Doctors have long believed that the low doses of chemo can kill cancer cells while allowing healthy cells to rebuild between treatments. Unfortunately, this heavy reliance on chemo has meant that any gains in survival rate among cancer victims have been offset by terrible sickness and a low quality of life during treatment.
If you’ve never eaten collard greens (considered a Southern specialty), then you just might want to try them if you know what’s good for you. They are an all-around nutritional superstar, rich in lutein and zeaxanthin — antioxidants that studies show may reduce the risk of age-related macular degeneration, a common cause of blindness.
People can feel nauseous for a variety of reasons, including motion sickness, pregnancy or certain medical treatments. Luckily, there may be a soothing cure for nausea in your kitchen cabinet.
According to research published in The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, researchers found that chemotherapy patients who drank shakes containing 32 grams of protein had less frequent and severe nausea than patients who ate normally or had lower-protein shakes.
If we obey our doctor without question, we could have huge additional unnecessary risk.
“Tests” are a very big part of conventional medicine these days, and many of them have risk. Who cares? It’s the profit that’s important, and hospitals demand the income.
There is a cancer clinic in Freeport, Grand Bahama. This clinic can test specifically for cancer with a simple blood test. Treatment is by outpatient, though there is a hospital next door. This does not include the American cancer treatment system of operations, chemotherapy and radiation. The clinic, called the IAT Clinic, uses non-invasive therapy. I have personally talked with patients who had been told their condition was terminal before they went to this clinic, and some of them have survived some 20-plus years. Of course, those who come too late, as people are inclined to do, don’t really get the benefit, and they die.
Researchers in the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University have discovered yet another reason why broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables are so good for you: They contain a compound called sulforaphane that provides not just one, but two ways to prevent cancer through the complex mechanism of epigenetics.
A “normal” diet no longer consists of whole, natural foods that were intended for everyday human consumption, but has come to mean the intake of any number of processed, genetically modified, steroid- and hormone-enhanced foods. The massive health deficit caused by poor diet is evident, so would it be surprising to find that fasting may be a highly effective way to combat cancer?
A study published last week in the journal Carcinogenesis reports findings that grape seed extract (GSE) effectively kills head and neck cancer cells while leaving other cells unharmed. Researchers hope that the findings will help to alleviate the nearly 12,000 people who die of the cancers in the United States each year.

In a study of mice, Georgetown University Medical Center researchers found that social isolation and fatty foods elevated levels of a neurotransmitter in the brain associated with insulin resistance and breast cancer.
