Nutritional Holistic Cancer Survivor
Cancer IS Curable NOW

Vitamin and Other Supplements

OK, I'm sure your wondering just what else I am doing. As previously mentioned, we have researched and continue to research numerous books, web sites and the counsel of others.  I've recently (02/2019) added easy to follow links to most of the stuff I have used and continue to use. 


A couple of years ago, my wife was waiting for her periodic acupuncture treatment at the Florida College of Integrated Medicine, and sat next to a woman who had cured herself of cancer; just by diet. She consumed numerous apricot seeds containing laetrile each day along with a macrobiotic diet. She is cancer free!  I have been doing the same for several years now.  See my bitter apricot seed link.


Below is an overview of what I often take, in addition to the dietary regime of Vegan/Raw foods and a plant based lifestyle.  We will try other suppliments and if we like them will add them or replace other items in the following list.  As we always recomment: Do You Own Research!

To improve your diet, you need to lower your omega-6 and raise your omega-3. You can do this by changing what you eat. Foods that contain high amounts of omega-6 are soybean oil, cottonseed oil, and corn oil. These oils are key ingredients in margarine, mayonnaise, salad dressings, snack foods, processed foods and fast foods.  Learn to live a Plant Based Lifestyle!


BOOST COGNITION & CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH: Omega-3 fatty acids are pretty awesome - they have been shown to reduce inflammation and may help support cardiovascular health. High concentrations of Omega-3 fatty acids are found in the brain and appear to have a role in memory, cognition and mood. Recent research suggests that Omega-3 fatty acids may even tackle the damaging effects of pollution.


SUSTAINABLY SOURCED ALGAL OIL: Nested Naturals Vegan Omega-3 is proudly made from vegan algal oil. Fish get their DHA and EPA by eating tiny plants floating around in the ocean - marine algae - making fish a sort of Omega-3 middleman. Why not go directly to the plant source? Our marine algae is grown sustainably on a farm, not harvested from the ocean, which allows us to tightly control the purity and quality.


BIOAVAILABLE & POTENT VEGAN OMEGA-3: The algal oil in Vegan Omega-3 includes DHA and EPA naturally. Your body can easily obtain full nutritional benefit without the need for any additional chemical processing. This is not the case with Omega-3 supplements made from flaxseed oil. Flax is full of ALA, which the body can't easily convert to the Omega-3 fatty acids that people most need--DHA and EPA.

Vitamin D

I take 10,000 IU of Vitamin D when I don't get out in the sun.  In the morning I often drink a 'green drink' of fresh green leafy vegetable juice (juiced within a few days), with spirulina, chorella, barley, wheat grass and bee pollen.  This kick starts my nutrient flow for the day and gives me plenty of protein and vitamines to start the day!


Theories linking vitamin D to certain cancers have been tested and confirmed in more than 200 epidemiological studies, and understanding of its physiological basis stems from more than 2,500 laboratory studies, according to epidemiologist Cedric Garland, DrPH, professor of family and preventive medicine at the UC San Diego School of Medicine. Dr. Garland is widely regarded as the leading epidemiologist on vitamin D and its relation to health. He led one of the latest studies on vitamin D for cancer prevention and proposed a new model of cancer development -- dubbed DINOMIT-- that is centered on a loss of cancer cells' ability to stick together. The model is a departure from the older model of cancer development, which centers on genetic mutations as the earliest driving forces behind cancer.


Calcitrol -- the activated form of vitamin D -- has been shown to protect against cancer by inducing cell differentiation and controlling cell proliferation. People with a low vitamin D level are less able to make activated vitamin D in an amount sufficient to exert the controls over cell proliferation that are needed to reduce cancer.

Optimized vitamin D levels will work synergisticly with virtually every other cancer treatment. There are over 830 peer-reviewed scientific studies showing its effectiveness in the treatment of cancer! You'll want to elevate your levels of vitamin D to about 80-90 ng/ml, and continue to have them monitored throughout your treatment.


Calcitrol, the most potent steroid hormone in your body, is produced in large amounts in your tissues when you have sufficient amounts of vitamin D. However, most cancer patients are vitamin D deficient. Keep in mind your physician should run the Vitamin D, 25-Hydroxy test and if you have reached the 80+ ng/ml level he/she may tell you to reduce your intake. Check the test results, the 'acceptable' range is 32.0 to 100.0!~ I just smile and say sure and go right on taking the higher dosage!


Sodium Ascorbate - Vitamin C.


Why sodium ascorbate instead of regular vitamin C tablets? Simple, the vitamin C tablets are highly acidic. The sodium ascorbate which IS vitamin C enters the body in an alkaline form. This helps maintain the acid balance toward the more favorable alkaline levels necessary to combat cancer and other disease!


Sodium ascorbate is a more bio-available form of vitamin C that is an alternative to taking ascorbic acid as a supplement. The molecular formula of this chemical compound is C6H7NaO6. As the  salt of ascorbic acid (vitamin C), it is known as a mineral ascorbate.


Sodium ascorbate can reverse the development of atherosclerotic disease, helps in heart attack prevention.[2]In addition sodium ascorbate plays a significant role in the elimination of chronic and acute infections.[3] Moreover, it is considered to be an anti-cancer agent. Sodium ascorbate produces cytotoxic effect in an array of malignant cell lines, which include melanomacells that are particularly susceptible.


Peridocally (about once a month or so), I take two heaping teaspoons on a morning when I don't have appointments early in some juice (orange or grapefruit). This is about 5000mg of Vitamin C. Now this high a dose may cause you to have a form of diarrhea, but it will really clean you out! I usually have three bowel movements before 9am and maybe a couple of more of very liquid ones after that, then I'm find for the rest of the day. It actually makes you feel so clean inside it is wonderful; but may not be for everyone.

Palladium Lipoic Complex - Poly-MVA

Poly-MVA is a uniquely formulated combination of minerals, vitamins and amino acids designed to support cellular energy production and promote overall health. Poly-MVA also replaces specific nutrients that may be depleted during certain therapies.


A patented dietary supplement with over 15 years of clinical laboratory research and testing, Poly-MVA is a revolutionary product and the first in a remarkable new category of supplement called lipoic acid palladium complexes (LAPd).


I used to take two teaspoons (in juice) four times a day. I started at 4pm and finish at 10pm. In addition, I took four 100mg gelcap of Co-enzyme Q10 or CoQ10 which is a recommended accompaniment. Due to interaction with high doses of other anti-oxidants, a six hour separation was recommended. The folks at the Poly site are extremely helpful and informative. You can call anytime for information or dosage instructions! Check out this site.


I stopped taking the Polly (August 2013) due to the expense.  I may again restart this program if my PSA rises too much.  In the meantime, I'm just sticking to my Plant Based Lifestyle approach!  Just a notation, as I was adding this link, I saw that the Amazon price is SO much less expensive so I'd suggest you give this a try!!


Poly-MVA Dietary Supplement 8 fl

Uniquely formulated combination of minerals, vitamins and amino acids

A patented dietary supplement with over 15 years of clinical laboratory research and testing

Provides considerable nutritional support

Helping to enable optimum functioning of essential body systems

Replacing nutrients that are lost during chemotherapeutic and radiological treatments


Poly-MVA is the first product to come out of the new field of electrogenetics, which studies and describes the energy requirements, energy exchanges, and electrical communication that allow DNA signaling and communication in our cells. While an in-depth explanation involves interactions that bridge the fields of chemistry, physics and biology, the mechanism of Poly-MVA can also be explained in more common physiological terms.


Poly-MVA maintains and enhances the function of mitochondria, the main source of energy within cells. In healthy cells using aerobic respiration, Poly-MVA not only protects these cells from damage but enhances their function and action. The clinical effects of Poly-MVA have been proven in laboratory studies, with countless patients as well as in doctor's clinics and hospitals nationwide.


Chlorella and Spirulina


OK, you may not have heard of these before. I know I hadn't! Basically these are considered 'Super Foods' and I first heard of them watching the video on the Gerson Miracle (more on videos and such in an other section).


Chlorella is a tiny, single-celled water-grown alga containing a nucleus and an enormous amount of readily available chlorophyll. It also contains protein (approximately 58 percent), carbohydrates, all of the B vitamins, vitamins C and E, amino acids, and rare trace minerals. In fact, it is virtually a complete food. It contains more vitamin B12 than liver does, plus a considerable amount of beta-carotene.

- A-to-Z Guide To Supplements, James F. Balch M.D.


Spirulina is a microscopic blue-green alga in the shape of a spiral coil, living both in sea and fresh water. Spirulina is the common name for human and animal food supplements produced primarily from two species of cyanobacteria: Arthrospira platensis, and Arthrospira maxima


Spirulina's predigested protein provides building material soon after ingestion, without the energy-draining side effects of meat protein; its mucopolysaccharides relax and strengthen connective tissue while reducing the possibility of inflammation; its simple carbohydrates yield immediate yet sustained energy; its GLA fatty acids improve hormonal balance; and its protein-bonded vitamins and minerals, as found in all whole foods, assimilate better than the synthetic variety. Spirulina can generally be considered an appropriate food for those who exercise vigorously, as evidenced by the many world-class athletes who use it

- Healing With Whole Foods by Paul Pitchford


Note: If you noticed we have changed from taking separate chorella and the Barly Max.  We found that Green Vibrance has much more and at a drastically lower price.  It contains chorella as well as barley and a host of other nutrients, vitamines, minerals, etc. etc.

Kai Kit Wan - Chinese Herb Mixture for Prostate Gland Supplement

This Chinese herbal supplement is a combination of various herbs designed by Chinese medical practitioners. It was first suggested to me by my acupuncturist at the Florida College of Integrative Medicine. I have since found a less expensive supply at a local Chinese Herb Shop manufactured by Guangzhou Zhongyl Pharmaceutical Company Ltd. These supplements are to aid in prostate health, help reduce swelling and assist in urination. If it is any indication, my blood work (11/17/2011) indicated a perfect kidney function.


I've also stopped taking this herb mixture.  I think it really helped stabalize my prostate in the early days but with proper diet and increased exercise, I don't feel the need for this.  Try it to see if it helps you.

Kai Kit Pill - Herbal Supplement-54pills


This supplement contains high-quality astragalus root, which is believed to support a man’s body in staying young and vital. Astragulus root is also thought to have strong properties, which can be helpful in upper respiratory system function. Ancient Chinese herbalists used astragalus root to help with the male urogenital system.

My lovely wife, who constantly researches everything, found this new 'all organic' product from the UK that has recently been tested on Prostate Cancer patients with suprisingly good results. (see the web site).  I ordered a three month supply and it arrived in about 2-weeks (Late October 2013).  I've started to take it daily (recommended dosage) and will see what happens.  Pretty simple ingredients and we already eat a lot of brocolli and other cruciferous vegetables and use tumeric a lot.  Pomigrantis, not very often.  Since I just started to take it, I'll hold off on recommending it for now.


** Update ** 3/15/2014

Well, I took the Pomi-T for three months and frankly didn't see any difference in much of anything.  I think that if you are not already vegan there may be some benefit to a suppliment like this but I eat so many vegetables, fruits and some nuts/seeds I guess this didn't do much for my already nutritions intake.  I still beleive that a totally Plant Based Lifestyle is the BEST way to combate cancer and any other disease!
