Pancreatic Cancer Healed with a Raw Vegan Diet, Detoxing, and Laetrile (Felicity Corbin-Wheeler)

“Cancer is a nutritional deficiency disease, like scurvy from a lack of vitamin C or pellagra from a lack of niacin. It is not caused by a bacterium, virus or a mysterious toxin, but by the deficiency of a substance that we have removed from our diet. That substance is vitamin B17 which is derived from the seeds, and living enzymes found in fresh raw vegetables, fruit and the plants that God tells us to eat in Genesis. When we add the toxicity of 21st century lifestyle to this deficiency we are living in a perfect storm. No wonder one in two of us now develops cancer.”  Rev Dr. Felicity Corbin-Wheeler

Felicity says, “Our family, like most British families, believed in eating a “balanced diet” that was comprised of mainly cooked food, animal proteins, salt, sugar, and refined grains. We ate eggs and bacon for breakfast, we drank packaged orange juice, had caffeine-rich coffee and teas, and chocolates. We drank very little alcohol in our family, but we did drink rich Jersey milk, ate roasts, and sweet deserts that were made with cream and sugar. I had tried out the delicious new foods that were offered over the last thirty years in supermarkets. I read the labels of contents and was not concerned. I bought a microwave to make cooking quicker, little did I realize that this kills all of the living enzymes in the food. I thought we had a healthy diet, but I had a lot to learn.”

Felicity’s experience with cancer began when her daughter Melanie was diagnosed in 1987 with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma stage 4B,  and died at the age of 20.   Melanie had just started school at London University when she was diagnosed and she died 16 months later despite all that orthodox medicine had to offer, which included chemotherapy, radiation, and a bone marrow transplant. Felicity says that the loss of her daughter led her to believe that there had to be a better way to treat cancer.  She decided to study nutrition and enrolled herself in two courses where she learned that the simple nutrition of fruits, vegetables, and seeds as stated in Genesis 1:29 is the diet that we all should be eating.  The Lord God says, “ I give you every seed bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it, they will be yours for food.”    This research eventually led her to adopt a vegetarian diet and she also gave up drinking alcohol. 

Felicity says she was feeling good up until September 7th 2003, at which time she began experiencing a horrible pain in her solar plexus area which she describes as “a killer blow.” The next day she appeared to be jaundiced and was in terrific pain from one side of her body to the other that seemed to be centered in the midriff area.  She went to her doctor who examined her and said, ‘I think we have a major problem here.’ The following day she was given scans and a very large tumor was discovered at the head of her pancreas. She was sent to King Edward VII Hospital in London for more tests, and at the end of all the examinations doctors told her that there was absolutely no hope and that she had somewhere between five weeks to six months at the most.    She says that she was in gut-wrenching pain at the time that was being partially controlled by morphine. She was also suffering from nausea and jaundice and had lost a quarter of her body weight in just two weeks.  She was given a stent that was fitted to relieve the jaundice and this allowed her liver to begin functioning again, but she reports that she was so ill by then that she could only keep down water and a little freshly made juice.

The first thing that Felicity did was to say the Gethsemane prayer, in which Jesus says to God that His will will be done. She says  “whether I was going to live or die I knew that I was in God’s hands.” In Malachi 4:2 it says “For those that revere My name, the Son of Righteousness will appear with healing in His wings.”   Felicity says that she was entirely at rest, and that people couldn’t understand why she was able to remain so calm and positive, but it was because she felt all along that God had His hand on this problem, so she completely surrendered herself over to Him.

A fellow pastor at her church recommended that she explore laetrile (aka B17) and gave Felicity a website so that she could read more about the compound.   Felicity then read 2 books about B17 titled, World Without Cancer; The Story of Vitamin B17, by G. Edward Griffin, and Cancer Why We’re Still Dying To Know The Truth, by Phillip Day.

Felicity was able to obtain ampules of laetrile from a hospital in Mexico but she needed to locate a knowledgeable doctor in her area who was wiling to administer the compound.   Her own doctor was not familiar with laetrile but he did pull out his medical journal to show her that it stated that laetrile contained a powerful cyanide which was poisonous.   Felicity had already read all about the compounds and knew that they were only released upon contact with cancerous cells and they are completely harmless to ordinary cells, but her doctor was adamant and afraid of litigation. She met with a second doctor and was told that B17 would not work for her cancer. Then a friend introduced her to a young doctor who worked for Hospice.  This woman understood how laetrile worked and agreed to give it to her intravenously every other day for a total of 13 injections.

Additional therapies that Felicity used:

  • She began eating Bitter Apricot Kernels which are a good source of laetrile.
  • She began eating a raw vegan diet that consisted of lots of fresh vegetables and salads along with a variety of nuts and seeds
  • She drank lots of fresh juices made from vegetables and wheatgrass.
  • She supplemented with Barley Grass Powder
  • She took high doses of Pancreatic Enzymes (which have the ability to dissolve the fibrin protein that surrounds tumors).
  • She began to detoxify her body by having 5 coffee enemas every day as is recommended by the Gerson Institute.

Felicity says that within two months the pain had reduced significantly and eight months later the scans showed that the tumor was reduced to scar tissue.   She says that, “The medical establishment called my healing a “Medical Miracle,” or excused it as a misdiagnosis. However, my cancer had been confirmed by three consultants, there was no misdiagnosis.”

Felicity wishes to share her story with others and offers healing courses through her website.  She has authored a book titled Get Well Stay Well which is available through her website @
