Liver Cancer: Budwig Diet or Other Remedy?

Posted by Anonymous (Anonymous) on 12/05/2011

Hi Ted, I came across your email on the EarthClinic Network and was hoping you could provide some advice.

My father was diagnosed a few weeks ago with liver cancer (they think it is primary based on ultrasound and CT scan-still waiting to do a biopsy) and it seems late stage as doctor said he may have only a few months to live up to 12 months. I started my dad on the Budwig diet after searching the net in desperation. Do you think the Budwig is worth trying and do you have other suggestions?

I am desperate so trying anything, as conventional medicine says that there is really nothing that can be done (other than perhaps gaining a few months via chemo, etc.). Appreciate any input you may have.

Ted, my dad says for last few days he feels very nauseous. His digestive system is not working well. Anything I can give to help the nausea? I believe nausea is symptom of liver cancer.

Also, my dad takes once in a while sleeping pill from doctor to try and help sleep. Can he take melatonin in addition to the sleeping pill (taken once in a while)? The sleeping pill is very strong so knocks him out at least for a few hours a night so I think if he only takes melatonin he still will not be able to sleep because the night sweats keep him up as well as his digestive problems.

Thanks."


12/09/2011: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "Yes, for nausea vitamin C every hour. 500 mg minimum. He needs more melatonin, in fact even needs in day although smaller. Magnesium chlorides is for too much sweats. The failure of digestive system, he needs digestive enzymes. B complex for energy, and granulated lecithin.

is there anything to take to try and increase hemoglobin count (iron capsules wont work because anemia is from cancer or bleeding caused by cancer and not normal anemia causes).

thanks"


12/09/2011: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "if it is magnesium citrate is fine. Chlorophyll is used to increase iron, but blood soups from chickens or pork blood soup too.

12/16/2011: Anonymous replies: "this article shows NAC could be good against cancer but the other email I sent shows some doctor writing how it is bad for cancer patients.

i now have the threonine, NAC and lysine so should i administer as suggested before? is there an issue with NAC?"


12/17/2011: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "NAC is pretty consistent in cancer, It controls blood sugar which is extremely important in cancer treatment. Yes you should administer as before. The only complaints I have about this is it needs to be improved, but the results are consistent. There is something you might try, but the results varies, which is baking soda 1/4 teaspoon after every meal 30 minutes.

It also helps if at least gymnema slyvestre is taken at 400 mg x 2 a day.

Actually I have had my best successes in trying to contain liver cancer along with breast cancer, and Thailand as far as I know of has the highest liver cancer in the world due to hepatitis B infection from sharing drinking water, which is a widespread practice in the province. The cause of liver cancer from hepatitis B is of viral origin, but they can come from other sources. That's why they kill cancer patients fast, the other one is pancreatic cancer.

The protocol is two-fold to get survival. For one, 97% of cancer people are also diabetic (defined as blood sugar of more than 90 mg/dL) and 97% of all people die within the year with blood sugar more than that.

Getting the sugar down is the primarily vehicle, in fact most supplements that help diabetes have anticancer properties for that very reason. The second thing is to limit the cancer spread. The third is to have some cancer apoptosis. This is the most important two steps, the third one is just to shrink the tumor.

The limiting of sugar is to limit fruits (especially high fructose beer, whiskey, corn syrup (found in ketchup)). In fact after the 1980s fructose has steadily replaced sugar as food manufactures reduce costs, and now it is a worldwide epidemic affecting even children. Chromium is best and is taken 1000 mcg, preferably chromium chlorine, or chromium polynicotinate. The second one is 5 mg per day of vanadyl sulfate, and the third is 1 teaspoon of granulated lecithin. The fourth integrated in the case of metastatic cancer is the N acetyl cysteine, which is another limiting amino acid along with lysine, so both of these are deficient in human diets and animal diets, especially lysine.

The liver cancer can be self contained and non metastatic, with the following, assuming my dose it is 1/3 teaspoon of lysine, 1/4 teaspoon of threonine, 1/8 teaspoon of N acetyl cysteine. These are mixed together and taken hourly for four hours in the morning and taken hourly for three hours in the evening. This is needed for at least 3 days, once the condition has gotten less it may be reduced such as hourly for 3 hours in the evening and maybe 3 times in the morning, or just hourly for four doses once in the day time. But after three days, glutamine can be given, at 1/4 teaspoon x 3 times a day. Glutamine will help recovery further and lessen muscle loss.

The liver needs B complex vitamins, preferably B50 maybe the first 3 days, such as 3 times a day, and then just once a day, until appetite picks up. Once appetite picks up we can reduce the dose to perhaps once a week.

What I know about Budwig diets, it works on certain cancers and certain dog cancers reduce very quickly, but it doesn't have the consistency. There is a lot more to the remedies depending on the condition of the diets, and may need other substances, such as green tea extract, snake grass, and others. The hydrogen peroxide is one I may use--3% in one capful per liter of water and give him 15 cc every 30 minutes.

This is the minimum you need for now, or you will be too busy hunting down the supplements. There's a lot of supplements out there, and some are not safe if you look at the ingredients, such as calcium phosphate is one common additive. For one thing phosphates make cancer worse, along with calcium. Then there is CoQ10 that is so popular, unfortunately they contain soybean oil, vegetable oils and most oils generally are required for cancer TO GROW. The one possible exception is flaxseed oil, but not in the way you imagine. It is subject to oxidation very easily, and once it goes into the body they are taken up by cancer cells and there oxidized, and hence the cancer cells are killed by a Trojan horse. And there are fake cancer cures such as baking soda with maple syrup. The reason is simple most people are diabetic, why give more? Baking soda is actually a poor alkalization methods to kill cancer cells, it actually helps support pancreatic functions, but not cancer cells directly. Pancreatic functions support enzymes (chymotrypsin and trypsin) which digest cancer cells, only when the body has sufficient B vitamins. To get to cancer cells requires something more alkaline such as sodium citrate (for pain from lactic acid produced by cancer cells) and potassium citrate to drive out excess water within cancer cells, thus reducing the size of the tumor. Cancer cells need sugar and that's why tumors are large, it has to access more sodium to get sugar in, by doing the opposite you kill cancer cells, if they can be given topically it would be DMSO 30 cc, with one drop of lavender oil and aloe vera, to help inflammation.

But for emergency purposes the protocol I mentioned will be more than enough. There is one more, lemon oil with baking soda works better also, the D limonene kills cancer cells, just a couple of drops with baking soda. If too nauseating then add some citric acid. That would be fine too.

What I know is there is no liver cancer success at all from Chemotherapy, and morphine would invariably kill all patients by reducing the immune systems. Before you consider gambling with your life, I suggest that the odds are in your favor before you go against the house.

Thank you Ted for your quick reply. I really appreciate it as I am desperate to help my dad-if it is at all possible. To be clear, he should take the following for now:

  • 1/3 teaspoon of lysine, 1/4 teaspoon of threonine, 1/8 teaspoon of N acetyl cysteine. These are mixed together and taken hourly for four hours in morning and taken hourly for three hours in the evening. This is needed for at least 3 days, once the conditions has gotten less it may be reduced such as hourly for 3 hours in evening and may 3 in the morning, or just hourly for four doses once in the day time. But after three days, glutamine can be given, at 1/4 teaspoon x 3 times a day. Glutamine will help recovery further and lessen muscle loss.
  • The liver needs B complex, preferably B50 maybe the first 3 days, such as 3 times a day, and then just once a day, until appetite picks up. Once appetite picks up we can reduce the dose to perhaps once a week.
  • chromium polynicotinate 1000 mcg per day
  • 5 mg per day of vanadyl sulfate
  • 1 teaspoon of granulated lecithin per day

Can you please tell me if the above are the correct ingredients and doses for now?

Also, when you put lysine, threonine and n acetyl cysteine together, do you put it in some drink? Can I put it into fresh juiced carrot juice?

Can we continue also with the Budwig diet in addition to the supplements you note?

I will try to find all these ingredients in our stores now. Thank you."


12/06/2011: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "Yes, your ingredients list is correct, that is the minimum dose as a lot of emails were designed for people with limited means.

Also, when you put lysine, threonine and n acetyl cysteine together, do you put it in some drink? Can I put it into fresh juiced carrot juice?

You can, the common ones are fresh carrot juice, broccoli juice and green apple juice mixed together.

Can we continue also with the Budwig diet in addition to the supplements you note?

You can, but my mixture is different from Budwig, it is with flaxseed oil with enough granulated lecithin for the oil to dissolve completely, instead of cottage cheese because those are harder to take. It helps if vitamin C is taken throughout.

Infections come easily with liver cancer, because with any surgery or any infections the liver cancer patient also dies usually in a month, I would therefore take care to avoid any surgery or take serious care of any cuts, and infections such as respiratory conditions. They are taxing on the immune system.

Ted, A cancer researcher in the US (with a University in Florida) suggested going on a ketogenic diet to try and fight the cancer. Here is the scientific theory supporting it: http://www.nutritionandmetabolism.com/content/7/1/7

I did not put my dad on this as was confused. There is so many people saying to do so many different things-I thought maybe the best chance was the Budwig diet but now I see that you suggest replacing flaxseeds with lecithin in the Budwig diet and also perhaps having my dad start on the ketogenic diet. I wonder if we should start my dad on the ketogenic diet right now or simply start on the supplements you told him to use and follow the Budwig diet but replace flax with lecithin. I think the Budwig diet is very low in carbohydrates unless I am mistaken.
Thank you."


12/06/2011: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "No, it is to replace the cottage cheese with lecithin. Actually, the ketogenic diet is a fancy word for a carb free diet. I don't make a big deal with that, but in order of importance you avoid fructose, glucose, sugar, and complex carbs, if it's that bad. But most important is you have two measurements, the fasting blood glucose and the one hour after meal test. The one hour after meal test determines if the food is healthy for you, so I don't exactly go on a ketogenic diet per se, I look at individual responses to various diets and things to avoid. Its more accurate that way. Again I don't generally see any consistency in the Budwig diet. Lysine, threonine, N acetyl cysteine, and perhaps green tea extract works across the board, the other is getting the sugar down with N acetyl cysteine. chromium, and perhaps vanadium. However if taken with vanadium, it has to be taken with ginger. Liver cancer, especially needs B50 for energy and nutrition, or the clients get into a cycle of cachexia, or gets infected, or morphine use and that is a deadly thing to do.
