Celery Boosts Your White Blood Cells and Starves Cancer

Celery has been is a traditional Asian folk remedy for many ailments for thousands of years. If you think celery is just a crunchy, low-cal vegetable, it’s time to bring it more into your daily nutrition as a key part of your health support. Recent research has greatly bolstered our knowledge about celery’s anti-inflammatory health benefits, including its protection against inflammation in the digestive tract itself.

James Duke, Ph.D., author of The Green Pharmacy, found more than 20 anti-inflammatory compounds in celery and celery seeds, including a substance called apigenin, which is powerful in its anti-inflammatory action. Adding celery seeds to soups, stews or as a salt substitute in many recipes can boost the flavonoid content of these preparations.

The antioxidant support we get from celery is largely due to its phenolic nutrients that have been shown to help protect us against unwanted oxidative damage to our cells, blood vessels, and organ systems. (more…)

Gut Flora and Cancer – The Link Exposed!

In a hurry? Click here to read the Article Summary…

Let’s talk about your gut flora and cancer! You may not realize just how important your bowel condition (known as the microbiome) is to cancer prevention.

Spoiler Alert: Gut Health is Critical

A friend of mine recently pointed out an article in Bloomberg’s Business News that shows mainstream science is finally catching on to what I’ve been saying for a decade about gut health! The results of their data shocked the researchers with Roche AstraZeneca, but I wanted to do a face-palm!

Your good gut flora will help you prevent and fight cancer. That’s a fact.

Cultivating beneficial gut bacteria is your first line of defense against cancer and many other serious diseases. It does this by boosting your immune system at the places you’re almost always hit first with − toxins, heavy metals, parasites, fungi, and harmful bacteria.

Nurturing the system that protects you from so many layers of possible invasion of foreign contaminants should be common sense. But you’d be shocked how many in the medical community don’t recognize the importance of the gastrointestinal system in total health.

The man who heads up Roche’s cancer immunotherapy research, Daniel Chen, said, “Five years ago, if you had asked me about bacteria in your gut playing an important role in your systemic immune response, I probably would have laughed it off.”

And so many have, again and again, while doctors like me wanted to shake them and yell, “How can you not understand the science of this? How can you not see the connection between gut health and cancer (and heart disease, neurodegenerative disease, chronic pain…)?”

Living a Longer Life with Baking Soda

http://www.breaknews.xyz/ocs-images/82868/could-baking-soda-make-you-live-longer.jpg

Research published recently in the Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology found that having balanced bicarbonate levels in your body reduces chances of an early death. The study examined data compiled in the Health, Aging and Body Composition Study for 2,287 participants.

Study author Dr. Kalani Raphael, associate professor and nephrology and hypertension specialist at the University of Utah, and colleagues investigated pH, carbon dioxide and bicarbonate in association with long-term survival. According to the University of Utah, “Critically ill patients with severe acid-base abnormalities have a very low likelihood of surviving their illness.”

Dr. Raphael found that low levels of bicarbonate is linked to an increased risk for premature death by 24 percent. “What we found was that generally healthy older people with low levels of bicarbonate had a higher risk of death,” Raphael said. The study’s findings assists clinicians in better assessing patient’s risk of premature death by analyzing their blood bicarbonate concentrations more closely, something doctors never do. What he is saying is that the secret to health lies with sufficient bicarbonate levels. Older adults who have low levels of bicarbonate in their blood are putting themselves at risk of premature death.

The Once Demonized Source of Fat That Kills Cancer and Treats Alzheimer’s

Cancer Cococnut OilCoconut oil was victimized during that era of erroneous dogma that demonized saturated fats, including butter, and created the unhealthy trans-fatty acid hydrogenated unsaturated fat industry, which included margarine. Saturated fats have been resurrected from the trash bin of forbidden foods over the past decade or so with proven health merits.

 

 

Now that the fog of junk science dogma has lifted, more and more health conscious folks are finding saturated fats, especially coconut oil, are beyond just safe. They are healthy and medicinal. Several published but unpublicized studies have been conducted and are in progress regarding palm or coconut oil’s medicinal properties.

One of the most profound studies that you probably haven’t read or heard about involves cancer. It was conducted by Australian researchers and published in the January 2014 journal Chemotherapy under “experimental chemotherapy”. It was an in vitro (test tube, petri dish) study on human colon or colorectal cancer cells.

Apple peels documented to kill cancer cells

The old adage, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away,” rings truer than ever when examining the scientific evidence showing that eating apples can help kill cancer cells.  While apples themselves are known to have many disease-fighting benefits, mounting evidence shows you shouldn’t remove the peel from the apple before consuming it or you could be discarding a part of the apple containing the greatest concentration of cancer-fighting antioxidants.

Studies have long shown an inverse relationship between consumption of apples and cancer. Research analyzing the positive effects of apple peels on prostate and breast cancer cells suggests that the cancer cells are able to turn off one of the body’s natural defense mechanism. The apple peel’s ability to turn back on the cancer-suppressing protein, known as maspin, is explained in this video (below) by Michael Greger, M.D.

Wow! Apples are truly a ‘super’ food (more…)

Astragalus: The Super Herb that Prevents Cancer

You’ve probably heard of natural cold remedies like echinacea, garlic, and goldenseal. But here is a remedy that may be even better! So just what is this miracle remedy? It’s an ancient Chinese herb called huang qi, which means “yellow leader,” but you probably know it by its more common name… astragalus.

Native to China, Mongolia, and Korea, astragalus is a herb that grows up to three feet tall. Known botanically as “astragalus membranaceus,” the yellow root has various medicinal uses.

Can Royal Jelly Cure Cancer?

Royal jelly is a milky substance secreted from the glands in the hypopharynx of worker bees. It isn’t honey or bee pollen, but those who are allergic to bees should not use it. Image-of-Royal-Jelly

Worker bees feed royal jelly to larvae and adult queen bees. In fact, it is the queen’s principal food throughout her lifetime, enabling her to lay 2,000 eggs a day and live for 5 to 8 years. The queen bee lives 40 times longer than worker bees and researchers are discovering that royal jelly might hold the key to their longevity, strength, and size.

Royal Jelly Benefits

Royal jelly consists of flower nectar, proteins, glucose, fats, minerals, vitamins, and amino acids. It also contains an abundance of health benefits that meet specific needs for cancer patients − keeping them strong and healthy before, during, and after traditional cancer treatments.

Better Than Chemo: Turmeric Kills Cancer Not Patients

Better Than Chemo

About one hundred times less toxic than chemotherapy, turmeric extract (curcumin) was found more effective at killing colorectal cancer stem cells from patients than a popular combination of conventional drugs.

Researchers from the United Kingdom have just made a major breakthrough in cancer research by demonstrating for the first time in patient-derived colorectal cell lines that a turmeric extract (curcumin) is not only an effective adjunct agent to enhance conventional chemotherapy, but that it may be even more effective on its own.

Published this month in Cancer Letters and titled, “Curcumin inhibits cancer stem cell phenotypes in ex vivo models of colorectal liver metastases, and is clinically safe and tolerable in combination with FOLFOX chemotherapy,” the study evaluated the so-called “diet-derived agent” curcumin — the primary polyphenol in turmeric — as a possible adjunct to enhance conventional treatment of colorectal cancer with chemotherapy.

She Refused Chemo & Instead Chose To Receive Injections of This Plant (Hint: It’s NOT cannabis)

Ivelisse Page Believe Big

Ivelisse Page’s family has a history of colon cancer. Her father died from the disease in his late thirties. Knowing that she was at higher risk for developing the illness, she followed a healthy lifestyle of organic food and exercise and got regular colonoscopies, yet she also developed colon cancer at the age of 37.

After the diagnoses, she had 15 inches of colon with 28 lymph nodes removed, and later 20% of her liver removed, she writes on her website. But there was one important part of the mainstream oncology treatment that she declined to do – after researching her disease and treatment options herself, she completely refused chemotherapy.

Instead Ivelisse turned to homeopathic remedies and supplements, as well as mistletoe injections – a popular alternative cancer treatment in Europe. Seven years later, she is complete cancer free and is happy to say that she beat IV stage colon cancer that only 11% of patients survive.
