My protocol

Protocol for Rachel Bown, 7th December,  By Juliet Hayward – Nutritional Therapist.  juliethayward@btinternet.com.  Tel: 0207 275 7888 or 0208 488 1000

This is my own personal protocol based on my circumstances and blood results.  It is advisable to get your own, but I thought this has such useful information I would share it with you.

20 minutes before Breakfast:

Optional: Centaurium by Bioforce. Take 15 drops in water or juice. This helps to reduce acid reflux by strengthening the spincter around the opening to the stomach.

Optional: Asafoetida plus by Pukka.  Take 2 capsules with warm water. This is helpful for reducing painful wind.

Breakfast:

Biobran sachet 1000mg by The Really Healthy Company. Take 1. This helps to boost immunity by activating Natural Killer Cells, T-lymphocytes, B lymphocytes and dendritic cells. Natural killer cells seek out malignant cells to annihilate them. They naturally migrate to rapidly dividing cells. Dendritic cells gather up pathogenic cells and present them to the NK cells. Cancer cells can emit substances that suppress the maturation of the dendritic cells, leading to tumour tolerance. Biobran is able to help the dendritic cells withstand this and reach a maturity, so they can work more effectively with the NK cells. Biobran also helps to boost interleukin 2, a substance produced by the immune cells to help mount a defence against viruses, bacteria and malignant cells. It also helps to reduce inflammation. Biobran can also help safeguard against some of the side effects of platinum based chemotherapy drugs.

Optional: Acerola C 500mg by Nature’s Plus. This is Vitamin C. Take 1. This is helpful for reducing your susceptibility to viruses.

Butyric Acid by Biocare. Take 1. This helps to induce cell death in malignant cells with in the colon and protect healthy colon cells.

Lipozyme by Biocare. Take 1. This is an enzyme that breaks down fats. This enzyme can help compensate for you no longer having a gallbladder.

Optional: Geo by New Vistas. I will contact you with the dosage instructions. This product has been developed to protect you from geopathic stress. It will be available in January 2012. Take 5 drops.

Liv 52 by Vedic. Take 4. This is useful for liver detoxification and supporting liver function. It may help to reduce raised liver enzymes. This product needs to be reduced to 1 three times a day once you are on chemotherapy.

Optional: Yarrow by Herba Naturelle. Take 30 drops. This has astringent qualities and can help reduce internal bleeding.

Caricol by Nutri Ltd. Take 1 sachet. This can help improve bowel movements in a very gentle way.

Optional: Ashwagandha by Nutrition Herbs. Take 1. This is helpful for adrenal support and helps improve your ability to withstand stress.

Nature’s Biotics by Kiki. Take 2. This helps to reduce gut fermentation and boost bowel flora.  It is helpful to undermine gut fermentation. Cancer cells are fuelled by fermentation as they do not burn oxygen for energy like healthy cells. Good bowel flora helps to police the gut and helps to safeguard the body from absorbing pollutants that have been ingested. It can also help to boost immune cells and synthesize certain nutrients and short chain fatty acids.

Truefood Selenium 200ug by Higher Nature.  Take 2 capsules. This helps to boost white blood cells called neutrophils. It reduces inflammation and boosts an important antioxidant called glutathione.  Selenium also helps to boost T and B lymphocyte proliferation. It also helps to increase NK cell levels, bolsters interleukin 2 (an immune substance that helps to fight malignant cells) and helps to up-regulate cell mediated immunity (immunity that comes from with in the cell) and humoral immunity (immunity that comes from outside the cell).

Slippery Elm powder by Baldwins. Mix a half a tsp in tepid water to form a paste and then add hot water to make a tea. This is helpful for reducing inflammation and pain throughout the whole of the GI tract.

Bio D Mulsion Forte by Biotics Research.  Take 4 drops. This is helpful to boost cell differentiation and reduce cell proliferation.

VegEpa by Igennus (fish oils).  Take 4 capsules.  This helps to reduce inflammation and helps to induce cell apoptosis (cell death of old or malignant cells).

B12 Active by Enzymatic Therapy. Take 1. This helps reduce nerve tingling by enhancing nerve repair. It also helps to boost the red blood cell count.

Mid Morning:

Glutamine Powder by Lamberts. This is helpful to strengthen and repair the gut wall. It is particularly helpful for those that have undergone bowel surgery. All lymphocytes are dependent on glutamine. Glutamine enhances their proliferation and stimulates cytokine release. Cytokines are the ‘weapons’ of the immune system. In vitro glutamine boosted both interleukin 2 and gamma interferon. These are two important cytokines.

Serraenzyme 80,000iu by Good Healthy Naturally. This is a powerful anti-inflammatory.

20 Minutes Before lunch:

Optional: Asafoetida plus by Pukka. Take 2 capsules with warm water.

Optional: Centaurium by Bioforce. Take 15 drops in water or juice.

Lunch-time:

Slippery Elm powder by Baldwins. Mix half a tsp in tepid water and then add a cup of hot water. Drink as a tea.

Biobran 1000mg by The Really Healthy Company. Take 1 sachet. This can be reduced to two sachets a day if you get good CT scan results.

Lipozyme by Biocare. Take 1.

B12 Active by Enzymatic Therapy. Take 1.

Butyric Acid by Biocare. Take 1.

Mid Afternoon:

Glutamine Powder by Lambert. Take 1 tsp.

Optional: Acerola C 500mg by Nature’s Plus. Take 1.

Geo by New Vistas. Take 5 drops.

1 hour before retiring:

Optional: Asphalia Sleep by Coghill Labs. Take 1. This helps enhance sleep and boosts melatonin. Melatonin is an important antioxidant that also boosts the cytokine interleukin 2. This immune substance has an important role in protecting you against pathogen. This could also be helpful in protecting against geopathic stress.

Zinc Picolinate by Solgar. Take 1. All T-lymphocytes (immune cells) are dependant on zinc. Zinc fires up Natural Killer Cells that police the body killing pathogens and malignant cells. It also boosts circulating lymphocytes by increasing the production of thymulin, which enhances lymphocyte replication. It also helps to increase neutrophils.

Nausea:

Ginger Honey Tonic by New Chapter. Take 1 to 2 teaspoons when ever it is needed. It is helpful for nausea. It also is anti-inflammatory and it is very rich in antioxidants.

Foods:

Green tea. Drink 2 to 3 cups a day, away from food and ideally in the first part of the day. This can help to reduce an inflammatory protein known as NF Kappa B.  NF Kappa B can be instrumental in helping cancer cells to migrate to other parts of the body.

Tumeric. Use this spice copiously in cooking. Cook in coconut oil with black pepper. This is a powerful antioxidant and can be helpful to reduce an inflammatory protein called NF Kappa B. NK kappa B can be instrumental in helping cancer cell migrate else where in the body.

Avoid the microwave as this can suppress immunity. See information sheet for further information.

Mucilaginous foods are very important to limit discomfort and pain in the bowel. Try eating 1 of the mucilaginous foods every day. Please see mucilaginous food diet sheet.

See other diet sheets.
