“Cancer is the biggest failure of twentieth century medicine… and the conventional treatments that are available will continue to be. But the new molecular biology, the human genome project, has revolutionised everything. The key to it are targets – molecules that are present in cancer cells and virtually absent or completely absent in normal cells.
Once you have such a target or tumour marker you can devise treatments.” Dan Burke PH.D.
Because I’m absolutely convinced vital clinical research has at last been done and the results with regard to Salvestrols really are staggering.
Why do I feel so strongly about this?
In 2012 I attended a lecture presented to AIMA (Australasian Integrative Medicine Association), and in mid-February 2013 I took part in a 4 hour information/training event run for Health Practitioners.
I’ve read and listened to the scientific information behind the studies and looked at the write-ups of many successful case studies.
People I respect highly, and with far more experience than I in this field, both in the medical profession and complementary therapies, are approaching these discoveries with an open and enthusiastic perspective.
In all the years I’ve been practising, this is the first time I’ve felt there’s enough strong, scientific, evidence to make me put my hand up and want to learn more, and share my knowledge about the benefits of Salvestrols, with others.
Cancer appears to be brought on by a number of factors, 30% directly attributable to diet, and then we must address what happens once cancerous cells have been shown to be present in the body.
Why is Cancer so prevalent nowadays?
Four very important aspects need to be looked at:
1. Lack of Salvestrols in the modern diet
Diets are now frequently high in processed, fast-food, and short in fresh, organic, fruit and vegetables. In most cases, gone are the days of children grizzling because they have to go out to the vegetable garden and pull freshly grown carrots for dinner.
It is estimated that today we consume only 10 – 20% of the Salvestrols that would have occurred in our diet 100 years ago.
2. Modern Farming practices
Agrichemicals destroy the mould and fungi on foods and so there is no need for Salvestrols to ‘power up’ and kill off the mould and fungi. We are, therefore missing out on the phytonutrients that will keep us healthy.
3. Ripening phase of the produce
Salvestrols are produced in the plant during the ripening phase. Produce is now frequently picked well before this phase and so the Salvestrols are not developing. Purchasing locally produced, organic produce (if not able to grow your own) is the best way to ensure the foods are ripening as they should.
4. The introduction of newer, sweeter, plant varieties
The older ones of us can remember when some varieties of apples were so sour they made our cheeks suck in and lips pucker!
Those apples were much higher in Salvestrols than the modern varieties. Selective cultivation has been making our fruit and vegetables sweeter and sweeter each year and yes, I have been ‘guilty’ of going into raptures over the sweetness of strawberries!!

What are Salvestrols and why are they so important?
Salvestrols are naturally occurring phytonutrients. They are food–based compounds and are part of a plant’s immune system.
They provide their anti-cancer properties because they appear to ‘deal to’ the enzyme CYP1B1, which is found only in cancer cells.
The great thing is Salvestrols are totally inert until they come across CYP1B1 in a cell and then, as a friend said, “they lovingly give the cancerous cell a chance to implode”. (Oh good grief!!)
Is CYP1B1 a problem or a solution?
All cells should ‘behave’ and follow the circle of life – birth, growth and then death. It appears that the CYP1B1 enzyme is a universal marker for cancer cells.
The Salvestrols bind with the CYP1B1 and therefore only the cancer cells are affected by the supplement.
Healthy cells are free of CYP1B1 and so are not affected as the Salvestrol targets only the diseased cells.
How are Salvestrols taken?
Ideally we should be able to extract the Salvestrols from the food we eat but there just aren’t enough in the average food we can buy now.
My suggestion is to either grow your own fruits and vegetables, buy organic food at markets where you know they are fresh and free from sprays, and then… cook them in any way other than boiling!
Boiling removes the Salvestrols and so, unless you use the water they were boiled in it’s better to steam, roast or stir-fry your vegetables to retain the most Salvestrols as possible.
Also, particularly if you’re in New Zealand, contact Benji Woodman at Forgotten Fruits Nursery for more information in growing Heritage Trees that are high in Salvestrols.
Supplementation – the most effective way
It’s easy to determine, with muscle testing, how many capsules of Salvestrol are to be taken for best results but rule of thumb seems to be, for general health, (no cancerous cells detected) one capsule 2 – 3 times per week is recommended.
If conventional cancer treatments are being followed then a much larger supplementation is recommended in order to provide support for the body, and this is determined on an individual basis.
