CHAPTER 14-"The Exceptional 11"

Have you ever heard someone say that taking vitamins and
minerals and other supplements is useless and will only give you
“expensive urine?” If I only had a nickel for each time I have heard
that! It kills me when I hear someone say something this naive. A
statement like this reveals a profound ignorance of the medical
literature on the value of supplements.
Now, the truth is that a percentage of most supplements is excreted
in the urine. But this does not mean that they are not useful. The
important factor is not whether you excrete some of the various
nutrients, but rather what these nutrients do on their way through
your body. Let’s look at water. Of course you excrete much of the
water that you consume. If you didn’t, you would look like the
Pillsbury Dough Boy! You excrete some through the urine, some
through sweat, and some as vapor in your breath. The fact that you
excrete it does not mean that you do not need to drink the water!
Have you ever heard someone say that you don’t need to drink
water because you’re just going to excrete it anyway? That would be
ludicrous to say, wouldn’t it?
“I will never eat another meal without taking a plant
enzyme supplement.” Dr. Dick Couey

The fact of the matter is that the most expensive urine in the world
is created by taking multiple overpriced prescription drugs, not
vitamins and supplements. With more than 40% of the U.S.
population now on prescription drugs, the drug content in human
urine is now so high that trace amounts of antidepressant drugs can
be found in public water supplies! Compared to prescription drugs,
supplements are cheap prevention, and the truth is that supplements
are essential to a well-balanced, cancer-fighting, optimallynutritious
diet. This chapter contains eleven of the top supplements
which I recommend. They are in alphabetical order.
Aerobic Stabilized Oxygen
When a person breathes, there is an exchange of carbon dioxide and
oxygen. The oxygen, which is taken in by the body from the
atmosphere around us, is picked up by the hemoglobin in the blood
and distributed to trillions of cells. Oxygen is the source of life and
energy to the cells of your body. Poor eating and drinking habits, air
pollution, medications, and lack of exercise can greatly reduce the
amount of oxygen available to the cells, thereby seriously affecting
the functioning of the immune system.
When there is insufficient oxygen to support the health of a cell, it
begins to produce energy anaerobically, which is an extremely
inefficient method of energy production. It is widely accepted, even
among many conventional physicians, that cancer has only one
prime cause: the replacement of normal aerobic respiration of the
body’s cells by anaerobic respiration (fermentation). Without a
consistent supply of oxygen, our bodies cannot adequately
metabolize the poisons we breathe and consume nor can our
immune system combat diseases effectively. Without an adequate
supply of body oxygen, we cannot utilize the nutrients our bodies
require for healthy cell metabolism. As I have stated numerous times
throughout this book, oxygen is at the very heart of every cellular
and body function.
Chapter 14 – The “Exceptional 11” Cancer – Step Outside the Box
E.D. Goodloe is oftentimes referred to as the “Guru of Stabilized
Oxygen,” having first introduced “stabilized oxygen” to the public
over 30 years ago. Aerobic Stabilized Oxygen is a liquid concentrate
of non-toxic stabilized electrolytes of oxygen in molecular form. It
provides an easy way of raising the body’s oxygen level. Unlike
drugs and antibiotics, Stabilized Oxygen acts selectively, thus it does
no harm to the beneficial aerobic bacteria which we need for good
These “good guys” (beneficial bacteria) change the minerals in the
food we eat from a solid state to a usable ionic state of assimilation.
However, most diseases and putrefying bacteria are anaerobic and
cannot survive in the presence of concentrated oxygen. This being
so, Aerobic Stabilized Oxygen selectively kills harmful anaerobic

Algae (Chlorella & Spirulina)
Chlorella is a “miracle whole food” which gets its name from the
amount of chlorophyll it possesses. It is a single cell algae, and
actually contains more chlorophyll per gram than any other known
plant. Chlorophyll is one of the greatest food substances for
cleansing the bowel and other elimination systems, such as the liver
and the blood, and it also is instrumental in transporting more
oxygen to the body and the brain. In addition, the “mysterious”
Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF) speeds up the healing rate of any
damaged tissue, including cancerous tissue.
In addition to amplifying the immune system’s response to cancer
cells, chlorella acts as a preventative measure against cancer by
raising blood levels of the protein albumin. According to Earl
Mindell’s Supplement Bible, “Numerous studies have documented
that a low albumin level is a marker for serious illnesses such as
Chapter 14 – The “Exceptional 11” Cancer – Step Outside the Box
cancer and heart disease. They point to test-tube studies confirming
that raising albumin levels can both prevent cancerous changes and
extend the life span of human cells.”
In a Japanese study, scientists placed lab mice on a chlorella regimen
for 10 days and then injected the mice with three types of cancer.
Amazingly, over 70% of the mice injected with chlorella did not
develop cancer, while 100% of the untreated mice did develop
cancer and died within 20 days. In his book Treating Cancer with
Herbs, Dr. Michael Tierra writes, “I recommend chlorella to all
cancer patients regardless of any other green drink they might use
… It is virtually a complete food in itself. It acts as both a powerful
nutrient and a detoxifying food.”
Chlorella also helps in balancing your body’s pH level, helps remove
toxic heavy metals, and contains a wide array of vitamins, minerals,
and enzymes. It also stimulates the production of red blood cells
and even eliminates bad breath. And it is safe for children. In a study
conducted on identical twins, the one given chlorella grew much
faster, healthier, and had fewer sicknesses than the twin who was
not given chlorella.
Spirulina is a blue-green algae found in alkaline, warm-water lakes.
It contains concentrations of nutrients unlike any other single grain,
herb, or plant. Spirulina is around 70% complete protein, with all
essential amino acids in perfect balance, and also provides high
concentrations of many other nutrients, chelated minerals, trace
elements, and enzymes. It has the essential fatty acids, gammalinolenic
acid (GLA), linoleic acid, and arachidonic acid. Spirulina is
virtually the only vegetarian source of vitamin B12, which is needed
for healthy red blood cells. It also has substantial amounts of
chlorophyll, although not as concentrated as chlorella, and it has
been show to boost the immune system. Perhaps most importantly,
lab studies have shown that spirulina polysaccharides can work to
repair damaged genetic material, thus spirulina possesses important
antineoplastic (cancer-fighting) attributes.
Chapter 14 – The “Exceptional 11” Cancer – Step Outside the Box
Some scientists speculate that the “manna” of the wandering
Israelites, which God provided for them each morning, and was
described as tasting “like wafers made with honey” may have been a
form of dried, dormant spirulina. Of course, this is pure speculation,
but it’s an interesting theory, nonetheless. The ability of spirulina to
grow in hot and alkaline environments ensures its sanitary status, as
no other organisms can survive to pollute the waters in which this
algae thrives. Unlike the stereotypical association of microorganisms
with “scum” and “germs,” spirulina is actually one of the cleanest,
most naturally sterile foods found in nature. Its adaptation to heat
also assures that spirulina retains its nutritional value when subject
to high temperatures during processing and shelf storage, unlike
many plant foods that rapidly deteriorate at high temperatures.
If you want more information on chlorella and spirulina, I strongly
recommend the online book entitled Superfoods for Optimal Health:
Chlorella and Spirulina, written by Mike Adams, The Health
Ranger. It is available for free here: www.chlorellafactor.com. We
purchase our chlorella and spirulina from www.iherb.com.
“Free radicals” are molecules with incomplete electron shells which
make them more chemically reactive than those with complete
electron shells. Exposure to various environmental factors, including
tobacco smoke and radiation, can also lead to free radical formation.
In humans, the most common form of free radicals is oxygen. When
an oxygen molecule (O2) becomes electrically charged or “oxidized”
it tries to steal electrons from other molecules, causing damage to
the DNA and other molecules. Over time, such damage may become
irreversible and lead to disease including cancer.
Antioxidants are substances that may protect cells from the damage
caused by free radicals. Antioxidants interact with and stabilize free
radicals and may prevent some of the damage free radicals otherwise
might cause. They are often described as “mopping up” or
“scavenging” free radicals, meaning they neutralize the electrical
Chapter 14 – The “Exceptional 11” Cancer – Step Outside the Box
charge and prevent the free radical from taking electrons from other
molecules. Considerable laboratory evidence indicates that
antioxidants may slow or possibly prevent the development of
Dr. Patrick Flanagan has devoted over 35 years to discover the
health and longevity secrets of the Hunzakuts who live in the
Himalayan mountains. Remember, we discussed the Hunzakuts in
the section on vitamin B17. Well, in addition to eating huge amounts
of apricot seeds which contain vitamin B17, it is also believed that
their secret to longevity is the cloudy, mineral-rich water that
rushes down from the Himalayan glaciers.
In studying the properties of this Hunzakuts’ water, Dr. Flanagan
found that silica crystals dissolved in the water were able to hold
negatively charged hydrogen ions (H-). These compounds are
technically called “silica hydrides,” and are the world’s most
powerful antioxidants. One very important characteristic of silica
hydrides is that they are the only antioxidants known to man that do
not turn into free radicals (oxidants) once they have neutralized free
radicals by donating an electron. Negatively charged hydrogen
merely turns into benign gas and/or water.
About 10 years ago, Dr. Patrick Flanagan recreated this silica
hydride compound and called it Microhydrin. Just within the past
couple of years, the manufacturers of Microhydrin (Royal Body
Care) have added a new product called Microhydrin Plus. This
product combines the silica hydride antioxidants of Microhydrin
with 8 other powerful antioxidants, including alpha lipoic acid
(ALA), N-Acetyl, L-Cysteine, green tea extract, milk thistle extract,
ascorbyl palmitate, niacinamide ascorbate, seleno L-Methionine,
and quercetin.
It is important to note that different antioxidants scavenge different
free radicals. There are antioxidants classified as water soluble and
those classified as oil soluble. It is important to consume both types
because they target different free radicals. For example, an oil
Chapter 14 – The “Exceptional 11” Cancer – Step Outside the Box
soluble free radical might attack the membrane of your cell because
the cell wall is made up of fat. Remember, oil and water don’t mix.
So, in order to protect your cell against these types of free radicals,
you need oil soluble antioxidants. On the other hand, there may be a
water soluble free radical in your bloodstream ready to attack one of
your blood cells. Only a water soluble antioxidant can keep this
from happening.
There are also antioxidants that work directly and those that work
indirectly. You need both. Direct antioxidants (such as vitamin C,
vitamin E, & beta-carotene) neutralize free radicals. In this process,
direct antioxidants bind to free radicals, rendering them harmless
and protecting cells from damage. Direct antioxidants are like the
“kamikaze” pilots who use their own plane as a weapon and commit
suicide, since once the direct antioxidants react with free radicals,
they are destroyed.
Indirect antioxidants like sulforaphane glucosinolate (SGS) which is
found in broccoli, broccoli sprouts, brussel sprouts, cabbage, and
cauliflower work as “catalysts” by boosting the body’s own
antioxidant systems by promoting the production of a variety of
protective enzymes, including superoxide dismutase, catalase, and
glutathione peroxidase. Even though they do not directly scavenge
free radicals, indirect antioxidants offer more comprehensive
protection against more types of damage compared to direct
antioxidants. This gives them a broad range of activity, “cascading”
over and over again, that removes many free radicals. Thus, the
body’s antioxidant systems continue to be effective even after the
indirect antioxidants have left the body. While direct antioxidants
are like a single soldier, indirect antioxidants are like an entire free
radical fighting “antioxidant army.”
Microhydrin Plus contains both water soluble antioxidants (NAcetyl,
L-Cysteine, green tea extract, niacinamide ascorbate, seleno
L-Methionine, and quercetin) and oil soluble antioxidants (alpha
lipoic acid (ALA), milk thistle extract, and ascorbyl palmitate). It
also contains direct antioxidants and indirect antioxidants. Is it any
Chapter 14 – The “Exceptional 11” Cancer – Step Outside the Box
wonder that this is the most potent antioxidant product available
today? Purchase Microhydrin Plus from the Wolfe Clinic:
Science has recently made a remarkable discovery, a new class of
missing nutrients, called “glyconutrients,” which is a broad term
used to describe around 200 naturally occurring biologically active
plant sugar molecules (monosaccharides) found in nature. From
these, researchers have identified a small group of 8 essential
glyconutrients which are crucial to the proper structure and
function of our 600 trillion cells.
These glyconutrients combine with proteins and fats to create
“glycoproteins” which coat the surface of virtually every cell in the
body, thus forming a complex messaging system for “cell-to-cell”
communication. If the cells do not have enough of the 8 essential
glyconutrients, then they cannot make the correct glycoproteins,
and the cell-to-cell messages become disrupted. Subsequently, the
immune system cannot effectively wage an offensive against
bacterial and viral pathogens or rapidly dividing cancer cells. The
result is the onset of disease.
Unfortunately, our modern diet is commonly providing only 2 of the
8 essential glyconutrients (glucose and galactose). So, it is important
to supplement your diet with a product that contains all 8 of the
essential glyconutrients (glucose, galactose, mannose, fucose, xylose,
N-acetylglucosamine, N-acetylgalactosamine, & N-acetylneuraminic acid).
Aloe Vera contains the 8 essential glyconutrients which ensure that
internal networking (cell-to-cell communication) is swift and
accurate. In addition to the gylconutrients, several enzymes
(endonucleases, hydrolases, esterases, and lipases) are produced from
the glyconutrients of aloe vera. Enzymatic reactions empower our
white blood cells (lymphocytes) which are the main “defenders” of
our immune system.
Chapter 14 – The “Exceptional 11” Cancer – Step Outside the Box
Obviously, an aloe based product would likely be a good dietary
supplement to obtain these glyconutrients and enzymes. However,
all aloe products are not created equal. Many manufacturers of aloe
products use high heat and filtering processes, thus destroying the
chains of molecules during the manufacturing process. This results
in inferior products.
It is for this reason that I recommend Aloe Immune. Their
proprietary manufacturing process delivers all of the 8 essential
glyconutrients in their optimal form due to the use of dehydrated
powder rather than a freeze or spray dried powder, or diluted juice
form. Aloe Immune is also less expensive than many other products
on the market today. You may remember the story of Neal DeOul
who cured himself of cancer with T-Up (an aloe vera concentrate)
and cesium chloride. Hmmmm……..interesting. To order Aloe
Immune, please visit www.doctorajadams.com/AloeVera.html.
Another excellent glyconutrient product is Garden of Life’s RM-10.
It is comprised of 10 organically grown and fermented medicinal
mushrooms, cat’s claw, and aloe vera. The formula was developed
by Jordan Rubin, N.M.D., C.N.C, founder of Garden of Life, in an
effort to save the life of his grandmother, Rose Menlowe, who was
diagnosed with metastatic cancer of the ovaries, colon, lymphatic
system and appendix. Today, Rose Menlowe, a cancer survivor,
credits her recovery to use of the RM-10 formula. Purchase RM-10
here: www.gardenoflife.com/detail_rm10.shtml
Himalayan Goji Berries are an excellent source of glyconutrients.
Goji polysaccharides were proved to be exceptional source of the
essential sugars like xylose, glucose, mannose, and galactose.
Himalayan Goji Juice is now undergoing intense scrutiny as a
malignant drug in Tibet, Mongolia, China, Japan and Switzerland. It
has been found that the fruit, as well as an extract from its leaves,
can kill many kinds of malignant cells in vitro. In vivo studies and
human studies are proving to be highly promising as well.
Chapter 14 – The “Exceptional 11” Cancer – Step Outside the Box
Himalayan Goji Juice contains approximately 124 parts per million
of organic Germanium. Germanium has been demonstrated to have
anti-cancer activity. Japanese studies indicate that organic
Germanium is effective in treating liver cancer, lung cancer, uterine
cancer, cervical cancer, and testicular cancer when combined with
other drugs. It has been found to induce the production in human
beings of interferon, which can kill malignant cancer cells. To
purchase authentic Himalayan Goji Juice, visit www.health-gojijuice.
“Living Fuel Rx“ - Super Greens & Super Berry
Each day for lunch, I drink my “Supergreen Shake” which contains a
heaping helping of Living Fuel’s “Super Greens,” raw goat milk, a
spoonful of extra virgin coconut oil, blueberries, blackberries,
bananas, and strawberries. Super Greens contains concentrated
sources of vitamins, minerals, proteins, essential fats, enzymes, coenzymes,
herbs, botanical extracts, and soluble and insoluble plant
fibers from fresh, high-quality, mostly organic, non-GMO, nutrientrich
foods and supplements. Super Greens is a whole, raw, wild
crafted, complete, foundational “super food.” It is a blend of organic,
all natural foods that have been optimized with the most bioavailable
and usable nutrients in existence. This product combines
the nutrients of more vegetables and fruits than you could possibly
eat. It even includes chlorella, spirulina, and probiotics.
Living Fuel’s “Super Berry” will also provide you total nutrition and
great taste, but rather than getting the greens in the “Super Greens,”
the “Super Berry” contains whole organic strawberries, raspberries,
blueberries, and cranberries. Living Fuel provides you with high
quality nutrition and has more potassium than bananas, more
calcium than milk, more fiber than oatmeal, more friendly bacteria
than yogurt, more protein that 6 eggs, and more vitamins, minerals,
and antioxidants than a whole day’s supply of fruits and vegetables.
Those concerned about their health, and those with allergies and
other condition, can confidently consume either of these products
Chapter 14 – The “Exceptional 11” Cancer – Step Outside the Box
because they have no GMO, no pesticides, no sugar, no wheat, no
dairy, no eggs, no maltodextrin, no fillers, no artificial colorings, no
irradiation, no herbicides, no soy, no yeast, no whey, no nuts, no
preservatives, no artificial colors, and no hydrogenated oils! Whew!
In my opinion, there are no other supplements comparable to Living
Fuel’s “Super Greens“ and “Super Berries.” Both can actually can be
used either as a supplement or a meal replacement. They are “head
and shoulders” above the pack. If you can only take one supplement,
take Living Fuel’s “Super Greens” or “Super Berries.” You will be
glad you did.
Did you know that if you sleep with a nightlight, you are increasing
your risk of cancer? It has been shown that light exposure at night
suppresses your production of melatonin. This, in turn, can lead to
increased risk of cancer.
So, what exactly is melatonin? Melatonin is a hormone which
modulates our neurotransmitters. It is produced from the amino
acid tryptophan by the pineal gland (a pea-sized gland in the brain )
when the lights go out at night. It’s the reason you get sleepy when
it’s dark. Melatonin also is produced by the retina and, in vastly
greater amounts, by the gastrointestinal system. Melatonin levels
peak during the night but also increase after eating, which explains
why you get sleepy after a meal. Melatonin is highly fat soluble and
also water soluble, thus enabling it to easily penetrate the cell
membrane, cytoplasm, and nucleus.
According to oncology research scientist, Dr. Eileen M. Lynch,
“Melatonin’s amphiphilicity, or ability to both absorb and repel
water - in conjunction with its ability to act as a weak preventive
antioxidant, a weak metal ion chelator, and in certain circumstances,
a direct free radical scavenger - enables it to counteract oxidative
stress within the chaotic tumor microenvironment.”
Chapter 14 – The “Exceptional 11” Cancer – Step Outside the Box
Since over 75% of cancer shows oxidated DNA damage, the
statement by Dr. Lynch above is very important. Since melatonin is
a free radical scavenger, it is important to note that it rivals vitamin
C in its ability to counteract the oxidating effects of many toxins.
But not only does melatonin act as a free radical scavenger, it also is
a hormone that kills cancer cells! According to Dr. Lynch,
“Melatonin plays a critical role in the host defense system against
cancer’s progression by activating the cytokine system, which exerts
growth-inhibiting properties, and by stimulating the cytotoxic
activity of macrophages and monocytes.”
Multiple studies have indicated the cytotoxic effects of melatonin,
including at 2002 article in Tumor Biology published by Dr. K..
Winczyk and colleagues entitled “Possible involvement of the
nuclear RZR/ROR-alpha receptor in the antitumor action of
melatonin on murine Colon 38 cancer.” In another article by Dr. P.
Lissoni and colleagues in the 1989 European Journal of Cancer &
Clinical Oncology, melatonin has also been shown to boost the
immune system.
In his 2004 report to the American Association for Cancer Research,
Dr. David E. Blask reported that melatonin puts breast cancer cells
to sleep, and it also slows breast cancer growth by 70%. Breast
cancers get “turned on” by linoleic acids (omega-6 fats). However,
melatonin interacts with linoleic acid. At a news conference, Dr.
Blast stated, “This breast cancer rev-up mechanism gets revved
down by melatonin. Nighttime melatonin is a relevant anticancer
signal to human breast cancers. Ninety percent of human breast
cancers have specific receptors for this signal.”
Blask’s team exposed lab mice with human breast cancers to
constant light. Guess what happened: tumor growth skyrocketed.
According to Dr. Blask, “With constant light, tumors grow seven
times faster and soak up incredible amounts of linoleic acid. During
Chapter 14 – The “Exceptional 11” Cancer – Step Outside the Box
the day, the cancer cells are awake and linoleic acid stimulates their
growth. But at night cancer cells go to sleep. When we turn on
lights at night for a long time, we suppress melatonin and revert
back to the daytime condition.”
Additional research corroborates the fact that melatonin can kill
many different types of human tumor cells, including a
groundbreaking 2000 study performed by 3 Russian physicians,
Riabykh, Nikolaeva, and Bodrova (Vestnik Rossiiskoi Akademii
Meditsinskikh Nauk). A report by Dr. R.M. Sainz et al in the 2003
issue of Cellular Molecular Life Science indicates that melatonin is a
naturally produced cytotoxin which can induce tumor cell death
(apoptosis). Interestingly, Dr. Lissoni also discovered that melatonin
inhibits angiogenesis, which is the development of new tumor blood
vessels. (Dr. P. Lissoni, et al, Neuroendocrinology Letter, 2001).
A growing body of evidence linking increased light at night (LAN)
to certain types of cancer has led researchers to suspect it could be
connected to the steady increase in cases of childhood leukemia.
Scientists presenting research at the First International Scientific
Conference on Childhood Leukemia said that light at night and
working night shifts (which disrupts the body’s circadian rhythm, or
internal clock) have both been associated with an increased risk of
breast and colorectal cancer. “We don’t know whether abnormal
light exposure is generating this higher incidence of childhood
leukemia or not, but in view of what we know of other forms of
cancer this is not unreasonable,” said Russell Foster, a molecular
neuroscientist at Imperial College London, in an interview.
You have to wonder if the rapid growth of television and video
games over the last 30 to 40 years has contributed to the growth in
childhood leukemia. Children are staying up later and later, and this
LAN may be suppressing the natural production of melatonin that
would otherwise fight the free radicals that damage DNA and lead to
cancer. Is it just a coincidence that childhood leukemia has literally
Chapter 14 – The “Exceptional 11” Cancer – Step Outside the Box
exploded at the same time as the escalation of television and video
“Compared with other working women, female night-shift workers
have about a 50% greater risk of developing breast cancer,” says
William Hrushesky of Dorn Veterans Affairs Medical Center in
Columbia, S.C. That presumably explains why the original Harvard
study of nurses, which was led by Eva S. Schernhammer, found that
shift workers had an elevated risk of breast cancer (Science News,
1/17/01, p. 317). More recently, Schernhammer and her Harvard
colleague Susan E. Hankinson found that women who happen to
have above-average melatonin concentrations are relatively unlikely
to develop breast cancer. “Those with higher levels seem to have
lower breast cancer risk,” said Schernhammer. She and Hankinson
reported the data in the July 20, 2005 Journal of the National Cancer
You would hypothesize that if melatonin production is “triggered”
by darkness, then those who would have the greatest production
would be blind people, wouldn’t you? Well, guess what….in a 1998
study by Doctors Feychting and Osterlund, higher melatonin levels
have been found in blind and visually impaired people, along with
correspondingly lower incidences of cancer compared to those with
normal vision, thus suggesting a role for melatonin in the reduction
of cancer incidence (“Reduced cancer incidence among the blind.”
Epidemiology. 1998).
Several studies have shown that the circadian rhythm is involved in
tumor suppression at various levels and t regulates the immune
response. This being so, it only makes sense that the disruption of
the circadian rhythm could lead to a weakened immune system and
the growth of cancerous tumors. However, melatonin has been
shown to act as a “circadian referee” and is able to regulate the
body’s internal clock, thus keeping the immune system at its highest
level of surveillance. “Sleep per se is not important for melatonin,”
says Dr. Russel J. Reiter, a neuroendocrinologist at the University of
Chapter 14 – The “Exceptional 11” Cancer – Step Outside the Box
Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio. “But darkness is.”
Recent studies have found reduced levels of melatonin in the
cerebrospinal fluid of patients with Alzheimer’s disease compared to
age-matched control subjects (H. Tohgi, 1992; D.J. Skene, 1990).
Since circadian rhythms are disrupted in Alzheimer’s disease, it is
interesting to speculate whether restoration of melatonin to normal
levels in these patients would alleviate other symptoms as well.
Melatonin should probably be taken 30 minutes to one hour before
sleeping. You can find melatonin in any health food store.
Soil Based Organisms (SBOs)
It is commonly believed that all bacteria are bad. But this is not so.
Optimal gastrointestinal health depends on the balance of beneficial
bacteria and pathogenic (disease causing) bacteria. When illness
strikes, it is usually because the beneficial bacteria have diminished
(oftentimes due to antibiotics, a diet high in sugar, steroids,
chemotherapy, or other medications). It is well established that
infection and toxins from pathogenic bacteria, fungi, and viruses are
one of the causes of cancer.
In the first edition of this book, this section was entitled “Probiotics
(beneficial bacteria).” In this 2nd edition, I have changed the title to
“Soil Based Organisms (SBOs).” SBOs are beneficial bacteria that live
in soil. Until the 19th century, when food processing replaced
ingestion of raw fruit and vegetables, SBOs formed a regular part of
our diet. By around 1900, their presence in the food chain had
seriously dwindled. Both modern agricultural methods with their
over-reliance on powerful pesticides, fungicides, and germicidal
chemicals and heat-based food processing are toxic to SBOs.
Why are Soil Based Organisms so important? We should have a
balance of about 85% good to 15% harmful organisms in the
intestinal tract. But most of us today have the opposite ratio,
Chapter 14 – The “Exceptional 11” Cancer – Step Outside the Box
creating a chronically unhealthy condition. Did you know that
chlorinated water not only kills harmful bacteria in drinking water,
but also kills the “good” bacteria in your digestive tract as it passes
through? It’s no wonder that we are sick all the time!
The gut of every healthy person contains about 3½ pounds of
beneficial bacteria that produce essential vitamins and hormones.
These bacteria, of which SBOs are a vital source, help your digestive
system break down proteins, fats, and carbohydrates, as well as
digest waste. Most importantly they compete with undesirable
micro-organisms, like yeasts, fungi, bacteria and parasites, to keep
their numbers under control.
Supplementing with traditional probiotics is not always the best
answer, since oftentimes they will not survive their passage through
the stomach’s acidic terrain. However, unlike traditional probiotics,
SBOs are extremely robust biologically. Once in your gut they get to
work to displace and then devour any opportunistic pathogens.
They also possess a powerful antiviral action, which helps protect
against infection.
The power of SBOs lies in their ability to secrete specialized
proteins, which stimulate your immune system to produce more
white blood cells and antibodies that dramatically boost your
immunity. Without SBOs to assist digestion, the bowels can soon
end up becoming toxic waste dumps for rotting fecal matter. Other
health benefits of SBOs include virtual immunity from colds and flu,
stronger digestive capabilities, elimination of constipation, diarrhea,
and other digestive disorders, increased and/or stabilized
metabolism, and increased energy levels.
Regular supplementation with SBOs repopulates your intestinal tract
with good bacteria, thus optimizing your immune system and
fighting off disease. Any anti-cancer diet should include
supplementation with SBOs. I recommend either Royal Flora
(www.thewolfeclinic.com/flora.html) or Primal Defense®
(www.gardenoflife.com). Both of these products are excellent!
Chapter 14 – The “Exceptional 11” Cancer – Step Outside the Box
Proteolytic Enzymes (Pancreatic Enzymes)
The chemistry of digestion is really simple; with all the three major
types of food being protein, carbohydrates, and fats. But remember,
the important thing is not how much food we eat, but rather how
much food we digest. And how do we digest food? Enzymes. God
has made our bodies in a miraculous way, and we digest these three
types of food into their usable forms - proteins into amino acids,
carbohydrates into glucose, and fats into fatty acids. There are three
major classes of enzymes: metabolic enzymes (enzymes which work
in blood, tissues, and organs), food enzymes from raw food, and
digestive enzymes. Enzymes are absolutely critical to the digestive
and nutritional processes in the body.
Each and every day, the pancreas secretes about 1.7 liters of
pancreatic juice in the small intestine. In this juice are enzymes –
including lipases, proteases and amylases – required for the digestion
and absorption of food. Lipases, along with bile, help digest fats.
Amylases break down starch molecules into more absorbable sugars
and are secreted by the salivary glands as well as the pancreas. The
proteases secreted by the pancreas (trypsin, chymotrypsin and
carboxypeptidase) break protein molecules into single amino acids.
There are also 2 plant-based proteases – bromelain (from the stems
of pineapples) and papain (from unripe papayas).
Let’s take a close look at the proteases produced by our pancreas,
oftentimes referred to as “proteolytic” enzymes or “pancreatic”
enzymes. When a “foreign invader” (toxin) enters our system, it is
our leukocytes that lead the charge of our immune response.
However, cancer cells have a protein coating which renders them
“unrecognizable” to the leukocytes and keeps them from destroying
the cancer cells. However, in a healthy person’s body, the
proteolytic enzymes destroy cancer cells by breaking down the
protein coating around the cell, and then the leukocytes attack the
remaining cancer cell and destroy it.
Chapter 14 – The “Exceptional 11” Cancer – Step Outside the Box
However, when we eat a diet high in overcooked proteins, which
lack food enzymes, our own proteolytic enzymes are called upon to
digest the proteins. We only have a limited supply of these
proteolytic enzymes, and if this supply is being exhausted to digest
protein in foods, then little or none is left to break down the protein
coating on cancer cells. Thus the cells begin to flourish and multiply
because our leukocytes cannot kill them.
The truth is that cancer is oftentimes a disease of protein metabolism
because the proteolytic enzyme “cancer-fighting mechanism” can be
overwhelmed by consuming protein rich foods at inappropriate
times or in excessive amounts. The body needs about 12 hours each
day without protein consumption for its enzyme cancer-fighting
mechanism to work optimally.
My good friend, Dr. Dick Couey, professor of Physiology and
Nutrition at Baylor University states, “I will never eat another meal
without taking a plant enzyme supplement.” I agree with Dr. Couey.
I recommend either Intenzyme Forte or Megazyme Forte or
Vitälzym. Actually, Megazyme Forte is probably the best of the
three supplements because it contains zinc. In any case, you can
find all three products online by doing a simple word search.
Selenium is one of the most effective naturally occurring weapons
against cancer. And, like most healthy things, it is something that
many of us are not getting enough of. The mineral selenium has
been shown in multiple studies to be an effective tool in warding off
various types of cancer, including breast, esophageal, stomach,
prostate, liver, and bladder cancers. Most Americans get less than
half of the recommended dose of 200 micrograms a day, according to
Life Extension Foundation’s Disease Prevention and Treatment.
Selenium was initially used in conventional medicine as a treatment
for dandruff, but our comprehension of the mineral has dramatically
increased over the past 20 years. It is an essential component of a
Chapter 14 – The “Exceptional 11” Cancer – Step Outside the Box
powerful antioxidant manufactured by the body. This antioxidant,
called glutathione peroxidase, defends specifically against peroxides,
a type of free radical that attacks fats. Like other antioxidants,
glutathione peroxidase also reduces the risk of developing cancer
and heart diseases and stimulates the immune system’s response to
Research shows selenium, especially when used in conjunction with
vitamins C, E, and beta-carotene, works to block many chemical
reactions that create free radicals in the body. Remember, free
radicals can damage our cellular DNA, which eventually can lead to
degenerative diseases like cancer. Selenium also helps stop damaged
DNA molecules from reproducing and proliferating, a process called
mitosis. In other words, selenium acts to prevent tumors from
developing. “It contributes towards the death of cancerous and precancer
cells. Their death appears to occur before they replicate, thus
helping stop cancer before it gets started,” says Dr. James
Howenstine in A Physician’s Guide to Natural Health Products That
Selenium research over the past 20 years has focused heavily on a
novel form of selenium: methylselenocysteine (MSC). A relatively
simple organic selenium compound, MSC is formed naturally in
various plants, including garlic, broccoli, wild leeks, and onions
grown on high selenium soil. MSC is easily converted to
methylselenol by an enzyme called beta-lyase, which is widely
distributed in the body. According to Dr. Daniel Medina at the
Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology, Baylor College of
Medicine in Houston, Texas, methylselenol has been shown to be an
effective anticancer form of selenium that kills cancer cells through
“apoptosis,” which is programmed cell death. (“Semethylselenocysteine:
A new compound for chemoprevention of
breast cancer. “ Nutrition & Cancer 2001, 40:12-17.)
Methylselenol is also known to inhibit angiogenesis in beginning
cancer tumors. Angiogenesis, the creation of new blood vessels, is
necessary for cancer cells to grow into a tumor, because cancer cells
Chapter 14 – The “Exceptional 11” Cancer – Step Outside the Box
need a far greater blood supply than normal cells to survive. (Lu, J.
and Jiang, C. “Antiangiogenic activity of selenium in cancer
chemoprevention” Nutrition & Cancer 2001, 40: 64-73.) As Medina
and colleagues concluded: “[Selenium] methylselenocysteine …
holds promise as a true second-generation selenium
chemoprevention [of cancer] compound because of its superior in
vivo efficacy, virtually nonexistent toxicity, low body accumulation,
and simple formulation.” MSC represents the safest and most
effective anticancer form of selenium available today.
The most important blind study on selenium and cancer was a
double-blind intervention trial conducted by Dr. L.C. Clark and
colleagues at the University of Arizona Cancer Center. When all the
results were tabulated, it became clear that the selenium-treated
group developed almost 66% fewer prostate cancers, 50% fewer
colorectal cancers, and about 40% fewer lung cancers as compared
with the placebo group. (All these results were statistically
significant.) Selenium-treated subjects also experienced a statistically
significant (17%) decrease in overall mortality, a greater than 50%
decrease in lung cancer deaths, and nearly a 50% decrease in total
cancer deaths. (Journal of the American Medical Association,
Selenium supplement intake, even in the form of safe MSC, should
be limited to 200 to 400 mcg daily for maximum safety. I have heard
of alternative cancer physicians using up to 2,000 mcg daily, but this
is not recommended if you are not under the supervision of a
physician, since selenium dosages above 850 mcg daily are known to
cause selenium toxicity.
Some of the best natural sources of selenium are Brazil nuts, garlic,
broccoli sprouts, and brussel sprouts. All of these foods contain
selenium in the form of MSC. Though garlic has the greatest
concentration of MSC, most Americans are not likely to eat enough
of it to produce the desired results, so Brazil nuts, broccoli sprouts
and brussel sprouts are your best bets.

Vitamin D
Technically speaking, vitamin D is not really a vitamin . . . it is more
appropriately classified as a pro-hormone. Vitamin D has also been
shown to be crucial in preventing cancer. The mechanisms by
which vitamin D reduces the risk of cancer are fairly well
understood. They include enhancing calcium absorption, inducing
cell differentiation, increasing apoptosis (programmed cell death),
reducing metastasis and proliferation, and reducing angiogenesis
(formation of new blood vessels).
So, where do I buy the best vitamin D supplement? The answer
is…YOU DON’T. Vitamin D supplements are virtually worthless.
Here’s why: The vitamin D in milk and in most vitamin supplements
is vitamin D2 and is synthetic. Vitamin D2 is also called
ergocalciferol. It is not the vitamin D that you need to prevent
cancer and degenerative diseases.
The vitamin D which you need is vitamin D3, also called calciferol.
The best place to get vitamin D3 is ultraviolet B (UVB) rays from
sunlight. That’s right! After years of denying the health benefits of
sunlight, conventional researchers are finally starting to recognize
the important role that ultraviolet light plays in human health.
Getting sunlight on your skin, research now shows, is extremely
important for preventing and even reversing chronic diseases,
including cancer.
The time required in the sun is probably 15 to 30 minutes per day.
The optimal time for solar UVB production of vitamin D may be
around the middle of the day when the ratio of UVB to UVA is
highest and the required exposure times are shortest. However, this
works only when the sun is elevated high enough. During winter
months, it is oftentimes impossible to produce any vitamin D from
sunlight, depending upon how far north you live.
However, when sunlight (specifically solar UVB) is not available, an
excellent source of vitamin D that will also provide beneficial
Chapter 14 – The “Exceptional 11” Cancer – Step Outside the Box
omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA (which are pivotal in preventing
heart disease, cancer, and many other diseases) is cod liver oil. The
highest quality and best tasting cod liver oil I have found is Carlson’s
Cod Liver Oil (the kiddos call it “Cod Liberty Oil” ☺) and the best
prices are found at www.iherb.com.
However, you must be cautious when using cod liver oil, as it is
possible to overdose on vitamin D. For this reason, cod liver oil
should be consumed only in cool weather months unless you can
test your vitamin D levels to make sure that they are not too high.
In warm weather, most people get enough vitamin D from sunshine,
so don’t take cod liver oil during the summer months.
Zeolites are natural volcanic minerals with a unique, complex
crystalline structure. Zeolites, in general, have been used for almost
1,000 years as a traditional remedy throughout Asia to promote
overall health and well-being. A chemist in a small pharmaceutical
company in Ohio was intrigued by the power of zeolites. He
researched them, purified them, and found some amazingly
powerful effects. He eventually was granted a patent.
One amazing property of zeolites is that their honeycomb
framework of cavities and channels (like cages) work at the cellular
level trapping heavy metals and toxins. As you know, toxins poison
our air, our water, our food, and our bodies. According to the EPA,
80,000 chemicals are used commercially in the United States, and
75,000 of them are potentially hazardous to our health. The
Environmental Defense Council reports that more than four billion
pounds of toxic chemicals are released into the environment each
year, including 72 million pounds of known carcinogens.
Zeolites are one of the few negatively charged minerals in nature.
Basically, they act as magnets, attracting positively charged heavy
metals and toxins, capturing them, and removing them from the
body. They are an extremely effective chelating agent. Here’s how:
Chapter 14 – The “Exceptional 11” Cancer – Step Outside the Box
within the structure of the zeolites, there are certain “cages,” inside
of which are positive ions. The positive ions switch places with the
heavy metals, pesticides, or herbicides, which are also positive ions,
and then the cage structure of zeolites tightly binds them. One
amazing quality of this “caged binding” effect is that the toxins and
heavy metals are 100% excreted. In other words, they don’t get
“relocated” to another spot in the body, they actually get evicted!
LifeLink Pharmaceuticals recently completed a preliminary, 14-
month, open-label study of 65 “terminal” cancer patients. These
people had various types of cancer, and all of them had been sent
home to die. After taking purified zeolite, 51 of them (78%)
experienced complete remission, which means that their cancer
disappeared. This preliminary research suggests that purified and
activated zeolite may be effective in treating all forms of cancer,
leukemia, and lymphoma.
During in vitro studies, all cancer cells tested were destroyed in 72
hours. Here is a quote straight from the U.S. Patent. “The
composition is synthesized from a naturally occurring non-toxic
zeolites, and has a 100% kill rate within 72 hours against .....
epithelial cell cancers. It is not cytoxic to healthy human cells.”
(LifeLink Pharmaceuticals, U.S. Patent #6288045, 2001).
The zeolite product which is head and shoulders above the rest is
called Super Z-LiteTM, which is available in both liquid and capsules.
Super Z-LiteTM is effective against harsh microorganisms such as
bacillus, fungus, mildew, staphylococcus, and streptococcus. Further
it supports a healthy immune system, it can function as a broad
spectrum anti-viral agent, it helps to balance pH levels in the body,
it reduces allergic reactions, reduces diarrhea and removes heavy
metals such as mercury, arsenic, lead and cadmium from the body.
Super Z-LiteTM can be effective even in low doses as it fulfills its
function as a collector of heavy metals, harmful toxins, antioxidants,
and carcinogens throughout all parts of the body as it delivers
Chapter 14 – The “Exceptional 11” Cancer – Step Outside the Box
silicates and plant minerals to cells. These collected undesirable
factors are quickly disposed of by the body.
Here is a summary of the benefits of Super Z-LiteTM :
􀂾 Super Z-LiteTM Liquid Extract will penetrate the blood/brain
barrier faster and deliver an immediate energy boost and
increase of oxygen levels.
􀂾 Super Z-LiteTM Capsules can reach the intestines where they
chelate heavy metals and toxins much more thoroughly
􀂾 Improve your alkalinity (pH levels)
􀂾 Improve your alkalinity (pH levels)
􀂾 Neutralize residual harmful acids.
􀂾 Scavenge heavy metals, toxins and free radicals
􀂾 Increase your oxygen levels
􀂾 Reduce allergic reactions and ameliorates diarrhea.
􀂾 Help the body fend off harmful microorganisms such as
bacteria, fungus, mildew and staphylococcus/streptococcus
􀂾 Support and maintain a healthy immune system
􀂾 Help the breakdown and dispose of heavy metals, toxins and
drug residues from your body
􀂾 Improve nutrient absorption
In the first edition of this book, I hadn’t researched zeolites enough
to recommend them as a cancer treatment. From further research, I
have concluded that zeolites, specifically Super Z-LiteTM , should be a
part of everyone’s daily supplementation, for cancer patients and
non-cancer patients alike. There is truly no other substance on earth
comparable to Super Z-LiteTM.
