In his landmark book, CANCER AND
VITAMIN C, Linus Pauling tells
about an American man, age 40, who
was diagnosed with chronic lymphocytic leukemia. The cancer
had invaded his bone marrow, induced
crushed fractures in his vertebrae,
and disabled him. This happened in
1974. The patient would permit no
chemo or raditaion, though he did
accept a blood transfusion (1 pint)
On his own, the man began taking 35
grams of vitamin C per day. His
doctors laughed at him, but within
a few months, the patient was in
complete clinical and hematological
remission. He stopped taking the
blood transfusions, went back to work, and resumed his life. In 1978,
when Pauling wrote the book, the now
44 year-old man described himself as "the healthiest sick man around."
His stunned doctors admitted that
he "basically has no disease."
The vitamin C literature is full of
stories like that, stories of
people with hideous diseases, who
cured themselves by taking mega-doses of vitamin C.
Here's an important quote from Linus
Pauing about why vitamin C is critical to good health:
"Vitamin C is not a drug with the
specific ability to fight cancer or
hepatitis or any other single disease. It is instead a natural,
essential substance that may participate in almost all of the chemical reactions that take place in our bodies, and is required for many of them. Our bodies can fight
disease effectively only when we have in our organs and body-fluids, enough vitamin C to enable out natural protective mechanisms to
So here's what I'd do if I had l had leukemia. But first I need to say that I'm not a doctor or a healer. These are suggestions
only. Trust your intuition about whether to follow up on some of them or not.
I'd begin taking oral vitamin
C in the form of sodium ascorbate
crystals. I'd start with 2,000 mg
on Day #1, and double the amount on
each succeeding day. Having
cancer, I don't think one's going to
reach bowel tolerance (diarrhea)
until one's well over 40,000 mg (40 grams) a day.
When one does reach bowel tolerance,
back off a few grams, and keep the
daily dosage there. Example: If one
reaches bowel tolerance at 55 grams,
back off to 50 grams for the next
day's dose. Trust your intuition.
Bronson Vitamins is a good source of
sodium ascorbate crystals. Their
order line is 1-800-235-3200. You
want a kilo of product # 50. It costs around $37.00. A kilo is 2.2
lbs. A little white spoon comes with
the kilo. It holds 1,000 mg (1 gram)
Since you need it ASAP, I'd ask if
they have overnight delivery.
Or go out to your health food store,
and buy some vitamin C. If they don't have sodium ascorbate crystals, try to get some non-acidic
tablets. You can crush them into powder, and add them to juice. 1,000
mg is about one-quarter teaspoon.
I'd also try to find a clinic in your area that gives vitamin infusions. Ask at the library, the
chamber of commerce, or, better yet,
some Naturopath or chiropractor you
A vitamin C infusion -- say 75,000
mg -- will go right into your bloodstream instantly. The
immune system will use it as ammunition to fight the leukemia.
Cancer patients in Australia have
been given up to 500,000 mg of vitamin C per day. There were no
bad spinoffs -- and none of them
reached bowel tolerance. Their bodies NEEDED those enormous amounts
of vitamin C.
First, if you haven't already pulled yourself out of school, or work, do so. Healing
a serious diease and is a full-time job.
You should look into Doctor Richard
Schulze's 30-Day Detox progam, which
used to be called the Incurables
Program. The kit comes with all the
required herbs and foods, as well as
a guide that tells you exactly what
to do on each of the 30 days. It's
not an easy program, but lots of
people have done it successfully.
You'll definitely need a juicer.
Dr. Schulze 's website is:www.herbdoc.com
His order line is 1-800-HERB-DOC
Go to the Doctor Schulze Forum and
read some of the posts by people
who've done the Incurables Program.
I also suggest you go to the breastCancer Forum , and read a three-part
post of mine from Oct 1st, 2004.
It was titled, "My advice for fighting those tumors."
In it, I suggested taking AHCC, an
anti-cancer supplement from Japan,
that is made mostly of medicinal
mushrooms. If I had cancer, I would
deifintely take AHCC. You can buy
it from Tunies.com
Thirty 500 mg capsules cost around
$32.00. It's not cheap, but it is
perhaps the best. I think so, and so
does Dr. David Williams, one of the
superstars of alternative health.
I'd also take Pau d'arco, either
as tea or powder. It has a
legendary reputation as a cancer-killer.
I'd also buy a copy of the CD
I cited in that old post of Oct 1st:
Belleruth Naparstek's, HEALTH JOURNEYS FOR PEOPLE WITH CANCER.
I would listen
to that morning and night. The CD
is full of positive energy. The 20
minutes of affirmations alone are
worth their weight in gold.
Cancer can only live in an atmosphere where there is no oxygen.
One should take long walks
every day and one should breathe
in and out DEEPLY through the nose.
Not to the point of straining; just
nice, deep, even breaths. Tell your
body to take the fresh
oxygen to the cancer cells.Come up with a visualiztion
in which you see the oxygen destroying the cancer cells; some tiny animals or fish, etc., munching happily on the cancer cells.
You'll find lots of other suggestions on the cancer forums,
including products with oxygen in
them. Again, trust your intuition.
I hope something I said proves helpful to you in your fight to heal this cowardly disease. I will keep you in my prayers. Please let us know if you
