Nicholas Gonzalez, MD, and the Trophoblastic Theory of Cancer

Cancer treatment with chemotherapy yields disappointing results for most cancer cell types.  Perhaps we should be exploring alternative cancer treatments, such as one proposed by Nicholas Gonzalez, MD, a keynote speaker at a medical conference I attended five years ago in Denver Colorado (Boulderfest conference July 17-20 2008.)

Less Than 1Tsp. Ginger and Cinnamon Daily Relieves Muscle Soreness in Athletes

Many well-intentioned workout resolutions have been thwarted by the first signs of sore, stiff muscles in the days following a visit to the gym.  A new study finds that two common kitchen spices help relieve that post-workout muscle pain.

Researchers at Iran’s Isfahan University of Continue reading

Intravenous Vitamin C and Cancer

“…it takes much more than logic and clear-cut demonstrations to overcome the inertia and dogma of established thought.” — Irving Stone

Irving Stone was an early thinker and writer about vitamin C (its scientific name is ascorbic acid). He knew it would be an uphill battle to change the way Continue reading

Bitter Melon Juice Potently Suppresses Pancreatic Cancer Growth with no Side Effects

A new study has shown that the juice of bitter melon, a commonly eaten vegetable in Asia and Africa, markedly suppresses the growth of pancreatic tumors in mice by disrupting the cancer cells’ metabolism of glucose, and literally starving them of the sugar they need to survive.

Bitter melon – Numerous health effects already known

Bitter melon (Momordica charantia) is widely cultivated and eaten across Southeast Asia, Africa, China, Japan, Oceania and even in the Caribbean. It is especially popular among Continue reading

Grape Seed Extract Eliminates Cancer Cell

Did You Know…

… grape seed oil can cure seemingly hopeless cases of cancer?

Discovering a chemotherapy treatment capable of selectively eliminating cancer cells would be a cancer researcher’s equivalent of finding the Holy Grail.  Continue reading

Cancer is not a Disease – It’s a Survival Mechanism (Book Excerpt)

What you are about to read may rock or even dismantle the very foundation of your beliefs about your body, health and healing. The title, Cancer Is Not a Disease, may be unsettling for many, provocative to some, but encouraging for all. This book will serve as a life-altering revelation for those who are sufficiently open-minded to consider the possibility that cancer is not an actual disease. Continue reading

Grape Seed Extract Kills Cancer Cells without Harming Healthy Ones

Humble extract slays cancer cells

This year, nearly 12,000 people in the United States will die of head and neck cancer.

Worldwide, there will be over half a million cases.

The situation is pretty bleak.

But, after a revelation in a new study, a humble extract could change everything. Continue reading

Antioxidants from Food – The Five Best Sources

Cells need oxygen to metabolize minerals and vitamins to survive and thrive. When cells cannot use oxygen to metabolize, they resort to fermenting glucose for their energy.

That’s what cancer cells are about. That’s why anything that oxygenates cells works to cure cancer, and that’s why cancer patients should avoid sugar.

The paradox of cellular oxidation Continue reading

Surprising Cancer-Fighting Benefits of Pineapple Enzyme

Story at-a-glance

  • Chemotherapy destroys healthy cells throughout your body right along with cancer cells, a “side effect” that often leads to accelerated death, not healing; it is also known to encourage the growth of the treatment-resistant cells within tumors, making the cancer more deadly Continue reading

Learn about the Amazing Health Benefits of Juicing Raw Cannabis (Marijuana) Leaves

 Contrary to popular belief, the marijuana plant is a whole lot more than just a psychoactive drug that “stoners” use to get high. In raw form, marijuana leaves and buds are actually loaded with a non-psychoactive, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-cancer nutrient compound known as cannabidiol (CBD) that is proving to be a miracle “superfood” capable of preventing and reversing a host of chronic illnesses.

Though you may not have heard Continue reading

Beehive Extract Shows Potential as Prostate Cancer Treatment

Proteomics reveals how ancient remedy slows prostate tumor cell proliferation
An over-the-counter natural remedy derived from honeybee hives arrests the growth of prostate cancer cells and tumors in mice, according to a new paper from researchers at the University of Chicago Medicine.

Caffeic acid phenethyl ester, or CAPE, is a compound isolated from honeybee hive propolis, the resin used by bees to patch up holes in hives. Propolis has been used for centuries as a natural remedy Continue reading

Discover a Common Yard Weed that’s Proven to Kill Cancer Cells

 Most natural health advocates know that dandelion is a good liver tonic. But now research is showing that it’s also a cancer fighter. This research discovery occurred at Windsor University in Windsor, Canada.

A Windsor University biochemist, Siyaram Pandey, reluctantly took up dandelion research from a Windsor oncologist’s suggestion. Dr. Caroline Hamm noticed a few cancer patients who had been drinking dandelion tea seemed to be getting better. Continue reading

A Seed That Could Stop Tumor Growth

Mustard seeds are not a big part of the North American diet. In Japan, however, they are frequently added to many meals and are eaten in abundance. Researchers have noted that the Japanese also have the longest life expectancy in the world. In a recent health breakthrough, researchers have discovered that mustard seeds may play a small but important part in the robust health of the Japanese.

Mustard seeds contain a number of potent phytochemicals to boost your nutritional health. In fact, many of these antioxidants have yet to be fully discovered by scientists in the medical community. Chinese researchers set out to solve some of this mystery by performing a clinical trial.

They used a specially prepared extract made from mustard seeds and applied it to a collection of human colon cancer cells to see if any beneficial effects could be seen. They found that the mustard seed extract helped to prevent the growth of the tumor cells Continue reading

Turkey Tail Mushroom Proven by NIH Study to Fight Breast Cancer

Did you know… that extracts from Turkey Tail mushrooms have been proven by an NIH study to cure cancer — especially breast cancer?

Some of the most exciting recent discoveries of Turkey Tail mushrooms’ cancer-fighting power are connected to world-renowned mycologist Paul Stamets. Mycologists are scientists who specialize in the branch of biology dedicated to the study of fungi.

Mycology includes studying fungi for genetic and biochemical properties and potential usefulness to humans, including medicinal applications.

Undoubtedly the most well-known and highly valued fungi-derived medicine is the life-saving antibiotic penicillin. But other fungi are highly medicinal as well, as Paul Stamets learned firsthand. Continue reading

This Extract Shown to Kill Cancer Cells

We have all heard about the health benefits of resveratrol. It has been in the news for the past couple of years. Resveratrol comes from the skin of grapes and has been touted as an amazing cholesterol-buster and antioxidant.

It’s not surprising, then, that researchers at Colorado State University just completed a new study examining the health benefits of grape seed extract and resveratrol together.

The U.S. researchers found that grape seed extract could inhibit the growth of colon cancer cells in the laboratory. Colon cancer is the third leading cause of cancer deaths in men and women.

It seems that grape seed extract starts something called “apoptosis.” Apoptosis is a process in which cells are programmed to die. Unlike cell death due to injury, for example, apoptosis is a beneficial process. When the fetus is growing in the womb, apoptosis causes cell death in the fingers and toes, so that they can separate into individual digits. There are many, many other examples of beneficial cell death.

In this particular study, apoptosis appeared to kill off colon cancer cells before they could divide and multiply. In addition, grape seed extract and resveratrol together seemed to have an even more potent effect Continue reading
