GOLD BLEND

GOLD BLEND




Black Cumin Seed- Nigella Sativa comes from a flowering plant found in Asia.  It has been used in Chinese medicine for centuries, as far back as the 5th century BC, and was even found in the tomb of one of the Pharaohs of Egypt.  It is a strong anti-oxidant, produces apoptosis (cell death) in cancer cells, increases circulation, and is used in treatment for cancer, diabetes, heart disease, epilepsy, allergies, colitis, and numerous other ailments.   It boosts the immune system and bone marrow.  They are also a good source of Omega-3 Fatty Acids.  The health benefits of Black Seed and Black Seed Oil are extraordinary.  Works in synergy with Honey.



Indian Long Pepper Fruit- Piper Longum has also been used for centuries, and its use dates back to the 5th century BC.  This hardened unripe pepper has proven to be a strong anti-oxidant and anti-bacterial agent.  It has shown activity against parasitic infections, protects against the effects of radiation, and induces apoptosis in many different cancer cells.  It has been proven to be effective against prostate, breast, ovarian, and colon cancers, as well as melanoma, lymphoma, leukemia and glioma tumors.  There's so much punch packed in this small fruit.  Works in synergy with Curcumin (listed below).


Mangosteen- Garcinia Mangostana is a strong anti-oxidant.  Many studies have shown this fruit's anti-cancer effect on breast, prostate, bladder, pacreatic, colon, melanoma, and colorectal cancers.  There are more than 50 xanthones found in the pericarp of this fruit, with many found to be beneficial in fighting cancer, reducing tumor growth and preventing metastasis. Mangosteen also works as an anti-inflammatory, and its effect on insulin production has been found to be therapeutic to those with diabetes or obesity.  Controlling glucose levels plays a key role in weight management and cancer prevention.  Works in synergy with Curcumin.



Dandelion Root  Yes, I mean the root of that inconsequential little weed growing in your yard.  This little plant is packed full of nutrients and cancer fighting properties. Numerous studies have now shown the great benefit of these little plants.  They have proven to be a strong anti-oxidant, inducing apoptosis in cancer cells in pancreatic cancer, leukemia, breast cancer, prostate cancer and even drug-resistant melanoma.  The root of the Dandelion contains high concentrations of Vitamin A as well as other important vitamins, and acts as a diuretic, cleansing the kidneys and liver.  Other evidence has also shown that this little plant can also positively affect insulin secretion.


Curcumin comes from the Turmeric Root, a yellowish root from the ginger family.  It is a strong anti-oxidant which protects the body from oxidative stress and inflammation.  It has been proven to be effective against cancer, Crohn's, Ulcerative Colitis, Alzheimer's, Diabetes, and even Cystic Fibrosis.  It has great wound healing and pain relieving benefits, as well as the ability to increase circulation and lower cholesterol. Works with Long Pepper and Mangosteen.


Bitter Melon- Momordica Charantia is a bitter vegetable native to Asia and is used in Asian cooking.  It has been used in Indian medicine to treat diabetes by inhibiting glucose transport throughout the body.  It has the ability to cause apoptosis, or cell death, in cancer cells.  Bitter Melon has proven to be effective against breast, lung, prostate, bladder, colon, liver, lymphoma, neuroblastoma, leukemia and other cancers.   In regard to breast cancer, one study in particular showed very promising results.  When breast cancer cells were exposed to Bitter Melon's extract, 80% of the cancer cells died within 48 hours, and none of the normal cells were affected.   You can see more information about this study here.

This category of natural compounds includes major players in preventing oxidative stress.  Like the ones above, they have cancer fighting ability to induce cancer cell death, but their role is more importantly to help alleviate inflammation caused by oxidative stress and improve circulation, cardiac function and glucose management.  These are also extremely important in building the body's immune system. 

Resveratrol comes mainly from the skin of red grapes.  It improves cardiac function and physical capacity.  It helps reduce inflammation, prevents the oxidation of LDL cholesterol and makes it more difficult for platelets to stick together and form the clots that can lead to a heart attack. Resveratrol is thought to limit metastasis of cancer cells and triggers the process of cancer cell death in Bladder, Colorectal, Gastric, Cervical, Liver, Ovarian, Colon, Breast and Leukemia.  It also helps prevent insulin resistance, a condition in which the body becomes less sensitive to the effects of the blood sugar-lowering hormone, insulin.


Taurine is a sulfur-containing amino acid found in animal tissue.  This strong anti-oxidant is known for it's ability to improve cardiac function by a number of pathways, including lowering blood pressure and reducing oxidative stress.  It calms the nervous system resulting in less reaction to stress, and it supports insulin health, helping to prevent diabetes.  Low Taurine levels are newly becoming a marker for many types of cancer.  This essential amino-acid is also a strong anti-inflammatory. 




Ashwagandha / Indian Ginseng has been known for centuries for its rejuvenating and healing properties.  It has adaptogenic properties which allow the body to deal with emotional and oxidative stress.  It is full of amino acids and vitamins.  This herb is often used for energy and vitality, memory and concentration.  Ashwagandha has also proven to have potential in selectively killing tumor cells by causing apoptosis.     



Green Tea is loaded with strong anti-oxidants that improve brain function, lower the risk of cancer and enhance fat loss. It protects cells from damage due to toxins and bacteria. It is an anti-oxidant, anti-microbial, anti-viral, anti-tumor and anti-bacterial agent.  It may also reduce risk of stroke.  Other studies look at it's ability to inhibit metastasis specifically in breast cancer cells.   





Rhodiola Rosea is also known as the golden root or arctic root.  It is a strong anti-oxidant known for it's ability to prevent fatigue, relieve depression, protect the kidneys from damage and induce apoptosis in cancer cells.  It's also a free radical scavenger and improves heart function. 



Gotu Kola / Centella Asiatica is a swamp plant that grows in Madagascar and Indonesia.  It has been used for centuries for wound healing, mental fatigue and concentration, anxiety, dementia, skin conditions, and respiratory infections.  It protects the cells against oxidative stress, and has been shown in studies to reduce liver tumors.  Gota Kola may also protect the skin against Gamma radiation. 




NATURAL HORMONE BALANCE- For Men and Women Both

I've spent months deciphering the world of Endocrine disruptors and what effects they have on our immune system, hormones, weight and overall health.  Fortunately, because I developed such a strong knowledge of cancer and ways to naturally detoxify the body and boost the immune system, this next step seemed to fall right in place.  I'm so excited to share this with all of you. 

If you are not familiar with Endocrine disruptors, you may want to go back and read my earlier post (Top 3 Things That Are Sabotaging Your Weight Loss and Health- and How to Fix it).  If you aren't interested in going back to read it, I will quickly summarize.  We eat food that has pesticides.  We use products on our bodies that contain chemicals.  We are in contact daily with environmental toxins.  Why are they bad?  They disrupt the process of our Endocrine System.  

The Endocrine System is a collection of glands that produce hormones that regulate metabolism, growth and development, tissue function, sexual function, reproduction, sleep, and mood.  If that system is not working properly, we can begin to see problems like inflammation, weight gain, arthritis, diabetes, and cancer.  And not only can the Endocrine System get disrupted by toxins we come in to contact with, but many of the foods we eat and products we use can drown our body with excess Estrogen.  This creates a hormone imbalance, which can lead to many health issues, with the biggest concern being hormone related cancers (Prostate, Breast, Ovarian, Cervical, Uterine Cancers).  And our bodies can't fix this imbalance without the proper tools. 

First, we need to detoxify our body.  Get rid of the poisons and damaged cells in the blood stream.  Then, we need to boost the immune system to help our body fight naturally.  And finally, we need to fix the hormonal imbalance and get our Endocrine system working right.  If we do those things, we will see a great shift in our body, like healthy weight, proper blood sugar regulation, decrease in inflammation, improved immune function, and so on.   That is why I took the time to research and develop what I believe to be the best combination for balancing our hormones and promoting proper Endocrine system function. 


Personal note: 

I have spent a great deal of time designing the following Natural Hormone Balance Supplement.  I've been shocked at the incredible difference I've felt.  I made mention in an earlier post about losing weight naturally by using this.  I'm down 10lbs in the past 45 days.  My hair is full, thick and soft.  (I've never had soft hair in my life).  My nails are so strong now and growing long.  My skin is getting smoother. I have energy and stamina to get through the day.  My brain feels more focused and I'm able to concentrate. 

I can say with absolute certainty that this combination was the missing piece for me.  I'm now two years out from my original cancer diagnosis, and it's like I never went through any of it.  I don't feel like I'm struggling to regain anything.  I've been taking the Gold Blend, the Silver Blend, and now the Natural Hormone Balance, and I have never felt better in my life. 


So, without further ado, here's Step Three on your path to wellness....
