Natural Cancer Therapy: It’s all about nutritional supplementation (Updated)

In spite of my advocacy, learning that my Navarro HCG urine titer came in positive felt like a blow to my midsection: there IS something growing somewhere in my body?! But the shock was momentary: I was sub-clinical! And knowing soon enough was good: it meant I was some 2-3 years ahead before the proverbial bump or palpable tumor manifests itself, giving me this chance to stem and control the cancer at its earliest!

And so, a day after my urine titer came in positive, l started on my mother’s regimen of enzymes, Vitamin B17, the nutritional supplements essayed by Dr. Kelley in his 1974 edition of One Answer to Cancer, and some added vitamins suggested by Dr. Manuel Navarro and my father, the doctor. Partial to fish and vegetables, there was not much to change in my diet but there were new habits to develop. There’s no denying the fact that even when my titer finally comes in negative, I shall have to take a form of metabolic support for the rest of my life as maintenance to ward off new growths.

A. Vitamins
B. Digestive
C. Hydrochloric or Ascorbic Acid
D. Minerals
E. Good Quality Protein
F. Easily Assimilated Protein
G. Pancreatic Enzymes


Even if the body produces enough pancreatic enzymes, one’s diet might not provide enough co-enzymes (vitamins) to make the enzymes work, so I take:
1. Multivitamins, 1 caplet once a day (OD), after breakfast;
2. CoQ10 60 mg. 1 capsule OD, after breakfast
Rationale: cells use it to produce energy for cell growth and maintenance.
3. Vit E 400 I.U. 1 gelcap twice a day (BID), after breakfast and dinner;
Rationale: a vasodilator, assists in delivery of coenzymes where needed.
4. Folic Acid 400 mg, 1 tablet BID, after breakfast and dinner;
Rationale: assists in bowel absorption of nutrients.
5. Niacin 50 mg. 1 tablet BID, after breakfast and dinner;
Rationale: converts food to energy and helps digestive system.
6. Vit B17 250 mg. 1 capsule BID, after breakfast and dinner;
Rationale: poisons the malignant cells while nourishing all the rest. Vitamin B17 (amygdalin) is not the deadly “cyanide”. It is only similar to cyanide. As explained by Dr. Manuel Navarro, and published under his name on, amygdalin’s chemical formula lacks an “h” factor of the cyanide formula. It is an amazing fact that it is only cancer cells, being non-aerobic, that produce within themselves that missing ‘h’ factor, and thus poison themselves when touched by Vitamin B17 (while) all other cells are left untouched.
>Natural sources: bitter almonds, seeds of cherries, plums, apples, pears, all kinds of berries, cassava, bamboo shoots and mung bean sprouts; and
>Raw apricot kernels (co-hieng): Dr. Ernst Krebs’ rule of thumb as to its daily consumption is 1 whole kernel per 10 lbs. of body weight; I portion off my daily limit and snack on them through out the day.


Certain foods, such as pasteurized milk with its mutated proteins, as well as many cooked foods, cause mucus build-up which coat the tiny fingers (villi) on the wall of the small intestines, preventing the proper absorption of nutrients from digested food. Although blockage may vary from just minerals to larger molecules, sometimes the mucus can get so thick and tough, almost no nutrition gets through to the body. As most cancer victims have difficulty digesting and properly assimilating food, then starts the vicious cycle of starving, needing more food, including protein, using up more pancreatic enzyme to digest the protein, which is not even properly absorbed, until there are none left to destroy cancer cells. (OAC, 2010 edition, p. 36-37).

Since Dr. Kelley’s recommended Okra-Pepsin-E3 is not available locally, I took:
> Okra, lightly steamed, 2-5 pcs. 3 times a day (TID) after every meal for 1 month (reduce if diarrhea occurs); then once a year for 1 week to keep the mucus from building up again.
Rationale: I expect the real thing, freshly harvested organic okra from my back garden, would do just as well: the mucus sticking to the intestinal wall would allow enzymes to digest some mucus, at a time, and eventually allow proper absorption of nutrients from digested foods.


In the 1st to 8 weeks of therapy, so much waste products surround the cells, interfering with normal metabolism, including elimination of waste products so that body chemistry and cell metabolism are slowed way down like they’re approaching a standstill. To counter this I take:
> Ascorbic Acid 500 mg. 1 tablet TID after meals
For advanced cases, the suggested dose is 3 tablets TID after meals for 2 months; thereafter, 1 tablet TID after meals.
Rationale: An acid like ascorbic acid in vitamin C gets the proper metabolic process started again, and with increased sustenance, long stagnant cells are rejuvenated which cause long-unused muscles to ache as though from strenuous and vigorous exercise.
(On 4500 mg for just 2 days, patient ASI complained how the nape of her neck felt terribly battered (‘parang binugbog’), which left a slight tenderness by next evening.


Balanced compounds of natural organic and trace minerals seem to stimulate the liver and are necessary to trigger the digestive enzymes so I take:
> Zinc, 50 mg. tablet once a day after dinner.
Rationale: Zinc is the transportation mechanism for the nitrilosides. One could give Laetrile until it came out of the ears of the patient, but if that patient did not have a sufficient level of zinc, none of the Laetrile would get into the tissues of the body. (Philip E. Binzel, M.D., in his book Alive and Well) Moreover, Earl Mindell’s Vitamin Bible (p. 119) asserts that zinc acts as a traffic policeman, directing and overseeing the efficient flow of body processes, the maintenance of enzyme systems and cells, and is essential for protein synthesis.
> Black-strap molasses (pulot locally), 1 tbsp, 2-3 times a day.
Rationale: Black-strap molasses is preferred because it has a high concentration of minerals. It offsets some of the bad effects of white sugar as it provides the minerals removed from sugar in the refining process.


Some are tempted to give up proteins altogether when they learn that too much protein in the diet uses up the enzymes and prevents ridding the body of cancer. More than ever, good quality protein is needed by the body. The pancreatic enzymes are proteins (amino acids), and unless the body is fed adequate protein, enzyme production will stop and the cancer tissues will grow more rapidly. (Bold mine) This is the reason why cancer diets like the “Grape Cure” worked so well for the first few months—no protein —thus leaving the pancreatic enzyme to digest the cancer. But over prolonged periods, with total abstinence of protein, the pancreas fail. Proper balance and regulated intake is the answer. (OAC, Protein, p.46)
> Raw almonds are a very good source of protein: 10 at breakfast, and 10 almonds at lunch.
> A mix of raw almonds, cashews, pecans, filberts, Brazil nuts, walnuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, and sesame seeds, eaten anytime up to 1 p.m., is recommended to supplement protein during the 1st six months when meat proteins are severely restricted.
> Patani, kadyos, beans, and togue (mung bean sprouts) I stir-fry, Chinese-style.


Egg is an unusually good source of quality protein—well balanced and the standard by which all protein is evaluated, having all the essential amino acids in proper proportions. I take properly prepared Eggs: 2 a day, 1 in the morning, the other at dinner.
Rationale: Steeping destroys an enzyme found between the shell and the egg membrane which prevents the biotin in the egg from functioning normally. Biotin, when it functions properly, greatly reduces the cholesterol risks of taking eggs. Please refer to Take Care: Eggs and Cholesterol for proper preparation of eggs.

As eggs remain uncooked, they may be prepared as preferred: soft or hard-boiled, scrambled or sunny-side up. I use them even for flans and baking. I usually prepare 12 eggs at a time and store them in the ref for future use.


The body must have protein to live. But no matter how much protein is eaten, when there is insufficient enzymes to digest the large volumes of pasteurized milk and cheese, and cooked meat consumed, no protein can be assimilated. Without adequate protein from food supply, the body gradually uses up the muscles of the body in order to sustain life. Dr. Kelley contends that cancer ‘is a starvation condition where the patient is actually starving to death.’ (Cancer Control Journal, Vol. 1, No. 7/8, p. 5).

I take:
> Ultrazyme, 1 tablet TID, with meals, AND 2 hours after each meal For those in advanced stages of cancer, Dr. Kelley advocates additional enzymes at 3 a.m. and 3 p.m. when there is no protein in the intestinal tract to digest; the enzymes then enter the bloodstream to go directly where it is needed to digest the malignant cells. (CCJ, Vol.1, No.7/8, p. 3)


NO milk, coffee, cocoa, alcohol, soft drinks, ice cream, white bread, bakery products, all processed foods, canned and bottled goods, chips and fries, candies, chocolates, and white sugar. The ingredients and/or the nature of preparation of all these prohibited foods use chemicals or preservatives.

ALLOWED: I have fish in the morning until lunchtime. NO PROTEIN allowed after 1 p.m.

It is not only imperative that the correct kind and quantity of protein be eaten, but of equal importance, it must be taken at a specific time. We have found the regular proteins should be taken at breakfast and lunch only. When this is strictly observed, the pancreatic enzymes used in the digestion of protein are used only about 6 hours. This leaves 18 hours for the production of pancreatic enzymes to digest cancer tissue. (OAC, 2010 edition, Protein Timing, p.46)


1. For nutritional and iron deficiency, I have
> Fresh, young iron-rich leaves (talbos) of kamote (yam), kalabasa (squash), malunggay, alugbati, sili (pepper), pechay tagalog, etc. as salad, dribbled with a simple dressing of kalamansi (local lemon), brown or coco sugar, and salt and pepper to taste. As a concoction, i ball several kinds of talbos onto a handkerchief, lightly pound to a mush in a pestle then dip and squeeze several times in a glass of tap water then flavored with brown or coco sugar, or grated panucha (sugar cane produced by a crude milling process).

2. Essential Fatty Acids: is important. The body cannot make them and have to be provided in one’s diet; cancer patients are allowed only unrefined olive, flaxseed, and coconut oil.
> VCO, 2 tbsp once a day. I take Growrich VCO, available at generic pharmacies, 1 cap twice a day after meals,
OR one may take:
> Flaxseed oil, cold-pressed, 2 tbsp once a day for the first 2 months, and 1 tbsp daily thereafter; it may  also be taken with ½ cup cottage cheese (for the sulfur which promotes healing).
Note: Flax-oil capsules (from health food stores) are worthless unless they are refrigerated.

3. Malic Acid:.
Rationale: Acts as solvent in the bile to weaken adhesions between solid particles.
> Apple, blended with core and seeds, 2 tbsp OD, after breakfast.
> Cider vinegar, 2 tsp OD after dinner; may be mixed in a cup of warm water with 1 tsp. honey .

4. Vegetables: best taken raw to preserve natural enzymes, are even better taken as juice so as to conserve patient’s energy from having to digest whole vegetables:
> Carrot and celery as juice- top w/equal amount of h2o, drink before meals.
Variations: cabbage and potato, spinach and cucumber, parsley and labanos.

5. Fruits: best taken fresh to benefit from natural enzymes. I dice and process in a blender or juicer for easy and faster digestion and absorption. As salads, I take the sweet fruits either drizzled with kalamansi (local lemon) and a little salt, or with cottage cheese, when available.
> Local fruits high in Vitamin B17: singkamas, tieza, tamarind.

About the year 424 B.C., Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine made the statement, “Your food shall be your medicine, and your medicine shall be your food.” Try as we might we have not been able to improve upon this basic truth. This is particularly true when it comes to the successful treatment of the cancer patient. At least 86% of all cancer conditions could be adequately treated and/or prevented by diet alone. (OAC, Chapter V, Metabolic Medicine’s Cancer Cure Diet, p. 45)
