At some point in a human being’s existence on this planet, there is a large certainty that you or someone you know will encounter the misfortune of being exposed to the destructive effects of cancer. (Fear of Cancer)
The fear of cancer is officially known as “Carcinophobia” and the most established perceptions of suffering and distress that are associated with cancer include: Pain, Hair loss, vomiting, nausea, fatigue and fragility. These symptoms are not often caused by the cancer itself until advanced stages but usually are actually side-effects of our medical solutions used for the treatment of Cancer (Chemotherapy or Radiation).
The most common symptoms of cancer involve the presence of tumors but other cancers include Lymphona (Lymph system cancer), Leukemia (Blood borne cancer) and Melanoma (skin cancer). The Cancer Society recommend cancer-related check-ups and certain tests for people even though they have no symptoms as sometimes cancer can go undetected for a long period of time until it reaches the systemic or chronic stage.
As it is illegal to suggest or recommend ‘unapproved cancer treatments’ and also illegal to indicate that an ‘unapproved’ supplement or natural remedy could be used in treating, preventing or curing diseases such as cancer, therefore, I will keep the focus of this article on strengthening the immune system which remains our greatest natural ally against any disease or illness. I will also mention alternative methods that have been used over the years to strengthen and assist the immune system in its battle against disease and I will discuss holistic cancer treatments only from an educational point of view. None of the holistic therapies discussed here are intended to replace any advice or treatment given to you by your Doctor.
The Cancer Act of 1939 says “No person shall take any part in the publication of any advertisement containing an offer to treat any person for cancer, or to prescribe any remedy therefore, or to give any advice in connection with the treatment thereof.”
Dr Max Gerson (1881-1958) used a combination of a natural organic diet, juicing, coffee enema’s, nutritional supplements and detoxification to strengthen the immune system and encourage the body to naturally heal itself of so called “incurable” diseases.
After Gerson died, his daughter, Charlotte Gerson followed in her father’s footsteps and founded The Gerson Institute which is a non-profit organization dedicated to provide knowledge and education in this non toxic treatment of cancer and other diseases.
One of Dr Gerson’s published books was a “ A Cancer Therapy” in which he built on his theory using scientific research and explanations, as well as presenting fifty documented case histories showing the success of his holistic treatment for cancer.

Black Salve for Skin Cancer
The use of Black Salves and the essential herb bloodroot has been around for centuries, it is also referred to as Drawing Salve, Black ointment or Eschariotic. It is a very strong invasive formula designed to locate, oxidize and dissolve diseased, damaged and parasitic tissues and cancerous cells while leaving healthy tissue intact.
Different grades of Black salves can be used either orally using capsules or externally by applying it directly onto the skin (its supposed to be effective for Tumors, warts, moles, fungus, viral infections) or combining the two together for the most effective results. It is thought to strengthen the immune system and literally drive out the infection, illness or diseased tissue from the body.
Black Salves is often used in conjunction with powerful antioxidant and immune boosting formula’s or intravenous therapy to help speed up healing and elimination and Neem or Olive oil as the oil helps prevent scarring and Neem is a great antiseptic that reduces infection and itchiness. It is also often combined with topical or oral analgesic pain relievers that must not contain anti-inflammatory agents to as it’s the inflammation that allows it to push the disease from the body, some people opt for meditation over medication to manage the pain. After the malady is drawn from the body it is usually kept moist using Vaseline with a strong natural antibiotic like goldenseal and Hydrogen peroxide to assist healing.
Ellagic acid is a phytochemical, or plant chemical, the most potent levels can be found in Strawberries, Raspberries , Cranberries and Pomegranates and other plant foods.
Ellagic acid is being researched for its ability to inhibit and slow cancer cell division, promote apoptosis (cell death), prevent the binding of carcinogens to DNA and strengthening of the connective tissues. Ellagic acid supplements are usually recommended to be used in conjunction with other alternative treatments.
Dr Johanna Budwig, a German biochemist and expert on oils and fats came up with a formula that consisted of cottage cheese and flaxseed oil as a natural treatment for cancer and other diseases in 1951. The flaxseed oil and cottage cheese are synergistic, meaning one work as a catalyst to promote the healthful properties of the other and vice versa.
The cottage cheese is high in sulphur and acts as a carrier for the flaxseed oil which promotes oxidation once reaching the diseased cells, this is thought to inhibit cancer cells and boost the immune system.
The mixture can be simply made in a blender by mixing 2 tablespoons of good quality organic flaxseed oil with a quarter cup of low fat cottage cheese (berries, almonds, natural yogurt can be added for flavor)
Personally I believe that when it comes to Cancer, alternative treatments are way ahead of more conventional medicine. It doesn’t make sense to me to treat anything in the body using something highly toxic but it makes perfect sense to support the body nutritionally and try to focus on enhancing the immune system. Also one of the most important things is having the right mindset and the will to live, so often you hear of people dying after their Doctor announces they only have months to live, yet when you start researching alternative treatments you read of countless people refusing to accept death and changing their lifestyles, alkalizing their bodies and healing themselves in miraculous and extraordinary ways.
