There are many times where low moods/depression can be directly caused by and outside source such as bad day, tough times or frustrating events. However many times people wake up feeling unfocused, lethargic, unmotivated and depressed without any specific reason. This may be due to an internal imbalance in amino acids which can be helped easily through specific amino acid supplements. Click below to download an eBook which explains why we have low moods and teaches natural ways to boost your mood and get you feeling great.

Nutritional Support For People With Cancer

Cancer is always with us. When it manifests in the form of a tumor mass is evidence that the body’s immune and self regulating capacities can no longer manage the cancer phenomenon. Our nutritional protocols have helped people with cancer to live long and happy lives. Our protocol can be broken down into three basic components: Supplementations, diet and detoxification routines.

General Guidelines

It is essential that you follow the protocol as outlined. You are asked to not substitute supplements from other companies. We continually qualify supplements, incorporating specific products that we find will provide the optimal therapeutic results we seek.

You will drink a minimum of 8 glasses of filtered water daily. You will be required to bathe using a shower filter to avoid absorbing chlorine though the skin and air.

Stainless steel or non-leaching cookware such as corning cookingware is used to prepare your foods.

Pancreatic Enzymes

Specialized pork derived pancreatic enzymes are the cornerstone of our supplementation program. Enzymes work by traveling through the bloodstream to the site of the tumor and digestion the specific protein of the tumor mass, without harming the body’s healthy tissues. This story was initiated a century ago by a Scottish embryologist names John Beard. Beard stated, in effect, that cancer was pregnancy in the wrong place and time. It was a similarity in the biological features of embryonic trophoblasts and cancer cells that prompted John Beard to propose his trohoblastic theory of cancer in the early 1900’s. Beard first proposed in 1906 that pancreatic proteolytic enzymes, in addition to their well-know digestive functions, represented the body’s main defense against cancer. He further proposed that pancreatic enzymes would most likely be useful as nutritional support for cancer patients.

After Beards death in 1924, the enzyme therapy was all but lost. In some cases alternative therapies, such as Dr Kelley, have rediscovered Dr. Beards work and used pancreatic proteolyic enzymes as a natural defense against cancer occurrences.


The individual diets may include wild salmon, organic eggs, vegetables, nuts and seed, legumes, sprouts, sprouted bread and berried. No canned or processed foods are allowed.

Detoxification routines

Scientists estimate that you have between 70 and 100 trillion cells in your body. This means you can have over 70 trillion garbage cans that need to be emptied. It is critical to process and excrete this metabolic waste. We may incorporate a wide range of detoxifications options in an individualized program, but coffee enemas and infrared sauna therapy are fundamental components to our program.

Coffee enemas

One of the oldest health procedures used still today, coffee enemas are used to enhance liver function.

Caffeine is absorbed via the hemorrhoidal or portal vein and dilates the bile ducts.

“Because the enema is generally held for 10 to 15 minutes and all the blood in the body passes through the liver every 3 minutes, these enemas represent a form of dialysis of blood across the gut wall” (Healing Newsletter, #13, May-June 1986).

Infrared Saunas

Saunas are very valuable and also convenient for home use.

Saunas support liver and kidney detoxification. A specific kind of sauna is incorporated to improve circulation, oxygenation, and immune function while eliminating toxins through our largest eliminative organ, the skin.

For any additional information on our cancer protocol and screening tests please contact our office at 561.313.9117

HCG Diets - Are They Safe?

HCG supplements combined with extremely low calorie diets have become a big trend in weight loss. With the short period of time that it has been around no one truly knows about the safety of these diets. Here is what we do know:

Most people know of HCG as the "pregnancy hormone" or the hormone that makes the EPT result in a positive test when it is detected in the urine. Our body views pregnancy as a foreign invader and it would attack the embryo in the absence of HCG. HCG disguises the embryo so that our immune system will not attack and degrade the trophoblastic protein layer allowing the embryo to mature. HCG is also used as a cancer screening test because it will be elevated in urine and blood when a tumor is present. Cancer, similar to pregnancy, is viewed as a foreign invader but is disguised by HCG which promotes its ability to grow. Research shows that HCG compromises the immune system and may promote cancer. I believe there are many other forms of weight loss that are much safer and will produce great results as well without the risk of cancer or decreased immunity.

Attached is an article called "HCG for weight loss - not a prudent idea" by Ralph W. Moss, Ph.D which explains more in depth about HCG for weight loss.
