Cancer: Busting the Myths – More Natural Cancer Treatments
Natural cancer treatments abound if you care to look hard enough. It just goes to show that Nature has provided us with all the answers. We don’t need Big Pharma pushing its synthetic agenda to make us well or treat our diseases. The Western Medicine-Big Pharma conglomerate (including the AMA, FDA, CDC, etc.) would like you to believe there is no scientific evidence that natural substances are useful in treating cancer. This is in spite of the fact that Big Pharma companies routinely use natural substances to inspire the design of their synthetic “medicines”, which almost always have toxic side effects. This article is the last in the series (part 1 here) and continues the list of natural cancer treatments begun in part 2.
Natural Cancer Cures #10: Cannabis
One of the most controversial natural cancer treatments to spring to public consciousness has been the cannabis plant. It has gone from being shunned to embraced in many US states due to its potent medical properties. Cannabis has been shown to help with a variety of ailments including cancer. There are many medical studies now proving the cancer-fighting ability of THC. For one example out of many, look at the 2010 Spanish study which found that THC reduced “tumor growth, tumor number, and the amount/severity of lung metastases” in mice. Rick Simpson (Run From the Cure) famously made cannabis oil with THC, however the non-THC varieties which are high in CBD also have anti-cancer properties.
Cannabinoids (the phytochemicals or plant chemicals found in the cannabis plant) can cross the blood-brain barrier, and therefore show great promise as a brain cancer cure. Cannabis arrests the growth of cancer in these 4 key ways (all of which directly combat the hallmarks of cancer outlined in part 1):
- antiproliferative (prevents cancer cells from reproducing)
- apoptotic (induces cancer cells to self-destruct)
- antiangiogenic (prevents formation of new blood vessels needed by tumor to grow)
- antimetastatic (prevents cancer from spreading to other organs)
Natural Cancer Cures #11: Cesium Chloride
Cesium chloride is another natural cancer treatment which is both simple and astounding. To understand how it works, you need to remember that cancer cells, as discussed in part 1, function in a very different way to healthy cells. Healthy cells use oxygen to burn glucose (oxidation), whereas cancer cells use fermentation to burn the glucose. Dr. Otto Warburg won the 1931 Nobel Prize for discovering that cancer is anaerobic, not aerobic. Oxygen (O2), and ozone for that matter (O3), are the archenemies of cancer. It can’t stand them. So, as the cancer cells ferment the glucose, they produce the byproduct lactic acid, which begins to flood the surrounding cells. This naturally lowers the pH of the cells, taking them from a healthy alkaline state (around 7.3) to an acidic state (around 5.7). The newly created acidity also destroys the ability of DNA and RNA to control cell division, so the cancerous cells begin to multiply without limit.
A vicious cycle of cachexia can begin in some cancer patients. The body sends the excess lactic acid is sent to the liver to detoxify it; the liver converts the lactic acid into glucose then sends it back into the rest of the body; and the cancerous cells are likely to pick it up again since they consume 15 more times glucose than normal cells.
Cesium chloride works by smashing this entire situation and cycle. Specifically, it works in 4 key ways:
- Cesium is a very alkaline substance, so it dramatically increases the alkalinity of the body, boosting the pH back above 7 into an alkaline state where cancerous are less likely to thrive;
- Cesium starves the cancer cells by limiting the body’s uptake of glucose. They end up starving to death;
- Cesium halts the process of fermentation, the means by which cancer cells metabolize glucose;
- Cesium neutralizes the lactic acid, thus breaking the cachexic cycle and preventing the liver form inadvertently feeding the cancer with more glucose.
Natural Cancer Cures #12: DMSO / MSM
DMSO (dimethylsulfoxide) and MSM (methylsulfonylmethane, or just “organic sulfur”) are 2 different but related natural sulfur substances. In the interests of brevity, I have grouped them together here. DMSO, a non-toxic natural byproduct of the wood industry, has an amazing affinity to target cancer cells. It has been combined successfully with MSM, hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and cesium chloride. MSM is an sulfur compound which occurs naturally in food. It offers an amazing range of benefits, such relieving pain, reducing inflammation, and supporting healthy muscles, tendons, ligaments, hair, skin and nails. MSM improves your body’s ability to make its own antioxidants, especially the master antioxidant glutathione. It is impossible to overdose on either DMSO or MSM since the body automatically flushes out excess after 12 hours.
MSM tackles cancer in the following 3 ways:
- It transports oxygen deep into the cells (remember, oxygen is to cancer like garlic to a vampire);
- It kills microbes in the bloodstream;
- It helps get rid of lactic acid from the bloodstream to prevent cachexia (as discussed above with the natural cancer treatment cesium chloride).
“DMSO and MSM, when used together, have been shown to cause cancer cells in vitro to revert back to being normal cells. The only way this can happen is if they kill the microbe(s) inside of the cancer cell and/or completely reverse the anaerobic metabolism.
However, the only treatment designed to take advantage of this discovery is still an experimental treatment. It is not experimental due to toxicity, it is perfectly safe to use, it is only experimental in the sense that no one knows yet how to convert what was discovered in the lab into an actual cancer treatment.
It is also not known whether MSM actually helps the DMSO revert cancer cells into normal cells. DMSO, by itself, has been shown to revert many types of cancer cells into normal cells.”
Natural Cancer Cures #13: Modified Citrus Pectin
You may associate pectin with apples and as the binding agent within jams. It turns out that pectin is also found within citrus fruit such as oranges, lemons and limes. Modified citrus pectin refers to the pectin (a type of fiber) taken from citrus and made more digestible (by changing its temperature and pH, and shortening its soluble fibers). It becomes one of the simpler natural cancer treatments by virtue of the way it can stick to a certain kind of protein (galectin-3) which is associated with cancer growth. The website TheTruthAboutCancer.com explains:
“Researchers have long known that galectins, and in particular galectin-3, cause cells to clump together because of their sticky consistency. Over the last decade, however, studies have shown that these proteins, found especially in epithelial and immune cells, are also associated with cancer growth and metastasis.
A study conducted at the Karmanos Cancer Institute at Wayne State University in Detroit suggested that the presence of galectin-3 contributed to “cancer aggressiveness, metastasis, cell growth, adhesion, differentiation, angiogenesis, apoptosis, invasion, cell-matrix interaction, and dissemination of cancer cells through blood flow and extravasation [i.e. the beginning stages of cancer tumor spread].” Their findings also suggested that galectin-3 plays a role in cancer cell longevity.
- A previous study at the University of Alberta in Canada found that higher levels of galectins in the bloodstream equated with more frequent rates of cancer cell proliferation for breast and prostate cancer cells as well as for melanoma.”
The modified citrus pectin sticks to the cancer cell’s galectin-3, thus preventing angiogenesis (the cancer cells forming new blood vessels to grow more or larger tumors). Modified citrus pectin is also an excellent chelator, meaning it can binding with toxic metals in the body (such as lead, mercury, arsenic, cadmium etc.) and safely remove them without affecting the levels of essential metals in the body such as iron and zinc. Heavy metals (mercury, lead, etc.) are immunosuppressants and can lead to genetic mutations and cancer. Chelation itself via the substance EDTA (Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid) has been used as a successful complimentary or adjunctive natural cancer treatment. EDTA safely removes heavy metals from the body, just like modified citrus pectin, zeolite and certain kinds of clay.
Natural Cancer Cures #14: UV Light Protocol
The very simple and cheap UV light protocol works in a similar way to the radio frequency/zapping protocols of Royal Rife, Bob Beck, Hulda Clark and others listed in part 2. The UV light kills microbes using ultraviolet light (instead of a frequency or electrical current). According to the ICRF, you can use the UV light protocol for a variety of different ailments and conditions, including serious ones such as influenza, viral pneumonia, staph infections and ebola. Once the light strikes the cancerous cells, it begins to cause a die-off. Many of the dead cancer cells end up in the bloodstream, and may lead to an intense healing reaction. The ICRF lists 8 warnings to heed when using this treatment.
Natural Cancer Cures #15: Antineoplastons (Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski)
The story of medical doctor and PhD biochemist, Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski, is incredible. He discovered the genetic mechanism that can cure most human cancers: antineoplastons. Burzynski set up a clinic in Houston, Texas, where he has been harassed by the FDA and AMA ever since its inception. He defined antineoplastons as naturally occurring peptides and amino acid derivatives that inhibit the growth of malignant cells while leaving normal cells unaffected, which is a trait of all effective natural cancer cures. The antineoplastons correct the cancer cells by reprogramming them.
In the movie made about his cancer remedy (The Burzynski Movie), we learn about Burzynski’s medical records of various cancer survivors who chose his treatment instead of surgery, chemotherapy or radiation – and were completely cured. Even though the FDA’s own clinical trials show this treatment, with no side-effects, outperformed conventional cancer treatments on all counts, the FDA still strongly opposed it.
Natural Cancer Cures #16: Salvestrols
As detailed in my article Is This Why Only Organic Fruit & Veg Stops Cancer?, salvestrols are the wonder nutrients found in fruit and vegetables that hold potential as yet another effective natural cancer cure. They are only found in organic plants since other plants sprayed with pesticides don’t produce them. Salvestrols belong to a subcategory called phytoalexins, substances produced by plants to protect themselves against bacteria, viruses, fungi, insects and ultraviolet light. Salvestrols interact with CYP1B1 (the gene and protein enzyme which becomes over-expressed in cancer cells) to become cancer-killing agents. Like many other proven natural cancer cures above, especially laetrile or B17, salvestrols are a targeted and selective cancer killer.
Natural Cancer Treatments: Great Alternative Doctors and Cancer Healers
There are many healers and doctors, alive and dead, who have successfully healed many people of cancer using natural cancer treatments. Some of these doctors have their own protocols, whereas some use a combination of the natural cures listed in this 3-part series. There are too many to mention here, but here are 4 such people. Dr. Francisco Contreras heals thousands of cancer patients in his hospital Oasis of Hope in Mexico, and after battling the AMA and FDA he was able to open his current branch in Irvine, California. The late Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez offered nutritional protocols for patients with cancer and other degenerative diseases through his Foundation, which still promotes his work today. Gonzalez studied the cancer treatment of the late Dr. William Kelley, who treated pancreatic cancer with enzymes with an amazingly high cure rate. The late Bill Henderson developed his own cancer cure which built on the Budwig diet (part 2 of cottage cheese and flax oil, and specified the cancer patient follow a very strict diet which would lead to maximum alkalinity within the cells. He outlined the protocol in his book Cancer-Free.
Natural Cancer Treatments: Other Honorable Mentions
There are way too many natural cancer treatments to explain in detail, so we will finish up by highlighting a few. Walter Wainright has researched how fermented soy (e.g. tempeh, natto, miso) can reverse carcinogenic cells to normal cells. Soy contains phytoestrogens which can prevent breast, ovarian and prostate cancers; soy proteins mimic the powerful antioxidant enzyme SOD (Super Oxide Dismutase), the body’s first line of defense against cancer-inducing free radicals. Recently it was found that prostate cancer could be prevented by combining ursolic acid (a waxy natural chemical found in apple peelings and rosemary), curcumin (turmeric) and resveratrol (the longevity molecule found in peanuts, pistachios, grapes, berries, cinnamon and cacao). These 3 ingredients work together to block the cancer cells accessing glutamine, which cancer cells need to break down nutrients and get energy. Vitamin D is another very important nutrient which is often overlooked but which some studies have revealed can slash your cancer risk by 77%. It’s important not to get too much sun, but just as important not to get too little and become scared of the sun either.
Cancer cures are more flashy and attention-grabbing than the simple things you can do every day to protect yourself against cancer, such as avoiding carcinogens like fluoride, mercury, aluminum, tobacco and glyphosate. Eating an organic, whole-foods based diet is obviously very important, however we can single out some foods above the others for their outstanding cancer-killing properties. Turmeric is at the top of this list. Other foods and herbs such as ashwagandha, aloe vera, carrot, wormwood and sheep sorrel are also noteworthy.
Natural News published this short list of natural cancer treatments recently too:
For colorectal cancers, it’s legumes and leafy vegetables. Beans, chickpeas, lentils, and split peas are brimming with anti-cancer compounds called phytates.
Spices are also attributed with anti-cancer properties. Turmeric, for example, is an important ingredient in Indian curries and Okinawan tea.
If you’re a pre-menopausal woman who’s worried about breast cancer, a daily serving of beans or lentils can cut the risk by two-thirds. Adding legumes or wholegrains like bulgur wheat and brown rice to your meals will raise your protection to more than 90 percent.
Mushrooms are rich in amino acids that supercharge the immune system. According to Australian researchers, they can protect against viral infections and breast cancer in women.
Citrus fruits have a phytonutrient called hesperidin. In addition to healing and shielding your DNA against carcinogens, citrus zest also lower the risk of skin and breast cancers.
The entire allium family share anti-cancer properties. Like turmeric, red onion has quercetin, a phytonutrient that reduces the growth of bower cancer polyps. Garlic exhibits similar suppressive properties.
Cruciferous vegetables can minimize the risk of colon cancer for weeks after consumption. Brussels sprouts, especially, is an anti-cancer superweapon. Broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, and kale are almost as good.
Soya bean and flaxseed have phytoestrogens. Different from oestrogens, phytoestrogens do the work of two by reducing the risk of breast tumors and menopausal hot-flush.
Then there is the ever-popular antioxidant-rich apple. Eating one a day (peel and pulp and all) actually keeps various cancers away by reactivating an anti-tumor gene called maspin.”
Natural Cancer Treatments: Final Thoughts
In conclusion, cancer is something you need not fear any longer. Yes, it’s a serious disease, but it doesn’t have to be a life sentence. There are so many natural and effective options you can explore if you or your loved ones get cancer. Like it or not, cancer has or will become a major reality in the lives of close to two-fifths of Americans. Education is essential. Remember, cancer can be beaten – and it can be done without subjecting yourself to AMA “cures” which are just as deadly as the disease itself.
