How Beta Glucan Supercharges Your Immune System

This week’s interview features Beta Glucan expert AJ Lanigan. Beta Glucan is a natural polysaccharide found in many foods like barley, oats, mushrooms and yeast, and is the most studied immunomodulator on earth with over 140,000 published studies on PubMed and 100 current trials on ClinicalTrials.gov. In layman’s terms, Beta Glucan activates and enhances your immune systems response to invaders like bacteria, viruses and cancerous cells, which is a good thing.

AJ has an extensive background in pharmaceutical and immunology, as well as drug and supplement research. Some of you will recognize him from the Truth About Cancer series. AJ is quite the character. He has a unique way of taking complex scientific concepts, like the inner workings of your immune system, and making them easy to understand. And he does it all with a sweet South Carolina twang. Enjoy!

Curcumin Beats Chemo for Reducing Colon Cancer Stem Cells

There’s a new study comparing the effectiveness of curcumin to chemo drug 5-FU, on colorectal cancer cells. The researchers found that one specific type of high-absorption curcumin was able to reduce the spread of cancer cells and potentially increase the effectiveness of chemotherapy in the treatment of advanced colon cancer. They also discovered something disturbing about 5-FU.

My Anti-Cancer Supplement Protocol Recommended By My Nutritionist

A major ally in my quest to heal cancer naturally was Clinical Nutritionist / Master Herbalist John Smothers at Integrative Wellness & Research Center in Memphis, TN.
He was the first person to tell me I was doing the right thing by rejecting chemo and radically changing my diet and lifestyle. Words cannot explain how exciting that was for me…
Along with a strict anti-cancer diet he recommended a lot of different supplements to support healing in my body.

As you can imagine, the question about supplements comes up a lot.
“What did you you take, what brands, how much, how often?”
I’ve been hesitant to get into those details because some of the supplements I took were specific to my body’s needs and may not be beneficial for every person with cancer.

So recently I sat down with John and asked him to put together an updated cancer supplement protocol that I could share with you.

These are the fundamental supplements that he recommends for all his clients with cancer (including me), along with strict diet modification.

The Best Exercise For Your Immune System:
Rebounding!

Back in 2004 when I first started to research natural therapies I read every natural cancer survival testimony I could find. I found many common threads and one of them was jumping on a mini trampoline, aka Rebounding. I figured since so many natural survivors and health practitioners were doing it there must be something to it…

Here’s a video I made about rebounding along with a detailed blog post about the science behind rebounding.

Detox Your Life / Products I Love / Showerwise Shower Filter

The Showerwise Shower Filter

Is there anyone in the world that doesn’t love to take long, hot, steamy showers?
No. There is not.
Which is why this is going to bum you out:
Taking long hot showers exposes you to more toxic chemicals than actually drinking 2 liters of the same water!
This is because toxins evaporate out of the water into steam and are inhaled directly into your lungs. They are also absorbed through your skin.
Chlorine alone has been linked to allergies, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, heart disease, strokes, cancer, and even premature aging of your skin.

The Showerwise Shower Filter  removes 95% of chlorine as well as iron, lead, mercury, hydrogen sulfide, etc. It also inhibits bacterial, fungal and mildew growth.
I never thought my shower steam had an “odor” until I installed our Showerwise filter.  I noticed right away that the smell of the shower steam was different. In fact there was no smell at all. The chlorine odor (and who knows what else) was gone.  It comes with a massaging shower head and the filter lasts up to18 months.
