The Powerful Disease-Fighting Benefits of Guinea Hen Weed Tea
Guinea Hen Weed Tea is an antimicrobial and immunostimulant making it a doubly powerful disease-fighting herbal tea. Often known as anamu by natives in its indigenous Amazon homeland, this super plant has been used for medicinal, herbal and culinary purposes with astounding results. Studies completed worldwide have found this unique plant contains properties that combat a variety of infections and diseases.
Guinea Hen Weed, or anamu, is composed of a variety of antioxidants such as tannins and flavonoids, naturally occurring steroids found in plant cell membranes, phytochemicals and sulfuric compounds. The blend of these potent elements has never been seen in any plant known to man. Research indicates that when combined in a plant like Guinea Hen Weed, these ingredients act as an antimicrobial, antiviral, antifungal and antibacterial. As you can imagine, this phenomenal plant has huge potential in a medical context for treating or supporting existing treatments of many diseases that threaten the human population.
Lets start with one of the biggest diseases plaguing our modern world. While there are many known and suspected causes of cancer, the proliferation of free radicals and build up of inflammation are two of the worst culprits. Guinea Hen Weed may be a great preventative solution as it contains powerful levels of antioxidants. But it goes above and beyond with a combination of the sulfur compounds dibenzyl trisulfide and the phytochemicals astilbin, benzaldehyde and coumarin. In laboratory tests, these prove to have anti-cancerous effects. Additionally, the compounds in Guinea Hen Weed do not attack healthy cells. In a plant-screening done by the University of Illinois at Chicago, Guinea Hen Weed was named one of 34 plants that have active anti-cancer elements.
Guinea Hen Weed has even more amazing benefits. Clinical trials show that Guinea Hen Weed is a broad spectrum antimicrobial, working to fight off many strains of viruses, fungus, yeast and bacteria. Tests have shown promising results for using the plant to support people with hepatitis C, E. coli, staph infections, bovina diarrhea, pseudomonas and shingella, as well as a mycobacterium tuberculosis. Guinea Hen Weed is a cyolooxygenase-1 inhibitor that helps support joint pain. Plus, Guinea Hen Weed may have benefits for diabetics.
The next time youre in the mood for a cup of tea, make it Zokivas all-new 100% natural Guinea Hen Weed Tea. With disease-fighting properties that are second-to-none, youll be drinking to your health and vitality for a long lifetime to come.
Guinea Hen Weed [Anamu]: A Powerful Jamaican Herb to prevent & reverse Cancer.
GUINEA HEN weed, known to South Americans as anamu, is a herb that is indigenous to induce abortion in the Amazon rainforest and the tropical areas of the Caribbean, Central and South America and Africa. Its botanical name is Petiveria alliacea. In Jamaica, it has several names – guinea hen weed, guinea hen leaf, garlic weed or gully root.
Anamu has a long history of use in herbal medicine in all the countries where it grows. Herbalists and natural health practitioners have traditionally used anamu for a wide variety of conditions including arthritis, digestive disorders, infections, diabetes, cancer, pain relief and even to induce abortions.
Over the past quarter of a century, however, modern scientific research has studied anamu intensively and many biologically active compounds have been discovered in the plant: flavonoids, triterpenes, steroids, and sulfur compounds. The research published on anamu now validates many of the historical uses of this herb.
Interestingly, the researchers found that of the 20 compounds isolated from the plant – several of which had never been identified in nature before – some were similar to compounds found in garlic, a plant known to have medicinal properties.
Anamu kills cancer cells – Laboratory investigations show that anamu retards the growth of several strains of cancer and leukemia cells. In a plant screening programme performed at the University of Illinois at Chicago, more than 1,400 plant extracts were evaluated for the prevention and treatment of cancer. Anamu was one of only 34 plants identified with active properties specifically against cancer.
How does anamu work against cancer?
Several phytochemicals in anamu like astilbin and dibenzyl trisulphide have been documented to directly kill cancer cells. Research showed further that the compounds in anamu were able to differentiate between normal cells and cancer cells, killing only the cancerous cells. In addition, other substances in the herb stimulate the body’s natural defences as described below.
Anamu stimulates the immune system – Anamu has also been verified to have immunostimulant properties. It stimulates the immune system to increase its production of lymphocytes and natural killer cells – powerful disease-destroying cells. At the same time, it increases the production of interferon and interleukins – substances naturally produced by the immune system in fighting cancers and infections.
Anamu fights infections – It demonstrates broad spectrum antimicrobial properties against numerous bacteria, viruses, fungi and yeast. Compounds in anamu directly kill and or inhibits the growth of these germs. Interestingly, many alternative medicine practitioners believe that infection plays a major role in many cancers. Anamu is widely used in folk medicine for treating infections.
Anamu relieves pain – Its traditional use as a remedy for arthritis and rheumatism has been validated by clinical research that confirms its pain relieving and anti-inflammatory effect. Researchers in Sweden demonstrated its COX-1 inhibitory properties (cyclooxogenase-1 inhibitors are a new class of popular and profitable arthritis drugs). Anamu extracts have been found to relieve pain and inflammation even when applied topically to the skin.
Anamu lowers blood sugar – While anamu has not been widely researched for diabetes, it had been documented to lower blood sugar levels by more than 60 per cent in laboratory animals. This reflects herbal medical practice in Cuba where anamu has been used as an aid for diabetes for many years.
Contradictions to anamu
Anamu has been found to cause contractions of the uterus that can lead to abortions and miscarriages. As such, it should not be used by pregnant women.
Anamu contains a low concentration of a blood thinner called coumadin. People with any bleeding disorder like hemophilia or who are on blood thinning medication should consult their health-care provider before using anamu.
Directions for use
I recommend using organically grown anamu herb, free of insecticides, herbicides and other pollution.
One heaping tablespoonful of the whole powdered anamu plant is diffused in one litre of hot water. The resulting tea is drunk preferably on an empty stomach. An average dosage is four ounces (about half a cup) twice daily.
I myself was introduced to anamu by a Jamaican oncologist, (a doctor specialising in treating cancer), who had seen good results in some of her patients who used this herb. I thank her for her generosity in sharing the information. I had also heard impressive stories from Jamaican men with prostate cancer who had benefited from its use.
After doing my own research, I now use it regularly in my practice and find it to be a useful, safe, inexpensive addition to a cancer-treatment programme, as well as in the treatment of the other conditions listed above.
Reminder and warning
Many persons are desperately looking for a quick fix – a magic bullet that will miraculously cure their illness. The reality is that there is no quick fix. Like so many useful herbs, anamu will give best results when combined with optimal nutrition, nutritional supplements, exercise, detoxification, stress management and adequate restful sleep.
It must be a part of a programme of healthy lifestyles. It may also be used along with conventional medicines without disturbing their effects. If you have a serious medical condition, do not self medicate without the assistance and guidance of a qualified health practitioner.

Imagine a Jamaican being offered US$100 million for a patent, in relation to cancer research done on a local plant. Imagine further that this offer has been rejected because the earning potential for this breakthrough is estimated to be even greater than that which has been offered.
That is not just a hypothetical scenario anymore. Dr. Lawrence Williams, research consultant with the Scientific Research Council, and a Jamaican partner living in the United States are the holders of that patent and they reportedly received that lucrative offer from a major drug company in the United States.
Dr. Williams has been conducting research for years on a compound from the Guinea Hen Weed (scientific name: Petiveria alliacea), which has reached the patent stage. Hes confident that the drug he is developing will be effective against a range of cancers. It works on 12 kinds of cancers so far; two or three types of breast cancer, neuroblastoma, lung, melanoma, adenocarcinoma, prostate etc.
Dr. Williams was speaking recently in an exclusive interview with RJRs Earl Moxam.

There is absolutely no doubt that consuming healthy foods can boost the overall health of the body. It is also true to say that proper intake of dietary provides a strong foundation for the body to be healthy. The kind of food that you eat can either nourish or support your body or cause a potential damage or rather long term negative effect to the body.
As a matter of factor this is the main reason why many people have decided to go organic, at least when it comes to buying vegetables and fruits.
Consuming more of these powerful and nutritional foods could reduce the risk of developing cancer. Mind you that the rate of cancer incidences have greatly increased and are extremely high. Studies show that 1 out of 3 will have some form of this terminal disease in their life.
Cancer is a killer disease and therefore we should do what we can, even if it means eating cancer-fighting foods on daily basis.
It is important therefore that you follow to the letter the following 5 organic foods that have cancer fighting benefits.
1. Drink organic green tea:
One of the most well researched foods is a drink that can actually decreases the risk of getting cancer. Green tea has been used for over a century ago and possesses a number of cancer fighting properties. Green teas contains a several anti-oxidants which prevent damage of the cells, hence it is protective against, breast cancer, bladder cancer, and also skin cancer.
Studies have shown that taking 3 cups of green tea a day can reduce the chances of getting breast cancer in ladies. Green tea also controls the sugar levels in the body. Therefore it is the best food to ward of cancer.
2. Eating a daily dose of wild organic blueberries:
It is yet another super food that can help you ward off cancer. It contains anthocyanins- antioxidants that reduce the risk of getting colon cancer.
It also reduce the risk of getting metastases- a form of deadly cancer. Unlike other fruits, blueberries do not affect the sugar level in the body because they contain glycemix index. Taking a cup every day can help your body prevent cancer.
The power food Mushrooms contain various compounds that assist the body to fight off cancer. Maitake, shitake and reishi are all types of mushrooms that apart from being inexpensive can greatly ward off cancer. Eat the garlic and even raw garlic. Garlic is very essential food that helps the body to fight cancer. It contains very powerful phytonutrient known as Allicin that has anti-cancer properties. Allicin has proven to destroy tumor cells completely, it also has a strong anti-oxidant effect in the body i.e. protects against the hazardous free radicals that cause cancer. Eat the cruciferous vegetables
5. Cruciferous vegetables:
Cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, kale, Bok-Choy and Brussels sprouts are known to decrease the risk of getting cancer- especially breast cancer. These vegetables contain di-indolyl-methane and also indole-3-carbinol- compounds that are known to help the body to fight against cancer and other diseases too.
There are many other foods that are not listed above. However these would help reduce the cancer risk as well Inform your neighbor and friends about Ehic and all the benefits that come with its application.
Every day more people are diagnosed with serious diseases, and many chronic illnesses are reaching epidemic proportions. The size of the pharmaceutical industry is growing, which means we are taking more and more medication, but are actually getting sicker. Clearly, something is not adding up.
For 2,200 years until 1805, medicine was practiced exclusively according to the ancient Greek physician Hippocrates (460-377 BC), the founding father of natural medicine. He taught that the first and foremost principle of medicine must be to respect natures healing forces, which inhabit each living organism. Hippocrates considered illness a natural phenomenon that forced people to discover the imbalances in their health. He strongly believed in good food and related the course of any ailment to poor nutrition and bad eating habits. He stressed, “Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food”
Meanwhile, we are observing a renaissance, a revival of herbal medicine. Scientists are discovering that not only herbs, but also foods contain synergistic groups of ingredients that provide medicinal benefit. These groups are referred to as “secondary ingredients” because previously we believed they were of lesser value. Their action could not be explained, though considered to be important. These ingredients include, among many others, carotenoids, flavonoids, phenols, estrogens and enzyme inhibitors. The Europeans have coined a fancy name for them, phytochemicals, which means “plant-based.”
Almost daily we hear of new miraculous benefits of one of those phytochemicals discovered in herbs and food. Pigments or colouring agents are now known to be of benefit in the treatment of cancer, especially lycopene from tomatoes and beets. Now we truly can relate to what Hippocrates proclaimed: Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food.

Cancer is not a disease we get because we are aging. It is a disease we get because our bodies cant handle the toxic burden it has been forced to endure.
You are Healthier than you think.
Prevent & reverse Cancer Naturally using Graviola (or Soursop). The leaves, stem, bark, and fruit of this evergreen tree contain a unique mix of chemicals called Annonaceous acetogenins. And three separate research teams found these chemicals have powerful anti-tumor properties. What’s more, these chemicals have selective toxicity against cancer cells. That means they fight cancer without harming healthy cells. And, to top it all off, they can do so at very low doses.
The first study came in 1976 during a plant-screening program by the National Cancer Institute. In this study, the researchers found that graviola leaves and stems showed toxicity against cancer cells. They did in vitro tests to determine what types of cancer the specific acetogenins would fight. They found that it was toxic to lung carcinoma, human breast, prostate adenocarcinoma, pancreatic carcinoma, colon adenocarcinoma, liver cancer cell lines, human lymphoma, and MDR human breast adenocarcinoma. That’s pretty impressive.
Most students of natural health are familiar with Dr. Warburg’s name, as he won the Nobel Prize for medicine in 1931 for his discovery that cancer cells have a fundamentally different energy metabolism compared to healthy cells.
But they don’t know he was a personal friend of German physicists Albert Einstein and Max Planck, and was awarded a second Nobel Prize in 1944 but Hitler prevented him from going to Stockholm to pick it up. He is considered by most experts to be the greatest biochemist of the 20th century.
Dr. Warburg discovered that in the presence of oxygen, cancer cells overproduce lactic acid. This is known as The Warburg Effect. A cell can produce energy in two ways: aerobically, in the mitochondria, or anaerobically, in the cytoplasm, which generates lactic acid a toxic byproduct.
The former is far more efficient, capable of generating 32 times more adenosine triphosphate (ATP) than anaerobic energy generation. Dr. Warburg concluded that the prime cause of cancer was reversion of energy generation from aerobic energy generation to anaerobic fermentation.
How Does Stress Promote the Spread of Cancer?
Cancer cells typically spread to other areas of the body either via your blood vessels, or through your lymphatic system. Stress hormones affect both of these pathways or channels. Here they were trying to determine how stress hormones affect the spread of cancer cells through the lymphatic system.
The mechanism they found is related to the way adrenaline activates the sympathetic nervous system (SNS) to increase the rate of lymph formation. Adrenaline also causes physical changes in the lymph vessels, allowing cancer cells to migrate into other body parts at a faster rate.
To prevent & reverse cancer, you must reduce sugar consumption which promotes Candida that cause Cancer as shown in recent studies. Also reducing stress can prevent cortisol that aggravates Cancer.
That’s right — the real culprit behind 3 out of every 4 cancer deaths isn’t cancer at all. No! It’s a syndrome you’ve probably never even heard of — called cachexia (pronounced “ka-kek-see-ah”).
And if you or someone you love is battling cancer…
You can’t afford to ignore it!
And you definitely can’t afford to ignore what could very well be the only natural compound that stops this stealth killer in its tracks. I’ll tell you more about this life-saving therapy in just a moment. But first, let me tell you just how deadly an enemy cachexia is…
The problem is, tumor cells need even more energy than regular cells, so they gobble up the little nutrition your body has while the rest of your cells starve…And while the tumor is getting strong and healthy, you’re wasting away — until your body just gives up on you.
In other words, as horrible as it sounds, most cancer patients die feeding their own tumors!
For a long time, most of the experts assumed that it only happened in the final stages of the disease. But Dr. Gold discovered that cachexia actually begins the moment the very first cancer cell appears.
He also pinpointed a specific enzyme in the liver responsible for setting off cachexia. Dr. Gold knew if he could shut down that enzyme, it would turn the tables on the stealth enemy, and stop cancer in its tracks.
The Rocket Fuel Secret
giving terminal patients a second chance at life…
Much to his surprise, the answer was an unbelievably cheap substance called HZ. But as cheap as it is, HZ is one of the most powerful natural ingredients on the planet. (In fact, it’s one of the ingredients used in rocket fuel).
Since he discovered it, dozens of studies have been done on HZ. In fact, I just did a quick count of the ones I have on my desk right now and came up with 28! And these are studies from some of the top cancer research facilities in the world, including Petrov Research Institute of Oncology in St. Petersburg, Russia and Harbor-UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles.
All of them were published in prestigious peer-reviewed medical journals. And EVERY SINGLE ONE showed that not only is HZ completely safe…but it may very well be the only treatment on earth that gives terminal cancer patients a second chance at life.
Time and time again, the most respected cancer researchers around the world found that HZ brings cachexia to a screeching halt. The researchers were stunned when their controlled clinical trials showed nearly…
6 out of every 10 previously unresponsive patients — ones diagnosed as “factually terminal” — suddenly STOPPED showing signs of cachexia!
In other words, patients who’d been on the brink of death got their appetites back…regained the muscle and fat they’d been starved of…and started LIVING again.
HZ is truly a miracle when it comes to cachexia…but even if you’ve nipped this deadly enemy in the bud, you’ve STILL got cancer to contend with.
And THAT’S what makes the HZ secret even more remarkable! Not only does it wipe out cachexia…Studies show that HZ:
Takes control of cancer and keeps it from spreading
Halts — even reverses — tumor growth. In fact, it…
Shrinks tumors up to HALF their original size
And it doesn’t subject you to any of the toxic side effects caused by chemo and radiation.
But in a terrifying twist that may shake you to your very core, the most powerful cancer agency in the world has spent the last 30 years frantically trying to keep a lid on this breakthrough therapy. You won’t believe it when you hear about the underhanded tactics they resorted to…
But what makes this coverup even more despicable is the fact that it’s not the first time it’s happened!
Are you willing to die for
their DEADLY SIN?
I’ve spent the better part of my career researching what Nature has to offer in terms of cancer treatments. And the disturbing truth is, when it comes to natural cancer breakthroughs, the mainstream (including some of the most prominent health organizations all over the world) has a habit of botching studies, skewing results, and hiding the TRUTH about Nature’s cancer-curing potential from the people who need it most.
Think I must be mistaken? I wish I was. But facts are facts…like the ones that emerged from a 2006 survey sent by the Union of Concerned Scientists to nearly 6,000 FDA scientists. Those scientists that responded to the survey (about 1,000 of them) made some pretty shocking admissions…
Almost 20 percent admitted that they had been “asked explicitly by FDA decision makers to provide incomplete, inaccurate, or misleading information to the public, regulated industry, media, or elected/senior government officials.”
Less than 50 percent agreed that the FDA “routinely provides complete and accurate information to the public.”
47 percent admitted of being aware of instances “where commercial interests have inappropriately induced or attempted to induce the reversal, withdrawal or modification of FDA determinations or actions.”
That last admission gets right to the heart of the matter…It all boils down to one of the deadly sins — GREED.
The FDA will sell you out and pocket the change!
You see, natural therapies can’t be patented. And treatments that aren’t patented can’t make scads of money for drug companies — or the FDA, which gets a hefty paycheck every time it approves one of them.
So when a natural substance shows promise against cancer, the drug companies invest all their time and money into developing a synthetic version of it that CAN be patented. More often than not, it JUST DOESN’T WORK. But letting the public know that there’s a cheap, natural cure would mean missing out on cold, hard cash. So what happens to all those study results?
The very same thing that happened to Dr. Gold’s HZ miracle: The Big Pharma bigwigs and the government powers-that-be skew the results and sway public opinion away from the natural cure.
Half truths, misleading data, manipulated results…For all the underhanded tactics the mainstream uses against natural remedies, these miracles may as well be under lock and key.
Yes, somewhere along the line medicine has gone horribly wrong. But I became a doctor to HELP people. And the oath I took didn’t make a single mention of money or profits.
Which is why it’s become my personal mission to pick as many of those locks as I possibly can.
EXILED CANCER CURES
from the most brilliant minds in medicine!
Believe me, it hasn’t been an easy process. A lot of these things — like Dr. Gold’s HZ miracle — have been buried for decades. And many of the scientists and doctors behind them were more than a little reluctant to talk to me about their discoveries. And who can blame them?
But, in the end, most of them agreed to share the details about their cancer breakthroughs with me. Why? Because unlike the drug companies and the FDA, these doctors don’t have dollar signs in their eyes. Their mission is the same as mine — to save lives.
And the things these brilliant minds have shared with me could very well mean the difference between life and death for you or someone you love.
In order for these breakthroughs to reach as many people as possible — to save as many lives as possible — I knew they needed to be put together all in one place. A single resource…The ONLY resource anyone would ever need. So that’s exactly what I’ve done.
Everything I’ve dug up…all the natural cancer miracles I’ve learned about…I put them all into a cancer survival guide that I titled Tomorrow’s Cancer Cures TODAY.
25 hidden therapies from
around the world
Dr. Gold’s HZ miracle is — by far — one of the most exciting natural therapies I’ve come across in my research. And in Tomorrow’s Cancer Cures TODAY, I’ll tell you exactly how to get it. And I’ll also fill you in on the cover up that nearly kept it out of your hands for good.
But as promising as HZ is, I’ve also treated enough patients over the years to know that nothing works for every single person. That’s why I’m so grateful to all the doctors, scientists, and researchers who shared their cutting-edge discoveries with me…so that I could share them with YOU.
Most of these cures have been pushed so far underground that Tomorrow’s Cancer Cures TODAY is likely the only place you’ll ever hear about them. Some of the miracles that were almost buried forever include…
The acid-squelching combo that helps your blood repel cancer toxins…(It’s touted by many alternative doctors as one of the most effective treatments for bone, brain, and other fast-growing cancers.) Chapter 6
The “$3 cure” that neutralizes tumors by killing the fungus that keeps them glued together…(You probably have this little-known miracle in your kitchen pantry RIGHT NOW.) Chapter 11
The vitamin cancer-killer hiding inside apricot kernels…(Research shows it has the potential to more than double the life span of cancer victims!) Chapter 13
The cancer-obliterating miracle mushroom that’s nearly 50 times more powerful than one of the strongest medicinal mushrooms on the planet…(It’s nearly extinct, but I’ll tell you the ONE source where you can get it.) Chapter 14
The personalized, cutting-edge therapy that switches on your body’s own cancer-fighting genes…(The FDA tried to shut it down for years — but the overwhelming positive results were TOO STRONG to deny.) Chapter 17
The herbal tea curing cancer in patients with “inoperable” cases…(People who were told they had just weeks to live drank this simple tea — and lived nearly 20 more CANCER-FREE years!) Chapter 19
The plant that’s 250 times tougher on cancer than one of the most potent chemo drugs — without the body-ravaging side effects…(This is one of the ONLY treatments on Earth that’s shown any effectiveness against multi-drug resistant cancers.) Chapter 23
Every one of these cancer cures is backed by decades — even centuries — of use, not to mention solid clinical evidence.
Treating and overcoming a serious illness such as cancer requires more than just managing symptoms. It affects the entire personsense of self, mental health, confidence, faith/spirituality, emotions, ability to do daily activities and relationship with others. Many are unable to express their feeling or cope with the overwhelming burden a cancer diagnosis brings.
Cancer is not one diseaseits hundreds of different diseases, Augusta Health Cancer Program director Brad Johnson said. Each is unique, and each patient is unique. There is a great deal of stress and anxiety, both about surviving the disease and treatment, and about maintaining day-to-day concerns such as paying the bills while in treatment. We use a Distress Screen with our patients to determine their psychosocial stressors and connect them with the programs they need. The screen evaluates the physical (are you sleeping?); the practical (do you need transportation?) and the emotional (what is your anxiety level and how are you coping?).
Engaging in artistic activities, exploring creative expression, as well as integrative medicine such as massage, meditation and fitness, can have a powerful impact on enhancing the healing process. Exposure to music and participation in art projects during a patients medical treatment promotes multiple aspects of wellness and coping. Integrative and Complementary Care focuses on lifestyle changes that also optimize health and well-being. Complementary medical therapies from other healing traditions like yoga, massage therapy and mindfulness/meditation are also offered where sound evidence of effectiveness and safety exist.
When you have cancer, you feel like just about everything in life is outside of your control, and you start searching for a sense of normalcy, Johnson said. You also start to re-prioritize your life and many patients realize that they need to start caring for themselves; diet, exercise, stress reduction. These programs provide healthy ways to deal with stress, and a path to a healthy lifestyle during treatment and when treatment is complete.
Current programs that the Cancer Center hopes to expand with additional funding and volunteers:
Art and Soul Classes Patients participate in creative art projects, drumming/musical tones, painting, drawing and mixed-media expression that will relax, inspire and strengthen their artistic spirit and serve as a relaxing, meditative new practice. The drumming/musical tones classes have started, but the painting, drawing and mixed-media expression classes are in need of funding and volunteers to lead them.
Massage Therapy Therapeutic massage involves manipulation, rubbing and kneading of the bodys muscle and soft tissue. Some recent studies show massage can decrease stress, anxiety, depression, and pain, and increase alertness. There is also some evidence that massage stimulates nerves, increases blood flow and the supply of oxygen to cells, and helps circulation of the lymph system. Again, funding and volunteers are needed to expand this program.
Spirituality and Prayer is generally described as an awareness of something greater than the individual self and is usually expressed through rituals and/or prayer. The psychological benefits of prayer may include reduction of stress and anxiety, promotion of a more positive outlook, and the strengthening of the will to live. Funding would help expand this program.
Relaxation, Meditation and Mindfulness teaching is a mind-body process to offer participants tools for finding peace and balance through visualization and using concentration or reflection to relax the body, sooth the spirit and calm the mind. Funding would help expand this program.
Writing/Journaling- Open to cancer survivors and the friends and family, the Writing Community provides an opportunity to honor life experiences through writing. Only requires a willingness to write and to support other writers.
Energy-field Therapies- Reiki is a form of hands-on treatment used to manipulate energy fields within and around the body while Healing Therapeutic Touch is a relaxing, nurturing, hands-off non-invasive energy therapy. Both may assist in balancing your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Reiki requires a trained leader.
Most Disease Is Rooted in Mitochondrial Dysfunction
Cancer is not the only outcome when mitochondrial respiration goes awry. This kind of dysfunction also plays a role in neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). It’s also at play in seizure disorders, and in diabetes, obesity, hypertension and hypercholesterolemia. Most of the major diseases we’re currently treating with harsh and toxic drugs can potentially be solved with proper nutritional intervention that addresses your choice of cellular fuels.
How exactly do you do that? According to Seyfried, in order to achieve nutritional ketosis, you need to reduce net carbohydrates (total carbs minus fiber) to less than 100 grams, probably less than 50 grams. I have a slightly different view on this, which I’ll expound on in the next section.
You also need to reduce your amino acid content. Glutamine is the most common amino acid in proteins, and besides glucose, cancer cells can use glutamine for energy and growth as well. The combination of both glucose and glutamine creates a really “supercharged system,” Seyfried notes.
In order to lower glutamine, you have to eat less protein. Also, there’s a threshold for amino acids, above which you will simply stimulate the mTOR pathway, which in conjunction with insulin may wield a more powerful influence on mitochondrial dysfunction and mitochondrial biogenesis than insulin alone.
How to Assess the Health of Your Mitochondria
How can you assess the health of your mitochondria? There are a couple of ways of doing this. Seyfried has published a paper on the glucose ketone index calculator3 (GKIC) in an open access journal, which can be accessed by anyone. You can use that calculator to assess the health and vitality of your mitochondria.
The GKIC looks at your glucose to ketone ratio. Ketones must be measured by blood, not urine, and your glucose must be entered in mmol, not in milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL). “When you have a glucose ratio of 1.0 or below, you know your mitochondria are in a very healthy zone,” Seyfried says.
Now, getting down to a 1.0 is quite difficult. I’m typically between 2 and 3, and my diet is about 80 percent healthy fats with minimal net carbs. You may need to do a complete fast in order to get that low. However, you don’t need to remain in that ultra-low zone for very long. On the other hand, if you have cancer, you’ll want to hit that mark as much as possible.
“You do a water fast for about three to four days, then you can take some exogenous ketones, and you can get your blood sugars way down,” Seyfried says. “To prevent cancer, you don’t have to stay there [longer than] four or five days every six months or something like this. It’s just a guide,” Seyfried says.
“Some people can get into these zones very quickly and very easily. Other people really struggle. All of this is a biomarker gauge. We’ve done some interesting linear regression analysis on survivability of mice with cancer using the GKIs, the independent variable, the glucose-ketone index.
There definitely is statistical relationship on how long you can keep your GKI [and] how long you can survive with a very aggressive cancer. Clearly, it’s just one biomarker system that allows individuals to help battle their own cancer.”
Therapeutic Ketosis Made Simpler With a Nutrient Tracker
That strategy will likely be too extreme for most folks, unless you’re faced with death or otherwise highly motivated. Rather than doing lengthy water fasting, I believe a more user-friendly strategy would be to restrict your net carbs below 50 grams per day and your protein to below 1 gram per kilogram of lean body mass. Most people eat a lot more net carbs and protein than that.
To make sure you’re actually meeting these targets you need an analytical tool to do a detailed nutritional analysis of what you’re eating. Otherwise, you really don’t know how much fat, carbs and protein you’re getting. This was my motivation for working with the developer of www.Cronometer.com/mercola, an online nutrient tracker, to create a Mercola version of the software programmed specifically for nutritional ketosis.
You can sign up and use Cronometer.com/Mercola for free. This software will make all the calculations for you, based on the parameters you enter, such as your height, weight, body fat percentage and waist circumference. You can also enter and track various biomarkers, such as fasting glucose, which is an essential measurement.
You really must keep tabs on your fasting blood sugar. Ideally, you would measure it twice a day; first thing in the morning and right before you go to bed. You want to get your blood sugar below 70 mg/dL, ideally somewhere around 60.
If your fasting blood sugar is significantly higher in the morning than in the afternoon, it’s likely due to glucogenesis, which is a sign you’re not getting enough protein. You need a certain amount of amino acids or else your body will start to metabolize lean body tissue to generate them. In that process, the excess gets shuttled to your liver, which is what generates the extra glucose (hence the elevated reading in the absence of food).
How successful ? EBC46, injected directly into the tumor, can kill it in just 48 hours.

Blushwood berries are the fruit of the blushwood tree, which is known to grow in only one region of the world: the rainforests of Far North Queensland, Australia.
These tropical trees are not found anywhere else on the globe, but grow in abundance near Australias northeastern tip.
These particular trees need very niche conditions to thriveconditions which can only be found in specific portions of Far North Queensland, Australia.
Considering their usefulness as proven by the latest cancer research published in PLOS One, some are wondering if they could be grown in a greenhouse environment, so that people all over the world could benefit from their cancer-killing properties.
An amazing phytonutrient offers you a new natural weapon in the fight against cancer.
Its called sulforaphane, one of the main phytonutrients in broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables. Researchers are hailing it as a breakthrough that offers real hope for preventing and defeating cancer.
A new research study has shown for the first time how sulforaphane can selectively target and kill cancer cells. At the same time, it leaves healthy cells alone. The findings are breakthrough for the potential use of sulforaphane in cancer prevention and treatment.
“bitter melon,” is a favorite of the Japanese population of Okinawa, where people live longer (and have less cancer) than anywhere else on the planet. Many people believe bitter melon is one of the reasons.
Its Juice Is Deadly to Cancer Cells
Even diluted, the juice of bitter melon is able to kill nearly 100% of the cancer cells it comes in contact with. This means it is more lethal than most chemo drugs!
It does this by literally starving cancer cells of the blood sugar (glucose) they need to survive. (Glucose, you see, is like fertilizer to tumors.)
Because of its ability to lower blood sugar, bitter melon also is excellent for people with diabetes, pre-diabetes and metabolic syndrome.
Health Benefits of Endive
All endive varieties are an excellent source of vitamins A, B, C and K, as well as calcium, copper, iron, manganese, potassium and zinc. Endive is low in calories and fat, and has a high fiber content. A 3.5-ounce portion (100 grams) of endive, which contains just 17 calories, provides:3,4
192 percent of your recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for vitamin K, which is important for balanced blood coagulation
72 percent of your RDA for vitamin A, which is necessary to maintain healthy mucus membranes and skin, and may help protect against lung cancer5
36 percent of your RDA for folate (vitamin B9), which works together with endives other B vitamins thiamin (B1), niacin (B3), pantothenic acid (B5) and pyridoxine (B6) to ensure the healthy metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and proteins to enable you to remain energized throughout the day
18 percent of your RDA for manganese, which assists in the formation of your blood-clotting factors, bones, connective tissues and sex hormones, as well as brain and nerve function
Endive contains a substance called intybin, which is not only responsible for the bitter taste of its leaves, but also is thought to be a mild appetite stimulant and digestive aid. Due to its high fiber content, when consumed in large amounts, Belgian endive can act as a diuretic and laxative. Kaempferol, a flavonoid found in many fruits and vegetables, including endive, has been shown to reduce your risk of ovarian cancer.
Kaempferol naturally inhibits ovarian cancer cells. In fact, cancer cells die when they are exposed to kaempferol. It also has the ability to stop cancer from growing the new blood vessels needed to feed it starving them through a process called apoptosis. Authors of a 2011 study6 said: [K]aempferol induces apoptosis in ovarian cancer cells and is a good candidate for the chemoprevention of ovarian cancers in humans.
Scientists involved with multiyear research7,8 involving 66,940 women enrolled in the Nurses Health Study noted a 40 percent reduction in ovarian cancer risk among women who had the highest kaempferol intake, compared to women with the lowest consumption.
