Today I bring you the concluding part of the treatment of cancer.
The Oxford Advanced Learners Dictionary defines the word supplement as a thing that is added to something else to improve or complete it. Supplements are concentrates of nutrients from natural sources, added to the diet to improve or complete it. Generally all over the world farmlands have been over-farmed, leading to depletion in the nutrients in the earth. For example, a study report in America states that the amount of ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) in oranges today is less than 50 per cent of what it was 50 years ago.
No matter how well and how balanced the diet may be, we never seem to get enough nutrients for the body’s daily needs. For this reason the diet has to be supplemented, ‘added to’ for optimal effect. In most aspects of the treatment of cancer, supplementation is involved and this goes to show that our diet was meant to keep us healthy in the first place. Not only that, supplementation plays a very important role in prevention of any disease including any kind of cancer. Let me now show the different aspects of the use of supplements in the treatment of cancer.
These are vitamins that donate an electron to a free radical, neutralising them in the process. As the free radicals receive an electron themselves they become stable, no longer searching for what to be attached to; they are no longer destructive. Included in this group are vitamins A, C, E and others like selenium.
Supplements that enhance immune system
These supplements play a most significant role in the treatment of cancer. Like I mentioned earlier in this series, an immune system that is performing its function optimally has the capacity to contain and destroy invading foreign bodies any time. Very often if not all the time diseases like cancer only afflict an individual whose immune system has been suppressed. We have also shown in the past that dehydration may be the commonest cause of immune system suppression. The first supplement that should enhance the immune system therefore, is water. Sufficient water in circulation in the body will no doubt improve the immune system as the circulatory system works better at eliminating the wastes.
By far the most powerful single supplement that helps to build up the immune system is I, 3/1, 6 Beta Glucan. This is a naturally occurring polysaccharide derived from the cell wall of bakers’ yeast. Other sources of Beta Glucan are oats, barley, seaweed, mushrooms etc. Beta Glucan is marketed locally as Immiflex. Some other immune enhancing supplements give support to beta Glucan and these are Olive leaf extract, green tea extract (because of the polyphenols in them), ginger and garlic. There are yet some other immune system enhancers that are not commonly used because of lack of knowledge. The first I would like to mention is LAUGH (yes as in LOL).
Researchers have found out that immunoglobulin A (an immune protein) in the saliva was lower on days that an individual was moody and higher on days of more positive mood. In other words, when you are unhappy and miserable your immune system becomes depressed and when you are cheerful and full of smiles, your immune system is enhanced. I tell my patients to watch CDs of Nigerian comedians so that they can laugh. I also ask that relatives of these patients should never come near them with negative and depressing stories.
Secondly, unfriendly bacteria in the intestines are some of the sources of toxins and acidic wastes that are implicated in the different kinds of cancer that afflict man. There are certain products collectively known as probiotics [Lactobacillus, acidophilus] which introduce the beneficial bacteria into the intestines. These friendly bacteria gotten from the probiotics enhance the intestinal flora, kill the harmful bacteria, reduce the toxins from the intestines, ensure more complete digestion and add to the immunity of the body.
By far the most exciting supplements are those that directly attack cancer cells and the most potent of them all is Vitamin B17 (otherwise known as amygdalin or laetrile). I call it the wisdom of God. I call it so because it is selective for cancer cells only; it destroys cancer cells with the cyanide that is in it. I need to explain this as simple as possible. When Vitamin B17 comes in contact with the cancer cells then and only then is the hydrogen cyanide (HCN) formed. The cancer cells contain an enzyme known as beta-glucosidase which breaks Vitamin B17 into glucose, benzyldehyde and HCN.
What this means is that if there are no cancer cells in the body you will not find beta-glucosidase and without beta-glucosidase hydrogen cyanide cannot be formed. The normal cells in the body contain another enzyme called Rhodanese which prevents the release of HCN from Vitamin B17. Vitamin B17 destroys cancer cells in their billions and it is my first line protocol for treating any kind of cancer. Vitamin B17 is commonly found in apricot seeds, almonds, peaches, berries, flaxseed, wheat grass, brown rice, rye, lentils, bitter leaf, bamboo shoot and so on. The supplements are presented as 100mg, 500mg tablets and injections of 3g in 10ml vials. It is found locally as Hunza capsules which contains 300mg Vitamin B17, 240mg Reishi extract and 240mg Vitamin C.
Two additional therapies in the treatment of cancer are, combating toxic emotions and Spiritual therapy. Toxic emotions are anger, hatred, bitterness, malice, unforgiveness etc. One who has cancer will be doing herself a lot of good if these types of emotions are deleted from their hearts. They add to the acidic wastes that accumulate in cancer patients.
The Spiritual aspect of cancer is a book on its own. I have already presented an article titled: “Chemical Spiritual Warfare” and I suggest you go get it from the archives. Having said that, I will like to state that the spiritual is so heavily involved in the issue of cancer in this part of the world and prayers must therefore be seen as an integral part of the treatment of cancer. In conclusion here is what the Lord Jesus Christ said in Matthew 17: 21; “Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.”
