It’s been talked about in whispers in the halls of Washington, D.C. and in some of the more elite research labs in the country: a cure for cancer by the next generation. Dr. Isaac Eliaz, the researcher who developed a cancer-fighting extract from the rinds of citrus peels, believes that nature may hold the key to fighting for a cancer cure in the future.

“As much as a fantasy as that might seem, let’s remember how far we’ve come in fighting cancer over the last few decades,” he said. “As recent as the 1970s, cancer was known as ‘The Big C,’ a certain death sentence for anyone who was diagnosed. In the last few decades, we’ve used a combination of research, new drugs, new surgical methods and early detection to make cancer less of a death sentence than a chronic condition that people could live with for years. In many cases, patients have gone into remission for years or even been cured outright. And now, Columbia University is reporting that natural extracts from citrus peels are remarkably effective in slowing cancer growth rates and even stopping cancer cold. Today, cancer is no longer a death sentence, so why can’t we start talking about a cure?”

In the summer of 1961, President John F. Kennedy made a declaration that stunned the nation. He stated that by the end of the decade, America would put a man on the moon. It was a fantasy, but it ignited NASA, whose engineers adapted a forward thinking problem solving philosophy, and by July 1969, the dream was made reality.

The impossible can be done,” Dr. Eliaz said. “We just need a philosophy and a direction, so I am offering one of my own. As a researcher myself, my feeling is that nature created cancer, and so the answer to cancer’s defeat also lies within the power of nature. My desire is to direct as much effort into researching natural solutions to cancer, and one recent study demonstrates the power of that approach.”

According the Dr. Eliaz, the newest natural compound that has been proven to help fight off cancer is derived from common citrus fruits known for their detoxifying and antioxidant properties. It’s a specific type of Modified Citrus Pectin (MCP), the soluble fiber found in the pith of citrus fruits, such as lemons, limes, and oranges.

“This dietary supplement is one of the top recommendations in my clinical practice, often used in conjunction with other cancer treatment methods and an integrative approach that combines lifestyle changes, natural extracts and traditional cancer treatment methods,” he added. “It’s now becoming known throughout the mainstream medical community thanks to newly published scientific research. Researchers from Columbia University recently reported in Integrative Cancer Therapies on MCP’s powerful effect on both hormone dependent and independent prostate cancer. As an integrative medical doctor with a focus on cancer, I consider their findings tremendously timely and encouraging.”

He also said that MCP has been extensively researched and proven efficacious in the fight against many forms of cancer. More research continues on the powerful anti-cancer effects in early and late stage cancers. As peer reviewed evidence continues to mount on the efficacy of this unique ingredient, patients can be given greater confidence in the role of integrative care in their battle against this potentially deadly disease.

“In the last 25 years, I’ve worked with thousands of cancer patients, successfully creating individualized treatment protocols to address the unique circumstances of each patient,” he said. “While MCP provides a profound contribution to a treatment program, there is still no single magic bullet for fighting cancer; instead, a comprehensive strategy integrating a range of methods must be developed. Utilizing multiple modalities on an individual basis offers a significantly better outcome. This is the essence of integrative cancer therapy. Let the gauntlet be thrown to the research community and to patients who seek more than the traditional therapies. The answer lies in nature, and it is waiting for us to find it.”
