Stomp the Pink – Right the Wrong

Stomp the Pink

HATE  PINK – I hate all the money spent advertising and fundraising at the expense of others; enough money is raised to not only find a cure for breast cancer but find cures for every disease on earth! And they have found NOTHING! People running these organizations are rich and happy, yet loved women – mothers, sisters, daughters, wives and aunts are suffering and dying! The Pink Campaign is nothing more than a way for others to make money using our loved ones like propaganda leaflets – throw them out there, get their – aw sorry money – then let the leaflets blow in the wind while the wind blows into the sails of their fancy boats.

Pink is a symbol of a system designed to make profits from men and women with breast cancer. Men and women every day are dying because corporations are putting their profits before their lives.  How can there be a cure or how can we eliminate cancer in our time if such cure and prevention will bring down multi-BILLION dollar industries? Their Pink represents sadness, lies and eventually the pink fades away as women lose their lives.

There will be no cure on the Western Medicine’s Cancer Industry watch. It hurts to see women depending on advancements to save them; it breaks my heart to feel the pain of such loss when women die with a hope of a cure in their mind. It further hurts to see their loved ones out on the street marching, running, walking and biking for the Pink Cause of Lies and Profits or buying everything with a pink ribbon on it. People do this fundraising and supporting of Pink display products because they do not know 95% will never even get to a research center and of that less than a percent will ever be used for any research at all. Pink Campaign fundraising is a huge profit maker for every company that sells something pink; it brings in billions of dollars for each company and then moves onto the American Cancer Society where more is used up in advertising and salaries, if anything is left, will trickle down to some research center, often the very pharmaceutical company that promotes the Pink Cause: Astra Zeneca.  With all this money flowing into these corporations do you really think any one of them will find a cure and stop cancer? The answer is obviously NO. Corporations are loving the idea of promoting products with Pink Ribbons attached to them; is it free advertising. Big Pharma, the American Cancer Society, Susan Komen and all the feeder charities that raise money and sends it off to one of these big Non-Profits, all support the wrong in Breast Cancer Awareness, they tell the lies, them put fear and humiliation into the hearts of people all for profit and nothing for the women [and men] that are diagnosed with breast cancer. Pink is Wrong! Stomp out PINK!


Big Business survives, it does not create something that will kill itself; a cure for breast cancer, any cancer, will never be found, they will not even try. Any small researcher that finds a cure or a huge advancement in its fight will be discounted, labeled as a quackery. Big Business knocks out competition that threatens their profit margin, we know that and the Pink Campaign is no different. Pink Ribbons are a symbol of propaganda for profit, nothing more; if you support PINK you support big business and you are essentially promoting the continuance of breast cancer.  Forget Pink, ban pink ribbons and make corporations feel our plight. Every product, service or corporation that promotes or displays Pink says they support and donate to Breast Cancer Awareness = America Cancer Society or Susan Komen [same philosophy], ban them and tell them why! Make the truth hurt until they stop Pinking !

We talk of awareness, Pink Awareness month, is nothing more than a month to promote their Pink Ribbon propaganda to bring in huge profits. Prevention talk to the Pinksters is nothing more than words that will send women around to get tests and screenings that often result in women needed further tests or treatment they do not need. Scare tactics in the name of prevention and proactive procedures are used to create more women to enter into the cancer industry, becoming just another pawn for the corporations. Mammograms are pushed onto women as a preventive treatment to save lives but the fact is mammograms are known NOT to be a true indicator for breast cancer diagnosis. Many women with small cysts, given mammograms are told they have a mass that ‘could’ be cancer but to be on the safe side to surgically remove it and follow up with chemo or radiation – just to be sure. The fact is these women would never have had to do ANYTHING – most dissolve by themselves, in other words, the body is smart and it handles such things. Furthermore, many of these women going through needless procedures are exposed to the poisons of the chemo and radiation for no reason but will now have cancer caused by the chemo and radiation, many will die. Women are being basically killed for no reason. And we think that is good preventative measures, and it is all for good? For the good of the cancer industry, good for the Pinksters but NOT good for women; they lose out.

True prevention information will be kept away or touted as ‘ridiculous’ thinking in order to continue the profits because chemical companies supplying their wares to make products manufactured with their chemicals, must keep profits flowing. If women eliminated process foods, processed drinks, chemical laden cleaning supplies, chemical laden personal products, to start; billions of dollars in sales would vanish from corporation accounting; women would not be sick or have cancer, no need to enter the cancer industry merry-go-round of more chemicals and toxins by way of chemotherapy and radiation. Billions and billions of dollars would be lost, millions of lives would not be affected by cancer, corporations would lose and the people would win.


Reality is we cannot stop such a giant as the Cancer Industry or the Chemical Corporation that feed off of and into this profit scheme, nor can we stop the richest Non-Profit: The American Cancer Society and all its feeder charities and do well charities too ignorant or too greedy to stop. People will continue to buy into their marketing propaganda and feel humiliated if they don’t ‘give‘ to the cause, thousands of women will go charging in to get mammograms and do their part for prevention, more and more will needlessly get treatment, more will never get diagnosed because the mammogram will miss their cancerous tumor only discovered once metastasized. Survival will continue on its flat line like it has for decades, whether you die of cancer or the chemo treatment, death has occurred and it falls on the fault of greed over love of humanity. So is all lost? Are we fighting a losing battle?

Looking at the big picture, the American Cancer Society is one of the riches non-profit organizations spending nearly 700,000 million a year on salaries, advertising, meetings, employee perks, and miscellaneous amounts – but notice nothing yet on research or to help cancer patients. Their board, created to solicit money from corporations include Gordon Binder, who is the CEO of Amgen, a biotechnology company that sells chemotherapy products. Another board member, David R. Bethune, is president of Lederle Laboratories, a multinational pharmaceutical company and a division of American Cyanamid Company. Do we see a conflict of interest? Why would you try to prevent cancer and hurt the profits of the corporations you solicit or for their own board member companies, rather they spend millions on ‘so-called’ screening rather than prevention – and we all know how their choice of screening is not only a money maker but also creates cancer. They promote pre-menopausal mammograms yet, over the course of ten years, a woman would have had twenty rads exposures to her breasts, which is close to the kind of radiation women got outside the epicenter in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Author Elaine Feuer of Innocent Casualties says “the ACS is more intent on developing cancer treatments than preventing the disease.” According to Dr Samuel Epstein, of the Cancer Prevention Coalition the American Cancer Society gets much of its money from surgeons, drug companies and corporations, that profit from the cancer industry and will never have any interest in preventing cancer. The ACS tries to block any public awareness about carcinogens in products we use. They make every effort to promote what will not just make money directly but indirectly, Tamoxifen has been shown to be one of the most important and potent causes of liver cancer, yet the ACS promotes its use. Susan Komen foundation promotes tamoxifen and gains some of their funds from the corporation that creates tamoxifen. The Komen Foundation owns stock in General Electric, one of the largest makers of mammogram machines in the world, and owns stock in several pharmaceutical companies, including AstraZeneca (now AzkoNobel). Their CEO makes nearly 500,000 a year and millions of dollars goes to everything but what is truly important, preventing breast cancer; to add insult to injury millions of dollars collected from Susan Komen Foundation are spent suing other smaller charities for using the word “cure”. Nice right?

If we are to win the battle or the war on cancer maybe the answer is not to fight using false weapons. Jesicha’s Hope loves life, our motto is – Believe in Life. We have to learn to keep women alive, we have to learn how to prevent cancer. Prevention is important; Chemicals and Toxins are our biggest enemy. No food should be toxic; no food should have genes from a nonfood element – but GMO’s do. When you ‘clean’ it should be to purify, not to leave chemicals behind or absorb them; washing and cleaning must be toxin free. Testing as a precautionary measure should be equally toxic free – and non-invasive; sonograms and thermograms are safe, effective and more abnormalities are found and identified using these treatments than a mammogram could ever do. We advocate true Breast Cancer Awareness –Pinksters advocate Breast Cancer Bewareness, don’t succumb to their tactics, and embrace real Breast Cancer Awareness. With the Pink Industry, there is little hope for the women. Hope is alive, and it is not found in promoting or believing in Pink.

The cancer merry-go-round is one chemo round after another, rounds of radiation and back to rounds of chemotherapy, around and around until the music of life stops. We can STOP the merry-go-round, there are many options to stop breast cancer and much more to prevent it. We advocate beginning at the basics of eliminating the cause, renew the body through strengthening the immune system, help rid the toxins including chemo and/or radiation toxins, kill off cancer cells through several modalities; resulting in your continued dance of life.

Non-invasive treatments and testing/ screening do not harm the body; no treatment/testing/screening should have side effects. Photo-Dynamic Therapy 4th generation, Hyperthermia, Hyperbaric Oxygen, Rigvir, Curcumin, Artemisinin treatment, Philippine Protocol and others are found, usually in remote areas of the globe; all proven to keep women alive. Many of these rely on old healing wisdom others the art of science using non-toxic elements; cancer does not have to be a death sentence; these treatments prove cancer free outcomes are real. Merry-go-rounds are for carnivals, not cancer and Jesicha’s Hope [along with others that support our mission] make cancer merry-go-rounds a ride no one wants to take.

Jesicha’s Hope does not support Pink Bewareness Month. We do support Truth Awareness for the Prevention of Cancer, and we support everyone’s right to true awareness and the right to treatment without harm. Become part of our quest to stop the needless death of women [and men] with breast cancer, help true awareness and hope; ban and show your disdain for those that promote PINK. We cannot do this alone, join us in our efforts to stomp the pink and right the wrong; the more arrows in our quiver the better we will win.

Oh My Poor Bones

If you have cancer then you may be treated with chemotherapy, radiation or hormonal treatments like Tamoxifen.  All these will damage and deplete the necessary nutrients the keeps your bones healthy and strong.

Many with cancer have their cancers metastasized to the bones. Doctors trying to prevent the cancer from adhering and invading the bones have sought to strengthen the bones. Often bones become weakened using chemotherapy drugs or having radiation used to treat the cancer, even Tamoxifen will weaken the bones.

Trying to stop the deterioration of the bones from the cancer and the drugs used to treat it, doctors prescribe bisphosphonates. These drugs are used to harden the bones. Often these are used for osteoporosis, now used for cancer patients.

So what are bisphosphonates?

Bisphosphonates inhibit osteoclasts digesting bone. Bone constantly turns over cells, a balance of cells is accomplished by osteoblasts that create new bone cells and the osteoclasts that digest bone cells. Normally osteoclasts undergo apoptosis, the normal dying off or cell suicide. When bone loss is greater than bone growth bisphosphonates encourages apoptosis of those out of control osteoclasts.

pill bottle

You are taking bisphosphonates if you are taking one of these drugs: Fosamax, Reclast, Zometa, Boniva, Aredia – there may be others. If you don’t know ask your doctor or pharmacist.

Before the use of bisphosphonates in medicine, they were used to soften water in the irrigation of orange groves. It was discovered they prevented the dissolution of hydroylapatite , that is one of the principle bone minerals, thus inhibiting bone loss. The problem is that after years of use the bones become weaker and fractures occurred. Other side effects noted were, femur fractures, esophageal cancer, osteonecrosis of the jaw [a condition causing painful crumbling of the jaw bone]. Other side effects, inflammation of the stomach, pain in the joints, nausea, and esophageal inflammation, to name a few.

But to build bone loss you don’t have to use bisphosphonates.

Strontium, in the form of strontium citrate, taken orally daily using 680 milligrams has been known to reduce the risk of fracture. The same study noted an 11.4 percent increase in bone density using strontium. The body has about 320 mg to 400 mg of strontium in the bones and connective tissue. It very close to Calcium and in fact uses the same protein carrier to transport it to the bones. When supplementing you should always separate your strontium and calcium supplements with a few hours in between.

For bones to be strong yet flexible you need proteins. Bones are rich in proteins, which as we age or when we are exposed to drugs or chemicals, like radiation or chemotherapy our bones lose proteins, we add calcium but like a piece of chalk, our bones can break because they are brittle.  There is absolutely no scientific evidence that taking calcium carbonate (Tums, and other OTC antacids as well as oyster shell, dolomite, coral calcium or calcium hydroxyapatite or combinations containing them, have any bearing on the incidence of osteoporosis. For good protein absorption in the bones, fats are needed. Perhaps that good glass of raw milk wasn’t such a bad idea after all, lots of calcium, fats and protein. The best source of proteins can be found in protein rich herbs.  One of the best sources is barley green [see below for excellent source]  A good fat can be found in organic dairy, avocado, krill oil, etc, will assist you in absorbing the proteins.broken bone

Building and maintaining our bones is not just about calcium or Vitamin D, we need things like Silcon or Silica to maintain the structure of the bones. We can get Silica in whole grains, green beans, even beer but all this does not give most people enough for our bone health. Silcon is needed for proper calcium as its job is to attract the calcium to our bones. Without a proper balance of silica our bones run the risk of fracture.  It is part of foundation; if our foundation is weak how can we hold up. One of the best sources of silica in its organic form is Bamboo Extract, research suggests 40 mg of Silica is needed each day.

Too much parathyroid hormone raises the blood level of calcium by releasing calcium from the bones and teeth, this over activity of the parathyroid hormones indicates a boron deficiency.  It is essential not to our bone health and teeth but an essential element to balance hormones, brain health, heart health, vision and other important body functions.

“The German cancer researcher Dr Paul-Gerhard Seeger has shown that cancer commonly starts with the deterioration of cell membranes. As boron is essential for cell membranes and boron deficiency widespread, this may be an important cause for the initiation of tumour growth.”

You need as experts claim an average of 3 mg of Boron daily and using a therapeutic dose of 6mg to 9 mg over the day.  It will help therapeutically to help with Lupus, arthritis. Fractured bones heal in half the time,  it helps pain, swelling and stiffness in the bones and joint.

Magnesium has a key function in numerous biochemical reactions that are necessary for bone strength and metabolism. This mineral regulates active calcium transport and might play a role in stopping bone fractures.  Most people that have bone problems are depleted in magnesium. About 60 percent of dietary magnesium is stored in the bones, while muscle and other tissues use the rest.

Vitamin D3 the sun vitamin – without it our bodies fail us, yet is simple to get an sufficient amount. Without a sun block, 10 minutes of sun exposure on your skin three times a week is allows the body to produce enough Vitamin D.  There are some that say 20 minutes of sunlight gives the body the needed Vitamin D.Most people in spite of the ease to which we can get Vitamin D are still deficient. Calcium absorption relies on Vitamin D,  Vitamin K is needed for Vitamin D to properly regulate. The best supplementation if you need to supplement is to get a combination of Vitamin D3 and K2. Some Organic sources of K2 is eggs, organic soy, meats, and organic dairy. There was a study done on rats where they had broken bones, those rats given a hefty dose of D3 had healed bones; the other rats healed poorly with uneven bone knitting. Most are told Vitamin D is a vitamin but research shows us it is hormone that is needed for repairing our body, without the proper level to initiate full repair we our bodies only do a temporary fix: the amount that the doctors claim is sufficient for a temporary fix, or survival, near 50 times that amount is needed to initiate a full repair response.

Have you ever seen those majestic trees used for ship’s masts?  Well those trees hold a key secret in how our bones hold together; while all these things we have discussed there is one element that we need to ‘glue’ them all together, keeping the molecular matrix all straight and perfect. Organic Sulfur binds and holds the structure of our bones together; binding them makes the minerals hold and work together to create and maintain strong healthy bones.

So what does it take to build strong bones?

  • Magnesium – chelated is best and experts agree about 600 mg to start
  • Vitamin D3 with K2 – organic sources best or balance supplementation These have to also be used for proper calcium function and absorption.
  • Boron – 3 mg generally – or 6-9 mg therapeutically
  • Silica – best source- bamboo extract 10 -20 mg generally – 2-3 times more for therapeutic
  • Organic Calcium – barley grass – excellent source –must be organic, just taking calcium doesn’t guarantee proper absorption, when you get it from an organic source it will have other necessary elements with it for proper absorption. Raw milk is another good source that has D and K included.
  • Organic Protein – barley grass  – has high amount of organic protein
  • Strontium – experts suggest about 680 mg on an empty stomach before bed
  • Organic Sulfur – binds the matrix of bone minerals for full bone repair
  • TENS therapy – this has been shown to help the rebuilding of bones to increase in as much as 2 times the normal rate.
