Here’s an email from “Dr. Loretta Lanphier”

It’s more complex than just the statement “sugar feeds cancer”. Below are
two fairly good explanations. After that some quotes by Lothar Hirneise.
Hope this helps.

Sugar and Cancer
http://www.mercola. com/2000/ oct/8/sugar_ cancer.htm

“A tumour is the body’s solution to a problem. A tumour forms because
someone is no longer producing adrenaline, which is needed to break down
sugar. An excess of sugar is dangerous, so the body produces tumours.
Tumours ferment – burn – sugar. They also use a lot of energy – sugar – due
to the fast division of cells. That’s why some tumours grow so fast. Cancer
function like liver cells, only much more efficiently. So the tumour
helps you to rid your body of poisons. Without the tumour you would be
really ill. I always tell people: ‘The tumour is not your problem. A tumour
is an incredibly ingenious solution on the part of the body.’ When you get
healthy, the tumour disappears on its own, which is why you shouldn’t
immediately operate to remove it. First detoxify yourself. If the tumour
continues to grow – which is almost never the case – you can always operate

Cancer is not a problem. Cancer is a solution.

Cancer cannot exist without stress. One hundred percent impossible! There
are a lot of debates on types of stress – physical and psychological – but
for a cell it doesn’t matter where the stress comes from. Every cancer
patient has a sugar problem. Insulin transports sugar to cells. Adrenaline –
and to a lesser extent cortisol and glucagon – takes it away. Everyone
thinks that if you are under a lot of stress, you have an excess of
adrenaline. This is true, but it’s only the beginning. Long-term stress
results in adrenaline shortages. That’s what you see in cancer patients. So
the cell is full of sugar that is not broken down. These cells die. Sugar is
a poison; too much of it destroys your arteries, your kidneys and your
bones. The body combats that danger by creating tumours – as a last resort
for getting rid of the sugar surplus.

Cancer and sugar (1)

From The April 2000 Issue of Nutrition Science News Features
Cancer’s Sweet Tooth by Patrick Quillin, PHD, RD, CNS

http://www.newhope. com/nutritionsci encenews/ NSN_backs/ Apr_00/cancer. cfm

During the last 10 years I have worked with more than 500 cancer patients as director of nutrition for Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Tulsa, Okla. It puzzles me why the simple concept “sugar feeds cancer” can be so dramatically overlooked as part of a comprehensive cancer treatment plan.
Of the 4 million cancer patients being treated in America today, hardly any are offered any scientifically guided nutrition therapy beyond being told to “just eat good foods.” Most patients I work with arrive with a complete lack of nutritional advice. I believe many cancer patients would have a major improvement in their outcome if they controlled the supply of cancer’s preferred fuel, glucose. By slowing the cancer’s growth, patients allow their immune systems and medical debulking therapies—chemothera py, radiation and surgery to reduce the bulk of the tumor mass—to catch up to the disease. Controlling one’s blood-glucose levels through diet, supplements, exercise, meditation and prescription drugs when necessary can be one of the most crucial components to a cancer recovery program. The sound bite—sugar feeds cancer—is simple. The explanation is a little more complex.
The 1931 Nobel laureate in medicine, German Otto Warburg, Ph.D., first discovered that cancer cells have a fundamentally different energy metabolism compared to healthy cells. The crux of his Nobel thesis was that malignant tumors frequently exhibit an increase in anaerobic glycolysis—a process whereby glucose is used as a fuel by cancer cells with lactic acid as an anaerobic byproduct—compared to normal tissues.1 The large amount of lactic acid produced by this fermentation of glucose from cancer cells is then transported to the liver. This conversion of glucose to lactate generates a lower, more acidic pH in cancerous tissues as well as overall physical fatigue from lactic acid buildup.2,3 Thus, larger tumors tend to exhibit a more acidic pH.4
This inefficient pathway for energy metabolism yields only 2 moles of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) energy per mole of glucose, compared to 38 moles of ATP in the complete aerobic oxidation of glucose. By extracting only about 5 percent (2 vs. 38 moles of ATP) of the available energy in the food supply and the body’s calorie stores, the cancer is “wasting” energy, and the patient becomes tired and undernourished. This vicious cycle increases body wasting.5 It is one reason why 40 percent of cancer patients die from malnutrition, or cachexia.6
Hence, cancer therapies should encompass regulating blood-glucose levels via diet, supplements, non-oral solutions for cachectic patients who lose their appetite, medication, exercise, gradual weight loss and stress reduction. Professional guidance and patient self-discipline are crucial at this point in the cancer process. The quest is not to eliminate sugars or carbohydrates from the diet but rather to control blood glucose within a narrow range to help starve the cancer and bolster immune function.
The glycemic index is a measure of how a given food affects blood-glucose levels, with each food assigned a numbered rating. The lower the rating, the slower the digestion and absorption process, which provides a healthier, more gradual infusion of sugars into the bloodstream. Conversely, a high rating means blood-glucose levels are increased quickly, which stimulates the pancreas to secrete insulin to drop blood-sugar levels. This rapid fluctuation of blood-sugar levels is unhealthy because of the stress it places on the body (see glycemic index chart).
Sugar in the Body and Diet
Sugar is a generic term used to identify simple carbohydrates, which includes monosaccharides such as fructose, glucose and galactose; and disaccharides such as maltose and sucrose (white table sugar). Think of these sugars as different-shaped bricks in a wall. When fructose is the primary monosaccharide brick in the wall, the glycemic index registers as healthier, since this simple sugar is slowly absorbed in the gut, then converted to glucose in the liver. This makes for “time-release foods,” which offer a more gradual rise and fall in blood-glucose levels. If glucose is the primary monosaccharide brick in the wall, the glycemic index will be higher and less healthy for the individual. As the brick wall is torn apart in digestion, the glucose is pumped across the intestinal wall directly into the bloodstream, rapidly raising blood-glucose levels. In other words, there is a “window of efficacy” for glucose in the blood: levels too low make one feel lethargic and can create
clinical hypoglycemia; levels too high start creating the rippling effect of diabetic health problems.
The 1997 American Diabetes Association blood-glucose standards consider 126 mg glucose/dL blood or greater to be diabetic; 111­125 mg/dL is impaired glucose tolerance and less than 110 mg/dL is considered normal. Meanwhile, the Paleolithic diet of our ancestors, which consisted of lean meats, vegetables and small amounts of whole grains, nuts, seeds and fruits, is estimated to have generated blood glucose levels between 60 and 90 mg/dL.7 Obviously, today’s high-sugar diets are having unhealthy effects as far as blood-sugar is concerned. Excess blood glucose may initiate yeast overgrowth, blood vessel deterioration, heart disease and other health conditions.8
Understanding and using the glycemic index is an important aspect of diet modification for cancer patients. However, there is also evidence that sugars may feed cancer more efficiently than starches (comprised of long chains of simple sugars), making the index slightly misleading. A study of rats fed diets with equal calories from sugars and starches, for example, found the animals on the high-sugar diet developed more cases of breast cancer.9 The glycemic index is a useful tool in guiding the cancer patient toward a healthier diet, but it is not infallible. By using the glycemic index alone, one could be led to thinking a cup of white sugar is healthier than a baked potato. This is because the glycemic index rating of a sugary food may be lower than that of a starchy food. To be safe, I recommend less fruit, more vegetables, and little to no refined sugars in the diet of cancer patients.
What the Literature Says
A mouse model of human breast cancer demonstrated that tumors are sensitive to blood-glucose levels. Sixty-eight mice were injected with an aggressive strain of breast cancer, then fed diets to induce either high blood-sugar (hyperglycemia) , normoglycemia or low blood-sugar (hypoglycemia) . There was a dose-dependent response in which the lower the blood glucose, the greater the survival rate. After 70 days, 8 of 24 hyperglycemic mice survived compared to 16 of 24 normoglycemic and 19 of 20 hypoglycemic. 10 This suggests that regulating sugar intake is key to slowing breast tumor growth (see chart).
In a human study, 10 healthy people were assessed for fasting blood-glucose levels and the phagocytic index of neutrophils, which measures immune-cell ability to envelop and destroy invaders such as cancer. Eating 100 g carbohydrates from glucose, sucrose, honey and orange juice all significantly decreased the capacity of neutrophils to engulf bacteria. Starch did not have this effect.11
A four-year study at the National Institute of Public Health and Environmental Protection in the Netherlands compared 111 biliary tract cancer patients with 480 controls. Cancer risk associated with the intake of sugars, independent of other energy sources, more than doubled for the cancer patients.12 Furthermore, an epidemiological study in 21 modern countries that keep track of morbidity and mortality (Europe, North America, Japan and others) revealed that sugar intake is a strong risk factor that contributes to higher breast cancer rates, particularly in older women.13
Limiting sugar consumption may not be the only line of defense. In fact, an interesting botanical extract from the avocado plant (Persea americana) is showing promise as a new cancer adjunct. When a purified avocado extract called mannoheptulose was added to a number of tumor cell lines tested in vitro by researchers in the Department of Biochemistry at Oxford University in Britain, they found it inhibited tumor cell glucose uptake by 25 to 75 percent, and it inhibited the enzyme glucokinase responsible for glycolysis. It also inhibited the growth rate of the cultured tumor cell lines. The same researchers gave lab animals a 1.7 mg/g body weight dose of mannoheptulose for five days; it reduced tumors by 65 to 79 percent.14 Based on these studies, there is good reason to believe that avocado extract could help cancer patients by limiting glucose to the tumor cells.
Since cancer cells derive most of their energy from anaerobic glycolysis, Joseph Gold, M.D., director of the Syracuse (N.Y.) Cancer Research Institute and former U.S. Air Force research physician, surmised that a chemical called hydrazine sulfate, used in rocket fuel, could inhibit the excessive gluconeogenesis (making sugar from amino acids) that occurs in cachectic cancer patients. Gold’s work demonstrated hydrazine sulfate’s ability to slow and reverse cachexia in advanced cancer patients. A placebo-controlled trial followed 101 cancer patients taking either 6 mg hydrazine sulfate three times/day or placebo. After one month, 83 percent of hydrazine sulfate patients increased their weight, compared to 53 percent on placebo.15 A similar study by the same principal researchers, partly funded by the National Cancer Institute in Bethesda, Md., followed 65 patients. Those who took hydrazine sulfate and were in good physical condition before the study began lived an average
of 17 weeks longer.16
In 1990, I called the major cancer hospitals in the country looking for some information on the crucial role of total parenteral nutrition (TPN) in cancer patients. Some 40 percent of cancer patients die from cachexia.5 Yet many starving cancer patients are offered either no nutritional support or the standard TPN solution developed for intensive care units. The solution provides 70 percent of the calories going into the bloodstream in the form of glucose. All too often, I believe, these high-glucose solutions for cachectic cancer patients do not help as much as would TPN solutions with lower levels of glucose and higher levels of amino acids and lipids. These solutions would allow the patient to build strength and would not feed the tumor.17
The medical establishment may be missing the connection between sugar and its role in tumorigenesis. Consider the million-dollar positive emission tomography device, or PET scan, regarded as one of the ultimate cancer-detection tools. PET scans use radioactively labeled glucose to detect sugar-hungry tumor cells. PET scans are used to plot the progress of cancer patients and to assess whether present protocols are effective.18
In Europe, the “sugar feeds cancer” concept is so well accepted that oncologists, or cancer doctors, use the Systemic Cancer Multistep Therapy (SCMT) protocol. Conceived by Manfred von Ardenne in Germany in 1965, SCMT entails injecting patients with glucose to increase blood-glucose concentrations. This lowers pH values in cancer tissues via lactic acid formation. In turn, this intensifies the thermal sensitivity of the malignant tumors and also induces rapid growth of the cancer. Patients are then given whole-body hyperthermia (42 C core temperature) to further stress the cancer cells, followed by chemotherapy or radiation.19 SCMT was tested on 103 patients with metastasized cancer or recurrent primary tumors in a clinical phase-I study at the Von Ardenne Institute of Applied Medical Research in Dresden, Germany. Five-year survival rates in SCMT-treated patients increased by 25 to 50 percent, and the complete rate of tumor regression increased by 30 to 50 percent.20 The
protocol induces rapid growth of the cancer, then treats the tumor with toxic therapies for a dramatic improvement in outcome.
The irrefutable role of glucose in the growth and metastasis of cancer cells can enhance many therapies. Some of these include diets designed with the glycemic index in mind to regulate increases in blood glucose, hence selectively starving the cancer cells; low-glucose TPN solutions; avocado extract to inhibit glucose uptake in cancer cells; hydrazine sulfate to inhibit gluconeogenesis in cancer cells; and SCMT.
A female patient in her 50s, with lung cancer, came to our clinic, having been given a death sentence by her Florida oncologist. She was cooperative and understood the connection between nutrition and cancer. She changed her diet considerably, leaving out 90 percent of the sugar she used to eat. She found that wheat bread and oat cereal now had their own wild sweetness, even without added sugar. With appropriately restrained medical therapy—including high-dose radiation targeted to tumor sites and fractionated chemotherapy, a technique that distributes the normal one large weekly chemo dose into a 60-hour infusion lasting days—a good attitude and an optimal nutrition program, she beat her terminal lung cancer. I saw her the other day, five years later and still disease-free, probably looking better than the doctor who told her there was no hope.

Aids, Cancer Cured by Hyper-Oxygenation

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on April 30, 2008

In 1988 this article started a mini revolution in the alternative
health care community because of its information on hydrogen peroxide
and ozone. BY WAVES FORESTSeveral dozen AIDS patients have not only
reversed their death sentences, but are now back at work, completely
free of the disease. They destroyed the virus in their blood by
hyper-oxygenation, know
n in various forms as oxygen therapy, bio-oxydative therapy or

THis is a simple, invexpensive and very broad spectrum healing process
that many feel could force a complete overhaul of the medical
industry. The two basic types of oxygen therapy are ozone blood
infusion, and absorption of oxygen water (hydrogen peroxide) at very
low concentrations.

It turns out that the AIDS virus cannot tolerate high oxygen levels in
its victims’ blood. Not only that, every other disease organism tested
so far apparently has the same weakness. Even cancer growths contract
and disappear when the oxygen saturation is sufficiently increased in
the fluids surrounding them, since they are anaerobic.

AIDS, herpes, hepatitis, Epstein Barr, cytomeglaovirus and other lipid
envelope virus are readily destroyed by hyper-oxygenating the
patient’s blood with ozone. This was demonstrated by, among others,
Dr. Horst Kief in Bad Hersfeld, West Germnay.

Dr. Kief has already cured a number of AIDS victims by drawing blood,
infusing it with ozone and returning it to the patient, at regular
intervals until all the virus is gone. (He can be reached through
Biozon Ozon-Technik GmbH, An Der Haune #10, Bad Hersfeld, D-6430,
Federal Republic of Germany.) Dr. S. Rilling of Stuttgart and Dr.
Renate Viebahn of Iffezheim are among the growing number of physicians
who have obtained similar results with their patients.

They are with Arztlich Gesellschaft fur Ozontherapie and JrJ Hansler
GmbH, respectively.

THE BASIS OF BIO-OXIDATIVE THERAPIESFor many years the health sciences
have been seeking to identify the primary pbysical cause of all
diseases, and the cure-all that this basic principle would yield. Now
both have been found, but their utter simplicity makes them difficult
to accept at first, since it seems lilke if it’s that easy, we should
have been using them all along.

Our bodies are composed mostly of water, which is eight-ninths oxygen.
Most nutritional studies tend to get caught up in the small details of
biochemistry and overlook our most abundant and essential element, and
the fundamental role of its depletion in causing illness. Of all the
elements the body needs, only oxygen is in such constant demand that
its absence brings death in minutes.

The main difference, for healing purposes, between benign
micro-organisms (including our own cells), and those which cause
disease, is that the latter require much lower oxygen levels. This is
due to their more primitive evolutionary origins, during the ages when
free oxygen was far less abundant.

Now their descendants can only survive in low-oxygen environments such
as accompany stagnation and decay. To become a growth medium for such
parasites, one has to have allowed the oxygen saturation of the body’s
fluids to drop well below the optimum level for healthy cell growth
and function.

The simplest substances available for restoring one’s oxygen balance
to a healthy range are ozone (O3), and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), which
is much easier to obtain and use. These are both highly toxic when
concentrated, which has tended to obscure their germicidal value
except as a skin antiseptic.

But when diluted to therapeutic levels (for H2O2, 1/2 of 1% or less),
they are not only non-toxic but uniquely beneficial.

OZONE BLOOD TREATMENTOzone overcomes the AIDS virus by a fundamentally
different process than usually attempted with drugs. Instead of
burdening the liver and immune system with more elaborate toxic
substances, ozone simply oxidizes the molecules in the shell of the virus.

The treatment is remarkably simple. The ozone is produced by forcing
oxygen through a metal tube carrying a 300-volt charge.

A pint of blood is drawn from the patient and placed in an infusion
bottle. The ozone is then forced into the bottle and mixed in by
shaking gently, whereupon the blood turns bright cardinal red. As the
ozone molecules dissolve into the blood they give up their third
oxygen atom, releasing considerable energy which destroys all
lipid-envelope virus, and apparently most other disease organisms as
well, while leaving blood cells unharmed.

It also oxygenates the blood to a greater degree than is usually
reached, what with poor air and sluggish breathing habits. The treated
blood is then given back to the patient. This treatment is given from
twice a week to twice a day, depending on how advanced the disease is.
The strengthened blood confers some of its virucidal properties to the
rest of the patient’s blood as it disperses.

The disease will not return, as long as the patient maintains his
blood in an oxygen-positive state, through proper breathing, exercise,
and clean diet.

A Dr. Preuss, in Stuttgart, has written up ten case histories of AIDS
patients he has cured by this method. But his and the other
physicians’ reports of cures are all anecdotal rather than in the form
of “controlled studies,” since they could not be expected to treat
some patients and deny treatment to others just for the purpose of
accumulating evidence.

Thus their results are not considered “prrof” by the U.S. medical
community. So the Medizone Company in New York has taken on the task
of doing the controlled studies required for the treatment to be
approved in the U.S. for general use.

from the FDA and IND (Investigative New Drug) approval for ozone,
which falls under the heading of drugs even though it isn’t.

They verified that ozone destroys the AIDS virus in vitro, and
completetd their animal tests in the fall of 1986. The tests
demonstrated no indication of toxicity, at ten times the equivalent
amount that is proposed for human treatment.

The Medizone Co. is at 123 E. 54th St., Ste. 2B, New York, NY 10022;
phone is 212-421-0303.

Medizone was granted U.S. Patent #4,632,980 on December 30, 1986, on
“inactivating lipid-envelope viruses in blood that is returned to a
mammalian host.” In humans, this includes AIDS, herpes, hepatitis,
Epstein Barr virus, and cytomeglaovirus, among others. Medizone
obtained tentative FDA approval in April 1987 to begin human testing,
but for a variety of “bureaucratic reasons” the FDA has postponed the
actual start of the tests 4 times now, with requests for further data,
some of which had already been given to them.

Months have passed, along with several thousand AIDS victims, since
the first announced starting date was postponed. The Medizone staff if
hoping to finally begin around November 1st, but are no longer
announcing expected starting dates with much confidence.

“There are no technical problems, but this is the FDA we’re dealing
with, after all.” As the Company’s future hangs on their decision, no
one at Medizone wants to risk antagonizing the FDA, by speculating
about their actual motives for stalling on a cure for this
unprecedented epidemic.

All this has been with virtually no publicity. The official reason for
this is that the accepted procedure for publishing medical
breakthroughs is to complete all the tests first, even though victims
may die waiting for the cautious, methodical testing procedure to run
its course. No one in the industry wants to raise false hopes, let
alone repeat the medical disasters that have resulted in the past,
from rushing approval on new treatments.

On the other hand, the enormously expensive and dubiously effective
drug AZT was widely publicized many months before it was approved in
the U.S. as its ongoing research into possible AIDS vaccines. In fact,
former FDA Commissioner Frank Young has even announced a proposal to
make experimental drugs available to AIDS victims as swiftly as
possible, without waiting for the full FDA approval procedure to be

So there appears to be a severe double standard involved here. It
seems that highly profitable “treatments” with serious side effects
can be promoted through massive news coverage, while an actual cure,
repeatedly demonstrated in Europe, with minimal cost and no apparent
harmful effects, must be delayed and kept quiet while panic and deaths
mount. Surely at this state the benefits of unauthorized publicity
will outweight the risks.

provides a simple method of purifying stored blood and blood
components, eliminating any possibility of disease being transmitted
by transfusion. It also pre-oxygenates blood to be transfused, greatly
reducing the burden on the body receiving the blood.

This application alone, of the Medizone process has enormous profit
potential, and the treatment will have vast international demand as
the news spreads.

This has not gone unnoticed by various investment analysts.
Confidential: Report from Zurich, Penny Stock Insider and Low-Priced
Stock Edition, among others, are urging their readers to get in on
Medizone now, comparing the opportunity to getting in on Zerox, IBM or
Polaroid when they were still unknown.

Various physicians have independently discovered ozone to be also
effective against cancer, leukemia, arthritis, coronary heart disease,
arterial circulation disorders, colitis, gum diseases, and assorted
children’s diseases. Some of these findings have now been collected
and published in the volume, Medical Applications of Ozone, available
from the International Ozone Association, 83 Oakwood Terrace, Norwalk,
CT 06850.

Some of the medical uses of ozone have been appreciated for hears in
Europe, Brazil and elsewhere, as well as its advantages over chlorine
for water treatment (no toxic residues, 5000 times more rapid
disinfection) but it’s still relatively unknown in the U.S.

OXYGEN WATERA much simpler type of Oxygen Therapy uses hydrogen
peroxide (H2O2), which is what ozone (O3) forms on contact with water.

It can be taken orally if diluted with water to 1/200 or less,
absorbed through the skin by bathing in it (anywhere from 1-8 pints of
3% H2O2 in a standard size bathtub half full), or in severe cases it
can be injected (250 cc of .075% to .15%, or roughly 1/1300 to 1/650).
Injections obviously require a physician’s assistance, but
self-treatment is possible with oral and skin applications.

The principle is the same as with ozone blood treatment. All hostile
microorganisms prefer lower oxygen levels than the body’s cells
require to remain healthy. Boosting the oxygen level revitalizes
normal cells while killing virus and other pathogens.

The domestic sales of hydrogen peroxide are rising at 15% per year, as
the news of this option spreads at the grassroots level. The rapid
expansion of the peroxide movement is especially remarkable
considering there has been almost no media coverage, and in fact the
FDA, American Cancer Society and other enforcers of established
medicine have tried hard to discourage the practice.

Hydrogen peroxide is the only germicidal agent composed only of water
and oxygen. Like ozone, it kills disease organisms by oxidation as it
spreads through the patient’s tissues.

This also destroys cancerous growths which are anaerobic. Nobel
Prizewinner Dr. Otto Warbug demonstrated over fifty years ago the
basic difference between normal cells and cancer cells. Both drive
energy from glucose, but the normal cell requires oxygen to combine
with the glucose, while cancer cells break down glucose without
oxygen, yielding only 1/15 the enrgy per glucose molecule that a
normal cell produces.

This is why cancer cells have such a huge appetite for sugar, and also
why people who consume excessive quantities of sugar tend to get
cancer more often.

The anaerobic breakdown of glucose by cancer cells forms large amounts
of lactic acid as a waste product, the same substances formed by
fermentation of lactose, as in spoiled milk. The liver converts some
of this back into glucose, in an attempt to salvage a food source from
a toxic waste.

In doing this the liver only uses 1/5 the energy per glucose molecule
that a normal cell can then derive from it, but that’s three times the
energy a cancer cell will get from it. The more the weak, deranged
cancer cells multiply, the more energy is lost to the normal cells.
Thus we find that low levels of both oxygen and energy tend to occur
where cancer is present, and vice versa.

This wasteful metabolism becomes self sustaining and dominant unless
the oxygen and/or energy levels are sharply increased, or the cancer’s
food source eliminated.

who performed the first heart transplant, said in March 1986 that he
was taking peroxide and water himself, several times daily to reduce
arthiritis and aging, and he recommended it highly at that time.

Since then he has come under heavy attack by the medical establishment
for this position, and now states that he “is not involved” with the
peroxide movement. But he does not retract his original endorsement,
nor deny that he still uses it personally.

Over a hundred physicians are already curing a broad assortment of
“incurables” with this natural antimicrobial agent. This includes some
forty or more in the U.S. A principal liaison to these free-thinking
physicians is Dr. Charles H. Farr, who wrote The Therapeutic Use of
Intravenous Hydrogen Peroxide.

He directs the International Bio-Oxidative Medicine Foundation, and
publishes the IBOM newsletter which contains procedural updates and
technical refinements for physicians using intravenous H2O2 therapy on
their patients. By classifying the treatments as experimental they can
get around the FDA’s archaic restrictions for now, until massive
public demand and/or meida exposure force official approval.

Dr. Farr summarizes the beneficial effects of H2O2 in IBOM issue #2;
these include killing bacteria, protozoa, yeast, and virus, oxidizing
lipids from arterial walls, increasing oxygen tension intracellularly,
stimulating oxidative enzymes, returning elasticity to arterial walls,
dilating coronary vessels, and regulating membrane transport.

H2O2 CAN BE SELF ADMINISTEREDThe oral and skin applications offer the
option of home treatment as no blood needs to be drawn, and hydrogen
peroxide is cheap and plentiful. Keep it diluted though; in high
concentrations it can irritate sensitive skin and induce vomiting when
ingested. (Veterinarians routinely give common 3% H2O2 to animals that
have swallowed poison, to make them throw it up.)

The starting dosage is one ounce of .5% (1/200) H2O2 in water, and
some will find they need to start with less. As the peroxide contacts
pathogens in the stomach it liberates free oxygen, so those with high
levels of virus and streptococcus in their stomachs may feel slight
nausea while the reaction is occuring.

The dosage is increased by an ounce per day, up to five ounces on the
fifth day, then finally up to five ounces three times daily for a week
(or until disease is no longer present). Then the dosage is tapered
back down over a five-week period.

Food-grade or Re-agent (these are 35%, dangerous if undiluted) is
better for internal use since the common USP 3% H2O2 contains small
amounts of chemical stabilizers and other impurities. It can still be
used if food grade is unavailable; it just isnt’ as pure.

An alternate dosage regimen uses three drops of 35% H2O2 in a glass of
water, three times a day, which is then increased by a drop per dose,
per day, up to 25 drops per dose in extreme cases. Candidiasis victims
should start at one drop per dose, and build their tolerance
gradually. Some find the taste rather bleachy and unpleasant, and may
wish to chase it with plain water. It can also be mixed with fruit
juice, and citrus juices in particular cover the taste pretty well.

Adding seven drops of 35% H2O2 to a gallon of drinking water and
shaking well purifies it and gives it a pleasant waterfall-like flavor.

These gentlemen have continued the research initiated by Dr. Edward
Carl Rosenow (1875-1966). They have located over 4000 peer-reviewed
medical articles on the applications of hydrogen peroxide, some dating
back to the 1800’s.

They received the National Health Federations Pioneer Award in
Medicine three years ago for this ongoing research. Walter Grotz, in
particular, has been touring and lecturing extensively on the benefits
of self-adminstered H2O2, literally saving lives wherever he goes, and
bringing hope to people who had been told their cases were hopeless.

Dr. Kurt W. Donsbach at the Bio-Genesis Institute in Rosarita Beach,
Baja Mexico (619-428-8585) , has achieved a remission rate exceeding
70% in over 300 patients, at last count, most of whom had been
previously told they were beyond hope, and had “tried everything
else.” Bio-oxidative therapies are now applied to all cases that
arrive at this clinic, and all respond except for some of those who
arrive already very close to death. The Guadalajara Medical School,
Mexico’s largest, is initiating their own tests this summer, and will
add it to their curriculum upon verification.

As Dr. Donsbach has pointed out, no U.S. clinic or institution has
ever tested intravenous H2O2 as a treatment for cancer, so any claim
that is not effective is not based on clinicl trial, and amount to
willful disinformation.

The Gerson Institute and La Gloria Clinic in Mexico are also using
hydrogen peroxide therapies on their patients, after the staff tested
it on themselves and found it to be beneficial.

HYDROGEN PEROXIDE IN NATUREHydrogen peroxide occurs naturally in rain
and snow, from atmospheric ozone, and in mountain streams where
rushing water is continuously aerated. Most of us learned at an early
age to drink from a stream only where the water’s running white,
because that’s where it gets cleansed of germs. The reason is that
H2O2 is forming there due to the water’s rapid agitation, and that’s
what kills any harmful microbes present.

By just shaking a bottle of water vigorously for a while you can tuck
enough extra oxygen into it to form detectable amounts of H2O2,
improving its purity, flavor and vitality.

It turns out that the spring waters at Lourdes, France, long
recognized for their remarkable healing properties, are very high in
natural hydrogen peroxide. The spring is fed by high-altitude
snowmelt, so the snow apparently absorbs unusually large quantities of
ozone on its way from the upper atmosphere. Other less-known high
altitude springs are said to be likewise effective.

Similar benefits can be obtained in a swimming pool or hot tub, by
discarding the chlorination system and simply pouring in H2O2 or by
bubbling ozone through the water. One simple method of making
pool-grade ozone is to pump air past aon enclosed ultra-violet lamp.

Raw, uncooked vegetables and fruits contain natural hydrogen peroxide.
Cooking drives off the extra oxygen. Fresh fruit juices are well known
for their blood-cleansing and revitalizing capabilities, particularly
when they are not combined with other foods; this is largely due to
the H2O2 they contain. Reconstituted frozen juices have much less, and
are no longer “alive,” thus they are not nearly as effective.

H2O2 IS HEART OF IMMUNE SYSTEMMother’ s milk contains a high amount of
H2O2, especially colostrum, the first milk secreted after birth, which
activates the newborn’s immune system. H2O2 is the first line of the
body’s defense systems, and key to many other metabolic processes.

Under conditions of optimum health, H2O2 is produced by the body’s
defense systems, and key to many other metabolic processes.

Under conditions of optimum health, H2O2 is produced by the body’s
immune system in whatever amounts are needed to quickly destroy any
invading hostile organisms. It is made by combining water in the body
with the free oxygen that is supposed to be constantly available. When
the body is oxygen-starved, it can’t produce enough H2O2 to wipe out
invading pathogens, which can then get the upper hand and cause
visible disease.

effective against infection, it is largely due to the formation of
bactericidal amounts of H2O2, when glucose is oxidized by O2 in the
presence of penicillium notatin. (General Biochemistry, Fruton &
Simmonds 577.1 F944 p. 339)

Much has been made of the healing properties of Interferon, but it is
unbelievably expensive. However, much of its effectiveness is
apparently due to the fact that it stimulates production of H2O2 and
other oxygen intermediates, which are a key factor in reactivating the
immune system. (Journal of Interferon Research Vol. 3, #2,1983 p.

Thus Interferon may turn out to be simply a very elaborate way to
accomplish essentially the same thing as the H2O2 regimen.

Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) has long been recognized as essential to the
proper use of oxygen by the cells. Dr. Linus Pauling has demonstrated
that large doses of Vitamin C are effective against cancer. The
mainstream medical community still has not acknowledged this
discovery, let alone put it to use, despite Dr. Pauling’s credentials.
As it turns out, vitamin C actually creates extra H2O2 in the body.

Organic Germanium (bis-carboxyethyl germanium sesquioxide) is gaining
increasing recognition as a potent healing substance, primarily
through the work of Dr. Kazuhiko Asai. This compound directly
increases the body’s oxygen supply, as it contains a great deal of
oxygen in a form that can be easily assimilated. (See Miracle Cure;
Organic Germanium by Dr. Assai, Japan Publications, Inc., Tokyo and
New York.)

Taheebo (aka Pau D’Arco or Lapacho Colorado) is a tree that grows in
the Andes and fixes high concentrations of oxygen in crytalline form
into its inner bark. The bark has been used for centuries by the
native peoples of the area to prevent and reverse illnesses, and it is
one reason why they do not get cancer.

In recent years it has become popular in the U.S., and it gets by the
FDA as an “herbal tea” whose distributors wisely make no medical
claims for it. Again, much of its effectiveness is apparently due to
its high oxygen content, released in solution when brewed as a tea.

CAUSES OF OXYGEN DEPLETIONThere are several very common practices that
drop a person’s oxygen level far below where it should ideally be. At
sea level, 20% of the atmosphere is supposed to be oxygen, but city
air goes down as low as 10%, due to smog and removal of trees. Air
that tastes bad induces a tendency to breathe shallowly, getting even
less oxygen to the blood. So does lack of exercise.

The carbon monoxide (CO) in smog does not normally occur in nature in
much quantity since it’s formed by incomplete combustion of carbon
compounds. It is electrically unbalanced, so it seeks to bond with any
available oxygen to form the more stable carbon dioxide (CO2).

Those who breathe too much carbon monoxide tend to die fast or slow
depending on the concentration. It strips oxygen molecules from the
blood to form CO2, which the body can’t use and must exhale, at least
until its oxygen runs out. The fact that the body considers CO2, a
waste product, by the way, doesn’t say much for carbonated beverages.

Tap water is very low in oxygen, having had no opportunity to be
aerated during its journey through the pipes, and being loaded down
with chlorine and various contaminants. Since cooking drives the extra
oxygen out of vegetables, if one’s diet is mostly cooked or processed
foods, there’s yet another oxygen source lost.

EATING FASTING AND OXYGEN BALANCEOvereating is so common in the U.S.
it’s considered “normal”. One cause is the widespread use of oral
antibiotics. While destroying the target germs, these drugs also kill
off one’s intestinal flora, which are needed for healthy digestion.
With these friendly bacteria gone, digestive efficiency plummets.

As a result, the sensation of hunger comes more often and lasts
longer, as the body tries to compensate for ineffective digestion by
increasing the amount consumed.

Even just eating daily, without ever giving the gastrointestinal tract
a rest, loads down the blood with toxins and impurities, especially
uric acid crystals. Under a microscope these resemble tiny
coffin-lids, interestingly enough, another clue to our Creator’s
whimsical sense of humor.

When the waste products exceed the cleansing capacity of the kidneys,
the blood ends up having to just haul it around the body and stash it
wherever possible. These toxins literally take up so much room in the
blood cells that the cells can’t take on enough oxygen when they pass
through the lungs. the blood’s primary function of picking up and
distributing oxygen gets blocked by overuse of the gargabe hauling

Fasting restores healthy by giving the overloaded blood cells a chance
to dump the toxins and inert matter through normal organs of
elimination at a rate they can handle, instead of through the skin, as
in acne, or other inappropriate places. If the fast is long enough,
accumulated residues in the body are also scoured out and expelled,
giving a considerable spiritual resurgence once all the backlog is
cleared away.

While the debris is flushing out, various toxic reactions may come and
go. Once the blood is cleansed the red corpuscles have a lot more room
for oxygen moleucles, the oxygen saturation of the tissues is high,
and health and energy are boosted considerably. Each breath now gives
more life than it was able to in the blood’s earlier state.

Most long-lived native peoples, who are not affected by our our common
diseases, either include fasting as a regular part of their yearly
food cycles, or eat much less overall, than industrialized peoples.

Today many Americans are existing at such high levels of toxicity,
that their toxic reactions when attempting to fast can seem intense
enough to make them start eating again before any serious cleansing
can be accomplished.

Fortunately one can partially bypass the lungs and get the blood
oxygen level back up, by taking oxygenated water internally and
through the skin. Several weeks of detoxification with this regimen
will also make it much easier to fast without discomfort, if one
chooses. It reduces appetite, logically enough, to a level more in
line with the body’s actual needs.

The bacteria that aid digestion are not killed by oral use of H2O2, as
long as it’s diluted properly.

OXYWATER MAY EVEN CURE STUPIDITYPerhaps the greatest potentiakl
benefit is the reversal of the lsight brain damage cuased by long-term
oxygen depletion, which can be observed in the “average” human, and is
sometimes not all that slight.

It’s well known that after about 9 minutes of no oxygen, from drowning
or whatever, you can kiss your brain goodbye. But the implications of
constant gradual oxygen starvation in our cities somehow escape
notice, despite the tiredness, depression, irritability, poor
judgement and health problems affecting so many citizens.

Increasing the oxygen supply to the brain and nervous system will
reverse these conditions. The oxygwater regimen improves alertness,
reflexes, memory and apparently intelligence, and may offer the
eledery a new weapon against senility and related disorders.

Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s are reported to be responding to it.
Alcoholics who start taking H2O2 soon lose interest in alcohol, and
the thirst does not come back. Look up what alcohol does with your
blood oxygen and your ability to use it, and you’ll see why.

One possible spin-off of a coming major increase in the blood oxygen
supply to human brains is that various short-sighted oxygen-depleting
activities such as deforestation, and other unintelligent practices,
should fade from the scene. Americans especially, will have an
opportunity to outgrow many stupid things.

It’s strange that the common drug aspirin “stops pain” by interfering
with the nervous systems ability to use oxygen, in the electrochemical
reactions needed to transmit impulses.

Though maybe it’s not that strange, considering that the Bayer Company
which originated it was a subsidiary of IG Farben, the German chemical
conglomerate that is famous for, among other things, developing and
mass-producing the lethal gas Zyklon-Bk specifically for
exterminations at Nazi death camps.

ECONOMIC INERTIADr. Terry McGrath, the CEO at Medizone, confirmed that
hydrogen peroxide would in principle act much like ozone in destroying
the AIDS virus, but pointed out that it’s never likely to be tested
and proven in the laboratory.

There’s simply n economic incentive, since it’s an unpatentable
process and offers no more commericial returns than most other natural
remedies. So it’s completely up to the individual patients and
concerned citizens to push these options out into the open,
immediately, before various companies get too financially committed to
the assumption that AIDS (or any other disease) will continue to
spread and be incurable.

This is as good a place as any for the FDA-required disclaimer:
“Information given here is for research and educational purposes only
and is not intended to prescribe treatment.”

form that benefits from compensation for their oxygen-deficient air,
water and/or lifestyle. H2O2 in animals drinking water, not enough to
taste unpleasant, knocks out a growing list of illnesses.

Locally, cats have gotten rid of their feline leukemia and chlamydia,
and are back to their old energetic slapstick selves. Distemper in
dogs has been reversed with H2O2, and a growing number of farmers are
applying it to their livestock to cut losses from disease and infected

Plants grow better with an ounce of 3% H2O2 per quart of water they’re
given. Spray the solution on their leaves as well. Seeds germinate
faster, with bigger sprouts, when they are first soaked in 1 ounce of
3% H2O2 to a pint of water. Instead of cutting trees that are diseased
or otherwise struggling, spray them with H2O2 and water (1 part 3% to
32 parts water).

WHY ISN’T THIS ALREADY IN USE?The obvious question is, if
hyperoxygenation is so simple and effective, why has it taken so long
to discover it? Ozone is hardly new and hydrogen peroxide has been on
the market for over a century. Why aren’t all the doctors already
using it? How come this story isn’t all over the major news outlets?

Turning the question around helps clarify the problem. Just exactly
what would happen if a cure was discovered that was completely
effective against the vast majority of diseases, ridiculously cheap
and plentiful, and in most cases could be self administered without a

Would the current medical establishment welcome a breatkthrough that
could render 98% of all drugs, testing and disease related surgery
obsolete? What would the response be of the pharmaceutical
industrialists, hospital chain owners, health insurance moguls, AMA,
and FDA?

Would you expect to read of hear such an announcement from any medical
journal or media outlet owned by people financially committed to the
medical status quo, which is practically all of them? How many want to
help their own occupation become unnecessary?

And if the cure had already been suppressed once, wouldn’t the
possible blame for allowing people to die without it provide even more
incentive to continue keeping the whole thing quite?

All right then. This is precisely the situation that exists,and the
cure has indeed been around for ages. It has been independently
reported effective against virtually every disease at one time or
another, in thousands of public-domain medical articles, which had
never been collected and correlated until recently. And it is so
simple and basic that concealing it from most physicians and the
general public has required a tremendous smokescreen or artificial
complications, narrow specializations, symptomatic classifications and
user hostile treatments.

If this is so, it follows that the more profit-fixated elements of the
medical establishment will not be too thrilled about the recent surge
of interest in oxygen therapies. The drug industry has expanded
enormously since WWII, while America’s level of healthhas dropped from
the world’s highest to the lowest among the industrialized nations. It
does look as if the bottom line has been money and not health, for a
long time.

The battle for the future of medicine, between Nature’s truth and
lucrative lies, is about to really heat up. We can expect to see
disinformation articles and newscasts with persuasive medical experts,
some of whom will even believe what they’re saying, warning of the
dangers of hyrogen peroxide, ozone, and even regular oxygen.

These reports will attempt to blur the distinction between using
therapeutic dosages at safe dilutions, and the harmful effects of
excessive concentrations. Plenty of grisly examples are available, of
what happens when various tissues are over-oxidized.

Anti-oxygenation propaganda pieces will probably not mention that over
the years the FDA has approved H2O2 as a skin antiseptic at full 3%
strength, as a hair bleaching agent at 6%, and for internal use as an
additive to milk and in aseptic long shelf life packaging.

Nor are they likely to acknowledge that many European countries use
ozone and H2O2 in their cities water supply, and that they enjoy much
better health than in the U.S. And they will be unable to truthfully
cite any examples of people who were harmed by using H2O2 in the
correct demonstrated therapeutic concentrations.

It is vital for Americans to realize the current economic dynamics
don’t allow the businessmen in charge of the health industry any
incentive at all, to make people permanently healthy and lose them as
customers. It’s the same reason why the energy conglomerates do not
encourage citizens to become energy-self- sufficient, the Pentagon has
no incentive to stop wars, and the American Psychiatric Association
sees no advantage to ending mental illness.

Fortunately, the majority of physicians really do want to see their
patients get well. They also wouldn’t mind regaining the respect and
admiration with which physicians were once more widely regarded.

When it comes down to a choice between saving lives and protecting
profits, most will be brave enough to overhaul their medical belief
systems, discard obsolete methodolgies, and basically tell the
pharmaceutical conglomerates to go shove it. The rest will simply get
left behind.

even heard of it, so it’s usually a waste of time to ask them. A
number of chemical supply houses have 35% H2O2 available; check your
local directories and call a few.

Under FDA pressure, DuPont and possible other major chemical companies
have recently issued warnings to their distributors, not to sell
hydrogen peroxide to people who want it for healing purposes. So when
you inquire, if they ask what you want it for, it will unfortunately
be necessary to lie.

If you say you want it as a cleaning agent, that’s at least pretty
close to the truth.

Several physicians quietly sell it through the mail, but they aren’t
the same ones promoting its healing properties, for ovious FDA-related
reasons. A good source in California, though he can ship it anywhere,
is Dr. A.J. McDonald, at P.O. Box 775, Lodi, CA 95240;
209-368-8681/ 12$/pint.

Your best move would be to share this information with owners of
health-food stores in your area. Call them and ask if they have
food-grade H2O2 (some already do) and tell them why you want it and
how it works. Encourage them to carry it and give them Dr. McDonald’s
address if they don’t seem inclined to track down a local source.

Cleanroom-grade 30% H2O2 (used for cleaning in computer rooms since it
is a powerful disinfectant and leaves no residue when it evaporates)
is reported to be just as pure as food grade and much cheaper.

Check with labs that make “wafer fabrication” chemicals, or contact
the manufacturers of silicon chips and other computer parts, and the
data processing complexes that might use it in their cleanrooms, and
ask where they buy it. The more sources become known, the harder it
will be for anyone to make it unavailable.

GET THE WORD OUTWrite your elected officials, send copies of this
information, and point out what will happen to a politician whose
constituents learn he knew of a cure for cancer and AIDS but didn’t
tell them about it. Call in on radio talk shows and share the good
news, or send copies to their reporters and program directors,
especially at listerner-supported stations as these are less likely to
suppress it. Don’t assume your local papers have already heard of
this; write letters to editors, and/or send copies of this report.
Tack it up on every bulletin board you see, and post it on all
revelant computer bulletin boards.

If you know teachers, physicians, or health officials who can still
think for themselves, tell them about this and give the references.
Notify your local police officials that hyper-oxygenation gives them a
way of making sure they’ll be safe from infection due to contact with
AIDS carriers. If you’re really feeling bold, walk into the local
hospital’s cancer wards and hand a copy of this report to anyone who
can still read, and slip out the back door before their doctors walk
in. Share it with anyone you know who has a health problem, even a
minor one; H2O2 apparently works on everything from acne to warts.

Above all, stop buying the idea that cancer, AIDS, and other
“terminal” illnesses are automatic death sentences. When you hear some
celebrity you like is sick or dying of this or that, look up their
mailing address in Who’s Who or whatever, and mail them this
information. If the address is for an agent, who are notorious for
blocking attempted communcations to their client, you might include a
cover letter, stating that the enclosed vital news is also being sent
to their client’s family members, and that if he or she learns through
them that there was life-saving information sent but held up at the
agent’t, that agent will be out of a job. Act like you have the clout
it takes to make a difference, and you soon will.

Major scientific breakthroughs go through three stages; first they are
ridiculed, then violently opposed, and finally they are accepted as
having been self-evident all along. Let’s see if we can short-cut
those first two stages a bit, OK?

Intravenous vitamin C – Mr Hemingway’s experience

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on April 30, 2008

There’s really a lot of info on this site so do browse. This supports and extends the info and critical discussion in my two cancer books.  For more information go to

“This book tells me everything. Why didn’t my doctor tell me this?”- Rev. Bill Newbern

Mr Hemingway’s Experience

(This was one of my first posts and I have just found that I have not attributed its source – I am sure I got it from Bill Henderson’s Beating Cancer Gently website and magazine (apologies). The rest is in Bill’s words):

I told you about Don
Hemingway who was diagnosed with prostate cancer last summer and made an
independent decision to forgo surgery, chemotherapy and radiation.
Instead, he immediately began receiving intravenous vitamin C (IVC)

A few days after that e-Alert went out, I was very pleased to receive an
e-mail from Mr. Hemingway. After expressing his thanks he noted that he
lives in Souris, Manitoba, Canada (I had mistakenly noted that he lived
in Brandon, Minnesota), but he didn’t add any information about his
condition. When I wrote back to find out how he’s doing, I received a
reply that offers an invaluable insider’s perspective on IVC cancer
therapy, as well as practical advice for men who are experiencing
prostate problems.
Sufficient reason
Mr. Hemingway is a veterinarian who describes himself as having a good
understanding of many orthomolecular and allopathic medical treatments.
Here’s how he begins his story:

“My Father and his two brothers had prostate problems but because I
lived a few thousand miles from them, I do not know many details.
Surgery and drugs were used but I do not know which ones. For this
reason I have tried to eat well and take supplements but it wasn’t
totally preventative. We will never know, but maybe what I was doing
delayed the onset by 10 years.

“A routine test in March 2005 showed a serum PSA level of 14.5 ng/ml.
Repeat tests in September 2005, (PSA 17.9) and November (22.5) which is
about a 1 unit rise per month indicated that I had a serious problem. I
refused a biopsy because if the problem was an infection or cancer there
is a high probability that the biopsy would spread the disease. The
rising PSA and a positive digital rectal exam was sufficient reason for
me to treat my problem as Cancer.”
PSA roller coaster
“I had known for many years that zinc was essential for a healthy
prostate but the various products that I had taken over a 20 year period
were not successful in getting my tissue levels to a ‘normal’ level.
Test results in May 2005 showed that my zinc levels were low. I started
searching for a better absorbed zinc product. In September, I started
taking an expensive zinc supplement and tests in January 2006 indicated
that my tissue levels were the highest it had been in 20 years, better
but still could be higher.

“I started Intravenous vitamin C (IVC) in July 2005 at 25 gm doses and
increased to 50 gm twice weekly but when the PSA tests in September were
still increasing, I started searching for more information. I made an
appointment to see the Doctors at The Olive W. Garvey Center in Wichita,
( during November. Comprehensive testing at ‘The
‘ indicated that I should be taking 100 gm of IVC at least weekly.
Since I could not be an outpatient, they gave me directions that I could
give to a Doctor that was willing to give me the IVC. The PSA test in
November at The Center was 22.5 ng/ml of serum.

“I have continued to take 100 gm IVC every 5 or 6 days since November
and the PSA tests have been as follows: January 20.32, March 16.36, and
May 13.6. The discomfort in the area of the prostate gland has
disappeared and the declining PSA test tells me that I am on the right

“I have not had any side effects. The side benefits are that I have been
able to continue with my regular duties, as well as play hockey and swim
with my family and grand-children.”
Immune system support
“The principles of IVC treatments are that at high doses the vitamin C
is toxic to most cancer cells and is non-toxic to normal cells. Vitamin
C supports tissue repair whereas radiation damages tissues. Vitamin C
supports the immune system whereas most chemotherapy depresses the
immune system and people become more susceptible to other infections.
Vitamin C helps the body to detoxify ‘foreign’ chemicals which includes
the breakdown products of dead cancer cells. Most people can continue
with their normal routine on the days between IVC treatments which is
certainly a plus.

“In my search for information on Prostate Cancer, I have found that many
cancers are caused by toxins produced by fungus (Costantini, AV). Dr.
Costantini has published information that states that the chemical
identified as Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) is actually a serine
protease with a molecular weight of 33-kDa. Several researchers have
identified this chemical as being produced by various species of fungus.
The chemical identified in the PSA test has also been found in breast,
pancreatic and colon cancers. It is not specific for Prostate Cancer. A
treatment with an antifungal drug can be given previous to the IVC
treatment or in conjunction with the IVC treatment.”
O Canada
Don Hemingway is a perfect example of just how effective health care can
be when you research diligently and stand your ground. His experience
also demonstrates how important it is for men and their doctors to avoid
drawing conclusions from a single PSA test. (See the e-Alert “Test
Busters” 1/25/06, for more details about the pros and cons of PSA

At the end of his e-mail, Mr. Hemingway included his address with this
note: “I think if people are willing to take the time to write they are
genuinely interested in information.”

So if you’d like more information…

Supporting chemo – Al’s advice

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on April 30, 2008

  I started immune system builders about 6 weeks before I began chemo.  I had my blood and hair analyzed by a certified nauturopath. 
  The following is what the naturopath put me on.
  Melatonin   20mg  once in evening
  Multi Vitamin without iron or copper 6 a day
  Cod Liver oil 1 tlbs a day
  Green Tea Extract 1600 mg a day
  Coreolus-PSP Mushroom extract 1600 mg a day
  Calcium 600 mg a day
  Magnesium 300 mg a day
  2-4 cups green tea a day
  I have had no mouth sores, loss of weight, no loss of appetite except on chemo days and about 2 days after.  No severe nausea.
  I also changed my diet to total organic.  I have had red meat thee times in the last six months so most of my protein comes from vegetables, fish, egg whites, whey protein, organic chicken.
  I hope this helps, but remember this is for my immune system and everyone is unique.

vitamin C research (2)

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on April 30, 2008

Study Highlights Hospital Use of Vitamin C Instead of Chemotherapy to
Help Treat Cancer

By Greg Arnold, DC, CSCS, April 10, 2006, abstracted from “Intravenously
administered vitamin C as cancer therapy: three cases” in the March 26,
2006 issue of the Canadian Medical Association Journal

One of the 20th century’s biggest proponents of  vitamin C  in promoting
health was Linus Pauling, the only person ever to win two Nobel
Prizes.(1) Known to take 18 grams of vitamin C per day,(2) Pauling used
vitamin C frequently to help treat  cancer . Pauling’s research(3) found
that terminal cancer patients who took 10 grams of vitamin C per day
survived more than 4.2 times as long (more than 210 days) than controls
(50 days). In another study of non-terminal cancer,(4) patients taking
10 grams of vitamin C per day had an average survival time about 300
days greater than that of the controls.

Despite those early studies, studies by the Mayo Clinic did not
reproduce this benefit of vitamin C in cancer patients(5, 6) yet vitamin
C continues to be used as an alternative cancer therapy.7 These
contrasting results seem to lie in whether the vitamin C is given orally
or intravenously. Linus Pauling‘s studies combined IV and oral
administration, whereas the Mayo Clinic studies used only oral

Recent research has found that very large doses of vitamin C will
increase plasma concentrations “only modestly” when given orally whereas
the same dosage given intravenously raises plasma concentrations more
than 25-times higher to levels that are toxic to cancer cells.(8)
As a result of IV vitamin C administration producing much higher blood
levels, a new study(9) has found that hospitals are offering vitamin C
treatment in place of chemotherapy and are seeing cancers go into

In one case, a 51 year-old woman with kidney cancer that had spread to
her lungs took 65 grams of vitamin C per week for 10 months as her only
medical treatment while she personally took thymus protein extract (no
dosage given), N-acetylcysteine (1500 mg per day) and whole thyroid
extract (30 mg per day). Although the cancer went into remission after
10 months, she continued to  smoke  and the cancer reappeared four years
later which did not respond to the vitamin C therapy.

In the second case, a 49 year-old man with bladder cancer received 30 g
of vitamin C twice per week for 3 months, followed by 30 g once every
1–2 months for four years as his only cancer treatment. The patient’s
personal supplement regimen was extensive and included  alpha lipoic
acid  (100 mg daily),  flaxseed oil  (3,000 mg daily),  probiotics ,
selenium  (400 mcg daily),  glucosamine/chondroitin  (2,000 mg daily)
and  glutathione  (no dosage given). Fortunately, the cancer went into
remission and the patient remains cancer-free nine years after diagnosis
with no symptoms of cancer.

Finally, a third case highlighted a 66 year-old woman with “untreated
stage III diffuse B-cell lymphoma”, which has a “dismal prognosis.” The
patient refused chemotherapy but instead elected to have radiation
therapy in conjunction with vitamin C treatment, taking 15 grams of
vitamin C twice per week for two months, 15 grams once to twice per week
for seven months, and then 15 grams once every 2–3 months for 1 year.
At the end of one year, the patient was in remission and “remains in
normal health” more than 10 years later. In this case, the researchers
admit that “a cure occurred in connection with intravenous vitamin C
In conclusion, vitamin C’s usefulness in treating cancer required high
blood levels of the antioxidant which are achievable only with IV
administration, especially for advanced cancers.

Vitamin C research supports anti-cancer claims

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on April 30, 2008


Research backs theory that vitamin C shrinks tumours

By Jeremy Laurance, Health Editor

Published: 28 March 2006

New research suggesting that vitamin C can be effective in curing
cancer will renew interest in the “alternative” treatment for the
terminal disease.

Three cancer patients who were given large intravenous doses over a
period of several months had their lives extended and their tumours
shrunk, doctors reported yesterday.

A 49-year-old man diagnosed with terminal bladder cancer in 1996 was
still alive and cancer-free nine years later, having declined
chemotherapy and radiotherapy in favour of regular infusions of
vitamin C.

A 66-year-old woman with an aggressive lymphoma who had a “dismal
prognosis” in 1995 was similarly treated and is still alive 10 years
later. A 51-year-old woman with kidney cancer that spread to her
lungs diagnosed in 1995 had a normal chest X-ray two years later. The
findings were confirmed by pathologists. Although they do not prove
the vitamin cured the cancer they do increase the “clinical
plausibility” of the idea, the researchers say.

Vitamin C therapy was first promoted by Linus Pauling, the Nobel
prize winner
, 30 years ago. Dr Pauling’s claims sparked the
continuing boom in sales of vitamin C, but attempts to confirm his
findings failed and high-dose vitamin C became an “alternative”

The latest study, published in the Canadian Association’s Medical
Journal, could trigger renewed interest in Dr Pauling’s claims.
Studies show that vitamin C is toxic to some cancer cells but not to
normal cells. The problem has been delivering a high enough dose.

The researchers say attempts to replicate Dr Pauling’s work failed
because they used oral doses of the drug which is rapidly excreted.
However, injections achieve blood levels 25 times higher that persist
for longer. At these very high doses, the blood level of vitamin C is
high enough to selectively kill cancer cells.

Several clinical trials of vitamin C therapy are about to start,
including one at McGill University, Montreal, the authors say.

breast cancer cure – Agi’s story

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on April 30, 2008

Triumph over Cancer

A Natural Approach

By Agi Barsi Lidle

“Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re going
to get.” How right Forest Gump was. Just when we are batting 1000,
by choosing our favorite pieces of chocolate, with confidence we
choose another and bite into it. Yuk! it’s awful. There is no polite
way of spitting it out. We have to brave it, bear it, chew it, and
get it down as quickly as we can–and then try again.

I bit into my least favorite chocolate four and one-half years ago.
Spitting it out was not an option. I had to swallow it, digest it,
and decide how to avoid ever biting into the same piece ever again.

On July 9, 1997 a phone call changed my life. “I’m sorry, Agi, you
have breast cancer,” said the radiologist. My emotions ran wild.
First there was disbelief, then anger, and finally sadness.

After I learned that the prognosis was poor for this type of breast
cancer, I intuitively knew I had to try an approach other than
traditional methods. Within days of the diagnosis I learned about
the “Incurables Program.” My inspiration to follow this program was
a young woman’s healing story. She was in her 20’s and diagnosed
with breast cancer. She also chose the “Incurables Program” and
within a few months was healed. I knew that if she could do it, I
could also! From that moment on I knew, without a shadow of a doubt,
I would be healed too.

The next day after my decision I called all three of my doctors. My
primary care physician had not thought anything was wrong with my
breast until my third visit when I finally said, “If this was your
breast what would you do?” I had physical signs something was wrong.
My nipple became inverted, and I had puckering along side of it. She
finally wrote me a prescription to get a mammogram. Her answer to my
decision to treat myself was, “I think it’s stupid.” My radiologist
and surgeon both couldn’t believe my decision.

For the next week they kept calling me trying to convince me to
change my mind. I wouldn’t change my mind and asked them to stop
calling me.

Before cancer, I knew nothing about natural health and healing. My
diet consisted mostly of fast foods, including meat almost every
day. I used to think vegetarians were weirdos, and it was abnormal
not to eat meat. Many times out of my mouth came, “I would never
become a vegetarian.”

Never say never, because my healing journey began by eliminating
meat, dairy, and sugar from my diet. Instead, I nourished my body
with fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, nuts, and seeds.
Amazingly, my husband Bill supported me in my decision to heal from
cancer naturally. Within two weeks, he also eliminated meat from his
diet. Wow! What a drastic adjustment for both of us!

With powerful herbal formulas, cold sheet treatments (hydrotherapy),
Native American black salve and undoubting faith, I eliminated
cancer within six months of the diagnosis. My latest test results
were outstanding. The only physician I called back was my
radiologist. She did say that she also believes and does herbs
herself! After completing my healing program my nipple was no longer

Learning how to cook was my biggest challenge. Before cancer, the
kitchen was foreign to me. Today, passion for creating delicious and
colorful vegetarian recipes energizes me. I spend much of my time
teaching cooking and un-cooking classes in my home.

Looking back over the past four and a half years, I can honestly say
that cancer was a blessing. The experience empowered me to see and
live life differently. Cancer forced me to face the emotional chains
keeping me from living a healthy and fulfilled life. The biggest
chain to be broken was un-forgiveness. Forgiving all those who I
held resentment (and even hate) for was a biggie. Before lasting
healing could occur, I knew forgiveness was imperative. Cancer also
made me take a good look at myself, so I could be more forgiving of
myself by treating myself with the same kindness I show others and
having as much joy for myself as I had for others. Cancer also
forced me to let go and give my fears to God and allow Him take the
burden from my shoulders.

Cancer doesn’t scare me anymore. Keeping steps ahead of it is the
key. Knowing how to release negative emotions and how to build a
strong immune system is important. A friend once said, “Life and the
art of living it is not in the arrival or departure; it’s in the

Today I feel so empowered yet humble knowing how marvelous the human
body is and, when given the chance, can heal itself. I always ponder
the idea that a lizard can regrow its tail. Why can’t we do even

breast cancer cure – Valerie

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on April 30, 2008


by Valerie Jeffery DMS Astrol., F.A.P.A.I.


I moved to Dorset with my husband a week before Christmas 2001.  Almost a year later in October 2002 because I was with a new medical practice I was asked to attend the mobile mammogram unit for screening, a year earlier than I was due.  This accompanied the feeling that I was meant to go for some reason!  At the end of October I was recalled to Poole Breast Screening for another mammogram.  An area in my right breast looked different to the left, and by the time I went for further tests, this was verified as new, because they had scrutinised my last mammogram which had been sent from Luton.  I had another mammogram, plus an ultrasound scan which showed a very small suspect area, difficult for doing a biopsy, but this was eventually achieved, and I can think of better ways of spending Halloween!


On the 7th November I learned that unfortunately, the biopsy did not yield a result, which meant I would have to have a tiny area removed surgically to know if it was benign or malignant.  This hospital appointment was telephoned to me by my Macmillan Nurse, Frances, early one morning.  As I still did not know what I was medically dealing with, I was not yet in a position to make an informed choice about my treatment, but realised that there was no biopsy report for a reason.  I felt I was meant to be admitted into hospital to make contact not only with other patients, but with members of the breast-care team.  An important experience for me personally, especially as a healer.  I had recently come to hear of many experiences of cancer patients I knew, from youngsters to mature ladies such as myself, and I knew I could not go down the orthodox route.   


On the evening of my Admittance to Chickerell Ward at DorsetCountyHospital on the 3rd December, I found myself the only patient in the Day Room for the evening meal, accept for one other lady, Gill.  We sat down together, and it was clear from her conversation, that like me, she was on the holistic wavelength.  We both questioned a great deal of what was on offer on the medical pathway, and Gill provided me with what I needed at this time, a copy of the pilot issue of ICON!  The case histories in this magazine were of the kind I had read now and again over the years, but had not kept.  People healing themselves of cancer in alternative ways such as diet, affirmations, various healing disciplines, prayers, etc.  (I sometimes forget that whatever I need to know is out there on the Internet!)  Not only these wonderful stories, but all the detailed advice necessary on what to cut out of your diet, what to include a lot of, organically where possible, and the high doses of supplements you need, all to reverse the cancer cells – normal cells that have not renewed themselves correctly for some reason were all there in ICON.  As soon as I returned home, I sent for a subscription to include the few back copies I had missed.


On Monday, 16th December, I attended the breast-care clinic to be told I had Invasive Breast Cancer Grade 3.  It goes up to Grade 4.  The hospital wanted me to have more surgery to make sure that the cancer cells and pre-cancerous cells were removed, plus a couple of lymph nodes under the arm to check that the cancer had not spread.  This I declined, but said I would still attend the clinic appointment they wanted to give me, so that I could tell them exactly what I was doing to heal myself.  I had by this time already researched what to cut out of my diet and what to include more of, as a healthy background to clearing cancer cells.  Now I had to include the necessary high doses of many important cancer-clearing supplements.  I was, as a veggie/vegan, halfway there, and should have been very healthy, but I had been neglecting myself nutrition-wise for a long time and undermined my immune system.  Busy, busy, busy, just a quick cup of coffee and on with my various freelance work in animal welfare, environmental issues, astrology, healing, writing, etc., etc., etc.  You sometimes think you are superwoman, or superman, and that you will be sustained if you are on the right pathway, but you have to live by the rules of this dimension, too.  The absence of the necessary nutrition to sustain my physical body, I know, had been the main cause of it not being able to regenerate cells normally.  By Wednesday, 18th December I had my healing regime in place.  Already taking Menopace, a vegetarian 22 nutrient tablet for menopause as I had come off of HRT, I added Vitamin C with Bioflavonoids, Vitamin E, Kyolic Garlic, Coenzyme Q10, Selenium, Phyto Soya and Milk Thistle Complex, all vegetarian.  The most important supplement I took, and still take in a lower dose, has been MGN 3 ‘Bio Bran’ which consists of the outer husk of brown rice and the enzymes of three Japanese mushrooms.  Information on this wonderful product is out there on the Internet and available from The Nutri Centre and The Really Healthy Company, both in London.          


As a campaigner for animal welfare since the 60’s, I have been aware for a long time that natural products for our personal use and in our homes means less pollution of both ourselves and our environment.  The less animal ingredients AND chemicals the better.  In this day and age our infrastructure has been so undermined by industry, manufacturing and commercialisation.  Power and money are the gods worshipped by those at the top, at the expense of Mother Nature and Planet Earth.  We are unfortunately reaping the consequences more and more.  Armed with this knowledge, I was not about to subject my body voluntarily to radiation and chemicals as a means to combat my cancer cells, especially as it would only be targeting the cells that were known, i.e. in the right breast.  The whole body needs to be treated.  I could not do that to the body I had nurtured all my life, but unfortunately had unknowingly neglected and caused it to struggle to sustain itself.  It needed love and nutrition.  Somewhere along the line, the medical profession handed over the healing of cancer to technology.  I find this so hard to believe, knowing what I now know about cancer, and the technology.  It is not the disease we have to worry about, it is the medical treatment.  This is not only my opinion but countless others, including a good cross-section of the medical profession itself.  As a healer and writer I had to go down this pathway.  If I had not experienced cancer myself I would not have gained all the knowledge I have doing a crash-course in healing my body as soon as possible.  I can now also say with true understanding to cancer patients, that I do know how they feel, and help support them in whatever decisions they make concerning their treatment, be it medical or holistic, or both, and help them with the mental and psychological anguish that accompanies this experience. 


Whilst following my regime, I also had all the support I could wish for from friends and healers, plus I was guided to new contacts and books for invaluable information.  I found myself having the most profound conversations with complete strangers who are prominent people in the arena of health.  There was a great deal of networking going on, to pass around individual knowledge and experience.  Aware as I have been since childhood of more than this life in this dimension, the guidance I received during this period of time has been amazing.  Our angels are there for us to ask for their help with even the most mundane tasks.  Because of the transformation that the experience of cancer can bring about, it can become a blessing in disguise.  Even whilst healing myself I was able to support and help others with all that I was learning.  This was an added bonus at a time when my life, out of shear necessity became very home-based.  


At the beginning of my self-healing, in January 2003 I was told by one of my new contacts of a Dr. Robert Jacobs who healed cancer patients and had a clinic in Dorset.  They were old colleagues and he did not know how up-to-date the information was that he had.  He gave it to me and I filed it away, as he seemed to be quite a distance for the short January days, when I needed to be at home, keeping to a strict support system of meals and supplements.  However, about three months later, a lady at a health store in Dorchester who had been invaluable helping me to sort out the milligrams and micrograms, etc. for my supplements in December, gave me a book she thought I might like to read.  It was ‘The Wise Woman’ by Judy Hall with Dr. Robert Jacobs!  Judy is a fellow professional astrologer, who like me belongs to The Association of Professional Astrologers International, and I realised that Dr. Jacobs was her partner!  Obviously, the time was right to see him, with the longer days of Spring and a more flexible regime in place.


I visited Rob on 20th May, 2003.  He is a doctor who has combined conventional medical training with a study of Eastern Philosophies and systems of healing.  He has studied medicine in China, Germany and England, and Acupuncture with Dr. Julian Kenyon.  Using electro-diagnostic apparatus, Dr. Jacobs can obtain a reading from the body’s energy field, and in my case could find no trace of cancer in my body whatsoever.  Within 5 months my healing had taken place.  My surgeon had told me that they would not be able to tell me if I was in remission, but I knew someone out there could!  With screening the whole body in this way, who needs a mammogram to look at only the breast area, which according to American research is equivalent to 1000 x-rays!


Right from the beginning of my healing regime I soon began to look and feel really well, and more in touch with my true self which I did not realise I had lost sight of in the hustle and bustle of this modern age.  As Chris Woollams has said in ICON and in his book ‘Everything You Need To Know To Help You Beat Cancer’ the make-up of the cancer patient is very much the ‘people pleaser’, and it does seem that putting others first habitually can lead to self-neglect when time and energy are at a premium.

April 2008 Postscript:  At the time of writing, my situation has changed since my self-healing of breast cancer early in 2003, in that my husband Neil suddenly passed over three years ago.  Although I still have his loving support and, at times, guidance for achieving things in this dimension that he would normally have dealt with, I have to be a little more flexible in my everyday life.  I do not drive, but am meant to stay in my lovely little home in a village way out in the country with only a church and an inn, whilst maintaining my privacy and independence.  Hence, the computer is very much my lifeline in my new support system.  I have a loving family and we are all spread out down the U.K.  The last time I was able to easily pay my annual visit to Dr. Robert Jacobs for a check-up was the end of 2005, but every time I attended his practice he would say ‘there is absolutely nothing I can do for you, Valerie, you are so healthy’!
