The Beljanski Foundation Fall Newsletter

This year again scientists from all over the world have taken an interest in the natural extracts developed by Dr. Mirko Beljanski. Three new studies refer to his work, and confirm the anti-cancer activity of the plants he studied, all in extremely different areas. A new study confirms the Pao pereira (Pau pereira) extract inhibits chronic prostate inflammation. The prostate tends to enlarge and cause  potentially serious urinary problems. This condition is called BPH (Benign Prostate Hyperplasia). Millions of men suffer from it, and conventional medicine does not offer a definitive cure without side effects.

The study was conducted at Nanjing University (1), and carried out with the support of The Beljanski Foundation and CIRIS, using extracts offered by Maison Beljanski/Natural Source. It shows that Pao pereira (Pau pereira) inhibits excess NFKB activity, helping to reduce the production of inflammatory cytokines. In addition, Pao pereira (Pau pereira) induces apoptosis, also known as the ”cell death program”, of the epithelial cells and stromal cells which are inflamed. This study complements previous publications showing that Pao pereira (Pau pereira) is effective on prostate cancer cells (2), and even on metastasized cancer cells that no longer respond to hormonal treatments (3).

All of these publications on the prostate therefore confirm that thanks to its multiple mechanisms of action, Pao pereira (Pau pereira) is effective at all stages of prostate disease (inflammation, cancer, advanced cancer), without toxicity and without side effects.

Another study investigates the inhibition of colorectal cancer cells by the Pao pereira (Pau pereira) extract (4). The authors of the study first note the lack of effectiveness of conventional therapies in colorectal cancer, which they attribute in part to the fact that chemotherapy and radiotherapy induce a mutation and destruction of the p53 protein (5). P53 is essential because it is involved in DNA/protein transcription phases, and in the expression of genes which are responsible for repairing cellular damage. Noting, on the other hand, the effectiveness already noted by Dr. Mirko Beljanski of the Pao pereira (Pau pereira) extract on the selective destruction of colorectal cancer cells without affecting healthy cells (6,7), the researchers looked at the mechanism of action of the extract. This new study confirms that the regulatory action of flavoperin (an active molecule of Pao pereira extract) promotes the expression of p53, induces apoptosis in cancer cells, while inhibiting the proliferation of cancer cells (inhibition of JAKs – STATs).

Finally, The University of Kansas Medical Center (USA) has just published a study comparing several famous teas with a new blend of green teas called ”OnkoTea®”, which is a blend of organic teas selected by Dr. Mirko Beljanski (8). Green teas have long been associated with antioxidant and anti-cancer benefits, and all teas tested showed some inhibitory effect on cancer cell lines, but OnkoTea® exhibited the best inhibitory effect. Compared to Bigelow®, Kusmi® and Lipton®, OnkoTea® had the strongest anti-cancer effect on breast, liver, bladder and melanoma cancer cells.

It therefore seems that this OnkoTea®, like Pao pereira (Pau pereira), is effective on various lines of cancer cells.

A second study, specifically targeting activity on melanoma with OnkoTea®, is underway.

Coming Soon

Audiobook: Winning The War On Cancer: The Epic Journey Towards a Natural Cure.
By popular demand, this award winning book will be released as an Audiobook!

Winning The War On Cancer: The Epic Journey Towards a Natural Cure reveals a true story about natural medical research that is astonishing and compelling. A critical book to read if you know anyone with cancer.

As Annie Brandt, President of the Best Answer for Cancer Foundation said, ”Whether a current cancer
patient or caregiver, a survivor, a researcher, an author/speaker, or a physician, Sylvie’s story and information is ground-breaking, exciting, and essential to know.”

Email to be added to our newsletter so you’ll be the first to know when the audiobook is released.
