Man Says Power Of Prayer Healed His Cancer

Richard Beach Was Diagnosed With Terminal Prostate Cancer

 

It's one of life's mysteries. Why do some people survive a life-threatening disease and others don't? We're left wondering "Why me?" or "Why now?" But to a local man who has faced one of life's toughest challenges, it's no mystery at all.

Richard Beach believes he was cured by something no medical journal can explain.

For Beach, living long enough to hold his grandchildren seemed beyond reach.

"I was in my late 40s, 'Cancer? Not me!' I mean, surely," Beach recalled.

In 1992, Beach was diagnosed with prostate cancer.

"He said, 'This is bad, bad, bad news.' He said, 'You've got an aggressive cancer. It's in your neck. We can't do anything about that. Get your house in order,'" Beach said.

Two years later, it spread, forming a tumor in his neck that pressed against his spinal cord.

"It was a very dire circumstance and a very dangerous thing," said Dr. Ted Eigner, Beach's urologist.

"At that point they said, 'It's inoperable, and its untreatable, and it's incurable.' And then those words no one wants to hear, 'It's terminal,'" Beach said.

Even for a man of faith being told you may not have long to live is hard to swallow.

"So I'm thinking, I'll never get to see my kids married. I'll never get to see my grandchildren," Beach said.

During those trying days, Beach's trust in God never wavered.

"The day I discovered I had cancer, I had 40 to 50 friends gather in my living room and we wept and prayed together and asked for God's intervention in the deal," Beach said.

The prayers continued at his church and beyond.

"The Denver Nuggets team prayed for me one night in chapel," he said.

Doctors continued to warn Beach that tumors like his don't just disappear. Yet after treatment and after thousands of people prayed for him, a year later, his tumor was gone.

"I think, as a surgeon, we all learn pretty early in our career that there are a lot of other things besides surgery and medication that improves patients," Eigner said.

"I never once said, 'Oh, something is happening!' I didn't float off the ground. I didn't see visions, I didn't feel hot oil. I never felt any different and yet the tumor was gone," Beach said.

Some may say Beach's treatment and medical care paid off. While he praises his doctors, Beach believes he was healed through the power of prayer.

"Absolutely, without a doubt, there's no question in my mind," Beach said.

Beach defied the odds and amazed doctors with his recovery. As for his dream of spending more time with his family, he saw it realized.

"I got to marry both my daughter and son, got to see my granddaughter born and I've been a very blessed man," he said.

After five years of being cancer free, recent tests have shown that there may be a reoccurrence of cancer for Beach but he's still grateful and convinced of the power of prayer.

"I'm praying to be healed again and I might not, but then again, I might," Beach said.

 

Matthew chapter 4 contains one of my favorite stories from the life of Jesus—that of his temptation in the wilderness.

 You may remember it. But just in case it's been a while since Sunday School, I'll refresh your memory...

 Just after Jesus was baptized (in Matthew 3), he is led by the Spirit into the wilderness, where he fasted for 40 days and 40 nights. At the end of the 40 days, he was, of course very hungry. That's when Satan appeared to tempt him...

 'If you're really the Son of God,' Satan said, 'turn these stones into bread, so you can eat.'

 That's when Jesus uttered the famous line "Man does not live by bread alone..."

 If you read the rest of the story, you know that Jesus was referring to spiritual nourishment taking precedence over physical sustenance.

 But in the context of the healing code, there is another layer of meaning in this story...

 Here's what I mean. There are two details from the story that align perfectly with cutting-edge cancer research. Combine the two, and the result is a revolutionary way to cure cancer—with no side effects, and without spending a dime...

 

The Matthew 4 Protocol: Part 1

 

What did Jesus do for 40 days and 40 nights in the wilderness?

He fasted.

Now, scientists have known since the 1930s that fasting is one of the few things proven to make you live longer.

But now, almost a century later, we're beginning to understand why. According to new findings from some of the world's leading cancer researchers...

 

Fasting KILLS cancer cells!

 

It's based on a principal scientists call "differential stress response."

 See, normal cells respond to the mild stress of a period of fasting by going into a sort of survival mode—slowing down and conserving resources.

 But cancer cells just keep going full steam—at least... they try.

 When cancer cells continue to divide and grow like crazy—but don't get the resources they need to fuel their growth—something remarkable happens.

 After a while, tumor growth slows dramatically. And soon after that, cancer cells begin dying.

The research began in 1988, when a test was done on mice injected with terminal cancer. Half the mice were fasted every other day, and the other half ate normally.

 Researchers were shocked when 4 times as many fasted rats survived!

Now, most of the human studies have used fasting as an adjuvant; which means it was used as a complimentary treatment along with chemo. And the results of those trials are simply mind-blowing.

First of all, researchers noted that fasting greatly reduces the horrific side effects of chemotherapy. Because of differential stress response, fasting actually makes chemo more toxic to cancer cells and less harmful to healthy cells!

But here's the key—it also speeds up the destruction of tumors dramatically.

And in the most recent trial, which was completed just recently, lead researcher Dr. Valter Longo went so far as to say that fasting alone could soon be a replacement for chemotherapy.

We're talking about one of the top cancer researchers in the world.

So if you're battling cancer right now, you should absolutely consider adding fasting to your treatment regimen.

Of course, going 40 days and nights without food is not practical or safe for most people.

But there are many different types of fasts.

A water-only fast (80 ounces of water daily for one to three days) is the most aggressive type and should be used only by those in good health.

Juice fasts (80 to 100 ounces of juice daily for two to five days) also are common and are especially useful for boosting energy. These fasts often include the fresh juice of car-rots, lemons, apples, beets and celery. Wheatgrass juice, which helps detoxify the liver and kidneys, and other greens also can be added.

For a modified type of fast, you can eat homemade broths and soups (three to four bowls a day containing carrots, celery, chicken broth, potatoes and spices)...or drink 30 to 40 ounces daily of detoxification meal-replacement drinks (containing rice or pea-protein, added vitamins and minerals and detoxifying herbs, such as milk thistle and green tea extract), plus 32 ounces of water. Meal-replacement drinks are commonly available through natural health-care practitioners and at health-food stores.

But one of the best ways to get the cancer-killing benefits without getting too extreme is a procedure known as intermittent fasting.

If you've been following the health headlines, you've probably heard about intermittent fasting. It's a great way to lose weight. But what you probably won't hear in the news is that it could also help you beat cancer.

Intermittent fasting is easy to do. One of the most popular procedures is called alternate-day fasting, where you limit your food intake to under 500 calories one day, then eat normally the next day.

Another option is to fast for 16-18 hours every day. This is also easy to do—just skip breakfast, eat lunch around noon, dinner around 6 or 7, and don't eat anything after dinner.

Try it out and see what works best for you. And if you're going through chemo, keep in mind that the research proves that fasting reduces the side effects while increasing the effectiveness!

Indeed, fasting can provide a powerful boost to conventional treatments, and a remarkably effective (and side-effect-free) treatment on its own.

But there's more to the protocol.

 

The Matthew 4 Protocol: Part 2

 

Part 2 of the Matthew 4 Protocol comes from Jesus I' comeback" to Satan's temptation: "Man does not live by bread alone..."

How could this simple statement contain a hidden healing message? Well, consider this:

When you eat bread, you're giving cancer exactly what it needs to grow, spread and metastasize.

And it's more than just bread, it's anything that your body converts to glucose—which means nearly all carbohydrates.

Let me explain. Cancer cells feed on glucose. It's not just their preferred fuel, it's the only fuel they're capable of using. That's the key difference between cancer cells and normal, healthy cells.

Healthy cells can adapt to the absence of glucose by burning fat for energy.

But because of a genetic defect, cancer cells cannot. They can ONLY feed on glucose.

(Interestingly, this is another reason fasting works so well—in addition to initiating the differential stress response, it also starves cancer cells of glucose.)

So how do we exploit this little-known fact? Simple: stop feeding cancer. This is done by combining regular fasts with a diet that severely restricts carbohydrates, and replaces them with moderate amounts of protein, and healthy fats. This is called the ketogenic diet (also known as metabolic therapy").

The ketogenic diet includes meat, seafood, eggs, and non-starchy vegetables. And that's all. That means you'll be eliminating ALL bread, grains, rice, corn, pasta, etc. AND all sweets and fruits.

After some time on the ketogenic diet, your metabolism will become "fat adapted" which means it will burn fat for energy by default. (Intermittent fasting is known to speed up the transition to fat burning mode.)

It may seem extreme to eliminate so many foods from your diet, especially when the majority of your calories are coming from carbs. But just keep in mind—anytime you eat those carbohydrate-rich foods, you're supplying cancer with exactly what it needs to grow.

But eliminate those foods, and you will literally starve cancer out of your body. It's that simple!

There's an impressive body of research to support this fact, and it's growing all the time.

Just last year, a group of German researchers published an exhaustive review of over 160 studies on diet and cancer.

 

A single study can be twisted to say just about anything, but when 160 studies lead to the same conclusions? That's when you should pay attention.

 And the German researchers concluded that restricting carbs prevents cancer and dramatically slows cancer growth.

 But that's not all. The most recent studies have shown that substances called ketones, which are byproducts of burning fat instead of carbs (hence "ketogenic" diet), have powerful anti-tumor properties.

 So a ketogenic diet plan not only stops feeding cancer cells, it can actually turn your blood into an anti-cancer compound!

 The speed with which this diet can starve cancer out of your body is truly miraculous.

Just ask Fred Hatfield, who was recently profiled on the Christian Broadcasting Network news show. That's a form of cancer that mainstream treatments are virtually powerless against.

But Fred achieved complete remission through the ketogenic diet. And so can you.

 

So here's a step-by-step overview of the Matthew 4 Protocol:

 

Step 1: Begin eliminating non-vegetable carbohydrates from your diet. Start with the worst offenders: refined carbohydrates like bread, pasta, sweets, soft drinks and juices. Then move onto less obvious sources like rice, corn and other grains, fruits, and starchy vegetables like potatoes.

Step 2: Replace the missing calories with non-starchy vegetables (green leafy ones are best), high-quality proteins (preferably organic, grass-fed beef, pasture-raised chicken and eggs, and wild caught salmon), and healthy fats (coco-nut oil, olive oil, avocados).

There are plenty of books that go into great detail on the ketogenic diet if you're interested in learning more. One of my favorites is The Conan Ketogenic Diet, available on Amazon.

The thing to remember is that your body will be using fat as fuel, so it's important to include a source of healthy fat with every meal: half an avocado, salad dressing made with olive oil, coconut oil used for sautéing meats and veggies, etc.

Step 3: Introduce an intermittent fasting program to speed up the process. This will help your body move into a fat-adapted state. At the same time, research shows that it will dramatically slow tumor growth and eventually begin to kill cancer cells on its own. I suggest starting with the 18 hour fast model, since this seems to be the easiest method for most folks.

Three simple steps, no drugs or supplements, zero side effects, and it doesn't cost a penny. See why Big Pharma doesn't want this information to get out?

My prayer is that the Matthew 4 Protocol gives you real hope in your time of need.

 

Additional cancer-fighting tips

from Dr. Mark Stengler

 

Consume a diet that emphasizes a variety of fresh, natural and minimally processed foods (more on this in chapter 7). Include a selection of vegetables, some fruits (such as berries and kiwifruit), fish, chicken (free-range or organic), legumes, and nuts. Eat healthfully—and you will lay the foundation for everything else that you can do to lower your long-term risk for cancer.

 

My favorite anticancer foods...

 

Broccoli. Cruciferous vegetables are my top anti-cancer food, and broccoli heads the list. It is rich in sulforaphane, an antioxidant that helps the liver break down and destroy cancer-causing toxins. Sulforaphane also increases the activity of liver enzymes that help to get cancerous substances out of the body. (Sulforaphane is available as a supplement, although I recommend people get this phytonutrient through food.) Even better, broccoli sprouts contain 50 times more sulforaphane than that found in regular broccoli. A product called BroccoSprouts is available at select supermarkets (877-747-1277, www.broccosprouts. corn). Broccoli sprouts also have been shown to fight H. pylori, a type of bacteria believed to cause stomach cancer.

Advice: Eat one-half cup of raw or lightly steamed broccoli daily. (Boiling reduces its nutritional value.) Add some broccoli sprouts to your salads or sandwiches.

Tomatoes. This fruit is rich in lycopene, the antioxidant that gives tomatoes their red color. Studies have found that tomatoes reduce the risk for prostate cancer—and also might reduce the risk for lung and stomach cancers.

Advice: Consume cooked tomatoes or tomato sauce. Lycopene is best absorbed from cooked tomatoes because cooking breaks down the fiber in the tomatoes. A little fat (e.g., olive oil) also enhances absorption. Include one serving of tomato sauce (one-half cup) in your diet several times a week. Watermelon and guava also contain a lot of lycopene.

Cold-water fish. Salmon, sardines and trout are rich in healthy omega-3 fats—specifically eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). EPA and DHA have potent anti-inflammatory benefits. Low intake of these fats appears to be a factor in breast, colon, pancreatic and stomach cancers.

Advice: Eat cold-water fish at least once or twice a week, or take a fish oil supplement daily that contains 1 gram (g) of EPA and DHA. Or use krill oil, a type of fish oil from shrimplike crustaceans.

Garlic. Slice or dice a garlic clove, and a relatively inert compound called allicin undergoes an amazing cascade of chemical changes. Nearly all allicin-generated compounds function as antioxidants that prevent the types of cell mutations that give rise to cancer. Evidence suggests that garlic might help protect against cancers of the colon, prostate, esophagus, larynx, ovaries and kidneys.

Advice: Consume garlic regularly. Because chopping and cooking garlic seem to increase its biological activity, sauté or bake it rather than eating it whole or raw. There is no recommended serving size for garlic, but the more you consume, the better.

Spinach. Spinach and other "greens," such as chard and collard greens, are rich in antioxidants that protect cells from the type of damage that can create cancerous mutations. One study published in Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry gave spinach the top "bioactivity index" ranking of vegetables for its ability to protect against cancer.

Advice: Eat spinach and other greens daily. You can make spinach salads or 50/50 lettuce and spinach salads, or gently sauté spinach. A single serving is equivalent to one cup of raw or one-half cup of cooked spinach or greens.

 MY TOP ANTI-CANCER SUPPLEMENTS

Research on the role of individual supplements in reducing cancer risk has been especially confusing. Taking all evidence into account, I'm convinced that these five supplements have clear benefits...

Vitamin D. If you were to take just one immune-enhancing supplement to lower your long-term risk for cancer, vitamin D would be the one to choose. More than 60 studies have found that high levels of vitamin D offer broad protection against many types of cancer. A recent German study reported that people with low vitamin D levels were one-third more likely to die of any type of cancer.

Advice: Take at least 1,000 international units (IU) of vitamin D-3 daily. Vitamin D-3, with its slightly different molecular structure than D-2, is a more bioactive form of the vitamin, which means that the body can use it more readily. Take 2,000 IU if you don't get much sun or have a dark complexion. (Dark skin absorbs less of the rays necessary for conversion to vitamin D.)

Best: Have your blood tested to determine how much vitamin D you need.

Vitamin K, Two recent studies have shown an unexpected benefit of vitamin K--that it reduces the odds of developing breast and liver cancers.

Possible mechanism: Vitamin K activates osteocalcin, a protein involved in making strong bones. Recent re-search found that osteocalcin also may function as an anticancer nutrient.

Advice: Take 300 micrograms (mcg) of either vitamin K-1 or vitamin K-2, the forms most often studied.

Caution: Vitamin K may increase blood clotting. Do not take vitamin K if you also are taking blood-thinning medication unless you are being monitored by a doctor.

Selenium. This essential dietary mineral forms part of glutathione peroxidase, an antioxidant enzyme that helps the liver break down cancer-causing toxins. A study published in The Journal of the American Medical Association found that 200 mcg daily of selenium led to significant reductions in the risk for prostate, colon and lung cancers within just a few years.

Advice: Take 200 mcg daily. Don't take a higher dose (which could be toxic] without the supervision of a nutrition-oriented doctor.

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). I believe that modest amounts of this vitamin-like nutrient may reduce an individual's general risk for cancer. Studies have shown that large amounts of CoQ10 can inhibit the spread of breast cancer and boost immunity.. and may have benefits in other types of cancer as well. A recent study of women with breast cancer who were on the drug tamoxifen found that a combination of 100 mg of CoQ10 daily and vitamins B-2 (10 mg) and B-3 (50 mg) boosted the activity of enzymes that can repair genes.

Advice: Take 100 mg daily. If you already have been treated for cancer, you should take 300 mg daily.

Lycopene. This antioxidant helps prevent cell damage. Several small studies have shown that lycopene supplements can reduce the size of prostate tumors and their tendency to spread. They also can lower levels of prostate-specific antigen [PSA], a common marker of prostate cancer risk.

Advice: For prostate cancer prevention and for men with elevated PSA levels, I recommend taking 5 mg to 10 mg of lycopene daily, even if you eat lycopene-rich foods. If you have been diagnosed with prostate cancer, discuss taking 30 mg daily with your physician. Use tomato-based (not synthetic) lycopene, which contains other beneficial antioxidants.

Note: Some multivitamins may contain these nutrients but not in the amounts recommended for cancer prevention. Check the label of your multivitamin, and add to it, based on the recommendations above.
