For Dad

I have taken the time to compile this information for my father, who I hope to convince to have the courage to make a wise decision based on good science, not propaganda.

Show Me The Money!

Think about it.

If you're a doctor and you cure your patient, you just lost a customer, which means, of course, you just lost your income stream from that customer.

If you run a pharmaceutical company and you develop a drug that cures cancer, you are eliminating your income source. If you're head of the National Cancer Institute and you cure cancer, you just eliminated any reason the government has to continue your $2 billion annual budget. And to top it off, you just eliminated your own job.

When was the last time you heard of the head of an organization or department of government shutting themselves down because they self-determined that there was no longer a need for their services. Have you ever heard of such nobility?

Well, other than in Hollywood movies, only one time in U.S. history has a state department head determined that there was no longer a need for his department and recommended to the President that his department be dismantled.

It happened under the Nixon administration. Howard Phillips, the presidential candidate for the Constitution Party (formerly the US Taxpayers Party) advised that the executive department that he was head of be dismantled because it was a useless waste of money. Of course, the administration did not take his advice.

Be Informed - By The Informed

My business partner and I are involved in gathering information and research on a daily basis and I keep hearing the same thing over and over (see quote below).

Here is a quote from a doctor in the Well Being Journal's Special Edition: "Healing Cancer Naturally", about Chemo Statistics:

"If you go to a cancer specialist, you are likely to go through chemotherapy - a treatment that only cures about 3% of patients and has no proven influence on the length and quality of life."

"As many as 75% of cancer patients undergo chemotherapy - even though their oncologists are aware that it's not only ineffective but also highly toxic."

"Furthermore: A recent survey in Canada found that 75% of oncologists would not undergo chemotherapy or recommend it to a loved one."

[Robert Willis, Jr. M.D., in Health & Longevity, February, 1998]

I am not interested in bashing doctors. I believe there is an important place for doctors in medicine. The problem is that education (for doctors) is so influenced by the pharmaceutical companies, that simple, accessible, and inexpensive treatments [that are so effective that they could be considered cures] are simply not taught. Only patentable methodologies are taught so that when they [the doctors] go into practice, they will exclusively use... you guessed it... pharmaceuticals.

The mass media also works in concert with the pharmaceutical companies. And why wouldn't they. They receive hundreds of millions of dollars in advertising revenue each year. Remember all those commercials you've seen... "may cause nausea, vomiting, kidney failure, or rectal bleeding, etc., etc., etc." Gee, maybe I'll keep the cough rather than take the risk of rectal bleeding.

Good Health is Bad Business

From a business standpoint, the problem with the natural methodologies of working with illness is:

  • Herbs and natural supplements are not patentable

  • Herbs and natural supplements are cheap

  • Herbs and natural supplements are easily accessible

Of course, this is great for sick people who choose to treat themselves naturally, but bad for rich pharmaceutical companies looking to develop residual revenue.

You won't get rich manufacturing or selling St. John's Wort, but you might if you could invent a new drug that only you can license for production and, consequently, sell for $80+ a bottle. Unfortunately, effectiveness is not a factor in this equation. If it were, it would be financial suicide.

Come One, Come All

Prozac, the new pharma-candy, is a perfect example. According to this CNN report, Prozac is no better than any other SRIs (serotonin reuptake inhibitors) and may not be as well tolerated (have more side effects) as older drugs:

"A sweeping government study of antidepressants found that Prozac and other drugs of its generation worked no better and no worse than older medicines to alleviate major depression."

"Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) such as Prozac have been prescribed widely since they came on the market, but authors of Thursday's study suggested older drugs such as tricyclics may be better tolerated by some patients."

[March 19, 1999, ROCKVILLE, Maryland (CNN)]

Yes, believe it or not, in order to maintain the perception of objectivity, mass media agents do print stories like this. Good luck finding them.


Did you know that over 140,000 people die each year from ADEs (adverse drug reactions, i.e. side-effects) of doctor-prescribed drugs and cost the United States over $136 billion annually.

[JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association) 1997, 277(4):301]

I recently heard from a practicing medical professional that only 5% to 10% of ADEs are actually reported. Do you know what this means?

This means the side-effects of doctor-prescribed drugs may account for more than 1.4 million deaths in the United States every year!

What Your Doctor Doesn't Know...

An excerpt from the International Journal for Integrative Medicine says:

Do vitamins and minerals interfere with chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy? Patients frequently ask me this question because they have been advised not to take supplements during treatment. The scientific literature has clearly addressed this question.

[The International Journal of Integrative Medicine, January/February 1999, p.22]

The doctors who wrote this report know that "the scientific literature has clearly addressed this question." Nonetheless, many (or most) doctors continue to unknowingly advise against supplementation.

Following this quote, the report continues with 5 bulleted paragraphs detailing specific documented benefits of supplementation with allopathic treatment!

But He's Our Friend

This past year, my business partner's grandmother almost died as a result of a side-effect of Premarin, which was prescribed by her doctor.

Her doctor put this 84 year-old woman with a known circulatory disorder (severe arterial blockage - which the doctor definitely knew about) on Premarin as a type of estrogen therapy to "help prevent osteoporosis." There are two huge problems with this.

  • First of all, estrogen therapy is another medical "OOPS"! It's out... gone... been well determined that it either doesn't work or the few known benefits are far outweighed by the known dangerous side effects (i.e. increasing the risk of breast cancer and other hormone-dependent cancers)
  • Secondly, you should never put anyone with known circulatory problems on Premarin. This is (or should be) well known in the medical community. Go grab a PDA (Physicians' Desk Reference) and you will see that it plainly states that Premarin can cause stroke in persons with known circulatory problems.

Less than 1 year after she went on Premarin, sure enough, she had a stroke. Unfortunately, the family wasn't willing to pursue the "gimmee" malpractice suit because they viewed the doctor as a friend. The doctor should be saying, "whew!"

Just as an aside, do you know what Premarin is? Well, first of all, it stands for pregnant mare urine. That's right... a good source of estrogen... horse pee.

Herbs Galore

If you haven't noticed, there's an herb craze going on. Everybody and their brother is getting pardoned by the president... excuse me... I mean, starting an herb company. Herbal MLM (multi-level marketing) companies are popping up like weeds.

[The president actually did pardon everyone and his brother -Roger.]

Herbs and supplements are here to stay. Why? Simply because they work and there is a a tremendous amount of research behind them, not to mention a long-running history the world over. The pharmaceutical companies know this and have even begun marketing their own natural supplements and buying up small herb growers and manufacturers. Of course, this still accounts for only a very minute part of their total revenue.

If you watch CNN or any other "news" source, you will get the impression that scientific information on the effects of herbs and alternative supplements on the human body is lacking. "We just don't have enough information yet", they imply.

Fortunately, I am in the business of researching and publishing such information and know that this is simply not true. There is so much research and information that parsing through all of it is a mammoth task. Research on herbs and natural supplements is going on all over the world and has been for hundreds of years.

Beware... Anyone who states that there just isn't enough research on almost any herb in existence is either lying (and receiving some benefit in return, most likely money) or ignorant. I know. I used to be one of them.

Practical Information

Here are a few snippets of research that are available on a variety of natural supplements:

Colloidal Silver

This is one of my personal favorites. Colloidal silver, like most everything else, has been very well researched and has virtually no side effects. It seems that this substance could possibly replace all (that's right... ALL) antibiotics, but you won't see that happen any time soon because it's not patentable, it's relatively cheap and believe it or not, you can buy kits and produce it in your own home.

Colloidal silver is a powerful broad spectrum antimicrobial that destroys numerous pathogens (disease-causing microorganisms), including bacteria, fungi, parasites, protozoa and viruses. is known that silver reacts with the bacterium’s cell wall (composed of structural proteins called peptidoglycans), inhibiting oxygen (energy) transfer into the cell, which results in suffocation.

Thus, unlike synthetic antibiotics that are disease-specific, colloidal silver is cell-structure-specific - any cell lacking a chemically-resistant wall is vulnerable to silver, including extracellular viruses, which have no cell wall.

Colloidal silver boasts the virtual inability for pathogens to develop resistant strains. In fact, colloidal silver is known to destroy over 650 disease-causing organisms, including Giardella vaginalis, Neisseria gonorrhea, Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pyogenes, the bacteria which cause dyptheria, pneumonia, typhoid and various types of food poisoning (such as Salmonella typhi), and other enteric pathogens.

Colloidal silver also destroys the fungi responsible for athlete’s foot, candida yeast infections (Candida albicans and Candida globata), ringworm and thrush; chlamydiae, which causes infections of the eye, genitals and respiratory system; rickettsiae, which causes Q fever and Rocky Mountain Spotted fever; and the viruses that cause AIDS, the common cold, influenza and measles.

Colloidal silver is also effective against acne, ear/nose/throat infections, eczema, eye infections, herpes, prostate infections, shingles, tonsillitis, virus warts, wounds and more.

Silver also facilitates rejuvenation of injured tissue (i.e. severe burns, broken bones). Thus, colloidal silver may prove beneficial for bone and joint surgery and for the treatment of chronic osteomyelitis and other orthopedic infections.

Now, there are literally volumes more where that came from. Nevertheless, here are a few of the research sources that went into this single supplement:

IP-6 with Inositol

Books have been written about the effectiveness of IP-6 on cancer.

Inositol enhanced the ability of IP-6 to inhibit cell division as well as its antitumor effect in vivo (in the living body). A significantly greater suppression of both cell proliferation and colorectal cancer was also noted when inositol was added to IP-6. The same enhancement effect was seen in the mammary cancer and metastatic tumor experiments...

[IP-6: Nature's Revolutionary Cancer Fighter,
AbulKalam M. Shamsuddin, MD, PhD; p.61]

Were other IP-6 researchers getting the same results? I was pleased to learn that they were.

Dr. Raxit Jariwalla at the Linus Pauling Institute in Palo Alto, California has confirmed my observations of the anti-cancer action of IP-6.

Dr. Theresa Pretlow, from Case Western University in Cleveland, Ohio, also came to the same statistically significant conclusions that I had.

[IP-6: Nature's Revolutionary Cancer Fighter,
AbulKalam M. Shamsuddin, MD, PhD; p.61]

By the end of 1987, I had demonstrated the following:

  • IP-6 prevented colon cancer in two different species of animals (rats and mice).

  • Inositol is also cancer inhibitory, although by itself it is much less efficient than IP-6.

  • IP-6 + Inositol is better than either one of them alone (a synergistic combination).

  • IP-6 + Inositol enhanced host resistance (immunity) by stimulating the activity of natural killer cells (NK), the immune system cells that fight cancer.
  • IP-6 is effective against a human cancer cell line (K-562 human erythroleukemia).

[IP-6: Nature's Revolutionary Cancer Fighter,
AbulKalam M. Shamsuddin, MD, PhD; p.59]

Essiac Tea

Essiac is Caisse spelled backward.

This amazing and highly-revered herbal formula was used by Rene Caisse in the early to mid 1900's to cure hundreds of people with cancer.

This formula stimulates the production of antibodies, purifies the blood, alleviates pain, promotes faster healing of wounds, enhances energy levels, eliminates diarrhea, and even lowers cholesterol.

[The Herb Allure Resource Toolkit (HART), E-Tea, p. 1]

The sheep's sorrel is the herbal ingredient in Essiac that was found to be responsible for the destruction of cancer cells in the body, or their amalgamation where metastasized cancer cells actually return to the original tumor site.

That research was done by Dr. Chester Stock as Sloan-Kettering in New York for over a three-year period. But when they gathered that information, they withheld it from the general public - yet they gave it to the Canadian Ministry of Health & Welfare. The Canadian government then immediately banned that herb for sale and distribution.

["Essiac: Nature's Cure for Cancer", An Interview with Dr. Gary L. Glum, p. 3]

In 1938, Essiac came within three votes of being legalized by the Ontario government as a remedy for terminal cancer patients.

["Essiac: Nature's Cure for Cancer", An Interview with Dr. Gary L. Glum, p. 1]

The Royal Cancer Commission hearings had come to the same conclusions that Rene had - that Essiac was a cure for cancer.

["Essiac: Nature's Cure for Cancer", An Interview with Dr. Gary L. Glum, p. 2]

I also worked with the AIDS Project, Los Angeles through their Long Beach and San Pedro districts. They had sent 179 patients home to die. They all had pneumocystis carinii and histoplasmosis. Their weight was down to about 100 pounds. Their T-4 cell counts were less then 10. The project gave me 5 of these patients. I took them off the AZT and the DDI and put them on Essiac three times a day. Those are the only ones alive today. The other 174 are dead.

["Essiac: Nature's Cure for Cancer", An Interview with Dr. Gary L. Glum, p. 5]


Beta glucan is a naturally occurring polysaccharide compound (a complex carbohydrate) found in algae, baker’s yeast, barley, mushrooms and oats.

According to research, beta glucan potentiates the immune system, specifically activating macrophages to fight bacteria, viruses and other foreign invaders. Beta glucan also facilitates the transmission of cellular information among the macrophages, T-cells, B-cells, antibodies and interferons and interleukins, thus enhancing overall immune response. A promising study published in the Journal of Immunology showed that beta glucan slowed tumor growth in mice - by the end of the 4-week study, the tumors in mice treated with beta glucan were up to 79% smaller than those in untreated mice.

[The Herb Allure Resource Toolkit (HART), Nature's Immune Stimulator, p. 1]

Cancer and Supplements

There are hundreds of herbs and supplements that have been clinically proven to fight, reduce, shrink, prevent or inhibit the growth of cancer. Many people have used (and are using) these supplements to effectively fight cancer and are achieving results dramatically superior than those using conventional medicine.

Some of these people have made themselves available to me so they can talk to others about their experiences and the programs they have used. Please contact me if you need to talk to them (serious inquiries only, please).

Being in the field, I continually hear tremendous success stories related to cancer. I hear things like:

  • "I performed better than anyone they (the hospital) had ever seen."
  • "They couldn't believe I was clear [had no trace of cancer]."
  • "When I went back, they did the MRI three times because they thought there was a problem, because they couldn't find any trace of the cancer they said was 6-months terminal."
  • "The doctor wouldn't see me again when I told his office that they [the other office] found no tumors. The nurse just said, "Honey, whatever you're doing, just keep on doing it!"
  • "The doctor said I was going to die in 3 months... That was 10 years ago."

I hope we learn from their experiences.

A Few Good Facts

Below is a small collection of interesting and important facts I collected from various sources. I offer these in hope that they will open your mind to the idea that you may have not have been told the whole story by mainstream "information" sources.

A study published in the famous book "Foods That Heal" by Maureen Salaman reports that in a test group, 100% of people with serious ulcers (most of which took years to develop) were completely healed in 2 weeks using juiced cabbage a couple times a day.

Calcium is virtually useless as a supplement until it is combined with magnesium. Without magnesium, calcium will not be absorbed into the body.

People with Alzheimer's have large deposits of aluminum in their brain tissue. Educated natural health professionals avoid aluminum cookware, aluminum foil, and food with aluminum or aluminum derivatives. Check "milk of magnesia" products, baking powders/sodas, premixed bread mixes (like Bisquick), and any baked products or pre-mixes. Plus, look for aluminum chlorohydrate or its derivatives in anti-perspirants. Check this out!

Hal Huggins, in his book, "It's All In Your Head", reports how he achieved a remission rate of 80% in patients with multiple sclerosis by simply removing their "Silver" fillings. Silver fillings contain between 50% and 70% pure mercury--the most dangerous non-radioactive metal on earth. Check this out!

Research has shown that calcium, once pasteurized (heated to kill bacteria), is no longer usable by the human body and, in fact, contributes to diseases related to calcium deficiencies. As a result, you will rarely hear dairy commercials make claims about the health benefits of milk. Instead, they will say things like, "milk is a good source of calcium", or "calcium is good for bones", etc. Also, doctors who keep up with this research are achieving incredible results in helping those with calcium- deficient diseases by removing all dairy products from their diet and adding natural sources of calcium and magnesium.

Toothpaste manufacturers can no longer claim that flouride fights cavities because there is no known research on the subject. Flouride is a highly-toxic substance that can accumulate in the body and cause a variety of diseases. Check this out!

One of my first patients was a Vice President of the United States, who was dying of malnutrition secondary to his cancer--as do 40% of all cancer patients.

[The International Journal of Integrative Medicine, January/February 1999, p.22]

An increase in survival for cancer patients is uncommon with any allopathic treatment. But an increase in survival has been demonstrated for patients who received vitamin A or other antioxidants in combination with chemotherapy or radiation therapy.

Note: Just think what might happen without chemo or radiation.

[The International Journal of Integrative Medicine, January/February 1999, p.23]

There are now more than 200 studies that show antioxidants can help decrease the risk of developing cancer.

[The International Journal of Integrative Medicine, January/February 1999, p.23]

According to Hal Huggin's book, "It's All In Your Head", the usage of mercury in dental fillings has been outlawed 2 times in US history. That's why he calls this battle to have it outlawed again, "Amalgam World-War Three". (Note: Amalgam is the technical name for mercury-based "silver" dental fillings.)

Hope This Helps

I could go on and on, but hopefully you get the idea. Should you believe everything you hear on TV, or in magazines, or in other mainstream media? Perhaps you should remember that they are in business and have no compelling reason to be honest to you, for honesty is rarely profitable. They are in business to make money.

I know people who were told by their doctors that they were going to die in a few months as they raced out the door looking for an alternative to amputation or breast removal. These good people educated themselves, then applied self-discipline and supplementation to their diet to become cancer free... most in 6 months or less. Plus they acquired a host of side effects like, dramatically increased energy, younger appearance, better sleep, improved memory, dramatically improved emotional outlook, and much more...

Nevertheless, I've always said that the biggest thing so many not-so-fortunate good people have going against them is that they simply can't believe that there are people in the world—right now—who are so bad, selfish, or simply evil that they would facilitate, cause, or promote others to suffer or die in ignorance simply for their own profit.

We've all been taught that such evils have happened in human history, but for some reason, so many are still unwilling to believe that these type of evils could happen today.

We are not lacking research, or knowledge, or funds to solve our health problems—this is clear. We are lacking integerity, honesty, individual leadership and personal responsibility.

Deny your emotions and open your mind to reason and logic—learn from history. For, if we do not learn from history, we are destined and doomed to repeat it.
