Cancer: the Forbidden Cures

Cancer is a growing worldwide epidemic, with staggering statistics: 20,000 people dying of cancer every day; 1 person out of 3 will be faced with cancer at one point in their life; and 1 million Americans are diagnosed with cancer every year. The standard treatment for cancer has been the same for many decades and is comprised of surgery, radiation and chemotherapy, the latter two being toxic to healthy cells in the human body. These treatments, as well as the research surrounding cancer, generate millions of dollars each year for the medical industry, with a typical cancer patient spending on-average $50,000 to treat the disease.

Sadly, there is clearly a lack of desire in the mainstream medical establishment to research alternative, natural medicines and treatments for cancer. One of the primary reasons for this that it is difficult to patent a natural treatment, thus limiting the revenue potential of natural and homeopathic medicines. Therefore, there is little interest from the pharmaceutical companies to put natural remedies through the expensive and arduous FDA approval processes. Another reason is believed to be that the pharmaceutical industry, through its control over the education system, drug-testing process and the FDA, as well as through its influence over the American Medical Association and medical publications, is not interested in a cure unless there is significant revenue potential as well as an opportunity for lucrative patents.

Over the last century, several natural cancer treatments have been developed and used to treat patients (even cure them) in the US and in other developed countries. One example is a natural concoction of herbs called Essiac, created by nurse Rene Caisse in Canada in the 1920’s. Another is an herbal cure created by Harry Hoxsey, who funded clinics in 17 states before they were all closed down by the FDA in the late 1950’s. And yet another is the Gerson Therapy, created by German doctor Maximilian Gerson, who was one of the first to suggest a nutritional approach to treating chronic disease in the 1940’s.

These alternative treatments and many others (Vitamin B-17 based Laetrile, shark cartilage, mistletoe-based Iscador, a Vitamin C based treatments) are discussed in this following documentary Cancer: The Forbidden Cures. The video also provides important commentary about the industry behind the mainstream medical system.

If you are interested in learning more about some of these “cures” there are many resources available online. Here are three more videos that will offer you further insight into alternative cancer treatments.

Charlotte Gerson discusses the challenges of alternative cancer therapies in the United States and why you might want to consider Mexico for such treatments.

The next video offers background about the use of mistletoe as a cancer treatment, and provides insight into the production and medicinal effects of the mistletoe-based Iscador® from the Hiscia Institute.

Here is a five part interview with G. Edward Griffin, author of World Without Cancer: The Story of Vitamin B17, discussing treatment of cancer with Vitamin B-17 and substance Laetrile.

And finally, here is Rick Simpson’s Run From the Cure, an excellent documentary about the benefits of natural hemp oil in curing cancer.

There is plenty of evidence available demonstrating that cancer can be treated without chemo/radiation/surgery.  If you are battling cancer or know someone who is, then taking a look at alternative treatments might offer an additional ray of hope.

    To all who have contributed to providing an opportunity to look and think outside the box…thank you.

    I have had many friends come to me over the last 5 months and direct me to some of the above mentioned websites and videos.

    One very frustrating aspects of using, wanting to and discussing alternative cures/remeadies is how easy it is for the established medical soceity to just say…”Anecdotal”.

    Why can we not get the established so called athorities to explore other possibilities to supplement the cancer treatments used today.
    I think some of the deep seeded reasons have been touched upon here on this website.

    I am currently blogging my cancer experience on Cafe Reno Facebook profile…this will soon be available on as well. Included will be the impact of the Medical Treatment and anecdotal version of alternative treatment. Either way folks I am not “checking out” anytime soon.

    Hello everyone and how we doing, i would like to inform most serious cancer patients that i have a source to cure different kind of cancer with medical grade hemp oil because the hemp oil only will not cure cancer without RSO treatment control and no fees are requested before meeting my source. for further details. come to

    What about Burzynksi?

    The FDA spent millions of our tax dollars going after him even though he was the only one having success with curing incurable brain tumors… while at the same the time the FDA was trying to steal Burzynski’s patents:

    • James Peters

      He can’t cure cancer

      1. Burzynski has never yet completed a useful drug trial out of 60+ attempts, but instead exploits Phase I and II clinical trials to use untested mixes of chemo, urine compounds and immune therapy.
      2. Burzynski’s experimental treatment regimen, unlike every drug trial I’ve ever heard of, charges the patients for time, material, and tests. The fees seem excessive to me, but the key point is that even if he is a brave and maverick doctor, he ain’t a charitable one.
      3. Burzynski’s cure rate, when you strip away the marketing, is not any better than conventional therapies.
      4. When he claims “gene-targeted therapies” or “personalized medicine” he’s using the same tumor marker tests as any other cancer center to prescribe the same targeted immunotherapies and drugs as any other cancer center. His only unique addition is by no means gene-targeted and quite probably less effective than front-line therapy.

      Conclusion: If Burzynski really does have something uniquely effective, he needs to set aside this short-term loop-hole (and patient) exploitation and actually complete a clinical study, conduct rigorous basic science, publish his results in a high-impact journal, and stop profiting from the tragic hope of suffering families. If he really had a light, and he hid it in a bushel (and charged admission to see); what a horrible, horrible profiteer.

      I’m honestly prepared to be wowed by some solid science from the Burzynski Clinic, but given their business model, I won’t hold my breath.

      1) By 1993 Burzynski had treated approximately 2400 patients.

      2) Burzynski needed to produce seven “best case scenario” patients.

      3) a patient that survives is a better “best case scenario” that a patient who died of the disease.

      4) Therefore Burzynski would produce seven patients who survived if he could.

      5) Burzynski produced only five patients who survived, and two who did not.

      6) Therefore Burzynski could not produce more than five patients who survived.

      7) Therefore no more than five patients out of approximately 2400 actually survived.

      8) 5/2400 is approximately 0.00208, rounded to 0.2%.

      Now you can argue that there were more survivors but Burzynski had no records for them, but that is a condemnation of Burzynski in itself.

      You can also argue that there were more survivors but they refused to consent to release of their records, but why would they do that? We’re supposed to believe that they believed they owed their lives to him. Why wouldn’t they consent to release of their records to save his license so he could save more patients like them?

      So, as I finished before, what other reason is there for Burzynski not to produce seven patients who survived, out of thousands treated?

    Do a search on the use of baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) to prevent and treat cancer. Cancer needs acidic conditions to thrive. Baking soda alkalizes the blood. In some cases a sterile solution of bicarbonate is injected into tumors…which then disappear. Also the work of Royal Rife…
    The whole western medical paradigm is based upon money, not cures. The system is great for treating most emergencies and severe trauma, but for chronic situations, it tends to compound the problems since it suppresses symptoms rather than to treat causes. TCM (Chinese Medicine) goes to the root of problems of imbalance…

    Studies show that cancer cells feed off glucose. Perhaps a lower carbohydrate diet that is limited to vegetables and some fruit as a carb source will help.

    Don’t forget black salve. Look it up for yourself you will be surprised. It worked for me.

    The elephant in the room for both “alternative” and “conventional” medicine is the very same elephant. The only reason alternative medicine works is the fact that conventional treatment didn’t kill the patient. Neither understand the nature of cancer therefore they both continue their Quixotic quest searching for a cure.

    The elephant: the false assumption that cancer has physical causes. Cancer is caused by our emotions and what does “science” do? They scrub away any way the mind (placebo) can affect their faulty studies. Get rid of the emotion (resolve the conflict) and the body heals naturally.

    Eat well … Only non gmo foods. Greens, mushrooms, onions, beans, brerries, nuts and seeds,
    Get a home water distiller, it is like a big coffee maker, exercise, do deep breathing exercises to oxygenate your system, and forgive anyone who has hurt you. Do this and take good quality supplements. As you detoxify your body will soon be at maximum healing capacity. Dental care and flossing is also extremely important.

    Good luck, God bless, be well friends

      The entire ICD-0 contains no reference to “periodontal” in any of its diagnosis headings. ICD-10 has about 15 diagnoses concerning it, showing that the body of knowledge is now admitting that the mouth is part of the body and interacts with it. There is a diagnosis for “newborn with complications caused by periodontal disease in mother” – which will allow the condition to be tracked for affects later.

      The AMA has postponed adoption of this for at least 2 years, and is still trying to kill it. Most of the rest of the world is on it already, Europe, Canada and China. It will also caused increased reporting of surgery errors, which is most likely one of the reasons they are against it.

    Brilliant Presentation and one that must be seen by every person living on this planet.

    Illness is an Illusion that makes people blind hoping the healthcare professionals have the miracle cure and save their life. Unfortunately, we have none, yet people do not want to believe what you or I say.

    As you pointed out, the culture of dependence on doctors has only created giant corporations who are now managing healthcare service and employing medical professionals. These corporations are in control of what they do and what they must not. Doctors have now lost control and the independence to offer the best treatment to help you alleviate pain and suffering.

    Doctors who defend their ethical duty and protect fellow human are humiliated and ostracised by the very institutions that claim to protect doctors and patients.

    Please check out my videos published be Medifix and tool “MAYA” that will help you keep away from the professionals who are helpless and follow the protocols that can make your life a living hell.

    And never forget what the ruling military/industrial/pharmaceutical complex did to Royal Raymond Rife and his cancer cure. The cancer industry is what is keeping the medical industry afloat. Cancer equals profits for them. Huge profits.
