Cancer is a sign of a body, tissues and cells that have been abused for decades. And, because cancer cells are OUR very own cells (dysfunctional, delinquent and perverted as they may be) anything that "kills" cancer cells is in essence suicide medicine that ultimately kills the very body it is supposedly healing! That's why chemotherapy is such a miserable experience and is rarely effective. The idea of using supplements to address what is essentially a trashed out biological system (I don't mean to be mean or graphic, but think putrid, fetid, stinky landfill) is naive and simplistic, like trying to eliminate the horrific smell of a sewage dump with a stick of incense. And herbal formulas like Hoxsey, Essiac and Cantron (which bills itself as an “amazing bio-electrical wellness formulation”) etc. while generally non-toxic, are not much more effective.
Healthy cells become cancer cells as a survival mechanism in response to long-term deprivation of oxygen and energizing nutrients which leads to an inability to produce energy AND eliminate toxins. The net result is a starved, suffocated and toxic cell and ultimately multiple cells then tissues and organs. The hallmark signs of a cell gone cancerous, i.e. rapid chaotic growth/division and the greedy utilization of sugar and nutrients, represent a cell’s desperate attempt to survive under conditions of toxicity, nutrient deficiency and oxygen deprivation.
Because this process takes many years to develop, reversal, while certainly possible (according to medical researcher Anthony Campbell (www.acampbell.org.uk) over 20 research articles on spontaneous remissions are available on Medline), for the most part effectively addressing the scourge of cancer requires converting the body’s biochemical environs to a state that is non-conducive to carcinogenesis.
Thus, hawking herbs and supplements or dispensing medical poison to “cure” the condition by (supposedly) destroying cancer cells is ignorant at best and exploitative and predatory at worst. Not that there aren't charlatans and hucksters everywhere who will be glad to exploit the sick, scared, desperate, innocent and gullible by selling "magic" cancer-"killing" formulas. As always Caveat Emptor, let the buyer beware!
On the other hand, using supplements (especially intravenously), food/diet, oxygenation and other health strategies are important for providing the body with what it needs to maintain its health, vigor, immunity and defense systems. Vitamin C, glutathione-building NAC and glutamine, organic cold-processed whey protein, fermented foods and probiotics, essential fats, The Mighty 90 essential nutrients, fasting CRON (Calorie Restriction Optimum Nutrition) Diet, laying off sugar and processed, supermarket, restaurant foods are also advisable. Bottom line: if you are dealing with cancer or any other degenerative state rather than thinking of killing or curing, consider supplementing and making lifestyle choices (including spiritual, mental and emotional techniques) and doing what it takes to create a healthy body and biochemical environment in a manner that is no different than addressing the needs of a well body that is not confronted with a disease condition.
