Q&A – Scleroderma, Dermatomyositis

by LoreneB - January 19th, 2014

Question:

I have been recently diagnosed with scleroderma and dermatomyositis. I have been trying to control my symptoms with diet, but the Drs are now telling me that my heart is being damaged from the muscle disease and I have to start taking some extremely strong medication which has a side effect of causing cancer. I, of course, do not want to go that route so I am wondering if you have any suggestions that might help.
Thank you for your time. CJ

 

Answer:

Dear CJ,
Sorry to hear about your health challenges. What the docs have to offer is totally unacceptable – choose between heart damage or cancer? No thank you!

There ARE safer and better options. For something this complex, a free 10 minutes or quick email will not likely be of much benefit, but if you send your phone number, I will contact you to see what we can do.  After that it is $1 per  minute, minimum $25. We offer these reasonable fees, as we feel good health should be accessible to everyone.

I will also email you a questionnaire to complete before our 10 mins. and you can either email it back to me, or give me the totals when we speak.

Both of these conditions, in fact most dis-ease, including cancer,  involve inflammation and immunity. This is well explained in my book. It is packed with easy to understand life style suggestions including diet, food choices, pH, recipes, exercise, emotional health and stress, so this could be an invaluable aid to help you  “work with diet”. You can read about it and order on this Paw Paw Program page.

The one general suggestion I would make for inflammation and immunity that helps SO MANY conditions is Zambroza (Canada)and Thai Go (US). With 13 herbs blended for maximum effectiveness, many people get very quick results with many conditions including those you have, fibromyalgia, arthritis, MS and cancer. Please let me know if you would like to try two months of this, as I know you would feel the difference. We can discuss getting this for you at the best price once you email your phone number and we talk.

Q&A: Hepatitis C

by LoreneB - January 12th, 2014

Question:

What would you suggest a person take for Hep C?  My husband  was diagnosed 6 years ago.  We’ve done well with our program, however the Doc still wants him to do the Interferon to kill the Hep C Virus. He did 2 Tiao He cleanses in December, then a Candida cleanse, then a Bod E Cleanse.  His blood work that just came back was the best ever! Took a month to build, then another Tiao He, and now another Bod E Klenz. When he’s not cleansing he takes Concentrated Milk Thistle Extract, Maca, Greenzone, Omega Oils, Probiotics, Mineral Chi, Liquid Chlorophyl and various other things as needed. Just wondering what might kill the Hep C Virus??  submitted by DS, BC.
HRP-C and/or LYM-X  and ???

Answer:

I think your husband is doing an excellent program! It is a general rule of thumb that any cleansing should be balanced by double of building, toning. So doing a 10-15 day Tiao He Cleanse, followed by a builder such as Milk Thistle Time Release Concentrate for double the length of time is smart.
Bod-E Klenz is safe to take longer term as it already has the 2:1 ration of build and cleanse built into the 30 day package.
HRP-C  (called VS-C in US) is an excellent Chinese combination that can be taken to strengthen and balance the immune system, while helping the liver to detoxify. It was created by a Chinese medical doctor specifically for viruses, so is an excellent choice for ongoing maintenance of hepatitis, shingles, herpes, AIDS and Mononucleosis to name a few.
I would think very carefully before undergoing interferon treatment, as the toxic side effects can be devastating. Remember what is supposed to be the medical maxim: DO NO HARM. I would add to this, “why fix it if it isn’t broken?” Sometimes doctors feel a need to prescribe treatment, even when someone is well, as they are not trained to understand how people can heal themselves naturally.
Lastly, I would make sure that in addition to using this excellent herbal program, you are both following the extensive dietary and lifestyle recommendations given in Lorene’s book: The Paw Paw Program – The “Christopher Columbus” Approach to Cancer – The World IS Round and Cancer CAN Be Treated Naturally.
The easy to read explanations help people understand how to eat better, why it is critical to eliminate sugar, pH balance, stress and emotions, and exercise. All the four pillars of health are covered  that are so critical to optimum health and prevention of all chronic conditions and diseases.
Keep up the progress and keep us posted. It is always encouraging to see people taking positive steps for their better health and life!

Q&A: Menopause, Peri-menopause, FSH

by LoreneB - January 10th, 2014

Question:

Hello. I am a healthy female & will be 52 this June. my FSH level is 104 & have not had a period since Sept. Is this considered post-menopause? Thank you. MC

 

Answer:

FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone) is a hormone produced in the pituitary gland,  to prepare female ovarian cells for fertilization. In men, FSH stimulates sperm division.  Secretion of all our hormones is based on complex interactions, so  FSH levels are connected with progesterone,  estrogen (primarily estradiol) , LH (Lutenizing Hormone) , Inhibin B, and GnRH (Growth Regulating Hormone).

If you were younger and these levels were this high, it could be an indication of infertility or other challenges.  At age 52  it is normal  for FSH to increase, as we are coming to the end of child bearing years.

Ranges are:

  • Women who are menstruating: 4.7 – 21.5 mIU/ml
  • Postmenopausal: 25.8 – 134.8 mIU/ml

You are more likely still in the stage called peri-menopause, as it has only been 4 months since your last period. Post menopause  generally means  menstruation has ceased for more than one year.

During peri-menopause, hormone levels, menstruation, hot flashes and moods may vary considerably. The better health you are in overall, the less you will be affected.

My website blog has several articles on Hormonal Health, which could benefit you as you begin this news stage of life. General healthful lifestyle recommendations are also covered in detail in my book:

The Paw Paw Program – The “Christopher Columbus” Approach to Cancer – The World IS Round and Cancer CAN Be Treated Naturally.  Extensive dietary recommendations and some recipes  are given to help people understand how to eat better.  Eliminating sugar,  is critical to optimum health and prevention of all chronic conditions, diseases. These recommendations, with particular attention to keeping the liver and glandular system healthy will help ensure an easy menopause.

Many women are helped by a combination of herbs known as Women’s Formula. There are several formulas; some women prefer the Wild Yam and Chaste Tree combination, but there is ALWAYS something that works!

Please contact us if you are interested in obtaining any of the above. We encourage people to use the same quality herbs we have used  for 24 years in our consulting office. Thanks for contacting us!

Success Stories: Lungs, Excema, Digestion and Business

by LoreneB - December 12th, 2013

M.N.  had not been feeling well for 5 days, cold moving into her lungs which are susceptible to bronchitis.  Started on Lobelia that night and 2 doses the next day as well as rubbing it on her chest, throat and ears (she has had tinnitis for years, too).
She started feeling better in less than 24 hrs with just 3 doses!

 

Lara B. had poor digestion and severe eczema on hands for years.  She started Cat’s Claw Combination 2-3x a day, Protease Plus 1-3x/day on an empty stomach, daily super food shake with Collatrim, Chinese Mineral Chi Tonic, Flax Hull Lignans, berries, spinach and Solstic Energy.  Did separate bowel, kidney, liver cleanses and went off all grains, legumes dairy, sugar and night shades.  Digestion improved in 2-3 weeks and eczema cleared up in 8 weeks.  10 months later she is still following the diet and super food shake 1x/day.  Eczema and digestion is 98% better as long as this protocol is followed.

 

Lucy T. Dec 2000 – I was so unwell I couldn’t even focus to cook…..major depressive disorder, 3rd stage adrenal exhaustion, severe cognitive loss.

Sept 2001, I started Chinese Medical School and in May 2003 , I became an Associate with Nature’s Sunshine Products.

Q & A: Cancer of bladder recurring and prevention

by LoreneB - December 3rd, 2013

Questions:

Paw Paw and its effects on bladder cancer: I have just started taking Paw Paw Cell Reg after being diagnosed with high-grade bladder cancer. Am not able to find much on the internet about its uses with Bladder CA. I was diagnosed with lung cancer 5 years ago, treated with chemo and radiation, and took graviola.

Tumor shrunk in 4 months from the size of a grapefruit to 2.9 cms. Continued the use of graviola for a year after with no recurrence. Now I have a second type of cancer. The small tumor I had in my bladder was removed 3 weeks ago, but I’m being told there are frequent recurrences with this disease, sometimes by muscle-invasive tumors, which would mean removal of the bladder.
I’m hoping to kill the cancer cells before recurrence with the held of Paw Paw. Do you know how soon Paw Paw actually begins to work or show effectiveness? As of now I have no tumors to shrink… just cells to kill.
My next question still is… since bladder cancer can be a lifetime recurring cancer, how do you know when it’s okay to stop taking it? McLaughlin says he doesn’t recommend using it as a maintenance, but more like an antibiotic… am also wondering if there is any possibility cells can also develop an MDR to Paw Paw with long term use.
Thanks very much for any help.                                  Doug M

Answers:

Unfortunately we see this often – cancer treated with any or all of the BIG 3, especially chemo, then another cancer appears down the road. Whether it has been caused by the toxicity of the first treatment, or is just a reflection that the immune system is not keeping on top of daily cell metabolism, is a moot point. This clearly emphasizes the importance of looking at balancing the entire body to prevent recurrence.

Paw Paw can work quickly – some have noticed a difference in energy levels within several days, for others it can take a month. However, if graviola worked in the past for you, then I suspect Paw Paw will work even better, as it is much more effective.

You are smart to keep on top of this to prevent any further tumor growth. As you are using Paw Paw Cell Reg (US name), this IS the correct species and reparation that has undergone all the research, and had the results.

You also need to look at other aspects of your lifestyle which may be allowing the recurrence. These are all explained in my book, The Paw Paw Program, as we find a person has much more success when they do more than just take herbs, even quality ones Like Paw Paw.

I would appreciate knowing from who you are purchasing the Paw Paw Cell Reg – this IS the correct, tested brand. This is the person who should be answering any future your questions, as part of the policy with Nature’s Sunshine Products is Quality, SERVICE and Integrity. If you are purchasing off Amazon, you are not going to get service.

For any future orders, please contact our office directly, then we can also support you, as well as ensuring you get it at direct cost from the NSP Company. (This person has since ordered the book and become one of our members for direct ordering and discount.)

To answer your second question, “when it’s okay to stop taking it?”,  I will ask you one back: what tests are your doctors using to decide whether you have cancer, whether you need chemo, or how your progress is doing? I would use these parameters, PLUS, even more importantly, HOW DO YOU FEEL? There is no problem taking Paw Paw until all symptoms are gone and you get a clear bill of health. My book addresses how to take for further prevention or re-occurance.

The lifestyle suggestions in my book are also designed to help you achieve and maintain optimum health and prevent other chronic conditions.

As far as dosage, the book explains that if you can split dosage every 6 hours, this is even more effective.

And no, in over 30 years there is no research to suggest cancer cells become  MDR resistant to Paw Paw, as it is not toxic like chemotherapy; it just interrupts ATP production, DNA and RNA replication.

Candida, Cancer and Optimum Health Diet

by LoreneB - December 2nd, 2013

 This diet is an optimum diet for Candida, Cancer, Weight Maintenance and overall  health.

Lorene Benoit’s book:  The Paw Paw Program – The “Christopher Columbus” Approach to Cancer – The World IS Round and Cancer CAN Be Treated Naturally gives detailed  explanation of why this diet is so effective for your health!

Focus on feasting your body with nutritious choices!

1. GREEN LEAFY:

All leafy greens:  Beet, Kale, Chards, Collard, Spinach, Mustard, Endive, Turnip, Poke, all Lettuces except Iceberg, Water Cress, Sprouts: Alfalfa, Clover, Pea, Broccoli, Radish, etc., Parsley, Chives, Oregano, Chickweed,  and all other herbs

 

2. GREEN:

Artichokes, Leeks, Asparagus, Lima Beans,  Green Peas, Broccoli, Green Pepper, Cabbage, String Beans, Celery, Brussel Sprouts, Cabbage

 

3. RED, ORANGE, PURPLE:

Beets, Tomato, Carrots, Red Cabbage, Eggplant, Red & Orange Peppers, Pumpkin, Yams, Sweet Potatoes, Chili Pepper, Red Lettuce

 

4. YELLOW AND WHITE:

Avocado, Turnip, Cucumber, Mung Bean Sprouts, Radish, Cauliflower, Squash, Yellow Wax Beans, Kohlrabi, Jicama

 

5. ROOT VEGETABLES:

Carrots, Rutabaga, Kohlrabi, Fresh Garlic, Onion Beets, Radish, Yams, Sweet Potatoes, Jerusalem Artichoke

 

6. COMPLETE PROTEIN:

Eggs, Seafood, Meat, Poultry, Nuts and Seeds*

*Nuts and seeds are better digested, therefor  more nutritious if soaked overnight or almost to sprouting stage before eating.
7. OILS:

Cold Pressed Virgin Olive , Flax, Super Oil, Hemp, Coconut, Chia

 

8. DAIRY:

Butter, Cream, Whipped Cream

Many people who cannot handle dairy due to lactose intolerance can digest the fat of milk, so can have whipped cream, heavy cream or full fat yogurt; organic is preferable to avoid the hormones and antibiotics in regular dairy.

 

9. BEVERAGES:

Chlorophyll and Water, Super Shakes or Smoothies, (can be used as one meal replacement per day), Vegetable Broth

 

10. SALAD AND VEGETABLE DRESSING :

Fresh lemon or lime or pure, unpasteurized apple cider vinegar with cold pressed olive oil or other healthy oil is essential for EFAs.

- add garlic, onions, herbs & spices to create your own healthful homemade dressing/sauce

In Lorene Benoit’s book:  The Paw Paw Program – The “Christopher Columbus” Approach to Cancer – The World IS Round and Cancer CAN Be Treated Naturally, there is an excellent dressing, “Alain’s Green Goddess Dressing”, which can be used for salads,  vegetables, grains or meats.

In this book, the sugar, yeast, candida, fungus and cancer connection are all well explained. Extensive dietary recommendations are given to help people understand how to eat better. Recipes are included.

Eliminating sugar, in fact, is critical to optimum health and prevention of all chronic conditions, diseases and early detection!

 

11. BEANS, PEAS, LEGUMES, PULSES AND GRAINS :

Persons who adhere to strict vegetarian diets may rotate these and take small portions from the following, to supplement lots of vegetables.

Adzuki, Soy Beans, Black-eyed Peas, Black Beans, Navy, Split Peas, Kidney, Pinto, Red Beans, Lentils, Garbanzo/Chick Pea, Buckwheat, Millet, Amaranth, Quinoa, Spelt, Brown Rice, Rye,  Yellow Cornmeal, Oat Groats, Triticale

 

AVOID :

All sugars, (honey, molasses, maple syrup, etc.) pickled food, fermented foods, alcohol, dairy products, processed foods, yeast, wheat flour products, rancid seeds, nuts or oils, coffee, and black tea.

 

UPGRADING YOUR DIET AND HEALTH:

Once you are comfortable with this healthier way of eating, you can begin to “upgrade” your diet gradually with the following considerations:

  • Variety  – a wide range of colors provides vitamins, minerals, and other essential nutrients – follow the Rainbow!
  • Choose the best quality you can afford – organic and local whenever feasible; ALWAYS avoid GMO
  • Choose Blood Type foods that are Beneficial or Neutral
  • Avoid foods to which you test sensitive or allergic
  • Adjust to seasons: in  summer  fresh fruit and vegetables are abundant; this lighter diet feels much better with the hot weather.  In the winter the diet can be heavier with more proteins and oils
  • Food combining helps efficient digestion. The basics are:

- eat protein  with non starchy vegetables OR

- legumes or grains with non starchy vegetables

- limit fruit to local, seasonal and fresh; eat alone or between meals

- the less different foods combined in one meal, the better.

A good general diet over a period of a day would contain six – ten low glycemic or low carbohydrate vegetables, one protein, and one grain, with two different fruits  between meals if desired.

Unprocessed salt provides trace minerals, and has none of deleterious effects of processed salt.

To understand Candida better, please read: Candida Albicans/Yeast Infections. For Candida, cancer, any serious health condition, and optimum health, this diet is critical, as well as supplementation. Even with the best possible diet, daily needs can rarely be met with food alone.

Q&A: Paw Paw and Contra-Indicated Medications and Supplements

by LoreneB - November 25th, 2013

Question:

Can you take the paw paw if you are taking thyroid medicine?  Pat L.

Answer:

I do not focus on a lot of contraindications for the Paw Paw program. And, to be clear, I refer to the only to the Asimina triloba species of Paw Paw, as this is the plant with the research and results.  There are some websites which list herbs one must not take with Paw Paw. These websites do not return emails or calls requesting research or even  explanations for their statements. If they do not or cannot back up their statements with research, I don’t pay much attention.

According to Dr. Jerry McLaughlin, the world’s expert on Paw Paw, Asimina triloba, the only proven antagonists are those that increase ATP production, such as CoQ10. This is because reduction of ATP to rapidly growing cells such as cancer,  is one of the 4 primary mechanisms by which Paw Paw is effective.  We recommend to not take CoQ10 at the same time as Paw Paw, as it increases ATP production, therefore is counter-productive. After studying with  Dr.  McLaughlin personally, I trust his research and have had results!

As mentioned in my book,  The Paw Paw Program, thyroid “stimulators” are not recommended when following a program using Paw Paw. This may be based on statements similar to one by Dr. Duarte, October, 2008: “You shouldn’t take thyroid stimulators as well, things like 7-Keto or DHEA. These tend to stimulate thyroxin production.”

Understanding the mechanism of action of Paw Paw, we do not want to intentionally stimulate the thyroid when on the Paw Paw program.

HOWEVER, if someone is taking synthroid,  natural porcine thyroid prescription, or a herbal supplement for hypothyroidism, they need to stay on this, to help maintain  normal thyroid function critical for overall health, so one cannot just stop. If the thyroid is removed or destroyed by radioactive treatments, some form of thyroid supplementation is essential for life. This is different than taking high doses of thyroid stimulating herbs, when not needed.

Even if one is taking these thyroid medications or herbs, the benefits from the Paw Paw program still outweigh other options, such as toxic chemotherapy.

Most other supplements are fine, but please be sure to do FIRST the basic 4 as listed in the program in Benoit’s book, rather than too many others that may not enhance the overall effect. Once one is comfortable with the basic 4 components of the program, Paw Paw, Minerals, Omegas and Enzymes, then other herbs may be added to increase overall immunity or to address specific concerns and to ensure optimal functioning of all body systems. Some of those most recommended are in a past article Paw Paw Program Upgrade. Two of these include, Essiac Tea Concentrate and Pau D’Arco. Remember, cancer is not just a lump or tumor, it is a reflection of the overall health of the entire body functioning as a unit, with optimization of the immune system.

Please contact our office if you would like to get the same professional quality herbs that we use successfully in our practice. With a minimum order, we offer a direct account with discount and our support.
