Treating Cancer Naturally: 11 Strategies That Work

cancerEditor’s Note: This article first appeared in the March 2016 edition of TTAC’s Heroes Against Cancer member newsletter.

Many disturbances to our body’s natural capabilities can promote cancer growth. Some of these concerns include a weak immune system, unbalanced pH, reduced oxygenation to cells, and excessive toxicity.

These problems can be treated and symptoms of cancer can be healed. However, treating cancer naturally using non-toxic therapies requires a diligent approach and a long-term commitment.

You hold the power to unleash your natural healing capabilities. Use these 11 natural cancer treatments to relieve your symptoms and prevent the further spread of tumors throughout your body.

If you are currently cancer-free, these modalities can be used to prevent cancer from gaining a foothold. Unlike toxic cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation, these natural therapies fortify the body and help to keep your immune system strong.

#1. Ketogenic Diet

You can starve cancer by practicing a ketogenic diet consisting of an abundance of healthy fats (about 75%), only 20% protein, and no more than 5% carbohydrates

You can starve cancer by practicing a ketogenic diet consisting of an abundance of healthy fats (about 75%), only 20% protein, and no more than 5% carbohydrates

A ketogenic diet allows the body to turn fat into fuel (form ketones) in a physiological process which does not burden the cell’s powerhouses known as mitochondria. Typically, mitochondria create energy from glucose found in abundance in our carbohydrate-intensive diets.

The ketogenic diet is low in carbohydrates and high in good fats. A ketogenic diet reduces the risk of mutations occurring within cells along with the formation of free radicals, both of which are causes of colon, lung and breast cancer.

The ketogenic diet reduces symptoms in patients with metabolic conditions because it lowers the energy generated from the breakdown of glucose found in simple and complex carbohydrates. Cancer cells thrive off of the energy created from glucose fermentation, which is also called anaerobic metabolism due to the lack of oxygenation.

Examples of ketogenic approved foods include: pastured beef and dairy products (including eggs), organic poultry, and wild fish & seafood. Vegetables and fruits low in carbohydrates (including cabbage, asparagus, lemon and limes), healthy fats such as avocados and coconut oil, along with a few nuts and seeds are usually permitted.

Committing to a ketogenic diet can delay the development of tumors and increase the survival rate for patients by greater than 50 percent.

Using intermittent fasting where you consume meals between a 4 to 8-hour window each day can be a very effective way to get into ketosis. Fasting is an anti-inflammatory, immune strengthening activity as it reduces overall blood sugar and enhances ketone body formation.

#2. Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy treatments improve oxygen supply, and improve cellular conditions which reduces the risk of cancerous growth

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy treatments improve oxygen supply, and improve cellular conditions which reduces the risk of cancerous growth

Couple your commitment to the ketogenic diet with hyperbaric oxygen therapy. The combination of a nutrient-dense ketogenic diet and hyperbaric oxygen therapy is being studied for its effectiveness with various forms of cancer. Many health care practitioners are using this modality to improve immunity and help people overcome chronic disease conditions.

The two therapies combined have shown to decrease tumor growth rates, improve ketosis, and decrease glucose levels.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy promotes oxygen supply to cells and improves pH by decreasing acidity which are two main factors which lead to cancer development. Healthy cells only thrive in conditions where they receive a proper oxygen supply, unlike cancer cells. Receiving hyperbaric oxygen therapy treatments can buffer your body’s pH, improve oxygen supply, and overall improve cellular conditions which reduce risk of cancerous growth.

Most practitioners will recommend a 50-minute session three times per week, but many individuals choose to purchase or rent a portable hyperbaric chamber where they can do several hours at a time or even sleep in it overnight on a regular basis.

#3. Juicing

Juicing cruciferous vegetable sprouts (such as kale, broccoli, & cauliflower sprouts) provides an additional boost of nutrients

Juicing cruciferous vegetable sprouts (such as kale, broccoli, & cauliflower sprouts) provides an additional boost of nutrients

Juicing is an amazing tool which anyone can use to decrease the likelihood of developing cancer. Juicing nutrient-dense foods inundates the body with powerful antioxidants and cancer fighting tools to boost the immune system and improve health. In fact, juicing some vegetables and fruit can supply a higher amount of nutrients for absorption in comparison to eating the entire raw or cooked food source on its own.

When deciding what to juice and how to receive the greatest benefits with minimal effort, try juicing cruciferous vegetable sprouts. Cruciferous vegetables, and their sprouts in particular, contain phytochemicals which have profound anti-aging, anti-cancer, and antioxidant properties.

Kale, broccoli, and cauliflower sprouts are only required in small concentrations to reap health benefits. Such sprouts provide natural enzymes for the body to fight cancer by reducing free radicals and inflammation.

To name only a few examples, sprouts contain nutrients such as:

  • Vitamins and minerals including K and C
  • Chlorophyll
  • Glutathione
  • Amino acids
  • Sulforaphane
  • Beta-carotene
  • Quercetin

Sulforaphane deserves special attention because of its abilities to detoxify natural pathways and reduce the burden of carcinogens in cells and tissue.

Quercetin, obtained in high yield when juicing fresh, high quality foods, increases apoptosis and prevents cancer metastasis.

Always attempt to drink juice immediately after making it in order to consume the juice at its most nutrient dense condition. Otherwise, store the juice in an airtight glass container in the darkest and coolest part of your refrigerator for optimal nutrient quality.

Many practitioners recommend cancer patients consume 32-64 ounces of fresh green juices each day to help slow cancer growth. For prevention, 8-16 ounces can be a great strategy to ensure your body is receiving sufficient micronutrients.

#4. Fermented Foods

Fermented vegetables are a good source of healthy bacteria

Fermented vegetables are a good source of healthy bacteria

Excellent sources for healthy bacteria are fermented foods and beverages. A healthy gut microbiota is important in regulating the entire health of the whole body and mind. Those at increased risk for metabolic conditions and cancer typically have elevated concentrations of harmful bacteria in their gut microbiomes.

Some cancers associated with unhealthy gut bacteria are colorectal cancer, pancreatic carcinoma, and gallbladder cancer.

Bacteroidetes are a main type of bacteria found in fermented foods which produce a substance known as butyrate. Butyrate possesses its own cancer-fighting properties and is involved in enzymatic processes associated with breaking down starch.

Try adding fermented dairy products such as yogurt and kefir with live cultures from grass-fed cows to your diet. Cultured vegetables, Kombucha, sauerkraut, and other fermented foods and beverages are also sources of good bacteria.

Many practitioners recommend 2-4 servings of fermented foods each day to improve health and prevent/slow cancer growth.

If following a ketogenic diet, look for fermented foods that are low in sugar and carbohydrates so that they fit into the ketogenic diet model. This would include sauerkraut, kimchi, coconut water kefir, water kefir, coconut milk kefir, apple cider vinegar, and unsweetened coconut yogurt.

Note of caution: Take things slow when first adding fermented foods to your diet to avoid painful gas and bloating.

#5. Vitamin D

Because vitamin D is a fat-soluble nutrient, it is important to take the supplement with a fatty based meal for optimal absorption

Because vitamin D is a fat-soluble nutrient, it is important to take the supplement with a fatty-based meal for optimal absorption

An important component to the central nervous system and the health of the entire human body is vitamin D. This vital nutrient has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant abilities which continue to astound researchers.

Studies find that vitamin D is associated with reducing autoimmune complications and can limit the release of natural killer cell secretions when situations are unwarranted, such as during pregnancy.

One of the key functions of vitamin D is its ability to balance inflammatory pathways linked to cancer and promote the production of proteins such as GcMAF which regulate cancer cells. (Learn more about GcMAF here.)

GcMAF requires vitamin D in order to be created and fulfill its vital functions to maintaining the health of all cells and tissues. GcMAF has been shown to reverse breast cancer by preventing cancer cells from multiplying. Vitamin D therapy therefore also promotes GcMAF function and the ability to treat lymphoma, bladder, ovarian, and head and neck cancers among many others.

You can find out how much vitamin D is in your system by taking a blood test called the 25-hydroxy vitamin D test. (Other names for the test are 25-OH vitamin D test; Calcidiol; 25-hydroxycholecalciferol test.)

Ideal levels for vitamin D3 are between 60-100 nanograms per milliliter (ng/ml) with ideal ranges between 80-100 ng/ml for individuals looking to prevent or slow cancer growth. As a general rule, take 1,000 IUs per 25 pounds of body weight to slowly raise your vitamin D levels into range. OR take 2,000 IUs per 25 pounds of body weight to quickly raise your vitamin D levels.

#6. Enzymes

Like an ice-cream cone melting on a hot summer day, an enzyme can no longer can serve its function when certain conditions are not met.

Like an ice-cream cone melting on a hot summer day, an enzyme can no longer can serve its function when certain conditions are not met.

Your body contains numerous enzymes required for performing normal physiological processes. Enzymes promote anti-inflammatory effects, stimulate anti-cancer substances, and assist in the removal of toxins from the body.

Perhaps you remember learning from your science teacher how a lock and key model represents an enzyme and the substance it acts upon to perform a function? Maybe you also remember then how if certain conditions are not met, enzymes become unraveled.

For this reason it is very important that the proper balance of pH in our bodies is met. Unfortunately, our diets often leave our internal organs swamped in an environment full of excess acidity and affect the ability of enzymes to perform.

The toxins in the air we breathe, the water we drink, the personal care and household cleaning products we use, and many other lifestyle conditions further exacerbate this problem which can lead to cancer.

You must consciously choose to replenish the enzymes in your body and promote a stable environment for them to function. Enzymes are found in foods such as raw fruits and vegetables, fermented vegetables, and legumes.

A couple of the enzymes contained in fruits and vegetables are quinone reductase and glutathione-S-transferase, which are critical in regulating antioxidant pathways.

When we consume enzyme-containing foods we enhance the natural detoxification pathways to clean the liver, intestines, lungs, and stomach. Citrus fruits such as lemons and limes are rich in organic acids which (ironically enough) help to lower the acidity in our bodies and improve natural functions.

Enzyme therapy has been shown effective in treating individuals receiving chemotherapy treatment and reducing side effects including nausea, fatigue, vomiting, and pain. Systemic enzymes improve the natural immune system defenses which target cancer cells and prevent further growth.

Health practitioners who use enzyme therapy will often recommend anywhere from 5 grams to 45 grams daily depending upon the speed of the cancer growth. Five grams is great prevention for a slow growing tumor, while 45 grams is the typical dosage for individuals with very fast growing cancers.

#7. Turmeric

Research in clinical studies has shown that curcumin found in turmeric root has powerful abilities to treat cancer symptoms, including its ability to fight inflammation. Turmeric exhibits the same inflammation prevention control as do synthetic anti-inflammatory drugs like Tylenol and is supported by more than 570 studies.

Turmeric is a spice which you can add to your favorite curry dishes, Indian cuisines, and traditional soups and stews. It is excellent mixed in with healthy fats such as pastured milk.

Curcumin promotes the production of other antioxidant compounds such as glutathione and prevents oxidative damage or stress done to organs.

Many practitioners recommend 500-1000 mg doses of curcumin 3-4 times daily with food. Curcumin should also be mixed with peperine from black pepper and taken with a fat-based meal for optimal absorption.

#8. Budwig Protocol

Flax-oil-blender-compThe Budwig Protocol was developed by Dr. Johanna Budwig, a world leading expert of her time in research on fats and their impacts in human microbiology. Since the start of her research in 1952, the Budwig Protocol has been used to treat and cure cancers of the lungs, prostate, ovaries, breast, pancreas, and even brain.

The protocol requires the combination of quark (a soft, fresh cheese) and flaxseed oil. The resulting mixture limits the body’s toxic burden by improving oxygenation and promoting detoxification.

The health benefits of the quark mixture can be thought of as a comparison to a dead car battery. The flaxseed oil in the quark is high in electrons and saturated fats which becomes involved in a chemical reaction and protects electrons in the flaxseed so that they may enter dead cells.

This process charges these cells and gives them the boost they need to once again be healthy. Attracting oxygen into cells is necessary to kill off cancer cells and heal the body with healthy ones.

Dr. Budwig found this treatment so effective that she advised her cancer patients to consume quark up to 8 times daily for up to six months.

Follow the recommended recipe for quark preparation:

  • Combine 2 Tablespoons of quark OR organic cottage cheese with 1 Tablespoon flaxseed oil or freshly ground flaxseeds. Using an immersion blender, mix the ingredients together until well combined and no visible oil appears. Eat immediately.

#9. Detoxification

Various detoxification pathways can become blocked or underused which leads to the buildup of carcinogens and the formation of cancer. Increase healing in your body by removing toxins using any or all of the following detoxification strategies:

  • Exercise: Increases oxygen flow and opens up pores for detox.
  • Infrared saunas: Stimulates deep tissue for the release of carcinogens.
  • Coffee enemas: Removes toxins along the gastrointestinal tract and can also improve mood.
  • Castor oil packs: Stimulates the flow of toxins out of organs and out of the intestines.
  • Dry brushing: Stimulates lymphatic flow and glandular function.
  • Consume an anti-cancer diet: Decreases toxic burden and decreases inflammation.
  • Drink lemon or mineralizing water: Balances the body’s natural pH.

Detoxification is a requirement in the process of healing the body and treating symptoms of cancer. Receiving a massage coupled with aromatherapy oils is another excellent technique to improve lymphatic function and promote detoxification. Essential oils can boost health in cancer patients and reduce stress and anxiety.

#10. Sunlight

Getting outside in sunlight is beneficial for improving both mental and physical health

Getting outside in sunlight is beneficial for improving both mental and physical health

Removing toxins from your body in order to treat cancer is dependent on the proper functioning of your glands. Part of Dr. Budwig’s protocol mentioned earlier is to receive naturally-sourced photons from the sun. This creates a magnetic field which attracts electrons into the cells of your body.

Dr. Budwig also believed that the sun’s rays stimulate the function of glandular organs including the pancreas, salivary glands, bladder, liver, and gallbladder. Stimulating energy into your cells is not only vital to heal cancer but can improve the health of your mind as well.

Sunlight can improve your mood, create optimism, and better support your immune system’s ability to fight off foreign invaders and cancerous cells.

Getting 20-30 minutes (for fair skin) up to 1-2 hours of high-quality sun exposure (for darker skin) each day is of tremendous benefit to those looking to prevent or slow the growth of cancer. Be sure not to use sunscreen so you are able to absorb the UV rays that are critical to good health. You can use organic coconut oil on your skin before and after sun exposure in order to optimize your skin health.

#11. Beta Glucans

Beta glucans are found in the cell walls of yeast. Oats and mushrooms are also excellent sources of beta glucans

Beta glucans are found in the cell walls of yeast. Oats and mushrooms are also excellent sources of beta glucans

Beta glucans are naturally-occurring compounds found in nature but not in the human body. These complex sugar molecules supplement the immune system in order to design well-targeted attacks on cancer and other foreign agents. Beta-glucans provide immunomodulation and treat excessive inflammation due to autoimmune responses.

Some common foods which contain beta glucans are yeast, mushrooms, fermented foods, and indigestible soluble fibers including oats and barley.

Beta glucans protect the body from cancer by activating immune cells such as antibodies, natural killer cells, cytokines, T-cells, and macrophages. Together these cells coordinate attacks on tumor growth.

There are more than 1,000 published scientific articles on the health benefits of beta glucan therapy. Beta glucan supplementation has been shown in research to lower the rate of cancer cell concentration by effectively detecting and destroying their targets.

Many practitioners use 500 mg daily as a preventative measure for a healthy individual and 1000 mg, taken 2 times daily, outside of meal times as an immune strengthening agent in order to slow or prevent cancer growth.

Woman Uses Carrot Juice to Beat Stage 4 Cancer!

carrots_juice1One way cancer develops in breast tissue is through the cancer-resistant protein (BCRP/ABCG2), but there is a way to effectively block this protein, both preventing and treating already existent cancer. Actually, just one food (actually, compound) which you might already eat (or drink) has the ability to inhibit that protein from being taken up by the body and spreading cancerous cells as a ‘side population.’ It’s called falcarinol, and it occurs naturally in carrots.

This is information someone named Ann Cameron already knows. She treated Stage 4 cancer with the use of carrots, and she did it without chemotherapy, radiation, or other drastic dietary changes.

She was diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer, and later a cancer that metastasized to her lungs. She refused chemotherapy, and her oncologist told her that radiation wouldn’t help. She then read copious amounts of information on natural “cures” for cancer. So knowing that her life expectancy was short according to her prognosis, she tried out some natural alternatives.

Cameron simply juiced 5 pounds of carrots a day, amounting to about a quart a day. After eight weeks, she returned to her doctor’s office for a check up, and they were shocked.

They found no growth of the cancer, some shrinkage of the tumors, and fewer swollen lymph nodes. In just eight weeks, the growth of the tumors had stopped.

She continued to juice her carrots. By 6 months in, her tumors continued to shrink, no new tumors had developed, and she was almost cancer free. Four months later – there was no sign of cancer whatsoever.

Read: Woman Heals Broken Pelvis Using Carrot Juice

Falcarinol is likely just one of the cancer-preventing/curing elements in carrots. Dr. Max Gerson was famous for using them in his natural therapies for treating cancer patients. Carrots are also high in free-radical reducing antioxidants and vitamin A, which assists in RNA synthesis while also stimulating thyroid and adrenal function.

You can juice your carrots if you have already been diagnosed with advanced stage cancer, or you can simply add them to different recipes if you want to be more proactive in preventing the disease.

Carrots are tasty in salads, gently blanched with cinnamon and butter, or even in muffins and baked goods. Look for smooth, firm roots, and bright green tops, and always buy organic. There are 33 different carrot-loving recipes here.

How to avoid Cancer

cancer_thumbAFTER YEARS OF TELLING PEOPLE CHEMOTHERAPY IS THE ONLY WAY TO TRY AND ELIMINATE CANCER, JOHNS HOPKINS IS FINALLY STARTING TO TELL YOU THERE IS AN ALTERNATIVE WAY …

1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.

2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person’s lifetime.

3. When the person’s immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.

4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.

5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.

6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastro-intestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.

7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.

8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.

9. When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.

10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.

11. An effective way to battle cancer is to STARVE the cancer cells by not feeding it with foods it needs to multiple.
What cancer cells feed on:
a. Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells. Note: Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses but only in very small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in colour. Better alternative is Bragg’s aminos or sea salt.

b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soy milk, cancer cells will starved.

c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.

d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes t o nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells.
To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).

e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine. Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer-fighting properties. Water–best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.

12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines will become putrified and leads to more toxic buildup.

13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body’s killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.

14. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor-ssence, Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the body’s own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body’s normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.

15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor.
Anger, unforgiving and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.

16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.

Dandelion has unsuspected health benefits such as inhibiting cancer cell growth

DANDELIONSSo many people can’t wait to get rid of them once they start growing on their lawn, since dandelions are often seen as unwelcome weeds. Some of you may also recall the Rolling Stones song named “Dandelion” that came out during the summer of 1967. It was possibly the last time that dandelion was truly put into the spotlight, but new hope has now emerged that could very well make it the most wanted weed around.

The dandelion greens are closely related to the sunflower plant family, which includes over 22 000 other plant species, such as thistles and daisies. This herb had a much better reputation in the old days, regarded by most as a formidable healer. The dandelion leaves are recognized for their ability to purify the blood, help with digestion and hamper the formation of hardened crystals known as gall stones. Ongoing research is most importantly starting to show that dandelion may possibly turn out to be an exceptional alternative for chemoresistant forms of cancer.

The dandelion greens contain extremely important vitamins and minerals such as vitamin B6, thiamine, riboflavin, vitamin C, iron, calcium, potassium, folate, magnesium and manganese. They may contribute up to 535% of the suggested daily intake of vitamin K, not to mention over 110% of the recommended daily intake of vitamin A. It is believed that some of its flavonoids such as zeaxanthin and cryptoxanthin have specific healing properties. Zeaxanthin seems to provide protection for the retina when confronted by the sun’s UV rays, while cryptoxanthin can potentially defend the body against the development of mouth and lung cancer cells.

Dandelion has been shown to induce apoptosis in melanoma cells

It’s now on record that chemoresistant melanoma is the most common form of cancer for a portion of North American young adults, those aged between 25 and 29. Knowing that the immediate physical removal of melanoma cells remains to this day a standard practice for such patients, it is vital to know some researched alternatives. The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Ontario’s University of Windsor demonstrated that dandelion root extracts can efficiently induce apoptosis in human melanoma cells without causing any forms of toxicity in the process.

In the initial study, the chemical reaction created by the dandelion extracts forced cancer cells to start disintegrating within the first 48 hours of treatment and at no time were all the other healthy cells affected. Researchers realized that continuous treatments with low-dose dandelion root extracts were effective in getting rid of most cancerous cells. The initial study turned out to be so positive that the research team was given additional grants in order to continue the project.

Although further research is only in its early stages, a 72-year-old gentleman by the name of John DiCarlo doesn’t need to be convinced about what dandelion tea can do for him. Mr. DiCarlo underwent aggressive cancer treatments and had been suffering for three years before the medical team decided to send him home to spend the little time they felt he had left with his family. Thankfully for him, the cancer clinic suggested that he try dandelion tea as a last resort. Within only four months, Mr. DiCarlo was in full remission and has stayed that way ever since.
