When cut into half, the sea cucumbers can survive as two separate animals or it can rejoin back as one again within 15 minutes. When sea cucumber is cut horizontally into half and with all the intestines remove, it can still survive as two separate animals. Within 3 to 6 months, it can grow back into a
full sea cucumber with all the intestines and internal organs in tact.
This is because the sea cucumber contains a CELL-GROWTH FACTOR which has the ability to accelerate the regeneration of cells, bones, collagen and skin.

pigmentation and wrinkles.
As reported by Ethan Evers, author of “The Eden Prescription, previous research on sea cucumber has demonstrated its ability to kill lung, breast, prostate, skin, colon, pancreatic, and liver cancer cells.
These extracts have also proven effective in killing leukemia and gioblastoma cells. Looks like we can
add yet another food to the list of anti-cancer foods.
Scientists believe a key compound known as frondoside A to be responsible. Frondoside A is a triterpenoid, diverse organic compounds found in the essential oils and oleoresins of plants.
This latest study, published in PLoS One, has confirmed just how powerful frondoside A truly is.
Researchers found it to kill 95% of ER+ breast cancer cells, 95% of liver cancer cells, 90% of melanoma cells, and 85-88% of three different types of lung cancer.
As Evers reports:
“But the benefits of this compound don’t just stop at directly inducing programmed cell death (apoptosis). It also inhibits angiogenesis (the ability of tumors to grow new blood vessels to get their food) and stops cancer metastasizing by impeding cell migration and invasion. Even more intriguing is the ability of frondoside A to activate our immune system’s natural killer cells to attack cancer cells.
This has been shown for breast cancer in particular but may also apply to all cancers, because it involves the immune system and not cancer cells directly. This may partially explain why frondoside A was so effective at shrinking lung tumors in mice that it rivaled chemo drugs in performance.”
When given to mice with non-small cell lung cancer, frondoside A was found to shrink tumors by 40% in only 10 days. Traditional chemo drugs shrunk the tumors by 47 percent, but the risks of chemo treatment are far greater than any side-effects or risks of sea cucumber. (Namely because there are no known risks associated with sea cucumbers). In addition, the amount of frondoside A needed to achieve such results was miniscule—less than a single milligram for an adult weighing 165 pounds.
“Journal of Neuroendocrine Tumours and Pancreatic Diseases and Sciences” states that “extracts from an edible, non-toxic sea cucumber effectively caused cell damage and cell death in human pancreatic cancer cells”. The results of this study are encouraging for the potential use of sea cucumber extract as a dietary supplement which may be used in the treatment or prevention of pancreatic cancer. Sea cucumber extracts potently kill multiple cancer cell lines
“Many of these regenerative mechanisms are the same as those being used by other animals to heal and repair – this includes us humans,” “Sea cucumbers will probably provide us with the key to deciphering how to regenerate our tissues, or at least find out what is needed to do this.”
There have been many promising advances in regenerative tissue growth, but work has been heart-breakingly slow for people suffering from kidney failure or macular degeneration. Much of the
work has been done with salamanders, but the paper’s authors argue that sea cucumbers could be a goldmine of information.
“Sea cucumbers should be viewed as the tissue regeneration equivalent of the squid for our knowledge of nerves and Drosophila for genes and the genome,” said García-Arrarás. “They can help us learn to fix ourselves.”




milk allergy

Milk Allergy

Learn the facts about milk allergy, the three symptom types, lactose intolerance, and a breakthrough treatment that can eliminate your allergy completely!

Milk is made up of water, protein, carbohydrates (a milk sugar called lactose), minerals, fats and other substances. Milk allergy occurs when our bodies react to the proteins in cow’s milk, casein and whey, as if they were a foreign substance. Whereas adults can suffer from an allergy to milk, children are the ones who are most affected by this allergy. Around three percent of infants are allergic to milk but most of these children will outgrow their allergy. In fact, about eighty percent of milk allergic children grow out of their allergy by six years of age.

Food allergy can appear at any time in one’s life. Although babies are the ones who will most likely experience a milk allergy, adults can suddenly acquire this allergy in their 30s or 40s. Fortunately, in both cases the allergy can disappear and the body stops reacting to milk protein as though it were a foreign invader. The bad news is, however, that about ½ the people that experience an allergy to milk will develop allergies to other foods as well. Also, more than ½ of the milk allergy sufferers will experience allergic reactions to inhalant allergens such as pollens, dust mites, and pets.

milk allergy symptoms

Three types of milk related allergy symptoms have been established:

Type 1 – Symptoms begin quickly after ingesting cow’s milk. Reactions mainly affect the skin, causing eczema or hives.

Type 2 – Symptoms begin several hours after ingesting cow’s milk. Symptoms of this type are mainly diarrhea and vomiting.

Type 3 – Symptoms develop more than twenty hours after ingestion. The main symptom for this type is diarrhea.

Symptoms of milk allergy can affect the skin, causing rashes or hives; the digestive tract, causing bloating and diarrhea, and the respiratory system, causing runny nose and asthma. Click here to learn more about allergy symptoms.

A more complete list of symptoms follows:

● vomiting

● hyperactive behavior

● diarrhea

● asthma

● hives

● runny nose

● rashes

● stuffy nose

● ear infections

● bloating

● watery eyes

● eczema

● allergic shiners (black around the eyes

● recurrent bronchitis

● failure to thrive

The above symptoms are not restricted to those people experiencing a milk allergy. When you become familiar with food allergy symptoms, you will notice that numerous foods share a variety of common symptoms, such as: bloating, rash, and runny nose.

hidden dietary sources of milk

Milk protein may be a hidden ingredient in a variety of foods. A partial list of these foods is as follows:

milk, powdered milk, evaporated milk, butter, ghee, half and half, cream, all cheeses, yogurt, many margarines, ice cream, many sorbets and sherbets, non-dairy creamers, some lunch meats, many deserts, puddings, many frostings, creamed or scalloped foods, buttered foods, breads, pancakes, waffles, mashed potatoes, croutons, many baking mixes (often labeled complete), packaged cereals, malts, granolas, breading on fried foods, nutritional protein formulas, and…

…and foods that contain the word “casein”:
casein, caseinate, ammonium caseinate, calcium caseinate, hydrolyzed casein, iron caseinate, magnesium caseinate, potassium caseinate, rennet casein, sodium caseinate, sodium caseinate solids, zinc caseinate

getting enough calcium in your diet

Once you learn you are allergic to milk, you may wonder how to replace that 240 mg of calcium per glass back in your diet. The obvious answer is to take calcium supplements on a daily basis. But there are foods that supply a good amount of calcium that you should be aware of:

● leafy green vegetables

● dried fruit

● seafood

● enriched soy milk, rice milk, or tofu

● baked beans

● almonds

● molasses

lactose intolerance

Lactose is milk sugar. It is found in all kinds of milk – cow’s milk, goat’s milk, sheep’s milk and even breast milk, as well as different types of dairy products that are made from milk. Lactose is composed of two sugars (glucose and galactose) and these sugars need to be broken down to be absorbed and utilized by the body. An enzyme called lactase performs this “breaking-down” process.

Whereas a very small percentage of the population is allergic to milk, it is estimated that 70% of the world’s population has trouble digesting lactose, so lactose accounts for the vast majority of milk-related digestive problems. Lactose intolerance also seems to be correlated with advancing age and certain racial backgrounds. For example, about 90% of blacks will experience a lactose intolerance.

When one is lactose intolerant, meaning you either have too little lactase (mentioned above) or none at all, the lactose you ingest from dairy products is not digested. This lack of digestion causing a variety of unpleasant symptoms, including: gas, bloating, abdominal pain, diarrhea, and nausea. Symptoms are related to the amount of lactose you ingest, so people who have small amounts of lactose can often get away with no symptoms at all.

Unlike milk allergy, lactose intolerance doesn’t mean you need to avoid all dairy products. Some dairy foods containing very little lactose include:

yogurt, sour cream, and aged cheeses like cheddar, Swiss, parmesan and goat’s cheese

There’s another convenient way to enjoy dairy if you are lactose intolerant. The lactase enzyme can be purchased at health food stores. Simply take a lactase pill as directed before eating dairy foods and you can avoid the annoying symptoms associated with intolerance.


The main conventional treatment for food allergies is allergen avoidance. Thus you need to find out the foods causing your reactions, and then avoid them.

Medical treatment can include the following:

Epinephrine – given for severe allergic reactions. When injected, it acts as a bronchodilator

Diphenhydramine (Benadryl) – A common antihistamine

Corticosteroid – Reduces swelling and various symptoms of allergic reactions. A cream/ointment may be given for skin reactions


I’d like to end this section with a personal note that I feel most passionate about. Even though a quick, effective cure of milk allergy is now available, most people do not know a cure exists. For example, in a survey conducted by the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI), 60% of the people surveyed said they were not aware of any treatments for allergies other than medications.

Many have found Energy-based allergy elimination treatments to be a quick, effective, and permanent cure of food and environmental allergies.. I’m not talking about a lengthy, expensive treatment. My milk allergy was cured in one, simple twenty minute session.

I urge you to thoroughly examine our section about “The New 24-hour Allergy Cure.” I feel this cure has saved my life, irrespective of its simplicity and ease of delivery. There are literally thousands of practitioners who are curing food allergy and environmental allergy with energy-based treatments.
