The media is buzzing with the announcement that a beautiful, full breasted woman like Angelina Jolie took the “courageous” step to have a double mastectomy.
The response to this announcement has been very mixed. Some have labeled her a hero and a role model, while others have called her a puppet and a quack. I am not judging Angelina for her decision. Do I agree with it? No. But I have not walked in her shoes.
Angelina saw her mother die a horrible death from ovarian cancer when she was only 56. That was very traumatic for Angelina. Fear can be a very strong motivating factor, especially if you have not developed trust in methods that are outside the box of allopathic medicine.
Angelina made the best decision possible with the limited information she had.
So the question is: How does the BRCA 1 and BRCA 2 affect a woman’s chances for developing cancer. Read more →
Would you like to hear about a plant based “herbal chemo” that allows your body to kill off cancer cells, is non-toxic and has had an 85% success rate in Stage IV Breast Cancer? Is this for real? Yes it is!!
I first read about this product called Salicinium (Orasal) in Suzanne Somer’s book Knockout, Interviews with Doctors that are Curing Cancer. In Chapter 9 she interviews Dr. James Forsythe, an oncologist who also is board-certified Dr. of Homeopathy. In this book, Dr. Forsythe discusses the amazing success rates he had using an herbal product called Salicinium in conjunction with a liquid complex called Poly-MVA.
Dr. Forsythe conducted a study with 350 patients, all with Stage IV cancers. Breast and Prostate cancer showed an 85% success at 4 years out. Traditional chemotherapy has 2.1% success rate at 5 years out (per the 2004 Journal of Clinical Oncology)
Another study conducted by HST Global, Inc, found a 75% success rate with Stage IV Breast Cancers.
After hours of research on the Internet and several conversations with the companies that produce these products, I am so excited to be able to inform you about these fascinating herbal products. This blog will focus on Salicinium and next week I will discuss the benefits of Poly-MVA.

The media bombards women about “Early Detection” through screenings that involve a visit to the doctor’s office and a mild dose of radiation and compression with a mammogram. What they don’t tell you is that by the time a tumor is seen in the breast, it has been developing for the last 5 – 8 years.
The typical tumor markers that are traditionally recommended for detection of cancers, (CEA, CA 15-3, HER2, etc) are only present in the blood when the tumor is established and growing.
If it were possible for you to detect Breast Cancer (or any cancer for that matter) on a cellular level BEFORE it had established itself as a tumor, would you be interested in this test?
Most women would respond with a resounded YES! Drum roll please….. Read more →
We all recognize that we live in a toxic world. There are some things that we may not have control over, such as the toxins in the air, soil and water. But one thing you DO have control over is what you put IN your body and ON your body.
Essential #2 for Healing and Preventing Breast Cancer Naturally is about Reducing Your Toxic Exposure. There are a multitude of simple steps that you can take to reduce your toxic exposure.
The first step is to READ THE LABELS. If you can’t pronounce it, it’s probably toxic. There are over 10,000 chemicals used in the body care industry and less than 10% of them have been tested for “safety”. Read more →
We have all heard the horrifying stories of cancer patients undergoing surgery to remove a simple tumor and months later the cancer has spread all over their body. The theory is that when you have surgery for removing a cancerous tumor, it causes the cancer to spread like wild fire. Is there any truth to that?
Here are some earth shattering facts about what happens to the body in response to surgical removal of a tumor. Exerts of this are taken from an interview with Suzanne Somers and Bill Faloon in her book Knockout. Bill is the director and co-founder of Life Extension Foundation.
- During the surgical procedure, natural barriers that contain the tumor are breached, enabling cancer cells to escape their original confinement and spread to other parts of the body.
- Surgery induces immune suppression while initiating an inflammatory cascade that provides cancer cells to propagate.
- In response to the trauma, the body secretes growth factors to facilitate the healing. Unfortunately, these same growth factors also stimulate tumor cell growth.
- Cancer spill into the blood stream from the surgical margins and establish metastatic colonies in other parts of the body.
- Cancer cells have a “Velcro like” surface that allows them to stick to each other and the blood vessel walls. In one experiment that mimicked surgical conditions, the sticking and binding of cancer cells to blood vessel walls increased by 250%.
- Surgery reduces the Natural Killer Cell activity. NK cells’ function is to gobble up cancer cells.

Suzanne Somers refused chemotherapy when she was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. She did agree to radiation therapy, which she later regrets having done. Ten years after her Breast Cancer diagnosis, she was misdiagnosed by 6 physicians as having “whole body cancer”.
A severe allergic reaction in the middle of the night brought her to an ER close to her home. They ran a CT scan and 6 different doctors told her she had cancer spread all over her body, including her lungs, liver and abdomen. They basically gave her the death sentence and insisted on chemotherapy right away.

Is Marijuana finally making a healthy name for itself? Throughout history, marijuana has been known as one of the most medicinal plants in the world. Because of the medicinal qualities of the hemp plant, many large pharmaceutical companies that still exist today, sold hemp based medicines in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. Maybe the drug companies actually cared about getting people well back then????
Recently a pair of research scientists in San Francisco have complied reliable data that a particular substance from the hemp plant, called cannabidiol, may actually heal cancer. This extract is not related at all to the THC that makes you high. It is non-toxic and has many promising medicinal qualities. Read more →
It drives me crazy when I hear oncologists and medical physicians saying that there is no connection with sugar consumption and cancer.
The very technology that they use to detect cancer in various parts on the body, is based on the premise that cancer LOVES sugar. A PET scan (Positron Emission Tomography) takes advantage of the cancer cells voracious appetite for sugar and helps to determine the extent of the cancer in the body. Before a PET scan, the patient is injected with a radioactive sugar solution. Since cancer has 46 insulin receptor sites compared to 2 on a healthy cell, the cancer cells gobble up the radioactive sugar solution first. The end result is an image with little light bulbs glowing in areas of the body that are afflicted with cancer cells. Read more →
As I spend hours researching and compiling science – based evidence that Breast Cancer (or all cancers for that matter) can be cured, I stand in awe of how simple the solutions are. If only those billions of dollars of “cancer cure research” were spent on proving the efficacy of healthy and harmless therapies, millions of lives could be saved every year.
Compared to the Asian cultures, Western society is not inclined to incorporating sea weed in their daily diet. When I was introduced to the Macrobiotic lifestyle in the late 70’s, I was amazed at how versatile and tasty sea weeds actually were. There are many types of sea weeds and many tasty ways to enjoy them. (Check my Delectable Dish Raw Nori Rolls.) Read more →
When Male Breast Cancer is mentioned in a predominantly male audience, I can see the men squirm in their seats. For one thing, men don’t usually think about their “chest and pecs” as breast tissue. Well, sorry guys…it is very similar but simply not as developed. Secondly, the possibility of developing Breast Cancer is usually the farthest thing from a man’s mind.
According to the American Cancer Society, the incidence of Male Breast Cancer is increasing. Although it is considered “rare” for men to develop Breast Cancer, over 400 men die each year because of it. Think of those 400 families and communities that have been affected by this loss. It may be considered “rare” from a statistical point of view, but the reality is that it is a growing concern for men. The impression that male breast cancer has a worse prognosis stems from the tendency toward being diagnosed at later stages, often times because of lack of awareness. Read more →
