The following are some powerful anti-cancer supplements, products and books that I have found helpful in my own cancer journey– I recommend them as a user, not a promoter, doctor or expert.

There are many excellent products and books, but as people have asked for specific brand recommendations, I have compiled a list with direct links for purchase for some that I know, use and trust.  Keep in mind that supplements are intended to supplement–you can’t supplement your way out of a poor diet.  When it comes to supplements, there is no perfect one; but there are some that are better than others. For more information on the benefits and limitations of supplementation,  dietary recommendations or information regarding natural estrogen management, please consider the recommended reading list below or schedule a consultation.

This information is for educational purposes only. It is not intended to treat, cure, prevent or diagnose any diseases or conditions. These recommendations do not represent medical advice, and I encourage you to discuss this information with your integrative oncologist or naturopathic doctor.  Supplements are intended to supplement a healthy diet–they are not a replacement, and may contain additional ingredients. It is always advisable to discuss the use of supplements with a naturopath, integrative or functional medical doctor before use, as often supplements may interact positively or negatively with other drugs. The information provided is from my research and not to be taken as scientific evidence or medical advice or as a replacement for medical advice.

By FTC rules bloggers who receive cash or in-kind payment are deemed endorsers and so must disclose material connections they share with the seller of the product or service. Please know that the links I provide can be either affiliate or unpaid resource links. The links I provide are to make shopping simpler, and most often go to products I use personally or have used personally. While I may earn a small commission for linking some of the products to this site, it in no way affects the price to you, my reader. Plus, you can use this information and purchase the items from your local store.

Can’t find what you need? Vitahealth Apothecaries  in New York City carries a wide range of high-quality supplements, and yes, they do deliver and ship.

Estrogen Management:  Natural Alternatives to TamoxifenNatural Alternatives to Tamoxifen YouTube;  Natural Alternatives to Aromatase Inhibitors

  • Estrogen Dominance Saliva Test for Hormone Balance – 2 Tests
  • Flaxseed supplement: Brevail — Supports healthy breast tissue and estrogen balance. The phytoestrogens in flax block estrogen receptors thus inhibiting cell growth and division. It contains secoisolariciresinol diglucoside (SDG),  which  is an antioxidant phytoestrogen abundantly present in flax, but is also found in sunflower, sesame, and pumpkin seeds. Another option is NuLignan which contains an lignan extract from Norway Spruce Trees.
  • DIM:  Diindolylmethane (DIM) is a phytonutrient and plant indole found in cruciferous vegetables including broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower and kale, with many powerful anticancer properties–especially for cancers influenced by excessive estrogen levels, such as breast, uterine and prostate. DIM is an aromatase inhibitor. Smokey Mountain (soy free)Nature’s Way – Dim-Plus ;   DHT Block – DHT Blocker Supplement, which has many other anti-cancer ingredients in it as well, or DIM PRO.
  • Button mushrooms contain natural aromatase inhibitors, substances that can block the production of estrogen in the body. See Magical Mushrooms below.
  • Quercetin–is a natural aromatase inhibitor and aids in the removal of excess estrogen from the body. Consider onions, apples, red grapes and red wine or take a supplement. It also stimulates liver function to detoxify estrogen and other carcinogenic agents.
  • Calcium D-Glucarate— supports estrogen metabolism (do not take with Salvestrols)
  • Pumpkin Seed Extract–studies show it can reduce aromatase by 50% Pumpkin Seed Extract. Pumpkin seeds are delicious too!
  • Vitamin E is crucial to maintaining a healthy balance between progesterone and estradiol. Take a daily mixed tocotrienol/mixed trocopherol supplements containing alpha, beta, gamma, and delta tocopherols (often found in formulas extracted from rice bran oil) Pure Encapsulations – Vitamin E (with mixed tocopherols)
  • Magnesium is another key nutrient for increasing progesterone levels, as it plays an important role in maintaining a healthy hormonal balance in the body
  • Intravenous or Liposomal vitamin c therapy may help raise progesterone levels (progesterone is needed to oppose estrogen and maintain balance)
  • Liver Support: Please see the section below on detoxification as the liver is responsible for keeping the blood clean and neutralizing toxic substances, including excess estrogen. Think of your liver as a filter that neutralizes toxic substances so that they can safely be excreted from the body. Also, studies show that women with genetically impaired estrogen metabolism function may have a higher risk of breast cancer. (For more information on Estrogen Metabolism/Detoxification please replay Managing Genetic Mutations
  • Progesto-life, paraben-free progesterone cream
  • Evening Primrose Oil  helps to balance hormones and supports hair regrowth
  • Female/Male Saliva Profile I – Test Kit For 5 Hormone Level Imbalances

  • Female/Male Saliva Profile III – Test Kit For 8 Hormone Level Imbalances

Detoxification/Glutathione Boosters–Glutathione is your body’s most powerful antioxidant and has even been called “the master antioxidant.” It is found inside every single cell in your body. Glutathione helps eliminate pesticides and heavy metals and protects the body from oxidative stress. Glutathione promotes detoxification processes in the liver and protects the liver from toxin-induced damage. Glutathione also helps treat cachexia.  Whey, N-acetylcysteine (NAC), Milk Thistle, and SAMe boost glutathione.  The overall top food for maximizing glutathione is high quality whey protein. NAC neutralizes toxins in the liver because of its ability to boost glutathione levels, chelates heavy metals, supports lung tissue and scavenges free radicals. Milk thistle is an excellent source of the antioxidant compound silymarin, which may help to prevent glutathione depletion in the liver.  SAMe enhances the production of glutathione, and may support the joints and brain as well. Schisandra strengthens the liver and increases glutathione production. Consider eating more cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, broccoli sprouts, kale, collards, cabbage, etc.) as well as garlic, green tea, turmeric, and whole eggs as they contain phytonutrient- detox-boosting compounds and are rich sources of glutathione.  Add them to your diet daily. Oral glutathione supplements have not proven efficient, but research shows some promising efficacy with Liposomal Glutathione*; IV Glutathione is an excellent option, but can be quite expensive.*Some formulas of Liposomal Glutathione must be shipped and stored refrigerated. Pure Therapeutics Glutathione Gold does not appear to need this, same for Recancostat.

Other great detox foods are cilantro, celery, parsley, dandelion greens, citrus peels, pomegranate, artichokes and rosemary. You may experience certain side effects when your liver is detoxifying, such as fatigue, muscle pains, headaches, diarrhea, and flu-like symptoms. These symptoms can be reduced by increasing your fluid intake, preferably by drinking more water.  A tall glass of lemon water first thing in the morning helps to cleanse the liver. Exercise (sweat out those toxins) and stress reduction also play a key role in detoxification.

Vitamin D–By its name, vitamin D may sound like a vitamin,  but it is really more of a sun hor­mone–a chem­i­cal that we make on our skin from sun exposure. It is a hor­mone like thy­roid, estro­gen or testos­terone and it acts more like a hormone with receptor sites on healthy cells and even more on cancer cells.   A deficiency plays a crucial role in increased risk of cancer and a number of other illnesses, including those that are viral-based. Fat soluble vitamins, such as vitamins K2, A and E, all work synergistically for optimal health and are necessary for optimal use of Vitamin D.  Remember that fat-soluble vitamins should be taken with a healthy fat in order to be absorbed. Vitamin D also helps the body absorb calcium; it is critical to have sufficient Vitamin K2 in order to ensure that calcium is bound and held in bones and at the same time is removed from our arteries, joints or other tissues where it doesn’t belong. K2 also provides defense against fluoride calcification in soft tissue organs such as the arteries and brain. Vitamin K2 also inhibits cancer cell lines, such as colon, breast, leukemia, brain and many more.  (K2 is also a natural aromatse inhibitor) Read more: https://elynjacobs.wordpress.com/2014/04/07/searching-for-answers-for-cancer-patients-the-wrap-up/.

Magnesium is necessary to convert vitamin D into its active form so that it can turn on calcium absorption. That can often mean that we might not need extraordinarily high doses of vitamin D, but rather a combination of vitamin D along with magnesium and other nutrients to make the vitamin D work efficiently. Like vitamin K2, magnesium helps to preserve bone structure by drawing calcium out of the blood and soft tissues back into the bones. Magnesium: Ancient Minerals Magnesium Oil ;  Pure Encapsulations Magnesium (glycinate)Natural Vitality Natural Calm, Lemon.

Medicinal MushroomsMagical Mushrooms; Power Against Cancer

  • Bacopa Monniera: Improves memory and combats stress  Bacopa monniera
  • Holy Basil: New Chapter Holy Basil Force (New Chapter was a great company, but sadly was bought by big pharma) Holy basil possesses significant anti-inflammatory and immune boosting properties that protect against stress and protect vital organs like the liver. The phytochemicals in holy basil help prevent chemical-induced skin, liver, oral and lung cancers because they increase antioxidant activity, alter healthy gene expressions, induce cancer cell death, and help prevent angiogenesis. Holy basil protects normal tissues against the destructive effects of radiation therapy, lessening radiation-induced DNA damage. (Holy basil is included in Barlean’s Organic Oils Olive Leaf Complex
  • Magnolia Extract: Nutricology Magnolia Extract Powerful antioxidant, but mostly known for its anti-stress and cortisol-balancing effects. Contains honkiol, a compound from magnolia bark with multiple anti-cancer functions, including tumor cell death. HonoPure : Promotes cellular health as well as long term maintenance for breast, prostate, lung, colon, blood and other areas of cellular health.
  • Passion Flower: Gaia Herbs Passion Flower Liquid Phyto-Capsules  Passion flower is useful as a soothing sleep-aid and in supporting relaxation in times of stress.

Avemar  Ave Ultra (Avemar Fermented Wheat Germ Extract)  is a naturally fermented wheat germ extract that has exhibited positive effects against all forms of cancer cell lines tested. Research at UCLA has demonstrated that Avemar reduces glucose flow into cancer cells—which inhibits their ability to produce additional nucleic acids and subsequently reduces their proliferation. In the presence of Avemar compounds, cancer cells begin to utilize the available glucose to produce substances that actually inhibit cell division and stimulate programmed cell death (apoptosis) within the tumor.

Boswellia: Also known as frankincense, is a potent anti-inflammatory nutrient with numerous health benefits.  Studies have shown that it provides significant support to the liver, and researchers have found that boswellia changed epigenetic function so that impaired tumor suppressor genes started functioning again. Nature’s Way Boswellia ; Thorne Research – RadoQOL.  Cancer patients can have increased cerebral inflammatory response due to radiotherapy to the brain. Boswellia helps protect brain tissue, reduces inflammation and edema-related discomfort.

Vitamin C: Pure Radiance C 90 Vegetable Capsules. Vitamin C supports immune function, kills cancer cells, boosts the production of progesterone, and detoxifies the body.

Therapeutic high-dose Vitamin C: Intravenous vitamin C (IVC) treatments for cancer have proven to be highly effective at killing cancer cells. Intravenous vitamin C is a pro-oxidant drug that helps produce hydrogen peroxide, which targets neoplastic cells while leaving normal cells unharmed. Vitamin C also does more than just kill cancer cells, it boosts immunity. The body can only assimilate a limited amount of vitamin C when taken orally, although I have seen great results with Liposomal Vitamin C (you may need as much as 13,000 mg to 18,000mg to achieve the same benefits as 50 grams IVC. With Lypo-Spheric, you may only need 6-8 grams (6000-8000 mgs) Test strips.) A  G6PD test is recommended before any IVC infusions are given. To boost the efficacy of this treatment, you may want to take Sodium Ascorbate  in conjunction with the liposomal C. HDVC for Cancer

CLA (Conjugated Linoleic 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 and rosemary 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. May modulate immune and inflammatory responses.

CoQ10 —  used by the body’s cells to produce the energy they need to grow and stay healthy and also boosts the immune system. CoQ10 is also an antioxidant that protects the cells from harmful free radicals. Free radicals can cause damage to the DNA of a cell which is often linked to the cause of cancer. CoQ10 protects the body from the harmful effects of free radicals; hence, reducing one’s risk of developing cancer. Importantly, it may then help prevent some of the damaging side effects from chemo drugs, including tamoxifen. It may help those taking tamoxifen by improving the function of antioxidant enzymes, which could help mitigate oxidative damage, and it has been found to reduce chemotherapy-associated damage to the mitochondria of the heart. THORNE RESEARCH – Q-Best 100

Tea:  I love Traditional Medicinals Teas.  Beyond green,  Traditional Medicinals, Organic Green Tea with Lemongrass, 16 count wrapped tea bags (pack of 6),  look for Traditional Medicinals Organic, Peppermint, 16-Count (Pack of 6), Chamomile and Roasted Dandelion.  Chamomile and mint soothe the stomach and relieve bloating and indigestion. Chamomile also calms the mind and helps people relax and deal better with stress. Mint has anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory properties, helps prevent damage from radiation, cuts off the blood supply to tumors, and may protect your liver too. Both mint and chamomile contain apigenin, which has been found to induce programmed cell death in a variety of breast cancer cells and increases the effectiveness of Taxol chemotherapy. Dandelion is an excellent liver detoxifier.  You may also like  Traditional Medicinals Organic Smooth Move (for constipation), Traditional Medicinals Organic Nighty Night and Traditional Medicinals Pau D’Arco Herbal Tea.  As with many herbs, it is often a good idea to use them for a few weeks and then take a break, and this is the case with Dandelion and Pau D’ Arco.

Avoid light at night: It’s important to block out all light in your bedroom, such as clocks, nightlights and outside lighting.  Habitual light at night during sleep increases breast cancer incidence by 22%. (see below). Use black-out shades or a sleep mask:

Tranquility Therapeutic 100% Silk Sleep Mask; Eye Mask Hypoallergenic, Facial Eye Beauty; Black

Swissco Satin Sleep Mask Leopard Print

In addition, avoid using the computer or any electronic device at least two hours before bed.  The light emitted from these devices prevents your pineal gland from releasing melatonin, a critical sleep and repair hormone that is produced in response to darkness; melatonin also reduces the production of estrogen in the body. Melatonin is closely linked with the circadian rhythms that govern our sleep/wakes cycles, which are involved in many physiological processes, including the expression of specific genes. A disruption in these cycles and/or a deficiency of melatonin will increase your risk of hormone-related cancers.  Get to bed early as melatonin release is at its strongest from about 10pm to 2am. Read more: Light at NightTotal Darkness During the Night is a Key to Success of Breast Cancer Therapy or for purchase (Kindle is $1.00) Great Sleep!

tigerIf you must use your techy gadgets or read in bright light prior to bed, consider donning a pair of these sporty glasses that can help block out the blue component of light that seems to most problematic.  Find them at www.lowbluelights.com .

The Emotion Code The Emotion Code method helps a person to find emotional baggage (using muscle testing) and release it, something that is very important in the healing of cancer. Our emotional baggage consists of actual energies, the energies of intense emotional events that we’ve experienced that are still stuck in our physical bodies. These energies distort the normal energy field of the body, creating pain, malfunction, all manner of disease, and even cancer. In addition, these energies (trapped emotions) are the driving force behind PTSD, depression, anxiety, phobias and all manner of mental illnesses.
