If you don’t know your options (for breast cancer) you don’t have any. That is my motto, and I can’t tell you how important it is to take control of your treatment plan. It is imperative that you make informed choices, not fear-based choices for your breast cancer.

In October, 2014 I found that my previously stage 1 cancer had spread to my lymph nodes. I was subsequently diagnosed as stage 3 (ER+). I have told this story before, but am sharing it again as I want people to know there are many paths to healing breast cancer.

Importantly, there are many reasons why people get cancer and why it returns. Resolving those reasons can make all the difference in survival.

Declining Chemo and Radiation

My choice does not necessarily have to be your choice. I was fortunate that I had a holistically-minded oncologist who supported my choices. A world-renowned integrative oncologist, he believed healing cancer often required both Eastern and Western medicine. This typically involved conventional methods used alongside holistic mind-body therapies, supplements, dietary changes, and more. Most of all, like me, he believed getting to the reason for the cancer is a major part of treating it.

Given my new diagnosis, my oncologist was legally compelled to recommend chemotherapy. I know that if had chosen the conventional chemo (or even the low dose chemo he suggested after I declined traditional chemo) it would have been a reasonable option. I know that if I had chosen it, he would have done everything he could to make the treatment work better with less negative effects.

That said, it did not resonate with me. Part of that came from my mother dying not so much from her cancer, but from the treatment (he was not her doctor). The rest came from my innate feeling that it was not right for me, and that it would not resolve the reason for my recurrence. My oncologist agreed that chemo was not necessarily the best option for me. He said was glad that I opted out of radiotherapy, and supported my choice to skip the aromatase inhibitors. He offered a few other options, but none seemed to resonate with me. I will forever be grateful for his support.

My Choices for Breast Cancer

Instead of the options presented, I chose a protocol put together from my years of research and conference attendance, leaning on input from my oncologist and an alternative doctor friend of mine.  I do believe that most of us have more to learn than we will ever know, and the experience has only strengthened my ability to help my clients through their cancer.

You can read about my protocol HERE. A major part of my healing (and most likely the major reason for the recurrence) was resolving past emotional traumas, which you can read about HERE.

Goals for Healing:

  • Don’t be fooled that your own estrogen is the reason for your breast cancer (it plays a role, but not the lead).
  • Target viruses such as Epstein Barr, which plays a significant role in breast cancer (and you may not realize you have it)
  • Clean house: remove toxic products and people from your life
  • Eat clean without deprivation
  • Take targeted supplements
  • Resolve the traumas that are getting in the way of your healing and may well be at the root cause of your breast cancer
  • Avoid EMFs and take protective measures; for recommendations, click HERE
  • Believe you can and will heal–the power of the mind is incredible!
  • Walk in nature; soak up the positive vibes and the sun
  • Live, laugh, love and smile!
  • If you don’t know your options, you don’t have any

You have many options for healing from breast cancer. I implore you to be informed and make educated, confident choices.  Know that there are many natural substances that can make conventional therapies work better and with less toxicity.

Eternity: Quite Possibly the Best Bio-Identical Progesterone Cream

Progesterone is vital for a woman’s body. It is the key to many aspects of female health, and often thought of as one of the most important hormones. Unfortunately, most women have very low levels of progesterone which can result in estrogen dominance. This can wreak havoc in the body. Eternity bio-identical progesterone cream might be the answer.

Eternity Organics Bio-Identical Progesterone Cream

Why You NEED Progesterone

Progesterone is the precursor to other important hormones, including estrogen and testosterone. These hormones play a significant role in female health, influencing everything from cognitive function, menopause, fertility, helping the uterus to grow during pregnancy, normal breast development during puberty, and so much more, including breast cancer prevention. Importantly, the body depends on the right balance of these hormones in order to function properly.

 

 

 

Symptoms of progesterone deficiency include:

  • Unexplained fatigue and low energy
  • Intense PMS symptoms such as cramps and moodiness
  • Dizziness
  • Difficultly sleeping
  • Irritability
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Fibrocystic breasts
  • Mood swings
  • Hot flashes
  • Low libido
  • Irregular menstrual cycles
  • Weight gain
  • Fibroids
  • Endometriosis
  • Thyroid dysfunction
  • Infertility and miscarriage
  • Uterine bleeding
  • Breast and other cancers

Some women have been progesterone-deficient most of their lives, whereas others found themselves in this predicament around age 45 or so. Regardless, it is imperative that we increase progesterone and in turn, balance the hormones. Clearly the list above gives you enough reasons.

Raising Progesterone

Foods can help raise progesterone include broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables, beans, and nuts. Things that deplete progesterone are stress and excessive exercise (which cause the body to produce stress hormones instead of progesterone).

It is important to understand the difference between progesterone that is made by the body or is molecularly similar to one’s own natural progesterone and synthetic progesterone, which has been molecularly altered (the prescription one). This is why many women opt for bio-identical progesterone.

However, as discussed in a previous article,  Could Aromatase Inhibitors Actually Increase One’s Risk for Breast Cancer prescription bio-identicals can be problematic. According to Dr Mache Seibel, M.D., author of The Estrogen Window, you have to be careful with compounded bio-identicals. This is because typically the progesterone in many compounded formulas tends to be 60-80% lower than ordered and estrogen 80-200% higher than ordered which can result in increased estrogen dominance. This could raise your risk of hormone-driven cancer.

The answer lies in safe and effective bio-identical topical creams. There are a few good ones on the market, but one I recently discovered that has some great research behind it and no harmful chemicals is Eternity Organic Progesterone Cream.

Please take a few moments to view this informative clip on progesterone and Eternity Bio-Identical Cream:

According to their website, Eternity does NOT contain Chinese Progesterone (only natural, American-made progesterone) and is made from all plant-based, natural ingredients.

Regarding breast cancer,  natural progesterone is not to be feared. In fact, it is widely believed that estrogen can only fuel breast cancer in the absence of progesterone. In essence, progesterone puts the brakes on cell proliferation and growth. Of course, chemical estrogens (also known as xenoestrogens) such as BPA (bisphenol A) and other chemicals often found in home and personal care items are another story. They DO fuel breast cancer. Unlike natural estrogen which is flushed out of the body after 12 doing its job, xenoestrogens are stored in fat cells, increasing the risk of cancer (time to clean those out of your life).

One Unique Cancer Killer You Need to Know About

In Alternative Cancer Therapies, Breast Cancer, Cancer, Cancer Coach, Cell Phones, chemotherapy, colon cancer, EMF's, EMFs and Health Risks, Integrative Oncology, prostate cancer, Radiation, targeting cancer stem cells, Uncategorized on January 14, 2020 at 10:07 am

Cancer remains one of the biggest health challenges of our time. While conventional treatments can prolong life, they often come at a high price. There is the financial side of it, of course, but also the debilitating and often life-threatening side and resulting effects. As Dr Keith Block, an internationally recognized expert in integrative oncology, has said time and again,

Most people with cancer do not die of their cancer, but rather from the complications and consequences of cancer and its treatment.”[i] 

Unfortunately, many oncologists are offering conventional treatments such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy without life-saving integrative support. And sadly, whenever a non-toxic remedy for cancer is discovered it is met with fierce opposition from the pharmaceutical industry.

Today I will discuss a ‘cancer killer’ from from the Beljanski line, OnKobel-Pro® , which can be used synergistically with conventional treatments or as part of a holistic cancer protocol.  If you are unfamiliar with Mirko Beljanski, PhD, and his research, here is a short synopsis:

Mirko Beljanski was a ‘green’ molecular biologist who discovered certain plant extracts that selectively target cancer cells, including circulating tumor cells. Importantly, he found that these extracts selectively block cancerous cell multiplication without killing healthy cells. His daughter, Sylvie Beljanski, carried forward the research and development after his death. For more about Mirko Beljanski and the history behind Beljanski products, please read Extraordinary Healing or Wining the War on Cancer

What is OnKobel?

OnKobel-Pro®  is a unique formulation of three botanicals (Pao pereira, Rauwolfia vomitoria, golden leaf of Ginkgo biloba). According to the research some of the benefits include:*

  • may exert a significant anti-inflammatory effect and so provide support for the immune system;
  • induces apoptosis (death) of cancer cells for many patients suffering from various kinds of cancer;
  • may inhibit the growth and spread of cancer;
  • provides multiple levels of support for the growth of healthy cells and elimination of abnormal cells;
  • helps to normalize the balance of hormones in male and female reproductive systems; and
  • has a protective effect on tissues exposed to various forms of electromagnetic radiation (EMFs)

*See Beljanski online for more information, resources, and references

RGCC, a.k.a the “Greek Test” (which tests the blood for malignant tumor cells, including circulating tumor cells, and assesses the patient’s sensitivity to chemotherapy as well as natural substances that target cancer cells: More below) lists OnKobel-Pro® as an agent that targets circulating tumor cells by inhibiting the growth and spread of cancer. In Japan, where the RGCC test is routinely prescribed, OnKobel-Pro®  has been confirmed to be able to induce apoptosis (death) of the cancer cells for many patients suffering from various kinds of cancer. [ii]

What is the RGCC test?

They actually have more than one test but the one I am referring to is called Onconomics Extracts:

“This test provides information about the efficacy of natural biological substances or extracts on circulating tumour cells. Onconomics Extracts focuses on testing using three methods: testing for the direct effect of an anti-cancer treatment, stimulating the immune system and inhibiting proliferative signals in the cancer cells that stimulate them to grow.” RGCC[iii]

IMMUNOBEL-Pro, another Beljanski product, can be taken if the white blood cell and platelet counts are low due to radiation or chemotherapy treatments, and according to the manufacturer, should be started the day before any cytotoxic treatments begin.

To purchase other Beljanski products, click on the links in RED OnKobel-Pro®.  To order  IMMUNOBEL-Pro®,  contact us via our Contact Page.
Because this is part of their Professional Line, please contact me directly and we will place the order for you. Click HERE to order OnKobel-Pro or IMMUNOBEL-Pro.

Two Powerful Anticancer Substances and Why YOU Should Consider Them

In Alternative Cancer Therapies, Alternatives Cancer Treatment, antioxidants, Breast Cancer, Cancer, Cancer Coach, colon cancer, Healing Cancer Naturally, Integrative Oncology, prostate cancer, Uncategorized on January 9, 2020 at 4:25 pm

Killing tumor cells is not the only factor in treating cancer. The ultimate goal should be making the lives of cancer patients as long and high-quality as possible–something that is often over-looked. Integrative oncologists utilize many natural substances to improve the efficacy and mitigate the negative effects of cancer treatments. However, not everyone has access to integrative oncology. But there are many easily affordable substances you can add to your protocol. Two I will speak of today are N-Acetylcysteine (NAC) and the lesser known Zeolites.

NAC is a protein that the body uses to boost levels of the master antioxidant glutathione, which helps protect against free radicals and toxins. NAC has been found to reduce the aggressiveness of cancer and inhibit the spread of cancer cells.

Research published in the journal Seminars in Oncology by a team at the School of Environment and Life Sciences at the University of Salford in the United Kingdom discovered that NAC helps prevent the growth of cancer cells by depriving them of proteins that are important for their survival. NAC also has powerful antioxidant properties, which means that it can reduce cell damage caused by oxidative stress. The team identified high levels of oxidative stress in the stromal cells of tumors. They explained that when the stromal cells are exposed to oxidative stress, they release substances (nutrients) that cancer cells need to survive.[iii] Theoretically, the antioxidant properties of NAC would then help to starve the cancer cells of these nutrients.

To test their theory, they studied the effect of NAC on several key biomarkers of cancer aggressiveness in breast cancer patients. What they found was that NAC reduced the cell replication index KI67 by 25% and levels of MCT4 by 80%! These biomarkers are linked to aggressive cancer behavior and poor overall survival.

The researchers used a combination of intravenous NAC alternating with oral NAC 600 (one, twice daily).  Oral NAC is widely available, but you can buy it HERE.

Zeolites are natural minerals that come from volcanoes. More specifically, they are formed as a result of a chemical reaction between the molten lava and thick ash and the salt from the sea.

Zeolites are best known as chelating molecules, helping to remove heavy minerals such as mercury, lead, cadmium, and aluminum from the body. This is important as these toxins are implicated in a variety of cancers, and seem to fuel the Epstein Barr Virus, which in itself is involved in most cancers.[i]

However, as it turns out, zeolites are also very good at shrinking tumors and halting the growth the growth of tumors. Zeolite activity against cancer involves the activation of the tumor suppressor gene P21, which controls cell-cycle progression.[ii]

An easy way to take Zeolite is with this spray  or in this powdered form.

While not stand-alone treatments for cancer, NAC and Zeolites can be part of an inexpensive, non-toxic way to stop cancer processes. Always discuss supplements with your doctor to be sure they are synergistic with your treatment plan.
