Cancer Prevention, Yes You Can

CANCER PREVENTION, YES YOU CAN

                Let us start by reviewing some of the basics.  Cancer begins at the cellular level.  There is typically a genetic mutation or alteration in genes which if it is allowed to persist will create an abnormal cell and then multiple abnormal cells and then a cancer.  Under normal circumstances, this happens to all of us every day but the immune system is able to identify this abnormal cell and destroy it before it becomes a conglomerate of cells, i.e., a tumor.  The key then to preventing cancer is preventing an abnormal cell becoming multiple abnormal cells.  An important question to ask then would be what contributes to the cell genetic material becoming mutant, or to mutate?  Another obvious important question to ask would be what can be done to enhance the destroying of the mutant cells, the abnormal cells?  Intravenous Vitamin C to the rescue.

                Over the decades, numerous scientific studies and articles have highlighted the ability of Vitamin C to be active against cancer.  An article appearing in Free Radical Biology in Medicine in 2009 entitled “Pharmacologic Concentrations of Ascorbic Acid by Parenteral Administration Exhibit Antitumoral Effects” is one example.  Another article appeared in the British Journal of Cancer in 2001 titled “Cytotoxicity of Ascorbate, Lipoic Acid and Other Antioxidants and Hollow Fiber In Vitro Tumors.”  More recently an article appeared in WebMD April 3, 2017, “IV Vitamin C Boosts Chemo’s Cancer-Fighting Power.”  An article entitled “Mainstream Researchers Finally Admit Vitamin C Kills Cancer” appeared in the NaturalNews.com.

 We have been using infusions of Vitamin C for decades with sometimes dramatic results.  So far we have been talking about treating diagnosed cancer.  How does this relate to prevention?  Back to the cells.  The beginning of cancer is an abnormal “genetically mutant” cell.  If it is allowed to reproduce, it eventually creates cancer.  If intravenous Vitamin C is helpful in treating cancer which has millions of cancer cells, would not intravenous Vitamin C be potentially very helpful in handling a few abnormal cells before they become tumors?  In other words, utilizing an infusion of Vitamin C periodically would seem to be a very important part of a cancer prevention protocol.  Kill off a few cancerous cells before they become many.  Important note:  The amount of Vitamin C necessary to achieve this is much greater than is obtainable through oral Vitamin C.  Therefore, the infusion route is necessary.  Certainly taking some Vitamin C orally in addition is okay and helpful but it is not adequate enough to be effective for killing cancer cells. 

                Now let’s go a step further.  Another important question to ask would be “What things can contribute to causing the genetic mutations occurring in the first place?”  This research and observations have also been done over the decades identifying hundreds if not thousands of various toxic chemicals, toxic metal exposures that contribute to these genetic perturbations that result in cancer cell production.  In addition, the majority of the body’s immune system which is designed to protect us against abnormal cell production is located in the intestinal tract so ideal intestinal tract function is of critical importance in the prevention of cancer.  Diagnostics to identify the presence of toxic substances, i.e., various classes of chemicals, insecticides, pesticides, herbicides, solvents, etc., and toxic metals can be identified and most importantly therapeutic modalities to decrease those exposures are also available. 

                If you have a family history of cancer or if you are just concerned about cancer for yourself for various reasons, you have been exposed to things in the past, whatever the cause or causes of your concern, something can be done about it!  The age-old adage “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” is definitely valid when it comes to cancer. 

                In addition to the above, having an ongoing input of good quality nutrients is essential to maintain an ongoing cellular energy level.  There is a class of compounds called nitrilosides found in hundreds of edible plants world-wide that has shown to be helpful in cancer prevention.  These compounds can be in:  lima beans, apple seeds, apricot, plum and peach pits, bitter almonds, nuts, millet, maize and sorghum.  Combine the avoidance of toxins and the ingestion of organic, clean food and food items high in cancer fighting compounds and you will be well on your way to a life free from cancer.  Why stop there?  Seek the advice of physicians who are familiar with all of the above and you can be well on your way toward preventing cancer and at the same time improving the quality of life for your future.

From The Desk Of Coleen Maulfair

Dr Maulfair and I are very excited to be able to bring Mr. Hubbard's practical detoxification program to our friends and patients. You can read about it on the internet at DetoxAcademy.org. This is the program that has helped so many in this country and across the world including the victims of the Chernobyl disaster in Russia. If you check out your local bookstore you will find a book called "Clear Body Clear Mind" by Mr Hubbard. Dr Maulfair is acutely aware of the toxins harming most people's health and barring the full recovery of their vitality. Utilizing this detoxification program we can help people eliminate most toxins stored in body fat. You will hear a great deal about this in the months to come. Stay tuned.

CHELATION SUCCESS — from Dr Maulfair

I want to give you a history of one of our chelation patients and his studies as he progressed through a chelation program with us. Our patient had an emergency bypass surgery in 1986 following a failed angioplasty. In 1997 he developed symptoms and another angioplasty was done of the previously bypassed arteries that had blocked again and another bypass surgery. The patient was frustrated due to all the surgery as he did not drink or smoke, his cholesterol levels were good and he ate well and exercised. One of the functions routinely looked at is ejection fraction which is the measure of how effectively the heart is pumping blood, the ideal range is around 50-55% depending on the technology used to measure it. This patient had an ejection fraction of 60-70% the end of 1997 after the second bypass surgery. He was hospitalized twice in January of 1998 with chest pain and unstable angina, drug therapy was the only recommendation. He had a catheterization done in January of 1998 with an ejection fraction of 53% and evidence of damage to the heart and decreased circulation.

The patient started a chelation program with us February of 1998. He continued to see his cardiologist and a stress test in January of 1999 revealed his ejection fraction to be 60% with no longer any evidence of damage to the heart and there was less evidence of decreased circulation. Another stress test in January of 2000 revealed the ejection fraction to have increased to 66% and no evidence of heart damage and NO evidence of decreased circulation. A repeat stress test in January of 2001 showed the ejection fraction at 62% (in average range) and again no evidence of decreased circulation or heart damage. Another stress test in January of 2002 revealed his ejection fraction increased to 72%, the highest it has been in five years and again no evidence of decrease circulation or heart damage. He continues on his chelation program. How is that for evidence of effectiveness. His cardiologist is supportive of his chelation program.

All Chelation Is Not The Same

If at some time during your life you have expressed some interest in health, nutrients, good eating or other natural pursuits, you are no doubt on at least one and probably multiple mailing lists from various "natural health-oriented" publications selling products. You may well also subscribe to at least one or more health newsletters. From some of these sources, you have most likely been exposed to various promotions touting oral chelation therapy. The typical promotion refers to improvements in various symptoms of chronic degenerative diseases. The promotion goes on to say something about the results of an intravenous chelation therapy program can be obtained by taking oral chelating agents. The promotion cleverly states that it will take longer with the oral chelating agent than with the real chelation therapy program.

Chelation as defined in the Dorland's Medical Dictionary is "combination with a metal in complexes in which the metal is part of a ring". The definition of chelate includes "chelates are used in chemotherapeutic treatments for metal poisoning". The medical profession, in general, and the area of toxicology more particularly, view and treat toxins and toxic reactions from the acute viewpoint. Chronic long-term toxic exposure is not popularly viewed, diagnosed or treated. 8 of 10 Americans die from cardiovascular disease (heart attacks or strokes) and/or cancer. These have been clearly associated with chronic toxic metal exposures. The good news is that this wonderful body we live in has the potential of chelating or ridding itself of toxic metals to some degree. Problems arise when the total load of the toxic metal exposure exceeds the body's ability to rid itself of them on an ongoing basis. Metals then become entrapped in various tissues in the body and their presence leads to chronic degenerative disease development, as well as speeding the aging process.

Chronic degenerative disease development and the aging process are also impacted upon by metastatic calcium. Metastatic calcium is calcium that is deposited in soft tissue where it is not supposed to be, such as in arteries, tendons and ligaments. Calcium's presence in soft tissues contributes to stiffening and hardening. Iron and copper, and calcium are essential for normal function in the human body but can also contribute to damage and contribute to chronic degenerative disease development, as well as the aging process. While natural oral chelating agents can have an impact to some degree on toxic metal excretion, they do not have an effect on calcium and iron and copper, and handling these minerals along with the toxic metals is essential for the restoration of the quality and quantity of life and the retardation of chronic degenerative disease development and the aging process.

Real chelation therapy (properly prescribed comprehensive chelation therapy program) has been helping hundreds of thousands of people in this country and around the world over 50 years. We know from observation what the intravenous chelation treatment plus the rest of the properly prescribed comprehensive program can do. When any single oral chelation product can duplicate this 50-year history with the thousands of references that have been developed over that 50-year period, then we will talk. In the meantime, I am going to continue my own chelation therapy program and continue to prescribe it to others. As an aside, I might mention that a recently developed carotid artery ultrasound protocol, which uses a patented computer program to evaluate the inner most lining of the artery, that I had done last spring showed that while my chronological age at the time was 68, my arterial age was 42. I have been on a preventive chelation therapy program for about 25 years.

Iodine, The Forgotten Element
Iodine is an essential element. Any element that the body cannot produce but has to be introduced into the body from the outside is essential. We are totally reliant on eating or drinking it. Iodine's main function is in the production of thyroid hormones, which are in turn essential for cellular energy production. Without iodine, the thyroid hormones will not function. Hypothyroid (below-average function of the thyroid) results in numerous symptoms and life quality issues, including virtually every cell and tissue and organ system.

Additionally, there has been evidence of insufficient levels of iodine and the presence of fibrocystic breast disease, as well as ovarian and uterine cancer.

A study published in Physiological Reviews in 1943 spoke about the use of iodine to inhibit the development of atherosclerosis in rabbits fed cholesterol. Another fascinating observation in the experiment was that the lipid (fat levels) in the blood were elevated, but in spite of that, the atherosclerotic process was impeded by the addition of iodine. A previous study published in 1935 demonstrated the same findings.

In the early 1960's potassium iodate was used as a dough conditioner in the making of bread and as a result, many people had improved or adequate iodine stores. Late in the 1970's into 1980's, bakers replaced the iodine with bromate as a dough condition. Both elements are halogens. Bromide unfortunately causes goiters and is carcinogenic. The Japanese consume at least 100 times the USA RDA for iodine. Inorganic iodine is safe and effective. The organic iodine that is used in drugs and X-ray dyes is not.

There is a simple way to determine whether you have an iodine insufficiency. It involves taking four specially prepared iodine tablets and then a laboratory specializes in the procedure measures the amount of iodine, and the iodine insufficiency that is identified can be easily remedied by taking a special iodine preparation orally.

**************EXTRA EXTRA**************

Dr. Maulfair has not retired. For several years pronouncements of my retirement have filtered to us. I can categorically state that not only have I not retired, but I am more active than ever and continue to expand and plan to do so well into the future. My father practiced to age 87. My goal is to surpass that, so you will be seeing me for a long time.

Hints on Choosing a Doctor
There is a wildly held believe in society primarily I guess based on observations of people within the society, that as you get older, life quality decreases, chronic degenerative diseases occur, arthritis, hardening of the arteries, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart attacks, strokes, cancer, and that is natural. The notion that aging is synonymous with loss of life quality is specious. There are areas in the world where people live to well in their 80's, 90's and beyond with health. Health is a normal state, disease is the aberrated state.

Physicians are trained to diagnose and treat disease. As a consequence, we do not have a healthcare system in this country. We have a disease care system. If your ideal scene is to live a long, healthy life, then waiting until you have symptoms of chronic degenerative disease and advanced aging and then hoping standard medical philosophy with total reliance on drugs and surgery to correct the loss of health is going to be ineffective and will probably hasten the loss of health. If you have been told or know of others who have been told by a number of the medical profession that "after all you are getting older", some way explains the occurrence of the symptoms and the loss of health and it is to be expected. In other words, if the physicians that you consult have a basic disease-oriented approach and believe that it is normal to lose life quality as you age, then you should be prepared to accept loss of life quality as you age as a result of that medical viewpoint. You need to know, however, that you can change your mind at any time about anything. If you decide that getting older does not have to be consistent with illness and loss of life quality, then you need to seek a physician who shares that viewpoint with you. The bottom line is your life quality can be high right up until you die at an old age. If you do not see that as your future, you need to make some changes now.

Social Diseases
Years ago, the term "social disease" was used to refer to usually sexually transmitted venereal diseases. It was also used to refer to other diseases that are related to social or economic factors, such as tuberculosis. That definition does appear in Webster's Dictionary, but "social disease" does not appear in the Dorland's Medical Dictionary that I looked at. I suggest that the term "social disease" be reinstituted in medical dictionaries and that the term should include coronary artery disease, diabetes, cerebrovascular disease, arthritis and peripheral vascular disease. These diseases have become so prevalent in our society that they are social diseases. I guess the standard medical profession's inept handling of these diseases, their prevalence, prevention and treatment would not allow them to admit that the frequency does indeed categorize them as social diseases. This is not a healthy country. We are not healthy people. All it requires is that you change your mind, become educated, ask questions, do not accept something just because it is popular, learn about what you can do to control your future health. Do not wait until your health is gone to try to reclaim it. You have got to maintain it. Disease does not start and as a result you lose your health. Health begins to disappear long before disease becomes evident. Treating disease does not restore health, it just treats disease. Restore and maintain health and there is no room for disease. The two cannot occupy the same space at the same time.

Alternative, Integrative, Holistic, Complementary vs Orthodox Medicine: History Repeats

Webster defines orthodox as “adhering to what is commonly accepted, customary, or traditional.” Today, 36 U.S. teaching hospitals are pushing the orthodox envelope to blend complimentary medicine with traditional care. No longer treated like unwanted relatives, this is the largest growing area of medicine. Hundreds of thousands of scientific studies are published annually, with millions of people receiving such treatments for back and neck pain, common colds, anxiety, depression and even cancer.

Therapies are termed Complementary when used in addition to “conventional” treatments and Alternative when used instead of “conventional” treatment. If that isn’t sufficiently unclear, either category may include nutritional, holistic, naturopathic, chiropractic, acupuncture, herbal and other forms of medicine. Commonly labeled “unconventional” or “unorthodox” by the conservative mainstream, are these approaches valid?

“Instead of wholesome foods and natural supplements, we have only drug studies paid for by the drug companies. Big pharma spends tens of thousands of dollars per doctor and $1.8 billion on public advertising to ensure their market is maintained.” answers Conrad Maulfair, DO at a recent Integrated Medicine conference. “Opinion and economic interests have fashioned what is considered acceptable medical practice.”

And so history repeats. Consider Claudius Galen, a Greek doctor who lived in the second century AD, Galen spent his lifetime in observation of the human body and its functioning. He performed extensive research and dissections to better understand the functions of the body. After he died, serious anatomical and physiological research ground to a halt. Orthodox medicine believed that everything there was to be said on the subject had been said. Although very enlightened for his time, Galen made certain serious mistakes – mistaken ideas which medical experts upheld centuries.

For nearly 1400 years, orthodox medical experts followed Galen’s teachings that “the tides of the blood” sloshed back and forth through the body, passing through the heart, where it was mixed with air, by pores in the septum. The lungs were responsible for moving the blood around the body. In 1628 William Harvey, an English doctor and researcher, published his findings that the heart, not the lungs, circulated the blood through a closed system of veins and arteries. His research notes first show this finding as early as 1615. Although a respected member of the Royal Medical Academy, Harvey waited 13 years, until 1628, to publish his findings. He closes his findings with the statement “Farewell, most worthy Doctors, and think kindly of your Anatomist.” His findings were never accepted during his lifetime, rather he was broadly attacked.

Why on Earth did the Galenic model last almost 1,400 years? It was obviously baseless. Many anatomists, including the great Leonardo da Vinci, Andreas Vesalius a respected Belgian anatomist, and others had failed to find holes in the intraventricular septum for well over 200 years before Harvey. In fact, it seems certain that these were never even found by Galen; these “anomalies,” however, did not seem to trouble the faithful! No one dared challenge popular opinion.

One important school of thought has withstood centuries of research. Considered the Father of Medicine, Hippocrates of Cos II made lasting contributions. The Hippocratic school held that all illness was the result of an imbalance in the body. When the four humours, blood, black bile, yellow bile and phlegm, were not in balance, a person would become sick and remain that way until the balance was somehow restored. Hippocrates or his students hold the earliest recorded use of vitamin C (citrus) to address the common cold.

Today, an integrated, holistic approach to healing recognizes that the emotional, mental, spiritual and physical elements of each person comprise a system. Working with this systems approach, Dr. Maulfair treats the cause of an illness rather than just the symptoms. Services at Maulfair Medical Center focus on integrating complimentary and alternative medical approaches, rather than drug-oriented medicine with its emphasis on pharmaceutical drugs. Clients of Maulfair Medical Center’s comprehensive programs regain their quality of life by restoring their health balance.
