Holistic Cures for a Brain Tumor

Last Modified on Jan 31, 2016

Any condition that involves a tumor is a concerning ailment; however, when the tumor is located in your brain, it calls for even more progressive treatment. There are several different types of brain tumors and many that are benign, but even a benign tumor in your brain can cause significant issues if left untreated. The most effective treatment plans for brain tumors incorporate traditional medical care with natural cures and alternative treatments like acupuncture, detoxification, and supplements such as vitamin C and CoQ10.

What Is a Brain Tumor?

A brain tumor is generally a large mass or growth of abnormal cells that are found in your brain. According to Mayo Clinic, there are several different types of brain cancer – some of which are benign and others that are malignant. In some cases, the tumor begins in your brain while in others the growth metastasizes to your brain.

While the symptoms of a tumor vary greatly, we do know a number of indicators that may suggest the development of a brain tumor. Common symptoms include a change in the pattern of your headaches, unexplained nausea or vomiting, vision problems, loss of movement in an extremity, difficulty with balance. Problems with speech, confusion, personality or behavior changes, seizures, and hearing problems.

Are Alternative Remedies Effective for Treating a Brain Tumor?

A balanced approach to tumor treatment is typically best, as such a plan incorporates medical supervision with effective alternative remedies. There are a number of alternative treatment options and natural cures that are effective for reducing the size of a brain tumor as well as treating the symptoms of brain cancer. Acupuncture, detoxification, and nutritional support are among the most effective natural remedies.

1. Acupuncture

Mayo Clinic classifies acupuncture as a complementary treatment that may help you deal with symptoms of your brain tumor. This practice utilizes specific pressure points to relieve pain and inflammation throughout your body and may even be effective for removing toxins from your body that contribute to your illness.

2. Detoxification

The Cancer Cure Foundation also lists a number of effective alternative remedies, including detoxification. This treatment is focused on removing toxins from your body that may be causing the abnormal cell growth. You can effectively detox using a number of different options including a colon cleanse, fast, or even a coffee enema.

3. Vitamin C

Vitamin C is considered an adjunctive therapy by the Cancer Cure Foundation, as it helps to balance nutrition and remove toxins from your body. Vitamin C is an important antioxidant that eradicates free radicals from your body and also improves your immune system. You should take at least 75mg of vitamin C 2 to 3 times a day.

4. CoQ10

CoQ10 is another effective nutritional supplement for treating brain tumors, according to medical doctor Julius Goepp. CoQ10 is an important nutrient that helps limit cancer growth by controlling free radicals in your body. CoQ10 is also considered a “tissue-protecting antioxidant,” so it helps prevent damage and can even reverse the effects of damage in your cells.


According to our Earth Clinic readers and contributor Ted from Bangkok, Thailand, DMSO is another important treatment option. This remedy helps reduce the size of tumors as it binds to and eliminates cancerous cells. To implement this treatment, mix fully concentrated DMSO with aloe vera in a ratio of 70% to 30%. Take 1 tablespoon of the mixture by mouth twice a day and eat a strictly whole food diet for at least 3 days.

Hoping / praying this post will finally reach Ted's attention. A family friend was diagnosed with brain cancer. The cancer type is a multiformer glioblastoma. It is the size of an egg, (5 cm). He has 4 months to live or even less. I read his post about DMSO.

I would very much appreciated if Ted could advise me, as to the following:
1. Should the patient take it internally or externally, or both ways?
2. At what concentration (70%) ? and what dosage (1tsp) ?
3. Where to find a food graded DMSO in Europe?

At the moment the patient refused chemotherapy and radiation. He is taking apricot seeds (around 40 daily). Should had he taken B-17 tablets too? mcg daily?
Could we dissolve the B-17 tablets to a DMSO solution? how will we mix it?

Upon Ted's request I could email his CT

Your reply will be very much appreciated! God Bless You All! P. S. I tried to send a mail to Ted to the following address: But I received a daimon failure message that the address is incorrect! Could you please send me Ted's New mail? thank you indeed!

EC: Hi Evagelia, Ted's email address is still: We will email Ted your post and ask him to respond.

1. Should the patient take it internally or externally, or both ways?
Both ways.

2. At what concentration (70%) ? and what dosage (1tsp)?
It doesn't work that way, must be 100%.

3. Where to find a food graded DMSO in Europe?
No idea, haven't been to Europe for the past 20 plus years.

DMSO only works when you mixed with aloe vera oil only. That is 70% DMSO and 30% aloe vera oil.
Aloe vera oil is taken at least 20 drops 3 or 4 times a day. Cancer tumors will reduce in size with certain reducing agents that are less dependent on pH. A common reducing agent, but is somewhat dependent of pH but very easy to find is lemon juice with baking soda. Must be on a strict no food diet for 3 days especially no fructose and no sweets, taking only nothing but lemon (preferably lime) and baking soda at pH 7.4, usually can tame the tumor in 24 to 48 hours. There is other uncommon reducing agent, such as hydrazine sulfate, but I prefer to mixed in either drinking water or lemon juice, or I may use other forms to dissolve or convert tumors into normal cells, but there may be a few rebel tumor that migrate further from the body such as the hands or feet, when such reducing agent is used. Reducing agents mostly stops fermentation, which is how wine making is done also. So we know the technology for a very long time in getting rid of cancer this way.

Most people with cancer have the following profiles from my private research has deficiency of lysine, zinc, glutathione, vitamin C alkaline form, potassium, hydrochloric acid and high arsenic, and high lead. Best chelator for lead is lemon juice and baking soda. The simple reducing agent for lime juice and alkaline form of ascorbic acid, will reduce the oxidative high arsenic. Aloe vera oil quickly repairs damage cells, which is why it is commonly used, such as burns, emphysema, etc.

Dr Mercola just put this article up about the ketogenic diet and cancer - no sweets just protein & healthy fats help fight cancer. There is other information there as well. Hope it helps.



Story at-a-glance

Many cancer patients have reportedly overcome the disease by adopting a ketogenic diet, which calls for eliminating carbohydrates, replacing them with healthy fats and protein Animal studies have shown that mice fed a carb-free diet survived highly aggressive metastatic cancer even better than those treated with chemotherapy Your normal cells have the metabolic flexibility to adapt from using glucose to using ketone bodies. Cancer cells lack this metabolic flexibility, so when you eliminate carbs, which turn into sugar, you effectively starve the cancer Eating fat is NOT bad for your heart. Particularly beneficial fats include coconut oil, butter, organic pastured eggs, avocado and raw nuts. Most people need as much as 50-70 percent healthful fat in their diet to optimize health

Bill from San Fernando,

Can you clarify what it means taking Aloe vera oil 20 drops x4, is it in addition taking 70% DMSO mixed with 30% Aloe oil ?

Per Ted's post: DMSO only works when you mixed with aloe vera oil only. That is 70% DMSO and 30% aloe vera oil. Aloe vera oil is taken at least 20 drops 3 or 4 times a day.

The best person to know how to help your dog is Skip Lenz, a pharmacist and PhD. He knows the most about low dose naltrexone for pets and how to compound it properly. He will work with your vet to find the best path to follow. He ships all over the world. You can call and talk to him yourself. He is very devoted to helping animals. Best wishes.

John from Florida;

Re the Brain Tumor issue...

Please relate whether the tumor has been biopsied. Is this a confirmed cancer and if so what kind? Is this a confirmed metastasized tumor? Is this tumor deemed to be aggressive? Is there more than one in the brain? Does your surgeon assert that this tumor will aggressively grow? Where is the tumor in the brain and what are your symptoms?

Some brain tumors are easy to get to and some are easy to treat. Some tumors although present, are not deadly. Are you absolutely sure the tumor is not a "sebaceous tumor" which will likely not be aggressive?

Please fill us in on the details. And...have you gotten a second opinion? Especially, has this tumor been proven to be metastasized? (Metastasized cancers are known to be much more aggressive.)

My favorite cancer treatment program is Dr. Nick Gonzales in Manhattan. You can google his name and find his web page.

So very sorry you are going through this. Stay calm.

Hi John,

I am sorry for the delay in responding, but I was waiting for permission to post this information here from the original creator. His email was hidden in my spam and I just saw it today. He has developed a site with many useful links, and is a proponent of LDN (Low Dose Naltrexone) and therapies that can accompany it. LDN is seldom a stand alone treatment, but is very helpful for many ailments. Here is his site:

Best wishes to you and anyone else who may benefit.

I have known for some time that I had a serious illness but the doctors chose to skirt around the issue, now that I am older and this illness has progressed severely beyond repair, I found I have spinal & brain tumor.I have been doing herbs, nothing in particular just read up on medical issues.I feel at this late time in life every thing is trial & error. Twenty years ago the Drs. told me I had only five years left to live. The only real thing I do 24/7 is thank God for day light, thank him for the food I receive and thank God for my many blessings.I feel it's mostly prayer that has kept me here to show the system I can beat fate if I pray and strongly believe I hope to over come most issues that come at me full force// Pain.

My lovely cousin, in his early 50's with three kids, has a stage 4 brain tumour (glioblastoma) and will be starting on his second round of chemotherapy this week. I'd love to start him on the DMSO but am just so confused by some of the information out there and would really appreciate if anyone could give me some feedback, thanks.

Here's the parts I can't figure out :)

1. Is it safe for him to use the DSMO gel with aloe vera topically on his head DURING chemo treatment.

2. Can he apply it via a 100% cotton pad (or is their cotton bleach issues etc.) It seems as if applying it by hand really dries out the skin too much?

3. If everything is carried with the substance on the skin internally and people are told to cleanse the skin super carefully, how can a person cleanse and not have the residue of the chemically rich soap etc. on their skin?

4. Is it effective enough just to apply the DSMO/ aloe vera juice dilution. Does he need to be adding another product or will this effect a change on it's own. (it's just he's on a lot of herbs, supplements etc already).

I have really tried to get the answers to these questions all everywhere but amn't doing to well, Apologies to have to ask for help! :)

I will be back on soon to describe the protocol he's on and how he's finding it so far. I just want to sort out these last few products for him to use and get the info to him first.

Thanks earth clinicers! :)

Here is an article from Life Extension magazine with some new information on treatments for glioblastoma. It is strongly linked to a virus, and there is an antiviral that is effective for it. The cost is high, however, and perhaps since it is a lipid coated virus, Oscar's BHT may also be an option, if insurance won't pay for the antiviral mentioned in the article. Best wishes for healing.

Replied by Anneh

Thanks so much for that information RSW - I'll start looking into that today!

And just to say with respect of the DSMO for anyone else who is seeking the same information - I've since found out that it's recommend to have a 72 hour gap post chemo before using it and that DMSO shouldn't be taken within two hours (before or after) of taking any prescription drugs (like steroids).

I had a great deal of Help of a lady called Emma who sold me the DMSO from online in the U.K that it should be used at a 12% dilution for head neck areas (and I bought their DMSO aloe mix to be delivered to him).

She also said just wash your hands well and then put a few blobs on the back of the neck. She suggested a few books from Amazon too.

(I didn't buy it off the Irish site btw as the guy on the phone hadn't seemed to have heard of it. I liked the U.K site as they had good recommendations and links to one of the biggest researchers and it was just dedicated to DSMO).

I'll update here when I know how he got on, his next brain scan is post xmas. (He is doing a lot of other holistic stuff too though). When I have time I'll list those.

Best wishes,

Hello Ted and everyone,

Congrats for this amazing site.

I have my girlfriend's cousin diagnosed with a type of brain cancer called glioblastoma.

Tomorrow she's gonna start chemo therapy by tables for 5 days cause the doctors said that it can't be operate and then she will start radiation.

I can't convice her not to do them. I strongly believe in a naturally way of healing.

But I also want some advise from Ted or anyone...

I know that H2O2 really works but I don't aware of the doses that propably will need. If she starts the chemo will the H2O2 cause any kind of problems except of the stomach problems?

Is the ACV with Baking soda will work?

Or anything else? please

Thank you very very much for yous time and advices

Google phosphates and percy weston. He said that cancer thrives on phosphates in food. Most of our food is now saturated with phosphates. Percy lived to be 101 and cured himself twice of cancer as well as his wife. He has a good book available that he wrote when he was 97. Your cousin will need to substantially cut down on foods with phosphates in them as well as all sugar. Wheat apparently has high phosphate in it. A gluten free/casein free diet is a good start. Most processed food including sodas have phosphates in them.

They also apparently take calcium out of our body so everyone should supplement with calcium and magnesium.

Gregory, I have read that Enada ® NADH in high doses can help prevent apoptosis of the healthy cells and greatly diminish the negative side effects of chemo. including DNA damage.

Search the Birkmeyer website for the article, it's in PDF form.

Supplementing any other antioxidants will increase power and lifespan of the NADH and visa versa. Yes, keep the body buffered with Baking Soda, add some Epsom Salt in a hot bath daily and 1grm Vit-C every 2-4 hrs. The NADH recycles oxygen over and over thus making it one of the most powerful antioxidants, so it's proly as or more effective Oxygen booster than H2O2, (just guessing); alkaline body PH also greatly boost Oxygen levels.

Drink Green Tea by the gallon as the body needs hydrating and the kidneys need supporting, and the GT is anticancer herb.

20 mg NADH are readily available in health food stores online or on location, cost can be a problem for some folks, so I would advise shopping around if necessary.

Hope this helps and good luck.

Hi, just joined a still not sure if this is in the right place. Good work on the site, great concept!

Been diagnosed with a grade 2 glioma and had 85% removed in November, recovered quite well except for memory and tiredness! But fit as a fiddle other than that! A little under weight still but was skinny before. Smoking plenty of pot not sure if this with help but does help dealing with the situation a least. Trying to work on a plan but being caught in the big pharma gold mine is rubbish! And after 7 months still not sure what to do. Gonna make some rick simpson oil in about 20 weeks for sure. Would love help on this plan as my surgeon is bound by the 1939 cancer act which leave him speechless. I'm using turmeric, pot and so spiritual healing so far. But feeling the list is small maybe?? Kind regards

Google Laura Arasmo's brain cancer. She has documented her fight using LDN, and documents every supplement and medicine, detailing the reason for using it. I think she also used DCA. Duke University was doing a trial with LDN and gioblastomia, and you may want to look at that, too. Of course, Ted's recommendations on this site are always something to investigate. He has a lot of practical experience treating many different ailments. Best wishes.

@Caleb: Lots of info on beating cancer here on E.C. as well as many other alternative publications and web sources. In a nutshell, the diet needs to be low in sugar (also be sure to get the mineral chromium and the herb cinnamon in the diet for burning sugars), low in sodium, high in antioxidants, low in saturated and high in omega 3 fats. I am a big believer in the "energy model" that stipulates that the optimal cell voltage/energy prevents the cancer development.

As for the pot, the "smoking" method needs to go and adopt an oral by first heating the cannabis in a fatty food medium like butter.
