Excerpt out of Alternative Cancer Remedies by Vance Ferrell
“SORTING OUT THE SYSTEMS
This page represents the opinion of the author as to what may possibly be the best method for medical researchers to produce regression of malignancies. That does not mean it is actually the best, nor that anyone other than a medical expert should use it.
Read again the warnings, given at the beginning of this book, against self-therapy. This book is particularly written for researchers; and, throughout it, the need for additional research has been indicated, along with a wealth of fields of study which need to be explored or expanded on.
But research into individual herbs, chemicals, or extracts is not really the full solution to the cancer problem. It is obvious that an overall change in one’s way of life is required in order to experience fullest success in ridding the cancer curse from the body.
Researchers, I appeal to you: Carry out testing on broad areas of change, not just microcosms here and there! We are past that point.
There is enough nutritional, and other, data in hand, to formulate a very effective overall program! However, so much information has been included in this book, that it can appear quite daunting to put it together into a carefully balanced, systematic whole. So, in this section we will overview and summarize many of the areas, covering the best of the findings.
First, let us categorize the cancer therapies discussed in Parts Two to Four:
Koch used a chemical injection to change toxins into antitoxins. He also used a very strict diet. Evers also used the Koch treatment.
Revici used chemicals to correct lipid/fatty acids and pH balance.Sheridan used a chemical to inhibit cancer respiration.
Blumer used chelation chemicals.Naessens used chemicals for leukemia. He also injected a camphor nitrogen compound into the lymph system.
Gold used hydrazine sulphate Livingston used a vaccine to kill cancer bacteria, along with nutrition and lifestyle changes. Rosenow used hydrogen peroxide.
Gregory used an antibiotic to kill cancer microorganisms. He also used major diet changes.
Glover used a serum from horse blood. Durovic and Ivy used a growth-control extract from horses
Lawrence used a factor in urine.Danopoulos used urea from urine.Burzynski used factors synthesized from human urine. Burton used a factor extracted from mouse blood.Lane and Evers used shark cartilage.
Lincoln used parasitic viruses (bacteriophages) to feed on, and destroy, cancer causing microorganisms.
Beard used pancreatic enzymes. Coffey and Humber used adrenal cortex extract from sheep.Wachtel used posterior pituitary extract.Beale and Koroljow used insulin.
FEVER THERAPY (HYPERTHERMIA)
Coley, Koch, Issels, and Gerson used fever therapy. Coley’s excitement agent was strep germs, Koch’s was tissue thrombin,Gerson’s was hot water.
Koch, Evers, Issels, Sweet, and Gerson used oxygen therapy (note Warburg’s theory).
Lambe and Blake used unknown herbal mixtures. Fell and Pattison, each used a single herb (possibly the same one), plus zinc choride. As reported in Lancet and elsewhere, some used comfrey, plus other herbs. Evans used an unknown herbal formula, accompanied by prayer. Hoxsey used a 14-herb formula, which we now know.Caisse used 4 herbs, which we now know.Santi used pau d’arco.Hajito used European mistletoe.Farr, Smart, and Hogle used chaparral leaves and stems.Montagna used 9 primary and 14 secondary herbs.Winters used 3 herbs.
Pauling and Cameron used vitamin C, plus nutritional and lifestyle changes.Newbold used vitamin A and beta-carotene.Livingston used abscisic acid (probably avitamin) in food to control cancer.Gerson used niacin and vitamin C.Kneki used vitamin E.Karmali used omega-3.
Schrauzer used selenium.Asai used germanium-132..Siris used clodronate, a variant of calcium.Ross used a mixture of potassium citrate,phosphate, and iodide.Gerson used a mixture of potassium gluconate,acetate, and phosphate along with Lugol’s solution for idiodine.
Drosnes and Lazenby used a fresh extract of whole wheat.Krebs, Sr., Krebs, Jr., Richardson, Evers, and others used a purified extract from apricot kernels. Richardson, Kowan, and Contreras added major nutritional changes.
Bell used a careful vegetarian diet and avoided constipation. Bulkley and Chase used a careful diet, plus enemas.Wigmore used the juice of fresh, young wheat grass, plus a careful diet.Kelley used fresh fruits, vegetables, and almonds, along with vitamin-mineral supplements.Issels used major nutritional changes, emphasizing organic foods, along with life changes and the elimination of toxicsubstances,such as amalgam.Gerson used juice therapy, a strict diet, plus a variety of other factors (enemas, potassium iodide, etc.).
Some researchers have developed a wide-ranging anti-cancer program. This would include Bulkley, Chase, Kloss, Evers, some laetrile physicians,and the Gerson Institute.
WHAT IS THE BEST APPROACH?
There are so many cancer treatment methods,that it almost bewilders the mind. A researcher might wonder where to start, what to do.
Certain principles need to be kept in mind:
1 – Use no method which is poisonous.
2 – Use substances and techniques which people can use at home.
3 – Use a rounded approach which covers all needed aspects.
4 – Use a method which has shown itself,for years, to be a proven method.It is too late to spend time experimenting with new things, all the while that people are dying all over the world! There are enough methods which have been shown to work; let us focus on the best of them.
Researchers, some of your patients will prefer to avoid all the problems and just continue on as they are—but continuing to do whatever they have done in the past is what gave them the cancer! Some will want to obtain orthodox therapy.
You will need to explain to them that there are alternative ways to treat cancer which are far more effective. In view of the large number of possible methods,where should the researchers focus their attention? If each researcher were to ask himself the question, “What would I do if I suddenly learned I had an advanced case of cancer?”— he would respond,“I would want to be treated by the therapy which, historically, has had the highest rate of success!”
In Part Four of this book, we discovered that,over a period of more than 70 years, the Gerson therapy has been clinically developed to its present state, and that it has the highest five year survival rate.Few other treatments have had the opportunity of over a half century of continued improvement. In addition, it is an eclectic program, borrowing the best from nutrition and other fields. It is also one of the very few which uses a broad nutritional program, including fresh juices—and it is the only one which includes a systematic program to cleanse the liver and hasten excretion of toxins.The current costs at the Gerson Institute would be about $5,000 a week for the cancer sufferer and a helper he would bring with him (to prepare the juices, etc.). That includes all standard charges, including the food; but it does not include other services, such as labwork or procedures (hyperbaric chamber, laetrile, etc.). It is requested that the patient be there at least three weeks, with a one-week minimum.
Fortunately, the Gerson Institute has explained their methods in two books, so poorer individualscan take the therapy at home.Medical researchers, the Gerson therapy is the best for your patients—all your patients—for they will generally have only one chance at a therapy, before dying.
To summarize it again:
1 – It has succeeded for half a century.
2 – It has the highest rate of long-term success.
3 – It has repeatedly been improved.
4 – It is the only known therapy which provides a rounded approach to getting rid of cancer:
(1) – It provides strong nourishment to strengthen a person’s body and organs—through juices, food, potassium, iodine, niacin,etc.
(2) – It weakens the cancer tissue, and dissolves it—through laetrile, Essiac, Pau d’arco, and heat therapy.
(3) – Of very great importance, it provides a means of accelerating the discharge of toxins from the body, toxins stirred up by the entire program and the gradual dissolution of the cancer site—through special enemas, and castoroil. It is this thorough approach which is so crucial. It is not enough to kill the tumor; it must be removed from the body. It is not enough to do both; the entire body must be nourished back to a strong, healthy condition.The cancer tissue must be attacked, reduced,and dissolved—without injuring surrounding normal tissue.
The cancer patient generally dies from liver overload (hepatic coma), not from the cancer. So much toxins have been sent to the liver to be processed and discharged out through the bowels, that the liver collapses under the burden. Vigorous measures to discharge the toxins from the liver, through the bile, must be carried out.
The blood stream, organs, and tissues must be built up, and major diet and lifesytle changes must be made—or the cancer will later return. The Gerson therapy also makes use of other worthwhile methods, as well: iodine, oxygen, potassium,heat therapy, laetrile, Essiac, Pau d’arco,and selective vitamin therapy.
Health researchers, the people need education;they need instruction, so they can henceforth care for themselves and help still others.There simply are not enough physicians available for all the people suffering from disease.In addition, the costs of medical treatment in the hospitals keeps skyrocketing, due to hightech equipment and high-priced drugs and surgery.
The only solution is to teach the people how to take care of themselves.
Clinicians, you would need to instruct each patient to order a copy of A Gerson Primer, by the staff of the Gerson Institute (currently $19.95).Also helpful is A Cancer Therapy, by Max Gerson (currently $19.95). In the latter book, tell him to read 187-248 and 391-422; and explain that the actual program is summarized on 235-248.In the Primer, the patient will find the entire program, including information not found in Cancer Therapy (such as more detailed instruction on how to do the program at home).
WHAT WOULD I DO IF I HAD CANCER?
This present book has so much informationon the subject, that it is difficult to know where to begin. Fortunately, the present writer has a fair understanding of what is in this book, since hehas just finished writing it.
So, as a help to the researchers, it might be well if I said how I would use this book to protect myself from contracting cancer,—and what information I would use in this book if I discovered that I had it!Perhaps this section will spur researchers in their work. It would be well if medical researchers paused to think what they would do if they had cancer! Such an approach might turn them down a new, more practical pathway of investigation.I do not have cancer; but, according to the statistics,there is one chance in three that I will contract it, and one chance in four that I will die of it.
There is also clear evidence that, if I live and eat very carefully, I am far less likely to ever experience malignancies.Please understand, the following statements represent the opinion of the present writer. They may contain many errors of judgment, and they are not provided for self-diagnosis or treatment by laymen. They are spurs to investigation, and are not for anyone to follow!
In order to prevent cancer from developing,I would carefully read through Part One (pp.16-43) of this book. I would need to begin a better way of life. Diet is important; but exercise outdoors,adequate rest, and other factors are equally important. A peaceful, abiding trust in God is crucial to success. I would want to make the Bible promises in Part One my own (pp. 31-32).
Skin cancers can begin all through adult life. If I found that I had skin cancer, I would crush a small piece of garlic and place it on the colored area alone, with a little tissue and tape over it. I would change this every evening and morning. In about 3 or 4 days, I have good reason to believe that it would have sloughed off. (I have already successfully done it.)
If I thought that I might have a more serious cancer, I would begin praying even harder than before. One of the things I would have to first decide is how I might ascertain if I really had such a malignancy.In my case, I would choose not to have a biopsy. That would require cutting into the tumor,which would be a very unwise thing to do! The tumor could begin metastasizing. That is a medical word for “spreading.” I would not want that to happen! Instead, I would want it to remain self contained until I could devise ways to shrink it down and eliminate it.
It might be that I knew I had a cancer without further testing. Yet, if tests are needed, safer tests are available. If I wanted to have a cancer test done, I could turn to pages 180-183, and carefully read the information. One or more of these tests may reveal if I have cancer developing in my body, even though I have no outward evidence of it. Let us say that I have discovered that I do,indeed, have a cancer. Well, that is just fine.Now I have work to do! —You might say, “What a crazy attitude to have!” Ah, but it is exactly the best attitude for me to have. If I become discouraged and depressed, the general health of my entire body will begin spiraling downward; and that is not solving anything.
Instead, I will be hopeful and confident that the best will come, whatever it may be. Accompanied by prayer and trust in God, I set to work to solve this problem. I have spent a lifetime solving problems, and this is just another one to tackle.After that, there will be many more before I die.Problems can be an adventure, if you approach them in the right way.
The next question is What should I do about it?
• I can ignore it and hope for the best.
• I can take one of the three orthodox treatments (surgery, chemotherapy, or radiation).
• I can go to an alternative cancer clinic or hospital.
• I can stay home and treat it myself.
First, I am not going to ignore the matter. That would always be a foolish decision.
Second, I choose not to undergo orthodox treatments. I am an adult and have the legal right to take the orthodox treatment, refuse it, take an alternative therapy, or treat myself. For reasons cited in the section on “Authorized Treatments”(pp. 175-179), I choose not to take the orthodox approach, in spite of what my friends and relatives may tell me. I am happy in my decision, for I believe I have made a good one. I will not be dissuaded.
Next, I have to decide whether to go to an alternative therapy clinic or treat myself at home. In order to determine that, first, I might wish to read again through portions of this book. I need to carefully think through this. There is a lot of information there, yet many of those therapies are no longer available.Some of the most important material is marked in bold print in the table of contents (pp. 3-7). I would do well to look up each item in the table of contents which is in bold printand carefully read it again, especially those in Parts 2 through 6 (pp. 44-166).
At this point, I am still trying to decide whether to treat myself at home or go to a clinic—and which one I might enter.Perhaps I might wish to contact an alternate therapy referral center. Over the past several decades, a number of individuals have banded together and formed organizations which provide information on alternate cancer therapies to whoever wants it (pp. 188-189). People generally became involved in such groups because of orthodox treatment tragedies in the lives of their loved ones or surprising success at an alternative cancer clinic. I can phone one or more of those organizations and see what they have to say, while continuing to weigh my options. But, instead, I turn to the clinic addresses listed in this book, for a number of currently available therapies. Those addresses are listed both at the end of their respective chapters, and also in the therapies section at the back of the book (pp. 188-189). Sixteen clinics are listed there.
In considering a clinic decision, I am especially interested in finding one which uses natural remedies rather than chemicals, and one which has a broad range of lifestyle corrections. I wish the Chase (pp. 59-63) and Bulkley (pp. 47-48) clinics were still open, but they are not.Yet, of those clinic therapies currently available,in my view only two fit the category of systematized nutrition: The laetrile method (pp.117-129) and Gerson method (pp. 142-156).
Both include a broad range of changes.Checking this out more closely, I find that the Gerson treatment is more scientifically detailed,includes both in-depth nutrition, as well as careful body and liver cleansing as the tumor breaks up. The Gerson method also has the longest record of clinical experimentation and improvement (from 1907 to 1959, and 1977 to the present time—over 70 years.
Reading once again the section entitled,“Supplement – Gerson Therapy: Introduction,” on pp. 131-134, which summarizes the benefits of the Gerson method, I decide that the Gerson Institute clinic in the Tijuana suburbs (Hospital Meridien) is the one I will go to. I do not particularly like some of the substances I might receive there, but I will soon be dying of cancer if I do not obtain thorough help somewhere! The dietetic problems at Gerson are better than letting people cut me up or fill me with chemical poisons.
I am also deeply impressed by the fact that the Gerson Clinic has a better long-term survival record than the laetrile clinics.“By application of these principles, the Gerson Therapy is able to achieve almost routine recovery—90% or better—from early to intermediate cancer. When cancer becomes incurable by orthodox methods (i.e., involves the liver or pancreas or is metastasized inside the body),about 50% recoveries can be achieved by the Gerson method.
“Norman Fritz gives laetrile as an example of other good nontoxic therapies. It has a good short-term response—relief from pain, remission of malignancy, improvement in appetite and sense of well-being or increase in strength—in 70% or 80% of cancer cases. The long-term recovery rate, however, is about 15% or less. In most cases degeneration progresses to where the laetrile is no longer sufficient. In some cases other nontoxic therapies may be constructively combined with the Gerson Therapy.
“The other big advantage of the Gerson Therapy is that it usually heals the body of all the degenerative diseases rather than just healingcancer. Many cancer patients are suffering from other degenerative conditions also—arthritis, heart conditions, diabetes, etc.”—Cancer News Journal, 1983 Update.
Phoning the Gerson Institute number in Bonita, California (619-585-7600; fax 619-585-7610), they mail me some literature on their program. Reading it, I learn still more. I find that I will have to take someone with me to the hospital to prepare my juices, etc., and it will, at the present time, cost about $5,000 a week to be at Hospital Meridien; for cancer, they prefer that I be there a minimum of three weeks.
Unfortunately, I am not sure if I can get someone to go with me; and, when I sit down and count my pennies, I find I do not have enough to go there! This is unfortunate, for obviously it would be a fantastic educational program! Both I, and the person accompanying me, would learn all the ins and outs of the ongoing, daily program.
The brochure says that my medical insurancepolicy might cover it, and that I should contact“American Metabolics at 619-425-4625” in Bonita,California, to ascertain that. But then I have no medical insurance either.
Next I learn that all the basic Gerson daily treatment information is given in the two Gerson books: A Cancer Therapy: Results of Fifty Cases,by Max Gerson, and The Gerson Primer, by the Gerson Institute. The Primer is the book they give every patient who goes there; it explains what their procedure! Turning to the back of the brochure they have sent me, I find both books listed; they are $19.95 each. Well, I do not have $15,000 for a three-week stay, but I do have $40.00. So I order the books.
While waiting for them to arrive, I do more checking. Perhaps I live alone, am in terrible shape, and have no one to help me with the Gerson treatments. Perhaps I really do not want to do all the work involved, and imagine I can get by on a simpler program.
So, once again, I begin browsing. In the present book, Parts One (pp. 16-43) lists over 200 cancer preventive do’s and don’ts. I have to make sure I am doing all that. Doing that alone will be a good improvement. Still thinking that I may be able to do something different than Gerson, next, I look at Parts Two (pp. 44-116), Four (pp. 130-141), and Six (pp. 157-166). There I find that everything mentionedfalls into one or the other of several categories:
1 – Treatment methods which are no longer available.
2 – Treatment methods which, for one reason or another, are not accessible by me.
3 – Treatment methods which involved diet alone.
4 – Treatment methods which involved herbal formulas.
5 – Treatment methods which are narrowed, but which I can order by mail.
6 – Treatment methods which are narrowed in their scope, require going a clinic, and are also expensive.
(1-2) – The first two are out.
(3) – As for the dietetic-type therapies: The only dietetic programs outlined to any extent are those of Bulkley (pp. 47-48), Chase (pp. 59-64), and certain physicians using laetrile (pp. 126-129),—plus, of course, the extensive information in the two Gerson books which will soon arrive in the mail. I do not want to forget important factors, such as beta-carotene (pp. 82-84), vitamin C (pp.86-89), selenium (pp. 98-100), germanium-132 (pp. 106-107), and omega-3 (pp. 107-108).
(4) – Then there are the herbal formula therapies: I find that, while they are listed throughout the book, they are all brought together on 158- 166. Several very important herbs are Essiac (pp.130-141, 158, 161-166), pau d’arco (p. 81),chaparral (pp. 84-91), and mistletoe (pp. 94-95). I learn that pau d’arco is easier to take, yet contains the same essential remedial chemical in chaparral, I also discover that the Essiac formula is the most proven herbal formula against cancer in the 20th century! I am deeply impressed with its track record. Fortunately, it is now easily obtainable and can be taken orally.
(5) – Some therapies involve materials which I can order by mail, including herbs, nutrients, and oral hydrogen peroxide.
If I decide not to take the Gerson therapy at home, I can patch together the best of what is available of the above-named special nutrients and herbs, along with what I wish to pick and choose from the book, the Gerson Primer.
Or, if I wish, I can scrape together thousands of dollars and go to one of the non- Gerson clinics:
(6) – Narrowed clinic treatments which are still available include the laetrile clinics (Richardson’s in Albany, CA, Contreras’ in Tijuana, or Navarro’s in Manila) (pp. 118-129), Revici’s chemicals (pp. 66-67), Burton’s four blood proteins (pp. 77-79), Naessens’ camphor nitrogen compound (pp. 81-82), Gold’s hydrazine sulphate (pp. 91-94), Siris’ clodronate (pp.101-102), Lane’s cartilage (p. 102), the hydrogenperoxide injections (pp. 103-105), Issels nutritional program (pp. 102-103), and Burzynski’s urine substances (pp. 105-106). Addresses of all of these are available in the articles (and also at the back of the book on pp. 188-190).
But I do not have the money to go to any clinics, Gerson’s or otherwise. I will surely miss the excellent training and initial testing I would especially have received at the Gerson hospital.So I will have to do whatever I can at home.If I have a friend to help me, that will be wonderful.So I must decide whether to fully go on the Gerson therapy or group together a patchwork collection of other therapies. Let me think out loud about what I might do:
1 – All of the various therapies listed in Parts Two to Six are concerned with, in some way, destroying the cancer tissue.
2 – A few are concerned about changing the way of life, so the malignancy will not only be eliminated but is not likely to return.
3 – But the Gerson therapy is also deeply concerned also about expelling the broken down cancer tissue from the system. It alone has a systematic way of doing that.On pages 130-141, 158, and especially on pp. 161-165, I discovered that the Essiac formula does both also. Yet the Gerson therapy may be safer, more thorough, and have better long-term results. It is more than taking some pills; it is about a drastic change in living—primarily keyed to taking vegetable and fruit juices, and eating very nourishing food.
If I decide to go on the Gerson nutritionprogram, for a year and a half, or two years (orlonger if I wish), it will primarily require:
• Making and drinking 13 glasses of freshly prepared juices everyday. These are vegetable juices (primarily carrot), fruit juices (primarily apple), and green leaf juice.
• Preparing and eating some vegetables which are simmered in little water until well done.
• Eating some raw vegetables, grated if necessary.
• Preparing and eating a vegetable soup.
• Taking several supplements, including iodine for the thyroid and hydrochloric acid for the stomach,—but especially potassium for the cells.
Eliminating the use of all oils, except flaxseed oil is important. The nutritional program rebuilds the system and strengthens it to attack and begin destroying the cancer tissue. I must not (not) fast when I have cancer! I must feed the undernourished body, so it can destroy that cancer!
If I decide to go on part or all of the Gerson cleansing program, it is extremely important that the waste substances, cast off by the body at this time, are being expelled. Therefore:
• I must take low enemas (Gerson found that high enemas or colonics should not be taken, for they wash out certain minerals from the bowels).The frequency of enemas should be increasedwhen evidence of toxicity buildup occurs. This will be indicated by headaches, fever, nausea, intestinal spasms, and drowsiness. If they are not present, less enemas are needed.
At some point, I would need to decide if I am going to remain on a mild flushing program or go on a more intensive one. If I choose to remain on a slower ejection of toxins, I will take the simple enemas. I can also take Essiac everyday, since this will definitely aid the expulsion process (see pp. 161-165 for the reasons why it helps the body do that).
Or I can choose to go on the faster flushing program, used by Gerson. How can I know which I need? First, how advanced is the cancer? If it is in the early stages, I may not need the faster flushing.
Second, is there pain? The pain is primarily caused by the need to flush out toxins! The Gerson enemas remarkably stop those pains,because it flushes out those accumulating poisons.
Individuals with an advanced tumor have died because they did not remain on the special Gerson enemas, which so rapidly flush toxins out of the liver.
Well, what is the Gerson faster-flushing method? It involves the use of coffee enemas.These cause signals to go to the bile ducts, and they open up wide. The toxins from the dissolving tumors are sent through the bloodstream to the liver to be discharged through the gallbladder into the bowel. But the liver can only work so fast. A toxic overload of the liver causes toxins to back up throughout the body and pain is felt. Too much overload and the liver stops functioning—and this is called hepatic coma.
People die, not from cancer, but either from hepatic coma or from cachexia, which is general starvation also due to toxic overload in the liver.
Therefore, it is obviously of extreme importance that the body and the liver be cleansed of those toxins, which are being cast off by the system!
It is a life and death matter.The Gerson faster-flush method uses:
• Coffee enemas, for the most rapid flushing of the liver.
• Additional nutrients to replace minerals and vitamins lost from the liver during this time. Unfortunately, that includes liver extract.
• Because a faster flush is in progress, castor oil is needed to help clean bile out of the stomach and help push the liver-ejected toxins out of the bowels.
• Chamomile tea and peppermint tea are also helpful.
Perhaps my condition is such that I do not need the faster-flush. But if I am in pain and deteriorating, I had best carefully rethink my situation.In addition to whatever level of the Gerson therapy I might go on, I can also do some other things which will in no wise interfere with the therapy, but actually help improve the situation.
I can take:
• The Essiac formula. That is the only herb formula I would take, unless I chose to add a little echinacea (and possibly a very small amount of barberry) to it (see pp. 161-165). After writing this book, I have the most respect for Essiac and the Gerson therapy. They have the longest and best track records.
• Vitamin C.
• Pau d’arco. This contains the same cancerfighting chemical that is in chaparral, but without the side effects of chaparral.
• Fever therapy. Details are given in the Gerson Primer, 11 (4th edition; p. 13 in the 3rd); I must read it carefully before attempting to do this!
• Poultices, etc., over surface, or near-surface,tumors.
• I can also take certain vitamin supplements;but, if I have cancer, certain other ones should be avoided—since they excite the already overworked liver too much.
• Niacin is excellent.
• Vitamin C, of course, is also.
• According to Gerson, I must avoid the use of Vitamins A, E, most B complex, and B6. However,niacin (B3) is especially useful. Both A and E are picked up by the cancer cells and energize those cells. (In contrast, pro-vitamin A, which is beta-carotene is excellent to use.)
I must recognize that, once I begin the program,I may have to remain on portions of it for the remainder of my life. There is the very real danger that a later relapse could be irreversible, and death would follow. This does happen!
I may eventually reduce the number of juices taken daily, and drop the enemas, etc. But I must remain on the preventive points listed in Part One of this book.
Well, that is what I would do if I had cancer.My ideas may well be full of mistakes, for everythinghuman generally is. It is merely my opinionof what I would do, to care for myself.It is hoped that this brief overview may help cancer researchers better focus their work on practical areas of treatment which the people need.
Millions out there are dying, awaiting official word that natural remedies are useful. —We are looking to you, the laboratory and clinical researchers of the Western world, for help!
Common folk, happening upon this book,might inquire, “What should I do if I contract cancer?” That is not for me to say; I can only relate what I would do if I had a malignancy. I have a legal right to select any therapy which appeals to me. You have the same right. Therefore, clinic addresses are listed at the back of the book. In nearly every instance, you will receive treatment under the supervision of an M.D. physician. Or you may prefer to go to your local hospital, there to receive the orthodox treatments. Fortunately,in this book there is now available a wealth of preventive information (Part One), along with the treatment discoveries and methods developed by many experts in the field (Parts Two to Five). I would direct you to them and to their clinics.
May God bless and keep you. I hope we can meet someday in heaven.

How to live longer
A researcher in Germany discovered that how you deal with problems can affect how long you will live and, to some extent, how you may die!
In this life, each individual is continually confronted by problems—difficulties in relation to persons, situations,and goals. Some of these problems can be quite large. Yet the attitude the person takes toward his problems can,literally, finish him off.
What you are about to read can affect your entire life, so you will want to consider it carefully; recognize it as good advice and, not only start doing it, but also sharing it with your friends and loved ones.
Ronald Grossarth-Maticek, a Yugoslavian oncologist, and his students were given access to mortality data in Heidelberg, Germany. They carefully studied thousands of deaths, read through autopsy reports, and interviewed relative of the deceased. He discovered that a person’s attitude greatly affects his life span—and in special ways.
There are four methods of dealing with problems. The European researcher dealt with the first three. Other research studies reveal there is also a fourth. Here they are:
Type 1 – The first way of dealing with a problem is to let it get you down. The key words are “hopeless/helpless.”This person is unable to solve problems relating to others, situations, or goals. If relationships are sour, circumstances unfavorable, and goals seemingly unachievable, he sinks into a depression, characterized by feelings of helplessness and hopelessness. This person seems unable to change his negative view of life. He consistently holds on to depression as a habit to run into and hide.
The coronary reports revealed the fact that the person choosing this type of behavior is highly prone to cancer.
Type 2 – The second way of dealing with a problem is to blow up. The key words are “frustrated/angry.” This person also seems unable to deal with problems in a positive way. Instead, he becomes disgusted or loses his temper. The person choosing this type of behavior is highly prone to heart disease.
Type 3 – The third way of dealing with a problem is to remain positive, and turn one’s attention to finding a new way—a different way—to tackle the problem and resolve it. The key words are “cheerful/positive.” The significant factor, of course, is the continued positive outlook.
The individual selecting this type of response to problems—tends not to get sick! That is what the interviews and coronary reports revealed. These people have the lowest incidence of disease. In fact, they have the lowest incidence of death due to all causes, including accidents.
Here we have two major killers, and many smaller ones. The solution to forestalling many of them is a change in outlook and thinking, a change in behavior.
Type 4 – There is also a fourth way of dealing with problems, which other studies have repeatedly shown to be highly beneficial to both mind and body. This method increases the positive outlook of Type 3 living, intensifies the healthful results, and makes it easier to switch from Type 1 and Type 2 to Type 3 behavior.
The fourth manner of dealing with a problem is to take it to God in prayer. Here we find a person who has chosen to accept Christ as his Saviour. He has dedicated his life to Him and, by enabling grace, seeks to obey His Written Word each day.Then when a problem arises, he takes it to God in prayer. Those who do this have found that it produces wonderful results. In some cases, a beautiful solution appears all by itself. At other times, the person will arise from prayer, greatly encouraged to press forward in a Type 3 approach: With a positive outlook, he will try a new way to solve the problem. However, there are difficulties which, unfortunately, cannot easily be solved. They would try to hang as a dead weight around the neck, year after year.
Only Type 4 living can deal effectively with such problems. A Christian can face problems more positively than others. He can cheerfully live with problems which would crush others. Yet there is something else about Type 4 living which is special: The person who puts God first in his life—will spend much of his thought and energy trying to make the lives of others happier. The person who is busy helping others will always seem to have fewer problems. He is too busy being a blessing to others to give them much attention.
What have we learned from these four types?When you have a problem, do this:
(1) Take the problem to God in prayer. Make sure you are obeying the Ten Commandments and all that He commands in His Inspired Writings.
(2) Keep positive and cheerful. If you have a personal relationship with God, you will especially be able to do this. Trust everything to Him, and believe He will work it all out for the best.
(3) Change your behavior in such a way that conditions are changed for the better. Obedience to God’s laws will greatly encourage you. Amid the problems of life, when you walk up to a wall
of difficulty, you can go through it, go around it, or go over it. Sometimes, with God’s help, the wall just disappears as you walk toward it.
Here are several additional pointers:
Just what is the problem? What new, alternative activities would produce more positive results? Think it through, and then, prayerfully, try making the changes.
Always stay on the positive. Failure should not be regarded as a reason for not trying out new types of behavior and activity. Discouragement or anger accomplish nothing.
Take it to the Lord in prayer, and arise ready to move forward positively again.
Some problems cannot be solved. Sometimes you live with them. This is when Type 4 living—walking hand-in hand with God—can provide wonderful solutions, even if unfortunately circumstances do not seem to change as quickly as they might. It can also help you live in environments which would crush others.
Choose the sunshine side of life, and problems about you will evaporate. The Christian has heaven coming; he can afford to wait patiently through the days that are dark.For him, the future is bright.
May God bless and keep you, as you try to live longer.Remember to use your longer life to help and bless others.That is why you were born into this world.
