The Cure for Cancer Was Discovered 84 Years Ago

An effective cure for all types of cancer could be just five to 10 years away, according to one of the world’s leading experts on the disease.

Survival rates have dramatically increased over the last five decades from an average of 24 per cent the early 1970s to about 50 per cent.

But some forms of the disease have remained extremely hard to treat – just one per cent of pancreatic cancer patients and five per cent of those with lung cancer are still alive 10 years after diagnosis.

Speaking to The Independent ahead of World Cancer Day on 4 February, Professor Karol Sikora, former head of the World Health Organisation’s cancer programme, said advances in genetics meant doctors would soon be able to prescribe drugs specifically targeted at each individual’s cancer.

He said the tumours in 100 women with breast cancer would all be unique to each individual but “understanding the molecular cogs that make cancer cells different to normal cells and therefore developing drugs personalised to the cancer” would allow “personalised, precision medicine”.

“What it would do is suppress the cancer and convert cancer into a long-term chronic disease,” Professor Sikora said.

“Most patients with cancer tend to be in their 50s or 60s. If they live another 20 or 30 years, they would effectively live a normal lifespan.”

Professor Sikora suggested this medical revolution would happened “in the next five to 10 years”.

The main cause of cancer has been detected decades ago (1923). Very few people around the world know about it, because the truth is hidden by the pharmaceutical and food industries.

German scientist Otto Heinrich Warburg received Nobel Prize for find the root cause of cancer back in 1931.

The scientist found that cancer is the result of anti-physiological effect and anti-physiological lifestyle. With an anti-physiological diet and physical inactivity, the body creates an acidic environment. The cause of the cells ejecting the oxygen is acidity. The lack of oxygen in the cells creates an acidic environment.

He said that the reduction of oxygen and acidity are two sides of the same coin. If someone has one of those then they also have the other. So, acidic environment is an environment without oxygen.

Every normal cell has an absolute need for oxygen, but tumor cells can live without it.

Tumor tissues are acidic and healthy tissues are alkaline.

Also, Otto found that tumor stations are anaerobic (do no inhale oxygen) and cannot survive in presence of high oxygen concentrations. Tumor stations can survive only with glucose and oxygen-free environment.

Dr. Warburg said that if you take away 35% of a healthy cells’ oxygen you can turn them into cancer cells within just two days. So, therefore, cancer is nothing but a defense mechanism used by some body cells so they would survive in the acidic environment in the absence of oxygen.

IMPORTANT: It all depends on what you eat. Once the trial process has been completed, depending on the food quality protein, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins and minerals conditions of acidity and alkalinity of the body are ensured and created.

Alkaline or acidic condition is measured by PH scale whose values go 0-14, where 7 is the neutral zone. From 0 to 7 is acidic and from 7 to 14 is alkali. It is important to know how acidic or alkaline foods affect health because for the cells to function successfully they PH value should be slightly above 7th

In a completely healthy person’s blood PH is between 7.4 and 7.45. If the PH value is lower than 7 then the person ends into a coma.

Which foods create acidic environment in the body?

Refined salt,
Refined sugar and all its derivates,
Products of animal origin (milk and cheese),
Bread
Refined flour and all its derivates (cakes, pasta).
Margarine
Cigarettes
Coffee
Alcohol
Any cooked food
All industrial processed food such as cans, artificial colors, flavors, stabilizers and others
Which foods alkalize the body?

Fruits
Vegetables
Water
Also, exercise gives oxygen to the whole body. Sitting lifestyle destroys overall health.

The ideal ratio is having 60% of alkaline diet than acidic.

Avoid soft drinks and refined juices as well as all possible sweeteners!

For the sick, their ideal diet needs to be consisted of 80% of alkaline and avoid all harmful products.

If you have cancer, we highly recommended alkalizing the body as much as possible.

Chemotherapy does not cures cancer, it rather INCREASES acidity in the body

Chemotherapy increases the acidity of the body to the extent that the body needs to start spending the reserves of oxygen. In order to neutralize the acidity, the organism sacrifices minerals that are found in bones, teeth, hair and nails.

For this reason those who undergo chemotherapy experience hair loss, claimed Dr. Warburg

Dr. Raymond Rife: Cured Cancer in 1934, Then He was Killed

Many people are trying to find the cure for cancer, yet until now it is still unknown. To the fact that cancer industry is making revenue of more than one hundred billion dollars a year but so disappointing to know that the actual cure is still undiscovered. However, there was a scientist who cured cancer in 1934 but unfortunately he was been killed.

DR. RAYMOND RIFE WAS BORN IN 1888.HE IS ONE OF THE GREATEST SCIENTIFIC GENIUSES OF THE 20TH CENTURY.  HE CONTRIBUTED A LOT TO TECHNOLOGY IN THE AREA OF OPTICS, ELECTRONICS, RADIOCHEMISTRY, BIOCHEMISTRY, BALLISTICS AND AVIATION. THE MAN WHO CREATED THE FIRST MICRO BIO-TIC TELESCOPE . THE FIRST TELESCOPE TO LOOK INTO CELLS.

THE FUNDAMENTAL RESEARCH BY DR. ROYAL RAYMOND RIFE IS THE HALLMARK OF THIS TREATMENT APPROACH. HIS RESEARCH IN THE 1930’S STILL STANDS OUT, AND IT HAS COME DOWN THROUGH THE YEARS IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE RIFE DIGITAL DEVICES.

By 1920, Rife had finished building the world’s first virus microscope. By 1933, he had perfected that technology.

DURING THE 1920’S AND 30’S, DR. ROYAL RAYMOND RIFE PRODUCED SOME RATHER ASTOUNDING ACCOMPLISHMENTS IN MEDICINE AND BIOLOGY.DR. RIFE PRODUCED A TYPE OF FREQUENCY GENERATOR, BASED ON HIS THEORIES, THAT COULD SHATTER BACTERIA, VIRUSES, MOLD, AND OTHER PATHOGENS RESPONSIBLE FOR A LARGE NUMBER OF ILLS. AND BEGAN LOOKING FOR A CURE FOR CANCER IN 1920.

In 1932 he managed to isolate a cancer microorganism known as VX Virus. A year after he designed the Universal Microscope that could magnify an object 60,000x their normal size.HE POSTULATED LIFE FORMS OSCILLATE AT CERTAIN FREQUENCIES, destroying organisms using a natural frequency without destroying adjacent tissue. He named this process Mortal Oscillatory Rate. He learned how to destroy it in laboratory cultures and went on to cure cancer in animals.

In 1934, the University of Southern California appointed a Special Medical Research Committee to bring 16 terminal cancer patients from Pasadena County Hospital to Rife’s San Diego Laboratory and clinic for treatment.The team included doctors and pathologists assigned to examine the patients, if still alive, in 90 days. Rife  successfully cured within three months time 14 out of 16 terminally ill cancer patients, while the other two were cured after subsequent six weeks. Despite his 100% cure rate, he was deprived of any acknowledgment for his accomplishment.

Participating in the original 1934 USC study were the following people: Director of the Northwestern Medical School Arthur Kendall, president of USC Rufus Klein-Schmidt, Milbank Johnson, Edward Kopps of the Metabolic Clinic in La Jolla, George Fischer of the NY Childrens Hospital, Kurt Meyer of the Hooper Foundation in San Francisco, and the Chief Surgeon of Santa Fe Railway Whalen Morrison.

Dr Milbank Johnson, who was the professor of Physiology and Clinical Medicine at USC, and chairman of the Special Medical Research Committee, operated his own cancer clinic utilizing the Rife therapy for 10 years. He was able to document many cases of cancer reversal there.

In the Summer of 1934 in California,

Under the auspices of the University of Southern California, a group of leading American bacteriologists and doctors conducted the first successful cancer clinic. The results showed that:

a) cancer was caused by a micro-organism:
b) the micro-organism could be painlessly destroyed in terminally ill cancer patients: and
c) the effects of the disease could be reversed.

By 1939, Dr. Rife had both identified the microbes and light flashing rates(ultrasound frequencies ) which destroyed individual micro-organisms responsible for cancer, herpes,carcinoma and other other major illnesses. The June 20, 1944 Smithsonian Annual Report mentions sarcoma cancer, leprosy, tuberculosis, and typhoid. Other diseases such as polio were cited in various newspaper articles. Viruses and bacteria could be destroyed by generating energy waves dissonant to frequencies which maintained them. Also, weakened life energy could be enhanced by subjecting organisms to the frequencies which were responsible for maintaining a healthy vibratory rate.  In addition to that he also could make degenerative conditions such as cataracts to be reversed. His work was described in Science magazine, medical journals, and later the Smithsonian Institution”s annual report.

The technical discovery leading to the cancer cure had been described in Science magazine in 1931. In the decade following the 1934 clinical success, the technology and the subsequent successful treatment of cancer patients was discussed at medical conferences, disseminated in a medical journal, cautiously but professionally reported in a major newspaper, and technically explained in an annual report published by the Smithsonian Institution.

However, the cancer cure threatened a number of scientists, physicians, and financial interests. A cover-up was initiated. Physicians using the new technology were coerced into abandoning it.  The author of the Smithsonian article was followed and then was shot at while driving his car.  He never wrote about the subject again.  All reports describing the cure were censored by the head of the AMA (American Medical Association) from the major medical journals. Objective scientific evaluation by government laboratories was prevented.  And renowned researchers who supported the technology and its new scientific principles in bacteriology were scorned., ridiculed and called liars to their face.

 

On November 20, 1931, forty-four of the nation’s most respected medical authorities attended dinner honouring Rife and his microscope and Professor Arthur Kendall, with a banquet billed as “The End To All Diseases” at the Pasadena estate of Dr Milbank. But by 1939, almost all of these distinguished doctors and scientists were denying that they had ever met Rife.

On the eve of a press conference to announce the results of the 1934 study on Rife’s cancer therapy, Dr Milbank Johnson, former president of the Southern California AMA, was fatally poisoned and his papers vanished.Also, after a failed attempt by Morris Fishbein to buy the rights to Rife’s healing instrument for the medical drug industry,  Rife’s laboratories were set on fire and ruined. Dr.Nemes who had replicated a part of Rife’s work died in a inexplicable fire along with the destruction of all his research papers. A similar fire also destroyed the Burnett Lab, which was validating Rife’s work.  Royal Rife was murdered by fatal combination of an “accidental” lethal dose of  Valium and alcohol in 1971 at the Grossmont Hospital after a heart attack.

 

Milbank Johnson, M.D. October 13, 1871 – October 3, 1944, who was the professor of Physiology and Clinical Medicine at USC, and chairman of the Special Medical Research Committee, operated his own cancer clinic utilizing the Rife therapy for 10 years. He was able to document many cases of cancer reversal there.

 

Eventually, a long dark silence lasting decades fell over the cancer cure. In time, the cure was labeled a ‘myth’ – it never happened.  However, documents now available prove that the cure did exist, was tested successfully in clinical trials, and in fact was used secretly for years afterwards – continuing to cure cancer as well as other diseases. 

Working with some of the most respected researchers in America along with leading doctors from Southern California and using the original “Royal Rife Machine” Rife electronically destroyed the cancer virus in patients, allowing their own immune systems to restore health.

Post clinical trials conducted in 1935, 1936 and 1937 by the head of the U.S.C. Medical Committee verified the results of the Rife experiment. Independent physicians utilizing the equipment successfully treated as many as 40 people per day during these years. In addition to curing cancer and other deadly diseases, degenerative conditions such as cataracts were reversed.

Imagine, for a moment, that you have spent more than two decades in painfully laborious research– that you have discovered an incredibly simple, electronic approach to curing literally every disease on the planet caused by viruses and bacteria . Indeed, it is a discovery that would end the pain and suffering of countless millions and change life on Earth forever. Certainly, the medical world would rush to embrace you with every imaginable accolade and financial reward imaginable. You would think so, wouldn’t you? Unfortunately, arguably the greatest medical genius in all recorded history suffered a fate literally the opposite of the foregoing logical scenario. In fact, the history of medicine is replete with stories of genius betrayed by backward thought and jealously, but most pathetically, by greed and money.

The Universal Microscope is the third of five microscopes built by Rife, and was capable of 60,000 power of magnification with 30,000 diameters of resolution. The only other known Rife microscope [still in existence] is stored in a London museum where it may be viewed by appointment. Accounts of Rife’s microscopes appeared in The San Diego Tribune, L.A. Times, and science magazines.

The latest edition, the Royal Rife Digital series, transforms the electro-therapy treatments of the past into a modern hand-held package, using the latest chip technology and frequency algorithms with an easy-to-use, keypad-programmable frequency device.

“Dr Royal Rife”s investigated the cause of many diseases including cancer. Dr Rife used the most advanced microscope in the world to identify the existence of a Virus that he believed was the sole contributor to all cancers. This microscope was the most powerful of its time, and was invented and constructed by Dr Rife himself; for the sole purpose of locating the Virus that contributed to Cancer.. The birth of the Rife Machine was to be the solution to elimination of this Virus, and Rife performed successful Rife Machine treatments with many patients over the years. This was verified by the U.S.C. Medical School Special Medical Research Committee.” † USC-0292E41-Page1203(b)

Royal Raymond Rife, 1888-1971

D.Sc., University of Southern California
Honorary Ph.D., Heidelberg University, Germany
Further Studies: Johns Hopkins University and Zeiss Optics United States Navy Researcher in foreign laboratories.

Designed and built medical research instruments, including: Spectroscopes, optical tools, micromanipulators and stop-motion photomicrographs. He was Awarded 14 medals by U.S. and foreign governments for work with variable pitch propellers, inclinometers, machine gun synchronization gears and high altitude barometric pressure scales.

 

Technology Rife machine used from 1934-1940 and beyond, Curing 100% of his patients with specific resonating frequencies from his newly fabricated Royal Rife machine.

 

Three original Rife Machines have been found. 

By the late 1950’s even independent doctors and labs (among them New York’s Presbyterian Hospital) – unaware of Rife’s work, were bringing forth their own proof that cancer was an infectious viral disease, and maintained that “cancer did not consist of a localized tumor alone.” They described it as a generalized disease caused by an organism in the blood. It could be that all of us have that virus and that it usually doesn’t create tumors except when there’s enough toxicity due to chemical exposure, unhealthy habits, or poorly oxygenated blood. (exceptions exist though. ie: Linda McCartney who died of cancer although she was really into healthy living.) But we believe it is also very helpful to detox and live a healthy lifestyle as well as remove the virus that can turn cells cancerous.

Modern versions of Rife’s frequency instrument exist (both original tube type and pad types), but cost at least $2000. (BioElectric is now selling both type units for much less to change this.) In the USA these devices are outlawed because the FDA will not approve anything that doesn’t keep the money rolling in via drugs/surgery/radiation. (hundreds of thousands of dollars per patient). But the medical system in Africa has approved their use there.

 There are other alternatives to the Dr. Rife approach of “blasting apart the pathogens”, by normalizing and stimulating the functional system of the body. Echad project is one such alternative.

The Mission of Today’s Beam Ray™ CorporationThe information below was taken directly from a brochure put out by the Beam Ray™ Corporation in Birmingham, Alabama. The purpose of the brochure is to provide a quick overview of the Beam Ray, what it does, and how it was invented, and a short biography of its inventor, Dr. Royal Raymond Rife.

From the beginning, the goal of the Beam Ray Corporation has been to educate people to the benefits of Rife technology along with the basic protocols to address the cause and effect of most diseases. This education will help to make informed decisions while working in conjunction with a health practitioner.

Based on the work of Dr. Royal Raymond Rife, Beam Ray has researched and developed a unique sound and light generator that can be used for pain relief and pain management with most all subjects. Currently marketed for use with animals while the company undergoes evaluation for FDA clearance for use in humans, the Beam Ray is a valuable tool for all to have and use.

Beam Ray is the result of many years of research and development dedicated to perfecting the technology first begun by Dr. Rife. With data culled from Rife’s original lab notes, Beam Ray strives to develop a unit worthy of the Rife name and heritage.

The powerful light microscopes Rife invented allowed him to observe viruses in their natural state. Building on this technology, Rife’s Beam Ray was able to destroy harmful pathogens by transmitting certain frequencies.

Beam Ray pledges to produce quality, faithful to the technology developed by Rife–one that provides positive results. Beam Ray Corporation is a company you can trust. (crossoverroad)

Perhaps you should  take your discovery to the pharmaceutical industry; certainly it would be of great interest to those protectors of humanity.But remember, you have developed a universal cure which makes drugs obsolete, so the pharmaceutical industry just might be less than thrilled to hear about your work. In fact, the big shots might even make it certain that your human disease-ending technology never sees the light of day, by preventing it from becoming licensed by the regulatory agencies. Now, assuming your amazing cure is an electronic instrument, the only cost of using it is electricity. And it is absolutely harmless to patients, who can recover without losing their hair, the family home, and their life savings. So, with your technology, there is no longer any reason for people with cancer to pay over $300,000 per patient — to become deathly ill from chemotherapy, radiation treatments, and the mutilation of surgery. It sounds like you won’t find many friends and support among practicing oncologists, radiologists, and surgeons, doesn’t it?

You might try the hospitals and big clinics. But how thrilled are they going to be about a therapy administered in any doctor’s office; which reverses illness before the patient has to be hospitalized? Thanks to you, the staffs of these institutions will essentially be out of work. Well then, how about the insurance companies? Surely, they would be delighted to save the expense of hospitalization – at least the companies which haven’t invested in hospitals, where the staff is now sitting around waiting for someone to break a leg or be in a car accident…and the ones who don’t lose policyholders as a result of your invention…and the companies which aren’t trying to divest their pharmaceutical stock. 

Rife machines and cancer

Read about what the Rife machine is and some of the claims related to cancer.

There are several websites claiming that the Rife machine can be used to treat a number of different conditions including cancer.

What the Rife machine is
The Rife machine was developed by Royal Raymond Rife in the 1920s. He was an American scientist. The machine is also called a Rife frequency generator.

Rife and his supporters say that each disease or condition has its own electromagnetic frequency. They also say that finding that frequency and producing an impulse of the same frequency will kill or disable diseased cells.

To use the Rife machine you put electrical pads on either your feet or hands. These pads are attached to the machine, which produces electrical impulses. You connect yourself to the machine for a few minutes a day, several times a week.

The Rife machine and other types of similar machines produce low energy waves. There is no evidence that the electrical energy the Rife machine produces can destroy cancer cells.

What a Rife machine costs
A search on the internet brings up different prices for the machine from a few hundred pounds to a couple of thousand pounds.

Lack of evidence for Rife machines
Before any new treatment or diagnostic tool can be used it goes through a long process of development. During this process the researchers test to check that it works, that it doesn’t do any harm, and that the benefits outweigh the disadvantages.

The Rife machine hasn’t been through the usual process of scientific testing. There is no evidence to show that it does what its supporters say it does. There is also no evidence that it doesn’t cause harm.

Research into electromagnetic fields and cancer
Supporters of this treatment say there is reluctance within the medical community to support research into the Rife machine. And some people say there is a conspiracy to stop it being developed. But there have been some developments using electromagnetic energy to diagnose and treat a number of different diseases. And this research is ongoing.

Researchers have been interested in how electromagnetic energy can be used to diagnose and treat diseases for a long time. And there have been some developments that we know help diagnose and treat cancer. For example, x-rays, radiotherapy and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans. These all use high energy waves and are specialist machines which are proven to work.

Some researchers have been looking into the effects of low level electromagnetic energy on cancer cells. They have found that these low frequencies do seem to affect cancer cells but not normal cells. However, this research is still at an experimental stage, and it’s not clear exactly how it could work. And the electromagnetic frequencies used in this research are different from those produced by Rife machines.

The Rife machine has not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in America. And the American Cancer Society says that the FDA has warned companies who sell these machines not to make claims that have not been proven.

Possible side effects
Supporters of the Rife machine say there aren’t any side effects. But there have been some reports of electrical shocks and rashes.

Some patients, worried that conventional treatments won’t work or pose significant side effects, seek a treatment whose effectiveness isn’t actually supported by scientific evidence or may even prove dangerous. During a time of uncertainty and anxiety, it’s understandable that any hope for a cure — even if it isn’t medically proven — is tempting.

“Patients want something ‘natural’ to try to treat their cancer or prevent their cancer from coming back,” says Memorial Sloan Kettering pharmacist and herbalist K. Simon Yeung. “But the people promoting these treatments might not necessarily have a medical or oncology background. In addition, patients who try these therapies may find, when they come back to seek mainstream treatment, that it’s too late and their cancer has already spread.”

Dr. Yeung is manager of the About Herbs database, created and maintained by MSK’s Integrative Medicine Service. The service provides complementary therapies such as acupuncture, music therapy, and massage that are used in addition to — not as alternatives for — mainstream cancer approaches such as chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery.

Here, Dr. Yeung explains the hype and the scientific evidence surrounding three highly publicized but unproven therapies: cannabis oil, Laetrile, and a pH-manipulation (also known as alkaline) diet.

Cannabis Oil
The hype: Cannabis oil is often heralded as a treatment to destroy or shrink cancerous tumors, as well as a cure for diabetes, ulcers, arthritis, migraines, insomnia, infections, and many other diseases. Also called marijuana oil or hemp oil, it’s extracted from marijuana plants, often with higher proportion of a compound known as CBD (cannabidiol), which has less of a psychoactive effect than the more-famous THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) compound that gets marijuana users high.

Cannabis oil is available in several forms with different potencies. It can be infused into cooking oil that users squirt under the tongue or mix into food. Its vapors can also be inhaled. By federal law, cannabis products are illegal, though several states have enacted laws to legalize their medical use.

The evidence: While commercially available cannabis compounds are FDA-approved to reduce cancer treatment–related side effects such as nausea and vomiting and to improve appetite, no clinical trials have shown that cannabis products can treat cancer.

Claims that cannabis oil cures cancer are anecdotal and largely unsupportable, based on scant research done in mice and in labs. Side effects can include memory and attention loss. Perhaps most important, there is evidence that cannabis compounds may inhibit enzymes that patients need to metabolize other anticancer drugs, thereby increasing their toxicity or reducing their effectiveness.

The verdict: “So far, there are no human studies that show cannabis oil can be used as cancer treatment,” Dr. Yeung says. “Patients who are using it — or any form of marijuana — should let their doctors know so they can advise you properly.”

Laetrile
The hype: Laetrile, first popularized as a cancer therapy in Russia and the United States more than a century ago, is the trade name for a purified form of amygdalin, an extract derived from apricot pits and some nuts and plants. Intestinal enzymes break down Laetrile to produce cyanide, which proponents claim kills cancer cells and leaves normal tissue unharmed. Some also claim that Laetrile is actually a vitamin called B-17 and that deficiencies can cause certain cancers. Banned in the United States, an oral form of Laetrile is available in other countries.

The evidence: Laetrile indeed breaks down into cyanide, but the poison doesn’t just selectively strike cancer cells — it can sicken or kill patients as well. Clinical studies done in the 1970s and 1980s, including those sponsored by the National Institutes of Health, indicated that Laetrile didn’t reduce malignant tumors’ size or growth, but some patients experienced cyanide poisoning.

The verdict: “Laetrile has not been proven to be effective against cancer and can even be dangerous to some patients,” Dr. Yeung says. “If amygdalin is eventually used in an anticancer drug, it will have to be in a different form, because the oral form is toxic and too dangerous to use.”

Manipulating pH Levels through Diet
The hype: Based on the scientific observation that cancer cells thrive in an acidic environment — meaning low pH levels — some people contend that highly “acidic” foods such as meat, cheese, and grain products raise the risk of cancer by reducing pH levels in the blood.

They claim that eating “alkaline” foods such as fruit, green vegetables, and other plant-based products discourages the growth of cancer cells by raising blood pH levels and tout the benefits of the alkaline diet (also known as the alkaline ash diet or alkaline acid diet).The evidence: Cancer cells create an acidic microenvironment due to a high metabolic rate. Cancer cells can’t live in a highly alkaline environment, but neither can healthy cells. Your body works to keep pH levels constant, and changing your diet is not going to substantially change the pH levels of your blood, which are tightly regulated by the kidneys and lungs regardless of foods consumed.

The pH of bodily fluids, such as saliva and urine, does change temporarily depending on the foods you eat, but that doesn’t affect blood pH levels (or, hence, the environment of cancer cells in the body). In fact, any significant deviation in blood pH levels can cause serious, even life-threatening conditions known as acidosis (low pH) or alkalosis (high pH)The verdict: “There is no evidence that changing your diet to alter pH levels affects cancer growth,” Dr. Yeung says. “The actual science has been misinterpreted.

Changing the pH in your saliva doesn’t mean your blood pH changes. Some patients try using chemicals to modify their blood pH, but that can be extremely dangerous.”Back to topThe Bottom Line“Natural” cancer therapies should be regarded with great caution because most are unsupported by evidence. Many people offering testimonials to the effectiveness of such treatments may attribute benefits to them simply because their condition improved after using them — when the actual cause for the improvement is unrelated.

The good news is that mainstream cancer therapies are safer and more effective than ever. New chemotherapies work better with fewer side effects, and novel drugs target specific mutations in cancer cells to minimize harm to healthy cells. Highly precise forms of radiation therapy destroy tumors while sparing normal tissue. New approaches harness the body’s own immune powers to destroy cancer cells. And new surgical techniques are making it possible to remove tumors more safely while minimizing both risk of recurrence and recovery times. If you’re considering using a complementary therapy in addition to your traditional cancer treatments, always check with a reputable source such as our About Herbs database or the National Cancer Institute, and always tell your doctor.
