This is a testimonial for alternative cancer treatments from an Australian named Paul. He is 66 years old at the time of the video, and worked as an architect before he was not able to pursue his career anymore.
Paul was diagnosed with a non-Hodgkins lymphoma around 1997. He said that it was a small cell, low grade, slow-growing type of cancer. His physicians told him that his cancer would not respond to any forms of radiation or chemotherapy. This meant that Paul had no choice but to pursue alternative cancer treatment methods. He reports that he is happy that he did not do any traditional cancer treatment methods (i.e., chemotherapy, radiation or surgery).
His wife, Cheryl, helped him a lot. She is the one who did most of the hard study and research on alternative cancer treatments. She was very tenacious in her study. In short, he went to a health retreat.
He was placed in a 10 day cleansing program that included juice fasting and a special diet that was based around vegetarian recipes. Paul had to totally cut out all animal products from his diet. He also drank lots of pure water between meals. The goal of all of this was to clean his body of the toxic overload that was one of the biggest causes of his cancer. It was also designed to rebuild and strengthen his immune system. His regimen also included a lot of supplements–vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
In the first year of his treatment, he consumed a lot of live juices like carrot juice, celery juice, and green powders with barley and wheat grass twice a day. He took flax seed oil (2 tablespoons per day), bee pollen for its antioxidant activity, sea minerals (which were from the health retreat, which worked good). There were also colloidal minerals that he used after leaving the health retreat. In fact, he said that these minerals had a more powerfully positive effect on his health than the minerals he took from the health retreat. He also included pine bark extract (also known as pycnogenol) and grape seed extract. He also included essential fatty acids in his supplement regimen.
Cheryl said that he didn’t add the laetrile/vitamin B-17/amygdalin to his supplement regimen until about 3 years after his diagnosis. This was only because they didn’t learn of it until this time. He actually took apricot kernels. He started with 5 apricot kernels per day, and worked his way up to 30 kernels per day. At present, he takes a maintenance dose of 12 kernels per day. His health greatly improved when he added the apricot kernels to his supplementation.
Paul’s oncologist told him not to get a CAT scan because it would expose him to more radiation. His condition is stabilized. He goes to his general practitioner every six months for a health checkup to make sure that he’s doing ok. His lymph nodes and spleen are normal size. If they increase in size, this would be a sign that his cancer was getting out of control.
In this testimonial, it must be stated that Paul had time because his cancer was a slow-growing cancer. Fast growing cancers require more aggressive treatments and strategies because time is not on the side of the patient in these cases.
Although this is an anecdotal testimonial, it can be instructive because of the positive benefits that the patient got from taking these steps in eradicating his cancer. It technically is not ‘evidence’, but it definitely worked for Paul. Some of the principles that he used should be of value to the majority of cancer patients.
