A history of chronic constipation may be a factor in the aetiology of some cancers. In any case constipation is to be avoided. Generally laxatives or cathartics should be avoided through increasing dietary roughage.
There are no contraindications to the use of Vitamin B-17 and/or the proteolytic enzymes along with surgery, radiation, and the cyto toxins.
Combined Modalities of Treatment
All forms of radiation can in one degree or another shrink benign as well as neoplastic tumours. Many of the cancer chemotherapeutic agents are similarly capable of shrinking tumours, malignant or benign. Unfortunately any shrinkage is gained at cost of destroying somatic cells, especially the primitive repair cells. Although many benign tumours are radio-sensitive, and while the trophoblastic growths of the chorionepitheliomas and similarly highly malignant undifferentiated cells are radio-resistant, the radiation may increase the proportion of neoplastic cells in the tumour, taking the index of tumefaction a misleading and unreliable criterion of anti-neoplastic therapeutic response.
However surgery is often live-saving in cancer by correcting blockages, repairing fistulas, correcting haemorrhage, reconstructing plastic damage, and the like.
If surgery can remove a tumour completely, as in early non-metastatic cancer of the uterus, it may conserve the health and life of the patient. The same applies to the use of surgery in pre-neoplastic hyperplasias, and polyps, papillomata, skin lesions, leukoplakia, senile keratoses, etc. Where rational surgery is used, B-17 and proteolytic enzyme therapy is not contra-indicated in any way, and is indicated even before surgery.
Since pulmonary neoplasms appear to be especially responsive to the use of Vitamin B-17 and proteolytic enzymes, such an approach is the preferred method of treatment.
Except for lesions in or close to the skin, radiation or the radiomimetic cytotoxins are to be avoided because of their highly immune suppressive and other destructive effects.
Researches on the effect of various kinds and sources of light point to the use of artificial illumination as increasing the growth rate of tumours in animals, and the possible stimulation of existing cancer in humans. Patients should avoid constant artificial lighting except full spectrum fluorescent lights, and be out of doors in the sunlight several hours every day without glasses.
Life span of test animals with tumours, and apparently human cancer patients also seems to be increased significantly by utilising the full spectrum light source of sunlight not filtered by window glass, auto windshield glass, clear eyeglasses, tinted (dark) glasses, or contact lenses. (The ultraviolet range is especially beneficial but is filtered out by ordinary glass and plastics.)
1) Do not smoke or remain in a room
with a smoker.
The following dietary regime is usually strictly followed for the first three or four months of therapy, and may be gradually relaxed following improvement:
The diet should be based almost exclusively upon fresh fruits and vegetables and/or their fresh juices. Food from the animal kingdom should be limited to the frequent use of fresh fish, and the occasional use of poultry cooked without the addition of fat or salt. Be careful to obtain poultry that has not been treated with hormones and is free from viral and bacterial infection. The patient should memorise the following dietary formula:
Tea and coffee without any sweeteners or honey or dairy products may be used moderately, although their avoidance is preferred.
Herbal teas may be used as substitute. Tobacco is strictly to be avoided. The average person eats his own weight in sugar every year. Sweeteners should never be added to any food. The avoidance of sugar and products containing sugar is essential.
Moderate vitamin and mineral supplementation is advised. The supplements used must include all vitamins and all nutritional minerals.
Though the fruit and vegetable diet should supply a substantial quantity of fibre or indigestible cellulose, it may be advisable in many cases to augment the fibre content of the diet by adding 2 to 4 tablespoonsful of 100% All Bran each day. This may be taken in fruit or vegetable juices or mixed with the food.
Specific foods to which the patient is sensitive are to be avoided, and the addition of bran is to be made with the consent of the physician or nutritional advisor.
Our biological common-sense impels us to the insistence upon fresh, raw and uncooked fruits and vegetables as well as their juices for all dietary purposes in general, but impellingly so for the cancer victim.
