Graviola
An herb you may never hear about and won't find on the internet. This is quite a potent anti cancer herbs that healers know of. The National Cancer Institute performed the first scientific research in 1976. The results showed that Graviola's "leaves and stems were found effective in attacking and destroying malignant cells." Inexplicably, the results were published in an internal report and never released to the public...

Billion-dollar drug company hides astounding discovery of a natural cancer killer.
10,000 times stronger than chemo—but without the side effects!

If you found the secret to curing cancer wouldn’t you want to tell the world right away? Of course you would. You’d do whatever it takes to wipe out this killer disease… Well, it turns out one pharmaceutical company actually made the ‘discovery of the century’ – a miracle breakthrough that could save you or someone you love from the ravages of cancer. But…

They hid the secret for SEVEN FULL YEARS…with no plans to tell anyone about it ever! Why? Because the substance they found is completely natural… so they couldn’t take out a patent on it.

For seven long years they tried to artificially mimic the compound’s effect in the lab, but failed. Mother nature’s original is the only thing that worked. With no way to make money on the stuff, they locked away all their research…for good. Fortunately, one brave researcher came forward to break the silence—and tell the world about this true cancer cure.

Click on the link below to read the full story of this astounding breakthrough—and the dozens of other underground cures not yet available to mainstream medicine…

Turmeric
... Indians have known the magical medicinal properties of turmeric for ages. Ayurveda used it for the treatment of many inflammatory conditions and diseases like arthritic and muscular disorders. It was also used to tackle asthma, flatulence, colic and ringworm
... International interest in the neuro-protective potential of turmeric has risen after seeing its efficacy in traditional treatment in India. Over 90 scientific institutions in the United States are today studying the magical medical properties of the ancient Indian herb. Many of them are specifically studying how turmeric can inhibit growth of various types of cancer.
... Turmeric in India was always considered a magical herb. Indian folklore had always said that turmeric helped reduce inflammation. It was used as a blood purifier, anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, expectorant and skin tonic. It was used to treat measles, cough, sprains, and scabies.

An Email From One MD To Another MD

Post  Spock on Sun May 04, 2008 1:09 am

(Note: This is an email from Dr. William Wassell, M.D., to a fellow radiologist who had published an article in a medical journal. It details the sad state of affairs in the medical community. Dr. Wassell has kindly allowed CancerTutor to publish it online.)

Doc,

This may be a long letter but it should be informative and worth your time. Your comments in [Name of Medical Journal] about alcoholism and obesity and disability are the stimulus. From the article I can see that you are having some of the same questions about medicine today that I do.

I finished Diagnostic Radiology Residency in 1980 and about 10 years later I started having doubts about where we were going as a profession. I had seen the technology side make light-years of advancements while the treatment of disease had gone nowhere.

All medicine was about was parts replacement and symptoms management. Prevention and medical indication were being removed from the lexicon. Nutrition was becoming the "N" word of medicine. I started wondering where in the world I would go if I should need medical care?

For the next 10 years I only saw it get worse and began feeling that it was bordering on evil to continue to make advances in technology while ignoring cause and prevention. When articles would express concern over mammographic exposures I would think - where is the concern for chest CT which goes unregulated giving many young women the equivalent of 18 screening mammograms with each pass! By the time most women reach 40 they have already had breast exposures equivalent to 100's of screening mammograms.

Then around 2000 a friend got renal cell and I started looking on the Internet for potential new cures and things began to unravel. I found out for true that medicine is a business and industry and lags behind science anywhere from 50 to 200 years.

The first bomb that went off was when I found out that vitamin c is not a vitamin but a liver metabolite that is made in large quantities (50 - 200mg/kg) daily in the livers of all animals except for man, the Guinea pig, and a fruit eating bat. This has been known by biochemists since the late 40's.

In the early 50's it was shown in the guinea pig, who gets atherosclerosis like man, that no amount of cholesterol feeding would produce it if the animal was supplemented with vitamin c at levels produced daily by the animals that retain the ability to make it in their livers from glucose.

This is an inborn error of carbohydrate metabolism that has gone totally untreated for over 50 years now. It is also a disruptive science that destroys many medical industries built upon this error. [Nobel Prize winner] Linus Pauling repeated the experiment and presented it to a society of cardiologists in the early 90's. He also discovered that lipoprotein-a, which only occurs in the blood of non-ascorbate producing animals, is what starts the process.

Lack of vitamin c results in collagen fibers not being cross-linked with lysine and proline and weakens our connective tissue throughout the body. At areas of stress the intima cracks and these cracks are sealed by lipoprotein-a which had proline and lysine binding sites. Since this is a faction of blood cholesterol, lowering cholesterol levels too low predisposes one to hemorrhage when these cracks are not sealed--thus the hemorrhagic strokes it produces.

Researchers had known for years that vitamin c lowered cholesterol and in 1986 an article published in The Journal of Biological Chemistry showed how--by inhibiting HMG-CoA reductase activity. About 2 years later statins came out inhibiting the same enzyme. I wonder where the drug companies got the idea? Even I can see a certain chemical bond in both molecules that is peculiar and I bet it is what binds the enzyme rendering it inactive.

Vitamin c however does not inhibit the enzyme for CoQ10 synthesis which statins do. CoQ10 is in highest concentration in heart muscle and is very important in cellular energy production in muscle. You know what lack of it does to skeletal muscle and Merck even applied for a patent to include it with their statins in early 90's but has never exercised it.

Canada, by law, warns takers of statins to supplement CoQ10. The heart failure epidemic that has been a puzzle to the internists and written about in many medical journals is very simple to understand when you pay attention to the biochemists!! The only branch of medicine today that doesn't know this is the one we're in. Now, doesn't that make you proud? Let me touch on a few other things before I get to the obesity and alcoholism.

We give H2 antagonists and proton pump inhibitors to people for peptic disease and reflux. I even learned in med school that H+ was necessary for digestion and to activate gastric enzymes. Malnutrition from malabsorption eventually results, and also it allows bacteria and yeast to colonize the upper small bowel. Start taking a closer look at these on CT and go back to older text books to see what they should look like and you will find that what you have been calling normal is really abnormal in many people.

Malabsorption results in so many deficiencies that it produces a hay day for the doctor with his drugs to quell the symptoms while never addressing the underlying cause. This involves discussion using the "N" word which in now medically incorrect. I made a gastroenterologist mad by bringing this up.

Let us go on to type II diabetes. They say it's cellular resistance, well what is the cell wall made of? Fatty acids. Could that be the problem? Lets see, since 1900 omega-3 oils have been nearly eliminated [from our diets] while omega-6, trans fats, and hydrogenated fats have come to dominate. The biochemists know these fats become incorporated in the cell wall making the cell wall stiff and resistant to the passage of molecules in and out of the cell.

It was recently discovered that glucose happens to be one of the victims. When this occurs the pancreas puts out more and more insulin and compensates for a while but the insulin causes the body to store glucose as triglycerides and inhibits the release of fats for energy. Guess what, the person gets fat and sluggish and we have syndrome-X which later becomes type II diabetes.

Now I finally figured out why all or most adult onset diabetics were fat. This is text book biochemistry and metabolism, I am not making this up. So if a person is lucky enough to have grandma around still cooking real food he looks normal like you. If he doesn't and is lazy then he balloons up depending on his individual biochemistry as to how much. In other words it depends more on the source of the food rather than the amount that determines how much of a balloon you turn into.

Let's go to alcoholism. I only know the answer to this because of personal experience. I thought like you that this was obviously self inflicted and optional. I never could though understand why alcohol was so important to me and not to everyone else who drank. I could never accept the disease concept until I started doing my own research on it.

First, it is not the alcohol but the first breakdown product acetaldehyde that is the culprit. It has to leak into the blood in just the right quantities to not make you sick but enough to cross the blood-brain barrier. At this point it still may not work since not all people have the same brain chemistry. If you do then it condenses with dopamine to form THIQ (tetrahydroiodoquinolone) which is a substance more addictive than morphine. It was synthesized in the 40's as a cure for morphine addition but was found to be even more addictive.

From my own experience I had known that whenever I was taking narcotic pain killers I lost my desire to drink but I had never paid much attention to this because I knew this was no solution to a drinking problem. However, it did make me realize that only some people with the right chemistry could get this high from alcohol. This is obviously a genetically determined thing and thus a disease.

You know how people get addicted to any activity that increases brain endorphins. Well, if drinking alcohol is the activity that does it, then you drink more than others and more often. When I understood that I was getting a completely different high than others from drinking alcohol, it all made sense and the cure was simple--don't drink alcohol.

There was no more of this stupid character [nonsense] and self control issues to make up and try to deal with. I would say that this fact is less well known than the causes of atherosclerosis and type II diabetes.

It has taken me 3 years of research to compile the above to my satisfaction with references to many different scientific journal articles that back up the scientific facts that support my assertions. For myself I don't intend to wait or have the time left to wait for them to eventually make it into mainstream medicine.

Beyond the scientific ignorance there is the business and industrial end of medicine to correct and I'm not sure that can ever be done. The beast will eventually die from its own medicine--I just don't want to be taken down prematurely with it.

One thing before I go. You know the vaccines we learned about in med school that were suppose to contain a viral protein to which your immune system would respond by making antibodies and thus immunity to the virus. Well, what they didn't know was that many of the cell culture proteins and even unknown viral proteins are never filtered out of the final product.

These antibodies formed to these proteins circulate in the body and if they find similar proteins and respond by attacking, then you have the explanation for the autoimmune epidemic. As long as the profits roll in the drug companies will do nothing until they're caught. Vioxx is testimonial to this attitude.

Cancer is another big area where effective therapies are known but not used and even actively suppressed. This is the area originally that got my concern since I noticed without any outside input that nothing had changed in the 25 years since I had graduated from med school. The same barbaric treatments were still being applied. Nothing was being done to answer the question as to why the cancer rate had gone from about 1 in 50 lifetime occurrence in 1900 to 1 in 3 today.

The answer is obviously in something we breath, eat, or drink that differs today from 1900. Nobody even is considering this, they are looking instead for more deadly poisons to kill cancer rather than to prevent it.

The smoking thing they harp on is [nonsense] and just a smoke screen. If it is bad then it has to be something added to tobacco. People have smoked for centuries and lung cancer was rare in 1900. Any effort here is misguided to focus on tobacco, the focus needs to be on what chemicals tobacco companies are adding to it. I have heard that the companies have figured out a chemical formula to actually cause the nicotine to free base when smoked for quicker high and addiction. This seems to apply only to cigarettes since cigars when inhaled do not produce the same effect as cigarettes.

Medicines marriage to the chemical industry will insure that both suffer the same fate. Because of their money and control of politics and research funds you can just expect more of the same in the future. Turning hospitals into businesses for profit, and all the wasted time and energy going into satisfying JCAH requirements has put patient care in the sewer. All of the skills and talents we have learned in radiology today are simply being wasted. To me today the whole industry is just one big living joke.

I hope I have been helpful.

With kind regards, WM Wassell, MD

For those out there looking for supplements and sustainability............
Standard Process makes nice combination and glandular supplements and are all food based, you can't buy them from off the shelf so find a chiropractor or licensed practitioner who will sell to you.
http://www.standardprocess.com/display/router.aspx

Dr. Bob Marshall makes high quality supplements.
http://www.healthline.cc/

New Chapter and Megafoods are the two biggest brand names on the shelves and are made with food or plants. Of course, no one who works for these two companies will tell you that the base of all their vitamins are not food based, but are from big pharma. Guess it is too difficult to get a good potency vitamin from only food.
Also, New Chapter did something to their supplements, which REALLY upset me. Won't say what, since they treated me to dinner, and I think food is sacred. And they really do strive to work with mushrooms. But as we all know, all businesses who start out good, can eventually turn into.......

For those that don't want to support the corporations, sea products and superfoods are alternatives to taking vitamin/mineral supplements.
Luckily we have the option to grow all these foods that sustain us!! For now that is..........Non GMO seeds anyone.

This is from the mouth of the Breast Cancer Society:
Our mission is to educate people about breast cancer {EDIT}and to make women get mammograms.
So, what about finding a cure? pocketing the money, evidently.

Guess we better stop eating and breathing what they give us and take some kind of action. And know that their cancers CANNOT kill us!

The jokes on us, all these organizations already know the cure for cancer that's why they don't search for one.
What I meant is that we already have a cure for cancers. Finding out what is causing them, which is blantantly obvious..............
How can there be such blindness........

THIS HAS BEEN KNOW FOR A LONG TIME, BUT NOTHING WAS OR IS BEING DONE ABOUT IT.
The idea that too much animal fat and high cholesterol are dangerous to your heart and vessels is nothing but a myth. Here are some astonishing and frightening facts

Or read Dr. Ravnskov´s thought-provoking paper
"High cholesterol may protect against infections and atherosclerosis" It was published in Quarterly Journal of Medicine and has been the-most-read article in that journal for several months1 Cholesterol is not a deadly poison, but a substance vital to the cells of all mammals. There are no such things as good or bad cholesterol, but mental stress, physical activity and change of body weight may influence the level of blood cholesterol. A high cholesterol is not dangerous by itself, but may reflect an unhealthy condition, or it may be totally innocent.
2 A high blood cholesterol is said to promote atherosclerosis and thus also coronary heart disease. But many studies have shown that people whose blood cholesterol is low become just as atherosclerotic as people whose cholesterol is high.
3 Your body produces three to four times more cholesterol than you eat. The production of cholesterol increases when you eat little cholesterol and decreases when you eat much. This explains why the "prudent" diet cannot lower cholesterol more than on average a few per cent.
4 There is no evidence that too much animal fat and cholesterol in the diet promotes atherosclerosis or heart attacks. For instance, more than twenty studies have shown that people who have had a heart attack haven't eaten more fat of any kind than other people, and degree of atherosclerosis at autopsy is unrelated with the diet.
5 The only effective way to lower cholesterol is with drugs, but neither heart mortality or total mortality have been improved with drugs the effect of which is cholesterol-lowering only. On the contrary, these drugs are dangerous to your health and may shorten your life.
6 The new cholesterol-lowering drugs, the statins, do prevent cardio-vascular disease, but this is due to other mechanisms than cholesterol-lowering. Unfortunately, they also stimulate cancer in rodents, disturb the functions of the muscles, the heart and the brain and pregnant women taking statins may give birth to children with malformations more severe than those seen after thalidomide.
7HYPERLINK "http://www.ravnskov.nu/myth7.htm" Many of these facts have been presented in scientific journals and books for decades but are rarely told to the public by the proponents of the diet-heart idea.
8 The reason why laymen, doctors and most scientists have been misled is because opposing and disagreeing results are systematically ignored or misquoted in the scientific press.
9HYPERLINK "http://www.westonaprice.org/moderndiseases/benefits_cholest.html" The Benefits Of High Cholesterol
http://www.ravnskov.nu/cholesterol.htm
`I HAVE A QUESTION FOR THESE FOOLISH ONES WHO HATE THEMSELVES!!
WHY FEED A CRIPPLING FEAR ABOUT DEATH ONTO SUCH INNOCENT PEOPLE. IF YOU WANT TO ACT LIKE A GOD, FOR YOUR INFO, A GOD DOESN'T HATE THEMSELF.

Myrrh

Herb

AKA: Commiphora myrrha

Myrrh is the aromatic gum resin from a desert tree called the dindin of the genus Commiphora. The bitter-tasting, fragrant resin has been used for thousands of years as an ointment, perfume, incense and embalming fluid. As a wellness compound, it has been used to kill pain, heal wounds and neutralize bad breath. Myrrh oil benefits the respiratory tract, the digestive system, gum and mouth disorders, skin care and gynaecological problems.








Myrrh exudes from wounds or cuts in the stems and bark of several species of this shrubby desert tree. This sap forms a thick, pale yellow paste as it seeps out. It then hardens into a mass about the size of a walnut, taking on a reddish-brown color. The tannin content gives myrrh its astringent action. Myrrh acts as a broad-spectrum antiseptic and can be applied directly to sores and wounds. Myrrh is a beneficial treatment for loose teeth, gingivitis, and bad breath. It is antifungal, and has been used to treat athlete's foot and candida. Research indicates that myrrh is effective in reducing cholesterol levels. It is a tonic remedy said to relax smooth muscles, increase peristaltic action, and stimulate gastric secretions. The myrrh resin has antimicrobial properties and acts to stimulate macrophage activity in the blood stream. The herb is being studied for its potential as an anticancer medication. Taken internally myrrh is useful for relieving gastric distress and as an expectorant.

Oil properties
Myrrh oil has a warm, slightly musty smell and is pale yellow to amber in color. It is viscous in viscosity.

Myrrh oil is extracted by steam distillation of the oleoresin-gum (crude myrrh) and yields 3-5%.

The therapeutic properties of Myrrh oil are: antiseptic, anti-microbial, anti-phlogistic, anti-inflammatory, astringent, balsamic, carminative, cicatrizant, diuretic, expectorant, fungicidal, stimulant, stomachic and tonic.

Myrrh oil is effective against excessive mucus in the lungs; it helps to clear ailments such as colds, catarrh, coughs, sore throats and bronchitis.
It is helpful for diarrhea, dyspepsia, flatulence and hemorrhoids (haemorrhoids).
Myrrh oil is very good for mouth and gum disorders such as mouth ulcers, pyorrhea (pyorrhea), gingivitis, spongy gums and sore throats.
For the skin Myrrh oil could be useful for the treatment of boils, skin ulcers, bedsores, chapped and cracked skin, ringworm, weeping wounds, eczema and athlete's foot. Myrrh oil could be of help in cases of scanty periods, leucorrhoea, thrush and amenorrhea.
Burners and vaporizers
In vapor therapy Myrrh oil can be useful with: bronchitis, catarrh, colds and coughs.
Blended oil or in the bath
Myrrh oil can be used as a blended massage oil or diluted in the bath for: bronchitis, catarrh, colds, coughs and infections.
Myrrh oil can be used in a mouthwash for dental infections.
Cold compress and cotton bud
Myrrh oil can be used diluted on a cold compress for sores, skin care and wounds. It can also be used on a cotton bud directly on sores, wounds and for skin infections.
In Studies: Researchers at Rutgers University in New Jersey have discovered myrrh has anti-cancer properties.
The study explains that there is a protein called Bcl-2 that is overproduced in cancer cells and is thought to promote their growth. Myrrh contains a previously undiscovered compound, called sesquiterpenoids, which neutralizes Bcl-2.
According to this study, published in the Journal of Natural Products, myrrh might be particularly helpful in the treatment of breast and prostate cancer. Researchers noted that when myrrh extract was applied to human breast cancer cells in laboratory dishes, it killed all the cancer cells. While myrrh is less effective than current conventional chemotherapy drugs, it is a natural extract and will most likely be much less toxic to healthy cells, and cause fewer side effects than those products. The research is in the early cancer cell experimental stages. However, if you want to try it out for yourself, myrrh is available in many health food stores as an ingredient in various herbal supplements and natural toothpastes and mouthwashes. It can also be purchased as a tea and an extract. Follow the instructions on the label of the specific product you choose.
History: Myrrh is a small tree that can grow up to 16 feet with light bark and knotted branches, few leaves and small white flowers and native to Somalia, Arabia and Yemen. There is some documentation that some ancient civilizations may have even used the plant to combat cancer. Greek soldiers took a phial of Myrrh with them into battle, to help stop bleeding wounds.
When the bark is cut, the gum resin exudes as a pale yellow liquid, which dries into reddish-brown lumps the size of a walnut from which the oil is distilled.

Myrrh was very popular in the ancient world as medicine by the Chinese and Egyptians, and as part of the Egyptian sun-worshipping ritual, mummification and was used in cosmetics.
Technicals: The main chemical components of THE oil are: Myrrholic, Cinnamaldehyde, Cuminic, Eugenol, Cadinene, Pinene and Limonene.
Synergist: Myrrh oil blends well with Benzoin, Frankincense, Lavender, Sandalwood and Cloves.
Caution: Myrrh oil is non-irritant and non-sensitizing but could be toxic in high dosage and should not be used in pregnancy as it can act as a uterine stimulant.

As we know a lot of medicinal herbs grow like weeds and have many uses, not just for one symptom. This one can be used for other purposes, but I write about Yarrow as an herb females can take. I always suggest changing the diet a week before the menstrual cycle, and this should prevent any PMS symptoms, cramps, heavy bleeding etc.....

week before the menstrual cycle avoid these foods:
carbonated beverages, caffeine, fried foods or transfats and sugar in general, especially if is the bad kind. Try to eat good during this time in general.
Also a week before the cycle, take fish oil or good oils. These are great anti-inflammatories and great for reducing any cramps. Do not take these oils if you are a heavy bleeder, because they are blood thinners.
I have noticed in many women with problematic cylces that it is ALL related to what they eat. So avoiding the foods mentioned above would be good, if you want to get rid of any PMS symptom.


As for Yarrow contains sterols which have a hormone-like action and help to regulate the menstrual cycle. Yarrow reduces heavy bleeding and uteric congestion, and relieves heavy periods.
CAUTION:
Not for internal use during pregnancy as this herb is a uterine stimulant(Possible birth control as it does not support zygote growth in the womb silent or any growths for that matter. Luckily as you don't want fibroids in there. Wink ). Also avoid blue or black cohosh unless you are due and want to start labor, this is a wonderful way to do this, instead of letting the doctors give you drugs.
And if you are thinking of aborting, oh my..........DON"T ever take essential oils internally, unless under supervision. I won't mention these herbs, because I know their are irresponsible innocent's out there.
