Keiko, female, age 72 At the end of Oct 2004 (11 months ago) Keiko was diagnosed in Japan with class 3 cervical cancer. At the recommendation of her doctors she underwent 28 rounds of radiation therapy. At the end of those treatments her doctors told her they had eradicated the cancer in her cervix. Keiko’s daughter, Felice, had a recommendation from her doctors here in Hawaii that Keiko should really have a PET scan in Japan to check and make sure it hadn’t spread anywhere else. It had indeed metastasized to every lymph node in her body.
Felice brought her mom to Hawaii in June of this year and the oncologists here said this was an extremely aggressive form of cancer. A CAT scan showed two more spots (on her lung and on her stomach) in addition to everything else. They would try 8 rounds of chemo therapy to put off what seemed imminent – but the prognosis was grim, they didn’t expect her to live even a year.
By the 5 th round of chemo therapy Keiko was so sick (nausea, vomiting and diarrhea) they decided to stop – that was three weeks ago. Instead they kept praying and kept using the natural supplements.
5 weeks ago a friend told Felice and her mom about NCD. Keiko took it for a week before she had to stop to accommodate the 5th round of her chemo schedule. This time she got so sick from the chemo she and her daughter decided to stop the treatment right in the middle of the round (3 weeks ago) and they continued with the NCD 15 drops 3X day starting the next day.
Three weeks later (Monday this week) Keiko had a follow up contrast dye CAT scan: When they walked in to her doctor’s office, he asked how she was feeling and what she’d been eating, and had a sort of perplexed look on his face. They didn’t know what to expect, but hoped and prayed there would be some positive news. Keiko didn’t just have a report that was good, it was beyond all expectations -- the doctor told Keiko and Felice there was not one single sign of cancer anywhere in her body. Not in any of the lymph nodes, not on her lung or stomach. Stunned, Keiko’s daughter even asked the Doc, “Are you sure? Who actually read the CAT scan?” and he reassured her it was definitely the expert, the radiologist, not just him! He was amazed too and said that less than 20% of his patients ever have such a thing happen, that even if there was great improvement they usually see some residual cancer still in the body but there was nothing here. Nothing. And the nurses were crying with emotion when they spoke with Felice and Keiko. As you might expect, he asked her what she was doing. Felice told him and the nurses to check out the Waiora website!
Keiko will have another CAT scan in three months to confirm she is truly out of the woods and meantime she will be taking her NCD every day!

My name is John Huber. I was told I had cancer in June 1997. The doctor told me he would take out my prostate and do radiation therapy. At that time I decided not to do this therapy.
I changed doctors and started eating healthy foods and taking a lot of vitamins.
I met Barbara Miller several years ago. We tried many different vitamins but none lowered my PSA and cancer. Two weeks ago I got a call to come to a Waiora meeting. When they talked about Natural Cellular Defense I got excited. I bought a bottle that Wednesday night and took one dose. I took the product for the next four days. On Monday I had a fasting blood test. On Tuesday my doctor called with the results. My PSA went from 11.4 down to 4.6, My cholesterol went from 216 to 181 and my sugar went from 190 to 116. My doctor told me he has to do these results again next month to confirm them. We are very happy with Natural Cellular Defense. Thank You Sincerely , John Huber

There was a tremendous testimony from a Hispanic man named Nikko today. Jim and Linda Crane had me overnight a bottle of NCD about 12 days ago to Kansas City ; the day they signed into Waiora.
Nikko was in the final stages of a serious pancreatic ailment. He presented to the physician the bottle I had overnighted to the Cranes and the doc said go ahead, it can't hurt all you are taking at this point is morphine. So twelve days ago, he started on the product, he is feeling much better and the color is coming back to his dark skin. In fact, Nikko went to see his physician today and the doc can't believe what he is seeing. Nikko has no sign of a problem with the pancreas area at all. He is so excited about his news and as you can imagine for the Natural Cellular Defense.

Last January (2005) my father-in-law had another surgery for bladder cancer. In this, and the previous surgeries, tumors were found and treated. Since last January he has worn a catheter bag to collect his urine.
A few months ago his catheter bag began to have blood in it. He continued to pass more and more blood, accompanied by a foul odor.
After testing his urine and blood, his doctor told him the cancer was back. The doctor explained that radiation treatments would likely follow the surgery, and maybe chemotherapy after that. Surgery was scheduled for Friday Sept. 2nd.
On Saturday Aug. 20th we got some "NATURAL CELLULAR DEFENSE" to him.
In FOUR DAYS the bleeding STOPPED and the catheter bag remained clear of any blood.
After a week on NCD, he woke one morning and his catheter bag was full of a sticky ugly gunk, and had a terrible odor. The catheter bags and tubes could not be cleaned, and had to be discarded and replaced.
From that point on there has been NO blood or odor in his catheter bag.
Friday, September 2nd, Carl underwent surgery. His doctor was surprised to find NO Tumors in his bladder! He said he was just sure there would be tumors there. Carl has also experienced an increase in energy since taking the "NATURAL CELLULAR DEFENSE". Ron
On August 15th I shared the information on NCD (Natural Cellular Defense) with my dad. I knew he would want to give NCD to his wife, Delora, who went through a bout of Breast Cancer last year, 2004. Delora had one breast removed during her bout with cancer. She also went thru Radiation and Chemotherapy. Before the Cancer and now afterwards, her main health problem has been and still is Emphysema. Her constant companion has been an oxygen canister which she carries with her everywhere she goes.
After only 4 days of taking 6 to 9 NCD drops 3 x daily...Delora has been able to move around (walk) more and become a bit more active than before....and even leave the Oxygen bottle behind while she is doing so. She is excited about the improvement and looks forward to even better days now. Their shipment of 16 bottles of NCD will be arriving this week. Delora has a daughter who has Lupus. She plans to give her a few bottles to see if she shows an improvement. Craig O.

I had a friend in MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston , Texas with Leukemia and was coughing continuously from pneumonia. Some of you might know him by Jim Pirtle.
Last Thursday He started taking 15 drops three times a day of the Natural Cellular Defense product. The first day he completely stopped coughing. The Doctor said do not stop the drops. He left the Hospital today in Remission and is now an out patient. He will continue the drops faithfully. I thank my Savior for guiding the delivery by Donna with this product to Jim.

After hearing about the success of Natural Cellular Defense in regard to getting rid of warts, I decided to try it on a benign fibrous tumor called a histiocytoma which I have had on my leg for about 3 months. I used 1 drop daily on the tumor and within 10 days it was gone.
My dad has CLL Leukemia, Emphysema, and just recently diagnosed with Cancer in his throat. After 5 weeks of taking NCD, his Leukemia counts are much better. His oncologist was quite pleased and said he would be able to by-pass chemo for at least two months because of his improved blood counts. When Dad told him that he had been taking NCD, Dr. Johnson said he was familiar with the zeolite product and recommended for him to stay on it. The following week, Dad went to his throat doctor, and when the doctor looked in his throat with a scope, he could not believe what he saw. He said it looked so much better than when he observed it eight weeks before. Dad said his throat is no longer sore and feels much better. We believe that NCD is making a tremendous difference in Dad's health and very thankful.
My mom has started taking the product as well. She was also amazed on how the product has improved my dad's complexion as he has many skin cancer spots from overexposure to the sun as a farmer. We so appreciate you taking the time to share Waiora Natural Cellular Defense with us. It has been a huge difference in better quality living for my Dad and possibly his life! We will keep you updated on future improvements! Thanks again. Susie Wichita, Kansas
My daughter was diagnosed with colon cancer in January of 2004. After a nightmare of chemo, radiation and a severe staph infection she had finally arrived at a place where she was able to function but still not feeling well. Two weeks ago I was visiting her and noticed that she seemed to be in pain when she sat down. I was very concerned becaused I thought that indicated that the tumor was growing again. When I heard about Natural Cellular Defense I couldn't wait to get my hands on the product. One week ago today I took a bottle over to her. When I got over there she told me her legs were aching badly. I knew that wasn't a good sign. I told her to take 15 drops of NCD 3 times a day. After 5 treatments her legs felt better. Five days later the pain in her legs was gone. I believe NCD is an answer to prayer and it will certainly shake up the medical establishment in this country! Shirley Mulliken

I just wanted to thank you for bring the Natural Cellular Defense to the market. I was given a sample bottle after the Conference in Las Vegas and started using it immediately.
I have suffered from Shingles on and off for the last 33 years. About a month before the conference in Vegas I had a very painful and severe out break, I started taking the drops as recommended, three drops, three times a day. After doing this for three days all the symptoms that I was suffering from disappeared!!! I am so excited about the Natural Cellular Defense product, I can’t wait to receive my shipment and start using it regularly.
THANK YOU AGAIN, I am so proud to be a part of Waiora. Linda Bryant

My son Camron has been diagnosed as autistic since he was two year old and had stopped talking at that time. Camron is now 6 years old and he is an affectionate, smart, playful boy. However, he continued to have problems communicating, and overall interacting with others. The school has been working with him and we had made some progress. Camron had difficulty sitting for long periods of time as well. He had also had stomach problems where he would not eat or become constipated often. It is common in some autistic children to get a condition called leaky gut and although we never had him diagnosed for this, Camron was displaying some symptoms by having various stomach issues. We were introduced to NCD through a friend and business associate, Don Groth. He told us he had been using an all natural supplement that safely and effectively removes toxins from the body and he wanted us to try it because it had worked so well for him. I immediately thought of Camron because we knew that autism could be caused by metals or toxins in the body and since we believed this to be the case with Camron we decided to try it not just for ourselves but for Camron. Since taking the NCD,( we started Camron on 6 drops 3 times a day), we have been told that Camron can sit for 45 minutes to do class work, is talking more and interacting more with others. He will repeat words back which is building up his vocabulary. I can hardly keep up with the things he says now because he is observing and imitating the things he sees others do. As soon as he started taking the NCD, his eating habits automatically improved. Camron has been known to be a pretty good eater so when he would not eat much or not at all on a particular day, we knew that something was wrong Before he would not really eat as much and even skip lunch at school sometimes. With the NCD he has a healthy appetite again and no more stomach pains or problems. We are so grateful to have been introduced to NCD. Not only did Camron not have any bad reaction to it, it is odorless and tasteless so we would put it in any drink or food without Camron knowing. This worked out perfectly because Camron is very sensitive to certain food texture and will not eat or drink anything that tastes “funny” to him. We really enjoy the product and will continue to use it for the overall health of Camron and our family. Thank your Don and the Waiora Team, Chester & Christine Green
I have been taking Waiora Healthy Aging Formula and the Natural Cellular Defense now for about Four weeks. As you know I was in a terrible accident where a loaded semi truck rear-ended me from behind at they say about 50 miles per hour as I was stopped and signaling to make a left turn, I was rushed to the emergency room at Baldwin Medical Center by ambulance in Baldwin, WI about 6 years ago.
I had a broken lower back and a broken neck but it did not sever my spinal cord, I also had a cracked right knee. For four months they tried just therapy, and after I collapsed twice during therapy, they did a spinal gram they found the lower back had been splintered from my tailbone to my #4 lumber. First the specialist Dr. Butterman did a complete lumbar surgery, he fused all my lower lumbar to my #4 lumber. This was a 13 hour surgery where they open you up first in the front and take out your stomach to get at the front of your spine, then they put in the bolts and hardware,
put your stomach back in and turn you over and open you up in the back and finish bolting you together after taking out the tissue between each lower lumbar of the spine. I then was placed in a plastic cast type thing that did not allow me to move that area at all. After about a year and 6 months Dr. Butterman said that was solid enough to now go ahead and repair my upper cervical 3,4,5 in the neck, with another fushion, this was not as painful but it had left me with restricted movement in my neck and I was not allowed to drive. When that was healed solid enough, they went and did a total knee replacement of my right knee. The doctors told me I would never work again and would have to lead a very docile life. As you know, "docile," is not my style. During this time of recovery my wife filed for divorce and left me with her percentage of the court awarded some the court allowed me. She was ashamed of having a so-called cripple for a husband!
I did extra excercise during this past summer in the heat to regain the use of my knee to the point of complete exhaustion, I was then hospitalized in the intensive care unit at the Amery Medical Center 5 days were fliuds were put into my veins to keep me from death. Now I was a wreck and the doctors told me I had to realize I was not 35 years old but over sixty and had to lead this docile life style. That is when I tried extra vitamins and many other supplements to help my back pain. I could not get thru the day without about 6-8 powerful pain pills a day and could not work for more than an hour. I was not able to sleep more than two hours at a time even with 2 sleeping pills.
Then you introduced me to Waiora Natural Cellular Defense and their Healthy Aging Formula. As you said, put 2 drops on my tongue morning and night of Cellular Defense and 2 tablets of Healthy Aging Formula with breakfast and 2 at evening meal. I began to feel the difference in my body after about two weeks, I could sleep longer, did not have as much pain and could work about 4-5 hours before becoming tired.
Now this is what I did, I wanted to become pain free and so I took 4 pills in the morning and 4 pills at evening to speed up my continued feeling better. Down to 3 pain pills a day and some days none, but I developed a mild case of hives or itching. So I am back to 2 pills a day in the morning and 2 pills at evening meal and the itching as left me.
So a word of caution, " follow the directions on the bottle. "
I will never be remade to the age of 35 again but now as I can sleep and have 2-3 times the energy. I believe I can live with this. After my exam last week, my personal physician,
Dr Rimstad has lifted my 2 mile limit a trip one way to a 100 and maybe after the next exam it will be unlimited. He has asked me if I had found "The Fountain of Youth" and I said "Maybe Doc" I will tell you my secret at my next exam.
P.S. I had lost all my desire for romance but now with the loss of pain and the extra stamina, I think I could hold my own with any 40 year old female. It's hard to believe that I'm the same guy that was in bed near death in July, 2005! Art Groth Amery, WI 54001

My grandmother of 86 yrs has been in failing health for the past 3 years. She has emphysema, asthma and arthritis. For the past eight months her ability to even walk across her apartment has been a struggle due to lack of energy; breath and joint pain. She has literally not left her apartment except for an occasional doctor’s appointment in months. As my aunts and I would take care of her, the future seemed bleak. On August 16 th I visited her and shared some of the Waiora products, The Heart Essentials and the Natural Cellular Defense. I gave her the information, asked her to read it and gave her the product. I explained to her that trying it would not hurt her and if it helped it would be wonderful, but what did she have to lose? It was all natural and I was giving it to her!
She began taking the NCD right away and I spoke to her for the first time yesterday afternoon. Her voice was GREAT! Her exact words “Debbi, I FEEL WONDERFUL, I do not know what this has done but I can breath, my energy level is back and in fact, sorry I missed your call earlier, but I went shopping at Wal-Mart!” She said her ability to walk and her energy level had increased tremendously so please, order her more and she will pay for it this time!
I have not heard this excitement from her in a long time! Thank you Waiora and NCD for bringing life back into someone I love very much! Debbi Green… Tulsa Oklahoma
I have an elder golden retriever, Sam, who is 15 years of age. On August 16, 2005 he was diagnosed with cancer in the sinus cavity area. The vet explained that Sam was at the latter stages of his cancer and we should plan to put him down. They gave us 4 days of antibiotics for the associated infection. He could not breathe normally or without difficulty and blood was continually coming from his nose The reason for the 4 days was due to the plans to spend time with him and put him down on the 4th day, Saturday, August 20, 2005 . I had just received my supply of the natural cellular defense. I decided to try the product with my dog, Sam. I figured that there was nothing to lose. I gave him 6 drops on his tongue 3 times per day. I started on Wednesday, August 17, 2005 . By August 19, the blood had stopped coming from his nose and he was breathing easier. On August 20, 2005 , Sam stopped just lying on his bed and was up and around running in the back yard taking the other dogs toys to play with. Sam has continued to survive and has continued to run and play. I realize he is 15 years of age and will not live too much longer. However, I believe that the natural cellular defense is incredible in that it lengthened Sam's life.
I do a lot of work with gray horses. They have a significant number of benign melanomas. We’ve been using NATURAL CELLULAR DEFENSE internally and topically, and the melanomas are disappearing.
Their pH is becoming balanced. I have a test group, 1/3 of group of gray Arabian horses are on the NATURAL CELLULAR DEFENSE. It’s phenomenal how they are progressing.
Metal toxins can be from preservatives in vaccines. We have horses that we haven’t found anything to help with mercury in their cells. With the NATURAL CELLULAR DEFENSE we’re getting dramatic results.
One little horse almost died at 2 weeks of age, he had lethal amounts of mercury from a vaccine. We just maintained him, but issues weren’t addressed. We put him on NATURAL CELLULAR DEFENSE and in 2 weeks he tested clean of mercury. Joyce Jackson

After having such success with NCD for myself, I decided to give it to my granddaughter who had just returned from spending the summer with her dad. She came home with 18 warts, they were all over her body. She didn’t want to go back to school because of the warts. I started giving her the NCD three times a day and the wards started to die after a few days on the NCD. With each passing day they become smaller and smaller. My ten year old granddaughter is so happy and in her words says “I LOVE WAIORA, and when I am old enough I will be giving Waiora to people to help them like it has helped me” Linda

Another victory ....after taking the NCD drops for just 2 weeks, the 6 planters wart seeds in the bottom of my foot migrated to the surface of the skin and I simply peeled them off. No more pain, no more tenderness. The "holes" are mending and the calluses are diminishing. Thanks. Trudy Alexander, Montana

During a trip to Iowa in May, I developed a viral infection behind my eardrum. Thinking it was just a cold, I did not go the doctor until mid July and was given a steroid and an antibiotic. My doctor believed that would clear it up in a few days, but it did not improve at all. In Mid August, I began using Natural Cellular Defense. Within a few weeks, the symptoms of the infection were reduced dramatically and have continued to improve to where the symtoms are essentially gone. My wife and my two girls all use NCD to reduce toxins and carcinogens and for its anti-viral properties. What a great product.

For five years my left nostril has been completely blocked. I couldn’t breathe in or out. Every five minutes or so Thick green mucus would drip out. There was no control over it. Every morning I would wake up with green slime all over the bed pillows and sheets. Going out anywhere was a struggle. My nose would be full without me knowing. My kids would not go anywhere with me. They would look at me and point, trying not to be embarrassed. A few weeks ago I learned about N.C.D. I gave it a try and WOW! I now am breathing without a problem! (in just three days at 3 drops – 3 times/day) I was able to cancel my $13,000 operation that was set up for one month. Russ Tulsa, Okla
Dr. Philip, a doctor from Hopewell Junction, NY, decided to try the NCD on one of his patients that currently has throat cancer. He reported this morning, that the patient’s pain has diminished considerably, and her energy levels are up, much to his surprise. It is too early to tell any oncology results, but he is hopeful. He also has been taking the product, and he had a prior injury to his right shoulder where he could not lift it above his head. He doesn’t know how this worked, but after being on the NCD product for a short time, he is able to lift his arm over his head. He has been “pleasantly impressed” with Waiora and the results so far.

I have a propensity to cysts....I've had a couple removed from my face. About three weeks ago I noticed that I had a raised area on one side of my nose (right about where my glasses sit). At first, I thought it was just from my glasses, but after awhile I realized that it is another cyst. It continued to grow and I began to think about going to a plastic surgeon to schedule the removal.
To make a long story short, I decided to put a few drops of the Natural Cellular Defense on it. I figured it couldn't hurt. I did this this morning.....the cyst is almost gone this afternoon. I'm a pretty skeptical person. Ha, I'm a very skeptical person. I don't know if it was a coincidence. I have to admit, my personality leans that way. All I know is the growth that I was worried about is for the most part gone and that makes me very happy. Linda

My name Anna Cunningham, I’m 8 years old. I had a wart on my thumb the size of a pencil erasor for about 5 months. It was ugly, and I didn’t like it. I was biting the skin around it, so that the skin around it was pink and raw. I didn’t like people to see it.
My daddy gave me 4 drops 3 times a day of the Natural Cellular Defense. Sometimes he’d put it on top of the wart. Then it got smaller and smaller, and then it was gone. Now you can’t even see where it was. That took about 2 weeks .
There was another bump that was around my finger nail on my other hand. It was bloody, and a brownish-red color. It was nasty. After about 3 weeks taking the Natural Cellular Defense and putting it on the bump, I peeled it off. The skin underneath was rosy and healed when it peeled off.
I like the Natural Cellular Defense. I put it in my family’s water pitcher in the fridge when my dad went away. I take it every day because it’s good for me. Anna Cunningham, Kauai, HI, Nov 17, 2005

I have been suffering from a never healing lesions on both my legs for the past so many years. Worst of all, I could be very uncomfortable because I was also bothered with a never ending itchiness on my legs. On top of that, I can not wear many of my favorite watches (I love to collect and wear different watches.) because they leave me with skin eruptions and itchiness on my wrist.
I have received different prescriptions from different doctors I have approached about these skin problem. I was told that I have poor blood circulation as a result.
I took the NCD as soon as it was available. AND I saw a dramatic change with my skin problems just after a week of using the NCD. I noticed that the lesions on both my legs started to dry up, itchiness is gone, and I can now use the different watches I want to wear with no wrist skin eruptions.
I don't think I will ever stop to take my daily dose of NCD. Even the scars on my legs are lightening up that I could probably be able to wear shorts now. Thank you Waiora for introducing NCD, my skin problems are now things of the past. Romy Salazar ______________________________________________________________________________
I am so excited about the products. While waiting for my Natural Cellular Defense I ordered the Healthy Aging Formula. After years of sports, I have a bad knee, and have been walking with a limp for the past two years. After three days on the Healthy Aging Formula, the pain was gone, the swelling went down and I was no longer limping! I'm still playing baseball thanks to Waiora!

Bob,I have had 3 experiences attributed to NCD use:
1. Herpes Virus:The evening before our return to Denver from 2 weeks in Michigan on vacation I noticed a break out of the Herpes Simplex virus on my left cheek bone near my left eye. We were in the sun a lot on our vacation -playing golf, swimming at the lake, etc and sun is a stressor which has caused breakouts in the past. I have had the virus in my system since about age 8. When I get a breakout it normally takes two weeks or more for it to subside and during that time I feel like I have mono - very tired and ornery. When we got back to Denver the next day, my initial order for NCD was here and i started taking it immediately (which was 24 hours after the breakout). The cold sore like bump on my check bone went away within 2 days and I did not have the mono like feeling. This is the first time in over 50 years that I have had such rapid relief from a breakout.
2. Virus - My wife, daughter and grandsons all came down with a 24 hour flu like virus in early September. I was taking the NCD in a clean out mode (10 drops 3 times per day for 2 weeks) and did not get the stomach ache and diarrhea that they got.
3. Diarrhea - A week ago I had a half day when I hit the toilet a few times. I went back to 10 drops of NCD 2 times and it stopped by the end of the day
I have Crohn's disease and have been very sick due to a staph infection. After only one week of taking Natural Cellular Defense, my infection was almost completely cleared up. I was able to stop taking antibiotics and I feel better than I have for months. Britta Snow, Harriman Tennessee

I have noticed a drastic change in my heartburn. After the first day I took it I was already feeling better. Right then and there I was won over. Before, I would get acid reflux and pain from many foods, not just the foods that I’m not supposed to eat. Sometimes things like tomato sauce or pizza would give me heartburn as it’s going down. Non-acidic foods like bananas or vegetables would come up as acid after I eat them.After taking 3 drops of the Natural Cellular Defense 3 times a day, NO FOODS GAVE ME HARTBURN unless I lied down right after eating them. Last night I ate 2 Taco Bell burritos and lied down right afterwards, and experienced heartburn. I took the Natural Cellular Defense and it decreased the pain and burning feeling slowly, and I woke up feeling fine. Normally I would wake up feeling nauseous if I ate too soon before going to bed.
I can feel it de-acidifying my stomach. I believe long term use of this product, combined with a healthy diet, will heal my esophagus and keep me disease free.
Bodhi Downer, Kauai, HI, Nov 17, 200
My name is Pat L. and I live in Texas. I developed gestational diabeties just over 25 years ago and became insulin dependant. I was first introduced to the Natural Cellular Defense product at the end of August. Since then I have added the Cardio Health Pack. From September to October I was getting my cholesterol levels checked by my doctor. Here are my results:
Sept. 13th Oct. 14th
Cholesterol 227 180
HDL 91 85
LDL 126 78
Triglycerites 48 87
Cholesterol Risk Factor 1.39 .91
I have also seen some slight differences in my blood sugar levels as well. I feel great and I am so thankful that my son Brian C. in Kauai told me about these products.

I had a very severe infection in my throat for which the doctors had me on antibiotics for 5 months. Unfortunately, not only did the medication fail to address the infection, it caused me to develop C-diff colitis a dangerous gastro-intestinal problem. I was taken off the anti-biotics and a couple of weeks later started to take the NCD 10 drops three times daily. Within 4 days, the terrible taste I had experienced from the infection was gone and my doctor said that I should continue to take the NCD for 4 months. The infection was cleared and I now take NCD as directed on the label as a preventive measure. Additionally, I use the Superior Fiber Blend, which has inulin, to address the long term damage caused by the C-diff colitis. Kelley Spear Hudson , Ohio

I have pretty symptomatic GERD (gastric reflux disease). I have DEFINITELY noticed a change since I've started using NCD (about 3 weeks ago). I still take Zantac, but have been able to back off from 20 mgm Prilosec daily. I am excited! Lisa Tulsa Oklahoma
Results from NCD on esophageal reflux Hi Stan - I received a sample bottle of the Natural Cellular Defense at the beginning of July and have been "rationing" it by taking only 3 drops once a day vs the recommended 3 times a day until the product begins shipping in August.
I suffer from esophageal reflux (a pouch in the esophagus that can collect food). In reading the Zeolite White Paper and noticing that zeolite has been effective in reducing gastric reflux - it dawned on me that I have not been having the frequency of reflux issues!
I cannot wait to get my product next week so I can begin taking the recommended dosage. Based on the results to far, I am convinced it will virtually eliminate my reflux issues. Thanks for bringing such a product to market. Bob Hood
I have a cousin, Dan, who 25 years ago was in a coma for a month. During that time he was given large quantities of antibiotics. Consequently, he developed a yeast infection. Over the years he has tried numerous medications and diet changes but, nothing has helped. I just recently found out about the yeast infection and sent him a bottle of Natural Cellular Defense with the instructions to try it and see what happens. After four days he called and said he was seeing an improvement and felt better than he has in years. Each day he is getting better. He loves this stuff and this is what he says about it: "Natural Cellular Defense has gotten me on the path to recovery with this yeast infection because nothing else has worked. I feel better already after four days on NCD. I am using nothing else, so I know it is NCD that is helping me. Thank you Waiora!" Dan Borst Kris & Shawn Riedel
I am type II diabetic and my normally controlled blood sugar reading run between 106-115 before eating in the morning. This is controlled somewhat

Natural Cellular Defense (A Zeolite) for Detoxing

Natural Cellular Defense (NCD)………from Waiora

Natural Cellular Defense (NCD) seems to be living up to its name in an extraordinary way. Each week more information is revealed. Anecdotal reports of cancer healing in weeks keep occurring.

Additionally several reports suggest that zeolite’s outer coat absorbs glucose and has dropped blood sugar by as much as 50 points in 1 hour in cases of serious diabetes.

As the research unfolds for preparing women for pregnancy by removing the 14 major toxins in breast milk, the initial results seem more than extraordinary. The average woman, whether she has been vegan for 15 years or on live foods for 6 years, tests positive for 12-14 toxins in her liver, breast, and brain. After one week on our 10-day detoxification program while taking 15 drops 4 times a day of NCD, the average decrease in toxins was to 0 to 2 toxins in the liver, breast, and brain with no detoxification symptoms. One person, who did not take the NCD, had a reduction of only one toxin in the liver, breast, and brain.

So far 5 people, which are 100% of those tested with the synergy of our 10-day detoxification & NCD, have gone from 12-14 toxins to 0-2 toxins after only one week.

NCD deserves your attention. Enclosed is a summary of the product and how to obtain it the most cost effective way.

I feel it is imperative for us to be aware of the importance of Natural Cellular Defense in our daily health regimen. This is not a short-term supplement, but rather a life-long health remedy. While we continue to live in a toxic environment, we will always need to use this product. It is for your economic advantage to purchase the product on a wholesale basis. There are two benefits to being a distributor, one being the ability to purchase Natural Cellular Defense on a wholesale basis, which is approximately $12.00 - $15.00 less per bottle than the retail cost; the other benefit is using NCD as an income earning possibility!

Natural Zeolite Product - Summary

This summary details a major breakthrough in detoxifying the human body of the carcinogens, heavy metals, viruses, bacteria, fungi, and overall acid conditions that promote and cause disease.

Some 70,000 chemicals are being dumped into our environment, 65,000 of which are potentially hazardous to our health. We live in a virtual sea of pollutants, and carry many of these toxins within us. They can be found even in unborn children. A 2004 study by the Environmental Working Group identified 287 industrial chemicals in babies Umbilical-cord blood, including 180 known to cause cancer and 217 that are toxic to the brain and nervous system.

In my research to develop a detoxification system for prospective mothers, I recently learned about a naturally occurring mineral called zeolite, which has a unique, negatively charged, crystalline structure. Zeolite is formed from the fusion of lava and ocean water, and combines all four elements. I feel that zeolite is an alchemical gift from God. It has been used for more than 800 years in Asia as a remedy for overall health and well-being, and is on theFDA?s GRAS list (generally recognized as safe). Zeolite is available commercially in a purified, activated form, in the zeolite product.

The results of research on zeolite are very impressive:
1. Zeolite appears to prevent and may become an important treatment for cancer.
In one study, 78 percent of the 65 participants with terminal cancer (all types) are now in complete remission for 12 months (LifeLink Pharmaceuticals, 2005).

2. It has a chelation-like effect in removing heavy metals (particularly
lead, mercury, cadmium, and arsenic), pesticides, herbicides, PCBs, and other toxins from the body. These toxins are strongly correlated with the occurrence of a wide range of diseases, including cancers and neurological disorders such as Alzheimer?s, autism, and dementia.

3. Zeolite also improves liver function, indirectly improving elimination of pesticides, herbicides, and xeno-estrogens.

4. Zeolite appears to block viral replication, and may prove to be a potent anti-viral and general remedy for all viruses. To date, 40 anecdotal cases of herpes zoster have reportedly been healed. Preliminary anecdotal case studies suggest that it may help alleviate rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and hepatitis C as well as the common cold and flu.

5. Zeolite?s binding power was proven during the Chernobyl disaster, when tons of it were used to remove radioactive cesium and strontium-90 before they contaminated local water systems.

6. Zeolite creates a natural buffer in the system by establishing an optimal pH level (between 7.35 and 7.45), which in turn activates healthy brain function and a strong immune system.

7. It shows promise as an effective detoxifier for prospective mothers. Recently, at the Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center, Zeolite was added to the protocol for the 10-day detoxification program for prospective mothers. In two women who just completed the program, toxins in their breast tissue droppedsignificantly ? From 12 in one and 13 in the other to only two over the course of seven days. Although anecdotal evidence and centuries of use in Asia suggest that zeolite is safe to use even during pregnancy and breastfeeding, its safe use in pregnancy has not been proven in double-blind studies.

8. According to testimonials, zeolite promotes a sense of well-being, clarity, and happiness. It appears to do this as a consequence of eliminating toxins and also, according to preliminary research, by increasing serotonin production. One study suggests that zeolite also helps relieve depression.

9. Anecdotal reports suggest that zeolite increases energy, immune function, and
general health.

10. Zeolite neutralizes the formation of nitrosamines in the stomach. Found in processed meats, nitrosamines are one cause of stomach cancer. Another positive effect on the stomach, according to many anecdotal reports, is relief of acid reflux.

11. Testimonials suggest that zeolite captures triggering antigens, which cause allergies, migraines, and asthma, decreasing the rate and severity of these symptoms.

12. Zeolite directly absorbs free radicals and thus decreases free radical activity and damage to the body.

Zeolite is a clear, tasteless, and odorless liquid that, taken daily as oral drops, supports us in living healthy, happy, and active lives in an increasingly toxic world. For information on how to obtain Zeolite …….

Sublingual B12 and Neurological Benefits

B12: The Vital Vitamin: Oral B12 equivalent to B12 injections

by Terri Mitchell

Methylcobalamin( 5 mg, 60 dissolvable lozenges ) Methylcobalamin is the form of vitamin B12 active in the central nervous system. It is an active coenzyme of the vitamin B12 analogs, that are essential for cell growth and replication. The liver may not convert cyanocobalamin, the common supplemental form of vitamin B12, into adequate amounts of methylcobalamin the body may need for proper neuronal functioning. Methylcobalamin may exert its neuroprotective effects through enhanced methylation, acceleration of nerve cell growth or its ability to promote healthy homocysteine levels.
For methylcobalamin to be available to the brain, it should be allowed to dissolve under the tongue to bypass the liver during first pass through the blood stream.
For decades, people have been injecting themselves with vitamin B12 because they thought oral supplements were not adequately absorbed. New research indicates that oral B12 supplements may be as good or better than injections. Those who have low levels of vitamin B12 in the blood have long resorted to injections of this essential B vitamin, an uncomfortable delivery method at best. New evidence suggests that oral B12 works as well as injections, according to a study published in the journal Blood -but high doses must be taken. This verifies reports from Sweden dating from the 1970s that pernicious anemia , a disease of B12 deficiency, can be controlled with oral B12. Resolving the debate over oral-versus-injections is very timely, given that vitamin B12 is a homocysteine-lowering factor. Homocysteine has emerged as a strong and independent risk factor for heart disease and stroke, and is also connected to chronic diseases such as arthritis, Alzheimer's, and diabetes.
According to the recent data, 2,000 micrograms/day of oral B12 cures the symptoms of B12 deficiency, including elevated homocysteine, neurological problems, and elevated methylmalonic acid (a marker of B12 deficiency). The oral version works as well as injections, with the added feature of maintaining high levels in the blood over time. The study showed that after a month, the blood levels of the vitamin in people receiving injections dropped and stayed at a plateau, whereas blood levels of those receiving oral B12 continued to rise.
B12 lowers homocysteine: Although oral B12 did not reduce homocysteine in every case, when it did, the results were dramatic. Some of the people in the study had homocysteine levels as high as 175 micromoles per liter (the optimal safe range for homocysteine is under 6). In the case of one patient, 2,000 micrograms of oral B12 for four months reduced their homocysteine from 113.4 micromoles per liter to 8.2. Injected B12 also significantly reduced homocysteine - the main difference being that the injected version worked faster.
Interestingly, some of the patients did not respond to supplemental vitamin B12. It was discovered that they were also deficient in folate, and until folate was replaced, their homocysteine remained elevated. Vitamin B12 and folate work synergistically in the chemical reactions that recycle homocysteine back to methionine in the methylation cycle.
It is also interesting to note that participants in the study with both B12 and folate deficiencies were depressed, had anorexia, and addiction to alcohol. It is well-established that folate or B12 deficiency causes psychiatric problems ranging from loss of memory to insanity. This is probably due to the vitamin's role in methylation - a biochemical process crucial for the maintenance of brain chemistry and nerves. B12 plays a role in the synthesis of serotonin, dopamine and norepinephrine.
Intrinsic factor is secreted by the stomach to help the body absorb B12. Older people produce less intrinsic factor, and are thus more vulnerable to B12 deficiency. In the study mentioned at the beginning of this article, high-dose oral B12 was absorbed as well as injectable. No supplemental intrinsic factor was given. Intrinsic factor is usually associated with a chronic B12 deficiency known as pernicious anemia. Patients with pernicious anemia lack intrinsic factor usually because of insufficient stomach acid. Others may have antibodies to the factor - an inappropriate autoimmune response to one's own proteins. Injected B12 has traditionally been used for pernicious anemia because it bypasses the absorption problem. However, doctors are beginning to realize that pernicious anemia patients are not the only patients they see with B12 deficiencies. Anyone with elevated homocysteine, psychiatric disorders, eating disorders, sleep disorders, or who is elderly is potentially B12-deficient. These conditions are more likely caused by diet-induced B12-deficiency than a lack of intrinsic factor. All should respond to oral B12.
Different forms of vitamin B12: Cyanocobalamin is the usual form of B12 sold in this country. But another form, methylcobalamin, may be the best of all. Research shows that this active form of B12 has the unique ability to provoke the regeneration of nerves without adverse side effects. This is because B12 facilitates methylation, the process that creates and maintains nerves and brain chemicals. Research shows that a lack of methylcobalamin causes degeneration of the brain and spinal cord - a condition known as subacute combined degeneration. In this disease, nerves lose their insulation and begin to deteriorate. This process, known as demyelination, occurs in other neurological diseases such as multiple sclerosis and chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy.
High doses of methylcobalamin have been used to treat degenerative neurological diseases in rodents and humans. People with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Lou Gehrig's disease) took 25 mg a day of methylcobalamin for a month. In this disease, the neurons that control muscle movements deteriorate. The double-blind, controlled study showed that methylcobalamin improved muscle response after a month of treatment. Methylcobalamin has been given to mice with the mouse version of muscular dystrophy. A remarkable reversal of degenerating nerves occurred. Methylcobalamin did not stop the disease, but it slowed it down.
It has been documented that the level of B12 decreases every year with age. Age-related deficiency is associated with hearing loss, memory impairment and psychiatric disorders, along with heart disease and stroke. Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients have less B12 in their spinal fluid than people without the disease. They also have less SAMe - the substance required to methylate cobalamin (B12) to methylcobalamin, the active form. The failure of B12 supplementation to improve AD patients in some studies may be due to their inability to activate B12 in the brain. Methylcobalamin is already methylated: it doesn't require SAMe.
Another feature of aging is the increase of free radicals. Free radicals are elevated in Parkinson's disease (PD) and AD. In PD, a substance known as MAO-B is also elevated. MAO-B creates free radicals, and the MAO-B inhibitor, selegiline, is often given to PD patients. MAO-B is linked to memory impairment. In 1992 Italian researchers reported that elevated MAO-B, dementia and B12 deficiency all go together.
B12 deficiency diseases: Diet, age and drugs are the prime culprits behind B12 deficiency. Meat is the primary source of vitamin B12. Strict vegetarians - people who eat no animal products whatsoever are at risk for B12 deficiency. (Vegetarians who eat eggs and fish will get B12 in their diet. In addition, some seaweeds contain the vitamin, and the gut may manufacture a certain amount.) However, a meat diet doesn't guarantee that a person won't be B12 deficient. Some elderly people, for example, can eat high quantities of meat but still be B12 deficient because they don't have enough hydrochloric acid in their stomach to maintain intrinsic factor. Meat-eaters taking certain drugs are also at risk for B12 deficiency. Cimetidine (Tagamet), omeprazole (Prilosec), and other drugs that inhibit gastric secretion can cause B12 deficiency. Anyone who chronically takes drugs for stomach ulcers, "heartburn" or gastroesophageal reflux may be creating B12 deficiency in themselves.
There appears to be something else causing B12 deficiency in older people that researchers don't yet understand. In a Dutch study, researchers found that about 25% of the participants had low B12. But gut problems only accounted for 28% of those cases. The cause in the remaining 72% is a mystery. Researchers do know that more people may be deficient than currently appreciated. When researchers at the Veterans Administration Hospital in Oklahoma used modified criteria for B12 deficiency (elevations in homocysteine and methylmalonic acid, plus serum B12 up to 300 pg/mL-the norm is usually 200), they uncovered twice as many people with B12 deficiency than would have been detected by serum values alone.
Elevated homocysteine is found in many chronic diseases including arthritis and diabetes. Researchers in Japan have discovered that noninsulin-dependent diabetes patients with blood vessel problems have elevated homocysteine. When treated with 1000 micrograms of vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin) daily for three weeks, homocysteine levels dropped significantly. Although the study didn't follow the patients long enough to see the effects of long-term treatment, the condition of the patients' blood vessels will likely improve as the levels of homocysteine are reduced, as homocysteine is extremely toxic to blood vessels.
B12 and sleep: Those who can't get to sleep at night may need vitamin B12. Studies show that B12 causes an earlier release of melatonin at night which resets the sleep-wake cycle. (Melatonin has been called "the sleep hormone" because of its effects on sleep). B12 acts directly on the pineal gland to provoke a faster release of melatonin. At the tail end, B12 causes melatonin to drop off faster. B12 helps you get to sleep earlier, and may help you wake up earlier if you leave a curtain open to the morning sun. B12 sensitizes you to morning light, which helps you wake up. Very serious sleep-wake disorders have been successfully treated with vitamin B12 in the methylcobalamin form, although it may not work for everyone. Unfortunately, the vitamin doesn't help people who want to cut down on their sleep time altogether.
During the 1950s, B12 was frequently given to heart patients. The vitamin fell out of vogue as drugs took over the therapeutic picture. New findings on the connection between homocysteine and vascular disease, plus the failure of drugs to have an impact on the number of heart attacks and strokes, have shifted the focus back to B12 and other homocysteine-lowering vitamins. The notion that B12 must be injected to be effective has been disproven in recent studies. Swedish experience shows that oral B12 is effective for the treatment of pernicious anemia.
B12 has many benefits, including the reduction of homocysteine, restoration of normal sleep patterns, and mood effects. B12 deficiency is a fairly common deficiency in elderly people who frequently have disrupted digestion. It can cause symptoms that look exactly like Alzheimer's disease, and it's crucial for the retention of folate in cells.
Testing for B12 deficiency: There are several tests geared towards diagnosing B12 deficiency. Homocysteine is an indirect test. A more direct method is to measure methylmalonic acid which becomes elevated in B12 deficiency. There are other tests which measure gut secretions or antibodies to gut secretions. The Schilling test can help ferret out what is causing the deficiency, and a simple blood test can show blood levels.
Dosage: The dose of oral B12 supplements for sleep disorders is 3000 mcg a day, while 2000 mcg a day has proven useful in lowering homocysteine and correcting B12 deficiency. In published studies, it took four weeks for the sleep effect, and four months for the homocysteine-lowering effect-so be patient. People with degenerative diseases, including Alzheimer's, should take very high doses in the range of 3-4000 mg, supplemented with SAMe.
There is also the option of taking methylcobalamin, which is the neurologically active form of B12. The potential age-reversing benefits are well-worth the modest price. Methylcobalamin is a form of B12 that is sold as a drug in Japan. It is the methylcobalamin form of B12 that has been used in most European and Japanese studies showing efficacy against neurological disease. The liver converts about 1% of ingested cyanocobalamin into methylcobalamin, but it is far more efficient to dissolve a good tasting methylcobalamin lozenge in the mouth for immediately assimilation into the brain.

B12 available at Edelweiss as 5,000 mcg (or 5 mg) sublingual lozenges, or B12 intramuscular injections, or B12 IV in a Meyers cocktail with other vitamins including B5, B6, B complex, Vitamin C, Glutathione, and Magnesium.

Lypospheric Vitamin C

All about Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C (available at Edelweiss)
I am new to the Forum and I am consumer of and an agent for LivOn Laboratorie's Lypo-Spheric™ Vitamin C . I have written the following article to help my clients learn about Vitamin C in general and about the Lypo-Spheric™ Vitamin C specifically. It is not a scientific paper but it should help you understand how this amazing new product works and why it is equal to or perhaps even better than intravenous Vitamin C, at least for lower doses (under 30 grams)! My personal testimony is also below.
Lypo-Spheric™ Vitamin C:
New Nano-technology offers most powerful, most bio-available way to deliver therapeutic doses of Vitamin C in Oral form!
Lypo-Spheric™ Vitamin C represents a major breakthrough in delivering high therapeutic doses of Vitamin C orally! By employing Liposomal Encapsulation Technology (LET) it is able to transport virtually 100% of its Vitamin C to the cells, tissues, glands, and organs that require it.

Lypo-Spheric™ Vitamin C (referred to as Lypo-C in this article) was developed in 2004 and is offered exclusively by LivOn Laboratories. The company web site is www.livonlabs.com. Ordering information is presented at the end of this article. As Dr. Linus Pauling said, curing the Common Cold will end a huge amount of needless suffering. But as you will see that is only the beginning of what Lypo-C can do for you and your family.

What is known about Vitamin C
In the 65 years since its discovery, Vitamin C has come to be known as a "wonder worker." We depend on ascorbic acid for many aspects of our biochemical functioning; yet human beings are among only a handful of animal species that cannot synthesize ANY of their own vitamin C in their bodies. We must obtain100% of this nutrient in our diet and supplements. Vitamin C has been shown to prevent and cure many illnesses, from everyday ailments such as the common cold to devastating diseases such as Viral Hepatitis! With over 100,000 published scientific studies, Vitamin C is the most proven, well documented and powerful antioxidizing, immune-boosting, anti-pathogenic, anti-aging, anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-toxin, nutrient known to man. These properties still amaze medical researchers who produce an average of one new study everyday on Vitamin C. It is also one of the most powerful free radical fighters know to man! Given sufficient dosage, it will kill bacteria and pathogenic microbes of all kinds, as well as virus, mycroplasma, yeast and fungus. If you are carrying any pathogenic burden in your body whether you are aware of it or not, Vitamin C will attack and kill it. In 1976, Dr. Linus Pauling, Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1962 and in Peace in 1954 brought Vitamin C into the limelight. He wrote, ”With the recognition of the value of vitamin C to strengthen the body's defenses against infections, this universal scourge, the common cold, can be brought under control.” Daily maintenance dosing of Lypo-C will provide high resistance to infectious diseases including Cold and Flu. If a cold or flu virus does gain a foothold, prompt, higher hourly dosing will cure the infection within hours. (See below)

Dr. Thomas E. Levy, M.D. JD www.TomLevyMD.com
Dr. Levy is a practicing cardiology and internal medicine physician for more than 25 years! Dr. Levy is author of “Healing the Incurable, Vitamin C, Infectious Diseases, and Toxins" (published 2002), one of the most important medical books of this century. You can purchase this book when ordering your Lypo-C. I have also written a partial summary of parts of this book that you will receive with your first order of Lypo-C. In the book he presents over 1200 references, a sampling of “the enormous quantity of scientific documentation and hard scientific evidence that demonstrates the incredible ability of Vitamin C to effectively cure, reverse and prevent a wide array of viral and bacterial infectious diseases and poisonings. All of these diseases are considered by modern medicine to be incurable and largely untreatable. This evidence has simply been virtually ignored and remains unacknowledged by the ‘established medical field’ For example, Vitamin C has amazingly already been documented in the medical literature to have readily and consistently cured both acute polio and acute hepatitis, two viral diseases that are still considered by modern medicine to be incurable regardless of the treatment used. Polio babies are completely well in less than a week and hepatitis patients are sick for only a few days, not several months. In 1949 Dr. Frederick Klenner cured 60 out of 60 Polio patients with Vitamin C! And they were left with no residual damage that often left its survivors crippled for life!
The documentation is virtually overflowing with irrefutable evidence that Vitamin C is the single most essential nutrient for achieving and maintaining optimal health. Vitamin C is undoubtedly the ideal agent for treating virtually any viral affection. There are many documented cases showing that the prompt administration of very large intravenous doses of Vitamin C can bring back heavily infected individuals from even comatose states, ultimately resulting in complete cures. Many major viral diseases such as polio, viral hepatitis, measles, mumps, viral encephalitis, chickenpox and herpes infections, viral pneumonia, and influenza (the Flu), are all amazingly shown to be both curable and preventable by Vitamin C. Non-viral infectious diseases such as diphtheria, tetanus and streptococcal infection are also curable and preventable. Tuberculosis, leprosy, and typhoid fever are proven to be reversible and preventable”. And perhaps one day soon, the Bird Flu which is another viral infection, will be prevented and cured by Vitamin C. “To date, no viral infection has been demonstrated to be resistant to the proper dosing of vitamin C”. Then there are the Super-Bugs; bacteria resistant to our strongest antibiotics, but no match for properly dosed Vitamin C. Furthermore, no toxicity level has ever been found for Vitamin C. You cannot take too much! But you can take too little!
Dr Robert Milne M.D. "There is almost no system, organ, gland or cell in your body which does not derive great benefit from a massive supply of Vitamin C. All are greatly strengthened with large doses of non-degraded Vitamin C. The dramatic improvement in effectiveness gained by introducing large doses of Vitamin C directly into the bloodstream is well documented. Prestigious medical research hospitals like Mayo Clinic and the Cleveland Clinic routinely inject Vitamin C right into the bloodstream." When President Nixon went to the hospital with the Flu it was reported on the news that he was treated intravenously with large doses of Vitamin ‘C’!

The problem with ordinary forms of Vitamin C
Traditional forms of Vitamin C severely limit the amount of Vitamin C you can take orally. If you take more than 1 or 2 grams of traditional Vitamin C, the ascorbic acid in the intestines will cause gastric distress including gas, cramps, and diarrhea. Much of the Vitamin C will be eliminated in loose stool and in the urine. A very small percentage (as little as 12%) of ordinary Vitamin C actually gets absorbed into the bloodstream. The more you take, the less is absorbed. Because of the G.I. Barrier, in order to deliver only 2,000mg of usable Vitamin C into the bloodstream, you would have to ingest over 16,000mg (Thirty two 500mg tablets) at one time! Imagine what that would do to your stomach! Also traditional oral Vitamin C is subject to a host of factors (saliva enzymes, digestive juices, bile salts, air) that oxidize it, neutralize it, adulterate it, and even expel it before it ever gets to the cells that need it.

Dr Robert Milne M.D. is author of “Liposomal Encapsulation Technology” 2004.
"Because of its well documented, wonder-working power, man has made countless attempts to make Vitamin C more readily absorbed. But little if any gain has been made until 2004 with Lypo-Spheric™ Vitamin C. That's because the human digestive system was never designed to digest large doses of Vitamin C in any form orally. Many researchers believe that humans used to manufacture all the Vitamin C they needed in the Liver! The fact is, we all have the necessary gene to produce a substance called L-gulonolactone oxidase (GLO) in the human liver, required to make Vitamin C. Unfortunately, humans have a defect in that gene that prevents the production of GLO and therefore prevents the synthesis of Vitamin C.
The Solution:
Lypo-Spheric™ Vitamin C allows you to take Vitamin C orally, bypass the digestive system and deliver it fresh and intact into the bloodstream! Utilizing “Liposomal Encapsulation Technology”(LET), LivOn Labs has radically changed the way Vitamin C is delivered to the bloodstream. LET is a proven nano-technology used by physicians and researchers since the 1970s to deliver therapeutic agents and drugs to targeted tissues and organs in the human body. Now LET has been harnessed to transport virtually 100% of its Vitamin C past the Gastro-Intestinal Barrier (G.I. Barrier), regardless of dose size. Lypo C is taken orally but is delivered straight to the Liver then to the Blood Stream nearly 100% intact. One result is that dose levels can be 10 to 15 times smaller! Conversely, you can now take high mega-doses orally if disease or viral or bacterial infection is present.

How does it work?
The Vitamin C is encapsulated in sub-microscopic bubbles called liposomes. Because of their nano-scopic size and composition, the liposomes slip right through the GI tract unharmed and unchanged. Then they are readily absorbed by the small intestines and transported directly to the liver via the lymphatic system. Once in the liver, the liposomes are metabolized and the Vitamin C is released, just as if it was manufactured there! From there the Vitamin C and liposomal substance called “essential phospholipids” quickly journey to the bloodstream, circulate throughout the body and are "grabbed" by the damaged cells and assimilated by the cells under attack! There is no digestive activity prior to assimilation so there is no gastric irritation! Even those who have taken 30,000 mg (30 grams) at one time have not reported any gastric upset or increased urination! There is also no flushing effect or other degrading effects on the Vitamin C so the body gets close to 100% of the powerful, undegraded Vitamin. You no longer have to flood your digestive system with dozens of pills of Vitamin C with gallons of water and suffer gastric upset so that an ample amount gets into your bloodstream! It's like taking a daily shot of Vitamin C intravenously every day! In fact it may be better:

Dr Thomas E. Levy, M.D. JD "My personal experience with Lypo-Spheric™ Vitamin C suggests that it may be better than an IV injection. Compared to pills, it is like comparing a squirt gun to a fire hose"

What are Liposomes made of and what are their health benefits?
The encapsulating Liposomes are made of “essential phospholipids” which the body needs, recognizes and sends straight to the Liver along with the Vitamin C. This substance has vast health benefits in and of themselves (see www.livonlabs.com.) All cells, glands and organs crave essential phospholipid liposomes! This substance is necessary for life. It is the stuff all cell membranes are made of. They are called 'essential' because the body needs them but cannot synthesize them. The many benefits include the reduction of LDC (bad) cholesterol and the Increase of HDL (good) Cholesterol, improving coronary circulation, Liver regeneration and protection, and much more!

Common Cold and Vitamin C:
Dr. Irwin Stone, author of “Healing Factor, Vitamin C against Disease” (free online book at http://vitamincfoundation.org/stone/index.html) and his family and friends have not had a cold for nearly two decades! His book reports on many studies on Vitamin C and the common cold including Dr Ruskin who in 1938, injected 450mg of Vitamin C hourly starting as soon after the onset of cold symptoms as possible with 2,000 patients. (Remember that one dose of Lypo C is 1000mg!) Practically all patients were completely relieved or markedly improved, usually after the first or second injection! Dr Ruskin wrote, “Vitamin C would appear to be practically an abortive in the treatment of the common cold.” This statement appeared in 1938, and an astronomical number of colds (500 million/year in USA alone) could have been prevented since then. Interestingly, during a 1961 Vitamin C cold study in a ski camp, Drs. Bessel-Lorch noted "all participants showed considerable increase in physical stamina under the influence of vitamin C medication." “The strategy is to raise the blood and tissue levels of Vitamin C by taking repeated large frequent doses as soon as symptoms occur, to a point where the virus can no longer survive, then back to a maintenance dose.”

If Cold symptoms occur, immediately take 2 packets of Lypo-C and repeat every hour until symptoms are gone. Usually by the second or third dose the virus has been effectively inactivated, and no further cold symptoms will appear. The time will vary depending on the strength of the virus and time elapsed since developing the Cold or Flu.

Since taking the "Lypo- C" I feel almost as good as I did before I became ill a little over a year ago. The way I feel is ALIVE!”
E.D.Berkeley, CA “I had been taking 2 blood pressure medications since 1999. After I began taking the Lypo- C, I began to monitor my blood pressure and noticed a big difference in the reading. I began to taper off the medication and then stopped altogether when my blood pressure went down to an acceptable level. I was thrilled when I got these results!”
My testimony: “I had a Brain Stem Stroke in January, 2005. I have suffered from severe fatigue for 8 months, sleeping 11 or 12 hours a day and having only a few good hours each day. After taking the Lypo C for about a week, my energy returned to practically normal, sleeping around 8 hours a day and I have lots of energy all day! I can only guess it is the effect of a greater amount of Vitamin C enhancing the flow of electrons in the body as discussed in Dr Levy’s book that has restored my damaged energy flow! In addition, I cured a cold at its start in a few hours by increasing to 2 doses each hour for 3 hours and followed with one each hour for safety! I will never have a cold or the Flu again!”

I trust you can now see why Lypo-Spheric™ Vitamin C is light years ahead of traditional Vitamin C supplements! Lypo- C may appear to be more expensive compared to traditional Vitamin C but not when you consider the cost per gram actually delivered to the bloodstream and the benefits of mega-C supplementation (the ability to take larges doses) and no gastric upset with Lypo-C. There are a couple of doctors in Baton Rouge, La. who administer high doses of Vitamin C intravenously in the event of serious illness requiring very high intravenous dosing. For help in locating a doctor in your area see http://vitamincfoundation.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=4

Had Stroke in January. With Lypo-Speric C my 12 hr/day sleeping patern is now normal. I have lots of energy all day, not 3 hrs a day! I cured a cold in a 3 hours with 2 doses each hour for 3 hours! I will never have a cold or the Flu again!

Vitamin C for Heart Disease per Linus Pauling


Linus Pauling specifically recommended high oral doses of vitamin C and the amino acid lysine.
Other elements in the following Pauling Therapy protocol, ordered by importance, account for many variables. These recommendations are based on the experience of more than a decade recommending Pauling's protocol, and they feature Pauling's earlier advice published in 1986. This protocol is designed to help overcome a poor diet, advancing age, or the use of prescription drugs commonly given to heart patients.
Cardiologist have been kept in the dark about the vitamin C connection. Few cardiovascular drugs benefit heart patients. Several exacerbate heart conditions and should be eliminated in favor of the following othomolecular protocols:

1. Take Vitamin C as ascorbic acid (or sodium ascorbate, but this form may be less effective) up to bowel tolerance (6 to 18 g per day in divided doses.)
The half-life of vitamin C in the blood stream is 30 minutes. NIH findings indicate that a minimum of 500 mg every 4 hours leads to highest sustained blood levels. Take more before bed, trips, etc. Trouble with bloating/gas/diarrhea after your vitamin C? Try Liposomal Vitamin C
2. Take Lysine 3000 to 6000 mg (3 to 6 g) daily for the maximum therapeutic value. Take 2000 to 3000 mg (2 to 3 g) daily for prevention.
3. Supplement Coenzyme Q10 (100 - 300 mg)
Note: Vitamin C and several vitamins will help stimulate your own synthesis of CoQ10. CoQ10 is a vital substance for energy and proper heart function. Popular drugs interfere with your body's own production of CoQ10, and they may lead to heart failure.
4. NEW: Eliminate man-made/processed fats, such as trans fats and hydrogenated oils. Supplement Omega-3 rich oils, e.g. evening primrose, flaxseed, and certain fish oils.
"Research has shown that an Omega-3 Index of 8 percent to 10 percent reduces a person's relative risk of death from coronary heart disease by 40 percent, and from sudden cardiac death by 90 percent." This benefit probably results from restored insulin-mediated glucose/vitamin C uptake into cells. [See: Protocol for Reversing Diabetes Type II by Eliminating Hydrogenated and Trans Fats and adding Omega-3 oils... ]
Note: Following an Atkins-style diet will eliminate most trans fats because these "poisons" appear mostly in processed carbohydrate foods such as cookies, crackers, snacks, etc. Butter is vastly supperior to margarine. Natural saturated fats are superior to any fats or oils processed for longer shelf life.
5. Take the amino acid proline from 250 mg to 2000 mg daily.
This factor, added to Pauling's original protocol, and recommended by Mathias Rath, may lower elevated Lp(a) within 6 to 14 months. It is difficult to suggest an optimum dose for everyone because the healthy body can manufacture its own proline. A few alternative doctors recommend 2 g (2000 mg), but the Tower HeartTechnology formula has produced consistent good results. It can apparently lower Lp(a) with smaller dosages of proline.
6. Follow Linus Pauling's heart and cardiovascular recommendations as provided in his book 1986 HOW TO LIVE LONGER AND FEEL BETTER
Linus Pauling's Basic Vitamin Advice is Centered on Vitamin C, and adds: Natural Vitamin E - 800 iu (to 3200 iu) Gamma Tocopherol
Per Doctor Sinatra's Miracle of CoQ10 book, an epidemiological WHO study found that low vitamin E is highly predictive of heart attack. Their findings were that heart attack is 70% more likely when serum levels of vitamin E are low, than because of either high blood pressure or high choleserol.
Vitamin A - 20,000 to 40,000 iu
Super B-Complex
Daily Multiple Vitamin/Mineral
Low Sugar
Plenty of Water NEW: Eat salt, but only unrefined salt,
Brownstein discovered literature that a low-salt diet can cause the body to change its hormonal balance as it attempts to retain sodium. This leads to a 400% chance of heart attack in those with high blood pressure and low sodium intake [*]. Refined (ordinary table salt) is poisonous, but unrefined salt has over 80 minerals and can be considered a necessary "health food."
7. Supplement Magnesium (150 to 1500 mg) Certain chelated forms are better absorbed and you need less.
8. Reduce supplemental Manganese (no more than 2 mg).(More than 20 mg daily can lead to irregular heart beats according to the USDA)
Manganese alters mitochodrial integrity in the hearts of swine marginally deficient in magnesium ... These results suggest that high Mn, when fed in combination with low Mg, disrupts mitochondrial ultrastructure and is associated with the sudden deaths previously reported.
9. NEW: Eliminate ordinary sugar and refined carbohydrates.
New research confirms Dr. John Ely's 30-year theory that sugar (glucose) competes with ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) for insulin-mediated uptake into cells. Consuming too much sugar and refined carbs can effectively crowd out Vitamin C.
10. Supplement Vitamin K (1 to 40 mg) to help regulate calcium from soft tissues into bones
Note: Prescription blood "thinning" drugs such as Warfarin and Coumadin interfere with vitamin K. These drugs should never be prescribed for heart patients. They have been proven to cause rapid calcification of soft tissues in animal studies [*] and there is evidence that they cause hard arteries in humans. Unfortunately, these drugs are routinely prescribed. Patients on "rat poison" style blood thinners should avoid vitamin K until they find a nutritionally oriented physician to help wean them. Blood thinner substitutes to the prescription drugs include: 2000 IU Unique-E (from A. C. Grace), arginine (3000 mg), grape seed extract, fish (Omega-3) oils, etc.
11. Avoid supplemental calcium
12. Add a good mineral/multivitamin
13 Supplement the amino acids Taurine, Arginine and Carnitine (1 to 3 g).

The Cure for Heart Disease: Condensed By Owen R. Fonorow
Cardiovascular Diseases Those few species that fail to synthesize ascorbic acid (vitamin C) are prone to a form of ?heart disease? that is not prevalent in other species. The theory that Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) is related to a deficiency of vitamin C was first proposed by the Canadian physician G. C. Willis in 1953. He found that atherosclerotic plaques form over vitamin-C-starved vascular tissues in both guinea pigs and human beings. In 1989, after the discoveries of the Lp(a) cholesterol molecule (circa 1964) and its lysine binding sites (circa 1987), Linus Pauling and his associate Matthias Rath formulated a unified theory of heart disease and invented a cure. Vitamin C and lysine (and proline) in large amounts become Lp(a) binding inhibitors that restore vascular health and are patented to destroy atherosclerotic plaques.
Chronic scurvy. Heart disease is a misnomer; the underlying disease process reduces the supply of blood to the heart and other organs leading to angina ("heart cramp"), heart attack and stroke. The disease is characterized by scab-like build-ups that grow on the walls of blood vessels. The correct terminology for this disease process is chronic scurvy, a slower form of the classic vitamin C deficiency disease.
The hypothesis that CVD is an ascorbic acid (vitamin C) deficiency disease was first conceived and tested in Canada. Willis devised a method of photographing plaques with X-rays and observed that atherosclerotic plaques were not uniformly distributed throughout the vascular system; rather these "blockages" are concentrated near the heart, where arteries are constantly bent or squeezed.
Another Canadian, Paterson, had found that the tissues of heart patients were generally depleted of vitamin C, and it was well known that vitamin C is required for strong and healthy arteries. Willis reasoned that only the mechanical stress caused by the pulse could explain the typical pattern of atherosclerosis. To Willis, the body was laying down plaque precisely where it was needed in order to stabilize the vascular system.
By the late 1980s, medical researchers had made several intriguing discoveries.
First came the discovery that heart disease begins with a lesion, a crack or stress fracture, in the arterial wall. The question became, and remains, as to the cause of these lesions in human beings since they do not arise in most other animals. Then a variant of the so-called "bad" LDL cholesterol called lipoprotein(a), or Lp(a) for short, was studied and found to be really bad. Lp(a) is sticky because of receptors on the surface of the molecule called lysine binding sites. Work that led to the 1987 Nobel prize in medicine discovered that lysine (and proline) binding sites cause the formation of atherosclerotic plaques. Then, Beisiegel et. al. in Germany examined plaques post mortem and found only Lp(a), not ordinary LDL cholesterol.
Lp(a) was the genetic difference between beings that suffer cardiovascular disease and those that do not. Lp(a) had evolved only in species that do not make their own vitamin C - e.g. humans and guinea pigs.
Pauling and Rath repeated the earlier Willis experiments, but this time they monitored Lp(a). They discovered that it becomes elevated in guinea pigs deprived of vitamin C, but not in the controls. These experiments connected elevated-Lp(a) with low serum vitamin C. They realized that in most species, sufficient ascorbic acid will prevent stress fractures, but in those species that suffer chronic scurvy, Lp(a) had evolved to patch cracked blood vessels.
As chronic scurvy progresses, the liver produces more Lp(a) molecules. As the number of Lp(a) molecules increases, they tend to deposit on top of existing plaque formations. When the healing process overshoots, the arteries narrow and the flow of blood is reduced.
This problem has a solution. The Lp(a) molecule has a finite number of lysine binding sites - points of attachment to lysine. Pauling?s invention - the cure for heart disease - is to increase the serum concentration of the amino acid lysine enough to make the Lp(a) unattractive. As more lysine enters the blood stream, the probability increases that floating Lp(a) molecules will bind with it (rather than with the patches of plaques growing on the arterial walls.)
After all the Lp(a) molecule?s binding receptors are filled with the free lysine floating in the blood, the Lp(a) molecule becomes as harmless as ordinary LDL cholesterol.
Pauling and Rath called the substances that treat chronic scurvy and destroy existing plaques Lp(a) binding inhibitors. Vitamin C, to increase collagen production and to improve the health and strength of arteries, and lysine, to prevent and to dissolve Lp(a) plaques, are the primary binding inhibitors. These substances taken together are clinically effective.
Linus Pauling believed that chronic scurvy can be prevented with an orthomolecular daily intake of between 3,000 to 10,000 mg or more vitamin C. This amount approximates what the animals synthesize, and matching animal production is the reason Pauling ingested 18,000 mg daily.
Pauling and Rath's invention for destroying existing atherosclerotic plaques is the large amount of another essential nutrient, the amino acid lysine. Pauling filmed a video lecture in which he recommended that heart patients take between 2,000 and 6,000 mg of lysine daily with their vitamin C (more if serum Lp(a) is elevated). Neither vitamin C nor lysine have any known lethal dose.
The Lp(a) binding inhibitors become the Pauling Therapy for heart disease only at high dosages, between vitamin 3 to 18 g ascorbic acid and 3 to 6 g lysine. In his video, Pauling recounts the first cases where his high vitamin C and lysine therapy quickly resolved advanced cardiovascular disease in humans. The effect is so pronounced, and the inhibitors are so nontoxic, that Pauling doubted a clinical study was even necessary.
Recently, the amino acid proline was found to be an even more effective Lp(a) binding inhibitor than lysine in vitro. Adding between .5 and 2 g proline may be of significant additional benefit.
When serum Lp(a) is elevated, Lp(a) binding inhibitors can profoundly interfere with the disease process. Binding inhibitor formulas that include proline have been documented to lower Lp(a) in six to 14 months. In cases where Lp(a) is not reduced, binding inhibitors become even more important to neutralize Lp(a) regardless of their effect on serum Lp(a).
Recently a reevaluation of the Framingham Heart study that Lp(a) and not ordinary LDL is highly predictive of CVD and Oxford found that elevated Lp(a) increases the risk of heart attack and stroke by 70%.
The on-going lack of scientific curiosity or interest by organized medicine in the Pauling/Rath theory and Pauling's high-dose therapy may well be recognized as the greatest lapse of the 20th century.

Flax Seed Hulls for Immune Enhancement

This overlooked ‘waste product’ may be the cancer-fighting breakthrough of the century

It was one of those moments that makes working for HSI so rewarding and exciting. I had received an email out of the blue, telling me about a new discovery with results that were nothing short of astounding...

Stage 4 cancer patients cancer free within two months.

Tumor metastasis reduced by 82 percent.1

A human study in which 31 percent of cancer cells were flat out killed. In thirty days.2

In another study, mice fed this substance ended up with half the tumors of the control group.3

Oh, and the incredible results weren’t limited to cancer. People with Type 2 diabetes have stopped needing shots of insulin. Men with enlarged prostates have started sleeping through the night.

This intriguing email was from Wendy Selvig of the AIDS Research Assistance Institute––a non-profit organization in Mansfield, TX. And as much as Wendy’s email got my heart racing, it was tempered with a strong dose of skepticism. With HSI’s worldwide reputation for uncovering the best health breakthroughs, we receive word of new products every single day. And we are extremely careful about choosing only the very best to introduce to you.

So I immediately picked up the phone and gave Wendy a call. And the story she told me—of an all-natural disease-killing dynamo backed up by some very impressive science—was astounding.

But it was the source of this miracle cure that just about made me drop the phone.

The latest breakthrough in cancer treatment is...flax?!

Wait, wake up; I can hear you snoring. Of course you’ve heard of flax seed. Nothing new there, right? But, this isn’t the same flax seed you’ve been seeing on the health food store shelves. In fact, it’s not flax seed at all.

The breakthrough that takes aim at cancer cells like a heat-seeking missile is Concentrated Flax Hull Lignans.

Concentrated Flax Hull Lignans are not flax seeds. Rather, they are concentrated directly—using a special process—from flax seed shells, or hulls, which typically don’t make it into the bags of flax seed in the store.

Which is a shame, because it turns out the vast majority of the disease-fighting lignans in the flax seed are located in the hull that encases the seed.

The nutrients contained in flax seeds are highly concentrated in the shells—one teaspoon of Concentrated Flax Hull Lignans contains the nutritional equivalent of two gallons of flax seed. Yes, gallons. And flax seed oil? Forget it. There are practically no lignans contained in the oil.

You might be wondering what these lignans are, exactly. Lignans are a group of chemical compounds found in plants. They’re one of the major classes of phytoestrogens (you might have seen that word before in discussions about soy), which are chemicals that act as antioxidants. Flax seed is the richest source of lignans in the plant kingdom, containing up to 800 times more than any other plant source. There are 27 different lignans in the flax seed and scientists believe they all work together to provide their amazing health benefits.

The major lignan in flax seed is called secoisolariciresinol diglucoside (SDG). It’s actually a lignan precursor, which means its power isn’t unlocked until it is metabolized by your body. In the intestines, SDG becomes two lignans. These lignans have the power to wipe out cancer, as well as do battle against diabetes, shrink enlarged prostates, boost the immune system…in fact, as my research went on, I found there’s not much these lignans can’t do.

A new process unlocks this superfood’s disease-fighting prowess

Though scientists have known for some time that the flax seed hulls have an amazing nutritional profile, they’ve been at a loss as to how to unlock those nutrients. Finally, a farmer by the name of Curtis Rangeloff invented a chemical-free method of mechanically separating the lignan-rich hulls from the rest of the flax.

The Concentrated Flax Hull Lignans sold through the AIDS Research Institute boast a pure lignan content of up to 65 percent. Each scoop of the product contains 150-300 mg of SDG per serving. That’s 70 times the amount of SDG typically contained in the same amount of traditional ground flax seed.

In addition to their lignan content, flax seed hulls contain high levels of omega-3s, as well as off-the-charts antioxidants. To put it in perspective—kale has one of the highest ORAC values (this is the measurement of a food’s antioxidant content) at 1,770 per 100 grams. Concentrated Flax Hull Lignans? They come in at a whopping 19,600 per 100 grams. The hulls also contain 4.3g of fiber and 2.8g of protein in each tablespoon.

And while the nutritional value of Concentrated Flax Hull Lignans is certainly a bonus, the true value of the product is in its promise as a potent cancer-killer.

The evidence I found for SDG’s effects on cancer is nothing short of incredible. The most exciting study was carried out in Canada on a group of postmenopausal women with newly diagnosed breast cancer.

Each day for a month, the women in the test group ate a flaxseed muffin containing a predetermined concentration of SDG. After only one month, the growth of the cancer cells was reduced by 34.2%. Even better, 31% of cancer cells were completely killed, and the expression of the cancer growth receptor Her2 (c-erB2) decreased by 71%.2

Her2 is part of a family of genes that help to regulate cell growth. Some breast cancers, for reasons no one really understands, undergo a gene amplification. So, instead of having two gene copies of the Her2 gene as in a normal cell, there are multiple copies.

This results in cell growth regulation going haywire. Tumors grow more quickly, are more aggressive, and are less sensitive to chemotherapy. This can also occur in other cancers such as ovarian cancer and stomach cancer. It seems that SDG is able to hinder this process considerably.

Driving cancer cells to mass suicide

In two studies on breast cancer cells implanted into immune deficient mice, flax lignans again proved deadly to cancer. Both tumor growth and metastasis were significantly reduced. In one of the studies, metastasis to the lungs was reduced by 82 percent. The average number of tumors was also considerably lower in the test group than in the control group.1

The promising studies don’t stop at breast cancer. A study in California demonstrated that SDG reduced risk of endometrial cancer in some women by 32 percent. This reduced risk was most evident among postmenopausal women who consumed high levels of both isoflavones and lignans.4 Other studies have shown similar reduced risk for uterine and ovarian cancers.

A clinical trial in Canada found that higher dietary lignan intake was linked to considerable reduction in colorectal cancer risk.5 And, according to studies with human colon cancer cells, lignans stunt the growth of tumor cells and actually drive them to what can only be described as mass suicide.6

Supplementation with SDG reduced tumors significantly in mice with melanoma. The average number of tumors in the control group was 62, while the average number in the groups of mice receiving SDG was around half that. Tumor size was also decreased.3

Even the Mayo Clinic, the American Cancer Society, and the FDA acknowledge the cancer-fighting power of flax lignans. The Mayo Clinic says flax seed lignans may inhibit the growth of some breast cancers, and the American Cancer Society cites a study in which the growth rate of cancer cells was slowed in men suffering from prostate cancer.

Perhaps most surprising of all is the support flax lignans have gotten from, get this, the FDA. Apparently even the FDA can’t miss a sure thing. They have stated that flax seed lignans have anti-tumor activity and are potentially the richest source of phytoestrogens, and that their significant ability to prevent cancer is recognized by the National Cancer Institute.7

A survivor’s tale: Concentrated Flax Hull Lignans beat back cancer for ‘hopeless’ cases

Personally, I find that one thing speaks even more loudly than the many exciting studies I’ve talked about so far. And that is the words straight from the mouths of people who have seen their lives changed as a result of including flax lignans in their diets.

A 52-year-old woman started taking Concentrated Flax Hull Lignans two years after she was diagnosed with bone cancer. At that point, she was only able to walk with crutches, and painfully at that. After just one month with the lignans, she stopped taking her pain medication, ditched the crutches, and found her energy level returning to normal.

And then there’s the story of 84-year-old Tony. Last September, he was told his lung cancer was so advanced that he wouldn’t make it to Christmas. His daughter-in-law was distraught, knowing her daughter’s December wedding would be a sad event without him. She learned about the Concentrated Flax Hull Lignans from a friend and had some sent to Tony.

Come December, he was a happy guest at his granddaughter’s wedding. When one of his doctors found out that he had been treating his cancer with Concentrate Flax Hull Lignans, she became angry with him. She was convinced that the cancer had spread throughout both lungs and his esophagus. She thought more “aggressive steps” should have been taken.

However, the doctor had to eat her words when a scan showed the cancer had not spread and actually was reduced to one tiny nodule in his lung. This was after Tony had been taking the Concentrated Flax Hull Lignans for only six months.

These are just two of the many stories that demonstrate the incredible healing power of flax lignans.

If its power against cancer isn’t enough, that’s just the start

Amazingly, the scientific evidence for Concentrated Flax Hull Lignans doesn’t stop at its cancer-fighting abilities. Diets rich in foods containing plant lignans have long been associated with reduced risk of cardiovascular disease. In a 12-year study of Finnish men, it was found that those with the highest intake of plant lignans were significantly less likely to die from cardiovascular disease than their counterparts who ate the least amount of foods containing plant lignans.8

Flax lignans have also been shown to suppress the development of atherosclerosis (chronic inflammation of the arteries due to an accumulation of plaque) in a study on rabbits. The development of atherosclerosis in rabbits treated with the lignans was reduced by 34.4 percent. The lignans also lowered LDL cholesterol and raised levels of HDL cholesterol.9 In a study concerning Native American postmenopausal women, it was found that flax seed lowered LDL cholesterol by 10%.10 Mind you, that was just with flax seed, not the nutritionally rich hulls.

There is discussion in the scientific community that flax lignans may help to lower sugar levels in people with diabetes. While there are no specific studies to this effect, people who are living with diabetes have been vocal about the results they’ve seen taking Concentrated Flax Hull Lignans.

One woman noticed that her blood sugar has been regular, and that she’s been feeling healthier in general.

A 26-year-old man who was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes a few years ago has been struggling to manage his illness ever since. Unable to keep his blood sugar down, he watched helplessly as it regularly spiked to 600, despite taking 40 units of insulin with every shot. Two weeks after he began including Concentrated Flax Hull Lignans in his diet, he noticed a change in how he felt. Now, his blood sugar stays under 200, and he hasn’t had to give himself a shot in two months.

Finally, no more late-night bathroom trips

If you’re living with an enlarged prostate, you know what agony it can be. A recent study demonstrated that flax lignans could reduce prostate size. Rats given the human equivalent of 50 mg per day of SDG (remember, Concentrated Flax Hull Lignans contains up to 300 mg per serving) had significantly smaller prostates than those without the SDG supplementation. The SDG didn’t just stop prostate growth––it actually helped reduce the size of the prostate.11

Lee, who describes himself as having a “bad prostate,” has been using Concentrated Flax Hull Lignans for a couple of months. He has been making less and less trips to the bathroom in the middle of the night, and says he generally feels better. His wife is happy, too-with Lee getting so little sleep, he’d been “a real grouch,” and she jokes that she may keep him if the Concentrated Flax Hull Lignans keep working!

G.E. wrote about her husband, Hugh, who suffers from both an enlarged prostate and irregular heartbeat. She was amazed when, after only two weeks, there was a complete reversal in Hugh’s nightly routine. She said he doesn’t get up more than once a night, and his heart has been beating steadily.

Previously a candidate for a pacemaker, Hugh reports his doctor has not mentioned the surgery since he started taking the Concentrated Flax Hull Lignans. Rather, his doctor was flat-out astonished at his progress, stating he’d never seen such a dramatic improvement. At 71, Hugh is now “bouncing along and mowing and putting up hay and working with his horses and cattle.”

Though there are no conclusive studies concerning flax lignans and prostate cancer, there are a few that are promising. In a trial using mice, flax inhibited the growth and development of prostate cancer. In a study of 25 men who were scheduled for prostatectomy, supplementation with flax brought significant changes in serum cholesterol, total testosterone, and the free androgen index. Researchers concluded that flax lignans may be a very beneficial food for men battling prostate cancer.12

Fight the flu with a super-charged immune system

All of what I’ve just reported was enough to convince me to buy my own supply of Concentrated Flax Hull Lignans. But, as I delved even deeper, I began to uncover more amazing benefits to a diet that includes flax lignans.

The effect of flax lignans on the immune system is well documented. The AIDS Research Assistance Institute, which sells the Concentrated Flax Hull Lignans, is a nonprofit organization. All of the proceeds from the sale of the product go to bringing it to orphanages and clinics in Africa, where HIV and AIDS run rampant.

What they’ve seen there is nothing short of incredible. Children who were drastically underweight are gaining both weight and energy, and aren’t getting the colds and flu infections they once constantly suffered from, according to Emma Fishlock, a nurse working in Swaziland. These children are rising from their deathbeds to return to school.

In a 90-day anecdotal test on 100 people with HIV (75 percent exhibiting full AIDS symptoms), 97 percent reported positive health changes, with energy and appetites increasing. Most amazing is the fact that, after 6 weeks, 28 percent had viral loads drop to non-detectible levels. Their super-charged immune systems were fighting the virus like they never had before.13 And it works against another virus, too…

As an HSI member, you know that flu shots don’t actually do much for preventing the flu, and at their worst are actually harmful. And flu drugs? Forget it! The virus builds resistance almost as soon as the drugs are put on the market. In 2005, 14.5 percent of flu viruses were resistant to major flu drugs. That might not sound like a lot, but compare it to the fact that only 1.9 percent of flu viruses were resistant just one year earlier.

Luckily, it seems flax lignans can do the same thing for influenza that they are doing for the HIV virus in Africa.

When a virus enters the cells of the body, it stimulates hormones that activate the gene for p53. When this gene is activated, it actually induces virally infected cells to shut down, thereby preventing the virus from spreading. If this is activated shortly after infection, further viral replication is completely stopped.

Based upon recent studies, influenza virus infections can be stopped in this way. Flax lignans, through a series of interactions with the inner workings of the body’s cells, can increase the level of p53 in cells. Long story short, flax lignans can actually help to both prevent flu infections and fight those that already exist.

And the amazing abilities of flax lignans don’t end there, Canadian study also suggests that SDG may have a therapeutic role in treating lupus. A Dutch human study showed that flax lignans could be the answer for men and women with hair loss and thinning hair. Yet another, this one on rats, showed potential for liver protection.
