Natural Cancer Treatments
Natural Cancer Treatments
This is part two of my article about natural cancer treatments. Check out that Part One here.
**Updated May 2020**
Even though I live a natural healthy lifestyle, I’m not against conventional medicine. The first course of treatment should be finding the cause and using natural therapies to put the body back in balance. If you have cancer, esp. an advanced case, you may feel a need to use conventional medicine first before instituting natural treatments. Modern medicine should deal with the causes of diseases firest and then incorporate an integrative approach to healing. This isn’t always the case.
I’m a huge fan of integrative doctors who look at the cause of illnesses, offering solutions by recommending a healthy diet and exercise. Patients have a variety of choices to treat various ailments. Conventional therapies shouldn’t be presented as the only option as a first step of treatment. The best way to approach health is to give people information on how to live healthy daily. Then there is less likelihood of a person getting cancer, diabetes, or other serious illness since these diseases take form after years of bad habits.
The climate crisis and pollution issues are out of control and increase incidences of disease. That’s why it’s essential to try to maintain good health within as many methods that you can control. Unless you’re growing ALL of your food, or live in a bubble, outside influences have a significant impact on your state of health.
Most natural cancer treatments have not gone through clinical trials to prove effectiveness, and most doctors won’t recommend natural cancer treatments. I have included information in this article and last week’s article with current research information, if available. Do your research and come to your personal conclusions.
Dandelion tea is being used as a natural cancer treatment for patients given grim diagnoses. I read about Dr. Caroline Hamm, a Canadian doctor, noticed some patients getting better from drinking dandelion tea. As a result, Windsor, Ontario researchers have received a $217,000 grant to study how effective dandelion root extract is in fighting cancer.
The Budwig Diet
Dr. Johanna Budwig invented the Budwig diet. She was a German biochemist and pharmacist. She claimed a more than a 90% success rate with her diet though no clinical studies verify this. She wrote several books that had anecdotal examples of treatment effectiveness.
The Budwig diet involves eating flaxseed mixed with quark (a type of cheese) or cottage cheese. The diet consists of including fresh vegetables and fruits and cutting out sugar, meat, salad oil, and butter.
Doctors Treating Cancer with Alternative Methods
Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski
Dr. Burzynski is a biochemist and physician based in Texas who invented antineoplastons to treat cancer. Antineoplastons are gene-targeted, non-toxic peptides, and amino acids. His therapy has none of the awful side effects of chemotherapy.
He’s been researching cancer for more than 35 years and has CURED people with fatal cancer diagnoses. Many of his patients were children with inoperable brain tumors who were told they had only six months to live. The medical establishment has tried to pull his medical license since the 1970’s. Many people say they were cured from fatal cancers, (providing medical records as proof.)
There are also some naysayers say that the doctor is a scam and killed their loved ones that had life-ending cancer diagnoses. My thinking is that medicine is a practice, and there are no guarantees. My mom didn’t have a deadly diagnosis and still died. If your loved one is told, they will only live for three or four months, then what do you expect from a doctor.
You currently can only get his so-called experimental therapy through a FDA drug trial only after you have gone through chemo.
Check out this YouTube for more information about the doctor.
Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez (Died in 2015)
Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez was a well-known New York doctor, and researcher who treated cancer patients with individualized care focused on “diet, aggressive supplementation with nutrients and pancreas product (containing naturally occurring enzymes), and detoxification.” He also used coffee enemas to treat cancer.
Listen to him talk about old Merck Medical Manuals from the 1970s detailing the use of coffee enemas for several diseases. And the New England Journal of Medicine reporting the use of coffee enemas for treating mental illness.
In 1998, the National Cancer Institute funded a clinical study on the effects of nutritional enzyme therapy on inoperable pancreatic cancer. Those in charge mismanaged the study. The results published in the Journal of Oncology stated that chemotherapy performed better that enzyme therapy. The Office of Human Research Protections and the FDA later investigated and confirmed the research mismanagement. It’s too bad; another study can’t be done. Check out the entire story here.
Dr. Joel Fuhrman
Dr. Fuhrman. M.D says that mushrooms are great for breast cancer: white button, white stuffing, Portobello, oyster, cremini, reishi, maitake. (Side note from me: Portobello, oyster, reishi, and maitake are the easiest to find probably.)
Dr. Fuhrman recommends mushrooms specifically because of their anti-aromatase activity for breast cancer. He references this Chinese breast cancer study published in the International Journal of Cancer . Here’s one of his articles, and here’s another.
I found this medical study about reishi mushrooms.
Please post your thoughts. If you or a loved one has been treated by one of the doctors mentioned, please share your experiences with my readers.
