Alternative to Chemotherapy

One of the groups I belong to sent me this message.  I’d like to say this with everyone .  I hope, too, anyone who reads this would also share this article.


Cancer Update from Johns Hopkins Hospital

1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells
do not show  up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few
billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to
detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.

2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person’s lifetime

3. When the person’s immune system is strong the cancer cells
will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.

4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple
nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food
and lifestyle factors.

5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and
including supplements will strengthen the immune system.

6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastro-intestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.

7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages
healthy cells, tissues and organs.

8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.

9 When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various s kinds of infections and complications.

10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.

11. An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells by not feeding it with the foods it needs to multiply.


a. Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells. Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses but only in very small amounts.  Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in color. Better alternative is Bragg’s aminos or sea salt.

b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soya milk cancer cells are being starved.

c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.

d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, eeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes to nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells. To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh
vegetable juice
(most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).

e. Avoid high caffeine. Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer-fighting properties. Water-best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.

12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines becomes put refied and leads to more toxic buildup.

13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body’s killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.

14. Some supplements build d u p the immune system (IP6, Flor-ssence, Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the bodies own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body’s normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.

15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor. Anger, unforgiveness and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn
to relax and enjoy life.

16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.
1. No plastic containers in micro.
2. No water bottles in freezer.
3. No plastic wrap in microwave.

Johns Hopkins has recently sent this out in its newsletters.
This information is being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center as well.
Dioxin chemicals cause cancer, especially breast cancer. Dioxins are highly
poisonous to the cells of our bodies. Don’t freeze your plastic bottles with
water in them as this releases dioxins from the plastic.

Recently, Dr. Edward Fujimoto, Wellness Program Manager at Castle Hospital, was on a TV program to explain this health hazard. He talked about dioxins and how bad they are for us.. He said that we should not be heating our food in the microwave using plastic containers. This especially applies to foods that contain fat. He said that the combination of fat, high heat, and plastics releases dioxin into the food and ultimately into the cells of the body. Instead, he recommends using glass, such as Corning Ware, Pyrex or ceramic containers for heating food.  You get the same results, only without the dioxin. So such things as TV dinners, instant ramen and soups, etc., should be removed from the container and heated in something else.  Paper isn’t bad but you don’t know what is in the paper. It’s just safer to use tempered glass, Corning Ware, etc. He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food restaurants moved away from the foam containers to paper. The dioxin problem is one of the reasons.

Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as Saran, is just as dangerous
when placed over foods to be cooked in the microwave. As the food is nuked, the high heat causes poisonous toxins to actually melt out of the plastic wrap and drip into the food. Cover food with a paper towel instead.

    look forward to hearing from you

  2. ghanshyam says:

    very good information help to educate the cancer patient
    and care taker to know what is the actual cause.
    but why all dr. are suggesting chemo after surgery
    for all the patients. medical society should educate the
    patients to know the alternate treatment to chemo.
    and help the needy .

      im not really a medical expert, i’ve taken an interest because my dad recently lost his battle to this ailment. based from experience, there is nothing much we can do if the patient refuses chemo. on our part we have to be understanding on this. we can, however, continue to give nutritious , organic food. be on the look out also for depression. i believe that once depression hits a patient, the will to fight and the immune system suffers. its very difficult, but with prayers, proper diet, excercise, and positivity, recovery may not be far away.

  7. While the information is good and would help enhance the health of one’s body, it did not come from Johns Hopkins.

    In a wellness model, the causes of sickness fall into one of two categories or both. They are toxicity and deficiency. Over time, toxicity and deficiency in how we move(read: exercise), eat and think drive the body toward sickness and disease.

    With that concept in mind, I would recommend adding lots of fresh water with lemon, fresh vegetabs and fruits. This can be done through juicing as Dr. Gerson showed years ago. Clean meats that are grass fed, free range. Minimize toxins such as grains, processed foods, dairy products and made up sugars, trans fats etc. Add exercise in the form of walking and build up daily. Chiropractic care is a must as it will address deficiency in the spinal movement specifically which in turn drives the body into chronic stress and sickness. Finally adding in a good meditative time along with powerful, positive affirmations.

    All of this has been shown scientifically to give your body the sufficiency and purity you need to move your body into the state of homeostatic cell function(read: Balance) that will create health!

    That was a really good article

    I have a relative that is having a health challenge with cancer, decided not to use any traditional medicine and went for the help of the institute in Wheaton, IL. TotalHealthInstitute . com that is following all of the above recommended advice. There are great testimonials and information, inpatient and outpatient as well.
    No sugar is allowed, neither are fruits, meats or dairy, unless the will of the patient is weak and they decide to still eat some against recommendation which will slow down recovery. My relatives also considered the Gerson Institute in Mexico, which has great testimonials, but they went for the closer institute -total health instutute in Wheaton IL.Their diet is 100% raw and there are many patients in the last 20 years, that have overcome their challenges, such as diabetis, weight loss, multiple sclerosis, thyroid problems, alergies, cancers and many others. They eat variety of seeds, sprouts, vegetables and juices. My relative is thriving being on this journey for about 8 months now and getting better each day. At the institute they don’t look at the disease, but at the very thorough blood test and work on bringing you blood cells to a balance and immunity, so they can fight off any kind of health challenge…
    If the truth about the healing benefits of real food, designed by God (or some can call it nature), is widely spread, then the medical industry, pharmaceutical industry, and all their equipment will have to be thrown away. So the truth is hidden and the Doctors that heal people the natural way, such as Gerson, are threatened by FDA, AMA crew, killed as Gerson was poisoned. His institute moved to Mexico to continue their work… It is not of any benefit to anyone that is taking profit from the traditional medicine to help people live healthy, but dependant on expensive medicine till the end of their lives. There are great movies on the topics of the truth about Food we are consuming. ” Forks over Knives” (netflix has it or your local library), “Eating 3rd Edition” (even you tube has it in parts), ” Fat , sick and nearly dead”, ” Food Inc”…
    I wish you great journey and to educate yourselves about the truth, and be leaders of your health, not followers (sheep) that only trust their medical doctor and deteriorate slowly with tons of pill boxes near the bed….
