How Integrative Physicians Put Cancer in Remission
Targeted Low-Dose Chemotherapy and Other Nonconventional Approaches Can Save Your Life
By Burton Goldberg, The Voice of Alternative Medicine
This is the third part in a series of articles in which I'm going to reveal proof that the government is lying to you about many areas of your health—and that of your children. I'm going to show you exactly what you should do to protect the health of yourself and your loved ones. We need to start a health revolution. In these articles I'm going to show you why and how.
"The end of the human race will be that it will eventually die of civilization."—Ralph Waldo Emerson
What if I proved to you that cancer can be put into remission without relying exclusively on high-dose standard chemotherapy or radiation?
In this article, I'm going to show you what respected integrative physicians are doing to increase the chance that cancer will go into remission. They're wiping out this dreaded disease and they're doing it without using toxic methods to poison cancer patients. Instead, they're using low-dose, targeted chemotherapy at 5% to 10% of the standard dose along with other methods (more on this later).
In the previous article of this series I discussed the causes of cancer that the government and pharmaceutical companies don't want you to know about. In this article, I'm going to talk about remarkably successful and non-toxic cancer treatments that Big Pharma and its government allies don't want you to know exist.
Doctors are heroic in the emergency room where they have saved countless lives. They sew you up, they take away your pain, they keep you alive, but in degenerative disease they become legalized drug pushers. The Death By Medicine study showed that conventional medicine causes 783,936 deaths every year in the United States. That makes mainstream medicine the number one killer, surpassing cancer and heart disease.
Worldwide, people spent $100 billion on cancer medicines in 2014. $100 billion! That's up from $75 billion five years earlier. This is insanity! Nixon's war on cancer failed because agencies like the National Cancer Institute and the FDA are ignoring the causes of cancer and the non-toxic treatments. Nixon's war on cancer didn't fail because of lack of money. It failed because of corruption. Meanwhile, people are dying of cancer while the drug companies profit. And it doesn't have to be this way. There are many affordable, integrative treatments—such as the low-dose, targeted chemo I mentioned above—that can address every cause of your cancer in a safe, non-toxic way.
I can tell you the truth because I'm not a medical practitioner with any economic stake in this issue. I do consult with cancer patients, but at the age of 89, I do this because seeing my clients get well is my legacy before I die, not because I'm going to get rich off of it. I have studied alternative medicine for 45 years, have an honorary doctorate in humanities from Capital University, and through my publications and public appearances over many years I have become known as "The Voice of Alternative Medicine." I was also called to testify about integrative oncology before the United States House of Representatives Committee on Government Reform. You can read my Congressional testimony here.
The reason why you won't hear the truth from your mainstream doctor is because the government is overrun with corruption. President Roosevelt created the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to protect the people of this country. Lincoln created the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Nixon created the EPA for the same reason. Our government has become so corrupt that these same agencies that were created to protect you are now protecting industry instead. There is a cancer cabal in this country that prevents cancer patients from learning about treatments that can save their lives.
As I've urged everyone who has read part 1 and part 2 of this article series, I am urging you now: We need to start a health revolution. If we don't, we're going to go the way of ancient Rome. We need to show the world that cancer can be put into remission without toxic high-dose chemo.
In this article, I'm going to show you exactly how integrative physicians accomplish this and what you can do help spread the word. As you read this article, you can go as deep as you want by clicking on the links to discover more about each topic or treatment I present.
The Bittersweet Truth
We invented cell phones, smart phones, and ipads. We can go to the moon, but we can't cure cancer? It's ridiculous.
Let's face it: you don't have to be smart to be a doctor. You just need to have a good memory. That's my only explanation for why oncologists do something illogical. They give patients PET scans, an imaging test that uses a radioactive tracer to check for disease in the body. The tracer is a radioactive drug called Fluoro Deoxyglucose—FDG for short—which is glucose (sugar) combined with a short-lived radioisotope (a radioactive compound). The reason why glucose is used in a PET scan is because cancer cells use 29 times more glucose than normal cells. So cancer cells light up brightly on the PET image.
These same oncologists who use glucose (sugar) in a PET scan because they know cancer cells feed off glucose give their cancer patients candy after a chemotherapy treatment. That's like walking into a forest where a wildfire is burning and pouring lighter fluid on the trees.
The Mayo Clinic claims that it's a myth that cancer cells grow faster on sugar and that it's perfectly okay to eat moderate amounts of sugar when you have cancer. This again is a lie that's not based on research. If what the Mayo Clinic is saying is true, then why would oncologists use sugar as a Trojan horse in the PET scans to carry the radiologic molecule into the cancer cell?
In reality, no doctor knows exactly how much sugar it will take to tip your scales in favor of disease. If you are predisposed to cancer, even a small amount every day could trigger tumor development.
In this country, mainstream doctors don't ask what causes cancer. They use a one-size fits all approach and give every cancer patient toxic doses of chemotherapy and radiation. In integrative medicine, some are smarter. These physicians determine what's causing cancer in each individual patient and address those causes. It's a personalized approach. So one size shoe does not fit all.
There are actually 33 contributing factors to the DNA mutations that lead to cancer and integrative physicians do the detective work to determine which of these causes may be contribute to cancer in each individual patient. I talked about some of them in the last article in this series, which you can read here. You can also read more about those causes when you take advantage of the free download of Chapter 25 of my book Alternative Medicine: Definitive Guide to Cancer.Integrative treatment uses multiple therapies. In conventional medicine the FDA demands one drug for one action. In integrative medicine—which has a higher success rate—you can't do it that way. You have to pay attention to all the organs and systems and whether they are functioning optimally in the body and get rid of the poisons that cause cancer in the first place. In integrative therapy you get rid of the causes of cancer and remove the thorn so God can heal. You feed the body with the nutrients it needs. Integrative therapy uses multiple techniques—which you will read about more later in this article—that are necessary for healing but are ignored by conventional medicine.
"I have a 20% chance for survival with chemotherapy. 80% fail," Dr. Scheller said in my Cancer Conquest video. "If I have a vaccine, which gives me 15% survival, which is very poor, combined with the chemotherapy that is 35% survival. If I have alternative protocols, which gives a patient hope with immune corrections, immune modulations and stimulations, again another 20%. You maybe combine it with hyperthermia, let's say 20%. In total we have an outcome of 65%. That's much better than the 20% with chemotherapy [alone], which is very poor. You have to combine everything together."
The Answer Is NOT High-Dose Chemotherapy and Radiation
Integrative medicine does not use high-dose chemotherapy. Because the problem with high-dose chemotherapy is it destroys the healthy tissues as well as the cancer. But when you use targeted, low-dose chemotherapy along with other techniques you don't destroy the healthy tissue and you don't have the violent side effects.
I have traveled the world investigating what integrative physicians are doing to treat cancer patients. I had bladder cancer and was determined to reverse it without using high-dose chemo and radiation. And with the help of natural treatments and some of the treatments I mention below I was successful. Here are just some of the treatments integrative physicians are using:
- A Special Type of Chemotherapy - High-dose radiation is toxic to the body. However, using a special type of low-dose chemotherapy at 5% to 10% the usual strength can be very effective. This low-dose chemotherapy often is successful because we know in advance what will target the circulating tumor cells by using what's called a Biofocus chemosensitivity test.
The Biofocus test is of vital importance because it allows physicians to screen for circulating tumor cells (microcells), the ones that metastasize (in other words spread) to the lungs, kidney, pancreas, and brain. The Biofocus test allows oncologists to treat both primary tumors and the circulating cancer cells. The circulating cancer cells are the real killers. The primary tumors can be surgically removed. Yet, conventional oncologists and most alternative physicians often fail to test for circulating tumor cells, focusing only on primary tumors. Even when the primary tumors are successfully removed or killed, so long as circulating cancer cells remain floating in patients' bloodstreams the danger of recurrence and metastasis remains high.
If a doctor tells you "we got all the cancer" but they have not paid attention to the circulating tumor cells, then that have not really "got all the cancer."Failing to detect circulating cancer cells is one of the main reasons cancer does so often recur, usually more aggressively than when it first appeared. For example, ten years after his first cancer, John Wayne died of cancer because they did not pay attention to the circulating tumor cells. The Biofocus test goes a long way to reversing this dangerous trend. The Biofocus test—along with a similar test they're using in Greece—has remarkably changed the remission rate of cancer. When the circulating tumor cells are eliminated, the cancer will not return. I learned about the Biofocus test from my mentor in Germany, the late Dr. Albert Scheller, who was one of the greatest cancer physicians in the world.
The Biofocus test also enables oncologists to tailor chemotherapy drugs that most closely match each patient's genetic makeup. In some cases, the Biofocus test might reveal that prostate cancer in a specific patient is sensitive to an ovarian cancer chemo drug. Or that colorectal cancer in a given patient is sensitive to a breast cancer chemotherapy agent.
By using a Biofocus test on a patient, when the physician uses chemical chemotherapy agents, he or she can use lesser amounts. This targeted, low-dose approach eliminates the violent side effects of these poisons. This is not a cookbook approach. It's different for every person and directly opposite to conventional medicine's one-size shoe fits all approach.
It's wise for cancer patients to have this test done every year once they're in remission to make sure the cancer cannot return. I send my blood sample every year to Germany to make sure my cancer hasn't returned.
Despite the proven benefits the Biofocus test offers cancer patients, only a handful of doctors in the US are aware of it, and fewer still provide it. To get this test, patients have to use the services of a company in Germany. Yet the Biofocus test was offered to the National Cancer Institute (NCI) years ago for free. At the time, the NCI indicated a willingness to examine it, yet so far they haven't done so. Do you think they really want to cure cancer?
I am not against chemo. I was when I co-wrote my book on cancer. But now the Biofocus test allows us to make use of the understanding scientists have already gained from the Human Genome Project and allows the cancer physician to know exactly what agents will destroy the cancer so that you're not wasting your time.
Watch an excerpt from my Cancer Conquest video to discover more about the Biofocus chemosensitivity test.
- Dendritic Cell Vaccines - In this form of therapy, doctors take out your blood and the following week give it back to you.Thedendritic cell therapy trains the immune system to attack cancer. There have been remarkable remission rates with this treatment. Yet, this therapy is rarely used in the U.S. You can learn more about this therapy by watching this excerpt from my Cancer Conquest video.
- Gc-MAF Therapy - When a woman becomes pregnant her immune system is shielded by an enzyme called nagalase that God uses to protect the baby in a pregnancy. When you get pregnant nagalase tells your immune system. "lay off I want this to come to fruition." Without nagalase, the immune system would consider the baby a foreign element and begin to attack.
Cancer uses the same mechanism to preserve itself. Cancer cells produce nagalase as a way to disguise themselves from immune cells. Because the immune cells don't recognize the cancer cells, the immune cells fail to do their job and the cancer cells aren't destroyed.
Gc-MAF therapy gives the immune system permission to attack the cancer by helping the immune cells recognize the cancer cells even when the cancer cells are producing nagalase and are essentially cloaked in a disguise the immune cells can't recognize. Gc stands for a type of protein molecule. MAF is short for Macrophage Activating Factor. Macrophages are a type of white blood cell tasked with killing cancer cells. When Gc-MAF is produced in the body, it helps your body fight cancer. But nagalase breaks down the GcProtein to the point the protein is unable to become Gc-MAF.
Gc-MAF is short-lived in the body. So if the GcProtein isn't continuously converted into Gc-MAF, levels of Gc-MAF drop dramatically when the enzyme nagalase is present. But nagalase can only destroy GcProtein—it can't touch Gc-MAF. That's why integrative physicians inject Gc-MAF into the body to enhance the activity of macrophages and gives cancer patients an advantage in fighting the disease. Integrative doctors successfully use Gc-MAF together with other therapies to uncloak the cancer cells.
Gc-MAF therapy also blocks a process known as angiogenesis, which is the development of new blood vessels. By blocking angiogenesis, Gc-MAF starves the tumor cells of the blood, oxygen, and nutrient supply they need to grow and metastasize.
Some integrative doctors, such as Leigh Erin Connealy, M.D., are using Goleic, a supplement that is 200 times more powerful than ordinary Gc-MAF in the laboratory and a third more effective in humans, according to peer reviewed data presented at the 18th International Meeting of the European Society of Gynaecological Oncology at Liverpool, United Kingdom, October 19-22, 2013. Goleic has eradicated cancer in ¾ of the time it takes Gc-MAF to work against the disease. Oleic acid, from which Goleic is made, is found naturally in the body and in olive oil. When Gc-MAF enters the body it is immediately attracted to oleic acid.
- Salicinium Therapy - Another way integrative doctors increase Gc-MAF levels and de-cloak cancer cells so they can be recognized by the immune system is to use a natural plant-based extract called Salicinium. A complexed sugar molecule that isn't absorbed by normal cells, salicinium doesn't affect blood sugar levels. However, receptors in cancer cells are tricked into believing that the salicinium molecule is a sugar that the cancer cells can feed upon. When the salicinium enters cancer cells, it triggers a process that blocks their energy production.
Salicinium also stimulates immune cells while at the same time inhibiting the production of nagalase and exposing the cancer cells to the immune system so it can mount an attack. And salicinium inhibits circulating tumor cells, stopping the cancer cells from spreading throughout the body. Cancer patients using this therapy cannot take antioxidants because they will negate the efficacy of salicinium. For more information about salicinium, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 415-435-8222. For eight years, I have tracked the studies that have been done on this form of therapy, and I am highly familiar with the research findings.
- Full Body Hyperthermia - This therapy heats up the body, which dilates the blood vessels. By doing this, it enhances the effect of the chemotherapy agent, allowing doctors to use much lower doses. Hyperthermia acts like a Trojan horse to carry the killing substance into the cancer cell. For more information on hyperthermia, I invite you to watch this excerpt from my Cancer Conquest video.
- Insulin Potentiated Therapy (IPT) - As I mentioned earlier, cancer cells use 29 times more glucose than normal cells. During an IPT treatment, doctors use 1/10th the normal chemo dosage, which is then driven into the cancer cells with insulin. It's the health equivalent of a Trojan horse. And not only is IPT far more effective than standard chemo, but it also does not have the standard side effects of traditional chemo. Usually integrative doctors administer alternative treatments before and after the IPT to protect the immune system and target the cancer stem cells. This is more effective than standard chemotherapy because chemotherapy is unable to kill cancer stem cells.You can discover more about IPT in this excerpt from my Cancer Conquest video.
When doctors use targeted low-dose chemo, IPT, and full body hyperthermia it is 14 times more effective than chemo alone.
What One Integrative Doctor is Doing To Fight Cancer
Dr. Filiberto Munoz, a respected integrative doctor and medical director at the San Diego Clinic in Tijuana, Mexico, has used the following immune therapies in cancer patients with an astounding degree of success. None of these are available in the United States except the prostate cancer vaccine Provenge, which is very difficult to qualify for and costs more than $100,000 in the United States. Although these integrative therapies have proven highly successful without the toxic side effects of high-dose chemotherapy and radiation, doctors in the U.S. continue to use the more toxic treatments.
- Intravenous Vitamin C Therapy - High-dose vitamin C, when administered intravenously, is selectively toxic to cancer cells, while leaving healthy cells unharmed. High-dose intravenous vitamin C works in an interesting way. People usually think of vitamin C for its antioxidant properties. But when it's used in high-doses and administered intravenously, it acts as an oxidant, producing high levels of hydrogen peroxide that kill cancer cells.
Scientists found that when they administered the enzyme catalase along with the intravenous vitamin C, the cancer-killing power of the vitamin C stopped. Catalase is an enzyme that neutralizes high levels of hydrogen peroxide. Most cancer cells don't produce enough catalase to block the effects of the hydrogen peroxide. However, many cancer cells do produce small amounts of catalase in order to make sure that low concentrations of hydrogen peroxide exist in the cancer cells to create a cancer friendly environment that encourages the cancer cells to grow rapidly and become more aggressive. However, these small amounts of catalase are not enough to defend against the large amount of hydrogen peroxide that is produced with intravenous vitamin C.
In the 1970s, Nobel-prize winning scientists Linus Pauling and a British Cancer Surgeon Ewan Cameron published two studies where cancer patients given high-dose intravenous vitamin C and mega-doses of oral vitamin C experienced prolonged life and improved quality of life. Since then, there have been other studies showing high-dose vitamin C treatment cause tumors to regress. Currently, clinical trials are underway at the National Institute of Health to formally evaluate vitamin C's effectiveness. And many integrative doctors have already used this therapy in thousands of cancer patients with great success.
This therapy doesn't work in everyone. For example, some tumors are able to produce sufficient catalase to neutralize hydrogen peroxide.
Administering infusions of vitamin K3, a synthetic form of vitamin K, just before the high-dose, intravenous vitamin C treatment increases the amount of hydrogen peroxide produced in low-catalase cancer cells. Integrative doctors also often use vitamin K3 infusions before and after low-dose chemotherapy treatments, since this can prevent metastasis.
- Intravenous Mistletoe, Alpha-Lipoic Acid, and Curcumin - Intravenous mistletoe is used against many forms of cancer.Aggressive cancers like breast cancer, colorectal cancer, and glioblastomas have gone into remission after mistletoe treatment.Intravenous alpha lipoic acid also is used by integrative physicians when treating cancer patients. Studies also have shown alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) stops the growth of human cancer cells and breast cancer cells.When ALA was used together with low-dose naltrexone, it was effective in several cases of pancreatic cancer. This is impressive given that pancreatic cancer is one of the most aggressive cancers.
Some integrative doctors, such as Dr. Leigh Erin Connealy at the Cancer Center For Healing in Orange County, California, also use intravenous curcumin therapy in cancer patients. Curcumin is found in the spice turmeric. It can block the formation of cancer-causing inflammatory products such as NF-KappaB and tumor necrosis factor-alpha.By clocking these inflammatory molecules, curcumin changes gene expression in such a way that protects against cancer development and progression.
- Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy - Dr. Otto Warburg won a Nobel Prize in 1931 for demonstrating the link between low oxygen levels in cells and cancer. He found that depriving a cell of 60% of its oxygen requirements leads to cancer.
Since then, researchers have confirmed Dr. Warburg's findings showing that a low-oxygen state causes tumors to spread and become more aggressive. That's why administering oxygen to cancer patients by having them inhale oxygen in hyperbaric oxygen chambers can stop cancer from developing and spreading throughout the body. Studies in animals and humans have shown that hyperbaric oxygen can help prevent the toxic side effects of radiation, and cell culture and animal studies have proven that hyperbaric oxygen can stop tumors from growing.
- Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation and Ozone Therapy - In this therapy, integrative doctors withdraw blood from a patient using an IV needle and tubing directs the blood through a device that briefly exposes it to ultraviolet A and C wavelengths. The blood is then returned to the vein and bloodstream. This stimulates your immune system to attack cancer cells or harmful organisms and has other beneficial effects, too, such as acting as an anti-inflammatory, inactivating toxins, and helping the body cope better with radiation and chemotherapy.
Some integrative doctors, such as the Center For New Medicine, often use UV blood irradiation together with ozone therapy, which energizes the immune system. In ozone therapy, doctors withdraw a small amount of blood using a syringe. The blood is placed into an IV bag, where it is exposed to ozone and then to the ultraviolet light before being introduced back into the patient.
Dr. Frank Shallenberger believes that ozone therapy is superior to hyperbaric oxygen as a cancer treatment. During his presentation at the 40th Annual meeting of the Cancer Control Society, he explained that in cancer, it's not that cells are being deprived of oxygen. The real problem is that the mitochondria, the energy powerhouses of the cells, are unable to use oxygen. Unlike hyperbaric oxygen, ozone does more than send oxygen to the cells. It actually stimulates the mitochondria so that they can use the already available oxygen. Shallenberger noted that ozone takes care of three aspects of cancer. It treats the cause of cancer, in other words the mitochondria not being able to use the oxygen. It enhances the vitality and immunity of patients. And, finally, ozone reduces the growth of cancer cells.
In many parts of the world, ozone is the therapy of choice. It's standard care in Germany. In fact, 70% to 80% of the doctors in Germany use it. It's actually considered medical malpractice not to use ozone before and after surgery where it is given instead of antibiotics. It's well-respected in Russia, too. And in Cuba and India they actually have ozone hospitals. Ozone is the most studied medicine, with more than 3,000 references in the German medical literature reporting upon the use of medical ozone.
But your oncologist won't tell you about ozone. Instead, they want to give you toxic, expensive treatments due to the greed and corruption I talk about elsewhere in this article. Russia and Cuba have socialized medicine, so pharmaceutical companies aren't able to profit from expensive treatments. Germany suffered from poverty after World Ward II. Today, India still does. Ozone therapy is affordable because it uses an ingredient that's free—ozone. In the United States, if a drug company can't profit off a treatment, it's ridiculed.
- Chiropractic Treatment - In breast cancer, it's important to use a chiropractor who will check thoracic 5, 6, and 7 (the points immediately behind the breast). They are usually out of alignment.
- Homeopathy - Research published in respected medical journals has found that the homeopathic remedy Psorinum 6 has prolonged the survival time in cancer patients. In one study of 44 patients with pancreatic cancer, 33 (77%) survived at least one year, 28 (64%) survived two years, 21 (48%) survived four years, and 17 (39%) survived five years. These results are amazing, given that 95% of patients with pancreatic cancer die within the first year. You can read the full study here. Two other studies—one of advanced lung cancer patients and another of advanced esophageal cancer patients—found results that were just as impressive. In some of the patients given Psorinum 6, the tumors disappeared.
- Intravenous Laser Therapy - Dr. Michael Weber, whose practice Weber Medical is two hours northeast of Frankfurt, Germany, uses intravenous lasers of various frequencies (blue, red, green, yellow) to not only knock out the tumors but to irradiate the blood so that the circulating tumor cells are wiped out. An ultrasound image guides Dr. Weber in determining where to direct the laser. He can go into various areas of the body including the lung, brain, kidney, or pancreas and obliterate the cancer.
Dr. Weber also uses intravenous laser therapy in conditions like chronic liver diseases, diabetes mellitus, lipid disorders, and various other diseases. Dr. Weber found that the intravenous laser therapy had a general stabilizing and energizing effect in almost all patients as well as many other benefits.
Doctors in the former Soviet Union first used intravascular laser blood irradiation about 25 years ago. Cell culture studies in the Russian medical literature have shown that this laser irradiation of white blood cells has many benefits including expression of immunoglobulins, interferons, and interleukins.
- Alkaline Diet. Conventional medicine oncologists don't believe that nutrition can play a role in reversing cancer. But nutrition is really important, not only to nourish the body but also to avoid eating what feeds cancer, namely sugar. As I mentioned earlier, cancer cells use 29 times more glucose than normal cells. Increased sugar uptake by cells can actually exacerbate cancer. In addition, scientists have found that high glucose alone can cause a rapid increase in cancer cell numbers.
Sugar makes your body acidic. Some cancer thrives in acid conditions That's why it's important to make your body alkaline at 7.4 pH. Alkalinity creates an inhospitable environment for cancer as well as other "critters" such as viruses and bacteria that thrive in acidic conditions.
You can make your body more alkaline by eating an alkaline diet. This involves eating more vegetables. Diet is essential, but it's almost impossible to do it with diet alone. That's why the product pHenomenal Water is so important. It's a modifier of acidity. This will help you maintain the ideal 7.4 pH. You can test the pH of your saliva using litmus paper inserted in your mouth before brushing your teeth in the morning. Litmus paper test strips are available on Amazon or at your local drugstore.
To learn more about the alkaline diet and why it's so important, watch these videos from Dr. Bernardo Majalca.
The Dangers of Making Your Body Too Alkaline
The late integrative oncologist Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez believed that doctors are making a mistake by encouraging patients to become overly alkaline. Dr. Gonzalez's mentor, Dr. Kelly, discovered four decades ago that some people are too alkaline while others have a balanced acid base. Dr. Kelly found that people who are overly acid tend to develop solid tumors of the breast, lung, stomach, pancreas, colon, liver, uterus, ovaries, and prostate. On the other hand, people who are overly alkaline are predisposed to develop immune and blood cancers such as leukemia, lymphoma, and multiple myeloma, as well as sarcomas. Overly alkaline people actually need grassfed, hormone-free red meat and have a type of metabolism that is efficient at using red meat.
Consequently, Dr. Gonzalez put his patients on individualized diets in order to balance their acidity or alkalinity. This ensures that people who are born with an acid-base aren't pushed too far into a state of alkalinity and that people who are alkaline don't become too alkaline or too acid. The individualized diet plan was part of his three-part approach to ensure the body's stem cells aren't being transformed into cancer cells.
The most recent research indicates that cancer develops from stem cells, the primitive, undifferentiated amoeba-like cells present in every organ. Stem cells are responsible for the skin regrowing after an injury. It's now believed that cancer may arise when there is a loss of regulatory control by the stem cells, which start proliferating uncontrollably and can become cancer. Viral infections or heavy metals are just two of the factors that can cause stem cells to proliferate uncontrollably.
That's why Dr. Gonzalez used a three-part approach to ensure the stem cells are regulated. First, he used an individualized diet appropriate for whether a person was born with an acid-base or was more alkaline. Second, he used an individualized supplement regimen along with a special type of pancreatic enzymes that he sourced from New Zealand. He cautioned that some supplements can make patients more acid and others more alkaline, and he emphasized the importance of keeping alkaline patients off acid supplements and acid-based patients off of supplements that can throw them into an overly alkaline state. Third, he put his patients on detoxification regimens that include coffee enemas.
Using this approach, like his mentor Dr. Kelly before him, Dr. Gonzalez was able to help even late stage cancer patients go into remission. You can read an in-depth interview with Dr. Gonzalez in John Forrester's upcoming book about blood cancer: In Good Blood — Interviews with Integrative Doctors Reversing Blood Cancer and Remarkable Patient Success Stories.
- Removing Heavy Metals and
Chemicals - If you remove the thorn, God will heal. And heavy
metals, pesticides, herbicides, and other toxins are the modern day
thorn that needs to be removed before a cancer patient can heal.
That's why competent integrative physicians work on detoxifying patients of heavy metals and toxic environmental chemicals along with many of the other therapies mentioned in this article.
Here is an example illustrating the importance of removing toxins. A man was diagnosed with prostate cancer. His tumor biopsy was examined by two different types of doctors: one a pathologist, the other a toxicologist. The pathologist saw only clear signs of cancer in the tissue sample, but the toxicologist found something more because she knew what to look for. She found abnormally high levels of a variety of carcinogenic chemicals including arsenic, DDT, DDE and chlordane. In other words, there was evidence of pesticides and other environmental toxins in the tumorous tissue sample itself. The patient was overloaded with toxins and his liver could no longer detoxify his body.
If you know the toxin, you can remove it. But first you have to be looking for toxins and, here, conventional medicine is inexcusably lax. Most conventional oncologists disregard toxicity as a factor in cancer. The pathologist missed the point entirely: he did not understand that in a tumor itself are some likely causes of the cancer. With this gap in understanding, he designed a treatment for the patient that could not possibly be effective, because it would fail to address the root causes.
Toxins lodge in the body, resulting in many different diseases, including cancer. Integrative physicians will talk to their patients about eating organic foods and avoiding cosmetics and toiletries that include toxic substances. They will also recommend detoxification techniques such as lymphatic drainage, skin brushing, ozonated bathing, coffee enemas, and near infrared saunas as well as nutritional supplements such as chlorella and plenty of fiber to help escort the toxins out of the body.
To discover more about how to reduce your exposure to environmental toxins and to help ban them from the environment, visit the website for the Environmental Working Group. You can also read The Pure Cure: A Complete Guide to Freeing Your Life of Dangerous Toxins, a book I wrote with Sharon Wynters that lets you know which products use toxic ingredients and should be avoided.
- Cannabis Oil - Cannabis, otherwise known as marijuana, destroys cancer cells. And the government and the National Cancer Institute know this is the case. Why? Because there are studies to show cannabis is a powerful anticancer agent. For example, researchers from the Virginia Commonwealth University's Pharmacology and Toxicology department used a specially crafted oil made from the buds of the Cannabis Sativa plant on leukemia patients. The researchers found that the plant's primary psychoactive chemical tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) suppressed all malignant cancer cell growths in several patients.
The evidence doesn't end there. Animal and cell culture studies have shown cannabis can significantly inhibit the growth of cancer cells, including a study by researchers in Spain that showed that an active component of cannabis known as THC can block the growth of cancer cells without the side effects seen in chemotherapy. And it kills cancer cells without touching healthy cells. Studies also have shown active components of Cannabis can prevent nausea, vomiting, and pain and stimulate appetite in cancer patients.
Cannabis also contains the medicinal compound known as cannabidiol (CBD). CBD is a powerful cancer fighter in its own right, inhibiting the growth of cancer cells. In fact, with breast cancer alone, there are a large number of studies showing CBD can prevent metastasis and have other anti-cancer effects.
Incidentally, for those people living in states where medical marijuana is not legal, in many of those states, using CBD oil is permitted.
With all the evidence showing cannabis puts cancer cells out of commission are conventional oncologists using it in the United States? Of course not. Because they don't want to rock the boat, even if it means saving lives without the toxic effects of high-dose chemo. And yet oncologists in Spain are so impressed with the research they're using it on patients. You can find more information about Cannabis and CBD oil on the United Patients Group website.
To discover how components of Cannabis kill cancer cells, watch this interview with molecular biologist Dr. Christina Sanchez who has studied Cannabis for 15 years.
- Nutritional Supplements and Nutrition - Because the nutrients we need for health are depleted from the soil, it's also important for cancer patients to take nutritional supplements. Mainstream oncologists don't believe in feeding cancer patients the nutrients they need. They're starving their patients to death. Conventional oncologists say it's counter to the efficacy of their chemotherapy, but nothing could be further from the truth.
To learn about just some of the nutritional supplements that integrative and ayurvedic physicians use in cancer patients, take a look at the table below.
Anti-Cancer Activity as Noted in Studies in the Medical Literature
Modified Citrus Pectin
The table above is just the tip of the iceberg. There are dozens of natural substances that have been shown to fight cancer. Which is why it's even more insane that conventional oncologists refuse to use any of them as part of a comprehensive anti-cancer treatment plan.
Essential oils also are used as part of many integrative physicians' therapeutic protocols. Thyme, jasmine, cinnamon, and chamomile have all been shown in cell culture studies to inhibit breast cancer cells. Chamomile, cinnamon, ginger, grapefruit, jasmine, lavender, lemon, rose, and thymeessential oilskilled lung cancer cells. Of all the oils tested, thyme was the most effective at killing cancer cells, although cinnamon and jasmine were also effective against lung cancer and prostate cancer cells.
- Eating Foods that Heal - In addition to nutritional supplements, integrative physicians urge their patients to eat foods that heal as part of a comprehensive program to put the cancer in remission. I read that Steve Jobs, who died of pancreatic cancer, ate lots of fruit and fruit juices. This was a huge mistake. He should have been warned away from these foods, which contain high amounts of sugar, and cancer cells are known to feed upon sugar. Even fruit contains high amounts of sugar, which is why many integrative physicians warn cancer patients to avoid eating all fruits except Granny Smith apples because these apples are sour and organic berries. For cancer patients, eating fruit is like putting gasoline on a fire.
Eating all organic foods is also critical to healing. As I talked about in the second part of this series, genetically modified foods and the pesticides sprayed on them are causing cancer and other diseases. I invite you to read my causes of disease article if you would like to discover more about how GMOs and pesticides are putting you at risk of cancer.
Detoxify with Daikon
Certain foods in particular are especially powerful at inhibiting cancer. One of those foods is the Daikon radish. Daikon radishes contain an established class of cancer-preventing compounds known as glucosinolates, which block the generation of toxic metabolites from chemical carcinogens, by influencing detoxification enzymes in the body.
In a study published in the European Journal of Nutrition, researchers fed rats a glucosinolate-rich extract from Daikon sprouts for 14 days. The detoxification abilities of the liver improved in the rats fed the Daikon extract.
According to the study authors, "Considering the ability of Daikon glucosinolates to effectively enhance detoxification enzymes, in particular glutathione S-transferase, it may be inferred that consumption of this vegetable may possess significant chemopreventive activity and warrants further evaluation through epidemiology and studies in animal models of cancer."
- Lifestyle Changes - Integrative physicians also will recommend lifestyle changes to their patients. Often they will talk to their breast cancer patients about impaired lymphatic flow and how wearing a bra can block this flow. Despite what you may read on the internet, there is evidence to show that wearing a bra is linked to breast cancer. In fact, in one study, women who wore a bra more than 12 hours per day were dramatically more likely to develop breast cancer. If you want to understand how and why bras can cause breast cancer, read this article by a Ph.D. in biochemistry. If you do wear a bra, wear natural fibers such as cotton, silk, or wool because non-natural materials have a different electric charge that can damage the body.
Many alternative doctors also pay attention to the research showing there is a connection between drinking alcohol and breast cancer. So they will talk to their female patients who are at risk of breast cancer and recommend they completely avoid alcohol, even wine. According to an analysis of 53 studies, for each alcoholic drink a woman consumes per day, her risk of breast cancer goes up by about 7%. The risk of breast cancer goes up to 20% in women who have two to three alcoholic drinks per day.
- Avoiding Biopsies and Surgeries - Biopsies and surgeries spread cancer throughout the body. Use the Biofocus test mentioned above to avoid biopsies and surgeries. Integrative oncologists also use a type of therapy known as anti-angiogenesis, which stops the blood supply from reaching the tumor. This therapy can eliminate surgery by encapsulating the tumor, allowing it to dissipate. You can read more about this in in Chapter 25 of my book Alternative Medicine: Definitive Guide to Cancer, which you can download for free on my website. I said no to biopsies when I had cancer. You can discover more about how to avoid biopsies and surgeries on my Cancer Conquest video.
- Eliminating Chronic Stress and Toxic Emotions - Ongoing stress and toxic emotions such as anger, guilt, or sadness can all interfere with the success of cancer treatment and make you more vulnerable to developing cancer in the first place. For more information on this topic, I invite you to visit my website and download for free chapter 25 of my book Alternative Medicine: Definitive Guide to Cancer.
Therapy - It's been known since
the early 1900s that pancreatic enzymes can kill cancer cells. Back
then, Scottish doctor John Beard, DSc, injected pancreatic fluid
(trypsin) into mice and humans. Dr. Beard reported that he was able
to put cancer into remission using this method, but the conventional
medical establishment, as is usually the case when someone discovers
a non-drug way to put cancer in remission, dismissed his findings.
Research today has shown that enzyme therapy can prevent
the side effects of chemo and radiation.
Balancing the Immune System to Fight Cancer
Internationally renowned clinical immunologist Jesse Stoff, MD, emphasizes the importance of rebuilding the immune response to stop and combat cancer. To accomplish this, he orders very specific blood tests that measure immune structure and function. Then, based upon the individual's combination of problems, he creates a targeted protocol that may include:
Dr. Stoff also uses insulin potentiated therapy and low dose chemo along with targeted therapies to buy time to rebuild the immune system and level the playing field against the cancer.
Do Root Canals Cause Cancer?
Integrative doctors are familiar with the research that root canals and fillings can cause disease throughout the body. They know that 95% of all breast cancer patients have a dental involvement, as noted in a German University study. One of my mentors, a Catholic priest in Germany who also studied medicine, explained to me that as much as 50% in the remission of cancer can be in the oral cavity.
One of the first physicians to recognize this fact was the late Dr. Josef M. Issels. In his more 40 years of treating terminal, end-stage cancer patients, Dr. Issels found that 97% of these patients had root canals. Like many cancer doctors in Germany, Dr. Issels would not begin his successful treatments until all root canals had been removed from his patients. Recently, other doctors have reported complete recovery of their cancer patients once dental fillings were removed. (If you decide to have your fillings removed, be certain to use a biological dentist because you can do more harm than good with the improper removal.)
When I brought up this connection to doctors in America, their attitude was: What the hell does dentistry have to do with cancer? That's how myopic they are.
To learn more about the dental-cancer link, watch an excerpt from my Cancer Conquest video, which does a good job of explaining the dental-cancer connection.
They're spending $4.8 billion on cancer research every year but the same people such as the National Cancer Institute are giving out the money and doing the research. It's not independent research because the National Cancer Institute has a bias toward drug-related solutions. The researchers aren't looking at the many factors that really are involved in cancer development such as the dental link. Instead, they're researching solutions that will profit the drug companies.
"As Einstein said, if you keep doing the same thing over and over again, you keep getting the same results."
A Proactive Approach to Cancer
Cancer often takes years to develop in the body. As I mentioned in the last article in this series, there are many contributing causes to cancer. Over time, these can result in DNA damage. Any insult to the immune system has to be removed. Remember, "remove the thorn and God will heal."
This is why, as a consultant, I send all of my clients to a medical detective. This is a special type of physician who looks at the body and sees that every organ and system functions optimally. Most doctors are incapable of doing medical detective work because they are trained only to look at their area of specialization. For example, nephrologists and urologists look at kidneys, bladder, and urinary tract and, in men, the prostate gland. Cardiologists only look at the heart system. Gastroenterologists only look at the GI tract. NONE of them have any meaningful training in diet, nutrition, and detoxification therapies.
What we need are doctors who focus on treating the whole person and who recognize the importance of ensuring their patients are meeting all of their optimal dietary and nutritional requirements. What we need are doctors who help patients minimize the effects of all the inescapable environmental toxins. Detoxification—draining the swamp—is critical. I highly recommend the book Detoxify or Die, by Sherry Rogers, M.D.
The Truth Is Out There But the FDA Doesn't Want You To Know It
Whenever a doctor in the U.S. finds a successful cancer therapy he or she will inevitably face a smear campaign. The results will never be published in the medical literature. He might even be accused of a crime.
The FDA doesn't care about curing cancer. Or curing any disease for that matter. Many of the agency's employees arrived at the FDA straight from the drug companies. And when they're done working at the FDA they know they have a cushy pharmaceutical company job waiting for them. All the FDA cares about is the drug companies' bottom line. If a drug company can't make money off a treatment, the FDA won't approve it.
An example of this is hydrazine sulfate, an agent that can eliminate the extreme weight loss in cancer patients known as cachexia, a primary cause of death in many cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. Hydrazine sulfate also stops lactic acid from turbo charging cancer, which is why in Mexico and other countries, some doctors use hydrazine sulfate with almost all cancer patients, not only for stopping cachexia but also for stopping cancer itself.
In one Russian study 63.5% of 46 patients with cancerous brain tumors experienced improvement after being treated with hydrazine sulfate and 73% of six patients with benign tumors of the brain also experienced improvement after hydrazine sulfate treatment. Hydrazine sulfate increased survival time and resulted in the tumor shrinking in some of the patients.
Hydrazine sulfate first received a lot of attention in 1995, when Albert Freedman convinced Penthouse magazine publisher Bob Guccione to publish an expose´ about the government conspiracy to cover up the fact that hydrazine sulfate can send cancer into remission. Freeman's wife had died of cancer before he had learned about hydrazine sulfate. The more he learned about its ability to stop cachexia in cancer patients, the more convinced he became that hydrazine sulfate could have helped his wife.
"In the Penthouse article, we exposed that there was a criminal conspiracy on the part of the FDA and the National Cancer Institute (NCI)," Freedman says. "What is being done by the cancer establishment is murder."
Hydrazine sulfate could help a lot of cancer patients. It could save a lot of people's lives. Hydrazine sulfate doesn't cost a lot. The drug companies aren't going to get rich off of it. That's probably why the National Cancer Institute has done its best to make hydrazine sulfate out to be a quack remedy even to the extent of committing scientific fraud.
The NCI claims on its website that "hydrazine sulfate has shown no anticancer activity in randomized clinical trials." However, the late Joseph Gold, M.D., who gave humanity free of charge his discovery of hydrazine sulfate, notes that the NCI's statement is "patently untrue" and ignores the ten years of randomized clinical trials performed by Harbor-UCLA Medical Center from 1981-1990.
This research was published in a respected medical journal. I personally knew the leading oncologist at the hospital. He told me the researcher was pressured to rescind the hydrazine sulfate research from publication or risk having his funds cut for other studies.
Every trial performed in accordance with internationally accepted criteria and standards of scientific conduct has found that hydrazine sulfate is safe and effective. The only results that contradicted those studies were from the National Cancer Institute (NCI)-sponsored trials of hydrazine sulfate in which the researchers allowed the patients to use sedatives and painkillers along with hydrazine sulfate, even though the researchers were told in advance taking these drugs with hydrazine sulfate makes it ineffective. The researchers also gave the trial subjects the wrong dosage of hydrazine sulfate even though they were told the correct dose in advance.
The researchers from Sloan Kettering Cancer Center scuttled this test. They set it up so that hydrazine sulfate couldn't possibly be effective. It's blatant!
Gold points out, "It must be stressed that no legitimate researcher on this planet would ever knowingly use an incompatible agent—or one even suspected of incompatibility—in the trial of a test drug. Use of an incompatible agent in a drug test, which acts to cause a negative study, can only be the result of incompetence or deliberateness."
To find out more about the hydrazine
sulfate cover up, read about my
testimony to the U.S. Congressional Committee on Government
Reform. I also invite you to read Chapter 26 of my Alternative
Medicine Definitive Guide to Cancer book ("How Cancer
Politics Have Kept You in the Dark Regarding Successful
Alternatives,") which is available

President Roosevelt created the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to protect the people of this country. Lincoln created the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Nixon created the EPA for the same reason. Our government has become so corrupt that these same agencies that were created to protect you are now protecting industry instead. There is a cancer cabal in this country that prevents cancer patients from learning about treatments that can save their lives.
Government agencies like the FDA and the National Cancer Institute aren't the only ones to blame. Doctors are at fault, too. Most doctors are afraid to do battle with the FDA and the medical boards for fear their medical licenses will be revoked. The Dr. Golds of this country are rare indeed.
It's Not Just Cancer—Autism and Other Diseases, Too
This practice of feeding the drug company's bottom line while the people of this country are starved for health doesn't stop with cancer. As I mentioned in great detail in the first part of this article series, Autistic children are paying the price for the government's greed, too. Virtually every disease known to man can be prevented or cured either by taking away the root cause of the disease and by using alternative treatments once it develops.
We need to wake up to the fact that we're not going to be around very long unless something changes. This is an emergency and no one's talking about it. We are the only voice out there saying, we are in the middle of a holocaust. This corruption is taking away our life between autism and cancer and diabetes and Alzheimer's. We can't survive. The politicians don't understand that they're selling us down the river. It's that violent. Of course we have global warming and of course we had a financial meltdown in 2008 because of the corruption. But that was nothing compared to the corruption in the FDA and all the other government agencies because that corruption is robbing us of life. When you add it all up there's no way our government is going to be able to pay the bills. OUR CIVILIZATION IS GOING THE WAY OF ANCIENT ROME!
Why Isn't Obamacare Paying For Integrative Treatments?
Most insurance plans under Obamacare don't pay for alternative medicine—and they should when at least 40% of the American public is using alternative medicine. The rare insurance policy that does pay for alternative and integrated medicine makes the copay so high compared to what a person would pay for seeing a conventional primary care physician that it's a disincentive. And these types of policies place a limit on the amount covered. Why is there a limitation put on getting well? Why are patients being punished financially if they choose not to use toxic high-dose chemotherapy or radiation? Once again, it's because of greed and corruption.
Save Your Life And That Of Your Loved Ones
You can make a difference. Go to the polls and vote. Join together with your friends and force the government into banning many of the toxic substances that cause disease in the first place. And stop the government and medical boards from harassing doctors who want to use alternative treatments.
It's time to start a health revolution. It's time to take our government back from the greedy corporations. It's time to protect your children and loved ones. Here's what you can do. . .

Get Your Kids Off Drugs: Better Ways of Dealing with ADHD
School is a particularly difficult time for children suffering from attention deficit disorder and other related problems. In America, thousands of our children come to school drugged into passivity on Ritalin and other psychiatric drugs. “Pop a pill” has too long been the cry of conventional medicine and frustrated parents. Alternative medicine offers options to help your child without exposing him to powerful psychiatric drugs.
