Methionine restricted diet | Sodium selenite | NORI Protocol | Mark Simon & Ryan Sternagel

the Anti-Cancer Revolution

Full show notes @ https://thesternmethod.com/mark-simon/ Mark Simon, CN, CHCC, CPBN Mark Simon established the Nutritional Oncology Research Institute (NORI) in 2011 as an organization focused on advancing cancer care through optimization of diet and application of targeted nutraceuticals. Mark Simon's background and interests are in diverse fields including clinical nutrition, biomedical engineering, plant-based nutrition, naturopathic medicine and neuroscience.

Through his work at the Nutritional Oncology Research Institute, Mark has developed the NORI protocol, based on the two core concepts of restricting methionine intake and using high doses of sodium selenite (selenium salts) and other targeted nutraceuticals to reduce tumor cell growth. In-vivo studies and clinical experience affirm the effectiveness of this type of diet. The concept of using pro-oxidants versus anti-oxidants is discussed as is the mechanism of sodium selenite and the relationship between methionine and cancer. This conversation may challenge the way you currently view your nutritional protocol. We encourage you to keep an open mind. Be prepared to stretch your current point of view and perhaps gain some new insight and ideas. Please enjoy this next installment of the Anti-cancer Revolution! Be sure to let us know what you think below. 0:41 Fruit or no fruit – That is the million dollar question Mark promotes a methionine restricted diet - high fruit, moderate vegetables, no animal products Utilizes Vitamin E, tocotrienol, selenium, iodine 2:30 Overview of the NORI protocol Based on two core ideas -  methionine restricted diet &  high dose selenium (sodium selenite) Mark started the diet based on personal experience after his wife was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer Diet plays a huge role as a tool in cancer prevention Sodium selenite is a form of selenium studied for over 40 years Is a selective chemo-therapeutic agent Can kill cancer cells without causing harm to other cells High bio-availability Can be administered intravenously or orally 6:00 Relationship between methionine and cancer cells Mark discover the work of Dr. Daniel E. Epner, MD - clinical studies using methionine restricted diet Video by Dr. Mark Gregor on Mark’s website describing methionine and what it does Methionine is an amino acid If methionine is restricted, cancer cells die Could potentially work as stand-alone therapy 8:30 How do you reduce methionine in the body and what is the end goal? Through the diet methionine levels can be brought quite low All whole foods contain some level of methionine Fruits contain the least amount of methionine Grains, nuts, beans, seeds, animal products contain the most Best to cycle methionine levels on and off In the future hope is to be able to bring methionine levels to zero 10:05 What do cancer cells do with methionine? Cancer cells use methionine as a building block  Methionine is not needed for normal cell growth- not an essential amino acid MTOR pathway is stimulated less with methionine restriction Methionine restriction makes cancer cells more sensitive to treatment NORI diet is a platform to slow down tumor growth and make cancer more sensitive to treatment 13:50 What are your thoughts on eating fruit? Fruit is not the same thing as table sugar Most fruits are low glycemic Fruitarian diet does not cause high blood sugar 80-10-10 diet (80% fruit, 10% protein, 10% fat) Sugar does not encourage tumor growth, insulin does Ketogenic diet doesn’t work long term because glutamine is not cut out of diet 18:00 NORI diet restricts other cancer-dependent amino acids besides methionine Glutamine Phenylalanine Isoleucine Tryptophan Asparagine 18:30 NORI diet is an alkaline diet Alkaline diet helps neutralize acidity around tumors Anti-inflammatory Anti-angiogenesis Dr. Robert Morse recommends a similar program 20:05 Where do you stand on juicing fruit? Is there a difference between eating fruit and vegetables with or without fiber? A little bit of freshly squeezed citrus juice is fine Bottled juices - no Believes juicing is counter-productive More antioxidants flooding the system makes it harder to fight cancer Hasn’t seen data showing success with juicing and stage 4 cancer Plant based diet is a good idea Cancers are crazier today than years ago Gerson’s original diet involved orange juice and lower protein (lower methionine) Juicing probably doesn’t get phytochemicals up to appropriate levels 23:45 Can you elaborate on antioxidants and cancer? Study with animals on low-antioxidant diet slowed tumor progression Normal cells operate on a low level of oxidative stress Cancer cells operate at a high level of oxidative stress because of altered metabolism Adding oxidative stress will push cancer cells over the edge Cancer cells are dependent on anti-oxidant systems like: Glutathione Thioredoxin Catalyse Superoxide dismutase If you block glutathione synthesis, cancer cells die off Putting anti-oxidants into the system aids cancer survival such as: Vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol form) Vitamin C NAC (N-Acetyl Cysteine) Vitamin A NORI program is careful not to incorporate juicing or other antioxidant supplements NORI program utilizes pro-oxidants which increase oxidative stress Sodium selenite Generates hydrogen peroxide Generates ROS (reactive oxygen species) Triggers cell apoptosis 28:30 What are your thoughts on using antioxidants to increase chemotherapy and drug success? Oncologists tell patients no antioxidant supplements because they know they will interfere with treatment Antioxidants protect cancer cells Mark hasn’t seen any research showing antioxidants make chemo work better Research shows pro-oxidant therapy helps chemo work better  Sodium selenite Ozone therapy Sulforaphane (need 10-20 grams or more) - not too efficient 32:30 Can you give us a breakdown of the different levels of methionine within food groups? Foods highest in methionine: Chicken and fish Next: other animal products- beef, dairy, eggs Mark has been vegan for 30 years (supplements with B12 occasionally) Caution: B-12 can be used by cancer cells for protein synthesis Soy, sesame seeds, and brazil nuts are high in methionine Lowest: apple, most fruits  Dark green veggies are fairly high Hard part is getting enough calories on a low methionine diet Potatoes and rice work to bring up weight 38:40 Cycling on and off low-methionine foods Encourage fruit-only breakfast (easily digested, full of enzymes, fiber, water, cleansing, detoxifying, extends a fast) Book: Harvey Diamond, Fit for Life  Food combining Methionine restriction is anti-aging Ketosis is not necessarily a healthy state -  not natural/normal  Not a proponent of fasting for cancer patients - too stressful Recommends a fruit-only diet instead of fasting Super-charge your system by eating raw, high-energy, plant-based foods 44:30 What is the distinction between nutraceuticals and supplements? Use supplements to fill in gaps Recommends supplementing with iodine, selenium, vitamin D, zinc, B12 Nutraceuticals can be used to lower inflammation Sodium selenite is used as an anticancer nutraceutical  Vitamin E delta tocotrienol- high dose kills cancer cells Glucosamine alters cancer cells High-dose zinc is effective in killing cancer cells Melatonin effective in fighting cancer (300 mg)  Curcumin - plant derived medicine - not very bioavailable Medicines work because of toxic effects on system/system modulation 50:20 How did selenium and tocotrienols stand out to you? High index of therapeutic value High bioavailability Water solubility ADME Absorption, Distribution, Metabolism and Excretion - nutraceuticals are analyzed according to this standard Sodium selenite has reached animal and human clinical studies (in-vivo) Methionine restriction is being used in ongoing human clinical studies 55:20 What is the mechanism of action of sodium selenite? Selective pro-oxidant Study which shows it inhibits glutamine metabolism Natural high uptake into tumor tissue Radioactive sodium selenite (SE-75) was used in the 1960s to highlight cancer cells on imaging tests Relatively small amount of sodium selenite (10-20 mg) is typically needed at therapeutic threshold levels 9 hour half-life Cells need to be exposed 24 to 72 hours or more - the longer the better Lower doses can be sustained for longer periods of time .3 mg/kg of body weight is dosage for IV sodium selenite IVs are used for pulsing in addition to oral dosage IVs can become cost-prohibitive 1:01:30  Hazards of buying sodium selenite online Can be risky - might be over a toxic dose or too weak Mark sells some on his website Might not be pharmaceutical dose Signs of overdose Hair loss Brittle nails Use under supervision 1:03:00  Is this an extract of selenium versus a whole compound?  Sodium selenite is a mineral salt - inorganic form of selenium- trace mineral Chemical formula Na 2 Se0 3 Body needs it all the time Organic forms vary in the level of anti-cancer activity 100% water soluble- easily crosses blood-brain barrier Vitamin E used is extracted from annatto seed - delta tocotrienol Pro-oxidant  Looks and behaves like unsaturated fatty acid Initiates lipid peroxidase chain reaction Ends up in mitochondrial membrane Interacts with and generates more ROS Triggers cancer cells to die - apoptosis Mitochondria are dysfunctional in cancer cells Breaks the positive feedback loop of the mitochondria so cells can die 1:09:39  You mentioned DHA. Where do you get yours? Mark uses an algae oil Studies show DHA can be used therapeutically in cancer (6g/day) DHA will become incorporated into the cancer cell membranes and will undergo lipid peroxidase reactions Algae oil is unstable and oxidizes easily  Antioxidants are added to maintain stability and this can be enough to interfere with NORI protocol 1:11:20  Budwig diet - similarities and differences Fruit, berries, no animal products Cottage cheese and flax oil mixture Flax contains ALA, a polyunsaturated fat Studies show ALA can trigger cancer cells to die Flaxseed oil must be freshly pressed (15-30g) Cottage cheese/quark works as an emulsifying agent to break up the oil for bioavailability Theoretically based on the science, it should work Not in favor of it right now because there are better methods Tocotrienol does the same thing only with more efficiency 1:15:30 Lithium Chloride Still under study Has a favorable effect on cancer pathways Used as treatment booster Studies with lithium chloride used in conjunction with 5FU in animals 1:17:07 NORI protocol is currently using 6 agents 3 core agents make up the cytotoxic cocktail Vit E tocotrienol (1200mg), sodium selenite, Vit K3 3 other agents working around the cocktail Glucosamine (8g), zinc citrate (150mg), melatonin (300mg) Used in conjunction with methionine-restricted diet Protocol is continually evolving based on clinical experience Simple, low-cost 1:19:10 Where can we find you? https://antibioticwatchdog.com/ Website covering relationship between antibiotics and cancer Free ebook https://norinutraceuticals.com/ (store)  https://noricbd.com/ https://nutritionaloncology.net/ Info on program and protocol Mailing list CBD products and nutraceuticals - Use code STERN Free consultations (30-60 min) 1:22:00 Closing remarks Please check out the podcast links and the links on our website (“What We Use” section).

The Rule of 40 with Mark Simon | Ep. 112

Data Gurus

We have the pleasure of welcoming Mark Simon, the Managing Partner for Hawkmoon Advisors, as our guest for today’s podcast.Mark is joining us to talk about his journey and share his experiences with the kind of work he has been doing to help small businesses scale, grow, and reach their goals. He also talks about what ten-million-dollar companies need to be thinking about if they want to scale.About MarkMark disappeared off the research industry radar for a while after leaving Toluna at the end of 2019 and moving back to the UK. He joined an IT SaaS business in the UK called Datto, and after that gig came to a close, he set up a consulting business that helped small SaaS businesses get going.Mark’s journeyAfter finishing university, Mark spent a few years in Paris, teaching English at a high school. After that, he spent most of the rest of his twenties playing the guitar in a rock and roll band, touring around, and having lots of fun. Then he went to work for a marketing agency that won a contract to take AOL to the UK. At the time, Mark was about to get married, and being a bit bored with the work he was doing, he started looking around for something new. He ended up spending an enjoyable year as an individual contributor for a company called Greenfield Online in Europe, where he learned a lot. He then got a call from someone at Toluna, saying that they were about to list the company on the London Stock Exchange, and they wanted him to lead them in doing that.TolunaMark took a risk and joined Toluna. He now feels that was one of the smartest things that he has ever done. He set up a digital practice there, and they went to market properly. He had great fun getting them up to eight figures.An issueToluna had an issue in their North American business, and they asked Mark to go there to turn it around, which he did. He managed to turn things around fairly quickly, and he ended up staying there for another six years before returning to the UK.What ten-million-dollar companies need to think about in terms of scalingMark explains that at any point in your company’s trajectory, you have to think and act like you’re bigger than you are, and that applies from the CEO down to the people who you hire.Hiring is criticalIn Mark’s experience with fast-moving companies, he was spending 70-80 percent of his time hiring or coaching people. He points out that if you don’t do that as a leader, and you’re trying to scale, you are probably focusing on the wrong things.The people you hireLook for people who can act one level up but could also be capable of thinking two levels up.Recurring businessThink about some way to get recurring business and repeatable, predictable cash flow. That will build value in your company.IncentivesFor a ten-million-dollar business, all your incentives need to be in line. It is vital to over-emphasize rewards for long-term contracts.CustomersYour customers’ satisfaction needs to be ahead of your acquisitions.The Rule of FortyAt ten million, you need to make sure that your company can exceed the Rule of Forty. That is very important for any recurring revenue business.Expanding internationallyYou should not expand your company internationally too quickly because that could be dangerous if you don’t have a cultural understanding of what works well in different places.A framework for hiring salespeopleInterviewing salespeople can be difficult to do, so it helps to build a framework for hiring salespeople. Three things that are important to include in that process, regardless of the environment you’re in, are: Coachability A competitive streak Empathy, rapport-building, listening, and cultural alignmentAlso, any toxic high-achievers need to get removed from the team.Hiring a Head of SalesHiring the right Head of Sales can be a scary decision for a CEO to have to make,
