Your Loved One Could Potentially Still Be Alive! – Help Halt Censorship

CensorshipThis radical censorship has reached a dangerous level. The fact is that the blocking of what should be freely shared information is killing the people you care about.
Have you lost a loved one to cancer?
The sad fact is that it could potentially have been prevented. If they had access to the Cancer Patient Cure information in time that Dr. Coldwell provides for free via the Internet.

The Problem…

YouTube is blocking his potentially life-saving information so that the major pharmaceutical companies (aka Big Pharma) and Chemical Medication companies make more money, profiting off of your prolonged suffering which eventually leads to death.

The Answer…
Dr. C has for years, provided free of any cost, information on how someone diagnosed with cancer can be cured fast and easily, but social media outlets like YouTube and Facebook continue to block his videos and links at every turn. Sign up for the daily newsletter at

He is also being blocked in Germany as well as the USA. The powers that be do not want this information released. Patients that can heal themselves are no longer patients, they are simply healthy people.

Medical cannabis treats cancer and boosts the immune system, say scientists after reviewing more than 100 studies

medical cannabisA recently authored review of over 100 studies has shown that cannabis really is medicinal — even if the U.S federal government refuses to recognize it. Indeed, scientific analysis has shown that the cannabinoid compounds found in marijuana can stop cancer cells from dividing and spreading — and can even cut off blood supply to tumors. These friendly plant compounds also serve to support and boost the immune system, too. The researchers say that their findings prove that cannabis can be used as a cancer treatment. Does that mean plants will finally start getting recognized for their medicinal powers? One can only hope.

While the scientists say that there is still a “need” for conventional cancer drugs, the day when plant medicines are given their due may be on the horizon. Given the slew of damaging side effects incurred at the hands of chemo and radiation treatment, patients are increasingly turning to cannabis and other medicinal plants like turmeric to get the treatment they need with less harm.

Cannabis fights cancer, according to science

A team of German researchers, led by Professor Burkhard Hinz, have concluded that cannabis compounds can fight cancer. The scientists, hailing from Rostock University Medical Centre in Germany, say that an array of cannabinoids have medicinal value. While many proponents of mainstream medicine have reluctantly agreed that cannabidiol (CBD) is of medicinal value, other compounds, like the controversial tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) remain subject to scorn.

THC is the compound in cannabis which produces a feeling of euphoria or a “high,” but research has shown that THC, CBD, and the other compounds in cannabis act in concert, and that these compounds tend to work better together than alone as single molecules.

And now, Professor Hinz and his team have shown that over 100 different studies have indicated cannabis has the ability to treat cancer.

“In this context accumulating data from preclinical models suggest that cannabinoids elicit anti-cancer effects on several levels of cancer progression,” Hinz explained.

“Clinical studies are now urgently needed to investigate the impact of cannabinoids on cancer growth and progression in patients,” he added.

While clinical research on cannabis in cancer treatment may be lacking, there are many anecdotal accounts of cancer being cured with plant medicine and nothing else.

Plant medicines heal when Big Pharma fails

While the cancer industry is loath to admit it, many patients have had success in treating their cancer at home with cannabis —  after conventional therapies like chemo and radiation failed. In 2015, it was reported a three-year-old boy in Utah had his leukemia successfully treated with cannabis.

That same year, a 33-year-old father from the U.K. reportedly revealed he had treated his “terminal” bowel cancer with cannabis oil — after chemo, radiation therapy and surgery all failed to remedy his disease. After being told by doctors that he had just 18 months to live, David Hibbitt turned to cannabis and never looked back: In January 2015, medical scans showed he was totally cancer-free.

Cannabis continues to reign king of cancer treatment in 2018, with 52-year-old Joy Smith revealing that she too treated her “incurable” cancer with medical marijuana in spring 2018. Smith was diagnosed with stomach and bowel cancer, and was told by medical professionals that she most likely had just six weeks left to live.

Many of her tumors were deemed inoperable, and chemotherapy was just making her cancer worse. So, Smith turned to cannabis as a last-ditch effort — and it worked miraculously.

Smith told reporters, “When you’re told you have six weeks to live you’ll try anything, trust me.”

“I was a bit skeptical about the oil at first as I’d never taken drugs or anything like that – but I know I would not be here today without it. I want to tell everybody.”

“Cannabis oil should be legalised for medical purposes – people are dying and the chemotherapy isn’t curing them,” the cancer survivor contended.

Seniors Are Doing It: Medical Marijuana

medical marijuanaBy Susan Boskey

Perhaps not your grandparent’s pain meds, medical marijuana is quickly becoming a favorite ‘go-to’ medicine for Baby Boomers and those ever-more elderly. Getting to this point of therapeutic use, however, has been quite the long and windy road given how the US Government stigmatized the cannabis plant back in the 1930s culminating with the Marihuana Tax Act of 1937. Sadly, the rest is American history.

American society as a whole is documented to be pretty much stuck in the dark ages when it comes to understanding the use of medical marijuana to reduce chronic pain, anxiety, stress, insomnia and depression in old age with little to no risk.

How much more evidence do we need about how pharmaceutical drugs are killing people before we wake up to natural remedies that have always been there for us?

September 2018 the University of Michigan published a study entitled: “One in four older adults prescribed a benzodiazepine goes on to risky long-term use.”[1] In The Anxiety Epidemic, I mentioned, how when benzodiazepines are combined with an opioid drug, overdoses quadrupled between 2002 and 2015. The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) states that the deadly drug, fentanyl, has been found in Xanax.

Doctors know full-well that “benzos” are for short-term use while long-term use has clearly become epidemic. In March, 2018, the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) cited: “More than 30 percent of overdoses involving opioids also involve benzodiazepines.” Yet the beat goes on as 9% of the 65 and over crowd are prescribed Xanex, Klonopin and Valium without a second thought, according to the U of M study.

One has to wonder what these providers are thinking when they make such meds refillable long-term.

In my mind much of this has to do with the fact that some Medicare programs offer steep discounts on prescription drugs to suffering seniors on a fixed budget. Natural medicine, on the other hand, is an out-of-pocket expense, and something I will address at another time.

The worm turns.

Many Baby Boomers, especially those who smoked marijuana back in the day, have decided to give medical marijuana a chance. True to their generation, they are not waiting for The Powers That Be to give them the green light. Life is short and people want to continue living active lives.

Science shares evidence of cannabis plant benefits for the older and elderly and for the potential overall reduction of pharmaceutical drug use, [2] and as several enlightened MDs in the country teach their older patients how to use medical cannabis effectively. Yet, the medical profession, by and large, trails behind scientific evidence per the federal law that keeps marijuana an illegal, ‘Schedule 1 drug of no medicinal value.’

I recall in the ’70s how marijuana was promoted as something that killed brain cells – effectively putting the fear of God in users and potential users. That said I’m assuming that if this happens at all, it only happens to those presenting with a cannabis use disorder.

Instead of the ‘killing brain cells’ myth, today, scientific cannabis studies inform us that the active molecules in cannabis have helped to increase memory in older mice [3] which they say may or may not translate to older humans. Also, science has discovered that cannabinoids, particularly CBC (not CBD) used therapeutically, may actually regenerate and restore brain cells, [4] which is additional potentially encouraging news for the senior older brain.

We already know for a fact that cannabis is an adaptogen herb with the power to enhance the endocannabinoid system (ECS) found throughout the body and tasked with the function of restoring deficiencies therein. This includes possible deficiencies of the ECS system found in the brain. As the ECS is re-established to full functioning, its primary role in balancing other physiological systems of the body translates to an increase in the direct and overall experience of wellbeing. See Cannabis Snapshotfor more details on how the ECS works.

Not surprising, the senior demographic is one of the fastest growing when it comes to accessing medical marijuana. [5] [6] It is an idea whose time has come.

Researchers Discover Treatment That Destroys Breast Cancer Tumors in 11 Days — Without Chemotherapy or Surgery

By Carolanne Wright

Contributing writer for Wake Up World

A cancer diagnosis is a terrifying prospect — one that we would surely like to avoid at all costs. Through lifestyle choices and consuming a clean diet, we vastly improve our chances of staying healthy and bypassing the disease entirely. But sometimes, regardless of the measures we take, it simply isn’t enough.

Considering 1 in 8 women (about 12%) are diagnosed with breast cancer in the US — with 252,710 new invasive cases and 63,410 non-invasive cases expected to strike in 2017 — new treatment options that hold promise cause ripples of excitement in the medical community and the public alike. If such a medical protocol doesn’t have significant side-effects, even better. But what if it allowed women diagnosed with breast cancer to skip chemotherapy, radiation and surgery altogether — and eliminated the disease in just 11 days?

This is exactly the kind of breakthrough that was presented by Professor Nigel Bundred at the 10th European Breast Cancer Conference (EBCC-10) in Amsterdam in 2016.


Anti-HER2 Therapy Shown to Dramatically Reduce Tumors

HER2 positive breast cancer is a type of cancer that has a large number of human epidermal growth factor (HER2) receptors on the surface of cancer cells, which stimulate the cells to divide and grow rapidly. Researchers recently discovered that HER2 positive breast cancer responds to targeted therapies using a combination of trastuzumab and lapatinib.

During his presentation of a clinical trial involving 257 women diagnosed with HER2-positive breast cancer, Bundred — a professor of Surgical Oncology at The University of Manchester and the University Hospital of South Manchester NHS Foundation Trust (UK), noted:

“This has ground-breaking potential because it allows us to identify a group of patients who, within 11 days, have had their tumors disappear with anti-HER2 therapy alone and who potentially may not require subsequent chemotherapy. This offers the opportunity to tailor treatment for each individual woman.”

The trial was in two parts: the first involved a control group of 130 women who were randomized to receive no pre-operative treatment, or trastuzumab (Herceptin ®) only, or lapatinib (Tyverb ®) only, for 11 days after diagnosis and before surgery.

However, evidence soon began to emerge in other trials that using a combination of lapatinib and trastuzumab to treat HER2 positive breast cancer is far more effective. In response, the research team amended the second part of their trial and involved 127 women, who were to either receive only trastuzumab, or both lapatinib and trastuzumab. Samples of tumor tissue were taken from the first biopsy of each participant, which had been performed to confirm the cancer diagnosis, and another after surgery. The samples were then analyzed to see if Ki67 protein (a marker of cell proliferation) had dropped, or if cell death (apoptosis) had risen by 30 percent or more.

Results from the second part of the trial showed a quarter of the women with HER2 positive breast cancer, who received the combination treatment for 11 days before surgery and chemotherapy, experienced a significant shrinkage of tumors — some completely disappeared. Even women with Stage 2 cancer, where the cancer had already spread to the lymph nodes, responded to the combination therapy.

Says Professor Judith Bliss, lead researcher from The Institute of Cancer Research, London, which co-led the trial, told the conference:

“These results show that we can get an early indication of pathological response within 11 days, in the absence of chemotherapy, in these patients on combination treatment. Most previous trials have only looked at the pathological response after several months of treatment.” She stressed, “Clearly these results need further confirmation, but I suspect the excitement from seeing the speed of disappearance of the tumours will mean that several trials will attempt to confirm these results.”

Additionally, Professor Bundred emphasizes the usefulness of the discovery to successfully treating HER2 positive breast cancer in the future:

“Other trials have looked at anti-HER2 therapy, with and without chemotherapy, including an assessment of the combination of trastuzumab and lapatinib, and have reported impressive response rates but these trials have only reported results after several months of therapy. Potentially, giving treatment while waiting for surgery can identify a group of patients whose disease is particularly sensitive to anti-HER2 therapy, which would allow individualization of therapy in women with HER2 positive cancers,” said Professor Bundred.

Granted, cancer is complex — this research published in the journal Nature actually found that “breast cancer represents multiple diseases” — and there are no simple solutions. Be that as it may, the results of the trial presented at the EBCC-10 hold promise for finding safe and effect treatments, which ultimately help patients avoid chemotherapy and its devastating side-effects.

10 Natural Cancer Treatments Revealed

cancerHave you ever wondered how effective natural cancer treatments can be?

Around 20 years ago, my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. This was crazy for my family at the time because my mom was a gym teacher, swim instructor and was always considered to be “healthy.”

After her diagnosis, she took the advice of her oncologists at the Cleveland Clinic and underwent a mastectomy followed by many rounds of chemotherapy. I can still remember seeing my mom’s hair fall out and thinking she had aged 10 years in the few weeks following chemo.

Praise God, after all of her treatments, she was diagnosed as being “cancer-free” and healthy. But for the next several years, she was sicker than she’d ever been in her life and struggled with constipation, candida, depression and chronic fatigue syndrome.

Then, around nine years after her first diagnosis, a terrible thing happened: She was diagnosed with cancer again. At that point, I had experience working in the natural health field, so when I flew home, we prayed together and talked about the best healthcare strategy.  She decided to pursue natural cancer treatments by focusing on diet and lifestyle changes.

My mom started following an all-natural plan that included vegetable juicing, probiotic foods, immune-boosting supplements, stress reducing techniques and prayer.  And after only four months, the tumors on her lungs had shrunk significantly and one year after that, she was again diagnosed as being “cancer-free” and healthy. It’s now been 10 years and my mom recently turned 60 years old  and she is in the best shape of her life, regularly water skiing, running and still going strong.

I want to be clear: I am not claiming that what we did with my mother is a cancer cure. But I believe these natural therapies, either used by themselves or in conjunction with conventional medical treatments, may support the body in the healing process.

I am often asked, “What exactly did your mom do?” Here are the natural cancer treatments and strategies she followed to heal her body.

Most Effective Natural Cancer Treatments 

1. The Gerson Therapy and Juicing

I see in him one of the most eminent geniuses in the history of medicine. Many of his basic ideas have been adopted without having his name connected with them. Yet, he has achieved more than seemed possible under adverse conditions. He leaves a legacy which commands attention and which will assure him his due place. Those whom he has cured will now attest to the truth of his ideas.

~ Albert Schweitzer, MD (Nobel Peace Prize Winner, 1952)

Who was Albert Schweitzer talking about?

He was referring to Dr. Max Gerson, the German-born American medical doctor who developed one of the most effective natural cancer treatments over 90 years ago. Coined the “Gerson Therapy,” Dr. Gerson helped hundreds of cancer patients activate their body’s extraordinary ability to heal itself by recommending:

  • Organic, plant-based foods
  • Raw juices
  • Coffee enemas
  • Beef liver
  • Natural supplements

In the words of the Gerson Institute:

With its whole-body approach to healing, the Gerson Therapy naturally reactivates your body’s magnificent ability to heal itself — with no damaging side effects. This a powerful, natural treatment boosts the body’s own immune system to heal cancer, arthritis, heart disease, allergies, and many other degenerative diseases. (1)

How the Gerson Therapy Works

The Gerson Therapy targets the most significant metabolic requirements in your body. How? Believe it or not, this therapy allows you to reap the nutritional benefits of consuming 15–20 pounds of organically grown fruits and vegetables each day! Here’s the breakdown:

  • The Gerson Diet – Consisting of eating only organic fruits, vegetables and sprouted ancient grains, the Gerson Diet is exceptionally rich in vitamins, minerals and enzymes. It’s also very low in fats, proteins and sodium. The meal plan advises cancer patients to drink 13 glasses of freshly prepared juice, eat three plant-based meals, and only snack on fresh fruits each day. Also, the traditional Gerson Therapy recommends consuming raw beef liver since it is the most nutrient-dense food on the planet and extremely high in vitamin B12.
  • Juicing – According to the Gerson Institute, “Fresh pressed juice from raw foods provides the easiest and most effective way of providing high quality nutrition.” The cancer-fighting protocol calls for patients to drink fresh vegetables each day, including raw carrots or apples and green-leaf juice. To preserve the nutritional content, the juice should be prepared hourly using a two-step juicer or a masticating juicer used with a separate hydraulic press. This helps prevent denaturation — when vitamins, minerals and enzymes are destroyed. (Most commercial juicers spin so fast that they heat up juice to the point they are basically pasteurized!)
  • Detoxification – The Gerson Therapy utilizes coffee enemas as the primary method of detoxing the body by increasing the parasympathetic nervous system. For cancer patients, this may take up to five enemas each day. The importance of keeping the body free of toxins is stressed by Dr. Gerson’s daughter, Charlotte:

The moment a patient is put on the full therapy, the combined effect of the food, the juices and the medication causes the immune system to attack and kill tumor tissue, besides working to flush out accumulated toxins from the body tissues. This great clearing-out procedure carries the risk of overburdening and poisoning the liver — the all-important organ of detoxification, which, in a cancer patient, is bound to be already damaged and debilitated.

  • Supplements – The Gerson Therapy recommends the following organic medicinal therapies:
    • Lugol’s solution
    • Pancreatic enzymes
    • Potassium compound
    • Thyroid hormone
    • Vitamin B12

2. The Budwig Protocol

Over the years, I have been given a lot of different advice as well, so when I heard about Dr. Budwig’s protocol I too was very skeptical, until I tried it. Numerous, independent clinical cancer studies published in major medical journals world-wide confirm Dr. Budwig’s findings. Over 40 years ago, Dr. Budwig presented clear and convincing evidence, which has been confirmed by hundreds of other related scientific research papers since, that the essential fatty acids were at the core of the answer to the cancer problem.

~ Robert E. Willner, MD, PhD (The Cancer Solution)

In 1952, Dr. Johanna Budwig was the German Government’s Senior Expert on lipids and pharmacology and was considered one of the leading global authorities on fats and oils. During her research, she discovered that many of the conventional processed fats and hydrogenated oils were destroying the membranes of our cells, and this caused diseased cells and toxicity.

Developing a specific diet — in this case, the Budwig diet protocol — to counteract this cancer-causing process, Dr. Budwig claimed to have had over a 90 percent success rate with her protocol over a 50-year period!

How the Budwig Protocol Works

When you replace deadly processed fats and oils with life-giving unsaturated/saturated fatty acids, your cells rebuild and are rejuvenated. Dr. Budwig found that consuming a mixture of cottage cheese, flaxseeds, and flaxseed oil had the best results. (2)

When cottage cheese (which is rich in sulfur protein and saturated fats) and flax (which is high in electron-rich unsaturated fatty acids) are combined this way, your body is able to absorb these vital nutrients easier and quicker.

My “Beyond Budwig” Recipe

Because of the changes in agriculture, I suggest this updated 21st century version of the Budwig Protocol:

  • 6 ounces cultured dairy (cottage cheese, goat’s milk kefir or amasai)
  • 4 tablespoons sprouted and ground chia or flax
  • 1 tablespoon flaxseed oil
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Mix all the ingredients together in bowl or blender and consume once daily.

For more details, check out the article and video I posted on the Budwig Diet Protocol for Cancer.

3. Proteolytic Enzyme Therapy

In 1906, John Beard first proposed that pancreatic proteolytic enzymes represent the body’s main defense against cancer. Beard focused on high dose porcine-based pancreatic enzyme therapy and eating a holistic diet to create an internal environment in which the body can more thoroughly heal itself. (3)

While it wasn’t researched for most of the 20th century, a few scientists picked up the concept in the 1960s. But it wasn’t until Nicholas J. Gonzalez, MD started to evaluate the concept at Cornell University Medical College in 1981 that people started to seriously consider this natural approach.

How the Pancreatic Proteolytic Enzyme Approach Works

The autonomic nervous system consists of the sympathetic (“fight” or “flight”) and autonomic (“rest” and “digest”) nervous systems. Basing his protocol off of Dr. Francis Pottenger’s research in the 1920s and 1930s, Gonzalez’s work centers on balancing these two systems, as they are suspected to be one of the major causes of cancer.

He discovered that a vegetarian diet suppresses sympathetic function, whereas the opposite is true with a meat-rich diet. So after dividing patients into different categories based of their metabolic differences, genetic and physical make-up, here are the recommendations:

  • People with epithelial tumors like lung, pancreas, colon, prostate, uterine cancers are prescribed a largely plant-based diet with minimal to no animal protein.
  • People with blood or immune based tumors like leukemia, myeloma or lymphoma are put on a high-animal protein, high-fat diet with minimal-to-moderate plant foods.

In addition, these physicians recommend taking 5 grams of proteolytic enzymes 3 times daily on an empty stomach between meals to reduce inflammation.

According to Dr. Josef Beuth, the research behind this natural cancer treatment is pretty airtight:

These studies demonstrated that systemic enzyme therapy significantly decreased tumor-induced and therapy-induced side effects and complaints such as nausea, gastrointestinal complaints, fatigue, weight loss, and restlessness and obviously stabilized the quality of life. (4)

4. Vitamin C Chelation

Chelation therapy uses chemicals or natural compounds to remove toxic metals from the body.  The word “chelate” means to grab onto something, which describes chelating agents’ ability to grab onto toxins. 

Generally, only holistic doctors and naturopaths use chelation therapy because it is not an officially “approved therapy” for most conditions in medicine today.  When it is employed in the medical system, however, it is most commonly used to remove calcium deposits from arteries.

In a study published in Free Radical Biology & Medicine, vitamin C chelation therapy was found to be highly pro-oxidant after just one hour of treatment. This benefit lasted more than 16 treatments in the absence of nutrient supplementation and even provided “beneficial long-term antioxidant effects.” (5)

Pro-oxidation isn’t always good, but in this case it is.

It was discovered that, “Pro-oxidant effects appear to be responsible for destroying tumor cells. These pro-oxidant effects may also induce endogenous antioxidant systems in normal tissues that offer protection against carcinogenic insult!”

Along with vitamin C chelation, consuming more vitamin C-rich foods may also prevent and fight cancer. (6)

5. Frankincense Essential Oil Therapy

Recommended by Dr. Budwig (especially when it comes to fighting brain tumors), frankincense essential oil is one of the most unbelievably effective natural cancer treatments. And now research trials proving this are filling medical journals. Specifically, Indian Frankincense (Boswellia serrata) has been shown clinically to being a vital treatment for:

  • Brain cancer
  • Breast cancer
  • Colon cancer
  • Pancreatic cancer
  • Prostate cancer
  • Stomach cancer (7, 8, 9, 10, 11)

According to researchers out of Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, the potential cancer-killing effects of frankincense are due in part to its ability to influence your genes to promote healing. Baylor cancer scientists emphasize that this potency makes Boswellia serrata a viable candidate for both cancer prevention and treatment!

How Frankincense Essential Oil Therapy Works

Rub frankincense essential oil on your neck three times daily. Also, drink three drops in 8 ounces of water three times daily.

6. Probiotic Foods and Supplements

Best known as “good bacteria,” probiotics are microorganisms that promote a natural balance in your intestinal microflora. The best way to include probiotics in your diet is in their most natural state, which includes raw milk products such as cheese, kefir and yogurt.

Recent research has confirmed probiotic supplementation can stop tumor growth. (12) And this makes perfect sense because 80 percent of your immune system is housed in your gut. In addition to supporting your immunity to disease, research has also shown that probiotics can improve digestive function and mineral absorption as well as aid in healing leaky gut, which all contribute to cancer prevention!

7. Sunshine and Vitamin D3

Science continues to support the fact that high levels of heart healthy, fat-soluble vitamins and minerals are key to keeping your body free of cancer. And recently, there has been considerable progress regarding the role that fat-soluble vitamin D3 plays in cancer prevention.

Research studies are mounting and a 2007 randomized placebo controlled double blind clinical trial confirms that vitamin D is one of the best natural cancer treatments around.

The study, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, is truly groundbreaking as it evaluated nearly 1,200 postmenopausal women for four years and tracked how a 1400-1500 milligram supplement of calcium compared to a calcium supplement plus 1,100 IU vitamin D3 in preventing cancer. (13)

The results were amazing. After just one year of vitamin D3-added supplementation, the risk of developing all cancer types was decreased by an astounding 77 percent! Compared to the 0 percent improvement in the placebo and calcium supplement only groups, this is truly remarkable!

The Best Way to Get Vitamin D

To best prevent breast cancer, research suggests you should supplement so that your vitamin D3 levels are at least 40-60 ng/ml and up to 80 ng/ml.

The sweet spot you’re shooting for is 50-70 ng/ml. Here’s the best way to get there:

  • Optimize vitamin D3 through 20 minutes of sun exposure everyday. This is best done by exposing 40 percent of your body to the sun between 10 am and 2 pm.
  • Take an oral supplement containing around 5,000 to 10,000 IU of vitamin D3 daily. Because they are fat-soluble, make sure that you take them with some healthy “fatty” foods containing coconut oil or a probiotic-rich drink like kefir.

It can be challenging to find a pure supplement on the market, so try to find a combination formula of astaxanthin, omega-3 fish oil and vitamin D3.

8. Turmeric and Curcumin 

While the link between curcumin and disease reversal has been widely examined, the use of this spice in relation to cancer is one of the most thoroughly researched topics.

A number of laboratory studies on cancer cells have shown that curcumin does have anticancer effects. It seems to be able to kill cancer cells and prevent more from growing. And it has the best effects on breast cancer, bowel cancer, stomach cancerand skin cancer cells.

In fact, a 2007 laboratory study showed that the combined treatment of curcumin with chemotherapy killed more bowel cancer cells than chemotherapy alone.

Other laboratory studies have also shown that curcumin interferes with cancer development, growth and spread. And researchers have reported that curcumin blocked the formation of cancer-causing enzymes in rodents.

Recently, curcumin has received a great deal of focus because of its ability to reduce tumor size and even kill cancer cells!

Bottom line: Turmeric works incredibly well to help stop cancer in its tracks and is especially effective at treating breast cancer, colon cancer and skin cancer.

9. Oxygen Therapy and Hyperbaric Chambers

All normal cells have an absolute requirement for oxygen, but cancer cells can live without oxygen — a rule without exception. Deprive a cell 35 percent of its oxygen for 48 hours and it may become cancerous.

~ Otto Warburg, MD (Nobel Prize in Physiology Winner, 1931)

Dr. Warburg made it clear that the root cause of cancer is oxygen deficiency, which creates an acidic state in the human body. He also discovered that cancer cells do not breathe oxygen and cannot survive in the presence of high levels of oxygen, as found in an alkaline state.

We’ve all heard that antioxidants kill free radicals in the body and reverse oxidative stress-causing chronic disease. This is one of the reasons why I love to use blueberries in my morning Berry Protein Smoothie! But is eating blueberries enough to cure cancer?

Probably not. That’s why supplementing with oxygen therapy and utilizing a hyperbaric chamber is highly beneficial for people seeking natural cancer treatments.

Because the air pressure inside a hyperbaric oxygen chamber is about 2.5 times greater than the normal pressure in the atmosphere, it causes your blood to carry more oxygen to the organs and tissues in your body. Known to heal everything from infected wounds to radiation injuries, many people claim that it has cured them of cancer. While it’s not quite mainstream yet, a growing numbers of hospitals have purchased some units to help their patients.

10. Prayer and Building Peace

A joyful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit dries up the bones.

~ Proverbs 17:22

In addition to the many research studies that have been conducted on the healing benefits of prayer, maintaining mental peace and a positive outlook are absolutely critical to cancer prevention and treatment.

Some people utilize Eastern techniques like practicing tai chi or simply feeling gratitude, and these are highly effective in their own right. My favorite forms of meditation, however, consist of prayer, gratitude and reading the Bible.

Whatever your preference, make sure your focus is on living a stress-free lifestyle filled with peace and joy!

Bonus Therapy: Immune-Boosting Mushrooms

Mushrooms have been used in Chinese medicine for over 4,000 years, and research regarding the cordycep and reishi species and cancer therapy has been pretty straightforward. They can:

  • Increase survival
  • Shrink tumors
  • Boost your immune system
  • Reduce radiotherapy and chemotherapy side effects like nausea and hair loss (14)

Of course, these results all depend on which extracts you choose and their concentrations. Some sources even suggest that supplementing with a complementary dose of vitamin C is also necessary.

After undergoing five chemotherapy treatments that Stacy says made him feel even worse, he decided to stop going. His family fully supports his decision.

“I want to take the natural approach,” says Stacy. “Eat just green vegetables. Everything green.”

Since then, he’s been loading up on all kinds of nutritious, organic superfoods including strawberries, beats, ginger, kale, carrots, apples, lemons, oranges, red peppers, coconut oil and apricot seeds. Just one week after beginning his new healthy eating regimen, Stacy says he has much more energy.


The family says Stacy’s doctors at Texas Children’s Hospital are unnerved by his decision, urging him to go back on chemo and to try a lower dose. However, his doctors admit that chemo wouldn’t even save his life.

“Any time we ask how much time we have, they, you can see the emotion in their eyes, it just drops, because they have no success,” said Stacy’s father. “It’s very difficult to think that I won’t have my son in six months.”

“Even if he doesn’t make it through this, I’d rather him have a nice next six months of being happy and energetic, instead of being dragged down by chemotherapy,” Stacy’s mother told FOX 26.

States often subject minors to dangerous and harmful medical treatments

While Texas currently does not have any laws forcing minors to undergo unwanted treatment recommended by the medical establishment, other states haven’t been so kind.

A hospital in Connecticut turned a 17-year-old girl and her family in to the state’s Department of Children and Families (DCF) after they stopped showing up for chemo treatments, as reported by Natural News.[2]

Cassandra Callender, who was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, said even before her diagnosis she didn’t believe in injecting poison into her body. Her doctors, likely motivated by the enormous profits generated through the cancer treatment industry, told her that she had less than two years to live if she didn’t continue chemotherapy.

If she did continue chemo, they told her that she had an 85 percent chance of being cured. Firm in her beliefs, the teenager decided to seek alternative treatment, resulting in the hospital taking action against the family.

DCF obtained custody of Cassandra, forcing her to be injected with chemotherapy drugs against her will. Eventually, Connecticut’s highest court reviewed the case, ruling that the 17-year-old was not mature enough to make her own medical decisions, failing to uphold the “mature minor doctrine,” recognized in many other states, which allows mature and competent minors to make decisions about their own medical treatment.

Cassandra has been in state custody since last December and imprisoned at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center while a staffer guards her room to prevent her from leaving. The state refuses to let her go home and has even barred her own mother from visiting her, reported NBC News in April.[3]







American Cancer Society Admits Conventional Cancer Treatments Cause More Cancer

Cancer-Printing-Press-Letter-Blocks (1)The more radiation therapy you receive, the more likely it is you’ll develop a second cancer caused by that radiation, according to a document[PDF] released by the American Cancer Society, which admits that certain organs such as the breast and thyroid are more prone to developing a second cancer.

This information is followed by a new study which found that second cancers in Americans have increased a whopping 300 percent since the 1970s, all of which are a completely new type of cancer and not a reoccurrence of an old cancer.

The study also found that first cancers have spiked 70 percent over the last 45 years, highlighting the burgeoning profitability of an industry that shows no signs of slowing down as capital gains from cancer drugs reached the $100 billion mark last year.

Radiation, which may damage DNA, is believed to be responsible for 1.5 percent of cancer in the United States, and that’s not just from cancer therapy treatments but also from other sources of radiological imaging such as mammograms and coronary artery and CT scans, the latter of which delivers 100 to 500 times the radiation of an ordinary X-ray.

“For every 1,000 people undergoing a cardiac CT scan, the radiation adds one extra case of cancer to the 420 that would normally occur,” according to The New York Times.

Children exposed to radiation much more likely to develop breast cancer

Children who have received radiation therapy as a cancer treatment are much more likely to develop breast cancer later on in life. Age at the time of radiation plays a factor as the “therapy” affects the development of other tumors including lung and thyroid cancer, gastrointestinal and stomach cancer and bone sarcoma.

If a patient receives chemotherapy and radiation, their risk for developing some type of second cancer soars even higher.

Chemotherapy is actually considered a greater risk factor in causing leukemia than radiation and has been linked to the following second cancers: myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS, the most common) acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) and acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL).

Testicular cancer has also been linked to chemotherapy treatment.

Chemotherapy increases the risk of developing hard-to-treat leukemia

The alkylating agents in chemo drugs are to blame, as they interfere with cellular DNA, sometimes causing the development of AML and MDS, which may then progress to ALL.

Some alkylating agents known to cause cancer include:

• mechlorethamine
• chlorambucil
• cyclophosphamide (cytoxan)
• melphalan,
• lomustine (CCNU)
• carmustine (BCNU)
• busulfan

The longer you receive treatment involving alkylating agents, as well as the higher the dose, the more likely you are to develop a second cancer, with the risk for leukemia rising about two years following treatment and peaking between five and ten years, after which the risk reportedly dwindles.

Second cancers caused by chemo drugs are “hard to treat and have a poor outcome”

Though not as risky, other chemotherapy drugs can also cause second cancers. Chemo drugs cisplatin and carboplatin act similarity to alkylating agents in the way they attack cancer cells, in turn also increasing certain types of leukemia that are difficult to treat and often have a poor outcome.

If cisplatin or carboplatin are given in combination with radiation, the risk for developing leukemia rises.

Topoisomerase II inhibitors, a class of chemo drugs that inhibit cells from being able to repair DNA, also contribute to the risk of developing leukemia, particularly AML, which develops much sooner (within two to three years) after treatment compared with alkylating agents.

Drugs in this class include:

• Etoposide (VP-16)
• Teniposide
• Mitoxantrone (Novantrone)

Another class of chemo drugs called anthracyclines, which are also topoisomerase II inhibitors, cause leukemia as well but aren’t as risky as the other drugs mentioned.

These include:

• Doxorubicin (Adriamycin)
• Daunorubicin
• Epirubicin (Ellence)
• Idarubicin

GcMAF: Another Suppressed Cancer Treatment?

Reports have been circulating around the natural health community of a compound known as Gc-protein derived macrophage activating factor, or GcMAF, and its remarkable effects on cancer.

One of these is a video clip (above) of an in vitro attack of macrophages, a type of immune cell, which have been treated with GcMAF against human breast cancer cells. This can be best described by the common internet meme caption of “nom nom nom,” as the clusters of cancer cells are mercilessly devoured. Fortunately for humans, research on real patients has shown that its effects are not confined to a laboratory.

In human patients, however, GcMAF is not administered alone. In this study, GcMAF is described as being complexed with oleic acid (OA), which is found in olive oil. Additionally, the OA-GcMAF is prescribed alongside a low carbohydrate, high protein diet; vitamin D3, omega-3 fatty acids, low dose aspirin, and fermented dairy products containing naturally-occurring GcMAF.

Although these patients all suffered from advanced cancers, within a few weeks, their tumor volume had decreased by an average of 25%. While some clinical results were compared to chemo in tumor-shrinking power, OA- complexed GcMAF, along with some other types of OA- complexed proteins, destroys cancer cells without any ill effects on healthy cells.

One patient discussed in research is a 56-year-old man suffering from a recurrence of metastatic squamous cell carcinoma that was “successfully” treated with chemo and radiation. Because of his cancer’s location, OA-GcMAF was administered by both a nebulizer and subcutaneous injections. Even after only 5 days of treatment, ultrasonography had shown that his tumors had shrunk by approximately one quarter. He also reported improvement in breathing, with ventilation in the apical right lobe improving.

Another patient was a 62-year-old woman with “extensive” breast cancer and no history of conventional treatment. Within one week, the diameter of the two main lymph metastases (the primary tumor was unable to be measured due to size) shrunk from 3.9 to 3.46cm.

While GcMAF has anti-proliferative, anti-metastatic abilities, oleic acid has its own anticancer properties and may assist in binding to cell membranes. Together, they are 200 times more potent than GcMAF alone in destroying cancer cells in vitro. They also increase levels of nitric oxide, which has anticancer as well as antihypertensive properties.

Other documented cases show similar results. For example, a 63-year-old woman with colon cancer that later spread to her lungs and liver experienced a reduction in her liver tumor from 13 to 6.6mL in only 2 weeks of treatment! This was once again achieved by alternating nebulization and injection of OA-GcMAF.

Another patient was a 43-year old-woman with metastatic breast cancer to the bone and liver. After 1 week of both inhaled OA-GcMAF and that injected into her breast, her primary tumor shrunk from 1.8 to 1.3 mL, which was considered representative of four other cases.

Some are less dramatic, such as that of a man in his 30\s who experienced a reduction in one of his melanoma metastases from 52.1 to 48.6mm.

Overall, the use of GcMAF as a safe treatment alternative looks promising despite frightening stories of opposition. However, more evidence, whether scientific or anecdotal, is needed for a definitive conclusion. This is partly because of the lack of instruction on how to produce anything resembling OA-GcMAF at home (unlike the more well-known cannabis oil), which may either be unfeasible or undesired by those producing it.

Study Suggests Homeopathy ‘Aided Pain of Cancer Patients Ten Fold’

homeopathy_leaf_735_350A new study has shown a dramatic improvement in cancer patients who have had to undergo chemotherapy or radiation who have used homeopathy to alter their ability to endure fatigue and pain. The study also found that recovery rates of patients improved between seven and fourteen times when compared to those who didn’t use homeopathic remedies.

It isn’t another pharmaceutical drug that has this enormous effect on cancer patients’ recovery. Homeopathy dramatically improved patients’ mental health. Of 373 cancer patients involved in the study, more than half reported “significant improvement” in their overall health, according to researchers from the Medical University of Vienna.

All patients in the study were being treated with conventional (toxic) means to deal with stage 3 and 4 cancers. They were interviewed weekly while taking homeopathic remedies about their pain, hunger, and mental health. Compared to the group that was not taking homeopathic remedies, who were asked the same interview questions while they were being treated with chemo or radiation or both, the homeopathically treated group fared much better.

“Results suggest that the global health status and subjective wellbeing of cancer patients improve significantly when adjunct classical homeopathic treatment is administered in addition to conventional therapy.”

Read: What the Homeopathy Controversy is Really All About

Improvements in the cancer patients overall health were 10 times greater in the homeopathic group over the three weeks the remedies were taken. Among the ‘alternative treatments’ that proved to be so effective were massage, shiatsu, reflexology, aromatherapy, and support groups.

“Homeopathy requires dialogue between practitioner and patient. It is patient specific. That takes time and patience, something MDs don’t have time for. Practicing homeopathy is more subtle and demanding than cookie-cutter “here’s your prescription” medical practice.

But this is also the one downside of homeopathy. It’s important to consult a good classical homeopathic practitioner to get optimum results.

But it’s hard to go too wrong with homeopathy because homeopathic solutions are without side effects and are much less expensive than pharmaceuticals. Treating an autistic child often comes to a couple of hundred dollars worth of homeopathic remedies over a year’s treatments.”

M.D. Argues Cancer Treatment and Prevention are the Same

cancer_michael_gregor_crop-263x176If you’ve noticed an odd lump in the shower that you later find is breast cancer, it is possible that it started to develop over 20 years ago. The same rogue cells that decide to become cancerous seem to be caused by the identical abnormal functioning of the body.

In fact, all epithelial cancers — breast, colon, lung, pancreas, prostate, ovarian, and others – can usually be avoided. What’s more, sometimes the treatment for cancer is the same thing as the prevention for cancer, at least according to Michael Gregor, M.D., a physician, author, and international speaker.

By the time that breast lump is finally noticeable, it has likely spent many years growing, maturing, and acquiring hundreds of new cancer cells to join in with its mission of making you sick. It has essentially been muting while you have been going about your business in a work-a-day world. But is there a way you could have stopped that lump from growing before you even realized it was the dreaded ‘C’ word?

What is called ‘early detection’ in the form of mammography, and even your doctor doing an annual breast exam, is really ‘late detection,’ not prevention. We are often considered ‘healthy’ simply because we, or our health practitioners, can’t detect cancer cells starting to grow.

Read: 8 Steps to Treating Cancer from the Inside Out

In fact, the American Cancer Society states that the signs and symptoms of cancer include fever, extreme tiredness (fatigue), or weight loss, but how many of us have a fever now and again or experience ongoing fatigue for numerous other reasons? We often ignore these ‘signs’ and go about our lives. Other symptoms can be as simple as coughing or a headache – certainly not anything to sound the alarm about.

This is the irony of cancer prevention. Those of you who eat better, incorporating cancer-fighting foods, taking herbal supplements, or incorporating lifestyle changes like exercise into your habits, are likely killing cancer cells before they can even grow. This is why the prevention of cancer is arguably the same as the ‘treatment’ or “cure” for cancer.

Since ‘early’ cancer detection all to often leads to a last-ditch effort to kill cancer with chemotherapy, surgery, or radiation, the choices we make now are likely much more effective than anything we could do once we found out we actually have cancer.
