Got 2 minutes to spare? Then sit back and enjoy a mix of fact, fantasy & tongue-n-cheek from “yours truly” (Dr. Anthony G. Payne)

 

Looking for treatment options for ALS, heart disease, cancer or eczema?

The Wizard of  MusumenPUBLISHED AS: Stepping out from behind the curtain

Many know me as “Anthony the writer”. Many doctors and clinics and labs know me as “Anthony the theorist”.  Actually a more apt moniker might be “Anthony the behind the scenes guy” as so much of my work is on behalf of companies and individual docs who pay to get my ideas and handiwork and affix their name to it without any mention of my authorship.  All this ghostwriting, ghost-editing and ghost-theorizing has helped carve out a niche for me as, well,…a living, breathing ghost (The working world’s invisible man).

However, some of the ventures and projects I am involved with can now be divulged albeit sans key details that could be ripped off and exploited by corporate competition aka money grubbing predators and scavengers.

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS): Like cancer ALS is a hellacious nut to crack on all kinds of levels. However, evidence has emerged that suggests the disease is influence by aberrant proteins called prions and disease progress reflects the spread of these prions in the central nervous system (CNS). As part of my consultancy work I crafted an experimental combination drug and nondrug anti-prion regimen which was entrusted to MDs abroad (which they then approved and began using). This plus other novel forms of intervention slowed progression to a crawl in many treated ALS patients and has so far spared all of those treated from compromised respiratory functioning.  Of the handful who have died all of them simply went to sleep one night and didn’t wake up (“A good death” in many people’s book).

Atherosclerosis (Arterial blockage): The challenge of reversing arterial blockage has intrigued and engaged me since the mid-1980s. In fact, back then I was working with a Tibetan herbal formula called PADMA 28 that had accumulated evidence (from lab studies and also  randomized clinical trials) that it significantly reduced players in the arterial plaque-building process. I was, in fact, so impressed by the science that I approached the company that had brought PADMA 28 into the USA from Switzerland (where it is Swiss FDA approved to treated intermittent claudication), Berkley Health Network (BHN – later sold and reborn as Pacific BioLogic, Inc.), and began sharing ideas concerning other applications and experimental uses. It didn’t take long before their principle technical people asked me to serve as a scientific advisor which I did. Later I did experiments in which I took a large group of guinea pigs and divided them into 2 groups: Both ate a high saturated & trans fat rich diet geared to produce artery clogging diet which resulted in significant arterial blockage. However, one also was given PADMA 28 in their chow which eventually reversed their blockage. It did this, I think, because it dropped serum lipids and triglycerides so low that their bodies began mobilizing fats and such from their arterial plague. It also countered arterial and systemic inflammation which is a player in the plaque-building process.

In the years since I have added dietary and other measures to the PADMA 28 (now marketed as PADMA BASIC®) to increase plague reversal. Since I am not a physician and cannot diagnose or prescribe treatments, I have entrusted my ever-evolving ideas & resulting regimens to licensed MDs and DOs for their discretionary use. What has emerged is simply this: Many cases have accrued in which people with significant arterial blockage have demonstrated reversal to the point whereby angina and other symptoms ceased.

Note bene: I have no commercial interest in PADMA in any of its incarnations nor in any firm or such that markets or sells it.

Cancer especially advanced metastatic malignancy: Back in 1999 Wake Forest University researcher Zheng Cui, MD, PhD showed that there are super cancer-fighting immune cells called granulocytes in young animals that could obliterate cancer in old ones (mice). Borrowing a page from Dr. Cui’s animal work I created a regimen in which I proposed that pooled granulocytes isolated from the blood of young folks would be given daily to advanced cancer patients over a 10 to 14 day period (But given only to those who have exhausted conventional cancer fighting treatments and whose cancer is spreading and is predicted to end their lives in short order).

This approach was entrusted to a group of Mexican hematologists including one of the leading ones in all of Mexico and was approved for experimental clinical use (with the number of granulocytes and the frequency of their infusions to follow a strict protocol I worked out). The types of cancer subsequently treated included prostate, breast, lung, stomach and colorectal.

There is a <1% risk of a graft v. host reaction even months after a treatment cycle is concluded which all the patients doing it were informed of as part of informed consent.

To-date all advanced, end stage cancer patients treated have responded favorably with no graft v. host reactions occurring at all. Half of those treated experienced partial remission and half, full remission. Some have been technically cancer free for many, many years now.

Eczema: Back in the early 1990s J.I. Harper, MD at the Hospital for Sick Children in London, England put an ancient Chinese herbal eczema tea to the test in a double-blind placebo-controlled clinical involving children with eczema. The tea produced a tremendous diminution in itching, pustules, and scales, for example, while the children who sipped the placebo tea (the control group) did not significantly improve.

The herbs in the eczema tea were published but not the amounts of each. I decided to figure out this out carry out my own line of research. I recruited a large number of eczema patients – children, adolescents, and adults – mixed together the botanicals in varying proportions, and then gave out various versions. (Unlike the London study, however, I opted to use an encapsulated form as opposed to a foul-tasting tea).

It took over two years working at it part-time to arrive at the most effective combination for managing eczema, but effective it is! (My results paralleled those seen in the London-based clinical trials). And it’s not effective for eczema, but for other conditions in which certain species of free radicals and highly inflammatory substances called leukotrienes and prostaglandins play a role. The conditions which have shown a significant response to the eczema formula include asthma, emphysema, psoriasis, certain rheumatic conditions, and numerous neurological maladies.

I turned over the Eczema or E-Tea formula to a company I was consulting for at the time, Prestige Chinese Teas, in 1993. I’d known and collaborated with PCT founder and President Sunny Wong since 1986 and knew he’d so all he could to get E-Tea into the hands of medical consumers at a cost they could afford, which he did. I did not ask for and ever received any proceeds from the sale of E-Tea (as I did not want to add to its cost by doing so) and ceased to be paid as a consultant for PCT in 1999 when I left the USA to teach in Japan. As I anticipated, PCT has continued to make E-Tea available at a cost that is kind to consumer purse strings: http://www.teastohealth.com/skin.html

Sunny and his people have received many, many letters and statements from eczema patients, nurses and dermatologists down through the years attesting to E-Tea’s efficacy.

There are many more vexing medical challenges I have tackled down through the years (as a theorist) and a whole litany of them which has been placed on my plate by doctors, companies and even sufferers seeking answers that I am currently working on. And while I “live and move and have my being” for the most part in the Shadowlands you may come across my solutions down the line — albeit you likely will not know I am behind it.

Eradicating cancer: Metabolic monkey wrenching including use of autophagy inhibitors

On 9-6-2012 ScienceDaily ran this article:  http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2012/09/120906074249.htmAcidic Microenvironments in Tumors Aid Tumor Cell Survival, Researchers Find

Here is a link to the full paper(Cancer Res 2012;72:3938-3947. Published Online First June 19, 2012) for those interested in perusing this: http://cancerres.aacrjournals.org/content/72/16/3938.full.pdf+html  – Chronic Autophagy Is a Cellular Adaptation to Tumor Acidic pH Microenvironments

Interestingly, my Metabolic Oncolytic Regimen (original body of theory – 1990 — various permutations since) is based on lowering pH in hypoxic regions of solid tumors to lethal levels: http://www.healingcare4u.org/The%20Metabolic%20Oncolytic%20Regimen%20(Revised%202011).pdf

However, as the paper in the Cancer Research Journal (link above) signals, tumor cells in acidic regions adapt and survive by chronically activating autophagy pathways. Thankfully though, this can be circumvented by use of autophagy inhibitors:

Hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine are autophagy inhibitors.

http://www.nature.com/nbt/journal/v30/n7/fig_tab/nbt.2285_T2.htmlTable 2: Autophagy inducers and inhibitors for cancer treatment

This line of work & reasoning suggests that a marriage of the MOR (or a similar “metabolic anti-tumor monkey wrenching” approach) with one or more autophagy inhibitors should deliver a death blow to at least some solid tumors.

Study reveals that masturbation reduces odds of developing prostate cancer

There have been a number of studies that suggest that regular masturbation by men, especially during their youth to perhaps age 50, flushes carcinogens that tend to accumulate in the prostate from the gland and by so doing help prevent initiation of cancer in this gland. One recent one was carried out by the Council of Victoria which revealed that men who masturbate to ejaculation more than five times per week were one-third less likely to develop prostate cancer.

If this correlation is true, it logically follows that the greater the degree of prostate “emptying” the more likely a man is to purge his prostate of cancer-causing compounds and thus the lower his risk of developing carcinoma of the prostate. There are a number of ways to (ahem) pull this off:

(1) Prostate massage: This commercial website appears to provide some really sound advice in this regard. Note that I have no financial or other interest in this website of any firm it links to or promotes.

(2) Masturbate while using the a prostate electrostimulation device. These provide users with what amounts to a gentle though powerful pulsating “electric massage” of the prostate which is highly stimulating and pleasurable. Many men report having more copious ejaculations when they climax while using this type of gadget (Which is the goal when it comes to draining the prostate of fluids that might harbor carcinogenic substances). It is also reputed to jump-start the erection machinery in the male body which leads to firmer, stronger erections.

(3) Use the Aneros prostate massager or something similar during masturbatory sessions .
