Alternative Therapies for Pancreatic Cancer
Alternative medicine, classified under the term complementary therapies, is defined as therapeutic practices which are not currently considered an integral part of conventional medical practice. They may lack biomedical explanations but as they become better researched some, such as physical therapy, diet, and acupuncture, become widely accepted whereas others, such as humors or radium therapy, quietly fade away. Therapies are termed as Complementary when used in addition to conventional treatments and as Alternative when used instead of conventional treatment.
Alternative therapies include, but are not limited to the following disciplines: folk medicine, herbal medicine, diet fads, homeopathy, faith healing, new age healing, chiropractic, acupuncture, naturopathy, massage, and music therapy.
Some professionals do not consider alternative therapy at all, other believe that alternative medicine should be considered a supplement to - not a replacement for - traditional medicine.
When reviewing alternative approaches for cancer treatment, be skeptical, but open-minded. Although anecdotal evidence may be valid, look for scientific evidence that a procedure works. Unfortunately, many unorthodox therapies have not been subjected to rigorous scientific testing - even though they might be effective in certain instances. In many cases, business and financial considerations do impede the development of the promising technologies, which are problematic in terms of monetization for Big Pharma. The general public just does not see or hear about these cures because the FDA does not permit them to be manufactured and sold in the United States. Herbal remedies are not patentable. Unless the drugs or any chemical remedy can be patented, the big Pharmaceutical companies are not interested in the product.
When people believe a therapy will work, they will sometimes sense a significant improvement, even thou there is no scientific explanation. This phenomenon, known as the "Placebo Effect," tends to confound things, especially in alternative medicine.
In any case, before trying any new technique or alternative approach, discuss the possible side effects and ramifications with your physician or healthcare provider.
Country doctor cures cancer - with baking soda & maple syrup
That's the astonishing claim of controversial folk healer Jim Kelmun - who says his simple home remedy can stop and reverse the growth of deadly cancers. The 75-year-old former truck driver has no medical degree and authorities are demanding that he stop dispensing his "wonder drug" - or face a prison sentence.
But his loyal patients swear by the man they fondly call "Dr. Jim" - and say he's a miracle worker.
"Dr. Jim cured me of lung cancer," declares farmer Ian Rodhiuse, 64. "Those other doctors told me I was a goner and had less than six months to live.”But the doc put me on his mixture - and in a couple of months, the cancer was gone. It didn't even show up on X-rays!"
The gentle, silver-haired grandfather - who has been preparing home remedies since 1954 - says he first hit upon the miracle cure in the mid-1970s, when he was treating a family plagued by breast cancer. "There were five sisters in the family and all of them passed away from the big C by age 50 - except one," he recalls. "I asked if there was anything different in her diet. She told me she was partial to sipping maple syrup and baking soda. I figured, let me try it out on some of my other patients."
Since then, "Dr. Jim" has dispensed his mixture to more than 200 patients diagnosed with terminal cancer. Amazingly, he claims that of that number, 185 lived at least 15 more years - and nearly half enjoyed a complete remission of their disease.
"You tell me about another treatment that works that good!" he demands proudly.
Medical experts are less enthusiastic. "This man is a quack, plain and simple," blasts an official at a state medical association. "We intend to see that he is arrested for practicing medicine without a license."
Until that happens, Dr. Jim vows to keep prescribing his treatment: "I'm just going to keep on saving lives."
Dr. Jim's Miracle treatment is made with baking soda and maple syrup. The Dr. Jim's recipe is not secret and is not patented as regular medicines:
- Mix one part baking soda with three parts maple syrup in a small saucepan.
- Stir briskly.
- Heat for five minutes.
- Take one teaspoon daily, as needed.
Some scientists believe that this therapy works because the cancer cells are attracted to sugar and gulp up the maple syrup, and in the process give a free ride to the baking soda right into the cancer cell. The baking soda is like cyanide to cancer cells, because it attacks the cancer cells with a shock wave of alkalinity, which lets a lot more oxygen into the cancer cells than the cancer cell can tolerate. Cancer cells cannot continue to exist in the charisma of high levels of oxygen.
I would not list Dr. Jim’s anecdotal cancer treatment approach, if it would not be supported by certain scientific evidence. It is not widely accepted so far, but as it exists let’s review it.
Conventional medicine likes to focus on the impact of genetics as a causative agent in developing cancer, however some studies clearly indicate that genetics may not be the main cause of this widespread phenomenon, even though it may still play a certain role for some patients.
According to Dr. Tullio Simoncini and some other researchers, cancer is not a molecular disease, nor is it viral or bacterial. Instead, they argue that cancer is in fungal. Further, that at the center of every tumor, you will find a common fungus known as Candida albicans. What we refer to as a tumor, they believe, is nothing more than your body’s attempt at protecting itself from that fungus.
Several respectable scientific studies have also linked the presence of Candida with cancer, showing that anywhere between 79 to 97 percent of all cancer patients also have Candida.
Dr. Simoncini’s explanation for how this phenomenon works – how Candida can lead to deadly cancer – is that it’s a consequence of the weakening and exhaustion of your organs, and eventually your entire body, in the following stages:
- Candida roots itself in your deep connective tissue in various organs
- As a result, this evokes an organic defensive reaction as the connective tissue of your invaded organ attempts to encyst the fungin colonies through cellular hyper-production, which results in the formation of tumors
- Growths continue as the fungi spreads, both in your surrounding tissue, and remotely (aka “metastatis”). It is still always the same Candida attacking different tissues, but due to its highly adaptive qualities it is able to mutate to adapt itself to whatever environment it finds itself in, hence the various types of tumors
- Your body becomes progressively more exhausted, which allows the fungi to spread and take over more rapidly
- You die from “cancer”
Sodium bicarbonate (Baking soda) treatment
Traditional anti-fungal drugs are ineffective in treating tumors because the solid colonies can be attacked only on the surface of their volume, and after the first administrations they become resistant.
A solid infection is much more powerful than a bacterial one. That is why simple fungal infections can last forever.
Dr. Simoncini has identified the substances uniquely able to penetrate these volumetric infections: for cancer of the internal organs it is sodium bicarbonate; and the best substance to eliminate skin cancer is iodine tincture, particularly when it is spread onto the growth. There are many publications that describe the effectiveness of sodium bicarbonate on cancer, but the conclusions drawn in them are invariably wrong because they assume intracellular, rather than antifungal action.
The best way to try to eliminate a tumor is to bring it into contact with sodium bicarbonate, as closely as possible, i.e. using oral administration for the digestive tract, enemas for the rectum, douching for the vagina and uterus, intravenous injection for the lung and the brain, and inhalation for the upper airways. Breasts, lymph nodes and subcutaneous lumps can be treated with local perfusions. The internal organs can be treated with sodium bicarbonate by locating suitable catheters in the arteries (of the liver, pancreas, prostate, and limbs) or in the cavities (of the pleura or peritoneum).
It is important to treat each type of cancer with the right dosage. For a phleboclysis, 500 cc at 5% or 8.4% is required; for external administrations it is enough to taste if the solution is salty. Sometimes it is judicious to combine different administrations. For each treatment, take into consideration that tumor colonies regress between the third and fourth day and collapse between the fourth and fifth, so that a six day administration is sufficient.
A complete, effective cycle is made up of six treatment days on, and six days off, repeated four times. The most important side effects of this care system are thirst and weakness.
Acidity vs. Alkalinity
Interesting is that completely different scientific approach draws the same conclusion that baking soda might be a very positive component in the diet to fight or even prevent the cancer.
This approach comes from organic chemistry, claiming that alkali solutions (pH over 7.0) tend to absorb oxygen, while acids (pH under 7.0) tend to expel oxygen. For example, a mild alkali solution can absorb over 100 times as much oxygen as a mild acid solution. Therefore, when the body becomes acidic by dropping below pH 7.0 (note: all body fluids, except for stomach and urine, are supposed to be mildly alkaline at pH 7.4), oxygen is driven out of the body and, according to Nobel Prize winner Otto Warburg, thereby inducing Cancer. Stomach fluids must remain acidic to digest food and urine must remain acidic to remove wastes from the body. Blood is the exception. Blood must always remain at an alkaline pH 7.4 so that it can retain its oxygen. When adequate mineral consumption is in the diet, the blood is supplied the crucial minerals required to maintain an alkaline pH of 7.4.
However, when insufficient mineral consumption is in the diet, the body is forced to borrow crucial minerals, such as calcium, from the saliva, spinal fluids, kidneys, liver, etc., in order to maintain the blood at pH 7.4. This causes the de-mineralized fluids and organs to become acidic and therefore anaerobic, thus inducing not only cancer, but a host of other degenerative diseases, such as heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, lupus, etc.
And here comes our baking soda, which medical use now for wide public is limited to Sodium bicarbonate is used mostly in form of antacid taken orally to treat acid indigestion and heartburn. Supporters of this approach recommend taking 1/2 teaspoon of dissolved baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) before bed each evening or as needed to make the body become more alkaline. If you plan to follow this advice, make sure that all the baking soda is dissolved before drinking.
