Kidney Cancer, Metastasized to the Adrenal Gland and Lung, Healed with an Herbal Protocol (Jim Gordon)

“When I first started doing all of this, I didn’t know anything about herbs. I thought they were only something to be put on your food… Now I know better.” J. Gordon

Jim Gordon ( J. Gordon) heals from kidney cancer that had metastasized to his adrenal gland and lung with herbs

Jim Gordon was diagnosed with stage 4 throat cancer back in 2009 that was treated with radiation and chemotherapy.  Doctors pronounced him to be cancer free following those treatments, but just three years later a CT scan revealed that he had a peach-sized tumor growing on his kidney.

Jim had surgery to remove the tumor, but a follow up scan revealed that they hadn’t removed it all and that it had spread to one of his adrenal glands and to a small spot on his lung.  Doctors then wanted to remove the entire kidney and follow that with chemotherapy, but Jim said that he needed some time to think this over.

Jim went home and says that he Googled everything he could find about natural cures for cancer and came across information about using herbal remedies.  He says that using something natural like herbs appealed to him the most out of all of the information that he had researched.   He read the book The Healing Power of Rainforest Herbs: A Guide to Understanding and Using Herbal Medicinals, by Leslie Taylor, ND and says that he found the information amazing.

After reading the book, Jim decided to take the herbs that were listed as being beneficial to those who had been diagnosed with cancer.  He  started with Graviola, Cats Claw, Pau d’arco, Bitter Melon, and Turmeric and then added more herbs until he was taking a total of 7.  He says he didn’t know if taking that many herbs would harm him, but he went ahead anyways as he thought that he had nothing to lose.   He later read that the native healers of the Amazon claimed to have used up to 7 herbs to treat sick people so he felt that he was on the right track.

Jim says that it is important to start with only one herb to see if he had a reaction to it, so he took that single herb for a few days.  He then switched to another herb and took that for a few days and he continued to check for any reactions to all of the individual herbs.   Following that, he started combining the herbs until he was using all seven that he had chosen for his protocol.

Jim later worked his way up to taking 2 capsules of each of the herbs per day, (1 of each herb was taken with a large breakfast, and 1 of each herb was taken with his dinner), always checking to see how well he was tolerating them. And finally, Jim worked himself up to taking four capsules of each of the herbs per day (two capsules of each herb were taken with a large breakfast, two capsules of each herb were taken with his dinner), making it a total of 28 capsules per day.  He says that it took him several weeks to build up to taking all 28 capsules.  He says that herbs can be hard on the stomach so they should always be taken at mealtimes.

This is a list of the herbs that Jim used to heal from thecancer:  Graviola, Cats Claw, Pau d’arco,  Suma Root, Bitter Melon, Anamu, and Curcumin

Raising his pH

Jim says it is important to raise your pH up to 7 (or neutral).  In order to do this, Jim started drinking water with fresh squeezed lemon juice (which is also cleansing for the body), as well as mixing a small amount of sodium bicarbonate into his drinking water.  This was 1 cup of water + 1/2 tsp of  baking soda. This should be taken away from meal times as it will impede digestion of food. Bedtime and early morning is a good time to do this, but limit yourself to only 1 tsp of sodium bicarbonate per day.  Another way to raise the pH that does not require ingesting sodium bicarbonate is to add 2 tbsp of fresh lemon juice into 4 ounces of water and drink this 3 times per day.  You can read more about pH and how to test it with this link.

His results-  After taking the herbs, drinking alkaline water, and eliminating sugar from his diet, Jim’s 6 months CT scans came back clear. He says that this was one of happiest days of his life.  When the cancer was completely gone he reduced his dosage to one capsule of each herb taken 2 times per day (1 capsule of each herb is taken at breakfast and another at dinner, for a total of 14 capsules per day).  He adds.  “I can’t say that my cocktail of herbs is the best one to use, all I know is it worked for me.  It’s important to have your doctor monitor your blood or do CT scans to see if the cancer is spreading or not.”

In regards to Suma root – After Jim was healed from the cancer he began to share his protocol with his followers on Facebook.  He later decided to eliminate the suma root and began taking Wormwood (Artemisinin) instead, along with one capsule of a Gentle Iron Supplement.  There are two reasons that he gives for this.  First, because cancer cells sequester iron it can be used to their detriment (as is detailed in this article), and secondly, because he says that estrogen positive breast cancers can be made worse in those who take Suma Root (if so, this may also apply to estrogen fueled prostate cancers as well).  I am leaving his original protocol intact though since that is what he used to cure the cancer.

Eliminate sugar– One should eliminate all refined sugars from their diet because cancer cells use it to fuel their growth and spread.  Read more about sugar and cancer.
