Natural Alternative 10,000 Times More Effective than Chemo

4

New research suggests that a common household food attacks cancer at the root.

A recently published study in PLoS indicates that a substance found in ginger called 6-shogaol is a potent agent in fighting breast cancer—much more potent than chemotherapy and much less dangerous.

Shogaol—from the Japanese word for ginger, shōga (生姜)—is special because it doesn’t merely target cancer cells in general, but cancer stem cells that are responsible for the growth of tumors. These cancer stem cells, while few in number, can self-renew, split off, and create new tumors, and are resistant to chemotherapy treatments.

Sayer Ji, writing for GreenMedInfo.com, noted that one of the reasons this finding is so significant is that while conventional techniques such as chemotherapy, surgery, and radiation reduce the size of tumors, they often fail to address the root of the problem, the cancer stem cells—not to mention the toll conventional treatments take on the body. If the “mother” cells are not eliminated, tumors grow back.

Ji makes another astute observation based on the studies findings. Natural substances like ginger, curcumin, and green tea

have been “time-tested” as acceptable to the human body in the largest and longest running “clinical trials” known: the tens of thousands of years of direct human experience, spanning thousands of different cultures from around the world, that constitute human prehistory.

As with so many other natural alternatives to conventional remedies (for instance, silver vs. antibiotics, vitamin D vs. flu vaccines), safer, cheaper, and often more effective treatments are rejected by the establishment in favor of patentable drugs that make lots of money for the companies that create them. Producers of natural products can’t even cite the underlying scientific evidence in many cases—like the study mentioned above—without facing fines or even jail. By law, only drugs that go through the FDA approval process at a cost of billions of dollars can make disease claims, and no one can afford to spend that money on natural as opposed to synthetic, patented substances.

    This I understand! I refused prostate surgery and radiation and take graviola and turmeric. With lot of three time experiments I know also to avoid excess sugar and dairy products. Now is the fourth time doctors expected me dead. It is not their fault for believing what pharmaceutical companies pay to provide their education, but a few actually know other options.

      No Gluten/dairy/soy/sugar/GMO…taking vitamins/good oils/minerals…probiotic…LDN..detoxing may help prostate/glands/help the immune system/help more nutrients absorb in intestines and more. Estrogen dominant from soy/BPA/hormones in meat/dairy may hurt and more. Progesterone may help men as well as women…help bones/sleep/help swelling of the prostate. Best wishes.

      This is what I do: No gluten/dairy/soy/sugar/GMO and vitamins/good oils, LDN and detoxing help me. Vit D3 5000IU, zinc 50mg if detoxing, 2000mg fish oil , 20000mg evening primrose oil. 2000 mg lecithin, Phosphatidylserine/DMAE, krill oil, CLA, Coenzyme Q10, Rhodiola, Mg citrate 400mg, Vit C, 5000mcg of biotin, Nature’s Plus- Source of life multiple, HCl and enzymes with meals, dairy free probiotic, Vit B12 methylcobalamin shot/spray/under the tongue kind/intrinsic factor kind, MTHF folate, coenyzme Q10, rhodiola, may help brain/body/thyroid/depression/immune system and more. Gluten is wheat/barley/rye..oats may act like gluten with avenin. GMO corn/soy/canola oil may hurt. Amour thyroid maybe needed since gluten may made antibodies to the thyroid. Coenzymated B vitamins far from synthetic kind make make me calm.

      Sunlight (helps the immune system and helps to heal the gut lining),exercise, organic food, good water..not tap water, cooking by scratch pure food….. no food in a box/bag/premade/label/restaurant which may help avoid hidden gluten. Certified gluten free food may have 20ppm of gluten…too much. Nuts not sold in the shell/meat basting/some spices may have hidden gluten and lotion/make up etc. One restaurant cooks special for me…rice/veg/tea/extra mushrooms (no meat since the woks may have MSG/gluten in them).

      EDTA/DMPS IV chelations from an Alternative doctor, 600mg of cilantro, organic sulfur, Now brand- Detox support, Far Infrared Sauna and more may help detox. Hair tests show good minerals and heavy metals. Heavy metals can block thyroid and other chemical reactions in the body/brain.

      LDN may help block hidden gluten/heal the gut lining and help the immune system, but the Celiac diet is still needed. 100% no gluten..no hidden or microscopic gluten may help. Cutting back on gluten or cheating by eating gluten hurts the immune system. It may take 1 1/2 months to heal the gut lining after getting hidden gluten.

      Amour thyroid has some T3 and Calcitonin. Synthroid is only T4..may not convert to T3. Zn/Se/enough iron/strong probiotic may help convert T4 to T3 for thyroid.

      Alternative doctors/chiropractors/acupuncturists and more may help with health/vitamins etc.
