This article is the result of a recent visit with my Mom, just a few days before Christmas.  She had just received a phone call from a life-long friend, and was saddened to hear of her news.  This friend has been battling cancer for some time now, and her doctors had told her they had done everything they could for her.

She had just been given three months to live.  I phoned this lady that same evening and asked if she was willing to try natural treatments for her cancer.  She was very enthused, and asked me to send her our conversation in writing.

Here is my letter.  Some of this information has been covered in past articles of the TKC, and other parts I will go into more detail in future articles.

Hi Marion, It was nice chatting with you the other evening.  I am very sorry to hear of your health problems, but never give up on your Faith.

Unfortunately our medical system here in Canada and the U.S. only believe in two methods of treating all diseases …. either cut it out or treat it with drugs (poisons).  Around the world many alternative methods have a far greater success rate with all sicknesses, and all of these treatments have one thing in common …. strengthen the body’s immune system so that it can heal itself.

As you know, I am not a doctor, and I don’t have a medical background, but because of all of the cancer in our family, I have done a lot of research over the years on natural cures.  We get sick for a variety of reasons, but mainly due to our poor eating habits.  Even if we try to eat healthy nowadays, we still fall short of a good nutritional diet, due to the poor quality of foods in our super-markets.  All fruits and vegetables are covered in pesticides, which only help to destroy our digestive systems.

So …. here are some suggestions for strengthening your immune system.  You don’t have to try them all, but I would encourage you to get started right away.

Juicing:  This should be considered the first treatment for everybody for any type of sickness.  (I’ve been juicing daily for nearly 20 years now, for preventative purposes).  There’s nothing better for your system then fresh, raw vegetable juice (not store bought).  Buy a good juicer (approximately $100) and get as much fresh juice into your system as possible.  Many doctors who believe in the merits of juicing recommend a juice fast to begin with, for a minimum of 7 to 10 days (one glass of juice every hour of the day).  I would recommend juicing carrots, any green leafy vegetables, beets and apples (all organic, if possible).  Only make enough juice for what you can consume.  (If you store the juice, it loses its benefits).

Vitamin C: We should be getting a minimum of 3 grams of Vitamin C every day, and much more when we are sick.  You can’t take too much Vitamin C, despite the fact medical doctors will tell you otherwise.  I would recommend a minimum of 10 grams a day.  (Swiss is a good manufacturer, if you don’t already take vitamins).  Some doctors have been known to treat cancer with megadoses of vitamin C, as much as 250 grams a day!

Super-foods: Here are two foods, known as “super-foods”, that many claim to be the perfect foods for both prevention and cures of all sicknesses:  chlorella and spirulina. Both chlorella and spirulina are plants that grow in fresh water …. a form of algae. If you can eat these two foods every day, that would be excellent (health store?).  Otherwise, you can get each of them in a vitamin.  I take both of them daily …. again I know Swiss makes them.  You can’t overdose on either of these foods …. the more you eat, the more beneficial they are.

Together these two superfoods re-build the immune system, detoxify the body, and fight off disease.  The minimum amount in vitamin form that you should be taking is: chlorella …. 10 grams a day and spirulina …. 20 grams a day

Garlic:  Another miracle food …. eat a clove a day (or more), if possible.

Essiac: If you’ve never heard of Essiac before, it has a fascinating story to it. It was originally a combination of 4 herbs used by a nurse (Rene Caisse …. Essiac is her name spelled backwards) to cure literally hundreds of cases of cancer a few decades ago.  Unfortunately our good ol’ medical people put a stop to its production once she passed away, but it can be found in health stores as a tea.  Is it as effective as the original??? My guess is no, but I am sure it is still beneficial.

Apricot seeds: The main ingredient is Laetrille, also known as Vitamin B17.  It is widely known as a cancer beater around the world.  You should only eat 4 or 5 at a time, about 4 times a day.  I don’t know where you would buy apricot seeds …. I tried one of the larger health stores in Kingston and they don’t carry them.

Hydrogen peroxide 35% (food grade): There is a natural occurrence of hydrogen peroxide within us.  We need oxygen in our cells.  When our cells lack oxygen, our bodies weaken and we become sick.  Most diseases, including cancer, cannot survive in an oxygen-rich body.  Many people drink hydrogen peroxide, in a diluted state, to replenish the oxygen in their body. It is recommended that you take 3 drops of hydrogen peroxide in a glass of water (or fruit juice) 3 times a day …. when you get up in the morning, about midday and when you go to bed at night.  Increase this by 1 drop a day.  (For example, Day 2:  4 drops in a glass of water in the morning, 4 drops around midday and 4 drops at night-time).  Continue to increase a drop a day until you are drinking 25 drops in a glass of water 3 times a day.  (The more drops you take, the worse the taste …. stay at a level you are comfortable with if you can’t make it to 25 drops in a glass).  Stay at this level until your sickness is gone …. then decrease it a drop per day back to 3 drops.

Flaxseed oil and low fat cottage cheese: It’s named the Budwig diet after the scientist who discovered this cancer cure. Mix 2 tablespoons of flaxseed oil with ¼ cup of low fat cottage cheese and mix together in a bowl. Add berries, water, etc. (whatever it takes to get it down) and take every morning. This has been one of the most popular alternative cancer therapies for decades.

Mom was telling me your son lives close by.  If interested, have him search the Internet for natural cures for cancer.  You will be amazed at how many treatments there are for beating cancer without poisonous drugs.

I have read books and watched videos on many people who have defeated cancer naturally.  Remember, by strengthening your immune system, not only can you beat cancer, you have less chance of it returning.

We will keep you in our prayers! Love, Rick & Barb
