WARNING #1) If you are dealing with any issue that affects breathing, immediately deal with an oncologist or surgeon. Do not depend on ANY natural medicine treatment to work fast-enough to deal with breathing issues. Emergency rooms are required by law to treat people with dangerous breathing issues.
WARNING #2) Tumors inside the lungs are, by definition, very dangerous. They can block breathing, among other things. There is a special article on dealing with dangerous tumors. The treatment for dangerous tumors recommends the High RF Frequency Protocol in conjunction with the Cellect-Budwig Protocol. The High RF Frequency Protocol can take up to a week or so to begin, so see both of these articles.
Lung cancer is a malignant (meaning it can spread to other parts of the body) tumor that begins in the cells of the lung. When cancer begins in the cells of the lung it is known as primary lung cancer.
Cancers of the lung are divided into non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and small cell lung cancer (SCLC). These designations are based on the type of cell in which cancer started.
Non-small cell lung cancer typically begins starts in glandular cells on the outer part of the lung. This type of cancer is called adenocarcinoma and can also start in thin flat squamous cells which line the bronchi (large airway tubes which branch off from the windpipe into the lungs). This type of lung cancer is termed squamous cell carcinoma of the lung.
A less common type of non-small cell lung cancer is large cell carcinoma. Rare types of NSCLC include sarcoma and sarcomatoid carcinoma.
Small cell lung cancer normally begins in cells which line the bronchi in the center of the lungs. The two primary types of small cell lung cancer are small cell carcinoma and combined small cell carcinoma.
Although other types of cancer can spread to the lung, these are not the same disease as primary lung cancer.
Causes & Symptoms of Lung Cancer
Research shows that a full 90 percent of lung cancers in men and more than 70 percent in women could be prevented by smoke-free environments. However, other carcinogens including radon gas, uranium, arsenic, and asbestos can also cause lung cancer.
Lung cancer typically doesn't cause signs and symptoms in its earliest stages. Signs and symptoms of lung cancer typically occur only when the disease is advanced. (2)
Lung cancer symptoms include:
- a persistent, chronic or worsening cough
- chest pain that is constant and made worse by deep breathing or coughing
- blood-stained mucus that is coughed up from the lungs
- shortness of breath
- frequent chest infections (bronchitis or pneumonia)
- loss of appetite
- weight loss
- collapsed lung
- severe shoulder pain
- Horner’s syndrome
Late signs and symptoms present as lung cancer grows larger or spreads to other parts of the body.
- the buildup of fluid around the lungs
- bone pain
- difficulty swallowing
- neurological changes including a headache, limb numbness, dizziness, weakness or seizures
- enlarged lymph nodes in the neck or above the collarbone
Who Gets Lung Cancer
Relating to the causes of lung cancer, people who smoke any type of tobacco, regularly breathe in second-hand smoke or are exposed to asbestos or radon are most at risk of developing lung cancer. The risk significantly increases for those exposed to a combination of any of the above risk factors.
Other risk factors include:
- A family history of lung cancer
- Air pollution
- Previous lung disease
- Past cancer treatment
- Previous smoking-related cancers
- Lowered immunity
- Indoor burning of coal
According to data from SEER 18 2006-2012, approximately 6.6 percent of men and women will be diagnosed with lung and bronchus cancer at some point during their lifetime.
Prognosis if You Have Lung Cancer
For treatment purposes, doctors often use a simpler system based on whether or not cancer can likely be removed (resected) with surgery:
• Resectable cancers are those that doctors believe can be removed completely by surgery.
• Unresectable cancers have spread too far or are in too difficult a place to be removed entirely by surgery.
Generally speaking, most Stage 0, I, and II cancers and possibly some stage III cancers are resectable. Most Stage III and IV tumors are unresectable.
However, this also depends on other factors, such as the size and location of cancer and whether a person is healthy enough for surgery.
The 5-year relative survival rate for lung cancer:
- Stage I – 58-73 percent
- Stage 2 – 36-46 percent
- Stage 3 – 19-24 percent
- Stage 4 – 2-13 percent
Conventional medicine’s main types of treatment for lung cancer include:
- Radiation therapy
- Palliative therapy

Why stop learning here when there are several great discussions on Lung Cancer going on right now in the forum.
Lung cancer has some unique aspects which can make it difficult to treat. While it is easy to kill the cancer cells in a lung cancer patient, it is NOT EASY TO SAFELY KILL THE CANCER CELLS. The problem is that the debris from dead cancer cells are hard to safely remove from the lungs, among other potential problems.
Two of the other potential problems with lung cancer are inflammation and swelling in the lungs, which are things that can cause congestion. Before a cancer cell dies it gets sick. The problem is that once the cancer cell gets sick the immune system recognizes the cell as being sick and attacks it (to kill it) and this causes inflammation and swelling, meaning congestion. This is not good to happen inside the lungs.
In addition, there are several different causes of fluids both inside and outside of the lungs.
Furthermore, the cancer itself can cause lung congestion due to cancer cells. However, killing these cancer cells can create temporary additional congestion. This means treating lung cancer, especially advanced lung cancer cases, is very, very tricky.
The good news is that some newer alternative cancer treatments are giving lung cancer patients new hope, even for those on oxygen; but there are never any guarantees treating advanced lung cancer because there are so many, many things that can go wrong.
Protocols: How to Treat Lung Cancer
The Cellect-Budwig Protocol is recommended for lung cancer because it is a good detox protocol. However, being a good detox protocol actually places a burden on the liver (which cannot be avoided if you want to detox the liver), thus it is critical to use a coffee enema to stimulate the liver to help flush the toxins from the liver.
- Primary: Cellect-Budwig Protocol and High RF Frequency Protocol
- Recommended: Quantum Pulse
- Also Consider: Rejuvenzyme, Barley Grass, Nebulizer with Oleander
Recommended Primary Treatment – Cellect-Budwig Protocol
The highly recommended primary treatment for lung cancer is the Cellect-Budwig Protocol. This treatment has been shown to be very effective against lung cancer, emphysema and asthma. It shouldn't cause any type of inflammation even at full doses.
For COPD or emphysema a patient should also add lecithin.
In one case study using the Cellect-Budwig protocol, a patient with lung cancer, emphysema and the removal of part of one lung, on 16 liters of oxygen a day, was able to reduce his oxygen down to 4 liters a day within 6 weeks!
He also used The Quantum Pulse in addition to the Cellect-Budwig protocol. The reduction of the need for oxygen is not the only key issue here, but also the fact that no additional congestion resulted from the treatment.
If there is existing lung congestion it may be necessary to obtain the cooperation of orthodox medicine to take care of the congestion or drainage of fluids.
Note: You do not need to buy a Quantum Pulse (they are very expensive), but if you can find a Quantum Pulse center near you, it would help significantly to use it:
Warning: You need to be careful about adding any other alternative cancer treatment to this protocol because the additional protocol may kill cancer cells too quickly and thus add a significant amount of lung congestion. Lung cancer is NOT a type of cancer you can “throw the book” at with a lot of alternative cancer treatments. It is something you need to be very careful with.
Note: Do NOT attempt to use the Cellect-Budwig Protocol on lung cancer without doing a consultation with Mike Vrentas. He can tell you what to expect and how to adjust doses based on symptoms, etc. Treating lung cancer with ANY protocol requires expert support via telephone, Skype or a clinic (see below for a clinic).
Here is a short 11-minute video by Mike Vrentas about the Cellect-Budwig protocol:

Required Supplemental Treatment – High RF Frequency Generator
The High RF frequency generator is an electromedicine device which generates specific coordinative resonant frequencies which are known to assist in reverting cancer cells into normal cells. The generator is very effective against lung cancer because in the normal use of the product, an RF carrier frequency can penetrate the lung and other tissues made up of cells.
This device can reverts cancer cells into normal cells (see the “What Causes Cancer” article).
The High RF frequency generator with the plasma amplifier is patterned after the original frequency generator and amplifier developed by Dr. Royal Rife in the 1930s, but uses up to date technology.
Use the 207-watt high RF frequency generator – with plasma amplifier system for lung cancer. The high RF frequency generator with 15-watt linear amplifier can also be used but it is a tethered “contact” device (using wires and electrodes) and puts out less wattage.
See this article:
Frequency Generator article
Where to Buy the Independent Cancer Research Foundation “Research Model” High RF Frequency Generator and Plasma Tube Amplifier:
Copy and paste the above website address into your web browser's address field. Go to the vendor’s website that sells the High RF Frequency Generator and oscillator plasma amplifier which can broadcast high RF frequencies using a plasma ray tube antenna. You’ll be able to see photographs of the generator and amplifiers including full specifications and pricing at their website. They offer excellent technical support.
Two Recommended Supplements To Prevent Swelling and Inflammation
Rejuvenzyme and Barley Grass are two superb enzyme supplements. Both of these products are highly endorsed to reduce swelling, inflammation and congestion in the lungs. The Rejuvenzyme enzymes will also help the immune system recognize the cancer cells as cancer cells. The “vegetarian” version of Rejuvenzyme does not have some of the key enzymes needed by cancer patients.
Here is a link to vendors:
Rejuvenzyme [Do NOT buy vegetarian, buy regular whole body.]

Nebulizer With Oleander
Here is an interesting article on using a nebulizer to get cancer-killing substances directly into the lungs:

How to Prevent Lung Cancer
There are lifestyle decisions you can make to lower the risk of developing lung cancer, including quitting smoking, maintaining a healthy weight by being active and eating a healthy diet: vegetables; fruits; whole-grain bread, pasta, and cereals; fish; poultry; and beans. Also, you should limit processed meat and red meat.
According to the AACR Foundation, “Tobacco smoking is the most important risk factor for lung cancer. Cigarette, cigar, and pipe smoking all increase the risk of lung cancer. Tobacco smoking causes about 9 out of 10 cases of lung cancer in men and about 8 out of 10 cases of lung cancer in women.
“Studies have shown that smoking low tar or low nicotine cigarettes does not lower the risk of lung cancer. Studies also show that the risk of lung cancer from smoking cigarettes increases with the number of cigarettes smoked per day and the number of years smoked. People who smoke have about 20 times the risk of lung cancer compared to those who do not smoke.” (1)
The immune system contains many different types of “cells,” however, only a handful of these white blood cells actually kill cancer cells. It should be the intent of a person with cancer to focus on treatments that quickly increase the count of the cancer-killing white blood cells.
The second thing to note is that building the immune system is sometimes not the highest priority of those with cancer. People with only a few months to live should definitely take immune system building products — and focus more on the nutrients, foods and products that kill cancer cells directly, such as the Grape Cure, Noni Juice, Essiac Tea, etc. or revert the cancer cells into normal cells.
With rare exceptions, it is highly advisable to use natural substances to deal with the immune system to treat cancer, no matter what stage the cancer patient is in.
Some research shows that people who are physically active have a lower risk of lung cancer than those who are not. However, since smokers tend to have different levels of physical activity than nonsmokers, it is difficult to know if physical activity affects the risk of lung cancer. (1)
Immune System Health
A healthy immune system remains your body's best defense. Not only is a weak immune system a major reason patients have cancer — and cancer itself can further weaken the immune system.
Beta glucans help regulate the immune system, making it more efficient. In addition, beta glucans stimulate white blood cells (lymphocytes) that bind to tumors or viruses and release chemicals to destroy it.
Beta Glucan has been approved in Japan, Australia, South Korea, and Taiwan as an immunoadjuvant therapy for cancer. In fact, helping with cancer is just the beginning with Beta Glucan. There have thousands of studies showing the product can protect against infections, lower your cholesterol, lower blood sugar, reduce stress, increase your antibody production, heal wounds, help radiation burns, overcome mercury-induced immunosuppression (like Thimerosal, used as a preservative in vaccines), help with diabetes, and even naturally prevent metastasis (or the spreading of your cancer).
Harvard Medical School suggests following general good-health guidelines is the single best step you can take toward keeping your immune system strong and healthy:
- Don't smoke.
- Eat a diet high in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, and low in saturated fat.
- Exercise regularly.
- Maintain a healthy weight.
- Control your blood pressure.
- If you drink alcohol, drink only in moderation.
- Get adequate sleep.
- Take steps to avoid infection, such as washing your hands frequently and cooking meats thoroughly.
- Get regular medical screening tests for people in your age group and risk category.
More Information: Building the Immune System
Your diet plays a role in a healthy immune system. The top vitamins your immune system needs to perform include:
- Vitamin C — helps to repair and regenerate tissues and aids in the absorption of iron
- Vitamin E — a powerful antioxidant that helps your body fight off infection
- Vitamin B6 — supports adrenal function and is necessary for key metabolic processes
- Vitamin A — aids immune function and helps provide a barrier against infections
- Vitamin D — modulates cell growth, promotes neuromuscular and immune function, and reduces inflammation
- Folate — key in development of red blood cells (a lack of Folate can make the body susceptible to cancer)
- Iron — helps your body carry oxygen to cells
- Selenium — slows the body's overactive responses to certain aggressive forms of cancer
- Zinc — slows the immune response and control inflammation in your body
Lung Cancer – Medical Clinic – Emphysema Experts
Emphysema is very different than lung cancer. Because of that most alternative cancer treatments will NOT treat emphysema.
Many people with emphysema generally have many serious health problems, which generally means they are taking many different kinds of orthodox drugs. This creates a problem because there are some conflicts with orthodox medicine and alternative medicine. Usually, the problems are caused by synergism, causing too much of an effect, such as lowering the blood pressure too far.
It can literally take an expert to successfully make the transition from more than a dozen prescription drugs to an alternative cancer treatment. Again, synergism is the problem.
The problems between orthodox medications and natural substances must be dealt with by the patient and his or her physician. It is absolutely impossible for this website to consider and deal with all of the different permutations of orthodox and alternative treatments.
There is an excellent clinic which provides very excellent support for those with both cancer and emphysema. The clinic is staffed by an M.D. and is located in Nevada. This clinic is an ideal solution for those who can afford it (and it is not as expensive as you might think) because the patient will be under the direct care of a medical staff.
Here is the website of the clinic:
