These guidelines are only suggestions, so make sure that you do your research and make your own decisions about how to improve your chances for recovery based on more than one source of information.
Stop Eating Flour, Sugar and Processed Foods
All malignant cancer cells must have glucose to survive. This is because, unlike normal healthy cells, cancer cells must rely on the anaerobic pathway called “glycolysis” for producing energy for themselves. For this reason, malignant cancer cells are unable to survive without sugar.
Refined sugar goes into the bloodstream very quickly and is the most effective way to feed cancer cells exactly what they need to survive. Sugar promotes the growth of pleomorphic bacteris, yeast, fungus, and mold and suppresses the immune system response up to five hours
So, whenever a person with cancer eats refined sugar in any form (sugar, honey maple syrup, corn syrup, sucrose, rice syrup, barley malt; flour, cakes, cookies, candies, bottled juices, and processed foods), it fuels the cancer and prevents your immune system from fighting the cancer!
Avoid Trans Fats and Hydrogenated Oils
Hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils like margarine, shortenings and vegetable oils are altered fat substances (trans fats) which are known to be detrimental to health because they interfere with normal biochemical processes. These oils have been shown to increase cholesterol, decrease beneficial high-density lipoprotein (HDL), interfere with our liver's detoxification system, interfere with essential fatty acid function, and alter the fat composition in neurons and other cells.
Avoid Artificial Sweeteners
New ground-breaking research reveals that SPLENDA® may cause diabetes irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and cancer! This comes as a shock to many people in the diabetes and weight loss community who were told by the creators of Splenda that it would not affect their blood sugar and metabolism in any way.
Splenda has now been scientifically proven to harm your digestive system and cause insulin spikes that increase your risk of diabetes.
The ingredients that make up Splenda (sucralose) are chlorine, dextrose and maltodextrin (which are made from GMO corn). Splenda is made by replacing hydrogen atoms with chlorine atoms. Because of the large amount of chlorine you are getting when you consume sucralose, you can actually get chlorine poisoning and cellular toxicity!
Splenda Linked to Type 2 Diabetes
Does Splenda cause diabetes? A study published in the journal Diabetes Care discovered that if you are consuming Splenda, the risk of developing diabetes is profound.
According to the study, daily consumption of diet soda was associated with a 36 percent greater risk of metabolic syndrome and a 67 percent greater risk of having type 2 diabetes!
Diabetes Care published an article that evaluated this phenomenon for the first time with human subjects. Taking 17 obese individuals who were insulin sensitive, oral glucose tolerance tests were evaluated after consuming either sucralose or water 10 minutes before the test.
In addition to revealing that there was an “increase in peak plasma glucose concentrations” in these people, it was discovered that there was a 23 percent decrease in insulin sensitivity, which prevents glucose absorption in cells.
If that side effect of Splenda wasn’t bad enough, research also suggests that sucralose destroys probiotics and can lead to digestive disorders like IBS and leaky gut.
Splenda and Cancer
Can Splenda cause cancer? First, remember that chlorine is one of the its ingredients. Any animal or human that consumes chlorine on a regular basis is at risk for developing cancer. The Merk Manual and OSHA Harzardous Waste Handbook states that chlorine is carcinogenic (means causes cancer) and emergency measures should be taken when exposed via swallowing, inhaling or through the skin.
If you are only exposed to a small amount of chlorine on occasion, your body can eliminate chlorine through detoxification channels like your bowels, kidney’s and liver. But if you consume it daily, chlorine could increase cancer risk.
Also, a new study published in the journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health found that when you cook with sucralose (Splenda) at high temperatures, it generates chloropropanols — a toxin that has been linked to cancer. So make sure you never cook with Splenda because it becomes even more harmful.
Splenda vs. Stevia
An article, published in the journal Appetite, took 19 healthy lean people and 12 obese individuals between 18 and 50 years old and had them complete three tests in which they consumed stevia, sucrose (table sugar) or aspartame before eating lunch and dinner.
It’s no surprise that when these people consumed stevia, they didn’t feel hungry and overeat during their meals like they did when they consumed sucrose.
Additionally, the researchers also reported that, “Stevia significantly reduced post-meal glucose levels compared to those who consumed sugar or aspartame.
In other words, they discovered that stevia literally helps normalize blood sugar levels and reduce your risk for diabetes compared to the blood sugar spike people experience when they drink sugary or diet beverages before, during or after meals.
Please Share This With Your Family & Friends: Many of our friends and family have been duped to believe that artificial sweeteners like SPLENDA® are the “savior” to prevent diabetes and obesity. But nothing is further from the truth. The health risks associated with these toxins are veritably limitless and as research continues to investigate the details, more negative effects are surfacing!
Avoid Animal Meat
Most animal meat, especially beef and pork, contain antibiotics, growth hormones and other chemicals that are carcinogenic. They contain the fungi Aspergillus ochraceus which produces the mycotoxin Ochratoxin A associated with many different documented cancers.
If you do eat any meat, make sure that it's free range to avoid the antibiotics, growth hormones and other toxins. Even still, avoid meat intake during the first several months of recovery; and, then, limit your intake to no more than once or twice a week.
Avoid Cow’s Milk and Most Dairy
Though there is no complete agreement on this in the alternative cancer treatment field, a number of health experts suggest avoiding dairy products made from cow’s milk if you have cancer. The exception is if you are on the Flaxseed Oil/Cottage Cheese protocol, and in that case you should be using low fat organic rBGH-free cottage cheese in small amounts mixed well with organic flaxseed oil every day. The sulfur-based proteins in the cottage cheese combine with the essential fatty acids in the flaxseed oil to help normalize cancer cells.
Dairy products including milk, cheese, yogurt, cottage cheese, ice-cream, butter, etc. are fully colonized with fungi and contain the fungus Aspergillus ochraceus which produces the mycotoxin Ochratoxin A. These foods are also high in sugar which promotes the production of pleomorphic bacteria, yeast, and fungus.
Avoid All GMO Foods
Most soy and corn grown in the U.S. is now genetically modified and GMO foods have been linked to all kinds of health problems, including cancer. Corn and all associated products contain over 25 different strains of fungus, all disease causing including cancer.
Most canola oil is also genetically modified, along with other food items. Your best chances for a full recovery will be aided by avoiding all genetically modified foods. If you’d like more details as to the history of this issue and why these types of foods are so dangerous, just google on GMO foods.
Eat Lots of Vegetables and Some Fruits
Eating lots of vegetables is one of the best ways to nourish the normal cells of your body and not feed too much sugar to the cancer cells. If you have trouble with eating a lot of vegetables, then, try raw juicing and green smoothies.
Vegetables such as Brussels sprouts, broccoli, and cabbage (cruciferous vegetables) contain powerful anti-cancer phytonutrients such as sulforaphane, indole-3-carbinol (I3C), and Diindolylmethane (DIM). And other vegetables such as onions and garlic (Allium family) contain sulfur, which help to weaken cancer cells.
Some mushrooms have anti-cancer benefits because they contain a large amount of beta glucan, a polysaccharide carbohydrate that builds the ability of macrophages in the blood to destroy cancer cells. Examples are Agaricus blazei murril, maitake, shitake, and reishi. These are powerful anti-tumor mushrooms.
But, keep in mind that mushrooms are not a vegetable but rather a fungal growth. So mushrooms can disperse their seed-like spores of the fungus throughout the blood and tissues. For example some edible mushrooms can induce bladder cancer.
Eat super seeds such apple, apricot, chia, flax, grape, and/or hemp -- but, amke certain that they are organic.
Apricot seeds contain an anti-cancer compound called amagdylin, which kills cancer cells before they develop in a full-blown tumor. A primitive tribe, the Hunzas, were known to consume large amounts of apricot seed kernels and had no incidence of cancer -- ever. And they had long, healthy life spans. Laetrile (also known as Vitamin B17) was created by a Dr. Krebb, who extracted the amagdylin from the soft apricot kernels, purifying it and putting it into a concentrated form.
Other foods that provide a similar benefit are apple seeds and raw bitter almonds.
Chia seeds are rich in omega-3 oils, protein, anti-oxidants, calcium, and fiber; and, may reduce CRP levels. They are great for thickening smoothies.
Flaxseed (freshly ground) and flax hulls are great for smoothies because they contain lignans (super anti-oxidants that help fight cancer) plus a lot of fiber that can reduce your risk of heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Cold-pressed organic flax oil is the best source of parent omega-3s. Flax can reduce hypertension and its lignans reduce oxidized LDL, an independent risk factor for heart disease.
Hemp seed is one of the few sources of stearidonic acid, an intermediate omega-3 fat in the conversion pathway from ALA to EPA with a knack for increasing the EPA content of red blood cells in humans. Hemp seeds contain a host of bioactive compounds with potentially beneficial health effects (PDF), including cannabidiol, beta-sitosterol, methyl-salicylate, tocopherols, and unique antioxidants.
Note: Avoid the peanut, because it can contain a carcinogenic mold called aflatoxin, and they are notorious for being one of the most pesticide-contaminated crops. Instead of peanut butter, eat organic nut butters like almond butter and walnut butter.
Tip 1: Buy a bunch of your favorite raw organic nuts and seeds and use Ziploc bags to create your own personalized trail mixes.
Tip 2: If you want to maximize the nutrients you get from nuts, soak them in distilled or purified water overnight. This helps neutralize enzyme inhibitors and phytic acid both of which may affect digestion and absorption of the nutrients in seeds and nuts. It can also help reduce the amount of pesticides on them if they are not organically grown.
Avoid Tap Water
Tap water contains cancer-causing agents including antibiotics, hormones, pesticides, fluoride, chloride, and many other contaminants. Unfortunately, most bottled waters are just as bad.
Instead get your own water filter, but, make sure that it can remove all of these contaminants, especially the fluoride and other carcinogenic chemicals.
It’s a sad fact that tap water from municipal water sources throughout the United States is increasingly becoming a health hazard. Part of the reason is due to pesticides and other toxic runoff from “factory farms” that produce the lion’s share of our nation’s food supply. Additionally, toxic residues of pharmaceutical drugs are increasingly being found in municipal tap water due to our nation’s dependence on such drugs. Frightening as these facts are, they are only the tip of the proverbial iceberg!
Any and all chemicals generated by human activity can and will find their way into water supplies. The types and quantities of carcinogens present in drinking water at the point of consumption will differ depending on whether they result from contamination of the source water, arise as a consequence of treatment processes, or enter as the water is conveyed to the user.
Source-water contaminants of concern include arsenic, asbestos, radon, agricultural chemicals, and hazardous waste. Of these, the strongest evidence for a cancer risk involves arsenic, which is linked to cancers of the liver, lung, bladder, and kidney.
The use of chlorine for water treatment to reduce the risk of infectious disease may account for a substantial portion of the cancer risk associated with drinking water. The by-products of chlorination are associated with increased risk of bladder and rectal cancer, possibly accounting for 5000 cases of bladder cancer and 8000 cases of rectal cancer per year in the United States. Fluoridation of water has received great scrutiny but appears to pose less of a cancer risk.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the tap water consumed by tens of millions of Americans likely contains hazardous levels of lead. In addition, 25% of all public water systems in the U.S. have been found to have violated federal standards for tap water.
Overall, municipal tap water is likely to contain at least one of the following cancer-causing contaminants, and often many of them in combination:
Synthetic chemicals (benzene, trichloroethylene, etc)
Industrial waste by-products
Another source of polluted tap water can be the water lines into your home. Unless your home has new copper water lines, lead and other heavy metals can leach out of the older water pipes and plumbing to get into your water supply. These heavy metals, when consumed, accumulate in body tissues where, over time, they lead to a condition of chronic toxicity which, in turn, interferes with your body’s ability to detoxify itself and fight off disease, including cancer.
It’s also important to realize that drinking tap water is not the only risk to your health. It can also affect you in your bath and shower. In fact, approximately 70% of the cancer-causing toxins found in tap water enter the body through the skin during bathing and showering.
Further research is needed to identify and quantify risks posed by contaminants from drinking-water distribution pipes, linings, joints, and fixtures and by biologically active micropollutants, such as microbial agents. We need more cost-effective methods for monitoring drinking-water quality and further research on interventions to minimize cancer risks from drinking water.
Juicing and Green Smoothies
Drink raw juices at least 4 to 6 times a day, if possible. This is the quickest and easiest way to get critical nutrients into your cells to fight the cancer. Start with lots of organic carrots; and, then, add cruciferous and other green vegetables along with sulfur foods such as garlic, onions and leeks.
Use organic herbs such as ginger, turmeric and cayenne. Add high-quality whey protein and make green smoothies, especially if you don't feel like eating solid foods.
If you don't like to juice or if you tired of juicing, then, you can order frozen wheatgrass and have fresh wheatgrass within a minute! Just make sure that you're ordering from a reputable company.
Start drinking green tea (or white tea) every day. Green tea has epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) and catechins, as tough on cancer cells as they are on the tongue to pronounce. EGCG retards cancer growth; and stomach and lung cancer rates in Japan would likely be even higher considering all the cancer-promoting salty food and tobacco there.
Note that in the United States it is extremely difficult to get real green tea. What you are buying is green tea drink (sugar, water, and someone whispering the words "green tea" over the bottle) or green tea mix (a blend of teas to ease that natural bitterness of green tea). The most potent green tea comes from Japan; and Asian supermarkets carry many varieties, with the best brands being in boxes with letters you can't read. Note also that black teas lose healthy catechins in the fermentation process; and decaffeinated teas lose catechins in the washing process.
Because of how cancer and chemotherapy weaken your immune system, one of the key elements of a successful wellness recovery plan is to detox your liver, kidneys and colon to remove the toxins from the chemotherapy and the toxins/carcinogens from the foods that you've been eating for years.
In addition, it is imperative to detox your lymphatic system to help strengthen your immune system so that it can fight the cancer.
Eating raw vegetables and raw juicing will help with cleansing and detoxifying your liver and kidneys. But, given the large amount of toxins in your body, you may need to go through a comprehensive cleanse/detoxification process to help purge your liver, kidneys and colon of the various toxins.
Other detox methods include: eating organic, using organc herbs, colonic hydrotherapy, eating more fiber, exercise, enemas, Epsom salt baths, and using organic body products and cosmetics.
Note 1: Avoiding flour, sugar, trans fats, processed foods, dairy and animal meat helps to detox your body because you're no longer putting more toxins into your body that your liver, colon, kidneys have to handle.
Note 2: Relaxing, calming your mind and avoiding negative-thinking people are ways to "detox"" your mind and stabilize yourself emotionally. Calm your mind with yoga and meditation to reduce cortisol levels significantly (cortisol is linked to cancer risk). Relax by having a warm bath or by reading a funny book or watching a funny film. Find a hands-on healer; have a massage.
Exercise 20-30 minutes every day to help with oxygen intake and detox (lymphatic system). If you don't like to exercise, go for a daily walk with a friend or visit the mall. Once you're comfortable with walking, add some weight resistance/strength training on alternate days for 15 to 20 minutes.
Once you've implemented a nutritional program, then, you can add some supplementation, e.g. turmeric, ginger, cayenne, CoQ10, lipoic acid, whey protein, Vitamin D3. But, be very careful, since most supplements are synthetic and may contain lead and other heavy metals.
Tobacco contains yeasts and sugars which ferment the tobacco into the form which reaches the human blood and tissues causing disbiosis of the blood and tissues leading to every degenerative disease known including cancer, diabetes, arthritis, etc.
Alcohol is the second leading cause of cancer, right behind tobacco use. Excessive drinking is known to cause heart failure, stroke, and sudden death; and, is linked to cancers of the mouth, esophagus, liver, colon, rectum, and breast.
Alternative Cancer Protocol
Do your own research and find an alternative cancer treatment protocol that you're comfortable with and has online support of the protocol. Also, find people who have used the protocol and discuss with them what they liked and disliked about the protocol and the support.
Remember: Just eating a better diet is not sufficient as an alternative treatment strategy for most cancers.
Get tested frequently to monitor your progress. Also, do your own home testing for things like blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar, A1C, weight, etc.
Join a local support group and also join one or more online cancer support groups or forums. Connecting with other people who are struggling or have struggled with your disease can be educational and therapeutic. Learn about the successes and failures of other cancer patients to help you on your journey.
Work with a naturopathic doctor, holistic practitioner and/or an expert in the field of cancer alternative treatment -- especially for the specific protocol that you plan to use.
Education is critical. There is nothing more empowering than learning about your disease, how it works and how it can be treated with and without drugs. This may seem daunting, but, once you get started, you'll gain invaluable insights into your disease, your doctors, Big Pharma, and so much more.
Keep good records and notes of your daily activities, drug dosages, how you feel, what you eat, etc. Keeping track of your daily activities will take some of the load off of you mentally.
In addition, always ask your doctor's admin/secretary for a copy of your lab work after your doctor's appointment. This will be important, especially when you're working with other people in the healthcare industry.
Be Wary of Needle Biopsies
Unfortunately, needle biopsies are integral to diagnosing any unusual mass in mainstream medicine. Also, if you plan to do chemotherapy, a needle biopsy is required because oncologists need to know exactly what type of cancer cell you have in order to know which type of chemo to prescribe.
The primary problem with a needle biopsy is when the needle is drawn back out of a mass, if it is cancer, some malignant cells may escape along with the needle on the way out. This allows them to move into other areas of the body beyond the original cancer site.
An oncologist at the Cancer Control Convention in California strongly warned people about the dangers of needle biopsies. He showed a slide from a scan that was taken of a woman’s breast. She’d had a localized breast tumor (not yet metastasized) when the biopsy was first done. This scan, however, which was taken a while after the needle biopsy had been performed, showed cancer growing in a straight line between the tumor and the surface of her skin. It was growing right along the pathway of the needle that was pulled out of her! This meant that the needle biopsy procedure itself caused the mass to NOT be localized anymore, making the cancer suddenly more difficult to completely remove surgically via lumpectomy. There other accounts about the same thing happening to men with prostate cancer and it probably happens to people with other types of cancer as well who are subjected to needle biopsies.
Avoid Hormone-Blocking Drugs
Testosterone-blocking drugs (such as Lupron or Casodex) for men with prostate cancer tend to be ineffective and dangerous. A careful evaluation of scientific research showed that blocking testosterone is not at all helpful and that doing so can actually promote the growth and spread of prostate cancer! They can also cause life-threatening side effects. And there is some evidence that being on a testosterone-blocking drug may interfere with the effectiveness of alternative methods for cancer as well. There are a lot of misunderstandings in conventional medicine about treating prostate cancer, so do your research.
Estrogen-blocking drugs (such as Tamoxifen or Femara) for women with breast cancer, have no proven effectiveness for increasing long term cure rates and comes with devastating and life-threatening side effects including the possibility that it can cause a stroke, blindness, or even a secondary, more aggressive cancer in women taking it! And, as with men on testosterone-blocking drugs, women on an estrogen-blocking drug may not respond as well to alternative treatments that might otherwise give them at least a chance for full recovery.
There are numerous large-scale studies that have proven mammography is not only extremely ineffective at detecting cancer, resulting in many false positives as well as false negatives, but also can cause cancer or promote the spread of it if you have it! Though no early detection test is perfect, thermography (in the form of breast thermograms) is much more accurate than mammography, and perfectly safe and non-invasive. Any woman interested in thermography can search the Internet for explanations about how it works and to find a clinic near them that administers it.
Don’t Expect that Simply Alkalizing Your Body Will Make Your Cancer Go Away
A common misconception is that all a cancer patient has to do is make their body optimally alkaline through diet and health food store supplements and their cancer will go away. This, of course, is based on Nobel Prize winner Dr. Otto Warburg’s work with cancer cells. He proved that cancer cells cannot thrive in an optimally alkaline environment. This is absolutely true, but unfortunately many people have misunderstood how to use that information. The work that Dr. Warburg did involved cancer cells in vitro (such as in petri dishes) and they were small numbers of cells in an artificially alkalized environment.
When a person has malignant tumors in vivo (meaning in their body) they are dealing with many millions of cancer cells all in one place, maybe hundreds of millions, and each of those cells is producing lactic acid as a by-product of the anaerobic cell respiration that malignant cells use to produce energy for themselves. This lactic acid builds up around tumors and creates its own little acidic environment around the cancer. So, a healthy person can use optimum alkalizing techniques to help themselves avoid a cancer diagnosis, but once they have active cancer, most alkalizing techniques may simply alkalize the rest of their body but not be able to effectively alkalize the areas around the tumors.
For the most part, since the alkalizing diet helps to nourish the normal cells, it's important to have a strategy that specifically targets how to kill the cancer cells.
Don’t Wait Until All Conventional Treatment Has Failed To Try an Alternative Approach.
A common misconception is that alternative treatments are okay for cancers caught early, but for late-stage or metastasized cancer, conventional medicine is better because it’s more powerful. Just the opposite is true!
Unfortunately, approximately 75 percent of all people diagnosed with cancer in the U.S. already have metastasized cancer by the time they are first diagnosed. Once cancer has metastasized, most cancer patients have virtually no chance for a cure through conventional treatment and alternative medicine may be their only hope at that point. Of course there are no guarantees for alternative medicine curing late-stage cancer, but a person’s chances are at least a lot better with a strong alternative approach that has already proven to have a significant cure-rate, than with conventional methods.
Also, conventional treatments are notoriously toxic and the longer a person uses these toxic treatments, the more their chances for a long-term cure go down. Chemotherapy, radiation, and even hormone-blocking drugs can cause serious damage and changes to the body. This may then make it more difficult for a person to recover if they later choose to stop conventional treatment and try something else.
So, when someone goes with conventional medicine first and if that doesn’t work, then tries something alternative, the chance of success will be much smaller because the non-toxic alternative approach has to overcome the cancer and the damage caused by the conventional medicine approach (e.g. chemotherapy). A person may be so damaged by that time, due to either the cancer spreading further or the toxicity of the conventional treatments, that they may no longer have any chance for full recovery at that point. It is much better to know all your options in advance and start on a good non-toxic approach earlier rather than later, especially if your cancer has already metastasized.
Do Your Homework on the Alternative Approach You Have Chosen
Any person with cancer who decides to use an alternative non-toxic approach must do their homework and research about the treatment they have chosen in order to achieve optimum results. Read as much as you can about the approach, talk to consultants on that approach if there are any, or speak with other cancer survivors who used the approach successfully already. This is less critical if you are working with a doctor who is administering the alternative approach to you, but many people using alternative therapies are self-administering the method and basically treating themselves.
Even though some of the cancer successes reported on Internet and from other sources may sound like “miracle cures,” the reality is that alternative approaches are not magic, so don’t look at them that way and think all you have to do is take the basic recommended dose and not look into it anymore. Knowing how to use your chosen alternative approach for optimum results may make the difference between recovering completely or not.
Rely on More Than One Diagnostic Tool to Assess Your Progress
Use as many diagnostic tools as you can, including X-rays, MRIs, CT scans and PET scans, to assess the status of your cancer. Scans should be considered only one of several tools and may not always be accurate.
Dr. Mercola has written an article about the inherent inaccuracy of CT scans for lung cancer, for instance. In it, he states, “It’s important to understand that many medical procedures are not an exact science, and this includes CT scans used to measure cancer growth. In the case of CT scans for lung cancer, this new study showed that radiologists reviewing images of the same patient taken just minutes apart found substantial ‘changes’ in the tumors, in some cases noting they had gotten up to 31 percent bigger or 23 percent smaller.
In addition, all “alternative tests” are not perfect. For example, alternative tests such as the AMAS blood test and the HCG urine test are certainly better than anything conventional medicine has for detecting cancer early, but they are not perfectly accurate at assessing a patient’s progress after they have been treating their cancer for a while. Once again, use any of these tests as one of the tools in your diagnostic tool kit, but don’t rely completely on only one diagnostic test for verification of how you are doing, and use common sense whenever possible.
Keep Taking an Alternative Approach Long After the “All Clear” Remission Point
When it comes to the world of alternative medicine for cancer, one of the worst things that you can do is to stop your alternative approach too soon. It is heartbreaking to get onto a good alternative approach and go into complete remission, then stop the treatment too soon, before having gotten rid of all their cancer.
Please understand that remission just means all visible signs of cancer are gone and diagnostic tests cannot detect any cancer. Unfortunately, oncologists tend to mislead cancer patients into thinking that remission means they are cancer-free. They don’t tell their patients that up to about 10 million cancer cells can fit on the head of a pin! That’s how microscopically small they are, just like any other cell in the body. Such a small dot, which could be millions of cancer cells, will be impossible to see on any scan and the patient would not be showing any symptoms. So it is critical that people stay on the alternative approach that is working for them long after the remission point to be sure they get rid of every last cancer cell.
Note: This is possible with a non-toxic approach, but not possible with conventional methods because conventional treatments are too toxic to keep taking long after remission. As an example, cancer patients using Protocel are often advised to keep taking the Protocel for at a least a full year after they have reached the “all-clear” remission point. If the alternative approach that brought you to remission is too difficult or too expensive for you to continue, then at least switch to another non-toxic method that is easier for you after the remission point has been reached.
Unfortunately a lot of people who bring themselves into remission with an alternative approach get a false sense of security and start to think they are invincible and “done” with fighting cancer. They stop their alternative approach as soon as their diagnostic scans or other tests can’t find any cancer. Often this is understandably due to the desire to get back to a normal life again. Then the person finds out a year or two later that they did not get every last cancer cell in the first go-around and their cancer is now back and has spread, possibly at this point into their bones, brain or liver. This does not mean the alternative method they used did not work. It just means that they did not stay on it long enough to get rid of every last cancer cell. Make sure that you do not fall prey to this mistake!
