Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy for Cancer

Disclaimer: Consult with a doctor before deciding on a treatment plan for cancer or any other disease. Quick Summary Hydrogen peroxide is an oxidant therapy that should only be used as a helper-treatment and not as a stand-alone cure for cancer. It must be used in tandem with other oxidant therapies. Anti-oxidant cancer therapies cancel out the positive effects of hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide works by increasing the availability of oxygen and increasing the energy of cancer cells which causes them revert back into healthy cells. Detailed Information   One of the reasons why cells change from healthy cells into cancer cells is because they’re low on energy. Hydrogen peroxide increases the availability of oxygen in the body and some scientists believe that by increasing the availability of oxygen, cancer cells can manufacture more energy and become healthy again. Hydrogen peroxide is a helper treatment for cancer. It is not to be used as a stand-alone cancer treatment, but only in tandem with other cancer treatments [2][3].   Hydrogen peroxide treatments can be administered orally or intravenously. Cancer cells can’t survive in a highly-oxygenated environment, so the use of hydrogen peroxide to infuse the body with oxygen can help shrink tumors. Additionally, hydrogen peroxide seems to play an important role as a signaling molecule that can activate the immune system. Hydrogen peroxide is an affordable treatment that’s easy to obtain,...

Blue Light Therapy

Disclaimer: Consult with a doctor before deciding on a treatment plan for cancer or any other disease. Quick Summary Blue light therapy and photodynamic therapy share certain features in common. The primary difference between the two is that photodynamic therapy requires the use of an activator/sensitizer. Blue light therapy is generally used to treat skin conditions. In 2002, the FDA approved ClearLight for use in the treatment of acne though it can also be used to treat cancer. Detailed Information   Blue light therapy is a cancer treatment that is specifically used for melanoma and other skin cancers. Because blue light can only reach those areas that it can directly illuminate, internal cancers aren’t often treated with blue light since doing so would require surgery. Blue light therapy is related to photodynamic therapy [1].   Politics   Blue light therapy is a newer technique for killing skin cancers and treating other skin conditions. The technique was approved by the FDA in 2002 under the name ClearLight, and is used often in dermatology clinics specifically for the treatment of acne [4]. Photodynamic therapy (a similar treatment) also uses blue light in the treatment of cancer and can be a more effective treatment option for some patients, but it is often used in conjunction with chemotherapy or radiation in the United States. Other countries offer photodynamic therapy and blue light therapy as...

Oxygen Therapies for Cancer

Otto Warburg won a Nobel Prize for discovering that cancer cells had lower levels of oxygen than healthy cells. This fact has led to a number of holistic cancer treatments that focus on increasing the body’s overall levels of oxygen. While higher levels of oxygen can be good for general health, it’s important for cancer patients to realize that a lack of oxygen is not what causes cancer. Rather, the process of developing cancer causes a lack of oxygen inside cancer cells.   Instead of burning carbohydrates for fuel using oxygen, cancer cells develop a rogue metabolism that involves fermenting glucose. This fermentation process makes cancer cells greedy for glucose. While normal cells can use one oxygen molecule and one glucose molecule to produce about 36 packets of energy (in the form of ATP), cancer cells use only glucose. Using only glucose, the cancer cells can only make about 2 packets of energy; but they can make this energy much more quickly than a healthy cell. With a constant supply of glucose molecules, cancer cells can produce energy 100 times more quickly than a healthy cell.   As such, in treating cancer, adding more oxygen to the body may not be as beneficial as reducing the supply of glucose (sugars) available to cancer cells. Patients may benefit from an enhanced immune system having more oxygen in the body, however....

Intravenous Phenylbutyrate /Antineoplaston Treatment

Disclaimer: Consult with a doctor before deciding on a treatment plan for cancer or any other disease. Quick Description: Phenylbutyrate is a substance made up of naturally occurring chemical compounds including amino acids and peptides. They’re found in both blood and urine and through a complex mechanism involving DNA, these compounds have been shown to fight cancer. The presence of phenylbutyrate in urine could help explain why urine fasting has been shown to fight cancer [5].   Antineoplastons share active ingredients with the metabolites of phenylbutyrate and in fact, phenylbutyrate is a precursor of antineoplastons. In other words, once the phenylbutyrate enters the body, it is converted into antineoplastons [14][17].  Antineoplastons are found in the blood and urine, but they are also manufactured in the laboratory for research [15].   Research has shown that sodium phenylbutyrate, a compound that can inhibit deacetylase, can inhibit growth to restore the cell to health or cause the programmed death of cancer cells. Butyric acid and its derivatives have been studied for years to learn about their potential use in treating cancer as well as other diseases. The most extensive research has been done on sodium phenylbutyrate [1][2].   The chemistry underlying the success of sodium phenylbutyrate and antineoplastons as a cancer cure has to do with acetylation. Though it isn’t necessary to understand all of the chemical complexities of why phenylbutyrate works, most...

Salinomycin IV for Cancer Treatment

Disclaimer: Consult with a doctor before deciding on a treatment plan for cancer or any other disease Quick Summary Salinomycin is a powerful cancer treatment. It is an antibiotic that’s been used to treat infections in poultry, but despite its demonstrated ability to cure human diseases like cancer and malaria, it is rarely used in humans because it would negate the need for conventional treatments like chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery. Sigma owns the patent rights to salinomycin which is why this drug is so hard to find despite its ability to cure major diseases. Detailed Information   Salinomycin (also known in some circles as “Sal”) is a polyether ionophore antibiotic that has been isolated from Streptomyces albus. Research has shown that it has the ability to kill Cancer Stem Cells (CSC’s) in a variety of different human cancers [1][14][20].   Salinomycin was developed in the 1960’s and has been in use since for over 3 decades as an agricultural antibiotic that’s used to prevent coccidiosis in poultry. It also improves nutrient absorption in other ruminant animals and swine. As an ionophore, salinomycin can transport specific ions across cellular membranes in both directions to promote cellular healing or apoptosis. Salinomycin shows a particular affinity for potassium and a preference for alkali ions in general [2][11][20].   Alkali Ions   The alkali ions include:   Lithium – Li Sodium – Na Potassium...
