  1. Intravenous vitamin C a life-saver for cancer patients

    Natural protocol destroys cancer cells -- without the side effects

    Q: Have you had any luck using intravenous vitamin C to treat cancer?

    G.R.: Actually, I've had tremendous success using intravenous vitamin C (IVC) to treat just about every cancer you can imagine.

    And it's an absolute disgrace that many cancer patients are not being offered access to this life-saving treatment.

    You see, the mainstream is obsessed with taking a "slash and burn" approach to treating cancer. They want to use surgery, radiation, and chemo to either cut or poison the cancer out of your system.

    The only problem is that the side effects are brutal, and plenty of healthy tissue becomes collateral damage.

    IVC is different. You see, high doses of vitamin C in the blood help generate the production of hydrogen peroxide, which is toxic to cancer cells.

    And there are very few, if any, side effects for most patients.

    Even the federal government admits that studies have shown that IVC can slow or stop the spread of cancer. And the University of Kansas Medical Center even publishes an IVC protocol that lots of alternative docs like me use.

    I can't tell you how many patients' lives I've extended using IVC. The science behind it is solid, and it's been used successfully for many, many years.

    Of course, without Big Pharma pushing it, expect IVC to stay out of favor with the mainstream. Some hospitals and cancer centers do offer it, but odds are you'll have to call around to alternative doctors in your area to find someone who specializes in IVC.

  2. Been overweight a while? Beware of cancer

    Ditch the pounds to dodge cancer

    Ladies, I hate to break it to you, but time isn't on your side.

    If you've been overweight for a while, your body is a ticking time bomb.

    And it's not just the aching knees... the heart disease risk and blood sugar spikes... or even the sedentary lifestyle that could kill you.

    Because a new study shows that the more time you spend battling obesity, the greater chance you'll get cancer.

    In fact, data from 74,000 senior women collected by the Women's Health Initiative showed that the risk of cancer -- primarily breast, endometrial, kidney and colon cancers -- increases 10 percent for every 10 years spent obese.

    This doesn't mean that you're off the hook if you're only "overweight" and not "obese" -- because then, your risk climbs seven percent for every decade spent with extra poundage.

    This isn't "body-shaming" and it actually has nothing to do with the way that you look or how your clothes fit. It's just plain biochemistry, pure and simple.

    You see, extra body fat lifts your levels of estrogen, which increases the risk of breast and endometrial cancers.

    Extra weight also causes chronic inflammation in your body, which can actually feed tumors, helping them grow and spread.

    And as if that weren't bad enough, if there's a lot more of you to love and you do get cancer, you may not survive it. Excess weight contributes to nearly 20 percent of ALL cancer DEATHS.

    That's true even if you don't smoke... don't eat a lot of junk... and don't have diabetes.

    But that being said, if you don't already smoke, don't start. And if you're not diabetic, make sure you stay that way.

    When it comes to your weight, there's really no good reason to delay getting it under control. And the longer you've been overweight, the more urgent it is to do something about it... NOW.

    Because the funny thing about weight is, it doesn't seem to take very long to pack on the pounds... but unpacking them can take a lot longer. Your metabolism slows down as you get older, so it can get more and more difficult to shed any weight at all.

    If you've already ditched the carbs and sugars by going Paleo and you're still struggling to lose weight, you may be able to "tip the scale" in your favor by:

    • Go to bed earlier: According to a study last year, weight gain has been linked to later bedtimes.
    • Exercise: It not only burns calories while you're doing it, but it can also jumpstart a sluggish metabolism. And maybe you'll be so tired, you'll want to go to bed early.
    • Take a probiotic: Your gut controls your metabolism, and the right balance of "good" versus "bad" bugs is essential to successful weight management.
    • Stop stress eating: If you suffer from chronic stress, the Indian herb ashwagandha can actually help change HOW you eat and WHAT you crave.
    • Check your thyroid function: This critical gland can stimulate metabolism if it's working properly -- but if it's not, it can lead to weight gain.
  3. Stress can help cancer spread

    A new study shows that stress can turn your body into a “cancer superhighway” by allowing cancer cells to spread out of the tumor and into other areas of your body... six times faster than if you weren’t stressed.
  4. Natural compound quercetin a proven prostate cancer fighter

    Research has found that quercetin, a pigment found in plants, may slow the growth and spread of prostate cancer.
  5. High-fiber diet keeps your gut healthy

    Your overall health is affected by how quickly your body processes the food you eat and moves it through your intestinal tract. It turns out that the faster the foods passes through your gut, the healthier your gut flora… and the less chance of major diseases like cancer.
  6. The Paleo diet may prevent liver cancer

    Study shows that low levels of selenium are linked to two specific types of liver cancer. But increasing your intake of selenium through Paleo-friendly foods could reduce this risk.
  7. Nuts cut risk of death from prostate cancer

    Study shows that eating just five small servings of nuts each week can cut the risk of death from prostate cancer by a third!
  8. Exposing the myth on testosterone and prostate cancer

    Many mainstream docs still claim testosterone can cause prostate cancer, even though studies have debunked any link.
  9. Belly fat linked to aggressive prostate cancer risk

    Excess belly fat has been shown to increase the risk of prostate cancer by 13 percent. And according to a new study, the bigger your waistline, the more aggressive the cancer!
  10. Limiting carbs shown to slow brain tumors

    Mice that severely limited their carb intake were able to slow or even stop a brain tumor in its tracks... which doubled their lifespan!
