Natural Remedies to Treat Lymphoma
"Lymphoma is a type of neoplasm that originates in lymphocytes (a type of white blood cell in the vertebrate immune system). There are many types of lymphoma. Lymphomas are part of the broad group of diseases called hematological neoplasms.
In the 19th and 20th centuries the affliction was called Hodgkin's Disease, as it was discovered by Thomas Hodgkin in 1832. Colloquially, lymphoma is broadly categorized as Hodgkin's lymphoma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma (all other types of lymphoma). Scientific classification of the types of lymphoma is more detailed.
Although older classifications referred to histiocytic lymphomas, these are recognized in newer classifications as of B, T or NK cell lineage. Histiocytic malignancies are rare and are classified as sarcomas." (Wikipedia)

11/29/2011: Sal from Brisbane, Qld Australia: "Dear Ted,
Would appreciate your comments.
My son has a large b cell diffused lymphoma the size of a fotball in his stomach which has been treated with chemo (RCHOP). This has reacted well. He also has a slow growing lymphoma and has mab thera every 2nd month. The next blow was a melanoma on the side of his temple which has been removed. I would appreciate your comments greatly. The diet has been changed however, fruit is also being part of this and my thoughts is the sugar from fruit would be feeding the fungus. Looking forward to your feedback.
Thank you, Sal"

[YEA] 11/22/2009: Mia from Vancouver, British Columbia : "In late July 2009 @ age 64 I began generously & daily painting my nine lymph nodes with iodine soaked qtip in all four quadrants of my body, covering them with 7% iodine as an experimental treatment for newly diagnosed Stage III non Hodgkins lymphoma (indolent) & the enlarged lymph nodes that go with the territory. I have had NO orthodox cancer treatment, NO invasive diagnosis, just blood tests & ultra sound, no enlarged liver or spleen. Flow cytometry determined the genetic markers for the type of cancer. ALL nodes, regardless of original size, have shrunk by approximately 3/4 of each original size in a four month period. All have stopped feeling "rooted" and are now moveable. I really like thinking of cancer as an infection that is beatable. This lymph node reversal & shrinkage seems to fit with certain iodine 4 health innovative theories I found out there, particularly about the suspected fungal/viral/bacterial nature of cancer. The oncologist is mute, albeit professionally non committal, but clearly stumped. Alternative TCM doc is delighted, fascinated. About to get updated blood panel done. Will keep anyone interested posted. P.S. Admittedly, much more recently "raw family" type green smoothies, Fl-essence anti cancer tea, became part of this program, along with daily ACV, mega green tea caps, selenium, Vit E, & multi enzymes, like serapeptase, etc., plus rebounder, all said to assist cancer cell death. However, node shrinkage was radical before I did much else. I feel & look better than I have in MANY years. ENERGY TO SPARE."Replies

[YEA] 01/24/2011: Buddyl1950 from Powell, Oh, Usa: "Hi,
I just found this Website and it is a blessing! 3 years ago in March 2008, I was diagnosed with Low Grade B-Cell Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma along with Waldenstrom's Syndrome. Waldenstrom's has to do with the thickening or viscosity of the blood. That is the bad part, the good part is that my lymphoma is inactive and has never transformed. They found it in my bone marrow after a biopsy of a lesion on my back.
I take supplements to strengthen my immune system PLUS Low Dose Naltrexone. LDN was prescribed by a D.O. in Miami FL. You can read more about it here: www.lowdosenaltrexone.org.
One last thing and perhaps the most important... If you have cancer, it is NOT a death sentence! There is ALWAYS hope! I go to The Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Zion, IL every 6 months for blood work and either a CT Scan or PET Scan. It is a great place where they treat the mind, spirit and body! God Bless You All! Bud Lindley

I have a product called TBL12 which my daughter took for ALL-Leukemia, I am not selling it I can give it to you for free. The manufacturer has given us a supply and permission to give it away. I am not sure if I am allowed to post like this on EC but you can contact me through email hutton69(at)lavabit(dot)com. Please contact me, it has an 80% success rate. My wife never believed in Natural Medicine until seeing the TBL12 work for our little girl. We did other things as well but we credit the TBL12 for her recovery. I have all the records for our girls treatment and the only time her bloods dropped was when we could not afford the TBL12, all the Oncologists who have seen her are amazed at how well she is/has been.
I am happy to deliver it to you or meet you half way, it is frozen and there no refridgerated couriers.

Stop Wearing Tight Underwear and Bras
[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] 02/07/2007: M. Boyle from Birmingham, AL: "During the fall of 2005 I was put on a series of antibiotics for a period of 4 months treating a throat and gland problem. My Dr. referred me to a Nose Throat ear specialist. Test were done and this time I was diagnosed with Mono(from a patient I treated) Again more antibiotics I got worse night fevers swelling then the knots came. I was then diagnosed with Lymphoma. Yes, the antibiotics played a big part, but there were other factors. One- tight wired bras were cutting the lymph tubes where the toxins could not flow. Also wearing bras to bed and wearing under panties with elastic bands around the waste and groin area which also cut lymph tubes. Ladies, get out of the tight under garments. This is a big factor in breast cancer because the toxins stop at the breast area when the lymph tubes are squeezed tight and cannot flow and remove the toxins."Replies

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.

09/14/2006: Scarlett from Chico, CA: "I'm seeking a cure for Lymphoma. My friend is struggling with this and has been using chemo and Remicade dosing. Any suggestions for a 100% cure? Thank you."Replies
Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "Scarlett: Try taking some sodium thiosulfate (dechlorinator) you buy from pet shops. Add 5-6 drops per glass of water. It will reduce some side effects from chemotherapy.
A reducing water (antioxidant water) is to prepare a 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda plus 1/2 teaspoon of vitamin C (ascorbic acid or sodium ascorbate) to 1/2 glass of water, taken twice a day, once in morning and once before bedtime on empty stomach. This will allow the antioxidant to allow a more natural healing. Raising your immune systems is vital, so taking 50 mg of zinc acetate per day and eating 4 apricot pits a day should be a good treatment for lymphoma.
A possibility exists that taking baths using pure vinegar should help detoxify the chemotherapy too. Taking baths in sodium thiosulfate solution also helps, but you need to buy in large amounts from the swimming pool supplier. This is a common chemotherapy detoxification used by doctors to prevent people from going deaf during chemotherapy also. However, I believe it serves a much wider purpose."
05/18/2010: Lilibeth from Cebu City, Philippines replies: "May I know the component of Vit. C used. Is it pure ascorbic acid or crystalline ascorbic acid? Can we also use calcium ascorbate? Would also be glad if you could recommend the brand of baking soda. Thank you very much.
05/19/2010: John from Cebu, Philippines replies: "Dear Ted:
I think what lilibeth wanted to ask are the ff:
1. If we take vit.c (this obviously is in powder form aka crystalline ascorbic acid)and sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) together and pour these substance into half a glass of water; the result would be a reaction between the two seen as a fizzling/sizzling effect (like that of 'alkaseltzer'). What we have now in solution is:a mineral ascorbate:
2.If this is what we want (some say since its so-called non-acidic)then why not go out and buy the convenient capsuled sodium ascorbate (Roche)? why go thru the trouble of mixing ascorbic acid and baking soda when after all the resultant is easily obtainable in its capsuled form?
3.I use to do the above procedure because of cost reasons:taking mega doses of vit.C as much as 8grams can be a financial challenge;while the powder form is relatively cheaper than the capsuled form.
4. But the point i want to raise is WHAT is in the 'reduced' anti-oxidant water (alkaline)which may be superior and more effective than were you to take a capsuled sodium ascorbate?
The thread is some four years ago but i feel the answers are as relevant as ever.
05/19/2010: Bill from San Fernando, Luzon, Philippines replies: "When you take Vitamin C as Ascorbic Acid, it first has to be digested in the duodenum part of the digestion. During this digestion, alkaline bicarbonates are produced in the duodenum (with the enzymes) which converts the Ascorbic Acid to ascorbate salt. Then it is absorbed from the intestines into the body.
By first converting the Ascorbic Acid to Sodium Ascorbate using Baking Soda BEFORE you take the vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) -- you actually save your body's bicarbonates, thus alkalizing your body even more.
If you have an IV of Vitamin C into your blood system -- this is always given as ascorbate, and never as ascorbic acid -- which is an acid and a pro-oxidant and would probably kill you !! The ascorbate is the anti-oxidant salt form that the body needs."
05/20/2010: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "The vitamin C I used is either ascorbic acid, crystaline ascorbic acid, or sodium ascorbate. The sodium ascorbate is a more alkaline form of vitamin C. I don't use calcium ascorbate, most of the bone issue has a lot more to do with degenerative bone conditions rather than calcium, and calcium is a problem for tissue accumulation of the calcium, resulting in cysts and stones. The baking soda I used is the ones in supermarket used for baking, but never baking powder. The brand I used in U.S. was Arm & Hammer. As far as Thailand is concerned, I used most baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) sold in supermarket. They are generally food grade."
05/20/2010: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "John,
The problem about commercially produced products is that they contain aspartame, which metabolizes in the body as methanol alcohol. Many countries now do not need to label whether their product contains aspartame and will combine them to call them as "flavoring" or they don't even have to mention that at all. I ended up calling the factories to see if they contain aspartame after being sick taking certain brands of vitamin C, of the effervescent kind, which they sometimes do. They even added in many effervescent product. Flintstones chewable vitamins for children even have it. The aspartame are excitoxins and causes the urine pH to be very acid and took me weeks to get my acidity down to normal. Most commercial product contains food coloring which causes side effect (severe ones) in certain autistic children such as red food color, yellow food color, which are made from a bug. Capsuled form in ascorbic acid causes stomach upset. The only ones that don't caused it is the ones that are pH buffered to 7 to 7.35 pH. Capsuled form if in powder is hard on the stomach. I had some individuals that tried to market sodium and potassium citrate, got it patent as an alkaline buffered, but field testing caused severe heartburn. That's because it's alkalinity and acidity (in ascorbic acid), pH are too different from the body and is not further reduced the concentration when mixed with water. These effervescent product's final pH tends to lean on the acid side to make more pleasing to the senses. Powdered form are generally a lot cheaper and better absorbed if the pH of the vitamin C is neutralized to biologically acceptable pH, as well as further reduction in its concentration by mixing with water. This puts less stress on the intestinal system when sed that way. The "reduced" antioxidant of a vitamin C sodium ascorbate or a baking soda with vitamin C, can be measured using the Oxidation Reduction Potential, ORP, that when measured is in negative millivolts of between -100 millivolts to -300 millivolts. This is clearly very antioxidant as the charges are negative. In fact sacred healing water have similar negative charges, owing to the fact of presence of parts per billion of hydrogen, which these water have a negative millivolts between -100 to -200 millivolts, but they cannot be taken far from the source, as these retain it's negative millivolts for only a couple of hours, while a reduced form of vitamin C are much more stable and can brings similar miracle cures owing to it's negative millivolts. The Europeans have missed out on the healing powers of millivolts by basically analysing the mineral contents of these mineral water, while the Japanese discovered long time ago, at least 50 years ago about the Oxidation Reduction Potential ORP of water, that's important, and they market in various ways, well known is the Kangen water. This is why vitamin C is a much cheaper from of antioxidant water, without spending $5000 on such machines just to get similar results. Also, if a vitamin C ascorbic acid were acid, it will not be antioxidant, but a pro oxidant, depending on the pH of the vitamin C. However, most commercial vitamin C effervescent product tend to be on the acid side, and the non-labeled sweeteners which I have always been suspicious. On numerous ocassions I have gotten very sick taking these supplements and after calling factories, finding out they add aspartame. This can also be found indirectly by checking for urine pH, which are very acid, whenever I consume excitoxins, as in aspartame. Hence if you were to take sodium ascorbate without any problem it's fine. But for most people, sodium ascorbate, as is mixed with calcium ascorbate, and aspartic acid and other things that tend to make it worse. If a pure sodium ascorbate is sold, I will probably get that, but unfortunately pure sodium ascorbate is difficult to source, but ascorbic acid are easier to find which is why I mixed them with baking soda. Some places people can find sodium ascorbate, but for most people ascorbic acid are much easier to find. The other problem is pure sodium ascorbate pH tends to be more acid then the ascorbic acid and baking soda, where the ideal pH should be close to that of the blood pH so it won't disturb the blood physiology, as a result the dose for example if I were to take vitamin C ascorbic acid, it will be say 1/4 teaspoon ascorbic acid , plus 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of baking soda to get a more alkaline form of vitamin C where you get the higher negative millivolts. The body's blood physiology is in the negative millivolts, so it's very stressful for the body to consume those food that has positive ORP. A simple commercial drinking water can have easily from 100 all the way to 300 millivolts which adds stress to the system. Even cooked foods has much higher positive millivolts, while uncooked raw foods has a negative millivolts. Cancer therefore tends to proliferate easier from positive millivolts and this is another problem why vitamin C, as an alkaline form (the more alkaline the better) is preferred, hence, baking soda is added more then your usual sodium ascorbate form. A perfect one should be sodium ascobate with baking soda to get pH in the more alkaline region of 7.5 pH, but I don't think commercial vitamin C will ever put baking soda just to get a higher negative ORP, to raise it's antioxidant level. Sure it's more convenient to take them in capsule form, if you can find them."
