Asparagus

When I was in the USN I was stationed in Key West , FL. I worked at the clinic at Naval Air Station on Big Coppitt Key just a few mile north of Key West . The hospital at Key West was for outpatient only for retired armed forces personnel that lived in the area. If you needed to be hospitalized you were sent to Homestead AFB Florida. I had the day off and just went inside the hospital (Corpsman barracks were next to hospital). There was a retired navy man that worked in the lab and he was very interesting gentleman to talk with. He was a retired biochemist from the USN. I mentioned that I knew of a sailor that has a very bad kidney infection.

Now this elderly gent told me the man should have eaten more asparagus and he wouldn't have that problem. I asked why? I'll never forget him saying do you eat asparagus and I said yes. He replied you notice how your urine stinks after eating asparagus? I said well I never thought it was what I ate but yes it does have a pungent odor. It is because it is detoxifying your body of harmful chemicals!!!

This was back in 1986 when I was stationed there and to read this email again I had to share this story...Eat more asparagus my friends.

Asparagus -- Who knew?

My Mom had been taking the full-stalk canned style asparagus, pureed it and took 4 tablespoons in
the morning and 4 tablespoons later in the day. She did this for over a month. She is on chemo pills for Stage 3
lung cancer in the pleural area and her cancer cell count went from 386 down to 125 as of this past week.
Her oncologist said she will not need to see him for 3 months.

THE ARTICLE:

Several years ago I met a man seeking asparagus for a friend who had cancer. He gave me a copy of an article,
entitled "Asparagus For Cancer" printed in the Cancer News Journal, December 1979. I will share it here, just as it was shared with me:

I am a biochemist, and have specialized in the relation of diet to health for over 50 years. Several years ago, I learned
of the discovery of Richard R. Vensal, D.D.S. that asparagus might cure cancer. Since then, I have worked
with him on his project. We have accumulated a number of favorable case histories.

Here are a few examples:

Case No. 1, A man with an almost hopeless case of Hodgkin's disease (cancer of the lymph glands) who
was completely incapacitated. Within 1 year of starting the asparagus therapy, his doctors were unable to
detect any signs of cancer, and he was back on a schedule of strenuous exercise

Case No. 2, A successful businessman, 68 years old, suffered from cancer of the bladder for 16 years.
After years of medical treatments, including radiation without improvement, he began taking asparagus. Within
3 months, examinations revealed that his bladder tumor had disappeared and that his kidneys were normal.

Case No. 3, On March 5th 1971, a man who had lung cancer was put on the operating table where they found
lung cancer so widely spread that it was inoperable. The surgeon sewed him up and declared his case
hopeless. On April 5th he heard about the Asparagus therapy and immediately started taking it. By August,
x-ray pictures revealed that all signs of the cancer had disappeared. He is now back at his regular business
routine.

Case No. 4, A woman had been troubled for a number of years with skin cancer. She developed different skin cancers
which were diagnosed by the acting specialist as advanced. Within 3 months after beginning asparagus therapy, the skin specialist
said her skin looked fine with no more skin lesions. This woman reported that the asparagus therapy also cured her kidney disease,
which had started in 1949. She had over 10 operations for kidney stones, and was receiving government disability payments for an inoperable, terminal, kidney condition. She attributes the cure of this kidney trouble entirely to the asparagus treatment.

I was not surprised at this result as `The elements of materia medica', edited in 1854 by a Professor at the
University of Pennsylvania , stated that asparagus was used as a popular remedy for kidney stones. He even
referred to experiments, in 1739, on the power of asparagus in dissolving stones. Note the dates!
We would have other case histories but the medical establishment has interfered with our obtaining some
of the records.

I am therefore appealing to readers to spread this good news and help us to gather a large
number of case histories that will overwhelm the medical skeptics about this unbelievably simple and
natural remedy.

For the treatment, asparagus should be cooked before using. Fresh or canned asparagus can be
used. I have corresponded with the two leading caners of asparagus, Giant and Stoke, and I am satisfied that
these brands contain no pesticides or preservatives.

Place the cooked asparagus in a blender and liquefy to a make a puree. Store in the refrigerator. Give the patient
4 full tablespoons twice daily, morning and evening.

Patients usually show some improvement in 2-4 weeks.

It can be diluted with water and used as a cold or hot drink.

his suggested dosage is based on present experience, but certainly larger amounts can do no harm and may be
needed in some cases.
As a biochemist I am convinced of the old saying that `what cures can prevent.' Based on this theory, my wife and I have
been using asparagus puree as a beverage with our meals.

We take 2 tablespoons diluted in water to suit our taste with breakfast and with dinner. I take mine hot and my wife prefers hers cold. For years we have made it a practice to have blood surveys taken as part of our regular checkups. The last blood survey,
taken by a medical doctor who specializes in the nutritional approach to health, showed substantial improvements in all categories over the last one, and we can attribute these improvements to nothing but the asparagus drink.

As a biochemist, I have made an extensive study of all aspects of cancer, and all of the
proposed cures. As a result, I am convinced that asparagus fits in better with the latest theories about cancer.

Asparagus contains a good supply of protein called histones, which are believed to be active in controlling
cell growth. For that reason, I believe asparagus can be said to contain a substance that I call cell growth
normalizer.. That accounts for its action on cancer and in acting as a general body tonic In any event,
regardless of theory, asparagus used as we suggest, is a harmless substance. The FDA cannot prevent you
from using it and it may do you much good. It has been reported by the US National Cancer Institute, that
asparagus is the highest tested food containing glutathione, which is considered one of the body's
most potent anticarcinogens and antioxidants.

Just a side note... In case you are wondering why this has not been made public, there is no profit in curing cancer!

Interesting! Good thing I like asparagus! I think I will be making it a more regular part of my diet, just for GP. Thanks!

Cool!

So much knowledge seems to have passed away. Especially since medicine makes money off of people being sick. Makes one wonder why they would want everyone healthy???

True! There are a lot of "home" remedies that work. For instance, eating cherries (or drinking cherry juice) treats/prevents gout. Eating local made honey treats, and prevents seasonal allergies (until you travel to a different area). Hot caffeinated beverages ease asthma/respiratory issues. These are an example of the ones I have personal experience with, and they work well. Of course, most modern docs will say the results are psychosomatic, but I don't buy it.

Shawn, it's actually Black Cherry juice to prevent or cure a gout onset. Its what I use, have for years...

There was a world of knowledge that passed away when we became a big pharma and insurance moderated health care system. So many doctors do not know how to cure diseases, but can recommend and prescribe a medication to cure the symptoms. How many examples of that can you point to in your experience?? probably many.

Do things in moderation. Eat veggies and fruits. Exercise. Stay out in the cold. Work up a sweat and breath hard every day if you can. Laugh a lot, go to bed early and wake up at a decent hour...all simple things to do that lead to long lives
