Q&A Paw Paw for my Cat?



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



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

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


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

Is Paw Paw the same thing as Papaya Leaf?  Dan



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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

Cancer Prevention and Treatment Approaches


As I was doing some research on Colorectal Cancer for natural health classes in Winnipeg,  Nova Scotia, and for my online interviews, I was surprised to see the change in Canadian Health Statistics. US and Canadian statistics are usually similar, so this is the North American trend.

Cancer has been the #1 cause of death since 2011. 

Many people still think heart and vascular are #1, but even combining heart disease (all types) with cerebrovascular (strokes), it is still close to 5% less than cancer. This despite the BILLIONS of dollars raised and spent running around looking for the cure!

The chart on page 26 of my book,  The Paw Paw Program,  shows cancer care costs in 2010  at $124.57 BILLION.

While we continue to fund raise and spend billions of dollars “finding” and “running for” the cure, selling daffodils and hot dogs, are we any closer to understanding the true causes OR doing anything about them?

How much money is being spent on eliminating toxic chemicals that are polluting our air, water and soil? How much money is being spent on educating people about the health hazards of untreated infections, parasites, yeasts, viruses, or how to improve our natural immunity to avoid these and treat them naturally? Here is a synopsis of some information you can learn from The Paw Paw Program – The “Christopher Columbus” Approach to Cancer – The World IS Round and Cancer CAN Be Treated Naturally.


What to Do To When You Have Become a Statistic

and even more important

What To Do To Avoid Becoming a Statistic

Prevention is recommended, as all people develop cancerous cell growth. A healthy immune system keeps abnormal cell growth under control.

Taking an active role in your health is critical. Remember, it’s your body and your call.

  • Remove all toxic chemicals from your food, drinks, air, and home as well as hygienic products. Stop adding more toxins into your body. There is much you can do – talk to your Natural Health Care practitioner for ideas as to how and what you can do. If you do not have one, make an appointment with the author of this book.
  • STOP smoking, alcohol, coffee, tea, pop, all refined sugars, are number one step.
  • Balance pH levels of acid and alkaline – greens are your main ally for this – if you do not have plentiful organic sources of fresh greens, use GreenZone (CA)/ Ultimate Green Zone (US)
  • Oxygenate and strengthen your blood with Liquid Chlorophyll, macro and trace minerals, EFAs, and other suggested natural supplements.
  • Take Protease Plus Enzymes to help metabolize protein, keep the blood and lymphatic systems clean and help breakdown cancer cells.
  • Exercise daily to move your lymphatic system. Your lymph moves only when you do. Even 10 – 15 minutes two or three times a day will help.
  • Build Immune System with help from your Natural Health Care Practitioner. Astragalus, Colostrum and Silver Shield (silver sol) are all powerful aids for the immune system.
  • Learn how to nourish the body without feeding the cancer cells.  Super Foods will make a difference.
  • Reduce stress in your life or at the very least, learn how to support your body when under a lot of stress.
  • Your body needs rest to heal. Take rest breaks during the day and sleep for minimum 8 hours at night.Drink lots of pure water.  6 – 10 glasses a day is usually a good rule to follow, based on weight and activity. Hot water and herbal teas are also good.  Water helps flush out the toxins from your body.
  • If you are strong enough, a variety of cleanses may be suggested for you. Examples: Liver/Blood, Bowel, Parasite, Lymphatic, Yeast or Heavy Metal Cleanses.
  • Add a natural bowel stimulant with or without fibre if you are not eliminating at least one bowel movement a day. Two – three is better. LBS II is an excellent peristalsis aid.
  • Detoxify, build, detoxify, build – pay attention to your body to know which to do when. When in doubt book a phone or Skype consultation with an expert – Lorene Benoit has been helping people for over 35 years.

Newly Diagnosed: Consider a consult with a Natural Health Consultant to help you undertake the following suggestions. You know that cancer can be prevented; it can also be reversed. It will require some lifestyle changes and some effort on your part. One important thing is to know that people do heal cancer with natural, time proven remedies and to know and believe that you can beat this disease. Have positive hope, no matter what the prognosis is. Your body is designed to heal itself and become healthy again but it needs full help from you. In addition to above suggestions, you will also want to consider the following:

  • Support the area of the body where the cancer is. You may want to add herbs specific to your type of cancer. For example, for cancer of the prostate, support with Saw Palmetto Extract, Liver with a liver formula, as your NHC recommends.
  • MOST IMPORTANT:       This is the easy part.       Follow the Paw Paw program as per directions to start and increase only on the advice of your Natural Health Care Practitioner. The Paw Paw Program gives more detail, in fact 284 pages of information that is well researched, affordable and easy to understand and follow.
  • Depending on your cancer, you may be required to take this for 4 months – a couple of years.
  • For those who have had cancer, maintenance  is highly recommended.
  • Paw Paw can be used along with Allopathic Medical Therapy; in fact it can enhance chemotherapy effectiveness.

It is important to work with a natural health care practitioner or consultant who is comfortable working with cancer. The amount of research can be overwhelming. You would not try to strip down your car engine and rebuild it without assistance or previous knowledge. Consider this, as you need to rebuild your body to eliminate cancer or any other disease.

A qualified NHC can assist in the optimal selection of a program for you and in monitoring your results. This professional can work with others with whom you choose to share your healing journey.

Remember, cancer can be beaten naturally! Believe it! Be proactive in your cure – do not leave it all up to the medical community – work with them to help yourself.

This program is designed to enhance the natural healing abilities of your body, rather than ‘fight’ any particular disease. It is one part of a comprehensive program, including corrective diet, emotional clearing, exercise as required, proper elimination and other natural health and life building aspects.

This program is not counter-indicated with orthodox medical treatment, such as surgery, chemotherapy or radiation. It can enhance the effectiveness and decrease the negative side effects of these approaches, should you choose them.

You can  have any of the above therapeutic nutritionals delivered to your home. To ensure you are getting professional products that exceed pharmaceutical grade, direct discount pricing,  and support in choosing the best program for your specifics, please contact Lorene Benoit Health Services, MHH, CHC, BEd.

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


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


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.

Which part of the Paw Paw is best for rampant cell growth?


Hi there, I am thinking about ordering your book but before i do i have a question. Ive been doing some research on paw paw trees being a cancer cure and everything i found was talking about a certain type being the one that cures cancer. The type is the papaya located on the golden coast. I live in southern Illinois where the paw paw strain is asimina triloba. I was wondering if i took the stems and leaves and boiled them for two hours, then extract the liquid and drink it,would it have the same healing properties? To tell you the truth i am boiling the leaves as we speak as my father brought me the leaves today from the woods. Im a 24 year old male and to my knowledge i do not have cancer. However i am all about prevention. Please email me back, this is a subject that has kept me up night and day with frustration because i cant find the answers  I’m looking for. Thank you for your time and i look forward to your response, sincerely, eli.


Yes, Asimina triloba is the correct species of Paw Paw that has been shown scientifically to inhibit rampant cell growth. However there are many other factors involved that have been discovered in  over 30 years of research. From my book,  The Paw Paw Program, A “Christopher Columbus” Approach to Cancer, Dr. McLaughlin’s videos and the  links below, you will see that not only what part of the correct species is used in critical, as is what time of the year it is harvested and how it is processed. The end product is standardized and tested for efficacy, purity, potency and quality with equipment that very few herbal companies can afford; which is why we have used Nature’s Sunshine products in our health business more than 23 years. Please read these two past posts:

Paw Paw, Graviola and Cordyceps

The following chart is from Dr. Jerry McLaughlin’s research slides, showing what concentration in ppm is required from each plant part to achieve a lethal rate of 50% in brine shrimp assays.
Brine Shrimp Lethality and %  Yields from plant parts of Asimina triloba
Plant Part Extracted                 LC50 in ppm      % age yield
Twigs                                       0.042 (0.20-0.09)        1.78
Unripe fruit                               0.060 (0.03-0.08)       5.11
Root wood                                 0.060 (0.03-0.08)         1.27
Seed                                        0.065 (0.03-0.10)     4.03
Stem bark   (7-88 )                     0.077 (0.04-0.12)         2.71
Stem bark  (10-90)                      0.102 (0.06-0.15)          1.96
Root bark                                   0.135 (0.09-0.21)          2.72
Stem, wood, & leaves                 0.202 (0.14-0.31)          1.6
Stem wood                                   4.86 (0.37-11.93)          0.9
Leaves                                        53.6 (33-82)               4.36
From this chart you can see that the leaves require an average of 53.6 ppm to achieve the same effectiveness as only .042 ppm of the twig preparation. The bark of the twigs harvested at their peak, determined by testing, is also a very renewable source of biomass.
Graviola and soursop tea and fruit are fine foods, but have little of the active ingredients s that make Paw Paw, Asimina triloba effective in stopping reproduction of cancer cells.
And yes, I agree that taking Paw Paw as directed for  prevention is a good idea, especially for those with a genetic predisposition to cancer and those who have had previous cancers. Paw Paw is also a very effective anti-parasitical and as parasites are responsible for multiple health issues, a seasonal parasite cleanse is an excellent health regimen. In the US. Paw Paw is part of a 10 day Para Cleanse; in other countries, we often suggest the addition of Paw Paw to Para Pak.
We hope this answers your questions! Please contact our office to order either the Paw Paw Program book or Paw Paw. We can help you get the correct product at member prices, as well as offering support by answering questions such as these. Should you choose to purchase elsewhere, then please direct your questions to your supplier. This helps us to maintain exceptional service to our clients and members.


Thanks Lorene for bringing this expert  to Vancouver Island. We found Dr. McLaughlin’s talk to be most informative and plan to purchase a bottle of the Paw Paw with our next order.  Want to make a cream paste for skin challenges!

I think we must have told you about our friend who was diagnosed with lymph cancer in the neck and thyroid area about 6 years ago.  His surgery was scheduled for about 5 weeks down the line, so we got him first on the black walnut for a couple of weeks, then on the Paw Paw and Protease Plus for the remaining weeks only stopping a couple of days prior to the surgery.  He had a few treatments after of chemo….but 6 years after, there is no cancer!!!

S& M, Victoria, BC.


I have been feeling very low energy for months, and doctors cannot find anything wrong other than an elevated temperature; so they thought it might be a low grade viral infection. After hearing Dr. McLaughlin speak about how effective Paw Paw is against bacteria, viruses, parasites and cancer, I purchased a bottle of Paw Paw to see if this would help. With only 1 capsule, this was the first time I have slept through the night, without having to get up for bathroom, in over 30 years! Within 2 days I was feeling an increase in energy, and I am starting to feel stronger evach day. I am only taking 1 with breakfast and one with dinner.

I feel like the Paw Paw is gently clearing built up toxins, virus, or any other type of infection from every part of my body. I have been sharing the benefits of Paw Paw with a  lot of people who I think can benefit from this herb, not just those with cancer!

Paw Paw Program and Chemotherapy – Q&A


Just wondering what your experience is with the Paw Paw program when someone is also on Chemo?
My client has been told not to take anything but the Collatrim. 

Doc says:

Omega 3 is a strong antioxidant and harmful during chemo;
protease has anti platelet effects ?
chinese mineral tonic, flax hull and paw paw increase the risk of bleeding and blood clots which the chemo also does.
They said as soon as chemo is over to get back on any program that is helpful for my health.


Open minded oncologists who take any time at all to look at the research will not veto ANY of these supplements. Rather, they should be embracing them for the health of the patient.

Some truth about a couple of the doctor’s comments:

Protease Plus increases the flexibility of red blood cells, not bleeding.

Omega 3s inhibit platelet aggregation, so in very high quantities could cause increased bleeding. Chemotherapy, on the other hand, can damage platelets and thus bleeding, but the dosages of Omegas recommended on Paw Paw program would have little effect.

In more than 8 yrs. of researching Paw Paw I have never seen ONE scientific review to support : “paw paw increase the risk of bleeding and blood clots”.

First, those two effects are contradictory – it either promotes bleeding OR it promotes clotting – not both because they are opposite physiological functions! I hope the doctor didn’t really say this.

Secondly, have your client ask doctor for research to support his statements.  The public NEEDS to help make doctors responsible for their comments and treatments. Especially when results indicate that the medical approach is NOT working as presented by most doctors. It is worthwhile reading  this article about the research presented in the Truth About Cancer Global Quest, which contains this information:

“One of the truths about cancer is that medically approved treatments of surgery, chemo and radiation experience a dismal rate for 5 year survival, averaging 2.1%. Yes 2.1 %!  (stats from US Journal of Oncology).”

Thirdly, have client show him Lorene Benoit’s  book, The Paw Paw Program, or ask him to watch Dr. McLaughlin’s videos, all free on-line, which summarize 30+ yrs. research, and  prove that Paw Paw is not only more effective than many chemotherapeutic agents, but also HELPS chemo to do it job better because of its effects on the MDR pump. This is explained more fully in the book and on some of the videos.

It is unlikely the doctor is aware of any of this research or he would be encouraging the patient to take it concurrently. Doctors that negate supplements do so for the simple reasons that they do not understand them nor have the time to study them. Doctors that DO take the time to look outside the medical box become famous like Deepak Chopra, Andrew Weil, Hugo Rodier, Christian Northrup, Ray Strand….

Make sure your client is familiar with the “Questions to Ask Your Doctor” in my book, The Paw Paw Program; go equipped to get the best care and take control of your own health.

Please refer to this relevant article: Are Vitamins Safe? Who To Believe?

Bottom line:

If there is a safe, natural herb that has proven more effective in killing cancer cells than synthetic chemotherapy, without damaging side effects and without destroying healthy cells or the immune system, PLUS it helps the chemo be more effective, why would I NOT take it, other than because of fear instilled by someone who has done no research on natural healing in general, or specifically on this program?

For another perspective  on cancer  I highly recommend reading “The Medical Mafia” by Dr. Guylaine Lanctot, if you can find the book. The Trilogy of Lies, part Three:  Cancer Is A Mystery, pgs. 145-163 is particularly enlightening. ISBN 0-9644126-0-8

Political Scene

A shift in universal consciousness occurred in 2012 that woke many people up with a jolt. We became acutely aware of the difference between our conditioning and our true natures. We realize we don’t have to be afraid of each other and that, left to our own devices, Humans are wonderful love-seeking Beings. We are awake to the nature of our social and economic structures…….. and becoming more aware.

$9.84 trillion is in the hands of a mere 92,000 individuals. In other words, 0.001% of the population holds more than the Gross Domestic Product of every country except the EU and the US. The world’s richest people have taken advantage of cross-border tax laws in order to put away a shocking $20.31 trillion in offshore banks.

More people are realizing the inequities and making a change. The following is not easy reading, but for the open mind, it can help us be ready to reclaim our right to BE!



And some people make changes in small ways that make a BIG difference, as this 10 minute TED talk shows guerilla gardening. Thanks to Tracey of Cowichan Friends and Eye Opener Education Films for their great sharing!

Success Stories

We encourage you to share your stories with others on our website or via email. Success stories can be read at:



Medical Scene

Industry-sponsored trials give favourable results for drugs, by burying negative trials. This is a well-documented problem, and it has been researched extensively without anybody stepping in to take effective action.

“Publication bias” — the process whereby negative results go unpublished — is endemic throughout the whole of medicine and academia; regulators have failed to do anything about it, despite decades of data showing the size of the problem.

Because researchers are free to bury any result they please, patients are exposed to harm on a staggering scale throughout the whole of medicine, from research to practice. Doctors can have no idea about the true effects of the treatments they give. Does this drug really work best, or have I simply been deprived of half the data? Nobody can tell. Is this expensive drug worth the money, or have the data simply been massaged? No one can tell. Will this drug kill patients? Is there any evidence that it’s dangerous? No one can tell.

This is a bizarre situation to arise in medicine, a discipline where everything is supposed to be based on evidence and where everyday practice is bound up in medico-legal anxiety. In one of the most regulated corners of human conduct, we’ve taken our eyes off the ball and allowed the evidence driving practice to be polluted and distorted. It seems unimaginable.

Excerpted from “Bad Pharma: How Drug Companies Mislead Doctors and Harm Patients” by Ben Goldacre.












Have you tried Lorene’s Balinese massage yet?


How you handle your money, believe it or not, can be used as a spiritual practice.  You can amplify your relationship with the flow of abundance as you participate with more awareness in earning, spending and giving.

Be part of the flow.  You activate the law of receiving by giving.  Appreciate value and put your resources toward that which is in greatest harmony with the life you want to create.  Be grateful for what you have!  When you pay your bills be sure to remember and appreciate having had that phone work all month, having the water flow freely.

Notice when you feel restricted around money and take a deep breath, and offer gratitude instead.  This is a powerful re-patterning that will invite more prosperity into your life.

Stay in the Flow!

From Mary Manin Morrissey

Please refer to the Cancer Blog for updates that includes all archives, questions and comments.

More information is also available on many taped radio interviews with Lorene Benoit, explaining WHY Paw Paw works!  a

Can Cancer Be Prevented?


Written by Lorene Benoit, author, consultant and natural health teacher for more than 30 years, the book presents a comprehensive natural program for understanding cancer, preventing cancer and working with cancer. This book began in April, 2005, when Benoit wrote the script, “A Complementary Approach to Cancer“, for a series of cross Canada Health Classes to teach people about Paw Paw, a herb used as part of a natural program for cancer.

The end result is a 284 page book offering a program that works, is affordable, and can be combined with medical treatments.

Lorene Benoit’s expertise offers a wealth of information about a complete Paw Paw program that has helped many with cancer. The book includes background, research, and all instructions for the paw paw program as a natural solution for cancer. Also included are diet and cancer, protein, pH, additional supportive supplementation, treatment options, lifestyle suggestions, case studies, success stories, and more.

The Paw Paw Program book answers a lot of the questions that have been asked by those following the program the last 5 years! It is professionally done, with charts and illustrations, making it easy to understand.

Lorene Benoit is a Natural Health Consultant and Educator, who founded Benoit & Associates Health Education Services in 1989. Her qualifications are Bachelor of Education in Biology and Physical Education, Masters of Holistic Healing, Certified Herbal Consultant, Iridologist, Contact Reflex Analyst, plus certifications for Live Blood Analysis, Western and Chinese herbs, Nutrition, Massage and Energy Healing.

She has taught throughout North America, from 5 to 500 people, both practitioners and clients, from workshops to her annual 4 day Herbal Intensive every summer on her herbal acreage on Vancouver Island. She was the Canadian Instructor for Tree of Light Institute US, for both Masters of Holistic Health and Certified Herbal Consultant programs for 10 years in Canada.

She has authored for health publications since mid 1980’s, plus written booklets on Muscle Testing, Vaccinations and Chinese Herbs. Benoit has been featured and interviewed on radio and TV programs on a variety of topics.

Her passion is teaching health in everyday language! This book was written to offer help to anyone dealing with cancer, as well as to help understand causes and incorporate preventative lifestyle changes. For practitioners, this book is a must to save time and help clients understand what causes cancer and how to work with natural solutions for cancer.

Dr. Jerry McLaughlin, who is the renown expert for Paw Paw Research says this about Benoit’s book;

” This book offers an excellent explanation of a safe, effective and affordable program for cancer that can be a Godsend for those dealing with this or other chronic conditions.”
