There are few conditions so sobering as cancer and with that few conditions so difficult to treat. Previously cancer treatment centered on one approach or the other: traditional or non-traditional; however, recent research shows that a combined or holistic approach that draws from both conventional medicine and naturalistic medicine is the most effective combination. A number of natural cures, such as acupuncture, dietary changes, and aromatherapy and essential oils, have been identified as effective supports to common cancer treatment.
What Is Cancer?
While almost everyone knows about or has heard of cancer, it may seem unnecessary to define cancer. Yet, cancer is such an elusive condition, any attempt we can make to better understand it is an effective pursuit.
At large, cancer is a term that is used for any type of disease that involves the uncontrolled division of abnormal cells. These multiplying cells then spread and invade other tissues via the blood and lymph system.
The term “cancer” encompasses more than 100 different forms of cancer, most of which are named for the organ or cell type with which they start. The main categories of cancer include carcinoma, sarcoma, leukemia, lymphoma or myeloma, and central nervous system cancers.
How Do Natural Remedies and Traditional Treatments Work Together?
As cancer treatment began, the options were extremely limited and often ineffective. Today, however, we have a greater body or research as well as additional options for treatment. This research suggests that no one approach to cancer is best but that the approaches need to be combined to be most effective. The National Cancer Instituted calls this approach complementary and alternative medicine or CAM.
The Institute is conducting more research to solidify the evidence surrounding CAM, but the current anecdotal research is positive. The approach suggests the combination of alternative medicine, mind-body methods, as well as dietary methods to support wellness from all sides. The approach purports the idea that if overall wellness is improved, the body is more capable of fighting on all fronts – physical, mental, and even social.
What Kind of Treatments Are Best?
While a number of different combinations have been suggested, the National Cancer Institute most supports acupuncture and other traditional Chinese medicine approaches, mind-body methods, and nutritional methods. At present, these options have the greatest amount of support.
A recent study published in the Hematology/Oncology Clinics of North America as The Value of Acupuncture in Cancer Care reports that this treatment helps cancer patients deal with the side effects of traditional cancer treatment. Symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, post-operative pain, and cancer related pain are reduced when this method is implemented with treatment.
There is even research to suggest that aromatherapy and other mind-body techniques support treatment. Essential oils such as Roman chamomile, geranium, lavender, and cedarwood help relieve the symptoms of cancer treatment as well as elevate the individual’s mood and emotions, enabling him or her to better fight the condition.
3. Dietary Changes
A number of trials have been and are being conducted to determine the efficacy of nutritional methods. Among those trials is a study on the effects of selected vegetable and herb mix on lung cancer. The idea of this treatment is that nutrients better fortify the body to be able to fight off the condition and associated symptoms.
Cancer is a complex condition that needs to be treated holistically. If you are in the battle against cancer, consider a combined approach that includes traditional methods as well as natural treatments for the most effective treatment plan.

Hello my name is ammoman and I have been using alkaline water since nov. 09 and I have noticed a difference than using tap 7.0 water. I had a brain tumor when I was 13 and given 5 years to live after 5500 rads of radiation, I am now 43 and going strong. I found about alkaline water and started it in 09. What a difference this has made in my life. Great stuff. I have also started sun gazing up to 4.15 min now.

Cancer and Leukemia:
This remedy has been popular in many hispanic countries and many people have claimed that it works wonderfully. Fray Romano Zago -a Brazilian fray who came up with this nice remedy and has used it for several years to cure people successfully- says that this remedy works for all types of cancer (skin, lungs, blood, breast, ovary, etc.). Some people say that it's very effective, even for cancer in terminal stage.
Look for an Aloe vera plant that is 3 years old or more. Clean 2 big leaves (or 3 small leaves) and remove the serrated margins (what look like thorns).
Cut the Aloe leaves in small pieces and put them in a blender or a mixer. Add half kilogram or 500 mL pure honey and 3 tablespoons of whisky (cognac, tequila or other kind of alcoholic beverage would be good too; this is a vessel dilator).
Mix everything until until you obtain a viscous mass. It is ready. You don't need to strain the remedy (just be careful that there are no sharp leaf margins left). Put it in a jar or container.
Directions For Use: Shake the jar very well. Take a big tablespoon, 3 times per day, 15 minutes before each meal. Do this for 10 days. Have a medical check to see if the tumor has reduced. If you don't achieve the desired results after this number of days, repeat the treatment a second time, or a third, or a fourth time until you get cured.
Side Effects: It might produce skin abscesses (but this is a sign that it is working).
Expected Results: In one week you will start seeing results.
Expected Results Within: 1 week

[YEA] I take a tblsp of blackstrap in the morning and "chase it" with a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, with the mother in it, with 3 tablespoons of warm water. In 1994, I was diagnosed with metatastic breast cancer at the age of 53. I had my femur replaced, took 10 radiation treatments and 6months of chemo. I have been on this regimen and KNOW that these things are from GOD made ingredients and, therefore, have kept me well. I have always been a borderline anemic. My blood counts are better than they have EVER been in my entire life. I believe if I had been doing thest things for myself BEFORE I got cancer that I would NOT have had cancer in the first place.

[YEA] I LOVE APPLE CIDER VINEGAR! It helped cure my husband's cancer!! My husband had geosophical cancer and the supposedly top surgeon in Gainsville, Florida, told my husband and I that he had to abort the operation, because my husband supposedly had a "cement stomach?" (which no other doctor has heard of) and that he only had 2-4 weeks to live. We came back home and my husband continued with chemo and radiation and also drank and ate anything with vinegar. We went today to see the results of the last xrays and the tumor and cancer WAS GONE!!! His doctor can't explain it. We haven't told the doctor yet about the vinegar, because we wanted to see if it would actually work. AND IT DID!!! Now, we are going to tell the doctor, because it might and hopefully will help someone else. It has been 4 months and my husband looks pretty alive to me and acts like nothing ever happened. He can eat everything again with no problems at all! We have heard about vinegar for a lot of other things and have also used it a lot for many things, so we figured why not for this. So don't be afraid to try it for anything!

[YEA] Well, let see. Actually, I had made pickled eggs, with apple cider vinegar, 2 weeks prior to going to Gainsville and my husband said that when he got back from Gainsville, he was going to eat them, if the operation went ok. After we got back, and knowing what the doctor had said, he was disappointed and said that he probably couldn't eat the eggs. A friend of his at work told him to drink some apple cider vinegar and see what happens. So my husband came home that night and took 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar, every night for about the first week. Then he said he was feeling a little better and he was starting to eat more food. He then felt good enough to eat the pickled eggs. Then there was no stopping him! He ate about the whole gallon of them and dill pickles and then anything that had vinegar in it. Once a week, he would take a teaspoon of the apple cider vinegar by itself. He started to take the apple cider vinegar, about March 1, 2005. We found out about 4 months later, on June 27, 2005, that the tumor was gone and his cancer had gone into remission. We tell everyone about how the vinegar really helped my husband. I can also tell you ,that apple cider vinegar cures headaches. I know that from my own experience. I had a bad headache and it just wouldn't go away and I had taken some medicine and nothing happened. So I took 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar and amazingly about 1/2 hour later my headache was totally gone. More people should try the apple cider vinegar, because it DOES cure a lot of things. We are TRUE BELIEVERS of apple cider vinegar!!!
The recipe for the pickled eggs is really simple and anyone can do it..
Tami's Pickled Eggs
1 gallon jar
4 dozen eggs
about 1/2 gallon or less of Apple Cider Vinegar
a pinch of red pepper seeds
Boil all the eggs, crack them and put in gallon jar.
Add Apple Cider Vinegar, to fill jar. Make sure all of the eggs are covered.

It's that simple! Enjoy!
[YEA] re: Health/Energy: Ginseng for energy after coping with cancer and chemo. I now drink ACV 2 times a day diluted in water. I enjoy the taste, so it is no big deal. It gives me energy and I just feel better all over.I use 2 TBS. to every 6 ounces of water or juice. I love the taste.

You can find apricot seeds at most Chinese herbal store or supermarket for very cheap.
[YEA] Our 21 year old daughter was diagnosed 2 1/2 weeks ago with cervical cancer. The same day we put her on 15 crushed apricot seeds in applesauce, along with 3 tsp of ACV in organic pomegranate juice. She did this everyday-had a follow up at the Dr. this week they performed a microscopic some sorta test scraped the cervix and took samples. The Dr. called with the tests today---NEGATIVE---he said the cervix looked fantastic
Was it because of the apricots & ACV??? I sure hope so--by the way, she also only ate organic food-no red meat, sugar or white flour.

Hello! I just read an post about arginine, nitric oxide and bicarbonate that was clear and very informative. It does reinforce a lot of Ted posts and reminding us of the genius aspect of Jimmy Keller with his protocol. If any of you is confronted with cancer directly or through somebody close it will inform you. here is link http://blog.imva.info/medicine/larginine-cancer. peace and luck to all!
From a recent medical review of aspirin and cancer over a 4 to 8 year period in the UK Lancet, it has been found that takng a little aspirin everyday helps to significantly lower the death risk from cancer. Ted from Bangkok, for some while now, has already promoted aspirin use to help against cancers, hepatitis C, certain flu and cold viruses and herpes. So here is the proof.
In the USA, a bottle of 100 aspirin pills costs about $1.00. That's pretty good value I would say.
Here is the article:

[WARNING!] I believe the greatest cause of cancer is citrus and citric acid. My aunt died of bone cancer, she drank excessive amounts of orange juice. I am dying from an overconsumption of lemon juice. My father suffered from 13 kidney stones and psorasis from the constant drink of pepsi and citric acid. I am dying and I know citric acid is the cause. Lemon juice kills plants and frogs and people too.

Talcum Powder Linked to Ovarian Cancer
Women have been warned to immediately stop using talcum powder around their genitals, as new research suggests particles may travel to the ovaries and trigger a process of inflammation that allows cancer cells to flourish.
Previous studies have raised concerns over talc, but the latest findings suggest that women who use it are 40 percent more likely to get ovarian cancer.
Experts studied more than 3,000 women and found using talc merely once a week raised the risk of ovarian cancer by 36 percent. The danger rose to 41 percent for those applying powder every day.
