Save Big $$$$ On Quality Flaxseed Oil

Good news for all of you using cottage cheese and flaxseed oil (the famous “Budwig” diet) to recover from your cancer. I have discovered a very inexpensive way to get the highest quality of flaxseed oil.

For many years, Barlean’s has been the top quality supplier of flaxseed oil. I have not recommended it because the only source I knew for it was more expensive than the oil from Swanson Vitamins web site. Jack Peterson, one of my alert readers, and an 81-year-old cancer survivor, has informed me that Barlean’s, the freshest flaxseed oil there is, can now be ordered direct from the manufacturer. In fact, they have a special on for cancer patients. Here are the facts:

Order five 32-ounce bottles of flaxseed oil from Barlean’s and it will cost you exactly $16.25 per bottle or $81.25. No tax and they pay the freight. The cost per ounce is just about 51 cents. Why five bottles? Well, they pay the freight for orders over $75. Otherwise, the shipping is $5 anywhere in the U.S.

Compare that to the same product in the health food store. I tried. They didn’t have any of the 32-ounce bottles. However, the 16-ounce bottle was $16.99 plus 8% tax equals $18.35 or $1.15 per ounce (plus your gas to get to the store).

A more realistic comparison might be to Allen’s Club (more below on this source). Allen sells the same Barlean’s product but in a 12-ounce bottle at a special cancer patient’s price of $7.50 plus shipping. The shipping works out to about $1.00 per bottle. That’s 71 cents an ounce. Actually, Allen orders it from Barlean’s as he gets orders and Barlean’s ships it directly to you. The reason is that Barlean’s only presses enough oil for the next day’s shipment. That’s why theirs is the freshest oil you can find. They recommend you order no more than a two months supply. They ship it by UPS 3-day delivery. They say that at temperatures under 360 degrees (!!) it does not go rancid. On the other hand, they say to refrigerate it whenever possible. Go figure. Personally, I have stored it in the pantry for as much as two months before opening it and had no problem with rancid oil for the last three years.

Another comparison is the 16-ounce bottle from Swanson’s Vitamins. It costs $7.99 plus $4.95 for shipping. If you bought the equivalent amount to the Barlean’s order (five 32-ounce bottles), you would pay 53 cents per ounce. Similar price, but I believe, having used both, that the Barlean’s is the better quality.

There’s the whole story, folks, except how to call Barlean’s. To order it direct from them, if you’re in the U.S., just call (800) 445-3529. What about our friends in other countries? Well, Barlean’s ships anywhere. Two things are different. The phone number to call for direct orders from outside the U.S. is (360) 384-0485. The other difference, of course, is the cost of the freight. They ship 1st or 2nd day Air to other countries, so the freight can be quite expensive ($40 to $60).

A Reliable Source For Essiac Herbs

If you’ve read my book, Cancer-Free, you know that I discussed Essiac Tea in Chapter 7, which I called “Other Treatments You Should Know About.” Why didn’t I include it as part of the standard self-treatment regimen? Good question. I mentioned several of the thousands of web sites on this subject in my book, but left you with this “Summary” of my position on it:

“I exclude Essiac tea from the ‘self-treatment’ category only because it is critical to verify the integrity of the source. Since I have no objective evidence on which to base a recommendation, I leave the decision to you and your medical professional.”

Well, thanks to Allen Wenzel, I now have considerably more information and a recommendation for you. Allen has run a supplement web site and helped cancer patients by other means since 1991. I consider him a reliable source. Take a look at his interesting page on the Essiac herbs at:

What Allen pointed out to me was the importance of using organic herbs that are not imported. Imported herbs are cheaper but undergo both pesticide treatment and irradiation, both of which destroy their potency.

I compared Allen’s prices with another source that appears reliable. At least, they grow and harvest the herbs organically and are located in Colorado. That source is run by Mike Miller and is at:

Allen sells a 16-ounce (2 cup) package of the herbs for $39.95 plus $4 shipping by 2 day Priority Mail to addresses in the U.S. Allen is located in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He ships to other countries for somewhat higher shipping costs, as does Mike Miller.

Mike Miller’s site ( has some interesting information and is a reliable source, I’m sure. However, Allen beats him on price ­ hands down. Mike sells 1/3 cup of the herbs for $12. Allen sells six times as much for about three times the price.

4-Herb vs. 8-Herb Formula

A source of confusion about the Essiac herbs for many people, including me, has been the 4-herb vs. the 8-herb formula. Both claim to be the “authentic” Nurse Caisse blend. Mike Miller effectively cleared up this mystery for me. He sells the 8-herb formula while Allen sells the 4-herb mix. For a good explanation of the difference, just go to:

Part Of The Basic Henderson Regimen?

Do I now intend to add Essiac Tea to my standard regimen for all cancer patients? Well, yes I do. Now that I have two trusted sources, at least one of which is quite inexpensive, I’m going to recommend that people get on the Allen’s Club Essiac Tea as part of their six-week trial period. It has major cleansing effects, which complement the other parts of my “Summary of the Self Treatments” in Chapter 5 of my book.

A Reader’s Story….Carol Matz

Carol Matz is not a cancer survivor herself. However, I think you’ll find her comments about the effects of chemotherapy on her patient’s blood very interesting.

“Dear Bill, I am so blown away by this newsletter I don’t know what to say, except ‘thank you!’ Just 3 days ago another one of my friends died of cancer, following her oncologist’s team of doctors protocol – she was a ‘good’ patient. She would not go outside the box and take so much as a liquid mineral supplement to replenish her body in some small way of the nutrients she was losing during her chemotherapy treatments.


I have been involved in natural health for 7 years, and I do ‘live and dried blood analysis.’ I have tracked cancer patients’ blood as they go through their chemotherapy protocols for my education. It is amazing what happens, especially in the deeper tissue layers of the body when nutrients at the very core of the body give way.


Unfortunately there is so much fear in doing anything outside what the doctors say to do among the people I have had contact with that I have never worked one-on-one with a cancer patient. Well, actually now that I say that I can remember two that I worked with, who invited me to be part of their process. They are both still alive and enjoy a high quality of life today.


One woman I was following died of liver cancer. Looking at her blood I clearly saw her liver was in serious trouble 6 months before the docs ever said anything to her about it. She was wondering if a multivitamin would help, and I remember thinking to myself – darling, you need a lot more than a multivitamin to even make a dent in this!


Anyway, thanks to you and the information you have shared here, I now have some wonderful resources that I can point people to for real help. This is so great!


I have learned a lot on my natural health journey, both through my own personal health challenges and those I work with, but I am just starting to get interested in learning about cancer and how to really deal with it effectively. I will enjoy being a student under your tutelage, and I thank you for the difference you are making to those who receive your newsletter.



Thank YOU, Carol, for sharing your experiences. Many cancer patients still think they can work out a “magic combination” treatment using the best of both the allopathic and alternative worlds. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work that way. I recently lost a friend, a Ph.D., who thought he could do it. Tragically, he “outsmarted” himself.

Be smart, people, and learn from others experiences. You MUST take charge of your own health care. It is the only way I know of to heal cancer permanently.



Here’s an interesting e-mail I got this week from Christina Arakaki in Hawaii.

“Dear Bill,


Thanks for sending your newsletter. I’m the gal that asked the first question on your most recent conference call on behalf of my sister-in-law on Oahu in Hawaii that was recently diagnosed with tongue cancer and opted not to do the glossectomy and radiation, but rather, alternative treatments. After reading your newsletter, she got very excited about the VIBE machine, and hers came to her today! I am so excited for her, and she is too. By the way, she is renting it for $1,500.00 per month as she could not afford to buy it, and there is a ‘rent to own’ option. Also, the company will give out her number to anyone in her vicinity that asks for it and suggest a donation basis for using the machine, which will help offset her costs. If one of these people that comes to her to use her machine buys one, she will get 20% off her purchase. She says they have been extremely helpful and nice to her on the phone, and will walk her through getting started with it. Believe it or not, there was not one on Oahu available to use. Apparently, one person bought one but did not get on the list to share it. There were VIBE machines available to share on Maui, Kauai and the Big Island. So now Takane’s is the first on Oahu. Thought this was good info you would like to know!


Mahalo and Aloha,
Christina Arakaki”

Thanks, Christina. If any of you on Oahu (or the other islands) want to contact Tanake about sharing her VIBE Machine, just send an e-mail to Christina and she’ll put you in contact. Her e-mail address is:

I admire Mauris Emeka. He is a cancer survivor who works to share his experience with others. Here is an e-mail I got from him about the HCG Navarro cancer test a few days ago:

“Hi Bill,


I’m so glad you posted some detailed information about the Navarro HCG urine test. I am very familiar with this test, having submitted samples of my own on three occasions. I agree that the HCG test gives early detection of any cancerous activity long before a tumor has had a chance to form. And unlike the AMAS test, this test need not be ordered by your doctor. Also, to speed up the reporting of the results, Dr Navarro will gladly e-mail the test results to the person sending the sample if they desire it. Over about a 6 month period, I sent in 3 urine samples, and during that six months I ate about 20 to 30 apricot kernels daily. Each of my test results showed less HCG activity (hence, more favorable). I believe that the apricot kernels along with my mainly plant-based diet were a factor, because I had not been eating the apricot kernels before.


Again, Bill, thanks posting the information about the HCG urine test. You’ve provided a real service.


Mauris Emeka
Port Orchard, Wash.”

Thanks, Mauris. It is particularly good to know that the Navarro clinic will provide the results by e-mail. That should speed it up tremendously.

Well, that’s about enough for now. 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.” 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 include it in the newsletter. I will certainly respect your privacy.

Don’t forget to send your friends to my web site:

Be well!
