The Cascade of Health Problems That Can Happen as a Result of Vitamin K2 Deficiency
DISCLAIMER: CONSULT WITH A DOCTOR BEFORE DECIDING ON A TREATMENT PLAN FOR CANCER OR ANY OTHER DISEASE.
A vitamin K2 deficiency is a double-whammy because if you’re deficient in vitamin K2 and your bones are sick, your blood will then be sick because your bones are sick. Your organs and your glands will also be ailing because there will be too much calcium deposited into them, causing parts of certain organs to become hardened and to die. And with blood problems come tissue problems in the weakest organs. Calcification of the pancreas can lead to diabetes. Calcification of the gallbladder can lead to serious digestive issues. Calcification of the liver or other organs could look like cancer on an MRI. Breast calcifications and false positives for mammograms can happen as a result of a vitamin K2 deficiency–which brings me to the next important revelation regarding vitamin K2.
Vitamin K2 Deficiency and Iodine Deficiency
If you have a vitamin K2 deficiency, you probably have high calcium levels in your blood supply, but not in your bones. And these high calcium levels in the blood, (which might be spectacularly high if the person in question is taking a vitamin D supplement on top of already being deficient in vitamin K2 already) can make it exceptionally hard for the body to absorb iodine.
We write a lot about iodine and how a deficiency of iodine affects human health. Iodine deficiency was programmed into the food supply in the 1980s when it was removed as a fortifying agent in food and replaced by bromine, an endocrine disruptor (and a major competitor for iodine receptor sites in the body). Fluorine in the water supply added insult to injury in regard to iodine deficiency as both fluorine and bromine are halogen elements just like iodine. When the body becomes deficient in iodine, it becomes susceptible to bromine and to fluorine toxicity. The number of serious health problems that can be caused by iodine deficiency is so long that it is beyond the scope of this article. Add bromine toxicity and fluorine toxicity to the equation and the health problems get even longer and more severe.
Vitamin D supplementation without vitamin K2 to balance its effects will make iodine deficiency worse. It isn’t hard to put two and two together as to why the media (funded by Big Pharma) promotes vitamin D supplementation so heavily. Vitamin D supplementation without vitamin K2 will cause a serious deterioration in health that ends with the development of autoimmune disease, cancer, or both (The autoimmunity-cancer relationship is usually referred to as “paraneoplastic”. Read more about paraneoplastic disease here.)
Lugol’s iodine is a natural cure for breast cancer, for other reproductive organ cancers like prostate cancer or cervical cancer and for thyroid cancer. (Read more about Lugol’s iodine as a cure for cancer here). Indeed, Lugol’s iodine is also a natural cure for autoimmune disease, and in this article, we talk in depth about the connection between autoimmunity and cancer and how iodine deficiency factors into both. Now, consider the fact that a vitamin K2 deficiency can cause or worsen iodine deficiency, and also that both vitamin K2 and iodine are not present in adequate quantities in the food supply of most of the developed countries of the world, and you’ll see that the perfect storm has developed in terms of cancer and autoimmune disease. Indeed, a deficiency of iodine can cause extreme weight gain or extreme weight loss, hyperthyroidism, or hypothyroidism, reproductive hormone imbalances, mood disorders, infertility, and a vulnerability to infection (via its effects on the immune system), among other serious health problems.
Iodine Therapy and Vitamin K2 as a Cure for Leukemia, Ovarian Cancer, Liver Cancer, Pancreatic Cancer, Stomach Cancer, and Lung Cancer
Scientists have studied vitamin K2 as a cure for leukemia and also as a cure for ovarian cancer and their results have been exciting, to say the least.
According to studies, vitamin K2 induces apoptosis (programmed cell death) in leukemia cells including HL-60 and U937 leukemia cell lines. Vitamin K2 also is able to inhibit the growth of ovarian cancer cells or induce apoptosis as well. It’s rare for scientists to readily acknowledge that a particular substance is able to cure cancer or kill cancer cells, but vitamin K2 does just that. Vitamin K2, Lugol’s iodine, and vitamin B17 (another cancer cure with an 80-90% cure rate) should be used together as a cure for lymphoma, leukemia, liver cancer, pancreatic cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer. Other types of cancer will also respond well to these therapies.
Note that pancreatic enzyme therapy is vital as a natural treatment to prevent the metastasis of cancer and to cure serious forms of cancer like pancreatic cancer. Read more about Dr. John Beard’s pancreatic enzyme therapy as a cure for cancer here.
Ovarian cancer as a reproductive organ cancer also responds very well to Lugol’s iodine therapy, so it makes sense that correcting a vitamin K2 deficiency would benefit ovarian cancer patients and patients with other types of reproductive organ cancer. Correcting a vitamin K2 deficiency in a patient with ovarian cancer helps the body absorb and utilize iodine better from food or from supplements. In countries where kelp and other iodine-containing foods are not eaten in high quantities, cancer sufferers should take Lugol’s iodine 2% at 50 mg per day (20 drops) to ensure that they get both potassium iodide (which feeds the reproductive organs) and molecular iodine (which feeds the thyroid gland). Taking the iodine as well as a vitamin K2 supplement (and other supportive supplements mentioned here in this previous article) will help ensure that the iodine will actually be absorbed and used.
The relapse rate for ovarian cancer is high, and the survival rate for relapsing patients is low. But in Japan, where patients tend to eat a lot of high-iodine-containing foods, vitamin K2 has been studied as a remarkably effective cure for ovarian cancer, particularly certain types of ovarian cancer cells. But these results may not be the same for patients in other areas of the world where iodine deficiency is built into the food supply and where bromine toxicity and fluorine toxicity are ubiquitous. That’s why patients who wish to use vitamin K2 as a cure for cancer or any other disease should always combine it with Iodine Therapy.
