--Dr. Mark Sircus
Alternative Cancer Treatments

1979 Around January of that year, I went home to die.   ..cont. 
I was diagnosed with stage 2 stomach cancer, chronic bronchitis, acutely infected ovarian cysts, arthritis, sciatica, low thyroid, anemia and a heart condition. Besides that I had chronic ear infections and long-standing clinical depression. The late Dr. Harold Dick, N.D., known as a "naturopathic oncology pioneer" cured me in 5 weeks. It required the diagnosis (the Carroll Food Test) of digestive enzyme deficiency food intolerances which most people have and few know about, and it also identified the primary tissue salt deficiency, along with treatment with glandular protomorphogens to restore glandular health, and Constitutional Hydrotherapy to bring about detoxification, to stimulate blood circulation and the activity of the vital organs and to jump-start the immune system. It turned out to be the basic foundation of the most successful healing system I've ever witnessed.
1986 My 5-year-old daughter was forcibly vaccinated and immediately developed a flesh-eating infection so virulent that my husband and I became infected from contact. Naturopathic medicine brought us back from the brink.
Later that year we were introduced to escharotic cancer salves and treated a dog tumor, my husband's cirrhosis of the liver, various skin lesions, moles, fungal infections, and a lump in my thigh. It eventually helped clear up the remaining symptoms from my husband's flesh-eating infection after he was forced to submit to antibiotic treatment which made a mess of it. There was much more, gallbladder problems in 1999, adrenal deficiency 2001, injury in 2002, arthritis, diabetes, and other issues between 2003-2012, including glaucoma--cured.

This is why I research and write about alternative medicine. It's a debt.

Arterial Plaque (research)

Fish Oil Slows Progression of Plaque Buildup in Arteries
For the first time, studies revealed that postmenopausal women who ate one or more servings of tuna or dark fish could slow down the progression of narrowing of the arteries, otherwise known as arteriosclerosis.

The Deteriorating Impact of Arteriosclerosis

Simply stated, arteriosclerosis is the buildup of plaque in the arteries. If the plaque grows large enough, it could dramatically cut down the capability of blood flow. One of the most dangerous results of arteriosclerosis happens when a blood clot forms from the plaque rupturing, which then breaks off and travels to a different part of the body.

If a blood vessel that feeds the heart is blocked, the result is a heart attack. On the other hand if a blood vessel that feeds the brain is blocked, the result is a stroke. As heart disease worsens, arteries begin to clog, which causes a reduction in the blood flow to the heart.

A study of women was designed to evaluate the consumption of fish and atherosclerosis. The study consisted of the women receiving three coronary angiographies, an X-ray of the blood vessels of the heart. One test was taken at the onset of the study and the second test was given three years after completion of the study.

The purpose of the tests was to find out if there was any change in the diameter of the coronary arteries and any signs of coronary lesions.
Eat Your Way to a Healthier Heart With Omega-3 Fatty Acids
The women who included fish at least once a week into their diet were shown to have lesser lesions in their arteries than the women who ate fish less frequently. Even more significant were the findings revealing that women with diabetes who consumed fish more than once a week displayed a 60 percent less narrowing of the arteries than the women who ate less than two servings of fish each week.

These findings were an indication of how fish could slow down the progression of coronary artery disease. The secret to these heart healthy benefits are the high amounts of omega-3 fatty acids found in fish. Canned tuna and salmon, both high in omega-3 fatty acids, were ranked as two of the most frequently eaten fish in the U.S.

Results from the study showed that the women who ate one or more servings of tuna or dark fish every week had less significant changes in the diameter of their coronary arteries than women who ate different kinds of fish. Researchers attributed these findings to the higher omega-3 levels found in dark fish.

These findings motivated the American Dietetic Association to make the following recommendations:
• Eat at least two servings of fish each week
• Eat fatty fish such as canned tuna
American Journal of Clinical Nutrition September 2004 Vol. 80, No. 3, 626-632

Dr. Mercola's Comment:
As I have written in the past, taking plenty of fish oil, which is rich in omega-3, is known to cut the risk of heart disease and death. Now researchers have found that eating fish significantly reduces the progression of coronary artery atherosclerosis (the build-up of plaques in the arteries) among women who already have coronary artery disease.
So not only is the omega-3 in fish useful for preventing heart disease, but it appears to slow the progression of it as well. It's important to mention that I don't recommend eating fish due to all of the contamination concerns.

Additionally, after we completed extensive testing on fish from a company that takes the salmon from the interior of Alaska, we were surprised and delighted to find that the mercury levels were virtually undetectable.

If you enjoy the delicious taste and immense health benefits of some of the world's finest salmon -- Alaskan wild red -- but you are concerned about the mercury now found in dangerous amounts in almost all fish, then please consider trying the Alaskan wild red salmon from Vital Choice that tested safe and that I now carry.

Omega-3 is essential to the human body, however the diets of most Americans are dangerously low in omega-3. As a matter of fact, researchers believe that about 60 percent of Americans are deficient in Omega-3 fatty acids, and 20 percent have so little that test methods cannot even detect any in their blood.

For these reasons, I recommend, above almost any other addition to everyone's diet, fish oil and cod liver oil. I have researched and tried many fish oil brands but only carry Carlson's brand fish oil and cod liver oil as I have found it to be the most superior available. It is purified to the highest standards to be free from mercury and other toxins and is made without chemical modification and processing. Now is the time of year when most people living in the US will want to finish up their fish oil and switch to cod liver oil. The BEST way to know when to switch is to actually measure your vitamin D level. This test can be done in any doctor's office.

My experience is that most people I see do not obtain enough sun exposure and benefit from taking cod liver oil year round. However, there are clearly a fair number of people (primarily those reading this newsletter) who have obtained healthy vitamin D levels by either consuming cod liver oil, or better yet, getting great sun exposure. Many of these people should not shift to cod liver oil till late October or November. So, again, if at all possible, I would strongly encourage you to get your vitamin D level tested as that is the safest way to know when to switch.

Vitamin K2 (MK-7): The Pinnacle of Bone and Heart Health

Vitamin K2

Vitamin K is absolutely essential to build strong bones -- and it is proven to prevent heart disease. For several years, compelling evidence has shown that most people don't get enough vitamin K to protect their health through the foods they eat.

Green leafy vegetables supply almost half of the vitamin K for the majority of Americans. Most foods considered rich in vitamin K have shown to have less vitamin K than previously thought. Despite this vital information, the majority of multi-vitamins don't contain any vitamin K at all -- and those that do don't contain enough.

Recent research supporting vitamin K's usefulness against osteoporosis and heart disease is now becoming too abundant to overlook. Still, few health conscious consumers understand the importance of supplementing vitamin K. For this reason, I now offer the most potent disease fighting form of this vitamin available -- Vitamin K2 -- in supplemental form.
Vitamin K2 is a newly available extract of natto that provides the highly bioavailable form of vitamin K2 as menaquinone MK-7. This exclusive patented formula of Vitamin K2 is only available on-line here at Mercola.com. You won't find it commercially anywhere else on the Internet in the US.

Vastly superior to other forms of vitamin K, non-toxic vitamin K2 offers many critical health-promoting advantages, including:
• Prevention of bone loss and fractures -- more effective than vitamin K1, studies link vitamin K2 to the production of the calcium-binding protein osteocalcin -- responsible for redirecting lost calcium back to bone.

• Better absorption rate -- unlike vitamin K1, vitamin K2 does not concentrate in the liver. The body stores only limited amounts of vitamin K in the liver, so vitamin rich foods must be consumed regularly, and with only 10% absorption of vitamin K1 from vegetables -- you are receiving only pennies on the dollars. Vitamin K2 works primarily outside of the liver in the bone and blood vessels.

• Prevention of atherosclerosis -- vitamin K2 suppresses the progress of atherosclerotic plaques, intima (the inner lining of an artery or vein or lymphatic vessel) thickening and pulmonary atherosclerosis.

• Inhibiting cancer cell growth -- a study published in the September 2003 International Journal of Oncology found that treating lung cancer patients with vitamin K2 slowed the growth of cancer cells, and previous studies have shown benefit in treating leukemia.

This uniquely branded powerful form of vitamin K2 is poised to revolutionize the market for bone health and heart health supplements.

Vitamin K -- the Future of Disease Prevention

Vitamin K is unique because it acts like a hormone, but shows no toxicity. With research now focusing on its potential effects on the brain, liver and pancreas, vitamin K is one of the most promising vitamins of our time.

In 1929, Danish scientist, Dr. Henrik Dam discovered vitamin K. The "K" is for Koagulation -- essential for proper blood clotting. Sometimes referred to as "the forgotten vitamin," the many other benefits of vitamin K are often overlooked.

Vitamin K plays a crucial role in many bodily functions. It may be a key anti-aging vitamin -- it's a stronger antioxidant than vitamin E or coenzyme Q10. Japanese researchers found that vitamin K deficiency can have effects similar to diabetes. And now, scientists are even looking at vitamin K to be the future of treating certain kinds of cancer and Alzheimer's disease.

Considering the importance of this vitamin, it's reasonable to question if you're getting enough. Vitamin K exists in three forms, K1, K2, and K3. All are fat-soluble. This is important because dietary fat is necessary for the absorption of the vitamin -meaning that in order for your body to absorb it effectively, you need to eat some fat along with it.

Vitamin K1, or phylloquinone, is found naturally in plants. Vitamin K2, also called menaquinone, is made by the bacteria that line the gastrointestinal tract. Vitamin K3, or menadione (that I do not recommend) is manmade and is generally regarded as toxic because it generates free radicals. It's important to note that toxicity has occurred in infants given synthetic vitamin K3 by injection.

The richest natural source of vitamin K2 is derived from an ancient Japanese medicinal food called Natto. Natto is made from fermented soybeans and significant amounts of vitamin K2 are produced during the fermentation process.

Fermented foods, such as natto, typically have the highest concentration of vitamin K found in the human diet and can provide several milligrams of vitamin K2 on a daily basis. This level far exceeds the amount found in dark green vegetables.

Since most Americans do not eat traditionally fermented foods like natto, adding them to your diet is a must as the health benefits are tremendous. It has also been reported that the sticky part of natto contains polyglutamin acid -- an acid that aids the absorption of calcium from the intestine.

SAFELY Boost Bone Health and Prevent Osteoporosis with K2
The incidence of osteoporosis continues to increase dramatically, affecting an estimated 10 million Americans over the age of 50 years old -- with 32.9 million afflicted with low bone mass, placing them at an increased risk for developing this condition. Additionally, close to 1.2 million bone fractures in the United States each year are related to osteoporosis.

For early prevention of postmenopausal and age-related bone loss, nutritional interventions should be the first choice as they are the least toxic and least expensive option. While other nutrients are important for maintaining high bone densities, there is increasing evidence indicating a significant role for vitamin K in bone metabolism and osteoporosis.
It is very rare where a drug-based solution to a chronic degenerative health condition is the answer. However, many doctors prescribe oral drugs called bisphosphonates to treat osteoporosis.

Bisphosphonates are a family of non-hormonal drugs used to prevent and treat osteoporosis. There are many bisphosphonates currently in clinical use, including alendronate (Fosamax) and etidronate (Didronel).
Unfortunately, most doctors don't have any clue that these biphosphanate drugs are toxic poisons that contain the same type of chemicals that are used to remove soap scum from your bathtub. These drugs can have drawbacks including gastrointestinal intolerance and poor absorption by the gastrointestinal tract.

They work by killing osteoclasts in the bone that are responsible for remodeling the bone. The theory is that if you can prevent bone loss you will have stronger bone.

Unfortunately, the theory doesn't hold up. The osteoclasts are metabolically poisoned (killed) and the bone does become denser. The denser bone does not translate to stronger bone. Although the bone is denser it is actually more brittle and more susceptible to fracture.
While biphosphonate drugs work through osteoclasts that remove bone, vitamin K has been linked to osteoblasts, the cells that generate or "lay down" bone and produce a specific protein known as osteocalcin.
It was found that the protein osteocalcin acts as a kind of glue that helps to incorporate calcium into the bones, and vitamin K2 is necessary in order to produce this protein.

Research shows that vitamin K regulates calcium and keeps it in the bones and out of arteries -- stopping heart attack and osteoporosis at the same time. Vitamin K seems to do the impossible accommodating the needs of both bones and arteries.

Vitamin K works through an amino acid called "Gla," which stands for gamma carboxyglutamic acid. Gla is part of a certain kind of protein that controls calcium. Researchers believe there are at least one hundred of these proteins scattered throughout the body. Vitamin K is the only vitamin that makes these proteins work.

Vitamin K achieves a process on the proteins called "carboxylation." Carboxylation gives the proteins claws so they can hold onto calcium. Once the protein grabs onto calcium -- it can be moved.
Proteins that don't get enough vitamin K can't hold on to calcium. Without a functioning protein to control it, calcium drifts out of bone and into arteries and other soft tissue. Vitamin K2 gently redirects the "lost" calcium back to the bone bank.

One ground breaking study observed the change in circulating vitamin K2 (MK-7) and Gla osteocalcin concentrations in normal individuals with the intake of natto. Volunteers were divided into three groups. One group received regular natto, while the other two groups were given natto reinforced with two varying concentrations of MK-7.

Serum MK-7 and gamma-carboxylated osteocalcin concentrations were significantly raised 7, 10, and 14 days after the start of the intake of reinforced natto. However, serum gamma-carboxylated osteocalcin levels were not significantly elevated by the intake of regular natto, although serum-MK-7 levels were significantly raised.

The findings suggest that the intake of MK-7 of less than an appropriate amount may not cause any significant elevation of serum gamma-carboxylated osteocalcin in the bone matrix. The intake of reinforced natto, which contains more MK-7 than regular natto, may contribute in the prevention of age related bone loss.

Vitamin K2: The Missing Link to Maintaining Vascular Health
Vitamin K helps to prevent hardening of the arteries, a common factor in coronary artery disease and heart failure. Arteries in children are very flexible and stretch with sporadic increases in blood pressures but return to their initial form after the stress. This ability of the artery to stretch and "bounce back into shape" is called compliance.

As we age, arteries become stiff and hard -- resembling the mineral deposits in old water pipes. Our vessels thicken with calcium and other oxidized fats gradually narrowing the channels and restricting blood flow.
The increased pressure on the narrowing openness creates a "back pressure" which increases our blood pressure and the work of the heart. Eventually, the heart tires from the increased work and begins to fail -- causing "congestive heart failure."

The drug warfarin is currently the best treatment for patients at risk from blood clots. Although scientists know it inhibits the action of vitamin K by targeting the protein, thinning the blood and preventing the formation of life threatening blood clots, they do not understand how this happens. Pinpointing the gene will help scientists understand the link between the protein and vitamin K.

Scientists from the MRC's Clinical Sciences Centre at Imperial College in London, and research institutions in Germany, identified the gene that controls the production of a protein essential for the action of vitamin K, which is necessary for the formation of a clot. Their findings are reported in Nature.

The research team studied the genes of warfarin (coumadin) resistant rats and patients, comparing them with the genes of families with an inherited disorder in handling vitamin K that prevents them from forming clots properly. A mutation was found in the same gene in all three groups. This mutation identified the gene that, under normal genetic circumstances, controls the production of the protein responsible for the action of vitamin K.

Pinpointing the target of warfarin will help to find out more about how vitamin K works, leading to the development of more effective blood thinning treatments for all those at risk from blood clots.
Vitamin K2 supplementation is one way of insuring that arteries and bones receive sufficient amounts of vitamin K2 to prevent cardiovascular disease. In the Rotterdam study, clinical analysis of 4,500 patients showed a correlation between long-term vitamin K2 (menaquinone-7) intake and the lower incidence of aortic calcification. For vitamin K1 the observed associations were weaker, suggesting preferential uptake of K2 by the blood vessel wall.

The beneficial effect of vitamin K2 is related to the carboxylation of matrix-Gla Protein. Arteries without atherosclerosis have 20-50 fold increases in vitamin K2 concentration than arteries with plaque in the same human body. Arteries were found to be more flexible and elastic than other arteries without vitamin K2.

With more than 4,000 participants, those with the highest K2 consumption had 50 percent fewer heart attacks, 50 percent fewer CV-related deaths and 25 percent fewer deaths overall. While more research is needed, early findings suggest that by regulating calcium, vitamin K2 reduces the risk of arteriosclerosis.

Breakthrough Research Confirms Vitamin K2 Inhibits Cancer
A flood of new studies suggests that vitamin K may help combat cancer. Preliminary reports suggest that vitamin K may one day be used to manipulate cancer cells to stop their dangerous, unregulated growth.
Vitamin K2 has been shown to encourage the suicide of pancreatic and ovarian cancer cells. A study published in the September 2003 International Journal of Oncology, found that treating lung cancer patients with vitamin K2 slowed the growth of cancer cells, and previous studies have shown benefit in treating leukemia.

According to a new study published in the July 21 issue of Journal of the American Medical Association, vitamin K2 may deter the development of hepatocellular carcinoma (cancer that arises from hepatocytes, the major cell type of the liver) in women with viral cirrhosis of the liver.

In the study, 40 women diagnosed with viral liver cirrhosis were admitted to a university hospital between 1996 and 1998 and randomized to a treatment or control group. The treatment group received 45 mg/d of vitamin K2. Hepatocellular carcinoma was identified in two of the 21 women given vitamin K2 and nine of the 19 women in the control group.
Scientists concluded there is a possible role for vitamin K2 in the prevention of hepatocellular carcinoma in women with viral cirrhosis. Despite its small size, the study indicated that vitamin K2 decreases the risk of hepatocellular carcinoma to about 20% compared with the control group, suggesting that vitamin K2 may delay the onset of hepatocarcinogenesis.

The results of the trial support previous research indicating vitamin K2 may play a role in controlling cancer cell growth.
Do I Need Vitamin K2?

If you or your family has a history of osteoporosis or heart disease, I strongly advise you to add vitamin K2 supplements to your diet. You will also want to seriously consider adding vitamin K2 to your diet if you suffer from any of the following conditions that can set the stage for vitamin K deficiency:

• a poor or restricted diet

• Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, or other ailments that interfere with nutrient absorption

• liver disease that interferes with vitamin K storage

• if you are taking certain drugs including broad spectrum antibiotics, cholesterol lowering agents and aspirin

Vitamin K2 Usage and Dosage Information

To experience benefits for bone and vascular health, 100 micrograms per day of supplemental Vitamin K2 is suggested.

CAUTION: Vitamin K2 may counteract the effects of anticoagulation therapy, and therefore is not recommended for patients on blood-thinning medications. To prevent potential interference with oral anticoagulants such as coumadin (warfarin), you should not exceed a daily dose of 100 micrograms.

Those who have experienced stroke, cardiac arrest, and those prone to blood clotting should not take Vitamin K2 without first consulting their physician.

Pregnant and nursing mothers should avoid Vitamin K supplemental intakes higher than the RDA (65 mcg) unless specifically recommended and monitored by their physician.

Most products containing vitamin K2 available today contain less than the recommended daily dosage. However, just one capsule of Vitamin K2 (meanquinone-7) contains the recommended daily dosage of 100 micrograms. Plus, Vitamin K2 is Non-GMO certified -- meaning it contains no genetically modified organisms.

A Common Spice/Herb
That Can Save Your Life
Dr David Williams published in his newsletter Alternative (For the Health Conscious Individual) (Vol. 7, No. 12) June, 1998 the most interesting piece of information to come down the pike in years.

Chelation therapy has been used by conventional medicine to pull lead from people suffering from lead poisoning. Chelation (a Greek term meaning "claws," for it was thought that the chelator "grabbed" the metals from the blood and arteries) therapy is administered intravenously using the chemical agent EDTA. Today scientists know that the grabbing that takes place is simply a metaphor for biochemical reaction when a "chelator" contacts a heavy metal.

From the successes of cleaning up toxic amounts of lead from patients, some doctors experimented with EDTA Chelation therapy to remove mercury and aluminum (associated with Alzheimer's disease; and get this; aluminum works with fluoride; fluoride slips through the blood-brain barrier). Now the interesting thing to come from these studies was that patients with cardiovascular disease reported feeling much better, more alive, could exercise longer without angina pains and shortness of breath.
Again, another theory popped up: if you get rid of the heavy metals in your body, you've removed the source of millions of free radicals and the tissues of the body begin to heal themselves, sloughing off the calcium that causes hardening of the arteries.

Now like most theories, this one has its detractors: the physicians who own yachts purchased with their profits from angioplasties, bypass surgeries, etc. are the most vocal. Intravenous chelation therapy costs a lot less than surgery and is not covered by most insurance companies (cheap? effective? I wonder who runs these companies).

Next we have oral chelation which consists of taking a balanced supplementation schedule that removes heavy metals from your body. This theory too has its detractors: the physicians who do intravenous chelation therapy. Profit is the bottom line in most medical theories. Sadly, all statistics on projected life-span are ignored when a the medical profession's profits are at stake: people on chelation therapy live longer than those having bypass surgery. Simple fact.

However, we now have the perfect chelation therapy as reported by Dr Williams, due to the studies from a lowly physician working alone by the name of Dr Omura. Dr Omura found that fresh cilantro removes heavy metals from the body in less than two weeks.

He also discovered that his patients had fewer colds and flu after removing the heavy metals because it seems that viruses and bacteria like to congregate in organs contaminated by heavy metals. His patients also had fewer Herpes outbreaks after removing these heavy metals.
Cilantro is a common Mexican and Middle Eastern spice. It must be used fresh and the stems too are just as good, however, your best chefs use only the leaves because the stems can be bitter. Tossed into a salad is a perfect way to use cilantro, or added to your favorite salsa really perks it up.

Here is a cilantro pesto sauce that will also do the trick. This is the basic recipe, but if you're like me (I approach cooking and love making with reckless abandon), go ahead and play with the recipe. The first time I made the recipe I nearly tripled the oil, lemon juice and garlic, added a dash of cayenne pepper, and got rave reviews.

Cilantro Pesto

1 clove garlic
1/2 cup almonds, cashews, or other nuts
1 cup packed fresh cilantro leaves (and smaller stems)
2 tablespoons lemon juice (a professional chef recommends just one Tbl of lemon juice)
6 tablespoons olive oil
Celtic Sea Salt to taste (www.healthfree.com is where you can order your salt)

Blend the cilantro and olive oil in a blender, add other ingredients to make a nice smooth paste, then go ahead and add some nuts and/or seeds: pistachio, cashews, almonds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, you name it. Have fun. Add it to your favorite pasta and serve warm or cold. Remember, cayenne pepper added to anything has a synergistic effect, making all the other ingredients work better. Simple fact.

Cilantro-Pepita Dressing
1 medium Anaheim Chili, roasted -- peeled and seeded
3 tablespoons Roasted pumpkin seeds (Shelled) -- (pepitas)
1 large Clove garlic (increase to taste)
1/8 teaspoon Freshly ground black pepper (or Cayenne Pepper)
1/2 teaspoon Celtic Sea Salt
3/4 cup Olive Oil
2 tablespoons Red wine vinegar (ahhh, if building your immune system, use organic apple cider vinegar only)
3 tablespoons Grated cotija cheese
1 small Bunch cilantro -- stemmed (Better still, a packed cup of cilantro leaves)
3/4 cup Mayonnaise (Ahhh! you may substitute, Nayonaise, made from soy, or Yogurt)
2 tablespoons Water

Note: If cotija cheese is unavailable, use any hard grating cheese, such as cacique or even Parmesan.

Place chili, pepitas, garlic, pepper, salt, oil, vinegar and cotija cheese in blender or food processor. Blend about 10 seconds, then add cilantro, bit by bit, until smoothly blended. Place mayonnaise and water in large stainless-steel bowl and whisk until smooth. Add blended chili mixture and mix thoroughly
Place in airtight container and refrigerate. Dressing may be stored up to three days. Makes about 2 cups.

Have fun with this. I am always amazed at how many little healthy choices can add up to a very long and fruitful life.

And hey, let's hear your feedback. Angina pains diminishing? General overall health improving? Tell us! We'll pass it on.
"Let your food be your medicine, and your medicine be your food."


EDTA chelation also effectively cleans out the arteries. "While 800,000 Americans die every year from heart disease, a cheap, effective medical remedy continues to be suppressed." - Dr. James P. Carter, M.D. Intravenous hydrogen peroxide "will clean arteries of atherosclerotic buildup," - Dr. Douglass, page 36. Dr. Ornish's program has the advantage that you can do it on your own at home and on an ongoing basis so that your arteries remain clean.
