When life gives you lemons, drink them !!!!!!!!!!!! (Part2)

As with part 1 ……..
Please note, this is my routine and so far has worked for me.
Everyone is different and no one tumour or cancer is the same.
What works for one, may not have the same effect for others.
Theses are my own opinions and findings, through my own experiences and extensive research.
I don’t claim to know it all, or even always get it right, so feel free to contact me if you think anything else can or may help .

I co-operate fully and adhere to the normal western medical practices.
But I do this in conjunction, with tackling my diet , exercising , keeping my mind calm and focused. I research and try experimenting with holistic & alternative therapies, running them all side by side one another .
I believe by attacking my condition 360 degrees, from all angles , I am giving myself the best chance possible to survive against the odds .
I want to be a different type of statistic, one out on my own.
One as a survivor of my incurable , terminal disease.

Supplementation

This is a list of what I take, on a daily basis and the potential benefits they have on my body.

Niacin (vitamin B3) –
Niacin, or vitamin B3, as it is also known, is involved in over 50 metabolic processes , that are meant to turn carbohydrates into energy.
Besides providing energy to the cells from the entire body, niacin is also responsible for the integrity of these cells. Below are listed some of the processes niacin participates in:
Antioxidant effect
Blood sugar control
Decrease of cholesterol levels
Detoxification
Production of adrenal hormones
Production of hydrochloric acid in the stomach
Production of sex hormones
Vitamin B3 will also turn fat into energy, as it is also involved in fat metabolism.

Niacin helps to maintain your central nervous system and brain function . adequate niacin intake may help prevent Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and age-related cognitive decline. It also plays a role in decreasing migraine and tension-type headaches.
Niacin also seems to be very effective in increasing joint mobility. Correlated with the facts that niacin enhances muscle strength and reduces muscle and joint fatigue, this means that vitamin B3 can be successfully used in the treatment of osteoarthritis. If it is administered in high doses each day, effects are observed in 3 to 4 months. Niacin is also appreciated for its anti-inflammatory effect obviously a bonus for me.
Be warned, as with everything I do, its trail and error and this was a big error in dosage when I first took this supplement.
I made 2 mistakes , I first took this on an empty stomach and secondly I doubled up on the 100mg tablets . The result …… I started with a tingling feeling all over my body. This then resulted in skin flushing . My whole body turned bright red like a cooked lobster . I looked horrifically sunburnt!!!!
My skin was itchy and very uncomfortable.
I took a cold shower to cool my body down and relive the symptoms . They lasted for a very uncomfortable hour. I know take a 100mg tablet a day but I take half in the morning after food and the same in the evening afterfood.

Inositol hexaphosphate (IP6) –
is a chemical found in beans, brown rice, corn, sesame seeds, wheat bran, and other high-fiber foods. It is converted into compounds in the body that are used by cells to relay outside messages to the cell nucleus. IP6 also aids the body in its use, or metabolism, of calcium and other minerals.

Animal and lab research has found that IP6 to be effective in preventing tumors from forming and slowing tumor growth. One small study done in humans found that IP6 might help ease the side effects of chemotherapy and improve quality of life in people with cancer.

IP6 is a “natural cancer fighter” and claim, it slows or reverses the growth of various forms of cancer, including breast, colon, and prostate cancers. It is thought to be an antioxidant, a compound that blocks the action of free radicals, activated oxygen molecules that can damage cells. It may help to prevent the abnormal signals that tell a cancer cell to keep growing from reaching the cell’s nucleus. Research shows IP6 slows abnormal cell division and may sometimes transform tumor cells into normal cells.
It also lays claim that it effectively prevents kidney stones, high cholesterol, heart disease, and liver disease.

Blue green algae/ spirulina –
Blue-green algae is 70% vegetable protein and has higher levels of beta-carotene than broccoli. The onetwo punch potency of blue-green algae is that it contains a high concentration of nutrients- over 65 vitamins, minerals and enzymes and the complete spectrum of eight essential amino acids and ten nonessential amino acids. They are all easily absorbed by the body. In fact up to 97% of the beneficial vitamins, minerals and enzymes found in blue-green algae are easily absorbed (some supplements are as low as 5-25% absorbable). AFA also contains the most biologically active chlorophyll of any known food.

Wild oregano oil- (must have a carvacol of at least 80% )
Oregano contains: fiber, iron, manganese, vitamin E, iron, calcium, omega fatty acids, manganese, and typtophan.
Oregano is also a rich source of Vitamin K – an important vitamin which promotes bone growth, the maintenance of bone density, and the production of blood clotting proteins.
Dietary antioxidants – oregano contains very high concentrations of antioxidants (i.e., >75 mmol/100 g).
It’s produced from the perennial herb oregano and loaded with free-radical-crushing antioxidants. A growing body of research has shown that oregano oil offers many positive health benefits and is one of the most potent natural remedies.
In particular, there has been significant evaluation of its effects against harmful organisms
Oregano oil is a powerful antimicrobial, because it contains an essential compound called carvacol.
A team of British and Indian researchers reported that the essential oil of Himalayan oregano has strong antibacterial properties that can even kill the hospital superbug MRSA.
In studies and trials it has been concluded, findings identify Origanum majorana as a promising chemopreventive and therapeutic candidate that modulate cancer growth and metastasis. Put simply, they believe components in oregano may help slow down or prevent the progression of cancer in patients.
According to The Natural Medicines Database, oregano is also used for the following illnesses and conditions:
Cold
Muscle pain
Acne
Dandruff
Bronchitis
Toothache
Bloating
Headaches
Heart Conditions
Allergies
Intestinal parasites
Earache
Fatigue
Repelling insects
Menstrual cramps

Liquid chlorophyll
– I take this in a glass of water in the morning.
Chlorophyll is one of my favourite nutrients. It has so many health benefits. But what stands out about this, is the fact that its molecular structure is almost identical to hemoglobin except for the center atom.
In hemoglobin this is iron, whereas in chlorophyll it is magnesium.

This means that when ingested, liquid chlorophyll can actually help to do the job of hemoglobin (hemoglobin is so vital to the health of our blood – in fact, blood is approx 75% hemoglobin). It helps to rebuild and replenish our red blood cells, boosting our energy and increasing our wellbeing almost instantly.

So in addition to helping to rebuild and replenish our red blood cells, liquid chlorophyll benefits include not only being highly alkaline, but also the following:

Anti Carcinogenic: 


Antioxidant & Anti-inflammatory:
containing high levels of the vitamins A, C and E, liquid chlorophyll has strong antioxidant capacity and has also been found to help reduce inflammation 

Chelation of Heavy Metals: chlorophyll is one of the most important chelates in nature. It’s ability to bind to and remove toxic heavy metals such as mercury makes it an extremely powerful healer. 

Anti-Candida:  chlorophyll to be a powerful internal deodorant.

Wound Healing & Antiseptic: while liquid chlorophyll doesn’t actually have antiseptic properties of its own, it, quite remarkably, DOES have the ability to aid our body’s tissue in destroying germs. By strengthening tissue, it increases the disease resistance of cells and, at the same time, prevents the growth of bacteria!                      Rapid Delivery of Magnesium: chlorophyll is rich in magnesium, which is a highly alkaline mineral and so consuming chlorophyll rich foods has a highly alkalising effect on the body. Magnesium is super-important as it helps to deliver much needed oxygen to cells and tissues, bone formation, nerve and muscle function – PLUS – magnesium is critical for our cardiovascular system, digestive system, nervous system, muscles, kidneys, liver, hormone-secreting glands, and brain all rely on magnesium for their metabolic function.Contains vitamin K, C, folic acid, iron, calcium, protein: which are all also essential in building and repairing red blood cells and boosting our immune system.

Acidophilus Pro biotic  – High strength probiotic to aid and boost digestion, keep the stomach healthy and stomach enzymes in check.

Msm – MSM is an abbreviation for methyl-sulfonyl-methane, which is organic sulfur compound. This compound is the third largest nutrient found in the human body and is found in all vertebrates. MSM is also an ingredient found in quite a few foods, meat, dairy products as well as vegetables.
sulfur plays a critical role in detoxification, and also in inflammatory conditions. For detoxification, sulfur is part of one of the most important antioxidants that your body produces: glutathione.
sulfur plays an important role in the production of glutathione—one of the most important antioxidants that your body produces. Glutathione also serves important functions for detoxification. Without sulfur, glutathione cannot work. So, while not an antioxidant by itself, part of MSM’s action is to improve your body’s ability to make its own antioxidants.

Apricot kernels- I love these, Apricot kernels are like most nuts and seeds, very nutritious. Among the nutrients they contain is one called amygdalin, which is also known as vitamin B17. This is reported to attacks cancer cells.
Amygdalin (vitamin B17) is contained in many hundreds of foods, but ones that are particularly rich in amygdalin have disappeared to a large extent from our Western diet.
It is claimed that vitamin B17 helps in the prevention of cancer. Apricot seed has the highest percentage of B17 in any fruits and consuming this seed will allegedly help prevent cancer.
Vitamin B17, and hence apricot seed, also helps to lower high blood pressure
Helps to reduce pain associated with arthritis.
Help to maintain the general health and well-being. Hence, it will strengthen the ability to resist infections like colds and flu
Most people eat apricot seeds not just for the overall general well-being, but because of its property to prevent cancer, which leads me into Cyanide contained in B17.
An apricot seed contains just about half mg of cyanide. Based on a report by the Committee on Toxicity (2006), dosage of between 0.5 – 3.5 mg per kg of body weight can be fatal. So, I weigh 74kg I would have to consume 40mg to 280 mg that is equivalent to about 100-560 apricot seeds, per day, for it to be fatal.

It is claimed that about five milligram of cyanide is considered sufficient to prevent cancer. This is equivalent to eating 10 apricot seeds per day. It is also claimed that to combat existing cancer, you will need to consume 50 apricot seeds.
I consume between 25-30 a day. I really can’t face trying to fit up to 50 seeds a day in. I try to let them solidify in my mouth, till my tongue starts to numb, I also put them in smoothies to avoid the bitter taste.

Vitamin D3- While you’re catching some rays this summer, think about vitamin D. Sometimes called the “sunshine vitamin” because it’s produced in your skin in response to sunlight. Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin in a family of compounds that includes vitamins D1, D2, and D3. It can affect as many as 2,000 genes in the body.

Vitamin D has several important functions. Perhaps the most vital are regulating the absorption of calcium and phosphorous, and facilitating normal immune system function. Getting a sufficient amount of the vitamin is important for normal growth and development of bones and teeth, as well as improved resistance against certain diseases.

Aloe Vera gel- Aloe vera is a succulent plant species. The species is frequently cited as being used in herbal medicine since the beginning of the first century AD. Extracts from Aloe vera are widely used in the cosmetics and alternative medicine industries, being marketed as variously having rejuvenating, healing, or soothing properties. I use the gel taken straight from the plant 100% organic and natural.

1. Detoxifying

Aloe vera juice is crammed full of amino acids, vitamins and minerals making it one of nature’s most effective cleansers. ‘It can help strengthen digestion and rid the body of any nasty waste, thus detoxifying the body naturally,’ says Sebastian. ‘Its main property is to be soothing, cooling and moistening which helps to clear inflammatory and irritating heat, such as in menopause, plus inflammatory skin and digestive problems, such as acne, rosacea and IBS.’

2. Supports the immune system
Aloe vera is packed full of immune-boosting polysaccharides which help the immune system to behave properly. ‘Too much inflammation in the body can cause problems within the immune system and can cause conditions like asthma, eczema and Crohn’s disease. Soothing herbs like aloe vera juice can slow the inflammatory cascade and help reorder the immune response to prevent these conditions.’
3. Lowers cholesterol and blood sugar
There is some evidence to suggest aloe vera lowers cholesterol and has a positive effect on blood sugar levels, meaning it can be useful for treating diabetes and obesity.
4. Excellent for digestion
It’s worth trying for anyone who suffers with digestion problems like IBS. Its healing and soothing properties can help with the painful symptoms.

5. An easy way to boost your vitamin and mineral intake
Aloe vera juice is packed with vitamins A, C, E, B1, B2, B3, B6, B12 and folic acid. It’s also rich in minerals like calcium, magnesium, zinc, iron, selenium and potassium. Sounds pretty good, right?
