blackseed oil and cancer

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on December 31, 2008


Black seed oil – made from black cumin seed – appears to have anti-angiogenetic effects which help to attack cancer’s ability to spread. One recommended source is http://www.amazingherbs.com/blackseedoil.html

Cannabis oil 2

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on December 23, 2008


Mike was kind enough to answer my query on the Yahoo groups (Cancercured) with a different way of preparing cannabis oil from the whole plant – here is his description of the process:

Hello jonathan,

You can simmer all the chopped up plant parts, except the root, in
Everclear in a crock pot. This will take hours , but is a safe
method. Simmer it down until you have only a little liquid left. At
that point you can transfer it to a beaker and heat it on a coffee
maker until you have a black, tarry substance, which is the cannabis
oil. Doses can be administered by using a “smidgen” measuring spoon
(much smaller than a 1/8 teaspoon). You can take two doses per day
by holding it in the mouth until it is absorbed, then drinking some
water.
The oil contains multiple versions of cannabinoisc which can kill
cancer cells that have cannabinoid receptors by arresting the cell
cycle
and inducing apoptosis.

Unfortunately it takes about a pound of plant material to get enough
oil to last the three months it often takes to get the results.

Cannabis oil

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on December 16, 2008


If you are looking for cancer related info then you will find a lot on this site – do browse. This supplements the info and critical discussion in my two cancer books. For more information go to www.fightingcancer.com

 

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

HOW TO MAKE CANNABIS OIL
Cannabis oil is gaining a reputation as a powerful anti-cancer agent. There are medical dispensaries for marijuana in the USA. If anyone has information about other places let me know. Anyway, here is a simple recipe for making the oil.
Easy way for making hash oil

I have been reading the posts of this forum about hash oil, and seems the people thinks making hash oil is somewhat difficult, even dangerous. I dont know what recipe you are using… anyway, i made hash oil with a easy and cheap technique, and with good results. I would like to put some pictures, but unfortunately i have not even a webcam and sorry for my english… translating while half baked is not nice

Ingredients:
– Weed
– Acetone (nail polish remover)
– One small glass bottle

Instructions:
Even if there is contradictory opinions about decarboxilating weed in this forum, from my experiences it seems to work very well, so the first step is decarboxylate the weed. It can be done by several ways.

You can follow the Master Wu’s technique:
“2. Place in a shallow pan (a sheet of aluminum foil works great) and bake at 325°F for 5 minutes.”
(http://boards.cannabis.com/recipes/8…-combined.html)

Or the boiling water technique:
“The potency of marijuana can be increased by about 50% simply by simmering a water slurry of the material for 2 hours. Add water as necessary to maintain the level. Dry the leaf material at low heat.”
(from Robert A. Nelson: Hemp Husbandry ~ Cannabinoid Chemistry (Ch 6))

Or just microwave the weed for some 5 minutes. This last technique (microwaving) were not tested by me, but there were people which did it and said it worked.

Anyway, after the weed were decarboxylated by any of this techniques (if you dont want decarboxilate your weed, start from here) it must be grinded. If the weed were “cooked” in the decarboxylation precess, it will be much easier to grind, as the weed will be crunchy and dry.

Put the grinded weed into the glass little bottle. Add the acetone to it. The volume of the liquid must be about 2 times the volume of weed in the bottle (see figure 1 below). Close the bottle very well (as acetone is very volatile), and shake it vigorously. Let it in a dark place for 1-2 days. It will allow the THC to dissolve in the acetone. (it must be a dark place, cause light decomposes the thc)

Remember the acetone is a VERY flammable thing, so all the steps must be made far from fire or heat sources. An important thing to consider is the purity of the acetone. Here in brasil the acetone sold as nail polish remover have 50-60% of purity. It works, but as purer, as better. Usually there is an indication of the purity grade written in the bottle, so when you buy, try buy the acetone with the greater purity.

After the 1-2 days, the acetone will have turned to dark green/brown. Darker it is, more THC it contains. Them carefully drop only this dark liquid into a shallow dish. Try avoid the weed fall into the dish. It is somewhat difficult, but with some practice it becomes easier. (see figure 2)
Let the dish in a dark and well ventilated place to the acetone evaporate. It MUST be a safe place, far from fire or any source of heat/sparks, as the acetone is very flammable.
Depending on the temperature, and the amount of acetone, it can take 1-2 days to evaporate. If the weather were too cold, put a fan in front of the dish, to facilitate the evaporation.

When almost all acetone were evaporated, there will be a dark layer of an oily/sticky substance on the dish. Sometimes, depending the purity of the acetone, there is a small amount of a water-like liquid together this oily thing. If this water-like liquid were clear, almost transparent, you can throw this liquid away, as all the THC is already deposited in the dish. (when the THC is dissolved in a liquid, the liquid becomes dark)

This dark sticky resin is the hash oil. Now it is the most boring part. Scrape it from the dish. The hash oil is one of the more stickiest substances, so its a shit to scrape it. Put some warm water into the dish, as it makes the hash stick less to the dish, and with a round-pointed knife scrape all the dark resin. It takes *a lot* of time and patience. If you need to touch the resin, wet your fingers, as water difficults the hash oil to stick. Try to make a ball with the resin.

And its ready! It can be smoked by several ways… chose the one of your preference… and remember the hash oil is stronger than the weed used to make it, so be careful, ou your will become

And good luck for all!

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

“This book gives hope. …I wish I had read this book before I was diagnosed. My doctors and the cancer charities didn’t tell me any of this.”

WARNING: There are people out there pretending to offer cannabis who are in reality scammers and fraudsters. Be very careful who you trust.

Budwig Protocol Testimonials

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on December 4, 2008


There’s a lot of cancer info on this site so do browse – this supports the infor and critical overview of cancer in my two cancer books – see www.fightingcancer.com

“This book tells me everything. Why didn’t my doctor tell me this.”

BUDWIG PROTOCOL TESTIMONIALS

Sandra Olson posted the following testimonials on the Yahoo Cancercured chat group:
Thousands of people have healed themselves of all kinds of cancer,
including estrogen positive breast cancer, by following a special diet
at home that costs only what they pay for the foods at a grocery
store. The diet was created by Dr. Johanna Budwig, a German bio-
chemist, who treated patients from around the world for over 50 years,
until about 2002, and had a success rate of over 90%. Her practice
included many terminal patients who had been given only days or weeks
to live by their conventional doctors.

The Budwig Protocol has also healed people who never met Dr. Budwig
but followed her plan at home on their own. There is a Yahoo
group, FlaxseedOil2, with over 120 testimonials from group members
who regained their health the way after having advanced cancers.

From the testimonial list, below are 3 examples from women who healed
breast cancer with mets by following the Budwig plan while at home.
More breast cancer testimonials are in the FlaxseedOil2 files.

1] Re: Breast Cancer with mets to the bones. Janice wrote: “I have
had no surgery…no allopathic medicine whatsoever. The tumors in my
breasts (both sides), have reduced by 70-80% over the last four
months on the BP. I have regained 60-70% range of motion in my left
arm (which was practically none). My right arm is at about 90%…I
had about 50% range before Budwig Protocol.”
Janice is doing very well today with full use of her arms and no
symptoms. She posts often in the FlaxseedOil2 group.

2] Re: Breast Cancer – In ’95 Daphne Moore had a cancerous breast
tumor removed. In ’01 metatasis to the vertebre was found. She began
the Budwig Plan & is now cancer free.
On Jan 2, 2006, Daphne wrote: “I am estrogen positive at 12 on a
scale from 1 to 12 & since starting the Flax Oil/Cottage Cheese 5
years ago have had no more breast cancer.”
On July, 2007, she wrote “…after getting the results of my annual
check-up, nothing new to be found, in fact the old hotspot where I
had had a back fracture from an accident has also disappeared. ..I am
a 12.5 year survivor of advanced BC. I still follow the Budwig diet
on a daily basis and love it.”

3] Re Breast Cancer, Patricia wrote:
“I had relapsed with nodes (4) in my armpit that were the size of
grapes on the opposite side from my primary breast cancer, and
stinging pain in two spots in my back, as well as the same pain in my
knee. I got back on the Budwig program and over the past month I
have rescheduled my doctor visit three times because I didn’t want to
have nodes diagnosed. My back doesn’t hurt anymore and my knee is
almost pain free- just a twinge every so often. I finally went today
after I couldn’t feel any thing there anymore…and guess what –
neither did the doctor! I got a “clean bill” today, and you guys all
know the story because I have posted all the pieces. I am happy, and
grateful, and amazed, and I just wanted to let you all know. Yes, I
know that I am not cancer free – but I am here to tell you that this
is better than any chemo or radiation I have ever seen…and I am
enjoying my food and my life every day…and I feel good. I know a
blessing when I see one…and I see it!”

largest lymph node around the liver was 54mm. August 2007 I did
ultrasound again: My largest lymph node is 30 mm – 20% smaller…”
After straying from the diet for a while, then getting back on it,
Halima wrote: “The ultrasound shows that the spleen is reduced from
192 mm to 187 mm, the liver is reduced from 185 mm to 166 mm. The
lymph nodes remain the same.”

the Budwig diet since mid-September and has had these wonderful
results…Believe me! The protocol is DEFINITELY worth
following! …My Mom hasn’t been on chemo since September, so the
disappearance has to be due to the BP.

surgery but at my one year scan, a 4-6mm lung nodule was found. I
started Budwig afterwards. After 2 scans full of bad news, it was so
good to hear that they see no evidence that there is any active
cancer in my body right now! I’m ready to celebrate!!!

Mine was 11%. Within 9 months on BP it shot up to 38%, which is where
it remains a year later.[A score over 25% means less risk of cancer.]

cancer in the lymph node they biopsied. They stated they were sure it
was in the entire clump of lymph nodes in the area and wanted me to

were EXTENSIVE dead cancer cells in the lymph node…I KNEW the dead
cancer cells were from the Budwig diet! I continued with the BP and

breast cancer, cimetidine and mebendazole

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on December 3, 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 www.fightingcancer.com

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

CIMETIDINE & MEDENDAZOLE – PERSONAL EXPERIENCE

I have a large tumor in my left breast which has continued to grow
for the last two years despite many different alternative
treatments. (Will not go into the long list now.)

After reading several articles in the Grouppe Kurosawa Natural
Medicines
Public Blog, I have been taking cimetidine, 200 mg, 4 times
a day on an empty stomach (CVS brand over the counter acid reducer)
and mebendazole, 100 mg, 3 times a day on an empty stomach
(prescription worm medicine). I did this for 6 weeks, took a week
off, then have been doing it for another week and will continue. I
do not know if this dosage is optimum or not.

When I started, the breast was aching a lot (which I believe was the
expanding tumor pressing on tissues) and had just started to have
some stabbing pains occassionally. Within days of starting the
cimetidine and mebendazole, all aches and pains in the breast
ceased. The other thing I noticed is that the breast cooled to the
touch; it had been noticibly warmer than the other breast. This
makes sense if it is disrupting the formation of blood vessels which
feed the tumor. I haven’t noticed any shrinkage of the tumor yet.

I am continuing to take some other supplements but list is too long
to post now.

If there are more positive changes, I will post another message.

Blessings to All.

Reply to Cheryl

Hello cheryl,

The action of mebendazole (Vermox) on cancer cells does not have much
to do with it being a worm killer. Other meds and herbs that kill
worms would be unlikely to work for cancer.
Mebendazole damages tubulin in cancer cells. It interrupts the cell
cycle
before the cells go into mitosis. It also stimulates
apoptosis, natural cell death. It also seems to block angeogenesis,
meaning it stops blood vessel growth to tumors. It has a synergistic
effect
with cimetadine (Tagamet). The cimetadine increases the half
life of the mebendazole by blocking a liver enzyme that breaks it
down. Cimetadine has immune boosting effects and also inhibits
metastasis. Both drugs are fairly low with regard to side effects.
Mebendazole only damages cancer cells while leaving normal cells
undamaged.
Cimetadine is “over the counter”.
Mebendazole requires a prescription in the States, but is very easy to
get through Canadian companies advertising on the net.
