If you or a loved one has recently been diagnosed with cancer, then you are in a life-altering situation. The author found himself in such a crisis in September 2013. After years of living with chronic acid reflux, he discovered he had a very deadly cancer and set himself on a quest to be healed. This book is a story about his insufferable journey with cancer. It reveals numerous scientifically based things cancer patients can do safely at home, to substantially improve their odds of winning their battle with cancer. These are things the author discovered along the way that he wishes he had known much earlier. He is sharing this information in the hope that it will significantly reduce the suffering of many, and prolong their lives beyond anything conventional treatment can provide alone.

What distinguishes this book is that the author exposes things that are little known by most people and are not part of the national discussion, nor are they a part of the conventional cancer treatment system. Although the author is not part of the medical profession, he has an extensive background in science and mathematics, and has spent a good part of his professional career teaching, researching, and writing about technical subjects. The spectacular discoveries in this book are carefully broken down into a context that is easy to understand.

When someone experiences a bone jarring collision with cancer, they all ask the same question. What do I do now? Such a simple question begs for a simple answer. Simple answers however, are oftentimes mockingly elusive. Instead of a simple answer, most find themselves immersed in a massive and convoluted maze of information, with no clear answers and nowhere to turn. For each question that is answered, five more pop up. For those overwhelmed by indecision and lack of knowledge, this book will empower them to boldly take control of their treatment plan. They will be shown clear steps to take immediately.  

Concurrent with a crisis of information overload, every patient is confronted with the reality that every single day it takes to get into treatment, the cancer continues to grow at an alarming rate, frequently eight or more times faster than normal cells. Tumors have no switches to turn off––or cords to pull––or circuits to break. Something needs to intervene on the patient’s behalf to stop the tumor from invading every area of the body and starving the patient to death. Every day the patient waits to get into treatment matters––and it matters a lot. Just think of what someone’s outcome might be if they were able to reduce the rate of growth of their tumor or even stop it dead in its track, prior to entering treatment. This book provides scientifically proven countermeasures that speak powerfully to this problem and also the problem of preventing recurrence. Such is the cornerstone of this book––to empower patients with knowledge that may make the difference between life and death.

Specifically, this book summarizes critical holistic antidotes that cancer patients can do immediately to attack their cancer, slow its rate of growth, reverse its growth and even cure it, using a highly alkaline Hybrid Cancer Diet, therapeutic levels of exercise, and targeted natural substances. In particular, the Hybrid Cancer Diet exploits vaguely known metabolic abnormalities of cancer that have been neglected in the war against cancer, and on its own, has the potential to substantially improve a patient’s outcome. If this diet is implemented prior to the time a patient enters treatment, it is entirely possible for the patient to downgrade their tumor. A downgraded tumor means the treatment has a much greater opportunity to be effective. When these holistic antidotes are added to a conventional, integrative or alternative cancer treatment regimen, they produce a prescription for an optimal outcome.

The reader will also find extensive discussions on: two key contributors to cancer, poor digestion and chronic inflammation––the harshness of conventional treatment––how sodium bicarbonate can be used as a weapon against cancer––how to fortify the body to prevent cancer and its recurrence––and what to do if it comes back. It also reveals cutting-edge early detection cancer blood tests that are not offered by conventional medicine, namely, chemo sensitivity testing and natural substance sensitivity testing, along with information on where to get these tests. Also included is a list of extensively researched alternative cancer treatment centers that are available in the United States. This information will save patients hundreds of hours of research trying to sort through the mountain of information on the Internet, as well as equip them with enough knowledge to provide a departure point for exploring safer holistic options.

In sum, the holistic prescriptions in this book not only attack cancer prior to treatment and make the treatment more effective, they reduce the side effects of chemo, radiation and surgery, help the patient prevent recurrence, and afford the patient a realistic alternative cancer treatment option if they should fail conventional treatment.

Too many people are needlessly dying of cancer, who would have lived longer if they had been equipped with the right information. In this regard, knowledge is power. This book will empower you with the freedom to take control of your cancer and live. Are you ready? Let’s take a closer look and learn how to have victory over cancer!

Inflammation and Cancer


Have you ever rolled out of bed in the morning feeling sluggish and bloated like one of those cartoon-character balloons in a Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade? I have. My fingers would sometimes swell up like little sausages and my ankles would morph into cankles. However, those days are long gone since radically changing my diet. The chronic inflammation is under control. So what’s all the fuss about?

Inflammation is a well-known causative factor in cancer due to impaired circulation and the resulting accumulation of DNA altering toxins. Inflammation reduces the body’s ability to move red and white blood cells into and out of an inflamed area, which reduces the body’s ability to promote healthy cell growth, healing, and the removal of pathogens. Chronic inflammation is bad. Most do not understand this, that inflammation is a precursor to numerous maladies of the body, especially cancer. Long standing inflammation is also closely associated with chronic conditions such as diabetes, arthritis and obesity. According to the National Cancer Institute, “Over time chronic inflammation can cause DNA damage and lead to cancer.”1 Moreover, “Recent data has expanded the concept that inflammation is a critical component of tumor progression. Many cancers arise from sites of infection, chronic irritation and inflammation.”2 The public remains terribly uninformed on the perils of chronic inflammation.

Millions of people walk the earth each day with absolutely no clue as to why they can’t lose weight, even though they hardly eat anything. This is especially true for millions who have their thyroid tested and the test comes back negative for underactive thyroid. Their doctors give them a clean bill of health because their blood work looks good. Patients continue to trudge along stupefied as to what is going on with their body. Thus, this chapter will educate patients on some of the most prominent food related causes of systemic inflammation. It will not cover everything, but focus primarily on food allergies. Specifically, this Chapter will not discuss a number of allergies that may occur from toxins in the environment, such as harmful chemicals in women’s health and beauty products, carpets and building materials, electromagnetic and radio frequency fields, pollens, second hand smoke, and long-term use of prescription drugs. You can do your own research on this. Americans are also exposed to pollutants being carried over the ocean by upper wind currents from poorly filtered industrial plants in China, including dirty coal-fired plants. 

Accordingly, how do you know if you have an allergy to something? You can get tested by an Allergist, or cut the suspected offending substance out for a period of time and then go back on it to see if you notice any difference. A number of experts recommend that we should abstain from the suspected allergen for at least three weeks before going back on it.

Two of the main offenders, gluten and dairy, are a good place to start. If I eat a couple of servings of wheat-based pasta noodles with loads of cheese on it, and garlic bread, preceded by a cheese and cracker afternoon snack, by the next day, my nose gets runny, I sneeze a lot, my fingers swell up, and my stomach feels bloated. I also gained about three to four pounds and become baffled as to how it happened. What I didn’t know was that my immune system goes into a tizzy when my intestine experiences gluten and dairy. My body starts producing lots of histamines and I experience an allergic reaction. Just as I got used to living with chronic acid reflux, I got used to living with chronic inflammation, in large part because I didn’t understand all of the symptoms, nor did I understand that in both instances they are precursors to cancer. I cannot help but wonder how much better my health might have been, if I had not spent the last 30 years eating wheat and dairy products every day.

It’s time to learn some fascinating things about common foods people are allergic to. Are you ready? Let’s get started. . . .

Sodium Bicarbonate And Cancer


Sodium bicarbonate, otherwise known as Baking Soda, is an ancient substance used for a myriad of purposes. The early Egyptians were one of the first civilizations to use this substance for mummification, cleaning, and personal hygiene. In the early 20th Century it was frequently used to treat colds and the flu, with many reporting remarkable recoveries. It remains one of the cheapest and most versatile substances in any household.

Did You Know? Some of the most common uses of Baking Soda:

– Used in cooking as a leavening agent.

– Widely used as an antacid for indigestion, heartburn and an upset stomach.

– Commonly used in laundry detergents and as an overall disinfectant for cleaning sinks, bathrooms, and other household surfaces.

– Strong antifungal and antiparasitical agent in the colon.

– It helps the kidneys get rid of uric acid, and helps prevent gout and kidney stones.

– Used to treat acidosis in the hospital, amongst other things.

– Commonly used in place of toothpaste for whitening teeth and as an ingredient in some toothpaste brands.

– May be used to treat bee and bug bites.

– It is a well-known stain remover on clothing and carpets.

– Can be used as an exfoliate on the skin.


Even after a century of replacing holistic medical approaches with modern pharmacology, traditional medicine still uses sodium bicarbonate in the hospital. It is employed to treat metabolic acidosis, a very dangerous acidic level in the body, by slowing loss of kidney function and improving patient nutritional status.1 Hospitals also use sodium bicarbonate to treat various drug overdoses, excessive potassium levels, crush injuries, positional asphyxia and Taser injuries.2 Sodium bicarbonate is an important medicine used by emergency medical technicians and emergency rooms throughout the world, specifically in heart attack patients. The use of sodium bicarbonate in conjunction with epinephrine is well studied since 1968, and is an extremely effective treatment for out of hospital cardiac arrests when chest compressions and Automated External Defibrillators do not work.3 Cardiac arrest causes the body to produce excessive amounts of lactic acid resulting in acidosis. Sodium bicarbonate quickly reverses this condition.

So how does sodium bicarbonate neutralize lactic acid? When sodium bicarbonate is taken orally, it interacts with hydrochloric acid in the stomach and produces sodium, carbon dioxide and bicarbonate. The bicarbonate is what is absorbed into the body and its pH is about 8.5.4 When bicarbonate is introduced into the body to treat a heart attack, it converts the excess lactic acid into a form of carbonic acid, which then breaks down into carbon dioxide (CO2) and water. Excess CO2 is absorbed into blood plasma, taken to the lungs and expelled. Excess water is removed by the lymphatic system.5 The ability of sodium bicarbonate to safely and quickly change the body’s pH from a dangerous acidic state into a more neutral state is why it is such a powerful medicine.

Although not recognized as a cancer treatment in Western medicine, one study showed sodium bicarbonate effective in reducing side effects and weight loss when used as a pre-treatment for intravenous Cisplatin in treating animal cancers.6 In holistic medicine however, sodium bicarbonate is used for treating fungal and parasitic infections of the digestive tract, diabetes, and numerous other diseases, including cancer.  

Did You Know? A Hindu medical book, the Astanga Hrdayam, in its first volume of three, the Sutra Sthana & Sarira Sthana, was written over 1,000 years ago and prescribes “alkali of strong potency” to treat cancer.7


Now it’s time to take a look at a world-renowned, yet controversial oncologist who claims to have successfully treated numerous cancer patients with sodium bicarbonate. . . .

Preventing Recurrence


Getting cancer is sort of like experiencing a head on collision with a truck. It may not kill you instantly but it will sure enough try to kill you. With cancer however, you face an additional threat.  As the old saying goes, “If the cancer doesn’t kill you, the treatment will.” Getting through cancer treatment is only the beginning of a lifelong endeavor to escape its clutches. If we embrace our unfortunate situation head on, with a smile on our face, and realize there are holistic things that we can do to prevent recurrence and heal from the side effects, then hope will arise. Are you ready to learn how to take control of your cancer in the post treatment period? Let’s get started.

To begin, what is the difference between a recurring cancer and a secondary one? A recurring cancer means that cells from the original tumor become active again, and this happens more often than not in the early months or years following treatment. A recurring cancer can occur in the local area of the original tumor or it may spread to some other area of the body. In comparison, a secondary cancer means a different species of cancer sprouts in an area local to the original tumor, or in an area removed from it.

What specifically should be done to prevent recurrence? In general, the answer is simple, and that is to maintain a healthy body ecology. The first part of this chapter will review the holistic practices we previously learned with an emphasis on how important they are for the rest of our lives to prevent recurrence. This requires a commitment to maintain good eating and lifestyle habits. In spite of this, it is not such an easy thing to do, because the mind can be easily tricked by the flesh into thinking something bad for the body is not so bad. This is where we all get into trouble. When we look in the mirror we need to have the conviction to call a strike when we see a strike, and a ball when we see a ball. If we don’t, our bad habit-dancing partner might waltz us right into the hospital or grave.

In addition to maintaining good diet and lifestyle habits, we need to understand the nature of any treatment-induced side effects we experience and develop a game plan to cure them. Why? Side effects weaken our body and make us more susceptible to recurrence.  However, they present a tricky variable in the healing algorithm. They are one of the most difficult areas to manage, to the extent traditional medicine does not address them except when they are very serious or life threatening. Consequently, the threat of a treatment-induced cancer is very real but few patients understand this threat. Ignoring side effects by simply learning to live with them, or because no one else seems concerned, is not a winning approach. The second part of this chapter addresses how to deal with treatment-provoked injuries, euphemistically referred to as side effects, to help prevent recurrence and secondary cancers. It also proposes various research-based holistic approaches to mitigate, and potentially heal, a number of the more common side effects.

Developing an informed treatment plan that addresses all of one’s side effects is not something that can be done detached from the counsel of an expert. For those who seek to do everything in their power to live, consultation with a health specialist in naturopathic or alternative cancer treatment is profitable. Consulting with a non-conventional doctor is also an opportunity to better understand the scope of alternative therapies that might be available should conventional treatment fail. The third part of this chapter speaks to the benefit of seeking consultation with a secondary tier of experts to assist in managing the side effects.

Again, if we choose to ignore the side effects and simply try to coexist with them, or we go back to harmful diet and lifestyle habits, or we go back to a stressful job or life situation, then for all intents and purposes, we will be contributing to a body ecology that invites cancer to come back. . . .
