Breast Cancer

Breast Cancer

The female breast consists of glandular lobes and fatty tissue that are supported by connective tissue and ligaments. The function of the glands is to produce milk. Breast cancer is the second most common cancer in women and the second leading cause of cancer deaths in women.

Recent breakthrough in Breast Cancer Research

There is a natural approach confirmed by several studies. An approach that works by itself, as well as in synergy with chemotherapy. The approach is based on anti-cancer plant extracts and now includes a new anti-cancer blend of four green teas.


The Pao pereira (Pau pereira) and Rauwolfia vomitoria extracts induce apoptosis in cancer cells, but have no effect on healthy cells. Numerous studies have also shown that when the extracts are combined with conventional chemotherapy treatments the results are synergistic.
Dr. Mirko Beljanski published results showing activity of the extracts against two human breast cancer cell lines: MCF-7 and ZR-75-1. Learn more


Beljanski identified  four specific green teas with anti-cancer potential and these teas were combined to make the green tea blend, OnkoTea. When tested, OnkoTea was effective against bladder, liver and melanoma cancers lines, as well as two breast cancer cell lines: MCF-7 (estrogen receptor positive) and MDB-MB-231 (estrogen receptor negative, highly metastatic), indicating the broad spectrum anti-cancer profile.

When tested on breast cancer cells against other well-known teas, OnkoTea had the most potent anti-cancer effect. Learn more


Dr. Beljanski developed a preparation of small RNA fragments that provide critical support for patients receiving conventional cancer therapies, as do most breast cancer patients. Learn more

He also developed a specific Golden leaf of Ginkgo Biloba extract that has the beneficial effect of protecting the body against the negative impact of radiation (prevention and therapeutic action), with positive effect on the liver. This special Ginkgo extract is especially important for breast cancer patients because of the extreme sensitivity of breast tissue to both radiation and surgical damage. Learn more


Dr. Mirko Beljanski developed a test that allowed him to screen for anticancer agents that would selectively prevent the duplication of cancerous cells. Testing the Pao pereira (Pau pereira) extract on sixteen cancer cell lines, several multidrug resistant, as well as on five normal cell lines, he showed that the extract selectively destroys cancer cells, even those resistant to chemotherapy drugs, but it does not inhibit normal (non-malignant) cell multiplication. 

Using the same test he had used to discover the Pao pereira (Pau pereira) and Rauwolfia vomitoria extracts, Dr. Beljanski went on to identify specific green teas with anticancer potential. A blend of those teas (OnkoTea) was shown to be effective against non-metastatic, as well as against metastatic cancer cells. The OnkoTea blend is also active against bladder, liver and melanoma cancers indicating the broad spectrum anti-cancer characteristic shown by the Pao pereira (Pau pereira) and Rauwolfia vomitoria extracts.

Recognizing that most cancer treatments involve chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy, Dr. Beljanski developed additional natural products. A Phase I trial showed that Dr. 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, platelet transfusions, or suspensions. Finally, Dr. Beljanski developed a purified extract of Ginkgo biloba golden leaves that normalizes to a large extent the excessive RNase activity in an extract of irradiated human skin cells, but does not affect activity of normal human plasma RNase. This extract may be used for treatment of skin fibrosis.

The Beljanski Approach to Cancer

Now there’s 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 block the duplication of cancerous destabilized DNA while not 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.

What it says about OnkoTea

“In 1996, when Beljanski’s laboratory was ransacked by the French army, all the cabinets and drawers were forced open and their contents were turned upside down. A truckload worth of documents was seized and whatever did not fit in the truck was abandoned, scattered all over the floor. A few days later, Gilda, his long- time assistant, walked to the laboratory to assess the situation and bring back some order to what looked like a crime scene (which in many ways it was). At her feet, literally, she found a piece of paper, bearing what she immediately recognized as my father’s handwriting. It was a list of various kinds of teas, and, next to four of them the mention, “very anti-C.”

Superior Anti-Cancer Effect of a New Blend of Green Teas

EC Nutrition 14.12 (2019): 01-13.

Breakthrough Cancer Research by The University of Kansas Medical Center & The Beljanski Foundation

A research study by The University of Kansas Medical Center analyzing the anti-cancer effects of several well-known teas has shown that OnkoTea®, a newly developed blend of green teas, is most effective at inhibiting the growth of multiple cancer cell lines. This blend combines four different green teas: Ceylon Green, Bi Lou Chun, Organic Gunpowder and Dragonwell.

The anti-cancer potential of each of these four green teas was originally identified by Prof. M. Beljanski of the Pasteur Institute using the Oncotest, an assay he developed for detecting carcinogenic and anti-carcinogenic compounds. The anti-cancer activity of OnkoTea® was compared with the activity of several popular brands of tea including Bigelow, Kusmi and Lipton. The first tests analyzed the activity of OnkoTea® against breast cancer cells including one highly metastatic cell line. OnkoTea® was the best at reducing the number of breast cancer cells.

OnkoTea® also proved to be effective against liver and bladder cancer cells and showed impressive activity against four melanoma skin cancer cell lines.  The data shows the viability of the cancer cell lines after exposure to extracts of each of the teas that were tested with OnkoTea® “showing the best inhibitory effect.”

The studies were conducted in vitro and tested a range of concentrations of the teas (200, 400, 600 and 800 micrograms per milliliter) at 24, 48 and 72 hour time points as shown in the images below. Cancer cell lines tested: Breast MCF-7, Metastatic Breast MDA-MB-231; Liver HepG2, Bladder 5637, Melanoma A375, UACC-257, SK-MEL-2, SK-MEL-5.



Green teas are known to have anti-cancer benefits, but the new cancer research shows that the activity of OnkoTea® stands out for having the most potent anti-cancer effect.

Current models of carcinogenesis—how cancer starts—tell us that a gradual, but persistent exposure to carcinogens in our environment is responsible. Many of these carcinogens get into our cells, bind to our DNA and damage DNA structure. After chronic interactions with carcinogens the DNA is destabilized—no longer structurally healthy, and the two strands of the duplex are sporadically separated, making the cell amenable to the onset of cancer.

But if cancer starts by gradual buildup of DNA destabilization, might gradual consumption of a mix of green teas with relatively potent anti-cancer effect be part of the antidote? It takes years for the DNA damage associated with cancer to develop and the habitual consumption of a tea with documented anti-cancer effect can be part of a prevention strategy.


Tea preparations are popular for its anti-oxidant and anti-cancer effects. We want to understand how different tea products could differently affect the growth of cancer cells with heterogeneity. Here we evaluated 4 popular tea products on the growth of multiple cancer cells with different genetic makeovers, including 3 green teas and a black tea, namely Bigelow Tea - Green Tea with Mint (Bigelow), Kusmi Tea - Chinese Green Tea (Kusmi), OnkoTea® - Base Tea Blend (Onko), and Lipton Tea - Lipton Black Tea (Lipton).

Panels of breast cancer cells, melanoma cells, liver cancer cells, and bladder cancer cells were tested. The results showed that:

  1. The effects of tea on cell proliferation was concentration dependent. At lower concentrations (< 100 µg/mL), all the 4 tea extracts increased cell viability at 24h treatment. The increase of cell viability diminished, and inhibitory effects was observed as the treatment duration was longer. At a higher concentration range (200 - 800 µg/mL), all 4 tea products inhibited the cancer cells, typically with OnkoTea® showing the best inhibitory effect and Lipton tea the least.
  2. The inhibitory effect was cell line dependent. The melanoma cells A375 cells showed the best sensitivity to the OnkoTea® treatment, which harbors homologous BRAF mutation. The bladder cancer cell line 5637 showed good sensitivity to the tea products, whereas the liver cancer cell line HepG2 was the most resistant of all the tested cells.

Testimonial of Anne-Marie CIVIATE: Breast cancer, intestines with hepatic metastases

17 years of hindsight and I cannot say enough about the benefits of Dr. Beljanski’s extracts.

Affected by cancers: 

  • 2001 cancer of the right breast with radiotherapy
  • November 2002 cancer of the intestines with chemotherapy
  • October 2004 liver operation without heavy treatment

From 2001 until October 2005, everyday I took the Beljanski extracts. I continue my treatment using the extracts 3 times a year. It has allowed me to get to know and see my 2 grandchildren.

I will thank Dr. Beljanski all my life for this. 17 years of remission and all is well.

Thank you.

Breast Cancer Testimonial

Breast cancer treated with the Beljanski method

Following surgery for cancer in my right breast cancer, I had radiation sessions that left me with lifelong burns on my skin and very painful fibrosis. The flesh was so raw that it hurt to touch. And continually the scabs formed again, like a wound that never heals.

A few years later: kidney cancer, an inevitable intervention that subsequently prompted me to refuse compulsory treatment: having undergone a first mutilation, I was perfectly aware of the excessive care to come.

It was during this journey that I learned about the work of Professor Beljanski through Gérard Weidlich. I started using the GINKGO extract and my wound has closed, I can touch my skin again and my chest doesn’t hurt anymore.

I regret not having known the Beljanski extracts products earlier. I now have 36 years of hindsight, but unfortunately I did not know about these extracts until it was too late for our daughter, who passed away from cancer.

Now her and Gérard are in heaven where we hope that their will to lead a more humane medicine in the cure of so-called modern diseases will bring positive results.

All Green Teas are Not Equal in Anti-Cancer Effect


The results of a new study comparing the anti-cancer effects of several well-known teas has shown that a newly developed blend of green teas was superior at inhibiting the growth of two breast cancer cell lines, including one highly metastatic cell line. This blend combines four different green teas: Ceylon Green, Bi Lou Chun, Organic Gunpowder and Dragonwell.

Blend of teas selected by Mirko Beljanski

The anti-cancer potential of each of these teas was originally identified by Prof. M. Beljanski of the Pasteur Institute using the Oncotest, an assay he developed for detecting carcinogenic and anti-carcinogenic compounds. The new study confirms the activity of a combination of the four green teas against breast cancer cells.

Green teas have long been associated with anti-oxidant and anti-cancer benefits, but the new research shows that the activity of this specific combination stands out. When tested against other teas including Bigelow®, Kusmi®, and Lipton®, the four green tea blend had the most potent anti-cancer effect on the cultured breast cancer cells. Data in the figure below show the viability of the breast cancer cell lines after exposure to extracts of each of the teas tested (400 micrograms/ml). The green tea blend (OnkoTea®) was the best at reducing the number of breast cancer cells.

OnkoTea and breast cancer

A combination of four green tea extracts that showed anti-cancer potential in the Oncotest proved to inhibit breast, bladder, liver and skin cancer cell proliferation in the Kansas study. It will be interesting to determine whether the measured IC50s in the cell proliferation assays correlate with the level of polyphenols in the different teas and whether the standout results for OnkoTea can be attributed to its polyphenol content.

The results from the Oncotest indicate that the active polyphenols in the green tea extracts, catechins, bind directly to DNA and thereby could exert anti-tumor activity by preventing DNA synthesis in cancer cells. This may well be the mechanism of action for the anti-cancer effects of green teas. There have been several reports of the binding of green tea catechins to DNA. In light of the Oncotest experiment, it will be interesting to determine the chemical affinity of the binding of the tea compounds to normal versus cancer cell DNA.

This approach represents a novel and promising avenue for understanding the health benefits of green tea.

A DNA based assay for screening compounds for anti-cancer potential identified four green teas with impressive anti-cancer effect. An extract was prepared from a combination of all four of the teas and this extract was tested for anti-cancer activity in cell based assays in Dr. Qi Chen’s laboratory at the Department of Pharmacology, Toxicology and Therapeutics, University of Kansas Medical Center. When tested against extracts of other well-known teas, the four green tea blend had the most potent anti-cancer effect. This research was accepted for presentation at the 16th International Conference of the Society for Integrative Oncology and published in EC Nutrition.

breast cancer testimonial

Testimony after two breast operations

I have been followed by a doctor in Paris since January 2002 (PAO V FM + 2 times a week with carzodelain) and I am doing very well after two breast operations (cancer). I went to the Beljanski method because at the Huguelin center in Saint Cloud they gave me a drug (Tamofen Gé 20mg) to treat the mammary gland. According to my doctor in Paris, the drug I was given at the Huguelin center actually causes colon, uterus or ovarian cancer six times out of ten. Needless to say I am not taking that anymore and I am just using PAO V FM for treatment and I am doing very, very well.

I read confiscated health” and the last book of Monique Beljanski (but I dont understand everything). I wanted to let you know that I will be attending Mr. Sabbahs conference in Paris soon. And I would love to write about my experience in one of your next books that these extracts have healed my body and my mind. Thanks to you I have become very optimistic.

Testimonial synergy of treatment for breast cancer

Testimonial synergy of treatment for breast cancer

After various cancer problems in both breasts in 1988 and with complications in early 1991, I received a treatment prescribed by the oncologist: cortisone, radiotherapy and chemotherapy. That’s when I was lucky enough to have access to the Beljanski extracts (RNA Fragments and Pao pereria). Currently, I use both alongside chemotherapy.

At the end of June, I found out my general condition greatly improved. Edema and metastases have disappeared; however, I have to finish my chemotherapy which is going very well. I hope that your great discovery will soon be recognized by everyone so that we sick people can benefit from it!

Ductal Carcinoma Testimonial

Ductal Carcinoma Testimonial

We would like to inform you that this doctor who had the courage to send us this testimonial on 11/10/2003 died on January 26, 2004 at the age of 50, following a traffic accident.

On the evening of 12/01/2004 she was run over by a bus from the KUNEGEL company from Mulhouse, a town in which she practiced her profession and where she was highly respected. We are horribly sad to see such a tragedy happen to this beautiful person.

“It was in February 2001 that I was diagnosed with a 2 cm cancer called infiltrating ductal carcinoma classified SBR2 SBRM4/5 (severe) with angio-invasion. I will be operated on 02/28/2001. 7 days later I began using Pao pereira, Rauwolfia vomitoria and Golden Leaf of Ginkgo biloba.

Chemotherapy began on 03/22/01, i.e. 6 infusions spaced 3 weeks apart (endoxan + formorubicin + vincristine; at high doses. These drugs are old, cheap and very toxic at the doses used). To this protocol was added 100 mg of tranxene and 80 mg of cortisone.

The “Beljanski” extracts, continued without stopping, and was very beneficial. I never had nausea and a good appetite. When I got out of chemo, I would go to a good restaurant to eat and that very evening I would go dancing (with my beautiful wig on). The negative points noted were as follows:

  • very important memory lapses linked to the toxic assassin cocktail.
  • syncope by heart failure, 07/27/01 (because of farmorubicin according to the diagnosis of my cardiologist).
  • The Oncologist was a firm believer in the existence of brain metastases!
  • Being called “hysterical” and “stupid” by the Oncologist when I dared to say the name “Beljanski”.
  • Being accused of using illicit products to have so few side effects! (Which seemed totally abnormal.)

Always vigilant in the event of incidents, I kept my chemotherapy surveillance notebook with me at all times. We never know…

Radiotherapy began in early August. The planned protocol, extremely heavy, was 35 sessions on the lymph nodes on the left clavicle plus 35 sessions on the left breast plus 89 sessions of rays on the initial area of the tumor.

I only accepted 20 sessions which ended on 8/20/01 because I felt that was enough and I was starting to have difficulty swallowing. I was rightfully afraid of being left under a bomb in an armored room where the walls were thick. Proof that this treatment is far from benign!

I continued the “Beljanski” extracts by increasing the dosage of Ginkgo to 8 capsules/day because of it has radioprotective properties which have even been admitted by Professor Lucien ISRAEL, a well-known oncologist.

By deciding to stop the extra rays, I would have heard everything: “These are whims, think otherwise you will die …” 

As the trend was for the prescription of Tamoxifen and Femara for 5 years, I also refused. These substances are indeed highly dangerous.

Already on 02/23/96, “France Soir” headlined “For breast cancer, the most widespread treatment is carcinogenic” and “Liberation”, the same day, wrote on the front page “breast cancer – a carcinogenic drug – the World Health Organization has classified tamoxifen, marketed in France under the names Novaldex and Tamofen, on the list of products presenting a real risk of cancer.”

In addition, RNA fragments protect against hormone dependent cancers. It is a natural anti-tumor with no negative side effects. For 18 months, I took Pao, RNA Fragments and Ginkgo.

As early as January 2003, I started having an increased hand tremor with positive and negative emotions, then whole body vibrations and Parkinson’s like tremors. I was awkward in the movements, I would fall. I had trouble seeing. While I was thinking of hot flashes, these symptoms turned out to be severe hypertensive surges (12/22) resistant to conventional antihypertensive therapy and ameliorated by high doses of central antihypertensive drugs.

I unwillingly accepted these treatments until 05/31/03, the day of a “Médiprévent” congress which took place in Paris and where I obtained explanations of the symptoms.

Madam Professor Madeleine BASTIDE, Professor at the Immunology Laboratory of the Faculty of Pharmacy – University of Montpellier, “Lipids and phospholipids are the first to be peroxidized or denatured under extreme conditions such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy among others. Our enzymatic systems do not know how to metabolize such molecules and they are deposited on the vascular walls: atheromatosis and harder arterial wall by sclerosis.” 

However, my diet during chemotherapy and radiotherapy was rich in lipids with Omega 3 and 6 food supplements in order to protect healthy cells. MISTAKE: You have to use the enzyme regulator Ginkgo for a long time with a diet low in lipids and a moderate intake of dairy products (butter, margarine, cheese). It is necessary to take, at least one year during and after the end of the traditional treatments, anti-free radicals in good dose. Then the polyunsaturated fatty acids Omega 3 (fish flesh oil) and Omega 6 will be taken after 1 year from the end of conventional treatments.

Mr. Michel GEFFARD (Doctor of Medicine and Sciences – CNRS de Bordeaux – Specialist in multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease) explained during this congress how very reactive free radicals, such as nitrogen monoxide, binding to sulfur-containing amino acids (the worst is cysteine) deeply attacks the myelin sheaths of the nerves. However, in October 2002, my vigorously regrown hair was starting to fall out. 

So I took 3 capsules/day of Lobamine-cysteine. ERROR: never use the classics for hair (Cystine B6 / Lobamine / Cysteine / Forcapil etc). I now have a better understanding of the hypertensive and neurological abnormalities that I have had to deal with.

Throughout this ordeal, I was only afraid of one thing: dangerous oncologists, imbued with their “knowledge” and who, without consultation, order treatments that the body cannot withstand. Be vigilant because cancer treatment by chemotherapy and conventional radiotherapy is really the killer. The therapeutic escalation kills the patient but not the disease. See how long it takes to eliminate toxic waste produced by conventional cancer treatments. In order to protect yourself, it is important to use a maintenance dose of Ginkgo and RNA Fragments about 2 years after the end of standard treatments. You need to know how to protect yourself.

Testimonial of breast cancer by a doctor

Testimonial of breast cancer by a doctor

In 1998, Mrs. X., then aged 43, came to see me for a “lump” in her left breast. The ultrasound examination performed by me confirmed the cancerous nature of this lesion. Lumpectomy and radiotherapy is necessary to solve the problem.

Six months later, a new small tumor appears on the ultrasound examination, but this time on the right breast: same diagnostic and therapeutic approach, chemotherapy not finding any indication in front of this fairly moderate degree of malignancy. Five years later, in this 48-year-old patient, systematic mammo-echo monitoring found a new suspicious image on the right breast, away from the lumpectomy site. Histological examination of the tissue fragment taken by micro-biopsy shows a cancerous lesion with a fairly high degree of malignancy. The team of oncologists recommends a mastectomy and the rapid establishment of chemotherapy, especially since the MRI performed in addition reveals the existence of three other small satellite foci in the same breast.

Mrs. X., who was familiar with the work of The Beljanski Foundation, decides to postpone chemotherapy and surgery, and starts taking Pao pereira and Rauwolfia vomitoria daily. The “reasonable” doctors being unable to do anything for this rebellious man, and disarmed by this suicidal wait-and-see attitude, instituted a monthly ultrasound monitoring.

During the first six months, I was able to observe a progressive modification of the lesion accessible to imaging: it became better circumscribed, with better and better outlines, particularly at the level of its deep plane; in short, it seemed to lose its “aggressive” character. After six months, the image no longer changed in volume or appearance, it became stable.

The patient then resolved to mastectomy. During the operation, the anatomo-pathological examination of the excisional part greatly confused the medical team: after reading and re-reading the slides, it was undeniable that the lesion had become of low-grade malignancy, and no longer required chemotherapy.

Skeptics can always allege a spontaneous reduction in the severity of cancer… but the result is indeed there.

Madame X., six years after her last surgery, is doing well; she is regularly monitored, and all lights, clinical, biological and mammography, are turned off.
