Food IS the best medicine. It’s the backbone of the metabolic (Biorepair) approach we have supported now for over 50 years. A well balanced diet strengthens and energizes immune function — our innate healing capability that protects us against disease.

But, sometimes, for those struggling with a severe chronic or autoimmune condition, more than just the right foods may be needed to bring the immune function up to par. Indeed, a weak or suppressed immunity is the hallmark of chronic disease — the body does not have the “umph” it needs to kick out things that don’t belong there. We would like to introduce you to a therapy that has come along in the last 20 + years which we feel can provide just such a helpful boost. It is not a cure-all, but, when used in conjunction with a good metabolic program, it has shown itself to be a real change agent for a wide range of patients and conditions. In the U.S. you probably won’t hear about this from your conventional doctors (though that may be changing; access is easier in many other countries), because it’s not a big money maker like chemo or radiation. With virtually no toxicity or adverse side effects, many alternative doctors have been using it for some time and with good, sometimes amazing results, It’s called Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) and we think you should know about it.

To your health,
Foundation for Advancement in Cancer Therapy (F.A.C.T.)

P.S. As summer comes ’round the bend, we hope you’ll take a dip into some green territory: feel your face in the sun, go barefoot on the grass or sand, lie down and contemplate a tree or two. Along with good food and friends, what could be better medicine? We truly appreciate your continued support and donations all these many years and look forward to staying in touch on FacebookTwitter and our YouTube channel.

Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) – A Game Changer
The LDN story begins with Naltrexone (not low dose, a drug first developed in the 1960s as a strategy for reducing addiction to narcotics and alcohol). It is an opiate receptor blocking agent so that, when taken orally in 50 mg. doses a day, drugs like heroin cannot be absorbed into the body and, because no “high” would result, it was thought that addiction could be eliminated. However, in extensive studies Naltrexone proved so effective at blocking the dangerous narcotics that addicts felt miserable. They could not function. Many became suicidal. The therapy was deemed a failure and Naltrexone was shelved as an addiction treatment. In 1984, however, it was approved as Naloxone by the FDA as an emergency technique in overdose cases: if administered within 24 hours of the O.D., the lethal substances are blocked from entering the system and lives can be saved. Policemen in many cities are now equipped with Naloxone for such emergencies. READ MORE
Sesame Snaps*1 1/2 cups organic, hulled sesame seeds
1 Tablespoon or so cacao powder
1/2-1 Tablespoon (or to taste) maple syrup or raw honey
About 4-6 Tablespoons pure water, preferably distilledPlace seeds in a blender. Grind to as fine a powder as possible, pausing a few times to stir up from the bottom, just to make sure all seeds are  ground. Transfer powdered seeds to a bowl. Add cacao power and blend thoroughly. Then mix in sweetener until well distributed. Add enough water to form a nice “dough,” kneading with your hands. Form about 1 inch diameter balls and place on a cookie sheet or simply take spoonfuls of “dough” and place on the sheet. Lightly press each piece flat with the bottom of a glass and let refrigerate a few hours to firm up, before storing in a jar. Snaps will keep at least a week in the fridge, considerably longer in the freezer, ready to pull out for any occasion.*Snaps is a name derived from the German or Middle Dutch word snappen meaning “to seize quickly.” The first time you serve these tasty snacks, you will understand how appropriate the origin of this word is!
