An Anti-Cancer Diet?

August 3rd, 2014
Fruits and Veggies Image 2Over the last 12 years of using my Healing Spectrums for Health and Wholeness Method, I have had countless sessions and consultations with individuals who have faced various types of health issues–including many of the more serious physical and emotional illnesses. While I am not a doctor and I make no claims to “cure” anything, this experience has given me much greater understanding of the physiological and emotional systems involved in those various health conditions and diseases.

Using the Healing Spectrums Method provides a deeper view of some of the more subtle physical elements that play a foundational role in recurring or ongoing symptoms of illness. This is the kind of valuable tool that, unfortunately, is rarely even considered, much less used in our current allopathic, pharmaceutical-based practice of medicine. But that’s another story…

The Healing Spectrums Method spontaneously enlivens coherence, as exhibited by specific and unique brainwave changes, that spontaneously activates and accelerates your body’s natural healing and regenerative processes. So, in other words, I don’t treat any illness or symptoms. It is your own body’s inherent healing systems that do that–you are the healer!

What about Diet?
We all have to be pro-active and take responsibility for our own health by gaining a basic understanding of how our bodies work and what they need to have the best chance for healthy functioning and disease prevention. 

Ultimately it is our responsibility to take charge of our own health and well-being. We don’t want to wait for illnesses to emerge and only then seek medical remedy or other options. I believe it is important for us to learn from new research and studies that can provide a more practical and preventative approach to maintaining good health. Therefore, in the course of my work, I often come across such information that can be useful and I’m happy to pass it along to my clients.

I have re-posted an article below from the UndergroundHealthReporter.com with important information for those who are interested in potential preventative/dietary changes that could be helpful in regards to certain types of cancers. Of course, I realize that for those who are dealing with this particular disease, there can be an “overload” of information from well-meaning friends, acquaintances, and others about the “latest and greatest” new approach. It can certainly become overwhelming! However, if this information resonates with you, I suggest you consider it as a possible addition to whatever approach or approaches you may be using. (Please remember that further studies are needed to determine the true efficacy of a methionine restriction diet.)
There really is no one cure-all that will work for everyone in every case. 
But as they say, “knowledge is power…”
See the Methionine Restriction Diet below:

Methionine Restriction: An Anti-Cancer Diet
   by Danica Collins

Did You Know…that restricting your intake of this essential amino acid can starve cancer cells and increase your lifespan?

Amino acids are the building blocks of protein.  They provide structure to our cells, assist in wound healing and tissue repair, help store and transport nutrients, and impact virtually all of our bodily functions.  There is one amino acid, however, that may be doing more harm than good when it is consumed in abundance.  Methionine, one of the eight essential amino acids, has been shown to play an active part in cancer cell proliferation and malignant tumor growth.  Methionine restriction may be the key to stopping cancer in its tracks and adding many more healthy years to your life!

Starve Cancer Cells with a Low Methionine Diet

A little over 40 years ago scientists discovered that cancers, including breast, colon, ovary, prostate, and skin cancers, depend on methionine to survive.  When cells grown in a petri dish were deprived of methionine, normal, healthy cells thrived, while cancer cells died, leading researchers to surmise that cancer cells need methionine to persist.

Testing this theory on fresh tumors removed from cancer patients yielded the same results—many cancers that don’t respond well to traditional chemotherapy seem to have a biochemical defect that renders them methionine dependent.  Researchers from Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas showed that methionine restriction offers promise as a treatment for advanced cancers of the prostate, lung, and gastrointestinal tract.

Eat a Low Methionine Diet

You can easily lower your intake of methionine by choosing the right foods.  It appears that plant-based diets are the most supportive, as animal-based foods such as chicken and fish contain the highest levels of methionine.  Milk, red meat, and eggs fare a bit better, with fruits, nuts, veggies, legumes, and grains the lowest in methionine.  A vegan diet, however, is not entirely protective, as certain nuts and beans are deceptively high in methionine.  Avoid Brazil nuts, soy beans, and wheat germ, and opt for lentils and almonds instead.

Want to practice methionine restriction?  Remember, methionine is an essential amino acid that we need for protein building, so don’t go overboard.  Animal studies have shown that without methionine the body is susceptible to fatty liver disease, anemia, and drastic and life-threatening weight loss.

    Testimonials:
    "I had a bad reaction from inadvertently breathing some vapors from the glue I was using to decorate a costume that I would be wearing in a play a couple of days later. My throat closed down and I could hardly speak. I felt terrible and had no energy. I couldn't imagine how on earth I would be able to perform, as I had many speaking lines to perform. After a session with Thomas, I quickly regained my energy and I was able to perform without difficulty. This really saved the day for me! Thanks, Thomas." -- JB, Actor, Fairfield, IA

    "I had chronic ankle pain due to working in an auto manufacturing plant and walking on concrete for most of my life. After a long-distance session, that actually took place while I was asleep, I woke up and had no pain in my ankles or anywhere else, for that matter. And, I was able to enjoy working outdoors all morning with my brother--all without a lick of pain. This really works." -- CF, Mechanic, Lexington, MO

    "I had a constant buzzing and ringing in my right ear that was driving me crazy. I always had to have a TV or radio on during the day and sleep with a fan on to mask the constant internal noise. I tried supplements that didn’t help and then visited an ENT physician and they really had no solution. Well, apparently our sessions have definitely had an impact. The buzzing has completely subsided and I only occasionally hear any ringing. This is such an amazing relief that it’s hard to express. Thanks again for your continued help and support, I couldn’t recommend the sessions highly enough. -- Best Regards, Tom R, Chicago

    (Thomas): During the group session, it became clear to me that there was some deep distress in Ken’s knees where I noticed the brilliant blue spectrums beginning to appear. During the session Ken said that he had briefly felt the pain in his knees intensify and then suddenly it was as if all the pain and discomfort he had been having just poured out through the bottom of his feet. That was it -- the pain was gone and never came back.

    "The self-treatments have helped me in healing some physical issues and I'm sleeping better than ever. I've also been trained by Thomas to use the Healing Spectrums in my work as a counselor and I seem to be able to 'tune in' more quickly to the core issues of my clients. This is really valuable to both me and my clients." -- Cheryl Bailey, Counselor, IA
