Basal Cell Carcinoma Healed with Ginger and Hot Peppers (Enoch DeBus)

Enoch DeBus heals from basal cell carcinoma with “kick’um juice” made from ginger and hot peppers

It was in 2008 when Enoch DeBus first noticed that he had several suspicious lesions on his body.  He had one between his eyes, one on his cheek, and another on his arm.

He says that he managed to ignore them until 2009, at which time his chiropractor suggested that he be seen by his doctor because the growths appeared to her to be cancerous. Enoch agreed with her assessment and made an appointment to be evaluated.

By the time he was able to make the appointment, the wounds on his face were raw and had some bloody discharge.  Enoch was told that he had basal cell carcinoma and that he needed to have surgery right away. He asked the doctor if there was anything that he could do on his own, but he was told that “the damage was done,” and there was nothing that he could do at this point.  When he asked what would happen if he did not have the surgery, and the doctor replied that he would be blind in 6 months and dead within a year.

Enoch did not want to have surgery since this would involve cutting away until they managed to reach all of the cancer so he asked for one month to give himself time to find an alternative.  He then went home and prayed to God for wisdom and assistance. Enoch was a man of great faith and he says that the answer that came to him involved ingesting a mixture of ginger and hot peppers.

Enoch’s Kick’um Juice Recipe

The recipe that he eventually came up with:  fresh ginger root, sliced and simmered for 30 minutes in one quart of water, with a lid. He then cut up organic habanero, jalapeno and serrano peppers (along with the seeds) and added them to the ginger root and allowed that to simmer for an additional 10 minutes. He then cooled the mixture and blended it up along with several chunks of raw ginger root, some raw turmeric root, and some freshly ground black pepper. (He added raw ginger because it would have different healing properties than the cooked ginger, and the freshly ground black pepper as it would intensify the healing properties of the peppers). He stored the mixture in a mason jar in the refrigerator.

To take this mixture: Enoch did not filter this mixture but he did stir it up right before pouring himself a serving. He put 2 ounces into a water glass and then filled it to to the top with filtered water.  He then added a tsp of organic maple syrup, and fresh pomegranate juice for flavor. He drank this beverage three times per day. Enoch also combined this with a healthy diet and exercise program. He reports that this beverage gave him lots of energy and so he gave it the name of “kick’um Juice.”

Within weeks of starting this therapy his wounds had stopped bleeding and were starting to heal, and eventually he was free from the cancer. Enoch has made many more changes to his diet since then and he offers this information freely on his website.


The healing benefits of ginger, capsaicin and turmeric

Ginger– The University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center found that ginger can destroy ovarian cancer cells and benefit those suffering from colon cancer. Ginger also helps with dyspepsia or stomach ailments, can resolve vomiting and nausea because it controls the peristaltic movement of the muscles.  Ginger also works as an anti-inflammatory, helping with rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis or inflammation due to injury. In effect, the pain can be reduced significantly. Ginger is so concentrated with active substances, you don’t have to use very much to receive its beneficial effects.

Capsaicin -found in hot peppers disrupts a cancer cells major energy source, which is the mitochondria. The result was that the cancerous cells die, yet there was no harm to the surrounding healthy cells.  A recent study found that capsaicin leads to the death of prostate cancer cells yet leaves normal cells unharmed. When mice with prostate tumors were treated with capsaicin, the tumors shrunk by about one-fifth the size of untreated tumors. Link to the study

Turmeric- helps in the prevention of cancer, arthritis pain, Alzheimer’s disease and enhances liver function.   Specifically for cancer, it inhibits the transformation of cells from normal into tumor, inhibits the synthesis of a protein thought to be instrumental in tumor formation, and prevents the development of additional blood supply pathways to tumors.  Turmeric also helps your body destroy mutated cancer cells so they cannot spread throughout your body.   Combining turmeric with black pepper will increase the absorption and bio-availability of the nutrients.  Curcumin is the principal antioxidant extracted from turmeric,  much of curcumin’s power seems to lie in its ability to modulate genetic activity and expression—both by destroying cancer cells, and by promoting healthy cell function. It also promotes anti-angiogenesis, i.e. it helps prevent the development of additional blood supply necessary for cancer cell growth. Read about curcumin and cancer.
