Alternate Cancer Remedies

infections, joint problems, fungal infections, leg ulcers, infected or poorly healing wounds, and burns. Professional help is needed when ozone is taken internally.
Flaxseed Oil—If you cannot obtain it at your health-food store, here are addresses for ordering it direct (it might even be fresher ordered direct): Omega Nutrition, 5373 Guide Meridian, Bldg. B, Bellingham, WA 98226 Ph: 800-661-3529. Keeps unopened in freezer up to 6 months, and in refrig- erator 3 months. After opening, keep it no longer than three weeks. / One of the best flaxseed manu- facturers is Barlean’s high lignan Flax Oil, 4936 Lake Terrell Rd., Ferndale, WA 98248
Keep in mind that adverse effects associ- ated with intravenous ozone have been reported to include phlebitis (inflammation of a vein), cir- culatory depression, chest pain, shortness of breath, fainting, coughing, flushing, cardiac arrhythmias, and gas embolus (bubbles). Rectal administration can lead to inflammation of the lower intestinal tract. Although easily tolerated in other tissues, in high concentrations ozone causes inflammation of the lung tissue.

Obviously, there are other alternative can- cer remedies which are less problematic.
Note to researchers: Ozone therapy combines inexpensive- ness and effectiveness. In this day of high-priced medications, surely ozone demands careful analysis by researchers.
Working Summary: Combined with proper diet and other lifestyle changes, ozone therapy can be used against cancer. How- ever, other forms of oxygen therapy (hydrogen peroxide and hy- perbaric chambers) are more frequently used.
About one-fifth of the air you breathe is oxy- gen in its two-atom form (O2). Ozone (O3) contains three oxygen atoms and is a less stable form. Be- cause of the added oxygen molecule, it more quickly enters into reactions in the body to oxi- dize other chemicals. During this process, the ex- tra oxygen molecule breaks away, leaving a nor- mal O2 molecule. This increases the oxygen con- tent of the blood or tissues. For this reason, ozone therapy involves both oxygenation therapy and oxi- dation therapy.
Careful laboratory research by Dr. F. Sweet and his associates has shone that human lung, breast, and uterine cancer cells are inhibited by ozone (F. Sweet, M. Ka, and S. Lee, “Ozone Selectively Inhibits Growth of Cancer Cells,” Science, 2009 (72) 931, 1990). Yet ozone therapy, as an alterna- tive remedy for cancer, is still in its formative stages. We should not place reliance on it yet.
Jonathan Wright, M.D., of Kent, Washington, finds ozone very effective against a number of dis- eases, when combined with dietary changes and high doses of intravenous ascorbate (a form of vi- tamin C). He says that vitamin C must be given with any oxidative therapy, in order to prevent uncontrolled oxidation which is detrimental to the body.
It should be noted that ozone therapy is not used in the treatment of cancer, as much as it is used for other diseased conditions (such as inflammatory infections, arterial circulatory prob- lems, allergic diseases, arthritis, hepatitis, herpes

Note to researchers: Each of these alternative remedial agents should be carefully investigated in both laboratory and field test settings.
In addition to other alternative cancer re- search and claims, a number of other thera- pies have also appeared.
A crucial pattern, frequently observed in some, is that claims are made that success will be ob- tained by taking one substance (taxol, etc.) or a narrowed diet (macrobiotics, etc.). But such a pro- gram cannot provide the best likelihood of suc- cess.
Actually, programs which require a wide change from an unhealthful to more healthful diet and way of life—produce the most favorable re- sults. Why gamble on something narrowed, when you can have something broader?
Maitake—this is a mushroom from the Ori- ent, which contains a substance that prevents car- cinogenesis and inhibits the growth of cancerous tumors. It also helps the body adapt to the stress of cancer treatments such as chemotherapy. Shiitake and reishi mushrooms have valuable im- mune-boosting and anti-tumor properties. It is of interest that the Gerson Institute, and certain other cancer therapists, have said not to eat fungus if you have cancer; this is what mushrooms are.
Mayapple—One example was the mayapple (Podophyllum peltatum). The Penobscot Indians long used this plant as a folk remedy for cancer. It was even mentioned in an 1849 medical book. But was then forgotten for over a century.
