Turmeric Extract May Prevent, Even Reverse Diabetes (Type 1 and 2)

Turmeric Extract May Prevent, Even Reverse Diabetes (Type 1 and 2)

Turmeric Extract May Prevent, Even Reverse Diabetes (Type 1 and 2)
What if the long sought after "cure" for diabetes was as safe,
affordable, and accessible as a spice sitting in your kitchen cupboard?
Leave your drugs in the chemist's pot if you can cure the patient with food."
-Hippocrates, 420 BC
Slowly but surely the world is waking up to the reality that diabetes is not only apreventable but a reversible condition, and that the drug-based model of
symptom suppression and disease management has fatal flaws. For instance,
some of the drugs used to treat type 2 diabetes actually increase the risk of
, with a recent study showing GMO insulin given to type 2 diabetics may
lead to the development of so-called "double diabetes": type 2 and type 1
diabetes, together. Clearly, if medicine can't at least abide by its founding principle
to "do no harm," it must seek the answer somewhere other than from the
"chemist's pot."
As the pharmaceutically-driven medical paradigm continues to lose adherents
by the droves, and the public seeks a system that identifies and resolves the
root causes of disease
, interest is growing in the use of natural substances
and lifestyle modifications to prevent and treat blood sugar disorders.
And unlike a few decades ago, where most of the evidence for "natural healing"
was anecdotal, there are now thousands of studies on hundreds of natural substances
and therapeutic activities that may ameliorate blood sugar disorders and their
complications. You can check out a good portion of the relevant research on
the topic on's blood sugar disorder database.
While plants like cinnamon and gymnema sylvestre have received plenty of
attention for diabetes over the years, one special plant extract that is beginning
to stand out from the crowd as being exceptionally valuable as an anti-diabetic
agent is turmeric. There are, in fact, 21 articles on turmeric's value in type
2 diabetes on our database alone
Turmeric's primary polyphenol curcumin is the main compound in the plant
that has been researched for it's blood sugar regulating properties.
One particularly striking study, published in the American Diabetic Association's
own journal, Diabetes Care, found turmeric extract to be 100% effective in
preventing pre-diabetics from developing type 2 diabetes
 -- a feat of
prevention that no FDA approved drug for type 2 diabetes has yet come even close to accomplishing.

Turmeric Extract May Reverse Pancreatic Damage In
Type 1 Diabetes

It turns out that this spice may be a powerful therapeutic intervention for more
than just type 2 diabetics. Pre-clinical research now reveals it may have a role in
reversing pancreatic damage in insulin-dependent, type 1 diabetics, who are
routinely told that their condition can not be cured. Type 1 diabetics are rarely
educated to the fact that the root cause of their disorder can be addressed:
namely, that the deficiency and/or dysfunction of the beta cells in the pancreas
responsible for producing insulin can be repaired, as well as the autoimmune
issues at the heart of the problem.  
Back in 2013, an exciting study published in the journal Diabetology & Metabolic Syndrometitled, "The effect of a novel curcumin derivative on pancreatic islet regeneration in experimental type-1 diabetes in rats (long term study),
"found that diabetic rats who received a novel water-soluble, high concentrate
(53.21%) curcumin derivative orally for 40 days showed an improvement of
their plasma glucose, insulin and C-peptide (a marker for the health and insulin
producing capability of the beta cells) levels, that began after about 4 months,
and continued to improve until the 10 month mark, when their values were almost
completely normalized and evidence of significant pancreatic regeneration could
be observed. The researchers concluded the novel curcumin derivative (NCD):
"...possesses antidiabetic actions and enhanced pancreatic islets
figure 2Plasma C peptide
The daily dose used in this rodent study (80 mg/kg) was the body weight
equivalent of 6,400 mg or 6.4 grams of curcumin for an average North American
male adult (80 kilograms/176 lbs). Rodent and human physiology is, of course,
radically different, but significant crossovers nonetheless do exist. In another
article, titled "Why Turmeric May Be the Diseased Liver's Best Friend," we
reviewed research indicating that turmeric may help to reverse damage in and
even regenerate the diabetic liver, as well as safety literature on what is a safe
human dose:

A 2001 study in cancer patients reported that quantities of curcumin up to 8 g, administered per day for three months, were not toxic and resulted in significant anti-cancer properties in a number of those treated.
[5] Considering that turmeric is only 3-4% curcumin by weight, this implies that a larger quantity of turmeric can be consumed safely, as well.

Given that organ transplantation (pancreatic islet transplants) is exceedingly expensive and prohibitive due to a lack of donor material and the potential for rejection by the host, the notion that a safe, affordable, and non-prescription spice extract like curcumin may have significant therapeutic value and may even regenerate damaged pancreatic tissue, is truly exciting. That said, it should be noted that since curcumin is not patentable, it is unlikely the
800 million dollars or more needed to fund the requisite clinical trials needed to obtain FDA drug approval will materialize. Because the so-called "evidence" needed to justify the use of a new treatment is locked behind an insurmountably high paywall, don't count on randomized, controlled, trials being performed on this "natural cure" in the near or distant future. 
In this study, the authors surmised that the ameliorative effects curcumin treatment on type 1 diabetic rodents observed were the result of beta cell regeneration and they explained the theory behind how this works:

Each tissue or organ is believed to contain a small sub-population of cells that is capable of self-renewal and has the ability to give rise to each mature cell type [47]. Thus, one of the most promising sources of beta cells might be pancreatic stem cells.

The researchers theorized that curcumin likely produces,
"...a favorable systemic and pancreatic environment to foster bone marrow transplantation and islet neogenesis. Accordingly, administration of curcumin; as an established anti-inflammatory and immune modulatory drug; would likely boost and preserve the process of islet regeneration; which was evidently proven true in this study."

Curcumin's "immunomodulatory" benefit in type 1 diabetes, also known as autoimmune diabetes, appears to be based on it reducing the activity of the host immune system in attacking self-structures. In fact, another recent study, published in 2014 in the journalClinical and Experimental Immunology titled, "
Curcumin ameliorates autoimmune diabetes. Evidence in accelerated murine models of type 1 diabetes," found that curcumin down-regulates the T cell response that destroys pancreatic beta cells, resulting in an improvement in autoimmune or type 1 diabetes.

It is important for the reader to know that curcumin is not a magic bullet; nor is it the only natural substance studied to have potential beta cell regenerative properties. Indeed, pancreatic regeneration has been induced experimentally for at least 23 different natural substances. We have a keyword dedicated to indexing relevant research on the topic here:
beta cell regeneration. We've highlighted 10 of the most compelling ones in our article, "10 Natuaral Substances That Could Help Cure Type 1 Diabetes."
As the research continues to accumulate on the value of natural substances for disease prevention and treatment, it is clear the future of medicine will rely on returning to the wisdom of the ancients, where Hippocrates' fundamental principle that one can "cure the patient with food" is once again passionately embraced.

Breakthrough cancer treatment called GcMAF

Breakthrough cancer treatment called GcMAF

Monday, July 27, 2015 17:12

INVESTIGATION: Three days before Dr. Bradstreet was found dead in a river, U.S. govt. agents raided his research facility to seize a breakthrough cancer treatment called GcMAF

Monday, July 27, 2015
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger

(NaturalNews) The history of the suppression of medical science in America is a long one, filled with true accounts of pioneering doctors and clinicians being threatened, intimidated and even assassinated in order to bury emerging cures and keep the “sick care” industry in control. (The American Medical Association, for example, has beenfound guilty by the U.S. federal courts of a conspiracy to destroy the chiropractic industry, by the way.)

Over the last few days, we’ve learned that before being found shot in the chest and floating in the river, pioneering medical researcher Dr. Bradstreet was working with a little-known molecule that occurs naturally in the human body. Called, “GcMAF”, this molecule has the potential to be a universal cancer cure for many people. It has also been shown to reverse signs of autism in the vast majority of patients receiving the treatment.
While GcMAF is perfectly legal as a treatment in dozens of advanced nations around the world, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has outlawed it, calling it an “unapproved drug.” It is with this designation — an effort to suppress the forward progress of medical science — that the U.S. government conducted a raid on Dr. Bradstreet’s clinic, specifically seeking to confiscate GcMAF in order to shut down his research and halt his treatment of patients. Meanwhile, Big Pharma getsspecial permission to unleash untested, experimental drugs on the public as long as those drugs earn sufficient profits.

In this article, I summarize the videos, articles and documents covering GcMAF and the mysterious death of Dr. Bradstreet. An exhaustive investigation needs to be pursued on this matter, possibly involving private investigators. The timing and manner of Dr. Bradstreet’s death seems highly suspicious, especially in light of the many other holistic doctors who have recently been found dead under mysterious circumstances. (Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez died just days ago…)
Is there a motive for the murder of pioneering cancer researchers working on a possible universal cancer cure? Of course there is… it’s the most common motive in the world: MONEY
A universal cancer cure would destroy the profitability of the highly lucrative cancer industry and collapse the American Cancer Society, hospitals, oncology clinics and pharmaceutical companies that depend on chemotherapy revenues to stay profitable. Key to their profitability is the inescapable fact that conventional cancer treatments simply don’t work most of the time, creating a reliable profit stream of repeat business from patients who are never cured (by design).

Would the cancer industry murder doctors to protect its profits? Of course it would. The industry kills patients as a routine part of its business operations! For example, an oncologist named Farid Fata was recently sentenced to 56 years in prison for falsely diagnosing patients with cancer so that he could sell them chemotherapy treatments they didn’t need. See the article Cancer doctors ‘fess up to making false diagnoses just to make more money.

INVESTIGATION: Here’s what we know so farMultiple hat tips to all the outstanding citizen journalists, video creators and bloggers who have created the items cited below:

Video detailing the Dr. Bradstreet search warrant, served June 30, during which the U.S. government seized GcMAF from Dr. Bradstreet’s research clinic: story that covers the apparent series of murders of holistic doctors, many of whom are working on advanced treatment protocols that render high-profit sectors of conventional medicine OBSOLETE:Yet another doctor was just found murdered inside his home here on the East Coast of Florida. This makes six doctors to be found dead in the last month just from this region of the country alone. Four out of the six were found dead here in Florida. We lost the holistic Dr. Teresa Sievers, MD, who was found murdered in her Florida home just weeks ago. We’ve also lost the alternative Dr. Jeff Bradstreet, MD, who was found in a river with a gunshot to his chest. He’d recently moved to Georgia from Florida. We’ve also lost the Osteopath. Dr. Riley, who was found in Georgia at her home; just a few hours from the Florida border. She was found with a gunshot wound to her head.
Now we’ve lost Dr. Schwartz MD, who was found murdered in his home, on Sunday, July 19th, 2015. This was four weeks to the day after the death of the first physician: (Dr. Bradstreet MD) who I broke the story on a month ago. His family is still seeking answers as to what happened to him and they’re some of the kindest people I know. The latest MD, Dr. Schwartz, in the picture above, lived just north of the fit, healthy, holistic Dr. Hedendal; who was the second doctor to be found dead this past Father’s Day, in Boca Raton. This was the same day that Dr. Holt died at the age of 33. Both were fathers; and again, both men died here in Florida on June 21st, 2015.

Stepwise incubation of purified Gc protein with immobilized beta-galactosidase and sialidase generated probably the most potent macrophage activating factor (termed GcMAF) ever discovered, which produces no adverse effect in humans…
After about 16-22 administrations (approximately 3.5-5 months) of GcMAF, these patients had insignificantly low serum enzyme levels equivalent to healthy control enzyme levels, ranging from 0.38 to 0.63 nmole/min/mg protein, indicating eradication of the tumors. This therapeutic procedure resulted in no recurrence for more than 4 years.

In other words, the administration of GcMAF eradicated tumors and left patients cancer-free for 4+ years with no additional treatment!


GcMAF (Globulin component Macrophage Activating Factor), a blood product, claims to treat a range of conditions including cancer, HIV and autism…
More than 10,000 vials were seized at this site and production of this unlicensed medicine has now ceased. These products were sold through various European websites and UK patients may have bought it from one of these websites. We are working with colleagues in other countries to alert them to the potential risks. Our investigations are ongoing and we have received no reports to date of side effects caused by this product.
That same page lists some of the websites where GcMAF had been available for purchase:
GcMAF (Gc Protein derived Macrophage Activating Factor) – Gc MAF treatment is a highly effective macrophage activating therapy, used to stimulate the immune system and activate macrophages so that they can destroy cancer cells and other abnormal cells in the body.
What exactly is Second Generation GcMAF?
High Dose Second Generation Gc-MAF is produced using our new Patent Pending process which was developed here in Japan by Saisei Mirai in collaboration with Dr Hitoshi Hori and Dr Yoshihiro Uto at the University of Tokushima who have been studying GcMAF for over 20 years. Studies on GcMAF began at the University of Tokushima in 1992, after they were introduced to Dr Nobuto Yamamoto’s work and a collaboration began…
Second Generation GcMAF is made using a new and improved 2nd generation method of Gc-MAF production which is 10-20 times more concentrated and is more active and stable than other GcMAF that is currently available. Importantly, this much higher concentration GcMAF has been clinically demonstrated to be largely free of any side effects in the great majority of patients and is much more stable because it is resistant to oxidation.
That same site describes Oral GcMAF as follows: “Oral GcMAF is a form of GcMAF produced from bovine colostrum by Saisei Mirai which was developed in collaboration with Tokushima University.”
It also lists the following health conditions as being treatable with GcMAF, potentially a “universal cancer cure” substance:
Gc-MAF and/or oral Colostrum MAF macrophage activation therapy is indicated in the treatment of any diseases where there is immune dysfunction or where the immune system is compromised, such as:
Autoimmune diseases
Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV)
Hepatitis B virus (HBV)
Herpes Simplex virus (HSV)
Hepatitis C virus (HCV)
Multiple sclerosis (MS)
Urinary tract infection (UTI)
Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD)
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA)
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)
Lyme disease (Lyme borreliosis)
IgA deficiency disorder
Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME)
Mycobacteria infections
Parkinson’s disease
Human papillomavirus (HPV)
Lupus (Systemic lupus erythematosus, SLE)
Dengue fever
Pneumonia infection
Warts caused by viral infection
Malaria Influenza virus (flu)
Herpes simplex virus (HSV)
Q fever (Coxiella burnetii)
Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
Chicken pox (varicella zoster virus)
Respiratory tract infections
Ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease
Type 1 diabetes (T1DM), insulin-dependent diabetes (IDDM)
Type 1.5 diabetes, Latent autoimmune diabetes of adults (LADA)
Do you see yet why the medical establishment must SUPPRESS GcMAF and destroy all knowledge of its clinical applications? This one substance holds the potential to render numerous vaccines and pharmaceuticals utterly obsolete.
Researchers and practitioners have demonstrated that GcMAF can reverse diseases that attack the immune system such as: chronic inflammation, bacterial and viral infections, chronic herpes, chronic acne, Lyme disease, fibromyalgia osteoporosis, Hodgkin’s, Lupus, MS, Parkinson’s and remarkably – autism.
A clinical study out of Italy on 94 children with autism showed that 83 of them made considerable progress while on GcMAF. The most common reported improvements involve:
• Cognitive abilities including attention and focus, learning and understanding, receptiveness and awareness of the environment and both receptive and expressive language gains.
• Social Skills including willingness to interact and communicate with peers.
• Behavior including less hyperactivity, less stereotypical behaviors and improved cooperation and compliance.
In another study of 1500 children with autism, 85% had high levels of viruses and a compromised immune system. All 1500 received weekly GcMAF injections and 70% of the children responded to the treatment with reduced symptoms and another 15% made full recoveries. The other 15% did not respond.

It was stated that the reduction of autistic symptoms is permanent provided that GcMAF has been taken long enough for the body to produce its own GcMAF which typically takes 24 weeks.
THE SYSTEMATIC SUPPRESSION OF MEDICAL SCIENCE TO PROTECT THE LUCRATIVE CANCER TREATMENT INDUSTRY (chemotherapy, oncology, radiotherapy, etc.) covers the systematic suppression of advanced cancer treatments and cures:

Back in 1993, Nobuto Yamamoto, then working at Temple University School of Medicine in Philadelphia, PA, USA, first described a remarkable molecule. His paper reported the conversion of vitamin D3 binding protein (DBP, known in humans as Gc) into a potent macrophage-activating factor (MAF), known as Gc-MAF. Macrophages are a key part of the human immune system with two roles: to engulf and destroy pathogens and cellular debris, and to recruit other immune cells to respond to the pathogen.
Gc-MAF hasn’t had the benefit of a single patent owner – as a natural molecule, it cannot be patented without being modified – with the will and resources to push it under the noses of the public and health authorities. Dr Yamamoto has run small human trials in breast, prostate and colorectal cancers, with promising results.

David Noakes might just be the person to bring Gc-MAF into the mainstream. He’s the CEO of Immuno Biotech Ltd. and spokesperson for First Immune Gc-MAF, a project he describes as, “PhD and BSc biochemists and biomedical scientists… with external doctors, oncologists and scientists who kindly provide advice, committed to bringing some of the increasing number of published but relatively unused medical cures to as many people as we can.” At the moment, Noakes and his colleagues are supplying Gc-MAF to 30 countries where it is legal, via a network of “around 300″ doctors. Their Gc-MAF is made to extremely high standards, and is being used in ongoing clinical research by Noakes’ collaborators and others. Their ultimate goal is to, “Build the case that GcMAF is effective for various illnesses, which will help to make it available to the public”. 
GcMAF suppliers fighting for survival against a global medical monopoly that profits from disease 
MUST-SEE website:

From the site:
The medical laws have been changed over the last 40 years so that all the brilliant breakthroughs in cancer are denied to the British public. Lord Maurice Saatchi had to watch his wife die, while his doctor told him the only thing he was allowed to prescribe her was chemotherapy, which would shorten her life. He hopes to bring the Medical Innovation Bill to Parliament, so instead of obeying a destructive government law, a doctor will be able to prescribe whatever treatment is best for the patient…
Bad law kills, and Britain has the worst medical laws in Europe. The 1939 Cancer Act makes it illegal to discuss the possibility cancer can be cured, which is partly why 160,000 people die unnecessarily of cancer in Britain every year. Science and treatments are decades ahead of where the medical industry is today. The MHRA’s job is to get life saving treatments like GcMAF out to people as quickly as possible. Instead they block them to protect billion dollar Big Pharma monopolies, who also fund the MHRA. Over a hundred thousand lives could be saved every year if the 1939 Cancer Act were repealed, and the MHRA were closed down.
There are 142 eminent scientists who have published GcMAF research papers on the US National Library of Medicine alone.
Your GcMAF empowers your body to cure itself. In a healthy person your own GcMAF has 11 actions discovered so far, including two on cells, three excellent effects on the brain, and 6 on cancer. Amongst these 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 stops its 11 beneficial effects, and neutralises your immune system. So diseases become chronic, and cancer cells grow unchecked.
Minutes after a receiving a dose, 10 of the body’s actions restart. In three weeks of two GcMAF 0.25ml doses a week, your immune system is rebuilt to above normal strength. You need two doses a week for typically 24 weeks for many diseases and early cancers, up to seven one ml doses a week and a year for stage 4 cancers. Your body then takes the disease down without side effects, and successfully in 80% of cases -depending upon how well you follow the protocol under “Treatment Protocol” on this website.
What is GcMAF?
It is a human protein. One week’s GcMAF looks like a small raindrop. If properly produced it is perfectly sterile, and a most ethical course for doctors.
GcMAF is therefore a replacement therapy for those who can’t make their own. Taking GcMAF replaces the missing part of the immune system, and also acts as the body’s own internal medicine.
GcMAF is extracted and isolated; its a 24 step process, and at the end it must have tests to prove its sterility and activity. (If it does not come with published tests, its probably not GcMAF.) One GcMAF has been tested in universities, laboratories and clinics, where, as a result of the testing, consistent activity and sterility have always been found, and been the subject of 40 scientific research papers.
What does GcMAF do?
The GcMAF Conference 2013 showed GcMAF is a far more powerful molecule than thought, both in terms of the science, and doctors’ results. In stage 4 cancer, some doctors who use the full protocol, listed on “Treatment Strategies,” are saving every patient (if they have not had chemotherapy.) Success can be achieved with all tumour cancers including breast, lung, prostate, pancreatic and melanoma.
GcMAF can eradicate chronic inflammation and viral infections. It is better than antibiotics in many areas, and 25% successful with Autism, 50% or more with Chronic Herpes, Chronic Acne, Chronic cirrhosis of the liver, Chronic kidney disease, Chronic depression, Colitis, Crohn’s, Fibromyalgia, Hepatitis, Herpes, LMBBS, ME/CFS, Osteoporosis, Periodontal disease, Psoriasis and various types of Immune dysfunction including allergies. Research shows GcMAF can halt deterioration in Parkinsons, multiple sclerosis (MS), dementia and ALS, and in its role of immune system regulator, can reverse diseases that attack the immune system like Lupus and Arthritis. And is effective with wound healing. Its successful with tumour cancers, and some others.
In addition to rebuilding a depressed immune system, GcMAF:
Inhibits angiogenesis – stops blood supply to tumours
Activates macrophages – phagocytosis and destruction of cancer cells
Apoptosis – suicide of cancer cells
Reverts the cancer cell phenotype to normal (Turns cancer cells into healthy cells)
Reduces the metastatic potential of human cancer cells in culture.
Increases energy production at the mitochondrial level – ME/CFS
Improves human neuronal metabolic activity through cAMP signaling – autism, ME/CFS, MS, ALS
Counters toxic effects including cadmium – ME/CFS
It abolishes neuropathic pain due to neuro-oxidative stress (stress due to the anti-cancer drug oxaliplatin) in the lab. (neurodegenerative diseases and autism that have oxidative stress as a pathogenetic mechanism)
It increases neuronal connectivity by promoting differentiation and the formation of dendrites and neuritis (autism and ME/CFS, where there is a lack of connectivity between neurons).
See the 31 research papers published, particularly Brescia, and the 60 published by others listed under “The science”.
80% of terminal stage four tumour cancers cases can be saved (40% if they’ve had chemo), but usually when they are closely monitored, which is why residential Treatment Centres are being run in Switzerland. If they have three months to live and have not had chemo, almost no one needs to be lost.
The 180 scientists who have published papers on trials of GcMAF selected those in the early stages of cancer and HIV, and reported nearly 100 percent success, with no recurrence after many years. They did not attempt trials on people with large tumours.
Our trials are quite different: many people are over 50, some over 80, with advanced or terminal cancers, with significant tumour mass. Most come to us when their doctors tell them they can do no more.
The life of GcMAF is only six days – you have to keep taking it until your disease has gone (ie your nagalase is under 0.65 nmol/min/mg) then a further 8 weeks, or the immune system gets shut down again.
How long should you take GcMAF for?
8 weeks for chronic herpes/acne, fibromyalgia, inflammation.
Allow 24 weeks plus of GcMAF for: Autism (85% improve, 25% eradication), CFS (70% eradication), HIV, Lyme (8% respond, most appear to have the VDR gene blocked and the viruses conceal themselves with biofilms) and stage 1 to 2 cancer, (80% respond).
Late stage cancer, if you follow “Treatment Protocol” again has 80% responders, but it takes a year to 18 months to become cancer free.
Cirrhosis of the liver: 16 months
Remember everyone responds differently. We can’t say how you will respond.
The more minor the disease, the easier it is for GcMAF to eradicate. GcMAF needs normal levels of vitamin D to function strongly (take 10,000iu a day). in low responders, larger doses are required.
We have probably proved GcMAF can work for people up to age 90, and can destroy large tumour mass. See “Participants experiences”.
If you have your blood taken for monocyte counts, relevant markers and vitamin D levels, and again for a nagalase test at the beginning, you should see on your next test after three weeks that your immune system is back to full strength, and after 8 weeks significantly falling nagalase will indicate the disease is losing its grip. Don’t stop the GcMAF until your nagalase gets below 0.65 nmol/min/mg, when it loses the ability to prevent your body producing your own GcMAF, and then you no longer need ours. Even better, get scans.
Autism children can improve at five weeks with substantial improvements at 8 weeks. See “Participants experiences.” But everyone is different.
The beauty of using your own immune system to attack disease or cancer is that it remembers how to defeat it for the rest of your life: it doesn’t come back. And unlike chemotherapy, the side effects are trivial.
The only way you can tell if GcMAF is genuine and active is to test with living cells in a laboratory. See “Quality and Tests of our GcMAF.” To recap:
We put live macrophages cells and MCF7 breast cancer cells together; nothing happens. Then we add GcMAF; in 72 hours the macrophages eat all the MCF7 cancer cells. We then put only GcMAF and MCF7 together, and the GcMAF turns the cancer cells back into healthy cells.
We have GcMAF available for preclinical trials. See “Buy GcMAF”.

You must read at least all of “Buy GcMAF” and “Treatment strategies” on the left if you want to take this further. And you must be prepared to give us feedback.
Patent document on GcMAFSee the Yamamoto patent involving GcMAF:

Cancerous cells and HIV-infected cells secrete -N-acetylgalactosaminidase into the blood stream, resulting in deglycosylation of serum Gc protein. This inactivates the MAF precursor activity of Gc protein, leading to immunosuppression… When peripheral blood monocytes/macrophages of 175 cancer patients bearing various types of cancer were treated in vitro with 100 pg GcMAF/ml, monocytes/macrophages (phagocytes) of all cancer patients were activated for phagocytic and superoxide generating capacity. This observation indicates that patient phagocytes are capable of being activated…
Also see coverage on GcMAF:
first heard about GcMAF almost a year ago. At the same time, I had first learned about “nagalase”, a blood test that is used to in part determine whether or not one might be a candidate for GcMAF therapy. Nagalase is an enzyme that prevents Vitamin D receptors (VDR) from being activated on the surface of the macrophage. As a result, macrophages are not “activated” and our immune systems are not able to properly respond to invaders.
Here are some points that I have learned thus far on GcMAF:
- GcMAF has reportedly been tested more for safety, purity, etc. than other human blood products.
- Macrophages are cultured, destroyed, and the GcMAF receptors are purified.
- Treatment is via injection 1x/week for 8-20 weeks. Dose is titrated initially to avoid exacerbation or Herx responses as much as possible.
- A commonly used dose is .25ml once weekly (a 2.2 ml vial should last 8 injections).
- The primary test used in looking at whether or not GcMAF may be a reasonable intervention is nagalase.
- Nagalase inactivates macrophages.
- I personally would NEVER consider this option without having a baseline nagalase test. Normal is < 0.95. Mine was 2.9.
The practitioner I worked with suggested that 2.9 was in the range of someone with HIV or cancer in terms of the impact on the immune system. I’d like to hear from others in the Lyme community as you get test results as well to see if there is a pattern of elevated nagalase in those with Lyme disease. Whether or not Lyme itself has anything to do with nagalase elevation is something I have not been able to find anything on. We certainly all have underlying viral co-factors that are likely in play as well, but I suspect that Borrelia may also play a role in nagalase elevation.
- In healthy college students, a nagalase 0.4 is not uncommon (the lower the better).
- At 2.9, my practitioner was surprised that I did not have more cognitive deficits such as memory loss and other cognitive issues.
- It has been suggested that ongoing antimicrobial therapy without a working immune system is like leaving the house with the door wide open inviting burglars in. By using GcMAF to activate macrophages, nagalase drops, and one may regain a functional immune system. The door is then closed to further invaders and we may no longer serve as a microbe hotel.
- Maintenance therapy should not be needed once the immune system is once again properly functioning.
- Activated macrophages only remain active for 7 days so any negative responses are generally short-lived. That said, some people do have strong inflammatory responses that are not believed to be typical die-off reactions.
- It has been indicated that in some cases, other medications may be needed in order to manage the inflammatory response. This is another reason that one needs to be working closely with a knowledgeable practitioner before considering GcMAF in my opinion. In the CFS and GcMAF world, this more severe form of a die-off reaction is called IRIS.
- VDR genetics do not seem to play a role in predicting response as earlier thought according to one practitioner that I have spoken with. That said, Vitamin D levels do correlate with the positive response rate of GcMAF. Thus, Vitamin D supplementation may be required in order to optimize outcome.
- Other than die-off reactions or activation of symptoms (inflammation), no other side effects are generally expected.
- Nagalase should be monitored every 1-2 months while on treatment to determine the required duration of the therapy. Target nagalase after treatment would be 0.4 to 0.6.
- Elevated nagalase has a profound detrimental effect on the immune system. Elevated nagalase is often presumed to be related to microbes of viral origin or cancer. Viruses that are nagalase producers open the door to chronic infections.
- Hemagglutinin contains nagalase and is also found in flagella of some bacteria so it could also be the case that some bacteria may produce nagalase.
- Parents with ASD children also often have elevated nagalase.
- A practitioner I spoke with likened Lyme disease to a “peat moss fire” burning below the surface. Activating macrophages should help to deal with the fire.
- GcMAF should be helpful in dealing with other infections that are not of viral origin; for example, Borrelia, Bartonella, and other infections commonly associated with Tick-Borne Infections (TBIs). GcMAF is active against many cancers and many different kinds of microbes.
- Neopterin is another test that is sometimes used as an indicator of immune suppression. As macrophages become activated, neopterin may rise and later fall. If one is in the normal range for neopterin and has an immune-related illness, this could be an indication that the immune system is suppressed and not responding appropriately.
- People with autoimmune conditions can generally use GcMAF. However, GcMAF may be contraindicated in people with Multiple Sclerosis.
- Reduction in nagalase is generally seen early in the course of treatment; within the first 3-6 weeks. In some studies, nagalase dropped by over 50% in less than six weeks.
- Cancer patients may initially feel as bad on GcMAF as they do on chemotherapy, but often feel much better after the first month.
- Anti-inflammatories may limited the effect of GcMAF.
- Enzymes and biofilm-reducing supplements may have a negative impact on GcMAF therapy and may be best avoided. It is still too early to know what the impact may be, but one practitioner I spoke with feels that it is best to avoid these.
- One should not be on any immune-suppressing agents while on GcMAF as the immune system must be partially functional in order to respond appropriately to the treatment.
- A common pattern is to see elevated lymphocytes, high nagalase, and low NK cells. Once nagalase drops, it may be the case that NK cell function could be positively impacted. CD57 is a type of NK cell. It is too early to know if this proves to be true, but it is one of the things I’m quite interested in.
Open the “Stop Fighting Cancer” PDF document and search it for “GcMAF” to read some intriguing passages:
Researchers testing GcMAF stated it, “works 100% of the time to eradicate cancer completely, and cancer does not recur even years later.” (This was stated based on the tested group of patients -nothing works 100% for everyone) The weekly injection GcMAF, a harmless glyco-protein activates the human immune system which then can kill the growing cancer. Studies among breast cancer and colon cancer patients produced complete remissions lasting 4 and 7 years respectively. This glyco-protein ‘cure’ is totally without side effect but currently goes unused and completely ignored by cancer doctors. Why? Maybe it is because there is little money to be made in selling it. For less than $2000USD a cancer patient can obtain an adequate amount of GcMAC.
When human macrophages were treated in vitro with 100 pg GcMAF/ml for 3 hours and a prostate cancer cell line LNCaP was added with an effector/target ratio of 1.5, approximately 51% and 82% of LNCaP cells were killed by 4 and 18 hours of incubation, respectively [14,15]. This in vitro tumoricidal capacity of macrophages activated by GcMAF led us to investigate the therapeutic efficacy of GcMAF for prostate cancer. GcMAF therapy as a single remedy modality can eradicate metastatic breast and colorectal cancers most effectively…

Diabetes: An Entirely Preventable & Reversible Condition

Diabetes: An Entirely Preventable & Reversible Condition

Posted on: 
Friday, February 24th 2012 at 12:30 pm

The title of this article may sound like heresy to those who have been schooled
to believe that when diabetes "happens" to you, it is with you for life. There is far
more to the story than both drug and naturally-based palliative medicine normally
touches upon. 
According to the American Diabetes Association (ADA) statistics, diabetes now
afflicts 25.8 million Americans, or 8.3% of our population. Only 5% of diabetics
are type 1, where through autoimmune destruction of insulin producing beta-cells,
they are told they have a lifelong dependence on insulin. The rest are classified
as type 2, resulting from insulin resistance (the cells of the body stop responding
to insulin) combined in some cases with insulin deficiency. Additionally, according
 to the ADA 1 in every 4 Americans have pre-diabetes, or 79 million.
What's causing this epidemic?
While geneticists apply vast amounts of time, energy and money to finding the
"causes" of disease in our genes, much less attention is placed on well-known
 triggers of autoimmunity such as infections, vaccines, pesticide and petroleum
exposure (diesel fuel particles) and the consumption of foods like wheat,
cow milk and soy (unfermented, GMO and/or excessive) are the major contributing
factors in the development of type 1 diabetes. Additionally, the consumption of
high fructose corn syrup and hydrogenated oil and basic deficiencies of omega-3
fatty acids, magnesium and chromium contribute to the development of type
2 diabetes.

Blaming "bad genes" on diseases like diabetes is a convenient way to escape
the obvious things we can do individually, and as a culture, to prevent the escalation
of an already epidemic problem.

We shouldn't settle for the unlikely prospect of a future "cure" via the pharmaceutical
pipeline, gene therapy, stem cell research or similar high-priced technological
endeavors, when the cause (and therefore the cure) of diabetes may be as close to
us as what is at the end of our fork.

It is accepted truth that type 1 diabetes involves the immune system attacking
the insulin-producing beta cells in the pancreas. Subsequent damage to the pancreas
leads to the reduced capacity to produce insulin. While geneticist look for the
 "bad genes" that are supposedly "causing" the autoimmune problem, it is well
documented that in susceptible individuals something in wheat known as gliadin,
for instance, stimulates diabetogenic class II HLA antigens on the surface of
the pancreatic islet cells (cells that normally do no display these antigens), marking
 them for autoimmune destruction. [Do dietary lectins cause disease? BMJ.
Also: The Dark Side of Wheat].

Not everyone who eats wheat will develop diabetes. Different people will exhibit
differing degrees of susceptibility to wheat proteins and this is why it is right to
say that there is a "genetic component" to the development of type 1 diabetes,
or to any disease. But acknowledging the existence of genetic differences and differing susceptibilities to illness in a population is not to say that genes are "causing"
the disease (read my short essay on why genes don't "cause" disease here).

In the case of the wheat protein gliadin, it is not the gene that is causing the islet
cell to present an antigen on its surface. It takes wheat gliadin to activate the
genes necessary for this cellular transformation. To use an analogy, the genes
predisposing one to higher risk for diabetes are like an "unloaded gun."
The "bullets" are certain antigenic foods like wheat, cow's dairy and
(unfermented, GMO and/or excessive) soy. The "triggers" that "fire" this
"loaded gun" are varied, from prolonged exposure to these foods, to increased
intestinal/gut permeability, vaccinations, viral infections, pesticide and chemical
exposures and perhaps a multitude of as of yet unknown factors.

If we know that the two most commonly lauded "health foods," cow's milk products
and wheat are implicated in the development of type 1 diabetes, wouldn't it be a
good idea to remove them from the diets of our young as a precaution?
What is the other alternative? Succumb to the fatalistic fallacies of the "gene theory"
of disease, and just hope that our children won't develop the disease because
they do not have "the bad gene," or have just been lucky in the game of nutritional
 Russian roulette?

Even after the beta cells in the pancreas have experienced significant levels of
destruction, and there is now insufficient insulin to keep blood sugar below toxic
levels, the medical establishment pretends like the body's self-healing and
regenerative abilities don't exist. Every minute 60,000 cells in our body are reborn,
and over the course of 100 days all approximately 17 trillion are replaced by
new cells. If one can remove the causes of autoimmune self-destruction by
clearing infections, removing diabetogenic foods, correcting mineral and vitamin
deficiencies and imbalances, shifting the tissue and blood pH back from dangerously
 acidic levels, and supplementing the diet with proven beta-cell regenerating
foods, herbs, or nutrients, the pancreas (in some cases) can regenerate
beta cell function. [see list of beta cell regenerators here].
Ideally a good endocrinologist or clinician will test for C-peptide levels the moment (s)
he is confronted with a newly diagnosed type 1 diabetic. The proinsulin precursor
to insulin produced by your beta cells is composed of three parts: two insulin side
chains, named A and B, and a peptide holding the two together known as C.
 Once the proinsulin is enzymatically degraded by the beta cells and its constituent
parts released into serum to do their job, it splits off into three separate parts
leaving the C-peptide as an accurate marker of just how much insulin the diabetic
body is producing. Taking a baseline reading at the beginning of treatment
the pancreas' level of health insofar as it reflects its remaining capacity to produce
insulin. Instead of blindly throwing synthetically produced insulin at the problem
(which through a negative feedback loop may cause beta cell regeneration to flounder,
or cause further atrophy of those cells) a bare minimum of insulin should be used
while encouraging the diabetic pancreas to come back on line with more of its own
production.  Also, natural substances could be used that protect the remaining
 beta cells from further degeneration.

Moreover, the form of insulin being passed on as "bioidentical" with misleading
names like Humulin and Humolog is a byproduct of recombinant DNA technology.
All prescribed forms on the market, including Lantus, come from GMO E. coli
bacteria which produce a form which is not as compatible with the human body
 as the once universally available bovine or porcine forms. Access to glandular
extracts have been barred in the US mostly due to drug company pressures
(You can order these animal forms from Canada over the internet).
 If the drug companies and their enforcers (FDA) have their way, all bio-identicals
 and/or animal glandulars will be made illegal or unavailable in the future, including
Armour thyroid in favor of levothyroxine.

Ultimately, type 1 diabetes can be prevented. Even after there is established damage
to the pancreas, much of the damage can be reversed. These words may be heretical
to the conventional medical establishment, but absolutely rudimentary from the
perspective of basic biology and enlightened nutrition
Type 2 diabetes, and the pre-diabetic state of insulin resistance that precedes it,
are caused by the following preventable factors:

1) Excessive consumption of empty calories.
2) Inactivity; lack of exercise.
3) Consumption of "hidden sweets," which are high-glycemic foods that don't taste
sweet but make the blood sweet, e.g pasta, cereal, crackers.
a) Excess sugar, but even worse....high fructose corn syrup, and other sources of
concentrated fructose: e.g. agave.
4) Hydrogenated oils.
5) Nutritional deficiencies of minerals, especially magnesium, chromium and zinc, and
omega 3 fatty acids, as found in foods like flaxseed, walnuts and wild fish.
6) Chemical exposures, including environmental pollution, e.g. pesticides, and drugs,
e.g. various prescribed and over the counter drugs.

One of the basic mechanisms of insulin-resistant hyperglycemia (type 2 diabetes)
 is as follows:

When we eat beyond our capacity, excess energy is stored in the body as glycogen
and saturated fat. When through prolonged over-consumption of food our body no
longer has room to store these unneeded calories, insulin resistance emerges.
In order to protect from over-nutrition, the fat and muscle cells begin to lose the
number of insulin receptors and/or loose function, thus reducing the amount of
glucose that may enter. This causes the blood sugar to raise to unhealthy levels,
leaving the pancreas with no other option than to overcompensate and produce
more insulin. The resultant elevation of insulin levels can cause a number of adverse cardiovascular, neurological and endocrine effects.

If this cycle continues, eventually the insulin producing beta cells may become exhausted and lose their ability to produce insulin, resulting in "double diabetes" where you have low insulin and high blood sugar as well as insulin resistance.

Caloric restriction (especially carbohydrates) becomes of vital importance in forestalling the development of type 2 diabetes. Exercise is essential in helping the body use up stored energy, converting calories consumed into calories burned. Exercise has the opposite effect of over-eating, increasing the number of insulin receptors in muscle and increasing the sensitivity of the body to insulin thus releasing the pancreas of the burden of constant insulin production. Exercise also results in the release of appetite suppressing hormones and neurotransmitters which help to forestall over-eating.

Carbohydrates generally have an insulin secreting effect on the body because they have a high glycemic rating, relative to proteins and fat. That is to say, carbohydrates cause the blood to become sweeter than protein or fat, which are broken down slowly in the body, independently of insulin. Even so-called "complex carbohydrates" like puffed rice have higher glycemic ratings (110) than white sugar (80), which is itself 50% fructose, and therefore less likely to induce an insulin response than these "whole grains." On the flip side, fructose while having a low glycemic rating, can raise blood sugar on the back end by reducing the affinity of insulin for its receptor contributing to insulin resistance and elevating blood glucose. Fructose also undergoes glycation ("caramelization") much more readily than other carbohydrates, which contributes to much of the morbility and mortality associated with elevated blood sugar.

When it comes to "whole grains," no food category is associated with greater misunderstanding in realm of blood sugar disorders. The perception that "whole grains" are good for our health and should be consumed in plenty is based on the assumption that the millions of years of biological evolution that preceded the advent of the agrarian revolution (circa 10,000 b.c.) are no longer relevant. We spent 300,000 years as archaic homo sapiens in the capacity of hunters, gatherers and foragers, where the consumption of cereal grasses, and especially the seed form of these grasses, would not have occurred with any regularity, if at all, excepting starvation pressures.

Our metabolism is simply not designed for large amounts of starch, sugar, and synthetically produced sweeteners and fats. We need fruits, vegetables, seeds and nuts, and high quality sources of protein in plenty. Evidence exists demonstrating that the glycoproteins in starchy grains known as "lectins," can bind to the leptin receptors in the hypothalamus blocking out the appetite suppressing effects of the hormone leptin. This is one reason why bread, pasta, cereal, crackers, etc. can generate incessant cravings and contribute to a condition known as "leptin resistance." Wheat lectin also has affinity for insulin receptors in the body which could result in both insulin-receptor stimulation based weight gain and/or insulin resistance, and which explains why it is used to get cattle to slaughter weight quicker.

High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) and purified fructose have both been shown to cause insulin resistance in rats and humans. There are, in fact, over 70 other adverse health effects linked to purified fructose consumption. Hydrogenated oils also dramatically reduce the responsiveness of our muscle and fat to insulin, whereas omega 3 fatty acids increase that responsiveness.
