The Science Behind Protandim
In past issues, I’ve tried to explain to you why Dr. Carlos Garcia, M.D. (my co-author of the Cancer-Free 4th Edition book) and I feel that Protandim is such a helpful and truly unique healing tool. In this issue, I will try to present the science for those of you who require scientific proof (as we do) before you accept any new substance. Protandim is unique among non-drug treatment in the extent and validity of its proof of action. That’s what convinced both Dr. Garcia and me to recommend it.
LOOK AT PUBMED.GOV
For starters, we suggest you take a look at the federal government’s online library of peer-reviewed medical information. It is the website http://pubmed.gov. It makes much medical research quite easy.
One of the first things to explore is the apparent importance to the research community of the concept of “oxidative stress.” If you type this term into the pubmed.gov search feature, you’ll get about 110,910 studies. That number grows daily. Most of these have been done in the last 5 or 6 years. Obviously, it is a subject with a lot of interest among researchers. That’s because this has been shown to be the primary cause of over 200 chronic degenerative conditions, including cancer.
“Oxidative stress” is simply the damage caused to our cells by the “free radicals” developed by our lifestyles. Everything from everyday cell metabolism, exhaust fumes, food, dental toxins, stress and lots of other causes produces billions of free radicals in our bodies daily. The damage they cause to our cells is primarily minimized by antioxidants. Protandim is a million times more effective than other antioxidants.
Next, try a search for “oxidative stress and cancer.” You’ll get about 11,808 summaries of studies done on this subject. The principal reason for the horrible side effects of chemotherapy and radiation is oxidative stress, so this is no surprise (see below).
Finally, try a search for “Protandim.” You’ll get 14 studies on this product. There are 13 more in the review process which will probably be added later this year. Dr. Garcia and I have both read these 14 studies. They are what convinced us that everyone we’re counselling about cancer should be encouraged to take the Protandim.
WHAT IS PROTANDIM
This product was developed in the 2002-2005 time frame. A lot of research, mostly conducted by Dr. Joe McCord, showed that a mixture of five herbal substances would have a significant impact on reducing oxidative stress. These substances combined were quite powerful in activating something called Nrf2 (nuclear factor erythroid 2-related factor) in our cells. This Nrf2 activation produces two enzymes — super oxide dismutase (SOD) and catalase — which result in an antioxidant effect a million times superior to that produced by traditional antioxidants like Vitamins C, E, A, etc.
Combining the five herbs — curcumin (turmeric), ashwaganda, bacopa, green tea and milk thistle — in a patented mixture proved very effective in reducing oxidative stress. The average reduction was 40% in 30 days taking the product. After 90 days, the average reduction was 70%. These levels of reduction of the oxidative stress reversed much of the aging process of the person’s cells and made them generally healthier.
Dr. McCord has served as the Medical Director for LifeVantage from 2003 until a few months ago. Here is an interesting video where this renowned scientist who discovered superoxide dismutase (SOD) and whose name (McCord units) is used as the measure of its presence, is discussing a study showing the effectiveness of Protandim at offsetting the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation:
Over the eight years since this product came on the market, numerous examples have been documented of recovery from everything from cancer to Alzheimers to psoriasis to Parkinson’s to autism to heart disease. Films of animals (dogs and horses, in particular) have shown dramatic recoveries. As you’re probably aware, the company which produces this (LifeVantage) cannot make any such claims as part of their promotion of the product because of FDA restrictions. However, here is one example of a recent study showing the effect of a Nrf2 Activator on Parkinson’s.
To see the documented effect of two weeks on Protandim on an ABC investigative reporter named John Quinones, take a look at this short video:
IS THERE COMPETITION?
Well, as you might expect, something as effective as Protandim has attracted some attempts to duplicate it in a synthetic drug that can be patented by the pharmaceutical companies One example is a drug called “Tecfidera/ BG-12.” It is in the final stages of approval by the FDA. Here is an interesting article by someone with no connection to LifeVantage or Protandim about the comparison between this new drug and Protandim:
Suspecting that you won’t want to read the entire article, let me quote you just one paragraph from it:
“Are there other products that are like BG-12?
Here is a study, presented at ECTRIMS last year, that shows how a natural supplement, made up of plants and called ‘Protandim,’ did better than BG-12 at activating the antioxidant cells. What’s really funny to me, is that Biogen paid for this study….and it shows another product is better.”
HOW CAN I GET IT?
Well, as you probably know, there is a website where you can easily order this product and a couple of companion products. One of them is a Protandim version for pets called Canine Health. In the last year, it has been proven on 80 dogs to restore health — particularly to older pets. The other is an anti-aging skin cream which my wife swears by which is called True Science. I have been using it lately to help heal an operation I recently had on my droopy eyelids. It is amazingly helpful. Here’s the website:
If you’re in the U.S., just click on the “Shop” link at this website. Unfortunately, the LifeVantage products can only be sold in the U.S., Canada, Mexico (True Science only), Australia, Japan and Hong Kong. If you’re ordering from Canada, please click on the “Join LifeVantage” link instead of the “Shop” link at the above website. If you’re in Australia and want the product, please send me an e-mail and I’ll put you in touch with the Australian distributor in Brisbane who can get it to you quicker.
I recommend you order as a “Preferred Customer” which sets you up for auto-ship of the amount you elect to receive. This is the only option you have outside the U.S. You can easily cancel this auto-ship at any time by simply calling the LifeVantage Customer Service at (866) 460-7241. In the meantime, ordering that way will save you 20% per bottle on the Protandim and similar discounts on the other two products. A month’s supply of the Protandim is only $40, for example.
Another Wonderful Cancer Free Boot Camp
Two weeks ago, we enjoyed the second of our Cancer Free Boot Camps at the American Center for Biological Medicine (ACBM) in Scottsdale, Arizona. About 22 attendees joined us, including two from Lagos, Nigeria, and we had a grand weekend. In addition to me and the two naturopathic doctors who operate the ACBM clinic (Dr. Dick Thom and Dr. Jeoff Drobot), we welcomed three guest speakers. We had Dr. Carlos Garcia, M.D., Medical Director of the Utopia Wellness clinic in Oldsmar, Florida as well as Dr. Mike Margolis, D.D.S., a wonderful biological dentist from Mesa, Arizona and A. J. Lanigan from Columbia, South Carolina, who developed the Transfer Point Beta Glucan product we recommend in our Cancer-Free book.
Several people also watched on their home computers the “virtual” broadcast of the presentations and Q and A. Several of the attendees were patients being treated at the ACBM for their cancers. It was a delightful weekend and we plan to repeat it sometime later this summer. We’ll let you know and we hope to see you there the next time.
Recordings of the presentations are being prepared. I’ll let you know when they’re available.
If you’re interested in trying the diagnostics and treatment for cancer offered at the ACBM clinic, please contact Dr. Dick Thom at (480) 614-5820.
Susan Hannibal Offers You A Free Opportunity
One of my readers has made you an offer you may want to consider if you want to get a handle on the emotional issues that may be part of the cause of your cancer. Her name is Susan Hannibal and here are the details:
There have been dozens of studies establishing that balance between body, mind and spirit is essential to maintain health and promote healing. Susan Hannibal is a medical intuitive and healer based in Vista, California who has been in private practice since 1999. She does highly accurate intuitive scans knowing only a client’s name and age, that serve as a blueprint for healing. Then using energy psychology techniques such as EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), she assists clients as they self-heal childhood trauma, combat trauma, panic, phobias and dissociation, (which is when someone is emotionally disconnected and unable to remember events in a given period of time from moments to years).
Susan is presently conducting research for her master’s degree and her forthcoming second book, “Emotional Detox: True Stories of Ordinary People Who Found Extraordinary Healing.” The focus of her research is to determine:
A) if there is a link between unhealed emotional trauma and their cancer in cancer patients
B) if healing that trauma and the resulting emotional patterns will result in remission of the cancer
A short survey is available at the link below. Please help Susan with her study by electing to participate on an anonymous basis. Instructions are at the survey. Susan’s web site is http://www.guidedhealing.com and she can be reached at erasePTSD@aol.com.
Here’s the link for the questionnaire Susan wants you to fill out and fax to her
Barlean’s Documents Their Discount Policy
Most of you know that we describe a method for ordering Barlean’s flaxseed oil directly from the company in our Cancer-Free (4th Edition) book. Well, it seems that Barlean’s has become a little more selective about who they offer that discount to. Part of it is because they don’t agree with Dr. Garcia and me that the only essential part of Johanna Budwig’s protocol is the cottage cheese and flaxseed oil. Here is an excerpt from the message they sent to one of my readers, who inquired about the discount:
“We do offer our products at a reduced rate (approximately a 40% discount) for individuals within the United States diagnosed with cancer, who are undergoing cancer treatment and specifically following the Budwig Protocol. We do not support Mr. Bill Henderson as he does not provide a full picture of the Budwig Protocol, and he printed our information without our permission.
We provide the discount for those who meet the following criteria: a current diagnosis of Cancer, following the Budwig Protocol as written by Dr. Johanna Budwig (not Mr. Henderson), and that there is a financial need since you would normally consume about a gallon of oil per month. If you do not have a financial need for the discount, we’d like to refer you to one of our retailers like www.swansonvitamins.com to receive great pricing on our products – up to 20% off the MSRP!
If you meet ALL ASPECTS of the above criteria, we can certainly set you up with an account as the orders would need to be called in every time to receive special pricing. Any customer service representative at 1-800-445-3529 can assist you. In terms of shipping costs, orders under $75 dollars are charged a $5 flat shipping fee and orders over $75 receive FREE shipping.”
Well, there you have it folks. Don’t dare to say to anyone at Barlean’s that you heard about anything from me. If you want to get the discount, simply follow the above guidelines and be sure to tell them you are pursuing the entire Budwig Diet, not just the CC/FO.
DENTAL TOXIN VIDEOS (21 OF THEM)
If you want to get a true Master’s Degree program on the subject of dental toxins (and possibly share it with your loved ones), you now have a great opportunity. Thanks to You Tube, there is a group of 21 great videos on root canals, mercury amalgams and other dental issues all grouped together for you to watch at your leisure.
The All-Star lineup of presenters on these 6-8 minute interviews includes: Dr. Hal Huggins, Dr. Thomas Levy, Dr. Joseph Mercola, Dr. Isaac Eliaz, Dr. Tony Jimenez, Dr. Diane Meyer and Dr,. Alison Adams. I have never seen a better collection of information on this subject. Better watch them quickly before the ADA figures out how to take them down. Here’s the link:
MMS DETAILED TESTIMONIAL — MALIGNANT MELANOMA
Ever since 2007, I have been passing information on to you about the Miracle Mineral Supplement (MMS) and its advocate, Jim Humble. Now you have an opportunity, thanks to Ron Strauss, to watch a video of a detailed account of recovery from Stage IV melanoma by an American teacher in Thailand. He goes into detail about how much he used, how long it took and how he’s doing now. It’s the best example of a current (March, 2013) and detailed account of MMS healing I’ve seen yet. Just click here to watch this 39 minute video:
BIOMAT FAR INFRARED MEDICINE
I’m sure you’ve heard of the benefits of Far InfraRed saunas. Unless you want to buy one for your home which can be quite expensive, they usually require some travel to use one. Well, here’s a really effective option called a BioMat which gives you a practical way to apply the benefits of Far InfraRed cleansing at home. Take a look at this article by Dr. Mark Sircus that Ron Strauss sent me. I think some of you may want to try it. I have no financial interest in this product, but here’s what Ron Strauss said about it:
“See the file below. I have been researching this device and have received nothing but rave reviews from all who are using it. I have found a reputable and knowledgeable distributor that I will buy one from in about a month. Let me know if you are interested in exploring this technology and I’ll tell you who to contact along with a link to their website.”
Don’t contact me about it. You’ll be wasting your time. But if you want to ask Ron about it, his e-mail is:

DR. KEITH SCOTT-MUMBY EXPLAINS MEDICAL CARE
Many of you have listened to interviews I did on my Web Talk Radio show with Dr. Keith Scott-Mumby. He is a good friend and someone I consider about the smartest person I know. In this video, he will summarize for you his 35 years of experience as an M.D. in Great Britain and a Professor, author and communicator in the U.S. It is truly valuable information summarizing his experience as a doctor treating hundreds of patients. It is the first of several videos he will be doing in coming weeks on this subject. To sign up for the future videos like this, you can go to his http://www.DietWiseAcademy.com website. Here’s the first video:
CORRECTION ON THE HCG TEST KIT
Dave Karlovich, the manufacturer of the HCG Test Kit I described in my March newsletter and our Cancer-Free book, has asked me to clarify a couple of things I said about this great kit. Here’s what Dave said to kindly correct me:
I hope that you are doing well.
I wanted to point out an error in your recent newsletter regarding the kit that we are providing. Our kit provides enough material for 2 tests. Your newsletter indicated that we could do 10 tests with the kit. While it is true that most of the material can be used repeatedly for many tests, the consumable items are limited to two tests. We are limited by the acetone in the kit. We ship 1 pint which allows for 2 tests. Other items that are consumed include the urine sample containers, the forms, and the envelopes.
We provide all of these consumables in a Re-order Kit, so that people do not have to buy things that they do not need when they gather their sample for subsequent tests. I just wanted to be sure that we did not mislead any of your valued readers.
Thanks for all that you do.
