THE RICHARDSON DIET AND THERAPY
Dr. John Richardson has learned that the ad- ministration of laetrile alone is not adequate to keep cancer from returning soon. Here is the diet which, over a period of years, he gradually worked out. It is routinely prescribed at the Richardson Clinic for all his cancer patients. Here is the diet and laetrile therapy pre- scribed by Dr. Richardson: “1. THE DIET—Principally fresh fruits, veg- etables, seeds, nuts, and grains. All animal pro- tein, including dairy products, is excluded. “2. TOBACCO, ALCOHOL, and COFFEE are not to be used. “3. LAETRILE (Vitamin B17) INJECTIONS— “First month: I.V. injections, 6-9 gms or more; 1 per day for 20 days. “Second month: I.V. or I.M. injections, 3 gms; 3 per week for 4 weeks. “Third month: I.V. or I.M. injections, 3 gms; 2 per week for 4 weeks. “Fourth to Eighteenth Month: I.V. or I.M. in- jections, 3 gms; 1 per week for one to one and a half years or longer. “4. LAETRILE (Vitamin B17) TABLETS—One to four 500 mg. tablets are taken on the days the patient is not receiving an injection of la- etrile. Two tablets per day is the usual dosage during the first year. Most patients will continue taking tablets for the rest of their lives. Some will use 100 mg tablets and supplement with apricot kernels. The kernel must be taken at a different time during the day than laetrile tab- lets. “5. PANCREATIC ENZYME TABLETS—Two to four tablets, four times daily. “6. VITAMIN B15 (PANGAMIC ACID)—50 mg, three times daily. “7. VITAMIN C—750 mg to 2,000 mg daily. “8. AMINO ACID TABLETS (Ag/Pro)— Three to nine tablets daily, to compensate for reduced intake of animal protein. “9. CHELATED MINERALS—Dosage de- pends upon the type and extent of deficiency revealed by hair analysis. “10. THERAPEUTIC VITAMINS AND MINER-
ALS (Supergran)—One or two grams daily.
“11. VITAMIN E—800 I.U. to 1,2000 I.U. daily. “12. LIQUID PROTEIN—Two to four table- spoons daily. This protein is in a “predigested” form, providing basic amino acids that do not require the action of pancreatic enzymes for their use by the body. (This is used by those patients who are not taking Ag/Pro tablets.)
“13. ADDITIONAL VITAMINS AND MINER- ALS—to be recommended where necessary in special cases.”—John A. Richardson, M.D., and Patricia Griffin, R.N., Laetrile Case His- tories, 123-125 (1977).
Enzymes are usually added to the regimen, fol- lowing the theory of Krebs, Jr. (1970), and Beard (1911), that the pancreatic enzymes (trypsin and Chymotrypsin) are intrinsic anti-cancer factors. To free these enzymes to kill cancer cells, laetrilists advise their patients to eat only small amounts of animal protein or, better yet, none at all. They ad- vise them to eat large amounts of fresh fruits and vegetables.
THE KOWAN DIET
Researchers, in working with their patients, will find the following information to be very help- ful. It comes from Maurice H. Kowan, M.D., a Cali- fornia physician who administered laetrile to his patients for quite some time. This is the accompanying diet which Dr. Kowan prescribes to his patients taking laetrile: “To be most effective, laetrile should be com- bined with proper diet and hygienic care. The ideal diet would be one with a low protein in- take. This is based on the fact that cancer cells must have complete proteins in the diet in or- der to survive and multiply. Therefore, to se- cure the best and most rapid results with la- etrile therapy, it is essential to eliminate entirely, for some time, all animal products, such as meat, fish, fowl, eggs, and cheese. “The general diet should consist of salt-free, non-processed foods, free from carcinogenic additives. Lightly cooked—but not canned— foods are permitted. Recommended foods are: kafir milk and buttermilk; oatmeal, buckwheat, millet, and brown rice; fat-free raw milk (one pint maximum daily); soups; vegetables, includ- ing potatoes and raw salads as tolerated; raw fresh fruit and vegetable juices, extracted with a pressure (not centrifugal) juicer; raw or cooked fruit; raw nuts and nut butters, espe- cially almonds. “Another help in the absorption of the malig- nant tissue is the consumption of several 8- ounce glasses of fresh raw juices, drunk within
