The goal of pancreatic cancer treatment is reverting abnormal cancer cells back to normal healthy cells or at least eliminating the abnormal cells. At any rate, natural treatments are particularly effective for accomplishing this while maintaining the health of regular cells. Supplements in conjunction with a balanced diet and active lifestyle can effectively treat different types of cancer and specifically pancreatic cancer.
What is Pancreatic Cancer?
Pancreatic cancer is a condition that affects any part of the pancreas, an organ of the digestive system. The condition is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth in the pancreas and may exhibit symptoms including pain in the abdomen, yellowing of the skin and eyes, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, weakness, weight loss and acholic or steatorrhea stool. A number of factors contribute to cancer of the pancreas including genetics, exposure to carcinogens, diet, and daily habits.
Natural Remedies for Cancer of the Pancreas
Natural treatments of cancer focus on healing or eliminating the cancerous cells in the body while maintaining the health of normal cells. Several supplements including DMSO, aloe and Echinacea can achieve this treatment method. Eating a balanced diet with limited dairy and sugar as well as staying active also support treatment initiatives.
DMSO is an effective binding agent that targets cancerous cells. When ingested into the system, DMSO binds to the cancer cells and other carcinogenic toxins and drags them out of the system. As the compound targets only abnormal cells, the healthy cells are left intact and unharmed.
Aloe aids in cancer treatment in a number of ways. Aloe also contains specific compounds that serve as binders for removing toxins much in the same way DMSO does. Aloe is also known as an anti-inflammatory compound, which may help reduce the contributing factors to pancreatic cancer as well. Additionally, aloe contains a number of vitamins and minerals that support immune function and can prevent comorbid conditions.
Echinacea is another immune stimulating herb. As such, Echinacea is an effective treatment option for protecting the body against infection. This herb is also able to stimulate the body’s defense against microbes that may be contributing to the cancer itself.
Pancreatic cancer is an aggressive disease that can cause a number of comorbid issues. Intensive natural treatment can help avert those issues as well as treat the cancer at its root.
05/15/2012: Franniekins from Toronto, Ontario, Canada: "Can you help me? I am looking for a diet (any starch or any kind of sugars or raw honey or meat for pnet tumor/cancer that has metastacized to the abdomen. I have a tumor on the pancreas. My condition is similar to Steve Jobs from Apple.
I am also eating the blended cottage cheese with flax oil and crushed flax seeds (freshly grounded) Also digestive enzymes and vitamins.
I refused any hospital treaments. I asked for three months of my own therapy and then?"Replies
05/16/2012: Bill from San Fernando, Philippines replies: "Hi Franniekins... Dr Berkson has one of the best records for curing both pancreatic and liver cancers from his protocol, using Alpha Lipoic Acid(ALA), Milk Thistle, Selenium, N-Acetyl l-Cysteine and Low Dose Naltrexone(LDN) which also involves taking B vitamins and a vegetarian diet.
Normally, Dr Berkson also like to give ALA by direct IV at certain times during this protocol for good results.
See Dr Berkson's website for details of his treatment in New Mexico. It's a simple treatment and one which your doctor, if he or she is sympathetic, can also accomplish easily. Here is his website:

1) combination of horsetail and stinging nettle teas -Health through God's Pharmacy by Maria Treben. A chapter is dedicated to cancer treatments
2) Rudolf Breuss' cancer diet -The cancer cure by Rudolf Breuss
3) Garlic as a medicine -Herbal Antibiotics by Stephen Bunner (the amount of garlic you eat a day is important). In this book you will find also a soup recipe to boost the immune system

05/14/2014: Eric from California replies: "Grace MacCormick is a cancer survivor and is cured from cancer. She has a website about the 2 alternative remedies she used for her brain & lung cancers. She stated Cancer alternative medicine is what made her survive. It is interesting since Thunder god vine is the ingredient in one of these remedies.
The 2 alternative meds made her survive and improved her quality of life and eventually got total healing from both her cancers. These 2 meds are TTG formula & Oriel Herbs Formula . The TTG formula for cancer contains 4 herbs – is the one that contains Thunder god vin or tripterygium herb.

01/14/2012: Rob from Manhattan, Ny replies: "This is interesting news, thanks. I've been a little frustrated by the main stream (60 minutes etc. ) point of view over Steve Jobs death which is "How could someone so smart be so foolish" as to go against his doctors advice, instead choosing a natural approach. Which makes the simple argument that one is nuts to take the natural route.. It may be true that an operation at the onset may have given his body a better fighting chance.. But what they fail to report are the actual methods he did try, specifically so that we the public could learn from his protocol as to what may or may not work... The Alpha Lipoic/LDN protocol is great news especially for a cancer where mainstream gives little hope."
10/10/2011: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand: "The recent death of Steve Jobs, is to explore the cause of his cancer and the unexplained weight loss in cancer and how to prevent that. Steve Jobs actually was a raw foodist, one of his diet as a raw foodist is a fruit consumption, which contain a lot of fructose. So basically sweets are what the pancreatic cancers are most sensitive to, the other one I think cause the cancer was past exposure to nicotine, which during his childhood, he was basically exposed to smoke from this adopted parents. Nicotine does cause cancer in general literature, but if you look closely on pancreatic cancer there is literature that shows it does. The other thing during the development of computers, there is I found, thallium, which is extremely toxic metal that is known used as computer components that may have caused it, but there is an antidote, prussian blue, which removes these very toxic metals. The pancreas is extremely sensitive to sugar, especially fructose, for sure, but he also smoked weed, and it also contains many carcinogenic compound that, if you don't do proper detox, it may stay and accumulate for the rest of your life.
As to the unexplained weight loss before his death, he should also have lack of energy, as the body's immune system (it needs all that energy) to fight off the invading cancer, if he does not properly supplement with that, the body digests itself, it basically has a very high demand for glutamine, branched chain amino acid, and from my own findings, threonine, but this is needed with lysine, which increase the white blood cells too. The cancer also have the ability to turn off the immune system, since the limiting amino acid is tryptophan, so in fact the cancer may derive some of this by digesting the muscles so to get to proper organs, basically you need tryptophan and diindolemethane to prevent the disabling of the immune systems also.
Pancreatic cancer you die quickly, but by having taken more supplements that relate to pancreatic enzymes and baking soda, because you need support, since bicarbonates (baking soda) is the main reservoir for pancreatic functions, but they are especially prone to damage with fructose consumption, which of course must be avoided. In some cases of pancreatic cancer I see, it can lead to pancreatitis, which is traced to virus in the area, but in Steve Jobs, case, its more like past exposures to cadmium, thallium, nicotine, and carcinogen found in weed that is the cause. So that is my idea of the cause of Steve's Job's cancer and the resolving of some of the unexplained weight loss, if he were a client of mine."Replies

10/10/2011: Lon Di from Stanhope, Nj Usa replies: "Dear Ted,
In reference to the following from your article about Steve Jobs, "... Threonine, but this is needed with lysine, which increase the white blood cells too. "... In the case of chronic lymphocytic leukemia, should these supplements be avoided because they increase white blood cells? I'm trying to follow your general guidelines for cancer. Are there any exeptions or changes in strategy for CLL compared to other cancers. I've read about Cesium Chloride, but can't afford the treatment.
Thank you immensly for your wonderful contibutions toward the relief of suffering from illness, which you so generously share with everyone. God bless you!
10/10/2011: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "Well, you just have to understand what causes leukemia, which has nothing to do with Steve Jobs, that's pancreatic cancer, generally. The human diet and animal diet patterns result in lysine deficiency so yes restrictions in lysine will result in decrease in numbers of white blood cells. Unfortunately, the cause is usually a virus, and the biggest threat to all viruses is lysine, as well as other well known antivirals, selenium, zinc, N acetyl cysteine, and vitamin C. But there are lesser known antivirals such as reservatrol, quercetin, which I call vegetable antivirals. There are also synthetic type antivirals, such as aspirin.
Now in cats with leukemia, the usual protocol is actually lysine being one of the main treatments, of course, they also have low red blood cells, which needs epogen, both cases have to do with viruses (mostly) attacking the bone marrow stem cells, which may cause abnormalities in production of red blood cells and white blood cells. So I'm not missing my mark here, but what I can say is for the general cancer therapies applies to leukemia too, but for a condition specifically relates to leukemia is also zinc, selenium, N acetyl Cysteine, vitamin C, reservatrol, quercetin, and green tea extract (with ECGC - epigallocatechin gallate) these are generally very broad spectrum antibacterials and antivirals. The green tea actually relates to tannins, and tannic acid maybe used to, you can picture tanning leather, so basically green tea and tannic acid just kill all invading bacteria and viruses or else you couldn't tan leathers! It just deactivates them. So you can modify the protocol specific to leukemia to include zinc acetate 15 mg for a month, selenium yeast 200 mcg x 2, N acetyl Cysteine 1/4 teaspoon 4 times a day, vitamin C, hourly 250 mg for 8 hours, resveratrol (any amount will do since they are expensive, you can try red wine extract), green tea extract with ECGC, 250 mg x 2, for example. I can go on, of course, there are antiviral plants, the most powerful that I know of, is andrographis paniculata, there's plenty in Thailand as it grows everywhere, if taken in powdered form 1/4 teaspoon twice a day, but is synergistic with lysine. It takes generally 3 to 4 days to get leukemia under control, and that's just from my experience, so everyone will have different experience, but if you want an idea of how long, you can use my experience or anyone experience who used that remedy as a way to measure your success.
Because red blood cells are effected in leukemia, you might concern specifically B6, B12, and folic acid, but you can take just B50 1 to 3 times a day depending on the seriousness of red blood count and weakness too.
10/10/2011: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "There are lesser known antivirals such as lithium, in form of lithium carbonate, lithium citrate, lithium chloride, lithium hydroxide, which are also involved with the maturation of immature stem cells, if the person is deficient with it also, but the dose is low, 1 to 5 mg., or 2.5 mg. of that lithium may help too in leukemia cases, but you also have to avoid the things that make or cause leukemia from the external environment: exposure to x rays, aspartame intake, and chemical exposure (benzene), and others. For this you can detox with wet bentonite clay applied on the skin, wait until dry and do that again 3 times. Magnesium chloride is another lesser known antiviral but is most frequent one I use, since magnesium deficiency is a frequent problems, the typical sign of magnesium deficiency is muscle pain in the back, and may reach the neck.
10/11/2011: Francisca from Michelbach-le-bas, Alsace, France replies: "The loss of weight in cancer patients is calle Cachexia, which is the leading cause of death in cancer patients. There are some very interesting theories on how to stop that in the book: The Cancer Industry (a very interesting book anyone should read anyway! ). One option would be using Hydrazine Sulfate but of course.... this is not accepted by the main stream."
10/11/2011: Elly from Topeka, Kansas, Usa replies: "Yes but good luck getting truly raw almonds today. I was told its a illegal in the US to get truly raw almonds unless you get them from a farmer. I know in parts of California they can grow. They can send them to you but people are concerned about general mail irradiation. Some people who deal with jewlery complained of their pearls and certain other gem stones changing colors in the mail due to what seems irradiation. Someone's got it out for us - passing all these laws. I talked with soem of the California almond growers and they said almonds can go through some steam pasturization and also be spreayed with some chemical and can still be called raw legally. Most health food shops seem oblivious to any of this.

Raw Almond Fight Continues Despite Legal Setback
12/19/2011: Desertpunky from Socaldesert, Usa replies: "Please, everyone-read Dr. Hulda Clark's books. She shows that parasites are the cause of cancer or basically are cancer. Parasites consuming what you eat as well as your body causes weight loss. Why would that make sense? A lot of doctors will tell you that parasites don't exist. Parasites cause all dis-eases and Dr.'s wouldn't have anything to treat if we parasite cleansed ourselves... Makes sense to me. Remember, as long as there is research, there will never be a cure... just no money in cures, unless it is lab created and drug companies can make money from them."
12/20/2011: Timh from Louisville, Usa replies: "The main point Hulda kept repeating is that the human body, once home to toxic chemicals, heavy metals, solvents, cannot rid a parasitic infection once exposed; and as the parasite takes strong-hold adjacent the xenobiotic, spews out toxic waste like bacteria, ammonia and others. Once the following scenario takes place, the immune system inevitably becomes severely compromised. With this entire disease process, the perfect environment for cancer has been created. Hulda says one MUST clear the xenobiotic, kill the parasites, and only then can the cancer be killed."
