Lothar Hirneise’s Research

Who survives cancer?

Eat right ✩ eliminate ✩ energy (system change)

excerpted from an extensive lecture held by eminent cancer researcher Lothar Hirneise (see introduction) on the subject of "Worin liegt das Geheimnis der Spontanremission? (Wherein lies the secret of spontaneous remission?)" before the 6th [Dr. Hulda Regehr] Clark Symposium 2001.

Lothar Hirneise is a very knowledgeable advocate and writer on alternative healing who spent years traveling and searching for the most successful cancer therapies. He is the author of Chemotherapy Heals Cancer and the Earth is Flat). His lecture "Worin liegt das Geheimnis der Spontanremission? begins with a review of a number of different theories as to what cancer is and what causes it. The following translated excerpts start with his conclusion:

"Who survives cancer? - The 3E Program (Ernährung, Entgiftung, Energie) (Eat right, Eliminate [Detoxification], Energy)

In the last few years I have interviewed several hundred so-called final stage survivors, meaning patients who were in the final stage of cancer and who are all healthy again today. And already after, let me say 50 patients, did it become rather quickly clear to me, what was actually going on here. Which before had rather eluded me for years because I had always delved too deeply into these theories about what cancer really is. And what was it? Very simple, there are three points:

1. One point, which I discovered with 100% of all survivors, is the energy work. I will come back to that.

2. In approximately, hmm - I will say 80% of all patients, I found a nutritional change.

3. And in at least 60% of all patients did I find intensive detoxification therapies.

These are the three really important points, the central thread or continuity that can be found in these patients that have survived cancer in the final stage. I will now briefly go over these points.

Eat Right (Nutrition)

The first one is diet and nutrition. If anyone says there is no cancer diet, give him my telephone number. That is a lie. There are very well cancer diets. I have shaken the hands of many people who thanks to an extreme dietary change became well. And if anyone comes, any of these much too clever professors, and goes "Cancer diets are nonsense", send him to me. I can prove the opposite. I have collected enough cases and I know these patients personally.

When we talk of nutrition, we naturally also talk about getting energy. We must understand that we have three ways and means of getting energy into our bodies:

(1) The first means is the light. Light is naturally our number 1 source of energy. Of that I am 100% sure.
Compare Healing Cancer With Light. In fact, daylight can be of decisive help in turning around desperate cases, see Dr. Budwig’s Treatment Advice for Very Ill Cancer Patients.

(2) The second way is organic nutrition. I emphasize the word organic, of course, because it is of no avail to eat this [hamburger] stodge. Because there is nothing in it anymore. On the contrary, when you eat this, you lose energy every time, which you then have to compensate for.
Compare Nutrition.

(3) Either through going out into the light, or through a third possibility which you have, can you let energies flow into your body, namely your thoughts.

Think about the last time that you were in love. Maybe some time has gone by since then but you can surely remember it. My goodness, how we felt, didn’t we? Wasn't it fantastic? Yes - but what was it? Did our DNA change? Did our cell respiration change? No, nothing changed. The East Indians would say our chakras were open. Something in our body was open so that the energy that is there could flow again.

That is the secret of health, not only to produce energy but also to let the energy flow. That means our thoughts, our mental-spiritual side is enormously important.
Compare Mind, Energetics and Spirituality.

Back to nutrition. Of all nutritional theories that I have investigated, the one in first place is

Dr. Johanna Budwig
Dr. Johanna Budwig will be 93 years old in September [2001], still lives in Freudenstadt, Germany, and is one, as the saying goes, crazy scientist, who in my opinion has found something phenomenal. She discovered, you see, that the mixing of unsaturated fatty acids with sulphur, more correctly amino acids, sulphur-containing amino acids such as cysteine and methionine, produces a new substance which makes the fat water soluble.

It makes a big, big difference whether you eat the flaxseed oil just as it is, or whether you mix it with sulphur [proteins]. That is really the secret.

I had the luck through thousands of so-called coincidences, that she allowed me to investigate all her cases of the last thirty years, and nowhere in the world have I found not even remotely such fantastic cases as with Dr. Budwig. It’s phenomenal.

People in a coma, who received her so-called Electron Differential Oils [Eldi oil], and who were only massaged with this oil, did again awake from their coma. They were able to eat again and they walk around normally today. It is simply phenomenal.

Therefore, if anyone argues, a diet like the Oil-Protein Diet [Budwig Diet] or the Gerson Diet is all nonsense, this person has no idea. Simply ask him, ‘how many patients do you know who became healthy thanks to a nutritional change?’ He will tell you, ‘None’. Is that the right discussion partner for such a subject? I think not.

Therefore, once more. I can really only recommend to everyone, if you don't know Dr. Budwig, if you don't know the Oil-Protein Diet, that is the absolute basis of the nutritional therapy for cancer patients.

But not only for cancer patients but also for heart patients (interjection from the audience) Yes, very briefly to your question (question presumably about diabetes).

With diabetes I think, there will soon be a better solution, namely that there will soon be no diabetic anymore in the world. But I can tell you one thing, a very nice side effect with many cancer patients which I have seen, who have injected insulin for years and who went then on the Oil-Protein Diet, that they afterwards did not need to inject insulin anymore.[1]
Compare Budwig Diet.

That is also so by

For all who don't know Gerson, Gerson is almost nothing more than drinking thirteen different freshly pressed juices a day, plus three vegetarian meals, plus potassium infusions. It is simply a case to remove the sodium from the cells and to get more potassium into the cells. That is a theory from Dr. Max Gerson.

There is a book, as far as I know a good one, from Waldhausen Verlag, "50 geheilte Fälle, Dr. Max Gerson" (A Cancer Therapy: Results of Fifty Cases and the Cure of Advanced Cancer). There are many possibilities to find out more information about it on the Internet.
Compare Gerson Diet.

There are also still two [German edition] books from Dr. Budwig available. One of them is called ‘Krebs, das Problem und die Lösung’ (released in English as Cancer — The Problem and the Solution) and the other is called ‘Die Öl-Eiweiß-Kost’ (The Oil-Protein Diet) and I hope that a [fourth] book will be republished soon, ‘Das Fett-Syndrom’ (The Fat Syndrome). That is the most scientific book she wrote.

Elimination (Detoxification)

The second point which I found is detoxification. Detoxification actually covers two points.

(1) The first is naturally to avoid toxins and poisons. I believe I don't have to add much to it here at the Clark Symposium because it is nicely covered in the ‘Clark Basics Packet’.

  • Food,
  • cosmetics,
  • toothpaste,
    Compare Toothpaste: hazardous to dental and bodily health? Toothpaste ingredients which could harm your teeth, gums or body.
  • naturally the entire range of AMFs (Amplitude Modulated Frequencies),
  • and what I notice again and again, even in the alternative scene there are hardly any women who do not use toxic lipstick without knowing what is in them. For your patients it is very important.

(2) And the second point which naturally belongs to detoxification, is not to add any toxins in future.

  • The most important point is definitely diet. I don't think it needs any further belabouring. That is the absolute point. We poison ourselves today with what we eat. And I think it is better not to eat than all this rubbish that one can buy today.
  • The other point like with [Dr. Hulda] Clark, are the teeth. Here too I believe I don't need to talk much about it, because you all know that teeth are phenomenally important.
    Notes by Healing Cancer Naturally: Compare Lothar Hirneise's observations re the occasionally "miraculous" effect of removing root-canalled teeth mentioned on Natural Cancer Pain Management & Relief: Medication Alternatives under "Dental detox". Also see Dr. Hulda Clark on dental detox: guidelines for a healthy, toxin-free mouth.
    For information on virtually free and nearly fail-safe toothache relief and natural help for teeth without dentists or toxic dental materials and invasive/destructive procedures, see Healing Teeth Naturally.
  • Heat is a very, very good way to expel poisons.
    Also compare Fever and the healing of cancer.
  • All the parasite cleanses, of course;
  • Colon cleansing
  • Eldi oils (Electron Differential Oils, an important part of the Budwig Protocol) from Frau Dr. Budwig;
  • People should drink a great lot of water. We could talk for hours about water as the speaker before me has said. I can only concur.
  • Trampoline (rebounder) muscle training and
  • Out into the light, out into the light. Not only Dr. Budwig, the late professor Julius Hackethal M.D. sent his patients every day into the sun as well. He would say, five minutes on each side, and whenever possible, twice daily.

    Unfortunately we have this new phenomenon today that the sun is suddenly supposed to be bad for you: it causes skin cancer and all that nonsense.

    Forget it. We are all children of the light, we need the light. We need no sunburn, with that I agree, but we definitely need light. Go outside. We don't need the sun, we need light. Even if it’s raining today, go outside. And tell this to your patients. Even when they are in a coma must they be wheeled out. You must go twice daily into the light.

I am coming to the most important point: energy work. I divide it into mental and spiritual energy work. What did I discover with cancer patients? Naturally, you begin meditating and reflecting about life, ‘why do I have cancer and what is the purpose of my life, why am I on this earth’, and so on and so forth. But I noticed something else, I call it

System change: We all live in Systems, in our marriage, in our house, in our job, etc. Many, many, many of these cancer patients made system jumps. They kicked their husband in the butt and threw him out. They quit their job, they moved, they not only moved their bed [see Geopathic Stress], they even moved out of their apartment, they went to other countries.

Does it mean that you have to do all of these things? I don't know. Quite honestly, I don't know. But I can tell you from my experience, it’s just remarkable to what extent people changed their life before they were in a position to get well.

Dr. Bodo Köhler wrote in his book about light that he was almost sure that he could heal any cancer patient. How? ‘I take him by the hand and fly him to an oasis in Africa. Let’s see whether the tumor can survive this.’

Now what happens in an oasis? The sun? - sure, the sun can help. But something else is more important, when you have cancer and you fly to an oasis in Africa you have more or less left all the systems in which you live here. And this makes it difficult for a tumor to survive in your body."
Compare Dr. Ryke Geerd Hamer’s German New Medicine®, Energetics, Geopathic Stress & Cancer, Mind, Emotions, Edgar Cayce's Perspective on Cancer and The Edgar Cayce Readings on the Causes & Therapy of Cancer. The reader’s special attention is drawn to the often powerful emotional and “energetic” healing tool of EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique). For a first impression what EFT can accomplish, read Stage 3 uterine cancer remission testimonial: healed via EFT, healthy diet and detoxification.

Lothar Hirneise concludes:

"There is no spontaneous remission, there are only people who positively changed their life and regained their health that way."

Note by Healing Cancer Naturally: While I agree with most of Lothar Hirneise's statements, it must be added here that there ARE spontaneous remissions on record, where the person concerned didn't change anything but was spontaneously healed, see for instance Spiritual cancer healing testimonials.

Wilhelm H. adds: “It is no secret that I believe that the Budwig Protocol is the best approach to cancer in existence, still, I felt uplifted by this presentation, especially since it is from a man who looked at [many] approaches to cancer and then came out with the highest marks for Dr. Budwig. It is additional proof that we have something very special here.”
