Leukemia Remedies

Oct 18, 2016

While medical treatment is essential in treating Leukemia, holistic treatments are also available. Certain herbs like those found in Essiac Tea are known for their anti-cancer properties, while supplements like Vitamin C support the immune system.

What is Leukemia?

Cancer of the body’s blood-forming tissues is called leukemia. Many forms of leukemia exist including childhood leukemia and acute myeloid leukemia. Typically beginning in the white blood cells, leukemia causes the abnormal production of white blood cells, resulting in the improper function of these infection fighting cells. Treatment of leukemia is complex depending on the type as well as the stage.

While the exact symptoms of leukemia differ depending on the type, several symptoms are indicative of leukemia in general. Fever and chills, pervasive fatigue, overall weakness and frequent or severe infections are some of the most common symptoms of leukemia. Additional symptoms include unexplained weight loss, swollen lymph nodes, an enlarged liver or spleen, unexplainable bruising, frequent nosebleeds, red spots in the skin, excessive sweating and bone pain or tenderness. Symptoms of leukemia are often vague and may resemble the flu or other common illnesses, so consulting a doctor is important.

Alternative Cancer Treatments

While medical treatment is often required of leukemia, several alternative cancer treatments are also available. Acute myeloid leukemia and childhood leukemia often exhibit a rapid onset that may prevent treatment methods. As such, using methods such as essiac tea, vitamin C and goat’s milk can treat the cancer.

Dietary Changes for Leukemia

Detoxing the body, boosting the immune system and changing the diet are important elements of treatment for Leukemia. A diet should consist of no sugar or white flour and as close to organic food as possible.

Home Remedies for Leukemia

Papaya and periwinkle treat low platelet count and support recovery as well.

Acute Myeloid Leukemia  

Posted by Ronniie (Gold Coast, Australia) on 07/28/2015

I was diagnosed with AML in December 2014.This is what I have done:

  • I had chemo, which didn't work, worst experience of my life, so I gave that up as a joke.
  • I placed myself In Gods hands for healing and guidance
  • drink purified water
  • Liquid minerals such as sea MD
  • Eat as much as possible a raw vegan diet
  • vitamin c infusions/liposomal vitamin C/ sodium ascorbate. High dosage daily. The infusions once weekly, but I stopped these a couple months ago and am relying on the other types of vitamin C. You can take it until bowel tolerance which will determine your maximum dosage.
  • Loads of supplements eg SELENIUM, vitamin D, E, K, ionic calcium, ionic magnesium and others
  • Chinese herbal medicine.

I just did a lot of research and bought supplements that were shown to kill AML cell lines.

I got my first favourable report from my haematologist last month. He had me all ready to go to hospital for a transfusion due to low platelet count the previous month (I guess he just assumed with this disease the downward spiral would continue) however this didn't happen. My platelets nearly tripled in number and there were no blasts in my blood.He said he was pleasantly surprised, he said to keep doing what I was doing. That was an amazing statement from him as he does not believe in anything else working except the standard medical route.

I started taking essential oils internally a month before this favourable report.

Essential Oils (Young Living), as follows:

  • frankincense
  • idaho balsam fir
  • idaho blue spruce
  • orange
  • lemon

Here is a great website: trulyheal.com. Please take a look. Chrisbeatcancer.com is also good.

I am happy to read the positive results of this post. My 6 year old grandson was diagnosed with 2nd diagnosis AML and very little chance to survive transplant so my daughter opted for no treatment. Hospice was called, but my daughter took him to a homeopathic dr and has been doing her best to follow diet and supplemental regimen. He is still getting blood counts weekly and they have had some slight improvements but red count is dropping and platelets are staying pretty low. I feel like we are doing something wrong and the MD says he likely only has a few weeks left. The homeopathic dr wants him to do a paleo type all organic diet but it is so limiting because he has so many allergies right now. Wish I could find the answers for this little guy before it is too late. Thanks for posting your good news because it is encouraging and so are the web links you posted.

Hello Pat,

I am so sorry to hear about your grandson.

Some things you can try:

Juicing, carrot, beetroot, lemon, ginger. 1-1 and 1/2 kg of carrot, 1med beetroot, 1 lemon, ginger to taste. When you start off, start slowly with the amount of beetroot as it can cause a detox effect. I add liposomal vitamin c to each glass and drink the whole lot over the course of the day.

The budwig protocol, google it. but basically it's 2TSP of flaxseed oil mixed with low fat cottage cheese, enough cottage cheese to fully mix in the oil. Use fresh oil, barleans brand is good. You can flavour it as you wish, berries are good, you can make it like a smoothie and the eat.

A couple of drops of frankincense oil on the bottom of his feet massaged in every couple of hours. Use a good therapeutic blend

Clary sage oil is supposed to be good too.

In Response to Sarah

Hi Ronnie,

Can you please provide more details about your treatment regimen? I am also hopeful as I read your words. I have a close family member scheduled to start another round of chemo for AML. No remission achieved yet. Thank you!

It really is a work in progress. I do research to try and tweak what I am doing. The main thing is that I am very healthy and happy. I have written a pdf document that I can email to you. In the meantime do an internet search on "the truth about cancer " documentary series by Ty Bollinger. It is being shown online at the moment for free. You have missed the first few episodes but they will re broadcast it, I think.This will give you a wealth of information including practitioners to see and treatments.

One new thing I did learn with regard to AML is that ellagic acid and quercetin increase the effect of resveratrol in killing Leukemic cell lines. You can buy these supplements easily enough. Start your family member on juicing ASAP, I do 1.5 kg carrot, 1 medium beetroot, fresh ginger, fresh turmeric, and one lemon. This yields about a litre of juice, I drink this daily. Use less beetroot initially as I have read that it can cause a detox response. barley grass and wheat grass are also fantastic. You can get the freeze dried powder. With the wheat grass you can get fresh juice as well. Also do an internet search on Bill Henderson, he has a wealth of information.

All the best, Ronniie

I would like any information you could give me on cures or remedies for AML/Acute myeloid leukemia. A dear friend of mine has been diagnosed with this recently and I am trying to find out any information on this that I can, he was involved with Silkwood in 1979 and was exposed to yellowcake uranium.

Is there anything natural or at all we can do to help him? Will look forward to your reply.

John: Hot baths w/ added Minerals will drive out any radioactive isotopes. Equal portions of Baking Soda, Epsom Salts, and Micronized Mineral supplement ag grade found at the farmers center or hardware store.

The herb Sarsaparilla and the antioxidant Rutin both help remove radiation from the body. Lipospheric Vit-C is probably the single most effective cancer remedy known. The herb Astragalus stimulates bone marrow.

Hi there, i am 25 years old diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia. Which is considered acute and agressive.

I need some guidance. I have done 3 rounds of chemo, resisted the rest, and stem cells transplant where my sister is an exact match.

I feel that there should be a better non-invasive treatment. I have read in somewhere below these posts on ayurvedic and how it helps? Can someone please elaborate? and also, someone mentioned using vitamin c s?

Maybe you can try cat's claw also. I've been hearing a lot about this herb from leukemia forums. One cup of vine bark decoction twice a day is the recommended dosage. It is available in capsule and extract form too.

Posted by Lee (Roebling, Nj, United States) on 08/05/2012

I am a 72 year old female in otherwise very good health, diagnosed last week with AML. Having already done some studying about what goes on in this country in the pharmaceutical corporation controlled state of medicine here, I absolutely refuse to submit to the suggested poison in the name of chemotherapy. I have read a great deal about food grade hydrogen peroxide as a remedy for many types of cancer, but have seen no indications about this particular type. Is it possible for oxygen therapy to work inside the bone marrow. I have already begun the recommended progression of dosage, except increasing dosage by 2 drops per day. Tomorrow I will be using 9 drops. Unless I begin getting adverse reaction that is intolerable, I should be up to the recommended 25 drops 3 times per day within 8 days. Then will continue that therapy for another 25 days. I understand there may be some side effects like rashes, nausea, etc. , but that is far preferable to side effects of chemo such as likely permanent heart damage.

Does anyone know of someone who has successfully self-treated Acute Myeloid Leukemia with Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide?

Replied by Timh Donate

Lee, I was diagnosed w/ AML in 1997, refused bone marrow transplant, and miraculously survived. I didn't take any H2O2 but did take lots of Vit-C. The H2O2 has the potential to be a game changer in your condition, but since you may not get the first-hand response you requested, follow the rule "start low and go slow" (which is the recommended method). If you don't get positive results after having reached the maximum dose and perhaps a week or two beyond, drop it and adopt a new protocol. The health advocate Jon Barron of Baseline For Health recommends first buffering/alkalizing prior to H2O2 as the oxygen levels of a well buffered body are many more times higher than not. You can use oral routes for this or (and what I would recommend in your acute condition) take whole body hot baths w/ added baking soda & epsom salts (also is very good detoxifier).

I would also recommend Milk Thistle Seed Extract for liver support as the bone marrow will depress w/ a toxic liver. For immune support do the Thymus recommends that I posted a few days ago under a lupus heading somewhere. This will really help your immune system. Also for the immune system and bone marrow support is the herb Astragalus Root. If you are running a temp it is advised to not use as it will raise temp about 1 or 2 degrees.

Hope this helps and good luck. Report your results.

Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) Remedies  

Posted by Aadhira (Chennai, India) on 01/19/2013

This is Aadhira and my friend is diagnosed with CLL (Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia) . We're based in Chennai. Been mad since I heard this grave news. The doctor had informed that its been there for about 6 months now and he can survive for just 7 more years. He's just 25 years old. The symptoms were unreasonable fever, weakness, sweating and 6 weeks back he had tiny red spots all over his arm. I'd be glad if you can help me where and how we can get treatments. What diet shoould we follow. In all the sites, it is said that it's controllable at the early stage and remission of cancer is possible. Kindly help me.

Hi Aadhira; it is possible that the coumpounds found in turmeric and green tea may be very helpful for CLL.

In your friend's case, it may be better to also have the compounds in addition to turmeric and green tea. Curcumin is extracted from turmeric, and EGCG is extracted from green tea. Curcumin and EGCG can be ordered online.

Best to you and your friend.

Aadhira, I have CLL also, as did my mother. I have had it for 9 years with no treatment yet and my mother had it for 16 years, with the last 5 years of her life, it had transformed into non hodgkins lymphoma. CLL can be a transforming disease, that turns into other types of leukemia or lymphoma's. Your friend should make sure to find out what type of leukemia it is for sure, it can mimic other lymphoma's, hopefully your friend is able to get a second opinion and has a good Dr. who knows for sure what type he is dealing with. You can find a good site for this disease at clltopics.org, it will answer all your questions.

Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML) Remedies  

Posted by Ltina (Columbus Ohio) on 10/31/2013

Hello, I was recently diagnosed with a chronic form of leukemia called CML, I'm taking srycel as a treatment.. I have so many questions I'm not sure where to start.. I'm not a big medicine person so I was wondering of some natural remedies that could cure or suppress the bad cells being created in the marrow? I've been told supplements aren't as effective by the time it gets to the blood stream the body has disposed of most of the good in them.. the liver gets rid of most of the vitamins. is this a waste to take supplements..?? do I have to take great amounts for them to be effective.. dmso I've taken that in the powder form long before my diagnosis just to detox, is that a good choice?

I'm 29 with three kids I still have a looong life ahead I want to be as healthy as possible to be able to live happy with my kids.. The side effects to having leukemia and taking meds are horrible.

Hello Ltina:

On the Chronic Myeloid Leukemia, if you google: "Ray Sahelian MD leukemia natural cures" he has a great article on natural cures and the many connections that produce or trigger leukemia. It's a great article.

He authenticates viruses as a major cause and there are good anti virals discussed on EC.

My favorite anti viral is colloidal silver.

Replied by Mike 62
Denver, Colorado

Ltina: ATP is synonymous with life and at the core of our resistance to disease. In reduced concentrations cells are no longer able to exclude solutes. The components of the cells mutate when they become injured. The pro-metabolic hormone insulin stimulates ATP generation. In the absence of insulin glucose promotes cancer. The famous cancer researcher, Otto Warburg, clearly showed that insulin exerts it's anti-carcinogenic effect by activating the enzyme complex PDH. Warburg noted the availability of blood sugar had no effect on tumor growth in the presence of insulin. Cancer cells are defined by their reliance on fermentation. Glucose, insulin, and oxygen are the fundamental factors that make up the provision of support that prevents cancer formation. The nutrients in raw organic fruits promote respiration. Fructose increases oxygen by carboxylation.

Ltina, I'm 100 percent with Dave on the hypothesis of viral involvement in many diseases, especially cancer. He mentioned colloidal silver; Vit C is also a potent antiviral when taken in large enough amounts.

Garlic, ginger, turmeric, coconut oil--there are many anti microbials that you can easily and cheaply incorporate into your diet.

Take cod liver oil and exercise to make sure that your circulation is good. Cancer causes blood clotting and you also want to make sure the "good stuff" gets to every cell in your body.

A common theme with doctors is that supplements are a waste of money. However, I have had heart palpitations stop immediately after taking magnesium supplements and not come back. I have had basal cell carcinoma dissolve from an eraser sized growth after applying vit C to it.

Another good supplement against cancer is IP6/Inositol. You can find it on Amazon. Also check out proteolytic enzymes.

You are not helpless against this disease. These supplements will at least help you feel better in conjunction with whatever treatment you use.

Replied by Dave Donate

Hi Nano writer from Hotspot.

Re Ltina and leukemia cause.

Excellent advice. I take the IP6 too and have for about a year now. And your magnesium experience and Vit C experience are proof positive that supplements can have profound effects. If we get all the nutrients we need from the food we eat, then we would have virtually no problems except that which is caused by viral or bacterial infections. But even levels which were normal a hundred years ago are now dramatically lower because of what we have done to the ecology of nutrition by phoney fertilizers and poisons. With no crop rotation, the nutritive values are eroded even more.

And, there is a general misunderstanding of what theraputic levels of supplements can accomplish. Reaching the 1, 000 mg level of Vit C takes us to another level in the body to achieve effects for health and longevity. I'm speaking of the free radical scavenger effect.

Also, Nano Writer, if you're not into at least 400 iu of natural E daily, please consider it. At minimum 200. You just can't reach those levels from a nutrition depleted food supply. Vit E makes the veins and arteries slick instead of them being tacky which attracts oils/sugars and other potentially damaging substances which in turn cause oxydation and then inflamation. All that equals clotting. That equals heart/circulation/stroke issues.

Keep writing with more observations. Thanks again for the point specific info and the advice on IP6.

My husband was diagnosed with CML just over a year ago and has responded well to Gleevec. This medicine makes him very sick and the doctor said there is no other option and he must continue to take medications for the rest of his existance to keep his cells from producing the mutated monocyte blood cells assosciated with CML. I am sure there must be a natural cure that will heal him and stop the genetic mutation of BC-BLR genes. If this medicine can remove all traces of CML from his blood, than there must be another substance that can do the same.

Please help, I can not stand to see him suffering any longer.

I would suggest begin using a very high quality/potency multivitamin/miner/w/whole foods and enxymes 2 tabs per meal. Next, begin using antioxidant nutrition. There are so many I can't begin suggesting but just commit to reading all the info on antioxidants and start browsing health food store antioxidant complexes. After you are supplementing a variety of antioxidant the gene protector Resveratrol will take the health to another level.

Also search blood purification and detoxification protocols because there could be some type pathogen involved. Many things affect gene response, so I don't really by the terminal prognosis on that. Love 528 DNA healing music directly affects genes, along with the Resveratrol and all the other nutrition and you shoul see some positive results, at least enough to cut the meds dosage down to comfortable levels.

Auto immunity can also be involved so study up on that possibility. I can't help but dispute a "gene only" diagnosis, as this line of scientific thinking is linking alcoholism, homosexuality and many other disorders as a direct cause. It might be useful to seak a second or third oppinion, as well as all the alternatives offered.

BlackStrap Molasses (BSM) as well as other "superfoods" like Bee Pollen come to mind for regaining health. Cold Showers have miraculous benefits on the body and the mind, somehow "resetting" the endocrine, detox, and immune systems.

I am a little alarmed at these posts. My husband is just recovering from acute myloid lukemia. We are both ' healers' so to speak, familiar with energetic medicine, herbs and other to support and nurture health and prevent disease. However, AML is a VERY aggressive form of lukemia. Please please do not gather hither and thither remedies of the internet! This is something if you want to treat alternatively and you have the luxury of time, which most will not, you must research so very very carefully.

This is truly a life and death matter, we went thte hospital route, and would not wish that ride on anyone, but he is alive. He had a bone marrow transplant and is now crawling his way back to health. Please - as someone who believes whole heartedly in alternative therapies and who is highly wary of doctors, please be SO CAREFUL in getting quick advice for such a serious condition.

And no matter what, keep the door of Faith open, because through that door, extraordinary things can happen.

Replied by Charla

Louise, I am with you on this WARNING. Most of these people CLEARLY have no idea what either Chronic Myeloid Leukemia or Acute Myeloid Leukemia are. Someone even recommended green tea extract to someone taking Gleevec; clearly a no-no. Green tea extract can cause serious side effects when it interacts with Gleevec. For you who are recommending remedies for AML and CML, find out what this is before making uninformed guesses about treatment. I have done HUNDREDS of hours of research since being diagnosed with CML 5 yrs. ago. Being an herbalist of 40 yrs. experience and using myself as a guinea pig, I have had all kinds of reactions, two of which almost killed me. I am getting ready to try cannabis oil but still continuing the Gleevec while on that therapy. For those of you who don't know, CML and AML are unlike any other leukemia. They are not caused by normal metabolic imbalances. Something, usually radiation, toxic chemical exposure or aflatoxin, cause chromosomes 9 and 22 to break apart. Pieces of each chromosome jump together and form a 47th chromosome that makes white blood cells 24/7. I believe that my disorder was caused by a traumatic accident, as the MD identified to the month when this illness started. I heard of Pau d'arco being used by doctors in Brazil in the 1970 for these leukemias before there was any other treatment. There was a forest herbalist in India who used a root on a 12 yr. old boy who was helped, but no followup was noted. There is one Traditional Chinese Medicine remedy known, HOWEVER, people almost without exception, go into remission for 2-3 yrs., then the disorder returns with a vengeance and kills them quickly. I used to have the same kind of rigid attitudes against pharmaceuticals as I have gotten from people I know. When I tell them I am taking a chemotherapy pill, their nose goes up and they haughtily say, Well, you're an herbalist. Why are you taking a drug?" BECAUSE I CHOOSE TO LIVE and few alternatives exist for CML and AML. If I go into remission from the cannabis oil, I will post results.

I have been doing studies on natural remedies for cancer. My husband was diagnosed with bladder Cancer, I was diagnosed with Endometrial cancer and my friend with AML. My husband and I are both in remission and so is my friend, All done with natural herbs and supplements. I had my friend with AML [Acute myeloid leukemia] take Coral Calcium, Milk Thistle, and Oregano Oil with carvacrol 70. After treatment with those three things she went into remission after four months! This is no joke! I did the same, and my husband did also but I had him add frankensense oil to his regimen.

My wife was diagnosed of breast cancer on December 2009 and undergone chemotheraphy and mastectomy the following year. She was on remission after the treatment until now. Last year (2014) of May she was diagnosed of Acute Myeloid Leukemia and undergone high dose of chemotherapy for 4months. She was on remission for a few months. May 2015 AML came back, her oncologist has no treatment to offer. Since western medicine has no plan or know how on curing my wife, we decided to get some treatment from alternative medicine, she was given Intravenous Therapy (Vitamin Minerals, Glutathione, Alpha Lipoid Acid/L-Carnitine Therapy), she started to follow a strict diet and lots of organic veggie and fruit juice hoping her blood count will go up and get healed. After series of blood test and 21 days of mentioned Therapy and others, result was still not good. We are trying the annona muricata (sour sop) leaves, moringa leaves, momordica leaves tea hoping will help her in any way. We are interested in the treatment you use in turning in to remission and we are hoping that you can share us this treatment to help my wife's case.

HI U RONALD, , , , , , , , , , , , I too have a blood cancer and I am going down this trail by my lonesome, because I have no faith in our medical folks. If I had cured my cancer then I'd tell you what to do.

I research like mad and here's what I've learned. Cancer can't live in a high pH, loves sugar, can't stand oxygen, nor heat. So what do I do? I take baking soda in water at daylight and dark. I test every week and try to keep my pH above 7.5. I take Transfer Point's Beta1,3 Glucan every morning to build my immune system. I do ozone every way possible including in a FIR Sauna suit. We eat veggies that we raise. I do lots of supplements. I do transdermal magnesium 20 minutes prior to a shower. I pray to God and will go with his plan. I have a Plasma Rife Machine that is programed to address cancer. All these health toys cost lots of money, but is chicken feed compared to cost of Big Pharma.

Can't tell you what to do, but use common sense. We stopped getting vaccinations many years ago and the latest news makes me thankful.

Hi, my name is Claudia. I'm currently stressing out over my Mom. She had a stroke on January 31st 2015. After taking her to the ER She Was Diagnosed With Cancer IN Her Blood (AML). After a few months of chemotherapy she was in remission. Like 2 or 3 months after that her cancer disappeared. There was no signs of leukemia no more. Dr. Said she's more then 100% good. We were all happy. A few weeks ago 9/8/15 she had a seizure and end up in the ER again. They did tests and everything and all came out good. They said she'll be fine. Yesterday 9/30/15 she went to the Dr. For a check up and he gave us the news that she has leukemia again and this time is moving a lot faster and now is showing in her skin. He said that chemo won't do anything for her this time. Her blood count level went up to 65,000. Now they are not given us any hopes for her. My question for you is, Do you think my mom can still take these supplements to help her go back on remission? Or Do U Think It Won't work for her? I wanna help my mom as much as I can and I'll try about anything to keep her with us longer. I know you are not a doctor but I would really like your opinion on this please.

Essiac Tea  

Posted by Christine (Maywood, Nj, United States) on 04/01/2013

My brother was recently diagnosed with adult acute myeloid leukemia. So I did alot of research about the essiac tea and came across the liquid concentrate. Said to be 6x more powerful. I wanted to know has anyone used the liquid concentrate ? how did they use it?

March 22/2013 he was told he was in remission. No signs of leukemia. So now I want to give him the tea. It says it lowers high blood pressure , my brother is on medication to help raise his bp because it has been so low since his immune system is very low. I showed the bottle to his Dr. and the doctor did say once he goes home he can take it.

My husband was diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukemia, and put on the drug Gleevec. Over the next year, he came down with pneumonia three times. So after doing a little research, I started giving him 5 ounces of essiac tea a day as well as 12,000 mg of vitamin C a day (4 tablets with each meal). It's been three years since he started taking essiac, and he hasn't had pneumonia or even a cold since then. Also he had growths on his saliva gland that completely disappeared without any medical treatment, and his doctor said his leukemia is in remission.

My brother has CML and is about to go on Gleevec. Can you tell me where you got your Essiac Tea? I can buy Essiac Tea at Walmart (but I don't know if this is the right stuff). My brother is trying to keep up with his business and everything else he has on the go. He has low energy, gets nosebleeds unexpectedly and has lost his appetite (he's been taking Imatinib for about two years, but now has to move on to Gleevec).

Hi Connie - In case Pat doesn't respond (her post was from 2009), the Essiac Tea most people use is the original herbal formula from Rene M. Caisse. The bottle has a light green label with a small picture of her on the front (I believe it's from Essiac Canada International). It's widely available at health food stores but I don't know if Shoppers or Walmart carries it. Good luck!

Ollie. Check this web side for detail information how to make Essiac tea


I purchase individualy organic ingridience on internet and make my own tea. It's important to get organic, fresh, and potent herbs. If you make your own mix, you can make the tea stronger and always fresh. Google for bulk organic herbs. I buy from www.mountainroseherbs.com/, but any other place is good.

The advice is good - has to be organic and as fresh as possible. I suspect Walmart, etc. are not the best sources if you are truly looking for the best of the best. Also note that if you are thinking there is a "magic pill" or "magic tea" as it may be here, there is rarely such a thing. With a dis-ease, you will need to attack it from more than one angle. Here are 4 big areas to consider:

1. Detox (includes heavy metal detox for all the exposure your entire life = hair analysis will show how toxic you are),

2. Build the immune system,

3. Starve the cancer (if applicable),

4. Change your diet - no sugar or white flour (feeds cancer), organic 100% or as much as you can, etc. There are a few great diets for people with cancer. For a wealth of information on natural options for cancer and diet information, try www.cancertutor.com. It's fabulous. And find a good N. D. (Naturopath) who you can work with to determine which things are right for you and your specific ailment.

ON VIT C: Vitamin C drips are so powerful, every cancer patient should be doing them. High doses of Vit C IV'd into your system (usually you sit for a few hours while it is done). It does detox you as it supports the immune system so you may feel tired and worn out - that is just a sign that it is working. They do drips of up to 200,000 mgs so thinking you can get the Vit C benefit from pills alone is not true. But even some supplementation will help - no one with cancer should be w/o Vit C in as high doses as the body will tolerate (tolerate means take as much as you can w/o getting the runs).

Be healed!

In the spring of 2015, a 85 year old lady, was diagnosed with leukemia. She refused a bone marrow confirmation of diagnosis and the recommended treatment with Chemotherapy. The oncologist said she would likely not live 3 months, but scheduled a 6 month follow up appointment.

This lady began a daily regime of nettle tea, about a litre a day, eating the boiled nettles, and also made syrup form fresh nettles, taking a few tablespoonfuls a day.

When this lady attended the 6 mth appointment, the oncologist expressed shock to see this woman and disbelief that she was still alive. Her recommendation was to 'continue what you are doing, because it's working'. the lady's blood work had returned to normal!

This woman claims to have helped friends with advanced cancer to stay alive and thrive, taking her tinctures or teas as long as they used nettles daily. However, both of her friends stopped using the cure after 2 yrs, upon feeling so improved. Within 6 mths they were both overcome with cancer once again.

My friend, now 87yrs of age, continues to prosper and work industriously every day while using nettle tea and tincture.

Wishing good health to all.

You can buy Papaya Leaf products on Ebay, they helped short term get my platelet results up, but I have ceased taking it as I hated the taste and for the fact that I am doing so well. It's been over a year since I last posted and can attest my last visit to my hematologist this was his comment. Quote "If I didn't know better and this was your first visit with the blood results, I would say that you didn't have anything wrong with you".

My CLL is totally in remission with all my blood results in normal ranges. My platelet counts this last visit were 280,000. Of course he won't admit my regime was the answer, but did say on the last few visits, whatever you are doing don't stop doing it.

Since my last post in 2013 I have added in pill form a good multivitamin from Rainbow Light, green tea extract pill form 3x a day, garlic 2x a day, 1000 mg Vitamin C in the morning and evening, Tumeric supplement morning and evening, Bilberry once a day, and was on fish oil-not anymore. Also juiced in the morning on an empty stomach one orange, fresh pineapple, fresh papaya, and mixed other fruits in occasionally. I also add juice that I purchased online: 1 oz of goji juice, 1 oz of mangosteen, and 1 oz of noni juice.

I can tell you I feel so good at where I am at now, but its been a rough journey. If anyone would like me to post my specific bloodwork where I was at over the last few years and where I am at now let me know and I can take the time to do so. God Bless all and good luck. Remember we are all different and what worked for me, may not exhibit the same results in your body.

Pam from Alabama,

I used to be an independent rep for a company called Melaleuca (trademarked the real name for our Tea Tree Oil. They sold products with Melaleuca /"Tea Tree Oil" in them. Their oil is pharmaceutical grade, comes from the leaf of a plant in Austrailia, is medicinal and is good for spider bites.

I was bit on the hand in 2011 by a spider while sleeping. I knew it was a spider because the bite had 2 dots where the teeth went into my skin. My hand swelled up like a balloon in 3 days. I went to the hospital and was given an atibiotic and cream which didn't do much of anything.

I remembered the Melaleuca or Tea Trea Oil. Walmart sells the pharmaceutical grade for $7-$8.

I put it on twice a day and covered the bite with gauze. It went away and NO SCAR TISSUE left behind.

It happened again recently on the back of my leg. I keep the oil in my house. Needless to say I skipped the ER and put the oil on my leg. It worked great. Praise the Lord for His natural medicine the world cannot match.

Papaya Leaf, Pau D'arco  

Posted by La0508 (Neche, North Dakota, Usa) on 07/13/2011

In March 2010, a researcher from Univ of Florida stated that he had found that a water extract from papaya leaf had very strong anti-tumor effects. Granted, leukemia is NOT a tumor, but I have heard from people that it had a very powerful effect on leukemia. Papaya leaf is a folk remedy for cancer of all types. Pau d'arco (tabebuia impetiginosa or tabebuia avellanedae) is a specific for leukemia. Check out this site: www.taheeboteaclub.com -- these people sell only taheebo, period (taheebo is another name for pau d'arco)--because their grandfather had inoperable metastatic cancer--and was cured 15 years ago from drinking this tea. I have contacted them and found that their replies to me were very honest and straight forward, not trying to snow me with salesmanship. Their tea is rather expensive-maybe $25-$30 a month, but it is never bitter. There are other good sites to get taheebo, and a VERY STRONG extract in capsule form--called Taheebo Life Tea--google it. I use the tea for arthritis and cardiac arrhythmia, and it is wonderful. I often buy it from www.mountainroseherbs.com. I would certainly use this combination all day long for cancer, and if I had any form of brain cancer-astrocytoma or glioma--I would add boswellia. But that's for another post.

I do leukemia research for a very young relative. I have learned of remarkable success in cancer by an Italian oncologistt using ph therapy but since his protocol required direct access to the tumor site it has scant value for leukemia where the difficult to access porgenator site is in the bone marrow. Systemic high ph would work but the body so regulates it that it is unlikely to achieve levels needed. Is there some way to overcome the body's regulation harmlessly. The body regulates fever, etc.,etc. yet these are overcome. Please help. THANKS.

Dear Jerome: There was a couple of cases I know personally where leukemia was help with raising pH. One case I had from Australia who went into remission from Leukemia, where the scheduled chemotherapy was to take place. The blood pH needs not be raise, but when we take sufficient alkalinity, the biochemical makeup of the body is changed. The leukemia remedy that one case use was 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda plus 1/2 teaspoon of citric acid in 1/2 glass of water taken twice a day. It takes about 3 or 4 weeks to get the body's pH BUFFERS sufficient level where the body can handle or raise its immune system.

Hence, while the urinary alkalinity is raise the blood pH pretty much stays within normal range the only differences is that pH acid spikes don't occur and this is where the body can be sufficiently "alkalinity" from more pH buffers take place in allowing the body's immune system to be high enough where the white blood cells can digest the excess leukemia buildup in the body.

The remedy that was mentioned was an old one, a newer remedy I think that might help raise the body's buffering system necessary to support the immune system is 1/2 teaspoon of sodium citrate plus 1/8 teaspoon of potassium citrate in 1/2 glass of water taken at least twice (preferably) three times a day.

Once this is taken for about a month whichever remedy mentioned, the remedy is reduced to about 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda plus 1/4 teaspoon of citric acid in 1/2 glass of water.

It is the alkalinity buffer which prevents the acid pH spikes, while it is true the body's homeostasis is excellent, it KNOWS that the body is alkaline, from the changes in biochemical portions in the body and the alkalinity nature of the urine pH is also reflected. Hence, we need not raise the pH in the blood, raise in the urine, and get sufficient alkaline pH buffers is all that is needed.

Mind you this is a simple leukemia remedy that I found to be helpful, when the alkalinity is raised, the oxygen levels in the blood goes up, the carbonic acid waste gas carbon dioxide is reduced, and the nitric oxide levels in the body is raised (it degrades needlessly if there is LACK of alkaline pH buffers). Hence to further raise the oxygen, I believe adding 3-5 drops of 3% H2O2 food grade to the alkaline remedy twice a day. The H2O2 also oxidizes toxins by oxidation and this may also reduce unnecessary toxic burden which aids in the body's immune system.

A much simpler remedy of course, if supplements can't be found is 2 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice plus 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass of water taken three times a day.

One other case of cancer that was helped was simply adding 1 drop of clove oil in 1/2 or 1 glass of water three timds a day. After adding this, it is stirred and then drink. However, the clove oil works best when added with the baking soda. Clove oil is the single most powerful antioxidant on the ORAC scale.

Hope this info helps!

Does anyone know where in the USA, I can get the citric acid or sodium citrate mentioned by Ted? Are these normally sold in health food stores? pharmacies? other? I found a citric acid product with home canning supplies, but it contained other ingredients that probably aren't good.

I was just diagnosed with chronic lymphocytic leukemia. I've found a lot of extremely promising info about feverfew extract and leukemia, but then the research seems to just drop off. Feverfew is prolific in my yard. Who would have thought! Green tea and EFA are suppose to be good.

Any suggestions for leukemia will be helpful and appreciated. Of course I could be fine for years with this chronic type of leukemia, but want to do my best to stay well. I have a medically dependent son with Down Syndrome, whose daily health care is complex. There is a guardian to succeed me, but the longer I can take care of him, to get him in the best shape possible, the better, so I need to stay well as long as I can.

A family member had lymphoma and tried raw food diets. He followed Dr. Schultz's (out of California) remedies and flushed for 30 day periods. All raw, all juiced. If you aren't digesting, then your body is healing. You can get all the nutients from foods without digesting when you have juice. He has been in remission for almost 10 years. He wanted to know why this worked. He found that cancer needs salt and protein to thrive. This process takes the body away from salt and protein for periods long enough for cancer to dissolve. You can get just enough protein from green food (spirulina with barley and wheat grasses).

Does anyone have thoughts about green tea and flouride. I've read green tea, even organic, absorbs flouride like a sponge, yet it's recommended by the mayoclinic for chronic lymphocytic leukemia, which I have. Should I take it with something to offset the flouride? I assume risking flouride poinsoning may be worth the benefits for leukemia from the green tea. I did experience a drop in my white blood cell count, which is good, while taking green tea extract, along with ted's ph remedies, EFAs, soy, vit C, more raw vegetables, little to no meat and no sugar, exercise and meditation. Since I stoppoed the green tea my numbers habe been going up slowly.... Maybe the extracts don't have flouride/ Any input?

Casey, the best chance this child has is to receive holistic treatment, not standard chemo only method. There are a number of individual doctors in USA who use nutrition along w/ pharmaceuticals (complementary medicine). Cancer Treatment Centers Of America is supposed to be holistic or complimentary medicine, which can greatly increase the prognosis of survival. I suppose this option could be costly, although I don't actually know. At any rate, getting high quality nutrition in the body would greatly increase survival or simply quality of life. Health food stores have liquid vit/min supplements which could be added to the baby formula.

While the baby is sleeping or awake I would be waging prayer war and positive affirmations of love. Angels will respond and so will the infant. From what is otherwise a nightmare experience, peace and comfort can prevail.

I am very happy for you that you managed to avoid chemotherapy by keeping your urinary pH between 7.0 -7.3! I thought no one read my article!!! I am happy someone is reading it and applying it to improve one's health!

Yes, this is the ideal pH to ward of cancer and viruses. The standards are the same worldwide. The trick is to get the right amount of sodium bicarbonate and citric acid so that your urinary pH yields 7.0-7.3 In this pH range, the blood will be in alkaline state and increases oxygen allowing your body to heal itself and destroy the cancer.

If you want to clear up your pH to other ranges it is then pH 6.5. However, people with a history of cancer, it is best to keep this level for a fairly long time to kill all the existing cancer cells. I imagine keeping this pH and maintaining this level as long as possible.

Of course, if you find it inconvenient, then you need to make sure the cancer will not flare up again, and this can second time could be risky and you might not be able to tame them. It is therefore, best to try to maintain this ideal pH as long as possible for people who have a history of cancer. Oh yes, try adding citric acid AND vitamin C to your mix AND sodium bicarbonate for people with cancer. The ones I gave were for general purpose. For people with your condition some vitamin C and citric acid and sodium bicarbonate might be more ideal for you. The reason is really simple: vitamin C is an antioxidant and anticancer too. Also, a little known information for protection against heart disease (it works better than aspirin) is actually vitamin C also.

Regarding Sebby's post "...my saliva pH can not be raised to above 6.2-6.4...have been on alkaline diet for months..."

Couple things. Maybe you don't have enough calcium/magnesium in your diet? or maybe your vitamin D levels are low. You should get them checked.

Here is an excerpt from westonaprice.org

"Salivary pH Testing for calcium sufficiency: A method of assessing ionized calcium levels has been used by Weston Price, DDS and Carl Reich, MD and has confirmation in current research.73 After determining your serum-D status (testing) and undertaking a program of supplementation with vitamin D, calcium and magnesium, morning salivary pH should read 6.8-7.2. Lower values may indicate insufficient vitamin D (retest), or low levels of calcium in the diet. Look for pH paper with a range of 5.5-8.0 and increments of 0.2. PH papers with 0.5-degree increments are not sensitive enough to monitor progress. (Note: Do not take more than 1,000 IU of vitamin D without testing and supervision by a knowledgeable healthcare practitioner. Calcium can be adjusted within the ranges suggested. Several months of supplementation may be required to show positive results if the deficiency is severe and prolonged.)
