To Alkalize or Not to Alkalize-That is the Question

Friday, August 28th, 2009


In her book Outsmart Your Cancer: Alternative Non-Toxic Treatments that Work, Tanya Harter Pierce, this week’s guest, discusses whether or not to alkalize if you have cancer. She says this is an important question and in almost all cases the answer is yes. The rational for this is that most alternative practitioners agree that cancer cells thrive in an acidic body and in general, cancer patients are much more acidic than non-cancerous patients.

The primary way to maintain a normal pH level in your body is with the use of minerals from the diet. In an earlier blog I talked about the alkaline diet recommended by Edgar Cayce and how this was similar to the anti-inflammatory diet discussed by Dr Andrew Weil. It will be remembered that it is not the acidity of the foods that determines their effect in the body but how they promote alkalinity or acidity. For example, citrus fruit such as limes are acidic outside the body but promote alkalinity when broken down and processed within the body. In general, minerals such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron and others are very alkalizing to the body and many fruit and vegetables tend to be high in these alkalizing minerals. Thus, they are often recommended as a mainstay of the diet of a cancer patient. In an earlier blog when I talked about my cancer regime 33 years ago when I was given 6 months to live, my diet consisted of 75% raw fruits and vegetables and a limited amount of cooked vegetables but no sugar, meat, dairy, poultry and the other acid producing foods identified below from Tanya’s book.

Tanya discusses acid producing foods (meats, fish, poultry, eggs, milk, processed grains refined sugar, nuts and seeds, ice cream, chocolate and other similar foods) and alkaline producing foods (raw fruit and vegetables, sprouts, olive oil, goat cheese, stevia, molasses, maple sugar, green tea, miso and sauerkraut, herbs and similar foods). She continues to discuss optimum pH level and how to test for alkaline balance and how to alkaline, if needed. I suggest reading this or similar material on alkalizing because it is not only useful for individuals with cancer but also those with yeast infections and other bodily imbalances.

Take Action to Protect Vitamin B-6 as a Natural Food Supplement

Wednesday, August 26th, 2009

In our upcoming show this Saturday, Author, and Family and Marriage counselor Tanya Harter Pierce talks about past efforts of the drug industry to suppress successful natural non-toxic cancer treatments because they do not own them and would not profit from them. So the next best thing would be to suppress them and force the public to the drugs they own. She also talks about the process used to suppress these natural non-toxic treatments and how difficult this concept is for the drug inmdustry, FDA, American public to understand because they believe something that will help others would be on the market and if it isn’t then it must not be safe or effective.

The drug industry has also been known to work with the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) of the Federal Government to try to take natural food supplements that have proven successful and that they can make money from and make them drugs. This deprives the American public of these health substances or at the least costs them more money in order to put money in the pockets of the drug industry.

One current example is Vitamin B-6 which has been demonstrated by research to be effective and safe against the following conditions: skin wrinkling; atherosclerosis, chronic inflammation, cataract formation, kidney failure, diabetes complications, and Alzheimers disease among others. Pyridoxamine the natural form of Vitamin B-6 is the safest form of Vitamin B-6 and is found naturally in small amounts in foods such as fish, chicken, walnuts, carrots, eggs, and others. Now the FDA seems to have caved in to the Drug Industry by accepting their petitioned to investigate this natural food and food supplement and consider making it a new drug. Without pressure from the public this may become a drug and cost the public far more than it does currently. It may also be restricted to certain uses and require a prescription. .Thus, from what I read it seems to this author that instead of protecting the public health and welfare the FDA is protecting the profits of the Drug Industry. There is something you can do. Go to for a full discussion of the actions taken to date and what you can do to protect the interests of the public.

You may wonder why I am writing about this topic. However, if you look at my definition of Holistic Health on my website you will see that I define it as physical, mental, and spiritual health; relationships; the environment; and political action. Working with all of these concepts is necessary to protect your health. Political action is as important as other concepts identified because political groups are involved in most major decisions about health and health care and all of their decisions affect you. So I ask you to take action today and be involved.

Tanya Harter Pierce to be Interviewed by Dr Carl O Helvie on the Holistic Health Show

Sunday, August 23rd, 2009


My guest on the Holistic Health show on Saturday, August 29 is Tanya Harter Pierce who has a masters degree in clinical psychology and is currently on leave from her counseling practice as a Marriage, Family, and Child Counselor. Tanya never thought she would write a book about cancer but when a family member was diagnosed with cancer that was considered “incurable” by conventional medicine she suddenly began searching alternative options. Over the years she had cured other chronic conditions with alternative holistic treatments so she had an open mind about these interventions. From her studies she was stunned to find so many successful approaches to treating cancer non-toxically that often had better success rates than current conventional treatments. Because this information was not easily available or understandable she wrote Outsmart Your Cancer: Alternative Non-Toxic Treatments that Work . The second edition of this book has just been published and Tanya will focus on two areas of the book in the interview: Protocel, and the PSA and Hormone Blocking Drugs as they relate to Prostate Cancer.

Laetrile–Cancer Treatment used Sucessfully by Dr Carl O Helvie 33 years ago when he was given 6 months to live.

Wednesday, August 5th, 2009

picture-061Although Laetrile has been a very a successful, non- invasive and non-debilitating treatment for cancer for many years it has mainly been ban from the United States by the powerful drug companies and FDA. It is a simple and inexpensive treatment that is still available in a few areas of the United States and in Mexico.
In my case I used Laetrile when my doctor said I would be dead in 6 months. Consequently, with that prognosis I decided not to subject myself to chemotherapy and surgery that would lead to pain, expense, and debilitation in what the doctors said would be my remaining days. However, the treatment was successful and I am alive and healthy 33 years later.
Laetrile is also called vitamin B17 and is found in differing amounts in many foods such as lima beans, bean sprouts, berries, nuts such as cashew and macadamia, some seeds and grains. Apricot kernels are one of the best sources and 33 years ago these were readily available at Health Food Stores but today these have also primarily been eliminated from the United States.
The theory behind the use of Vitamin B17, Amygdalin or Laetrile is that it is a nutritional deficiency in Cancer patients and this theory was developed from his research by Dr Ernest T. Krebs, Sr a prominent physician and researcher. One discussion of this theory for the interested reader can be found in Outsmart Your Cancer: Alternative Non-Toxic Treatments That Work by Tanya Harter Pierce which was just published.
In my case as discussed on the Holistic Health Show last Saturday (and later on my website) I used a variety of physical, mental and spiritual interventions to supplement the Laetrile. Today there are additional interventions supplementing this intervention as discussed by Dr Eslinger. From a discussion with Tanya Harter Pierce who will be on this show in a few weeks it is possible that Laetrile is not as effective by itself as it was 33 years ago because of the depletion of nutrients in the soil and other changes in our environment. Or it may be that these other interventions better facilitate the utilization of the Laetrile. Regardless, laetrile continues to be a successful treatment for many types of cancer-listen to the interview with Dr Eslinger or read the chapter with case histories in Outsmart Your Cancer as two examples.

Tips on Tamoxifen in Breast Cancer Treatment

Wednesday, June 10th, 2009

Tamoxifen is one of the most common conventional treatments for breast cancer after surgery, radiation and chemotherapy. Some of the downsides of Tamoxifen are:
1)The cancer of about 20 to 30% of all breast cancer patients are not effected by Tamoxifen (an estrogen driven drug) because their cancers are not estrogen-driven.
2)In Estrogen-driven breast cancer, Tamoxifen may not be effective if the cancer has metastasized.
3).This drug may not permanently stop cancer cells from growing, but instead puts them temporarily into a deep sleep.
4).There are many side effects to this drug and some are life threatening. Research shows that the risk of a potentially fatal lung blood clot is tripled, and the risk of a stroke, blindness, and liver dysfunction are significantly increased. Less severe side effects include hot flashes, night seats, depression, nausea and vomiting.
5) It may cause aggressive endometrial cancer in women who are using it for breast cancer.

Results of short term studies on Tamoxifen in the United States are more encouraging than longer studies carried out in Europe. For additional information and research see Pierce, Tanya Harter (2004) Outsmarting Your Cancer, Stateline, Nevada: Thoughtworks Publishing Co.

Because of these concerns be sure to discuss the pros and cons and other concerns of Tamoxifen with your physician or health care worker if it is recommended. .
