7 Steps to Beating Cancer Naturally

Cancer can be beaten naturally if you are determined.

There are seven important things you must follow from the natural
medicine's perspective to control cancer and beat it. They represent a
complete approach to addressing the major cancer characteristics outlined above. All the seven steps are equally important.

Step 1: Starving Cancer cell

Cancer is a sugar-feeder. You should learn to reduce your intake of sugar
(including grains and refined sugar) by 90% to create a low sugar environment.

Change to low-glycemic index carbohydrates. Avoid all soda pop, most grains, rice, and potatoes.

Step 2: Oxygenate your body

Cancer cells hate oxygen. They thrive in an anaerobic (oxygen free)
Moderate aerobic exercise is the best way to get oxygen on board. If
you are too weak to exercise, simple deep breathing is a good start.
Other oxygen generating modalities are ozone and hydrogen peroxide

Step 3: Avoid Malnutrition

40% of all cancer patients die from malnutrition. It is important to
maintain a good diet and nutrition. Consume healthy fats and plant
based proteins to maintain nitrogen balance and muscle strength without
aggravating cancer. The amount of calories we need is determined by our
individual physical activity level. It is easy to consume calories. The
challenge is to get nutritious and not simply empty calories into our
bodies. Stay with organic whole foods, with plenty of green leafy
vegetables, low-glycemic fruits, beans and legumes for plant-based

Step 4: Use nutritional supplements

nutritional supplementation is a cornerstone for natural medicine as
our body does not get enough of them from a regular diet. A
"cocktail" of nutrients is needed to:

a. Prevent further mutational damage

b. Enhance mitochondrial function to increase energy production

c. Prevent cancer growth by blocking its spread

d. Enhance immune function to fight existing cancer cell

e. Balance our hormones

Step 5: Balance Your Internal terrain

Probiotics, enzymes, green food, and fibers are the 4 key pillars to
your internal milieu and pH. Use these everyday to ensure smooth bowel
transit time, proper absorption of nutrients from the food you take,
and proper balance of good and bad bacteria.

Step 6: Balance your Toxin Load

of toxic chemicals are accumulated in our bodies throughout the years.
These include mercury, lead, arsenic, and cadmium. Detoxification is a
process of cleansing our ecosystem and giving it a fresh start. The key
elements are:

a. To drink plenty of pure filtered water. There are no better substitutes.

b. To enhance our liver's function, which is the main detoxification organ,
with herbs.

c. To use chelating agents to bind and remove unwanted metals and minerals.

d. To flood the body with antioxidants with vegetable juices.

Step 7: Balance Your Hormones

misunderstood and under-appreciated, hormones have a lot more to do
with cancer than we think. This is especially so with hormone related
cancers such as breast, ovary, uterus, and prostate cancer.

Maintaining a balanced hormonal profile is a key to well-being and longevity as our bodies are flooded in a sea of hormones.

Addition Dietary and Lifestyle Modifications:

· Meditation and stress relaxation

· Active participation in a cancer help group

· Reduce exposure to estrogen, environmental toxins, electromagnetic field and microwaves

· Avoid coffee, alcohol, tea, milk and all diary products

General Cancer Nutraceutical Model

When it comes to nutrition as a tool to fight cancer, protocols do not exist.
Each practitioner has, from his or her own experience, arrived at a general
model that has worked well.

is a general cancer model that serves as a base for additional
components to be added depending on an individual's specific needs. It
is not a "protocol", as no such protocols exist when it comes to
individualized cancer therapy.

1. A good foundational formula consisting of the following:

Vitamin A (Antioxidant) - 15,000 I.U. (300% RDA) with no more than
5,000 I.U. in Vitamin A palmitate and the rest in natural mixed beta

· Vitamin C - (Antioxidant) - 1,000 mg (2,000% RDA)

· Vitamin E - (Antioxidant) - 300 to 400 I.U. (1,333% RDA) in the form of
water dispersible d-alpha tocopherol (the natural form)

· Selenium - (Antioxidant) - 200 mcg (285% RDA) in amino acid complex forms to enhance absorption.

· Magnesium - (Antioxidant) - 300 to 600 mg (125% RDA. The calcium to
magnesium ratio should be between1:1 to 1:2.

Vitamin B9 - (folic acid) - 800 mcg (200% RDA) - a non-toxic nutrient
that protects our chromosome from DNA damage and cancer.

· Vitamin B12 - 100 to 1,000 mcg a day

· Chromium - 200 mcg (166% RDA)

· Zinc - 30 mg (200% RDA)

· Calcium -
300-500 mg (30-50% RDA)

· Citrus Bioflavonoids - 100 mg

2. Interstitial matrix and collagen building. This cocktail consists of
ascorbic acid and mineral ascobates, l-lysine, l-proline, and ascobyl palmitate.

with 1 gram 3 times a day, working up to 3 to 4 grams 3 times a day.
The ultimate goal should be 12 grams of ascobates, 5 grams of lysine, 3
grams of proline and 200 to 400 mg of ascobyl palmitate. The dosage
should be reduced if diarrhea occurs.

3. Take whole food
nutritional supplementation to modulate the internal terrain and
increase alkalinity. The key nutrients include chlorella, spirulina,
green blue algae, wheat grass, and barley grass. Take 20 to 40 grams of
powered supplements a day.

Add soluble fiber to your
diet to ensure optimum detoxification and smooth bowel movement.
Consume at least 10 to 15 grams of soluble fiber supplementation in
addition to a diet rich in raw whole foods.

4. The following important anti-cancer nutrients may be required depending on the person:

· Co-enzyme Q10 at 100 to 300 mg a day

· Niacinamide at 1,000 to 2,000 mg a day

· Vitamin E at 400 to 1,200 I.U. may be added

· Fish Oil at 3,000 to 5,000 mg a day

· Calcium D Glucarate at 200 mg a day

· Proteolytic Digestive Enzymes at 2 to 8 tablets three times a day

· Quercetin at 1,000 mg to 3,000 mg a day

· Beta Carotene at 20,000 to 50,000 IU may be added

· Green tea extract (decaffeinated) at 200 mg a day

· Pantothenic acid and pantethine mixed at 500 to 1,000 mg a day

· Grape Seed Extract at 100 to 200 mg a day

5. To boost immunity, the following should be considered:

· Olive Leaf extract at 500 mg to 2,000 mg a day

· Milk Thistle extract (80% minimum) at 150 mg to 300 mg a day

· Tumeric extract (95% minimum) at 100 to 200 mg a day

· Echinacea extract (4% phenoliocs) at 200 mg a day

· Medical mushroom standardized (maitake, agaricus, and shitake) extracts at 500 mg to 2 grams each per day

· Garlic at 500 to 2,000 mg in concentrated form - equivalent to 1,250 mg
garlic bulk or half a clove of fresh garlic a day

· Cat's Claw extract at 200 to 1,500 mg a day

· Essiac Tea (Essence or Brewed)

6. Other Natural Therapies

are also many forms of natural therapies not related to natural
compounds but related to characteristics of the cancerous process. Many
of these therapies are have been extensively used for decades in a
clinical setting. Scientific documentation and double blind studies
required by modern medicine are incomplete, but anecdotal reports from
patients point to their validity. Suffice to say that provided there is
no harm, many patients, out of desperation, will attempt to implement
any one or all of these modalities. Many advanced cancer clinics in
Mexico or Western Europe employ these modalities. They are by no means
"quackery". It is fair to say, however, that there is simply not enough
data to pass the high level of scientific scrutiny.

· Hyperthermia to Kill Cancer Cells

· Bioresonance to Induce Cell Decomposition (lysis)

· Magnetic Resonance Water (MRW) to Suppress Cancer Proliferation

· Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation (UBI) Therapy

· Oxygenating Therapies

· Magnetic Therapy

· Lymphatic Therapy

· Insulin Potentiation Therapy

· Zoetron Therapy


Cancer in the
adult can partly be viewed as a degenerative process with
representative of underlying systemic dysfunction. We all have cancer
cells in our bodies. It is only when our body is unable to get rid of
the cancer cells that a disease process takes place.

What are
the underlying system dysfunctions? There are many factors, including
emotional, diet, drugs and chemicals, infections, genetic mutation, and
environmental pollutants.

Conventional treatments look at cancer
as a disease state. The natural-oriented doctor views cancer as a set
of symptoms reflecting underlying disease.

The conventional
treatment of surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy has been the
cornerstone of cancer treatment over the past 50 years. Today, the
clinical success of these treatments has reached a plateau. There is an
urgent need to break though this cure plateau by trying fresh

In the United States, much controversy has arisen
between mainstream and alternative medicine. The cancer establishment,
championed by the American Cancer Society (ACS) has characterized
natural and adjunctive cancer therapies as the works of quacks preying
on desperate and credulous cancer victims, while the proponents of
alternative therapies have depicted established therapies as the "cut,
burn, and poison" therapies of a cynical and profit-driven conspiracy.

this adversary position disappeared in many European countries like
Switzerland, Germany, England, and the Netherlands, where an open
co-existence of natural and conventional medicine in a complementary
setting prospers.

Naturally oriented physicians view natural
therapies as a way to complement conventional therapies and help the
patient overcome cancer without toxic side effects. Perhaps now you
should realize that both conventional and alternative therapies are
effective forms of cancer treatment. Today, many natural and non-toxic
modalities are offered in many countries such as Switzerland, Germany,
England, Mexico, and the Netherlands. Natural treatments co-exist
harmoniously with conventional treatments. The results are excellent.
In these countries, natural therapies and mainstream medicine are both
recognized as effective treatments for cancer. However, in the United
States, it is still not very recognized. Many doctors do not recommend
them. The most common reasons are ignorance and rigid medical
standards. This may be the underlying reason as to why United States
ranks low, a number 13th on the longevity scale despite having the most
advance medical technology in the world.

natural medicine approaches cancer therapy by incorporating the use of
antioxidants, lifestyle changes, herbs, and dietary modifications to
beat it. These approaches will also help to prepare the cancer
patient's body for conventional treatments and also help reduce any
side effects. The use of bothnatural non-toxic therapies and
conventional therapies in a logical and judicious manner makes sense.
Neither conventional nor alternative treatment holds the magic bullet
in cancer treatment. Combining the best of both worlds to beat cancer
make the most logical sense for the patient.

Looking into the future, the good news is that less toxic and target specific
chemotherapeutic agents are being developed. are high.

most cancer patients do not have time to wait. Sometimes, they are only
given a few more months to live. They and their families are desperate
and will look for any modality that offers a promise now.

Practitioners of natural therapies range from lay people with no medical
training to highly trained doctors who have departed from their mainstream
practice. The vast majority are doctors seeking to supplement careful use of conventional therapies with natural
approaches and not to replace them.

the proper combination and dosage of these natural compounds is an
important key to success. This comes with not only experience but also
an extensive medical knowledge of cancer. It is therefore highly
recommended to consult a nutritionally oriented physician with
orthomolecular oncology experience before you start any self-treatment
