Natural Support for Renal Cell Carcinoma: Holistic Care

| Modified on Jan 20, 2024

Renal cell carcinoma (RCC), a primary form of kidney cancer, presents a significant health challenge. While medical treatments like surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy are primary methods for managing RCC, many individuals seek complementary approaches to support these treatments. In this article, we explore various natural remedies that can play a supportive role in the holistic care of renal cell carcinoma.

1. Dietary Changes

A nutritious diet is crucial in supporting the body during RCC treatment. Foods rich in antioxidants, such as berries, leafy greens, nuts, and seeds, can help combat oxidative stress and support overall health. Omega-3 fatty acids found in fish like salmon and mackerel may reduce inflammation, a key factor in cancer progression. Reducing processed foods, sugars, and red meats is also recommended to decrease the risk of further complications.

2. Herbal Supplements

Several herbs and supplements are known for their anti-cancer properties and can be beneficial in managing RCC. Turmeric, with its active compound curcumin, is renowned for its anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer effects. Green tea extract, rich in epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), has been studied for its potential to inhibit cancer cell growth. It's essential to consult with a healthcare provider before starting any herbal supplements, especially when undergoing other cancer treatments.

3. Physical Activity

Regular physical activity can improve overall health and well-being for individuals with RCC. Exercises like walking, yoga, or light aerobics can boost energy levels, improve mood, and enhance physical function. It's important to tailor the exercise regimen to individual capabilities and medical advice.

4. Mind-Body Practices

Mind-body practices like meditation, yoga, and tai chi can be beneficial in reducing stress, anxiety, and improving the quality of life for RCC patients. These practices promote relaxation and can help in coping with the emotional challenges of a cancer diagnosis.

5. Hydration and Kidney Health

Proper hydration is essential for kidney health. Drinking adequate water helps in flushing toxins from the body and maintaining kidney function. Herbal teas, such as dandelion or nettle, may also support kidney health, but it's important to discuss with a healthcare provider before trying these remedies.

6. Immune-Boosting Foods and Supplements

Foods rich in vitamins C and E, selenium, and zinc can support the immune system. Supplements like vitamin D, known for its immune-modulating properties, may also be beneficial.


While natural remedies can offer support in managing renal cell carcinoma, they should be used as a complementary approach alongside conventional medical treatments. Consulting with healthcare professionals, including oncologists and naturopathic doctors, is critical to ensure a safe and coordinated treatment plan. Remember, each individual’s journey with RCC is unique, and what works for one person may not be suitable for another.

Hey Bill: i would like your opinion on the alkalizing with baking soda and citrus fruits of ACV for a person with Renal cell Cancer. Do you think the sodium from the baking soda would be damaging?

Hi Mary...I think the use of Ted's alkalizing remedes is perhaps a very bad idea for someone who has renal cell carcinoma. Since the main job of the kidneys is to balance the fluids and electrolytes -- like calcium, sodium, magnesium, potassium etc -- then adding large quantites of sodium that cannot be cleared or balanced by the cancerous kidneys, would be of no benefit and might actually be quite a dangerous protocol in my opinion.

But this would also depend on factors like whether both kidneys are cancerous, what stage the cancer is at and is the patient on dialysis. If you did want to use alkalizing, I would strongly advise that you see the patient's renal oncologist and get his advice first.

Notably, on Dr Simoncini's cancer website, there is a long list of cancers that he successfully treats with his sodium bicarbonate IV Therapy. In this list are some very difficult cancers that he treats and cures -- including liver cancer, bone cancer, pancreatic cancer and brain cancer. But nowhere on that list or elsewhere on his site has he ever listed successfully treating renal or kidney cancer with his therapy. This is why it is not really advisable to treat a renal cancer patient with Ted's alkalizing remedies without, at least, the advice and supervision of a renal oncological specialist.

Hello, I have been thoroughly blessed by the postings & information on this site! I have been battling Stage 4 Renal Cell Carcinoma for over a year now. I tried the "traditional" route with chemo & radiation for all of 2010, only to be discouraged last December to hear that the cancer had spread to more lymph nodes & my right lung. I have been researching natural remedies for several months now and in December I radically changed my diet to Vegan, I'm supplementing through a holostic doctor, exercising, taking detox and magnesium baths and I'm currently on David William's H2O2 protocol up to 7 drops of 35%, 3 times a day.

I was reading about the cleansing benefits of taking magnesium oxide powder to clean the entire digestive tract and that appealed to me because of the digestive issues I'm having. It sounds like this substance would really "clean house" and make my intestines & colon clean as a whistle, as well as deliver more oxygen to my body.

My question is, can I take magnesium oxide while I am on the H2O2 protocol? I assume I wouldn't be taking them together (meaning at the same time, not mixed), but I want to ask before I make any purchases. I have been feeling fantastic since I've made all of these changes and I have very little limitations, but my bowel movements are still not what they need to be. I know that could also be my body adjusting to the radical diet changes. Any help you could give me would be great as I'd like to start taking the Mag Oxide soon if it's safe. I would also appreciate any articles about using these two things toether, if you have any. Can you reply by email?

Thanks a bunch & I look forward to sharing my victory testimony on your site after beating one of the toughest cancers to beat!

Kind regards, Dennis Swanson

Posted by AC (Anon) on 09/20/2012: Hi Ted, My mother is diagnosed with renal cell carcinoma and after 1 year came back metastatic cancer in spine. After 6 months she's having pain in her hip. We are afraid her cancer came back in her bone. She refuses conventional care, she believes in natural treatment at home. She's young and I dont want her to die. Can you please tell me which protocol should I use on her at home? Thank you.

Strict dietary control of sugar, sweet fruits, wheat, honey, maple syrup, carbohydrate, vegetable oils, and fats. There is no problem about vegetable, partially cooked meats and fishes. Statistically the chances of survival through dietary control of blood sugar below 90 mg/dL is a lot better then chemotherapy without dietary control. I estimated that chances are 97% survival for first year by dietary control while chemotherapy is dismal with 97% probability of dying in the first year, in fact it averages around 3 months after initial diagnosis doing chemo.

Eat most of meals between 12.00 pm to 6.00 pm. Minor meals in the morning, and none after 6.00.

The most important supplement is always lysine 1000 mg taken every hour for four hours twice a day, DHEA 25 mg, melatonin 10 mg, and B50 complex, N Acetyl Cysteine. Control of cancer is often within the first 3 days of lysine, N acetyl cysteine, DHEA, melatonin, and possibly BHT for hard tumors.

Ted, First of all, I want to thank you for your invaluable contributions on Earth Clinic! I know your research/posts have helped so many.

My dad has been diagnosed with kidney cancer. I read your post about a man who used Amistar to send his into remission. I looked up this product and am a little worried about introducing a fungus into my father's body to possibly defeat his cancer. Are there any ingredients that may be harmful to the body in Amistar? Also, any restrictions/supplementation if he starts use of Amistar?

This is just my opinion, but as far as I know, it may contain camphor and azoxystrobin the rest is water. I used 1/2 of the Amistar product and mixed in water, and used in dropper bottle such as a drop three times or four times per day, which is on the low side. It is generally harmless as far as I know, and used for fungus which is known to cause cancer, but also rheumatoid arthritis and autoimmune disease. Autoimmune diseases and cancer are similar in that the organism invades INTRACELLULARLY as opposed to extracellular, where most antibiotics do not, and then make home inside the cells. This is why DMSO is sooooo effective in converting cancer cells into normal cells. And it makes it ideal to get anything in that works anti-fungally across the board, one such things is obviously Amistar, mixed with DMSO. Say 1 drop in a 100 cc of DMSO, and applied to the outside where kidney cancer resides and do it once every other day. You can do once everyday, I think, but not all cases, by adding to that in combination or separate aloe vera oil. If in combination it is 50% aloe oil and 50% DMSO and make it up in 50 cc or 100 cc solutions and add Amistar, azoxystrobin one drop. If used separately, you just add DMSO and one drop on the area then apply straight aloe vera oil to prevent inflammation that commonly occurs in tumor cells converted to normal cells. Disulfide, hydrogen sulfide, and MSM are the ones used to kill fungus because of its ability to disturb their sulfur cycle found in all fungus organism and fungus like as in mycobacterium, that may cause cancer as they also produces aflatoxin that causes cancer.

I am investigating another one, if you have issues which is very effective also, which is asafoetidia (Devil's dung) although I can't say it is more effective than azoxystrobin, but it is very effective against a lot of other natural supplements out there. It's mix is 0.25% is effective concentration used, so it's about 100 - 500 mg dosages. I can't say the exact dosages yet, but it is around there. Maybe twice a day. Part of its killing efficacy is the asofoetida have chemicals that contain disulfide smell, which interfere with their sulfur cycle again so that's why garlic is also antifungal. This may be used also.

All you have to know, and I have my share of ups and downs in cancer treatment and most important factor in ANY cancer treatment, but people seem to take it in a stride, but is central to my cancer remedy: blood sugar. If your blood sugar is 86 to 90 mg/dL you will do well regardless of the natural cancer treatment used, or if you do nothing you have a 97% survival. The primary issue is to avoid the following: artificial sugar, ribose, fructose, sucrose (table sugar), and complex carbohydrates. Now for complex carbohydrate, is divided in the following order: white bread, whole wheat bread, white rice, rye, barley, brown rice. Cancer patients get worse if blood sugar are 104 or 105 and over, but especially so if 110. But remember I don't based on Fasting Blood Glucose, but you can use that also, I based on 1 hour after you eat. Regardless of what standard you use, 1 hour after meal or FBS (fasting blood glucose) a number above 110 mg/dL is not good. IT IS IDEAL that you avoid all forms of carbohydrate but if your sugar is not a problem, than is ok to take brown rice or white rice. And by ok I mean below 90 mg/dL or at least below 100 mg/dL, any number above that is unacceptable. Of course, the reason why they fail is they refuse to follow the basic rules of controlling blood sugar I don't care if you use conventional or anything, it's the same. Now since most cancers are diabetic, maple syrup and bicarbonate never work, your adding to the blood sugar to an already a person who is diabetic. One thing you have to understand: cancer makes your healthy cells insulin resistant, while it allows all sugar in cancer cells. That's why any form of sugar for cancer treatment will ultimately fail.

The second thing you must have is blood glucose meter. It is very important to know and monitor them, because cancer, sugar and say CEA-125, or AFP for example go more or less the same direction. With one exception, blood sugar SPIKES is what cancer will proliferate, which occurs after 1 hour eating. Hence it is measured one hour after eating. This is especially true for people who believe taking carbs is good for you. It is not, but they have bad habits and you want to take not all all, but if you must take it, keep it below 100 mg/dL I prefer to stay at 90 mg/dL. There may be an exception to all of this, but for 90% of the population with cancer this appears to be true.

Another thing I must comment on DMSO, it gets the water out of the tumor cells AND sugar. Remember DMSO is know as carrier to get things in, but it is also a carrier to get things out. That's why is so wonderful in cancer therapy when you get Amistar in, but also asafoetida, it also gets water and sugar out of tumor cells, but also it kills the fungus that exists inside the cells where ordinary antibiotic cannot get in, with a few exception such as doxycycline, but it too have problems, it is somewhat weak in cancer effect, but is well known in such use.

Hi Ted: My friend has a bad cancer. It is called Renal cel. It has spread to his bones and recently he broke his femur, from just a little fall. that is how they found out it had moved. It is a tumor in his bone. I know you have addresed cancer before but would you mind on addressing this. He is being pressured to do chemo and radiation and is looking for an alternate way. Thank you so much, Mary

Dear Mary:

Renal cancer is located in the kidney area, therefore alkalizing the urine using 1 teaspoon of baking soda after meals 3 times a day may neutralize its acidity. However, the use of baking soda or sodium bicarbonates do not go deep enough to neutralize the cancer cells in the bone area.

The remedy I am likely to use is the lysine 1000 mg take about 6 times a day to 8 times a day, hourly dose. If too impractical then it's 2000 mg taken at two hourly doses for four times a day. Its usually taken over the course of at least a month. Most aspartic acid, aspartate, and aspartame sweeteners tend to cause the urine to be very acid and support cancer therefore, this is avoided.

The most important rule in cancer is to avoid sugar, fructose and fruit juices. This is the single biggest mistake in cancer remedy. Sugar or fructose or glucose shuts down the immune system for at least 2 hours and hence any fruit juice or even cola has to be avoided especially the artificial sugar which tends to break down into methanol alcohol, that in itself is toxic. The threonine helps if it is added to the lysine, as well as magnesium chloride 250 mg at hourly intervals as the lysine mentioned or two hourly at still 250 mg, not 500 mg because anytime it's over 250 it tends to cause diarhea, which sometimes is desired in certain cancer that promotes constipation.

The reason why magnesium works is it stops cachexia, but also has antiviral that kills cancer virus, but other forms of cancer. It's noticed that in Egypt, they take a very large amounts of magnesium in their diets, which is why cancer is generally rarely found there. Also I have tested the use of magnesium when added with hydrochloric acid drops as a remedy for cancer cachexia, or even added together with the lysine. In general I used lysine monohydrate hydrochloride as a preferred form, and calcium is not added or used as fillers, it tends to reduce it's effectiveness. Should magnesium chloride 250 mg, or trimagnesium citrate cause any loose stools, the dose is reduced to 100 mg, until there is no effect, but in certain conditions where loose stool is desired due to constipation then the dose may be doubled.

Bloodroot tincture seems helpful at does of 10-15 drops, where the solution is dark red and not clear, is the ideal color. A clear bloodroot don't generally work as well as those of darker color. It's taken at 4 or 5 times a day and can be mixed into the lysine/threonine/magnesium mixture. One final one is the use of tannic acid, which deactivates the neuraminic acid, that makes cancer cells become stealth. The tannic acid deactivates the n acetyl neuraminic acid and causes the tumor to be visible so that the white blood cells can eat the tumor slowly. To help facilitate the destruction of tumor, a bromelain supplement, I personally use 20% bromelain, 6500 GDU, mixed in 80% glycine, as glycine is somewhat anti cancer too, but helps in dissolving the bromelain from clumping together and has to be mixed in a warm cup of water, The bromelain 20% is taken at 1 teaspoon is a cup of warm water three times a day. This will digest the fibrin of the tumor cells and hence is taken on an empty stomach, preferably with the use of straws as it tends to digest the proteins and plaques of your mouth and teeth, and causes somewhat of a dry throat. The exception being that in instances of cancer cachexia, the bromelain is also taken during meals, so that the body can access the protein breakdown to get the needed amino acid to prevent further atrophy caused by a deficiency in protein, whether they come from vegetable source, such as beans and soybeans or from fishes. Land meats is generally frowned upon due to the presence of phosphates, which tends to promote cancer. Sugar, fructose, glucose, and aspartame (Equal, Splenda, and other brands) must be absolutely avoided as sugar shuts down the immune system, and promote the fermentative cancer. THe cancer produces lactic acid, which by their nature is toxic to the most cells, especially the liver and causes the cancer cachexia, by preventing liver from supplying the raw material needed for the stomach to produce the acid necessary to get pepsin that's needed to digest the protein. Therefore, because of this problem, the food is generally given in a digested protein form, of liquid amino acid diets, as a way to bypass the lack of stomach ability to digest the protein and take hydrochloric acid drops. The drops is 4-8 drops of concentrated HCl per 250 cc of water and can be taken in event the person cannot eat, if it comes to that extreme.

I am very dissatisfied with the use of chemotherapy, and prefer to use tannic acid and bromelain as a natural chemotherapy as it is free from side effect. For example, a tannic acid for bone cancer is taken at 1/4 teaspoon of tannic acid with 1/4 teaspoon of sorbitol. Sorbitol is used to remove the constipation from the tannic acid as it is a laxative, but if sorbitol is not available mannitol, and perhaps xylitol maybe substituted and add at equal amounts between 1/4 teaspoon, and up to 1/2 teaspoon. I haven't yet researched these polyol sugar, but the lower the calorie they are the more it is likely to kill cancer cells that way since they are not fermentable, of even if they are the energy needed to ferment is so great that it kills cancer cells that way. Erythritol is the least calorie, but they don't offer the required laxative effect, so we might use this differently to stop the cancer inside from fermenting, but can't be use along side with tannic acid, which really needs laxative producing mannitol, sorbitol,or xylitol, while erythritol is used to stop their fermentation separately. Take plenty of MSM, which will convert a metastatic tumor into a benign one within the month at 1 teaspoon four times a day. This should be ideal for bone cancer.


p.s. The tannic acid formula with the sorbitol (70% solution, or powdered) mentioned for this particular bone cancer is taken ideally 3 times a day.

I have kidney cancer and would like to know what I could do to help kill the cancer. The cancer is 2.3 cm and has not grown in 2yr. I am taking:
* 1 tsp baking soda Daily with 8oz. water.
* I am eating 8 bitter mellon seeds daily for my diabetic condition which works but wonder are they safe.
* I use 2 tsp of apple cider vingar in 80z. water 2 time daily.
* I take 1/2 cup organic cottage cheese w/3 tsp of flaxoil w/ high lugines blended. My diet has been cleaned up, less meat more freah organic vegi. I use sealt, most herbs in food, olive oil,stevia sweetener,
* I also use lemon tea and green tea 1x day.some times have candy,cookies soda or cheese cake with sugar alcohols or splenda. Im not sure if these are harming me?

Appreciate your advice.I feel my body is trying but needs more help. Thank you

Modern diets are lacking in omega 3 type 2, which is from fish oils, and a certain unique GLA from the evening primrose oil. The other that I have found to be increasingly important and has to be added somewhat to the original baking soda remedy is the potassium citrate. If a modification of baking soda is needed, for example, it's going to be this:

1/4 teaspoon of baking soda + 1/4 teaspoon of potassium citrate in one glass of water taken twice or three times a day. It's a milder recipe but when you add up everything, it's still about 1 teaspoon a day, divided equally between potassium and sodium. Potassium seems to be in more need in cases of cancer, but not exclusively sodium or potassium.

While flaxseed and cottage cheese is good, I believe in addition of fish oil 1000 mg once every other day, plus once a week evening primrose oil.

In actual practice of doctors who use baking soda to reduce cancer, they use much larger dose, but I prefer to reduce less dose and go more slowly since it has less problems about other things such as loose stools, etc.

I have also found cancer to be increasingly having their origins where a certain part of the brain is damage as seen in CAT scans and it is also possible looking at CAT scans to find where the location of the cancer is just by looking at the brain. Assuming it's the kidney, then the trauma region of the brain is likely to be located in the side area of the head. Therefore, certain supplements that support brain function such as omega 3, granulated lecithin once a day, three times a week vitamin B complex, reduction of eating of peanuts, potatoes, wheat products, dairy products, chlorinated and fluoridated water are necessary.

Certain supplements which support brain and neural growth is piracetam 800 mg and hydergine 2.5-5 mg taken only 4 days out of a week.

Cancer grows whenever blood glucose is very high. To prevent sugar spikes it is important to drink at least 2 glass of 8 oz water before every meal, and then of any amount during, and after meal. Once the water dilutes the sugar spikes the blood sugar does not rise and the cancer eventually starves itself from the lack of sugar. Therefore it is important that all fruits and fructose are avoided and vitamin C sodium might be taken twice a week.

There is one drinking water that may increase immune system and that's my ormus drinking water recipe, which may contain monoatomic elements of superconductive material, theoretically speaking, may help immune system by healing by promoting intracellular communication, and is an important element of the brain which needs superconductive elements too. The simple drinking water recipe is:

1/4 teaspoon of sea salt plus 1/4 teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate plus 1/4 teaspoon of potassium citrate in one liter of drinking water. It's a weaker ORMUS remedy so that it can be more gentle to the kidneys.

Since Urea level is low, (from low dietary proteins) I think drinking once a day whey protein in the morning might help, plus an early dinner before 5 p.m. or 4.30 p.m.

Whichever the direction aggressive priority is on reducing sugar intake and excess vegetable oils.
