Welcome to this 116th issue of my newsletter. About 24 months of past issues are available at this web site. Just click on the “Newsletter Archive” link on the left of the screen. The articles tend to be “timeless,” so read or reread some of them at your leisure.

I’ve decided to relax my newsletter “schedule” this year. I’m going to send you one of these each month — with maybe interesting announcements sprinkled between. With my new web talk radio show, local and remote speaking engagements and just the essence of being (bridge, golf, travel, time with my spouse, etc.), I find I need to cut back a bit.


Dr. Hamer’s “New German Medicine”

OK, I”m going to do it. I’ve been thinking about and collecting information on this subject for months. I still have mixed emotions about it. But it seems so pertinent and important to those of us who believe in “thinking outside the box” that I just have to pass on what I know. I sincerely hope you will explore it and tell me what you think.

Dr. Ryke Geerd Hamer is a medical pioneer in the truest sense. He has suffered through many years of persecution for his ideas. His most recent jail term was in France and ended in 2006. What was the charge? Well, 2 or 3 cancer patients in France supposedly tried his theories and died. He had no knowledge of or contact with them. Nevertheless, their relatives brought suit. He was convicted by a French court and sentenced to nine months in jail. He was living in Madrid at the time and had no knowledge of the trial or the conviction until it appeared in the local paper in Madrid.

The prosecutors discovered after the verdict that EU Directives allowed extradition only for sentences of over one year. They went back to the French judge and got the sentence increased to three years. Dr. Hamer was forcibly brought to France and served about 16 months of the sentence in horrible French jails.

I wanted you to know this story before you read about Dr. Hamer. It is only the most recent of his jail terms. You see, the medical establishment in Europe is, if possible, even more punishing to advocates of new medical ideas than ours here in the U.S. This has not dissuaded this 70-year old man from continuing to save cancer patients with a 90% success rate (verified by the courts).


Rather than try to tell you the whole story of Dr. Hamer’s “New German Medicine,” I’m going to give you two websites which have all the information you need to explore it. If you’re interested, you can read about it at no cost.

Then, if you’re interested in exploring the treatment for your cancer, the second website has this service available in Reno, Nevada. You can order a DVD from them of a two-hour seminar on this “New Medicine” presented by Dr. David Holt.

In my opinion, it is a subject that everyone should be familiar with. To start your reading on it, please go to:

Follow their suggestions to read the “Introduction,” “Overview,” and then the “Interview.” The latter is an interview with Dr. Hamer where he describes his experience with his theories about cancer and other “diseases.”

The second website I learned about when Dr. David Holt, one of the doctors at the Reno Integrative Medical Center, sent me the DVD I mentioned above. It covers his experience with the “New German Medicine.” I will quote from the clinic’s website to give you an idea of his opinions:

“In the Spring of 2006 we set out to prove that Dr. Hamer’s assertions regarding cancer (and most other disease) were incorrect. After having received some initial training and applying these concepts to our patients for several months we were confronted with an abundant amount of empirical evidence supporting Hamer’s ideas. Our most basic assumptions regarding cancer had been incorrect! This paradigm turns conventional medicine and even much of alternative medicine on its head, but once an understanding of the process is grasped, it points the way in terms of choosing various diagnostic or therapeutic interventions.”

I hope that gets your attention. Dr. Holt works at the clinic started in 1980 by Dr. Douglas Brodie. Dr. Brodie was one of the greatest holistic cancer healers I am aware of. I admired him greatly without ever really knowing him, just from his reputation. Unfortunately, he passed away in 2005. However, the clinic he started in Reno, Nevada carries on his work in a manner which I’m sure makes him proud.

Just go to their website:

Among other things, you will find there both an 8-page and a 23-page pdf file. They describe what the clinic calls the “German New Medicine” in less or more detail — your choice. If you call the clinic, ask about Dr. Holt’s DVD called “Introduction to ‘German New Medicine.'” You can reach them at (775) 829-1009. Their office hours are 9-5 Monday through Thursday and 9-1 on Friday (Pacific Time).

Look into this, folks. It is fascinating and possibly revolutionary. I’m going to try to get Dr. Holt on my web talk radio show soon.


A Cure For Leukemia?

My friend, Rich Folts, sent me this article on leukemia last week. I think you’ll find it interesting if this subject is part of your life:

Acute Myeloid Leukemia, Chronic Myeloid Leukemia, and Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia Can be CURED by a Combination of Natural Medicines

This essay is reposted from our subscription Natural Medicine blog in the public interest.

When I was a graduate student at Berkeley in the 1980’s, I attended an International Hematology Conference in San Francisco. I overheard a conversation between one of America’s prominent hematologists and some of his colleagues.

‘What would you do if you were diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia?’ they asked.

‘I would commit suicide,’ he quickly responded.

Acute and chronic myeloid leukemia (AML and CML) are largely incurable diseases. The drug Gleevec has showed some promise in the treatment of CML, but it does not CURE the disease. Eventually, people taking Gleevec become resistant to the drug. When this occurs, they become susceptible to a ‘blast crisis’ which invariably ends their life within months of diagnosis.

One of my friends died a horrible death from AML. He bled to death in front of his entire family.

In 2005 a paper was published showing that the plant hormone parthenolide induced apoptosis in AML stem and progenitor cells. This cell death was mediated by a reduction in NF-kappaB, and an increase in p53 activity. In some medical circles, parthenolide is now considered a stand alone CURE for CML.

Unfortunately, parthenolide is not soluble in water thereby severely limiting its bioavailability in the body.

In December, 2007, an orally available form of parthenolide was developed by the authors of the first study. In tissue culture and dog studies, this orally available form of parthenolide killed AML stem and progenitor cells and blast cells from both CML and acute lymphocytic leukemia. Normal stem cells were not harmed.

Parthenolide is active at very low concentrations (5 microM). Although this compound is not soluble in water, it can be introduced topically into the body via a DMSO gel. We will discuss this protocol in future essays.

Methyl jasmonate can induce the differentiation of AML and other leukemic cells into normal cells. This has nothing to do with killing stem or progenitor cells. This form of re-differentiation is well established in the lab, but the toxicity of the chemicals prevents their use clinically. MJ is active in the re-differentiation process at VERY LOW concentrations, 0.4 mM.

The p53 tumor suppressor plays a critical role in the death of leukemic stem and progenitor cells. As cited in previous essays, p53 protein concentrations can be increased by flax lignans.

Three natural medicines, and possibly more, can kill leukemic stem and progenitor cells and induce the re-differentiation of leukemic cells into their normal counterpart. NO synthetic drug or drugs can accomplish these clinical objectives.”

I wanted to pass this on so those of you interested in leukemia could research it further. Onward and upward!


Proton Beam Therapy — Yeah, Right!

Maybe you read the story in the New York Times last week on Proton Beam Therapy for cancer. It was reprinted in several newspapers. Here is one online site where you can read this interesting article:

This is just the latest of the ridiculous expenditures of billions to chase the symptoms of cancer. Will we ever wake up? Cancer can only be healed by addressing the cause. That doesn’t cost much, is pretty quick (usually 4-6 weeks) and rapidly improves your quality of life instead of destroying it.

All of us need to be aware of these extreme examples of the fallacies in our medical system. I don’t know about you, but these silly uses of expensive technology remind me that we know what we are doing and “they” don’t have a clue. Of all the presidential candidates, only Ron Paul shows some knowledge of the above. I’m afraid he’s going to lose to the mainstream politicians, but he’s still refreshing.


A Reader’s Story — TrevaJean Edwardson

Here is an interesting story I think you’ll find interesting.

“Dear Bill,

I read in your newsletter about the AMAS test for cancer. I ordered the kit online and just got the results back today – NORMAL. I believe it is because I took the advice from your book, ‘Cancer Free’ and changed my diet, took the supplements to boost my immune system and am getting out in the sunshine.

I refused the chemo and radiation the doctor recommended after having a lumpectomy for breast cancer. I really wish I had refused the surgery – I think I would have done better without it, but my whole family was pressuring me and I caved in. (Having a doctor for a husband didn’t help in this situation.) He hasn’t been very supportive and still says, ‘It doesn’t matter what you eat.’ I am sticking to my healthy diet and am going to continue with the supplements. I’m still spreading the word about your book and your website and newsletter whenever I get the chance.

Keep up the good work! God Bless you!

Jeanie has told me to pass on her e-mail address and encourage any of you who have questions to contact her. Here it is:


In the December 6th newsletter, I quoted a message from Dixie Chirwa. At the time, I wasn’t sure if Dixie wanted me to pass on her contact information. Since then, she has told me she would be happy for me to give it to you. So, here is Dixie’s e-mail address:

You’ll find Dixie’s story at:




Duke Stone sent me this e-mail on another use of the incredibly useful baking soda:

“Now that it is colder we use a pot of hot water on the stove to keep the house air from being too dry —- Well two weeks ago I decided to put baking soda in the water and get the ph up to about a 10. It is normally about 6. Guess what? The dryness and the junk that was constantly coating my nostrils is gone and my saliva has been staying alkaline. This week I put the baking soda in a little breathing device and got that alkaline vapor going into my lungs and I feel a lot better. I have been arguing with candida for a long time. I sure hope this will have an effect on it also.


Getting your pH up is a primary part of healing cancer. Try Duke’s method. It may work for you.



Mike Adams in his great online magazine “News Target” had a good article recently on breast cancer treatment and diagnosis. Everyone should read this (men and women alike). Here is the link to this really good article:



We all need to keep in mind that nothing works for everyone. Even though I believe that the flaxseed oil/cottage cheese combination is a uniquely effective way to treat any cancer, I feel obliged to pass on a message from Marina Kuran about her experience with it. While I think hers is a rare (maybe even unique) experience, I thought I should pass it on. Here is her message:

“Aloha Bill. I struggled with whether or not to write this email but then decided that even if there is only one other person out there who benefits from my experience, it is worth it.

As you know, a cancer diagnosis is a very frightening thing, and it is natural for one to reach out to anything that may offer a sense of cure, of hope. Many of these people have already been victimized by the allopathic medical field and are desperate for a more natural, alternative solution. I know that I was. But whether allopathic or alternative, people need to practice a lot of caution. My personal journey has led me to the belief that good health does not come out of a bottle, but it is more in one’s attitude, sense of humor, the company one keeps, etc. I’d like to see your books not only speak to supplements and foods, but to things like yoga, qigong, the breath, meditation, etc. These are equally if not more important than what we consume.

But let me get to why I am writing this. For over a year, I have been plagued with mysterious and very painful spasming attacks at night, about 5 of them in that time. When the attacks aren’t occuring, I am left with an uncomfortable pain in the right, upper abdominal quadrant. I went through more tests (invasive and non-invasive) than you can imagine, saw many doctors, got jabbed, spent over $6,000 (and that doesn’t include time lost from work), got very stressed, discouraged, dropped weight, etc. None of the doctors could figure out what was wrong with me, because everything came back negative. Finally I figured out that the cause of my problem was the Budwig Diet. YES, YOU HEARD THAT RIGHT. It took me forever to figure it out because I couldn’t possibly see how two foods that could be so good for you when mixed together were so bad for me! But the problem is that they have been causing my biliary duct to spasm. For whatever reason, in spite of how small the amount of the mixture, my body can’t handle it.

I urge you when you do consultations with your new clients to advise them to be cautious about how much and what supplementation they do – perhaps introducing ONE thing at a time because that is the only way to know how it is affecting us. More is not always better! I regret not having done this myself. I was so eager to get ‘healthy’ that I started taking way too many things at the same time and did more harm in the sake of health than good. Gradually I began to drop them all because I hated taking tons of pills every day. Instead, I opted to just do foods, so the Budwig Diet remained.

So, for what it’s worth, here’s MY prescription for health: Keep it simple; eat a well- balanced, healthy diet with as many organics as possible and stay away from refined foods, especially sugar; laugh a lot; spend time in nature; keep good company (both inside and out); meditate and pray daily in whatever form feels right for you; forgive yourself and others; don’t hold on to resentments; get plenty of exercise; and, above all else, LOVE YOURSELF EXACTLY THE WAY YOU ARE.

Wishing you happy holidays and all the best,


Thank you, Marina. Let’s just remember — nothing works for everyone.



Finally, here’s something which will give you a few “yuks.” Just click on this link and sit back and chuckle:


OK, enough for this time. I’ll be back in February with another newsletter.

And don’t forget my bribe. Send me your story about your cancer experience — good, bad or neutral — and I’ll send you a free copy of my e-book “Cancer -Free (Second Edition).” Your story may help many other people. Just let me know if you want me to include your name or e-mail address when I publish it in the newsletter. I will certainly respect your privacy.

Do your friends a favor and send them to my web site:

Be well!

Although many alternative medical treatments have been successfully used for many years, they are currently not practiced by conventional medicine and are therefore not “approved” and legal (in some States) for medical professionals to prescribe for their patients, although it is legal for individuals to use them at their own discretion. It therefore becomes necessary to include the following disclaimer:

The offerings made by this publication are to be carefully considered by the user. All responsibility regarding the use of alternative treatments rests with the patient. If you have doubts regarding these things, rely on your conventional doctor.
