Holistic Leukemia Care: Ted's Remedies & Herbal Insights

| Modified on Apr 07, 2024
Bidens Pilosa

Leukemia, a serious condition impacting blood-forming tissues, necessitates a diverse treatment approach. While crucial medical therapies lead the way, incorporating holistic methods like herbal remedies and dietary modifications shows promise. In this exploration, we also highlight Ted's unique alkaline-focused remedies, offering an alternative perspective in leukemia management.

Understanding Leukemia: Types, Symptoms, and Treatment

Leukemia is a form of cancer typically originating in white blood cells, causing abnormal cell production and weakening the body's ability to fight infections. Types of leukemia include childhood leukemia and acute myeloid leukemia, each presenting unique challenges in treatment and symptomatology. Common symptoms include fever, fatigue, unexplained weight loss, swollen lymph nodes, and frequent infections. Treatment complexity varies depending on leukemia type and stage, highlighting the importance of a tailored medical approach.

Complementary Holistic Approaches to Leukemia Treatment

While prioritizing medical treatment is essential in leukemia management, certain holistic therapies may offer supportive benefits.

  1. Essiac Tea and Anti-Cancer Herbs: Some herbs, like those found in Essiac Tea, are noted for their potential anti-cancer properties.
  2. Immune-Boosting Supplements: Vitamin C may help support the immune system, which is crucial in battling leukemia.
  3. Dietary Modifications for Leukemia Patients: A diet without sugar and white flour, focusing on organic foods, can support overall health during leukemia treatment.
  4. Natural Remedies for Symptom Management: Remedies like papaya and periwinkle may assist in managing low platelet counts and supporting recovery.

Summary of Ted's Remedies for Leukemia

Ted's Approach:

The famous contributor, Ted from Bangkok, shared his experience in 2005 with using alkalinity to aid in leukemia treatment. He emphasizes the importance of maintaining the body's pH balance through specific remedies. His approach revolves around the idea that increasing the body's alkaline pH buffers can boost the immune system and help in managing leukemia.

Key Remedies Suggested by Ted:

  • Baking Soda and Citric Acid: A mixture of 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda and 1/2 teaspoon of citric acid in 1/2 glass of water, taken twice daily. This is to build up pH buffers over 3-4 weeks.
  • Sodium Citrate and Potassium Citrate: As a newer remedy, 1/2 teaspoon of sodium citrate and 1/8 teaspoon of potassium citrate in 1/2 glass of water, recommended two to three times daily.
  • Maintenance Dose: After a month, the dose is reduced to 1/4 teaspoon each of baking soda and citric acid.
  • Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) Addition: Adding 3-5 drops of 3% H2O2 food grade to the alkaline mixture twice daily to further enhance oxygen levels in the blood.
  • Lemon Juice and Baking Soda: An alternative remedy using 2 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice with 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass of water, taken three times a day.
  • Clove Oil: Adding 1 drop of clove oil in water, best used in conjunction with baking soda.

Reader's Experience and Inquiry

Carol, a reader from Australia, shared her positive experience with Ted's remedy, particularly noting the disappearance of inflammation and avoidance of chemotherapy. She inquires about the ideal urinary pH levels and whether these standards vary internationally.

Ted's Reply to Carol

Ted affirmed that the ideal urinary pH range to ward off cancer and viruses is between 7.0 and 7.3. He reiterates that this standard is globally applicable. Ted advises maintaining this pH level, especially for those with a history of cancer, to ensure the complete eradication of cancer cells. He also suggests adding vitamin C to the mixture for its antioxidant and anticancer properties, alongside its benefits for heart disease prevention.

Bidens Pilosa

Bidens pilosa, an herb from the Asteraceae family, has been suggested by two readers as a potential aid in managing Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL). Known for its immune-modulating properties, Bidens pilosa contains phenolic compounds and flavonoids that may have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antitumoral effects.1

Although research is still emerging, these properties suggest a potential role in supporting the immune system in conditions like CLL. However, it's important to consult healthcare professionals before using this herb, as comprehensive clinical evidence is still needed to fully understand its efficacy and safety in leukemia treatment.

Papaya Leaf Extract

Kevin from Plymouth, IN, shared his positive experience with Papaya Leaf Extract in managing his Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL). He reported significant improvements in his platelet counts, mentioning an increase from 20,000 to 280,000 over time. Kevin also combined this with other supplements and dietary changes. He stressed that while his regimen worked for him, results might vary for others. There's limited scientific research specifically on Papaya Leaf Extract for CLL, so it's important to consult healthcare professionals before trying new treatments.

Medical Warning: It's crucial to discuss any alternative treatments with your healthcare provider to ensure they do not interfere with conventional medical treatments. This article is not intended to replace professional medical advice.

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

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

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

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

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

Essential Oils (Young Living), as follows:

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

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

Hello Pat,

I am so sorry to hear about your grandson.

Some things you can try:

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

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

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

Clary sage oil is supposed to be good too.

In Response to Sarah

Hi Ronnie,

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

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

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

All the best, Ronniie

Hi Beth,

If it ends up that your father moves forward with chemo, it might be useful to consider melatonin as adjunctive treatment with it. Melatonin affords multiple protective effects against the damage caused by the chemo and is itself effective against this form of leukemia and has synergy with specific forms of chemo as outlined in this study:


And this one:


If your father decides to go all natural, curcumin has shown benefit against AML.




Another consideration would be EGCG, considered to be the most active component of tea.


One downside to EGCG at pharmacological dosing is that it can have a negative impact on the liver and would require regular liver enzyme testing while being used.

Regarding the declining platelet count, melatonin may be helpful in that area also :


You might also consider contacting Dr. Shallenberger in Nevada via his contact form or by telephone as he can advise on dosing of melatonin as he often uses 300+ mg/day total in divided doses in his cancer patients. Here is his number

(775) 884-3990

Here is a link to his contact form :

Thank you very much for taking the time to compile these articles.

I'm a holistic health practitioner and have heard probably over a hundred good stories of people using silver for various ailments. It's interesting to see research being done on its use in the field of cancer.

Thank you.

Hi Leslie,

The studies regarding silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) for various forms of cancer are slowly evolving, but are continuing to expand and advance in comprehensiveness of details. As a basic example of this, this new study suggests that the reducing agent used to reduce the silver nitrate into AgNPs can increase the effectiveness of cytotoxicity of the AgNPs to cancer cells while reducing the toxicity to normal cells :


Here are some highlights :

Algae-AgNPs synthesized with Noctiluca scintillans contain biologically active anticancer compounds identified using GC-MS.

Algae-AgNPs display higher potency towards cancer cells than to normal cells, reducing cell viability and inducing apoptosis.

Algae-AgNPs reduce cancer cell migration and downregulate MMP-9 level.

In vivo, Algae-AgNPs diminish tumor growth.

Algae-AgNPs exhibit minimal toxicity in vitro and in vivo.

Other recent studies have delved into how different capping agents used on the AgNPs can also increase cytotoxicity to cancer cells while inhibiting aggregation of the AgNPs and extending shelf life. Other studies have helped to determine how nanoparticle size can optimize the effectiveness of the AgNPs against cancer cells while minimizing toxicity to normal cells and these studies have helped determine an optimal particle size range for AgNPs in the 12 to 20 nm size range.

Unfortunately, the human testing for cancer is still lacking leaving people to their own devices when it comes to cancer. Not an ideal situation to be sure.

Lemon is unique, though, aside from being the only anionic food, it's not known exactly why.

There are too many assumptions about it to even determine what to look at but one thing's for sure, it's alkalizing. Personally, I think it's a mechanism involving lemon, the kidneys and Vitamin D. Perhaps it repairs the vitamin D processing that takes place in the kidneys, I don't know, but vitamin D is important when it comes to regulating pH in the body and lemon is good for the kidneys and alkalizing. Whether it's responsible for the alkalizing effect it has, directly, or it's the vitamin D or the kidney or God-only-knows what other function it could be, who knows? There's been research but the effect of lemon is all over the place and many of its effects seem counter-intuitive to the "educated" mind so - there is some confusion, in-fighting and politics but, regardless, lemon is...unique. And awesome. On that, everyone agrees.

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

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

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

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

Hope this helps and good luck. Report your results.

For Leukemia, I would check my pH and raise it with baking soda and start using liposomal vitamin C.

See the video on the internet about the New Zealand farmer who came out of a coma (from pneumonia and Swine flu) via vitamin C treatment. A year later he found his leukemia was gone also.

I have met and talked with a lady who, at age 21 was given six weeks to live because of cancer. (I believe that was in the late 1970s.) Her father called Linus Pauling who recommended 50,000mg vitamin C daily via IV. The hospital did administer the IV. She was cured. She is a grandmother today.

Liposomal vitamin C taken by mouth is said to be more effective than vitamin C administered via IV. Much information is on the internet.

The pH of our blood needs to be a little on the alkaline side.

An oncologist, Dr Tulio Simonici, and Dr Marc Sircus Ac, OMD both advocate using baking soda to overcome cancer.

You can check your pH in the morning and adjust it as needed. Simply dissolve the recommended amount of baking soda in a glass of cold water and drink. The method documented by the Arm & Hammer Company to raise our pH back in 1925 was:

Day one: Take a total of six doses of half a teaspoon of baking soda in one cup of water. Take at two hour intervals.

Day two: Take a total of six doses of half a teaspoon of baking soda in one cup of water. Take at two hour intervals.

Day three: Take only two doses ? one in the morning and another at night.

Continue taking one dose in the morning until illness is cured.

Again: Check your pH first.

Michelle C.,

Because of the serious nature of this disease whatever you decide to do, you should include your doctor in any decisions you make regarding your niece! Here is something to discuss with her doctor. On that note, the main active constituent from different colored teas is considered to be Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). EGCG and in the following study, EGCG has shown benefit in GVHD models and according to the study linked to below, quercetin is helpful at increasing the uptake of EGCG while quercetin alone has no effect on GVHD, but if the quercetin allows a lower dose of the EGCG to be effective that would be helpful as there is some data that suggests that some people may have liver issues from high dose EGCG. In any case it seems worth mentioning to her doctor for review, since EGCG is a very common supplement that thousands of people use regularly with a fairly good safety profile. It also has potent antioxidant effects which would be important in GVHD. EGCG also has antiinflammatory properties which again would be of importance in GVHD.

Here is a link to a study showing potential benefit of EGCG in GVHD and based on this study, her doctor may be able to determine a functional dose for your niece. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5245838/

Here is a link to typical EGCG supplements on Amazon :


Please note that the percentage of EGCG varies considerably from product to product. Although the study is a rodent model study of GVHD, EGCG has a known safety profile in humans from other studies.

Another consideration is Curcumin which is considered to be the active component of the spice Turmeric. Here is a link to a study that suggests it may be beneficial also: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3688629/

Here is a link to typical curcumin supplements on Amazon : https://www.amazon.com/s?k=curcumin&ref=nb_sb_noss_1

One drawback to curcumin is its relatively low bioavailability, but as you review that Amazon page you will notice that there are many different formulations that offer better absorption.

Good luck to you and your niece and please keep us updated! Art

This is correct. The truth, however, is that it would only take few hours for WBC to increase. In a study, (18) volunteers ingested 50 g of 90% cocoa chocolate (Noir Prodigieux, Lindt) after fasting for 8 hours.

These are the results of their blood test four hours after ingesting 50 grams of 90% cocoa chocolate. 5.9 WBC to 7.0 WBC, this is just after 4 hours.

Parameter Baseline
Four hours after dark chocolate ingestion
Mean±SD Mean±SD p

Neutrophils (x109/L) 3.4±0.8 3.9±0.7 0.001
Lymphocytes (x109/L) 2.1±0.7 2.3±0.5 0.056

More practical approach is to take 2 to 3 teaspoons of 100% Cocoa daily.

Cacao is unprocessed and is even better, if you can not get that, regular 100% Hershey's Cocoa will do.

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

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

CLL can be a transforming disease, that turns into other types of leukemia or lymphoma's. Your friend should make sure to find out what type of leukemia it is for sure, it can mimic other lymphoma's, hopefully your friend is able to get a second opinion and has a good Dr. who knows for sure what type he is dealing with. You can find a good site for this disease at clltopics.org, it will answer all your questions.

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

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

ATP is synonymous with life and at the core of our resistance to disease. In reduced concentrations cells are no longer able to exclude solutes. The components of the cells mutate when they become injured. The pro-metabolic hormone insulin stimulates ATP generation. In the absence of insulin glucose promotes cancer.

The famous cancer researcher, Otto Warburg, clearly showed that insulin exerts it's anti-carcinogenic effect by activating the enzyme complex PDH. Warburg noted the availability of blood sugar had no effect on tumor growth in the presence of insulin. Cancer cells are defined by their reliance on fermentation. Glucose, insulin, and oxygen are the fundamental factors that make up the provision of support that prevents cancer formation. The nutrients in raw organic fruits promote respiration. Fructose increases oxygen by carboxylation.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Replied by Dave

Hi Nano writer from Hotspot.

Re Ltina and leukemia cause.

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

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

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

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

I had my friend with AML [Acute myeloid leukemia] take Coral Calcium, Milk Thistle, and Oregano Oil with carvacrol 70. After treatment with those three things she went into remission after four months! This is no joke! I did the same, and my husband did also but I had him add frankensense oil to his regimen. I'm not a medical doctor so I cannot legally prescribe any medication. I assume no liability. Just wanted to share my experiences with you.

S: You will not need specifically Coral Calcium, but you will need alkalizing remedies in general. Here a link to E.C. pages for acidosis and alkaline remedies to reverse. https://www.earthclinic.com/cures/pH.html

For online purchase of the other products many European folks order from Iherb.com as they have good international shipping rates. Garlic is also a very important herb for this condition. Ebay.com is also good for international shopping.

Oh, some method of detox will very much help. https://www.earthclinic.com/remedies/oil_pulling.html

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

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

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

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

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

Two supplements that you might look into are colloidal silver and melatonin for leukemia. Here are a couple of studies that suggest potential efficacy.

This first review discusses the potential of melatonin in leukemia :


Here is a relevant quote from the study :

>>> ' We first reviewed the relationship between shift work and the incidence rate of leukaemia and then discussed the role of melatonin receptors (MT1 and MT2) and their functions in leukaemia. Moreover, the connection between inflammation and leukaemia, and melatonin-induced anti-leukaemia mechanisms including anti-proliferation, apoptosis induction and immunomodulation are comprehensively discussed. Apart from that, the synergistic effects of melatonin with other anticancer compounds are also included. In short, this review article has compiled the evidence of anti-leukaemia properties displayed by melatonin and discuss its potential to act as adjunct for anti-leukaemia treatment. ' <<<

This next study discusses the role of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) in leukemia :


Here is a relevant quote from the study :

>>> ' Among the diverse forms of biosynthesized metallic and metal oxide NPs, silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) have been demonstrated to be one of the most effective antimicrobial and anticancer agents due to their extraordinary properties [69], [70], [71], [72], [73], [74]. The most prominent outcomes of exposing cells with AgNPs are included affecting cellular metabolic activity via arresting the respiratory chain of the cells, influencing cell division through membrane inflicting damage, and inducing numerous subordinate effects, such as the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS), gene alteration, enhancement of apoptosis or necrosis, and elevating the oxidative stress and mitochondrial damage inside the cancer cells (Fig. 4) [75], [76], [77]. Additionally, their protective effect against bacterial, fungal, and viral infections could be very desirable during chemo- and radiotherapies due to the decreased immunological resistance of cancer patients [78] ' <<<

Best wishes and please keep us posted on your friends progress.

Hi Shauna of Alberta,

A friend of mine claims that seriously high doses of intravenous Vitamin C helped him considerably with his possible leukemia diagnosis.

Be best if you could find a qualified practitioner who specializes in such treatment, as there is probably considerably more to it than just that one thing but that is the one thing he raved about. He now appears to be in remission (quite quickly! ) which is great!

I am following his progress with keen interest, so might post an up-date later on when I learn more and when he is in a better place.


1) There would have been a serious amount of praying going on for this guy - I know that for a fact.

2) Also, he had to be quite assertive in pushing for help in the early stages, so your friend should do likewise: its the squeaky hinge that gets the oil remember!

Hope all goes well!

Cheers from Down Under

In response to the post whose brother has AML:

drink 3 time/day with empty stomach:

You blend a whole dandelion with root and flower then squeeze about 6 oz, then mix with honey for easy to drink. This helps a man only had 6 months to live, his blood count became normal range after three months drink this liquid.

Replied by James Pratt

I think your message needs a little clarification. you mix with 6 oz of what because then you said you add honey so do you mix it with 6 oz of Honey which seems excessive or do you mix it with 6 oz of another unknown substance?


I want to look this up and find organic dandelions with roots. I am assuming you would blend with some water and add a little honey, if you want.

Great remedy. I will try it. I was just told to go to see an Oncologist my WBC are very low and so are my platelets. I believe with this kind of stuff you can come back strong. I love reading everyone's choices to heal. Thank you.

Here is a relevant quote from the study :

>>> ' Melatonin has exhibited antitumoral properties in various hematological malignancies, including AML (8). However, none of these studies have analyzed in detail the effects of melatonin on AML in relation to prognostic factors. Several gene mutations have been identified as leukemia risk factors, with FLT3 the most frequent site of genetic alterations associated with poor disease outcome (3). Two wt AML cell lines (OCI-AML3 and U-937) and two FLT3-ITD AML cell lines (MV-4-11 and MOLM-13) were incubated with melatonin (0.1–1 mM) for 48 h, and the proportion of viable cells was determined using an MTT assay (Fig. 1A). Melatonin induced a dose-dependent decrease in cell viability in all cell lines, although it exhibited a greater effect in FLT3-ITD mutant cells. ' <<<

Have you found a way to reduce white blood cell count? I was using dandelion root tea and dropped my white count from 354,000 to 245,000 in 7 days. Unfortunately, a brown recluse spider bite forced me onto antibiotics and I have not been able to tolerate the dandelion tea since then.

Essiac Tea, Vitamin C

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

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

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

Good morning all, I have made Essiac tea for many years. I would recommend you get the formula and make your own. Use a formula that uses only the original herbs. This way you can be more sure of the consistency.

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


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

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

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

2. Build the immune system,

3. Starve the cancer (if applicable),

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

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

Be healed!

Ginger, Honey, Garlic Remedy

I want to share this recipe. I personally used it to cure my 84 year old uncle of leukemia. It took 4 months but it was worth it. He refused chemotherapy after seeing what that stuff did to his friends.

Honey and Ginger Root: He Cured Himself From The Most Dangerous Type Of Cancer And Left The Doctor Shocked

13 years ago, a man called Ante Kresic from Zagreb, was told he had one of the deadliest cancers- lung cancer. Moreover, he was informed that he won't live much longer.

Yet, he is a perfectly healthy man today, due to his natural cancer treatment with honey and natural herbs. He defeated lung cancer and now he keeps bees.

He was released from the hospital in April and he decided to try the honey treatment. After several months he went for a regular check-up in the hospital in Zagreb, and the doctors were shocked because he was still alive.

Hence, they advised him to proceed with consuming his homemade remedies and therapies. In summer, his disease was gone. When he had his blood checked, there was no sign that he has ever been ill.

Afterwards, Kresic decided to share his experience in order to help people with similar problems like his one.

The stories of Kresic and people like him serve as evidence that honey mixed with other natural spices as ginger, pine needles and other herbs can defeat cancer.

A woman from Bosnia also succeeded in defeating cancer with a mixture prepared from honey and ginger. She recommends that the honey used should be homemade, or bought from reliable beekeepers. She also shared her recipe, hoping to be able to help others.


Chop two big ginger roots and mix them with (18 oz ) ½ kg of organic honey.

Note: I also added 6oz of garlic minced to the recipe.

Put the mixture in a glass jar and consume 1 tablespoon (use wooden or plastic spoon) 3-4 times a day. The first effects will be achieved in 4 days.

Remember to keep positive and never give up the struggle for your health, regardless of the doctors' predictions, for that is the first step to your improvement.

Hi Rob,

Is there a specific weight for the ginger?

1 organic ginger root is much smaller than one non-organic ginger root.

Also, when should the 1 tablespoon dose be ingested? on empty stomach 30 min before a meal or 2- 3 hours after a meal or mixed in the meal or right after a meal, or it does not matter?

Thank you


@ Anthony

There is no specific weight on the ginger root, it does not come in standard size, so I just eyeball it. I peel and chop enuff ginger root to fit inside 1/2 of a one quart mason jar. Add 6oz garlic cloves peeled (since that's the standard size of the all ready peeled baggies bought in grocery stores), and then put all of it thru the mini salsa chopper. Add it all back to the mason jar a layer at a time and adding honey layer. When it gets to within 2 inches of the top, I used a butter knife to mix it all up in the jar.

Whatever un-peeled ginger you have left over will be used for the next batch.

Also, since making this, I found a mice cancer study involving garlic that reaffirmed my decision to add garlic to the recipe.

Garlic taken for 21 days CURED Cancer

A novel therapeutic anticancer property of raw garlic extract via injection but not ingestion
Source: https://www.nature.com/articles/s41420-018-0122-x

Prior studies suggest a possibility that the anticancer property of garlic is more effective only when exposed directly to cancer cells than absorbed first by the normal epithelial cells of the gastrointestinal tract wall. We tested this possibility in two mouse models of highly aggressive malignancies that cannot yet be cured by conventional therapies: sarcoma 180- and EL4-induced lethal ascites. Daily oral gavages of raw garlic extract (RGE; equivalent to 100 mg wet weight) for 21 days failed to offer any meaningful effect in the mice with malignancies. However, the daily injection of the same amounts of the same materials for 21 days completely cured all the mice of cancer.

Another study:

Ginger Root contains a pungent compound that could be up to 10,000 times more effective than conventional chemotherapy in targeting the cancer stem cells at the root of cancer malignancy.

Numerous studies are confirming that ginger extract has anti-metastatic properties that inhibit many types of cancer, including breast, colon, rectal, liver, lung, prostate, pancreatic, and melanoma.


The anticancer properties of ginger have been found to activate molecular mechanisms that cause cell apoptosis (cell suicide) in cancer cells by activating a pro-apoptosis gene. Compounds within ginger also down-regulate the genes and proteins associated with cancer while increasing cancer inhibitors.

A new study published in PLoS reveals a pungent component within ginger known as 6-shogaol is superior to conventional chemotherapy in targeting the root cause of breast cancer malignancy: namely, the breast-cancer stem cells. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=6-shogaol

Here is the reason why I blended the two together.

My Uncle (86) was consuming this mixture when ever he remembered. His memory isn't the greatest, but I'm sure it was between meals. Just remember I had him eat it for 4 months straight til I felt confident we had burned the cancer out of his body. His blood work revealed he was not showing any protein markers for leukemia.

Funny side note: The doctor ask my uncle ‘what did you do'? My uncle responded, I'm not sure… you will have to ask my nephew...lol! Still waiting for that phone call….


Hi Rob,

What symptoms did your uncle have and what symptoms went away after 4 months?

You mentioned his memory is not the best. Did his memory get better after the 4 months of therapy?

Thank you


@ Anthony

No symptoms that we knew of. Here in the USA when you get to a certain age, you get a twice a year screening and blood work. If my uncle was having issues, he would never tell us out loud (suffer in silence). The reason we found out was thru this screening. His Dr. (I've know him since I was a kid) is pretty straight forward.

As for my uncle memory, he is 86 years old. He is losing it. And his wife (my aunt) she bat sh## crazy. So, no memory did not improve. I often ask him what was it like to live when there was no electricity, or how was the civil war? He gets mad at me when I tease him but at least he remembers those things so thats a plus.
