relating to its practise. It may also imply that REST and REPAIR are essential factors for a long healthy life, - made almost impossible by the modern habit of relentless heavy food intake.


The fact that animals, including man, lose appetite when sick, is proof-positive that there must be survival value in the process of fasting to restore health.

Fasting will involve detoxification. Removing toxins is an important part of the strategy.

Fasting switches the system to obtain energy needs from KETONES instead of glucose, which is bad news for cancer cells, which rely on glucose for energy and survival. (see video below)

A large part of the immune system (60 -70%) is involved with, and related to, the digestive system and the digestive tract, sorting out what is safe to go into the bloodstream from food, and eliminating what isn't. While fasting, it is effectively freed-up from that process once eating and digestion is ceased, and will instead be employed toward healing and restoring. As explained below.

Burn Away Fat Cells With Intermittent Fasting

A quick Fasting 101 from Dr Mercola

Obtaing professional qualified medical advice on this topic is important. This article by Dr Mercola explains some of the amazing benefits of intermittent fasting, as well as the potential hazards regarding different health issues one might have. He also lists potential problems or side effects.


"One of the mechanisms that makes fasting so effective for weight loss is the fact that it provokes the secretion of human growth hormone (HGH), which is a fat-burning hormone. It also plays an important role in muscle building. Fasting also increases catecholamines, which increases resting energy expenditure, while decreasing insulin levels, which allows stored fat to be burned for fuel. Together, these and other factors will turn you into an effective fat-burning machine".

"Even more remarkable, the study also found that fasting triggered a dramatic rise in HGH—1,300 percent in women, and an astounding 2,000 percent in men!
HGH, commonly referred to as "the fitness hormone" plays an important role in maintaining health, fitness and longevity, including promotion of muscle growth, and boosting fat loss by revving up your metabolism. The fact that it helps build muscle while simultaneously promoting fat loss explains why HGH helps you lose weight without sacrificing muscle mass, and why even athletes can benefit from the practice (as long as they don't overtrain and are careful about their nutrition).
The only other thing that can compete in terms of dramatically boosting HGH levels is high-intensity interval training. If you're over the age of 30, especially if you lead an increasingly sedentary lifestyle, you've likely entered a phase known as somatopause (age-related growth hormone deficiency). As your HGH levels decrease, your levels of insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) also decrease, and this is yet another important part of what drives your body's aging process".  Full article: Dr Mercola on fasting for health

Glucose Vs Ketones:

Furthermore, when the body is starved of food, it converts fat into ketones, as an alternative energy source to normal glucose. Cancer is desperate for glucose to survive. CANCER CANNOT SURVIVE ON KETONES!!! As proven by this CBN News report video below.

Fred Hatfield had widespread metastatic cancer in his skeletal structure, and was given three months to live by three different doctors, but he cured himself of his cancer with a low carb (ketogenic diet) and is still clear of cancer a year later... 

See fascinating video (Starving cancer) below.

This video exposes the fact that The Cancer Industry  has ignored this painfully obvious logic for decades!!!

Both juice fasting, and ketogenic diet, work by exploiting the fact that the body can switch energy supply to rely on ketones, while cancer cells rely exclusively on glucose for energy supply, and to survive.

I plan to cover ketones, and ketogenic diet soon.

The fasting approach is not recommended for all cancer situations, and not suitable in regard to liver cancer. See book for important context and details.

Ketosis, (when the body is using ketones for energy source) is usually acid forming...as in diets such as Atkins Diet, due to resorting to a lot of meat products to attain ketosis. However, with juice fasting, this should not happen, as vegitable juices will help maintain healthy pH range.

Both fasting, and ketogenic type diet, should not be tried without access to trustworthy advice and instruction to follow.

A number of other alternative cancer treatments employ juicing as part of the protocol, the most famous being The Gerson Therapy. (Link to testimonial below)

Fat sick and nearly dead!

Bloated, over-fed bodies, eating for pleasure most of the time, will rarely get time to repair and restore. (thin people may sometimes be eating a great deal of the time, but their faster metabolism may simply burn the food quicker). And even "health freaks" that do lots of training, may never really give their internal system a significant rest.

Is this one reason why overweight / obese people get the most disease....including much higher cancer risk?

Full length version of this famous film / journey...from major disease, to robust health. Fat Sick, and nearly Dead...

A 60 day juicing experiment...

Watching this film, you will grow to  understand how, (given the opportunity), the human body can regain health and eliminate disease. This will inspire you to fully appreciate the role of diet, food and abuse thereof. You will also learn about the immense disease reversing power of juicing.

A powerful and moving story, about one mans tour across America, while juicing for 60 days, and coincidentally meeting a hugely overweight trucker, who, by his own assessment, was destined for an early grave, who suffered from the same life threatening disease as himself.

If you truly desire to educate yourself about health, then watch this film. Even doctors, (especially doctors) could learn much from this experiment.

Fasting and Cancer: Has Nature Provided a Treatment All Along?

Here we have some strong evidence to support the apparent benefits of fasting in regard to cancer, from the world of conventional cancer treatment...and research...actually from a radiation oncologist. 

From: http://www.myhealthwire.com/news/breakthroughs/924

As a radiation oncologist, my research generally involves studying ways to make radiation therapy work better to kill cancer cells with fewer side effects. Oftentimes, this includes reducing the dose or potentially eliminating radiation therapy or other treatments altogether. However, as a promoter of natural health, including a healthy diet and high activity levels, I am constantly studying ways to kill and stop cancer cells through lifestyle alone (both personally and professionally). One of these methods is dietary fasting.
Humans have been fasting throughout most of their existence on this planet. Nowadays, for most Americans fasting consists of the grueling 3-4 hours in-between their bowl of “heart healthy” breakfast cereal or a muffin and their sandwich for lunch. This was not the case in our not-very-distant past. Back then, good old-fashioned fasting likely consisted of a lack of food for a large portion of the day or even several days — fasting from breakfast to lunch was a walk in the park.
Fasting to fight cancer?
Fast-forwarding several hundred centuries, a recent hot topic has been one of trying to discover methods to “starve” cancer cells, whether through carbohydrate restriction,1 calorie restriction,2 a ketogenic diet,3 or fasting,4 as has been discussed in the recent study entitled Fasting Enhances the Response of Glioma to Chemo- and Radiotherapy.
In this study, the authors attempt to increase our ability to kill glioma cells, the pesky brain tumors that are exquisitely resistant to most treatments, including chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and surgery. They also appear to have microscopic tentacle-like extensions and therefore are difficult to resect surgically, as the process of uprooting these tentacles would take out precious brain tissue as well. Thus, a method to help treat these pests is desperately needed.
After millions of years it appears that nature may have been providing us with this treatment, we just never knew it. In their study, Safdie and Brandhorst tested the effects of “starving” both cancer cells and normal cells without food for 48 hours. This was no modern-day fast (at least for us Americans) and it was performed in the face of chemotherapy and radiotherapy, which may be a daunting task for most cancer patients.
What they found was that the fast-sensitized mouse, rat, and human glioma cells to the treatment with chemoradiation, i.e. it resulted in significant killing of the cancer cells. They also found a significant decrease in blood sugar and IGF-1 in these animals during the fast and suggested that this may have played a large role, as we have discussed before here and here.
An interesting twist to their findings is the fact that while fasting may sensitize the bad guys to treatment, it appears to spare our good cells from much of the toxicity of chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Other words, when they decreased the amount of available sugar available to cancer cells, cell death significantly occurred in these cells with no change in the normal cells exposed to chemotherapy. The fasted mice also experienced delayed tumor progression and lived significantly longer. Not a bad result from simply removing food for a couple days.
We published similar data from my last institution showing that, for mice who have breast cancer and undergo nutrient restriction (overall or alternate day fasting), radiation therapy works significantly better to slow tumor growth and downregulate vital cancer pathways.5 A review of the available data further points toward carbohydrate restriction.1 If fasting is too difficult for cancer patients, perhaps simply removing carbohydrates may be an easier dietary change.

Treating and fighting cancer
Like many cancer studies, if it helps chemotherapy or radiation therapy to kill cancer cells, it likely helps those of us without cancer to ward it off. Fasting is no different. Some have even recommended alternate daily fasts for health benefit,8 though that may be somewhat difficult to get most of us to follow (including me).
So what do I do?
Alternate daily fasts would leave me unbearable to be around during the work week, as I am constantly running around my department seeing patients, treating patients, and checking films. Every time I try an extended fast during a work day I end up running ragged. Though, I am still able to fast from dinner until the following lunch (14-16 hours) during my research days when I see fewer patients.
In my opinion, the easiest and favorite time to fast is on the weekends. Most Saturdays and Sundays I do not eat until lunch starting at the dinner before. I do drink a cup of coffee in the morning and usually follow this with some sort of physical activity, or if it is 12 degrees in January in Pittsburgh, I walk on the treadmill while reading a book or listening to a podcast. These types of fasts are quite easy and enjoyable, and leave me with a great feeling of accomplishment on the weekends.
What kind of fast will work for you? There is only one way to find out...

So there we have it, fasting can have significant healing benefits, not least it can slow and disrupt cancer growth. And as most of us eat far more food than we actually need, (thus we pile on the pounds) and...commonly eat foods with questionable parentage, it may be a good idea to consider fasting as part of a strategy to ultimately avoid cancer, or even conquer it. Yes we must get vital nutrients, but minor fasts have major benefits. And if, (as is logical), you starve cancer cells...that require mainly large amounts of sugar to thrive, then that must be something the medical profession should encourage! But instead they tell you to eat anything you want!! Don't ask me why!

Can the MIND Heal Cancer?

Why do doctors ignore people who heal cancer by alternative means?

Why no studies into the THOUSANDS of cases of spontaneous remission?

Radical Remission! Is it Possible that Your Mind Can Heal Cancer? 

Apparently so!

Yes, this is almost certainly true.....because everything is 100% connected, and our thoughts tend to create biochemical reactions, both positive and negative. There is a biochemical reaction to every emotion we feel. 

* See amazing Proof below...

like someone cured of cancer by a radiotherapy machine that wasn't actually working!!

All our thoughts (and events surrounding those thoughts), tend to create a biological reaction. The problem is that in our often stress-filled lives, we mostly experience NEGATIVE biological reaction.

Conversely, we can enjoy thoughts and events that result in POSITIVE biological reaction.
It is strongly indicated that STRESS...can have a huge impact on health, and is often at the heart of major illness, including cancer.

And...  what we BELIEVE can also have either positive, or negative effects and results for our health.

My warts disappeared like magic! But how?

When I was a teenager of about fifteen, I had a large wart on my knuckle. In fact it was a cluster of warts, commonly known as a king wart. This large wart would sometimes get scraped and bleed, given that I was a typical outdoor lad who lived in the country. However, one day I was with a mate in the back yard, and I asked my mother how I might get rid of the warts. To my surprise, she came up with a cure she had heard about many years earlier. She told me that all you need to do is rub it with some steak, then bury it in the garden....and when the meat rots, the warts will rot away too. Mother then went and fetched a small piece of steak, while me and my mate looked at each other with raised eyebrows. A few weeks later my warts started to crumble away and slowly disappear!! Before long they were completely gone, and never came back. The warts rotted to nothing, as did the meat...in the expected time frame!

I suppose that in my mind, I imagined the meat rotting away, and that was psychologically linked to the warts, and, even though sceptical, I probably had some expectation, due to SUGGESTION, that it might work....and that delivered the desired result.

Forty years later, when I was diagnosed with cancer, I believe this experience was hugely helpful, and provided a deeper understanding of how belief can help the body to heal and react in favourable ways.

Conversely, negative beliefs can have dire effect on your health and healing prospects.

Your Health is Extremely Reliant on WHAT YOUR MIND BELIEVES...

"When we truly understand and appreciate just how much our mindset controls our biology, we can use this knowledge to create health and happiness."

~ Dr. Bruce H. Lipton PhD, author of the book, Biology of Belief

"It's not stress that kills us, it is our reaction to it."

~ Hans Selye, pioneering Hungarian endocrinologist

The Pressure-Cooker Lifestyle...

In today's fast-paced world, people seem rarely 'philisophical' about life's ups and downs, and instead will often take things to heart, and get angry. In short, our world has become harsher and less tolerant in many ways. The drive toward competition in every sphere, has driven us to become less relaxed about life. Life can be akin to a pressure cooker. This state of affairs can be observed if you look at old films from the 1950's whereby most people would be seen to be living a much slower paced, relaxed way of life. If you then switch to a film from recent times, the faster pace of life, and all its pressures, becomes pretty obvious.

The harsh reality:
Whereas years ago we lived in close proximity and helped each other to get by and get through difficult times, nowadays we are more likely to go it alone, be independent minded, and show the world we are able to cope. Admitting we cannot cope is to imply weakness. Showing weakness has become taboo.

In short, modern life can mean PROLONGED and REGULAR bouts of anxiety and stress are extremely commonplace.

And...if you tighten a guitar string to the max, it is very easily broken. This is also true of health, resulting in heart problems, strokes, and other stress-related diseases.

However, this is not just about controlling or avoiding stress, it's about using your MIND and programming yourself to HEAL  - and get back to good health.

BUT FIRST... You need your body to be on side!

Why wouldn't it be? 

Because we all do a lot of internal chatter...and cussing and cursing ourselves can become a daily habit. Could it be that we often program ourselves to the point where the body is insulted and loses the will to fight and do the essential maintenance? Or, if afflicted with a disease, it could easily lack the necessary motivation or will-power to fight the good fight!

Understanding your subconscious mind...

And the possibility of (inadvertently) programming yourself towards bad health and early death!

Your subconscious mind is ultimately in charge of all the [non-conscious] and vital life supporting factors that keep us alive every second for 80+ years. Billions of unseen vital tasks per day....all interconnected and interdependent upon each other, - and all required to be faultless in the extreme.

But...to carry out this hugely complex job - involving unimaginable complexity - with virtual perfection, it cannot afford to be tied down with CONSCIOUS THOUGHT! Thus it is not tasked with that job. That is obviously done by the conscious mind.


Unfortunately, this means the subconscious mind will tend to take the thoughts emotions and words employed by the conscious mind LITERALLY.

 The subconscious has no sense of irony.  It is very SUGGESTIBLE!!
You might not mean it but....If you keep saying - "I wish I was dead", or "I'd be better off dead", or "I hate my life" etc, (or similar self insulting rhetoric), then eventually this type of language, - and accompanying emotions and implied self resentments, can possibly kick-start a very negative response from your auto-pilot best friend!!

So avoid this type of harmful self talk!

The big danger here is that each time one suffers a crisis or a big negative emotional event, (including scary imagined events) the bloodstream is flooded with potentially harmful "stress hormones" and associated biological events that gear up the body for either FIGHT or FLIGHT....unfortunately putting the immune system into a state of paralysis or suppression for a significant period. Imagine if this stress is prolonged or constant or affecting your life on a daily basis! What has your immune system missed? Will it eventually catch up, - or be overwhelmed with the accumulated workload?

Medical science tells us that we all have cancer cells cropping up on a daily basis, but these are normally controlled and deleted by the immune system. But what if the immune system is suppressed by constant or regular stress?

The good news!

The good news is that your "auto-pilot best friend" may be very SUGGESTIBLE....but this can work in a very positive way too.

In fact the subconscious cannot differentiate between real life, or IMAGINED life situations. (This is evident when you imagine a (potentially) imminent fight or conflict with someone in your minds eye, and you instantly notice your heart race and your blood pressure going through the roof!)

So if you deeply imagine something very positive, you can create a situation of healing. Positive self affirmations can also help to create a better internal environment, and better health in general.

Optimism and belief can inspire football teams, tennis champions, or armies to win against the odds. It has biochemical effect.

Ideally, an alternative cancer treatment is a TOTALITY treatment. This means addressing ALL logical causes and likely solutions that can endow the body with what it desperately needs to reverse the cancer process and heal the body. Not just one substance or treatment, but a protocol of measures that attack the problem from all sides…..but in a non-toxic way! The fact that many have been successful, means almost everyone possibly could be, – IF medical science switched its focus toward perfecting such protocols, and then adapting things to suit each patients’ unique situation, genetics, and potential deficiencies.

The other key aspect is to heal the mind, which can (at times) get into self-hating or life-hating mode….and thus create a downward spiral for health. We program our minds daily…without realising it. Eventually this may spawn disease.

When I got diagnosed with bowel cancer in early 2010, I needed an operation to save my life. But following that I refused 6 months of chemo, and followed the Bill Henderson protocol best I could. But I also improvised over 14 months with many other things, such as essiac, curcumin, pau d’ arco, bitter apricot kernels, etc etc. I decided to be relentless and take no prisoners! I THINK MY BODY GOT THE MESSAGE THAT I WANTED TO LIVE!! Even if I have implied otherwise over the years. Make sure you are on good terms with your inner self!

A ground-breaking new book by Dr Lissa Rankin may interest you if you want to learn more about this topic in greater depth, and it may be key to MAXIMISING your chances of beating cancer.

"The cancer patient cured by a broken radiotherapy machine and the paralysed man who walked again after visiting Lourdes: New book shows incredible influence of the mind over the body"  

Full story: Daily Mail

Dr Lissa Rankin's Mind Over Medicine: Scientific Proof That You Can Heal Yourself draws on scientific studies to prove the power of self-healing.

It is often said that the mind has a huge amount of power over the body and a new book has set out to prove just how powerful it can be.

'I refused to trust anything I couldn’t prove with a randomised, controlled clinical trial.
'Plus, having been raised by my father, a very conventional physician who made fun of anything New Age, I was as hard-nosed, closed-minded, and cynical as they come.'
However, as her experience of medicine grew, her views started to change.
She wrote: 'Even the most closed-minded doctors witness patients who get well when, by every scientific rationale, they shouldn’t.

She went on: 'But what if we’ve got it all wrong? What if, by denying the fact that the body is naturally wired to heal itself and the mind operates this self-healing system, we’re actually sabotaging ourselves?

In Mind Over Medicine: Scientific Proof That You Can Heal Yourself, Dr Lissa Rankin lays out many astonishing examples of how the mind can affect the body.

After 10 years of dedicated professional research, Dr Rankin presents this ground-breaking information that turns traditional medical thinking about cancer and disease on its head. In a world where we are all sceptical about what we read in regard to cancer, it is refreshing to have a highly qualified and respected researcher present such valuable information from around the globe.

Do you want to wait 50 years for randomised clinical trials confirming without doubt that this works, or will you accept the overwhelming evidence presented in this book and others?

For example, she cites one study in which a group of patients were given a saline solution which they were told could be chemotherapy. Despite the fact it was only salt water, 30 per cent of the patients lost their hair!

This is how powerfully the mind can affect the body in regard to health and disease...and possible recovery. In other words, the MIND is an important piece of the healing jigsaw.

As she explains, the body is essentially made of vibrating energy and is powered by electricity at the cellular level. Positive energy is also created by positive warm feelings of love and acceptance, we even feel that  from a pet cat or dog or horse. Powering up your inner system towards self love and acceptance cannot fail to help boost you healing systems to promote greater chances of healing success.

I believe that when it comes to healing modalities, all roads lead to Rome. In other words, each intelligent step will help promote the effectiveness of other measure you take. The mind may play the greatest role.

Epigenetics, and the placebo effect explained...

by Bruce Lipton Ph.D

Your health is not at the mercy of your genes! Far from it. It is possible to influence all manner of issues relating to the health of your body, and healing.....as explained here.

Finally, going slightly off topic, there is this amazing concept that shows that illnesses, such as chronic debilitating back pain, are created by the mind....and when you realise this, you can terminate the pain for good, as demonstrated by these cases. The theory is that the mind creates such problems to distract you from other major stressful situations you fear or issues you cannot face.

Watch how Dr John Sarno makes peoples years of pain and suffering totally disappear!
