Cancer industry trying to co-opt most recent potential natural cure - Frankincense
(NaturalNews) "There is not one, but many cures for cancer available. But they are all being systematically suppressed by ... the major oncology centers. They have too much of an interest in the status quo," stated Dr Robert Atkins, MD, creator of the Atkins Diet, after licensure problems for curing cancer patients with ozone therapy during the 1960s.
Yet the cancer industry keeps doing exactly what Dr. Atkins described. It is amazing how many cures do exist while many suffer and die from "accepted" incredibly expensive toxic chemotherapy and radiation treatments.
At least 100 natural cancer cures have been discovered and used successfully without side effects since 1920.
Now independent research points to another potential natural cancer cure, Sacred Frankincense. This is an herb grown mostly in Oman, south of Saudi Arabia and east of Yemen on the Arabian Sea coast. It has been used medicinally for thousands of years for several ailments by Ayruvedic medicine. However, research is being conducted with the goal of isolating active ingredients in the herb that Big Pharma may mimic with lucrative FDA approved patents.
International laboratory research has demonstrated frankincense essential oil's ability to shut down cancer cells without harming healthy cells. It shuts the cancer cells down by probing the nucleus and resetting the cancerous DNA to normal cellular DNA.
This research is considered preliminary within mainstream medical authority and FDA guidelines. A leading researcher on the frankincense project, Dr. Mahmoud Suhail, says that there are 17 active ingredients in frankincense, but many scientists think Boswellic acid is the main cancer cell eliminator.
Dr. Suhail disagrees, so he's experimenting with the ingredients to determine which one or ones should be isolated. This would benefit Big Pharma, enabling them to create a profitable patented cancer drug based on frankincense after years of testing.
What about simply using the essential oil from high quality frankincense, such as Boswellia Sacra?
The research cover story is that they want to make sure they have the right ingredient or ingredients and to eliminate unnamed allergenic agents that are not actively involved with killing cancer cells. In Oman, however, where many use abundantly grown frankincense, there are no cancer patients in either of the two hospitals. Also, there are no serious allergic reactions among them. Conversely, there are many adverse side effects from pharmaceuticals and chemotherapy.
So the cover story is bogus. Harmful side effects haven't slowed Big Pharma's pursuit of big bucks in the least. Profitable FDA approved patented medications require laboratory synthesis. Natural solutions can't be patented.
At least one informal human trial has been reported using only natural frankincense essential oil. A person with bladder cancer had considerable improvement within two weeks of using frankincense essential oil (http://essentialoils.getoiled.com). Frankincense essential oils are also currently being used in some European hospitals to bolster immunity and elevate moods.
None of this report is intended to be medical advice. The 100 natural cancer cures in existence were not derived from extensive trials and patented. They were used on cancer patients, resulting in cure rates way beyond mainstream medical results without miserable side effects.
If one is unable to attend a special alternative cancer clinic, experts recommend using two or three available natural protocols and avoiding sugar and chemical additives with a "cancer diet" (http://cancertutor.com/AltTreatments/Alt_Diet.html).

Immunologist Mahmoud Suhail is hoping to open a new chapter in the history of frankincense.
Scientists have observed that there is some agent within frankincense which stops cancer spreading, and which induces cancerous cells to close themselves down. He is trying to find out what this is.
"Cancer starts when the DNA code within the cell's nucleus becomes corrupted," he says. "It seems frankincense has a re-set function. It can tell the cell what the right DNA code should be.
"Frankincense separates the 'brain' of the cancerous cell - the nucleus - from the 'body' - the cytoplasm, and closes down the nucleus to stop it reproducing corrupted DNA codes."
Working with frankincense could revolutionise the treatment of cancer. Currently, with chemotherapy, doctors blast the area around a tumour to kill the cancer, but that also kills healthy cells, and weakens the patient. Treatment with frankincense could eradicate the cancerous cells alone and let the others live.
The task now is to isolate the agent within frankincense which, apparently, works this wonder. Some ingredients of frankincense are allergenic, so you cannot give a patient the whole thing.

Dr Suhail (who is originally from Iraq) has teamed up with medical scientists from the University of Oklahoma for the task.
In his laboratory in Salalah, he extracts the essential oil from locally produced frankincense. Then, he separates the oil into its constituent agents, such as Boswellic acid.
"There are 17 active agents in frankincense essential oil," says Dr Suhail. "We are using a process of elimination. We have cancer sufferers - for example, a horse in South Africa - and we are giving them tiny doses of each agent until we find the one which works."
"Some scientists think Boswellic acid is the key ingredient. But I think this is wrong. Many other essential oils - like oil from sandalwood - contain Boswellic acid, but they don't have this effect on cancer cells. So we are starting afresh."
The trials will take months to conduct and whatever results come out of them will take longer still to be verified. But this is a blink of the eye in the history of frankincense.
Nine thousand years ago, Omanis gathered it and burnt it for its curative and cleansing properties. It could be a key to the medical science of tomorrow.
In the March 2010 issue of "Molecular Pharmacology," Dr. Aydee C. Estrada, et al., reported on the effects of tirucallic acids against prostate cancer. Tirucallic acids are the active ingredients found in frankincense. Dr. Estrada found that tirucallic acids extracted from frankincense successfully killed cultured human prostate cancer cells that were experimentally grafted into mice, by inducing the expression of proteins that are important in apoptosis. Apoptosis is a cell process that produces cellular death and is a process most cancers have learned to avoid.
Acute myeloid leukemia, or AML, is a cancer that occurs in the bone marrow and originates in cells that eventually develop into white blood cells of the immune system. AML is rare in children and generally only affects adults over the age of forty. In the March 2005 issue of "Molecular Cancer Therapy," Dr. Lijuan Xia, et al., reported that in laboratory-based experiments, resin from frankincense extract successfully induced apoptosis, increasing cell death by approximately 40 percent in leukemia cells.
Using human bladder cancer cell lines, as reported in the March 2009 issue of "BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine," Dr. Mark Barton Frank, et al., illustrated that frankincense was cytotoxic for bladder tumor cells. In other words, frankincense might provide benefit against bladder cancer by killing cancer cells, while not affecting normal cells. Further experiments are necessary to verify the results.

Good info NYS! Thank you.
CEO - ShirleyMacLaine.com
Thank you NYS for taking your time to share this intrigueing and hopeful
information with all of us.
Dr. Atkins was a friend of mine, a brilliant doctor and very spiritual person, who died way before his time . Always a joy to hear his pioneering spirit lives on in this kind of research.
Best to you,
