"William Casarella, chairman of the radiology department at Emory University underwent a virtual colonoscopy, a new way to screen for colon cancer using a CT scan instead of a colonoscope, an optical device that's inserted through the rectum and allows doctors to peer inside the colon. Casarella's colon was cancer free on the CT scan, but the image also captured other parts of his abdomen, revealing what looked like tumors on one kidney, a one-inch mass on his liver, and a scattering of lumps on his lungs."

"J) DOCTOR'S NOTE: Regular colon and parasite cleansing can purge tapeworms, their eggs and offspring from your body. See "Parasite Cleansing" in Chapter 12. intestine and can lay up to 1 million eggs a day! The longest tapeworm ever reported (not certified) was measured at an n > -z H -r. ANATOMICAL OVERVIEW: Typical sites within the small and large intestines for Tapeworm infestation. INTERIOR VIEW: Adult organisms steal important nutrients from the host and reproduce in large numbers."

"Strain (BBL) BBL helps maintain a healthy colon and populates the intestines with beneficial bacteria. Latero-Flora™ (a high quality Probiotic containing this strain) has shown incredible effectiveness for easing gastrointestinal symptoms and food sensitivities while also enhancing digestive function. Bacillus is also highly effective for eliminating Candida from the digestive tract. Bacillus coagulans Previously known as Lactobacillus sporogenes, Bacillus coagulans is another very effective Probiotic that helps the body restore the natural balance of micro-organisms in the intestinal tract."

"PREVENTION OF colon CANCER Recent studies suggest that calcium may play a role in the prevention of colon cancer. In an epidemiologic study, there was an inverse association between dietary calcium intake and the risk of developing colon cancer. In other words, the more calcium in the diet, the lower the risk of colon cancer. This effect was more pronounced for men than for women.4 The possible calcium/cancer connection was further supported by observations that calcium supplementation reduced the proliferation of colonic cells, implying a reduction in colon cancer risk."

"How Does Candida Affect My colon? Candida albicans is a yeast fungus that naturally inhabits the body. Ninety percent of the fungus can be found in the mouth and intestinal tract. Sometimes, however, Candida can grow out of control and produce devastating effects on the body."

"Adult pinworms make their home in the colon where they can live for several months. Symptoms of a pinworm infection include anal itchiness, insomnia, and poor appetite. Re-infestation can occur continuously (especially in children) because the eggs are laid around the anus and the resulting itchiness causes the host to scratch and then transfer the eggs back to the mouth if hands are not washed thoroughly and often. Transmission is also possible through contaminated clothing, toilets, bed linens, or other surfaces housing these parasites."

"A very dangerous drug, 5-Fluorouracil (5FU), commonly used in chemotherapy for colon cancer, did not—as purported—reduce mortality. "One can only hope," he wrote, "that the good judgment of the American physician will dissuade him from treating thousands of postoperative colon cancer patients with this toxic drug in the misinformed belief that it will provide them with therapeutic benefit." Two years later, in The New England Journal of Medicine, Moertel still maintained that 5FU had no clinical value."

"Colonic irrigation will help clean out the colon of years of accumulated putrefaction and helps the body function properly. Drinking distilled water, at least in the beginning or for part of the treatment, is also beneficial, along with the use of herbal noncaffeinated teas. Dr. Hodes also recommends that a practitioner of biological dentistry remove, in proper sequence, your silver-mercury dental amalgam fillings. Tom Warren, who wrote Beating Alzheimer's, emphasized the importance of this procedure."

"Meat-based diets have been linked to heart disease, colon cancer, and bladder and rectal cancers. In fact, women who eat red meat once a day have a 250 percent increased chance of getting colon cancer compared with women who eat it less than once a month. Estrogen mimics. Estrogen mimics are chemicals that our bodies perceive to be estrogen, a naturally occurring hormone that governs the development of female characteristics. Estrogen mimics pose a threat to human health because our bodies perceive them to be estrogen, which may disrupt our endocrine system."

"Kellogg, a Seventh-Day Adventist who bore a striking resemblance to KFC's Colonel Sanders, firmly believed promoted both masturbation and the proliferation of toxic bacteria in the colon. During this, the first golden age of American food faddism, protein performed much the same role that fat would perform during the next. At Kellogg's Battle Creek sanitarium, patients (who included John D."

"After an unanticipated colon cancer surgery, Linda initially told her family not to utter a word about it to anyone. Over time, her emotional freedom came from speaking at corporate "lunch-n-learn" programs about the importance of colonoscopies in cancer prevention. • One year after Andy's kidney transplant, he looked for a way to make his life meaningful and inspirational to others. After pushing himself to bike ride across the United States, he made it his passion to provide hope to patients waiting for an organ match by speaking about his expedition."

"The officials of metal are the lung and colon. The lung is the official of "rhythmic order" who sets the pace of our entire system through inhalation and exhalation. This official provides exchange between inner and outer and is where the balance of giving and receiving is found. Associated with air, the lung official receives inspiration from the heavens, refreshing us on all levels and giving us a strong sense of vital essence. The colon is the official of "drainage and dregs" whose job is to clean house."

"Colon cleansing can take the form of regular bowel movements, enemas, which remove waste from the lower third of the colon, or lull colonic cleansing, also known as colonic irrigation or colonic hydrotherapy. Regular Bowel Movements To promote regular bowel movements, follow these recommendations: • Try to move bowels first thing in the morning, either before or after breakfast, whether or not you feel the urge. Allow plenty of time, breathe deeply, and relax. Get your body into the habit of regular elimination. • Eat plenty of raw vegetables and fruits each day. • Chew foods thoroughly."

"Most dietary magnesium is absorbed in the colon or far down in the intestines. Magnesium supplements are available in poorly absorbed forms such as magnesium oxide and magnesium chloride. The poor solubility of these salts diminishes their absorption. Absorption is a little better with magnesium gluconate and magnesium citrate. Amino acid chelates such as magnesium aspartate are better absorbed. Magnesium orotate and magnesium ascorbate are well absorbed and transport of magnesium to the cell is facilitated. Table 10-2 RDAs and adequate intakes (AI) for magnesium for all ages."

"A few years before that, 5-fluorouracil, a highly toxic drug, was widely used for the treatment of colon cancer—even though it was known at the time to be ineffective. What we are saying is that the medicalization of our lives—test this, monitor that, cut this, drug that—has a minimal impact on mortality. As long as medicine focuses on the treatment of illness, rather than on the maintenance of health, the results of its mighty and heroic (and expensive) efforts will be minimal."

"Some of these B vitamins can also be made by friendly bacteria in a healthy colon and absorbed into circulation. Metabolism Catabolism = Breaking down of components Anabolism = Building up of components CATABOLISM AND ANABOLISM The primary role of the B vitamins is catalyzing energy production in the body. One side of metabolism is catabolism. Catabolism is the breaking down of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins, often to produce energy, as shown in Figure 1-1. The other side of metabolism is anabolism."

"More research is needed to determine if enough vitamin B]2 can be absorbed from the colon to be of significant value. Vitamin B|2 is easily lost through leaching into water while cooking. One unusual thing about vitamin Bp is that microwave cooking inactivates it, as shown in Figure 1-23. Cooking in the oven or in soups and stews preserves the most vitamin B]2. Vitamin B12 is destroyed by microwave cooking and leached out by cooking water. VITAMIN B12 IN FOOD o Microwave Cooking o Cooking water Figure 1-23 Some cooking methods reduce vitamin B12 content."

"As a bonus, these same anthocyanins may significantly reduce your risk for colon cancer, the third leading cancer in the United States. But That's Not All, Folks! Besides anthocyanins, cherries have three other compounds in them that are of great interest to the field of natural healing: quercetin, ellagic acid, and perillyl alcohol. Quercetin has been found to be a potent anticancer, as well as a powerful anti-inflammatory, agent (see page 101, allergies and asthma). And in animal research, ellagic acid inhibits the growth of certain tumors."

"There's pretty compelling evidence that using melatonin along with conventional cancer treatment like chemotherapy improves the tumor regression rate in breast, lung, kidney, liver, pancreatic, stomach, and colon cancer. Melatonin plus chemo improved the one-year survival rate by approximately 50 percent compared to chemo alone in one study. Melatonin also seems to help reduce the toxicity of chemotherapy as well as some of the complications from it."

"Additionally, antibiotics may lower the production of biotin because some antibiotics kill bacteria in the colon. Biotin is not known to be toxic. Vitamin B5—Pantothenic Acid, the Center of Energy Pantothenic acid derives its name from the root word pantos, which means "everywhere." It has been found in every living cell including plant and animal tissues as well as in microorganisms. Pantothenic acid was first identified in 1933 when Roger Williams detected it as a growth factor for yeast. It is used in a wide variety of vital body processes."

"In 2005, nearly 300 studies were published on CLA, including studies in which CLA slowed the spread of cancer cells, helped stop bone loss in postmenopausal women, calmed the inflammation of asthma, was linked to lower rates of colon cancer, and boosted immune function," Preuss says. Two more supplements figure into our little combo cure for weight loss: green tea and chromium. Let's look at them one by one."

"One can only hope," he wrote, "that the good judgment of the American physician will dissuade him from treating thousands of postoperative colon cancer patients with this toxic drug in the misinformed belief that it will provide them with therapeutic benefit." Two years later, in The New England Journal of Medicine, Moertel still maintained that 5FU had no clinical value. Yet he called for continued clinical research on the drug, offering this remarkable conclusion: "Patients and their families have a compelling need for a basis of hope."

"Fecal blood exam can detect colon cancer, but also produces significant false positives; recommended yearly exams from age 50 to 75 would produce false positives in half of all patients. Various benign conditions of the prostate also produce false PSA positives, leading to considerable anxiety. The best designed studies, which combine digital examination and PSA, show that routine testing leads to needle biopsies on about 18% of the screened population. False positives are not only a frequent result, but also an expensive one as well."

"Fiber absorbs and holds toxins from chemical pollutants, dead cells, and waste matter in the colon for elimination. Without adequate fiber, complete elimination is almost impossible. Fiber is the broom and sponge of the intestinal tract. It prevents constipation, hemorrhoids, and diverticulitis, and may play a role in controlling weight, regulating blood sugars, and reducing the risk of heart disease and some cancers. Fiber absorbs many times its weight in water, resulting in softer, bulkier stools. When extra fiber is added to the diet, the intake of water should be increased also."

"But if you have ever taken antibiotics or eaten a heavily "white" and "beige" food diet (see pages 66 and 67), you've filled your colon with bacteria and fungi that are sending abnormal chemical messages into your bloodstream 24 hours a day. Really. To repopulate with beneficial bacteria, avoid those foods and take a probiotic that includes several of the normal bacteria such as Lactobacillus acidophilus, L. rhamnosus, L. salvar-ius, and Bifidobacterium bifidum, in a growth-promoting medium like mal-todextrin."

"Is it any wonder that milk consumption in adulthood is correlated with increased rates of breast, prostate, and colon cancer? Increased incidence of atherosclerosis is another association: Remember those breast-fed infants with plaques? That's right, milk. Don't be misled by labels that say words to the effect "Our cows are not treated with bovine growth hormone (or BGH)." All cows' milk contains BGH (another name for IGF) to make calves grow, regardless of whether or not the mothers were injected with that hormone. What else does IGF do?"

"The nerves to the large bowel are part of Energetic Integrator 1, but the rectum, anus, and sigmoid colon are part of the information pathway of Integrator 6. The bronchial membranes are found in Integrator 1, but parts of the bronchial system are also part of Integrator 11. So, you can see that as with meridians in TCM, the Integrators connect many disparate systems, organs, nerves, and other anatomical and biochemical aspects of the body."

"Obviously, something other than mutated genes is causing the cancer in the majority of people with colon cancers. What is causing the vast majority of cancers and other diseases? One clue comes from the National Institutes of Health. On their Human Genome Project website, they report that environmental factors may be the single most important trigger in whether a genetic mutation is expressed or not: "Scientists estimate that each of us carries between 5 and 50 [gene] mutations that carry some risk for disease or disability."

"Allopathic tests had shown a negative result for any physical problems, and no conventional treatments had helped, but after only two days of taking the Stomach Driver, Harry began experiencing a healing reaction, mainly in the area of his intestines and colon. For a few days his stools became especially odorous, and he felt mild stomach pain. His digestive system quickly recovered, and as he continued to take Stomach Driver he noticed he was no longer bloated, which had been a chronic condition throughout his years of CFS, and he no longer had stomach pains."

"Some metabolic diseases and certain types of arthritis also correlate bioenergetically with a misaligned equatorial axis, as do problems of the large bowel, colon, and liver. The Magnetic Polar Axis Earth is cocooned in magnetic fields, which emerge both from the interior of Earth and from cosmic phenomenon throughout the universe. The movement of electrically conductive molten iron in Earth's outer core generates its polar magnetic field, which is so large that it extends far beyond Earth's surface and into space."
