2nd Generation GcMAF A clever sales ploy, but misleading....

July 29, 2015

 

I am posting stories related to GcMAF because it is current news hot topic. I do not endorse the product and there are plenty of alternative wholistic practitioners that are not on board with the product. It is laboratory produced and I question products that are produced in lab vs real foods.

Does anyone one know if GcMAF or related molecules are found naturally in food?


 

2nd Generation GcMAF

A clever sales ploy, but misleading...

Their website initially looked like a copy and paraphrase of ours, with the same picture on it we had two years earlier, so we wish to state we have no connection whatsoever with Saisei-Mirai in Japan or their “Second Generation” GcMAF.

In our opinion their “second generation” phrase is a clever sales ploy, but misleading. Our bodies have been making the same GcMAF for some thousands of years, and there is no “Second Generation” in GcMAF.

A participant asked us to test this Saisei-Mirai substance, because on its arrival it was yellow in appearance. This was unexpected, as the GcMAF produced by ourselves and by the research scientists for 20 years now is a clear colourless liquid.

The participant was initially led to believe the “Second generation” would cost about €70 for 6 x 0.5ml vials, but actually paid an invoice for over €700 euros.

He was also led to believe by their published document “GcMAF: our next generation immunotherapy” that their definition of “Second Generation GcMAF” was that the diseased patient’s own blood was used to make it.

But no blood was asked of him; the yellow coloured substance simply arrived.

So by the Japanese company’s own definition, it seems their “Second Generation” GcMAF is not second generation.

We find this paper very odd: diseased blood is unable to make GcMAF, as any nagalase enzyme has removed the essential components required to make it.

GcMAF is a highly conserved molecule and is the same regardless of who it comes from, meaning that there is no advantage to using your own blood as the starting point. Do they know what they are doing?

Is this the reason they state in their paper they treated only 137 people last year against our nearly 3,000?

We have a capable, well equipped laboratory. On examination of the material using analytical techniques including Western blot, electrophoresis, SDS-PAGE, and Total Protein Quantification, the results showed very high levels of immunoglobulin IgG, which are parts of blood that we and GcMAF research scientists both ensure are excluded to make GcMAF pure and sterile.

So in our view its a half generation substance, because they’ve done much less than half the job. Electrophoresis results indicate it is mainly whole blood centrifuged (ie serum).

On their website the Japanese company appear to be unsure of the amount of GcMAF in their yellow substance, and therefore give a range. It gave us the same problem: there are too many blood constituents remaining for an exact quantity to be directly measured.

In our opinion this makes Japanese GcMAF unsuitable for people where the quantity must be accurately determined: eg autistic children, who often start on a 1ng dose, or CFS/ME, XMRV Lime disease, HIV or AIDS, where small, known doses are required to ensure dormant viruses are not made aggressive.

The Japanese company say in emails it is difficult to test their GcMAF and therefore don’t test every batch as we do. We agree: the presence of other substances make all tests much more difficult, and testing GcMAF is a time consuming, highly specialised and expensive process.

The definition of GcMAF has been laid out by Dr Yamamoto, scores of other scientists who have made it, and the two production companies that properly tested it.

GcMAF is the result of a 22 step production process and ends up as a clear liquid which is properly activity assayed.

In our opinion Saisei Mirai “GcMAF” does not meet these criteria, and does not meet the definition for GcMAF. All healthy serum should contain some GcMAF. The proper name for their product is therefore Serum.

Of the seven companies who have purported to manufacture GcMAF, only two have ever published internal and independent live cell assay tests.

The only way to test that GcMAF is active is with live macrophage and live cancer cell lines. In the laboratory tests we do on GcMAF batches, we photograph through microscopes as newly activated macrophages eat cancer cells, and in the absence of macrophages, GcMAF turns the cancer cells back into healthy cells. That is how we know a batch is active.

Without those live cell tests, you are paying for an unproven substance. In one company’s case their “GcMAF” exhibited the properties of cheap liquid vitamin D. One product was causing infections around the injection site, clear evidence it is not sterile and contains bacteria. Another company, who had been selling “GcMAF” at €1000 a shot, unusually closed down when their customers, who wasted tens of thousands of euros each, showed that it was inactive.

It goes without saying that if there are no internal, and external independent live cell tests, that product is probably inactive and should be avoided.

INVESTIGATION: Three days before Dr. Bradstreet was found dead in a river, U.S. govt. agents raided his research facility to seize a breakthrough cancer treatment called GcMAF

July 28, 2015

 

I am posting stories related to GcMAF because it is current news hot topic.  I do not endorse the product and there are plenty of alternative wholistic practitioners that are not on board with the product.  It is laboratory produced and I question products that are produced in lab vs real foods. 

Does anyone one know if GcMAF or related molecules are found naturally in food?

 

The history of the suppression of medical science in America is a long one, filled with true accounts of pioneering doctors and clinicians being threatened, intimidated and even assassinated in order to bury emerging cures and keep the "sick care" industry in control. (The American Medical Association, for example, has been found guilty by the U.S. federal courts of a conspiracy to destroy the chiropractic industry, by the way.)

Over the last few days, we've learned that before being found shot in the chest and floating in the river, pioneering medical researcher Dr. Bradstreet was working with a little-known molecule that occurs naturally in the human body. Called, "GcMAF", this molecule has the potential to be a universal cancer cure for many people. It has also been shown to reverse signs of autism in the vast majority of patients receiving the treatment.

While GcMAF is perfectly legal as a treatment in dozens of advanced nations around the world, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has outlawed it, calling it an "unapproved drug." It is with this designation -- an effort to suppress the forward progress of medical science -- that the U.S. government conducted a raid on Dr. Bradstreet's clinic, specifically seeking to confiscate GcMAF in order to shut down his research and halt his treatment of patients. Meanwhile, Big Pharma gets special permission to unleash untested, experimental drugs on the public as long as those drugs earn sufficient profits.

In this article, I summarize the videos, articles and documents covering GcMAF and the mysterious death of Dr. Bradstreet. An exhaustive investigation needs to be pursued on this matter, possibly involving private investigators. The timing and manner of Dr. Bradstreet's death seems highly suspicious, especially in light of the many other holistic doctors who have recently been found dead under mysterious circumstances. (Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez died just days ago...)

Motive to murder medical researchers and suppress a promising cancer treatment breakthrough

Is there a motive for the murder of pioneering cancer researchers working on a possible universal cancer cure? Of course there is... it's the most common motive in the world: MONEY.

A universal cancer cure would destroy the profitability of the highly lucrative cancer industry and collapse the American Cancer Society, hospitals, oncology clinics and pharmaceutical companies that depend on chemotherapy revenues to stay profitable. Key to their profitability is the inescapable fact that conventional cancer treatments simply don't work most of the time, creating a reliable profit stream of repeat business from patients who are never cured (by design).

Would the cancer industry murder doctors to protect its profits? Of course it would. The industry kills patients as a routine part of its business operations! For example, an oncologist named Farid Fata was recently sentenced to 56 years in prison for falsely diagnosing patients with cancer so that he could sell them chemotherapy treatments they didn't need. See the article Cancer doctors 'fess up to making false diagnoses just to make more money.

Click here to search for "cancer false diagnosis" at GoodGopher.com, the search engine for truth seekers.

INVESTIGATION: Here's what we know so far

Multiple hat tips to all the outstanding citizen journalists, video creators and bloggers who have created the items cited below:

U.S. govt. search warrant document served against Dr. Jeffrey Bradstreet to confiscate GcMAF from his research facility.

Video that connects the dots between Dr. Bradstreet, GcMAF, cancer cures and the suppression of medical science by the U.S. government.

Video detailing the Dr. Bradstreet search warrant, served June 30, during which the U.S. government seized GcMAF from Dr. Bradstreet's research clinic:

EzekielDiet.com story that covers the apparent series of murders of holistic doctors, many of whom are working on advanced treatment protocols that render high-profit sectors of conventional medicine OBSOLETE:

Yet another doctor was just found murdered inside his home here on the East Coast of Florida. This makes six doctors to be found dead in the last month just from this region of the country alone. Four out of the six were found dead here in Florida. We lost the holistic Dr. Teresa Sievers, MD, who was found murdered in her Florida home just weeks ago. We've also lost the alternative Dr. Jeff Bradstreet, MD, who was found in a river with a gunshot to his chest. He'd recently moved to Georgia from Florida. We've also lost the Osteopath. Dr. Riley, who was found in Georgia at her home; just a few hours from the Florida border. She was found with a gunshot wound to her head.

Now we've lost Dr. Schwartz MD, who was found murdered in his home, on Sunday, July 19th, 2015. This was four weeks to the day after the death of the first physician: (Dr. Bradstreet MD) who I broke the story on a month ago. His family is still seeking answers as to what happened to him and they're some of the kindest people I know. The latest MD, Dr. Schwartz, in the picture above, lived just north of the fit, healthy, holistic Dr. Hedendal; who was the second doctor to be found dead this past Father's Day, in Boca Raton. This was the same day that Dr. Holt died at the age of 33. Both were fathers; and again, both men died here in Florida on June 21st, 2015.


SCIENCE.NaturalNews.com entry describing the extraordinary benefits of GcMAF in a published study:

Stepwise incubation of purified Gc protein with immobilized beta-galactosidase and sialidase generated probably the most potent macrophage activating factor (termed GcMAF) ever discovered, which produces no adverse effect in humans...

After about 16-22 administrations (approximately 3.5-5 months) of GcMAF, these patients had insignificantly low serum enzyme levels equivalent to healthy control enzyme levels, ranging from 0.38 to 0.63 nmole/min/mg protein, indicating eradication of the tumors. This therapeutic procedure resulted in no recurrence for more than 4 years.


In other words, the administration of GcMAF eradicated tumors and left patients cancer-free for 4+ years with no additional treatment!

Both U.S. and UK governments desperately seizing all supply, shutting down clinics, even as millions die from cancer every decade...

UK govt. admission that GcMAF was on track to being commercialized as a pioneering cancer treatment, so they had to confiscate it!

GcMAF (Globulin component Macrophage Activating Factor), a blood product, claims to treat a range of conditions including cancer, HIV and autism...

More than 10,000 vials were seized at this site and production of this unlicensed medicine has now ceased. These products were sold through various European websites and UK patients may have bought it from one of these websites. We are working with colleagues in other countries to alert them to the potential risks. Our investigations are ongoing and we have received no reports to date of side effects caused by this product.


That same page lists some of the websites where GcMAF had been available for purchase:

www.GcMAF.eu
www.immunobiotech.eu
www.immunocentre.eu
www.petgcmaf.com
www.firstimmune.fr
www.firstimmune.de
www.firstimmune.it
www.gcmaf.gr
www.gcmaf.se
www.gcmaf.es
www.gcmaf.ru
www.gcmaf.pl

GcMAF is readily available as a medical treatment in Japan. This site explains:

GcMAF (Gc Protein derived Macrophage Activating Factor) - Gc MAF treatment is a highly effective macrophage activating therapy, used to stimulate the immune system and activate macrophages so that they can destroy cancer cells and other abnormal cells in the body.

From the FAQ page of the treatment clinic:

What exactly is Second Generation GcMAF?
High Dose Second Generation Gc-MAF is produced using our new Patent Pending process which was developed here in Japan by Saisei Mirai in collaboration with Dr Hitoshi Hori and Dr Yoshihiro Uto at the University of Tokushima who have been studying GcMAF for over 20 years. Studies on GcMAF began at the University of Tokushima in 1992, after they were introduced to Dr Nobuto Yamamoto's work and a collaboration began...

Second Generation GcMAF is made using a new and improved 2nd generation method of Gc-MAF production which is 10-20 times more concentrated and is more active and stable than other GcMAF that is currently available. Importantly, this much higher concentration GcMAF has been clinically demonstrated to be largely free of any side effects in the great majority of patients and is much more stable because it is resistant to oxidation.


That same site describes Oral GcMAF as follows: "Oral GcMAF is a form of GcMAF produced from bovine colostrum by Saisei Mirai which was developed in collaboration with Tokushima University."

It also lists the following health conditions as being treatable with GcMAF, potentially a "universal cancer cure" substance:

Gc-MAF and/or oral Colostrum MAF macrophage activation therapy is indicated in the treatment of any diseases where there is immune dysfunction or where the immune system is compromised, such as:

Cancer
Autoimmune diseases
Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV)
Hepatitis B virus (HBV)
Herpes Simplex virus (HSV)
Cystitis
Hepatitis C virus (HCV)
Multiple sclerosis (MS)
Urinary tract infection (UTI)
Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD)
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA)
Endometriosis
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)
Lyme disease (Lyme borreliosis)
IgA deficiency disorder
Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME)
Mycobacteria infections
Parkinson's disease
Tuberculosis
Fibromyalgia
Human papillomavirus (HPV)
Lupus (Systemic lupus erythematosus, SLE)
HIV AIDS
Dengue fever
Pneumonia infection
Warts caused by viral infection
Norovirus
Malaria Influenza virus (flu)
Herpes simplex virus (HSV)
Q fever (Coxiella burnetii)
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
Chicken pox (varicella zoster virus)
Psoriasis
Respiratory tract infections
Ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease
Type 1 diabetes (T1DM), insulin-dependent diabetes (IDDM)
Type 1.5 diabetes, Latent autoimmune diabetes of adults (LADA)


Do you see yet why the medical establishment must SUPPRESS GcMAF and destroy all knowledge of its clinical applications? This one substance holds the potential to render numerous vaccines and pharmaceuticals utterly obsolete.

GcMAF protein described at NaturalHealth365.com:

Researchers and practitioners have demonstrated that GcMAF can reverse diseases that attack the immune system such as: chronic inflammation, bacterial and viral infections, chronic herpes, chronic acne, Lyme disease, fibromyalgia osteoporosis, Hodgkin's, Lupus, MS, Parkinson's and remarkably – autism.

A clinical study out of Italy on 94 children with autism showed that 83 of them made considerable progress while on GcMAF. The most common reported improvements involve:

• Cognitive abilities including attention and focus, learning and understanding, receptiveness and awareness of the environment and both receptive and expressive language gains.

• Social Skills including willingness to interact and communicate with peers.

• Behavior including less hyperactivity, less stereotypical behaviors and improved cooperation and compliance.

In another study of 1500 children with autism, 85% had high levels of viruses and a compromised immune system. All 1500 received weekly GcMAF injections and 70% of the children responded to the treatment with reduced symptoms and another 15% made full recoveries. The other 15% did not respond.

It was stated that the reduction of autistic symptoms is permanent provided that GcMAF has been taken long enough for the body to produce its own GcMAF which typically takes 24 weeks.


The systematic suppression of medical science to protect the lucrative cancer treatment industry (chemotherapy, oncology, radiotherapy, etc.)

ANH-EUROPE.org covers the systematic suppression of advanced cancer treatments and cures:

Back in 1993, Nobuto Yamamoto, then working at Temple University School of Medicine in Philadelphia, PA, USA, first described a remarkable molecule. His paper reported the conversion of vitamin D3 binding protein (DBP, known in humans as Gc) into a potent macrophage-activating factor (MAF), known as Gc-MAF. Macrophages are a key part of the human immune system with two roles: to engulf and destroy pathogens and cellular debris, and to recruit other immune cells to respond to the pathogen.

Gc-MAF hasn't had the benefit of a single patent owner – as a natural molecule, it cannot be patented without being modified – with the will and resources to push it under the noses of the public and health authorities. Dr Yamamoto has run small human trials in breast, prostate and colorectal cancers, with promising results.

David Noakes might just be the person to bring Gc-MAF into the mainstream. He's the CEO of Immuno Biotech Ltd. and spokesperson for First Immune Gc-MAF, a project he describes as, "PhD and BSc biochemists and biomedical scientists... with external doctors, oncologists and scientists who kindly provide advice, committed to bringing some of the increasing number of published but relatively unused medical cures to as many people as we can." At the moment, Noakes and his colleagues are supplying Gc-MAF to 30 countries where it is legal, via a network of "around 300" doctors. Their Gc-MAF is made to extremely high standards, and is being used in ongoing clinical research by Noakes' collaborators and others. Their ultimate goal is to, "Build the case that GcMAF is effective for various illnesses, which will help to make it available to the public".


GcMAF suppliers fighting for survival against a global medical monopoly that profits from disease

MUST-SEE website: http://gcmaf.se/

From the site:

The medical laws have been changed over the last 40 years so that all the brilliant breakthroughs in cancer are denied to the British public. Lord Maurice Saatchi had to watch his wife die, while his doctor told him the only thing he was allowed to prescribe her was chemotherapy, which would shorten her life. He hopes to bring the Medical Innovation Bill to Parliament, so instead of obeying a destructive government law, a doctor will be able to prescribe whatever treatment is best for the patient...

Bad law kills, and Britain has the worst medical laws in Europe. The 1939 Cancer Act makes it illegal to discuss the possibility cancer can be cured, which is partly why 160,000 people die unnecessarily of cancer in Britain every year. Science and treatments are decades ahead of where the medical industry is today. The MHRA's job is to get life saving treatments like GcMAF out to people as quickly as possible. Instead they block them to protect billion dollar Big Pharma monopolies, who also fund the MHRA. Over a hundred thousand lives could be saved every year if the 1939 Cancer Act were repealed, and the MHRA were closed down.

There are 142 eminent scientists who have published GcMAF research papers on the US National Library of Medicine alone.


From the how GcMAF works page:

Your GcMAF empowers your body to cure itself. In a healthy person your own GcMAF has 11 actions discovered so far, including two on cells, three excellent effects on the brain, and 6 on cancer. Amongst these it acts as a "director" of your immune system. But viruses and malignant cells like cancer send out an enzyme called Nagalase that prevents production of your GcMAF: that stops its 11 beneficial effects, and neutralises your immune system. So diseases become chronic, and cancer cells grow unchecked.

Minutes after a receiving a dose, 10 of the body's actions restart. In three weeks of two GcMAF 0.25ml doses a week, your immune system is rebuilt to above normal strength. You need two doses a week for typically 24 weeks for many diseases and early cancers, up to seven one ml doses a week and a year for stage 4 cancers. Your body then takes the disease down without side effects, and successfully in 80% of cases -depending upon how well you follow the protocol under "Treatment Protocol" on this website.

What is GcMAF?
It is a human protein. One week's GcMAF looks like a small raindrop. If properly produced it is perfectly sterile, and a most ethical course for doctors.

GcMAF is therefore a replacement therapy for those who can't make their own. Taking GcMAF replaces the missing part of the immune system, and also acts as the body's own internal medicine.

GcMAF is extracted and isolated; its a 24 step process, and at the end it must have tests to prove its sterility and activity. (If it does not come with published tests, its probably not GcMAF.) One GcMAF has been tested in universities, laboratories and clinics, where, as a result of the testing, consistent activity and sterility have always been found, and been the subject of 40 scientific research papers.

What does GcMAF do?
The GcMAF Conference 2013 showed GcMAF is a far more powerful molecule than thought, both in terms of the science, and doctors' results. In stage 4 cancer, some doctors who use the full protocol, listed on "Treatment Strategies," are saving every patient (if they have not had chemotherapy.) Success can be achieved with all tumour cancers including breast, lung, prostate, pancreatic and melanoma.

GcMAF can eradicate chronic inflammation and viral infections. It is better than antibiotics in many areas, and 25% successful with Autism, 50% or more with Chronic Herpes, Chronic Acne, Chronic cirrhosis of the liver, Chronic kidney disease, Chronic depression, Colitis, Crohn's, Fibromyalgia, Hepatitis, Herpes, LMBBS, ME/CFS, Osteoporosis, Periodontal disease, Psoriasis and various types of Immune dysfunction including allergies. Research shows GcMAF can halt deterioration in Parkinsons, multiple sclerosis (MS), dementia and ALS, and in its role of immune system regulator, can reverse diseases that attack the immune system like Lupus and Arthritis. And is effective with wound healing. Its successful with tumour cancers, and some others.

In addition to rebuilding a depressed immune system, GcMAF:
Inhibits angiogenesis – stops blood supply to tumours
Activates macrophages – phagocytosis and destruction of cancer cells
Apoptosis – suicide of cancer cells
Reverts the cancer cell phenotype to normal (Turns cancer cells into healthy cells)
Reduces the metastatic potential of human cancer cells in culture.
Increases energy production at the mitochondrial level – ME/CFS
Improves human neuronal metabolic activity through cAMP signaling – autism, ME/CFS, MS, ALS
Counters toxic effects including cadmium – ME/CFS

It abolishes neuropathic pain due to neuro-oxidative stress (stress due to the anti-cancer drug oxaliplatin) in the lab. (neurodegenerative diseases and autism that have oxidative stress as a pathogenetic mechanism)
It increases neuronal connectivity by promoting differentiation and the formation of dendrites and neuritis (autism and ME/CFS, where there is a lack of connectivity between neurons).

See the 31 research papers published, particularly Brescia, and the 60 published by others listed under "The science".

80% of terminal stage four tumour cancers cases can be saved (40% if they've had chemo), but usually when they are closely monitored, which is why residential Treatment Centres are being run in Switzerland. If they have three months to live and have not had chemo, almost no one needs to be lost.

The 180 scientists who have published papers on trials of GcMAF selected those in the early stages of cancer and HIV, and reported nearly 100 percent success, with no recurrence after many years. They did not attempt trials on people with large tumours.

Our trials are quite different: many people are over 50, some over 80, with advanced or terminal cancers, with significant tumour mass. Most come to us when their doctors tell them they can do no more.

The life of GcMAF is only six days – you have to keep taking it until your disease has gone (ie your nagalase is under 0.65 nmol/min/mg) then a further 8 weeks, or the immune system gets shut down again.

How long should you take GcMAF for?
8 weeks for chronic herpes/acne, fibromyalgia, inflammation.
Allow 24 weeks plus of GcMAF for: Autism (85% improve, 25% eradication), CFS (70% eradication), HIV, Lyme (8% respond, most appear to have the VDR gene blocked and the viruses conceal themselves with biofilms) and stage 1 to 2 cancer, (80% respond).
Late stage cancer, if you follow "Treatment Protocol" again has 80% responders, but it takes a year to 18 months to become cancer free.
Cirrhosis of the liver: 16 months

Remember everyone responds differently. We can't say how you will respond.

The more minor the disease, the easier it is for GcMAF to eradicate. GcMAF needs normal levels of vitamin D to function strongly (take 10,000iu a day). in low responders, larger doses are required.

We have probably proved GcMAF can work for people up to age 90, and can destroy large tumour mass. See "Participants experiences".

If you have your blood taken for monocyte counts, relevant markers and vitamin D levels, and again for a nagalase test at the beginning, you should see on your next test after three weeks that your immune system is back to full strength, and after 8 weeks significantly falling nagalase will indicate the disease is losing its grip. Don't stop the GcMAF until your nagalase gets below 0.65 nmol/min/mg, when it loses the ability to prevent your body producing your own GcMAF, and then you no longer need ours. Even better, get scans.

Autism children can improve at five weeks with substantial improvements at 8 weeks. See "Participants experiences." But everyone is different.

The beauty of using your own immune system to attack disease or cancer is that it remembers how to defeat it for the rest of your life: it doesn't come back. And unlike chemotherapy, the side effects are trivial.

The only way you can tell if GcMAF is genuine and active is to test with living cells in a laboratory. See "Quality and Tests of our GcMAF." To recap:

We put live macrophages cells and MCF7 breast cancer cells together; nothing happens. Then we add GcMAF; in 72 hours the macrophages eat all the MCF7 cancer cells. We then put only GcMAF and MCF7 together, and the GcMAF turns the cancer cells back into healthy cells.

We have GcMAF available for preclinical trials. See "Buy GcMAF".

You must read at least all of "Buy GcMAF" and "Treatment strategies" on the left if you want to take this further. And you must be prepared to give us feedback.


Patent document on GcMAF

See the Yamamoto patent involving GcMAF:

Cancerous cells and HIV-infected cells secrete -N-acetylgalactosaminidase into the blood stream, resulting in deglycosylation of serum Gc protein. This inactivates the MAF precursor activity of Gc protein, leading to immunosuppression... When peripheral blood monocytes/macrophages of 175 cancer patients bearing various types of cancer were treated in vitro with 100 pg GcMAF/ml, monocytes/macrophages (phagocytes) of all cancer patients were activated for phagocytic and superoxide generating capacity. This observation indicates that patient phagocytes are capable of being activated...

Also see BetterHealthGuy.com coverage on GcMAF:

first heard about GcMAF almost a year ago. At the same time, I had first learned about "nagalase", a blood test that is used to in part determine whether or not one might be a candidate for GcMAF therapy. Nagalase is an enzyme that prevents Vitamin D receptors (VDR) from being activated on the surface of the macrophage. As a result, macrophages are not "activated" and our immune systems are not able to properly respond to invaders.

Here are some points that I have learned thus far on GcMAF:

- GcMAF has reportedly been tested more for safety, purity, etc. than other human blood products.
- Macrophages are cultured, destroyed, and the GcMAF receptors are purified.
- Treatment is via injection 1x/week for 8-20 weeks. Dose is titrated initially to avoid exacerbation or Herx responses as much as possible.
- A commonly used dose is .25ml once weekly (a 2.2 ml vial should last 8 injections).
- The primary test used in looking at whether or not GcMAF may be a reasonable intervention is nagalase.
- Nagalase inactivates macrophages.
- I personally would NEVER consider this option without having a baseline nagalase test. Normal is < 0.95. Mine was 2.9.

The practitioner I worked with suggested that 2.9 was in the range of someone with HIV or cancer in terms of the impact on the immune system. I'd like to hear from others in the Lyme community as you get test results as well to see if there is a pattern of elevated nagalase in those with Lyme disease. Whether or not Lyme itself has anything to do with nagalase elevation is something I have not been able to find anything on. We certainly all have underlying viral co-factors that are likely in play as well, but I suspect that Borrelia may also play a role in nagalase elevation.

- In healthy college students, a nagalase 0.4 is not uncommon (the lower the better).

- At 2.9, my practitioner was surprised that I did not have more cognitive deficits such as memory loss and other cognitive issues.

- It has been suggested that ongoing antimicrobial therapy without a working immune system is like leaving the house with the door wide open inviting burglars in. By using GcMAF to activate macrophages, nagalase drops, and one may regain a functional immune system. The door is then closed to further invaders and we may no longer serve as a microbe hotel.

- Maintenance therapy should not be needed once the immune system is once again properly functioning.

- Activated macrophages only remain active for 7 days so any negative responses are generally short-lived. That said, some people do have strong inflammatory responses that are not believed to be typical die-off reactions.

- It has been indicated that in some cases, other medications may be needed in order to manage the inflammatory response. This is another reason that one needs to be working closely with a knowledgeable practitioner before considering GcMAF in my opinion. In the CFS and GcMAF world, this more severe form of a die-off reaction is called IRIS.

- VDR genetics do not seem to play a role in predicting response as earlier thought according to one practitioner that I have spoken with. That said, Vitamin D levels do correlate with the positive response rate of GcMAF. Thus, Vitamin D supplementation may be required in order to optimize outcome.

- Other than die-off reactions or activation of symptoms (inflammation), no other side effects are generally expected.

- Nagalase should be monitored every 1-2 months while on treatment to determine the required duration of the therapy. Target nagalase after treatment would be 0.4 to 0.6.

- Elevated nagalase has a profound detrimental effect on the immune system. Elevated nagalase is often presumed to be related to microbes of viral origin or cancer. Viruses that are nagalase producers open the door to chronic infections.

- Hemagglutinin contains nagalase and is also found in flagella of some bacteria so it could also be the case that some bacteria may produce nagalase.

- Parents with ASD children also often have elevated nagalase.

- A practitioner I spoke with likened Lyme disease to a "peat moss fire" burning below the surface. Activating macrophages should help to deal with the fire.

- GcMAF should be helpful in dealing with other infections that are not of viral origin; for example, Borrelia, Bartonella, and other infections commonly associated with Tick-Borne Infections (TBIs). GcMAF is active against many cancers and many different kinds of microbes.

- Neopterin is another test that is sometimes used as an indicator of immune suppression. As macrophages become activated, neopterin may rise and later fall. If one is in the normal range for neopterin and has an immune-related illness, this could be an indication that the immune system is suppressed and not responding appropriately.

- People with autoimmune conditions can generally use GcMAF. However, GcMAF may be contraindicated in people with Multiple Sclerosis.

- Reduction in nagalase is generally seen early in the course of treatment; within the first 3-6 weeks. In some studies, nagalase dropped by over 50% in less than six weeks.

- Cancer patients may initially feel as bad on GcMAF as they do on chemotherapy, but often feel much better after the first month.

- Anti-inflammatories may limited the effect of GcMAF.

- Enzymes and biofilm-reducing supplements may have a negative impact on GcMAF therapy and may be best avoided. It is still too early to know what the impact may be, but one practitioner I spoke with feels that it is best to avoid these.

- One should not be on any immune-suppressing agents while on GcMAF as the immune system must be partially functional in order to respond appropriately to the treatment.

- A common pattern is to see elevated lymphocytes, high nagalase, and low NK cells. Once nagalase drops, it may be the case that NK cell function could be positively impacted. CD57 is a type of NK cell. It is too early to know if this proves to be true, but it is one of the things I'm quite interested in.


Watch this video presentation on GcMAF therapy to learn more.

Read about GcMAF from Alternative-Health-Group.org.

Read The GcMAF Book at this link.

Open the "Stop Fighting Cancer" PDF document and search it for "GcMAF" to read some intriguing passages:

Researchers testing GcMAF stated it, "works 100% of the time to eradicate cancer completely, and cancer does not recur even years later." (This was stated based on the tested group of patients -nothing works 100% for everyone) The weekly injection GcMAF, a harmless glyco-protein activates the human immune system which then can kill the growing cancer. Studies among breast cancer and colon cancer patients produced complete remissions lasting 4 and 7 years respectively. This glyco-protein 'cure' is totally without side effect but currently goes unused and completely ignored by cancer doctors. Why? Maybe it is because there is little money to be made in selling it. For less than $2000USD a cancer patient can obtain an adequate amount of GcMAC.

See the National Library of Medicine page Immunotherapy for Prostate Cancer with Gc Protein-Derived Macrophage-Activating Factor, GcMAF:

When human macrophages were treated in vitro with 100 pg GcMAF/ml for 3 hours and a prostate cancer cell line LNCaP was added with an effector/target ratio of 1.5, approximately 51% and 82% of LNCaP cells were killed by 4 and 18 hours of incubation, respectively [14,15]. This in vitro tumoricidal capacity of macrophages activated by GcMAF led us to investigate the therapeutic efficacy of GcMAF for prostate cancer. GcMAF therapy as a single remedy modality can eradicate metastatic breast and colorectal cancers most effectively...

GCMAF for the treatment of cancer, autism, inflammation, viral and bacterial disease

July 27, 2015

 

I am posting stories related to GcMAF because it is current news hot topic. I do not endorse the product and there are plenty of alternative wholistic practitioners that are not on board with the product. It is laboratory produced and I question products that are produced in lab vs real foods.

Does anyone one know if GcMAF or related molecules are found naturally in food?


GcMAF for the treatment of cancer, autism, inflammation, viral and bacterial disease

by David Noakes

Human GcMAF, otherwise known as Vitamin D binding protein macrophage activating factor, holds great promise in the treatment of various illnesses including cancer, autism, chronic fatigue and possibly Parkinson's. Since 1990, 59 research papers have been published on GcMAF, 20 of these pertaining to the treatment of cancer. 46 of these papers can be accessed through the GcMAF web site.

GcMAF is a vital part of our immune system which does not work without it; and is part of our blood. GcMAF stimulates the macrophage element of the immune system to destroy cancer cells. It also blocks the supply of nutrients to cancer cells by stopping blood vessel development to the site (anti-angiogenesis). Cancer cells are weakened and starved, making them more vulnerable to attack by the GcMAF stimulated macrophage system. Research has shown macrophage activation and stopping diseased blood vessel development can also help in various neurological diseases such as Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory conditions, and diabetic retinopathy.

In the case of autism, Dr. James Bradstreet has so far treated 1,100 patients with GcMAF with an 85% response rate. His results show a bell curve response with 15% of the patients showing total eradication of symptoms and 15% showing no response.

In addition, experimental and clinical evidence confirms that GcMAF shows multiple powerful anti-cancer effects that have significant therapeutical impact on most tumors including breast, prostate, and kidney. GcMAF is created in the body by the release of two sugar molecules from a GcProtein molecule.

However, tumors release an enzyme known as Nagalase. Nagalase degrades GcProtein to the point it is unable to become GcMAF. Since GcMAF only lives for about a week in the body, without continuous conversion of GcProtein the stores of GcMAF are depleted rapidly in the presence of Nagalase. However, Nagalase can only destroy GcProtein and not GcMAF. Thus the introduction of external GcMAF through injection into the body has been shown to be effective.

GcMAF has no side effects of its own, but in under 10% of cases the immune system, which will be rebuilt in just three weeks, can produce considerable side effects in autistic children. The treatment consists of an injection with a tiny diabetic sized syringe once a week. The duration depends on the severity of the disease. Research also reveals that in cancer cases that are stage I and II, the success rate approaches 90% inside 6 months. Nagalase and immune system levels can be measured in the blood and thus offer a marker for cancer and other diseases.

In conclusion, GcMAF restores the energetic balance in the cell. Cancer cells driven by sugar metabolism become healthy oxygen driven cells, so tumor cells no longer behave as parasitic organisms. GcMAF stimulates macrophages to consume the cancer cells and cells invaded by viruses. This stimulation of the immune system and the anti-angiogenetic effect surrounding the tumor is beneficial in cancer and several neurological disorders like autism, chronic fatigue, Parkinson's, and Alzheimer's, and it is available to the general public.

The following testimonials are from the gcmaf.eu web site:

Autism

Hello Dr. Bradstreet, After 13 weeks of the GCMAF, we are happy to report that she continues to have tremendous gains in all areas. Increased socialization and speech, better performance in the school as well as community settings, decreased tantrums and less vocal protests, she is able to change activities and transition to non preferred tasks. It has been absolutely amazing, all her therapists, teachers, other parents have remarked about her good behavior in public places (for example, grocery stores, department stores such as Nordstrom's, Macy's, The Zoo, Bowling, the library, parks and playgrounds. In the past, we never went to these places in fear of her stimming, or her behavior (45 minute tantrums). Now, she surprises us as well as others with her appropriate comments and follows direction very well. Before she would only eat one thing (french fries) and now she eats everything including vegetables!!!!! I've sent some pictures to show her progress. We are so excited to see what more phenomenal things are in the future to come!

Ovarian and lung cancer

I first contracted cancer in the form of a granulosa cell tumour in 2005. After 2 operations and 3 months of chemo by January 2010 it had reached stage 4 and had spread from my ovaries to my lungs. After that scan in January I was told the chemo had failed, my 5 tumours were still growing, given Tamoxifen hormone, told I had between 3 months and 2 years left to live, and sent on my way.

I started taking GcMAF at the age of 56 on 16th May 2010; the only feeling or side effect I have from GcMAF is I felt almost from the beginning that I had my old energy back and was feeling much better and fitter in myself. After 8 weeks of taking only GcMAF and Tamoxifen I went for a scan. This showed all tumours had shrunk, the four in my lungs were now hardly noticeable and that the aggressive tumour in my pelvis had shrunk from 7.4cm to 4.1 cm. This is a significant decrease in size.

The stand-in consultant was very excited, and said these were excellent results. As I did not know her, and she did not ask, I did not tell her why.

On the 21st Oct I had another scan; the improvements continued; the secondaries appeared to be merely scar tissue, and the pelvic tumour had shrunk to 3.5 cm

In the winter my improvements seemed much slower; we now know because GcMAF needs normal vitamin D levels. But I've just got back from a wild month in Australia and Thailand, the sunshine should have done wonders for my vitamin D levels, and for my next scan. I will keep you updated. But I am over the moon and feel better than ever. And yes, you can phone me if you like. Gail in London.

Breast cancer

"I have the opportunity to treat patients from all over the World and the addition of GcMAF for my cancer patients is truly adding a new dimension not previously available to us. Recently I have been following a 42 year old women who had already undergone surgery, radiation and chemotherapy for stage IIIB breast cancer. I obtained a nagalase test through ELN (Holland) and it returned in the very elevated range of 4.20nmol/min/mg (normal reported by this lab does not exceed 0.95). Her other tumor markers were not elevated, but her PET scan demonstrated a likely metastatic site in the hip bone.

After discussing her options the patient wanted to try GcMAF therapy prior to considering more radiation or chemotherapy. After 6 weeks of GcMAF 100ng/week subcutaneous injections (much like a shot of insulin) her repeat nagalase test returned at 2.10 (a 50% reduction). All of her other tumor markers remain negative and she is taking the dose of Vitamin D3 required to optimize her blood levels (9000 iu/day). It is too soon for her PET to be repeated but we will follow this soon to determine the course of the bone metastasis. The nagalase test may be a more sensitive marker for tumor burden than other more accepted blood tests. GcMAF given via simple patient administered once weekly injections is clearly able to reduce the nagalase level dramatically over a short period of time. In previous published studies, nagalase response to GcMAF was correlated with reduction and eventual elimination of cancer. This is an encouragement to us all and I will keep you posted on the patient's progress."

Deflation Is Winning - Beware!

July 27, 2015

 

Deflation Is Winning - Beware!

Deflation is back on the front burner and it's going to destroy all of the careful central planning and related market manipulation of the past 6 years.

Clear signs from the periphery indicate that a destructive deflationary pulse has been unleashed. Tanking commodity prices are confirming that idea.

Whole groups of enterprises involved in mining and energy are about to be destroyed. And the commodity-heavy nations of Canada, Australia and Brazil are in for a very rough ride.

Whether the central banks can keep all of their carefully-propped equity and bond markets elevated throughout the next part of the cycle remains to be seen. We know they will try very hard. They certainly are increasingly willing to use any all tools at their disposal to keep the status quo going for as long as possible.

Whether it’s the People’s Bank of China stepping in to the market to buy 10% stakes in major Chinese corporations in a matter of weeks, the Bank Of Japan becoming the majority owner of key ETFs in the Japanese markets, or the Swiss National Bank purchasing $100 billion of various global equities, we see the same desperation. Equity prices are being propped, jammed and extended higher and higher without regard to risk or repurcussions.

It makes us wonder: Why haven’t humans ever thought to print their way to prosperity before?

Well, that’s the problem. They have.

And it has always ended up disastrously. History shows that the closest thing that economics has to an inviolable law is: There’s no such thing as a free lunch.

Sadly, all of our decision-makers are trying their hardest to ignore that truth.

First, The Fall….

So how will all of this progress from here?

We’ve always liked the Ka-Poom! theory by Erik Janzen which we explained previously like this:

One of the models of the future that I favor is the Ka-Poom theory put out by Erik Janszen of iTulip.com back in 1999.

Basically it states that the end of a bubble era begins with a sharp deflationary event (the ‘Ka’ part of the title), but ends in a highly inflationary blow-off, (the ‘Poom’).

It’s a one-two punch. Down then up.

The reason you get the deflationary portion is simply because bubbles always burst. They are seeking a pin from the moment they are born.

The logic for the inflationary secondary reaction is that the central banks always respond to deflation with more money printing. Ironically, this is a doomed attempt to stem the damage caused by their prior money printing efforts.

They never learn.

So that’s what we’re looking for here at Peak Prosperity: a deflationary crunch savage enough to scare the central banks into opening the monetary spigots even wider. But this next time, we think they’ll seek to goose economic growth by giving money directly to the people as well as non-bank corporations.

And we think that deflationary bust has already begun. Our record-high stock markets simply somehow haven’t gotten the memo yet.

So that’s it: prices first go down (Ka!) and then they rocket back up (Poom!). When it's all over some years down the line, many of the world's fiat currencies (Yen, Euro, Bolivar, Real, and maybe a few Pesos and the Rupee, too) will be damaged or dead.

Dreams are dashed. And those who are mentally unprepared and emotionally unequipped will have a very hard time adjusting.

This predicted implosion has to happen. It's a mathematical result of the grave errors made by central banks and government busybodies, who mistook the low volatility and easy gains of the virtuous portion of the money printing cycle for actual success.

Goaded on by their great fortune, they simply doubled down over and over again; seeking the same bang for those freshly-printed dollars (or yen, euros, and yuan). Of course, their efforts progressively resulted in diminishing returns. Yet they completely ignored charts like the one below, which explains much if you just stop and think about it for a couple of seconds:

(Source)

This chart says that between 1947 and 1952, when the middle class was expanding like crazy, each new dollar of debt increased the GDP by $4.61. Today, that number is $0.08(!). We can flip this, to say that it takes $12.50 of new debt to boost GDP by $1.

Clearly this is an unsustainable trend. What's been the response from the central banks? Why to encourage more debt, of course! We need more GDP, they say, and new credit formation is critical to that process!

Well, what else would you expect a banker to say? Note that the central banks are deadly mute on topics like the role of cheap debt in fostering mal-investment, to say nothing of the importance of net energy and functional ecology to the human experience.

Central planners may have a lot of power because of their access to and use of the magic printing press. But their knowledge of the real world is horribly immature, if not entirely wrong.

From The Outside In

The way things tend to work is that trouble begins on the outside and works its way towards the center. The weaker periphery elements get clobbered first, the strongest last. So it’s Greece before Spain, and Spain before France. It’s the poor before the middle class, and the middle class before the rich.

We can already see the signs of this process in play, but it's now accelerating.

Mexico

In January 2015 the Mexican peso, stung by falling oil export revenues, breached the 15-to 1-level against the US dollar for the first time since the 2009 crisis. Today, it's 16.12-to-1:

(Source)

Brazil

Meanwhile, the Brazilian real has declined by a stomach-churning 45% in the past 12 months versus the dollar:

(Source)

Where one Brazilian real used to be worth 45 cents a year ago, it's now worth just 30 cents. All of the hedge funds that tried to get rich off of the fat 12.5% yield that Brazilian 10-year debt offers just got their heads handed to them as a result of the plummeting currency exchange ratio.

Why is Brazil tanking so hard? It’s due to a combination of challenges: corruption scandals, poor trade prospects (as commodities collapse) and growing political risk. But the big one is that it's 'miracle' economic growth has crashed into a brick wall.

Puerto Rico

Similarly, Puerto Rico is in dire financial straits. There are huge haircuts coming for investors in Puerto Rican bonds and -- like Greece -- many years of economic hardship for the island's populace:

More than half of all muni bond funds have investments in Puerto Rican tax-exempt bonds, even though the sunny Caribbean island is an economic basket case. Its outstanding municipal debt of $72 billion amounts to $30,000 for each of the commonwealth’s residents, almost three times average annual per capita income. Puerto Rico’s ratio of debt to gross domestic product is more than triple that of any other U.S. state or territory, and the island’s economy has been mired in recession for nine years.

(Source)

How does a small island nation even borrow 3x average annual income per capita? It turns out it’s remarkably easy in the free-money liquidity fest offered up by the Fed. It was only a year ago that yield starved “investors” (more properly called speculators) placed $16 billion in bids for $3.5 billion of newly issued Puerto Rican junk muni bonds.

Venezuela

In even worse shape is Venezuela. It's so far down the road to financial ruin that it's almost certainly gong to be the next victim of hyperinflation.

Inflation in Venezuela signals default impending

Jul 16, 2015

Venezuela is about to earn another ignominious distinction.

Long home to the world’s highest inflation rate, the country now is set to become the site of the 57th hyperinflation event in modern recorded history, says Steve Hanke, professor of applied economics at Johns Hopkins University. While the feat may be little more than a formality in a country where Hanke calculates annual cost-of-living increases already run at 772 percent, it’s the latest sign a debt default may be closer than previously thought.

With Venezuela’s currency losing 32 percent of its value in the past month in the black market, according to dolartoday.com, and falling oil prices throttling the cash-starved nation’s biggest revenue source, the government may run out of money to pay its debts by year-end, according to Societe Generale. Derivatives traders have ratcheted up the probability of a default within one year to 63 percent, compared with 33 percent just two months ago.

(Source)

Things are about to get even more dire for the people of Venezuela. Already suffering acute shortages of consumer staples, they're about to experience the same type of horrific monetary devaluation that Zimbabwe did.

China

China is anything but a peripheral country, but the import/export numbers suggest that China is slowing down hard and ripe for a crash. Instead of trying to gracefully manage its transition from an industrial economy to a consumer economy, China is simply plowing ahead following the same script that fostered its growth in the first place.

Loans are being hurriedly pushed out the door to support everything from the stock market to real estate. Despite these efforts, lots is going wrong, as evidenced by the vicious bursting of China's stock bubble and the heavy-handed government rescue efforts that have followed:

Half the shares traded in Shanghai and Shenzhen were suspended. New floats were halted. Some 300 corporate bosses were strong-armed into buying back their own shares. Police state tactics were used hunt down short sellers.

We know from a vivid account in Caixin magazine that China’s top brokers were shut in a room and ordered to hand over money for an orchestrated buying blitz. A target of 4,500 was set for the Shanghai Composite by Communist Party officials.

Caixin says the China Securities Finance Corporation - a branch of the regulator - now owns an estimated $200bn of Chinese stocks and has authority to buy a further $500bn if necessary to prop up the market.

This use of “brute force” - in the words of Peking University professor Michael Pettis - has done the trick. Equities have recovered. How could they not do so, since selling was illegal, and not to buy was also illegal?

(Source – AEP Telegraph)

We get the following interesting chart, from this same article which supports the idea that China’s rate of economic growth has slowed sharply and is well below the officially-stated rate of 7%:

Throwing lots and lots of new money at the problem of slowing growth and collapsing equity prices is exactly backwards from what should be done.

The problem is not that equity prices are falling, it's that they are too high compared to earnings (70x trailing earnings!).The problem is not that real estate building and sales are slowing down, it’s that too much was built and prices are already far too high (20x median income or higher!).

Assume The Crash Position

In Part 2: Assume The Crash Position, analyzes how if deflation does indeed take over and swamp the official efforts at damage control, quite a lot of fantasy wealth in today's stock, bond and real estate markets will be destroyed. This means you want to be positioned away from risk-based financial assets right now -- with stocks and low & junk grade bonds are right at the top of that list. Cash and short maturity sovereign debt of good countries will be much better places to hang out while the storm rages.

Like it or not, things are getting interesting again. The prudent move here is to watch developments very closely, position yourself defensively, and be ready to react nimbly, if necessary. After years of suppression, the forces of reality are threatening to overwhelm our managed global ""markets"'. And it's about damn time.

Holistic cancer doctor Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez has passed away

July 23, 2015

 

Many of you have either met Dr. Gonzalez, or seen him speak at a Weston A. Price conference.  We just wanted to share this with the community and those who have know of Dr. Gonzalez's work.  Our deepest sympathy and prayers goes out to his family at this time.

Holistic cancer doctor will be missed by millions of people worldwide

Words can’t express the tremendous influence Dr. Gonzalez had within the alternative medical world. As a tireless health advocate, his medical practice was a fine example of his care for humanity. In addition to his successful medical practice, Dr. Gonzalez authored the book, What Went Wrong: The Truth Behind the Clinical Trial of the Enzyme Treatment of Cancer, wrote extensively for NaturalHeatlh365 and many other natural health websites and was a frequent contributor to the NaturalHealth365 INNER CIRCLE.

Here’s just one example of the many projects I did with Dr. Gonzalez – he was always so generous with his time. Check out this YouTube video (below):

What we know plus many other questions (hopefully) to be answered in time

  • When he died – he was alone. His body was found some time after he died.
  • As of now, there has been no autopsy report. We do not know if an autopsy has been requested.
  • Everyone that knew Dr. Gonzalez is SHOCKED – and many of his friends are left with lots of questions about his death.

I considered Dr. Gonzalez a friend and will be forever grateful for his work and love for humanity. My heart and prayers go out to his family and friends. This is truly a sad day for me.

Dr. Gonzalez – thank you so much for your contributions to society and your friendship. Rest in peace.

Authorities: Anti-vaccine doctor dead in apparent suicide

CHIMNEY ROCK, N.C. -- Authorities say Dr. Jeff Bradstreet, who published research based on the medically disproved claim that vaccines cause autism, has been found dead in an apparent suicide in North Carolina.

The Rutherford County Sheriff's Office said in a news release issued this week that Bradstreet died of what appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest.

Bradstreet, who was from Braselton, Georgia, was found in the Rocky Broad River in Chimney Rock on June 19. His body was found by a fisherman. The sheriff's department said Tuesday that a handgun was also pulled from the river.

Authorities are still investigating.

Bradstreet ran a clinic in Buford, Georgia. He also owned Creation's Own, a maker of dietary supplements, which he also prescribed.

The Gwinnett Daily Post reports that agents from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, aided by the Georgia Drugs and Narcotics Agency, raided the Bradstreet Wellness Center last week. The FDA did not reveal to the paper why agents had searched Bradstreet's office.

Bradstreet's family is now raising funds online to investigate his death, including "an exhaustive investigation into the possibility of foul play."

The Bradstreet Wellness Center's website describes the practice's focus as "treating children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, PPD, and related neurological and developmental disorders," through the use of measured biomarkers.

"Our mission is to positively impact children's lives by meeting their biological, behavioral, and nutritional needs," it states. "Properly identify and address the underlying issues so that the child's brain, gut and immune systems can begin to function and heal."

In 2009, the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, Office of Special Masters found Bradstreet's research claiming causation between autism and environmental mercury exposure, which were published in non-peer-reviewed journals, and his testimony about links between a young patient's autism and his MMR vaccination, to be unconvincing and unsupported by evidence.

The court's opinion also questioned Bradstreet's treatment of a Florida boy whose family had filed a claim under the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. Over several years, Bradstreet prescribed a variety of dietary supplements, "de-yeasting," secretin infusions, immunoglobulin therapy and chelation therapy, as well as numerous non-standard laboratory tests which were not FDA-approved.

Public Health Officials Know: Recently Vaccinated Individuals Spread Disease

Public Health Officials Know: Recently Vaccinated Individuals Spread Disease












Washington, D.C., March 3, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Physicians and public health officials know that recently vaccinated individuals can spread disease and that contact with the immunocompromised can be especially dangerous. For example, the Johns Hopkins Patient Guide warns the immunocompromised to "Avoid contact with children who are recently vaccinated," and to "Tell friends and family who are sick, or have recently had a live vaccine (such as chicken pox, measles, rubella, intranasal influenza, polio or smallpox) not to visit."1

A statement on the website of St. Jude's Hospital warns parents not to allow people to visit children undergoing cancer treatment if they have received oral polio or smallpox vaccines within four weeks, have received the nasal flu vaccine within one week, or have rashes after receiving the chickenpox vaccine or MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) vaccine.2

"The public health community is blaming unvaccinated children for the outbreak of measles at Disneyland, but the illnesses could just as easily have occurred due to contact with a recently vaccinated individual," says Sally Fallon Morell, president of the Weston A. Price Foundation. The Foundation promotes a healthy diet, non-toxic lifestyle and freedom of medical choice for parents and their children. "Evidence indicates that recently vaccinated individuals should be quarantined in order to protect the public."

Scientific evidence demonstrates that individuals vaccinated with live virus vaccines such as MMR (measles, mumps and rubella), rotavirus, chicken pox, shingles and influenza can shed the virus for many weeks or months afterwards and infect the vaccinated and unvaccinated alike. 3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10.11.12

Furthermore, vaccine recipients can carry diseases in the back of their throat and infect others while displaying no symptoms of a disease.13,14,15

Both unvaccinated and vaccinated individuals are at risk from exposure to those recently vaccinated. Vaccine failure is widespread; vaccine-induced immunity is not permanent and recent outbreaks of diseases such as whooping cough, mumps and measles have occurred in fully vaccinated populations.16,17 Flu vaccine recipients become more susceptible to future infection after repeated vaccination.18,19

Adults have contracted polio from recently vaccinated infants. A father from Staten Island ended up in a wheel chair after contracting polio while changing his daughter's diaper. He received a 22.5 million dollar award in 2009. 20,21

"Vaccine failure and failure to acknowledge that live virus vaccines can spread disease have resulted in an increase in outbreaks of infectious disease in both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals," says Leslie Manookian, producer of The Greater Good. "CDC should instruct physicians who administer vaccinations to inform their patients about the risks posed to others by those who've been recently vaccinated."

According to the Weston A. Price Foundation, the best protection against infectious disease is a healthy immune system, supported by adequate vitamin A and vitamin C. Well-nourished children easily recover from infectious disease and rarely suffer complications.

The number of measles deaths declined from 7575 in 1920 (10,000 per year in many years in the 1910s) to an average of 432 each year from 1958-1962.22 The vaccine was introduced in 1963. Between 2005 and 2014, there have been no deaths from measles in the U.S. and 108 deaths reported after the MMR vaccine.23

The Weston A. Price Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nutrition education foundation with the mission of disseminating accurate, science-based information on diet and health. Named after nutrition pioneer Weston A. Price, DDS, author of Nutrition and Physical Degeneration, the Washington, DC-based Foundation publishes a quarterly journal for its 15,000 members, supports 600 local chapters worldwide and hosts a yearly international conference.

The Eye-Brain Connection

The Eye-Brain Connection

In Tips From the Traditional Cook by Maria Atwood, CNHP2 Comments

I’ve needed to wear glasses since my very early childhood, but I’ve never done anything for my eyes except obediently get my yearly exam and leave with a stronger prescription than the one before. That habit abruptly stopped last year when I was visited with a serious inflammation in my left eye. The sudden redness and severe pain in my eyeball sent me to a top specialist, and after the examination he prescribed steroid drops. He also suggested I’d need them for the rest of my life, as what I had was an incurable disorder—but since steroids are damaging in the long run, I’d need to use them cautiously.

The doctor called my condition episcleritis, a benign, self-limiting inflammatory disease affecting part of the eye called the episclera. This thin layer of tissue lies between the conjuctiva and the connective tissue that forms the white of the eye, or the sclera. I used the steroids, but only until the excruciating pain and redness subsided. Not only was I baffled as to how this condition originated, but I also grew fearful of losing my eyesight. To this day I still haven’t found the cause of this eye disorder. To further complicate matters, within two weeks I felt the severe aching and redness begin in my right eye. Once again I had to pay a handsome price to visit the specialist and go back to using the steroids. Talk about depressed and fearful—this is it, my friends, as our eyes are one of the most precious parts of our body.

In a real panic, I of course called one of my favorite Standard Process mentors, Joseph Antell. He advised me to immediately start the following protocol: Iplex, a superior eye supplement; an increased intake of Cataplex C to address the connective tissue damage; Oculotrophin PMG to deter further damage; and, last but not least, Golden Seal from MediHerb to stem the inflammation.

Within a week I began to feel some relief, although for the next month I’d use a drop or two of the steroids when I sensed the pain coming back. All told, it took approximately two months on this protocol to feel a distinct difference and stop using the steroids. I haven’t needed them since, and I’m keeping my fingers crossed. I continue to take Iplex, Cataplex C, and Oculotrophin PMG. I intersperse Golden Seal into the ongoing protocol but don’t use it daily. I was also more judicious about taking fermented cod liver oil and high-vitamin butter daily from Green Pasture, and also ate some form of liver twice a week (calf, chicken, or goose liver) throughout the two months. However, I didn’t stop there. For healing and strengthening your eyes, please read on for more recommendations.

Knowing there had to be more I could do to help my eyes cope with the additional time I’d been spending on the computer, as well as other factors such as advancing age-related dryness and blue light from TV and computers, I looked for reading material that could point me to an ongoing eye-strengthening program. After reading through several books, I came upon 28 Days to Reading Without Glasses by Lisette Scholl, a natural vision improvement teacher, certified hypnotist, and yoga instructor. This book taught me how to properly take care of my eyes and also helped me understand the crucial eye-brain connection. Now my eyes are less tired, and hopefully in time I’ll be like one of the success stories mentioned in the book—not wearing glasses anymore and having truly healthy eyes in the future.

Allow me to quote just one paragraph that explains the connection between the eye and the brain—something I was totally unaware of:

The visual system and its little video recorders are incredibly complex. The average eye has nearly one billion working parts. A lot is going on in there! Dr. Robert-Michael Kaplan, one of the leading behavioral optometrists, notes in Seeing Without Glasses that “our eyes, for their size, have a greater blood and nerve supply than most other organ systems in the body, and there is a strong relationship between the brain and the fitness of the eyes. Approximately 49 percent of the brain’s cranial nerves, which directly feed the body’s nervous system, are just for the eyes.” In addition, retinal nerve fibers make up 40 percent of all nerve fibers going to the brain. This is impressive in and of itself, but especially when you realize that the retina amounts to one-millionth of our body weight. Proportionately speaking, the eyes’ requirements far outweigh those of our other organs.
28 Days to Reading Without Glasses, p. 6

Before I go on to some tasty nutrient-dense recipes that support healthy eyes, I’d like to outline just a few of the techniques Scholl uses on her clients. I especially like the accompanying bookmark exercise, which can be copied and laminated. It’s large and easy to read. To strengthen your eyes, Scholl recommends this 7-step exercise after reading or typing two pages of any material. It takes less than 2–3 minutes, and it will become a habit as you continue doing it. In just a few days, you’ll truly feel the difference in your eyes.

Bookmark

  • Take off your glasses!
  • Yawn—at least three times.
  • Stand up and stretch (or stretch while sitting).
  • Stretch your eye muscles: look up, down, left, right, diagonally, and around in circles.
  • Shift your focus quickly, in and out 5 times, from near to distant objects.
  • Palm for at least 5 deep breaths. [Palming is cupping your hands over your eyes.]
  • Put the bookmark ahead 2 pages and continue reading, first checking to see if you can read without your glasses.

Stop right now and see how relaxing this exercise can be, whether you’re reading or typing on a keyboard. This is also a good time to take a few sips of beet kvass, coconut water, or just plain water with a pinch of sea salt added to it.

Other exercises in the book include the Bates Method, an alternative therapy for improving eyesight created by William H. Bates, MD. You can learn more about his life-changing eye exercises in DVD courses, books, or online. Scholl also offers some great mental uplifting and relaxing techniques from her own clinical practice and short, simple leg, arm, and body exercises to increase circulation. Last but not least is her easy-to-follow 28-day program that allows you to pace yourself through each unique therapy while adding a new level every day, therefore keeping it simple and doable. Hopefully, I’ve now convinced you that taking the eye-brain connection seriously and finding the time to relax and pamper those eyes will help preserve your vision.

In my blog post “Relaxation: The Cure-All Vitamin,” I also talk about an easy twice-a-day technique that helps you relax not just your eyes but your whole body.

For another must-read article on eye health, see “Vitamin A Saga” from the Weston A. Price Foundation. Here’s an excerpt:

Listed below are approximate levels of vitamin A in common foods, in IUs per 100 grams:

  • High-vitamin cod liver oil 230,000
  • Regular cod liver oil 100,000
  • Duck liver 40,000
  • Beef liver 35,000
  • Goose liver 31,000
  • Liverwurst sausage (pork) 28,000
  • Lamb liver 25,000

It should be noted that these amounts can vary according to how the animals are fed. Weston Price noted a huge variation in vitamin A content of butter according to the season. In addition, absorption of vitamin A varies according to the food. Research carried out during the 1940s indicates that vitamin A is more easily absorbed from butter than from other foods.

The US Recommended Daily Allowance of vitamin A is currently 5,000 IU per day (and may possibly be lowered to 2500 IU per day). From the work of Weston Price, we can assume that the amount in primitive diets was about 50,000 IU per day, which could be achieved in a modern diet by consuming generous amounts of whole milk, cream, butter and eggs from pastured animals; beef or duck liver several times per week; and 1 tablespoon regular cod liver oil or ½ tablespoon high-vitamin cod liver oil per day.

The recipes that follow should help you get started on an eye program that may help you avoid the dreaded episcleritis while getting lots of added nutrition into your diet.

Pumpkin for Your Peepers

This is a great pumpkin mousse.

Ingredients
1 cup organic pumpkin puree (I recommend Farmer’s Market Organic Pumpkin)
1 cup plain full fat Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon Great Lakes Gelatin
¼ cup freshly squeezed orange juice
? cup maple syrup, or to taste
Zest of one orange
½ teaspoon mixed spice (cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, ginger)
¼ cup whipping cream, very cold

Instructions

  1. Place a medium bowl in freezer. In a large bowl, mix pumpkin and yogurt with a whisk.
  2. Sprinkle gelatin over orange juice and let sit for about three minutes, just enough time to get maple syrup ready.
  3. Bring maple syrup to a boil on medium-high heat in a small saucepan, stirring constantly. Pour boiling maple syrup over orange juice and stir until gelatin has melted.
  4. Pour maple syrup mix into pumpkin preparation and whisk well. Add orange zest and spices. Stir to combine.
  5. Using the chilled bowl from freezer, whip cream to firm peaks with a hand mixer. Next, use the mixer to whip pumpkin for about 1 minute. With a spatula, gently fold whipped cream into pumpkin mix.
  6. Ladle into serving cups and chill in refrigerator until set, about 2–3 hours.

Turkey Burgers

High in zinc, turkey is terrific for the eyes. The orange peppers and green onion in these tasty burgers will also provide your eyes with lutein and zeaxanthin. For a lighter version, omit the whole wheat buns and enjoy your turkey burger wrapped in lettuce.

Ingredients
1 lb. ground organic turkey
1 free-range egg
½ cup green onion, chopped
¼ cup whole wheat bread crumbs or oat bran
¼ cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
Salt and pepper to taste

For the toppings:
2 orange peppers, sautéed until limp
2 yellow onions, caramelized in olive oil (optional)
4 whole wheat buns or lettuce
3 tablespoons grainy Dijon mustard
Leaf lettuce

Instructions

  1. Mix ground turkey with remaining ingredients and form into patties.
  2. Prepare the orange peppers and caramelized onions and set aside in a warm toaster oven.
  3. Grill or broil the turkey burgers. Place on whole wheat buns or lettuce leaves and add the toppings. Enjoy!
An afterthought from the Traditional Cook...
