Sunday, June 16th, 2019

Miriam Kalamian is a nutrition consultant, educator, author, and speaker with a passion for ketogenic therapies. She earned her Master’s in Education from Smith College and her Master’s in Human Nutrition from Eastern Michigan University. She’s board certified in nutrition by the Board for Certification of Nutrition Specialists (CNS). Miriam was inspired by the groundbreaking work of Thomas Seyfried, who introduced her to the ketogenic diet for cancer a few years into her young son’s treatment for a devastating brain tumor. Now, in her book Keto for Cancer, Miriam demystifies the diet for those who want to apply this nutritional strategy as part of a metabolic approach to cancer.

Ken Goubeaux and Carl O Helvie Discuss Cancer.

Sunday, May 5th, 2019

For the show this week, a Facebook friend, Ken Goubeaux,  and I will talk about what we have learned since having Facebook pages and also having cancer either personally (me) or in our families (both of us) and what is needed to successfully overcome cancer. Ken sent the following as background.

“My story started back in October 1991 when my father was first diagnosed with bladder cancer and had it scoped and they took out a tumor which they told him at the time they had to leave just a stem, because they didn’t want to cut into the bladder wall for obvious reason. After this surgery they gave him radium treatments which always made him feel bloated. So long story short he never really felt it necessary to change his life style or diet. But was fortunate to survive cancer two more time and the third being a tumor up by the breast bone which they decided to fry it with radiation. Then it was only a year later it came back. I remember to this day the day being February 24 2005 My mom and sister took him to Ohio State and found out it was terminal. They told him a year it was Leiomyosarcoma; rare type only 4 in a million get this type. So it was nearly the end of the dx when I went to the Shrine in Carey Ohio. When I myself was going through severe depression and went there to pray for a peace of mind. Because it seemed about every time I was about dig my self out of the dark hole I fell deeper back into it. So on the way from mass that day I was handed a vision for my blog. Which I thought how brilliant but at the time I didn’t know how to type let alone computers or the internet but it didn’t stop me. And boy after that date I learned that when the student is ready the teachers would appear. From Mant Prowg in Kettering at half price books. That Chinamen owning a business that came here and went through his own form of culture shock because of the American Diet provided me the basis for Solitarius.org.” In addition to his Facebook page Solitarius.org,  Ken also manages Cannabis Saves People and Rosa’s Corner. He is from Ohio and graduated from Northwestern College in Lima. More information is available at:  www.facebook.com/ken.goubeaux

 

Dr Carl O. Helvie, R.N. received a B.S. (NYU), M.S. (U of California), M.P.H. and Dr.P.H. (Johns Hopkins U). Advanced degrees are in public health and wellness. He has over 60 years experience as a nurse practitioner, educator, author and researcher and received national recognitions including the Distinguished Career Award from the American Public Health Association and listings in Wikipedia.  He is author of 10 books, contributor to 3 others, has over 100 peer reviewed articles and presented research papers around the United States and Europe. While in academia he developed a theory of nursing and health that is used internationally and received national funding for and administered a health care program for homeless and low income individuals and families. He has been interviewed on over 200 radio and television shows over the past 6 years.  At age 86 he currently hosts the Holistic Health Show on BBS Radio and is President/CEO of the Carl O Helvie Holistic Cancer Foundation. Given 6 months to live with a diagnosis of lung cancer 44 years ago he overcome it using holistic natural interventions (no chemotherapy, radiation or surgery).

Dr Laszlo Boros Speaks on Deuterium Depleted Water and Cancer

Sunday, February 3rd, 2019

Dr. Laszlo Boros is currently a Professor of Pediatrics at UCLA and the Co-Director of the Stable Isotope Research Laboratory at the Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute (LABIOMED) at the Harbor-UCLA Medical Center with a primary focus on studying cancer cell metabolism with the use of a specifically designed 13C-glucose tracer and mass spectroscopy. Born and educated in Hungary, Dr. Boros’ medical background includes three years of gastroenterology and pancreatology, focusing on chronic pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer. He spent two years as a visiting scholar in Essen, Germany, studying various animal models of chronic pancreatitis. In 1990, he moved to Columbus, Ohio, where he joined the history-making laboratory of Drs. Zollinger and Ellison, who described hormonal regulatory mechanisms involved in pancreatic cancer growth with a primary emphasis on diagnostics and treatment.

In 1995 he became the lead investigator to clinically apply stable isotope technologies to study diabetes and cancer growth in vitro and in animal models at UCLA. He is an expert in using metabolic profiling and mitochondrial nanomechanics to further understanding of particularly aggressive cancers. Dr. Boros also participates in research projects targeting population metabolic disorders, such as diabetes and obesity, and is involved in discovering the underlying mechanisms of rare metabolic disorders arising from genetic mutations affecting vitamin transport.  Dr. Boros is an internationally proclaimed expert of metabolic water biochemistry as well as deuterium mediated kinetic isotopic effects in health and disease.

Dr. Boros is the recipient of the C. Williams Hall Outstanding Publication Award from the Academy of Surgical Research of the USA (1997), the Richard E. Weitzman Memorial Research Award from the University of California (2001), the Excellence in Clinical Research Award from the General Clinical Research Center at the Harbor-UCLA Medical Center (2004), Public Health Impact Investigator Award of the United States Food and Drug Administration (2011) and received a Best Publication Award from the Metabolomics Society and Springer Nature publisher (2014).

Dr. Boros serves as Chief Scientist at the Center for Deuterium Depletion, the world’s first organization to use deuterium and tracer technologies in a research clinic setting to describe and follow the health status of patients with metabolic disorders such as cancer, diabetes, and autoimmune disorders.
