Liquid Nutrient Delivery
“When vitamins are delivered intravenously they reach the blood faster than when taken orally. Many people who receive the infusions report feeling healthy immediately afterward,” said Dr. Robert Graham, an internist at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York. Intravenous medicine provides a method of increasing nutrient absorption so that the body can become healthy enough to heal itself.
The cells need to be healthy enough to have enough energy to bring in the nutrients required for repair, but a sick cell may not be able to do so even if those nutrients are around. In order to have a therapeutic effect, nutrients need to be adequately absorbed and delivered to the cell. When one drinks water full of magnesium, bicarbonate and iodine one receives a basket-full of nutrients, which will reach the cells almost as easily as if they were given intravenously.
Water Medicine changes what is possible in medicine and it forever changes the way we look at fasting because even the strictest water fast is different because now we will be adding magnesium bicarbonate to the water. The world of medicine will hopefully wake up to what the World Health Organization has been saying about having a minimum amount of magnesium in drinking water and of course the same can be said about bicarbonate levels.
There are many forms of fasting or liquid diets of various types, which are thought of as mono-forms of fasting. In the beginning there was the pure water fast. Now we have the fruit fast, the vegetable juice fast, wheatgrass and barley juice fasts, spirulina fasts and the grape and grapefruit fasts. Many years ago I did a brown rice fast for two weeks. All of these different forms of fasting effect strong changes in our bodies and brains. All of these liquid diets generate detoxification—that is, elimination of toxins from the body just as pure water fasts would.
I do recommend everyone do 24 hour water fasts to experience the baseline of fasting but of course to do that with magnesium bicarbonate water. Also it is wonderful to start one’s day drinking one or two 8 oz. glasses of magnesium bicarbonate iodine water. Taking this even further, drinking fluid only till lunch everyday helps the body detox on a consistent basis. Even better is when the first glass of fluids is your now standard magnesium bicarbonate rich water mixed with edible clay.
To reduce our intake down to just water offers a learning experience with self as well as providing a diet that will propel you in the right direction. I like naturopath Walter Last’s lemon juice and spirulina fast, which is a radical but effective treatment for serious diseases including diabetes. Going liquid is a good idea if one has cancer, or going as liquid as possible. What this chapter is about is loading up the liquid with dense nutrients that will act as rocket fuel for the cells.
A liquid fast gives the body the best
opportunity to detoxify and regenerate.
In fact we will now be suggesting that magnesium bicarbonate be added to Dr. Max Gerson’s protocol that already floods the body with nutrients from about 15-20 pounds of organically grown fruits and vegetables daily, mostly from raw carrot, apple and green-leafy vegetables, which are used to make fresh raw juice. These juices are ingested at up to one glass every hour and up to 13 times per day. (We will be publishing a new site for more information on magnesium bicarbonate within the week – future address is magbicarb.com)
Imagine if each of those 13 glasses had three to four hundred milligrams of magnesium bicarbonate. That would be somewhere between four and five grams of magnesium bicarbonate intake and this is rocket fuel medicine!
Even these organically grown fruits and vegetables can be lacking in vital minerals if the soil is deficient in mineral content. If a person is already drinking the best possible quality of water and juicing the best quality fruits and vegetables what could be missing? What are missing would be trace elements that are not in the soil and therefore not in the food we grow on it. While they are high in certain vitamins and other healthy nutrients, fruits and vegetables are, for the most part, low in trace and ultra-trace minerals.
Sick soils mean sick plants, sick animals and sick people.
Physical, mental and moral fitness depends largely upon an
ample supply and a proper proportion of minerals in our foods.
Dr. Charles Northen
Our bodies are made from the elements of the earth and to be optimally well we need all the elements present, the macro, micro, trace and ultra-trace minerals need to be in our body in the correct amounts at all times. As our body uses them to perform any activity at all, we need to replace them on a daily basis. We need to ingest them in the right form that the body can use (digest, absorb and activate on a cellular level), which means in ionic form from living plants, which is the way our body was designed to receive and absorb these nutrients.
Trace minerals play a huge role in human physiology. The significant loss of
these essential trace minerals within the vegetables available to us highlights
the need to supplement with a well-balanced, naturally derived product.
Dr. David Thomas
The most nutrient dense environment on the planet is our oceans and the most nutrient dense foods therefore are sea vegetables. One of the best liquid medicines I have found is Body Balance and I have been drinking it on and off for years. When one is dealing with cancer or any other serious disease it is more than helpful to have a broad array of liquid tools and at least one that provides all the trace minerals necessary for optimal physiological function.
Without minerals, vitamins are useless.
Dr. Linus Pauling
Without aloe don’t work. The body heavily depends on enzyme reactions for the production of many of the living bio-chemicals needed for full health. Enzymes in turn are heavily dependent on minerals and trace elements, as we have seen with the immune system. Minerals are the bedrock of life so supplying in large quantities the macro minerals we need and all the trace minerals at appropriate levels brings large dividends in terms of health and the recovery from cancer and all other diseases.
Body Balance has 9 distinct wild harvested sea vegetables with certified organically grown and processed Aloe Vera (Aloe Barbadensis Millar). Ingesting the most nutrient dense plants as a liquid organic whole food is the fastest way to re-mineralize across the full spectrum of minerals that exists and there are great benefits for everyone to take from the Aloe plant.
Dr. Lawrence G. Plaskett, vice-chair of the Nutritional Council in the U.K. states, “The action of substances in aloe vera does activate and intensify the immune response, and this constitutes one of the fundamental scientifically established actions of aloe upon the body. It is amazing in view of all the positive indications that exist for all the anti-cancer effects of aloe vera that no medical studies have been initiated in human cancer.”
Body Balance has a great taste and that is one of the reasons I have been drinking it. There is something very special that happens though when such nutrients are mixed with Aloe Vera and having such ready-made super nutrition already in liquid form is a boon to all who follow the liquid nutritious path. Body Balance comes in addition to the Rejuvenate formula I have been recommending in my protocol.
Aloe Vera & Cancer
The aloe arborescens protocol for cancer has been around for many years and has been proven to be very effective on advanced cancer patients. The protocol began in Brazil and then it traveled to Europe and is finally to America. The protocol is designed to supercharge the immune system but no matter how it works on cancer, it safely gets rid of cancer cells and floods the body with super nutrients.
A Catholic priest, Father Romano Zago, OFM, developed the official protocol and wrote the book, Cancer Can Be Cured! on the history of the cure and details of its use. The book has a long list of impressive case studies for different kinds of cancer. Father Zago also lists many nutrients in the plant and demonstrates that it is highly non-toxic. It would be very difficult, if not impossible, to overdose on this product!
The U.S. Department of Agriculture has approved aloe for the treatment of soft tissue cancers in animals (1992) as well as feline leukemia; and aloe is approved as an important component in European AIDS therapy where it has a powerful effect on the immune system and complements certain drug therapies.
Aloe has the capacity to augment the antioxidant effects of
certain vitamins such as vitamins E and C. This is due to its
ability to enhance the quality of blood and its ability to carry
essential nutrients and oxygen to the body’s tissues and cells.
Officially recognized studies indicate that aloe may be successfully associated with chemotherapy to increase its efficacy in terms of tumor regression rate and survival time, inducing apoptosis and binding to the tumor cell membrane and activating T cells. Aloe vera has been demonstrated to enhance the immune system’s response to cancer, promote the growth of new and healthy cells, and reduce the overall viral load within the body thereby revitalizing the body in its fight against cancer.
Aloe Vera acts as a curative to burns obtained from radiotherapy treatment for cancer. Internal and external uses of Aloe Vera quicken the healing process and provide immense relief.
Aloe is an anti-inflammatory and may be taken internally as a remedy to ease heartburn, ulcers, diverticular disorders, and other types of digestive upsets. European folk medicine calls for using the juice to relieve heartburn and ulcers.
In the case of this particular protocol item in my Natural Allopathic Medicine I have arranged for private support. Manfred Raunigg has been sending me Body Balance for years and recently in an emergency was generous enough to send Body Balance down here to Brazil to a dear friend of my wife who is battling late stage breast cancer.
It is from a multi-marketing organization and you have not heard so readily from me about this until now because of that. Sometimes we have to make exceptions when we find the best products. I have always promoted in my medical work the things I use for myself and my family, which of course have to be the best at affordable cost. In terms of my personal testimony I am stocking Body Balance and magnesium bicarbonate concentrate at my Sanctuary in the interior of Brazil, not gold.
I suggest a regular person drink one bottle per week, so for one person order a 4 pack (or more depending on the need) on auto ship (that’s 10% discount on regular price and it will come every month unless you change or cancel. It is easy to manage by email or phone.) I mention this because the real purpose and reason I am backing this product from a multilevel organization is that it is wonderful and very serious medicine especially for cancer patients. Instead of consuming one’s entire day making juices via the Gerson method you can drink Body Balance to your heart’s content along with Rejuvenate based smoothies made with magnesium bicarbonate water.
The Grape Juice Fast
The Grape Juice Fast was a famous anti-cancer discovery in the 1920s. Purple (Concord) grapes (with their skin and seeds), and to a slightly lesser degree red and black grapes, contain several nutrients that are known to kill cancer cells. Grapes contain nutrients that kill cancer cells as well as substances that help the body detoxify. This cancer treatment was developed by Johanna Brandt who spent many years experimenting with fasting and diets before she found her grape cure. Her book on the grape cure was published in the 1920s.
Lately I have been experimenting with grape juice (which is already high in magnesium), fortified with magnesium bicarbonate and iodine. Another incredibly delicious nutritional medicine concoction to add to the list of easy to consume super medicines! Even my five year old loves it!
.Note: organic grape juice ranges from 15-40 gm. of carbohydrates per serving, and is considered a high sugar and high calorie drink! In one organic grape juice source they say that there are 70 calories per ounce, and that’s with no sugar added. That is over 500 calories per 8 oz. glass of grape juice and should be taken into account as the carbohydrates and calories can quickly add up.
Drinking high octane liquid nutrition triggers a cleansing process that reaches right down to each and every cell and tissue in the body as organs and glands get a much-needed and well-deserved rest, during which their tissues are purified and rejuvenated and their functions balanced and regulated. Fasting provides a much-needed rest for the internal organs, restoring and normalizing glandular, metabolic and nervous-system functions, speeding up the elimination of morbid accumulations, toxic wastes and dead cells, accelerating new cell and tissue generation and enhancing cell-oxygenation.
Liquid fasting facilitates the body’s healing mechanisms. It is a gift to an overburdened body. It is extremely effective in creating an internal environment where the body can do what it does best—heal itself. Liquid fasting increases the process of elimination and the release of toxins
from the colon, kidneys and bladder, lungs and sinuses, and skin. This process can generate discharge such as mucus from the gastrointestinal tract, respiratory tract, sinuses, or in the urine.
The fast is Nature’s remedy for all diseases and there are few
exceptions to the rule. When you feel sick, fast. Do not wait until
the next day, when you will feel stronger, nor till the next week,
when you are going away into the country, but stop eating at once.
Quick Lesson in Nutrition
Malnutrition is a common development in cancer patients; it’s something they most likely had that led up to the condition of cancer developing, and it is something that worsens as the cancer develops. Reports from the National Cancer Institute indicate that 20-40% of cancer patients die from causes related to malnutrition rather than the cancer itself. According to Dr. Rudolf Breuss, solid foods are what nourish cancer cells. He concluded that if a person with cancer lives on juice and tea for a period of time, the cancer growth will die, but the person will be able to live.
In terms of diet for cancer patients I recommend that liquid medicine be used to the maximum extent tolerable. But it’s not only water that’s needed, even if it is laden with high levels of magnesium bicarbonate. One needs to drink plenty of iodine in one’s water and add some liquid liposomal selenium and a full spread of vitamins.
In one influential study a powerful carcinogen known as DMBA was given to a group of female rats. Then the rats were given none, one of four, two of four, three of four, or all of four nutrients: the minerals selenium and magnesium, and vitamins C and A. When no nutrients were administered, all of the rats developed breast cancer. When one of the nutrients was given, 46.4 to 57.1 percent of the rats developed tumors, depending on the nutrient. When two of the nutrients were given in combination, the tumor incidence decreased to 29.9 to 34.6 percent, depending on which nutrients were used in combination. Administration of nutrients in groups of threes resulted in further reduction of tumor incidences coming down to somewhere between 16 to 23.1 percent. And when all four nutrients were given together, tumor incidence dropped to 12 percent. Human DNA is 99 percent identical to that of rats.
