Coconut oil ketogenic cleanse for cancer


by Dr. David Jockers 

(NaturalNews) Growing evidence is reporting that cancer is a metabolic disease characterized by cellular mitochondrial respiratory insufficiency. Cancer cells can only survive and thrive off of glucose and amino acid fermentation. A ketogenic cleanse has been proposed as a means of starving off cancer cell development. The ideal fuel source for the ketogenic cleanse is extra-virgin coconut oil with its powerful immune boosting properties.

Famous cell biologist Otto Warburg discovered that cancer cells have altered metabolism and are unable to produce energy through normal cellular respiration. The Warburg effect is the observation that these cells drive all of their energy from a process that depends upon sugar called glycolysis and they produce high levels of lactic acid as a result.

Mitochondrial damage and genomic instability

The mitochondria can become damaged from exposure to environmental toxins, various viruses and chronic inflammatory processes within the body. When this happens, the mitochondria will often lose its ability to produce energy through cellular respiration. The respiratory insufficiency leads to altered metabolic function and the dependence upon glucose and amino acid fermentation to produce energy. This process also results in genomic instability and mutant DNA formation.

Normal cells have relatively low rates of glycolysis and derive most of their energy through aerobic metabolism of pyruvate in the mitochondria. Studies have demonstrated that cancer cells have lost their ability to produce energy through the process of aerobic metabolism even when oxygen is plentiful. These cells depend upon rapid glycolytic processes for all their energy demands. Fast growing metastatic cancers are seen to have glycolytic rates up to two hundred times higher than normal tissues.

Cancer cells need sugar

Dr. Thomas Seyfried has expanded upon Warburg’s theories to show that cancer cells can produce energy through glucose and amino acid fermentation. In order to drive enough sugar to run their metabolic systems the cancer cells upregulate insulin receptors and contain ten times more than normal cells. This allows them to gobble up glucose and other nutrients from the blood stream at an accelerated rate.

The metabolism of fatty acids results in ketones that normal cells can utilize but cancer cells cannot. These ketone bodies provide a great anti-inflammatory fuel source for the body that also starves the cancer cells from their nutrient demands.

Ketones fuel normal cells and starve cancer cells

Dr. Seyfried’s research has shown that optimal blood sugar levels for cancer starvation are between 55-65 mg/dl and ketone levels should get up over 3mM and stay under 7mM. This is done through a process of fasting and fueling with healthy fat sources without any carbohydrates for a period of three and up to ten days. Fast growing metastatic cancer should go the full 10 days on the cleanse if possible.

Coconut oil contains a wide array of small and medium chain saturated fats that the body metabolizes very easily for energy production. Coconut oil is also rich in the immune boosting lauric acid which is converted in our body to monolaurin.

Monolaurin contains extraordinarily powerful anti-biotic, anti-viral, and anti-fungal properties. Unlike man-made anti-biotics and anti-virals these fatty acids pose no danger within our bodies. This is especially helpful since individuals with cancer have dysbiotic guts that are contributing to the chronic inflammation that may have caused the genomic instability to begin with.

Coconut Oil Cleanse

Take 2 tbsp of coconut oil every 3 hours during the day (8-10 tablespoons daily)

Drink about a gallon of clean water with anti-oxidant extracts (fresh lemon, turmeric, chlorophyll, apple cider vinegar, fermented herbal extracts, etc.)

Use natural herbal laxatives and probiotics to ensure proper bowel elimination

Prostate cancer linked to high intake of protein and calcium from dairy

Originally published April 29 2013


by PF Louis 

(NaturalNews) The European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPICN) is a multicenter meta-epidemiological (broad statistical survey) study designed to assess cancer risks by investigating past and current relationships between diet, lifestyle, environmental factors and cancer among a large population of different EU nations.

EPICN had a pool of 500,000 men and women recruited from 28 centers in 10 European countries: Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom (UK) for several studies involving different cancers and groups with different lifestyles and diets.

A UK sub-study isolated 142,251 men from this vast pool, excluding Norway and France. Both of those nations had only women in the study. The men were recruited between 1989 and 2004 with a median age of 52, mostly white Europeans from the eight nations that had men in the EPICN cohort (group of similar types).

During recruitment, this male group taken from the EPICN required consentual access to medical records, no history or diagnosis of cancer proven by medical records, and were able to complete questionnaires on their diet, lifestyle and medical history.

Men in the top one percent and bottom one percent of the institutionally recommended caloric intake were excluded from this study in order to remove wide variances from their statistical analysis.

The UK study

The UK study, “Animal foods, protein, calcium and prostate cancer risk: the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition” study was completed in March 2007 and its paper was published in the British Journal of Cancer in April 2008.

Animal foods for those in the study included total meat and meat products with their subcategories, fish and shellfish with their subcategories, and dairy products, including milk, yoghurt, cheese, and eggs. Food amounts were measured in grams.

It had already been hypothesized that a high intake of animal protein enhanced growth hormone activity to increase the risk of prostate cancer. Some non-clinical studies showed a strong correlation with milk to higher incidents of prostate cancer with the hypothesis that high calcium intake from dairy products inhibits the synthesis of vitamin D.

After an average of 8.7 years of follow-up, 2,727 men were diagnosed with prostate cancer among the 142,520 participants. The UK did not find a direct association with milk alone to prostate cancer, as other studies seemed to have suggested.

But they determined that protein from milk products, cheese, yoghurt, and others was a strong factor among those whose daily consumption exceeded the recommended daily amount by 35 grams (1.2 ounces) daily.

Calcium from dairy products was associated with prostate cancer risk as well, but not calcium from other foods. In the researchers’ opinion, their results support the hypothesis that a high intake of protein or calcium from dairy products may increase the risk for prostate cancer.

Opinion Despite statistical machinations to offset extraneous factors and with just under a 2 percent prostate cancer outcome among 142,500 men over several years of monitoring, one wonders how this can be so conclusive.

One may question if dairy products, especially dairy products from raw milk, increase the risk of prostate cancer. Raw milk dairy product intake was not considered in this study,

One thing is for certain, this study kept several researchers busily employed for a few years.

Cancer, the avoidable epidemic

by S. D. Wells 

(NaturalNews) Cancer strikes every other man and every third woman in the United States, and roughly 50 percent survive it. The cure, we are told by the mainstream media and doctors, is under way, but prevention is already nearly 100 percent proofed. Who knew? How could you take certain steps to preserve your cells, your DNA, and protect your body from the silent killer which has a thousand causes “they” won’t tell you about?

First, study this list of six steps that keep your cells from degenerating and mutating, thus keeping them from multiplying uncontrollably. If you want the secret to the 9th ill-wonder of the world, and if you don’t want your life to be “driven by suffering,” take a close look at the six-step plan for guarding your life from the “c” word:

1. Get rid of parasites and lingering waste in your organs, your intestines, and your entire cleansing system. Any food which isn’t excreted within 24 hours becomes a toxin in your body. Parasites can feed in this way. Food grade diatomaceous earth kills parasites in your body, naturally! Research the many uses of diatomaceous earth. Also, kidney and colon cleanses, and even a liver cleanse may be appropriate for you. Click on these links and make an educated decision. Then contact a Naturopath Physician for more advice and guidance:

(http://www.naturopathic.org/)

2. Get the “Fooducate” app for your smart phone. If you don’t have smart phone, tell someone you know who does, and get the FREE app that scores food, tells you if it is GMO or not, tells you if its organic or not, or if it has ingredients you are allergic to, and best of all if those food “agents” cause cancer. Get in “the know” with “Fooducate:”

(http://www.fooducate.com/)

3. Go organic, at least 75 percent of what you consume, and make most of that raw vegetables and fruits. No more “corporate” GMO pesticide laden food for you and your family! No more fluoridated water or artificial sweeteners. Do your homework and click on these links for details. Also be careful of everything you put on your skin, including shampoo, conditioner, soaps, lotions, sunblock, cosmetics and the like:

Cancer is a chemically-driven disorder of the cells

Realize that cancer is avoidable if you live smart, buy smart and eat smart. Don’t fuel the “epidemic” which thrives off chemical food, chemical water, chemical skin care and chemical-laden medicine. Don’t fall for the big GMO lies and the allopathic doctor’s lies that contaminate your one and only body, the “temple of your soul.” Don’t trust the FDA and the AMA on food and medicine approvals. They don’t know about nutrition and they never have. Listen to nutritionists and the pioneers of longevity and “super” health, like Mike Adams the Health Ranger. Get the inside scoop on ideal health and powerful immunity, the natural way. Cancer has really only been an “epidemic” in the United States for about 75 years. Before that, there was rarely a case. That tells you a lot about modern day food and medicine!

Physical Fitness Providing New Options in Cancer Treatment Programs

Everyone knows that being overweight or obese comes with aton of negative health consequences, from symptoms like gastrointestinal refluxand fatigue to chronic disease. Exercise is the number one way to preventobesity and gain numerous other benefits. A growing number of doctors arefinding in research the evidence that exercise is not only great preventivemedicine but it also aids in the treatment of chronic diseases. Physical fitnessprograms have been used to combat osteoporosis and heart disease to goodeffect, and cancer research organization have funded several explorations intothe possible benefits of physical fitness training for cancer patients of alltypes.
When is Exercise Most Important for Cancer Patients?
It has long been realized that cancer survivors will benefitfrom regular exercise, be it walking or some other form of aerobics. Newinformation shows that the benefits extend to every stage of treatment as well.Obviously, there are some types of treatment that contraindicate the use ofsome forms of exercise. High-impact aerobics would be a poor choice for bonecancer patients, and those undergoing mesothelioma treatmentmay be unable to stand up on their own, much less go for the recommendedminimum 20-minute walks.
This limitations are the basis for the push to get physicalfitness experts included on all cancer treatment teams. The benefits are justtoo important to be seen as an alternative therapy any more. Chemotherapy, forinstance, is known to cause changes in appetite, rapid weight changes, andfatigue. Whether the prognosis is positive or poor for the patient, supervisedexercise can be performed safely to eliminate or reduce these symptoms. for this reason, exercise isimportant for all patients, because it improves the quality of life.Additionally, it has been shown to make some forms of treatment moresuccessful.
Importance of the Type and Amount of Exercise
Besides the need to maintain patient safety, the type ofexercise is important for other reasons as well. The primary problem seen ingetting patients physically fit is ensuring that the exercise program continuesregularly. The benefits accrue over continued training, so it is vitallyimportant to seek out physical fitness routines that are enjoyable for thepatient. Limitations in movement following surgery, or for terminal patients,can mean strict prescriptions on exercise, but other patients should explorewhat they enjoy. Water aerobics, yoga, dance and even weight training are allpossibilities.
The amount of exercise needed to realize benefits isdependent on the current status of the patient. Studies show that even aminimal amount is beneficial, and the key is tailoring the routine to theindividual. Seek out a cancer clinic with personal trainers who specialize incancer exercise.
