What past participants have to say:

When is your next Intensive? I know some people who want to take this course. I loved it and learned so much, as well as feeling refreshed before heading back to my busy life and health business. 
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! Lorene is a born teacher, and the breadth of her expertise is amazing to me. This was just the workshop I needed to get me started in my own learning about herbs. Thank you! 
Miriam S. Duncan, BC

Vaccine Awareness & Action

by LoreneB - May 27th, 2015


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.”

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.



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. L-lysine can be found in fish, chicken, eggs, garbanzo beans and comfrey.

For External Relief: HRP-C /VS-C in liquid glycerine form can be applied to sores. Tei Fu Oil or  Massage Lotion, a blend of essential oils, is helpful for pain and itch relief and to help sores heal more quickly.

Silver Shield Gel also destroys viruses, decreases inflammation and speeds healing. Contact author for separate write-up on helpful external applications and recipe options.

Q & A: MDS – Chlorophyll Benefits & Research

by LoreneB - April 14th, 2015



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.



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?

by LoreneB - March 30th, 2015


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



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!

Herbal Doctrine of Signatures

by LoreneB - February 13th, 2015

In herbal medicine, this is called The Doctrine of Signatures. Looking at a plant will often give clues as to the medicinal uses it offers us.  A good example is Hawthorne (Crataegus oxyacanthoides).

The berry looks very like our heart  and Hawthorne is a “thinking herb” for our heart – if the heart beat is too fast, it will calm it down; if it is too weak, it will strengthen and speed up the muscle. As a cardio-tonic it will help regulate both low and high blood pressure. 

Another example is Milk Thistle (Silibum marianum) – the spiky spines protect the plant, just as Milk Thistle protects our liver.

Colours, shapes and smells are all clues that ancient humans used to understand the active benefits of God’s pharmacy.  Herbs are concentrated powerhouses of nutrition, and common fruits and vegetables are actually first degree herbs that can be and should be consumed daily for our better health.

Chapters 6 and 7 of Lorene Benoit’s book, The Paw Paw Program – A “Christopher Columbus SApproach To Cancer…The World IS Round and Cancer CAN Be Treated Naturally” includes extensive dietary recommendations critical to optimum health and prevention of chronic conditions. Here are some pictures to help you remember why these are so good for our health!

A sliced Carrot looks like the human eye. The pupil, iris and radiating lines look just like the human eye… and YES, science now shows carrots greatly enhance blood flow to and function of the eyes.

Tomato has four chambers and is red. The heart has four chambers and is red. All of the research shows tomatoes are loaded with lycopine and are indeed pure heart and blood food.

Grapes hang in a cluster that has the shape of the heart. Each grape looks like a blood cell and all of the research today shows grapes are also profound heart and blood vitalizing food.

Walnut looks like a little brain, a left and right hemisphere, upper cerebrums and lower cerebellums.  Even the wrinkles or folds on the nut are just like the neo-cortex. We now know walnuts help develop more than three (3) dozen neuron-transmitters for brain function.

Kidney Beans actually heal and help maintain kidney function and yes, they look exactly like the human kidneys.
Celery, Bok Choy, Rhubarb and many more look just like bones. These foods specifically target bone strength. Bones are 23% sodium and these foods are 23% calcium. If you don’t have enough calcium in your diet, the body pulls it from the bones, thus making them weak. These foods replenish the skeletal needs of the body.
Avocadoes, Eggplant and Pears target the health and function of the womb and cervix of the female – they look just like these organs. Today’s research shows that when a woman eats one avocado a week, it balances hormones, sheds unwanted birth weight, and prevents cervical cancers. And how profound is this?  It takes exactly nine (9) months to grow an avocado from blossom to ripened fruit. There are over 14,000 photolytic chemical constituents of nutrition in each one of these foods (mo dern science has only studied and named about 141 of them).
Figs are full of seeds and hang in twos when they grow. Figs increase the mobility of male sperm and increase the numbers of Sperm as well to overcome male sterility. 
Sweet Potatoes look like the pancreas and actually balance the glycemic index of diabetics.
Olives assist the health and function of the ovaries
Oranges, Grapefruits, and other Citrus fruits look just like the mammary glands of the female and actually assist the health of the breasts and the movement of lymph in and out of the breasts.
Onions look like the body’s cells. Research shows onions clear waste materials from all of the body cells. They even produce tears which wash the epithelial layers of the eyes. Garlic also helps eliminate waste materials and dangerous free radicals from the body.

Vitamin D and your health

by LoreneB - February 11th, 2015

If you can get some sunshine – get it! Even on a cloudy day getting outside will help you absorb some Vit. D. If you are housebound or totally skin covered, with clothing or sunscreen, then you need a good Vit D3 supplement. Considering the benefits of Vit. D for bones, immunity, mental outlook, cancer prevention…..why not add this to your daily health program?

Since posting this originally inDecember, 2009, there has been so much research on Vitamin. D3, I have been prompted to add onto this article, rather than have people email for the 9 page article, which you can still do.

March 2007 edition of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition lashed out at the conventional media for its inaccurate reporting of Vitamin D supplementation. Since then, continual research has shown that the majority of those living North of Tropic of Cancer and South of Tropic of Capricorn are deficient, especially during winter months.

When one considers the wide reaching benefits, which I summarize below, and the inexpensive availability of this supplement, the medical community is negligent in not promoting higher intake. Health Canada is even more negligent by lowering the limits available in supplements, despite the plethora of research indicating otherwise.

Benefits of a quality, absorbable Vitamin D3:

  • Cancer

connection between Vitamin D3 and protection from cancer has been published since the 1940s, when doctors discovered that individuals at sunny latitudes had a reduced rate of deaths from cancer. Since then, studies have strongly suggested that Vitamin D3 deficiency is associated with an increased risk of developing many forms of cancer including breast, ovarian, prostate and colon cancer. Many people who are getting positive results with The Paw Paw Program for cancer, also add 4-10,000 units of Vit. D3 to their program.

  • Bone Health

    including osteopenia, osteoporosis and osteomalacia and arthritis. 2015 research indicates that increased knee pain during winter months is not due to the cold as much as it is lowered levels of Vit. D.

  • Depression

  • Cognitive Enhancement

  • Immune System Enhancement

  • Back Pain

  • Multi-Talented Nutrient

Vitamin D3 deficiency has been linked to a host of other conditions such as high blood pressure, fibromyalgia, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and an increased risk of pre-eclampsia and insulin resistance during pregnancy. Low Vitamin D3 levels have been linked to an increased prevalence of early age-related macular degeneration.

A growing number of researchers who have widely studied Vitamin D3 are almost begging the general public to consume more of this important nutrient. Due to Vitamin D3’s high safety profile in doses up to 10,000 IU per day and because of the wide role it plays in our health, consuming 2,000 to 10,000 IU per day of this nutrient at times of the year when sunlight is scarce is a prudent way to improve overall health.

Q & A: Chronic Throat Irritation

by LoreneB - February 1st, 2015


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


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.
