Sprouts: Eat two jars full per day. Sprouts are a complete protein, a complete food. A person could survive on a variety of sprouts and nothing else. Buy untreated seed. Alfalfa is a good one to start with, but include wheat, lentil, mung bean, clover, cabbage and radish. Each day start two more jars. Harvest alfalfa at the end of 4-7 days; the others may be ready sooner. Eat them in a sandwich or as the base of a salad. Dressings and garnishes are okay. Collect 12-15 wide-mouth quart jars and start farming. Ann Wigmore’s books will tell you how to sprout, and why.
Eat as many as you wish, any kind, any time.
Whole grain breads, namely100% whole wheat; brown rice; whole wheat pasta.
J. Special Vegetables:
Eat all the cauliflower, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, kale and broccoli that you can. Research confirm!s that these "cruciform vegetables" are naturally rich in several phytochemicals that are like "plant chemotherapy." They fight tumors.
The other exceptionally fine food class is the legumes: peas, beans and lentils. They are loaded with fiber, protein, minerals, and complex carbohydrates. And, they are really cheap. Eat lots.
K. Good Snacks
Popcorn, fresh, unsalted popcorn. On it put 2 tsp. nutritional yeast flakes which give the popcorn a cheesy taste and additional B-vitamins, chromium and selenium.
Raw Veggies. Keep a tray of all your favorites in the center of your fridge, where you can reach it 24 hours per day. Celery, carrots, peppers, broccoli, black olives, tomatoes, snap peas, etc.
Vegetable juices, fresh and raw. (Whenever you cook, or bottle, or can anything, you destroy its natural food enzymes.)
Fruit juices, fresh
Spring water or mineral water
Green tea or decaf black tea
Vitamins are food supplements or food concentrates. They are not drugs, so the margin for safety is excellent.
Begin with 200 IU of natural mixed tocopherols and gradually work up to about1,000 IU daily. If you are on an anticoagulant drug (such as Coumadin), or if you are on medication for high blood pressure, it is likely that your vitamin and drug doses will need to be tailored over a period of weeks. You can quite easily monitor your blood pressure at home, and your doctor can and should check your prothrombin time for you. Occasionally blood pressure goes up slightly in folks not used to Vitamin E. Know that it is usually temporary. Reduce the Vitamin E for a while, then resume a leisurely increase. If your protime gets too long, have your doctor reduce the drug dose, not the vitamin. Vitamin E greatly reduces the side effects of radiation therapy. Vitamin E is the body's number one antioxidant, very valuable in slowing tumor growth and slowing the spread of malignancies. You will very much want to read Vitamin E for Ailing and Healthy Hearts, by Wilfrid Shute, M.D., or any other book by him or his physician brother, Evan. They will walk you through the whole process.
If your physician says you need iron, take ferrous gluconate or ferrous fumarate iron tablets, which would replace your current prescription of harder-to-handle ferrous sulfate. Chelated iron tablets are better absorbed, therefore, better utilized by the body. Iron is best absorbed if taken with vitamin C but not at the same time as Vitamin E.
Begin with 1,000 mg a meal for a total of 3,000 mg per day. Your goal is bowel tolerance, which may be anywhere between 20,000 to l00,000 mg per day or even higher. It would be ideal to take some Vitamin C every half hour you are awake, which is a real nuisance. Do the best you can to divide the dose for maximum absorption. For maximum stomach comfort, I strongly recommend a “buffered” vitamin C supplement for persons taking a lot. Instead of tablets, try Vitamin C powder for economy and a "fewer pills to take" feeling. Mix the powder in a sweet beverage such as fruit juice. Take the amount of Vitamin C needed to feel better, to show improved lab tests, and to get well. Patients in remission should continue taking it for life. There are two meanings to that statement. Do not be put off this valuable adjunctive therapy by unscientific scare tactics. Please be certain to read Cancer and Vitamin C by Ewan Cameron and Linus Pauling.
The Carotenes and Lycopene
Until you can get a juicer, eat lots of yams, sweet potatoes and winter squash. These are all very high in all the natural carotenes, not just the best known beta- form. Tomatoes, preferably uncooked, are loaded with lycopene, which is even more valuable than carotene. Studies in
Only a minuscule amount is needed, generally around 300 micrograms. A microgram is a millionth of a gram. Selenium works closely with vitamin E. Avoid excesses; more is
not better in this case.
The zinc in your multivitamin (perhaps 15 mg?) is low. Take 50 mg of zinc gluconate or preferably zinc monomethionine. Work up to a goal of perhaps 100 mg per day. Zinc reduces postsurgical healing time and profoundly strengthens the immune system.
Calcium and Magnesium
Tablets can be used to conveniently buffer between-meal vitamin C doses. 1,500 mg of calcium and 500 mg of magnesium is a good target amount. Divide the doses as much as humanly possible, including snacktime and bedtime. Your body will absorb it much more efficiently that way.
Vitamin B Complex
Take one balanced B-50 tablet with each meal, at least. If you are on intense drug therapy or are very fatigued, you can take additional Bs between meals. Patients on chemotherapy report greatly reduced nausea and much less hair loss when they take their B-vitamins (and C). You have to try this to believe it.
If you get diarrhea, ease up on the vitamin C or the vegetable juices. If not sure which, decrease one, then the other, to confirm! which you actually need to reduce. Bear in mind that diarrhea may be due to radiation or chemotherapy treatments. Cheese tends to help stop simple diarrhea. Chronic diarrhea requires medical attention.
If you need to sweeten something, try a little honey, sweet molasses or pure maple syrup.
Give this protocol a full four months trial, with your 100% effort, before giving it your final eval!uation.
Don't eat anything without reading the label. Don't eat anything unless you know what it is. If you cannot pronounce it, don't eat it.
If your medical doctor is not familiar with orthomolecular (megavitamin) nutrition, hand him or her books, with the bookmarks stuck throughout, and ask, "Have you read what we've read?" Let Dr. Pauling and Dr. Hoffer and Dr. Williams and Dr. Gerson and Dr. Cameron do the talking. When you go to battle, don’t go without your best soldiers. If you are still unfamiliar with these physicians and their work, you are not ready to fight.
Do not smoke. Stop, or at least cut down, immediately.
Avoid alcoholic beverages (However, organically-produced red wine in moderation is a reasonable compromise. It is best to dilute it with two parts water before drinking. Grape juice is good, too!)
Eat no artificial colorings.
Avoid any food with preservatives.
Do not consume aspartame (“Nutri-Sweet”).
Never eat any product containing saccharine, which has been found to cause cancer in laboratory animals.
Who gets the credit (or blame?) for this therapy? Certainly not me, although I'd love to take the bow. But no, this is the collected, derivative work of many researchers. I'm not smart enough to come up with all this. I am just barely smart enough to find out who is getting good results... and suggest you copy them.
And that is about all I do.
The results never cease to impress me. Take Joe, for instance. Joe had terminal lung cancer, and no mistake. He was so constantly coughing up blood that he had a mostly red handkerchief in his hand all the while I talked with him in the living room of his small suburban home. Joe was too sick to come in to my office. In fact, he was too sick to get out of his recliner. In was in this chair that his life was played out, day and night. He could not walk. He was in too much pain to even lie down. He spent the night in his chair. He did not want to eat. Oddly enough, he did still want to live, and he was willing to try even vitamins if they would help him feel any better.
It was October and the leaves, orange and bright yellow, were falling outside the picture window as we talked. The TV was on, and some of the family was visiting. It is never easy to work with the dying. As a student, 20 years ago, I'd seen enough of them at the
"How much?" Joe croaked.
"As much as humanly possible under the circumstances," I replied. I explained bowel tolerance to him, and answered the usual questions from the family. Most centered on how well would it work. Some were understandably skeptical; some were in overly-optimistic denial.
"If I had the sure cure for cancer, I'd be on the cover of Time magazine," I cautioned them gently. "Vitamin C is very much worth using, with due consideration of how sick Joe really is."
All agreed that Joe had nothing to lose.
Here is what happened.
Within days, Joe stopped coughing up the blood. If the C had done nothing else, this alone would have been more than enough benefit. But there was more good news within the week.
"Joe's appetite is back," said his wife. "And he is able to lie down in the bed now. He says he is sleeping much better and in much less pain."
Wonderful news, especially if you were Joe. Over and over I have seen profound pain relief and dramatic improvement in sleeping in terminal patients that take huge doses of C. Again, if the C did nothing else, these benefits would be indisputable arguments for using it.
A week or so later, I heard still more news.
"Joe is able to walk around the house with a cane. He's even walking around the yard!"
His wife was quite emotional as she spoke. She knew, at some level, as we all did, that Joe was not likely to survive such severe cancer. And in the end, he didn't. But he added to his length of life, and the quality of that life was extraordinarily enhanced by the vitamin C. He never did all the stuff I enumerated earlier in this chapter; he couldn't. But he was determined to manage taking the C, and he did.
Oh, yes: how much did he take? About 4,000 milligrams every half hour he was awake, day or night. That is approaching 100,000 mg a day. He had a big jug of water, a big spoon, a big glass, and a big bottle of vitamin C crystals on the table right next to his recliner.
Joe never got diarrhea.
