Haven’t bought my “Cure Your Cancer” e-book yet? Only
$14.95 with an unconditional money-back guarantee. It’s

Good question. I tried that for about six months. Almost
nobody read it and followed my recommendations. Now that
I’ve been charging a little for it, hundreds of people all
over the world are taking it seriously and getting well.
Just human nature. We tend to value things we pay for

Do You (Still) Trust Your Doctor?
As those of you know who have read my book, I advocate
“co-doctoring.” In my humble opinion, it’s the only
way to get and stay well. From my personal experience,
doctors’ knowledge is quite limited. Those of you who
have researched cancer treatments for any length of time
certainly know more than your doctor about natural
treatments, diet and the true causes of and cures for
While you must co-doctor, you must also find a trusted
medical professional to monitor and oversee your cancer
treatment. This is not a “do-it-yourself” project. If
you haven’t found that wonderful medical person who is
sympathetic to your use of “alternative” (I hate that
word!) treatments, keep looking. They are out there.
Their numbers are growing daily. Appendix A in my book
has several resources you can use to locate one.
You must not trust everything you are told by a person
with M.D. after their name. You must monitor everything
that is done to your loved one in a hospital. I have
found that it is very hard to convince many people of
those two simple facts. If you have had that same frus-
trating experience, here are a few statistics that might
help you next time.
Doctors are the third leading cause of death in the United
States. In causing the death of their patients, they trail
only heart disease and cancer. There are currently more
than 250,000 deaths per year from iatrogenic causes. That
long word means “induced in a patient by a physician’s
words or actions.” Here’s the breakdown:
12,000 Unnecessary surgery
7,000 Medication errors in hospitals
20,000 Other errors in hospitals
80,000 Infections in hospitals
106,000 Non-error, negative effects of drugs
This information is from an article by Dr. Barbara Starfield
of the John Hopkins School of Hygiene and Public Health in
the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA Vol
284, July 26, 2000). If you think those numbers have gotten
smaller in the last 30 months, you’re a true, red-blooded
The accuracy of those statistics is probably better than
the “cause of death” statistics for heart disease and cancer.
As I mentioned in my book, my former wife’s death was
attributed to “heart failure” after her four-year losing bout
with cancer eight years ago. The above statistics come from
the review process that happens after every death in a hospital
to determine the true cause of each death for insurance pur-
poses and to get smarter about treatment. Unfortunately, the
hospitals seem to be losing the latter battle.
Here’s some further evidence of the fallability of our trusted
medical doctors, specifically oncologists. This is an excerpt
from Dr. Ralph Moss’ report on an Integrative Cancer Treatment
conference in Philadelphia on November 1st and 2nd this year.
Dr. Moss is discussing oxiliplatin, a chemo drug commonly used
to treat colorectal cancer.
“Fast Approval for a Mediocre Drug
Incidentally, oxaliplatin (trade name Eloxatin) received the
fastest FDA approval in memory. Yet approval was granted
without any proof that this drug, or the combination of
oxaliplatin, 5-FU and leucovorin, actually extends the lives
of cancer patients or decreases their disease-related
symptoms. Why was it approved? Because so many people are
dying of colorectal cancer and oncologists are desperate for
any treatment that offers a glimmer of hope.
The results so far have been meager. According to
centerwatch.com, one large clinical trial yielded a
‘response’ (a decrease in tumor size maintained for at least
a month) in just 9 percent of patients treated with
The average ‘time to tumor progression’ was two months
greater with the three-drug combination than in patients
treated with 5-FU and leucovorin alone. But ‘time to tumor
progression’ is not a very meaningful statistic, because it
does not necessarily correlate with an increase in overall
In the meantime, the adverse effects of oxaliplatin, and of
this combination in particular, can be terrible. They
include peripheral neuropathy, fatigue, diarrhea, nausea,
vomiting, anemia, leukopenia, neutropenia, and
thrombocytopenia (i.e., damage to the blood-making system).
Oxaliplatin may also cause anaphylactic shock-like
reactions. In addition the drug has been linked to pulmonary
toxicity, which may be fatal.
In a rational world, anyone taking this drug would get a
whole bunch of antioxidants, particularly glutathione, to
mitigate the damage. However, other than the doctors at
Jefferson University, I don’t know of many mainstream
oncologists who have embraced this approach. Instead, most
oncologists continue to warn patients away from the very
things that might help them.
What will it take to change their minds?”
As my friend Cy Bursuk says “Allopathic medicine makes its
contributions to crisis medicine (about 20% of our needs).”
For the other 80%, including all cancers, you need to get
busy and “co-doctor.”
Prostate Health — Listen Up, Men
If you are a human bean of the male persuasion, I have a
suggestion for you. Pay attention to your prostate! Next
to heart problems, prostate cancer is the leading cause of
death among men. Most of us my age (70) are coping with an
enlarged prostate (BPH).
Last week, thanks to my friend Cy Bursuk in Tucson (see my
last newsletter), I have discovered Roger Mason and his book
“The Natural Prostate Cure.” Every man should read this book.
It is the most complete explanation of the effect of hormones
and supplements on male health in general and prostate health
in particular I have ever read. In just 72 pages, he explains
why your prostate grows larger as you age. He also destroys
many of the myths about hormone therapy (for both men and
women) and the effects of various substances (including
hormones) on your prostate.
What is most interesting about this book is that the author,
uniquely among living or dead “experts,” has read EVERY study
on the subject ever published, regardless of language. He did
this by reviewing every entry in Chemical Abstracts (known as
the “chemist’s bible”). This tome contains every published
medical article of importance from every scientific journal
in the world. In a year of tough, grinding research, mostly
at the National Institute of Health Medical Library (the
largest such library in the world) in Bethesda, Maryland, he
read every one, even getting those translated from a foreign
language, where necessary. Well documented conclusions?
How much does this book cost? Nothing, if you order, as I
did, a couple of bottles of Beta Prostate. This product,
recommended by Cy, is apparently unique in its content of the
key ingredient “Beta-sitosterol” needed for prostate health,
whether or not you have detectable cancer. The product is not
expensive ($22 for a 60-capsule bottle). Each capsule contains
300 mg of beta-sitosterol, 100 mg of selenium and 15mg of zinc.
To learn more about it and order some, you can go to:
or call 1-888-779-7177.
I’m taking it and will report my progress as best I can in terms
of its effect on my symptoms, including PSA count, nocturnal
arising, etc. Like many of you, I will have trouble isolating
the effect of this substance, because of the other stuff I am
taking (artemisinin, for example). Nevertheless, I strongly
recommend it because of the convincing research and because I
trust Cy Bursuk.
My Blood Test Results – Continued…
As you know if you read my last newsletter, Cy Bursuk reviewed
my blood test from Direct Labs. His conclusions were that my
mild anemia was caused not by a lack of iron but by a shortage
of B6-B12-Folic acid. I am taking a sublingual (under the
tongue) pill daily to correct that from a source he recommended.
Check it out at:
or call them at (888) 432-4829. They are in Scottsdale, Arizona.
My iron level was quite high (212). The optimum is 100. I
had been taking an iron supplement (self-medication) because
I thought it would help the anemia. Wrong! What I need is
chelation or something to reduce this heavy metal in my blood.
More on this later.
Several elements indicated a need for “liver, thymus and spleen
support.” These included low calcium, low cholesterol (you
thought the lower the better — wrong!), high bilirubin, low
albumin/globulin ratio, low SGPT and high monocytes.
Cy recommended I work with a local nutritionist to get the
products I needed to support my hard-working organs. He knew
of Dawn Blem and her connection with Transformation Enzymes
Corp. (TEC) and recommended I discuss it with her.
Dawn and I met last week. She recommended four TEC products
which I am now taking: Protease Enzymes and Probiotic on an
empty stomach; and Digest Enzymes and Heavy Metal Detox (to
reduce the iron) with meals. I’m taking them now along with
a week of juice fasting. I feel great! Lots more energy!
Ironically, the 30-days after my incomplete blood test I got
with my physical at my doctor’s office came and went and they
hadn’t called me for the re-test my doctor requested. I
called them on the 37th day and they had me come in the next
morning for a re-test on November 5th. When I got the results,
they were even more limited than the original test (see my last
newsletter), but showed the same “out of limits” condition in
my red blood cell count and monocytes. These are the “lab
limits,” which are much more liberal than Cy Bursuk’s. The
nurse who called me about the results said the doctor told her
to tell me the test was “within limits. Test it again in two
The whole point of my recounting this experience is to impress
you with the need to take charge of your health care. You
now have no excuse (except maybe lack of money). You know
that you cannot stay healthy unless you learn the complete
truth about your own blood chemistry. Please reread my last
newsletter and check out Cy Bursuk’s web site.
Cancer and all other degenerative disease can be prevented.
They can also be cured, but it’s much more difficult than
prevention. I choose prevention. What about you?
Several of you have complained about “bounced” e-mails to
my email@example.com address. Last week, I
finally got my Internet Service Provider (ISP) to investi-
gate the problem. It seems they had not erased some “log
files” which had gobbled up all 20 megabytes of the space
I had for e-mails.
The problem has been fixed and that address is working again.
They have deleted the “log files” and increased my space to
I apologize to any of you who had a problem with this. You
may want to make a record of my alternate e-mail address,
“just in case.” It is: firstname.lastname@example.org
GOT THE SOURCE
Phil Dyer was kind enough to give me the source of the
quote in the article “Feel Better Fast!” in my last news-
letter. Phil says it came from the “Doctor Yourself
Newsletter” by Andrew Saul, PhD. He modeled it from Abram
Hoffer, M.D., “The King of Niacin.”
I promised you an article on Barbara Johnson, RN and her
unique knowledge about T-Plus and cesium chloride in treating
cancer. Barbara has been busy with a sick father. When she
has time to answer a few questions I needed to get straight,
I’ll do an article on this very interesting lady.
I will also give you some more information from Dr. Matthias
Rath and his theories about cancer and its metastasis.
On the lighter side….
Now that TV has made us all alert to the newest drugs which
cure all our known (and imagined) ills, I thought I’d bring
you up to date on the newest drugs:
First, for women:
ST. MOM’S WORT:
Plant extract that treats mom’s depression by rendering pre-
schoolers unconscious for up to six hours.
EMPTY NESTROGEN :
Highly effective medication that eliminates melancholy by
enhancing the memory of how awful they were as teenagers and
how you couldn’t wait till they moved out.
Liquid silicone for single women. Two full cups swallowed
before an evening out increases breast size, decreases
intelligence, and improves flirting.
When taken with Peptobimbo, can cause dangerously low I.Q.
causing enjoyment of country western music.
Increases life expectancy of commuters by controlling road
rage and the urge to flip off other drivers.
When administered to teenage girls, is highly effective in
improving grades, freeing up phone lines, and reducing money
spent on make-up.
Potent antiboyotic for older women. Increases resistance to
such lines as, “You make me want to be a better person … can
we go to your place now ?”
Injectable stimulant taken prior to shopping. Increases potency
and duration of spending spree.
EXTRA STRENGTH BUY-ONE-ALL:
When combined with Buyagra, can cause an indiscriminate buying
frenzy so severe the victim may even come home with a Donnie
Osmond CD or a book by Dr. Laura.
Relieves headache caused by a man who can’t remember your
birthday, anniversary or phone number.
A spray carried in a purse or wallet to be used on anyone
too eager to share their life stories with total strangers.
More effective than Excedrin in treating the, “Not now, dear,
I have a headache,” syndrome.
When administered to a husband, provides the same irritation
as ragging on him all weekend, saving the wife the time and
trouble of doing it herself.
And the best: DAMITOL:
Take 2 and the rest of the world can go to hell for up to 8
We’ll prescribe for the men next time.
In case you have wondered at the spartan simplicity of the
format of this newsletter, it has a purpose. From experi-
ence publishing several newsletters, I’ve found that this
format — simple text with lines no longer than 65 char-
acters — is the only one that will print on all e-mail
screens (maybe even WebTV) the same. Most of you will
notice that the web links in this newsletter are high-
lighted in blue. Clicking on them will open your browser
and take you to that site. If they are not highlighted
(a la AOL), you may need to “copy and paste” them into
your browser. You’ll have to do the same if you go to
my newsletter archives at my web site…”copy and paste.”
I’ll be back sometime soon with another newsletter. Be
well and send your friends to my website:
