View Full Version : what is the next best brand of alfalfa to Teresa's
04-06-2005, 06:55 PM
I was just wondering if there is a brand of alfalfa that is available in Canada and very much like Teresa's ... (if there is such a thing):). It isn't that I don't like Teresa's brand ... in fact, I think it is wonderful but, I have a friend that needs some alfalfa asap (has breast cancer). I also want to keep taking alfalfa as well but, right now, my concern is getting my friend started on some.
Thank you for any help anyone can give.

Near as I am aware, there is no brand near the quality of Teresa's. Hopefully, a local Canuck will chime in for you.

I know that Teresa's alfalfa is awesome but, I would really like to get my friend on some as soon as possible and timing is kinda important right now.
I am wondering if she ups her intake of almonds will that help keep her system alkaline enough for now does anyone know??? She was just told that her breast cancer is 'ductile' not sure if that is spelt right .. and not sure if it has gotten into the lymph nodes at this point.
If anyone has thoughts on the almonds ... please could you chime in?

I can only put my name on the Premium Blend of Alfalfa that I am able to purchase and I know that it is used for cancer research. Since your friend is dealing with cancer, I think it is worth overnight shipping to get her the best don't you?
Meanwhile, although raw almonds do help with alkalinity issues to offset cancer's acidic nature...they cannot do the same thing as Alfalfa which has been clinically proven as an anti-cancer nutrient.

Thank you so much for posting. I certainly agree that getting my friend some of your alfalfa would be best. I just thought if there was something similar here we could get her on asap it would be a start.
I talked to her this morning and said 'good news' I can get you some alfalfa rather quickly. Yesterday she was quite open to the idea ... today however, a different story ... she said that how will something a cow eats help her with cancer? I had no idea what to say. I told her that it would 'really' help her ... I have no idea what to do now ... I am not sure if I should just go ahead and order`her the alfalfa (and how much) and if the office has an info. sheet on the benefits of alfalfa that could be sent along???
My friend is having a hard time right now ... and she doesn't understand how something as simple as alfalfa could help her and her body. She told her children the other day and her youngest asked point blank if she is going to die? Very difficult.
Also I was wondering if Cellfood would be a good idea at this point as well?
I think if I was maybe to make a care package for her and perhaps presented all the info to her ... she may reopen to the idea again ... maybe. I most certainly do not want to put any strain or pressure on her or bog her down with a ton of info. but, I think maybe if given all of this, she will be able to do all of this at her own speed.

I'm sure she is talking with her emotions right now. Don't even overwhelm her with details right now, just encourage her to be open-minded and not rule it out. The alfalfa, Cellfood, almonds, etc., can't harm her, unlike other cancer treatments, so she really can't lose in trying these.
(((HUGS))) to you both

I'm emailing you an article I found awhile back on the web about alfalfa's benefits. I didn't write down the source and frankly I can't remember so I won't post it here.
Also, I'd think the hot lemon water would be good for alkalizing your friend's system, though I don't know if it has specific anti-cancer benefits. I do know cancer can't live in an alkaline environment though.
Alfalfa is all natural so what does she have to lose?

I just wanted to say that it is very caring and kind of you to be wanting to do this for your friend. It is a blessing to have such wonderful friends as you are to her.
I agree that she is more than likely going through a lot of different emotions right now, as she is going through this very difficult time.
God's answers are wiser than our prayers.

I just sent you some information about a product called phytodefense. It will help rebuild her immune system. Dr. Arthur Furst who developed chemo also help create some of these products. When all else fail just pray and encourage your friend.

Thank you for emailing me info., links and websites. My friend does not have email so, I am busy printing stuff off and will be giving her small doses of info. at a time so, I don't overwhelm her with everything going on.
I know that her taking some alfalfa would help her ... but, at the end of the day, I really can't and don't want to force her into something she is unsure about or doesn't want to do. I would never do that ... espically now because she is dealing with SOOOO much right now.
All I can do as a friend, is support her no matter what her decision is and hope that I can help her in some way ...

Hi Cherub - I have been where your friend is right now (almost 7 yr. ago) - and she is definitely being flooded with so many emotions, thoughts, and also important decisions that have to be made - very overwhelming. I think the "Care" pkg. is such a wonderful idea - and with the info. included she can read it when whe's ready and there's no pressure. You are such a wonderful, warm and caring friend....a true blessing. I'll be thinking of your friend and sending prayers for her!

Thank you for posting ... I think it is really important for my friend to understand that cancer doesn't necessarily mean the 'end'. I am trying to be as supportive, as available and strong for her. I know that she is dealing with 1000 different things all at once, I know, I too, have been there.
I am slowing passing info. to her for her to read and she is still resistant against the alfalfa ... but, I am getting together a care package for her ... complete with fuzzy pink slippers ...everyone needs fuzzy pink slippers.
Everyone should have friends to lean on, learn from and support during good times and the bad ... I was always told ... nurture your friendships for they are gifts that are priceless throughout your life. Like when you broke up with your first boyfriend who did you talk too and eat a pint of ice cream with, when you first kissed a boy, the friend that stood by you when no one else would, the friend that cried when you got engaged and cried even harder and happier when you told her you were pregnant ... isn't life filled with reflective moments of family and friends.
I love my friend ... not because she makes me laugh or always has a moment to spare for me ... I love her because she is herself. She is carefree, funny, hardworking and loving. Breast Cancer will not change how I think of her ...
I am grateful for everyone's help and suggestions and I will keep you posted on how she is doing.
