Apple Cider Vinegar – 32 Health Benefits

 

32 Health Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar

(8 are Backed by Scientific Research)

Have your heard the term “an apple a day takes the doctor away”? After reading this article you may want change that to “an apple cider vinegar a day takes the doctor away”. Before doing extensive research about this, little did I know about the many health benefits it has on our body. In total, I found a total of 32 health benefits, some of which are backed by scientific research. Hippocrates was probably the first doctor in the ancient times to use vinegar for its medicinal purposes like disinfecting wounds and research has proven those properties to be true.   Health Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar

 Based on historical records, vinegar was discovered around 5,000 BC by the Babylonians by accident. The French calls it vin aigre which means sour wine. This accidental discovery turned out to be great because it was an extremely versatile product even during the ancient times.
 Hippocrates

Even back then Hippocrates discovered that it had a lot of healing properties and used it when treating wounds. Chinese also used vinegar as to treat ailments as early as 1,200 B.C. One of the most popular types of vinegar, the apple cider (or ACV) is touted by a lot of natural health advocates as having a lot of health benefits some of which include weight loss, diabetes control and improving cardiovascular health. If you look around the web, you’ll see that there are a lot of benefits, some are backed by scientific research while some aren’t. My goal here is to enumerate all of these benefits I find here and link to the sources. Let’s dig in to those benefits one by one. First I’ve divided it into two sections, those back with scientific research and those without.

Backed by scientific research

The benefits listed here are backed by at least one scientific evidence. The studies done here are not just on humans but also on cells and different animals like rats.

Apple Cider Vinegar is Rich in Acetic Acid – It Increases the Body’s Capability of Absorbing More Minerals

Take note that acetic acid is not vinegar, it is a bacteria found in vinegar that is a byproduct of the fermentation process and as you go along this article, you’ll find out that this bacteria is responsible for the other benefits below. [1]. During the fermentation process, the acetic acid bacteria grows inside the liquid and as the fermentation process goes along it slowly grows to become a nontoxic slime that looks like this.

The

People call it the “mother” [2]. For me it looks like tiny bits of worms floating around the liquid. There are vinegar manufacturers that remove the “mother” using a filtration process but if you’re thinking of consuming this or adding it to a juice recipe, avoid using distilled vinegar but opt for the raw, unfiltered variety that contains the mother. So far there is no scientific evidence that backs up claims of the “mother’s” health benefits. This ingredient is responsible for the tart flavor and the biting odor of vinegar. Acetic acid content in vinegar varies between 4 to 7% in distilled vinegars and 5 to 6% in wine vinegars. Bragg unfiltered ACV (one of the more popular brands) contains 5.14% of acetic acid [3].

Tip: The FDA says that diluted acetic acid is not vinegar and should not be added into any food product that is expected to contain vinegar.
2

Has Cancer Fighting Properties

Cancer is a silent killer in that the symptoms don’t manifest itself until it is in a stage where there is little that you can do to cure it. In 2014 over 1.6 million people in the United States tested positive for cancer and there were over half a million deaths (it is the 4th common cause of death in the USA) [4]. Research has shown that vinegar can at least shrink and kill some types of cancer cells. While the results have been positive (take note that scientists use rice wine and sugar cane vinegar, not ACV), most of the tests done where on laboratory animals and not people so whether or not the results will be the same on humans is unclear right now [5, 6, 7, 8]. A couple of tests where done on actual people. One was done in China, where they discovered that vegetable and vinegar consumption reduced the risk of oesophageal cancer [9]. However in a separate study done in Serbia, results showed that vinegar consumption increased bladder cancer 4.4 times [10]. Based on these studies, vinegar is found to have anti-tumor properties thanks to the acetic acid bacteria. And since vinegar comes from various plants, it contains polyphenols which is known to have anticancer and antioxidant properties.

It is a Proven Disinfectant and Bacteria Killer

Before any scientific study was done, Hippocrates has been using vinegar to treat wounds over 2,000 years ago [11] and modern research has proven that vinegar can kill some types of bacteria like E. coli and S. aureus. It isn’t as effective as commercial products like Clorox but it does not have chemicals in it so it is safe to use in washing produce and is also known as a natural food preservative [12, 13].

4

Lowers Bad Cholesterol and Prevent Cardiovascular Disease

One of the biggest risk factors of having high cholesterol is it can lead to various heart ailments. Once bad cholesterol clogs the arteries, there is a huge risk of cardiac arrest. Apple cider vinegar can help lower because it contains chlorogenic acids that help lower LDL or bad cholesterol, preventing it from accumulating and crystalizing in the bloodstream [14]. Take note that the research done was only done to rats which may or may not translate to same results on humans. One study done on over 70,000 women showed that an increased intake of oil and vinegar salad dressing reduced the risk of ischemic heart disease [15].

5

Prevents the onset of Diabetes by lowering Postprandial Glycemia

For those who don’t know postprandial glycemia simply refers to the elevated blood sugar levels that occur after a meal – this is a big factor why pre-diabetics progress to type 2 diabetics. The term pre diabetes means that an individual has elevated blood glucose levels but not high enough to be considered as type-2 diabetes. If left undiagnosed it can lead to type 2 diabetes in 10 years or less [16]. Researchers from Arizona University found out that drinking vinegar juice that included 20 grams of apple cider vinegar, 49 grams of water and 1 teaspoon of saccharine after a meal (bagel and orange juice) resulted in a 35% decrease [17]. Another way to lower down postprandial glycemia is walking around for 15 minutes after a meal instead of sitting down like most of us do [18].

6

Reduces Bacterial Infections on Teeth

In a test done on 100 teeth that was exposed to the E. faecalis bacteria has shown that apple cider vinegar was able to reduce bacterial count but not completely remove it. The test was done on teeth extracted through a root canal and not live teeth inside the mouth [19].

7

Research Says That Apple Cider Vinegar Can Help Type-2 Diabetics Improve Insulin Sensitivity

In a study done by the American Diabetes Association in 2004, 3 groups of people were given a concoction of 20 grams apple cider vinegar, 40 grams of water and a teaspoon of saccharine and after 2 minutes were give a meal that consisted of white bagel, orange juice and butter. These 3 groups include people with type 2 diabetes and non-diabetic individuals who are either insulin sensitive (these are control subjects) or insulin resistant. 29 people in all participated in the study. The study revealed that adding increased insulin sensitivity to insulin-resistant individuals by 34% and type 2 diabetics by 19% [20]. Dr. Mercola who also cited the study said that the type 2 diabetics who participated in the study improved blood glucose levels by 25% while pre-diabetics had lower blood glucose compared to health individuals (control subjects) who participated [21].

Vinegar Can Help in Losing Weight

There has been a new study done by Japanese researchers that acetic acid found in vinegar could prevent the accumulation of body fat. One test was done with mice the other with people. The test done on mice (the latest study) In their study laboratory, scientists fed two groups of mice with a high fat diet. Afterwards one group was given acetic acid and one group was not. The mice that were given acetic acid developed less body fat (up to 10%) compared to mice that were not given acetic acid [22]. Test done on people 175 obese but health people were divided into two groups. One group took water and the other vinegar along with their diets (they had similar diets). At the end of 12 weeks the people who took vinegar lost an average of 1 to 2 pounds [23]. While vinegar may have properties that can break down fats, nothing beats exercise and eating the right food.

Not backed by scientific research

The benefits listed here don’t are not backed by scientific research so take it with a grain of salt. Some of the home remedies have worked for people and I’ve linked out to the sources but remember that it may not work on you. I’ve added these to the list as a reference for you just in case you have one of these conditions and want to try something holistic to see if it cures it. Again this is for informational purposes only it is not meant to replace a doctor’s advice.

A Natural Teeth Whitener

Vinegar has been touted as a great cleaner that you can use to replace chemical cleaners but did you know that you can also use those same cleaning properties to whiten your teeth naturally? ACV is a natural cleaner that has antibacterial and disinfecting properties [24].

Tip: Dr. Glassman recommends people to gargle a mixture that includes two parts water and one part ACV for about a minute.
10

A Natural Treatment for Itchiness Caused by Bees, Mosquitos and more

It isn’t fun to be bitten by a mosquito or a bee, their stings itches like crazy. If you’re in an unfortunate situation where you are stung by one of these insects there’s apple cider vinegar to the rescue. ACV is effective because it balances the skin’s pH levels and less acidic than other types of vinegars. You can also use this to treat poison ivy rashes. Did you know that 18th century medical practitioners have used vinegar to treat poison ivy rash [25].

Tip: To treat itchy stings, saturate a cotton swab and rub it on the affected area.
11

All Natural Energy Drink

If you’re a basketball fan, you most likely are familiar with Galorade, a famous energy drink made famous by Michael Jordan. It turns out that it isn’t as healthy as the commercials may want us to believe. Why not try apple cider, along with lemon water it helps give you a natural energy boost because it contains potassium and enzymes. A good alternative minus the artificial flavoring is diluting 2 teaspoons of ACV with a glass of water [26]. To sweeten it a tiny bit, add a tablespoon of honey.

12

An All-Natural Deodorant

A synthetic deodorant works by blocking your sweat glands and preventing it from sweating which is one way our body naturally detoxes. Notice that if you’ve used a deodorant that your armpit feels dry even if you shower.

Tip: If you’re willing to experiment, try rubbing a little bit of ACV on your armpit. People say that it naturally deodorizes and since it has a similar pH level as the skin, it is safe to use. It’ll leave a vinegary scent but once it dries up the smell will go away [27]. If you’ve tried this let me know in the comments section below.
13

Arthritis Be Gone

This debilitating condition that affects over 50 million Americans is painful. My mother has it and she has trouble writing or using her fingers for long periods of time. There is no scientific research that has been done to prove that vinegar works on arthritis, there have been success stories of people using cider vinegar and feeling better afterwards – from not being able to walk for more than 30 minutes to walking as long as they want [28].

14

Can Increase Calcium Absorption

ACV isn’t rich in calcium per se but one of the ingredients in it, acetic acid can increase the body’s ability to absorb more minerals like calcium This would be beneficial to people (especially women) who are lactose intolerant still get their daily requirements of calcium through other sources like vegetables [29]. Research has been done to test this claim [30] but only to rats so it is inconclusive whether or not this will have the same effect on humans.

15

Clears Stuffy Nose

ACV has been touted in a number of articles as a great home remedy for clearing a runny nose because it contains potassium which helps unclog mucus and acetic acid that prevents bacteria growing [31].

16

Gets Rid of Warts

A wart is caused when a virus (the human papilloma virus) gets through the topmost protective layer of skin usually through a cut. This nasty skin condition is highly contagious and can grow on any part of the body [32].

Tip: One effective way of treating this skin condition is using a cotton ball soaked in apple cider vinegar. Apply the soaked cotton on the wart then hold it place with a band aid [33].
17

Helps Sooth Acid Reflux, Heartburn and Indigestion

Acid Reflux affects 25 to 40% of the adult population in the United States. One of the symptoms of acid reflux is a burning sensation of the esophagus which is located just behind the heart, hence the term “heartburn” [34, 35]. There are several factors that trigger this – alcohol, poor diet rich in fatty foods, overeating, being overweight. According to Thomas Corriher, stomach ailments like heartburn and indigestion isn’t caused by excess acid. On the contrary he states that it is caused by a lack of it so instead of using antacid or baking soda for treatment, he recommends using ACV because it is acidic in nature [36].

Tip: After taking a teaspoon of ACV and a glass of water, do not brush your teeth immediately because ACV being acidic will soften the enamel and the toothbrush will abrade this protective layer. Wait an hour after taking this remedy before brushing your teeth [37].
18

Improves the Gut

The key to a health body is a healthy stomach. It was Hippocrates who said that all “disease begins at the gut”. So it makes sense to take this seriously. GutHealth One way of improving digestive health according to Debbie Davis is drinking apple cider vinegar, especially if you’re eating starchy foods. Instead of being absorbed by the gut and going into the bloodstream, the excess starch feeds the good bacteria. Excess starch also causes elevated post meal blood glucose levels – another cause for diabetes.

Tip: To get this benefit Davis recommends buying unfiltered ACV, the cloudy type that contains the “mother” – that she says is full of probiotics which also helps with indigestion [38].
19

Improves Skin Health by balancing pH levels

One way ACV helps improve your skin’s appearance is through exfoliation were the acids found in the vinegar “digests” dead skin cells which then reveals a new layer of skin. Another reason why natural health supporters like to use ACV is because it has the same pH level as the skin – this helps balance pH and acidic mantle [39]. Scarlett Johanson maybe the biggest advocate of apple cider vinegar, as a brand endorser for Dolce & Gabbana, having flawless skin is a must in her job. What’s her secret? In an interview done with Elle UK, she says that she washes her face with yes you guessed it, apple cider vinegar.

20

Lowers Blood Pressure

Junji Takano narrates in his blog how consuming vinegar (not ACV in particular) helped him lower within 6 months. He consumed it by mixing 4 tablespoons with all of his side dishes [40].

21

Natural Remedy for Shingles

Shingles is caused by the varicella-zolster virus, the same virus that causes chickenpox. People who’ve had chickenpox in the past are at a higher risk of developing shingles because the virus can reactivate after being dormant for reasons not completely clear. Traditional medication involves the use of painkillers and antiviral medication. If the condition is severe enough antidepressant medication is prescribed [41]. One individual disagrees with this and he says that visiting a chiropractor would be more beneficial. He also recommended sprinkling cayenne pepper powder on the lesions then cover it with a rag soaked in ACV [42].

22

Rejuvenates Hair and Prevent Dandruff

Women will go through a lot when prepping for a big party – have their makeup done, fix their hair and put on that nice gown. The after party cleanup is also as tough, they’ll have to remove their makeup and wash their hair. One great way to remove styling products from your hair is using ACV. This holistic expert recommends diluting a third of a cup of ACV into 4 cups of water then pouring that mixture on your hair after shampooing then rinsing afterwards with cold water. In short this is an all-natural replacement for a conditioner. ACV will help balance the scalp’s pH levels, kill bacteria and prevent dandruff from forming [43]. If you want to be bolder, try this “no poo” method. If you head over at treehugger.com, Martha Norgaard agreed to do an experiment where she will not use regular shampoo and conditioner, instead they used baking soda and ACV mixed in water. She was very happy with the results saying “It’s softer, shinier, and less frizzy than before” [44].

23

Relieves Muscle Pain

Muscle soreness is inevitable after a hard work out and if you’re looking for some immediate relief, Lillian Beard from Health.com recommends wrapping a cloth soaked in apple cider vinegar to the affected area for 20 minutes. It is said to be effective because it draws out the lactic acid from the muscles – this is responsible for muscle soreness [45].

24

Removes Excess Candida

Candida is a fungus that is present in the body. This actually helps the body digest food and absorb nutrients. The problem lies when there is an excess of it where candida will break through the wall of the intestine creating what you call a “leaky gut”. Some of the symptoms include lack of energy, loss of memory, having severe allergies and skin infections [46]. One way to counteract excess candida is drinking ACV mixed with water and honey [47].

25

Removes Nasty Foot Odor

If you’re an active man, you know how sweat can build up in our feet inside the shoes and if you don’t take care of it – it can lead to smelly feet or worst athlete’s foot. One way of preventing or eliminating odors is rubbing your feet with paper towel soaked with ACV. It will balance the pH levels and remove the bad odor from your feet [48].

26

Soothes Those Nasty Sunburns

There are no scientific studies to back this claim but a lot of people have claimed that this works so here goes. To treat sunburn a lot of people recommend mixing apple cider vinegar with water to help soothe the burning sensation. Mixtures varies, Andrea from Botanical.com recommends two cups of ACV to a bathtub of water then soaking for 15 minutes [49]. This eHow article recommends mixing 2 tbsp. of ACV to 1 to 2 cups of cold water [50]. You can find more information about sunburn treatment here, here and here.

27

Stops Hiccups on Its Tracks

A father of a 13 year old girl made an anti-hiccup concoction of apple cider vinegar and sugar. It proved to be such a relief for her that she started her own company Hiccupops. Her idea was such a hit that it was featured in Mashable.

28

Takes Away Bad Breath

If you suffer from bad breath try to gargle half a teaspoon of ACV with a cup of water [51]. Foodmatters.tv says that it has antiseptic properties makes it a great natural remedy for bad breath [52]. Earthclinic.com says that it helps with your digestive health thus improving breath odor [53].

29

Treats Ear Infections

Ear infections are caused by either a bacteria or virus in the middle ear. Oftentimes it is a result of an illness like cold, flu or allergy [54]. If the doctor is not available you can try any of the home remedies listed in the link. One of the natural remedies for treating ear infections is apple cider vinegar. This particular remedy calls for mixing one part water and one part apple cider vinegar (or alcohol) then soaking a cotton ball. You then take the cotton ball and plug it in the ear and leave it for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes lay down on your side then take out the cotton ball to drain the liquid. This according to the article will remove fungus inside the ear.

30

Treats Leg Cramps

Remember one of the benefits I mentioned earlier how ACV helps calcium absorption (it also improves magnesium absporption)? Well this actually helps in treating leg cramps as well [55].

31

Treats Sore Throat

Sometimes the best treatment for sore throat can be found in your home. ACV is one such remedy, since it is acidic, germs will have a hard time surviving in this acidic environment. Add a tablespoon of ACV to 6 to 8 ounces of water. Make two glasses, gargle the first glass then drink the second glass. Do this every hour [56]. This mixture can also be effective on strep throat.

32

32. Yeast Infection Treatment

By average 3 out of 4 women will experience having yeast infection at one point or another in their lives. Women who suffer from it will experience itching and some burning sensation. Normally it goes away by itself without the need for any medication but if the itchiness becomes uncomfortable, one home remedy recommended by OneMedical.com is adding two cups of vinegar into a tub of warm water then soaking for around 15 minutes – women have seen improvement after soaking 3 to 4 times [57].

How to consume apple cider vinegar?

Never drink apple cider vinegar in its purest form, it is highly acidic and can cause the teeth’s enamel to erode. The high acidic nature of ACV can also damage the tissues in your mouth and throat [58] as well as the digestive tract. Also avoid consuming too much of this as it can also lead to low potassium levels and low bone density. Mix with water A straightforward approach in consuming ACV is diluting it in water. Mix in one to two tablespoons of vinegar with a glass of water. You can also add honey for added flavor but I’d recommend drinking it without honey. Add it to salad dressings If you eat a lot of salads, adding ACV to your homemade dressings is another great way of integrating this to your diet.

How much should I take?

If you want to consume this as a part your daily health routine there is no hard scientific study on how much is ACV is safe. Bragg (an ACV manufacturer) recommends individuals to take 3 “cocktails” or a mixture of 1 to 2 teaspoons of vinegar along with 1 to 2 teaspoons of raw honey to a glass of distilled water [59]. You could also add this when making homemade vinaigrettes or as a meat seasoning when cooking Asian dishes.

Use Organic Apple Cider Vinegar

Bragg Apple CiderNutritionists and health experts agree that if you’re consuming apple cider don’t buy the filtered or distilled variety but go for the unfiltered one like Bragg. It is made from organic apple cider that contains 5.14% acetic acid and every tablespoon will give you 11mg of potassium. Since ACV is made from apples, it contains a substance called malic acid that has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that can be used to treat myocardial ischemia (a type of heart disease) [60]. The great thing about vinegar it has other uses as well, people have used it to as an all-natural home cleaner, pet flea remover and even an aftershave. If you’re using it for cleaning, an ordinary white vinegar would do, it’s cheaper too. If you’ve found success using ACV to treat any of these conditions please let me know in the comments section below. If this article has been useful for you, please spread the word. Garrick Dee

Cancer and silver

 

Scientists say that old wives tales about the precious metal being a ‘silver bullet’ to beat the Big C could be true.

The metal already has a wide range of medicinal uses and is a common antiseptic, antibiotic and means of purifying water in the third world.

Good news: Silver can kill some cancers as effectively as chemotherapy and with potentially fewer side effects, new research has claimed

Good news: Silver can kill some cancers as effectively as chemotherapy and with potentially fewer side effects, new research has claimed

And British researchers now say that silver compounds are as effective at killing certain cancer cells as a leading chemotherapy drug, but with potentially far fewer side-effects.

They compared it to Cisplatin, currently used to treat a wide variety of cancers, but known to have harsh side effects including nausea, vomiting and even kidney damage.

Silver is used already in everyday products such as deodorant with no known side-effects, and could make for a potentially cheaper alternative to platinum-based Cisplatin.

Results, published in journal Dalton Transactions, showed that these silver-compounds were ‘as effective as Cisplatin’ at killing cancer with potentially fewer side effects.

While the team are still unsure about how exactly silver battles cancer, they think its effectiveness may be caused by the structure surrounding silver atoms, known as its ligand.

Way forward: Researchers from the University of Leeds found that silver could be used to help defeat breast cancer

They think this may help release the silver ion into cells when it enters the body, killing any cancer.

Study author Dr Charlotte Willans plans to spend the next year looking closely at what effect silver has on both cancerous and healthy cells, and whether it could be a safe and effective new anti-cancer drug.

She said: ‘It’s certainly an exciting discovery, although I think we have a lot of work to do in the future. It opens the doors in terms of what we can do and investigate.

‘Getting these results also gives us the opportunity we need to apply for funding to take the research further.

‘This could lead to a cheaper, less toxic alternative to current treatments for cancer.’

Explaining the research in greater detail, Dr Willans added: ‘As many are unfortunately aware, chemotherapy can be a very gruelling experience for the patient.

‘Finding effective, yet non-toxic drugs is an ongoing problem, but these preliminary results are an important step in solving it.

‘Our research has looked at the structure which surrounds a central silver atom. This “shrubbery” is what determines how reactive it is and what it will interact with.

‘Our research has used different types of these ligands to see which is the most effective against cancer cells.’

You Want To Vaccinate My Child? No Problem, Just Sign This Form

Sunday, April 12, 2015 0:35

Informed_consent2893 (1)

 

I have yet to meet a Physician that will sign this form now downloaded by hundreds of parents. The reason they won’t sign is two-fold: First, they do not want to place themselves in a vulnerable position of being negligent for not providing informed consent to thousands of other parents; and second, many of them realize after their own extensive research that the risks far outweigh any benefits when it comes to vaccination.

It’s been over a year since hundreds of parents have downloaded this form and there are still no reports of any signatures. Many physicians won’t even look at the form while they dismiss a parent’s anti-vaccination stance as ridiculous. The behavior is a clear indication of a very misinformed Physician who does not have his or her patient’s best interests at heart. They are not willing to inform their patients of the risks, only the benefits they feel are acceptable. They are not open-minded to any other side of the debate except their own biased view passed down through the medical system.

Then are those Physicians who have questioned the vaccination schedules and will pursue their own research. Many of them are now awakening themselves thanks to ongoing research and pressure from parents and even other colleagues to look at other perspectives besides their own indoctrination. If you are pressured by any Physician to vaccinate, please download and print this form (and send us a Physician signed copy if possible). Assertively state to your Doctor that it is the only way you will fully informed to consider vaccination, and that an analyses of the risks and benefits will better allow you evaluate the decision.

100% of Physicians approached with this form have so far declined to sign it.

Hepatitis B

I understand that 60 percent of patients who are vaccinated for Hepatitis B will lose detectable antibodies to Hepatitis B within 12 years. I understand that in 1996 only 54 cases of Hepatitis B were reported to the CDC in the 0-1 year age group. I understand that in the VAERS, there were 1,080 total reports of adverse reactions from Hepatitis B vaccine in 1996 in the 0-1 year age group, with 47 deaths reported.

I understand that 50 percent of patients who contract Hepatitis B develop no symptoms after exposure. I understand that 30 percent will develop only flu-like symptoms and will have lifetime immunity. I understand that 20 percent will develop the symptoms of the disease, but that 95 percent will fully recover and have lifetime immunity.

I understand that 5 percent of the patients who are exposed to Hepatitis B will become chronic carriers of the disease. I understand that 75 percent of the chronic carriers will live with an asymptomatic infection and that only 25 percent of the chronic carriers will develop chronic liver disease or liver cancer, 10-30 years after the acute infection. The following scientific studies have been performed to demonstrate the safety of the Hepatitis B vaccine in children under the age of 5 years.

Turmeric’s ‘Smart Kill’ Properties Put Chemo & Radiation To Shame

Turmeric’s ‘Smart Kill’ Properties Put Chemo & Radiation To Shame

 

 

Turmeric's 'Smart Kill' Properties Put Chemo & Radiation To Shame

 

The ancient Indian spice turmeric strikes again! A new study finds turmeric extract selectively and safely killing cancer stem cells in a way that chemo and radiation can not.

 

A groundbreaking new study published in the journal Anticancer Research reveals that one of the world’s most extensively researched and promising natural compounds for cancer treatment: the primary polyphenol in the ancient spice turmeric known as curcumin, has the ability to selectively target cancer stem cells, which are at the root of cancer malignancy, while having little to no toxicity on normal stem cells, which are essential for tissue regeneration and longevity.

 

Titled, “Curcumin and Cancer Stem Cells: Curcumin Has Asymmetrical Effects on Cancer and Normal Stem Cells, (just click this link to access the full article)

 

” the study describes the wide range of molecular mechanisms presently identified by which curcumin attacks cancer stem cells (CSCs), which are the minority subpopulation of self-renewing cells within a tumor colony, and which alone are capable of producing all the other cells within a tumor, making them the most lethal, tumoriogenic of all cells within most if not all cancers.  Because CSCs are resistant to chemotherapy, radiation, and may even be provoked towards increased invasiveness through surgical intervention, they are widely believed to be responsible for tumor recurrence and the failure of conventional treatment.

The study identified the following 8 molecular mechanisms by which curcumin targets and kills cancer stem cells:

  • Down-regulation of interleukin-6 (IL-6): IL-6 is classified as a cytokine (a potent biomolecule released by the immune system) and modulates both immunity and inflammation. It’s over expression has been linked to the progression from inflammation to cancer. Curcumin inhibits IL-6 release, which in turn prevents CSC stimulation.
  • Down-regulation of interleukin-8 (IL-8): IL-8, another cytokine, is released after tumor cell death, subsequently stimulating CSCs to regrow the tumor and resist chemotherapy. Curcumin both inhibits IL-8 production directly and indirectly.
  • Down-regulation of interleukin-1 (IL-1): IL-1, a family of cytokines, are involved in response to injury and infection, with IL-1 β playing a key role in cancer cell growth and the stimulation of CSCs. Curcumin inhibits IL-1 both directly and indirectly.
  • Decrease CXCR1 and CXCR2 binding: CXCR1 and CXCR2 are proteins expressed on cells, including CSCs, which respond to the aforementioned cytokines in a deleterious manner. Curcumin has been found to not only block cytokine release, but their binding to these two cellular targets.
  • Modulation of the Wnt signaling pathway: The Wnt signaling pathway regulates a wide range of processes during embryonic development, but are also dsyregulated in cancer. Curcumin has been found to have a corrective action on Wnt signaling.
  • Modulation of the Notch Pathway: The Notch signaling pathway, also involved in embryogenesis, plays a key role in regulating cell differentiation, proliferation and programmed cell death (apoptosis), as well as the functioning of normal stem cells. Aberrant Notch signaling has been implicated in a wide range of cancers. Curcumin has been found to suppress tumor cells along the Notch pathway.
  • Modulation of the Hedgehog Pathways: Another pathway involved in embryogenesis, the Hedgehog pathway also regulates normal stem cell activity. Abnormal functioning of this pathway is implicated in a wide range of cancers and in the stimulation of CSCs and associated increases in tumor recurrence after conventional treatment. Curcumin has been found to inhibit the Hedgehog pathway through a number of different mechanisms.
  • Modulation of the FAK/AKT/FOXo3A Pathway: This pathway plays a key role in regulating normal stem cells, with aberrant signaling stimulating CSCs, resulting once again in tumor recurrence and resistance to chemotherapy. Curcumin has been found
  • in multiple studies to destroy CSCs through inhibiting this pathway.

As you can see through these eight examples above, curcumin exhibits a rather profound level of complexity, modulating numerous molecular pathways simultaneously. Conventional cytotoxic chemotherapy is incapable of such delicate and “intelligent” behavior, as it preferentially targets fast-replicating cells by damaging their DNA in the vulnerable mitosis stage of cell division, regardless of whether they are benign, healthy or cancerous cells.  Curcumin’s selective cytotoxicity, on the other hand, targets the most dangerous cells – the cancer stem cells – which leaving unharmed the normal cells, as we will now learn more about below.

 

 

Turmeric's 'Smart Kill' Properties Put Chemo & Radiation To Shame

Curcumin and Normal Stem Cells

Normal stem cells (NSCs) are essential for health because they are responsible for differentiating into normal cells that are needed to replace damaged or sick ones. If curcumin were to kill normal cells, like radiation and chemotherapy, it would not provide a compelling alternative to these treatments.  The study addressed this point:

“The safety of curcumin has been long established, as it has been used for centuries as a dietary spice. The question arises as to why curcumin does not seem to have the same deleterious effects on normal stem cells (NSCs) as it does on CSCs. There are several possible reasons that curcumin has toxic effects on CSCs, while sparing NSCs.”

The study offered three potential explanations for curcumin’s differential or selective cytotoxicity:

  • Malignant cells take in much more curcumin than normal cells.
  • Curcumin alters the microenvironment of cells in such a way that is adverse to CSCs and beneficial to NSCs.
  • Curcumin may not only directly attack CSCs, but may encourage them to differentiate into non-lethal, more benign cells.

Concluding Remarks

This study adds growing support to the idea that safe, time-tested, natural substances are superior to synthetic ones. Given the evidence that a safe and effective alternative may already exist, chemotherapy, radiation and even surgery may no longer be justified as the first-line standard of care for cancer treatment. In fact, a significant body of evidence now implicates these treatments in worsening prognosis, and in some cases driving cancer stem cell enrichment in tumors. Radiotherapy, for instance, has been found to induce cancer stem cell like properties in breast cancer cells, essentially increasing their malignancy and tumoriogenicity by 30 fold.  This is hardly progress when one considers the role that CSCs play, especially in contributing to post-treatment secondary cancers.

Turmeric and its components, of course, are not FDA approved drugs, and by definition the FDA will not allow an unapproved substance, natural or synthetic, to prevent, treat, diagnosis or cure a disease.  This means that you will not be seeing it offered by an oncologist as an alternative to chemotherapy or radiation any time soon.  This does not, however, mean that it does not work. We have gathered over 1500 citations from the National Library of Medicine’s bibliographic database MEDLINE, accessible through pubmed.gov, and which can be viewed on our database here: Turmeric Research, showing that curcumin and related turmeric components possess significant anti-cancer activity.  Truth be told, the information is so extensive, revealing over 700 possible health benefits, that I believe this plant embodies a form of intelligence and even compassion. You can learn more about this supposition here: Turmeric’s Healing Power: A Physical Manifestation of Compassion?  I also discuss this concept in my lecture, Food As Medicine Rebooted, which you can watch below:

Of course, the point is not to wait until one has such a severe health problem that taking heroic doses of spices or herbs becomes the focus. It is important to remember that ancient cultures used spices like turmeric mainly in culinary doses, as part of their dietary practices. These smaller amounts, delivered mainly as whole food extracts, likely constituted effective preventive strategies – perhaps preventing the need for radical, heroic intervention later in life. If you read our previous article, Turmeric: A Wellness Promoting Tonic at Low Doses, Research Reveals, you’ll see this point explored in greater depth in light of a human clinical study.

Change your lifestyle, change your genes – the power is in you!

Homeopathic Alternative to anti-depressant Drugs

EVER HEARD THAT A “CHANGE IN DIET, EXERCISE MAY CHANGE YOUR GENES”? HERE’S THE STUDY!

 

Study: After 3 months, lifestyle changes made a difference in 500 genes

WASHINGTON – Comprehensive lifestyle changes including a better diet and more exercise can lead not only to a better physique, but also to swift and dramatic changes at the genetic level, U.S. researchers said on Monday.

In a small study, the researchers tracked 30 men with low-risk prostate cancer who decided against conventional medical treatment such as surgery and radiation or hormone therapy.

The men underwent three months of major lifestyle changes, including eating a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes and soy products, moderate exercise such as walking for half an hour a day, and an hour of daily stress management methods such as meditation.

As expected, they lost weight, lowered their blood pressure and saw other health improvements. But the researchers found more profound changes when they compared prostate biopsies taken before and after the lifestyle changes.

‘’After the three months, the men had changes in activity in about 500 genes — including 48 that were turned on and 453 genes that were turned off.

‘It’s all in my genes, what can I do?’ 
The activity of disease-preventing genes increased while a number of disease-promoting genes, including those involved in prostate cancer and breast cancer, shut down, according to the study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

The research was led by Dr. Dean Ornish, head of the Preventive Medicine Research Institute in Sausalito, California, and a well-known author advocating lifestyle changes to improve health.

“It’s an exciting finding because so often people say, ’Oh, it’s all in my genes, what can I do?’ Well, it turns out you may be able to do a lot,” Ornish, who is also affiliated with the University of California, San Francisco, said in a telephone interview.

“’In just three months, I can change hundreds of my genes simply by changing what I eat and how I live?’ That’s pretty exciting,” Ornish said. “The implications of our study are not limited to men with prostate cancer.”

Ornish said the men avoided conventional medical treatment for prostate cancer for reasons separate from the study. But in making that decision, they allowed the researchers to look at biopsies in people with cancer before and after lifestyle changes.

“It gave us the opportunity to have an ethical reason for doing repeat biopsies in just a three-month period because they needed that anyway to look at their clinical changes (in their prostate cancer),” Ornish said.

Doctors making money by diagnosing cancer in healthy people?

More Doctors Confessing To Intentionally Diagnosing Healthy People With Cancer To Make Money 

 

Cancer Scam

 

 

Chiropractors who administer unnecessary adjustments after an automobile accident in order to collect maximum insurance payments does occur sometimes. But as far as the patients go, no harm, no foul. Maybe even some benefits for other ailments not caused by the accident.

It’s known that chemotherapy and radiation are harmful, however, and regardless of their claims, their true cure rate is under five percent. The cancer industry likes to claim higher rates based on remaining alive for five years or remissions that don’t last. But even after that, many don’t live much longer or their overall health is adversely affected.

Deaths during chemo or radiation are attributed to the disease and never to the treatments, though it has been observed that chemo and radiation do worsen health and even kill. The mainstream cancer industry would fail without insurance to cover their outrageous costs since so few can afford them, while much less expensive and more effective cancer treatments are not covered by insurance in the USA. Economically not so rational, eh?

In one decade alone, oncologists’ incomes have increased over 85 percent even as patient visits increased only 12 percent. Could that be due somewhat to allowing oncologists who administer chemo out of their own offices and clinics to purchase chemotherapy drugs at wholesale and mark them up two fold, ya think?

Dr. Lorraine Day cure her cured her breast cancer naturally. Here’s what she knows about chemotherapy.  Listen to her here :

 

Exploiting Cancer Fear and Extorting Insurance Coverages

Since testing for early intervention that can contribute to cancer, such as mammograms and PSA tests that often lead to injurious biopsies, a doctor can get cynical enough to exploit the insurance coverages by administering harsh chemo drugs if the patient shouldn’t receive them or even if the patient doesn’t have cancer at all!

One not so uncommon practice is to maintain high chemo dosing and/or radiation with heavy morphine dosing added as an older patient is hopelessly on the way out, sometimes right up to the patient’s last breath. Of course, Medicare or Medicaid usually get the bill.

Journalist Tony Isaacs reports in his article “Dying Cancer Patients are Being Milked of Every Last Dollar” how studies from the journal “The Oncologist” and the journal “Cancer” reported that one in five dying patients are given chemo with two weeks of their deaths and a third of terminal cancer patients aren’t sent to hospice until they have three days or less to live.

Meanwhile, 91 percent of dying cancer patients were given radiation treatments, most of them dying in agony from those treatments before they could even finish them. Would you want your parent or grandparent to go through this?   Listen to this patient here:

 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eK1la9tcas8

 

Tony also reported how 25 percent of Medicare expenses occurred in Virginia during patients’ final month. So as long as the money is available, pumping dying older patients with toxic drugs and cooking them with radiation treatments is part of that good ole’ standard of care, the culpability cover for damages from conventional medicine.

Meanwhile, most of those patients are heavily discouraged from seeking less harmful and more effective alternative treatments.

With older folks especially, Medicare is usually the piggy bank that gets exploited even though that program does not usually completely pay what oncologists normally invoice for their “services”. And since Medicare usually doesn’t cover the whole bill, the patient or patient’s immediate family is responsible for the remainder of the bill that is zealously pursued by collection agencies for those doctors.

A Recent Real Life Incident of Medical Insurance Fraud

It may be easy to scam a private insurance company somewhat and suffer a refusal to pay or slap on the wrist. But Medicare is a federal program monitored state by state that has ambitious federal prosecutors sniffing for cheaters due to the extreme amounts of payouts that are now suspicious. This is how one doctor in Michigan got sniffed out in 2014.

Dr. Farid Fata, a prominent cancer doctor in Michigan surprisingly confessed to intentionally and wrongfully diagnosing relatively healthy people with cancer for the purpose of profiteering from chemo drug sales.

His crimes were so egregious that the prosecuting federal attorney Barbara McQuade sought a life sentence, not so much for the $62 million dollars he had fraudulently bilked Medicare for over a six year period, but for the harm done to many of his 1200 patients over that time.

According to a retired oncologist, Dr. Sayed Mohammed, who has noticed this trend over the last 10 years, “Many of these unscrupulous physicians are like businessmen without a conscience. The only difference is they have your health and trust in their hands – a very dangerous combination when money is involved.”
