The Alternative Doctor’s 3 Pillars for Beating Cancer


The Alternative Doctor’s 3 Pillars for Beating Cancer

The Survival Triangle
I call my three pillars to beat cancer the “survival triangle.” If you’re serious about keeping (or getting) cancer out of your life, follow these steps to better health. They are simple, proven fighters that will make you a winner against this devastating disease. Taking a single one and making it part of your life will make a huge difference in your overall health.

If you utilize all three, it will change your life.
Now, before anything, let me say that traditional cancer treatment (surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation) does its part to help patients survive cancer.

Unfortunately, they don’t address the root cause of cancer. They treat the tumors that result. They kill the cancer cells and a lot of healthy cells along the way. Conventional cancer modalities treat the disease…not the patient.
Even oncologists who understand that toxins and inflammation are the underlying cause of millions of deaths globally from cancer every year, they aren’t addressing prevention techniques that will keep these patients from coming back with another cancer in a year or five years.

Addressing the “Alternative Medicine Skeptics”
If you don’t address the cause – the problems that start the cancer ball rolling – then you haven’t really beaten it…you’ve only managed to knock it unconscious for a while.
You have to take control of your health. That requires you to understand how your body works and what it needs to do the best job for you that it can.
If you don’t “believe” in alternative therapies, then you’re doing yourself a great disservice. Even if you fully expect traditional treatment to “cure you,” alternative methods can help you with the side effects you’re going to experience, keep your body stronger, and guard you against another episode of cancer in your future.
Alternative choices can improve your quality of life and help you endure treatments such as radiation that leave the body (and immune system) ravaged and weak. The “war” against cancer leaves as much destruction as a real war. Much like the natural landscape and infrastructure is left annihilated in battle – so is your body after traditional treatment.

Pillar #1 – DIET
Cancer represents the biggest fight of your entire life.  You need to be as fit and healthy as you can be to meet the challenge. In order to handle the demands of exercise, to terminate infection and bacteria, to fight the effects of age, your body is going to need the right fuel.
That is why diet is the first pillar of beating the root causes of cancer.
Anyone (medical professional or otherwise) who tells you that diet does not affect your health or ability to fight disease is a liar. Period.

Diet is everything. Even the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that around 40% of cancers are caused by diet (I think the numbers are actually much higher). What you choose to put in your mouth may mean the difference between life and death.
That isn’t dramatic, that is fact.

Eating a diet filled with junk food, dyes, preservatives, excess sugar, caffeine, or other “empty” calories cannot and will not feed your body. If your body doesn’t get the right vitamins and minerals – it stops running just like a car without gas.
There are many anti-cancer meal plans that I discuss in my books and on but there is no universal diet plan that will suit every person equally. Instead, dietary requirements must be assessed based on each individual’s specific needs. Remove any foods (no matter how much you love them) that cause stress to your immune system.

My personal suggestion is to fill your diet with fresh, organic foods (where possible), salads, smoothies, and brightly colored produce. Remember that dairy, soy, grains, and even certain produce can be unknown stressors. Avoid white sugar, white flour, white rice, processed foods, dairy, and soy.

Pillar #2 – Emotional Cleansing

Negative emotion as a root cause of cancer is reality. There is far too much science to back this stance up so keep an open mind.

Stanford psychiatrist, Dr. David Spiegel, was a skeptic when he began his study on the influence of negativity on breast cancer patients. He was shocked to discover that at the ten-year survival checkup, those women who included therapy in their lives survived twice as long as those who did not.
You read that right…there was a 50% better survival rate by purging negative emotion.
Another Yale research study found that cancer spread faster in women who had “repressed personalities.” They defined the word “repressed” as having intense feelings of hopelessness and not having the ability to express anger, fear, or other negative emotions.
In other words, they bottled it all up inside and it made them sicker, faster.

Stress is known in the traditional and alternative communities as a major cause of inflammation. It is one thing everyone agrees on (though traditional medicine’s answer is another prescription). Inflammation has been discovered at the base of all known diseases.
In other words, stress will kill you through cancer or heart attack or autoimmune disease…if you allow it to control your life. Balanced emotions equal a balanced physiological system.

There are countless stressors in our modern world and many of them are foods, people or situations, and products we allow into our lives. We’ve talked about the first two. Let’s discuss the contamination most people never consider.

Personal pollution is as dire as environmental pollution and we are surrounded by both at every turn. Pollutants are in our soil, water, and air and that means they are in our food supply. Those are harder to control (even organic foods are grown on the same planet we’ve corrupted with countless toxins).
You can control what you put on your body, what you put in your body, and how you maintain the environments you live in most (your home and work space).

If you haven’t heard about the chemical soup found in cosmetics, household goods, and everyday cleansers, I urge you to do some research on it right now. From heavy metals and arsenic to formaldehyde and parabens…products you buy every day at your local market are filled with endocrine disruptors, estrogen mimics, and outright poison to the cells in your body.
One person I urge you to read is Dr. Sam Epstein, a professor of Occupational Health and Environmental Medicine at the University of Illinois School of Public Health.

In his book, The Politics of Cancer, he states, “The NCI (National Cancer Institute) promised annual cancer mortality rates would be halved by the year 2000. The establishment now belatedly admits that cancer rates are increasing sharply. It discounts substantial evidence…the wide range of chemical and radioactive carcinogens permeating the environment, air, water, food, and the workplace. The establishment ignores, let alone investigates, carcinogenic contaminants in dietary fat, particularly pesticides, PCBs, and estrogen (with extensive and unregulated use as growth promoting animals food additives).”

Big Business (food manufacturers, chemical producers, and even personal care manufacturers), and Big Pharma (drugs, drugs, drugs) don’t care about your health. They don’t care about “curing” anything at all because then…how would they make money?
Every time you use cosmetics, shampoos, conditioners, antiperspirants, paints, household cleaning agents, laundry detergent, or any host of other products…you are playing Russian Roulette with your health.

These deadly toxins don’t just pass through your system. No, that would be bad but your (healthy) immune system would be able to control most of the fallout. What makes many of these chemicals so dangerous is that they accumulate in your body, gradually building up (bit by bit) to levels that are toxic according to any agency.

The True Causes of Cancer
There are many things stressing your body each and every day. Junk nutrition, high levels of stress, and chemical contamination push these stressors past the brink of what your body can handle.
Use the three pillars for beating cancer – the survival triangle – to beat the root causes of cancer.

I wrote a book not only about the bad word CANCER, but something more dear to all; LIFE.  The book contains four years of research and knowledge, however; I wanted it to be about choice, inspiration and hope.


The reason this means so much is that I told my personal thoughts and feelings throughout four years of healing myself naturally with Functional Medicine.  My family was also part of this book and without them it would not be what it is. 


My daughter wrote a piece in it that expresses the feelings and thoughts of a child whose parent is diagnosed with an illness.  It’s real and part of LIFE.  I wanted my daughter to be part of this adventure for I wanted her to share this along with my husband Dan the rainbow that has the pot of gold at the end.  By doing this she drew and designed the cover of the book.  This is the first thing that someone looks at and I knew that her feelings would come out onto paper.  We are a unit and I could have not made it without her strength.  Check out her web site at other designs and work that shows her thoughts and love for art  I am so proud of my girl.


Another reason why the book is special, my husband and mother also write verses.  I wanted people to see that this disease affects not just the person, but the whole family.


Last but not least, I was able to express some of my thoughts into poems.  I wanted to be able to reach people by art through poetry.  I also added many you tube sites of my adventures visiting my daughter and friends along with my husband going through the same treatment program.


So this is not something that I just put together regarding CANCER, but also feelings and emotions of my LIFE managing cancer.  I placed my heart and soul in this project hoping everyone can get something out of it.

Enjoy life and remember Knowledge is power.

75% of physicians in the world refuse chemotherapy for themselves

Doctors used to think that if they drained a sick person’s blood it would purge the “evil” infection or disease right out of the body, but all that did was make the ill person much weaker, unable to fight off whatever was invading their body, and the patient was then highly likely to lose the battle for life, and in less time.

Research using polls and questionnaires continue to show that 3 of every 4 doctors and scientists would refuse chemotherapy for themselves due to its devastating effects on the entire body and the immune system, and because of its extremely low success rate. On top of that, only 2 to 4% of all cancers even respond to chemotherapy or prove to be “life extending,” yet it is prescribed across the board for just about every kind of cancer.

Polls were taken by accomplished scientists at the McGill Cancer Center from 118 doctors who are all experts on cancer. They asked the doctors to imagine they had cancer and to choose from six different “experimental” therapies. These doctors not only denied chemo choices, but they said they wouldn’t allow their family members to go through the process either! What does that say about their true opinion of this archaic method?

These surveys are having a profound effect on the general public opinion of chemo treatments in most of Western society, especially the United States, which uses more than any nation in the world. This lack of trust by doctors is spilling over to patients, and the move towards natural remedies is increasing, much the way it did in the early 1900’s, before the dawn of corrupt medicine, pharmaceuticals, and radiation.

An elevated level of toxicity is actually the last thing any human being needs when fighting infection, disease, or pneumonia.

Auto-immune disorders are mainly caused when humans ingest chemicals from food, drinking water, vaccines contaminated with chemicals, artificial sweeteners and environmental pollution. Chemotherapy, like the popular Cis-platinum, fills the body with horrific toxins, and doctors and scientists know it, but because the FDA outlaws doctors from suggesting or prescribing vitamins, supplements, herbs and super-foods, chemical therapy is still “recommended.”

The way to beat cancer is to detoxify your body and build up your host immune system, not break it down further by dousing one tumor or one organ with chemicals that pollute the entire system. Put it this way, if an elderly person had an injured toe and it needed a cold compress to help heal it, would you submerge the senior in a freezing pool of water repeatedly for days, and then wait for the toe to heal? Doctors know how absurd the ideology of chemotherapy really is, but when a society bases the bulk of its therapy on chronic care management, the doctors are silently coerced into suggesting it or finding another profession.

Chemotherapy shows very little success with common solid tumors that occur in the colon, lung and breasts, as documented over the past decade, yet somehow doctors still push “chemo” to attempt to stave off tumors and malignant growths in these areas of the body.

Could it be some extreme coincidence that although 75% of doctors would refuse chemotherapy for themselves and their family members, they still prescribe it for 75% of their patients? The costly price of chemo and the likelihood of Big Pharma “kickbacks” is screaming the answer “no.”

At best, chemotherapy should be considered alternative treatment, but for over 70 years Allopathic medicine has warped the public perception of true medicine, so if you happen to get cancer and your doctor tells you what to do, you may want to ask him/her if they would do the same thing for themselves and their family members.

Top Ten Cancer Causing Foods to Avoid

Top Ten Cancer Causing Foods to Avoid 1. Genetically Modified Foods (GMOs): The rapidly growing industry of genetically modified crops are infiltrating our food supply at an alarming rate. More than 90% of our corn and soy are now genetically modified. This fairly new practice is the source of many debates. Experts agree that adequate testing was not done before GMO foods were added to the ingredient listing of thousands of products. Look for GMO-free labels whenever possible. See our exclusive report on the dangers of GMO foods. 2. Microwave Popcorn: From the chemical-lined bag to the actual contents, microwave popcorn is at the center of lung cancer debates around the world. Not only are the kernels and oil likely GMO (which the manufacturer does not have to disclose), but the fumes released contain diacetyl, which is toxic to humans. 3. Canned Goods: Most cans are lined with a product called bisphenol-A (BPA), which has been shown to genetically alter the brain cells of rats. Many plastic goods, thermal paper, water lines, and many dental composites also contain BPA. 4. Grilled Red Meat: While grilling tastes delicious, scientists have discovered that preparing meats in this way – especially processed meats like hot dogs – releases a carcinogen called heterocyclic aromatic amines. When you grill red meat to the point of well-done, it changes the chemical and molecular structure of the meat. 5. Refined Sugar: The biggest threat is high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) but even brown sugar is highly refined white sugar with some of the removed molasses added back in for flavor and color. They are the source of major insulin spikes and feed the growth of cancer cells. Since the majority of the sugar supply in the U.S. is made using genetically modified (GMO) sugar beets, a healthier option is organic honey, coconut sugar, or maple sugar. 6. Salted, Pickled, and Smoked Foods: These products typically contain preservatives, such as nitrates, which are intended to prolong shelf life. The additives used in processed foods can accumulate in your body over time. Eventually, such toxins cause damage at the cellular level and lead to diseases like cancer. When smoked foods are cooked at high temperatures, the nitrates are converted to the much more dangerous nitrites. 7. Soda and Carbonated Beverages: Sodas have been at the center of the health debate for two decades. Filled with high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS), dyes, and a host of other chemicals, they are very bad for your health. They provide zero nutritional value and can rob your body of the nutrients you get from other foods. Adding “diet” to the label means you’re also consuming aspartame – and that is no better than rat poison. 8. White Flour: When flour is refined, all nutritional value is removed and then it is bleached with chlorine gas to make it more appealing to consumers. The glycemic index for white flour is very high – meaning it spikes your insulin levels without providing nutritional fuel. Carbohydrates are converted to sugars by your body, so excessive products that contain white flour can lead to increased insulin resistance. 9. Farmed Fish: Commercial fish farming involves raising an incredible number of fish – such as salmon – in a crowded environment. 60% of the salmon consumed come from a farming operation where they are treated with antibiotics, pesticides, and other carcinogenic chemicals. They also do not contain as much omega-3 as wild salmon. 10. Hydrogenated Oils: Vegetable oils are chemically extracted from their source, then they are chemically treated, and then more chemicals are added to change the smell and taste. They are packed with unhealthy omega-6 fats and have been proven to alter the structure of our cell membranes. Any food that is listed as “diet,” “light,” or “fat-free” should be avoided. In order to remove fat or natural calories, they are replaced with chemicals that are dangerous to your body. Instead of eating food that manufacturers profess is “good for you” – add organic fruits and vegetables, grain-fed meats, and organic dairy products. - See more at:

Top 6 Foods against Sore Throat

Top 6 Foods against Sore Throat
  1. Banana is soft and gently for your throat fruit that you can easily swallow, especially if you have a sore throat. It has a low glycemic index and it is high in Vitamin B5, potassium and vitamin C.
  2. Oatmeal is rich in protein and soluble fiber. It reduces the cholesterol and keeps you full for a longer period. Hot oatmeal is a good choice for the treatment of sore throat. You can add banana and honey (or malt and maple syrup) to get a calming effect and better taste. Another benefit of oatmeal is low glycemic index, making it an ideal meal before your fitness training.
  3. Sage has excellent medicinal properties. It contains enzymes, flavonoids and phenolic acids. You can prepare it as a tea.
  4. Whole Wheat Pasta is an excellent remedy for a sore throat, especially if it is hot and made ​​with low-oil sauce. It is rich in fiber, zinc, iron, and vitamin B1, B2, B3 and E.
  5. Boiled or Steamed Carrots are also great healing food. Carrots are full of nutrients, such as fiber, potassium, Vitamin K, Vitamin C and Vitamin A. On the other hand, eating raw carrots  can worsen your sore throat.
  6. Honey Tea will help relieve the pain in the throat and chest. You will feel the improvement just by inhaling the steam from this tea. VEGAN’s, Maple Syrup and malt syrup mixture works in the same way that honey does. It lubricates the throat, allows the throat to heal itself and keeps talking and eating from being painful.

Here’s a List of States With the Most Toxic Tap Water


States With the Most Toxic Tap Water:
1. California
2. Wisconsin
3. North Carolina
4. Florida
5. Texas
6. New York
7. Nevada
8. Pennsylvania
9. Ohio
10. New Mexico

In North Carolina, 6.1 million citizens were exposed to 59 contaminants that exceeded the EPA’s limits. Nitrate, which can have a negative impact on kidneys, blood, the heart and the reproductive systems, was the most common contaminant.
The suspected carcinogen enters water through fertilizer runoff, leaching septic tanks and erosion of natural deposits.
Bromodichloromethane showed up in amounts that exceeded health limits in 373 communities, exposing 5 million people to potentially dangerous amounts of the toxic compound.
Are You Drinking Contaminated Tap Water?
Depending upon which contaminants that you are trying to remove and your budget, the alternatives vary greatly. To just remove chlorine is probably not sufficient, since many excreted and flushed medications are in city water. Apparently, they do not remove medication from city water.
Distillation is the most effective, but not really home use friendly.
Reverse osmosis probably does about the same job, and has a lot of filter issues and cost, maintenance and installation.
Others report no filtration system will remove the BPA and that water is a minor source of BPA compared to other contaminants in our food supply with BPA.
What Are Phthalates
Researchers estimated that more than 75% of the U.S. population is exposed to phthalates. Starting as early as the 1950s, scientists have published research findings in peer-reviewed academic and science journals on human and animal exposure to phthalates and their wide variety of health problems, as follows:
Infertility (especially among men)
Cancers (e.g., liver, breast, prostate, testicular, colon)
Autoimmune diseases (e.g., lupus)
Fertility problems (e.g., low sperm count, poor mobility of sperm, DNA damage in sperm, lower testosterone level, and ovarian dysfunction)
Obesity, resistance to insulin, and diabetes in men
Smaller testes and smaller genitals on average among male babies exposed to phthalates in mothers’ wombs
“Feminization” of male fish, frogs, and other amphibians living in phthalates-contaminated
rivers in the wild
Phthalates are a class of synthetic chemical compounds used widely as softeners in many plastic products (or commonly called as “plasticizers” in plastics) and other consumer products.
For your health and your family’s health, it is best to avoid all plastic containers—both
for water and food—labeled #3 PVC and all containers containing phthalates.
It is best to use glass or stainless-steel food and water bottles and containers when bottling your own filtered water at home. It is difficult to avoid phthalates in this world even if you want to, so do not voluntarily ingest more phthalates by using phthalate-containing water bottles and food containers.
