Despite the expenditure of billions of dollars, mainstream medicine’s track record for curing cancer is unfortunately dismal. Too many people have watched loved ones die miserably after suffering the terrible side effects of chemotherapy and other toxic conventional treatments, and more and more are choosing alternative methods instead.

Sydney’s mom was one such person. Sydney was a bright little girl just two years old when she was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. After a year of chemotherapy, Sydney was in remission and her parents and doctors hoped the cancer would not come back. But it did come back, and at age four Sydney’s doctors were recommending a bone marrow transplant as her only hope. However, this procedure offered a mere 5-10% chance of cure and the treatment could potentially cause severe damage to her body (or even kill her). Instead, Sydney’s mom decided to decline the conventional treatment and chose an alternative approach that was safe and non-toxic. Within just a few months, there was no sign of leukemia in little Sydney.  She is currently nine years old and still cancer-free. Sydney’s story is not uncommon as advances in alternative medicine continue to outpace conventional allopathic medicine for the treatment of chronic metabolic diseases.

So what do we mean by “alternative cancer treatments?” Any health treatment is considered alternative if it has not yet been approved by the FDA and has not yet been accepted by mainstream medicine. But many “alternatives” are scientifically based and effective treatments nevertheless.  The approach administered to Sydney is an easy-to-use liquid formula called Protocel.  This formula was developed by an American chemist who discovered a way to interfere with how cancer cells produce energy for themselves.  The approach is supported by research done by the Nobel Prize-winning scientist Otto Warburg, who proved that cancer cells primarily use anaerobic cell respiration. Protocel interferes with that type of cell respiration just enough to make anaerobic cells (cancer cells) fall apart.

The Protocel formula has been used by thousands of people to achieve recoveries from breast, prostate, lung, brain, colon, and virtually all other types of cancer. A side benefit is that many other illnesses--such as multiple sclerosis, viral infections, ulcerative colitis, and Crohn’s Disease also involve anaerobic cells.  Thus, Protocel has been used to help people with these conditions as well. Typical examples include a woman who used Protocel to cure herself of metastasized bladder cancer, only to find that all signs of her Hepatitis C infection had disappeared.  A man who saw his wife cure herself of metastasized vaginal wall cancer decided to use Protocel himself preventively, and within two weeks a psoriasis/fungal type infection that he’d had on his fingers for ten years completely cleared up.

Another powerful alternative cancer approach based on Dr. Warburg’s anaerobic principle of cancer cells is called Cesium High pH Therapy. This was developed by an American physicist named Dr. Aubrey Keith Brewer who discovered that cancer cells readily take in the mineral cesium, which then alkalizes the cancer cells to death from the inside.

Following are two real-life cases of people who chose to use cesium. A man suffering from advanced stomach cancer was told by his oncologist that his cancer was not responding to chemotherapy. His medical team said that the only thing they had left to offer him was total surgical removal of his stomach, after which they would attach his upper intestine to his esophagus. This man was not pleased with the option of trying to live without a stomach, so he declined the surgery. His wife found out about cesium and he used that instead for a complete recovery. He continues to remain cancer-free years later.

A woman with metastasized ovarian cancer was told by her doctor that chemotherapy would never get rid of all her cancer; it could only hope to control it.  As she saw her cancer gradually spreading, she finally stopped the ineffective chemotherapy and through the use of cesium became cancer-free as well.

Protocel and Cesium High pH Therapy are just two of many effective alternative methods.  In fact, my book Outsmart Your Cancer: Alternative Non-Toxic Treatments That Work  presents 12 alternative cancer treatment methods that are all backed by sound scientific documentation and impressive track records. While no approach is a “Magic Bullet” that will cure everybody, when used correctly alternative methods for cancer often provide better overall chances for long-term cure than chemotherapy or radiation.

As already mentioned, an important difference between alternative and conventional cancer treatments is that alternative methods are not officially approved by the FDA and are not prescribed by mainstream medicine.  This means you won’t hear about them from your oncologist and your health insurance company won’t reimburse you if you choose to use one. So it is left to you to educate yourself as to your true options. Another important difference is that alternative methods are always non-toxic, whereas conventional methods are virtually always toxic.

It’s the non-toxic aspect of alternative cancer treatments that is the key to why alternative methods are more effective at achieving long-term cures in many cases.  This is because a non-toxic method can be used 24/7, for as many weeks, months, or even years as it takes to get rid of all of one’s cancer. Being non-toxic, it does not hurt a person’s healthy cells or immune system, and thus allows for continual use in cooperation with the body’s own healing process.

Both chemo and radiation, on the other hand, are so toxic and so damaging to the body’s immune system they do NOT allow for continual use.  In fact, using chemo or radiation every day for months would kill the patient. So breaks in the treatment are necessary to allow the patient to recover from the treatment--and these breaks allow the cancer to recover and grow back, too! Often, the cancer grows back even more virulently because the immune system is so weakened.  This explains the vicious cycle in conventional medicine of remission and recurrence until the patient dies.

It is tragic to hear heart-breaking stories of people who bravely suffered the side effects of toxic chemotherapy or radiation only to find their cancer has spread even more extensively throughout their body. Once they find an effective alternative approach, they frequently say, “If I had known about alternative methods, I never would have done the chemo and radiation in the first place.” With 1 in 3 Americans likely to develop cancer at some point in their lifetime, and our medical system turning its back on alternative medicine, it is essential and heartening to know there are non-toxic options out there that really can work!
