Vitamin C and Cancer – Research

“Many studies have been made over the years with the following results shown: Treatment with high-dose vitamin C slowed the growth and spread of prostate, pancreatic, liver, colon, malignant mesothelioma, neuroblastoma, and other types of cancer cells. Combining high-dose vitamin C with certain types of chemotherapy may be more effective than chemotherapy alone: Ascorbic acid with arsenic trioxide may be more effective in ovarian cancer cells. Ascorbic acid with gemcitabine may be more effective in pancreatic cancer cells. Ascorbic acid with gemcitabine and epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) may be more effective in malignant mesothelioma cells. Another laboratory study suggested that combining high-dose vitamin C with radiation therapy killed more glioblastoma multiforme cells than radiation therapy alone. Additionally the studies found that patients who received IV vitamin C had better quality of life and fewer side effects than those who did not.” — The Demster Clinic, Toronto Source: http://www.thedempsterclinic.com I get a lot of enquiries on Vitamin C and cancer from my previous entry on my Vitamin C IV drip experience. As such, I decided to share a bit about my summarized research on Vitamin C and cancer and why I was willing to let my mum (and myself – just for health …

How can Negative Ions help with Hypertension, Cardiovascular and Lung Diseases?

In my earlier article on negative ions, I explained why negative ions are generally good for us, how much negative ions we need vs how much we are actually getting, why negative ions help us fend off free radicals,  and how negative ions can improve immunity especially for cancer patients in particular. For most of us relatively healthy folks, negative ions can still help our health and PREVENT any major health issues from developing. I am compiling my research to summarize how negative ions can help improve various health conditions. This article will focus on Hypertension, Cardiovascular Disease and Lung Diseases. Negative Ions – Hypertension, Cardiovascular and Lung Diseases 1) The accumulation of fats leads to increased formation of free radicals and potential inflammatory reactions within the vascular cells and tissues. Further compounding the problem, accumulation of fats within the blood vessels also leads to narrowing of the blood vessels, resulting in overall increase in blood supply to other parts of the body. (1) Negative ions help in stabilization of the functions of the heart by promoting its muscle …

Recipe: Green Vegetable Juice

After my previous post on Juice Fasting, quite a few of you wrote to me to ask for recipes, so I have decided to combine what I learnt from the clinic and from different fruits I have been trying out at home into this recipe recommendation! Please note though – use only certified organic ingredients when juicing, otherwise you will probably be drinking concentrated pesticides/fungicides from the fruits in inorganic produce. If you are doing a juice fast, I recommend at least 4L/day as you would not be having solid food. If you are supplementing juice as a daily liquid sunshine into your lifestyle, I would recommend at least 1L/day for regular people and at least 2L/day if you have cancer/recovering from cancer as you need to constantly be giving your body alkalizing nutrition to build your immunity. As an overall rule, keep to 80% Base+Dark Leafy Greens, and 20% flavouring.

Feeling Positive about Negative Ions – Negative Ion Clothes from Japan

Specific disclaimer for this post: Negative Ion Clothing is NOT a medical device, a cure, a therapeutic tool, or medication. Nefful products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease and no warranty or representation is made in this post with regards to its ability to do so. This post is based on my own experience and personal research. You are advised to seek professional medical advice for your own health issues. To expose my mum to high density of negative ions to enhance her self-healing abilities, I got my mum negative ion clothes that are made in Japan in Singapore. These negative ion clothes have been around for ~60 years, and I cannot believe I never heard of them before this! I personally believe in the huge benefits of negative ions because within 1 month of exposing my mum constantly to 100,000-500,000 negative ions per cc/air everyday, I saw her cancer markers drop from 22 to 16.5! That was before we made changes to her diet and lifestyle so wearing the negative ions …

A Tale of Coffee Enemas, Wheatgrass and Probiotic Implants – Cancer Treatment

“What? Why do we need to put coffee up her a**?” That was my first response the first time I learnt about coffee enemas and that I needed to do it for my mum, so I COMPLETELY understand your response if you are thinking the same thing. But hey, if it is going to help her recover from cancer and I won’t lose her in 6 months, I am trying it! History of Coffee Enemas An enema is “a fluid injected into the rectum for the purpose of clearing out the bowel, or of administering drugs or food.” Enema comes from the Greek en-hienai, meaning to “send or inject into.” The earliest medical text in existence, the Egyptian Ebers Papyrus, (1,500 B.C.) mentions it; the Pharaoh had a “guardian of the anus,” a special doctor one of whose purposes was to administer the royal enema. [1] During the  17th Century, it was common practice in Western society to enjoy as many as three or four enemas a day. It is recorded that King Louis XIII had more than …

Breathing and Pilates Class – Cancer Treatment

I have been practicing Pilates and Breathing exercises for a while in Singapore, but I was a little surprised initially to see that the clinic also incorporated these lifestyle elements into my mum’s treatment plans. The health benefits of exercise is irrefutable for all of us really. “We confirm that there is irrefutable evidence of the effectiveness of regular physical activity in the primary and secondary prevention of several chronic diseases (e.g., cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, hypertension, obesity, depression and osteoporosis) and premature death…There appears to be a linear relation between physical activity and health status, such that a further increase in physical activity and fitness will lead to additional improvements in health status.” – -CMAJ, 2006 issue Exercise also helps to get more oxygen into my mum’s system so I definitely encourage all cancer patients to do some light exercises! My mum will probably enroll in Pilates and Taiji class when home to stay fit and healthy.

Insulin Potentiated Low Dose Chemo Therapy (IPT, IPLDT) – Cancer Treatment

Insulin Potentiated Low Dose Chemotherapy, also know as Insulin Potentiated Therapy (IPT), is not only one of the progressive ways to treat cancer, but perhaps one of the most unknown as well. Though I am no medical student, when IPT was first explained to me, it sounded extremely logical, and struck me as a much more effective and targeted way of killing cancer cells. My mum only felt slightly nauseous during her first IPT session though she didn’t throw up. But after they adjusted the anti-nausea IV dosage, she didn’t feel any  nausea at all or any other side effects throughout her 8 IPT sessions in 5 weeks. And amazingly, her cancer markers dropped steadily every week! All the medical information I will quote below are from Dr Lodi and Sensagent, both of whom gave me a very thorough scientific understanding of IPT. Why Insulin? All cells, including cancer cells, need glucose in order to produce the energy necessary for survival. Cancer cells have developed a very effective strategy (glycolysis or fermentation), to ensure they …

Exercise with Oxygen Therapy (EWOT) – Cancer Treatment

Nobel Prize Winner, Dr. Otto Warburg, discovered that: “the root cause of cancer is too much acidity in the body, meaning that the pH, potential hydrogen, in the body is below the normal level of 7.365, which constitutes an “acidic” state. Warburg investigated the metabolism of tumours and the respiration of cells and discovered that cancer cells maintain and thrive in a lower pH, as low as 6.0, due to lactic acid production and elevated CO2. He firmly believed that there was a direct relationship between pH and oxygen. Higher pH, which is Alkaline, means higher concentration of oxygen molecules, while lower pH, which is acidic, means lower concentrations of oxygen…the same oxygen that is needed to maintain healthy cells.” – ganodermareview.com And since exercise is good for everyone, especially for cancer patients, to stimulate their lymphatic system, the clinic combined Exercise with Oxygen Therapy (EWOT). This is the treatment that allowed for the most dramatic physically observable improvement for my mum. When she started EWOT, the health educator, Mr Jack Cross, started with only 8 units …

Ozone Therapy – Cancer Treatment

Ozone therapy, also know as O3 therapy, has been used to disinfect and treat diseases for over 150 years. Ozone contains three oxygen molecules, while the oxygen commonly breathed contains two.  Ozone therefore, is considered an energized kind of oxygen. Since cancer breeds in de-oxygenated body environment,  ozone therapy helps to increase oxygen circulation and the body’s ability to process and use oxygen in tissues and organs. “Ozone is also believed to increase artery wall dilation and relaxation, reducing effect of clogged or blocked arteries. It is also believed to help stabilize the immune system, especially for people suffering from autoimmune or allergic conditions.” – http://www.placidway.com You can find more on the scientific benefits here on the Journal of Natural Science, Biology and Medicine. Nobel Prize Winner, Dr. Otto Warburg, discovered that: “the root cause of cancer is too much acidity in the body, meaning that the pH, potential hydrogen, in the body is below the normal level of 7.365, which constitutes an “acidic” state.

B17 Laetrile – Cancer Treatment

B17, also known as Laetrile or Amygdalin, is naturally found in apricot kennels and almond seeds. It is also a highly controversial cancer treatment, with some claiming B17 to cause cyanide poisoning, resulting it being banned in the US. The way I overcame the fear that my mum would be poisoned by cyanide was to understand how B17 would work against cancer cells. When a Laetrile or B17 molecule meets a cancer cell, it is broken down into 2 molecules of glucose, 1 molecule of hydrogen cyanide and 1 molecule of benzaldehyde. This reaction occurs much more readily with cancer cells rather than non-cancer cells because: B17 molecule can only be broken down by glucosidase, which is 3000 times more abundant in cancer cells than normal cells. B17 has 2 glucose molecules, and cancer cells have 10-19x more insulin receptors, making B17 molecules attractive to cancer cells. FYI – a PET scan works  on the same principle – Radioactive glucose is first injected, and is taken up first by cancer cells, which cause any area …
