Some people have been cured of their cancer by diet alone. It seems that the body of these people were only slightly deficient in dealing with cancer. Had this not been the case, diet alone would not have worked. Diet is the least effective alternative cancer treatment when used by itself. Taking real alternative treatments such as the ones in the Comparison table combined with diet, hypnosis and emotional work* is much more effective.
Diet considerations on this page are as follows:
- General diet also good for cancer prevention.
- Sweeteners a comparison table.
- Regenerative teas and food brilliant herbs and enzymes.
- Alkalizing Diet to raise your pH.
- Budwig diet (flaxseed oil and cottage cheese).
- Avoid Soy avoiding soy is difficult because it is in almost all processed food.
In August 2004 the results of a study connecting carbohydrate consumption and cancer were released. Researchers interviewed 1,866 women aged 20 to 75 in Mexico City about their diets and found that breast cancer risk rose with carbohydrate consumption. Those who ate the most carbohydrates had more than twice the risk of breast cancer than those who ate the least amount of carbohydrates. The increased risk of breast cancer was seen both in premenopausal and postmenopausal women.
Help Your Pancreas
The Trophoblast Theory of Cancer* is the longest surviving theory of cancer. It states that cancer is the failure of the pancreas to stop fast growing trophoblast cells used in chronic healing. If you were to send these healing cells to a lab, they would tell you that they were cancer. The pancreas is the only thing in our bodies that can kill them, not the immune system. The following support the pancreas (click the link to drop down and read the details):
- Slim slows down the release of food into the intestines to keep insulin production low.
- Pancreatic Antioxidant
- Pancreatic enzymes
The only serious pancreas supporting supplement on the market that is also a cholesterol and triglycerides lowering agent is called Slim and is marketed as a diet plan that helps regulate blood sugar. To understand how the pancreas works too long producing too much insulin watch this video about Slim**. It is directed towards weight loss, but you should be able to see how Slim reduces the work load on the pancreas:
Normally, insulin production by the pancreas remains high after a glucose (blood sugar) spike (see graphic on the right). Slim slows down the release of glucose preventing the spike which allows the pancreas to shut down insulin production. During insulin production shutdown, the pancreas can increase its most important function. By now, you should know what that is.

Foods that Help Your Pancreas
Foods that contain nitrilosides which contains B17 also called Laetrile have been removed from our diet. B17 helps your pancreas eliminate the fast growing healing cells after they have served their purpose. For more information on this process, see the the Trophoblast Theory of Cancer**. The following foods contain B17:
- Millet the grain that wheat replaced.
- Sorghum cane the sweetener that sugar cane replaced.
- Mong beans used to make noodles (bean thread) you can purchase them in Asian food stores.
- Linseed (Flaxseed)
Although this is a very hopeful help for the pancreas, it should not be taken if you are taking Cantron, Paw Paw or Protocel because of the alpha Lipoic Acid. You can order this product from Eldon or you can compound it yourself by taking these three pills once a day:
BioSil – a choline-stabilized orthosilicic acid (ch-OSA) which is both bioavailable and stable (does not polymerize into forms that the body cannot absorb).
What people order:
Cayenne Extra Hot 315 mg – capsules 100 count
- Alpha Lipoic Acid, Jarrow 100 mg - this conflicts with Cantron. Protocel, and Paw Paw.
Organs and Minerals
Persons with cancers in these organs are taking these minerals:
Adrenals - Sodium
Bone - Calcium
Bladder - Silicon
Brain - Phosphorus
Breasts - Manganese
Colon - Magnesium
Esophagus - Silicon
Kidney - Iron
Leukemia - Calcium
Liver - Iron
Lungs - Manganese
Lymph Nodes- Magnesium
Pancreas – Silicon
Prostate – Zinc
Sarcoma – Calcium
Skin – Silicon
Small Intestines – Magnesium
Spleen – Iron
Stomach – Sodium
Testes – Calcium
Thymus – Magnesium
Uterus – Silicon
Only cancer cells have an enzyme called beagle. When beta-glucosidase comes in contact with nitrilosides, benzaldehyde and hydrogen cyanide are released from the beta-glucosidase. Hydrogen cyanide has some toxic effect, but benzaldehyde is extremely toxic to cancer cells. Normal cells contain the enzyme rhodanese, which converts the nitrilosides into food.
There few nitrilosides in the modern diet. Millet, which is very high in nitrilosides, used to be the staple grain. We went from millet to wheat, which contains no nitrilosides. Our cattle used to graze and ear large quantities of grasses, which are high in nitrilosides. Now we grain-feed our cattle. There are no nitrilosides in the grain. So the second line of defense against cancer has disappeared. Fortunately, millet is still available as a whole grain and as a flour. The following recipe uses both.
Avoid All Sugar
The rate of cancer dramatically increased shortly after sugar cane was discovered and became popular. Sugar is the ultimate carbohydrate. It is turned into blood sugar faster than any other food and puts a tremendous strain on the pancreas whose main job is to control blood sugar level. Fruit has a lot of sugar.
Most sweeteners are better for you than sugar with the exception of aspartame (Equal) and Saccharin. These sweeteners are not as delicious as sugar, but they do work very well of some foods. For example, stevia goes very well with sour drinks like cranberry and lemon. We have found the the best way to sweeten things is to combine sweeteners. The following table lists sweeteners from best to worst.
|Stevia||Stevia plant||The most healthy sweetener is stevia. Stevia only works well with certain foods and drinks. The best tasting stevia we have found is Stevia Liquid Extract from NOW Foods** (click to order from iHealthTree who have a very good price).|
|Xylitol||Plants such as Birch trees, corn cobs||Xylitol is not only a sugar free sweetener, it is also anti-candida, xylitolnow.com** has a good price on bulk xylitol. Works best when mixed with other sweeteners such as stevia, agave, and real sugar.|
|Honey||Bees||Honey has a glycemic index of 55 compared with that of table sugar at 61 making it a better choice than sugar.|
|Sugar||Sucralose is sold as Splenda and other brand names usually in yellow packets. The evidence against it is weak such as claims that it has a very high glycemic index. Since it has almost no calories, having a high glycemic index is not significant.|
|Agave||Agave plant||Is fructose, a real sugar but Agave has a lower glycemic index than other fructose. It is also anti-candida. Can be found in supermarkets. As its popularity has risen various forms and process methods have developed until it is difficult to tell if you are getting a good product.|
|Glycerin||Plant||Not the best tasting sweetener, but can be used with other sweeteners to add body to sweetness. Is very anti-candida. Can be found in most health food stores.|
|Saccharin||Chemical||This is one of the oldest artificial sweeteners on the market and is seen in pink packets everywhere. Probable carcinogen.|
|Aspartame||Chemicals||Sold as Equal and other brand names, usually in a blue packet. Aspartame is the highest side effect compound reported to the FDA. The fact the the FDA has not banned it is the best example of why the FDA should itself be disbanded.|
For most of history, man ate few grains and these grains tended to be whole grains. Whole grains have less carbohydrates than milled grains. Today's wheat, even whole wheat, has many more carbohydrates that the grains of old which makes it taste sweeter. Brown rice and quinoa are much better grains. The way to reduce grains without cutting them out all together is to use them on a salad as a garnish. A couple of tablespoons on a salad increases the apparent substance of the salad.
Avoid Corn and Reduce the Carbohydrate Load on Your Pancreas
High-fructose corn syrup blocks the function in our body that turns off our appetite after we eat enough food. Food manufacturers love to put this in their food because it makes people eat much more. Some people notice that corn chips make them gain weight inordinately. To learn if avoiding corn would be an easy weight loss program for you, perform this simple experiment: For one week, do not eat anything that contains corn in any form including corn syrup which is even in many drinks. After that one week, notice if you are more satisfied with less food.
The annual per capita consumption of high-fructose corn syrup, the worst of the corn products, has skyrocketed from less than one pound in 1970 to 60.9 pounds in 2003 (USDA statistics).
Cancer Cells and Glucose
Cancer cells use glucose (blood sugar) to live and grow. They require eight times more glucose than a normal cell. Therefore, it is important to avoid high levels of glucose in your blood. The best way to do that is to avoid refined sugar. The more green leafy vegetables you can eat the better.
All food turns into glucose in your blood. The import consideration is glucose level. If you drink fruit juice on an empty stomach, glucose jumps to a high level and cancer cells get a boost. If you spread out the fruit over time and have other foods such as vegetables or meat between servings (or half servings) of fruit, glucose will remain an a more steady level. If you eat the whole fruit instead of the juice, glucose levels rise a bit more slowly.
Cancer cells give off lactic acid and thrive in an acidic environment. Lactic acid is also produced by your muscles when you exercise vigorously. It is what makes you feel tired and ache. That is why most cancer patients feel so tired.
The glycemic index of food tells how fast your blood sugar will increase. Foods that increase blood sugar quickly are suspected of encouraging the growth of cancer.

The phytic acid in soy prevents the body from absorbing minerals. This results in degraded nutrition. A cancer patient must the best nutrition in order to support the body's anti-cancer functions.
Soy is rich in flavonoids, which contain components that resemble estrogen. If you have a hormone-dependent tumor, such as a breast or prostate malignancy, flavonoid-rich foods exacerbates these conditions. Green and black tea are also high in flavonoids.
There is an 18% higher incidence of autoimmune thyroid disease in infants who are fed soy formula. Soy also damages your immune system as reported in the 1975 Canadian Journal of Biochemistry, “Soybean inhibits the production of trypsin. Trypsin is an enzyme produced by the pancreas to:
- Digesting protein
- Kill cancer cells
- Produce antibodies
So a trypsin inhibitor will irritate your pancreas, stressing it to produce hormones when it can’t, leading to decreased oxygenation from the irritation. Soy prevents the protein you eat from being fully utilized and digested. Your immune system can’t get fueled with proper antibodies and lymphocytes — a double whammy. Therefore, soy is cancer-causing.
Insulin and Cancer
Some cancer cells have 10 or 20 times as many insulin receptors on their surfaces as do normal cells. They may use insulin to enhance their growth and increase their absorption of glucose. Eating sugar stimulates the body to make more insulin.
MSG and Insulin
Recent studies have shown that glutamate (MSG and other excitotoxins) can powerfully stimulate the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas. Just because a food label states "No Added MSG" the food can still have MSG, but it is called: hydrolyzed protein, natural flavor, glutamic acid, and a host of other names.
The term "natural flavors can be misleading as well, and can contain anywhere from 12% to 33% MSG or none at all. The only way to know for sure if a product contains MSG is to write the manufacturer and continue to check back with them frequently because oftentimes, manufacturers will change ingredients in their products." From Migraine Headaches and Monosodium Glutamate** by Lauren Harned, Vanderbuit University student.
Reducing the amount of trans fats and partially hydrogenated oils in your diet can help prevent cancer. These oils invade cell walls and destroy the electrical charge of the cell. Without the charge, our cells have difficulty oxygenating. Without oxygen, our cells can only replicate anaerobically as in tumors.
Nutritionally aware people eat high protein foods especially slow digesting meat only during breakfast and lunch. When this is strictly observed the pancreatic enzymes, used in digestion of protein, are used for only about 6 hours. This leaves 18 hours for production of pancreatic enzymes to digest cancer tissue.
Any of the anti-cancer diets benefit from drinking large amounts of non-chlorinated water, but they do even better when drinking the teas listed below.
Avoid All of These
Top 20 Food Additives to Avoid These food additives can produce the type of toxins that become a healing site that put strain on the pancreas.
|If you know a bit about Chinese medicine, you know that it can taste awful, but can work miracles where other medicines fail. The awful taste usually comes from the leaves of the herbs, but not necessarily from the compounds and enzymes that your body needs. Finally a company, Sunrider has figured out how to remove the most powerful healing properties of these herbs and make them into teas and foods without that terrible taste. You can have the benefits of these powerful herbs and a great taste when you add stevia a sweet herb.|
Sunrider makes two teas, Calli and Fortune Delight that when drunk on a daily basis performs a gentle and continues detox. It does this through brilliant nutrition (herbs and enzymes) that supports the bodies natural detox functions. These teas are delicious hot or cold when combined with their stevia. I never liked the idea of most detoxes because as soon as you finish the detox, more toxins start to buildup. I drink these Sunrider teas all day every day; it is my new water.
I live in a community of healers. Every healer who has tasted this tea has the same reaction; their eyes light up and they want more. Sunrider teas and foods* are a bit expensive, but a good discount* is available and one Calli tea bag makes 32 ounces of tea. So maybe it is not expensive.
The Self Awareness Formula is a test you take online followed by a one hour interview in which the keys to nourishing your body's organ systems will be determined. The intention is to bring the body back "online," to empower it to function without intervention and to prevent future imbalances. You will learn the details of the foods and practices to both avoid and to increase, the benefits of the various foods to your particular needs as well as the expectations you can have as the body begins to come into balance. You will also be advised on whole food concentrates which utilize the Five Element Law, a 5000 year old system for balancing the body and is an easy, proven system. The Self Awareness Formula and the suggestions made are to be used in conjunction with your cancer plan. If it is true "you are what you eat," the Self Awareness Formula answers the question on how to best feed your body at the cellular level to be healthy. Self Awareness Formula**
The theory behind this diet is that a more alkaline body makes it difficult for tumors to grow. Most people are acidic due to our modern diet, but if you have real good discipline you can make your body alkaline. You can download this MS Word file of an acid/alkaline food list developed from the alkaline/acid food lists on The Wolfe Clinic** and Essense-of-life** web sites. It is not the acid or alkaline quality of the food, but our bodies reaction to that food that has an acidifying or alkalizing effect on our bodies. For example, a lemon is very acidic, but it has an alkalizing effect on our body when we eat it. Cancer cells make your body even more acidic as they produce lactic acid.
There are two recommended methods to get an indication of one's tissue pH, saliva and urine. Urine responds more quickly to what you eat and varies through the day more than saliva. The pH of the saliva should be slightly more alkaline than urine pH.
pH Measurement Method and Time
Urine pH first thing in the morning
6.0 to 6.4
Urine pH in the evening
6.4 to 6.8
Saliva pH in mid afternoon
6.6 to 7.0
To collect urine, use a cup to collect about two ounces of “mid stream” urine without stopping the urine flow during collection.
To determine your pH from saliva, (from Alkalize for Health**):
1. Two or more hours after eating lunch, fill your mouth with saliva and then swallow it.
2. Repeat step 1 to ensure that the saliva is clean.
3. The third time, put some of your saliva onto pH paper.
You need narrow range pH paper such as pH 5.5 to 8. One source is on the Essense-of-life web site, pH Litmus Test Paper** page.
Calcium and pH
Some people are not able to increase their pH more than a couple of tens. This is often due to the body trying to remain acidic in order to extract calcium from food. Many people are calcium deficient. It can be very difficult for the body to assimilate calcium because a large collection of minerals must be taken at the same time. There is only one calcium formula that seems to have the right combination.
Talks with both the Protocel chemist and the Cantron people indicate that Cantron and Protocel increase the pH of the inside of our cells. This cellular pH increase suggests an explanation for the fact that Cantron and Protocel do not work on everyone who tries them. These people may have bodies that are too acidic for Cantron or Protocel to make this change.
By combining high quality chelated calcium and marine plankton you will have every trace mineral needed by your body to rebuild and bring the pH into a healthy range.
Can Remove Parasites, Bacteria, and Toxins
The Calcium and marine plankton products were actually developed to remove energy blocks in the brain stem. This allows messages from the temporal lobes of the brain to travel down to the rest of the body. This improves the function of the pancreas, adrenals, and many of the detoxifying functions of the body. For this reason people taking this formula often rid their bodies of parasites, bacteria, and toxins.
Ordering Calcium and Marine Plankton
You can order Eldon's plain calcium and calcium/plankton formulas by first contacting him via email to obtain the amount you need: Click here to email Eldon.
Eldon is using very high quality ingredients: Avalon Advanced Nutrition chelated calcium which is used by Solgar for their chelated calcium and the very best marine plankton he could find. The marine plankton costs $880 a pound, but still Eldon is keeping his cost down to $35 for a 1 month supply of the calcuim/plankton formula. It comes in capsul form.
People are taking two 300 mg chelated calcium capsules with each meal, but only after clearing the body by drinking the lemon juice drink (see below). There are two methods of purchasing the plain chelated calcium:
- Order two 90 pill bottles from Eldon for $29 each
- Order one 90 pill bottle from Eldon for $29 each and purchase a bottle of Solgar Chelated Calcium. Solgar is only 50% chelated calcium, but it is the same high quality chelated calcium used by Eldon. There is some cost saving, 250 tablets of 1000 mg each is only $29 from Vitamin Shoppe.
People take three of Eldon's calcium at one meal and then one of the Solgar 1000 mg pills at the next.
Calcium Protocol for Increasing pH
The following protocol has been used by people who want to take the higher (three times a day) level of calcium they got their pH higher faster.
We found that people drinking lemon juice developed an extremely positive effect on the ability of their bodies to accept calcium. The following protocol has been used by a number of successful cancer patients to raise their pH and support the pancreas.
First Three Days
Each day, these people drank throughout the day, one half gallon of distilled water plus:
- The juice of one fresh lemon
- The juice of two oranges, or eight ounces of store brought orange juice. You can also use eight ounces of grapefruit juice or pineapple juice. People taking Cantron, Protocel, or Paw Paw avoided this orange juice, grapefruit juice or pineapple juice due to its vitamin C level.
The best way is to take the lemon juice is 4 ounces at a time starting in the morning. You can separate the drinks by 30 minutes to an hour - this is not critical at all. Mornings are better because the lemon juice can interfere with sleep.
Reduced caloric diet: no red meat smaller portions of grain.
After Three Days
They started taking two chelated calcium pills at each meal. Too much calcium will make you feel tired. People who started feeling tire after increasing their calcium intake, reduce their calcium.
After Another Four Days
People are also starting pancreas support with Goldenseal at meal time: 500 mg. Best price found was $26 for the high quality Nature’s Sunshine 100 pills (three month supply):
After calcium reserves have been built up, indicated by a leveling off of pH, people cut back to a maintenance dosage of chelated calcium, which is one pill per day.
There is 0.03 ug of selenium in a daily dose of Eldon’s marine plankton formula. The maximum daily allowed level of selenium while taking Cantron, Paw Paw, or Protocel is 30 ug. Therefore, the amount of selenium is well below the allowed dose.
Eldon’s Pancreatic Elixir
The more eclectic people add Eldon’s pancreatic elixir which has an energetic effect on the pancreas using ORMS the foundation of alchemical practices. To order contact EldonBearden@yahoo.com .
Infection is the most common problem of the human condition. In order to feel energized and allow your body to perform at optimal levels people are addressing their infection as well as their brain/body communication. There are many immune boosting products on the market. Below are just a few that have given many people renewed energy (a sure sign that your infection has been reduced):
- Wheat grass - despite claims of various health enthusiasts that wheat grass juice is the only way to go, the pills are also effective and much easier to take.
- Caprylic acid
- Any of the mushroom formulas such as Beta Glucan, MGN-3, ACHH (the one I take). These links go to pages on my web site. I don't sell or profit from the sales of these formulas, but there is lots of info already there including manufacturer contacts so I include my links.
People who are too alkaline don't have enough stomach acid to digest calcium and will have calcium out of solution in their body. This makes pH an essential part of testing for mineral levels if a person is doing such testing as hair analysis.
Mineral deficiencies can cause all kinds of disease. The following is a list of organs that depend on specific minerals. Persons with cancers in these organs are able to strengthen the organ by taking these minerals. This list was developed by Eldon Bearden muscle tester extraordinary.
Adrenals – Sodium
Bone – Calcium
Brain – Phosphorus
Breasts – Manganese
Colon – Magnesium
Esophagus – Silicon
Kidney – Iron
Leukemia – Calcium
Liver – Iron
Lungs – Manganese
Lymph Nodes– Magnesium
Pancreas – Silicon
Prostate – Zinc
Sarcoma – Calcium
Skin – Silicon
Small Intestines – Magnesium
Spleen – Iron
Stomach – Sodium
Testes – Calcium
Thymus – Magnesium
Uterus – Silicon
If you look at the list of organs and their corresponding minerals above, you will notice that silicon is listed more than any other mineral. The problem with silicon is that it is not biologically available. With the introduction of ch-OSA a more absorbable form of silicon, BioSil was possible.

Hair testing can tell you many things about the direction you may want to proceed such as:
- Mineral deficiencies.
- The effect of increasing your calcium - usually but not always a good step to take
- Toxic load.
- Metabolic type and how different minerals deficiencies or excesses effect you.
The test needs a tablespoon of hair. Testing cannot be performed on hair that has been permed, dyed or bleached in the past two months. Also, shampoos with dyes, colorings or special chemicals must be discontinued for three days prior to obtaining the hair sample.
Hair Test Comparison
A hair mineral analysis can show many easy to solve health problems such as:
- Calcium magnesium ratio effects:
- Blood sugar problems such as hypoglycemia
- Muscle tone problems
- A magnesium and/or potassium deficiency may be cause heart palpitations.
- See below for a list of potassium deficiencies.
Many people are getting hair analysis to determine mineral levels, however it is common to find calcium which is out of solution in a hair analysis. Excess calcium can show up in hair if the person is not digesting dairy or is taking a poor quality calcium product. However, that is only a couple of the things that you can learn from hair analysis. See below the table for details regarding minerals and your pancreas, the most important gland for cancer patients.
Test Name and Link
|Forrest Hair Mineral Analysis**||$200||Includes a unique 15 to 20 page report based on your results. Mineral reults are put in a graph. Phone a 15 minute consultation.|
|ARL Tissue Mineral Analysis**||$125||Includes a phone consultation. Tests: mineral balance, potential heavy metal toxic load, and metabolic indicators.|

Another Alkalizing Supplement
The supplement that people use to obtain a higher pH is Cesium Chloride**a. This link goes to the top or our Cesium Chloride page which contains many details about Cesium Chloride. You can also go to the Comparison Table to see how Cesium Chloride compares to other alternative cancer treatments.
WARNING (from Essense-of-life) - People who use an alkalizing diet often take cesium chloride to further increase alkalizing of their body. The our Cesium Chloride* page. Cesium chloride can deplete your body of potassium. Many of these people take potassium supplements while taking cesium chloride. Some people eat bananas to increase their potassium intake. One medium banana has about 450 mg. The amount of potassium you need may vary, but athletes who sweat a lot need up to 4000 mg a day of potassium. This is a lot of potassium so you may want to consider purchasing the liquid form** distributed by Essense-of-life which seems to be the highest concentration available.
Potassium deficiency causes:
- Mental confusion
- Heart disturbances
Potassium is used in the body for:
- Water balance and distribution
- Acid-base balance
- Muscle and nerve cell function
- Heart function
- Kidney and adrenal function
Another web site with alkalizing information and products that are available in the United Kingdom (Great Britain) is Energize for Life.
This diet was developed by Dr. Johanna Budwig who was nominated for the noble Prize sixth times. The diet is intended as a preventative as well as an alternative cancer treatment. The diet consists of thoroughly blend the following until there is no standing oil:
- 1 cup cottage cheese
- 2-5 tablespoons of flaxseed oil (also written flax seed oil)
- A little cayenne
- Water or milk to make it blend better.
After blending, stir in 1-3 tablespoons of freshly ground flaxseed. Add berries if you wish. Do not heat.
This is just the beginning of the Budwig diet, the best place to learn the rest of the protocol is to purchase the Budwig diet plan that is available in Dr Budwig's cook book, "The Oil Protein Diet Cook Book" You can use this link to purchase the book on Amazon.
Capsules Soon to be Available
Bodygenex has developed a product that has the same effect as the Budwig diet but it is in pill form and calls it Procella. To order the Procella capsules go to the Biogenex website at http://www.bodygenex.com
Socializing and Food
It is a tragedy that our social activities are centered on food instead of sports or games. If you can change from sedentary social activities to active social activities, you will achieve a major accomplishment for yourself and your friends. Try this for a new motto: first we play, then we eat, then we play.
