Combination Liposomal Vitamin C, Resveratrol and Curcumin

Standard

Copy of Combination Liposomal

Combination Liposomal for cancer contains Vitamin C, Resveratrol and Curcumin. Pdazzler’s latest homemade Liposomal may be a potent cancer fighter when added to your current anti-cancer regimen or protocol. And you can make this powerful combination Liposomal in your own kitchen.

I have used homemade Liposomal Vitamin C as an alternative cancer treatment and as a cancer preventative for over a year.

Vitamin C (like Curcumin and Resveratrol) is very difficult for the body to absorb when taken orally. This is particularly true when Vitamin C is taken in large oral doses. Until the advent of Liposomal Vitamin C the only efficient method of getting therapeutic levels of Vitamin C into the blood stream was intravenously. This required administration and attendance by a physician or nurse practitioner.

Current studies indicate cancer patients can get more bang for the buck from properly prepared oral Liposomal Vitamin C than is available from the intravenous variety.

Industry is now producing Liposomal carriers for any number of supplements. Two of the more recent and effective are Liposomal Curcumin and Liposomal Resveratrol. One supplement manufacturer has created a combination liposomal with 5 active ingredients.

Curcumin has also been an active part of my personal anti-cancer protocol for several years. Curcumin is extremely difficult to absorb. Any number of additive ingredients have been tried to assist the body in absorption of Curcumin, the most popular or which is piperine (pepper).

Unfortunately, even with piperine only a small percentage of Curcumin reaches the bloodstream. Substantial doses of Curcumin (many grams daily) are necessary to get therapeutic levels into the blood and piperine (pepper) often upsets the stomach. Numbers of users, myself included, incorporated Curcumin into their Budwig mixes on the theory flax oil contained in Budwig assisted the fat soluble Curcumin in being absorbed. This is a great idea but no-one ever proved in studies the practice was paying real dividends. It is doubtful therapeutic doses of Curcumin reach the blood (with this method) unless you are taking high doses of several grams daily.

Scientific studies show placing Curcumin in Liposomal nano-bubbles is 9 to 10 times as effective getting the Curcumin to the blood stream as piperine. This means a therapeutic application that requires 10 to 15 grams of oral Curcumin can now be accomplished with 1 – 2 tablespoons of Liposomal Curcumin. (Prostate Cancer Study.)

The new hot button anti-cancer supplement is Trans-Resveratrol. A few minutes Googling on the Internet will bring back any number of citations for dozens of medical studies on the efficacy of Trans-Resveratrol and a significant number of them involve cancer. (Skin Cancer Study.) Trans-Resveratrol, like Curcumin causes apoptosis (cancer cell death), is fat soluble and extremely difficult to absorb. Studies show Liposomal Resveratrol reaching the blood stream at 10 to 20 times the levels of regular oral administration.

Note: Resveratrol is very reactive to open air and will oxidize quickly. Product stability is critical to overall product effectiveness. This requires special packaging steps and special care must be taken in order to maintain a high level of potency. Store any unused Trans-Resveratrol in airtight container. It is suggested you purchase in smaller sealed units or evacuate the air between uses to preserve potency.

This is the point where you are tasked to do your own research on the value of Resveratrol, Curcumin and Vitamin C in treating or preventing cancer in your personal case. What follows is my recipe for preparing combination homemade Liposomal containing three super-star supplements, Vitamin C, Resveratrol and Curcumin. It is recommended you read and produce “Homemade Liposomal Vitamin C” first, prior to attempting my new homemade liposomal combination. The process is similar although water soluble Vitamin C is much easier to place into an efficient liposomal. As you work with the combination you learn it involves more “art” than “science”. Patience is an added virtue.

Using a small (2 cup) Ultrasonic cleaner, (Item #03305, obtainable from Harbor Freight @ about $30.00), we performed the following:

  1. Using a glass or stainless steel sauce pan warm 1 ½ cups of distilled water to 45 degrees Celsius (113 degrees Fahrenheit).
  2. In two 12 oz. or larger sealable jars place ½ cup (4 oz.) of the warmed distilled water in each.
  3. Add 3 tablespoons of non-GMO soy lecithin (NOW brand works well) to each jar. Seal jars and agitate each vigorously for 3 – 5 minutes. Set jars aside allowing the lecithin granules to soak up distilled water.
  4. After soaking for two or more hours shake/agitate each jar vigorously until smooth creamy lecithin solutions in each jar with no visible lecithin granules.
  5. Place 10 grams Curcumin (3 1/3 level teaspoons) in one jar of lecithin solution, close jar tightly and agitate/shake aggressively for 3 – 5 minutes until Curcumin is in solution.
  6. Place 3 grams Resveratrol (3 level teaspoons) in the 2nd jar of lecithin solution, close jar and agitate/shake aggressively for 3 – 5 minutes until Trans-Resveratrol is in solution.
  7. Pour contents of both jars together into ultra-sonic cleaner and turn the unit on. Stir with straw through the first cycle. (Approximately 2 – 3 minutes.)
  8. Start next ultrasonic cycle. When ultrasonic unit stops start again. Continue running cycles and stir occasionally while accomplishing the following.
  9. Wash your sealable jars. Place two oz. of warm distilled water in each jar.
  10. Add 1 Tablespoon prescription Vitamin C powder to 1st jar, seal and shake/agitate vigorously until Vitamin C is dissolved.
  11. Dissolve 1 Heaping Tablespoon of Bob’s Red Mill Bicarbonate of Soda (Bob’s is Aluminum free) in 2nd jar, seal and shake / agitate vigorously until baking soda is dissolved.
  12. **What follows is often the most difficult part of the process for those new to making homemade liposomals. While stirring the Vitamin C / distilled water solution very slowly pour/dribble the dissolved bicarbonate of soda/water mixture into the Vitamin C / distilled water solution. (Pour soda solution slowly as the resulting mixture will bubble. By pouring slowing and constantly stirring Vitamin C solution you will be able to mix the two without bubbling over.)
  13. At the conclusion of mixing the bicarbonate of soda mixture into the Vitamin C mixture bubbling will cease. Pour the resulting total Vitamin C / Bicarbonate of Soda mix together into what was the Bicarbonate of Soda jar and swirl to dissolve any soda that may have settled out.
  14. Pour the resulting Vitamin C / Bicarbonate of Soda mixture in ultrasonic unit with the Lecithin, Resveratrol, Curcumin mix.
  15. Operate the ultrasonic cleaner for 4 additional cycles or 10 minutes.
  16. Measure the pH of the resulting Liposomal combination. You are seeking a pH 7.25 – 7.50. . * Both Vitamin C and Resveratrol are acidic. If needed add very small amounts of addition soda to buffer resulting Liposomal to neutral.

Bottle and refrigerate the resulting combination Liposomal.

Start with just one or two tablespoons daily and increase dosage slowly, listening carefully to your body as your progress.

Each Tablespoon of this Liposomal Combination results in:

500 mg Vitamin C. Assuming 10 x efficacy the equivalent of 5 grams oral.
415 mg Curcumin. Assuming 10 x efficacy the equivalent of 4 grams oral.
125 mg Resveratrol. Assuming 20 x efficacy the equivalent of 2 1/2 grams oral.

All ingredients are noted for apoptosis (cancer killing) so approach the use with significant caution and common sense. Large doses could cause a severe herxhiemer reaction overwhelming your body’s ability to remove the resulting cancer die off.

The combination is more effective if blood levels are kept near constant. So dividing doses over time is a valid strategy. Example: a tablespoon morning and evening as opposed to two tablespoons just in morning. Or, a teaspoon every hour for 12 hours as opposed to 4 tablespoons every three hours. – Pdazzler

Graced by Healing

Standard

One of my favourite books has to be Ian Gawler’s biography “the Dragons Blessing”. In it he says scathingly of so called ‘spontaneous remission’  that there was nothing spontaneous about it! He worked bloody hard at it! Here’s a story for him to add to “REMARKABLE RECOVERIES”Surviving cancer against the odds. What are the chances? How is it done? Public address given by Dr Ian Gawler OAM at the launching of the book Surviving Cancer by Professor Chris O’Brien May 2008 http://iangawler.com/info/articles/Remarkable%20Recoveries.pdf

If you are not familiar with his story Ian was a vet who collected on his life insurance as he was at the end of conventional western therapies including having his leg amputated for osteosarcoma. Using this money he embarked on a world journey investigating meditation and other techniques that led to his ultimately healing from this – he was a trail blazer. Decades later Natascha who is english and had bone and brain mets from primary breast cancer by 2012, is  in a lucky position to be very well supported in her “personal journey with cancer” doctors, nurses and family and friends, even though she had refused conventional treatment at diagnosis in 2009 – and journey it was including shamans in the amazonian rainforest – ultimately being graced with remission at home with her mind and the help of her osteopath.

Recorded in November at https://forestrowlocal.co.uk/community-event/a-personal-journey-with-cancer/ and first came to my attention via bisforbananascisforcancer.wordpress.com/2017/01/02/happy-2017-and-a-video-natasha-laing-from-stage-4-breast-cancer-to-remission/#more-4908

Enjoy – this is a joyous presentation throughout. It’s not just an approach to cancer – it’s about an approach to life!

A quick google shows the research into ‘spontaneous regression of cancer’ is gaining momentum exponentially with our increased understanding of immunity and the brain-body feedback loops, signaling molecules and the importance of the cells environment – the matrix. I was lucky enough some years ago to hear Mina Bissell lecture on stemcells in person. She too knows that cancer is not about ‘fighting for peace’ and killing a bunch of civilians you were trying to save in the process. Respect Thy Neighbor: Why We Will Not Cure Cancer by Treating Only the Cancer Cells https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_-FLuMKNBSA and if that’s too complex try the short peppy TED talk version https://www.ted.com/talks/mina_bissell_experiments_that_point_to_a_new_understanding_of_cancer 

Curing peanut allergy

Standard

A melbourne outfit led by Mimi Tang recently cured some kiddies of their peanut allergy combining a probiotic and a kind of homeopathic therapy – escalating doses of peanut allergen ( in homeopathy the sicker you are the LOWER the dose ) It is a double blind study, the kids are  photogenic so everyone is happy, especially Prof Tang (who is crowing about being the first to do this though I she isn’t. US and UK doctors have done it before without the probiotics – http://homeopathyplus.com.au/peanut.html )

Abstract of the research ( done with Murdoch money ) : http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25592987?log$=activity and an earlier review of the topic by Mimi Tang here: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3448073/

So being nut allergic and having an allergic kid I immediately went hunting and fortunately the probiotic is common – Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG. It’s in vaalia yoghurt. Plan – do the math and then go buy a straight probiotic dose of L actobacillus GG from Ethical Nutrients ( who can label it as helpful for eczema) – “100 grams of Vaalia Yoghurt contains a minimum of 100,000,000 colony forming units of Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG or LGG®. ” “Vaalia Innergy for immunity contains 10 times the amount of Lactobacillus GG compared to Vaalia probiotic yoghurt.” http://www.vaalia.com.au/products/product-faqs/

Yoghurt is interesting – it will often make allergies WORSE because it’s a high histamine food ( all fermentations produce histamine ). Certainly I personally found eating kefir was a problem. I was most dismayed to find my allergies worsening because I loooved the stuff although it wasn’t until I read the Low Histamine chef’s articles and found out a large fresh juice ( its the oranges) and leftover prawn pizza = instant sneezing that the penny dropped. Certain strains of lactobacillus make histamine – others don’t. A common one L. casei is a culprit. The Bulletproof Executive has a fully referenced write up of the topic www.bulletproofexec.com/why-yogurt-and-probiotics-make-you-fat-and-foggy/

Histamine Intolerance and Which Bacteria to Avoid

Disturbance in gut biome also plays a significant role in creating the recent rise in histamine intolerance. Histamine intolerance is the result of an imbalance between the breakdown of histamine and its buildup in the gut. This is generally caused by a deficiency in the DAO enzymes (found in intestinal mucosa) that helps metabolize and breakdown dietary sources of histamine.

A histamine overload leads to increased inflammation and many other symptoms including: skin irritation, hives, throat tightening, increased heart rate, nasal congestion, migraines, fatigue, heartburn, reflux, and weight gain.4 Unlike other food allergies and sensitivities, the response from histamine intolerance is cumulative and not always immediate, so it is harder to pin point right away.

Another excellent review is ” Helpful Bacteria – Should you take probiotics” by David Schardt, Centre for Science in the Public Interest ( US based http://www.cspinet.org/new/pdf/nah_probiotics.pdf ).

Should You take Probiotics?

Caveat: – an intact mucosal barrier of the skin both outside and inside is likely needed as it is part of the initiating problem. I will have to ask if kids with eczema were screened out of the peanut trial.

“Animal experiments have confirmed that repeated topical contact with allergens through skin whose barrier function is disrupted could promote allergic sensitization and airway hypersensitivity and prevent oral tolerance induction (6–13)” In fact the peanut patch is another way of inducing immune tolerance ( i guess it’s bit like those expensive injections )

Reccomendations from scientific experts these days are changed more often than I repaint the house. Time magazine reports experts are now backpedalling on avoiding nuts to prevent later allergies “Based on recent findings, the AAP in 2008 changed its advice and now does not say parents should avoid feeding their babies peanuts.” http://time.com/3719341/peanut-allergy-cure-treatment/

and whyeee is modern medicine putting the boot into homeopathy when the underlying tenet ‘like cures like’ in teensy doses obviously works wonders applied to the immune system? There has been a recent escalation of  attempts to discredit this therapy and ban it in the UK, USA and Australia. I am sure they will just have to backpedal on that too as the scientific (versus the much older observational and intuitive) understanding of the immune system increases. Current state of play in Australia here: NHMRC Statement on Homeopathy and NHMRC Information Paper – Evidence on the effectiveness of homeopathy for treating health conditions – https://www.nhmrc.gov.au/health-topics/complementary-medicines/homeopathy-review

Frackman the movie

Standard

The main reason I have no time to organise Astrotas meetings is I am renovating an old house. It’s lovely but if he knew then what we know now do you think Gramps would have used lead paint and asbestos?

Dayne Pratsky will be available for q&a at the Tasmanian screenings of his movie on fracking in australia. For session times and venues ( burnie, devonport,hobart ) please see the what’s on page or http://frackmanthemovie.com/screenings?r=#more

Fracking suffers from being a newish process where everyone seems to be “making it up as they go along” – to quote Jolynn Minnar, director of “Unearthedhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IPIEzSwPwT0

Considering the mess and colateral damage oil wells, coal and gold mines, not to mention nuclear power companies manage to make with the existing technologies, I conclude a coal seam gas well disaster is merely a matter of time and Murphy’s Law.  To quote the detractors of the movie –

..actual well integrity failures are very rare. Well integrity failure is where all barriers fail and a leak is possible. True well integrity failures are two to three orders of magnitude lower than single barrier failure rates – http://www.energyresourceinformationcentre.org.au/conversation/frackman-facts/#myth

ie: leaks are very rare but NOT ZERO. So certain are we that Murphy’s law applies to petroleum companies, Tasmania has The Penguin Jumpers Project Over 15,000 Penguin sized little woolies stored in Oil Spill Response Kits. In the case of a major oil spill, these jumpers will be used to help rehabilitate Little penguins (Eudyptula minor) that have been oil affected.

The only real question is do we want another method of fecking up the environment to add to those we already have?

Lightning Bolts within Cells

Standard

A. “Cellular Circuit: A cell can be thought of as a circuit made up of capacitors and resistors. Its membrane and those of its organelles, such as the nucleus, act like capacitors. The briny liquid encased within the membranes, the cytosol and nucleoplasm, is conductive and so can be modeled as resistors.” http://www.biotele.com/bioelectric.htm Illustration: Bryan Christie Design

Lurking deep inside an ordinary cell are electric fields strong enough to cause a bolt of lightning. “The existence of strong electric fields across cellular membranes is accepted as a basic fact of cell biology. Maintaining gradients of charged molecules and ions allows for many cellular functions, from control over cell volume to the electrical discharges of nerve and muscle cells. The fact that cells have internal electric fields, however, is surprising. Kopelman presented his results at the annual meeting of the American Society for Cell Biology. “There has been no skepticism as to the measurements,” says Kopelman. “But we don’t have an interpretation.” http://www.technologyreview.com/news/409171/lightning-bolts-within-cells/

The electric universe theory isn’t surprised that it doesn’t stop on the outside of a cell at all since the wiring runs continously through the beautiful living matrix model.

B. the Living Matrix model of the body and cell – James Oschmann

I felt quite underawed by this year’s Nobel Prize for medicine – ‘place cells‘. Part of the disapointment stems from this looking retro and pedestrian after recent findings in neuroplastic research. Important no doubt but not electrifying news, not a patch on reading Energy Medicine, The Scientific Basis James L. Oschman, 2000

Modern neurophysiology focuses primarily on the activity of less than half of the cells in the brain (Becker 1990a, 1991). The ‘neuron doctrine’ holds that all functions of the nervous system are the result of activities of the neurons. Integration of brain function is therefore regarded as arising from the massive interconnectivity of the neurons. This view is incomplete because it ignores an evolutionarily more ancient informational system residing in the perineural connective tissue cells that constitute more than half of the cells in the brain. Perineural cells encase every nerve fiber, down to their finest terminations throughout the body. The perineural system is a direct current communication system  reaching to every innervated tissue. The perineural system  establishes a ‘current of injury’ that controls injury repair. Historically, the injury potential was discovered before the discovery of resting and action potentials of nerves (Davson 1970). The current of injury is generated at the site of a wound, and continues until repair is complete. James L. Oschman

A number of biologists have concluded that the frequency overlap of Schumann resonances and biological fields is not accidental, but is the culmination of a close interplay between geomagnetic and biomagnetic fields over evolutionary time James L. Oschman

As mentioned in an earlier post I came to hear of Wallace Thornhill’s Electric Universe theory via the bio-electric side of things. I footled off to see David ‘eating for beauty’ Wolfe on a rawfood/permaculture retreat in Byron Bay. Like good hippies we were supposed to walk around Leilani’s garden barefoot, ‘earthing’. I had visions of hookworm and ant bites so was a little slow to warm to the idea ( despite a grounding hug from David! ) but in the end I came around to it. Longtime members may have seen little ads for Earthing products on the astro website – we are connected to the cosmic grid! The catalyst was hearing James Oschmann lecture on the body being a liquid crystal electric circuit.
