WWW.CANCERTUTOR.COM Treatment For Stage IV Cancer Patients Please visit: www.cancertutor.com The first two years I was researching alternative cancer treatments, I did not fully understand that some alternative cancer treatments were FAR STRONGER than other alternative cancer treatments. It actually came as a shock to me that some alternative cancer treatments were simply not strong enough for some situations that advanced cancer patients were facing. Armed with that revelation, I started to research which of the alternative cancer treatments were strong enough for almost any cancer patient. It was this research which led to this article and the "ranking" of the strengh of alternative cancer treatments on this unique website. I also learned that "testimonials" need to be understood in context. For example, a testimonial for a newly diagnosed liver cancer patient, who had been cured with carrot juice and a strong cancer diet (i.e. the "cancer diet" is a list of the foods which are allowed and are NOT allowed during treatment) may not be strong enough for an advanced cancer patient and may even inadvertently mislead an advanced cancer patient into using a treatment which was not strong enough for their situation. The point is that for advanced cancer patients, a completely different and complex set of concepts, attitudes and treatments must be used to treat their cancer to give them signficant hope for survival. At any given time the Independent Cancer Research Foundation, Inc. is researching several alternative cancer treatments. It is critical to check back with this article from time to time to see if any new treatments qualify as "Stage IV" alternative cancer treatments (or see the home page of this website to see if there are any new "Stage IV" treatments). This article for advanced cancer patients, over time, grew to such a size it has been broken down into "Chapters." There was simply no other way to deal with the massive size of this article due to the vast number of issues which advanced cancer patients must understand. Chapter 1 - Introduction to Treating Advanced Cancer This chapter is the "Big Picture" of dealing with advanced cancer. It provides the overview of what the patient needs to understand about treating cancer. What Causes Cancer Every adult has some cancer cells in their body and they routinely develop new cancer cells. This is usually no big deal because the immune system is usually perfectly capable of dealing with a routine number of cancer cells. A person "gets cancer" when there is an imbalance between the number of new cancer cells and the strength of the immune system. Cancer is caused by an abnormally high number of cancer cells being formed or the immune system is weaker than it should be, or both. Thus, when you see some substance being mentioned as a "cause of cancer," it is almost always something which either causes more than a normal number of cancer cells to form (e.g. exposure to asbestos) or suppresses the immune system (e.g. excessive alcohol consumption). In other words, the things that "cause cancer" disrupt the balance between the number of cancer cells in the body and the strength of the immune system. However, neither the number of cancer cells in a person's body nor the strength of their immune system has anything to do with the actual formation of new cancer cells. We can compare this to an infestation of cockroaches in your basement. You hire an exterminator to get rid of cockroaches (e.g. your immune system) and the number of cockroaches in your basement is a function of how fast they breed (e.g. the number of cancer cells in your body). But neither your exterminator, nor how fast the cockroaches breed has anything to do with why the cockroaches got inside your basement in the first place. Learning what causes a normal cell to revert into a cancer cell can be equated to learning how the cockroaches originally got inside your basement. Once inside your basement, the battle between the exterminator and the breeding begins. You might wonder why knowing how a normal cell changes into a cancer cell is important. It is important because cancer treatments can be designed to revert cancer cells back into normal cells. But also, it is important to understand because an understanding of how cancer cells form in the first place can help you understand why some alternative cancer treatments are better than others. How Normal Cells Revert Into Cancer Cells The formation of new cancer cells is caused by a very special type of microbe called a "cell wall deficient bacteria." This bacteria is highly pleomorphic, meaning the bacteria can be smaller than a virus (e.g. a somatid state) or as large as an amoeba (e.g. the size of a trichomonad). This bacteria frequently changes it shape and its size. It can do this because it is "cell wall deficient." These bacteria, which can be "filterable" (i.e. as small as a virus), can actually get inside of a normal cell. Once inside a normal cell it blocks the formation of ATP energy inside the mitochondria and this is what turns the cell "cancerous." It is this microbe which is actually what causes cancer cells to form. See this article for details on how cancer cells form: The Theory of Cancer – http://www.new-cancer-treatments.org/Theory/CancerTheory.html Thus, we have two main players in the formation of cancer: 1) The cell wall deficient, highly pleormorphic bacteria, which is actually what causes cancer cells to form and determines how many cancer cells there are, and 2) the strength of the immune system to deal with the quantity of cancer cells. Thus, curing cancer can be perceived as doing one or more of three things: 1) Killing the microbes inside the cancer cells, which allows the cancer cells to revert into normal, non-cancerous cells (this reduces the number of cancer cells), 2) Killing cancer cells (which also reduces the number of cancer cells), and/or 3) Building the immune system. Of course, there are multiple ways of doing each of these things. But there are other problems in treating cancer. A very high number of cancer cells in the body can do severe damage to the non-cancerous cells because cancer cells literally "steal" glucose and nutrients from non-cancerous cells. Thus, we need to add the protection of non-cancerous cells and key organs to our list of things we need to do. Another problem for cancer patients is that 95% of all cancer patients who seek out alternative cancer treatments have had extensive chemotherapy, radiation and surgery. All three of these things also do severe damage to the noncancerous cells, the ability to digest foods and supplements and can damage the immune system. Actually, most cancer patients die because of the damage to non-cancerous cells and/or key organs. Thus, an advanced cancer patient has a very, very weak immune system, a high number of cancer cells, and highly damaged non-cancerous cells. In fact, the immune system is so weak that for advanced cancer patients there is usually not enough time to try to strengthen the immune system to the point it becomes a factor in the treatment. However, it is necessary to build the immune system for the long term. There are many other factors (e.g. surgery to the stomach which interferes with the bodies ability to digest foods, as one example), but for now these are the key factors. Thus, when a person first seeks out alternative cancer treatments, there are almost certainly four things to deal with: 1) A very high number of cancer cells, 2) A very, very weak immune system, 3) Severe damage to non-cancerous cells due to the high number of cancer cells and orthodox cancer treatments, and 4) A significant level of cachexia (i.e. the lactic acid cycle). Treating Stage IV Cancer Since beginning to research alternative cancer treatments in mid-2002, my approach to treating cancer has changed several times. This is due to both feedback from cancer patients, feedback from vendors who work with cancer patients and feedback from other cancer researchers. Before going on let me say that treating a typical newly diagnosed cancer patient versus treated an advanced cancer patient who has had extensive chemotherapy and other orthodox treatments is like comparing flying a model airplane to flying a B2 bomber!! For example, when treating a typical newly diagnosed cancer patient, strengthening the immune system is critical because obviously the balance between the immune system and the number of cancer cells is out of balance. However, for advanced cancer patients the immune system is usually irrelevant for the first few months of treatment. You might wonder why. The reason is that a person who has been on extensive orthodox cancer treatments doesn't have an immune system. The first priority is keeping the person alive. This involves safely killing cancer cells and strengthening the non-cancerous cells and protecting the organs. Another way to understand the treatment of cancer is to compare treating cancer to putting out a house fire. For example, suppose an electrical appliance in your house catches on fire. As long as only the electrical appliance is on fire, the fire is generally easy to put out. For example, a fire extinguisher can put this kind of fire out without the need to use a garden hose or call the fire department. This scenario can be compared to most cancer patients when they are first diagnosed. Scores of alternative cancer treatments can cure most cancer cases when they are first diagnosed. However, just because someone is recently diagnosed does not mean they have a simple situation. Some types of cancer need a fire hose right from the beginning, either because they are a dangerous type of cancer (e.g. squamous cell carcinoma) or the patient was diagnosed at a late stage. For those who have had some chemotherapy and radiation, we can compare it to at least a fire which has spread to some kitchen cabinets. In this case a fire extinguisher may not be adequate to put the fire out. A garden hose may be necessary and the person may call the fire department just in case the garden hose is not adequate. The reality is that if you are reading this article, and you have cancer, or if you are the caregiver of a cancer patient, you or the cancer patient has probably been through extensive orthodox cancer treatments plus have lost many months of treatment time. This might be compared to a house fire where the fire is already consuming two or more rooms and the roof is on fire. In this case a garden hose is no longer adequate. It is necessary to call the fire department immediately. This, in fact, is the situation of more than 95% of all cancer patients who seek out alternative cancer treatments!! Think for a moment about an extensive house fire. The more extensive the fire is, the faster the fire is spreading. Likewise, the more cancer a cancer patient has, the faster it is spreading, simply by virtue of the number of cancer cells that exist and are dividing. However, just like a fire in some houses will spread faster than other houses (for example, a fire in a wood frame house will spread faster than a fire in a concrete and metal frame house), some types of cancer spread faster than others. Thus, to treat advanced cancer you need to know several things: 1) How much cancer is in the body, 2) Where are the key locations of the cancer (e.g. brain, lungs, bones, etc.), 3) What kind of cancer is it (e.g. is it spreading quickly based on the type of cancer), 4) What are the tools you have to work with to "put it out." The last item might be somewhat confusing to the reader. Can't any cancer patient choose any of the "Stage IV" alternative cancer treatments, meaning the fire hoses? The answer is absolutely NO! There are many situations where a specific treatment would be dangerous to use. For example, in some cancer cases the slightest swelling of a tumor, even temporary swelling, may cause a serious and even fatal result. Thus, it is critical to know how much swelling and inflammation can be tolerated and which alternative cancer treatments may cause temporary swelling and inflammation. This is one example of why some alternative cancer treatments should not be used in certain situations, or should be used only under expert supervision. As another example, with lung cancer (including cancer that has spread to the lungs), if there is congestion, this is almost always the primary concern when treating the cancer, no matter what other concerns there may be. If the cancer patient has to go on oxygen, in the past it was almost impossible to save the patient because of how far the cancer had already spread. However, new alternative cancer treatments, such as the Cellect-Budwig protocol, have overcome the cancer of people who were on 18 liters of oxygen a day because they are powerful treatments and the treatment did not add to the existing congestion!! Another issue is whether the patient is taking any prescription drugs, including chemotherapy or any other prescription drugs. Some alternative cancer treatments cannot be used while a cancer patient is still taking any type of prescription drugs. Brain cancer can also be a number one priority. If there is brain swelling it can slow the heart rate down even to the point the heart completely stops beating. Another issue is bone cancer (including cancer that has spread to the bones). When bones become brittle and start breaking it can create severe depression in the cancer patient, especially if the bones that are breaking are in the spine. This fact will elevate the importance to treat the bone cancer first (though lung cancer that includes congestion is almost always the highest priority). As other examples, some cancer patients cannot digest or consume supplements (e.g. they are fed through an I.V.). Many alternative cancer treatments require the ability to take and digest supplements. The point is that there are many issues that affect which alternative cancer treatment(s) can be used in a specific case and which cannot be used. Once this list is known, it then becomes an issue of which one is the best, based on the priorities. In one individual case, even the slightest swelling would cause potentially fatal problems for the patient (a tumor was wrapped around an artery). This alone eliminated almost all alternative cancer treatments because almost all alternative cancer treatments create temporary swelling and congestion. However, the man also had had 5 feet of his intestines removed, thus he could not digest supplements very well (fortunately he was not on a feeding tube). That eliminated some of the remaining treatments. But he was also on several powerful pain killers. That eliminated the rest of the powerful alternative cancer treatments. When the analysis was done, there was not a single powerful alternative cancer treatment that was available to him. The only option was to pick a treatment that did not cause any swelling, modify it slightly so more of it could be digested, then add a couple of treatments that are rarely used to insure there was not even the slightest swelling. There are many factors to consider before a treatment can be chosen. This article will discuss many of these issues, and the chapters will link to other articles, in some cases, which go into more detail if they apply to your situation. These things are mentioned to prepare you for the fact you are going to have to do a lot of reading. While it is always best to work with a vendor or a clinic, you should do your homework before (and after) you pick a vendor!! A vendor will probably take your business even if they are not the best choice for your situation. This is because the vendor probably doesn't know about other alternative cancer treatments (i.e. they may only know about their treatment) and probably doesn't know which treatment is best for your situation. They will just do the best they can with their treatment. It is up to the patient or their caregiver to do the best they can to pick the best treatment the first time. The purpose of this article is to help them do just that. Also be aware that due to massive persecution of alternative medicine by the FDA, vendors are no longer allowed to tell you how effective their treatment may be in your situation. For example, a vendor may know that his or her treatment will cure your cancer, based on extensive experience. However, this vendor may have to do a "tap dance" with their words to make sure they do not say things the FDA doesn't want them to say. The goal of the FDA is to separate the truth (i.e. how potent an alternative cancer treatment or device may be) from the product. This is not because the FDA cares about your health or survival, it is because the FDA executives want to retire to a vastly profitable job funded by the FDA. Because there are unscrupulous vendors and because the honest vendors cannot tell you everything and cannot use certain words, it is really up to the patient, or their caregiver, to do the bulk of the research. Chapter 2 - The Key Issues of Treating Advanced Cancer This chapter digs a little deeper than the prior chapter and gets more specific about what an alternative cancer treatment needs to do. Issue One - The Fire Hose Every alternative cancer treatments needs to have at least one "Stage IV" alternative cancer treatment. This is the main treatment that puts out the fire. It is what the "fire department" brings to the house fire. Most of this article is on the "Stage IV" treatments. But remember that every cancer treatment of a "Stage IV" cancer patient needs at least one of these treatments (and usually only one of them). Having said that new advances in alternative cancer treatments are changing the landscape of getting rid of cancer cells. With the addition of a frequency generator (i.e. Rife Machine) to the Cancer Tutor website in May of 2009, an old concept suddenly became a reality!! Even before its inception, the researchers of the Independent Cancer Research Foundation, Inc. were working on treatments which reverted cancer cells into normal cells. This means they were working on treatments which killed the cell wall deficient microbes which were inside the cancer cells. Why is this important from a theoretical standpoint? By reverting cancer cells into normal cells the process of getting rid of cancer cells can be much faster. For example, when you kill cancer cells you create a lot of debris from dead cancer cells. This is why treatments that kill cancer cells take so long - it is dangerous to kill a lot of cancer cells quickly. But reverting cancer cells can be done almost immediately. The only issue is that you do have to deal with a lot of dead microbes, but that is a minor issue compared to dealing with dead cancer cells. Cancer cells are a lot larger than microbes, thus they create a lot more debris. The frequency generator article on this website was the first protocol which was designed to quickly revert cancer cells into normal cells. The technology goes back to the 1930s, but was lost to the world for over 70 years due to government corruption and a number of other reasons. Another advantage to treatments which revert cancer cells into normal cells is that these treatments can be used with other Stage IV treatments. In other words, the primary reason Stage IV treatments cannot be combined is that you don't want two cancer treatments killing the maximum safe number of cancer cells. This would lead to too many cancer cells being killed. But reverting cancer cells into normal cells does not kill any cancer cells, thus treatments which revert cancer cells into normal cells can usually be combined with the treatments that kill cancer cells. But more importantly, these treatments work so fast it doesn't really matter if they are used with other Stage IV treatments. But also understand that all of the Stage IV alternative cancer treatments which kill cancer cells ALSO contain supplements and foods to protect the noncancerous cells, to protect the organs, etc. Thus, a treatment which only reverts cancer cells into normal cells cannot be the sole alternative cancer treatment for advanced cancer patients. The treatments that revert cancer cells into normal cells only solve half of the problem (safely getting rid of cancer cells quickly), but do not solve the other half of the problem (protecting the non-cancerous cells and organs). This is important to understand: even if a treatment reverted every cancer cell into a normal cell in one week, this would only solve half of the problem!!! The patient would still be at major risk for dying because it is the long-term damage to non-cancerous cells and organs that cause the death of most patients. By a wide margin the research of the Independent Cancer Research Foundation is focused on reverting cancer cells into normal cells. As these types of treatments are developed they will be put on this website first. The faster you can safely get rid of cancer cells, the higher the chance of survival. The reason is that as long as a large number of cancer cells exist they are literally sucking the life out of the non-cancerous cells. The faster you can safely get rid of the cancer cells the faster the non-cancerous cells and organs can start to recover. Issue Two - Protecting Non-Cancerous Cells and Buying Time Many cancer patients die because of the spreading of their cancer. However, many other cancer patients die because their non-cancerous cells become so weak and sick that the body simply shuts down. Cancer cells literally "steal" glucose from non-cancerous cells. Cancer cells also "steal" minerals and other nutrients from non-cancerous cells. Cancer cells also create what is called a "lactic acid cycle" which robs the entire body of energy in more than one way. Treating cancer must be done on two fronts. You must work on getting rid of the cancer cells, but at the same time you must protect and strengthen the noncancerous cells. Never lose sight of the critical non-cancerous cells. It is these cells which determine how long you are going to live and thus how long you have to treat your cancer. They are what "buy-time" for the cancer treatment to work. Thus, "buying time," by protecting the non-cancerous cells, can be just as important (and even more important at times) than dealing with the cancer cells. Another key issue in this section is dealing with the damage done by chemotherapy. Those who have had high doses of chemotherapy have had damage done to their stomach and/or colon which likely reduces their ability to digest supplements and foods. But the digestion of supplements and foods is always absolutely crticial to the treatment of cancer!! For this reason, those who have had extensive chemotherapy, and have had damage to the stomach lining and/or colon lining, need some way to get key nutrients into their bloodstream. Actually, the frequency generator, mentioned above, does not need any digestive abilities because it is an electromedicine device. But whether you use a frequency generator or not, a patient may need to take liquid supplements such as Limu juice (www.thelimustore.com), Eniva Vibe (liquid vitamin and mineral supplement) and other liquid supplements. See the Colon Cancer article for more information. Issue Three - Stopping the Spread of Cancer There are three things which will help stop the spread of cancer, in addition to the primary cancer treatment a patient is on. First, is alkalinity. This is discussed in the "Cancer Diet" section of this article. Microbes and cancer cells simply cannot thrive in an alkaline environment. There are also alternative cancer treatments (e.g. the Cesium Chloride Protocol and the Barefoot Calcium treatment) which provide alkalinity to the cancer cells. (Note: This is an introduction section, but you should realize you do NOT want to raise the pH of your blood, such as with high levels of baking soda, as that can be very, very dangerous. This is one reason you must work with an expert, who will usually be your key vendor, and make sure the expert knows everything you are doing.) Second, is oxygen. Things like hydrogen peroxide (e.g. 12 drops of 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide a day), stabilized oxygen or chlorine dioxide (e.g. 12 drops taken transdermally, meaning through the skin) can quickly raise the oxygen level in the blood. Chlorine Dioxide is made from stabilized oxygen (i.e. Miracle Mineral Supplement, MMS, which is 28% stabilized oxygen). Hydrogen Peroxide Protocol http://www.cancertutor.com/Cancer/HydrogenPeroxide.html Third, for those whose cancer is in tissue (as opposed to leukemia), the Dr. Matthias Rath treatment is superb at slowing down the spread of cancer, to "buy time" for other treatments to work. Here is an article on the Dr. Rath protocol: Dr. Matthias Rath Protocol - http://www.cancertutor.com/Cancer/Rath.html Fourth, electromedicine, especially the frequency generator (e.g. "Rife Machine"). This device can kill the microbes inside the cancer cells, thus allowing the cancer cells to revert into normal cells. This is an excellent way to stop fast-spreading cancers because it does not interfere with most alternative cancer treatments, thus it can be used as an addition to almost any other "Stage IV" treatment. See: Frequency Generator Protocols http://www.cancertutor.com/Cancer03/FreqGenerators.html Issue Four - After You Are In Remission The purpose of an alternative cancer treatment is to put the cancer patient into "remission," meaning the symptoms of the cancer are gone. But even if every cancer cell in the person's body is killed, removed, or reverted into normal cells, your treatment is not finished. There is a very high chance that even when your cancer symptoms are gone, your immune system is not strong enough yet to deal with new cancer cells (everyone gets new cancer cells) and it is possible not all of your cancer cells are dead or reverted into normal cells. Thus, it is critical to continue building your immune system and killing new cancer cells (which your immune system is probably not ready to do yet). In other words, once the cancer patient is in remission, it is quite possible for the cancer to return (which is called: regression) because they haven't fixed the original problems that caused the cancer in the first place or the cancer returns because the patient returned to their old lifestyle. Or perhaps everyone thought the cancer was gone, but it wasn't completely gone. For example, almost all breast cancer cases involve root canals as a causal factor. Thus, if a breast cancer patient does not have their root canal teeth removed by a biological dentist or holistic dentist, their cancer may return. As another example, a cancer patient on the Cesium Chloride Protocol may hit their "cesium limit" (as determined by their vendor) before their cancer is totally gone. Or perhaps the cesium chloride treatment works so quickly the person's immune system is not completely restored (especially if the patient had been on chemotherapy)!! In any case, even when the cancer is "cured," the work is not done. A "remission" treatment is needed to: 1) Build the immune system, 2) Kill any remaining cancer cells, 3) Repair the electrical balance in the cells, 4) Flood the body with ionic minerals, and so on. Many things need to be done after the cancer patient is in "remission" in order to prevent "regression." Even those who are able to be treated at a clinic need the remission treatment because you cannot rebuild the immune system in a few weeks. There are two articles on remission you need to read. One of these articles is on this website and is linked to later in this article. But first, read this remission article on the ICRF website: Making Sure Remission Does Not Turn Into Regresssion – http://www.new-cancer-treatments.org/Articles/Remission.htm Chapter 3 - For Those on Prescription Drugs This is a critical chapter for those who are using alternative cancer treatments and prescription drugs, such as chemotherapy or pain killers or even radiation. There are many conflicts between these two types of treatments. If you are on ANY prescription drugs, or even over-the-counter drugs, such as aspirin, you should check with your pharmacist or doctor to see if there is a potential problem with using natural foods or natural supplements with your prescription drugs. A problem can occur: 1) when one substance negates another substance, or 2) when one substance interferes with another substance, or 3) when one substance enhances the effectiveness of another. For example, enhancing a prescription or over-the-counter drug can be just as dangerous as blocking their actions. It is impossible for this website to keep track of all possible conflicts. This warning is especially important for drugs that are being used as heart medications (such as hypertension drugs), blood thinners or pain medications (to name but three categories). Sometimes it is prescription drugs that interfere with alternative medicines. There is one very rare situation where a conflict can be directly fatal: the combination of tranquilizers with hydrazine sulphate. If you are on a blood thinner, you should not take proteolytic enzymes as part of your alternative cancer treatment. Proteolytic enzymes are also blood thinners. It is common when talking to a cancer treatment vendor to accidentally forget to mention something. For example, if someone is talking to Larry of Essense of Life and forgets to mention they are on a blood thinner, there could be problems because his complete protocol (as well as most complete protocols) include proteolytic enzymes (also called: pancreatic enzymes). This could happen because the cancer patient, or their representative, didn't know it was important and the vendor forgot to ask. However, it is likely part of the instructions that come with the protocol. The point is that a cancer patient, or their representative, should continue to study and read even after the treatment begins. In my dealings with cancer patients I have run into many cases where a dangerous supplement (for the situation) was being used and no one knew about it. This is more likely to happen when a patient, or their representative, designs the treatment. But it can happen with any treatment. If you are on blood pressure medication you need to buy your own blood pressure monitor. Take your blood pressure at least twice a day. If your blood pressure drops too low, quit taking your prescription drug for blood pressure. Continue to monitor your blood pressure. Many alternative cancer treatments contain supplements that lower blood pressure. Many cancer patients are on more than a dozen prescription drugs. It is difficult, if not impossible, to accurately transition from being on several prescription drugs to a pure alternative cancer treatment. Having said all of these things, let's be logical. If you are Stage IV, the chances of you surviving your cancer without alternative cancer treatments is VIRTUALLY ZERO. If you take both prescription drugs and alternative cancer treatments, you are in a paradoxical situation. Here are two of the several possible options: 1) the combination can do severe damage and shorten your life or 2) the alternative cancer treatment can cure you. Does it make sense to do the best you can at avoiding conflicts, but at the same time make sure you are using an alternative cancer treatment strong enough to maximize your chances of survival? The only hope you have of surviving is with alternative cancer treatments. Do the best you can at preventing conflicts, but stick with the potent alternative treatments. I liken this to a person who is drowning in the middle of a large pond. A person standing on the side of the pond knows they cannot swim to the person in time to save them. The only thing available to the person to throw to the drowning person is a large branch. But the person on the bank thinks about it and says to himself: "If the large branch hits the person on the head it will kill them." That may be true, but if the large branch is not thrown to the person, the person will drown. Thus, the only possible way the person can be saved is to throw the large branch. Likewise, orthodox medicine cannot save a person's life after the cancer has spread beyond what they can cut out. Thus, the only hope to save the person is with alternative cancer treatments. If You are Currently On Chemotherapy Almost all alternative cancer treatments can be used by someone still on chemotherapy. However, there are two alternative cancer treatments that are very effective for those on chemotherapy. One of them is the Cesium Chloride / DMSO Protocol and the other is the Tony Isaacs Oleander Protocol. Fortunately, both of these are Stage IV treatments and will be discussed later in this article. If You are Contemplating Chemotherapy Many families of cancer patients insist the cancer patient be treated by a medical doctor and that the medical doctor uses chemotherapy. Fortunately, there is an alternative cancer treatment which fits this description. Thus, both the family and the cancer patient can be made happy at the same time. In fact, the chemotherapy treatment, administered by an M.D., is a superb treatment!! It is the Insulin Potentiation Therapy (IPT). It combines very low doses of chemotherapy with insulin. Be sure you do NOT tell the rest of your family it uses very low dose chemotherapy (i.e. 1/10th the normal amount). Why do they use very low doses of chemotherapy? The reason is that the insulin opens up the cell membranes of cancer cells so that the chemotherapy will target the cancer cells and leave the healthy cells alone. Because this treatment allows chemotherapy to target cancer cells, very low doses of chemotherapy are used and there are virtually zero side-effects. It uses about 1/10th as much chemotherapy as a normal chemotherapy treatment, but more importantly it allows the chemotherapy to target cancer cells, thus eliminating side-effects. The reason I mention this is because some families of a cancer patient insist the person use a medical doctor and chemotherapy. Fine, use IPT. IPT is one of the orthodox cancer treatments which can cure cancer. Orthodox medicine does not allow its use in most states so you may have to do some traveling. Here is an article on IPT: Insulin Potentiation Therapy (IPT) - http://www.cancertutor.com/Cancer02/IPT.html There is an even better orthodox cancer treatment than IPT which uses chemotherapy; but it is not allowed in any state. In fact, the last medical doctor to use it was raided and shut down by the FDA. Also, note that some of the German cancer clinics use hyperthermia with very low doses of chemotherapy. They are another option for families which insist on chemotherapy. A link to a list of clinics will be given later in this article. When To use Radiation and Surgery Generally speaking, there is no reason for surgery, however, there are situations where it is critical. These situations are generally when a tumor is blocking, or potentially blocking, the flow of bile or an artery or the flow of some other fluid. In these cases, surgery may be required. Follow the advice of your medical doctors when key fluids in the body may be in danger of being blocked. This includes the total blockage of the colon or stomach. Do not depend on alternative cancer treatments to reverse inevitable blockage of key fluids. Likewise, generally speaking, there is no justification for radiation. But again, there are times when it is essential. These cases generally involve inflammation and pressure in the brain. When there is pressure inside the brain, it can literally slow down and eventually block the heart from beating. Obviously, if the heart stops beating, or slows down to the point it is dangerous, this can be fatal. In these cases, medical doctors will normally give steroids and/or radiation to reduce the swelling. Follow their advice. Do not depend on alternative cancer treatments to reverse existing or potential swelling and inflammation in the brain. In fact, many alternative cancer treatments will increase swelling and inflammation in the brain. Be very aware of this issue if you are dealing with brain cancer. Any cancer patient with brain cancer should take their heart rate at least twice a day - period!! The good news is that there are alternative cancer treatments which will not increase swelling and inflammation in the brain. Discussions on indiviudal alternative cancer treatments will mention which ones do or do not cause additional swelling and inflammation in the brain. Chapter 4 - The Cardinal Rules Going into even more depth, and even discussing specific supplements to accomplish specific tasks, this chapter details the "Cardinal Rules" an advanced patient needs to understand. For example, one cardinal rule explains how to determine whether your alternative cancer treatment is working or not. This chapter is the first of the very critical cancer treatment chapters!! Cardinal Rule #1: "Buy Time" To Treat the Cancer!!! Cancer is very stressful on non-cancerous cells, meaning normal cells. Cancer steals vital nutrients from non-cancerous cells. Cancer steals glucose from noncancerous cells. In addition, chemotherapy is extremely damaging to noncancerous cells. In short, the non-cancerous cells in a cancer patient's body generally need as much attention to details as do the cancer cells. But there is actually a very key reason to focus on treatments which help protect the non-cancerous cells. An example will explain this concept. Many years ago, two-time Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling, PhD, and an associate, Ewan Cameron, M.D., did a study in Scotland that proved beyond any doubt that Vitamin C, given by I.V., of 10 grams a day, could extend the length of time a terminal cancer patient lived by six times or more. While the alternative cancer treatments of today are far more potent than the Pauling/Cameron protocol, there is something very important to be learned from their study - the concept of "buying time" for a cancer patient. When you protect the non-cancerous cells you will "buy time" for the MAIN cancer treatment to work. In other words, "buying time" means you are using a treatment specifically designed to extend the life of the cancer patient in order to give more time for the primary cancer treatments to work!!! To understand what this means, consider what would have happened if the patients in the Pauling/Cameron study ALSO took a more potent alternative cancer treatment at the same time. Because these patients lived longer due to the Vitamin C therapy, the more potent alternative cancer treatment would have had six times longer to work and be effective!! In other words, there would have been a much higher probability that the more potent treatment would have cured the cancer because it had six times longer to work due to the vitamin C!! This is the concept of using a product that does not cure cancer, but it can extend life and "buy time" for other treatments to work because the treatment protects the non-cancerous cells. Most people do not have access to taking 10 grams of vitamin C by I.V., but here are some examples of products or protocols that can literally extend life and "buy time" for more potent treatments to work, leading to a higher probability of success!! You do not need to take all of these treatments, but pick at least one plus any others you feel will support your treatment. Cellect By a huge, huge margin, the number one recommended supplement to "buy time" is Cellect. It is a powder that can be mixed with certain types of fruit juices (to kill the horrible taste). Use one of the Maxi-Blend powders. Cellect has been shown to "buy time" for even super-advanced cancer patients in hospice! It is actually at the heart of one of the main Stage IV treatments mentioned below, but if you are not on that treatment (the Cellect-Budwig Protocol), you need to add Cellect to your protocol in most cases. Cellect is a super-nutrient product that literally revives the non-cancerous cells, giving the cancer treatment much more time to deal with the cancer cells. However, if you are on Protocel(R), Entlev(R), Paw Paw or graviola (e.g. the Amazon Factor Protocol), do NOT take Cellect. These types of treatments lower ATP energy (in the mitochondria) whereas Cellect will raise ATP energy, thus offsetting these treatments. Another treatment which Cellect should not be added to is the Cesium Chloride Protocol of Essense of Life. Essense of Life has a similar product called Essense (yes, that is the way it is spelled), which can take the place of Cellect. If you use Cellect for your "buy time" treatment, build up to at least four to eight scoops of the powder a day with whatever primary cancer treatment you are using. Use even more scoops for fast-growing cancers and cancers which have spread extensively. Note #1: Cellect should NOT be used with hydrazine sulphate because Cellect contains amino acids which should not be used with hydrazine sulphate. Note #2: For those who are very weak from their cancer treatment or their cancer and are not on hydrazine sulphate, Cellect is a REQUIRED supplement. It provides a huge boost in energy. Also, one of the super-nutrient juices, discussed later, is also a REQUIREMENT. Note #3: Cellect may not be an option for those being fed through a feeding tube or by I.V. A liquid super-mineral supplement is an excellent substitute. The product is called Vibe (liquid). Here is a vendor: Vibe Liquid Vendor - http://www.potentliquidsupplement.com/ Here is the website where Cellect can be purchased (Maxi-Blend powder): Cellect.org Website - http://www.cellect.org DMSO - Vitamin C Protocol Like the Pauling-Cameron protocol, this protocol also uses 10 grams of Vitamin C a day. However, this protocol is designed very differently than the PaulingCameron protocol. This treatment was designed by a cancer researcher to do several things. First, it is designed to revert some cancer cells into normal cells. Second, it is designed to slow the spread of cancer. Third, it is designed to "buy time" by providing key nutrients to the non-cancerous cells. This is a research treatment of the Independent Cancer Research Foundation, Inc., however, it is perfectly safe and uses doses and substances which have a vast, vast history of absolute safety at the recommended doses. DMSO - Vitamin C Protocol - http://www.new-cancer-treatment.org/ The Super-Nutrient Juices The super-nutrient fruit juices will add minerals and a lot of key phytonutrients and other nutrients, including glucose. For advanced cancer patients whose non- cancerous cells have been stressed and weakened, one or more of these juices are required. Get out of the mentality of only thinking about the cancer cells. You need to always be thinking about both the cancer cells and the non-cancerous cells. Rather than give one product, several will be listed. The patient can pick and choose from these brands of products, or they may find another super-nutrient product or another brand of juice. The important thing is to flood the body with highly dense super-foods or super-supplements: 1) Tahitian Noni Juice, 2) XanGo Mangosteen, 3) Berry Young Juice, from Young Living (wolfberry or Goji juice) These, and similar products, are usually sold through Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) and are usually available locally. Important Warning: Due to the fact that many cancer patients have liver damage, frequently due to chemotherapy, and due to the fact that high doses of these super-fruit juices have been known to contribute to liver damage due to their detoxification properties; doses of these three products, COMBINED, should not exceed 3 or 4 ounces a day. Those who already have liver damage should avoid these products and should use a coffee enema several times a day. Important Note: You may have noticed that the super-fruit juices above (mangosteen, noni and wolfberry juice) are not allowed on the Robert O. Young diet because they contain too much glucose. Actually, these super-fruit juices are all right for a cancer patient. The intent of the Robert O. Young diet is to force a person to avoid foods that feed the cancer cells. The super-fruit juices "feed" the cancer cells with things that can kill them and also protect the non-cancerous cells. BOTH the dense mineral supplement (e.g. Cellect or Essense) and a supernutrient fruit juice are required for any advanced cancer patient, with few exceptions. The Budwig Diet, Plus Fish Oil The Budwig Diet, consisting of organic cottage cheese and flaxseed oil, is the cure for type 2 diabetes. One type 2 diabetes patient started on the Budwig Diet, but quit the treatment within a few weeks because she gained so much weight!! The point to this true story is that the Budwig Diet has high quality oils that will provide an energy boost to the non-cancerous cells of a weak cancer patient. The Cellect-Budwig Protocol and the Bill Henderson Protocol both include the Budwig Diet. The Cellect-Budwig also adds fish oils so the cells get the critical long-chain good fats. No matter what treatment you are on, this is a good treatment to help rebuild the non-cancerous cells. Here is an article on this protocol: The Budwig Diet - http://www.cancertutor.com/Cancer/Budwig.html Anti-Fungal Supplement If you read the article on cancer theory, you know that the final step to getting cancer is that a microbe is able to get inside a normal cell and block the Krebs Cycle and Electron Transport Chain, thus turning the cell anaerobic (i.e. cancerous) and highly acidic (via mycotoxins). Almost all cancer patients have severe microbe infections. It is critical to kill as many microbes as possible as part of your treatment. The preferred treatment to do this during a cancer treatment is the Chlorine Dioxide - DMSO Protocol. Chlorine dioxide is the supplement which cured 75,000 malaria patients. However, chlorine dioxide is neutralized by many alternative cancer treatments, including those which use Cellect or Essense, among many others. For this reason, to deal with fungal infections a person should use the old standby colloidal silver. Here is an article on colloidal silver, the best alternative to chlorine dioxide: Colloidal Silver article - http://www.cancertutor.com/Cancer02/CSilver.html Vitalzym and Barley Power One of the products in almost all alternative cancer treatment protocols is proteolytic enzymes. Their value in treating cancer was known about more than 50 years ago. Almost everyone uses them because they strip the enzyme coatings around cancer cells which allows the immune system to identify and kill the cancer cells. But remember from above, these enzymes are also blood thinners. However, there is also a second type of enzyme supplement: the broad-spectrum enzyme supplement. One such product is called Barley Power, which has practically every important enzyme on earth in it. One of the many key enzymes in barley (and fresh wheatgrass juice) is the critical Cytochrome Oxidase enzyme which is essential for cell energy. Barley Power is an organic "green" product that is cold-processed. The bottom line is that every cancer patient, on any treatment, should use Barley Power (or fresh wheatgrass juice). This product does not have high levels of the proteolytic enzymes, thus it is not a blood thinner. However, it may contain Vitamin K, so there may be limits to how much you should take. Use the vendor's maximum dosage. Here is their website: http://www.barleypower.com/ The combination of a proteolytic enzyme supplement (such as Vitalzym) and the broad-spectrum enzyme supplement is very potent! Here is a source for both products: Vitalzym and Barley Power Vendors – http://www.natural-product.info/Products01/Vitalzym.html The "Stage III Supplements and Treatments Stage III alternative cancer treatments do not kill nearly as many cancer cells as a Stage IV alternative cancer treatment. Thus, the Stage III treatments can actually be used to "buy time" for the Stage IV treatments to work. For a lot of ideas about using Stage III alternative cancer treatment protocols see the "Stage III" Treatment article. However, if you plan on adding a "Stage III" treatment to your "Stage IV" Protocol, ask your vendor if there are any conflicts (by the way, don't bug your vendor too much, they are very busy people, group your questions into one call or email). Here is the "Stage III" Treatment article: Stage III Treatment Article - http://www.cancertutor.com/Other/RuleOfThumb.html Ideas For Those Who Cannot Take Supplements For ideas about what cancer patients who cannot eat can do to treat their cancer, see: For Cancer Patients Who Cannot Eat Whole Foods http://www.cancertutor.com/Other02/CannotEat.html Cardinal Rule #2: Always Have At Least One True "Stage IV" Alternative Cancer Treatment in Your Protocol Many times people have sent me the alternative cancer treatment they have designed, either for themselves or someone they are caring for. The FIRST thing I do when looking at their protocol is to look for a true "Stage IV" alternative cancer treatment (i.e. usually one of those discussed on this page). Without at least one true "Stage IV" treatment the person is not likely to progress in their treatment. One of the greatest mistakes a cancer patient (who designs their own treatment) makes is to not have a true "Stage IV" treatment in their protocol. To understand this, you should understand that you cannot put out a major house fire with 10 garden hoses. You need at least one fire hose and several garden hoses. With cancer you need at least one fire hose, the "Stage IV" treatment. However, it is equally important NOT to combine two "Stage IV" treatments at the same time, except in a clinic setting. This is because each of the "Stage IV" treatments kills the maximum amount of cancer cells which the body can handle. To double the number of cancer cells killed would far exceed the safe number of cancer cells that are killed. The body simply cannot handle that much debris. Killing cancer cells is not the problem for alternative cancer treatments because the potent alternative cancer treatments target cancer cells and are capable of killing as many cancer cells as they wish to kill. The problem is safely killing cancer cells! Dangers can be found in killing too many cancer cells too fast or in situations where temporary inflammation and swelling are created. A complete protocol for treating cancer will include several things, such as detoxifying agents, immune builders, protecting the liver, etc. This may include one or more Stage III treatments, etc. But a complete protocol will include EXACTLY ONE "Stage IV" treatment. There is one glaring exception to not combining "Stage IV" treatments. Hydrazine sulphate is a substance which is for exceptionally weak cancer patients. Whenever a cancer patient has lost their appetite due to their cancer, hydrazine sulphate should be studied. Because hydrazine sulfate (H.S.) does not kill cancer cells, it can be used with any other treatment. The only endorsed vendor of hydrazine sulphate is Essense of Life, the Cesium Chloride / DMSO vendor. However, there are many rules associated with using hydrazine sulfate and this article needs to be studied very carefully: Using Hydrazine Sulphate - The Cachexia Treatment http://www.cancertutor.com/Cancer/Hydrazine.html Cardinal Rule #3: The Cancer Treatment Can Only Be as Potent as the "Cancer Diet" A good cancer diet will not only help the non-cancerous cells it can also "starve" the cancer cells. A bad cancer diet can "feed" the cancer cells!! As I say many times on this website, fighting cancer is like fighting a fire. While there are several very potent alternative cancer treatments, NONE OF THEM can fight some kinds of fast spreading cancers without major outside help. Where does that outside help come from: a highly alkaline diet!! Cancer simply cannot survive, thrive and spread in a highly alkaline environment. It is your cancer diet that really controls the "inner terrain" of your body and how hard your cancer will be able to fight. A bad cancer diet during a cancer treatment will FEED the cancer cells. It is like spraying a house fire with both water [the treatment] and gasoline [the bad diet that feeds the cancer cells]. A mediocre cancer diet will not feed the cancer cells, but it won't contribute to the treatment. While a strong cancer diet is critical for every cancer patient, it is especially critical to have a strong cancer diet when the patient has a fast-spreading cancer. A strong "cancer diet" can stop the spreading of cancer faster than anything else. Too many cancer patients lose their battle with cancer because the cancer spreads too fast and the treatment, even though the best there was, couldn't keep up with the battle. The only thing that will control a fast spreading cancer is a superb cancer diet plus a superb treatment. If you are serious about surviving a very dangerous type of cancer, such as a glioblastoma or pancreatic cancer, etc, then you have no choice but to use your cancer diet as a major tool in your treatment. PERIOD!! Having said all of this, cancer patients who are extremely weak from their cancer treatment or their cancer should eat whatever it takes to get their strength and energy back, even meat (but NOT sugar). Be careful with vendor-designed cancer diets. Make sure their cancer diet is as strong as one of these two cancer diets. Your first option is the Brandt Grape Cure. Grapes are alkaline. Grapes are also a superb detox substance. This cancer diet is also a "Stage IV" cancer treatment by itself, however, the Brandt Grape Cure is not powerful enough to treat very advanced cancer patients. But is can be used to support (as the cancer diet) the treatments that are strong enough for very advanced cancer patients. Generally, you cannot combine two Stage IV cancer treatments. However, the Brandt Grape cure is such a superb detox that you can use it with any of the other Stage IV treatments. The Brandt Grape Cure can be used as the "cancer diet" with cesium chloride, the Bill Henderson Protocol, or almost any other alternative cancer treatment (e.g. NOT the LifeOne Protocol). See this article: Brandt Grape Cure (as the cancer diet) http://www.cancertutor.com/Cancer/GrapeCure.html Your second option is the Robert O. Young alkaline diet. Here is an article that will introduce you to the diet, but the ultimate source is the book Sick and Tired? Reclaim Your Inner Terrain, by Robert O. Young, PhD. Use his 100% solution, NOT his 80% solution (e.g. if a vegetable has a significant amount of glucose in it - don't eat it unless it is part of the treatment!!) Simple Version of Robert O. Young Diet http://www.cancertutor.com/AltTreatments/Alt_Diet.html As noted in the above cancer diet article, do not eat too high a percentage of green vegetables! Green vegetables are high in Vitamin K and can cause blood clotting, such as strokes. You can use the above article to begin your cancer diet, but when you get the time, you need to read the book. Cardinal Rule #4: Work With an Expert When you go to a clinic that uses alternative cancer treatments, by definition you are working with an expert. This is always the ideal, but it is rarely possible because insurance companies do not pay for alternative cancer treatments. The best clinics in the world are in Europe. Germany has the highest concentration of world-class clinics. They range in price from $20,000 to $25,000 and up. For those with brain cancer (e.g. glioblastoma, medulloblastoma, etc.), NonHodgkins Lymphoma, an adenocarcinoma of the colon or any type of sarcoma, one of the best clinics in North America is the Camelot Cancer Care Clinic in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Their cost is only about $10,000, which includes lodging. For other types of cancer, if you want to stay in North America, the Oasis of Hope Clinic in Mexico is an excellent choice. They use treatments which are illegal in the United States because they are so effective. However, you better be prepared to pay $25,000 or more for their treatment. And don't forget no insurance company will pay a dime of the treatment. See this article for clinics inside and outside of the U.S.: Clinics Webpage - http://www.cancertutor.com/Other/Clinics.html It should also be noted that some excellent clinics want to "stay under the radar" of the FDA, thus they do not want websites such as this one mentioning them. Most cancer patients can only afford several hundred dollars a month for a treatment. This means the patient will have to depend on telephone or email support. It is critical to work with an expert. An expert will likely have prior experience with a case similar to yours. Their treatment for a situation like yours may have evolved over the years as they have learned about new treatments and new methods. In short, do not design your own alternative cancer treatment. Generally your expert will be the person who is selling you your "Stage IV" treatment products. These experts are one of the main criteria for my choice of the "Stage IV" treatments. If you want to use a "Stage IV" treatment, but for some reason cannot or will not work with the vendor this website mentions, use Google to try and find another vendor. I have made every effort to find the best of the best for each treatment, but in some cases it was a tough choice, meaning someone else was not far behind the person I chose. I do not like to list two vendors for the same treatment because then people will pester both vendors with questions trying to make up their mind which vendor to use. These people are very busy so I usually only list one of the vendors. For some treatments there is only one vendor for the major product. Cardinal Rule #5: How NOT To Combine Protocols Suppose you are researching the Internet and you see four cancer protocols which look interesting. We will call them: Protocol #1 - 5 items Protocol #2 - 4 items Protocol #3 - 5 items Protocol #4 - 6 items I cannot tell you how many times I have seen someone design their own protocol by picking one of the items from each protocol. WRONG!! This is absolutely the wrong thing to do. What you need to do is pick ONE of the COMPLETE protocols (i.e. ALL of the items in one of the protocols) and use that protocol as your main protocol. Note that I said to include ALL of the items in that protocol!! Then, if you want to add items to this one COMPLETE protocol, you can research whether items taken from other protocols are safe and effective to add to your main protocol. Protocols are put together to be synergistic. When you do not use a complete protocol you may be missing a major part of your treatment. That is why you need to have a baseline protocol of at least one complete protocol. Then you can ADD to that protocol, but do not take anything away from it. Cardinal Rule #6: Using Stage IV Treatments In Sequence In some cases, even advanced cancer patients can take care of their cancer with a single treatment. However, sometimes a cancer patient is in such dire condition that it is necessary to use several "Stage IV" cancer treatments in sequence, meaning one after the other. Here is just one example. Suppose a cancer patient has a fast-growing pancreatic cancer that has already spread to their bones. Here is a sequence they might go with: First, go to a clinic that uses ozone I.V. to start killing the cancer cells immediately, then Second, AFTER finishing at the clinic, they go with the Cesium Chloride / DMSO Protocol to start protecting their bones with key minerals, until their vendor tells them they have reached their 'cesium limit', then Third, AFTER reaching their 'cesium limit', they go with Cellect-Budwig for an additional year. During this year they should continue to take the bone-building minerals which are part of the cesium chloride treatment. Fourth, they go on the Remission Treatment for one or two years. Notice that these treatments are used in sequence. The main cancer treatment should usually last at least a year!! However, since some treatments last a very short time (e.g. the Brandt Grape Cure for 6 weeks at a time, etc.), it may be necessary to use several treatments in sequence before starting the remission treatment. Cardinal Rule #7: Break the Mental Cycle of Depression, Anger and/or Fear While the cancer patient himself or herself is ultimately responsible for their cancer treatment, there are some things only the family and friends of the cancer patient can do. That "thing" is to insure the cancer patient does not lose hope and to remove in their minds all possible fear and anger related to the cancer. It is absolutely essential to break the cycle of depression, anger and/or fear. To do this the cancer patient must make major changes in their mental attitude. Dr. Lorraine Day says to forgive your enemies, researcher Lothar Hirneise says to take a major trip or move. Some of the German cancer clinics use "Art Therapy" to get the patient's mind off of their cancer and get their mind on being creative. Whether you take them on a trip, teach them a new craft, or whatever it takes, there is a high correlation between breaking the mental cycle and the ability of the body to cure the cancer. Family participation in helping break this mental and/or spiritual cycle is important. However, it should be emphasized that the family can do as much damage as be helpful. The entire family needs to know what is going on, and support the actions of the patient, even if they don't believe in alternative medicine. There is NO room for naysayers around cancer patients!! For example, putting the cancer patient in a natural treatment clinic in Germany, or moving the patient to another state, is one way to get rid of the naysayers. Cardinal Rule #8: Measure, Measure, Measure Your Progress!! Why do you have a gas gauge in your car? The gas gauge is an "early warning" system to measure how much gas is in your tank in order to warn you when you are about to run out of gas. Likewise, if a cancer patient is using a cancer protocol which is not working, the cancer patient needs an "early warning" system so they know as early as possible that their chosen cancer treatment is not strong enough for their situation. Almost all cancer patients, or their caregiver, custom designs their treatment. As mentioned above, their treatment will usually have exactly ONE Stage IV treatment and this treatment may be supplemented by Hydrazine Sulphate (for cachexia) or a frequency generator (for a myriad of reasons), a strong "cancer diet," special supplements, etc. etc. During treatment, it is critical to know whether your chosen protocol is strong enough to win your battle against cancer. If it is not strong enough, the sooner you know it is not strong enough, the quicker you can make adjustments in your protocol!!! But there is another very important reason for measuring how well your treatment is working: Are you using the right doses of supplements and are you implementing the treatment correctly? For example, you may be using the perfect protocol for your situation, but you may not be taking the right doses of a key product or you may be taking a supplement which is negating a more important supplement in your treatment. The sooner you know your treatment is not strong enough (or something is wrong with the way you are taking the protocol) the better your chance of survival!! While a P.E.T. Scan will measure your progress, a PET Scan is like having a hundred X-Rays and having that many X-Rays is definitely not good for a cancer patient. There are also many different "protein" counters, such as the CA-125. The problem with counting proteins is that they are generally VERY POOR measures of progress. Alternative cancer treatments are not designed to lower protein counts!!! Plus, there are many factors that determine how many key proteins there are in a cancer patient's body. For example, existing proteins may not be flushed out of the body even if you are winning your battle against cancer. The answer to measuring your progress is a simple and inexpensive urine test called the Navarro Urine test. The Navarro Urine test was designed by the late Dr. Navarro of the Philippines and is now administered by his son, who is also a medical doctor in the Philippines. It is a urine test which returns to you a number, generally between 50 and 60. A '49' means you no longer have cancer (statistically speaking). A '50' or above means you do have cancer (statistically speaking). The test, including shipping, only costs about $75. As a rule of thumb, a 56 or a 57 is typical of a very advanced cancer patient (see the note below for exceptions). Starting when you begin your first major alternative cancer treatment you need to determine exactly how much cancer there is in your body. The result of the first time you take a Navarro test is called the "1st Navarro number." The result of the second time (6 or 8 weeks later) you take a Navarro test is called the "2nd Navarro number. The 2nd Navarro number is compared to the 1st Navarro number to see if the Navarro number has gone down, stayed the same or gone up. Your 3rd Navarro number is compared to your 2nd Navarro number. Your 4th Navarro number is compared to your 3rd Navarro number. And so on. Every 6 or 8 weeks you take another Navarro urine test. The purpose of comparing these consecutive numbers is that from time to time during your treatment you must know whether your treatment is working and whether you are getting better or you are getting worse. If you are getting worse, you need to immediately change your protocol or fix the way you are doing your current protocol. The solution in your case may be to be more fanatical about your "cancer diet" or maybe you are not taking a high enough dose of one of the key supplements. Or maybe your protocol is simply too weak for your situation. This is How To Measure Whether Your Treatment Is Working!! The way to determine whether your treatment is working or not is to compare consecutive Navarro numbers as described above. If your Navarro Number has gone up (e.g. your 3rd Navarro number is larger than your 2nd Navarro number), then your treatment is not strong enough for your situation and you need to immediately re-evaluate your current treatment or change your primary treatment!! If your Navarro number has gone down, then the treatment is working as advertised and keep doing what you are doing. If your Navarro number stays the same, you may want to give the treatment another 6 to 8 weeks or you may decide to change your protocol or switch to a different primary treatment. The real purpose of this methodology is to catch an increase in the Navarro number quickly. If the Navarro number goes up by more than 0.2 points, that is the real purpose for the test. If it goes up by more than 0.2 points it means your treatment is simply not strong enough for your situation and you need to immediately make a significant change in your overall protocol in most situations (Note: some protocols are cumulative in nature, such as cesium chloride, Protocel, Cantron, etc., thus it may be normal for the treatment to take more than 8 weeks to see an improvement in the Navarro number). You take the test every 6 or 8 weeks until your Navarro number is below 50 or below 51. Then you can go on a strong remission treatment when your protocol is completed. But even after you are in "remission" you need to have your Navarro number taken every 3 or 4 months for a year, then every six months after that. You need to know whether the cancer is "creeping up!!" In fact, even people who do not have cancer should take a Navarro test once a year to make sure cancer is not creeping up on them (are you paying attention caregivers?). A friend of mine died the day after he was diagnosed with cancer because he had no clue he had cancer (or he ignored the clues) until it was far too late. Important Note: While the Navarro number is usually between 50 and 57, for certain kinds of cancer the number can be over a thousand. You need to look at the instructions. But whatever your number is to begin with, it is the CHANGE in the number which is important. If you have a type of cancer where the Navarro number is above 80, then you will have to determine for yourself how to gauge your progress. Here is information about how to take the Navarro Urine test: How To Determine How Much Cancer You Have (Navarro Urine test) http://www.new-cancer-treatments.org/Articles/Determine.html Cardinal Rule #9: Keep Doing Your Homework Here is your homework - memorize these cardinal rules!! The order of these cardinal rules is not important, but all of them are essential. When you go to a medical doctor you are paying him or her to do your homework for you. But medical doctors are not allowed to use alternative cancer treatments, thus you must do your homework unless you can afford an alternative cancer treatment clinic. Chapter 5 - The Stage IV Treatments This chapter is a listing, with detailed comments, of the "Stage IV" alternative cancer treatments. These are the crown jewels of alternative cancer treatments for advanced cancer patients. Introduction Of the 400+ alternative cancer treatments, only a few are rated "Stage IV" treatments, meaning they give an advanced cancer patient real hope for survival. Obviously, their chance of survival depends heavily on their condition at the start of the treatment. However, families who are accustomed to dealing with orthodox cancer treatments frequently have no clue how fast-acting and powerful the best of the alternative cancer treatments really are. Thus, it is common for a family to underestimate the power of the alternative cancer treatments and thus underestimate the chances for a cancer patient to survive. Read ALL of the treatment articles linked to in this section at least twice before making a decision as to which treatment to use. There are advantages and disadvantages to each treatment. Also, later in this article (Chapter 7) there are discussions or links to articles for specific types of cancer. Read any of the "type of cancer" articles (e.g. lung cancer, brain cancer, etc.) which apply to your situation. If, after reading about each treatment twice, and each applicable "type of cancer article," you still cannot decide on which treatment to use, then pick the default treatment: the Cellect-Budwig Protocol. This protocol has been shown to be effective on every type of cancer it has been used on and it does not cause any type of swelling or inflammation. This does not mean, however, that it is the best treatment for every situation. For those who cannot afford any of these treatments, there is an article on inexpensive treatments which is linked to in the side-bar. Here are the Stage IV treatments: The Cellect-Budwig Protocol This treatment was designed to do two key things. First, it was designed to start protecting the non-cancerous cells very, very quickly. Second, it was designed to get rid of cancer cells without creating any kind of inflammation or swelling. In other words, this treatment was designed with very advanced cancer patients in mind. As an added bonus, this treatment usually shrinks tumors significantly within several weeks. Both the Cellect powder and the Budwig Diet help protect the non-cancerous cells. Fish oil capsules come with the Cellect. This treatment is highly recommended for lung cancer patients and brain cancer patients, but it works well on every kind of cancer it has been used on. Cost: About $400 a month, depending on doses. Advantages: Works very fast and does not cause any type of inflammation or swelling. It can be used with chemotherapy. Disadvantages: Perhaps the worst news is that this treatment is so good at detoxification that a coffee enema is frequently necessary. It is not as difficult to do as you might think. Coffee enemas were used by Gerson, Kelley, and many other top practitioners. Working With an Expert For This Treatment Mike Vrentas is the alternative cancer researcher who put together the CellectBudwig Protocol. While Mike does consultations for a very modest one-time consultation fee of $150, because of his limited time he has developed a set of audio CDs. These CDs include the offical and complete protocol. His CD set is currently only available by download and ONLY if you have broadband. It will soon be available on CD. To see an overview of the protocol: Cellect-Budwig Protocol - http://www.cancertutor.com/Cancer02/Cellect_Budwig.html To see a 7 minute video about his audio book: Your Road to Health - Cellect/Budwig and More - http://www.cellectbudwig.com/ The Cesium Chloride / DMSO Protocol (i.e. the Essense of Life Protocol) This treatment has been around for more than 30 years. It is the most flexible treatment and has the overall best long-term track record of any other alternative cancer treatment. It can be taken through the skin (e.g. for those on feeding tubes) or in some cases it can be taken orally. It can be taken by those still on chemotherapy (in some cases it is synergistic with chemotherapy), and so on. This is the required treatment for those with bone cancer (unless another type of cancer takes precedence). This treatment generally starts working as fast as any other treatment protocol. It is also excellent at shrinking tumors quickly. It also deals with the causes of many types of pain. Another advantage to this protocol is that a more generous "cancer diet" is allowed because the cesium chloride and potassium block glucose from getting inside the cancer cells. This means more foods with glucose are allowed on this treatment. The expanded "cancer diet" allows patients to have more nutritious foods during their treatment. Also, for cachexia patients it should be noted that when using cesium chloride, ATP can be used to block cachexia (ATP converts lactic acid into glucose, thus taking a large burden off the liver). When doing this cachexia is blocked two different ways (the second way is that cesium chloride blocks the cancer cells from making lactic acid). ATP also increases the energy of weak cancer patients almost immediately. Also, for those with cachexia the recommended vendor for this protocol also sells the best hydrazine sulfate product available in the U.S. For those outside of the U.S. any compound pharmacist can make hydrazine sulfate. H.S. is critical because it blocks the cachexia cycle or lactic acid cycle at the liver. In fact, ANY cancer patient who has cachexia (i.e. they have lost their appetite) should contact Essense of Life for hydrazine sulfate!! This is absolutely critical!!! Getting back to cesium chloride, this treatment is critical to alternative medicine because many oncologists are keeping cancer patients on chemotherapy and radiation far longer than they used to, thus there is a growing need for treatments that do not require the ability to consume and digest large numbers of supplements. It is absolutely essential to use the remission treatment when your vendor tells you to quit taking the cesium chloride (i.e. your vendor has decided you have reached your "cesium limit"). This is because you may hit your "cesium limit" before all of your cancer cells are removed. Cost: Between $600 and $900 up front, and between $300 and $400 per month for refills. Newer technologies, when necessary, may add to this cost. Advantages: Works fast, very long-proven treatment and a vendor with extensive experience with a wide range of situations. This treatment can be taken with chemotherapy. Disadvantages: Perhaps the biggest disadvantage is that this treatment may cause some temporary swelling and inflammation. For most situations, this is not a problem, but for some kinds of cancer, especially brain cancer or lung cancer, this can be an issue. When swelling may be an issue, the vendor may suggest lower doses of cesium chloride or may suggest adding another supplement designed to reduce inflammation and swelling. Working With an Expert For This Treatment While there are several people who sell cesium chloride, Larry of Essense of Life clearly has the most experience with the most kinds of cancer. If you purchase your materials from him the consultations are free. Here is his website for contact information (leave your phone number): Essense Of Life Website - http://www.essense-of-life.com/ The LifeOne Protocol of Dr. Howenstine, M.D. This protocol uses a very effective product called LifeOne as its main treatment. Dr. Howenstine M.D., was trained in America, but now lives in Costa Rica. He generally works with cancer patients by telephone. He can work with all kinds of cancers using the LifeOne product and other substances as needed. If a person has not had chemotherapy or radiation, LifeOne works unusually quickly in patients with hepatoma, ovarian cancer, squamous cell cancer, cervical cancer, colon cancer, prostate cancer, lymphoma and pancreatic cancer. These patients may feel better in 2 weeks and can be much better in 4 to 6 weeks. For patients who have had chemotherapy and/or radiation, the treatment takes longer to become effective and other supplements are needed. One thing to note is that if you have any concerns about your local doctor's diagnosis, or if you have a type of cancer which involves hormone issues, male or female, then this is the treatment you should use! Dr. Howenstine is an expert in these issues and also consults with other experts in these fields. LifeOne Protocol - http://www.cancertutor.com/Cancer03/Howenstine.html Cost: Unknown. Advantages: Has been in use for more than two years so it has a long track record by the standards of avante guarde alternative cancer treatments. Disadvantages: While it would be nice to work with Dr. Howenstine face-to-face, and this is possible if you wish to travel to Costa Rica, he is used to working with cancer patients over the phone. Working With an Expert For This Treatment Contact Dr. Howenstine by email, but he is not a typist, so simply give your telephone number, country or state, time zone and a little about your cancer. Costa Rica is in the Mountain Time Zone. He charges by the hour and uses a telephone service which is very inexpensive. [email protected] Bill Henderson Protocol Like the Cellect-Budwig Protocol, the Bill Henderson treatment is based on the Budwig Protocol. The Bill Henderson Protocol does not cause nearly as much inflammation and swelling as other treatments, if it creates any at all. Like the Cellect-Budwig Protocol, it is a critical treatment of choice for just this reason. Once the Budwig Diet is started it likely will need to be continued for life, except at lower than theraputic doses. This is actually a good thing because the Budwig helps prevent Alzheimers, type 2 diabetes, heart disease and a host of other diseases. Like all good alternative cancer treatments, the Bill Henderson protocol includes an extremely rigid diet that the cancer patient must follow! Also, Bill has studied many different brands of supplements, it is absolutely critical to use the brands he recommends (he does not sell any supplements or receive any commissions). Bill Henderson's complete protocol can be found in chapter 5 of his book: Cancer-Free - Your Guide to Gentle, Non-Toxic Healing. It is available as an eBook on his website (if you need it immediately) or on Amazon. Bill Henderson's Book - http://5912c-oi6ozdst1ouvzufgtmdi.hop.clickbank.net/ For those on a tight budget, this treatment is the least expensive of all of the "Stage IV" treatments. Cost: Less than $175 a month (Bill Henderson does not sell any of the products). Advantages: There are really two key things which treat the cancer. First, the cancer diet. Second, the Budwig protocol. The cancer diet works very quickly to start treating the cancer. The cancer diet, and the supplements, "buy time" for the rest of the treatment. It causes little or no inflammation or swelling. Disadvantages: Perhaps the biggest disadvantage of this treatment is that it cannot be combined with many other alternative cancer treatments (e.g. cesium chloride) because of a potential conflict with the actions of the Budwig Diet. Do not add anything to the Bill Henderson Protocol without his approval (and don't bug him to death either, read his book). Working With an Expert For This Treatment Bill Henderson has worked with more than three thousand cancer patients. He charges a modest one time fee for telephone consulations. Here is Bill's website: Bill Henderson Website - http://5912c-oi6ozdst1ouvzufgtmdi.hop.clickbank.net/ Frequency Generators (aka "Rife Machines") Frequency generators are designed to revert cancer cells into normal cells. Frequency generators are the only "Stage IV" cancer treatment which safely revert cancer cells into normal cells. The significance of this is that frequency generators work quickly, they do not create debris from dead cancer cells, and they do not create any inflammation and swelling. Because they are safe electromedicine devices, they can be used on multiple cancer patients (but NOT during the same session). In the 1930s a microbiologist, Dr. Royal Rife, discovered that cancer was caused by a microbe. Dr. Rife did many, many experiments to prove his theory. He also was well aware that the key microbe that needed to be killed was inside of the cancer cells. In other words, Dr. Rife proved that if this microbe which caused cancer could be killed inside the cancer cell, the cell would be able to revert into a normal cell. Dr. Rife then developed an "electromedicine" treatment for cancer which was designed to do one thing and one thing only - kill the microbes inside the cancer cells. His theory was correct and on 16 terminal cancer patients he had a 100% cure rate. His "Rife Machine" was actually a frequency generator which had two key frequencies. One frequency was to vibrate the microbes to death and the second frequency was to "carry" the other frequencies past the cell wall (of the cancer cells) so that the first frequency could kill the microbes inside the cancer cells. The American Medical Association (AMA) tried everything they could to shut down Dr. Rife. They failed. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) then proceeded to shut down his clinic and take his equipment (though he had sold almost a dozen machines prior to being shut down). While there were many attempts to replicate his success, it took over 70 years to duplicate his success. In May of 2009 this website posted the first successful protocol for treating cancer with a frequency generator since the 1930s. This protocol was the result of many years of a great deal of research and experimentation by many people. This protocol, while strong enough to be a primary cancer treatment can also be used as a secondary or supplemental cancer treatment because it only deals with reverting cancer cells into normal cells (i.e. it doesn't kill any additional cancer cells). While every cancer patient can benefit from frequency generators, there are some situations for which frequency generators are critical: 1) The patient cannot digest foods (usually due to stomach or colon surgery), 2) The patient cannot extract nutrients from foods (usually due to chemotherapy), 3) The patient has a very fast growing cancer, 4) The cancer has spread throughout the body, 5) The patient has cancer in their bones or bone marrow, 6) Their type of cancer involves massive infections (e.g. uterine cancer), 7) They have significant cachexia (i.e. lactic acid problems). These are situations where diet and supplements may not be enough to deal with the cancer!! What electromedicine provides patients in these situations is an "outside" source of safely getting rid of cancer cells without causing any swelling and inflammation. The article on frequency generators goes into a great deal of detail in explaining the theory behind why this treatment is so important for almost all situations. Cost: About $2,400 One Time Charge Note: The cost of this device is actually less than most highly potent alternative cancer treatments, but because it is paid in a lump sum, it may appear to be more expensive than other protocols. Note also that this device can be used over and over. Advantages: Because it does not cause any type of swelling and because it does not neutralize or interfere with any other Stage IV protocol (except the cesium chloride protocol), it can supercharge any of the other "Stage IV" protocols (except the cesium chloride protocol). Disadvantages: It takes about 2 hours a day to use this protocol, however, it does not require a caregiver because a cancer patient can easily operate the device by himself or herself. Because it does create electroporation, a block of 5 hours is necessary where no other treatments (orthodox or alternative) can be taken (this 5 hour block includes the 2 hours the device is used). It cannot be used by those still using daily chemotherapy and it can only be used sparingly by those still on any chemotherapy!! Because this device does not strengthen non-cancerous cells, when it is the primary treatment it requires foods and supplements to help protect the non-cancerous cells. Working With an Expert For This Treatment As mentioned in the main article for frequency generators, the FDA has been persecuting frequency generators since the 1930s. Their tactics now include forcing frequency generator manufacturers and vendors to say absolutely nothing about the health benefits of frequency generators. For this reason, the Independent Cancer Research Foundation, Inc. provides support for this protocol (see the article). Here is an article on this protocol: Frequency Generator Protocol (aka "Rife Machine") http://www.cancertutor.com/Cancer03/FreqGenerators.html Tony Isaacs Oleander Protocol I have been watching the development of oleander for several years. For a long time you had to make a oleander soup at home, using oleander plants. But now safe oleander pills are available!! Due to the massive research efforts of Tony Isaacs, and several others, oleander has slowly climbed to a Stage IV level cancer treatment. A cancer patient no longer has to make the product at home and a reliable and inexpensive vendor is available. The product comes out of South Africa because it is also used as a cure for AIDS. In addition to poisoning cancer cells, oleander also helps treat cancer in these ways: Tremendous immune boosting ability (six times that of the strongest patented immune stimulators) Inhibition of angiogenesis (the growth of tumors) Inhibition of the NF-kB factor in cancer cells Induction of apoptosis, or normal cell death, in cancer cells, and Induction and enhancement of autophagic cancer cell death (which was tested against pancreatic cancer cells) In addition, oleander does potentiate chemotherapy and radiation when used as a CAM therapy. It either eliminates or greatly lessens ALL known side effects of chemo and lessens those of radiation (with the lone exception being hair loss when the chemo drug of choice is Cisplatin). In many cases, a caregiver of a cancer patient wants to put a cancer patient on an alternative cancer treatment, but the cancer patient refuses. Most alternative cancer treatments cannot be disguised. One of the interesting things about the oleander protocol is that a cancer patient can take this treatment without even knowing they are taking a potent alternative cancer treatment! The oleander pills can be added without the cancer patient even realizing it. Cost: About $60 a month for the main product. Advantages: Can be used with chemo and radiation. Very inexpensive. After years of research it is now a highly stable and very effective treatment. Disadvantages: Does require the cancer patient, or their caregiver, to study the Tony Isaacs book (about $15). This treatment does not treat the non-cancerous cells, thus other protocols must be added for advanced cancer patients to protect the non-cancerous cells. For details on the treatments, and how to get the Tony Isaacs book, go to this web page: Tony Isaacs Oleander Protocol http://www.cancertutor.com/Cancer02/Oleander.html Working With an Expert For This Treatment Tony Isaacs has a Yahoo discussion group which actually has several experts which monitor it. See his article. The Brandt Grape Cure with Cellect - Using Black, Red or Purple Grapes The Brandt Grape Cure has been around since the early 1920s and was probably used in various forms for hundreds of years before that. It is the oldest cancer treatment that is still commonly used. While the original Brandt Grape Cure was strong enough for most situations, it has recently been "supercharged" with newly developed supplements and is now a true "Stage IV" protocol. The Brandt Grape Cure article (linked to in a moment) talks about two different ways to use this treatment. First, by using black, red or purple grapes to create a mush or Second, by substituting a vegetable juice for the grapes. Only the first method, using the black, red or purple grapes, is rated "Stage IV." The vegetable juice method is only rated as a Strong Stage III treatment. The Brandt Grape Cure is considered a "juice fast." What this means is that absolutely no foods or liquids (other than a quality water) are allowed to be used with this treatment. The reason for this is that when a person is on a "juice fast," the cancer cells have no source of food except for the grape mush. This is good because red, black and purple grapes contain more than a dozen cancer-killing nutrients. In other words, the only thing your cancer cells get to eat is poisonous. But grapes are healthy for non-cancerous cells. Thus, this treatment effectively targets cancer cells (i.e. it only damages cancer cells). It is not yet known whether this treatment will create any type of swelling, inflammation or congestion, so to be safe, if you would be at risk if there were significant swelling, inflammation or congestion, do not use this treatment. However, it is doubtful it does create swelling, etc. because grapes are a superb detox. An interesting thing about grape juice is that microbes cannot survive in grape juice for more than a few seconds. Whether the Brandt Grape Cure kills any microbes inside of cancer cells, allowing the cells to revert to being normal, is an unanswered question. Because of the volume of grapes you will consume, it is absolutely required that you use organic grapes. Normal grapes are notorious for having a lot of pesticides put on them. Regardless of what the Brandt Grape Cure article says, for Stage IV cancer patients they should go on the "juice fast" for 6 straight weeks. After that 6 weeks is over, the cancer patient has two options. First, eat healthy foods for two weeks, then go on the Brandt Grape Cure for another 6 weeks. Then they can go on the remission treatment. The second option is to go directly to the remission treatment, which means the Bob Beck Protocol, then the Bill Henderson Protocol, etc. See the remission article below. Cellect has been added to this protocol, mainly because the Brandt Grape Cure by itself does not appear to be as potent as it once was. Perhaps this is because the nutrients have been leeched from the soil over the decades. This is a very proven treatment and is something to seriously consider if you have the will-power, especially with the addition of Cellect. Remember, substituting vegetable juice for the grapes is not considered a "Stage IV" treatment. Cost: Free if you use only the grapes because they replace your regular food expenses. If you add Cellect it is at most $400 a month. Advantages: This treatment has been around for many decades. It comes with its own detox and is simple to use. Disadvantages: Many people cannot obtain the required organic grapes year around. An important thing to keep in mind with the treatment is that it takes 3 or 4 weeks to start to become effective. For those with an estimated 8 weeks to live, or less, this treatment may not work fast enough. For cancer patients who are extremely weak and have already lost a lot of weight, this treatment may not be the right choice because they may need a macrobiotic diet (see the "Cancer Diet" article for more information). NOT for children. Working With an Expert For This Treatment There are no vendors to support this treatment, see your orthodox medical doctor if you have symptoms not mentioned in the Brandt Grape Cure article (or simply quit the treatment). Most symptoms, however, will be harmless detox symptoms and will occur at the beginning of the treatment. Here is the article: The Brandt Grape Cure with Cellect http://www.cancertutor.com/Cancer/GrapeCure.html Ozone RHP This treatment is rarely used, probably because people do not believe that pure ozone gas can safely be injected directly into the blood stream. In other words, it is a case of bad information that keeps people from using this treatment. Or it may be that people don't want to do their own I.V. or injection at home. In any case, this treatment is not used very often. The treatment, however, is one of the rare oxygen treatments that currently can be done at home. The medical grade equipment is pricy, at $5,000 or so, but it is a valid "Stage IV" treatment. As with all "Stage IV" treatments, it is absolutely critical to follow this treatment with the remission treatment mentioned below. Cost: $5,000 up front, but this includes the pure ozone generator and daily contact with the vendor for the first two months of treatment, and thereafter if needed. Advantages: This is a very effective ozone treatment. Ozone and other oxygen treatments have been around for a long time and have been proven to be very safe and effective. This treatment can be used in cases where the patient cannot take supplements. Disadvantages: Many people do not want to inject ozone gas directly into their bloodstream. Also, because this treatment kills cancer cells, it may cause some inflammation and swelling. Working With an Expert For This Treatment Here is an article on the treatment and contact info: Ozone RHP Protocol - http://www.cancertutor.com/Other/Clinics.html [Also contact this site for information about the Malaysia clinic.] The Clinics Which Use Stage IV Protocols This website endorses several clinics. There are other clinics which do not want the publicity that a website gives. There are also many clinics I do not endorse either because I do not have enough information about them or I don't have time to evaluate them. Here is a list of clinics, some of which are endorsed, and others of which are listed. It would be rare when one of these clinics only used one or two treatments. Most of them use several treatments. However, just because a clinic uses several treatments does not mean it is an effective treatment. Just like a raging house fire cannot be put out with 10 garden hoses, a raging case of cancer cannot be put out by 10 mediocre treatments. The German clinics are the best in the world. If you can afford one of the German clinics, use them. All of them use hyperthermia as their main treatment. Here are all the clinics: Clinics - http://www.cancertutor.com/Other/Clinics.html Chapter 6 - Special Situations This is a critical chapter for almost all advanced cancer patients. This article discusses dealing with special situations, such as very fast spreading cancers, dealing with pain, dealing with tumors, etc. For Those With Tumors or Areas of High Concentrations of Cancer Cells (Congestion, Inflammation, Swelling and Blockage) While alternative cancer treatments almost always use purely natural substances, most alternative cancer treatments kill cancer cells slowly. As cancer cells are slowly dying, the immune system "attacks" them, which can create temporary inflammation or swelling. The inflammation and swelling is only temporary, but it can cause very dangerous partial blockages or complete blockages of key fluids or other things. This can be a very important issue for many cancer patients. It is mainly for this reason that in order to obtain the rank of "Stage IV treatment," on this website, there must be telephone support or a clinic setting. It is necessary for the cancer patient, or their caregiver, to have someone to talk to in order to know what to expect and how to deal with it. Also, as cancer cells die, they do not always just disappear. In some cases the debris from dead cancer cells is simply "eaten" by surrounding cells. However, in most cases cancer cells are concentrated in several areas of the body and there is simply too much debris for the surrounding cells to "eat." This places a burden on the liver, lymph system, kidneys and perhaps other parts of the body. This is another reason telephone support or a clinic setting is required. These two situations can be extremely dangerous, especially for certain types of cancer, such as lung cancer, brain cancer, any cancer of the digestive tract, and a few other situations. Inflammation and/or swelling can create a serious health problem. MSM (Methyl Sulfonyl Methane) is one supplement that is taken to keep inflammation down. Also, a magnetic pulser, such as the Klemens Electronic Magnetic Pulser, is another way to help keep inflammation down and in fact helps cancer patients in several different ways. But the main way to keep inflammation and swelling down is to use the right treatment for your situation, meaning not using a treatment which adds to the swelling and inflammation. For Very Fast Growing Cancers There are several things that MUST be accomplished for someone with a fastgrowing cancer: 1) Stop the spreading of cancer, 2) Safely get rid of the cancer cells, 3) Protect the non-cancerous cells, 4) Deal with any lactic acid cycle, 5) "Buy time," 6) Protect the liver (e.g. coffee enemas), What really stands out is stopping the spread of the cancer. This is generally the most critical part of the treatment. For example, the "cancer diet" is always important for a cancer treatment, but for fast-spreading cancers the cancer diet is TEN times more important than for a normal cancer. This is to help stop the spreading of cancer and requires the alkaline "cancer diet" of Robert O. Young. The Alkaline Cancer Diet (use 100% solution) http://www.cancertutor.com/AltTreatments/Alt_Diet.html Also, a treatment to "buy time" is critical. This was mentioned previously in this article, such as the DMSO - Vitamin C protocol (but not with the Hydrazine Sulfate protocol). There must be a main "Stage IV" alternative cancer treatments, such as the Cellect-Budwig Protocol. This deals with getting rid of cancer cells, protecting the non-cancerous cells and helps stop the spreading of cancer. Alkalinity is critical to stopping the spread of the cancer; thus adding a Stage III protocol, such as the Robert Barefoot Calcium Protocol (alkaline protocol) may add a great deal to the treatment. An oxygen therapy, such as hydrogen peroxide or ozone is also required to help stop the spread of cancer by creating an unfavorable "inner terrain" and to oxidize toxins. For cancers other than leumemias the Rath Cellular Solution is required. This consists of Vitamin C, L-Lysine, L-Proline and a green tea supplement: The Rath Cellular Solution - http://www.cancertutor.com/Cancer/Rath.html Heavy vegetable juicing is generally a good thing even though carrots do include some glucose. To stop the cachexia cycle, for patients who are weak and have lost their appetite, hydrazine sulfate should be used, but very strong warnings are needed to be understood by anyone on H.S. Hydrazine Sulphate - http://www.cancertutor.com/Cancer/Hydrazine.html There are also several other protocols to consider: laetrile (apricot seeds), proteolytic or pancreatic enzyme therapy, the Budwig Diet (even though dairy products are not on any cancer diet), etc. The important thing to remember is that for very fast-spreading cancers you can expect a highly intense alternative cancer protocol involving several different treatments designed to do several different things. Dealing With Pain Dealing with the pain of cancer is a common problem. A separate article has been written on this topic: Cancer Pain Article - http://www.cancertutor.com/Other02/CancerPain.html Dealing With Tumors "Stage IV" cancer treatments are designed to kill cancer cells, not to shrink tumors. If you kill all of the cancer cells in a tumor, the tumor is harmless, even if it still the same size as it was in the beginning! A tumor is mostly made up of healthy cells. The myth that a tumor is mostly cancer cells is total nonsense. A cancer cell is "undifferentiated," meaning it cannot have a function. A tumor is almost completely made up of healthy cells. That is why they do biopsies. Another lie that is spread by orthodox medicine is that biopsies cannot cause cancer to spread. This is also total nonsense. When you cut tissue, such as a tumor, it causes bleeding. Since cancer cells have no function, they are probably not as strongly attached to surrounding cells as are healthy cells (cancer cells actually have a totally different kind of enzymes on their surface than normal cells). They may be released into the bloodstream when a biopsy is performed. Because such a small percentage of the cells in a tumor are cancer cells, killing all of the cancer cells in a tumor will not necessarily shrink the tumor. Eventually, the body will shrink the tumor, but it may take a long time. Nevertheless, some alternative cancer treatments do shrink tumors fairly quickly. If you are dealing with a tumor, it is important to read this article: Article on Shrinking Tumors - http://www.cancertutor.com/Other/ShrinkTumors.html Cachexia or Loss of Appetite Advanced cancer patients sometimes lose a considerable amount of weight and then lose their appetite for eating. While it is common for a person to lose weight when they switch from a "Western" diet of hamburgers and French Fries to a diet of whole, raw foods, sometimes the loss of weight is caused by an aggressive type of cancer which is so "hungry" for glucose that it literally starts to "eat" the person's muscles and bones. Over 40% of all cancer patients die of this problem, known as "cachexia" or the "cachexia cycle" or the "lactic acid cycle." Fortunately, there is a potent product that was designed specifically to break the "cachexia cycle." The product is called hydrazine sulphate or hydrazine sulfate. It is superb at breaking the cachexia cycle. While cesium chloride breaks the cachexia cycle at the cancer cells (by blocking glucose from entering into the cells), hydrazine sulphate blocks the cachexia cycle in the liver (by blocking the formation of glucose from lactic acid). When a cancer patient is in this cycle, and they have lost their appetite, the only endorsed vendor of H.S. is Larry of Essense of Life (mentioned in the Cesium Chloride / DMSO article). This is mainly because the FDA has shut down most of the vendors who sold high quality hydrazine sulfate. Larry is the only hydrazine sulfate vendor endorsed by this website - period, even if you use another vendor for the main treatment. By the way, do NOT take hydrazine sulfate and DMSO at the same time. It is not a dangerous combination, but the DMSO will drag the H.S. into the cancer cells, where it has no beneficial effect. H.S. needs to get to the liver. The endorsed protocol for those with cachexia is the Cesium Chloride / DMSO Protocol. There are three reasons for this choice. First, Larry has the only acceptable H.S. product. Second, Larry's cesium chloride treatment is the best choice for bone cancer and bone loss, and cachexia patients almost always have some bone loss. Third, cesium chloride stops the cachexia at the cancer cells. This means the cachexia is being stopped in two different places. As mentioned previously, a new product called ATP blocks the cachexia cycle yet another way, by converting the lactic acid into glucose. Again, the cesium chloride treatment blocks the glucose from getting into the cancer cells. ATP will help protect the liver, which is overburdened by converting lactic acid into glucose. Reading this article is absolutely critical if cachexia applies to you (there are yet other items important to cachexia patients in this article, but the main purpose of this article is SAFETY ISSUES!!!: Hydrazine Sulphate Article - http://www.cancertutor.com/Cancer/Hydrazine.html Treating Cancer is Highly Complex - Do Your Homework!!! A Stage IV cancer requires a potent treatment (at least with today's technology). In fact, it may require the combination of several potent treatments. When combining all of these treatments there are a number of warnings and possible conflicts. It is essential that you do your homework and note every possible conflict. Key pages relevant to your current treatment need to be read OVER AND OVER AGAIN!!! If you read these articles only once or twice it is a guarantee of encountering problems and possible failure. As just one example, hydrazine sulfate requires that you take NO MORE THAN 250 mg per day of Vitamin C supplements, which includes what is in multivitamins, but does not include what is in whole foods. Other treatments suggest the use of 3 grams or more of Vitamin C per day. What should you do? You should take no more than 250 mg per day of Vitamin C if you are on hydrazine sulfate. If hospitals were allowed to treat your cancer with effective treatments, some nurse would keep track of everything. You don't have that luxury. Either you or someone you know is going to have to do the homework. With all of that in mind, these pages do change from time to time. You should download the key web pages, but only use the downloaded web pages for a few weeks, THEN download them again because the articles may have changed!! Chapter 7 - The "Type of Cancer" Articles This chapter offers specific suggestions for dealing with specific types of cancer, such as lung cancer, brain cancer, etc. Introduction Sometimes people are very concerned about where their cancer started. Nothing could be more irrelevant!! What is important is where the cancer is now and where is it spreading to. In other words, in what location of the body does the cancer present the most immediate danger!! When the cancer is in multiple locations, it is important to treat the location of the cancer in the most dangerous location first. Generally, lung cancer is treated first due to the dangers of congestion. Pancreatic cancer is another type of cancer which is almost always given top priority. Brain cancer is potentially deadly if there is brain swelling. Thus, in many cases brain cancer is the first cancer a patient should deal with. The first thing you should do, is list all of the areas there is cancer, then decide which cancer is the most dangerous. This is the decision of the family, after talking to their oncologist (i.e. ask the oncologist which location of the cancer will create the most immediate danger). In addition to the locations of the cancer, the type of cancer cells can frequently attract the attention of the cancer expert. For example, it doesn't matter where the squamous cell carcinoma is, that type of cancer is always a high priority because of the way it spreads and the speed with which it can spread. When reading these comments about the locations of cancer cells, and the types of cancer cells, you can get a feel for which location is the most dangerous (for the situation you are dealing with) and thus which location should attract your attention the most (i.e. triage). Of course, the type of cancer cell may override the locations of the cancer. Here is a list of types of cancer and the most dangerous types of cancer cells (though there are several dangerous types of cancer cells which will not be discussed): Note: Choriocarcinoma If you have the very rare and very dangerous choriocarcinoma [fast growing germ cell/reproductive cell cancers], use chemotherapy combined with a good "cancer diet" and oleander pills.

This chapter lists a number of treatments and devices which can compliment the Stage IV treatments without killing too many cancer cells too fast. Introduction An alternative cancer treatment is more than just killing cancer cells. All of the "Stage IV" alternative cancer treatments, and most clinics, include a complete protocol. A complete protocol can frequently be enhanced by other supplements. Sometimes an alternative cancer treatment can be improved by helping build the immune system, protecting vital organs, keeping the lymph system functioning, killing microbes, cleaning out the waste products of microbes, chelating heavy metals, and so on. Since the protocols mentioned above do not necessarily deal with every possible part of a complete cancer treatment, these supplements are given as ideas to cover a greater number of issues that cancer patients face. The article on the treatment for Stage I, II and III cancers has even more ideas and concepts. Some of the products sold with the protocols mentioned above may cover some of these areas, thus some of these items may not need to be added. The items in this section are optional, but it is recommended you look at this list, keeping in mind your situation. Essense Health Blend ["Buy Time," Build Nutrition, Immune System] First, Essense Health Blend is a superb immune builder which was mentioned above. It is a powdered supplement which should be added to fruit juices. It has key minerals, vitamins, iodine, Essential Fatty Acids, etc. etc. Essense Health Blend Vendor – http://www.essense-of-life.com/moreinfo/supplementblends/essenseblend.htm SuperGreens or Wheatgrass Juice ["Buy Time," Build Nutrition, Immune System] SuperGreens from InnerLight is a superb "greens" product which contains almost 50 different leafs, herbs and other plant extracts. Since this product is a combination of natural leafs, herbs and plant extracts there is no limit to how much you can take. If you look closely, this product can be taken as a powder, meaning a drink, or as capsules. Most people prefer the capsules. The powder is mainly for people who cannot eat whole foods, such as those who are being fed through a tube. It is recommended by the vendor to take Prime pH with the SuperGreens. Prime pH is a stabilized oxygen product. This advice is strongly encouraged. Since the leafs, herbs and plants have been dehydrated, it is critical to flood the body with oxygen to increase the bioavailability of the SuperGreens. The instructions for Prime pH is to take 1 drop per 2 ounces of water. However, even with 1 drop per 1 ounce of water you will not taste the alkalinity of the product. It is recommended to take at least 6 drops (in at least 6 ounces of water) of Prime pH for each SuperGreen capsule. Since you should be drinking a lot of natural water every day anyway, you can take a lot of SuperGreen capsules if you wish. You could also take fresh lemon juice or essential oils to help the bioavailability of the SuperGreens. For those who choose freshly made wheatgrass juice, it is not necessary to add the Prime pH, lemon juice or essential oils. Wheatgrass juice should never be dehydrated and should be consumed on the same day it is made (the sooner the better). Here is a vendor of InnerLight products: http://www.innerlightinc.com/86477 (You may have to search for this product, they keep changing their website) Lymph III and Quantum Kidney Complex [Protects Lymph, Liver, Kidney] These two superb products are from the same vendor and will protect your lymph system, your liver and your kidney's!! Lymph III aids in the detoxification processes of the liver and kidneys, as well as the lymph system, enabling these organs to more effectively and efficiently remove toxins and wastes. Lymph III, together with the proper ingestion of healthy water, also assists in preventing dehydration and the resultant slowing of lymphatic circulation, drainage and removal of toxins. Quantum Kidney Complex contains Agaricus Extract and Cordyceps, both of which protect the kidneys, and other products as well. Lymph III - http://www.vpnutrition.com/product_info.php/cPath/26/products_id/63 Quantum Kidney Complex http://www.vpnutrition.com/product_info.php/cPath/26/products_id/62 Samento (TOA-Free Cat's Claw) PLUS Noni Concentrate [Infections, Immune System] Both of these products are from the same vendor. Infections are a major issue with cancer patients, particularly those who have been on chemotherapy and have had their immune system damaged or destroyed. These two products are required to deal with infections. It is critical to get the "TAO-Free" variety because the TAOs (tetracyclic oxindole alkaloids) in normal Cat's Claw will significantly interfere with the effects of the more important PAOs (pentacyclic oxindole alkaloids), which affect the cellular immune system. Diabetics should NOT use Noni Concentrate because of its very high glucose level. By the way, the cure for Type II diabetes is on this website (there is a link on the home page - search for 'diabetes'). Here is a vendor, NutraMedix: http://www.cats-claw.com/ Glyconutrients [Unique Immune Builder] There are 8 critical sugars (monosaccharides) the immune system needs to internally communicate (cell to cell). They are called: glyconutrients. The product Ambrotose has all 8 of the glyconutrients, but it does not have the very rare verylong-chain acemannan form of the mannose sugar. It is this rare very-long-chain glyconutrient that makes Aloe Immune, a competing product, recommended for cancer patients. The dosage for Aloe Immune is 6 (500mg) pills a day, but start with only 1 (150 mg or 500mg) pill a day and build up quickly. Warning: Some people have a chemical sensitivity to this product (e.g. fever, aches). If this is the case, work with the vendor as to what dosage you can handle. The vendor does not yet have a web page, so here are their phone numbers. In the U.S. call: 800-807-4779. From outside of the U.S. call: 830-935-4292 (This is a residence so you may get voice mail. Keep calling back, they may not have been able to understand your phone number.). Polysaccharides and/or Sterols and Sterolins [Immune Building] The elements of the body's immune system need to communicate with each other in order for the immune system to be effective. Glyconutrients (the monosaccharides discussed above) and polysaccharides are two of the critical things that allow this communication to happen. However, there are other nutrients that have been shown to help build the immune system. Here are some major products that can build the immune system. Item #1, by itself, is very potent. Items #2 and #3 are very effective together. 1) Transfer Factor Plus (the 4Life brand) 2) MGN3 / MGN-3 (available in the U.S. only under the brand name: BioBran) 3) A Beta Glucan Supplement: Immutol or "Beta-1, 3-D Glucan" 4) ModuCare (a sterols and sterolins supplement) 5) An AHCC Supplement: Immpower, ImmunoKinoko, Immune-Assist includes AHCC 6) Immune Fx Chlorella and Spirulina ["Buy Time," Immune Building, Chelation, Vitamin B12, etc.] Chlorella and spirulina also contain polysaccharides, but they are not condensed like the above supplements. These items are chosen for other reasons, namely their chlorophyll, vitamin B12, proteins, chlorella's ability to chelate heavy metals, etc. Chlorella and spirulina can be taken in high doses, actually unlimited doses (after all they are FOODS, not supplements). You may take from between 5 grams and 50 grams a day of each of these substances. However, a person should build up to their desired level of chlorella to avoid diarrhea (start with 5 grams a day and build up). Here is a web page (from an ebook on chlorella and spirulina) that has recommended vendors: http://www.chlorellafactor.com/chlorella-spirulina-33.html Reflexology and Acupuncture [Stimulate the Liver] For Stage IV patients, it is critical to keep the organs functioning properly. These organs include the liver and kidney, among other organs. The standard alternative cancer treatment for stimulating the liver is the coffee enema. It is a great aid in the elimination of the liver’s toxic wastes. However, there are two problems with the coffee enema. First, many people do not like to use the coffee enema because it is uncomfortable. Second, regardless of what you may have read, the caffeine in the coffee WILL get into the blood stream and shrink the blood vessels and capillaries. This is not good for a cancer patient because many cancer cells are behind the capillaries (traveling through the veins from the heart). One solution to this problem is reflexology or acupuncture. These treatment will stimulate the nerves, and may help protect the key organs. Water [Hydration, Cleansing, Lymphatic Circulation] Drink plenty of water for detox reasons. A half-gallon a day, or more, is strongly recommended. Alkaline water is recommended, but not required. Tap water is not allowed - use natural water or alkaline water. Willard water is perfectly fine, as is distilled water. Some people recommend adding one teaspoon of sea salt to each gallon of water to allow the cells to better absorb the water. Exercise [Pump Lymph System, Psychological/Reduce Stress] Exercise is critical for cancer patients. It puts a stress on the heart and pumps the blood faster. But perhaps more importantly, it pumps the lymph system and is critical to getting the toxins out of the body. The lymph system has no pump (such as the heart pumps the circulatory system), only muscles can pump the lymph system. Obviously, many people with advanced cancer cannot go for a walk. If going on a walk is not advisable or possible, you should lift a book or something else and do exercises two or three times a day for up to 10 minutes total each time.
