Juicing = Longevity

Juicing For Thriving In a Toxic World

vegetable juice

We need around (6-8 servings!) of vegetables and fruit every day. Eating cooked vegetables doesn’t fully count as typically many nutrients are lost during the preparation and cooking process. Fruit in general contains high amount of fructose and we need to be careful and limit the intake.  This all means we need to consume a tons of vegetables, which may not be an easy task especially if you live a busy life or don’t particularly fancy eating them.

That’s why juicing tends to be the easiest way to reach our daily requirement.

Juicing also helps us better absorb the nutrients from the vegetables as well as using a wider variety of vegetables than we would typically eat.

When you drink freshly made green juice, it is almost like receiving an intravenous infusion of vitamins, minerals and enzymes because they go straight into your system without having to be broken down. When your body has an abundance of the nutrients it needs you will feel energized and your immune system will get a boost.

Green vegetable juicing ensures enough nutrients for optimal health, including about 300 mg of potassium per glass. By removing the fiber we are able to consume large volume of natural potassium.

  • For juicing beginners (those in good health) it is acceptable to include both fruits and vegetables otherwise it may become difficult to get used to green juicing. Juicing fruits is somewhat controversial due to high amounts of fructose that can be harmful especially if you are overweight, have high blood pressure etc.
  • Organic vegetables and fruits are free of pesticides and our best choice.
  • If you don’t have a juicer please consider getting one, it is one of the best investments for your health and if you are sick it may as well save your life!
  • You don’t need a fancy and super expensive one, but you do need a good quality and strong juicer (at last 700W) to be able to get the full benefit and also juice leafy vegetables, wheatgrass etc.  I have a Samson and pretty happy with its performance. Alternatively you can use blender, add some water and pass the mixture through a fine-mesh strainer.
  • If you are new to juicing, take it easy and mix it with some fruits at the beginning. Take couple of “lighter” taste  vegetables (e.g. cucumber (peel it), fennel, carrot or spinach) and add lemon, lime, apple or ginger to improve taste.  A great recipe for beginners is a “Miracle Drink” – juice from apples, beet root (with leaves) and carrots.  It’s a powerful detox, immune system booster, great for eyesight, low hemoglobin, anemia, leukemia and cancer.

  • When you get used to juicing, shift slowly towards more vegetables and less sweet fruits. Lime and lemons will always stay a great addition even for “hard core nutrition connoisseurs” as they contain limited amount of fructose.

16 Natural Cancer Cures, Remedies and Protocols

There are countless examples of people who got up from their deathbed and recovered from terminal cancer.

Although it is far easier to prevent cancer than to reverse it, it is nevertheless possible with a universal, holistic approach that addresses imbalances of the body, mind and spirit.

Reading though the stories of many cancer survivors you will see that they have not taken cancer as something terrible and dreadful that takes away everything from them, but as an opportunity for change, for standing up for themselves and who they truly are.

Therefore it appears that there is no treatment, doctor or procedure that can help without individual’s strong belief in recovery.

This is also one of the reasons why one therapy works in one case and it doesn’t work in a similar case.

I gathered in this article some of strategies and alternative therapies that are known for their efficacy.   I list them in 6 groups:

      1. Radical Diet Change Protocols For Reversing Cancer
      2. Psychotherapy/Energy/Spiritual Work
      3. Well-Being Essentials
      4. Toxins Elimination
      5. Intensive Detox
      6. Geopathic Stress

1. Radical Diet Change and Detox Protocols for Reversing Cancer.

What is most noticeable with all cancer survivors is that they have undertaken an extreme diet change.

These some of the alternative cancer cures and protocols along with cancer fighting foods and supplements I would be looking into before undergoing any conventional treatment.

The protocols listed below are sometimes calling for opposites, that’s why one need to explore different strategies to find one that works best. There is no one treatment or diet protocol that works in every case even for the same type of cancer.

1. Dr. Gerson’s Juicing Therapy.

This juice fasting therapy works by saturating the body with nutrients from organically grown fruits and vegetables.

The fresh raw juice is taken up to 13 times per day, one glass every hour.  Raw and cooked solid foods are generously consumed. This way the sodium from the cells is decreased and potassium increased.

Dr. Max Gerson: A Cancer Therapy: Results of Fifty Cases and the Cure of Advanced Cancer.

2. Budwig Diet Protocol.

“Dr. Budwig’s diet and protocol is based upon flaxseed oil plus cottage cheese and flaxseed, complemented by fruit and vegetable based organic nutrition, sunlight, natural living, and emotional and spiritual healing”.

The basic recipe and more info can be found here

3. Dr. Schulze’s “There are No Incurable Diseases” Program  

This is probably the most radical of all detox and cancer healing programs I have seen.  It consists of fresh juicing, alternating 5-Day Liver/Gallbladder cleanses with 5-Day Kidney/Bladder cleanses  and combined with hydrotherapy and “cold-sheet”, massage/bodywork, castor oil packs etc. Here you can read Dr. Schulze’s web-based book: There are No Incurable Diseases

4. Ketogenic Diet.

Cancer cell thrives on sugar and can’t survive without it. Ketogenic diet is based on starving the cancer cells by depriving them of their food source.

More info can be found in this article Ketogenic Diet With Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.

5. Oxygen Therapy.

It is proven that cancer cells cease to grow in presence of oxygen.  Dr. Otto Warburg was actually given a Nobel Prize over 75 years ago for this discovery.

Ozone (activated oxygen) is used therapeutically by means of drinking ozonated water and using ozone saunas.

Hospitals in Mexico, Malaysia, Cuba, Russia, Europe (Germany, Italy, UK) etc. administer intravenous ozone infusions with success. For more info visit http://www.ozonehospital.com and http://www.oxygenhealth.com

6. Rick Simpson’s Hemp Oil.

Rick Simpson began his journey ten years ago to tell others that cannabis oil can cure cancer. Rick has healed over 5000 people personally with the hemp oil and many others all over the world heard his story and have been healed.

For more info visit this link  and watch a video.   

7. Dr. Kuhl’s Lactic Acid Protocol.

Dr. Kuhl’s protocol is based on removal of surplus of toxic lactic acid stores from cells by taking the lactic-acid-fermented foods: yoghurts both made from dairy and nut milks, kombucha, sauerkraut, kimchi, other fermented (“cultured”) vegetables and their juices, sourdough bread, miso…

For cancer patients the lactic-acid-fermented natural unprocessed foods should be about half of total food intake, according to dr. Kuhl.

The details about the protocol can be found by following this link.

8. Father Zago’s Aloe Treatment for Cancer.

Father Romano Zago is a Franciscan friar, who discovered the healing power of the aloe, used by poor people in Israel to treat cancer and other diseases.

More info can be found here.

9. Turmeric (Curcuma).

Turmeric has been shown to suppress tumor initiation, promotion and metastasis.

Curcumin works by changing the DNA instruction to help kill cancer. It modulates genetic activity and expression—both by destroying cancer cells, and by promoting healthy cell function.

To get the full benefits curcumin has to offer, look for a 100% certified organic turmeric.

According to Dr. William LaValley (cited by Dr. Mercola) typical anticancer doses are up to three grams of good bioavailable curcumin extract, three to four times daily.

There are few strategies that help increasing absorption of curcuma spice.  Adding the black pepper is one of them;  please read the full article Benefits of Curcumin Enhanced by Black Pepper.

Dr. Mercola’s is also suggesting some other techniques of increasing absorption, see  Super Spice Secrets.

10. Dr. Simoncini’s Sodium Bicarbonate Protocol.

Dr. Simoncini believes cancer is caused by a fungus, namely Candida Albicans. He has been developing techniques aimed at eradicating the fungus by using the sodium bicarbonate. Whilst experts may disagree on whether the cancer is caused by fungus or not, the application of Sodium Bicarbonate seems to be successful.

You can find the contact, information and details about the protocol here.

11. Bio Propolis from New Zeeland.

Obtained from manuka flowers from New Zeeland, the bio propolis has shown in trials that it could reduce the formation of tumour cells.

I suggest buying it directly from New Zeeland at http://manukahealth.co.nz.  We ordered it few times and it arrived to Belgium safely and relatively fast.

12. Graviola Fruit.

Graviola is sort of tropical fruit also known as “sour sop”.

The extracts from graviola can kill some types of liver and breast cancer cells that are resistant to particular chemotherapy drugs.

Whilst the fruit itself is hard to find, you can probably find the graviola juice at your health store.

Learn more about it by following this link.

13. Anti-Angiogenic Food Therapy.

The Anti-Angiogenic therapy works by preventing the growth of blood vessels that feed a tumor (anti-angiogenesis).

According to dr. William Li, resveratrol from red grapes, ellagic acid found in strawberries and other anti-angiogenic foods like green tea, berries (strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries), cherries, turmeric, parsley, garlic, maitake mushroom, artichokes and nutmeg help preventing the growth of blood vessels thus cutting the blood supply that feeds tumors.

14. B-17 (Leatrile) Therapy.

Laetrile (B-17) is the anti-tumour agent, naturally found in over 1,200 plants, particularly in the seeds of fruits such as apricots, peaches, bitter almonds, plums and apples.

B-17 selectively targets and destroys cancer cells while healthy cells remain unharmed. B-17 is either administered intravenously or taken as oral supplement.

Four decades of clinical evidence attest to efficiency of Leatrile Therapy. Some hospitals in Mexico and Europe administer intravenous laetrile; however this therapy is illegal in the US.

Read more about the treatment here.

15. Artemisinin

Artemisinin is a chemical derived from the Wormwood or Mugwort plant (Artemesia annua). Artemisinin has proved to be very effective against 55 cancers including lymphoma, brain cancer, liver cancer, colon cancer, pancreatic cancer, melanomas. lung cancer etc.

Taking artemisinin alone against one instance of breast cancer caused the breast cancer to shrink by 28% within 16 hours. When the protocol was further reinforced by taking ordinary iron supplement tablets as well, 98% percent remission of the breast cancer occurred. In another piece of research, a leukemia patient experienced 100% remission within 8 hours a person after taking artemisinin/iron supplement. Be careful to obtain pure high quality 100% artemisinin supplement (the plant extract only contains 0.3% to 0.5% artemisinin which is not enough).

16. Ginger

A study from 2015 reveals that ginger contains a pungent compound that could be up to 10,000 times more effective than conventional chemotherapy in targeting the cancer stem cells at the root of cancer malignancy. Source

Note that ginger needs to be consumed either dried or cooked.

2. Psychotherapy/Energy/Spiritual Work.

  • Psychotherapy/Energy/Spiritual Work to heal   emotionally emerges in fact as number one on the road to healing from cancer.

Understanding the real cause of the cancer is of utmost importance. Some of the causes can be: emotional trauma, continued exposure to stress, environmental and food toxicity, poor diet, negative thoughts and mind toxicity, unresolved family situation and often a combination of some of these is either a trigger or contributing factor.

Dr. Hamer for example suggests that when we have an unresolved conflict, the emotional reflex center in the brain that corresponds to the experienced emotion (e.g. anger, frustration, grief) will slowly break down.

Each of these emotion centers are connected to a specific organ. When a center breaks down, it starts sending wrong information to the organ it controls, resulting in the formation of cancer cells.

For example cancer of the left breast indicates unresolved conflict concerning child, home or mother. Read more at  http://www.alternative-cancer-care.com/dr-ryke-geerd-hamer.html

I suggest also a good and informative reading about “Cancer Personality” based on the findings from W. Douglas Brodie who describes  certain personality traits present in the cancer-susceptible individuals.

Cancer Is Not A Disease, It’s a Survival Mechanism is a very good book by Andreas Moritz where he proposes that cancer is a healing process that we ought to support, not suppress or fight.

  • Dramatic lifestyle change is essential on the road to get well. Many if not all cancer survivors made some radical changes to their way of living: they either left the unhappy marriage, quit their job and/or moved to other countries.

You can find a myriad of survivors’ stories documenting this statement like for example:  Life After Breast Cancer Three Survivors Stories.

3. Well-Being Essentials.

See Well-Being Essentials for more info on importance of

4. Toxins Elimination.

While as “preventative” measure “reduce to minimum” is acceptable, when the disease strikes we need to go for a complete avoidance. I mention the key groups of toxins that need to be eliminated in Say No to Toxins

5. Intensive Detox.

Radical detox is inevitable part of every cancer healing protocol.  Detox strategies include: fasting, cleansing of liver, gall bladder, colon, kidney, intestinal parasite, heavy metal; dental cleansing etc.

It has been proven beneficial to begin a healing treatment with liver, colon and kidneys cleansing.

There are many effective cleansing procedures that can be found at health food stores, or through a holistic healer; a good very good source on how to do a radical detox can be found at Detoxification to Support the Healing and Prevention of Cancer and Other illnesses. 

6. Geopathic Stress.

This term relates to the harmful energies emitted from the earth or manmade that interfere with the healthy functioning of cell metabolism in our body.

Geopathic stress either occurs from natural sources (underground waters, earth grids, earth fractures etc) or is man-made: cell phones, computers, power lines, etc.

The fastest approach to minimizing it is to hire a professional to identify the geopatic stress sources and make the recommendations.
