A Cancer Fighting Bloody Mary Recipe


By Tony Isaacs

Most of us know that there are a number of foods which are powerful cancer fighters and immune boosters, such as red beets, cruciferous vegetables, garlic, etc. Likewise, most of us have heard about the value of juicing in both cleansing the body of toxins as well as providing valuable nutrition for a healthy body.

With this “Bloody Mary” recipe, you get the best of both worlds… a potent and tasty juiced drink which contains some of the most potent cancer fighters on the planet. And if you are a fan of Bloody Mary drinks (albeit non-alcoholic), all the better.

Juiced “Bloody Mary” Ingredients:

Here is a look at the ingredients in this ultra-healthy and delicious juiced drink:

Red Beets – Beets help protect against cancer, particularly colon cancer. There is also something called “Beet Therapy” which doctors have used to get rid of tumors and to help with blood diseases and leukemia. Beets are also rich in betaine, which stimulates liver cell function and helps keep the bile ducts healthy and flowing so that the body can properly eliminate toxins.

Carrots – Carrots and carrot juice have been widely used to successfully beat cancer, sometimes as a standalone treatment. Among the many healthy compounds found in this root vegetable are polyacetylenes, which studies have found to be beneficial against inflammation and cancer.

Tomatoes – In addition to providing the tomato juice that gives the characteristic red color to Bloody Mary drinks, tomatoes help guard the DNA in your cells from damage that can lead to cancer. Tomatoes contain a particularly high concentration of the antioxidant called lycopene.

Baby Spinach – Spinach is one of the healthiest dark green leafy vegetables. It contains a large number of valuable vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients. Spinach is especially rich in folic acid. Folic acid helps maintain the cell’s genetic code and regulate normal cell division.

Broccoli – Broccoli is a cruciferous vegetable − a group of vegetables that are among the most powerful cancer fighting foods to be found. Cruciferous vegetables are high in fiber, vitamins, minerals, and important antioxidants such as beta carotene and sulforaphane compounds. Cruciferous vegetables contain isothiocyanates. These are phytochemicals which help break down potential carcinogens. They also contain indole-3-carbinol (I3C), which help prevent estrogen-driven cancers.

Wheatgrass – Wheatgrass is one of the most potent superfoods on the planet and is used as a primary component of some alternative cancer treatments. Primary among its many cancer-fighting ingredients is chlorophyll, which has almost the same molecular structure as hemoglobin. Chlorophyll also contains the noted cancer-fighters selenium and laetrile.

Celery – Celery is a powerfully healthy vegetable that is most noted for helping regulate blood pressure. It is also a powerful cancer fighter and it contains apigenin and luteolin, compounds which are bioactive flavonoids that fight cancer cells.

Garlic (2-3 cloves) – Garlic, as well as onions, leeks, and chives, have immune-enhancing allium compounds. These compounds increase immune cell activity, help break down cancer causing substances, and block carcinogens from entering cells. Studies have linked garlic to lowering the risk of stomach and colon cancer. Diallyl sulfide, a compound found in garlic oil, has also been shown to incapacitate carcinogens in the liver.

Cayenne (as much as you can comfortably drink) – Hot peppers such as cayenne (chili peppers) and jalapenos contain capsaicin − a chemical which fights cancer and helps neutralize certain cancer-causing nitrosamines. Hot peppers are especially valuable for helping prevent stomach cancers.

Whole Lemon – Lemons are widely used in anti-cancer diets and treatments. Studies have found that lemon extract can successfully destroy malignant cells in a wide range of cancers, including breast cancer, colon cancer, and lung cancer.

Turmeric Root (or powdered turmeric if you can’t find turmeric root) – Turmeric is a popular kitchen spice whose main ingredient is curcumin. Curcumin has become a rising star against cancer in recent years. Its powers have been detailed in a whopping 8963 studies and papers in PubMed, the U.S. national library of medicine.

Tip: Choose organic and fresh, locally grown ingredients as much as possible for the healthiest recipe. Also, wash all fruits and vegetables well before cutting or adding to the recipe.

Directions for Making a Juiced “Bloody Mary”

1. Use a more or less equal amount of the above ingredients, except for perhaps using a few extra tomatoes, using only a few cloves of garlic, and using only as much cayenne pepper as you can tolerate.

2. Juice the above ingredients in a quality low-RPM juicer such as the Omega Vert 350HD used by this author. Note that high RPM juicers oxidize the ingredients and greatly reduce the juice’s health benefits.

3. Add fresh ground black pepper, turmeric powder (if you cannot find turmeric root to juice), and Himalayan salt to taste after making the juice. Then, plop in a celery stalk and perhaps a couple of green olives and enjoy!

Recipe Tips & Notes on Juicing

As a cancer preventive, enjoy a couple of glasses several times a week. As a cancer fighter and detoxer, drink 6 or more tall glasses per day for at least a week with no other food consumed. After that, continue drinking several glasses a day along with a healthy diet and other cancer-fighting supplements thereafter.
For a sweeter morning version, substitute apples for the tomatoes and also add ginger.

The key to getting the maximum benefit from juiced drinks is to consume them while the plant enzymes are still “live.” Thus it is best to only make as much as you will be able to drink within a couple of days instead of making large batches that may take days to consume.


How to Use Essential Oil Massage for Cancer Healing

By Ty Bollinger

Since before the time of record keeping, essential oils have been used to support the body, mind, and spirit. Many ancient civilizations, including the Egyptians, Romans, Greeks and Chinese highly prized essential oils, and valued them as sources of healing to include in their traditions of medicine.

These days the many beneficial properties of essential oils are best realized when utilized as an adjunct or supplement to other treatments for inflammation, and those that help heal from or prevent disease. Use essential oils in combination with a diet of healthy, real, natural foods that are chemical-, pesticide-, antibiotic-, and hormone-free.

The Dangers of Inflammation

One of the ways your body responds to stress is by creating inflammation, regardless to whether this is stress from your environment, lifestyle, or diet. The result will be an inflamed or heated area.

For example, catching a cold you are likely to incur a fever, which is a type of inflammation that your body uses to eradicate an invading virus. Of course, this is a beneficial and acute kind of inflammation. However, there is a modern-day epidemic that is destroying the balance of your body – chronic, low-grade inflammation.

You become more susceptible to disease and aging when your body is confronted with constant inflammatory response. Slowly, but surely, environmental and dietary toxins build up in your body, activating your immune system, keeping it on high alert, and hyper-reactive, all in a state of inflammation. Stress, chronic food allergies or sensitivities, and leaky gut are also sources of inflammation.

Healing Touch & Essential Oils

Many essential oils have anti-inflammatory properties: frankincense, myrrh, peppermint, lavender, turmeric, and clove oils, just to name a few. Combining these oils gives you extra power to fight the dreaded inflammation that is so prevalent in bodies at risk of, or dealing with cancer.

A wonderful way to get the powerful benefits of these or any essential oil is through the healing touch of massage. Using touch in healing is a practice derived from techniques and customs that are as rooted in human history as essential oils. Originally massage was a sacred system of natural healing. Over extensive periods in history, cultural shifts have perverted this ancient art so it’s viewed as merely an indulgence, rather than the beneficial supplement to healing that it is.

Luckily, today, there has been a resurgence in the understanding of this form of holistic therapy. Nowadays it’s well-accepted that massage has the ability to reduce pain, improve lymphatic flow, enhance immune function, increase alertness, and ease depression, among other benefits.

As you probably know, there are many different types of massage. Modern therapists practice various techniques that come from traditions that span back across time and geography. The goal remains the same – assist others to experience a higher quality of life, and improve their emotional and physical well-being.

Research dedicated to proving the benefits of massage therapy continue to grow. All of these benefits can aid in healing from cancer, as well as to help stop it from gaining a foothold in the first place.

Studies show that massage can:

•Help fight depression – In 2010 researchers reviewed the effects massage therapy has on symptoms of depression by carrying out a meta-analysis of 17 studies with a combined 786 participants. Each of the studies demonstrated the positive effects of touch massage on depression, when compared to those in the control groups.

Reduce stress – Sports Medicine published a review stating the positive effects of touch massage on muscle soreness and recovering after injury or physical exertion.

Offer pain relief – In 2014, meta-analyses revealed that massage therapy reduced pain, anxiety, and depression in 404 patients with fibromyalgia who received at least five weeks of massage therapy.

•Promote hormone balance – Studies indicate massage can decrease adrenocorticotropin hormone, nitric oxide, and beta-endorphin levels while increasing levels of oxytocin.

Lessen inflammation – In 2012, a study examined the results of touch massage on young males with damage to their muscles. It was observed that massage mitigated cellular stress, and decreased the expression of cellular stress.
Essential Oils + Massage = Greater Healing

Using essential oils in combination with massage can enhance the benefits, greatly. The proven benefits of massage coupled with the myriad of therapeutic components of essential oils create a powerful combination of restorative therapy, for a wide variety of conditions and health challenges.

While there is an abundance of massage therapists, not all use essential oils in their practice. Ensure you ask before booking a massage session. Do also ensure the oils they use are 100% pure and certified organic.


The Best Essential Oils for Cancer Healing

We’ve written extensively on The Truth About Cancer about the healing benefits of a wide range of essential oils. Here is a brief recap of my top five favorite cancer-fighting oils:


Frankincense is anti-inflammatory, and helps boost immune function. It improves circulation, reduces stress, and is a recognized pain reliever. It has demonstrated the ability to speed regeneration by contracting and toning tissues. In addition, essential oil of frankincense provides neurological support.

Beyond cancer treatment this essential oil has other benefits, including: encouraging skin health, aiding digestion, easing arthritis pain, and balancing hormones.


Lavender is excellent for its ability to calm the nervous system and ease stress and anxiety. It also helps improve the quality and depth of sleep.

Lavender has long been used for pain relief, and in recent years has been studied extensively for its inhibitory effects on cancer tumor growth. Other uses for lavender essential oil include its ability to heals burn and skin irritations, relieve allergy symptoms, and as an anti-bacterial, antiseptic, and antifungal.


In cancer support, myrrh essential oil contains anti-inflammatory properties and in research studies is indicated in the inhibition of cancer cell growth. It is reported to support healthy hormone balance, be an effective pain reliever, and is also anti-fungal.


Peppermint essential oil has antioxidant properties and is a potent anti-inflammatory. Peppermint also stimulates cell regeneration, promotes new tissue growth and liquefies mucous, making it ideal for respiratory issues. It is also one of the best essential oils for aching muscles.

If suffering from nausea, try inhaling or diffusing peppermint essential oil. Peppermint is also one of the best oils for stomach upset by helping to reduce gas and improve digestion.

Turmeric (Curcumin)

Turmeric oil is very promising in cancer treatment regimes. This is due to components observed to inhibit enzymes that can lead to inflammation, suppress tumors, kill fuel and oxygen sources for cancer cells, stop cancer stem cells from returning, and preventing metastasis.

Turmeric essential oil has been shown to promote apoptosis (cancer cell death), yet has the ability to differentiate between normal and cancerous cells. Turmeric is a renowned anti-inflammatory, with thousands of research studies to date demonstrating its myriad of benefits.

Outside of cancer healing benefits, turmeric essential oil can also offer assistance in: helping wounds to heal, preventing Alzheimer’s, regulating blood sugar, weight loss, and relief from arthritis.

Note of caution: While using essential oils can enhance your life and health in a variety of ways, they are not cure-alls. Those dealing with a serious disease should use these therapeutic supplements as part of a supervised treatment plan.essential-oil-benefits-guide

Cancer Fighting Super Berries!

3-super-berries21Super foods are not a new concept in the health and nutrition world, but we are proud to create the term “super berries.”

What is a super berry?

Super berries contain high amounts of specialized nutrients and powerful antioxidants that create apoptosis (pronounced a-pop-toe-ses).

Apoptosis, often called “cellular suicide,” is a natural process creating the fine balance between cell death and cell renewal. It’s a crucial system used by the body to get rid of cells that are abnormal, mutated, or no longer function properly.

Cancer cells alter and grow in a way that avoids the self-destruction caused by apoptosis. Traditional forms of cancer therapies such as radiation, drug therapy, and chemotherapy can’t tell the difference between healthy cells and mutated cancerous cells – so all fast growing cells are destroyed, whereas apoptosis only targets cancerous cells.

Scientists have now discovered that certain super-foods and super berries can help prevent cancer and/or trigger natural cell death against cancer cells.

Since emerging evidence proves diet influences the cancer process before it begins, it is crucial you discover which foods can make a difference between preventing cancer or accelerating the spread of cancer.

The David Geffen School of Medicine at the University of California studied extracts of six popular berries: blackberry, black raspberry, blueberry, cranberry, red raspberry, and strawberry for their ability to stimulate apoptosis of the COX-2 colon cancer cell line.

The researchers also evaluated these berries for the prevention of oral, breast, colon, and prostate tumor cell growth. They learned black raspberry and strawberry extracts had the most effective apoptosis inducing effects.

Strawberries and raspberries – also contain a unique phytochemical called ellagic acid, which has the power to prevent skin, bladder, lung, esophagus, and breast cancers.

3 Apoptosis Inducing Super Berries That Target Cancer Cells
Three super berries you should add to your anti-cancer diet.

#1. Black raspberries – don’t let anyone tell you black raspberries are blackberries. They are not. The easiest way to differentiate between the two is where the stem attaches to the berry; black raspberries are hollow in the center like raspberries while blackberries have a white core. Black raspberries are rich in anthocyanins.

Studies have shown that this type of potent antioxidant found in berries, grapes, and red cabbage − give fruits and vegetables a blue, red, or purple color. These powerful compounds fight diseases caused by oxidative stress and free radicals including certain types of cancer, cardiovascular disease and chronic inflammation.

Cervical cancer is the second most common female cancer worldwide. One of the challenges in treating cervical cancer is that it is difficult to manage pre-invasive and invasive lesions. Recent studies from the College of Public Health at Ohio State University, Comprehensive Cancer Center in Columbus, Ohio, discovered that black raspberries prevent cervical cancer cell growth and tumor formation. Furthermore, they inhibit inflammation and induce apoptosis in esophageal and colorectal cancer tissues. Black raspberries also contain chemo preventive compounds, including: vitamins A, C, E, folic acid, ellagic acid, and quercetin that can help prevent strokes.

#2 Strawberries – The humble and widely loved strawberry has many benefits. Strawberries have proven to prevent heart attacks in women. In China, 36 participants at high risk for developing esophageal cancer ate strawberries for six months and researchers found that consuming strawberries prevented esophageal lesions from developing into tumors. What a powerful berry!

The volunteers drank freeze-dried strawberry powder mixed with water, since the freeze-dried process concentrates the benefits of the berries. Researcher Tong Chen discovered that 29 out of 36 participants had lesions revert from moderate to mild after six months of consuming two ounces of strawberries a day. The ellagic acid in strawberries deactivated specific carcinogens and decreased the replication of cancer cells.

#3 – Jamun berry (or Indian blackberry) – These juicy purple berries of the native Indian plant, Eugenia jambolana, known as Jamun, jambolan, or black plum are available in the United States, Florida, and Hawaii. The fruit has a sour-sweet taste and due to its tart nature, is usually eaten with a sprinkling of salt.

Traditionally Jamun is used in Ayurvedic medicine to treat digestive disorders, as an antimicrobial, and to control diabetes. Jamun is also a good source of potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, and vitamin C. The College of Pharmacy at the University of Rhode Island analyzed the extract of Jamun berries. They found it exhibited pro-apoptotic effects against breast cancer cells but not towards normal breast cells.  This study reveals the potential benefits of Jamun berry extract against breast cancer.

Breast cancer accounts for more than 1 in 4 cancers diagnosed in women in the United States. Since the role of plant extracts are now emerging as equally effective therapies, these preventative strategies are definitely worth exploring as a safe and effective way to naturally prevent cancer.

These 3 powerful cancer-fighting berries are an essential part of your cancer prevention diet and have key nutrients that can reduce your risk of a stroke, prevent blood clots, and much more. Why not enjoy a bowl of these delicious berries right now?
