Nitrogen mustard, a chemical warfare killing agent, and the grandfather of chemotherapy agents is still used on cancer patients today! They now have the "acceptable" names of Cytoxin, Alkeran, and Leukeran. Nitrogen mustard is meant to kill people, and it frequently does that job very well when given to cancer patients on smartcric .
So sorry to hear about your wife, my friend. She can definitely beat it, though.
I am surprised that she wasn't regularly taking iodine already, given your high regards for it and your research. On the other hand, I am not surprised at all to see iodine highly praised in your post.
You know that I have a very high regard for iodine and I believe it is an excellent item to use to both treat and prevent breast cancer. HOWEVER, I would not bet my life, my wife's life or anybody else's life on iodine alone and I hope and pray that you don't do so either.
Iodine deficiency and other mineral and nutrient deficiencies can play large roles in the development of cancer, but based on My own decades of research and that of giants in the field such as Antoine Bechamp and my unsung late friend and mentor Dr. Marc Swanepoel, far and away the number one cause of cancer is exposure to toxins - particularly long-term exposure to toxins in combination with poor cellular terrain, including undernourished cells (such as ones with ioding and other deficiencies).
Question: if iodine deficiency is the primary cause of cancer and ioding supplementation is the cure, then how to explaiin how successful treating cancer with oleander has been since it does nothing to address iodine deficiency and, at least where Dr. Ozel in Turkey was concerned in the thousands of patients he successfully treated for cancer with oleander, there was no iodine supplementation involved?
To be sure, iodine and other defieicencies should all be corrected and it could well be that correcting those deficiencies will result in elmination of someone's cancer. By the same token, removal of root canals has been used sussessfully and so has management of stress/unresolved emotional issues and changes to a healthy diet. I think that ALL of those should be done. And more.
A lasting cure for cancer can only be achieved by 1) eliminating ALL existing cancer in the body, 2) eliminating and then avoiding the root cause(s) that enabled cancer to gain a foothold in the first place (toxins and deficiencies) and 3) building and maintaining a strong natural immune system, which is our first line of defense against cancer and other illness.
No one single item or supplement can be relied on to provide a lasting cure for cancer. Not my beloved oleander and not your beloved iodine. It takes a number of items, imo, and it takes a life-changing committment to a persistently and consistently follow a healthier diet, get optimum nutrtition, get plenty of sunshine, manage stress/unresolved issues, wise supplementation and food choices that fight cancer and boost/modulate the immune system and more - all of which can be found in my suggested protocol - which I will put up against any other protocol out there:
Right you are, Joe. I cover that in my suggested comprehensive anti-cancer protocol and I also put this article together based on my conversations with Billl Henderson ("Beating Cancer Gently", etc.):
And of course you know that you can trust anything the American Cancer Society has to say. After all, they just love alternative cancer therapies. Pfffft! Curious - do they recommend iodinie for treating breast cancer? Have you ever seen any alternative cancer therapy recommended by the ACS?
Perhaps you should add my series on the American Cancer Society to your reading list:
No, the ACS totally embraces the failed mainstream cancer treatment paradigm of trying to cut out, poison out or burn out the symptoms of cancer (tumors) with surgery, chemo and radiation. Is THAT the kind of advice you want to take to your wife?
Yes, Grizz, the RAW oleander plant is quite toxic. However, when the right parts of the plant are prepared properly and the toxins removed, it becomes something quite magical. I thought you knew that! To paraphrase a head of oncology at M. D. Anderson (where many of the successful studies on oleeander have been conducted): "We don't know exactly how all the various compounds in oleander work together against cancer, we just know that they do work and work very well - killing cancer cells, and ONLY cancer cells, and stopping them from multiplying".
Perhaps you might recognize some noted cancer-fighters and immune-boosters among this partial list of the 500+ compounds that have been identified thus far in oleander:
Oleander contains cardiac gycosides, long chain polysacharrides and other types of compounds including: Beta-sistosterol, Quercitin, Ursolic-acid, Linoleic-acid, Oleic-acid, Rutin, Stigmasterol, Lauric-acid, Oleandrin, Oleandrinogen, Oleandrigenin, Adynerin, Alpha-amyrin, Betulin, Foliandrin, Folinerin, Gitoxigenin, Isoquercitrin, Neriin, Oleanolic-acid and Uzarigenin.
There are in fact both naturopathic and integrative doctors who use oleander therapy, though not many since it is not an AMA approved therapy, the same as is true of iodine therapy for anything other than treatment of thyroid cancer. How about mainstream Turkish doctor H. Z. Ozel, who has used oleander for over 40 years to treat cancers of all types with an overall succes rate of 72% - pretty remarkable when you consider that he is a mainstream doctor who does not incorporate any other alternative treatments and who, much like in the U.S.,, can only use oleander after chemo or radiation have been tried and failed or otherwise rejected.
My very good friend and mentor, the late great Dr. Marc Swanepoel, who developed the Sutherlandia OPC line of oleander based supplements, reports overall success rates of 85+% for stage II and IV cancers and 95+% for stage i and II for his oleander based protocol, which pretty much tracks with what I have seen with my own more comprehensive protocol (though I don't treat anyone, I just provide information they can use to treat themselves).
And Grizz, my friend, when it comes to recommendations on cancer by Dquixote, you and the missus can pretty well take those to the bank. I was not asked to be the local moderator of this forum several years ago because I give bad cancer advice or don't know what I am talking about.
I am floored! You know me as a friend and as the local moderator of this forum and don't know about oleander? Holy cow! It is only the number one area of my research and writing for the past two-pus decades! Do a Google search for "oleander cancer tony isaacs"!
Or better still, just go to my website and take a look at my oleander series of articles:
Or even better, send me your email address and I'll send you a copy of my eBook that has sold in over 25 countries, Cancer's Natural Enemy.
Shaking my head . . . .
One more thing that.. The worst part is that you can bet that all these people that run big pharma and FDA , aren't taking any of the drugs that they make and lie and gave it put in print that "Drugs cure". And God help the doctors that decide that smartcric natural healing is better for their patients, because they will have the FDA shut them down and revoke their licenses.
