Perhaps we should call these "unproven therapies" since
many of them are on the American Cancer Society's infamous black list.
Simply because something is "unproven" does not mean that it has been
"disproven." And if a therapy fits the following—
1. It works.
2. It's inexpensive.
3. Few, if any, negative side effects.
4. It's not patentable.
—odds are it will stay on the black list because no one is going to spend
a dime to prove its effectiveness. Medicine is a business. Cancer is a
business. The FDA is running a protection racket, protecting drug companies
and the AMA from anyone with an inexpensive and effective treatment for
money making diseases.
The following therapies are not guaranteed

Using an alternative therapy is
not holistic, it is simply one rung in the ladder

can be used as preventative measures, but, even a preventative measure can
help to fight an existing cancer, when used with a life style change and
other therapies. Work your program!

In the 1930s, somatids (Latin for "tiny bodies") were
discovered. They were called the basis of all life, and according to Gaston
Naessens, they are "probably the precursor of DNA, and undoubtedly capable
of transforming energy into matter." Hard to tell if they are really the
basis of all life, but they cannot be destroyed by 3000º temperatures or by
HCL (300 years after they dig you up, they will find live somatids), though
bombarding them with electrons will destroy them, thus they were never
discovered with the electron microscope. Gaston Naessens, who was chased out
of France for practicing medicine without a license, took an interest in the
life cycle of somatids. He developed the Somatoscope which was able to
observe the living organism with 160 Angstrom resolution which is 3 time
more powerful that the best electron microscopes at that time. He has
produced a video explaining the life cycle of the somatid. Spending over a
decade researching somatids, he has also discovered that the first sign
is when the somatids begin producing yeast, and veer off their normal three
stage life cycle to a sixteen stage life cycle.
He developed 714X, a camphor derivative, that returns somatids to their
normal life cycle and, according to his studies, reverses degenerative
diseases. Additionally, Gaston Naessens has developed ANA-10 from his
work in somatidian biology for use in AIDS, and clinical trials are
underway. You should pick up a copy of You Don't Have to Die—Unraveling
the AIDS Myth, by Leon Chaitow, ND, DO and James Stroheker. In it you
will read about Barry, who had full-blown AIDS, went to Naessens and was put
on a detoxication program, dietary changes, supplements and lifestyle
changes. He received 714-X injections and regained full health.
For more information, you can contact Cose, Inc. at 5270 Rue Fontain,
Rock Forest, Quebec, Canada J1N 2B6, phone (819) 564-7883. His video is
fascinating and well done, showing the life cycle of the somatids, and
printed materials will offer you a look at the results of his research as
well as an explanation of darkfield microscopy. The video costs $25.00, and
if you ask, they will send you a list of clinics using 714-X, but all of
them are outside of this country. Look to our neighbors to the North and
South for treatment with 714-X.
In the seventies, two researchers from Penn State
visited the Sao Paulo, Brazil area and discovered the local natives to
be extremely healthy with a very low rate of disease. The longevity rate
was disproportionately high with people living well over 100. Their
secret? It was a simple mushroom, they told the researchers, the ABM
mushroom (Agaricus Blazei Murill).
Subsequent studies over the next 25 years have shown the
ABM to stimulate the immune system and promote natural mechanisms to
battle infectious disease and cancers. ABM stimulates lymphocyte T-cell
and Helper T-cell production. The polysaccharide contained in ABM
stimulates production of interferon and interleukin that indirectly
function to destroy and prevent the proliferation of cancer cells.
Additionally, ABM turned out to be a very powerful antiviral agent
preventing viruses from entering tissues.
Normally, the polysaccharides found in fungus only
affect solid cancers, however the polysaccharide in ABM is effective
against Ehrich's ascites carcinoma, sigmoid colonic cancer, ovarian
cancer, breast cancer, lung cancer, and liver cancer as well as against
In Japan, ABM, in an injectable form, was found to
eliminate all cancerous tumors in 90% of the experimental mice.
Additionally, when the mice were fed ABM as a preventative and then
injected with a very powerful cancer causing agent (Sarcoma 180), 99.4%
of them showed no tumor growth. Conventional medicine has no preventive
The studies in Japan showed ABM to be 80% more effective
than the world's number one cancer drug, PSK. It contains much higher
levels of beta glucans than the other medicinal mushrooms (Maitake,
Shiitake, and Reishi) and stimulates NK (Natural Killer) cell activity.
It should be noted that the beta-glucans in these
mushrooms work best when taken with vitamin C.
The studies in Japan were so successful that today Japan
is now buying over 90% of the available ABM from Brazil.
The ABM mushroom is available in the US and you can

We must inform you that we've spoken with a naturopathic
physician who visited this "small" village and reported back to us that it's
not all that small, and happen so be situated just a few miles from a very
large, cosmopolitan city. We originally published the myths surrounding the
discovery of this mushroom by Japanese researchers; how there was an
overwhelming population of people over eighty and into their nineties; and
how certain diseases were non existent to this "small village." However, our
source tells us that, even though the research on the mushroom has to be
accepted, the myths surrounding the discovery of the ABM are probably
AHCC is a combination of mushroom extracts that is use
more than chemotherapy in Japan. We list information on AHCC in our section
(within these pages) on Mushrooms.
Now FOODS has the most inexpensive form of
AHHC we've found. I love NOW Food products because they are the best of the
cheapest (or cheapest of the best). One reason they are so inexpensive is
that they do NOT advertize and they have NO sales staff.
Aloe Vera is a wonderful detoxifier. Its
anti-cancer value has been demonstrated in study after study. It is also an
immunomodulator, meaning it will balance your immune system. I recently ran
into an individual who was having colon polyps removed every visit to his
proctologist. He began a regimen of 8oz of Aloe vera daily, and on his next
trip to the proctologist, they found no polyps.
There are many Aloe Vera products on the market, and the FDA hasn't
helped much by allowing companies to claim 100% Aloe Vera juice if they add
only one tablespoon of 100% Aloe Vera juice to a gallon of water.
Additionally, companies can claim their product to be cold processed if they
use HTST (High Temperature Short Time) processing. It took us years of
research to find
R PUR Aloe 18X Concentrate (whole leaf, cold processed, and powerful
stuff, yet good tasting―four ounces a
day is recommended).
In an article by Dr Bruce Eric Hedendal, D.C., Ph.D. he points out the
effects of orally consumed Aloe Vera juice: "Urinary indican values
decreased, indicating lowered bowel bacterial conversion of tryptophan and
possible improved protein digestion and absorption, as well as reduced bowel
putrefaction. This change, by itself, could help
prevent colon cancer
And finally, Dr. H. R. McDaniel, M.D., pathologist and researcher at the
Dallas-Fort Worth Medical Center, has said, "The use of Aloe Vera will be
the most important single step forward in the treatment of diseases in the
history of mankind."
In a study of 300 breast cancer patients on anticoagulants
[first reported to us in
Alternatives], one eighth of them died from breast cancer, but not
one developed metastases. Anticoagulants stop fibrin from forming. Fibrin (a
natural substance needed for blood to clot) has a pretty significant role in
the development of metastases: it coats maverick cells in the blood
stream, and thus protects them from the immune system, and it gives off a
signal to start angiogenesis, the growth of new blood vessels (which a
metastasis would need in order to root and grow).
Antineoplastons are a non toxic therapy developed by
Dr Stanislaw R Burzynski, MD,
PhD which are currently undergoing FDA monitored Phase II Trials. They
are slated to be approved by the FDA for certain cancers, and a pill form
has already been approved and is available through prescription.
We mention antioxidants here because some readers will
feel we've overlooked an important factor to preventing and fighting cancer.
Cancer begins in the cell. Cellular changes are brought about by toxins,
alcohol, smoke, malnutrition, dehydration, free radicals, and the aging
process. Antioxidants turn these free radicals and their precursors (the
toxins) into harmless chemicals. Your antioxidants are vitamins C, D, A, E,
and selenium. New antioxidants are being discovered (invented) all the time:
Pycnogenol, Amrit Kalash, Microhydrin just to name a few. Our most recent
discovery is Electrolyzed water (link
temporarily out of commission). Prevention is the key here, and
incidentally, antioxidants also play a large role in the prevention heart
disease and strokes.
Anvirzel is a patented extract from the
Nerium Oleander, a common house plant. It is very toxic, the plant, that is,
and if you insist on eating it, it will kill you. However, the extract
(Anvirzel) has been the twenty year study of a Dr Ozel from Turkey.
Dr Ozel foolishly
told everyone that his drug could cure cancer. It is pretty harmless. There
is no known overdose amount.
It is not as safe as water, but it's not nearly as dangerous as Vioxx. But
Dr Ozel really goofed, and foolishly told the authorities that his drug
could cure cancer, and that vanquished your chances getting this substance
right now; this substance that is as safer than Tylenol.
Dr Merrill Garnett, on the other
hand, after creating Poly-MVA,
registered it in Mexico as an antioxidant. Poly-MVA can be bought over the
counter. Anvirzel can only be gotten by flying down to Honduras and spending
a week at a hospital. And then, if you want it, you will pay 10 times its
cost of production (minimum) when
Poly-MVA isn't even sold at double its cost. Good move, Dr Ozel.
Anvirzel is a drug of the future
(you can't get it presently). It certainly doesn't fall into any categories
of present day chemotherapeutic drugs. According to our sources, studies
prove it is non toxic. Secondly, studies show it attacks tumors; studies in
bladder cancer, breast cancer, and prostate cancer show very verypositive results. Thirdly, it seems to boost the
patient's immune system (chemotherapy to date has destroyed immune systems
on a regular basis). And finally, Anvirzel has a role in uncovering the
cancer cells: it seems that cancer cells camouflage themselves and hide from
the immune cells. Anvirzel helps the immune system hunt them out, directing
the attack on cancer cells.
Anvirzel is made in Texas presently, but is available
only in Honduras. You can fly down to Honduras to get a six month supply,
costing under $9,000.00. The FDA has approved clinical trials at the
Cleveland Cancer Clinic,
and a report was expected to be issued in April, 2000. So far, we've heard
nothing. But look for changes here or ask for a copy of our online
newsletter and you'll be updated. It's free:
Yes, send me
Update: We have been
told by an insider that the Anvirzel in Honduras might not be the same
Anvirzel being tested in the US. However, this person is presently (March
2007) being tried in federal court for a number of schemes, including
hawking an ethanol extracted Oleander drug from Russia called Xenavex.
Now even though Anvirzel comes from a plant and has no
toxicity, it is considered a drug. If passed by the FDA (the gov't agency
that runs a protection racket for the pharmaceutical industry), expect an
over-the-counter version to be used as a preventative and immune system
Reports that slipped out in late
1999 showed that Anvirzel reversed AIDS, no matter what the phase of the
disease, arthritis, psoriasis, hepatitis C, and even diabetes in some cases.
Initially, Anvirzel was thought to work only on cancers found early,
however, very positive results have been found in people given just weeks to
live. To top this all off, Anvirzel seems to be the first cancer remedy to
show positive results for leiomyosarcoma, probably the deadliest of cancers.
Anvirzel also crosses the blood-brain barrier (like
Poly-MVA) and gives hope to people with brain
If given a chance, this could turn the world of
medicine upside down: sometimes cancer cannot be controlled or conquered
simply because the organs it has attacked are too far gone. Anvirzel reduces
pain, allowing the patient to die with dignity at home, with very little, if
any, pain medications. We received one story of a patient with advanced
pancreatic cancer, who the day before he died, ran a board meeting at his
office. He took his first pain medication one hour before dying. He also
wrote a letter to Ozelle Pharmaceuticals,
the company that makes Anvirzel, thanking them for the
extra time he was given and the quality of his last days.
Sadly, if the medical community
wants to bury this new drug, they can. It's March 2007, and nothing so far.
No news, is not good news. Drug companies are already trying to buy it out,
and probably bury it. Paranoia? Look at the history of

to Honduras and being treated there (you can return home the next day with
your supply to be administered by your
physician), here is the website: http://www.saludintegral.hn.
The battle goes on. In Mexico, some
clinics claim to have access to Anvirzel.

It is no longer amazing to discover something by accident.
Scientists do some of their best work in the dark, by suddenly stumbling
over something, only to find in the cold light of day, that what they
stumbled upon, was an amazing discovery (like penicillin, perhaps).
The wormwood plant has been around for years. It is an
annual that grows practically everywhere, but way back in history, it had
uses that somehow were forgotten.
In 1970, archeologists rediscovered the
phytochemical (plant chemical) Artemisinin inside a tomb dating back to 168
BC, for stored near the deceased were medicines and text explaining the
preparation and use of these medicine.
Artemisinin was used primarily in the treatment of malaria,
though it had been used to fight parasites and since it has some
anti-inflammatory properties, it was used for hemorrhoids.
Artemisinin reacts with a high concentration of iron
(ferrous compounds), something found in high concentrations in the malaria
parasite. When artemisinin meets up with this high iron concentration, a
chemical reaction occurs creating free radicals that attack cell membranes,
breaking them apart and killing them.
It is artemisinin’s affinity for iron
that places it in the spotlight for a brand new weapon against cancer.
Here is a little biochemistry for you: Iron is required for
cell division. What is it cancer cells do more than healthy cells? They
divide at a very high rate. So, in order to divide at this high rate, cancer
cells have to accumulate high concentrations of iron. In fact, the surface
of cancer cells have many more iron attracting receptors than on the surface
of a normal, healthy cell. Do you see where this is leading?
The Journal of Life Science (70 (2001): 49-56) reported on a
study out of the University of Washington, conducted by Drs Narenda Singh
and Henry Lai. So far, this is the most extensive study done in the US on
The study was conducted in a laboratory
in tissue samples (in vitro) as opposed to a study on animals or humans (in
vivo). Using a radiation resistant variety of breast cancer cells (that also
had a high propensity for accumulating iron) artemisinin proved itself to
have a 75% cancer kill rate after just 8 hours; and almost a 100% kill rate
in just 24 hours.
Artemisinin is effective against a
wide variety of cancers as shown in a series of successful experiments.
The most effective is leukemia and colon cancer. Intermediate activities
were also shown against melanoma, breast, ovarian, prostate, CNS and
renal cancer. Although artemisinin is insoluble in water, it is able to
cross the blood brain barrier (the water soluble artesunate is the
weakness among the derivates) and may be particularly suitable for
curing brain tumors, together with Poly-MVA.
According to Dr Rowen, MD in his newsletter Second Opinion,
a family of physicians in Vietnam had used artemisinin to treat cancer for
years. For over 400 patients treated in the past ten years, using dietary
and lifestyle changes and artemisinin, they realized a 50 to 60 percent
long-term remission rate. Artemisinin has proven itself to be nontoxic at
the required dosage level for long periods of time; and that no significant
toxicity in short-term use for malaria at high dose of up to 70 mg/kg per
day has been reported either.
Now the weird thing about this herb, the wormwood, is that
you can find the plant growing wild, pick it, take it to an herbalist, and
it might have no artemisinin in it: not all wormwood plants contain
artemisinin. So there’s no use buying the herb bulk.
When the wormwood herb contains
artemisinin, it is in one of three forms (some naturopaths use all three,
others a combination of two):
A water soluble form called artesunate which is the least
toxic and most active, yet has the shortest life in the body (being water
soluble it passes through),
Artemether is a lipid (or fat)
soluble form with the longest life in the body, but also the most toxic form
when used in high doses (which are seldom needed). Artemether can cross the
blood brain barrier.
Artemisinin is the active compound of the plant. It too
can cross the blood brain barrier and is very safe.
Because of artemisinin’s activity, because it attacks using
free radicals to destroy the cell membranes of cells carrying iron, it is
not recommended to take antioxidants with artemisinin. However, this doesn’t
mean that hydrogen peroxide therapy, ozone therapy, or any of the
oxygenation therapies cannot be used with artemisinin to help create an
environment in which cancer cells cannot live and begin to self destruct. In
fact, many other therapies are suggested when using artemisinin.
High doses are neurotoxic (bad for the brain) . People
experience trouble walking, problems with nerve and the spinal column and
pain response, respiration slows, gets depressed, and cardiac arrest in
large animals has been witnessed, but under very high doses.
In humans, so far only one person has had a serious side
effect, which was referred to as a "first-degree heart block." It is assumed
that doses up to 20,000mg per 70kg male is a safe dosage, although long-term
toxicity is not known at this time.
We do know the following:
Do not take artemisinin or any derivates within 20 days
of radiation therapy. Radiation spreads iron (leaks) to surrounding tissues.
If iron levels are low, supplementing iron for a few days
prior to starting this treatment is recommended.
Laboratory tests should be used to
monitor the progress of this therapy: Complete Blood Count, reticulocyte
count (will drop initially but comes back after a few weeks), liver
function, ferritin levels, Total Iron Binding Capacity, Erythrocyte
Sedimentation Rate, C reactive protein, and appropriate tumor markers. Tumor
markers might increase during the initial stages of tumor breakdown.
Therapeutic levels (dosages) for those with active cancers
can be 1,000 mgs per day, divided into 4 parts), while some physicians
recommend 1,600mg per day based upon a 100 pound female. It is a "cooling"
herb according to Traditional Chinese Medicine. If you find yourself
tingling (too cool) you might want to drop the dosage a bit.
Artemisinin should be taken with fatty foods. Using an
essential fatty acid (flax oil, cod liver oil, lecithin, wheat germ oil)
will help absorption, as will CLA.
Artemisinin is not considered a
"stand-alone" cancer cure, but part of an overall, aggressive, anti-cancer
program. High doses of pancreatic enzymes (on an empty stomach), CoQ10
supplementation, detoxication programs and lab work should all be employed
when using artemisinin.

‘Asparagus For Cancer’
published in Cancer News Journal, Dec 1979, United Kingdom.
I am a biochemist, and have specialised in the
relation of diet to health for over 50 years. Several years ago, I learned
of the discovery of Richard R. Vensal, D.D.S. that asparagus might cure
Since then, I have
worked with him on his project, and we have accumulated a number of
favorable case histories.
Here are a few examples.
Case No. 1, man with an almost hopeless case of Hodgkin's disease (cancer of
the lymph glands) who was completely incapacitated. Within 1 year of
starting the asparagus therapy, his doctors were unable to detect any signs
of cancer, and he was back on a schedule of strenuous exercise.
Case No. 2, a successful businessman, 68 years old, who suffered from cancer
of the bladder for 16 years. After years of medical treatments, including
radiation without improvement, he went on asparagus. Within 3 months,
examinations revealed that his bladder tumour had disappeared and that his
kidneys were normal.
Case No. 3, a man who had lung cancer. On March 5th 1971 he was put on the
operating table where they found lung cancer so widely spread that it was
inoperable. The surgeon sewed him up and declared his case hopeless. On
April 5th he heard about the asparagus therapy and immediately started
taking it. By August, x-ray pictures revealed that all signs of the cancer
had disappeared. He is back at his regular business routine.
Case No. 4, a woman who was troubled for a number of years with skin cancer.
She finally developed different skin cancers which were diagnosed by a skin
specialist as advanced. Within 3 months after starting on asparagus, her
skin specialist said that her skin looked fine and no more skin lesions.
This woman reported that the asparagus therapy also cured her kidney
disease, which started in 1949. She had over 10 operations for kidney
stones, and was receiving government disability payments for an inoperable,
terminal, kidney condition. She attributes the cure of this kidney trouble
entirely to the asparagus.
I was not
surprised at this result, as The Elements of Materia Medica, edited in 1854
by a Professor at the University of Pennsylvania, stated that asparagus was
used as a popular remedy for kidney stones. He even referred to experiments,
in 1739, on the power of asparagus in dissolving stones. [See also
way to detox
for the Appalachian Kidney
We would have other case histories but the medical
establishment has interfered with our obtaining some of the records. I am
therefore appealing to readers to spread this good news and help us to
gather a large number of case histories that will overwhelm the medical
skeptics about this unbelievably simple and natural remedy.
For the treatment, asparagus should be cooked before
using, and therefore canned asparagus is just as good as fresh. I have
corresponded with the two leading canners of asparagus, Giant Giant and
Stokely, and I am satisfied that these brands contain no pesticides or
Place the cooked asparagus in a blender and
liquefy to make a puree, and store in the refrigerator. Give the patient 4
full tablespoons twice daily, morning and evening.
Patients usually show some improvement in from 2-4
weeks. It can be diluted with water and used as a cold or hot drink. This
suggested dosage is based on present experience, but certainly larger
amounts can do no harm and may be needed in some cases.
As a biochemist I am convinced of
the old saying that ‘what cures can prevent.’
Based on this theory, my wife and I have been using asparagus puree as a
beverage with our meals. We take 2 tablesp. diluted in water to suit our
taste with breakfast and with dinner. I take mine hot and my wife prefers
hers cold. For years we have made it a practice to have blood surveys taken
as part of our regular checkups.
what the heck ever happened to just eating food? Why must we create a puree
beverage? Why can't we just open a can of asparagus and eat some daily? I
guess I agree with Voltaire that common sense really isn't all that common.]
The last blood survey, taken by a medical doctor who specialises in the
nutritional approach to health, showed substantial improvements in all
categories over the last one, and we can attribute these improvements to
nothing but the asparagus drink.
As a biochemist, I have made an extensive
study of all aspects of cancer, and all of the proposed cures. As a result,
I am convinced that asparagus fits in better with the latest theories about
cancer. Asparagus contains a good supply of protein called histones, which
are believed to be active in controlling cell growth. For that reason, I
believe asparagus can be said to contain a substance that I call cell growth
normaliser. That accounts for its action on cancer and in acting as a
general body tonic.
In any event, regardless of theory, asparagus
used as we suggest, is a harmless substance. The FDA cannot prevent you from
using it and it may do you much good.
"Asparagus is one
of nature's most perfect foods. Asparagus are poor
in calories and loaded with vitamins and minerals.
Asparagus also contains the phyto-chemical
glutathione, which has antioxidant and
According to the
National Cancer Institute, asparagus is the highest
tested food containing glutathione, one of the
body's most potent cancer fighters. Additionally,
asparagus is high in rutin, which is valuable in
strengthening the blood vessels. Avocado and walnuts
are also particularly rich in dietary sources of
Glutathione is a
small protein composed of three amino acids;
cysteine, glutamic acid, and glycine. Glutathione is
involved in detoxification. It binds to fat-soluble
toxins, such as heavy metals, solvents, and
pesticides, and transforms them into a water-soluble
form that can be excreted in urine."
Editor's Note: I want to thank all
those who wrote to me who took time to research this subject and help us
finally find the truth. There are fewer than seven libraries in America that
have collected all of the Cancer News Journals, since it is not a
scholarly journal, but rather one put together by patients and caretakers
and others with connections/interests in cancer, and was circulated in the
A bolus is like a suppository, used either vaginally or
anally. Dr Schulze has created a bolus that can be made into suppositories
by mixing the materials and placing them into the freezer. He recommends
them (first you must cleanse your colon and liver, so see the article on "
House") for cervical, uterine, ovarian, colon
cancer, and any lower abdominal cancers (and for cysts), though the herbs
are cleansing and contain anti-tumor properties, and absorbed anally they
can help fight many cancers. This formula has proven itself over and over
again for cervical dysplasia (it would be extremely productive to fight
dysplasia with a mixture of this bolus and an immunomodulator or immuno
stimulant such as MGN-3 or
Agaricus mushrooms, or Aloe Vera (see
Your Immune System - The Rest of the Story).
He recommends inserting the bolus at night, and keeping it inside as long
as possible (two days if administered into the cervix). For cervical
problems, try to keep it in all the next day, two days would be best, and in
the evening, you should douche. His favorite douche is a pint of water with
a couple of tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon or lime juice, or a couple of
tablespoons of raw organic apple cider vinegar. However, many people find
this formula to be drying, and Dr Christopher (Dr Schulze's mentor)
recommends Yellow Dock Tea (which can be ordered from The Herb Finder:
www.theherbfinder.com). Do this for six days; rest on the seventh. Keep
in mind you might have to do this for a period of six weeks to six months.
Herbal remedies, for the most part, take time to work.
Update: The following was
discovered after a nerve-wracking search of my notes (over 9-years-old)
stashed away in my back room, and gathered from interviews with Dr Schulze.
Dr Schulze's bolus: Equal parts of Squaw Vine herb, Slippery Elm Bark,
Goldenseal root, Yellow Dock root, Comfrey root, Marshmallow root, Chickweed
herb, Mullein leaf all of these
powered (using a coffee grinder, not a blender for they heat up the herbs,
or a mortar and pestle and a little elbow grease). This is the original
formula, however, to potentiate these ingredients (make them work even
better, as well as add a little extra kick to them) you may add garlic bulb,
cayenne pepper, and Tea Tree oil to the herbs. Do not be afraid of the
cayenne pepper, it is actually soothing and is not caustic (unless you find
an open sore). Now, melt some cocoa butter and mix it all up in your hands
and shape it into something that looks close to your pointing finger. You
can store these in the freezer for a long period. (This
recipe was originally Dr Christopher's.)
If you cannot find these herbs local (only wild crafted or organically
grown herbs will ever be recommended by us), one place to contact is Pacific
Botanicals in Oregon, 541-479-7777.
Latest Update: Here is Dr Schulze's
latest recipe (actually it's Dr Christopher's recipe):
16 oz coconut oil
2 oz tea tree oil
2 oz goldenseal root finely powdered
2 oz yellow dock root finely powdered
Optional: poke root (finely powdered), cayenne pepper, and crushed garlic.
Blend ingredients well, and leave at room temperature (the coconut oil
will solidify) and you can then form your bolus and store it in the
This is much cheaper than Shark Cartilage and is being
presently studied here in America with, ostensibly, very good results.

Cancell was designed in a scientist's dream only a
research scientist could possibly dream. A body has a cancer. The cancer is
hot. It grows so fast, requires so much energy, the cool body is overworked
struggling to feed the cancer. Suddenly a substance is introduced into the
body. The substance has one objective, to lower the overall energy of the
body. As the process begins, the cancer starts to starve, it bubbles, breaks
up, and melts from starvation. The cancer dies from energy starvation and is
cleaned up by the immune system.
The dream became a reality, at least according to 20,000 people who claim
Cancell has saved their lives. In 1936 James Sheridan had been working as a
biochemist for Dow Chemical. He began experimenting with substances that
could manipulate the energies in the body, and when he discovered he could
manipulate them, he got serious. By 1947, without Dow's blessings or
support, he developed a substance that would cure about 38% of the cancer
cases he had tried it on. By 1983, he had something that was approximately
80% effective. He had been at it for 47 years.
James Sheridan and his substance have been pushed around by the FDA, the
NCI, and the ACS so much that in 1984 he finally gave up. Since then, Edward
J. Sopcak has taken over. From his home, he has made up over 30,000 bottles
of Cancell and has shipped them to people in need all over the country, for
not one cent.
We hesitate to mention the story of Cancell, because a court injunction
has closed down Mr Sopcak's efforts: he may not distribute in any manner
this absolutely harmless substance.

Cansema is an escharotic (its original form, though below you
can see they've since developed internal versions), applied topically. According
to the developers, is supposed to be selective in its action. If you place it on
healthy skin, it might "warm" up a bit, the skin can turn pink and become mildly
irritated, but that’s all. If you place it on a malignant lesion, then it goes
to work. They even say that people buy it and apply it to their moles to find
out if they are malignant. This is a silly way to get a diagnosis, but if it
works, what the heck.
The people at Alpha Omega Labs (who produce Cansema) had the
audacity to claim that every empirical case study to date has shown that Cansema
has removed successfully every malignant carcinoma, adenocarcinoma (breast
cancer), and even melanoma to which it has been applied. If it doesn’t work for
you, they even give you back your money. No drug company has ever offered to do
The people at Alpha Omega Labs had been working with
physicians from around the world for year, and producing some very interesting
products including tinctures of the ABM Mushroom
and formulas using Graviola. They are
Note also that they had created three internal formulas: Tonic
I, Tonic III, and Cansema Capsules. The Tonic III contains: Aloe vera (as a base
medium), bioenergized extracts of the following cancerolytic [cancer killing]
botanicals: graviola (Annona muricata) from the Amazonia, Andrographis
paniculata, neem (Azadirachta indica A. Jus), chaparral (Larrea mexicata), and
hydronium solution to enhance and preserve contents. Contains no alcohol or
The capsules and Tonic I contain: chaparral, galangla, rhubarb
root, burdock, buckthorn, red clover, purple lapacho, zinc glutomate / zinc
chloride, ascorbal palmitate. You might recognize some of these from the Hoxsey
and ESSIAC formulas. Chaparral is one of the ingredients in the Jason Winters
Tea. As science plods on, despite the Pharmaceutical Industry's wishes that all
herbs were banned and the American Cancer Society's desire to steer you toward
the slash, burn, and poison therapies, we are discovering more and more the
anti-tumor effects of our ancient herbs.
Chaparral has been on the FDA's hit
list for some 20 years now. They almost got it entirely removed from the market
place. Then Chemex Pharmaceuticals applied for and received from the FDA drug
status for their concoction to cure skin cancer. It's active ingredient? NDGA or
nordihydroguauretic acid which comes from the Chaparral plant, a very potent
antioxidant. It has been used by Natives of North America for centuries as a
blood cleanser and cancer cure.
This is a recipe for a black paste very similar
to the cansema and is a preferred paste for melanoma and all suspect skin cancer
like lesions. This paste also has worked well for all manner of cancers provided
that they have become exposed to or close to the surface of the skin.
1/2 cup powdered Blood Root (Sanguinaria Canadensis)
1/2 cup Zinc Chloride, crystals or
1/2 cup common white flour
1 1/2 cup warm water
100ml Chaparral extract or 100gm of powdered Chaparral (Larrea mexicana)
Pre-mix all but the water, thoroughly, before adding to
the water. Using a stainless steel double boiler. Put in water, then stir in the
other ingredients. Stir in well using a wooden spoon. Cook for thirty minutes
over boiling water, stirring constantly. Application is much the same as
cansema. Apply a thin layer (2-3mm) of the paste over the affected area and
cover for 24 hours. Then remove the covering but do not disturb the lesion at
all, do not attempt to pull the cancer out at any time, it should fall out in 10
days or so. Some people with sensitive skin put Vaseline (however we recommend
coconut oil or Healon PF™)
around the cancer so that the paste does not irritate the skin.

knows the EXACT formulas for Cansema, both the external and internal formulas,
please send them to us so that we may publish it here.

We often get letters from people telling us how this worked and that
didn't work, however, with Cansema, we have received just one letter telling us
that it did not work for the user. Please, we'd like to hear from you.Top

hate to give false hope to anyone, however, we must tell you that, according
to Morton Walker, DPM, in an article entitled, "The Carnivora Cure for
Cancer, AIDS and Other Pathologies" published in Immune Perspectives,
Summer 1994: "[The Carnivora extract] is highly effective for the total
elimination of the HIV virus in vivo from human blood and may be
considered a cure for the autoimmune deficiency syndrome AIDS."
In 1988, the active component of Carnivora, plumbagin, was isolated. It has
proven itself to be, in vivo and in vitro (in live subjects
and in the laboratory), a powerful immuno-stimulant. Since 1981, over 2000
patients have been treated with Carnivora, including President Reagan.
(Follow physicians and the rich when they get cancer; they usually avoid, at
all costs, chemotherapy.)
Studies have shown it to reduce tumor weight with no side effects, and in
some cases there have been complete remission. Carnivora is non-toxic and
non-mutagenic (does not cause cellular mutations).
One patient who used Carnivora extract was Ronald Asti, a person with
AIDS who was suffering from ARC (AIDS-related complex). He traveled to
Germany for treatment, and returned four months later, completely free of
AIDS, his blood showing no signs of the HIV-1 antigen after multiple tests.

This was a favorite of Edgar Cayce (see the article
Breast Cancer for a short biography on Edgar
Cayce). For tumors near the surface, he consistently recommended them. It
was thought by many to pull the tumors from the body, however, clinical
research also shows increased T-cell, NK (natural killer cells), and
macrophage activity. One of the best books we can recommend for castor oil
packs (besides anything by Edgar Cayce) is by Dr Dana Myatt, MD, called A
Physician's Diary. The book, as well as two videos of hers, are
available from the ARE® Press, and you can reach them at PO Box 656,
Virginia Beach, VA 23451, (757) 428-3588. The ARE® Press publishes books and
video and audio cassettes of Edgar Cayce's work, as well as those who use
his methods. A subscription will get you free books quarterly, as well as
catalogs of their latest publications.
At nearly every health foods store we've visited, we found castor oil and
wool or cotton flannel pads. The method of using them is quite simple.
Spread out the pad and soak it with castor oil. Place it over the infected
area (Cayce also recommends placing it over the liver for liver stimulation)
and then wrap yourself with an oilcloth to avoid getting the oil all over
everything. Place a heating pad (or hot water bottle) over it, and sit back
for an hour and watch a comedy on TV. Some recommend an hour minimum, others
three hours. You can store your oily pad in a plastic bag, and you need not
store it in the refrigerator for castor oil is one of the most stable oils
As a supplement, cayenne pepper has been used for
years for cardiovascular support. It cleans the blood and stimulates the
entire system. Dr Christopher, one of the leaders in American Herbal
medicine, often called Dr Cayenne, used it to help cure almost every malady
that appeared in his office. For stomach ulcers, he recommended one teaspoon
of cayenne pepper in a glass of water three times a day, and cured many a
stomach ulcer. For those of you who balk at drinking really hot cayenne
pepper, you may take the capsules, but always with food.
However, for a heart attack, the capsules will not work: Dr Christopher
witnessed time and time again that one cup of hot cayenne pepper will stop a
heart attack in three minutes or less. A good tincture of cayenne (or drops
of some of your stronger hot sauce) will also work. Dr Schulze recommends
carrying a cayenne tincture with you at all times in the glove compartment
of your car. It might be the only first aid you need.
In a lecture by Dr Richard Shulze, master herbalist, we
learned the following: A man had an inoperable brain tumor and told that he
might have a 5% chance of survival with chemotherapy. He went home, did a
colon/liver detox and started a regimen of ten cups per day of cayenne
pepper tea. In three months he returned to his doctor and his x-rays showed a
dried up, dead tumor in his head. Dr Shulze explains this cure thusly: Cayenne
pepper contains many wonderful phytochemicals, vitamins, and minerals. It cleans
the blood allowing hormonal signals to make their way unimpeded through your
system, thus the enhanced immune response. In countries that have some very hot
cuisine, you find significantly lower cancer and heart disease rates.
Commonly used by Asians as part of their diet, the
Chinese Bitter Melon (Momordica charantia) is used regularly to clean the
blood. In addition to expressing antiviral and anti-tumor effects, the
Chinese Bitter Melon exhibits Anti-HIV effects, inhibiting, in the
laboratory, infected macrophages and T cells, as well as cell infection. It
seems that the proteins in Chinese Bitter Melon (alpha- and beta-momocharin,
and MAP-30) deactivate the ribosome function in HIV-infected cells, stop
protein synthesis and kill cells that are infected. [Chaitow, Leon, ND, DO,

As the child of a physician/surgeon, I grew up
believing that chiropractic care was synonymous with quackery. The medical
profession once tried to defame chiropractors into oblivion, but wound up in
the Supreme Court where they were told to cease and desist their
Chiropractic care goes back to ancient China. It even predates
acupuncture, for as the Chinese knew, you cannot work on the meridians if
the nerves are not right. The impact of a perfectly tuned nervous system on
the immune system, for a long time, was only a theory. Yet, study after
study show that people who receive chiropractic care have a greater
immuno-competence than those who do not.
A study conducted in 1975 by Ronald Pero, PhD, showed that individuals
with spinal cord injuries were at a greater risk of developing cancer than
those with no injuries. He theorized that the nervous system was responsible
for regulating and sending messages between parts of the endocrine
(glandular) system. So in 1986 he collaborated with Joseph Flesia, DC to
measure immuno-competence in individuals who regularly saw a chiropractor
and those who did not. The study did not take into consideration variations
in diet, though Pero admitted that there was no research thus far that could
account for the variance they discovered. And what a variance: people under
chiropractic care had a 200% greater immuno-competence than others. [East
West, November 1989]
Can chiropractic care help your body heal cancer? In your holistic
approach to cancer, chiropractic care is one of the therapies you might wish
to explore because it is essential to have a healthy spinal column to keep
your immune system functioning at its peak.
If the story of clodronate does not anger you,
you are not paying attention.
We mentioned clodronate in our second edition of the
Wellness Directory of Minnesota™, but held off listing it here for the
longest time. Why? Because we cannot get it in America. It is not an
alternative, a natural substance, or an herb. It is a drug. One of the few
drugs that actually heals something, rather than treat symptoms.
It is nearly 20 years old and is used to fight and reverse
osteoporosis. Studies from Europe show it can reverse bone loss and, when
mixed with calcium, it will significantly increase lumbar bone density.
Now, if you are paying attention, a majority of breast
cancer deaths occur after the cancer has metastasized (spread) to the
The Food and Drug Administration's
suppression of clodronate may have caused the premature or needless
death of about 30,000 American women each year, based on the Aug. 6,
1998, New England Journal of Medicine study. Since clodronate could
have been made available 15 years ago, about 517,000 American breast
cancer victims were forced to suffer agonizing bone metastasis, and
a total of 450,000 women probably died prematurely because the FDA
aggressively denied this drug to cancer patients.
Clodronate is cheap. It is effective. It has minimal side
effects. It does not kill cancer cells. It is
used as an adjunct to whatever therapy you are using for the single purpose
of preventing bone metastases. It is outlawed in America, though there are
some expensive rip-offs that the FDA is pushing (protecting American
business interests) that are not as safe and not as effective as clodronate.
Here are some studies of its effectiveness:
1988: breast cancer patients with multiple bone metastasis
treated with clodronate experienced fewer fractures and less hypercalcemia,
with a higher survival rate and no side effects. [Biomed. Pharmacother.
(France), 42/2 (111-1160]
1987: two studies showed that oral clodronate successfully
reduced a mean serum calcium concentration in 22 our of 25 patients with
various types of malignant tumors, and that clodronate is a valuable
clinical tool in the management of patients with malignancy-associated
hypercalcemia. [Acta. med. Scand. (Sweden), 221/5 (489-494)]
1985: clodronate given to patients with episodes of
hypercalcemia and osteolysis due to carcinoma reduced serum calcium in 14 of
17 episodes and bone resorption in all patients. [Br. J. Cancer (England),
1984: published in both France and the US, this study
concluded that "Clodronate is very effective against osteoclasts," and
"Clodronate may be a useful adjuvant in managing metastatic bone disease." [Presse
Med. 13/8, 479-482); New England Journal of Medicine, 308/25
According to the Life
Extension Foundation, the standard dose for treating cancer is 800 mg of
clodronate taken twice daily, though twice this dosage has been used safely.
Breast cancer patients might want to consider a 3 - 5 year regimen on
clodronate therapy. Blood tests to measure serum calcium levels and kidney
function should be done 10 days after initiating clodronate therapy and
every one to two months thereafter. In a small minority of patients,
clodronate will cause too much calcium to be pulled from the blood to the
bone. If you suffer from severe renal insufficiency (a kidney disorder
requiring dialysis) you should not use clodronate, nor should you use
clodronate if you are pregnant.
To find out where to obtain clodronate, write to the
International Society for Free Choice 9 Dubnoc Street 64368 Tel Aviv, Israel
and ask for their free directory of off-shore companies that will get you
"unapproved" drugs. (We wrote but not nothing. If you succeed, share the

Dr William Coley, around the turn of the
century, lost a patient to sarcoma (a soft tissue cancer) and was upset
enough to begin research on similar cancers. He soon began to notice a
repetitive scenario in which recovery of sarcoma followed a serious
After experimentation, he developed a serum that came to be known as
Coley's Toxins: a mixture of heat-killed bacteria. He treated 312 inoperable
cancer patients with his vaccine and 124 were brought into complete
remission. Subsequent studies showed a five-year survival rate of 65%
percent of inoperable breast cancer, 67% Hodgkin's disease, and 84% of giant
cell bone tumors.
Despite these findings, the AMA denounced Coley's Toxins and the vaccine
was placed on the American Cancer Society's "Unproven Methods" blacklist.
Interestingly enough, it was soon taken off the list as a research team at
the Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center began studying methods similar to Coley's.
Update: One maker of Coley's Toxins can be found here:
www.MBVax.com. There is a trial currently
being conducted on Coley's Toxins in the Bahamas:
Do not expect this drug to be on the market soon, but it's
an amazing discovery. Contortrostatin is a protein extracted from the venom
of the Southern Copperhead, a poisonous snake. At the University of Southern
California, one study showed that it slowed the growth of tumors in mice
implanted with human breast cancer cells by up to 70%. It does not kill
cancer cells, but stops their growth. The really excellent news is that it
prevented metastases (the spread of cancer) 100% of the time. Like the new
antiangiogenesis drugs in the news lately (early 1998), Contortrostatin too
stops the growth of new blood vessels, vessels that is needed for the growth
and spread of cancer.
C-Statin is another of the antiangiogenesis drugs (stops
the growth of new blood vessels), however, it is registered as a food
supplement. It was developed by Neil Riordan, who now runs the
Immuno-Technologies Cancer Clinic in the Bahamas.
C-Statin has an interesting history.
In 1994 a woman walked into a cancer clinic in Wichita, Kansas
(run by Ne
il's father) wanting to tell her story.
She was a 57 year-old who had had a diagnosis of stage 3C ovarian cancer. Her
mother had died of ovarian cancer and when her oncologist said that she had
possibly a year and a half left if she did chemo, she remembered her mother not
doing very well on chemo and she wanted to go another route. So she found
herself a shaman/healer who said, "Here, take this tincture from this plant."
She took it for 2 years as was declared cancer free. Her doctor, of course,
claimed it to be an "act of God." She was still taking her "convolvulus
tincture," seven years after her initial diagnosis and she just wanted to tell
her story to someone.
The plant turned out to be the Convolvulus Arvensis, or Field
Bindweed. It grows all over America and is considered a pest.
Neil began testing this plant, first by putting it on cancer
specimens to determine if it was onco-toxic (toxic to the cancer). It was not.
Then he tested it to see if it had any immunostimulant properties; perhaps it
stimulated the immune system to kick into high gear and attack the cancer. He
did find that it was immunosupportive, but not to any degree that would account
for this lady's dramatic results. Next he tested it to see if it stopped the
growth of new blood vessels. and bingo, that was it.
Interestingly enough, there are antiangiogenesis chemicals in
our bodies already. Let's face it, after we are fully grown, we don't need new
blood vessels continually growing in our bodies, so these chemicals kick in to
stop their growth. We have still other chemicals in our body to kick in the
growth of new blood vessels in case we should need them, as in the case of an
injury or a pregnancy.
C-Statin is just one of Neil's patented formulas. It comes
from the isolated PGMs (proteoglycan molecules) of the Bind Weed that are
responsible for this action. It is sold only to healthcare professionals,
though, as stated previously, it is registered as a food supplement. It is one
of the therapies offered at the
C-Statin can be taken orally, as we see from this lady's
testimonial, but it is usually administered intravenously for the best results.
Also, it should be noted that not all tumors flourish by the growth of new blood
vessels thus, at the Aidan Clinic, each patient gets therapy designed
specifically for that person.
D-limonene is a terpene, a compound found in
plants. The best source of d-limonene is the oil from orange peels.
Researchers at the University of Wisconsin found that when d-limonene was
added to the diets of rats who had developed tumors, 90% of them had their
tumors disappear completely. In a related study, animals that were given
d-limonene one hour before being exposed to known carcinogens, were
protected from the effects of the carcinogens at a highly significant rate.
In rats, large doses of d-limonene produce kidney problems, but in dogs,
there were no side effects.
D-limonene has yet to be tested on humans, and since very little of the
two billion spent annually on cancer research ever makes it to clinical
studies, it might never be tested on humans to determine dosages and
toxicity levels, if there are any.
In the meanwhile, you can do what most juice experts have been saying for
years: juice the orange and the peel together—just make sure your oranges
are organically grown. [Alternatives, September 1991; 4: 3]
DMSO (Dimethyl Sulfoxide), is an
anti-inflammatory that has been shown clinically to relieve pain (is used
extensively by arthritis sufferers), increases circulation, repairs tissue
damage, stops the growth of bacteria and fungi, soothes burns, enlarges
small blood vessels, softens scar tissue, and fights degenerative diseases.
DMSO is an FDA approved treatment for interstitial cystitis (bladder
inflammation). DMSO is a gentle but powerful healing substance which is also
very effective and allowed as an off label application in the treatment of
most types of cancers without the toxic effects of other chemo and radiation
methods. (www.complecare.com; their
clinic in Oklahoma uses DMSO for cancer with very good success rates.)
Because it is an "off label" application, your insurance will not pay for
it and most cancer treatment centers do not use it.
In tests on rats with cancer, DMSO was mixed with hematoxylon, and
because the admixture was dyed, they were able to show that it had an
affinity for the tumors only. A lymphosarcoma is surrounded by a protoplasm
intended to feed the tumor, and it was discovered that the DMSO-hematoxylon
mixture wiped out this protoplasm thus starving the tumor.
DMSO aids in the penetration of any substance to which it is added.
for much more than cancer, and he reports his patients
respond quite well. [Donsbach, Kurt, DC, ND, PhD. Wholistic Cancer Therapy.
San Diego: The Rockland Corporation, 1993] Donsbach feels that DMSO assists all
the other therapies and agents he employs, and it is one therapy he administers
to everyone with cancer: DMSO and hydrogen peroxide infusions. He also mentions
a study at New York's Mount Sinai Hospital where mice with leukemia were
injected with DMSO and the leukemic cells began for function normally.
DMSO is a byproduct of the the wood industry and has been used as a
commercial solvent since 1953. The automotive industry uses it to clean
engine parts. Medicine uses it to preserve organs for transplants (and for
Maya Muir, More than 40,000 articles have been published on the

What the FDA would have us focus on we found in the book DMSO—Nature's

DMSO caused dogs to go blind. The FDA jumped on this and stopped its use in
humans. Later it was discovered that only in dogs does it cause blindness,
and after years and years of foot dragging, it can now be used by physicians

Found in red raspberries, strawberries, blue berries, and
certain nuts, ellagic acid is a proven anti-carcinogen, anti-mutagen, and
anticancer initiator, as well as containing anti-bacterial and anti-viral
properties. Raspberries are a prime source of ellagitannins and when digested,
produce the naturally-occurring phytochemical, ellagic acid.
The Meeker red raspberry is the best source of ellagic
acid followed by Chilliwack and Willamette.
Ellagic acid acts as a scavenger to
"bind" cancer-causing chemicals, making them inactive. It inhibits the
ability of other chemicals to cause mutations in bacteria. In addition,
ellagic acid from red raspberries prevents binding of carcinogens to
DNA, and reduces the incidence of cancer in cultured human cells exposed
The Hollings Cancer
Institute at the U of South Carolina recently finished (1999) nine years
of study showing that ellagic acid:
stops cancer cells from dividing in 48 hours

cases of breast, pancreas, esophageal, skin, colon and prostate cancers
prevents the destruction of the p53 gene that leads to

Raspberries contain the highest amounts of ellagic acid, and
