Cancer – the 4th Approach

Cancer – 4th Approach

Apologies again for the lateness – more internet problems, and for posting these out of order. Here is the missing 4th Approach.

Approach 4: Digestive Enzymes.

I have given the story in full in my book The Cancer Survivor’s Bible – but here is a useful summary

Wlliam Kelley was a dentist when he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Knowing that this was generally, and very quickly, fatal, he theorised that if the pancreas was diseased it wasn’t able to do its job of producing the pancreatic enzymes necessary to digest the food he was eating and therefore he was not getting the benefit of that food. So he started taking large doses of pancreatic enzymes in part to take the pressure off the pancreas.

Along with other changes – dietary etc – he was able to cure his incurable disease. Naturally he spread the word and people with various different cancers – mainly ‘terminal’ stage cancers – came to him for advice and help, and he found the same protocol seemed also to work for them – breast, colon and other cancers all responded to the treatment.

Apparently if you take the enzymes with food they help to digest the food and if you take them on an empty stomach they fight inflammation in the body – and cancer is an inflammatory disease.

So, for this reason, I would take high doses of proteolytic enzymes. Animal and human studies, generally small scale, tend to show that those taking the enzymes live much longer than those who don’t. That’s good enough for me.

Cancer 2

I owe all readers an apology. Yesterday my internet was down so I could not post this. Fortunately, it is back and so here it is.

We have all been in lock down – in Spain, where I live, it is gradually opening up and I was able to ask after a friend who died just before the lock down eight weeks ago. I had seen him a few days earlier and he had seemed in robust good health – particularly impressive as he was 84 years old so I was naturally curious as to what had caused his death. I was told that the doctors had detected a small tumour on his gallbladder and he went into hospital to have it surgically removed. The operation was a success but the patient died. It wasn’t the cancer that killed him but the operation itself or the anaesthetic. If he had not had the operation, if he had decided “what the hell, I’ll just live with it!” he would have lived at least another year or two or three or four, perhaps even longer. But, like many people, he wanted it out. Not having an operation might seem a silly thing to do but for anyone over eighty I think it is a reasonable decision. Why? Because cancers in the old are usually slow growing. I was told of the case of an eighty-six year old woman who was told she had breast cancer. The doctors proposed an operation but she refused saying: “I am an old woman. I am going to die someday. Who can say when?” It was her son who told me. She lived with her cancer for another 14 years, dying aged 100.

It is well known that elderly people have a relatively high incidence of not surviving an operation – and there is a greatly increased chance of dementia too within a year of an operation. My own mother, at the age of 75, died while being operated on for an ulcer. She simply wasn’t well enough to emerge from the anaesthetic. I myself am now nearly 71 and I don’t plan to have an operation unless I absolutely have no choice.

So sometimes not doing something for your cancer is the course of wisdom.

Approach 2

The second thing I would do if I were diagnosed with cancer is to take citric acid.

Our data suggests that citrate can inhibit tumor growth in diverse tumor types and via multiple mechanisms. Dietary supplementation with citrate may be beneficial as a cancer therapy.” (– Ren, J., Seth, P., Ye, H. et al. Citrate Suppresses Tumor Growth in Multiple Models through Inhibition of Glycolysis, the Tricarboxylic Acid Cycle and the IGF-1R Pathway. Sci Rep 7, 4537 (2017).

Citric acid, or citrate salts (ie magnesium citrate, sodium citrate  etc) interfere with glycolysis.  Glycolysis is the process by which sugars are broken down – and cancers love sugars. This is how they get their energy. Stop glycolysis and you stop cancer. It’s that simple. And, as this research summary makes clear , citrate also interferes with other processes that help cancer grow.

Citric acid is easily and cheaply available – it’s used in cookery and for preserving foods. The authors of one study suggested 1-2 grams every 12 hours, increasing to 1-2 grams every 8 hours. These are very conservative amounts which are a useful starting off point but one Mexican doctor [details in my book The Cancer Survivor’s Bible] recommends increasing the dose slowly but steadily until you can take a flat tablespoon (15 grams) of citric acid powder three times a day (total 45 grams) with meals. You would be advised to increase doses slowly because a sudden assault can cause the cancers to break up and release toxins into the body – some people have died because of this. Their treatment was too successful! So start with say 4-6 grams and every couple of days increase by another 2 grams until you get to the required level. Take with food.

So that would be the second part of my own cancer recovery programme. 

For more information I do recommend my book The Cancer Survivor’s Bible

Cancer – Approach 1

With all eyes on Covid 19, people with cancer and other serious illnesses have been temporarily sidelined by doctors. But as we are cresting the wave (the first wave?) of Covid 19 cases, doctors are now seeing that there could be many more victims than those who lost and are losing their lives due to the pandemic. Cancer patients in particular will find that their cancers will have progressed and therefore will require more extreme interventions with a lower chance of success. So cancer deaths may increase because of Covid 19

That is to see the problem from the point of view of the mainstream medical profession – which most people depend on and look to for answers.

But there is another way of looking at the problem. I believe there is a great deal that cancer patients can do for themselves cheaply in their own homes without damaging themselves through extreme treatments such as radiation, chemotherapy and surgery. 

For the next 14 days I am going to spell out some of the approaches that I would do if I were in the position of these cancer patients waiting at home for the doctors to deal with them. They may or may not provide a complete cure (I believe that in many cases they could) but they will certainly extend your life and improve the quality of that life. And I am not suggesting that you choose which ones to do. I am suggesting that you do all of them together.

Approach 1

Yes, Vitamin C. 

Vitamin C is not just good against flus and pneumonia and possibly against Covid 19, it is also good for any inflammatory condition – and cancer is an inflammatory condition. It is also very important for the immune system. The more vitamin C you take the better. A normal healthy person will almost certainly be able to handle 10 grams a day divided into 2 or 3 equal doses.The best and cheapest way to take vitamin C is in its powder form as either ascorbic acid or as sodium ascorbate ( a neutral salt) for those who have problems of stomach acidity. (if you have ascorbic acid then you can neutralise it with sodium bicarbonate by mixing them together in equal proportions).  One flat teaspoon of powder is 5 grams.

If you are fighting cancer you will be able to tolerate much higher amounts of vitamin C (20 or 30 or even 40 grams a day) because vitamin C is completely non-toxic (for the vast majority of people) and the body uses what it is given – and when it is given more than it can use it dumps it (you have to run to the toilet). The amount necessary to achieve this dumping will tell you how healthy or unheathy you are. If for example you have to run to the toilet having taken 15 grams then you are very healthy. If you can take 30 grams without running to the toilet then you are fighting something and need to give the body even more vitamin C.

I am not suggesting that you suddenly give yourself 30 grams in one go. I suggest that you start with one teaspoon in the morning and another at night. After a few days add a third teaspoon at lunchtime. After a few days you can add another teaspoon at an appropriate time. If for example you feel that you have Covid 19 symptoms (or even a flu) I would have no problem taking a teaspoon of powder every hour. The body will tell me when enough is enough.

For me Vitamin C is the platform for health. Not only will it extend life but it will also reduce pain and improve your immunity. So that’s the first step to becoming cancer free or living with your cancer in a state of stasis.

Read my other posts on vitamin C for further information about this miracle of healing. You can buy vitamin C powder from any on-line health shop.

Tomorrow I will post my second approach.

Immune therapy

There has long been an argument as to whether cancer is one disease or 2,000 (and rising). Could one approach cure all cancers or did you need 2,000+ separate cures. The report today suggests that one cure for all cancers could be round the corner. A special, never-before-seen T-cell has been found to attack cancer cells of many different cancers.
