Part 1 of 4 – Super Foods and Best Prostate Health Supplements



so good evening it's a pleasure to speak to you the submission my name is Ron Toki I'm an MD works for inspire help and actually I've been involved in an integrated lesson used to call pulmonary medicine long time ago in holistic medicine when I began in 1975 actually you just open up a new standard for inspired help right here in Victoria where I'm taking from Victoria British Columbia we're going to have our official opening tomorrow with one of the ministers of the provincial government presiding over our opening and this will be the first really expansion of integrated program into the mainstream of medicine not in really in the world then we're going to take Integrative Cancer Care which is really about taking care to you and the illness and bring that to the large numbers of people the province of British Columbia so for myself personally with another medical colleague dr. Jim Tucker we started the first integrative centered cat back in 1976 November the first so this is the 35th anniversary event a couple of young docs bringing some ideas about prevention and self-care to the community and now you know it's become much more partisan mainstream right and soon to become a much more important to medicine itself as we integrate these models of self-care in 20 one of the most serious disease be the categories cancer and what a difference it makes both in quality of life and incomes so we're going to talk about prostate cancer tonight and last week my colleague used to read by the char usually % we have a two day seminar we talked about self care to our patients and she and I present the set of the segment on nutrition and foods and supplements and we call the the chapter food as medicine because that's the primary focus of our of our work with patients from the nutritional point of view and food is the main thing but there is a place with supplements and the superfoods of our nutrition sometimes have to be taken in capsule form or liquid form just to get them in particularly when you've got cancer and your appetite weight may not be the same where your assimilation may not be the same as it was if you're completely healthy we'll also talk about vitamins in their place in cancer care particular prostate we'll keep it to prostate cancer so let's move through and talk a little bit more about some of the things that is far health does and who we are we're definitely a national leader Integrative Cancer Care it's the largest and longest standing center if it does provide patients with care body mind and spirit could say it's a not-for-profit society we have a full now treated 6,000 cancer patients over the five past 14 years it's changed about 600 a year and now we're going to expand for more places of British Columbia so the numbers are going to increase and indeed next Monday will be our first day of seeing patients in Victorian our new center we're also the first positions in CAD would be funded provide Integrative Cancer Care on a salary to the medical services plan so most of our services are covered there's no cause to see our physicians myself included now inspired health helps people with cancer to integrate the concept of health which means taking care of yourself to the best of your ability into cancer treatment and recovery and there's growing evidence that this is an innovative approach and you do get engaged in your own care so there's something quite different about doing that and just basically submitting to the treatments in doing the normal things if you do a little bit more for yourself and the wind again me prevent a pro come you maybe should have started before you got the disease it's not too late we found clearly that most of the things you recommend even for advanced cancers and say a non-profit cancer space for answers when you begin to do them you to better you slow the disease down you get you feel better and by all the gauges of quality of life you do better so and there's a whole pile of things around prostate cancer only so wishes what I'm going to talk about finding some parts so there's been a better approach it also reduces the likelihood of cancer recurrence and it even if the exercise component itself produces the risk of recurrence and so a lot of urologists are talking about what an hour of exercise a day in your program because that has an effect controlling your weight and the other part of that is diet as a cause of inflammation in the body which itself promotes cancer and we're going to talk about that today and supplements that habit and the inflammatory effect that can help reduce that risk when we see patients individually at our Center we have our two day seminar and we have a whole bunch of class as we can tell patients to take but first of all we see them for amazingly enough an hour and a half to take all the things they've done for themselves in the path to change them around into an effective health plan that they can do day by day and we have nutritionists and counselors and exercise therapist to help people put that in action so that's the program it's very successful and a lot of fun to be working in this area because this is a location empowerment you know the right to choose to go into the treatments but you know collapse our way bit more bring up your strength you know a part of you that it's not a question just to fighting the cancer but using you will your courage your heart your passion to change the way you behaved so that the cancer itself anyway becomes less important than your strength that is reflective of the strength of your immune system your ability to heal so that's what we're aiming so it's a whole person approach an hour and a half is it ever get a chance to build the person i'm talking with that having done that well before i came too but for the last four and a half years i find that there's it's amazing what you can do is just a few a few key suggestions the key wants for that individual and give them overall plan and then the ability to execute it for example an infinite integrated center and what we do recommend here because you know if you look around the internet there's lots of things out there a lot of them not have enough don't have enough evidence there's no somebody's uncle did it or the nangel from a friend do this to that we have chosen to do the things that there's been some research on so all the things we recommend are evidence-based and we change them when new research comes up to suggested that might not be the right way but it's also wisdom informed because a lot of things we recommended and say into our are really common sense that just practical ways of doing Lily enhance self-care I guess our our idea is is that you guys founder and the cancer is not as strong as a result of that you get stronger union system to get stronger and so you're building to resist the cancer along with your chain is to get a better regression and no returns at all or much kool-aid recurrence that's the theme you know you stay strong the cancer is not as strong it gets weaker you get stronger I like metaphors we also really believe in family and community involvement support from your family and friends and that the message of your own self here in your success sort of gets translated to all these layers so everybody starts taking better care of themselves and gets involved in that in the path you chosen which is doing good things for yourself so there's a definition of help us been around for a long time and I could actually save it this was after I was born I wasn't walking all that well at the time but I could get around in 1946 the wh 0 defined health not really as the absence of disease or infirmity but a state of complete physical mental and social well-being and that that's apply to society and as well as individuals it's a great definition and that's the thing we aim for vibrant healthy and here's the quote we start our two-hour presentation on nutrition and healthy nutrition and supplements pages well good be your medicine electro medicine be your food Hippocrates were with that 2,300 years ago and it was a time when there weren't pharmaceutical companies around basically was nature was the supplier everything and the good food kept a healthy and then when he got sick the second line your medicine was again your food by offering the diet make it simpler perhaps and and also buy herbal medicine cuz that was the medicine of the time his on the base trust you heard Lisa Marie last week is an excellent diet but the I quality University of audit foods to decline to the methods of production of the food processing they are not the same sort of foods our grandparents II I'm talking about our grandparents people who watching this because eighty years ago everybody her dad industrial farming really only came in the 30s maybe just a little bit during the war but soon after World War part of that the farms are small they were self-sufficient they recycle the materials food processing is also contributed to some of the decrease in quality of the foods we eat as much as we eat things that are more highly processed in particular when it comes to garcia's and carbohydrates what over the years as I met all the major nutritionist in North America including people again a wild written books of my own colleague that I teach with regularly who teach active which of the positions and he's one of the top nutritional positions in the US and in a way where we coming to is that foods that comprise our original diet other ways to improve our nutrition and that original diet began originally when Otto gatherer dieter up to 11,000 years ago we were all eating that fashion we were hunting we were gathering and with early agriculture we really began to domesticate some of the animals we putted and began to cultivate the foods we gathered either way was always a regional diet things were fresh and they were alive and they had to compete in that environment so the meat was much healthier they were sitting in shivaji animals we ate the a journey of the vegetation and their original tax themselves and we hate them and together we form our web of life and we had that pretty strong immune systems because we didn't have the same medicines that as we have now and yet we we survived in difficult circumstances and when we became involved early agriculture the same things happen I quality super foods we go to the ground that we picked that we cultivated heat between the roots the the Pollard's the flowers that were natural to these things we began to sort of grow those those special grasses the wild Rice's who began to grow them and cultivate them and we had 10,000 years of personal agriculture after that all done organically locally adapted foods a lot of them super creuset we'll talk about that came from both of our agricultural past but originally was rooted in our original diet so I guarantee that's that's the big theme these days so what I want to do now is going to specifics of that and talk about superfoods in their extracts because like I said diet is the key thing who's themselves are the kinky things for us in this in this program so a couple things that we used right away our schemes and especially ground flax its fiber lignin set of any cancer affects in breast prostate and other cancers now you have to grind this seed and you're going to want to do things like add it to think like smoothies to your cereals to salads you don't want to cook it either because the Amiga tree wells that our president ground flax you want to have it just for the temperature that we have the food served and it also has important fibers that have a hormone sort of blocking effects for both women and then so in prostate cancer you want to block the antigens and the ligand fibers the ground flax are very good at binding up the the antigens that are circulating in your body and ultimately end up in your intestinal tract and their heads or up to this fiber and take it out of your system to the vowels and they sort of moderate and lower the levels of circulating antigens that come from me at the testes and the adrenals and work well with the androgen blockers to to improve the outcomes of prostate cancer suppression it's good to prevent it it's going to early prostate cancer and it's good for for advanced cancers and the other really important i under suspicion bigotries the epa and DHA they have any inflammatory effects that since cancers are inflammatory States the cancer itself creates an inflammatory environment which think the cancer cells offering much more much more efficiently and much more difficult to stop because that inflammatory environment so we change our overall state of our body to in any inflammatory state they are immune system which is involved in inflammation that is available to deal with the cancer and will start to move in the direction of historian tumor there's other superfoods besides the fish oils because fish oils basically required on the daily basis and we were writing fish seven days week we recommend about 1,200 milligrams officials EPA is usually a little more than eee DHA as a slightly stronger than II inflammatory except with they're both important it also helped with that diminishing the responses to a side effects that is because chemotherapies in some cancers and they don't interfere with the chemo they're not an antioxidant they just protect cell membranes garlic is a superfood it's been around for a long time the First Nations people on British Columbia guarded error Alliant family was called chemists it was exerting was passed down from from generation to generation it was guarded because of the medicinal effects that were known to be in that family there's actually a professor of the University of Montreal who I did whole series of studies on extracts of vegetables on cancer cell lines including krauser can't prostate cancer cell lines and some of these vegetable extracts had complete inhibiting effects on that on the growth of the cancer cells basically children and this is just the same as potent chemo drugs actually
