My Anti-Cancer Treatments: Carrot Juice

From Ann Wigmore, Living Foods News:
This king of vegetable juices is extremely high in pro-vitamin A, which the body converts to vitamin A. It also contains vitamins B, C, D, E and K, as well as calcium, phosphorous, potassium, sodium and trace minerals. The alkaline minerals contained in carrot juice, especially calcium and magnesium, help to soothe and tone the intestinal walls, plus strengthen bones and teeth. Skin, hair and nails benefit from its high protein and mineral content. Fresh carrot juice stimulates digestion and has a mild diuretic effect. Perhaps its most important contribution to body health is its tonic and cleansing effect on the liver. Through regular use, carrot juice helps the liver release stale bile and excess fats. When fat levels are reduced, cholesterol levels are reduced.

There is no such thing as a toxic dose of carrot juice. While it's true that it's possible to "overdose" on vitamin A, it's impossible to overdose on pro-vitamin A - the precursor to vitamin A that is found in abundance in carrot juice. Pro-vitamin A is converted to vitamin A in the body. Drinking more than five glasses of carrot juice per week may cause the skin to yellow slightly; however this is simply a manifestation of the toxins that the liver is excreting. To reduce these effects, simply decrease the dose of carrot juice. Mixed with other juices, especially sprout and green juices, carrot juice acts as a balancing element. It adds a delicious, sweet flavor to juice combinations and increases both their digestibility and nutritional value. As an overall tonic and rejuvenator, carrot juice can't be beat.
Okay. Confession. I have been on a beta carotene bender for the past six weeks, and really have been turning a bizarre shade of yellow-orange. I have been drinking about a quart of carrot juice per day. I feel much better when I drink carrot juice. I believe it's because vitamin A increases intracranial pressure, and mine is very low. It also helps anemia, which I have, and poor night vision, which I also have, but I think I'll add some blueberries and see if I can tone myself down a tad.

I was going to post the picture below unedited, to show how orange my skin looks now compared to my friend Jason's skin, but it's a little embarrassing. Perhaps I will work up the courage in a few days.

For now, I'd rather just have some fun concealing my new true colors with Andy Warhol-like photo effects and pretending they are auras . . . .

Carrot Juice: Key To Rejuvenating The Liver:
Carrot juice is a specific for calcifying poor teeth and can correct faulty circulation.

In the treatment of disease it is important to alkalinize the body and carrot juice has been demonstrated to rapidly achieve this objective through cleansing of the liver and improving the quality of the blood. Carrot juice is very effective in correcting chronic infections such as tonsillitis, colitis and appendicitis. It has also been used in the treatment of anemia, blood poisoning, ulcers, rheumatism, acne and all forms of cancer.

Carrot Diet and Juice

Disease Proof: Lymphoma:
Population studies show an association between high dietary intake of carotenoid-containing fruits and vegetables and reduced risk of prostate, breast, and head and neck cancers. A high dietary intake of fruits and vegetables provides a spectrum of carotenoids, including alphacarotene, gamma-carotene, betacryptoxanthin, zeaxanthin, lutein, and lycopene. Vegetable juices (carrot, tomato, spinach, and other greens) represent a particularly potent form of carotenoids. Scientists have demonstrated that drinking carrot juice significantly reduces free radical damage to genes.
From: Carrots and The Candida Diet (See: Fungus As The Cause of Cancers):
Carrots are a very controversial food on the candida diet, I have seen one yeast infection diet say yes and the next say no. Now they are a simple sugar when digested, but they are also an antifungal and keep the yeast infection from spreading. I just had to go on what the Mycologists said on this one, which is to eat them, raw. If you cook carrots it raises the glycemic index to double that of a raw carrot.

Good candida yeast diet foods for breakfast: Grapefruit and vegetable juices are good, especially fresh carrot juice with a clove of garlic.

Diagnosing Dana: Exhibit 7

Abdominal x-ray showing two pieces of mercury dental fillings,
trapped in my appendix.

On March 18, 2002, I saw an infectious disease specialist to rule out any infectious cause for my Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I had been experiencing a lot of irritable bowel syndrome symptoms and sharp abdominal cramps over the last year and a half, as well as menorrhagia, hematuria and low back pain. He ordered an abdominal x-ray and CT scan for me. While undergoing these procedures, the radiology technician asked me if I had ever had any surgery performed in my abdominal cavity or had my appendix removed. I told her that I had not.

The docto9r called me a few days later to report that the radiology studies were normal.

Not convinced, I drove to Bristol Radiology about two weeks later to pick up the reports and scans and take a look for myself:

What did the radiologist mean when he said that these findings were not "significant"? I was experiencing debilitating symptoms that caused me to seek out an abdominal x-ray in the first place and look for any clues as to what might be causing these symptoms.

Is it normal to have sclerotic bone changes in the spine?

Is it normal to have two pieces of metal stuck in your appendix??

Do heavy metals cause sclerotic bone changes?

The doctor assured me that I did not have an infectious disease. Then shouldn't these sclerotic bone changes be biopsied to check for cancer?

This means that the two pieces of metal had been in my appendix for at least two years by the time my appendix was removed in August 2002.

After picking up the scans, I went onto the internet and googled "metal fillings in appendix" to see if perhaps those pieces of metal were responsible for, at the very least, my current IBS symptoms.

The first website that I clicked on was this one:

"Amalgam Illness: Diagnosis and Treatment"

I was absolutely shocked by what I read! Going through my entire medical history, I have had at one time or another almost every symptom of mercury poisoning. I did not know that dental amalgam contained mercury! I have had at least 20 fillings placed, drilled out and replaced during my lifetime, most when I was in high school and college, and I can remember going to classes immediately after a dental appointment and feeling extremely dizzy, as if I were going to pass out in class!

I also suffered from extreme shyness, anxiety/panic attacks and fine motor tremors that began in my early teens. I had my first four fillings placed when I was nine years old, and by the time I was 15, I had at least 10 of them in my mouth. Big ones. Most of my back molars looked like they were metal crowns, they had that much amalgam filling in them.

I was also very shocked to read about how the dental establishment denies that mercury poisoning from dental amalgam exists by claiming that mercury becomes stable when mixed with other metals and that the vapor released from amalgams is too miniscule to matter.

Why would they make these crazy false claims??

Are dentists also causing or contributing to our alarmingly high rates of cancer?

Check out this disturbing "Smoking Tooth" video on the IAOMT website:

Does this mean that anyone with amalgam fillings in their mouth is a smoker, whether they smoke cigarettes or not? Can you imagine if the Philip Morris company forced us all to smoke cigarettes? Our society would never allow it, especially now that we are informed about the health consequences of smoking. But that is basically what your own health care providers, your dentists, the people you trust your life to, are doing when they put mercury (or any other toxic or carcinogenic metal) in your mouth without informed consent.

Had I not had this abdominal x-ray done and were it not for the internet, I would have never found out about mercury amalgam poisoning and it's connection to so many illnesses! And I probably would have never believed it if it hadn't happened to me.

My Anti-Cancer Treatments: Vitamin D

This is a picture of me at my town beach getting a free dose of natural vitamin D from the sun!

In 2001, my vitamin D levels were very low at 11 ng/mL.

My vitamin D levels are now a very healthy 54 ng/mL!!!

Optimum levels for cancer prevention and treatment are between 34 and 60 ng/mL's, according to Dr. Mercola, who also claims that levels over 80 ng/mL's can actually increase your risk for cancer.

However, unlike with vitamin D supplements, you can not overdose of vitamin D from the sun, as your body automatically turns off the production of vitamin D when it has reached it's limit.

The benefits of obtaining vitamin D from the sun outweigh the risks of cancer.

The Vitamin D Council claims that current research indicates vitamin D deficiency plays a role in causing seventeen varieties of cancer as well as heart disease, stroke, hypertension, autoimmune diseases, diabetes, depression, chronic pain, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, muscle weakness, muscle wasting, birth defects, and periodontal disease.

Healing Cancer With Sunlight

Diagnosing Dana: Exhibit 6

Continuing my dental saga, I had the following blood abnormalities and diagnoses in the year 2001:

JANUARY 2001:Raynaud's Syndrome: I have had Raynaud's Syndrome since I was 15 years old. Raynaud's Syndrome is linked to mercury poisoning. After reading about mercury poisoning in 2002, I had my mercury fillings removed in 2002 and no longer have Raynaud's Syndrome.

Autoimmune Disease: Read about the link between mercury and autoimmune disease here.

I removed all of my mercury fillings in 2002, but my ANA titer did not change. However, after removing ALL of the toxic, carcinogenic and allergenic bridge and crown work placed in my mouth by Dr. Keefe, and undergoing chelation therapy and heavy metal detox, my ANA titer is now negative:

A positive ANA titer is seen in some lymphomas: Whether the relationship is causal or coincidental, the apparent importance of the possible relationship lies in the fact that the awareness of an underlying malignancy presenting with musculoskeletal complaints may allow for earlier recognition of an otherwise occult, but potentially curable neoplasm. Conversely, knowledge that a connective tissue disease may predispose to cancer may lead to early recognition of predictable malignancy.

I also had a swollen lymph node in my armpit that was found and noted in my physical exam records.

APRIL 2001:

Chronic sore throats. The sore throats would resolve only when the bridge placed in my mouth by Dr. Keefe was removed. I would later discover that the bridge broke when she installed it. It had a loose post and core and whatever was underneath it (infection and/or cancer) had been leaking into my mouth for THREE YEARS.

Night sweats are caused by Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, leukemia, lymphoma and AIDS. I tested negative to the AIDS virus.

JULY 2001:

Low Back Pain is seen in lymphoma.

Abnormalities of vitamin D deficiency and secondary hyperparathyroidism are common in patients with leukemia and lymphoma.

Hashimoto's Thyroiditis and sluggish adrenal function. This is also caused by mercury poisoning and has dissipated since removing my fillings and undergoing thirty chelation treatments.

My vitamin D levels were eventually brought up to 28 ng/mL with five doses of pharmaceutical grade 50,000 IU's of vitamin D3 by my endocrinologist, at which point he told me that that was all he could do for me and my visits were terminated.

He never told me that low vitamin D levels were found in all cancer patients and indicated a poor prognosis and survival, or that low vitamin D levels could lead to cancer.

AUGUST 2001:

Hyperinflation and air trapping. I had a completely normal CXR in October 1999. I became very short of breath after Dr. Keefe's dental work and even told my co-workers at the company I was working at when she did the work that I thought I had a "walking pneumonia", it was that bad.

Respiratory distress is a common sign of lymphoma.

The hyperinflation and airtrapping resolved upon the removal of Dr. Keefe's broken and toxic nickel bridgework in 2003, more than three years after it was installed.


A follow-up MRI performed at UConn by Dr. Alexandra Flowers confirms her belief that the 7 mm lesion is a lipoma:

Dr. Flowers states in her report: "Most certainly, the small lipoma does not account for her symptoms."


Because my internet research tells me that brain lipomas are always greater than 2 cm, I am not convinced by Dr. Flowers diagnosis, so I arrange for a follow-up MRI done by neurosurgeon Dr. Stephan Lange at St. Francis Hospital, who confirms my suspicions:

This limits the diagnosis of this lesion to inflammation, blood clot, infection or malignancy.

Hypercoagulation (blood clotting) is seen in occult or hidden cancers, including lymphoma.

Hypercoagulation is seen is some cancers, including leukemia

Mercury chloride causes hypercoagulation.

Mercury, aluminum and lead cause hypercoagulation.

Occupational exposure to mercury vapor causes hypercoagulation.

Hypercoagulability can be easily detected through the use of the well-known "sed-rate" blood test. Sed rate of less than 5 indicates hypercoagulability.

In 2000, my sed-rate was 4.

My sed rate is still 4, despite eliminating all exogenous causes of hypercoagulation such as heavy metals and stimulants, five years ago. Is my hypercoagulation being caused by an occult malignancy?

The "fat" (ddx: blood clot, lymphoma, etc.) involves a bone called the crista galla, which runs perpendicular to the cribriform plate. It is not in the brain.

However, I was never offered a biopsy of the lesion.

Instead, I am advised by my doctors to follow up with my dentist.

I still did not know at this time that Dr. Keefe had placed a nickel pin into my jawbone, into a tooth that was no good and directly over a potentially cancerous bone lesion and extraction site that had failed to heal . . . .

X-ray taken by Dr. Keefe March 2, 2000.
Photograph taken by Dr. Keefe, March 2 - April 3, 2000.


On December 5, 2001, I finally made a follow-up visit with Dr. Keefe.

Because her husband is a hematologist-oncologist at St. Francis Hospital, and because I truly believed that they were my friends, I was hoping that she can help me solve this dilemma.

She took this follow-up x-ray of her bridgework and the surrounding bone:

However, she never showed me this x-ray, which shows that the extraction site had still not healed, and the dark radiolucent bone surrounding tooth #30 was getting darker.

Instead, she assured me that everything looked great.

My Anti-CancerTreatments: Cesium Chloride

Cesium chloride is most commonly associated with High pH Therapy and cancer, due to the work of Keith Brewer, Nobel Prize winner Dr. Otto Warburg, and H.E. Sartori. They found that cancer cells thrive in an anaerobic (low oxygen) environment with low pH values, and that raising the cell pH makes it hard for cancer cells to survive. Cesium, being one of the most alkaline elements, has a high pH value and is readily taken up by cancer cells, thus raising their pH to a level at which they can no longer survive.

Cesium is able to eradicate cancer pain, especially bone pain, often within 12-24 hours.

It acts like lithium on the brain and helps with mood and depression.

Liquid cesium and potassium can easily be obtained over the internet. You need to order both, as cesium can deplete your potassium levels. They are very inexpensive.

Also, read "The pH Miracle - Balance Your Diet, Reclaim Your Health" by Dr. Robert O. Young, for tips on how build your immune system through an alkaline diet. This was the very first book I bought in the summer of 2003, right after I saw my MRI. Once you begin to feel better from taking cesium chloride, you will need to follow-up with an alkaline diet, or your symptoms will come right back again. Use cesium only until you get back on your feet again, and then use an alkaline, raw foods diet to maintain.

Listen to my dear friend Sebastian In The Morning tomorrow on WCCC 106.9 FM, between 6 am and 10 am.

He will be talking about cesium chloride and other alternative cancer treatments!

Use of Cesium Chloride to Cure Malignancies.

Read more here.

And here.

Use cesium chloride with SERRAPEPTASE for best results!

UPDATE: Sebastian called me (unexpectedly) during the alternative cancer treatments segment of his show this morning and put me on the air with him for about 10 minutes! I was so nervous for the first minute or two (I am a behind-the scenes kind of girl, who freezes up whenever the cameras or mike is on me), but once I got over the initial fear, I really started getting into it and I think I did okay overall.

It was a GREAT show. I hope he does more of them. Maybe I can convince him to do a weekly series on alternative health, as he has a very large audience in the morning of young people who need to become educated and informed health care consumers!

Leukemia, lymphoma, chronic fatigue syndrome, mercury poisoning . . . . medical and dental corruption . . . . it's all much more common than you would think.

Something's gotta change.

We need a natural health care revolution!!!

The Anticancer Diet: A New Way of Life

All of us have cancer cells in our bodies. But not all of us will develop cancer:

An interview with David Servan-Schreiber, MD, PHD.
Helping our natural defenses prevent and fight against cancer.

"The fight against cancer starts in the kitchen."

I guess this is one of the reasons that the French have the best health care system in the world.

When I was in Paris last summer, visiting my sister Stacy and her boyfriend Max, I had dinner with a woman whose young daughter had just come home with a homeopathic prescription for chest congestion. In America, she would have been give a pharmaceutical drug.

I was also a guest in the home of the head of marketing for a pharmaceutical company for three nights. He informed me that the pharmaceutical companies are losing money now as more and more advertising and health care dollars are being spent on consumer education and disease prevention.

The French also have fabulous food, and I am hoping to go back next summer with my boys.


À votre santé!

My Anti-Cancer Treatments: Sauna and Steam

Three years ago, I began to take a daily thirty minute sauna at my local YMCA, followed by a dip in the pool and a steam bath.

Taking a sauna is an excellent way to detox heavy metals, solvents, and other fat-stored toxins and carcinogens from the body.

It is an especially nice treatment during our cold New England winters.

I also include a 60 minute workout before hitting the sauna, for 30 minutes of cardiovascular exercise and 30 minutes of weight training.

After six months of daily treatments, and because my gym is seventeen miles away and the price of gas has skyrocketed since 2005, I now do these treatments 3-4 times per week.
