I recently came across this term, “nutriphobia” in an article which I quote below, and today I had living proof of its truth. A lovely lady who had been on my cancer program for several months and was making excellent progress was put on chemotherapy and told not to take ANY vitamins and supplements during treatment. To make a long and sad story short, she had to drop the program for about 10 months, her immune system is very weak and her condition has worsened considerably. It pains me to hear her so weak and I wonder, what if she could have kept her immune system strong? All I can do is pray that she can rebuild herself and get healthy again. It has been proven that supplements are beneficial and safe during chemotherapy and radiation but most doctors are unaware of this.

David Stouder, a health-food store owner in Redwood City, California and radio personality, coined the term “Nutriphobia” in describing a condition where otherwise sensible people think that drugs are safe and nutritional supplements are dangerous. As he puts it, “Nutriphobia is not a joke. It causes untold misery and poor health and even leads to fatalities. It is rarely diagnosed before considerable damage has been done and is commonly spread by doctors to their patients. Nutriphobia can cause a person to turn away from natural substances (vitamins, minerals, herbs, amino acids, phytonutrients, etc.) that can truly build and maintain health. Nutriphobia enhances the illusion that consuming synthetic pharmaceuticals (which, when prescribed and taken properly, kill well over 100,000 Americans each year) is the ‘scientific’ way to good health.”


Dead Doctors Don’t Lie

After my late son’s diagnosis, my good friend, Dr. Marshall Moss shared with me his vast knowledge of nutritional information related to cancer.  He then gave me the very famous Dead Doctors Don’t Lie tape by Dr. Joel Wallach. He told me that I will find it fascinating and entertaining and that it will be very well worth my time.

It was both things, but I became very suspicious that Dr. Wallach was not telling the truth, or at least not the whole truth. So I decided to do my own research to prove him wrong. What he was saying was too radical, and when it came to conditions and diseases that are considered incurable by mainstream medicine, he turned all those concepts upside down.

His advantage is that he was a veterinarian and an animal pathologist before becoming an MD, so at the beginning of his career he didn’t have the restraints of dealing with humans in his research.

To my surprise, I couldn’t find anything he said to be misleading or wrong. It opened my eyes and curiosity to the fact that our cells function according to what we ingest, we are what we eat. And the problem is not as much what we eat as what we don’t. The biggest problem is deficiencies.

After you listen to this recording please challenge me with questions. I will be happy to chat with you.

So Where Are the Bodies?

Vitamin Supplement Safety Confirmed by America’s Largest Database

by Andrew W. Saul, Editor, The Orthomolecular Medicine News Service

(OMNS Jan 30, 2013) The new annual report of the American Association of Poison Control Centers shows zero deaths from multiple vitamins; zero deaths from vitamin A, niacin, vitamin B-6, vitamin D, or vitamin E.

Two people are alleged to have died from vitamin supplements in the year 2011, according to AAPCC’s interpretation of the most recent information collected by the U.S. National Poison Data System. One death was allegedly because of vitamin C; the other supposedly because of “Other B-Vitamins.” As the AAPCC report specifically indicates no deaths from niacin (B-3) or pyridoxine (B-6), that leaves folic acid, thiamine (B-1), riboflavin (B-2), biotin, and B-12 as the remaining B-vitamins that could be implicated. However, the safety record of these vitamins is extraordinarily good; no fatalities have been confirmed for any of them. Vitamin C is also an extraordinarily safe nutrient. No deaths have ever been confirmed from supplementation with vitamin C.

Even allowing that the AAPCC data is correct (and we do not), two deaths in a year associated with vitamins, nationwide, is a very small number. Well over half of the U.S. population takes daily nutritional supplements. Even if each of those people took only one single tablet daily, that makes 165,000,000 individual doses per day, for a total of over 60 billion doses annually. Since many persons take far more than just one single vitamin tablet, actual consumption is considerably higher, and the safety of nutritional supplements is all the more remarkable.

To quote Abram Hoffer, MD, PhD: “No one dies from vitamins.” The Orthomolecular Medicine News Service invites submission of specific scientific evidence conclusively demonstrating death caused by a vitamin. Association is not causation; allegation is not proof. If there were such proof, the media would have had it all over their front pages.

If vitamin supplements are allegedly so “dangerous,” then where are the bodies?
