Alternative Cancer Treatments

1979 Around January of that year, I went
home to die.
I was diagnosed with stage 2 stomach cancer, chronic bronchitis,
acutely infected ovarian cysts, arthritis, sciatica, low thyroid,
anemia and a heart condition. Besides that I had chronic ear infections
and long-standing clinical depression. The late Dr.
Harold Dick, N.D., known as a "naturopathic oncology pioneer"
cured me in 5 weeks. It required the diagnosis (the Carroll
Food Test) of digestive enzyme
deficiency food intolerances which most people have and few
know about, and it also identified the primary tissue
salt deficiency, along with treatment with glandular
protomorphogens to restore glandular health, and Constitutional
Hydrotherapy to bring about detoxification, to stimulate blood
circulation and the activity of the vital organs and to jump-start
the immune system. It turned out to be the basic foundation of the
most successful healing system I've ever witnessed.
1986 My 5-year-old daughter was forcibly vaccinated
and immediately developed a flesh-eating
infection so virulent that my husband and I became infected
from contact. Naturopathic medicine brought us back from the brink.
Later that year
we were introduced to escharotic
cancer salves and treated a dog tumor, my husband's cirrhosis
of the liver, various skin lesions, moles, fungal infections, and
a lump in my thigh. It eventually
helped clear up the remaining symptoms from my husband's flesh-eating
infection after he was forced to submit to antibiotic treatment
which made a mess of it. There was much more, gallbladder
problems in 1999, adrenal
deficiency 2001, injury in 2002, arthritis,
diabetes, and other issues between
2003-2012, including glaucoma--cured.

CITRIS PECTIN-STOP METASTASIS, PROSTATE CANCER
Citrus Pectin: Stop Metastasis
METASTASIS! ...Writes Dr. David G. Williams,
the well-known international researcher of natural treatments, in his
"This Pill Stops Prostate Cancer Dead In Its Tracks!"
Dr. Williams tells us in his inimitable style what many other medical
experts are quietly stating: Modified Citrus Pectin, the new anti-metastasis
substance developed by Dr. Kenneth Pienta of Wayne State University Medical
School, is capable of preventing metastasis in prostate cancer.
This compound is entirely benign. It is a non-toxic natural product without
any harmful side effects. In both animal and human studies it has been
shown to be very effective in preventing metastasis.
Pectin is a complex carbohydrate molecule found in most plants but especially
citrus fruit. Pectin is used in making jellies and is an ingredient in
some antidiarrhea medicines. The long-chain molecule found in grocery
store pectin is not absorbed by the body. Modified Citrus Pectin is made
from shorter molecular chains and is readily absorbed from the intestinal
Modified Citrus Pectin
fights the spread of cancer by preventing or inhibiting metastases.
MCP is sticky, which
is why pectin is used in making jellies. It turns out that cancer cells
are particularly susceptible to having Modified Citrus Pectin attach to
them because of the nature of their cell membranes. Once the Modified
Citrus Pectin has attached itself to the cancer cells floating in the
blood stream, the cancer cells become coated and unable to attach themselves
to the lining of blood vessels or other potential metastatic sites. This
process can only occur in the bloodstream, hence the importance of allowing
the short chained pectin to be absorbed by the body.
Studies in humans
are now verifying the effectiveness of this substance. One researcher
said that it appears to slow the PSA doubling time in prostate cancer
patients. An independent clinic reported, "of nine individuals without
metastasis at the beginning of the recorded period, six had not metastasis
during the 18 month period...none had metastatic site development after
months consuming modified citrus pectin."
According to one distributing
company, Natural Health Consultants, the dose is 15 grams per day. Stirring
briskly, dissolve 2 level teaspoonfuls of powder in water, juice, or other
liquid drink 3 times daily or as directed by a physician. The capsules
at NHC are 500 mg and their recommended dose as a dietary supplement is
3 to 6 capsules per day, though this may be inadequate for its anti metastatic
The following is an
abstract from an article on the anti-metastatic efficacy of Modified Citrus
A New Approach to Metastatic Cancer Prevention: Modified Citrus Pectin
(MCP), A Unique Pectin that Blocks Cell Surface Lectins
by Parris M. Kidd,
Citrus pectin (CP)
is a commercially available, water-soluble fiber with proven health benefits.
The branching polysaccharide structure of CP can be altered to produce
a lower molecular weight, galactose-rich, modified citrus pectin (MCP)
which has unique properties. Specifically, MCP, but not CP, might help
retard cancer metastasis by combining with an array of galactose-specific
proteins on the cancer cell surface called galectins (for galactose-specific
lectins). As with many human cancer cell lines that have been studied,
the potentially metastatic B16-F1 (mouse melanoma) and MLL (rat prostate)
cells carry galectins, cell surface proteins that bind to galactose on
neighboring cancer cells and oligosaccharides on the host cell surface.
MCP inhibits metastasis by the cells in the mouse and the rat, respectively.
Unlike the much larger CP polysaccharide, galactose-rich MCP may be small
enough to access and bind
tightly with galectins on the cancer cell surface, saturating the galactose
binding sites of the cancer cell lectins, and thereby inhibiting both
aggregation of tumor cells and adhesion to normal cells. Thus deprived
of adhesion, the cancer cells fail to metastasize. Undeniably, important
gaps still exist in the current understanding of MCP's clinical efficacy
and its mode(s) of action. But MCP's apparent safety and proven anti-metastatic
action, and the lack of proven therapies against metastasis, together
may justify its inclusion into comprehensive orthomolecular anticancer
regimens. (Alt Med Rev 1996;1:4-10.)
In animal studies
modified citrus pectin inhibited spontaneous pulmonary
metastases. The ability of cells to metastasize appears to be related,
in part, to the cohesiveness between cells. In other words, for a tumor
to spread it may require a clump of cells rather than a single cell or
a few cells together. Cellular interactions are mediated by a carbohydrate-binding
protein at the cell surface called galectin-3. In human studies there
is a correlation between the level of galectin expression and tumor stage.
This has been found in human colorectal, gastric and thyroid cancers.
In agarose cell cultures, anti-galectin monoclonal antibodies inhibit
the growth of tumor cells (Raz et al, Cancer Metastasis Rev 6:433-452,1987).
Citrus pectin is a natural fiber, found in the 'pulp' of oranges and grapefruits.
Dr. Pienta developed an acid process to break down the pectin into microscopic
pieces that are small enough to be absorbed into the bloodstream directly.
Once having entered the bloodstream the 'modified' pectin attaches itself
to tumor cells and prevents them from metastasis.
There have not been enough controlled human studies with MCP for mainstream
medicine to accept it as an anti-cancer treatment. Should you consider
it for yourself? Says Dr. Williams: "Since this modified citrus pectin
has no ill effects, and you can take it with a glass of water, I wouldn't
hesitate to use it now, especially if I were faced with an aggressive
This product doesn't kill tumors, it doesn't shrink them, or prevent them
from growing. However, what it does according to all the available reports,
is equally important: it prevents cancer from spreading in the body.
