They include herbs and non-herbs, metabolic and immunotherapies, non-toxic chemical mixtures, and electromagnetic technologies. Read more for a more complete overview of the top cancer treatment alternatives.

Natural Cancer Treatments - Top 10 Cancer Alternatives That Work: Overview

Copyright (c) 2009-2017
(See This Article in its Original Format.)

Step 1: Healing Power

What does it take to heal your body when cancer it growing inside of you? The best chance you have, of course, is to nourish your body to build defenses against a turn-coat invader. Your success, regardless of treatment choice, depends on your own healing power.

Mainstream Treatments Are Not The Answer

Once you are doing everything you can to be healthy, then and only then is it worthwhile to go after the cancer itself. This is because so many treatments are much harsher than need be if you are already weakened. Indeed, research is already pretty clear that chemotherapy would make you sick even if you didn?t have cancer.

In addition, radiation therapy creates a huge inflammation load ? meaning that it literally cooks your insides and turns your own tissues into a toxic wasteland. Finally, surgery is a brutal assault that adds new dangers to your health, with no certainty that all cancerous cells have been removed.

How Many Alternative Cancer Treatments Are There?

Probably thousands. Every culture worldwide has used herbs against cancer. The top single herbs in North America, for example, would have to include bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis) and chaparral (Larrea tridentata). The most widely used multi-herb mixtures in modern times have probably been Essiac and the Hoxsey formula.

A tiny fraction of plants that have been studied for anticancer properties have actually made it into modern clinical practice. This just means that very few active herbal ingredients have been discovered to kill tumors like synthetic chemotherapy drugs do. The longest-running use of so-called natural drugs entails isolating vincristine and vinblastine alkaloids from the Madagascar periwinkle (Catharanthus roseus). These highly toxic chemicals are used in treating certain kinds of leukemia, especially in children.

These comments point to the use of herbs historically as well as currently, in both mainstream and alternative medicine. What about other, non-herbal alternatives? This is where cancer treatments really get interesting.

Non-Herbal Cancer Treatments

Animal natural products, especially of marine organisms, include some of the most toxic natural chemotherapies yet discovered. These are not what I call alternatives, because they are under development to be used as isolated drugs, the same way as the periwinkle alkaloids are used.

Probably the most famous animal product among alternative treatments is shark cartilage. The widespread myth about sharks not getting cancer has often been used to support claims about shark cartilage for treating cancer. Sharks do get cancer. Research does, nevertheless, show that shark cartilage inhibits the growth of vascular tissue that feed tumors, thereby slowing tumor growth.

Other non-herbal cancer treatments would include products from mushrooms. I call them non-herbal because these organisms have not been classified in the plant kingdom since the 1950s. Mushroom products predominantly include various polysaccharide fractions that serve to enhance the immune system. They are commonly derived from maitake, shiitake, or reishi mushrooms.

Chemical Mixtures Against Cancer

Although chemical mixtures sound scary, the cancer treatment alternatives in this category are nothing like chemotherapy drugs. Each of the following has been used successfully for decades, with little or no side effects when used properly:

  • Hydrazine sulfate

  • 714X

  • Antineoplastons

  • Cesium chloride

  • Laetrile

  • Vitamin C (ascorbic acid)

  • Protocel Mixture

  • Immunotherapies And Metabolic Therapies

    Dozens of protocols have been created by cancer clinicians in several countries. This broad class of cancer treatments typically entails multiple phases, often linked to nutritional support. The best of these have been banished from the U.S., usually reappearing in cancer clinics in Tijuana or Juarez, Mexico.

    Five of the most successful of the immune/metabolic therapies are:

    1. Issels Whole Body Therapy

    2. Revici Therapy

    3. Livingston Therapy

    4. Immuno-Augmentative Therapy

    5. Proteolytic Enzyme Therapy

    Electromagnetic Therapies

    The fundamental research by Dr. Royal Raymond Rife is the hallmark of this treatment approach. His research in the 1930s still stands out, and it has come down through the years in the development of several Rife-Technology devices. Some are now commercially available for research purposes (meaning, you have to at least claim to be a researcher to use one on yourself). A similar modality was invented by Georges Lakhovsky, which he called the Multiple Wave Oscillator. A modernized invention by Gene Koonce that combines the technology of Rife and Lakhovsky is now available as what is called a Vibe Machine.

    These kinds of machines are not generally approved as medical devices by the FDA. Indeed, when any such machine gets too popular, the FDA swoops in and shuts things down. Royal Rife was continuously harassed until the day he died. And the main source of information and products on the Vibe Machine was shut down in 2008. Nevertheless, the Vibe Machine has resurfaced as the Quantum Pulse device.

    What To Do Now

    Since this article merely lists several kinds of cancer treatments, the work you must do is to research each one fully. A small handful of books offer fairly comprehensive lists and brief explanations of different kinds of treatments. The most thorough one is probably the 1997 book, An Alternative Medicine Definitive Guide to Cancer, although it is a little out of date now. Nevertheless, any work you put into digging out the details of these alternative treatments can pay off in a big way for your health and wellness in the face of cancer.

    Its very name is appealing - comfort food. What could be more wonderful than a food that helps us feel better? Almost everyone can name something that they eat when they're just feeling sour or sad. Of course, we know that food can't be the solution to our problems, especially the problem of trying to lose weight and keep it off. So why do we find ourselves trapped in the eat/feel better/feel worse/eat some more cycle?

    Health responses to mold spores can be affected by the length of time you are exposed to spores, the size or type of spore you are exposed to, the levels of dust mite and roach allergens, individual sensitivity to allergens, emotional stress, general health, as well as other substances and factors that have not yet been discovered by mold inspectors. Thus, as a result mold spore levels alone at your property cannot always be relied on to always answer questions such as "Are molds in my environment making me sick."

Similarly, everyone knows that they should be getting exercise - or at the very least adding more activity into their days.

The number of mask options available is confounding. Based upon comfort, fit, good seal, and durability, we recommend the following three full face CPAP masks.
