Alpha Lipoic Acid, Mitochondria, Cell Metabolism, Poly-MVA | Al Sanchez & Ryan Sternagel
Show notes at https://thesternmethod.com/al-sanchez Al Sanchez is the current president of AMARC Enterprises who are the worldwide distributors of Lipoic Acid Mineral Complexes, sold in supplement form as Poly-MVA. After losing his mother, sister and grandmother to colon cancer, Al joined his father in the quest to help those stricken with cancer and other health challenges find a better quality of life. Like so many others, Al is strong in his belief that we can vastly improve the health of the world with educated choices, improved diet and lifestyle and natural nutritional support products like Poly-MVA. ***Resources Mentioned*** Poly-MVA Website (use code “STERN” for $25 off your first bottle) *** In This Episode: This is only the second product-focused podcast in the Anti-Cancer Revolution Series which says a lot about how highly Ryan rates Poly-MVA, a unique Lipoic Acid Mineral Complex that is designed to provide energy for compromised body systems. In this episode Ryan and Al put the spotlight on mitochondria, the critical role they play in helping the body heal itself, and why it’s so important that we support them. They take a deep dive into cell metabolism, oxygenation and inflammation and uncover how, in the right environment, these factors can turn a healthy cell into a cancer cell. So tune in and discover for yourself what it is about Poly-MVA that makes it so well regarded by Ryan and many naturopathic doctors. You represent a product, you're not a doctor CEO of Armac enterprises We have seen each other at numerous conferences. If I recall one of them you were giving yourself IV PolyMVA... I practice what I preach! I live an anti-cancer life. It's easier to prevent than to treat or cure Mother passed away from cancer at 36, sister at 40 – it's in my epigenetics What got your Dad into making this product? His mother died in 1972. She went the conventional treatment route. Al’s father looked at different options but very short window, didn't have 'time' to implement alternative treatments Father moved to San Diago and met people in the integrative world Al’s sister Tina passed away and this was the driver for Al to begin working with his father and Poly-MVA When I've heard you speak you focus on not just your product, but on helping people really understand what's going on Driven by desire to help and empower people How metabolism and mitochondria play a role Used to a system where you do as a the Doctor says With cancer your options are chemo, surgery or radiation. If that doesn't work, you die Common sense tells you there has to be more than that Al's goal is to be a 'bridge builder' between conventional and naturopathic sides of medicine Tell us about the concept of metabolic medicine and how it ties into mitochondria and cancer With the flu you rest, take supplements, the immune system kicks in, body repairs itself, you're okay Cancer is a whole different scenario but the approach is the same – fatigue, body is trying to fight it By not supporting mitocondria we're not helping the body heal itself Is the concept about giving the immune system more energy to do its job? Yes, in its simplest terms Rest is how our body restores itself Metabolic protocols target the metabolism. Metabolism needs to be at its highest level so the immune system, liver, kidneys etc can draw down on it for energy What specifically are we talking about with cellular metabolism and mitochondria? Mitochondria are the powerhouses of our cells. They provide the energy for them to function properly – repair, heal etc Trillions of mitochondria are required in our bodies just to keep us going Mitochondria have their own DNA When you have cancer your mitochondria become dysfunctional and they start utilizing sugar differently to healthy cells It’s more complex than simply avoiding sugar 1/3 of calories go to the brain, 1/3 to processing/digesting, 1/3 is left for the rest of the body Diet is critical for cancer patients in terms of how their body is able to fight cancer Eat a low carb, high fibre, balanced amount of protein The more natural the better What's your take on cancer being a metabolic disease vs epigenetics? It's both, there's a synergy Epigentics and environment play a role, your genes play a role What's the difference between anaerobic and aerobic respiration in terms of cancer cells using oxygen or not? Cancer cells need a little oxygen but not in the same way normal cells do Oxygenation is is the key differentiator between anaerobic (very low oxygen) and aerobic (oxygen) Why is oxygen harmful to a cancer cell? It creates a better environment in the body for healthy cells Enhances metabolism, improves energy, promotes healing environment Dr Paul Anderson Naturopathic Oncologist says "I don't care about your cancer cells as much as your healthy cells"... Small tumor versus the whole body Ensure body is as healthy as it can be then use targeted therapies to go after the tumor Support immune system, oxygenate the body, support metabolism Where does inflammation fall in all this? Inflammation is irritation of the body Prolonged irritation to any tissue means it can't function or heal Overtime you get an abnormal cell Cancer was once defined as "the wound that doesn't heal" due to lactic acid and low oxygenation The body also uses inflammation as a trigger to heal Problem is with continually high inflammatory markers Turmeric and other antioxidants, IVs, hydration, oxygenation all help reduce inflammation Isn't treating inflammation just like suppressing a symptom? Shouldn't we be going after the cause of the inflammation? Often hard to determine the cause of the inflamation Epigenetics mean diet and lifestyle looks different from one person to another There's enough research out there to know what we need to avoid e.g. alcohol, inflammatory foods Gut health critical for immune system and extracting nutrients out of food effectively What turns a regular cell into a cancer cell? How does it form? What happens in the presence of inflammation, bad metabolic function, low oxygen etc? Process is called acogensis - the birth of a cancer cell In utero two cells come together to create a single cell - each bringing different information This cell replicated many many times similarly to a cancer cell At some point in the process this replication stops and cells get the directions to become the cells they're meant to be Difference is these cells replicate under good healthy metabolism with controls Cancer cells are missing the healthy metabolism and controls and gets stuck in the replication cycle Wherever this cancer starts e.g. liver, skin etc is the 'type' of cancer diagnosed Everyone has cancer cells in their body. They also should have the repair and anti-cancer mechanisms to deal with them On the one hand it's simple on the other hand it's not... The difficulty with cancer is that it's our own cells By the time cancer gets to stage 3 or 4 it's established and has brought down the immune system Then it's chemo, radiation or surgery which often doesn't work Where does Lipoic Acid Mineral Complex fall in with all this? Poly-MVA Founder Dr. Merrill Garnett was exploring Otto Warburg’s theory Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) and Thiamine are cofactors of mitochondria energy production in the KREB Cycle This cycle is where energy gets created, oxygenation takes place, sugar gets broken down and ATP gets produced It's about producing energy but also transporting and utilizing that energy to do what needs to get done Combining ALA and Thiamine creates a mechanism to support this pathway So Poly-MVA supports energy production and transportation in a healthy cell while simultaneously impeding it in a cancer cell? Not necessarily impeding a cancer cell Apoptosis is cell death. A cancer cell has lost the programming to invoke apoptosis However a cancer cell could receive a signal for apoptosis If you start shuttling electrons or creating energy inside the mitochondria of a dysfunctional cellI it is possible to shut it down or restore proper metabolic function ALA and Thiamine are cofactors in this approach, as well as oxygenation of the tissue One of the main selling points of red light therapy is that it supports mitocondria. So people say a cancer patient doesn't want to stimulate mitochondria as you stimulate the cancer cell mitochondria? Light therapies in general are photodynamic therapies In its simplest form - plants need sunlight to grow Cancer cells are undergoing glycolysis. They are no longer functioning metabolically as a normal cell If you're aerobic, using oxygen, red light will stimulate Cancer cells are survivors and adaptable How does high intensity interval training help mitochondria? Are you getting the same benefits as a shot of Poly-MVA? Exercising provides mitochondria, cells, tissues etc with everything they need to be efficient Wouldn't recommend this to cancer patient as immune system is so low Light exercise is beneficial. The more you engage the mitochondria the more you engage your metabolism There are different state of metabolism when healthy Metabolism provides energy Bodies become less efficient when we age. Exercise improves efficiency Poly-MVA also helps with the side effects of conventional treatment. Is that correct? Right. It helps your metabolism and keep your mitochondria healthy In Poly-MVA the ALA is bound together with the thiamine to create the redox molecule Up regulates and protects the cell and supports mitocondria Many naturopathic oncologists Ryan has spoken to recommend Poly-MVA to their cancer patients What's the difference between oral consumption and IV in terms of benefits? IV goes straight into the bloodstream. bypassing digestive system so tissues get higher concentration IV helps advanced patients who need a lot of initial support What are the dosing guidelines for IV Poly-MVA Dosage is dependant on the physician's protocol and what is needed Dr Paul Anderson provides online physician training How do you get hold of Poly-MVA?

Anti-Cancer Therapies: Gut Healing, Hyperthermia, Ozone & Oxygen Therapy | Marcus Freudenmann & Ryan Sternagel
full show notes at https://thesternmethod.com/marcus-freudenmann/ Producer of the documentary “Cancer is Curable Now” and director of the Truly Heal Academy, Marcus Freudenmann has dedicated his life to educating practitioners and the public on ‘cause finding’ and alternative cancer therapies. Through his academy and training programs Marcus teaches how to treat cancer patients without treating cancer. Marcus’ dream is to build a bridge between holistic and conventional medicine, based on trust, compassion, accountability, comprehensive knowledge and understanding. ***Resources Mentioned*** Marcus’ website Marcus’ free training program GreenMedInfo Mercola Duckduckgo.com Hyperthermia Dome hyperthermiaacademy.com In This Episode: Ryan was stoked to get Marcus Freudenmann on the show as unbeknownst to Marcus, his work holds a special place in Teddy and Ryan’s journey. Just days after receiving Ryder’s diagnosis they watched the documentary “Cancer is Curable Now” as they scrambled to learn all they could about cancer and every alternative treatment available. In this episode Marcus tells of his journey travelling the world with his family to uncover the ‘cure’ for cancer. He thought he had reached a dead end until one particular doctor completely changed his thinking. Marcus realised it wasn’t the ‘cure’ he needed to find, but rather the cause. This became Marcus’ life’s mission and he’s since developed a framework for identifying and treating the patient, not the cancer. Marcus explains that it’s about what you remove, not what you add that kick starts the healing process. Ryan and Marcus also take a deeper dive into some of the treatments that Marcus recommends including hyperthermia and ozone therapies. Thank you for making your documentary and attempting to put all the pieces together to show people a better way... Marcus was an architect until a friend was diagnosed with cancer The conventional process shocked and frightened Marcus. It became the catalyst that changed the direction of his life He embarked on a global tour to film a documentary about alternative treatments to cancer, interviewing hundreds of experts When another friend was diagnosed with cancer, Marcus recommended the best alternative treatments available. Nothing worked He consulted leading alternative doctors asking why there was so much hype around treatments that didn't work Came down to hope and patients wanting to believe in a cure Marcus felt like giving up He conducted his final interview for the documentary with Dr Rau from Paracelsus Clinic in Switzerland Dr Rau told him he was asking the wrong questions First ask “Why does the patient have the disease?” and second “Why does his body not deal with the disease?” This changed the focus of Marcus’ work from the cure to the cause It’s not about what we give the patient, but what we remove – not what we start, but what we stop doing I'd love to hear more about your process of working with folks Visited 114 clinics, spoke to 200 doctors, scientists, researchers Some focus on mental/emotional factors, some on hormones, others on gut repair and diet Problem most face is there is such a broad spectrum of causes of cancer Children with cancer inherit their parents toxicity, DNA and lifestyle In India children developed tumors from inherited toxicity from chemicals their parents working in the fabric industry were exposed to How do you pick through what's going on with people? Take people on a journey to tick off potential causes / factors Treat the patient not the disease Once on the right track the whole body begins to heal Marcus’ friend began to heal through a treatment protocol that focused on removing things, not adding more: First removed metal teeth fillings. Tumor progression halted Next repaired detox pathways through anti-inflammatory diet Then ozone and hyperthermia Daily saunas and mud baths pull out toxins through skin Marcus’ focus is on finding underlying problems. A list of over 200 questions What was the trigger for your own gut issues? Heavy metals in gut lining Mercury fillings removed incorrectly Experienced severe brain fog Body was so toxic needed four years of detoxification and chelation With ozone therapy he started to fully recover It's about supporting our immune systems, emotions and how we live our lives Research by Dr Mutter– bacteria can become toxic in a toxic environment E.g. mercury combined with bacteria from root canal creates a new chemical that can destroy brain cells Infection in combination with heavy metals increases toxicity and effects on the body What areas do you cover in your questioning? Start with gut health to improve the immune system Look at infections 65 different viruses, bacteria and fungus directly linked to cancers Overgrowth can trigger disease and depression Address deficiencies in vitamins and minerals Remove toxins Balance hormones Systemic health. Test to determine what is out of balance Marcus offers two training programs– one for professionals and a free course for individuals (patients or caregivers) Changes to Google Search mean alternative health research is harder to find We got hit by the Google thing too. It's an invitation to rediscover your trusted sources instead of Google being your 'trusted source' GreenMedInfoand Mercolawere huge resources and now they’re harder to find Recommends using duckduckgo.comas a Search Engine What do you do once you've identified potential causes? Marcus’ framework provides direction and next steps Free training (7 videos) Multiple solutions and methodologies. Often more than one is needed to get results Hyperthermia Can be a driver of big transformation Heat shock proteins produced when fever is induced Normal cells thrive in heat, cancer cells do not Induce fever for 1-2 hours and bone marrow produces white blood cells These are flushed into blood system to hunt out cancer cells What is the difference between a standard infrared sauna and what you might find in a clinic? Sauna is external heat to make you sweat – good for pulling out toxins through the skin Hypothermia is the process of inducing artificial fever. Your core temperature is raised Expensive treatment to do via a clinic. Marcus developed an at-home product called the Hyperthermia Dome What’s the difference between the dome and a sauna? The Dome produces long wave far infrared heat that penetrates deeper and heats up blood vessels quicker Raises core temperature to 101.3-101.8F within 30-40 minutes Once you reach this temperature you need to stay there for 1-2 hours for it to be effective Traditional saunas don’t get core temperature high enough or quick enough More information at hyperthermiaacademy.com What treatments have you found that give the most bang for buck? Treatments must satisfy the following criteria: Stand the test of time Supported by lots of research Used in every reputable alternative clinic across the world Main treatments Marcus recommends: Hyperthermia, ozone, PEMF for detox, excessive sport for detox Treatments alone have limited results unless complemented with other treatments, supplements, systemic health etc Money is a big factor for cancer patients! Treatments are very expensive. Ryan and Teddy are developing a course for people going through cancer, and one of the areas the course focuses on is how to raise money to fund treatments. The final word from Marcus Disease is a sign we are heading in the wrong direction. Use these signals as a motivator to live a better life Building community is important. Share healing tools and devices with your friends, family and neighbours to spread the financial burden Follow Marcus https://trulyheal.com/ If you have a question or comment about this episode let us know below!!

Homeopathy & Homeopathic Medicine for Cancer | Dr Carol Lourie & Ryan Sternagel
Full show notes @ https://thesternmethod.com/carol-lourie Dr. Carol Lourie is a Naturopath, Licensed Acupuncturist, Homeopath and Functional Medicine Expert who has been working in the field of integrative and natural health care for over 30 years. Carol takes a whole-person approach to healing using integrative tools that leverage the innate healing abilities of body, mind, and spirit. ***Resources Mentioned*** Everybody's Guide to Homeopathic Medicines by Dana Ullman The Path of Breast Cancer Integrative Therapeutics Laxative Formula Smooth Move Tea Oxypowder by Global Healing Center Total Gut Protocol from Microbiome Labs MegaMucosa Natura Health Products – Digest Mend Quercetin Ascorbate, Designs for Health D-Ribose, Designs for Health *** In This Episode: I’ve been trying to get Dr. Carol Lourie on the show for a while now but for whatever reason, the stars didn’t align. Well I can tell you, it was worth the wait! I brought Carol on to talk about homeopathy and cancer but we ended up talking about so much other good stuff that’s sure to help you on your own healing journey. We talk about various fasting protocols to help improve the effectiveness of chemo AND protect your healthy cells AND reduce nausea! We look at homeopathic remedies to reduce the side effects of chemo and radiation, and Carol shares some of the supplement brands she uses in her clinical practice. Plus you’ll get some great recipes for healing smoothies and Bieler’s broth. It’s action-packed! Is there a reason you’ve honed in on cancer? Carol has lost family members to cancer She looked after a friend going through cancer treatment. Over18 months every appointment Saw first hand what her friend went through and where she could help with her naturopathic skills Began studying the enormous complex topic of cancer Studied with Donnie Yance of the Mederi Foundation Specialized in breast cancer What conferences were you at recently? Society of Integrative Oncology – Carol presented on intermittent fasting in clinic practice Attended Advanced Applications in Medical Practice put on by Dr Paul Anderson Dr Weber from Germany talked about using laser therapy to treat cancer Uses very thin needles in the skin to apply the laser similar to acupuncture You are a naturopathic doctor who focuses on cancer but you also have a homeopathy specialty… Samuel Hahnemann, a German physician, discovered homeopathy in late 1800’s. Started experimenting with sulfur, phosphorus etc which he diluted until just the energy of the compound remained This process makes homeopathy very safe. It won’t interfere with other treatments Oncologists can be resistant to anything they perceive may interfere with chemotherapy Carol aims for a positive relationship with her patients’ conventional oncologists Advises her patients to follow this protocol around chemo infusions: 2 days before infusion stop supplements and start intermittent fasting One day after infusion start intermittent fasting 2 days after, no supplements – just bone broth and Bieler’s broth If you don’t get along with your oncologist, find a new one What is Bieler’s broth? In the 70’s Carol’s friend underwent a huge amount of radiation therapy for cancer before being told nothing more could be done for her Found a chiropractor in New York who used Iridology detoxifying diet Introduced Carol to blended salads and Bieler’s broth Bieler’s broth recipe: Green beans, zucchini, white cabbage, parsley celery, leaks, onions Cook up and blend. No salt or pepper Basic environment in the body as opposed to acidic. Cancer and disease love acidic environment Less inflammation Blended salad recipe: Equal amounts of tomato, red pepper, celery, cucumber and lettuce Blend with extra virgin olive oil and organic lemon juice Lots of phytonutrients. Easy to digest Other therapies at the clinic included: 10 day water fasting Epsom salt enemas (tbsp. Epsom salt, dissolved in boiling water and add to enema bag) Philosophy was that Epsom salts pull toxins from the lymph Clinic philosophy was to take the patient back to the ‘cellular time’ before they contracted the disease Refeed properly after a water fast, otherwise benefits are lost Purpose is to reduce sugar component in body What is the Warburg effect? Warburg was a scientist in Germany in 1924 He discovered that cancer most often choses sugar for energy Carol works with her patients to reduce their glycemic index and starve their cancer cells of glucose Intermittent fasting is very important when preparing for chemotherapy Helps chemo become more effective. When cancer cells are starved they see the chemo and the accompanying steroids as sugar and absorb more of these. This helps protect healthy cells What is your definition of intermittent fasting? Lots of different terms: Caloric restriction – restrict your calories by 40-50% Dr. Mosley’s 5:2 diet – eating for 5 days, fasting for 2 Dr. Valter Longo recommends reducing calories and reducing what you eat Carol recommends 600-800 calories per day, two days before chemo Bone broth, veggie juice and Bieler’s broth When you have chemo you want empty intestines. Uses laxative product such as Integrative Therapeutics Laxative Formula or Smooth Move Tea Goal is almost diarrhea. Don’t want to auto intoxicate – if you have fecal material in your body and you go for chemo the toxins remain in your body longer than necessary Ryan mentions the Fasting Mimicking Diet Ryan recommends Oxypowder by Global Healing Center Do you practice classical or clinical homeopathy or something else? Many different approaches. Carol takes the approach most relevant to the person Looks at the whole person and how that person’s ‘dis-ease’ is affecting them. Their unique symptoms No one thing is going to help cancer. It is a very serious metabolic disease. Needs a lot of different protocols put together to address metabolic imbalance e.g. nutrition, mindset, targeted supplementation, iv therapy, lifestyle etc How do you use homeopathy to mitigate radiation side effects Homeopathic Carcinosin is a breast cancer remedy Can buy from homeopathic pharmacy or practitioner Carol does remote consultations. Practitioner list on stermmethod.com Acute homeopathy good for mitigating the symptoms of conventional treatment It’s the symptoms that are important in homeopathy, not the illness To support patients going through radiation: Avoid anti-oxidants as radiation created oxidative stress Drink miso soup – 2 cups before 2 cups after Fast before Empty your intestines prior Afterwards drink green smoothie or juice Acupuncture Take prebiotics and probiotics. Carol recommends Total Gut Protocol from Microbiome Labs This protocol includes MegaMucosa prebiotic powder Protect your gut when having chemotherapy too One of the best things you can do to keep your counts up Carol’s patients have better blood work Remedy for radiation burns is Cantharis – 60 or 30c Only take when symptoms are present. Listen to your body and follow the symptoms. If symptoms change may need Rhus tox (better with heat) or Apis mellifica (better with ice cold), Belladonna (skin throbbing – whole being is agitated) Available from Whole Foods Dana Olman’s book on acute homeopathic remedies Banerji Protocol can be used for protection against conventional treatment but it’s very individual so you need to see a practitioner Detox combination remedies available from BioResource but Carol doesn’t use combinations in her practice Can homeopathy reduce side effects of chemotherapy? Yes. Must go into chemotherapy well prepared by doing all that is recommended above Mint or ginger tea to decrease nausea Ipecac – for nausea Phosphorus – vomiting on food ingestion Bryonia – nauseous if move Pulsatilla – need fresh air, crying a lot Neuropathy – Alpha-lipoic acid, vitamin B6, IV vitamin C to support through radiation Hypericum – tea and homeopathic tincture for nerve pain Borax - mouth sores, healthier intestines, better response to chemo Carol recommends Natura Health Products – Digest Mend (powder) Healing smoothie recipe 1-2 scoops of protein powder. Whey or pea isolate protein powder, keto or collagen powder – depending on your diet Whey is very anti-inflammatory with lots of immunoglobulins. Recommends Natura, Designs for Health and Xymogen Pea isolate – Xymogen, Metagenics, Designs for Health – monk fruit preferred over stevia Apex and Biotics also good brands Water or organic coconut water or unsweetened nut milk 2 tsp Quercetin Ascorbate, Designs for Health 2 tsp D-Ribose, Designs for Health (Xymogen and Biotics also) ½ avocado 1tspn dark flaxseed 1 tbsp chia seeds ½ cup berries Ice (optional) If you need to gain weight, add egg yolk, nut butter, molasses or tahini Could also add green powder or leaves (not spinach) Put everything into a blender and blend Any last thoughts? Intense spiritual / emotional component to this disease – really important to address this how ever you chose Without addressing this it’s hard to fully recover Follow Dr. Carol Lourie Online programme called The Path of Breast Cancer email@example.com If you have a question or comment about this episode let us know below!!

Reversing Stage 4 Melanoma, Skin Cancer, Macrobiotic Diet | James Templeton & Ryan Sternagel
Full show notes @ https://thesternmethod.com/james-templeton James Templeton, a 5th generation Texan and the last in a line of true blue cowboys credits his ancestors for his fighting spirit – something he had to call on in a battle for his life against Stage 4 Melanoma. After receiving a terminal diagnosis in his early 30’s he has now been cancer free for over 30 years thanks to alternative medicine, diet and other healing modalities. James went on to found Uni Key Health Systems and the Templeton Wellness Foundation as a way of giving back and helping others achieve health and wellness. His book, I Used to Have Cancer chronicles his inspiring journey back to health. ***Resources Mentioned*** IUsedToHaveCancer.com (free guides available) James’ Foundation Templetonlist.com - Restaurant Guide Confessions of a Kamikaze Cowboy by Dirk Benedict Cancer and Vitamin C by Linus Pauling Unikey Health Systems High Dose Oral Vitamin C Supplement *** In This Episode: Conventional medicine was all James Templeton knew before cancer came knocking on his door. In this very personal episode James shares his journey with me. How he went from the depths of despair to hope and then health, thanks to the love and support of others and his alternative approach to healing. In a time before Dr Google and Facebook Groups, James found the courage to forge his own healing path. We touch on three healing modalities James employed – a macrobiotic diet, high dose vitamin C and parasite cleansing; as well as the importance of positivity and mindset. So settle in and prepare to be inspired by James’ amazing story. Where you naturally or holistically inclined before diagnosis Not at all. No health problems If sick went to conventional doctor What were the signs you were sick Life was good, young family, successful businesses, fit and healthy Experienced a lot of death in his family. Kept fit to avoid heart disease Went for check up for heart and doctor told him to get a mole on his back checked Saw dermatologist who suspected melanoma Biopsy results confirmed Stage 4 melanoma. He was 32 years old Started regular check ups with Oncologist Became depressed and anxious. Marriage broke up Found lump in groin. Cancer had spread to lymphatic system Oncologist recommended 80 treatments of experimental chemotherapy that involved typhoid serum to raise his temperature before administering IV chemo All lymph nodes removed from leg Given 20% chance of surviving 3-5 years Felt hopeless. A Minister from his Church gave him a pep talk that changed his mindset Prayers answered through a series of visits by friends and family Given books about people healing themselves through diet and lifestyle Confessions of a Kamikaze Cowboy by Dirk Benedict Cancer and Vitamin C by Linus Pauling Macrobiotic diet Started chemotherapy and a macrobiotic diet. Bad experience with chemo Decided to get out of the conventional system before it killed him Over 33 years later he’s still here and healthier than ever Discovered a new purpose in his life - to help people What is the macrobiotic diet? Big in 70’s and 80’s Based on: 50% organic wholegrains (brown rice, barley, millet etc) 25%+ vegetables (lots of cruciferous vegetables plus leeks, onions, garlic) 10% beans and legumes (aduki, lentils, chickpeas) 10% soup (unpasteurized miso soup) 5% seaweed (wakame, aramee, dulse, kombu) White fish soup once a week Good for gut flora, no sugar Chew each mouthful of food 50 times Also incorporated visualization Keep looking for new anti-cancer things to add to diet and lifestyle Not on a strict macrobiotic diet anymore - be smart about what your body needs Followed the diet for 6 years Walks now instead of running. Move your body but don’t wear it out. Breathe Believes his cancer was a result of stress, exposure to chemicals and issue with his immune system You did a big parasite cleansing… After several years living a macrobiotic lifestyle and supplementing high dose oral vitamin C, went to seminar on intestinal parasites Was taking over 20,000ml Vitamin C per day Lecturer told him he had a parasitic ‘look’ and recommended he get checked out Saw an expert doctor in New York. Diagnosed with several different parasites Tissue swab sample from rectum The doctor told James he had never seen a cancer or AIDS patient who didn’t have some sort of parasitic infection Took herbal remedy for three months Parasites are immunosuppressive What were the herbs you used? Black walnut, wormwood, cloves Unikey Health Systems, Para-key and Verma-plus Digestive tract is 80% of your immune system Keep yeast and fungus out of your body and build good intestinal flora Parasites thrive on sugar Why not go into this thinking you can beat it Believing is everything, the mind is so powerful Get away from anyone negative Follow James IUsedToHaveCancer.com templetonwellness.com If you have a question or comment about this episode let us know below!!

Can Stress Cause Cancer? | Dr Lise Alschuler & Ryan Sternagel
full show notes @ https://thesternmethod.com/lise-alschuler Lise Alschuler is a naturopathic doctor with board certification in naturopathic oncology. She is the co-author of a book I highly recommend called The Definitive Guide to Cancer. She co-created iTHRIVE, a cancer survivorship programme and co-hosts a radio show, Five To Thrive Live! on the Cancer Support Network. In 2008, Dr. Lise was diagnosed with breast cancer. She integrated natural supplements, diet, exercise and other lifestyle changes throughout her treatment and is 10 years cancer free! She now incorporates the learnings of her own, firsthand experience into her work to help others facing the challenges of this disease. ***Resources Mentioned*** Dr Lise’s Website Dr Lise’s Book - The Definitive Guide to Cancer Five to Thrive Live – radio show / podcast iTHRIVE: Free survivorship programme ListenAndCare.com Cortisol Manager Suntheanine Nature's Way lavender product *** In This Episode: The topic of this podcast is one that’s particularly close to home for Teddy and I. When Teddy was pregnant with Ryder, she experienced immense amounts of stress from a negative work environment. We often wonder about the impact this stress had on our son and if it was responsible, at least in part, for his cancer. So it’s a topic I was really excited to explore, and there’s no one better to do this with than Dr. Lise Alschuler. In this episode Dr. Lise explains the potential negative effects that stress can have on the body, including cancer progression and relapse, and what we can do to mitigate stress and anxiety in our lives. What led you to becoming a naturopathic doctor specializing in cancer? Took an undergrad class at medical school. Many people diagnosed with cancer shared their journey Each person was unique, authentic, honest, courageous Wanted to treat these kinds of people, so decided to get into oncology Passion was in integrative medicine. Pulled out of medical school to study naturopathic medicine Offered position at cancer hospital and discovered integrative oncology Fascinated with the transformative element that a cancer diagnosis invokes in people Dr. Lise’s father was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Lived past his prognosis using integrative oncology Two years later Dr. Lise was diagnosed with breast cancer and experienced integrative oncology firsthand She felt healthy throughout conventional treatment despite side effects Can you talk to the importance of mindset and effective stress mitigation strategies? We often try to create linear relationship between cause and effect Cancer is multifactorial – can't appoint blame to any one thing Take control of what we can. Modify our relationship to stress Latest research shows correlation between high levels of stress and cancer progression or recurrence, rather than initial diagnosis Cancer rates increase amongst individuals who have experienced significant stressors in their lives e.g. death of loved one or marriage break up Cancer cells have been growing for 10-20 years before they get large enough to be identified as a tumor. Stress can accelerate what's already present Stress is just one factor behind tumor acceleration All changeable through stress modification What are you finding on the relationship between stress and prognosis? Studies look at impact of the biomarkers of stress on cancer patient outcomes Study on advanced breast cancer patients Divided study participants by their circadian rhythms – healthy circadian patterns indicative of a healthy stress response Study showed women with flat circadian rhythms had chronic stress and died sooner – highly statistically significant. Had less immune function Cortisol suppresses our natural killer cells and other essential bodily functions Similar results seen on studies of people with colon and lung cancer The importance of social networks Feeling socially isolated has a negative effect on prognosis Not the quantity but the quality of connections with others How do we know if it’s mental or external stressors behind the disruption of circadian rhythm as opposed to environmental influences e.g exposure to too much blue light? Inflammatory cytokines are elevated throughout the body when there is a constant stress response When stress mitigation strategies are implemented a positive change seen in circadian rhythms and inflammatory cytokines reduced “Psychological wellbeing is like a firehose on inflammatory cytokines” Note for parents of young children Clear link between early childhood stress and adult susceptibility to cancer An elevated stress response system becomes hardwired Start stress modification techniques early e.g. meditation through guided imagery, creative play, good rest How do you counsel people to get their mental well being under control? Step back and look at the bigger picture – where is identifiable stress coming from? What you change to bring more of yourself into the world in a positive way? Other factors: Sleep – enough, quality, hygiene, light exposure in the morning Melatonin controls circadian rhythms and sleep. Often deficient in people with chronic disease Aren’t there negative effects of supplementing something your body produces naturally? Melatonin has a very short halflife. We don’t habituate to it Melatonin has anti-cancer properties and is a potent antioxidant. Restores health of the pineal gland, reenabling melatonin production In theory the body could develop resistance to melatonin. Long term users should take breaks and adjust dosage Long-term use of any supplementation poses risks in terms of resistance With kids, be conservative with anything in the hormone category Back to stress mitigation strategies Avoid sleep medication if you have cancer. Try a natural first Regular, daily, vigorous exercise at the edge of your fitness Exercise creates healthier circadian rhythms, fewer inflammatory cytokines, healthier immune systems, blood sugar control What would say to someone going through conventional treatment where the last thing they feel like doing is exercise? Still need to exercise but drop the intensity General rule of thumb: recovery time after exercise should be no more than half the exercise time when on treatment. If longer to recover then over doing it If lost muscle mass tai chi, yoga, walking are better options Rebounding What’s next after exercise? Diet. Correlation between Mediterranean or anti inflammatory diet and lower stress hormones and inflammatory cytokines Plant-led diet with no process foods – more resilience to stress Refined sugar is a stressor Majority of diet should be plant-based Too much meat is carcinogenic Plants and herbal medicine Two for one – manage stress and anti-cancer potential Diverse gut microbiome – prebiotics, high fibre fermets Lower anxiety and better stress response, immune function and response to conventional treatment Adaptogens – plants that can reinstate circadian rhythm e.g. American Ginseng Ashwagandha, Holy Basil Brands Dr Lise recommends: Gaia Herbs, Vital Nutrients (Verified Quality is their consumer brand), Pure Encapsulations, Integrative Therapeutics (product called Cortisol Manager) and Solaray To reduce anxiety, Dr Lise recommends L-theanine (in particular, products containing Suntheanine) and lavender extract. Silexan is a lavender oil formula that is used in supplements. Dr Lise recommends a Nature's Way product. Mindfulness and meditation Mindfulness starts with breathing. Exercises like the 4, 7, 8 breath Great meditation apps. 10 minute guided meditations Tai chi, yoga or qigong – moving meditation Explore different types of meditation Headspace and Calm apps are mindful meditation There are other types e.g transcendental meditation and loving-kindness meditation Follow Dr Lise https://www.drlise.net/ If you have a question or comment about this episode let us know below!!

Anti-Cancer Benefits of Meditation, Mindfulness and Manifesting | Emily Fletcher & Ryan Sternagel
full show notes @ https://thesternmethod.com/emily-fletcher Emily Fletcher is a leading expert in meditation and mindfulness. She is the founder of Ziva Meditation, home of the Ziva Technique, and author of Stress Less, Accomplish More. Ten years ago Emily Fletcher was a stressed out Broadway performer. She started going gray at 27, was sick often and suffered from insomnia. In 2008, Emily was introduced to a powerful meditation practice that had a profound effect on her both physically and professionally. She felt inspired to share this secret with others. So she left Broadway for India to undertake three years of intense study and training. When she arrived back in the US she founded Ziva Mediation and has been helping thousands of people from all over the world improve their health and their lives ever since. ***Resources Mentioned*** Emily's Website ZivaONLINE (course) Emily's Book - Stress Less, Accomplish More Chi Machine *** In This Episode: I’m super excited to introduce you to Emily Fletcher! Emily is the person who reinspired me to get back into mediation and to stop making excuses when it came to making time in my day for such an important practice. During the show Emily explains her Ziva Technique which is a powerful combination of mindfulness, meditation and something called manifesting (she’ll explain it all). The benefits of Ziva include decreased stress, deeper sleep, improved immune function and increased performance. No matter what your situation, the value that mediation can bring to our health, healing and wellbeing is enormous – so be sure to make some time to listen to this one. You have a cancer story that’s close to your heart... Dad diagnosed with liver cancer Went to cancer centre in Tampa with positive mindset – we can fix this Centre sent him home to die Emily began researching nutrition to feed his body, not the cancer Got Chi (gold fish) machine from Japan to keep feet moving Proton beam radiation machine Other therapies: apple pectin, Floradix, Flor-Essence Within 48 hours went from coma-like state to walking and talking Quality of life significantly improved at the end. Got to say his goodbyes Where do you stand on free will vs destiny? Not mutually exclusive. Can’t control the hand we’re deal but can influence how we play it One of the pillars of the Ziva Technique is manifesting Getting clear about what you want to create in your life Ziva draws on Ayurveda as a body of wisdom – is that right? This type of mediation is a trifecta of mindfulness, meditation and manifesting Ayurveda is the sister science Understand the laws of nature to help you get to where you want to go Helps you to be your own doctor Getting body into balance Ayurveda and Ziva Mediation promote a healing environment in the body Cancer – acute vs chronic disease. How meditation helps Cancer is an imbalance that needs to be balanced We all have cancer cells but if the immune system working properly it can deal with them If constantly in fight or flight mode your immune system is on the back burner Stress – increases adrenaline and cortisol levels, body becomes more acidic, blood thickens, digestion slows, hormones and adrenals get out of balance, healing mechanisms shut down If you need to heal you must treat stress very seriously Mediation reduces stress and increases dopamine and serotonin There is a huge amount of stress that comes with a cancer diagnosis. What if there is no such thing as a stressful situation but only stressful responses to given situations? Daily mediation helps to fill the tank with tools to deal with stressful situations more calmly With a cancer diagnosis you still have to ‘perform’ while researching treatment options, fundraising and juggling doctors appointments with life etc It’s not bad to get stressed. Problems arise when we stay stressed Meditation helps you to recover Stress comes from speculating – reviewing the past, predicting the future When you’re meditating your body is performing stress relieving activities so you can do other things when you sleep Meditation makes sleep more efficient Insomnia happens when we use our sleep time to destress Meditate once or twice a day for stress relief so when you go to bed you fall asleep faster and your sleep is more restorative Get sick less frequently Intuition increases, ruminating decreases Productivity improves How is the root cause of disease, cellular memory and emotional detox tied together? Mindfulness is the art of bringing awareness into the present moment – good at dealing with stress of the ‘now’ Meditation is about healing stresses of the past – on a cellular and epigenetic level. Allows the body to heal properly – improves brain function, sleep, sex drive, intuition What are your thoughts on using devices like headphones, music or special glasses to get into a meditative state faster? All for cheating if it works It’s important to be self sufficient, not tethered to electronics We need to trust and train our bodies External stimulation is not as powerful as internal stimulation Mantras – mind vehicles not affirmations Can you share some examples and stories from your students? Fertility – lots of Ziva babies! Helped reduce tremors in a student with Parkinson’s disease by increasing dopamine production Meditation doesn’t cure cancer. It helps patients though the challenges and sets the immune system up to do its job if it has the ability to do so Some last words Often hear “I can’t clear my mind. I can’t mediate”. The mind thinks involuntarily. You can’t tell your mind to be quite, it’s a skill that must be learnt Working on ZivaKIDS for 2020 Our bodies know how to heal. We just need to stop eating foods that aren’t food, looking at light that isn’t light, using soil that isn’t soil… Follow Emily zivameditation.com/ ZivaTRIBE If you have a question or comment about this episode let us know below!!

Ayurvedic Herbs and Cancer | Dr Virender Sodhi MD (AYURVED) ND & Ryan Sternagel
Full article @ https://thesternmethod.com/virender-sodhi Dr Virender Sodhi was the first Ayurvedic and Naturopathic physician in the United States. From a young age, Dr. Sodhi knew he wanted to be a physician. This was a kid who would visit the village doctor and pretend he was ill so that he could take the prescribed medicine home, label it and add it to his growing “medicine cabinet”. After moving to the United States, Dr Sodhi completed his ND degree at Bastyr University, Washington in 1988. The following year he founded the Ayurvedic and Naturopathic Clinic that he still practices at today. It wasn’t until many years later, after dealing with cancer in his family, that Dr Sodhi turned his professional focus to oncology. Dr Sodhi completed a fellowship in Integrative Oncology with Dr. Mark Rosenberg in 2012 and a steady stream of cancer patients followed. Today he helps patients from around the globe using traditional Ayurvedic principles and integrative treatment protocols. ***Resources Mentioned*** The Ayurvedic & Naturopathic Medical Clinic The Life of Jesus in India CoCurcumin Ayush Herbs Livit 2 Bacopa monnieri Ashwagandha Boswellia Serreta - Boswelya Plus Amla Neem Gotu Kola - Ayu-Dep by Ayush Herbs *** In This Episode: I’m really excited about this episode! I’ve interviewed a lot of different health professionals about cancer over the years but this is the first time I’ll be exploring Ayurveda. Ayurvedic medicine is the primary care model for hundreds of millions of people in India. Dr Sodhi talks me through what Ayurveda is and what makes it different from other Eastern medicine practices. We talk about some of the medicinal herbs used in Ayurvedic medicine – particularly the ones with anti-cancer properties, and how they can help patients as anti-cancer protocols and as integrative therapies alongside other alternative and/or conventional cancer treatments. Plus we’ll cover off where to find the best quality Ayurvedic herbs. Enjoy! Can you start with telling us what Ayurveda is? Ayurveda is thousands of years old. Deep-seated in Indian culture The ayurvedic philosophy to good health is to live in harmony with and follow the laws of nature Cancer is the prime example of what happens when we stray away from mother nature How did you get into medicine and in particular cancer? Born and raised in small rural village in Himalayas His father was a school principal with a keen interest in medicine Father taught him about plants and herbs and their medicinal properties Began collected herbs and medicines. Even feigned illness to his doctor so he could add what was prescribed to his collection When his father died of lung cancer, Dr Sodhi vowed to work in oncology. Didn’t happen until his sister was diagnosed with breast cancer years later Completed his fellowship in Florida with integrative oncologist Dr Mark Rosenburg Cancer patients started pouring in Why is there such an emphasis on herbs in Eastern medicine? Indian culture is very old and advanced in thinking Historically India was the learning academy for the world The Life of Jesus in India (YouTube video) - did Jesus go to India during the ‘missing years’ before return to Jerusalem? Consider the behaviour of animals - they look, sniff, taste and if they like it they eat it. We need to use our senses in the same way Close connection with mother nature is part of Indian culture Native American culture is rich in herbology Wild food foraging How is Ayurveda different from other practices? Mental, emotional, spiritual, physical - Ayurveda focuses on all these aspects Cancer patients often have mental or emotional issues Cancer is not one disease, group of many diseases Most diseases are a result of lifestyle Our food chain is contaminated, no safety data on chemicals in our environment We need to drive change by not purchasing these products Pesticides killing our gut microbiome Do you provide the mental and emotional support? Assess and provide tools but refers to others for ongoing support Changing thought processes is key to long term health We must create balance every day What Ayervadic herbs would people be familiar with? Turmeric and curcumin - helps with inflammation and changes gene behavior Dr Sodhi’s product - CoCurcumin Boswellia Serreta (Frankincense) - anti-inflammatory. Beneficial for neuroblastoma, bone cancers and sacommas Ashwagandha - adaptogen that helps the body balance itself. Anti-angiogenic effect - restricts blood supply to tumors Natural compounds have DNA and can communicate with the body. Synthetic drugs cannot Natural compounds support the immune system Immunotherapy gaining popularity Neem - antifungal, antibacterial, antiviral. Creates autophagy in cancer cells (cell starves) The immune system has the tools to fight cancer cells if it is working properly How is your turmeric product different Turmeric oils are not very bioavailable unless you add fat Golden milk is a drink with milk and turmeric Coconut milk contains medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) that help keep sugar away from cancer cells and make it more bioavailable CoCurcumin uses MCTs to significantly improve the bioavailability of curcumin. CoQ10 is added to support cardiovascular and inflammatory function. Trikatu, a traditional Ayurvedic combination of piperine from black pepper is also added to enhance turmeric absorption. Metronomic approach to chemotherapy (micro / low dosing) is becoming more popular How do you design an anti-cancer herbal protocol? Ongoing learning process Every disease starts with the mind Looks at the whole picture Food, digestion. Chew your food, eat mindfully, eat nutrient dense not calorie dense food We want quick fixes when it comes to our health, but never the answer Paleo dieters seem to have forgotten the gathering part from our hunter gather past Hunting was exercise Animals farm raised - changes composition of meat and fat Portions too large What are other go-to herbs for cancer? Guduchi (Tinospora cordifolia) Amla - immune booster, lowers cholesterol, good for digestion Ginger - destroys oncogenes, helps digestion Onion and garlic Eat raw to avoid destroying the active properties Bacopa monnieri - brain support Gotu Kola - collagen strengthen Eat local and seasonal Integrative use of Ayurveda with chemo Amla protects the heart Use ashwagandha alongside cyclophosphamide Curcumin reduces side effects of chemotherapy Livit-2 is a preparation of herbs that support the liver In 12 years in oncology Dr Sodhi has not seen issues with combining the majority of herbs with chemotherapy Where do you go to get herbs?

Cannabis for Cancer, Low Dose vs High Dose, THC vs CBD only | Dr Allan Frankel & Ryan Sternagel
Full show notes @ https://thesternmethod.com/allan-frankel Dr. Allan Frankel is one of the world’s leading authorities on dosed cannabis medicine. He started his career as a traditional doctor, but after an extremely serious health issue was reversed when friends introduced Dr Frankel to medical cannabis, he began researching the plant and its healing properties. In 2007 he sold his practice and became a cannabis doctor. Now Dr. Frankel applies his knowledge of all aspects of the cannabis plant and its therapeutic value to the treatment of cancer and other serious medical conditions. ***Resources Mentioned*** Greenbridgemed.com *** In This Episode: Cannabis has been widely shown to improve a cancer patient’s quality of life. In this episode, Dr Frankel gives me the run down on how he provides dosed, predictable cannabis medicine to his patients to help them manage the side effects of conventional treatment. Plus he shares the specific formula he uses to calculate the right dosage. We discuss the anti-cancer properties of cannabis along with Dr Frankel’s own clinical experience of cannabis as an effective cancer treatment. We talk specifically about the benefits of whole plant cannabis vs isolates, and how the cannabinoids tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) can help manage pain, treat nausea and vomiting, and treat the anxiety that goes along with fighting cancer. So if you’re considering adding cannabis to your alternative treatment protocol, this episode is a must-see. What led you to become a cannabis doctor? Was it your intention to work with cancer patients? Got a virus that went to his heart and was given 6 months to live without a heart transplant Went to LA and friends introduced him to cannabis plants which immediately improved his mood and reduced anxiety. Within weeks he was running up the stairs After this experience, started studying cannabis and its medicinal properties. Are you seeing mostly cancer patients? About a third are cancer patients The dosing for anti-cancer is based on treating side effects of chemo Dr Frankel follows low dose protocol used in clinical trials. Total of 130mg daily (30-40mg of CBD, THC, THCA and CBD A) Acid molecules (THCA and CBDA) are gaining more attention due to specific anti-cancer properties What’s the difference between hemp and cannabis? The level of THC. Cannabis contains more than 0.3% THC, hemp is 0.3% or less Dr Frankel recommends using the whole plant rather than stripping out a single molecule Is oil the only option when it comes to therapeutic use of cannabis? Salves can be used for pain and neuropathy 30mg or more of whole plant CBD to prevent neuropathy THCV reverses neuropathy 30-40mg daily of each of the four cannabinoids is a good all round anti-cancer, anti-pain, anti-nausea treatment Can you explain the dosing in more depth? The actual THC or CBD in 1 gram of cannabis oil is around 750gm. The other 250mg is made up of other cannabinoids DIY Formula to produce a reliable dosing tincture of 20mg per milliliter You have 750mg or 75% CBD oil If you want to take 20mg CBD a day then divide 750 by 20 Take this amount of a thin oil like MCT, coconut or olive oil and dissolve your ‘gram’ of CBD oil in it You now have 20 mg of CBD per milliliter of your oil mix Take ½ a milliliter 3 times per day More cost effective to dose this way If we have an internal cannabinoid system, does this mean we should regularly consume them? Endocannabinoid system was developed 1.2 billion years ago, well before the plant-based cannabinoid system (fibrocannabiods) Any species with a spine has an endocannabinoid system The effects of cannabinoids on the endocannabinoid system can be measured Anandamide, one of the components of our endocannabinoid system helps monitor and control cancer. Cannabinoids can bump up our endocannabinoid system and this promotes cell apoptosis, autophagy etc of cancer cells Most common symptoms of endocannabinoid deficiency is migraines, bowel problems. Fibromyalgia, anxiety, disrupted sleep. More common in females What type of cancer patients do you see? Most patients are on conventional treatment protocols alongside cannabis Ballpark of patients who do well on cannabis alone would be 2 out of 3 Lower dose chemotherapy combined with cannabis to mitigate side effects and toxicity Can cannabis prevent long-term chemotherapy side effects? THCV can prevent and reverse neuropathy CBD is protective of the brain and kidneys What is THCV? Only available in California Raises your mood - treats depression Mix with THC to treat migraines. Shown a reduction in symptoms and ability to stop progression of parkinsons in animal studies CBDA - best to treat nausea THCA and CBD - bladder problems, repairs mitochondria, treats myasthenia gravis How much do you take into account strains? We don’t know enough about strains Strains are defined by the other flavinoids, plant waxes and other molecules What are your thoughts on high dose RSO (Rick Simpson Oil)? Sometimes people have good initial response with high dose then cancer comes back Some people do well on RSO Cannabis is a bimodal drug and has opposite effects with high vs low dose 1gm dose is a very high dose - potentially toxic levels Studies of low does (30mg daily) cannabis show great results Do you see children in your practice? What considerations do you make when it comes to kids? See autistic kids on anti-psychotics, ADHD kids on amphetamines and benzos Cannabis much better options than these drugs How would you dose a child? Doesn’t dose by weight - start lower and see how it goes Are there any interactions or complications you are aware of? Cannabis and pharmaceuticals - depends on the dosing, type of cannabis and how it’s taken Oral is biggest issue as both go through the liver Whole plant medicine is different from isolate - dosage is lower Biggest concern with isolates is that we may see more drug interactions Any last comments? Study showed CBD prevents tumors developing tolerance to chemotherapy Dr Frankel recommends anyone with cancer to use cannabis medicine Follow Dr Frankel Greenbridgemed.com - Remote consults are available If you have a question or comment about this episode let us know below!!

Energy Healing, Biofield Healing Immersion, Reiki, | Debora Wayne & Ryan Sternagel
Show notes at https://thesternmethod.com/debora-wayne/ Debora Wayne has always been sensitive to energy and vibrations. She was aware at a deep level of the information that passes through color, light, sound and energy. Major health issues led Debora to look for new skills and tools to rebuild her health. Through meditation she discovered energy healing, life force and intuition. After this, Debora’s life changed. She had found her calling and went on to become a qualified energy healer and Reiki Master. Debora is founder and director of The Biofield Healing Institute and her expertise is helping people all over the world to address the hidden causes of their health issues. ***Resources Mentioned*** The day of Biofield Healing Immersion (50% off using this link!!) Debora's Website Debora’s book: Why do I still hurt? Debora’s blog Debora’s success stories Psy-Tec Labs Study *** In This Episode: Teddy and I have seen first hand the powerful effects of Debora’s Biofield Healing Immersion method when she treated our son Ryder. Ever since I’ve wanted to do a segment on energy healing. Debora doesn’t disappoint, and there’s a special surprise at the end that even I didn’t know about! We start by uncovering what energy healing really is and how Debora got into this area before moving on to energy healing for cancer and the different techniques available. Debora surprised me when she offered to do a mini Biofield Healing Immersion session for listeners to wrap things up. Yes – the healing vibrations can be received just by listening – you don’t have to be there in person to get the benefits! When we talk about energy medicine do we need a different mindset? Thoughts and emotions release chemicals and effect our nervous and immune systems Our energy field is based on understanding physics - light, energy, vibrations We have everything within us to heal. We need to be taught how What is ‘spirit’? Spirituality and energy are different words the same concept How does our inner environment influence our outer reality? Inner = thoughts, emotions and energy Negative emotions and feelings release chemicals Choices become habits, habits become patterns Our bodies are a physical expression of our inner feelings and emotions Earlier tramas are relived as symptoms Dr Lipton did extensive work on how thoughts and emotions manifest physically Thoughts and emotions Influence blood chemistry and cellular membranes Studies on stem cells and how their environment influences how they express themselves. We are no different – our environments impact us mentally, physically, emotionally Intuition – are the answers within us? Feelings are so important. Gut reaction, instincts, coincidence, nagging thoughts are clues We are not taught to cultivate our intuitive sense Intuition is a knowing. Often we let logic override our intuitive side or natural instincts What is cancer from an energetic perspective? All disease is a vibrational pattern that indicates disturbances in our energy field By giving it a name or label we start to believe in it and give it power We need to interrupt the pattern and restore harmony to the field How important are physical toxicity and the toxic threshold? Everything is energy. Everything that we are exposed to – fumes, chemicals etc has a different vibration Our energy fields ‘collect’ these vibrations from our environment Fastest way to clean out our energy field is by raising our vibrations through working energetically in our energy field Results can be experienced very quickly, even instantaneous ‘21st Century high speed healing tools’ Minimise negative vibrations by continuously learn how to find and release them Are all energetic healing methods the same? Reiki, emotion code, healing code, quantum touch etc all the same things? Debora is a reiki master. Now uses Biofield Healing Immersion All methods have different techniques Biofield Healing Immersion (BHI) is not a technique, it’s about accessing a state of consciousness Trains people to access galactic wave lengths (high vibrational frequencies) GDV (Gas Discharge Visualization) Device that illustrates energy fields around the body showed a 51% increase in energy and decrease in pain symptoms in one of Debora’s BHI sessions Stage 4 breast cancer patient declared cancer free within a month of working with Debora using BHI Debora has used many other techniques but has never seen these results before Ryan, Teddy and Ryder’s energy work with Debora Ryder complained of a cold sensation in his lower back where his tumor was After working with Debora he stopped complaining of a cold back Children are more in touch with how they feel. We don’t always know how to interpret these feelings BHI helps achieve a deeper meditative state – a self healing, parasympathetic state Improvements in Ryder’s cognitive ability, comprehension and speech Patients who combine BHI and chemo report improved energy, decreased pain and more energy Can the healing vibrations be transmitted by recording? Yes. Debora does a short BHI session for listeners Be safe: no driving, operating machinery etc. Make sure you are sitting down in a safe place If you feel pressure on temples or even nausea this is a sign the vibrations are being absorbed Helps to calm the mind Fall into meditative state very quickly The day of Biofield Healing Immersion A group healing event Debora is running BHI sessions plus healing information and insights 50% off tuition fees for podcast listeners If you have a question or comment about this episode let us know below!!

Haelan 951, Soy Isoflavones, Genistein, Cancer Supplements | Jordan Todesco & Ryan Sternagel
A first for the Anti-cancer Revolution Podcast… We put the spotlight on one of my favourite anti-cancer products, Haelan 951. I chat to Jordan Todesco, son of Lesly Todesco who founded Haelan Products in 1990. Jordan’s brother Jared is good friend of mine from high school, and the first person I called after Ryder was diagnosed. Jared got us onto Haelan 951 right away and also introduced Teddy and I to a number of natural healers and integrative practitioners which kick-started the path we’re on today. ***Resources Mentioned*** Haelan 951 website (10% discount available to listeners - use the promo code STERN at checkout) PubMed Studies on genistein RGCC test Colon cancer and saponins Pancreatic carcinoma study FSWW08 studies Greens First Calibr8 *** In This Episode: In this first of its kind product deep dive, I speak with Jordan about the anti-cancer compounds of Haelan 951 and what makes this product so unique. We also delve into some of the published studies about the beneficial effects of Haelan 951 on people going through cancer. I’d love to hear what you think of this one so feel free to leave a comment below. What does Haelan mean? Healing in Old English Where did Healan 951 originate from? Originally from China Jordan’s father came across it in 1985 With the help top scientists he improved the formulation to what it is today What is Healin 951? A fermented soy beverage Powerful food - immunonutrition Not all soy is created equal, there are over 2500 species of soy Haelan 951 uses organic, non-GMO soy grown in Mongolia above 3300ft elevation to eliminate cross pollination Multi-stage fermentation process 25lb of whole soy beans into an 8oz serving Packed with anti-cancer compounds such as Isoflavones like genistein and daidzin, and protease inhibitors Highly bioavailable What does genistein do? Incredible studies on this compound in PubMed Genistein can down-regulate the N-Myc gene (a gene that can compromise survival rates in some children with Neuroblastoma) Use search engines like Yahoo or Bing as Google censor alternative health search results A hormone-like substance Inhibits initialization of cellular pathways that lead to cancer Stops notch signaling (regulation of immunity and inflammation in the body) Why is Haelan 951 better than other genistein supplements on the market? 5 compounds within the specific strain of soy bean work together synergistically Often the RGCC test recommends genistein More genistein per serving Bioavailabilty is second to none Out bodies only absorb 39-53% of supplements in capsule form. A lot of capsule content can be filler Pure form of genistein, not synthetic. 99% purity rate, nearest competitor is around 91% purity Very specific strain of soy bean Protease inhibitors Prevent synthesis of key proteins required for cancer cells to spread such as the the Bowman-Berk inhibitor that has a suppressive effect on cancer cells Saponins Latin word for soap Plant steroid that foams when mixed with water Within our bodies: Induce apoptosis (death) of cancer cells Fight free radicals Improve immune function Block signalling pathways that lead to cancer Particularly effective for colon cancer Phytosterols Similar to cholesterol Lowers risk of heart disease Improves blood flow - critical for healing and in spreading nutrients around the body Amino acids Loaded with essential and branch chain amino acids The soy / estrogen debate Phytoestrogens (plant estrogen) are weaker estrogen Received by the cell and ‘fills’ it up Some cancers are estrogen driven so blocking this power source is good Breast cancer patients who consume flaxseeds have seen reduced recurrence The ‘aggressive’ estrogen comes from things like plastics and toxins in skin care Haelan 951 comes in a glass bottle for this reason Studies on Haelan 951 Induces growth arrest and apoptosis in pancreatic carcinoma Classified by FDA as a food FSWW08 was used as a term for Haelan 951 in blind or double-blind studies Used by athletes Study shows improvements in PTSD - balance hormonal issues with phytoestrogens Benefits seen in hematology and cachexia (side effect of chemo) Breast cancer studies ALS studies Is Haelan 951 covered by insurance?

Stage 4 Melanoma Survivor, Coley’s Toxins, Gerson Therapy | Bailey O'Brien
In 2011 Bailey was diagnosed with stage 4 inoperable melanoma and was told she had just a few months to live. Bailey didn't agree. After researching alternative options she radically changed her diet and jumped on a plane to Mexico for treatment and never looked back. 8 years later Bailey is cancer-free and is now helping others through their integrative cancer journeys. Bailey is an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach and a Certified Square One Cancer Coach. Her focus is on diet and lifestyle as the foundation to health and healing. ***Resources Mentioned*** Bailey’s website Dr Jeanne Wallace, Nutritional Solutions Badger sunscreen Rene Chee, Curing Cancer with Immunotherapy Spontaneous Remission Project The Reinvention of Coley's Toxins, Donald MacAdam Is cancer dangerous to the immune system?, Polly Matzinger CHIPSA Hospital, Mexico *** In This Episode: Bailey shares her incredible cancer journey starting from when she was first diagnosed with melanoma as a teenager to its recurrence 3 years later. In 2011, after multiple surgeries she was given the devastating news that her cancer was inoperable and she didn’t qualify for the latest new drug. Bailey felt hopeless. But with the help of friends and family she radically turned her life and health around and now inspire others with her amazing healing story. Have you always been holistically inclined? Studying dietetics as an undergrad Didn’t agree with what being taught in nutrition classes When working in conventional medicine, nutrition is secondary to pharmaceutical drugs Believe in the power of nutrition as medicine When healing from cancer food was the medicine Is there a difference between what is learned to become a registered dietitian working as part of the conventional system compared to what we learn through ‘alternative’ channels like this? Nutritionists and dieticians have mostly the right ideas There are benefits of having first hand experience of healing through food Conventional system can help with acute things like diabetes Problems arise when the conventional system considers something ‘incurable’ What led to your diagnosis? Was studying away from home Fearful of the world and doing things on my own. Didn’t feel like I fit in Very stressed and didn’t know how to deal with it. Started overeating Sailing camp counselor - got a lot of sun exposure and sun burns Used lots of toxic body products After all your research, what’s your advice on sun exposure? Sensible exposure - don’t get burnt, if you’re pale, be careful Recommend non-nano zinc or titanium dioxide (although toxicity of titanium dioxide has come into question) Recommends Badger Sunscreen Regular sunscreen is full of toxic chemicals and can be more harmful than not wearing anything Titanium Dioxide provides a physical barrier between sun and skin. The size of the particulars are important. Nanoparticles are small enough to get into the bloodstream. Look for non-nano sunscreen Back to diagnosis... Found a weird looking spot Biopsy showed it was highly suspicious for a melanoma DIdn’t know anything about cancer, just knew it was serious Had surgery to remove legion and a tracer was injected to see where melanoma had spread Tracer showed cancer had spread to lymph node near ear More surgery, removed 45 lymph nodes from neck and parotid gland. Nodes removed were not positive Given two options - do nothing or Interferon treatments (an older form of immunotherapy) Opted for Interferon to help prevent a recurrence. Wasn’t doing anything else to support body in terms of diet and lifestyle 2 years later melanoma returned Two more 2 surgeries to remove tumors plus a round of radiation treatment Found another lump under chin that was melanoma Scan showed another 5 lesions in neck lung and spine that were suspicious Oncologist recommended Temodar (chemotherapy pill) and PABA (b-vitamin) Was told cancer was very aggressive and had only months to live Started looking at alternative treatments Where did you start? Took some supplements and did one round of Temodar and PABA Tumor started to shrink Went to CHIPSA in Mexico and started the Gerson Therapy, Coley’s Toxins, B17 injections and IV Vitamin C When left Mexico lump had disappeared from under chin Before went to Mexico saw an integrative oncologist / naturopathic doctor who prescribed modified citrus pectin, resveratrol, green tea extract and glutamine powder during radiation. Recommended high protein diet organic diet with no sugar. Not the perfect diet but heading in the right direction Gerson therapy Lots of juicing, vegetables and carbohydrates Cancer result of nutrient deficiency and toxins in the body Coffee enemas to detox Potassium powder Self vs non-self immune system model Danger model - immune system doesn’t respond to things that are foriegn but rather to things that look dangerous such as surgery or infections Cancer cells can have a ‘cloaking’ effect to ‘hide’ from the immune system Damage a cancer cell through chemo the immune system can recognise it and respond Preserve your immune system through low dose chemo not high Immunotherapy can also help with stubborn tumors Coley’s Toxins Mixture of two different bacteria injected intravenously, subcutaneously or intratumorally To stimulate an immune response in the body that attacks the cancer Often people who go into spontaneous remission have had an infection Came home from Mexico and continued protocol: Coley’s Toxin - 3 injections per week Coffee enemas - 3 per day Juices - 13 a day with iodine and potassium supplements B vitamins - intramuscular injections once a week 2 months after Mexico went for scan - no sign of active disease Did your Oncologist seem to believe in the alternative treatment? Oncologist was so emotionless. Said “whatever you’re doing seems to be working so keep it up” How do you guide others going through an integrative cancer journey? Do your own research There are somethings that people must do - diet, lifestyle and managing stress are the most important Often people stop too soon. 18 months to 2 years minimum Recommends using prayer for guidance and healing Follow Bailey Bailyobrien.com Facebook Instagram If you have a question or comment about this episode let us know below!!

Fake Alternative Cancer Treatments? GcMAF, Fake Rife Machines, Hulda Clarke, Baking Soda, Protocel, Marshall Protocol | Dr Keith Scott Mumby
I get Dr Keith’s take on cancer and the best way to address it before we explore some of the more questionable anti-cancer protocols that I’ve come across in the quest to help my son Ryder on his healing journey. We take a look under the hood of Protocel, GcMAF, Hulda Regehr Clark’s Zappers, the Marshall Protocol, Sodium Bicarbonate Protocol and fake Rife machines. You don’t want to miss this one. ***Resources Mentioned*** Cancer Research Secrets by Dr Keith Scott-Mumby Psychology of Cancer by Dr Keith Scott-Mumby Punk Psychology by Dr Keith Scott-Mumby Jeffrey Smith - The Institute of Responsible Technology Séralini Study - long-term toxicity of RoundUp (glyphosate) Dr Mark Hyman Joe Mercola on the The Marshall Protocol The Doctor that Cures Cancer by William Kelley Eidem GB4000 Frequency Machine *** What is the right way to address cancer? “Every good health measure is an anti-cancer measure” Cancer is a wake up call Three fundamentals: Nutrition - offload all of your ‘bad’ foods for you Emotional detox - often a trama or shock before cancer diagnosis. References the work of Dr Hayma. Reduce chemical load - reduce chemical exposure “You don’t need zero of everything to see a result” but you must make changes to address the root cause of the cancer Starting points for physical & emotional detox? Punk psychology is a technique MIN - Make It Now Your memory is ‘plastic’ - change the impact of a memory and your relationship to it by reliving it in the right way Remove toxins from your life The nose survey - go around your house and sniff - if you can smell it it can make you sick Eat organic. Evidence shows organic food has a powerful impact on health Séralini and a group of French Scientists fed rats glyphosate and GMO food and they developed huge tumors How do you assess the validity of alternative cancer treatments? Testimonials are not science - you can get well while taking something but not necessarily because of taking something Anything that seems dangerous, ineffective or obscenely expensive should be a red flag Kerala Institute in Sweden showed 20% of breast cancers will go into remission without any treatment Dr Hyman - cancer has a purpose. It’s there for a reason. The body is trying to fix something Protocol 1 debunked: Cancell / Cantron / Protocel Combination of highly toxic substances including sulphuric acid and nitric acid False science around its effectiveness These chemicals are highly toxic - yes they will kill cancer cells in a petri dish - they will kill anything! People have died from taking it. Don’t do anything that is clearly going to hurt you Protocol 2 debunked: GcMAF Beware of science from anyone trying to sell you something The study was dishonest. The people who developed it have a warrant out for their arrest Nothing showing its effectiveness, especially when compared to Dr Keith’s three fundamentals Protocol 3 debunked: Hulda Regehr Clark’s Zapper Exploited patients by charging $30K for things they could do themselves Her book claims she cured 100 consecutive cases of cancer but in all of these cases Hulda was the person who diagnosed the cancer and pronounced the patient cured Developed a parasite zapper to cure cancer Dr Keith believes Hulda was influenced by her own condition - she had a particular rare parasite and so she saw that in everyone she treated Irreversible electroporation is Royal Rife technology that’s gone mainstream Protocol 4 debunked: The Marshall Protocol Documented science showing Vitamin D has incredibly powerful anti-cancer properties The Marshall Protocol advocates avoiding Vitamin D in any form which is dangerous for anyone with cancer Vitamin D, C and glutathione are essential for cancer support Joe Mercola wrote an article expressing his views against the The Marshall Protocol Protocol 5 debunked: Sodium Bicarbonate Protocol Fungus can thrive when immune system and so does cancer - doesn’t mean Candida causes cancer Loading the body with bicarbonate is dangerous The body needs PH of around 7.3. The body will maintain this so it puts undue strain on kidneys Alkalising the body doesn’t cure cancer Emanuel Revici studied the metabolic aspects of cancer. Discovered two kinds of people - those who benefit from alkalization and those who benefit from acidization. If you don’t know what group you’re in your going to harm yourself.

Protocol 6 debunked: Fake Rife Machines Most ‘Rife’ machines are missing critical carrier wave frequencies. They have only audio frequencies and that’s not enough You can add carrier wave technology to something like the Beema 3000 The GB4000 is what we use. This device has carrier frequencies and is a model Dr Keith would recommend Follow Dr Keith Cancer Research Secrets website The Alternative Doctor If you have a question or comment about this episode please leave a reply below

After undergoing a mastectomy, Kate refused chemotherapy and instead turned to the Gerson Therapy and other integrative treatments to heal herself. Prepare to be inspired and entertained by Kate’s candid interview! Kate was not always health conscious 53 years old, mom of four, type A personality Busy raising her kids and building a business In an abusive relationship Drank gallons of tea and coffee a day Lived off her kids leftovers and chocolate The diagnosis Started experiencing problems with her breast augmentation.

052: Sound Healing, Vibration Therapy, Healing Frequencies, Sleep Remedies | Michael Tyrrell
You are really going to like this episode all about vibration and the healing power of sound with Michael Tyrrell. Michael is an author, visionary, musician, composer, and producer. He exists to bring love, healing and motivation to a hurting world and in turn, inspire others in our generation to do the same. ***Resources Mentioned*** Michael’s Wholetones 2 Sleep Player for deep healing sleep - Use code STERN for $10 off!! Michael’s book The Sound of Healing Michael’s website 120 Hz Frequency Royal Rife Used for Cancer Explained The Biology of Belief book by Bruce Lipton The Magnasphere Michael used to instantly heal his laryngitis Sonos speakers Michael recommends (but please don’t use the WiFi!!) *** This topic definitely falls firmly into the energetic side of the healing spectrum. If you are skeptical or doubtful of such things, I would refer you to everyone’s favorite Nikola Tesla quote, “If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” In This Episode: The power of frequencies In this episode, Ryan catches up with songwriter and producer Michael Tyrrell to discuss the healing power of frequencies and music, and why most music we listen to today is delivered at the wrong frequency. Frequencies are everywhere Every time you speak your voice box vibrates and creates a frequency. When you form words your tongue vibrates and that's a frequency too. Music creates frequencies and some fo these frequencies have the power to heal. Not all frequencies are healing A musician all his life, Michael knew from an early age that there was something wrong with music. Frequencies are measured using unit of measurement called Hertz (Hz). Michael wanted to know why tuners calibrated at a specific frequency (440 Hz). “Who says this is how you must tune your instrument?” Micheal discovered through traveling the world that not everyone tunes to the same note. Micheal wanted to know where the standardized A=440 Hz frequency came from. What he discovered shocked him. This frequency has an attachment to Nazi Germany and mind control, and is a frequency that can disrupt the circadian rhythm of the human body. Micheal’s story Fate or God brought Michael to a coffee house in Tel Aviv, Israel where he met a pianist called David who told Michael that when he woke up that morning God had told him he was to give his life’s work away today. David spent his life studying and decoding the ancient psalms of King David – ancient Hebraic forms of music. He gave these manuscripts to Michael in a backpack. Michael got home and played some of the music but his guitar was still tuned to 440 Hz. He put the music in his study and forgot about it for two years. Michael came home one day with the number 222 in his head. He reached for his Bible wondering what he’d find on page 222. Sure enough he found reference to Kind David. He instinctively knew to double the number 222. 444 is a derivative of A but 4 cents higher. Michael calibrated his guitar to 444 Hz, pulled out the manuscripts from David and started playing. His hairs stood on end - he could feel the music. Healing frequencies Michael explains that 444 Hz is a balanced frequency. Instruments become more stable and stay in tune longer at that frequency. Michael has discovered 7 frequencies that have been used to heal and protect since ancient times. He has created a compilation of music using these healing frequencies called Wholetones®: The Healing Frequency Music Project. The power of the spoken word Ryan and Teddy have been working with an energy healer who told them that Ryder had “a summer heat” trapped inside his body. For the next two nights Ryder woke up drenched in sweat as the heat was worked out of him. Ryan explains that ancient writers associated the constellation Cancer with ‘a summer heat’. Michael explains that words in descriptive and energetic forms have the ability to bless or curse. Michael encourages people to speak life to each other. If we can get out of the ‘them versus us’ mentality we can change the world. Michael reminds us about the law of vibration and that the beginning of the universe was spoken “Let there be light”. “Frequencies were introduced into the world by the mouth of God.” The importance of higher vibration Michael believes that cancer is a disease of the environment. “We are being bombarded by negative frequencies such as EMFs”. Michael focuses on creating energetic environments of peace and sleep, that are conducive to healing and help people to relax and smile. He wants to help people into a space of homeostasis and spontaneous healing. Michal explains higher vibration is better than lower vibration. “Negative people are low vibration. When you’re a high performing person frequency wise you operate with a lot of love.” Micheal recommends making sure the frequencies you use are congruent and balanced, can interact with each other and can elicit healing. Royal Rife 120 Hz frequency There are specific frequencies that are useful for different parts of the human body and some frequencies that are too close to one another can mask each other. Other experts and resources Michael believes frequencies can affect your body on a cellular level. Ryan references Biology of Belief by Dr Bruce Lipton which discusses how thoughts can change blood chemistry, epigenetics etc. Michael talks about Nicola Tesla and his studies on frequency. He created the Pico-Tesla frequency. Tesla believed that by vibrating parts of the body with low amplitude frequency he could bring spontaneous healing. Michael cites another example, Dr Jerry Jacobson and his Magnasphere, a frequency arch that works on Pico-Tesla frequencies. Michael explains that he healed himself of Laryngitis after 15-20 minutes in the Magnasphere. Michael has written a book called The Sound of Healing to help people unlock their potential. The best way to listen to frequencies Ryan asks Michael the best way to listen to frequencies. Michael explains that the problem is truncation or compression. “When you digitize anything you’re converting wave form into numbers”. So the best way to experience frequencies is in analog. Michael records Wholetones in analog. However he goes on to say that MP3s are better than nothing. The Wholetones samples on Michael’s website are MP3s. Michael recommends Sonos Sound Systems. Ryan asks Michael about different instruments. Micheal explains the frequencies are all the same it’s just a different modality - humming, crystal bowls, Tibetan bowls etc. It doesn’t matter about the instrument - just as long as it’s a balanced, healing frequency. Michael encourages a proactive approach to health “don’t wait until sickness arrives before making changes”. Sleep disorders - a modern day anomaly “Why are people sleeping less?” Michael explains that EMFs, 5G, photonic energy and wifi are all disrupting our sleep. “If you’re not sleeping 6-8 hours a day your body cannot heal.” Michael remembers the times he slept the most soundly was in his mothers arms. She sand him lullabies - the song, creating soothing vibrations. Michael has created Wholetones Sleep, a collection of lullabies. A nurse once told Michael that Wholetones should be the soundtrack for the entry and exit of every human in the world it was that calming.. Michael has created a Wholetones player to deliver the music at maximum quality. Michael tells the story of the Wholetones launch party where everyone fell asleep. The joke is that the song on the album Angels All Around Us is “the song no one’s ever heard the end of”. But the medical community want scientific evidence so Michael conducted a clinical trial with control groups. The results were conclusive - trial participants that listened to Wholetones fell asleep faster, stayed asleep longer and woke up feeling more refreshed than those who didn’t. Michael explains that for some people the effects of Wholetones work straight away while others need more repetition. Volume is also not important when working with frequency as long as it’s audible.

051: Ketotarian - Plant Based Ketogenic Diet, Addressing Criticisms of Ketogenic & Plant Based Diets, Ketosis and Cancer: Dr. Will Cole
Review Article & Resources Mentioned This is episode 51 of Integrative Answers to Cancer with Dr. Will Cole. Another repeat guest to the show but a very timely one. If you listened to last week’s episode with my son Ryder’s original naturopathic oncologist and also foremost in the country Dr. Paul Anderson after we’d saw a bit of unexpected growth on his last MRI he was talking about some of the success he’s had with a ketogenic style diet in combination with other metabolic therapies but he also mentioned that most people who promote the ketogenic diet stupidly in his words, meaning people should be talking about plants a whole lot more than they do and another previous guest of the show Doctor Will Cole who was on back in episode forty to talk about functional medicine in cancer has a new book out on a plant based ketogenic diet so I figured it would be good timing to get him on and pick his brain on that. And as you know we’ve had some pretty strong opinions on ketosis both ways from guests of this show and one of the primary complaints was that again so much animal product consumption is promoted which Dr. Cole is obviously addressing with his book but I also wanted to as long as we were at it to to bring up as many other criticisms or complaints I’ve heard along the lines of a ketogenic diet just being flat out unnatural plants or no plants and as it pertains to cancer in particular the lack of available data on long term survivors and I liked his answers and hope you do to. By now hopefully you know about us we try not to completely close ourselves off from any new information or not go too deep down any one rabbit hole and always keep the big picture in mind and ask how new information fits into it and I think this interview does a good job of that.

Metabolic Therapies, Keto vs. Gerson, Mature Cancer Cells, Using DCA: Dr. Paul Anderson
Dr. Paul Anderson consults on: Synergistic metabolic therapies Ganglioneuroma & mature cancer cells Ketogenic vs. fruit sugar approaches Neurological tumors DCA efficacy for cancer & safety Resources, Supplements & Studies Mentioned / Summary Article As it relates directly to this podcast and everything we do online the other thing that’s happened to us recently which I believe I did mention in the intro to the last episode before we went dark was our son Ryder’s own MRI not going exactly the way we wanted it. He’s got a remaining mass on the inside of and around his spine that everyone was pretty well convinced was just dead scar tissue at this point but a portion on the outside of the spine had grown a bit over the past year since his last scan. So, with that, everything we’ve done online has been a result of our son being diagnosed with cancer in the first place obviously and documenting what we learn along the way but with this MRI this is getting taken to the next level. So a lot of what you see and hear us do is going to be directly recording conversation we’re having or actions we’re taking pertaining to Ryder’s healing. As that relates to this podcast specifically you’re going to hear actual conversations we’re having with naturopathic doctors and healers of all kinds in addition to the more classical style of interviews you’re used to and that is what we have here for this episode today. Doctor Paul Anderson makes his third appearance on the show right after being the first ever second time guest but this time it’s in a more consultative role picking up where he left off as Ryder’s original and best I might add naturopathic oncologist.

049: Cancer in Germany vs. America
Kirstin Nussgruber Discusses: Her experience going through cancer once in Germany and once in America Change from within, where the cancer came from Keeping feelings and emotions together during treatment Video Interviews and Anticancer How-To’s Anticancer Inspiration After being diagnosed with breast cancer twice within 3 years, Kirstin learnt firsthand the importance of an integrative and functional medicine approach to one’s health, acknowledging the dynamic interdependency of body, mind and soul to facilitate true healing. Kirstin offers individualized 1 on 1 mentoring, can be hired for inspirational speaking engagements and produces interactive virtual programs such as the Beyond Cancer Program. if you’ve ever thought that Sternagel is a very German sounding last name, well it’s because it is it means star and nail which I’ve always thought is pretty cool and will make for a really cool family crest or something some day but the other reason is that it actually has to do with one of the primary topics of the interview. Kirstin is incredibly well versed in a balanced approach to cancer because she’s gone through it twice, one time in Germany and once in America so it was really interesting talking about the differences in what it’s like to go through cancer in each country and in particular there were a few great insights for those of us going through it in the good ol’ USA. We also talked about changing from within as the cancer came from within and please devote an inordinate amount of time to this topic if you are going through cancer and on a related note how to keep it together while going through active treatment.
