Cancer Book-Chapter 8

The “Top 7 Stage IV” treatments detailed in Chapter 7 are the
ONLY treatments which I recommend for Stage IV cancer (except
for the “O.C.C.” detailed in Chapter 9). However, there are many
more alternative cancer treatments which are worth discussing. The
treatments addressed in this chapter are strong treatments for Stage
III cancers. They are in no particular order.
The Budwig Diet
A remarkable alternative cancer treatment was devised by a German
biochemist, Dr. Johanna Budwig, also a seven time Nobel nominee.
Her most important medical contributions involved her research
into the roles of essential fatty acids. In order to mass produce and
distribute foods high in oils, food manufacturers deliberately alter
the chemical composition of the oils, which gives them longer “shelf
lives.” In the 1950s, she proved that these chemically-altered,
hydrogenated fats (which she called “pseudo” fats) are rigid fats
“There is not one, but many cures for cancer available.
But they are all being systematically suppressed by the
ACS, the NCI and the major oncology centers. They
have too much of an interest in the status quo.”
Dr. Robert Atkins
Chapter 8 – Stage III Cancer Treatments Cancer – Step Outside the Box
which stick to the cell membranes, thus causing them to
Dr. Budwig believed that these hydrogenated, processed fats and oils
shut down the electrical field of the cells and make us susceptible to
chronic and terminal diseases, since the beneficial oxidase ferments
are destroyed by heating or boiling. She also demonstrated that the
absence of healthy unsaturated fats (i.e. omega-3 and omega-6) is
responsible for the production of oxidase, which induces cancer
growth and is the cause of many other chronic disorders. She came
to believe that cancer was not the result of too much cell growth,
but defective cell growth (i.e. cell division), caused by the
combination of too much “pseudo” fats and too few healthy fats in
the cell membrane.
But exactly what happens to fats when they are processed? In
healthy fats there is a vital electron cloud which enables the fat to
bind with oxygen. Healthy, oxygenated fats are capable of binding
with protein and in the process become water-soluble. This water
solubility is vital to all growth processes, cell damage restoration,
cell renewal, brain and nerve functions, sensory nerve functions,
and energy development. In fact, the entire basis of our energy
production is based on lipid metabolism. Hydrogenation destroys the
vital electron cloud and as a result, these “pseudo” fats can no longer
bind with oxygen or with protein. These fats end up blocking
circulation, damaging the heart, inhibiting cell renewal, and
impeding the free flow of blood and lymph. Might want to
remember this fact the next time you want to buy some margarine
or fried foods, since both typically contain these harmful fats.
Dr. Budwig began to study fats in the 1950s, and she quickly
discovered much more about the metabolism of fats than had
previously been known. She began her research by analyzing the
blood samples of thousands of seriously ill patients, then she
compared these samples to the blood of healthy people. She soon
found that the blood of seriously ill cancer patients was deficient in
certain important essential ingredients, including phosphatides and
Chapter 8 – Stage III Cancer Treatments Cancer – Step Outside the Box
lipoproteins, whereas the blood of a healthy person always
contained sufficient quantities of these ingredients.
She hypothesized that the lack of these ingredients resulted in the
proliferation of cancer cells. When she analyzed the blood of cancer
patients, instead of finding healthy, red, oxygen-rich hemoglobin,
she discovered a greenish-yellow substance. She found that when
these natural ingredients were replaced, that the cancerous tumors
began to shrink. The strange greenish elements in the blood were
replaced with healthy red blood cells as the lipoproteins and
phosphatides amazingly reappeared. She then discovered that eating
a combination of two foods would replace the lipoproteins and
phosphatides and turn the blood healthy again.
She discovered that these abnormalities were linked to a deficiency
in omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids (EFAs), which are
essential to our health. Ocean fish (such as salmon, tuna, and
mackerel) are the highest in omega-3 fats, while seeds and nuts
(such as flax, linseed, and walnuts) are the highest in omega-6 fats.
When we take a closer look at our cells, we find that the cell walls
are made of fats, the most common being omega-3 fats and
cholesterol. The EFAs are full of electrons, which bind to oxygen
and proteins, and when they are absorbed into the cell wall, they
pull oxygen into the cell. And when bound to sulfur-based proteins,
they become water-soluble. This is the theory behind the Budwig
Diet: the use of oxygen in the organism can be stimulated by sulfurrich
proteins, which make oils water-soluble.
On page 85 of his book Oxygen Therapies, Ed McCabe discusses his
point of view on essential fatty acids: “The red blood cells in the
lungs give up carbon dioxide and take on oxygen. They are then
transported to the cell site via the blood vessels, where, they release
their oxygen into the plasma. This released oxygen is ‘attracted’ to
the cells by the ‘resonance’ of the … fatty acids. Otherwise, oxygen
cannot work its way into the cell. ‘Electron rich fatty acids’ play the
decisive role in respiratory enzymes, which are the basis of cell
oxidation.” Essential fatty acids combined with sulfur-rich proteins
Chapter 8 – Stage III Cancer Treatments Cancer – Step Outside the Box
(such as those found in cottage cheese and yogurt) increases
oxygenation of the body, since the electrons are naturally protected
until the body requires the energy.
Of course, as you would expect, she was persecuted for her work.
Just think of the money generated each year from the fat and oil
industry. The hydrogenation process is central to both of these
industries, and Dr. Budwig’s theory was based upon the foundation
that hydrogenated fats contribute to the formation of cancer cells!
Eventually, she was prevented from doing further research and
prevented from publishing her findings.
In her own words, “I have the answer to cancer, but American
doctors won’t listen. They come here and observe my methods and
are impressed. Then they want to make a special deal so they can
take it home and make a lot of money. I won’t do it, so I’m
blackballed in every country.” Thank God, she endured and now her
work is available for us.
Several excellent sources of sulfur-rich proteins are nuts, onions,
chives, garlic, and especially cottage cheese and yogurt. The flaxseed
oil should optimally be virgin, cold-pressed, organic, liquid,
refrigerated, and unrefined. One of the best brands is Barlean’s High
Lignan Flaxseed Oil. The blend of flaxseed oil and cottage cheese
should be a part of every cancer patient’s diet. You simply mix one
cup of organic cottage cheese with 2-3 tablespoons of flaxseed oil. Be
sure to mix them together and let them sit for several minutes. This
will convert the oil-soluble omega-3 into water-soluble omega-3. It
is important to note that neither foods rich in EFAs nor sulfur-rich
proteins alone will accomplish these tasks. This is because the oils
must first bind to the proteins before oxygen can be bound and
before the body can assimilate the combination.
I also munch on dehydrated flax seed crackers that Charlene makes
along with cottage cheese, stevia, and strawberries. It’s an excellent
snack and boy is it healthy! I also like to add a couple of tablespoons
of Carlson’s Fish Oil, an excellent source of omega-3 fats. If you have
Chapter 8 – Stage III Cancer Treatments Cancer – Step Outside the Box
cancer and use the Budwig Diet, be sure to stay away from sugar, all
animal fats, salad oils, and hydrogenated oils.
Thanks to the tireless work of Dr. Budwig we now know that
electron-rich fats interact with sulfur-rich proteins to bind oxygen
and promote aerobic metabolism which restores health. According
to Dr. Dan C. Roehm, M.D. (oncologist and former cardiologist),
“What she (Dr. Johanna Budwig) has demonstrated to my initial
disbelief but lately, to my complete satisfaction in my practice is:
CANCER IS EASILY CURABLE, the treatment is dietary/lifestyle,
the response is immediate; the cancer cell is weak and vulnerable;
the precise biochemical breakdown point was identified by her in
1951 and is specifically correctable, in vitro (test-tube) as well as in
vivo (real)... This diet is far and away the most successful anti-cancer
diet in the world.” (Townsend Letter for Doctors, July 1990)
Bill Henderson has worked with over a thousand “terminal” cancer
patients. The keystone to his treatment protocol is the Budwig Diet.
I read his book, Beating Cancer Gently, a couple of years ago. It is
an excellent book, and the neat thing is that he will work with you
over the phone. His protocol includes some very advanced
attributes that make it one of the most potent cancer treatments
available. He really focuses on a strict cancer diet, which is one of
the reasons that it is such a wonderful protocol. And as the name
says, it is also one of the most “gentle” treatments. Anyone who
chooses the Budwig protocol should use Bill Henderson’s protocol.

Dr. Kelley’s Enzyme/Metabolic Therapy
The primary basis of the enzyme/metabolic therapy for cancer
emanates from the recognition that cancer cells are virtually
indistinguishable from placental cells found in pregnancy. This
theory, called the “trophoblast” theory, was proposed by Scottish
embryologist, Dr. John Beard, around 1900. First he observed that
Chapter 8 – Stage III Cancer Treatments Cancer – Step Outside the Box
the invading placental (trophoblast) cells were astonishingly similar
to cancer cells, and other observations led him to believe there was
an intimate correlation between these trophoblasts and cancer cells.
In early fetal development, the placental trophoblasts produce a
protective environment (placenta) and a source of nutrition
(umbilical cord), much in the same manner as cancer cells form a
protective environment (tumor) and a source of nutrition (new
blood supply). Another observation was that the placental
trophoblasts seem to take a downturn in activity around the 8th
week of pregnancy. It became clear to Beard that this downturn
coincided with the completion of the digestive system in the fetus,
and the activation of the fetal pancreas.
Modern medical research has also shown that these trophoblast cells
secrete a hormone called human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), and
the quantities of this hormone rise until around the 8th week and
then begin to taper off. It is this very hormone that coats the
trophoblast cells and cancer cells and makes them impervious to our
immune system. It has been proven that hCG is found in all types of
cancers. Other than the trophoblast cell and the cancer, no other
human cells produce hCG. So, if you take an hCG urine test and get
a positive result, then you are either a pregnant woman or you have
Trophoblasts are also surrounded by a coating of glycoprotein
including a molecule that give them a negative charge. This same
type of coating is found around the cancer cell. And in fact, it is one
of the chief reasons for classifying all cancer cells as “trophoblastic.”
Also negatively charged are the leukocytes (white blood cells) of the
immune system. And as we all know, like charges repel, while
opposites attract. This being so, both trophoblasts and cancer cells
are impermeable to the immune system’s natural defense
Remember that the placental trophoblasts produce hCG until the 8th
week of pregnancy, when they taper off. This is a direct result of the
Chapter 8 – Stage III Cancer Treatments Cancer – Step Outside the Box
fact that the fetal pancreas begins to produce enzymes! And when
certain enzymes, namely trypsin and chymotrypsin and amylase,
encounter a trophoblast cell, they are able to break down its
negatively charged protein coating. This is why “morning sickness”
typically begins around the 8th week of pregnancy – the fetal
pancreas is not yet fully developed and does not yet produce
amylase, which is responsible for digesting glycogen (the “glyco”
part of the glycoprotein coating). As a result, the glycoproteins are
not broken down into their smallest units, and the mother’s kidneys
and pancreas are both forced to compensate and become overloaded.
The result is nausea, pain in the lower back, and low energy. Thus,
the pregnant mother can supplement her diet with amylase to
minimize morning sickness.
Interestingly, one of the rarest cancers is cancer of the duodenum,
which is the area of the intestines which is highest in pancreatic
enzymes. The reason that we do find cases of pancreatic cancer is
that the enzymes have not yet been “activated” in the small
intestine. This is also the reason that pancreatic cancer has such a
high mortality rate – the pancreas loses its ability to produce
enzymes, thus there is no control mechanism for the cancer!
In 1911, Dr. Beard published a paper entitled The Enzyme Therapy
of Cancer, which summarized his therapy and the supporting
evidence. After his death in 1923, the enzyme therapy was largely
forgotten, especially with the advent of Marie Curie and her
radiation work. The pioneer in the development of
Enzyme/Metabolic therapy was Dr. William Donald Kelley (a Texas
orthodontist). Around 1960, at the age of 35, his health began to
deteriorate. In 1964, a series of X-rays showed the signs of advancing
pancreatic cancer, including lesions in his lungs, hip and liver. The
surgeon said Kelley was too sick to operate on and told Mrs. Kelley
(his wife and the mother of his four children) that he had 4 to 8
weeks to live. Kelley was ready to give up, but his mother was not!
She threw out the junk food and meat and instructed him to eat only
fresh and raw fruits, vegetables, nuts, grains, and seeds. After several
Chapter 8 – Stage III Cancer Treatments Cancer – Step Outside the Box
months, Kelley began to feel better, and he was even able to return
to work.
However, after 6 or 7 months, he stopped improving and developed
severe digestive problems, probably from the advancing cancer. He
therefore began taking pancreatic enzymes to aid his digestion, and
eventually increased the dose to 50 enzyme capsules per day. It was
at this point that he discovered the work of Dr. John Beard
concerning the relationship of pancreatic enzymes to cancer. He also
encountered the writings of Dr. Edward Howell, an early advocate
of the raw plant food diet. In time, Kelley fully recovered from his
cancer. Considering the fact that the Medical Big Medicine still
considers pancreatic cancer incurable, this was very impressive!
Kelley theorized that the formation of cancer was attributable to
excess female hormones which were responsible for changing a stem
cell into a trophoblast cell. Simply put, this means that cancer is the
growth of normal tissue, but at the wrong place at the wrong time.
He believed that cancer progresses due to a lack of pancreatic
enzymes that digest the cancer cells. Eventually, Kelley went on to
treat over 33,000 patients who had cancer. That’s right…33,000. Dr.
Kelly had a cure rate of 93% in patients that lived at least 1½ years
after starting his treatment.
Of course, the building blocks of his treatment protocol were
pancreatic enzymes. He also instructed patients to eliminate
pasteurized milk, peanuts, white flour and sugar, chlorinated water,
and all processed foods. Dr. Kelley developed a line of over 50
nutritional formulations for different types of cancers, and he always
individualized plans for patients according to their own metabolic
type. The typical Kelley diet restricts protein, is 70% to 80% raw,
and emphasizes whole grains, fruits, vegetables, raw juices, sprouts,
and pancreatic enzymes. Coffee enemas are taken to help the body
detoxify and to eliminate toxins secreted by tumors as they dissolve.
The Cancer Industry, in their pompous ignorance and diabolical
greed, didn’t like Dr. Kelley curing cancer with inexpensive
Chapter 8 – Stage III Cancer Treatments Cancer – Step Outside the Box
enzymes! So, they sent a young medical intern, Dr. Nicholas
Gonzalez, to investigate Kelly’s claims and debunk him. Gonzalez
traveled to Dallas in 1981 to interview and investigate Dr. Kelley.
He was astonished to find case after case of appropriately diagnosed,
advanced cancer patients who were healthy and active 10 to 15
years after their diagnosis. Kelley made all his records available, of
over 10,000 patients, and encouraged Gonzales to contact any and all
of them. Eventually, the study sample was narrowed down to 50
cases which represented 25 different types of cancer. All 50 patients
were initially diagnosed as terminal. The median survival of this
group of 50 patients was 10 years!
As incredible as these results seemed, Dr. Gonzalez decided to go a
step further. He wanted to focus on pancreatic cancer, since the 5
year survival rate with orthodox treatments is virtually zero percent.
He searched and found 22 pancreatic cancer patients who had been
treated by Dr. Kelley between 1974 and 1982.
The 22 patients fell into three categories:
1. Ten patients consulted with Kelley only once and never
went on the protocol – All had died.
2. Seven patients followed the protocol only partially and
sporadically (as determined by interviews with family
members, doctors, and records) – All had died.
3. However, five patients followed the protocol completely –
All achieved long-term remission (although one had died of
Alzheimer’s disease after 11.5 years of survival). The median
survival rate of these five pancreatic cancer patients was 9
Of course, as with other medical mavericks, Dr. Kelley had his share
of persecution from the Cancer Industry and its wolves. He was
issued a restraining order which prohibited him from treating
anything but dental disease. When he violated this order, he was
thrown in jail. A Texas court also made it illegal for him to distribute
his self-published booklet, entitled One Answer To Cancer. This
Chapter 8 – Stage III Cancer Treatments Cancer – Step Outside the Box
makes Dr. Kelley the first (and only) doctor ever to be prohibited by
court decree from publishing!
Although he appealed the decision to the United States Supreme
Court, arguing that his First Amendment rights were being
flagrantly violated, the ruling was upheld. He eventually had to
move his clinic to Mexico. Not surprisingly, his enzyme/metabolic
therapy protocol was put on the American Cancer Society’s
Unproven Methods blacklist in 1971 where it remains today.

website here: www.drkelleycancerprogram.com.
Dr. Kelley died in 2005, but before he died, he wrote a book entitled
Cancer: Curing the Incurable Without Surgery, Chemotherapy or
Radiation. This book is even better than his first book and is
available on Amazon.com. His work is currently being continued by
Dr. Gonzalez, who runs a clinic in New York City. His phone

Vitamin B17 (Laetrile)
When dad died back in 1996, I began my cancer journey. The first
alternative cancer treatment which I discovered was Vitamin B17,
also known as Laetrile. I saw a video of a champion arm wrestler
named Jason Vale who had been cured of cancer by eating the seeds
from apples and apricots (which contain vitamin B17) and read lots of
good information on his website. The logic and science of how and
why vitamin B17 kills cancer cells was fascinating to me. Laetrile
therapy is based upon the theory that cancer is result of a nutritional
deficiency, and is based upon the trophoblast theory of cancer.
In the 1940s, Dr. Ernst T. Krebs, Sr. and his son (Dr. E.T. Krebs, Jr.)
and other doctors were involved in researching Beard’s thesis on the
trophoblast theory of cancer and they affirmed that he was correct.
Chapter 8 – Stage III Cancer Treatments Cancer – Step Outside the Box
In 1949, the elder Krebs wrote a paper on the pregnancy toxemias
and the role of the pancreas and trophoblast in these disorders. The
following year, Dr. Krebs and his son published a paper The
Unitarian or Trophoblastic Thesis of Cancer, in the Medical Record,
New York.
In the following years, the Krebses investigated co-enzymes, and the
possibility that cancer results from a vitamin deficiency disease. In
the early 1950s, they theorized that cancer was caused by the lack of
an essential food compound in modern-man’s diet, identified as part
of the nitriloside family which is found in over 1200 edible plants.
Krebs learned of the kingdom of Hunza in the Himalayan Mountains
of Northern Pakistan, who were said to be “cancer-free.” Doctors
Krebs knew that they ate huge quantities of apricots, but they did
not believe that the fruit contained any cancer fighting substances.
Until they learned that the Hunzakuts also eat the pits of the apricot
seeds, which are one of the richest sources of nitrilosides!
Nitrilosides are especially prevalent in the seeds of apricots, peaches,
apples, millet, bean sprouts, buckwheat, and other fruits and nuts,
including bitter almonds. Dr. Krebs was able to extract certain
glycosides from plants which contained nitrolosides, and eventually
applied for a patent for the process of producing a metabolite form of
these glycosides for clinical use. He named it “Laetrile.” (LAE-vomandeloniTRILE-
It took several years and actual clinical testing around the world
before a model was proposed rationalizing the utility of Laetrile in
the prevention as well as the treatment of cancer, when it received
the name “Vitamin B17.” Now, it is important to remember that a
vitamin is a co-enzyme, which basically means that it must be
associated with an enzyme in order for the enzyme to function
optimally. We know that the pancreatic and other enzymes are
reliant upon several essential co-factors and co-enzymes. Let’s
remember this “co-enzyme” information as we learn a little bit more
about the Hunzakuts.
Chapter 8 – Stage III Cancer Treatments Cancer – Step Outside the Box
The Hunzakuts consume between 100-200 times more B17 in their
diet than the average American, due mainly to eating the seeds of
apricots and also lots of millet. Interestingly, there is no such thing
as money in Hunza. A man’s wealth is measured by the number of
apricot trees he owns. And the most coveted food is the pit of the
apricot seed, one of the highest sources of B17 on earth. Visiting
teams of doctors found the Hunzacuts to be cancer free. One of the
first medical teams to study the Hunza was headed by world-renown
British surgeon Dr. Robert McCarrison. Writing in the AMA Journal
January 7, 1922 he reported: “The Hunza has no known incidence of
cancer. They have an abundant crop of apricots. These they dry in
the sun and use largely in their food.”
But why haven’t you heard of vitamin B17? It seems so simple! Well,
the fact of the matter is that the Cancer Industry has suppressed this
information and has even made it illegal to sell B17. Big Medicine has
mounted highly successful “scare” campaigns based on the fact that
vitamin B17 contains quantities of “deadly” cyanide. This is patently
false. Studies show that vitamin B17 is harmless to healthy tissue.
Here’s why: each molecule of B17 contains one unit of hydrogen
cyanide, one unit of benzaldehyde and two of glucose (sugar) tightly
locked together. In order for the hydrogen cyanide to become
dangerous it is first necessary to unlock the molecule to release it, a
trick that can only be performed by an enzyme called betaglucosidase,
which is present all over the human body only in
minute quantities, but in huge quantities at only one place: cancer
cells. Thus the hydrogen cyanide is unlocked only at the cancer site
with drastic results, which become utterly devastating to the cancer
cells since the benzaldehyde unit unlocks at the same time. The
cancer cells get a double whammy of cyanide and benzaldeyhde!
Benzaldehyde is a deadly poison in its own right, but when it teams
up with cyanide, the result is a poison 100 times more deadly than
either in isolation. The cancer cells are literally obliterated!
But what about danger to the rest of the body’s cells? Another
enzyme, rhodanese, always present in far larger quantities than the
Chapter 8 – Stage III Cancer Treatments Cancer – Step Outside the Box
unlocking enzyme beta-glucosidase in healthy tissues, has the ability
to completely break down both cyanide and benzaldehyde into a
silicate, which is much like aspirin. It contributes greatly to pain
control. Interestingly, malignant cancer cells contain no rhodanese
at all, leaving them completely at the mercy of the two deadly
poisons. This whole process is known as selective toxicity, since only
the cancer cells are specifically targeted and destroyed. Amazing,
Now remember that I earlier referred to vitamin B17 as a co-enzyme
and said that this therapy is based, in part, on the trophoblast theory
of cancer? The trophoblast theory focuses on the importance of
pancreatic enzymes (trypsin, chymotrypsin, and amylase) to digest
the protective coating around cancer cells. Here’s the connection
between this theory and vitamin B17: In the presence of certain
inhibitors in our blood, trypsin is inactivated and must be acted
upon by hydrogen cyanide to become active again. On this basis,
vitamin B17 acts as a co-enzyme to trypsin, since it provides
hydrogen cyanide, a harmless molecule, which reactivates the
trypsin which is necessary to digest the protective coating of cancer
cells. Fascinating, isn’t it?
The hundreds of clinical studies conducted by many competent
physicians around the world, including those directed by Dr. Emesto
Contreras at the Oasis of Hope Hospital in Mexico, give us complete
confidence that B17 therapy poses no threat to normal cells. This is
bad news for the Cancer Industry. Apricot seeds are cheap…real
cheap…not nearly as expensive as their latest chemotherapy drug
Believe it or not, the Cancer Industry outlawed vitamin B17 in the
1990s. That’s right...it is now illegal to sell apricot seeds in the U.S.
How absurd! Remember Jason Vale? Vale was diagnosed with
terminal cancer in 1986 and suffered from the disease for eight
years, enduring chemotherapy, radiation, and an operation to
remove a tumor. But in 1994, he saw a video touting apricot seeds as
a cure for cancer and began taking the seeds. He was cured of
Chapter 8 – Stage III Cancer Treatments Cancer – Step Outside the Box
cancer! He began to sell the seeds on the internet. Big mistake!
Jason is now serving 5 years in prison for selling apricot seeds. As the
FDA Commissioner Mark McClellan stated, “The FDA takes
seriously its responsibility to protect patients from unproven
products being peddled on the internet by modern day snake oil
salesmen such as the defendant in this case. There is no scientific
evidence that Laetrile offers anything but false hope to cancer
patients.” What a crock!
The longest and most famous laetrile tests ever performed were run
for nearly 5 years at the United States’ most prestigious cancer
research center, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New
York. Dr Kanematsu Suguira, the preeminent cancer researcher in
America, headed the team of researchers. At the conclusion of the
trials, on June 15, 1977, they released a press statement. The press
release read; “Laetrile was found to possess neither preventative, nor
tumor-regressent, nor anti-metastatic, nor curative anticancer
So that is it then, right? Wrong. When a journalist asked Dr. Sugiura
“Do you stick by your belief that laetrile stops the spread of cancer”?
He replied, “I stick. ” He was then asked why Sloan-Kettering was
against using laetrile to fight cancer. Sugiura answered “I don’t
know. Maybe the medical profession doesn’t like it because they are
making too much money.”
Dr. Lloyd Schloen, a biochemist at Sloan-Kettering, also performed
test on laetrile, but he had also included proteolytic enzymes to his
injections and reported 100% cure rate among his albino mice. This
data had to be buried. Sloan-Kettering took action quickly. They
performed their own tests which were designed to contradict Dr.
Schloen’s findings. They then changed the protocols of the tests and
amounts of laetrile to make certain that they failed. Not surprisingly,
the tests failed, and that is what they reported. They couldn’t let the
word out that laetrile had been proven to be a natural, effective cure
for cancer. This would have spelled economic disaster for the
Cancer Industry.
Chapter 8 – Stage III Cancer Treatments Cancer – Step Outside the Box
The most effective method of B17 treatment has been 6 grams,
intravenous once a day, usually given for three weeks. You should
also add zinc, since it is the transportation mechanism for B17 in the
body. Biochemists and researchers have found that you can give
massive doses of B17 to a patient, but if the patient was deficient in
zinc, none of the B17 would get into the tissues of the body. Also
important with B17 therapy are pancreatic enzymes, which form the
first layer of defense the body has against cancer. If you have a low
supply of these digestive enzymes then it will be difficult for B17 to
work. Also, emulsified vitamin A is usually used as an additional
supplement to B17 therapy. And laetrile therapy is best used in
conjunction with a very strict nutritional regimen, oftentimes with a
raw foods diet.
If you have cancer and are considering B17 therapy, I recommend
that you strongly consider visiting the Oasis of Hope in Tijuana,
Mexico. One of the principal proponents of laetrile was Dr. Ernesto
Contreras, who opened this clinic in 1963. Since that time, tens of
thousands of American citizens with cancer have traveled to the
Oasis of Hope, for treatments that have been outlawed by the
Cancer Industry in the United States. Dr. Ernesto Contreras passed
away of natural causes on October 14, 2003 at the age of 88. Today,
Oasis of Hope is directed by his son, Dr. Francisco Contreras. You
can visit their website at www.oasisofhope.com.
The Oasis of Hope is my most highly recommended cancer clinic, as
they employ strict nutritional regimen along with laetrile therapy,
all under the supervision of an oncologist. Oasis of Hope is a hightech
medical facility that employs cutting-edge technology, such as
digital CT scanners and state-of-the-art touch screen ventilators.
Doctors have access to electronic medical files through a wireless
LAN, which allows them to access patient records. Patients surf the
web on broadband workstations and keep in touch with loved ones
via digital telephone lines. The Oasis of Hope is comparable to the
top hospitals in the United States. If you have any questions about
admissions, please call 1-888-500-HOPE, Monday through Friday
between 8:00 AM and 5:00 PM Pacific time.

If you want to take B17 as a preventative, Dr. Krebs suggested a
minimum level of fifty milligrams per day for normal, healthy adult.
Personally, I take one or two of the 100 milligram B17 pills every
evening before I go to bed. I also take two tablets of Intenzyme
Forte, a pancreatic enzyme. I purchase my B17 either from Medicina
Alternativa: www.tjsupply.com or CytoPharma: www.cytopharma.com.
Over the past decade, I have purchased B17 from both companies,
and both have proven to be reliable sources. A bottle of 100 pills
(100 milligrams per pill) is right around $20. A bit of trivia: the
bitter almond tree, a wonderful source of nitrilosides, was banned
from the United States in 1995.
Essiac Tea
My grandmother, Helen Cade, “Mama Helen” as we all
affectionately called her, was the church visitor for Castle Hills First
Baptist Church in San Antonio for over 40 years. She and my mom
had been 2 of the 18 charter members of the church way back in
1952. (The church now has over 10,000 members.) As the church
visitor, Mama Helen’s job was to travel to hospitals and visit sick
people … dying people … injured people. I remember traveling
with her and everywhere she went, to everyone she met, she would
say, “Honey, do you know Jesus?” And then she would proceed to
give them on of her “pet rocks” on which were painted “Jesus Loves
You,” then she would tell them about Jesus’ death and resurrection.
What a woman she was! I can only guess that there are literally
thousands of souls in heaven as a direct result of Mama Helen’s
witness for Jesus.
Mama Helen was diagnosed with terminal cancer in 1988. I’m not
sure where she learned of it, but almost immediately she began to
brew her own Essiac Tea. I remember going to her house in San
Antonio and helping her make the tea, fill those amber bottles, and
stick them in the fridge. She drank it faithfully, almost as faithfully
as she shared the gospel with everyone she met. I say almost as
Chapter 8 – Stage III Cancer Treatments Cancer – Step Outside the Box
faithfully, because I honestly don’t know of anything that she did
more faithfully than share the gospel. Anyway, Mama Helen lived
another 10 years with her “terminal” cancer, largely as a result of
taking Essiac Tea, in my opinion. I’m not sure why, but she had
stopped drinking the tea about 2 years before she died.
Back in 1922, a Canadian nurse named Rene Caisse noticed some
scar tissue on the breast of an elderly woman. The woman told her
that doctors had diagnosed her with breast cancer years before.
However, the woman didn’t want to risk surgery nor did she have
the money for it. Providentially, she had met an old Indian medicine
man who told her that he could cure her cancer with an herbal tea.
The woman proceeded to tell Caisse about the ingredients in the tea.
About a year later, Caisse was walking beside a retired doctor who
pointed to a common weed and stated, “Nurse Caisse, if people
would use this weed there would be little or no cancer in the
world.” This “weed” (sheep sorrel) was one of the herbs in the
medicine man’s formula. The doctor had watched his horse cure
itself of cancer by repeatedly grazing in a particular part of the
pasture where sheep sorrel grew.
In 1924, Caisse wanted to test the tea on her aunt who had been
diagnosed with “terminal” stomach cancer and was given less than
six months to live. Caisse asked the physician, Dr. R. O. Fisher, for
permission to try the tea on her aunt, and he consented. Her aunt
drank the herbal tea daily for two months and recovered.
Amazingly, she lived for twenty more years! Caisse also tested the
tea on her mother who had been diagnosed with “terminal” liver
cancer and had been given less than two months to live.
Remarkably, her mother lived another 18 years!
Dr. Fisher and nurse Caisse immediately began treating cancer
patients with the magic tea, which she eventually named “Essiac,”
which is “Caisse” spelled backwards. She healed thousands of
terminal cancer victims with Essiac in her clinic between the mid
1920s and the late 1930s. At the height of her involvement, Caisse
saw up to 600 patients a week. The majority of those whom she
Chapter 8 – Stage III Cancer Treatments Cancer – Step Outside the Box
treated came on referral with letters from their physicians certifying
they had incurable or terminal forms of cancer and that they had
been given up by the medical profession as untreatable. It was
typical for Nurse Caisse to give her patients the Essiac treatment at
no cost.
After word of her impressive results spread to the United States, a
leading diagnostician in Chicago introduced Caisse to Dr. John
Wolfer, director of the tumor clinic at Northwestern University
Medical School. In 1937, Wolfer arranged for Caisse to treat 30
“terminal” cancer patients under the direction of 5 doctors. She
commuted from Canada across the border to Chicago, carrying her
bottles of freshly prepared herbal brew. After supervising 18 months
of Essiac therapy, the Chicago doctors concluded that the herbal
mixture “prolonged life, shrank tumors, and relieved pain.” So
effective were her free treatments that in 1938 her supporters
gathered 55,000 signatures for a petition to present to the Ontario
legislature to make Essiac Tea an official cancer treatment. She fell
three votes short.
Caisse was not aware of the vast influence of Big Pharma and Big
Medicine, which were (and still are) more interested in making
money than in helping people. Essiac was cheap and non-toxic. It
could cut into the huge lucrative profits from the “Big 3.” Caisse
constantly played “cat and mouse” with Canadian federal health
officials. They demanded clinical tests, but she stubbornly refused to
divulge her formula unless she got official assurance that Essiac
would not be lost to the people who needed it, since her primary
loyalty was to the people who had come to depend on her. The
authorities couldn’t give her the assurance she needed, thus she
never divulged the formula.
Even the world’s largest cancer research center, Memorial Sloan-
Kettering Cancer Center in New York, could not convince Caisse to
divulge her formula. A steady stream of doctors visited her in
Canada, observing case files and talking to patients, pressuring her to
sell them the formula. She was offered huge sums of money to
Chapter 8 – Stage III Cancer Treatments Cancer – Step Outside the Box
commercialize Essiac, but refused all but minimal amounts of
payment for her services. Not surprisingly, Caisse was heavily
persecuted and continually threatened with arrest. Finally, fearing
prosecution, she closed the clinic in 1942 and went into seclusion.
Rene Caisse died in 1978, at the age of 90. Before she died, she
signed over the rights to the Essiac formula to two parties: Resperin
Corporation of Toronto, to test, manufacture and distribute it, and to
a long-trusted friend, Dr. Charles Brusch of Cambridge,
Massachusetts, Director of the prestigious Brusch Clinic and
personal physician to former President John F. Kennedy. Dr. Brusch
himself had cancer of the lower bowel, which completely
disappeared after Essiac treatments. Brusch once stated “I know
Essiac has curing potential. It can lessen the condition of the
individual, control it, and it can cure it.”
On a side note, Dr. Frederick Banting, the co-discoverer of insulin,
became interested in Essiac and even offered Nurse Caisse research
facilities to test it. He believed that Essiac must somehow stimulate
the pancreas into functioning properly. Remember the trophoblast
theory of cancer and the pancreatic enzymes? Hmmmmmm…very
BEWARE: Due to the increasing popularity of Essiac, numerous
“entrepreneurs” on the internet have jumped on the Essiac
bandwagon with their own four, six, or eight-herb products. But
Caisse never published her formula. The only person she trusted to
help her make Essiac was her best friend, Mary McPherson, who
knew the formula by heart. Dr. Gary Glum had also learned the
formula from one of Caisse’s patients and published it in 1988.
According to Dr. Glum, the original Indian formula contained only
four herbs. Every herbal formula has its own synergy and therefore
creates a specific effect. Essiac works. Why change it by adding
more herbs that may diminish its proven healing powers?
Anyone can verify, with a computer, the correct Essiac formula that
Caisse entrusted to Mary McPherson. Simply visit “The Rene M.

􀂾 6 1/2 cups cut up Burdock Root (cut into pea-sized pieces)
o For centuries, burdock root has been regarded as an
effective blood purifier that neutralizes and
eliminates poisons from the body. Studies have
shown anti-tumor activity in burdock. Japanese
scientists have isolated an anti-mutation property in
burdock, which they call the “B factor.” A memo
from the WHO revealed that burdock is effective
against HIV.
􀂾 1 pound powdered Sheep Sorrel
o Caisse isolated sheep sorrel leaves as the main essiac
herb that dissolves cancerous tumors. Sheep sorrel
contains aloe emodin, a natural substance that shows
significant anti-leukemic activity. Sheep sorrel
contains antioxidants, is diuretic and has been used
to check hemorrhages.
􀂾 1/4 cup powdered Slippery Elm Bark
o Slippery elm is well-known for its soothing
properties. It reduces inflammations such as sore
throat, diarrhea, and urinary problems. It contains
beta-sitosterol, which has shown anti-cancer

o “Turkey Rhubarb” has been shown to have antitumor
activity. It is diuretic, anti-inflammatory, and
IMPORTANT: As with all herbal teas, Essiac’s ability to work is
heavily dependent on the quality of the growing, processing, and
storage of the herbs. Herbs that have been dehydrated or frozen are
basically useless. It is best if you can grow your own fresh herbs.
The preparation of Essiac Tea is as important as the formula itself.
Essiac is a decoction, not an infusion. An infusion is what people do
Chapter 8 – Stage III Cancer Treatments Cancer – Step Outside the Box
when they put a tea bag in a cup of hot water. Generally speaking,
an infusion tends to extract vitamins and volatile oils. A decoction is
used to extract minerals, etc. from roots, bark or seeds by boiling for
several minutes and then allowing the herbs to steep for several
hours. Entrepreneurs often sell Essiac imitations in tincture form
(herbs in alcohol) or in gelatin capsules; neither form is Essiac
because Essiac is a decoction.
1. Using a stainless steel pot and lid, boil 1/2 cup of herb mix in
one gallon of pure, unchlorinated water for ten minutes.
2. Turn off heat and allow herbs to steep for 12 hours.
3. Heat up tea to steaming, but not boiling. Allow herbs to
settle a couple minutes.
4. Strain off hot liquid into sterilized canning jars. The
remaining pulp can be used for healing poultices.
5. Refrigerate tea. For long-term storage use the boiling water
bath canning method and store in a cool, dark, dry place.
For preventive purposes, people take 1 to 2 oz. (1/8 to 1/4 cup) per
day diluted with about 1/2 cup hot water. Be sure to drink plenty of
water (at least half a gallon) each day to help flush the toxins out of
your system. If you have cancer, you should take Essiac three times
a day. Do not eat or drink anything (except water) one hour before
to one hour after taking Essiac. Essiac tea is compatible with other
alternative cancer treatments, except for Cancell. Do not take
ProtocelTM with Essiac tea, since they tend to neutralize each other.

Oleander Soup
In the early 1960s, a Turkish doctor named H. Zima Ozel discovered
a group of rural Turkish villagers who were amazingly healthy and
disease free, compared to other similar villagers. When he
investigated further, he found that the healthy villagers were all
Chapter 8 – Stage III Cancer Treatments Cancer – Step Outside the Box
taking a folk remedy that had been used in the Middle East for over
2 millennia. This remedy was based on a common plant referred to
in the Bible as the “desert Rose,” or more commonly to most of us,
the oleander plant. This plant is a highly toxic plant when ingested
raw, but the source of a wonderful remedy when properly prepared.
The term “oleander” refers to two plant species, Nerium oleander
(common oleander) and Thevetia peruviana (yellow oleander). Both
species contain chemicals called “cardiac glycosides” that have
effects similar to the heart drug digoxin, which can be toxic.
However, virtually every substance a person puts in their mouth is
toxic if taken in high enough doses. Sugar is toxic if you eat too
much of it. So is processed salt.
Let’s get back to our “oleander” history lesson. After his discovery,
Dr. Ozel applied for a patent. In his patent application, he
mentioned several case studies as well as one study which included
494 patients. Here is a quote from the patent application: “Between
January 1981 and December, 1985, 494 patients with inoperable,
advanced malignant diseases were tested with NOI (injections of
oleander). All malignancy had previously been diagnosed at various
specialized medical institutions in Turkey and abroad. The
malignancies of these patients had progressed to a state where they
could no longer benefit from existing anti-tumor therapies. These
494 cases included examples of almost all varieties of malignancies
and were found in various organs.”
These 494 patients experienced improved quality of life as well as
regression of cancer, while reporting no notable side effects. The
best results were said to be in prostate, lung, and brain cancers. Even
sarcomas showed stabilization. Could it be that the oleander plant,
when prepared in the correct manner and administered correctly, is
preferentially toxic to cancer cells? If you remember, it is widely
accepted that there are numerous natural substances that are toxic to
cancer cells, but harmless to normal cells. In fact, there are many
natural substances that fit into this category. For example, purple
concord grapes have more than a dozen such substances. One of the
Chapter 8 – Stage III Cancer Treatments Cancer – Step Outside the Box
goals of alternative cancer researchers is to find substances that are
toxic enough to kill cancer cells, but not so toxic that they kill
normal cells.
This is where oleander comes into the equation. As I have
mentioned, oleander is toxic. It should always be handled with
gloves. There are many other safety warnings when dealing with the
oleander plant. Rest assured, it is very toxic…to both cancer cells
and normal cells. But when we are able to dilute it in the
appropriate proportions, then it is still toxic to cancer cells but
harmless to normal cells! This level of dilution and toxicity is now
Tony Isaacs has written what is, by far, the best ebook on oleander,
entitled Cancer’s Natural Enemy. If you plan on using this protocol,
please visit www.rose-laurel.com and purchase his ebook. It is very
inexpensive and very informative. In an email from Mr. Isaacs to
Webster Kehr, he stated, “I have heard nothing but good reports
from those who have been using oleander soup or the oleander
extract available now at Takesun do Brasil. Cancers gone, cancers in
remission, tumors shrinking, etc. And the reports out of South
Africa, where the government has embraced the mixture of oleander
plus agaricus blazei murrill, pau de arco and cat's claw extract combo
(80% oleander) is that every single patient is doing well. HIV-AIDS
halted and stabilized or even apparently reversed. And not one
single report to date of a serious side effect or adverse reaction to
oleander extract. It is a good feeling to be able to help someone.”
There is a chapter in the ebook titled “The Anti-Cancer and Disease
Protocol,” which details an extremely effective program for anyone
who wants to have the maximum chances of beating cancer and
disease. This chapter includes information on cleaning and
detoxification, diet, nutrition, building a strong immune system, and
cancer-fighting supplements.
The simple and honest truth is that oleander soup really works
incredibly well. The remedy can be used alone, with other immuneChapter
8 – Stage III Cancer Treatments Cancer – Step Outside the Box
boosting supplements, and even with prescription medications and
conventional treatments such as the “Big 3.” From testimonials that
I have read, I have learned that combining oleander with chemo or
radiation will either eliminate or greatly lessen virtually all of the
deleterious side effects, including hair loss!
If you do not live in an area of the world where the oleander plant
grows wild, you should be able to purchase seeds on the internet.
However, if time is of the essence and you don’t want to wait for a
plant to grow, it is probably best to buy live plants at a local flower
shop or over the internet.
BEWARE: Even though the dilution factor is now well established,
you should read and re-read Cancer’s Natural Enemy several times
before you begin processing a real oleander plant, since the oleander
plant is toxic. Even a small amount of the raw material, if ingested,
can cause death.
Coral Calcium
In the October 13, 1998 issue of the New York Times published an
article entitled “Calcium Takes Its Place As a Superstar of Nutrients”
in which it reports that a study published in the Journal of the
American Medical Association reported that “increasing calcium
induced normal development of the epithelia cells and might also
prevent cancer in such organs as the breast, prostate and pancreas.”
An understanding of the tremendous cancer fighting benefits of
calcium was initially developed by Dr. Carl Reich. He theorized that
most diseases were a result of overly acidic bodies coupled with a
calcium deficiency. He worked several years with Dr. Otto Warburg
on this theory, and eventually determined that many people show
signs of calcium deficiency because they were also deficient in
vitamin D. It has been demonstrated that phosphates, found in red
meat and other foods, prevent calcium from being broken down.
Chapter 8 – Stage III Cancer Treatments Cancer – Step Outside the Box
Once the calcium has been broken down, its absorption into the
body is totally dependent on the presence of vitamin D in the
intestine. Unfortunately, vitamin D is rare in most foods. The best
way to get vitamin-D is to expose your skin to at least 20 minutes of
ultra violet sunlight each day, take cod liver oil, or a supplement. In
any event, vitamin D is absolutely required so the body will absorb
the calcium.
Vitamin D also acts an effective regulator of cell growth and
differentiation in a number of different cell types, including cancer
cells. Laboratory, animal, and epidemiologic evidence suggest that
vitamin D may be protective against some cancers. Clinical studies
now show vitamin D deficiency to be associated with four of the
most common cancers (breast, colon, skin, and prostate).
Dr. Reich collaborated with Robert Barefoot, a chemist, and wrote a
book entitled The Calcium Factor: The Scientific Secret of Health
and Youth. In this tremendous book, the authors state that no other
mineral is capable of performing as many biological functions as is
calcium. This remarkable mineral provides the electrical energy for
the heart to beat and for all muscle movement. It is also the calcium
ion that is responsible for feeding every cell, a feat accomplished by
latching on to seven nutrient molecules and one water molecule,
pulling them through the nutrient channel, detaching the load, and
repeating the process. One common denominator which links all
people who live past 100 years is that they all get massive amounts
(over 5 grams) of calcium daily.
Another important biological job for calcium is DNA replication,
which is the basis for all body repair and is crucial for maintaining
health and preventing degenerative disease. As important as all
these and hundreds of other biological functions of calcium are to
human health, none is more important than the job of pH control. It
has been said that “Calcium to acid, is like water to a fire.” Calcium
quickly destroys oxygen robbing acid in the body fluids. It is
interesting to note that Reich and Barefoot recommend DMSO and
cesium chloride for “terminal” cancer patients (i.e. patients that have
Chapter 8 – Stage III Cancer Treatments Cancer – Step Outside the Box
less than 6 months to live). I agree with them 100%, as DMCC is my
#1 recommended Stage IV cancer treatment protocol. They also
have a complete cesium chloride protocol which also includes coral
Why coral calcium? As rain falls on the earth and runs down to the
oceans it brings with it all the elements from the soils and rocks.
Organisms that eventually form coral reefs take up these elements.
Over thousands of years they can build up into islands (like
Okinawa). The coral is bio-chemically altered to contain all of the
mineral nutrients of life. As Barefoot says, “the result is a
powerhouse of natural marine nutrients known around the world as
coral calcium.” It’s important to note that calcium must be ionized
(broken into component parts) before it can be absorbed into the
cell. The beautiful thing about coral calcium is that it is already
ionized, therefore when you have the proper supplements present
with the coral calcium, absorption and utilization is greater.
For a cancer treatment, a person should take between 1 and 2 grams
of coral calcium with each meal, every day. You should be sure to
eat plenty of fruits and vegetables with the calcium to assist with the
absorption. I recommend ionic coral calcium, which you can add to
your drinking water. I have already recommended the Wolfe Clinic
in Canada for the DMSO/Cesium Chloride protocol, and they also
are an excellent source for top quality ionic coral calcium.
