Dietary Antioxidants Mitigate the Effects of EMF Radiation on Cancer and Fertility

In Anticancer foods, foods for colon cancer, foods for breast cancer, antioxidants, Cancer, Cancer Coach, Cell Phones, EMF Radiation, EMF's, EMFs and breast cancer, EMFs and Health Risks, Fertility and Sperm Counts, infertility, male infertility, MRI Dangers, Radiation, Uncategorized on February 13, 2020 at 9:15 am

Electromagnetic fields (EMFs) generated by cellphones, power lines, wiring, home appliances and cellphones have the potential to cause extensive damage to the human body. They may jeopardize fertility and pregnancy, and could lead to conditions such as cancer.

EMFs can directly act on DNA, proteins and lipids, which can lead to molecular and cellular damage. The result is an increase in free radicals with strong oxidative ability. This can lead to chronic inflammation, tissue degeneration, and necrosis (tissue death), which could lead to cancer and other conditions. Dietary supplements and other interventions may offer significant protection against EMF radiation.

EMFs and Oxidative Stress

Oxidative stress is associated with more than one hundred diseases and is considered an emerging health risk factor.

Researchers have found that EMF exposure triggers oxidative stress and causes significant changes in levels of blood antioxidant markers. Oxidative stress occurs if the antioxidant defense system is unable to prevent the harmful effects of free radicals. Many studies have revealed the role of oxidative stress in carcinogenesis. Such studies offer clear evidence that oxidative stress plays an important role in chronic inflammation and gene expression, which in turn could result in many chronic diseases, including cancer.[i]

Other conditions oxidative stress is associated with include sleep disruption, arthrosclerosis, diabetes, dizziness, rheumatoid arthritis, cardiovascular disease, nausea, stroke, and lipid peroxidation (which can cause selective alterations in cell signaling, protein and DNA damage).

EMFs and the Brain

There is considerable evidence that EMFs can affect neural functions in the human brain. EMFs have been reported to alter the permeability of the blood-brain-barrier, which may lead to excess accumulation of heavy metals, including iron, in the brain. Fatigue, headache, decreased learning ability, and cognitive impairment are among the symptoms caused by EMFs.

Studies suggest that long-term exposure to low-frequency EMF increases lipid peroxidation in the brain. Lipid peroxidation can lead to significant damage in cells, particularly in the brain (which may be offset by zinc supplementation and keeping devices away from the brain).[ii]

EMFs and Fertility

A study performed by the Department of Histology and Embryology, Faculty of Medicine, Ondokuz Mayıs University, Samsun, Turkey, and published in the Journal of Microscopy and Ultrastruction, concluded that “exposure to RF-EMF produces increases in testicular proteins in adults that are related to carcinogenic risk and reproductive damage.” The researchers found that exposure to cell phone radiation reduces the motility and morphology of sperm cells. They also reported a “significant increase in fetal abnormalities and spontaneous abortions in pregnant women exposed to EMFs.” [iii]

Carrying phones in your pocket or on your belt exposes your reproductive organs to powerful EMF radiation. Using a laptop on your lap or getting too close to one or your computer may also cause harm.

If you are pregnant, you may be putting your unborn child at risk by exposing him or her to EMF radiation.

Belly Armor Blanket

There is no longer any doubt that electromagnetic fields generated by cellphones, clock radios, computers, power lines, MRIs, Wi-Fi routers, wiring, and home appliances pose health risks, including the risk of cancer.

Belly Armor makes a wonderful blanket you can put on your lap to protect your baby. It works well a a barrier between you and your laptop and even between you and your hard drive (or other sources of EMFs) even if you are not pregnant or hoping to be so.

Flavonoids, Antioxidants, and Physical Interventions

Flavonoids and antioxidants may offer protection of DNA, prevent scavenging free radicals, and may protect against auto-immune damage and cancer. They may also protect the hematopoietic system and reduce inflammation. Excitingly, flavonoids and antioxidants have not only a radioprotective effect, but also anti-tumor, anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-inflammatory effects.

Some simple recommendations include consuming flavonoids (such as in berries, apples, tea, citrus fruits, red wine) and antioxidants such as vitamins C, E (mixed tocopherols), as well as gingko biloba, curcumin, lycopene, and melatonin.  Cruciferous vegetables and garlic are also good radioprotectors.  For more radioprotective foods please read Simple Solutions for EMFs.

Important note for those whose cancer protocol requires you to avoid antioxidants. For you (and all), my best advice is to avoid and/or protect yourself with physical barriers (such as those shown above), and avoid x-rays, PET scans and CT scans unless absolutely necessary.

EMF exposure intensity decreases as you increase your distance from the object that’s sending out waves. Therefore, first and foremost, put some distance between you and your technology. Always use speaker phone or air-tube headsets when using cellular devices. But certainly, antioxidant-rich foods and dietary supplements offer significant defense against EMF radiation exposure.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life. Protect yourself, your fertility, and your children from EMF radiation. Shield yourself from cancer-promoting EMF radiation.

In your everlasting good health,

Elyn

Cancer-Fighting Brussels Sprouts with Pistachios

In Alternative Cancer Therapies, antioxidants, aromatase inhibitors, Breast Cancer, Cancer, Cancer Coach, Cell Phones, colon cancer, Cononavirus, EMF Radiation, EMFs and breast cancer, EMFs and Health Risks, inflammation, prostate cancer, Radiation, Tamoxifen, Uncategorized on February 5, 2020 at 5:08 pm

Brussels sprouts are nutritious and delicious. A member of the cruciferous (aka brassicas) family, they offer several health benefits. Most notably, Brussels sprouts are powerful anti-cancer powerhouses.

Anticancer Benefits of Brussels Sprouts

According to the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and other sources, compounds in Brussels sprouts have powerful anticancer, antioxidant, anti-estrogen, anti-viral, and anti-inflammatory properties.[i] This is due to their high content of glucosinolates, sulfur-containing compounds that have been widely studied for their health benefits.

Diets rich in cruciferous vegetables have been found to inhibit and slow cancer growth in many cancer-cell lines, including breast, prostate, colorectal, esophageal, liver and lymphoma. Researchers attribute the benefits to the glycosinolates in Brussels, particularly sulforaphane and indole-3-carbinol. Notably, these glucosinolates help detoxify and eliminate cancer-causing free-radicals in the body. Sulforaphane promotes cancer cell death and inhibits cancer cell proliferation. It also supports the immune system and in particular, increases Natural Killer Cell activity.

Specific to breast cancer, studies show that Indole 3 carbinol helps to block estrogen receptors and restore receptor site expression to normal levels.[ii] It may act as a natural aromatase inhibitor and mimic tamoxifen or perhaps even perform more anti-cancer benefits than tamoxifen.

How to Enjoy Brussels Sprouts

Brussels sprouts are still in season now, but you won’t see them for long. While available in many areas year-round, the peak season is from September to mid-February. Look for smooth, unblemished, small heads. Sprouts with spots of signs of withering may be past their prime will taste slightly musty and contain fewer nutrients. For maximum freshness, look for Brussels in your local farmer’s market.

Boiling is not really the best option for cooking brussels sprouts as the cancer-fighting glucosinolates are water-soluble and may be lost in the cooking water. Further, high heat may decrease the bioavailability of the sulforaphane in brussels sprouts. Certainly, I do not recommend microwaving.

The following recipe involves a low-heat method that preserves their great nutty flavor and bright color, but also the anticancer benefits of Brussel sprouts.

Brussels Sprouts with Pistachios

Brussels Sprouts with Pistachios

Brussels Sprouts with Pistachios

Serves 2-4

Ingredients:

3 tablespoons coconut oil

1 medium red onion or 2 small red onions or shallots

1-pound Brussels sprouts, trimmed

1/2 cup shelled unsalted pistachios

2-3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  • Separate outer leaves of the sprouts and reserve; thinly slice the inner core pieces
  • Heat oil in a large skillet over low heat. Add onions or shallots and cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes
  • Add the sliced inner core pieces of the sprouts and cook for 5 additional minutes, until soft
  • Add the sprout leaves and pistachios, and sauté until leaves begin to soften, but retain their bright color, about 3 minutes
  • Add the lemon juice and season to taste with fine-ground Celtic sea salt and fresh pepper
  • Serve and enjoy

Heart-healthy pistachios are rich in nutrients, a good source of protein, and packed with antioxidants. Onions are another anticancer powerhouse.

Don’t enjoy Brussels sprouts or out of season? You can take sulforaphane and indole-3-carbinol in supplements.

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.

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.

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.

Male Infertility on the Rise from Cell Phone Use and Environmental Toxins

In antioxidants, Cell Phones, EMF's, EMFs and Health Risks, Fertility and Sperm Counts, infertility, inflammation, male infertility, Radiation, Uncategorized on November 18, 2019 at 8:39 am

It is impossible to envision a guy today who does not use a cellphone, laptop, or other device with Wi-Fi function. We know that these devises lead to the development of several types of cancer, but did you know that they can also impact fertility? Did you also know that endocrine disruptors such as bisphenol A (BPA) and phthalates can compromise male fertility?

What used to be mostly a female issue, fertility has now become a crisis for men as well. Some studies show it is a factor in 30-40% of infertility issues. While men create millions of new sperm daily, it is the quality of sperm that is at risk. To fertilize an egg, a man needs to be able to make healthy sperm and deliver it.

Sadly, the quality of sperm has diminished greatly in the past. A joint study done by Hebrew University and Mount Sinai medical school found that sperm counts have fallen by more than 50 percent in the last 40 years. What that means is that men are almost have as fertile as their grandfathers were.

The issue is complicated as there could be many underlying causes of declining sperm counts. Cell phones, smoking, alcohol consumption, oral contraceptives (contaminating tap water), and endocrine disruptors such as BPA, and phthalates are some of the most common.

Researchers performed at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Women’s Health, Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Montefiore Medical Center, agree that isolating cell phone EMFs from other environmental factors will be a challenge going forward for infertility doctors and their patients. (Incidentally, they too acknowledge that the EMFs can enhance the excitability of the brain and have been classified as carcinogenic).[i]

Modern life could be the answer to the question of fertility — cell phone use, obesity, alcohol consumption, smoking, inactivity, stress, and environmental toxins all play a role.  A 2013 study found that 20 hours of TV [or computer games] weekly may reduce sperm count by a whopping 50%, while 15 or more hours of moderate to vigorous exercise weekly may boost sperm count.[ii]

But of all of these, the hardest to deal with, are EMFs from various devices and exposures and toxins in the environment –specifically endocrine-disrupting chemicals found in things such as BPA and phthalates.

BPA and Phthalates

Chemicals such as BPA  mimic estrogen and can interfere with hormones such as testosterone. Found in plastics, paper products, and cash register receipts, BPA may be rewiring the male reproductive system, eroding sperm quality and quantity and even contributing to testicular disorders.

While not as detrimental to sperm as BPA, phthalates are also a problem. A review of various studies by the National Institute of Public Health confirmed “that phthalates cause diminished sperm count, increased frequency of abnormal spermatozoa and DNA damage in germ cells, especially after chronic exposure.”[iii]

EMFs 

Some of the Research on Cell Phone and Infertility:

  • In 2008, researchers at the Cleveland Clinic found that the use of cell phones by men is associated with decreased fertility. The researchers found a decrease in sperm count, motility, viability, and morphology, all of which impact fertility.[iv]
  • 2010 research by the Department of Physiology, College of Medicine, King Saud University determined “that long-term exposure to mobile phone radiation leads to reduction in serum testosterone levels. Testosterone is a primary male gender hormone and any change in the normal levels may be devastating for reproductive and general health.”[v]
  • In 2012, Dr. Devra Davis, PhD, MPH and author of Disconnect: The Truth about Cell Phone Radiation, What the Industry Has Done to Hide It, and How to Protect Your Family, spoke at the Integrative healthcare Symposium in NYC. She shocked all of us, including doctors and nurses, with evidence-based information regarding the dangers of cellphone on male fertility and various cancers. (Notably, her book was sold out at the conference). She commented that in Israel, there were signs over the urinals suggesting that men take their phones out of their pockets to protect future generations. For more on EMFs from the conference, read my recap. 
  • For Disconnect, Davis interviewed numerous top researchers in the field, including Om P. Gandhi, who studied how cell phones affect the brain, and Franz Adlkofer, who studied how it affects DNA. She also pointed out that men who keep cell phones turned on in their pockets for hours a day have fewer sperm with more deformities. Davis  referenced the work of Harvard trained Ashok Agarwal, who has written more than four hundred peer-reviewed articles. He found that men with the lowest sperm counts were significantly more likely to keep their phones on their bodies all the time, usually in their pockets. He also reported that those who reported using a phone for four hours or more had the lowest and sickliest sperm counts, and that sperm exposed to the highest levels of cell phone radiation had the most deformities and the worst swimming abilities.
  • 2014 research found a direct correlation between cell phone radiation exposure, decreased sperm motility and DNA-fragmentation.[vi] DNA fragmentation within sperm can increase the risk of failed conception or miscarriage. Decreased sperm motility inhibits the ability of sperm to move and ‘swim’ property toward and egg. Decreased morphology refers to the size and shape of sperm. As morphology declines or deteriorates, there is less opportunity to fertilize an egg. The researchers recommend that one avoid holding a mobile device in one’s pants pocket. It only makes sense to keep one’s laptop off their lap.
  • Another 2014 study published in Progress in Biological Sciences commented that EMFs can damage sex organs and cause hormonal disorders. The confirmed that microwave radiation affects various tissues via induction of heat generation and temperature rise, particularly problematic for males as the testes are more temperature sensitive.[vii]
  • 2015 research published in the Asian Pacific Journal of Reproduction determined that low frequency electromagnetic fields long-term exposure significantly reduces sperm motility and testosterone levels.[viii]
  • 2018 research concluded that EMFs may induce oxidative stress with an increased level of reactive oxygen species, which may negatively affect sperm quality and may lead to infertility.[ix]

 Reducing Cell Phone Risk

As evidence mounts for the danger cellphone usage to the brain, many men have resorted to using radiation-free headsets with their phones stored in their pockets.  This is not a good idea, raising concerns of equally damaging responses to the gonads. The particular concerns are a focus on apoptosis of reproductive cells, fertility status, and serum reproductive hormones. It certainly raises concerns for cancer risk below the belt.

Clearly, we can take our phones out of our pockets to minimize exposure. When not in use, phones should be turned OFF or on airplane mode. If trying to conceive, avoid saunas and of course, do not place heat-source objects such as cellphone and laptops near your privates. READ MORE HERE.

If you must put your laptop on your lap, find a good radiation shield, or borrow your mates’ radiation-blocking belly blanket (good gift for her once pregnant).

However, food helps and it helps a lot. Eating fresh mint, blueberries, flax seed and other radio-protectors offer some protection. Supplements can also be helpful. Mixed tocopherols (such as those found in the right kind of vitamin E), carotenoids, melatonin, vitamin C, NAC, curcumin, resveratrol, and flavonoids such as soy, astragalus, apigenin, and propolis have been found to interrupt the inflammatory cascade initiated by EMFs and cellular radiation exposure. (For brand recommendations, click on the highlighted supplement).

Reducing Exposure to Endocrine Disruptors Such as BPA

Use glass for storage instead of plastic dishes and plastic wrap. Do not touch cash register receipts. Use non-toxic cleaning and personal care items.

Detox plastics every day. Eat one or two servings daily of cruciferous vegetables (such as broccoli, kale, arugula, Brussels sprouts) as they speed up detoxification. Supplements such as Indolplex and calcium d’ glucarate give detox an extra boost.

Beware of BPA-Free plastics. Importantly, bisphenol S (BPS) and bisphenol F (BPF) are often used as a replacement for BPA, but so far studies show that they also significantly reduce testosterone levels.[x]

It is also wise to limit take-out food orders which are typically packaged in plastic dishes or in pizza boxes lined with PFAS, harmful chemicals found in non-stick cookware, fire retardants, dental floss, furniture, and water-proof and fire-protective clothing.

Your Health at Risk

An article written by Bryan Walsh, published in Newsweek, Male Infertility Crisis in U.S. Has Experts Baffled, presented powerful information on the topic of male fertility. Walsh detailed the various lifestyle choices and environmental toxins such as BPA that are dramatically reducing sperm counts. The eerie thing is that it appears that low sperm counts may lead to premature death, even among men in the prime of their lives who might seem otherwise healthy.

He quoted Hagai Levine, researcher at the Hebrew University and former chief epidemiologist for the Israel Defense Forces, “The constant production of new sperm cells makes semen highly sensitive to toxins and disease, making it an ideal surrogate for male health—’like blood pressure,’ as Louis puts it—beyond what it might signal for fertility. Poor sperm levels and infertility are a clear sign that men’s health is failing.

One 2015 study found that men diagnosed with infertility have a higher risk of developing health issues like heart disease, diabetes and alcohol abuse, while another connected infertility to cancer. ‘Semen quality isn’t just about a couple getting pregnant,’ says Louis. “There is increasing evidence at the population level that men with diminished semen quality die earlier and have more chronic diseases. This is as important to health as any disease state.

Sperm count decline is the canary in the coal mine says Levine. ‘There is something very wrong in the environment.’ Which means there may be something very wrong with men. “[xii]

While I do agree there is something very wrong in the environment, I don’t agree on the issue of direct increased risk of poor health, or that there is something very wrong with men. It is more likely a reflection of poor lifestyle habits and an accumulation of toxins that are affecting both sperm and overall health. EMFs , phthalates, and BPA clearly pose significant health risks. For example, phthalates deplete zinc, which could lead to conditions such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and accelerated aging.

That said, it is important that everyone understands the seriousness of the accumulation of EMFs, plastics, and other toxins in the body. Your health depends on on avoiding and clearing your body of these toxins. I recommend everyone follow a detox protocol and use caution with cell phones and other EMF sources.

What You Can Do Now

  • Don’t smoke or take drugs (even over the counter can affect sperm quality)
  • Limit or avoid alcohol
  • Manage stress
  • Stay active, avoid sitting too long, and maintain a healthy weight
  • Stay cool; avoid saunas, tight clothing, and placing heat-source objects such as cell phones and laptops near your privates
  • Avoid exposure to pesticides, plastics, heavy metals, and other environmental toxins (which includes takeout containers, pizza boxes, and even most dental floss)
  • Eat plenty of cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, radishes, etc), which help to detox plastics
  • Eat a colorful diet, full of fruits and vegetables
  • Consider Indolplex and calcium d’ glucarate, which detox plastic and other toxins (click on the links for brand recommendations)
  • Consider Bee Propolis, which contains the flavonoid chrysin, which is believed to block estrogen and increase testosterone; bee propolis also reduces the inflammatory response from EMF exposure
  • Re-read Simple Solutions for EMF Radiation Protection and the supplement recommendations above

If you are looking forward to having children, I suggest you see your doctor. S/he will likely send you for a semen analysis. However, in order to get an accurate assessment, you may have to repeat the test several times. This can be expensive and time consuming (plus some men are less inclined to visit the doctor for fertility issues). There is an at-home test kit called TRAK, that men can use to evaluate their sperm levels.

Life is a journey, just be sure that journey is on-course for a healthy life.

In your everlasting good health,

Elyn

Daily Consumption of Flavonoid-Rich Foods Protects Against Cancer and Heart Disease

In Alternative Cancer Therapies, Alternatives Cancer Treatment, Anticancer foods, foods for colon cancer, foods for breast cancer, antioxidants, Breast Cancer, Cancer, Cell Phones, chemotherapy, EMF's, EMFs and Health Risks, Radiation, Uncategorized on October 28, 2019 at 7:01 pm

Recent research conducted at Edith Cowan University found that people who eat moderate to high amounts of flavonoid-rich foods are less likely to die from cancer or heart disease.[i]

blueberries and walnutsFlavonoids are one of the reasons why it is so important to consume a diet full of colorful vegetables and fruits. (They also improve the efficacy of chemo and help protect you during radiation). As reported at the 2012 Integrative Healthcare Symposium in New York City by Dr Lise Alschuler, ND., F.A.B.N.O., and author of The Definitive Guide to Thriving After Cancer: A Five-Step Integrative Plan to Reduce the Risk of Recurrence and Build Lifelong Healthflavonoids exert antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, immune modulating, hormone balancing, blood sugar stabilizing, and cancer preventive effects. Importantly, you need to eat them every meal, as the effects only last for about 1-4 hours.

Flavonoids have also been shown to interrupt the inflammatory cascade initiated by EMF and Cellular Radiation Exposure. This is especially important with the rollout of 5G. (You may wish to read my article What You Need to Know About 5G: It’s Here!)

The dramatic results in the Edwith Cowan Study seem to be the strongest for those who drink alcohol or smoke cigarettes, both of which increase inflammation and damage blood vessels.  The best thing one can do is to quit smoking, limit alcohol, and consume a wide variety of flavonoid-rich foods daily. Studies show that smokers who eat plenty of vegetables and drink tea and red wine (but limit that too) substantially reduce their risk for cancer.  So, while you are trying to quit smoking, have some broccoli or a glass of wine with that cigarette.  However, this does not give you permission to continue smoking. If you drink alcohol regularly, please know there are some things that help mitigate the damages of alcohol consumption (but again, work on reducing consumption).

The Institute for Natural Healing provides the following recap for the Edith Cowan University study:

Dr. Nicola Bondonno, the lead researcher in the study, recommends this combination of flavonoid-rich foods and drinks in a daily diet:

  • One cup of green tea (not decaf)    apples
  • One orange
  • One apple
  • 3 ½ ounces of blueberries
  • 3 ½ ounces of broccoli (or a small handful of broccoli sprouts)

Combined, they provide a wide range of different flavonoid compounds and over 500 mg of total flavonoids. The study found that people who consumed around 500 mg of flavonoids daily had the lowest cancer and heart disease risk.

It can get monotonous to eat the same foods every day. The following are more food choices, grouped by the type of flavonoids they contain. Choose one or two from each type to eat daily for maximum benefits:

  • Flavonones: Grapefruits, lemons, tomatoes
  • Anthocyanidins: Strawberries, pears, cabbage, garbanzo beans, cherries, red wine
  • Flavones: Hot peppers, celery, watermelon, parsley, cantaloupe
  • Flavonols: Romaine lettuce, almonds, quinoa, sweet potatoes
  • Flavanols: Dark chocolate, fava beans, grapes, white tea

broccoli-sproutsThe bottom line is it is beneficial for everyone to eat copious amounts of flavonoid-rich fruits and vegetables daily, and to consume a wide variety.

 

For more information on cancer-fighting foods and herbs, please read my article published in the Archives of General Internal Medicine,Potential Therapeutic Effects of Phytochemicals and Medicinal Herbs for Cancer Prevention and Treatment”.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE REGARDING EMF RADIATION: While flavonoids are radio-protective, it is important to do more to protect our body parts.  Many people carry their phones in their pockets or place laptops on their laps (interestingly, the fine print on these devices recommends you not do this). There has been an alarming trend over the past fifty years showing rapidly declining fertility rates, often attributed to lower sperm counts and damage to female reproductive organs from EMF exposure near private parts. Further, people who wear their cell phones on their belt often have reduced bone mineral density. Other studies show that high doses of ionizing radiation can lead to bone marrow suppression and failure. Radiation- induced cancer is on the run. Teenagers and young adults are particularly at risk.

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.

Is this course for you? Are you determined to survive your cancer and live well? Are you looking for safe, non-toxic remedies for your cancer (alongside or without conventional treatments) that will support your body, build your immune system, and lower your risk of recurrence? Have a look at the full course description HERE.

Remember, when you enroll now and use this LINK, you get the entire course for only $149.

What You Need to Know About 5G: It’s Here!

In Cell Phones, EMF's, EMFs and Health Risks, Radiation, Uncategorized on October 7, 2019 at 4:11 pm

5G…It’s Coming, It’s Already Here. It’s Not Going Away! is the title of an article in the September edition of Dental Truth. The article contains an interview with William Cadwallader, a Certified Electromagnetic Radiation Specialist, and author of Exposed: The Electronic Sickening of America and How to Protect Yourself – Includes Dangers of 5G & Smart Devices . In the interview Cadwallader explains 5G (the fifth-generation cellular network technology) and the dangers of electromagnetic radiation frequencies (EMFs).

The new type of higher microwave frequency in 5G is not entirely new, as it is used in medicine and in airport security, but it is new for widespread, unavoidable, continuous general public exposure.

To summarize the interview, Cadwallader talks about how the cell phone industry is installing over two million small cells throughout the United States. The CTIA (Cellular Telecommunications and Internet Association) claims we as a nation must “do everything we can to maintain our wireless leadership.” While that might sound interesting, it does not take into consideration the potential serious health effects of 5G.

Cadwallader points out that in September 2017, more than 180 scientists and doctors from 36 countries appealed to the EU for a 5G moratorium and asserted that: “5G will substantially increase exposure to radio frequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF) on top of the 2G, 3g,4G, Wi-Fi, etc. for telecommunications already in place. RR-EMF has been proven to be harmful for humans and the environment.”

Unfortunately, the appeal was ignored and the roll-out in Europe and the US began. 5G will be everywhere, on every block in every city, and there will be no way to avoid it.

EMFs have been found to damage DNA and compromise the blood brain barrier (BBB). According to Cadwallader, according to studies done in 2008 and 2012, “The permeability of the BBB is increased resulting in dangerous chemicals and heavy metals that were never intended to enter the brain now having access”. EMFs also weaken the immune system and do so much more. The non-ionizing radiation in wireless radiation interferes with oxidative repair mechanisms, creating oxidative stress and altering DNA which can lead to cancer. To read more about the dangers, please visit my post Why EMF Exposure is a BIG DEAL and my other articles listed below.

How to Protect Yourself from 5G 

As one cannot escape the growing presence of EMFs and because it is impossible to function in the world without technology, it is important to take measures to reduce exposure. I speak of many of these in my posts (see below), but here are some of Cadwallader’s recommendations:

  1. Move all electronic devices as far away as possible at night (radiation travels through the air, from wires, and through walls)
  2. Always use speaker phone (your phone is always trying to connect to a cell tower)
  3. Turn OFF Wi-Fi and Bluetooth and turn on Airplane Mode when carrying your devices. Never use a Bluetooth wireless ear piece or headphones (they generate radiation even when not on a call or playing music)
  4. Remove any Wi-Fi router from your bedroom and living areas and if possible, turn it OFF at night if it is in your home office
  5. Hard-wire everything you can, including your printer, computer, keyboard, etc.
  6. Replace cordless phones with corded land-line phones
  7. Turn on Airplane Mode with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth OFF when you don’t need an internet connection
  8. Leave the room IF you use a microwave oven or better  yet, get rid of it
  9. Avoid using portable devices on your lap and turn all electronics off when not in use

In my previous posts (see below) I list various foods, supplements, and products that can help offset some of the risks of EMFs. Two more reputable products that I have come across are SafeSleeve anti-radiation cases for your phone and Lambs radiation-proof and anti-EMF underwear to protect your privates and testosterone levels (as featured in Mens’s Health, Forbes, GQ, and more). You may laugh at that one, but it is important to protect your privates (and ladies, need I remind you to keep your phone out of your bra and pockets? Lambs for ladies coming soon). In 2012 when I heard Dr Devra Davis, PhD, author of Disconnect: The Truth about Cell Phone Radiation, speak about the dangers of cellphones (I then interviewed her on my radio show as well as Lloyd Burrell, another EMF expert), she spoke of how in Israel they have signs over urinals reminding men not to carry their cellphones in their front pants pockets. The goal of the sign was to protect fertility, but it applies for so many reasons. Her book sold out completely at the conference, attended mostly by fellow PhD’s and medical doctors, and nurses. There are some good studies on the  SafeSleeve and Lambs sites as well as information on the dangers associated with wireless radiation. lambs

Natural Healing with Mike Carey

In Alternative Cancer Therapies, Alternatives Cancer Treatment, Energy Healers, energy healing, Epstein-Barr Virus, Radiation, Uncategorized on March 30, 2019 at 10:23 am

Looking for a natural solution for a ‘medical’ problem? Have a nagging issue you can’t resolve? Often times healers can be helpful as they have amazing gifts. I have been using several for over 5 years and am grateful to have them on my team. I am posting the following message for Mike Carey, who has been involved in alternative health since 1979, and who has helped me and my family many times.m Carey

“I am a Christian Missionary in Colombia and have been given a unique gift to be able to tap into cellular memory to find the cause of health problems as well as the natural remedy. Today, it is impossible to stay healthy for more than a week or two. The body is being attacked from so many directions at the same time. Some of those include Radiation poisoning from Fukushima (which is all over the US, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean.), GMO poisoning, (50% to 70% of the food supply is now GMO), Lyme Disease (now 3-4 varieties and numerous bugs carrying it), Hepatitis, Adrenal Exhaustion, Chronic Fatigue, Chem Trail poisoning, Salmonella poisoning, (from many sources now), Chronic pain, new virus´s that are continually being introduced (and probably coming from Chem Trails), emotional issues, fungal infections, and the list goes on.

Fortunately, over the years, I have developed proven, natural remedies for all of the above. I have also found a way to measure and improve the immune system using quantum physics and the resonant frequency of the immune system. I have checks and double-checks for everything with a very high success rate.

Part of my gift is to be able to test people over the phone via my toll-free number or via Skype for much of the world. Why does this work? Everything in the universe works by electricity and frequencies. Your body and the telephone work the same way. Frequencies also travel through the air or we wouldn’t have TV, WIFI, Cell phones, Radio, GPS, or even the automatic key fobs for unlocking and locking your car door I currently have clients in 26 countries.

Is Your Water Making You Sick?

About a year ago, I installed a water purification system from Israel that is incredible. It purifies and energizes the water in my whole house. I am able to test the energy level of water, and if it is negative energy, it is unhealthy, and if positive, it is healthy.  Most tap water, all over the world, is negative because it is full of chemicals, toxins, parasites, etc. Most of the bottled water being sold is just tap water and is negative. There are very few that are even positive. The best that I have found is a positive 20. The energy level of the water in my house is now positive 2200. The water itself has many healing qualities.  Here are just a few:

  1. It increases circulation
  2. It heals wounds or open sores
  3. Using it as an eye wash, my vision has improved 350% in just a few months.  What used to be just a blur without reading glasses, is now clear.  I have not had to use my glasses at all for the past 8 months or more.
  4. My mother-in-law was in danger of having her feet amputated due to bad circulation. I had her soak her feet in the water for 10 minutes per day, and in 2 weeks she had perfect circulation and a leg ulcer that she had on her ankle, for more than a year, was healed.  Most people do not realize that when they shower, they absorb water through the skin. If their tap water is negative, it is a source of many illnesses. The Israeli system has no filters or electricity, and comes with a 10-year warranty.  I recommend this system to all of my clients.” Mike Carey
