AFTER SURGERY, CHEMOTHERAPY AND/OR RADIATION, WHAT NEXT?

Dr. Philip Binzel, in his book, Alive and Well (1994), states:

There is nothing in surgery that will prevent the spread of cancer. There is nothing in radiation that will prevent the  spread of the disease. There is nothing in chemotherapy that will prevent the spread of the disease. How do we know? Just look at the statistics! There is a statistic known as “survival time.” Survival time is defined as that interval of time between when the diagnosis of cancer is first made in a given patient and when that patient dies from his disease. In the past fifty years, tremendous progress has been made in the early diagnosis of cancer. In that period of time, tremendous progress had been made in the surgical ability to remove tumors. Tremendous progress has been made in the use of radiation and chemotherapy in their ability to shrink or destroy tumors. But, the survival time of the cancer patient today is no greater than it was fifty years ago. What does this mean? It obviously means that we are treating the wrong thing! We are treating the symptom — the tumor, and we are doing absolutely nothing to prevent the spread of the disease. The only thing known to mankind today that will prevent the spread of cancer within the body is for that body’s own defense mechanisms to once again function normally. That’s what nutritional therapy does. It treats the defense mechanism, not the tumor. (page 69)

I am not opposed to the use of radiation. I am not opposed to the use of chemotherapy. There are times when a small amount of radiation for a short period of time can relieve pain and/or be life-saving to a patient. There are times when a small amount of chemotherapy for a short period of time can do the same. It is not the use of these that I so vehemently oppose, it is their abuse. The theory used in this country is that, if a little does some good, a whole lot more will do a whole lot better. Patients are getting radiation and chemotherapy who do not need it. Those who do need it are often getting far more than they need, thereby doing them much more harm than good. (page 71)

Frequently Asked Question 4

I have been on metabolic therapy for 4 weeks now. The lump seems to have gotten bigger with some swelling. Why is that?

Dr Kelley, in One Answer to Cancer, explains that as one goes on Metabolic Therapy, the malignant tumor masses often continue to grow temporarily (bold mine) before ones normal metabolic functions can take over.

Also, once started on Metabolic Therapy, the objective of which is to supply the body with adequate pancreatic enzymes to properly digest food and stop the disease process, some swelling can be expected once liquid debris is produced from the pancreatic enzymes’ digestion of the malignant tumor masses and cells. The swelling, frequently misinterpreted and often scaring the cancer victim, is actually temporary and subsides as the liquid debris is “gobbled up” by white blood cells and removed from the body by way of bile from the liver, which goes to the colon and out, as urine from the kidneys and out through the bladder, and by way of skin perspiration as well as hair and nail growth.

Along with temporary swelling, one other misinterpreted part of Metabolic Therapy is an increase in the number of white blood cells which is actually ‘considered to be a good sign’ as it indicates that the body’s defense system is effectively responding to facilitate proper disposal of liquid debris and toxins.

B17 poultice for malignant ulcers

It was Dr. Manuel Navarro who suggested pulped kamoteng kahoy for the malignant ulcers of my indigent patients.

My first poultice was crude and messy: grated kamoteng kahoy pulped with mortar and pestle, then applied directly on the breast ulcer. Though it worked, actually stopped the oozing on the first day, the problem was clearing off the previous application without abrading scabs that had formed. Continue reading

The Importance of Detoxification in Cancer Therapy

Daily, everyone produces malignant tumor cells and, daily, most everyone’s pancreas produces adequate pancreatin to digest the food they eat AND these malignant tumor cells. It is when one’s pancreas fails to produce the necessary pancreatin to accomplish these tasks that a disease “process” takes place which we correctly call Cancer. (OAC, p. 20)

The real problem in ANY cancer therapy is clearing up the body of toxins which accumulate as the tumor is dissolved. Continue reading
