What does it mean to have type 2 diabetes?

Most people think that type 2 diabetes is just about high blood sugar, but in reality type 2 diabetes means that your body is acidic and you are suffering from insulin resistance, atherosclerosis and cancer.

What Is Acidosis?

Acidosis

One of the main problems we face as we age is the inevitable build-up of acidic waste products in our bodies. We have an elegant system for getting rid of acidic waste products through the liver and kidneys, the lungs and the out-breath, the stomach acid, and the bicarbonate buffering system in the pancreas and blood. However, an unhealthy lifestyle can overwhelm the body’s ability to eliminate acids and they start to accumulate. If too many acids become stored in the body it becomes an acid burden that causes inflammation and pain. When the acid burden in the body is too much for the kidneys the acids remain in the connective tissues and organs causing inflammation and pain and eventually - perhaps even cancer. Acidity in the body is a major common denominator in almost all diseases.

When our bodies are excessively acidic, they borrow essential minerals such as calcium, sodium, potassium, and magnesium from our vital organs and bones to buffer or neutralize the acid. The result is our bodies suffer from prolonged degradation or corrosion which manifests into these dehabilitating conditions.

The reason is simple -- the average American diet contains way too much acid. Diet coke and other soda is probably the most acidic food people consume at a pH of 2.5. Beer and meat are at 3.5, then there’s diary, white pasta, most water, wine, hard alcohol, nuts and butters, beans, oils -- all acidic foods. All produce acid waste in our bodies that they can‘t handle.

The point of all this is, that if this condition of acidosis" is not acknowledged, if the above non-specific symptoms are not recognized and dealt with for what they are, then whatever health problem you are dealing with will only get worse.

Insulin Resistance

If you have insulin resistance, your body produces insulin but does not use it properly.

Insulin is a hormone made by the pancreas that helps the body burn glucose for energy. Glucose is a simple sugar and a major source of fuel for cells. Most of the food we consume is converted into glucose.

In the bloodstream, insulin helps glucose and other nutrients enter cells. However, if there is not enough insulin in the bloodstream to “unlock” the cells so that nutrients can get in, the cells literally starve to death.

When you are insulin resistant, your body requires extra insulin in order for this “unlocking” process to work. The pancreas will try to keep up with this increased need by producing more insulin, but eventually it will fail to produce the amount your body needs. When this occurs, the extra glucose will begin building up in your blood—a key diabetes risk factor—and type 2 diabetes will develop.

Insulin Resistance and is associated with a marked increase in cardiovascular disease (Stroke, Heart Attack, Peripheral Arterial Disease) and Diabetes Mellitus. It is a very common and dangerous medical problem that affects over 100 million Americans.

Bottom Line: Insulin resistance may cause a variety of diseases, including heart disease, diabetes, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, polycystic ovarian syndrome, Alzheimer’s disease and cancer.

Most people with insulin resistance don’t know they have it for many years—until they develop type 2 diabetes, a serious, lifelong disease. The good news is that if people learn they have insulin resistance early on, they can often prevent or delay diabetes by making changes to their lifestyle.

Most doctors are not going to test your insulin levels, but you can order an insulin and glucose test here.

Fasting Glucose and Insulin Blood Test:High blood glucose levels are associated with diabetes, neuropathy, eye problems, heart disease and stroke. Life Extension believes that an optimal range for fasting blood glucose is 70-85 mg/dL, and insulin should be less than 5 µIU/mL.

Insulin Fasting Blood Test:This blood test measures fasting insulin and is helpful in the diagnosis of insulin resistance and type II diabetes.

What is Atherosclerosis?

Atherosclerosis is a condition in which fatty material collects along the walls of arteries. This fatty material thickens, hardens (forms calcium deposits), and may eventually block the arteries.

The most common sites for arteriosclerosis are arteries in the brain, kidneys, heart, abdominal aorta, or legs. Symptoms of arteriosclerosis vary according to which arteries are affected. Leg pain when exercising might indicate peripheral arterial disease. Sudden weakness or dizziness could be caused by an obstruction in the carotid artery in the neck, which produces stroke-like symptoms. Chest pain or symptoms of a heart attack might indicate obstruction of the coronary arteries. Arteriosclerosis can also cause erectile dysfunction.

Researchers have discovered how diabetes, by driving inflammation and slowing blood flow, dramatically accelerates atherosclerosis. Experts once believed that atherosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries, developed when too much cholesterol clogged arteries with fatty deposits called plaques. When blood vessels became completely blocked, heart attacks and strokes occurred. Today most agree that the reaction of the body's immune system to fatty build-up, more than the build-up itself, creates heart attack risk. Most people with diabetes don't realize that they have arteriosclerosis until they have a heart attack or stroke.

What is cancer?

Cancer is a perfectly natural process. A very small percentage of cells in every person who has ever lived turn cancerous. And the body usually gets rid of those cancerous cells before they do harm. This process has been going on for eons. It is only when more cancer cells are being created than the body can get rid of that the problem comes. With increased toxins, viruses, carcinogens, etc. our immune systems have become significantly overworked and weakened.

The Diabetes-Cancer Connection

Cancer cells avidly consume glucose, and insulin is a growth factor that enhances cancer growth (many cancer cells have insulin receptors). People with insulin resistance, such as type II diabetics, and people with metabolic syndrome have high blood plasma levels of both glucose and insulin, which accelerates cancer growth. Women without diabetes who have had surgery for early-stage breast cancer have a greatly increased risk of cancer recurrence if their plasma insulin levels are high. Diabetes and resulting elevated insulin levels are associated with increased risk of many kinds of cancer, as well as with development of more aggressive and metastatic cancers that carry a grim prognosis.

Reverse Diabetes with the Mini-Fast Program by: Dr. Julian Whitaker

I advise all my patients with type 2 diabetes to lose weight and reverse their diabetes using my mini-fast with exercise program, or intermittent fasting diet.. Here’s how my intermittent fasting diet works:

You get up in the morning and drink a glass of water or a cup of coffee or tea. You can use a little creamer or low-calorie sweetener like xylitol or stevia, and you can take your supplements if they don’t upset your stomach. But do not eat breakfast or drink anything other than coffee, tea or water.

Do 20–45 minutes of moderate aerobic exercise—walking, jogging, cycling or whatever you enjoy doing.

After you exercise, get on with your day, but continue fasting until lunch. Drink water, coffee or tea. Don’t worry about being too hungry to make it through the morning. This fasting/exercise combo dampens the appetite, and the caffeine in coffee and tea helps blunt hunger as well.

At lunchtime, break your fast and eat normally for the rest of the day. Get plenty of lean protein and low-fat, low-glycemic carbohydrates. Be sure you make healthy, sensible food choices. You don’t have to count calories, but you don’t want to pig out at lunch or dinner, either.

After 12 weeks, the participants lost an average of nine pounds and an even more impressive 16 pounds of fat (25 percent of their initial fat mass) plus three inches around the waist. Additionally, the group’s fasting insulin fell by one-quarter, into the normal range.

Diabetic Teas

The ingredients in the following teas have demonstrated some benefits for managing type 2 diabetes. Enjoy one to three cups per day or as your healthcare provider recommends. Both black and green tea contain a small amount of caffeine, so you may want to have your last cup of the day several hours before you retire.

If you have diabetes, what I’m about to tell you could prevent you from having a premature heart attack, save your eyesight, kidneys, legs, and nerves—even save your life. Diabetes has a devastating effect on virtually every system in the body, which sets the stage for a variety of diabetic complications. But, as I will explain, this devastation is largely preventable.

Nutrient Losses Cause Diabetic Complications

Diabetes is a nutritional wasting disease. The elevated blood sugar levels that characterize diabetes cause excessive urination. In fact, diabetes mellitus is taken from two Greek words meaning “to pass through” and “honey,” referring to excessive glucose-laden urination.

High blood sugar levels, which are caused by either lack of insulin or insulin resistance (type 1 or type 2 diabetes, respectively), overwhelm the kidneys’ capacity to reabsorb glucose as well as all water-soluble nutrients. Elevated blood sugar levels essentially act like an osmotic diuretic, washing out virtually everything.

Every time blood sugar rises and urination increases, patients with diabetes lose water, magnesium, zinc, B12, B6, folic acid, and many other nutrients. Although water is replaced by drinking, nothing is done to replenish the water-soluble nutrients that are also swept out. Replacing Lost Vitamins and Minerals Is Critical

As a result of these continual nutritional losses, diabetes is our number one cause of blindness, amputation, and kidney failure, and it dramatically increases the risk of both heart attack and stroke. I believe that if you were to give a healthy person an osmotic diuretic every day without replacing nutrients, they would develop these (and other) diabetic complications. Let’s examine some of the nutrient losses and their consequences.

Pulse Oxymeter

Normal blood oxygen levels are considered 95-100 percent. Between 90 and 95 percent, your blood oxygen level is considered low but it is not necessarily indicative of a health issue. If the level is below 90 percent, it is considered low resulting in hypoxemia. Most people with cancer will have low oxygen levels.

The link between oxygen and cancer is clear. In fact, an underlying cause of cancer is low cellular oxygenation levels.

In newly formed cells, low levels of oxygen damage respiration enzymes so that the cells cannot produce energy using oxygen. These cells can then turn cancerous.

Taking Minerals

The importance of mineral salts Calcium (Ca) Phosphorus (P) Magnesium (Mg) Potassium (K) Sodium (Na) Chlorine (Cl) Sulphur (S) Iron (Fe) Copper (Cu) Zinc (Zn) Molybdenum (Mo) Iodine (I) Fluorine (F) Selenium (Se) Cobalt (Co) Manganese (Mn)

These are essential minerals. The body can't make them so you have to include them in your diet.

Not consuming enough alkaline Mineralson a daily basis could be the single most damaging thing you could possibly do to your health. And yet 99% of us never get enough.

So, the healing process, no matter what is wrong with you, begins with RE-MINERALIZATION. The only way you can replace these minerals is by consuming fruits and vegetables. You can take mineral supplements but these only work temporarily. These type of minerals are basically ground up rocks and cannot be incorporated into the body cells. Plants can digest rocks, people can't. We have to eat our fruits and vegetables

The following health conditions are the most common and serious diabetic complications. I believe that diabetic complications can and should be treated individually using natural measures, in addition to treating the diabetes itself. By Dr Julian Whitaker

Diabetic Retinopathy

I believe the best way to protect your eyes from diabetic retinopathy symptoms and other diabetes-related eye problems is to make sure you’re getting nutrients that support the health of your blood vessels.

Here’s why. When blood glucose levels remain elevated for an extended time, sugar molecules can attach to protein molecules in a process called glycation. This process creates irreversible cross-links between adjacent protein molecules and forms new structures called advanced glycosylation end products (AGEs).

Among other things, AGEs can cause the collagen in our blood vessels to become stiff and inflexible. The tiny vessels in our eyes are particularly susceptible to this type of damage. However, there are two nutrients that can help maintain your healthy vision. L-Carnosine for Healthy Vision

L-carnosine is a natural combination of the amino acids beta-alanine and L-histidine. In addition to being a potent antioxidant, it is considered the strongest glycation-inhibiting agent ever discovered.

Carnosine competes with proteins for binding sites on sugar molecules, which helps limit glycation and further protein damage. Furthermore, carnosine is believed to bind and modify AGEs that have already formed, which helps our cells target them for removal.

One of the best ways to take L-carnosine is by using special eye drops that contain it. The suggested dose is 1 to 2 drops in each eye daily. If you have a degenerative eye condition, check with your physician before using them for healthy vision. Grape Seed Extract as a Diabetic Retinopathy Treatment

Grape seed extract is a powerful antioxidant that protects blood vessels and capillaries from free-radical damage. Research also shows that grape seed extract can specifically help prevent diabetic retinopathy symptoms.

When taking grape seed extract, base the dosage on your body weight. For the first week, take 1 mg per pound of body weight (round up or down to the nearest 50 pounds), in divided doses with meals. After the first week, continue with a diabetic retinopathy treatment maintenance dose of half this amount. For example, if you weigh 210 pounds, take 200 mg a day for the first week, and then continue on 100 mg a day.

Both L-carnosine and grape seed extract work best as diabetic retinopathy treatments in combination with a good multivitamin.

Everyone should take a potent, antioxidant-rich daily multi, but this is especially true for people with diabetes. Diabetes causes a lot of nutrients to be lost through the urine, and a good multi will help replace those losses and promote healthy vision.

Blood Clots

Diabetes increases the risk of plaque buildup in the arteries, which can cause dangerous blood clots. Nearly 80 percent of people who have diabetes will eventually die of clot-related causes.

4 steps to clearing away dangerous clots by Dr. Jonathan Wright

JVW: Presently, my recommendations for breaking up clots are:

Nattokinase — two 138-milligram capsules every four hours to start. Then, as your condition improves, you can taper off to one capsule every four hours, eventually taking only one capsule three times daily.

Fish oil — 1 tablespoon three times a day to start, tapering off to 1 tablespoon, twice daily after some progress is made. Eventually, you will be able to take a general maintenance dose of 1 1/2 tablespoonful daily.

Vitamin E (mixed tocopherols) — 400 IU, three times a day to start, tapering down to 600 IU daily.

Vitamin C — 2 grams, three times daily to start, then taper down to 1 gram, three times daily. Vitamin C isn’t a “clotbuster” itself, but it should always be included when your body is under stress.

Treatment for Diabetic Neuropathy

Diabetic neuropathy is one of the most common complications of diabetes. It is generally assumed that you can prevent it by maintaining good control of your blood glucose levels; however, it still occurs frequently.

Although there is no effective conventional treatment for diabetic neuropathy, there are nutrients that can help slow down, stop, and even reverse its progression (as well as one other alternative solution). Try these in addition to a potent, antioxidant-rich daily multivitamin.

Treatments for Diabetic Neuropathy

B vitamins. Patients with diabetic neuropathy are often deficient in B-complex vitamins. Be sure to take 1,500 mcg of B12 daily, in addition to 150 mg of B6, which helps prevent diabetes-related damage to the nerves, blood vessels, kidneys and eyes. Also, benfotiamine, a fat-soluble, highly absorbable form of thiamine (vitamin B1), has been shown to reduce diabetic pain and improve nerve conduction velocity. Take 150–450 mg per day.

Alpha lipoic acid is an extraordinary antioxidant that has been shown in clinical studies to improve diabetic pain, burning, numbness and other symptoms of diabetic neuropathy. Antioxidants are particularly important because diabetes unleashes a storm of free-radical damage, which plays a key role in the vascular and nerve damage that underlie diabetic complications. Take 600–1,200 mg per day.

Fish oil. For years, people with type 2 diabetes were advised to avoid fish oil because of its presumably negative effects on blood sugar control. However, a recent meta-analysis of prior studies found that fish oil doses ranging from 3,000 to 18,000 mg per day had no harmful effect on blood glucose control—and significantly improved triglyceride levels.

Furthermore, inflammation is a factor with diabetic neuropathy, and fish oil has natural anti-inflammatory properties. I recommend taking a minimum of 2 g of high-quality fish oil per day.

Gamma linolenic acid (GLA) has been shown in studies to prevent the deterioration of diabetic neuropathy and, in some cases, even reverse the condition. Borage and evening primrose oils are the best sources of GLA. I recommend supplementing with evening primrose oil at a starting dose of 500–1,500 mg per day.

Acetyl-l-carnitine improves nerve function, stimulates nerve fiber regeneration and relieves diabetic pain. Take 500–1,000 mg per day.

Peripheral artery disease (PAD)

Step 3: Take Targeted Supplements

Deficiencies of vitamins A, C and E increase risk of PAD, and a low blood level of vitamin D was shown to raise risk by 80 percent. That’s why everyone, regardless of health status, should take an antioxidant-rich multivitamin and mineral supplement every day.

There are also several other supplements that target the underlying issues associated with PAD. The ones I recommend to my patients include:

Ginkgo biloba, an herb with mild blood-thinning effects that is a popular PAD therapy in Europe. In a recent German study, researchers gave patients with moderate PAD and intermittent claudication 40 mg ginkgo supplements three times a day for 24 weeks, and their walking performance significantly increased. I recommend taking 120 mg of ginkgo per day, in divided doses. Caution: Do not take ginkgo if you are on Coumadin (warfarin).

Propionyl-L-carnitine, an amino acid. In a year-long clinical trial, this supplement improved walking distance in patients with relatively severe PAD by 44 percent compared to placebo. I suggest taking 2,000 mg of propionyl-L-carnitine daily, in divided doses. Inositol hexaniacinate, a form of vitamin B3 and no-flush cousin of niacin, has also been shown to extend the distance PAD sufferers can walk prior to the onset of debilitating pain. I recommend taking 4,000 mg of inositol hexaniacinate per day, in divided doses.

I suggest trying these one at a time and giving each a two- or three-month trial until you find what works for you. Other supplements you may want to consider are:

A special seaweed extract (Seanol) and nattokinase (an enzyme present in the Japanese fermented food natto), both of which help normalize fibrinogen and other clotting factors in the blood. This is important because the poor blood flow to the extremities associated with PAD increases the risk of blood clots, which can lodge in narrowed arteries and cause serious complications, including death. These supplements also improve overall circulation. Use as directed. Caution: Do not take nattokinase if you are on Coumadin (warfarin).

Vitamin K2 is active in the bones and soft tissues, escorting calcium into the bones where it belongs and out of the arteries and other soft tissues. When you have deficiencies in vitamin K2, calcium can build up in and contribute to hardening of the arteries. Dutch researchers have discovered very strong links between vitamin K intake, arterial calcification and cardiovascular death. I recommend taking 100–150 mg of vitamin K2 (the MK-7 form) daily. Caution: Do not take vitamin K if you are on Coumadin (warfarin). Fish oil has anti-inflammatory, anti-platelet and cardio-protective effects, which is why I recommend taking 2–5 g of a high-quality product daily.

Cardiovascular Health And Heart Disease

Of all the beneficial nutritional supplements you can take, Omega-3 Fish Oil is at the top of the list. It represents the biggest bang for your buck. Regular use can reduce your risk from sudden death heart attack by 50–80%. Sudden death heart attack is the single largest cause of death in the U.S., coming in at 325,000 adult deaths each year. All you need do is take 2–3 g of Omega-3s (as DHA and EPA) per day. Make sure the supplements you take are double distilled with added antioxidant protection (vitamin E, fat-soluble C, and diosmin).

Omega-3s also reduces death from arrhythmias, including ventricular fibrillation (the most commonly identified arrhythmia in cardiac arrest) and tachycardia (when heart rate exceeds normalcy). Omega-3s also diminish thrombosis (formation of blood clots), and thus helps prevent myocardial infarction (heart attacks)

Omega-3s can also inhibit the development of atherosclerosis, Surprisingly, the average intake among Americans through the food supply is minuscule. And by the way, the body cannot make DHA or EPA, so supplementing is crucial.

Also, way up on the list of preventative supplements is CoEnzymeQ10. This oil-soluble, vitamin-like substance is present in most cells, primarily in the mitochondria. It is a component of the electron transport chain and participates in aerobic cellular respiration, generating energy in the form of ATP. Ninety-five percent of the human body’s energy is generated this way. CoQ10 improves chronic heart failure symptoms and reducing major cardiovascular events. One study showed a 44% reduction of mortality. You should also know that statins inhibit the production of CoQ10.

Then there is natural thyroid hormone. Analyses of studies show that even subclinical hypothyroidism poses substantial risk for coronary artery disease. Taking a thyroid supplement can reduce this vulnerability.

Still focusing on Heart Disease, a good bet is to add pomegranate juice to your diet. As little as 8 oz per day of sugar-reduced pomegranate juice can improve myocardial perfusion in those with coronary heart disease. Pomegranate juice can also inhibit an enzyme that causes vasoconstriction. It also reduces systolic blood pressure, while it raises the activity of HDL, the good cholesterol, and protects it.

Not to be missed also is vitamin B3, aka Niacin, This B vitamin can reduce total cholesterol, reduce LDL (the bad cholesterol by 25%, triglycerides by 50%, and at the same time increase HDL, the good cholesterol.

Dr. Ward Dean, the renowned bio-gerontologist has remarked that Niacin has been shown to reduce non-fatal heart attacks by 26% in just 6 years. At the same time, it reduced strokes by 24%, and reduced mortality, adding two more years of life.

Many nutrients support cardiovascular health. However, if you have type 2 diabetes, these five—when taken in addition to a high-quality daily multivitamin—are especially helpful.

Some of the nutrients specifically address the cardiovascular side effects of excess blood sugar—namely stiffened arteries and blood vessels, thickened blood, and impaired circulation. The others help address an important consequence of impaired circulation, which is the delivery of nutrients to cells.

No one wants to talk about constipation. But it’s a chronic problem that undermines the health of millions of Americans. Are you one of them?

Given that 63 million Americans have sluggish bowels, and that constipation can undermine our energy, digestion and detoxification, that it can fuel inflammation and create the breeding grounds for chronic disease, it’s definitely time to throw open the bathroom door and shed some much-needed light on the condition.

Ground flax seeds – hands down, this author finds that the best way to ensure sufficient fiber and to keep things moving at a gentle pace is to take a daily supplement of 2-3 Tbsp. of ground flax seeds mixed with 1 Cup of fluid (e.g. milk or “yogurt milk”). Ground flax seeds also provide much needed omega-3, and its superlatively high lignan (phytoestrogen) content very effectively controls hormonal balance (especially during menopause).

Scientists stunned as seed shrinks breast tumors in weeks

Barlean's Organic Forti-Flax Premium Ground Flaxseed 28 oz - Vegan

If you’re engaged in a fight against breast cancer — or know someone who is — I hope you will take the opportunity to read and forward today’s e-Tips. Because researchers from Germany may have uncovered a powerful breakthrough that could help turn the tide on breast cancer forever.

In fact, the new study shows that a simple seed that’s so widely available you can begin using it TODAY may shrink tumors, stopping them from spreading…in effect making your breast cancer much less aggressive. Even more incredible, it could start working these near miracles in mere weeks!

Flaxseed, also known as linseed, is an ideal source of dietary fiber, omega 3 fat, and lignan. Actually, it is the richest source of lignan on earth. It has lignan levels that are 100-800 times higher than any other plant source. Lignan has been shown in many studies to reduce the size of cancerous tumors in rats and mice, and has been used with success in treating both breast and prostate cancer in humans.

That means flaxseeds are more potent than virtually any other plant source when preventing and fighting cancer.

.

The research supports the idea that flaxseed, particularly flaxseed with high quantities of lignan is beneficial for not only preventing cancer, but treating it when it occurs.

One important thing to note is to make sure that you get flaxseed with high properties of lignan. Sometimes when flaxseed oil is pressed, the lignan is removed, so be careful of this when adding flaxseed to your diet.

So what can you do to get more flaxseed in your diet?

There are two ways to ingest it—whole or ground.

The Mayo Clinic recommends ground over whole flaxseed because it is easier for your body to digest. Whole flaxseed can pass through the intestines undigested, which means that your body will not get all of the benefits from eating it.

Still, some flaxseed is clearly better than no flaxseed in your diet, so as long as you make sure the flaxseed you are taking has lignan in it.

Ground flaxseed is easy to put into foods…you can add it to smoothies, condiments, bake it into cookies and breads…even putit into your breakfast cereal.

You can sprinkle whole flaxseed on top of soups, salads, and yogurt for added crunchiness and a nutty taste.

Flaxseed oil can also be mixed with cottage cheese, and this is the foundation of the Budwig Diet, one of the most popular anti-cancer diets on the planet. The mixing of the oil and cottage cheese allows for the chemical reaction to take place between the sulfur protein in the cottage cheese and the oil, which makes the oil water soluble for easy absorbsion into your cells.

The Proven Cure and Prevention for Cancer the Medical Establishment Doesn't Want You to Know (Part II)

There are tons of ways to get creative about how you get flaxseed into your diet…and the best part is, you can get flaxseed in bulk (whole or ground) in many grocery and health food stores.

The research shows it is well worth the effort to get more of this super seed into your diet…don’t miss out on one of nature’s most powerful cancer beaters!

Flaxseed could be a game-changer, friend. It could have the power to permanently alter the way we treat breast cancer, and may help women find relief from the twin heartbreaks of radiation and surgery. The best part is that you can find flaxseed in just about any health food store and add it to your own diet for just pennies a day.

Could you really beat breast cancer with just one flaxseed muffin a day? Research says it may be worth a try. Have a chat with your doctor about whether it makes sense to start incorporating flaxseed into your cancer-treatment plan.

Iodine a promising breast cancer treatment

Rub away cancer?

Q: A friend of mine said she read a few years ago in your newsletter that iodine can be used to treat breast cancer. How is it administered?

Dr. Wright: Iodine kills breast cancer cells without killing off normal cells in the process. In other words, it’s ideal for both the treatment and prevention of breast cancer.

A suggestion for you and your doctor to consider: Put the treatment right onto the problem! Mix a solution of 50 percent iodine/50 percent DMSO and rub it directly onto your breast as near as possible to where the cancer is (or used to be). The DMSO will ensure penetration deep into the tissue. A 70-percent DMSO solution is widely available, and iodine is available by prescription as Lugol’s Iodine and in natural food stores and the Tahoma Clinic Dispensary as Triodide (from Scientific Botanicals). If you’re worried about the breast cancer spreading, you can also rub the mixture into the area under the arms that is rich in lymph glands (nodes) where breast cancer spreads first.

But please don’t do any of the above without consulting a physician skilled and knowledgeable in the use of high-dose iodine!

You should also be sure that your physician monitors your thyroid function and gives you other nutrient suggestions while you use iodine as an adjunct to your regular breast cancer treatment.

Modified Citrus Pectin

EcoNugenics PectaSol-C Modified Citrus Pectin 270 Vegetable Capsules

The annual gathering of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) is considered the world’s most prestigious cancer forum. More than 25,000 oncology experts attend this meeting, and the media eagerly reports on meaningful advances in cancer prevention and treatment.

At the 2013 ASCO meeting, findings from a study were released that underscored how effective certain natural compounds can be as a prostate cancer therapy.

In this placebo-controlled, double-blind trial of treatment-refractory prostate cancer patients, a four-nutrient supplement resulted in a 63.8% median reduction in the increase of PSA levels (Thomas 2013). The PSA marker is used by oncologists to determine progression or regression of prostate cancer, and to evaluate whether treatments are working or failing.

In the study presented at ASCO, patients with a PSA relapse after radiotherapy or surgery for localized prostate cancer took two daily capsules containing pomegranate seed, broccoli, green tea, and turmeric. Over a six-month period, median PSA levels increased only 14.7% in the supplement group—compared to 78.5% in the placebo group (Thomas 2013)! PSA levels remained stable, or below, baseline values for a compelling 46% of the supplement patients—but for only 14% of the placebo patients. Pomi-T�, 60 vegetarian capsules

Fighting Cancer Metastasis and Heavy Metal Toxicities With Modified Citrus Pectin

Certain malignancies (like brain tumors) kill by infiltrating into healthy tissues, but the vast majority of cancer deaths occur when tumor cells enter the blood and lymphatic systems and travel to the liver, lungs, bones, and other distant parts of the body.

Unfortunately, there have been few effective approaches to preventing cancer metastasis. The encouraging news is that a specialized fruit polysaccharide called modified citrus pectin has demonstrated unique properties in blocking cancer cell aggregation, adhesion, and metastasis.

Clinical research shows that modified citrus pectin helps limit disease progression in men with advanced prostate cancer. In addition to its cancer-inhibiting effects, modified citrus pectin shows promise in chelating toxic heavy metals that can be so damaging to overall health.

Here, we’ll explore how this novel compound offers such distinctive and protective effects.

What is Modified Citrus Pectin?

The American Cancer Society recommends that adults eat five servings of fruits and vegetables each day in order to help reduce cancer risk. One way to get some of the benefits of citrus fruits such as oranges and grapefruits is with modified citrus pectin.

Pectin is a naturally occurring substance found in the cell walls of most plants and especially concentrated in the peel and pulp of citrus fruits (lemons, limes, oranges, and grapefruits), plums, and apples.

Researchers attempted to find a process to alter pectin to create a food supplement that would allow the body to benefit from its various health-promoting properties. Recently, scientists have been able to use pH and temperature modifications to break down pectin’s long, branched chains of polysaccharides into shorter, unbranched lengths of soluble fiber molecules that dissolve easily in water. The result, modified citrus pectin (MCP), is a substance that is rich in galactose residues, which are easily processed by the digestive system and absorbed into the bloodstream. Scientists continue to refine MCP in their quest for a more active and effective agent. Preventing Cancer Metastasis

Modified citrus pectin is thought to be useful in the prevention and treatment of metastatic cancer, especially in solid tumors like melanoma and cancers of the prostate, colon, and breast. Scientists believe that MCP works by inhibiting two key processes involved in cancer progression: angiogenesis and metastasis. Preventing Cancer Metastasis

Angiogenesis is the process in which cancer cells establish their own blood supply to fuel their growth. Metastasis occurs when cancer cells break away from the original tumor, enter the bloodstream or lymphatic system, and form a new tumor in a different organ or other parts of the body.8 Secondary or metastatic cancers often pose more life-threatening circumstances than the original tumor.
