Fighting cancer can be compared to fighting a house fire. For example, suppose you had a house fire and the fire was in three rooms and spreading quickly. Suppose you called the fire department and a single person, in a single car, arrived with a squirt gun. You would not be very happy.
Like the fire department must bring enough equipment to fight a house fire, a person treating their cancer needs to use enough protocols which collectively are powerful enough to stop the spreading of cancer and kill existing cancer cells or revert them into normal cells.
Too many cancer patients don't understand these concepts and they don't use enough, or strong enough, natural cancer treatments to deal with cancer. In fact, as this article will demonstrate, there is no limit to how powerful natural cancer treatments can become.
But it is necessary for you, the patient, or someone in your home, to do a massive amount of reading to understand what needs to be done to treat cancer. This article will help you know what you need to consider. Your consultant isn't going to have the time to spend 40 hours with you explaining what causes cancer and how to treat it.
Someone in the family is going to have to be designated as the “cancer expert” and they are going to have to do a lot of reading, such as studying the “What Causes Cancer” article.
For example, they might start with 14 items in the Dirt Cheap Protocol and add 15 items from this article (chosen from different categories).
Before reading this document read these three documents on “What Causes Cancer.” If you do not have a clear understanding of what causes cancer this Reference Manual might as well be written in Chinese:
This article is a broad overview of the power of natural cancer treatments and all the things they can do to help a cancer patient survive their cancer.
As you study these categories think about redundancy. No one is going to use ALL of the items in each category, but some might want to use 3 or 4 of the items in some categories or even 8 or 9 items in some categories (as the Dirt Cheap Protocol does to revert cancer cells into normal cells).
The items in each category are not in any particular order so do not assume the first item listed is more potent that the fifth item, for example.
The name in parenthesis is an information comment or the name of the main cancer treatment that includes that item.
Also, note that only ONE highly alkaline protocol should be used at a time. Cesium, Cellect, baking soda, high doses of barley, high pH ionized water, wheatgrass, etc. are all highly alkaline and only one should be used at a time except for short periods of time.
Also note that some protocols should not be used together (generally this is not dangerous, but one item can be neutralized by another). For example, Paw Paw will be neutralized by the DMSO / CD protocol.
Do not use this article to design your cancer treatment (let the expert who is working with you do that) but rather use it to make sure you are not missing anything in your treatment.
Always let your consultant know what you are doing so that he or she can warn you of any conflicts.
In addition to this article, it is important to study the “Common Questions” article, which answers a lot of questions we get all the time: Common Questions Article
The very definition of a “cancer cell” is a cell that has low ATP energy. If you read the above articles you know that cancer is generally caused by microbes which are inside of the cancer cells which block the production of ATP energy by intercepting glucose. In rare cases, other things can block this ATP energy, such as DNA damage, toxins, etc. For example, toxins or radiation that gets inside of cancer cells may damage or destroy some of the mitochondria inside the cancer cells (if they were not already cancer cells, they may become cancer cells due to the mitochondrial damage) and thus lower ATP energy.
Or, in some cases, DNA damage (this is fairly rare), such as a defective BRCA2 protein (i.e. the damage is in the gene that makes this protein), can in different ways block some part of the long chemical chain-reactions which are needed in the creation of ATP energy.
But in most cancer patients, it is microbes that cause cancer. There are more than a dozen treatments that are designed to kill the microbes inside the cancer cells which are discussed below. To do this requires two things. A “microbe-killing substance” (such as baking soda, turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, Aloe Arborescens – the herb, not the product) is needed to kill these microbes. There must also be a “Trojan Horse” to escort the microbe-killing substance to the cancer cells and may even help the microbe-killing substance get inside the cancer cells. The “Trojan Horse” is there to target the cancer cells and get the microbe-killing substances inside the cancer cells.
The ultimate Trojan Horse / Microbe-Killing combination is DMSO (the Trojan Horse) and Chlorine Dioxide (the DMSO / CD protocol). However, DMSO causes severe body odor so it is not used as much as it should be.
Another way to kill these microbes is to use gentle electromedicine, such as the High RF Frequency Generator with plasma amplifier. The High RF Frequency Generator with plasma amplifier has a “carrier wave” that gets the main frequency (which is to kill the microbes) all the way through the body. Because the main frequency passes through the body it also passes through the cancer cells and thus it can kill the microbes inside the cancer cells. This technology was discovered in the 1930s but the newer equipment has a much improved technology and can even be used at home while the patient sleeps.
Cancer is caused by microbes inside the cancer cells. A weak immune system is caused by microbes and parasites in the organs and in the bloodstream. In short, dealing with cancer frequently requires killing a lot of microbes and parasites. In fact, the Independent Cancer Research Foundation continuously tries to find stronger and stronger products that can kill microbes.
When massive numbers of microbes are killed in a short amount of time, the result may be Herxheimers Reaction or just Herxheimers. The symptom of Herxheimers is typically brain fog. The patient may feel there is something wrong with their brain.
There is nothing wrong with their brain. What there is is a massive number of mycotoxins released by dead microbes. These mycotoxins, when in large amounts in the bloodstream (especially in the brain), can block brain signaling and thus cause brain fog.
Herxheimers is a good thing. It means massive numbers of microbes have been killed. Nevertheless, practitioners try to avoid Herxheimers by using a build-up when using products that kill a lot of microbes. As long as the patient understands and expects the brain fog, they will understand, not be alarmed.
So it is important to explain to the patient what brain fog is all about. It is best to AVOID brain fog because it can scare the patient, but in some cases, a person will underestimate how many microbes are in the bloodstream or how strong an anti-microbial product may be. If the patient understands what Herxheimers is, they will not be afraid if they do get some brain fog.
For those who are poor or live in foreign countries
The Independent Cancer Research Foundation, Inc. has made great efforts to help those who cannot afford the expensive protocols. Time after time you will see protocols on this article which are not only very inexpensive but also can be purchased inside of any country. We are well aware that government corruption is a worldwide problem.
In addition to many items scattered around this article, item #16 is especially for those who are poor or who live in foreign countries. This section links to articles with hundreds of natural cancer treatments.
Warnings for those using blood thinners
For those using blood thinners, they should know that many natural cancer treatments are blood thinners. Many herbs are blood thinners. The Dirt Cheap Protocol is especially loaded with anti-oxidants (i.e. blood thinners).
Make sure your consultant is well aware that you are on blood thinners. For those using the Dirt Cheap Protocol, study the section on blood thinners carefully.
Warnings for those with cancer in an organ
It is frequently thought that a cancer patient will not die until they get very weak. This may be true in some cases, but it is not true for people who have cancer in their organs. If cancer shuts down an organ, that can be the end of the cancer patient.
Those with cancer in the organs need to be very aggressive in dealing with their cancer. They need to use a major protocol and perhaps even a few items from the Dirt Cheap Protocol. But they need to keep in mind to use only one highly alkaline protocol at a time. Also, do not use anti-oxidants within 3 hours of the Budwig Diet on both sides.
Rules for the Cancer Diet
It doesn't do much good to try to kill the cancer cells (or the microbes inside the cancer cells) if you are feeding the microbes with the things they love to eat. The Cancer Diet must support the cancer treatment, not sabotage it.
This only a very, very brief discussion of this topic but it has some very important general rules.
Rule 1a) ZERO processed sugar. Processed sugar is a utopia for the microbes inside the cancer cells. Cancer cells have more glucose receptors than healthy cells so they take in more sugar than healthy cells. Sugar makes the cancer microbes more active.
Rule 1b) ZERO dairy products. There is one thing that cancer microbes love even more than sugar – they love dairy products. Diary products are absolutely forbidden in a cancer diet. There are exceptions, however (e.g. the Budwig diet or Colostrum).
Rule 2) Similar to Rule #1 – Eat as few foods as possible which have processed flour in them.
Rule 3) A cancer patient can eat any whole, natural food they want to. This includes fruits, vegetables, nuts, whole grains and even meat in most cases.
The Kelley-Metabolic protocol, also known as the Metabolic protocol, does forbid meats because of the enzymes in the meat can interfere with the protocol.
However, the meat issue is not that simple. The proteins in meat are “food” to the microbes that cause cancer (see the “What Causes Cancer” article). The book, The China Study, strongly recommends against eating meat. So the trade-off that a cancer patient faces is the need for meat for energy (especially if the patient is weak) versus the fact that the microbes inside the cancer cells love the proteins in meat.
For more information about meat see this article: FAQ About Meat
Rule #4) As much of the “cancer diet” as possible should INCLUDE foods high in oxalic acid. Carrot juice and purple grape juice are especially excellent, as these foods contain multiple molecules which can kill cancer cells.
A rule of thumb is: 50 percent of the foods a cancer patient eats should be high in oxalic acid, though this number can be higher or lower depending on the situation.
Here is the list of oxalic acid foods: Buzzle Article On Oxalic Acid Foods
Also, see the article on the Cancer Diet.
#1) Target and kill cancer cells
While most people think killing cancer cells is the only way to deal with cancer, it is not. In fact, in some cases killing cancer cells is too dangerous. In any case, here is a list of treatments that do kill cancer cells. In some cases, these treatments are also very alkaline and thus they slow down the spreading of cancer while they kill them.
1) Cellect (Cellect-Budwig – Major Home Cancer Treatment)
2) Purple Grape Juice, at least 12 chemicals kill cancer cells (Brandt Grape Cure)
3) Fucoidan (categorized as a “food”) – anyone can add to other protocols.
4) Moringa Juice (Moringa Oleifera) (a “food” – can use with anything) – www.moringamiracle.com
Another brand of Moringa is called “Zija Moringa”
5) Carrot Juice (Cellect-Budwig / Dirt Cheap Protocol)
6) Oxalic Acid – this is in certain foods (see Dirt Cheap Protocol)
The “Cancer Diet” frequently should contain 50% or more of foods high in oxalic acid no matter
what main protocol they are on – see Buzzle link below
7) Extra-Virgin Olive Oil – The oleocanthal in extra virgin olive oil kills cancer cells. See: How Olive Oil Works
8) Salvestrol or Silvestrol – also kills cancer cells and is found in natural foods: Salvestrol Vendor
9) Kelley Metabolic (Cellect-Budwig / strips enzyme coating off of cancer cells – immune system kills cancer cells)
10) DCA (Sodium Dichloroacetate) – see: www.puredca.com
11) Mangosteen (categorized as a “food”) – anyone can use
12) Tahitian Noni Juice (categorized as a “food”) – anyone can use

36) Modified Citrus Pectin (also chelates heavy metals)
37) Escozine (derived from Caribbean Blue Scorpion venom) – Google: Escozine “blue scorpion”
38) Dandelion Tea (Dandelion Tea)
39) Herbs That Kill Cancer Cells (see #15 below: Herbs For Cancer)
Note #1: When adding items to the Cellect-Budwig protocol, which is mentioned above, it is important to remember that many products, particularly antioxidants, can interfere with the Budwig protocol. Thus, when adding things to the Cellect-Budwig protocol, use the Budwig first thing in the morning, and then do not use any added products to the Cellect-Budwig protocol for 2 or 3 hours. This gives the Budwig Diet time to work.
Note #2: Oxalic Acid is in several of the above items (e.g. carrot juice, purple grapes and lemon peels). The “cancer diet” should be high in foods containing oxalic acid, about 50 percent – but not too many greens. For a long list of foods that contain oxalic acid see this website:
Buzzle Article On Oxalic Acid Foods
#2) Revert cancer cells into normal cells (3 categories)
To revert cancer cells into normal cells it is necessary to kill the microbes that are inside the cancer cells. There are three basic categories of doing this. In some cases several treatments within the same category can be used to enhance the treatment or items from multiple categories can be combined. The Dirt Cheap Protocol is loaded with treatments that revert cancer cells into normal cells.
For more information about reverting cancer cells into normal cells and to see the three categories of treatments, along with examples of each category, click on this article:
#3) Kill microbes and parasites in the organs (e.g. liver, pancreas) – i.e. “Liver Flush”
Everyone on this planet has cancer cells in their body. So why are some people “diagnosed” with cancer and others are never at risk for getting diagnosed with cancer? The main reason is that those who are diagnosed with cancer have a weak immune system. The immune system is generally weakened by microbes and parasites in the organs (see the “What Causes Cancer” article). These microbes and parasites steal nutrition from the cells in the organs and excrete highly acidic waste products, such as mycotoxins. This weakens the cells in the organs and thus weakens the immune system, thus allowing the number of cancer cells to grow out of control. Thus, the patient is “diagnosed” with cancer.
The process of killing these microbes and parasites is commonly called a “liver flush,” but in fact, these protocols seek to kill all microbes and parasites in all of the organs, not just the liver.
For more information and to see the individual treatments in this category click on this article:
Liver Flush Article (Kill Microbes and Parasites in the Organs)
#4) Supplements, etc. to build the immune system and super nutrients
Don't Forget To See Item #3 Above
The importance of the immune system to a cancer patient (from Quest For The Cure): Immune System
In addition to killing the microbes and parasites in the organs (#3 above), cancer patients also need supplements which specifically help strengthen the immune system. This is the other half of building the immune system. For Cancer Patients (and other degenerative conditions), rebuilding and maintaining adequate immune response is vital to recovery and longevity.
The only product renowned for its unparalleled effects on the Immune System, without side effects, is Transfer Point's Beta Glucan Supplement. Beta Glucans have been used as an Anti-Tumor, Anti-Cancer, and Anti-Inflammatory solution for decades. For more information on this “wonder drug,” call Better Way Health at 800.746.7640 and mention “The Cancer Tutor website”
Another item which can help the immune system is the magnetic pulser device [See Cesium Chloride protocol] . This device also helps with inflammation and pain.
For more information about building the immune system and many specific products, click on this article: Immune Building Products – Long List
#5) Highly alkaline protocols (generally use only one per day)
Alkalinity slows down the spread of cancer by slowing down the ability of the microbes inside the cancer cells to breed quickly. Thus, alkalinity slows down the spreading of cancer. In fact, alkalinity can stop the spreading of cancer indefinitely. However, if enough alkalinity gets inside the cancer cells fast enough, the alkalinity can actually kill the microbes inside the cancer cells and revert them into normal cells. See the Bob Wright Protocol article for more details and critical concepts about how to avoid a “build-up” in order to make highly alkaline protocols far more effective than they normally are.
Warning #1 — Unless working with an expert, only one highly alkaline protocol should be used each day. These protocols are generally not combined with each other.
Warning #2 — To check for the symptoms of “alkalosis” (too much alkalinity) see this website: Search: Symptoms of Alkalosis
Here is one brand of test strips (e.g. Amazon or other websites): Macherey-Nagel's SEOH pH-Fix 4.5-10.0
Here are some highly alkaline protocols (use only one per day):
1) Cellect (e.g. Cellect-Budwig Protocol — contains cesium and potassium)
2) Cesium Chloride (e.g. Cesium Chloride Protocol)
3) Barefoot Cesium Protocol
4) Barefoot Calcium Protocol
5) Kangan 11.5 High pH Ionized Water (e.g. Bob Wright Protocol)
6) High Dose Barley (Bill Henderson Protocol)
7) Wheatgrass – See: Article on Wheatgrass
8) Asparagus, Broccoli, Cabbage, Cucumber, Alfalfa, Sprouts, Spinach, Tomato, etc.
9) Vitamineral Green (by Vital Healing Food)
10) Baking Soda (part of Dirt Cheap Protocol)
11) Stevia (herb)
12) Magnesium Chloride (use the oil transdermally), plus iodine
13) For a chart on the alkalinity of foods, see this excellent site: Alkalinity of Foods
You cannot believe how many times we have heard someone say they wanted their blood pH to be high. WRONG. Your blood pH must remain neutral, generally between 7.0 and 7.2. It is inside the cancer cells where the pH needs to be high.
The highly alkaline protocols are not designed to make the blood pH high, they are designed to make the ph inside the cancer cells to be high.
Study the symptoms of when the blood pH is too high: muscle twitching, nausea, vomiting, numbness in face, numbness in hands, muscle spasms, etc.
We repeat: The pH of the blood MUST remain pH neutral. This is why only ONE high pH protocol should be used each day.
#6) Kill microbes in the bloodstream, build immune system
By some estimates, the average adult has 2 pounds of microbes in their bloodstream. Dr. Bob Beck, Ph.D., who taught physics at the University of Southern California, learned that if you kill all of the microbes in the bloodstream that the immune system will be supercharged and the immune system can deal with cancer. However, his protocol is not as fast-acting or powerful a method of treating cancer as killing the microbes inside the organs, which was discussed above in item #3. While not as time-critical as other issues, eventually it would be wise to use his tactic or other tactics to get rid of these microbes.
For more information and to see the individual treatments in this category click on this article: Kill Microbes in the Bloodstream
#7) Treatments for those who cannot eat (e.g. on a liquid diet)
Many cancer patients cannot eat solid foods. This may be because of stomach cancer, colon cancer, surgery or other factors. Fortunately, there are several very powerful cancer treatments which are liquid or electromedicine and do not require the digestion of solid foods. Many of these protocols and products can be used with a feeding tube, PEG tube, etc.
Note: A ‘+' means this can also be taken without swallowing (e.g. through the skin, by breathing, electromedicine or by an I.V.).
1) Cesium Chloride Protocol, major protocol — very potent even in low doses
2) Kelmun Protocol, several of the individual treatments are liquid
3) Bob Wright Protocol (high pH ionized water) and supplements
+7) High RF Frequency Generator with Plasma Amplifier Protocol – 15 watts
8) Stevia (the sweetener) – a herb – see the Dirt Cheap Protocol for more information
9) DMSO/CD (an amazing TRANSDERMAL [through the skin] protocol)
10) Perfect Storm (supercharged version of DMSO/CD)
11) MSM/LIPH (liquid)
14) Several items in the Dirt Cheap Protocol (e.g. Ultraviolet, Aloe Arborescens)
+15) BioMat – Infrared
+16) Ozone RHP – by I.V.
17) Essiac Tea
18) Bob Beck Protocol (supplemental protocol only)
19) Hemp Oil
20) Laetrile / B17 (liquid version)
21) Mangosteen (categorized as a “food”)
22) Noni Juice (categorized as a “food”)
23) Fucoidan (categorized as a “food”)
25) Pineapple Juice
26) Carrot juice (1 quart a day) with the juice from two beets added
27) Krill Oil (http://krilloil.mercola.com/krill-oil.html)
+28) Essential Oils (e.g. Frankincense, etc. https://www.cancertutor.com/Cancer02/EssentialOils.html)
29) Cannabis juice
+30) Ultraviolet light (UVA) – kills microbes in bloodstream (see: Ultraviolet Light)
+31) Vitamin C by I.V.
+32) Laetrile by I.V.
(Note: each protocol requires one alkaline protocol, use #1, #2 or #3 above, but NOT two of them)
#8) Shrink tumors
In many cases, tumors do not pose any danger to a cancer patient. However, in some cases tumors may be pressing on a vital organ, causing pressure in the brain, or for some other reason need to be shrunk safely. While many treatments shrink tumors, the problem for very dangerous tumors is that they frequently return again and again. To get rid of dangerous tumors once and for all it is necessary to kill the microbes and parasites in the organs so that the immune system can keep the dangerous tumors from coming back (see item #3 above).
Another very inexpensive item to shrink tumors is – DCA (Dichloroacetate), see: www.thedcasite.com (3 milligrams a day)
The best major cancer treatments to shrink tumors are the Cellect-Budwig or Dirt Cheap Protocol (especially the Kelmun Protocol). Mike Vrentas, who supports the Cellect-Budwig, is an expert at dealing with tumors. Likewise, the Kelmun Protocol has a history of being very good at shrinking tumors quickly.
A liver flush (see #3 above) is always required to make sure the tumors don't come back. Study this article:
Pau ‘d Arco, also called Lapacho or Taheebo tea also have some impressive testimonials.
The Cesium Chloride protocol is also very good, but it can cause temporary swelling before the tumor shrinks. So it is not appropriate if the tumor is in a dangerous location.
In the Dirt Cheap Protocol, the Kelmun Protocol, cannabis (e.g. medical marijuana – see the article on Hemp Oil) and DMSO/CD protocols (which can be used together) are very inexpensive ways to deal with shrinking tumors, but remember baking soda (Kelmun) is very alkaline and cannot be used at the same time as any other alkaline protocol.
The “Perfect Storm” protocol is a supercharged version of the DMSO/CD protocol:
Perfect Storm Protocol
If you do not have a High RF Frequency Protocol device I have had testimonials about the BCX Ultra (another Rife Machine) doing well at shrinking tumors.
Here is a simple protocol that may help shrink tumors:
1 liter of carrot juice a day, with the juice from 2 beets mixed in;
Garlic (from two bulbs), this has selenium in it;
2 cups of pineapple juice a day
Here is a simple protocol using cabbage leaves:
1) Role up to break branches
2) Soak in lukewarm water
3) Put on tumor daily for 2 weeks or so
Another idea is coconut oil and zinc.
There is also the “Silva Mind Control” process and the book: You the Healer. Don't underestimate your own mind.
The product Escozine (derived from Caribbean Blue Scorpion venom) is primarily used to shrink tumors. It comes from a Native American tribe and has been very successful. For a vendor Google: Escozine “blue scorpion”
This article about an herbal protocol also includes shrinking tumors: Habanero Peppers
Note about dangerous external tumors or slightly transdermal tumors: A near infra-red lamp (available at PetCo) can very quickly shrink a tumor, however, it can also be dangerous if tumor tissue ends up in the bloodstream. It can cause a heart attack. It is the family's decision whether shrinking the tumor using UVA is worth the slight risk. See also: Infra-red Vendor
Definitely, see this article: Shrink Tumors article
#9) Kill microbes inside of cancer cells
(See the “Treatments That Revert Cancer Cells Into Normal Cells” section)
#10) Treatments / supplements for weak patients
By the time many cancer patients find out about natural medicine they are already very weak from cachexia or a host of other reasons. Dealing with the weakness of these patients is frequently the biggest challenge of a natural cancer treatment. The GB 4000, Quantum Pulse (formerly “Vibe Machine”) and BioCharger are electromedicine devices to energize weak cells, whether cancerous or not. Also, there are a number of supplements that can energize cells or can bypass the lactic acid caused by cachexia. In some cases, dealing with the weakness of a cancer patient is a higher priority than dealing with the cancer cells themselves.
It was noted above that it is impossible to re-energize the cells in the organs until after the microbes and parasites in the organs are killed (see #3 above). However, this does not mean a person should not use an energizing machine until after these microbes are killed. A weak cancer patient needs all of their cells energized immediately by any means. The point is to use a cell energy device or supplements immediately, but to also immediately seek to kill the microbes and parasites in the organs.

#14) Work by lowering ATP energy
The very definition of a cancer cell is a cell with low ATP energy. Several cancer treatments lower the ATP energy even more and the cancer cells literally fall apart. However, other protocols which kill microbes inside the cancer cells can actually RAISE ATP energy because it is the microbes that cause the ATP energy of cancer cells to be low. Cancer treatments which kill the microbes will interfere with the treatments that lower ATP energy. Thus, treatments that lower ATP energy are generally used by themselves.
1) Graviola (Many Treatments Neutralize This Protocol)
2) Paw Paw (Many Treatments Neutralize This Protocol)
3) Protocel (Many Treatments Neutralize This Protocol)
4) Cantron (Many Treatments Neutralize This Protocol)
#15) Herbs for cancer
There are herbs in many of the cancer products, such as Essiac Tea. Here is a list of some of the common herbs used in treating cancer, not in any particular order. Which if them work by killing the cancer cells and which work by killing the microbes inside the cancer cells is usually not known.
Note: a (+) means there is significant evidence for this herb to treat cancer

#16) Natural cancer treatments
Because the Independent Cancer Research Foundation works with cancer patients all over the world, it is essential for us to develop long lists of cancer treatments so cancer patients in any country can obtain cancer treatments locally and quickly.
Many of these treatments are also very inexpensive.
- Liquid Protocols
- More Liquid Protocols
- Dirt Cheap Protocol
- Inexpensive Treatments
- More than 200 Natural Cancer Treatments (The “Big List”)
- Minnesota Wellness (aka International Wellness)
Also remember that some treatments are inexpensive because they replace the foods a person normally eats. The Brandt Grape Cure, using organic purple grapes or carrots, is an example. Another example is using foods high in oxalic acid as a major part of a cancer treatment.
Both purple grapes and carrots are high in oxalic acid. The “cancer diet” should be high in foods with oxalic acid: Buzzle Article On Oxalic Acid Foods
#17) Inexpensive cancer treatments
You would not believe how many cancer patients cannot afford any of the highly effective cancer treatments. Because of this, we have spent a great deal of time identifying highly effective, yet still inexpensive cancer treatments.
- Brandt Grape Cure (replaces foods you normally eat)
- MSM/LIPH (See #25 below)
- DMSO/CD (the crown jewel, but cannot be used with blood thinners – see Dirt Cheap Protocol)
- Aloe Arborescens (part of Dirt Cheap Protocol)
- Charcoal: Charcoal Remedies
- DCA (Dichloroacetate), see: www.thedcasite.com
The above items are only the “tip of the iceberg.” For far more inexpensive treatments see the items in these articles:
- Dirt Cheap Protocol (Many items cannot be used with blood thinners)
- See the Inexpensive Cancer Treatments article for more ideas
#18) Products to create stem cells (to replace damaged tissue)
1) Stem Enhance
2) Laminine (FGF)
3) Nopalae (TM product)
4) DMSO (helps regenerate nerve tissue, do not use with Chlorine Dioxide in this case)
5) Life Stem Genetics (LIFS)
6) Helichrysum essential oil – nerve regeneration (Veridas Botanicals)
#19) Dealing with brittle bones (e.g. bone cancer, bone marrow cancer)
1) Cellect-Budwig (major cancer treatment) – Cellect has the minerals needed to deal with brittle bones
2) Cesium Chloride (major cancer treatment) – The Wolfe Clinic includes minerals to deal with bones
3) Dr. True Ott, Ph.D. – Mother Earth Minerals – if not on Cellect-Budwig or Cesium Chloride
4) Product: “Bone Dense Calcium” (microcrystalline hydroxyapatite)
Bone Dense Calcium
5) Life Extension: Life Extension Mix + Super Booster
6) Silica (1 TBS/day)
7) Strontium Max (1 TBS/day)
8) Potassium Max (1 TBS/day) – needed to replenish serum Potassium if on Cesium protocol
9) Phosphorous concentrate (10 drops)
10) Indium concentrate (10 drops)
11) Selenium concentrate (10 drops)
12) Vanadium concentrate (10 drops)
13) Molybdenum concentrate (10 drops)
14) Rubidium concentrate (30 drops)
15) Germanium concentrate (30 drops)
#20) If still using chemotherapy and radiation (or recently quit)
1) Use MSM (MSM if chemo at clinic) or DMSO (DMSO if chemo at home) ONE HOUR BEFORE chemotherapy3) Avoid electromedicine while chemotherapy is in bloodstream (the High RF Frequency Generator with plasma amplifier is OK, however)
2) Avoid electromedicine while chemotherapy is in bloodstream (the High RF Frequency Generator with plasma amplifier is OK, however)
3) Coconut Water from young coconuts (electrolyte)
4) Search for products: Primo Defense, Defense Restore, DermoREPAIR Cream and RecovEnergy
5) Vitamin E (over 600 mg per day) is very useful
6) For radiation: add Miso and Green Clay
Study the “If Still on Chemo” article.
#21) Treatments for those on PICC lines
Patients who are fed through a PICC Line have two key criteria when choosing an alternative cancer treatment. First, it must be potent in small doses. Second, it must pass through the PICC Line, which would eliminate any protocols with honey, for example.
All of these items are mentioned on this website except as noted.
1) See this article: Article For Those on Liquid Diets
2) Cesium Chloride (powerful in low doses – pure liquid) – a major cancer treatment supported by an expert
3) Frequency Generators (the High RF Frequency Generator with Plasma Amplifier – “High RF Frequency Devices”) are electromedicine and nothing is taken orally – they revert cancer cells into normal cells among other things (see article on “High RF Frequency Protocol”)
4) Essiac Tea (see article)
5) Rick Simpson Hemp Oil (see article)
6) Pineapple Juice (2 cups a day) – Health Food Store
7) Asparagus (6 teaspoons a day) (see Dirt Cheap Protocol)
8) Six Lemons a Day (see Dirt Cheap Protocol)
9) Ultraviolet A light (see Dirt Cheap Protocol)
10) DMSO/CD (taken transdermally – see Dirt Cheap Protocol)
12) Vitamin C by I.V. (clinic treatment)
13) Oleander (see article)
14) LIPH (without MSM) (see Dirt Cheap Protocol)
17) Krill Oil
18) Laetrile in liquid form (see article)
1) Transfer Point Beta Glucan
#23) Unclog the lymph system
#24a) Other ideas
1) Product: F21 Natural Sugar Blocker blocks all cells from absorbing glucose
#24b) How to tell if your treatment is working
There are four tests to determine how much cancer you have. These tests are very, very important because by taking sequential tests (e.g. take a test now and once every 2 or 3 months) you can tell if your cancer is getting worse or if the treatment is working. If your cancer is getting worse then change protocols or add additional protocols.
It is important to take your chosen test NOW so that you have established a baseline for future comparisons.
1) The CA Profile – This blood and urine test measures a combination of 6 biomarkers
2) The Navarro Urine Test
3) Infrared Themographs
4) Barium Enema Test
5) Electro Interstitial Scanning (EIS)
The Navarro Urine test is not as accurate as the blood tests, but it is very useful because it is so inexpensive. Their website is: www.navarromedicalclinic.com
Infrared Thermographs (i.e. infrared cameras) can tell you exactly where cancer or tumors are located.
Infrared cameras highlight the “hot spots” where cancer is located. In some cases, you can find someone who has one or you can purchase one or you can rent one (www.flir.com). This option tells you where the cancer is.
Of course, a P.E.T. scan is the best option, but it does create a lot of radiation, so it is not recommended to be used very often.
Also, note that I did not mention PSA tests. PSA tests have been shown over and over to be useless, but orthodox medicine continues to use them. See this web page: Dr. Whitaker Article on PSA Test
Regardless of which test you use you should use the same test every time. If the score goes up, change cancer protocols or talk to the consultant you are working with.
Also see the article: “How Much Cancer Do You Have“.
#24c) Devices to determine exactly how many microbes (and where) are in your body
There are three devices to do this:
1) Life Systems (contact Mike Vrentas of Cellect-Budwig protocol)
3) Bio-Meridian (www.biomeridian.com)
#25) Prevent cancer
Just about any cancer treatment can be used to prevent cancer, but some are so simple to use, so effective and so inexpensive they stand-out at cancer prevention. These are actual cancer treatments that can be used to prevent cancer.
1) MSM/LIPH AND MSM/Vitamin C
(Note: MSM and LIPH, and Vitamin C should not be used with blood thinners)
2) Aloe Arborescens
4) ANY 6 items in the Dirt Cheap Protocol except baking soda/maple syrup and asparagus as a person should not have high levels of alkalinity, for long periods of time, unless they have cancer.
5) High Fiber Diet (but not using cereals)
6) Stop smoking (website): Drop Cigarettes Website
There is also an entire article on preventing cancer.
#26) Chelate Mercury (immune building)
Mercury / Thimerosal is a major cause of weak immune systems, brain disorders, some cases misdiagnosed as Lyme Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, etc.
Mercury is not a direct cause of cancer, but it may weaken the immune system, thus allowing a routine number of cancer cells to grow out of control. It has nothing to do with cancer at the cellular level.
There are other articles on this website which discuss Alzheimers and other brain-related issues which may be connected to mercury.
Here are treatments for mercury:
1) Find an ACAM doctor (www.acam.org)
2) EDTA Chelation – only at a clinic – use Google to find a clinic near you (e.g. “Kansas City” chelation)
3) Pure Body Extra Strength (by Touchstone Essentials)
4) Chlorella (plant, available in small pills – Kyoto brand)
5) Cilantro (use with Chlorella)
6) Lithium Orotate
7) Vitamin C
10) Detox Bath with LL's Magnetic Clay (bentonite) – Called: “Mercury 2 Detox Clay Bath”
WARNING: Take large amounts of colloidal minerals before doing detoxifying soaks.
#95) Get rid of every microbe in your body (super immune building but a slow process)
It is not uncommon for us to get an email from someone whose body has been “taken over” by microbes and parasites. This section will provide some ideas for dealing with this situation.
The only PROVEN way to get rid of every microbe in your bloodstream (and hopefully everywhere) is the Bob Beck Protocol, but it can take 6 months to do it.
Bob Beck Protocol (multiple pages)
While doing this you might be able to speed things up by adding some supplements from other sources.
For example, I would start these protocols immediately: MSM/Vitamin C Protocol
Also see this: MSM/LIPH Protocol
There is no problem with taking several protocols which contain MSM, its LD-50 (“safe level”) is sky high, so you could take 10 different protocols with MSM in it and be perfectly safe.
Ultraviolet Light: Ultraviolet Light
Entire Article on Killing Microbes in the Bloodstream: Kill Microbes (Article)
I would also look at the Dirt Cheap Protocol as it is loaded with things that kill microbes, but not if you are on blood thinners (MSM is also a blood thinner): Dirt Cheap Protocol (read warnings)
Also study this Reference Manual, especially items #3 above (YES – Many microbes and PARASITES hide in the organs) and #6 (kill microbes in the bloodstream).

5) Article: Why Everything You Know About Cancer Is Wrong (article)
6) Whale.to: World's Best Website On Cancer Politics (very massive website)
There are also Top Secret articles we cannot talk about. They were written only for court trials.
#A) Funding an expensive protocol
The financial product “Viaticle Settlement” — This financial tool allows a patient so sell a “whole life” insurance policy (on the life of the patient), or a term policy, group policy, etc. which can be converted into a whole life policy, into cash. Do not turn your policy into your insurance company as they will only give you a fraction of what it is worth. These are companies that may pay 50% of the face value of the policy now. See “How to Fund Your Treatment Without a Loan“.
This allows the cancer patient to benefit from their life insurance policy even to the point of helping to afford the most expensive treatments, such as the High RF Frequency Protocol, Cellect-Budwig with High RF Frequency Generator with Plasma Amplifier Protocol, Cesium Chloride with QRS (the QRS is primarily for pain), etc.
#B) “Will to live,” addiction recovery and other psychological issues
It is hard to imagine how much damage is done to a cancer patient when they are told something like this by orthodox medicine: “you have 6 months to live.”
With natural medicine, the focus in on family and friends giving the cancer patient a strong “will to live.” Only positive things should be told to a patient and naysayers should be politely told to mind their own business.
Dr. Ryke Geerd Hamer was the person who really pushed this concept and he made it very clear that a strong “will to live” was a major part of the healing process. It is called the “German New Medicine.”
Family and friends should not be allowed to say negative things about the patient's survival. All communication must be positive and upbeat.
Is addition, things like Yoga and other exercises will take the mind off of cancer and will help develop a positive mental attitude.
#C) Other major natural medicine websites
Note #1: Zappers, Pulsers, and Rife Machines
The Cullen Zapper is a 1 Hz square wave zapper. This is very effective at killing microbes, but you cannot buy one. Mr. Cullen died in 2012, but the Independent Cancer Research Foundation had someone make a schematic of his device if you can find someone to build it. Just contact us.
However, it is possible that 4 Hz square wave zappers may be more effective. The Bob Beck “Blood Purifier” is a 4 Hz Zapper, but it is not as powerful as the Cullen Zapper. We do not know of a vendor of a 4 Hz Zapper which is as powerful as the Cullen Zapper. The Cullen Zapper has proven it is excellent at killing microbes in the bloodstream in actual use.
However, these devices do not have carrier waves so they are very similar to a Bob Beck Blood Purifier and only kill or attenuate microbes as they are passing through the bloodstream or are in other parts of the body.
The High RF Frequency Generator with Plasma Amplifier and High RF Frequency Generator with Linear Amplifier do have a carrier wave and can be programmed to run at 4 Hz or any other frequency. These devices can kill microbes anywhere in the body, including inside the cancer cells (which allows the cancer cells to revert into normal cells).
While there are more than 100 brands of “Rife Machines” mentioned on the Internet, the two High RF Frequency Generator devices are the only ones the Independent Cancer Research Foundation is aware of that have the powerful carrier wave to pass through the body and kill microbes inside the cancer cells to revert them into normal cells.
When the Independent Cancer Research Foundation gets more funding, we will do more research on these technologies at the university level with an approved IRB study.
Where to Buy the Independent Cancer Research Foundation “Research Model” High RF Frequency Generator and Plasma Tube Amplifier:
Go to the vendor’s website that sells the High RF Frequency Generator and oscillator 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.
Note #2: Running the 4 Hz Bob Beck Frequency on either High RF Frequency Generator device
For those who want to run the 4Hz Bob Beck Frequency on either High RF Frequency Generator device (and it is strongly recommended for the High RF Frequency Generator with linear amplifier), enter these commands:
Press 120 (DURATION MIN.)
Press ENTER (key)
Press 4 (key)
Press RUN (key)
This will run this frequency for 2 hours (i.e. 120 minutes). You can adjust the time as desired. Using the High RF Frequency Generator with a linear amplifier should be far more effective than the Bob Beck Blood Purifier. It should also be effective with the High RF Frequency Generator with plasma amplifier.
Note #3: DMSO / CD
We cannot say this often enough, in the DMSO / CD protocol the “CD” stands for chlorine dioxide. Chlorine dioxide is a gas, NOT a liquid. It only stays as a gas for about half-an-hour because it quickly evaporates. Because the DMSO / CD uses chlorine dioxide once an hour, the chlorine dioxide must be made fresh every hour.
EVERY cancer patient should use the DMSO / CD protocol transdermally unless they are on blood thinners or other prescription drugs which are not recommended to be used with DMSO. The “dose” can be increased to 2x or 3x the recommended dose and can even be increased to 5x in some cases. If there was only one cancer treatment on earth, this would be it.
Note #4: Cleaning the colon
Exactly how much benefit cancer patients get from cleaning out their colon is unknown. We have not seen enough clear-cut examples of curing cancer by cleaning the colon, though it could help build the immune system.
In any case, here is a list four very good resources for cleaning out the colon, and there are likely much more:
1) Alpha Omega's Liver / Colon Cleansing Program (site: www.altcancer.net/cleanse0.htm)
2) Stevia (the sweetener) – a herb – see the Dirt Cheap Protocol for more information
3) Fire In the Belly (a book by Dr. Keith Scott-Mumby, M.D.)
4) Homozone (a combination of magnesium and oxygen)
Note #5: Websites with many references
Here is a website that has key information about FDA recalls, warnings, hazardous interactions, and other important information about your prescriptions and medications. Recall Guide constantly monitors over 68,000 over-the-counter prescriptions and medications to keep its users safe and conscious about their drugs. Recall Guide
Another website that offers not only recall information but also information on side effects and dangerous drugs is Recall Report.
This is a website in a foreign country, but most of it is in English. It has hundreds of references to articles about natural cancer treatments: Scientific Studies
Note #6: Should you design your own cancer protocol? No!
We have received many emails from cancer patients who designed their own cancer treatment based on information from this website. This is not a good idea.
The biggest mistake we see is people who do not have enough individual treatments in their overall protocol. For example, they may use only 6 or 7 (or less) items from the Dirt Cheap Protocol. While it is true that many of the items in the Dirt Cheap Protocol have cured cancer by themselves, these cures were generally on cancer patients who had a slow growing cancer, had not had any orthodox cancer treatments, etc. The patients we deal with generally need more than a dozen of the items.
Another common error is including too many alkaline protocols. A cancer treatment should only include ONE highly alkaline protocol per day. For the first week, more than one is fine, but that is only for one week. Cellect, Cesium Chloride, Baking Soda, Asparagus (and just about any green vegetable), Coral Calcium, etc. are all highly alkaline. Patients should be aware of the symptoms of alkalosis.
As is mentioned elsewhere in this article, someone in the family should be designed the “researcher” and should actually study the relevant articles.
If you use the Dirt Cheap Protocol or any other protocol, follow the instructions carefully. The Dirt Cheap Protocol requires at least 14 items. Our protocols (e.g. Cellect-Budwig, Dirt Cheap Protocol, etc.) have been designed by people with many years of natural medicine cancer research and who have worked with many, many cancer patients.
Note #7: Odd items
We have heard that migraines (i.e. migraine headaches) can be caused by parasites in the brain. Hopefully, a liver flush (discussed above) can deal with them. The herbs, etc. in a liver flush are designed to kill parasites anywhere in the body.
