There are few people who don’t face some sort of hair trauma. Hence the term “bad hair day,” indicating that something bad has happened besides messy tresses.

Hair loss can be life altering in a literal sense, because hair is a significant part of our personal identity. When it goes, or is impaired in some way, we also suffer emotional loss that can affect us on many levels. Hair loss may even change how we interact with others, which can then lead to other harms.    

I developed a stress-related case of Alopecia Areata my first year of law school. I had never felt that kind of unrelenting anxiety before, and not since I graduated.

The classes were large in number, a hundred students on average. Held in towering classrooms of old wood and polished rock, with tall cathedral-like windows. The solemnity of a medieval place of worship. And you left class each day humbled, but enlightened.   

Whenever a professor paused and glanced down at the seating chart that held our names and photos, hearts froze. As did bodies. You could hear the proverbial pin while we waited. Don’t pick me, a silent mantra prayed by all except the looniest.

If your name was called your stomach fisted. You cleared your throat and girded your loins for a challenging ten minutes of forced discourse called the Socratic Method. Longer, if you said something naive that displeased them. Your tormentor would then move across the rows to their next victim, leaving you feeling mentally whipped.   

With so many rows, unless you sat up front—which I never did for obvious reasons, you were looking at the backs of a lot of worried heads. I noticed two things happening to those heads a couple of weeks into the first semester. Hair was turning grey, and bald spots were sprouting—some dime-sized, some much larger.

One morning I was washing my hair and found three, round, larger-than-a-quarter spots on my scalp. I hadn’t seen clumps of hair, but there was nothing under my fingertips but exposed skin. The spots seemed to have developed overnight.

I was terrified. You don’t know if it’s going to stop or keep on going until you’ve lost all your hair. I made it through the first year and my hair grew back, but I had to comb over bald spots the whole year.

Since then I’ve learned to successfully treat most Alopecia disorders with nutrition, because most are caused by nutritional deficiencies.

That’s why it’s necessary to continue taking a “maintenance dose” even after hair grows back, or risk a recurrence. Maintenance doses are taken when you’re not sick for the same reason you have to eat every day—to avoid deficiencies that cause sickness, disease, and death.


Alopecia is the umbrella term for hair loss anywhere on the body. Bald spots appear suddenly where hair used to grow and no longer does.


Cause: Auto Immune Imbalance

The term Areata, without further designation, always refers to hair loss on the scalp only. Areata presents as two or more bald spots.

All Areata hair loss disorders are auto-immune conditions, occurring when the immune system attacks hair follicles. Think, friendly fire. It is the most common type of friendly-fire hair loss. It is sometimes referred to as patchy baldness.

Other types of Areata hair loss are discussed further down.


1. AREATA Monocularis

Cause: Auto Immune Imbalance

Monocularis presents as one bald spot on the scalp. This single patch is usually on the larger size, but not always.

2. AREATA Barbae

Cause: Auto Immune Imbalance

Barbae hair loss presents as one or more bald spots and is  limited to the male beard. 

3. AREATA Totalis

Cause: Auto Immune Imbalance

With Totalis, hair loss can occur anywhere on the head, and can lead to complete balding of the scalp, eyebrows, and lashes.

4. AREATA Multicularis

Cause: Auto Immune Imbalance

Multicularis refers to one or more bald spots that occur anywhere on the body, not just the scalp or face.

5. AREATA Universalis

Cause: Auto Immune Imbalance

Universalis can affect the body’s entire epidermis, leaving the subject completely hairless from head to toe. This is the most severe case of Areata hair loss. It is also very rare, presenting in only ten in one million.  


Cause: Inflammation and Subsequent Scarring of Follicles

Cicatricial hair loss arises from inflammation of the hair follicle. As the inflammation heals it leaves behind scarring, which destroys the follicle over time. Cicatricial is often referred to as Scarring Alopecia.

Scarring prevents the follicles from receiving nutrients from the blood stream and expelling built up toxins, because nothing can get through the scar tissue. Giving the follicles no life support. This is a disastrous combination that kills the follicles.  

A Note On Inflammation: The body can handle reasonable amounts of it. But in excess, inflammation can kill us. It depends on the individual as to where it will show up, but it’s all the same creature.

For example:

Inflammation in nerve endings can lead to multiple sclerosis; Inflammation in soft tissue and bone can lead to cancer; Inflammation in the lower intestines can lead to Crohn’s Disease; Inflammation in the lungs can lead to asthma.  

Inflammation in the hair follicle can lead to baldness. And so forth.

An obvious conclusion would be that all you have to do to stop these diseases is stop inflammation. But that’s for another blog.

Almost half the diseases identified are due to uncontrolled inflammation. All are treatable with nutrition.


Cause: Rough Handling That Puts Too Much Stress On Hair

Traction hair loss is caused by careless behavior in the way you address your hair. Hair is not indestructible. Neither are hair follicles.

If you’re rough in the way you handle your hair, pulling on it or stretching it or brushing hard, you can destroy the follicle. When a follicle dies no hair can grow out of it again. This abuse can also cause inflammation that accelerates the hair loss.  

Follicles can also become stressed by certain hairstyles that traumatize them, like wearing a tight ponytail or bun for long periods.

Other hairstyles like weaves and hair extensions, that make the follicle take on more weight than it can handle, can also damage and destroy it. Rotating hairstyles helps protect your follicles from Traction and let’s you still be hair fashionable.

Be gentle when you work with your hair. When you wash it, don’t dry it and your scalp with vigorous rubbing with a towel. Instead, pat and squeeze gently.

If you’re trying to detangle your hair, use a detangler like Pantene Leave-In Conditioner, to make brushing it out easier.

Hair is most vulnerable to breakage when it’s wet, so be especially careful when trying to brush or comb it right after it’s been washed.


Cause: Hormonal Imbalance

Androgenic hair loss is commonly known as male or female pattern baldness.

In women, complete baldness is rare. But you will notice a widening of a part, accompanied by overall thinning of the hair. In men the condition can lead to partial or total baldness.

Nutrition cannot help this type of Alopecia.


In this instance, the following schedule is both crisis dose and maintenance dose. So it basically won’t change when your hair grows back. Except for Bee Pollen, you should continue these same amounts on a daily basis.

What matters in maintaining good health is what you do the majority of the time. You don’t have to be a saint, but try hard to make sure you don’t miss more than three to four day’s doses per month.


You can purchase Bee Pollen in whole granules or caplets. It will calm down the immune system, balance it, so that it stops attacking the hair follicles. Bee pollen in any form should not cause or worsen allergies in those with hay fever.

Note: Thirty days after you consider your hair to be grown back, cut your Bee Pollen dosage in half by eliminating the evening dose. Reinstate the evening dose if hair loss starts up again. Do not decrease the dosages of the other supplements.

Whole granules can be mixed with a hot liquid like tea, or in a blender drink to dissolve them. Even sprinkled whole over cereals or grains.

Caplets can be swallowed or mixed with a blender drink.


Breakfast: 5,000 mg (1 heaping tsp of whole granules, or 5 caplets)

Dinner: 5,000 mg (1 heaping tsp of whole granules, or 5 caplets)

Suggested Brand & Strength

Whole granules: Y. S. Eco Bee Farms; 5,000 mgs per heaping tsp

Caplets: Puritan’s Pride #4390; 1000 mg per caplet



Folic acid is part of the B Complex-100 formula, a mixture of all the B vitamins. Once bee pollen balances the immune system, folic acid will start hair growing again. You can’t believe how effective it is in strengthening hair and making it grow.

Besides helping Alopecia disorders, Folic Acid will stimulate growth where hair grows intolerably slow. Or where hair grows only a few inches long before it stops and sits there. If you’ve dreamed of long hair but haven’t been able to grow it, folic acid might be your answer.

You need a strong dose of Folic Acid on a regular basis to get your hair to grow in earnest. When you stop taking it you notice the difference in just days.

The more folic acid you take, the faster your hair will grow, up to a point. I’ve set the dosage at a level to give you good hair growth but not cause a deficiency in other B Complex elements. 

If the dosage I’ve set doesn’t show the results I’ve promised, it  means you need to increase your dose slowly over time. Adding one tablet every few days until you see growth. When you reach that point, level off and make that amount your maintenance dose.

The folic acid I recommend comes in very small tablets. Easy to swallow several at a time. Or mix into a blender drink.


Breakfast: 16,000 mcg (20 tiny tablets)                                        

Dinner: 16,000 mcg (20 tiny tablets)

Suggested Brand & Strength

Puritan’s Pride #2845; 800 mcg per tablet



Biotin is also part of the B Complex-100 formula. It is used in many hair and nail improvement products. Here it is used as a support to the main hair growth supplement, folic acid.


Breakfast: 5,000 I.U. (1 softgel)

Dinner: 5,000 I.U. (1 softgel)

Suggested Brand & Strength

Puritan’s Pride #29634; 5,000 I.U. per softgel


4. B COMPLEX-100

B complex-100 contains all the B vitamin elements, plus more:

Thiamine/B-1, Riboflavin/B-2, Niacin/B-3, Pyridoxine/B-6, Cyanocobalamin/B-12, Folic Acid, Biotin, Pantothenic Acid, and PABA. Plus, Choline and Inositol.

When you take any element of the Complex over time, like Folic Acid or Biotin, you have to supplement small amounts of the entire complex to ensure you don’t drain others out and cause a different deficiency. The elements in B complex work together; too much of one over time will deplete others.


Breakfast: 100 mg (1 capsule)

Dinner: 100 mg (1 capsule)

Suggested Brand & Strength

Solaray Vegcaps; 100 mg per capsule



Beta carotene destroys inflammation. No matter how severe it is. If your follicles are under attack by the immune system, it means additional inflammation is occurring in various parts of your body.

Remember, one form of Alopecia (Cicatricial) is caused solely by inflammation.


Breakfast: 187.5 mg (25 small softgels)

Dinner: 187.5 mg (25 small softgels)

Suggested Brand & Strength

Puritan’s Pride #1223; 7.5 mg/25,000 I.U. per softgel; The softgels are small and easy to swallow.


Vitamin D3 is a more potent type of Vitamin D. It is a support vitamin to Beta Carotene. The body needs Vitamin D3 to properly assimilate Beta Carotene. If you take large amounts of Beta Carotene without Vitamin D3 supplementation, you will end up with a Vitamin D3 deficiency.


Breakfast: 5,000 I.U. (1 softgel)

Dinner: 5,000 I.U. (1 softgel)

Suggested Brand & Strength

Puritan’s Pride #19377; 5,000 I.U. per softgel


Note: Try to stop thinking of food supplements as “pills,” which suggests medicine. Rather, think of them as what they are, “concentrated nutrition.” Food, in other words.

CATEGORY: 5: Viruses

RECOMMENDED SUPPLEMENT: L-Lysine (Lysine for short)

Here We Go Again

Covid 19, lambda, delta, theta, omicron; it’s getting harder to keep the virus’s mutations straight in our minds. Scientists scurry to develop new vaccines, or reintroduce a prior vaccine as a “booster.”

A booster gives you more of what maybe didn’t work well enough in the first place, as many people infected with omicron and other variants were fully vaccinated and boostered.

A virus’s ability to mutate is its deadliest asset and what keeps it infecting new hosts. It’s also what prevents vaccines from being one hundred percent effective.

Yet, vaccines are vital to our good health. They have confined diseases such as polio, tetanus, measles, hepatitis, whooping cough, and influenza, since the first vaccine was created in 1796. A physician collected drops of cowpox abscess—small pox in humans—from a sick woman, and scratched them on the arm of a boy to prevent the disease.

The Worst May Not Be Behind Us

We seem to think the worst is over, that any variant won’t be as destructive as the mother virus. But there is no reason this has to be true.  

Consider this: Sometimes children aren’t as smart as their parents. Sometimes they have equal intelligence. But every so often a couple with average intelligence produces a bona fide prodigy, a lot smarter than the parents and more capable.

Likewise, some covid “offspring” will be weaker than the mother virus, as perhaps omicron will turn out to be. Still, there is nothing to say that a variant stronger than the original covid 19, responsible for 5.43 million deaths worldwide, will not present.

The CDC says that new covid variants will continue to appear, so the assumption that covid, and lockdowns, and isolation, could still be with us years from now is not an unreasonable one.

How much more death and misery must we witness before realizing that relying solely on vaccines and altered social behaviors can’t do it alone?

And it takes too long. As time passes more people die. Yes, people are still dying from covid 19 and its progeny. In the time it takes you to read this blog, approximately 78 people will die somewhere in the world from covid. Deaths that amino acid Lysine could prevent.

The solution is simple: Add Lysine to the current protocol to stop covid and all its variants. In partnership with a vaccine, Lysine supplementation would make a vaccine more effective, certainly eliminate the need for boosters.

For those who refuse vaccines, Lysine supplementation would give them full protection, if they have the discipline to take it every day. Without fail, because Lysine can only protect you from becoming a covid host if it is present continually in your system.  

All Viruses Are Related To Each Other By A Common Factor

Think of viruses as cousins in the same large family. In some ways they are different, but in others they are exactly the same. One familial trait that all viruses have in common is a short life span of 10-14 hours for each single generation.

Anything a virus wants to do has to be done within this time window, including making and keeping a host body sick. Since 10-14 hours is the extent of a virus’s existence, it will die outright after this time period unless certain requirements are met.

The short life makes all viruses vulnerable in the same manner and for the same reason, as the first thing such a miniscule life demands is that each generation quickly get to the breeding process. Otherwise, it cannot continue an infection inside a host once this time period has ended.

Think about it: 10-14 hours is enough time to initially infect a host, but it is not enough time to keep the host sick. For that, succeeding generations have to follow within the same host. 

Compare a virus’s life of 10-14 hours to that of the global average of 72.6 years for humans. We are clearly the dominant species, but also clear is that we can be swiftly brought down by a virus’s ability to work in tandem between succeeding generations. 

Once a virus enters a host, it causes initial symptoms that announce its presence. But if that start-up generation cannot breed a second, third-and-on generation, the virus will die, and the host will recover.

There still might be days more devoted to full recovery from the physical damage already done, but a virus loses its effectiveness to do additional harm within 10-14 hours if the next generation fails to develop.

So, the common trait of a short existence is a virus’s Achilles heel, and the easiest way to kill it outright is to attack it through this shared vulnerability.

Lysine Is The Miraculous Slayer of Viruses

Lysine supplementation is an effective method for preventing infections and curing a host, because Lysine prevents a virus from producing ongoing generations of itself.

Lysine is a logical approach to handling viral infections. It is directly causative, non-intrusive, inexpensive, and readily available around the world.

Lysine renders a virus essentially sterile and unable to “procreate.” Without a new generation being “born,” a virus will die within 10-14 hours, because that is as long as one generation can live on its own inside a host.  

Lysine Works By Preventing L-Arginine From Assisting A Virus To Make A New Generation

It is established that Lysine supplementation will stop a virus and prevent ongoing infection by its use. However, for reasons that make no sense in evolutionary terms, another amino acid, Arginine, will actually assist a virus to make the all important new generations, and by so doing, help it to keep the host sick, and at times to kill it.

The relationship between Arginine and a virus is so intimate that a virus cannot survive in a host without its help in making new generations. That means no Arginine, no new generation, no viral infection.

Note: Lysine and Arginine are in many of the foods we eat regularly, if not several times a day. There is no escaping either of these amino acids in a healthy diet, and they are both vital to the body’s well being. The key is to make sure there is enough Lysine in your system through Lysine supplementation. Otherwise, you leave inside you a dark little enemy unopposed, just waiting to give assistance to a virus. Never forget, this trait vulnerability applies to any virus, because they all live from 10-14 hours, and they all have to replicate a new generation within that time period.

Lysine And Arginine Are Engaged In An Adversarial Relationship That Lysine Dominates Physically

Lysine stops a virus from making a host sick. Arginine does the opposite, helps the same virus to make and keep a host sick. But Lysine holds all the power in this struggle for dominance inside a host. You have only to take Lysine supplementation to achieve its benefits and outwit a virus.

Here’s how it works

Both of these amino acids travel into and through your system via the same “channel.” When they are both in the channel, Lysine dominates it and prevents Arginine from passing through. Think of a seven foot, 300-pound bouncer named Lysine, outside a club with a clipboard. Think of Arginine as an uninvited wanna-be guest.

If Arginine can’t get through the channel, it is powerless to help a virus create new generations. The virus will then die within 10-14 hours. This is true for any virus. True for covid. True for them all.

The Process

1. A virus attacks the host body.

2. if Arginine is present in the “channel,” it immediately provides the virus with a vital missing element it needs to create a new generation.  

3. If Lysine is present in the “channel” it blocks Arginine’s entry and ability to help the virus.

4. Without help from Arginine in creating a new generation, the virus dies and the host recovers quickly, no matter the origin or variant of the virus.

Note: According to the CDC, once a virus is destroyed in the host, it can leave behind a small amount of proto-matter that can activate later when the host has recovered and is feeling fine. That is why Lysine should be continued for five days after the host appears recovered.

The following letter was delivered to Mayor Bill de Blasio yesterday at City Hall.

bill de blasio 3


Dear Mr. Mayor,

Thank you for the tremendous job you are doing as the City’s leader in these dangerous, uncertain times. You have shown your true grit and it is remarkable.

I am going to make claims in this letter regarding the current Corona virus/Covid-19 pandemic. You will perhaps be unacquainted with this information but will find it helpful. For the sake of lives that could be saved I ask that you read this letter in its entirety. Nothing more. I thank you for doing so. I have included a few short lines at the end about myself.

There Is A Better Approach Than Waiting For A Vaccine

 Let’s Start With A Comparative Analogy of Effect: 

All life forms have something in common that helps explain how we can quickly defeat Covid-19 virus. They all have a limited span of viability. Crucial to their survival is the ability to make copies of their DNA, to pass it on as they breed new generations. Or in the case of a virus, as they replicate new generations. You could eliminate any species by simply preventing individuals from making copies of themselves, from breeding a new generation of offspring. This can be said for any life form, including Covid-19:  Stop the copy process and you eliminate the life form.

Lucky for us Covid-19, like all viruses, has a short life span: “. . . a generation time of between 10 and 14 hours in cells in tissue culture.” (“Requirement of Arginine for the Replication of Herpes Virus,” Valerie B. M. Inglis, (1967) Bacteriology Department, University of Edinburgh Medical School, Scotland.)

This means that every 10-14 hours there is a chance to stop a virus if you can prevent it from replicating the next generation. If it can be stopped in this time period, it is finished. (Ibid.) The virus will die inside the host body as the last viable generation ends without having made a copy of itself. Without that backup, there is no more virus.

Without the ability to replicate properly, the Covid-19 virus lacks enough of the hereditary basics to pass on instructions for creating the proteins that are vital for birth and survival of a new generation. Like trying to make cherry pie without the cherries.

Now Let’s Look Closer At Two Amino Acids: L-Arginine And L-Lysine:

You’ve heard of bad cholesterol and good cholesterol; one harms you and the other gives great benefit. There is a similar relationship between these amino acids. As it relate to viruses, they are opposing forces; one will harm you, the other will help:

The Harm: Arginine Supports The Spread of Viruses In The Body, Including Covid-19:

“Some evidence suggests that high levels of Arginine can make symptoms of herpes worse, potentially leading to outbreaks or cold sores. This is because the herpes virus needs Arginine to multiply. Also, absorbing more arginine may indirectly cause cold sores by disrupting the body’s balance of Arginine and another amino acid called Lysine. [Lysine] can treat and prevent cold sores, and it shares an absorption pathway with Arginine. If more Arginine is present, the body may not be able to absorb enough Lysine.” (“Which Foods Are High In Arginine?” Medical News Today, Medically reviewed by Katherine Marengo, LDN, RD, specialty in nutrition, on October 4, 2018, Written by Jenna Fletcher.)

(See, Addendum at the end of this blog for a list of foods higher in Arginine than Lysine that should be avoided when you have a virus.)

A clinical study found that “Based on tissue culture studies, it is thought that a Lysine/Arginine balance may affect herpes simplex virus (HSV) expression. Arginine-rich proteins are required for reproduction of HSV, whereas Lysine competitively inhibits their synthesis.” (“Lysine For Herpes Simplex Prophylaxis: A Review of The Evidence,” Integrative Medicine: A Clinician’s Journal, Venthan J. Mailoo, BSc(Hons), MBBS, and Sanketh Rampes, National Institute of Health, Integr Med (Encinitas). 2017 Jun; 16(3): 42–46. PMCID: PMC6419779, PMID: 30881246.)

“HSV-1 requires Arginine . . . in order to grow. Lysine helps prevent the body from absorbing Arginine, making it difficult for HSV-1 to grow and reproduce.” (“Lysine For Cold Sores: Does It Work?” Medical News Today, Medically reviewed by Zara Risoldi Cochrane, PharmD, MS, FASCP on December 17, 2018, Written by Danielle Dresden, Article 324696, March 13, 2019.)

Meaning that Lysine prevents the spread of a virus in the body by preventing Arginine from helping the same virus to breed and grow, and therefore stopping it from replicating a new generation.

The Help: Lysine Blocks Arginine, Prevents Virus Replication, And Lowers Infection Rate:

Lysine helps by impeding all viruses, stopping Arginine from helping any of them, including corona. “[Lysine] hampers the activity of Arginine, an amino acid that promotes the growth of herpes simplex virus. This suggests that increasing Lysine intake might work against HSV infections.” (“By the way doctor: Does Lysine prevent cold sores?” Harvard Women’s Health Watch, Celeste Robb-Nicholson, Former M.D. Editor-in-Chief.)

The Covid-19 virus is simply unable to make a viable copy of itself as long as there are sufficient amounts of Lysine in the body, saturating the tissue for a specified time period. The necessary levels are higher than those used in any clinical trials of Lysine.

Lysine will work as a preventive for someone not tested positive. It will end Covid-19 even if the subject is in the full throes of the disease when it’s first taken. Naturally the bout will weaken a subject, who won’t feel completely better for a couple of days. But the symptoms will abate quickly. Proper dosage is essential for recovery.

I shared the info about using Lysine to prevent Covid-19 virus with my vet at Westside Veterinary in Manhattan. She took to the idea immediately, saying that it made sense because vets routinely use it to treat animals with herpes. She reasoned that since it works on one virus it might work on another. That was a correct intuitive guess, and she is now taking it.

There Are Studies That Show Lysine Works On Herpes Simplex Virus In Humans As Well:

There was a recent study with the primary objective, “To summarize the research evidence for use of Lysine to prevent herpes simplex virus disease recurrence, a use not widely recognized by doctors . . . .” (“Lysine For Herpes Simplex Prophylaxis: A Review of The Evidence.”)

In this study oral Lysine supplements were taken daily. The results were that in doses of less than one gram daily, Lysine was ineffective. However, given “in excess of three grams daily, there was improvement to patients’ subjective experience of the disease.” (Ibid.) The problem with this study and all Lysine research is that they didn’t use high enough doses to have a real effect on the disease. It takes a specific threshold of Lysine saturation to be able to destroy a virus’s ability to replicate and infect.

“As a result, Lysine supplements may reduce the number and frequency of cold sore outbreaks, for which the herpes simplex type-1 is responsible . . . . It can also help with the treatment of genital herpes. Some sources recommend that people with a history of herpes infections take 1,000-3,000 mgs of Lysine supplements a day.” (Lysine For Cold Sores: Does It Work?)

Lysine Has The Ability To Stop The Covid-19 Pandemic In 30 Days If Administered Properly:

Lysine is an essential amino acid that renders Covid-19 sterile and unable to proceed with its attack. Lysine is “essential” because your body can’t produce it, and you must ingest sufficient amounts through food and supplementation. It is easily available and inexpensive as an oral supplement. One of the best vitamin companies in the U.S. is located in upstate New York. Puritan’s Pride could be called upon to concentrate major efforts on producing Lysine until the crisis is over.

(See Addendum at the end of this blog for a list of foods higher in Lysine than Arginine that help slow down a virus’s growth.)

Lysine can be used without harm by all—child, adult, elderly, asymptomatic, prior condition. It is easy on the stomach and can be administered orally or by drip. It won’t interact harmfully with other medications. It is a simple nutritional supplement bought as you would food, without a prescription. I’ve seen it used safely by people all over the world. It is a substance the body readily recognizes and accepts without rejection, because Lysine is only nutrition, but more powerful than any drug against Covid-19.

Some Google research shows side effects listed from diarrhea to kidney inflammation, but this is inaccurate. “Doses of up to 3 grams a day [of Lysine] are thought to be harmless, as oral toxicity has not occurred in humans.” (“Lysine For Herpes Simplex Prophylaxis: A Review of The Evidence.”) The only side effect of taking a therapeutic crisis dose is runny bowels. Not true diarrhea in that you are having to run to the bathroom all the time. It’s just that when you do have to go, the product will be loose.

Lysine Works On Other Viruses; It Will Work On Covid-19

Clearly, physicians and medical researchers have decided there is evidence Lysine is good for dealing with some viruses, like those that cause mouth sores and genital herpes, but they have been unable to make the intellectual leap to understand that Lysine works on other viruses just as well. It has never even occurred to them to try Lysine on Covid-19. Much to the world’s detriment.

There has been speculation for some time regarding Lysine’s ability to effectively treat and control any virus. “There may be benefits that have not yet been proven through research. Lysine may slow or stop the growth of [all] viruses. It may protect against sexual transmission of the herpes virus. It may prevent cold sores (herpes sores) from coming back . . . .” (“Health Encyclopedia, Lysine,” University of Rochester Medical Center, Medically reviewed by Diane Horowitz, MD; Raymond Kent Turley, BSN MSN, RN, and Rita Sather, RN.)

I worry Mayor that when you run this past your health commissioners, which I know you must, they will dismiss this information as not relevant, when it is the answer to our global nightmare. They will point to the fact that I extrapolate from research about herpes to support claims about a new virus. They will tell you these viruses are unalike and can’t be lumped together and treated the same. They will point to the fact that there are no clinical trials to support exactly what I say here.

It seems to me that doctors, the medical industry generally, have lost the ability to think and strategize about a disease. They sit and wait obediently for clinical trial results before proceeding. Maybe it’s the high cost of negligence lawsuits and malpractice insurance that has made them so fearful, but physicians are loath to try anything new, to even think about new ways independent of what they are told by clinical trials.

Trials are fine, but doctors can’t abandon the use of thought, imagination, and professional analysis to solve new health problems like Covid-19. This lack of curiosity is one reason Covid-19 managed to get ahead of us. Doctors have to open their minds to new ideas, maybe even come up with a few on their own. Waiting for pharmaceutical trial results without also exploring other ideas was addressed by a Lysine study:

“Lysine supplementation is not expected to significantly improve public health or generate sufficient profit to attract the funding required for randomized controlled trials. There is therefore a bias in research toward pharmaceutical as opposed to nutritional management of herpes simplex. This bias may extend to other diseases that are affected by nutritional imbalance, and it transfers power from patients to pharmaceutical companies.” (“Lysine For Herpes Simplex Prophylaxis: A Review of The Evidence.”)

This elevation of the profit margin over the well being of patients is another reason Covid-19 managed to get ahead of us. It can be said now that but for that lack of research, Lysine could have been available to prevent many deaths much sooner. (Ibid.)

Above I cite to a clinical trial where patients given in excess of 3000 mg of Lysine daily reported they felt better. The question then becomes: Why did they drop it there? If it was found that 3000 mg daily worked better than 1000 mg daily, why didn’t they try 5,000 mg daily? They found confirmed improvement by increasing the dosages; why not continue that therapy and see what could actually be cured with nutrition? (“Lysine For Herpes Simplex Prophylaxis: A Review of The Evidence.”)

The answer is because there is no money in nutritional supplement research. (Ibid.) Add that to doctors’ intellectual paralysis when confronted with new information not specifically supported by clinical trials, and you have preventable disasters like Covid-19.

Here is an email from an RN in Chicago that sheds more light on the fact that doctors have continually failed to heed new information right in front of them. She was on the front line and self-quarantined after she came down with Covid-19 symptoms two weeks after testing negative. It took her five days to feel like herself again on Lysine:

“I have reached out to many colleagues. I don’t understand why no one will listen or even try L-Lysine. Even though I am a nurse unfortunately I don’t hold much weight . . . . I’m thinking of leaving the profession entirely due to most of what I’ve said [in these emails] . . . . I will definitely try to reach out more . . . . Your treatment can save lives. It worked for me.”

The research cited herein is public domain. If I can find it, so can Dr. Fauci, but since there are no clinical trials that support my exact conclusions they will be dismissed. There is enough research available and supported to suggest to the medical industry that it should be working with Lysine. I do not mean to cast dispersion, but there would be many fewer deaths from Covid-19 if Lysine were made accessible to everyone. Our lives would not be in such turmoil now.

Let’s Recap:

1. There is evidence certain viruses can’t replicate and grow without the amino acid Arginine.

2. There is evidence the amino acid Lysine blocks Arginine from providing this assistance to certain viruses.

3. There is evidence Lysine is effective on certain viruses, such as those that cause cold sores and genital herpes.

4. There is evidence higher doses of Lysine work better on certain viruses than lower doses.

5. There is evidence Lysine is not toxic when taken orally in excess of 3000 mg daily.

6. There is evidence of an industry-wide bias against clinical trials for nutritional supplements.

7. There is evidence this bias stems from the low profit margin of nutritional-supplement research, simple greed.

8. There is evidence this greed bias prevents Lysine from being fully vetted as a treatment for Covid-19, despite its effectiveness against certain other viruses.

9. There is evidence it’s highly possible Lysine will also work on Covid-19 when administered correctly.

10. There is enough evidence of Lysine’s success treating certain viruses to warrant review of it’s efficacy in treating Covid-19.

11. Therefore, based on the above, Lysine should be considered for those with Covid-19.

I wrote a blog on Covid-19 on February 13, predicting where we are now, because I knew that without Lysine there was no hope we would stop the disease. I further predict it could take years to wipe out—it will keep bouncing back—if we don’t try more effective measures now. “Viruses are able to effectively hide from the immune system, and reactivate just enough to start up a new generation.” (www.cdc.com)

I write to you, Mayor, because you are at the epicenter. I also write because I have watched you, and you are a steadfast man with strong values who can hold his ground when he believes in something. And do it without rancor or anger or alienation. You are also a thinker. That’s what we need now more than ever. Someone who can think independent of the crowd, someone who can break from the norm to forge a new path. Even one untried. We need intellect now, not rote.

If there is any chance to save lives with this therapy, how can we not at least try it? Lysine won’t hurt anyone—the worst it could do is not work—so why not give it a chance? I hope this letter helps you understand that with this information you now stand, literally, one degree from saving the world. What New York City does successfully the world will follow. I beg you to investigate more with your own mind. This crisis never should have happened.

Call me if you like. Let me explain further. I can answer any questions you have. Dr Fauci says, “There is no magic bullet that can end this pandemic.” He’s wrong Mayor, and just as misinformed as the others. Lysine is the answer.

CATEGORY: 5: Viruses



cramped in group of health workers

Wake up people. The corona virus can kill even the young!

The death toll from the most recent flu savaging continues to rise. Some are trapped in quarantine whether they’re sick or not. Others survive by hunkering down and suffering through. And it will get worse before it gets better. I haven’t had the flu in decades, but I remember it as being a hellish experience.

Every winter we go through this. Newer, often more deadly, flu strains strike, and people suffer and die. Needlessly. Meanwhile, limited resources are allotted to finding new anti-virals and vaccines to combat the constant mutations that flu presents.

Rather than engineer new drugs each year to fight the flu, a better idea is to use L-Lysine, an amino acid and simple food supplement that will stop corona virus by preventing it from replicating inside your body.

Corona virus infects you by attaching to your cells and thereby spreading its genetic material. Since the “life span” of a virus, the amount of time it is viable, is limited, it takes succeeding “generations” to make you sick and keep you infected. That way, as one generation dies, another is being born.

Viruses that cause the flu are in a sense living entities that crave life and will fight for it much as we would. Their compulsion is to breed and reproduce others like themselves, just like us. They do this to survive and pass on DNA to the next generation. They have to make copies of themselves for future use.


To stop corona virus the focus must be on stopping it from making those copies, from replicating a new generation of itself. If you do that you can stop it within hours.

You see, without the ability to replicate properly, a virus lacks adequate hereditary basics to pass on instructions for creating proteins vital for the birth and survival of a new generation. Like trying to make cherry pie without the cherries. The virus will simply be unable to make a viable copy of itself, as long as there are sufficient amounts of L-Lysine in your system, saturating your tissue.

Your body will eventually fight off succeeding generations until the virus is expelled, but not before you’ve suffered through the body aches, muscle pain, fever, cough, fiery sore throat, runny and/or stuffy nose, fatigue, headache, and worse.


L-Lysine is a simple amino acid, one of the “building blocks” of protein. Natural and benign. It’s interesting that a protein building block for human physiology will actually prevent a virus from building its proteins!

Taken in appropriate doses as soon as possible after you experience symptoms, L-Lysine stops any strain of flu. Taken in advance as a preventive maintenance dose, it will protect you from contracting the flu. If you’re not sick yet, you should start taking a maintenance dose right away to avoid it entirely. (See remedy at a glance charts at the end)

Let’s be clear on this. We label each new strain of flu virus based on many factors. We worry about its origin, strength, and ability to mutate. But the body sees all viruses as essentially the same, and its only job in connection thereto is to fight it off. Something it can easily do with the help of L-Lysine.

The goal is to saturate your tissue with L-Lysine, and keep it saturated until five days after you feel better. The inclination is to stop taking L-Lysine as soon as you feel better. If you do, you give a lingering “generation” the chance to start replicating again, and it can return with renewed vengeance.

L-Lysine is cheap and painless and could be utilized now to stop corona virus and end this misery. Your body’s warning plus your timely response can equal prevention.

I wrote an earlier blog on the flu; it repeats what is said here differently and lists other fundamentals for flu avoidance. https://lynncapehartwellness.com/2011/11/22/blog-24-the-flu/


Besides L-Lysine, there are support supplements that address other problems created by the flu, like (a) Vitamin C+ and Bee Pollen Granules, which are natural immune boosters; Beta Carotene, an anti-inflammatory that eases muscles aches and other body pains; B12, a B Complex element that fights fatigue; and Lecithin, an emulsifier that breaks up and expels the mucus of lung and nose congestion.

You can purchase B12 at Vitaminlife.com.

Never use time released B12; you need the blast of the full dose.

At the crisis levels, L-Lysine will give some people runny bowels. Not true diarrhea where you’re having to run to the bathroom all the time. It’s just that when you do have to go, the product will be watery.

If lecithin softgels are hard for you to swallow, you can use granules in much the same way that you use bee pollen granules, except that lecithin granules won’t dissolve in hot tea; they pretty much need to be utilized in a blender drink, where they can be completely pulverized. One full tablespoon equals 6 of the softgels.

I am retracting my warning about not using Puritan’s Pride soya lecithin. I tried non-GMO sunflower and egg yolk lecithin but was amazed at how ineffective they were. I was trying to treat several conditions that I know to be easily healed with lecithin, to no avail. In desperation and in reliance on my memory of the efficacy of soya lecithin, I returned to using Puritan’s Pride soya lecithin. I was amazed!!! Using only a third of the doses I had tried with the other products, I, and others, got immediate relief…just hours later, when we never did get the complete relief we were expecting using the other lecithins.


I discovered that making sure to take the Puritan’s lecithin after, or during the meal, eliminated the nausea that I experienced when taking it with just juice in the morning. Hopefully this way will help others who experienced nausea as well.

So despite the fact that Puritan’s may use GMO soybeans for their lecithin, their product has the highest emulsification factor and works best on all the conditions for which I have recommended using lecithin. Also, despite my pronouncements against Puritan’s lecithin, you have the best chance of relieving all sorts of blockage conditions like heart disease, blood clot stroke, erectile dysfunction, lung congestion, gout, dementia, and others with their product.

The other products I found to be a waste of money and time when it counted most. If you did get relief from these products you may continue to use them, but know that if you switch back to the higher emulsification Puritan’s product the healing process will go faster and be more complete.

Therefore, please consider returning to Puritan’s soya lecithin if you have to address any blockage problems. I can only vouch for Puritan’s Pride brand, and not any other brand of soya lecithin, which may have a lower emulsification factor, which is what eliminates blockages.

The problem is that if you have blood leakage in your mouth, it means you also have blood leakage elsewhere in your body that you can’t see, such as, in your brain where it can manifest as a brain aneurysm or a “ruptured” blood vessel stroke.

Expanding or collapsed blood vessels are also a sign of weak walls, and show up in your cheeks as rosacea, which is an enlargement or ballooning of blood vessels there, and of course in your legs as varicose veins.

With strong blood vessel walls none of these disorders, including bleeding gums, is possible. If you have sufficient Rutin in your system at all times, your hygienist can poke away in your mouth without a drop of blood showing up. Know that you are in big trouble if your gums bleed with just normal tooth brushing.

It’s a simple concept: Anything that is closed off must have walls.

Consider then the nature of walls, to keep things separated. In your body your blood vessel walls keep your blood from seeping into other tissue and causing damage.

Your arterial system of arteries and capillaries—that take blood away from the heart and distribute it throughout your body, and veins—that return blood to the heart for replenishment, also has walls. It is a closed system.

You will never attain 100 percent non leakage in your arterial system; it’s just something that happens. But with strong arterial walls you can have the barest minimum of leakage.

Rutin is part of the C Complex, which includes Vitamin C, Citrus Bioflavonoid, Rutin, Hesperiden Complex, and sometimes Acerola, Alfalfa, and Barley Grass.

Vitamin C is water soluble, and therefore cannot be stored in your body. Meaning, it washes out of your system everyday and must be replenished everyday. Since you will be taking larger doses of Rutin, which is part of C Complex, you will also need to take a maintenance dose of Vitamin C Complex.

2000 mg

Solgar or Puritan’s Pride #1561  

500 mg

Vitamin C Complex 1000 mg 1000 mg Puritan’s Pride #3140 1000 mg+



If you follow the Quick Glance Chart recommendations and find that you still have bleeding gums, increase each Rutin dose by 500 mg until the condition stops. That level where the bleeding stops will be your best personal maintenance dose.

Summertime is here, and feet are back on display, but they are not usually the prettiest parts of the human form.

beach ocean and two cocktails

One thing that keeps feet out of the “pretty” category is fungal infections of the toenail and the nail bed. These infections result in misshapen nails that can be up to ten times as thick, are hard and brittle, darkly discolored, smelly, and painful. In really bad cases the nail may separate from the bed.


Note: I hate to be the one to tell you this, but did you ever wonder why fungal nails thicken and become hard, brittle, and smelly? That is caused by the poop from the invading fungal microbes, and then their tiny dead bodies as they die off. The organic debris builds up over time and raises the nail away from the bed. That in turn causes pain as the nail is pushed into the surrounding skin.


These symptoms can lead to painful ingrown toenails and people averting their eyes, necessitating a trip to the podiatrist. These microbes can show up in fingernails too, but this blog focuses on toenail fungus. The treatment works as well on fingernails; just use disposable gloves instead of socks to cover the nails.

There is a natural way to control toenail fungus that requires only minimal upkeep and has no side effects. This treatment works faster if you attack the problem both internally and topically with probiotic Acidophilus. You will also need vitamin E oil, or a substitute like baby oil, along with a good metal nail file, and a pair of old socks. Try to get E oil, because it seems to help with softness and pliability over other oils.


Acidophilus is the best probiotic for controlling fungal infections. There’s a little bit of work to the process, but the payoff is big, as it will keep your toenails looking normal without threatening your health.

The common medications available for fighting fungal infections under nails carry with them side effects such as, nausea, stomach pain and cramping, diarrhea, itching rash and hives, and damage to taste buds. There is also a larger danger of harming your liver after protracted use.

Internal Use

For one week only, take one Acidophilus capsule each morning with a cup of water. Take it fifteen minutes before you eat anything. After the week is up, stop taking it internally, and use it only topically as described in the next section.


Supplement Breakfast Brand Strength

(daily for 1 week only)

1 capsule with a cup of water first thing Solaray, with goats milk (can be purchased at vitaminlife.com)  

3 billion count


Mixing Acidophilus For Topical Use

At the same time you begin taking Acidophilus internally do the following:

Always wash your feet and dry thoroughly before you begin.

With a spoon, mix the contents of two Acidophilus capsules with several drops of Vitamin E oil. (You can use another oil like baby oil if you can’t get Vitamin E, but E works best.) You will have to eyeball it until you get used to doing it.

Ideally, you want the mixture to be the consistency of a light paste—runny enough to flow off a spoon onto your toenails, but not so runny that it won’t stay put on the nails. Make sure the mixture completely covers the entire nail surface to the edges and under the top of the nail as well.

You will have to sacrifice one or two pairs of socks to this process. Cut them off below the ankle. After putting a dab of the mixture on each nail and spreading it around, roll the socks back so that you can get your toes in first, then slowly unroll them up your foot. This way will prevent your losing too much of the mixture to the inside of the sock as you pull it on.

You will still need regular maintenance treatments to change the color back and return your toenails to fully normal. To that end, continue using the mixture topically twice a week for three months. After that, once a week should be enough maintenance to keep the fungus away. If it returns, start the treatment over with a week of internal and topical use.

Keep both Acidophilus and Vitamin E oil refrigerated. Note: Puritan’s Pride Vitamin E oil is so pure it can be taken internally.


A Recap of The Steps For Topical Use

Always wash your feet and dry thoroughly each time before you apply the mixture.

First Week:

a. Use the Acidophilus mixture daily for first week, while you are also taking a daily capsule internally. But don’t try to file, cut, or trim your toenails this first week. Leave them alone except for this first step: Wash your feet, apply mixture, put on socks, done.

b. Apply Acidophilus mixture to entire nail surface all the way to the edges and under the toenail at the top. It will run onto the skin around the nail, but don’t worry about that.

c. Leave mixture on for one hour minimum; ideally, apply mixture before retiring and leave it on all night while you sleep.

Second Week And Continuing

This is when you start the twice weekly level that you will continue for three months, before reducing to once a week as maintenance.

a. After washing your feet and drying thoroughly, clean under toenails as best you can.

b. Shave toenail surface with a metal file until it is as thin as a normal toenail, or as close as you can get it. You will not have to do this every time you use the mixture, just this first time to start and as needed thereafter.

c. After shaving the surface, cut and trim the nail, and file the leading edge evenly.

d. Apply Acidophilus mixture to entire nail surface all the way to the edges and under the toenail at the top. It will run onto the skin around the nail, but don’t worry about that.

e. Leave mixture on for one hour minimum; ideally, apply mixture before retiring and leave it on all night while you sleep.


After the first week of use, the Acidophilus will have partially worked its magic. Your toes will be softer, more pliable, and easier to trim. But don’t start cutting yet.

First, use the “sharp” side of a metal nail file to shave down the surface of each affected toenail. You want it to be as thin as an unaffected toenail when you are finished. Clean the file often while you work.

If you use the Acidophilus mixture regularly twice weekly for three months, and then once a week, the fungus and its effects will stay gone. If you don’t use the mixture regularly, surface shaving can still help prevent ingrown toenails and some of the effects of the fungus. Also, shaving will decrease pain and tenderness, because by reducing the nail you are relieving the pressure on the skin bordering it.


Some spots on the foot—the outer edge of the big toe, the ball of the foot, and the heel—can get rough and scratchy. Using an emery board on these spots can quickly smooth them out. Also make sure to use a good hydrating lotion on these same areas to keep them soft and smooth.

Please be nice to each other, and look for my next blog.

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.



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. 


She had no pain last week. 


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


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.

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.

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



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.

Cancer Only Supplements
Supplement Breakfast Dinner Brand Strength
Beta Carotene 125 softgels 125 softgels Puritan’s Pride #1223 25,000 IU
Note: Cheryl is not having any problems with this high level of beta carotene.
D3 2 softgels 2 softgels Puritan’s Pride #19377 5,000 IU
Note: D3 is important only as a crucial support vitamin for beta carotene.
Sunflower Lecithin 4 softgels NOW


1,200 mg


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.


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.


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.


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.
