Cancer Prevention and Treatment

We all have cancer cells in our bodies. Some of us have a family history of cancer. But genetic research shows that we can switch on or off family propensities for health issues. My job is to give people the tools to switch those tendencies off. These tools, used hand in hand with conventional cancer treatments, can produce amazing results.

First: create an environment in your body hostile to cancer cells. Viruses, bacteria, parasites, fungus, yeast, and cancer cells thrive in an acidic environment. Acid breaks down healthy tissue. It’s easy to determine how acidic your body is. Go to a drug store and get some PH strips. There are strips to test saliva and urine. Get one of each. Everything we eat makes our bodies acidic, except for vegetables. So if half your diet is a variety of vegetables your body should be alkaline. Vegetables activate the second phase of liver detoxification, pushing toxins out of your body. Vegetables help you heal at an accelerated rate, and even break down scar tissue. Eat Organic so you aren’t ingesting carcinogenic chemicals. A wide variety of vegetables three times per day optimizes cancer prevention and healing.

Like vegetables, Organic protein helps us heal. Protein is necessary to regenerate tissues. The cells in our bodies are constantly being built up and broken down. So aside from a few brain cells, you’re literally a new person in a year’s time. But degenerative conditions, including cancer, break down tissue faster than we can regenerate it. So eating organic protein three times per day is an essential component of your repair process.    

What are foods that promote cancer?

Non-Organic animal products contain huge amounts of artificial female hormones. Doctors no longer prescribe these hormones to woman after menopause because they were proven to cause cancer. But they’re still feeding them to food-producing animals. Hormones cause estrogen dominance to make animals fatter, make cows produce more milk and chickens produce more eggs. Since toxins are stored in the fats cells, when we eat meat, dairy or eggs we get a concentrated amount of whatever toxins the animals have ingested, including cancer-causing chemicals and hormones.  

When people can keep their immune and digestive systems strong they do better with cancer treatments. If you’re eating non-Organic animal protein you’re ingesting up to 52 antibiotics per day. This kills off the positive bacteria in our bodies, our gut flora, essential for our immune and digestive systems. Taking probiotics isn’t enough to repair the damage of ingesting non-Organic animal protein.

What else feeds cancer cells? Sugar, alcohol, and junk food! These are all high on the glycemic index, meaning they’re quickly converted to sugar/glucose in your body. Cancer cells can’t survive without glucose. So if the bulk of your diet is low on the glycemic index, like vegetables, glucose-free, like protein, and you avoid foods that promote high blood sugar, you’re actively preventing or fighting cancer. Corn and wheat can cause wild fluctuations in blood sugar, feeding cancer and initiating food cravings. Some patients that do well with their cancer treatments think they can go back to eating and drinking what helped get them in trouble in the first place. They end up back in cancer treatment.

What Chinese dietary therapy refers to as Damp Foods can create masses such as cysts, fibroids and tumors. Damp foods are oily or greasy foods or foods that cause fat in the body. Dairy products, sugar, alcohol and nut butters are very damp. Limit eggs to a couple days per week. Fruit is also damp and should be minimized. Raw foods are damp because they’re harder to digest. Any food you can make into an oil is damp. You can google ‘damp foods’ for a complete list. Too many damp foods impair digestion and cause nausea.

It’s normal when receiving bad news such as “You have cancer!” to get stressed out and run for the comfort food, which as I’ve just explained feeds cancer cells. The tools I provide, the herbal formulas, and acupuncture help alleviate stress, depression, and food cravings. There are formulas and acupuncture treatments that can reduce tumors, build the immune system, improve digestion, and prevent nausea, fatigue, hair loss, as well as common symptoms of chemo and radiation like dry mouth, leg cramps, and hiccoughs.

If you aren’t breaking down fats, you’re prone to getting masses and tumors. If you aren’t breaking down protein or carbohydrates, or need pancreatic support, your blood sugar will be fluctuating throughout the day causing food or alcohol cravings. I prescribe formulas to enable the body to correct those issues. I give patients delicious recipes so they can enjoy their change in diet. And I troubleshoot. What is working, what isn’t. This way we figure out what works for each individual.

Another powerful tool is Protomorphogens. For centuries the Chinese medicinal dietary therapy included eating the organs or glands of a healthy animal (a Protomorphogen) to repair the same tissue in our bodies. Genetic research has proven this treatment to be effective. T-cells are responsible for destroying dead tissue to move it out of the body. Any degenerative condition, including cancer, can create too much dead tissue for the T-cells to keep up with. So they switch their strategy from defensive to offensive and start attacking healthy tissue: the original source of what they’re fighting to irradiate. But T-cells will target Protomorphogens and subsequently leave healthy tissue alone. The Protomorphogen then triggers the healing gene sequence to repair the DNA of the organ or tissue.                 

“You have Cancer” is one of the most terrifying things your doctor can tell you. Incorporating the tools I’ve discussed, in conjunction with conventional medical treatment, can make all the difference. It is possible to minimize or alleviate side effects of treatment, accelerate your healing, and help prevent reoccurrence. With this protocol I’ve seen patients who were informed they were ready for hospice turn their health around and lead comfortable, active, lives during treatment, recover at rates that amaze their oncologist, and stay healthy afterwards.
