Hello and thank you for accepting my e-mail. I have a dear male friend who has been fighting stage 4 breast cancer, then prostate cancer, now spinal (bone cancer) for the past ten years. Chemo and radiation does not help at this point and he is now just waiting for the cancer to attack a vital organ. I was told that the combination of humic and fulvic acid has helped people in the last stages of cancer and I'd like to know if there are any research results in this regard.
I personally visited Dr. Johanna Budwig in Germany in the year 2000. She passed away in 2003 at the age of 95 from a fall. Dr. Budwig was nominated 7 times for the Nobel Prize Dr. Budwig had over a 90% success rate with this protocol with all kinds of cancer patients over a 50 year period. Dr. Budwig worked with many patients who were terminally ill and some who had only hours to live. Dr. Budwig explained in her books that her healing plan works on improving the cells of the body. It doesn't matter where the cancer cells are located or what name if given to your cancer because the Budwig program gives cells what is needed in order for them to normalize in their functioning process. Her approach successfully treated the cause of all types of cancer, such as breast cancer, lung cancer, brain cancer, prostate cancer, Bone cancer, Carcinoma, bladder cancer, cervical cancer, esophageal cancer, stomach cancer, Leukemia, Hodgkin's disease, skin cancer, etc., and other common serious illnesses such as such as Arthritis, Asthma, Fibromyalgia, Diabetes, Blood Pressure, Multiple sclerosis, Heart Disease, Psoriasis, Eczema, Acne, and so on. She used a unique formula of cold pressed flaxseed oil and low fat cottage cheese with a little honey. Many people of heard of Dr. Budwig and may even have tried to follow her recipe. However unfortunately there is a lot of misinformation on her protocol on the Internet and if it is not followed exactly as she discovered and explained in her research the results could be very disappointing. As I obtained copies of all her research and have shared it with many others todate I would be happy to share her exact formula with any who request it on this forum. I often write about Dr. Budwigs formula for a local English Newspaper here in Southern Spain.

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound
Just 3 weeks ago my husband had HIFU (high intensity focused ultrasound) for prostate cancer. He is completely back to his old self, and never felt any pain or discomfort, never had the threat of maybe he would be incontinent or impotent. It was so easy!
HIFU, as it is called, is in clinical trials in the USA, but your urologist won't tell you about it, ours tried to discourage us, by telling us it wasn't approved by the FDA, but after much searching and studing--we knew it was the right decision! No cutting!
HIFU has been used in Europe for 16 years with a 94% cure rate. It would be 100% except if the cancer has spread outside the gland too far, then it cannot get it all, neither can surgery though, chemo is the choice then, but HIFU can be done first.
There are two HIFU machines, the Albatherm only has one size setting, so if your gland is larger than the setting it also may not get all the cancer. But the Sonablade500 can be adjusted to accomodate all sizes and if the gland moves during the procedure then so can the ultrasound beams. The Sonablade500 is made in the USA, while the Albatherm is made in Europe.
Because HIFU hasn't finished clinical trials in the USA it isn't FDA approved, so you must go outside the US to have it done. We went to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. We met Dr. S. Scionti ( www.internationalhifu.com ) and his team of nurses, anathiesologist and mechanics for the machine the night prior to the treatment at Xavier Hospital, which was spotlessly clean. The treatment took 2 hours, then we waited for husband to come out of his sleep, and we went back to the hotel, we had dinner out, and life was good! A supra-pubic catheter is installed, it is needed as the doctor uses it to clean him out prior to treatment, then there are tiny particles of prostate that must leave the body and the catheter makes this easier, or they could clog up the urethra. The catheter was a bummer, stayed in 12 days, but I understand you get the catheter with surgery too. Radiation causes other cancers, like bladder and renal.
HIFU is the answer! For complete info here is a website from the Prostate Cancer Research Institute, an independent research charity which explains it: http://www.prostate-cancer.org/education/novelthr/Chinn_TransrectalHIFU.html
Dr. S. Scionti is the most experienced in HIFU outside Europe, over 400 treatments. He lives in Hilton Head, South Carolina. 888-874-4384
It just makes me sick that the rest of the world has this easy treatment and we've never heard of it!
The Japanese use HIFU for bone, liver, kidney, pancreatic, prostate and breast cancer.
I have been inhaling 3% peroxide for over 13 years. And had a bout with Melanoma and Prostate cancer at the same time. At no time would I let anything like a salve be on my open Melanoma because that would take away the oxygen needed to heal from the outside. The peroxide I inhale would supply the oxygen on the inside. I increased the times that I inhale the peroxide into my mouth to 7 or 8 times a day. I used a nasal spray pump. With each inhale I would pump the pump about 10 times. This went on for four months. I now pump 5 times with each inhale and 7 inhales every day. My EKG says I am clean now. Go to www.landrights.com.scroll down to Hydrogen Peroxide. This is where I started out.
Bill was kind enough to let us copy the following amazing testimonial on hydrogen peroxide from his website:
"Hydrogen Peroxide is the most over looked chemical used by man. New uses of it are coming to light every day. Bad bugs be they, in your garden or your body, they cannot live in an oxygen rich environment.
At 69 years old my muscles were so tight that to get out of bed I would lay on my stomach and back out on to the floor, push down on the bed and stand up. I knew there was something to correct this bad situation. One morning while having coffee with a friend, I noticed he had brought a small stack of books with him. Being curious, I asked if I could look at the books. The one that stood out to me was "O2xygen Therapies". As I was scanning it, it became more interesting to me. I asked him if I could take it home. It was a week before returning the book. Being convinced Hydrogen Peroxide was what I was looking for, it was now going to into my system? The book gave three choices. Put 8 to 10 drops in an 8 oz cup and drink it, four times a day. Next was, put a pint of 35% in the bathtub and soak for 1 hour once a week. Or go to a doctor for intravenous infusion once a week. None of these had any appeal to me.
After a week or two I decided that the easiest, and most efficient way was to inhale the 3% peroxide into my mouth and on into my lungs. I just happened to have a "Nasal Spray Pump" (see sample picture below). I dumped the contents out, put in the 3% peroxide as it comes from the drugstore. Now, how many times do I pump? I settled for one pump per inhale, and 4 times a day. That went on for about a month. As I was laying down for a short rest, I noticed that I was breathing freely. No forced inhale or exhale. That was the first thing that I noticed while inhaling the peroxide. I then changed the time when to inhale the peroxide. Now I inhale 2 times in the morning and at night. While deep inhaling I pump the pump as many times as I can, usually 8 to 10 pumps each inhale. Another thing I noticed was, I sleep all night with my mouth closed. I used to have heart aches that were very uncomfortable, no more.
My wife and I have been inhaling peroxide for 9 years now and no colds, sore muscles, aches or pains. I take no medication or vitamins. I am less than two years to 80 years old. My lungs don't give out when I work in my garden or other things around the house. My house is 160 years old, so the work never stops. Peroxide keeps our oxygen blood count in the high 90's.
One of the first people that used the peroxide as I do was very interesting. He had a low self-esteem. I found out that he was on kidney dialysis. I discussed the peroxide several times with him. Finally one day I went to his house with a nasal spray pump. He opened it and poured out the contents and filled it back up with 3% peroxide. He sprayed it in to his mouth and into his lungs. I said you know how to do it, and I left. Three days later I called him to see if anything had happened. He said that he could breath easier. Four days later he called me, he was so excited all he could say was "It's working, It's working". I asked "What did it do?". He said he was waking up about an hour and a half before normal and that he was coughing up all the bad stuff that was in his lungs. He went back to bed and when he woke up, he said he had not felt that good in years. From that time on his spirit was always good and his voice was up beat.
A couple of people told me after four or five years of using the peroxide they stopped. I ask why and both said they did not get sick, and they don't think it was working. You can make that judgement. One friend of ours goes to the doctor for pacemaker check ups and the doctor tells him the peroxide will not help him but it will not do him any harm. He is using his second pacemaker. He has told me several times; if it were not for his inhaling the peroxide he would not be here today.

"CLUE TO SPREAD OF CANCER DISCOVERED"
"Critical clues explaining why cancerous cells spread, uncovered by a biologist at Queen's University, may have important implications for future treatments, according to a leading international journal. The findings of Dr. Charles Graham and a team of researchers at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, published in the current issue of the International Journal of cancer,suggest a link between oxygen levels in cancerous tumors and the spread of the disease to other parts of the body.
"Our research shows that the low levels of oxygen in malignant tumors enhance the ability of the tumor cells to spread," said Dr. Graham. "So by manipulating oxygen levels within the tumor, we may be able to control the spreading of cancer to different parts of the body".
"We took breast cancer cells and put them under conditions of low oxygen and we saw the cells became more aggressive and invasive..."
"To spread, tumor cells must be able to break down and invade surrounding tissue barriers. Dr. Graham's research shows that hypoxia, or low oxygen levels, in the tumor mass plays an important role in stimulating the processes required for metastasis."

I sent earthclinic a story about how garlic ridded me of cancer, this is under the heading Garlic Bulbs. 3/02/2007 under holistic cures for cancer.
Thank goodness for earthclinic!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now I would like to add a blog I just installed on Yahoo 360 on how others are finding garlic very helpful in staving off death by cancer by using garlic against it.
Entry for April 11, 2007: 14 years ago I had a serious bought with cancer, It was then I made the mistake that killed my cancer and saved my life. I have been trying to relay this information to you all since that time.
It is obvious to me that some people don't want to know anything different when what is told to them, they are having to much fun with this. And many are getting very rich!
I have some news about the ones who have found out about Garlic. Myself, I am sure I would not have made it, except for the garlic, and now several others have used garlic against cancer and are OK. I have an email to share from one person who expected to die from prostate cancer, His wife had already been killed by cancer, I want to share my latest email from him.
Then again, a lady friend of mine, K, is what I am going to call her, Another friend of hers whispered to me, K has been diagnosed with brain cancer, She only has 6 months to live. The first thing I did was get her phone no. and call to tell her about garlic. The results are, she started by eating a bulb of garlic a day, Then tapering off to a clove a day. Her cancer symptoms are gone, her pain is gone, and she has gone back to work, in a cancer killed state. this is a 2007 story, This whole episode started 6 weeks ago, a woman who was given 6 months to live has been given many more yrs to live because she used garlic to cure herself of brain cancer. I first heard of her cancer trouble in early 2007 it is now April 11,2007, now and she (K) is no longer worried about death from brain cancer.
The other story I have to share with you today has taken a little longer. But instead of trying to tell the story myself, I will cut and paste his latest email to me
This is S's latest email, he is from the UK,
"Hi Barry,wanted to up-date you after the latest hospital visit. Well great news to tell. In sept 06 when the trouble started my PSA count was 13.9 . Couldn't pass water & awful pain in the lower region. Found you & also started garlic.Took a Whole bulb on 2 separate days. Next reading in Jan 07 was 4.2 alarm bells ringing as still well above the acceptable 0--3 The next step was to have a biopsy to test for cancer cells, massively invasive & huge side effects. So we agreed to wait a while & have another test first. I did as you said & organised change in my life. Looked for calm in my mind. At this time i was on a drug to relax my muscles in that area to assist in passing water. Stopped the pills at the end of Jan 07 as hate pills. Started taking 1 garlic piece 3 times a week. You said increase it a little so i slowly built up to 3 pieces each day every day by end of March.Find it hard to swallow but try to imagine the good it is doing me. Next check was Feb 07 & was 3.9 still high but heading in the right direction.I still had an ache in the same place. Barry the inspiration i got from you & watching the numbers fall helped me so much. The latest check last week was 3.2 must get into the 0---3 group so still lots of work to do. Still have an ache which needs investigating, otherwise feel so much better. Will up-date you next check, positive thinking & all that so God willing it will be in the 0----3 Bless you my friend, S"
after using garlic to rid himself of prostate cancer.
This is good as I can do, If you can't believe, that garlic gets rid of cancer, then what can I say, I am only here to help because of what garlic did for me, You could at least try some garlic for a few days if you find you have contracted a cancer, I'll gurantee you may be rid of the cancer before you make for your doctors appointment.
Later Your Friend Boone Doggie sometimes called by my real name Barry.
This is my story and I'm sticking to it.
Recently I was told by a Holistic Health practitioner that an herbal formula called, Zyflamend was great for arthritis.I was surprised that within 2 days I felt a dramatic difference, my pain was taken from an 8 on the pain scale to about a 3! What a blessing! I use 2 zyflamend a day and when my pain is really bad I use 3-4. I also read online that Zyflamend has been studied by Columbia University on Prostate Cancer. I guess when you calm inflammation a lot of good things happen in the body.
EC: Reported Side Effects for Zyflamend include heart palpitations and dizziness. Please research before you buy!

For years I have tolerated growing onslaught of misinformation about Soy even though most studies relating to soy is quite positive. Today, I am angry and decided to post this myself.
If you don't believe me that soy is good for you, you don't have to! You can prove this for yourself! I will tell you how! The secret is here.
Do this: go to www.pubmed.org and do a search using the following keyword as follows:
- soy cancer
- soy dht
- soy testosterone
- soy estrogen
- soy osteoporosis
You will then learn the truth and you don't even have to believe me. I have done this for you already, and here are the summaries in case you don't have time! True information that I will post the research citations verbatim directly from research studies as follows:
1. DHT hormones (dihydrotestosterone) are the major cause of male hormone baldness. When lack of testosterone does not generate that much DHT stays on your head. The only known substance to reduce that is DHT.
2. Phytoestrogen has no effect on estrogen levels or hormone levels or even testosterone.
3. Soy helps with osteoporosis.
4. Soy reduces cancer and is used to treat cancer victims.
I will post the medical abstracts verbatim below.
Now the reason why such a relentless attack on soy is that there are ulterior motives from certain interest groups such as
1. Decreasing milk cows sales.
2. the use of genetically modified cows
3. the use of bovine growth hormones injected into cows which we drink and may cause obesity
4. The prevalence of mad cow's disease
5. The findings of a chemical toxins and toxic vaccines and might be found in cow's milk.
I am an Asian, here where I live we actually consume more soy milk then even fermented soy products. And it has kept us relatively low of osteoporosis.
Because of so much bombardment against soy, I will not put any thing here besides research abstract below. Ted"
Nope: soy does not effect testosterone:
Serum prostate-specific antigen but not testosterone levels decrease in a randomized soy intervention among men.
Maskarinec G, Morimoto Y, Hebshi S, Sharma S, Franke AA, Stanczyk FZ.
1Cancer Research Center of Hawaii, University of Hawaii, Honolulu, HI, USA.
Background: Low prostate cancer incidence and high soy intake in Asian countries suggest a possible protective effect of soy foods against prostate cancer. The goal of this pilot study was to evaluate the feasibility of a randomized, crossover soy trial among men and to investigate the effects of daily soy intake on serum prostate-specific antigen (PSA) and testosterone levels.Methods:We randomized 24 men to a high or a low soy diet for 3 months. After a 1-month washout period, the men crossed over to the other treatment. During the high soy diet, the men consumed two daily soy servings; during the low soy diet, they maintained their usual diet. During the entire study each man donated four blood samples and five overnight urine samples. Dietary compliance was assessed by soy calendars, 24-h dietary recalls, and urinary isoflavone excretion measured by high-pressure liquid chromatography with photodiode array detection. Blood samples were analyzed for serum testosterone and PSA by radioimmunoassay. When necessary, variables were log transformed. Two sample t-tests compared the two groups before each study period. Mixed models incorporating the repeated measurements were used to evaluate the effect of the soy diet on urinary isoflavone excretion and serum analytes.Results:Twenty-three men aged 58.7+/-7.2 years completed the study. The compliance with the study regimen was high according to self-reported soy food intake and urinary isoflavone excretion. No significant between-group and within-group differences were detected. During the high soy diet, dietary isoflavone intake and urinary isoflavone excretion increased significantly as compared to the low soy diet. A 14% decline in serum PSA levels (P=0.10), but no change in testosterone (P=0.70), was observed during the high soy diet in contrast to the low soy diet.Conclusion:The high adherence as shown by three measures of compliance in this pilot trial demonstrated the feasibility of an intervention based on soy foods among free-living men.European Journal of Clinical Nutrition advance online publication, 14 June 2006; doi:10.1038/sj.ejcn.1602473.

Asians have less osteporosis because of soy milk consumption! We consume more soy milk then the so called fermented things that Dr. Mercola claims!
Osteoporosis prevention education programme for women. Chan MF, Ko CY.
School of Nursing, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hung Hom, Hong Kong SAR, China. [email protected]
AIM: This paper reports an evaluation of a nurse-initiated education programme on four specific osteoporosis prevention behaviours which led to their adoption or to positive attitude changes.
BACKGROUND: In the past, osteoporosis was a serious health concern that most commonly affected women in Northern Europe and the United States of America, but was less commonly seen in Asian women. However, in Hong Kong, osteoporosis is currently among the top five conditions causing disability and prolonged hospital stay for older people. From an economic perspective, the most cost-effective approach is to focus on primary prevention via education, and nurses often have the responsibility of providing such educational programmes.
METHOD: A randomized controlled study was conducted from July 2004 to March 2005 with 76 women (38 cases and 38 controls) recruited in two private beauty clinics in Hong Kong. Pre-, post- and follow-up education data were compared regarding attitudes and adoption frequency before and after the education programme. RESULTS: The results showed statistically significant increases for each behaviour: consumption of soy foods (P < 0.001), milk (P < 0.001), more exercise (P = 0.01) and vitamin D/exposure to sunlight (P < 0.001) for the case group compared with the control group. Most participants either disagreed (n = 15, 39.0%) or strongly disagreed (n = 23, 61.0%) that there was not enough information provided in the education programme to motivate them to change. They rated the nurse's performance as either satisfactory or very satisfactory on presentation, ability to answer their questions and ability to describe each behaviour clearly.
CONCLUSION: Although positive results with a nurse-initiated education programme were demonstrated, future research examining the effects of education and occupation on these four adoption behaviours should focus on more diverse populations with respect to age, income or ethnicity. The findings suggest the value of creative approaches in future health education for the prevention of osteoporosis, and the need for a critical appraisal of current strategies and a re-evaluation of services and funding.

A rat study confirms improved bone when fed with soy
Soy affects trabecular microarchitecture and favorably alters select bone-specific gene expressions in a male rat model of osteoporosis.

We have recently reported that soy isoflavones particularly when provided in the context of soy protein are capable of preventing loss of bone mineral density due to orchidectomy in F344 rats. We hypothesize, that soy isoflavones also exert beneficial effects on bone microstructural properties, in part, by enhancing bone formation. Therefore, in the present study, we examined the dose-dependent effects of soy isoflavones on femoral bone microarchitectural properties and select bone-specific gene expressions in the same rat model. Seventy-two, 13-month old rats were either orchidectomized (ORX; 5 groups) or sham-operated (Sham; 1 group) and immediately placed on dietary treatments for 180 days. Four of the ORX groups were fed either casein- or soy protein-based diets each with one of two doses of isoflavones either 600 or 1200 mg/kg diet. Rats in the remaining ORX control and Sham groups were fed a control casein-based diet. Soy protein at the high isoflavone dose, and to a lesser extent with the lower dose, reduced the magnitude of the ORX-induced decreases in trabecular bone volume (BV/TV) and trabecular number (Th.N) and increase in trabecular separation (Tb.Sp) at the femoral neck site. These modulations of trabecular microstructural properties by isoflavones may be due to increased mRNA levels of alkaline phosphatase (ALP), collagen type I (COL), and osteocalcin (OC), which are associated with enhanced bone formation. These findings confirm our earlier observations that the modest bone protective effects of soy isoflavones are due to increased rate of bone formation.

Soy reduces dangerous DHT that causes you to go bald But yet had no effect on good hormones!
1: J Nutr. 2005 Mar;135(3):584-91.
Soy protein isolates of varying isoflavone content exert minor effects on serum reproductive hormones in healthy young men.
Dillingham BL, McVeigh BL, Lampe JW, Duncan AM.
Department of Human Biology and Nutritional Sciences, University of Guelph, Guelph, Ontario N1G 2W1, Canada.
Inverse associations between soy and prostate cancer and the contribution of hormones to prostate cancer prompted the current study to determine whether soy protein could alter serum hormones in men. Thirty-five men consumed milk protein isolate (MPI), low-isoflavone soy protein isolate (SPI) (low-iso SPI; 1.64 +/- 0.19 mg isoflavones/d), and high-iso SPI (61.7 +/- 7.35 mg isoflavones/d) for 57 d each in a randomized crossover design. Twenty-four-hour urine samples indicated that urinary isoflavones were significantly increased by the high-iso SPI relative to the low-iso SPI and MPI. Serum collected on d 1, 29, and 57 of each treatment revealed that dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and DHT/testosterone were significantly decreased by the low-iso SPI [9.4% (P = 0.036) and 9.0% (P = 0.004), respectively] and the high-iso SPI [15% (P = 0.047) and 14% (P = 0.013), respectively], compared with the MPI at d 57. Other significant effects included a decrease in testosterone by the low-iso SPI relative to the MPI (P = 0.023) and high-iso SPI (P = 0.020) at d 29; an increase in dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate by the low-iso SPI relative to the MPI at d 29 (P = 0.001) and relative to the MPI (P = 0.0003) and high-iso SPI (P = 0.005) at d 57; and increases in estradiol and estrone by the low-iso SPI relative to the MPI at d 57 (P = 0.010 and P = 0.005, respectively). In conclusion, soy protein, regardless of isoflavone content, decreased DHT and DHT/testosterone with minor effects on other hormones, providing evidence for some effects of soy protein on hormones. The relevance of the magnitude of these effects to future prostate cancer risk requires further investigation.

Soy is used in cancer treatment!! Cancer causing? You have been lied to by the Cow's milk consortium! Yes it protects against Prostate Cancer!
Effects of a diet rich in phytoestrogens on prostate-specific antigen and sex hormones in men diagnosed with prostate cancer.
Dalais FS, Meliala A, Wattanapenpaiboon N, Frydenberg M, Suter DA, Thomson WK, Wahlqvist ML.
International Health and Development Unit, Monash University, Clayton, VIC, Australia.
OBJECTIVES: To determine the effects of diets rich in soy and linseed compared with a control diet on biochemical markers of prostate cancer in men diagnosed with prostate cancer. METHODS: Twenty-nine men diagnosed with prostate cancer and scheduled to undergo a radical prostatectomy were randomized to one of three groups: soy (high phytoestrogen), soy and linseed (high phytoestrogen), or wheat (low phytoestrogen). A bread was specially manufactured to incorporate 50 g of heat-treated (HT) soy grits or 50 g of HT soy grits and 20 g of linseed as part of the study participant's daily diet. Baseline and preoperative levels of prostate-specific antigen (PSA), free PSA, testosterone, sex hormone-binding globulin, free androgen index, and dihydrotestosterone were measured. RESULTS: Statistically significant differences were detected between the HT soy grits group and the control wheat group for the percentage of change in total PSA (-12.7% versus 40%, P = 0.02) and the percentage of change in free/total PSA ratio (27.4% versus -15.6%, P = 0.01); and between the HT soy grits group and the HT soy grits and linseed group for the percentage of change in free androgen index (16.4% versus -15.5%, P = 0.04) and the percentage of change in free/total PSA ratio (27.4% versus -10%, P = 0.007). CONCLUSIONS: The data from this study indicate that a daily diet containing four slices of a bread rich in HT soy grits favorably influences the PSA level and the free/total PSA ratio in patients with prostate cancer. This work provides some evidence to support epidemiologic studies claiming that male populations who consume high phytoestrogen diets have a reduced risk of prostate cancer development and progression.

Genistein and daizein is o.k.
Genistein and daidzein downregulate prostate androgen-regulated transcript-1 (PART-1) gene expression induced by dihydrotestosterone in human prostate LNCaP cancer cells. Yu L, Blackburn GL, Zhou JR.
Nutrition/Metabolism Laboratory, Department of Surgery, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA 02215, USA.
Epidemiologic investigations and laboratory studies suggest that bioactive soy phytochemical components may be used as an effective dietary regimen for prevention of prostate cancer. Studies designed to identify new genes that are responsive to androgens and are sensitive to the prevention of prostate cancer using soy bioactive components have become a research priority. In this study, we determined the effect of soy isoflavones on the expression of prostate androgen-regulated transcript 1 (PART-1), a newly discovered androgen-induced gene that may represent a novel androgen-dependent prostate cancer tumor marker. In an androgen-depleted cell culture system, 5alpha-dihydrotestosterone (DHT) induced expression of PART-1 transcript in androgen-sensitive LNCaP, but not in androgen-independent DU 145 or PC-3 human prostate cancer cells. The soy isoflavones genistein and daidzein dose-dependently inhibited DHT-induced expression of the PART-1 transcript. Genistein at 50 micro mol/L completely inhibited expression of the PART-1 transcript in LNCaP cells induced by DHT at 0.1 and 1.0 nmol/L. Daidzein was less potent than genistein, whereas glycitein at the same levels as genistein or daidzein did not inhibit DHT-induced PART-1 transcript expression. Our studies suggest that use of the PART-1 gene as a biomarker for evaluating the efficacy of soy isoflavones on androgen-dependent prostate cancer warrants further investigation.

I had severe acid reflux and ulcers. I took mastic gum by Now co. There are other companies too. I took capsules. It WILL cure both ailments,but you must keep taking it until you get symptons vanish -of course! It has been shown to fight prostate cancer. See net for tests and research. Great substance if one stays with it. A million times better than baking soda!
[The following email has been excerpted from a emailed dialogue between one of readers and Ted. The full Q&A text can be found on Low Immunity cures page.] Thank you again Ted, I have good news to report. My brother, after only a few days on lemon-bicarbonate twice a day says that his phlebitis is practically gone (not only better). He has suffered with this leg's vein for three years and tried everything but after just 4-5 days of this remedy his pain is completely gone, he feels the vein "fresh" vs the "fire" he felt before. He cannot believe it... My mother who is 74 and has a lot of problems is feeling much better too. She didn't have any appetite, most of the times she wouldn't have dinner just because she didn't feel like eating (she also has memory loss, stomach problems, always exhausted, what seems a chronic cough etc.) after the same amount of days she says she is very hungry and that she can be active all day long. She is having three meals a day now!! Thank you so much for this really healing water!!! All the best, D"
12/10/2006: D wrote Ted again: "My father has been taking your lemon-bicarbonate formula for 20 days and also some (little) potassium bicarbonate and citric acid. You remember that the doctor told him he had prostate cancer, his PSA level were extremely high. He also has been taking for three months some pills that the doctor gave him and an injection every three months, a sort of hormone suppressant. Well he just tested and his PSA is normal. The doctor was surprised and told, I quote: "so it was not cancer but just an infection". What I understand from his word that their medicines are not supposed to do this, so I really think it was the lemon-bicarbonate plus potassium that worked, we hadn't even started the cesium yet! Thank you so much Ted, D.
First I am not a doctor or medically trained professional but this info is from personal experiences. I have also heard success stories from other people and a few doctors that have had patients tell them they have done the same thing. We have a family friend that had prostate cancer and was told by his doctor that if he didnt begin aggresive chemo treatment immediately he would only have 3-6 months to live. He refused becuase he didnt want to endure this torture and began to seek new treatments. He began drinking organic barley green grass 3 times a day, ate less red meat and ate more veggies. A few weeks later he went to the doctor again and the doctor was amazed at the result and told him I dont know what you are doing but I want you to keep it up because it seems to be helping you. This was almost 2 years ago and he is doing extremely well. This has also worked to help shrink fibroids. Barley green is known for removing harmfull toxins from your body. You may want to drink Organic Barley Green Grass powedered/granules Not In Pill Form. You can mix it with water or apple juice but nothing acidic (no orange or lemon juice), nothing with caffeine.

Curcumin Preparation and Bioavailability
Curcumin is getting lots of scientific interest these days. Every month additional scientific studies are published on the effects of curcumin on different biochemical pathways.
Just keep one thing in mind. The curcumin used in these laboratory studies was dissolved in alcohol or DMSO. In short, the curcumin was made soluble in certain solvents that do not translate well for introduction into the human body.
The following two papers studied the effects of 3.6 grams of oral curcumin, in capsules, on humans. The first study is quite clear that curcumin simply does not enter the body in sufficient quantities to be medically effective.
In this study, oral doses of 3.6 grams of curcumin a day showed blood levels of 10nM. This is a VERY low concentration of curcumin. Yet, it was apparently enough to reduce prostaglandin E2 synthesis in colon cancer patients.
In order for curcumin to be maximally effective against cancer, it MUST be introduced into the body in a bioavailable form. Curcumin is almost totally insoluble in water. On the other hand, it is completely soluble in fat.
Curcumin dissolves readily in coconut milk or cream, especially if they are warm. There is NO reason to boil coconut milk or cream in order to dissolve curcumin. Never boil anything unless you are absolutely certain the heat will not damage the medicinal properties of the natural medicine. I have no idea how heat stable curcumin is for medicinal purposes. So don't boil it.
Curcumin that is dissolved in fat will be introduced into the lymphatic system with the fat. There is exactly where we want curcumin to be introduced into the body. The lymphatic fluid bathes all the tissues in the body. We are NOT interested in directly introducing it into the blood.
People complain about the taste of curcumin. So add other spices, such as turmeric, or other spices to the mix to change the taste.
How much curcumin do we need to treat cancer and leukemia? No one knows but I would recommend at least 10 grams a day, 5 grams twice a day dissolved in fat. Since curcumin is not toxic, why screw around with low doses?
You must use glutamine, at least 20 grams a day, with the curcumin to make it maximally effective. I blogged on this issue yesterday.
For a really insightful viewpoint on iodine, check out this lecture by Dr. David Brownstein (http://www.internetwks.com/clips/bsBCancer.rm) about iodine and its deficiency relationship to Breast Cancer. Note he also suspects an unproven relationship between an iodine deficiency and Prostate Cancer.
He mentions that the Japanese diet includes 14mg per day of iodine on the average (coastal Japanese ingest even more.) The US RDA is 150 ugs (micro grams) per day -- about 100 times less than the Japanese eat -- and the recommended upper level for iodine is no more than 1.1 mg/day, and they estimate the average requirement to be 95 micrograms per day or about 150 times less than the Japanese consume.
The 125mg Kelp tablets that I have from Vitamin Shoppe, have 225 ugs of iodine in them. Thus, to get to the Japanese level of Iodine (14 mg/day), I would have to take 62 of these tablets a day! Dr. Brownstein also states that iodine is stored in the thyroid which requires 6 mg/day and is also stored in a women's breasts and required for proper breast development. The breasts require 5 mg/day for a 110 lb woman.
And catch this... Breast cancer researchers have to starve test animals of iodine in order to be able to induce breast cancer in any significant number of them. Hmmm...
Another 2 mg/day of iodine is required by the adrenals, hypothalamus, pituitary, and other organs. Therefore, the total required iodine for a woman is 5 6 2 = 13 mg/day. The RDA is 150 ugs per day, so a woman would have to take 86 times as much as this to achieve the 13 mg/day needed by her body, and even more if she had a larger body or bigger breasts. A man has smaller breasts and his prostate requires somewhat less iodine than a woman's breasts. However, a man's body is generally larger than 110 lbs, so this would have to be factored into the total requirements for a man.
Dr. Brownstein states, "Over the last 30 years, iodine levels have fallen over 50% in the United States. Breast cancer rates have risen dramatically. Thyroid illness from hypothyroidism, autoimmune including Grave's and Hashimoto's, as well as thyroid cancer has risen dramatically."
Since the Japanese have so much iodine in their bodies (they're ingesting 100X our 150 ug RDA of iodine), and iodine is essential for dealing with radiation exposure, it makes me wonder what might happen happen if there were a mishap involving massive radiation exposure in a country such as ours where the iodine level is so pathetically low.
And this may well be an important consideration, as cancer rates have been shown to rise after radiation has been released into the atmosphere, which apparently happened quite a bit with the use of depleted uranium (DU) weapons in Iraq in 2003. Background radiation levels were measured at many times normal in England (click this link - http://www.llrc.org/aldermastrept.pdf - and check the graphs) just a few days after the fighting started in Iraq. Cancer rates in Iraq in 2001 were about 10X what they were before Desert Storm where much less DU was used than in 2003. The big problem is that the effects are global (see: http://www.mindfully.org/Nucs/2006/DU-Europe-Moret26feb06.htm). So, the problem for us is that the DU rounds burn up or pulverize and tend to stay in the atmosphere, allowing the "aerosol of sub micron" size to enter the slip-stream and come back to America to bite us all.
Therefore, we all need to be aware of any nutritional and purification techniques which will handle radiation.
I've just upped my iodine intake to 1.35 mg/day (6 kelp tablets of 225 ug each) and I feel warmer already (maybe this will help me burn off my excess fat even faster.)
Hello, My father has prostate cancer with stage 4, we would like to take SSG HERB (fresh juice). Can you share how to use lysine to work with the SSG fresh juice?
RE: Prostate. You should also seriously consider Small Flowered Willow Herb. A serious help for Bladder and Prostate.
For the prostate cancer questions with blackstrap MOLASSES.. The 1 to 1 ratio of I teaspoon of blackstrap molasses and 1 of soda... How many times a day? or just once?
Thanks for your feedback on cayenne, the reports back on the regime, are starting to look like, it's a good treatment for problems with regards to the prostate. There's good research linking it with the ability to attack leukemic and lung cancer cells as well.
I am also using cayenne pepper regularly as treatment for enlarged prostate.
Twenty-five years ago, a urologist wanted to put me in the hospital to cut my prostate because my test results were high (at that time about 4. 5). I told him I'd "sleep on it" and passed. Then I started taking Saw Palmetto, about 450 mg twice daily. For 25 years this has been my remedy and has allowed me to urinate relatively freely, until recently, when my urine stream began to weaken and my bladder never seemed completely empty.
The last BPH(?) test showed my prostate had grown larger (test results had increased to about 10. 5). I continued using saw palmetto, but was getting up at night every two hours to urinate and could not completely empty my bladder. Annoying to say the least.
Then, about 3 months ago, I began following the cayenne pepper protocol:
1) one heaping tsp. cayenne with
2) fresh squeezed juice of one-half lemon in
3) Five or six ounces lukewarm water mixed well
every morning on an empty stomach.
It was suggested I try this "if you're man enough" and I tried. I have always been fond of hot and spicey foods, being particularly enamored of hot and spicey Thai and other Oriental dishes, but the cayenne and lemon juice in warm water was a shock!
It took about 5 or 6 days of ingesting this concoction regularly every morning before I was really "man enough" to swig it down every day without choking or wincing or sneezing uncontrollably!
Now I find that my urinating is more completely emptying my bladder, that I don't get up nearly so much during the night, and I am also experiencing much more vigor and energy.
I am scheduled for updating prostate lab tests early next year and am anxious to see if my results validate this therapy. I can hear the urologist now saying "Whatever you're doing, it's working well, so keep it up."
I am recovering from a heart attack (two years ago), with 100 % occlusion of my right coronary artery. I am convinced that the cayenne protocol is also helping me to flush the plaque out of my arteries to allow the blood to flow more freely. I would say cayenne pepper allows the blood to flow more freely throughout the body's systems and carry more oxygen where it's needed at the cellular level.
Here's to better health, all of you! Take the cayenne pepper remedy - "if you're man enough! " Give it a try for at least a week or two to experience the results.
I've just finished reading a report from "pepperlover" in topix forum.. who was diagnosed with prostate cancer, he didnt want it removed and started taking 600mg of cayenne over a day.. In a few days he was able to urinate freely again and.. within two weeks he could orgasm again.. When he went to the doctor for a check up a month or two later.. the test showed no signs of cancer the doctor couldnt believe it.... He got the idea from a trail on rats who were given the human prostate cancer cell... The good news seems to be that cayenne seems to be working on other types of cancer cells.
I'm sure your regime is right. I instictivly knocked off dairy after I had a prostate operation ten years ago. Mainly due to the fact that the incident of breast cancer increase seems to be mirroring that of prostate cancer... A female doctor who fixed her breast cancer by ceasing all dairy.. remembering that in China it was called rich womens disease! As the rich were the only ones that could afford dairy produce and the only ones to get breast cancer. I have had no furthur problems... Just remember that cayenne seems to send prostate cancer cells into suicide mode.
PLEASE people when you post replies of a successful treatment tell us how much ACV, CINNOMON ETC TO TAKE WITH HOW MUCH WATER.. THANK YOU FROM ALL OF US.
Saw Palmetto and Goldenseal
My brother has Prostate glands problem, please advice, what herbal could do to alleviate/cure the ailment?
Please I want more information on how to use cayenne pepper to reduce my enlarged prostrate gland. At the age of 67, I have enlarged prostrate gland and for the past three(3) months have been catheter. I spent 3 weeks at a sanitorium in Nigeia and was discharged against my will because I desire to leave there with a reduced prostrate gland. I don't want to go for surgery though sometime I bleed just a little. My PSA is 4.0. Please help me with proven cures using cayenne pepper with or without other natural herbs.
Hi Paul, I am a 48 year old thats been suffering with prostate issue for a long time and I saw your meassage on Cayenne pepper and that you are a naturopahtic healer and would apprieate it if I could talk to you about my prostate issue. My prostate keeps me up at night because I can't empty my bladder. thanks
Prostate Tumor Formula
Mortie, Can you please tell me where I can find this prostate formula?
you could try calcium hypochorite powder .. it is cheap and easily purchased from your local pool chemical shop. A google search on Jim Humble will bring up further details . I gave the info to a friend, he has had an infection on his arm causing a lot of discomfort and Drs have tried treating it for over 8 years ... it was completely healed in just over a week. His brother has prostate problems and he has started using it with good results, Do some research first, according to Jim Humble he first used it to treat Prostate cancer with great success
Vitamin D3, Green Tea, Soy Nuts
Hope this is helpful. Brother-in-law had diagnosed prostate cancer. While waiting for surgery at Stanford University Hospital, he started taking Vit. D3 (don't know amount) and drinking green tea and eating "soy nuts". By the time he went to arrange last minute particulars for surgery his cancer was gone.
Lemon Juice and Baking Soda, Magnesium Chloride
Dear Lewis, I wish you and your freind good health. I posted a link about curing cancer naturally but the link was removed according to Earth clinics rules and regulations. Which are great rules since there are so many people trying to cheat and sell today on the web. But do some searches on the subject and then you will come across how barley affects cancer and also the paricular baking soda remedy that the italian doctor came up with. I will find out the recipe of the drink my dad took. Good to get off the lechitin and personally like I said before I would not touch the flax seed oil. But do some research for your friend since I guess one never really knows. Although I am a firm beleiver in natural cures my father took a combination cure for his prostate cancer as I said before. It seemed to have worked brilliantly. He took the hormone route but it was interesting when I was in London I met one of the most famous cancer surgeons through a friend and he was shocked when I told him about my dad taking the hormone treatment..this doctor swears by cutting it out when it comes to cancer and has a great success rate doing it that way. I guess at the end of the day one has to feel themselves what is the best thing to do. One thing is for sure is to enjoy the small things in life and try not to worry because it REALLY will make you sick!
Please keep me updated,
Lemon Juice and Baking Soda, Magnesium Chloride
Nopey, i will endeavour to get the barley powder for him as well.
sincere thanks again.
Lemon Juice and Baking Soda, Magnesium Chloride
To, nopey, of arkansas usa. thank you for your response; i have advised my friend to
discontinue the lecithin, and to subsitute the molasses for the lemon juice. he has
agreed. i will post again when he pepeats the psa test.
thank you so much for the suggestions.
in peace profound,
Lemon Juice and Baking Soda, Magnesium Chloride
That is bad news I have some suggestions since this is obviously not working for your friend. Perhaps try the baking soda and the molasses that has been written about many times. It is said that the sugar in the molasses bings the cancer cells out and the baking soda then attacks it. My father has or better said had prostate cancer and even though he took the hormone route given by the doctor he drank a remedy every night that contain black liquorice extract mixed with alcohol. I will try and get the exact recipe and get back to you. He was actaully was drinking soya milk on reccomendation of his doctor but no longer drinks it. I myself would perhaps not take flax seed oil according to Budwigds protocol since flax seed can affects the hormones and in your freinds case it could be doing the opposite if what he wants. I am female and have seen the effects of flax oil on myself which where positive since my hormones have been all over the place. But as you already know there is a big difference in the male and female endocrine systems.
I was reccomended to take barley powder in attempts to detox from a medication and have been pleasantly surprised that is really does flush the body of unwated toxins. When Itake it the whites of my eyes turn very white.. I say that is a great sign. When i researched the Barley powder I came across a man who beleived it helped cure him of his prostate cancer. I have been trying to get my dad on it but he is as stubborn as a mule;-)
I would also take vitamin q10. I had a hormone specialist who reccomeded that for almost everyone it helped clear her of her breast cancer.
Although I have never had cancer myself but dealt with chronic illness I find this an amazing site especially the studies done on how negative thinking and stress really can make us more sick. I try to apply that to my life every day in comparison to before when I worried on a daily basis which really did make me more ill. I have never ordered anything from this site so i can not reccomend any products.
Good luck with your friend and best wishes.
P.s. Lechithin is made from soya and there are plenty of contradictions that soya can make prostate cancer worse. Even though my father drank soya for a short time during his treatment i would personally stay away from it. Thats just my opinion.
