The following is a collection of various lesser-known therapies for cancer. You can find other therapies using this link
Carnivora (Venus Fly Trap extract)-Carnivora supplies essential nutrients to the immune system allowing it to operate at high efficiency. In addition, it mimics the activities of the immune system itself in destroying defective or so-called primitive cells from a wide variety of pathogens (viruses and bacteria). Many laboratory studies worldwide have demonstrated its effectiveness against cancer and aids. Since 1981, over 2000 patients have been treated with Carnivora, including President Ronald Reagan.

Cesium Chloride-When it comes to treating advanced cancers, such as Stage IV cancers, fast growing cancers, cancers that have spread significantly, high fatality cancers, cancers which have spread to the bones, etc., the cesium chloride protocol is one of the most proven cancer treatments in existence. This treatment can be used on newly diagnosed cancer patients or cancer patients being fed by feeding tubes or cancer patients being fed by I.V. The one downside to this treatment is the potential for swelling and inflammation caused by the immune system attacking cancer cells which are in the process of dying. The good news is that experts in this protocol know how to adjust doses and add other products to keep the swelling and inflammation at safe levels. Read more on the help available at the cancer tutor link below. Cesium works by:
- 1) Making the cancer cells alkaline (Note: the BLOOD is NOT made alkaline, only the inside of the cancer cells), 2) Limits the intake of glucose into the cell (thus starving the cell and making the cell “sick” from lack of food), 3) Neutralizes the lactic acid (which is actually what causes the cell to multiply uncontrollably), and 4) Stops the fermentation process, which is a second affect of limiting the glucose.

Dendritic Cell Vaccines- use the body’s natural defense system to combat cancer. If T lymphocytes are the fighting generals of the immune system, dendritic cells act as the reconnaissance scouts. DCs like to take up station at sites of anatomical barriers, i.e. where the “inside” meets the “outside”, (the skin, mucous membranes, alimentary canal). Here they wait for two things, signs of infection and/or inflammatory tissue damage. The surface of DCs are studded with specialized receptors, which act as sensors for infection or inflammation. When they contact such signals, a specialized maturation/activation/migration program is initiated. DCs collect a “snapshot” of the proteins present in the environment of the activation signals (such as protiens from an infectious agent), gain acces to draining lymphatic vessels, and travel to the lymph nodes. The lymph nodes are populated by many T lymphocytes. The DCs seek out T cells and “present” the proteins acquired at the peripheral sites. The T cells then become activated by the DCs and then go out on a “search and destroy” mission to eliminate anything that resembles the proteins presented by the DC (such as a bacterium infecting the body). My friend Shelley used the dendritic cell vaccine-she now assists patients to get into clinical trials. Here is her website for more information http://www.shelleydodt.com/Shelley_Dodt/Welcome.html
Hoxsey’s Tonic– is an herbal concoction composed of poke root, burdock root, barberry root, buckthorn bark, and stillinga root. It is administered in two forms. One is taken orally and the other is a salve (containing blood root) which, if the tumor is on or close to the surface of the skin, is applied topically. The formula was first used in 1924 by Harry M. Hoxsey, a controversial and colorful figure who said he obtained it from his grandfather. The elder Hoxsey was a farmer who observed one of his horses apparently cure itself of cancer by instinctively eating certain plants. Many plants which animals seek when they are ill contain nitrilosides aka (Laetrile). For over thirty years, Harry Hoxsey (1901-1974), a self-taught healer, cured many cancer patients using an herbal remedy reportedly handed down by his great-grandfather. By the 1950s, the Hoxsey Cancer Clinic in Dallas was the world’s largest private cancer center, with branches in seventeen states. Born in Illinois, this practitioner of herbal folk medicine faced unrelenting opposition and harassment from a hostile medical establishment. Nevertheless, two federal courts upheld the therapeutic value of Hoxsey’s internal tonic. Even his archenemies, the American Medical Association and the Food and Drug Administration, admitted that his treatment could cure some forms of cancer. A Dallas judge ruled in federal court that Hoxsey’s therapy was “comparable to surgery, radium, and x-ray” in its effectiveness, without the destructive side effects of those treatments. But in the 1950s, at the tail end of the McCarthy era, Hoxsey’s clinics were shut down. The AMA, NCI, and FDA organized to suppress Hoxsey’s methods according to a 1953 federal report to Congress and Hoxsey’s Dallas clinic had to close its doors in 1960. Three years later, at Hoxsey’s request, Mildred Nelson, R.N., his long-time chief nurse, moved the operation to the Hoxsey Biomedical Clinic that is located in Tijuana, Mexico.
Hydrogen Peroxide– is a form of ozone treatment. Administered intravenously, this therapy supplies an abundance of oxygen to the cancer site. Since cancer thrives in a fermentive state and does not do well in the presence of oxygen, the effect is to inhibit or destroy the cancer. As with hydrazine sulphate, this is not a mechanism found in nature, but many patients claim to have had their cancers go into remission with this treatment.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy– is generally used for strokes and brain damage in order to increase oxygen levels in the body some clinics also use this therapy for treating cancer. Research has shown that HBO therapy may help reduce cancer growth result in an increase in the body’s own stem cells, which are blood cells at the earliest stage of development in the bone marrow – because HBO therapy can increase stem cells it may have a role in stem cell transplantation, which is a treatment sometimes used in haematological cancers.
Hyperthermia– (also known as heat therapy) is a process that raises the temperature of the body. Tumors and cells located near the surface of the body are more vulnerable to heat treatments than those protected deep inside. Although the prolonged high temperatures can be uncomfortable to the patient, this treatment has produced excellent results and unlike chemotherapy and radiation, there are no side effects. Heat only affects the cancer cells while healthy cells can survive increased heat environments without having lasting damage. German doctors who practice alternative methods have used this therapy with impressive results. A typical treatment lasts about 6 hours. During the first 2 hours patient’s body temperature is gradually raised to about 105 degrees Fahrenheit. This temperature is maintained for 2 hours, and then over the next 2 hours the doctors gradually bring the patient’s body temperature back down to normal. A doctor will monitor the patient’s vital signs during this whole process and makes sure that the patient’s hydration is replenished and maintained.
There are 3 types of Hyperthermia (heat) treatments for Cancer patients:
1. Local deep hyperthermia with radio waves
2. Whole body moderate hyperthermia
3. Infrared hyperthermia
1. The inside of a tumor cell becomes over-acidified
2. The cell looses energy (ATP) or energy.
3. The outside of the cell (cell membrane) and the genetic material (DNA) inside the cell gets damaged
4. The cancer cell begins to develop heat shock proteins, which alert the immune system to their presence.
After the cancer cells are at their weakest and most vulnerable state, you can choose another high end treatment to specifically target the cancer cells to kill them. Even chemotherapy at this point will work much better and more specifically because the cancer cells are so weak.
Infrared sauna therapy- uses heat to kill cancer cells. Intense sweating can help to rid the body of about one-third of the toxic material that your kidneys would normally have to filter from your bloodstream. Multiple studies have shown that the use of a Infrared Sauna System can be effective in removing solvents, organic chemicals, PCBs, pharmaceuticals, and heavy metal toxins from the body. The high temperatures of saunas can also give your immune system a boost by increasing the number of white blood cells that fight infections by as much as 58%. Your T cells (which are the cancer killer cells) and antibodies can increase by as much as 2,000%. Additionally, many microbes can not survive in a heated environment so many of them die off with exposure to the heat.
It also can increase the effectiveness of chemotherapy and reduces the side effects of toxic conventional treatments. In this approach heat from the Far Infrared energy artificially raises the temperature of the whole body or to specific body parts. Far infrared heat energy penetrates deeply—four to five centimeters into the skin, the body’s largest detoxifying organ. Its molecular vibrations “jiggle” the tissues and speed up metabolic exchanges between cells. At the same time, it boosts the body’s regenerative abilities and decreases pain by increasing circulation. Vancouver naturopathic physician Jim Chan, who has treated about 5,000 cancer patients, explains that far infrared therapy has the ability to “break up the protective rings around harmful molecules” in the body so they’re no longer cancer causing. It also weakens the bonds between toxins and human tissues; so stored toxins can be flushed out of the system faster and in greater quantities through the skin via sweating, the liver and the bowels. You can find Infrared Sauna Systems on Amazon or from other online vendors.
IP6- is a unique nutritional supplement containing the B complex vitamin inositol phosphate which is further bonded with inositol. IP6 with inositol is found naturally within every body cell, and according to AbulKalam M. Shamsuddin, MD, PhD., in his book ” IP6 Nature’s Revolutionary Cancer-fighter”, the health effects of this combination are greater than that of each form alone. IP6 is also an effective antioxidant. It acts to neutralize the damaging effects of free radicals on body cells and has been shown to enhance immunity by boosting the activity of natural killer (NK) cells. Immune system cells (also called lymphocytes) are the body’s first line of defense against a variety of diseases, viruses and other infecting organisms. IP6 has undergone extensive animal testing and human studies. No side effects have been found, either when IP6 is used on its own, or in combination with chemotherapeutic agents. Indeed, Dr. Shamsuddin states that IP-6 and Inositol can actually potentiate these treatments. According to the University of Maryland School of Medicine, IP6 holds great promise in the prevention and treatment of cancer. It enhances the anticancer effect of conventional chemotherapy, controls cancer metastases, and improves quality of life. There are no known drug-nutrient interactions. Dr. Shamsuddin states that he has proven by traditional scientific procedures that IP-6 prevents cancer and is highly effective as a therapy against all forms of human cancer. Find IP-6 Supplements
Localized hyperthermia- Hyperthermia as a way of killing cancer cells was developed several decades ago after scientists noted that sometimes, when cancer patients developed a fever, their cancer went into remission. The use of localized hyperthermia is called Ablation or Ablatherm. Doctors at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden are pioneering a new treatment for breast cancer which kills breast cancer cells by heating them up. The procedure uses a targeted electrical current to heat tumours to 70-90c, under local anesthetic. The treatment can take as little as 10 minutes. Although there has been huge resistance to HIFU in the traditional UK cancer establishment, a recent report about the work of Professor Mark Emberton in London should now convince patients of its effectiveness in treating solid, localised tumours with minimal fuss, and minimal side-effects.
- Research studies on hyperthermia- The new treatment for breast cancer has been used successfully by doctors on over 80 patients.Three separate studies have now shown the therapy to be safe and effective. All patients having the treatment have been monitored for two years to date and none has had a recurrence. The treatment is known as Preferential Radio-Frequency Ablation. Dr Karin Leifland, the radiologist overseeing the research, says the technology could become an alternative to surgery for women with early stage breast cancer.According to Leifland, ‘It is like boiling an egg. The tumour is heated to such an extent that the cancer cells are killed off, while leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed. The treatment is suitable mainly for women with tumours which are smaller than 2 cm and are contained in a single lump. There is no pain or scar afterwards and within minutes of the treatment, women can leave the hospital and go home or back to work. It is also much cheaper than surgically removing a lump. Ablatherm is also used around the world for cancers in the kidneys, bone and liver, where they are solid and non-metastasised. Link to article
Magnetic Resonance or Bio-resonance: A newer technique based on an older technology. All cells have a natural frequency of resonance and cancer cells differ in frequency from normal cells. Radio waves set to resonate with cancer cell frequencies can destroy them similar to the way a high pitched note breaks a glass. It has never been adopted by the conventional medical establishment in the United States, but Bio-resonance devices have been in use in Europe for 23 years.
Modified Citrus Pectin- Dozens of published studies demonstrate the effectiveness of this little-known naturally occurring compound taken from the pulp of citrus fruits – especially grapefruit. Note that this is not the same pectin commonly available for use in cooking. MCP is thought to be useful in the prevention and treatment of metastatic (spreading) cancer, not as a curative therapy that destroys established cells/tumors. A key mechanism of it’s action is to suppresses angiogenesis, the blood vessels that each cancer cell grows to obtain a steady input of blood (Note: see cancer cell photograph at the beginning of this document.) Without nourishment, cells stop metastasizing and die. MCP molecules bind to receptors on cancerous cells as well, thereby preventing these cells from penetrating into nearby healthy tissue. Once this has occurred, the cancer cells circulate in the blood stream until they die or are eliminated. By working to inhibit the spread of cancer, MCP keeps the body’s immune system from becoming overwhelmed by an increasing cancer cell load. Read more about this therapy
Oxygen therapy- is frequently called a cancer cell’s worst enemy, and a variety ways and means to increase the body’s oxygen content have been developed over the decades worldwide. Many degenerative diseases of our time respond to oxygen therapy. The methods of delivering ozone/oxygen/peroxide into the body are too numerous to describe here. All use purified medical grade oxygen compounds of course. Examples are injection of oxygen bearing compounds, ear insufflation, rectal insufflation, autohematherapy, bagging/tenting, steam sauna, drinking ozonated water etc. Some eight thousand (8000) MDs and licensed health practitioners (including homeopathic physicians and naturopaths) in Germany use ozone in their practices, while some fifteen thousand European practitioners use ozone, either alone or as a complement to other therapies. Russian doctors have been utilizing ozone for the last 15 years. It is estimated that over 10 million ozone treatments have been given to over one million patients in Germany alone over the last forty years. The medical uses of ozone are well established in many of these countries. There are other approaches like Peroxide therapy, EWOT (Exercise With Oxygen therapy) and Hyperbaric Oxygen therapy. Despite all of this, the FDA still does not approve oxygen cancer therapy in the United States.
Ozone Therapy– has been widely used in Europe for many years. Ozone (O3) is a highly active form of oxygen. Because it has powerful antiviral properties, it is also used in treating AIDS. In the body, ozone gives off O which kills viruses and bacteria. It also creates an oxygen-rich environment that may force cancer cells to shift from an anaerobic metabolism to an aerobic, or oxygen-based, metabolism. Ozone also produces molecular oxygen (O2), in the same way that hydrogen peroxide does.
Photodynamic therapy– also called photochemotherapy, phototherapy, or photoradiation therapy, is based on the discovery that cells or organisms treated with a photosensitizing agent can then be destroyed by means of light. PDT involves the use of a photosensitizing drug, which is either applied to the skin or injected intravenously. After a two or three days, when the drug has been absorbed throughout the body, though more selectively in cancer cells, a low-level, fixed-frequency laser light is focused on the tumor, causing the drug to react with oxygen. This forms free radicals or other substances which kill the cancer cells, or destroys the blood vessels that feed the cancer cells. PDT may also trigger the immune system to attack the cancer cells. The actual laser treatment can take between 5 to 40 minutes, depending on the area being treated.Since PDT is only useful for treating tumors or pre-cancerous tissues where laser light can reach, it is not always practical. This usually restricts PDT to areas on or lying no more that half an inch beneath the skin, or in the accessible lining of internal organs, especially the larynx, oesophagus, lungs, stomach, colon, rectum, and bladder. Treatment of prostate, ovarian and pancreatic cancers are still in an experimental stage. Large tumors are more difficult to treat with PDT because the light does not penetrate deeply enough. In cases where PDT can be used, studies have shown it to be as effective as surgery or radiation therapy. The advantages are that the patient does not have to undergo surgery; the cancer can be very precisely targeted; the treatment can be repeated on the same site (unlike radiation); and the patient can generally be treated as an outpatient. The major drawback with some PDT drugs is that because they spread throughout the body, the skin and eyes become very sensitive to bright light for up to six weeks, even up to 90 days, requiring special precautions. PDT can also cause burns, swellings or pain in nearby tissue. Depending on the area treated, PDT can also result in coughing, swallowing difficulty, stomach pain, painful breathing, and shortness of breath. A small number of photosensitizing agents are used, notably Photofrin and Levulan Kerastick. Other more advanced agents include Photoflora, a chlorophyll extract which is taken orally, accumulates selectively in tumours, does not persist in the skin, and lasts only 24 to 48 hours in the body, resulting in minimal post-therapy photosensitivity. Systemic Light Therapy, a variant of PDT, uses the experimental Russian photosensitizing agent and chlorophyll derivative, Radachlorin. This too persists in the body for a few days only.
PolyMVA: (Poly for polynucleotide reductase and MVA = mineral, vitamins and amino acids) is a nontoxic antioxidant liquid formula composed of alpha lipoic acid and the element palladium. Poly-MVA is a compound that contains various minerals, vitamins, and amino acids such as lipoic acid, palladium, B 12, and other B complex vitamins. It is promoted as a nutritional supplement that is a nontoxic alternative to chemotherapy. Because it is said to be able to cross the blood brain barrier, this product is usually used with brain tumors, but it is said to be effective against tumors in the brain, lung, ovaries, and breast, and that it boosts the immune system, reduces pain, and helps people regain energy and appetite. It is considered a powerful antioxidant that can turn the toxins released by cancer into energy. According to its manufacturers, the compound attacks cancerous cells and protects DNA and RNA. They contend that the lipoic acid allows the various minerals, vitamins, and amino acids to be easily absorbed into the system where they can kill cancerous cells. You can find Poly-MVA Dietary Supplement online. Informational link on PolyMVA which also has a link to a complete poly MVA protocol.
Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation (UVBI) –UVBI is an inexpensive treatment involving a simple three-step process. A small amount of the patient’s blood is first withdrawn. Then it is exposed to a stream of ultraviolet light (UV). Finally, the blood is slowly returned to the bloodstream. The irradiated blood circulates throughout the body destroying bacteria, inactivating toxins and viruses, and enhancing the immune system. The reason for this phenomena is not clearly understood. UVBI can be used as part of a treatment plan for colds/influenza, acute and chronic sinusitis and bronchitis, cancer, emphysema, HIV, chemical sensitivity, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, autoimmune diseases, tendonitis, and even heart disease. Another application of this blood withdrawing/returning procedure is called
Autohemotherapy used successfully, mostly throughout Europe, for over 50 years. Blood is withdrawn from the arm, infused with Ozone, and then returned to the body. Autohemotherapy may help regulate the immune system and decrease inflammation. It too is effective against a variety of conditions.
Virginia Livingston therapy- Developed by Virginia Livingston-Wheeler, a U.S. medical doctor, this complex vaccine and nutrition-based cancer therapy assumes that cancer is caused by Progenitor cryptocides, a bacterium said to become active only when the body’s immune system is weakened or stressed. Livingston-Wheeler discovered Progenitor cryptocides during the 1940s. In the following decade, she developed her theory that cancer is caused by this bacterium and then developed a vaccine against it. In 1969, she founded the Livingston Foundation Medical Center in San Diego. In the years since then Ms Livingston passed away, and her clinic closed, but a co-worker, Dr McClelland, continues to carrying on her work. He believed so strongly in this therapy that he opened his own clinic in San Diego in 2004 and has continued to treat a number of cancer patients from the original clinic. Dr. McClelland claims he has good success with this protocol with prostate cancer, early breast cancer and melanoma. The Livingston-Wheeler protocol consists of vaccines such as the BCG vaccine and an autogenous vaccine made from your urine along with other supplements. Other components of the Livingston protocol include a vitamin A analog called cis-14, which breaks down into abscicic acid, a most potent anti-cancer weapon according to Dr. Livingston; a spleen extract, pancreatic enzymes, high dose vitamin C, an E+ peptide plus amino acids, and possibly B-12 injections. He recommends a modified Gerson diet including the coffee enemas. For more information on the Livingston-Wheeler protocol and background read The conquest of Cancer: Vaccines and Diet by Dr. Virginia Livingston-Wheeler. Contact Dr. McClelland Clinic (619) 233-8018.
