I received the below from a friend, and thought it may be helpful for some people out there. Good luck!
My Mom had been taking the full-stalk canned style asparagus that she pureed and she took 4 tablespoons in the morning and 4 tablespoons later in the day. She did this for over a month. She is on chemo pills for Stage 3 lung cancer in the pleural area and her cancer cell count went from 386 down to 125 as of this past week. Her oncologist said she does not need to see him for 3 months.
Several years ago, I had a man seeking asparagus for a friend who had cancer. He gave me a photocopied copy of an article,entitled, `Asparagus for cancer' printed in Cancer News Journal, December 1979.
I will share it here, just as it was shared with me:
'I am a biochemist,and have specialized in the relation of diet to health for over 50 years..Several years ago, I learned of the discovery of Richard R. Vensal, D.D.S. that asparagus might cure cancer.
Since then, I have worked with him on his project. We have accumulated a number of favorable case histories. Here are a few examples:
Case No. 1, A man with an almost hopeless case of Hodgkin's disease (cancer of the lymph glands) who was completely incapacitated. Within 1 year of starting the asparagus therapy, his doctors were unable to detect any signs of cancer, and he was back on a schedule of strenuous exercise.
Case No. 2, a successful businessman 68 years old who suffered from cancer of the bladder for 16 years. After years of medical treatments, including radiation without improvement, he went on asparagus. Within 3 months, examinations revealed that his bladder tumor had disappeared and that his kidneys were normal.
Case No.. 3, a man who had lung cancer. On March 5th 1971, he was put on the operating table where they found lung cancer so widely spread that it was inoperable. The surgeon sewed him up and declared his case hopeless. On April 5th he heard about the asparagus therapy and immediately started taking it. By August, x-ray pictures revealed that all signs of the cancer had disappeared..
He is back20at his regular business routine.
Case No. 4, a woman who was troubled for a number of years with skin cancer.
She finally developed different skin cancers which were diagnosed by the acting specialist as advanced. Within 3 months after starting on asparagus, her skin specialist said that her skin looked fine and no more skin lesions.
This woman reported that the asparagus therapy also cured her kidney disease, which started in 1949. She had over 10 operations for kidney stones, and was receiving government disability payments for an inoperable, terminal, kidney condition. She attributes the cure of this kidney trouble entirely to the asparagus.
I was not surprised at this result, as `The elements of materia medica', edited in 1854 by a Professor at the University of Pennsylvania, stated that asparagus was used as a popular remedy for kidney stones. He even referred to experiments, in 1739, on the power of asparagus in dissolving stones.
Note the dates!
We would have other case histories but the medical establishment has interfered with our obtaining some of the records. I am therefore appealing to readers to spread this good news and help us to gather a large number of case histories that will overwhelm the medical skeptics about this unbelievably simple and natural remedy.
For the treatment, asparagus should be cooked before using, and therefore canned asparagus is just as good as fresh.
I have corresponded with the two leading canners of asparagus, Giant and Stokely, and I am satisfied that these brands contain no pesticides or preservatives.
Place the cooked asparagus in a blender and liquefy to make a puree, and store in the refrigerator. Give the patient 4 full tablespoons twice daily, morning and evening. Patients usually show some improvement in from 2-4 weeks. It can be diluted with water and used as a cold or hot drink.
This suggested dosage is based on present experience, but certainly larger amounts can do no harm and may be needed in some cases.
As a biochemist I am convinced of the old saying that `what cures can prevent'. Based on this theory, my wife and I have been using asparagus puree as a beverage with our meals.
We take 2 tablespoons diluted in water to suit our taste with breakfast and with dinner. I take mine hot and my wife prefers hers cold. For years we have made it a practice to have blood surveys taken as part of our regular checkups.
The last blood survey, taken by a medical doctor who specializes in the nutritional approach to health, showed substantial improvements in all categories over the last one, and we can attribute these improvements to nothing but the asparagus drink...
As a biochemist, I have made an extensive study of all aspects of cancer, and all of the proposed cures.
As a result, I am convinced that asparagus fits in better with the latest theories about cancer. Asparagus contains a good supply of protein called histones, which are believed to be active in controlling cell growth. For that reason, I believe asparagus can be said to contain a substance that I call cell growth normalizer. That accounts for its action on cancer and in acting as a general body tonic.
In any event, regardless of theory, asparagus used as we suggest, is a harmless substance. The FDA cannot prevent you from using it and it may do you much good. It has been reported by the US National Cancer Institute, that asparagus is the highest tested food containing glutathione, which is considered one of the body's most potent anticarcinogens and antioxidants.
Please spread the news... the most unselfish act one can ever do is paying forward all the kindness one has received, even to the most undeserved
EC: The asparagus cure for lung cancer has been floating around the internet for about 3 years, according to Snopes: http://www.snopes.com/food/ingredient/asparagus.asp
Here's a discussion thread on the subject:
My wife has been taking baking soda in water for her non small cell lung cancer. She has had pain in the general area of the tumur as well as in some bone. Could this be due to the baking soda?. also she has sickness, again could this be the b.s.?
To me it makes sense that cancer is a fungus and cancer plus other serious illness are caused by shock like a sudden death of a family member which happened to my wife some years before the cancer was found.

New Baking Soda Nebulizer Lung Cancer Cure
Hi All...Just read this at the Yahoo Baking Soda Cures group and is an email concerning a successful new BS treatment that Dr Simoncini is using:
"I have some exciting news to report. We have been administering 8.4% sodium bicarbonate to our lung cancer patients by nebulizer inhalation, along with our regular intravenous treatment protocols. Currently, we have received back an all-clear PET scan on a non-small cell lung cancer case! There is no question, when comparing the baseline scan and the post treatment one, showing no residual malignancy remaining. The only thing which could account for having resolved this non-small cell lung cancer case -the one element of treatment we had added- was sodium bicarbonate by nebulizer inhalation. There can be no other explanation for this victory. The sodium bicarbonate was the element which made the difference.
Also, we are getting good response against mesothelioma, using the direct inhalation method with the 8.4% sterile vials of sodium bicarbonate. I wanted to let you know about this. Of course, now we are administering sodium bicarbonate by inhalation therapy to all cancer patients which have lung cancer or another form of malignancy with mets to the lungs.
M. C. C. - USA"
You should be able to check this out at Dr Simoncini's website at
The usefulness of the BS in solution nebulizer remedy might also happily have application for other lung remedies -- from perhaps flu and colds to pneumonia, bronchitis, emphysema etc. You could even perhaps combine H2O2 and BS in solution using the nebulizer spray. You could also perhaps use the nebulizer with iodine(in very dilute solution)or to ingest larger amounts of Magnesium in solution (thus avoiding the restrictive laxative effects in the gut). The possibilities seem endless.
This is certainly very good news

Maple Syrup and Sodium Bicarbonate:
I've been a proponent of Ted's Lemon + Sodium Bicarbonate, Hydrogen peroxide and herbals for about 4 years now and take them regularly. I'm specifically writing because I've come across another bicarb mix that is supposed to cure cancer. This is maple syrup mixed with Sodium Bicarbonate and here is how to make it:
"This treatment is a combination of pure, 100% maple syrup and baking soda and was first reported on the Cancer Tutor site. When mixed and heated together, the maple syrup and baking soda bind together. The maple syrup targets cancer cells (which consume 15 times more glucose than normal cells) and the baking soda, which is dragged into the cancer cell by the maple syrup, being very alkaline forces a rapid shift in pH killing the cell. The actual formula is to mix one part baking soda with three parts (pure, 100%) maple syrup in a small saucepan. Stir briskly and heat the mixture for 5 minutes. Take 1 teaspoon daily, is what is suggested by Cancer Tutor but one could probably do this several times a day."
I would very much like to know what Ted thinks of this remedy in terms of alkalizing and energy. I also can see no reason why Honey or Molasses cannot be substituted for maple syrup, since it's cure-effect relies purely on the combination of sugars and bicarb to kill the cancer.

My dad has stage 4 lung cancer spread to liver, and bones he had developed a large marble sized tumor on his cheek bone and much pain associated with it. I purchased sacred frankincense (essential oil) not regular frankincense and pharmaceutical grade dmso found only online 99.9% pure. I purchased dark Amber 15ml bottles with metal roll on ball online. I filled bottle half full with dmso and other half with the oil. Shook well. We applied once a day. It burns but dmso takes the frankincense directly into the tumor reverting it into a normal sell it doesn't kill it it transforms. DMSO acts as a Trojan horse for anything mixed with it. Alone it will transform cancer cells into normal working cells mixed with something it's a double punch.
1 week later tumor was gone and he has very little pain left. He then began experiencing extreme pain in the liver area and around the the ribs on his right side. He then began applying the same mixture over that area multiple times a day. He is now completely pain-free.
To soothe a burning that comes on about three minutes after application of the DMSO and Frankincense Oil, apply organic extra-virgin olive oil over the area. It will neutralize the pain from the burn caused from the DMSO penetrating the skin when the skin becomes to roll, then apply only frankincense for a few days, and then go back to the DMSO. Use as an alternate back-and-forth.
We have other internal remedies were using for the lung cancer and liver cancer such as as yet, but I have no report yet as we have not received any new scans. He was only diagnosed six weeks ago and has had one round of chemo for three days.
Panacur (Fenbendazole), among other natural treatments, did not cure my husband's lung cancer. He's now with the Lord. But it seems to work for some folks.

Want to Cut Cancer Risk? Try Munching Pistachios
Wed Dec 9, 11:49 pm ET
WEDNESDAY, Dec. 9 (HealthDay News) -- Eating pistachios every day might reduce your risk for lung cancer and other malignancies, according to a new study.
Pistachios are a good source of a type of vitamin E called gamma-tocopherol.
"It is known that vitamin E provides a degree of protection against certain forms of cancer. Higher intakes of gamma-tocopherol ... may reduce the risk of lung cancer," Ladia M. Hernandez, a senior research dietitian at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center and a doctoral candidate at Texas Women's University, said in a news release from the American Association for Cancer Research.
The study included 18 people who ate 68 grams (about 2 ounces or 117 kernels) of pistachios a day for four weeks and 18 people in a control group who did not add pistachios to their normal diet.
As the study progressed, those in the pistachio group showed significantly higher blood levels of gamma-tocopherol.
The findings were to be presented Dec. 8 in Houston at a cancer prevention conference sponsored by the American Association for Cancer Research.
"Pistachios are one of those 'good-for-you' nuts, and two ounces per day could be incorporated into dietary strategies designed to reduce the risk of lung cancer without significant changes in body mass index," Hernandez said.
"Other food sources that are a rich source of gamma-tocopherol include peanuts, pecans, walnuts, soybean and corn oils," she added.

My husband has been dealing with cancer for eight years now.We have used conventional and alternative treatments.He has lung cancer that has spread to the brain and bone. He fell about four weeks ago and has been having hullucinations ever since.The doctors checked for trauma to the head and they really don't have an answer for me. I have heard low potassium levels to bladder infection to reaction to his meds but, it did not start till the fall. Does anyone have any idea what this could be please let me know Could it be somthing nutrtional he is missing?Thank you in advance for your help

My wife is suffering from cachexia from lung cancer, I've read elsewhere that 1000mg msm, 500mg vitaminc, and 1tsp d-ribose powder will help with the lactic acid. The d-ribose is susposed to get nutrients past the lactic acid blockade. What do you think, or do you suggest a better way?
Also, what are your feelings about the cellect-budwig treatment?
Hello! I'm writing about my father. A year ago he suffered a stroke and was diagnosed with lung cancer that spread to bones and liver. He was positive for mutations so the hospital gave him Giotrif, now they changed it to Tagrisso. We also went to Hoxsey clinic in Mexico, his lung cancer shrunk from 8 cm to 1,8 cm, the mets in bones are gone, liver mets as well. He has been, a few months ago, diagnosed with mets to the brain also. We started adding frankincense oil before sleep, but otherwise we use hoxsey tonic, B17 pills (2 pills per day) from Novodalin (Hoxsey center gave us that), Yewtips capsules from Pacific Yew (also Hoxsey), lately also Artemisinin with cottage cheese and a lot of food supplements:- acidophilus probiotics,- cruciferous pills,- flavonoid pills,- 2g of vitamin C per day,- Beta guard for immune system,- once a day Curcummin and black pepper in a capsule.
We have also changed the diet according to Hoxsey.
One cancer survivor said that we should use B17 (2x2 pills), digestive enzymes (2x2 pills) and DMSO to the forearm. Is that okay or do I have to watch out for contraindications as he takes also blood thinners, diabetes pills and pain killers? Since around we started that, he started feeling dizzy and feels pain in the groin and lungs where he had pleural effusion a month ago before they changed his meds to Tagrisso. Or should we put the DMSO on his chest and head where the tumors are and the locations of pain?
I know that this may be a bit confusing but any help is much appreciated, most of all if there are any dangers to using DMSO, digestive enzymes and B17 at the same time?
Kind regards, Marko

My dad (62 years old) was diagnosed with adenocarcenoma in his lung and was in the fluid around his heart. As far as I know they haven't yet said the primary is in his lung and are still doing tests to pinpoint where it is. He has also been put on coumadin because they've found a clot in his lung and are trying to dissolve it, so we're not supposed to change his diet or give him supplements until that is out of his system. He'd had a chest x-ray in January and everything looked good, so this came out of the blue.
When he was 40 he'd had his first heart attack and had 3 the next couple of years. He had a stint put in his heart in 1994 and has been mostly fine since. A couple years ago he started having leg pain and had another stint put in his leg to help. It did for awhile but the pain came back. He thought he'd had another mild heart attack in January and went to the hospital where they did the chest x ray and said everything was fine.
He has been a smoker forever. He quits periodically, sometimes for a year or more at a time, but has always gone back to it. I'm pretty sure this time he will stop for good. He's planning on doing chemo and I don't want to tell him not to. For one he wouldn't listen to me about it and another is it would make him upset. I believe that if you believe something will work for you then it has a much better chance of working.
I've been looking up things that will help and have run accross a few that sound really good and would like some guidance since I can't find anything that addresses his heart issues as well as the cancer. I've looked into the budwig, the cellect-budwig protocol, just the bugwig protocol, and Dr. Kelley's enzyme therapy. I'm hoping to get him on a mostly raw food diet along with a lot of juicing to build up his immune system. What do you think is the best choice or is there a better one that I have overlooked? I live 1,000 miles away and am going out there this weekend when he leaves the hospital. I'll be able to fly back out in a few weeks when the clot and coumadin are both gone and can start him on a better diet. He is a very strong, smart, stubborn man. I know he can beat this. I need all the information I can to get to him and my mom so they can read it over and see how well the alternative choices turn out. Please advice me on which protocol to take or any other one that I've overlooked. I'd also love any extras (diet, supplemental, exercize, websites or books) advice you may have.
Thank you for taking the time to read and reply to this, Kelley

I just realized that I most likely have small cell lung cancer. It took me over 6 months to figure out because I attributed my muscle weakness and pain to (what looks like but isn't) Rheumatoid Arthritis which is the worst in my fingers and wrists (but also knees, feet, jaw and neck).
The borax cure magnesium had no results after several weeks. Have not gone back to it.
I have gone from being able to carry 2.5 gal water jugs in each hand to needing both arms/hands to handle a 1 gallon jug, sometimes even a glass of water. I thought the arthritis had moved into my rotator cuffs but the muscles were so weak I started searching for other answers.
I finally figured out that I have LEMS (Lambert-Eaton Myasthenia Syndrome) which is usually caused by small cell lung cancer. No surprise, I have been a smoker most of my life. While I realize I simply ought to be shot, I'm kinda fighting that option.
I "came down" with the arthritis about 8 months ago and started losing my hair at the same time. Tests were negative for RA & Lupus, and thyroid tests were within normal range. (I did have a chest x-ray 6 months ago that showed a small nodule. ) My inflammation has been constant and increasing since the onset of symptoms, as has my hair loss (top of my head is 1/2 bald now). Prior to this, I had unintended weight loss for a few years and now weigh 104 rather than my normal 125.
I was unable to pursue further medical tests because I was no longer insured, so the CT scan for my lung was never done but I figured it was just a benign COPD nodule anyway - no symptoms. Oops.
So... Add 2 2 and lung cancer appears obvious. Figured this out just a couple of days ago, despite over 6 months of symptoms & signs in my arms.
I have started serious alkalizing, and am taking the following:
- 1 T. Lemon juice w/baking soda water 2x/day
- 2000 mg sodium ascorbate in water 4x/day (twice with 1/4 tsp cayenne added)
- 1 tsp turmeric in water w/600mg bromelain crushed 1x/day
- 10,000IU D3 w/180mcg vit K daily (D3 level was 45 - not terrible, not great)
- 5,000 MSM 2-4x/day
- 500mg dandelion root 3x/day
- 1-2 cups ginger tea (1" crushed slices) daily
I would be taking NAC but ran out and I will run out of all other supplements soon, will have to depend on diet alone. I am unable to work (I am an independent artist) so income is zero.
What am I doing right or wrong - or not enough/too much? Do you think the arthritis & hair loss is related? If I have to depend on diet alone, what are my best options? I would sure like to get back to painting and earning money!

First I want to say this is the only post I am going to post here as being a cancer victim (through spouse) I had way to much information to have to read.
To make a long story not so long. I researched this site a couple years ago, instituted some therapies here. My wife had outlived her prognosis of Adenocarcinoma of the lung,...she was non smoker. Two years past first prognosis, but then she got worse.
I have college education so when i researched I read way too much, and was so overwhelmed by testimonial crap that I could not make an intelligent decision on natural medicine and could not afford natural paths. Everybody has a rememdy! Can't institute it all. So, logic and common sense dictated to me... as my wife had outlived her prognosis,.. two years,..until the cancer changed it's metabolic patterns and geared up again.
My Mom went through chemo and i got to watch her die. My wife, not to be,... yet. Her cancer grew very slowly, did not spread through venous system,.. over two years though, lymphatic involvement was extensive on that fateful day our doctor cried. Doctors stated chemo would give her three more months,... maybe? We were devasted and my in laws said I killed their daughter. Ha!
That was over a year ago, now she is three years past original, and 7 months past hospice recommedation! I broke down and sought guidance through non profit research firm which basically adopted and common sense approach to this disease. Believe it or not, it involved chemo because my in laws claimed I was sentencing her to death by not gong through it, but it was interval and not intravenous chemo which has higher efficacy and lower side affects.
Strategy: Utilize every tool in layed fashion not fragmented nor scattered. "Complimentary" our cancer consultant stated chemo might be able to be logically applied but not until we reached some basic goals. Lowered blood sugar, alkaline ph, and detox plus immune stimulants.
Diet: Atkins-like,.... using organic dairy, produce,and meats, targetting blood sugars to be below 80. This lowers blood sugars raises tri-glycerides in blood stream. Anyone here think cancer burns fat for energy, (lactic acid is the only fatty acid it burns.)
Now my alternatives became more selective now with a common sense approach, I had direction after already using various protocols,...difference now those things that support lower glucose improved fat metabolism were in and high oxygen high alkalinity were in. Next, (at the same time) we sought to exploit the respiratory preferences of cancer,...anaerobic metabolism! Now oxygen therapies were in but our cancer advisor showed us studies that proved oxygen doesn't even enter cancer cells unless their is a ph and polarity shift inside. This is done with alkaline salts. Very convincing phosflourescent and radio frequency testing to prove this also proved sodium is pumped out, enters poorly, calcium isn't pumped out, enters only when cancer reaches metabolic peaks. Bicarbonates are ok for neturalizing lactic acid and uric acid that leaks into cellular spaces, phew,...less pain,... but I had been using this baking soda for two years, and is probably why it never spread venously and she outlived her prognosis until that horrible doctors visit. So, yes baking soda ok! But wasn't the magic bullet but better than traditional medicine,...what a brain number that is that baking soda was better than modern science!
So we then used intense alkalinization using very heavy buffers that were very harsh and alkaline, very dangerous stuff if not instituted correctly. Also, DMSO- cant say enough about this, if you don't put a few drops in your supplements,...you are just plain naive, foolish, haven't read enough research yet. In the End, we layered alkaline, oxygen, blood sugar strategies all at once, immune boosted and detoxed using chlorophyll, and then went in for chemo,.....and my wife breezed through, although first two were rough, but they all got easier. (Thank you dmso and chlorophyll)
I demanded markers and current baseline pet scans right before chemo and already the markers were down and her uric acid, lactic acid were up, (indicating aptopsis was happening) her pain had already gone away.
Conclusion: My wife looks as good today as the day I married her! She is willing to send her scans and markers to anyone who doubts this story and we will discuss with anyone our situation,...after all, today she is cancer free after considering hospice and planning her will. My crying doctor was in denial until last update. You will be happy to know that Half of what we instituted can be found on Earthclinic.com,... which just proves that this stuff has anti-cancer activity. The trick is to combine therapies that have logical applications toward cancers basic processes.
If a disease loves glucose,... give it fats and triglycerides and then deprive it's glucose anyway you can. Inhibbit fermentation anyway you can, which by the way, acetate, malic acid in apple cider vinegar can do,...the trick is to dose up on the malic acid as this concentration is too low in ACV. We still used baking soda to acitivate these acids and anti oxidants in ACV.
Jeeees! Common sense peopl! Read a little then,... if a disease ferements glucose, restrict its glucsose, and inhibbits ability to ferement what glucose there is. If a disease hates oxygen,....give it oxygen but don't make that one common FATAL mistake about oxygen therapies,... for all the oxygen in the world means little if the oxygen can't enter cancer cell and can't be burned!! No Brainer there!
Thank you to Ted, we believe your protocols got my wife through first two years of her death sentence. We just needed to learn how to support them better. Once chemo was started cancers were completely unable to detoxify themselves and were unable to become resistant to the chemo like all cancers do after the first dose. Phew, the in laws stated I was killing her by delaying chemo,...now they don't have too much to say any longer,....and I got my wife back....thanks again Ted.
