Lightbulb Supplements for Cancer Patients

Some supplements that may benefit those going through cancer treatments or recovering from them...

Quote:
if you or a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer, your options may seem limited: surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation—or all of the above. Nutritional therapies, however, can complement conventional therapies by enhancing the healing process, fighting the cancer, reducing drug and radiation side effects, and often improving your long-term survival odds.

But if you mention vitamin supplements to oncologists— the doctors who specialize in cancer treatment—you’ll probably get a big thumb’s down. As a general rule, oncologists discourage patients from taking supplemental vitamins and antioxidants.
Why so? The reason relates to the theory behind radiation and most chemo drugs. Both therapies produce large numbers of destructive molecules known as free radicals, which oncologists hope will destroy more cancer cells than normal cells. Antioxidants and some vitamins are known to neutralize free radicals, so many oncologists believe that supplements will negate the benefits of radiation and chemo.

But this line of thinking is mostly theoretical, not proven—a fact that oncologists shy away from acknowledging. Furthermore, high-dose antioxidants and vitamin supplements actually work through a variety of mechanisms that can give cancer patients an edge. Supplements can enhance immune system function, inhibit the growth of cancer cells, and reduce metastasizing behavior.

If you want to take a cautious approach, you can take supplements after you finish chemo or radiation. But compelling research suggests that you might be better off taking supplements during the treatment process.

Sometimes I read these articles and despair.
The human species evolved living near naked mostly outdoors lives eating a mainly organic free range meat/fish based diet though some organic fruit and veggies may have been available in some places.

Living near naked outdoors = high vitamin d3 & high melatonin availability.

Why no mention of correcting vitamin d and melatonin deficiency status in any anti cancer regime?

The free range meat/fish and organic veggies/fruit = high omega 3 status which was covered in the article but also represent a LOW CARBOHYDRATE, LOW GLYCEMIC INDEX DIET.

How smart do you have to be to work out that if you have cancer and cancer's preferred fuel is glucose it may be a smart move to stop feeding your enemy it's preferred fuel ASP.
Cancer's were not found in primitive peoples eating traditional foods.
Cancer only appeared on the scene along with the modern western diets, refined carbohydrates and sugars.
What do cancers cells prefer as their fuel choice for growth?
Stop feeding your cancer glucose is probably the best option for most people.

There is no money to be made in a cure for cancer.

We also live in a world where the top 1% want the population reduced to under a billion, thus treating disease is not even on their menu.

In fact, they are developing vaccines that sterilize. (and cause disease)

Iodine supplementation is essential for breast cancer. Some cases are cured by iodine supplementation ALONE. This is a section of an interview of Dr Flechas, and iodine expert. I have attached the total PDF file also.

 I took my mother to Dr. Flechas in Hendersonville MC yesterday. Flechas is one of the original iodine doctors working with Abraham's Iodoral and protocols.
My mother has a small goiter that he told her should disappear with a few months on increased iodine.
We spent about 1-½ hours with him and he had a number of interesting things to say about using iodine. I'm going to bullet some of them below and will get the rest later when I get home and re-listen to the tape.
Lynn
 
Cancer: Nurse that did the intake on my mom said she started working for Flechas after seeing him for her cancer. She had cancer tumors in her uterus and breasts. She had a hysterectomy and was scheduled for a mastectomy when she decided to see him. He put her on 100mg of Iodoral/day and within 2 weeks her tumors were shrinking. She canceled her mastectomy.  She did say she had horrible detox reactions in the beginning including acne and a horrible smell. That eventually went away.

Cancer: Flechas told us about one young woman whose breast cancer had metastasized to her rib cage and left kidney. He started her on 100mgs of Iodoral and 21 days later her PET scan showed no cancer

Thyroid hormone and breast cancer He said the studies are indicating that taking any type of thyroid (natural or not) will increase the risk of cancer as it blocks iodine absorption. He has had patients come to him with fibrocystic breasts and use iodine to take care of the problem. Then their primary physician will put them on thyroid hormone and the breasts will get painful again. He gradually takes all patients off thyroid as they become loaded with iodine.

Mammogram vs. thermograms. Said the breasts stay hot for a few days after a mammogram. He believes in thermograms but only if you can consistently use the same place and the person knows how to read them.

(My question -- A lot of people are experiencing constipation with Iodoral and use Lugol’s instead…what's causing that?) Flechas – Lugol’s gives 20% of the people using it stomach problems and acidity and Iodoral absorbs better. The constipation problem is because iodine makes the cell membrane far more permeable to Mg causing it to be used up and not available to the colon cells. These cells need Mg to operate correctly. The solution is to use between 500-1500mgs of magnesium oxide.
(My question – Does iodine block estrogen receptors? Flechas – No not block it reduces the number of receptors BUT it increases the receptivity of ALL hormone receptors on the cells. So estrogen is still available to the cell. (My question – Does it reduce or block the receptors for progesterone?) Flechas – Progesterone makes iodine more available to the cell.

Testing for bromine and fluorine this will soon be available at his office and can be ordered just like the iodine-loading test is.  Of the two he feels bromine is far more dangerous.

Cogimax - a silica based supplement from Optimox (Abraham’s company that produces Iodoral) that he uses with Alzheimer’s and ADD patients.   He said silica loading is extremely effective for brain problems.
 
I posted this earlier today at work and couldn't recall some of the details. Just listened to the tape again and redid the notes. Here's a much more complete version. The last point on Vit C and elevated TSH is very interesting.
Lynn
Cancer: Nurse that did the intake on my mom said she started working for Flechas after seeing him for her cancer. She had ovarian cancer and numerous tumors in her breasts. She had a hysterectomy and was scheduled for a mastectomy when she decided to see him. He put her on 100mg of Iodoral/day and within 2 weeks her tumors were shrinking. She canceled her mastectomy.  She did say she had horrible detox reactions in the beginning including acne and a horrible smell. That eventually went away. Her loading test was very low and it took her a year to get it up.

Cancer: Flechas told us about one young woman with stage 4 breast cancer that had metastasized to her rib cage and left liver. He started her on 100mgs of Iodoral and 21 days later her PET scan showed no cancer

Thyroid hormone and breast cancer He said the studies are indicating that taking any type of thyroid (natural or not) will increase the risk of cancer as it blocks iodine absorption. He has had patients come to him with fibrocystic breasts and use iodine to take care of the problem. Then their primary physician will put them on thyroid hormone and the breasts will get painful again. He gradually takes all patients off thyroid as they become loaded with iodine.
Talked about that when they are using radioactive thyroid to blast the thyroid gland but take patients off all thyroid meds 2 weeks before so the thyroid meds won't block the iodine. Didn't say how the research shows that this is the same in breasts -- except to mention patients who solve their fibrocystic problems then get put on thyroid meds by another physician and the breast problems return. He had a number of patients that this has happen to. (This very thing happened to me over the summer when a new doctor put me back on thyroid meds)
Mammogram vs. thermograms. Said the breasts stay hot for a few days after a mammogram. He believes in thermograms but only if you can consistently use the same place and the person knows how to read them.  
He said that you need to have all the thermograms together to compare them every time it's done. So don't skip around with different places.
(My question- A lot of people are experiencing constipation with Iodoral and use Lugol’s instead…what's causing that?)
Flechas – Lugol’s gives 20% of the people using it have stomach problems and acidity. Very few people have this happen on Iodoral and it absorbs far better. The constipation problem is because Iodoral is absorbed better and then creates more thyroid hormone. Thyroid hormone is "the guardian of Mg at the cellular level" so it's pushing magnesium into the cells lowering what's available to the colon cells. Colon cells need Mg to operate correctly. The solution is to use between 500-1500mgs of magnesium oxide.
(My question – Does iodine block estrogen receptors?)
Flechas – No not block it reduces the number of receptors BUT it increases the sensitivity of ALL hormone receptors on the cells. So estrogen is still available to the cell but the drop in receptors keeps the tissues from being overstimulated.
Eskin wrote this up at the April 2005 American Cancer Society conference.
(My question – Does it reduce or block the receptors for progesterone?)
Flechas – Progesterone makes iodine more available to the cell.
Hyperthyroid patients Graves disease patients and other with autoimmune disease take iodine also but use lithium and copper among other minerals (he didn't say) to decrease the overproduction of thyroid hormones. Iodine isn't reduced because it's the neutralizer of the thyroid.  Patients in a thyroid storm with high heartbeats are given iodine to calm it down as normal medical practice.

Goiters In some patients with goiters the iodine will stimulate it to produce more thyroid hormone and the patient will suddenly look hyperthyroid with elevated T4 and losing weight. As the goiter shrinks this normalizes.

Using temperatures to check thyroid.  Said Broda Barnes got it wrong because other hormones will also cause temps to be high or too low.

TSH accuracy. TSH is determined by the individual. Some people have elevated TSH on iodine. This is due to Vit C deficiency in the presence of iodine. He gives lots of Vit. C and the TSH goes down.
