Proposes Health Claim for Psyllium.
Washington, D.C.- According to the May 22
Federal Register, the FDA proposed a rule that would
amend the regulation permitting food labeling bearing a
health claim on soluble fiber from whole oats and a lower
risk of coronary heart disease to include soluble fiber
from psyllium husks. The qualifying level of psyllium
fiber is proposed to be 10.2g per total daily intake.
This proposal is a result of Kellogg Co. Filling a
petition in June 1996 requesting that foods that contain
a certain amount of psyllium become eligible for the
reduced coronary heart disease risk claim. The cereal
manufacturer's petition contained data from 57 clinical
studies on psyllium's effects on lowering cholesterol and
the risk of coronary heart disease dated from 1965-1996.
Psyllium, a harvestable grain mostly
grown in France, Spain and India, according to Health
Daily News, is cultivated in small amounts in
southwestern United States. The FDA is not certain that
it will consider psyllium husk in grain based food
applications as generally recognized as safe (GRAS),
which Kellogg requested. According to the FDA, " a
preliminary review of the GRAS affirmation petition
reveals that it contains significant evidence supporting
the safety of the use of this substance at the levels
necessary to justify a health claim". The FDA refers
to a report from the Federation of American Societies for
Experimental Biology's Life Sciences Research Office
determining that psyllium is at safe levels of up to 25 g
However, the FDA expressed concern
about psyllium's long tern risk, in which high levels of
psyllium husk "may enhance epithelial cell
proliferation in the gastrointestinal tract," or
cause allergies in some people. Two other companies,
Proctor and Gamble and Ciba-Geigy have tried to receive
FDA approval for a Cholesterol-lowering claim on their
psyllium-based laxatives, Metamucil and Perdiem,
respectively, but have not received it.

Novogen to trial
A POTENT anti-cancer
agent had been discovered in an
extract from RED CLOVER and had the potential to destroy
breast and bowel cancer cells and leukemia,
pharmaceutical developer Novogen said yesterday.
The active anti-cancer ingredient, a
derivative of the genistein, one of four isoflavones, was
also produced in the human liver, but Novogen would
produce an anti-cancer drug from its patented strain of
red clover, which is the richest source of isoflavones.
Executive Chairman Graham Kelly said
patents had already been submitted in the United States
to protect Novogen's compound discovery and its
Trials on the new compound would start
in the first quarter next year. Dr. Kelly said genistein
was known as a moderate anti-cancer agent, but the active
ingredient discovered in genstein was much more powerful.
"We've just discovered what we
think is the active principle. We've found one of them
has an anti-cancer agent which is about 10 times
more potent than genistein" he said.
In a separate development, Novogen's
managing director Christopher Naughton told the
Securities Institute of Australia yesterday the company
was considering listing on the New York Stock Exchange's
NASDAQ index to take advantage of U.S. investors.
"We are an Australian company and
we intend to remain so," he told an institute
meeting. "But if we were to list in the U.S. and of
course the imperative to do so is not immediate, it would
be to recognize the value of the stage we are at for all
There were three ways to destroy
cancer, said Dr. Kelly, with the traditional method
involving the use of poisons, such as chemotherapy, but
this also destroyed normal cells.
However, isoflavones caused the
self-destruction of cancer cells. Known as apoptosis,
this only selected cancer cells. Isoflavones caused cells
to differentiate, converting the cancer cells into mature
cells that eventually underwent apoptosis.
"What these isoflavones have been
shown to do is to cause apoptosis and differentiation and
that's been well published in the scientific
journals" Dr. Kelly said.
"The principal of what we're doing
is well established, It's unarguable. What we've done is
to find the active ingredient in the whole

Restoration and/or Augmentation of Local Graft Versus
Host Reaction by Traditional Chinese Medicinal Herbs.

Wong, BS. Ti Li Loo, PHD. Gloria M. Mavligit, MD.
The in vitro retroactive effect of
aqueous extracts from two traditional Chinese medicinal
herbs were studied in 19 cancer patients and in 15 normal
healthy donors. Using the local graft versus host (GVH)
reaction as a test assay for T-cell function, the extract
(10 ug/ml) induced a
restored reaction in nine of ten patients with an
increase in local GVH reaction from 18.2 +/- 15.8 mm to
112.9 +/- =94.2mm (p<0.01). The extract, likewise effected an immune
restoration in nine of 13 cancer patients with an
increase in local GVH reaction from 32.3 +/- 36.1 mm to
118 +/- 104.9 (p<0.01). This degree of immune
restoration appears to be complete as it equals the local
GVH reaction observed among untreated mononuclear cells
from normal healthy donors (82.8 +/- 41.lmm, P<0.001).
These results suggest that both extracts of the
traditional Chinese medicinal herbs contain potent immune
stimulants which may provide the rational basis for their
therapeutic use as biological response modifiers. Cancer
The Cellular immune Response is usually
impaired in cancer patients, and especially in those with
advanced disease. This is further compromised by
radiation and/or Chemotherapy. It is therefore theorized
that any enhancement of the cellular immune response
among such patients could potentially be beneficial if it
could only eliminate the detrimental effect induced by
chemotherapy or irradiation. Numerous attempts are still
being made in the search for effective biological
response modifiers intended to favorably modulate or
preserve the subnormal immune apparatus of cancer
patients. Extensive screening of natural and crobial
products such as interferon, retinoids, microbial
products and plant extracts are currently receiving a
great deal of attention.
Traditional Chinese medicinal and
pharmacology date back several years and represent
empirical experiences in the treatment and prevention of
various diseases, including cancer. A number of Chinese
herbs collectively known as Fu-zheng therapy, are being
used to promote or enhance the natural host defense
mechanism in various infectious diseases. Clinical trials
with such biological products are currently being
conducted in China. This communication describes a
remarkable augmentative effect in vitro by two Chinese
medicinal herbs on T-cell function as assessed by the

proves that Native American people have been right for
over six hundred years.
Nine months after the last atomic
blast, which turned the test area into a barren desert,
Scientists make a remarkable find. One small plant grows
healthily where all else is dead. Intrigued by this, the
scientists took the plant and the seeds to their
laboratory for the utmost scrutiny.
What did they find?
The plant and seeds were loaded with a substance called
NDGA. This ingredient not only protected the plant from
Nuclear Radiation, but tests showed that it is a key to
longer life for all living beings.
Chaparral contains NDGA.
In Sir Jason Winters Book, "Killing Cancer"
first published in 1980, He found that the Native
American people of the southwest used Chaparral every day
for good health. Sir Jason used NDGA. in his valiant
fight and recovery from terminal cancer.
Years ago, famous author John Heinerman published the
following passage in his now famous book "Treatment
of Cancer with Herbs".
"Studies by Micro Biologist Emiliano Mora at Auburn
University have demonstrated that an extract of Chaparral
kills Malignant Cancer cells in test tubes. In
experiments dating back to the 1960's NDGA. has
significant growth inhibiting activity against some
animal tumors, though not against others."
Jason Winters International is proud to present this up to date
information which proves once again that ancient people,
living close to God and to nature, had special knowledge
that is only now being proven correct.
This barren desert is ground zero at the former Nevada
atomic test site. Nine months after the last atomic
blast, a small plant, native to the area, sprouted and
flourished. Within this plant is a substance called NDGA,
which protected its seeds from the nuclear radiation.
Laboratory tests of NDGA showed it to be a key to a
longer life for humans, plants and animals.
Dr. Lippmarr and his researchers visited this former
atomic testing site to examine plants and animals that
survived near ground zero even though they should have
been killed by radiation poisoning. The seed from a
native plant survived and sprouted. The plant was a
common food source for many desert animals. NDGA, found
in the plant, protected the seed and the animals that
nibbled on the plant. Clinical studies show that NDGA
extends the life spans of animals and indicates the same may be true for
(as taken from a study by Dr. Lippman).
The Jason Winters Tea blend with chaparral contains a very small percent of the chaparral herb. However, we recommend that anyone with any kind of liver dysfunction or disease should not use chaparral. We have the Classic Blend Tea with Indian Sage that has equal benefits.
On his journey to find a natural remedy, Sir Jason discovered that Indian Sage and chaparral have very similar blood purifying and immune boosting capabilities. Indian sage is every bit as effective as the tea with chaparral and is actually a part of the chaparral family. Many of our customers state that it even has a better flavor, as chaparral can be bitter. Jason Winter's Indian Sage tea has been around since the 80's and many people have reported using it with positive results.
Therapeutic benefits as described in Great Life Magazine, March 2002: Treats anxiety, blood clots, canker soars, cystitis, depression, diarrhea, fever, hot flashes, memory problems, menopause, menses problems, night sweats, excessive perspiration and toothaches, helps to stop lactation, improves digestion of fats.
Laboratory studies have shown
that antioxidants in green tea help prevent the cell
damage that can lead to cancer. Now it appears the leaves
may hold even greater fortune. Scientists at Case Western
School of Medicine found that these compounds also
kill cells once they've become cancerous, while leaving
the healthy cells unharmed. The researchers say green tea
may soon be used in cancer treatment as well as

Natural Herbs versus Drugs
By Edward M. Lieskovan Pharm. D.
Adjunct Professor of Clinical Pharmacy
It is rare for a week to pass without someone asking me
about the differences between natural herbs and
pharmaceutical drugs. Which is better, herbs or drugs?
The answer often depends upon who you ask and upon the
circumstances surrounding the inquiry. Most Western
educated medical doctors are quite sophisticated with
regard to the use of pharmaceutical drugs but have little
or no experience with herbs. These physicians were never
educated about the benefits of herbs and some or them may
even have strong negative opinions about their value. On
the other end of the spectrum we have advocates of
alternative medicine who place a high value on natural
herbal therapies. Many alternative medicine advocates
also recognize the value of pharmaceutical drugs, while
others may distrust or even fear modern drugs. Ask
around, almost everyone has an opinion on the subject.
The question is, who is right?
The answer is that both groups are right and wrong
depending upon the circumstances presented. In other
words sometimes modern pharmaceutical drugs are better
and sometimes herbs are better. Realize that this is a
most unsatisfactory answer so please give me a chance to
As most of us know, herbs are derived from all natural
plant materials (roots, leaves, stems, berries, etc.)
that are generally thought to posses natural health
promoting qualities. Though many people would tend to
describe herbs as simple and natural materials they are
anything but simple. Most herbs tend to be rather complex
and actually contain dozens and sometimes even hundreds
of unique natural bioactive substances. These unique
substances vary greatly from each other in concentration,
potency and physiologic activity. The overall
physiological effects that we attribute to an single herb
is actually the sum of the individual effects of each of
the unique substances present in that herb. In addition
to their complexity, herbs have one other unique quality
known as balance or tonicity. Many herbs are described as
balanced or tonic because they posses a variety of
different physiological effects that tend to buffer
(modulate) the overall effects of the herb resulting in a
relatively gentle natural physiologic action.
Because of their gentle and natural action and general
lack of side effects, herbs are a natural choice as long
term dietary supplements to help strengthen the body and
In comparison to herbs, most pharmaceutical drugs are
quite simple and contain only a limited number of active
and highly purified substances (usually only one).
Consequently most drugs lack the complex buffered action
seen in herbs and rather tend to be more focused and
unidirectional in regard to their physiological activity.
For the most part drugs also posses greater potency than
herbs. While high potency drugs have many therapeutic
advantages over herbs they do have the disadvantage of
causing more side effects. The vast majority of drug side
effects are bothersome but can be managed by a trained
physician and a compliant patient. Some side effects can
be more serious and even life threatening however, and
doctors and their patients must always weigh the benefits
of a drug against its potential to cause serious side
While many people believe that most modern drugs all
consist of dangerous man made chemicals produced in
laboratories, the truth is that most of our present
pharmaceutical drugs had their origins in natural
substances. Many modern drugs are actually derived from
individual natural substances (many of which are
contained in herbs) that have been isolated, purified and
highly concentrated in order to promote a single valuable
therapeutic effect to the exclusion of the buffering
effects of the other compounds normally found in that
herb. Aspirin, one of the single most valuable drugs ever
created is a perfect example of this process. Many years
ago scientist began to study the bark of White Willow
tree because it seemed to have the ability to relieve
pain when it was chewed and ingested. More sophisticated
equipment and techniques eventually allowed scientists to
identify Salicylic Acid as the single substance that gave
White Willow bark this unique property. Further research
eventually resulted in the synthesis of the semisynthetic
(meaning a chemically altered natural compound) drug
Acetylsalicylic Acid (ASA) or aspirin as its
commonly called. By adding an acetyl group to the natural
salicylic acid molecule, scientists created a wonder drug
that is both more potent and better tolerated than the
original salicylic acid contained in White Willow bark.
All of this is very interesting but what does it have to
do with the question that we are trying to answer. I am
glad that you asked and will proceed to provide that
answer. In general, herbs tend to be balanced, mild
acting and natural in their effects while drugs tend to
posses more potent unidirectional effects. Each class of
substances has it value depending upon what you are
trying to accomplish.
For example, if you are having a heart attack and are
near death the mild and gentle action of most herbs would
be of little benefit. What you need is a lightning fast,
high potency drug that has only one effect, that of
getting your heart beating again, pronto. The fact that
the drug is highly potent, very powerful and super fast
acting is your only hope for survival. Side effects are
of little concern without the drug you will be dead in 2
minutes. The highly trained cardiologist who is treating
you has to administer the drug over a thousand times and
fully understands the positive and negative effects that
the drug may produce. Any side effects that are produced
can be dealt with after your heart starts beating again.
To better understand this situation lets imagine that you
are in a car that has stalled on the railroad tracks and
directly in the path of an 80 mile per hour freight
train. If your car was built like an herb (complex with
many features) it would have a custom steering wheel, gas
pedal brakes, a clutch, and a gear shift for the four
speed transmission. The car would also probably have air
conditioning, power windows, a stereo radio with a CD
player, etc., etc anyway you get the picture a lot of
complexity. By the time you start the car, find first
gear turn off the radio and turn up your air conditioner
(your are really sweating) ........you will find yourself
1/4 of a mile down the tracks and in so many pieces that
a master puzzle maker couldn't put you together again.
What happened? The complexity of all those features
confused the issue, that's what happened. What you needed
was a car designed like a drug. High potency, very
powerful and super fast acting. If your car was a drug it
would look very different from the car we described
above. Your car would be a dragster forget the radio, air
conditioning and all that stuff. You don't even need
brakes, a four speed or a steering wheel.. What you need
is 500 horsepower and a gas pedal. Music,
air-conditioning, steering and even stopping are all
things that you can worry about after you get off the
tracks alive! The moral of this story is that if you want
to push things very hard in one focused direction it is
generally best to use a drug.
Now that you have made if off the tracks and have escaped
death you would probably like to relax and enjoy life.
Since the car built like a drug is uncomfortable and
difficult to control (a lot of potential side effects)
you had better exchange it for a car built like an herb.
A car built like an herb is well balanced and really
enhances your ability to maneuver around the challenges
you face during normal everyday situations. A car build
like a herb has all the options that you need to keep
yourself out of the kind of trouble that would require
you to use a drug.
The answer to the question should now be clear. Herbs
tend to be balanced gentle acting and relatively free of
side effects. When one is trying to prevent disease,
promote good health and improve the quality of life,
herbs are often the answer. Herbs can also be effective
as actual therapeutic modalities for some mild diseases.
Most herbs can be self-prescribed, by well informed lay
people, and do not require a visit to a doctor or a
prescription to obtain. As more people become familiar
with the wonderful effects of traditional herbal formulas
they will begin to recognize the benefits that these
natural medicines" have to offer.
Drugs on the other hand are more specific and
unidirectional in their action, more potent and generally
faster acting than herbs. Their general lack of their
balance and their greater potency tends to increase
potential to produce side effects, but this is the price
that must often be paid for the positive benefits that
they provide. If you are suffering from a serious medical
condition (heart disease, cancer, diabetes, etc.) the use
of drugs may be your only chance for survival. Modern
drugs can cure disease, improve the quality of life and
literally help doctors work miracles. However, because of
their potency and potential for side effects, the
decision to use them should never be taken lightly.
These are exciting times for anyone interested in health
and longevity. Unlike people living during other times in
history, we have the ability to benefit from the
advantages of both traditional alternative medicines and
sophisticated modern pharmaceuticals. Both herbs and
drugs have their place in the prevention and treatment of
disease. More and more health professional (doctors,
pharmacists, etc.) are now recognizing the value herbs
and are rapidly becoming advocates of, rather than
skeptics of alternative medicine
Herbs and drugs are like the right hand and the left hand
of health and longevity. Herbs and drugs compliment each
other and while you can get by with one or the other,
life is best when you have the benefits of both.

Sir Jason Winters Tea Tested In the Laboratory
Report to the
British Medical Association
Dr. Ian Pierce
A lot of news media attention has been given to a man
named Jason Winters and his remarkable recovery from
terminal cancer. When I visited him, he was already in
good health, but grossly underweight. When he was sent
home to die after being told that there was nothing more
that could be done to help, Mr. Winters turned to herbs
He contacted Lord Coggan, the most revered
and right honorable Archbishop of Canterbury. Mr. Winters
asked what herb he thought was mentioned in the Bible so
many times for blood purification and good health. Lord
Coggan did some research and informed Mr. Winters that
the herb was quite possibly Red Clover which is a herb
that has been used in Europe for centuries.
Jason had also heard from a Buddhist monk that
Herbalene was very good for tumors.
Jason also found that the American Indian people use
herbs called Chaparral and Sage to cleanse the body.
After obtaining all three of these herbs from three
continents, Mr. Winters was making a tea of each one
separately which was time consuming as well as
ineffective. It was only after mixing the herbs together
that the effects of the combination were felt. Mr.
Winters recovery was quite rapid and noticeable.
The news media had a field day with this story, it
perked my interest and I finally talked with Mr. Winters.
He gave me a sample of the mixed herbs and I had them
tested in the laboratory. We found that the herbs are not
a cure all, but merely purified the blood to such an
extent that a person's natural immune system starts
working and the body has a chance to heal itself. These
herbs would have the same effect on most illnesses.
The three quality tested herbs are gentle, but a highly effective influence on the
body flushing out accumulated toxins, which allows the body
to rebuild cells and return to a healthy state. The herbs
are safe and effective with no side effects and work well
with other medicines and therapies.
The problem is this - the news media, alternative
health people and some religious persons insist on
calling the "Jason Winters Herbal Tea" a cure
all, and I must object to this. These herbs do not cure
illness. They simply purify the blood and so, quite often,
the body can heal itself. This idea is accepted by most
health practitioners and is supported by Mr. Winters.
I have told Mr. Winters on numerous occasions that
this is what God intended for all his people.
