Metastasised kidney cancer

Patient back to normal with supplements, fresh juices and low-sugar diet

Copyright Healing Cancer Naturally © 2014

The following is an uplifting example of how simple it can be to keep malignant tumors (and in this case even metastases) in check, here by using a combination of supplements. It is excerpted with permission from the cancer help book "Natural Treatment of Cancer: Background Information and Therapies"[1].

This case was originally reported in the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine, volume 22, p. 54:

"Dr Hoffer (a medical giant)

Abram Hoffer, M.D., Ph.D. had a 83 year old patient with metastasised kidney cancer and she was able to lead a normal life, after:

  • eating less sugar [better still, absolutely no sugar]
  • two grams ascorbic acid in juice [fresh vegetable juice], in spreaded doses six times per day [build up to 12 grams per day over a number of days]
  • Niacin (vitamin B3), 200mg after meals, three times per day
  • B complex, 100mg per day
  • Folic acid, 5mg per day
  • Selenium, 200mcg per day."

On vitamin C, selenium, fresh vegetable juices, and a sugar-free diet against cancer

by Healing Cancer Naturally

Vitamin C both by oral and IV administration has a long history of application as an "alternative" cancer treatment. More at Intravenous Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) Infusion in Oncologic Treatment, Oral Megadoses of Vitamin C and Cancer and Higher vitamin C (ascorbic acid) blood levels show protective effect against tumors.

Selenium's positive influence on cancer has been studied quite extensively, e.g. in a landmark 10-year JAMA study which showed a reduction both in cancer incidence and mortality thanks to selenium. More at On selenium and cancer.

Fresh vegetable juices are such as important factor in health and healing cancer that this site has dedicated an entire section to juicers and juicing.

Finally, the link between sugar consumption and cancer seems so well-established that the expression "sugar feeds cancer" has become household.
