 An Anti-Cancer Diet

Benefits of a Holistic Approach:

There are many benefits of a spiritual and Holistic approach to Cancer treatment. I offer the first “microbiotic” approach to diet that offers lessons each animal has for humans on increasing the healing power of the human body through diet and nutrition. This book offers a diet that pays attention to our rainforests, our animals, and ourselves, and because of its attention to the entire ecosystem, the diet offers the best possible spiritual solution for someone eating to cure Cancer. Our clinic works with the Cancer patient to help them spiritually, emotionally, and physically through diet, meditative spiritual techniques, exercise, various spa services, and botanical protocols free from the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation.

An Alternative to Chemotherapy

Chemotherapy, along with non-steroidal anti-inflammatories, beta blockers, and diuretics is the leading cause of medication based mortality. Because of the problem of nausea and vomiting caused by chemotherapy agents, and damage to the digestive tract, many cancer patients develop anorexia. It lead to a wasting syndrome called cachexia. It is estimated 40% of patients die of malnutrition from Chemotherapy rather than the disease itself. Dr. Hardin Jones showed that untreated patients with Cancer live up to 4 times longer than those who receive conventional therapy. Patients who refuse chemotherapy and radiation live up to 4 times longer. i Dr. Levin of UCSF writes, “Chemotherapy does not eliminate breast, colon, or lung cancers. This fact has been documented for over a decade, yet doctors still use chemotherapy. “ Stanford doctors compared chemotherapy to doing nothing in lymphoma. The patients without any treatment at all did just as well. In the 1994 Journal of the National Cancer Institute, they published a 47 year study of more than 10,000 patients with Hodgkins lymphoma treated with chemotherapy. These patients encountered an incidence of leukemia 6 times the normal rate. Dr. Ulrich Abel did a comprehensive review of every major review and analysis of every major study and clinical trial of chemotherapy ever done. He states that 80% of chemotherapy is worthless and found the worldwide success rate “appalling”. ii . Chemotherapy stops normal cells from dividing but also eliminates the immune system by stopping white blood cell production. An individual without an immune system cannot possibly hope to cure a disease which is often caused by this very same problem. If patients knew that most alkylating agents were none other than mustard gas, which when spilled, needs specially trained technicians to come in white space suits to clean up, most would never take Chemotherapy.

Insulin and Cancer

Cancer is the leading killer in America along with heart disease. Today, Insulin is widely considered the single leading food based cause of cancer, above aflatoxin and environmental toxins. This is due to the widespread occurrence of high blood sugar in America. Roughly one in 10 Americans have high levels of insulin due to hyperglycemia. Insulin is known to release estrogens from their carrier proteins, allowing them to react freely in the human body, increasing Cancer risk. Insulin and insulin like growth hormone also mimic the action of growth hormone, increasing cell growth proliferation throughout the body. By drinking 300 ml of milk a day, a child’s intake in Japan is approximately 10 mg of estradiol 17-B. This estradiol is the most potent estrogen and this amount is equal to 4000 times the intake of environmental hormones. High dairy consumption is a major cause of reproductive disorders in males and increased cancer rates today. . iii iv

Women with diabetes have a 20% greater risk of developing breast cancer, according to 20 studies. v In one study of American and Canadian women under 50, those with the highest level of insulin like growth factor, were 7 times more likely to develop breast cancer. In over 10,000 women in Italy, older than 35, those with high blood sugar levels were 3 times more likely to develop breast cancer. Insulin receptors are 6 times higher on breast cancer cells compared to normal cells. Obese women, who have high insulin levels, have a 50% greater risk of cancer than lean women. The rate of breast cancer mirrors the rate of diabetes, 1 in 10.

Individuals with Diabetes are 30% more likely to develop colorectal cancer (15 studies covering 2.5 million patients). vi

The risk of prostate Cancer is 9 times greater for those with the highest levels of IGF. The rate of obesity in men fairly mirrors the rate of prostate cancer, 1 in 3. People with high blood sugar (Diabetes Type II) have an 82% higher risk of developing pancreatic cancer (36 studies covering more than 9,000 patients). Studies of a high carbohydrate diet with mice show that after a little over two months, over 64% of the mice died (16 of 24)on the high carbohydrate diet compared to just 1 of 20 mice with tumors on a low carbohydrate diet. High blood sugar is known to reduce the natural killer cells and neutrophils by up to 50%, due to glycosylation (sugar-coating) of immune cells, and their dysfunction, increasing immune dysfunction and contributing to cancer.

Digestive Enzymes

One of the most effective treatments for Cancer today is digestive enzymes. These enzymes, such as amylase, proteases, and lipases, normally released from the pancreas, assist in protein breakdown in the body. Digestive enzymes appear to degrade the protective layers cancer cells create to protect or hide them from the immune system. When pancreatic digestive enzymes are overtaxed, the enzymes have to come from somewhere else than the pancreas. They typically have to come from immune cells, our white blood cells. This can lead to increased allergies, decreased immunity, and even Cancer. It may also be that the more food that needs to be digested, the more energy is taken away from fighting Cancer cells, towards the digestive process. Herbivore-insectivores have a pancreas less than a third the size of humans. This is because their diet has many times the enzymes ours does because of all the high enzyme grass, vegetables, and herbs in their diet. Humans also have a pancreas much larger to accommodate their greater protein intake as Carnivores.

Vegetables such as ginger and green leafy vegetables are highest in digestive enzymes. Vegetables also are high in carotenoids such as beta-carotene, found largely in green leafy vegetables. Carotenoids are pre-vitamin A compounds that help stabilize cell growth and development and are also beneficial for individuals with Cancer. The more raw vegetables in the diet, the lower the risk of Cancer. Foods with inhibition of cancer cell growth include wheatgrass, garlic, brussel sprouts, scallions, leeks, broccoli, cauliflower, savoy cabbage, onion, cabbage, kale, spinach, and wheatgrass. Vegetable superfood blends high in wheatgrass and similar vegetables are considered highly beneficial for Cancer. The relatively high magnesium deficiency, the most common of all vitamins and minerals, suggests most Americans are vegetable deficient.

Vitamin C Therapy

Of 5,000 species of mammals, only humans and primates, along with a minor insect or fish, and the red-vented bulbul songbird, cannot synthesize vitamin C. This defect, arising through evolution, is considered an inborn error of metabolism. It may also explain why animals such as elephants, and other herbivores, are able to consume fruit without developing heart disease or obesity. Some suggest rapid turnover of tissues in animals, such as fruit eating birds. Most animals produce 2-8 grams daily. Gorillas in the wild seek out about 4.5 grams of vitamin C a day. White blood cells have 50 times the concentration of vitamin C as normal cells. The deficiency of Vitamin C in humans leads to a suppressed immune system, that may contribute to allergies, immune disorders, and Cancer. High dose Vitamin C is one of the leading cutting edge therapies for Cancer, nourishing the immune system and allowing unused Vitamin C, a water soluble vitamin, to pass out of the body. Others also suggest that high dose Vitamin C (above 40 grams) becomes a pro-oxidant, rather than an antioxidant, killing Cancer cells that do not have enzymes such as Catalase to help them with the oxidant effect. Cancer cells cannot survive in an oxygen rich environment. Furthermore, vitamin C mimics sugar in its chemical structure, tricking Cancer cells into uptaking Vitamin C, rather than sugar, which normally feeds Cancer cells, which can live only on sugar. Along with digestive enzymes, a reduced carbohydrate diet, advanced detoxification and other nutriceutical formulas, IV Vitamin C is a new alternative therapy for Cancer.
