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

With 17 years of hindsight and experience, I cannot say enough about the benefits of Professor Beljanski’s plant extracts.

In my life, I was afflicted by numerous cancers:

  • Breast cancer treated with radiotherapy
  • Intestinal cancer treated with chemotherapy 
  • Cancerous tumor in the liver treated via surgery without other treatment

For 5 years I took Professor Beljanski’s extracts every day. I continue my treatment by using the extracts 3 times per year for prevention. Thanks to Professor Beljanski, I was able to get to know and see my 2 grandchildren grow up.

I will be forever grateful to Professor Beljanski for this. I’ve been in remission for years now and all is well.

Thank you.

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.

Recurrence of breast cancer operated on 5 years earlier

by Gérard Weidlich

Recurrence of breast cancer operated on 5 years earlier

Madame Madeleine PILORGÉ, who was a dynamic delegate of CIRIS, passed away on March 25, 1999 at the age of 80. Nicknamed Grandma Boom”, she was tireless in all areas… She will remain an example of kindness, generosity, dedication and love for others. With a lot of lucidity, courage, serenity and even a touch of humor, she herself had organized the modalities of her departure to The Lord”. Here are the last statements she made to CIRIS and The Beljanski Foundation: 

Every day I am a little more exhausted and entrust myself to the grace of God. I embrace you like each of the enthusiasts who revolve around CIRIS and who have never ceased to be filled with hope for the future. I am not dying of my cancer, because the doctors told me that it had disappeared and I even have a written report from the Institut Gustave Roussy, but from old age and residual toxicities from the many chemotherapies … ‘is eternal and my hour has come. ‘Up there’ I will continue to help you and I will again thank Dr. Mirko Beljanski for the 7 years of beautiful painless remission he brought me and which allowed me to enjoy my 5 children, 15 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren. I saw my pulmonologist stunned by the results he saw in my case. When I informed him about what I was taking in addition to conventional treatments, he asked how he can advise others to take the Beljanski extracts. 

The wind begins to turn…

Testimonial, ten years of hindsight on breast cancer

Ten years of hindsight. Ive changed my life and my job twice already. I am now settled in Bordeaux with a very fulfilling sentimental life, and a new hope for a professional life now that I have resumed paramedical studies. If there is one lesson to be learned, its that life is wonderful after cancer, even with its after-effects… as long as you open up to others.

In August 2006, at the age of 36, I was told of a cancerous cyst in the breast (7cm in diameter), but fortunately the axillary dissection and the extension assessment were negative. I did not feel capable at the time to take conventional treatments.

I lived alone with my daughter and I did not want to impose a sick, physically decrepit mother on her. So I refused chemo and radiotherapy, or rather I quietly disappeared from the doctorsfield of vision.

I only took Beljanski extracts, but not long enough, and above all I stopped the RNA Fragments at the same time as the other products when it is recommended to take it at least 6 months.

And then more difficult times work, the death of my father, the announcement of a recurrence...all of this in the same week… 3 months later, on September 27, 2007, I found out my recurrence was bad. I felt like the world collapsed once again on this famous September 27th when I heard the verdict: recurrence of breast cancer!

I was at the office and felt paralyzed…I had to come up with a plan. I had to announce this to my relatives and to my 12 year old daughter!

A few days later, the announcement was even more terrible: the breast removal was scheduled for the following October 12.

There, the world no longer turns in the same direction. I found myself a spectator, completely detached from my environment. I saw the film of everyday life unfold before my eyes without being able to take part in it, locked in a parallel world. How can I wake up from this nightmare?

Fortunately, nature took its course, and after the inevitable depression, it was time for me to react and get back to living and I took charge (damn it!).

Invested in the CIRIS association and The Beljanski Foundation, like my parents, I have known Beljanski for a long time, and it was natural that I turned to these treatments.

Above all, I want to tell everyone about the comfort that Beljanski extracts brought me during these terrible months (surgery, chemo and radiotherapy), and to defend my free choice of therapy. I therefore underwent a breast ablation on October 12, 2007 following the diagnosis of invasive grade 3 ductal carcinoma (triple negative and therefore non-hormone sensitive cancer) with muscle infiltration pectorals. Fortunately, there was no metastasis this time around. But without lymph node verification possible (axillary dissection had already been performed a year earlier), there was doubt about the extent of this aggressive cancer.

So I accepted all the treatments allowing me to hope to eradicate this disease once and for all (including obviously a different relationship to food). After the operation, I went back to the classic” protocol with 4 months of chemotherapy (3 courses of FEC 100 and 3 cures of taxotere) and 6 weeks of radiotherapy (30 sessions). I did not take the chemotherapy very well: vomiting, sleeplessness, loose nails…the hair loss was not really much compared to the rest. My body was so weakened that I found myself ill (angina, persistent otitis…) for long weeks, forcing me to take cortisone treatment for over a month.

Obviously, from the start, I have been using Beljanski’s extracts. But having to take 15 capsules per meal and being constantly nauseous, we lowered our guard and took fewer pills! For some reason, it was Beljanski’s extracts that I almost stopped…until my first treatment with taxotère.

The days after this injection were terrible. I had not been sufficiently warned and prepared for the side effects that appeared: intense pain in the fingertips and nails, loss of taste with a sore mouth and a tongue that doubled in size, to the point of having difficulty breathing! I responded to this by stopping the cortisone and greatly increasing the Ginkgo. Im not saying it was a good reaction, but it was mine as I had reached my tolerance level. Within two days, the side effects subsided considerably and some even disappeared. They were then contained, and bearable, with each course of chemo, allowing me to finish the treatment. Its heartwarming to be able to go to your chemo treatment with peace of mind.

I was also able to experiment with RNA Fragments for blood count. The day before one of my chemo treatments, my blood tests were not good and the treatment the next day was compromised (which I did not want at all, no question of prolonging these heavy treatments for one or two weeks). I took a dose of RNA Fragments in the evening. The next morning, before the planned treatment, another blood test, and this time, the blood count was good enough to have my chemo injection!

I was then reluctant to take radiation therapy. But being able to protect my body with Ginkgo and RNA Fragments convinced me to take the rays. My skin turned brown, sure, but I wasnt burnt, and I didnt suffer! I still have some adhesions today (feeling that the scar tissue has retracted and is stuck together) which I manage to reduce by combining regular physiotherapy sessions and Beljanski’s Ginkgo. Apart from these minor inconveniences, my results are good.

Staying in good health requires a daily effort for me: positive thinking, love for others, exercise, a healthy and organic diet, and regular use of the Beljanski extracts (Ginkgo, Pao pereria and RNA Fragments 6 months per year, one dose per week).

My warmest thanks to Dr. Beljanski and The Beljanski Foundation.

Anonymous testimonial of a breast cancer survivor

August 17, 1988: My physician had me undergo a mammogram, as soon as the hormonal cycle allowed it. 

Diagnosis: cancerous tumor of 4cm by 5cm.

It was at this moment that I discovered the possibility of helping chemotherapy with the Beljanski extracts, meaning I could confidently begin the first course of chemotherapy at Curie.

February 1989: fourth cure. 

“Everything happens as if it was magic. You really reacted remarkably to the treatment,” said Dr. Jouve, the chemotherapist at Curie. 

February 17, 1989: last infusion.

February 20, 1989: I resumed working full time and without any sick leave until June 30, 1989.

Of course we were surprised. There were no relapses of infection since the November alert and my blood count is astounding.

On February 6, 1989, just before the fourth treatment I had:

  • Leukocytes: 5500
  • Red blood cells: 4,280,000
  • Platelets: 190,000

During the mammogram carried out at Curie in February, the tumor was still visible, but the nature of the cells had already changed. They don’t look the same anymore. When Doctor Vilcoq visited, it was decided to make me undergo twenty-five cobalt bomb sessions, or fifty grays, starting on March 9th. Therefore I took in parallel with the radiotherapy treatment, I took the Beljanski extracts. 

It’s fabulous: I am working full time and I go for radiation five times a week. I am blonde and I not only have Viking skin but I cannot deny a Hermande and Alsatian ancestry! No burns, no traces. To complete the work, the radiotherapist from La Rochelle, in agreement with the Curie Institute, decided to have me undergo fifteen sessions of electron accelerator (or thirty additional grays) after a fifteen day break.

End of treatment: end of May 1989. 

Visit to Curie on June 8. Doctor Jouve, chemotherapist, is stunned. “It is not possible! To have such a blood count, you had a transfusion!” But no Doctor! The miracle is due to the Beljanski extracts. How do I explain that on July 25, when the radiotherapy effects continue for several months after treatment, I have:

  • Leukocytes: 3700
  • Red blood cells: 15,800
  • Platelets: 4,460,000

But there is more! 

June 28, 1989: Mammography of both breasts. 

“Why are you having a mammogram,” asked the dumbfounded radiologist. 

“But doctor, I think there is a problem,” I said. 

“What problem? Everything is normal! It's wonderful, there is nothing left!” exclaimed the doctor.

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.
