I saw what chemo did to my son. Chemo is very distructive to the human body. I no longer believe that traditional chemo is the answer. I now believe it is better to improve the health of the person who has cancer so that his or her body can fight the cancer. From what I have read, cancer attacks those who are unhealty.

The body needs help in fighting cancer. The body needs to be healthy. The body needs essential nutrients for a strong immune system. The body does not need toxins that compromize the body's ability to control and confine cancer.

John Hopkins Update


Cancer Update from Johns Hopkins:

1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.

2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person's lifetime.

3. When the person's immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.

4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.

5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.

6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastrointestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.

7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.

8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.

9. When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.

10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.

11. An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells by not feeding it with the foods it needs to multiply.


. . . a. Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells. Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses, but only in very small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in color. Better alternative is Bragg's aminos or sea salt.

. . . b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soy milk, cancer cells are being starved.

. . . c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork... Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.

. . . d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes to nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells. To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).

. . . e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine. Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer fighting properties. Water-best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.

12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines becomes putrefied and leads to more toxic buildup.

13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body's killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.

14. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor-ssence, Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the bodies own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body's normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.

15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor. Anger, un-forgiveness and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.

16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.

. . . (1.) No plastic containers in micro.
. . . (2.) No water bottles in freezer.
. . . (3.) No plastic wrap in microwave.

Johns Hopkins has recently sent this out in its newsletters.. This information is being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center as well. Dioxin chemicals cause cancer, especially breast cancer. Dioxins are highly poisonous to the cells of our bodies.

Don't freeze your plastic bottles with water in them as this releases dioxins from the plastic. Recently, Dr. Edward Fujimoto, Wellness Program Manager at Castle Hospital, was on a TV program to explain this health hazard. He talked about dioxins and how bad they are for us. He said that we should not be heating our food in the microwave using plastic containers. This especially applies to foods that contain fat. He said that the combination of fat, high heat, and plastics releases dioxin into the food and ultimately into the cells of the body. Instead, he recommends using glass, such as Corning Ware, Pyrex or ceramic containers for heating food. You get the same results, only without the dioxin. So such things as TV dinners, instant ramen and soups, etc., should be removed from the container and heated in something else. Paper isn't bad but you don't know what is in the paper. It's just safer to use tempered glass, Corning Ware, etc. He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food restaurants moved away from the foam containers to paper. The dioxin problem is one of the reasons.

Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as Saran, is just as dangerous when placed over foods to be cooked in the microwave. As the food is nuked, the high heat causes poisonous toxins to actually melt out of the plastic wrap and drip into the food. Cover food with a paper towel instead.

Additional Opinions from Russ . . .

In addition to the above, one should avoid genetically modified foods. The most common modifications are the addition of genes that give the food plant the ability to withstand herbacides such as glyphosate, and the ability to produce the Bt neurotoxin that is a pesticide. Some believe that the Bt neurotoxin and glyphosate, a herbicide, contributes to high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, stomach, memory and cognetive problems. These toxins interfer with the function of the liver, pancreas, kidneys and immune system. Some genetically modified foods are genetically unstable and can mutate to a form that can produce new toxins. I believe eating genetically modified foods are also a cancer risk. Spcifically, avoid Bt-corn, Bt-soy, Bt-cotton-seed, Bt-canola, Bt-sugar-beet, Bt-alfalfa and foods made from them including high fructose corn syrup. I believe these genetically modified foods contain toxins that interfer with our bodies immune system and thus allows cancer to grow. Sometimes glyphosate is replaced with 2,4-D, one of the main active ingredients in Agent Orange. Agent Orange caused a large number of birth defects in Vet-Nam in the 1960's & 1970's. Most of these deformed children did not survive. 2,4-D does not belong in our food.

The herbicide glyphosate works by binding up the Calcium, Chromium, Copper, Iron, Magnesium, Manganese, Molybdenum, & Zinc in the soil and thus making it unavailable to plants. This prevents most plants from growning. But plants that have been genetically modified to grow with out these nutrients will survive. However, rats, dogs, sheep, goats & cattle fed only these GM foods, will usualy die within 2 months. Humans eating these GM foods need an alternate nutrient source for a health immune system. A good and sufficient source of natural supplements of missing vitamins and minerals will help a person survive. But of course organic foods are much healthier then these GM foods that create the Bt-toxin and are sprayed with large amounts herbicide.

All the sugar you eat, especially fructose, feeds cancer. I believe that what causes cancer thrives in an acidic environment. Avoid foods [sugars, meats, etc.] that cause an acidic body. Eat foods [vegtables mostly] that reduce body acidity. Some believe that what causes cancer cannot survive in an alkaline body. Others believe cancer cannot survive in a high oxygen environment. Some believe eating a habanero and hot ginger stops tumor growth. There are many alternative treatments which may or may not work. What I do know, is somewhere there is a natural way to make someone cancer free.

There are some that believe that a fungus causes cancer. Watch the following video [3 parts]. Tullio Simoncini - The hypothesis that the Candida Albicans Fungus may cause Cancer: . . Cancer by Fungus? 1 of 3, . . Cancer by Fungus? 2 of 3, . . Cancer by Fungus? 3 of 3

Of couse the best thing to do is to avoid those things that cause cancer. Avoid ionizing radiation as much as possible. [UVC, X-ray, etc.] However, moderate exposure to UVB [in the range of 290 - 320 nm] without sunscreen helps form vitimin D that helps make a body healthy. Those who avoid salt in watching their weight and are not eating seafood may want to check their iodine level. There are many trace minerals that are needed for a healthy immune system that are almost missing from foods grown in depleated soil.

If you have a cell phone, get a headset to move the antenna away from the body. Avoid toxic chemicals. Read labels on foods and cosmetics. Absolutely avoid aspartame, trans-oils & fats, msg and foods genetically modified to make or withstand a poison. Avoid inhaling smoke from any source. Avoid inhaling fungus spores. I have been often told I do not exercise enough and that exercise is necessary for good health. And last, review any medications you take with your doctor. Some are needed. Some are only needed becuase of an unhealthy life style. Most medications are toxic.

It is Russ' Opinion that following the John Hopkins healthy guidelines will also protect you from obesity, hypertension [high blood pressure] and type 2 diabetes. Watch the following video:

Old Family History

I have been told that my great uncle had a cancer clinic. He was not a doctor, but he had a natural remedy for cancer that was told to him from a Native American Medicine Man. He mixed up the the natural remedy which was then use by an MD to cure cancer. I have been told the cure rate was very high.

And this is from my mother talking about her mother.

And this from the Alemeda History:

Unfortunately, the formulation of the natural remedy was lost when the Bohannon Cancer Institute was shut down. The natural remedy must have been simple ingrediants since they were available to Native Americans. I admit I have lost faith in the ability of 'Big Pharma', the AMA and our government to understand what cancer is and how to cure it. I now think that the American Cancer Society is funding the wrong kind of research.

Much later in 2011, there was an article published about a "Native American Cancer Cure". Was this what the Bohannon Cancer Clinic used? I do not know. It said that the miracle cancer cure was made from a brew made from four herbs: burdock root, sheep sorrel, slippery elm, and Indian rhubarb. In 1966 it said that Hungarian researchers discovered anti-tumor activity in burdock root. It contained inulin oil that attaches to white blood cells and enhances their function. It was also found to contain benzaldehyde, which has significant human anti-cancer effects. Burdock root also contained vitamin A and selenium. Sheep sorrel was found to be rich in vitamins, minerals and chlorophyll. Chlorophyll helps carry oxygen to body cells. Slippery elm has also shown anti-tumor activity and anti-inflammatory for the digestive system. It has been found to contain fatty acids. Fatty acids have been found to enhance a mouse's immune system. Indian rhubarb has been found to be rich in iron and to help detoxify the body, especially the liver, of toxic wastes. It also contains aloe emodin that inhibits tumor growth. It has been said that the correct formulation of these herbs is known only by Essiac Canada International.

Gerson Cancer Video

There are rumours that compounds such as hydrazine sulfate, that stops the glucose-lactic acid cycle, seems to stop cancer growth. There are rumours that are other sulfur compounds are also useful. There are rumours that plants of the mustard family, including broccoli, seem to help the immune system, especially if the ground they grew in was rich in selenium. Some believe that lemons can cure cancer.

What it comes down to, is the that it is far more effective to have a healthy immune system kill cancer, then to try to do it with selective anti-cancer genes.
