Bone cancer usually begins in arm or leg bones. It doesn't include cancers that started in another part of the body and spread to the bones. The bone cell's DNA has an error leading to uncontrolled growth, forming a tumor. The tumor can spread to other parts of the body. Some types of bone cancer are found mostly in adults (osteosarcoma), or children (Ewing's Sarcoma) or older adults (Chondrosarcoma). Symptoms include: bone pain, tenderness and swelling, a broken bone, weight loss and fatigue. Risk factors: hereditary genetic syndromes such as Li-Fraumeni syndrome and retinoblastoma, Paget's disease and radiation therapy. Surgery is a common bone cancer treatment; it can range from removing the entire limb to removing only the cancer. Radiation therapy is often used to kill cancer cells remaining after surgery; it may also help with other symptoms and pain. Chemotherapy kills cancer cells with chemicals given intravenously. Chemotherapy or chemo combined with radiation is often used to shrink a bone cancer before surgery so the surgeon will not have to amputate the limb.
Bone Cancer Treatment
- Essiac tea.
- To boost immune system: 2-3 bulbs crushed garlic mixed with carrot or tomato juice; sip all day.
- Budwig diet has been shown to reverse cancer.
- 1) Eliminate sugars. 2) 1/2 tsp. lysine and 1/2 tsp. n-acetyl cysteine every hour for 4 hours or more, do for 3 days. 3) 1/8 tsp. tannic acid and/or 1/4 tsp. green tea extract 3x a day. 4) 1,000 mg Vitamin C 8x a day for 3 days. Continue with reduced quantities after 3 days.

Apple Cider Vinegar
11/29/2013: Broken-hearted from Kansas City, Missouri: "NOV. 29, 2013 : APPLE CIDAR VINEGAR TO TREAT CANCER.
Thank you all for the information you posted here on the Earth Clinic on the CURE OF CANCER WITH APPLE CIDER VINEGAR. Apart from one woman who wrote, that her husband took two teaspoons every night for one week and got better, and now takes one teaspoon at night once a week, nobody gave any dosage or how to take the ACV for healing to take place.
Please, when you put something out here, give us the whole informatiom: the dosage to take, how many times a day (before or after meal ) and for how long (although this depends on individual cases).
Somebody posted this: Sun Chlorella, and medicinal mushrooms (Shutaki, reshi and mitake, cordyceps) for natural cancer treatment without side effects. This information does not help us because it is incomplete. Are these used combined or individually and at what dosage? When you post an information like this, you are not helping anybody. We come to this site to look for help, because we are in need. If you just throw out an information that is not complete, you are not helping anybody.
I have started using ACV two teaspoons at night. Somebody should tell me if this is alright and also for how long. I am treating bone marrow cancer with chemo therapy. The cancer produces much toxins and the kidneys are unable to excrete them. So, I am also going through dialysis to help the kidneys eliminate the toxins. Somebody out there, please tell me if you have had or you know somebody who has had an experience with bone marrow cancer. I am eager to read your posts, because I seriously need help.
Thank you and God bless.
11/29/2013: Mike 62 from Denver, Colorado replies: "Broken-hearted: Fundamentally the cause of your suffering is that eating regular food creates a condition called fermentation. Cooking denatures enzymes and conventional food is low in nutrients and high in pollutants. Continuing to eat this kind of food and taking a teaspoon of this and a gram of that is not going to cure your very serious condition. Eating organic produce, grassfed animal products, and the superfoods all raw increases the respiratory quotient and creates an atmosphere where cells thrive and the mutation perishes. If this is something you would like to try please reply back and I'll be glad to send you the products and dosages. Thank you."
11/30/2013: Timh from Ky, Usa replies: "Broken-hearted: The Chlorella and Shitake Mushrooms are consider medicinal foods and it's not really a big deal about dosage like it is w/ pharm meds; simply take them w/ your meals or as directed on the labels. All supplements are labeled w/ "suggested use". Also, to help your bone marrow and the toxicity issues take NAC as directed plus Astragalus herb as directed. The Astragalus will raise your body temp about two degrees so be sure to not do too much.
There are many suggestions for therapy but what you want to achieve mostly is maximizing your nutrition levels and the single best way to do this is take a very good multivitamin/mineral w/ whole foods and digestive enzymes; the more ingredients the better. This helps your body detox and improves health on every level. Juicing veggies is also recommended. NADH is recommended (20mg daily) to reduce the toxicity of chemo (works great w/ the NAC) as well as increasing cell energy.
Back to juicing, do read and try the Asparagus/Beet fast. Protein is critical for health in times like you're in so do consider a high quality undenatured whey protein w/ added Branch Chain Amino Acids.
Extra Vit-E in the form of Tocotreinols will help overall cell protection plus empower the lifespan of the red blood or erythrocytes.
All these suggestion will help you and maybe considerably, so do take heart and try and be positive. There are many good and caring folks here on E.C. that will help you on your journey, so do keep us updated."
07/12/2013: Kelly from Southeast Pa, Pa: "i believe serrapeptase or nattokinase may be more helpful (or in addition to) tea for the treatment of fibroids. These enzymes dissolve protein that does not belong in the body. (like mucus, etc.) Floressence tea (I just had some :) ) is the same as Essiac."
[YEA] 07/03/2013: Precious from Detroit, Michigan: "My hubby had bone cancer 23years ago. he refused chemo. I told the doctor to trick him. I told the doctor to say you need fluids and then antibiotics. Instead his doctor gave him chemo, but my hubby figured it out too quick and refused treatment. They only gave him a year. A cousin was treating a dog with tremors with Essiac tea. I felt the tremors. The were gone in a month. I gave the tea to my hubby. Snuck it in anything I could. I put it in his coffee, his tea, his food. Now I know this dilutes the tea.... But it worked. He went into remission. Then he had a motorcycle accident and crushed his leg and foot. About 1 year later his cancer was back. We don't know but we think the bad bone marrow was put back into his system. Don't know... But I gave him the tea.... Now the doctor is calling hospice and the VA is telling us he is in stage 3 bone cancer... I was at my wits end. The tea did its job and he is in remission again. Now the VA wants to know what I gave him. All he would tell them is a tea... But its funny now the FDA has pulled the tea from the US Market from what I hear. Anyway if you have cancer and you want to live drink the tea is all I have to say."Replies

07/06/2013: Kt from The Usa replies: "Hi Vina, I was interested too so I looked it up and received a prompt reply. Their link is www.essiacfromcanada.com/ but they are located in FL. Closer to you for sure! Phone no. and fax provided too."
07/07/2013: Vina from Powder Springs, Ga replies: "Thanks for the quick response. I have fibroids tumors hopefully this will help with that. Thanks again, Vina"
07/10/2013: Joyce from Lansdowne, Pa replies: "You can get it at Whole Foods. It may be cheaper to get the herbs and brew the tea yourself. I have the herbs, which I brew myself. I got it from Herbal Healer. I do not have cancer but I take it once in a while."
07/15/2013: Mary from Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada: "Regarding bone cancer, I recently read an article on Mercola I think that said that a ketogenic diet cured this type of cancer by starving it. A man had 3 months to live and he is alive one year later with no trace of it. The irony is he is a doctor!"
08/14/2013: Alena from Czech Republic: "Dear Ted, thank you so much for this web and your advice, I have found a lot of info here. But, I am little bit confused what to do first (sugar, I know) and what not to do/eat. I got osteosarcoma diagnose 2 month before. I refused operation and I started with urina fasting 21days, then 1 week raw food (unfortunatelly including fruits), then mms1+mms2 for 19days and now Budwig diet. I am 27 years old. Yesterday a got new results, surprisingly(at least for me) very bad. The femoral bone is very week and with every movement I risk broken neck in my hip. Maybe there is some connection with hard eczema and corticoids last year (now ok, no medicaments). I have some questions I am trying to get lysine, is it possible use dmso with smth. Else (afraid of odor in flat), is very bad add black currant to Budwig cottage? how to strengthen bones - can I use crushed egg shells to get calcium? could help vit. C infusion or oral use is enough? thank you very much! Greetings from Central Europe. Alena"Replies
08/14/2013: Mt from Ottawa, Ontario replies: "You have to boost your immune system. One way is to take large dose of crushed garlic (2/3 bulbs for 1/2 liter) in a jus of carrots or tomatoes -you are supposed to sip it through the day if not you will vomit.
Eating vegetables will reduce the amount of energy to process the food so energy will be available to fight the cancer.
You have also to clean your blood -drink 2 cups of stinging nettle, 4 cups of yarrow (the yarrow stimulates stem cells creation) and 2 cups calendula tea each day. To three of the tea cups add one tablespoon of Swedish Bitter and drink half cup one hour before each meal and half cup 1/2 hour after it. For each cup of boiling water use a heaped teaspoon of plant -fresh plants are the best- infuse the plants for 4 minutes max.
Also massage your body in the region of the cancer with a mixture of yarrow tincture and Swdish Bitter (equal parts) multiples time a day.
For the calcium you can use cleaned egg shell that you grind and soak in lemon juice for a few days in the fridge -you have to filter out impurities before you start taking the resulted mix -1 tablespoon a day.

03/15/2011: Guest Daughter from Brampton, Ontario,canada: "Hi All, Desperately looking for cure for bone cancer - mutiple myeloma. I have two questions in this regards :-
1) Protocol outlined by Bill for his friend- Is there anyone else who has tried this protocol and it helped them cancer. I did not see any posts on this topic from bill after August 2010
2) Red clover - Has anyone tried Red clover herb as anticancer therapeautic?
Please advise asap
03/16/2011: Bill from San Fernando, San Fernando, Philippines replies: "Hi Guest Daughter... The man I treated was a good friend of mine who had melanoma initially that metastased to lymphoma and then into the ribs as bone cancer. He'd had the cancer for over a year already and had already had several ops to remove cancerous lymph glands.
I had great difficulty getting some of the supplements -- I was unable to use EDTA, Azoxystrobin, BHT, EDTA, Tannin, or Bloodroot for instance, just could not get them in the Philippines. So, as depicted in my schedule above -- I had to improvise, so he took various remedies incuding daily decoctions of Chanca Piedra/Heart Vine/Neem/Tumeric root(alkalizes the body, supports liver and kidneys and thins the blood by diuretic action) that I made for him. The whole strategy was really based on Ted's from Bangkok's method's and entailed:
* Alkalizing the blood and cells constantly
* Fully Support & Heal the Immune System
* Fully Support & Heal the Liver/kidneys(blood excretory system)
* Avoiding cachexia
* Directly attacking the cancer using Lysine/ Vitamin C, protease enzymes, Methylene Blue etc
* Proper Anti-cancer Diet
When I started the protocols with my friend, the cancer had already metastased widely and he had recently been taken off morphine. Also, he was taking Tylenol pain killers instead, but this drug also works against and damages the liver. Then he also had a series of minor strokes(he had had them before) and a visit to the hospital because his blood was thick with a tendency to clot. He was also quite badly constipated because of morphine/Tylenol use -- cured that with a tablespoon of VCO at mealtimes. Eventually, with great difficulty and much adapting, I managed to get things stabilized and he started to be up and about and walking outside more than before. He seemed to have more energy and all the strokes stopped.
I only had him on this protocol for just under two weeks, then, because of family pressure, he was forced to return to Hong Kong and the oncology doctors. He died in Hong Kong within a week.
Just before he went to Hong Kong, I sat down with him for a chat. Then I watched as his wife brought him a glass of orange soda and a bacon sandwich(white bread) to eat!! I think that he had simply ignored all my advice on diet. His bad diet was what was causing and aggravating all his cancer pain and other problems.
He was a lovely guy though, a wonderful character and I will miss him."
03/21/2011: Isabelle from Garden Grove, Ca replies: "dear Bill, I thought often about your endeavour to help your friend with multiple cancer, and was wondering what happen, because of computer problem I only found your post right now. I want to convey my sympathy about the loss of your friend and the pain of knowing that it could have been different if he knew and understood what you know. In my experience it take a lot on a person to go against his environement and family when sick and weak. The tendency is to avoid changes and confrontation about years and years of medical and nutritional brainwashing. We need to educate ourselves and make the change as soon as possible, so, in case of need we can be in the right frame of mind and use our resource to fight accordingly to our knowledge. Thank you for your sharing! Peace, take good care of yourself."

THC oil cures everything, because all over your body you have cannibinoid receptors. In the dvd it also explains how to make THC oil. Smoking marijuana is also an excellent pain reliever."
11/28/2012: Anon from Anon replies: "Hi Karen, There are lots of good testimonies from people in your situation who have taken the budwig therapy - the science behind it is excellent and it is relatively cheap to do- if you google it you will find lots of information. There are books on amazon written by the dr j budwig and there is a clinic in Spain ( the budwig centre). After lots of research this is my choice x good luck"

07/24/2010: Bill from San Fernando, Luzon, Philippines : "Hi Everyone. . . As promised, here is a further update on my friend's cancer and what we are doing about it. There has been much confusion by the doctors on how it started -- But I believe that it wasn't lymphoma but was originally a bone cancer that started on his backbone and spread to his lymph glands causing secondary lymphoma cancer. After he had had a few 'expensive' X-ray pictures taken of his body and further radiation therapy, my friend was simply given aspirin and Panadol and sent on his way home by the doctor's in Hong Kong. Such Hippocratic dedication is truly disappointing. It is notable, regarding cancer and metastasis, that the medical fraternity has nothing whatsoever in its meager medical arsenal that can defeat any cancer once it has metastased and spread virally. The exact figures(which took some finding believe me) for cancers being cured 5 years after metastasis and even after remission are about 2-3%. They simply have no drugs or procedures that can cope with cancer metastasis. Other symptoms that I also had to take careful account of were my cancer friend's other problems. The doctor's told him that he had had about ten tiny heart attacks or strokes in his head, causing loss of feeling, drooping, loss of motor use on one side of his body for short periods. I have incorporated certain other things into the therapy to help his heart -- not least being the megadose Lysine/Vitamin C which, according to Linus Pauling's exact same therapy, should clear his heart problems gently but quickly over time. Also, one of the side-effects of the Panadol has been constipation. Anyway, the purpose of this post is simply to broadcast exactly what I'm doing to help stop and defeat these post-metastased cancers(4 of them, on his ribs, near the backbone) in my friend's body. I have to admit that my friend with cancer was unable to purchase either Azoxystrobin or BHT in Hong kong, so I had to adapt, relying now only on high dose Lysine, Vitamin C(Ascorbate form) and Protease Enzymes for the main assault on the cancer and Essiac tablets which provide the Tannic Acid to decloak the cancer, halt cancer growth, prevent angiogenesis etc. To this effect, and to help other people, I have written up a daily protocol(which my cancer friend is following now) in simple table format and I have put it in a shared folder on Google Docs that anyone can have a look at. Here is the link:
Bill's Daily Cancer Protocol Schedule
And just to be clear, ALL the protocols that I use in this therapy are based on Ted from Bangkok's protocols. I must also add a huge thanks to Ted from Bangkok who has so generously and patiently answered every question that I have asked him through emails. The only deviation from his therapy is the Essiac tablets -- since I couldn't get the Tannic Acid -- so Ellagic acid will have to do. I will only have 3 weeks before my friend goes back to the expensive Hong Kong doctors, so this is why the protocol I've used is quite aggressive. After we discussed the protocol last Friday, my cancer friend started just the Lysine and Vitamin C megadoses yesterday and today he is laid up in bed with a slight fever, which I am happy about -- this means his immune system now actually sees and is fighting the cancer. His liver seems to be coping well because he still has a healthy appetite. But I am prepared to give protease enzymes, hydrochloric acid drops and Vitamin B100 if his appetite begins to slide. The Daily Protocol that my friend is using will change once he comes out of the Herx or cancer die-off reaction. I will be further increasing both the Lysine and Protease Enzyme doses, which is necessary to particularly defeat the bone cancer. If anyone wants to know more about this daily protocol schedule, I'll be glad to answer any questions on this ongoing remedy on EC, since this is all about passing on knowledge after all. I have also decided to keeping a daily journal of all symptoms, events, changes and remedies used and will eventually be putting this up on my Google Docs Shared Items. I will also update here on my friend's cancer status regularly. Be well."

07/24/2010: Bessie from Calgary, Alberta, Canada replies: "Hi Bill - WOW! That's a really impressive protocol you've put together for your friend. Thanks for sharing. It's sad - although not surprising - that the conventional doctors didn't do anything but, fortunately, you've devised such a thorough therapeutic program. I'll be following your updates. Good luck to you and your friend."
07/25/2010: Isabelle from Garden Grove, Ca Usa replies: "Dear Bill, thank you so much for your great help in organizing and, as a result, clarifying all those fantastic info on so many important remedies and explanations point from Ted's extraordinary mind. I am learning and copying from many of your posts since I found this site and I am very grateful. You did a remarkable job for your friend and thanks to your generosity many peoples are benefiting from it (I am collecting info for a friend's brother in law with stage IV liver cancer). May all the universe blessings be upon you, and all the generous peoples participating in this site!"
07/26/2010: Connie from Slc, Utah replies: "I am happy to be one of the many supporters of your efforts to heal your good friend. He's in the best of hands. I have learned much from your posts, and appreciate greatly the information and experience you have offered to us all. In the case of your good friend's protocol, I am offering a caveat that may not or may apply to his situation. ( I bring this up because I caused a regression in my own situation. ) Many of the compounds that we use contain Chlorides. (HCL, MgCl, Lysine and other amino acids, B complex, et al. ) Several months ago, I increased compounds with these acids and began to have increased pain associated with my conditions. I was confused about the why of it, but realized it when I examined a recent blood test. (sometimes they can present clues to people like me, with suppressed instincts). My chlorides were high normal, and my Co2, (indicates also oxygen and bicarbonates), was also high normal. I guessed that I had been over-supplementing with acidic compounds. This may not be true to your protocol, but in the interest of balance and healing, I introduce this possibility. Thank you, I hope for you both, the greatest success. Connie"
07/27/2010: Bill from San Fernando, Luzon, Philippines replies: "I would like to give a big thanks to everyone who has offered support in my effort in trying to help my friend with cancer using Ted's approach. He has only been on my protocol for about 3 days and, to be honest, it has been quite dramatic with many frustration and a few setbacks. Yesterday he had another stroke which was caused by his liver and kidneys not working properly, thus promoting thick or toxic blood which will have a tendency to clot in these circumstances. His blood was accumulating the cancer toxins, debris etc and his liver and kidneys were just not doing their job excreting the waste. He has had hard stools and insufficient urinations since before starting the protocol. This problem was stopped by my friend taking a laxative, after which his stool was soft and his urination was huge. He feels much better now but I still am not sure about his liver -- so I've deviated from Ted's protocol and will introduce a herbal mix containing Chanca Piedra, Heart Vine, Tumeric and Neem leaves. This should sort out both his liver and kidneys -- I know this decoction well -- I use it once a month for many things and I've used it successfully with other people who have had gout, arthritis and diabetes. Anyway, I also thought that keeping a daily dairy/journal would be helpful just to give people an idea of the other weird problems that crop up during this sort of cancer treatment. Here is the link to my journal and the cancer protocol schedule which has also changed significantly(these changes will be ongoing):
The Cancer Journal
The Bone Cancer Protocol (Tables)
To Connie. . . You are right that chlorides are not generally good for the body, but Magnesium Chloride his some peculiarly beneficial properties that are unique. See this link:
Regarding the use of Hydrochloric Acid in a cancer diet -- this is used simply to promote appetite -- after all, if you have cancer and you are not producing hydrochloric acid in the stomach, you will need this acid to both promote appetite and to digest food in the stomach. If you don't do this, then it is very likely the person with cancer will starve to death through nausea, lack of appetite etc. -- this is called cachexia which occurs regularly at the end of a terminal cancer. The B Vitamins (which is in the Dessicated liver tablets) is also a natural appetite stimulant. Regarding lysine -- this is the main attack on the cancer -- together with the Vitamin C and the Protease Enzymes. Provided you alkalize sufficiently as well, there should really be no problems with these chloride substances."
01/16/2009: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand: "I have recently experimented and discovered a couple of others relating to cancer that can be helped greatly (all of the survived of course) which includes azoxystrobin is found in decaying pine cone - a natural material that I used for bone cancer! that also have awesome remission too. The stuff is found in fungicide application and is one of the safest around. The dosage, amazingly is low, only several drops is required a day. The applications for this is huge, it is one of few supplements that can go deep enough into bone marrow cancer and work its magic in remission. It's based on my theory of slow cancer and fast cancer. A slow cancer are fungus and they tend to attack the bones. A fast cancer are viral in nature and kills the patient in matter of days, often exhibiting as a metastaic condition. Hence, I used BHT against metastasis and EDTA which prevents blood clots in cancer victims. The other great anti-cancer supplements against any cancer polyps is the bloodroot tincture or sanguinaria tincture. I am currently looking at bloodroot tincture (40%) the possibility of using this against more advanced forms of Morgellon's disease that's currently resistant against borax and peroxide remedy.
The product azoxystrobin, in purchased as a fungicide, but is used only in drops, goes under various commercial brands such as Amistar or Heritage. The company that sells this for fungicides to be used in plants marketed by a company named Syngenta. This is the single most effective "natural" material I can find that can work effectively against bone cancer and bone pain. The effect of the use is slow but a significant decline in pain after a couple of days of use. I strongly suspect it is fungal in nature. Some people may dispute me that cancer is NOT a fungus. But here's the counter punch: aflaxtoxins and mycotoxins are known cancer causing fungal toxins. So if the you manage to reduce toxins from fungus inside the body, the cancer reverses itself from lowering of fungus toxins, and hence bone cancer.

07/12/2013: Kelly from Southeast Pa, Pa: "I'm wondering: if bone cancer is fungal then wouldn't baking soda (1/4 tsp on empty stomach at least 2-3x's a day) and grapefruit seed extract be helpful? Both these fungicides are readily available to most peeps... I'd throw in Lugol's iodine b/c, why not? :)"
