Today I have the great pleasure of sharing an interview I did with my dear friend and fellow cancer survivor Suzy Griswold, founder of HealingStrong.

Suzy was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2009. Three months after surgery and radiotherapy, the cancer spread to her lymph nodes. When chemotherapy was recommended, Suzy began investigating alternative, natural and non-toxic cancer treatments and discovered the Gerson Therapy and the power of radical life change and faith. Eighteen months later she was cancer free!

In September 2013, with a team of big-hearted volunteers, Suzy organized a faith-based holistic cancer conference called HealingStrong, and asked me to speak and emcee it, which was an incredible honor. The conference was a really special gathering of like-minded survivors and thrivers that birthed a big idea.

Three months later, Suzy started a HealingStrong a free monthly support group in the Atlanta area with a focus on education, encouragement and sharing empowering resources to help patients take control of their life and health.

The HealingStrong support group model is about rebuilding the body, restoring the soul, and renewing the spirit. In the last seven years, HealingStrong groups have been founded in hundreds of cities and is now the largest network of holistic cancer support groups in the world. And it’s still free.

I’m a huge fan and supporter of HealingStrong and Suzy Griswold is one of my favorite people in the world. She is a truly an amazing person with some wonderful wisdom to share. Enjoy!

Letter to world governments signed by over 100 scientists and doctors recommending vitamin D supplementation of at least 4,000 IU per day:
 
Study: 80% of COVID-19 patients are vitamin D deficient:
 
Study: Vitamin D3 supplementation nearly doubles survival rate in nursing home patients:
 
Vitamin D is the #1 anti-cancer vitamin:
 
Minimum 4,000 IU is recommended per day. Start with 10,000 IU per day for 2-3 weeks if you haven't been taking D3 or if you are in the high risk SODA group: Seniors, Obese, African descent or dark skin, Diabetic.
 
I personally take 10,000 IU per day in the winter. 5,000 IU with breakfast, 5,000 IU with dinner.

Ralph Moss, PhD, is a legend and a personal hero of mine.

Dr. Moss is a graduate of New York University  and Stanford University. He was the science writer and assistant director of public affairs at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York  from 1974 until 1977 when they asked him to lie about the results of a study on a natural compound for cancer from apricot seeds called Laetrile. Moss courageously blew the whistle and it cost him his career. But the end of that career was the beginning of a much better one.

He wrote a firsthand account of what went down in the book Doctored Results: The Suppression of Laetrile at Sloan Kettering Institute for Cancer ResearchAnd for the last forty years, Dr. Moss has dedicated his life to independently evaluate the claims of conventional and alternative cancer treatments all over the world. He has peer-reviewed numerous scientific papers for journal such as Blood, Current Oncology, Tumor Biology and many more. He has written and/or edited twelve books and four documentary films on cancer research, the cancer industry and treatment options. I discovered his book Questioning Chemotherapy way back in 2004. My mom had it!

Dr. Moss currently publishes The Moss Reports, which are continually updated detailed reports on the most common cancer diagnoses. He also provides informational and personalized consultations for cancer patients and their families.

In 2019, he wrote The Ultimate Guide to Cancer: DIY Research, to help lay people research their own cancers. This 50-page report is available free of charge at www.mossreports.com.

His latest book, published in 2020, is entitled Cancer, Incorporated: The Inside Story of the Corruption, Greed and Lies of Big Pharma. Also available at www.mossreports.com

This interview is an incredible deep dive into the cancer industry and alternative treatments.

“The most powerful medicine is the medicine from within.” – Dr. Valter Longo

It’s been two and a half years, since my last interview with Dr. Valter Longo, and today he’s back to share some exciting updates on his ongoing research, specifically on fasting to improve cancer treatment.

Valter Longo PhD is the author of the book, The Longevity Diet, and one of the foremost researchers in the world on fasting, immune system regeneration, and longevity.

Dr. Longo and colleagues also developed the Fasting Mimicking Diet, a 4-5 day, plant-based, calorie-restricted diet, which is used clinically under the name Xentigen (formerly Chemolieve) and is available to consumers under the brand name ProLon.

In this new interview, Dr. Longo talks about three new studies published in Nature on the impact that a Fasting Mimicking Diet has on cancer cells and cancer treatment. These studies found:

-Breast cancer patients who did a four-day Fasting Mimicking Diet around each chemo cycle had the same amount of side effects as the control group doing chemo, but without taking an additional drug to reduce side effects. The FMD group had a five times better response to chemo than the non-FMD group. They were more likely to experience 90-100% tumor loss and they had far less long-term immune cell damage.

-The Fasting Mimicking Diet combined with IV vitamin C worked better than vitamin C alone.

-Hormone therapy ER+ with FMD caused increased tumor regression and reversed treatment resistance.

It is an absolute thrill and an incredible honor to be able to interview Dr. Valter Longo again.

Rip Esselstyn was a professional plant-based triathlete for 10 years before becoming a firefighter in Austin, Texas. During that time, Rip helped his entire firehouse (Engine 2) convert to a plant-based diet, helping his fellow firemen lose weight and reverse various chronic diseases.

In 2009, as a result of that experience, he wrote a massive bestseller called The Engine 2 Diet and created the global Plant-Strong movement. Since then he has authored multiple bestsellers including: Plant-Strong, The Engine 2 Seven-Day Rescue Diet, and The Engine 2 Cookbook.

Rip was an executive producer for the documentary film The Game Changers and also hosts the Plant-Strong Podcast.

Nearly 2500 years ago Hippocrates brilliantly declared, “All disease begins in the gut.” And it’s taken almost as many years for science to uncover why…

70-80% of your immune system is in your gut!

Today’s episode of the Chris Beat Cancer podcast features Will Bulsiewicz, MD, MSCI, (a.k.a. Dr. B), a board-certified gastroenterologist, gut health expert, and the author of Fiber Fueled: The Plant-Based Gut Health Program for Losing Weight, Restoring Your Health, and Optimizing Your Microbiome.

Fiber is essential for a healthy gut, diverse microbiome and a strong immune system. It is, in my opinion, the most underrated nutrient.

And as a result, 97% of Americans are fiber deficient!

Fun fact: You can’t get fiber from animal food. It is only found in plants.

In our interview Dr. Will Bulsiewicz and I talk about Fiber Fueled, how to heal and prevent disease with a fiber-rich plant-based diet, why doctors aren’t educated in evidence-based nutrition, the brutality of med school training, a new study showing how your microbiome affects your COVID-19 risk, and so much more.

This was such a fun conversation that Dr. B and I went extra long. Enjoy!

Brooke Goldner, MD is a board-certified physician, the founder of GoodbyeLupus.com, creator of the Hyper-Nourishing Nutrition Protocol for Lupus Reversal, and the author of Goodbye Lupus, Goodbye Autoimmune Disease, and Green Smoothie Recipes to Kick-Start Your Health & Healing.

At 16 years old Brooke was diagnosed with lupus and advanced kidney failure and told she might only have 6 months to live. She underwent aggressive chemotherapy and pharmaceuticals stabilized her disease but did not cure it.

For the next decade Brooke struggled with lupus symptoms and side effects like multiple mini-strokes, then while in medical residency, with the intention of looking good for her wedding, she adopted a high raw 100% plant-based diet and “accidentally” healed her lupus!

Dr. Goldner not only has an incredible understanding and track record reversing lupus and autoimmune diseases with nutrition but she also helps her patients overcome the mental and emotional issues that get in the way of recovery. She is a total package MD!

I know you’re gonna love this interview with the amazing and brilliant Dr. Brooke Goldner. The mental and emotional root causes of disease that we talk about in the second half of the interview are especially powerful. Don’t miss it!

In my previous interview with Dr. Michael Greger, we discussed his book How Not to Die, which is, in my opinion, the best, most comprehensive book on nutritional science ever written.

In today’s interview, filmed aboard the Holistic Holiday at Sea Cruise, Dr. Greger and I talk about his incredible new evidence-based weight loss book, How Not to Diet.

Why do I care about weight loss? Because obesity is the second leading cause of cancer. Excess body fat promotes hormonal imbalances, chronic inflammation, and immunosuppression. Losing excess fat and getting down to a healthy weight and BMI is essential for prevention and healing.

Dr. Greger made quite a few surprising and fascinating discoveries while combing through the scientific literature to learn the best dietary strategies to lose excess weight and keep it off…

Like how dinner calories are twice as fattening as breakfast calories (seriously!), the best intermittent fasting strategy, spices that accelerate weight loss, and so much more!

If you encountered a physician that dismissed you when you brought up the question of nutrition, who had an abysmal ignorance on the importance of what you are eating, on behalf of my profession, I apologize to you. The state of nutritional awareness among my profession is an embarrassment and we are working hard to reverse that.” -Michael Klaper, MD

Dr. Michael Klaper is an internationally renowned health and wellness educator. He has been a plant-based medical doctor for 39 years. He has written multiple books, produced numerous health videos and webinars, and authored dozens of articles for both scientific journals and the popular press.

Dr. Klaper served on staff at the TrueNorth Health Center for many years and is now spearheading Moving Medicine Forward, an initiative focused on educating medical students on plant-based nutrition to prevent and reverse chronic disease.

In our interview we talk about the incredible benefits of fasting, the True North medically supervised fasting protocol, how animal protein fuels cancer growth, fad diets like the ketogenic and carnivore diets, his opinion on sugar, salt and oils, and so much more.

I’ve been an admirer of Dr. Klaper for many years and it was a thrill to finally meet him in person! I know you will enjoy this interview with the brilliant Dr. Michael Klaper, filmed in my cabin on the Holistic Holiday at Sea cruise in February 2020.

Today he is one of the most influential plant-based medical professionals in the world.

I have been a big fan of Dr. Barnard for a long time and recently had the opportunity to interview him on a boat!

We were both speakers on the Holistic Holiday at Sea plant-based cruise in February 2020. It was an incredible experience and I’m scheduled to speak on the March 2021 Cruise, assuming the world goes back to normal by then… Details here.)

Dr. Barnard is a brilliant, compassionate and gracious teacher. In our wide-ranging interview, he shares his plant-based conversion story, talks about the problems created in the human body by excessive consumption of animal food, and how to balance your hormones naturally with a plant-based diet. His advice for doctors and cancer patients at the end of our interview is especially powerful.

I know you will love this interview with Dr. Neal Barnard from my cabin aboard the Holistic Holiday at Sea.

https://www.chrisbeatcancer.com/sung-won-md-reverse-back-pain-and-avoid-surgery-with-plant-based-nutrition/

"I suppose it is tempting, if the only tool you have is a hammer, to treat everything as if it were a nail." -Abraham Maslow

Conventional medical doctors receive extensive training to treat chronic disease with a very limited set of tools: drugs and surgery for most of what ails us, and additionally, radiotherapy for certain types of cancer.

The "hammer" most often used by physicians is pharmaceutical drugs. And in the case of surgeons, their hammer for back pain, knee pain, hip pain, etc. is to put you "under the knife," which often also involves hammers, saws, and drills. And if that doesn't work, anti-inflammatory drugs and pain pills.

Enter Dr. Sung Won

Sung Won, MD is an Orthopedic Regenerative Medicine Specialist, a minimally invasive spine surgeon, and an expert in stem cell therapy. And he is the only orthopedic surgeon I've ever met who helps his patients heal chronic pain and avoid surgery with a whole food plant-based nutrition program. What a concept!

Dr. Won hosts free monthly seminars at his center in Irving, Texas, teaching his patients how whole food plant-based nutrition can help prevent, suspend, and even completely reverse chronic pain and disease. I love this guy!

My first interview of 2020 is with Annie Grace. Annie was raised in a one-room cabin with no electricity or running water that could only be accessed by snowmobile in the winter.

At 26, she was hired as the youngest Vice President in a multinational company. Soon after, she was encouraged to attend happy hours and to drink socially to network with colleagues and clients in order to further her career.

By age 35, Annie was a marketing executive responsible for teams in 28 countries. She had two young children and she was drinking almost two bottles of wine per night.

That's when she realized she had a problem.

After many failed attempts, Annie discovered a unique and powerful approach to understanding and conquering alcohol addiction, without the stigma, guilt, and shame associated with identifying as an "alcoholic" for the rest of her life.

Annie's method has helped thousands of people transform their lives and gain freedom from alcohol.

If you're drinking alcohol daily, if you are struggling with excessive drinking, if you don't fit into the AA model or it hasn't worked for you, or if someone you care about is drinking a lot, then this interview is a must watch. Enjoy!
