A Breakthrough Therapy that Gets to the Heart of Cancer
Posted May 28 2009 12:17am
Before THB launched its paid newsletter, The Healing Prescription last year, we had several opportunities to meet with Jim LaValle, the Executive Editor, and learn more about his alternative health institute and the approach he takes to treat people that mainstream medical practitioners often cannot help.
While Jim had countless examples of how his integrative approach gave a new lease on life to people that had struggled for years with traditional treatments, one story was especially memorable.
Several years ago, a 10-year-old boy named Ryan came to Jim’s institute for treatment. He had recurring bone cancer that had spread to his lungs. Ryan’s doctor had basically given up on him, telling his parents he had less than a year to live. Jim immediately began alternative treatments that included nutritional support and detoxification supplements. The treatment saved Ryan’s life and he is now a healthy teenager whose lung tumors disappeared and never returned.
I recently found out while editing The Healing Prescription about the key nutrient that was able to put Ryan’s lung tumors into remission. It’s called Avemar (Avé in the US) and was developed by Hungarian scientist, Dr. Albert Szent-Györgyi , winner of the 1937 Nobel Prize in Medicine for discovering the essential role of vitamin C in cellular metabolism. 1
As Jim explains in this issue, glucose (sugar) fuels the growth of cancer cells —a fact that is often ignored in mainstream medicine. But the damaging effects don’t stop there. The cancer cells then convert the glucose into lactate which causes acidic stress in the body and rob normal cells of the glucose they need for healthy metabolism.
This is where Avé comes to the rescue. It effectively decreases glucose uptake by cancer cells and helps glucose metabolism return to normal. In the process, cancer cells begin to die, tumor growth slows, and healthy cells can begin to better absorb glucose and other nutrients. Because healthy cells can get more of the nourishment they need, weight loss and muscle wasting, common side effects in cancer patients, begin to slow or even reverse.
You may be surprised to learn that Avé is not a high-tech designer neutraceutical. It’s a patented wheat germ that is specially fermented to provide a unique set of active compounds with immune-stimulating and cancer-fighting properties. There are numerous human studies that show Avé is beneficial in the treatment of a variety of cancers. 2 Jim LaValle has seen these results first-hand in children being treated with Avé in Hungary.
So impressed has Jim been with Avé, that he says:
If I had a family member who had cancer, one of the first products I would get them on is Avemar. And since Avemar has immune balancing and anti-inflammatory products, it may be a product that would make sense to include for a cancer prevention product.
While Avé may provide life-saving results in the battle against cancer, it is important to note that it should be used as part of a comprehensive cancer-fighting protocol that also includes eliminating the dietary sugars and starches that feed cancer.
Avé can also be used in conjunction with traditional cancer treatments including surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, and immunotherapy. 3
If you or a loved one is facing a cancer crisis now, I urge you to find out more about this remarkable natural product.
