How can IBS lead to Cancer?

 

CAUSE and PROGRESSION

  • IBS develops when people eat less than 25-50 grams of fiber a day or have a Candida Infection.
    • IBS is chronic constipation, alternating constipation and diarrhea, spastic colon, abdominal cramps and tenderness, mucas, abdominal bloating and gas, or incomplete evacuation.
  • IBS can lead to Ulcerations & Inflammation.  (Source: Dr. Mark Bowles)

  •  
    • A diverticulum is a bulge of the inner colon lining through the colon’s muscular wall to its outer surface. 
    • Diverticulitis occurs when undigested foods become hard and dry, causing the colon walls to strain and break. 
    • A local infection in the colon develops, causing subsequent pain in the lower left corner of the abdomen, sometimes accompanied by fever and chills.
    • Many with Diverticulosis have been given the bad advice of severely restricting fiber.  Lack of fiber worsens the condition.
    • Fatty foods, Candida Infection and stress aggravate the condition.
  • Diverticulosis increases the risk of Colon Cancer as damaged cells replicate.  colon-cancer

 

 

SOLUTIONS to help

  1. REPAIR DAMAGED INTESTINE — Energizing Soy Protein, Vitalizer, Vivix
  2. CLEAN INTESTINE / KILL INFECTION — Acidopholis, Nutriferon, Vivix
  3. STOP INFLAMMATION — Vivix, GLA, OmegaGuard, Stomach Soothing Complex
  4. STRENGTHEN INTESTINAL MUSCLE / REMOVE TOXINS FROM INTESTINE & BLOOD — Herb Lax
  5. PREVENT 
    1. Drink 64 ounces of purified water.
    2. Eat 25-50 grams of fiber. 
      1. Eat a safe fiber supplement, fruits & vegetables with edible skins, & 100% whole grains.
      2. Insoluble fiber holds water in undigested food, making stools soft.
      3. Soluble fiber carries LDL cholesterol (bad fat) out of the body.
    3. Intake live enzymes to digest food.  — Alfalfa, EZgest

 

 

STATS

  • By age 60, 1/2 of North Americans have diverticulosis. 
  • By age 80, 2/3 have it.  
  • Digestive disorders have been prevented and reversed with immediate and consistant action.

 

 

BEGIN SOLUTION

 

Endometriosis alleviated, finally.

endo

Endometriosis.

 
I had this pain 25 out of 28 days each month for a number of years.  It was diagnosed through symptomology first, then surgical laporoscapy.
 

Doctors recommended:

  1. Morphine
  2. birth control
  3. laporoscapy surgery every couple years

I choose the laporoscapy surgery.  Unfortunately, because I still had the candida overgrowth, the endo returned within a few months.  I began searching alternative medicine archives. 

 

Alternative Approach: 

I tried this for 3 years, without cheating.

  1. organic, mostly raw food diet, no hormones or antibiotics
  2. purified water
  3. excercize (5-45 min day on mini trampoline, aerobic, stretching)
  4. avoided 37 food allergens (including dairy, wheat, egg, some beans, etc)
  5. no refined sugar, caffiene, chemical preservatives or food dyes
  6. many brands of supplements (starting with cheap ones, ending with expensive brands.
  7. followed candida diet (no sugars, vinegars, processed meats, etc)

After 3 years of disciplined struggle, I still had Endometriosis and systemic Candida Overgrowth.

 

What finally worked:

I got rid of endo and the candida infection with Shaklee’s technology based products. :
  1. ALKALINE CELLS: Created with Energizing Soy, Vitalizer, Osteomatrix & Alfalfa
  2. DIET: As Shaklee strengthened my body and my food allergies were overcome, I gradually add in more foods.
  3. CANDIDA: killing the candida overgrowth (which is usually the root cause of endo.)
  4. SCAR TISSUE: dissolved with Fiber Plan
  5. ENDOMETRIAL LINING: repaired with antioxidants (A, B, C, E)  
  6. NERVOUS SYSTEM: balanced with B-complex
  7. HORMONES/ CELLULAR REJUVINATION: balanced with lots of Energizing Soy Protein
  8. HORMONES / INFLAMMATION: balanced with essential oils (omegaguard, gla, lecithin)
  9. DNA REPAIR: repaired damage DNA with Vivix  (which also rebalances hormones, keeps candida astray and keeps inflamation down)
  10. EXCERCIZE: (5-45 min day on mini trampoline, aerobic, stretching)

 

Will it alleviate your pain?

Do you have endo or candida overgrowth

  • Take quiz to find out.  (endo quiz, candida quiz)
  • If you give your correct contact info, I’ll share and discuss your results with you.

 “One drawback of MBI: It uses about 8 to 10 times the radiation of mammograms, a dose that engineers like Hruska are trying to lower with newer technology. Other medical centers also are testing MBI.”

-By MARILYNN MARCHIONE, AP Medical Writer     (Komo News)

  • Is this a good idea?  Do you think this will cause more cancer growth or increased rate of cancer growth?

 

“But the group said its research has found that zinc-oxide nanoparticles can selectively kill cancer cells without harming normal cells.”

Sugar Sickness Alternatives

In cancer risk factors, cleanses, crohn's disease, diabetes, diet, digestion, Fertility, infection, sugar on November 15, 2008 at 7:42 pm

 

sugar

Deadly sweet? ?

  • Refined sugar is a simple carbohydrate because its been stripped of its nutrients. A sugar plant has nutrients. Sugar cane and molasses are more directly utilized, not extracted, and carry more of the nutrients to metabolize sugar.  more about sugar
  • Sugar drives insulin levels to abnormal heights, causing Type 2 Diabetes or Syndrome X.
  • Sugar depresses the immune system by slowing the ability of white blood cells to kill infection.  Think of a group of kids just after a sugary cereal breakfast; they’re very susceptible to passing around viruses and bacteria.
    • “Eating or drinking 100 grams (8 tbsp.) of sugar, the equivalent of about two cans of soda, can reduce the ability of white blood cells to kill germs by forty percent.  The immune-suppressing effect of sugar starts less than thirty minutes after ingestion and may last for five hours.” (from Feeding Your Immune System) 
  • Our body deals with excess sugar by creating more insulin.
    • What is the purpose of Insulin??  It is a hormone secreted by the pancreas. Its main function is to store energy from food. Only a small amount of carbs are stored as glycogen, the rest are converted into triglycerides. Yes, triglycerides! 
    • Why is insulin fluctuation problematic?  Cells become resistant when too much insulin is pumped. They turn off their insulin receptors and are not ready to receive energy from food. The cells are trying to protect themselves from the excess, so they send a signal that they’ve had enough.
  • Sugar depletes B vitamins and harms the nervous system.  Adrenaline is made from B vitamins; stress causes adrenaline production.  If too much adrenaline enters the system, cortisol is produced.  Cortisol harms many processes, including the nervous system.
  • Sugar harms digestion because it feeds candida which can lead to candida infection.
  • Sugar creates an acidic body system. (not acidic blood ph, but acidic cells created by consuming certain food types)  Acidic cells lead to all types of disease (allergy, cancer, diabetes, endo, candida, arthritis, etc.)

Alternatives to refined sugar? ?

  • Artificial sweetners:
    • The food industry has tried to create chemical imitations for sugar to help us avoid calories. Water is the only drink that truly has zero calories. A chemical concoction like diet soda dehydrates the body because it takes water away to dissolve and try to break down those chemicals.  All of the chemical sweetners have side effects.
    • Aspartame, or Nutra Sweet (brand name), is found in so many drinks, yogurts, gums, usually in food items traditionally sweetened with sugar, which people have decided they want to avoid, either to avoid calorie intake or tooth decay.
      • When the FDA approved aspartame, it was never intended to become so widely used, and the threshold for consumption by which they figured it would be “safe” for humans is usually surpassed by anyone taking more than one serving per day.
      • It was tested only in its powder form and then it was stated that it does not produce cancer in the animals, but does produce brain lesions.
      • In its liquid form it turns into poisonous wood alcohol (methanol). Methanol is stored in the liver and accumulates. 
      • Discovered by accident through biological warfare research and has become entrenched in our food supply.
      • Aspartame is linked to the rise in the rate of childhood seizures. (adapted from Chemical Crazy and Insulin Resistant by Sherrie Attila)
  • Natural Sweetners:
    • Sucanat is non-refined cane sugar which retains its molasses content. The pure dried cane juice is extracted by mechanical processes, heated and cooled at which point the small brown grainy crystals are formed. (from WikiPedia)
    • Xylitol is extracted from fruit, usually strawberries, raspberries, or blueberries. It is safe and good for preventing tooth decay. Many chewing gums and natural toothpastes are made with xylitol.  
      • Both sucanat and xylitol are able to be measured and used in a way similar to white sugar in cooking and baking.
    • Agave Nectar is a cactus plant similar to aloe vera. It doesn’t effect blood sugar levels.
    • Stevia is a sweet herb, not a sugary substance. It can be in liquid or powder and is measured in drops and has no effect on blood sugar.
    • Honey sugars are surrounded by nutrients to metabolize the sugar.  In recipies, increase flour or decrease liquid, add a bit of baking soda and powder.
    • Maple Syrup sugars are surrounded by nutrients to metabolize the sugar
    • Molasses is sugar which is not refined or whitened. It contains a good compliment of B vitamins. The strong flavor makes it inappropriate for some recipes. Available in granule form.
    • Ground dates add sweetness and fiber.
    • Applesauce adds moisture and sweetness.
    • Ground grapes add moisture and sweetness.

Sugar may be entrenched in our diets, but nutritious additions and alternatives can be found. Some families may wish to delete sugar completely. Artificial sweeteners should be avoided. Any change you can make to control sugar intake will be an improvement, and step by step, we can all build healthier habits.
