A few days before his 70th birthday in 2013, John Tanzi was diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer. His doctors told him that he only had a few months to live. Having seen some of his friends go through the pain and misery of chemotherapy, only to end up dying in the end, he decided that he was going to take a different approach.
The first thing John did was completely overhaul his diet. He cut out meat, refined sugar and dairy products based on the recommendations of CancerTutor.com and their “cancer diet”. As he continued to research his condition and possible treatments, John discovered a 250mg gel capsule form of Essiac tea. He combined the Essiac tea capsules with a beta glucan capsule for every 50 pounds of body weight, and to this day is still beating his doctor’s initial diagnosis.
Life Extension Magazine wrote: “Beta glucans have been used as an immunoadjuvant therapy (an immune system stimulant) for cancer since 1980, mostly in Japan.” The most common source of beta glucans in nature are shiitake mushrooms, which have been called an “anti-cancer superfood”. Shiitake mushrooms contain a specific beta glucan known as lentinan – which has been shown to shrink tumors and stop tumor development.
John advises other cancer patients to look for what is right for them, choose natural alternatives to cancer treatments, and most importantly to change their lifestyles. John’s facebook page “Holistic Cancer and Health Chat Room” is a free source of information for cancer patients, and provides information and support for anyone looking for advice.
