 Cancer - Simplified

Majid Ali, M.D.

For elimination or control of cancer, we must clearly understand seven aspects of this problem: (1) Cancer is an oxidative-metabolicproblem; (2) The rational approach to cancer must consider all aspects of accelerated oxidative injury; (3) Oxidative-metabolic disorders almost always begin in the bowel ecosystem; (4) Surgery in some cases offers a good possibility of total removal of the lesion, but chemotherapy badly damages our antioxidant and enzyme defenses, and except for cancer in children and a few other types of tumors, should be avoided; (5) There are many safe therapies that slowly kill cancer cells while strengthening human antioxidant and enzyme defenses; (6) Restoration of the battered bowel-blood-liver ecosystems must be considered the top priority in designing any program for controlling or eliminating cancer; and (7) The issues of prayer, meditation and spiritual surrender are not only necessary but are the core issues for life with or without cancer.

Cancer is a complex subject and I suggest the reader consider my two-volume book entitled "Oxygen, The Crab, and cancer" and the third volume entitled "Breast and Prostate Cancer" for detailed information concerning items presented in this tutorial.




How Bad Is the Problem?

An estimated 1.2 million Americans develop cancer each year and about half that many die each year. How effective is the modern American drug treatment of asthma? Consider the following two recent quotes:

"In 1986, we concluded that 'some 35 years of intebnse effort focused largely on improving treatment must be judged a qualified failure.' Now, with 12 more years of data and experience, we see little reason to change that conclusion."

New England Journal of Medicine

1997; 336:1569

"However, the extent of improvement in survival for specific cancers is often not as great as that reported. One resaon is that biases artificially inflate the amount of 'true' progress...improvements in patient survival have been most dramatic for the rarer forms of cancer and least dramatic for the more prevalent cancers"

Cancer Patient Survival

The Core Message For the Patient With Cancer

Before describing nondrug therapies for controlling cancer used by the author and his colleagues use at the Institute of Preventive Medicine, the author wishes to state the two core messages of this article clearly: For coping with with stresses associated with the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, here are two essentials:


Spiritual Surrender!


Bowel! Bowel! Bowel!

The author's emphasis on the bowel might irk some readers. On the surface, cancer of breast is a breast problem, and a cancer of colon is a colon problem. Here are the author's reasons for focusing on the bowel: (1) Asthma is an oxidative-metabolic disorder, and all immune disorders arise in the bowel; (2) Cancer is considered an immune disorder and all inflammatory disorders begin in the bowel; (3) Mold allergy and food sensitivities cause troublesome reactions for persons with cancer, and such reactions start in the bowel; (4) Microbial toxins poison antioxidant and immune defenses, and all such defenses are primarily located in the bowel; (5) Low levels of certain enzymes (catalysts) set the stage for asthma attacks, and levels of such enzymes fall because of elements in the bowel; (6) Chemicals trigger reactions that can weaken antioxidant and enzyme defenses, and the bowel is the gaurdian angel of the liver; (7) Cancer often appears after severe stress, and many such stresses are related to imune responses rooted in the bowel. The author refers advanced and professional readers to his two recent papers published in The Journal of Integrative Medicine1,2 which discusses at length the scientific basis of all of the above statements.

Spiritual Surrender

The author's emphasis on spiritual work is also likely to irk some. But he does not rank the spirituality so high in his priorities for asthma because it has become fashionable to do so. He has been a student of medicine for 40 years. His work with the sick has convinced him that constant thinking about one's disease comes in the way of healing. The popular notion of mind-over-body healing does not work. An energy-over-mind approach does work. If that be so, why put the bowel ecology above spiritual surrender? That's a valid question. Indeed, spiritual work does become #1 items once all the issues of the battered bowel ecosystem have been addressed. The author discusses this important isuue in Healing Miracles and the Bite of the Gray Dog,

Need for Supervision by An Experienced Clinician

At present persons with cancer in the United States face a difficult problem. The insurance industry under influence of drug manufacturers stubbornly refuses to consider all the facts in an unprejudiced way. Ignorant of the possibility of control and/or elimination of cancer with nondrug therapies, they flatly refuse to honor their legal committment to their policy holders who suffer cancer. Thus, regrettably many persons with cancer are forced to try nondrug therapies on their own. Whenever possible, persons with cancer should seek advice from clinicians experienced in cancer care.

Immune Aspects of Cancer

Both cancer and mold allergy are common disorders. Thus, many persons with cancer also suffer from mold allergy and food sensitivities. There are two important considerations here:

First, therapy with mold extracts (immunotherapy) offers a possibility of strengthening the immune system, just like tuberculosis vaccine is used for bladder for cancer.

Second, diagnosis and management of mold and food sensitivities help significantly reduce the total oxidative stress on the person. As noted early, cancer is an oxidative-metabolic disorder, and all therapies that reduce total oxidative and acidic stresses are valuable in the fight against cancer.

Accuracy In Diagnosis

Some practitioners of alternative medicine take the position that doing a diagnostic biopsy of the tumor spreads cancer, and hence it should be avoided. The author thinks that is a serious mistake in most cases. It is necessary to know the type and spread of the tumor for designing a good program for cancer control.

Efficacy of Nondrug, Integrated Therapies for Cancer

In a 1991 outcome study of asthma presented at the 26th Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Environmental Medicine, the author reported control of asthma without drugs in 77% patients after more than six months of treatment.5

Nonchemo Management of Cancer

At the Institute, the author and his colleagues individualize care for persons with cancer with focus on the following: (1) diagnosis and treatment of mold and food sensitivity; (2) optimal choices in the kitchen, avoiding sugar-insulin-adrenaline roller coasters; (3) optimal hydration; (4) asthma-smart nutrients (see below for details); (5) asthma-smart herbs, ; (6) enzymes therapies, including fresh vegetable juices and supplemental enzymes); (7) support for the battered bowel ecology; (8) support for the blood ecosystem with therapies for cleansing blood of microclots and microplaques, such as EDTA chelation, and IV hydrogen peroxide and ozone (see The Seven for the Heart of this series for details); (9) improvement in liver detox with nutrients, such as glutathione, N-acetylcysteine, MSM, and lipoic acid, and use of herbs such as milk thistle, schizandra, and turmeric; (10) and judicious use of of liver and gall bladder flush (under professional supervision); (11) diagnosis and treatment of the troubled trio of thyroid-adrenal-pancreas (which can frequently be diagnosed with proper laboratory tests; (12) support for the pituitary-sex hormones-neurotransmitter trio, especially in women with hormonal disorders (see The Seven for Hormones of this series); (13) limbic exercise (prayerful and non-goal-oriented); and (14) stress control with prayer, meditation, and spiritual surrender discussed in What Do Lions Know About Stress?

Cancer-Smart Nutrients

The big seven among nutrients are: magnesium, glutathione, vitamin B12, protein and peptide protocols, panetheine, essential oils, and taurine. The following guidelines are often used by the Institute physicians: (1) antioxidant vitamins, including vitamins A and beta carotene (together 10,000 IU), vitamin C (1,000 to 3,000 mg), vitamin E (400 to 600 IU), pantetheine (150-250 mg), and some members of B complex (25 to 50 mg each) ; (2) sulfur-containing antioxidants, including glutathione (500 to 1,000 mg), NAC [N-acetylcysteine] (500 to 800 mg), MSM 500 to 1,000 mg), and lipoic acid (200 to 500 mg); (3) minerals, including magnesium (1,500-2,500 mg), potassium (200-500 mg), chromium (400-600 mcg; selenium (400-600) mcg, molybdenum (400-600 mcg), and calcium (1,000 to 1,500 mg); (4) essential oils, including cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil, flaxseed oil, pumpkin oils, and sesame oil; (5) protein and peptide protocols containing 80-90% amino acids;

Cancer-Smart Foods and Herbs

The big seven herbs for asthma are: uncooked ginger (one-half inch long piece of chopped root eaten with food or taken with water), licrorice, wild cheery, hawthorne berry, fennel seeds, blood root, and ephedra. Others of value include sundew, grindelia and mouse ear. Since anxiety about asthma attack often triggers an attack, herbs such as lobelia, valerian, skullcap and St. John's wort are also valuable.

Intramuscular and Intravenous Nutrient Support for Persons With Cancer

Judicious use of intramuscular injections and intravenous infusions of nutrients, in the author's experience, are extremely valuable in managing difficult cases of asthma, and in avoiding the use of steroids or other immune-suppressinmg drugs. The seven nutrients mentioned earlier are especially valuable when given by injections. For specific information, advanced and professional readers are referred to the author's monograph, Intravenous Nutrient Protocols in Molecular Medicine.

Restoration of the Battered Bowel Ecosystems

When properly searched, clear evidence of damage to the bowel ecosystem can be almost always recognized in persons suffering from asthma. The author recommends a seed-feed and occasionally weed approach to restore the bowel ecology described in detail The Canary and Chronic Fatigue. The author and his colleagues often prescribe on intermittent basis antifungal drugs, such as Nystatin, Diflucan, Sporonox and others. However, good long-term results can be assured only with natural remedies.

Two Things to Avoid: Antibiotics and Steroids

Antibiotics and steroids are sometimes essential during treatment of cancer. However, both classes of drugs disrupt oxygen homeostasis by many mechanisms. Every effort should be made to use nondrug restorative therapies before resorting to steroids and antibiotic therapies.
