If you read internet blogs, you will find claims that everything under the sun treats cancer (and everything causes cancer).
Knowing many friends and relatives with different types of cancers, I want to be able to help with alternatives to chemo and radiation. Even if they choose to go with chemo and radiation, and you certainly can't blame them when they're fighting for their lives, perhaps there are some alternative therapies that help the process.
Of course, there are some legitimate alternative treatments out there. Please reply with the very best alternative treatments you know of, especially if you've witnessed the treatment's success for yourself.
There have to be some treatments that, when applied together, do much better than a singular treatment. There are also different cancers that may be better treated with one type of treatment versus another.
I've listed some treatments I've heard about:
Essiac tea, Budwig Protocol, Hydrogen Peroxide, Antioxidants, Mega doses of Vitamin C, detoxing, Omega 3 and other Omegas, Ozone therapy, group prayer, energy healing, Acupuncture, Tesla Coil, hot springs bathing, sulphur springs bathing, oil pulling, hyperbaric chamber, Coconut Oil, Coenzyme Q-10, Ubiquinone.
Please share your thoughts on promising individual treatments and combinations.

I received this link from a relative. Some seems unclear to For example. Ted says no potassium gluconate, yet says it blocks cancer glycosis. I would like to have the protocol listed by supplement, amt to be taken and when including source and cost, as well as things to avoid. I was given 6 mo. - 1 year as of Jan 1 this year. Have not done chemo, radiation or surgery. What do you think of DIM? Thank you for your help.
The Great Cancer Hoax, Part II, the cure the FDA tried their best to shut down... From the Dr. Mercola website. A video, only available to watch until 24 September.
Excellent study on curing cancer... Endorsed by Dr. Mercola
I am looking for a clinic that uses dmso to treat my condition. please advise.
Can Ted tell me about ACV, B. Soda, & honey mixture and is this ok for cancer.. ?? I thought I read that the B. Soda gobbles up the cancer as the cancer Thank you go after the honey and a blast of B soda will kill the cancer cell...??
Just found this article and thought others concerned about cancer treatments might find it helpful:
Reasons for Cancer and Auto-Immune Diseases
Whilst on the internet I have discovered a very good article by Mathias Rath. His cellular/nutritive approach to cancer and auto-immune diseases in general is very different to the standard conventional drugs medicine propaganda. The explanations he proposes are simply explained at the cellular level with many informative diagrams. Here is the link to the article (pdf):
Cancer as a metabolic disease: A commentary
I have recently lost a few close friends and family members to cancer. As such I found the following pdf to be of some help in understanding some of the 'back-office' cell interactions as to how cancer gets its foothold. It is mostly in keeping with the cancer philosophies of EC. It may also help some of your 'posters' in getting a better handle on this terrible condition. I have also added a diagrammatic link to cell metabolism which I'm sure your readers will find as mind boggling as I did!
EC: Thank you, Shaun! Looks very interesting and that diagram is amazing.
To all: the above pdf is a 54 page document!
In my years of practice as an N.D. I came to a conclusion as to what cancer is. I believe that understanding what cancer is will facilitate the right treatments.
Cancer is a normal process and not a malfunction.
It is a one, a singular disease that takes place in the body in order to save the body from death.
I know it sounds like a contradiction since cancer leads to death, but this is because we don't see the whole picture.
Cancer cells are produced by the immune system in locations of the body where normal cells are unable to survive.
Some times the conditions for survival for normal cells in a specific location of the body become Intolerable up to a point when the normal cells cannot live there any more.
What leads to this worsening of conditions? There are mainly three reasons:
1) A trauma to the body that leads to a long standing lack of blood/lymph/nerve supply to a specific location.
2) A chronic accumulation of toxins in the body that accumulate in a specific location.
3) A continuous irritation from external or internal source.
At the beginning the immune system creates an inflammatory process in the specific location, aimed at eliminating the accumulated toxins. It may clear the area which will go back to function normally. It can also remain inflamed at that location but it will remain stable. The accumulation of toxins may increase and as a result, the inflammation can also get worse.
As the inflammation gets worse, more and more cells are dying in that location, blood supply is restricted, the oxygen level is going down and the acidity is going up from the breakdown of proteins.
These conditions augment the cells death and create a vicious circle of dying cells and worsening conditions.
The described set of events may lead to the complete destruction (necrosis) of the organ where it take place in, and then to a quick death.
The solution made by the body is to manufacture different type of cells that can flourish in such conditions.
These special cells will take the place of the normal cells until the conditions are back to normal and then they should die, when normal cells can live there again. Or if the conditions do not improve, extend the life of the organ and that person.
What type of cells can live in such conditions?
They need to be able to live in low oxygen low blood supply and in high acidic conditions. They also should be able to replenish the blood supply to this location. They should also keep on multiplying so if some die due to the tough conditions, enough of them will survive.
When we examine cancer cells we can see that they survive and more active (malignant) the more these conditions exist:
1) cancer cells can live in conditions where oxygen is very low by not using the Krebs cycle for getting their energy (as normal cells do) and using a process called Glycolysis which does not require oxygen.
2) Cancer cells can survive in a much more acidic conditions then normal cells.
3) Since they do not need so much oxygen and can live in acidic conditions, they can live in a low blood supply level.
4) Cancer cells also produce constantly new blood veins to improve blood supply to that location.
5) Cancer cells can consume the free amino acids and other nutrient from the breaking down of cells around them.
6) Cancer cells multiply constantly so even if some are destroyed due to these conditions, others will quickly replace them.
As a result of these characteristics, cancer cells can replace normal cells in a specific location and by doing so, inhibiting the quick destruction (necrosis) of an organ.
As a rule, cancer always starts in inflamed location.
When the process of inflammation is increased very slowly the end result will be a local necrosis like we see in arthritis or emphysema which they are a localized, partial destruction of an organ. If the inflammation is more aggressive the result is cancer.
Cancer can be eliminated if we eliminate the accumulation of toxins to the area and stop the inflammatory process.
If it can not be done then at least the cancer gave us several more years to live.
An operation to remove a tumor will be effective if the source of the cancer is localized, if it is a systemic accumulation of toxins or irritation then the cancer will reappear in the same or a different location.

Word to the wise suggestion: view Mr. G. Edward Griffin's "A World Without Cancer" on Google video or read his book by the same name.
EC: Topic is about Vitamin B17 for cancer...
A friend of mine who was a cancer patient told me his favorite cancer preventative is green tea with tumeric and a pinch of black pepper. He takes one cup a day..I also take this not too tasty concoction. Over time I have gotten used to the taste and somehow, I kind of like the flavor of it now. My body seems to cherish it: when I am travelling I get the urge to make some. Apparently, the combination of the 3 ingredients creates a very powerful synergy.
hope this helps
Cancer The Shocking Truth -- Check this out http://www.scribd.com/doc/92958/Some-Cancer-Facts
1. Why are twice as many Americans dying from cancer today (560,000) than there were in 1962 (278,000)?
2. Why are we still being prescribed surgery, chemotherapy and radiation treatment after nearly 5 decades of failure?
3. Why the systematic suppression of all natural or inexpensive alternative cancer treatments?
4. Why does the Federal Drug Administration, (FDA) National Cancer Institute, (NCI) American Cancer Society, (ACS) and American Medical Association (AMA) never properly investigate, but instead suppress, the most promising alternative treatments?
5. With over a trillion dollars poured into research and treatment of cancer in the last forty years, why does the cancer establishment never change it's course of only investigating man-made patentable treatments?
6. Why is chemotherapy, a highly toxic, carcinogenic and immune system wrecking chemical, still being given to at least 700,000 American cancer patients a year?
7. Why do Americans have to leave their country to try many promising alternative cancer treatments?
8. Why are we allowing the FDA, an agency with an unbroken history of rampant corruption and incompetence, to dictate to us what medical options we are permitted to take? Why are they always patented, pharmaceutical companies products?
The 5-year survival figures, not to be confused with the successful treatment of the disease, for the major cancers using Conventional Cancer Treatments
stomach - 5 percent
trachea, bronchus and lung -5 percent
breast -50 percent
oesophagus -5 percentlarge
intestine - 22 percent
pancreas - 4 percent
liver - 2 percent.1
You'll never hear of a natural cure in mainstream medicine, for the simple fact that natural cures are not recognized by the FDA because only synthesized compounds can be considered drugs and therefore be patented. (as of the 50's). Unless a pharmasutical company can figure out what it is in apricot seeds that may help in fighting cancer, and artificially reproduce it in a lab. Which they wouldn't do, Because most scientists, and researchers no longer have the ability to think "outside the box". For fear of being ridiculed by thier peers, and the losing thier grants, and effectively destroying their careers by not falling in line with conventional wisdom. or at least here in the good ol USA. Which in our arrogance we believe is the only place in the world that matters, when it comes to advancing the human race.
For instance. British researchers have studied grape juice and have concluded that it does have an effect on intestinal cancers, colon cancer, melanomas, and even breast cancer. In that it significantly reduces tumor size and in many cases puts the cancers into total remission.
But good luck finding a doctor in this country who even knows about the research. Let alone endorse it.
Truth about medical research, is that medicine is a business. They make money off of treating disease, not curing it. If we cured it, then that would be the end of the money train. It sounds incidious but its true.
Cancer Patients should not take any kinds of meat as Cancer will absorb nutrients from the meat. Meat will accelerate the growth of Cancer cells. Fruits,vegetables and herbs are the best as these foods helps to detox the body.
Many kinds of herbs, fruits and vege are very effective in fighting Cancer. These foods can detox the body, make the body alkaline and boost the immune system to fight Cancer effectively. A strong immune system is the key to curing Cancer as a strong, healthy immune system can recognise and kill Cancer cells effectively. This is the best option for Cancer patients as Chemo and Radition are very harmful to human body and cutting away of Cancer cells will only cause the cancerous cells to become haywired and spread at a faster rate to other parts of the body.

Why Surgery,Chemotherapy And Radiation Is Harmful For Cancer Patients?
Most doctors agreed that the best way to fight Cancer is to first remove the Cancerous parts by surgery, then use radiation therapy to eliminate the remaining Cancer cells in case they transfer and recur. However,surgery will cause damage to the cells and radiation therapy also has a severe side effects to the human body.In particular radiation will make the activated oxygen super active and thus filled the body with free radicals.This creates a heavy burden to the patients already weakened by Cancer.
Radiation can kill cancer cells and also create new ones. Like chemotherapy, it seriously weakens the immune system, thereby subjecting the patient to the risk of other diseases, for example pneumonia.
Danger of Chemo to Cancer Patients
According to the Chinese Medicine, when spleen/stomach qi is damaged or in decline, a patient's life and health are in danger. Chemotherapy drugs often will damage the lining of the stomach and intestines, leading to symptoms of nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, and a burning sensation. The toxins produced by cancer cells will often weaken the spleen/stomach qi as well. Chinese adjunctive cancer therapy includes supporting the spleen/stomach qi and its function of digestion and assimilation.
Chemotherapy injects highly toxic substances and can actually cause cancer, e.g., cyclophosphamide, which is used to treat bladder cancer. Those who are administrating the injections are very careful not to get any on their own skin because it will burn, yet they inject it into your veins.
Studies have shown that Chemotherapy often kills both cancerous and good cells at the same times,causing permanent damage to Vital organs and weakening the immune system.The side effects of Chemotherapy doesn`t end here.Chemotherapy leaves behind toxins in the blood,bones,brain,organs and skin.These toxins poison the body and become free radicals and attack an already severely weakened immune system.Chemotherapy patients often suffer from long -lasting side effects that affect their health and quality of life.
It must be noted that Chemotherapy often doesn`t kill all cancer cells.Many Patients often suffer relapses 6 to 7 months after Chemotherapy.In fact medical journals report that a 5-year survival rate is as low as less than 3 percent.Cancer patients, your choice of treatment could determine whether you recover or die a painful dead.
