Diet and Detox For Cancer: Dear Anthony, Your dear sister whom I saw in Wellington has just told me that you have terminal cancer and that you cannot be helped any more by conventional medicine. I am sorry to hear that you are unwell.
You might feel that there is no hope left for your recovery. However, I would like to urge you to at least consider the possibility of beginning a treatment which could save your life. It requires much perseverance and requires you to be consistent with the routines, but apart from the routine nature of it all, it is really quite simple to do if you can put all other worries aside and just get on with it.
First, you need the support of at least one person, family or friend, so that you can devote yourself entirely to the business of detoxifying and getting well. I understand you have that support, so that’s a wonderful start.
Jacqui Davison had terminal cancer and was given only days to live. She had the support of her daughter whose house she was living in at the time. Her daughter persuaded her to begin the Gerson treatment for cancer. The main components of this treatment are enemas and castor oil. Enemas are taken several times a day, the castor oil you take every second day, 2 tablespoons in one dose after breakfast. Juices and raw foods are the other component, with a big plate of oatmeal porrridge at breakfast being the only cooked food you eat for some time. This is eaten with one grated raw apple.
Basically, this is a modified version of Gerson’s approach. I have drawn also from the teachings of Dr Ann Wigmore, Walter Last, Dr Eva Hill and Jacqui’s book and my own experiences to formulate a programme which I have found to be do-able. See if you can begin right away, as Jacqui did when she was told she was soon to die. She recovered completely. Read the other posts I have up on cancer, one called ‘Ridding the Body of Cancer’, one ‘Avoiding Cancer’.
Here is a programme I have worked out for you. I will give you more information tomorrow, but hope to get the basics of the programme posted up today:
7.00am Enema – half a teaspoon of sea salt in 1 litre warm water. The chemist shop in the mall at Karori will get you in an enema device. The idea is to repeat the wash-out several times until the water expelled is clear. After the first rinse, you can use more water in one wash-out – up to 3 pints in one rinse is a safe amount to use, after the first, initial rinse-out. The maxim is generally that if it is comfortable, then you can gradually increase the amount of water from the initial litre. With the first rinse-out, stop as soon as you feel any pressure – expel, and start again.
In the Higginson pack, which the Karori pharmacy will order for you, you will find two white tubes. Use the longer one, as the water needs to reach the lower colon in order to thoroughly cleanse the intestine. It is important to lie flat, or on one side for the water to be able to wash through the intestine.
7.30am Have a glass of freshly juiced apple or carrot juice or a mixture of your choice.
7.45am Do the Rejuvenation breathing excercises which I have outlined under the post ‘Maximize your Prana Intake’. This routine only take 10 minutes. It is an extremely healing routine, as it helps to oxygenate the body whilst creating a peaceful state of mind. Easy to do – simply stand facing north with hands on the ribs. 10 deep breaths to start, then a couple of other variations and the routine is complete.
8.00am Another juice of either carrot, apple, beetroot or a combination. Follow this with a large bowl of porridge – about a cup of oats made the usual way. Grate one whole organic apple over the top and eat the lot, as is, without milk or sugar. A few dates could be added for sweetening, but nothing else. After a few weeks, olive oil can be added, but try to keep the diet very simple for the next three weeks.
9.00am Have a glass of apple, carrot, or a mixture of beetroot and apple juice, freshly juiced.
10.00am Another juice. Then take two tablespoons of castor oil followed by a cup of black coffee. Brew the coffee over the stove – about a heaped tablespoonful coffee grounds simmered for a couple of minutes or so in two and a half cups water. This coffee is not designed to be a treat – the caffeine in the coffee is employed to hurry up the liver in expelling poisons from the body, and to maximize the effect of the castor oil. Swallow one warm cupful immediately upon swallowing the castor oil. Save the remains to use as a coffee enema later. (coffee enemas are useful in alleviating pain)
Take a cup of peppermint tea or chamomile tea after the castor oil and coffee to help reduce nausea. Initially, you will feel very nauseous as the toxins from the liver are expelled, but this feeling dissipates the longer you continue with the castor oil/coffee treatment. This is because the toxins held inside the body become less and less with every passing day of continued treatment, so that there are less toxins to make you feel unwell. When you start to notice that you are not feeling so ill after taking the castor oil and coffee, then you know that you are succeeding. To help rid the feeling of nausea in the early stages of treatment, I found an enema to be necessary within an hour after taking the castor oil.
11.00am Take another juice.
12.00 noon. Rejuvenation Breathing Exercises again – 10 rounds followed by the sequence outlined in ‘Maximize Your Prana Intake’ post.
12.15 Another juice followed by a very large salad made up of any green vegetables such as lettuce, celery, rocket, parsley. Use plenty of freshly sprouted mung beans, alfalfa and other sprouts as the basis for the salad if you can. Sprouted beans and seeds supply the body with protein and are at the same time great detoxifyers which help the body stay alkaline.
Grate a beetroot and a carrot into the salad for variety.
1.00pm Another freshly juiced drink
Do 20 minutes to half an hour of ‘Yoga Nidra’ which is a deep relaxtion exercise based on age-old yoga practice. Look up the post I have on ‘Yoga Nidra”. It is very simple. Once you get the hang of it, you will be able to relax the body and mind easily at will. Practice is the key factor. Do it EVERY DAY after lunch. From now on, you have to let all distractions in your life go. Keep up the routine vigilantly until you are well. Social arrangements at the moment should be secondary to your treatment.
2.00pm Another freshly juiced drink. Eat some fresh raw fruit if you are hungry.
3.00pm Another freshly juiced drink. A cup of chamomile tea or another herbal combination could be taken for afternoon tea. Fresh fruit if you are hungry.
Take another enema – one litre warm water with a half teaspoon of sea salt. Do not use table salt as this has chemicals to make it ‘free flow’ which interfere with the body’s healing mechanism.
An enema within five hours of taking the castor oil is IMPERATIVE, especially in the first few months of treatment, as the toxins being expelled from the liver and other organs will be at a dangerous level. With time, as the body expels them, there will be less chance of auto-intoxication from the reabsorption of toxins in the bowel, as there will be fewer toxins to expel. This is why you feel less sick after the castor oil in time, as there are fewer toxins to make you feel sick after several months of treatment.
4.00pm Another fresh juice.
5.00pm Another fresh juice.
Do the Rejuvenation exercises for maximizing prana intake again
6.00pm Another fresh juice followed by another large salad with lots of mung bean and alfalfa sprouts.. Fruit if you are hungry.
Take another enema before bed. If you use a coffee enema, hold in for 10 minutes if you can. Then expel. Then rinse out bowel with warm water.
10.00pm Try to be in bed by ten so that you can do some positive reading and listen to soothing music. Get into spiritual books. Meditate. Pray. Do the breathing exercise for bed which is listed in my article on breathing exercises and sleeping well.
