Fulda conference 2013 #1: Integrative cancer conference

Updated March 2016 – For more information on GcMAF, please join the GcMAF and GcMAF Cancer forums on Facebook – they are closed groups, so you have to wait for your membership to be confirmed.  They contain up-to-date information on sources of GcMAF, and also feedback and contributions  by people who are using GcMAF.

Here are the highlights of the integrative cancer conference I attended on 30 November and 1 December, 2013, in Fulda, Germany.  I will be writing individual posts on each topic.

First a huge-thank you to Dr Heinz Reinwald for letting me and Peter Trayhurn attend this conference, and also for giving us his time and consideration, and a discount on the conference fees.

(I’m not sure what the practitioners made of having two patients in their midst, but we were very discrete and were there on a fact-finding mission to find out what was the latest in integrative approaches to cancer, and to suss out which were the doctors who were doing leading-edge research.)

I was impressed by the organisation of the conference.  The conference hotel was luxurious, the room was comfortable, and there were German-English translators as the majority of the talks was in German.  The food at mealtimes was fantastic, four-star buffets with plenty of ketogenic diet options.  Everyone was friendly, which was very important for me.  The quality of the speakers was excellent, world-class, and if I had the money I would go again next year.  It was a bit of a steep learning curve for me at times – if you are a patient and interested in next year’s conference, I suggest that you bone up on the causes of cancer.  If you have a degree in biochemistry that would be helpful as some of the lectures are fairly technical!

Now that I’ve been going through my notes, my overall impression is that the conference was a good mix of providing new information on approaches to cancer treatments, as well as showcasing the products of the sponsor, Dr Reinwald, in particular, Master Amino Acid Pattern (MAP) without being too much of a hard-sell.

Getting information that is not available on websites is not easy where cancer treatments are concerned – so much depends on where you are looking, and a lot of research is still not readily available.  So to be in the midst of practitioners who are sharing their knowledge, backed up by hard-core research and trials, was immensely valuable – thank you, Dr Reinwald!  And to be able to get together world-class practitioners speaks volumes for Dr Reinwald’s reputation and organisation and products.

The full programme (in pdf format) is here.

The conference was sponsored by Dr Reinwald, a German company that specialises in cutting-edge supplements, including a master amino acid supplement (MAP).

1.  Top German clinics and practitioners

I was introduced to a number of German clinics and top German doctors who had new protocols for the detection and treatment of cancer and other degenerative diseases.  This was an eye-opener as I’m always on the look-out for better ways to heal cancer, and the only way to beat this disease is to meet the experts who are achieving results.

2.  Supplement – Master Amino Acid Pattern (MAP)

A supplement, Dr Reinwald’s Master Amino Acid Patter (MAP):  product information here:  MAP-Product Info-Basic-E-Web (1) Copy, shows promising results for patients with weight loss issues e.g. cancer patients and cachexia, and athletes with intensive training programmes, or people who are in restrictive diets, e.g. the ketogenic diet.

The problems with cachexia is the loss in protein which means that the body is unable to create amino acids to rebuild the body.  In order to put back the protein, the cancer patient has to eat and eat and eat.  Which may not be possible if the appetite isn’t there, or the patient is weak, or if the digestive system is unable to absorb nutrients properly.  MAP replaces the amino acids that the body requires, and does that with almost zero nitrogen residue.  That means fewer toxic by-products.

For people on restrictive diets, e.g. the hyper-ketogenic diet, the amount of protein allowed is very low (approx. 8% of the diet) which is especially a problem for children in growth or possible immune deficiency, so with MAP you can go for high protein and not produce ammonia or sugar (we don’t need sugar in ketogenic diets … and normal nutritional protein has a big load of nitrogen waste and sugar).

For athletes on intensive training programmes, MAP gives quicker recovery times, with less lactic-acid buildup.  This is significant for maintaining or building muscle.

For more information on the importance of protein and how to optimise the level of protein in our diets, check out this article:  Proteins The Disregarded Key to Better Health.

Folks, this is the real deal, it is being used by top clinics in Germany and there have been studies showing it works.  It could help patients build up or retain body weight.  Please look into this product.  Purchase it from Dr Reinwald:

GcMAF1

3.  Supplement – GcMAF

I was privileged to listen to and meet the great Prof Ruggiero, the person who has led the bulk of research into GcMAF and Maf314 yoghurt.  Prof Ruggiero is a radiologist, so presented very convincing ultrasound proof of GcMAF’s efficacy on tumours.

I also learned:

– why the old GcMAF may not have been as potent as the current batch.  A doctor in the audience commented that he had used GcMAF two years ago on his patients and it hadn’t worked [this was my experience too], and it turns out that the old GcMAF was not as strong, or the dosages not sufficiently high.

– if using the injectable, the best results are achieved if the GcMAF is injected close to the tumour, or into the tumour, or if treating bone metastasis, into the nearest lymph nodes.  This is something I wish I’d known two years ago when I’d used GcMAF [cue gnashing of teeth]!  The recommendation is to use ultrasound to guide the injection.

– even better results are achieved if GcMAF is administered intravenously.

GcMAF10

– how Maf314 is absorbed – I always thought it was absorbed in the gut, but that’s not the case – Maf314 is absorbed by special immune cell patches (the Waldeyer’s-Pirogov tonsillar ring) at the back of the throat.

– GcMAF in nerve generation – very interesting case studies for autism and Alzheimer’s.

– Vitamin D levels.  I thought that you shouldn’t go too high for Vitamin D, but the recommendations by the practitioners were the higher the better, and 10,000 IU of Vitamin D daily if you are doing GcMAF.

4.  GcMAF and CFS and ME and the inflammatory process.

Also, the role of viruses in CFS and ME.  A rivetting talk by Prof. Dr. med. Kenny de Meirleir (Belgium)

5.  The role of the gut in degenerative diseases, and the solution using GcMAF and MAP.

This talk was given by Florian Schilling.  His talk underlined the importance of preserving the integrity of the gut, and also showed that most patients with cancer suffer from some form of leaky gut syndrome.  This is a topic that is defnitely neglected.  Orthodox medical science focuses on the symptoms, not the causes of disease.  But if you don’t resolve the cause, it’s like trying to dampen a fire by putting a wet cloth over it – sooner or later the fire will burn through!

6.  Heavy metals and redox potential in tumours

This talk was given by Univ. Doz. Dr. John G. Ionescu (Spezialklinik Neukirchen, Germany)

7.  B17 and its treatment in cancer.

I found this particularly interesting because I’d always thought that B17 was not an effective treatment, and toxic on the liver.  The German doctor, Dr. med. Martin Stöppler (Germany), who presented, proved hat it was a viable treatment.  He also talked about opposition and persecution by the state of his methods.

8.  The hyper-ketogenic diet and cancer

This is more intense than the restrictive ketogenic diet.  The only way to make up for low volumes of protein in this diet is to use MAP and I wouldn’t recommend trying it without the monitoring and guidance of a ketogenic diet doctor.

*****

I cannot begin to tell you how frustrated I am that I don’t have enough hours in the day to blog on everything I learned at that conference.  I made copious pages of notes which I will try to distill into posts in the following weeks.

There were only two patients attending – Peter Trayhurn and myself (possibly because it was really only for practitioners, and the conference fee of Euro290 may have been a barrier).

What was funny was that we were the only ones who had direct personal use of the therapies.  Whenever the speakers asked for a show of hands of who was using the therapies (e.g. GcMAF), it was only Peter and me who raised our hands!

I’m not sure what the practitioners made of having two patients in their midst, but we were very discrete and were there on a fact-finding mission to make contact with the doctors who were doing leading-edge research, and to network.  My deep regret is that I did not have the time or funds to follow-up with consultations with these experts [Peter, did, the lucky sod!]

So … a huge thank-you to Dr Heinz Reinwald who allowed both Peter and me to attend this conference, and also for giving us a discount on the conference fee.

**********

I was persuaded to go to this conference by Peter Trayhurn, whom I met at Hallwang earlier this year.  Peter is remarkable not only for the results that he has achieved but also his steely focus on getting the best treatments, and implementing the best strategies. There are very few metastatic colo-rectal patients who were given less than six months to live, and are alive more than a year down the road, and living a full and relatively healthy life.

He is one of those rare big-hearted individuals:  he generously paid in advance the conference fees, then did all the driving, paid for the car rental and the petrol and the hotel, and helped me network by introducing me to the practitioners at the conference (I’m the shy type!).  Because I’ve got a wonky left arm, he did all the heavy carrying and made sure I didn’t over-exert myself – I was very touched by his consideration.

He is a one-of-a-kind friend to have, and the sort of person who should be cloned because everyone should have a Peter as a friend.  I’ve seen him in action with his other friends too, and how he takes care of them.  He deserves to be blessed by miracles and healing, and to live long and see his children grow up and be surrounded by loads of grandchildren – thank-you, Peter!

It was a privilege and honour to be invited to share the conference with him, a bit like studying at the feet of a master and getting an intensive education in how to survive and beat cancer.
