Breast Cancer
Fibrocystic Breast Disease (Benign Cystic Mastitus)

“This disease has certainly frightened many women who have found painful lumps in their breasts.

"It is responsible for almost three fourths of all breast surgery”.
At Sinai Hospital in Baltimore, researchers have been using Vitamin E successfully in the treatment of these cysts for several years".
Ronald L Watson, PhD, Health Science Center, University of Arizona

“Up to 90% of all cases (of breast cancer) can be attributed to over exposure to x-rays”.

Lutein and Zeaxanthin are two carotenoids that exist in high concentrations in the macula, retina and crystalline lens of the eye. Studies show that both of these carotenoids protect the eye from macular degeneration and cataract formation.

Good sources of lutein are dark green vegetables. Good sources of Zeaxanthin are yellow colored fruits and vegetables, such as peaches and corn. Of course, both can be obtained through food supplements.

"It should be noted that even naysayers who attempt to discredit alternative medicine cannot refute the scientifically documented link between supplementation and the prevention and treatment of cataracts. The proof is incontrovertible, like the sun rising in the east". Gary P Null

People with diabetes have trouble regulating use of the glucose (blood sugar) produced from the carbohydrates they eat. Insulin is routinely prescribed for this purpose.

The problem with insulin is that it is prescribed universally, not just to those with insulin deficiencies.

Juvenile Diabetes, also known as Type I, is generally characterized by a true insulin deficiency.

In most adult-onset, or Type II Diabetes, the body produces sufficient insulin, but the cells do not respond to it. Glucose remains in the blood, creating a condition of hyperglycemia, or high blood sugar. In this scenario, there is a need to increase insulin sensitivity; taking more insulin will not accomplish this.

Scientists have found that the dependence of patients with adult-onset diabetes on insulin can be decreased, even eliminated, through the manipulation of their diet.

Brewer's Yeast, which is rich in Chromium, improves sugar metabolism. Brewer's Yeast also reduces cholesterol levels, which improves insulin sensitivity.

Vitamin E lowers blood sugar.


Twenty-eight million Americans have Osteoporosis, which is responsible for 1.5 million fractures each year, at a cost of $10 to $15 billion in medical expenses.

Another 18 million Americans suffer from low bone mass, which increases their chances of eventually contracting the disease.

With Osteoporosis, the bones become porous, thereby increasing the occurrence of fractures, which usually occur in the hip, spine or wrist.

The conventional medical approach to Osteoporosis involves the introduction of estrogen into the body. Unfortunately, estrogen replacement therapy has been linked to an increased risk of heart attack, stroke and cancer.

A low dietary intake of animal products and a high intake of plant foods facilitate the growth and repair of the bones.

Green leafy vegetables provide abundant sources of Vitamin K, beta-carotene, Vitamin C, fiber, calcium and magnesium, all of which promote the development of a healthy skeletal structure.

Vitamin K is responsible for the formation of osteocalcin, the essential calcium building matrix protein involved in bone mineralization. Calcium is vital because it is a key nutrient in maintaining bone density.
