Boost Your Immune System

Boost your Immune System

 

A strong immune system is essential to recovery from cancer. As the late Burton Goldberg (Cancer Coach and Author) wrote:
“When your immune system is functioning properly it can stop cancer in its tracks by identifying and eliminating cancer cells before they can spread and form tumors. Everybody develops cancer cells each and every day, but in healthy people they are eliminated by the immune system the way nature intended. The primary “soldiers” that comprise your immune system are natural killer cells, macrophages and cancer cell-killing T cells, all of which are actively involved in targeting and eliminating cancer cells.

Should cancer strike, these same immune system components can mount an effective attack against tumors and any cancer cells that have spread from the original or primary tumor, especially in the early stages of cancer. That’s why ensuring proper immune function is so essential if cancer is to effectively be treated and reversed.”

Here are some Immune Suppressants and Immune Boosters

Immune Suppressants
Smoking down-grades the immune system.
Drinking too much alcohol depresses the immune system.
Storing cleaning products and other chemicals in your home can cause cancer.
Trans fats and glucose in your diet damages your immune system and can lead to cancer.

Immune Boosters
Have uninterrupted sleep in a darkened, EMF-free room (no computer, Wi-Fi, ‘phone etc).
People who laugh a lot have stronger immune systems.
People who have good sex lives have stronger immune systems.
People who meditate have stronger immune systems.
Exercise greatly improves the immune system. It improves survival rates of some cancer patients by 50 per cent.
Eat a high fibre, high bioactive foods diet, including: Porridge, Beans & Pulses, Fruit and veg
Take Probiotics: sources include sauerkraut, yogurt, kefir, kimchi, tempeh, miso, natto and kombucha.
Drink one teaspoon of Sodium Bicarbonate in warm water daily.
Immune Boosting Essential Oils include: Tea tree oil, Frankincense (C02 extract), Eucalyptus Globulus
Take Epsom Salts once a month clean out your liver – crucial to your immune system.

AHCC (Active hexose correlated compound) (Immune Booster)
This mushroom extract has an ability to be helpful in supporting the body’s two basic types of immunity: innate and adaptive. This study says the available literature clearly suggests that AHCC is an immune-modulating compound, with consistent effects on NK cell activity when induced by either the presence of an active tumor or a viral infection.

Aloe Vera (Immune Booster)
In oncology, it is mostly advocated as a topical treatment to prevent or treat skin irritation after radiotherapy. Studies suggest it may help to boost the immune system.
The percentage of tumor regressions and disease control was significantly higher in patients concomitantly treated with Aloe than with chemotherapy alone, as well as the percent of 3-year survival patients.

Beta Glucans (Immune Booster)
Beta glucans are sugars that are found in the cell walls of bacteria, fungi, yeasts, algae, lichens, and plants, such as oats and barley. Beta glucans are also used to boost the immune system.

This study  says the effects of b-glucans are beneficial in chemo and radiotherapy induced immune suppression and depleted hematopiesis. bGlucan shows anticarcinogenic activity, prevent oncogenesis and prevent metastasis.

Cesium Chloride (Immune Booster)
This study found Cesium Chloride (in addition to some vitamins, minerals, chelating agents and salts of selenium, potassium and magnesium, as well as a special diet) Improves Immune System by making cancer cells highly alkaline,  thus killing the cancer cell. Cesium chloride not only kills cancer cells, but it immediately stops the metastasis of the cancer, can shrink tumor masses within weeks, and almost always stops the pain of cancer within 12 to 36 hours.

Coenzyme Q10 (Immune Booster)
Studies suggest that CoQ10 may help the immune system work better. Partly because of this, CoQ10 is used as adjuvant therapy for cancer. Adjuvant therapy is treatment given following the primary treatment to lower the risk that the cancer will come back. It also seems to activate macrophages, the seek-and-destroy cells of the immune system.

Curcumin (Immune Booster)
Curcumin has been shown in the last two decades to be a potent immunomodulatory agent that can modulate the activation of T cells, B cells, macrophages, neutrophils, natural killer cells, and dendritic cells (study)

Essiac Tea
Laboratory analysis of Essiac shows that it has significant antioxidant and immunomodulatory properties. Essiac tea has shown the ability to strengthen the immune system.

Fucoidan

Japanese researchers at the Biomedical Research Laboratories have found that Fucoidan caused leukaemia, lymphoma, colorectal and stomach cancer cells to self-destruct. Fucoidan has also been found to have significant immune-boosting effects.

GcMAF (Immune Booster)
GcMAF is a is a human protein. It acts as a “director” of your immune system. But viruses and malignant cells like cancer send out an enzyme called Nagalase that prevents production of your GcMAF: that neutralises your immune system. So diseases become chronic, and cancer cells grow unchecked.

Ginger Extract (Immune Booster)
Ginger, a cousin spice of super anti-cancer substance turmeric, is known for its ability to shrink tumors. Astoundingly, it is even more effective than many cancer drugs, which have been shown to be completely ineffective and actually accelerate the death of cancer patients.

Ginseng (Immune Booster)

As a well-known herbal immune stimulant, hundreds of studies have extensively reported the anti-cancer or chemopreventive effects of ginseng. The anti-cancer effects of ginseng are mainly through the improvements in cell-mediated immunity consisting of cytotoxic T cells
and NK cells, while other mechanisms such as oxidative stress, apoptosis, and angiogenesis are also involved, according to this study.

 

LifeOne (Immune Booster)
LifeOne is a new, state-of-the-art treatment, developed and produced in the USA, specially formulated and scientifically proven to boost the body’s natural immune system and directly attack cancerous cells.

Low Dose Naltrexone

Low dose naltrexone (LDN) has been promising as a complementary medication for patients with a broad range of medical disorders. Although not a proven cure, evidence from clinical trials supports LDN as being a valuable adjunct for disorders in which the immune system plays a centralized role. Additionally, clinical trials have proposed a unique mechanism(s) allowing LDN to affect tumors including non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) at the cellular level by augmenting the immune system. (study)

Maitake (Immune Booster)
Ongoing research with human cancer patients has shown that a specific portion of the maitake mushroom, called the ‘MD-fraction,’ can inhibit tumor growth. Maitake also enhance the activity of cells, thereby increasing the production of interleukins (immune cells) that are know to prevent cancer growth and can even improve the effects of chemotherapy.

MGN-3 (Immune Booster)
BIOBRAN MGN-3, a non-toxic glyconutritional food supplement (or functional food) made from breaking down rice bran with enzymes from the Shitake mushroom, has been clinically proven to help powerfully enhance depleted immune systems.

Milk Vetch (Astragalus) (Immune Booster)
Milk vetch (Astragalus mongholicus) is a medicinal herb that originates from traditional Chinese medicine. This study says it displayed its ability to control t-helper cells 1 and 2, essentially regulating the body’s immune responses.

Modified Citrus Pectin (Immune Booster)
A dietary supplement containing the modified citrus pectin (MCP) derived from the soluble fiber of citrus fruit peels and a galectin-3 inhibitor with…immunostimulatory,…and anti-metastatic activities.   Also, unsaturated…acids in MCP may stimulate the immune system through the activation of natural killer cells, cytotoxic T-cells, and B-cells.

Noni (Immune Booster)
Noni is an evergreen shrub or small tree that grows throughout the tropical regions of the Pacific Ocean, from Southeast Asia to Australia.. In laboratory research, noni has shown antioxidant, immune-stimulating, and tumor-fighting properties. Noni is found to inhibit the existence or growth of cancer cells by manipulating the immune system.

Papaya Leaf (Immune Booster)
Papaya leaf tea might prove effective as a cancer preventative and treatment, according to a study published in the “Journal of Ethnopharmacology.” In the tissue culture study, papaya leaf tea reduced inflammation and activated immune system toxic effects toward cancer cells, inhibited tumor cell growth and stimulated genes that modulate the immune system’s anti-tumor effects.

Reishi Mushrooms (Immune Booster)
Reishi mushroom contains chemicals that seem to have a variety of potentially beneficial effects, including activity against tumors (cancer) and beneficial effects on the immune system.

Revici Method

This nontoxic chemotherapy uses lipids, lipid-based substances, and essential elements to correct an underlying imbalance in the patient’s chemistry.

Lipids with anabolic or catabolic activity play an essential role in Dr. Revici’s unique therapy for their activity on the immune response to diseases.

Saw Palmetto (Immune Booster)
Enlarged prostate and prostate cancer is caused, not by testosterone, but by excessive DHT. This is where saw palmetto works and can make a big difference. A high quality saw palmetto can help you prevent prostate problems from developing in the first place.

Shiitake mushroom (Lentinus edodes) (Immune Booster)
According to the Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, shiitake mushrooms contain an active compound called lentinan (a form of beta-glucan) that stimulates the immune system, which in turn activates cells and proteins that can inhibit cancerous growths.

Soy (Immune Booster)
Soy disrupts an important signaling pathway that spurs tumor growth and malignancy during
colon cancer development. involving the Sfrp2, Sfrp5 and Wnt5a genes. At the same time, soy isoflavones can
also act as antioxidants in normal tissues, which protect them against unintended damage from radiotherapy.”

St Johns Wort (Immune Booster)
An herbal extract prepared from the plant Hypericum perforatum (St. John’s wort) with photodynamic, antineoplastic, and antidepressant activities. Hypericin, one of the active compounds found in Hypericum perforatum, is a photosensitizer that, when exposed to a particular wavelength and intensity of light, may induce tumor cell apoptosis. Another compound, hyperforin, induces caspase-dependent apoptosis in certain tumor cell lines.

Sun’s Soup-Selected Vegetables (Immune Booster)
“Selected Vegetables” and “ Sun’s Soup ” are different mixtures of vegetables and herbs that are being studied as treatments for people with cancer.

Tian Xian (Immune Booster)
Tian Xian is an extract of 14 Chinese medicinal herbs (ingredients may vary depending on manufacturers) and is used for cancer treatment in traditional medicine. In vitro studies demonstrated that Tian Xian has immunomodulating and anticancer effects.

Ultraviolet Blood Irridation (Immune Booster)
Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation (UBI) is a procedure that exposes the blood to light to heighten the body’s immune response and to kill infections. With exposure to UV light, bacteria and viruses in your bloodstream absorb five times as much photonic energy as do your red and white blood cells.

Vitamin D therapy (Immune Booster)
Vitamin D is essential to our bodies. It helps regulate the absorption of calcium and phosphorus in our bones, strengthens the immune system and helps cell communication. Cancer patients who have higher levels of vitamin D when they are diagnosed tend to have better survival rates and remain in remission longer than patients who are vitamin D-deficient according to a new study.

Wheat Grass (Immune Booster)
It appears that wheatgrass works by activating growth factors that have a powerful effect at the cell membrane. What results is a broad spectrum of physiological and biochemical effects that can boost your immune system, stimulate your bone marrow (blood production), and kill cancer cells (at least in laboratory studies). Taking wheatgrass can also reduce the side effects of chemotherapy.

Zeolite (Immune Booster)
Zeolites are natural volcanic minerals with an unique, complex crystalline structure. It’s honeycomb framework of cavities and channels (like cages) works at the cellular level trapping, heavy metals and toxins. In fact, because it is one of the few negatively charged minerals in nature, zeolites act as magnets drawing toxins to it, capturing them in its cage and removing them from the body.

Other Ways to Boost Your Immune System

Qigong (Immune Booster)
Qigong is an ancient Chinese health care system that integrates physical postures, breathing techniques and focused intention. The gentle, rhythmic movements of Qigong reduce stress, build stamina, increase vitality, and enhance the immune system. It has also been found to improve cardiovascular, respiratory, circulatory, lymphatic and digestive functions.

Coleys Toxins

Coleys Toxins is a cocktail of inactive bacteria used as nonspecific immunotherapy in the treatment of cancer. Recent research has produced a considerable body of scientific evidence documenting the immune system’s role in controlling cancer growth. For example, cancer occurs more frequently in individuals with weakened immune systems.

Mild Full Body Hyperthermia
Hyperthermia is the use of heat as a treatment for cancer.

This study noted: The use of hyperthermia as an adjunct to cancer immunotherapy is supported by an increasing number of research data. Both preclinical and clinical data results have demonstrated improved antitumor immune responses with the addition of mild hyperthermia.

Beck Protocol

The Beck Protocol was developed gradually from 1991 to 1997. It is a bioelectric, natural health protocol designed to help the body heal itself. The first step is known as micropulsing, blood electrification or microcurrent therapy. The second step is magnetic pulsing, the third is drinking ionic colloidal silver and the fourth part is drinking ozonated water. The Beck Protocol appears to have a positive effect on the immune system, at a very basic level, to help our bodies with a wide variety of health challenges.

Cell-based Therapies

Cell therapy is defined as the administration of living whole cells for the patient for the treatment of a disease. The origin of the cells can be from the same individual (autologous source) or from another individual (allogeneic source).

Immuno-Augmentive Therapy (IAT) (Immune Booster)
The objective of IAT is to restore the cancer patient’s immune competency to a level by which it can control cancer. The therapy involves injecting patients with blood fractions (deficient in cancer patients) to redress the deficiency . Patients continue to self-administer the injections from serum for whatever length of time is necessary.

Isoprinosine (Immune Booster)
Isoprinosine is an immunomodulator and is currently approved for immunorestoration in chemotherapy in some countries. Patients on chemotherapy are particularly susceptible to different viral infections as a result of chemotherapy-induced immunodepression. Adjuvant therapy with Isoprinosine can restore the cell-mediated immune response to the individual’s baseline levels.
