Gloria Bonuccelli, email: gloria.bonuccelli@gmail.com Keywords: cancer stem-like cells; metabolic heterogeneity; metabolic cell fractionation; mitochondria; NADH Received: January 10, 2017 Accepted: January 25, 2017 Published: February 16, 2017 Abstract Here, we assembled a broad molecular “tool-kit” to interrogate the role of metabolic heterogeneity in the propagation of cancer stem-like cells (CSCs). Neil Gorsuch nominated for U.S. Supreme Court FDA quietly bans powerful life-saving intravenous Vitamin C. It would be naive to think that the FDA endeavors to protect the public’s health as its primary focus.

Indeed, that would be a conflict of interest, as it serves its master, the pharmaceutical industry. Has the Food and Drug Administration engineered a shortage of intravenous vitamin C as part of an overall attack on natural and non-toxic approaches to healing that compete with prescription drugs? An analysis by Natural Blaze would suggest that the answer is yes. Natural Blaze claims that a critical shortage of IV bags in general followed an FDA ban on the mass production of intravenous vitamin C. The FDA limited the availability of IV-C and the pharmaceutical industry halted production of injectable vitamins and minerals, after a 60 minute story about the miraculous recovery of a swine flu patient on life support. Because of the shortage of IV-C, doctors called upon compounding pharmacies to produce it.

Frankincense and Cancer - What You Need to Know About This Essential Oil | The Truth About Cancer. As they made their iconic trek from the Far East to witness the invaluable gift of the newborn King, the three wise men from the biblical account of the birth of Jesus came bearing their own gifts. One of them, frankincense, possesses a value much more significant than just a fragrant incense. It demonstrates powerful anti-cancer effects that even in modern times legitimize this precious oil as being truly fit for a king. The oil of frankincense has been used for thousands of years to quell disease-causing inflammation, support heightened immunity, and prevent dangerous infections.

But many people remain unaware of the added cancer-fighting potential of this precious serum, which researchers from the University of Leicester in the UK (among others), have confirmed through rigorous scientific testing. Also known as boswellia, frankincense claims as part of its vast nutrient profile a unique compound known as acetyl-11-keto-beta-boswellic acid, or AKBA for short. ALTERNATIVE CANCER THERAPY PART II | Vitality Magazine | Toronto Canada alternative health, natural medicine and green living. Cancer rates are increasing throughout the developed world and current treatment approaches are not effectively changing this trend. More and more people are now looking for alternatives to conventional therapies. But with so much misinformation available on the internet it is difficult to know if natural and alternative therapies are effective and safe. In Part I of this article series (Oct/2014) I discussed the most common questions about natural and integrative cancer care: Is it safe in conjunction with chemo and radiation?

; What makes up an anti-cancer diet? ; and more. Other countries offer integrative and holistic approaches to treating cancer with natural therapies used alongside chemotherapy, radiation and surgery – but some of these therapies still are not available in Canada. High Dose IV Vitamin C Vitamin C is one of the most well known and widely used natural cancer therapies. The second mechanism of action is actually a pro-oxidant or directly anti-cancer effect. 1. 1. 1. Vitamin C Saves Dying Man - Jeffrey Dach MD. By Jeffrey Dach MD The Allan Smith Story – TV Documentary Allan Smith, a New Zealand Dairy farmer, contracted Swine Flu while away on vacation in Fiji.

When he returned home, the flu quickly evolved into severe pneumonia which left him in a coma on Life Support in the Intensive Care Unit. Chest Xrays showed the lungs were completely filled with fluid with an “opaque” appearance called “white out”. Above Left image: IV Bag with Vitamin C, Courtesy of wikimedia Commons. Doctors Agree to Try IV Vitamin C The Doctors were in unanimous agreement that IV Vitamin C would be useless and a waste of time, and that the patient will certainly die.

Dramatic Recovery That day, Allan Smith was given 25 grams of IV Vitamin C in the evening and another 25 grams in the morning. Another Battle For Vitamin C Soon after starting the IV vitamin C, Alan could be taken off ECMO life support, and started breathing on his own.
