Alternative Cancer Remedies
be taken to bowel tolerance. This means you can take as much as you can, until you begin to have diarrhea. When the body tissues reach saturation on C, the remainder of this water-soluble vitamin is sent into the bowel, which reacts to the acidity by somewhat runny bowels till the C is gone. Take large doses of 5,000 mg or more a day. It is the most powerful antitoxin known, and can neutral- ize or minimize the damaging effect of most chemi- cal carcinogens entering your body from the air, water, or food.
Cancer of the bladder can occur when the
amino acid, tryptophan, is not properly metabo- lized, resulting in oxidation of its metabolites. Vitamin C prevents that oxidation process, and thus blocks cancer development. It is a preventa- tive agent against a variety of cancers (Journal of the National Cancer Institute, 73, 1984).
Vitamin C is such a potent cancer fighter,
that it is well to here provide additional informa- tion: Deficiency symptoms include slow wound healing, pain in joints, immune suppression, bleed- ing gums, irritability, and increased risk of can- cer. If you take too much at a time, it will cause mild diarrhea within 30 minutes. Intake: RDA: 60 mg. Usual U.S.: 114 mg. Prophylactic: 500-2000 mg. Therapeutic: 500-100,000 mg.
Taken in larger doses, Vitamins A and C
inhibit hyaluronidase, an enzyme found in can- cerous tissues.
Vitamins A, C, and E are antioxidants. When
accompanied by the minerals, selenium and zinc, they help protect against malignancies.
Low serum levels of vitamins A and E were
common in patients receiving, and responding poorly to, chemotherapy. The great danger in us- ing chemotherapy and radiation is the damage, introduction of poisonous conditions, and destruc- tion of anti-cancer vitamins.
Vitamin C and beta-carotene (pre-vitamin
have been found to be effective in reversing cer-
vical dysplasia and oral leukoplakia in humans.
Vitamins C and K separately showed anti-
tumor activity against human cancer cells in vitro, but became syergistically effective at 2% the regu- lar dosage when used together.
A substance in vitamin D, known as 1,25
dihydroxycholecalciferol has been discovered to be an anti-cancer factor. But, due to toxicity of vi- tamin D overdose, it must be used only under the care of a professional. For most of us, it is best to avoid using too much vitamin D, although some is needed. Sunshine is the best source. (Fish oils can cause heart trouble.)
Vitamin E, working with C, inhibits the ac-
tivity of a growth substance (catalyst) found in can-
cerous tissue. Take up to 1,000 units a day. Vita- mins C and E help the body inhibit the activity of the enzyme, hyaluronidase, found in cancerous tis- sue.
A lack of beta-carotene (pro-vitamin A),
vitamin E, and B complex in lung tissue may be related to lung cancer.
Injections of vitamin E, beta-carotene,
canthaxanthin (a carotenoid), and algae extract dramatically bolstered levels of tumor necrosis fac- tor alpha, and reversed hamster buccal pouch tu- mors.
Human prostatic cancer cells in vitro were
markedly reduced when vitamin E was added. It helps protect against bowel cancer (Journal of the National Cancer Institute, 73, 1984).
Vitamin F is the essential fatty acid. Add 1
tablespoon of cold-pressed vegetable oil to each food meal (not juice-only meals). Wheat germ oil and flaxseed oil are the best. Corn oil and soy oil are second best. Safflower oil is not so good. Make sure the oil is fresh and kept refrigerated when not in use. Never use cottonseed oil (it can cause blindness), hydrogenated oils, lard, greases, or ani- mal products. The oil in the nuts is good, if the nuts are fresh.
Vitamin K helps protect the body against
certain cancer-causing substances. Take it with vi- tamin C, to increase its cancer-reducing strength.
Quercetin (one of the bioflavonoids which,
together, are called vitamin P) increased the cell- kill rate in cancer cells which were exposed to hy- perthermia (heat therapy) with no negative effect on normal healthy cells.
Quercetin reduced cancers in animals ex-
posed to two carcinogens.
A Cancer Control Convention, meeting in Ja-
pan, reported that the trace mineral, germanium, in the diet is a significant factor in preventing and eliminating cancer.
One cancer researcher, who studied in-depth
into cancer remedies over the past 150 years, de- clared that every effective anti-cancer formula (Glyoxylide, which is the Koch treatment; the Hoxsey herbs; Hypotonic therapy; laetrile; the Gerson method; Krebiozen; and Carcalon) involves extra amounts of potassium. This is very impor- tant.
Be sure to include a significantly higher in-
take of potassium. Potassium deficiency is con- sidered by Gerson, Scott, and others as a primary contributing cause of cancer.
Potassium foods include almonds, apples,
