Cancer Defined

Cancer is a full-term incubation of toxin within the entire system which is the result of continuous poisoning of the entire system for more than a decade.

Causes of Cancer

People develop the disease without knowing it. They say that if your family runs with this kind of disease then you are likely to develop the same disease. In my practice as a Naturopath, I have learned that only 20% of the cases are of genetic origin, the remaining 80% have unhealthy lifestyle as the cause, which they have adopted from their own families, and this is the primary reason why family members develop the same kind of disease. I would say that there are two major ways to develop this disease: 1) food addiction and 2) stress. The quality of food people are consuming today can also trigger the development of this disease. Meats are filled with growth hormones, processed foods are filled with excitotoxins – these are but few factors of developing cancer.

At-risk of Cancer

Everybody is at-risk of developing cancer, but if they are willing to start changing their lifestyle, I could guarantee them 100% that they can be free from developing any kind of disease.

Natural Approach for Management of Cancer

As a Naturopath, I mainly recognize the healing ability within the system. We have to go directly or trace the problem to its root or main source. All the people suffering from this disease has a blood abnormality because the blood can no longer function normally to produce quality cells – to produce adenosinetriphosphate (ATP).

In tracing the root, we have to eliminate the old fecal deposits and toxins within the entire system through a process of detoxification. Then we provide the body with nutrients that would help the cellular DNA to create healthy cells. L-Lysine, L-Proline, organic Vitamin C, superoxide dismutase (SOD), anti-oxidants and metaloprotenase enzyme are supplemented to enhance the blood to produce quality cells that will dominate the dying ones and fight cancer cells, then natural healing will follow.

Preventing Cancer Naturally

People who develop cancer or any kind of disease mean that they are unhealthy. In order to prevent cancer or any kind of disease, you have to be healthy, plain and simple. People should learn as well as be educated enough to know and learn the cause and effect of every unhealthy habit they formed. The good news I want to leave is that people who doesn’t like to eat good nutritious food and are annoyed with its taste will have a chance to like it because our taste chemistry can be changed. With the help of God, you can do it especially when it is for our own good health. This is the legacy I want to leave, that people could possibly live without having any kind of disease. I fully commit myself in educating them about health, and people can come to me and learn.

    Dear Dr. Tam,

    I have a bleeding ulcer. I pass out (no less than 7 times) every time I have an attack. Lately, it seems that my pacreas is already affected since my blood sugar soared up and so with goutal arthritis. I fear that my other system might be affected later if I continue to use synthetic medicine, in what way your herbal medicine helps me?

    Thanks !

    Dear Dr Tam,

    Hi doc! I was diagnosed to have breast cancer last March 2011. After modified radical mastectomy, I underwent chemotherapy. Since my ER and PR result is negative, I have no maintenance.

    I heard about your product through my sister and she convinced me to attend your seminar. I read your leaflets especially on the effects of live green. I bought your product and started taking live green. But I’m worried when I read about the side effects of alfalfa in the internet. It says
    “Hormone-sensitive condition such as breast cancer, uterine cancer, ovarian cancer, endometriosis, or uterine fibroids: Alfalfa might have the same effects as the female hormone estrogen. If you have any condition that might be made worse by exposure to estrogen, don’t use alfalfa.”

    I’m confused now, and my sister insisted that you have plenty of breast cancer survivors using live breen…hope to hear from you the soonest possible time….

    Good day doc!
    Hope you could help me with my ailments. In 2010, I was diagnose with severe asthma( super hyper sensitive) and acid reflux, 2011, heart prolapse and now I have cyst in my breast and cyst in my ovary. I am always constipated, always stress with too much work, and insomniac. I elliminate pork and beef although I still eat chicken and fish. I believe I have a low immune system that’s why I easily get sick. Please email me soon on food plans, and suppliments to take( miracle tea or live greens) I am super thin already, I guess this is due to my asthma I don’t know if the miracle tea will be good for me because I drink before the guyabano tea and after 5 glass of the tea I felt I was a dehydrated. I felt light headed and thanks to getorade, I felt relieve.
    I was thinking that I have a problem with my colon because everytime I deficate, ” parang nangangayayat ako” I did a colon test which is fiber sygmoygoscophy( I don’t know if the name is right) and it turned out to be negative with colon problems.
    Anyway, thank you. I hope you could reply soon. God bless!
