People on other forums have requested me to post some of what i learned from treating folks with end stage cancer so here it is.

People are hungry for ways to solve our problems with cancer. On another thread Paul Wheaton mentions that 99% of cancer can healed by polycultured vegetables. When I was practicing as a chiropractor I worked with more than 100 folks with end stage cancer. 98 of them got well within 3 months. What was my method.

I work from intuition. I do not work from a program. Looking back though, it looks like the program might have been:

1. The human body is an ecosystem. When it is out of balance it can be brought back into balance. Having cancer is severe form of being out of balance. Any kind of pain is being out of balance. I saw my job as a doctor (chiropractor) to bring the body back inteo balance. Since the human body is much too complicated for me to know what that balance actually is, all I could do is read what it was telling me, where it said it needed input. I was trained in cranial sacral therapy so the electromagnetic imbalance were the signs that I read. There are many kinds of therapy that do this. I would say it is more important to use your intuition to find a therapist than the type of therapy that they practice. Or I could say it is more important how the person with the cancer responds to the therapist or the therapy than what is done to them. There is talk these days of the sweet spot. in a situation with illness, the sweet spot is the place where the universe and the individual meet.

2. Cleanse the body with green drinks made from organic greens for 1 week to 1 month. This is a method for alkalizing the body. Someone lately said to me that some cancers are based on an alkaline system and that my 2 patients may have needed acidifying. This may be true.

3. This is the life coach piece: Get people to become aware of what they love, what nurtured them and to start doing it every day. I started this process by asking folks to do one thing they loved the next day. Often if they were moms they would tell me they did something special with their kids. I would say okay tomorrow you need to do something special only for yourself. I remember when I took a workshop on how to find what my real purpose on the planet was, they said first thing that I was to write my purpose down. I got so constipated that I could do nothing through the whole workshop. People have to start small and be gently encouraged to find one small thing that nurtures them. As time went on folks were encouraged to find more things every day that would nurture them and even to earn a living doing what nurtured them. Most people are out of touch with themselves. Even when we know what we need we do something else. So good coaching, helping people to listen to themselves and do what they hear from themselves is necessary.

4. Once the system is cleansed it is important to eat a low protein diet of (as Paul would say polycultured vegetables and ( I would so no tilled, without fertilizer and without irrigation polycultured vegetables and grains. (Proteins feed the cancer – once the cancer is healed a diet of moderate protein can be started.) All bodies know how to cure themselves from cancer (or any other thing). They often do not have the nutrients that they need to do this. Alkalizing helps the microfauna of the body to work properly. As with the soil, the microfauna are key to the body ireceiving nutrients.

I had a patient with long term chronic pain. He had been a football player and his muscles were well developed. I use a fairly light touch and he did not believe that my work could possibly affect him through all those muscle layers. Would I press harder, would I twist him and make his bones “pop.” I said it would not serve him for me to do that, but I understood that he believed that he needed something else, so to please go to someone else and get it. He returned about a year later still in chronic pain. He said he could allow himself at this point to believe that my work could help. 3 months later he was out of his 30 years of pain. What we think definitely influences who can help us.

This makes it extremely difficult for those of us who believe that a logical, mental, non-emotional delivery, as most doctors have been trained to have, is necessary for their healing. Sickness if very serious after all. What if it takes levity, joy and an excitement about change to make us well.

i had one patient with a slow growing type of cancer who had been seeing alternative healers for 20 years. when she came to me i "got" that she needed black strap molasses. She asked me what that would do. i told her i did not know, but i know, but i did know that it would not harm her and it may very well help her. she took a spoonful in a glass of water 3 times a day, as well as my work on balancing her body. 3 months later the cancer was totally gone. i was somewhere 3 years later and was reading about a rare form of cancer (her kind) where they had discovered that something in black strap molasses was what the body needed.

Many years ago I had 2 friends, or maybe I should say acquaintances, who I had known for many years, who were both diagnosed with cancer the same year. They were both in their 80’s. One ate a raw foods diet. The other ate a totally macrobiotic diet. Without knowing each other, they each chose the opposite diet. The one who lived on raw foods started a macrobiotic diet. The one who lived on a macrobiotic diet started a raw food diet. Both survived and got rid of the cancer. Both ate organically. Part of what I believe worked for them is that they both exerted their will force to made big changes in their lives. Otherwise I cannot explain it.

What I do see is that we cannot go on doing what we were doing and expect different results. Cancer is probably the result of many years of a starving metabolism. A lot of cancer is said to be caused by chemicals. However those chemicals affect some people and not everyone. We expect that the people with access to good nutrition and good attitude, as well as good support, have a better chance of fighting off cancer and rebalancing their system when they do get it.

this was posted on another thread by john weiland. it is talking about how microbes from indigneous people are different from microbes of urban folks and the differences may be related to our levels of sickness. we all know about our lack of biodiversity in the plant varieites that we eat. we can talk about the value of foods grown in polyculture.

While I try to stay fairly open minded about medical treatment options, I am a bit stressed by the implications being discussed. I am saddened that it may give people, who are already under severe physical, mental, and emotional stress because of terminal cancers, a false hope and/or frustration over their treatment. I'm not saying that diet and alternative medicine lack value. Far from it since I am a firm believer in the effects of diet on health. But I do object to the false hope with claims of 98% cure rates with terminal cancers.

I am of an age where I am seeing a number of my acquaintances succumbing to cancers. Being in Hawaii where alternative medicine and nutritional treatments abound, I see plenty of dietary type treatments being made part of the overall treatment program. Sadly I report that in the past 12 years I have seen ZERO survival rate when dietary protocols were the basis for terminal cancer treatment, or even when they were added to other treatment protocols. As I said, I am a avid believer in diet benefits, but I see no I indication that it can cure cancer.

Not to insult or attack people personally, but I highly question sure rates of 98%. Personally I find the claim to be dismaying.

This is my opinion and viewpoint. For the sake of discussion and decision making, I feel that the other viewpoint needs to be voiced

Charlotte, if you practiced as a chiropractor, then you are fully aware that there are various different streams of thought among your medical peers. Medical professionals may not agree, but they respect one another's differing views. I had the same experience in veterinary medicine where there are numerous approaches to veterinary medicines that took different routes. While we didn't always agree, we agreed to disagree, so to speak.

su ba, i received this video in my inbox yesterday. it does a beautiful job of describing how the medical profession is not interested in treating the root cause of our problems but of selling us ongoing drugs, cancer is mentioned here. these people also make money from their newsletter.

Aren't chiropractic and dietician part of the medical profession?

when i went to chiropractic school chiropractors were not considered primary care physicians. they sued and won against the medical profession in an antitrust suit. however, i have been a rebel all my life. I had been on a macrobiotic farm in new hampshire where we treated our own illnesses mainly with food quite successfully. one of our people got encephalitis. the doctor came to our house. he told us that he had a 50% chance of dieing and suggested he go immediately to the hospital. we asked the obvious question which is not usually asked. what are his chances of dieing if he goes to the hospital. the doctor said 50%. we kept him at home and used potatoe and cabbage poultices on his head. a swelling grew on his head which pointed outward from the middle of his forehead. we treated him with more potatoe and cabbage. finally the point broke open, smelly yucky stuff emerged and his temperature went down and the doctor said he was clear. I was just carrying water and potatoes and cabbage not the treating person in this case.

a case where i was the primary was a dear friend cut himself with an ax. i could see the bone. i applied summer miso to his leg and bleeding stopped. there was no infection and within days he was back to work.

chiropractic school was quite rigorous for me. i remember my microbiology class. we were using the same text that the medical school used for microbiology. it was a great thick book. each chapter began with these microbes are bad and we will show you how bad they are. each chapter ended with now you see why we have to kill these microbes. i read the chapters in detail. i brought to the attention of all my classmates and my teachers that they "cultured" the microbes with sugar and protein. all they proved according to my understanding of the scientific method was that these microbes grew on sugar and protein. what that meant to me and it has held up over the 40 years since is that if you take the sugar and protein away from the body, the bad guys do not proliferate.

so i was trained in some version of "modern medicine" and it did not envelope me in its cloud.

i spent many weeks up at the University of Oregon Medical School,my chiropractic school was in Portland, to see if i could find other students who were questioning what we were being taught and i found some.

I had a friend who went to Stanford Medical School while i was in chiropractic school. we exchanged many ideas. when my mother was in the hospital after an unnecessary surgery which was the beginning of the end for her, i mentioned to my friend from Stanford that there were 17 medical errors that they made before she finally died. he said that was impossible. I wanted to sue just to teach them that everyone was not going to let them get away with this stuff, but i did not want to spend 10 years of my life in courts. 1 year later my friend from Stanford formally apologized to me. he had heard similar stories from 50 different people after outrageous medical mistakes and mismanagement of their relatives and friends cases.

in homeopathy there is a thing called a miasm. this is an overlay, mental, physical etc. that affects significant portions of the population. i believe we are inside of a miasm of the mind. we do not see out of the box. there have been many medical doctors who have seen out of the box as well as many chiropractors. some of the really influencial ones have died mysterious deaths. medicine is one of the legs of the GNP.

in india i suffered a herniated disc when falling off a motorcycle. i went to an aruvedic person not even a doctor and she put on a pack on my back for 7 days, she called it an anti-inflammatory pack. i could not drive in a car cecause of the pain, so she kept me at her home, for dollars a day. I stayed there for one week. she wanted me to stay for another week, but i did not. at the end of 3 months i had no problems with my disc.

Charlotte, I would say that if you cured 98 people with terminal cancer, you should keep doing it instead of promoting food forest in India.

so gilbert fritz, lots of people have told me this. however to me it seemed that most of the people who came to me were under a cloud and getting out of the rat race was the only way for them to be healthy and i did not want to be in a rat race trying to keep them healthy i see now that part of the root cause is what we eat and how we grow what we eat, so that is why i am working on this end of things. i cannot prescribe healthy food if there is hardly any of it growing.

Has this 98% success rate been achieved anywhere else ? Either before or after ?

For those who are interested but not medically trained.....
1- for a physician to make a diagnosis of encephalitis during a home visit is irresponsible medical practice.
2- for a physician to give a prediction of survival without any medical work up is irresponsible medical practice.
3- a subdermal abscess on the forehead is not a symptom of encephalitis. Most untreated abscesses will necrose to the point of rupture, releasing foul smelling pus. Once ruptured, the patient's fever normally disappears and they often heal in their own with no further treatment as long as the wound is kept clean.

Irresponsible medical practice is grounds for review by the board of medical examiners, if there is a complaint. A physician may be reprimanded or his/her license can be made conditional or even revoked depending upon the decision of the board.

For a medically trained person to call pus and neurotic tissue "smelly yucky stuff" I find surprising. For a medically trained person not to recognize the condition as an abscess I find incredible. For the housecall physician to say "said he was clear" and not to tell you that what the patient had was an abscess rather than encephalitis is inconceivable to me.

For a medically trained person to state that "if you take the sugar and protein away from the body, the bad guys do not proliferate" is astounding. Dramatically reducing the patient's blood glucose level and albumin amount will of course stop " the bad guys" from proliferating because the patient would be dead. Perhaps chiropractic school failed to teach that, but any diabetic knows the danger of dramatically lowering the body's "sugar" levels.

I am finding the information being presented to be less and less believable, from a medical viewpoint. I am distressed to see this sort of information being posted. I have no objection to alternative medicine or an individual's opinion. But I do take issue with misinformation or skewed information being used to present a point.

This thread has been bothering me since it was created.

Permies has a philosophy of encouraging everyone to share their viewpoints and experiences, and a policy of never saying that another member is wrong, because we want everyone to feel able to share their viewpoints and experiences in the hope that someone searching for an answer to their problems will stumble on a solution as yet undiscovered by science, take that solution, and run with it. To everyone's benefit.

On the other hand, I am very concerned that some of the viewpoints expressed in this thread will deter people from seeking out the best possible solutions. I would strongly urge anyone with cancer or any other serious medical condition to explore all methods of treatment and diagnosis, not assume that just because we allowed it to be published here that it will indeed cure their ills.

And on that note I am going to lock this thread.
