CHERYL IS SUFFERING FROM A SERIOUS SIDE EFFECT OF THE MRI DYE

I started to worry when Cheryl missed her second weekly check-in. I couldn’t get a response to voice mails and texts. Her computer was glitching so I didn’t bother with email. After almost three weeks out of contact she finally picked up the phone one morning, only to tell me in a hushed tone that she couldn’t talk because she was in the hospital.

Three days later I got a voice mail from her telling me she had been too sick to even have a conversation. That they didn’t know what was wrong with her. That she had been tested for several diseases, including non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, which were all negative.

What? Didn’t I just cure her of cancer?  

GADOLINIUM CONTRAST MEDIUM IS THE DYE USED IN CHERYL’S MRI

Gadolinium Contrast Medium (GCM), (aka, MRI Contrast Medium), is used in a third of MRI’s, and was injected intravenously as part of the scan. In magnetic resonance imaging, GCM makes the scan clearer and easier to read. It makes it easier to see soft tissue abnormalities, disease processes such as inflammation, or a tumor.

Using GCM is akin to taking a photo and then photoshopping it to sharpen the focus. GCM is how you photoshop an MRI scan. The dye can easily be seen traveling through the bloodstream, and blood goes everywhere inside your body.

GCM has a carrier molecule called a “chelating agent.” It helps to ensure that GCM is distributed equally throughout the body. Equal and balanced distribution is important in order to overcome GCM’s known toxicity, while still maintaining important contrast properties. One of the worst things that can happen is to have GCM clump up in spots and not remain equally distributed.

Under ordinary circumstances GCM is almost entirely expelled through the urine within 24 hours. The problem is some people have trouble getting GCM out of their system once the MRI is over. That is what Cheryl is facing now.

GCM SIDE EFFECTS ARE RARE BUT DO HAPPEN

  • The minor side effects from GCM are headache, nausea, and dizziness. They occur in only 5% of patients. Even more infrequently, a feeling of coldness may occur at the injection site for a short period.
  • More serious allergic side effects are experienced by about 1 in 10,000, and include difficulty breathing and swelling of the lips and mouth. These reactions occur immediately, usually while still in the MRI department, and typically respond well to emergency drug treatment.
  • Also serious is when the body cannot excrete the dye in a timely fashion. It usually settles in the lower extremities causing an inflammatory reaction and grave water retention.
  • A small fraction of people contract a serious and sometimes life threatening disease reaction called Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis (NSF). NSF manifests as localized thickening and tightening of the skin. It can lead to internal organ damage, because the same thing can happen to connective tissue. NSF only occurs in people with impaired kidney function. That is why anyone with kidney problems is not supposed to be given GCM.

(Molan, Maurice, Dr., Goergen, Stacy, Prof., (2009) The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists. “Gadolinium Contrast Medium (MRI Contrast Agents).” http://www.insideradiology.com.au/)

CHERYL’S SIDE EFFECTS

It is too soon to tell if Cheryl has NSF specifically, but she does have a nasty set of GCM side effects. She also has serious kidney impairment.

Cheryl has had renal colic for almost five years, ever since her kidneys were injured in a serious auto accident. There is ample information in Cheryl’s medical records regarding this accident, including MRIs, ultra sounds, and other tests.

Ordinarily renal colic is a type of pain due to the presence of kidney stones. Cheryl does not have kidney stones, but she has severe pain that comes in waves, and clearly she has kidney impairment. Nevertheless, Cheryl was given GCM, which is not supposed to be given to anyone with kidney impairment.

Her doctors never discussed the use of GCM with Cheryl. She was given tests for kidney and liver function prior to the MRI, and they indicated no problems. But there was never a conversation about its use and the danger it presented to her. If they had bothered to read her medical records carefully or discuss it with her she could have avoided all of this misery.

Cheryl is in real distress right now and has several excruciating problems due to the side effects of the GCM dye:

  • There is substantial swelling in both legs and feet that make it difficult to stand and walk. Sitting on the front left ankle and right hip are water sacs the size of large grapefruits. Both are tender and painful. When touched it is obvious they are filled with liquid.
  • There is a sensation of extreme cold that extends from her left hip all the way down past the affected ankle sac. It is also present in her right foot. These areas feel normal when touched, but to Cheryl they are painfully cold.
  • There are dark lines about a quarter inch thick encircling both ankles. Her skin color above the line is her normal white color, but it is a darker grey color below the line. Cheryl feels very sick, nauseated and achy like with the flu. She had to quit one job because she is exhausted all the time.
  • There is a serious problem with her mouth. Her teeth and gums are sore and painful, making it hard to chew. She has a bad, metallic taste in her mouth that ruins the taste of whatever she eats. She rinses with salt water every couple of hours, trying to get rid of the taste.

CHERYL’S PROGNOSIS

Her doctors say they have no idea what is wrong with Cheryl, or how to fix it. Yet they also say this reaction occurs from time to time with the use of GCM. So which is it? And why the mystery? If the doctors have seen this reaction with the dye before, why are they giving her all sorts of tests to find out what is wrong? Why are they not attributing it to the dye?

This is the same irrational logic of Cheryl’s oncologist. He witnessed the elimination of the cancerous tissue and the benign tumor shrinking, but still wanted to cut into her to get at what was left of the tumor. Why not wait and see if the tumor continues to disappear on its own? It is shrinking after all. And it’s benign, so why the rush to cut?

For now her medical team continues to test for any number of diseases, whether or not it is possible for Cheryl to have contracted them. They simply don’t know what else to do. I am worried that they may do more harm before they are finished.

I ask myself why practitioners in the medical industry don’t react well to new information and try to utilize it to get a better outcome for their patients. Why aren’t they more curious? When the oncologists saw that whatever Cheryl was using had caused the cancer to disappear and the benign tumor to shrink, why weren’t they more excited? Where was the passion? Why didn’t they question her and try to find out more so they could learn and help others?

It’s seems like medical school deprives them of the ability to seek out new truths, and think new thoughts. It shuts down the creative process so that they never question what they have been told and never seek further clarity.

Making it all worse is their certainty that they are always right, to the point of arrogance, which is not supported by reality because they are wrong more often than they are right. They have failed miserably in carrying out their Hippocratic oath to first do no harm. Cheryl is one more small example in a sea of mistakes.

All Cheryl’s doctors had to do was talk to her about the MRI and the use of GCM. They would have discovered she had the accident that damaged her kidneys and would not have used GCM. In that case Cheryl would be celebrating her recent win over cancer, and getting on with her new life, instead of having to face all this additional and unnecessary misfortune.

CHERYL’S NEXT STEP

Cheryl was scheduled for an x-ray of the benign tumor on June 27, 2016 to see if it continues to shrink. The appointment was canceled because she was too ill.

I have added L-Cysteine and Vitamin C to her regimen to assist her body in detoxifying, and bee pollen and honey to calm her allergic reactions.

REFLECTIONS ON A UNIVERSAL CANCER CURE 

There is an aspect to the natural cure that did not occur to me before now. That is the profound loss of privacy faced by cancer patients.

The invasion happens literally and figuratively. Literally, because they actually invade your bodily privacy. Figuratively, because a conventional cancer patient can’t keep the news to themselves. Getting over cancer is not something you can do alone if you use conventional means.

Even if you try to keep it secret the physical toll prevents that. We’re all familiar with the bald eyebrows, bandana wrapped head, weight loss, and haggard look that signal cancer treatment. Word gets around and then comes the sympathy, and more than a little pity. People don’t like being pitied.

Along with other unhappy features of conventional cancer treatment, Cheryl avoided any intrusions to her privacy by using natural means. Outside of her medical team only I, and a nurse friend, know that she had cancer. (I love using the past tense to refer to Cheryl’s cancer.)

Cheryl continued to work during my treatment for her breast cancer. Two, sometimes three, jobs, even during the first three weeks, which were the hardest. Long hours on her feet bartending and doing hair, shuttling a friend’s kids to school. She is single and did her own shopping, cooking, laundry, and housekeeping. She went to church and brunch on Sundays, and played mahjongg with the girls on Tuesday nights. Since she was keeping her cancer a secret, she had to keep up her routine, and she couldn’t ask for help.

And yet, Cheryl was able to do all of that, as though everything were fine, because the natural treatment doesn’t take a toll on you. It doesn’t make you heave and hurl. Doesn’t rob you of energy and vitality. Doesn’t kill your sex life. Doesn’t cause hair trauma, bruising, or anemia. Doesn’t make you prone to systemic infection. Doesn’t cause sleep problems. Doesn’t rot your gums and cause throat distress. Doesn’t cause constipation and diarrhea, all in the same day. Doesn’t make you look and feel like something the cat dragged in.

Let’s face it. Conventional cancer treatment only adds to the sheer wretchedness of the disease itself. It adds its own set of ugly burdens on top of having cancer. It is always intrusive, sometimes fatally so.

The natural treatment does no harm and causes no discomfort. There are no side effects. And no one has to know that you have cancer unless you decide to tell them.

I’m seeing how much the ability to remain silent about her treatment actually means to Cheryl. Even more than she anticipated, I believe. I know this, because she still doesn’t want me to divulge her real name or where she lives on the blog.

Frankly, I can’t blame her for her attitude, and will honor her request. It can be freeing to be able to keep your business your business.

CHERYL’S NEXT STEP

Cheryl is still scheduled for an x-ray of the benign tumor on June 27, 2016. The MRI showed that it was significantly reduced. She will continue her high doses of beta carotene, D3, and lecithin in order to continue shrinking the tumor. I will let you know the results of that x-ray as soon as I have them.

THE TIMING OF THE NATURAL CURE

Cheryl’s cancer was gone after six weeks, but that wasn’t long enough to remove the benign tumor. It had shrunk but was still there. From what we’ve witnessed with Cheryl, apparently simple cancerous tissue can be eliminated faster than can a tumor, even a benign one. It’s probably a simple question of volume as the tumor has more mass than the diseased tissue.

Therefore, for purposes of costing out the treatment I have given 10 weeks as an outside estimate of how long it will take the average person to get over cancer. That should include even malignant tumors of a reasonable size and number.

If the cancer case is a difficult one, it will take longer. For instance, my first cancer subject, Jim, had 100 visible tumors. It took three full months for even the smallest of them to disappear, because there were so many. It was over six months before the visible ones were gone completely.

Empirical observation tells us so far that depending on the circumstances of the cancer, it can take from approximately 6 to 26 weeks to cure cancerous tissue and remove tumors naturally. Once cured, however, a simple twice daily maintenance dose will ensure that you never have cancer again.

THE COST OF THE NATURAL CURE

The cost for 10 weeks of supplements to treat cancer is approximately $650.00 per person. Add an additional $65.00 for every week that treatment continues after 10 weeks, with a presumed maximum cost for six months being $1690. This is a startling amount for access to a ground breaking, universal cancer cure.

Remember, this treatment will work on any cancer, anywhere in the body of any mammal. That is why it is “universal.”

For two of the three vitamins needed to cure cancer (beta carotene, D3), I recommend Puritan’s Pride brand. For the third cancer supplement (non-GMO soya lecithin granules, and/or sunflower lecithin softgels), I order NOW brand from Vitamin Life.)

A CALL TO HEAL FOR CANCER PATIENTS WHO WANT A REAL ALTERNATIVE

This is it. A real alternative. And it’s available right this minute. If you have cancer I urge you to try it. Just think, you can brush that horrific burden right off your shoulders. Turn things around and be fine in a few months. You can duplicate Cheryl’s results just as easily as she did. If you have been sent home to get your affairs in order it doesn’t matter, you can still beat it.

I would like to hear from people with cancer, or people who love someone with cancer. It doesn’t matter what kind of cancer it is. It doesn’t matter where in the body it is located. It doesn’t matter how horrible the prognosis is. If you are still alive, you can be helped.

The subject can be human or animal. Any mammal.

As hard as it is to believe, cancer is a simple nutrient deficiency. If you have it that means you are not consuming enough anti-oxidants generally, and beta carotene specifically to counter and match free radical growth.

My foundation coffer is very low at this time, so I cannot offer you free or discounted supplements now. I am hopeful that Cheryl’s story may elicit an increase in tax exempt donations to my 501c3.  For now I can offer you guidance and support while you go through my cure. All I ask is that you (1) keep a cancer diary, (2) stay in regular contact with me, and (3) let me chronicle your experience in The Road Back, the book on cancer I am writing.

When I get the money my dream is to sponsor research into how to give oil soluble supplements like beta carotene intravenously. Right now I can only help people if they can eat and swallow. A lot of times that precludes someone who could be helped otherwise. This is especially unfortunate with animals, who can’t be persuaded, who don’t understand that it is important for them to eat in order to live.

Just a dream, but sometimes dreams come true, right?

HAPPY DAYS ARE HERE AGAIN. THE MRI RESULTS ARE IN AND IT’S NOTHING BUT GOOD NEWS! 

We need a better word to describe this news. Cheryl’s breast cancer is gone! Completely eliminated by beta carotene, the most powerful inflammation and cancer fighting anti-oxidant available today. Cheryl has known for weeks, just by the way she feels, that her cancer was gone.

To review: Cheryl had both cancerous tissue surrounding a blocked milk duct, and a tumor that although benign was scheduled for surgical removal along with the diseased tissue. The oncologists’ biggest concern was that the cancer would spread to the tumor, and beyond. Cheryl was warned that once surgery began she might lose the breast, if the doctor decided that her condition warranted it.

The MRI, performed on April 20, 2016, showed that as of that date Cheryl was cancer free, and the benign tumor had shrunken in size. The new oncologist who ordered the MRI told Cheryl to keep doing whatever she was doing, because it appeared to be working.

She is scheduled for another x-ray of the benign tumor on June 27, 2016. Cheryl’s oncologist is still prepared for surgery on that date. Apparently, he anticipates that whatever is reducing it might suddenly stop working. Cheryl and I anticipate that the tumor will be smaller or completely gone by then, and surgery will be unnecessary.

The timing means it took about six weeks to cure the breast cancer, from on or around March 6, when she began the really large therapeutic doses of beta carotene, to April 20, the date of the MRI, when she was pronounced cancer free.

Cheryl trusted me enough to do exactly as I said. I had helped her with other disorders during our five year friendship. She decided along the way that I knew what I was doing. She never vacillated, even when I told her she would have to take literally hundreds of supplements every day for months to be free of cancer.

Cheryl was so certain I was going to cure her cancer that when she discovered I had she wasn’t even surprised. She didn’t get excited or euphoric like you would expect after being told that. She didn’t call me as soon as she got to her car, all aflush with happiness. Cheryl simply went back to work after the appointment.

In fact, she didn’t call to tell me for four days! She found out on Thursday. I didn’t find out until our weekly phone call last Monday, when she casually mentioned it in her update. I know she’s practical and down-to-earth, but still. I did get excited and euphoric, and scolded her for not calling me right away. She was all like, “Well, you knew it was going to happen.”

Once the benign tumor is gone and Cheryl can reduce to a daily maintenance dose, I will ask her to figure out how much she spent for supplements specifically to cure the cancer and eradicate the tumor. I estimate that her cost so far is under $600. The cost of a weekend vacation for two at a moderately priced resort, if you have a coupon.

My natural cancer treatment caused Cheryl zero discomfort, although she did lose her appetite in the beginning. She also experienced achy pain for five days–two weeks into treatment–in the affected breast, which necessitated ibuprophen twice daily. She never once lost her hair, her lunch, or her dignity. No one who knows her has any idea that she has battled and won a war against breast cancer. And she never has to contemplate having a healthy breast, or other body part, removed to forestall future cancer. Cheryl now knows the secret to living a cancer free life. That secret is now an open one available to everyone.

___________________________________________________________

Here is a fuller list of the side effects Cheryl avoided by using beta carotene instead of chemicals, drugs, or radiation to cure her cancer and reduce her tumor:

anemia • bleeding and bruising • constipation • delirium • diarrhea • extreme fatigue •  hair loss (alopecia) • infections • inability to concentrate • memory loss •  mouth, teeth, and throat troubles • nausea and vomiting • nerve problems (neuropathy) • sexual drive and fertility issues • skin and nail degradation • swelling (edema) • trouble sleeping • urinary tract and bladder infections, plus more

NIH/National Cancer Institute. (2015) “Cancer Treatment Side Effects.” http://www.cancer.gov/about-cancer/treatment/side-effects

Also, let’s not forget the misery and stress from anticipating and experiencing each aspect of the medical industry’s treatments for cancer and the above mentioned side effects. She missed that too.

___________________________________________________________

The reason Cheryl will not cancel the scheduled surgery outright is that she wants me to have the information that will come from her going forward, as though surgery were still a possibility.

DOSE LEVELS

Cheryl continues to take 250 count, of the 25,000 IU strength softgels in a dose of 125 softgels twice daily. Her Vitamin D3 level remains the same. She continues to take 4 sunflower lecithin softgels twice daily. Cheryl will remain at these levels until the tumor is completely gone. She will then reduce to a maintenance level that she will take daily for the rest of her life.

I will continue to publish posts about Cheryl’s treatment and success over cancer. I will also give you a cancer summary blog pulling together all the sections I discussed in Cheryl’s entries. I will make it as simple as I can. I hope you are beginning to understand why cancer is not the scary disease you thought it was.

BAILEY IS MY NEWEST CANCER PATIENT

Starting soon I will begin another running blog about a new cancer patient I am treating with beta carotene and its support supplements. Remember, this treatment works on any cancer, anywhere in the body of any mammal. Human, dog, cat, horse, hamster, doesn’t matter.

A family in Florida, Scott and Samantha, contacted me after receiving devastating news about their dog, Bailey. They talked to a mutual friend about my abilities, read Cheryl’s blogs, and asked me to help their beloved Bailey.

Bailey is a 9 year old Bernese Mountain dog who was given three months to live; that was three weeks ago. He has inoperable cancer, malignant tumors in his lung and his liver. At least they are the ones the vet knows about. She believes he might easily have more.

Stay tuned to follow Bailey’s natural journey out of sickness and into wellness again.

Some people cannot afford the cost of the cancer supplements, as inexpensive as they are in comparison, because their insurance will only pay for conventional medical treatments but not natural ones.

WE ARE STILL WAITING ON THE RESULTS OF THE MRI 

I have been getting emails from people wanting to know how Cheryl is doing, since it has been three weeks since my last post. She had the MRI as scheduled on April 20, just two weeks ago as I write this. Apparently these kinds of results don’t come down fast. So we wait.

Cheryl’s condition remains the same as last reported in Blog 40. For her, life has pretty much returned to normal. She has a healthy appetite. She is regular. She has no pain in the cancer area. Her mood is exceptional. This is her busy season with weddings and spring parties. Her energy is high and she’s working 14 hour days.

Cheryl plays a large part in the parties that she works. She will sometimes cut the men’s hair, style the women’s hair, and then setup and bartend the event. She seems to have moved on with her life, past cancer, and is not looking back. She is happy and enjoying her life.

The results of the MRI will decide Cheryl’s immediate future. They will tell us that:

  1. The tumor is larger or the same size; beta carotene isn’t working; Cheryl proceeds to surgery.
  2. The tumor is smaller but still there; beta carotene is working, but Cheryl needs more time with the natural treatment; surgery is postponed to give beta carotene time to completely eliminate the tumor. 
  3. The tumor is gone; beta carotene has worked; Cheryl’s dosage is reduced to a maintenance level that she will take as long as she lives to prevent cancer’s return; surgery is canceled.

Dose Levels

Cheryl continues to take 250 count, of the 25,000 IU strength softgels in a dose of 125 softgels twice daily. Her Vitamin D3 level remains the same. She continues to take 4 sunflower lecithin softgels twice daily.

CANCER 101 

Capehart Cancer Formula

(CA = FRG ≥ X + O + I)©

Formula Explanation: Cancer equals free radical growth greater than or equal to X, with X being an individual’s tolerance level for said growth. When growth reaches the threshold for that individual, oxidation/decay sets in. As decay spreads, it triggers inflammation. If nothing is done, inflammation will continue until it turns chronic. Chronic inflammation is the last step before any cancer.

Look at the cancer formula as a series of steps:

Step 1: cell damage occurs through injury, toxins, stress, infection, etc.

Step 2: electrons escape cell and become free radicals

Step 3: free radical growth expands rapidly as they attack healthy cells

Step 4: individual threshold X is reached or exceeded

Step 5: oxidation/decay occurs and triggers inflammation

Step 6: simple inflammation persists and turns into chronic

inflammation

Step 7: cancer (or other inflammatory based disorder) then flares

(Shacter, E., PhD., Weitzman, S., MD, (2002) Journal of Oncology Cancer Network, “Chronic Inflammation and Cancer.” http://www.cancernetwork.com/review-article/chronic-inflammation-and-cancer#sthash.A96sQUUT.dpuf)

Capehart Cancer Cure Formula 

(CU = Ai ≥ FRG)© 

Formula Explanation: Cancer is cured and prevented with Anti-oxidant intake greater than or equal to free radical growth.

Look at the cure formula as a series of steps:

Step 1: cell damage occurs through injury, toxins, stress, infection, etc.

Step 2: electrons escape cell and become free radicals

Step 3: a group of free radicals encounter a group of anti-oxidant cells

Step 4: the anti-oxidant cells split and voluntarily donate their electrons

to the free radicals waiting nearby

Step 5: each free radical that is paired with an anti-oxidant electron is

returned to a non cancerous state at the exact moment of that

pairing

Step 6: as long as anti-oxidant intake equals or exceeds free radical

growth, no cancer can exist anywhere in the body

But Why Are Such High Doses of Beta Carotene Necessary?

Remember that beating cancer is a numbers game. Each single electron of an anti-oxidant cell donates itself to a single free radical, one-on-one, turning the free radical back into a normal, non cancerous cell. But that means that you need millions of anti-oxidant cells to combat the millions of free radicals present, a number that is constantly increasing at an exponential rate.

“Atoms And Elements” http://www.english-online.at/science/atoms-and-elements/atoms-and-important-chemical-elements.htm.

RETAIL STORE VITAMIN DISPLAY   Since free radical growth can in some cases exceed millions per second, it is vital to take high enough doses of beta carotene in supplement form to ensure that anti-oxidant consumption will always equal or exceed the amount of free radicals that are present in the body at any given time. Any free radicals left behind unpaired will continue the growth and proliferation of other free radicals. If you can control free radical growth you never have to worry about cancer in your lifetime.

This is the core reason why and how beta carotene cures cancer. It does it one free radical at a time. And it is doable.

Don’t forget that food alone is not enough to stop or prevent cancer in everyone, no matter how perfect the diet. You must also take beta carotene in supplement form in order to be 100% sure of avoiding and eliminating cancer.

Please stay tuned and let us hear from you if you have comments or questions. In the next blog I will give you a step by step overview of everything I have said about cancer in Cheryl’s cancer log.

CHERYL CONTINUES TO IMPROVE ON THE NATURAL TREATMENT AND HAS SEEN A SECOND ONCOLOGIST

Cheryl went in for her second-opinion appointment on April 5th. She had never directly criticized her original oncologist to me, but I got the sense that she was not impressed with her. I hadn’t realized how dissatisfied Cheryl was, and I don’t think she did either, until she was able to compare the first doctor with the second-opinion doctor. Day and night, she says.

Cheryl says that prior to setting up her breast surgery, the first doctor spent 12 minutes with her. That she discussed no treatment options or anything relating to the cancer, touching only on the details about the day of surgery. She certainly didn’t try to comfort Cheryl in any way.

When Cheryl pressed her for more information the doctor told her blankly that she was in a high risk group and the breast had to go; that she was a surgeon and didn’t promote other methods to fight or cope with cancer. For breast cancer the standard was to remove the breast. Period.

The second doctor spent an hour and a half with Cheryl, and without being prompted explained not only all aspects of the surgery but also gave her details about her cancer. By the end of the visit, Cheryl had retained the second doctor and dismissed the first.

THE SECOND OPINION VISIT

When Cheryl sat down with the second doctor, but before he had examined her, he told her that based on her medical records she was in a high risk group and the surgery could not be postponed again. He said there was no other way for her to save her life except to have the breast removed.

Ah, but wait…then he examined Cheryl and got a little surprise. He said he couldn’t feel anything where the tumor was supposed to be, and according to the tests it was large enough to be distinguished by touch. Since his more recent physical examination conflicts with her older medical records, he has ordered an MRI before proceeding.

This whole time while the first doctor was setting Cheryl up for surgery, she never ordered an MRI. Cheryl had a suspicious mammogram, which led to a biopsy that showed cancer. The first doctor moved from that result directly to surgery as a treatment. The second doctor said biopsies are not always conclusive and no surgery should have been scheduled without an MRI. Moreover, since Cheryl is in a high risk group an MRI is something her insurance will pay for. Cheryl thinks the first doctor moved too quickly to surgery.

Now we wait to see if beta carotene has eliminated the tumor and the cancer. We are looking at three possible outcomes:

(1) The tumor is larger or the same size; beta carotene isn’t working; Cheryl proceeds to surgery.

(2) The tumor is smaller but still there; beta carotene is working; Cheryl continues with the natural treatment; surgery is postponed until further tests can be conducted.

(3) The tumor is gone; beta carotene is working; Cheryl continues with the natural treatment; surgery is canceled.

PERSONAL OBSERVATIONS FROM CHERYL 

Mood 

Cheryl was a little nervous at the start of the week due to the looming second opinion. She so wants the cancer to be gone and this whole ordeal to be over. But she is in good spirits overall, and her strength continues to grow.

Pain

None. 

Regularity 

Cheryl continues to be regular. She moves her bowels twice a day now and there is less product. This would indicate that her body has removed most of the necrotic waste product.

Appetite

Her appetite has pretty much returned to normal, and she can eat what she pleases. Of course, she makes sure to eat plenty of fruits and vegetables high in anti-oxidants in order to support the efforts of the beta carotene.

Dose Levels

Cheryl continues to take 250 count, of the 25,000 IU strength softgels in a dose of 125 softgels twice daily. Her Vitamin D3 level remains the same. She continued to have occasional stomach distress at the higher lecithin levels of 6 softgels twice daily. For that reason, I have moved her back to 4 softgels twice daily. She says that the distress was not bad enough that she couldn’t continue at the higher level, but I make it a point not to ignore the body’s call for help via its presentation of symptoms.

Here is another look at Cheryl’s dosage levels chart.

CANCER 101 

Capehart Cancer Formula

(CA = FRG ≥ X + O + I)©

Formula Explanation: Cancer equals free radical growth greater than or equal to X, with X being an individual’s tolerance level for said growth. When growth reaches the threshold for that individual, oxidation/decay, sets in. As decay spreads, it triggers inflammation. If nothing is done, inflammation will continue until it turns chronic, the last step before any cancer.

Look at the formula as the seven steps to cancer:

Step 1: cell damage occurs

Step 2: electrons escape cell and turn into free radicals

Step 3: free radical growth expands rapidly as they attack healthy cells

Step 4: individual threshold X is reached or exceeded

Step 5: oxidation/decay occurs and triggers inflammation

Step 6: simple inflammation persists and turns into chronic inflammation

Step 7: cancer then flares

It can take many years to get to cancer, but this is the path that takes you there. Bob Marley sustained a minor toe injury playing soccer that never really healed and worsened over time. Seven years later he died of a cancerous brain tumor that can be traced back to that injury.

(Shacter, E., PhD., Weitzman, S., MD, (2002) Journal of Oncology Cancer Network, “Chronic Inflammation and Cancer.” http://www.cancernetwork.com/review-article/chronic-inflammation-and-cancer#sthash.A96sQUUT.dpuf)

Why Beta Carotene Cures Any Cancer 

We have learned that free radicals are created whenever a cell is damaged, by any number of reasons, and the electrons escape the outer shell of the cell. As soon as these unpaired electrons escape the shell they become free radicals. Seeking a partner electron, they attack the nearest healthy cell, only to create more free radicals, because a free radical cannot pair up with another free radical to become healthy again.

“A free radical is an atom that has an unpaired electron and is therefore unstable and highly reactive.” This process works so fast that free radical growth can exceed millions per second.

(“Atoms And Elements” http://www.english-online.at/science/atoms-and-elements/atoms-and-important-chemical-elements.htm)

Think of it this way: When you consume beta carotene, and other anti-oxidants, their cells roam through your system searching for free radicals. When a beta carotene cell encounters free radicals, the cell voluntarily opens and donates its electrons to the waiting free radicals. After the pairing between a free radical and an anti-oxidant electron, the free radical is returned to normalcy.

What is happening is that, unlike human electrons, when beta carotene electrons escape their cell, they do not turn into free radicals. Instead, they remain stable as a single electron. This stability means that while free radicals cannot pair with each other, they can pair with anti-oxidant electrons and become healthy and non-cancerous again.

That a free radical can pair with an anti-oxidant electron is the core reason why and how beta carotene cures cancer—one free radical at a time.

Anti-Oxidants Help You Avoid And Stop Cancer

 Fruits+and+Vegetables+Make+Skin+Beautiful

Foods high in anti-oxidants help a great deal when you factor in the part they play in eliminating free radicals inside the body. Each single electron in a cell of an anti-oxidant food will reform and make whole one free radical. One to one, it is a game of numbers. Free radicals can grow as fast as millions per second. But there is no limit to the number of free radicals you can “kill” if you consume enough anti-oxidants in food and supplement form. 

(“Atoms And Elements” http://www.english-online.at/science/atoms-and-elements/atoms-and-important-chemical-elements.htm)

In 2009 Russian scientists demonstrated that naturally occurring fat soluble antioxidants reduce inflammation. Fifteen days prior to being artificially induced with acute inflammation the treatment group was given fat soluble antioxidants, including beta carotene. The control group was not given any antioxidants.

The researchers concluded that unique antioxidants could be used therapeutically to reduce the inflammatory response and stimulate the immune system to fight diseases like cancer. And once you reduce inflammation, you have also reduced oxidation and free radical growth.

Make no mistake. Food alone is not enough to stop cancer no matter how perfect your diet. You must take anti-oxidant supplements as well in order to avoid cancer.

Please stay tuned and let us hear from you if you have comments or questions. In the next blog I will explain exactly why such large doses of beta carotene are necessary in order to stop and prevent cancer.

THINGS ARE LOOKING SO GOOD FOR CHERYL THAT SHE HAS POSTPONED HER CANCER SURGERY AGAIN!

I usually talk to Cheryl on Sunday mornings to get an update of the prior week. I got anxious by 10:00 Sunday night, when after two phone messages and three texts I still hadn’t heard back from her. She called Monday morning, a little contrite. Seems that she and an old boyfriend were hanging out enjoying the Easter holiday together.

“All day and night so you couldn’t even call?” I snapped.

“Well, yeah,” she said, “It’s been a long time, if you know what I mean.” Then she giggled.

I thought about it and realized, if she’s feeling good enough for that, it probably bodes well for her cancer. As it turns out I was right.

PERSONAL OBSERVATIONS FROM CHERYL 

Mood 

Cheryl says she hasn’t felt so good, physically and mentally, since before her diagnosis. She remarked most about not feeling exhausted any more and having so much energy. She says she has a new sense of well being. She says, “Everything feels better. Just everything.”

The Surgery

Her new feelings of well being coupled with the fact that there is now an empty space where the tumor was, have caused Cheryl to postpone her breast surgery from April 12 to June 1, 2016. She wants more time to make sure she really needs surgery; she sees it as a last resort.

Cheryl has scheduled instead a complete examination at a new hospital with new doctors, for April 5. Those results will tell us what effect beta carotene has had on her tumor. If we are correct that beta carotene has shrunken it, she will continue on the natural treatment. In that case, she will show up on June 1, solely for the pre surgery examination, and to show off a little. If we are not correct about what beta carotene is doing, Cheryl will proceed with surgery on that day. 

Pain

She had no pain last week. 

Regularity 

Cheryl continues to be regular. She still has large bowel movements but they have dropped to two to three times daily. 

Appetite

Cheryl told me that suddenly Monday night her appetite returned. She was overcome with hunger. She made herself a big ole cheeseburger for dinner. Woohoo! She said it was the best thing she had ever tasted. I don’t think she will be existing on chicken noodle soup, saltines, eggs, and protein shakes any more. This return of her appetite is another indication that her cancer is under control and being eliminated from her now much stronger body.

More Effects of Lecithin

Cheryl has a calcified nodule on the right side of her spine, about an inch above her waist. She says now that it is smaller than it was when she started my natural cancer treatment. We can attribute the reduction in size to the emulsifying powers of lecithin. 

Dose Levels

Cheryl continues to take 250 count, of the 25,000 IU strength softgels in a dose of 125 softgels twice daily. Her Vitamin D3 level remains the same. I’m happy to report that she has been able to increase the sunflower lecithin up to the recommended dose of six softgels twice daily, with no stomach distress. This is important as it will increase the rate of removal of toxins and necrotic matter from her body.

Here is another look at Cheryl’s dosage levels chart.

CANCER 101

We have discussed a couple of things so far about how cancer starts and proceeds. Let’s review a bit.

Capehart Cancer Formula

(CA = FRG ≥ X + O + I)© 

Cancer equals free radical growth greater than or equal to X, with X being an individual’s tolerance level for said growth.

When free radical growth reaches the threshold for that individual, oxidation, decay, sets in.

As free radicals continue to proliferate and the decay spreads, the body sets off inflammation. If nothing is done to stop the free radical growth, inflammation will continue over time without abating, until it turns into chronic inflammation.

Chronic inflammation is the last step before any cancer. (Shacter, E., PhD., Weitzman, S., MD, (2002) Journal of Oncology Cancer Network, “Chronic Inflammation and Cancer.” http://www.cancernetwork.com/review-article/chronic-inflammation-and-cancer#sthash.A96sQUUT.dpuf)

Free Radicals

We know we can’t avoid free radicals, that we could sit in a sterile room doing nothing and still create free radicals. If you live in an oxygen based environment, you are going to have free radicals. As long as their growth does not reach “X threshold” and overwhelm the body’s defenses, you are safe.

But where do free radicals come from in the first place?

A cell contains two electrons, enclosed inside it, safe and sound. If you drop a hammer on your big toe and effect an injury, you will damage the outer shell of many cells. Once a shell is damaged, it allows the two electrons inside to escape to the outside. The minute these electrons leave the cell’s shell, they become free radicals. A free radical then is an unstable single electron that results from injury to a cell.

“A free radical is an atom…that has an unpaired electron and is therefore unstable and highly reactive.” “Atoms And Elements” http://www.english-online.at/science/atoms-and-elements/atoms-and-important-chemical-elements.htm.

The first thing the two free radicals do upon escaping their cell is attack the nearest healthy cell. They want to steal an electron from a healthy cell so they can become whole again. But all they actually do is damage the healthy cell, and thereby create two more free radicals from every cell they attack. (A free radical cannot hook up with another free radical.) The newly created free radicals continue this process and a cascade occurs where free radical growth becomes exponential.

This cascade leads to massive cellular damage, and cellular mutations like cancer. This process is so fast that free radical growth can exceed millions per second. It is this cascade that leads to oxidation, chronic inflammation, and cancer. (Ibid.)___________________________________________________________

How a simple injury can lead to an inflammation based disease like cancer

toe injury damage to cells in the toe leads to creation of free radicals too many free radicals leads to oxidation and decay throughout the body decay triggers inflammation simple inflammation morphs into chronic inflammation without enough anti-oxidant intake

any cancer

chronic inflammation can lead to

any inflammation based disease

___________________________________________________________

“If free radicals overwhelm the body’s ability to regulate them, a condition known as oxidative stress ensues. Free radicals thus adversely alter lipids, proteins, and DNA and trigger a number of human diseases.….” (Lobo, V., Patil, A., Phatak, A., Chandra, N. (2010) Pharmacogn Review, “Free Radicals, Antioxidants And Functional Foods: Impact on Human Health” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3249911/)

We can see then how cancer and any other inflammation based disorder begin with free radicals. The final step of chronic inflammation sets the stage for any type of cancer anywhere in the body. Therefore, it follows that if you can control free radicals, you can also avoid any disease associated with inflammation, including cancer.

Please stay tuned and let us hear from you if you have comments or questions. In the next blog I will explain exactly why anti-oxidants generally, and beta carotene specifically, can cure and prevent any cancer.

SOME INTERESTING DEVELOPMENTS THIS LAST WEEK SEEM TO INDICATE THAT THE NATURAL CANCER TREATMENT IS WORKING

Cheryl’s flu is gone. It left quickly after she upped her L-Lysine dosage.

SOME PERSONAL OBSERVATIONS FROM CHERYL 

Pain

In the last blog I said that Cheryl was having no pain, and assumed that there is no pain with certain cancers until they start poking at you. But this week she is reporting an intermittent “achy” pain in the left breast where the tumor is located. The pain is bad enough at times that she has to take ibuprophen. Still, on some days she is pain free.

The Tumor

The tumor sits directly behind Cheryl’s nipple. When she was first diagnosed and tried to feel that spot, it felt like nothing was there. When the tumor area was touched, it felt like normal tissue. Cheryl could not feel a lump or anything out of the ordinary. When she feels the same area now where the tumor is supposed to be, she says it feels like a hollow space, like something is missing or has been removed. She believes that something is her tumor.

One of the things beta carotene does is shrink tumors, while lecithin helps remove the necrotic tissue from the body. It appears that the enormous doses of beta carotene that Cheryl is taking are breaking up her tumor. We are assuming that the pain is coming from the process of the necrotic tissue separating from the healthy tissue in preparation for removal.

Dose Levels

Cheryl continues to take 250 count, of the 25,000 IU strength softgels in a dose of 125 softgels twice daily. Her Vitamin D3 level remains the same. She is still not able to take large doses of sunflower lecithin without experiencing grave stomach distress.

Note: In addition to the blockage in the milk duct that we discussed in Entry 2, Cheryl also has a blockage between her stomach and gallbladder. This might be a reason for her ongoing digestive complaints, which she had even before the cancer discovery.

Her morning lecithin dose doesn’t bother her. Only the evening dose causes distress, so we have eliminated that dose entirely. Now she is taking only the morning dose, and I will keep her at this level for the duration. It seems to be working to eliminate necrotic wastes, and I don’t want to add any physical distress to what she is already feeling.

Here is another look at Cheryl’s dosage levels chart.

Regularity 

Cheryl continues to be very regular, having three to four bowel movements a day, and moving plenty of product each time. As she continues to put out much more than she is putting in, we are attributing the additional quantity to the removal of necrotic tissue and other organic wastes.

Appetite

Cheryl is still mostly living on chicken noodle soup, saltines, and protein shakes. She has been able to add eggs to her diet, and eats them two at a time, scrambled, about three times a week.

CANCER 101

Note: Ordinarily I do not cite references. My conclusions about healing the body are my own. But for cancer, since it is so hard to believe there is a safe easy cure available right now, I am listing citations. I do this now because I want to show you that this information is part of the mainstream. The only thing new is my interpretation of it. My hope is that you can agree on that interpretation after sufficient explanation. My interpretation is that anti-oxidants generally, and beta carotene specifically, will cure cancer when taken in significant doses.

Chronic Inflammation Directly Precedes Cancer

In the last blog we established two things: (1) that according to the medical industry, chronic inflammation is the last stop before cancer flares anywhere in the body. (Shacter, E., PhD., Weitzman, S., MD, (2002) Journal of Oncology Cancer Network, “Chronic Inflammation and Cancer.” http://www.cancernetwork.com/review-article/chronic-inflammation-and-cancer#sthash.A96sQUUT.dpuf) That also means that inflammation is the precursor to other “inflammation based” diseases as well. (Ibid.)

Free Radicals

And (2), that free radicals are constantly proliferating inside you no matter how careful you are about your health. “Free radical formation occurs continuously in the cells as a consequence of both enzymatic and non-enzymatic reactions.” (Lobo, V., Patil, A., Phatak, A., Chandra, N. (2010) Pharmacogn Review, “Free Radicals, Antioxidants And Functional Foods: Impact on Human Health.” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3249911/)

This means there is no way to avoid free radicals. You could sit in a sterile room doing nothing and you would still create free radicals. A few free radicals are nothing to worry about. Everyone is walking around with a sizable population in their body. If you breathe oxygen, you are going to have free radicals. As long as their growth does not overwhelm the body’s defenses you are safe.

Other simple life actions will also create free radicals:

eating a sandwich • getting an x-ray • sustaining an injury • getting an infection • pollutant exposure • poor diet with not enough anti-oxidants • working a stressful job • exercising • making love • taking your prescription drugs • radiation exposure • pesticide exposure • and other factors that damage cells

Since you are constantly bombarded by free radicals, your body is good at coping with them as long as their growth level remains low enough and does not reach an individual’s tolerance level. It can also handle them if you take enough anti-oxidants in food and supplement form to contain free radical growth.

Oxidation 

But if free radical growth exceeds an individual’s capacity to control it, a condition of decay sets in that is called oxidation. If you cut an avocado and leave it on the counter it will begin to turn brown. The longer it is there, the darker and more rotten it will become. If you left it there long enough you wouldn’t be able to recognize it as an avocado any more. That spoilage and rot are the work of free radicals and oxidation. The same thing can happen inside your body.

Note: If you were to sprinkle a bit of lemon or lime juice over the avocado it would greatly slow down spoilage, because lemon is an anti-oxidant and prevents free radical growth on the avocado. It and other anti-oxidants do the same thing inside your body.

“A balance between free radicals and antioxidants is necessary for proper physiological function. If free radicals overwhelm the body’s ability to regulate them, a condition known as oxidative stress ensues. Free radicals thus adversely alter lipids, proteins, and DNA and trigger a number of human diseases. Hence, application of an external source of antioxidants can assist in coping with this oxidative stress…. Thus, the search for effective, nontoxic natural compounds with antioxidative activity has been intensified in recent years.” (Lobo, V., Patil, A., Phatak, A., Chandra, N. (2010) Pharmacogn Review, “Free Radicals, Antioxidants And Functional Foods: Impact on Human Health” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3249911/)

“Free radicals and antioxidants have become commonly used terms in modern discussions of disease mechanisms,” as there are so many diseases that fall prey to that process. (Aruoma, OI., (1994), Food Chemistry Toxicology, “Nutrition And Health Aspects of Free Radicals And Antioxidants.”)

Capehart Cancer Formula

Let’s look at this information again in relation to my cancer formula:

(CA = FRG ≥ X + O + I)©

Cancer equals free radical growth greater than or equal to X, with X being your individual tolerance level for that growth. Plus oxidation, plus inflammation.

We can see therefore that cancer begins with free radicals, as they are the first step down the road that ends with inflammation. The final step of chronic inflammation sets the stage for an outbreak of any type of cancer anywhere in the body.

Please stay tuned and let us hear from you if you have comments or questions.
