by Tony Isaacs, citizen journalist
(NaturalNews) Western medicine treats the body as a collection of parts instead of as a synergistic organism. When it comes to treating broken bones and injured body parts, mainstream Western medicine is unequaled. When this same approach is used to treat illness and disease - fixing or repairing the parts where the symptoms of underlying illnesses manifest themselves, modern medicine fails miserably.
In the instance of cancer, instead of addressing the causes of cancer - toxins and a weakened immune system which result in a loss of proper cellular communication and oxidation and the cells mutating to cells that form a protective coating and replicate without dying - we see instead treatments that either slash, burn or poison away the tumors and cancer cells, which further weakens an immune system cancer has already defeated and only worsens the conditions that led to cancer to begin with.
As a result, the way is paved for the return of the cancer or the introduction of another cancer or serious condition. Even worse, the road to further illness is often made easier due to the damage to the immune system and major organs caused by the treatment of the symptom.
Nature, on the other hand, gives us an array of tools to beat cancer and the underlying causes that lead to cancer, including foods, vitamins, minerals, supplements and lifestyle choices. The key is not merely addressing the tumors and cancer cells that are the symptoms of cancer, but addressing and eliminating the root causes that led to cancer to begin with and prevent it from being eliminated.
Here is a suggested protocol to eliminate cancer cells by either killing them or restoring them to normal function and to address the root causes of cancer based on what we know about cancer and what nature and lifestyle choices have to offer:
As soon as possible, cleanse your body to get rid of built up toxins like heavy metals and pesticides, as well as the undigested food, fecal matter and gallstones that build up in the body by cleansing your colon and liver and by chelation to rid the body of heavy metals. Such contaminations are breeding grounds for, and causes of, disease and illness. A toxic and unclean body weakens the body’s immune system that should be your first line of defense. Plus, once cleansed, the body is much more receptive to the good measures you take to rebuild your immune system and fight disease.
It cannot be stressed enough how vitally important it is to cleanse, restore and protect the liver before, during and after your anti-cancer and disease battle. As the great cancer pioneer Max Gerson observed, cancer cannot develop unless the liver is impaired to begin with. An effective cancer fighting regimen can severely tax an already weakened liver because it will result in the release of a cascade of toxins that are released when cancer cells die. Such a release can overwhelm an already impaired liver and can even be fatal if measures are not taken to protect and regenerate the liver. Following is a suggested liver cleanse and suggested further measures to take to cleanse, detox, protect and help regenerate the vital liver:
Five day liver cleanse.
It is best to have day 4 on a Saturday or at a time when you are staying at home.
Day 1: Drink 1 liter (4 cups) of apple juice during the day. Eat as normal otherwise.
Day 2: Drink another liter of apple juice. Eat normally
Day 3: Drink a 3rd liter of apple juice. Eat normally
Day 4: Do not take any sold food after lunch time
6pm - Take one level tablespoon of Epsom salt in a glass of water
8pm - Take another tablespoon of Epsom salt in a glass of water. You may find that you already have to take a trip to the toilet before the 8pm Epsom salt.
10pm - Mix one half glass of olive oil and three quarter glass of freshly squeezed grape fruit juice by shaking it very well in a jar with a lid so that it mixes well and immediately get into bed after drinking the mixture. You will probably make more than one trip to the toilet during the night as well as during the next day.
6am: Take another tablespoon of Epsom salt in a glass of water
8am: Take one final tablespoon of Epsom salt in a glass of water.
You will find that many gallstones from the liver will be passed and one will notice them in the toilet. They will vary in size from about pin head size to 10mm. Gallstones in the liver are a major cause of many health problems.
The above liver cleanse can be repeated every month until one finds that for two months in succession no more gallstones are passed. The liver will then be clean. (You can read about this in much more detail in Andreas Moritz`s book ` "The liver and gallbladder miracle cleanse" which you can download from his site at www.ener-chi.com)
Other things to do for the liver:
* Coffee enemas - help open the bile ducts so bile and toxins can be released properly.
* Coconut oil - a wonderful item everyone should take, it helps maintain a good bile flow.
* Beetroot juice - is also good for the liver and bile flow.
* Turmeric - is a cancer fighter itself, especially for smokers, and it helps regulate bile flow.
* Milk thistle - is a must as it helps protect the liver and actually regenerate it
* Alpha lipoic acid - another liver supplement that also helps fight cancer
* Selenium - a third liver supplement that is good against cancer too.
In the Berkson Clinical Study, three women who were facing liver transplants or chemo with interferon (a horrendous treatment with very low success rates for hepatitis and cirhossis), took milk thistle, alpha lipoic acid and selenium, modified their diets a bit and got some daily exercise and restored their liver functions to normal.
Besides cleansing and detoxing your body, also cleanse your environment to the greatest extent possible of pesticides, herbicides, household cleansers, air fresheners and other manmade chemicals. In an ideal world, you would move to the country where there was plenty of fresh air and sunshine and less stress. In the real world you may not find that possible, so eliminate common toxins in your household, workplace and other places you spend time.
ELIMINATE ROOT CAUSES OF DISEASE IN YOUR MOUTH
If you have mercury amalgam fillings in your teeth, have them replaced. In many instances, this step alone has led to elimination of cancer. Cilantro and chlorella can help eliminate heavy metal accumulations in the body. A specially blended and wildcrafted formula which utilizes cilantro and chlorella is Metal Magic by Jon Barron.
Perhaps worse than amalgam fillings is root canals. According to Bill Henderson, author of "Cure Your Cancer" and "Cancer-Free", root canals is "the big elephant in the room". Bill reports that "it has been proved by many dentists and oral surgeons I respect that virtually all degenerative disease starts in the dentist`s chair and points to the book "The Roots of Disease" by Robert Kulacz, D.D.S.
Bill goes on to say, "I have worked with hundreds of people who have struggled with all kinds of conventional and alternative treatment. Nothing seems to work to heal them. When these people finally wake up to the above and get their mouths cleaned up, they get well in weeks -- not months. Almost everyone (85-90% of the people I work with) has root canal-filled teeth. One lady had 13 of `em. They are ALWAYS related to the cancer. No exceptions."
Dr. Thomas Levy, one of the world’s experts on dental toxicity, told me he had done a study with Dr. Hal Huggins from 1994-2000. They removed "over 5,000 root canal-filled teeth." He said they took every one of them to the lab and tested it. Every one of them had toxins coming out of it "more toxic than botulism." His exact words. You can see on a thermogram the root canal tooth with its inflammation on the exact same meridian as the cancer tumor in the breast, colon, prostate, etc., etc. There are over 40 million root canal fillings done in the U.S. alone every year. Is it any wonder we are all getting sick?
DIET, NUTRITION, NATURAL HYGIENE & LIFESTYLE
No matter what supplements or treatments you may choose to combat cancer, you must first establish a good foundation. While vitamins, minerals, herbs and other supplements may help you beat the symptoms of cancer and help boost your immune system, the diet and lifestyle you live will be the ultimate keys to beating cancer and keeping it at bay once and for all because in the end it is your own body which will win the war.
To fail to embrace proper diet, nutrition and lifestyle and look for answers in supplements alone is akin to putting a new roof on a house that is falling apart from a broken foundation.
Immediately eliminate bad habits and begin building good ones so that you will make sure that you no longer have habits that weaken your immune system and that you will be able to build your body to fight and conquer illness. A sedentary lifestyle with a poor diet, lack of pure water, sunshine and fresh air, and constant exposure to toxins will in time lead to bad health conditions. On the other hand, also be sure to get an abundance of sleep and physical rest to conserve energy for healing and cleansing. Remember, bad health habits are open invitations for illness and disease to enter your body.
Begin and maintain a healthy immune-boosting and cancer fighting diet. A good balanced diet, pure water, fresh air, sunshine and mild to moderate exercise are some of the essentials. You will find that a good diet does not have to be a bad tasting diet Ã¢â‚¬" far from it! However, it should be noted that the very best and most healthy diet is one that is close to the diet our ancestors evolved to utilize: lots of fresh and uncooked vegetables, fruits, nuts, roots and tubers, and fish and free range meat not subject to factory farming or feed lot practices and uncontaminated by growth hormones, artificial fertilizers or pesticides. Granted that is a tall order for fish and meat, but it is strongly recommended to consume ONLY such healthy non-toxic fish and meats and to limit meat consumption period when fighting cancer. It is also best to consume little or no grain or dairy products. It should be noted that of all the foods, essentially only raw vegetables and fruits contribute to an alkaline pH. Juiced vegetables and fruits are an excellent form of nutrition (Note: eat much more vegetables than fruit due to the high sugar content of fruits).
The Budwig Diet is an excellent and proven cancer fighting diet which is highly recommended, especially the flaxseed oil and cottage cheese portion of the diet. NOTE: When using the Budwig Diet, avoid alpha-lipoic acid and vitamin e supplementation. Despite what some overly zealous Budwig proponents believe, other anti-oxidants and supplements are fine with the Budwig diet.
Take the time to chew each bite thoroughly - as many as 50 chews if possible - to help aid digestion and take maximum advantage of the available nutrition.
So long as you are not physically wasted, fasting is an excellent way to begin virtually any disease fighting protocol. It helps the body eliminate wastes and toxins and reset itself to optimum health levels for healing and fighting cancer and other illness. Many people are able to beat disease and illness of all kinds, including cancer, simply by fasting.
After an initial fast of a few days or longer where you provide only the water needed to satisfy thirst, continue with a one-day-a-week fast. It will help keep your body cleansed and, if you are overweight, also help you reach and maintain your optimum weight. Two good daily fasts in addition to water only fasts when fighting cancer would be 1) a dark grape fast where you eat all the dark grapes and seeds you want but nothing else other than water (the concord grape is probably the best choice and seeds are a must!), and 2) a juiced vegetables fast.
Proper Food Combining
It is important to practice proper food combining in the cause of disease as this prevents the putrefaction and fermentation of foods within the digestive system, and therefore toxicity, caused by mixing a predominantly protein food with a predominantly starchy food at the same meal. For example a poached egg on wholewheat toast. Fruits should not be combined with vegetables for the same reason. Proper food combining requires far less digestive energy which is then released for other more important bodily tasks.
The Importance of Sunshine
From the very first days that man walked upon the earth, sunshine has been a key to health and survival. The importance of the synergistic relationship between health and regular sunshine cannot be over-emphasized for both physical healing and mental health (which is itself a key to physical healing for cancer and any other illness). Contrary to popular beliefs about the harmful effects of over exposure to the sun, abundant sunlight has extremely high success rates for:
* Safely stopping tumor growth, not destroying tumors (the only effect that conventional medicine recognizes), but stopping growth.
* Preventing cancer by stimulating the body’s vitamin D production.
* Preventing influenza like the bird flu also by vitamin D production.
Don’t overdo the sunshine, but sunshine is essential to the production of vitamin D, and, strange as it may sound, has been found to be essential in warding off melanoma as well as other cancers. Be sure to get full body sun exposure avoiding the heat of the day and not allowing oneself to become more than mildly "pink" or sunburned by gradually increasing exposure time from a few minutes to perhaps a full hour and more each day.
Fair skin and the number of moles are the major risk factor for melanoma (skin cancer), not sunlight overexposure.
In 1959. Jane C Wright, directing cancer research at Bellevue Memorial Medical Center in New York City, instructed fifteen cancer patients to stay outdoors as much as possible that summer in natural sunlight without wearing their glasses, and particularly without sunglasses. By that Autumn, the tumors in 14 of 15 had not grown, and some patients had gotten better. It was discovered that the one patient that didn’t have good results had not fully understood the instructions - while she had not worn sunglasses, she had continued to wear her prescription glasses. This blocking of UV into her eyes was enough to stop the benefits enjoyed by the other fourteen.
Indirect Sunlight Into the Eyes Guidelines
You really can’t get enough of this type of light. Sitting in a screen enclosed porch would be the minimum exposure and would require three times the duration to get the same effect as walking in full sunlight. Walking in full sunlight might only require one hour to get full benefit. Wearing a hat with a brim in bright direct sunlight should be sufficient UV protection. The UV problem for eyes is greatly over exaggerated to sell sunglasses which, like sunscreens, should be used sparingly.
Exposure to Nature and the Good Earth
From the good earth did life spring and mankind lived for eons in close contact and relative harmony with the good earth. Mankind developed for eons in harmony with nature. It is beyond mere theory that regular exposure to soil organisms and and the good earth provides both physical and mental healing. Many believe that there is an actual healing synergy from exposure to the earth itself. Today, far too many of us are shut off from nature in the artificial and closed environments of offices and closed in dwellings. To remedy this:
Take frequent walks in yards, fields and woods. Of course, seek out areas that are likely to be as free as possible from pesticides, herbicides and other chemical contamination.
As often as possible, take off your shoes, socks and sandals and go barefooted in the soil and grass.
Plant vegetable and flower gardens (and use only organic products!). If that is not possible, use pots and other containers for patio, balconies and indoors. Working with your hands (and feet) in the soil is one of the most physically and mentally healthy things you can do. Those who have not had the pleasure will be amazed at the peace and tranquility you will experience. Indoor plants bring the added benefit of adding extra oxygen and removing toxins from you air. Everyone should have plenty of them!
Rebuild and strengthen the body’s natural immune system. It is very likely that a weakened immune system contributed to your illness in the first place. It is absolutely certain that a rebuilt and strengthened immune system will help you beat your illness and keep it at bay. Again, good diet, nutrition and habits are all important Ã¢â‚¬" they lay the foundation for a strong and healthy immune system. However, they are not enough by themselves. You should build a good foundation and then make your body a healthy fortress against disease and illness. Quite simply, disease and illness hate healthy hosts. The stronger your immune system is, the harder it is for disease to survive and grow. And, to be the very strongest you can be, you need extra measures in the form of supplements as well as the healthiest foods. An oleander extract very much like you get when you make oleander soup was tested in Europe in 1986 - 87 and found to have six times the immune stimulating activity of the most powerful immune stimulators known to man.
Maintain an Alkaline pH and Get Plenty of Oxygen to the Cellular Level
Once cancer has gained a foothold, it does not survive well in the presence of an alkaline cellular pH level, nor in the presence of highly oxygenated cells. As Nobel Laureate Otto Warburg discovered, low cellular oxygen is a primary causal factor for cancer. His protege, Dr. Johanna Budwig of Germany, continued his work and found that in order for proper cellular utilization of oxygen to take place, our diets must contain adequate amounts of unsaturated fatty acids.
Although many people use food grade hydrogen peroxide to obtain extra oxygen, perhaps a better option without the concerns some have with hydrogen peroxide is the product OxyGen. Each capsule contains oxygen and the equivalent of 12 drops of 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide derived from a combination of magnesium peroxide and pure anaerocidal oxygen.
Be Sure to Take These Cancer Fighting Minerals
Make sure you have plenty of iodine, selenium, magnesium, potassium, zinc, vitamin C, calcium and Vitamin D. All have been proven to be essential in beating and avoiding cancer. As mentioned above, cancer cells have lost the ability to be shut off by the body in what is called cellular apoptosis. These cancerous cells simply become abnormal and outlive the other cells in their normal cell life/replacement cycle and end up crowding out a territory over time. Iodine goes in and both does away with the surrounding cyst where cancer has set up residence and then also goes in and allows the specific shut down of the individual cells that are abnormal, diseased, or beset w/ pathogens to make room for new cells.
Some notes on iodine and selenium:
Many people who take iodine and selenium take far too little for maximum therapeutic benefit. Both elemental iodine and potassium iodine should be taken and the total amount of iodine should be 100mg or more, perhaps beginning at 50mg and working up.
Magnascent is a good form or elemental iodine. Lugols is also widely used. Since Lugols contains both elemental iodine and potassium iodine, the total amount of iodine one can take with Lugols is 300 mg.
Selenium MUST be taken with iodine in order for iodine to be effective.
The best form of supplemental selenium for fighting cancer appears to be methylselenocysteine. The most common form of supplemental selenium is selenomethionine whose general proteins have no anticancer activity. Another form, sodium selenite is more frequently metabolized to the toxic metabolite hydrogen selenide (H2Se), which does have anticancer effects but is more toxic than selenomethionine. Its primary mode of killing cancer cells (and at high levels, normal cells) is through the process of cell necrosis. Cell necrosis provokes inflammation and may kill healthy cells along with cancer cells.
The recommended form of selenium, methyselenocysteine is found naturally in some vegetables including garlic, brassicas, leeks, and onions, especially when these are grown in high selenium soil. Methylselenocysteine is easily converted to methylselenol which has been demonstrated to be an effective anticancer form of selenium. Rather than killing cancer cells by necrosis, methylselenol kills cancer cells through apoptosis. Apoptosis is an orderly process of cellular self-destruction that does not provoke inflammatory responses. Methylselenol is also known to inhibit angiogenesis in beginning cancer tumors. Angiogenesis, the creation of new blood vessels, is necessary for cancer cells to grow into a tumor. For cancer prevention, doses of 200 to 400 mcg of methylselenocysteine are generally considered safe without medical supervision. Nutritionally-oriented physicians may use as much as 900 to 2,000 mcg selenium from methylselenocysteine daily as part of a comprehensive cancer treatment protocol.
Drink Lots of Healthy Clean Water
Water is essential for all healthy life; however, regular tap water contains trace amounts of hundreds to thousands of pesticides, carcinogens and other industrial pollutants. For that reason, the author recommends only the purest drinking water, such as reverse osmosis filtered water.
Exercise in Moderation
Regular exercise does not have to be grueling, but it is essential. Exercise stimulates the immune system, stimulates the production of natural human growth hormone, stimulates the production of hormones and pheromones that make us happier and healthier, and simply leads to a longer and happier life period. Innumerable studies have demonstrated the overall health benefits of exercise and the negative effects of a sedentary lifestyle lacking in exercise. It is not a coincidence that studies have shown up that those who exercise only a few hours each week have up to 50% less chance of developing many different kinds of cancer.
Do Not Neglect the Vital Trace Minerals
Trace minerals are essential in beating cancer and are in fact essential to virtually all of the body’s important processes when it comes to utilizing vitamins, minerals and enzymes for good health. Two hundred years ago, the top layer of our soil contained up to 80 or more different minerals. Today, over-farming and the chemical destruction of soil micro-organisms has stripped soils the world over of all but a handful of bio-available minerals, and even those remaining minerals are at levels that are only fractions of what were in the soil 100 years ago and continuing to decline.
Man’s body is designed to utilize at least 60 or more trace minerals on a daily basis, and did so for thousands of years by eating the plants that processed such minerals (and the animals that ate the plants with processed minerals. Quite simply, without minerals nothing else works as designed, and every mineral deficiency, whether major or trace minerals, results in the body compensating in one or more ways which are often unhealthy. The only way to get an adequate supply now is to supplement, and the very best supplementation is from plant derived minerals, such as those that come from the famous plant prehistoric vegetable deposits in Utah and contain 75 trace minerals. Those who take them regularly report remarkable improvements in their health (and the author himself takes them religiously each and every day).
The head of the National Cancer Research Foundation, Fred Eichorn, asserts that mineral deficiencies lead to changes in instructions to the DNA to make adjustments for alternate ways to produce hormones and amino acids - and that these changes lead to cancer. Eichorn believes that correcting those deficiencies leads to rebalancing that will eliminate cancer and his foundation’s website has some impressive testimonials: http://www.ncrf.org
Get Plenty of Healthy Omega 3`s
Good natural sources include extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil, avocados, and organic butter, or better yet grass-fed organic butter. An excellent supplement is Doctor Mercola’s Krill Oil, which also contains a healthy ratio of omega 6 to omega 3 fatty acids and has been shown to help ward against cachexia (the wasting of non-fat body tissue, especially skeletal muscle tissue).
Things to Avoid
Remember, what you avoid can be just as important as what you consume: Avoid sugar to the greatest extent possible. Sugar feeds cancer and other illnesses and causes a myriad of other health problems. Refined sugar is also the number one single cause of health problems in the entire world! Likewise avoid bread and other items containing bleached white flour, which is essentially empty and harmful calories that convert to sugar once ingested. Other items to avoid include non-fermented soy, pork, MSG, ALL charred foods and foods cooked at high temperature, aluminum and coated cookware, micro-waved food, food in plastic containers and styrofoam.
GO ON THE ATTACK
The next element of beating your disease and keeping it at bay is to go on the attack. As a matter of fact, all of the elements of the anti-cancer and disease protocol are elements of attack, because they make the body strong and inhospitable to disease. What I am talking about here is more than just making the body inhospitable to your disease, " I am talking about going on the attack and wiping it out! In the case of cancer, there are many very potent anti-cancer supplements. such as the ones listed above and several others.
One such supplement, named Sutherlandia OPC (not to be confused with the European anti-oxidant named OPC), is based on a remedy I have researched and written about, and has been used for the past five plus years in South Africa to treat HIV and cancer. Several thousand HIV patients have taken Sutherlandia OPC now and all are reported to be still alive and well with their symptoms either reversed or stabilized. Of the hundreds of cancer patients over the past five plus years, only 8 have been reported to not survive (5 were in their very final days and could not hold down the supplement and another three succumbed to organ failure as a likely result of prior traditional Western treatment via chemo). All the rest, save two who stopped taking the supplement once the tumors were gone and returned to their old lifestyles (and had the cancer return) are now alive and cancer free or else have their cancers in remission and tumors continuing to shrink. Compare that with the results of any mainstream medicine or treatment!
Dosage: The supplement comes in either an extract or capsule version and instructions call for five to 15 ml of extract three times daily or or 1 to 3 capsules twice daily depending on the stage and aggressiveness of one’s cancer.
Note: One can also make their own oleander extract at home by carefully following the instructions in these two articles:
The Recipe for Oleander Soup Part 1
The Recipe for Oleander Soup Part 2 - Tips and Advice
The suggested dosage for the home remedy version is 1 tablespoon 3 times daily.
Another source of oleander is the patented medicine version available from the Salud Integral Clinic in Honduras: http://www.saludintegral.hn
Iodine (see above) is an absolute must for anyone fighting cancer, especially breast cancer. Many people have beaten cancer with iodine supplementation alone and it is a supremely powerful item to include in any cancer-fighting protocol.
A supreme cancer tumor destroyer and cancer fighter for many forms of cancer is Inositol/IP6, such as is found in the product Cell Forte Max 3. According to several users interviewed by the author, it often seems to just melt away tumors in a very short time period, and works well to normalize the PSA readings in prostate cancer sufferers. One caution - Inositol/IP6 may deplete minerals and/or interfere with mineral absorption, especially calcium and magnesium. Be sure to get plenty of Calcium and Magnesium (a good thing to do anyway) and take a good mineral supplement, preferably plant derived minerals (a second good thing to do in any event). Intensive cancer fighting dosage calls for 8 to 16 capsules per day. Note: intensive use of Inositol/IP6 is not recommended for more than a few months at a time, with lesser maintenance doses of one to two capsules the rest of the time and occasional breaks from the maintenance dose of up to one month (to guard against mineral depletion).
Curcumin has many similar compounds to oleander and is a potent and highly proven cancer fighter and preventive. Curcumin has been particularly effective against cancer with smokers and helps prevent cancer in general from spreading. Independent research studies on the anti-cancer properties of turmeric suggests that Curcumin has the potential for treatment of five top cancers in the U.S. -- colon, breast, prostate, lung and skin. An added plus is that turmeric is a wonderful anti-inflammatory, and thus would be a vital addition for those who have brain cancer, where swelling is always a concern. To fight cancer, 2500 to 3000 mg per day is recommended, divided into two to three doses and taken either with meals or with bromelain as described below. The best sources of curcumin may be the Life Extension Foundation and Turmeric-Curcumin.com. Curcumin is can also be obtained by taking the common spice turmeric, though turmeric and most curcumin supplements are not very bioavailable. Coconut oil or milk may help absorption and some studies have indicated that absorption may also be increased with 5-10 mg of bioperine (or else black pepper).
A good blood tonic, such as the Blood Support one formulated by Jon Barron and made by Baseline Nutritionals, helps cleanse the blood and the liver and makes the body inhospitable to cancer cells.
Cayenne Pepper tincture is a very effective cancer fighter, especially so for prostate cancers and when used in combination with the flaxseed oil and cottage cheese elements of the Budwig diet.
Black cumin oil, also known as black caraway seed oil and blackseed oil, has been shown to be a potent cancer fighter and, along with oleander, it is one of the very few natural cancer fighters that have had good success against pancreatic cancer.
Immune boosting and cancer fighting mushroom products, such as RM-10, a proprietary blend of 10 mushrooms by Garden of LIfe and available at the best price iHerb - (PLUS you can get a $5 discount on your first order at iHerb when you use the referral code XOT949). This formula is so potent that the naturopath who developed it used it to save his mother from stage IV Ovarian Cancer. For more information about cancer fighting mushrooms see: Mushrooms that Fight Disease and Boost the Immune System.
Vitamin B-17, also known as laetrile, is a very potent and proven cancer fighter that is highly recommended although difficult to find (the best source is apricot pits). Note: laetrile by itself, or even as the primary element of a cancer fighting protocol, is best used by people who have been given 12-18 months or longer survival estimates, as it normally works best when taken for a prolonged period of time.
Colloidal Silver is another must in my opinion - it has been shown to be deadly to single cell organisms and pathogens, and various cancers have been shown to have viral and/or fungal qualities, at least after they have become established. The caution with Colloidal Silver is that it may also eliminate beneficial bacteria when taken in amounts large enough to fight cancer and so it is a good idea when taking colloidal silver to also supplement with probiotics (yet another good thing to do anyway - especially after cleanses). Many recommend that colloidal silver be taken with Colloidal Gold because gold appears to enhance the silver`s actions when cancer is present. Take one to two ounces or more daily while actively fighting cancer.
Bromelain. Several studies have indicated anti-cancer and anti-tumor properties of the enzyme bromelain, which comes from the pineapple plant. One of the primary anti-cancer properties of bromelain may be it’s ability to help prevent cancer from growing and spreading. Bromelain is also a powerful binder which can greatly increase the absorption of other supplements and medications (for that reason, a qualified medical professional. preferably a naturopathic one, should be consulted before taking large amounts of bromelain with other medications where increased absorption might be a cause for concern). Take 500 to 750 mg capsules thirty minutes before meals or two hours after meals. Good when combined with bromelain. For more information on bromelain see: Bromelain - The Wonder Supplement.
Besides attacking cancer, preventing it’s spread and tumor growth by the process of angiogenesis is critical. Many of the items in this protocol work against angiogenesis; however there are also two powerful angiogenesis inhibitors that should be included for maximum effect: Shark Cartilage and Bindweed. Studies have indicated that shark cartilage is effective at preventing cancer tumors from growing and spreading and bindweed was shown to be 100 times more effective by weight than shark cartilage.
Pancreatic Enzymes/Digestive Enzymes, especially those that contain chimotrypsin, have been very effective against cancer, especially pancreatic cancers. Digestive enzymes help in getting tumor response to treatments by disintegrating fibrinoprotein covering of tumors and make easy targets for the immune system to kill cancer cells by natural autophagy means. Also there are studies to show proteolytic enzymes mitigate tumor-induced and therapy-induced side effects, as well as indications that the enzymes are anti-metastatc.
Grapeseed Extract has also been a very effective cancer fighter and a supreme antioxidant with many proven health benefits.
The Beck type electrical zappers are sworn to by many and appear to have a history of eliminating cancer and illness from the body. Also, a great many successes have been reported by users of genuine Rife type machines, although they are hard to find and many inferior machines parading as Rife machines are out there. There are also the Zappers of Hulda Clark, although they are not my favorite. A CureZone member known as ParaZapper has a very good machine whom many, including myself, recommend for those who decide to use such machines.
STRESS REMOVAL AND A POSITIVE MENTAL ATTITUDE
The final key to winning your battle is your mental attitude. Remove as much stress from your life as you can and believe that you are going to win. Stress and worry accomplish nothing worse, they are actually allies of illness and disease. You have surely heard the term "stress, the silent killer"? It’s true! So you must do whatever it takes to remove stress from your life and make your mental attitude your ally. Meditate, take yoga, change jobs, retire, go fishing, find a pleasant hobby; do whatever you must to remove stress and have a positive mental outlook.
Equally important, if not more so, is addressing any emotional issues from the present or the past which may be contributing to stress and preventing the body from optimal healing - may even have contributed to your development of cancer in the first place. There have been many reports of cancer going into spontaneous remission after people successfully addressed emotional issues and stress.
Remember, anyone or any issue which introduces or keeps worry and stress in your life is neither a friend nor an ally during this fight. And make no mistake, it is a fight - likely the most important one of your life. But it is a fight you can and will win. Think it, believe it and live it.
CACHEXIA (Wasting/Rapid Weight Loss)
Cachexia is loss of weight, muscle atrophy, fatigue, weakness and significant loss of appetite in someone who is not actively trying to lose weight, and is frequently seen in cancer, especially advanced cancers, HIV/AIDS and other conditions.
N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC), can help prevent cachexia and is considered an essential complimentary supplement to oleander in general. Other items that may may help combat cachexia are coconut oil and especially Garden of Life’s Primal Defense, a natural blend of 12 species of probiotics and Homeostatic Soil Organisms (HSOs). It helps support normal gastrointestinal balance of good and potentially harmful bacteria, and maximizes the benefits of a healthy diet by supporting normal absorption and assimilation of nutrients in the gut.
Some in the field of natural health will tell you that you can beat cancer through diet alone, or through diet and detoxing. In many instances that is true, and some of the most effective and popular natural anti-cancer protocols, such as the Budwig Diet, which relies heavily on flaxseed oil and cottage cheese (or yogurt or quark) are based on such a premise - and the use of flaxseed and cottage cheese as per Budwig`s instructions is very, very highly recommended.
A healthy diet and lifestyle is without a doubt an essential foundation for any cancer fighting program; however, our depleted soils and the introduction of modern industrial toxins and contaminants makes it hard to build a strong enough immune system through diet alone. Our immune systems were not designed to handle the multitude of modern toxins they now face, which is why cancer is largely a modern disease.
In my opinion, the more weapons you have in your natural arsenal which are compatible with one another, the greater your chances of success will be. That is why I advocate including several of the powerful natural supplements that have been proven to beat cancer and boost the immune system, and which address what we know about cancer.
See: Cancer is Getting Harder to Beat and Avoid
As a final note: for those of you who continue to believe the big lie that the harsh and ineffective options offered by mainstream medicine (and its half century record of broken promises to deliver a cure or significant breakthrough) are superior to nature, I ask: When did God become a quack?
