Five fruits that stop cancer

pomegranate 2(Health Secrets) Scientists have discovered five fruits that stop cancer. Each has a specific cancer fighting component that shrinks tumors, and keeps cancer cells from proliferating. Unlike the drugs of mainstream cancer treatment, these components are not specific to one form of cancer, but are able to treat many forms of cancer successfully.

Five fruits that stop cancer

Pineapple – Bromelain, a proteolytic enzyme, is the key cancer fighting component in pineapple. Scientists at the University of Oxford in the U.K. have found bromelain shrinks tumors through its ability to dissolve fibrin, the protein based defense shield that protects cancerous tumors. Once that shield is stripped away, the immune system can easily eliminate them.

Bromelain has the ability to modulate key pathways that support malignancy. This anti-cancer activity consists of direct impact on cancer cells and their micro-environments, as well as strengthening the immune system, reducing inflammation, and altering the hemostatic system, making it more difficult for tumors to set up and maintain a blood supply.

What Big Pharma doesn’t want you to know about bromelain

Bromelain is an inexpensive enzyme supplement with many uses and health benefits. Enzymes don’t get much respect, yet they are considered more important functionally than vitamins and minerals. Without enzymes, food cannot be broken down into its constituent nutrients, and enzymes are needed for most cellular metabolic actions.

Pineapple’s Amazing Healing Properties Revealed

Enjoyed the world over as something of an icon of the tropical experience, the pineapple was used in indigenous medicine for a wide range of ailments; uses that are only now being confirmed by modern scientific methods.

While most know pineapple as an exceptionally delicious tropical fruit, indigenous peoples used it to treat a variety of ailments. Unfortunately, much of this intimate plant knowledge was considered by early anthropologists to be based on mere “superstition” and subsequently disregarded, so few in the modern world have been made aware of its formidable healing powers.

The Latest Weapon in the War on Cancer: Honey Bees

By Dr. Mercola

Propolis, the “caulk” honeybees use to patch holes in their hives, has been used as a natural remedy since ancient times, treating ills ranging from sore throats and burns to allergies.

New research has revealed another exciting use for this seemingly miraculous substance, this time in the fight against cancer.

Proven to kill cancer cells without destroying your immune system

Chemotherapy is one of the most well known ways to treat cancer. Unfortunately, chemotherapy drugs by nature are extremely toxic and usually work against your body’s natural mechanisms to fight cancer. It destroys your host immunity instead of supporting it. Along with inhibiting your immunity, it destroys healthy cells in your body as well and can lead to more severe health problems going forward. The other side effect chemotherapy has is the fact that it can actually support the growth of more cancer cells by destroying the immune system.

An alternative to chemotherapy can be found in natural compounds that can kill cancer cells without destroying the healthy cells that are essential for recovery. It is an effect called “selective cytotoxicity.” The result is a targeted, intelligent cancer treatment that doesn’t hinder the body’s ability to fight cancer. (more…)

Surprising Cancer-Fighting Benefits of Pineapple Enzyme

By Dr. Mercola

One of the reasons why conventional cancer treatment is such a dismal failure in the United States is because it relies on chemotherapy.

Chemotherapy drugs are, by their very nature, extremely toxic and typically work against your body’s natural ability to fight cancer, e.g. destroying host immunity instead of supporting it.

One of the biggest drawbacks to chemotherapy is the fact that it destroys healthy cells throughout your body right along with cancer cells, a “side effect” that often leads to accelerated death, not healing.

Another devastating side effect of chemotherapy is the way it actually supports the more chemo resistant and malignant cell subpopulations within tumors (e.g. cancer stem cells), both killing the more benign cells and/or senescent cells within the tumor that keep it slow-growing, or even harmless.

As a result, this unleashes a more aggressive, treatment-resistant type of cancer to wreak havoc on the body.

A handful of natural compounds have been discovered, however, which exhibit an effect called “selective cytotoxicity.”  This means they are able to kill cancer cells while leaving healthy cells and tissue unharmed.

This type of cancer treatment is intelligent, targeted and will not result in the death of the patient from “collateral damage” in what is increasingly a failed war not against the cancer being treated, but the patient’s own irreversibly devastated body.

Bromelain as a Natural Anti-Clotting Nutrient

Bromelain is one of the best nutrients known to help dissolve things in your body that should not be there.  It is little surprise that a review of bromelain animal and human studies show that it can help keep your blood from improperly clotting.

The science shows that bromelain inhibits platelets from sticking together while also protecting the walls of arteries.  It has a specific effect on thrombin, helping reduce clotting factors associated with clot formation as well as reduce existing clots.  Unlike the rat poison used by the medical profession, it does not interfere with needed clotting and actually speeds healing.  (more…)

Bromelain Inhibits Fungal Growth: Help for Gluten Intolerance?

Purified bromelain from pineapple is one of the highest concentrations of protease enzymes in any natural product.  Your body naturally makes protease enzymes to help repair inflammation, clear out tissue damage, and remove scar tissue.  A new study shows that bromelain-derived protease enzymes have a potent ability to inhibit the growth of pathogenic fungus up to 90 percent

In a pathogenic state such fungus form biofilms, weed-like structures I refer to as germ gangs.  A common example is that of Candida albicans, which has become a national epidemic due primarily to the overuse of antibiotics, especially when accompanied by high sugar diets and/or excessive alcohol intake.

Enjoy holiday meals again – Ten tips to cure acid reflux naturally

Sharing a big meal is a time-honored tradition for most holiday celebrations, and over-indulging is often accompanied by food coma and acid indigestion.
