Studies report that 60 percent of cancer patients have hope in unconventional remedies and 40 percent of patients take vitamin or dietary supplements. Many hospitals offer aromatherapy, massage, meditation, yoga and acupuncture due to patient request. While there may be differing opinions regarding the effectiveness of these treatments, hospitals have decided that these treatments offer little in the way of harm. (1)
Sixty percent of cancer patients utilize unconventional treatment remedies!
If you or someone you know is currently battling cancer and seeking natural cancer treatments, consider the following options.
Ten natural therapies that can help heal or reverse cancer
- The Gerson Therapy: Dr. Max Gerson utilized organic, plant based foods, raw juices, coffee enemas, beef liver and natural supplements to help hundreds of patients activate the body’s ability to heal itself. The Gerson diet is rich in vitamins, minerals, and enzymes and is low in fats, proteins, and sodium. Patients on this diet consume 13 glasses of fresh juice, eat three plant based meals, and only snack on fresh fruit each day. This treatment then utilizes five coffee enemas daily to help free the body of toxins. The combination of diet and detox mixed with Lugol’s solution, pancreatic enzymes, potassium compound, thyroid hormone and vitamin B12 have resulted in the body finding its natural ability to erradicate cancer.

- The Budwig Protocol: Dr. Johanna Budwig is one of the leading experts on fats and oils. During her research she found that conventional processed fats and hydrogenated oils destroyed cell membranes, resulting in diseased cells and toxicity. Dr. Budwig’s program replaces processed fats with unsaturated fatty aides that help the cells rebuild. She found that consuming a mixture of cottage cheese, flaxseeds and flax oil resulted in an increased capability for the body to absorb these vital nutrients. (2)
- Proteolytic Enzyme Therapy: John Beard recommended that pancreatic proteolytic enzymes were the body’s best cancer defense. It was discovered that a vegetarian diet suppresses sympathetic function. People with tumors in the lung, pancreas, colon, prostate, or uterus are recommended to eat a largely plant-based diet. Those with leukemia, myeloma, or lymphoma are recommended to consume an high-animal protein diet. In addition to these diets it is recommended to take 5 grams of proteolytic enzymes three times per day between meals.(2)
- Vitamin C Chelation: Chelation therapy relies on chemical and natural compounds to remove toxic metals. A 2005 study found that vitamin C chelation therapy was found to be highly pro-oxidant after one hour of treatment. The treatment provided “beneficial long-term antioxidant effects.” The effects of this treatment were found to be effective at destroying tumor cells. (2,3)
- Frankincense Essential Oil Therapy: Numerous clinical trials show that frankincense oil is beneficial for treating brain cancer, breast cancer, colon cancer, pancreatic cancer, prostate cancer, and stomach cancer! Researchers believe that frankincense oil influences your genes to promote healing. Simply, rub frankincense oil on your neck three times per day and drink 3 drops of oil in 8 ounces of water, three times per day. (2)
- Probiotics: Probiotics promote a natural balance in gut microflora. Raw milk products such as cheese, kefir and yogurt are good sources of natural probiotics. A 2007 study found that probiotic supplementation stopped the growth of tumors. Eighty percent of the body’s immune system is found in the gut. Probiotics help to improve digestion, mineral absorption and help heal leaky gut. (2,4)
- Vitamin D3: A 2007 study found that vitamin D is one of the best cancer treatments around. The study evaluated 1,200 postmenopausal women for four years, comparing the effectiveness of 1400-1500 mg of calcium to a calcium supplement plus 1,100 IU of vitamin D3 for cancer treatment. After one year, the vitamin D3 treatment decreased the risk of developing all types of cancer by 77 percent! (2)
- Turmeric and Curcumin: Laboratory studies on cancer cells have shown that curcumin does provide anticancer effects, showing the best results on breast, bowel, stomach and skin cancer. A 2007 study showed that the combined treatment of curcumin and chemotherapy killed more bowel cancer cells than chemotherapy alone. (2)
- Oxygen Therapy and Hyperbaric Chambers: The root cause of cancer is oxygen deficiency which creates an acidic environment in the body. Dr. Otto Warburg found that cancer cells do not breathe oxygen and cannot survive in the presence of high levels of oxygen that is present in an alkaline environment. Utilizing hyperbaric oxygen chambers can cause the blood to carry more oxygen to the organs and tissues in the body. While this is not mainstream, hospitals are beginning to purchase hyperbaric chambers to help their patients. (2)
- Immune Boosting Mushrooms: Mushrooms have been used in Chinese medicine for 4,000 years to help increase survival, shrink tumors, boost the immune system and reduce the effects of radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Consider utilize cordycep and reishi mushrooms for the best results.
One year of Vitamin D3 treatment reduced the risk of developing all types of cancer by 77 percent!
