Q&A Paw Paw for my Cat?

 

Question:

My 1 1/2 ye old cat was just diagnosed with tumors around her heart. She has gone down hill very quickly in the past 2 days. I am scheduling surgery hopefully this week for their removal. I have read great things about Paw Paw for cancer in humans. Is it safe to treat my cat with it and if so how much would administer daily for a 5lb cat? I have suffered great loss through death in 2016 in my family and losing “Monkey” is more than I can bear. I hope you can help with providing your opinion on this matter. Time is of the essence as I am sure it is with everyone asking for your time. I thank you in advance for consideration.

 

Answer:

Sorry to hear about your cat, which is obviously very dear to you.  Yes, we have used Paw Paw successfully to extend life in pets. For animals, just as with humans, the chemo therapeutic effect of Paw Paw is self-regulating. For 5 lbs.  (that’s a small cat!) you could start with 1/4 of a capsule of Paw Paw Cell Reg, and repeat 4 times per day. If any nausea presents, then decrease this dosage. If no problem after the first day, then increase by 1/4 capsule per day. Any nausea indicates you have reached the tolerance dosage, so you would decrease to at the previous dose. If  you have further questions, and to get hold of the correct Paw Paw product that Dr. McLaughlin researched, please contact us, as knowing where you live we can help you get it fastest & least expensive way.

Q & A Graviola, Papaya versus Paw Paw – Asimina triloba

Questions:

Is Sour Sop, Guanabana or Brazilian Graviola the same as in your Paw Paw Program book?  Anita R.

Is Paw Paw the same thing as Papaya Leaf?  Dan

Answer:

NO.

Both the sour sop juice and papaya leaf are totally different species of the plant and totally different preparations from the Paw Paw, Latin name Asimina triloba that has been researched as effective for cancer. Although there is some correct information on the site you mentioned, there is also some misinformation, especially concerning the research reference.(see end of this article).

In the field of medicinal herbals, it is paramount to understand which species of a plant one is using. Many plants have the same family name, but chemical composition within a species, and within different parts of the plant, varies widely. The same name may also apply to completely different plants in different parts of the world. For example, many countries have different plants they call Heal All, which are not even in the same plant family. Latin names, or nomenclature, are the only way to scientifically identify, and reproduce the medicinal benefits.

For accuracy,  always use the Latin name of the plant, which in the case my book, The Paw Program – A “Christopher Columbus” Approach to Cancer, refers to the Paw Paw tree, Asimina triloba, standardized twig bark,  harvested at the correct time. This plant is native to the eastern U.S.

Please contact us to get the correct source, direct discount pricing, AND support from an expert.

From page 90 – 91 of Lorene Benoit’s  book: ” Paw Paw is one of the most researched and most effective herbal remedies in connection with cancer. In the past 30 years research on Paw Paw has been conducted by Dr. Jerry McLaughlin and a team of researchers at Purdue University, as well as at Wayne State University.”

Over fifty bioactive compounds, called the annonaceous acetogenins, have been found in the standardized Paw Paw concentrate of this particular species of Paw Paw. These have been described in a series of research papers as representing the most potent, major, bioactive structural types of acetogenins.

Other related species of Annona muricata, also known as graviola, guanabana, Sour sop, and Brazilian Paw Paw contain only the less potent monotetrahydrofuran acetogenins, and do not maximize acetogenin levels or standardize the product to assure consistent potency.
Beware when checking sources online, that you will not only receive the correct herb, but that you have someone to contact for ongoing support. 

In addition, the health of the tree,  part used,  time of year that the twig is harvested for optimum potency, and how it is processed,  and tested, ALL effect the outcome.

To ensure you get the correct herbal preparation that has been researched, the best price, plus support, please contact the author.

As part of Dr. McLaughlin’s research, one study of 100+ patients, with many types of tumours represented,  resulted in:

Significant reductions seen in tumor sizes (verified by CT, etc.)

Significant reductions in tumor antigen levels (PSA, CA2729, CA125, alkaline phosphatase, etc.)

Very few side effects; mostly none; nausea and vomiting (2 people); itching (1 person); many reported “increased energy”

No hair loss, no bone marrow depression, No GI bleeding

Benefits were also seen with cold sores, shingles, MS, toe nail fungus, acne, athletes foot, eczema & psoriasis (in capsules, lotion and salve formulations).

These results were with the standardized extract of Paw Paw as prepared, tested & supervised by Dr. Jerry McLaughln, and encapsulated by Nature’s Sunshine Products. To order, please contact our office. You can also receive professional advice from the author, which is not available when ordering from Amazon.

Case studies conducted by Dr. Forsythe, a Nevada oncologist are included in my book, including complete remissions with stage four cancers as well as Testimonials offered  from my own clients.

I have included excerpts from pages 6-8 of a 37 page report from the Journal Natural Products, 1999, 62 504-540, titled: Annonaceous Acetogenins: Recent Progress

by Feras Q. Alali, Xiao-Xi Liu, and Jerry L. McLaughlin*, Department of Medicinal Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology, School of Pharmacy and Pharmacal Sciences, Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana 47907

Should you wish the whole technical report with all 138 References included,  search online, or contact our office, with this in subject line: Acetogenins Tech Review JNP 1999

The Annonaceae (custard-apple family), is very large, 130 genera and 2300 species. Phytochemical studies and, to a lesser extent, pharmacological studies on Annonaceous species have intensified in the last 15 years; this is largely due to the discovery of the Annonaceous acetogenins, a class of natural compounds with a wide variety of biological activities.

The discovery of uvaricin in 1982,7 the first of the Annonaceous acetogenins,
as an in vivo active antileukemic (P-388) agent, invigorated wide interest in this family. The Annonaceous acetogenins are now one of the most rapidly growing classes of new natural products and offer exciting anthelmintic,(kills worms),  in vivo and cytotoxic antitumor, antimalarial, antimicrobial, antiprotozoal, and pesticidal activities and special promise of becoming new chemotypes for antitumor and pesticidalagents.

Note: American pawpaw (Asimina triloba) is not a papaya and should not be confused with Carica papaya or Annona muricata (graviola) although the species have similar common names and may be called “pawpaw.”

I agree with what the website you sent me cited, concerning why the public has not heard as much about the Paw Paw family for an effective cancer approach.

http://inspireurfriend.blogspot.in/2012/10/10000-times-stronger-killer-of-cancer.html

“….under federal law, a natural product is not patentable. There’s no way to make serious profits from it. There was no way the company could protect its profits–or even make back the millions it poured into research. As the dream of huge profits evaporated, their testing on Graviola came to a screeching halt.”

However, this site mentions tests at Purdue University showed results with graviola leaves. This is not true; graviola did not show the effectiveness that Asmina triloba twig bark extract did, because they do not contain the acetogenin variety or strength.

Q & A? Cleanses, Children’s Health & Calcium

Questions & Answers (in italics):

In supporting those who wish to share Nature’s Sunshine Products as a business to help others achieve vital health; I often get questions such as these. As this covered an extensive range of topics, I thought it would be good to post it.

Good morning Lorene, hope all is well. Couple questions for you.

 

1. What is the difference between all the cleanses?
Looks like Clean Start and Tiao Pack are for the large intestines and the Detox Basic is to support the liver? There are also a couple more (cleanses).
In my experience Tiao He is very much for liver plus all organs. LIV-C in it is definitely liver, LBS & Psyllium for bowels /intestines), Body-DeTox for all organs, Red Clover for cellular/blood cleansing , Black Walnut for parasites and thyroid support. We have had this cleanse for 25 yrs.; it is very effective.

Especially good in spring when liver is often overload from heavier winter food, less activity, etc. This is the closest to the popular Wild Rose Cleanse. My husband & I have tested both and Tiao He was far more effective!

Fact sheets for all are available on line, via TakeTheNaturalPath.mynsp.com. On this site, click “More Info” , then choose your country on the NSP page. Contact Lorene Benoit for assistance in choosing what best suits your needs and for best pricing.

I have not had much experience with Detox Basics, as it is new, but to me it also looks like liver AND bowels because of the NutriBiome Bacillus Coagulans. The BerberinIR (berberis aristata) is an excellent blood sugar/glucose stabilizer.

Clean Start definitely gets the bowels moving – a better visual and bowel cleanser (than Tiao He) with the LBS & fibre mix: aloe, psyllium, chlorophyll & malic acid. It also contains Body Detox, which works on liver & other organs. I would use this one for sure if bowels are not working so well. People SEE the difference!
 
I know it can seem confusing to have so many, but every person’s needs are different. My suggestion is that you use them at different times and your personal experience will be the best guide for you. This is why we like people to be supported by the person helping them choose their herbs & supplements. 
 
The other two are cleanses: ParaPak – when people return from international travel; kids with pinworms, annual parasite cleanse. This 10 day cleanse was also used successfully with Candida/yeast before we had Candida Clear, which is a little better for this challenge because of the enzymes to be taken between meals. These really help to break down and clear out the candida organisms.

 

2. Also was hoping to get kid vitamins but they are with iron. Are there any vit/min for kids with out iron?
NO, but the Elderberry for children makes an excellent daily, if you do not want the iron. It especially is useful to keep strong immune system when they are exposed to lots of illness in school system.
Zambroza, (Thai Go in US) is a delicious beverage that is excellent for children; containing a wide range of anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals and immune support. 

 

3. The children probiotics are made in gummy form.  Hard to make a gummy with out adding stuff to it. Do you know what age kids can start taking these adult vit and probiotics?
No, they are not gummies – they are chewable. We had the gummies years ago made with natural fruit, but they were not as popular, so they reverted to our previous formula we have had for years.

 

4. Do you know what age kids can start taking these adult vits and probiotics?
No exact age has been determined as to when infantile flora changes. I suspect it differs with a child’s constitution, diet, whether they were born vaginally or by C section, breastfed and how long, and other lifestyle factors.  Personally I think once they are 3 yrs. or 40 lbs. and are able to handle capsules or tablets, they could use children’s or adult probiotics. 
Capsules can be emptied into water, chlorophyll or food, if they cannot swallow.
Research certainly shows that probiotics are helpful for colic, diarrhea, skin conditions, food allergies and immunity. 

 

5. Do you know why Liquid B12 has no b9? Has other b vit though.
B12 has some of the other B’s to avoid imbalance or deficiencies. We also have separate B6, B9, and B5 as some people need more of these. For something with ALL the B’s, then use B complex. Super Vits & Mins. is also a completely balanced daily with all B’s. Same formula used for 40+ years, because it works & herbal base makes it very absorbable, so don’t let small numbers fool you – it’s a better formula than most “mega” vit & min formulas.

 

6. Also the difference between calcium products.
Personally I think Skeletal Support is excellent because it contains boron. This formula has been available and popular in the US for several years; relatively recently approved in Canada. But I have had many clients who have had terrific results with all NSP Calciums – people seem to get their favourites. I have had people with leg cramps, restless legs, or high pH acidity taking other Cal Mag supplements without results – they take ours and notice a difference usually within a week. Again, it is about the absorption and bio-availability for which NSP has stringent standards.
We also have straight herbal calcium formulas which some people prefer for infants and seniors, and works specifically for use in hot flashes, but that is another topic. They are in capsule form and can be made into tea by opening the capsule. NSP offers many different strokes for different folks!
Thanks for your support. RM

Q & A: Teeth Grinding

Question

 I need your help with my husband. He has been grinding his teeth at night and he is driving me crazy. Is it his nerves, parasites? What do you think it could be? What do you recommend? Thanks again for your ongoing help!

Answer

Teeth grinding, or bruxism, can be from several causes, two of which you already mentioned.

Parasites – teeth grinding can be a sign of pinworms , quite common, or roundworms, a bit less common. This is often more the case with children, but as all adults also have parasites, everyone is wise to do a parasite cleanse once or twice a year anyways, to keep these little critters in balance.

Some people think that we only pick up parasites when travelling; this is NOT true. I have had cases of roundworms, tapeworms and amoebas with clients who have never left Canada. But we DO encourage  a parasite cleanse after travelling to tropical countries. Historically, people did cleanses every spring, whether by choice or natural selection – edible plants (weeds) such as dandelion, nettles, burdock, yellow dock, and other bitters may have been the only food available in springtime. And most have heard of the castor oil treatment from Grandma – same idea – clean out that bowel! For ideas that are easier than either of these, please refer to past articles:

Success for Diarrhea and Parasites

Parasites, Pets and People

 

Nerves and Stress can cause teeth grinding. Stress depletes many vitamins and minerals such as Vitamins B’s & C’s,  Zinc & Magnesium, which are all required for healthy nervous system. Muscle tension is a result. When one sleeps, the muscles of the jaw will often express this stress, resulting in grinding. To test if this is the problem, one can use something like Stress Pak for 1 month and evaluate.

An exercise which a biological dentist gave me years ago to help prevent this is: before going to sleep clench your jaw together and hold for 5-10 seconds, then slowly release. Do this at least 3 times. In simplified terms, he said this sends a message to the brain that tells it you have done the clenching, now relax. I think it is a it like isometrics. As I did not like the feel of clenching my teeth without some protection, I purchased an inexpensive mouth guard, available in  a local hockey store. This is the type you put in boiling water and mold to your teeth. You can also go to sleep with this in place; it may not stay there long, but seemed to help.

Herbals treatments that help relax muscles and promote sleep can be taken before bedtime. Some that we find particularly helpful are: Magnesium, plus Nervous System Pack (US)/ or Eight (CA), OR Herbal Sleep (US) / HVP (CA). Contact us to order any of these with a direct discount.

 

TMJ or Temporomandiblular Joint being out of position can contribute to grinding. This may also be related to stress. Two certifications I have that help with this: CRA, Contact Reflex Analysis,  which some chiropractors have, is used to test and correct this. TMJ Re-set is another, which  makes a huge difference to people in overall posture, neck mobility, clarity of thinking and more. The TMJ has extensive implications for our health. Some body or energy workers, such as cranial sacral therapists may be helpful.

 

Dental misalignments can be another cause. I would check out the previous 3 possibilities first, unless you have a good dental plan.  Misalignments can be due to fillings or teeth being too high or low, underlying infections, root canals, jaw positioning, probably other things that only a dentist can tell you.  Dentists can also make a professionally fitted mouthguard that one wears all night. This can prevent further damage to teeth caused by the grinding, but may not be addressing the underlying cause(s).

Hope this helps; if not contact us for further information.

Psoriasis and Foot fungus – connected?

QUESTION:

I have been having a challenge with psoriasis – used a cortisone type cream for 3 months and it has not made a difference. Doctor also says I have foot fungus. Is there something I can pop or apply? Any suggestions appreciated.

LBa.

 

ANSWER:

Thanks for the question. Unfortunately neither of these conditions, psoriasis or foot fungus are as simple as popping a pill or applying a lotion, whether pharmaceutical OR natural.

Cortisone and other steroidal creams may calm the situation temporarily, but do nothing to heal it. In addition, over time they thin the skin and make it more susceptible to infection and inflammation. Best used only as last resort when one does not have time to heal…i.e. if you were 85-90 years old OR in an emergency situation, to stave off itching until you can get a natural program for healing.

I am going to refer you to a couple of past articles that cover some of the background on this subject. I used the “Search” box in top right corner of my Research Blog to find these. 

Dietary suggestions, such as those in my Paw Paw Program are essential.  I know that in your case, there are bowel/intestinal issues and  I think your diet is already quite good due to celiac condition. However, the appearance of these things indicate that the bowel is inflamed and needs healing – this will only happen from the inside out over a period of time. If you get on a good program, you should definitely see results within 3 months, and quite likely before then.

Read the following articles, then get back to me if you want to start on a program. If this were me, I would follow, in this order:

Step One:

Step Two: 

  • Intestinal Healing with UC3-J – 6-9 per day
  • Vitamin D3, 10,000 units- can decrease by 1000 mg. per week, ONCE YOU START SEEING IMPROVEMENT….
  • continue with chlorophyll, Probiotic & external treatments as in Step 1

Step Three: 

  • After minimum 2 months, evaluate – a Candida Clear cleanse may be necessary at this time.

Of course, it is a given, that you need to:

  • stop all sugar (good explanation about this in my book),
  • drink at least half you weight in ounces of good water,
  • decrease stressors,
  • get exercise and fresh air.
  • eliminate any household and personal toxins

This may seem intimidating, but for healing this, it is a commitment to your health.

Q & A? Can I take…..with Paw Paw Program?

This is one of the most common questions I get asked by those using the Paw Paw Program to heal and or prevent cancer.

Can I take tumeric, can I take curcumin, can I take Red Raspberry Seed extract, can I take  aged Garlic? Can I take Beta Glucans form  XYZ Company? Can I take quercertin, citrus pectin, coconut oil capsules, cayenne, EGCG (from Green Tea), polyphenols, resveratrol…… the list and options can be extensive and are limitless!

In our experience, because there is so much information available on the net and so many different choices, people are overwhelmed and want to take every thing that is promoted as being helpful for cancer. This is one reason why, in my book, The Paw Paw Program, I devote almost 20 pages of Chapter 2 to discuss other successful and useful herbs, supplements, and protocols. However, after using many of these myself and with clients in my professional practice for almost 35 years, it is also why I wrote the book explaining specific research, actions and program for Paw Paw, Asimina triloba. It is because this is what myself, other researchers and practitioners have found to be the most effective combination.

The therapeutic program in The Paw Paw Program addresses the causes for cancer, and the necessary steps to correct those causes, while rebuilding the the immune system and saturating the body with complete nutrition to enable it to heal and to stay healthy. This means, in a nutshell:

  • determining the cause of injury
  • stopping inflammation
  • healing infection
  • eliminating toxins  via kidneys, colon, skin, lungs
  • ensuring circulation so nutrients reach every cell of the body for healing

To do this, we start with the basic Paw Paw program. This article includes specific recommendations for dosages and timing.

For those who wish to add more to the basic program, we have found those therapeutics listed in the Paw Paw Program Upgrade to be the most beneficial. These nutritional combinations are more effective than all the separate supplements that can be added, such as those I list at the beginning, or any other numerous options. These MAY all be good supplements, if they are quality products; however the additional ones I list in the above article and  in my book  are more specific to support the body to overcome disease with this program.

After E-Tea (the original Essiac formula) and Pau D’Arco recommended in the Paw Paw Upgrade, I would add Cat’s Claw Combination then Colostrum. Here is one excerpt recently received  from a  co-worker who is also very successful with cancer.

 All diseased conditions are caused by inflammation. Quality Colostrum binds toxic lectins, which can be one source of inflammation. Colostrum is a whole food, able to regulate blood sugar levels.  It increases bone and lean muscle mass. It regenerates the neurotransmitters of the brain.  Colostrum regenerates and accelerates the growth of aged and injured muscle, bone, cartilage, skin collagen and nervous tissue. Colostrum is an anti-aging food.

Dr. Shealy says, “By heating it above 140 degrees, Colostrum loses all its potency”.

Colostrum from Nature’s Sunshine is not heated which makes it live and anti-aging.

A separate note on Beta Glucans. Yes, they are compatible with the Paw Paw Program, as the actions do not promote ATP production, plus contribute to the immune system’s ability to slow tumour growth via anti-angiogenesis; similar actions to  Paw Paw Cell Reg, Asimina triloba. They work by binding to receptors on macrophages and other white blood cells and activating them. 

I find if one can get any supplement or nutrition, including beta glucans, in a whole, natural form, it is better assimilated by the body. This is  why NSP offers it in several products, all derived from plant/herb sources.

Beta glucans are a component of Colostrum – another reason Colostrum is recommended. Beta glucans are also included in one of our Super Foods, Nature’s Harvest (which can be added to your blender shake) and  Beta Glucans are also found in Reishi Mushroom, Lycium and Schizandra, which are all found in Mineral Chi Tonic, part of the Basic Program. In the US, Beta glucans are also found in Immune Simulator, from Maitake mushrooms.

I believe that when one sources  nutrition from a whole plant, rather than as an extracted  isolate supplement, the body can digest it better and utilize it better.  The body resonates with whole plant energy more than with a isolated parts. This has been proven through the centuries. This is why vitamins and minerals that are in  a whole herbal, food base are much better utilized even if much lower dosages.

So bottom line, do not worry about taking everything you will hear about online and on the news- if you are following the recommendation in The Paw Paw Program, you are on the right track to discovering the World IS Round already!

Re-read the dietary recommendations, get those Super Shakes happening with some good quality protein such as nuts and Nature’s Harvest and enjoy getting healthier day by day. Blessings!

Q&A: Paw Paw for Prevention

Question:

I am writing for a friend who does not have a computer. In a CT scan of his one kidney for stones, the doctors discovered a malignant tumor beneath the kidney. They removed the kidney surgically and lasered the large stones. They said the tumor was intact and told him to come back in a year. I am concerned that he will get another tumor because of his acid diet. Does Paw Paw prevent the formation of tumors?

TRod.

 

Answer:

Whatever conditions* this man had in his body to allow the growth of the tumor, if they are NOT changed, then yes, he may be susceptible to more abnormal growth.

Contributing factors, such as acidic diet, plus underlying infection, irritation or something causing inflammation must have been present for the growth to have occurred in the first place. These need to be changed/corrected for ongoing health.

Research shows thatPaw Paw Cell Reg helps prevent abnormal cell growth, through 4 different mechanisms as outlined in my book, pgs. 89-95.  There are a couple ways to take it for prevention, either taking low dosage daily, or the regular dosage to tolerance 3-4 times per year, along with the other essential components of the program. Remember good health practitioners work with a program to cover all 4 pillars of health (Chapter 6 of The Paw Paw Program),  not just one miracle product.

In the US, Paw Paw is part of the 10 day Para Cleanse, a suggested seasonal whole body cleanse.  In Canada, the Paw Paw can be added to Para Pak for the same effect.

You may also want to read Kidney Stones: Causes, Prevention & Emergency Treatment. Some of the suggestions for prevention do help to alkalize the body, so you are on the right track!

Please contact us if you want to have a wholesale account set up to get the same professional nutrition that we have used successfully for since 1990. At TakeTheNaturalPath.MyNSP.Com, you can see what products we have to offer, learn about the Quality, and see prices (go to More Info and choose your country at the top of page).

*The wording in your question is a little confusing, as you said they removed the kidney, then lasered the stones, which would not make much sense – why laser them if kidney is gone? Perhaps they just removed the tumor, then lasered the stones? Ot removed 1 kidney and lasered stones in the other? In any case, the above information would apply.

Thank you for contacting us and helping your friend!

Q & A: MDS – Chlorophyll Benefits & Research

 

 Question:

My dad has MDS  (myelodysplasia) with immature red blood cells. My gut tells me Chlorophyll can help him. We got him to try the capsules; he felt better but when went to the Dr.
His blood counts were down & he has to do a transfusion and now he thinks it didn’t help. The fact that he felt better, I think it helped, perhaps replaced his bad blood cell function to some extent?
I feel like the Docs are trapped in their approved box that and they are pushing for a chemo drug next. I think they will kill him faster and its more a money thing than a healing thing. 100% waiver…your thoughts?
Any good references you can send me to I can show him? My angels are screaming Chlorophyll.

 

Answer:

Yes, I agree with you about both things:

1) Your Dad would be wise to  pay attention to how he feels – blood tests can be erroneous, test levels can be affected by who takes them, what time of the day, what he ate within the last 24 hrs., what lab, several other factors. How he feels is essential. Feeling better,  even as a state of mind, will positively affect his physical well being.

2) Doctors do have an agenda for which they have been exceptionally well trained – 7-10 years –  learning how to prescribe drugs to treat symptoms. Well intentioned, but not always the best for healing. Anyone who doubts this just needs to watch any or all of BOUGHT – one of the best done summaries of our North American medical business.

I also feel the The Paw Paw program would benefit him, as Paw Paw chemotherapeutic actions are more powerful and SAFER than drug chemo. IF he does decide to take the chemo, please have hom take Paw Paw with it to mitigate negative effects and enhance any benefit.

Re chlorophyll research: Please read this specific article on Chlorophyll Benefits, as well as the Chlorophyll Archives showing it’s use with some other conditions. Chlorophyll research showing health benefits to humans and pets is abundant on the internet.I have listed some specific benefits and reference at end to help.

Chlorophyll from Nature’s Sunshine has been a top selling product since 1972 – that would not happen if it was not of benefit to thousands of people. It is difficult to find a healthier beverage that is good for everyone and so inexpensive!

We offer it in several forms: the capsule offers approximately the equivalent of 3 tsp. of regular liquid Chlorophyll and 1 tsp of Extra Strength, available only in US. Please contact our office to get the best price, as well as support.

Chlorophyllin is the active part of NSP chlorophyll that contains  the nutritional value of raw chlorophyll, but is more easily absorbed. As a nutritional supplement, chlorophyllin has been extensively researched for its detoxification, antioxidant, antimutagenic, and tonic properties. Here is some research:

Protection against mutagens/carcinogens*
Testing for more than 20 years has established chlorophyllin as an antimutagenic /anticarcinogenic agent able to quench major free radicals, such as the superoxide radical, hydrogen peroxide, singlet oxygen, and even the most dangerous reactive hydroxyl radical and this at very low doses.
“Taking chlorophyll chlorophyllin or eating green vegetables, like spinach, that are rich in chlorophyll may be a practical way of reducing the risk of liver cancer and other cancers caused by environmental triggers.”—Thomas Kensler, PhD.

Chlorophyllin had an ability to bind or ‘sandwich’ certain classes of chemical mutagens and carcinogens. These included polyaromatic hydrocarbons found in tobacco smoke, some heterocyclic amines (cooked meat mutagens), and aflatoxin chemicals suspected or known to cause human lung, colon, or liver cancer.”—George S. Bailey, Ph.D. OSU Distinguished Professor, Department of Environmental and Molecular Toxicology

The risk of liver, colon, stomach, and lung cancer which include the leading causes of cancer death in the US and the world, may easily be cut in half by appropriate daily intake of simple, safe, inexpensive chlorophyll derivatives.“—Dr. Richard C. Heimsch

Chlorophyllin is as effective as green tea catechins in combating mutagens and carcinogens in the colon. It is speculated that chlorophyllin’s antimutagenic and anticarcinogenic mechanisms are a combination of antioxidant activity and the formation of complexes that bind to and inactivate mutagens/carcinogens. — The Linus Pauling Institute and Department of Environmental and Molecular Toxicology, Oregon State University

Chlorophyllin’s antioxidant properties fight inflammation, a
major contributor to conditions such as cancer, heart disease and
arthritis. —  Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School Of Public Health

Q & A: Paw Paw & chemo & surgery?

Questions:

Hi Lorene,

Thank you so much for your time yesterday. When my partner gets back, I will e- mail my order because right now I am so nervous I am going to die that I can’t do anything right. I also need to book an appointment with you; I have so many questions.

Do you feel I should have surgery to remove the tumor 3.6 cm. & so far one positive lymph node,or do these tumors get broken up with a natural protocol? The surgeon said maybe do chemo first, I am not crazy about that idea.

Can I use paw paw if I have gall bladder issues?

Please help me. Thank you so much, Lorene. Sorry this is so long respectfully yours, DN

 

Answers:

There is no contra-indication for Paw Paw with gall bladder issues.

I cannot recommend what someone should or should not do. Nor can any professional, including oncologists; although they are legally allowed to. I can only say what I think I would do in a similar position.
I base my decisions on  my experiences and training; likewise they do – from an entirely different set of concepts, experiences and training.
I would not attack my immune system with unproven toxic chemicals, which have no clear evidence of working,  before trying natural, more effective chemotherapy that does no harm to the body, as I believe in the first maxim of medicine: “Do No Harm“.
IF I were going to do chemo I would definitely do Paw Paw Program along with it, as explained in my book: 1) to make it more effective and 2) to lessen the side effects of the toxic chemicals.
Surgery is sometimes the lesser of 3 evils, but again, it can always be chosen later if natural treatment does not show results within 2-3 months.
From speaking with you, you have been “terrified” (your words) and are not feeling capable of making sensible decisions – part of the medical environment surrounding cancer, which needs to change. In my book, I refer to it as a “disease of fear”; not a good space to be in for healing.
If you have a 3.6 cm. tumor it did not get there overnight; your decisions also do not need to be made overnight – do not be pressured. So at this point, breathe, calm down, hug that dog of yours. And read  The Paw Paw book when it arrives – it is packed with useful information to improve your health, no matter what choice of treatment you make.
If you choose to follow this program, we’ll get the herbs and nutrition sent to you. Let me know when you would like the appointment to discuss further; just email me two times. Or we can schedule it a week after you start the program – your choice!

Q & A: Chronic Throat Irritation

Question:

Just wondered what your answer would be to a chronic throat irritation? I found a product not available anywhere in Canada by a Swedish company that seems to have phenomenal success rates called kan jang . I could order it from the U.S…..
Thank you. JV

Answer:

First, I would want to understand what is causing the chronic irritation. A food, beverage, chemical or other toxin, GERD (acid reflux), low grade or sub-clinical strep infection, or mucous drainage from sinus are some possibilities. As explained in my book, The Paw Paw Program, inflammation is the root cause of all disease.

So to FIX the challenge, this cause would need to be addressed. Some natural products that I know would provide relief, soothing and healing to the throat irritation are:

  • Tei Fu Oil  will provide instant relief – this is my take everywhere first aid kit in a bottle!
  • Slippery Elm – open 2 capsules and add 4 Tbsp. hot water – and sip. If it thickens too much, add more water
  • Aloe Vera Juice – slowly sip several Tablespoons per day
  • Silver Gel – excellent for irritation and infection – if you can apply it to back of throat without gagging, do that, otherwise just put at least a pea size in mouth and it will slowly coat the throat area

The last two will help the body heal the irritated throat tissues – use these for daily for at least a month. If it recurs, then you really have to look for the cause again.

As for the Swedish product, sorry I cannot comment. I have used mostly Nature’s Sunshine Products since 1990,  as their quality is unsurpassed and the results are excellent. If you decide to order it, do your research, as it sounds like a Chinese product, and their quality control if often non-existent.
