The research on Modified Citrus Pectin (MCP) continues to grow, highlighting its powerful benefits against inflammation and the protein galectin-3 -- a culprit in heart disease, cancer, inflammation and fibrosis. In this powerful new study, published in Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis, and Vascular Biology: Journal of the American Heart Association, MCP blocked galectin-3 and reduced the inflammation, blood pressure, fibrosis and aortic wall thickness associated with vascular hardening and cardiovascular disease. Furthermore, MCP out-performed the pharmaceutical drug sprironolactone, safely without toxicity. Click here to read more about the study.

American Chemical Society Highlights Modified Citrus Pectin as Solution to Chronic Disease Marker Galectin-3
Cancer, heart disease, chronic inflammation—these disease conditions plague humanity, causing early death and untold suffering. Slowly, scientists are uncovering their numerous causes including genetic anomalies, environmental toxins, obesity and other factors. However, a rapidly expanding body of research points to a single biological culprit that profoundly affects these and other conditions—the molecule Galectin-3.
"We need to outsmart the cancer before it outsmarts us. To do this, we have to find ways to attack cancer from many angles, so it doesn't have the opportunity to develop protective mutations," says integrative medicine pioneer, Isaac Eliaz, M.D.
Doxorubicin (Dox) is an effective anti-cancer drug, but it's also a very toxic one, causing severe heart and immune damage. The doses needed to impact tumors are not well tolerated by patients; however, researchers may have found an answer through combination therapy. A study published in the journal Cell Biology International has shown that combining Dox with the natural supplement Modified Citrus Pectin (MCP) increases the anti-cancer activity of Dox. This finding bodes well for prostate cancer patients, especially those too weak for normal chemotherapy regimens. Combination therapy may allow for lower doses of Dox with enhanced clinical impact and reduced toxicity.
In a groundbreaking study, Modified Citrus Pectin (MCP), a highly researched natural compound enhanced the anti-cancer effects of two poly-botanical formulas. When co-administered with formulas that attack breast and prostate cancer, MCP significantly increased their anti-cancer action, further reducing metastasis in highly invasive breast and prostate cancer cells. The study was led by researchers at the Cancer Research Laboratory at Indiana University Health and Indiana University School of Medicine, and published in the peer review journal Integrative Cancer Therapies.

As a holistic physician and meditation practitioner with more than 25 years of experience, I have always believed strongly in the mental and emotional benefits of regular mindful meditation practice. The practice of regular meditation has been found to increase brain density, boost the connections between neurons, decrease the symptoms of depression and anxiety, provide clarity of thought, and increase positive mood endorphins. Other published studies have shown that meditation can improve physical functioning, decrease chronic disease risks, and enhance overall quality of life.
Although many experience benefits of a spiritual nature, meditation, in itself, is not a spiritual practice. It is merely a simple technique that involves breathing and quieting the mind.
