Coenzyme Q10 / Co Q10 / Stockholm Protocol
TREATMENT RATING: This cancer treatment is rated ONLY as being effective on newly diagnosed cancer patients who do not have a fast-growing cancer and their cancer has not spread significantly!! If you are an advanced cancer patient who has had a lot of chemotherapy, radiation or surgery or you have a potentially fast-growing cancer, do not use this treatment as your primary cancer treatment, use one of the protocols linked to on the following web page as your primary treatment:

How It Works
Coenzyme Q10 is an antioxidant that stimulates the heart muscles and stimulates the immune system in several different ways, mainly through higher antibody levels, and greater numbers and/or activities of the cancer fighting macrophages and T-cells. There may be other ways Co-Q10 aids in the fight against cancer that have not yet been isolated. Of course it is best known as an antioxidant. Antioxidants help the body use oxygen more efficiently.
The first thing that needs to be emphasized is dosage. In experiments where the dosage was only 90 mg, results were sporatic. However, when dosages were in the range of 400-600 mg, and perhaps higher, results were substantial. (Note: A person should gradually build up to dosages above 100 mg.)
The significance of this study is two-fold. First, all of these patients were given chemotherapy along with the Co-Q10. Imagine what results would have been obtained without the toxic and immune system destroying chemotherapy! Second, the dosages of Co-Q10 given by the doctors were far too low (90 mg). It was the patients who made the greatest discoveries.
And by a different author:
If you have been paying attention to my articles, you should jump out of your chair and shout: "Hey, this would be a great substance to add the Budwig Diet too." So it would.
There are two reasons for taking Coenzyme Q10 supplements, even though our body can manufacture it. First, the body makes less of this as we age. Second, the B vitamins niacin (B3), folic acid, and pyridoxine (B6) are required for the body to manufacture this nutrient, and most people don't get enough of these B vitamins.
Supercharging This Treatment
While Coenzyme Q10, by itself, can cause cancer remission, virtually every study with Co-Q10 involved mixing Co-Q10 (which helps the immune system), with chemotherapy (which destroys the immune system), thus leading to mixed results. Because of the lack of scientific research on Co-Q10, sans chemotherapy, this treatment plan must be supplemented until more information is received.
Perhaps the obvious place to start is the Stockholm Protocol, which is centered on Co Q10.
The Vitamin C in this regimen is far too low, and should probably be in the range of 12 grams (3 grams 4 times daily). Additionally, this treatment plan should also include a good multi-vitamin, which must include a wide array of trace elements (or use mineral water) and it must be strong in the B-Vitamins.
Since treatment plans that build the immune system generally take longer to aid in killing cancer cells (because they work indirectly), other treatment plans should be combined with this plan to help kill cancer cells directly and stop the spreading of the cancer. These might include Essiac Tea and/or grape cure, to kill cancer cells directly, and Rath Cellular Solution and MSM to stop metastasis.
I have included this product in my articles because of its affect on some patients in spite of them taking chemotherapy. Also because it lends itself to being combined with the Budwig Diet.
An alternative cancer treatment should be a complete treatment protocol. Do NOT forget to study the complete treatment protocol for Stage I, II and III cancer patients and the complete treatment protocol for Stage IV cancer patients:
