A “Shroom” to Conquer the World!

March 29th, 2017

The overwhelming majority of the requests we receive each day stem from immune system deficiency problems.

America’s over-reliance on pharmaceutical drugs and a truly destructive modern-day dietary lifestyle has literally destroyed our natural immunity. No wonder overnight calamities like the Bird Flu and Swine Flu wipe out thousand upon thousands of people.

The overuse of antibiotics has made the problem far worse! We wrote an in-depth report on this topic. If you missed it, read our article published on our website, What’s for dinner – Antibiotics!

While living in China studying traditional Chinese medicine many years ago, I noticed that almost no one ever came down with a cold and flu. It was practically unheard of there.

I asked my professor about this and he responded the Chinese cook with and brew teas from “magic mushrooms” that boost the body’s immune response. He likened it to having a heavy door to your house, where intruders could not get in.

When I came to the United States, I brought with me a notebook filled with research on how each of these mushroom worked, and put together a formula called Immune Support that is so incredible; we call it the Mack Truck of immunity boosting formulations because it’s THAT powerful.

“Don’t Wait Until You Are Thirsty to Dig a Well”

(old Chinese saying)

So many people are sick as a dog, or worse they are in a desperate fight for their life.

The mad medico’s keep pumping people full of drugs, and when that doesn’t work, they reach for chemotherapy and radiation, which just makes the problem worse by destroying the very immune system that is struggling with all its might to fight the infection or disease that has taken hold. Where is the logic in that, I ask you?

Despite having more than 20% of the world’s population, the Chinese do not have the incidence of illness like Americans do. If they do get a cold or flu, it goes away in days instead of sticking around for weeks or months like it does here in America.

What is their secret, you ask?

Mushrooms! Yes…Medicinal mushrooms with incredible healing powers.

Chinese medicine extends over 5000 years. Count all the zeroes will you, that’s Five Thousand, not a measly 120 years like in America. The Chinese observe “nature in action” and then apply it.

The power of these extraordinary mushrooms to boost the immune system to respond to everything from the common cold, deadly viruses, influenza attacks, Multiple Sclerosis, Lupus, and even fatal cancers, is renowned in the world of alternative medicine.

These are not mushrooms you see in a supermarket or farmers market; they are gifts from the Creator of the universe.

15 Foods to Cancer-Proof Your Body

June 5th, 2015

Vegetables at the market

My friend and colleague, Greg Ashby, who is a Health Coach on our team, has written an informative listing of foods that help in combating cancer in the body.

My experience in working with cancer has shown me that incorporating these types of foods and herbs, into your daily diet, can play a powerful role in supporting the body’s efforts to heal and thrive.  In fact, this entire company was founded on the premise:

“Food is Medicine”

We work tirelessly to share our philosophy of food’s ability to help in healing the body from all disease.

I hope you enjoy this article!

15 Foods to Cancer-Proof Your Body

While there are many healing foods available to us, here are 15 of the top herbs, fruits, vegetables and nuts to benefit you and your family by protecting you from chronic inflammation and possibly even disease.

1. Sea Vegetables, such as Arama, Kombu, Hijiki, Nori and Wakame (they sound fancy, but most can be found in the international food section of your local health foods market).

Chronic inflammation and oxidative stress are risk factors for the genesis of cancer. Sea vegetables contain a variety of anti-inflammatory and antioxidant compounds and this nutrient combination has been shown to deliver some risk-lowering benefits in the case of colon cancer and other cancer types.

2. Turmeric (the active ingredient is curcumin) has anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative benefits on blood vessel tissue lining by suppressing inflammation and/or the effects of oxidative stress (think of oxidative stress as cellular rusting). Studies have shown that curcumin can reduce the formation of blood vessels in tumors called angiogenesis. Turmeric, especially curcumin, helps to prevent changes on a molecular level. When cooking with turmeric, use coconut oil and black pepper to enhance the uptake and benefits of curcumin.

Curcumin has been shown to have significant antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory activity. New research shows that it can both shrink cancer tumors and inhibit blood supply growth to tumors. It is a powerful antioxidant with liver protective benefits.

3. Resveratrol is a potent antioxidant found in red grape skins, pomegranate, raw cacao, peanuts, raspberries and mulberries, which are known to have numerous beneficial health effects. Resveratrol is a compound that contributes to the antioxidant potential of red grapes, and has antioxidant and antimutagenic (anti-cancer) properties.

4. Green Tea benefits come through water-soluble polyphenols (called  EGCG , or catechins) extracted from the leaves. Evidence shows that almost every organ system is benefited by these polyphenols.

Green tea offers cardioprotective, neuroprotective, anti-obesity, anti-carcinogenic, anti-diabetic, anti-atherogenic, liver protective and blood vessel health benefits.

Research has shown beneficial effects are seen in doses of 3 to 5 cups of strong green tea as well as from 500 to 1000 mg of EGCG extract in supplement form taken daily.

5. Wasabi has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties as well as aid in detoxification and induction of death (apoptosis) of cancer cells.

6. Kimchi has been shown to have anticarcinogenic properties, as well as enhancing immune function.

7. Cruciferous Vegetables include broccoli, kale, cabbage and cauliflower.  These vegetables contain cancer-fighting components such as sulforaphane. One of the main targets of sulforaphane is  cancer stem cells, where it’s been shown to slow the growth of tumors.

8. Most all berries have a power-punch phytonutrient called anthocyanins, which research shows actually slows down the growth of precancerous cells.

9. Tomatoes contain power! The power lies in a carotenoid called lycopene, which has been shown to stop endometrial cancer cell growth as well as potentially other cancers. The trick is to use fresh, cooked tomatoes. The heating increases the body’s uptake of lycopene.

10. Walnuts contain phytosterols that block estrogen receptor cells in breast tissues, slowing growth.

11. Garlic may lower the risk of colon cancer by blocking a carcinogen called nitrosamines, a chemical compound that has been shown to  increase the risk colon cancer.

12. Beans may lower colon cancer risk by raising butyrate, a fatty acid, which has a protective effect against the growth of cancer.

13. Astragalus is a Chinese herb and an immune system booster known to stimulate the body’s natural production of interferon. It also helps the immune system identify rogue cells. Studies show that work with this herb in both cancer and AIDS cases is encouraging. The MD Anderson Cancer Centre in Texas conducted research showing that taking astragalus when having radiotherapy doubled survival times.

14. Cat’s Claw is an adaptogen and powerful immune-stimulant, cat’s claw enhances the white cells clean up process (phagocytosis). It is an excellent companion to astragalus, curcumin and echinacea. Research indicates that it can reduce tumor size particularly with skin cancers. It also helps reduce the side-effects of chemo and radiotherapy.

15. Medicinal Mushrooms have been known for centuries to contain cancer and disease preventing properties. Their particular area of focus is the immune system. They are anti-inflammatory, non-toxic and great for daily use.
