My Anti-Cancer Treatments: Pomegranate

Pomegranates are a RED HOT delicious fruit that is high in ellagic acid, a polyphenol with potent antioxidant, anti-cancer, anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-atherosclerotic properties:

Ellagic acid cancer treatment.

Punica granatum (pomegranate) and its potential for prevention and treatment of inflammation and cancer
(including lymphoma, colon, lung, prostate and breast cancers).

Pomegranate juice confirmed as miracle medicine for prostate cancer.

Pomegranate juice may help fight lung cancer.

Pomegranate seed oil causes breast cancer cells to self-destruct.

Pomegranate may also prevent and alleviate Alzheimer's:
Dr. Andrew Weill: 4 Reasons to Eat (or Drink) Pomegranates

Pomegranate ranked healthiest fruit juice.

I put whole slices of pomegranate (husk and all) into my veggie juices.

If you can't stand the taste of the husk, you can make capsules:
Pomegranates are harvested in California from late August until about
the middle of December. The husks are the best part of the
pomegranate because of the richness of their ellagitannins. The
fresh fruit is widely available during the season, but the price
starts to drop about this time of the year.

It is not necessary to go through the usual extraction process of
cleaning, percolating in water, blending, straining through
cheesecloth, extracting with an Amberlite XAD-16 resin column,
eluting with methanol, and rotavaping. It is far easier to just
section the husk into appox. 2 cm shards and sun dry. Oven drying at
low temperatures yields an overly dark and sticky product. After a
few days in the sun the pieces harden like weathered leather. I use
a Vitamix to quickly grind the hard chips to a powder for encapsulation.

I am increasingly teaching such methods in my seminars program at the
Del Mar, CA retreat center. The whole point is for you to wrest
control from those who would own your health and award this control
to a much more worthy beneficiary -- you.

My Anti-Cancer Treatments: The Budwig Diet

My breakfast this morning . . . .
The Budwig Diet - Flax Oil & Cottage Cheese

The Budwig Diet, which is very rich in omega 3 fatty acids, was created by six time Nobel Prize nominee Dr. Johanne Budwig as a cure and preventative for cancer and a whole bunch of other degenerative diseases including liver disease, heart disease, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, Alzheimer's, ADHD, chronic fatigue syndrome, migraines, autoimmune disease and diabetes.

It is so powerfully healing that it is recommended as a Stage 4 cancer treatment by cancertutor dot com.

How I Make My FO/CC (Flax Oil/Cottage Cheese):
  • Combine one part organic cold-pressed flax oil to two or more parts organic cottage cheese (or quark made from raw milk) in a small bowl
  • Mix with an easy-to-clean immersion blender (I got this one at Walmart for $10) until the consistency of whipped cream
  • Stir in freshly ground flax seed (use a coffee grinder) to activate, and organic fruit to taste ~ I mix in some pineapple (for protein-digesting enzymes) with the immersion blender and top off with organic blueberries.
If you have cancer, or any other serious illness, you want to work your way up to eight tablespoons of flax oil per day.

Two tablespoons of flax oil per day is sufficient for prevention of cancer or disease.

The Budwig Diet for Vegans:
Use Companion Nutrients in place of cottage cheese.

The Budwig Diet for Raw Foodists:
Cottage Cheese Made From Raw Milk
Quark Made From Raw Milk

The Budwig Diet for: Beating Myeloma

The Budwig Diet for: Lymphoma and Bone Cancer

Foods That Kill Cancer Cells - Flaxseed

My Anti-Cancer Treatments: Getting Adequate Vitamin D in the Winter

I think that the best source of vitamin D is the sun because you cannot overdose on vitamin D that comes from the sun. In the winter months, I use a tanning bed once a week to keep my vitamin D levels at about 50 ng/mL's.

How much vitamin D do we need in the winter?
"I take 5,000 units a day in the winter but I know what my vitamin D level is because I get it checked several times a year. If I had cancer, heart disease, Alzheimers disease, multiple sclerosis, or a hundred other common diseases, I might take more than 5,000 units a day—but I would check my calcium and vitamin D levels even more often. I would also follow my doctor's advice about standard medical treatment.

Keep in mind that if you use a sunlamp or a tanning parlor once a week during the winter, you don't have to worry about blood tests because your body will maintain adequate vitamin D blood levels. Just don't get burned.

Also, remember to take calcium tablets if you don't get adequate amounts of calcium in your diet—and most people don't. Trader Joe's sells a good Calcium/Magnesium/Zinc combination product for next to nothing."

And I just LOVE LOVE LOVE the eyewear . . . .

Years of research now suggest that vitamin D may actively protect against several forms of cancer by inhibiting cancer cell growth, causing apoptosis, and even by inducing cellular re-differentiation-the conversion of cancers cells back to normal cells.

Great Art: Agneta Perrson Hats

Den skön Agneta Persson

Pia Sjolin, Agneta Persson, Dana Herbert

Handmade hats by Swedish designer Agneta Persson.

Available at Pia's and Janice's.

I love the basic black hat with the tassles (how cute are they?). Very simple and elegant, yet fun at the same time. You can tie them up in a bow, close to your head, or let them loose and they will hang half way down to your waist. It is called "The Propeller" . . . . just take a spin and you will see why.

I love the orange hat because it is pretty funky and also because it is the color of carrot juice, my favorite juiced drink.

I can also get really creative with the orange hat . . . . wear some thigh-high avocado green snow boots and wear my hair in pigtails . . . . lots and lots of possibilities there.

So . . . . I splurged. I bought them both today.

Winter is not so bad when you have some really great hats to go out in.

Tack så mycket Agneta!

Health Care: Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Mother is held over 'mercy killing' of ME victim
Anna Davis

A POLICE worker's wife has been arrested on suspicion of the mercy-killing murder of the couple's seriously ill daughter.

Detectives are examining the exact circumstances of the death of 31-year-old Lynn Gilderdale, who died at her home in Stonegate, East Sussex, on Thursday.

Her 54-year-old mother Kay, who was also her full-time carer, was arrested on suspicion of murder and has been released on bail pending further inquiries.

Lynn's father Richard, who is separated from her mother, is an ex-police sergeant who still works for the police in a civilian role in Hastings.

Lynn was diagnosed with ME (myalgic encephalomyelitis) also known as chronic fatigue syndrome, in May 1992 and spent much of her life unable to leave bed, communicating with her family through sign language. Lynn's parents were united in grief this afternoon at the £400,000 bungalow where Mrs Gilderdale and her daughter lived. Speaking from the house Mr Gilderdale said: "We are grieving at the moment. This is a very difficult time for us. We would like to be left alone for now."

In an interview two years ago, Mrs Gilderdale revealed how doctors at a specialist clinic in London treated her daughter as an attention seeker with a made-up illness . . . . *


I wonder how much of Lynn's illness was caused by the health care industry - immune reactions to toxic metal dentistry in particular?

Chronic fatigue syndrome and nickel allergy.

My Anti-Cancer Treatments: Broccoli

My breakfast this morning:
Lightly steamed (not cooked!) broccoli with sliced raw garlic
and squeezed lemon.

Broccoli is a very powerful anti-cancer food (it's right up there with carrot juice) that works against breast cancer, prostate cancer, lung cancer, multiple myeloma, lymphoma, and even cancers of the organs like liver cancer.

It speeds up the removal of estrogen from the body (estrogen causes my migraines), regulates insulin and blood sugar, fights anemia, has as much calcium as milk, reduces cholesterol and has anti-viral and anti-ulcer activity . . . . so, it's just perfect for me!

Broccoli is great raw, but even healthier lightly steamed for 3-4 minutes (read the following article to see why) :

Maximizing the Anti-Cancer Power of Broccoli

Can Broccoli Juice Cure Cancer?

Broccoli Compound Targets Key Enzyme In Late-stage Cancer

(Very exciting read about benefits of broccoli in advanced breast and prostate cancers . . . . just published this week!)

My Favorite Broccoli Juice Recipe:
  • 3 or 4 broccoli florets
  • A little bit of the broccoli stalk
  • 3 carrots
  • ½ to 1 apple
