If you are already interested in a particular alternative cancer treatment, keep reading to understand the pros and cons of the treatment selection method you used. You may decide that you want to select an additional treatment using a different selection method.
Consider these facts about alternative cancer treatments:
Therefore people take three or even four treatments at the same time in order to increase their odds of success and to prevent the cancer cells from developing resistance to a single treatment. This web site supports the use of multiple treatments by:

Curse of the Products
Many people don't trust the information on web sites that sell products. However, this web site existed for six years, as the Cancell Home page, before any products, such as the Test Kit or hypnosis CDs, were offered. During that time, thousands of emails were answered without receiving any compensation. However, people requested more treatment options, so additional treatments were researched and presented (not sold).
With the additional treatments came the treatment selection problem. Most alternative cancer treatments work on most cancer types so you can't use your type of cancer to find the treatment that will work for you. Great strides were being made in energy medicine especially in treatment selection. This made it clear that an energy based test kit was the solution. Equipment for producing the Test Kit was procured and the Test Kit was offered on this web site. We know this hurt the not-for-profit image of the web site, but it should be clear from spending time here or from emailing a question that our main thrust remains:
- Free information concisely presented and constantly updated. This Home page displays a date at the top that indicates its last update. That date changes about twice a week.
- Free support for whoever needs it. Go to the Comments* page for email instructions.
The CDs (see below) were developed because cancer CDs being sold on the Internet contained fatal errors* based on a poor understanding of cancer. As a certified hypnotherapist* I knew that it had to be done correctly or people would miss the benefit of this excellent tool to get the body to remove the cancer.
No Profit from Treatments
The people who work on this web site* do not profit in any way from the sale of any alternative cancer treatments presented on this web site. This assures you of complete impartiality. More about alternativecancer.us* such as the web site history and a bio of the webmaster.
With the addition of more treatments, this web site started to expand. It is now over 200 pages worth of text. You may not be aware of all the things you can do to help your body get rid of cancer. A search system can not help you find the things you do not know about. That is why a phone consultation* can change someone who is only doing part of what they can do to a person with a full, clear, and documented plan.
There are two types of cancer cells that can resist cancer treatment:
- Multiple drug resistive cells. These cells contain a pump-like device that pumps harmful compounds out of itself. See the Paw Paw page.
- Conventional drug resistance. These cells do not have a pump. After you have used a treatment for a while, they prevent the treatment from being effective. Successful cancer patients prevent drug restive cells from developing by using three or more alternative cancer treatments, the cocktail. All compounds that would kill the cancer cell are considered by the cancer cell to be harmful.
Scientific proof of the health benefit of humor can be found as early as 1989 when the Journal of the American Medical Association published a study that showed that laughter therapy has an immediate symptom-relieving effect.
If you have purchased joke books in the past, you have probably been disappointed. The reason is that it takes years to develop a collection of truly good jokes and most writers only have one year to produce a book. This joke book is the product of over 15 years of collecting and rejecting. Each joke has stood the test of time. Each joke has been edited to remove unnecessary words. The result is 170 pages of really good, concisely written jokes.

Most people visiting this web site have some idea of how to select medicine. For most health problems, they can make good treatment selections, but alternative cancer treatments are different from other medicines:
- There are dozens of alternative cancer treatments.
- Most treatments only work on a minority of patients that try it. In other words there isn't a "best" treatment for a certain type or stage of cancer.
Therefore, people take multiple treatments to increase their odds. But, to really assure your success, consider using each of these different methods to select multiple treatments:
- Energy Medicine - Many conventional doctors are now adding Energy medicine in different forms to their arsenal. It provides a method to find the best alternative cancer treatment for a person based on that person's unique body chemistry. Learn more about this progressive method on the Test Kit* page. Learn the effects of wearing the energy signature of healing from a condition*.
- Worked for a Friend - This is not a bad idea if you have come to strongly believe in the treatment. Belief is strong medicine. However, when an alternative cancer treatment works for a friend we are usually surprised and think that our friend really found something special. This is not correct. They just found the treatment that worked for them.
- Information - Comparing the available information of different alternative cancer treatments can also boost belief in your selection. However, it is difficult to compare treatments because information is presented differently about each treatment on their web site. For that reason the Comparison table on the Compare Treatments* page was developed.
|Testimonials can be a very powerful tool to help in the healing process if used correctly. However, misuse of testimonials is the most common mistake people make. Reading testimonials is a poor method for making a treatment selection - any alternative cancer therapy with only a 5% success rate can still create many genuine and impressive testimonials. Use testimonials to boost your belief after you have selected your alternative cancer treatment using a better selection method like those described above.

Treatment Testing Methods
Here are two valid treatment testing methods for finding the treatment that works for you:
- Take each treatment that you are considering and closely monitor your response. This can take a couple of weeks.
- Test 12 Alternative Cancer Treatments using the Test Kit. A part of science few people know. This takes less than one hour.
Each of these methods are examined below.
Monitoring the affect of most other treatments is usually not difficult, but cancer makes everything difficult because:
- The effect of an anti-cancer treatment must be judged over weeks or months.
- Adding new treatments causes confusion and cancer patients can usually not resist adding new treatments when they learn about them.

Applied Kinesiology is an energetic testing technique that allows your body to pick the best treatment from a group. This technique is also called Behavioral Kinesiology or muscle testing, it is the main focus of the book "Power vs. Force" by David Hawkins, MD, PhD. The internationally renowned author and speaker Dr. Wayne Dyer** had this to say about that book, "Perhaps the most important and significant book I've read in the past ten years."
Test Kit Proof
The test procedure included with the Test Kit has an impressive method to made doubly sure that you found the best treatment based on the patient's body by finding the same treatment by two different approaches. It makes performing the test procedure one of the most proactive ways to interest someone in alternative cancer treatments.

Hypnosis - a Power Tool for Every Patient
Regardless of your treatment of choice, hypnosis can produce amazing results with very little effort. I have been a certified hypnotherapist* since 1992. The ten years I have spent researching alternative cancer allowed me to recognize the mistakes* that are being made on other hypnosis CDs for cancer. I decided to make these CDs because these mistakes are so prevalent
Why Two CDs?
Both Hyp ("Hyp" is pronounced "hip" as in hypnosis) No Cancer CDs use the same type of techniques employed by 159 terminal cancer patients to double their survival time*, but they have a major difference:
|Hyp No Cancer
This CD is directed towards a spontaneous remission. Spontaneous remissions are not as rare as previously believed. The Hypnosis CDs and Spontaneous Remissions* page explains how conventional medicine misses most spontaneous remissions.
|HYP No Cancer Lite
Does not contain the spontaneous remission phrasing. Look at the Induction Power* section of the Hypnosis page to see why these phrases may be too powerful for some people. Order CDs or MP3s.
A CD costs $24. Then ordered with a Test Kit, get 20% off and no additional shipping fee. To order CDs, go to the Hypnosis CDs and Spontaneous Remissions* page.
(The following crucial information is repeated a few times on this web site. It is always called the "Conflict Connection.") When using alternative cancer treatments, the greatest threat to your success is treatment conflicts. Some vitamins, minerals, and even herbs are known to conflict with different alternative cancer treatments.
From 1997 to 2001 this web site collected hundreds of case histories. They showed that more than 30% of the responders took substances that conflicted with each other.
To learn about possible conflicts:
- Go to the Comparison table*.
- Find the row for the treatment in which you are interested.
- Click on the number in the Compatibility column for that treatment. You will go to the "Compatibility" section on the page for that treatment.
The section just above the Comparison table explains other ways to use this information full table.
Keep it Simple
People who self-medicate are learning that it is wiser not to take so many supplements at once. This allows them to more easily tell which treatments work and which ones don't. They only take a treatment or supplement long enough to tell if it is working. If it is not working, they stop taking it. In this way they can try more treatments and they avoid conflicts.
Continuing to take a treatment because it might be helping even though a cancer is not going into remission, discourages finding the treatment that will work. When a person does a lot of research and decides that they have found a "great" treatment, it is difficult to stop taking it even if the cancer continues. However, it is essential to move on to find the treatment that works for an individual.
Although it is impossible to predict all the conflicts with an alternative cancer treatment, a person can test for conflicts. You can purchase a Test Kit and use the illustrated instructions to perform your own testing or bring the Test Kit to a practitioner who uses Kinesiology. To find such practitioners go to the Test Kit* page and click Locate a Practitioner in the Table of Contents.
There is a lot of news about German cancer clinics. Although they have one or two therapies that are not available in the United States, most of their therapies can be found in the US. Germany has strong restrictions on doctors and even stronger restrictions on supplements than the United States. Persecution of alternative doctors in Germany is very aggressive as demonstrated by the case Dr. Ryke Geerd Hamer who had a very interesting cancer treatment, but was forced to leave Germany due to persecution.
If you research these clinics you will hear the term electrodermal screening. This is the basis for muscle testing but it is not as reliable as muscle testing due to the verification that is possible with muscle testing by asking the inverse question, see the "Test Kit Proof" section just below.

- Whether or not each therapy is available in the your country.
- How long each therapy needs to continue.
- Whether or not you can continue each therapy when you return home.

Tools for Cancer Patients
This web site sells tools to support cancer patients. They differ from treatments and supplements in that they are not medicines and are not taken internally. The tools offered on this web site include:
|Use the Test Kit* to allow your body to select the best treatment.||Protection pendants* can protect you from cell phones, wi-fy and a plethora of electromagnetic pollution.|
|Our bodies are often not aware that tumors are a threat until it is too late. Hypnosis CDs* can send a clear message that the body needs to start to take care of this threat.||Recovery from cancer is more likely if the emotional component is addressed. This tool is the simplest and most effective method to remove emotional bocks to your healing. Tapping DVD*.|
|Laughter instantly reduces symptoms of a wide range of disorders. Order the joke book* and laugh your way to a recovery.||Energy medicine* is the medicine of the future. Wearing a pendant or a bracelet allows you to have the benefit of this technology every minute of every day.|
|Nothing on this web site is as helpful as a phone consultation*. It is the fastest way to assure the right comprehensive* approach for you.||When your cancer treatment starts working, your lymph system will need all the help it can get. This double roller massager* gets the lymph moving.|
Types of Cancer
Although conventional medicine would have us believe that there is a big difference between the different types of cancers (thus helping to mystify the disease), this contradicts the most basic observations. Many cancer tumors are only partly cancer cells. As the percent of cancer cells increases, cancer tumors begin to look more and more alike. This supports the 100 year old Trophoblast Theory of Cancer** which has never been disproved and which states that cancer is the growth of nondiferentiated fast growing healing cells (Trophoblasts) that the pancreas has failed to control.
The success or failure of an alternative cancer treatment seems to have more to do with the treatments compatibility with a person's energy or body chemistry than it has to do with cancer type or extent of the cancer. To learn how to use energy or body chemistry to determine the best alternative cancer treatment, go to the Test Kit section of this Home page.
More on types of cancer can be found in the Types of Cancer* section on the "Compare Treatments" page.
Alternative Cancer Treatments thanks for their support; Johnson mesothelioma lawyers group.
If you are actively researching conventional and alternative cancer treatments, you will often run into the five-year survival statistic. Like many statistics, the five-year survival statistic can be misleading. If you have the genes, diet, and lifestyle (stress, anger…) that has caused you to grow tumors, removing the tumors will not prevent you from growing more tumors. To stop growing tumors you must change your diet and lifestyle.
A person who took chemo and suffered the usual debilitating side effects has extremely high motivation to change his or her diet and lifestyle. A person who took a side-effect-free alternative cancer treatment may not feel as strongly motivated and may not make the changes needed to prevent reoccurrence. Therefore, how long a person remains tumor free after taking a cancer treatment is not an accurate measure of the effectiveness of the treatment. It is more likely a measure of how well that person changed their lifestyle.
Return to the Effectiveness Summary*.
Multiple Drug-resistant Cells
Most tumors contain a small percentage, approximately 2%, of MDR (multiple drug-resistant) cells. Chemo is not effective against these cells. After the first round of chemo, if the chemo is effective, all of the cells that are not MDR, are destroyed. Since this accounts for the vast majority of the tumor mass, the tumor appears to be effectively destroyed. However, the MDR cells remain and start to multiply. If the cancer reoccurs due to MDR cells, the new tumor is likely to be entirely MDR. The next time chemo is used, none of the cells will be destroyed because they are all MDR. This is why giving chemo after a cancer reoccurs often fails to have any effect. Only alternative health care has treatments that have been shown to be effective against MDR cells. These include Paw Paw* and Graviola. Ellagic acid is being used as a general cancer preventative.
Printing Alternative Cancer Treatment Information
If you are collecting information for someone who wants it printed out, consider these pages which are made for printing:
- What Happened to Good Medicine? Explains: why conventional doctors cannot prescribe plant-based medicine even when plant-based medicine is better, how cancer reoccurs, and why chemo should never be given the second time. Contains four concise pages including the color coded Comparison Table.
- Just the Comparison Table. Is a single made-for-printing page containing the table that compares 12 alternative cancer treatments. The colors in the Comparison Table (two sections above) are considered background colors and will not print if you try to print the current page you are on. Background colors are usually not printed unless you change your browser settings.
- Comments on the NCI Test Summary for Cancell. This rebuttal explains how the National Cancer Institute tried to mislead the public in their summary of their testing of Cancell. It is proof that doctors receive misleading information regarding alternative cancer treatments. Contains tables of the weight reduction data from NCI's own test that shows the tremendous effectiveness of Cancell.
If you want to give your friend or relative a gift that will support their search for the right alternative cancer treatment, consider giving them an Alternative Cancer Test Kit. Test kits are based on the principal that every medicine has an energy signature which our bodies can sense and respond to in testable ways. Learn more about the Test Kit.
Individual Treatment Information
After you have generated interest in alternative cancer treatments, you can print out pages for an individual cancer treatment in which your friend or relative shows interest. All the links on the Comparison Table* go to one of twelve pages that describe each of the twelve treatments.
Linus Pauling, the Nobel Prize-winning scientist, investigated the possibility of using vitamin C for cancer. One hundred terminal cancer patients were given 10 grams of vitamin C daily (2.5 grams four times per day). They lived an average of 210 days, compared with hospital records of 1,000 "matched controls" (similar patients) who averaged only 50 days. A follow-up showed an even wider gap between the vitamin C and control groups.
Ten grams of vitamin C a day is a tremendous amount. Due to the acid nature of vitamin C, such a large amount is likely to produce digestion distress unless a buffered type of vitamin C such as Ester-C is used.
Vitamin C is believed to reduce the effectiveness of:
- Paw Paw
- Graviola including the Ellagic Insurance Formula from Greenwood Health which contains Graviola.
Natural or Synthetic Vitamin C
If you are even slightly interested in taking natural vitamin C, Camu Camu is worthy of consideration. It contains powerful phytochemicals with health benefits, including the amino acids serine, valine, and leucine, and more Vitamin C than any other known plant in the world. Camu Camu has a surprising range of therapeutic effects. People have found that Camu-Camu is energizing, mood-lifting and highly effective in strengthening the immune system. These benefits are in themselves a significant testament to the benefits of taking a natural form of Vitamin C. Camu Camu is easily found on the Internet and is not expensive.
A Better Vitamin C
|Lypo-Spheric Vitamin C* is able to produce serum levels of Vitamin C nearly double those thought theoretically possible with any oral form of Vitamin C.||Do-it-yourself procedure**|
If you decide to use vitamin C as your main therapy, there are aspects of your recovery that you need to know about in order to obtain a comprehensive approach* and assure your success. Such an approach:
- Is different for each patient.
- Needs clear documentation tailored to the patient.
- Requires the guidance of a knowledgeable person.
Angiogenesis inhibitors stop the growth of blood vessels to tumors. This web site describes three alternative cancer treatments that act as angiogenesis inhibitors: Cantron, Protocel, and Paw Paw. Go to the Comparison Table* for more information on these treatments.
There is some evidence that the conventional angiogenesis inhibitors may actually encourage angiogenesis in some situations. Once again making conventional medicine a scary place to try to get healthy.
Using Alternative Cancer Treatments While Taking Chemo
There are three methods to reduce the side effects of chemo:
- Supplements - oncologists often instruct patients to discontinue all supplements when taking chemo. This is most unfortunately because some supplements such as Cantron, Ellagic Acid, and mushrooms formulas effectively reduce the side effects of chemo. This would allow a patient to take a higher dose of chemo. Most oncologists know, that the more chemo you can withstand, the better chance chemo has of completely breaking up the tumor mass. Unfortunately, not all cancer cells thus broken up are dead which is why you need to inhibit metastases while taking chemo.
- Therapies that help a person to keep a positive outlook while taking chemo are essential as is removing emotional blocks to healing. Ignoring the spirit and emotions is a major reason treatments fail. A Comprehensive approach*.
- Fasting - in theory fasting for two days before taking chemo may protect healthy cells from the side effects of chemo. It is only in the animal test stages, but the testing so far is encouraging. Read the related Science Daily article**.
It seems clear that a comprehensive plan needs to be developed for each individual who wants to reduce side effects while taking chemo. The easiest and most effective way to develop such a plan is to have a phone consultation*.
House Work Help for Women Taking Chemo
Here is a cleaning service that provides FREE housecleaning one time per month for 4 months for women taking chemo. To sign up and have her doctor fax a note confirming the treatment. Cleaning for a Reason** will have a participating maid service in her zip code area arrange for the service.
Consider using chemo without the side effects. Consider using Insulin Potentiation Therapy (IPT). IPT makes cell membranes more permeable, and increases uptake of drugs into cells. IPT selectively targets tumor cells, which usually have more insulin receptors than normal cells. It also makes tumor cells more susceptible to chemo by modifying cell metabolism. As a result cancer patients can greatly reduce chemo dosage (reduce it to only about 10%) and eliminate most side effects while increasing the effectiveness of chemo. The IPT web site** is run by Chris Duffield, Ph.D. who did IPT research at Stanford University School of Medicine.

The Absurdity of Conventional Treatments Every year in the United States, more people die from the side effects of pharmaceutical drugs than die in car accidents, and cancer treatments are the worst of conventional treatments.
When researching alternative cancer treatments many people turn to PubMed to find research on alternative cancer treatments. If a person discovers that there are none or very few research papers on PubMed for a specific alternative cancer treatment, they often think that the treatment can't be any good. This is a mistake.
The majority of research papers in PubMed are from peer-reviewed journals. That term should really be “peer approved” research papers. In other words some researchers in the cancer area must approve the research paper before the journal will accept the research paper. The problem is that most funding for cancer research comes from grant awarding organizations that are strongly influenced by pharmaceutical companies. Any researcher that approves a paper on an alternative cancer treatment is very likely to be ostracized by the grant awarding organizations. So there is much to lose when a researcher approves a paper on alternative cancer treatments and nothing to gain.
If you have read Quackwatch written by Stephen Barrett and suspect that alternative cancer treatments represent a fraud, consider reading this page: Quackwatch - Is the Fox Guarding the Chicken Coop?**
A good example of how Quackwatch operates is this Quackwatch statement:
"IPT (Insulin Potentiation Therapy) is based on the notion that intravenous insulin increases the effect of medications"
The basis of IPT is significantly different. IPT bonds medications to insulin. Since cancer cells have the strongest demand for insulin in the body, the medication goes primarily to cancer cells. Notice how the above Quackwatch statement makes it seem that a patient is merely given insulin with the medication. The difference is tremendous.
This Webmaster's Quackwatch Experience
My own experience with Stephen Barrett was as follows: in order to have him correct misstatements regarding the testing of Cancell, I mailed Stephen Barrett the NCI test results for Cancell. Despite the fact that I mailed these test results to him three times, he continued to claim that he never received them and that he was unable to view them on my web site. Go to the bottom of the printable page of Comments on the NCI Test Summary for Cancell* Can you see the test results?
Barrett Claims to be a Consumer Advocate
Paraphrased from "Is Stephen Barrett a Quack?"** by Ray Sahelian, M.D.**
You can read Quackwatch till you are fast asleep and you are not likely to ever read an article about inaccurate promotion or misleading marketing practices by the pharmaceutical industry. Why is this? Why has Barrett spent hardly any time pointing out the billions of dollars wasted each year by consumers on certain prescription and non-prescription pharmaceutical drugs that don't work? If he truly claims to be a true consumer advocate, isn't it his responsibility to make sure the big scams are addressed first before focusing on the smaller scams?

Chemo Causes Metastasis
As reported at the 27th Annual San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium, Dec 2004, (abstract 6014), German investigators from Friedrich-Schiller University in Jena, have shown that taxol (the "gold standard of chemo") causes a massive release of live cancer cells into circulation.
Such a release of cancer cells would result in extensive metastasis months or even years later, long after the chemo would be suspected as the cause of the spread of the cancer. This little known horror of conventional cancer treatment needs to be spread far and wide, but it is not even listed in the side effects of taxol.
Androgen Deprivation Can Cause Metastasis
Androgen Deprivation is a popular prostate cancer treatment. The results of a paper published by David Berman, an assistant professor of pathology, urology and oncology at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and a long list of doctors and which was published in the Oct. 1 issue of Cancer Research, states that using Androgen Deprivation makes it "more likely to spread (prostate cancer cells) throughout the body."

Effect of Chemo on Alternative Treatments
Dr Ozell of Turkey documented a 70% success rate for his cancer patients using a water extract of the Nerium Oleander plant. However, patients who had chemotherapy or radiation only had a 30% success rate.
While taking any alternative cancer treatment, it is essential to avoid any chlorinated water. Most tap water is chlorinated and even some bottled water is chlorinated. It is best to contact the manufacturer to verify that there is no chlorine in their water.
"New, Hopeful" Treatments
Every few months, new treatments appear that, according to their developers, offer new hope for this or that cancer. This occurs because research centers that have something promising receive more funding. Read the first section of the Conventional Cancer Treatments* page.
Doctors with Single Cures
The problems with many doctors is that they tend to find what they consider to be the best treatment and use it on everyone. To understand why this is a poor treatment selection method, go to The Solution - Understand Treatment Selection* page.
Alternative Cancer Treatment Centers
A large number of cancer clinics or "centers" have appeared in the past few years that claim to offer complimentary and alternative medicine (CAM). I have investigated a number of these centers and found that they only offered the usual conventional cancer treatments plus the least effective alternative techniques such as low fat diets and visualization. When I asked them if they offer any of the well established alternative cancer treatments such as Cancell, Paw Paw, Cesium Chloride, Essiac tea, Hydrazine Sulfate, MGN-3, OPC's, or 714-x, the answer was "no" time after time.
A Few Exceptions
Some CAM clinics do have useful therapies such as hypothermia, but their main thrust usually remains toward conventional treatments for which they make much more money. If you want to pursue serious alternative cancer treatments, conventional doctors will not help you. To the contrary, oncologists are highly skilled at talking patients out of taking alternative cancer treatments. Even if they knew about alternative cancer treatments, most states have had laws passed to make it a felony for a conventional doctor to even talk about alternative treatments.
Cancer patients are lead to believe that they should not waste time on alternative cancer treatments because their failure will allow the cancer to grow more. This reasoning is simply wrong. Back in the 1950's a simple no pill approach was developed that stopped tumor growth in 14 out of 15 terminal cancer patients who were not doing any other treatment. This approach depends on many diverse factors such as where you live, when you work... it is also very difficult if not impossible to set up on the road. The only way to set up such a plan is with a phone consultation*.
There are a few real alternative clinics in the US, however, they exist on the edge of persecution and they don't advertise like the CAM clinics. I can't write about them or call attention to them on a web site. Going to such a clinic as an out patient allows a patient to have all their at home support which means so much. If you email Paul Winter and include your location, I will see if there are any real alternative cancer clinics in your area.

Is Biopsy Safe?
Quoted from a ten page report by by Ralph Moss, Ph.D., Are Needle Biopsies Safe?
"A June 2004 report from the John Wayne Cancer Institute in California has rekindled a long-standing debate over whether or not needle biopsies are safe."
"This is a rigorous study, and it comes with an excellent pedigree."
"The study found that women who had had either kind of needle biopsy were fifty percent more likely to have cancer in their sentinel nodes than women who underwent the surgical removal of the whole tumor with excisional biopsy."
Safe Cancer Testing

John W. Gofman, M.D., Ph. D. Professor Emeritus, Molecular and Cell Biology University of California, Berkeley and perhaps the most experienced man on the planet regarding medical radiation performed a study that concluded:
Medical radiation is a highly important cause (probably the principal cause) of cancer mortality in the United States during the Twentieth Century. Medical radiation means, primarily, exposure by X-rays (including fluoroscopy and CT scans).
Medical radiation, received even at very low and moderate doses, is an important cause of death from Ischemic Heart Disease; the probable mechanism is radiation-induction of mutations in the coronary arteries, resulting in dysfunctional clones (mini-tumors) of smooth muscle cells.

Despite the yearly claims of great new cancer drugs*, the percentage of Americans who die each year from cancer has remained pretty much the same since 1970. Every year in the United States, more people die from the side effects of pharmaceutical drugs than die in car accidents. However, people have been so brainwashed by the media which portrays conventional Western medicine in glowing terms that it takes massive information to present an accurate picture of this widespread medical failure.

Immune System Contradiction
There are many treatments and clinics claiming to fight cancer by boosting the immune system. Tumor cells are made by your body, they are not foreign. Your immune system is designed to attack foreign organisms. However, as explained on the Trophoblast Theory of Cancer web site:
This apparent contradiction is understood when you consider that bacteria and parasites damage the body and cause the body to go into repeated healing mode. Repeated healing can eventually lead to cancer if secretions from the pancreas fail to stop trophoblast cells (used in healing) from multiplying (this is the Trophoblast theory of cancer). If the immune system can be augmented sufficiently to remove most of the bacteria and parasites in the body, the amount of healing happening in the body is greatly reduced. This removes the strain on the pancreas caused by all that healing activity. Now the limited output (due to modern diet) of the pancreas can concentrate on the tumor which is just a large collection of trophoblast cells.
The cancer theory promoted by conventional medicine states that cancer is a growth of abnormal cells caused by a sequence of DNA mutations. This mutation theory of cancer was vigorously supported by MIT's Dr. Robert A. Weinberg whose findings were well reported and received with open arms by cancer research doctors who knew they could get millions of dollars for mapping cancer DNA, a job that would take years for each "type" of cancer.
Dr. Weinberg reversed his original theory around after discovering that less than one DNA base in a million appeared to have been miscopied, concluding that not enough defect existed to cause cell mutation:
Natl. Acad. Sci. USA Vol. 93, pp. 6665-6670, June 1996 Cell Biology Loss of oncogenic ras expression does not correlate with loss of tumorigenicity in human cells “it is now clear that oncogenic ras expression is not sufficient to create the malignant state in primary human cells”
Strengthening the immune system can help the body remove cancer cells which are dead of dying. Many people have mistakenly assumed a direct connection and this can mislead a patient into ignoring pancreatic health. People who understand the importance of pancreatic health use pancreatic enzymes. To and see compare two pancreatic enzymes go to the Other Treatments and Supplements* page.
Proponents of the immune system approach claim that cancer cells have damaged DNA so the immune system will attack them. This is misleading because only a small percentage of tumor cells have damaged DNA also tumor cells are surrounded by collagen which the immune system cannot penetrate.
There is a mechanism in your body for removing tumor cells and it is stressed by our life style and diet, but this system is not the immune system. To read about the this system, go to the Trophoblast Theory of Cancer** web page.
Most benign tumors do not grow with the same mechanism as malignant tumors Benign tumors do not have the high-ATP (adenosine triphosphate) cells that is typical of malignant tumors. Some are inflammatory in nature and are basically just swellings. Still some people with benign tumors have had success using Cancell (Cantron and Protocel). Also, Paw Paw has many active ingredients some of which may have a positive effect on benign tumors.
Children with Cancer in Hospitals
The AMA has forced laws to be written that allow doctors to do anything they want to your child with or without your permission. These laws were passed to rescue children from people who held religious beliefs against all treatments. This is a belief held by Christian Scientists. Unfortunately, these laws are now being used to prevent parents from treating their children with alternative cancer treatments.
One woman put her son in a Utah children's hospital for cancer. During his short stay, three children died as the result of their first chemo treatment (the deaths were not reported as due to chemo). Two other mothers became terrified that chemo would be given to their children and had to sue the hospital to get their children out.
Hospitals will administer any drug they want with or without your permission. They will take your child away if you disagree with their treatment even if it makes your child worse. You can get the paperwork that you must sign for admission as soon as possible and take it to a lawyer (there is usually a week or two between the decision to hospitalize and the actual hospitalization). At least you will know what rights you are giving up.
Even children not in a hospital are likely to have their treatment controlled by the state and not the parents. Smart parents take childern out of a hospitat, and accross state borders to avoid "treatments" that the original hospital was forcing on a young patient.

Volunteer Action You Can Take
Request Action from the FDA** Write the FDA and request that they encourage testing of alternative cancer treatments Cantron, Protocel, Paw Paw, Graviola, Emulsified vitamin A, IPT, Hydrazine Sulfate, Cesium Chloride, Essiac tea, 714-x, Laetrile (B17), MGN-3, and OPC's.
Support This Web Site
Please consider purchasing a Test Kit* or a hypnosis CD*. Test Kits are one of the few proactive, hands-on things you can perform with a cancer patient. This can greatly prevent the feeling of abandonment that is often experienced. Not only is it almost always an interesting exercise, but it encourages your friend or loved one to think more about alternative treatments. The CD is so beautifully packaged and recorded that it just can't fail to be a treasured gift.

The Disclaimer for alternativecancer.us
This web site is not intended to provide medical advice to anyone regarding the type of cancer treatment they should use. This web site simply provides educational information about various cancer treatments. The decision to take alternative or conventional treatments is your responsibility. It is never the choice of a doctor, health advisor, or writer. It is your body and anyone who tells you what treatment to take instead of providing information about all your treatment options and letting you decide, is abusing their position.
A patient should realize that delaying the use of conventional treatments can reduce the effectiveness of these treatments. This is because most conventional treatments have dangerous side effects so their use must be limited. For example, if you delay the use of chemo to shrink a tumor, the tumor may grow to a size that would require more chemo than you can safely take. This is not true for most alternative treatments which can usually be given for years without dangerous side effects.
To complicate matters, taking conventional treatments before using alternative treatments, can often reduce the effectiveness of the alternative treatments. This is because conventional treatments, such as chemo and radiation often create so much damage to a person's body that the body is too weak to support the use of alternative treatments.
With such complications to consider, smart patients are making treatment decisions in a relaxed, pressure-free environment. A doctor's office is far from a pressure-free environment. Smart patients are making treatment decisions at home, alone, without anyone around to make the decision excessively emotional and with all their information at their fingertips.
