Boots, our cat, developed a huge, bleeding tumor --
probably from the GMO grains in "Friskies" cat food. We switched her to
organic food into which we opened and mixed pomegranate capsules, and
used the Light on her, along with healing touch (energy from God). She
didn't even allow it to be touched, but she loved the healing light --
she'd sniff it, then lie down with the tumor facing me and let me shine
the light on her for about 10-15 minutes at a time. It seems that she
could tell that it was helping her, and it probably reduced the pain, as
well as helped the cancer (along with the other things that I used).
The tumor eventually was pushed out and fell off, and the spot is now
totally healed over, with hair on it (moreso than in the above pictures
-- I just don't have a picture of her now.)
Below are some
pictures of our cat's tumor that initially was open and bleeding (prior
to pictures) and went totally away with 635nm red light for about 5-10
mins twice a day, and opening a 500mg pomegranate capsule
(www.swansonvitamins.com) and mixing it in its combination of organic
wet and dry food in AM and PM (2 caps/day).

How to Successfully Treat Skin Cancer (and Breast, Cervical, Colon and other Cancers) Dr. Robert Jay Rowen's Second Opinion Newsletter July 2007 / Volume XVII , No. 7
A few months ago, I told you the incredible story about a cat with severe skin cancer. His owner completely cured the cat using a hand-held laser device. At the time, there weren't any cases of the laser working on human cases of skin cancer. Now there is. And, in a moment, you'll see the results. They are absolutely astounding!
The laser I'm referring to is the one developed by Gerry Graham, DC. It has the incredible ability to heal pain, wounds, and now cancer.
Dr. Graham is the one who told me about the cat. He showed me pictures of the cat with its squamous cell cancer. The cancer had grown across its right eye and down into its right nostril. It should have been "put to sleep." But its owner is a vet. And he wanted to see if the laser could help. So he treated the cat using only the laser. Within several weeks, the cancer was totally gone without a trace. And Kitty's eye was completely unharmed.
When I saw the before and after pictures of this cat, I remembered something I learned in a book written by Randolph Howes, MD, PhD. (Utopia available at http://www.thepundit.com/.) He is my mentor on oxygen therapy. And his book shows how "free radicals" can be quite good for us. Well, in truth, we can't live without them. Our immune cells generate billions of them to kill bacterial invaders. Only when free radicals get out of balance do they become a problem. The antioxidants you take and eat help keep them in balance.
Another fact that most people don't realize is that your body is constantly creating immense amounts of electronically modified oxygen derivatives (EMODs). Some of these are, in fact, free radicals. But EMODs also include our friends hydrogen peroxide and ozone. They are extremely effective at delivering reactive oxygen to your cells.
All of your normal cells need and have a steady level of EMODs for ideal functioning. If the level drops too low, abnormal cells can proliferate. Cancer is abnormal cells that are proliferating non-stop. I've told you many times that cancer prefers a low oxygen environment. But if you can raise the level of EMODs in those cells, you can stop the proliferation. And even higher levels can cause apoptosis (cell death). That's what we want for wayward cells.
In the past, you could go to a special clinic that used photodynamic therapy in order to improve the levels of EMODs in cancer cells. Dr. Howes explained to me that the 635nm is a perfect wavelength to create one highly reactive EMOD in cells. But photodynamic therapy is extremely expensive. And you probably won't find many clinics willing to use it to treat your cancer. (You can read about photodynamic therapy on the Internet.)
But anyone with a 635nm laser (Dr. Graham's) can do the exact same thing for tumors the light can reach. It can activate normal oxygen to a particular reactive EMOD, which can enhance your immune system, and is toxic to cancer cells.
This means that the 635nm laser may be the fastest, simplest, easiest, and most convenient way to administer oxidation therapy directly to a specific part of your body! This concept could revolutionize healing! At least it sounds good in theory. How does it work in reality?
Well, we've already seen what happened with the cat. But now look at what happened to Todd Green. He's 37 years old and lives in Florida. He developed a basal cell cancer on his upper lip. His doctor removed it by biopsy three years ago. Everything was fine until two years later. In May 2006, something horrible came back with a vengeance on the same site. His dermatologist was not available for two weeks. And whatever it was, it was growing fast -- daily!
Quite frightened, he was scheduled for a bigger surgery to take it off, but decided to try the laser that cured the cat's skin cancer. He used it for 90 minutes daily for 30 days. Remarkably, the growth totally disappeared.
But Todd isn't the only incredible story. Peggy McKenna, also of Florida, developed a breast cancer with a huge mass in her left breast when she was 59. For two months, she used only the laser to treat the mass. The mass disappeared. And, as an added bonus, a knot in her neck totally disappeared too!
Obviously, this new laser science is stunning. Dr. Graham may have unknowingly stumbled on to a relatively inexpensive and absolutely safe way to do photodynamic therapy for superficial or other cancers that can be reached by the light. So now we have an easy-to-use treatment for pain, skin wounds, and any cancer that's on the surface, or just under the surface, of the skin. We'll have to wait for more evidence of how well it works for different cancers and other ailments. But if you have any of these problems, I strongly recommend you try the laser. It won't hurt you in any way, and it could completely heal you!
The lasers are expensive. But when you consider what they can do, I think they're well worth the price. The professional four-light model is $5,995. The two-light home unit is $2,995. You can order the laser from LazrPulsR Systems at 888-696-6532. ---

Erase Chronic Pain and Wounds in Days Dr. Robert Jay Rowen's Second Opinion Newsletter Vol. XVII, No. 1 January 2007
Anyone over the age of 50 knows pain and slow wound healing are common as we get older. Our joints may ache, headaches can become more common, and the pain from injuries in our youth can seem to haunt us daily. Bruises may not go away very quickly. Cuts can take longer to heal, and injuries may seem to hurt for much longer than they used to.
These are just some of the many problems we may encounter as we age. But what if I told you there is a device that can stop your pain and speed healing of just about any wound? You might think it was too good to be true. Especially when I told you the device looks like it came right out of Star Trek.
In Star Trek, anyone who was injured would go see Dr. McCoy in sickbay. There, injured crew would simply lie motionless on the table. Sometimes you would see a light on the body. Other times you wouldn't see anything. But somehow almost all of them miraculously recovered without so much as anyone touching them. Of course, that was fiction. What I'm about to tell you is every bit as incredible, but it's not fiction. It's very real.
You may know that I'm a fan of light therapy. I wrote a special report on the topic and have used colored light to heal many people. In fact, many of you have used that report and the colored filters that came with it to heal your own ailments. Some of the testimonials I've received are truly amazing.
Dinshah Ghadiali pioneered light therapy, as we know it. But science has pushed this marvelous therapy quantum leaps beyond anything Dinshah ever imagined when he first began experimenting with his colored lanterns. Today, we have the ability to heal in ways we never thought possible simply by using powerful light beams known as lasers.
Most science fiction uses lasers to cut and destroy. While certain lasers have some of those abilities (such as we see used in many surgeries today), others can have the opposite effect. Instead of cutting or destroying, these lasers can heal.
The technology has been around for a couple of decades. In 1988, I purchased my first laser for about $4,500. It's a huge machine, but it works remarkably well. Using that laser, I've healed wounds and joints with amazing speed. It's an amazing treatment I still use today. Most people never heard of this treatment thanks to the government. My machine was one of a few to get through production before the FDA stepped in and shut down the factory.
But now, 20 years later, there's an even better machine. It's FDA approved. It's small enough to fit in your hand. And it can treat most pain and wounds with just a few treatments.
I found out just how well this laser works a couple of years ago after a particularly strenuous cross-country skiing expedition. I hadn't skied since I left Alaska in 2001. The high Sierra conditions are worse than Alaska because it's a warmer climate, so the snow melts into slush. Hitting several of theses pockets, I went down many times and unknowingly wrenched my left shoulder.
The pain began the next day and continued despite my best treatment efforts. It was agony turning over in bed. After three weeks, I started getting sympathy pain on the other side. I was convinced my cross-country skiing days were finished. Eight weeks later, still in major pain, I met Gerry Graham, DC at a medical conference, where he had his laser on display. I took one home on loan.
Dr. Graham has developed the laser to operate at different frequencies. These frequencies affect different tissues in different ways. For instance, by switching the frequency, you can program the device to help ligaments, wounds, general pain, and many other ailments.
In just three days on the "ligament" program, my pain was down over 70% and I had no trouble turning over in bed. The total treatment time was less than 60 minutes (20 minutes a day). In a few weeks, I was free of pain. My shoulder strength returned to normal. One year later, I returned to the same cross-country resort, this time with much better conditions. I did over 20 kilometers of very rugged work in a few hours. No falls, not even a whimper from my shoulder, and I finished only 10 minutes behind my athletic daughter. I was astounded at the healing this device brought my shoulder.
How did this little device do it? I've told you in the past that our bodies are extremely sensitive to different frequencies. Some frequencies help our bodies. Others can do it harm. As you may know, light has various frequencies, which are based on wavelengths. Longer wavelengths, which carry less energy, are the colors on the outer ring of the rainbow: red and orange. The shorter, more energetic wavelengths are on the opposite end: purple and violet. But there are even shorter, more energetic wavelengths that are invisible to the human eye. These are the potentially damaging ultraviolet bands.
What we see every day are the many frequencies of light. They have random peaks and troughs in their waves, and travel in random directions. The waves are not parallel, and vibrate in several planes (not polarized). A laser is a light source where all the waves are the same frequency, polarized, and all the peaks and troughs of the waves are in phase. Most light striking your skin will be reflected off. If it didn't, standing in the sun would roast you in seconds. But because of how the laser light is designed, it can penetrate far into your body.
Once the light goes into your body, your cells pick up the light particles. These particles contain energy, which is then released into the cell. This process can almost instantly stimulate thousands of chemical reactions. This process is called biological amplification, and explains why the laser can speed healing so effectively.
The two most important factors in this process are the specific wavelength and the intensity of the light. It turns out that the 635 nm wavelength is the most specific to activate human tissue. That's the frequency of the color red. And the power intensity doesn't have to be much. You need only 5 milliwatts or less (my original laser was only one milliwatt). More isn't necessarily better. You can absorb only so much energy. Your eyes are a great example of this. Too much light is blinding!
The red laser Dr. Graham developed barely penetrates your body -- only two inches. However, that's definitely deep enough for therapeutic effects. And there's plenty of scientific evidence to support the clinical evidence we've seen.
In a recent study on mice, researchers found that wound healing dramatically increases. The researchers also found that the laser reduced scar tissue by 60%. And it also stimulated the regeneration of both lymph and vein vessels, which increase blood flow.
A study conducted in India found a 30% reduction in wound healing time in mice. White cells, fibroblasts, and blood vessel cells, increased in the wounds when lasered.
Canadian researchers did one study that really surprised me. They found the low level laser treatment (LLLT) actually worked better when it went through clothes or medical bandages. The study evaluated the laser treatment on fully dressed versus undressed wounds. It found that LLLT administered to fully dressed wounds "may facilitate a faster rate of wound healing than LLLT applied to exposed wounds by reducing trauma and the risk of infection." Wound trauma and risk of infection increases every time dressings are peeled off the wound for changing. The laser penetrates through clothing and dressings without major change in healing ability.
And the final study I'll discuss showed the laser works remarkably well for bacterial infection. In 2000, a published study said that LLLT could produce changes in bacterial growth of "considerable importance for wound healing." The study said that 630 nm appeared to be the best frequency to inhibit bacterial growth, inferring that this wavelength might be the wavelength of choice for treating infected wounds.
There you have the scientific proof, but here's the exciting clinical proof: V. H. had suffered with terrible headaches for 16 years. Nothing worked! Painkillers stopped working years ago and they were beginning to cause other health problems. A problem tooth caused the pain. But her dentist couldn't figure out how to stop it. When she tried Dr. Graham's laser, it penetrated right through her maxillary bone to the root of the problem. Her pain was gone in seconds!
Barbara Duffey dropped a 45-pound weight on her foot at the gym. It was badly damaged and she was sure it was fractured. The skin under her toes turned black and swelled, even though she put her foot in an ice bath. She couldn't put weight on the ball of her foot. She went to the ER, but they were too busy with emergencies to evaluate her, even after waiting two hours. Barb went home, where she had Dr. Graham's laser. She treated herself on the programs for deep bruise, lymph, and circulation. Only eight hours after the morning injury, she had done five treatments. The swelling and bruising was already receding and she was walking.
The next day she repeated the treatments a "few times." She was not limping. That night the bruise was about gone. The following day she was able to work out normally. "I was so astounded and speechless that the discoloration began clearing within minutes and was almost gone within a few hours."
The gym owner, who witnessed the accident, was incredulous that Barb was running and working out in tennis shoes only two days later.
In Denver, Paul Dicken, a 62-year-old ex-pro baseball player for Cleveland (1963-'66) developed repeat sciatica. He could only walk a quarter mile before severe pain stopped him cold. Adjustments helped before, but did not work this time. After six months of continuous pain, Paul saw Dr. Graham. Paul was instructed to walk with the laser shining on his skull. Dr. Graham didn't tell him why he was being treated with light to avoid a placebo effect. He walked out of the office five minutes later with no pain. "My neurological gait was out of whack. The pain has been gone now for two years. I bought one for maintenance!" Paul told me.
And then there's Jack and his wife, a middle-aged couple, both with genital herpes. Jack's herpes outbreaks usually last 12-14 days. His wife's lasts about 10-12 days. I got to see them within a day of their last outbreak. They used the laser daily for about five minutes for only three days. The lesions had healed in both.
I think Dr. Graham's innovations in laser therapy may make his instrument the healing tool of the decade. He has programmed in specific frequency pulsations of the laser light. In addition to the energy of the light, you also receive it in frequencies that Dr. Graham and his associates have found to be specific for target tissues.
Cold lasers are an FDA class IIIa device. That means they are considered safe and are available to you by prescription for human use. The only known warning is that you don't shine it directly into your eyes. That's a no brainer.
But you don't necessarily have to get a prescription to buy the device. Ironically, you can order Dr. Graham's 635 nm laser without a prescription to home treat your pets or farm animals. It's very easy to use. Additionally, this device has slots that enable you to enter frequencies that you or your doctor believes will be specific for you or your pet. I've checked on similar instruments and have found nothing comparable in price or versatility.
Now for the tougher news. The lasers aren't cheap. The professional four-light model is $5,995. The two-light home unit is $2,995. That might seem like a lot. But consider the huge dollar outlays and time with your doctor that you've already paid for pain treatments that haven't worked. Consider your lost time at work. Somehow, a home device like this may now sound reasonably priced. It won't require you to travel to me or another doctor for neural therapy injections, prolotherapy, or other interventions. You can do it in the comfort of your own home.
Since you can treat yourself, your doctor could easily get one for his/her office and make it available for walk-ins at a bargain basement fee. You can be sure that I will continue to investigate the versatility of this healing tool and regularly report to you on my research. Dr. Graham's company, LazrPulsR Systems, can be contacted at 888-696-6532. They're ready to beam Star Trek healing to you now. Move over Dr. McCoy!

Q: I really enjoyed your story about the low-level laser. Can the laser work on animals and children? -- B.J., via e-mail
A: Thank you. I'm glad you liked the story. The laser truly is a remarkable medical breakthrough. And, yes, it works wonders on animals and children.
Take the story of Shirley Saddoris, for example. She's a horsewoman from Colorado who told me her expensive draft horse was bitten on its nose three times by a rattlesnake. The horse's airway was in great danger of closing from the poison. "The venom was destroying cells."
She watched her vet work the laser on the horse's nose. The vet first lasered several acupuncture points to relax the horse. Then he irradiated the bites. The mare was lasered six times daily. The bruise began to resolve right in front of Shirley's eyes.
The bruise was gone in just two days rather than an expected seven days. The skin over the bites did not slough off. On the second day, the horse had some difficulty breathing in the morning, but that was corrected in just minutes after treatment.
The horse was turned out with its companions in just 3 days. On the fourth day, no one could tell that the incident had even occurred. The horse had been given antivenin, but suffered none of the late complications that are common with antivenin. "I could not believe the calm state of the horse while it was lasered," said Shirley.
Tim Carbert works with Dr. Gerry Graham (the inventor of the laser device) and is his son-in-law. Tim worked on his uncle's dog.
The poor animal had acquired a bacterial infection from raccoon urine. The germ caused uncontrolled fluid retention. His abdominal girth had doubled. He would not move or eat; and he didn't respond to antibiotics. His liver had shriveled. They were ready to put him down.
Two weeks into the illness, Tim treated him with several laser programs and the animal responded immediately.
"You could actually see the size of his fluid-filled abdomen go down" with the treatment. He got up, urinated, and ate. He was treated every five to seven days.
The edema and belly fluid disappeared, revealing a totally emaciated dog. In 3-4 weeks, he returned to normal.
Then there's the treatment of children. Karen Whisner of Colorado is Dr. Graham's assistant.
One of her grandchildren (four years old) developed stomach cramps. She got out her laser and treated him. His cramps were gone in minutes and he passed a tapeworm.
Another 4-year-old grandson stuck his fingers in a candle. They were burned red, but not yet blistered. She placed them in cold water and then lasered them. He resumed playing in 15 minutes.
As you can see, the laser is great for use on just about any animal or human. It's very safe. And has no side effects. ---
Shocking Discovery: How Shining a Light Up Your Nose Cures Disease Vol. XXIII, No. 7 July 2013 Dr. Robert Jay Rowen's Second Opinion Newsletter
For the past several years, I've been telling you about the power of energy healing. Some of the treatments are extraordinarily effective. The costs of devices have varied from moderately pricey to expensive. Now, I'm really excited to tell you of a novel energy device that's relatively cheap, super easy to administer to yourself, and which might dramatically help your health conditions.
When you subscribed to Second Opinion, you might have gotten a promotion I wrote years ago about light therapy. Dr. Darius Dinshah was a daring pioneer who proved that shining particular colors on the body could induce rapid and "unexplained" healings for a variety of conditions. (For his discoveries, the FDA destroyed him.) My publisher offers color filters based on his work.
Light technology has come a long, long way since Dinshah's time. We now have lasers and light emitting diodes (LED) of all colors. I've written here about laser therapy, particularly red light in the 635 nm wavelength area. This wavelength of light has some exciting properties in healing a multitude of tissues. One property is that it activates a key enzyme in your mitochondria (energy furnaces) called cytochrome oxidase. If you can get your mitochondria turned on, you can accomplish "miraculous" healing, since all healing requires energy. More on the biochemistry in a moment.
Researchers in China have been actively researching low-intensity laser on vascular diseases. In one paper published in 2012, researchers evaluated 90 subjects. All of them had either coronary artery disease or a history of stroke. They divided the participants into a treatment group of 60 and a control group of 30. They gave the treatment group the therapeutic light for just 30 minutes daily for 10 days, three days off and another session of 10 days. They exposed the control group to a normal, non-medical light.
They didn't have the patients make any dietary changes. But they did fast before the blood draws. The age range of the treatment and control group was similar -- about 75 and 76 years respectively. The researchers evaluated their blood for blood viscosity and lipid changes. The two key blood viscosity measurements decreased significantly. That means their blood became less "thick" and easier to flow. That's extremely important for vascular diseases. Now get this. Total cholesterol fell from 173 mg/dl to 147. LDL fell from 107 mg/dl to 97. "Good" HDL cholesterol rose from 42 mg/dl to 47. And, triglycerides fell from 161 mg/dl to 151.
Did it help stroke? A 2005 China study on 21 patients utilized the sophisticated SPECT scan, which actually determines blood flow to various areas of the brain. The therapeutic light improved brain perfusion on the treated side! Other studies showed improvement in stroke symptoms with this treatment.
You know, if a pharmaceutical drug did this well for vascular risk, you'd have doctors recommending it regardless of the chemical's toxic effects. But light therapy has no known toxicity. And this light therapy had a most novel, easy, and unique administration -- into your nasal cavity! That's right! All they did was shine a red light into their nose.
The Chinese postulated that the red light might work by improving the redox status of cells. Redox refers to oxidation/reduction. Redox is as important to your cells as is pH (acid/base). They measure redox by the ratio of an oxidized vitamin B3 molecule called NAD+ to its reduced form NADH. That's called the NAD+/NADH ratio. A dysfunctional cell has a lower NAD+/NADH ratio than normal. A dysfunctional cell is more reduced, meaning richer in electrons. Why? All those extra electrons indicate that oxygen is not actively soaking them up and making energy for you.
Ozone and ultraviolet oxidation therapies work to raise this ratio. NAD+/NADH ratio is crucial in your ATP energy production. One of the ways oxidation therapies work is to raise that ratio by generating more NAD+, which stimulates mitochondrial energy output! The red light may have a similar effect as the more expensive oxidation therapy in improving (raising) the redox (oxidation/reduction) status of your cells. In fact, other research has shown that the light works best where the redox status is actually faulty, and the light doesn't help at all if the redox status is optimal. You need more NAD+ in your cells to jump-start biochemical reactions. Cancer cells are overly reduced, meaning they'll have a very low NAD+/NADH ratio. That indicates they aren't using oxygen to grab the excess of electrons, like a normal cell does.
China is well ahead of us in light research and treatment. One study found that intranasal light therapy for 60 minutes per session, once daily over 10-14 days, improved insomnia for 82% of patients. In a study on patients with mild cognitive impairment, intranasal red light improved red blood cell deformability compared to placebo. That means the red cells became less stiff. That's crucial for the cells to squeeze through your small capillaries, which have a smaller diameter than your red cells themselves. This brings better blood flow and oxygen delivery, and less of a requirement for more pressure to squeeze the red cells through!
In 2002, another Chinese study evaluated 47 Alzheimer's disease patients and 22 patients with gastric ulcers as controls. The researchers treated the participants with a red intranasal laser once daily each morning for 30 days. Melatonin levels increased in the Alzheimer's group, as did a memory test, but there was no change in the gastric ulcer group.
A study on Parkinson's disease in 2003 found that intranasal laser treatment for 30 minutes each morning for 20 days improved symptoms in two-thirds of the patients. Out of these, 30% had significant improvement and 57% had mild improvement. When it comes to Parkinson's symptoms, any improvement is most desirable.
Furthermore, levels of SOD enzyme (a key protective and anti-aging enzyme) and melatonin (a key repair and protective molecule made during sleep in your pineal gland) both rose. At the same time, MDA (malondialdehyde), a marker for destructive oxidative damage, decreased. Even better, an intestinal enzyme called cholecystokinin- octapeptide, which high levels have a deleterious effect on cognitive ability, declined to normal levels.
Yet another Chinese study on Parkinson's found improvements in 89% of patients, with 27.7% having significant improvement. And, an animal study found that low-level light irradiation at 670 nm (similar to the red laser) prevented loss of vulnerable neurons in the substantial nigra, the brain area deranged in Parkinson's.
Do you have headaches? A 1998 study treated 39 patients with chronic migraines and trigeminal neuralgia similarly for 30 minutes per session per day over two five-day periods with a two-day break in between.
Improvement occurred in 90% of patients with twothirds having significant improvement. Improvements in local blood flow alone might account for these findings! What about depression? A pilot Chinese study on depressed patients showed a remarkable 63% reduction when the researchers irradiated their foreheads with a longer wavelength (810 nm which is infrared). Blood flow to the frontal cortex increased. That's the area of higher brain functioning! Remember the SPECT brain scan findings on page 2. This study confirms those results.
Now let's translate the above to treatment for the average American. The Chinese were using old technology that required you to plug the device into an outlet.
That's not very convenient. They also used laser light.
Recent research indicates that it is the wavelength that does the trick and that the light doesn't have to be a laser. So, a far cheaper LED light (emitting the required wavelength) will have a nearly identical effect. And, in recent years, LED technology has been so miniaturized that we can accomplish an intranasal administration with a single battery power supply.
Lew Lim, of MedicLights research, Toronto, is a brilliant engineer and entrepreneur who came to meet with me in Santa Rosa. He's developed an amazingly small device called the Vielight, which you can easily carry in your shirt pocket. It provides a power supply to an LED light that you can very comfortably insert into your nostril to provide the requisite energy and wavelength. Better for us, since, as it is a LED and not laser, there are no FDA concerns. (Lasers carry a warning regarding shining directly into your eyes.)
You might wonder why intranasal LED administration works so well. There are several reasons. The 630 nm wavelength penetrates tissues at least 1 cm. That will get the energy close to or into your brain. The bones in back of the nasal cavity are paper thin, and will easily transmit the red light. Plus, your nose septum is among the richest tissues in capillaries. The red wavelength will easily penetrate all the red blood cells in this bloodrich area, bathing them in the stimulating and healing light. This can improve their oxygen delivery performance. In the 25-minute preset treatment, you are treating a large percentage of your red blood cells.
The cost of Lim's LED red intranasal light (at 633 nm wavelength) is just $299. He is so sure of its value to you that he has offered Second Opinion readers a money back guarantee. I've never seen a money back guarantee for any re-saleable healing device. Use it for three months. If you don't like it, return it, and you'll get an 80% refund. He can't do a 100% money back guarantee since he can't resell the device.
My goal here is to get you information you can use to heal yourself at home with limited trips to any doctor, including me. Some of the healing methods I've written about, while incredibly effective, may be out of the price range for many people. This device may provide the most cost-effective means of treatment of anything I've written about. Lim reports that the feedback received from customers (including practitioners) largely supports the clinical data of the Chinese studies.
The Vielight may hold promise to help you restore homeostasis (balance) in high blood pressure and vascular conditions by improving the rheological (flow) properties of your blood. If you choose to try it, please use once daily. It's so comfortable, you can easily use it when you go to bed. It's preset to shut off after 25 minutes. You can order the lights by calling 855-377-6936.

Artemisinin Fights Cancer Better Than We Thought Dr. Robert Jay Rowen's Second Opinion Newsletter Vol. XVII, No. 3 March 2007
Several years ago, I brought you news that an herbal extract could cure cancer. It was based in large part on the work of a key researcher in artemisinin, Henry Lai of the University of Washington. His group showed how artemisinin selectively kills malignant cells in the lab. Now Lai's group has published research that artemisinin is an even better cancer fighter than we thought. He found that it might prevent breast cancer as well.
Lai gave rats a single dose of a carcinogen called DMBA. It's known to induce multiple breast cancers. The rats were then randomly divided into two groups with one group receiving 0.02% artemisinin in their feed. The artemisinin supplemented rats had a 40% lower incidence of breast cancer than the control group. Furthermore, their tumors were smaller and fewer than in the controls.
Cancer cells store lots of iron to help them rapidly divide. Artemisinin works by reacting with the iron. The reaction creates free radicals and damage to the cancer cells. In contrast, normal cells don't contain such high levels of iron. And they carefully protect their iron, so the iron in normal cells is unavailable to react. This same mechanism is believed to be the means artemisinin kills the malaria parasite.
Malaria has lots of unshielded iron from the red cells it eats. Because malaria can't get rid of this iron, artemisinin makes a "smart bomb" for the parasite.
I've followed several women who have maintained stability and/or significant improvement from advanced breast cancer.
And artemisinin was part of their routine. I have also seen many other cases of cancer that responded very well. One was a man who saw his early colon cancer disappear.
I'm not ready to recommend artemisinin as a routine cancer preventor. However, if you know that you're at risk breast or other cancers, you might consider artemisinin at a dose range of 200- mg twice daily. There's no known toxicity at those levels. I generally recommend artemisinin from NutriCology since I know that the company assays every batch of material they receive. Considering that cancer you are dealing with, I think backing of an assay is a good idea.

Chinese Herb Cures Cancer Dr. Robert Jay Rowen's Second Opinion Newsletter Vol. XII, No. 5 May 2002
These days, it's not uncommon to hear about a therapy or nutrient that cures cancer. Problem is, few of them really work.
I remember when shark cartilage was the new cure for cancer because, after all, sharks don't get cancer. Even some prominent newsletter writers bought into this supposed "miracle cure" and promoted it hard. Trouble was, it didn't work.
I work with a group of about 20 different doctors who try treatments like this, and we compare our results to find out what works and what doesn't. Shark cartilage failed our tests miserably!
Since then, we've found several therapies that really do work in many cases. I've told you about a few of these, including insulin potentiation therapy and cancer vaccines. Unfortunately, all of these are doctor-administered therapies. They work wonders, but you have to find a doctor who is willing to administer them, which is a serious problem for many of you.
While I never recommend my patients treat their cancer by themselves, there's now an herb I can recommend wholeheartedly that's safe and can be used at home and in conjunction with the previously mentioned doctoradministered therapies. This isn't just a supplement to help build your immune system. This herb aggresively fights cancer.
Just how effective is it? Let me introduce you to Donald, a 47-year-old mechanic who is in great shape. He had a newly diagnosed lymphoma and came to see me just after his oncologist had biopsied the tumor. There was an ugly egg-sized mass on the left side of his head with a gaping hole from the biopsy and an angry redness from inflammation.
I immediately put him on a derivative of this Chinese herb and he took it for two weeks. At the end of that time, the lump developed a little depression in the center, but the perimeter had grown just slightly. Dejected that it didn't significantly regress, he elected to stop further use of the product and take a "wait and see" approach. Four weeks later, I received a call from Donald. The tumor was gone!
My mouth dropped open and I could hardly wait to see him. Returning with his wife and a big smile a few days later, I couldn't believe my eyes. The skin was smooth, no mass was present, and the angry redness was fading fast. He said, "I had lots of people praying for me, I have faithfully followed your recommendations on diet, which are extremely important, but I'm convinced the artemesia product was the key."
As you can imagine, I was jumping out of my skin! Artemesia is a simple plant that grows in Southeast Asia. I've used it for years to treat intestinal parasites. The World Health Organization lauds it as a safe malaria treatment. Little did I know I had a cancer cure sitting right under my nose.
I discovered the cancer connection Drs. Henry Lai and Narenda Singh, bioengineering professors at the University of Washington, reported on the active agent of this Asian herb (artemisinin). Their report said the herb "might provide a safe, non-toxic, and inexpensive alternative for cancer patients." So I called Dr. Lai and he told me some earth-shaking information.
What I didn't realize was that artemesia is a close cousin to oxygen therapy. Chinese researchers said the key to its effects was a peroxide linkage (two oxygen atoms hooked together) within the herb's active molecule. Remember our old friend hydrogen peroxide?
All peroxides share a common feature. In the presence of free iron, they break down to form highly reactive oxygen-based free radicals. Malaria is a parasite (plasmodium) that infects the iron-rich red blood cell and accumulates iron. While the body avidly shields iron in a bound-up state (hemoglobin, enzymes, etc.), excess iron accumulates in the parasite, and the accumulation allows some iron to spill out of the bound state and become free. When the artemisinin products contact the iron -- BOOM! A huge burst of free radicals is unleashed, virtually blowing up the cell harboring the free iron and destroying the parasite.
Some seven years ago, Dr. Lai, aware of the high accumulation of iron in cancer cells, wondered if this same mechanism might work in cancer treatment. He and his colleague, Dr. Singh, conducted experiments in laboratory cancer cells documenting a 100 percent kill rate of breast-cancer cells and leukemia cells in just hours. More importantly, it left normal breast cells and white blood cells unscathed.
Then, one year ago, an article appeared in a major cancer journal demonstrating significant artemisinin anticancer activity in a wide variety of laboratory cultured cancer cells. But astonishingly, cancers resistant to common chemotherapy drugs showed no such resistance to artemisinin. It does not have the chemical structure a cancer cell requires to develop resistance! (This was reported recently in the (International Journal of Oncology 18; 767-773, 2001 by Efferth, et al.)
I was more than intrigued. I was captivated. I thought if its antimalarial effects translated to anti-cancer effects, this could be the cancer breakthrough of our lifetime. So I started using the herb's derivatives in my cancer treatment program. Donald, mentioned earlier, was one of my first cases. At about the same time, I continued to follow a long-term patient, a delightful 47-year-old female with stage-4 breast cancer. Diane was diagnosed only two years before with the promise of "We got it all" at her mastectomy. When she came to me, she had developed metastases in her spine, which caused her to limp. A cancer- induced fracture in her vertebrae gave her significant pain and prevented her from performing the duties of her job. All the conventional doctors could offer was full-dose chemotherapy at a horrific toll on the quality of her life, but they also confided honestly that there was no hope it would lead to a cure.
She chose alternatives instead, receiving IPT, highdose nutritional therapy, dietary changes, dendritic cell vaccine, multi-step oxygen therapy, and more. All of her symptoms regressed, but the CT showed no change. After a short course of artemisinin derivatives, she reported back to me that physically she couldn't tell she had ever had cancer. She felt totally well. The CT scan showed regression but there's no way to tell if the remaining lesion was a tumor or healing scar tissue. Results like this with absolutely no toxicity are simply amazing by any standards, conventional or unconventional.
Yet another patient, Carole, who was seeing my friend Dr. Donato Perez-Garcia for IPT, came to see me with an unsightly, massive, open, and oozing cancer engulfing what had been her whole left breast. She had been fighting the cancer for two years and, convinced on her own that doing conventional therapy was a death sentence, she explored nearly every option she could. She started an artemesia derivative and sent me photos one month later showing exceptional healing!
I recently had the pleasure to speak with Dr. Hoang of Hanoi, Vietnam, whose family of physicians has been using artemisinin for about 10 years. He reports that 50-60 percent of 400 cancer patients have achieved long-term remission utilizing artemisinin together with a comprehensive integrative cancer strategy.
Among these patients is a 47-year-old female who, presented with terminal liver cancer from hepatitis B and abdominal ascites (massive swelling from liver failure), was just days or weeks from death. Today, two-and-a-half years later, she is alive and well with no signs of any disease! Dr. Singh is currently following many cancer patients. While not reporting remissions or apparent cures, he says all patients are responding and have at least stabilized. He has found no type of cancer unresponsive to artemisinin derivatives in his studies.
Dr. Hoang recommends treatment for two years.
Cancer could be like the malaria parasite. If just one cell remains, it can find its way back. Thus, as in malaria, although the parasite is cleared in a few days, prolonged treatment best prevents relapse. And the beauty of this treatment is that it's non-toxic, so you can continue taking it indefinitely with no expected side effects.
There are three common artemesia derivatives, and one must know the properties of each for best treatment.
Artesunate is water soluble and may be the most active and the least toxic, but it has the shortest life within the body. Artemether is oil or lipid soluble and has the longest half-life. It also has the most toxicity (but this is related to rather high dosages, which are unnecessary. Its big advantage is that it can cross the blood-brain barrier to reach cancers in the nervous system. Artemisinin is the active parent compound of the plant. It has an intermediate half-life, is very safe, and also can cross the bloodbrain barrier.
The first two are slightly altered semi-synthetic derivatives of artemisinin, the concentrated and purified active agent. Dr. Singh reports that a combination of the forms may be the very best treatment due to these different properties (based on a lab experiment). Thus, he feels the best preparation will contain artemisinin and artemether to provide a dose of 0.5-2 mg/Kg of each form once daily before bed (away from any residual iron left in the stomach from the evening meal). Dr. Hoang reports that 500 mg twice daily of oral artemisinin by itself is the dosage he has been using with great success.
The product is best taken on an empty stomach with some natural fat to enhance absorption. Any iron present from residual food may neutralize the peroxides. Milk is one of the few foods with minimal iron. Whole milk, cottage cheese, or yogurt have ample fat to enhance absorption. Additionally, I believe simultaneous administration of cod liver oil (for its omega-3 and vitamin D) and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) will assist absorption, while providing additional therapeutic benefits.
Folks, my hat's off to Drs. Lai and Singh, medical saints who have brought this information to the world. To date, with the exception of patients very near death, taking artemisinin or derivatives have stabilized, improved, or remitted every cancer patient I have followed. No one could deny this is nothing short of an absolute miracle!
We are in the infancy of our understanding of how to use artemesia products. The medical literature suggests that oxygenating the system, perhaps with multistep oxygen therapy, might make them more effective.
Administration of certain chemotherapy agents (IPT), which kill cells through free radical mechanisms, is another option.
Please note that artemesia herb products are not the same as the concentrated forms of the derivatives I've described here. The highest concentration of artemisinin (the active agent) in the raw herb in best of conditions does not even get beyond one-half pecent. Furthermore, there's concern by Dr. Singh that unscrupulous dealers will label artemisinin content without performing a proper analysis. Thus, he has tested some products, finding perhaps only 10-20 percent of anticancer activity against cultured cancer cells compared to pure artemisinin.
Allergy Research Group (800-545-9960) distributes a high-grade artemisinin confirmed by independent lab analysis, which I recommend.
But, remember, it is not a singular therapy. It should be used in conjunction with a comprehensive cancer management strategy, together with the help of an integrative medicine physician or an open-minded oncologist.
The best news of all, though, is that you now have more hope than ever that cancer will not take your life! -

The Matrix: As Applied to Medicine http://www.meditopia.org/old/chap8_2004.htm "You've felt it your entire life. That there's something wrong with the world. You don't know what it is, but it's there, like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad . . . The Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us, even in this very room . . . It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth . . . a prison that you cannot smell, or taste, or touch. A prison for your mind."
Morpheus The Matrix "If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen." Samuel Adams (1722-1803)
" ' You have the honor of the king's favor; but you know nothing about liberty, what relish it has and how sweet it is. For if you had any knowledge of it, you yourself would advise us to defend it, not with lance and shield, but with our very teeth and nails. ' " Étienne De La Boétie 18
"When The Matrix was released in 1999, it was hailed by critics for its riveting, eye-popping special effects. However, apart from its contribution to pop culture and state-of-the-art filmmaking of the action figure variety, its use as a metaphor for explaining how our society REALLY works -- especially as it relates to our relationship to an unseen power structure, is all too evident. Entire books were written, devoted just to this one theme. David Icke's Children of the Matrix and my late friend and one-time writing partner, Max Skousen's, A Blessing Hitherto Unknown (Vol. 3) are both examples..." -- Greg Caton
With spring officially starting this week, a lot of people are ready to get outside into the sunshine. But I also hear a lot more concern during this time of year about skin cancer. In fact, I received the following letter from Ronald K. in Indianapolis, IN:
“Dr. Shallenberger, what about skin cancer on the forehead — are there any natural remedies?”
Here’s my response to Ronald:
“I’m going to assume that you have a basal cell cancer. These are the most common. And I have a great remedy for them that works incredibly well (and it may work for other skin cancers as well). Basal cell cancers are very responsive to specific topical herbal treatments. The best one goes by various names including Compound X, Cowboy Salve, Black Salve, Healing Time Salve, or Indian Salve.
“All of these herbal preparations are combinations of the herb bloodroot and zinc. The one I use has chaparral in it as well. Unfortunately, you can’t get the one I use anymore. The FDA hates these salves. They’ve made it one of their top priorities to get rid of their manufacturers. Fortunately, there are still some around. But the formulas differ somewhat — though all of them should be effective.
“I bought a one-ounce bottle about 25 years ago, and it is still about 20% full. Since I first bought it in the Bahamas (for about $50), I have removed about 100-150 basal cells. It doesn’t take much, and it works great without any side effects or scarring whatsoever.
“I know you can get the salves over the Internet. There are a lot on the market, and the salves tend to be expensive. I’ve seen some around the same price range, give or take $10, as what I paid 25 years ago. But they last a long time and you can use them to fight many of these cancers. So they are worth the price. Since I’ve used the same one all these years, I can’t advise you as to which one is the best. They all should work, though.”
With spring in the air, it’s time to get out and enjoy the sun. Don’t use sunscreens and don’t get sunburned. They both can cause problems. Spend your time outside carefully. But do get outdoors. The sun is great for your health.

The role of UV light Much of the damage to DNA in skin cells results from ultraviolet (UV) radiation found in sunlight and in commercial tanning lamps and tanning beds. UV light is divided into three wavelength bands: ultraviolet A (UVA), ultraviolet B (UVB) and ultraviolet C (UVC). Only UVA and UVB rays reach the earth. UVC radiation is completely absorbed by atmospheric ozone.
At one time scientists believed that only UVB rays played a role in the formation of skin cancer. And UVB light does cause harmful changes in skin cell DNA, including the development of oncogenes — a type of gene that can turn a normal cell into a malignant one. UVB rays are responsible for sunburn and for many basal cell and squamous cell cancers. But UVA also contributes to skin cancer. It penetrates the skin more deeply than UVB does, weakens the skin's immune system and increases the risk of cancer, especially melanoma.
Tanning beds deliver high doses of UVA, which makes them especially dangerous. What's more, occasional exposure to intense UVA puts you at greater risk of skin cancer than spending long hours in the sun does. An initial high dose of UV radiation will severely damage melanocytes, but not destroy them. When these damaged cells are subjected to further intense bouts of UVA light, they have little capacity to repair their DNA. This makes them more likely to become malignant.
