Some Breast Cancer Patients Benefit from Tart Cherry That Reduced Joint Pain, and Sore Muscles

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2019

A new study reported in Science Daily concluded that tart cherry decreases joint pain and sore muscles in some breast cancer patients by reducing the musculoskeletal effects of aramatrase inhibitors. These inhibitors are a standard treatment for hormone receptive-positive breast cancer in postmenopausal women and help prevent recurrence by inhibiyting the action of amomatasew that is an enzymew that converts androgens to estrogens. Almopst half of women who use this treatment have joint and muscle pain that can be debilitating and may cause patients to stop treatment.

In the random, double-bind study women were plaqced in a group that received 1 ounce of tart cherry concentrate in 8 ounces of water dailyfor 6 weeks with a group who received a placebo. All had stage 1,2,3 non-metastatic breast cancer.  The study continued through May 2016 to August 2018 and 60 patients were enrolled.  Patients documented their pain intensity at the start of the study, weekly and at the end of the study. Patients who completed the study reported a 34.7% mean decrease in pain compared to 1.4% in the placebo group.  Recearchers say the flavonoids and anthocyanins in the tart cherry have an anti-inflammatory properties that may play a role in reducing the side effects observed. There was a statistical significant difference in the pain levels experienced by patients in the group that received the tart cherry.

Vitam D Increase Longevity of Cancer Patients

Wednesday, June 12th, 2019

New research presented at the American Society of Clinical Oncology annual meeting earlier this month concluded that Vitamin D. if taken for at  least 3 years could extend cancer patients lives. Although the research showed vitamin D could extend the lives of cancer patients it did not show it could prevent cancer.  Researchers looked at data from cancer prevention from more than 79,000 patients in multiple studies randomlly comparing the use of vitamin D to a placebo over 3 years and relating this to cancer incidence and mortality.

Differences in mortality data for the two groups was statistically significant and showed the value of vitamin D for cancer patients.  Researchers stated that although the results are promising they do not identify the dosage and levels in the blood needed to obtain positive And they reaffrirmed that results showed that at least 3 years of taking vitamin D were necessare to show results. results.

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 Linda Isaacs Continues the Cancer Treatments She Used with Dr Nicholas Gonzalez.

Sunday, August 26th, 2018

Dr Linda Isaacs

Linda L. Isaacs, M.D., received her Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Kentucky, graduating with High Distinction with a major in biochemistry. She was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. She subsequently received her medical degree from Vanderbilt University School of Medicine in 1985. She completed a residency in Internal Medicine at the Department of Veteran’s Affairs Medical Center at New York University Medical School. She is certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine, most recently completing recertification in 2011.

Dr. Isaacs worked with her colleague Nicholas J. Gonzalez, M.D., for more than twenty years, using a nutritional approach for treating patients diagnosed with cancer and other serious degenerative illnesses. After his untimely death in July 2015, she has continued with the work they shared. The treatment involves diet, which varies from patient to patient and can range from almost exclusively vegetarian to one that is heavy in animal protein and fat; individualized nutritional supplement protocols, which include large doses of pancreatic enzymes; and procedures such as coffee enemas that help the body rid itself of metabolic wastes.

In 1999, Dr. Isaacs and Dr. Gonzalez completed a research study in patients diagnosed with pancreatic cancer: the results were published in the peer-reviewed journal Nutrition and Cancer, showing survival well beyond what is described in the medical literature. They also published a series of case reports in the peer-reviewed journal Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine, and co-authored the book The Trophoblast and the Origins of Cancer. Dr. Isaacs wrote the article “Deciding to Pursue an Alternative Cancer Therapy” to help prospective patients sort through their options; it is available on her website at https://www.drlindai.com/pursuing_alt_ther.html.

Visit her website at DrLindaI.com to learn more about her treatment and review the application process to become a patient.
