Which hushed-up cancer cure are you not hearing about?
Colostrum contains essential nutrients that help build a powerful immune system and encourage growth. And that's not just true for baby cows — it works for humans, too — adults included.
In fact, the colostrum from cow's milk is much higher in immune factors than a human mother's colostrum! It's the immune boosting properties that make colostrum an important cancer fighting weapon.
Colostrum, by the way, is found in the breast milk of ALL mammals in the hours after giving birth. Most of the research has been conducted on cow's milk.
According to Dr. Daniel G. Clark, author of the book Colostrum, Life's First Food, "bovine colostrum rebuilds the immune system, destroys viruses, bacteria, and fungi, accelerates healing of all body tissue, helps lose weight, burn fat, increase bone and lean muscle mass and slows down and even reverses aging."
Now that's an impressive résumé!
The best OFFENSE really is a good DEFENSE!
You might already know that your body experiences abnormal cancer cell growth all the time. But if your primary defense against illness—your immune system—is healthy and strong, it simply destroys these cells before they have a chance to spread and do lasting harm.
One of the reasons the risk of cancer goes up as we age is that our immune systems wear out. Children naturally have stronger immune systems.
So a key way to fight cancer cells is by strengthening your immune system. And colostrum could be a perfect way to help do this!
Scientists have found that bovine colostrum contains compounds that can cause apoptosis—that is, natural cell death, the same as healthy cells experience. Cancer cells don't die off the way healthy cells do, so inducing this natural process is a major goal of cancer treatment.
What's more, colostrum is full of immune boosting transfer factors. These include hydrogen peroxide and protein molecules (antibodies) called immunoglobulins.
Your cells naturally produce hydrogen peroxide to control metabolism and to fight germs. In his book Alternative Medicine, author Burton Goldberg explains that your immune system unleashes these substances to attack, destroy and remove invading pathogens.
But there's another compound in bovine colostrum that's a superstar germ fighter in its own right…
The first food may be the BEST food
to kill cancer cells!
Human colostrum contains a rich supply of the protein called lactoferrin. This single strand of amino acids has a remarkable ability to bind to iron.
Why is that important? Because in doing so, lactoferrin prevents cancer cells from using the iron for nourishment. Researchers believe this type of milk protein actually helps starve cancer cells to death!
Lactoferrin is found abundantly in the first breast milk from a mother who has just given birth. It immediately strengthens a baby's immune system.
But it's not only found in "new milk." It's also found in the subsequent milk supply of both humans and cows. Mother Nature knew EXACTLY what newborns would need to stay strong and healthy!
Now scientists are finding out exactly why this is so. A review of lactoferrin clinical studies published in the journal Biochemistry and Cell Biology showed that bovine lactoferrin significantly inhibited colon, esophagus, lung, and bladder cancers in laboratory rats.
In one study, Japanese researchers found that lactoferrin stopped tumor growth in laboratory mice. It also prevented cancer from spreading in these animals.
The researchers studied the effects of bovine-derived lactoferrin on cells intended to mimic either skin cancer or leukemia. They injected mice with experimental cancer cells that are known to spread easily from the original tumor to other organs and tissues.
When researchers dispensed lactoferrin after tumors formed—they found it immediately started working to suppress tumor growth.
Plus, they realized the spread of cancer cells to the lungs and liver was significantly less than in control animals that did not receive lactoferrin!
What's even more amazing is that this one protein also has antiviral, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties too.
And just think—all of this is part of what bovine colustrum can do to help protect you from cancerous growths!
Colostrum could be your
all-in-one medicine cabinet!
A report from Zoltan Rona, M.D., published in the American Journal of Natural Medicine, says that bovine colustrum can also play a role in:
So you might be wondering, "How can I get my hands on this stuff?" Well,
bovine colostrum is commercially available in powder, capsule and chewable supplements.
Dr. Rona says the highest quality colostrum is produced organically and should be free of pesticides, herbicides, hormones, steroids, antibiotics and other chemicals.
Improper processing often produces colostrum products that are not biologically active. Dr. Rona said the substance can also be weakened when it is formed into tablets or provided in a less concentrated liquid form.
Dr. Rona recommends powder as the best form of colustrum for enjoying optimal health benefits.
If you decide to try it, you may find that you've stumbled on a total immune system enhancer that can help keep you healthy for years to come! Of course, we cover colostrum and lactoferrin in our new Complete Guide to Alternative Cancer Treatments. This 460-page book is free to people who join our Alternative Cancer Research Institute.
In our last issue we reported on a very surprising cause of cancer deaths. I didn't know anything about this one till Mindy McHorse, one of our talented contributors, drew my attention to it. If you missed this important news, scroll down and read it now.
Warning: If You Have This,
Cancer Might be Next
Here's a little-known fact: People with blood clots are much more likely to develop cancer than the general population. It usually surfaces a year or two after the blood clot develops.
The risk is especially high if you have unexplained blood clots. Meaning, they can't be linked to family history, pregnancy, or being immobile for a long period of time. And if your doctor has you on blood thinners, this means he thinks you’re at risk for clots. Maybe he doesn’t know, but it also means you may be precancerous, too.
But blood clots don't just make you more susceptible to developing cancer. They're also a huge risk if you already have cancer. Blood clots are the second leading cause of death in cancer patients.
That's why I want to tell you how to avoid them, manage them, and treat them naturally.
Preliminary, non-human studies have shown extracts of the 3 all natural ingredients found to inhibit certain forms of cancer are actually proven conclusively to form a breakthrough discovery in joint health.
How blood clots jack up your cancer risk
One explanation for the connection is that early-stage cancers might cause clotting before other cancer symptoms appear. A blood clot that can't be explained in any other way could be an early sign of cancer.
But — hold on — we don't know this for sure yet.
You see, another possible explanation is that patients who get hospitalized for blood clots undergo a battery of tests, and those tests may happen to detect early cancer. If this turns out to be true, cancer and blood clots aren't directly related.
And a final possible explanation is that some cancers have the same risk factors as blood clots. I wish this was simple and black and white, but it's not. Even so, blood clots should be viewed as a warning sign of cancer.
What are blood clots, anyway?
A blood clot is basically a soft, lumpy mass of thickened blood. Clotting is crucial for a healthy body, since that's how your body stops bleeding after an injury.
But a blood clot is harmful when it blocks an artery or vein and stops blood flow (in which case it's called a thrombus). A thrombus in the brain causes a stroke. In the heart, it causes a heart attack. In the lung, it's a pulmonary embolism. If a thrombus is in your leg, you have deep vein thrombosis.
Symptoms depend on where the thrombus is:
If you have a blood clot,
should the doctor look for cancer?
Let's say you have an unexplained blood clot. How far should your doctor go in trying to find and diagnose cancer? A lot of doctors might push for every diagnostic test available, from blood tests for biochemical markers to CT scans to endoscopy (that's where they stick a camera in a tube to examine your stomach or bowels).
But routine extensive screening isn't appropriate. For starters, invasive tests — surgery and biopsies -- have risks. There's also the psychological burden of going through a battery of tests and waiting for results.
Of course, extensive testing costs a lot. But here's an even bigger problem: There aren't reliable screening tests for the cancers most commonly associated with blood clots (brain, liver, pancreas, and ovary). These cancers are hard to find.
The best option is for a medical professional to do a thorough clinical evaluation — medical history, physical exam, basic lab tests, etc. This approach highlights abnormalities in most patients with unexplained clots. That's the conventional testing route.
A wake-up call to get your act together
As you might figure, I prefer alternatives. Our Special Report by Dr. Morton Walker, Natural Cancer Remedies that Work, devotes a chapter to alternative cancer screening tests. I'd draw your attention to one in particular, the AMAS blood test. According to Dr. Walker, this test can tell you if you have cancer as much as a year-and-a-half before conventional tests are able to do so.
My good friend Bill Henderson advocates another alternative test that you have to get by mailing a urine sample to a lab in the Philippines. It's somewhat more involved, but it gives the patient more information than does the AMAS test. Bill is very enthusiastic about it. You can learn the details from his Special Report How to Cure Almost Any Cancer at Home for $5.15 a Day.
The shortcoming of both these tests is that they don't tell you where you have cancer or what type of cancer you have. They just indicate you have cancer somewhere. But they can be an early indication you need to make the lifestyle changes that will get you healthy, BEFORE the cancer becomes serious enough to propel you into the conventional cut-burn-and-poison medical system.
Frankly, I'm trying to make these changes now rather than wait till a blood clot or a test tells me I'm in trouble. But some people need to be told the sky is falling before they do something.
If you're found to be cancer-free (phew!), schedule another physical exam or get another test every six months for the two years following the appearance of your clot. This seems to be the most logical way to detect most cancers.
How cancer jacks up your blood clot risk
Now, let's look at the flip side — the fact that you're at greater risk for blood clots if you already have cancer. Here are the stats:
Conventional cancer treatments are part of the reason cancer often leads to blood clots. Chemotherapy, for instance, activates your clotting system. Chemotherapy treatment can raise your risk of blood clots up to 6.5 times above what's seen in the general population.
Other mainstream cancer treatments that bump up blood-clot risk are high-dose steroids, hormone therapy, and a new class of anti-cancer drugs known as anti-angiogenic agents. This last group prevents the growth of new blood vessels in cancers but also significantly heightens risk for blood clots.
Surgery also puts cancer patients at a higher risk for blood clots, because in most cases you lose your ability to move, at least in part, until you fully recover.
What's more, a number of cancer patients who get central catheters placed for long-term chemo administration will develop catheter-related blood clots — which also delays administration of the chemotherapy and other medicines.
The mainstream approach for cancer patients undergoing heavy treatments like this is to be put on blood-thinners like warfarin and heparin for three to six months.
Natural ways to prevent blood clots
Blood clots are life-threatening, so you should always deal with them promptly. If you suspect you have one, go see your doctor immediately.
But if you're at elevated risk, or if you've already been diagnosed and you want to avoid future clots, here's what you can do:
PLEASE NOTE: If your doctors put you on pharmaceutical blood thinners like warfarin, the natural blood thinners such as enzymes or ginkgo may be too much of a good thing. Probably something should be cut back. My vote would be to cut back on the drugs, because the natural remedies are highly effective for this medical condition.
But you need to do this under the monitoring of a doctor — and that's another reason to seek care from doctors who are receptive to alternatives, not hostile to them.
As with most medical issues, taking care of yourself by eating well and exercising is your best line of attack. Take this advice and you'll reduce your risk for both blood clots and cancer.
