It should be understood that treating newly diagnosed cancer patients versus treating advanced cancer patients (e.g. someone sent home to die) is like the difference between putting out a fire in the kitchen versus putting out a fire which has already engulfed five rooms.

Furthermore, it should be understood that not all alternative cancer treatments are equally effective. Some alternative cancer treatments can be compared to a “garden hose” and others can be compared to a “fire hose.”

The cancer patient must choose an alternative cancer treatment that is strong enough for their situation and they must work with an expert in that treatment to teach them what they need to know to use it. The choice of an expert is as important as the treatment itself.

Many cancer patients have emailed me (note: I do not broadcast my email address because my time is severely restricted) and described their cancer treatment. Many times I have seen nothing but a long list of garden hoses.

They do not understand.

To have a good chance of survival they generally need four things:
1) At least one or two fire hoses (the fire hoses usually have expert support available),
2) Expert telephone support or support at a clinic which specializes in alternative cancer treatments,
3) Several garden hoses (which may be built into the overall treatment to “buy time,” relieve pain, etc.) and
4) A positive mental attitude with family support.

Memorize that list.

Let me give you an example of why it is important to identify the highly potent alternative cancer treatments and an expert.

Suppose you see a testimonial on the Internet about how carrot juice cured a newly diagnosed cancer patient. You can assume the testimonial is true but does that mean an advanced cancer patient can be cured with the same protocol? The answer may be a resounding ‘NO'. The patient who was cured may have been someone with a slow growing cancer and who had never had chemotherapy.

Every case is different, which is why you need to work with an expert.

It is critical to understand that by the time a person has had extensive orthodox cancer treatments the number of viable options to treat their cancer has dwindled from several hundred (when they were first diagnosed) to perhaps two dozen (when they complete their orthodox treatments).

Another critical aspect of treating cancer is the cancer patient's attitude. This is as important as the treatment itself.

Some alternative cancer treatment clinics in Germany give advanced cancer patients art lessons. That is how important a positive mental attitude is to create a strong “will to survive.”

I worked on one cancer case where the patient should have been dead two years before I started to work with her. She was alive only because she had two small children and she refused to die (and she did a lot of praying).

Cancer patients must be distracted away from their condition and be encouraged to move forward as if they knew they were going to survive. Negative attitudes are not an option. Cancer patients must be continuously reminded that they have loved ones who want them to survive.
