Now on to the wrap up of Night 3 with Dr. Keith Scott-Mumby and Nicolas Ortner…

1. Will supplements interfere with chemotherapy?

I’m sure you’ve heard someone say that you can’t take supplements with chemotherapy before. In fact, my mother was sharing a story about a friend who recently was told this same thing from an oncologist.

Dr. Keith provides some interesting evidence that may prove this is false…

You know, it’s supposed to be that if you take supplements, that will mean the chemo doesn’t work, and you’re going to die. And this is the kind of nonsense the oncologists like to put around. And you might even hear, or your listeners, if they’re facing this problem, might be quoted a paper that was published around 2005, where some scientists had studied the effects of certain antioxidants and shown that it seemed to, you know, counter good effects of chemo—or what they considered the good effects—particularly vitamin E and selenium and beta-carotene and so on. Well, that’s all… and this is all you hear quoted, of course. All the other good ones that say it helps, you never hear quoted. But you know, even the authors of that study later broadcast a retraction. In 2008, they reworked their figures. This was a German… I’m sorry, a Canadian team. I can’t remember her name. Anyway, it was a Canadian team that published the original paper. The figures weren’t damning, you know. It just showed a slight tendency to counter the effect of chemo, which worried them. But she and a team reworked the figures and republished in 2008, saying, “We got this all wrong. It’s not true. That only applies to a very small percentage of the population that was enough to skew the figures,” and that was people with lung cancer who refused to stop smoking.

I dug around and couldn’t find the study mentioned. I’ll talk to Dr. Keith to see if he can dig deeper for me.

Here’s something that may be close to what he’s referencing. I didn’t find a retraction for this, by the way.

Regardless, please share this. It’s important for your friends, family members and oncologists to know.

2. Take note, cancer is rare?

Fascinating quote by Dr. Keith here…

I found an interesting historical document from Victorian times about a lecture given in London back in the 19th century where a doctor said, ‘You know, here’s a case of cancer. You’ve got to see this. This is pretty rare. You may not see too many cancer cases in your working career.’

Everyone is trying to identify the cause of cancer, but if it’s multifaceted, they’ll never be able to pinpoint it.

What’s interesting is that most of the theories revolve around things that are unnatural to human life…

  • Formula feeding
  • EMFs
  • Pesticides
  • GMO foods
  • Chemical pollution
  • Rare metal contamination
  • High stress
  • Vaccines
  • Pharmaceutical drugs
  • High doses of radiation

You, of course, won’t be able to avoid all of these, but cutting back will likely decrease your chances of cancer.

3. Draw the card, change your diet.

Dr. Keith says the most important, immediate thing to do if you want to prevent cancer or if you have it is to change your diet.

If you draw that card and find you got a cancer, the first thing you got to do that afternoon is start thinking about diet and start making changes.

Doing so will allow your body to start getting the nutrients it needs, stop it from dealing with foreign substances and right your emotional-hormonal balance.

All important for a healthy lifestyle.

4. Quote of the night…

Cancer is a career change. It’s like a new career where you’re new job is cancer.

What a great way to put it.

I’ve heard people say that cancer was their wake up call — their message from above that told them slow down, make a change, do something different.

For me, I want to be able to make those changes, slow down and always adapt before I get cancer.

That seems like a much easier approach in theory though, than in practice.

5. Stat alert!

Dr. Keith provides this shocking statistic of the amount of chemicals that are absorbed through the skin — many of the carcinogenic…

I’ve got a shocking statistic for you, Kevin, and your listeners, which is that most women, on average anyway, women will absorb two pounds of chemicals through their skin in a year. That’s one kilo. Two pounds of chemicals per year go through the skin, end up in the liver, your kidneys.

Yikes, here’s another link to back this up — and one up it — apparently it’s more like 5 pounds!

This significantly could affect your health, particularly if you’re using unnatural soaps, shampoos and make up.

Shameless self promo: If you want to try a skin care line that is cootie and chemical free (and extremely effective), you can get a sample kit of Annmarie’s line here.

6. Kev’s blooper…

Everyone loves bloopers, so here’s one with Nick and I…

Kevin: So why don’t you start off with just telling us who you are, how you got into what you do—which is EFT and Tapping—and then we’ll move into some of the more important questions.

Nick: Yeah, that sounds good. Yeah, my bio is unimportant. It’s true. Well, I’ll go through it quickly, because it isn’t important.

LOL! Nick has been a friend since 2nd grade. He was in my wedding and I was in his. Hopefully, we can move past this little slip up. 🙂

7. How does EFT or tapping work?

EFT / Tapping is a method where you physically tap on meridian points on the face and body to clear trauma, emotional and physical pain, and limiting belief systems.

It’s weird, but it works.

I asked Nick if there was any science behind why it works. Here’s what he said…

But there’s some preliminary research, and that research—basically, what it’s saying is that when we do the tapping on these end points of meridians, we’re actually sending a calming signal to the amygdala in the brain.

A calm brain = a smooth functioning body.

8. If it works on back pain, it could work with cancer pain.

Nick explains a tapping session with a client where he needed to go deeper than the pain…

You know, I remember distinctly working with a client and she came to me with sciatica, you know, really bad back pain, sciatica pain. And we did a bunch of tapping just on the pain itself, and we weren’t getting anywhere. And we tapped on the original event and when it happened, and we’re just looking and exploring. We weren’t getting anywhere, and I was getting a little nervous because this is actually someone that was looking to promote the tapping themselves, and it would have been a good relationship. I wanted to give them a great experience. So we kept digging and digging, and I said, “Well what’s bothering you most in your life right now?” And she said, “Oh, the stress at work. It’s just over the top. I can’t take it.” So we focused on that emotional issue, just jumping to another conversation. That emotional issue. The next thing you know, the pain in her back was gone.

With each of our experts confirming that there is an emotional link to cancer, I would love to see more cancer patients tapping to break free from some of the trauma, fear and anger associated with their disease.

The good news is that this is a relatively harmless addition to treatment that costs nothing.

(I say relatively, since using EFT or tapping on some extremely deep trauma may require the skill of a practitioner.)

9. What a great use for tapping…

Tapping or EFT is great for anxiety, but since I’ve never had cancer, I had no idea this existed…

During the [cancer] event at Omega, we ran through the gamut of tapping on the diagnosis, tapping on the fear of coming back. We tapped a lot of scan anxiety or, and say, the lingo, I guess, is “Scanxiety.” They turn into one word. Well, scan anxiety, which I wasn’t familiar with, is you have the diagnosis and six months later, a month later you know, whatever it is, it’s the scan that you have to go get to see where it’s at. And this is a fear for people how have cancer who want to see, “Has it grown? Has it shrunk? Has it moved? Has it spread?” And for people who no longer have cancer, “Has it come back?”

I can relate on a different level with this. When I was having my adrenal issues, I would get anxious when it was time to run my blood tests again. I would stress out waiting for the results. I wanted to get better. I thought the tests would confirm that, but you never know.

Hopefully, I’ll not have to worry about disease, but if I do, I’ll tap all the way to the lab (and until I get the results — and likely after too.)

That’s it for Night #3!

Kevin Gianni is a health author, activist and blogger. He started seriously researching personal and preventative natural health therapies in 2002 when he was struck with the reality that cancer ran deep in his family and if he didn’t change the way he was living — he might go down that same path. Since then, he’s written and edited 6 books on the subject of natural health, diet and fitness. During this time, he’s constantly been humbled by what experts claim they know and what actually is true. This has led him to experiment with many diets and protocols — including vegan, raw food, fasting, medical treatments and more — to find out what is myth and what really works in the real world.

Kevin has also traveled around the world searching for the best protocols, foods, medicines and clinics around and bringing them to the readers of his blog RenegadeHealth.com — which is one of the most widely read natural health blogs in the world with hundreds of thousands of visitors a month from over 150 countries around the world.

    As I was listening to the explanation and then the demonstration of tapping, I got to thinking….couldn’t prayer do the same thing? I’m a Christian and the bible teaches us to “pray without ceasing”. To me that means to be in constant communication with God….or at least keep the lines of communication open. It also teaches us to “not worry about anything, instead pray about everything”.

    Then I got to thinking that maybe the two could be combined. We could tap as we pray, instead of the self-talk.

    Any comments?

    • John says:

      There could be some real synergy here. Or the tapping, if done beforehand, could open us to a deeper, more relaxed, and better focused prayer experience. Why not?

    Please ask Howard Straus about the comment on the Gerson Institute website (http://gerson.org/gerpress/faqs-general/) that says: “What conditions do not respond well to the Gerson Therapy?

    There are certain types of cancer that do not respond well or do not respond at all. These include acute leukemia, pancreatic cancer after treatment with chemotherapy, and brain cancers other than an early stage astrocytoma. We have little or no experience with uncommon conditions of a congenital or genetic origin and would not expect the Therapy to reverse these conditions although overall health may be enhanced. Parkinson’s disease, especially after the use of dopamine drugs, does not respond well to the therapy. Neither does ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease).

    The Gerson Therapy should not be administered to organ or stem cell transplant recipients or people on kidney dialysis”

    I would especially like to know if they found what does work with acute leukemia. Is there a connection with protein and/or certain amino acids and acute leukemias?

    Thank you ever so much.

  3. Hi Kevin! Just wanted to say to you a BIG THANK YOU!! for hosting this wonderful series of interviews. They are powerful.

Best Wishes to You and Annemarie! Catherine McGeachy

  4. Enterade – R is a medical food for rehydration when you are undergoing radiotherapy or chemotherapy. Enterade – R was developed based on cutting edge science from the Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of Florida. The key findings that were utilized to develop this product are:

    Your normal rehydration process based on glucose mediated sodium absorption is compromised during radiotherapy and chemotherapy. If a glucose containing drink is used for rehydration during radiotherapy or chemotherapy, there will very little absorption of sodium and other electrolytes. This will leave you dehydrated. In addition, because the glucose from the drink is not absorbed, it stays in your intestine and causes osmotic diarrhea. This will exacerbate the vomiting, diarrhea and dehydration that you may already be experiencing as the side effect of radiotherapy or chemotherapy.

    Our scientists discovered alternate pathways for rehydration that kick in when the normal glucose mediated sodium absorption starts failing. These alternate pathways are driven by specific amino acids. Enterade – R is a mixture of these specific amino acids in the required concentrations along with electrolytes to rehydrate you when your glucose mediated rehydration process is failing due to radiotherapy or chemotherapy.

    The recommended dose of Enterade – R is 2 bottles (8 fl oz each) a day during the course of radiotherapy or chemotherapy. Please ask your healthcare professional if you are planning to use this product.

    Please visit http://www.enterade.com or call 1-855-ENTERADE for more information.

    The above statements about Enterade – R have not been evaluated by the FDA. Enterade – R is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.

    • JT says:

      Wow. The wisdom you gave would be invaluable to someone in cancer therapy. Thank you for taking the time to give this insight. I am sure that you have saved someone the horrible side effects of dehydration(osmotic diarrhea) through your comment. Cancer treatment is horrible enough, and the side effects are hard on the whole family, not just the cancer patient. Thanks for your thoughtfulness in sharing.
