Cellular Healing: The Often-Overlooked Remedy for Chronic Disease

In Alternative Cancer Therapies, Breast Cancer, Cancer, Cancer Coach, Energy Healers, Healing Cancer Naturally, Integrative Oncology, Mind Body Therapies for Cancer, Uncategorized on October 20, 2020 at 5:56 am

Healers are amazing souls. I am a strong believer in the power of healers- so gifted in their ability to address many chronic diseases. Some are energy healers, and others are psychic surgeons, masters of the Emotion Code, or extremely talented and Reiki healers who administer healing by “laying on hands”, but also without touch and even remotely.  These people are all truly gifted. The healer I would like to highlight today is Mike Carey, who has been given a unique gift to be able to tap into cellular memory to find the cause of health issues and the natural remedies to resolve them.

What is Cellular Memory?

Cellular memory and the electricity of the body can be used to determine the cause and the natural remedy for many chronic diseases. It is a library storehouse of everything that has ever happened to you in your life, and the key to your healing.

Asking the body questions is a way of accessing that memory.  It can be done verbally, or by just thinking the question, because thoughts are a frequency as well as voice, and frequencies travel through the air or over the phone line. The body responds to the frequency of the question and it also responds to the frequency of the products used to correct the health problem. It allows healers to tap in and discover anything about you on a physical, emotional or energetic level, or to tap into your subconscious mind right down to a cellular level.

Healing the Body with Frequencies

I first met Mike over seven years ago when he healed me of several issues by tapping into my cellular memory. Since then he has found that frequencies are the key. They travel at the speed of light (186,000 miles per second) so he can treat people almost instantly, anywhere in the world by putting the frequency of the needed remedy right into their cells. For example, it used to take 5-7 days to rebuild the adrenal glands when a person has adrenal exhaustion.  Now, it takes about 30-40 minutes. To fix an Occipital bone that is out used to take 2 days. Now it takes 2 minutes. 

Healer Mike Carey

Mike also discovered he can do second level testing and treating, which basically means he can test and treat people through them because the body knows its frequency. This is great, especially for people who might not be open to working with healers (which often prohibits healing as energy is blocked). People can be tested and treated without them even knowing it. What an incredible gift. I find it all so fascinating.

Mike can do the testing over the phone via his toll-free number (from the US and Canada) or via Skype. This is possible because everything in the universe works by electricity and frequencies, including your body and phone.  Frequencies also travel through the air or we would not have GPS, WIFI, or those little key fobs that open your car door. To clarify, Mike first has to hear a person’s voice on the phone or in person in order to test them. When that happens, his body records the frequency of their body and then after that, he can test them by email. He has been doing this type of testing for the over 30 years.

For more information, please visit Mike’s website: https://www.alternativesolutions4health.info/

Please be sure to read his “Little Known Amazing Health Facts”, which I found fun and enlightening to read.

Affirmations and Cancer Survival

In Affirmations, Alternative Cancer Therapies, Cancer, Cancer Coach, Emotional Healing, Healing Cancer Naturally, Integrative Oncology, Uncategorized on March 25, 2020 at 11:39 am

Affirmations are positive statements that can help you achieve success in anything, including surviving cancer.  Affirmations offer a powerful way to regain a peaceful state of mind. Daily affirmations have the power to improve your mindset and positively affect your cancer survival.

Gloria Gaynor and Elyn CGI

Elyn Jacobs and Gloria Gaynor at the 2013 Clinton Global Initiative

While jumping on my trampoline (rebounding) to the tune of Gloria Gaynor’s  “I Will Survive”, I thought about how appropriate the song is for those healing from cancer. “I Will Survive” is a powerfully strong affirmation.

“I Will Survive” wasn’t written for those with cancer.  The song seems to be about dumping an undesirable past lover.  But actually,  “I Will Survive” is about perseverance. At the time, Gaynor was in a back brace, recovering from surgery after an stage accident left her paralyzed from the waist down.  (Her mother had also recently passed away).  According to Gaynor, she related her situation to the song and she thought others would do the same. Many of the lyrics in “I Will Survive” impart powerful affirmations for cancer patients and for anyone facing a difficult situation.

Gaynor first speaks of being petrified and feeling sorry for herself, something many who have just been diagnosed with cancer go through. One could make good use of the lyrics. Telling the cancer to go away: “Go on now, go, walk out the door. Just turn around now, cause you’re not welcome anymore.  She sings about finding the strength she needed, and of course, states with conviction “I Will Survive”.

Cancer is really more of a symptom than a disease. If we can resolve the reasons for the cancer, we have a good chance of healing from it.  I am not suggesting one can just tell cancer to go away. I know that declaring you will survive does not simply make that happen. But being confident in your choices for healing and affirming your conviction that you will survive your cancer can make a huge difference.

Affirmations can help you survive your cancer.

“I Will Survive” is fun to dance to, on or off the trampoline.  Both activities are uplifting, and rebounding has numerous health benefits.  I highly recommend rebounding to all, but particularly for anyone who has had lymph nodes removed. Don’t have a trampoline? Crank up the music and dance. As for affirmations, they too are helpful for everyone–not only for those with cancer, but in this time of uncertainty.

From “I Will Survive”:

“At first I was afraid, I was petrified..

Go on now, go, walk out the door
Just turn around now
‘Cause you’re not welcome anymore

Do you think I’d crumble
Did you think I’d lay down and die?

Oh no, not I, I will survive
Oh, as long as I know how to love, I know I’ll stay alive
I’ve got all my life to live
And I’ve got all my love to give and I’ll survive
I will survive, hey, hey

It took all the strength I had not to fall apart

And I spent oh-so many nights just feeling sorry for myself
I used to cry
But now I hold my head up high and you see me
Somebody new

Go on now, go, walk out the door
Just turn around now
‘Cause you’re not welcome anymore

Do you think I’d crumble
Did you think I’d lay down and die?

Oh no, not I, I will survive”

Energize the Lymphatic System and Bounce Cancer with Rebounding

In Alternative Cancer Therapies, Breast Cancer, Cancer, Cancer Coach, colon cancer, Cononavirus, COVID-19, Healing Cancer Naturally, Health Benefits of Rebounding, Integrative Oncology, prostate cancer, Uncategorized on March 24, 2020 at 2:06 pm

Rebounding energizes the lymphatic and immune systems to help fight cancer. A strong immune system keeps a vigilant eye out for bacteria, viruses, and mutated cells that may contribute to disease. A highly functioning lymphatic system carries these toxins away from cells and the bloodstream to facilitate elimination. Importantly, the lymphatic system gets a powerful boost from rebounding.

If you are not familiar with rebounding, it is the movement of bouncing, jumping, or dancing on a trampoline. Used indoors, this typically means a mini-trampoline. The vertical up and down movement of bouncing is particularly effective for keeping lymph fluid moving.

Cancer Cells and Detoxification

 Cancer cells are created by the body every day. Our immune system has the important task of seeking out and destroying cancerous cells. Tumors often develop when a compromised immune system is unable to detect and remove these abnormal cells.

One of the reasons that cancer cells proliferate is the overload of toxic substances from our food, water, air, home and beauty products, paper products, and plastics (just to mention a few). Toxic build up without an effective means of detoxification can contribute to disease. Here’s where the lymphatic system comes into play.

The lymphatic system is the body’s inner “drainage system”. It carries fluids, along with bacteria, infections, and cancer cells.

The lymphatic system carries metabolic waste, toxins, and poisons from the cells and into the lymph fluid so the lymphocytes can eliminate them. Lymph surrounds cells throughout the body, collecting debris before draining it into the lymphatic system. The waste passes through many filters (lymph nodes) where specialized white blood cells called lymphocytes attack and eliminate the threat.  Lymphocytes are capable of detecting and destroying cancer cells and eradicating tumors.[i]

However, the lymphatic system is notoriously sluggish. When lymph remains sluggish, the lymph nodes become clogged and lose their filtering ability. Debris then becomes trapped, leading to toxic overload and contributing to the onset of cancer.

Rebounding has been found to activate lymphocytes and improve lymphatic circulation by stimulating the millions of one-way valves in the lymphatic system. Each bounce opens and closes these one-way valves between the lymphatic system and the cells.  While bouncing, toxins, poisons, and metabolic waste are pulled out of the cells into the lymph fluid, and oxygen and nutrients are pulled in the cells from the lymph fluid.  This supports the body’s immune capacity for fighting current disease, destroying cancer cells, eliminating antigens (such as toxins, bacteria, and virus that trigger an immune response) and preventing future illness.

A further benefit of rebounding is that by bouncing, white blood cells triple in number and remain elevated for an hour. These specialized cells play an important role in the body’s defense against illness and disease. Importantly, rebounding should be considered by anyone who has had nodes removed as they may have an even more sluggish system given the disruption in the system.

Rebounding has Many Health Benefits:

  • Alleviates stress
  • Improves mood (especially when you dance to music)
  • Strengthens the musculoskeletal system
  • Stimulates one-way valves to remove waste
  • Brings oxygen to cells, which may inhibit cancer
  • Increases capacity for respiration
  • Improves resting metabolic rate and may burn fat
  • Strengthens the heart muscle
  • Improves balance and endurance
  • Strengthens the pelvic floor and core
  • Improves lymphatic flow which helps escort toxins from the body
  • Strengthens bones
  • Is great exercise and fun!

It takes only two minutes of rebounding to flush the entire lymphatic system, while cleansing and strengthening cells and lymph nodes.[ii] Ideally, one would want to rebound for a few minutes, intermittently throughout the day. Doing this daily or at least a few times a week can be beneficial. For the purposes of exercise, 30-40 minutes daily could be helpful. As with other exercise programs, it is best to gradually increase time and intensity.

Rebounding doesn’t have to be expensive. You can find a few good ones on Amazon, such as the one I use by Wonder Maxi.

Rebounding offers an excellent means of exercise when going outdoors or to the gym is not possible. Meanwhile, it helps to flush the lymphatic system, cleansing cells and nodes. When you jump, jog, dance, twist, and do jumping-jacks on a trampoline you can get your exercise and help your lymphatic system bounce cancer.

In your everlasting good health,

Why Cancer Returns

In Affirmations, Alternative Cancer Therapies, Books for Cancer Patients, Breast Cancer, Cancer, Cancer Coach, cancer stem cells, chemotherapy, Emotional Healing, Energy Healers, Epstein-Barr Virus, Healing Cancer Naturally, Mind Body Therapies for Cancer, Uncategorized on February 10, 2020 at 2:54 pm

Cancer returns because treating cancer typically does not resolve the reasons for the cancer

Cancer returns because often the treatments for cancer spread the cancer.

Cancer returns because your MIND could be making you sick or believes you want to be sick.

Cancer Treatment Does Not Resolve the Reasons for the Cancer

German scientist and physician R.G. Hamer, founder of Germanic New Medicine, did considerable research in the field of psychosomatic cancer therapy. He examined some 20,000 cancer patients with all types of cancer and discovered that every cancer in the body has a different emotional cause. He believed that cancer occurs when an individual suppresses for long periods toxic negative emotions (primarily anger, hate, resentment and grief). This creates cell changes within the body leading to cancer.  There is a strong correlation between emotional patterns and the progression of cancer.

     “Cancer does not begin in the body; cancer begins in the brain  R.G.Hamer

The power of repressed emotions, anger, and resentment as well as a lack of self-love is not to be overlooked in the creating and healing of our cancer. Emotional challenges can develop into physical ones. Emotions not expressed in words or actions find expression in physical ailments.

When I discuss the past with my clients, there is always the ‘ah-ha’ moment when he or she looks at me and says “yep, that’s me”, and this applies to cancers across the board. So much of healing comes from inside, by healing past hurts. It is therefore critical to uncover and release these toxic negative emotions (or relationships) in order to heal  and reduce the risk of the return of cancer.

There are many ways to heal the mind. EFT tapping, EMDR, psychotherapy, the Emotion Code and the Healing Code are a few suggestions.

           Epstein Barr Reactivation and Cancer

Scientists now know how viruses such as Epstein Barr (EBV) reprogram healthy cells into cancer cells. It has become clear that EBV is involved with most cancers, especially for those who have impaired immune system (if you have cancer, that is likely the case). It seems that a protein component of the virus itself (Latent Membrane Protein 2A) promotes the development of cancer.[i] EBV infects the cell-signally mechanism of B cells. As a result, these cells have a greater chance of transforming into cancer cells.[ii]   

Thankfully, more and more oncologists are now testing for EBV reactivation. If yours has not, you might request it and follow the recommendations on my EBV page.

Cancer Treatments Spread Cancer

Cancer Surgery

Although surgical removal of tumors can reduce tumor load, it has long been acknowledged that the surgery itself may precipitate or accelerate tumor recurrence.

Cancer surgery can be curative in some cases, but other times it can actually activate tiny, distant tumors that had been held in check by the immune system. (Note: biopsies can also spread cancerous cells). In many cases micrometastases from a primary tumor have traveled long before that tumor was detected.

Therefore when your surgeon says “We got it all”, that might not be the case.

    “Surgery promotes the growth of micrometastatic and residual disease.”[vii]

Metastatic cancer cells that leave the primary tumor can form clinically undetectable micrometastases at distant sites. A study published in Science Translational Medicine found that “About 35% of women diagnosed with breast cancer already have thousands of micrometastases, but only half of them eventually develop metastatic, life-threatening cancer.”[iii] In those who do not go on to develop metastatic breast cancer, the body’s cell-killing white blood cells known as CD8+T cells have been able to eliminate the cancerous cells.  

The researchers found that “surgical wounding”, either through biopsy or surgery, can promote the growth of these metastasized cancer cells. The scientists labeled this as “surgery-driven interruption of dormancy in breast cancer.”[iv]They found that surgical wounding triggers a substantial increase in the outgrowth of previously immunologically restricted tumors. Their results indicate that systemic inflammation initiated as part of the wound-healing process contributes to distant recurrence.

The research, performed at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Department of Surgery, concluded that “Surgery which is intended to be a curative option to remove and reduce tumor mass, can paradoxically also augment development of metastases.”[vi]

As a cancer and wellness coach, I can not advocate for taking damaging NSAIDS or aspirin used in the study (aspirin being the lesser of the two evils, but taken routinely can damage the stomach lining). There are many non-toxic, safer ways to target inflammation and help prevent the immune system from letting down its anti-cancer guard (such as curcumin, but a comprehensive protocol would be optimal).

 Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy

While doctors often recommend chemo and radiation to target stray cancer cells, they are toxic to healthy cells. Further, increasing evidence suggests that chemotherapy and radiation can promote cancer, fueling metastasis and making malignant cancer stem cells (CSCs) more aggressive.[viii]

Cancer stem cells are virtually resistant to chemo and radiation, and are often responsible for drug resistance, tumor recurrence, and the progression of cancer.

Normal stem cells are capable of self-renewal and multi-differentiation. Cancer stem cells are no different. They have the ability to reconstitute tumors and proliferate slowly. Cancer recurrence and progression are often due to the fact that therapies are aimed at the tumor bulk without targeting CSCs. [ix]  (For more information, including recommendations for targeting CSCs, see my articles on CSCs, links to which are in the footnotes below).

The Mind is the Healer, The Mind is the Killer   

No matter what you believe in, know this — the mind is powerful.

Having faith in your chosen therapy is very, very important. Whether it is chemo, radiation or any of the plethora of holistic remedies, you must believe in it and do it 100%. If you allow fear to get the better of you, if you are in a state of panic, it is almost impossible to make good choices. Importantly, if you remain in a state of panic, it will not matter what therapy you choose, the cancer may win.

The worst scenario is when there is doubt and becoming overwhelmed by all the choices. Choose something and just DO IT. People who jump from one thing to another just end up in a perpetual state of anxiety, and the result is rarely good.

The late Dr. Nicolas Gonzalez wrote an excellent article Four Reasons Why Cancer Patients Routinely Die. He spoke about how panic, inability to make a decision, the Myth of Authority, and the Myth of Credentials make it very difficult to survive.[x] I cannot stress how important it is to choose a treatment plan and believe in it.   

        “The Mind is the Healer, The Mind is the Killer”  Ze’ev Kolman  

The mind is more powerful than the body. The cancer may return because the mind believes you want to be sick.

The Mind is the Healer the Mind is the KillerHealer Ze’ev Kolman wrote the book, The Mind is the Healer, The Mind is the Killer. In it he details how the mind can heal you and how the mind can destroy you. Everything you think, say, and write makes a difference in your healing. Say and think only positive thoughts, affirm that you are happy, healthy, and worthy of love.

Even cancer lingo can hinder life. For example, the word ‘remission’ implies you are expecting the cancer to return. When you focus on recurrence, cancer has a better chance to revisit you. When you believe you can heal, or  have healed, you have a better chance of doing so. Conversely, if you believe you will not survive, likely you will not.

There are many reasons why cancer returns. Cancer is not a battle, we don’t ‘fight’ cancer or conquer it.  We heal from it. We make the necessary changes and correct the imbalances to alter the terrain to one inhospitable to cancer. 

As Albert Einstein so correctly said, you can’t keep doing the same things and expect different results. Cleaning up our diet, detoxifying, and avoiding cancer-promoting substances and activities is critical. However, it is not always about what you are eating, but what is eating you. Emotional toxins, fear, and past traumas are often the issue and can be the biggest hurdle.

So what can you do about your mind, CSCs and mircomets from surgery? There are plenty of supplements and foods that improve immune function and target cancerous cells. Healers and therapists can help with the traumas (see the suggestions above). If you would like to discuss your options to reduce the risk of your cancer returning, please request a consult.

In your everlasting good health,

Elyn

Options for Breast Cancer: Making the Best Choice for YOU

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 one of the major reasons for the recurrence) was resolving past emotional traumas, which you can read about HERE.

Read about natural alternatives to aromatase inhibitors and tamoxifen HERE.

To listen to me talk with the Templeton Wellness Foundation about my choices, click 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. You can read about these on my Shop page. To schedule a consult, please click HERE.

In your everlasting good health,

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.

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:

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).

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.

In your everlasting good health,

12 Top Supplements for Prostate Cancer

In Alternative Cancer Therapies, aromatase inhibitors, Cancer, Cancer Coach, cancer stem cells and recurrence, Cell Phones, EMF's, Healing Cancer Naturally, prostate cancer, Radiation, targeting cancer stem cells, Uncategorized on December 7, 2019 at 9:00 am

The conventional treatments for prostate cancer include everything from ‘watchful waiting’, active surveillance, external radiation therapy, radioactive seeds, to radical prostatectomy. Some less conventional treatments include hyperthermia, which can vary in intensity depending on the clinic, but has shown strong efficacy in some cases. But strong research shows that targeted supplements can be highly effective alongside or in some cases in lieu of the more damaging and expensive remedies.

Aside from the more standard essentials such as magnesium, selenium, CoQ10, and vitamin D, there are many non-toxic affordable supplements available that can be used alongside and often in lieu of other treatment offerings for prostate cancer. Keep in mind that quality matters as there is always the risk of harmful or risky additives. For example, while oleander has been found to increase the sensitivity to radiotherapy of PC-3 prostate cells and has other cancer-fighting properties,[i] some formulas contain grain alcohol, which is not advised as is typically made from GMO grain or corn. It is also very important to cycle supplements as cancer stem cells can be come resistant to even the best of the best.

While not inclusive, here are some top supplements for prostate cancer:

  • Aromastat-supports healthy hormonal balance in men; regulates testosterone and modulates aromatase, the enzyme that converts testosterone into estrogen. Aromastat
  • Beta-sitosterol is a food-based plant sterol (Phyto sterol) which is noted for its ability to protect the prostate and relieve the symptoms of prostate problems. Studies have found that beta-sitosterol also kills both prostate cancer cells without harming normal cells, reduces prostate tumor growth, and protects against prostate cancer. Beta-sitosterol is found in olive oil, flax seed, nuts, avocado, and other fruits and vegetables. Beta-sitosterol
  • DIM (Diindolylmethane), a phytonutrient and plant indole found in cruciferous vegetables (such as broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, kale, etc.) is a natural aromatase inhibitor, which is helpful for hormone-driven cancers. Joint USA/Chinese research reported in September 2016 found that DIM also reduces tumor growth by suppressing a gene known as PCGEM1 and promotes apoptosis (cancer cell death). DHT Block (DIM)
  • IP6 increases Natural Killer Cell activity; inhibits cell proliferation; helps stop cancer growth; inhibits cell progression; inhibits metastasis; induces apoptosis; and inhibits angiogenesis. Supports the p21 and p53 genes (tumor suppressor genes) that control cancer growth. “By targeting PI3K-ILK1-Akt pathway, IP6 suppresses cell survival, proliferation and angiogenesis and induces death in PCa cells, which might have translational potential in preventing and controlling the growth of advanced and aggressive PCa.” [ii]  IP6 or Cell Forte
  • Modified Citrus Pectin (MCP) is a type of polysaccharide that comes from the cell walls of citrus fruit and is most commonly known as a source of dietary fiber. It can also lessen the “stickiness” of cancer cells that could be exacerbated with surgery and may lead to cancer metastasis. Evidence-based research has shown MCP to have a direct effect on prostate cancer. Studies have found MCP intake to decrease cancer cell adhesion, thus reducing the risk of metastases. MCP has been shown to prolong the time it takes for doubling of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels; the more slowly PSA doubles, the more slowly the tumor is growing. MCP also activates cancer-killing immune system cells (natural killer, or NK, cells), boosting their ability to patrol for and eliminate cancers as soon as they form Modified Citrus Pectin and ProstaCaid
  • OnKobel-Pro® –is a professional formulation of three unique botanicals (Pao pereira, Rauwolfia vomitoria, and golden leaf of Ginkgo biloba) and magnesium specially designed to help support cellular health. OnKobel-Pro® provides multiple levels of support for the growth of healthy cells, elimination of abnormal cells, and the maintenance of natural levels of enzymes that are critical for homeostasis (according to extensive research by Beljanski –see Description online). RGCC (a.k.a Greek test) 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, the specific mix of Pao pereira (formerly known as PB-100)Rauwolfia vomitoria and golden Ginkgo biloba extracts (OnKobel-Pro®) has been confirmed to be able to induce apoptosis (death) of the cancer cells for many patients suffering from  prostate cancer.[iii]
  • PROSTABEL®, a powerful combination of two plant extracts has strong anti-cancer abilitites that act on damaged DNA and inhibits tumor growth. It also supports the body’s natural defense system to target cancer cells. PROSTABEL®
  • Pomegranate: Not only are pomegranates good for your heart and blood vessels but they have been shown to inhibit  prostate cancer and prevent vascular changes that promote tumor growth. Pomegranate has also been found to kill cancer stem cells. Pomegranate Plus
  • Pterostilbene, found an abundance in blueberries, is anti-inflammatory and inhibits proliferation and regulates cell cycle dysfunction in prostate cancer cells. t also inhibits cell growth and adhesion and decreases metastatic activity. Pterostilbene
  • PanacurC (Fenbendazole) shows good promise for cancer. There may be some mild side effects to this treatment. There are some excellent Facebook groups that share patient stories and experiences. PanacurC
  • Quercetin is an antioxidant which belongs to a group of plant pigments called flavonoids that give many fruits, flowers, and vegetables their colors. Like other antioxidants, quercetin helps scavenge free radicals in the body which damage cell membranes and tamper with DNA. In addition to protection against heart disease, studies have shown that quercetin inhibits the growth of cancer cells from prostate tumors, including cancer stem cells. Quercetin is found in onions, apples, red grapes, as well as in supplement form. Quercetin
  • Zeolite: chelates toxic minerals such as mercury, lead, cadmium and aluminum; removes PCBs from the body; reduces diarrhea; improves nutrient absorption from the digestive tract; has anticancer properties as it activates the P21 and indirectly the suppressor gene P53; balances digestive pH; modulates the immune system, possibly in part by reducing toxic materials and targets pre-viral cells. Zeolite–AV Capsules 

This list is not inclusive, and synergistic food offerings matter as well. A product called  IMMUNOBEL-PR0 can be taken if the white blood cell and platelet counts are low due to these treatments, and should be started the day before treatments begin. For more information on the foods, practices, and supplements that support prostate health and healing you can order my handout on Prostate Health and Prostate Cancer, via my Contact Page.

lambs 2Protect your privates. There have been countless studies that show that cell phones stored in bras have resulted in the occurrence of tumors on location. It only stands to reason that cellphones stored in one’s pocket could be detrimental to one’s privates. A company called Lambs makes boxer briefs with something they call WaveStopper, a silver-lining technology that apparently blocks 99% of cellphone and WiFi radiation. For a 15% discount on Lambs radio-protective underwear, use this LINK and the code ElynJacobs. For more radio-protective recommendations, please read my articles on 5G and radio-protectors.

Pau d’arco for Breast, Prostate, Colon, and Other Cancers

Pau d’arco, also known as Taheebo, is extracted from the inner bark of several species of Tabebuia trees that grow in Central and South America. The medicinal uses of Pau d’arco (PDA) date back to 1873.  PDA has been used in South America to treat a wide range of conditions, including pain, ulcers, arthritis, fever, prostatitis, Candida, osteoarthritis, cough, influenza, herpes, diabetes, ulcers, warts, infections, allergies, and even cancer, particularly cancers of the breast, colon, lung, prostate, and malignant melanoma.

What the Docs Have to Say

Dr. James Duke of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Dr. Norman Fransworth of the University of Illinois have reported PDA contains active substances (such as β-lapachone and lapacho) found to be highly effective against various cancers. Dr Paulo Martin, a Brazilian medical researcher, reported that PDA has powerful antibiotic, virus and cancer-killing properties.[i] The late integrative oncologist Dr. Mitch Gaynor also used Pau d’arco with his cancer patients.

What the Studies Say

Scientists have discovered that compounds in PDA called naphthoquinones (mainly lapachol and beta-lapachone) are the reason for these impressive healing abilities. PDA also contains a significant amount of the antioxidant quercetin, which has been found to inhibit growth of cancer cells, including cancer stem cells. Some of the exciting cancer research on PDA:

  • Exhibits selective anti-proliferative effects in carcinoma cell lines, including ER+MCF-7 breast cancer cells[ii]
  • Inhibits the growth of estrogen receptor positive breast cancer cells and activates cancer-fighting genes[iii]
  • May block estrogen receptors [much like the SERM tamoxifen] as it is a powerful phytoestrogen [iv]
  • Effective against some bacteria, fungi, viruses (including Epstein Barr), and parasites that may be involved in cancerous processes
  • Induces cell death in prostate cancer lines[v]
  • Induces apoptosis independent of P53 expression; notably, over-expression of bcl2, a contributor for a number of cancers – including melanoma, breast, prostate, chronic lymphocytic leukemia, and lung cancer, does not appear to inhibit the  B-lapachone in PDA[vi]
  • Inhibits angiogenesis, the ability of tumors to make new blood vessels in prostate and other cancers[vii]
  • Suppresses the growth and angiogenesis of lung cancer[viii]
  • Inhibits the growth of cancer in a wide range of cancers, such as breast, prostate, cervical, liver, lung, and colon* (see Quercetin below)
  • Appears to increase the effectiveness of chemo and decreases side effects

Research also shows that the lapachol in PDA may have the ability to stimulate the production of red blood cells in bone marrow, which could be helpful for those with low red blood cell counts (RBC). Pau d’arco is also thought to eliminate toxins in the body and purify the blood.

Enjoy Pau d’arco tea, tincture or capsules. Another good tincture is Pau D’ Arco Plus, which also contains dandelion and red clover. Use of PDA during pregnancy is not advised. A potent herb, PDA should be cycled – meaning a few weeks on and then take a break for a few weeks – or swapped out for another cancer-fighting herb. This is especially important for those taking drugs or herbs that thin the blood or for Candida, as resistant strains of Candida can develop.

Spotlight on CLA, a Cancer-Fighting Fatty Acid: CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) is a fatty acid found in grass-fed meats and dairy products, but can also be taken in supplement form.  CLA suppresses the development of cancer at various levels. CLA has been shown to decrease skin, liver, and colon cancer. Activating protein-1 (AP-1) is one of the main promoters of colon and breast cancer, but it is blocked by CLA (licorice root and rosemary-fresh or essential oil also do this). Human abdominal, breast, and axillary fat have the ability to convert androgens into estrogens. Some studies show CLA helps rid the body of belly fat and may modulate immune and inflammatory responses.

As a holistic cancer coach (and survivor of stage 3 hormone-positive breast cancer), I work with people with many different types of cancer. However, the majority come to me looking to avoid the dreaded tamoxifen, aromatase inhibitors, Herceptin, Lupron, and other drugs and treatments, such as chemo and radiation. And of course, everyone is looking to get through cancer with the least amount of collateral damage and to do what they can to reduce the risk of recurrence or further cancers–to survive and live well. I coach one-on-one, but also offer a plethora of information on my website. However, some people are looking for options other than individual coaching or DIY (do-it-yourself) healing.

About a year ago I decided I would offer a webinar course to cover these topics and more. However, as life and work got very busy, I put that on hold. Meanwhile, my colleague and friend, Marnie Clark is now offering a fantastic ‘how-to-get-through-breast-cancer-course. Toxic Free Me is a comprehensive online-course with multiple learning modules.

The beauty of the course is that you can learn at your own pace. Plus, she will be adding to the course as new information comes out, and subscribers will have full access at no additional charge. The course is valued at $295 and offered for a limited time at $179, but if you enroll now and use this LINK, you get the entire course for only $149, with a 30-day money back guarantee.
