Alternative Cancer Treatments

That Also Shrink Tumors


How Important is Shrinking Tumors?

In many cases, it is critical to the survival of a cancer patient to shrink their tumors. However, in many other cases it is not life-threatening to leave a tumor alone and concentrate on stopping the spreading of the cancer. "Modern medicine," with its firm grasp of the art of making huge amounts of profits while their patients die, has totally brainwashed the public into thinking that the size of every tumor is important in a cancer treatment. In some cases it is. However, orthodox medicine frequently shrinks tumors which are irrelevant to the survival of the patient. Here is a quote by Dr. Philip Binzel, M.D.:
  • "When a patient is found to have a tumor, the only thing the doctor discusses with that patient is what he intends to do about the tumor. If a patient with a tumor is receiving radiation or chemotherapy, the only question that is asked is, "How is the tumor doing?" No one ever asks how the patient is doing. In my medical training, I remember well seeing patients who were getting radiation and/or chemotherapy. The tumor would get smaller and smaller, but the patient would be getting sicker and sicker. At autopsy we would hear, "Isn't that marvelous! The tumor is gone!" Yes, it was, but so was the patient. How many millions of times are we going to have to repeat these scenarios before we realize that we are treating the wrong thing?

    In primary cancer, with only a few exceptions, the tumor is neither health-endangering nor life-threatening.I am going to repeat that statement. In primary cancer, with few exceptions, the tumor is neither health-endangering nor life-threatening. What is health-endangering and life-threatening is the spread of that disease through the rest of the body.

    There is nothing in surgery that will prevent the spread of cancer. There is nothing in radiation that will prevent the spread of the disease. There is nothing in chemotherapythat will prevent the spread of the disease. How do we know? Just look at the statistics! There is a statistic known as "survival time." Survival time is defined as that interval of time between when the diagnosis of cancer is first made in a given patient and when that patient dies from his disease.

    In the past fifty years, tremendous progress has been made in the early diagnosis of cancer. In that period of time, tremendous progress had been made in the surgical ability to remove tumors. Tremendous progress has been made in the use of radiation and chemotherapy in their ability to shrink or destroy tumors. But, the survival time of the cancer patient today is no greater than it was fifty years ago. What does this mean? It obviously means that we are treating the wrong thing!"

While there are some alternative cancer treatments that do shrink tumors, and this article is about those products, the focus on alternative cancer treatments is generally on targeting and killing cancer cells, or reverting cancer cells into becoming normal cells. Shrinking tumors is generally secondary to alternative cancer treatments. But again, in some cases the tumor is life-threatening.

When the Size of the Tumor is Critical

In some cases the tumor is pressing on a vital organ, is causing pain, is obstructing the flow of fluids, or for some other reason needs to be eliminated from the body. This type of condition is frequently solved with surgery because of the urgency of the situation.

It is important to understand that there is no alternative cancer treatment that is guaranteed to shrink tumors significantly in a short amount of time. Tumors are very complex and there is nothing that will work every time.

Not all alternative cancer treatments that shrink tumors are listed here, but the major treatments that have a history of shrinking tumors are listed here.

When the size of a tumor is critical, it can be assumed you do not want to swell the tumor any more than it has already swollen. Most alternative cancer treatments will cause a tumor to swell temporarily, then it may start to shrink.

Cesium Chloride / DMSO Protocol

Cesium Chloride - For Those Not On Chemotherapy

If the tumor is not life threatening, should it swell temporarily (e.g. for a couple of weeks), the Cesium Chloride / DMSO Protocol is a good choice. This is one of the best and fastest treatments to shrink tumors. Tumor masses can can start to shrink within two weeks. However, before the tumor starts to shrink, as with most alternative cancer treatments that shrink tumors, the tumor will actually get larger for a short time (unless the patient is on chemotherapy). Thus, it must be known whether temporary swelling will put the cancer patient at risk.

Cesium Chloride - For Those On Chemotherapy

If the cancer patient is currently on chemotherapy, the combination of the Cesium Chloride / DMSO Protocol, combined with chemotherapy, is a very good choice. Cesium chloride and chemotherapy seem to be synergistic and do not cause significant swelling, not even temporary swelling.

Here is the article on this protocol.
Cesium Chloride / DMSO Protocol

Cellect-Budwig Protocol

The Cellect-Budwig Protocol contains several items which are known to shrink tumors.

Perhaps foremost amoung these items is the Budwig Diet, which consists of converting oil soluble omega 3 into water soluble omega 3. This treatment is also part of the Bill Henderson Protocol, which will be mentioned in a moment.

Dr. Johanna Budwig claimed that tumors were created specifically because of a lack of electron-rich molecules on the surface of cell walls. Her protocol was excellent at shrinking tumors quickly.

In addition to the Budwig Diet, the product Cellect can also shrink tumors. The Budwig Diet and Cellect are very synergistic. Cellect contains, among many other products, shark cartilage, which is known to shrink tumors.

Another part of the Cellect-Budwig protocol is vegetable juicing. Heavy vegetable juicing, especially carrot juice, beet juice, cabbage juice, brocolli juice and other anti-cancer juices, are known to help shrink tumors.

Laetrile is another natural product known to help shrink tumores. Vitamin B17, laetrile, and amygdalin are all names for the same natural molecule. Apricot seeds are very high in laetrile.

This protocol will notcause tumors to swell prior to shrinking.

Here is a link to the Cellect-Budwig protocol:

Bill Henderson Protocol

The Bill Henderson Protocol is also a protocol which includes the Budwig Diet and it also does not cause any inflammation or swelling of tumors. It is based on the Johanna Budwig Diet of cottage cheese and flaxseed oil. The treatment also includes several other supplements and a special diet.

However, since the Bill Henderson Protocol is not specifically designed to shrink tumors, and since by definition, the patient is already in serious trouble, there are things that should be added to the Bill Henderson Protocol when shrinking tumors is important (adult dosages):
1) 10 grams of MSM a day to reduce swelling (must build-up to this dose):

2) Shark cartilage. A person should take three 750 mg. pills a day. See:
One of many vendors

3) Heavy vegetable juicing, especially carrot juice, beet juice, cabbage juice, brocolli juice and other anti-cancer juices. See:
Anti-Cancer Vegetable Juices

Zeolites are specific types of minerals which come from volcanos. They are best known as chelating molecules, especially for mercury and other heavy minerals. But it turns out that they are also very good at shrinking tumors.

  • For centuries, the powdered forms of specific zeolites have been used as traditional remedies throughout Asia to promote overall health and well being. The story of the "volcanic rocks" has been passed down from generation-to-generation as more and more people have experienced its life-changing benefits.

    Zeolites are natural volcanic minerals with an unique, complex crystalline structure. It's honeycomb framework of cavities and channels (like cages) works at the cellular level trapping heavy metals and toxins. In fact, because it is one of the few negatively charged minerals in nature, zeolites act as magnets drawing toxins to it, capturing them in its cage and removing them from the body."


Of interest is that they have been shown in some cases to shrink tumors very quickly. There is not enough evidence to depend on them exclusively to shrink tumors, but they are so simple to take that I would strongly recommend they be added to any of the other treatments that shrink tumors. Here are two vendors:

AIS MAX For Life

This is the only alternative cancer treatment I have ever seen with curcumin in it. There is anecdotal evidence this product does shrink tumors.

Curcumin is actually a wonder substance against cancer. Big Pharma has tried to synthesize this natural molecule, which works quite well by itself, thank you.

Because the dosage of curcumin in this product is somewhat lower than I would like, it would be good to use curcumin spice on your foods whenever appropriate while using this product and as long as you have cancer.

As with zeolites, the evidence is not strong enough that it shrinks tumors (i.e. there is no "cure rate") that it should be used by itself.

Here is the vendor:

Sweet Wormwood Herb

A third product (there is no article for this product on this website) that may also shrink tumors very quickly is the sweet wormwood herb. This is generally not used as a stand-alone treatment, however, it may be very effective at shrinking tumors. The vendor with the best reputation for sweet wormwood is Artemisinin:

Other Treatments That Have Had Some Success Shrinking Tumors

Klemens Electronic Magnetic Pulser

The Klemens Electronic Magnetic Pulser, out of Australia, is a superb electromedicine treatment. It does not work in the same way as the Bob Beck Magentic Pulser (which was designed for elimiating microbes), rather it is more likely to supercharge the cells.

Because it has a much higher mgauss rating that the Sota Instruments Magnatic Pulser, it can, in some cases, have a dramatic effect on shrinking tumors. At maximum power it can pulse 15 times a second.

Here is the manufacturer:
Super Pulser

Essaic Tea (Using herbs that have NOT been dehydrated)

Essaic Tea is one of the foremost alternative cancer treatments known to shrink tumors. As with all herb teas, however, its ability to work is heavily dependenton the quality of the growing, processing and storage of the herbs. Herbs that have been dehydrated are rarely of much use.

  • "After word of Caisse's [the founder of Essiac Tea] impressive results spread to the United States, a leading diagnostician in Chicago introduced her to Dr. John Wolfer, director of the tumor clinic at Northwestern University Medical School. In 1937, Wolfer arranged for Rene to treat thirty terminal cancer patients under the direction of five doctors. Rene commuted across the border to Chicago, carrying her bottles of freshly prepared herbal brew. After supervising one and a half years of Essiac therapy, the Chicago doctors concluded that the herbal mixture prolonged life, shrank tumors, and relieved pain. "
Carrot Juice and Raw Food Diet

Vitamin A has been shown in studies to shrink the size of tumors. The best way to take Vitamin A is with carrot juice:

  • "Cancer growths and sores appear in practically every part of the body and take a long time to heal. Since the body creates these conditions, it is essential to eliminate the food which feeds their development. From his long experience, Dr. Earp-Thomas was fully convinced that when cooked food was eaten it permitted tumors and growths to build within the body. Yet when living food was substituted, these tumors and growths immediately began to shrink for lack of nourishment. The most thrilling experience I can recall was to see cancer cells taken from a human body and thriving on cooked food but unable to survive on that same food when it was uncooked."
  • "There are numerous reports/claims that a diet consisting almost entirely of a diversity of vegetables can cause cancer tumors to shrink or even vanish. If these reports are correct, they make sense in the context of the theory that is presented here. I am postulating anaerobic metabolism and thus cancer can be caused by the blockage of the aerobic process at any point in the Kreb's cycle or the respiratory chain. There are numerous chemical steps that are involved in sequence and if any of them is blocked you have the potential of arresting the entire aerobic process. Each of these steps are catalyzed by specific enzymes and regulated by other enzymes. If any of these are missing, aerobic metabolism could stop."
Ellagic Acid
  • "Multiple studies have discovered that phytonutrients found in raspberries can protect us from cancer and can even shrink some types of cancer tumors. These substances can also act as an antibacterial and as an antiviral agent. Does this sound too good to be true? One particular substance found in this natural "medicine chest", is a series of compounds called ellagitannins. The highest levels are found in raspberries, but the ellagitannins are also in certain types of grapes, strawberries, blackberries, blueberries and some nuts too. Recent work (2001), published by Dr. Gary Stoner at Ohio State University, showed that components in the seeds and berry, but particularly ellagitannins, inhibited the initiation and promotion/progression stages of esophageal cancer. This is an extremely important finding, considering the potential benefits."
  • "The studies found in the left column [of this web page] were compiled by Susan Thorpe-Vargas Ph.D. and represent a summation of EA's known medical properties:
    EA is an anticancer agent - it protects DNA from mutation.
    EA shrinks tumors within 72 hours if the cancer is not caused by a mutation in the p53 or WAF 1/p21 genes.
    EA is a natural phenolic antioxidant.
    EA exerts actions that are both anti-bacterial and an anti-viral.
    EA appears to inhibit liver fibrosis.
    EA is cardioprotective and may prove useful in the treatment of myocarditis."

Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)
  • "In one breast cancer study, women were given 390 mgs per day in divided doses along with supplements. The result was that tumours shrank. A maintenance dose of 100 mgs was considered adequate."

Actually, the recommended dose of CoQ10 is at least 390 mgs.

Aloe Vera
  • "Michael Arrington was diagnosed with liver cancer. Doctors found 17 tumors on his liver. One was the size of a baseball. Doctors gave the cancer victim 4 to 21 days to live. Six months after Mr. Arrington began taking only Aloe Vera as a supplement, Doctors examining the patient's X-rays could not find [any] trace of the tumors."

Aloe Vera is another one of those natural plants that is very difficult to process correctly to maintain its cancer-fighting properties. The FDA shut down one of the top aloe vera manufacturers because they had a 94% cure rate on terminal cancers.

High Dose Vitamin C
  • "Basically, the vitamin C is transported to the lungs in the blood where it is oxidized. It then is transported to the cells where it diffuses to the mitochondria and delivers its oxidation potential, powering the respiratory chain, and cycle repeats. It should be noted that there have been many reports where mega doses of vitamin C have been attributed to causing the shrinking of cancer tumors."
