Alternative Cancer Treatment

Alternative Cancer Treatment

This post is meant for information only. It is not a complete account of alternative cancer treatment, nor is it necessarily accurate.  It is not advised that you begin a treatment for cancer or anything else on the basis of what is written here.

Alternative Cancer Treatment is not promoted by many doctors, though there are some intelligent and intuitive doctors about, for sure, who would not dismiss the idea of alternative cancer treatment.

Many doctors in the medical profession are true ‘healers’, because they really do understand why and how cancer exists, and understand something of the detoxification and nutrition factors which are involved in bringing sick  people back to health.

In New Zealand, we had our own Dr Eva Hill in the early part of the 19th century.  Dr Hill  was a true healer who cured many people,  in New Zealand and abroad, of serious diseases like cancer through natural medicine.  She used herbs,  nutrition, detoxification and meditation techniques.

Walter Last, an Austrian physicist who worked many years in New Zealand before moving to Australia, also has cured many people of cancer and other degenerative disease. Dr Ann Wigmore, an American, is another famous doctor who learned how to treat cancer naturally:  she had had cancer herself, and recovered, adapting her own version of therapy from the ideas of  Dr Max Gerson.    Dr Max Gerson, another  American,  was another  such brilliant doctor:  His life’s work was devoted to helping people with cancer and other degenerative disease.    Dr Gerson’s book on cancer has helped many people, including myself, to recover from disease.  More on Dr Gerson and his book later in this post. Now:

Why haven’t  we got a ‘cure’ for cancer? For a start, the drug companies, which really are the influencing force behind most practising doctors, and most medical schools, do not wish to promote natural cures of any kind, as these will only interfere with the sale of their drugs, and their profits, unless they can take charge of the ‘natural cure’. In most cases, that is nigh impossible, as ‘nature cures’ are very hard work, and require an exceptional determination and perseverance on the part of the  patient, which means that ‘the cure’ cannot  really be bought.

The other reason is that people are very lazy, and do not want to put the hard yards in to get their health back.  They believe that they have been targeted unfairly in that they have ‘got’ cancer.  They, in most cases, want to believe that the physician has  all the answers with his drugs, chemotherapy, and radiation  for cancer.  They don’t want to hear about the environment, how it has become polluted through our own stupid fault, and that we should ALL be changing our lifestyles for clean,  more fairly run, honest and healthy agricultural communities.  No –  most of us  don’t want to think about the extent of it, or make radical changes when we get cancer.   All most people want to do is carry right on doing what they are doing,  succumb to the advice and the treatment by the physician, take their medicine,  and hope for the best.

So we must take some of the responsibility for this stupidity ourselves.  It is not just the drug companies who are at fault here.  They simply are profitting from people’s laziness:  they fit  into the scheme of things because people want to take the easy way out:  by using weedkiller to kill the weeds instead of pulling them out;  and by taking drugs when they get sick, even if they don’t do the trick.

Dr Samuel Epstein, in ‘The Politics of Cancer’, gives many instances of drug companies controlling and monopolizing the ‘healing’ world, and healers themselves,  by putting people out of business, and banning certain products and activities, because they pose a threat to their dragnet of wealth gained from the sale  of pharmaceuticals all over the world.

Whenever a herb or some other remedy  looks as if it might be effective in treating a condition,  then drug companies are the first to step in to try and patent it, or get it prohibited so that the public do not have access to it anymore.  Such an example is  the case with turmeric, and comfrey, or ‘knit-bone’, both of which are powerful healers.  Comfrey, unfortunately, is banned in most western countries now, but turmeric has had abetter fate, because, as it is an important food item in India, it has just managed to escape the hungry mouth of the drug companies  turmeric tiger which wanted to patent it for their own profit.

Drug companies have been known to shut down  the practices of doctors or naturopaths, or other healers who have been successful in treating cancer.  Some famous practitioners have even been thrown in jail and their successes denied, through the actions of jealous drug companies.

I have just found a very important book on the subject of cancer.  It is called ‘The Cancer Conspiracy’, written by Dr Toni Jeffreys PhD, published by Crows Nest Books, P.O. Box 607, Warkworth, New Zealand 1241.  This edition is 2000, although there is an added note in the book which says a further edition will come out shortly.

This is such a great book.  It is well researched, right on the mark, and written with great heart.

Dr Jeffreys has a similar view to Dr Epstein in that she does not have too much respect for modern day medicine, which seems to be linked so strongly, like glue, to the drug manufacturers.

Dr Jeffreys parallels the drug-making machinations to those of the tobacco industry.  It has taken literally decades for the tobacco companies to finally come clean, when they knew all along that smoking caused lung disease, including cancer.  The ‘research’ they did never targeted real issues of health, and were rigged to show favourable results for the tobacco industry.

It is the same scenario now with the problem of cancer:  We are forever being led down wrong trails under the name of research, simply because the drug companies, who are the richest organizations in the world, do not want anyone to find a cure, or point out that the cause of cancer is actually inherent in our sick,  industrialized society. 

Cancer is a microscosmic  symptom of  the vast and wide macrocosmic sickness and disfunction which we ourselves have created.

So it goes on.  Money is continually poured into ‘research’, which only serves the purposes of the drug companies, because they decide exactly what things they want to do their research on.  Of course, they don’t choose to spend their research money on the obvious  thing which really would help people and the enrvironment – the cause of sickness – as making people well would not bring them in their money. The whole medical and drug hierarchy relies  on people being unwell, and being reliant on their drugs.

The big business of chemical production and sales begins with the very food we eat.  It is sprayed many times with chemicals which are often made by the same chemical companies, or associated chemical companies, which produce the drugs further down the track, to ‘treat’ us once we have become ill from consuming their pesticides and herbicides.

Alternative Cancer Treatment which Has Worked in Many Cases:

I am really pleased and excited to see Doctor Jeffreys  talk about the Gerson programme of alternative cancer therapy, and the Gerson history:   Dr Max Gerson literally cured thousands of people  of cancer and other disease during his working life.  Of course, not everybody survived, but many did live to tell the tale.

Dr Max Gerson is one of those doctors who was literally hounded by the FDA, pushed on  by the dug companies of his era.  Dr Gerson was  eventually forbidden to practice in America, and was chased away, out of the USA.  He set up a clinic for treating cancer and other degenerative disease in Mexico, which is  still being run,  by his daughter, today.

You can contact the Gerson Institute in Bonita, Califormia, or the Gerson Research Institute in San Diego, California for more information regarding treatment at a Gerson clinic.  Or you can buy the book to  read about his amazing success rates, and gain an insight into just how his treatment works,  basically, through  detoxification  methods and nutrition.

I have described elements of the therapy  which I have found helpful in many posts on this site, but I do recommend that you read the entire book.

Read merrilyn’s other related posts entitled:   Benefits of Castor OilRegrow Teeth;   Regrow Hair;   Detox Diets;   Prevent Cancer;    and Cancer/Post for Anthony for a little insight into just how detoxification and nutrition  can benefit health.

Dr Max Gerson’s famous book entitled A Cancer Therapy:  Results of Fifty Cases,  Station Hill Press, was reissued in 1997.

Dr Toni Jeffreys also talks about the natural treatments of  John Hoxsey and his son Harry Hoxsey, who were famous for their health advice and herbs which they freely gave away.   The Hoxseys were  alternative healers  who were also forced to give up the  practice practice of healing naturally. They were brought to eventual ruin, and the elder Hoxsey was thrown in jail.  A Hoxsey clinic still survives in Mexico, but this is the only place where you can take advantage of the Hoxsey healing herbs.

Diet And Detox For Cancer Programme for Anthony

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.

7.15am Shower.

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.

more tomorrow
