Cancer Fighting Food, Supplements, What I Did

The Top Four Cancer-Fighting Spices

chris beat cancer

Oregano, Garlic, Cayenne, Turmeric

These four cancer-fighting spices have powerful health benefits and were part of my daily regimen to heal cancer without chemo. They are common, but not commonly found in American cuisine, so I had to be very deliberate about adding them to my food. I took copious amounts of these four spices and still do today.

They are (organically grown): Oregano, Garlic, Cayenne Pepper, and Turmeric.

The Turmeric plant is a relative of Ginger and has been used for thousands of years in Indian Ayurvedic medicine (the science of long life) as an antiseptic and antibacterial agent to treat infection, inflammation, wound healing, poor digestion, etc. And as you may know, it is also a staple ingredient in Indian, Persian, Thai, and Malaysian Cuisine.

Indians eat a mostly plant-based diet, have some of highest spice consumption in the world, and significantly lower cancer rates than Americans. They have five times less breast cancer, ten times less colorectal cancer, and twelve times less lung cancer on average.

Turmeric is the business because it contains the powerful cancer-fighting polyphenol Curcumin.

Curcumin has been clinically shown to inhibit growth of various cancer cells including: Bone Cancer, Breast Cancer, Brain Tumors, Colon, Liver, Pancreatic, Stomach, Bladder, Kidney, Prostate, Leukemia, Ovarian, Melanoma, and more!

Curcumin has the ability to block every stage of cancer development, from cell mutation, to tumor growth, to metastasis. It can also kill many different types of cancer cells by triggering apoptosis (programmed cell death) without affecting normal cells. It is because of these known benefits, that curcumin has been the subject of cancer research for many decades.

There are hundreds of published studies demonstrating the anti-cancer power of curcumin, but because the pharmaceutical industry hasn’t figured out how to make a patentable FDA-approved drug out of it, curcumin cannot be used in cancer treatment. This is the reality of “evidence-based medicine”, ignoring all evidence that cannot produce patented profitable drugs.

Curry Powder (shown above) is a common ingredient in indian and asian cuisine, is typically a mixture of coriander, turmeric, cumin, fenugreek, and red pepper. I love turmeric and curry powder and I put it on everything. Any time you put turmeric on a dish make sure to add a little black pepper, it increases your body’s absorption of turmeric by about 2000%.

Love the stuff. It’s delicious!

Oregano has extremely high levels of antioxidants and antimicrobial compounds. It is a powerful parasite fighter. One teaspoon of oregano has the same antioxidant power (ORAC) of two cups of red grapes. It contains the phytochemical Quercetin, which is known to slow cancer growth and also promote apoptosis (there’s that word again). And on top of that Oregano is a good source of Vitamin K and Iron.

Garlic is the most powerful anti-cancer spice. Studies all over the world have shown it to lower the risk of developing all types of cancers especially colon, stomach, intestinal, and prostate cancer. It has strong antibacterial properties as well as the ability to block formation and halt activation of cancer-causing substances. It can also enhance DNA repair, slow down cell reproduction, and like Turmeric and Oregano, induce apoptosis. It stops cancer growth and kills cancer cells.

The World Health Organization recommends adults have a daily dose of fresh garlic (approximately one clove).  So not only did I put garlic powder on everything I ate, but I also chopped it up raw garlic cloves into little bits and swallowed them like pills.  Did I reek of garlic?  Oh yeah. Did I care?  No I did not.

Cayenne Pepper contains Capsaicin, which is the active compound that sets your lips, tongue, and everything else on fire.  Turns out Capsaicin is also the stuff kills cancer cells, causing…can you guess it?

Cayenne is also a key ingredient in The Master Cleanse for its detox abilities.

The Hotter the Better: If you can handle the heat, Habanero Peppers contain 4-6 times more Capsaicin than Cayenne with a Scoville rating of 200,000 units.  Yeeoow!!!

The first time I ate a super hot chili pepper was on a dare when I was 20, my friend Brad Stanfill bit half and I bit the other half. It was so hot I couldn’t think straight. I don’t know if it triggered endorphins or adrenaline or what, but we somehow ended up lying on our backs in the grass in our front yard until it wore off. Good times.

Here’s a super easy way to add more spice to your life: I use all four of these cancer-fighting spices in a salad dressing I make from scratch. Recipe here.

And there is a 5th cancer fighting spice that I put in my veggie juice: Turmeric’s cousin ginger.

I save a lot of money buying spices in bulk:
Organic Turmeric Root Powder
Organic Curry Powder

If you are considering supplementation 
My two favorite curcumin supplements are BCM-95 Curcumin and Theracurmin, and a really potent oil of oregano supplement is Biotics Research A.D.P.

    I really recommend that anyone wanting to benefit from garlic googles Allicin Max, a patented British product that delivers the equivalent of 40 cloves of garlic in one capsule, without odour! Amazing amazing product. A gel and cream are also available. Try Amazon (or Boots if you’re in the UK).

  • Howard

    Hi Chris! You have made a wonderful blog here. I’m so glad you have shared your story and knowledge.
    One thing I thought to point out that you didn’t, is that all of these spices are most efficacious when used fresh, i.e. your eating a fresh clove of garlic daily, or mixing these spices fresh into a smoothie. Many of the properties are lost when dried or processed.

  • LuisFA

    You, sir, are a CRIMINAL. You are condemning gullible people to death by persuading them not to seek expert medical treatment. And, it seems, making money in the process.

    You are despicable shit. You should be in jail.

    • You really should think this through.
      Cancer is the number one killer in the world because expert medical treatment isn’t working.
      In the meantime, doctors and drug companies are generating hundreds of billions in revenue each year.
      But sharing my healing story, other people’s healing stories, and info on nutrition and natural therapies makes me a “criminal”?
      Wake up.

        Please research MTHFR, you seem to have a great audience and it could really help a lot of people. It is the science behind why some of us don’t detoxify properly. MTHFR.net is a good place to start. You will be blown away and want to get your genetic information. Our world is toxic and we have to know how to help ourselves. Western medicine is lagging behind in the science of nutrition and poisoning us with pharmaceuticals. Let’s help each other help ourselves.

  • Hi, I really enjoyed the read, thank you. I didn’t add spices to my diet simply because I didn’t think about it, but will certainly give it a ‘whirl’ now. I have a different diet, that I ‘think’ worked for me.

  • Right on brother!
    There are many treatments that help us heal that we can use alongside conventional ones?–and they don’t make us sick.
    Thankfully people are waking up to the fact that we need to heal ourselves…it’s not up to the doctors.

    Many western MD’s are now prescribing eastern forms of medicine because they realize they work!

    Can’t wait to read more of your stuff.
    Thanks for your hard work Chris

    Hi Chris
    Thanks to all this great

  • Patricia Livingston

    I was diagnosed in October with ovarian cancer. Immediate surgery was required due to the tumor bursting. I’ve had 3 of 6 chemo treatments. I do intend to follow your diet as well. I am excited to have found your site!

    My question is do you think the I could juice most of the vegetables you have in your sald and still get the same results? I’m not a big vegetable eater so I’m hoping by adding theser to my current juicing it would give me the same results as eating them.

    I look forward to your response.

    I had a “wart” show up on my face practically overnnight. My Dr wasnt interested but it got so big, about 5 mm I felt I had to assume it needed treatment. I made a paste of turmeric and canola oil, put it on andput a piece of tape over it. 10 days of that and it is almost gone. I’ve got some photos to show it. One interesting thing, my skin got only a slight yellow stain but the growth itself absorbed so much curcumin it turned a striking yellow. From now on i’m taking a gel cap full and eating curries every day.

    Great blog, thanks. You got to Fight for your Right to be healthy.

  • Alexandra Cedeño

    Hello, greate to read about your story. I’m from Venezuela and went through breast cancer therapy last year, was diagnosed when I was only 27 years old. Wish I had been as brave as you were and refused chemo, now i´m dealing with the side effects. I became vegetarian as part of my treatment. Agree about the Oregano, Cayenne and Turmeric (excelent spices) but not about the garlic. My doctor (naturist) told me not to eat it during the first stages of my treatment because it might lead to metastasis. Well, that´s what he said, I just wanted to share it. I’m healthy now by the way. Bless you all.

    I’ve been taking garlic oil capsules for nearly seven years now, one capsule three times a day. Dosage is important. I have not been sick since I started taking garlic oil. I eat a lot of Indian food. I started taking it to clear up thrush, I had to quit caffeine and chocolate for a few weeks but the thrush cleared up. After doing more research and finding the odd blog like this one I found that garlic also boosts the immune system. So much so that I have not been sick for seven years. No colds, no flu, nothing. Occasionally I catch something, a virus but all I suffer from is a bit of a mucus after about three hours, I take a garlic oil pill and 20 minutes later the mucus is cleared up. I have been taking partially de-oderized garlic oil. I did get hayfever for the first time two years ago in March, but managed to miss it last year by being in a more damp country for spring. I tell a lot of people about the benefits of garlic oil, I have converted a few. Strangely I get annoyed when people tell me they have the flu, “why?” I ask, “is this the dark ages? Take some garlic oil!”
