I am a fugitive from the medical establishment, a heretic to orthodox cancer protocols. I didn’t start this way. I was led by sad experience.
My dermatologist had been inspecting and treating my pinkish white skin for a several years. With minor procedures she removed potentially dangerous growths that she called “precancerous lesions”. It hurt just a bit. Aftercare included application of healing ointments, limited exposure to sunshine, and liberal application of sunscreen. Biopsies were negative.
With growing interest in cancer and its treatments I became familiar with the internet.
I was horrified when a biopsy on my right arm indicated potentially deadly melanoma. A surgeon excised the tumor. My arm carries a scar that resembles a zipper. Thank goodness for general anesthesia and narcotics.
The next spring carcinoma presented on my upper arm. Two surgeries were required to remove the tumor. My wife dressed the wound. PT-Scans were negative. Treatment was complete.
I had developed an amazing ability to grow tumors. It was terrifying to contemplate that someday I might grow one that would require deeper incisions, radiation and/or chemotherapy.
A year later I had a stage “2” HPV tumor thriving in my right tonsil. My surgeon called it “Michael Douglas disease”. I asked him, “why me”. He told me that it usually presents in men in their forties who drink, smoke and have too many sex-partners. After a bit more Q&A he concluded that my clean life-style after the age of thirty-five probably pushed back my disease by twenty years.
If lifestyle change can prevent disease, wouldn’t logic suggest that it also might cure disease?
The surgeon’s team included a radiologist and oncologist. They strongly recommended radiation therapy and perhaps chemotherapy. I asked them for evidence that these treatments would be effective, and they had only anecdotes to offer. They scared me with “what if” scenarios, but did not back up their assertions with the gold-standard of medical science, empirical studies in peer reviewed journals. Not even one article to recommend from any of them.
I indicated that intravenous vitamin “C” had been used to cure cancer in China since the 1970s, and that there were clinics offering this safe and effective alternative, in Nassau County. My team was ignorant. They had never heard of this treatment and demanded empirical studies in peer review journals, which was exactly what they could not offer in support for their own protocols.
Although I resisted using provocative terms like “double standard” and “quack”, my surgeon was exasperated and frustrated when he asked me, “What kind of doctor would give a placebo to a cancer patient when he knows that radiation and chemo therapy works?” He was unprepared for my reply. “A scientist. A doctor who is a scientist. Otherwise he would just be offering unproven, dangerous experimental medicine.”
Discretion prevented me from further inflaming him by saying that he was prescribing pseudo-science and pseudo-medicine.
After the tumor was excised, I refused further treatment. The radiologist tempted me with $20,000 of disability and a conservative (his word) series of treatments that would cost much more. It would all be covered by insurance.
The team was so persistent that I had to fire them. They acted like my choice of protocol was suicide. It was gratifying to say to my arrogant oncologist, “You are not my doctor anymore. You are fired.” Ditto my surgeon, who I believe is a talented doctor and a brilliant man, but not comfortable questioning established practice and perhaps not even comfortable thinking for himself.
My complimentary protocol included intra-venous vitamin “C”. My insurance company reimbursed me completely. They classified it as chemotherapy. It was that. It killed cancer cells, but without sickening side-effects.
It was not fun getting a needle stuck in my arm three times a week and sitting still for two hours. It gave me mild chills that could be remedied with a blanket. It made me urinate inconveniently, but with needle in place I could travel to the lavatory. The benefits were invigorating. I played tennis and swam after therapy. I did not need to draw on my disability insurance, and the only work I missed was the time spent in therapy.
A year later I took a CT scan. It revealed no cancer, but a few months later a squamous tumor presented in my jaw. Two surgeries were required to get it all out. I refused radiation and/or chemo offered by another skilled, ignorant and arrogant surgeon. About the “C” therapy he said. “If it was effective I would know about it.” Against his urging I resumed the “C-mo-therapy”. A year later another scan revealed no cancer; likewise comprehensive blood testing.
To support my own holistic protocol, I visited a wise Chinese doctor. She graduated from Medical School in China in the fifties and practiced thoracic surgery for twenty years before emigrating. Her intellect, experience and wisdom exceeded all the others. She treated me with acupuncture paying special attention to my lymphatic system.
I also visited a talented, experienced and wise chiropractor every month for immune support and to help keep me swinging my tennis racket like a champ.
The clinic where I received my c-mo-therapy was directed by a brilliant, courageous American medical doctor. He was certified and distinguished in allopathic medicine, but completely comfortable with complimentary alternatives. This was my team. I was determined to build my immune system and make it so strong that no cancer could survive.
After another year, I had a comprehensive series of blood tests and another CT-Scan. No cancer was found. My doctor told me that I had no cancer, but that I would get it again, unless I switched to a vegan diet. It was not that different and I did it with the full support of my wife. I was not fat, but lost ten pounds, as my doctor predicted. I felt better and looked better too. He told me that I could eat wild salmon once per week, and I usually do.
After getting cancer every year for five years, I took a third annual comprehensive blood workup. I had no cancer. My doctor asked me, “What are you taking?” I said, “C and E, and A, and…” He interrupted me. “No, really. Are you taking something?” “Oh, I take freeze dried wheat grass pills, three in the morning and three at night.” “NO. Are you taking something?” Then I knew what he meant. I had not taken any growth hormones, testosterone or other controlled substances.
“Your testosterone was off the charts when you began. Over 900 is amazing for a man your age, but now it is 1170. And that is not all….You have reversed the aging process.”
“Hey. You’re my doctor.”
My acupuncturist told me, “I have been treating you for twenty years. Your face has wrinkles and you have less hair, but your body is the same.”
“Thank you, doctor.” I said.
My chiropractor told me “You are a perfect specimen of an adult male.”
“Thank you. You’re my doctor.” I said.
“And you are an excellent patient.” He replied.
This story is true. With the right partner, I won the tennis doubles championship at my club last year and have moved to a better club. I cannot tell you who my doctors are because this kind of medical competition poses a real threat to the multi-billion dollar medical industrial complex. Hacks don’t like competition. The AMA is a vicious and unscrupulous rival. When they can’t accept enlightening ideas, they attack their champions.
Do you know that the AMA, even after exhaustive appeals was found guilty of conspiracy and in violation of the Sherman Anti-Trust Act for illegally attacking the entire chiropractic profession? Less than 30% of doctors actually belong to the AMA. * It is criminal organization ** and yet, in collusion with pharmaceutical manufacturers and insurance companies they intimidate doctors to comply in suppressing less expensive and more curative alternatives, pushing helpless and desperate patients into painful, unproven and often ineffective orthodox protocols, causing unnecessary suffering and pre-mature death.
None of my doctors have expressed categorical opposition to radiation and/or chemotherapy. Nor do I mean to suggest that it is useless. What I do mean to suggest is that there are alternatives that can be complimentary and might even supplant orthodox protocol in some cases. I wish that orthodox doctors whom I have mentioned would be open-minded and intellectually honest. It is my hope that other patients will learn from my example. We do not have to accept bad medicine. We can think for ourselves.
I will not publically expose my doctors here, but I will offer you readers, including talented and honorable healers and pharmacists among you who do not know better to try some information.

After that, read through the Japanese College of Intravenous Therapy’s report on Vitamin C’s effects on radiation-induced cancer-related gene expression in Nuclear plant workers, or just watch the amazing video which covers the study, regarding the heroes of Fukushima. They both include proof that vitamin “C” can neutralize the harmful effects of radiation.
*According to a separate census conducted by the Federation of State Medical Boards, there were 878,194 physicians with active licenses last year in the U.S. While this corresponds to the AMA representing 25.6% of U.S. physicians, AMA membership is also open to medical students who pay $20 in annual membership dues and retired physicians who pay $84 a year—compared with the $420 in dues the organization charges for active, licensed physicians practicing full time.

Further notes on orthodox medicine and science peer reviewed and awarded:
Antonio Egas Moniz developed a procedure he called “leucotomy” in 1935.
Dr. Walter Freeman, an American psychiatrist refined it and in 1936 called it “lobotomy”. In 1946 he developed “ice-pick lobotomy” and performed up to 25 per day. He won the Nobel Prize. Later, although his procedures were banned in Germany, Russia and Japan, in USA hundreds of thousands were performed before the practice was discredited and discontinued in 1982.
Dr. Konrad Lorenz discovered “imprinting” in geese and ducks when he was just a child prodigy. He earned his doctorates in medicine, zoology, psychology and became one of Austria’s most noted scientists. He won the Nobel Prize and is considered a father of behavioral psychology. He joined the Nazi party and pioneered euthanasia for mentally defective people and racial cleansing.
