Natural Therapies, Supplements, What I Did

My Anti-Cancer Supplement Protocol Recommended By Nutritionist John Smothers

A major ally in my quest to heal cancer naturally was Clinical Nutritionist / Master Herbalist John Smothers at Integrative Wellness & Research Center in Memphis, TN.

He was the first person to tell me I was doing the right thing by rejecting chemo and radically changing my diet and lifestyle. Words cannot explain how exciting that was for me…
Along with a strict anti-cancer diet he recommended a lot of different supplements to support healing in my body.

As you can imagine, the question about supplements comes up a lot.
“What did you you take, what brands, how much, how often?”
I’ve been hesitant to get into those details because some of the supplements I took were specific to my body’s needs and may not be beneficial for every person with cancer.

So recently I sat down with John and asked him to put together an updated cancer supplement protocol that I could share with you.

These are the key herbal and medical food supplements that he recommends for all his clients with cancer (including me), along with strict diet modification.

Remember, a radical change of diet and lifestyle is foundational to healing. Supplements are “supplemental”.  The right supplements can provide additional support to the healing functions in the body, but if you are not willing to make necessary changes to your diet and lifestyle, supplements won’t do you much good. In other words, if you keep eating processed food, drinking beer, smoking cigarettes and not moving your body, you are not likely to see much benefit from supplements. Taking supplements without a radical change of diet and lifestyle is like fighting a house fire with a squirt gun…

Ok I think I’ve made my point.

The following is a “general protocol” in the sense that these supplements were selected to address issues common to all cancer patients: liver detoxification, candida/fungal overgrowth, parasites, suppressed immune function, and nutritional deficiencies. However, each individual may have specific needs that may not be addressed in this protocol and may benefit from addtitional supplementation. (I took a lot more than just these.)
Also a few of the brand names and formulations have changed since I took them in 2004.
Bottom line: If I walked into his office with cancer today, these are what we would start with.

Many of these are nutraceutical grade supplements only available through healthcare practitioners and a few sources online. I have to be careful about making any specific claims about these products, so I used the manufacturers product descriptions and added a little clarification where necessary.

PHASE I SUPPLEMENTS

 

Metagenics UltraClear RENEW (Liver Detox)

The is a protein shake designed to support Phase I and Phase II liver detoxification.

Science-based metabolic detoxification programs are often recommended as a first approach to help clean out the environmental “junk” that may be affecting your health—or causing you pain. Some evidence suggests that certain heavy metals, such as the mercury in dental amalgam, may increase pain and fatigue in those who are already chemically sensitive.
UltraClear RENEW is formulated to help relieve pain and stiffness, and also provides research-based nutrients to support important detoxification activities, such as heavy metal metabolism.

New Eden Nutritional Support Formula
(Immune Support)

Formulated by Dr. Reg McDaniel, this is an updated version of a similar product which John and I think may have been one of the most beneficial supplements for boosting my immune system. New Eden is a micronutrient immune support formula from Aloe Leaf, Larch tree, Rice Bran, Cysteine, Soy Lecithin, IP-6, Dioscorea, Omega-3, Citric Acid, Glucosamine, Cherry, Calcium Alumino Silicate.

This mixture of micronutrients returns to the modern diet vital nutrients once found in the family garden and orchard in a more agrarian society. This is a modern application of ancient nutritional traditions and knowledge of nature.

Genes are coded instructions that control cellular syntheses using elements and nutrient molecules to assemble bioactive structure/function compounds that conduct the biochemistry of life. Molecular structure determines the function of bioactive compounds and this requires a supply of specific nutrients to be present in the diet to properly make such substances. Such normal functions include host defense, repair, recovery, structural restitution and homeostasis, i.e. balance and regulation between all cells that support health and improve quality of life.

Biotics Research A.D.P. (Parasite killer)

A patented formulation, proven effective. Utilizing miro-emulsification and delayed release technologies, A.D.P.® delivers standardized oil of oregano throughout the digestive tract where it functions to positively impact intestinal organisms.

When modern researchers attempt to unlock nature’s herbal secrets, they frequently turn to the spices and herbs that have been used for centuries to add zest to a wide range of foods.  Long before the advent of refrigeration it was recognized that herbs and culinary spices could slow food spoilage – natural antimicrobial principles were obviously at work.  Food scientists have become increasingly interested in essential oils and aromatic plants. Attempts are being made to identify the active components of essential oils from spices, among them – the oil of oregano.  So far, analysis has revealed several phenolic compounds including Carvacrol, Thymol, Eugenol, 1,8 cineole, as well as Rosmarinic acid and other antioxidants.  Of these compounds Carvacrol and Thymol are believed to have the greatest biological activity. A.D.P.® has been proven effective against yeast and parasites (Patent # 5,955,086).  Further research looking at the mechanism of action is indicating that the active components of oil of oregano adversely affect the ability of various microbial organisms to reproduce.

Biotics Research FC-Cidal (Inhibits Yeast and Fungal Growth)

Supplies a proprietary blend of herbs and herbal extracts to support healthy GI function. Developed in conjunction with Dr. Gary Lasneski, FC-Cidal is an herbal combination designed to support the elimination of fungal or yeast dysbiosis.  French Tarragon contains a complex mixture of almost 50 different compounds which is known to inhibit the growth of several pathogenic bacteria and yeasts.  Indian Tinaspora is a bitter herb that has been found to be inhibitory to both parasites and yeast.  Other herbal extracts, including Horsetail, Olive leaf, Thyme, Stinging Nettle, and Pau D’Arco have all been shown to inhibit fungal, yeast, or bacterial growth, in addition to balancing inflammatory mechanisms and supporting immune function.  Successfully addressing fungal and yeast overgrowth can be challenging, and a three-pronged approach is often necessary: supplementation targeting dysbiosis, an anti-fungal diet, and probiotics to help recolonize the bowel with beneficial flora.

Metagenics Ultra Flora (Probiotics)

Broad spectrum probiotic formula for intestinal health and immune support with a proprietary blend of 30 Billion live organisms. Beneficial bacteria in the gut are an important part of the immune system. Anti-biotics and chemical food additives can destroy these good bacteria.

    Would love the dosage chart thanks. You are truly an inspiration. I do not have Cancer, but I had an active Epstein Barr virus a couple of year ago that left my immune system weakened. My conventional doctors are clue less with supplements and nutrition. Thanks

    • Vindi says:

      My husband also suffered with Epstein Barr syndrome. A good regime of a food source MultiVitamin, Oil of Oregano, 8 hras of sleep per night, and a diet without food chemicals. MSG & HFCS are killers. Read labels….
      if it says “autolyzed yeast”, leave it alone. That’s MSG…stay away from GMO’s as much as possible. Eat organic…he started feeling better within 2 weeks of this regime. No more “flare ups” with wanting to sleep constantly or feeling achey & horrible all the time. Hope this was helpful. Good Luck.

    • Louisa says:

      Susan ,

      You can try and olive leaf extract. Read about it and ask if it’s o.k.with your medication if you take some. Good luck !
      Louisa

  2. Natures herbs , concentrates, and whole organic foods is what our bodies immune system needs for any health crisis. A Nature Path ND is your best friend and the Doctor in you is your birth given Immune system asking for your support . Barry Anderson aka Barry Gourmet & Raw

  3. Bob says:

    These are great! I’ll take the list to my next appointment with my nutritionist. We’ve used some of the other Biotics supplements with great results.

    So far I’ve avoid chemo and radiation for my rectal cancer, which is stage 4. My ph is now a solid 8.2, and I’m feeling great! You’re one of my primary sources of information and inspiration!

  4. valerie warwick says:

    Thank you so much for posting this Chris.When you are diagnosed with cancer it is so confusing. So this is a great place to start. I will share this with people who are interested. BTW,I just got a rebounder yesterday!! I’m so excited! Decided
    to get one after seeing your video! Valerie, Warwick RN ONC

  5. Kristi Cooke, NTP says:

    Hi. Excellent protocol! I am a holistic nutritional therapist. I am quite familiar with most of these products, but I would love more info on Dr. John’s LY-CA Master Extract. Can you tell me about it

    Thank you.

  6. Cindy McBrayer says:

    Hi- I do not have cancer but are some of the supplements mentioned here good to take even though a person is cancer free- perhaps to avoid getting the big C. thanks.

    • june says:

      I don’t have cancer but am really interested in the supplements to stay health
      Will you send me or post a list
      thanks Chris love your blog

  7. Sharron says:

    Just wanted to say thank you, thank you Chris for all the information and effort you put into this site. I know sometimes you must feel overwhelmed with working and keeping his going, but you provide such valuable information I want you to know you are appreciated. I to had bowel cancer with lymph node involvement. However I went the chemo route, and it wen o my liver twice and lungs. All surgically removed and now I am wizer and no more chemo. Eating healthfully, juicing, and this list of supplements is some more great info. Don’t know how much of it is available in Australia but I will look into it. Once again, thaks

  8. Hi Chris, thank you for your posts and esp for this valuable article. I always pass along your info to a friend who is fighting cancer. I recently ordered a rebounder thanks to your post about it. Keep up the great work!

  9. Dmitry says:

    Thank you so much for posting this information, Chris.

  10. jeanne says:

    I DO NOT have cancer now so I’m wondering how different I should support my system with supplements. I know you’re main ministry is to those who have cancer so I don’t know if you even want to address that. But I would like to know how differently I would approach it.

    • barb says:

      Good question jeanne – These are some great sounding supplements.

      I do many protocols myself- for prevention. I once had a little melanoma, so any thing to assist immunity/health is just a good thing to do.

      Diet (organic ONLY – NO GMO/NO gluten, sugar, etc) and maybe some of the supps that assists with digestion, perhaps? Vitamin C is so important. Keeping bad fungal growth down is good, too!

      I take iodine with selenium for my amalgams. Fish oils and probiotics. Many antioxidants, as well.

      Good Health to you all :)

      • Adie says:

        Barb,
        I had melanoma twice. See Best on Earth products. I take black salve and bloodroot caps every day to prevent reoccurence.

    • Chris Wark says:

      Hi Jeanne, any of these supplements can be taken as preventative for a season.
      I don’t take them all now. I rotate through them from time to time.
      If any of the descriptions or benefits sound appealing to you, go for it.
      :)

      • facundo says:

        hi chris i read and see the schedule you post but can’t understand if i take all these suplements for a week or for a month because the prices are high if buy all togheter ,and last only a month or 3 weeks …how much is the cost of all togheter you have any idea?
        thanks i try to start this for my wife she have a melanoma in the lymph nodes and comeback in the chest….thnaks

        • Chris Wark says:

          Hi Facundo. Yes they are all meant to be taken together indefinitely, and yes all together they will be expensive.
          You can click the links to price them all out. If money is tight you can buy the ones that you think might be most beneficial for your situation.

          • Facundo the Argentinian guy says:

            Hi thanks for your response….I started with the coffee enemas but I found this article and I’m very confusing…http://www.drlwilson.com/articles/HEALING%20LIFESTYLE.htm
            They say if you do the coffee enemas don’t eat raw food only cooked foods …..is the opposite of gerson therapy…do you know something about it?
            You try this before?
            My English is not too good sorry for that …thanks again….

  11. sans says:

    My son is a long term (27 years) brain cancer (medulloblastoma) survivor. He had a stroke 4 years ago (an oversight of the medical team).
    I adopted a protocol with diet and supplements to assist him in healing. Thanks for sharing Chris.

  12. Demi says:

    Hi Chris,

    I wanted to order the New Eden Nutritional Formula but noticed it contains soy lecithin (as per their website). I was always under the impression that we should stay away from soy lecithin, I also suffer from Hashimoto’s and was told to stay away from soy in general. Do you have any thoughts on this or more information?

    Thank you for all the hard work you put into this blog.

    Demi

  13. Judy says:

    Chris,
    I am 41 yo and had mastectomy for BC a year ago. I refused the recommended chemo and have had “no evidence of disease” since then. I saw you read George Malkmus’ book (who started Hallelujah Diet) and wondered if Barley Max was ever a part of your routine and if so, for how long. Also wondering how long after your diagnosis, you tapered off on 64 oz of veggie juices, and how many you do now for maintenance…

  14. Deb says:

    Chris,
    I am 58, rarely go to doctors and have been vegan for over 15 years. In 2009, discovered cyst in left breast after having a temp. crown for 2 teeth, side by side. The temp had grown bacteria because it leaked and the dentist had to scrape black stuff and spray before putting the permanent crown in place. So I was doing Essiac Tea because of 4″ by 5″ cyst in left breast that I was afraid would develop into breast cancer. Do not know if connected or not. But, in Nov 2012 started turning yellow and went to the ER for tests. I had a 1 inch tumor at head of pancreas and wish I had not had the Whipple surgery performed on me now. They removed the tumor and one malignant lymph node along with the gall bladder, 1/2 pancreas and the duodeum. I refused chemo and radiation but was sent home with 3 drugs which I had never taken in the past. I got off the Oxycodone 1st, then the Reglan after 30 days and then the Protonix last. The surgeon said I would have to take the Protonix 40 mg for life. After research online, quit it cold turkey after 1 1/2 mos. Have lost from 145 lbs. down to 126 and am 5’9″ tall. Eating alkalizing diet now because afraid acidic foods was what set my intestines on fire after eating but may have been the Turmeric Supreme capsule. I want to make sure cancer does not return anywhere else but am having trouble knowing what to eat to get weight back. Went gluten-free, sugar and starch free on top of vegan. And was told by an ND that I needed to avoid foods on the AB+ blood type list. Am interested in the ketogenic diet. Can you help or put me in touch with a site or person that knows what to do for someone that had the Whipple surgery? Thanks!

    • Sophie says:

      Just a thought…why not reach out to Chris’ nutritionist, John Smothers? Here’s his website: http://www.integrativewellness.org/

    • April says:

      I was wondering how you are doing and if you found a good diet that has helped you reclaim your health after the whipple & gall bladder surgery. I had my gall bladder removed and now have pancreatitis then skin cancer,now breast cancer that spread to my spine. My digestion is the worst.

  15. Pinky says:

    Chris, Thank you so much for the supplement list. I did notice that you had 3 supplements listed on your Dosage Schedule Sheet that you did not list on the website. (Transfer Factor, Reconstat & Thercumin)
    Would you recommend that those be taken too, or should those only be taken under a doctor’s advice? Thanks

  16. Renee says:

    Hi Chris,

    Just before I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, I was let go from my job. I have no savings from being a single mom for most of my adult life. I am on disability now and cannot afford all of these supplements. What would you suggest as all together these are too expensive for me. Is there a certain one or few I could take for ovarian cancer?

    • Terry J says:

      Renee,
      Since you do not have the finances to purchase the items listed, the Ketogenic Diet may be your answer to get rid of the cancer. This will give you the starting info that you need:

    • Trish says:

      Hi Renee,
      Cured myself of cancer approx 15 yrs ago with diet changes, pure water, rebounding, cleansing and detoxing and supplements just like Chris did. I did not have any other help from doctors, nutritionists, etc. I also could not afford the expenseive neutraceuticals and used supplements from Puritan’s Pride at that time but have since switched to Swanson Vitamins. Go online to either of these websites and READ LABELS. You CAN find what you need more affordably.

      • Renee says:

        Thanks Trish and Terry! i really appreciate your help and information.

        • Renee says:

          Hi Chris,

          Besides these supplements that you have listed here in your post, did you take any multivitamins?

      • Renee says:

        Hi Trish,

        If it isn’t any trouble, could you tell me which supplements you used in place of the expensive ones that Chris used. I am just confused on what to get.

  17. Pinky says:

    Chris, We’ve purchased all the supplements you’ve recommended and have stared taking them. But I noticed on the Wellness Supplement Schedule, that next to ADP/Biotics and FC Cidal/Biotics the first column says “3 months.”
    What does that mean?
    Thanks so much for all your help! It is invaluable.

  18. Sue C says:

    Chris,
    I’m thinking about getting some of these for my husband who has/had colon cancer. I can only afford two right now, which two would you buy if you could only afford two? Notice I am not asking you which ones I should buy…just which would YOU buy :) Also I was surprised there was no Vitamin D3 listed as they always talk about that one. Possibly one of these has the vitamin D3 in it? Thank you SO much. Sue

  19. Andrea says:

    Hi,

    I am so happy to hear about someone beating this terrible disease. I am an oncology nurse from Croatia/Europe and I know what mess chemo does to many of my patients, even to us nurses who work with it. I do not believe in chemo myself but there is not much alternative here and many people are not as brave as you. They trust doctors too much sometimes. Thumbs up for you!!!!

  20. Maria says:

    Thanks for a great website. So now you and Kris Carr are my heroes and most favorite folks!

    Hi Chris,
    Congratulations on finding the truth about cancer treatment and making choices that were right for you. I’m curious if your treatment included any medicinal mushroom supplements for immunity support and if you did any research on them?
    Thanks, Therese

    • Chris Wark says:

      Hi Therese
      Yes I took copious amounts of Garden of Life’s RM-10 mushroom supplements
      9 per day.
      There are other good ones I like: Host Defense and Maitake D-Fraction

  23. Litz says:

    Hi Chris.

    I just want to know if it’s safe to take these supplements even if a person doesn’t have cancer?

    Continue this great advocacy! You are such an inspiration! Thanks!

  24. joy verning says:

    Thanks for the information! I just received a bad report for my niece who is 39. She has colon cancer in stage 4/5 and is only giving 4 mo’s to live. I found your site when trying to do research to help her. She doesn’t want the surgery or chemo, but she wants to live. She has no money, but I and her sister want to do what we can to help her. So, hopefully, after I talk with her, I can get these supplements to get her started. Do you know of any great nutritionist in the St Louis/Metro East area? Thank You!

  25. InHISnamealways says:

    After being diagnosed with breast cancer at the ripe old age of 34, I regrettably took the advice of my Dr. and proceeded on the path of surgeries, radiation and the always popular tamoxifen. After 4 years of traditional “medicine”, I, unfortunately was diagnosed AGAIN this year which led to a painful mastectomy. After much prayer, I vowed to follow a natural, God led approach to my healing. My question to you, Chris is in addition to this anti cancer protocol, what other supplements do you take?? I am trying to educate myself , but the information is voluminous, confusing & contradictory! Please advise and THANK YOU for your site & invaluable information!

  26. chris says:

    I am on your site a lot..whenever I start to wonder if I am doing the right thing. I have 2 doctors..an ND in another state that is new..only been in practice for 5 years so I am not overly confident of her.She does not believe in IV VitC or enemas so already we aren’t in agreement. I also go to an osteopathic dr in my city that is alternative. But he is so expensive and at my last visit ( which costs me $360 per visit) he told me he doesn’t want to start IV VitC till I do his clay pack detox which is $150. I don’t have the money for all that. I am doing the Geroon Therapy as much a I can..but what I would like to see you write about is your daily routine when you were doing your therapy and how you handled the detox symptoms that can be unpleasant at times!!! thanks, Chris

  27. Darren says:

    just wondering how much does the Dr. John’s Lymph Extract and Dr. John’s LY-CA Master Extract cost.

    thanks

  28. chris says:

    Hey another question. Did you ever have to deal with lymphedema? I have mild lymphedema now. I had a mastectomy and had 10 lymph nodes removed. There are still some cancerous nodes in my chest and above the collarbone. So I suppose they are blocking the flow of lymph. The last thing I want to do is go to my MD and have him tell me once again that I need to consider Chemo and radiation. I was wondering if you..or a woman on here who dealt with this could give me some ideas of what to do. I know about manual massage techniques and rebounding. My OD has a lymphstar machine that is supposed to be helpful. Would like to talk to someone who has dealt with this. Thanks, Chris

    Hi,

    What are the ingredients in the Metagenics – UltraClear RENEW Original?
    Joy

  30. Joy says:

    Hi everyone, I finally found the ingredients online. It took some searching. Joy

  31. Renee says:

    Hi Chris,

    Besides these supplements that you have listed here in your post, did you take any multivitamins?

  32. David says:

    Alkazone is an excellent supplement that will raise your PH simply add 5-6 drops in a glass of water and drink.

    Get litmus strips and test the water before and after… It really works!

    Also taking a supplement that raises glutathione is *must* for almost all cancers. MaxGXL or Immunocal are both legit for this purpose.

    Reishi mushroom is another absolutely AMAZING and is recognized as a legitimate cancer treatment in Japan.

    http://www.scribd.com/doc/5250700/HOW-REISHI-GANODERMA-CURES-CANCER

    How to make your own reishi extract (6-12 months worth)

    Supplies needed: 250-500gram bag of reish, half gallon jar, Vodka

    (1) shred 500g of dried reishi and fill the jar approximately half full.

    (2) Fill to the top with vodka

    (3) Leave this to brew for approximately 5 weeks shaking and stirring periodically.

    (4) Strain the reishi out of this and place the liquid in a bowl. This is your tincture.

    (5) Now take the leftover reishi and put it in a pot with water boil this for about 2 hours to extract the polysaccharides.

    (6) When finished strain the reishi and add the polysaccharide enriched water back to the alcohol tincture.

    (7) Congratulations you’ve just made a potent liquid reishi extract. Get a pipette or take a half teaspoon 3x a day slowly increasing the dose as needed.

  33. Martha Gibson says:

    Chris,
    Thank you! You are an inspiration to me. My son, too, was diagnosed with Stage 3 Colon Cancer almost 5 years ago (we are about to celebrate his 5 yr mark in 2 weeks). He was 22 yrs old just out of college. Today he lives and works in Denver and looks like the epitome of health. I was diagnosed with breast cancer last year, so we are juicing, exercising and trying to live a healthy lifestyle.

    My question is this: The New Eden product for Immune support has Soy Lecithin. We’ve been told to stay away from all soy products as the are GMO’s. Since my cancer is estrogen receptive positive, it especially is not good for me. Is your nutritionist aware of this? Thank you for sharing and God Bless you!

  34. Defi Nopita says:

    Hi Chris. Thank you. you are my inspiration. Thank you for motivating and sharing your story.

  35. Valentina says:

    Hi Chris, You are a wonderful inspiration (I know you hear this a lot). But everything you are doing is helping so many people, I hope you know what a gift that is.
    My dad is fighting Brain Cancer Stage 4 since a month ago, and since he changed his diet we have seen amazing results in his health. For people who are insecure about alternative health, the diet WORKS. It is incredible how much a person can change in so little time. My father couldn’t walk, couldn’t think, was suffering. He has so much strength now. Anyways, the tumor could not be removed with surgery as risks were too high, and we decided to take the natural road because we have always worked with nature and this alternative road is the most logical sound advice we could have heard. I would like to know from the Suplemments’ dosage list what do you mean in the section where it says 3 months for ADP supplement and the other one below it. Should these two be taken only for three months? Thank you again, we follow your site all the time and I will start with the supplements now until we can see a nutritionist that can recommend some things specifically for him. Valentina

    • Chris Wark says:

      That is terrific Valentina! Thank you for sharing this!!!
      Those supplements can be taken for longer than three months.
      The last two supplements listed are typically added after 3 months on the others.

  36. paul says:

    Chris,

    I’m Stage 3 prostate cancer, and have been driven down the ‘urgent surgery, radiotherapy, now hormone treatment’ route 10 months ago when diagnosed.
    Discovering and now understanding your website has been an eye-opener.
    I’m going to ‘near-replicate’ many of the actions you took, as i feel they give me a hope of beating the prognosis i’ve had.
    Just wanted to say thanks for what you have done here, the website, your words, your attitude have made me feel strong and ‘ready to do battle’ with my Cancer.

  37. Lois says:

    I don’t have cancer (as far as I know) but want to get and stay as healthy as I can. I have been working at changing my diet/lifestyle in the last few months with juicing, supplements, cutting out gluten, more walking etc. Thanks for your help and pointers!

    A lot of great information other than Dr. Gonzalez. I believe his opinion is biased from his experience, friendship, with Dr. Atkins. Atkins diet was high in protein and not calorie restricted. I think there is a lot of value in restriction of proteins as well, just look at the results of Dr. Kelly. There is way too much good information and many positive rat model tests to dismiss what Dr. D’Agostino and Dr. Sefried are saying without further research. Personally I am going to try the KDR diet with a lot of low glycemic veggie juicing as well as rebounding using an oxygen concentrator. I have stage four glioblastoma. If the oxygen gives me positive results I plan on building a hyperbaric unit large enough so that I can rebound while using the oxygen concentrator. PS I’m so happy that I was given such a poor prognosis, otherwise I would have tried the chemo and radiation, and more than likely would be just a memory now. After I was diagnosed I went to camelot cancer care and after three rounds of treatment my tumor shrank to 3.5 c.c. from 41.5 c.c when it was discovered. The FDA has since shut them down, which is, or should be a criminal act on their part. I have all of my medical information, diagnosis and prognosis as well as my MRI’s to prove what the treatment did. Now I’m stuck between a rock and a hard place trying to invent my own cure. I wish something could be done about the FDA. They allow all of these new medications that can cause cancer, anal leakage and all kinds of other side effects but won’t allow laetrile. I feel sorry for the people that they have taken this away from. I also feel sorry for the people running the FDA, they will not have a nice after life.
    I’m just digging into all of your information Chris and you should be proud of yourself for helping others.
    Thanks, Chris Scott

      Hi Chris, you are right, Dr. Gonzalez is biased, from his 30 years of experience. He is one of the top alternative cancer MDs in the world using nutritional protocols instead of chemo and radiation. He’s one of the good guys and has helped a lot of people heal. His opinion should not be taken lightly.

      I have a lot of respect for Dr. D’Agostino and Dr. Seyfriend, I am glad they are doing what they are doing, but let’s be very clear, they are researchers and have not cured ANYONE. If you pay close attention to the keto rat studies you will see that “increasing survival” doesn’t mean much, the rats are living a little longer, but still dying. Please think about this critically.
      Why are the researchers adding oxygen therapy?
      Because the keto diet isn’t working on its own.

      I completely support your decision to take your health into your own hands, but please be careful.
      I reversed my position on this because I don’t want to be responsible for people chasing after the latest hyped up protocol when there are many other methods (like Gerson) that have been used to heal cancer successfully for 50+ years. Also you don’t have to invent your own. Take what I did and what all the other survivors in my survivors stories section have done and you will find a lot of common threads. Do those things!

        Great advice, Chris. I love you to pieces. I pray you will become a millionaire as no doubt you would save millions of lives.

        You deserve the best life has to offer and you will be rewarded for your efforts in ways never dreamed of..

        When I was lost, you were there. When I was terrified and depressed, you were there. When I didn’t know if I’d live or die, you were there. When I was completely alone with no support or idea if this would work, YOU WERE THERE.

        Six months out from DMX and NEC with PERFECT blood-work!!

        …and now I’m here too…more present than I’ve ever been and healing my past in this gift called the present moment.

        Thank God and thank you.

        You are my hero.

    Chris,

    I live in a apartment complex in an area where water supply is very dirty, even filters don’t do the job, so I use mainly water from bottles. I feel like it’s the cleanest option of water for intake. Unfortunately the schedule suggests otherwise, no plastic bottled water. Would you happen to have other suggestions as to where or what kind of water I should use or get?

    Thanks!

    Hi Chris
    I have some products from Biotics. My Dr. has a nutritional store in his office and he carries this brand. I’m going to see if any of these are there. Thanks!

    The raw natural vegetables are good. But we need to put on weight. What can we use. We have used all vegan and lost too much weight.

  42. Ed says:

    Thank you for posting this. There is too much conflicting information out there and too many people recommending too many books! I don’t want to read myself into the grave. Thanks for the post and info. ~ Ed

  43. Ed says:

    Just read some disturbing information regarding Metagenics. Does anyone have any thoughts? Here is the link:

    This is worrisome….

    Hi Chris,

    What about bee pollen? Do you have any thoughts, and/or recommendations?

    Hi Chris,
    Like so many said before me, you are a true rock for most of us cancer sufferers.
    I just got diagnosed with breast cancer 3 weeks ago and have now totally changed my diet. Take some supplements and had extensive blood work done to find out more about my body. My regular Doc is of course into the traditional conventional treatments, but I am not. So on to another clinic with med doc who is very educated in alternative medicine. She is also a doctor of Chinese medicine. I also do own a rebounder and it is in my living room. Thank you so much for your encouragement, because this means that everyone can heal their own body. It takes hard work on all parts, but with a positive mind this all can be a thing of the past. And we had great teaching and information along the way.
    Thank you

    Hi Chris!
    I am on Dr. George Wong’s herbs for my breast cancer….I was wondering if you take any curcumin/turmeric supps as I have read mixed things. Also, do you do coffee enemas or anything to detox your liver? Thanks so much!

    I see that Soy Lecithin is a major ingredient in the New Eden product. However, I have been reading that Soy Lecithin is made from the dirty sludge from Soybean processing. It contains pesticides and dirt and is then bleached which gives it a more pleasing color and taste. I have been reading that most soy is now GMO. How then is this healthy for you?

  48. Christy says:

    My daughter was diagnosed with a DIPG on January 29. I am desperate to find something that will help as the doctors have given her less than a year to live. I am wondering if this list of supplements would be appropriate for her and if so, would the dosage be the same? Thank you for giving me hope Chris. This is really the only place that I have found any.

    • Chris Wark says:

      Hi Christy, don’t give up! Miracles happen every day. I suggest you contact John Smothers, I really can’t answer those questions.

    Anyone know a great Clinical Nutritionist in the Colorado area??

    • Bradley Fleming says:

      Dave Frahm in Colorado Springs is an ND that does cancer treatments using muscle response testing.

  52. Charlotte says:

    I was just going to question the Soy Lecithin being in the New Eden product and see that someone is also inquiring. I would like to know why they use it and if you know anything about this ingredient. My mom has just been diagnosed with cancer and my research for her has just started so that we may find her a protocol/treatment/care and confidence. Please let me know. Thank you.

  53. deb says:

    Hi, I don’t have cancer I just want to look after myself better. My question is regarding the supplements you have listed. Is it ok for me to take Metagenics UltraClear RENEW (Liver Detox) and Biotics Research A.D.P. (Parasite killer)?

  54. TJ says:

    Hi Chris, I have two questions: 1. When taking many supplements, can they be taken at the same time? For example, if three need to be taken with meal, how do I do that?
    2. Are all the ingredients natural since they were made in the lab? Thank you.

I was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer in 2003, at 26 years old.
I had surgery, but refused chemo.
Instead I used nutrition and natural therapies to heal myself.
By the grace of God, I'm alive and kicking, and cancer-free!
