Stomach cancer (gastric cancer) is uncommon in the United States and actually decreasing in occurrence, though it is much more prevalent in certain areas, such as Japan. As with other cancers, stomach cancer is characterized by the uncontrolled growth of the body's cells, in this case cells found within the wall of the stomach. Most stomach cancers are adenocarcinomas, which form among the stomach's glandular cells.
Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) presence in the stomach is a major factor in stomach cancer occurrence, as is poor diet, tobacco use, and gender (male). However, a stomach cancer tumor is very survivable if caught early. Unfortunately, late stage stomach cancer has a low survival rate, and early symptoms are minimal and hard to differentiate from other typical forms of stomach distress.
Natural Cures: Natural remedies for stomach cancer are limited, though some evidence exists to support Indian Gooseberry and Lu Feng Fang, a Chinese herb, as anti-cancer natural treatment options.
01/08/2011: Mandy from Theodore, Alabama: "My husband has gastric and esophagul cancer. He is in stage 4 and was given 8 months to live 17 months ago. He has taken different forms of chemo and radiation during this period of 17 months. The radiation did a great job of shrinking his tumor which has grown outside the stomach lining. Does ACV work for stomach cancer? Reading several of the posts, I see that it causes trouble in the stomach, so I just wondered. He is worsening now and his tumor has grown back to larger than when he was first diagnosed."Replies
01/09/2011: Rob from Manhattan, Ny replies: "Hi Mandy.. I've posted this advice before.. Which is info about boosting the bodies immune defense.. Look into LDN, low dose naltrexone... A drug initially used for drug withdrawal, they found in low dose 4.5 mg before bed has a dramatic endorphin/immune response.. see here:
also a good (pricey) immune booster like AHCC, and a mushroom formula... I believe these will compliment any other methods he will decide to go with.
remember high greens diet, no sugar, lots of turmeric and flax seed (ground) organic if you can afford it. There is info on the web about Inositol IP6 and lung cancer but not sure about it's effects on stomach cancer... it may be something to look into. best"
01/11/2011: Heal from Mogi, Brazil replies: "Hi Mandy, I'm sorry to hear about this situation, but know that there is a way out, you just have to find it. Trust that the answer is out there, and it will come to you.
I suggest that he adopts the Gerson protocol. I'm not a doctor and I'm not in a position to recommend chemo and radiation cessation, but if anything, organic fruit/vegetables (for nutrition) and coffee enemas (for liver detoxification) cannot hurt (it makes perfect sense actually). Don't get discouraged. Have him stay away from fat, sugar, animal products, and all processed food. Focus on clean nutrient-dense organic raw plant based foods. There are plenty of books on it, and also movies which will provide a good intro ("Dying to have known", "Food Matters") for example, they might even be legally available online, just google it). Contact the Gerson Institute (http://www.gerson.org/) as well.
There are other solutions out there as well. Do not accept the fatal opinion given by orthodox doctors.
Best of luck!"
[YEA] 08/21/2008: Mary from Troy, N.Y.: "My dad used apricot seeds and b17 for cancer. Dx with stage 4 stomach cancer to the liver he was not given much hope. Although he did have 5 chemo treatments I believe it was the b17 that put his cancer in remission. He is now cancer free even though the doctors said he never would be.
He takes 20 apricot seeds a day and 3 500mg tablets of the b17 pill form. He also takes 2 tbs of goji juice and eats a little pineapple everyday. The goji juice for the zinc and pineapple for the enyzme that you need with b17."

Despite pain med she feels lots of pain in her stomach. She did get part of intestines removed in the operation 2 years ago along with diaphragm and overy and other parts its to hard for me to try to remember. Now she's feelind dizzy often. Shes been vomiting and has little appetite. After the first Chemo her cancer level went up quickly. I want to give her BHT But she dont want any more pills. Can I crush the pills. What can I do.

12/12/2013: Mike 62 from Denver, Colorado replies: "Rose: Eating the best foods the right way provides dozens of nutrients and hundreds of cofactors the cells require. Start her on foods that do not require digesting like kimchi, non gmo red miso, colostrum, raw cocoa powder, raw wildflower honey, and liquid marine phytoplankton. Make water kefir from sprouted flours and whole cane sugar, green smoothies from organic baby leaves, and eat organic berries. Watch raw food for cancer videos. The 80/10/10ers have had good success with this issue. Study the Andrew Kim Blog why cells go bad. He gives a technical explanation for increasing the respiratory quotient and improving zeta potential."
04/03/2009: Lloyd from Torremolinos, Malaga, Spain: "I personally visited Dr. Johanna Budwig in Germany in the year 2000. She passed away in 2003 at the age of 95 from a fall. Dr. Budwig was nominated 7 times for the Nobel Prize Dr.Budwig had over a 90% success rate with this protocol with all kinds of cancer patients over a 50 year period. Dr. Budwig worked with many patients who were terminally ill and some who had only hours to live. Dr. Budwig explained in her books that her healing plan works on improving the cells of the body. It doesn't matter where the cancer cells are located or what name if given to your cancer because the Budwig program gives cells what is needed in order for them to normalize in their functioning process. Her approach successfully treated the cause of all types of cancer, such as breast cancer, lung cancer, brain cancer, prostate cancer, Bone cancer, Carcinoma, bladder cancer, cervical cancer, esophageal cancer, stomach cancer, Leukemia, Hodgkin's disease, skin cancer, etc., and other common serious illnesses such as such as Arthritis, Asthma, Fibromyalgia, Diabetes, Blood Pressure, Multiple sclerosis, Heart Disease, Psoriasis, Eczema, Acne, and so on. She used a unique formula of cold pressed flaxseed oil and low fat cottage cheese with a little honey. Many people of heard of Dr. Budwig and may even have tried to follow her recipe. However unfortunately there is a lot of misinformation on her protocol on the Internet and if it is not followed exactly as she discovered and explained in her research the results could be very disappointing. As I obtained copies of all her research and have shared it with many others todate I would be happy to share her exact formula with any who request it on this forum. I often write about Dr. Budwigs formula for a local English Newspaper here in Southern Spain.

10/14/2013: Mary from Argentina: "Tumor obstructing intestine:
Hello. After wrongly being told to have test for bone cancer (they where wrong) also told I had RA, (wrong again) and told to have a hysteroctomy becuase my fibroid was blocking my colon and have a tumor on my ovary. (wrong again) I insisted on a colonoscopy onThursday. It shows a tumor, does not look good and even though encapsulated they did a biopsy so now I have one more trouble that could have been avoided. I refuse surgery that they want to do in a few days and chemo is not an option for me. Pleas, may I contact Bill from the Philippines for Ted did not answer. I would like to know if maple syrup and baking soda is an option or any sugestions like a Mexico clinic. Or mistle toe or any other theraphy. I am really confused and a bit in pain.

Re: Obstructing Tumor
Hello Mary. I know you are frightened and confused. By writing on this site, just know that many, many are praying for you now. Praying you have wisdom in dealing with this attack and even a miracle to take it away.
If faced with this, I can't say what I'd do. You call it "obstructing" and that is dangerous. Very likely I'd opt for the surgery to make sure that at this stage it did not become lethal. That would give me time to decide how to handle follow up treatment; conventional or alternative. Mary, my wife was saved from an obstructing tumor ten years ago by a wonderful, caring Christian surgeon who stayed up on a New Year's Eve operating on her instead of going to a New Year party. God can direct surgeons. Sing songs of victory like How Firm A Foundation:
"Fear not, I am with thee, oh be not dismayed,
For I am thy God and will still give thee aid.
I'll strengthen thee, help thee and cause thee to
stand; upheld by my righteous, omnipotent hand."

I don't have an answer to your questions, but I assume that you would have to read a lot and then experiment on your own body, as every body and every cancer responds in it's own way."

Well in this article someone stopped all forms of sugar. Basically all sugar and carbohydrates were cut from the diet.. fruit, milk (contains lactose which is a sugar), breads (convert to sugar), everything.. The cancer ended up dying.

08/15/2010: Brooke from Montgomery, Tx, Usa replies: "What about a tepid bath (85 - 95 degrees) and some camphor in the bath. She might be highly toxic. And then do Castor Oil packs for 5 days on and 2 days off, repeated for at least 2 months. I would also try the 5 day citrus diet - eat nothing but citrus for 5 days and then gradually go on an Alkaline diet, starting with lettuce and small veggies. I wouldn't eat any more red meat at all. Just lamb, fish and chicken. But the key is to keep the body 80% alkaline to 20% acid. Hope this helps!"
08/16/2010: Marlane Ellis from Geelong, Victoria - Australia replies: "Hi Brooke - Magnesium Chloride (aka Nigari Flakes) in bath, and nebuliser. Also nebulise with Bicarbonate of Soda - Cancer cannot survive in an alkaline environment. Use both, neither is toxic. Because your friend cannot eat nebulising is the perfect solution. Good luck."
07/16/2012: Miserable_in_bama from Oneonta, Alabama, United States replies: "1/2tsp baking soda in 8oz water 2x a day, cancer cannot survive in an alkaline environment. Good for any cancer. Since we have acidic bodies from all the sweets we eat, it thrives in that environment.
Buy some PH strips, and test several times a day. Baking soda will not only help with stomach pain and indigestion, but will help kill the cancer. Do not drink on a full stomach, it's ok to have some food, but not a full stomach or you can damage the lining. I suggest chamomile or peppermint tea, it's soothing on the stomach and digestiive system, and also basil & parsley, which are also in the mint family, use in cooking to help stomach pain.
Cat's Claw, an herb & "wild' oregano grown in the mediterrean, make sure it's really oregano, many herb companies pass of majoram oil as oregano. It should be (Origanum vulgare.) It contains a minimum of 70% of the most active ingredient, a phenolic called Carvacrol. The other % is a carrier oil such as almond oil. It's not cheap, but it's the strongest anti-bacterail, anti-viral, anti-fungal known to man.
Also, cancer cannot thrive in high oxygen, so deep breathing and fresh air is a must. God Bless"
08/11/2010: Marilyn from USA: "Hello Ted, My mother-in -law was diagnosed with stage 3 stomach cancer. Can your recommended remedies still work at this stage? Her main problem at this time is weakness, nausea and her inability to eat a whole lot at once.
Hope to hear from you soon.
08/11/2010: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "Dear Marilyn: Late stage cancer can be helped with drops of clove oil given throughout the day helps, but most especially helpful is 4-8 drops of Hydrochloric acid in 250 cc of water and drink slowly throughout the day. Methylene blue 0.1% maybe added to the solution with hydrochloric acid that was added to the drinking water. The hydrochloric acid I used is a 35% solution and put in a dropper bottle and is added at between 4 to 8 drops into a glass of water of 250 cc. This is drank slowly with use of straw. What it does is it converts pepsinogen to pepsin, so that the stomach can work digesting the food as pepsin is required to digest the protein. When stomach doesn't work because it lacks stomach acid, then you can't eat. I do know that stomach cancer rates in U.S. is lower then Japan due to dietary differences in the consumption of BHT. If BHT supplements are taken at 250-500 mg this may delay the stomach cancer. Clove oil I have found to be useful too. Pancreatic enzymes if taken at very large doses, has a reputation for digesting the cancers in general, including bromelain supplements as well. The problem is obtaining this supplements, in large amounts since most supplement companies do not sell that much also. A progesterone cream maybe applied to the neck also to reduce some nausea and loss of appetite is possibility since currently accepted treatment of giving progesterone (I believe its megestrol) is used to stop cachexia and buy time. In the long run the use of lysine, threonine and glutamine once cachexia is reduced to kill off the cancer, as well as tannic acid. The lysine, threonine and glutamine is taken at 1000 mg hourly dose for at least 4 hours twice a day. The tannic acid can dry up cancer stomach relatively quick at 1/4 teaspoon twice a day in 1/3 glass of water, three times a day. A person maybe experiencing some swelling on the first two or three days as white blood cells start attacking the cancer, thereafter, the swelling is reduced. It helps to reduce some bloating if EDTA is used (tetrasodium EDTA) 30% solution taken at 20 drops for example, to help circulation.
