Ovarian Cancer

The primary function of the ovaries is to produce eggs (ova). These endocrine glands also secrete two essential female hormones: estrogen and progesterone. The pair of almond-shaped glands are located at opposite ends of the pelvic wall on either side of the uterus. These organs are connected to the fallopian tube by the fimbria tissue. Ovarian cancer ranks as the fifth leading cause of cancer deaths in women and the mortality rate hasn’t improved in 40 years, making it one of the most difficult cancers to treat.

Recent breakthrough in Ovarian Cancer Research

There is a natural approach confirmed by several studies. An approach that works by itself, as well as in synergy with chemotherapy. An approach addressing the problem of cancer stem cells, those aggressive cancerous cells responsible for metastasis.


Recent studies conducted in vitro and in vivo at the University of Kansas Medical Center shows that Pao pereira (Geissospermum vellosii Allem) and Rauwolfia vomitoria extracts have potent antitumor activity by themselves, and a strong synergy with chemotherapy, helping to overcome drug resistance.

In vivo, Pao pereira (Pau pereira) alone suppressed tumor growth by 79% and decreased volume of ascites by 55%. When Pao pereira (Pau pereira) was combined with carboplatin, tumor inhibition reached 97% and ascites was completely eradicated”. Learn more

While Rauwolfia vomitoria, when combined with carboplatin, decreased tumor size in animal experiments by 87 to 90%. Learn more


Cancer stem cells are a type of stem cell specific to cancer, that is able to reproduce through self-renewal and regeneration into new tumor cells. Cancer stem cells are thought to survive chemotherapy treatments and provide the basis for tumor regrowth. It is critical to find treatments for cancer stem cells to prevent this disease from resurfacing in a person again and again. Research conducted at Kansas University Medical Center concluded that both Pao pereira (Pau pereira) extract and Rauwolfia vomitoria extract inhibited the proliferation of multiple human ovarian cancer cell lines in vitro.

Low platelet counts, a condition called Thrombocytopenia, is a common side effect of chemo drugs that damage the bone marrow stem cells that normally produce platelets. A clinical trial conducted at Cancer Treatment Centers of America confirmed that Beljanski’s RNA fragments could prevent thrombocytopenia by inducing the production of new platelets. Patients taking the RNA fragments had their platelet levels return to normal and chemotherapy treatments were completed without dose reductions, suspensions or platelet transfusions. The RNA fragments protected platelet levels in patients with many different types of cancer who were taking many different anticancer drugs. Learn more

Dr. Mirko Beljanski showed that a specific Golden leaf of Ginkgo Biloba extract has the beneficial effect of protecting the body against the negative impact of radiation (prevention and therapeutic action). Other beneficial aspects of the extract include: regulation of nucleases (pathology and chemotherapy change a cell's nucleases quantitatively and qualitatively); protection from side effects of gamma-radiation (powerful protective element against various side effects including fibrosis), the protection of chromosomes; and positive effect on the liver.

Natural Support for Ovarian Cancer

The Beljanski Foundation’s research program on ovarian cancer was developed with Dr. Jeanne Drisko and Dr. Qi Chen in the Department of Pharmacology, Toxicology and Therapeutics at Kansas University Medical Center. The results of the animal studies conducted at KUMC confirmed that the Pao pereira (Pau pereira) and Rauwolfia vomitoria extracts (both extracts provided by Natural Source International, Ltd/Maison Beljanski) reduced ovarian tumor size by themselves, but also worked to enhance the activity of the chemo drugs. Dr. Chen went on to show that the Pao pereira (Pau pereira) or the Rauwolfia vomitoria extracts combined with carboplatin worked especially well even against drug resistant ovarian cancer cells. The extracts have anticancer activities of their own, but also appear to overcome drug resistance.

Researchers went on to study the effects of both extracts on ovarian cancer stem cells and reported that both extracts inhibit these very aggressive cancer cells, whose development is linked to metastasis and cancer relapse.

Meanwhile, Beljanski’s RNA fragments as well as a specific extract of golden ginkgo biloba have shown to help fight the negative side effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

The Beljanski Approach to Cancer

The Beljanski Approach to Cancer is a natural way to combat cancerous cells while being gentle on healthy cells. Dr. Mirko Beljanski, PhD., now being recognized as the “Father of Environmental Medicine,” conducted ground-breaking research revealing the connection between toxins in our environment and the onset of cancer. And he was quick to reason that nature holds the answers for a cure to all cancers. Natural, non-toxic ingredients developed and perfected by Dr. Mirko Beljanski, selectively blocks the duplication of cancerous destabilized DNA without affecting healthy DNA. They work on every type of cancer at every stage because they are not gender or organ specific. Based upon the legacy of Dr. Mirko Beljanski, The Beljanski Foundation has been working collaboratively for the past three decades with scientists worldwide to research a natural approach to cancer.

The Beljanski extracts have now become the topic of many peer-reviewed scientific publications, from numerous academic institutions, confirming their effectiveness and providing a deeper understanding of their mechanism of action.

The Beljanski Foundation’s team is committed to sharing these findings with you, so that you can make informed decisions to help restore and maintain optimal health.

“I want to tell you that the results are spectacular. After 2 months, the post carboplatin chemotherapy scan shows almost all tumors melting, and most of them have necrosis, even though my initial response to chemotherapy was not great. This is an incredible result for stage 4 ovarian cancer.”

What it says about Ovarian Cancer

“Ovarian cancer is one of the hardest cancers to address. First of all, there are often no obvious symptoms at its early stage, and the patient doesn’t feel that anything is going seriously wrong. As a result, most ovarian cancers are diagnosed relatively late, which limits treatment options. Secondly, the tumor cells in ovarian cancers usually become resistant to the drugs chosen for treatment. The tumors may be reduced in the first stage of therapy, but when the cancer cells become resistant to the toxic effect of the drugs, they keep growing even in the presence of those drugs.”

What scientists are saying about Ovarian cancer


Hear directly fromDr. John Hall and Dr. Leigh Erin Connealy, MD

Every month at Healthy Tuesdays – virtual events organized to help you Feel Better Naturally – we feature healthcare professionals who come together to share information and advice related to holistic health.

In honor of Prostate and Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, this Healthy Tuesdays event featured Dr. John Hall and Dr. Leigh Erin Connealy, MD, experts in integrative medicine. Our speakers shared information and answered questions about the latest ways to naturally prevent, treat and beat Prostate and Ovarian Cancer.

We invite you to watch the event recording on demand.
