Is a GMO free diet necessary? (Diet Series 3)

Dr. John Jimenez, October 9, 2012

What’s all the fuss about GMO products?

GMOs, or “genetically modified organisms,”  take gene from one specie and blast them into a DNA of plant cells and clone those cells into crops. Two types: herbicide tolerant(do not die when sprayed with herbicide), pesticide producing crops(breaks open stomach of insects and kills them (in corn BT toxin)). This experimental technology merges DNA from different species, creating unstable combinations of plant, animal, bacterial and viral genes that cannot occur in nature or in traditional crossbreeding.

9 GMO crops related to food:

soy (80% of all food in supermarket)- 90% of processes foods
corn (80% of all food in supermarket)- 90% of processes foods
cotton (for oil)
sugar (from sugar beads) (90 of all food in supermarket)
hawaiian papaya
zucchini squash
crookneck squash

Problems with eating GMOs foods: 

can create toxins
reproductive problems
immune system problems
accelerating aging
organ damage
gastrointestinal problems
dysfunctional regulation of cholesterol and insulin
can create new diseases and nutritional problems
can create allergies
American Academy of Environmental Medicine, Policy Paper 2011

Studies throughout the world Peer Reviews in Rodents: fed with GM soy beans
changes in uterus, and ovaries
changes in testicles
changed way DNA function in embryo offspring
smaller babies
fewer babies
5 fold increase in infant mortality
By the third generation of hamsters some had hair growing in their mouth.

NON - GMO diet is the way to go!

The importance of Juicing in illness (Diet series part 2)

October 5, 2012

Juicing is described as the process of extracting juice from plant tissues such as fruit or vegetables. As a kid I was exposed to juicing by "mr. juiceman himself" , Jay Kordich. I remember watching him on TV sporting sweats and standing on a table full of fruits and vegetables and a Juicer.  A few years ago I had dinner with him and his lovely wife and we exchanged ideas about juicing (ok, I just listened).  In the last twenty years we have become most conscious of how helpful and beneficial juicing can be to our overall health more then any other time in our modern history.  What is the best protocol in regards to juicing for cancer patients and patients with degenerative diseases and autoimmune diseases? There is not one set protocol, each patient is different and their stage of their illness should always be taken into consideration. Learning from ancient cultures and modern experts such as Mr. Kordich, Mrs. Gerson(of the Gerson Diet) and others as well as my clinical experience with numerous patients over the years has lead me to the following conclusions about juicing with regards to patients with the types of diseases listed above.
1. Avoid vegetables with high sugar content such as sweet potatoes, yams, carrots and beets. Wheatgrass is first choice to juice in this category. Scand J Gastroenterol . 2002;37:444-9.
2.  If juicing is an option or part of the diet these should be included:
all berries, rhubarb, watermelons,  and green apples. Most other fruits have higher sugar content.
3.  Noni can be use when potassium levels are being monitor on the patient and
the patient's renal function is not compromised. University of Hawaii, cancer research center January 8, 2004.
4. Moringa leaves are excellent sources of nourishment on malnourish patients, or patients that have no appetite or can not eat. The juicing of these leaves can be given via port and or GI tube on NPO patients. There are many sites that sale the extract or tonic, like anything else check for toxic chemicals in these products.
5. Pomegranate one of the highest anti-oxidant fruit. Helps in reducing metastasis, especially in prostate cancer.  Lei Wang American Society for Cell Biology on Dec. 12, 2010.

The importance of diet in a cancer patient (Diet Series part 1)

The importance of diet in a cancer patient
October 1, 2012 - Posted by Dr. John Jimenez

Dr. John Jimenez
We don’t have to look very far nowadays to find experts on dieting , juicing and healthy living. But when we are dealing with cancer patients or patients with severe illnesses we must be extra careful on the information we share about their specific diet. If you are one of these patients or a  family member of these patients, I implore you to make sure the information you are getting is legitimate. The patient’s life depends on it. Our research into the best diets for the cancer patient lead us from antiquity to the modern era. Since, we treat each patient different according to their condition, each diet has to be given with this in mind. But there is some general basic information that all patients share in regards to their diet.

1. Cancer cells thrive with sugar. Low or No sugar(processed) diet is recommended.
2. Cancer cells thrive in an acidic environment. Alkaline diet is recommended.
3. Coffee enemas have been applied since the great Egyptians civilizations. The benefits of these are numerous, with no toxic or harmful effects. Edwin Smith Papyrus (c.1600 BC) and the Ebers Papyrus (c. 1550 BC)
4. Avoid all dairy products- not only does milk have a high estrogen content(December 2006 issue of "The Harvard University Gazette”) but it comes from an animal that has been exposed to pesticides, antibiotics and hormones. Inflammation and mucus built up are also causes of eating or drinking dairy products.
5. Anything processed should not be eaten.

Note: These guidelines should be followed under the guidance of a professional health
care provider.
