God’s Healing Word

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on July 29, 2008

God’s Healing Word by Felicity Corbin-Wheeler:

I am not a Christian and the author of this book is a fervently devout Christian. It might seem as if we have little in common – but then she did cure herself of stage 4 pancreatic cancer. That is not a diagnosis that many survive. She did it following a Bibical inspiration which she interpreted as saying eat apricot kernels. She did this supplemented by B17 injections. This is her book of personal testimony. You cannot help being impressed.

Alternative Treatments for Mesothelioma

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on July 28, 2008

Jesse Herman of Mesothelioma Cancer Center has this to say about the value of alternative treatments for Mesothelioma:

There are many mesothelioma treatment options for those people who have the deadly cancer resulting from asbestos exposure. Fortunately, those with mesothelioma are finding alternative ways to cope and actually extending their quality of life.

Dietary supplements such as vitamins, minerals, herbs and amino acids all have their place in helpful alternatives, or additions, to existing therapy. Amino acids, vitamins and minerals are all necessary for the body to carry out essential life functions. Flaxseed, ginseng and garlic are all herbs known to reduce blood pressure.

It is important with supplements that they don’t disrupt your prescription medications so as with everything, consult your doctor first.

Meditation, massage and yoga are all great ways to release tension. It is important to not e with massage therapy that while most of the time it is helpful, it can actually worsen certain conditions. B applying deep pressure or physical manipulation, conditions like osteoporosis and cancer that has metastasized to the bone can be disruptive. If you are going to go this route, be sure it is with medical supervision.

Many people find themselves facing radiation and chemotherapy. Other therapies are quickly on the rise, such as gene therapy, immunotherapy and photodynamic therapy.

The objective behind gene therapy is to correct issues caused by a defective gene by using special techniques to replace the defective copy of a gene with a copy that functions properly.

Immunotherapy involves the manipulation of an individual’s immune system to assist in the fighting of disease. This fools the immune system into registering cancer cells as foreign, thus directing the immune system to destroy cancer cells.

Photodynamic therapy utilizes light energy to obliterate cancer cells, while leaving healthy cells mostly unaffected.

black salve experience

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on July 26, 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


Dr Loretta Lanphier reported this to a yahoo health group:

I have worked with black salve to some extent.  We actually made some up in a tincture form and one of our successes was a lady in California that had a skin cancer on the top of her head.  She had it off and on for many years but it seemed to be growing and she was beginning to feel worse and worse.  She was an acquaintance of ours and asked if we had anything that would help, so we sent her some of the tincture to apply to the area. We also had her change her diet, cleanse and rest, etc.  With a true black salve 1) It should only be applied 1x.  More is not necessarily better.  2) If a reaction begins to occur then it means there are most likely cancerous cells.  If nothing happens to the area then cancer is probably not present.  Now, some black salves will cause a reddening of the skin, if it gets on normal skin. She did not feel good for a while because she did go through some detoxification and we made sure that we helped her with that – especially with liver and bowel cleansing. Later that year we did a seminar in California and she attended.  Her son had taken pictures of the before and after.  We were absolutely amazed!  It had healed wonderfully and hair was even growing back.  She looked great and felt good.  This was about a 3-inch in diameter cancer.

This tincture that I am talking about was made in 2002 (just to give you an “age” of the tincture).  Last year (2007) I had a place on my chin that just would not heal.  I did everything I could think of and nothing seemed to help.  So I was going through my “medicine closet” and saw the black salve.  I put one-drop on the area and I could feel it work immediately.  It was not terribly uncomfortable and within two days the area began to heal and has not come back. And, best of all, no scar.

Zinc needs to be in the black salve.  The secret is to refrain from applying the salve more than once.  Also using a good quality vitamin E during the healing process is recommended.

Some black salves are not true black salves.  Companies try to come up with their “own” product so that it is “theirs” to market and different from all other products.  However, because of this the term black salve has many different connotations.  Some are more harmful and some may seem to work and some not al all.  Really, no new ingredients need to be added as it will work effectively with the main ingredients that I listed yesterday.  The true black salve ingredients, when properly combined, make the product nothing short of remarkable – allowing people to heal from skin cancers that conventional medicine can literally make a mess of.  Also, black salve does get to the root of skin cancers.  Many have also taken black salve internally and had good results.  Again, professional and knowledgeable help needs to be sought out. Kathryn has much more experience in this area that I do. As the body is healing from any cancer, you will need to support it with cleansing/detoxific ation and a very healthy diet.  I have seen people heal their skin cancers using black salve with only minimal lifestyle changes; however, it is lifestyle that attributes to the development of cancer and continuing to do the same thing that helped to get you sick in the first place but (for whatever reason) expecting different results is the definition of insanity.

Proceed with caution and I would HIGHLY recommend being under the watchful eye of a KNOWLEDGEABLE healthcare professional.  Many people are left with huge scars because they “did their own thing” and/or did not have correct information.  Black Salve has its place in natural medicine and it is definitely a product that needs to be used with caution.

Be Well

Recommended source for black salve

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on July 24, 2008

Dr Loretta Lanphier says:

I recommend getting in touch with Kathyrn at http://www.austinpa balm/ .  She makes Balm of Gilead Black Salve and offers great support and guidance. 

The ingredient list is for a true black salve should always include the following: Zinc Chloride, Galangal Root Powder and Blood Root Pow

Note: The Cancer Survivor’s Bible (2012) is now available – see

“very well written, beautifully organised and easy to read and understand.”

The Idea

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on July 23, 2008

The Amazon Best Selling Cancer Book Project

The idea is simple. One in two people can expect to get cancer at some time in ther lives therefore everyone needs to be alerted to the alternative point of view – that cancer can be prevented and/or treated with non-toxic, non-painful therapies – but only if you know what you’re going to do. Therefore people need to know about a book that provides a sane discussion of cancer. That’s what I believe I have done with my book Cancer: The Complete Recovery Guide – see

The best way of getting information out is through an email information dispersal campaign.

If you agree with the essential message that the best time to prepare yourself for cancer is before you get it – then I would like to invite you to copy the letter in the following post to all your friends and relatives – and ask them to do the same.

This will hopefully boost people’s understanding of the key issues underlying non-mainstream cancer therapies – and so make it more difficult for the government to get the public to acquiesce to limitations on health freedoms.

Knowledge is power. The better educated the general public is the better we will all be. So please help spread the word about my book.

Thank you

Letter – Please mail this letter to all your friends and relatives

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on July 23, 2008

Please read this right through. It’s important and it could change your life.

Hi Everybody

We’re trying to make a book written by my friend, Jonathan – a book that has information about dozens of ways to cure cancer – into an internet best seller. The book is called Cancer: The Complete Recovery Guide. Will you help us?

Jonathan wrote the book as a result of his wife, Bernadette, dying of cancer (and from the effects of her treatment). That was 15 years ago. Jonathan has been researching cancer ever since. He knows of dozens of cancer cures and he wants other people to know about them too. These cures are being dismissed and ignored by doctors for reasons of medical politics and pharmaceutical profits. This is an important book – read the testimonials on his website

Jonathan is a very proactive person. He has founded not one but two charities for mentally handicapped children – go to his website and read the story of his daughter, Stevie. See if you can read it without being utterly moved.

Jonathan has given a great deal to make the world a better place to live in – and he wants to do more. But now he needs our help. He needs your help.

This is what we want to do. We’re going to try to see if we can get is book into the top 100 books on Amazon. Could we even get it to #1? Let’s try.

The more people know about the book, the more they will know the best ways of treating cancer. We can save lives. Maybe one of the lives that is saved will be yours – or that of someone you love.

And what’s my role in all this? Although I am a publisher I am not the publisher of this book. I have published one of Jonathan’s non-cancer books and I have helped him get this book to market. I am helping Jonathan simply because I am very impressed with this book and I believe everyone should know about it.

The way this is going to work is for you to
1. Read Jonathan’s letter below
2. Buy the book as requested – see links below
3. Send this letter on to all your friends
4. Then keep tabs on the Amazon ranking of the book – and see how close we can get.

Thank you for your support

Pete Spurrier
Publisher, Blacksmith Books

Jonathan’s letter:

Dear Everyone

I am hoping you can do me – and yourselves (friends or relatives) – a favour.

My big cancer book – Cancer: The Complete Recovery Guide – has just been published (for more information go to

The sales pitch: You are 100% certain to know someone who has cancer and your own probability of getting cancer yourself is close to 50% (yes, nearly 1 in 2 people now get cancer!). The best time to think about what you might do in that situation is now – before you get cancer – when you are not stressed or in a state of panic. Perhaps I am being immodest but I do think my book is among the best guides you will find. If you wait until you get cancer and then simply go along with what the doctor advises…well, that’s what we did and I deeply regret it. I have no doubt that Bernadette would be alive today if we knew then what I know now.

The truth is that there are drugs that, in many cases, will help stop cancer in its tracks. There are many other approaches that have cured people. You can read some of their stories in my book. Beata used a diet to cure ‘terminal’ melanoma; Percy got rid of a sarcoma (similar to one that had killed a friend) by using a mix of minerals; Patty used a herbal paste to kill her breast cancer; Elonna used a chemical with electrical properties to eliminate a tumour on her spine. These are real people. Apart from Percy – who died aged 100 (50 years after his bout with cancer) – all the others are alive today.

The favour: Please go to Amazon and buy a copy of my book. When the book arrives please read it. Then tell your friends about it. Do this as a favour to them. It is certain that one of your friends – or one of their friends – will know someone for whom this book could be a life-saver.

Thank you

Book Description and Testimonials

Cancer: The Complete Recovery Guide

This book describes what cancer is, discusses the two ways of conceptualizing cancer (is the tumour the disease or is it simply a symptom of a disease?) and explains why this distinction is important. It also explores the mainstream approaches – and the pros and cons of surgery, radiation and chemotherapy. It evaluates cancer research and explains some of the defects of the current situation. Having laid the foundations, this book then gives a detailed description of what the alternative approaches are: the extra tests you might want to consider, the detox regimes, the diets, vitamins, herbs, supplements, machines and other therapies that could give you a better than 90% chance of recovery from cancer. Yes, it’s true. The exciting truth is there are dozens of cures for cancer. It may be that none are 100% effective for every person and every cancer but used together in parallel or successively these approaches can help people with cancer to become cancer free again. But you can’t do them if you don’t know what they are.

Here is what some people have said about the book:

“I now can recommend your book to the people in my support group as ‘the’ book to read. You have covered just about everything that I have read, and it took me over twenty books and innumerable downloads to do it. This book is more precious than gold!” – Richard Thompson

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

“First of all let me say: Congratulations on your superb book!…Let me say immediately that your book is authoritative, reputable and much more comprehensive and better balanced than the vast majority of other books on the topic. Also it has much valuable material that I don’t recall seeing in any other book. The book should appeal to cancer patients and their families…the tone is engaging and lively and will appeal to anyone sympathetic to alternative approaches. You have succeeded in making a complicated subject accessible.” – Leonard Rosenbaum, Board of Dirs., Intl. Assn. of Cancer Victors & Friends

Mr Chamberlain has a voice that is at once humble and powerful. I like writers that cut to the chase, and then do not skimp on the practical details…and I really like his attitude. He speaks from the heart, but clearly wants you to use your head. Good combination.” – Andrew Saul PhD. The Doctor Yourself Newsletter.

Aids cure according to Steve Martin

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on July 23, 2008

The End of AIDS. Summary

In this essay, I am going to attempt to put together a viable HIV treatment protocol. I have tried this in the past, but the protocols did not work to my satisfaction. Go here goes…

First and foremost, the final phase of the disease, AIDS, must be reversed. I realize that this sounds impossible but it really isn’t. AIDS, in my opinion, is characterized by a steadily progressing glucosteroid insensitivity. Virtually every clinical symptom associated with AIDS is identifical to that associated with adrenocortical insufficiency. Methylprednisolone, in low hormone replacement doses, has been used to block proinflammatory induced shock and death. This hormone can also be used to block the extreme inflammatory response that drives HIV infections into AIDS. Further, it can be used to reverse AIDS into a more benign viral infection, while restoring total body homeostasis.

Glutamine, in 50 gram doses, 25 grams twice a day in juice, is used to complement the low dose glucosteroid treatment. Glutamine also inhibits PI-3K/AKT signaling, thereby causing the death of long term viral reservoirs in macrophages.

ONLY glutamine and methylprednisolone are used to reverse AIDS. NOTHING ELSE.

Once AIDS is reversed, we can breathe freely while we attempt to erradicate the virus from the body.

When the body has stabilized and appetite and strength have returned, we can drop the methylprednisolone and concentrate on reactiving the immune response against the virus.

Low hormone replacement doses of methylprednisolone are not immunosuppressive. That is a contradiction in terms.

I want to strongly emphasize that the CD4 T cell count is irrelevant for our purposes here. It is a poor indicator of clinical status. There are people who have CD4 T cell counts of 10 who are not sick. Naturally, their innate immune response is still functioning. The innate arm of cellular immunity has nothing to do with CD4 T cells.

Second phase.

Hopefully, the glucosteroids have substantially reduced reduced the synthesis of TNF and other pro-inflammatory hormones that drive HIV infections into AIDS.

In this phase, we will use 50 mgs of elemental zinc per day. Zinc sulfate capsules of 220 mgs or so contain about 45-50 mgs of actual zinc. I capsule per day. The bottle will tell you how much zinc is present in each capsule. Do not exceed 50 mgs of zinc a day.

As I have written, zinc activates the entire immune response. Zinc also specifically activates PI-3K/AKT signaling, which is absolutely required for T cell development.

Glutamine and arginine are necessary for proper immune functioning. If your appetite has returned, a person can get all the necessary glutamine and arginine from the diet. Arginine is found in high concentrations in nuts. High dose glutamine supplements are not necessary in this phase.

Alpha lipoic acid and n-acetylcysteine, taken together, will help to rebuild the glutathione levels in the body. Glutathione is necessary proper immune functioning. It is usually depleted in HIV infections.ALA works in the presence of retroviral drugs, but NAC does not. Together, they may help to increase the CD4 T count in the presence of these drugs. But don’t hold your breath. Retroviral drugs are immunosuppressive. They may drop the viral titer, but they rarely increase the CD4 T cell counts.

The ALA dose is 300 mgs three times a day. The NAC dose is 600 mgs twice a day. ALA will also regenerate vitamin C and vitamin E in the body. You can take these supplements also, but not in excessive doses.


The immune system is quite durable. If you can remove the toxic factors which inhibit its activity, such as excessive TNF, FAS, and TRAIL apoptosis responses, it will regenerate itself.

In the first phase, we are attempting to reduce glucosteroid responses using low dose hormone replacement doses. This will act to inhibit the inflammatory response that is driving the disease. Glutamine restores homeostasis in the body, while killing long term macrophage viral reservoirs by blocking PI-3K/AKT activity. 

In the second phase we are attempting to support an enhanced immune response against the virus. We are not attempting to “activate” the immune response against the virus. The HIV virus and virally infected cells are very immunogenetic. In the absence of interfering factors, the immune cells will rapidly clear the virus. Thousands if not millions of people have been exposed to the HIV virus yet they remain healthy. Many of these people are seronegative, which means that the virus didn’t last long enough in the body to stimulate an antibody response.

Pass this series of essays along to your friends. I realize that many physicians are afraid to prescribe glucosteroids to HIV infected persons because of a fear of immunosuppression. Hormone replacement doses are not immunosuppressive.The hormone replacement dose is only temporary anyway, but it MUST be used. If you don’t inhibit the activity of the death hormones TNF, FAS and TRAIL, the disease process will continue. If you have money or insurance, you can elect to remain on HIV drugs until they eventually fail. Of course, your immune system will never reestablish itself due to the immunosuppressive nature of these drugs. Unfortunately most of the world has no access to these drugs so protocols like this are ideal.

It’s worth a try. Nothing else is working.

Stay tuned…
