Holistic Treatments for Breast Cancer

| Modified on Jun 30, 2024

If you heard the four words, “You have breast cancer,” you likely equated the statement to a life sentence. But, with as much research as is being done currently, we have learned a number of different treatment supports and options to help you cope with cancer and have a better chance for full recovery. While breast cancer does require traditional medical supervision and care, there are also a number of natural cures, including turmeric, flaxseed, calcium, acupuncture, and others, which are effective for treating cancer and its symptoms.

What Is Breast Cancer?

Breast cancer is a form of cancer that manifests in the cells of the breasts. According to Mayo Clinic, it is the most frequently diagnosed cancer in the United States second only to skin cancer. While the condition is far more common in women, men can also develop breast cancer.

Regular breast self-exams as well as doctor screenings are important for preventing breast cancer and catching the condition as early as possible. Many of the initial signs of cancer are relatively easy to detect. Common symptoms include a lump or thickening in your breast or tissue, bloody discharge from you nipple, change in the size or shape of a breast, dimpling or other changes in your skin over your breast, an inverted nipple, and redness or pitting of the skin covering your breast.

Natural Remedies for Breast Cancer

Doctor’s care is necessary to identify the stage of your cancer and to identify the most appropriate treatment approach. However, many natural options are effective for supporting traditional cancer treatments and for treating the condition on their own. Some of the best natural cures for breast cancer include turmeric, flaxseed, calcium, baking soda, and acupuncture.

1. Turmeric

Dr. Mercola purports turmeric, or rather the specific compound curcumin found in turmeric, as one of the best supplements for breast cancer. The compound has been found to inhibit the growth of tumor cells, prevent the transformation of healthy cells to cancer cells, assist your body in destroying cancerous cells, decrease inflammation, and enhance liver function. To get the full benefits, Dr. Mercola says to look for an extract that contains at least 95% curcuminoids and contains only certified organic ingredients. Drink 1 tablespoon of turmeric in a quart of water every day for the best results.

2. Flaxseed

The Cancer Cure Foundation suggests using flaxseed as an effective natural treatment for cancer. The American Cancer Society also reports that flaxseed has been show to slow the growth of cancer and to prevent its spread. For the best results, use flaxseed oil and take 1-2 tablespoons by mouth per day.

3. Calcium

Calcium is another nutrient that has been shown to aid in cancer treatment. According to the Cancer Cure Foundation, calcium reduces tumor formation and supports overall bone and tissue health. You should take at least 1,000mg per day for the biggest health benefits.

4. Baking Soda

Our own Earth Clinic readers support baking soda as an effective treatment for breast cancer. Baking soda helps alkalize your body, creating an environment in which cancer cells cannot thrive. Drink 1 to 2 tablespoons of baking soda dissolved in 8 ounces of water daily.

5. Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a commonly used treatment for mediating the symptoms of cancer. The treatment pinpoints pain centers to relieve pain and inflammation throughout your body. Cancer Research UK lists this as one of the most commonly used treatment options for cancer.

Check out Dr Eric Berg on YouTube and his video on baking soda. Should not be taken long term as it upsets the gut flora making it too alkaline. Good explanation.

Hi, after 23 years of being cancer free I now was diagnosed with Stage 1 Breast Cancer. It's not a fast growing one, and it was detected early so that's good. The usual treatment would be a Lumpectomy with Radiation afterwards. This treatment is not an option for me because I have had radiation before. I read that no cancer can survive in an alkalized body. I'm working on this since 4 days. Do you have any specific Advice for me regarding the alkalizing process quckly where I have a chance of getting rid of the cancer before having to do the Traditional Treatment which in my case would be a mastectomy and either chemotherapy or hormon Therapy afterwards.

I have one more question in this regards: how do I make sure to not get stuck in the 6.8 - 6.9 ph levels, since I read that they are dangerous to be in.

Your advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You, Tina

After listening to an interview from a doctor who had breast cancer for the second time, and was advised it would be terminal. She realised that in China it was called "rich womans disease" as only those who got it in China were rich and could afford Dairy. The only thing she could do was to cut out all dairy which she said wasn't as easy as it might seem, but checking everything in her diet was dairy free.. The tumour in her neck started shrinking, till it finally disapeared, her oncologist was astounded. If you google doctor with " breast cancer and dairy" you should be able to find her.

Hi Tina, There are people on the LDN site who use it for cancer, along with PawPaw, alkalizing, IP6, and fasting from Sunday until Wednesday morning, then eating baking soda with some form of sugar that goes directly to the cancer cells. One man's wife had stage 4 breast cancer and her doctor now talks of long term cure. He is always willing to share their protocol if you search cancer on the site, the comments will come up and you can email people directly and privately. Obviously, I have read many excellent recommendations here, also. Best wishes.

Remove the cause, and you have the cure. I came across this with regards to breast cancer, as a hormone related cancer it would be the same for prostate cancer in males. As the incidence graphs are similar. http://rense.com/general35/av.htm Here we have a general hormone disruptor in widespread use in the Western world that no one seems to be addressing. When it is, a PR machine swings into action. The general rise in Obesity, Diabetes, Heart disease could be laid at the overconsumption of this culprit as well. Remembering that Insulin is a hormone as well.

I see alkalizing, particularly by mineral baths, as the very first step in preventing cancer, but only a first step. Detoxing and immune boosting are certainly very important. But yes, alkalizing is mandatory first step as all other treatments or remedies (conventional or alternative alike) depend on this for their success.

As for the hormone problem, as I understand it, excess estrogen and insufficient testosterone is the major problem in both males & females. Estrogen mimicking environmental zenobiotics are a big problem. For men in particular, aging often decreases the utility of testosterone. Estrogen dominance is one of the causes, but other factors as well. The loss of utility of testosterone causes a buildup of "bad" dihydrotestosterone in the prostate which leads to enlargement and cancer. This problem is easily corrected w/ the herbs Stinging Nettles and Avena Sativa. About 3 yrs ago I decided to try the green oats and the results were profound as my libido shot thru the roof, which is evidence I had high dihydrotestosterone levels.

The natural occurring chemical in cruciferous veggies Diindolymethane (DIM) is effective in reducing estrogen excess in both men & women. Many male athletes and trainers use DIM regularly to boost free testosterone.

Ayurvedic Remedy for Liver Restoration

300 gms of aloe vera-washed n chopped

1/2 ltr of honey

4tbs of brandy

Beat all this well , and refrigerate if required. Have 1 tbs an hr before each meal. That would be 3 times per day, get the mix to room temp before ingesting it. This course is to be had for 10 days and then a 10 day gap should be taken. Ayurveda says that this mix is so strong that there is a tendency for it to do away with all the good bacteria in the colon as well. The 10 day gap is for the replenishment of this bacteria, which are an essential part of your gastrointestinal tract. Continue this as long as the problem persists. My mom's been using this for the last 7mths. She has stage4 breast cancer. She's been having it along with the graviola fruit whenever available and tablets whenever scarce. She also has soya milk and cod liver capsules in her diet.

Hi again, Well fate seems to be against me, It is,now a death sentence as they discovered the Cancer is all over my body and bones, not treatable. I still take the baking powder not soda with citric acid as the baking powder destroys the vitamin C. It may be too late for me, I didn't even know i had anything wrong until a week ago. But I am scared to death now I hate pain, and do not know how much to expect. Back-up seems to be rare here, I feel like I have been dumped. Hope you all get and keep well health is the best gift we have love to all. Zeeka3

It seems that it was actually my mistake. In Australia and England (it seems) we don't refer to a product called Baking Soda. We call it Bicarb Soda. I think some people outside the US are getting confused because we also have Baking Powder which is a different product, usually Wheat/Corn flour with added Mineral Salts. Bicarb Soda is definately Sodium Bicarbonate and is the correct product. Hope this clears things up. Thanks for the great website."

Perhaps hope for you is in tomography (search internet). I know of a man who had "seed tumors" all over his body after cancer surgery. He walked into a tomography place, had a brief treatment, and (his stepson tells me) walked out cancer-free with no recovery. Tomography targets only tumors--precisely.

I was diognosed with stage three breast cancer that was also in my lymph nodes in 2011. After much research I figured I probably had a better chance with healthy alternatives than big pharma.

phcurescancer is a lovely site by a gentleman who cured his own cancer using bicarbonate soda and the lump in my breast did go from 80mm across down to 70mm in the two weeks I pushed my ph into the high 7s. However this is not a good thing to do long term and bi carb not the best way to do it. Be aware that mixing bi carb with citrus acid (vit c) chemically combines to create carbon dioxide, pure poison. Good info on http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=XuFGobY4dUI.

One of the best ways is diet and drinking alkalising greens. Coral calcium is also excellent and a much better balance of essential minerals. I test my pee regularly and a ph in the 6.5-7 is good from what I understand. If you are reading 7.3 or higher then your body is probably too alkaline and is trying to get rid of excess. If for some reason I've dropped under 6.5 then I will take a quarter to a half teaspoon of bi carb which just boosts things up nicely but I rarely have to do that now.

I'm sure through diet and lifestyle changes it is possible to help the body get rid of most cancers. I had some very positive results and felt fantastic health and energy wise. Once I started working I got a bit slack and by the end of 2013 the lump in my breast had gotten large again and some lymph nodes were enlarged. So this year I started using MMS with MSM or DMSO. Cheap. Very definite results. The tumer is half the size it was in two months and the lymph nodes are getting smaller. I found I could only use very small amounts or I got pretty full on detox effects. In a couple of months I'm hoping for an all clear and I will put together a more detailed report and put it out there.

So don't panic. research. There's a huge amount of very good information out there. Keep an open mind and a healthy amount of scepticsism. It's a wonderful world and we are amazing beings so I hope all goes well.

Dear Carol,

Wonderful, positive post, thank you. I have a question regarding your statement... "Be aware that mixing bi carb with citrus acid (vit c) chemically combines to create carbon dioxide, pure poison..." I beg to differ about mixing citric acid with sodium bicarbonate. I take this form of vitamin c almost every day for years and am alive and kicking. It's called Vitamin C sodium ascorbate and is the best form of vitamin c to take in my opinion. Definitely not a poison!

Replied by Carol

Hi Edda, sorry if I was a bit dramatic. Carbon Dioxide is a poison. It's created when the body utilises oxygen as well as in other processes that happen and the body works hard at getting rid of it as quickly as possible. That's why you breath in oxygen and breath out carbon dioxide.

From what I've gathered Vit C is a general label they put on a substance they didn't understand very well At the time. it does come in various forms. I was referring to citric acid which is different from the vit c sodium ascorbate you said you were using. You just have change one molecule and it changes what happens.

When using mms you mix sodium chlorite with citric acid as an activator. It can taste yuk, especially with larger amounts. So word was out that if you mixed bicarbonate soda with it, it tasted better and was less acidic. Which it did. Now days a I try to research everything from different angles. Some times I even check out the quack sites for a good laugh. two main things happen. If the bi carb hooks up with the mms molecules it creates a much larger molecule which then can't do what you want it to do which is to take extra oxygen deeply into cells that need it. And if it combines with the citric acid molecules it becomes carbon dioxide. In the past I have occasionally squeezed lemon into a glass of bi carb which made it taste better and lemons are so good for you. High in citric acid and I won't do that again.

bicarbonate soda is a wonderful substance used in so many ways but do some research on what it actually does. It can throw the acid, alkaline balance of your stomach and lower intestines, needed for proper digestion, totally out of wack. It might provide temporary relief for indigestion or heartburn but far better to work out what is causing the problem Long term. It can cause other mineral imbalances. If you've had a few drinks which is very acid then drink a big glass of water with a spoonful of bicarb dissolved in it before bed. You will fell much better in the morning.

The last two years has been a steep learning curve for me and I'm learning more all the time. Especially not to take things for granted, including breathing. All the best.

One to two tablespoons baking soda seems like alot, maybe taper up to it? That seems like a lotta action inside a body, we do a 1/2 tsp. once a day, and when we're ill we compensate as we test acidic. We throw a half lemon's juice or a pinch of baking soda in every glass or bottle of water we drink, even throw a little lemon juice or baking soda in the dogs' water every now and then too, and have seen it spare dogs when vets failed. 1/2 tsp. when I'm in respiratory distress and test acidic gives me a quicker, profoundly stronger and longer last relief from respiratory failure than everything else I've done or tried, including major surgery, combined. We take a 750 mg. tablet of GABA when we do "a fix" though, else we run around (or go to bed) wired.

A month ago I found a lump in my breast and, before I even went to the doctor and had it checked, I decided to err on the side of caution and started the baking soda/BSM mix which I'd heard about years ago. I starting with 1 teaspoon of each and intentions of doubling the amount of baking soda after a few days. I felt fine for the few two or three days, but by the third day I had a headache, which worsened significantly on the fourth day and left me feeling as if I might have a stroke. That's went I learnt that baking soda has a LOT of sodium; that is probably what affected me so badly. As soon as I stopped taking the baking soda (never even got round to upping it to 2 teaspoons), the headache and terrible feeling went away.

If baking soda is good for cancer, taking it certainly didn't work for me.

Last week I had confirmation my lump is breast cancer. I've been doing everything I can with my diet (eating the full rainbow of veggies and fruit) to help myself, and taking herbs and spices that are supposed to help. I had a pretty good diet to begin with, largely whole foods, planet-based, with the only meat being a bit of chicken, but I think the main weakness in my diet was that the range of fruits and veggies I ate, wasn't wide enough, nor was I using a wide enough variety of spices and herbs. But breast cancer runs in my family, and I've lost two sisters to it, so it's possible (if I have the gene) that nothing would have averted me getting it. I've always tended to believe that even if you have the gene for a disease, it might not necessarily be triggered or manifest in you if you do your best to live a healthy life. I did—and have always been healthy. I've never drunk or smoked it my life, am very active year round, have never been on medication for anything, and have never had to be treated at a hospital for anything except a broken wrist five years ago. I've never owned a mobile phone, or have any wireless devices in my home as scientific data proves EMR/EMFs are dangerous to the health of all living things. But none of that helped me stave off breast cancer.

I've decided on a lumpectomy with no radiation after (which the surgeon recommended in order to be sure all the cancer was gone), because I prefer to trust in a more holistic approach and use all the foods nature provides to get me through.

I've no doubt the surgeon feels refusing radiation is a poor health choice on my part, (my family doctor certainly thinks that! ) but when people are conventionally trained in medicine, and they encounter someone who is innately holistic in their outlook, there is NEVER GOING TO BE a meeting of the minds. I'm sure both think I'm crazy and am taking a terrible risk.

My surgery is in two weeks, and they feel there's still time for me to change my mind about having radiation after. If I should receive compelling information from anyone out there who has had breast cancer and agrees with them, I would welcome hearing from you.




Hi Sam,

I also hv breast cancer, DCIS. I had a lumpectomy in Oct 2020 with great success, no cancer in lymph nodes. I've decided to opt out of radiation too. Too many cons than pros for me anyway. I rather be diligent in a "natural approach" with alkalizing first thing in the morning with warm lemon & Apple cider vinegar. Vit D, DIM, Vit C IV therapy, etc. As much as I can to keep my immune system healthy. My surgeon also didn't agree with my decision, but its wht is best for me in my opinion. Hope this helps a little. Good luck!


Hello Sam and all lovely ladies posting here on breast cancer, I hope you are all doing well. I highly recommend looking up chrisbeatcancer.com, Curing cancer with carrots by Ann Cameron and books by dr Mark Sircus. My Mum was diagnosed with breast cancer last June. What she does is carrot juice and alkalizing her body plus a bunch of supplements. Her blood tests results have been good and there has been no metastasis so far. She's had no conventional treatment at all. We are having a CT scan in March to see whether the lump in her breast has shrunk. Best of luck and courage to everyone who has to go through the (breast) cancer nightmare <3

Hi Sam.

Please look into melatonin for breast cancer, especially if you decide to use radiation as it can ameliorate some of the damage caused by radiation as well as have synergy with radiotherapy as well as with chemo.

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 metastatic 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 borderline anemic. My blood counts are better than they have EVER been in my entire life. I believe if I had been doing these things for myself BEFORE I got cancer that I would NOT have had cancer in the first place.

Breast Cancer History Breast cancer runs in my family. My aunt is fighting it now. Not to mention from using regular store bough underarm deodorant as a teen myself I use to get lumps under my arms/right in the pit area. They had to be lanced and drained at the hospital. From that point on I did alot of research and found that the aluminum they put in the deodorant clogs the glands under your arms which inturn are very close to the breast. I have not used store bought deodorant for about 15 yrs now-I only use all natural from health food store and never had a problem again.

I'ved tried several brands, but nothing seems to stop the underarm odor. Days when I know I'm going to be doing activities that will make me sweat, I'm forced to use regular deodorant (aluminum & all) to keep from offending people.

I have tried so many kinds… finally found one that works for me, and only needs to be applied every few days. Nuud. It's a European company, so shipping can take a bit of time, but it's so worth it. Didn't work at first…. Had to go through a bit of a detox phase. I used every day for a few weeks, then started every other day. I only apply once every four or five days now, even with showering. I love it. You will sweat though, aluminum blocks pores, which isn't healthy so be prepared to sweat, it just won't smell.

You can buy them at a health food store and the oil itself is great for pain and muscle strain, and for jock itch, yeast under your arms, razor burn, you can put a drop in your bath water. I swear by them. If I get stopped up, or have a headache I will put some of the oil on my forehead or breath in the vapors and my sinus open up.

If you can get the type tablets Hospitals use in Colostomy bags, those Work Best and they Work Great. The drug store tab's work OK. The side effects are min, 2 is all I've experienced. 1st is gas, after a day or 2, noise (if you can't silence it) is all that will give you away. Then, It's the GREEN you'll leave in the toilet that may have you feeling faint until you remember what's caused it. I've used Chlorophyll for years and still do. Good Luck, hope this helps someone, sometime. God Bless all those coming to this site for answers/help, know 1st hand that we need all the prayers our loved ones can get.

A safer cancer diagnostic tool is a thermogram. You hear doctors preach about how women need to get yearly mammograms etc yet the very act of medical imagery exposes you to needless radiation. It's long been known that such radiation helps to get cancer growing. Now unless you have a naturopath for a doctor, I bet you never heard of a thermogram. Well this medical imaging technique can be safely used by anyone at any age. It looks for areas of unusual heat signatures. A thermogram can detect a tumor as small as a grain of rice. This means it can detect tumors 7 to 10 years earlier than an old fashioned mammogram.

The procedure is very simple, you first get a baseline image. You sit in a temperature controlled room and let your body cool for a brief period of time then body mapping begins. Every square inch of your body is thermally mapped by computerized equipment then kept as a data ase. Next year any changes, even tiny ones, that show up can represent a possible tumor. These then can recieve additional testing and diagnosis. With the ability to detect tumors many years before being able to be imaged by any other technique.a thermogram can give you a valuable head start in cancer treatment options. This can be a life saving asset.

I am almost 61 years old, a widow with 3 sons, working, with average health issues for my age, nothing serious and nothing that Earth Clinic hasn't helped me with greatly. I take no medication other than supplements. I am writing because I feel passionately that there IS solid evidence that there is something every woman can do to drastically reduce her chances of getting breast cancer, and that is to not wear a bra at all....or to wear one NO MORE than 12 hours a day. I urge everyone to do research about this, because you have no particular reason to believe me. I have personally not worn a bra since the bra-burning 1960s. Needless to say, I have not had breast cancer, but my bra-wearing mother has. Don't listen to me; do some research and you will undoubtedly come to one book that is stunning in its conclusions. Once you understand the delicate and yet absolutely essential function of the lymphatic system (which is gravely compromised by tight clothing), you will be convinced. And believe me, after one week of going braless, I cannot believe you will ever be able to harness yourself in again. If you need a 'recipe,' I will pass on this: all-cotton camisoles or undershirts! They are so comfortable, winter and summer. They are not supportive, but they do help to preserve your modesty.

Hello Joy.....Oh yes, absolutely....such pertinent information...I recall this warning years ago and have heeded it ever since. Makes perfect sense to me. I immediately unhinge my bra whenever I return home from 5 hours in workforce and on weekends, sans bra. It is just a habit now and I don't even think about it, like washing your hands, or brushing and flossing.

What about wearing a bra when you exercise, such as using a rebounder or running? Isn't it harder on your breast not to wear a bra when doing such activities? That's the only time I wear a bra, and also I wear a 'not tight' sports cotton bra in summer when wearing light clothing.

Breast Cancer Prevention

During the fall of 2005 I was put on a series of antibiotics for a period of 4 months treating a throat and gland problem. My Dr. referred me to a Nose Throat ear specialist. Test were done and this time I was diagnosed with Mono(from a patient I treated) Again more antibiotics I got worse night fevers swelling then the knots came I was then diagnosed with Lymphoma. Yes, the antibiotics played a big part, but there were other factors. One- tight wired bras were cutting the lymph tubes where the toxins could not flow. Also wearing bras to bed and wearing under panties with elastic bands around the waste and groin area which also cut lymph tubes. Ladies, get out of the tight under garments. This is a big factor in breast cancer because the toxins stop at the breast area when the lymph tubes are squeezed tight and cannot flow and remove the toxins.

Yes Yea , I too came to the conclusion that bra's are dangerous, I remember my Mother had big heavey Boobs and the straps were done up so tight to hold them up, she developed a huge lump on her shoulder from the strap, She died from bone and breast Cancer too. also the upwards lift is quite unatural and must interfere with circulation, don't you think, as Boobs naturally drop down.

Pueraria Mirifica (also known as kwao krua) has many benefits, including: Breast firming and enlarging, better skin, anti-aging and stronger nails an hair. It grows in Northern and Northeastern Thailand, the region where this plant is grown is remarkable for its low rate of breast cancer and impressive longevity.


I decided to see what I could learn about Pueraria mirifica and it doesn't sound too good regarding breast cancer.

From the government website, National Center for Biotechnology Information: "In conclusion, in the present study long-term postpubertal treatment of Donryu rats with PM at a dose of 200 mg/kg b.w./day exerted promoting effects on mammary carcinogenesis after the initiation with DMBA. Furthermore, PM elevated cell proliferation in the mammary glands of DMBA-initiated rats, which might lead to the promotion and progression of mammary tumors to greater malignancy. In addition, it inhibited the levels of calcium in the blood, and induced inflammation, hemorrhage, and dilatation of the uterine wall in rats." 200 mg per kg of body weight is a lot, I'm sure, and these are poor, unfortunate rats, but still, I would be a bit leery of this herb for cancer and opt for more tried and true alternatives.

Which couldn't possibly be the only cause.


One of the causes is the genetics from family. Other type is excessive amount of estrogen. Check if your estrogen is running high. There are different ways to check it.

Breast Cancer: Post-Treatment Remedies

Posted by Julia (Sylva, Nc) on 02/06/2013

I had breast cancer back in 2004 and went through all the prescribed therapies, lumpectomy, chemotherapy and radiation. The area around my lump was benign and the first lymph node was clear but they scare you into doing the therapies. Anyway, I have been doing good, not taking any medications, just trying to eat right and taking herbs and vitamins and eating lots of fruits and veggies. Well, I know this is normal but it scares me. My breast that was radiated is starting to feel more and more like rubber and I'm wondering is there anything out there that might help. I've used aloe gel right off the plant, used apple cider vinegar, castor oil, comfey salve and olive oil after showering but it seems to be getting worse. I do not want to go back through the drill with the doctors as I want to live a quality life and that involves no drugs which I do not trust, if you can help me in anyway please do, I still have my mammograms yearly as well as a yearly physical. Thank you very much.

Julia: I am no expert on radiation therapy side effects, but I do know that it can be as big a problem as the disease in which it's supposed to treat.

It simply seems wise to do some radiation and bad energy removal therapies found right here on E.C. which would include Magnet Therapy, Mineralization, and Alkalization. Read all the post in this category and begin these remedies.

Please update us on your protocols and progress.

Hi, I have heard that mammograms are not always good and thermograms are better. Also, I have heard that oxygen therapy is good like using food grade hyrdrogen peroxide therapy. There is a book that tells about it... It's called the one minute cure or something like that and tells you how to dilute the peroxide and how to take it. You build it up slowly each day by how much you take but another thing is that sugar feeds on cancer and Doug Kaufmann from know the cause show says fungus mimics cancer and natural anti- fungals like oregano oil topically and interanally can help.. he also has the phase 1 diet which is very similar to the paleo diet to help as well.

Please research hydrogen peroxide therapy (h2o2) before using internally (or on the body). Buy ONLY 35% food grade and dilute to 3%. A good source for info is: www.cancertutor.com

Thanks for all your suggestions, have been using organic coconut oil on my breast and it does seem to soften it up. I just pray I can continue to stay away from the doctors and medications that have side effects.

I use H202 therapy on a permanent basis and I swear by it. It has helped me so much! I cannot think of life without it. Do NOT drink the 3% H202 normally bought at a pharmacy/drug store as it will not be pure and likely have contaniments in it. If drinking it it is essential to follow the correct protocol suggested by David Williams. You MUST purchase 35%FOOD GRADE H202 ONLY and use it according to THE specific protocol. NO OTHER WAY WILL DO. H202 35%FG can also be used for mutiple purposes if diluted down appropriately.

I have breast cancer and am presently taking 9 oz. Of Essiac Tea daily. I was diagnosed 5 yrs. ago and this has kept my cancer from spreading. However, I have a tumor the size of a golfball just under my right nipple. It is hard, sometimes painful and itchy and there is a continuous bloody secretion. I plan to try the H2O2 protocol together with Vitalzym (enzymes) and magnesium as I read in the CancerTutor. I want to know if I can use Alkaline Ionized Water instead of Distilled Water when I take the drops of H2O2. Can I also combine this with 1/4 tsp. of baking soda? Also, what can I apply on the tumor to help it shrink and dry up? Would be extremely grateful for any advice. Emilie

This is for Emillie from the phillipines and everyone else. I have heard that hemp oil from cannabis plants can be used topically and internally to cure a number of ailments including cancer. "Run from the cure a Rick Simpson story" is a documentary by Rick Simpson who claims to have cured his own skin cancer as well as a number of cancers and disorders with hemp oil. I came across it doing research for my fathers leukemia... Very interesting stuff. I encourage anyone to do there own research on this one, knowledge is power. Good luck and many blessings!

To the woman Emilie from the philippines who has breast cancer and doesn't want to get destroyed by the medical industry, try black salve to help draw the growth out of your breast. I heard a lot of good things about it for all types of cancer... black salve comes from the plant called bloodroot... It's just a pity I hadn't discovered this about black salve before my mother was told she had breast cancer! May I add that she had her first mammogram 8 months prior to being told she had breast cancer and that after that first mammogram she was cleared, so that just copper fastened my belief that they are giving us cancer in as many ways as they can... To all those medical doctors who support these methods hang your heads in shame!!!!!

To Emilie from Quezon City, Philippines. Hello Emilie, I'm sorry to hear about the cancer, I hope you are better. God healed my daughter of breast cancer over 16 years ago after taking Essiac, surgery, minimal chemo, and prayer. Sometimes all the doctors can do and all we can do is not enough, but we can Pray and trust God to heal us, and if we ask sincerely in Jesus name, I believe He will do it.

One of the best ways I know to prevent and fight cancer (and other diseases) is to keep your blood PH alkaline, instead of acidic. Disease hardly grows in alkaline blood.

I used baking soda (in water) for this until I learned that baking soda contains aluminum. We don't need heavy metals in our body, so I stopped the soda & started drinking Apple cider vinegar, (or fresh lemon juice, which are both alkaline) in water instead.

I suggest using at least 2 or 3 fresh lemons daily, (or equivalent ACV), squeezed in water with maybe a little stevia (absolutely no sugar, as cancer feeds on sugar)

About Hydrogen peroxide, I have used the 35% food grade (Diluted) HP in the nebulizer for colds etc. and on infected wounds with success but I have not taken it internally, however I believe I cured a skin cancer with Hydrogen peroxide.

For about 5 years A coal black spot had grown on my hand, to about the size of my thumbnail. I began to worry and prayed. I believe God told me it was cancer and that I should put undiluted 35% hydrogen peroxide on it. I did, very carefully keeping the HP on the growth. A bit got of the skin around the growth & turned white, but no problem. The white color soon went away.

The black growth puffed up like a water blister, which I left untouched for a couple days until the blister went down. I then applied the hydrogen peroxide a second time. and let the blister go down again, at which time I noticed the edges of the black growth had begun to curl up something like the edges of a crispy fried egg.

I very carefully started gently pulling the edges of the growth loose, prepared to stop if I saw any bleeding. There was no bleeding. I pulled every bit the growth off easily with no pain or bleeding, leaving only brand new baby pink skin beneath. My normal skin color soon returned. That was at least 5 or 6 years ago and the growth has never returned. GrannyJo.

Baking Soda absolutely does not contain aluminum! Baking Powder does. Don't confuse people who are trying to find help for their condition. There's enough miss information out there. It only causes more hopeless stress.

my name is ruth,I used flax seed to cure my tumors . I would grind them in my coffee grinder . Then I would use about 2tsp a day and sprinkle them over my salad . I found it easier to eat them that way . I also would make flaxseed bread I would use about a 1/2 cup in my loaf of bread . It is very important to grind the flaxseed up to get the benfit of the seeds. Other wise the seeds will just pass right threw you . I did this for about a year and when I went back and had my ultra sound they were gone . I also had a tumor in my breast . I was benine but that also disappeared as well . I never tryed the BSM because I never heard about it working on tumors until now. I end up have a historectomy because my uterus fell . but I still take it so I don't get any tumors in my breast

Hello, my mom has been doing Gerson Therapy (cofee enemas, 13 juices a day, no salt, high potassium, high in potato diet) for almost a year. Her breast cancer has grown larger and hard and she developed nodules on her thyroid. We have contacted the Gerson clinic in California and they are suggesting for her to go for surgery to remove the tumor in her breast and her thyroid because her body is not battling it. They are trying to break all ties with us because the therapy didn't work. We are at a loss of words because the therapy has a large success rate. We believe it has to do with her thyroid and her high estrogen. Would you be able to give any advice? We do not know what to do because we know that surgery spreads the cancer. We live in Cleveland, OH. It is urgent. She is still doing the Gerson Therapy.

Natalia: try to find time to read E.C. chapter on Cancer here: https://www.earthclinic.com/cures/cancer.html. There is probably too much to digest in a few minutes but you can take notes (copy & paste) any or all remedies that are easy and can begin right away. Don't be afraid of taking too much nutritional supplements as there are very few contraindications or problems in that area; just fallow labels recommended doses. As for advanced nutrition that could be a life-saver, I would highly recommend cellfood or cellpower drops.

Keep us updated as to your progress.

Her cancer got worse because the diet is not starving or reversing the cancer. Mercola.com is a good source and my favorite book Beating Cancer with Nutrition by Patrick Quillin. And a quick possible source for breast health and cancer cure in Europharmausa.com, Terry Naturally's CuraMed-Breast (for healthy breast cells). And of course, a no/low sugar, low glycemic diet. Too many potatoes and not enough whole food as chpt 13 in P. Quillin's book amazingly explains. And this site on breast calcifications. Parasites are also an issue, I love drclarkstore.com and mountainmeadowherbs.com. Going chemical free in body products and home is a major issue and plenty of pure water, along with a dairy-free, sugar-free, gluten-free, vegetable oil-free (except EVOlive Oil, and for cooking only, Coconut or MCT Oil and Avocado Oil). Also, increase Omega-3 animal source fish in diet and much less Omega-6 and less salt in diet. Breast Cancer exercise videos on youtube and wherever to stretch, weight, aroebic, and lymph drainage (rebounder). All of this is a good start in helping stave off and reverse cancer.

What is 1 drop of DSM in the food grade hydrogen peroxide post?

EC: People think it's DMSO.


DMSO is a solvent that will carry anything that it touches and anything put into it into the body. Be very careful.. ex. no nail polish on etc.

H2O2 is very caustic and should only be taken internally at a .3% Food Grade strength.

Get the H2O2 to 3% using distilled water and then dilute it X10 again before sending it into the body.
