Active Cancer Tips

Here are some general guidelines for active cancer patients.
Whether you have taken the plunge into Chemo/Radiation or if you are going solely with all Natural Treatments, these tips will hopefully help you to gain health and energy. Below you will find suggestions to help your body cleanse with herbs and supplements as well as other important steps to beat this deadly disease called Cancer.

One website that I found for general information for the newly diagnosed cancer patient is:
http://www.blochcancer.org Some information at that site may be helpful, it is a bit more for those who are medically minded.

A site which I find much more helpful and put together by someone whose opinions I respect very much you can find here
Russ Tanner has done a lot of research prior to putting this page together. You must have an open mind when searching for answers. Research.... research.... research..... and then research some more!

Active Cancer
Suggestions for Improving your Health – Please consult with a health care professional for information specific to your type of cancer.

1) Reduce Stress: In everyway you can.
a. Listen to spiritual and uplifting music.
b. Limit TV viewing, listen to positive messages instead.
c. Cancel or postpone as many outside commitments as possible.
d. Cease use of alcohol and smoking, reduce or eliminate caffeine and make dietary changes (see below).
e. Laugh as much as possible.
f. Enjoy fresh clean outside air - whether you are up for a short walk or just sitting on the porch for a short time each day.
g. Practice deep breathing - move that oxygen through your body, and help your Lymphatic system cleanse you with each deep breath.
h. Massage is very theraputic.

2) Get support:
a. Contact people for prayer and assistance.
b. Let others know you are going to be in a health care situation.
c. Accept help from Friends and families when they offer. Ask for help when you need it.
d. Research your cancer and options.
e. Make sure your health and financial records are up to date and accessible.

3) Diet changes (generic – consult with a health care professional if there are any special conditions for your situation.)
a. Know or find out your blood type. Get a copy of 4 Blood Types, 4 Diets, Eat Right for your Type ~ By Dr. Peter J.D'Adamo and select beneficial foods for your blood type.
b. Drink Pure clean water. Purchase or use a water filter (see our
specials section for the Reverse Osmosis unit on sale) and drink half your body weight in ounces daily.
c. Buy organic or wash fruits and vegetables in
Nature’s Sunshine Concentrate or salt water and lemon juice bath. I can not stress enough how important increasing your fruit and vegetable intake is. Eat them in their uncooked form as much as possible, or just slightly steamed.
d. Juicing: Optimize nutrition by juicing vegetables and drinking alone or with a green drink such as
Ultimate Greenzone for easy to assimilate nutrition.
e. Balance acids by choosing alkalizing foods. Use
pH strips to test if necessary. NSP has a great pH balancing brochure Stock #2836-1 explaining the necessity to balance your pH.
http://www.herbsplus4health.com/page_phbalancing.html for more info on pH balancing. The food chart at the bottom of the page can help you with food choices to balance your pH)

4) Nutritional and Herbal Supplements - The most recommended protocol for cancer patients I have found are Paw Paw Cell Regulator, Immune Stimulator and Protease in combination with each other. If you wish to use these, order four bottles of each for the first month, then adjust your order as needed.

Paw Paw Cell Reg
For those with diagnosed cancer only. Please read fact sheet for full program (
email me for a product sheet specific to this product or any others mentioned in this article)

Additional products which others have reported using successfully :
The following are products that are compatible with Paw Paw Cell-Reg, working synergistically with it, and which provide nutritional support to bodies under stress. As with all supplements, you may wish to consult with your health care provider for advice on their use. Many use the protocol mentioned above and then add other products as needed for their particular circumstances.
(Note: use of antioxidants is discouraged while using the paw paw. Other supplements are encouraged. Please email me if you would like me to email you the Paw Paw fact sheet.)

a. Pau D’Arco Tea: Drink several glasses daily

E-Tea (Essiac Tea formula) by Nature’s Sunshine
E-TEA - This is NSP's encapsulated form of traditional Essiac Tea.
In 1922, Canadian nurse Rene Caisse received a recipe for a special tea from a hospital patient that had consulted an Ojibwa Indian medicine man. This woman had been dealing with cellular abnormalities, and the tea helped her recover her strength and vitality. Rene used the same tea recipe to help her aunt who had a similar health challenge. Its popularity caught on, and eventually thousands were using it. It became known as Essiac tea, Caisse’s name spelled backwards. E-Tea contains burdock root, sheep sorrel herb, slippery elm bark and Turkey rhubarb root. It supports immunity and helps detoxify and purify the blood.

Golden Salve - This is a soothing ointment containing extracts of comfrey leaf, golden seal root, yarrow flower, white oak bark, black walnut hulls, marshmallow root, lobelia herb, scullcap herb, myrrh gum, mullein herb, wheat germ and chickweed herb in a base of olive oil, beeswax, vitamin E and eucalyptus oil. Use externally to soothe and moisturize rough, chafed or chapped skin and lips. Apply liberally as often as needed.

Lymphatic Drainage
• Helps Body Perform Natural Lymphatic Drainage Function
• A natural and pure extract composed of the finest cleavers herb (Galium aparine), red clover tops (Trifolium pratense), stillingia herb (Stillingia sylvatica), and prickly ash bark (Zanthoxylum clava-herculis) in vegetable glycerin.

• Glandular, Circulatory, Respiratory, and Immune System Support
• Nature's Sunshine uses a proprietary process in cultivating Cordyceps sinensis, providing a premium quality and standard of this rare, wild-crafted botanical harvested from the high plateau of Tibet.
• Cordyceps is a unique dietary supplement purported to have more pronounced benefits than ginseng in energizing the body's systems. This supplement helps support the body when experiencing symptoms of fatigue, promoting stamina and healthy lung function.

L-Carnitine - Amino Acid supplement utilized by the body for proper energy and fat metabolism.

Astragalus Root
• Helps Stimulate Immune Response
• Adaptogenic Herb - Helps the Body Cope with Stress
• Helps Stimulate the Body's Natural Production of Interferon

Aloe Vera juice
• A nutritional storehouse, naturally rich with several vitamins plus 18 amino acids, in addition to many other nutritional substances. It benefits the intestinal system.
• Nature's Sunshine's Aloe Vera Juice can also be taken internally plain or with juice or water. 2-6 oz. daily. Can sooth swallowing discomforts problems, thrush and increased yeast problems in the mouth, help alievate constipation and heal intestinal areas.
• Used externally, it is known for its hydrating and moisturizing properties and can be very healing to irritated skin.

Flax Seed Oil - Nature's Sunshine's Flaxseed oil is of the purest form you can purchase on the market. Many have used flaxseed oil for cancer treatment and prevention (see testimony below). This is something I strongly believe should be added to everyone's diet regardless as it can also help in the following conditions: High Cholesterol Levels, Prevention of Strokes and Heart Attacks, Angina, High Blood Pressure, Arthritis, Multiple Sclerosis, Psoriasis and Eczema, Cancer Prevention and Treatment, Allergies, Asthma, Calmness Under Stress & Vitality
• The human body cannot function properly without two polyunsaturated fats - linoleic and alpha-linolenic acid. These fatty acids, which are found in Flaxseed Oil are truly essential to normal cell structure and body function. These acids found in omega-3 oils such as Flax Oil have been extensively studied for their beneficial effects on the human body.
• Here is a testimony shared on how adding Flaxseed oil and cottage cheese to the diet helped one man who was diagnosed with Advanced Prostate cancer.
In this article Clifford Beckwith gives testimoney on ideas of a Dr. Johanna Budwig in Germany. She is a Biochemist and blood specialist who has been treating cancer of all kinds with nothing but cottage cheese and Flaxseed Oil for over 16 years. Depending on the severity of the condition Dr. Budwig recommends between 3 to 6 Tbsps. of Flaxseed oil a day, with at least 4 oz or 1/2 cup of cottage cheese per day.

5) Environmental Helps
a. Consider an eco-friendly source of laundry detergent, fabric softeners and cleaning products. Nature's
Sunshine Concentrate works well here.
b. Reduce exposure to air pollution. Use an air cleaner or diffuse essential oils in your home.Search for your favorite E.O.'s
here. Don’t use artificial air sprays or perfumes. Use natural products for teeth and deodorant (Lavender Essential Oil neat or Nature's Fresh or add a few drops the Lavender E.O to Nature's fresh), facial and skin cleaning. Search Personal Care products here.
c. Take a detoxifying Non-toxic warm bath. Use products such as
Nature's Sunshine Concentrate as your bath bubble, Natria Body Wash as a mild soap, & Herbal Shampoo. You can also add a little of your favorite essential oils as well. Let yourself soak at least 20 minutes, and allow your body to detoxify. After bathing or showering do an all over body spray using the Nature's Fresh and let it air dry.

This information is intended for educational purposes. If you desire to purchase any mentioned products. Please go to
www.mynsp.com/herbsplus Most importantly, make sure you are getting good amounts of nourishment as you are trying rebuild your body systems. Also you want your body to cleanse slowly. You do not want to deplete your system by cleansing too quickly. Many have had success using products mentioned in this article but unfortunately cancer is such a terrible disease and there are no guarantees that they will work on everyone. So much depends on each individual and I just pray that some of these ideas will help you regain health and energy. My Prayers are with you.

A personal note: In 1991 I lost my brother David (age 35) to a brain cancer called
Astrocytoma Glioma. I wish I knew then what I know now. Since his passing I have been very focused on my quest to find answers to possibly help someone out there. I hope that something contained in this article and others which I post will help those who have been diagnosed with cancer (and other diseases) and happen to land on this web blog. If these things help you I hope you will commit to continuing lifestyle/dietary changes for life so to lessen your chances of having these cancers return. Take the extra step to help others you love make changes to their diet and lifestyle so they will never have to find my web site or others like it in their future. Walk with God and Pray often!

More on Cancer & The Budwig Diet and Theory

Budwig Flax Oil Diet
by Chris Turner

Science has proven that fats play an important role in the functioning of the entire body. To function efficiently, cells require true polyunsaturated, live electron-rich lipids, present in abundance in raw flaxseed oil.

Editor’s Note
It is vital to bear in mind that, to date, there is no universal cancer cure. Patients and researchers alike should inform themselves of the various treatment options for this highly complex constellation of cancer types, and proceed, with the help of their physicians, along the most appropriate treatment route(s).

About the Author
Christopher J Turner ND, DC(BEST), runs a Centre for Bioenergetic Medicine in Bournemouth. The practice uses Electro acupuncture backed up by medical tests such as EKG, urine analysis, and blood work. The practice is essentially a Naturopathic practice and uses herb teas, tinctures and supplements. Detoxification and Lymph drainage techniques are employed using ozone and steam therapy, and massage (manual and electrical). NeuromuscularReprogramming is used for structural and musculoskeletal problems. He can be contacted at The Richmond Clinic on 01202 515090.

Dr Johanna Budwig is one of Germany’s premier biochemists and an expert on fats and oils. She holds a PhD in natural science, has undergone medical training, and was schooled in pharmaceutical science, physics, botany and biology. She is best known for her extensive research on the properties and benefits of flaxseed oil combined with sulphurated proteins in the diet, and over the years has published a number of books on the subject, including Cancer – A Fat Problem, The Death of the Tumor, and True Health Against Arteriosclerosis, Heart Infarction and Cancer.

In the mid-1950s, Dr Budwig began her long and meticulous research on the importance of essential fatty acids (linoleic and linolenic) in the diet. Her subsequent discoveries and announcements sparked mixed reactions. While the general public was eager for this astounding information, German manufacturers of commercial dietary fats (margarine, hard shortening, vegetable oils) went to extremes to prevent her from publishing her findings. Fortunately, while Dr Budwig’s vital announcements were initially met with resistance backed by those with financial stakes in the commercial fats industry, her persistence paid off. Today, Dr Johanna Budwig is world renowned for her important discoveries on the benefits of flaxseed oil. Her fame precedes her as she lectures all over Europe.

Dr Johanna preaches against the use of what she calls ‘pseudo’fats. In order to extend the shelf life of their products, manufacturers use chemical processes that render their food products harmful to the body. These harmful fats go by a number of names, including ‘hydrogenated’, ‘partially hydrogenated’ and even ‘polyunsaturated’. The chemical processing of fats destroys the vital electron cloud within the fat. Once the electrons have been removed, these fats can no longer bind with oxygen, and they actually become a harmful substance deposited within the body. The heart, for instance, rejects these fats and they end up as inorganic fatty deposits on the heart muscle itself. Chemically processed fats are not water-soluble when bound to protein. They end up blocking the circulation, damaging heart action, inhibiting cell renewal and impeding the free flow of blood and lymphfluids. The bioelectrical action in these areas slows down and may become completely paralysed.

The entire organism shows a measurable loss of electrical energy, which is replenished only by adding active lipids to the diet. These nutritional fats are truly vital for man and beast alike. Science has proven that fats play an important role in the functioning of the entire body. Fats (lipids) are vital for all growth processing, renewal of cells, brain and nerve functions, even for the sensory organs (eyes and ears), and for the body’s adjustment to heat, cold and quick temperature changes. Our energy resources are based on lipid metabolism.

To function efficiently, cells require true polyunsaturated, live electron-rich lipids, present in abundance in raw flaxseed oil. True polyunsaturated fats greedily absorb proteins and oxygen and pump them through the system. Lipids are only water-soluble and free flowing when bound to protein; thus the importance of protein-rich cottage cheese. When high quality, electron-rich fats are combined with proteins, the electrons are protected until the body requires energy. This energy source is then fully and immediately available to the body on demand, as nature intended.

Since Dr Johanna Budwig’s findings on the benefits of flaxseed oil have been widely publicized, scientists around the world have eagerly jumped on the bandwagon. Studies conducted using flaxseed oil on numerous disorders have been pouring in from all over the world, showing impressive results, including anti-tumour activity, increased metabolism, greatly boosted immune system, reduced cholesterol levels, normalized blood pressure levels and inhibition of cancer cell growth. Books, research reports, articles and testimonials abound, all touting the healthy benefits achieved by supplementing the diet with organic, raw, cold-pressed flaxseed oil and with low-fat cottage cheese.

Dr Budwig’s research was based on using the ratio of two tablespoons flaxseed oil mixed with one-quarter cup of low-fat cottage cheese. Backed with all this extensive research, the indisputable fact is: supplementing your diet daily with flaxseed oil combined with sulphurated proteins could very well be the most important thing you do for yourself every day.

After 30 years of research, Dr Budwig, six times nominee for the Nobel award, found that the blood of seriously ill cancer patients was deficient in certain important essential ingredients, which included substances, called phosphatides and lipo proteins. (The blood of a healthy person always contains sufficient quantities of these essential ingredients. However, without these natural ingredients cancer cells grow wild and out of control). Blood analysis showed a strange greenish-yellow substance in place of the healthy red oxygen- carrying haemoglobin that belongs there. This explained why cancer patients weaken and become anaemic.

This startling discovery led Dr Budwig to test her theory. She found that when these natural ingredients were replaced over approximately a three-month period, tumours gradually receded. The strange greenish elements in the blood were replaced with healthy red blood cells as the phosphatides and lipoproteins almost miraculously reappeared. Weakness and anaemia disappeared and life energy was restored. Symptoms of cancer, liver dysfunction and diabetes were completely alleviated. Dr Budwig then discovered an all-natural way for people to replace those essential ingredients their bodies so desperately needed in their daily diet, by simply eating a combination of just two natural and delicious foods. (These two natural foods, organic flaxseed oil and cottage cheese, must be eaten together to be effective since one triggers the properties of the other to be released). After more than ten years of solid clinical application, DrBudwig’s natural formula has proven successful where many orthodox remedies have failed.

Dr Budwig’s formula has been used therapeutically in Europe for the prevention/treatment of: cancer, arterio sclerosis, strokes, cardiac infarction, irregular heartbeat, fatty degeneration of the liver, bronchial spasms, irregular intestinal activity, stomach ulcers (normalizes gastric juices), hypertrophic prostate, arthritis (exerts a favourable influence), eczema (assists all skin diseases), common afflictions of old age, poor brain activity, immune deficiency syndromes (multiple sclerosis, autoimmune illnesses).

The Budwig Flax Oil Diet
The flaxseed (linseed) oil diet was originally proposed by Dr Johanna Budwig in 1951 and recently re-examined by Dr Dan C Roehm MD FACP (oncologist and former cardiologist) in 1990. Dr Roehm claims: “this diet is far and away the most successful anti-cancer diet in the world”.1 Budwig claims that the diet is both preventative and curative. She says the absence of linoleic acids (in the average Western diet) is responsible for the production of oxidase, which induces cancer growth and is the cause of many other chronic disorders. The beneficial oxidase ferments are destroyed by heating or boiling oils in foods, and by nitrates used for preserving meat, etc.

The theory is: the use of oxygen in the organism can be stimulated by protein compounds of sulphuric content, which make oils water-soluble and which is present in cheese, nuts, onion and leek vegetables such as leek, chive, onion and garlic, but especially cottage cheese. Ferments of cell respiration closely connected with the highly unsaturated fatty acids, are also needed for proper oxidation. It is essential to use only unrefined, cold-pressed oils with high linoleic acid content, such as linseed, sunflower, soya, poppy seed, walnut and corn oils. Such oils should be consumed together with foods containing the right proteins, otherwise the oils will have the opposite effect, causing more harm than good. The best combination is cottage cheese and linseed oil. The linseed should be freshly ground. Carbohydrates containing natural sugar, such as dates, figs, pears, apples and grapes, are also included in the diet. Honey is also beneficial. Some synthetic vitamin A preparations are bad because they contain oxidation products, but much carotene as pro vitamin A (from carrot) is consumed. Vitamin B from buttermilk, yogurt, and natural yeast is beneficial. A person requires daily about 4 oz of cottage cheese mixed well with 1.5 oz of linseed oil and 1 oz of milk. A blender or egg beater works fine. The mixture can be sweetened with honey or otherwise flavoured naturally. Fresh fruits can be added. Every morning two spoonfuls of freshly ground linseed oil should be taken in luke-warm buttermilk or yogurt.The diet is indicated for all kinds of chronic diseases, especially heart ailments (coronary thrombosis), gall disorders, diabetes, arthritis, and malignancies. It improves failing hearing and sight. It is the ideal nutrient for children and infants. It is suggested that this diet be supplemented with lactic acid ferments.

General Rules
The patient has no nourishment on day one other than 250 ml (8.5oz) of flax oil with honey plus freshly squeezed fruit juices (no sugar added!). In the case of a very ill person, champagne may be added on the first day in place of juice and is taken with the flax oil and honey. Champagne is easily absorbable and has a serious purpose here.

1. Sugar is absolutely forbidden. Grape juice may be added to sweeten any other freshly squeezed juices.

2. Other ‘forbiddens’ are:
a. all animal fats
b. all salad oils (this includes commercial mayonnaise)
c. all meats (chemicals and hormones)
d. butter
e. margarine
f. preserved meats (the preservatives block metabolism even of flax oil).

3. Freshly squeezed vegetable juices are fine – carrot, celery, apple and red beet.

4. Three times daily a warm tea is essential – peppermint, rose hips or grape tea – all sweetened as desired with honey. One cup of black tea before noon is fine.

Daily Plan
Before breakfast
– a glass of Acidophilus milk or Sauer kraut juice is taken.
Breakfast – Muesli (regular cereal) is overlaid with two tablespoons (30 ml) of flax oil and honey and fresh fruit according to season, e.g. berries, cherries, apricots, peaches, grated apple.
Vary the flavour from day to day.
Use any nuts except peanuts!
Herbal teas as desired or black tea.
A 4oz (120g) serving of ‘the spread’(directions below). This is fine to eat ‘straight’, like a custard, or add it to other foods taken in the day as you will see.
Morning tea (10am) – A glass of fresh carrot, apple, celery, orbeet-apple juice is taken.
Lunch – Raw salad with yogurt-flax oil mayonnaise (directions below).
In addition to ‘greens’ salads, use grated turnips, carrots, kohlrabi, radishes, sauerkraut or cauliflower.
A fine powder of horseradish, chives or parsley may be added for flavour.
Cooked meal course – Steamed vegetables, potatoes, or such grains as rice, buckwheat or millet may be served.
To these add either ‘the spread’ or ‘the mayo’ for flavour and to up your intake of flax oil.
Also mix ‘the spread’ with potatoes for an especially hearty meal. Add caraway, chives, parsley or other herbs.
Dessert – Mix fresh fruit other than those used for breakfast with ‘the spread’, this time (instead of honey), flavoured using cream of lemon, vanilla or berries.
Afternoon tea (4pm) – A small glass of natural wine (no preservatives) or champagne or fresh fruit juice with 1-2 tablespoons of honey- coated flax seeds.
Supper – Have this early, at 6pm. Make a hot meal using buckwheat, oat or soy cakes. Grits from buckwheat are the very best and can be placed in a vegetable soup, or in a more solid form of cakes with herbal sauce.
Sweet sauces and soups can always be given far more healing energy by adding ‘the spread’.
Only honey or grape juice can be used for sweeteners.
No white sugar (or brown!).
Only freshly squeezed juices and not reconstituted juices (preservative danger) may be used. These must be completely natural.

"If only all patients had a PhD in biochemistry and quantum physics to enable them to see how with such consummate skill this diet was put together. It is a wonder. The champagne vehicle is easier to assimilate and get someone almost on his or her death bed going again. A retention enema of 250 ml (8.5oz) of oil is another route to get this precious life furthering, electron-rich oil into the body. It can also be applied to the skin for transdermal absorption."1

In 1967, Dr Budwig broadcast the following sentence during an interview over the South German radio network, describing her incoming patients with failed operations and x-ray therapy:“Even in these cases it is possible to restore health in a few months at most, I would truly say 90% of the time. "This has never been contradicted, but this knowledge has been along time reaching this side of the ocean, hasn’t it?" May those of you who have suffered from this disease (and I include your family and friends in this) forgive the miscreants who have kept this simple information from reaching you for so long."1

Flax seeds may also be used. Seeds need only be cracked in a food blender, or they may be ground in a coffee grinder. One needs three times the amount of seed to get the oil equivalent. Seeds are high in calories, so one may gain weight. The seeds are also high in soluble fibre, so blending with liquid tends to produce ever-hardening ‘jellies’. Fresh-cracked seed sprinkled on muesli and eaten promptly tastes great.

Ed McCabe 2 discusses his point of view on essential fatty acids: “The red blood cells in the lungs give up carbon dioxide and take on oxygen. They are then transported to the cell site via the blood vessels, where, they release their oxygen into the plasma. This released oxygen is ‘attracted’ to the cells by the ‘resonance’ of the ‘pi-electron’oxidation-enhancing fatty acids. Otherwise, oxygen cannot work its way into the cell. ‘Electron rich fatty acids’ play the decisive role in respiratory enzymes, which are the basis of cell oxidation…”“Don’t eat anything hydrogenated (like margarine, or fried foods) as it defeats oxygenation. Avoid products that say ‘hydrogenated’.”“We should eat essential polyunsaturated fatty acids to enhance oxygenation. They can be found naturally in carotene, saffron, and flaxseed oil.”

How to Prepare ‘the Spread
’Place 250ml (8.5oz) flax oil into a mixer bowl, and add one pound (450g) of 1%-fat cottage cheese and 4 tablespoons (60ml) of honey.Turn on the mixer and add just enough low-fat milk or water to get the contents of the bowl to blend in together. In 5 minutes, a preparation of custard consistency results that has no taste of the oil (and no oily ‘ring’should be seen when you rinse out the bowl). Alternatively, you can use yogurt instead of cottage cheese in proportions of 1oz (30g) of yoghurt to 1 tablespoon (15ml) each of flax oil and of honey and blend as above. Note: When flax oil is blended like this, it does not cause diarrhea even when given in large amounts. It reacts chemically with the (sulphur) proteins of the cottage cheese, yogurt, etc.

How to Prepare ‘the Mayo’ (Mayonnaise)
Mix together 2 tablespoons (30ml) flax oil, 2 tablespoons(30ml) milk, and 2 tablespoons (30ml) yogurt.Then add 2 tablespoons (30ml) of lemon juice (or apple cider vinegar) and add 1 teaspoon (2.5g) mustard plus some herbs such as marjoram or dill. Next add 2 or 3 slices of health food store pickles (no preservatives! – read label!) and a pinch of herbal salts. (The above mayonnaise plus lots of mustard and a few bananas is very tasty!)

Untold Truth Seminar Module 3 - The Diabetes Epidemic: Our Deadly Fascination with Junk Food

Diabetes statistics for the U.S.:
* Affects 18 million Americans
* Many are children or young adults.
* Six million are unaware they have diabetes.
* 800,000 new cases will be diagnosed this year.
* 33% of today's children will become diabetic.
* Seventh leading killer in the U.S.

What is Diabetes?
Gestational Diabetes

* Occurs in expectant mothers, usually goes away after baby's birth.
Type I
* Afflicts one million people in the U.S.
* Caused by the pancreas's inability to produce or properly use insulin.
* Insulin converts sugar into energy.
* Type I diabetics require insulin injections to stabilize blood sugar.
Type II
* 95% of diabetics have this variety.
* Previously known as "adult onset" diabetes
* Name changed because younger and younger people are now getting the disease
* Type II sufferers also struggle with insulin
* Pancreas may not produce enough
* Cells may have become "insulin resistant"
* The majority of type II diabetes is linked to diet and lifestyle.

What goes wrong with diabetes?
* Food is digested
* Glucose is released
* Pancreas releases insulin
* Cells receive energy
* WHAT GOES WRONG: faulty insulin receptors 0r insulin not working right; prevents the cell membrane from opening to receive the glucose it needs.

How Bad Is It?
* Type II Diabetes is the fastest growing disease in America today
* The average American today eats 530 calories more than he did in 1970.

Consumed per year:
* 60 lbs. cookies and cake
* 23 gallons of ice cream
* 7 lbs. potato chips (has to be more than that!!)
* 51 lbs. french fries
* 57 gallons soda pop

Older generation ­did they grow up on that kind of food? No. Even ice cream you had just once in a while, and it was made at home with stuff that resembled food. (Did you know that out-of-date ice cream, twinkies, etc. goes to pigs to fatten them up. One class member told us about what wonderful health her grandmother is in; 92 yrs. of age who has never eaten processed foods, and is bright and active and even matches her shoes and purse! We don't need every new diet fad that comes around --- even the "Eat right for your blood type"! We just need to eat moderately!!!

Signs you may have diabetes:
* increased/frequent urination
* dehydration
* excessive intake of water and/or food
* weight loss despite increased appetite
* nausea and/or vomiting
* abdominal pain or discomfort, particularly after eating
* weakness or excessive fatigue
* absence of menstruation in women
* blurred or poor vision
* increased susceptibility to infection and/or poor would healing
* Impotence in men

Risk factors:
* Family history of diabetes
* Over 40
* Pear shaped vs. apple shaped body
* Waist over 35" (women) or 40" (men)
* Sedentary lifestyle; high-fat, high-calorie diet
* High blood pressure
* Women ­ history of gestational diabetes or PCOS
* African American, Hispanic American or Native American descendent
* History of kidney and/or gall bladder stones

­- Nutrition
E - Exercise (doesn't mean you have to go to the gym - Do something together as a family! What do you enjoy doing?)
W ­- Water
S ­- Sunshine (Clean your colon, take your Thai-Go)
T ­- Temperance (self-control) - your emotions and the way that you respond to people [a well-balanced body controls emotions better]; what you put into your body
A ­- Air; breathe fresh air!
R -­ Rest ­take time for a rest when you are tired and worn out; get enough sleep at night (it may mean giving up something that is not as important, like TV, internet, e-mail, etc.).
Make Sundays a day of rest!
T -­ Trust in God ­~ there are many burdens in your life that you were not meant to hold on to and deal with by yourself. Be anxious for nothing, etc.


What's so bad about too much sugar?
"An acidic diet (high sugar, meat, soda pop) causes calcium to go from the bones to the pancreas. This not only triggers osteoporosis, but also jams up the pancreas, which produces less insulin as a result."
(Journal of American Medicine)(Jammed in kidneys, gall bladder, bone spurs, breast calcifications, etc.)

How Much Sugar Do We Eat?
* A century ago, the average adult consumed 18 pounds of sugar per year.
* Today, annual average sugar consumption in the United States is a staggering 176 pounds per person.
* This is nearly 1000% more sugar than 100 years ago. Biggest weight loss secret of the century ­ get rid of the sugar - out of your house! If it there ­you will eat it!

Is sugar the only problem?
* If you reduce sugar intake but continue to eat white bread, white minute rice and pasta in large amounts, those carbohydrate-dense foods will mimic straight sugar.
* Whole grains much better ­contain B vitamins & fiber.
* The wrong kinds of fats are a danger too. Remove trans fats, hydrogenated oils.
* Obesity is directly linked to diabetes development.

Normal blood glucose levels: (www.familydoctor.org)

* Before breakfast: 80-120
* 1-2 hours after breakfast: less than 180
* Before lunch: 80-120
* 1-2 hours after lunch: less than 180
* Before dinner: 80-120
* 1-2 hours after dinner: less than 180
* Bedtime: 100-140

* 3 a.m. - 70-110

Buy a glucometer and have people prick their own fingers while you hold the testing strip, so they can see what their blood glucose levels are.

Put them on Chromium GTF to start, nothing else, at the pre-diabetic stage

Inflammation is the Root of Disease

Why is inflammation so bad?
* Inflammation damages cell membranes, making them "stiffer" and less receptive to insulin
* Chronic stress leads to inflammation
* Our toxic environment leads to inflammation

Stressed into diabetes:
"People who get only four hours of sleep per night have a 30% decrease in their insulin secretion. Restoring sleep can normalize their problem, but it takes 40% longer to recover to normal secretion levels. Chronic sleep deprivation may prevent recovery permanently, and may cause increased insulin resistance."
(J. Occupational Environmental Medicine 2001; 58:569)

Nature Holds the Answer to Diabetes

Pharmaceutical companies have increased their advertising spending 612% between 1993 and 1998
Beautiful, flowing music and people --- then list all the side effects???

The downside (Effects) of Drugs:
* Shaking, rapid heartbeat, shortness of breath
* Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and other gastrointestinal effects
* Headaches, weakness, or confusion
* Weight gain or fluid retention
* Anemia
* Fatigue, soreness...and don't forget the spiraling costs of prescription drugs!!!

Control Your Blood Sugar and You Control Almost Every Life-Threatening Disease

If I slow the aging process, will that help me avoid diabetes? ABSOLUTELY!!!
"Consider that the average 50-year-old woman in the U.S. Today can expect to live to be 81. If we were to conquer the two main causes of death, currently cancer and heart disease, it would only increase this woman's life span seven years, to age 88. That's because during this period, her over all health and vitality would still decline. She'd lose vigor, stamina, and her organs would tire and fail.
However, if we could slow the aging process, she would retain her energy many more years, be able to fight off diseases like cancer and Alzheimer's, all the while enjoying a longer, fuller life that could last in excess of 100 years."
(Research on the Aging: The End of the Beginning; Science, Feb. 2003)

Lower calories = Longer life
Remember the study on mice: calorie reduction extended their life span ---even of those who were already middle-aged! Additionally, within 4 weeks of their new, lower-calorie diet, these middle-aged mice saw a reversal of 70% of their age-related problems.
Get the same effects...by lowering your blood sugar. Keep your blood sugar balanced by eating lots of small meals throughout the day. When you get too hungry, you go into animal instinct: "Whatever I see first is going in my mouth."
(CinnaBon rents ventilation space in the mall to pipe their smells!)

Supplementation can help fight (even prevent!) diabetes!
* Sugar has overwhelmed our bodies and undermined its most important functions.
* Inflammation is the root of diabetes and other diseases - it must be controlled.
* Nature holds the answers to our diabetes questions.
* Controlling our blood sugar may not only prevent diabetes, it can also reduce disease and dramatically enhance our quality of life.

News Release on NSP's last quarter revenue

Nature's Sunshine Products Reports Strong Gains in Operating Results;
Net Sales Revenue Sets New Record

Wednesday October 20, 7:30 AM EDT PROVO, Utah, Oct 20, 2004 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Nature's Sunshine Products, Inc. (NATR), a leading manufacturer and marketer of encapsulated herbs and vitamins, today reported record net sales revenue for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2004."

Our results for the third quarter reflected continued sales revenue gains in our Synergy and international operations, improvements in the United States operations, as well as the benefits of recent product introductions and more intensive marketing efforts. We are also beginning to see the benefits from our stated long-range program to materially reduce selling, general and administrative expenses," said Douglas Faggioli, President and CEO.

For the third quarter, net sales revenue totaled $83.6 million, compared with $63.5 million in the same period of the prior year, a gain of 31.7 percent, while operating income totaled $6.8 million, compared to an operating loss in the same period of the prior year of $1.0 million, a $7.8 million improvement. As a percent of net sales revenue, cost of goods sold equaled 18.3 percent, compared to 20.8 percent in the same period of the prior year, and selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") costs improved to 33.7 percent, compared with 38.3 percent in the second quarter of 2004 and 43.8 percent in the third quarter of 2003. Net income totaled $4.6 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, compared with a loss in the same period of the prior year of $0.6 million, or ($0.04) per diluted share. Results of the same period of the prior year included $2.2 million in pre-tax expenses related to costs associated with a realignment program.

Net sales revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2004 increased to $240.1 million, compared with $189.7 million in the same period of the prior year, an increase of 26.6 percent. SG&A stood at 36.3 percent of net sales revenue, compared to 41.0 percent in the same period of the prior year. Operating income more than tripled, to $15.2 million, compared with $3.9 million the previous year. Net income amounted to $12.4 million, compared with $2.2 million in the same period of the prior year, an increase of 473.5 percent. Per diluted share net income for the nine months equaled $0.81, compared with $0.15 in the same period of the prior year.

Synergy Worldwide, operating principally in Asia, continued to experience rapid growth. Third quarter net sales revenue advanced 271.0 percent, to $24.3 million, compared with $6.6 million in the same period of the prior year, and for the nine months amounted to $60.1 million, compared with $16.4 million in the same period of the prior year, a gain of 265.7 percent. During the third quarter Synergy began operations in Australia and converted Nature's Sunshine South Korea and Nature's Sunshine Singapore to Synergy operations.

Third quarter United States net sales revenue, excluding the Dominican Republic, was flat, compared to the same period of the prior year. United States net sales revenues including sales from the Dominican Republic, were down slightly year to year, to $32.9 million, compared with $34.0 million, a decrease of 3.2 percent. For the nine months ended September 30, 2004 net sales revenue totaled $103.3 million compared to $107.8 million, a decrease of 4.1 percent. The improvement in United States operations is directly related to new products, including Thai-Go, now Nature's Sunshine top selling product, and positive reaction to the Habit-of-Health 90-Day Challenge program. This program provides incentives for consumers to utilize a package of proprietary products for at least 90 days. The core package contains six of Nature's best and most popular supplements designed to supplement normal diets and provide extra nutritional support.

The international division posted third quarter net sales revenue of $26.4 million, compared with $22.9 million in the same period of the prior year, and for the nine months, net sales revenue totaled $76.6 million, compared with $65.5 million in the same period of the prior year, an increase of 15.0 percent and 17.0 percent, respectively. The strongest third quarter net sales revenue gains internationally were recorded in the Russian Federation, the United Kingdom, Colombia, Central America and Canada.

All current and prior segment information has been restated to reflect the realignment of our South Korea and Singapore operations to Synergy Worldwide.

As of September 30, 2004, working capital totaled $45.1 million, and cash and cash equivalents totaled $39.5 million. Shareholders equity amounted to $94.1 million. The Company has no debt.

Nature's Sunshine had approximately 652,000 Distributors worldwide at September 30, 2004, compared to approximately 562,000 at December 31, 2003. The numbers of Managers worldwide on the same dates were approximately 18,100 and 15,150, respectively.

Cilantro Recipes - Remove Heavy Metals

Heavy metal poisoning is rampant. It is a major cause of hormonal imbalances, cancer, thyroid problems, neurological disturbances, learning problems, depression, food allergies, parasites, etc. etc. This is a great recipe that is not only easy to make but also really yummy, and it tells you how to remove heavy metals from the body! Cilantro is truly a healing food.

One friend suffering from high blood pressure due to mercury poisoning had her blood pressure return to normal after eating two teaspoons of this pesto daily for only a week. So whether you need to detoxify heavy metals from your body or just wish to use it as a preventative measure, 2 teaspoons a day is all you need to take.

Cilantro Chelation Pesto
Author Unknown

4 cloves garlic
1/3 cup Brazil nuts (selenium)
1/3 cup sunflower seeds (cysteine)
1/3 cup pumpkin seeds (zinc, magnesium)
2 cups packed fresh cilantro (coriander, Chinese parsley) (vitamin A)
2/3 cup NSP Flaxseed Oil
4 tablespoons lemon juice (vitamin C)
2 tsp dulse powder (or substitute 1/2 t. NSP Dulse liquid)
Sea salt to taste

Process the cilantro and flaxseed oil in a blender until the coriander is chopped. Add the garlic, nuts and seeds, dulse and lemon juice and mix until the mixture is finely blended into a paste. Add a pinch to sea salt to taste and blend again. Store in dark glass jars if possible. It freezes well, so purchase cilantro in season and fill enough jars to last through the year.

Cilantro has been proven to chelate toxic metals from our bodies in a relatively short period of time. Combined with the benefits of the other ingredients, this recipe is a powerful tissue cleanser.

Two teaspoons of this pesto daily for three weeks is purportedly enough to increase the urinary excretion of mercury, lead and aluminum, thus effectively removing these toxic metals from our bodies. We can consider doing this cleanse for three weeks at least once a year.
The pesto is delicious on toast, baked potatoes, and pasta.

2 Heads (NOT CLOVES but whole head) of Garlic Minced

Nature's Sunshine Also carries this great product to assist the body in detoxing.

Heavy Metal Detox (90) [Digestive, Intestinal]. Scientists estimate that over 50 percent of U.S. residents are exposed to heavy metals in their environment. These metals, which include lead, mercury, aluminum, cadmium and arsenic, are found in industrial byproducts as well as in drinking water, pesticides and even things as common as dental fillings and cooking utensils. Heavy Metal Detox is a potent detoxification support product designed to bind with heavy metals and remove them from the body. This formula also supports the liver it its efforts to cleanse, detoxify and replenish the body with essential minerals. The key ingredient, cilantro, appears to decrease the level of heavy metals in the body and increase their levels in the urine. Other ingredients include N-Acetyl-Cysteine, apple pectin, sodium alginate, kelp algae, l-methionine, alpha lipoic acid, magnesium and pyridoxal-5-phosphate. Take 1 capsule with a meal twice daily.

The Sunshine Concentrate contains water, linear alcohol alkoxylates, and a very small amount of a natural fragrance. The alcohol alkoxylates are a biodegradable series of nonionic surfactants. In short, this is the soap. This provides the Concentrate the detergent and sudsing action and also has antimicrobial activity. These are organic compounds that are safe for the environment being biodegradable, nontoxic, nonirritating, nonmagnetic, and nonvolatile.
NOTE: Do not put fingers or foreign matter into concentrate bottle - bacteria can degrade strength.
