Q&A: Paw Paw for Prevention

by LoreneB - September 15th, 2015

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.

*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.

Success for Diarrhea, Parasites – Updated

by LoreneB - July 29th, 2015

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I can’t believe how fast the Psyllium Hulls Combo worked – stopped my diarrhea in its tracks!

One dose last night and again this morning – and I have had only one BM so far today with lovely brown, formed lumps. Excuse the detail, but I’m so happy to have no loose stool for the first time in seven weeks!  And I trust the Para Pak (CA) / Para Cleanse (US with added Paw Paw), is socking it to those nasty microbes.

I’m reading a great book, btw, called “Gut – the inside story of our body’s most underrated organ” by Giulia Enders. Fascinating!  See *

Thanks again – I’ll let you know how I’m doing in a couple of weeks.

DR from ON

 

Author’s Comment: this person had intestinal problems with explosive diarrhea 4-6/day, bad cramping and low energy for  7 wks, since return from a European vacation. All signs of parasite infestation, although medical tests showed “all normal”.

She is also taking Probiotic 11 to re-establish correct bowel flora.

Please read HOW important the colon is.

 

If you are having any kind of bowel, intestinal or digestive problems, please contact us for personal assistance.

 

Update 3 weeks later:

I am happy to report that thanks to your advice, I have completely recovered from my intestinal illness – and did not have to take antibiotics! It’s possible I picked up a microbe here in Ontario rather than in Europe:

I completed the two weeks of Para-Pak treatment and took the Psyllium Hulls Combo whenever needed, per your instructions. Thanks again!

Vaccines, autism & brain immuno-excito-toxicty

by LoreneB - July 24th, 2015

 
An informative 2 minute+ video excerpt from the movie BOUGHT, presents  3 Doctor’s summaries of challenges with the current vaccination of children. A few pertinent quotes:
 

M.D.Patrick Gentempo:
“Even if individual vaccines might be safe, imagine now combining all these, put together into a little infant that’s just born,  total of 26 of them in it’s first 18 months of life and you’re playing with real fire here.”

Toni Bark, M.D.:
“Giving the HPV vaccine which lasts 3-5 years to a new born? Are they going to have sex before they are 5?   There is a disconnect here. … giving somebody, day one of life, a vaccine that’s never been tested on infants, can’t even legally be tested on newborns, makes zero sense unless it’s lining your pocket.”

Tim O’Shea D.C.:
“In 1993 we were spending three billion dollars on vaccines in the entire world. By the year 2000 it was about twenty billion dollars a year globally that we were spending on vaccines. You have to  follow the money and you can  see how processes and procedure in our culture can be bought.”

The Central Mechanism By Which Vaccines Induce Autism – The Danger of Excessive Vaccination During Brain Development: Dr. Russell Blaylock addressing  the National Autism Association (NAA).

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XX6l8-EQGYQ


This lecture  is critical to watch, especially for new parents who are smart enough to question the medical immunization issue versus building lifelong health.

It is a difference between weakening or strengthening the immune system NATURALLY and for life. If you do not have 1 hour and 9 minutes  to listen to the entire presentation, invest at least 4 minutes to watch minutes 38 – 42.

Can you afford not to listen to 4 minutes for the sake of a child’s health? 

Here are some important highlights presented and backed by Dr. Blaylock’s research.

“When vaccine toxins are injected they stimulate systemic immunity that causes the microglia of the brain to increase inflammatory cytokines and glutamates within minutes.

This process of priming of microglial begins in utero with  the recommended flu shot for the mother, (LB: H1N1, Avian, whatever is “chosen” as this year’s fear mongering money maker),  is increased with the Hep B shot at birth, then further placed on over-drive with each subsequent vaccine injected, which in the US now amount to 26 vaccines by age 1 yr.  

This brain inflammatory process is happening during the most intense period of brain development of the child. The accumulative effect causes an enormous secretion of inflammatory cytokines and glutamate which can and has caused death, SIDS, encephalitic crying caused by brain inflammation.

With frequent vaccinations causing repeated brain inflammation  the accumulative effect can cause adult disorders including seizure, behavioral problems, OCD and depression throughout life. Through this constant brain stimulation, the brain is never able to heal.”

 

WHO WOULD DO THIS TO AN INFANT?

“Human  immune stimulation during pregnancy is a danger to the unborn child.

There is NO science to support the frequently postulated scare tactic that a pregnant mother is at  a greater risk than any other population. But there IS repeated research showing a 7-14 times higher incidence of autism and  schizophrenia due to immuno-excito toxic response, which is not healthy to the fetus.”

Common toxins in vaccines such as mercury, ethyl mercury, (thimersol IS a mercury derivative) and aluminum, are all powerful microglial stimulators. These adjuvant toxins are cumulative and no studies have ever been done on their additive effect when 5 or 6 different vaccines are given at the same time, and in such frequently repeated dosages.
 

This study completed by UBC in 2012,  Death after Quadrivalent Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Vaccination: Causal or Coincidental? warns that their may be a causal link to death due to neurological autoimmune vasculitis (simplified:  brain inflammation) that needs further evaluation. I, as a parent, or a young woman would not choose to inject this into any young woman’s blood stream.

Successes with Silver Gel

by LoreneB - July 21st, 2015

A 72 yr. old man, had a bad accident when he was a teenager, that crushed his leg from the knee down. In the last few years his foot was chronically infected, he took many rounds of antibiotics. The infection and redness had spread from foot up to his knees. Finally the medical suggestion was amputation just above the knee. He was bound and determined to save his leg, so he purchased both Silver Sol Gel to apply topically – 2-4 times a day and Silver Sol liquid, which he took 1 tsp./5ml.-2-3 times internally.

2 weeks after this treatment, the infection & redness was almost gone and he has not had any recurring infection. He cannot believe the difference and he is also feeling so much better!

Note from Lorene Benoit: Please be aware of the differences between silver colloidal and silver solution.

Studies Show Radiation Causes Breast Cancer

by LoreneB - June 26th, 2015

It is  well established that exposure to ionizing radiation can trigger mutations and other genetic damage and cause normal cells to grow rampantly.

So it seems amazing how mainstream medicine frequently dismisses the idea that medical imaging tests from mammograms to CT scans do not play a role in causing breast cancer. Take this example from the web site for Cornell University’s Program on Breast Cancer and Environmental Risk Factors:

In answer to the question “Is ionizing radiation a cause of breast cancer?”, the Cornell experts say “Yes ….. female breast tissue is highly susceptible to radiation effects.” But then they disregard the possible hazard from mammography x-rays saying the risk …”should not be a factor in individual decisions to undergo this procedure. The same is true for most diagnostic x-ray procedures.”

If that’s not confusing enough, they turn around and state: “Nonetheless, unnecessary radiation exposures should be avoided and continued vigilance is required to ensure that the benefits associated with specific procedures outweigh the future risks.”

Why radiation causes breast cancer

Common sense suggests there is plenty of reason to be worried about radiation causing breast cancer. And now there’s a new reason to be concerned. Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have discovered that radiation exposure can alter cells’ micro-environment (the environment surrounding cells). And that greatly raises the odds that future cells will become cancerous.

The reason is that signals from a cell’s micro-environment, altered by radiation exposure, can cause a cell’s phenotype to change by regulating or de-regulating the way a cell uses its genes. The result can be a cell that not only becomes pre-cancerous but that passes this pre-malignant condition on to future cells.

“Our work shows that radiation can change the micro-environment of breast cells ….. a much greater potential to be cancerous,” stated Paul Yaswen, cell biologist and breast cancer research specialist with Berkeley Lab’s Life Sciences Division.

“Many in the cancer research community have been slow to acknowledge and incorporate in their work the idea that cells in human tissues are not independent entities, but are highly communicative with each other and with their micro-environment,” he added.

To find out what radiation exposure does to the cellular environment and how it could impact the future of cell behavior, the Berkeley Lab scientists grew normal breast tissue in culture dishes for about a week. Then they zapped each set with a single treatment of a low-to-moderate dose of radiation and compared the irradiated cells to sets of breast cells that had not been irradiated.

The published results showed that four to six weeks after the radiation exposure, the normal breast cancer cells showed premature cell senescence (aging & deterioration).

The researchers pointed out that the levels of radiation used in their experiments were not as much as a woman would be exposed to during a single routine mammogram but were comparable to those a woman could receive during a CT scans or radiotherapy “and could represent sources of concern.”

Women are often pushed to get annual mammograms, raising their overall radiation exposure through the years. Mammographies are referred to in Lorene Benoit’s book:  The Paw Paw Program – The “Christopher Columbus” Approach to Cancer – The World IS Round and Cancer CAN Be Treated Naturallyon p age 34-35.  Questions to Ask Your Doctor is  a good starting point anytime radiation techniques are recommended.

A report from JAMA  found that the start of screening mammography programs throughout Europe has been associated with increased incidence of breast cancer (http://www.naturalnews.com/024901.html).

And a Johns Hopkins study published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute concluded radiation exposure from mammograms could trigger malignancies in women at risk for genetic breast cancer (http://www.naturalnews.com/025560_cancer_brst_cancer_mammograms.html).

ALL Electro Magnetic Frequencies and Radiation (EMF and EMR)  are causing health challenges, including wireless, smart meters, and yes cell phones. The cumulative effect is that we are creating a microwave within which we are being baked! This recent Canadian study is one of many worldwide. Note Recommendations #10 and 11 relate specifically to cancer, but all 12 recommendation relate to health!

The science is clear as many countries become aware – it’s the people like you who need to insist our health be taken into consideration above profits!

Coffee Enemas

by LoreneB - June 18th, 2015

 

Coffee enemas have been used for pain relief since WW I, when pain medication was in short supply.  They have been part of Dr. Gerson’s cancer therapy since 1928. Research has since shown that coffee enemas help activate the liver’s defenses, plus open the bile duct so the liver can release accumulated poisons. As a bitter, coffee also helps stimulate the bowel, which can then eliminate toxins. Daily bowel movements 2- 3 times per day ensures that toxins do not accumulate and reabsorb from the bowel into the bloodstream.

As one heals the body through proper nutrition and flooding the body with the needed vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids and immune building herbs, the body will begin to detoxify. This  healing helps the body increase apoptosis, or die off of renegade cells, malignant cells and tumours. Coffee enemas can aid this process. This is one protocol mentioned on page 70 of  The Paw Paw Program – The “Christopher Columbus” Approach to Cancer – The World IS Round and Cancer CAN Be Treated Naturally.

Because coffee enemas help  relieve pain, they are often recommended for conditions such as headaches, including migraines, arthritis, fevers, the flu and colds. The elimination of toxins  help the liver restore, rebuild and heal.

Enemas are a fast way to help cleanse the body during any illness. They should not be uncomfortable; take your time and massage that most important organ of your body to enhance the benefits.

How to do a thorough coffee enema, or colema,  is clearing outlined in Dr. Jensen’s “Tissue Cleansing Through Bowel Management”, a hallmark book for understanding colon health and cleansing.  Many websites also detail how to give an enema safely. An enema bag can be purchased inexpensively at any pharmacy. It looks like a hot water bottle with one open end, a hose, nozzle and clip to control flow. If you have any standard hot water bottle, you can also just purchase an attachment kit. For infants and small children you can use a bulb syringe.

There are many other enemas that offer healing properties:

Catnip or yarrow enema for bringing down a fever to a safe temperature, so it can continue to do its healing work of burning out unwanted microbes. A tepid water enema can also be useful for controlling fever.

Garlic enema for parasites. If temperature is close to body temperature, this enema can be retained 15 minutes for greater effect.

Hydrated Bentonite enema for cleansing and healing.

Aloe Vera Gel enema for irritated colon and healing after color-rectal radiation.

Alain’s Green Goddess Dressing

by LoreneB - June 4th, 2015

 

This recipe is from page 245 of Lorene Benoit’s book:  The Paw Paw Program – The “Christopher Columbus” Approach to Cancer – The World IS Round and Cancer CAN Be Treated Naturally.

We have been asked to share this so many times by friends who rave about it, so here it is! It started as Lorene’s Green Goddess ‘weed’ dressing many years ago, but as Alain is now chief cook, I renamed it in my book, to honour all the support AND good food he provides on a daily basis. Good men have some Goddess in them, too!

It is an excellent dressing which can be used on salads, vegetables, grains or meats to add essential fatty acids, herbal nutrition and flavour. The apple cider vinegar or lemon juice also help pre-digest salads, like ceviche. I often suggest adding dressing 1/2 hour before – the wilting that occurs is an indicator that the cellulose is being broken down. Chapter 10 offers twenty recipes to help people get started on healthy eating, which is a major pillar of both healing and maintaining optimum health.

Alain’s Green Goddess Dressing

Basic ingredients:
• 1 cup (250 ml) cold pressed olive oil
• 1 Tbsp. (15 ml) lemon juice and/or
• 1 Tbsp. (15 ml) apple cider vinegar (pure unpasteurized)

This is the basic recipe so play with it!

What makes the dressing delicious and nutritious is the addition of as many herbs, weeds and other ingredients that your imagination, your fridge and your taste buds allow. This is what makes it your Green Goddess Dressing:
• Garlic cloves (1 – up to your tolerance)
• Onions – 2 Tbsp. to ½ cup
• 1/8 tsp. mustard powder
• Chives, oregano, marjoram, parsley, sage, rosemary or thyme. (like the song)
(Lorene sometimes adds a few fresh leaves or ½ tsp. dried of any of the following lemon balm, mint, spearmint, fennel or catnip for accent flavour.)
• Weeds such as chickweed, nettles, dandelion, sorrel greens all add vitamins, minerals and different flavours.
• Fresh greens such as kale, beet tops, spinach

For extra nutrition add miso, engevita yeast, Bragg’s aminos to taste

Preparation:
Blend at high speed until all ingredients are well liquefied.
Other options, dependent upon your food preferences, blood type and condition.

For creamier/ranch:
3 Tbsp. healthy mayonnaise (optional)
2 Tbsp. organic sour cream or yogurt (optional)

For “Thousand Island” : blend in fresh tomatoes

For Caesar: add a raw egg (coddled first in hot water 1 minute), mustard, lots of garlic, and optional capers, anchovies, Worcestershire, Parmesan cheese.

For additional Essential Fatty Acids, you can add coconut oil, hemp oil, omegas – just check the flavour.
Use freely on salad, vegetables, meat, fish, poultry, eggs. At least two tablespoons per day will help your intake of healthy oils.
Whether you chop ingredients or not before blending will depend on the capability of your blender. We use VitaMix, and can throw everything in whole. Contact us to receive a discount on Vita Mix, or offer Affiliate #06-003329.

The benefit of a homemade dressing is no sugar, no chemicals, no GMOs, and at the same time, get more flavour and save money! We make almost a litre at a time and keep it in the fridge, on hand cost.

You can invest in your health now, or invest in sickness later. Your choice!

Cheryn Donaldson McInnis, Specialized Instructor & Practitioner SIP and Kinisiology, Vancouver, BC

One trained practitioner from Calgary, Alberta wrote this in her evaluation:
I learned to identify herbs out in the field, herbs which I have used with people for many years but never knew what they looked like.  It was great to see them in their natural habitat.  It helped me get to know them better as living beings! ”
Monica Hirai, Herbal & Homeopathic Consultant,  Calgary, AB.

I was one of the lucky participants, and it was so worth the time and cost. The setting was lovely, the other participants were generous in sharing their own experiences, the food was delicious, and the learning was boundless!
