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 Cancer

by LoreneB - June 26th, 2015

It is  well established that exposure to ionizing radiation can trigger mutations and other genetic damage that can contribute to rampant growth of  normal cells. This article presents studies on Breast Cancer, but radiation affects all cells.

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!

Vaccine Awareness & Action

by LoreneB - May 27th, 2015

Awareness

As the question of compulsory vaccinations raises its ugly head in many provinces and states, we encourage everyone to:

  1. spend some time understanding the vaccination issue and
  2. make your voice heard before all of North Americans are being forced into injecting disease into our bloodstreams and those of our children.

The movie BOUGHT is a well balanced and researched documentary. It is not just about vaccines, but encourages us to question the whole medical approach to disease.  Many short clips, many not in the movie, have also been released and are online.

Here are two to get you started:

Dr. Wahls presents some excellent questions that lie behind vaccine challenges to our health. 3 1/2  mins. .

Dr. Stephanie Seneff explains connections between vaccines, the pineal gland, hormones like melatonin and neurological and sleep disorders including autism, MS, dementia, Alzheimers, and Parkinson’s.

She explains how vaccine toxins affect the gut and blood brain barriers. Parts are a little technical, but the bottom line is that one should clearly question not only MMR vaccines, but the proven dangers of the HVP vaccine coupled with  total lack of unscientific evidence  that  it prevents anything.

There are thousands of published scientific studies worldwide  that arrive at conclusions similar to this one from a 2013 Polish study.  “The worsening state of the child population since the 1960’s coincided with increasingly introduced vaccinations. Allergic diseases including asthma, autoimmune diseases, diabetes, and many neurological dysfunctions…ADD, ADHD, autism, seizures…..”.

Mahatma Ghandhi, warned in his 1921 book, A Guide To Health, “Vaccination is a barbarous practice, and it is one of the most fatal of all the delusions in our current time. Conscientious objectors should stand alone, if need be, against the whole world, in defence of their conviction.”

http://www.greenmedinfo.com/blog/gandhis-anti-vaccine-views-ring-true-century-laterA

And since Gandhi’s time, more expensive, and toxic vaccines are added every year, and now they want to force these on us???

The US federal govt. has paid over 2.6 BILLION dollars of tax payers money (not pharmaceutical $) since 1989 for vaccine damages. This represents a fraction of the actual cost of caring for damaged children, as BOUGHT points out clearly how ineffective and unjust this ‘vaccine court’ really is.

 

Take Action:

1. Please read more on our Vaccine archives and continue your own research. Share your information with others, including the those you care about, media and politicians – they all need this awareness to make informed decisions.

2. Create health – it  is not that difficult and good health is worth it! Start with daily nutrition of a Super Shakes.

3. Follow the Four Pillars of Health and dietary recommendations in Lorene’s book, The Paw Paw Program – The “Christopher Columbus” Approach to Cancer – The World IS Round and Cancer CAN Be Treated Naturally.

4. Contact our office if you would like to set up an appointment to discuss a health plan for you or your family.

Paw Paw Success: Ovarian Ca

by LoreneB - April 26th, 2015

Hi Lorene,

I thought that you would like to know that J’s latest blood chemistry results revealed that her white and red blood cell counts are increasing and hopefully they will all be in their respective normal ranges within the next 2-3 weeks. (Ed’s note: white blood cell count had gone dangerously low after chemo treatment and J felt very sick)

She is certainly feeling much better and decided not to undertake any more chemotherapy. She is now exclusively on the Paw Paw Program recommended, as well as the Budwig diet every day and a diet rich in cruciferous vegetables, beans, onions, mushrooms, berries, and nuts mostly from organic sources, as well as wild salmon, sole, free range chicken and eggs, turkey and limited amounts of red meat from lamb and free range beef.

She also takes an array of vitamin and mineral supplements. Additionally, she drinks Green Tea 2-3 times per day as well as lots of filtered water and consumes little refined sugar or processed foods. Would it be okay if she started to take B1,3 D glucan (Transfer Point) as well as curcumin and barley tablets daily or would these interact negatively with your program? Thanks for your support.

Regards,D & J

 

Lorene’s response:

Yes, thank you for sharing the great news that J’s cell count has improved and even better that she is feeling well! I expect that the Chinese Mineral Chi Tonic is playing a large part in both immune improvement and increased energy, in conjunction with the rest of the program.

I do not see any counter-indication against the other things you have suggested, however, I have not worked with these products. We have not found them necessary for the positive results we have had with this program. I find that a really good super shake with proven therapeutic nutrition can help one avoid having to take too many extra pills. Please read: Shake it UP and Super Foods and  Shakes for more info, ingredients that are very beneficial and some recipes.

I think you already have the SynerProtein, and things like your Barley Green can be added, or GreenZone, which contains barley green along with 33 other dense herbs, like Spirulina, which is very nutrient dense. It is also Zone balanced, ie. 30%protein, 30% fat and 40% carbs for optimum blood sugar level. This way it is more FOOD and less PILLS – part of feeling vibrant and healthy!

The other things that have been proven to work for people regaining their health are those listed in Paw Paw Upgrade and one product not mentioned here, but which is often recommended for immune system enhancement is Colostrum, which regenerates and accelerates repair and normal growth of tissues.

Your diet is sounding good, just be careful about “consuming little refined sugar or processed foods.” This of course, would be better to consume zero. There are a few dessert recipes in the Paw Paw book to help satisfy a sweet tooth.

If there are other questions, feel free to book a mini session, or call the office – no charge when less than 10 mins.
Keep up the great diet and healing for both of you, and keep me apprised of continuing progress!

Shingles and Herpes

by LoreneB - April 21st, 2015

Shingles is a latent form of the Herpes or Varicella Zoster Virus, reactivated from previous chicken pox, or contracted when one does not have the natural immunity developed from exposure. The virus lies dormant in the nerve cells adjacent to your spinal cord and can reactivate under various conditions.  Known triggers for reactivation are: STRESS, which can be from emotional causes or from a physical cause such as trauma or injury. Stress, lack of sleep, poor diet, or other illness can all weaken the immune system.

Shingles appear as a painful rash and/or itching blisters, running in a band or belt, usually confined to one side of the body or face. This can be accompanied by fever, aches, and general malaise. Although shingles is not contagious itself, the rash gives off the varicella zoster virus, which could cause someone who comes into contact with it to develop chicken pox.

Allopathic medical treatment prescribes medications to treat  the symptoms of shingles. These may be antivirals or corticosteroids in severe cases. The drugs can be expensive,  may or may not work depending on how soon they are started, do not help ward off future attacks, and carry the risk of side effects or potential drug interactions associated with every prescription.

One natural regime, which is outlined below, has produced excellent results with acute shingles attacks and rashes of many types, including those caused by severe drug reactions, such as man-made antibiotics.

IF-C is a Chinese herbal formula developed by Dr. Sabuti Dharmananda for relieving and clearing all conditions of excess heat, including rashes, pain, head-aches and sinus infections. In Chinese terminology, these conditions are classed as “heat-rising”. For maintenance after the acute episode, some people will follow-up with HRP-C (CA) VS-C (US), which is explained below under Herpes.

Dosage at which people have had success: every 3 – 4 hours (4 –6 times) /day

IF-C       4 capsules
InFlammation, InFection Chinese formula that clears and relieves excess heat

Stress Formula  (CA) / NutriCalm  (US)   2 Tablets
Contains balanced B complex, C, plus calming herbs Hops, Valerian and Passion Flower to relax the nervous system

Burdock (US only)   4 capsules  OR  Oregon Grape Extract (CA & US)   2 ml.
Both are gentle blood and liver cleansers with specific soothing and healing properties for the skin.

 

Take full dose until pain and inflammation is noticeably less. Results will depend on the person, the length and severity and condition, but relief may be noticed within the first two days. Three days after symptoms decrease, you can reduce frequency to every 3 times/day, then several days later decrease dosage by half, but still 3 times per day. Consult with a qualified natural health consultant to aid you. See below for external aids.

 

Herpes

Besides shingles, there are many other types of herpes virus, which affect a very large percentage of the population, up to 60%. Herpes simplex 1, cold sores, can occur on any part of your body including nose, elbows, fingers, stomach, or anus. Genital herpes is called Herpes simplex 2, but it is really just a different form of the same disease, and one can cause the other. Some people have sub-clinical, subtle outbreaks and can shed the virus even when they are asymptomatic, which is one reason this disease has become so prevalent.

Herpes can be effectively treated by a combination of diet, stress reduction and herbal medicine or by drug therapy. Although allopathic medicine says there is no cure, it is possible to go years between outbreaks with management using natural therapeutics.

For all types of herpes, including shingles, consider a program of HRP-C (CA) VS-C (US) for three months, at 6 – 9 per day. Dosage is dependant upon your size, the severity of condition, personal immune status, and lifestyle. HRP-C is a Chinese formulation developed by a Chinese medical doctor, to address Herpes virus, AIDS, and all other viral stressors, which include the common cold and flu. It helps increase overall immunity, and detoxify the liver and eliminate heavy metals. It is also very effective for Candida and other yeast/ parasitic infections.

For regular or periodic herpes, the above dosage of HRP-C can gradually be lowered after 3 months, until a maintenance dose keeps herpes under control. This dosage will be different for everyone, dependent on their size, other aspects of lifestyle and overall health. During times of stress, which can exacerbate an outbreak, the dosage should be increased. If tingling is felt, which can signal an outbreak, taking full dosage will ward off an outbreak or minimize it.

L-Lysine (US) , an essential amino acid, can also be taken at a dosage of three 500mg. capsules per day during an outbreak, and one per day as maintenance. Use some thought when supplementing one particular amino acid for long term, as all amino acids work in synergy. If however, you have some other symptoms of l-lysine deficiency, such as a feeling of helplessness, fatigue, nausea, dizziness, anemia or depression, maintenance with l-lysine may help alleviate these symptoms.

Q & A: MDS – Chlorophyll Benefits & Research

by LoreneB - April 14th, 2015

 

 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
