Dr. Kelley in one of his Cancer Control Journal interviews lamented:
Often, the patient tries too many different therapies at one time. This overloads the body with toxins, which sometimes proves fatal. I understand in their anxiety that they want to cover the field and make sure that they are doing everything possible. Sometimes it is difficult for me to understand that a patient wants to go the “natural route” and also fill his body with poisons!
The cancer victim must understand that with both therapies, be it the orthodox chemo-rad, or the natural metabolic, there’s just so much waste material from the malignant cells that are dumped into the bloodstream so that, most of the time, the body cannot eliminate wastes rapidly enough.
The first objective of the patient is to destroy the tumor at a rate that will not cause an over-toxic condition and overwork the liver and the kidneys. His diet and supplements will have to be regulated to accomplish this objective.
The second objective is to build a new body and of course this can only be accomplished by good nutrition, and TIME. It takes an average of four (4) years to grow a malignant condition—you are not going to grow a new body in a few days or weeks. Be patient and let nature have a chance.
Dr. Philip Binzel, in his book, Alive and Well (1994), states:
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 chemotherapy that 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! We are treating the symptom — the tumor, and we are doing absolutely nothing to prevent the spread of the disease. The only thing known to mankind today that will prevent the spread of cancer within the body is for that body’s own defense mechanisms to once again function normally. That’s what nutritional therapy does. It treats the defense mechanism, not the tumor. (page 69)
I am not opposed to the use of radiation. I am not opposed to the use of chemotherapy. There are times when a small amount of radiation for a short period of time can relieve pain and/or be life-saving to a patient. There are times when a small amount of chemotherapy for a short period of time can do the same. It is not the use of these that I so vehemently oppose, it is their abuse. The theory used in this country is that, if a little does some good, a whole lot more will do a whole lot better. Patients are getting radiation and chemotherapy who do not need it. Those who do need it are often getting far more than they need, thereby doing them much more harm than good. (page 71)
