THIS IS MY PERSONAL, RADICAL, CANCER-FIGHTING REGIMEN. FOR A MILDER VERSION IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN PREVENTION RATHER THAN THERAPY, CLICK THE "RESOURCES" LINK ABOVE.
My cancer is a very rare type called "gastrinoma," diagnosed in Feb. 2019, stage 4. I had a large, 9-cm tumor in the abdomen, and 35 smaller tumors in the liver, lymph nodes, and bones (vertebrae, ribs, pelvis, femurs). See "My Story" on the menu at the top of the page for the background of my cancer and how it went from "incurable" to healing through prayer and nutrition. This type of regimen is not only cancer-fighting, it's health-promoting in general, and could be effective against a wide variety of chronic diseases. My regimen is intense because it's aimed at healing an active case of cancer. But if a chronic disease is not your issue, a milder version could be used for prevention or general health.
This page describes my personal diet regimen. It's a radical lifestyle shift. It's designed to be an avalanche of nutrition and detoxification. I learned the basic natural-therapy concept from Chris Wark's book, "Chris Beat Cancer" (and website by the same name, www.chrisbeatcancer.com, which includes tons of resources, expert interviews, testimonials, etc.). The theory is that healing cancer involves the following elements: (1) overdose of plant-based nutrition (no animal products), particularly incorporating juicing because it's the only way to get a high enough volume of nutrients, (2) detoxification, (3) exercise/sunshine, and (4) mental/emotional/spiritual de-stressing; prayer and devotion to God are key. I immediately saw the soundness of the theory the first day reading that book; by the time I finished the book the next day I had already radically changed my lifestyle, and have never looked back or slacked off.
Another good resource is a book called "The China Study," by T. Colin Campbell, about the link between diet (particularly animal products) and cancer (see https://nutritionstudies.org/the-china-study).
I have customized my diet regimen as I've learned more over time, particularly by incorporating lots of herbal supplements and additives; the supplement portion of my regimen is admittedly over the top, I adopted a nuclear-bomb approach. The varieties and quantities of supplements are continually
evolving as I learn more, or according to availability and prices (I buy most supplements online).
Although my diet fits within the definition of "vegan," that is not a correct description of me. The word "vegan" was invented to distinguish from "vegetarian," because some vegetarians make various exceptions to a "vegetation" diet, to indeed eat animal products. Some of the exceptions are: dairy, eggs, and fish. In other words, by sloppy use, the word "vegetarian" has lost its meaning. Too bad. So the word "vegan" was invented to describe a diet free of all animal products. But the term "vegan" has its own problems: (1) There are many things that are not animal products, but are still very unhealthy. For example: refined sugar, refined grains, processed foods, oil, and chemicals. Therefore the term "vegan", which is intended to imply healthiness, is NOT synonymous with healthy. It might be, or it might be quite the opposite, it will vary from person to person based on their choices. (2) It is commonly associated with ideologies, even to the point of becoming an irrational religion. For example, anti-animal-cruelty, animal rights, environmentalism (including global-warmism), vigilante-ism, anti-capitalism, including radical versions of these things. There is room for a certain degree of rational agreement with the factual claims and practical goals of some of these ideologies, but the term does not distinguish the rational points from the ideology, so the term is typically very closely associated with these ideologies. For these reasons, the word "vegan" does not apply to me. What does apply to me is that I choose what is HEALTHY in general and THERAPEUTIC against my disease, without ANY ideological motivations; my only motivation is health, or more precisely, SURVIVAL. And what I consider healthy are whole, unprocessed plant foods, with no chemicals, and with only very few exceptions to these criteria.
The most important part of this regimen is the diet and juicing, which are consistent with every natural therapy regimen I’ve researched. The supplements and juice additives I’ve bundled into my regimen are my own ideas, based on my theory that if anything could help, I’ll try it. So if you’re interested in following this example and are overwhelmed by what you see, remember it’s the diet and juicing that are the most important things to focus on. If you prefer to keep it simple, I urge you to at least adopt the diet, and make juice consisting primarily of carrot juice, and that’s 90% of the battle. Again, my custom regimen is admittedly over the top.
If you're ready to embark on this therapy (why not?), my recommendation if you want to minimize overwhelm is to make the lifestyle shift in two phases. First, immediately adopt the basics: switch to a plant-based, whole foods diet, including juicing, and in addition to eliminating animal products, eliminate sugar, refined grains, synthetic chemicals, and processed foods. Second, systematically add more into the regimen, whatever you choose based on your individual needs or research. Again, the following list is my own custom creation, but its core follows the typical natural-therapy concept of plant-based nutrition and detoxification. If you're interested in a milder, or graduated approach to diet, see my "Health improvement chart" on my Resources page.
Note: Don't expect your oncologist (or medical doctors in general), or even family or friends, to be enthusiastic about your natural therapy, and don't be discouraged or deterred by that. Although there's a ton of scientific data supporting this type of therapy, it's not widely known or appreciated in
conventional medicine. The Titanic can't turn on a dime; it's going to take a few more generations for the medical momentum to shift. If your oncologist accepts the fact that you are in charge of your own health care, that's good enough.
My diet/detox regimen:
I don't eat:
Sugar (it's in everything, in numerous forms such as corn syrup, cane juice, dextrose, fructose, honey, etc.).
Any processed grain, particularly white flour (a.k.a. “enriched flour”* or "wheat flour", which is in everything); I eat whole grains only.
Chemicals, preservatives, etc. (that includes tap water; I use filtered/bottled water only; best filter is "Berkey", www.berkeyfilters.com).
Animal products, no meat, fish, eggs, dairy.
Added oils. Particularly processed oils like corn oil, canola oil, safflower oil (added oils are in everything; avoid processed foods). Because my regimen is extreme, I even avoid oil-rich foods like avocado, nuts/seeds, olives, coconut.
Caffeine (or alcohol or tobacco/nicotine); I avoid caffeinated coffee, but don’t mind naturally occurring caffeine in other things like tea.
I don't use chemical personal care products, such as soap, shampoo, shaving cream, toothpaste, lotion, deodorant, sunscreen, etc. I use only natural product types, with no synthetic chemical ingredients.
Plant-based, whole foods, including wide variety of vegetables and fruits, whole grains (oatmeal, brown rice, etc.), quinoa, legumes, spices, apple cider vinegar, etc. (see also www.chrisbeatcancer.com/top-10-anti-cancervegetables).
Homemade juice 32oz - 64oz per day, consisting of:
● 60-80% carrot juice;
● 10-30% variety of vegetable juices (especially celery);
● 10% variety of pureed fruit (pureed, not juiced, to retain natural fiber/sugar balance).
Additives/supplements: (This is admittedly over-the-top, for therapeutic reasons. For ordinary prevention, I'd recommend those marked with an *asterisk)
Aloe vera gel.
"Amazon Bloodroot Capsules" (https://www.herbhealers.com/amazon-bloodroot-capsules-100-vegetarian-capsules-x-300-mg-1.html).
"Amazon Tonic III" (https://www.herbhealers.com/amazon-tonic-iii-8oz-formerly-sold-as-cansema.html).
Amla fruit powder (most potent natural source of Vitamin C).
Amygdalin extract. (and/or apricot kernels).
Blackstrap molasses (it's extremely nutrient-rich).
Colloidal silver: Mesosilver by Purest Colloids. It's the only type that is non-ionic. Most brands are ionic silver, which is useless integrally because it binds with stomach acid and is neutralized. (https://www.purestcolloids.com/ionic.php).
*Essiac Tea (genuineessiac.com).
Horny Goat Weed.
Magnesium (as magnesium glycinate).
Manuka honey (10 UMF or KFactor 16 standard) (this is an exception to the vegan, no-sugar rules, because of its antimicrobial properties).
Matcha tea powder.
Moringa tea powder.
*Superfood powder (mixture of various brands).
*Vitamin C (mixture of ascorbic acid, sodium ascorbate, and liposomal C, for better absorption/bowel tolerance) (I don't use calcium ascorbate**).
Zinc (as zinc gluconate).
(*Supplements I recommend in all cases.)
(**Calcium supplementation is toxic, see link on Resources page.)
Periodic fasting, water only, 3-6 days at a time. Fasting triggers powerful detoxification and healing. I do this about once every few months. It gets easier the more you do it.
I've had all my metal dental fillings replaced with non-metal type, by a dentist specializing in procedures that prevent contamination in the process. Metal fillings contain toxic mercury that constantly leaches out into the body.
Other things I've done or used sporadically:
"Hoxsey" formula (https://www.pureformulas.com/hoxsey-formula-4-oz-by-professional-formulas.html).
Fenbendazole (https://thehappyhealingstore.com/product/fenben-pure/)(with DMSO to make it water soluble).
Magnetic pulse device (https://www.sota.com/default.aspx?page=Magnetic-Pulser).
* White flour, "wheat flour," "enriched flour" is a double-whammy. First, it has the germ and fiber are removed, turning it into the equivalent of sugar. But the these missing factors are extremely important, both for their nutrients and for gut health. Second, the "enrichment" required by the government is a crock, adding in a few supplemental nutrients after having removed thousands. And furthermore, one of those supplemental nutrients is iron, which you DO NOT NEED, and too much of it is very toxic. Iron is not depleted in your body, it is recycled as needed, so the only way to lose iron is to bleed. But if you have not been tested and found anemic, YOU DO NOT NEED EXTRA IRON. See Dr. Levy on iron (also on my Resources page):
