  1. Kaufmann diet attacks cancer at its root

    Destroy cancer with this groundbreaking at-home therapy

    It's the cancer-fighting secret that EVERYONE will be talking about in the near future.

    But today, I'm going to put you ahead of the curve.

    I've got tomorrow's news today -- because I've got the scoop on the groundbreaking research behind a proven technique that attacks the hidden cause of many cancers.

    This simple, easy-to-follow program will FIGHT the tumor at its root and CRUSH it.

    This cutting-edge cancer cure isn't a drug with side effects.

    It's not even a vitamin or supplement.

    The secret is a natural diet designed to specifically SEEK and DESTORY the pathogenic fungal infections we now know are often the cause of so many cancers.

    It's called the Kaufmann diet, and it was developed by researcher and mycotoxin expert Doug Kaufmann. It's specially designed to starve these infections so that the cancer cells die off -- and it's proven to work if you HAVE cancer, if you're at RISK for cancer, or if you're just concerned and want to make sure that you NEVER get this disease.

    Kaufmann's diet came about after he discovered striking similarities between cancer and fungi, including how they both thrive on sugars.

    More importantly, they both DIE without those same sugars.

    Of course, sugar isn't just the white stuff in a porcelain bowl in your cupboard.

    In addition to that sugar itself, carbs such as grains -- including whole grains -- are converted into sugars inside your body.

    As a result, the first phase of the Kaufmann diet severely restricts sugars and carbs.

    Alcohol is also forbidden. Not only is booze a top cause of the disease, but the sugars in alcohol can help feed the fungal infections at the root of these cancers.

    You also need to avoid yeast, which will be less of a problem without bread and beer (but watch ingredients carefully -- you'd be surprised how often they sneak it in), as well as fungi and mushrooms (for obvious reasons) and peanuts, which can contain fungal mycotoxins.

    Patients are also given anti-fungal medications and/or supplements in this phase.

    Without the sugars, the fungi behind many cancers in the body choke and die, killing tumors at the same time.

    And that's not all.

    This phase also works in three other ways:

    1. It boosts your immune system so that your body is better equipped to fight cancer.
    2. It slashes your levels of the damaging inflammation that helps tumors to thrive.
    3. It protects your DNA from the damage of the fungal infection.

    Once this phase is complete -- and you're feeling better than you have in years -- dieters can slowly restore low levels of healthy carbohydrates.

  2. Excess belly fat linked to death risk in women

    A deadly case of... muffin top?!?

    Ladies, you KNOW that the muffin top that turned up after menopause is unsightly, so I'm sure that you want it GONE.

    But that's not the only important reason to make that muffin crumble, as new research shows how that extra layer of fat around the middle isn't just a nuisance.

    It could also be DEADLY!

    I'll help you melt away that excess belly fat in a minute, but first, here's what the latest scientific findings have to say.

    The new study confirms how too much fat anywhere on the body is, of course, a risk factor for heart problems... but it ALSO reveals how SOME types of fat are WORSE than others.

    If it's building up around the middle... if you develop the "apple" shape that so many women get after menopause... you could face a higher risk of a deadly heart problem.

    Compared to just BMI alone, a higher waist-to-hip ratio -- a sign of too much fat building up right in the muffin zone -- will increase your risk of a heart attack by 18 percent.

    Guys don't quite have that same risk. A higher hip-to-waist ratio "only" boosts the risk of a heart attack by 6 percent.

    And when you put men and women in head-to-head -- or hip-to-hip -- competition, women with muffin tops are 15 percent more likely to suffer a heart attack than the guys.

    Even going by waist circumference alone -- another sign of fat building up in the wrong places -- the Journal of the American Heart Association study says that women are 7 percent more likely to have a heart attack than men.

    So, what can you do about it?

    The American Heart Association responded to the new study by saying that women should cut the carbs, sugar, and booze.

    No arguments here. That's certainly a good start.

    But you can quit all three of those things and find that stubborn muffin still won't go away.

    There's a simple reason for it, and that's the hormonal changes that hit you after menopause.

    You could have had the perfect shape all your life, but once the estrogen and progesterone levels drop, the fat in your body starts to shift around and hug your hips.

    Eventually, you end up with an "apple" shape -- a.k.a. the dreaded muffin top.

    If you're on the other side of menopause... and have struggled to lose weight even on a sensible diet... speak with a holistic doctor who can test your hormone levels and treat you if necessary.

    There are natural therapies that can get your body to produce hormones again on its own, or in some cases, you may need natural bioidentical replacement therapy.

    If you're in the San Diego area, I run one of the nation's most complete hormone testing and treatment programs at the Stengler Center for Integrative Medicine.
