Natural Cures for Cancer

Last Modified on Dec 13, 2014

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.

1. Acupuncture

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.

2. Aromatherapy

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.

Alkaline Water   0  0   

Posted by Ammoman (Clovis, Ca 93611) on 05/17/2012

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. Look up kangen water or rxh20. Great stuff. I have also started sun gazing up to 4.15 min now.

Aloe Vera   1  0   

Posted by Luis (Cali, Colombia) on 05/21/2009

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

Hi Val, I have never used this remedy and hopefully never will have to but from all the research I do, I would venture to say that you should not just buy aloe vera juice to replace the original recipe of fresh aloe from the leaves. The reason being is you have no idea how the aloe has been compromised in its process that whoever made it uses. Often the farther we get from the original form, the less effective. When you are serious about getting really good results you never want to compromise with ingredients. I have been taking fresh leaves from my aloe vera plant and opening carefully to access the gel inside and applying it directly to my skin. The leaves can last a long time. I would recommend reading about fresh aloe vera plants online. Also, just so you know, you can obtain either live plants or just the fresh leaves online. Hope this helps, Lisa

Hi Val, Personally I am not good with measurements at all and can hardly keep track of the units we use here in the US let alone conversions into others. So, what I do is go to the computer and google measurement conversions and a slew of sites show up! Also, make sure that the honey you use is true raw honey as this has not been heated and adulterated. You want all those enzymes and nutrients that are in the real thing. Hope this helps. Lisa

i want to make up the cure for cancer from aloe vera honey and whiskey. Is it ok to put the green leaf part of the aloe vera plant in to the cure mixture. I also have the same question as one of the other ladies how big or what amount of aloe vera do you put in to the mixture. I really need an answer urgently as i have a relitive that is dying with cancer and only has a short time to live. so please if anyone can answer this please do as soon as posible. God Blass

EC: Looks like the remedy calls for the entire leaf of the aloe.

The info on their website does not display properly unless viewed in Internet Explorer:

http://www.aloeveraseeds.co.uk/cancercure.php

..."Here it is: 1/2 Kg of pure bee honey, 3 small (or 2 big) leaves of Aloe Vera, 3-4 spoons of cognac, whiskey or any distilled alcoholic drink. After cleaning the leaves and cutting the thorns very carefully and gently blending everything in a liquidiser you get a creamy substance. And that is it... the remedy that cures cancer"

"... You take one spoon fifteen minutes after your meals, three times a day, one in the morning, the second at noon and the third at night. It is important that you take it after you have eaten something."

"... The dosage is prepared to last about ten days. If you have not finished the mixture you can carry on until you empty the container. If the patient is cured... good... well done. But it may happen that the disease is not completely gone, you must do more tests and compare them to the previous ones. Then assess the need for another dosage until you are cured and repeat the treatment. You are going to be cured. You must persevere. An important detail is to shake the bottle well every time before use"

I mail to say that people who are continuing the aloe vera honey combo for a longer period should have it for 10 days, take a break of 10 days, another 10 days of the remedy, and so on. It is not meant for continuous use. This way it can be taken till the illness is cured.

There is a confusion on whether this combo should be taken before or after meals.(The website mentioned says only after a meal). Many people I know who take it as a cancer preventive (once a year 2 10 day doses with a 10 day gap in between), take it 15 - 30 minutes before a meal.

Father Romanos recipe of Aloe Vera, pure honey and alcohol (cognac, whiskey, etc.) should be taken half and hour BEFORE your three main meals. Also someone ask if you use the green part of the leaf, yes you do the only thing your going to get rid of are the thorny edges, you clean the leaf and blend it with the other ingredients. Good Luck!!!

Apple Cider Vinegar   3  0   

Posted by Janet (Hotsprings, AR) on 07/04/2006

[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!

My holistic chiropractor told me to use the ACV for my painful back stiffness and after several days the stiffness was gone.

My biggest problem about many of the "cancer cures" from using ACV or aloe vera and others is that it is used after chemo & radiation so how do we know what has gotten rid of the cancer?

[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.
Add red pepper seeds. Cover.
Let set in the refrigerator for about 1 month (or a little longer, if you want a stronger tasting egg).
Take out an enjoy. Make sure any remaining eggs in jar, are refrigerated.

It's that simple! Enjoy!

Hello Bee from New York:

You're probably referring to the cyanide content when ingesting the wrong or too much B17 content.

You need to get the bitter/raw apricot kernels. I personally use the Apricot Power brand myself. I'm only using them as maintenance & NOT as a cancer treatment.

The general rule is 1 apricot kernel per 10 pounds of body weight. For instance, I weigh 160 pounds so I take 16 kernels per day. If treating cancer, the dosage is much higher. As much as 30-35+ kernels daily for cancer sufferers.

You can also mix/add taking apricot kernel extract in capsule/tablet form as well. Doing it this way would of course decrease the amount of kernels needed daily. Some say the apricot kernels taken alone cures cancer. Others say it takes a more aggressive approach with other support nutrients/supplements like Vit C and B15(Pangamic Acid), AHCC(mushroom extract), etc. The Apricot Power brand kernels I take are very bitter. They're supposed to be that way though. This shows the laetrile content is there.

I compare the taste to Novacane used for numbing in the dental industry. I always chew mine up really well and hold under the tongue for a minute or two before swallowing. Here's a link with further details: http://www.worldwithoutcancer.org.uk/therapy-compontents/

Hello Rydout from Sterling, Virginia:

If you buy the brand name Apricot Power from either Amazon or their own website these are softer kernels and can be eaten rather easily instead of being ground up. I say this unless you have a mouth/teeth problem that makes it harder for you to chew. These are also non-GMO kernels as well. God Bless and good health to you!

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.

Citrus is not alkaline in the body. Ten minutes after the juice is made, it becomes very acid. If it will eat the enamel off one's teeth, why would you put it in your stomach. The acid dissolves the lining of your stomach and gut and also the blood vessels, as do oils, dairy, & other cholesterol containing foods.

I worked for Dr. Ann Wigmore for over 22 years, helping her to write her books & counsel her students. If you will send me an email, I will send you free the Ann Wigmore Living Food 21 day detox, which is basically what she used the last 2 years of her life when she changed from trayed baby greens to wild crafted herbs to help her students at the Hippocrates Institute in Boston and at the Ann Wigmore Institutes in Boston and in Puerto Rico.

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.
