  • Dear Chris, I agree with everything you mentioned and live to the best of my ability from your guidelines. However, some cancers with aggressive growth need immediate treatment. I had ocular melanoma (choroid part of eye). This was fast growing and needed immediate radiation or I would have lost my eye and/or life. Very rare cancer but sometimes can’t wait. Otherwise, great advice. All the best to you.

  • I LOVE this! I was diagnosed with stage II Malignant Melanoma in July of 2012. Like you, I used nutritional therapies and emotional work to heal. I ignored the suggested treatment of additional surgery and lymph node biopsy. I found it a bit of a lonely process, unsupported by the medical community and even friends and family (at first). Thanks for this; it’s wonderful to be able to support one another.

  • Dawn R. Mardis

    A friend of mine sent me your link and you have confirmed all the things I believed in my heart and soul about cancer for years! I was just diagnosed with cervical cancer (from a PAP test) in November 2013. Like you said I your video, I felt fine and had NO SYMPTOMS of any kind. Once I was diagnosed, the whirlwind of tests and surgery and hysterectomy etc. hit me like a hurricane from all medical staff, friends, and family members who wanted to “help”. Everything was moving soooo fast I couldn’t think straight. I prayed for Gods intervention and instruction. He confirmed my feelings by bringing articles in magazines, people, and many other tools across my path. Everything I needed at exactly the right time. I have canceled all my appointments for “more painful tests” and have decided to treat my cancer spiritually and holistically and so God has now lovingly brought me to YOU! I thank Him so much for that. It is good to find someone who has “been there and done that” when you are looking for confirmation of your beliefs and support of your choices. Thank You for sharing your story with so many and for encouraging and uplifting us all with this video. I am 62 years old and I have never had a broken bone, only two surgeries C-sections in my life, and I have everything (body wise)that God brought me into the world with except for two teeth. In 1996 I donated my body to MUSC for student research and any parts of my body that can be used to help someone else upon my death, so I want to be as intact as possible. God Bless you for all the info you are sharing with others. I will pay it forward. You have my word on that!

  • Saige

    Hi Chris,
    I Thank You from the bottom of my heart. You have given me something that is priceless, HOPE! That means everything. I talk about you and this method to everyone involved in my situation(my boyfriend was just diagnosed w synovial sarcoma.) I want to give them the same hope that I have gotten. I truly believe G-D brought me to this blog and I want to spread the word.
    With all of that said, I was asked a question and didn’t have an answer so I’m hoping that you can help. We know that this country is not interested in curing cancer bc of the amount of money it makes, but why wouldn’t a country with universal health care be more interested in using this method ? Wouldn’t it save them money?

    My second question- I have heard hydrogenated oils are not good when you have cancer. I read that you should stay away from ‘extra virgin’ olive oils. What is your take on that?

    Thanks for any info you can give. Much love to you Chris. You are truly an angel.

  • Ursula Sekar Gayatri

    hi Chris ,my name is Ursula , i’m a 16 year old teenager . i’m Asian ( Indonesian – South East Asia ) and i read literally everything in your blog , also watched everything in your youtube acc. i’ve had some symptoms of cancer which i am very afraid of , and i just hate doctors . So i decided to change everything in my diet , because i’m Asian ,so it’s pretty hard . for 15 years i rarely eat vegetables and fruits , actually i kind of hate them . all i ate was processed food and others . Now , i decide to change my life . And i’m getting used to it , hardly . I love everything you write , it’s my inspiration on eating . So i want to say thank you for everything , your blog changed my life . and now i have something to ask you , you said you juiced vegetables , because i need time to get use to my new diet , is it okay if i start of by making fruits into smoothie ? and i live in Asia , foods here are different from the US , there are some foods that are alkaline , plant-based ( soy ) , but to eat it , you need to fry it . so i’m torn now . i really want to change my diet 100% and live a healthy life with anti-cancer diet program . if you have some advise , do share it :) Cancer is the one thing i totally fear , a teacher in my school has brain cancer and i’m freaking out now , reading your blog helped me a lot , it kind of calmed me down and showed me that nature is made for human , and i am grateful to the Lord for that . But still , the fear is in me . also , another question , i LOVE broccolis , spinach , cauliflowers , green tea , etc , but i’m used on eating them cooked , now i usually saute them with olive oil in low heat for 1-2 minutes . is it okay like that ?i’m still learning on drinking green juices , anyways love your blog , sending prayers for you , your family , other cancer fighting people , and all the love from Indonesia . Thanks :D

  • Hey Chris!

    Do you still update this blog? I see the last comment was 6 months ago.

  • June

    You have a true gift, Chris, and you are a true gift. Your message is so important. I especially like your Youtube interviews with Dr. Vickers and all the information you’re providing about The Gerson Treatment, which I wish my mother would have done. Thank you for spreading the truth.

  • Jim Aglah

    Great post! My 7 year old daughter was diagnosed with a brain tumor last July and subsequently underwent radiotherapy for 8 weeks. The doctors declared zero residual neurological deficit after the treatment. A recent MRI scan revealed a return of the tumor.
    Do you suppose the carrot juice therapy might help? Any additional advice would be welcome.

  • Lizy

    You were only 26 when you got cancer! Did you have a really bad diet, no exercise, stress etc? Why do you think you got it when you were so young and why are some babies or young children having leukemia?
    I totally agree with changing diet, behaviour to stress and exercise etc. Wish I’d know this before my Dad died. Well done for beating it.

  • ppbf25

    I think he has good messages in healthy diet and lifestyle, but I think some of his points are misleading. He jumps back and forth between cancer and things like heart disease – these are 2 separate conditions with different causes. Obesity and lack of exercise predispose you much more to heart disease, atherosclerosis, stroke, diabetes etc. These will kill you earlier than cancer if you consider these factors. Cancer is caused by carcinogens such as smoking/tobacco, alcohol, industrial toxins etc. His message of “eat food from the earth” and “exercise” is good for preventing chronic disease such as diabetes/hypertension and possibly cancer, but I think it is bad advice to rely on these once you have cancer. The simple message of “once you get cancer, let your body heal itself with nutritious food and exercise” is folly. Your body’s immune system conducts surveillance to destroy cancerous cells, but cancer develops once the immune system fails or the cancer mutates to find ways to evade the immune system or simply overwhelm it. Yes, the body has capacity to fight cancer, but more often than not it fails because the cancer has gotten to the point it has because your immune system let it get there. The message of healthy lifestyle does not do a damn thing to help someone who has metastatic cancer – they need chemo, radiation, surgery to remove the cancer. Overall, his message of healthy lifestyle is good at preventing cancer and chronic disease, but does not apply to actually treating cancer.

  • ppbf25

    Furthermore, his message of people not needing pharmaceutical drugs is ridiculous. Yes, for people who have things like hypertension and diabetes, the main treatment early on and throughout IS diet and exercise, but drugs can help control the disease and prevent complications such as heart attack, stroke etc. His message is too general; you cannot group every single pharmaceutical drug into one overreaching group. People who have genetic predispositions to various diseases and who have disease that has no link whatsoever to diet/exercise are wrongly misled by this message. Another misleading message is that “things from nature” are inherently good things for the body while “man-made” things are inherently bad – this is simply wrong. Everything that happens in the body is a biochemical reaction, and just because something is “made from man” or “from nature” doesn’t really matter – I am referring to pharmaceutical drugs and these “natural remedies” that people put out there – crap like honey. The stuff that is actually “nature-made” works because it has a specific chemical or compound in it that interacts with your body’s physiology – a prime example is cranberry juice – it prevents urinary tract infections because the juice has a chemical in it that prevents bacteria from binding the urinary tract lining. People drink the juice because it does prevent UTI’s, but if a drug company were to reproduce or isolate that same exact compound then people who go on sites like these would decry it as “man-made” and call it a toxin.

  • Lisandra May Finley

    I was just diagnosed with Hodgkin Lymphoma this last Thursday. I’d just like to take the time to say thank you for posting this video. I 100% believe that every reason you say people end up getting cancer is absolutely true. If I would have just exercised and ate right the last year I more than likely would not be going through this at 20 years old. So thank you very much for the wise words. It really made me feel like I can beat this piece of cake. Your video is very encouraging. Again, thank you.

  • Krystal Tackett

    Hello Chris and all. This is my first post…and there’s so much…but for time’s sake let me just ask, “Didn’t I see something about food combining on here somewhere?” Well, let me take a couple words to give God some praise: He got me a Jack Lalane juicer (seems pretty decent) and a Vitamix within a week’s time, absolutely free! He is so good. He loves me so much and He loves you too! God bless.

  • Virginia

    After 8 months of 100% raw diet, 20 less pounds, a lot of meditation, change of thinking and loving myself, the cancer has being growing from stage 2 to stage 4. I am not sure if everybody can be healed in the same way. I will keep on raw, because I love it, but I might give a try to regular treatments.
    Thanks!,

    Virginia

  • Debi Joy

    Chris, this brought me to tears!!! You are such an inspiration. I had TWO people in my circle that were diagnosed with Cancer this week. I’m just sick about it and am trying everything I can to keep myself and family healthy and I just shared this on my FB page. God Bless you brother!

  • Chris

    Hey Chris. Don’t you want people to watch Jerry Bruneti’s life changing Food as Medicine video?

  • Darrell

    Hi everyone- my wife was diagnosed with ovarian cancer last November, she had a rather large tumor removed and a radical hysterectomy in December. The tumor was causing her a lot of pain and she was not able to eat, so at the time we thought removing it was best, when her oncologist discovered we did not want to employ chemotherapy as part of her protocol she basically threw us out of her office. We have found a local MD that is also a Holistic doctor but he does not carry malpractice insurance and therefore he does not have hospital privileges and cannot order fluid removal procedures etc. We are only three weeks into the raw food vitamin C, Laetrile and IV C treatments. She again has some fluid build up and this makes her a bit nauseated so she is finding carrot juice and hydration a problem again. We cannot get an order for the fluid removal because the oncologist will not order it, the same doctor whom we dislike because she does her best to terrify my wife and is basically rude and arrogant will not refer us to another doctor, without a referral we cannot get into the hospital as an outpatient. So we have to check my wife in through the emergency ward were they keep her for a week and will not administer the supplements we choose. this all seems like something that would go on in Liberia not the US but it is, any suggestions on how we can win this card game with a marked deck so-to-speak. thanks , blessings Darrell

  • Lucy Smiechura

    Thanks Chris, my prayers have been answered. I have always believed that the body can heal itself given the right resources and changes required. What have said resonates true within my being. I now feel I trust my inner being to heal myself and be empowered in that choice. God bless your wisdom and inspiration.

  • Paula Daniels Roberts

    My OP: (I try to stay open minded/I’m utilizing natural after failed chemo).
    Wouldn’t it be amazing if all the (alternative and/or sent home to die) survivors could form a class action lawsuit to sue the FDA. someone has to do it. I’m normally not a litigious person, but this needs to stop. They are presenting false claims about chemo for certain and I waiver on radiation. I have been a nurse (RN) for 13 years and I believed in traditional cancer therapy 100%. I also have a BA in psychology, therefore I consider myself well educated in mainstream America and the practices/treatment/patient education related to Cancer. There is no attention being brought to this matter at present. I am so grateful to Chris and others like him for opening me up to see this side, it may save my life too.

  • Paula Daniels Roberts

    Oh ya! You are totally awesome!

  • Tina

    thank you for putting this out there – I believe you 100%!!!

  • Louis Cheyne

    Thanks for the valuable information, my brother inlay has the same cancer as you and I hope it will help him to, thankyou.

  • Lynn

    I also had stage 3 cancer and was rushed into surgery. While I don’t discount the importance of eating well, you don’t comment at all on the stats that the Dr clearly talks about when discussing treatment. I was told that even without chemo, the odds were over 80% that the colon cancer would not return after it was removed by surgery. The chemo simply increased that percentage/odds by dealing with any remaining cancer cells that might have remained in my body My guess is that you were told even higher odds given your younger age. I think it’s pretty dangerous to suggest to people who may be in completely different circumstances than you that they should not follow doctor recommendations and that they can simply heal themselves. Sometimes they do not have time. My mother took her time and it became too late. As the Dr. later said, she did it her way – green juice and all – until she died. It may be, as much as you believe in this, that you would never have gotten cancer back at any rate – that surgery beat cancer, not single handedly Chris. This disease is not yet understood. For every “cure” there is out there, there are people who wholeheartedly believe it cured them. Including chemo. Unlike you, it seems, I do know people who have done chemo and have been cancer free as long as you. I also know someone who was filled with cancer and experienced spontaneous remission just before surgery (and it wasn’t his first so there was no false diagnosis). Eating well, exercising, being at peace all must contribute to wellness, but sorry Chris, your continued well health certainly isn’t proof that people should ignore their doctor’s advice and follow this alone.

    • Chris Wark

      They gave me a 60% chance of living 5 years. The reality was actually 28%. See my FAQ page http://www.chrisbeatcancer.com/faq

      • Karen Brock

        It is like you said Chris: You have to do what is right for yourself. You need to do a lot of research and make sure you understand cancer from every side. Also, God decides when our time is done. Nothing we or any doctor can change that. While we are here we need to do everything to glorify God and our savior Jesus Christ!
        I agree wholeheartedly with everything you said!

    I put in my post just to have it removed later. Do you remove every post that doesn’t agree with every word you say?

  • alicia

    Hi Chris I was diagnosed with stage lv cancer of the cervix and had surgery as well as chemo. Had I known about your site I would have decline the chemo. My last scan showed that I am cancer free – but since reading your story I am now changing my diet to 100% raw to promote my health. What other advice can you give me to help with my journey? I am only 44 yrs old with 2 very young kids.

  • grey2ker

    Hi I just found out from my barium enema I have a malignant stricture in my colon and have a colonoscopy scheduled so I began research immediately.I’m so happy I found your page.thanks so much for sharing and helping,I now fully understand how my body and cancer work.I started on your diet right away and began removing stress from my life.I’m completely prepared for my diagnosis and the pressure my doctor has already begun to put on me.

  • Jenna

    You’re amazing. I am so happy I finally found this site, keep up the amazing work! I lost my 26 year old boyfriend & bff last year to brain cancer, and have been doing research and have learned so much ever since. Now I’m a huge activist and spend my time telling others the truth about the killers chemo & radiation as well. Thank you :-)

  • ChristianDoc

    I would like to preface my statement towards your video by saying that I am a physician, that I do agree with some of what you are saying and I believe that you mean well and have some good general advice for how people can live healthier lives. Unfortunately, you should have placed a disclaimer at the beginning of your video stating your education in medicine, specifically oncology, and in molecular biology of cancer (or lack there of, which I suspect is the real case). I believe that everyone is entitled to their OPINION, but you should not be advising people to go against mainstream medical recommendation and treatments. It is nice to hear what has worked for cancer survivors, but, unfortunately, for the mass majority of cancer patients, straying from their oncologists’ recommendations and treatments will result in their death (probably sooner than would occur with treatment). As a Christian, I believe that in all cancer patients His will be the final decision in their lives (or deaths) and that faith in our Savior and prayer are the best healers.

    • Juicer Jay

      As a physician then you are a scientist. My understanding of science is that when something does not agree with your model or expected outcome then you have to reevaluate your theories. Can cancer heal with natural means? Why is Chris not dead? I am sure Chris does not want to put himself at odds with the medical profession as he did not request this illness.
      Why are the scientists not queuing up to find out how this healing occurred. Is it explainable? Is it repeatable? Can others benefit from this outcome? There is a deadly silence from the so called science world. Hide behind science when it suits, but when it doesn’t then ignore it. Keep pouring money into researching drug based cures but ignore natural ones. It is about time that our health services stopped ignoring or patronizing people like Chris, and started asking the right questions, and looking for the answers. Then maybe we could have a world without cancer!

    Very interesting but some people with pancreatic cancer only last a few weeks. I wouldn’t say that’s plenty of time.

    I am unsubscribbing from your site

  • Jennifer DeSanctis-Narby

    You are awesome and so inspirational. I never want to have to try your approach AFTER I get cancer. I have no intention of getting cancer. I am all about preventative maintenance. Thank you so much. I will share this and simply hope others will listen.

  • Another great one Chris! “Truth is simple.” Absolutely, we like to make things more difficult to satisfy our complex mind, but it rarely has to be complicated. Thanks for what you do!

  • Susannah

    I beat cancer, too. thanks, Chris. you are an inspiration.

  • Avi

    I am going to share this on Facebook. I think everyone needs to be educated on this, it is crucial and important information to anyone in any shape or form even those that are healthy.

  • Chris Wark

    Thank you Inge!!!

  • Lynda Medeiros

    Hi chris I love your website. When you went on the gerson therapy? Did it help? Because I’m thinking of doing that therapy in the future. I know chemotherapy doesn’t help cancer. How did the doctors listen to you when you decide not to take chemo? Most doctors don’t listen to their patients? Was it hard to start the raw diet? How did your cancer heal so fast? I want to try the raw diet in the future. Do you have any advice on what I should do to keep staying healthy? Hope to hear from you soon. Lynda Medeiros

  • Sandy

    Is it ok to drink wine if one has colon cancer?

  • Florencia

    Hi! I´m from Argentina, I saw you on a video conference and I google your name, It took me here :). I love the way to talk about cancer. My dad also has colon cancer. He is 60 years old. I can understand this video because I know english, But my father doesn’t.

    May I suggest a subtitles for your videos? I don´t wanna seem rude, or something, It´s just a suggestion. the point is helping people, and I think this would improve.

    Thanks for let us know about your story!!

    • Dave

      Florencia. To speed up the process you could document the video subtitles and send them to Chris? In the mean time watch the video with your Dad and translate? You could always pause and go back over things with him.

  • Giana

    Chris- Do you know if it is the same with animals? My friends dog has cancer and they are giving her 90 days to live. Do the rules for humans and “spontaneous regression” apply to animals? Thank you

  • Nora Rogers

    I agree with Chris. He is so young and so smart. I recently was told I have a type M protein in my blood. I have somehting called monoclonal gammopahty of undetermined significance. It is when you have an abnormal protein in the blood. This leads to first kidney disease, neuropathy then blood cancer. A week ago I went to a hematologist/oncologist and was told there was absolutely nothing I could do about it. I looked it up and it is caused by 3 things, pesticides, the atomic bomb residue and genetics. One or all. I did a lot research and found out that many herbs (there are 4 of them) preventthe blood from spiking. I am at .1 now when you reach 2-4 you have blood cancer. The only cure for blood cancer right now is oral chemo which you only live 5-10 years with this. I do not have symptoms just yet. I am going to take the herbs and they are green tea extract, curcumin, aswahgeba, and quercetin. I have started not eating sugar (if I do very small amounts) and eating more fruits and vegetables and less animal protein. No one in my family has this and I was born in 1959 and in 1945 was the atomic bomb. If someone in my family died of this they probably never knew. The oncologist said smoking doesn’t cause it either. What?? There are many pesticides in one cigarette of course it can Wish me luck! Can’t afford all of this but can’t afford to die either.

    I had surgery for bladder cancer in July 2014. They want me to have chemo to. But I have seen your site. I to would like the nutritional program Karen or Chris please. hudsonjay@bellsouth.net

  • Stacy Heller-Welch

    In 2004, I was diagnosed with Hormone Post breast cancer at the age of 42. Did the surgery, chemo and rad therapy. At 5 year milestone mammo, was found stage 1 triple neg in right breast. Did the treatment thing again. 1 year later triple neg back in left breast. Genetic testing showed BRCA gene 1. Had double mastectomy and waited until 2013 to do a diep surgery. Now triple neg, stage four has appeared in left breast and into muscle and area of lower spine. Have been to several doctors and specialists at world known centers. The last 10 years have been hectic to say the least. On top of all this, my spine has several issues and have had various procedures done thru pain mgmt. Taking care of twins and fighting illness after illness is not been kind to the body. I know about food, I was a chef and baker before I ended my career. My big issue presently is no real appetite for food. The rAre occasions I am hungry, not much is eaten. Stress level off the charts. At this point there is no plan in effect. Waiting on a second biopsy because more lumps were found last Tuesday.
