WE TAKE THE FOLLOWING FROM A VARIETY OF CREDIBLE SOURCES:
You can usually do so with a tea-spoon full of bicarbonate of soda a day, which costs a penny or so. Acidic bodies suffer more from almost all diseases, including viruses and cancer. The human immune system works best when alkaline. You can test this your acidity with PH papers sold at better pharmacies.
Asparagus contains the protein family histones. These help control cell growth and thus work against cancer, as a preventative as well as potential healer . According to the National Cancer Institute, asparagus also contains a lot of glutathione, one of the most potent anti-carcinogens and antioxidants.
One way to get the benefits easily and regularly is to puree either cooked or canned asparagus , makes no difference, Eat some tablespoons a couple of times a day. (Keep refrigerated.)
According to a Japanese researcher, yellow skin bananas with dark spots on it are 8 times more effective in enhancing the property of white blood cells than green skin version. In other words, the riper the banana, the stronger their anti-cancer immune system boost.
Over-ripe bananas were found to be the most effective health booster measured against grapes, apples, water melons, pineapples, pears and persimmons. Apart from increasing increasing white blood cells, they also provided the anti-cancer substance TNF.
Recommended is eating 1 to 2 bananas a day to enhance to diseases including colds and flu .
To the degree there is a universal Fountain of Youth, researchers say it is summed up with those two words. It will add an average of five years, minimum, and the duration overall will be healthier.
While little short of a nip and tuck will make you look younger, calorie restriction, as it is called, is as close to a real Fountain of Youth as any known technique comes. Even scientists who are cautious about anti-aging hype say it works, both by cutting risks for some diseases and by allowing all body cells, somehow, to hang in there longer.
Saint Louis University researcher Edward Weiss says “calorie restriction,” as it is called, is proven effective as an inhibitor of heart disease, cancer and diabetes. Other researchers have suggested positive results on a wider variety of diseases and disorders.
Generally available in Japanese and Chinese cooking, researchers at New York Medical Center have found the mushrooms shrink cancerous tumors by up to 75%. The researchers combined minute amounts of concentrated maitake extract with anti-cancer proteins used to boost the immune system known as interferons. Given to patients, it activated an enzyme that controls the growth of cancer, stopping their cancer from spreading.
Maitake mushrooms alone slow the growth of cancer cells when used at high doses. The combination with interferons allowed for lower doses to be effective. Researchers believe its active component is grifolan, a beta-glucan polysaccharide (a molecule made of linked sugar molecules), that activates the cellular immune system.
Studies are underway on treatments for a wide range of other diseases, including diabetes, high blood pressure, AIDS and liver damage. Some research demonstrated maitake reduces hypertension by up to 20%t in 75% of patients.
Sometimes called “hen of the woods,” the mushrooms with fan-shaped caps grows on trunks or stumps of trees in temperate regions of North America, Europe, and Japan. A mature plant can weigh up to 20 pounds.
Research in peer-reviewed medical journals claims that the compound boosts natural killer (NK) cells by 300% within weeks of using it. Although relatively expensive, the evidence indicates efficacy with viral conditions and cancer — it’s the #1 prescribed medicine in Japan for soft tissue tumors. It particularly has a good performance record in reducing viral load and increasing white blood cell count.
NK cells locate and kill disease cells such as cancer cells. Cancer patients almost always have a suppressed number of NK cells. MGN-3 increases the production of NK cells and continues to keep the NK cell level elevated until use is halted. It also enhances B-cell and T-cell activity.
A warning, however: It does not work universally for everyone nor for all cancer. It is simply something that one tries out if needed.
MGN-3 is made from rice bran treated with polysaccharides from shitake, kawaratake, and surehrotake mushrooms.
