Ralph Cole heals from squamous cell carcinoma that had metastasized to his lymph nodes with carrot juice and diet changes
It was in 2005 when Ralph Cole found 2 large lumps on his neck. A biopsy was performed and the diagnosis was squamous cell carcinoma that had metastasized to his lymph nodes. His doctors recommended that he have surgery, to be followed by radiation and chemotherapy as his treatment plan.
Before starting those treatments, Ralph was told by an acquaintance that he should start drinking several glasses of fresh carrot juice every day. This woman had cured herself of ovarian cancer several years earlier by following the Gerson Protocol which advocates the drinking of 13 cups of fresh juices that are taken along with strict diet changes, supplements, and some detoxing therapies.
This peaked Ralph’s interest so he made the decision to eliminate all refined sugar from his diet, which he admits that he had been eating a lot of. He then bought himself a juicer and began to juice three pounds of carrots daily. This yielded him about 3 cups of fresh juice, (or about 1 cup of juice per pound of carrots). Ralph says that his strategy was to drink all of the juice right away, but you can store it in mason jars in the refrigerator to keep it fresh so that it will last you throughout the day. He drank this juice every day for the next four months up until the time of his surgery.
At a preliminary appointment before his surgery, he was told by the radiologist that his latest MRI revealed that his tumors had not grown since his first MRI that had been taken four months earlier. He also said that the tumors “may have even gotten smaller.” But despite this revelation, the doctor insisted that the likelihood of surviving this cancer was about three times better for those who received treatment than for those who did not.
Because Ralph was about to lose his eligibility for medical assistance, he asked if he could skip the surgery and get right to the chemotherapy and radiation. In order to do this, his doctor had to go before the hospital’s medical board on Ralph’s behalf to get them to agree to go immediately to the other treatments.
Ralph then received 2 months of chemotherapy along with daily radiation treatments which he said seriously affected his ability to salivate and swallow. He says that he lost 50 pounds over the next few months, but he still managed to drink the 3 cups of carrots juice while receiving these treatments. He reports that the tumors gradually shrank and then disappeared altogether shortly after receiving the treatments.
A few months later, Ralph reports that several lumps began appearing on his chest, until he had a total of ten. Rather alarmed, he began searching for other ways to heal his body, these included making further changes to his diet and taking supplements, but he says that these therapies did not seem to be working for him. He then asked a nurse who attended his church to look at the lumps and she advised him to to back to the hospital ASAP for a biopsy before the cancer metastasized any further. Instead of following that advice, Ralph decided to increase his daily juicing amount from three pounds of carrots to five pounds, which yielded him about five cups of fresh juice.
He reports that the lumps on his chest began to shrink almost immediately, and 9 of the 10 lumps completely disappeared over the next 6 weeks, with the largest one finally disappearing by the end of the 8th week. He reports that he juiced for another month or so after that and then stopped. Ralph has been cancer-free ever since that time and now says that he only juices on occasion. NOTE FROM CCAR: Please don’t go back to your old dietary habits. Your lifestyle and dietary changes should continue on so that the cancer does not return.
The healing qualities of carrot juice
Carrot juice contains 20 different vitamins as well as 11 minerals. Perhaps one of the most in Carrot juice contains 20 different vitamins such as vitamin A in the form of carotene, along with vitamins C, D, E, K, B1 and B6, and minerals including biotin, potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, organic sodium, plus lots of trace minerals. Carrots are also rich in phytonutrients, including lutein, lycopene, antioxidants, alpha, beta, and gamma carotenes, zeaxanthin, and xanthophylls. Perhaps one of the most interesting compounds found within carrot juice is falcarinol, which is believed by scientists to help hinder the development of cancer cells as well as stop fungal diseases from spreading. Many argue that carrots are too high in sugar to juice, but the catch is that they are loaded with many cancer fighting properties and the natural sugars take these properties directly to the cancerous cells.
