“Cancer is not an accident. It’s not bad luck. It’s not your genetics….you caused it. Cancer is nothing more than a survival mechanism that occurs when you are depleting your body of what it needs. Your normal cells have to have oxygen in order to survive. If their not getting enough oxygen, then the body employs an adaptive mechanism that converts a normal cell into a cancerous cell. This buys the body time so you have a chance to change and save your life. You will never die from the cancer, you will die from what caused the cancer, and what made you sick in the first place.” Dr Charlie Majors
Dr Charlie Majors heals from stage 4 multiple myeloma with diet, supplements and alternative therapies
As a young man Dr. Charles Majors watched his grandmother die of cancer, and he says that this experience led him into the field of alternative healthcare. Since then he has devoted over 15 years of his life studying health and healing in order teach his patients about using natural therapies to prevent and reverse diseases. Dr Majors graduated from University of Illinois with a bachelors of science degree and went on to receive his doctorate degree from Palmer College of Chiropractic. He is the owner of several chiropractic clinics and has co-authored 2 books on the subject of health entitled Maximized Living Makeover and Cruise Ship or Nursing Home: The 5 Essentials of a Maximized Life.
In September of 2010, Charles was diagnosed with an incurable bone marrow cancer that had metastasized to his brain and throughout his body and he was given only weeks to live. He says that he refused to take the conventional medical recommendations that were being offered by his doctors in order to apply the same principles that he had been teaching to his patients and he was able to reverse the disease.
It all began about mid-year of 2010, when he began suffering from severe uncontrollable headaches, weight loss, and a heavy fatigue that would sometimes last for days. He says that he had been diagnosed and treated for Lyme’s disease previously but a blood test confirmed that this was not related to his current symptoms. An MRI was scheduled and the scans revealed that he had 4 tumors growing in his brain. He reports that his doctors assumed that the tumors were benign and a 12-hour surgery was scheduled for their removal. During the surgery he experienced severe bleeding and swelling and the doctors realized at that time that the tumors were indeed cancerous. It was later discovered his brain tumors had metastasized from a cancerous condition that had originated in his bone marrow that was now spreading throughout his body. He was diagnosed with stage 4 Multiple Myeloma and then taken to the hospitals intensive care unit. Doctors said there was nothing more they could do to stop the spread of the cancer and that he should get his affairs in order, although they did offer to treat him with high doses of chemotherapy and radiation, followed by a bone marrow transplant with the hopes that these treatments would give him some more time.
Dr Majors said that he was too ill to survive having any of these treatments. He had lost over 40 pounds during his stay in the hospital and he was so weak that he needed to use a wheel chair to leave, but he says that he clearly recognized that he had created this cancerous condition in his body and that the only way that he was going to heal it was by addressing the root cause of its development.
Dr Majors says that cancer is a survival mechanism that the body employs so that the cells are able to survive in a low-oxygen environment, therefore finding ways to oxygenate his blood was his first priority. He also concluded that his body was toxic so he needed to employ a variety of detoxification methods so that his body could begin to clear itself of all of the toxicity. The third step in his healing would be to address any nutritional deficiencies that he was suffering from.
He also said that it is important for people to develop a healing mind-set, and to spend some time educating themselves on their options in order to become an empowered patient. He researched his options and decided to consult with Dr James Forsythe, M.D., H.M.D., a respected integrative oncologist who practices out of Reno Nevada. Dr. Forsythe teaches cancer patients various strategies to overcome a cancer diagnosis, they include:
- Empowerment – enables the patient to make choices in their own treatment, recovery and future health maintenance.
- Good nutrition – stresses the importance of good nutrition as a core requirement of good health.
- Supplementation – this includes vitamins, minerals, other nutrients, herbs and enzymes to fight off disease and eliminate toxins.
- Balance – give patients the ability to achieve a balanced life style that includes exercise, rest, sleep and emotional harmony.
- Holistic health: treating the whole person, not just their illness or a single organ.
- Detoxification – is designed to improve the efficiency of the organs and body systems.
- Knowledge – will increase health awareness and early cancer detection through education and active prevention.
- Natural hormone therapies
Because Dr Majors was in such a dire situation it was essential that he get to work on formulating a healing plan immediately. His first goal was to stop his body from producing more cancerous cells. He says that cancer is a direct result of your lifestyle, so examining every aspect of how you are living your life is very important. He then spent 3 weeks at the Century Wellness Clinic in Reno where he received high dose IV Vitamin C, IV hydrogen peroxide therapy, and IV Poly MVA to begin to clear his body of cancerous cells.
Dr Majors also made some serious dietary changes and examined all of his emotional baggage in order to kill off those cancer cells. Upon being discharged, he continued some of the above therapies and then added more which included high-dose enzyme therapy, and supplementation to meet his nutritional needs. He also incorporated detoxification protocols such as UV blood cleansing, ozone therapy, along with the use of Infrared Sauna Therapy, and then he started an exercise routine to increase his oxygen levels. All of these therapies were done specifically to build up and detoxify his system. He later traveled to the Spain for 2 weeks to learn more about cleansing and detoxification methods and also began to incorporate the Budwig Protocol into his healing arsenal.
Dr Majors says there are five areas to look at when healing from cancer
- Mindset- cancer has a specific mindset, whether they are repressed feelings, or not caring for self
- Nervous system- chiropractic care to ensure that nerve system is functioning optimally
- Nutrition: The pH must be balanced- not too high, not too low. That would be 6.2 for urine and 7.2 for saliva, you can read more about pH and how to test it with this post. Cancer feeds on sugar, you can read more about sugar and cancer with this post. Bad fats are the number one reason for cancer, you can read more about fats here.
- Oxygenation- doing specific exercises to oxygenate the body
- Toxicity- if you cant eat it or drink it, then you shouldn’t be putting it on your body
Dr Majors is also the co-author of the book, The Cancer Killers, the Cause is the Cure as a way to help others navigate their way through a cancer diagnosis.
Notes from CCAR: Lymphoma, leukemia, and myelomas are cancers of the immune system. They are often the result of having a damaged immune system, possibly from having a chronic infection such as viral, bacterial, parasitic, or fungal (candida), or from heavy metal toxicity (this can be from having mercury amalgam fillings or from other sources), or it can be due to chronic exposure to pesticides/ herbicides, having a gluten sensitivity or some other type of food intolerance, or from having an unaddressed dental issue (more commonly an infected root canal, or another type of dental or other bodily infection). The healing modalities that you choose must involve addressing the issue that overstimulated your immune system and then deal with any pathogenic issues that you may have. You can read more about specific diet and supplement recommendations with this post.
Update: I am sad to report that Dr Majors passed away in January 2017. This is the statement that was released by his family. In September 2010, Charles was diagnosed with multiple myeloma which had spread to his brain in the form of four large tumors. A very rare cancer, multiple myeloma occurs in less than 1% of the adult population. Attempted surgery to remove the brain tumors was unsuccessful, and Charles was left with very few options for survival for this condition, considered to be incurable. Having been given weeks to live, Charles sought the care of integrative oncologists, and embarked on a healing journey using all holistic, non-medical interventions. Through this care, Charles’ health improved dramatically. Four years after his diagnosis, shocking his conventional physicians, an updated MRI revealed no tumors in Charles’ brain. He was proclaimed to be cancer-free at the five-year anniversary of his diagnosis.
During these years, Charles used his own experience to help and inspire thousands of individuals looking to prevent and beat their own cancers. It brought Charles incredible joy to not only be cancer-free himself, but to see others receive the same proclamations from their own doctors as a result of his inspiration.
Having been strong and having beaten all the odds for six years, Charles experienced new symptoms in the final few months of his life. Charles had a rare subset of multiple myeloma, occurring in 1% of multiple myeloma patients — very unexpectedly, the disease manifested aggressively in Charles’ final weeks. Though he received tremendous care from both his holistic physicians and conventional oncologists, Charles’ body was unable to keep up the fight; and he passed away at the age of 46.
Charles beat all of his doctors’ expectations for six years, surviving longer than anyone would have ever expected. He dedicated his life to helping everyone in his path. The family continues to seek better understanding of what allowed for such a spontaneous recurrence of Charles’ very rare disorder. Please continue to pray for Charles’ wife, Andrea, and four children, Caleb, Austin, Reese and Hayden. In less than one week since his passing, the sheer numbers of friends, patients and colleagues who have accredited their achievements in health and in personal success to the inspiration of Charles Majors has been immeasurable.
