Cancer Fighting Food… Hard Core Fighters…

Hi y’all,

I posted something on my facebook wall as a “Call To Arms” and a call for help.  I’m simply going to copy and paste from there as I can’t type another line, and, one can use all the help one can get.  I’m reaching out, I’m doing much on my end but as much input as I can get here is better.  I’m not really sure if this is the place and I’m not posting this for sympathy.  It’s a path I chose to roll with rather than orthodox methods of treatment.  I’ve in the past taken treatment and I’m here to tell ya, not good.   I’m sure there are success stories from folks that have injected poisonous chemicals into them, with a healthy diet to help them from the “Cancer Centers of America”.  I, however, do not have the insurance or cash to take that route and to be honest would never put that garbage in my body again.  I was so sick, I couldn’t function.  Anyway… Any info or food sources that can help would be awesome…

Thank you in advance for any time, prayer, good energy, healing thoughts or just anything, for helping not just me but anyone looking for help in this area as well.  There is a commercial on TV that says, make noise because there is a cure… Well the cure is in nature and in the mind, heart and Love…
=======

Ok, I’ve rewritten this so many times I’m just gunna say what’s up then say what I need… Ok… If you are weak at heart ya might wanna skip to the end… So, It’s no secret I’ve battled Cancer and held it at bay even thought it was gone.  I really work on not giving it power of my thought or even being a part of my life.  Here’s the thing.  Not only have I had a rebound It’s kinda spreading around a bit and it’s pissed…  So here is what the Docs seem to have found in me at present…

#1 – Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia, so far in Stage 2 – I’m not really to worried about this However it’s there…
In people with CLL/SLL, the lymphocytes don’t mature properly. These faulty cells do not die normally but instead accumulate in the bone marrow, bloodstream, and organs of the body. The buildup of abnormal lymphocytes not only interferes with the function of the immune system but also disrupts the production of other blood cells and the functions of vital organs, including the spleen. As a result, a person becomes more at risk of developing infections, anemia, and other cancers, including skin cancer and more serious cancers of the lymphocytes.

Over 15,000 new cases of CLL/SLL are expected to be diagnosed in the United States this year. The disease is typically diagnosed in adults in their mid-60s and is rarely found in people under the age of 40. Men are nearly twice as likely to develop this disease as women. CLL/SLL is more common in Caucasians and Afro-Americans and rarely diagnosed in people with ancestors from China, Japan, and other parts of Southeast Asia.

The outlook for a person diagnosed with CLL/SLL varies widely. For 2 out of 3 patients, the disease either remains stable for many years or progresses very slowly. These patients can delay treatment for several years or may never need treatment at all. In the remaining third of patients, the disease progresses quickly and brings about debilitating symptoms. For these patients, treatment is critical to slow down the disease and prolong their life. Approximately 4,500 people in the United States are expected to die this year from CLL/SLL. A thorough evaluation by a doctor who specializes in blood disorders and is experienced with CLL/SLL is vital to ensure that life-sustaining treatment is started when needed.

#2 – Bladder Cancer (New Tumors)
#3 – Prostate Cancer (Transitional Cell Carcinoma) Can Be a slow mover but with the others it could mutate and is probably where the next one came from…
#4 –  Kidney Cancer – AKA, renal adenocarcinoma or hypernephroma. Another type of cancer, transitional cell carcinoma, affects the renal pelvis. It is similar to bladder cancer and is often treated like bladder cancer.
and the fun part of all this is it’s really pissed.  I get tired and sometimes dizzy.  I’m bleeding heavily and have pain in the pelvis area.  Ok I know maybe TMI but just thought I’d share.

So here is what I need from my friends… I am looking for power foods.  I’m on a very limited budget so what I get must be fresh, and powerful.  I do have a list of stuff so lemme share that with ya…

Cancer Fighting Foods/Spices

The National Cancer Institute estimates that roughly one-third of all cancer deaths may be diet related. What you eat can hurt you, but it can also help you. Many of the common foods found in grocery stores or organic markets contain cancer-fighting properties, from the antioxidants that neutralize the damage caused by free radicals to the powerful phytochemicals that scientists are just beginning to explore. There isn’t a single element in a particular food that does all the work: The best thing to do is eat a variety of foods.

The following foods have the ability to help stave off cancer and some can even help inhibit cancer cell growth or reduce tumor size.

Avocados Moot, I’m alergic…

Broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower have a chemical component called indole-3-carbinol that can combat breast cancer by converting a cancer-promoting estrogen into a more protective variety.

Broccoli, especially sprouts, also have the phytochemical sulforaphane, a product of glucoraphanin – believed to aid in preventing some types of cancer, like colon and rectal cancer. Sulforaphane induces the production of certain enzymes that can deactivate free radicals and carcinogens. The enzymes have been shown to inhibit the growth of tumors in laboratory animals.  However, be aware that the Agriculture Department studied 71 types of broccoli plants and found a 30-fold difference in the amounts of glucoraphanin. It appears that the more bitter the broccoli is, the more glucoraphanin it has. Broccoli sprouts have been developed under the trade name BroccoSprouts that have a consistent level of sulforaphane – as much as 20 times higher than the levels found in mature heads of broccoli.

Carrots contain a lot of beta carotene, which may help reduce a wide range of cancers including lung, mouth, throat, stomach, intestine, bladder, prostate and breast. Some research indicated beta carotene may actually cause cancer, but this has not proven that eating carrots, unless in very large quantities – 2 to 3 kilos a day, can cause cancer.  In fact, a substance called falcarinol that is found in carrots has been found to reduce the risk of cancer, according to researchers at Danish Institute of Agricultural Sciences (DIAS). Kirsten Brandt, head of the research department, explained that isolated cancer cells grow more slowly when exposed to falcarinol. This substance is a polyacethylen, however, so it is important not to cook the carrots.

Chili peppers and jalapenos contain a chemical, capsaicin, which may neutralize certain cancer-causing substances (nitrosamines) and may help prevent cancers such as stomach cancer.

Cruciferous vegetables – broccoli, cauliflower, kale, Brussels sprouts, and cabbage contain two antioxidants, lutein and zeaxanthin that may help decrease prostate and other cancers.

Figs apparently have a derivative of benzaldehyde. It has been reported that investigators at the Institute of Physical and Chemical Research in Tokyo say benzaldehyde is highly effective at shrinking tumors, though I haven’t seen this report. In addition, the U.S. Department of Agriculture says figs, which contain vitamins A and C, and calcium, magnesium and potassium, may curtail appetite and improve weight-loss efforts. Fig juice is also a potent bacteria killer in test-tube studies.

Flax contains lignans, which may have an antioxidant effect and block or suppress cancerous changes. Flax is also high in omega-3 fatty acids, which are thought to protect against colon cancer and heart disease. See Budwig diet for a specialized diet using flax seed oil and cottage cheese. For studies about flax seed and flax oil, go to our Important News or Archives Page.

Garlic has immune-enhancing allium compounds (dialyl sultides) that appear to increase the activity of immune cells that fight cancer and indirectly help break down cancer causing substances. These substances also help block carcinogens from entering cells and slow tumor development. Diallyl sulfide, a component of garlic oil, has also been shown to render carcinogens in the liver inactive. Studies have linked garlic — as well as onions, leeks, and chives — to lower risk of stomach and colon cancer. Dr. Lenore Arab, professor of epidemiology and nutrition at the UNC-CH (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill) schools of public health and medicine and colleagues analyzed a number of studies and reported their findings in the October 2000 issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. According to the report, people who consume raw or cooked garlic regularly face about half the risk of stomach cancer and two-thirds the risk of colorectal cancer as people who eat little or none. Their studies didn’t show garlic supplements had the same effect. It is believed garlic may help prevent stomach cancer because it has anti-bacterial effects against a bacterium, Helicobacter pylori, found in the stomach and known to promote cancer there.

Grapefruits, like oranges and other citrus fruits, contain monoterpenes, believed to help prevent cancer by sweeping carcinogens out of the body. Some studies show that grapefruit may inhibit the proliferation of breast-cancer cells in vitro. They also contains vitamin C, beta-carotene, and folic acid.

Grapes, red contain bioflavonoids, powerful antioxidants that work as cancer preventives. Grapes are also a rich source of resveratrol, which inhibits the enzymes that can stimulate cancer-cell growth and suppress immune response. They also contain ellagic acid, a compound that blocks enzymes that are necessary for cancer cells – this appears to help slow the growth of tumors.

Studies show that consumption of green and yellow leafy vegetables has been associated with lower levels of stomach cancer.

Kale has indoles, nitrogen compounds which may help stop the conversion of certain lesions to cancerous cells in estrogen-sensitive tissues. In addition, isothiocyanates, phytochemicals found in kale, are thought to suppress tumor growth and block cancer-causing substances from reaching their targets.

Licorice root has a chemical, glycyrrhizin, that blocks a component of testosterone and therefore may help prevent the growth of prostate cancer. However, excessive amounts can lead to elevated blood pressure.

Mushrooms – There are a number of mushrooms that appear to help the body fight cancer and build the immune system – Shiitake, maitake, reishi, Agaricus blazei Murill, and Coriolus Versicolor.  These mushrooms contain polysaccharides, especially  Lentinan, powerful compounds that help in building immunity. They are a source of Beta Glucan. They also have a protein called lectin, which attacks cancerous cells and prevents them from multiplying. They also contain Thioproline. These mushrooms can stimulate the production of interferon in the body. Extracts from mushrooms have been successfully tested in recent years in Japan as an adjunct to chemotherapy. PSK is made from the Coriolus Versicolor. Maitake mushroom extract is PCM4.

Nuts contain the antioxidants quercetin and campferol that may suppress the growth of cancers. Brazil nut contains 80 micrograms of selenium, which is important for those with prostate cancer. (Note: Many people are allergic to the proteins in nuts, so if you have any symptoms such as itchy mouth, tight throat, wheezing, etc. after eating nuts, stop. Consider taking a selenium supplement instead or work with someone on how to eliminate this allergy.)

Oranges and lemons contain Iimonene which stimulates cancer-killing immune cells (lymphocytes, e.g.) that may also break down cancer-causing substances.

Papayas have vitamin C that works as an antioxidant and may also reduce absorption of cancer-causing nitrosamines from the soil or processed foods. Papaya contains folacin (also known as folic acid), which has been shown to minimize cervical dysplasia and certain cancers.

Raspberries contain many vitamins, minerals, plant compounds and antioxidants known as anthocyanins that may protect against cancer. According to a recent research study reported by Cancer Research 2001;61:6112-6119, rats fed diets of 5% to 10% black raspberries saw the number of esophageal tumors decrease by 43% to 62%. A diet containing 5% black raspberries was more effective than a diet containing 10% black raspberries. Research reported in the journal Nutrition and Cancer in May 2002 shows black raspberries may also thwart colon cancer. Black raspberries are rich in antioxidants, thought to have even more cancer-preventing properties than blueberries and strawberries.

Red wine, even without alcohol, has polyphenols that may protect against various types of cancer. Polyphenols are potent antioxidants, compounds that help neutralize disease-causing free radicals.  Also, researchers at the University of North Carolina’s medical school in Chapel Hill found the compound resveratrol, which is found in grape skins. It appears that resveratrol inhibits cell proliferation and can help prevent cancer. However, the findings didn’t extend to heavy imbibers, so it should be used in moderation. In addition, alcohol can be  toxic to the liver and to the nervous system, and many wines have sulfites, which may be harmful to your health. Note:  some research indicates that alcohol is considered a class “A” carcinogen which can actually cause cancer – see http://www.jrussellshealth.com/alccanc.html. You should probably switch to non-alcoholic wines.

Rosemary may help increase the activity of detoxification enzymes. An extract of rosemary, termed carnosol, has inhibited the development of both breast and skin tumors in animals. We haven’t found any studies done on humans. Rosemary can be used as a seasoning. It can also be consumed as a tea: Use 1 tsp. dried leaves per cup of hot water; steep for 15 minutes.

Seaweed and other sea vegetables contain beta-carotene, protein, vitamin B12, fiber, and chlorophyll, as well as chlorophylones – important fatty acids that may help in the fight against breast cancer. Many sea vegetables also have high concentrations of the minerals potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron, and iodine.

Soy products like tofu contain several types of phytoestrogens — weak, nonsteroidal estrogens that could help prevent both breast and prostate cancer by blocking and suppressing cancerous changes. There are a number of isoflavones in soy products, but research has shown that genistein is the most potent inhibitor of the growth and spread of cancerous cells. It appears to lower breast-cancer risk by inhibiting the growth of epithelial cells and new blood vessels that tumors require to flourish and is being scrutinized as a potential anti-cancer drug.  However, there are some precautions to consider when adding soy to your diet. Eating up to 4 or 5 ounces of tofu or other soy a day is probably ok, but research is being done to see if loading up on soy could cause hormone imbalances that stimulate cancer growth. As a precaution, women who have breast cancer or are at high risk should talk to their doctors before taking pure isoflavone powder and pills, extracted from soy.

Sweet potatoes contain many anticancer properties, including beta-carotene, which may protect DNA in the cell nucleus from cancer-causing chemicals outside the nuclear membrane.

Teas: Green Tea and Black tea contain certain antioxidants known as polyphenols (catechins) which appear to prevent cancer cells from dividing. Green tea is best, followed by our more common black tea (herbal teas do not show this benefit). According to a report in the July 2001 issue of the Journal of Cellular Biochemistry, these polyphenols that are abundant in green tea, red wine and olive oil, may protect against various types of cancer. Dry green tea leaves, which are about 40% polyphenols by weight, may also reduce the risk of cancer of the stomach, lung, colon, rectum, liver and pancreas, study findings have suggested.

Tapioca is derived from the cassava plant. It is one of the many plants that manufactures cyanide by producing a chemical called linamarine which releases hydrogen cyanide when it is broken down by the linamarase enzyme. Spanish researches have been studying the cassava and attempting to clone the genes from the plant which are responsible for producing the hydrogen cyanide and then transfer it to a retrovirus.  However, funding for the project has run out. http://news.bbc.co.uk/hi/english/health/newsid_317000/317467.stm for more information on this. For a list of other foods that contain B17, go to our laetrile page.

Tomatoes contain lycopene, an antioxidant that attacks roaming oxygen molecules, known as free radicals, that are suspected of triggering cancer. It appears that the hotter the weather, the more lycopene tomatoes produce. They also have vitamin C, an antioxidant which can prevent cellular damage that leads to cancer. Watermelons, carrots, and red peppers also contain these substances, but in lesser quantities. It is concentrated by cooking tomatoes.  Scientists in Israel have shown that lycopene can kill mouth cancer cells. An increased intake of lycopene has already been linked to a reduced risk of breast, prostate, pancreas and colorectal cancer. (Note: Recent studies indicate that for proper absorption, the body also needs some oil along with lycopene.)

Tumeric (curcuma longa), a member of the ginger family, is believed to have medicinal properties because it inhibits production of the inflammation-related enzyme cyclo-oxygenase 2 (COX-2), levels of which are abnormally high in certain inflammatory diseases and cancers, especially bowel and colon cancer. In fact, a pharmaceutical company Phytopharm in the UK hopes to introduce a natural product, P54, that contains certain volatile oils, which greatly increase the potency of the turmeric spice.

Turnips are said to contain glucose molaes which is a cancer fighting compound. I haven’t confirmed this.

Consumption of fruits and vegetables has been associated with decreased risk of cancers of the colon and rectum.

There are many good books on this topic, including Vern Verona’s book on “Cancer Fighting Foods.”

Also there with alternative treatments I have this info so far…

Some of the alternativetherapies that are used include:

  • Nutrition – to boost the immune system, to increase natural mechanisms for eliminating the tumor, and to prevent reoccurrences.  Typically this includes nutritional supplements, intravenous protocols (such as high doses of vitamin C, anti-oxidants, and immune support nutrients), and diet (such as frequent raw vegetable juices, whole grains, legumes and elimination of foods which feed cancer and weaken the immune system).
  • Enzymes – to facilitate the breakdown of the protective coating around cancer cells and to support healthy metabolic processes.
  • Oxygenation – to bring vital energy to the cells, reverse tumor growth and facilitate the elimination of pathogens (fungi, bacteria and viruses) which may be weakening the immune system.  This may take the form of ozone therapy, deep breathing exercises and/or oxygenation of the blood directly through intravenous protocols.
  • Detoxification – to eliminate substances which may be burdening the immune system, compromising metabolic processes and blocking energy flow (e.g. heavy metals, pesticides, environmental toxins, and metabolic wastes).  This may take the form of herbal and nutritional products that open up the elimination channels (liver, kidney, colon, and urinary system), colonics, detoxification diets, and IV chelation protocols.
  • Emotional Healing – to eliminate toxic emotions and memories somatized in the body.  This may take the form of counseling, emotional release therapies, deep breathing, reiki, homeopathy, or bodywork.
  • Tumor Targeting – to aggressively reduce the tumor size.  This may take the form of cancer vaccines, hyperthermia, or chemotherapy alternatives such as ukrain, amygdalin, mistletoe, and carnivora.
  • Life Style Change and Stress Control – to assist the individual in making the necessary changes in their life structure and belief system to minimize stress.
  • Spiritual Connection – to re-connect the individual with their purpose for being alive and to strengthen their will to live.  This may take the form of prayer, meditation, or spiritual counseling.

I have cut refined sugar and cigarettes from my diet, along with pain meds and other forms of chemical meds, Unless I know what it has in it and it’s from the earth, it’s not going in me ever again … Hah, very funny, no I don’t eat cigs…  I’m still working on putting a healing diet in full swing… in the first place I really need to stop bleeding… If I haven’t mentioned I have refused any Chemo or surgery ever, it’s not on my agenda and it is not gunna happen.  I am doing this, with the help of love and the power of the amazing self righting machine God Gave me…  but the bleeding is freakin me out… plus it can’t be good… I’m not talk’n a little hematuria.  Full on pure red blood coming from my man part… I know sorry.. :/ but it freaks me out… this must stop now!

So here’s what I need.  With all this there is always something else, something that may be a super power food that is simple and something that with all the info on the net can be over looked of never found with extensive looking by one.  So If I could ask for a few minutes a day, even if it’s just one day… Of each of my friends and constant searching here I can get this to stop and go away.  I do work really hard on my self.  Inner work and cleansing the me and keeping it clean.  Visualize myself healthy and lean, clean healthy organs and daily Affirmations.  Many from one of my heros, Louise L Hay… check this out, this Woman cured herself of a Terminal Cancer with her mind and spirit…

http://youtu.be/0ZfAUVFDhcE Check her out…

There are more people and a few of my friends that can benefit from this group effort…

Please, if you have time awesome… if not that’s awesome too.  your prayer is awesome.  good thoughts, good vibes… We can join to heal each other…

It would be nice if I had my Blend Tech blender.  Perfect actually, but my ex room mates felt it was a cool thing for them to take from me and take advantage of.  after selling all my music gear for pennies and never called me to work on what they could get and maybe they didnt’ have to sell all my stuff for a utility bill under 300 bucks, that was encured when I wasn’t even there I was literally on the road for three months straight.  Oh not to mention the 1030.00 I paid for rent when I didn’t live there so I wouldn’t put them in a bind.  Money I had to borrow because I didn’t want my friends to be in dire straights and I even called them and it was always paid on time…  The same was not extended to me and over 3k in my music instruments was sold for pennies… they sold my Violin (worth 1100 bucks, for 30 bucks)  but I’m not bitter… I just have never said anything but it would be nice to have my blender 500 dollar blender…  Got some real good stuff from me that meant alot to me.  I was in dire straights and was taken to the cleaners… Ok, got that out… I hope they are healthy and safe really… Not bad people really, If it wasn’t for them I would have been in a world of shit a few times… but I always paid back for sure… blender…  😉  ok enough  Seriously I’ve let it go… I hope they have.

I’m over coming this as we are in this space…  I just need a hand with some stuff…

Much Love and peace…  Be sure to check out Louise… She is Awesome!

    • Hi Rebecca, thanks and I know right (on the pun thing). Live is precious and fragile. There are many things I’ve been working on with diet, mind, faith. It seems that I’m doing something right. I’ll have more info next week as I have more tests with my Oncologist. I may be opting out of the conventional treatment but I need to keep track of where I am. yesterday was not such a good day. Very weak and slept a a lot. Today… Today is good… Feeling strong… Be Well, Peace…

  1. Its always important to weigh up your options, no matter how big the decision! I’m glad you are feeling better today, sometimes the bad days feel like they overshadow the good – but do let it! I’m sure you are using that strength for something good! We are thinking of you. Best wishes. Bec.
