Juices and Minerals for Cancer

Minerals for Cancer.

Green Juices and Calf Liver Juice are used in some alternative cancer therapies.
Iodine,calcium, potassium and phosphorous are important minerals in any diet which is aimed at beating cancer.
Green juices, such as the famous wheat grass juice which is rich in the life-giving chlorophyl, contain high amounts of these minerals.  Green juices help to restore the healthy balance of minerals in the liver.
The liver normally should be potassium rich, but when it is malfunctioning through cancer, it stores too much sodium and impurities. Normally, the tissues are higher in sodium and the liver and other organs higher in potassium.  When this balance gets upset, we get sick. So – one easy but important strategy to help the body get well, is to restore this balance. It is important to leave out salt whilst you are on a programme designed to beat cancer or arthritis or other disease:  This is because salt is sodium.  It upsets the healthy balance of potassium/sodium and depletes potassium in the liver.  Raising those potassium levels is imperative if you want to overcome disease.
Green juice, and calf liver juice, can do so much in helping the body to beat cancer and any other disease. Green juices are antiseptic and disease-repellant. Apart from helping to remove toxins from the liver and neutralize them for their safe exit, green juices are potassium rich and contain important digestive enzymes which also help to counteract cancer and heal the body. They are vitamin rich and mineral rich.
Just about all the nutrients you need to live are contained in fresh wheat grass juice which is prepared from home grown wheat grass. Supplementing this green juice programme with calf liver juice ensures that you have ample supplies of iron, and the important Vitamin B complex such as B 6 and B 12 which are sometimes deficient in vegetarian diets. See my post on how to make calf liver juice:  Basically, it is chopped up, put into a glass jar, and cooked gently in a saucepan of water for several hours.  It is important to put a tea towel or other piece of thick cotton onto the bottom of your saucepan for your glass jar of liver to sit on.  Otherwise it will crack.
However:  Many soils are deficient in iodine, which means that vegetables grown there will be deficient in this mineral. So painting a little iodine onto the soles of the feet, or onto the scalp, is a good idea to prevent iodine deficiency.  This should be done twice a week if you are treating cancer – just a couple of dabs painted onto the skin and left there is all that is necessary.  Alternatively, you could use Lugol’s solution daily – this is a very weak preparation of iodine, designed to be taken orally.
Dr Ann Wigmore, a medical doctor who cured herself of cancer by using mainly wheat grass juice, went on to cure many people in her cancer clinics using her wheat grass method.
After an initial cleansing period of several weeks on wheat grass or other vegetable juices, other foods such as raw egg yolk can be introduced.
Walter Last used two raw egg yolks per day on his almost all raw food, fresh juice regime. His diet was basically wheat free, yeast free, dairy free (except for butter), sugar free and yeast free. It was almost meat free too, except for fresh calf liver juice which was taken in small amounts, a teaspoon or two at a time, through the day. Most food should be taken uncooked, in salads and juices, with only moderate amounts of vegetables being cooked.
One favourite cooked item of Dr Gerson’s diet was a large plate of oatmeal porridge, eaten every morning.  This was introduced after the initial cleansing using juices, raw food and castor oil and enemas.
Dr Gerson believed that having a large bowl of porridge which was ALWAYS accompanied with a grated raw apple, helped the digestion to function normally.  Eating a really good breakfast such as this, combined with raw apple, provided excellent bulk of high fiber which cleansed the intestines.  This regular high fiber breakfast trains the intestines to become efficient in their job of assimilation and elimination.

Natural Sources of B Vitamins

The Importance of B Vitamins:

B Vitamins are  essential to maintaining good health and preventing illness. B Vitamins help eyesight:  Vitamin B has been found to be protective against blindness in cases of  macular degeneration amongst women, mainly the folic acid, pyridoxine and cyanocobalamin groups of B Vitamins.  Vitamin B  helps to protect against candida overgrowth in the digestive tract, which helps protect against  yeast infections. Vitamin B is important for hair growth and for healthy skin.  Vitamin B  counteracts stress, which helps us to keep a stable emotional state, avert depression,  and get a good night’s sleep.

B Vitamins have been found to be protective against many other diseases.  In fact, B vitamins are essential to good health.

B Vitamins are found in many foods:   It is useful to know what B vitamins are found in what foods, as some specific B vitamins are needed to combat certain conditions in the body.

This is not a complete list of natural sources of B vitamins, but it will give you an idea as to  the main groups  of B vitamins necessary,  and the ones which are most commonly deficient.  Then you can choose your foods appropriately, so that you create a good balance of all the necessary  Vitamins and Minerals in your diet.

All the B Vitamins are necessary to good health, but there are some which we must ensure we do not become deficient in.  The two of the  most  commonly deficient, but important,  B Vitamins are Vitamin B 12, and Vitamin B 6.

Sources of Vitamin B 12, or Cobalamin: Vitamin B 12 is commonly deficient in vegetarians, or people who do not eat a lot of meat, fish, eggs, or dairy products.

Liver is the richest source of Vitamin B 12, or Pyridoxine:

Liver is rich in Vitamin B 12, B 6, and also in the other range of  B Vitamins.  Celiacs and others whose digestion is poor are often deficient in Vitamin B 12.  Deficiency of this vitamin can cause anaemia-type symptoms.  If you are able to eat meat, then eating some liver once a week will help to restore your vitamin B 12 levels, as well as increase your iron blood count.

Sources of Vitamin B 6, Pyrodioxine: Vitamin B 6 is important to keep the mental process alive and well, apart from other physical conditions. Deficiency of Vitamin B 6 is common amongst celiacs,  people with poor digestion, and vegetarians. Deficiency of Vitamin B 6 can cause serious depression.

Vitamin B 6 is found in liver, red meats,  chicken and fish.  It can also be obtained from vegetable sources such as green beans and bananas.  Other  vegetable sources  of Vitamin B 6 are wheatgerm, whole grains and pulses.  Brewer’s yeast is another rich source of Vitamin B6.

Home Made Calves Liver Broth for Vitamin B Complex, including Vitamin B 12 and B6. Of course, this will not help those people who do not eat meat, but the home made calf liver broth is an excellent way of providing B Vitamins to a malnourished or sick body which cannot digest meat and heavy foods.  This broth is used in many cancer therapies and in healing other disease, as it is full of enzymes which help disgestion, as well as the B Vitamins. It is a wonderful recuperative medicine.

  • To Make the Broth:  Cut up a quantity of calves liver – enough to about half fill an agee jar, or a two pint jar.  Cover the liver with water.  Put on the lid.
  • Now find a six inch deep saucepan.  Put a folded piece of cotton or woolen cloth onto the bottom,  It should be a thick wad to protect the glass from cracking, which could occur otherwise, as the saucepan is going to be left on the stove for several hours.
  • Put your two pint jar onto the cloth.
  • Now  three quater fill the saucepan which has the jar in with WARM water. The water level should be a little above the level of the liver in the jar.
  • Now put the the saucepan on the stove.  Turn the heat up to medium until the water comes to the boil, then reduce the heat so that the water is very gently simmering.  The lower the temperature you use, the more nutrients and enzymes there will be in the end result,  including vitamin B12 and B6
  • Simmer from two to three hours.  Take off the heat.  Let cool, then press the juice out of the liver.  Store in the fridge in an air tight jar, and sip several teaspoons of the tonic throughout each day.  It is good to use a teaspoonful before each meal, as this aids digestion. It is very good for debilitated people, or people with cancer.
