Update on Navarro Urine Cancer Test
**** Codex Alimentarius Update
**** Wow! What A Great “Disclaimer”
Welcome to this 81st issue of my newsletter. As you can see, I have reverted to the “plain text” mode for my newsletter. There were just too many complaints from people for whom the HTML version didn’t appear properly on their e-mail programs. Since my priority is communication and not “style,” I’m going to go back to the plain text mode I used for five years.

Karon Beattie, the principal author of the Natural Cancer Treatments e-books, has joined me in an effort to get you a place to get questions answered, post comments about your own treatment and, generally, communicate with other cancer patients. We call it the Cancer Success Forum. You will find it at:
Take a look at it. You need to read the brief “Rules.” Then, click on the “Discussion Forum” link and see if there are any topics which interest you. If not, start a new topic. Someone — Karon or me or some other Forum member — will get you an answer.
I think you’ll like this new way of communicating. Try it and see.
Update on Navarro Urine Cancer Test
Before you read this next article, you might want to go and take a look at a couple of articles in my February 8th, 2005 newsletter. They were on “Navarro Urine Cancer Test” and “Foundation for Advancement of Cancer Therapy (FACT).” To read these articles, just go to:
There are some new developments regarding testing for your level of cancer using a urine sample. First, I had a discussion about the “Navarro Urine Cancer Test” with Dr. Kindness, the owner of the lab in Cincinnati, Ohio which does this test. He told me they had modified the way the test was done by Dr. Navarro and his son in the Philippines. He said that the Navarros did not take into account the volume of the urine sample, which he claimed was important.
Instead of a single number indicating the level of human chorionic gonadotrophin (HCG), Dr. Kindness’ lab is reporting to the patient the “HCG per mg of creatanine.” He said this was necessary to standardize the results. The problem with this, of course, is that it does not give the patient the ability to measure the effectiveness of his/her treatment by comparing the trend in the HCG from one test to the next.
I ordered a test kit from Dr. Kindness’ lab and received it a couple of days ago. It asks the patient to submit a bottle of morning urine (10 – 90 ml) by Fed Ex in a sterile urine cup. They furnish the cup with the kit, along with a plastic bag to ship it in and a Fed Ex envelope. The cost, which is not reimburseable by Medicare, is $60. No doctor’s prescription or other information on diagnosis, etc. is required. According to one of my readers in New York, it takes about 2 1/2 weeks to get the results.
…THE REST OF THE STORY…
Because the information I gave you on this in February came from Ruth Sackman, the founder of FACT, I gave Ruth a call. As I expected, she had a somewhat different view. Ruth is a unique lady. She will turn 90 in September. She has more acumen than most people I have met, regardless of age. Ruth and her husband founded FACT in the early 70’s and she has been counseling cancer patients about natural healing ever since on a non-profit basis. A friend of mine, Ed van Overloop, was kind enough to send me an audio tape of a talk she gave to his cancer support group in New Jersey in January this year. She is, indeed, a unique lady!
Ruth and I had an interesting conversation. Ruth has been instructing people about sending urine samples to Dr. Navarro’s lab in the Philippines for over 30 years. Last year, she located Dr. Kindness and his lab in Ohio and got him to agree to do the test the same way Dr. Navarro (and now his son) had done it. She said that Dr. Kindness did not stick to his agreement about the test. He modified the way he was presenting the results and, thereby, lost the value of the test, as mentioned above. Ruth has been recommending for a couple of months that her people order their tests from Dr. Navarro in The Philippines rather than from Dr. Kindness’ lab in Ohio.
Ruth sent me the instructions on how to get the HCG test done by Dr. Navarro’s lab. I’m going to put those instructions AT THE END of this newsletter — as part of the text, not an attachment.
The cost for the test is $50 US Dollars. Again, no doctor’s prescription is required. Compare this to the AMAS blood test (covered in my book) which costs $135 plus shipping and requires a doctor’s prescription. Also, the urine test is more accurate than the AMAS test. You send the $50 to a U.S. address and then include a Xerox copy of the money order or cashier’s check in the package you send (by First Class mail) to The Philippines. What you send them is not a bottle of urine, but a dry packet of the sediment. The text at the end of this newsletter explains exactly how to do that. It’s not hard. It says “Please allow 4-6 weeks for test result delivery when mailing from USA, Canada or Europe.”
Ruth and her small staff are still counseling cancer patients. They are available from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM (Eastern Time) weekdays at (212) 741-2790.
As I told the folks on our teleclass call last Thursday, I have recently gotten information on something every cancer patient should be aware of. It is called the Vibrational Integration Bio-Photonic Energizer (VIBE) machine.
One of my readers mentioned this machine to me a couple of years ago. I didn’t pay much attention. Another version of the “Rife Machine,” I thought. Well, I now think I was wrong. That is not a first, by the way.
What convinced me to take a real look was a call from a reader in Montana. He had bought one of these machines (for $18,000!!) and gave me a stunning account of his first hand witness of all kinds of people being healed by his machine, including several cancer patients.
I then called the inventor, Gene Koonce, in Greeley, Colorado. We had a long and interesting chat. Gene is an electrical engineer. He feels he has perfected a machine first invented by Dr. Georges Lakhovsky in the early 1900’s. The principle, in very over-simplified terms, is to do what it takes to return the body’s cells to their normal voltage and frequency. Other machines like Rife’s and the low frequency magnetic therapy machines described in my book have similar effects. What makes the VIBE machine attractive to me is that trying it can be very inexpensive.
Gene Koonce’s company has sold 89 of the machines in Colorado alone since 2002, when it was first sold. They are now all over the U.S. Many of the people who have bought them are treating others for $20 to $40 a treatment. A treatment lasts about two minutes and you have to be next to the machine (within about 3 feet). But for $200 or so for 5 to 10 treatments (one per day, apparently), you can see for yourself if it works. Rife machines cost a lot more than that. The only drawback seems to be that you have to go where the machine is and stay for a few days. However, the treatment is non-invasive and non-toxic.
Gene claims to have healed everything from Hepatitis C to stuttering to drug addiction to multiple sclerosis to Parkinson’s to, of course, cancer of all types. He also claims several M.D.’s as well as Stanford, Harvard and several other universities and government agencies (whoops!) are studying it now. He promised to send me a list of people in the U.S. willing to treat others, but I haven’t received it yet. When I do, I’ll try to publish it to you, with his permission, of course.
In the meantime, if you are interested, first take a look at the web site:
Don’t miss the 30-minute interview with Gene on the page labeled “Published Articles.”
Then, you may want to call Gene’s office in Greeley, Colorado at (970) 356-9594 and ask them for a location in your area where you can check it out.
CODEX ALIMENTARIUS UPDATE
If you’re plugged in to the Codex Alimentarius information network like I am, you have probably gotten several messages in the last two weeks about new developments — good and bad. A July 4th meeting of the Codex Alimentarius Commission in Rome was attended by Dr. Laibow, the most active opponent of Big Pharma’s attempt to wipe out the supplement industry. Her report is at the web site below. Not good news.
Also there, in Tim Bolen’s report, is a report on the Big Pharma lobby’s successful attempt to seed the 400-page Central American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA) bill, which is about to be voted on by the U.S. House of Representatives, with restrictions on natural supplements. Not good news. There is information on how to contact your Congressperson, which I have done. You should, too.
Also, there is a report in the second web site below on action by the European Court of Justice to water down the implementation of the EU Directive, which was to go into effect in August of this year. Essentially, they have limited the application of the new rules only to synthetic supplements (those made by Big Pharma companies), not to natural supplements. Good news.
Here is Tim Bolen’s first of two articles on the above. I suggest you read them both.
“Big Pharma” Stabs Planet Earth…
Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen
Friday, July 8th, 2005
My last two broadcasts “Vitamins to be Banned Worldwide…”, and “Big pharma” Controls US “TV News”… have generated a major response. They seem to have been forwarded everywhere, and I can’t keep up with the volume of email questions I’m getting – so I’ll answer the questions here…
Yes, it’s true that the “Codex Alimentarius” commission in Rome, July 4th, 2005, passed restriction of supplement guidelines that would, in effect, destroy the supplement industry in it’s entirety – except for that controlled outright by “Big Pharma.”
Yes, it’s true that the “CAFTA (Central American Free Trade Agreement)” legislation currently being rushed through the US Congress contains, within its language, the mechanism to force “harmonization” of US laws to “Codex” requirements destroying the protection afforded under the 1994 DSHEA (Dietary Supplement Health & Education Act) law.
Yes, it’s true that “Big Pharma” is behind this move – they have that much power and money.

“Big Pharma” versus Everybody…
Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen
Thursday, July 14th, 2005
A seven-thousand-five-hundred-dollar hand-tailored business suit. A fifteen-hundred-dollar designer tie. A four-hundred-fifty-dollar belt. Twenty-five-hundred dollar hand-made shoes. Three-hundred-fifty-dollar hand-made silk underwear. And, a twenty-five-thousand dollar hand-made watch.
Who’s wearing this? Every one of the roughly seven thousand lobbyists working for “Big Pharma” trying to get laws, and treaties, favorable to their aims, through the US Congress. They dress like this for two reasons (1) with the money “Big Pharma” is paying them they can afford to, and (2) they want to make “the right impression.”
Their current project is to get CAFTA (the Central American Free Trade Agreement) passed. It’s important to them – and they’ve pulled out all of the stops.
Despite all the money, they are not winning. Although the “health freedom” movement had a temporary setback with the loss of the “Codex” battle in Rome, July 4th, 2005, we won a MUCH larger battle in the European Court of Justice.

Now, here are the instructions for getting the Navarro Urine Cancer Test from Dr. Navarro’s lab in The Philippines:
HCG Urine Immunoassay
A safe, cost-effective, non-invasive, accurate screening for Cancer
Developed in the late 1930’s by the renowned oncologist, the late Dr. Manuel D. Navarro, the test detects the presence of HCG in urine. It indicates the presence of cancer cells even before signs or symptoms develop. Dr. Navarro found HCG to be elevated in all types of cancers.
The test is based on a theory proposed by Dr. Howard Beard and other researchers who contend that cancer is related to a misplaced trophoblast cell that becomes malignant in a manner similar to pregnancy in that they both secrete HCG. As a consequence, a measure of the amount of HCG found in the blood or urine is also a measure of the degree of malignancy. The higher the number, the greater the severity of the cancer.
Urine, as opposed to blood or serum, is the preferred specimen for the test. In 1980, Papapetrou and co-authors reported the correctness of the urine specimen to be used in HCG Immunoassay. In 32 proven cancer cases, the immunoassay test gave 31 positive results using urine while only 12 positive results were reported using blood. HCG has been found to undergo glycosylation in the liver as it travels in the hepatic circulation. Thus, the HCG molecule cannot be detected. The molecule does not undergo this process in the kidney and therefore the molecule remains intact in the urine.
The test detects the presence of brain cancer as early as 29 months before symptoms appear; 27 months for fibrosarcoma of the abdomen; 24 months for skin cancer; 12 months for cancer of the bones (metastasis from breast cancer extirpated 2 years earlier).
Currently, many cancer patients take advantage of the diagnostic accuracy of this test as an indicator of the effectiveness of their specific mode of therapy. Patients follow a simple direction for preparing a dry extract from the urine sample. The powdery extract is mailed to the Navarro Medical Clinic where the HCG testing is performed.
For further information, contact the following organizations Navarro Medical Clinic Dr. Efren Navarro 3553 Sining Street Morningside Terrace Santa Mesa, Manila Philippines 011-(632) 714-7442 NavarroMedical@excite.com
Mrs. Erlinda Saurez 631 Peregrine Drive Palatine, Illinois 60067 (847) 359-3634 [Evening calls appreciated]
Directions for Urine Sample Preparation
(1) From an early morning urine, take 50 cc (1.7 oz.) and add 200 cc (7 oz.) of acetone (can be purchased from hardware store or pharmacy) and 5 cc (.2 oz) of alcohol, either rubbing or ethyl. Stir and mix well. (2) Let it stand in the refrigerator for 2 hours until sediment is formed. Throw off about half of the urine-acetone mixture without losing any sediment. Filter the remainder through a coffee filter or laboratory filter paper. (3) When filtration is over, dry the filter with its sediment. Fold and wrap in aluminum foil. Send by First Class mail to the Navarro Medical Clinic (address listed above) including a Xerox copy of the money order or cashier’s check with the patient’s name, address, sex, age and a brief clinical history and/or diagnosis. (4) PRECAUTION: No sexual contact for 12 days for female patients before collecting the urine sample. For males, no sexual contact for 18-24 hours before collecting the urine sample. DO NOT SEND URINE IF THE PATIENT IS PREGNANT.
Send the $50 (money order or cashier’s check) to: Erlinda N. Saurez 631 Peregrine Drive Palatine, IL 60067-7005 USA
Please allow 4-6 weeks for test result delivery when mailing from USA, Canada or Europe.
The HCG Immunity Link By Ruth Sackman
Dr. Howard Beard, a biochemist and cancer patient, found that he could monitor his cancer by doing the human chorionic gonadotrophin (HCG) immunoassay to determine how actively his body was producing unnecessary cells or controlling cell production at a normal level. This HCG test is used to determine pregnancy, a natural process, whereby the body is producing excess cells for the development of a fetus. Dr. Beard’s theory was that if HCG levels rose but no fetus was developing, then abnormal cell production was taking place which, to him, signified a cancer problem. Dr. Manuel Navarro agreed with this philosophy and established a measuremen to diagnose cancer. A tumor would not be clinically evident immediately but in time might manifest in men as well as women.
Two scientists with the West London Hospital, Helen Davies and S. F. Contractor were interested in one of the most mysterious biological processes – how the body knew when birth was ready at the end of nine months gestation. They reported in the British journal Nature that they believe birth is really a process of rejection initiated by the body’s own defense system. The reason this rejection is controlled is because above normal amounts of HCG appear in the mother’s urine during pregnancy. HCG, they believe, prevents the mother’s sentry cells (lymphocytes) from recognizing the foreign protein (fetus). The HCG levels remain high until just before birth when a drop in HCG triggers the rejection of the fetus and birth occurs. Without such recognition, rejection cannot take effect, ergo, when the HCG titre is above normal on the HCG test, cancer cell rejection does not take place.
Therefore, Dr. Beard’s theory of measuring HCG levels has a sound scientific basis. Low levels of HCG allow the body to reject abnormal protein just as it rejects the fetus, and high levels interfere with the body’s ability to build the lymphocytes necessary to effect rejection of cancer cells.
This theory validates Dr. Beard’s conclusion that the HCG measurement found in the urine was a competent system to diagnose and monitor cancer cell activity.
