artemisin and leukemia

ARTEMISIN & LEUKEMIA

Reprinted from a Yahoo ‘Cancercured’ chat group:

Look up “artemisin and Dr. Singh and Dr. Lai”.

These 2 doctors are studying the wormwood plant (artemisinin is derived from). The best results they have found is on leukemia. Artemisinin is used to treat Malaria and, except for North America, is an acceptable treatment. It gets into cells and reacts with iron, destroying the cell. Cancer cells are very high in iron. I think Malaria patients take it for 2 years so it is assumed safe…in appropriate doses. I buy artemix and it is very expensive (about $2 per pill) but when I started to take it, one of the tumors started to shrink substantially. As with most of us on alternative “healing tools”, I do not know if it is the Artemesinin responsible for the reduction or the emotional work I had done as they coincided.

I think in vitro Artemisinin killed 100% of Leukemia cells in 8 hours and 80% of breast cancer cells. I have breast cancer. Most websites I read about this stuff say to take it alongside a comprehensive plans so it just may be a jump-start for BP.

I emailed Dr. Singh and he answered me right away with the right dosage. They are working out of a university in or near Seattle WA. You may want to send him an email and outline your situation.

more facts for Karl to think about (see previous post)

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on March 24, 2009


http://www.fightingcancer.com news:

Some quotes to give you pause for thought before deciding to take chemo

“To pass the FDA test with a drug, after spending few hundreds million of dollars, you just have to prove that this drug can shrink cancer tumors. NOT CURE.. SHRINK !! In fact most drugs shrink cancer tumors at the beginning but then…(they come back more aggressively)” Shaman Urban, Cancercured Yahoo chat group.

“A study of over 10,000 patients shows clearly that chemo’s supposedly strong track record with Hodgkin’s disease (lymphoma) is actually a lie. Patients who underwent chemo were 14 times more likely to develop leukemia and 6 times more likely to develop cancers of the bones, joints, and soft tissues than those patients who did not undergo chemotherapy (NCI Journal 87:10).”—John Diamond, M.D.

“Children who are successfully treated for Hodgkin’s disease are 18 times more likely later to develop secondary malignant tumours. Girls face a 35 per cent chance of developing breast cancer by the time they are 40—-which is 75 times greater than the average. The risk of leukemia increased markedly four years after the ending of successful treatment, and reached a plateau after 14 years, but the risk of developing solid tumours remained high and approached 30 per cent at 30 years” (New Eng J Med, March 21, 1996)

Chemotherapy and radiation can increase the risk of developing a second cancer by up to 100 times, according to Dr. Samuel S. Epstein.
Congressional Record, Sept. 9, 1997″

Vincent’s letter to Karl

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on March 23, 2009


http://www.fightingcancer.com news

Vincent Gammill wrote the following letter to Karl who was wondering why scientists and doctors don’t do more – especially as their own relatives are impacted by cancer:
Karl,

There is no big conspiracy, no cabal, but there is an overarching
capitalist paradigm for healthcare. This makes as much sense as
making police and fire protection capitalism based: no protection
unless your credit card is on file along with an adequate credit ceiling.

Physicians are indoctrinated by the pharmaceutical
manufacturers. Physicians know that if they rock the boat they are
open to litigation and to having their licenses suspended. There is
no motive to becoming an outcaste within their own
guilds. Physicians have no idea how to cure any chronic
disease
. This is why it is called chronic. Chronic disease is their
cash cow and there is no motivation to do anything but suppress
competition. It is a rare physician who can wrest himself/herself
away from their indoctrination to effectively treat a family member.

Scientists care about their next grant or their next contract. That
is what they do. Their research is extremely reductionist and they
would have no idea what to do to treat a family member. I have
participated in thousands of meetings, conferences, and dinners with
molecular biologists, biochemists, cell biologists, and
physician-researche rs. The conversations are mostly technical or
about stock value. If the topic of nutriceuticals comes up then
attitudes often become dismissive and antagonistic — the same as one
would get from an allopathic clinicians.

Typical attitudes:

“Isaiah J. Fidler, a senior cancer researcher from M.D. Anderson in
Houston, warns that it is “biologically impossible” for any single
treatment, however successful, to have an impact on every kind of
tumor in every organ of the body.

“Don’t be depressed when you see a paper that says, ‘We cured
cancer,’ ” Fidler advised colleagues attending a medical meeting in
Philadelphia last month. “No, we didn’t. Everybody here will have a
job for years to come.”

and,

“There’s no room in the market for a non-toxic cancer
therapy.” Quote from a V.P. in a MAJOR pharmaceutical company I’d
rather not name.

and,

“Alex Hittle, a top biotech analyst at A.G. Edwards in St. Louis,
indulges in a little gallows humor. “We sometimes joke that when
you’re doing a clinical trial, there are two possible disasters,”
Hittle said. “The first disaster is if you kill people. The second
disaster is if you cure them. The truly good drugs,” he continued,
“are the ones you can use chronically for a long, long time.”

–International Herald Tribune SATURDAY, MARCH 1, 2003

Regulators make their living by going along with the program and
following the law to the nth degree. I have never met one with a
venturesome bone. Those at the top levels know that they can always
have a future as a lobbyist for the pharmaceutical manufacturers.

In 2005 there were 1274 registered pharmaceutical lobbyists in
Washington, D.C. — more than two for every member of Congress. In
2008 a record $189 million-plus was spent on federal lobbying. If
the industry was honest there would be no lobbying of congress and
the FDA. Pharmaceutical manufactures would do their trials, submit
the results, and let the chips fall where they may.

If the pharmaceutical industry was honest there would be no need for
“direct-to-consumer ” advertising, but more is spent on marketing than
on research. It is very effective advertising. Why should the
physician say no to a patient when he already has a closet full of
samples and the drug rep will be more than happy to supply the
physician with more free samples of her wares.

Right now the US is in serious economic difficulty because of a total
lack of banking regulation, a lack of transparency, and a roll back
of progressive taxation that began in 1981. The pharmaceutical
industry has gone down a parallel track. Millions of people have no
healthcare. The industry as a whole does not want any cure for
anything — only more expensive treatments that are incrementally
better, and of course the industry wants more discomforts and social
problems that can be portrayed as problems in need of pharmaceutical attention.

Karl, the whole industry is money driven. If the Obama team worked
out a financial algorithm that was based on preventing and curing
chronic diseases for even greater profits for the industry, and
failure was punished with ignominy and fines, we would see the end of
virtually all chronic disease.

The whole medical industry makes its living by convincing their
potential customers that they just want to help. Are they all
crooks? Not at all. They are simply doing what is legal, or what
they can get away with, or what they are told to do. Of course the
morality of this is a very different matter.

Karl, I hope you study more and reflect more on these issues. As you
are an intelligent person you might help the country and the world
find a better paradigm.

turmeric – more effective when cooked

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on March 16, 2009


I can’t find the research that is supposed to support this contention – that turmeric is more effective when cooked (for about 8 minutes) but I did find this excellent source of information on turmeric

arthritis and CMO

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on March 16, 2009


  1. Joint degeneration can be repaired with Cetyl Myristoleate which relines the joint surfaces, and then Hyaluronic Acid when taken as prescribed will lubricate the joint, I have done it with my right knee – from limping – then crutches to pain free. With the CMO there are support remedies to take concurrently – the Deihl web site gives the details.

    Myristoleate

    From the family of the Discoverer.
    Diehl quality, low prices from EHP.

one cancer patient’s advice to another

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on March 16, 2009


Whether or not you continue on with the chemo, (assuming you had an operation to remove the tumor) take the following steps:

1. Follow a cancer diet very closely. Do not eat meat, sugar, dairy, peanut butter, refined foods, fried foods, bad oils, etc!

2. Immediately start taking supplements that will block the spread of cancer (angiogenesis) . I’m not sure of the best, but I’ve heard that modified citrus pectin is very good in this regard.

3. If you are taking any iron and/or copper supplements, stop those immediately.

If you choose to take chemo, I would push very hard to see if your doctor would allow you to get glutathione injections along with the chemo to block the damage that can be done by oxaliplatin. I suffered severe damage from oxaliplatin, and kick myself daily for not being more obnoxious in terms of harassing the doctor about glutathione injections. There are several scientific studies on the web discussing the benefits of glutathione injections along with oxaliplatin.

If you choose not to do chemo, then there are, of course, many other recommendations on this (and similar boards). Stay with the anti cancer diet and consider adding the following:

artemisinin — especially effective on gastric intestinal cancers due to their high iron content.

Low Dose Naltrexone

Carrot and other veggie juices

Oleander extract (Sutherlandia OPC)

Immune system boosters such as beta glucan, ABM mushroom capsules, and/or possibly mixed mushroom capsules (oleander is also animmune system booster).

Flaxseed oil / cottage cheese. See the Budwig newsgroup on how to make this — there is also a video on Youtube on how to make it.

Pancreatic enzymes — read up on Dr. Kelley’s view of cancer and how to heal it with pancreatic enzymes — very interesting!

You may also consider Paw Paw if you want to do a low ATP protocol. Using Paw Paw will mean you have to cut out some of the other supplements possibly — do some research on Paw Paw and see which other supplements should be left out.

Liver / gall bladder flushes

Enemas, including coffee enemas. (When you are fully healed from any operations to the intestinal tract.

Exercise in moderation — consider a rebounder. I think Walmart has them for as low as $35.

Address the emotional issues involved with your cancer. If you hate your life, odds are much steeper that you will not recover. You may be forced to fix your life, and to find (or re-find) your spiritual nature. Endorphins kill cancer!!! Endorphins are blocked when you hate your life, hate other people, and/or hate God. Yes, it is easy to have a lot of despair and to hate God when you get cancer. Let go of hate, and let the love in. If people cannot be supportive of you, you will have to let them go, but without hating them.

And research, research, research to the degree that you can.

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

“I work with cancer patients and found this book incredible helful to them (and me and my work colleagues).”

Chemo drugs promote cancer?

Posted by Jonathan Chamberlain on March 16, 2009


http://www.fightingcancer.com news

Do anti-angiogenetic drugs  (drugs such as Avastin and Erbitux that work by attacking the blood supply surrounding tumours) actually promote the spread of cancer? Recent research suggests this is the case, as Ralph Moss reports at http://www.cancerdecisions.com/031509.html
