Pancreatic Cancer: Beljanski® Extracts Neutralize Cells that Cause Recurrence

By inhibiting cancer stem cells, capable of re-initiating cancer after remission, the Beljanski® extracts, Pao pereira and Rauwolfia vomitoria, limit the risk of recurrence. Two studies confirm this action on the stem cells of pancreatic cancer, one of the most difficult to cure.

To understand the importance of the studies discussed here, one must understand how cancer cells work. Two studies published in 2012 (1) made progress on this point. They confirmed that, in all types of cancer, not all cancer cells are created equal. Some have a more important role than others: they are in a way the masters of cancer. The researchers called them Cancer Stem Cells (CSCs). If these cells are not eliminated by treatments, the risk of recurrence after remission is greater because they can recreate cancer. However, these cells develop resistance to chemotherapy (2) and radiotherapy (3). What’s even worse, CSCs can reproduce and enrich the population of resistant cells (3).

Additionally, the effectiveness of a treatment is no longer measured only by the reduction of a tumor, but also by the elimination of these CSCs.

CSCs, Pet Peeves of Oncologists

Since 2012, CSCs have become the pet peeves of oncologists. This is why the researchers at Kansas University Medical Center (KUMC) who had previously worked with the Beljanski® extracts Pao pereira and Rauwolfia vomitoria, chose to test these extracts on cancer stem cells. They also chose one of the most difficult and undoubtedly the most dangerous cancers to treat: pancreatic cancer. They conducted in vitro studies on human cells and in vivo studies on mice, which are mandatory studies to do prior to human trials. These essays resulted in two publications in peer-reviewed scientific journals.


Rauwolfia Vomitoria: Beljanski's® Extract Inhibits Pancreatic CSCs

The first extract used was Rauwolfia vomitoria, an African plant whose anticancer molecules were identified and extracted by Dr. Mirko Beljanski, is available today under the name RovolV®. The study tested the Beljanski® extract of Rauwolfia vomitoria in mice with pancreatic cancer. All of the data collected throughout the study shows that Rauwolfia vomitoria inhibits pancreatic CSCs o in other words, neutralizes them. They also found that this extract did not have any negative side effects.

These results are all the more remarkable in that they contrast with the poor therapeutic results obtained by conventional treatments for pancreatic cancer, linked to resistant CSCs which promote metastasis and tumor return. The study, titled Inhibition of Pancreatic Cancer Stem Cells by Rauwolfia Vomitoria Extract, was published in December 2017 by the Oncology Reports.

This study therefore scientifically validates the numerous testimonies of patients cured of this type of cancer after having used products resulting from the research of Dr. Mirko Beljanski.


The Beljanski® Extract Pao Pereira Inhibits Pancreatic CSCs in vitro and in vivo

KUMC conducted a second study on pancreatic cancer, but this time with Pao pereira.

“We have studied the extract of the medicinal plant Pao pereira (Pao) for its activity against pancreatic CSCs. Pao inhibited the overall proliferation of human pancreatic cancer cell lines," said the authors in the study published in May 2018 in the Journal Integrative Cancer Therapies. As for the in vivo study titled Extract of the Medicinal Plant Pao Pereira Inhibits Pancreatic Cancer Stem-Like Cell In Vitro and In Vivo, they observed that CSCs were also inhibited in mice. Most importantly, the study showed that Pao pereira did not have any unwanted side effects.


Importance of Avoiding Recurrences in Pancreatic Cancer

Surprisingly enough, this information has not been taken into the mainstream scientific and medical community, even though research is now focused on eliminating CSCs. The relapse of pancreatic cancer is important: the rate of Metastatic recurrence is 70% according to the French National Society of Gastroenterology (4). In the event of recurrence, even if diagnosed quickly, the chances of recovery are limited, states the European Society for Medical Oncology (5).

Clearly, it is important to treat CSCs in the first cancer treatment. And these studies show the usefulness of recommending the two Beljanski® extracts to treat CSCs. And not just for pancreatic cancer because these extracts attack cancer cells regardless of the organ or gender, without any negative side effects!

Fibrosis and Cellular Deregulation

How to protect yourself from the side effects of radiotherapy

How can you protect yourself from the immediate or delayed side effects of radiotherapy, so often prescribed in conventional cancer care? This is a question Dr. Mirko Beljanski wanted to answer and carried out extensive research before succeeding in isolating a molecule from the tree called ginkgo biloba. The efficacy of Beljanski’s ginkgo biloba extract has been proven by scientific studies and confirmed by results obtained in people undergoing radiation therapy.

A question motivated Dr. Mirko Beljanski: how to protect people from side effects of conventional cancer treatment, including radiotherapy? Indeed, radiation does not only affect the areas treated, but often affects other parts of the body which do not need radiation and disrupts the functioning of cells. Even though modern radiation therapies are increasingly designed to reduce this from happening and the severity of damage it causes, fibrosis of the tissues between the area of ​​the body exposed to radiation and the targeted tumor remains a major problem, especially for head and neck cancers.

The French National Cancer Institute (INC) specifies on its website the multiple side effects of radiation are to be expected, which vary depending on the part of the body receiving treatment (brain, breast, intestine, etc.). Some of these effects appear quickly, but others appear long after treatment.

Gingko Biloba, the Only Tree to Resist the Hiroshima Bomb

In his desire to find a solution, Dr. Beljanski became interested in ginkgo biloba when he learned that six of these trees growing in Hiroshima, a few kilometers from where the atomic bomb exploded in 1945, survived the explosion and resumed their growth without genetic mutation. He speculated that the tree must contain a molecule that protects against radioactivity. After much research, he was able to isolate this molecule from the leaves of the tree, at the stage where they turn golden. This research led to a scientific publication.


Beljanski’s Extract of Ginkgo Biloba Protects Cells from Radiation

The Beljanski extract of Ginkgo biloba taken during and after exposure to radiation protects, prevents and even reverses - some even go so far as to say "cures" - fibrosis and restores the cellular mechanism disrupted by radiation.

Here is a testimonial from a patient explaining how fibrosis caused by radiation treatment for a breast tumor, impossible to heal despite years of treatment, was cured by this extract.

As Dr. Beljanski reported, the data showed that "radiation-induced skin fibrosis can be attenuated or even suppressed in vivo by a biological regulator" such as that found in the golden leaf extract of Ginkgo.

The mechanism of action of this extract is explained here on The Beljanski Foundation website.


Please Remember

Dr. Beljanski’s ginkgo biloba extract is very different from ginkgo biloba extracts found on the market, some of which are criticized today, and which mainly aim to improve blood circulation.

On the other hand, Dr. Beljanski's work has also focused on other side effects of radiation therapy that harm the immune system. Beljanski’s Pao pereira extract and the RNA fragments called ReaLBuild allow the body to effectively fight against these other side effects.

Supplement Safety

Medical Experts Wanted to Discuss Supplement Safety

Medical Experts Wanted to Discuss Supplement Safety

The Beljanski Foundation, a New York based 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization, is dedicated to funding research for natural, non-toxic answers to cancer by continuing the work of accomplished French molecular biologist, Dr. Mirko Beljanski, who spent over 40 years studying the environmental impact on DNA replication and transcription. Over the years The Beljanski Foundation has sponsored research on the anti-cancer properties of plant extracts Dr. Beljanski discovered, collaborating with prestigious institutions including Columbia University and Kansas University Medical Center.

Plant extracts are marketed as dietary supplements by various companies. The Foundation’s first march of order was to approach a reputable manufacturing company and check if their extracts were able to match Dr. Beljanski’s original specifications regarding purity and strength.  The USP or the NSF labels were useless in this case, because those companies have developed methodologies to test very popular ingredients, but had no knowledge on how to test those little known plant extracts, and no interest in developing a methodology for testing. The manufacturer had to develop its own specifications and testing programs to ensure supplement safety. They were able to develop high quality products and the research programs have led to numerous publications in peer review papers showing how plant extracts can be both safe and effective

At a time the public is craving natural solutions that are effective and affordable, one would think that the manufacturer would boast his association with such prestigious research as a great marketing tool.

But it is not happening

The reason? Herb and supplement manufacturers who dare research their products can be put out of business if their research is deemed by authorities to reveal an intent of bringing to market a product that could help treat a medical condition!

One would think that there could be no serious objection to accurately informing the public about any lawful activity. After all, the First Amendment requires liberty to discuss publicly all matters of public concern. But since the enactment of the Dietary Supplement Health Safety Act in 1994, manufacturers making health-related claims or deemed to make an implied claim, or even deemed to have the intent to make a possible claim on food products, have been prosecuted.


Pharmaceuticals Continue to Shut Out Natural Solutions

In the meantime, it’s no surprise that pharmaceutical companies will protect their brands at all costs and decry natural solutions as quackery, even if this blanket rejection of natural treatments screams conflict of interest. The industry warns that if natural treatments are allowed to flourish, “Desperately ill patients clinging to false hope may refuse surgery or give up their medicine and die.” Meanwhile, the industry continues to treat only the symptoms — the consequences of the sickness and not the cause of sickness — while imposing even higher prices on its products.

Good News

The good news is that more and more good doctors are refusing to be turned into five-minute prescription dispensers. They recognize that medicine is a holistic, multifaceted discipline. They value nutrition, psychology, and environmental medicine as part of their medical practices. Meanwhile, patients are becoming more and more empowered and educated. In growing numbers, patients are seeking new personalized solutions to replace the old one-size-fits-all approach to medicine.

Help for You

Every time you see a conventional doctor, ask questions on prevention, nutrition, supplement safety and lifestyle. Tell your doctor that you expect him or her to take the time to get to know you and discuss your health goals.  We have a right to self-determination. You may ask your doctor what the alternatives are to conventional treatment. Your doctor should assist you with reviewing all the options that science offers. “Ignorance leads to the loss of Freedom,” as Benjamin Franklin has taught us.

As for the supplements themselves, I cannot stress enough the importance of the quality of the natural extracts being used. Obviously, only quality extracts sufficiently loaded with active ingredients will trigger results. Beware of the inconsistency in potency from one brand to another. There can be a huge difference in concentration between various extracts available on the market.

Beware also of substances only backed by unverified testimonials. Look instead for compounds where the mechanisms of actions have been studied and published in reputable scientific journals. More often than not, cheap imitators “borrow” the science made by serious companies and present the results as if obtained by their own product. Look for companies that pursue research, or who provide material used by researchers.

Look for the trademark. Serious, quality products are trademarked. The trademark should appear visibly on the label. Only one company has been authorized to use the Beljanski® trademark, and the products it sells are the same quality as the ones being used for research.

An aging population, combined with increased pollution, and global access to weapons of mass destruction in the form of pre-packaged foods and sugary drinks, have created the “perfect sickness storm.” Meanwhile, whatever their differences, healthcare systems around the world are all plagued by ever-increasing costs and long waits at hospitals for expensive conventional treatment. Some systems work better than others in terms of reimbursements, accessibility, and coverage, but they are all straining under the pressure of spiraling costs and reduced access. When our soil is depleted, our crops poisoned by chemicals, our milk pasteurized, our water contaminated, more than ever our society needs quality dietary supplements. This industry should be hailed for bringing us natural vitamins, antioxidants, probiotics, minerals, and other sources of goodness.

covid-19 vaccine

Will The Coronavirus Go Away Without a Vaccine?

Will The Coronavirus Go Away Without a Vaccine? And What Will be the Real Price to Pay for this Vaccination?

Pandemics are nothing new. The Old Testament, in the books of Leviticus and Numbers, addresses the unclean and contagious nature of leprosy and provides details on how to quarantine lepers. In the fourteenth century, the world was ravaged by “the Black Death”, a bubonic plague that first originated from Asia and spread to the Mediterranean, to unleashed horrific devastations all over Europe. Despite lacking any advanced knowledge of microbes or theories of disease transmission, Venice’s local authorities managed to link the origin of the disease to a boat that had entered the port and devised containment measures of those who were contaminated. That was the introduction of the “quaranta”, a forty-day period of confinement, which was established at that time, as the length of time necessary to certify entrants as medically safe.

But for some weird reason, in the face of today’s pandemic we would not consider quarantining only the sick. The “modern” approach of quarantine is about confining the general population. Which of course, is unsustainable. Therefore, short of being able to confine healthy people forever, the next beloved idea is to mass treat it with vaccination.

But it’s not that easy. Back in the 80’s, at the height of the HIV pandemic, US Secretary of Health and Human Services Margaret Heckler predicted that a preventative vaccine would be ready for testing in two years. As we know, it never materialized.

In the fourteenth century, the world was ravaged by “the Black Death”

If we fail to find a vaccine for the Coronavirus (COVID-19), does it mean that the virus remains part of our lives? Not necessarily.

We’ve learned from past epidemics that as people get sick in the short term their immune system develops antibodies to fight the illness. In the long term this provides immunity for the affected population. This immunity limits person to person viral transmission. This is called “community” or herd immunity. It works but it can take years to achieve.

The fact is that the virus could remain with us for many years. In the meantime, the medical response to HIV/AIDS, for which a vaccine was never achieved, provides a framework for living with a disease may look like: The development of therapeutic treatments will help “flatten the curve” of new cases over time, and we will learn to live with the idea that the virus is “out there”. Developing new drugs for COVID-19 takes longer than getting approval for an existing drug, but the windfall for pharmaceutical companies developing new drugs is such, that there is a strong push back against the idea of considering anything old or natural (in other words, everything that cannot be patented). We will therefore wait for new drugs approval. The Federal Drug Administration is poised to speed it up by fast-tracking some approvals to treat those who get sick. The new norm for society will become continuing social distancing, as well as having a big number of our freedoms limited.

However, most experts remain confident that we will see the COVID-19 vaccine being developed in the coming months; in part because, the coronavirus does not mutate rapidly, making it a good candidate, at least on paper, for vaccination, and also because there is so much at stake financially and politically that pharmaceutical companies are under extreme pressure “to come up with something”.


So if we have a vaccine, will that be the end of the virus? Not necessarily.

Not all vaccines are effective. Actually, the CDC indicates that flu vaccine effectiveness has oscillated between 10-60% from 2005-2017, while systematic reviews show no beneficial effect of inactivated influenza vaccines on flu mortality.(1) Moreover, vaccines for the common flu (rhinoviruses and adenoviruses)—which, like the coronavirus, can cause cold symptoms—are known to be very difficult to develop. However, it is clear that even if a vaccine doesn’t work as well as advertised, chances are that low immunity will be considered better than no immunity. Considering the political pressure to provide the general population with a sense of security, any vaccine providing some level of immunity will be hailed as a victory against the pandemic.

Even though concerns over the need for more effective vaccines will be dismissed, a potential problem for vaccines that induce low levels of antibodies should not be ignored. A phenomenon called “antibody-dependent enhancement of disease”, is where the low level antibodies induce a more invasive spread of the virus into different cell types, actually worsening the disease. This is exactly what was seen in clinical trials when the science was abandoned for the HIV vaccine.

Research on the long term effects of not-so-effective vaccines reveal that even with 100% compliance, outbreaks would still occur because the vaccines would not provide the population with sufficient immunity to prevent epidemics.(2)


And the question arises as to whether there is a link between the flu vaccine and the deaths due to COVID-19.

From recent data (3), researchers are able to compare the results obtained by countries having enforced a strict lock down (like France, Ireland, Italy, Belgium and the UK), to those who have opted for a “smart lock down” (like the Netherlands, where only activities requiring close contact with clients, as well as bars and restaurants, were ordered to close down), to those who opted for no lock down at all, only social distancing (Sweden), it is becoming increasingly clear that the lock down has failed to translate into a reduced mortality rate of COVID-19.

Sweden and Ireland have had similar mortality rates as a result of COVID-19, while the former allowed commercial activities to continue and the latter imposed strict containment. On the other hand, Eastern Europe is much less affected than Western countries, including the United States. This can be explained by the fact that the countries of Western Europe and the United States have areas of urban concentration with high population densities and many international airports.

Additional differences like demographics (ageing and multicultural societies) and health (obesity and diabetes) can also explain why some countries have rates of less than ten per million, while Western Europe and the USA are in the hundreds.

Finally, it is important to keep in mind that all those numbers are not absolutely reliable, as significant differences in diagnostic practice and recording have been observed around the world.



There are still significant differences when comparing western countries with each other.

Belgium has the highest COVID-19 mortality rate in the world, at 763 per million, while Denmark and Germany are faring much better.

When researchers decided to compare the data with a map of the flu vaccination their findings were sobering. Pediatrician Alan Cunningham explains: “Such an observation may seem counter-intuitive, but it is possible that influenza vaccines alter our immune systems non-specifically to increase susceptibility to other infections; this has been observed with DTP and other vaccines.”(4)

It turns out that the countries with highest death rates (Belgium, Spain, Italy, UK, France, USA) had all orchestrated large vaccination campaigns specifically targeting their elderly population against the flu. Denmark and Germany, with lower use of the flu vaccine, have considerably lower COVID-19 mortality rates.

Although science should welcome data, and welcome any study shedding light to understand it meaningfully, looking at the possible correlation between the flu vaccination and the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic remains highly controversial: “Those who campaign against vaccination are campaigning against science. The science is settled…Those who have promoted the anti-vaccination myth are morally reprehensible, deeply irresponsible and have blood on their hands,” says British health secretary Matt Hancock.


"Settled"? When and where was the debate? Why such a dogmatic attitude?

In fact, instead of being "settled", the debate is raging! It has been shown that the onset of rheumatic disease after a number of vaccinations (including influenza, MMR, HBV, tetanus toxoid, typhoid, paratyphoid A and B (TAB), polio, diphtheria, and small pox) signifies that the vaccine may trigger persistent autoimmune response in genetically predisposed individuals, suggesting that they are at increased risk for rheumatic disease after vaccinations.(5)
In other words, vaccines can lower their immune defenses against diseases other than those covered by vaccination.
True scientific attitude presupposes an openness to the various hypotheses proposed. But conflicts of interest, the profitability of vaccination campaigns, and the political agendas of certain politicians are far more powerful levers than the scientific ethics which our "expert" lecturers seem to be entirely lacking.


At a minimum, intellectual honesty would be to recognize that the figures put forward by "experts" at the start of the pandemic were based on nothing.

On March 15th, as the first cases emerged, Dr. Anthony Fauci of the National Institute of Allergy & Infectious Diseases, predicted that 21 million Americans would be hospitalized with 1.7 million deaths. Three months later, less than 100,000 deaths have been reported, and this number is probably inflated, since many doctors have reported being “pressured” to classify many deaths as COVID-19, without any test being performed.(6)

No scientific evidence was needed for these terrifying numbers. Just like those hubristic economists before the 2008 global financial crisis, our health experts are now making mathematical models to fit their preconceived notions, indifferent to the economic and emotional carnage they are causing. The best we can do for now is to boost our immune system by going outside as much as possible (YES, fresh air is good for you!), enjoy the sun as much as you can (YES, Vitamin D deficiency weakens your immune system), and take two cones of RNA fragments a week (YES, they help create white blood cells and platelets, and have been shown in a clinical trial to be safe and effective even for vulnerable people under chemotherapy).(7) In my opinion is this is the best you can do to prepare your immune system to overcome anything, including any mandatory vaccination.

Beating COVID-19

COVID-19 Testimonial

COVID-19 Testimonial: Thank you A. D. for this Testimonial About Beating the Coronavirus, Precious for the Whole Community


Dear Team,

Five days after my 90-year-old mother had a CT scan in the hospital, she developed symptoms of the coronavirus (COVID-19). Once she became ill, my sister and I took care of her and we got infected.

We started to fight the virus without any medicine and my sister had a fever that did not give up, recurrent morning diarrhea and we both had immeasurable tiredness, until, following your answer to my email, we decided to take Pao pereira at the rate of 3 capsules 3 times a day.

We wanted to let you know that the day after the first dose, the fever and diarrhea disappeared and so did this enormous fatigue that overwhelmed us. Our condition keeps improving and 20 days after the onset of the symptoms, we can walk 30 to 40 minutes without fatigue.

Thank you for all that you do.

Best regards,


Let's rally together to stay healthy and safe, not only during the COVID-19 pandemic, but always. We are here to help.

Pao pereira is a natural, non-toxic plant extract originally researched by Dr. Beljanski and has been helping cancer patients maintain strong immune systems for over 40 years. It has been proven to have anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties.
We shared this testimonial because this is what we know Pao pereira can do. Our dream is that the work of Dr. Beljanski would help so many people with ailments beyond cancer.

We are here to answer your calls. We are here to listen to what you have done to tend to illness, cancer and chronic conditions. 

Our dream is to help more people like A.D. and her family.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C Benefits

The “Not Enough Hidden” Vitamin C Benefits

Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that humans are unable to synthesize. Vitamin C benefits for the body are vast. Since Vitamin C is essential to numerous enzymatic reactions, as well as a potent antioxidant, it is important to obtain it from the diet.

Studies in the 1970s and 1980s conducted by Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling, and colleagues suggested that large doses of Vitamin C could be helpful to terminal cancer patients (1). Not surprisingly, and as anything else that is not expensive and seem to help cancer patients, controversy surrounding the efficacy of vitamin C in cancer treatment ensued.

Beside the use for cancer patients, Vitamin C has also been widely used for decades to boost immunity during cold and flu season or to treat viral infections. Indeed Vitamin C affects several components of the human immune system. In vitro, Vitamin C has been shown to stimulate both the production (2-6) and function (7,8) of leukocytes, those white blood cells which are at the core of our immune system and help us fight back when a threat is lurking.

Could Vitamin C be Effective Against the Coronavirus (COVID-19)?

A 2019 review article published in the European Journal of Microbiology and Immunology reports that the “potent antioxidant, immunomodulatory, and anti-infectious effects of Vitamin C have been known since the 1930s” and that Vitamin C has antimicrobial, antibacterial, antiviral, anti-parasitic and anti-fungal properties.

The Shanghai government in early March announced its official recommendation that COVID-19 should be treated with high doses of Vitamin C, from 4000 to 16,000 mg per day administered by IV. According to Dr. Richard Cheng, a US board-certified specialist in anti-aging medicine reporting from China, “Early and sufficiently large doses of intravenous Vitamin C are critical. Vitamin C is not only a prototypical antioxidant, but also involved in virus killing and prevention of viral replication.”

Is the News Well Received by the Scientific Community?

No, just like for the use of Vitamin C against cancer, it is pushing back against the use of Vitamin C against a virus.

On social media, there have been reports that the World Health Organization (WHO) has convened meetings with Facebook, Amazon, Google and more to stop coronavirus (COVID-19) “misinformation”. Information about the anti-infectious benefits of Vitamin C is listed as misinformation.

As reported in the January 2016 issue of Pharmaceutical Technology (9) only one-quarter of WHO’s funding comes from member states, while 75% of the WHO’s budget is from pharmaceutical companies and related interests, with The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation being the biggest founder. Its donations even exceed those of any individual member state.

In 2017, India’s National Technical Advisory Group on Immunization (NTAGI) severed its ties with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. According to India Times (10) “There were questions about the Gates Foundation’s ties with pharmaceutical companies and the possible influence this may have on the country’s vaccination strategy.” The Indian Health Ministry confirmed that the NTAGI would from there on be fully funded by the central government instead.

Today, we have Gates, a key founder of WHO, calling for a 10-week or longer shutdown of the U.S. and the rapid building of brand new vaccine manufacturing facilities to handle the manufacturing of billions of doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Who benefits and who loses by the implementation of those two recommendations?

Could that have anything to do with poo-pooing Vitamin C? Think about it.

How To Stay Healthy During COVID-19

Dr. Beljanski's Antiviral Strategy

A Message from Sylvie Beljanski, Vice President of The Beljanski Foundation

Dear Clients & Friends,
While our country is in the middle of an unprecedented healthcare challenge, we here at The Beljanski Foundation wanted to reach out to you in hopes that you, your family, and loved ones are all well during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.
More than ever, we want to reaffirm our commitment to provide you with information and support to help you maintain and even improve your well-being.
Sylvie Beljanski The Beljanski Foundation Vice President

Sylvie Beljanski

For almost 40 years, the late Prof. Mirko Beljanski studied DNA and RNA biology and made numerous discoveries, providing great scientific contributions to our understanding of basic life processes, cancer, viral illnesses and autoimmune diseases. His work also has major practical implications in supporting normal physiological functions and improving one’s health.

Dr. Mirko Beljanski’s research provided us with a three step approach to fight viruses:

  1. Strengthen the Immune System
  2. Inhibit Viral Duplication
  3. Destruction of Infected Cells

Strengthen Your Immune System

Pathogens range from viruses to parasitic worms and sometimes they change themselves (mutate) to keep infecting and replicating in their hosts despite treatments.

When we encounter a pathogen, whatever it is, we want to keep it outside our bodies. Our skin is our first line of defense. Hence the recommendation of washing our hands.

Then comes the other physical barriers -- that will help us destroy the pathogen (stomach acid), or help us expel it (tears, mucus).

But sometimes, the invader makes its way within. Your immune system is then called to the rescue. Its job is to protect you against harmful pathogens (like bacteria and viruses), and limit damage from noninfectious agents (like sunburn or cancer). But what if you don’t have a strong immune system? This is why all whose immune systems are weakened, including adults and children with serious chronic health conditions (including cancer) are at greater risk of developing serious complications from COVID-19 (coronavirus).

The immune system is composed of a variety of cells and cell signals, working together to prevent and cure infections. All of these immune cells derive from stem cells in the bone marrow.

Individuals undergoing chemotherapy often see their white blood cells damaged by the treatment, leading to the weakening of their immune systems. As Dr. Mirko Beljanski was looking into helping individuals whose white blood cells have been damaged by chemotherapy, he developed small RNA fragments that can prime the replication of DNA in bone marrow stem cells. The bone marrow, in turn, creates all the lines of white blood cells that soldier our immune system. In a clinical trial at Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA), where the studied population was cancer patients with very weakened immunity, these RNA fragments proved to be a breakthrough: no toxicity, no side effects, and a better immune system.

Inhibit Viral Duplication

Viruses are perfect parasites. Outside a living cell, a virus is a dormant particle, not able to reproduce itself. Only when it enters a host cell, it goes into action by hijacking the cellular processes. DNA viruses (like the poxvirus) can replicate in the host cell. RNA viruses, including COVID-19, need to infect cells by injecting RNA into the cytoplasm of the host cell and then using their own transcription enzyme (reverse transcriptase) to create DNA from viral RNA templates. From then on, the infected cell will produce virally encoded protein that will replicate the virus’s genetic material and generate new viruses.

As a young researcher, Dr. Mirko Beljanski spent several years working with 1959 Nobel Prize Winner Severo Ochoa. Ochoa was recognized for his discovery of an enzyme in bacteria called polynucleotide phosphorylase, which catalyzed the synthesis of ribonucleic acid (RNA). This work led Mirko Beljanski to further study, and eventually to re-create the conditions whereby the hereditary information contained in genes is translated. (2) In the process, he showed how some metals may inhibit or stimulate the reverse transcriptase enzyme. (3)

Metals are indispensable for DNA synthesis and a host of metabolic processes. Iron in particular is necessary for blood oxygenation. A depletion in iron prevents proper enzymatic activity and leads to anemia. But too much iron will promote reverse transcriptase activity, leading to increased viral duplication. Excess iron can also promote cancer cell growth.

Heavy metals are a common source of toxicity. They are in many of the products we use every day, including the water we may drink. When fighting a viral pandemic, it is time to limit any chance of heavy metal overload. It is actually a perfect time to consider a good heavy metal detoxification through oral chelation.

Destruction of the Infected Cells

In the 1980s, Dr. Beljanski studied an extract of Pao pereira (Pau pereira, at the time called “PB-100” Produit Beljanski 100mg), made from the bark of a tree that grows in the Amazon Rain Forest.
Dr. Beljanski showed that Pao pereira (Pau pereira) could inhibit the replication of RNA viruses, in different species, ranging from plants (TMV), to birds (AEV) and cats (FIV). (4) That led him to work on the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), also an RNA virus. The results of a clinical trial performed on people infected with HIV and treated orally with PB-100 for 12 months, were published in 1994. This study demonstrated the safety of the extract, the improvement of lymphocyte sub-populations (T4 / T8 ratio), as well as other positive indications. (5)
This broad spectrum anti-viral action results from inhibition of reverse transcriptase in those cells infected by the RNA viruses. COVID-19 (coronavirus) is known to be an RNA virus, but no study has been made possible at this time to test the effectiveness of Pao pereira (Pau pereira).
Since Dr. Mirko Beljanski published his results on the antiviral activity of Pao pereira (Pau pereira) in 1985, (6) numerous people have either tried to negate the discovery or unduly pretend they were part of the story. Since then, The Beljanski Foundation, through partnerships with various academic institutions, has obtained confirmation that Pao pereira (Pau pereira) also exhibits a broad spectrum of anti-cancer activity. (7, 8, 9, 10, 11)
For nearly 25 years, we’ve have built a brand with the intent to serve our greater community of employees, family, and friends when they need us most – whenever, wherever they are.
Please know that we are thinking of you as we are all in this together.

Hydroxychloroquine as Potential COVID-19 Treatment?

Hydroxychloroquine to Treat COVID-19?

With the very public announcement that an old anti-malaria drug could be effective against the coronavirus (COVID-19), everybody is re-discovering this disease, which has been for centuries, probably the most serious health problem facing northern Amazonia.

Malaria is a disease caused by a parasite of the genus Plasmodium and transmitted to humans through the bites of infected mosquitoes. People who have the disease usually have a high fever and shaking chills. Despite an 18% global decrease in malaria occurrence between 2010 and 2017, an estimated 3.4 billion people in 92 countries are at risk of being infected and the disease is often fatal.

Now, the World Health Organization is sponsoring a large international clinical trial called SOLIDARITY to study six drugs that could be rapidly deployed for the fight against the coronavirus (COVID-19), including hydroxychloroquine, a seventy year old anti-malarial drug.

hydroxychloroquine, covid19

Image from:

Chloroquine phosphate was discovered in 1934 as a superior drug than quinine to treat malaria. In 2004 it was identified as an inhibitor of the SARS coronavirus. The frenzy about hydroxychloroquine (a Chloroquine derivative thought to have less severe side effects) started with a declaration on March 16 from Dr. Didier Raoult, director of a university hospital institute in Marseille, France’s second city, regarding the successful testing of hydroxychloroquine for use against the coronavirus (COVID-19).

In a press conference, Dr. Raoult presented the results of a clinical trial in which he treated 25 coronavirus (COVID-19) patients with this drug. “After six days,” he said, “only 25 percent of patients who took this drug still had the virus in their body. By contrast, 90 percent of those who had not taken hydroxychloroquine continued to carry the COVID-19.”


Professor Didier Raoult

In light of the long record of use of hydroxychloroquine again Malaria, it is very tempting to jump ahead and claim that we have a cure against the coronavirus (COVID-19). It is obviously President’s Trump hope, as he is looking for ways to send America back to work as soon as possible. Not so fast! “We may have the right drug, but it might not be in the appropriate dosage form right now, and it might do more harm than good,” said FDA Commissioner Stephen Hahn, speaking at a press briefing, minutes after the President’s announcement.

Indeed, dosage and toxicity issues, along with side effects, are quite common with drugs. However, there is such a big, organized, push back against a drug which has been around for decades, that one can’t help but to “follow the money”, and wonder who would be the winners and the losers if hydroxychloroquine is ever recognized as a cure to the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Potential Controversy of Hydroxychloroquine?

No doubt that pharmaceutical companies would not make a lot of money on it, because it is an old drug already produced as a generic. In the eyes of pharmaceutical companies this is a major impediment, and they obviously have lobbied hard with some politicians to push back against the drug. Many politicians being just too happy to oppose President Trump, they welcome and parrot the arguments provided by the pharmaceutical companies.

And that’s how the collusion of money and power leads to a controversy, even though everybody is short of scientific evidence to back their position.

Some doctors specialized in infectious and tropical diseases, and who are familiar with hydroxychloroquine, have reported that it seems to destroy the virus, but in doing so, it also brings major disruption to the DNA of the patient. A little bit like a chemotherapy, that destroys everything, good and bad cells. Ocular toxicity, heart risk concerns, and hepatic dysfunction have also been reported as long-term effects with patients using the drug against malaria or lupus, but for the patient fighting the coronavirus (COVID-19) and under a ventilator, long term effects are probably not a huge concern.

So far there are a number of anecdotal evidence showing that when used for a short period, hydroxychloroquine may deliver the immediate response patients are looking for. In the meantime, pharmaceutical companies are advancing new molecules that they can patent and make serious money on. Chances are that several molecules will be approved by the FDA, and then it will be all about marketing. That’s where the generic drug will lose its market share to the newbies.

Pao Pereria: Natural Solution WITHOUT Side Effects

However, it is important to remember that for patients who are not in extreme condition, there are natural solutions, much more gentle, which are out there, with similar properties. For example, the stem bark of Pao pereira has been used for centuries by the native population of northern South America to treat malaria. Thanks to The Beljanski Foundation, a New York based non-profit whose mission is to study the health benefits of some natural molecules, Pao pereira’s anti-cancer effects are well documented, and there is published evidence that the extract has an antiviral effect, as well as an anti-inflammatory benefit.

Doctors Turn to Malaria Drugs as Potential Coronavirus Treatment

Malaria, Coronavirus Treatment & Pao Pereira

With the announcement by the Wall Street Journal, that an old anti-malaria drug could be effective coronavirus treatment, everybody is re-discovering this disease, which has been for centuries, probably the most serious health problem facing northern Amazonia.

coronavirus treatment

Malaria is a disease caused by a parasite of the genus Plasmodium transmitted to humans through the bites of infected mosquitoes. People who have the disease usually have a high fever and shaking chills. Despite an 18% global decrease in incidences of malaria between 2010 and 2017, an estimated 3.4 billion people in 92 countries are at risk of being infected with malaria and developing the disease. The disease is often fatal, especially considering that the disease is preponderant where access to good quality medicines including malaria drugs is highly uneven.

Now doctors and hospitals are testing a seventy year old antimalarial drugs on patients infected with the new coronavirus.

It all started with a declaration on March 16 from Dr. Didier Raoult, director of a University Hospital Institute in Marseille, France’s second city, regarding the successful testing of hydroxychloroquine for use as a coronavirus treatment. Hydroxychloroquine has been used for around 70 years to treat malaria, and its patent has long expired. A new patent would provide a new commercial life to this old molecule.

In a press conference, Dr. Raoult presented the results of a clinical trial in which he treated 25 COVID-19 patients with this drug. “After six days,” he said, “only 25 percent of patients who took this drug still had the virus in their body. By contrast, 90 percent of those who had not taken hydroxychloroquine continued to carry the COVID-19.”

Professeur Didier Raoult, coronavirus treatment

In light of the long record of use of hydroxychloroquine against Malaria, it is very tempting to jump ahead and claim that we have a cure against the coronavirus. Not so fast! “We may have the right drug, but it might not be in the appropriate dosage form right now, and it might do more harm than good,” said FDA Commissioner Stephen Hahn, speaking at a press briefing with the president and other officials.

Indeed, dosage and toxicity issues, along with side effects, are quite common with drugs. Not so much with natural extracts. And it so happens that the stem bark of Geissospermum vellosii, common name: Pao pereira, has been used for centuries by the native population of northern South America to treat malaria. A few years ago, I devoted an entire blog to the subject of the traditional use of Pao pereira.

In 1879, the journal Medical Times (Vol. X p. 276 – Philadelphia) published a two-page article devoted to the very satisfactory results obtained with the use of Pao pereira and quoting Dr. Torres Homem, Professor of Clinical Medicine at the Academy of Rio de Janeiro “There is not a doctor in Brazil who has not obtained good results from the use of this bark in the treatment of intermittent fevers.”

In 1887, in “le Journal de Médecine, de Chirurgie et de Phamacologie” (Bruxelles) published in “Nouveaux remèdes” the following note: “the alkaloid pereirine would be more effective than quinine against malarial fevers.”

Since then, Pao pereira, has been extensively studied by French scientist Mirko Beljanski for its anti-cancer and anti-viral properties.

Nowadays, the Pao pereira extract is available as a dietary supplement and The Beljanski Foundation has developed numerous scientific partnerships with several scientific institution confirming the activity of the extract on different cancer cell lines including prostate, ovaries, and pancreas, and even on cancer stem cells, linked to metastasis.

World Autism Day

World Autism Awareness Day 2020

As the world unites in battling the Coronavirus, we also wish to continue to recognize the very important events we have on our calendar.  World Autism Day is today, April 2nd and ironically it is a time to remind each other that there is a powerful connection to ALL chronic and epidemic level illness – a strong immune system.

Here, we wish to share what we have learned and where we are headed with our particular research that focusing on Autism.

World Autism Awareness Day: April 2, 2020

The Beljanski Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in New York City, is committed to the study and sharing of knowledge of effective non-toxic natural compounds that work both alone and in synergy with traditional Western medicine. These values, at the very core of integrative medicine, were very dear to the late Mirko Beljanski, PhD (1923-1998), the French biologist who uncovered the link between environmental toxins and carcinogenesis when he was working at the Pasteur Institute in Paris.

While the majority of our work has been focused on cancer, a number of doctors have reported some striking improvements in children with autism with the RNA fragments Beljanski developed to support the immune system.

These specific RNA fragments derived from a common and safe strain of E. coli. These RNAs appear to work by epigenetic reprogramming of the microbiome where RNA fragments are normally ingested in the individual’s gut. Moreover those RNA fragments have shown remarkable ability to improve the immune system by supporting natural production of white blood cells and platelets.

A clinical trial conducted several years ago at Cancer Treatment Centers of America with these small RNA fragments has shown safe and effective results for cancer patients who experience extreme immunodeficiency caused by chemotherapy. The Beljanski Foundation’s current goal is to investigate the effects of these RNA fragments on individuals diagnosed with autism.

The Beljanski Foundation has received numerous testimonials like the one below and is putting together a research program to study the mechanism of action at play.

Please Help Us Do More.

Please support The Beljanski Foundation. This breakthrough research is only possible thanks to your support.


Today our heart is with all autistic children and in particular little Bertrand. Thank you to his mom for this beautiful testimonial:

“I am sending you my testimonial concerning our 4th child, Bertrand born on 11/16/98. He took Beljanski’s RNA Fragments (ReaLBuild) for about 12 years under the direction and advice of a doctor who directed us to you. Even if it was not easy, Bertrand took his small dose as prescribed to him in order to improve his health.

You should know that Bertrand was not born with autism. As his parents, we suspect that it happened to him when he was an infant. When we brought him to the Hospital of Saintes, he had a temperature of 99.5°F and was given a large dose of antibiotics, which we suspect caused his temperature to rise to 107°F and him to suffer from pyelonephritis.

To this day Bertrand wishes to be a pastry chef. He makes very good cakes with orange, chocolate, yogurt, chocolate mousse, eggs with milk, quiches with bacon, etc. Now he is 21 years old and he lives a normal life. He goes shopping with us and additionally, he is an Altar Server at the Church of Notre Dame de Royan, where he is loved and appreciated. Thank you for helping our son take the RNA Fragments (ReaLBuild) doses to improve the connection of his neurons. I wish you all “Beljanski Team” a good day.

Anti-Inflammatories and the Coronavirus

Anti-Inflammatories: What Should I Use?

It may seem contradictory, but inflammation is a natural process necessary for the renewal of tissues, in the face of aggression. The damaged tissues become red, swollen and painful, because an influx of blood will evacuate dead cells and toxins. When the phenomenon continues beyond the time necessary to repair the attacked tissue, it is called “chronic inflammation.”

Chronic inflammation is the cause of many diseases, ranging from type 2 diabetes, to myocardial infarction, including cancers, asthma, and many neurodegenerative diseases. (1)

To stop the effects of chronic inflammation, many people use anti-inflammatory drugs. But synthetic anti-inflammatory drugs lower our immune system, which we absolutely need to protect ourselves from viruses and microbes in our environment.

What are the Main Anti-Inflammatories?

There are two main families of anti-inflammatory drugs: non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), and corticosteroids. These two major families are synthetic products, the benefits of which are offset by numerous side effects: 

  • NSAIDs

The most common are Acetylsalicylic Acid (Aspirin®, Aspégic® …), Diclofenac (Flector®, Voltarene® …), Ibuprofen (Advil®, Nurofen®, Spedifen®), or Ketoprofen ( Profénid®, Kétum® …).NSAIDs induce side effects.


  • Corticosteroids

These are used for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis or certain skin diseases…they also have side effects, as explained by rheumatologist Dr. Catherine Cormier (3).”They have consequences on the metabolism of bone, in particular they are toxic for certain cells which build bone. And at the same time, corticoids reduce the digestive absorption of calcium with an increase in bone destruction. The result is bone loss. ”

Many synthetic products sold today try their best to “copy” nature. Thus, aspirin corresponds to an extract of white willow, rich in salicylic acid, before being synthesized by the pharmaceutical industry. So why not use natural products directly? Especially since natural anti-inflammatory drugs will not diminish our immune defenses.

Where to Find Natural Anti-Inflammatories?

Natural anti-inflammatories are everywhere. They can be found:

  • In the form of essential oil (4) for a topical action (lavender or clove oil or even peppermint oil are particularly effective)
  • In the form of food (Omega-3, found especially in fatty fish)
  • In the form of herbs (rosemary, curcumin, blackcurrant leaves, etc.)
  • In the form of a liquid or gel (Aloe vera)
  • In the form of supplements (Magnesium, Vitamin E, Pao pereira)

In this last category, Pao pereira has just been the subject of a recent publication studying its mechanism of action to fight against benign prostatic hyperplasia (5). But Pao pereira occupies a very special place because this anti-inflammatory also exhibits anti-cancer properties. Thanks to the partnerships established by The Beljanski Foundation, the activity of Pao pereira has now been well studied and confirmed by many universities. These pre-clinical studies cover many cancers, including prostate (6) even metastasized (7), ovarian (8) and pancreatic cancer (9), and even cancer stem cells, responsible metastases (10). In addition, and particularly interesting in this period when everyone fears COVID-19, Pao pereira has shown itself capable within the framework of a clinical trial, of improving the immune state of an HIV positive population. The clinical trial followed the HIV positive population for twelve months in a hospital setting, and had all been very well tolerated. (11) 

The clinical trial, conducted in 1994, concluded that Pao pereira was effective (called at the time “PB 100” by Dr. Mirko Beljanski and is now known as Pao V “FM”, in memory of François Mitterrand. The product helped finish his second term as the President of France, as reported by Dr. Gubler in his book – “The Big Secret”). At the time, any discovery that challenged AZT’s monopoly on the treatment of AIDS was ruthlessly destroyed, and the successes won with cancer caused trouble for Dr. Mirko Beljanski.

But maybe it’s time to put an end to the controversies and fully appreciate the properties of this extract, which is anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer and antiviral all at the same time?

Fighting Coronavirus COVID-19

Fighting The Coronavirus Outbreak


What does COVID-19 resemble?

As soon as studies reported that sequences in the coronavirus COVID-19 genome closely resemble those of the HIV virus (1) (2), pharmaceutical companies rushed to see how to “recycle” their stock of anti-HIV drugs and find a new application for their aging patents. (3)

What will our bodies respond to?

Those who are looking for a natural and non-toxic approach to fighting the coronavirus outbreak will be happy to learn that in 1994, a clinical trial concluded the safety and effectiveness of the pao pereira extract (called the “PB 100” era by Dr. Mirko Beljanski and is now known as Pao V “FM”, in memory of former French President François Mitterrand. This product helped Mitterrand finish his second term, as reported by Dr. Gubler in his book – prohibited – “the Big Secret”). This clinical trial, the results of which were published (4), concluded that this natural extract had improved the immune status of an HIV positive population followed in the hospital for 12 months, and had been very well tolerated.

This result was hardly surprising, since it is a part of years of research conducted by Dr. Mirko Beljanski and his team on multiple RNA viruses, all treated with pao pereira. (5)

Thanks to the work of The Beljanski Foundation, pao pereira’s activity on many cancers, including prostate (6) (even metastasized) (7), ovarian (8), pancreatic (9), and even on cancer stem cells responsible for metastases (10), has now been the topic of numerous pre-clinical studies and confirmed by many universities throughout the world.

What kind of virus is it?

However, pao pereira’s activity in the field of cancer should not, during this difficult period, make us forget its remarkable anti-viral properties on many RNA viruses. Remember, there is still a lot that we do not know about the Coronavirus COVID-19, and in particular its long-term effects, there is at least one thing that we know: it is an RNA virus.

Angels & Champions for Cancer Research: Beljanski Foundation Fundraising Photos


It was a pleasure to be with you on December 3rd for our 20th Anniversary Fundraising Event, Angels & Champions for Cancer Research. We hope you enjoyed the event and now understand a little bit better what The Beljanski Foundation is about, has accomplished so far, and how we are working on helping more people with cancer and other autoimmune diseases in the future.

Dr. John Hall, director of research for The Beljanski Foundation, gave an overview of the Foundation’s new research project on the deadliest skin cancer, melanoma. An extract of green teas with impressive anti-cancer potential shows activity against melanoma cancer cells. This green tea extract will be combined with Beljanski’s golden leaf Ginkgo extract in a topical preparation to promote healthy skin and help prevent cancer. Already known for prevention and treatment of skin fibrosis, the Ginkgo extract may also give protection against skin cancer. Indeed, Dr. Hall proposed experiments to reveal a specific anti-melanoma effect of the Ginkgo extract—an extremely promising therapeutic approach.

If you have any questions about the research we are conducting and our fundraising efforts to support this research, please reach out to us at
