Cancer & Natural Solutions to Aid in Recovery

Statistics show that 38.4% of men and women will receive a cancer diagnosis at some point in their lives. Among these statistics, cancer has become a major public health concern and is the second leading cause of death in the United States. Below are several types to name a few from most common to some of the most rare.

  1. Breast Cancer – Breast cancer, unlike mesothelioma, is a very common type of cancer. It affects millions of women, and even some men. The disease begins in the breast tissue, and if not treated can quickly spread to other areas of the body due to the lymphatic system of the breast. Signs of breast cancer include a lump on the breast, nipple discharge, dimpling, or nipple retraction. Early treatment can increase survival rates. 
  1. Pancreatic Cancer – The pancreas produces digestive juices and hormones that regulate blood sugar. Pancreatic cancer is a disease in which cancerous cells form in the tissues of the pancreas. Pancreatic cancer has no early symptoms, so it can be difficult to detect in its early stages. Often times, it has a poor prognosis.
  1. Mesothelioma – This is a rare, yet very deadly form of cancer. For several years it was unknown what caused the cancer. It wasn’t until the 1940’s that researchers finally linked asbestos as the primary cause of mesothelioma.Mesothelioma is caused by the inhalation of asbestos fibers. When the microscopic fibers are inhaled, they enter the lungs and settle in the pleura. Over time, the fibers cause damage to the cells, and the damaged cells eventually develop into mesothelioma. It is difficult to diagnose mesothelioma due to the latency of the cancer. Patients are often given short prognosis after discovery.

Numerous types of cancers are being diagnosed every day and can be completely unpredictable in their nature. Some cancers show their tell-tale signs almost immediately, while others can remain dormant and undetected within the body for years. It’s important to stay educated about what signs to look for and always check in regularly with your doctor.

Cancer Treatment Options

Chemotherapy is a common treatment that doctors recommend to patients. Through this process, drugs are given to the patient in order to target a specific cancer. Although chemotherapy is not a cure for cancer, it is designed to help slow down the growth of the tumor.

Radiation, another common treatment, uses high levels of radiation to kill cancer cells and shrink tumors over time. Radiation not only kills or slows the growth of cancer cells, but it can also affect nearby healthy cells. There is a limit to the amount of radiation one can safely receive over the course of a lifetime.

With these treatments, side effects include hair loss, fatigue, weakness, vomiting, pain, and a number of other unwanted symptoms. It can help to compare the side effects to the benefits of the treatment.

Natural Cancer Treatment Options

In addition to these treatment options, there are also many natural alternatives to promote a healthy recovery. Some patients are choosing to complement their medical cancer treatments with favorable alternative therapies.
Pao pereira is a South American tree that has traditionally been used to treat malaria, as well as many other common ailments for centuries. Over 40 years ago, Dr. Mirko Beljanski researched and discovered that it has many anti-cancer properties. A recent study conducted by The Beljanski Foundation shows that Pao pereira inhibited pancreatic cancer stem cells.

Another recent study by The Beljanski Foundation investigated to see the effectiveness of the Rauwolfia vomitoria extract against pancreatic cancer stem cells. The research paper showed Rauwolfia vomitoria to also inhibit pancreatic cancer stem cells! This is truly remarkable given the difficulty to treat cancer stem cells and pancreatic cancer’s resistance to chemotherapy treatments.

The golden leaves of the gingko biloba tree have been recognized in China for centuries for their beneficial effects. The extract from the leaves enhances the cell repair process and promotes healthy cells, which is essential to patients with cancer. To learn more about how golden leaves of gingko biloba benefit people with cancer visit here. Dr. Mirko Beljanski showed how this extract helps people with cancer.

RNA fragments are another natural extract proven to help people fighting cancer. Dr. Mirko Beljanski discovered that they not only help maintain normal white blood cell and platelet levels, which may decrease to a dangerously low levels during radiation therapy and chemotherapy, but they also preserve normal proportions among the various kinds of white blood cells, notably those that fight infections. The Beljanski Foundation conducted a clinical trial which showed cancer patients who took RNA Fragements while undergoing chemotherapy all recovered with a stronger immune system and avoided thrombocytopenia.Agaricus blazei is a mushroom that grows in Japan and Brazil. The extract has been tested and has been shown to elicit medicinal effects. Not only does it act as an anti-inflammatory, but it also has anti-tumor properties.

Although studies are inconclusive as to whether black cohosh (also called snake root) prevents breast cancer, there are studies that show that taking the supplement may increase survival in women who are diagnosed with breast cancer. It is important to note that possible side effects may include liver damage.

Cancer, in its many forms, has a significant impact on society. With the proper awareness and treatment, patients can put up a good fight against cancer.

A Great Event at Maison Beljanski About Autism

As part of its Healthy Tuesdays series, Maison Beljanski hosted a special event dedicated to Autism. The Healthy Tuesdays series is all about empowering people with cutting edge, as well as practical information, about various aspects of Integrative Medicine. The autism event did not fail to deliver, with two great speakers, Dr. Robert Melillo and Dr. John Hall presenting different, but complimentary approaches to autism.

Healthy Tuesdays Autism Graphic

Just as we have seen the number of cancer cases growing alarmingly around the word, we are seeing the epidemic of autism increase. Today just in the USA alone, one out of 68 children is diagnosed with autism. The key symptoms of the disease are language issues (25% of kids with autism are non-verbal), tendency to aggression and hyperactivity, gut health imbalance, and sleep disorders.

Dr. Robert Melillo

Dr. Melillo, an expert in the field of functional neurology, with a master’s degree in neuroscience and clinical rehabilitation neuropsychology, gives a primer on epigenetics and the importance of environmental factors in the onset of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). According to Dr. Melillo, autism results from a functional dis-connectivity and immature development of certain areas of the brain, inducing a weak functional connectivity between the two hemispheres of the brain. Fortunately, these imbalances can be assessed and corrected through exercises and an elimination diet aimed at reducing the inflammation of the gut. It gives parents hope that lifestyle changes can improve their affected children.  As Dr. Melillo explains in his book, Disconnected Kids, OCD/ADHD/Autism/Dyslexia syndromes occur when “areas in the brain, especially the two hemispheres of the brain, are not electrically balanced, or synchronized.”

The Center on Park, located in New York, NY, provides intensive treatment and support to people with all sorts of psychiatric disabilities.

Dr. John Hall

Dr. Hall is the Director of Research at The Beljanski Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to researching natural solutions to help fight cancer and other chronic diseases linked to a loss of immunity. Dr. Hall presented early promising results of administration of a special preparation of  bacterial RNA fragments to children with ASD. At least two doctors in Europe have already reported marked improvement of their autistic patients with this nutritional approach. Those specific RNA fragments have already shown the ability, in a clinical trial conducted at Cancer treatment Centers of America*, to safely stimulate the formation of white blood cells and platelets in patients at the verge of thrombocytopenia, a common side effect of harsh chemotherapy. As chemotherapy induces a loss of the lining of the intestine, patients lose their ability to produce a decent number of platelets, the blood cells that help with clotting, explained Dr Hall. However, when taking this bacterial RNA fragments, they maintain the ability to produce those immunity cells. Based on early reports, the adjunct of those specific bacterial RNA fragments to autistic children’s diet seem to safely and successfully improve their immune systems and their brain function.

The Beljanski Foundation is looking to fund additional research for Autism.

Mirko Beljanski: A new article in The Optimist Daily!


by Sylvie Beljanski

We are pleased to share with you a long article written by Janet Rae-Dupree, entitled “Can a plant heal cancer patients?”, and recently published online in  The Optimist Daily1.

The article recounts the amazing story of my father Mirko Beljanski, Father of environmental medicine, and his groundbreaking scientific discoveries. You will learn “how Mirko Beljanski’s lifelong research path come to open new avenues for treating cancer and, possibly, preventing its development in the first place”.

Here is an excerpt of  this well-documented article:

“[…] Beljanski is one of the first molecular biologists to study RNA and its role in cell regulation. His work ultimately upended the previous accepted wisdom about what makes cancerous cells different from normal cells and brings us to today’s ongoing research at centers in the United States, where the plant extracts he refined are making advances against prostate, pancreatic, ovarian and even brain cancer and the RNA fragments […].

Beljanski’s career began at the same time that the field of molecular biology did, with the discovery of how DNA’s double helix stores and deploys genetic information. For more than 40 years, molecular biologists focused solely on genetics, protein expression and how mutations to genes could cause cancer. Study the “letters” of the genetic alphabet, the theory went, and you would spot “typos” that lead to cancer. Figure out how to prevent those typos and you could learn how to stop cancer in its tracks.

But Beljanski demonstrated that the primary physical difference between normal and cancerous DNA lies within the structure of the double helix itself. DNA in cancerous cells has unwound, leaving gaping loops and holes where the two curving sides of the double helix fail to latch securely to each other any longer.[…]”.

New article in the Townsend Letter: A Natural Approach to Cancer

The Natural Approach to Cancer


beljanskicoverweb1-copyThe Magazine Townsend Letter has published an article written by Sylvie Beljanski, the Vice-President of the Beljanski Foundation and daughter of Mirko Beljanski, Issue of August – September 2016. In the article titled “The Natural Approach to Cancer” Sylvie Beljanski explains that her father’s research has proved the correlation between the environment and its effects on the DNA. The environment, especially the one we are living in, with all the pollution and toxins for instance, constitutes one of the major causes of cancer. Mirko Beljanski is now considered as the father of Environmental Medicine for all the knowledge and progress his research brought to the war on cancer.

His dedication to find a cure to cancer of any kind with natural resources led him to discover natural extracts such as the Pao pereira, the Rauwolfia vomitoria, or the golden leaf of Ginkgo which help to re-organize a destabilized DNA.

Carrying on the legacy of Mirko Beljanski, and over the last 17 years The Beljanski Foundation has developed a research program with several high profile institutions to rigorously assess the anti-cancer potential of identified natural compounds.

All of those publications were published on peer reviewed Medical Journal and are available on (the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health).

Prostate cancer

Columbia UniversityPre-cancerous and cancerous cells at Columbia University Medical Center

At Columbia University’s Department of Holistic Urology, preclinical and clinical studies were conducted with two plant extracts, Pao pereira and Rauwolfia vomitoria on prostate cancer cells and on men with prostate issues.

Advanced Cancer cells resistant to hormonal treatment at Nanjing University

Nanjing_UniversityThe research team at Nanjing University used innovative techniques to demonstrate that the Pao pereira extract is effective even against prostate cancer cells that no longer responded to androgen deprivation therapy.

Pancreatic Cancer at Kansas University Medical Center

Kansas university

Research was recently completed at Kansas University Medical Center where the effects of Pao pereira and Rauwolfia vomitoria were analyzed on pancreatic cancer cells. Two new scientific articles were published confirming the excellent results of these studies and the synergy with conventional chemotherapies. Over the course of the study, the Pao pereira was seen to suppress tumor growth significantly, by up to 72% and Gemcitabine at the dose used did not provide any reduction in tumor weight, when Rauwolfia vomitoria alone decreased tumor weight by 53% at the daily dose of 20 mg/kg, and 46% at the daily dose of 50 mg/kg, compared with saline-treated control. By combining Rauwolfia vomitoria with Gemcitabine, the decrease in tumor weight was 56% at both Rauwolfia vomitoria doses.

Ovarian Cancer at Kansas University Medical Center

The scientific team found that Rauwolfia vomitoria was effective against ovarian cancer cells both alone and in combination with carboplatin. The combination decreased tumor size in animal experiments by 87 to 90% and a second study concludes that “In vivo, Pao pereira alone suppressed tumor growth by 79% and decreased volume of ascites by 55%. When Pao pereira was combined with carboplatin, tumor inhibition reached 97% and ascites was completely eradicated.

Clinical Trial on Thrombocytopenia at Cancer Treatment Center of America

Small RNA fragments that specifically trigger DNA synthesis in healthy bone marrow stem cells, were used in another clinical trial for platelet support. The data reveals that E. coli RNA fragments stimulate platelet proliferation in chemotherapy patients. The study also proved that the source from which the RNA fragments are prepared is critical. The study concluded that Patients receiving E. coli RNA fragments demonstrated a more rapid recovery in platelet count and higher nadir platelet count. None of the patients receiving the E. coli RNA fragments required a chemotherapy dose reduction due to thrombocytopenia.
