Less than 10% of Internal Cancer Patients are
Completely Cured of Cancer by Conventional Treatments. Some
Always Did Recover Without Modern Treatments.

THE CAUSE AND ALTERNATIVE TREATMENT OF CANCER
In the last 150 years the medical field has promised
hundreds of new treatments for cancer, most of which were promised to be THE
cure for most cancers. Probably all of them have been based upon the concept
of killing the cancer. In all of these years, billions of dollars in
research, and probably trillions of dollars in wasted medical bills, cancer
patients are not living any longer than they did hundreds of years ago. The
number of people with cancer has increased exponentially since the FDA has
begun controlling food additives, medications and cancer treatments. The
only reduction of the suffering of cancer patients has been in giving them
morphine and other pain killers.
Actually the modern treatments have greatly increased the
suffering, by largely removing the patient from the comforts of home, family
and friends and often immediately turning the patient into a complete
invalid before the time it would happen if the cancer were running its
course. Those who survive the conventional cancer treatments are often in
poor health thereafter, although not always. One might expect the word
“cure” to mean the condition was completely eliminated. However, they have
redefined the word to mean anyone living more than five years after the
condition was diagnosed. They may die five years and one day after the
diagnoses, but it counts as a cure. Statistics appear to indicate that only
7% are completely free of cancer after orthodox treatment.
Although there have been allopathic doctors and naturopathic doctors who
have claimed to consistently cure cancer, and there is a lot of evidence
that they really did, the establishment refuses to recognize or even examine
any of these claims. Many of them have died in prison for their efforts. The
established medical field, heavily protected by law to where it is often
illegal to even publish statements refuting there practices, keeps claiming
they now have just received the real treatment for cancer.
Throughout history there have been many treatments for cancer. Many were
a hoax and a ruse for collecting money from the patients and their families.
Still many stories in history seem to indicate that some of these treatments
did work. One commonly used in Europe up until modern times and probably
still sometimes today, was the “grape cure”. This consisted of eating almost
nothing but grapes and raisins and drinking nothing but grape juice. It is
said that it often did work. In light of modern scientific studies outside
of the drug companies, it can be seen that it might have worked, if a person
could maintain this diet long enough.
An interesting study is in patients definitely diagnosed with cancer who
have recovered completely without any treatments of any kind. Oncologists
admit to these rare cases but put little effort into studying why they
recovered. Their recovery pattern is always completely contrary to the
established pattern and the establishment cannot relate to it.
One typical and well documented case is that of John Metzke, as reported in
an Article in Discover; “Citizen, Heal Thyself”, September 2007. In 1973
John developed a large lump in his armpit and it was diagnosed as malignant
melanoma. He did not have anything done with it at that time, but 11 years
later, it had spread into his lung. His oncologist, Dr Joseph F. O’Donnell,
judged his chances of recovery as very slim and urged an immediate
John decided the treatments might be more than he could survive at the time
and decided to take a month to build up his health first. He began taking
long hikes in the mountains, improved his diet and began meditating by
visualizing himself healthy, with good healthy cells replacing his diseased
cells, and healthy blood flowing to the area.
At the end of the month his health was greatly improved and
he reported back to his oncologist for his treatments. There was only one
problem. The oncologist could not find any sign of any cancer! The cancer
Although there are enough such cases to prove it is possible,
the medical field does little to investigate or study any of these cases.
What can be learned from these cases? I am not a doctor; I am a medical
researcher. Therefore nothing herein should be considered to be a
prescription for any health problem or any diagnoses of any condition. The
following should be viewed for information and educational purposes only.
However, I think some of my research on the subject of cancer is quite
interesting and I hope it will be very helpful to many people. I therefore
present the results of my studies for the reader’s consideration only, as
Recently, an allopathic surgeon and oncologist in Italy has
published a book in three languages in which he claims to have cured many
patients over the last twenty years considered incurable by the general
medical field. What is the main treatment he has used? Common sodium
bicarbonate! Ridiculous! Impossible! But, probably quite true.
His name is Dr. Tullio Simoncini and his web site is
http://www.cancerfungus.com. His book is “Cancer is a Fungus”. Yes, Dr.
Simoncini says it quite clearly:
Cancer is Candida Albacans.
Although trained in the
conventional medical field, his theories in his specialty of cancer are 180
degrees from present day conventional medicine. And yet everything he says
makes perfect sense. Is he right or is the present day medical field right?
He is apparently curing cancer consistently, while present day medicine is
often increasing the suffering, often in hospitals away from family and
friends and the comforts of home. A few recover. They always did. If they
recover after being treated by alternative methods the doctors usually
reply; “It was apparently a false diagnoses.” The original diagnoses was
always their diagnoses. If that is the case, the question comes to mind:
“How many of their patients who recovered were falsely diagnosed and never
did have cancer?”
In modern times the medical field claims
statistics show an increase in their cancer cures. However, an
investigation shows that they have redefined the word “cure”
when applied to cancer as a case in which a person diagnosed
with cancer lives five years after the diagnoses. If a patient
lives five years and one day after being diagnosed with cancer
he (or she) is counted as a cure by the medical profession. Thus
the statistics have been altered to make it seem that there are
more people cured of cancer today than there used to be. But are
Dr. Simoncini treats his patients primarily as out patients,
requiring little or no hospitalization! His treatments are
relatively low cost. So what is Dr. Simoncini saying? How does
he explain this radical idea? His book is aimed partly at the
medical field and the explanations are sometimes hard for the
average reader to understand. However, his theories and
treatments are simple and easily understood. I will try to
explain them in simple and brief terms for the readers.
Another researcher in the field is Marijah Mc Cain,  a
microscope specialist and head of the Herbal Healer Academy, who
is equipped with a special microscope in which she claims to
have a higher magnification than most doctors have available.
With that tool she has searched the blood for Candida Albacans
and other fungus. She reports that in virtually every case of a
health problem that defies treatment, fungus has heavily
infected the blood, although the medical schools still insist
that fungus is not systemic (cannot live in the blood). She
further reports that after chemotherapy as well as radiation
therapy, the tissues were a heavy matt of fine fungus. She
states the fungus grows with extreme rapidity after chemotherapy
as well as radiation and circulates throughout the body. She
further states it is the fungus that kills the patient. She
states the fungus is from candida albacans which has mutated
into a seemingly very different fungus under an acidic
In this, Marijah McCain is in complete agreement with Dr.
Simoncini, although they have arrived at their conclusions from
entirely different directions and entirely independently of each
other. Marijah Mc Cain uses herbs, and other natural substances
to treat cancer.
We also know from multiple sources that; like Dr. Simoncini and
Marijah Mc Cain emphasize, a cancer patient invariably is highly
acidic, in the blood and the intestine as well as the saliva. A
PH of 7.4 in the saliva is considered ideal. It will usually be
slightly lower in the morning and slightly higher toward
evening. It should be checked in the morning before eating or
drinking anything, but after the dry mouth has been well flushed
out with the fresh saliva.
The PH is actually the ratio of oxygen to hydrogen. Alkaline
substances are oxygen based while acid substances are hydrogen
based. An equal balance of both reads 7.0. Thus, alkaline foods
are oxygenating while acid foods are high in hydrogen, which
apparently absorbs oxygen, probably forming water (H20). The PH
scale is logarithmic. Thus, the difference between a PH of 6 and
7 is ten times as much as between 5 and 6 and the difference
between 6 and 7 is 100 times the difference between 4 and 5.
It is often considered that the acid-alkaline level of a person
is a very good indication of their health, especially what their
health will be in the near future. This all conforms to Otto
Warburg’s research showing that cancer is a lack of oxygen to
the cells and oxygen starvation will always result in cancer.
For this work he was awarded the Nobel Prize three times and
nominated a fourth. Raising the PH up to 7.4 is not easy in our
modern world of refined and denatured foods, which are very low
in oxygen and the low oxygen levels in the air. Alkaline foods
provide the body with oxygen, as Otto Warburg told us was the
cure for cancer. Alkaline foods produce an alkaline digestive
tract and an oxygenated body in general. Acid forming foods
starve the whole body of oxygen.
The common belief that all of our oxygen comes from our lungs is
an over simplification of the truth. All of the oxygen in our
blood does come from the lungs and we cannot live long without
that source of oxygen. However, every tissue in the body
contains oxygen. The oxygen in our tissues is chemically bound
in alkaline substances and not available to the blood.
Both Dr. Simoncini and Marijah Mc Cain agree; in cancer patients
the acid level has usually below 5 and often down to about 4.5
PH. This level is extremely dangerous and leaves a person
exhausted and prone to other very serious disease. The tissues
of our body are starved for oxygen and become deformed. Much
below that usually results in death.
Dr. Simoncini bases his cancer treatment almost entirely on the
concept of raising the patients PH level up to the mid 7 range
and does this with sodium bicarbonate. He says this is highly
anti-fungal, as well as being very alkaline. This is
administered orally and intravenously. He warns that the exact
dosage can be critical especially when using it intravenously.
The author advises the reader to study the entire Chapter 8,
“Candida and Other Yeasts”, Chapter 9, “What Causes Candida” and
Chapter 11, “Treating Candida”, in his book “A Miraculous Health
Substance” and consider them as included at this point. Some
specific considerations in the treatment of cancer follows. Much
of this also applies to health problems in general.
Candida is a major factor in general deterioration of a person’s
health. In the words of Otto Warburg; “The terrain is
everything”. By that he meant the PH, the sugar level, the
protein level, the oxygen level etc. Candida loves sugars and
sweets, but mutates very easily into a number of seemingly
different fungus depending on the “terrain”, especially in an
When the diet becomes highly acid, from
eating largely sugars, starches and excessive proteins, the PH
often drops to about 5. At this acid level, the candida becomes
ravenously hungry, mutates and becomes a parasite, now consuming
any tissue it can find, including live tissues and produces more
At this acid level the candida is very irritating to the
intestines and commonly eats away at the intestine until it
produces a porous intestine at some point. This is known as a
perforated intestine. The candida then passes into the blood.
Once in the blood at a PH of 5 or less, the candida eventually
will settle into one or sometimes more organs. Now the patient
has “cancer”, although it takes a long time in most cases to
become diagnosable. The organ is being consumed by the fungus
and cannot carry out its proper functions. As the fungus attacks
the organ, some organs often regrow, always attempting to
maintain a healthy organ. In these cases, the cancer is the
older part of the organ that the fungus is attacking.
If we destroy the “cancer” with radiation or chemotherapy, we
break down the cancer cells and produce a huge feast for the
fungus. Yes, the cancer appears to be gone or greatly reduced
and the treatment is often very impressive. But in the case of
chemo, the cells throughout the body are being attacked by the
chemo, although not as heavily as the cancer cells. As a result
the chemo or the radiation must be discontinued until the
patient regains enough health to withstand more destruction. The
candida now grows at a new, much higher rate, feeding off of the
destroyed very acid destroyed cancer cells, and as a result, the
cancer regrows at an amazing speed in many cases. By the time
the patient has recovered enough to withstand more treatment,
the cancer has often regrown to its original size and sometimes
The patient is usually led to believe the cancer would be
growing just as fast without the treatments and that the
treatments are the only thing keeping them temporarily alive.
This is usually not true, although the doctor often believes it.
The highly accelerated growth rate of the cancer is produced by
the almost explosive growth rate of the fungus. The explosive
growth rate of the candida is due to the breaking down of the
tissues into a form the candida thrives on in an extremely acid
condition. The chemotherapy destroys much more than the cancer
tissue, including some of the new healthy regrowth of the
diseased organ and part of the entire body.
Radiation is more closely controlled and limited to the treated
area, at least in general. However, the destroyed tissue along
with the candida feeding on the body tissues is circulating
throughout the body in both cases and broken down cells from the
destroyed tissues is even more acidic. If the cancer is totally
destroyed in its original area, the fungal infection is still
there and moves on to another area. The broken down acidic cells
carry the cancer with them. Recent statistics show various long
term heart damage from radiation treatments of the left breast.
Ionic colloidal silver is the only safe, effective treatment for
a fungus in the blood. It will kill the candida and other
unfriendly bacteria, fungus and virus in the digestive system
AND the blood without side effects. Silver salts collect in the
Vitamin C cleanses the body of toxins. Too much vitamin C causes
diarrhea. The more toxins there are in a person the more vitamin
C the body consumes and can consume without diarrhea. Due to the
very high levels of toxins produced by cancer in the system, the
cancer consumes extremely high levels of vitamin C.
World famous medical researcher and Nobel Prize winner, Linus
Pauling published medical papers revealing his extensive
research showing that megadoses of vitamin C cured cancer. His
evidence was extensive and vary impressive. However, the
pharmacitical companies immediately ran tests in which they
claimed his results were incorrect. More recent investigation
has shown their tests were highly questionable and support his
Cancer has also been shown to consume large doses of vitamin A,
evidenced by the typical watering of the eyes in many cancer
patients. Megadoses of vitamin A have been shown to aid in
cancer treatments. In the early 80’s laetrile (vitamin B-17) was
widely discussed as the cure for cancer. Medical studies
revealed that it was very effective in the treatment of cancer.
Being cheaply produced from apricot seeds, which are so rich in
it that a drug need not be produced from it, it did not interest
the drug companies and they began research to prove it would not
cure cancer. Actually they were right. Laetrile will not cure
cancer. But what they did not tell us is that all research
substantiates the fact that laetrile does aid in preventing and
treating cancer. It can even be had from raw almonds, although
not in large quantity. It is somewhat bitter in its pure form.
In an article in Nexus magazine Volume 15, no.1 entitled “The
Importance of Iodine for Good Health”, Dr. Donald W. Miller, Jr.
MD claims the people in the U.S. are extremely deficient in
iodine to the point of disease and suggests we need about 10
milligrams a day but are getting about one fortieth of that! He
relates this to cancer and especially breast cancer, ovarian and
Another major factor in the development of the conditions
leading to the deterioration of health is a stagnant lymph
system. The heart pumps the blood through the arteries to the
capillaries which distribute the blood to all the minute areas
of the body. The blood carries the nutrients with it. However,
the actual blood cells only touch a very small fraction of the
body cells. The blood does not deliver the nutrients to most of
the cells. Instead, the fluid of the blood (plasma) passes
through the capillary walls and forms the fluid the cells are
immersed in and the cells absorb these nutrients from this
fluid, now the interstitial fluid. The blood cells are left
behind in the capillaries.
The healthy body cells are alkaline. The interstitial fluid is
saline, alkaline and contains the nutrients for the cells. The
interior of each cell is alkaline. The cells have sensors which
draw in certain needed nutrients. If the nutrients in the
interstitial fluid is very far out of balance one or more
excessive nutrients will accumulate and block the flow of the
other nutrients to; and the wastes from; the cells.
Inside the cells are the mitochondria, the organs of the cell
that convert the nutrients within the cell. These mitochondria
function electrically. If the interstitial fluid is not composed
of the right balance of chemicals the electric flow will be
disrupted and the mitochondria will not function properly.
Therefore the nutrients will not be properly absorbed. The
commonest problem is an imbalance of the sodium to potassium
ratio and this ratio is critical. This fluid must also be
If either the sodium is too high or the
potassium too high it can suddenly become very serious, to the
point of death. However, if the imbalance is not too great, the
problem is often a low level health problem. In the modern diet
the sodium is almost always too high in relation to the
potassium. The salt substitute commonly sold in the stores is
potassium chloride. It tastes almost like common table salt. It
will bring the potassium level up and in most cases tend to
balance the sodium potassium ratio. Some drugs will seriously
wreck this ratio.
Clarence D. Cone, former head of the Molecular Biophysics
Laboratory at NASA’s Langley Research Center found that
“proliferation of malignant cells in cultures can be effectively
‘turned off’ by suitably lowering the intercellular sodium
concentration while elevating the potassium..."
amino acids (protein) in interstitial fluids also block this
passage of nutrients and toxins in and out of the cells. In the
western diet, proteins are usually too high in the diet, causing
at least some of this blockage of lymph fluids. This is why
almost every alternative treatment for cancer restricts the
consumption of proteins and most prohibit red meats from the
diet. The body should never be on a diet that does not allow the
normal body needs for protein, but should be limited to what it
does need. More is not better.
Any excessive nutrient can block the interstitial fluids from
transferring their nutrients to the cells and absorbing the
wastes. This can include sugars and this condition is related to
diabetes.The interstitial fluids become the lymph fluids once
they have delivered the nutrients to the cells and absorbed the
wastes from the cells. The fluids are now ready to return to the
blood. Neither the interstitial fluids nor the lymph fluids are
moved by the heart. They must be flushed through the healthy
tissues, then through the lymph glands. In the lymph glands they
are filtered for dangerous poisons such as from bites and
infections, processed to clean them up and eventually pass into
the veins, mixing back in with the blood cells.
to do this these lymph fluids must be moved by the new fluids
coming in, the general body movements or the diaphragm. When one
breathes deeply with the diaphragm, the lymph fluids gush
through the system. Some people breath so shallowly that they
lose their ability to move the diaphragm.
People who work hard physically or otherwise exercise heavily
breathe deeply with the diaphragm. Also their body movement
moves the fluids through the body. A person who is not used to
doing so and takes a deep breath with the diaphragm will often
feel dizzy momentarily. This is caused by the flushing of the
stagnant lymph fluids and thus the toxins through the brain.
Such dizziness is a sure sign that the persons’ lymph fluids are
stagnant. The lack of circulation of lymph fluids drastically
lowers ones health in general. It is essential when fighting
cancer and most other chronic diseases to get these fluids
moving properly and thus help to establish a proper “terrain”.
Another factor in cancer treatment is the attitude of the
patient. Does he have a will to live? Does he have a future he
wants to see? I once knew a 71 year old man who told me he and
his wife had toured the whole country before deciding where to
retire. They bought a beautiful home in a very good neighborhood
and had a very nice sail boat. They had just gotten their new
house fixed up the way they wanted it. Then while sailing one
day a small storm came up and they headed into their dock, but
had trouble docking the boat. After that his wife would not go
sailing again. They met while square dancing and had joined a
square dance club within walking distance of their house. But,
after a couple of years his wife had a disagreement with some of
the members and would not go square dancing again.
His wife spent all of her waking time cleaning. She took the
cook stove apart and cleaned behind it and the refrigerator
every day. She even climbed on top of the two story house and
swept the roof! She never stopped. He wanted her to spend some
time with him. His three children had not come to visit him as
he had expected. Other friends and relatives failed to make the
His wife’s daughter and son both moved to Florida.
Then they had an unusually cold winter. Now the wife decided
they had not moved far enough south and they were moving to
Florida. He called me up and told me his problems. He said he
was not moving to Florida. I asked him what he was going to do.
Was he going to stay there alone? “No!” Was he going to move
back with his family? “No!” How about moving to his brother’s?
“No!” Well what are you going to do? “I don’t know!”
Soon thereafter he called and told me he had cancer of the colon
and the doctors did not think they could operate or use any
other treatment. I told him of the Bio-Med Clinic in Tijuana and
he was ready to go but his wife would not hear of it. She talked
the doctor into telling him a new treatment had just come out
that would treat his condition. He waited and waited for the
treatment until he was not able to go to Mexico and then got his
treatment, from which he did not survive.
The point of
this story is that he had refused to accept any of the
alternatives he could see in life. He certainly did not want to
die. But he did not want to accept any of the alternatives he
could see. He needed a way to get some time with his wife and to
get his friends and relatives to visit him. His subconscious
mind found a solution to all of his problems (almost all).
I believe the subconscious mind obeys our directions to a very
large extent although not our wishes or desires. Remember the
story of Aladdin's Lamp. Be careful what you ask for. It is also
very much influenced by what it hears and believes, even while
asleep. The strong messages he was giving it left no choice but
death. But death by cancer was a very clever solution. If he was
dying of cancer, his wife would have to spend a lot of time
caring for him. His family and friends would have to come to
visit him. He would not have to move anywhere. The subconscious
found a solution to all of his requirements.
We must have a will to live, something to live for, some goal in
life, some interest in the future. When we want out of our
present circumstances, we have to plan the way out and carry out
our plans. If we leave it to our subconscious mind, we may not
like its solution. A strong feeling of being a victim in life
and a feeling that life is not fair, usually eventually leads to
There are several books by medical
doctors on this subject. One good one is “Mind as Healer, Mind
as Slayer”, by Kenneth. R. Pelletier.
Dr. Ryke Homer, MD, former head internist in the
oncology clinic at the University of Munich, Germany, has
developed a method of treating cancer and other serious
conditions which he calls “German New Medicine” His web site
Hamer claims a success rate of over 95% in cancer patients who
have not had chemotherapy, radiation, or surgery. His treatments
are psychological only.
In most cases of “spontaneous regression” the patient
has changed his mental attitude, his diet, has exercised and
adopted much better health habits. In the case of John Matzke it
seems probable from all we know that he had done all of this.
But he tells us he did one more important thing. John visualized
himself as being in perfect health. He visualized his blood as
healing his lung and pouring life into it. He visualized new
healthy cells replacing the diseased cells. He also visualized
the things he wanted to do in the future.
The power of the mind cannot be denied by any open minded person
that has investigated it. I have seen hundreds of people walk
barefooted across red hot coals that would fry meat instantly,
twice the heat of a frying pan, and do so slowly and calmly. I
have seen a seven year old boy led slowly over these super hot
coals and then go right back and do it again with no injuries
whatsoever. I have also seen non-believers run across the same
coals and receive severe burns. The difference? All in the mind.
