CANCER AND ALTERNATIVE THERAPIES
by Dr. Lawrence Wilson
© June 2022, LD Wilson Consultants, Inc.
All information in this article is solely the opinion of the author and for educational purposes only. It is not for the diagnosis, treatment, prescription or cure of any disease or health condition.
UPDATE 6/12/22. AVOID two therapies for cancer: intravenous or high-dose vitamin C and IPT or insulin potentiation therapy, also called low-dose chemotherapy. These therapies work for a year or so, and then they stop working and it is very difficult to get your health back, so the patient dies.
Also, we just found out that physicians who offer the Kelley metabolic cancer therapy alter the therapy and it is not working as well. Stay away.
UPDATE 12/7/19. Anyone with cancer needs to add the following to their program:
- Extra EPA-DHA. A few brands such as Spectrum Naturals, Barleans, Endomet and Nature-Made are okay, but we do NOT recommend Nordic Naturals or Carlson. These brands do not seem to work as well!
Adults need to take 6 capsules daily of EPA-DHA or 3-4 cans of sardines weekly and 3 EPA-DHA capsules.
- Peau d’arco tea. This is very important. We like the tea offered by www.taheebo-tea.com. Follow the preparation instructions that come with it or pressure-cook it for 26 seconds.
Traditional Medicinals brand is also okay, but more costly. Use two teabags with each cup if you use this brand. Drink 4 cups every day.
1. Development programs are not intended as diagnosis, prescription, treatment or cure for any disease, mental or physical.
2. A standard development program alone is not sufficient to correct most cases of cancer. Therefore, when working with cancer, one must modify the program, as described below.
1. We recommend avoiding the ketogenic diet if one has cancer. It is a short-term solution only and depletes the body because one cannot have most cooked vegetables on the ketogenic diet.
2. Avoid intermittent fasting if you have a cancer diagnosis. You cannot eat enough cooked vegetables if you are doing intermittent fasting.
3. A lot of the black salve on the market now does not work. Be sure to use only the brands recommended in this article.
4. Never use black salve internally more than once every few weeks, and a tiny amount only. Some false healers are advising using it more often and this is very irritating. Never do this!
5. At this time (2022), hospitals in the Western nations are not safe places. We would avoid going to them for any reason, if at all possible.
Also, in America, Under The Affordable Care Act of 2010, one might be arrested for not following doctor’s orders. So until it is repealed, (I hope soon), be careful with doctors and hospitals.

WHAT IS CANCER?
In 1902, John Beard, MD, a brilliant embryologist, wrote a book entitled,The Trophoblast Theory Of Cancer. He wrote that cancer is trophoblast tissue that arises in the wrong place and at the wrong time. This theory has never been disproven.
The word trophoblast from the Latin language means to nourish the baby. The trophoblast is a specialized cell type that is part of a fertilized egg and sperm. In other words, it is part of an unborn child.
The way that it nourishes the baby is to aggressively invade the body of the mother. It literally steals blood and nutrients and gives them to the growing child.
IS CANCER GENETIC?
Yes, but not in the way that people think. Some doctors run genetic tests and they tell you you have “cancer genes” and you are more likely to get cancer. We don't agree with this concept because a lot of the reason for cancer is environmental and dietary, not genetic.
However, cancer is genetic in the sense that the trophoblast is definitely programmed as part of the reproductive system of every human being. In this sense, cancer is genetic.
The problem occurs when the trophoblast DNA or chromosome “turns on” at the wrong time. Then the trophoblast is not used to make a baby. It just invades the body and destroys it. This is called cancer.
The HCG blood test. In fact, a well-known cancer blood test is to check the level of human chorionic gonadotropin. Guess what human tissue secretes this hormone – the trophoblast! It is the same test as the common pregnancy test, which is also a test for the presence of trophoblast.
What should happen to the trophoblast? After 8-12 weeks of pregnancy, the baby grows another tissue that does a better job of stealing blood and nutrients from the mother. This is called the placenta.
As the placenta grows, enzymes from the baby’s pancreas destroy the trophoblast, which has completed its job. This is important because one can take pancreatic enzymes to destroy trophoblast.
The critical period. The transition – from trophoblast nourishment to placental nourishment - is called the critical period of pregnancy. It is a difficult transition for some unborn babies. If it fails, the baby dies and a miscarriage occurs. This is when most miscarriages of pregnancy occur.
The critical period is exactly like a major inspection on a factory assembly line. If the product, in this case a baby, is too defective, it is destroyed so that the mother and child can start over and hopefully do a better job next time.
The trophoblast outside of pregnancy. After the critical period of pregnancy, the trophoblast should never arise again during a person’s life. Here is how it works.
The totipotent cells. These are cells that can function in many ways in our bodies. Most cells cannot do this, but these can. Everyone has some of them floating around the body.
The problem is that totipotent cells can turn into trophoblast if conditions are right for this to occur.
For example, too much estrogen in the blood is one of the main triggers for totipotent cells to transform into trophoblast. Another trigger is a pH that is too acidic.
This is why cooked vegetables are so important. They are the most powerful method we have found to get rid of both these triggers.
Cancer during pregnancy. Rarely, the trophoblast gets out of control during the first trimester of pregnancy. If this occurs, the pregnant mother often dies of a very invasive cancer, choriocarcinoma, often in a matter of weeks.
In almost all instances, however, various mechanisms control the trophoblast during pregnancy so that it just steals a little nutrition from the mother and does not kill the mother.
Why doesn’t everyone know the trophobast theory of cancer? This theory has withstood many tests, yet one rarely hears about it. We believe that the reason is that if the truth were taught to doctors and the public, cancer would cease to be as much of a problem and most of the cancer “business” would end.
Development programs that are offered through this website use this theory and that is why they are usually effective. For more details about the trophoblast, read The Trophoblast.
THE INCIDENCE OF CANCER
Cancer is a leading cause of death of children in America. It is also the second leading cause of death among adults. It wastes millions of lives and a great deal of money. One of every two Americans will be diagnosed with it, and the cancer rates are similar around the world.
Hidden cancers. Millions more people die as a result of a hidden cancer. This is a cancer that doctors don’t find. However, it is located in a critical area of the body and causes an artery to rupture or a stroke, perhaps, or something else that kills the person. The cause of death is wrongly identified as a stroke or something else because the real cause, cancer, is not easy to find.
Health insurance with cancer. One of the most important possible reasons for having health insurance is a possible future cancer situation. The reason is that cancers are very common.
Cancer therapies, either medical or natural, can be very costly, and you are paying for it in any health insurance. Also, with a natural therapy, one should not work, at least not full time, for at least a year, and this imposes a greater financial burden.
However, health insurance, even Christian sharing programs that we prefer instead of regular insurance, will usually not pay for natural cancer therapy, although it will usually pay for testing.
As a result, we suggest only a catastrophic health insurance policy only. This way you can save more money yourself, in case it is ever needed to handle a cancer situation.
Staying on a complete development program will prevent and heal most cancers, so this is an excellent type of health insurance that costs under $200.00 per month for an adult.
A research report. This article is a research report on our observations as one who is willing to search outside the mainstream medical literature for answers.
A rough way to understand cancer is the following:
1. A death wish. This can be tricky, but it is wise to check what you want in your life. Many people subconsciously or consciously want to get out of this life. Often the reason is rather silly, such as they do not have enough money, or they do not have a mate, or they need to drive an old car. Be sure to correct death wishes if you want to prevent or correct a cancer situation.
2. Root-canal filled teeth. These teeth all become infected, even if you have no symptoms. They then begin to secrete extremely toxic bacterial toxins. If you wish to avoid or heal cancer, have all root-canal filled teeth removed immediately.
3. Not enough omega-3 fatty acids in the body. This is a very important factor that is ignored even by some natural cancer therapies. Everyone needs to eat either 3-4 cans of sardines weekly or you must take a supplement of about 900-1000 mg of EPA and DHA daily. If you have cancer, you must double this amount.
4. A toxic body. Stay away from junk food and toxic exposures to help reduce toxicity. A complete development program is excellent to thoroughly detoxify your body from all toxic chemicals and toxic metals. NOTE: We do not recommend chelation therapy. It is harmful. For details, read Chelation.
Toxins often damage the liver, among other organs, and this leads to high estrogen because the liver is the organ that detoxifies and removes estrogens from the body. This applies to men, as well as to women.
5. Low levels of alkaline reserve minerals. This situation is extremely common! Low levels of the alkaline reserve minerals causes the body to become too acidic, which leads to many dysfunctions, including cancer.
Do not try to cut corners by just taking baking soda or alkaline water to alkalinize the body. It is not good enough. The same is true of raw food diets, fruit and juices, which can all alkalinize the body to some degree. However, these methods are too yin and don’t work well enough for this reason.
The best way to get your alkaline reserve minerals is to eat loads of properly-cooked vegetables with every meal. Just taking mineral pills does not work well because the minerals are not in the right compounds. Drinking a lot of vegetable juices will supply minerals, but juices are extremely yin and this imbalances the body and can also contribute to cancer.
6. Too much fat or oils in the diet. This is common and can happen to those who go on a Weston Price diet. One reason for the problem with too much animal fat is that it all contains some estrogen, which is a major carcinogen. Also, fat and oil are more difficult for the liver to process, and can weaken the liver.
Fast oxidizers need some fat with each meal. Slow oxidizers don’t need much fat or oil in their diets.
7. Low oxygen levels. Cancer does not use oxygen in its metabolism, as do normal cells. Instead, it thrives on sugar. Low oxygen in the body is common, and favors the growth of trophoblast.
Low oxygen levels are due to shallow breathing, bad posture, lung problems, living in cities with little vegetation, and working or living in closed-in, low oxygen environments.
We suggest everyone buy an ozonator/ionizer air purifier and leave it running in your home and perhaps at your office, as well. For details, read Oxygen.
8. Yin bodies. This means cold, upward-moving energy, and “expanded” bodies. Causes for a yin condition include old age, toxicity from any cause, eating sugars and other sweets, eating a lot of raw foods, holding grudges, and the use of alcohol, too much sex, or holding on to negative emotions.
For more on this condition, please read Yin Disease on this website.
9. A lack of development, as we use the word on this website. If one develops, cancer goes away. This is called outgrowing your cancer. Cancer cannot live in a sufficiently developed body.
Development is a genetic process that involves the growth of the subtle energy fields of a person. It also includes the growth of the merkaba.
10. Sugars of all kinds in the diet, including fruit. These foods make the body more yin, deplete nutrient minerals, upset the blood sugar, damage calcium metabolism, and damage the body in many other ways, as well.
11. The emotion of resentment, in particular. We are not sure why this is so, but it is reported in the medical literature. If one wishes to prevent or overcome cancer, let go of all anger and resentment against everyone for everything – no exceptions.
12. Yeast and fungus in the body. This comes from a copper imbalance, primarily. Copper problems result from adrenal and thyroid exhaustion, zinc deficiency, stress, fear, and occasionally from exposure to copper, though this is not that common. A properly-designed development program will correct copper balance.
13. Excessive estrogen in the body. This is related to the trophoblast theory of cancer, discussed above. Estrogens are potent carcinogens. Reasons for high estrogen levels today include:
1. Use of birth control pills and patches, and the birth control IUD (Mirena). Stay far away from these if you wish to avoid or heal cancer.
2. A toxic liver that cannot properly detoxify estrogen.
3. Possibly a compensatory mechanism that could result from adrenal exhaustion.
4. Estrogen-mimicking chemicals used in chemical agriculture, mainly.
5. Elevated copper levels and low zinc levels. Copper and estrogen levels tend to follow one another. Zinc is deficient in the soil, so it is deficient in our food supply, as well. Stress also lowers zinc and often raises copper in the body.
Coffee enemas, red heat lamp saunas, an excellent diet and other measures can help reduce liver toxicity and therefore also reduces liver toxicity and estrogen buildup.
Other imbalances associated with cancer:
- Low omega-3 fatty acids
- Low vitamin D
- Low iodine (almost everyone)
- Low intake of cooked vegetables, especially of the preferred vegetables.
- A need for the energy of the red heat lamp.
- A back shift of the aura – related to low protein in the diet.
1. Quiet and polite, but underneath angry and resentful. This can cause an “emotional” cancer that can be a hormone-related cancer.
2. Pushers. These people run around too much and wear themselves out. They won’t slow down. They activate their sympathetic nervous system too much. As a result, their digestion and their elimination becomes weakened, contributing to illness.
3. Junk food eaters. This is more of a physical tendency, but may be part of a personality pattern, as well. They become very nutritionally depleted, and especially are low in cooked vegetables, leading to mineral and other deficiencies.
WARNING about holistic, alternative, or complementary cancer care. Cancer is usually a tough health condition to work with for anyone. Alternative medical care for cancer is a jungle, and full of problems, in our experience. Many holistic doctors, naturopaths, chiropractors, and others do not have enough experience, or do not know enough to do a good job, in many cases.
If one has a cancer diagnosis, here are options we suggest:
1. A modified development program of the type offered on this website. Note: development programs are not a cancer therapy. They are solely for the reduction of stress and to help develop the body, as we define development on this website. However, as the body develops, cancers tend to go away.
This program must be supervised by one of the Approved Practitioners listed on this website. Also, it must be modified, as explained in the next section of this article.
2. Black salve. This is an ancient native American herbal formula used mainly to remove skin cancers, but it can also help with some internal cancers. We recommend following a complete development in addition to using black salve.
While it can be irritating, black salve usually does an excellent job on skin cancers, in particular. It is also extremely inexpensive and not too toxic. It can remove cancerous and pre-cancerous moles easily, as well as some skin infections.
A book about it is called Cancer Salves by Ingrid Naiman. For much more information about black salve and which brand we recommend (very important), read Black Salve on this website.
MODIFICATIONS TO A DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM WHEN CANCER IS PRESENT
1. Remove all root-canal filled teeth. This is imperative! Have ALL root canal-filled teeth removed as soon as possible. I know this may be costly and drastic, but it can save your life. You would be surprised how toxic most root canal-filled teeth are. The only solution I know of is to have them removed, at once.
2. No red meat or eggs. Avoid red meat and eggs completely for at least six months, or until we say it is okay to add these foods back to the diet. This is primarily because of the high iron content of these foods.
3. No glandular products. Avoid all thyroid and adrenal glandular products, as these might increase estrogen. Renamide or a kidney glandular product is okay, however.
4. Increase your intake of omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) to 2000 mg daily of the combination of EPA and DHA. We like fish oil as the source. This is usually about 6 capsules daily. Do not use Nordic Naturals brand or Carson brands of fish oil. These do not seem to work well.
5. Do 4 coffee enemas daily. With active cancer, you must do two to four coffee enemas daily, and they must be done correctly according to the procedure on this website, and not other procedures. For details, read Coffee Enemas.
6. Use a red heat lamp sauna for at least 1.5 hours and preferably 2 hours daily. With active cancer, you must use a red heat lamp sauna – and no other kind of sauna – for at least one and half hours per day. This means two 45-minutes sessions daily or three 30-minute sessions daily. No exceptions!
7. Deep breathing. Do this every day for at least one hour. It is also superb to bring more oxygen into the body. We recommend the three-part yoga breath described in the Deep Breathing article.
8. Use an ozonator/ionizer air purifier in your bedroom. This is less essential, but very good. To read more about these machines, click here.
To read more about oxygen, please read Oxygen Therapies. However, these are tricky and usually not needed.
9. DO NOT replace dental amalgams when there is an active cancer. Wait until the cancer is in remission. The reason is the mercury removal process releases some mercury into the body. This can flare up the cancer and kill you. Also, never have more silver amalgam dental fillings placed in your mouth, as they are quite toxic.
10. Peau d’arco tea. This is very important. We like tea from the website www.taheebo-tea.com. Traditional Medicinals brand is okay, too, but use two teabags with each cup. Drink 4 cups every day.
11. If you work with one of our Approved Practitioners, we may also recommend other natural methods. These can be a most helpful addition to the program.
12. Amino acids. These are costly, but needed in a few cases for a while. Use only Premier Research Labs Essential Amino Acids – 3-3-3. Do not use other brands of amino acids because they don’t work as well.
There are many alternative cancer therapies. We research them with and for our clients. Most we do not recommend.
They are not good enough and don't work well enough. Some are very harmful such as intravenous vitamin C and low-dose chemotherapy, also called IPT or insuin potentiation therapy.
THERAPIES TO AVOID
The Gerson Therapy. Max Gerson, MD was a wonderful doctor who helped many people between 80 and 100 years ago with a natural cancer regimen. Today, a version of his therapy is offered at a clinic in Mexico, and perhaps elsewhere.
Our reports are that this therapy is not working well today. The reasons may be:
- They recommend a light roast “enema” coffee that is not good.
- It does not include the red lamp sauna and the other procedures we find extremely helpful.
- It does not include peau d'arco tea from www.taheebo-tea.com.
- It does not include extra omega-3 fatty acids that we find are needed.
- It includes too many juices for today’s people. Apple juice is especially bad. They also use too much carrot juice.
- It does not recommend pressure-cooking, which we find very helpful.
To read more about Max Gerson, MD, read The Cancer Pioneers.
Pamela McDougle. We formerly recommended the Kelley metabolic therapy with Pamela McDougle. She is a friend. However, lately I have heard that her therapy is not the same as it was previously and we can no longer recommend it.
Other therapies. At this time, we do NOT recommend most herbs, mushroom therapy, germanium, cesium chloride, MMS, chelation therapy, homeopathy, IV vitamin C, iodine therapy, IPT (or insulin potentiation therapy- very bad. It is also called low-dose chemotherapy), most electrical machines such as Rife frequency generators, raw food diets, IP-6, standard hyperthermia (instead use red lamp sauna hyperthermia, which is safer), vegetarian diets, DIM (although a little is fine), or sodium bicarbonate.
WHY AVOID THESE THERAPIES?
Some of these therapies are toxic. Others, such as IV vitamin C, are very yin. This is quite harmful. It will work for a year or so and then it stops working and it is very difficult to undo the damage.
Conventional cancer therapy – radiation, surgery or drugs - is okay, but often toxic and not that effective in the long run. Its adverse effects are sometimes brutal, and its cost can be very high.
It basically poisons the patient and the cancer, hopefully poisoning the cancer a little more than it poisons the patient.
However, it is all that is permitted today in most hospitals. Doctors that recommend other cancer therapies usually lose their license to practice medicine, so we would not even bother to ask them about alternative therapies.
Conventional medical methods are also often the only therapies that health insurance will pay for, because the insurance industry is heavily controlled by the drug industry. Otherwise, the insurance industry would realize that some natural therapies are 1) as effective or more effective than conventional therapy, 2) have fewer side effects, and 3) are much less costly.
The best conventional therapy. This is often surgery. Surgery is fast and does not leave the patient as poisoned as does chemotherapy and radiation. It can remove a troublesome tumor and this may give the body a chance to do more healing on its own. Problems with surgery are:
1. One gets a lot of anesthesia drugs, and perhaps other drugs, that must later be removed from the body for full healing.
2. Surgery just removes large or life-threatening tumors. It certainly does not heal or rebuild the body. So it should always be combined with a development program that rebuilds health.
Surgery is often not needed if one uses the correct natural therapy. However, it may be very helpful:
1. If a tumor is large and thus difficult to digest and remove naturally.
2. If a tumor is pressing on a vital structure such as an artery or a nerve, and must be removed to save one’s life.
3. If a cancer is possibly growing fast and possibly spreading. In this case, removing a tumor may slow down the disease and give one a much greater chance of overcoming the cancer.
Chemotherapy is quite toxic and its effectiveness varies. We would avoid it if possible. Radiation helps shrink some cancers, but it more toxic and the most difficult to remove from the body.
Combining natural therapies with conventional cancer treatment. This is certainly possible. Development can be done along with conventional cancer therapy. It is certainly better than doing conventional therapy without a natural healing program.
However, keep in mind that chemotherapy and radiation therapy are toxic, the opposite of the goal of development. Therefore, they will interfere with rebuilding and detoxification of the body.
Also, conventional therapies deplete nutrients needed to rebuild the body, and may waste one’s energy and time.

Here are a few keys to success that may not be emphasized enough by some books or practitioners.
1. Get very serious about your healing program. Do not let anything get in the way of it, and do not let it slide away. Also, avoid any doctor you are working with who has a relaxed attitude and does not push you to do your program more seriously and assiduously.
2. If you are working full time, quit or go to half time for at least a year. I know this is a financial burden for some people, but it is essential to do a natural healing program properly. Borrow money if you must, but most people won’t get well while working full time.
3. Don’t try to do your own program. It is not a do-it-yourself situation. It is a very complex disease and there are lots of pitfalls and traps. I know it is not easy to find someone to work with, but this is best.
4. The coffee enemas are absolutely essential. Do not let anyone talk you out of them. I would do 4 per day, and we find a powerful way to do them, and less time-consuming, is 2 back-to-back in the morning, and 2 back-to-back in the afternoon. And I would hold each for half an hour, at least.
5. Ozone is good and inexpensive. Immediately invest in an ozone air purifier. Two companies that make them are Atlas (model 300A or similar) and Breathe Right (model YD-706 or similar). Also, buy an ozone generator to ozonate drinking water. Use them all the time.
6. Do the Pushing Down mental exercise for at least one hour, and preferably two hours daily. I strongly advise this procedure, and no other meditative exercises.
The exercise is simple and very powerful. I credit my own health recovery in large measure to doing this exercise daily, which I still do. For more, please read The Pushing Down Exercise on this website.
7. Rest a lot more. This is primary. Rest will help any healing process. Go to bed by 9:00 PM each night or earlier, nap each afternoon and try to get 10 to 12 hours of sleep daily between these two. The early hours of the evening are the best times for sleeping.
8. Be sure to eat three cups of cooked vegetables three times daily, or more. That is a total of 9 cups of cooked vegetables each day. This is to replenish the alkaline reserve minerals. Do not substitute other methods, such as mineral tablets, mineral liquids, green superfoods, green smoothies, or other methods. They do not work as well, in my experience.
9. Drink about three quarts of quality spring water each day. Do not drink water with meals, however, except to take your supplements. If you cannot afford spring water, the next best water to drink is usually carbon filtered tap water. Be sure to change the filters every six months or more often.
Reverse osmosis water does not hydrate the body well, and does not provide minerals. I would avoid it. Alkaline water will cause positive benefits at first, but not in the long run because it is too yin. I would not use it. Also, avoid other “designer waters”, as a general rule. Read Water For Drinking for more on this subject.
10. Stay happy. Research by the Simontons and other doctors indicates that staying positive is critical for the best success. Here are several ways to do this:
a) Read to understand all you can about your program. It can help you to have faith and confidence in what you are doing and why.
b) Do your best to concentrate on the positive and ignore the negative feelings. This may seem impossible, but is a skill that can be learned. It involves letting go of the negative because you realize it is just “old tapes” playing over and over in your head. After a while, they begin to just fade away.
Also, you will have to ignore negative websites and naysayers that may be found among your family, friends, doctors etc. I do not say to ignore all warning signs, but spending your time with anyone who does not support your program is generally not a good idea.
c) Use methods that help you to stay positive. This might include uplifting books, CDs, inspiring movies, or talking with positive friends. It may also be taking walks in the woods or a park, doing the Pushing Down Exercise, but not others, or any other helpful and healthful activity.
The article on my website entitled Reflections On The Twenty-Third Psalm can also be helpful. This particular affirmation was and is very inspiring for thousands throughout the ages.
d) Think spiritually. This means to know you are more than your physical body. This is what I mean by “think spiritually”. It allows us to have a greater love for the self and for the world as well. Some ways to act spiritually are to go to church, or to read and study high-quality spiritual material. Many opportunities are all around you.
11. Be realistic and grounded. Always keep in touch with your practitioner. Healing cancer is not a do-it-yourself proposition at all. Not all reactions mean you are healing, by any means.
For example, for several years I followed a Natural Hygiene regimen of mostly vegetarian raw food. I developed rashes and other symptoms that I believed were indicators of healing, and others around me agreed.
In fact, I was becoming more ill. It cost me dearly in terms of my health. Fortunately, an acquaintance finally convinced me to quit the regimen. I had surrounded myself with others who thought like me, but the method simply didn’t work, in spite of my best efforts to follow the regimen faithfully.
This is why I only recommend working with someone who has an excellent reputation with cancer patients, not a general type of practitioner. Healing cancer with any approach is challenging, even for a seasoned practitioner. For this reason, I do not work with cancer. It is just not my specialty and I admire those who have made it theirs.
Unrealistic thinking and approaches will get you killed with cancer. I know this warning may sound like it is coming from the American Medical Association, but please be warned. Be open-minded but never rigid, if possible. If you are not succeeding, something has to change. Do not stay with a program if it is obviously not working for you.
Miracles can occur with any healing method. However, they don’t happen that often. So use your common sense at all times when dealing with cancer.
I will mention four factors that are common reasons for failure, so that you can avoid them. These include too much stress, starting too late, the nature of cancer and the inability to follow the program exactly.
1. Stress. For success, you must minimize all activity and stress in your life. You must rest at least 10-12 hours daily. Stress weakens and disturbs the body severely.
Stress can come finances, social conditions, work conditions, family matters or other types of stressful conditions. To be successful, plan to rest a lot for at least a year or two. This will conserve your energy for healing.
2. Failure to follow the program completely and faithfully. This is the most common reason for failure. Here are some reasons this can happen:
a) Altering the program. This is all too common. Doctors or patients often just omit parts of the program, such as coffee enemas. Others try combining programs, often with disastrous results. Others alter a few items, such as the diet, because they are afraid or have read something that influences them.
A hard and fast rule is to avoid changing or omitting anything that is required, even if you don’t understand it. Development programs are also the result of years of research. Patients do not realize that we have tried most, if not all of the remedies, methods and products available on the market. So if it is not recommended, stay away. If it is recommended, use it, even if it makes little sense.
Holistic physicians, often with little real experience with cancer, are among the worst offenders here. They may attend a seminar or workshop and suddenly feel they can do better than the masters. Adding extra products often wrecks a program, and the reasons can be subtle. Be very careful about this.
b) Inability to do the program. This may be due to financial issues, mental confusion or even a lack of strength to carry out the instructions perfectly.
c) Lack of adequate supervision. This is also common. Always consult your practitioner if you are not sure what to do in a situation. Too many people end up in an emergency room, or stopping their program when this is not the correct solution to a flare-up or other situation.
Doctors who help people with cancer must be available for phone calls, at least, and should supervise patients carefully. Remember, cancer is not a simple illness in most cases.
In fact, cancer is more like a climb up a steep slope where you cannot see the goal clearly at first. There are wrong turns and hazards to avoid, so use care in whom you choose as your guide, and keep in close communication when necessary.
d) Lack of commitment. Any natural approach takes commitment. It will usually not be easy sailing at all times and one must persist, even when it seems like things are not going well. This occurs during what are called healing reactions, for example. For more on this critical subject, read Retracing And Healing Reactions on this website.
e) Quitting too soon. This is another common problem. Plan on staying on your therapy for several years, at least. The diet and lifestyle should be lifelong choices.
One must stay with the natural therapy for at least a year after obvious tumors have shrunk or one feels much better. Otherwise, relapses can occur easily, since cancer is a degenerative condition.
f) Lack of emotional and moral support. This, too, occurs often with alternative cancer approaches, more than with any other illness I am aware of. Some people feel they must have the support of their families, the media and the medical world. Otherwise they feel uncomfortable with their cancer regimen.
Alternative methods do not offer this. For best success, one must be far more independent of the attitudes of others, realizing that they are usually terribly uninformed and misinformed. Often they are also terrified of cancer by the media and not thinking clearly about you and your real needs.
g) Lack of faith in the program. If you believe strongly in someone or something, you will tend to relax, follow orders better, and have a better attitude. If you think you are wasting your time and money, no approach will be as effective.
For this reason, watch out with whom you speak or share your condition, and your plans. Thoughtless or stray words from doctors and others can have a great influence on one who is ill.
If you seek counseling or other help from a counselor, pastor, family or friends, make sure they understand your natural healing program, and are fully supportive.
This is a challenge for those who have not examined their lives carefully, or who have lived less than wholesome lives. There are ways to enhance the will to live, such as reading spiritual books, reading the Bible, and reading certain articles on this website that explain how life works, and why life is a precious gift.
WHAT IF YOU ARE NOT SUCCEEDING?
If the program you have chosen is not causing any changes within a few weeks, even subtle ones described below, it may not be working. Fortunately, with the therapies in this article, this rarely happens. Early changes may be subtle and even have little to do with your tumor or cancer. They may be emotional improvements, for example.
For example, you may have more energy, feel happier or have less pain, even if the tumor has not changed. In fact, do not expect your tumor or even your general health to change quickly in many cases. Only with the therapies mentioned in this article and perhaps a few others, tumors occasionally even grow larger for a short time as they soften and disintegrate.
At times, tests such as x-rays and blood tests may also look worse. This can be part of the process of tumor necrosis or destruction of the cancer. So, be sure to work with a practitioner who understands this.
Also, do not just pay attention to x-rays or other medical tests, which often cannot detect subtle changes inside tumors. However, if there are no changes at all, even subtle ones, don’t waste your time on something that is not working.
Stop what you are doing and change to a different approach. The exception here is that when a healing reaction or retracing is taking place, one must stick with the program. This is difficult, and this is where a professional who understands the program deeply will be of great help. During all retracing, one’s judgment is affected and everyone needs outside help to see their way through.
Should you spend a lot of time with conventional doctors while on a natural therapy program? This is a difficult decision, at times. It is up to you how often you visit your conventional doctor, but I found that staying away from the medical world as much as possible is often very helpful. This is not always the case, but here are my observations based on working with thousands of people:
1. The medical world can be very depressing and discouraging.
2. Doctors and other medical personnel are often deeply afraid of cancer, themselves. They speak and gesture in a way that unconsciously instills fear in you.
3. Most doctors, including holistic doctors, are not well-informed about healing reactions, the Kelley program, development science, etc. So they often inadvertently wreck the programs by suggesting other remedies, other diets, or other therapies.
4. Sadly, the cancer establishment is corrupt. You may not think this is true, as most doctors are well-intentioned, as are most hospitals. However, the licensing boards control medical care and do not want the truth about metabolic cancer therapies to be known.
There is a built-in bias, in other words, against natural therapies that doctors do not know much about. Their journals do not teach them about natural cancer therapy in an honest way, sadly, because they are supported by drug ads. I know this for a fact. So one cannot expect to hear the truth from one’s conventional doctor, although we all want it.
Indeed, many patients are often “railroaded” into complying with doctor’s suggestions in various ways – even legal means. I am sorry to have to say all this, and I wish it were not true, but it is.
Do not be deceived because your doctor is very “nice”, or concerned, or because he was educated at very fine universities. In my experience, none of this matters. This is very hard for some people to fathom - that all their learning and research staffs, that their doctors might be almost totally ignorant when it comes to metabolic and natural approaches to cancer. However, it is the truth. I experienced this myself and it confused me for years, until I accepted this truth.
HOW TO PREVENT CANCER
Cancer is a disease that is best prevented. This is because:
1. It is a serious health condition.
2. It is a stealth disease, and it can be very fast-moving. Recently, a friend called because his 28-year-old son had minor surgery for an abdominal problem. Much to everyone’s surprise, his abdomen was full of cancer, and he soon died. This is unfortunately a common story.
3. Dissolving tumors is not that easy for the human body. This greatly slows healing of cancer and causes many failures in natural and conventional cancer therapies.
Here are simple suggestions that can go a long way to preventing or healing cancer:
1. Remove all root canal-filled teeth now. I know this is costly and unpleasant, at times. However, most become infected quickly, and they spew very toxic germs that encourage the growth of cancer.
2. Stop drinking fluoridated and chlorinated water, if possible. Filter tap water with carbon only, or drink spring water. Do not drink reverse osmosis or alkaline water.
3. Eat only pure, natural food. Do not eat fast food and do not eat refined flour, white sugar, white rice or table salt. Sea salt is excellent, however. Also, do not eat food that is heavily preserved, refined, or packaged.
4. Get plenty of rest and sleep.
6. Avoid all recreational drugs, including marijuana. Do not listen to anyone who says marijuana is not that toxic. It is very toxic.
7. Eat about two tablespoons of roasted sesame tahini and two tablespoons of roasted almond butter daily. The oils in these products may reduce estrogen, and may help in other ways to prevent some cancers.
8. Eat red meat three times a week only – not more, and portions for adults need to be only 4-5 ounces. Have lamb twice a week and grass-fed beef once a week. Avoid regular beef, which is very hybridized and irritating today. Some people who have a lot of cancer already need to avoid all red meat and all eggs until their cancer is reduced.
We do not recommend vegetarian or vegan diets because they are deficient. (If you have cancer, avoid all red meat until we say it is okay.)
9. Eat only up to 6 eggs per week for women and up to 8 eggs per week for men. More can induce some cancers. Eggs must be cooked soft only so the yolk is runny.
10. Avoid all fruit and fruit juices. These make the body too yin, which is associated with cancer, no matter how nutritious or tasty the fruit may seem.
11. Breathe deeply every day. Cancer cannot live in a well-oxygenated body.
12. Watch your thoughts and your emotions. Cancer often occurs in people who hold on to anger and resentments.
13. To really reduce your risk of cancer, follow a complete development program with one of the Approved Helpers listed on this website. It will remove dozens of toxic metals and hundreds of toxic chemicals from the body that are associated with the development of cancer. Click here to find a Helper.
GENETIC TESTING FOR CANCER
This is very tricky. Genetic testing does not only test the DNA. It also tests the body’s ability to copy the DNA and some of the steps of biosynthesis, which is the synthesis of chemicals from the DNA.
When a genetic test indicates a tendency for cancer, it is not a problem with the DNA. It is a problem with copying the DNA and synthesizing the chemicals the body needs from the DNA. These problems are due to the presence of toxic metals, toxic chemicals or nutrient deficiencies, and nothing more.
Therefore, if you receive a genetic test result indicating a tendency for cancer, the answer is NOT to have your breasts cut off or other mutilation of the body. The answer is to correct your body chemistry.
This requires a development program. Other healing and nutrition programs do not work nearly as well, including holistic and naturopathic programs. For more details, read Genetic Testing.
This section is unfortunate to have to include, but this article would not be complete with out it. The fact is that the AMA (American Medical Association) and other powerful medical groups do not like the competition from natural cancer therapies. Doctors who offer alternative and natural cancer therapies are often harassed by federal agents, and some lose their licenses for helping people recover from a terminal disease.
However, many prominent politicians and others know about these therapies. Ronald Reagan and Betty Ford are just two among many politicians and public figures who secretly received natural, alternative cancer therapies and succeeded.
You will generally not hear about the alternatives I will suggest below because they do not involve patentable drugs, surgery or radiation therapy. As a result, the drug industry and others cannot profit from them. This sounds very cynical, but it is the truth, and nothing but the truth.
The pharmaceutical industry has infiltrated medical care to an enormous degree. They mainly profit from patentable products, which does not include foods, vitamins, minerals, oxygen therapy, and similar products.
The drug industry and their allies strongly discourage the public from using natural cancer therapies mainly by controlling what doctors learn and how they practice their trade. Control is accomplished through the medical licensing laws, hospital regulations, laboratory regulations, and extensive media control. Several excellent books have been written about the sad and insane control of the drug companies over medical care, and particularly as regards cancer therapy.
Medical studies of cancer remedies. One must be extremely wary of “medical studies” about cancer because most are biased and manipulated to achieve a certain outcome. Here are just a few ways that studies are rigged to produce a certain outcome:
1. Studies often discuss the “5-year survival rate” of various therapies. If a person lives for five years, he or she is considered cured. If the person dies even one day after the five years is up, the person is still categorized as “cured”. This, of course, is insane, since most people want to live more than five years. But this is how the statistics are set up. Most people do not know this.
2. Drugs are often tested for only a short time, during which the drug may show “promise”. The drug maker knows that if they extended the time a few more months or a year, it would fail, but they do not report this fact.
3. Often, a special group of people are used in the study that the authors know will do well on a drug. Yet this is not revealed. Alternatively, when “studying” a natural therapy, the authors of the study may select participants that they know will not do well, but they do not reveal this fact.
4. If a person participating in a drug study dies before completing the trial period, that person may be removed entirely from the study because he or she “did not complete the study”. This skews the study and makes it look much more successful than it really was.
5. In one drug trial, rats died during the study period, and were simply replaced by new rats in order to complete the study.
6. The “study” of alternative methods are done with only one or a few participants. This should not be considered valid, but it often is. Medical studies of hair analysis were rigged this way, for example.
7. Authors of drug studies are often paid by drug companies to conclude something the study really does not show, often while ignoring the real facts or conclusions. However, you would never know this unless you read the study very carefully.
8. A “study” can easily discredit a new method of cancer therapy by using the wrong dosage, the wrong protocol for the product, or even the wrong product. This is done very commonly. It might even look like a silly “mistake”, but it is no such thing.
9. Something is added to or omitted from the “study” protocol that wrecks the intended effect. For example, if a natural product also requires a healthful diet along with it, the dietary part is omitted and the product “studied” without the diet.
10. Studies of natural products at major cancer centers in the United States found benefit in natural methods. However, the results were either not reported in medical journals, or they were buried in other ways so that doctors and others did not find out about them.
11. Dozens of other tricks can be used to either make a product seem effective when it is not, or to discredit a valid method. The above are just a small sampling of how scientific studies can be biased, and how the public and doctors are kept in the dark about the dismal performance of much of drug medicine. This ignorance and deception today pervades the entire medical establishment, even the most elite medical centers. However, it is perhaps most pronounced in the area of cancer therapy.
TISSUE MINERAL PATTERNS SEEN OFTEN WITH CANCER
One cannot diagnose cancer from a hair mineral test. However, some mineral patterns on this test are associated with cancer. They are:
1. Sympathetic dominance. Excessive activity of the sympathetic nervous system inhibits the immune response, detoxification, digestion and other critical bodily activities. This slowly tears down the body. For details, read Sympathetic Dominance.
2. Four lows pattern. This pattern is associated with exhaustion and worsening health. For details, read Four Lows Pattern.
3. A sodium/potassium ratio less than 2. This is associated with an impaired immune response. As the ratio becomes lower, the tendency for immune deficiency and malignancy increases. For details, read Low Sodium/Potassium Ratio.
4. Elevated copper, calcium, or cadmium. A copper level greater than about 10 mg%, a calcium level greater than 400 mg%, or a cadmium level above about 0.03 mg% is associated with cancer.
5. Other elevated toxic metal levels or poor eliminator patterns. High levels of toxic potassium, toxic forms of selenium, mercury, lead, arsenic, nickel, and palladium may be associated with the development of cancer.
Poor eliminator patterns are very low readings of toxic metals, which indicate problems eliminating toxic metals. This is also associated with cancer.
6. Low levels of vital minerals, especially zinc. This is also associated with an impaired immune response.
5. Phosphorus less than 12 mg%. This is a low vitality indicator. For details, read Phosphorus.
Dietary imbalances associated with cancer are a diet low in cooked vegetables, a diet high in refined sugars, or a diet low in omega-3 fatty acids.
PROBLEMS WITH CONVENTIONAL CANCER DIAGNOSES AND SCREENING
Breast cancer. Breast cancer screening and diagnosis are important subjects. For more on this topic, please read Breast Cancer Screening And Prevention.
Biopsy errors. Please be warned that biopsies can be unreliable. They can produce false positive and false negative results. Try to confirm biopsy findings, if at all possible, since false positive results can cause extensive treatments when they may not be needed. This relates to the next topic.
Defensive medicine. Today, many doctors practice what is called defensive medicine. This is really not medical care, but “legal care”. They may diagnose an early cancer even if they are not sure, because this is preferable to missing the diagnosis and getting sued.
I appreciate their careful approach. However, a person can end up on very toxic drugs, or having toxic radiation therapy and surgery without needing it. They can also become very depressed and anxious for no reason. So please beware of this situation in today’s medical care.
Beware of medical “preventive testing”. X-rays of the breasts, for example, increase cancer incidence. Ultrasound or infrared thermal imaging, by contrast, are much safer. This is just one example of how prevention must be carefully thought out.
A very good and simple serum-based cancer screening panel is available from American Metabolic Laboratories. No doctor’s prescription is needed, as they send you one. See the reference section of this article for more information about this laboratory test.
A development program can cause what looks like cancerous growths, but they are not. Recently, two people who were on development programs suddenly developed “lumps”, that were then diagnosed with cancer. However, upon closer investigation, one was actually told she just had pre-cancerous cells. In both cases, the problem was a healing reaction and the lumps went away on their own. Reasons for the confusion and possible misdiagnoses are:
1. On a development program, the body can move toxins easily into a cyst or benign tumor to make them easier to remove. So a lump appears. It is not cancer, in my experience, but a process of ridding the body of cancer, even though it contains some abnormal cells.
2. Most cancers require 8-10 years to develop before they are diagnosable with standard tests. Development programs do not promote cancer growth. In fact, the opposite is true.
Common medical errors in handling cancer. These include:
1. Treating cancer as a local disease instead of a systemic one. This tends to cause relapses or recurrences. Doctors then treat these as “new” cancers, when they are just the progression of the same illness that was mistreated the first time with drugs or other methods that do not strengthen and detoxify the entire body.
2. Using extremely toxic drugs and radiation as a first line of treatment, rather than as a last resort in most cases.
3. Ignoring very high quality nutrition and diet, drinking water, food supplements, and perhaps other lifestyle factors when addressing cancer.
4. Ignoring wonderful detoxification procedures such as coffee enemas and the daily use of a near infrared sauna.
AMINO ACIDS WITH CANCER
Those with cancer may have low serum albumin and globulin levels and this seriously impairs healing.
They also all have a reduced capacity to digest protein, so it is more difficult for them to obtain the amino acids they require. Protein is also acid-forming and their bodies are all too acidic to begin with.
This leads some cancer specialists to restrict protein intake for cancer patients. However, this can cause problems because some protein is needed.
Reducing red meat or eggs. We recommend avoiding all red meat and all eggs until we tell you it is okay to resume eating these foods. This is not due to their protein content, however. It is because red meat and eggs are also high in a toxic form of iron that makes the cancer problem worse.
NOTE: Blood tests of cancer patients often reveal anemia. This is sometimes called the anemia of chronic disease. We believe that cancer cells secrete a substance that causes anemia. Giving iron to a cancer patient is usually harmful. For details, read Anemias.
