Molasses, Aloe Vera and Beets for Cysts
Posted by Julissa (New york , New york) on 07/23/2007

Molasses in spanish is MELASA. For years I have heard my dominican family member say that a mixture of molasses, aloe vera and BEETS will remove any cysts from women breast and ovaries. I just found out i have two cysts. According to my dominican aunts i must take the this mixture for 40 days. I will post my results. I have true faith in natural resources.

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.

over a year I was diagnosed with DCIS which is stage 0 breast cancer, non-invasive or pre-cancerous. The surgeons of course suggest masectomy. After studying internet, library, bookstore and disecting every word on pathology report I am convinced of diet change. i pretty much stopped drinking red wine (so much for red wine being good for you) I'm slim already but since going organic on meat, eggs, milk and taking Vitamins b, c, d,e, germanium, magnesium, beta-carotene, coq10, turmeric, DIM, liquid fish oil, ground flax seed, progesterone cream, I have in the past year lost my little stomach, I go to the toilet regularly which I never ever did sometimes more than once, my hair is thicker, my skin on my face is tighter, the stiffness I get in my joints at the end of the night is gone, I have stamina the entire day being able to move about without tiring and even not getting dizzy in the summer heat. I get lots of comments about my skin color looking good and it's all true. I can't pin point which supplement is doing what. I always used olive oil and love my green vegetables but obviously that wasn't enough to keep cancer from creeping in. I also use red palm oil (lots of tocotrienols and vitamin A) coconut oil too, I've drunk plenty of apple cider vinegar, it's like a shot of alcohol for me haha. I did have a urinary infection recently and decided to go the natural path using mannose-d. It seemed to work. I even found oil-pulling on your website. It really does make morning mouth go away. I'm a born again nutritionist. I want to spread the word to everyone. I've become obsessed with hydrogenated oil too. My boy is having a hard time getting snacks from me when I have to check every ingredient. Unfortunately for me, I will not go back to check on DCIS which by the way is 15% chance in 10 yrs of becoming invasive and 1.5% chance of spreading. Oh also my bosums are softer too. They were always lumpy my entire life. I've taken other things through the year like cesium, kefir, noni juice and I just bought aloe vera juice and grapefruit seed extract. Anything that could be good for you I do it. Ginger in hot water is great. I'm almost 48 and am feeling younger every month. I practically feel like a teenager again. If I do go off my routine like eating snacks or drinking a little wine I will get puffy faced in the morning or have a funny taste in my mouth. I don't think many women are as foolish or wise as I am in studying big time on this subject. The more I read the more I was exposed to and thanks to your website I have the oil-pulling to thank you for. This site is great for information. Thanks a lot

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.

in response to your recent post here on EC, I would advise you that this is what this wonderful site is about, CHOICE, Many people here have been through the convential medical fields and have not found satisfaction and wish to do something for themselves, whether good or bad and this site helps and is read by many many people who have had excellent results by trying their own natural treatments, maybe because you use the NHS you are conditioned not to think for yourself, so please don't knock anyone who uses alternative treatments.

Magnesium Chloride
Posted by Art (California ) on 09/12/2017 2161 posts

Magnesium chloride (MC) has many potential health benefits and in the link to the full study below it is suggested that breast cancer might be one.

In the study they compared the effects of MC with cisplatin. The cisplatin was more effective and comes with side effects and can only be given for so long, whereas MC can be taken indefinitely and side effects are more likely to be other health benefits. Being replete with MC may be a safe and effective preventative or it may be a great addition to a breast cancer treatment strategy. Definitely worth the read and consideration.

Here is a link to the full study:

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.

Lugol's Iodine
Posted by Wydo (Ca) on 06/13/2016

In the States we can buy hot cold packs that are made up of pea sizes gel beads. There is one here that comes with a belt with a pocket that you can Velcro to your body so the heat goes to the spot you want it to be. The gel peas make it so that the pack shapes to your body. Heat will help drive the lugol's to a greater depth. Heat also kills cancer cells. So check your Boots for a heat pack. DMSO also helps to move the iodine into you. DMSO will also break through cancer cells and carry the iodine in.

Cut out all sugar and junk food. Cut down on carbohydrates like crisps. Sugar will feed your cancer because cancer cells require 8 times as much glucose as your normal cells need so starve it.

Look into Ted's alkaline drinks here in EC and also take L-lysine up to 5 grams per day spread out.

Protect your liver with silymarin and alpha lipoic acid.

If you plan to do chemo therapy and/or radiation therapy get vitamin C powder and start taking it throughout the day in mega doses to protect yourself from the damage it does.

Keep asking your questions here and keep learning how to stop and reverse the cancer. Treat your body and not just the cancer.

Flax Seeds: Promising Remedy!
Posted by Ruth (Ionia, Michigan) on 03/09/2008

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

A friend was diagnosed with breast lump that was metastasizing. The Prayer Warriors have been praying for her. God has provided so many ways for us to get our healing, so I suggested to her to add to the prayer, a few drops of Clove Oil mixed in Olive Oil. Our olive oil bottle holds about ¼ cup of oil. I told her to anoint the breast area each day, She said she missed some days . However, two months after using this mix and lots of people praying for her, her doctor reported that the lump has decreased in size. The doctor was supposed to be scheduling surgery if necessary, but did not. he just told her to keep on doing what she's doing.

Here is a study about Cloves Tumors and Cancer


Yes, there are so many ways to get your healing. I was healed of a lump a some years ago after going on an all vegetable fast for seven days. Take your choice.

Breast Cancer and Deodorant
Posted by Erin (Fremont , Mi) on 01/15/2008

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. Just wanted to let you ladies and men too know to STOP USING REGULAR STORE BOUGHT DEODORANT ONLY USE NATURAL. Thank you have a wonderful week all

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

A comment on garlic and turmeric:

This is not commonly known in the west, but here, in the middle east, we have the MALE garlic (that comes mostly from Yemen), is quite small and has only 1 bud, in comparison to the normal looking garlic (which has many buds together and is the female common variety). The medicinal properties of the male garlic is said to be approximately 1000 times more potent than the female common variety. In addition, contrast to the male garlic, the FEMALE Turmeric root (has a much stronger smell and colour, and is also smaller looking than the male), is also believed to be the 'medicinal' and more potent variety of turmeric. Good luck!

Gerson Therapy
Posted by Natalia (North Royalton, Oh) on 01/12/2013

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.

Posted by Gary (Ga.) on 08/08/2015

My Wife/best friend/most important/everything has just been diagnosed with Breast Cancer, that's why I'm on this site. This may or may not help those looking to stop using store brand Deodorant. In nature meat eaters/Predators smell one way while Pray/vegetarians have no or a very slight smell. Chlorophyll tablets may do for you what it's done a great job for me. 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.

Blackstrap Molasses, Apple Cider Vinegar
Posted by Janet (Hotsprings, AR) on 07/04/2006

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.

I had a bloody discharge from my breast. I healed it by painting lugol's iodine on it daily with a paintbrush, at least twice daily, alkalinizing my diet, consuming iodine rich foods, cutting out all sugar, caffeine and almost all protein. I ate mostly leafy greens, raw, and ate only the foods that gave me energy. I eliminated anything that made me feel tired. I have been discharge free for about 5 years now.

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!

Dr Derry from Vicotria on Vancouver Island has a book out about Breast Cancer and his research shows that taking 1 to 2 drops of iodine a day in a glass of water can help to prevent breast cancer. His book is very informative and gives a scientific reason why it works. I have been using Iodine this way for 6 years. I also use it on moles, tags and other skin conitions and it helps to make them small again. I have used it for sore throats too and it works wonderfully. Just use it sparingly as it can be toxic with too much use.

It was making me crazy, then I came here and read about everyone using BS with great results and IT IS TRUE! After my shower, I pat some in each armpit (I'm pretty liberal). And I have absolutley no underarm odor. Even in my wool sweaters which can really trap the smell...So, I put BS in a pretty bowl in the bathroom and use that. IT WORKS!

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.

Lugol's Iodine
Posted by Wydo (Ca) on 06/19/2016

Okay here is my recipe for topical Lugol's iodine.

Use a clean glass dropper bottle. Put 10 dropper fulls of 5% Lugol's iodine into the bottle. Add a few grains of vitamin C powder until the iodine goes clear. Then add 20 dropper fulls of aloe vera to the mix. Add a dash of zinc chloride to the mix and put the cap on loosely and swirl until it dissolves. You will feel it heat up. Lastly add twice the amount DMSO to what you have. Let it sit for a few minutes.

This does not make very much but you have to use it up or the mix will separate and turn amber again so you will need to use it up.

When you apply to the skin you will not need very much of this on a spot. Just a few drops will do. If this still burns add more aloe vera and less zinc.

I worked this recipe out from something that Ted wrote. So thanks to him I have it.

I hope this helps.

A young girl is born. She is a difficult child. Fussy eater, poor sleep pattern, lots of colds. She loves chicken and craves chocolate. She has trouble with her periods from almost the onset of menstruation. They are irregular and painful and she suffers PMT. Her doctor puts her on the oral contraceptive to suppress ovulation and this seems to quieten things down. Eventually she comes off the pill to start a family. Her periods take 6 months to resume and they are worse than ever. She has trouble conceiving because the pill has depleted her zinc levels. She is low in progesterone and loses a few pregnancies at multiples of 4 weeks (4,8,12,16). She eventually gets pregnant but her copper accumulates and she develops postnatal depression. Her baby is zinc deficient and probably has excess copper. She tries for another baby but this time she can't because she's developed endometriosis. Answer: the oral contraceptive. She starts to gain weight, starts to get depressed, then her skin changes. Her face develops a reddish tinge. Then she develops anxiety symptoms. She is told this is anxiety/panic disorder causing her depression and is put onto antidepressants, but these don't help her tiredness. Then she finds out that she's iron deficient, but she can't raise her iron levels with supplements. Then she's told she's got an under active thyroid and needs thyroid replacement. Still no real improvement in energy. After a few years of this purgatory of health, she goes off the pill and develops heavy periods. She finds out that now she also has fibroids and consents to hysterectomy. Then she discovers that her Estrogen levels are low. Then the punch line. "You don't have uterus, therefore you don't need progesterone". She starts Estrogen only HRT. Despite complaining of breast tenderness, she is told to continue. One day one of the painful lumps in her breast is brought to her doctor's attention. She has a mammogram, then a biopsy. The pathology shows breast cancer. She has a lumpectomy with axillary node clearance. Her tumour is Estrogen receptor positive. So then it starts. Chemo then tamoxifen. Five years later she gets a terrible pain in the back. She has spinal metastases. More chemo. Then liver secondaries. Sorry, not much more medicine can do, we've really done our best. We've followed the book; every single health recommendation. Oh, and by the way, don't go near those natural therapists. They have no idea of how to help you. End of story. This case represents the full house of Xenoestrogens symptoms, and unfortunately many of the patients with breast cancer have some version of this story.

Do you think that the medical professional would accept any blame for these events?

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.

Posted by Gavin (Northland) on 12/24/2014

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.

Essiac Tea
Posted by Emilie (Quezon City, Philippines) on 07/26/2010

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

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!

Baking Soda
Posted by Sam (Vancouver, Canada) on 11/10/2020

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.

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. Here is a link to multiple studies showing the benefit of melatonin in breast cancer :


Good luck to you on your journey!

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.

Breast Cancer and Deodorant
Posted by Sherri (Dallas, Tx) on 05/19/2008

I use Tea Tree Oil Deodrant, Tea Tree Oil toothpaste, Shampoo, Body Lotion, mouthwash. etc. It takes all odors away, is an essential oil. These products are awesome!!! 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. The toothpaste is great for halitosis, and helps keep all tartar and tooth decay away!!

Juice from a fresh lemon works wonderfully as a deodorant as well.

I'm so sick of hearing about bras and breast cancer. I hardly ever wore a bra for 20 years, and I got diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer anyway. At age 39!

Alkaline pH

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.

Lugol's Iodine
Posted by Lizzy (NC) on 10/04/2021

You add several drops of the iodine in water and drink it 2-3times a day. Also breast cancer is usually high estrogen, try progesterone cream.

Lugol's Iodine

Paint the iodine on. You don't need to bandage it on. Painting it on will allow skin to absorb. Take modified citrus pectin.

” Modified Citrus Pectin (MCP), a modified polysaccharide derived from citrus fruit peel, has shown antimetastatic properties in many cancers, including breast cancer. MCP is thought to reduce metastatic potential by inhibiting galectin-3 which may block the “loss of anchorage” phase of metastasis (anoikis”

NO sugars or carbs. Eat clean!

Iodine really helps externally and internally. Get some Lugols iodine and do two drops in water and take other companion supplements.

I did not have cancer but seriously painful lumpy breasts. I went to several doctors and they didn't have a clue except dole out pain meds. Found out hypothyroid later. Painted iodine on, got thyroid meds, problem gone. Check your thyroid many doctors will ignore you if in range. Stop the Thyroid madness has symptoms and tests. Do not get one test done, get another.

Currently breast thermography is not covered by medical insurance. Prices may range from $100 to $200 out of pocket.

I nearly cringed reading your well written message. I started this journey long ago myself. Irregular periods, put on the pill, still irregular bleeding, then a hysterectomy leading to severe menopausal symptoms. Then I met a doctor, who specializes in women's health who told me about Xeno hormones. My whole life changed after following his advice, which was get rid of all products containing fake hormones! No more symptoms, no more discomfort. My own gynecologist had never even heard of a Xeno hormones. Every doctor should know. I bet I wouldn't have needed a hysterectomy if I had met Dr. Eckhart earlier.

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.

Breast Cancer: Post-Treatment Remedies
Posted by Jackie (Kiev, Ukraine) on 01/18/2015

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.

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.

Sea Vegetables
Posted by Frank (Leicester, UK) on 01/13/2013

Sea greens contain high levels of salvestrols which are natural anticancer agents. Salvestrols have been used to successfully treat breast cancer even if its ER ve or ER -ve.

The ancient Egyptians knew about the powerful anticancer effects of seaweed and the oldest recorded cancer remedy is recorded on a papyrus manuscript.

Baking Soda
Posted by Zeeka3 (Cairns, Qld Australia) on 08/01/2009

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

Baking Soda
Posted by cclark (Oklahoma City, OK) on 12/24/2020

You might check out Panacur-C which is actually a medication for dog parasites. Also search for Joe Tippins, someone who found that this product helped with his cancer. Also look at this web site: www.cancertreamentsresearch.com which has a wealth of information.. I had 10 Vitamin C IV treatments that greatly helped, as well. Good luck!

Baking Soda
Posted by Sue (Asheville, NC) on 04/28/2019

It's one teaspoon of baking soda to one cup of water to drink one half hour before your meals. One tablespoon per cup of water would be way too dangerous, especially for older people.
