Critical Analysis of Trump Economic Program

    The Trump economic program is the tried and true Republican program of cutting taxes and investing in infrastructure to stimulate the economy. Unfortunately, it would collapse the US and world economy. In order to avoid that, the absolutely first priority of the Trump administration is to balance the budget and decrease the trade deficit in order to reassure the financial market. [Read More]

    Supplement Program to Improve Immune System and Repair Cellular Damage – Part I

    I am not a doctor, so I do not give medical advice; I am a journalist, so I can discuss things of interest. If anyone has a lump in their breast or is passing blood or has some unexplained pain, they should immediately see a health professional.

    About nine years ago my 69-year-old brother-in-law went in for his yearly physical; in one spot the lymph glands in his abdominal area were enlarged. The clinic did a hollow needle biopsy and determined he had an indolent follicular lymphoma but only a 10% chance it would require treatment. Since a few years before he had prostate cancer surgery, he researched alternative treatments and combined several immune system protocols. In one year that lymph gland had returned to normal size. Recently, David went to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. where they did an MRI and found no cancer, only a little scar tissue. Over the last nine years six cases of cancer have gone into remission using variations of this protocol. Three of the cancers were stage 4 and conventional medicine had given up on them. Each person who has used the protocol has made changes to suit their own situation.

    A 78-year-old retired nurse with stage-4 liver cancer and three cancer lesions on her liver is using the protocol. The cancer was too far advanced for conventional treatment, so she tried the protocol. In three months, she went back to Virginia Mason Hospital; the cancerous lesions had decreased by 50%. In seven months, she went back to Virginia Mason and they performed another Cat Scan. They said she still had a little cancer, but it shouldn't cause any problem; she should come back in a year unless she developed symptoms. I decided that the protocol worked and I should put it on the internet for anyone to use. All the protocol does is supply nutrition on a cellular level so that the body can make repairs and start functioning normally. You must make changes in your diet and lifestyle. I recommend the book Fear Cancer No More for diet and life style changes. You must read all the material and become an expert on cancer. Everyone I know who told me, “ I really trust my oncologist," who had stage-4 cancer, died. I don't believe anyone should die from cancer. Conventional and alternative treatments can be added to the nutritional base if needed. I know of two people in Jefferson County that are keeping stage-4 prostate cancer in control by diet and eating 25 bitter almonds each day for the laetrile.

    1) Take one ounce of flaxseed oil with three heaping tablespoons of 4% cottage cheese twice a day. Add one rounded teaspoon of lecithin for each tablespoon of flaxseed oil and mix will. The Budwig Cancer Diet recommends two tablespoons of flaxseed oil twice a day. I tried it and it acted like a laxative but one tablespoon twice a day was tolerated. If you can, increase the flaxseed oil to four tablespoons per day, but we've had good results with two tablespoons per day. Use only cold pressed refrigerated flaxseed oil and buy it locally to ensure quality. Rancid oil will do you no good. The lecithin and 4% cottage cheese emulsify the flaxseed oil and make it water soluble, so it can be used by the body. The sulfur and proteins in the flaxseed oil combine to make a water soluble emulsion that the body can use to repair the outer cell membrane.

    The body needs Linolenic fatty acid for cell repair and cell division. These are omega-3 essential fatty acids, meaning that the body must get them from the food we eat. Fortunately cold pressed flax seed oil is 70% essential fatty acids. The body also needs DHA and EPA . The body manufactures them but in an insufficient amount. Take a couple of teaspoons, or eight or nine grams, of fish oil each day to get the EPA and DHA you need. Salmon oil, krill oil, and various types of fish oil from Norway would do the job. They all work. Make sure they're not rancid, buy from a health food store instead of the cheapest thing you can buy at WalMart. There is a lot of information on the internet on the Budwig Cancer Diet that explains why the essential fatty acids are so important. Every cell in you body uses them.

    Go to www.porttownsendthinktank.org for a discussion on the Budwig Cancer Diet and why it works.

    2) Take one ounce of Vibe, a liquid nutritional supplement, made by Eniva, twice a day. Eniva says that one ounce per day is for normal health maintenance and you can use up to three ounces per day. Vibe provides nutrition at the cellular level and is very important. Take the Vibe with a glass of water or fruit juice and start out with one ounce the first day and build up gradually. One ounce is equal to two tablespoons. You can Google Port Townsend Think Tank for more information on the protocol. You can order Vibe through Eniva. Get the original Vibe.

    3) Take one ounce of Georges Aloe Vera extract twice a day. It is available in The Uptown Nutrition in Port Townsend, Washington or almost any health store.

    4) Buy a bottle of dark Willard Water concentrate. Call: 1-800-447-4793 to place an order. Cancer produces energy by a fermentation process. Cancer metabolism is very inefficient and produces lactic acid, which causes the body chemistry to become more acidic. Mix three tablespoons of Willard Water Dark Concentrate in a gallon of water and drink two or three glasses of the mixture each day. At least 36 oz of Willard Water per day. Willard Water will keep the blood pH at 7.35 where it should be, but it also decreases the surface tension of water and allows vitamins and minerals to pass through cell membranes. Bacteria in the soil produce small amounts of organic compounds that are necessary for life. Unfortunately, herbicides, pesticides, and commercial fertilizers kill the bacteria in the soil. The expert is Dr. David Jubb who is a professor in California on micronutrients and you can Google him for more information. Willard Water is important, so don't leave it out of the protocol.

    5) Take ashwagandha and curcumin as directed. Typically ashwagandha comes in 450 mg capsules and curcumin in 850 mg capsules, give or take a little. Both suppress enzymes that cancer needs to reproduce. Nearly every health supplement store, including Uptown Nutrition, carries them, or you can order them through swanson.com or call: Swanson at 1-800-437-4148.

    6) Vitamins and minerals are important. There are 8 types of vitamin E. The vitamin E usually sold is the alpha variety which has little or no cancer fighting ability. The best variety is the Gamma variety. I've found that Swanson has the best deal. Item SWU329 gives you 750 units of Gamma and 400 units of other types of vitamin E. The cost is $10.99 for a month's supply. It is listed as Gamma Tocopherol. The Swanson phone number is: 800-437-4148. Vitamin A is toxic if you take too much, but if you take beta carotene, your body will convert what it needs to vitamin A safely. Twenty-five thousand units is suggested. Also, eat a lot of carrots and carrot juice. Take 2000 units of vitamin C, 6000 units of vitamin D, 50 mg of Zinc, 200 micrograms (mcg) of selenium each day. Additionally, 400 mg of Co enzyme Q10 and 1000 mg of M.S. M. taken twice a day. Co enzyme Q10 is the enzyme that allows the body to metabolize glucose to produce energy. If you live in a sunny area, try to get 20 or 30 minutes of sunshine a day without sunscreen. Take care to not sunburn, and stay out of the sun if you are taking medication that causes you to sunburn.

    7) Most alternative cancer treatments require diet and lifestyle changes. They also usually recommend that the person take an enzyme that dissolves protein. Cancer builds a protein membrane around cancer cells and hides from the immune system. My brother-in-law took a small can of pineapple juice once a day between meals. The nurse with liver cancer took two or three papaya enzyme tablets at bed time. The body repairs itself from the evening meal to breakfast, so that is a good time to take enzymes. Most cancer clinics in Mexico and Germany use Wobenzyme pancreatic enzymes. Usually they recommend taking a couple between each meal and a couple at bedtime. I think that Corotec enzyme is slightly better than the Wobenzyme. Contact for Carotec is www.carotec.com or call 1-800-522-4279.

    Cancer takes protein out of the blood and uses the protein to create a thick membrane around the cancer mass. This hides the cancer from the body's immune system and blood vessels form in the protein membrane to furnish glucose for the cancer mass. Healthy tissue uses an oxidation process to provide energy. Cancer cells use a very inefficient fermentation process that produces lactic acid to produce energy. Cancer is 15 times more efficient than healthy tissue in removing glucose from blood. That is why people waste away when they have cancer. The body is cannibalizing itself to produce nutrients for the body, but the cancer is more efficient than healthy tissue in removing the glucose from the blood. Pancreatic enzymes digest proteins and attack the protein membrane and allow the immune system to identify cancer as a foreign invader. To be effective, enzymes must be taken between meals, so they go into the blood. If protein enzymes are taken at mealtime they react with the food and don't get in the blood where they are needed. The Willard Water keeps the pH of the blood at 7.35. Cancer thrives in an acid environment and most alternative treatments keep the pH on the alkali side.

    If you have cancer it means that your body is malfunctioning. You can either correct the malfunction or you can take radiation and chemo, both highly toxic, that not only kill the cancer but also damage healthy cells. I believe nearly all cancer can be effectively reversed and eliminated but it takes a total commitment. Cook with olive oil. Eat raw or lightly cooked vegetables. Make a smoothy out of fruit and vegetables each morning in a high-speed blender that breaks down cell walls and frees the nutrients and enzymes. Eliminate red meat and carbonated beverages because they make your body acidic. Eliminate sugar and simple carbohydrates because they turn to glucose and that's what cancer feeds on.

    There are two books I highly recommend: “Fear Cancer No More” by Mauris Emeka. You can buy it at the Uptown Nutrition store in Port Townsend,Washington or Google www.cancernomore.com. Also “Outsmart Your Cancer” by Tanya Harder Pierce. It can be purchased on the internet. E Mail me at porttownsendthinktank@gmail.com. Also, you can order Vibe at Eniva. Get the original Vibe. You can modify the protocol. If you can't digest cottage cheese, increase the lecithin or take an enzyme that will allow you to digest cottage cheese. There is also lactose-free cottage cheese. “Fear Cancer No More” recommends eating 20 to 25 apricot kernels per day for the laetrile. Discuss everything with your healthcare provider. Read everything you can on cancer and understand how it works. Cancer just means that your body is malfunctioning and sending you a message that you need to change. Phase in the protocol over a week or two. If something causes digestive problems, make adjustments. All of the recent studies I have seen have said that antioxidants and nutrition support make chemo and radiation more effective and lessen the harmful effects. Talk to your healthcare provider. There are other effective alternative treatments.

    Read “Outsmart Your Cancer.” In Port Townsend we have several good medical doctors that practice Integrative Medicine. Integrative Medicine is using both conventional and alternative medicine. We also have at least three very good naturopathic doctors. They have gone through medical school and then on to study natural medicine. One naturopath owns the Uptown Nutrition store on Lawrence St and the other two have a clinic called Origins Natural Medicine at 213 Decatur St., phone 360-385-5375. They also sell high quality supplements. There are no miracle cures for cancer and no protocol works on every cancer. That is why you have to read everything you can on conventional and alternative treatments and determine what is best for you. Plan on a slow steady recovery.

    Supplement Program to Improve Immune System and Repair Cellular Damage - Part II

    Cancer in the United States is a 150-billion-dollar business. An estimated 11 billion dollars is spent each year on cancer treatment drugs. Unfortunately, drug companies are not interested in finding a cure that would put them out of business. They are interested in finding a drug they can patent and charge 5,000 to 10,000 dollars per month from desperate people. The Protocol works because it was designed to operate on a cellular level to repair damaged cells and return them to a functioning condition. While most cancer protocols try to kill cancer cells, this Protocol attempts to repair the cellular damage that made cancer possible. I am a journalist, so I am making the information available as a public service. If you have a medical problem, seek advice from a healthcare professional. If you use the protocol, let me know how it worked.

    Budwig Cancer Diet:

    Dr Budwig passed away at the age of 95 in the year 2003. She has two PhD degrees, one in chemistry and the other in physics. She was nominated for the Nobel Prize in medicine seven times. In 1952 she was the German central government's senior expert on fats and edible oils. Dr Budwig determined by her research that highly processed unsaturated fats have lost their ability to combine with proteins and become water soluble. For the cells to function properly they must have electron-rich, highly-unsaturated fats in the outer cell membrane. Without the proper unsaturated fats the electron charge between the cell membrane and the nucleus is disrupted. The cooking oil that you buy in the food store has been stabilized at a high temperature in order for it to have a long shelf life and is essentially dead.

    Dr Budwig further determined that she could repair the outer cell membrane by giving the cancer patient a mixture of flaxseed oil and cottage cheese. The cottage cheese is a rich source of protein and sulfur, which forms an emulsion with the flaxseed oil; it then can be used by the body to repair the outer cell membrane. We also added a rounded teaspoon of lecithin for every tablespoon of flaxseed oil because it is a good emulsifying agent and contains beneficial phosphorus compounds. Dr. Budwig claimed her success rate with treating cancer patients was 90%. A large portion of her patients were terminal and had failed to respond to conventional treatment. The Protocol is an updated version of the Budwig Cancer Protocol. The Willard Water keeps the body pH at the proper level and decreases the surface tension of water and allows nutrients to pass through cell walls more easily. Co-enzyme Q10 is the basic enzyme that allows cells to turn glucose into energy.

    Vibe made by Eniva:

    Vibe, made by Eniva corporation, is a liquid nutritional supplement that comes in a 32-ounce bottle and contains just about every vitamin, mineral, and extract the human body needs. Eniva recommends one ounce per day for normal health maintenance, one ounce equals two tablespoons. Eniva has said that you can use up to three ounces per day of Vibe. I have been using Vibe for a number of years. The ingredients in Vibe have a very small molecular diameter so they can easily pass through the walls of the digestive system into the blood. Because of the small molecular diameter, the ingredients in Vibe are able to furnish nutritional support at the cellular level. The ability of Vibe to function on a cellular level makes Vibe an important ingredient in the protocol. Don't take everything the first day. Phase in the Protocol over a week or so. If you can't digest cottage cheese, get some enzymes at the local health store to digest milk products. You can also buy lactose free cottage cheese. The protocol is flexible so modify it to fit your situation. You need to become an expert on cancer.

    Willard Water:

    Bacteria in the soil produce organic compounds in food that stimulate bacteria in the intestines, decrease surface tension in water, and make it easier for vitamins, minerals, and glucose to pass through the cells outer membrane so they can be used by the cell. The organic compounds also keep the pH of the blood and lymph at 7.35 where it should be. Cancer produces energy by a fermentation process and one of the metabolic products is lactic acid. As a result, the blood gets more and more acidic as the cancer progresses. Most alternative cancer protocols keep the body chemistry alkaline. Unfortunately, commercial fertilizer, herbicides, and pesticides kill the bacteria in the soil, so there is only 5-10 % of bacteria remaining compared to what an organic farm would have. Willard Water is made from lignite coal that was produced by bacteria in an anaerobic environment. The organic compounds produced by the bacteria in the lignite are concentrated and sold as Willard Water.

    About 60 miles south of Portland, Oregon is a 4-foot-thick seam of lignite coal that was made from sea weed. In the spring, a trickle of brown water seeps out from the bottom of the coal seam. The grass along the little stream grows six feet tall. The Indians used the brown water as a tonic and so did the settlers in the area. Dr. Leonard Thompson studied the brown water and realized its significance. He was a member of the National Academy of Science until his death three years ago at the age of 91. He had multiple PhD degrees and a worldwide reputation in several areas of research. He was a good friend and I visited him in Oregon every few months.

    Dr. Willard, who developed Willard Water, was a chemistry professor at the South Dakota School of Mines in Rapid City, S.D. He learned of the research done by Dr. Thompson and found a source of lignite coal suitable for extracting the organic compounds now found in Willard Water. Another source of information on soil micronutrients is Dr. David Jubb. He is a college professor in California and was a speaker at our local Grange and is an expert on micronutrients found in soil. The information I have is from conversations with Dr. Thompson and Dr. Jubb. The main reason that organic vegetables are more nutritious is the high level of bacteria and other organisms in the soil. It is known that organisms in the soil produce micronutrients and that chemical fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides sharply decrease the organisms in the soil and therefore the micronutrients they produce. Willard Water is important and inexpensive. Put 3 tablespoons of Willard Water dark concentrate in a gallon of water and drink at least 36 ounces of the mixture each day. Do not use chlorinated water.

    Ashwagandha and curcumin:

    Both of these organic extracts have anti-inflamitory characteristics and anti-cancer properties. There is a lot of information on the internet, so I am not going to discuss them in detail. The concentration of active ingredients varies, so use as directed on the bottle.

    Co-enzyme Q10:

    Co-enzyme Q10 is the basic enzyme that allows the body to turn glucose into energy. The heart uses 10 times more than the rest of the body for each unit of weight. Because the protocol is attempting to repair damaged cells, Co-enzyme Q10 is important.

    The protocol is designed to repair damaged cells; especially, the outer cell membrane. To beat cancer requires a total commitment as well as life style and eating changes. Do not eat red meat or drink carbonated beverages because they make the body chemistry acidic. Eat raw or lightly cooked vegetables. Each morning make a smoothy with a high-speed blender that breaks the fruit and vegetables down to a cellular level and frees the nutrients and enzymes. To be able to absorb fat soluble vitamins you need a little oil in the smoothy. A little olive oil or flaxseed oil or half an avocado will do. Use fruit and vegetables with a high nutritional density in the smoothy like blueberries, carrots, and spinach. Do not eat sugar or simple carbohydrates because they produce glucose that feeds the cancer. Keep a positive attitude and keep your family and friends informed. When you win your battle with cancer, you will be everyone's hero. Stress, fear, and anger have to be kept under control. Try meditation, prayer, support groups, and yoga, etc. Remember, cancer means that your body is malfunctioning and you have to correct the malfunction.

    Get an oncologist that you can work with or a family doctor or a naturopathic doctor. There are still a few oncologists who believe that unless your hair falls out and you look like the walking dead the chemo isn't working. Recent studies have shown that nutritional support and supplements make chemo and radiation more effective and help rebuild the body's immune system. I can't stress this enough: if you find a lump or have an unexplained pain or are passing blood, see a healthcare professional immediately. I believe in integrative medicine, which is taking the best from conventional and alternative medicines.

    You can modify the protocol to meet you own situation. The Budwig diet recommends 2 tablespoons of cold pressed flaxseed oil in a quarter-cup of cottage cheese twice a day and using a hand held electric mixer to mix it to a creamy texture. If you eat a lot of roughage you can probably tolerate 4 tablespoons of flaxseed oil a day. Vibe can be increased to 4 ounces per day for up to a month. “Fear Cancer no More” recommends eating 20-25 apricot kernels per day for the laetrile. A good probiotic will help keep your digestive system functioning properly. You must take responsibility for your own health.

    Some good references are: “Fear Cancer No More” by Mauris Emeka. You can buy it at the Uptown Nutrition store in Port Townsend, Washington or buy it on line at www.cancernomore.com. Another good book and alternative treatment is: “Outsmart Your Cancer” by Tanya Harder Pierce. It can be purchased on line. There is a vast amount of information on the internet and some websites like www.cancertutor.com are good. For Willard Water dark concentrate call 1-800-447-4793. I have found Swanson a low cost mail order company with quality products: www.swanson.com or 1-800-437-4148. Carotec is good: www.carotec.com or call 1-800-522-4279. Go to Eniva, the company that sells Vibe.

    My E-Mail address is porttownsendthinktank@gmail.com. Leave a message on my home phone: 360-385-4876. Buy cold pressed refrigerated flaxseed oil and keep it refrigerated. Buy it locally. I am a journalist, so I can tell you what I know and what other people have done. Ask a healthcare professional for medical advice. We have had good results with the above protocol, but nothing works 100% of the time. Read the two books I recommended and plan on a slow but steady recovery. Good luck. Keep in touch.



    Updating the Supplement Program to Repair Cellular Damage:

    The nutritional support program is quite flexible. If you don't like cottage cheese, you can use hemp protein, yogurt, whey protein, or even powdered milk. The important thing to realize is that the cold pressed flax seed oil contains 70% essential oils that the body cannot manufacture and therefore needs to get the essential oils from food. The essential oils combine with proteins and are used to repair damaged cells. The lecithin is important also, it is a good emulsifying agent and contains phosphorus, which is needed by the brain and cell membranes. If you don't like flax seed oil, you can eat some walnuts each day; they're rich in essential oils the body needs. Dr. Budwig in the Budwig cancer diet used low fat cottage cheese and I believe it to be superior to 4% cottage cheese.

    There are good fats and bad fats. The good fats are cold pressed flax seed oil, olive oil, coconut oil, and butter. The bad fats are commercial cooking oil, hydrogenated oils, trans-fats, and oils used in fast food and convenient foods. Every farm boy knows that you need to bait a mouse trap with butter or peanut butter to catch a mouse. The mouse will not eat margarine. Now if a mouse or rat won't eat margarine, it can't have much food value. Commercial fats and oils are stabilized so they won't go rancid and they can sit on a shelf for months with no change. The body needs poly unsaturated fats with a rich cloud of electrons that reacts readily with oxygen and proteins. Each person needs at least two tablespoons of essential oils each day. Essential oils are oils that the body can't manufacture and needs to get from food. These are omega-3 and DHA and EPA. A good source of omega-3 is cold pressed flax seed oil and a source of DHA and EPA is fish oil. The Budwig cancer diet works because the flax seed oils are 70% essential oils and they combine with the proteins and sulfur in the low fat cottage cheese to form a water soluble emulsion that the body can use to repair cell membranes and mitochondria.

    Each cell is a little battery. The outer cell membrane has a negative charge and the mitochondria has a positive charge. Without the essential oils the battery quits working properly and bad things happen. The bad fats are stored in your body as fat because the body can't use them and doesn't know what else to do with the bad fats. Diets fail because the body craves essential oils and amino acids that the body can only get from food. Fast foods and junk food doesn't contain essential oils so the body sends hunger signals to keep eating. Cook with olive oil or coconut oils and eat only good fats and your diet will succeed. Read the books of Dr Daniel Amen on nutrition.

    The Vibe made by Eniva corporation provides nutrition on a cellular level and is very important, as is the Willard Water. Diet is extremely important. Read the book “'Fear Cancer No More” for diet. Raw fruits and raw or lightly-cooked vegetables are best. No red meat, artificial sweeteners, or sodas, they cause the blood and lymph to become acidic. It is very important to eliminate sugar and simple starches because cancer feeds on glucose. To fight any chronic condition you have to make a total commitment and take responsibility for your health. The internet is a good source of information. You need to look up the side effects of any drugs you take. Also Google the name of the drug and lawsuits. Google 'Budwig Cancer Diet'; there's a lot of valuable information on basic nutrition on their site. She makes the claim that cancer and a lot of other diseases are metabolic in nature and in most cases can be corrected. It may seem strange but 70% of your immune system is from your intestines and 30% is from your liver. Try not to eat anything from dinner to breakfast. Night time is when the body repairs damage. Endorphins are produced from 1 to 4 AM in the morning. Each person has about 3 pounds of bacteria in them and the bacteria break down food to release nutrients and produce chemicals the body needs. That's why a good probiotic is helpful.

    The book “Fear Cancer No More” recommends eating 20 to 25 apricot kernels each day because they contain laetrile. You can find apricot kernels on the internet under bitter almonds. I know two people in Jefferson County that are keeping their stage 4 prostate cancer under control using diet and eating 25 apricot kernels each day.

    In Europe over 10 million people take low dose naltrexone for autoimmune diseases and cancer. It boosts the immune system 300%. It absolutely must be taken at night before you go to bed. The L.D. N. home page says that in Europe it has put 60% of the M.S. patients in remission. The point I am making is that there are a lot of options and the protocol is a good nutritional base and other options can be added to it. Read the references that I list and find a healthcare provider you can work with. Remember that oncologists that belong to the American Medical Association can not recommend or even discuss treatments unless they are approved by the A. M.A.

    I recently attended a 2-hour discussion by Dr. Sandra Smith-Poling on reversing Alzheimers disease. Basically, she said that even a cognitive deficit of 40 or 50% could be reversed in six months using the proper foods and protocol. The research was done at UCLA in California. It is basically a version of the Budwig Cancer Diet. She said that people should take at least nine grams of fish oil high in DHA and EPA per day in addition to the cold pressed flax seed oil because the human body only converts about 4% of the flax seed oil to EPA and DHA. She also said that there are eight types of vitamin E and the most common is alpha, but only vitamin E with anti-cancer properties is the gamma. Fortunately, all types are sold by Swanson. I recommend the vitamin E with all types of vitamin E.

    Cancer and other conditions take over the body chemistry, so it's important to start slow and over a week or two build up as your tolerance increases. A good place to start is a smoothy with berries, nuts, celery, carrots, spinach and other foods with high density nutrienats. Making a smoothy with a high speed blender to break down cell walls will free the enzymes; the smoothy will deteriorate rapidly because the enzymes will start reacting with the smoothy. The Nutra Bullet and the Ninja are both high-speed blenders that can be purchased for under a hundred dollars. Add some protein powder, a couple of tablespoons of cold pressed flax seed oil, and a rounded teaspoon of lecithin. Drink it within a couple of hours. Continue drinking the smoothy each day, adding more nutrition protocol gradually.

    After starting the protocol to repair cellular damage, the retired nurse with the liver cancer had her first Cat Scan in three months; the cancer spots on her liver had decreased by 50%. Recently, seven months after she started the protocol, she had a second scan; the Virginia Mason Hospital told her to come back in a year. They informed her she still had a little cancer, but they didn't think it would cause a problem.

    Her routine included: dine at 6 p.m., retire at 9 p.m., breakfast at 8 a.m. Just before going to bed, she'd take three or four papaya capsules. The papaya capsules contain enzymes that dissolve proteins. Cancer cells take protein out of the blood and create a membrane around each cancer cell. This hides the cancer cell and allows blood vessels to grow in the protein membrane. It is important to take an enzyme to dissolve proteins. It should be taken between meals or just before you go to bed. If you eat it at mealtime, it gets used up digesting the food instead of reacting with the cancer. Exercise stimulates the immune system and helps prevent depression. Stress should be avoided if possible.

    The most important thing is to take responsibility for your health and make a total commitment to good health. Support groups help and so does prayer and meditation.


    We also need to discuss alternative treatments. If I was told by a Doctor that I had less than a month to live, I would go to www.cancertutor.com and use their cesium chloride protocol. Cesium has almost the same chemical properties as potassium and cancer cells take in both potassium and cesium. The cancer cells can not get rid of the cesium; it builds up and causes the cancer cells to become strongly alkaline. Their Ph can reach as high as 8.4 which causes them to die. The cesium does not affect non-cancerous cells. The potassium level in the patient's blood must be monitored carefully because the protocol can cause a dangerous imbalance. The second problem is that the cesium can kill so many cancer cells that the body can't get rid of the dead cells and a serious medical problem develops. If you use this protocol you need someone from Cancer Tutor to work with you. This is especially important if you have brain cancer.

    I have two friends with prostate cancer who are keeping it in check using diet and eating 25 apricot kernels per day for the laetrile. It can be purchased over the internet under the name bitter almonds. The book Fear Cancer No More discusses diet and using apricot kernels to control cancer. The book Outsmart Your Cancer discusses a number of alternative treatments. If you decide on conventional treatment, the protocol to repair cell damage is especially important. Unfortunately, some doctors believe that if your hair doesn't fall out and you don't look like the walking dead the chemo isn't effective. Low dose naltrexone can be used to boost your immune system 300%. It absolutely must be taken late at night because your body produces endorphins between 1 and 4 AM. It also can not be used if you have taken an opioid pain killer in the last 2 weeks. If you have, it will make you sick as it was originally developed to treat opioid addiction.

    Google low dose naltrexone home page to find out about L.D.N.. There are also mushroom extracts that will boost your immune system; there are several in the Swanson catalog. Taking an enzyme to dissolve the protein membrane around cancer cells is important. Swanson sells papaya enzymes at low cost; that is what the liver cancer patient used. They must be taken between meals and or when you go to bed so they will get in the blood and dissolve the protein membrane around cancer cells. You must become an expert on cancer. Read the books I recommend and go on the internet.


    Warning to people taking blood thinners and anti-clot medication

    If you take a blood thinner, you need to check with your healthcare provider and get your blood checked often. Vitamin E and K2 will thin your blood slightly. All of the enzymes that dissolve proteins will thin the blood slightly. Even fish oil and flax seed oil can affect your blood, so be careful. Check with your healthcare provider and make changes slowly. The protocol should be safe for people not on blood thinners. There are exceptions. If you are allergic to sulfur, don't take the M.S.M., and if you are allergic to iodine, don't take the Vibe, it has a little iodine in it. Do your own research and become an expert. Low-dose naltrexone will boost your immune system 300%, but it can not be used if you are taking an opium-based pain killer. It also must be taken late at night because your endorphins are produced between one and four in the morning. You can not take a cancer alternative treatment called carnavora if you are using hypothermia, heat therapy, because it thins your blood and you could die. There are mushroom extracts that appear safe that boost the immune system. Play it safe and talk to your medical provider or pharmacist if you have questions and make changes slowly. Use the internet to research products. Always check side effects and lawsuits.

    What Causes Cancer?

    It is taught in medical schools that cancer is caused by DNA damage. Actually, cancer is a metabolic dysfunction. The biggest cause of cancer is the lack of essential oils in the US diet. Every cell in your body needs the essential oils lenolenic fatty acid, lenoleic fatty acid, and EPA and DHA. They are needed for the outer cell membrane and cell division. Cancer is actually a survival strategy for when the mitochondria quit producing energy. The cytoplasm can produce energy by fermentation but this is an inefficient process and doesn't require oxygen. Part of the cancer cell's survival strategy is rapid cell division, random mutations, and a protein membrane around the cell to hide it from the immune system. The cancer creates the mutations as part of its survival strategy not the other way around.

    Reversing Alzheimer's Disease

    Recently, at the local Unitarian Church, a two-hour discussion was given by a local medical doctor, Sandra Smith Poling, on reversing Alzheimer's disease. Recent research done by UCLA has shown that even people with a 40 or 50% cognitive deficit can be returned to normal in six months and remain in the normal range of cognitive performance. The UCLA studies used diet and fish oil. It is their belief that Alzheimer's is a metabolic problem that can be reversed. Following are the links to the studies:


    Brain Health | Eat Fat, Get Thin


    Dr. Daniel Amen has appeared a number of times on Public Television and has written a number of books about diet and restoring brain function with respect to Alzheimer's disease and other mental problems. I highly recommend his books. Google him on the internet and buy a couple of his books; they are best sellers and not expensive.

    In the 2007 version of the journal Well Being, a woman by the name of Marilyn Knox wrote a article how she reversed her mothers Alzheimer's using food and vitamins. Her mother's speech was garbled and she'd lost control of her bodily functions. In three months her mother was back to normal. She fed her mother fruits, vegetables, and nuts that were run through a blender. By doing so, the cell walls are broken down, freeing all of the nutrients and enzymes. She also gave her mother supplements, including around four ounces of colloidal minerals in an aloe vera base, 25,000 units of beta carotene, and 1200 units of vitamin E. Also, she gave her mother up to 10,000 units of vitamin C taken gradually over the day. She used alpha vitamin E. Evidence indicates that gamma is better or a mixture of all 8 types of vitamin E. I would suggest two or three ounces of Vibe nutritional supplement taken with a glass of water twice a day with half taken each time. Several glasses of Willard Water should be taken over the course of the day as well. Put two tablespoons of Willard Water concentrate in a gallon of pure water. It lasts for a long time and doesn't need refrigeration. Take an ounce of Georges Aloe Vera extract twice a day. I would also take 6000 unites of vitamin D3, 50 mg. of zinc, and 400 mg of Co enzyme Q10. Marilyn Knox took her mother off all medications. The problem is that prescription medications treat symptoms and do not correct the underlying problem.

    I am a journalist and not a doctor so I can only report what I have read or heard. I cannot and do not give medical advice. Find a health care professional that you can work with. Dr. Daniel Amen is a good source of information as well as the UCLA study. The basic problem is that the outer cell membrane and the mitochondria need to be repaired. Each cell is a little battery. The outer cell has a negative charge and the mitochondria has a positive charge. Commercial cooking oils have been stabilized, so they can sit on the shelf for months. They are of no use to the body and are stored as fat. Cell membranes need a polyunsaturated fat with a rich cloud of electrons that readily combines with oxygen and proteins to form cell membranes and to facilitate cell division. Each person needs at least one ounce of essential oil each day. The doctor who gave the discussion on reversing Alzheimer's recommended nine grams of good quality fish oil per day for the essential oils EPA and DHA.

    I Need Your Help:
    I am constantly meeting people who have spent their life savings and sold their property trying to save the life of a family member with cancer. When the money was gone, they were told, “ There is nothing more we can do for you.” I live on a fixed income, but I still help people all I can. Any donations to my Pay Pal account would be appreciated and spent helping people. Thanks.

    Testimonials

    "This is a statement concerning my support for the Fritz Cancer Protocol.

    "In 2006 I was on my second bout with Cancer, having had a mastectomy 12 years previously.

    "By chance my husband and I met and became friends with Fritz. We began taking Eniva Vibe and Willard Water in addition to our supplements.

    "All went well until the Spring of 2015 when the cancer again made it's appearance - I had several lesions on my liver. My oncologist ordered a medication to slow my estrogen, and of course I was in contact with Fritz. He advised me of further developments in his research which resulted in the "Fritz Cancer Protocol", so in addition to the prescription I added most of the things recommended in the protocol.

    "After 3 months there has been a significant improvement in the lesion. I am now continuing both with the prescription and Fritz' protocol, and I'm looking forward to complete remission."

    "My name in Ken West; I am 76 years old and and a Viet Nam Vet. In 2009 I had an Aortic valve replaced by the VA and they proceeded to give me staph infection. For the next 2 years I suffered and almost died as the VA was unable to control the staph. I had THREE open chest surgeries and numerous topical surgeries and was put on massive doses of antibiotics which did not work. I was finally allowed to take "VIBE". The VA, due to their regulations, would not allow me to take Vibe until they finally contacted the surgeon who had replaced the valve and he highly recommended it. In a short time the staph came under control and I was released from the hospital where I had spent almost a year. I started out weighing 185 pounds and late in my treatment I was losing 2 pounds a day due to the staph eating me alive and went down to 128 pounds. I owe my Life to Vibe, and not the massive antibiotics which were destroying my immune system, and I am not ashamed to say so. It certainly helped me and if you have a serious medical condition no matter what it is, I would absolutely read the Protocol and give it a try."

    Ken's Heart Improvement

    Ken developed a staph infection after open heart surgery. He was in and out of the VA Hospital in Seattle for 2 years fighting the infection. At one point he was down to 128 pounds and losing 2 pounds per day. He was being eaten alive by the infection. Out of desperation, I sent him a 32-ounce bottle of Vibe nutritional supplement made by Eniva. The doctor at the VA called the surgeon to see if he should let Ken have the Vibe. He said, “Oh for Gods sake, give it to him. I use it myself. It will probably help him more than anything.” Ken's medical condition improved and the staff infection went way. A year after Ken left the hospital, his heart ejection-fraction was only 15 to 20 percent. It's been a long slow battle but we now have his heart ejection fraction up to 30% to 35%. The nurse in the cardiac unit of Ken's hospital said that in the last 10 years Ken is the only person whose heart function had significantly improved; only one other person showed a slight improvement. The average life expectancy of a person with chronic heart failure is 5 years.

    Heart attacks are the leading cause of death in the US. Billions of dollars are spent each year on new drugs and research. We succeeded with 200-dollars-a-month supplements because our goal was to improve Ken's heart, while the drug company's was to find a drug they could patent and make money on. We will be writing a full report on what we used; this is research anyone can benefit from.

    The next step is to send Ken to Thailand for stem-cell treatment. The hospital there has been giving stem-cell treatments for 15 years and they say they can improve Ken's heart function by another 20%. Unfortunately, it will cost 30,000 dollars for the treatment and a month in Thailand.

    We have an account with 'Go Fund Me.' It's web address is: gofundme.com/kenwest. Any financial help you can give will be appreciated. If everyone with a heart problem made a small donation we would have the money in a short time.

    Toothaches, Strokes, and Traumatic Brain Injury

    In August 1991 Discover Magazine published an article with the title “Cheating Brain Death” that discussed dextromethorphan and how it worked. At about the same time Creighton University reported on the chemical similarity between dental pulp tissue [P Protein Factor] and brain tissue.

    My dental practice was in Alaska, and I occasionally had patients that needed to fly in from remote villages with sensitive teeth. Bouncing around in a small plane with a painful tooth can be a very uncomfortable experience. Many times the patient did not have access to prescription pain medication. As a last resort I would tell them to take Tylenol, also take a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory such as Advil or Asperin, and a cough suppressant with dextromethorphan in it at whatever dose is recommended on the bottle, but do not exceed 10 mg per day. For instance Musinex has 60 mg of DM in it so you would only use one sixth of a tablet.

    The dextromethorphan works as a calcium reverser, shunting calcium atoms out of injured nerves, thus reducing the pulpal or inner cranial pressure. This allows the blood supply to flow again which allows the anti-inflammatory and or the anti-histamine to also work, further reducing swelling in the tooth or brain.

    I used the cough medications with dextromethorphan for years in my dental practice for toothaches with remarkable success and no side effects until I retired in the late 90's. Since then I have seen it used effectively on five stroke cases. The hospitals described their stroke patients as,” miracle patients,” or the hospital said that they, “dodged the bullet.”

    The dosage is whatever is recommended on the cough suppressant label but do not exceed 10 mg per day of DM. I have seen remarkable recoveries from strokes with as little as 5 mg of DM per day for 1 or 2 days. Nyquil and Dayquil contain 10 mg per dose while Hold has only 5 mg per lozenge. Hold is no longer available. Other medications with DM can be used. Use only 5 or 10 mg per day for 3 to 5 days for strokes. There appears to be a narrow window for DM in the range of 5 to 10 mg of DM per day that works, but the optimum dosage will vary depending on the weight, age, and individual. In this case more is not better. The DM treatment appears to be effective if taken in the first 48 hours. At about 48 hours the neurons swell and rupture causing permanent damage. In the case of head injury, brain damage starts immediately so time is very critical. Another advantage of using a very low dose of DM is that it is unlikely to interfere with other medications.

    Preventing Brain Cell Death from Strokes and Head Injuries

    When a blood clot cuts off circulation to a portion of the brain, the tissue doesn't die immediately because capillaries continue to supply the tissue with small amounts of oxygen and nutrients. The body always has a redundancy built into it. In the survival mode, brain tissue is very vulnerable. Brain tissue in the affected area can take in small amounts of oxygen and nutrients but the tissue can not get rid of metabolic waste or drug residue. About the end of the second day the neurotransmitter glutamate sucks in fluid to dilute the metabolic waste. The cells swell and rupture the cell walls and permanent damage is done. Calcium in the cells regulates the glutamate. It has been found that the common drug in cold medicine, dextromethorphan, removes calcium from brain tissue and prevents swelling. When blood flow is restored, the brain tissue can resume normal functions with minimal damage.

    In August 1991 an article called “Cheating Brain Death” appeared in the Discover magazine which discussed using the drug dextromethorphan, see attached article, to prevent brain damage from strokes or head injuries. A hospital in Salt Lake City has a protocol using DM and a stroke association has a protocol using DM Dextromethorphan is widely used in Canada to prevent brain damage from a stroke or head injury. It works best when taken in very low doses. The preferred dose is 5 to 10 mg. taken once a day for 3 to 5 days. For a stroke, DM is effective if taken in the first 48 hours after a stroke, but the sooner the better. For a head injury, DM need to be taken as soon as possible because the swelling starts immediately. Only small doses work because the brain cells are very vulnerable and can't get rid of metabolic waste or drug residue. Larger doses of DM have not proven effective. Taken in very low doses DM should not interfere with the use of anti-coagulants used to restore blood circulation. Dextromethorphan has been approved by the FDA for cold medicine and for extended use. The maximum dosage is 120 mg per day but 5 or 10 mg of DM seems to work best. Nearly every stroke patient has throat problems like swallowing and talking. If an ER doctor is concerned about using DM for a use not approved by the FDA, the ER Doctor can list throat swelling, 5 mg of DM for 3 to 5 days. The results are usually spectacular. The first rule of medicine is do no harm.

    Dextromethorphan has its limitations. DM will not prevent a stroke. It does not thin the blood or dissolve a blood clot. If the outer cell membrane of the neurons rupture, permanent damage is done and can not be repaired. All DM does is prevent the brain tissue from swelling and rupturing the outer cell wall of the neurons if taken within the appropriate time.

    In the case of a concussion or head injury the situation is more complex. The brain slams into the skull and often rebounds causing a bruise on the opposite side of the brain. There is also a twisting and stretching that damages connections in the brain. DM should be effective in preventing further damage but it is important to start treatment as soon as possible.

    A retired dentist from Alaska, Dr. Eichman, first told me of the ability of DM to prevent brain damage from a stroke over 10 years ago. I have told a large number of people about the DM protocol. An 85-year-old woman who is a member of our North Olympic Fruit Growers Club had a major stroke. She was in excellent health and had a large garden and fruit orchards which she took care of. On a Sunday afternoon she had some friends over to her home when she started slurring her speech and a hand started to loose its feeling. She knew she was having a stroke so she took a couple of Hold lozenges which each had 5 mg of DM in them and had her friends take her to the Jefferson County Hospital. They gave the patient, who I will call L.T., an MRI to determine where the stroke was. The MRI showed no soft tissue damage as would be expected. One arm and leg on her right side was limp and she couldn't speak and could barely swallow so she was obviously having a stroke. The Jefferson County Hospital decided to airlift L.T. over to Swedish Hospital in Seattle. Swedish Hospital in Seattle did an MRI and found the blood clot, but the MRI showed no soft tissue damage which they thought was unusual. The stroke patient, L.T., had her daughter give her a tablespoon full of cough medication with DM in it for six days. In two weeks L.T. was in intensive therapy and in three weeks she was home. Her speech, mind, and eyes were fine. Her balance was slightly affected, so that when she went outside she had to use a cane. Her right hand was slightly weaker, so if she lifted a glass with her right hand she had to put her left hand under it. She continued to lead a normal life and take care of her orchard and garden.

    About two years later L.T. had a small stroke that was diagnosed by the doctor as vertigo, so no DM was given. When they finally decided that it was a stroke it was too late to use the DM protocol. She never recovered from the stroke and is in assisted living and has to use a walker. I told L.T. that there is no downside to the DM protocol. If you have the slightest indication you are having a stroke take 5 mg of DM for three days to protect yourself. The above experience is pretty typical of people that have used the DM protocol within the appropriate time frame. We believe that the DM prevented the damage to the brain tissue and that is why the MRI didn't show any soft tissue damage.

    I was telling a woman from Vancouver British Columbia about the DM protocol and she interrupted me and said, “People in Canada know about DM. If you start slurring your speech you grab a bottle of cough medication with DM and take a couple of tablespoons and call 911. Don't people in the US know about DM?” I said no. She said why not? So I said that drug companies are out to make money and there is no interest in a miracle cure that only takes five dollars of readily available medication. I think another reason is that researchers thought that the proper dose of DM for strokes is the same as recommended for colds and when that didn't work they tried even higher dosages. Researchers didn't consider that there could be a lower dosage that was effective.

    Strokes are the fourth leading cause of death in the US and the leading cause of disability for people over 65 years old. Most people know that if they have a heart attack they should take an aspirin and call 911. People have to be programmed that if they have a stroke they need to take 10 mg of DM and call 911. The DM protocol is the greatest improvement in stroke treatment in 50 years and it needs to be used.

    The above article is for information only. I am a journalist not a doctor. If you have a medical problem, see the appropriate medical practitioner. If you use the above information please send an Email to The Port Townsend Think Tank so we can add to our knowledge. If you think you are having a stroke, call 911 immediately. Do not procrastinate.
