My Cancer-Fighting Arsenal, Part 2

Last month I posted a blog on Vitae Elixxir, the herbal extract I take as part of my cancer-fighting arsenal. Another cancer-fighting supplement I take every day is B17.

History
This vitamin has a very colored and even tragic history. In the 1960's Dr. John Richardson, MD treated cancer with B17 and enzyme therapy (more about enzymes in a future post). He was a pioneer in the alternative treatment of cancer. Dr. Richardson's work revealed that cancer was arrested, slowed, and prevented by the cyanide-containing B17.

Dr. Richardson wrote in 1977:
"Instead of patients spending their final days or years butchered in surgical theaters or micro-waved in chemotherapy and radiation rooms, I have witnessed my patients experiencing an improved quality of life and enjoyment in their remaining time."
What Does B17 Do?
B17 (also known as laetrile, amygdalin and nitrilosides) is a natural cyanide-containing compound that delivers a dose of cyanide in the presence of an enzyme group solely possessed by cancer. The dose is lethal to the cancer. B17 only affects cancerous cells; healthy tissue is not affected.

There are many stories of people with cancer taking apricot seeds and/or B17 with positive results. Foods that contain B17 include apple seeds, apricot kernels, alfalfa sprouts, wheat grass, blackberries, strawberries, buckwheat, cashews, cranberries, garbanzo beans, fava beans, lentils, millet, macadamia nuts, pecans, mung beans, walnuts and yams.

I take two capsules of B17 (500 mg each) per day. In addition, B17 rich foods are among those I eat every day.

No Magic Bullet
A word of caution: There is no magic bullet for anything. The best defense against any disease whether its the flu or cancer is a healthy diet and lifestyle that includes lots of water, vegetables, good sleep, a little exercise and a positive attitude.

Don't think you can pop some pills (prescription or otherwise) and get better or feel better without doing the work of making healthy choices in food and life.
