Dr. Isaac Eliaz – The Survival Paradox, galectin-3, modified citrus pectin, and integrative cancer therapy

“Because everything is changeable, everything is possible.” – Dr. Isaac Eliaz

Isaac Eliaz, MD is a leading expert in the field of integrative medicine, specializing in cancer, detoxification, immunity, and complex conditions. He is a respected physician, researcher, best-selling author, educator, and mind-body practitioner.

Dr. Eliaz partners with leading research institutes including Harvard, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Columbia, and others, to co-author studies on integrative therapies for cancer, heavy metal toxicity, and more. He is the founder and Medical Director of Amitabha Medical Clinic in Santa Rosa, CA, where he has pioneered the use of therapeutic apheresis as an adjunctive blood filtration treatment for detox and chronic degenerative conditions.

I recently went down the rabbit hole on modified citrus pectin, which lead me to Dr. Eliaz’s research and his book The Survival Paradox.

Dr. Eliaz is one of the world’s foremost experts on galectin-3 and modified citrus pectin. Galectin-3 is an essential survival molecule that when overexpressed promotes inflammation, aging, and chronic diseases like cancer. Modified citrus pectin has been demonstrated to block its harmful effects.

By disrupting galectin-3 interactions, MCP creates an environment that is inhospitable to inflammation, fibrosis, hypoxia, infection, and cancer cell growth (Source).

Modified citrus pectin has also been found to be helpful with pain relief and is known to bind to heavy metals and help remove them from the body.

Dr. Isaac Eliaz is a brilliant physician and researcher with a big heart. He has so much knowledge and wisdom to share. Don’t miss this interview!

Does regular citrus pectin have the same effect?
Regrettably, we did not discuss this in the interview. Here’s the answer. Pectin is a type of fiber, a long chain of carbohydrates, that stays in the gut. Modified citrus pectin is reduced to a much lower molecular weight, up to 100 times smaller, which allows it to pass into the bloodstream and bind to galectin-3. Some modified citrus pectin products on the market are not produced correctly and are not absorbed into the bloodstream. Econugenics Pectasol has been proven to do so and is the gold standard product, tested for over 25 years in 75+ clinical and pre-clinical studies.
