Metabolic therapies include natural, botanically based substances that target cancer based upon cancer cells’ metabolic (enzymatic) limitations. Hence, the cancer cells die while the healthy cells are either completely unaffected or enhanced. These are all intravenous therapies and are well known in alternative / integrative circles.
IPT, or low dose, targeted chemotherapy is necessary for some people and is used in conjunction with the metabolic therapies in order to overwhelm the cancer cells’ enhanced ability to develop resistance.
Vitamin C acts as a pro-oxidant in high concentration, and some hydrogen peroxide is formed which is rapidly disposed of by catalase in a normal cell. Since cancer cells have a deficiency or lack entirely of catalase the peroxides kill the cancer cell.
The mechanism of action for artesunate in the context of cancer therapy is very well defined. Cancer cells have a tendency to absorb iron at high levels and this is thought to accelerate the mutation rate within these cells. Iron reacts with oxygen to form free radicals, which are reactive molecules that damage DNA. Artesunate activates mitochondrial apoptosis by iron catalyzed lysosomal reactive oxygen species production. Artesunate use the iron within the cancer cells against them.
Glutathione is a very powerful antioxidant that protects the body by targeting and destroying reactive oxygen molecules and free radicals. It neutralizes harmful free radicals, flushes away toxins, supports cell health and integrity, has a big role in DNA and protein synthesis. It is administered intravenously and it can be used as a lifetime supplement. It has an initial loading dose of 6 sessions. Can be done either twice or three times a week. After the 6 sessions can be continued once a month.
Amygdalin (B17) is a natural substance (a nitriloside) found in certain plants that is highly and selectively toxic to cancer. It is not actually the amygdalin itself that is toxic to cancer cells but rather the way… Read More
It’s an antioxidant that recycles vitamin C, promotes aerobic cellular metabolism and regenerates cells through repair and making new healthy cells.
Ozone Therapy (MAH)
Ozone is an anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral agent and Ozone Therapy offers an alternative without the toxic side-effects of antibiotics. By increasing the oxygen level in blood, it oxygenates the tissues in the whole body. As a portion of the blood is mixed with oxygen and ozone, it increases the oxygen saturation of the blood and stimulates anti-inflammatory enzymes needed to neutralize cancer cells. Not only does it positively affect the appearance of our skin, but it also helps our body’s healing process. It supports blood and liver detoxification, is anti-aging and boosts the immune system. It is administered intravenously or rectally. For therapeutic purposes, a program of 10 sessions is recommended.
We are all inundated with heavy metals. Heavy metals are metals from the environment which have no physiological role and therefore must be eliminated. They, in fact, replace the normal positively charged trace elements, like selenium, zinc and copper, etc, which are required for the normal functioning of the body’s millions of enzymes engaged in over 1,000,000 reactions every second. When they displace these necessary trace elements, the enzyme systems can no longer function. Turning off the enzymes throughout the body is like turning down the ‘metabolic switch’ that keeps the body functioning. This results in the inability of the immune system to function, the nervous system (brain and peripheral nerves) lose their ability to function with the speed necessary for effective functioning and utilization of memory and other skills which define, “thinking”, our hearts, kidneys, livers, and all other organs begin to slow down and in effect, the whole dance of life begins to grind to a sluggish, crawl. Both (Na)2EDTA and CaEDTA are effective intravenous chelating agents that chelate (“grab”) these unnecessary and damaging metals and escort them out of the body through the urine.
Curcumin (Curcuma longa) has as its main therapeutic substance, diferuloyl methane. Curcumin is derived from turmeric, a plant that belongs to the ginger family. Both laboratory as well as epidemiological studies has shown that curcumin has a multitude of anticancer effects.
Turmeric is a spice that is grown in many Asian countries and is also known as Indian saffron, jiang huang, haridra and haldi. The main culinary product is curcumin powder, which has been used not only as a food condiment in Asian cuisine but also in all of the traditional medical disciplines throughout the world, including Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
Research has been able to show that there are quite low rates of cancer in countries where people regularly eat 100mg to 200mg a day over long periods of time.
Over 2,000 published studies have shown curcumin is effective against cancers of the breast, prostate, liver, colon, lung, pancreas and more. Many of these studies have shown curcumin actually stops cancer cells from dividing, causes them to “commit suicide”, prevents spread (metastases) and stops them from forming in the first place.
And, the beauty of this substance is that curcumin has the ability to target cancer cells while leaving healthy cells unharmed, and is even protective.]. This is in broad contrast to chemotherapy, which destroys all cells, healthy and cancer cells.
Curcumin Targets Cancer in Multiple Ways
Curcumin changes both gene activity and expression and thereby not only destroys cancer cells but it promotes healthy cell function. In addition, it has anti-angiogenic properties, which prevent new blood vessels from forming so that the cancer cells cannot grow or spread.
Curcumin affects over 100 molecular pathways once it gets into the cell resulting in the following:
Stops the growth and spread of tumor cells
Stops healthy cells from becoming cancer cells Able to stop mutated cells so that they cannot spread.
Decreases inflammation, which is how cancer stem cells spread and set up “camp”
Blocks the proteins necessary to form tumors.
Stops new blood vessels from forming
Why Whole Turmeric Is Ineffective
There is only a small amount of curcumin in whole turmeric, hence not enough to achieve anticancer results, The turmeric root itself contains 3% curcumin.
Curcumin is very poorly absorbed into the blood stream from the gastrointestinal tract…only about 1% of what is ingested is actually absorbed.
So, clearly it is impossible to achieve enough tissue penetration using whole turmeric, hence curcumin should be used in cuisine and in medical interventions.
