If you have been following my blogs, I have been discussing alternative practitioners of cancer therapy. My newest subject of investigation is the “grandfather” of most natural cancer therapies, Dr. Max Gerson. I will save my evaluation of his therapy for my next blog. For now, I thought it would be advantageous for you, my readers, to watch 3 youtube movies before you read my summary of his therapy. Think of it as “homework” before reading my lecture. The 3 movies are similar in many ways and do have some overlap, yet each addresses different topics related Dr. Gerson’s therapy. These movies will give you a good framework of understanding before reading my evaluation of his protocol. Give yourself about 1 1/2 hours for each movie.
If you have been following my blogs, I have spent several blogs discussing Dr. William Kelly, who in my opinion is the most prolific practitioner of cancer therapy of all time. That’s why I gave him the title “the Gretzky of alternative Cancer”, referring to Wayne Gretzky, now retired hockey great. Along similar lines, I now want to delve into the cancer therapy of “German Genius”, Dr. Johanna Budwig, whom I will classify as the “Wickenheiser of Alternative Cancer”.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with Woman’s International Hockey, Hayley Wickenheiser is a female Canadian hockey player, who is considered by many to be the greatest female hockey player in the world and probably all-time. In Canada, we are very proud of the performance of our men’s and women’s national ice hockey teams who both are reigning Olympic champions. Our woman’s team is captained by Hayley Wickenheiser, who has represented Canada at the Winter Olympics four times, capturing three gold and one silver medal and twice being named tournament MVP. In addition to this, she has also represented Canada in softball in the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, Australia. She is the only non-goalie female to ever play professional men’s hockey, as she played forEskilstuna Linden in Sweden 2008. Being female never stopped her from playing with the “big boys”. So to be consistent with my hockey analogy I consider Dr. Johanna Budwig to be the “Wickenheiser of Alternative Cancer”.
Who is Dr. Johanna Budwig?
Similar to Hayley Wickenheiser, Dr. Johanna Budwig never let her female gender get in the way of her playing with the “big boys” in the medical world. Dr. Budwig (1908-2003) was a German quantum physicist, chemist, and pharmacologist who was allegedly nominated 6 times as a finalist in Nobel Prize voting for her extensive work on oils and essential free fatty acids. She also received doctorates (PHD’s) in physics and chemistry. According to cancertutuor.com, “In Germany in 1952 she was the Central Government’s Senior Expert for fats and pharmaceutical drugs. She’s considered one of the worlds leading authorities on fats and oils.” This was Germany’s version of the FDA in America, and Dr. Budwig was their national expert. Dr. Lloyd Jenkins ND reports,
“After some 50 years of successfully helping over 2,400 people with cancer and other illnesses regain their health, she knew she was really on to something of monumental importance in the field of health.”
Her numbers may not equal Dr. Kelley’s, but as we shall soon see, her protocol in some way eclipses Dr. Kelley in her ability to revive to terminally sick. Cliff Beckwith, 10 year survivor of Stage IV advanced prostate cancer while using the Budwig diet, says of his research on Dr. Budwig,
“Dr. Budwig to my knowledge had over 1000 documented successes. However, her work was not popular with the Oncology Industry in Europe. Her ideas would have meant a lot of losses in the Food Industry [too]; especially in the fats industry.”
Dr. Budwig claimed a similar success rate to Dr. Kelley at over 90% of her patients. What is all the more impressive is that Dr. Budwig claims to have taken on patients so sick that they were within days or even hours from death, and was able to revive them and get them well. Here are some of her quotes in this regard,
“in fact 99% of the sick that come to see me to use the biological method of cancer therapy, are cancer patients who have had operations and radiation sessions, or who were diagnosed as being too far advanced for an operation to be of any help. Even in these cases health can be restored, usually within a few months, I would say in 90% of cases.”
“I often take very sick cancer patients away from hospital where they are said to have only a few days left to live, or perhaps only a few hours. This is mostly accompanied by very good results.”
What is also so amazing about Dr. Budwig’s protocol, is that it is a fairly simple and relatively inexpensive therapy. To me, one of the greatest signs of brilliance, is someone who can take highly complex information and be able to break it down simply, at even a child’s level. Scientists, doctors, and the intelligentsia who persist at talking in high medical language, really show a lack of intelligence if they are unable to break down their knowledge into laymen terms. Renound Quantum Physicist Max Planck said in this regard,
“When someone thinks he has discovered something new but he cannot as a scientist so express it that everybody understands, then he hasn’t discovered anything new at all”
This is what Dr. Budwig was able to do with the deep complexity surrounding the cause, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer. The signature aspect of Dr. Budwig’s therapy is the combining of 2 common everyday foods, cottage cheese and flax oil (CC/FO is the abbreviation). If you are thinking, come on Brent, you can’t possibly be saying that cancer can be cured simply by eating a simple mixture of flax oil and cottage cheese. This is not the only part of Dr. Budwig’s protocol, but yes, it is the main part. I don’t blame anyone for being skeptical initially, I know I was when I first read it. Most cancer researchers react the same way until they look at the deeper chemical process behind this food combination. Some completely reject the simplicity of CC/FO to cure disease. Dr. Budwig stated,
“Various highly trained and educated individuals are dismayed and irritated by the fact that serious medical conditions can be cured by cottage cheese and flaxseed oil.”
Dr. Dan C. Roehm M.D. FACP (oncologist & former cardiologist), in the 1990’s investigated Dr. Budwig’s protocol and here is what he concluded,
“I only wish that all my patients had a PhD in Biochemistry and Quantum Physics to enable them to see how with such consummate skill this diet was put together. It is a wonder.”
“This diet is far and away the most successful anti-cancer diet in the world”.
Former Research Director of the National Foundation for Alternative Medicine in Washington DC, Lothar Hirneise said this about the Budwig diet,
“Of all the nutritional theories that I have investigated, Dr. Johanna Budwig’s is definitely number one … Nowhere in the world have I found not even remotely such fantastic cases as with Dr. Budwig. It’s phenomenal.”
H. Wilhelm, one the leading authorities on the budwig diet today, sums up Dr. Budwig’s protocol quite succinctly,
“It is a scientifically well thought out, all natural approach to health, that has a tremendous rate of success and track record… and it costs next to nothing. I think that if it were very expensive and much money could be made on it, it would be much more popular because it would be pushed by business. But as it stands, it doesn’t lend itself to it.”
In fact, the main reason why Dr. Budwig’s protocol is not more widely known in the mainstream cancer world, is that she refused to sell the rights of her therapy for profit. She felt that cancer treatment should not be contaminated by corporate profit. Her fears have been proven correct as cancer now is about a billion dollar/day industry. Dr. Budwig stated,
“I have the answer to cancer, but American doctors won’t listen. They come here and observe my methods and are impressed. Then they want to make a special deal so they can take it home and make a lot of money. I won’t do it, so I’m blackballed in every country.”
What was Dr. Budwig’s understanding of the nature of cancer?
After studying thousands of blood samples from patients suffering from cancer and other chronic disease, she found that the blood of the diseased contained a strange yellowish-green substance (cytochrome) which was substituting the place of healthy, red, oxygen-carrying hemoglobin. The blood of the healthy was more of a bright red and did not contains this yellow-green substance. She then found that this substance was caused by a lack of Omega 3 fatty acids in the sick patients blood versus an adequate supply of Omega 3 fatty acids in the healthy.
Another name for Omega 3 fatty acids is essential fatty acids (EFA’s). One of the main reasons why they are essential is that they are critical at the cellular level. Dr. Kelley looked at how enzymes could break down the thick fibrin layer of the cancer cell membrane so that it could be properly destroyed by the immune system. Dr. Budwig focused on what actually caused the formation of the cancer cell in the first place. Dr. Burzynski has studied how the genes (oncogenes) convert regular cells into cancer cells, but Dr. Budwig focused on how a defective cell membrane results in the creation of cancer cells. As you can see, cancer can be attacked at many different levels, and each of these alternative cancer doctors are solving the “cancer puzzle” piece by piece. Hopefully, one day we will be able to combine them all in a synergistic way and finally put this cancer “devil” in the history books.
As we all know, our body runs electrically and we are dependent on this free flow of energy to survive. Our heart pumps 24 hours a day using this energy, our brain functions electrically on this energy, and Dr. Budwig discovered that our cells also depend on this energy. A typical cell, like an atom, has a positively charged centre (nucleus) and a negatively charged thin outer layer (membrane). Dr. Budwig found that the critical protection for healthy cells is maintaining the negatively charged field of electrons in the outer membrane. When this charge is not properly maintained, cell division is disrupted and the future daughter cells become sick and diseased, thus producing cancer cells. To maintain this field of electrons in the outer membrane, our cells need Omega 3 fatty acids (EFA’s) which are electron rich substances. The EFA’s provide this charge because they come from foods which are exposed to light energy from the sun. The sun gives the EFA’s these negatively charged electrons, and when we eat EFA’s, our cells remain healthy by maintaining a negatively charged membrane. When the membrane is charged properly, oxygen can flow freely into the cell, but when the charge is disrupted oxygen has a difficult time getting into the cell.
The health of our cells is actually a tale of 2 types of fats (oils). When we injest good electron rich fats our cells maintain their charge, but when we injest bad fats our cells lose their electron charge. Dr. Budwig wrote in her book “Flax Oil as a true aid against arthritis, Heart infarction, cancer, and other diseases”,
“This is the crux of the matter. Are all fats the same? Why had fat become so pressingly important at that time? How is it that fats can both cause tumours to form and also to dissolve?….. on the one hand the industrial solidification of fats and, on the other, the enormous importance of natural, electron rich, vital, highly unsaturated fats”
We need the good oils which are highly unsaturated fats (EFA’s), and we must avoid the “industrial” bad oils (hydrogenated oils, trans fats). The problem occurs when eat bad oils and fats (ie. trans fats, hydrogenated oils) and they act as free-radicals which disrupt and override the good fats and oils (EFA’s) bonding to the cell membrane. This essentially clogs the oxygen flow into the cells, and they start to suffocate. Dr. Otto Warburg, in 1931 discovered that the root cause of all cancer cells is oxygen deprivation. He received the Nobel Prize for this discovery of cellular respiration. Dr. Warburg wrote,
“…the cause of cancer is no longer a mystery, we know it occurs whenever any cell is denied 60% of its oxygen requirements. Cancer, above all other diseases, has countless secondary causes. But, even for cancer, there is only one prime cause.”
The North American diet is excessively too high in these bad oils and fats and very deficient in the good fats. The process of hydrogenation, is what is at the core of this problem. Most oils bought in the supermarket have been hydrogenated to increase the shelf life of the canola oils, vegetable oils, margarines, etc… . Hydrogenation is a chemical process which uses high heat to break bonds for hydrogen atoms to bond to. So then, healthy unsaturated fats & oils are converted into unhealthy saturated fats (trans fats). Unsaturated fats have weaker bonds and break down and go rancid when exposed to heat, light, and air. Saturated fats have much stronger bonds and this keeps the oils stable on the shelfs of supermarkets longer.
So, through hydrogenation, the once healthy unsaturated fats now become poisonous trans fats, all for the sake of shelf life!! Nice trade-off!! In fact, much of the food we eat has been modified in various ways for shelf life. There are very few oils that are strong enough to remain healthy when used for cooking and baking oil (ie. grapeseed oil, coconut oil, sesame oil, camelina oil), our problem is that most of the baking and cooking oils we use are hydrogenated (ie. vegetable oil, canola oil, margarines). Our french fries, fried chicken, cakes, pies, donuts, cookies, peanut butter etc… are most of the time cooked in hydrogenated oils. You can see why we have a cancer problem in North America.
These oils lose their electron charge during the hydrogenation process and when they start to bond to the cell membranes, they act like free-radicals and steal away electron charge instead of providing charge to the cell membrane. When enough of this charge of electrons is taken away and not provided by new electron rich EFA’s, the cell short circuits and the battery in the cell become “dead” like a car battery. It is like a car battery losing it negative electrode. Without both a positive and a negative electrode, a car battery cannot flow electricity. If the cell membrane loses its negative electron charge, the cell in a sense loses its negative electrode and the cell charge is “dead”. When this happens our cells become oxygen deprived, they start to suffocate, then the cells do not divide properly, the daughter cells become sick, then cancer cells develop and eventually become tumors. Dr. Budwig puts it like this,
“The formation of tumors usually happens as follows. In those body areas which normally host many growth processes, such as in the skin and membranes, the glandular organs, for example, the liver and pancreas or the glands in the stomach and intestinal tract—it is here that the growth processes are brought to a stand still. Because the dipolarity is missing, due to the lack of electron rich highly unsaturated fat, the course of growth is disturbed—the surface-active fats are not present; the substance becomes inactive before the maturing and shedding process of the cells ever takes place, which results in the formation of tumors.”
How do we restart the battery in the cells?
In Dr. Budwig’s book “Cancer – The Problem and the Solution” she refers to a physicist named Kenneth Ford who in 1966 found that plants absorb solar energy from the sun and this energy is stored in the electrons of the seed oils from these plants. So, it is the seed oils which carry these photons from the sun which provide our bodies this energy when we eat them. Dr. Budwig states,
“And this absorption of solar energy in seeds is already adjusted in the green leaf to certain very specific wavelengths; science refers to this via the quantosomes.”
According to Dr. Budwig, the solution to restarting the cell is two-fold, get the bad out and get the good in. Intake of hydrogenated oils or oils heated above their stability point must be eliminated from our diets. At same time, oils that contain electron rich EFA’s and more specifically, Omega 3 fatty acids, must be taken into our bodies by our diet or transdermally by applying these oils to our skin. Once the bad oils have been eliminated from our bodies, the cell membranes no longer get clogged up with electron deficient oils. When taking in the good oils, the electron charge is re-established in the cell membrane which results in a proper balance of charge (dipolarity) in the cell. Cell then have adequate energy to perform proper functioning and healthy cell division takes place. No more cancer cells are made because the cells receive adequate oxygen, and the existing cancer cells & tumors fade away. The body has been recharged like a lithium battery.
How do we get Omega 3’s to our cell membranes?
Flax Oil vs. Fish Oil vs. Camelina Oil
This is where the flaxseed oil comes into play. Flax oil is considered to be the richest source oil for Omega 3’s in the world today (up to 57% of its content is Omega 3). There is some debate on this issue as fish oils are also very good sources of Omega 3’s (ie. salmon, cod liver, sardines, krill). Cod liver oil has long been used as a health oil due to its high concentration of Omega 3’s as well as its decent levels of Vitamin A & D. Though fish oils are very good sources of Omega 3’s and other vitamins, in our changing world of pollution, there are concerns about mercury, PCB, lead, and cadmium contamination. These poisonous substances have been found in fish, and show up in larger quantities in larger fish. There is also concern that modern fish farming of salmon has been shown to greatly decrease the Omega 3 level in the salmon tissue. Wild Salmon contain good levels of Omega 3 due to their natural diet in the wild. Fish oils have definitely been shown to be an excellent source of Omega 3’s, but vigilance must be done to ensure a lack of contamination.
Dr. Budwig’s protocol centres around the use of field grown flaxseed oil, but before one follows her regimen, one should understand that flax oil has its strengths and its weaknesses. Due to its extremely high level of Omega 3’s it is very powerful, but flax oil is also very fragile. Flax oil is very easily oxidized and must be refrigerated continually, stored in a dark bottle, and not be heated. When stored at room temperature, the shelf life of flax oil is only about 3 weeks, whereas when it is refrigerated it lasts about 4 months. Its smoke point is a very low 225 degrees F, so it is not a cooking oil. When oxidized, flax oil acts like hydrogenated oils by producing the opposite effect that Dr. Budwig intended, by acting like a free-radical causing damage to our cells rather than energizing them.
In my research on flax oil, I came across another oil called Camelina oil, which is sometimes referred to as “wild flax”. It is very similar to flax in Omega 3 content (up to 45%), yet it eclipses flax oil in several ways. First, Camelina contains many anti-oxidants which help combat free-radicals in the body. Second, it is much more stable than flax oil, so it resists oxidation and maintains a long shelf life. This makes Camelina safer in many respects, because there is less concern of rancidity. Third, Camelina oil can be used for cooking as its “smoke point” is much higher at about 475 degrees F, which gives additional options for Omega 3 intake. Lastly, many consider Camelina to be a much nicer tasting oil than flax or fish oil, as it has an almond-like taste and aroma.
Dr. Budwig’s focuses on the use of flax oil, so I would be cautious about substituting Camelina oil in its place though it does makes sense in many ways. If one is finding it difficult to find a retailer that sells refrigerated flax oil, it may make sense to use Camelina. Flax still contains the higher percentage of Omega 3’s, but to me it would make sense to use Camelina at the same time. One must use their own common sense here.
Why mix cottage cheese with flax oil?
Getting the electron rich Omega 3’s from flax oil to our cell membrane requires the right kind of delivery system. Flax oil, on its own, is not soluble in water and therefore not soluble in the blood. Oil and water, simply don’t mix, so to make flax oil soluble in the blood and accessible to the cell membrane, it needs a change in chemical composition. Dr. Budwig found that when flax oil is mixed and bonded to a sulphur-containing protein like cottage cheese or quark (german cottage cheese), this combination then becomes water-soluble and can be carried in the blood and easily absorbed into our cell membranes. According to the Cancer Cure Foundation website,
“Lipids are only water-soluble and free-flowing when bound to protein; thus the importance of protein-rich cottage cheese. When high quality, electron-rich fats are combined with proteins, the electrons are protected until the body requires energy. This energy source is then fully and immediately available to the body on demand, as nature intended”
So as you can see, mixing cottage cheese with flax oil is not some fanciful concoction from a dairy farmer’s bad dream. It is actually designed by Dr. Budwig from many years of scientific study at a cellular level. The cottage cheese acts like a delivery truck for the flax oil. Without the cottage cheese, when one injests flax oil it must go through the digestive system and is not as easily absorbed into the cells. Flax oil on its own does have many health benefits such as constipation relief, heart disease prevention, and cholesterol reduction, but it doesn’t have Dr. Budwig’s cellular energy support without cottage cheese.
When mixing the flax oil with the cottage cheese, Dr. Budwig recommended a ratio of 2 parts cottage cheese per 1 part of flax oil. Ideally, one should work up to taking 3 tablespoons of flax oil mixed with 6 tablespoons of cottage cheese and take this twice daily (morning & evening). The Budwig Centre in Spain gives these instructions on their website on how to properly make this mixture,
To make the Budwig Muesli, blend 3 Tablespoons (British dessert spoons) of flaxseed oil (FO) with 6 Tbps low-fat(less than 2%) Quark or Cottage Cheese (CC) with a hand-held immersion electric blender for up to a minute If the mixture is too thick and/or the oil does not disappear you may need to add 2 or 3 Tablespoons of milk (goat milk would be the best option). Do not add water or juices when blending FO with CC or quark. The mixture should be like rich whipped cream with no separated oil. Remember you must mix ONLY the FO and CC and nothing else at first. Always use organic food products when possible.
Now once the FO and CC are well mixed grind 2 Tbps of whole flaxseeds and add to the mixture. Please note that freshly ground flax seeds must be used within 20 minutes after being ground or they will become rancid. Therefore do not grind up flaxseeds ahead of time and store.
Next mix in by hand or with the blender 1 teaspoon of honey (raw non-pasteurized is recommended)
(Optional) For variety you may add other ingredients such as sugar free apple sauce, cinnamon, vanilla, lemon juice, chopped almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts, cashews (no peanuts), pine kernels, rosehip-marrow. For people who find the Budwig Muesli hard to take these added foods will make the mixture more palatable. Some of our patients have even added a pinch of Celtic sea salt and others put in a pinch of cayenne pepper for a change
Sandra Olson has provided a video on youtube which gives a good demonstration on how to properly prepare the FO/CC mixture. Click on this link www.youtube.com/watch?v=RSoddptWL0s
The Importance of Sunshine
Getting an adequate amount of sunshine is a critical part of Dr. Budwig’s protocol. Once the body has acquired the right oil-protein balance with the cottage cheese and flax oil, the body develops better absorption power to access the healing powers of the sun. Yes, sun-bathing has been a bit of a taboo activity in recent years because it has been connected to possible development of skin cancer. This is true if one is continually getting sunburns and generally over-doing their time in the sun, but many do not realize that getting a proper amount of sun is essential to our health in many ways.
Most know that sunshine is important to maintain adequate vitamin D levels in our body. Vitamin D is a powerful antioxidant that has been linked to preventing many diseases including cancer. Deborah Kotz from the US News writes,
“If you’re fair skinned, experts say going outside for 10 minutes in the midday sun—in shorts and a tank top with no sunscreen—will give you enough radiation to produce about 10,000 international units of the vitamin…..the sunshine vitamin may protect against a host of diseases, including osteoporosis, heart disease, and cancers of the breast, prostate, and colon. What’s more, sunlight has other hidden benefits—like protecting against depression, insomnia, and an overactive immune system.”
It is estimated that about 90% of the Vitamin D we receive comes from sun exposure, though those that live in northern climates (ie. Canada) during the winter time do not get adequate sun exposure. This explains why us northerners tend to get more flu, colds, and other sicknesses during the winter. A study by the Department of Cancer Biology in North Carolina found,
“Believe it or not, prostate cancer rates increase as you move from southern latitudes to northern latitudes. In other words, you are at greater risk the further north you live. Scientists have linked ultraviolet light and vitamin D to a reduced risk of prostate cancer.”
It is quite clear that us northerners need additional vitamin D in the winter time and maybe even half of the year. Taking vacations or extended time in the southern hemisphere (ie. Florida, Caribbean) is not only good for stress relief, but also ideal way to keep your Vitamin D levels up. Not to mention the additional benefits of magnesium & iodine when taking a dip in the ocean. According to the Vitamin D Society other ways to increase your Vitamin D are,
UVB Exposure Natural Sunlight – 10,000 – 20,000 IU per day, in summer, 10am – 2pm Tanning Bed with UVB – 10,000 IU per session
Food Salmon – fresh, wild, 3.5 oz – 400 – 1000 IU Salmon – farmed, 3.5 oz – 100 – 250 IU Fortified Milk – 8 oz – 100 IU
Supplements Vitamin D3 – from 400 – 1,000 IU in tablets or liquid
Dr. Michael Holick Ph.D, MD gives this summary of the health benefits and disease incidence prevention
that could be achieved by raising the public’s vitamin D levels to 125 nmol/L:
Rickets, reduced by 100%
Osteomalacia, reduced by 100%
Cancers, all combined, reduced by 75%
Breast Cancer, reduced by 50%
Ovarian Cancer, reduced by 25%
Colon Cancer, reduced by 67%
Non-Hodgkins, reduced by 30%
Kidney Cancer, reduced by 67%
Endometrial Cancer, reduced by 35%
Type 1 Diabetes, reduced by 80%
Type 2 Diabetes, reduced by 50%
Fractures, all combined, reduced by 50%
Falls, women reduced by 72%
Multiple Sclerosis, reduced by 50%
Heart Attack, men, reduced by 50%
Peripheral Vascular Disease, reduced by 80%
preeclampsia reduced by 50%
Cesarean Section, reduced by 75%
For Dr. Budwig sunlight has a different importance
Well you can see I am quite the pusher of Vitamin D, but in actuality when Dr. Budwig discusses the importance of sunbeams, she does not mention Vitamin D. Her focus was on the importance of photons from the sunbeams and their interaction with vital activities in our body. It is the interaction of photons from the sun and the electrons in proper food that provide the synergistic effect on healing our body. Eating the electron rich flax oil/cottage cheese mixture, must be connected with adequate exposure to sunlight. According to Mike Vrentas from cancertutor.com, Dr. Budwig felt the importance of photons was because they are the purest form of energy, the purest wave, and in continual movement. Dr. Budwig stated,
“electrons are already a constituent of matter, even though they are also in continual movement and that electrons love photons, attracting each other due to their magnetic fields. There is nothing else on earth with a higher concentration of photons of the sun’s energy than man. This concentration of the sun’s energy—very much an iso-energetic point for humans, with their eminently suitable wave lengths—is improved when we eat food which has electrons which in turn attract the electro-magnetic waves of sun beams, of photons”
When you eat the FO/CC mixture, your body becomes a better antennae for the photons from the sun. Your body develops a better ability to absorb the energy from the sun and transfer it to your cells to perform their vital functions. You become energized at a deep level, and when this happens diseases fade away. This is why the Budwig protocol not only has success with cancer, but also Arthritis, Heart Infarction, Irregular Heart Beat, Psoriasis, Eczema (other skin diseases), Immune Deficiency Syndromes (Multiple Sclerosis and other Auto Immune Diseases), Diabetes, Lungs (respiratory conditions), Stomach Ulcers, Liver, Prostate, Strokes, Brain Tumors, Brain (strengthens activity), Arteriosclerosis and other chronic diseases.(from Cancertutor.com)
Become a Super hero
I am reminded of the scene in the most recent Superman movie, when Superman was greatly weakened by the Kryptonite island that he chucked out into space, but after he was separated from the kryptonite and he was falling back to earth, the sunlight re-energized him and he became the powerful superman again. For us hydrogenated oils and trans fats are our kryptonite, and our energy source is the combination of Omega 3 fatty acids from our food (FO/CC) which provide electrons to our cell membranes and their interaction with the photons from the sun. When we completely avoid the bad oils and fats (oils actually are fat) and pump in the good oils and fats with adequate sun exposure, we are turned into photon-electron charged “supermen or superwomen” ready to fight the evil diseases whenever they show their nasty heads.
Mike Vrentas also commented on what Dr. Budwig found with her patients,
“Dr Budwig found when she treated patients and had them lie in the sun she noticed they started feeling much better and became rejuvenated. She referred to the sun as having a stimulating effect on the secretions of the liver, gall bladder, pancreas, bladder and salivary glands. Dr Budwig also stated “Matter always has its own vibration, and so, of course, does the living body. The absorption of energy must correspond to one’s own wave length.” It appears apparently that sunlight is absolutely essential for the stimulation effect of the vital functions of the mind and body, contributing to the factors which allow the body to heal itself.”
The Budwig protocol is widely practiced around the world in alternative circles and here is a testimony from Jack Phelan when he began using the FO/CC mixture with sunlight,
“We all felt an increased feeling of general well-being, a feeling of lightness, more energy, better circulation and, when in the sun, I felt the healing power of the sun affecting my skin much differently than before. Also, every week or two, I become aware of feeling better in different ways. Old aches go away, my skin improves and I am able to do things better. One woman felt so good about it that she gave it to her children and said that right away she could see improvements in their skin tone. As she spoke, I saw that her own skin had more color and was radiant. And this was only about two days after she started taking the oil-protein combination.”
What else is there to the Budwig protocol?
It should be clear by now that Dr. Budwig’s main focus was finding a way to get Omega 3 fatty acids into the body to support the electron charge in the cell membrane. Eating the FO/CC mixture was her main focus, but she also used other means to increase Omega 3 absorption in the body. Dr. Budwig recommended transdermal (skin application) of a specific oil mixture called ELDI oil (Electron Differentiation Oils). Mike Vrentas has found that this ELDI oil is something like a 60% flax oil, 40% wheat germ oil mixture. The exact percentage mixture is actually unknown now, but it is somewhere in this neighbourhood. The same ELDI oil that Dr. Budwig used can only be purchased from Germany from Wolfgang Bloching at Wolfgang.Bloching@t-online.de . These transdermal approaches are to be done in conjunction with the FO/CC diet.
Dr. Budwig used this ELDI oil in 3 different ways to increase Omege 3 absorption in the body. 1
1) Full body oil massage & hot shower
2) Oil packs for specific areas of application
3) Enema oil application
Full Body ELDI oil massage
Transdermal therapy (skin application) is actually a widely used practice used to delivery medication to the body. There are many advantages to administering a medicine transdermally versus orally (by mouth) or intravenously (needle in vein).
1) Transdermal application avoids the stomach acids and digestive enzymes in the stomach and the liver, thus increasing the percentage of medicine that actually makes it to the bloodstream.
2) The large surface area of pores in the skin allows for rapid absorption into the body. When heated (ie. hot shower) our skin pores open wider which allows greater absorption.
3) The skin acts as a protective buffer which allows the medicine to be absorbed gradually and as the body needs. So in a sense it is almost impossible to overdose of any medicine when applied transdermally
Dr. Mark Sircus OMD, promotes transdermal magnesium therapy in the prevention of many diseases. Here is his view on transdermal therapy,
“In fact it is one of the best ways of administering medicines quickly and effectively. Transdermal methods of delivery are widely used because they allow the absorption of medicine directly through the skin….It is not a surprise, when you consider the large surface area of the skin, that when you apply a substance to the entire body, rapid absorption and resultant effect is sufficient to put transdermal administration on par with other ways of administering drugs.”Learn more: http://www.naturalnews.com/024142_skin_medicine_magnesium.html#ixzz1ypHFp8X0
When one receives a full body massage with the ELDI oil, the Omega 3’s are absorbed into the bloodstream. Having a full body massage decreases tension and stress as well, which is important when fighting any disease. This type of treatment beats the heck out of chemo, radiation, or surgery!! Oil massage is a quite enjoyable way to fight disease.
To increase absorption of the ELDI oil, after full body application Dr. Budwig advised a warm shower for 15-20 mins without soap. The warm water opens up the pores on the skin wider and this increases absorption of the ELDI oil. Once this has been done, another shower can be taken with soap to wash off the oil so that it doesn’t get on your clothes. If this is not a concern, then just leave it on without soap. Dr. Budwig recommended this full body application be done 2 times/day (morning & evening).
ELDI Oil Packs
Packs or what is commonly known today as Patches are used to apply medicine to a specific areas of need transdermally. Some may have heard of the nicotine patch to help smokers or Suzanne Somers’ promotion of Glutathione patches which deliver this powerful antioxidant to the bloodstream to battle cancer. Actress, Suzanne Somers has actually done extensive research in the area of alternative cancer research. When reading her books it becomes evident that she is not the dumb blonde she portrayed in her acting career. Her recent book “Knockout” is quite informative.
Dr. Budwig would use oil packs to focus absorption of Omega 3’s in a specific area of concern (ie. tumor, a diseased organ, arthritis at a joint). It would only be used for a local problem, not metastasis. Here is how she would apply the oil pack (from Healingcancernaturally.com)
“Take a piece of cloth made of pure cotton. Cut to size to fit the body part, such as the knee. Soak the cotton, place on the knee etc., cover the cotton with a plastic sheet and wrap it up with an elastic bandage. Leave on overnight. Remove in the morning and wash the knee; repeat in the evening. Keep reapplying the same procedure for weeks. You can also use Eldi Oil R for these local applications. The oil pack is only suitable for local problems (no metastases).”
ELDI Oil Enemas
If you have been reading my blogs on Dr. Kelly, you would have read my lengthy discussion on coffee enemas. Before researching alternative cancer practitioners, I knew little about enemas or why they are used. I have found enemas to be a very common practice because the rectal area gives very direct absorption of medicine to the body. You may notice that all these transdermal methods all avoid the digestive system. Dr. Budwig used enemas to absorb her ELDI oil into the body when someone was so sick that they could not eat the FO/CC. She would use this on patients with little time to live. Here are some instructions healingcancernaturally.com on how to properly do an ELDI oil enema,
“Heat ……….ccm Eldi Oil R in a bain-marie. Inject the lukewarm Eldi Oil via irrigator, enema syringe etc. Use long rubber tip if preferred. If possible, have patient positioned with knees and elbows on the floor and buttocks slightly raised. When all the oil has been absorbed, have the patient first lie on their right side for c. 15 minutes and then on their left for another 15 minutes“
Dr. Budwig did not give exact details on how she did these enemas, but there are many resources on the internet which explain how to do a proper enema.
Other Considerations with Dr. Budwig’s Protocol
Dr. Budwig used other variables that are fairly common with any alternative cancer practitioner, and similar to Dr. Kelley.
1) Eating healthy food as “God intended”. According to Cancertutor.com “DR BUDWIG STRESSED THAT IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO AVOID UNHEALTHY FOODS & SUBSTANCES such as hydrogenated fats, animal fats, sugar, white flour, preservatives, chemicals and processed foods. Avoid leftovers – food should be prepared fresh and eaten soon after preparation to get the health-giving electrons & enzymes-within 15-20 minutes.”
2) Moderate exercise was advisable but don’t overdo it as your body needs to heal. This helps keep the circulation and lymph system going and transporting those necessary Omega 3’s in the blood.
3) At least 3x a day drink a warm liquid, such as green or herbal teas, sweeten only with raw honey.
4) Take care of your emotional state as we are psycho-somatic beings. Avoid stress and anxiety; take time to relax & enjoy each day. Listen to beautiful music, laugh, do deep breathing, connect with nature, and spend time with people you like. Dr Budwig spoke about the damaging effects of stress.
6) Dr. Budwig was completely against conventional methods of chemotherapy and radiation. She viewed them at “obsolete”. Here are some of her quotes in this regard,
“The representatives of chemotherapy pose another problem. Our chemotherapy is aimed at destruction of the tumor, and it is recognized that chemotherapies destroy many living cells, and the entire person. Anything that disturbs growth is fatal because growth, as elementary life function, is part of the life process of man. We cannot achieve something good with bad tools.”
“I totally reject radiation and chemo; I also reject hormonal treatment for abdominal cancer. However, operations must be considered very individually. This also applies for tumors in the intestine. I am not a proponent of quickly creating an artificial anus.”
“The promotion provided by electrons built up by the sun and stored in seed oils is important in overcoming the blockages in the tumor, which the obsolete scientists incorrectly fight with growth-inhibiting medications. The growth-inhibiting medications we currently use as chemotherapies are wrong. The energy produced by the X-ray devices is also wrong, because it has a growth-inhibiting effect.”
“The radiations used in official allopathic medicine with synthetically produced radioisotopes works against this life process. It breaks down existing energy depots, destroys the gentle substance of the magnetic fields (spin of the electrons) which are indespensible for the energy transport in human beings.”
Concluding Thoughts on the Budwig Protocol
Dr. Johanna Budwig was truly a German Genius. She was able to compile research from other great scientists (ie. Otto Warburg) to develop an understanding of cancer and chronic disease at a cellular level. Not only that, she was able to develop a simple inexpensive regimen to deliver those all important Omega 3 fatty acids directly to the cells with her flaxseed oil/cottage cheese mixture. She was a tough woman who could humble any scientist or doctor with her wide knowledge of chemistry and quantum physics and their practical relation to chronic disease. Not only did she heal 1000’s of people from cancer and other chronic diseases, her protocol is now practiced around the world, just not in our conventional medical system.
Clearly, the Budwig protocol needs to be tested in official clinical trials, but if you have been following my blogs, the odds are stacked against this. Not only did Dr. Budwig have little use for the Big 3 conventional cancer treatments, her world-renown work on oils has proven there is a real problem in the hydrogenated oil business, processed food industry, and pharmaceutical industry. These are all multi-billion dollar industries that want to keep it that way, so the Budwig protocol is a real threat to them. Dr. Budwig refused to sell out to corporate profit and that is probably why her regimen has remained in the alternative cancer underground. Only time will tell whether our “obsolete” conventional cancer methods will be replaced or at least optioned out by Dr. Budwig powerful cancer protocol.
Why don’t we conclude on a positive note with some testimonials from Healingcancernaturally.com,
Sun Nov 30, 2003 I [know] a man in Canada who was a direct patient of Dr. Budwig. His condition was advanced with a tumor in his head called adenoma. His vision was already affected so that he could not recognize the color red anymore.
He went to Germany to see Dr. Budwig in October 1997, came back to Canada and began his treatment. He followed her regimen exactly. Two weeks later he began feeling better. Three weeks later his vision began to improve. A few months later he had the feeling that the tumor was gone. Sometime after that it was confirmed by an independent medical examination. He is well and active and runs his own business. He is still following the Budwig regimen except not quite as strict as before.
The beauty of Dr. Budwig’s protocol is that it is effective against a wide variety of cancers, perhaps all of them – even leukemia. I have not heard of any exclusions.
Hello Mr. Beckwith: I gave a copy of your testimony to a lady who had one breast removed and was given a grim diagnosis that the cancer had spread and that within a year she would likely be back to remove the other one. She had received all the chemo and radiation she could take. The surgeon basically sent her home because there was nothing else they could do. She told me that she had no energy and that she had to give up all her activities. She believed that there was no hope and that it was just a matter of time.
She started the flax oil. For the first few days she felt more tired than ever. The fourth day she began to feel a surge of energy. She continued to feel stronger and stronger. Within a couple of weeks she felt so good that she re-joined all the clubs and activities that she had to abandon before. She went on a trip to Eastern Canada that involved a lot of walking and said that she had no problems at all.
Two weeks ago she had an appointment with the surgeon and found that the other breast was fine and that she had no sign of problems. He told her to come back in a year for another check-up.
She phoned me yesterday to thank me again for the info that gave her life back. According to her, she was already taking vitamin supplements and good eating habits but it was the flax oil that made this miraculous difference. She said that she would continue to take the 5 tablespoons of flax oil in yogurt.
About six years ago a good friend of mine was found to have prostate cancer with a PSA of 10. He was scared to death and had an RP [radical prostatectomy]. The count was 0.0 and he was happy. A few months later it began to rise and again reached 10. He began to use flaxseed oil and cottage cheese at one tablespoon per day. The count went to 13. We talked about it together and he went to three tablespoons per day and the PSA began to drop. The last time I saw him a few months back he told me he had just had a PSA and the count was 0.0. He weighs about 220. In April 2000 he will be eighty.
I have endometrial adenocarcinoma stage IV now metastatic to lungs. My many tumors between the lungs have not grown since starting on the [nearly entire] Johanna Budwig protocol 8 months ago. I discontinued chemo last fall (my decision) as I knew I would not survive another treatment. Radiation and surgery are not options, per the doctors. Now my doctors say, “there is no medical explanation for why you are here”. I feel and look great! If [someone] has been given a dismal diagnosis, he/she has nothing to lose by trying the Budwig Protocol
As true, blue Canadian, one of the most important questions I often ask is, “Who is the greatest hockey player of all-time?” Some say Wayne Gretzky, others say Mario Lemieux, and others like Don Cherry say Bobby Orr. I, myself waiver on the issue, but from a statistical standpoint, the clear champ is Gretzky. He holds all the major records, including most goals/season 92, most assists/season 163, and most points/season 215. Some say these will never be broken, and I am inclined to agree.
In my research on alternative cancer practitioners, I continually run into a guy named Dr. William Kelley. Anyone who has had success in fighting cancer usually refers to him and usually adopts some level of his cancer protocol. At the same time, many parts of Kelley’s cancer protocol are a bit “alternative” even in the alternative world. Kelley’s theories and methods went against conventional cancer protocols and were in some ways different to mainstream alternative cancer protocols. Dr. Kelley’s protegé, Dr. Gonzalez, said in a youtube video that Dr. Kelley was “beyond brilliant” and that is why his methods were so outside the box of conventional and alternative cancer protocols. He said that the protocol Dr. Kelley created virtually on his own would have taken a team of regular doctors a century to develop. As in hockey, stats (as long as they are accurate), separate the “men from the boys”. I found Dr. Kelley’s stats to be quite astonishing and almost unbelievable. To date, I have not found anyone statistically comparable to his success with cancer patients. This is why I consider Dr. William Kelley to be the “Gretzky of alternative cancer treatment”. Dr. Kelley’s protocol is quite elaborate and multi-faceted. I will do my best to summarize it here, but if you really want to understand his protocol you should do your own research, as I cannot fully do it justice. Just to warn you, this will be one of my longer blogs, so get comfortable, grab a mug of tea, and we’ll learn about Dr. Kelley.
***As a disclaimer this blog is a commentary of the cancer protocol of Dr. Kelley, and not meant to be medical advice outside the advice of your health professional.
Who is Dr. William Kelley?
Dr. Kelley was certified othodontist who held a Masters of Science (M.S) and Doctorate of Dental Surgery (D.D.S) from Baylor University in Dallas. You might think, ok Brent, you’re saying Dr. Kelley is the “Gretzky of alternative cancer”, and he doesn’t have any certification in oncology. This clearly was an impediment to Dr. Kelley gaining acceptance in the medical world, but Dr. Kelley himself felt this actually gave him an advantage in that when he first investigated cancer therapy, he was not already indoctrinated or bound by conventional oncology’s do’s and don’t’s. He approached cancer research unbound and this allowed him to look “outside the box”. His treatments were made popular by his patient and actor Steve McQueen (who had a controversial death). Steve McQueen told Dr. Kelley “I’m going to blow the lid off this Cancer Racket.” Dr. Kelley said that after the surgery of removing Steve McQueen’s dead tumor (inactive from Dr. Kelley’s treatment), during the night, “a government agent came into his room posing as a Physician on duty and injected McQueen with a blood clotting medication, which was the cause of death.” Some think this is just conspiracy theory, but Dr. Kelley didn’t seem to have any doubts about it.
Dr. Kelley had a thriving othodontist practice, house, wife, and 4 children in the Dallas area and really had little involvement with cancer. Instead cancer decided to come knocking on his door. He was working 12-14 hour days and “With little time to eat he practically lived on candy bars and similar junk food”. In 1964, he was diagnosed with advanced pancreatic cancer (the same as Apple CEO Steve Jobs), which had metastasized to his lungs, liver and hip. His surgeon told him that he had only 4-8 weeks to live and therefore no surgery or treatment was prescribed. He was going to be another statistic.
When you are given news like this you couldn’t blame Dr. Kelley for having feelings of despondency to just give up. Fortunately, William had a strong mother who came to his aid. She threw out all his junk food and put him on a strict health food diet. He improved to the point that he was able to go back to work. This improvement subsided after about 6 months when he developed digestion problems. This pushed him to look deeper, so he began to study alternative cancer researchers such as embryologist Dr. John Beard, Dr. Max Gerson, and Dr. Edward Howell. He tested their theories on himself and he began developing his own protocol for cancer therapy. His own successful battle with cancer impassioned him to develop one of the most elaborate and successful anti-cancer protocols ever devised.
He was not well accepted by the medical elite and in 1970 Dr. Kelley was charged with practicing medicine without a licence. This type of conviction used to freak me out and would make me lose credibility for someone like Dr. Kelley. Now after having researched many of the best alternative cancer practitioners and how they are treated (mistreated) by the medical elite, this type of conviction tells me that they are on to something that it going to take money out of Big Pharma’s pockets. He was discharged because his cancer treatments were “non-dental” not because they were “non-successful”. Around this time Dr. Kelley wrote his controversial book “One Answer to Cancer”. A local district court ruling made it illegal for Dr. Kelley to distribute this book. He appealed this decision to the Supreme Court, but he lost there too. Yes this happened in America, land of the free, not communist China!! Dr. Gonzalez, defending his mentor said, “To my knowledge, Dr. Kelley remains the only scientist in this country’s history ever forbidden by court decree from publishing.”
This backlash forced Dr. Kelley to set up a clinic in Tijuana, Mexico. He later moved to rural Washington, then Pittsburgh area, and finally to Kansas. All in all, Dr.Kelley and his practitioners treated over 33,000 patients claiming a 93% success rate for those who came to him first (ie. not after chemo, radiation, surgery). For those with a predicted life expectancy of about three months, he said that a well-designed nutritional program would yield “slightly better than a 50-50 chance of survival.” For those with a very advanced disease, given less than three months to live, he claimed a success rate between 25 and 35 percent. According to Webster Kehr of the Independent Cancer Research Foundation, ” Without going into details, what this means is that this protocol takes time to become effective. That is why this protocol is rated ONLY as being effective on newly diagnosed cancer patients who do not have a fast-growing cancer and their cancer has not spread significantly!! Webster Kehr has other recommendations for more fast acting therapies in highly advanced cancer. Dr. Kelley at the age of 79 died on Jan. 30, 2005 of a mild heart attack and upper respiratory infection, 41 years after his pancreatic cancer sentence.
What was Dr. Kelley’s understanding of the nature of cancer?
This may get a little complicated, but stay with me because it is important to know this to understand his treatments. Dr. Kelley uncovered an almost forgotten Scottish embryologist named Dr. John Beard from the University of Edinburgh, who was nominated for the Nobel Prize. In 1902, Dr. Beard recognized that cancer cells had a striking resemblance to embryonic cells called trophoblasts. Cancer cells grow very rapidly, like trophoblast cells, at the beginning of embryonic development when the fertilized egg implants on the uterus. Dr. Lawrence Wilson writes in 2011 about the trophoblast,
“It is invasive, metastatic, forms new blood vessels (angiogenesis) and has the same specific markers and chemical composition as cancer cells.”
The rapid growth of the trophoblast cells eventually become the tissue which is our placenta and this secures and nourishes the fetus in the womb. The growth of the trophoblast cells suddenly stop growing around the 8th-12th week of pregnancy. Even today this trophoblast stoppage is considered a mystery by some, but Dr. Beard, back in 1902 published a paper in the Lancet (a major medical journal) that showed that when the trophoblast cells stopped growing, this coincided with the arrival of the pancreas in the embryo. Dr. Beard theorized that the release of pancreatic enzymes is what caused this wild growth of cells to stop, and he was right. In 1911, Dr. Beard published the book,” The Enzyme Treatment of Cancer” which was a major breakthrough in cancer research. He tested mice with cancer tumors and injected doses of pancreatic enzymes with great success. He later tested humans with pancreatic enzymes and produced many amazing results which were recorded in the American Medical Journal.
Around this same time, Marie Curie’s revolutionary radiation discovery became famous as the new non-toxic cure for cancer. Consequently, Dr. Beard’s pancreatic enzyme treatment was abandoned and remained in obscurity until Dr. Kelley revived his theories in the 1960’s. The year 1911 became a major fork in the road for cancer therapy which has remained to the present day. I feel this decision to follow Marie Curie instead of Dr. Beard was a major setback in cancer treatment development, as we have adopted the wrong paradigm. Marie Curie, herself, died as a result of her exposure to uranium radiation. Dr. Gonzalez said in a youtube video that Marie Curie’s scientific journals cannot even be studied without the protection of radiation space suits.
So how does cancer start according to Dr. Kelley?
According to Dr. Kelley, from his study of Dr. Beard, he theorized that primitive “germ cells” when working properly in early embryonic development stop multiplying and then migrate to the gonads to eventually become male sperm and female eggs. What are “germ cells”? They are similar to stem cells in that can differentiate into a variety of different cells depending on what genetic signals there are given. The trophoblast cell was originally a germ cell until a genetic signal turned it into a trophoblast cell which after many multiplications became the placenta. The problem begins when these same germ cells fatigue when making their way down to the gonads. As a result of this fatigue, these germ cells never make it to the gonads to become sperm and eggs. Dr. Beard found that about 3 billion of these fatigued germ cells lay dormant throughout the body waiting for a genetic signal because in early development they never make it to the gonads.
A cancer tumor develops when one of these dormant germ cells gets a wrong genetic signal to start rapid cell growth. The germ cell gets a wrong signal and is told to become a trophoblast, which then thinks it is supposed to develop into a placenta and will keep on growing until it is told to shut off. The problem is this germ cell trophoblast is not growing in the female uterus where it will get shut off by the pancreas development. Instead, because it is in a different part of our body, it keeps on growing and you have a tumor. This non-normal trophoblast growth is then termed to be Ectopic, because it is not growing in the proper spot, the uterus. You may have heard of someone having an ectopic pregnancy, which is basically when a fertilized egg travels down the fallopian tubes and impregnate in the fallopian tubes instead of the uterus. This is a dangerous situation and must be addressed early on by a doctor.
In a healthy body, our pancreas secretes enzymes which normally take care of shutting off these false “placenta” tumor growths. When our bodies deplete our resources of pancreatic enzymes, the pancreas cannot keep up to the demand. This leads a deficiency of pancreatic enzymes, so when one of these ectopic germ cells gets a false signal to turn into a placenta, there are no pancreatic enzymes available to shut off the cell growth.
As an aside, did you know that many cancer patients (male or female) who take a pregnancy test will come up positive! Yes its true. When you go to drug store and buy a home pregnancy test, the device you buy is measuring a hormone called Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin (HCG) that is made by the embryo after conception, and later by the placenta. Dr. Howard Beard (strangely no relation to Dr. John Beard) found that cancer cells also produced high levels of HCG. He found that when the body is producing an excess of cells, HCG levels in the body increase. Dr. H. Beard surmised that if high levels of HCG were found in the urine without pregnancy, this indicated a cancer problem. More recently in 1995 Dr. Hernan Acevedo Ph D, published an important paper in the journal Cancer, concluding that HCG is produced by cancer. Dr. Ralph Moss writes,
“By using more sophisticated techniques, such as quantitative analytical flow cytometry, Dr. Acevedo has now seemingly demonstrated the presence of hCG, its subunits, and/or fragments in cells from 85 different cancer cell lines.”
Dr. Acevedo’s paper gives further credence to Dr. John Beard’s original theory that a cancer tumor is a “false pregnancy” or a “false placental growth”. Basically the body is given a false signal that it needs to prepare for pregnancy, and a false placental tumor growth appears some place in the body
Interpretation of Readings
Very Markedly Positive
Dr. Efran Navarro MD, a doctor who runs the Navarro Medical Clinic in the Philippines, presently conducts HCG tests for cancer. Here is a chart from his website.
What causes the germ cell to get the wrong signal?
Dr. Kelley stated in his book “One answer to cancer “You cannot get cancer unless 3 factors are presents”.
1) The presence of an ectopic germ cell
2) The stimulating presence of the female sex hormone
3) A deficiency of active pancreatic enzymes
Dr. Lawrence Wilson states, “The primary stimulus for the growth of the trophoblast is high estrogen, as occurs during pregnancy. ” Dr. Kelley concurred with this and implicated estrogen as the culprit behind the wrong signal delivery. A quick search on Wikipedia will show that “A hormone (from Greek ὁρμή, “impetus”) is a chemical released by a cell or a gland in one part of the body that sends out messages that affect cells in other parts of the organism”. With regards to estrogen, Dr. Kelley stated,
“All that is needed is something to stimulate the female sex hormone formation at the site of a misplaced ectopic germ cell. This is most often done by scar formation caused by a blow, a bruise, a drop of tar in the lung, a sun burn, an overdose of X-ray, or anything else that can cause a normal scar formation procedure to take place in the body — at the site of a latent ectopic germ cell.”
Dr. Lawrence Wilson further states, “Estrogen is associated with cell proliferation. Modern medicine acknowledges that estrogen is a carcinogen, for which reason estrogen inhibitors are among the drugs used for cancer.”
One might think, if the female hormone estrogen causes cancer, how to men develop cancer? The answer is that men and women both have estrogen in their bodies, just not at the same ratios. As men age, they have less testosterone and more estrogen. As Dr. Kelley stated above, when some sort of trauma occurs and this is mixed with an abnormal level of estrogen in the body, wrong signals get sent and the “trophoblast tumor” begins. If one has a deficiency in pancreatic enzymes this tumor growth will go unabated.
So what causes the deficiency in pancreatic enzymes?
According to Dr. Kelley,
83% — Overworking the pancreas by the intake of too much protein
10% — Neurological injury to pancreatic enzyme production
7% — Malfunction of body chemistry inactivating the enzymes
If we examine our typical North American Diet, we clearly eat an exorbitant amount of protein. I know I do. I love my burgers, chicken breasts, pork chops, steaks, hot dogs, milk, eggs, etc… . Dr. Kelley would not say protein should be avoided, rather it should be kept in proper balance as to not overload the pancreas. Dr. Kelley clearly states, ” the body must have protein to live.” Here are some considerations that Dr. Kelley would suggest here help out our all-important pancreas, (I’m paraphrasing)
1) Watch the quantity of food you ingest. Not too much!! This will overload the pancreas
2) Eat a proper balance of foods. Not too much protein.
3) Ingest proper amounts of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids to assist normal metabolism within the pancreas and release enzyme activity
4) Maintain a proper pH (acid/alkaline) in the intestinal tract and around tumor mass
5) Avoid chemical toxins which interfere with normal pancreatic functions which come from food, environment, drugs, metabolic wastes, and medications.
6) Maintain a positive emotional and spiritual state and avoid toxic emotions. This allows proper body functioning.
7) Avoid traumas and scarring as this will misdirect pancreatic secretions away from the intestines for absorptions to the rest of the body
8) Avoid radiation which kills pancreatic enzymes
There other suggestions he would make, but these are the main ones I would take from his book.
So what is Dr. Kelley’s protocol to fight and cure cancer?
As mentioned above, Dr. Kelley’s protocol is quite elaborate, but in his book “One Answer to Cancer” he summarized 5 main areas of steps to follow:
Detoxification Of The Body
Adequate, Proper, Well-Balanced Diet
As most health educated people know, the North American diet is highly deficient in many vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. Our love of processed foods, hydrogenated oils, trans fats, and microwaving leaves us with food with little to no nutrient value. Even our “healthy foods” are suffering from genetic modification, pesticides, and soil nutrient loss. High nutrient, organic food needs to become more accepted especially for those who are sick. I used to think “organic” was for tree-hugging, commi-pinkos. Now, with diseases like cancer, heart disease, and diabetes becoming almost epidemic, maintaining proper, healthy nutrient intake through healthy food and oral supplementation is becoming more critical. Even a hot-dog-lovin guy like me, must face the facts to start making some changes. Dr. Kelley knew all of this full well.
An area that Dr. Kelley felt our society is deficient is the eating of organ meats. In our culture we rarely eat organ meats like the all-important pancreas, liver, kidney, stomach, intestinal tract tripe, and lung. Oh, I bet your taste buds are watering after reading that list :). “I can’t wait to go home and eat some kidney!!” Because this type of statement is very rare in our culture, this must be ingested in the form of supplements. With regards to the pancreas Dr. Kelley says this,
“Pancreas tissue …. without a doubt, indicated by our 30 odd years of research, is the most deficient item in our food chain. It should be noted that the pancreas is the most needed of all the missing organ meats from our diets. It must be supplied in our diets or serious deficiencies result.”
Supplementation of pancreatic enzyme pills in high doses is a big part of Dr. Kelley’s protocol. The pics above are not the specific ones Dr. Gonzalez uses, but they give you an idea of pancreatic enzyme supplements. These enzymes must be processed at low temperature, because enzymes die at high temperature. Dr. Gonzalez, Dr. Kelley’s protegé in New York City, is one of the only doctors practicing the Kelley protocol presently. In an interview, Dr. Gonzalez said that he was quite specific on where he gets his pancreatic tissue to make his supplements. He said New Zealand is probably the healthiest place left in the world to get organ tissue because of the cleanest environment, strictest laws on pollution & pesticide, free-range and grass-fed animals. He buys pig pancreases in New Zealand where his pancreatic enzyme supplements are made.
The Kelley protocol is also quite different from other alternative supplementation. Typical nutritional advice from conventional and alternative practitioners is a “one size fits all” philosophy. Meaning everyone should take the same type of healthy foods and supplements. Dr. Kelley didn’t see it that way. He realized through trial and error that everyone has a different metabolism and that it is best to customize supplements based on each person’s specific metabolic type. He termed this “Metabolic Typing”. Kelley developed different enzyme formulas to accommodate the specific health status and metabolic type of each patient. He developed
“Formulas A, Ca+, E and L are for those who have been clinically diagnosed with cancer/malignant tumor masses. Formulas H, P and W are for metabolic repair and the rebuilding of one’s body.”
Once Dr. Kelley would decide a patients formula protocol, the patient would have to take about 96 of these formula pills each day. Each formula addressed four main areas of defence–” the pancreas; the immune system; mineral balance; calcium metabolism.” 96 pills!! Yes 96 pills. Why so many pills? According to Dr. Kelley,
“You take so many pills in order to be sure that your glands will be totally supported, your immune system highly stimulated, and your body chemistry properly balanced. You take so many pills because the objective of Metabolic Medicine’s Cancer Cure Program is to turn your degeneration into your regeneration. “
The key difference here between conventional chemo pills and these Kelley formula pills is that they are non-toxic to the body. They are body-building, not body-weakening (See my last blog on the Big 3 protocols). Dr. Kelley’s pills are healthy for our cells and chemo pills are toxic to our cells. It’s a different paradigm.
Your probably saying, “96 pills/day can’t be cheap”. You’re right, the Kelley protocol is not a cheap alternative cancer treatment. The cost of the pills could cost close to $2000/month. To put this in perspective though, this is roughly about 3-4 times cheaper than a typical chemo pill regiment. With Kelley claiming a 93% success rate for typical cancer patients who came to him first, I’d say its worth the money. I understand, this is still out of price feasibility for many, so I would recommend checking out www.cancertutor.com for cheaper protocols. In Canada, our healthcare system covers the expensive chemo pills, but not alternative pills like Dr. Kelley’s. I think if the government is willing to pay for chemo pills at 3-4 times the price, could we not have a choice to choose our own protocol and save our healthcare system some money at the same time. Seems like a simple decision if we value human freedom of choice. But lets not be naive, it’s Big Pharma controlled, so my statement is really a pipe-dream.
Detoxification of the Body
In 1963, when Dr. Kelley first began testing Dr. Beard’s theory by ingesting pancreatic enzymes along with a mostly raw fruits and vegetables, water-soaked nuts, beans and brown rice diet, he began to notice his tumor in his pancreas got smaller. The problem is that he began to feel sick and would often throw up. When he stopped taking the enzymes for a few days he started to feel better, but he also noticed when he felt his tumor, it got bigger again. He would take the pancreatic enzymes again, and the tumor would shrink but he would feel sick and throw up again. He desperately wanted to shrink his tumor, but his body seemed to have a very low threshold for the enzymes.
He began to realize that when the enzymes attacked his tumor, the remaining tumor debris became toxic to his system. He connected that this is similar to how someone on chemo feels when toxins build up from tumor debris. A chemo patient has the additional effects of the toxicity of the chemicals themselves which produce a double toxic effect. Dr. Kelley felt people on chemo, die not from the cancer, but from the double toxicity of the tumor waste and the chemo chemicals. He concluded that detoxification of this tumor debris was essential if he was to continue ingesting the pancreatic enzymes. In his book “One Answer to Cancer” he states,
“the blood cannot accept further debris from the cells and, before long, there are 70 to 100 trillion garbage cans completely full. It is like the city dump being filled to capacity and not accepting any more garbage trucks.”
In his search for detox methods, Dr. Kelley became acquainted with the work of the German, Dr. Max Gerson. Dr. Kelley learned that the liver and gallbladder are the essential organs of detoxification in the body, the liver being the primary one. The liver is the essential organ of the body for detoxification, and it is generally over-worked by our North American diet. The gall-bladder is connected to the liver and is responsible for secreting a substance called “bile”. This yellowish liquid interacts with the liver to carry away the toxins from the liver and empty into to small intestine, which then eliminates from the body out through the rectum. So to assist the liver-bile-gallbladder detox system, Dr. Kelley developed a 4 principle Liver-GallBladder Flush. Here it is:
Apple juice (high in malic acid) or ortho-phosphoric acid, which acts as a solvent in the bile to weaken adhesions between solid globules.
Epsom salt (magnesium sulfate), taken by mouth and enema, which allows magnesium to be absorbed into the bloodstream, relaxing smooth muscles. Large solid particles which otherwise might create spasms are able to pass through a relaxed bile duct.
Olive oil, unrefined, which stimulates the gall bladder and bile duct to contract powerfully, thus expelling solid particles kept in storage for years.
Coffee enemas, which consist of a coffee solution retained in the colon. They activate the liver to secrete its waste into the bile, enhancing bile flow and further relaxing the bile duct muscle.
The final step, the coffee enema, is considered the most important part of this detox process. You’re probably saying, “Coffee WHAT??” “Enema??” This involves injecting coffee up the rectum, letting it sit there for about 10-15 minutes, and then “pooping” it out. Yes, I realize this may seem quite bizarre, but this detox technique actually has a long history. Ancient Egyptians used anal cleansing, and in 1920 Dr. Max Gerson popularized the use of body temperature liquid coffee in enemas for detoxification. Coffee enemas were actually listed in the Merck Manual (the world’s best-selling medical textbook) until 1972, until it was mysteriously taken out. I recently purchased a cd set called “Your Road to Health” which was developed by cancer researcher Michael Vrentas. He has developed a combination cancer protocol called “Cellect/Budwig” which combines many of the best cancer protocols into one system. Mr. Vrentas found that some of his adherents used the coffee enema part of the protocol and others did not. It has a clear psychological barrier which some will not cross. He noticed the ones who did the coffee enema part, healed quicker and generally had better results.
What does a coffee enema do?
When coffee is taken rectally, the caffeine travels through the small intestine and stimulates the liver to release bile waste out of the liver back to the small intestine and out the rectum. The coffee also acts as a good solvent for encrusted wastes along the walls of the colon. Hmm!! sounds very appetizing? Dr. Kelley summarizes the effect,
“Essentially, the coffee enemas help the liver perform a task for which it was not designed — that of elimination in 1 or 2 years the accumulated wastes from many years of living in ignorance of the laws of nature.”
Normally, bile is recycled through the gallbladder-liver-small intestine process and is not fully cleansed of all its toxins into the small intestines. When this happens toxins that are not eliminated are recycled. The caffeine from the coffee enema stimulates a more complete cleansing of the bile so that the toxins are not recycled back to the body. Dr. Kelley had a strict protocol for the coffee enema to maximize the effect and to avoid infection which is too involved to elaborate here. For further details refer to http://www.drkelley.com/CANLIVER55.html under the coffee enema section. Dr. Kelley, himself, took a daily coffee enema for 35 years. Dr. Gonzalez (Dr. Kelley’s protegé) said in an interview with S.A. Wilson,
“I ve been using them for 14 years with only one effect: I felt better from the first one I did. I’ve never looked back & I feel great when I do them. All the terrible things that are supposed to happen don’t happen. Coffee enemas don’t destroy bowel function or wipe out your intestinal flora, but what they do is help the liver work better. They are extremely powerful, one of the most powerful detox procedures that we use. My whole staff does them. They just feel better when they do.”
There is some controversy over coffee enemas in the medical world. There are concerns over rectal infections, electrolyte imbalance, colitis, and possible heart failure. On Wikipedia, it says “The use of coffee enemas has led to several deaths as a result of severe electrolyte imbalance.”
Dr. Gonzalez says he has researched the entire world’s medical literature on coffee enemas and he found only 3 deaths attributed to this treatment. He also said in a youtube video that these 3 claims were quite dubious because the patients were already very sick from other complications, and 1 of the patients wildly overdid the coffee enema. If you compare this to the fact that literally hundreds of thousands of people have done coffee enemas through Dr. Gerson, Dr. Kelley, Dr. Gonzalez, and many others, with little to no problems, I would be skeptical to the motive behind the negative report on Wikipedia. Remember, very little money can be made off coffee enemas, so as is pretty common with any successful alternative cancer technique, you find conventional websites like Wikipedia overemphasizing the problems, and underemphasizing the success. You may think I have jumped on the conspiracy theory boat, but the more I look into this stuff, the more I am convinced that there is some “monkey business” going on. Dr. Lawrence Wilson M.D. summarizes his use of coffee enemas,
” I have recommended coffee retention enemas to more than thirty thousand people. I have yet to hear about horrible side effects of any kind, although the procedure is somewhat inconvenient, especially at first. Most people get used to it quickly. The coffee retention enema is really quite simple, very safe when done properly, highly effective, able to be done in the privacy of your home, and inexpensive.”
Inexpensive is not something cancer drug companies want to hear. Dr. Kelley also recommended a kidney cleanse, lung cleanse, skin cleanse, and nostril cleanse. See http://www.drkelley.com/CANLIVER55.html for details.
Adequate, Proper, Well-Balanced Diet
I hope you are still with me, as this blog is quite lengthy. I feel I need to give Dr. Kelley’s protocol the attention it needs. So back to the third part of the Kelley protocol, adequate, proper, and well-balanced diet. In 424 BC Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, said “Your food shall be your medicine and your medicine shall be your food.” Dr. Kelley stated,
“At least 86% of all cancer conditions could be adequately treated and/or prevented by diet alone.”
Dr. Kelley had a very extensive nutritional program. He stressed a 4 phase system, a complex individually specific nutritional test called Metabolic Typing, and other general nutritional rules.
4 Phase System
Key points to Phase 1-Proteins
1) The greatest cause of pancreatic enzyme deficiency is too much protein (Meat, Milk, Cheese, Eggs, etc…). ” If people would not eat protein after 1:00 p.m., 86% of cancer in the United States could be eliminated.”
2) Too much protein or too little protein are both bad. Balance is needed otherwise the pancreas suffers from both ends.
3) Proteins should be eaten for breakfast and lunch only. “the pancreatic enzymes, used in digestion of protein, are used only about 6 hours. This leaves 18 hours for production of pancreatic enzymes to digest cancer tissue.”
4) Eggs are a good source of protein but should be eaten raw or hard-boiled. The egg must be heated in shell or raw to retain enzymes.
5) Ingesting clean raw liver meat. “Raw organic, antibiotic-free and hormone-free liver contains a multitude of live enzymes, amino acids and other intrinsic factors that science has not yet identified, which are destroyed when the liver is cooked.”
6) Cooked and commercially produced meat must be avoided (beef, pork, lamb, fowl). Cooked meat delivers toxins to the body and commercially produced meat has high estrogen content, which must be avoided. After 9-12 months, when tumors are under control, you may resume gradual meat intake, as long as your metabolic type requires it and adequate enzymes & hydrochloric acid are ingested.
7) Dry beans, raw seeds, and sprouts are good sources of proteins and may be eaten after 1pm. Alfalfa, Mung beans, buckwheat, soybean, sesame, sunflower, and pumpkin seeds are good sources.
Keys to Phase 2–Vegetable Juice and Fruit Juice
It has been said if you want to be healthy, “drink your veggies, and poop your coffee“. Dr. Max Gerson highly emphasized this.
1) Veggies and Fruits should be “juiced” raw and fresh. To obtain the same amount of nutrients as a glass of fresh veggie or fruit juice would require a huge intake orally. Juicing is also easier to digest than eating them and juicing also provides a proper balance of vitamins and minerals. “God knows best” as they say because veggie juices are body builders. (ie. carrots, celery, alfalfa, beet, cabbage, cucumber, dandelion, endive, lettuce, parsley, potato, spinach, and turnip juice)
2) Fruits and fruit juices (made in a juicer) are natural body cleansers. You may take as much as you feel you need.
3) Eating fruits and fresh salads should also be included as bulk is needed to fill full and keep the digestive tract moving. Avoid bad oils (hydrogenated oils, canola, processed vegetable oil) and use organic, cold-pressed flax oil or olive oil. The high heating of processed oil is dangerous to our health. Lemon is also a good salad dressing.
Keys to Phase 3 –Whole grain cereal
1) Raw whole grain cereals for breakfast as a multi-grain porridge builds the body
2) Nuts, seeds and grains when mixed together should be kept in a cool, dark place or refrigerator for storage to avoid becoming rancid.
3) The goal here is to have as wide a variety grain & seed gene pools as possible. These provide protein and good essential fatty acids. (almonds, brown rice, sunflower seeds, buckwheat, millet wheat, oats, etc…)
4) For flavor add fruits, fruit juice, and unheated unpasturized honey. The good nutrients in honey die at high temperature.
Keys to Phase 4–Flax Oil
Dr. Kelley studied the work of German researcher, Dr. Johanna Budwig, who was a world acclaimed expert on oils and Essential Fatty Acids (EFA’s). She found that patients who had cancer, diabetes, and liver disease consistently lacked EFA’s. She also found that healthy people’s blood always contained EFA’s. She concluded that a diet high in EFA’s would fight these diseases.
1) Flax oil, above all other oils, contains the highest level of EFA’s. Flax oil cannot be heated and must be ingested at room temperature. (ie. salads or by table-spoon)
2) Unrefined flax oil fights tumor growth, whereas heated flax oil as all commercialized vegetable oils promote tumor growth. (ie. trans fats) There are only a few oils that remain stable in high temperature for cooking (ie. coconut oil). “All oils except unrefined, fresh olive and flaxseed oil are forbidden on Metabolic Medicine’s Cancer Cure Diet. “
3) “Fat that has not been heated above 96º F. in the form of unsalted raw butter, raw eggs, raw cream, the fat in and on raw meats, no-salt-added raw cheeses, avocados, fresh coconut and stone-pressed olive oil is acceptable on Metabolic Medicine’s Cancer Cure Diet. These fats are the easiest to digest, assimilate, and utilize and aid the body in binding with toxins and carrying them to the bowels and out of the body.”
***Note, Dr. Budwig found that for flax oil to be absorbed at the cellular level, it must be blended with cottage cheese or quark cheese (German cottage cheese) to make the flax oil water-soluble in the blood. This is a key to the cancer puzzle that Dr. Kelley may have missed as he didn’t mention this in his book.
Some Basic Nutritional Rules of Avoidance
1) “Eat no Processed food for the first six months”
2) “Many enzymes are destroyed at 107º F. and almost all are destroyed at 140º F.” Maximize raw food and minimize cooked foods. A sick person cannot afford to eat dead food.
3) Milk must be avoided because it has too much protein and therefore uses too many pancreatic enzymes. Milk also has high estrogen levels which a cancer patient cannot afford to ingest.
4) Avoid peanuts because of their high protein and they are prone to a cancer causing fungus called aflatoxin.
5) White flour, White rice, and White sugar must be avoided because they are hard on the liver and pancreas and are devoid of nutrients. Whole grain pesticide-free bread, brown rice, maple syrup and unheated honey are allowed substitutes.
6) Soy products (high protein), Vinegar (too acidic), coffee, soft drinks, chocolate, liquor, tobacco, pork must be avoided during this diet detox.
One of the signature aspects of Dr. Kelley’s nutritional and supplement program is his use of Metabolic typing. He found through trial and error that some patients did not do well with the standard “one size fits all” diet or supplement prescription. Dr. Kelley discovered that certain people thrive on certain foods and others thrive on different types of foods. He noticed that some people did not thrive on vegetarian diets, yet others did thrive on these diets.
Dr. Kelley discovered each person’s metabolism of food is controlled by the involuntary nervous system. Our voluntary nervous system works by our will and choices (walking, eating, singing, etc…). The involuntary nervous system or autonomic nervous system (ANS) controls things in our body “automatically” beyond our consciousness (heartbeat, respiration, digestion). Dr. Kelley stated,
“The autonomic nervous system is the master regulator of metabolism. It determines how efficiently and effectively the body uses food, water and air.”
The ANS is further broken down into 2 main systems. The sympathetic nervous system (SNS) and the parasympathetic nervous system (PNS). The SNS regulates the body by speeding things up (ie. muscular system, heart, thyroid and parathyroid glands, gonads, (ovaries or testes), uterus or prostate and adrenal medulla) whereas the PNS regulates the body by slowing things down (ie. immune system, lungs, pineal gland, adrenal cortex (which secretes cortisone) and the organs of the digestive system).
Dr. Kelley discovered that certain people metabolically are either one of three groups A) SNS dominant B) PNS dominant C) a balance of PNS and SNS. These are further broken down to 10 Metabolic Types. Dr. Kelley developed a very large 3200 question questionnaire which would be used to determine very precisely which type one would belong to. For example, do you work best in the morning or at night? etc… This is called “Dr. Kelley’s Self-Test for the Different Metabolic Types.” This can be ordered on amazon. Here is a brief description:
A SNS dominant person (Type 1, Type 4, Type 6) are typically the “get up and go” type people who have high energy who love exercise and are generally Type A personality. They tend to be more emotional, impatient and have difficulty winding down to sleep. Because these people constantly going internally, they require high amounts of nutrients to keep going. These people do best on a more vegetarian diet because they do not digest very well. They do best on food and supplements that speed up the PNS and decrease the SNS to balance out. They are usually thin and “cut”.
“Sympathetic Dominant Metabolizers most often need: Vitamin D; Vitamin K; Ascorbic Acid; Biotin; Folic Acid; Vitamins B1, B2 and B6; PABA; Niacin; Potassium; Magnesium; Manganese; Zinc; Chromium; Hydrochloric Acid; Pancreatic Enzymes and Amino Acids. Each of the vegetarian Types (One, Four and Six) need these supplements, but each type needs different amounts and different ratios.”
A PNS dominant person (Type 2, Type 5, Type 7) are typically more “chilled out”, easy-going, friendly, and don’t like to be rushed. They have good digestion and usually a good immune system. They are a little lethargic and fall asleep easily. These people need and crave more of a meat diet and do better with it. These people tend to have large appetites and are generally overweight.
“Parasympathetic dominant metabolizers most often need such nutritional support as: Vitamins E and B-12; Niacinamide, Pantothenic Acid, Choline, Inositol, Calcium, Phosphorus, Calcium Ascorbate, Bioflavonoid Complex, Zinc and Ribonucleic Acid. These metabolizers should be eaten at bedtime and are enough to carry them through the night. They should not eat leafy green vegetables or take large quantities of the B vitamins.”
A Balanced PNS/SNS person (Type 3, Type 8, Type 9, Type 10) generally have their PNS and SNS nervous system working well together. They don’t metabolize their food too fast or too slow. They people can thrive on a variety of foods whether they be vegetarian or meats. Their personalities are more balanced not going to either extreme.
“Balanced metabolizers generally need such nutritional support as Vitamins A, B-1, B-2, B-6, B-12, Niacinamide, Vitamin C, Bioflavonoids, Vitamin E, Folic Acid, Biotin, Pantothenic Acid, PABA, Calcium, Phosphorus, Magnesium, Manganese, Chromium and Zinc. Each of the balanced Types Three, Five, Nine and Ten needs these supplements but each type needs different amounts and in different ratios. They also require extra amounts of Hydrochloric Acid and Pancreatic Enzymes.”
Structural and Neurological Stimulation
Dr. Kelley felt that the nerve supply to the pancreas and the liver was very important. If nerve impulses are blocked or damaged this causes these organs to not function properly. As we have learned the pancreas and liver must be working efficiently to beat cancer. Manipulative therapy from a chiropractor, osteopath, physiotherapist, and dentist is needed to make sure all nerve impulses are flowing freely.
As a doctor of dental surgery (D.D.S.), Dr. Kelley was very familiar with dental bone structure. He recommended using a dental therapy called Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Equilibration. The TMJ joint the name of the joint just in front of the ear where the lower jaw hinges on the right and left side. When this joint is “out”, “distressing or painful conditions as earache, headache, head noises, clicking sounds, dizziness, nervousness and even mental troubles.” This can be done by a dentist familiar with this technique.
He also recommended CranioSacral Therapywhich is a hands on approach of assessing the bone and cerebrospinal fluid from the skull, down through the vertebrae to the tailbone (sacrum). Manipulating the areas ensures proper nerve flow.
Basically a visit to the chiropractor would be an advisable thing to do for anyone suffering from any physical or mental problems. Nerves are much like our arteries, if they get pinched or blocked, bad things start to happen.
Dr. Kelley felt it was very important to have a faith in God to successfully beat cancer. He stated,
“Since we are dealing with the metabolic approach to cancer, we must consider not only the physical, but also the mental and spiritual laws of God. We need help from those around us as well as the God power within to reverse our thinking, and attain that balance which creates a healthy physical being.”
He clearly believed that inviting Jesus into one’s life was a true and real help. He stated,
“If your cancer has caused you to look within and ask the Christ to dwell within you”
Dr. Kelley believed that just as we need to be detoxified physically, we must also be detoxified spiritually. Toxic emotions like bitterness, anger, and resentment must be addressed. It has been said that bitterness “eats like a cancer” and forgiveness is one of the greatest healers. Cancer survivor Britta Aragon writes,
” Holistic healer Poorvi Mittal writes that while running a small homeopathic practice, she treated many people suffering from various types of cancer, and found that what they all had in common was tremendous anger and resentment.”
“The Journal of Psychosomatic Research found that extreme suppression of anger was the most common characteristic among 160 breast cancer patients.”
Dr. Kelley gave a 7 step approach to developing the a proper spiritual attitude.
Accept the fact that you are afflicted with a symptom (malignant cancer) and that recovery is possible.
Establish a faith in a power greater than yourself and know that with His help you can regain health and harmony.
Make the decision to turn your will and your life over to the care of God.
Conduct a complete self-analysis to better understand your own emotions.
Admit to God, to yourself, and to others the exact nature of what you find to be your shortcomings.
Be willing to give up what you are doing wrong.
Seek through prayer to improve your conscious contact with God. Pray only for knowledge of His will for you and the strength to carry that out
How did Dr. Kelley view doctors?
Dr. Kelley felt every cancer patient should seek assistance from their doctor, but at the same time they should take control of their own health. He said, “Seek A Physician To Work With You, Not On You.” To him, it was important to have professional advice from a doctor about your cancer status and to listen to their advice, but one must take responsibility for one’s own health. Don’t check your brain at the door.
Well that’s about it for now. I feel I have done my best to summarize Dr. Kelley’s cancer protocol, but if you want a fuller understanding of his protocol, you should do your own research. One of the things you are probably wondering, “Why is Dr. Kelley’s cancer protocol not more widely used and more sufficiently proven in the medical literature.” That will have to wait for my next blog.
