Your knowledge about the way cancer works is your best defense
against a medical system where the deck is stacked against you.
Dr. Hauser does a great job of educating us in his newsletter
about how cancer works.
I’ll quote from Dr. Hauser’s latest interesting article in a
minute. But first, let’s review your biggest obstacle in the
cancer “system.” The problem is that most cancer doctors are
actually “chemotherapy specialists.” They are misnamed as
“oncologists,” which means “cancer specialists.”
Would you take your car to a mechanic whose entire tool chest
consisted of a screwdriver and a pair of pliers? Probably not,
unless you just didn’t know any better.
What if that mechanic was obtusely arrogant in his dismissal
of the vast array of other tools available to him? What if he
called the better equipped mechanics “stupid quacks” using
I am truly not against doctors. Many of them are truly dedi-
cated…heroic even. Think of those in “Doctors Without
Borders” working in Iraq and Africa and lots of other remote
and dangerous places for little or no pay. Obviously, if I
had some sort of trauma or sudden sickness, I would seek out
the best doctor I could find to help me.
What I AM against is ignorance and arrogance, both of which are
quite common among doctors, particularly about chronic diseases
like cancer. Almost daily, I hear of a doctor’s ignorance of
so-called “alternative” treatments causing death and disability
among my friends, family and readers.
A large portion of the world’s six million deaths from cancer
this year could be avoided if this ignorance and arrogance could
be overcome. But instead, the World Health Organization is
predicting a 50% increase in deaths from cancer by 2020. This is
a Holocaust II of unbelievable horror. For you, your only protec-
tion is to “get smart.”
Let me try to help.
In his latest IPT Newsletter, Dr. Ross Hauser has this to say
about cancer physiology:
“Can Insulin Potentiation Therapy (Low-Dose Chemotherapy) Be
An Option When The First Course of Traditional High-Dose
It is very common for traditional chemotherapy not to work
because cancer cells have many mechanisms to reject the chemo-
therapy given. The main way they do this is to stay in the
resting phase of the cell cycle.
When chemotherapy is given, up to 90% of the cancer cells can
be in the non-dividing part of the cell cycle. This means that
traditional chemotherapy will not kill them. It just causes
Insulin helps recruit cancer cells out of the resting phase and
into the dividing stage long enough to help the low dose chemo-
therapy kill them. Insulin also gives the cancer cells a reason
to uptake the chemotherapy. Insulin creates a ‘feeding frenzy’
in the cancer, making the cancer cells ‘crave’ the chemotherapy.
This helps get enough chemotherapy to the cancer cells to kill
them while leaving the majority of normal cells alone. This is
why IPT, we believe, in the majority of cancer cases, should be
a first line therapy. If this were the case there would be a lot
less e-mails from people about what to do when their chemotherapy
hasn’t worked. But to answer the question, get IPT, it is a
person’s best option.”
What Dr. Hauser doesn’t mention here is that Insulin Potentiated
Therapy (IPT) results in almost no side effects. It is roughly
10% of the strength of normal chemotherapy with thousands of
times the effect. If anything, the vitamin therapy the IPT
doctor gives you in conjunction with the low-dose chemo gives
you more energy.
Get smarter than your “chemotherapy specialist” and save your or
your loved one’s life in the process.
“Living Proof,” Dr. Gearin-Tosh’s Inspiring Book
Here’s an interesting book review for you from Jenny Thompson’s
Health Sciences Institute E-Alert. This is a great source of
health information which I subscribed to a year ago. A two-
year subscription is $79. The subscription gets you access to
their archives of back issues. If you’re interested in subscrib-
ing, just send an e-mail to:
Here’s Jenny’s review of “Living Proof.” I quote it here for
two reasons: 1) In hopes that you will read this inspiring
book; and 2) To give you a sample of Jenny Thompson’s remarkably
readable writing style:
“The book is titled ‘Living Proof: A Medical Mutiny,’ and the
author is Michael Gearin-Tosh, a don of English literature at
Oxford University. In 1994, at age 54, Gearin-Tosh was diagnosed
with multiple myeloma, a cancer of the bone marrow, considered
to be treatable but not curable. Less than 3 percent of multiple
myeloma patients survive 10 years. When diagnosed, he was told
that with aggressive chemotherapy he might live two years.
On one level, Gearin-Tosh’s story is about the world of chal-
lenges that every cancer patient experiences. The aspect that
sets his story apart from so many others is the course of treat-
ment he chose. After being told by one specialist that treating
his cancer with a dietary regimen would be ‘useless,’ and after
consultations with several doctors, a good deal of personal
research, and discussions with family and friends, Gearin-Tosh
chose to forego chemo, opting instead for less abrasive alterna-
Against all odds, nine years later, Gearin-Tosh is still alive.
He’s not cured – he still has myeloma – but the fact that he’s
still vital, still teaching, and still pursuing his treatments,
puts him, statistically, in a class by himself.
The road to therapy
During the first weeks after his diagnosis, Gearin-Tosh
researched different treatments on his own while weighing the
advice of friends. During this conflicted time (made no easier
by the anemia associated with his disease), he consulted several
doctors, some of who were impersonal in their manner and vague
when answering his questions. They insisted that immediate chemo-
therapy was the only reasonable way to go. What Gearin-Tosh found
lacking was a rational support for chemotherapy. He wondered: If
chemo is not a cure, then what’s the point? When pressed to
explain the merits of chemo, all they could offer was further
insistence that it was his only option.
But the book is in no way a diatribe against the medical profes-
sion. One doctor (a consultant, retired from practice) became a
reliable guide without ever pushing the patient in a direction
he didn’t want to go. Another doctor helped advise him in a wide
variety of options, both conventional and alternative.
Finally, two months after his diagnosis, just as he was about to
reluctantly begin chemotherapy, Gearin-Tosh made a breakthrough
in his research of treatments when he learned about a New York
City physician – Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez – who had successfully
treated many cancer patients with detoxification, vitamin supple-
ments, and a strict diet of vegetable juices.
Although he didn’t become a patient of Dr. Gonzalez, Gearin-Tosh
cancelled his chemotherapy and proceeded with a dietary regimen
(based on the Max Gerson cancer therapy) in combination with
high doses of vitamin supplements (following the guidelines of
Linus Pauling and Dr. Abram Hoffer). He also practiced visualiz-
ation techniques involving special breathing exercises, took
coffee and castor oil enemas (to stimulate detoxification in the
liver), and visited an acupuncturist on a regular basis.
A living part
One of the most striking things about this book is the way
Gearin-Tosh tells his story. He saves it from being a grim tale
by frequently interjecting moments of gentle humor and inter-
esting characters (such as a houseguest, a captain in the
Russian Army, who Gearin-Tosh discovers one morning cooking
breakfast at 6:00 AM and drinking champagne).
More importantly, Gearin-Tosh never preaches. He doesn’t urge
other cancer patients to embrace any particular therapies. He
doesn’t suggest, for instance, that acupuncture or coffee enemas
or quarts of fresh carrot juice will save the lives of all cancer
patients. And he doesn’t even condemn chemotherapy, noting that
certain doctors have developed specialized chemo techniques
combined with bone marrow transplants that have helped make
chemotherapy more effective in treating multiple myeloma.
Instead, in what Gearin-Tosh calls the core of his argument, he
encourages cancer patients to be open-minded, questioning, and
to trust their instincts. He believes that the ideal goal is to
become an involved, ‘living part’ of any therapy that’s chosen.
But with the thoughtfulness of someone who’s been there, he
tempers this advice with the phrase, ‘if you feel you can.’
Nutrition, nutrition, nutrition
The book concludes with an eloquent, peer-reviewed case history
of the patient, written by Carmen Wheatley, a former student of
Gearin-Tosh’s, and one of his most dedicated supporters through-
out his treatment period. Dr. Wheatley (a doctor of philosophy)
concludes the history with a statement by Dr. Jeffrey Bland, a
biochemist who simply states that every cancer therapy should
include nutritional consultation as a standard of care. Not to,
he says, should be considered ‘malpractice by omission.’
Strong words. Hopefully they’ll be heard by doctors and their
patients far and wide.
Carmen Wheatley’s entire case history is available online at
(click on ‘Myeloma Case Study’). ‘Living Proof’ is published by
Scribner.” […and is available on amazon.com].
Some Interesting Questions…
A reader asked me some interesting questions the other day. I’ll
show you his questions and my answers. I hope you can come up
with even better answers than mine.
“Question 1. If there are cheaper alternative treatments, in fact
cures, why do Insurance companies not fight to make those treat-
ments legal? It is in their interest, isn’t it? Instead of paying
up to $500,000 for Chemo for a single patient, they can just pay
$15,000 for IPT or less for Dr. Matthias Rath’s Cellular medicine.”
My Answer. Sure seems logical, doesn’t it. I’ve often wondered
about the same thing.
The best answer I can come up with is that the insurance companies
are part of the cancer treatment ‘system’ which, in this country
and the EU is ‘managed’ from start to finish by the pharmaceutical
companies. They lobby the federal governments ‘big time.’ They
pay millions of dollars to support politicians campaigns. They
control what is taught in the medical schools. They control what
is or is not controlled by the FDA. They control the writing of
professional journal articles. They control the research. Need
I go on…..
Insurance companies and HMOs, on whom most doctors are dependent,
are interested only in the “standard of care” for each disease.
What is this ‘standard of care?’ It is what’s written in the
Physician’s Desk Reference (PDR). Doctors and their insurance
companies can be sued if they deviate from the ‘standard of care.’
Most successful malpractice suits use this as their primary argument
— the doctor deviated from the ‘standard of care.’ Who writes the
PDR? You guessed it — the drug companies.
Who makes the most money from cancer ‘treatment’ that meets the
‘standard of care?’ You guessed it — the drug companies.
In my opinion, the entire medical/insurance ‘system’ needs to be
scrapped and we need to start fresh. That will not happen in my
lifetime, so I will continue to try to educate people on how to
live with a system which starts from incorrect assumptions about
treating chronic, degenerative disease like cancer.
“Question 2. One of the theories is that ‘when the immune system
is weak, we get cancer as it is not fighting the growth of damaged
cells.’ Is getting a cold a sign of a weak immune system? Don’t
we recover from colds, flu, etc. pretty quickly? If our immune
system is strong enough to control colds, why can’t it control
My Answer. Cancer cells are quite different from cells infected
with a flu virus. Cancer cells have a DNA which says ‘replicate
out of control’ instead of ‘kill me if I am incorrect.’ The immune
system recognizes such cells and kills them every day by the
thousands until the numbers of cancer cells overwhelm the immune
system and we ‘get cancer’ OR the cancer cells learn to hide from
the immune system and we ‘get cancer.’ Yes, people with very
strong immune systems sometimes get cancer.
This is quite different from flu virus-infected cells, which
trigger a response from the immune system which we call a ‘cold’
or ‘flu.’ In the latter case, the symptoms we get (runny nose,
sore throat, fever, etc.) are simply caused by the immune system
fighting the diseased cells.
There are no such symptoms with cancer cells. They just get
‘eaten’ by the macrophage cells, killed by the natural killer cells
or otherwise dealt with by the immune system (a very complex subject)
with no symptoms.
Usually, when the immune system cannot handle the numbers of cancer
cells, a tumor forms or the bone marrow is affected (leukemia) or
skin lesions appear or lymph glands swell or….and, yes, sometimes
this happens even when the immune system is healthy.
Cancer kills us because the ‘replicate out of control’ cells inter-
fere with the functions of our normal cells and organs. It is this
‘interference’ which causes the symptoms of cancer.”
A Reader’s Story
Here is Marguerite’s story. I’ve enjoyed a lively exchange with
this lady for over six months now. I think you will find her
story interesting and helpful:
Ten years ago I had breast cancer and I elected to have both
breasts taken off. They took 24 lymph nodes out of my left arm
and said only two showed cancer. I then had 4 massive treatments
I took Tomoxifen for five years and, lo and behold, eight years
later I got the cancer back in the lung and liver. Back to chemo
for a little over one year. Every three weeks I got it. I was at
the point ‘The hell with it.’ I didn’t care one way or another.
Then I got an e-mail from one of the food sites, and they mentioned
you and the book you wrote. So I thought ‘What do I have to lose?’
I sent for your book and read it.
On July 16th was my last chemo and by then I was done reading your
book. By Aug. I was taking MGN-3, 12 a day and Beta 1,3, Glucan,
3 a day. I took these supplements till just two weeks ago. I just
cut them back to 4 MGN-3 and 2 Beta 1,3 Glucan. I have had four
Cat scans since I started taking them, and each time, the cancer
is shrinking. This last cat scan showed the cancer gone from the
lung, and a tiny one showing at the liver.
The doctor is well pleased with the way I’m coming along. I have
never felt better and I’m doing more things. I went to Florida in
Oct. with the intent to sell the house I have there and my husband
said ‘Let’s keep it for awhile.’ Now I’m glad I did. I thought the
cancer was going to spread. But I believe it was the MGN-3 and the
Beta 1,3 Glucan that stopped it in its tracks.
I want to thank you so very much for writing the book. I’m telling
everyone about the MGN-3 and the Beta 1,3 Glucan. Also, the doctor
was the first one to know that I was taking them.
Thank you again………………….
A CHEAPER MGN-3 SOURCE
A while back I vowed I was through talking about cheaper sources
for MGN-3. Going back on my vow, let me add to your list a site
which beats them all for the price on the 500 mg size capsules.
The jar contains 30 of the 500 mg capsules and costs $46. Here’s
one reader’s reaction who tried this site:
“Thanks for sending along the new source (Absolute Sports Nutrition)
for MGN-3. I have placed an order with them for six bottles, which
comes with no shipping charge (over $200 order), and they have a
little bonus program called ‘Pay It Forward’ in which they bank 5%
of your order and deduct it from your next order. Every little bit
At first glance, it looked like a great deal, but their $46.00
bottles have 30 caplets whereas the $86.00 bottles I buy at my
local health food store has 50 caplets. So the ‘bargain’ is that
the MGN-3 caplets cost $1.53 each instead of $1.72…still a
savings and better than any other alternative currently known or
on the table.”
PROSTATE CANCER AND BPH CAUSED BY INFLAMMATION?
Duncan Cross is a researcher, speaker and writer on medical
subjects. He lives in Great Britain. He believes that all
diseases, both physical & mental, are caused by chemicals,
primarily those in our food supply.
Duncan has asked me to try one of his theories out on you, my
erudite readers. We would both appreciate feedback on this
theory from you.
Duncan feels that it is quite likely that enlargement of the
prostate (BPH) is caused by inflammation. Generally, when some-
thing inflames, it increases in size, no? Hemorrhoids, for
Duncan points out that the prostate cancer rate among Oriental
men is very low when they live in the Orient. However, among
Chinese and Japanese men who move to Hawaii, their prostate
cancer rate rises to that of other American males. Almost
certainly, this is caused by the many chemicals added to our
food supply in the soil and the processing.
If BPH and prostate cancer are caused by inflammation, wouldn’t
the treatment of these conditions change dramatically?
Duncan and I will be very interested in your comments.
By the way, after two months on beta sitosterol, my BPH symptoms
have reduced to almost nil. I rarely get up at night any more,
at most once. My urine flow is much stronger and I have no
incontinence or urgency. If you’re not a male over 50, you’re
probably saying…SO? But for us seventy-somethings, this is
really good news. Tell your male friends and relatives about it.
Beta sitosterol is available for a very CHEAP price, exactly
$9.46 for 60 capsules, a 30-day supply. Just go to:
