An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells by not feeding it with the foods it needs to multiply.

For approximately 2,000 years, Maca has been an important traditional food and medicinal plant in the Andes of Peru and Bolivia, where it is well-known and highly respected for is medicinal qualities. The Peruvians regard it as a highly nutritious, energy enhancing food, and as a medicine that increases strength, endurance. Ancient Inca Imperial Warriors reputably ate Maca before a battle to increase their strength and power.
Maca has been used for centuries to increase energy and fertility, and has a reputation as an aphrodisiac.
It is popular with menopausal women to prevent and treat the unpleasant symptoms of menopause, and can also be used during the child bearing years to regulate the menstrual cycle.
As with all herbs, avoid in pregnancy unless specifically recommended to you by a qualified herbalist.

The blood of healthy persons is more alkaline in nature, with a pH of about 7.35 to 7.45
Babies’ blood is also more alkaline than acidic
As adults mature their blood becomes usually more acidic
According to a study of 600 cancer patients, of their bodily fluid, 85% of the patients are acidic .
Therefore, how to maintain the a weakly acidic nature of our body is the first step for moving far away from diseases.
a) meat, dairy products, eggs, beef, ham, etc. are acidic food
b) taking too much acidic food will cause the blood to become acidic and viscous, making it difficult for it to flow to the end of blood vessels, leading to cold feet or knee, stiff shoulders and insomnia..
c) It is more suitable to have a diet which are primarily vegetables with algae.
a) Irregular pace in life will lead to mental and physical stress
b) According to statistics, people who sleep late are more likely to have cancer than normal persons, by as much as 5 times.
c) Human beings originally lead a life with regular tempo in this world, it is not possible to store up sleep or food and not possible to change the order of living by mixing up days and nights.
d) Human organs are controlled by the autonomic nerves, and during day time it is mainly sympathetic nerves activities, and at night it is mainly the parasympathetic nerves which are functioning. If this order is disturbed and reversed, then diseases will result.
a) Civilised society brings stresses
b) Job related or mental stresses
c) A person suffers mental stress, when the stress is removed and the person relaxes, sometimes this may lead to death, referred to as the syndrome of imperfect adrenal cortex function.
a) Before any operation it would be necessary to check to see if the renal cortex does function normally. If the adrenal cortex is lacking, or if the stress imposed by the operation exceeded the ability of adrenal cortex to cope, it could lead to death or other undesirable impacts.
b) If it noted that patient’s face is puffy, it would be necessary to enquire in detail the patient’s medical history and medication status. For patients taking adrenal cortical hormone, extra care should be exercised when administering acupuncture.
c) Stress due to physical labour or exercise in excess, whole night card games, driving etc. should be avoided as much as possible
Lastly, one should take care of oneself but should also be caring about others.

More that 30 years ago, a Mr Zhang who worked in the public sales department of a Taipei Brewery, participated in the brewery overseas study selection examination, and passed with flying colours.
Before going overseas, during the physical examination at a public hospital, it was discovered that he had a tumour growth in his lung of the size of a child’s fist, and therefore was not able to go overseas to study.
The greatly disappointed Mr Zhang had always been suspicious that the diagnosis was wrong. So he went to another hospital for a check-up, the result confirmed that previous diagnosis was not in error.
For the youthful and healthy Mr Zhang to be stricken down with such terminal illness, in his despair, he rang his old classmate who at the time was Taidong County Government, Huangsun County Mayor’s secretary, Mr Wei.
Mr Weil rushed to Taipei during his rest day on a Sunday to see Mr Zhang.
Mr Zhang discussed with Mr Wei in details his despair and pessimism, and entrusted his friend regarding his affairs after his death.
Coincidentally, Mr Wei was a good friend of Dr Lu Geling, who was in-charge of the Maijie Hospital, 1945-55, and specialised in the clinical research into cancer cases. He immediately suggested that Mr Zhang see Dr Lu for treatment. At first, Mr Zhang said he preferred not to consult anymore doctors, so as not to add further to his misery.
But Mr Wei told him that he had telephoned Dr Lu before to seek his advice, and had already arranged an appointment. Mr Zhang felt obligated and went with Mr Wei to meet Dr Lu.
When Dr Lu met with Mr Zhang, Dr Lu said: ‘ Mr Wei is a friend and has introduced you and I to get to know each other. This is destiny. Thank you. Let me ask you, do you know why is cancer referred to as terminal illness?’
Both Mr Zhang and Mr Wei did not how to answer.
Dr Lu explained: ‘There are only two approaches taken by human to treat cancer to date. The first is to destroy the source of the disease. The second is the increase the capability to fight the disease.
But the strange thing is that cancer, whether we use Cobalt 60 or any other drug to destroy the cancer cells, before the cancer cells are killed, the good cells are destroyed first.
On the other hand, no matter we use what nutrients or supplements, before the good cells have a chance to absorb them, the cancer cells have taken them up and it simply speeds up the grow of cancer.
Therefore both approaches are doomed to failure, that is why cancer is terminal.’
Dr Lu continues: ‘Human being is most clever, they have successfully landed on the moon. But why is it no one ever question the above two approaches for treating cancer are nothing but self defeating dead-ends, try to seek out a third avenue?
When I was conducting clinical research in Majie Hospital , I had many opportunities to work with and being helped by many colleagues in the Hospital. I discovered that the blood tests of 100% of the cancer patients showed that the blood sample are acidic…
Those Buddhist monks and nuns who are long term vegetarians and live very close to Nature, their blood are prevalently strong alkaline and amongst them, there has yet to discover any cancer cases
Therefore, I boldly concluded that under strong alkaline conditions, cancer cells are not able to grow, or even to survive.
Mr Zhang, I would suggest that starting from now you reduce your intake of the acidic meaty dishes.
Take more of the alkaline food. In addition you can take green algae and soup made from water chestnuts with shell.
Modify your physical condition, and try seriously to have a regular life style which is close to Nature;
If you can manage to stay alive for five years, you should have no further problem. I wish you the best of luck.’
Mr Zhang follow Dr Lu’s suggestion and seriously alter his eating habits.
Every day, he ate green algae, drank chestnut soup, be optimistic and doing appropriate amount of exercise, and went back to the same public hospital for a check up. It was discovered that not only that the tumour did not increase in size, on the contrary it showed signs of shrinking, and surprised the hospital staff conducting the check-up as a miracle. Five years later, the tumour had shrunk to such a state as to be almost disappeared.
After almost 40 years, presently Mr Zhang’s health is totally normal, and he is living a very pleasant life.
Following Mr Zhang, a Mr Chen Tianshou, who was previously Head of the General Administration of the Taidong Provincial Hospital, was similarly diagnosed with lung cancer.
When Mr Wei heard of this, he told Mr Chen of the experience of Mr Zhang, and Mr Chen started to follow the instructions of Dr Lu to change his physical condition. The outcome was that he was able to recover fully from the cancer, just like Mr Zhang.
By this time, Mr Lu and his family had emigrated to the United States. After the two cases, he returned to Taiwan and met up with his friend Mr Wei.
Mr Wei told Dr Lu about the experiences of Mr Zhang and Mr Chen, and suggested that he let the two of them detail their experiences to Dr Lu in person, so that Dr Lu could publish a report on his self cure body conditioning method.
Dr Lu very humbly replied:
‘I am too old, besides, I do not have any clinical records of the outcomes. I would ask that you tell your friends and relatives, if they are agreeable, then please continue this experience and spread the words …
My friend and colleague Kimm Woodward has written a fantastic e-book called “The Herbal A-Z”. Kimm is a herbalist and an acupuncturist so is trained in both both Western and Chinese naturopathic philosophy and combines both of these in her book.
Kimm had a successful clinic in SE Queensland, Australia, for many years, and now that she has become an “Elder”, she decided to write down what she knows so it can pass into the hands of the next generation. Wanting her wisdom to be accessible to as many people as possible, she asked me to turn the raw material into an e-book and use my knowledge of the internet to “Get it Out There”.
The Herbal A to Z provides herbalists with an A-Z list of common ailments and the herbs traditionally used in their treatment.
It is a user friendly ready reference for practitioners and the curious. This apparently simple collection of information is the summary of hundreds of years of research, experimentation, observation and learning by well known herbalists and writers who collected the information originally. Kimm has collated and condensed it.
Even experienced herbalists will benefit from having this book in their clinic, because we all use herbs differently and there is always more to learn. Those newer to this calling will find it especially invaluable.
Many of my friends are herbalists, which means we often end up talking herbs when we get together and swap information. It has always been so with those of us drawn to this calling! I love learning new ways to use my favourite herbs.
I trained with arguably the best herbalist in Australia, Dorothy Hall, towards the end of her career when she had been practising for over 55 years and teaching for over 40 years. I have now been in clinical practice for over 10 years myself. In addition to this, I’ve been personally mentored by Ian White, founder of Australian Bush Flower Essences and Annie Meredith, an acuncturist, for my training as Senior Lecturer with Bush Essences. This work has brought me in contact with amazing healers and world class herbalists from all over Australia, the USA and Canada.
Even so, I learnt a lot when I read The Herbal A – Z. Not that this came as a surprise, I believe there is always lots more to learn about herbal medicine. One of the things I love about it is that I will never know more than a fraction of what there is to know. One can never be bored.
I immediately printed off a copy for my clinic and have been referring to it ever since.
My point is that this is a very practical and easy to use reference guide to have on your desk and you will use it daily.
Also included are additional pages:
It is one thing to get a person well – but they need to keep themselves that way and so ‘food as medicine’ is valuable information for you to be able to share with your clients.
After payment, you will immediately be provided with an electronic version of the book to save to your computer and print off.
