Nine Essential Oils That Fight Cancer, Boost Immunity & Improve Feelings Of Well-Being

Published

on

In the United States there are only two approved treatments for cancer;these include radiation treatment and chemotherapy. This is a shame given the fact that a number of people are having success using alternative treatments. Despite that fact, this type of route for cancer treatment is still very shunned by the mainstream medical community, but it doesn’t make much sense as to why.

It doesn’t make sense because chemotherapy statistics show that it’s only 2 (approximate) percent effective towards 5 year survival. It’s been known for a very long time that that Oncologists, doctors who recommend cancer treatments, have varied in their willingness to undergo cancer therapies, as illustrated in a study published by the British Journal of Medicine (source) more than a decade ago. In 1985, a survey found that only about one-third of physicians and oncology nurses would have consented to chemotherapy for non-small-cell lung cancer. Today, willingness to undergo cancer treatment by doctors who prescribe it is still lacking, although a decent percentage would undergo treatment, many have still stated that they would not, but there is not much research available since the studies that were conducted many years ago.

These doctors are not alone in their thoughts, as the increase in patients refusing traditional cancer treatment continues to increase. (source) A very recent study showing that approximately 90 percent of doctors would refuse cancer treatment if they were terminally ill, meaning that their disease is perceived as incurable and they were expected to pass away. (source)

As mentioned above, although chemotherapy has saved lives, it’s also done the opposite, and  it has an extremely low success rate. The medical community continues to ignore other available treatments that people are having success with. If we look at these treatments and the statistics for them, we won’t find anything. If a study was done examining the success rate of alternative treatments, it would no doubt, in my opinion, be higher than the success rate of chemotherapy. This type of statistic would absolutely destroy the cancer industry.

The idea that conventional cancer treatment is rarely effective and exists primarily for the benefit of the cancer industry itself is not far fetched. It’s hard on the body, and in many cases cancer stem cells are generated by the therapy itself, which are resistant to conventional therapy. In breast cancer, radiation treatment just drives breast cancer cells into greater malignancy and can make them up to 30 times more malignant. (source)

When it comes to actual cancer research, Ph.d, and two time Nobel Prize winner in chemistry, Linus Pauling said it best when he stated that “everyone should know that most cancer research is largely a fraud, and that the major cancer research organizations are derelict in their duties to the people who support them. (source)

Here is another great quote to get my point across, this time from Ralph Moss, Ph.D., as quoted by John Diamond, M.D., and Lee Cowden, M.D. in Alternative Medicine, in their book: The Definitive Guide To Cancer

The field of U.S. cancer care is organized around a medical monopoly that ensures a continuous flow of money to the pharmaceutical companies, medical technology firms, research institutes, and government agencies such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the National Cancer institute (NCI) and quasi-public organizations such as the American Cancer Society (ACD)

As mentioned earlier, despite the fact that many doctors would refuse conventional treatment, when confronted with a cancer patient they have no choice but to offer it, regardless of their beliefs, which they do not share. Not recommending these treatments could lead to a lawsuit and a loss of medical license. Doesn’t seem quite right does it?

Lorraine Jeanette day is one example out of many, a former orthopaedic trauma surgeon and Chief of Orthopaedic Surgery at San Francisco. She did her research, used alternative treatment and now is a heavy promoter of alternative cancer treatments.

The list goes on and on, whether it’s specific constituents within cannabis, which have shown to annihilate cancer cells for decades, or something else, these treatments have been working for some people, but not all. Just as with chemotherapy, people can pass away by selecting the alternative route. But ask yourself this, if so many other substances, like cannabis, have shown to have tremendous antitumoral properties, why aren’t there any  clinical trials being conducted? When a pharmaceutical drug shows half as much promise, clinical trials are set up right away.

These are few things to thing about when it comes to cancer treatment in general, and despite the constant ridicule by the mainstream medical industry about ‘alternative’ cancer treatments, they do show promise, and I believe, much more promise than chemotherapy. Below is a great video by Kimberly Carter Gamble that illustrates what many people are feeling today.

12 Essential Oils That Can Help Fight Cancer, Boost Immunity and Improve Feelings Of Well-Being.

***Some of the studies cited here are in vivo, others are in vitro. We need to talk more about cancer prevention, and it’s well established in scientific literature that there are certain dietary changed you can make to drastically reduce your chances of contracting cancer. These measures including incorporating more cancer killing organic fruits and vegetables into your diet on a daily basis, exercise, and more. Below is a list of nine essential oils you can also use, but it requires much more and you need to do your research. 

Numerous studies have pointed out how more people are turning towards these methods for cancer prevention and treatment, which is why, although they show promise, much more research is needed to find out more about different cancer, dosages, etc.

Here is a great publication to illustrate what I mean:

Essential Oils and Their Constituents as Anticancer Agent: A Mechanistic View 

Black Pepper

When peper was tested independently, in was shown to exhibit anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anticancer activities in cell studies. Research has also found that pipeline in combination with green tea (polyphenol epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), it increases the bioavailability of EGCG.

According to Joshua Lambert, PhD, Associate Professor of Food Science at Penn State University and lead researcher in the study, they found that when they gave mice EGCG together with pepper, they could increase the amount of compound that got into the blood and into some of the tissues compared to just giving them EGCG alone.They have a study going on right now that AICR funded where they are studying human subjects looking at the same bioavailability markers and they are seeing improved bioavailability in people. (source)

The pepper dose used was 230 mg, just one-eight of a teaspoon of black pepper.

Cinnamon

Dozens of papers have been published outlining cinnamaldehyde’s ability to inhibit tumour cell death and cancer cell apoptosis. This number could be in the hundreds. A simple google search of scholarly articles and publications regarding cinnamon and its anti-cancer properties will make this clear.

Clove

One study points out how “spices, active ingredients of Indian cooking, may play important roles in prevention and treatment of various cancers.” It’s not the only one to do so, and this is well established in scientific literature. Clove oil actually contains up to 30 x more anti-oxidants than blueberries, which helps reduce free radical damage. Another study showed how “clove has different capacity to cause cell death in various cancerous cell lines of human origin.” (source)

Oregano

Oregano extract has been shown to “lead to growth arrest and cell death in a dose- and time-dependent manner” in colon cancer cells. A phytochemical in oregano, carnosol, has also been “evaluated for anti-cancer property in prostate, breast, skin, leukemia, and colon cancer with promising results.” Oregano extract has also been shown to have anti-timor effects on metazoic breast cancer cells lines. (source)(source)

It also provides antioxidants that boost the immune system, and has one of the highest antioxidant activity ratings, with 42 time more than that of an apple .

Cardamom

Here is a good publication that has a section of Cardamom, it outline several health benefits from inhibiting chemical carcinogenesis  to its known antioxidant properties.  It’s also been shown to have anti-cancer properties as well, which is illustrated by multiple studies.  Here is one of them.

Fennel

A plant-based herb whose bulb doubles as a vegetable packed with nutritional value. As an herb, fennel has been used for decades both as a spice in the preparation of various meals and even medicinally as a cure for various ailments. Combined with its use as a vegetable fennel has been linked to help with respiratory disorders, menstrual disorders, colic, indigestion and eye care just to name a few.

One study pointed out how the extract showed “remarkable anticancer potential against a breast cancer cell line and liver cancer cell line. It also showed strong free radical-scavenging activity.” (source)

Another outlines how “compiled data indicate their efficacy in several in vitro and in vivo pharmacological properties such as antimicrobial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, antimutagenic, antinociceptive, antipyretic, antispasmodic, antithrombotic, apoptotic, cardiovascular, chemomodulatory, antitumor, hepatoprotective, hypoglycemic, hypolipidemic, and memory enhancing property.” (source)

Frankincense

Frankincense has been shown to kill bladder, breast, and skin cancer cells.

One study found that:

“Frankincense essential oils prepared by hydrodistillation of gum resins from Boswellia species contain complex chemical constituents and possess anti-cancer activity. Frankincense essential oil activates arrays of genes and pathways that suppress the growth and induce the apoptosis of established human cancer cell lines of different tissue origins. Besides boswellic acids, frankincense essential oil-induced anti-proliferative and pro-apoptotic activities in tumour cells may result from high-molecular-weight compound.”  

Thyme

Wild thyme has been used to induce cell death in breast cancer cells. After 72 hours of treatment, thyme essential oil killed 98 percent of human breast cancer cells, with researchers concluding wild thyme “may be a promising candidate in the development of novel therapeutic drugs for breast cancer treatment.” This is one example of a study where thyme has shown anti-tumoral properties. (source)

Rosemary

Research has shown that rosemary can help prevent cancer and other age-related diseases. It has caffein acid and rosemarinic acid, which are moth powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agents. They help protect the body’s cells from damage by free radicals, as do the the substances mentioned above. It’s also rich in carnosol, which has been found to detoxify substance that can initiate the breast=cancer process. It’s also very rich in vitamin E. (source)

Clary Sage

Clary sage has been shown anticancer effects against breast cancer cells lines, lung cancer cell lines,  and prostate cancer cell lines. (source). It also causes  direct anti-cancer cytotoxicity in subcutaneous tumour bearing mice. (source)

Johnson & Johnson Found To Have Knowingly Allowed Asbestos In Their Baby Powder

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Johnson and Johnson have recently lost lawsuits for negligence in knowingly allowing carcinogenic substances in their talc-based hygiene products.

  • Reflect On:

    Are we starting to turn the page on an era where human health and safety are not the prime considerations in the manufacturing of consumer products?

We are starting to awaken to the fact that it seems to be the rule, and not the exception, that large Western corporations put profits above human health considerations. The only time they seem to give any regard to human health concerns is when their forecasts of potential lawsuits down the road would likely exceed the cost measures needed to ensure the safety of their product.

Johnson & Johnson is just one of a long line of corporate perpetrators who believed that covering up and lying about known health concerns would make better business sense than taking the time and resources to actually address those health concerns within their products.

Contaminated Baby Powder: The Height Of Indignity

One would think, regardless of an understanding that the bottom line is a priority for most private companies, that the health and safety of a nursing mother and her newborn child would be sacrosanct for any industry. The reality is that this is simply not the case, even though J&J could have mitigated this problem from the start.

Companies that mine talc are required to take extra steps to ensure the absence of asbestos in their talc. Instead, J&J allegedly went to great lengths to fake it.

Not only did the company know about the asbestos contamination, evidence suggests, but J&J also failed to warn its customers about the link between Baby Powder and cancer or replace its talc with a safer alternative. As a result, J&J guaranteed its customers’ exposure to asbestos.

And regardless of their size or numbers, asbestos fibers are lethal at any capacity. As the World Health Organization (WHO) has stressed repeatedly, there is no safe level of exposure. (source)

The Testimony of Scientist James Webber

Baby Powder’s contamination with asbestos (a mineral that naturally occurs near talc) has long been the subject of lawsuits. But only in recent years has evidence begun to unravel J&J’s defense – that the company had no idea – and threatened its success in lawsuits to come.

In March, a California jury awarded $29 million to Terry Leavitt, a woman who said that asbestos in Johnson & Johnson’s talcum-powder-based products caused her terminal mesothelioma. Environmental scientist James Webber testified in her high-profile California trial and made these observations:

During several hours on the stand, Webber explained how he ran tests that showed “clear” evidence of asbestos contamination in the mines from which J&J sourced talc.

“The testing I have seen [shows] that it was present at least as early as 1971 and up through the late 1990s,” said Webber, who ran an asbestos laboratory in New York state.

Despite denying it publicly, J&J had observed this contamination in internal memos. Its notes dismissed the amount of asbestos in its talc as “but a trace,” Webber alleged. But that was just an optimistic interpretation of superficial testing, he said: the tests used methods too weak to detect microscopic asbestos fibers. Webber insisted the actual tests results revealed there could be millions of asbestos fibers per gram of talc.

And J&J’s inaccurate reports were allegedly only the tip of the iceberg. In some instances, Webber said, photos attached to J&J’s reports revealed that “they had been seeing it and not reporting it.”  (source)

And It’s Getting Worse

The $29 million verdict, in California Superior Court in Oakland, was the latest defeat for the healthcare conglomerate facing more than 13,000 talc-related lawsuits nationwide. And things may be getting even worse for J&J, according to ZeroHedge:

Johnson & Johnson shares are down over 5% after Bloomberg reports that, according to people with knowledge of the matter, the U.S. Justice Department is pursuing a criminal investigation into whether Johnson & Johnson lied to the public about the possible cancer risks of its talcum powder…

Now, a grand jury in Washington is examining documents related to what company officials knew about any carcinogens in their products, the people said.

The Takeaway

It seems as though corporations have long been willing to take the calculated risk of short-cuts and denials instead of ensuring that their products are safe for public use. My suspicion is that a part of our collective awakening process will be issuing in a new business paradigm in which human health and safety become paramount.

Prescription Infant Formulas Found To Be Contaminated With Aluminum

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Multiple brands of prescription infant formula were found to contain high levels of aluminum.

  • Reflect On:

    Should we be questioning the quality of products that come from pharmaceutical production? Do we veer away from natural methods of raising children more than we should? At what cost?

You may not think aluminum is a big deal, but it is. For anybody who has looked into aluminum toxicology, it’s quite clear and apparent that it has no place inside of any living biological organism. Putting it simply, it wreaks havoc on our biology. High amounts of aluminum have been found in the brains of people with Alzheimer’s disease, with experts in the field believing that aluminum brain accumulation may be one of the main causes of Alzheimer’s disease.

It’s also been discovered within the brains of MS patients, and some of the highest aluminum content ever recorded in brain tissue has also been discovered in people with autism. Aluminum is associated with several diseases. But an adult body can do a great job of flushing out aluminum.

Despite the fact that aluminum has no place within earth’s biota, it’s still present in many of our medications, our food, and even in the water that we drink due to contamination since the industrial revolution. Aluminum inside the body is a new phenomenon and still understudied. Again, there is a threshold, and aluminum that is injected via vaccines doesn’t exit the body–there is strong evidence that it remains inside the body and ends up in distant organs and eventually inside of the brain. If you want to access more studies on that topic, you can read this article I published that provides them and goes into more detail. You can also watch this interview with Christopher Exley, where he also points to that fact.

A new study published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health has shown that multiple popular infant prescriptions are contaminated with aluminum. You may be asking how much aluminum, but the authors make it a point to stress that there are no safe amounts of aluminum levels that can be inside of a human body, let alone a newborn baby. That being said, the amounts found are listed within the abstract of the study:

Historical and recent data demonstrate that off-the-shelf infant formulas are heavily contaminated with aluminium. The origin of this contamination remains to be elucidated though may be imported via ingredients, packaging and processing. Specialised infant formulas exist to address health issues, such as low birth weight, allergy or intolerance and medical conditions, such as renal insufficiency. The aluminium content of these prescription infant formulas is measured here for the first time. We obtained 24 prescription infant formulas through a paediatric clinic and measured their total aluminium content by transversely heated graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometry following microwave assisted acid/peroxide digestion. The aluminium content of ready-to-drink formulas ranged from 49.9 (33.7) to 1956.3 (111.0) μg/L. The most heavily contaminated products were those designed as nutritional supplements for infants struggling to gain weight. The aluminium content of powdered formulas ranged from 0.27 (0.04) to 3.27 (0.19) μg/g. The most heavily contaminated products tended to be those addressing allergies and intolerance. Prescription infant formulas are contaminated with aluminium.

Another very important point made right off the bat by the authors:

Human exposure to aluminium is a serious health concern. Aluminium exposure in infants is understandably a burgeoning issue. While infant exposure to aluminium continues to be documented, its consequences, immediate and in the future, have received only scant attention and research is required to understand the biological availability of aluminium through formula feeding. For example, how much aluminium is absorbed across the neonate gut and its subsequent fate, including excretion.

There is already too much aluminium in infant formulas and herein we have measured its content in a large number of prescription formulas, products which are fed to vulnerable infants in their first months of life. Many of these products are heavily contaminated with aluminium.

As for the specific infant formulas, you can refer to the study. The researchers obtained 24 prescription infant formulas via the Paediatric Clinic of Russells Hall Hospital in Dudley, United Kingdom. The ready-to-drink and powdered products were new, ready-to-be used and unopened samples. These formulas are for babies with some sort of growth restriction, like for preterm infants or infants who have poor weight gain. There were also powdered formulas for allergies and intolerances and powdered formulas with additional amino acids.

The authors contacted each manufacturer and expressed that they denied knowing that there was any aluminum in their products, which means it’s still a mystery as to their source. The authors hypothesize on a number of ways that aluminum could be entering into the formulas.

In their conclusion, the authors emphasize that:

Where possible, breast milk feeding should be prioritised, as the aluminium content of breast milk is invariably an order of magnitude lower than in formula feeds. Where infant formulas are the only source of nutrition for many infants in their first weeks and months of life, aluminium ingested in formula feeds will be the major contributor to their body burden of aluminium. The last thing that vulnerable infants fed specialised formulas for their specific nutritional/medicinal need is additional aluminium in their diet.

Detoxing

There is a lot of information out there on how a person can detox from aluminum and other heavy metals. There are multiple studies, and based on what I’ve looked into, water with high amounts of Silica are effective in draining aluminum out of your body and brain. Herbs like cilantro and substances like chlorella and spirulina are also great for removing some metals. The information is out there, so be sure to do your research.

The Takeaway

It’s concerning to think about what these corporations are doing. Again, aluminum should hold no place in our society, it should’ve remained well below our surface as part of the Earth’s crust for a reason. It wasn’t until humans began digging it out and using it for a number of things, irresponsibly I might add, that we started to see the health implications which still go largely ignored by the medical community.

In fact, heavy metal accumulation and detoxification of aluminum haven’t been addressed at all, which is odd given the fact that heavy metal accumulation is linked to a variety of diseases.

9 Studies You Should Be Aware of Before Trying The Ketogenic Diet

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The Ketogenic diet is a popular fad diet that promotes quick weight loss and symptom management for bodies that are dealing with poor lymph, kidney and digestion health.

  • Reflect On:

    Based on the studies that are emerging, is our desire for quick weight loss more important than living a long and healthy life? Are we learning about these diets primarily through those with strong ties to upholding these diets?

The ketogenic diet has popped up as a popular approach to weight loss in the last few years. Is it successful at that? Sure, it is. I’ve experimented with the diet myself years ago when I was looking to lose some belly fat. I was entering into ketosis in a different way than most, as I was not eating any animal products, but it does in fact work.

But like any animal product based diet, what are the consequences of eating so much food that does not truly jive with our human bodies? Not only that, is fast weight loss more important than keeping our morality rate down?

In the last few years, we’ve reported a lot on the Keto diet and the various ways it can be done. We have explored the studies, the results and in some ways, we supported it. But lately, I have been thinking about how supporting this could actually be encouraging people to jump into these diets, including the paleo diet, when in reality these diets increase mortality rates and are not healthy for the human body.

It became a thought in the back of my mind, I have always strived to put the best information out that I can through this platform to promote good health. And so we must look at that, even if that means upsetting some people who currently are on paleo or keto and are seeing some good weight loss or symptom management. The truth is, like the many people I’ve seen crash on these diets after a few years, I want people to know the truth of what’s going on out there. And how we can get beyond diets that symptom manage, and instead get onto diets that truly heal.

Anytime we have fad diets, which paleo and keto are, we see products and bias pop up all over the place to support the continuation of these trends. It becomes less about health and more about upholding an identity or a business.

So as I recently looked into what experts are saying about these diets, I came upon two important videos I think everyone should check out. Both have been embedded below. Remember, it’s not that I care what you choose in your own life, or that I feel there is a right or wrong, it’s that I believe we should be informed and I wish to use this platform to promote as best a message as I can.
