If you have cancer, starting a vitamin D regimen is very important. It’ll save your life.
Taking less than 4,000 IU of vitamin D daily is too weak, leaving cancer untouched. Taking more than 40,000 IU of vitamin D daily is too dangerous, leading to vitamin D toxicity. Therefore, a strong and safe cancer-cure dose could range from 10,000 IU to 20,000 IU of vitamin D daily.
There are additional cancer-cure regimens involving tomatoes and broccoli, and cayenne pepper that you can use with your vitamin D regimen. But first, let’s look at some things that interact with vitamin D.
VITAMIN D INTERACTIONS
Some drugs interact with vitamin D. Corticosteroid drugs such as prednisone, prescribed to reduce inflammation, impair vitamin D metabolism. Some weight-loss and cholesterol-lowering drugs reduce vitamin D absorption.
Anti-seizure drugs phenobarbital (Luminal), phenytoin (Dilantin), carbamazepine (Tegretol), and fosphenytoin (Cerebyx) deactivate vitamin D to some extent. Antibiotics such as rifampin (Rimactane) also deactivate vitamin D to some extent.
The following drugs, if taken with vitamin D, decrease vitamin D’s intestinal absorption: cholestyramine (Questran), colestipol (Colestid), orlistat (Xenical), mineral oil, and the fat substitute Olestra.
The oral antifungal medication ketoconazole reduces blood levels of vitamin D in healthy men, reducing their blood calcium levels. Contrastively, taking vitamin D with thiazide diuretics may over-elevate blood calcium levels.
Some medical conditions interact with vitamin D. Taking vitamin D with hyperparathyroidism, sarcoidosis, tuberculosis, lymphoma, adrenal insufficiency, or Crohn’s disease may heighten blood calcium levels too much.
Let’s suppose your drug or medical condition interacts negatively with vitamin D. Should you avoid taking vitamin D? Not necessarily. You should instead take vitamin D under your doctor’s and pharmacist’s supervision. In fact, you should do this even if your drug or medical condition doesn’t interact with vitamin D!
TOMATOES AND BROCCOLI AND CANCER
Tomatoes have anticancer effects. Tomatoes reduce testosterone level; some cancers such as prostate cancer need testosterone to thrive. Also, phytochemicals in tomatoes help to reduce cancer.
Like tomatoes, broccoli is also anticancerous. Broccoli contains sulfur compounds that degrade carcinogens.
It has been known that tomatoes and broccoli individually have anticancer effects. But only recently known that when eaten together, they’re much more powerful!
Researchers recently found that the tomato-broccoli combination dramatically shrinks cancerous tumors, especially prostate tumors.
The more you include tomatoes and broccoli in your meals, the better. This is easier than you think. For example, tomato sauce is a main ingredient in most Italian foods. So all you have to do is add broccoli – and you have a powerful anticancer cocktail!
Do you enjoy Caesar salad, Chef salad, Chinese chicken salad, Cobb salad, Greek salad, or Michigan salad? If so, make sure you add plenty of tomatoes and broccoli, and say goodbye to cancer.
Eaten raw or cooked, the tomato-broccoli combination is a powerful anticancer cocktail. In fact, eating tomatoes and broccoli cooked may make their cancer-fighting constituents more bioavailable.
CAYENNE PEPPER AND CANCER
Capsaicin is the active component of cayenne peppers. Capsaicin irritates animals and humans by producing a burning sensation at the point of tissue contact.
The American Association for Cancer Research reported studies of capsaicin killing prostate cancer cells by programming them to kill themselves. These studies also showed that capsaicin-treated tumors shrank dramatically compared to untreated tumors.
The University of Nottingham’s cancer study suggested that capsaicin can trigger cellular death in human lung cancer cells as well.
Besides squashing prostate and lung cancer, capsaicin can also squash leukemic cancer. For example, there have been studies showing capsaicin inhibiting the growth of leukemic cells.
Also, capsaicin had been found to stunt and kill cancerous bladder cells.
In Thailand, where much spicy food is eaten, gastrointestinal, colorectal, and stomach cancers are rare compared to the rest of Asia. In Mexico, where much spicy food is eaten, these same cancers are rare compared to the USA.
Researchers found that, besides programming cancer cells to kill themselves, cayenne pepper may also damage the cancer cells’ membranes and limit their oxygen supply. And that cayenne pepper selectively targets cancer cells.
CAYENNE PEPPER DOSE
What’s the ideal amount of cayenne pepper needed to combat cancer? According to herbal specialist Vilhaelm Torvund, the recommended dose for all herbal supplements is as follows:
To treat acute medical conditions, take 500 mg four times daily;
To treat chronic medical conditions, take 1,000 mg four times daily;
To treat severely chronic or terminal medical conditions, take 1,000 mg eight times daily.
Therefore if you have cancer, you should take 1,000 mg of cayenne pepper capsules eight times daily. If this is inconvenient, you can instead take 2,000 mg four times daily.
If you experience stomach irritation while taking 2,000 mg of cayenne pepper capsules four times daily, then you should instead take 1,000 mg eight times daily.
On starting a cayenne regimen, you’ll probably experience some diarrhea. Once your body becomes acclimated to the cayenne, you’ll no longer experience the diarrhea.
I buy my bottle of cayenne pepper from the retail store Rite Aid. They sell a high-quality brand made by GNC. It’s important to buy high-quality cayenne pepper, because the low-quality ones may contain harmful impurities.
My only other suggestion is to take cayenne pepper capsules with food and beverages to reduce any possible side effects.
CAYENNE PEPPER INTERACTIONS
Cayenne pepper capsules may interact with certain prescription drugs. For example, cayenne may increase the effects of warfarin (Coumadin), increasing the risk of bleeding. Also, cayenne may increase the absorption rate of prescription drugs in general.
Cayenne pepper capsules may interact with a certain medical condition. Don’t take cayenne if you’re allergic to cayenne peppers. Possible allergic reactions are difficulty breathing, throat closure, facial swelling, and hives.
It’s wise to take cayenne pepper capsules under your doctor’s supervision.
Individually, vitamin D, tomato-broccoli combinations, and cayenne pepper have strong anticancer effects – but together, they slap the toughest cancer into submission! Taking vitamin D and cayenne pepper supplements, and eating tomatoes and broccoli can be called the DTBC (D vitamin, tomato-broccoli, and cayenne) plan.
The DTBC (D vitamin, tomato-broccoli, and cayenne) plan consists of doing the following:
#1: Take 10,000-20,000 IU of vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) tablets daily.
#2: Take 2,000 mg of cayenne pepper capsules four times daily with food and beverages.
#3: Include both tomatoes and broccoli in your meals. The more you do this, the better.
#4: Use the DTBC plan under your doctor’s supervision.
#5: Use the DTBC plan with your cancer therapy (e.g., radiation, chemo, or surgical therapy).
P.S. If you’ve never had cancer, are healthy, but want to prevent cancer, you can use the DTBC plan. Nevertheless, there’s no need for you to take more than 10,000 IU of vitamin D3 daily or more than 1,000 mg of cayenne pepper four times daily.
A Peculiar Discovery: Delving deeper, I discovered that not only does the DTBC plan cure cancer, but it also cures heart disease and obesity. Perhaps cancer, heart disease, and obesity are somehow connected.
Common Sense: If you use the DTBC plan to cure your heart disease or obesity, you should do so under your doctor’s supervision.
