This site is for those who want to know what is happening to their world, and why,
and what they can do about it. This information is already on site, just start reading.
Note from Editor of themindweb.com
The below, like most experiences of those who seek a more reliable
and less distressing treatment for cancer, is a lay person experience,
there are many such. By their nature these tend to try anything
in indiscriminate mixture and in the end really do not know what
works and what doesn't; what helps and what hinders, that they so
often succeed is more a result of the benign nature of natural alternatives
than good luck. Readers should realise that there are, and always
have been, people, apart from pharmaceutical companies, who make
money from fake cures and dietary fads are a dime a dozen.
I have been interested in alternative cancer treatment for quite
some time and I recommend that those interested obtain a copy of
the book "World without Cancer" as going into this matter
more thoroughly and I think, more reliably than others; it explains
why and how. Also the book called "Supermarket Cures"
mentioned in an earlier editorial, appears more reliably up to date
in regard to general cancer resisting diet. These are the only books
I recommend on this subject.
Both my Mother and Father died of cancer. My mother quite young
my father in his seventies, I have passed his age by some years
with no problems. I have taken apricot kernels when they were easier
to get and not banned. I am not a health fanatic but have long taken
an interest in a healthy diet and have become convinced that our
greatest dangers are from additives put in pre-packaged foods; especially
preservatives, this, plus excessive refining of food products apparently
designed to increase the cost and improve sales appeal but which
also serve to reduce or destroy nutritional value. We now add to
this genetic engineering and hybridisation.
When I eat apples I also eat the seeds but make sure you are eating
old varieties of apple not hybrids. These seeds also have the same
cancer fighting properties as apricot seed though in smaller amount.
With an otherwise healthy diet a few apples each week will help
your immune system keep you free of cancers. The same applies to
Apricot kernels, do not trust hybrids, genetically engineered varieties
or untested alternatives.
There does not appear to be any logical reason for banning apricot
kernels or laetrile as all information I have strongly indicates
that this appears more reliable and is a far safer and kinder treatment
than those used by the pharmaceutical dominated medical services.
We are all different and there are now quite a variety of cancers
and non-pharmaceutical 'cures' some are dubious. I feel very confident
that we could have a world without cancer if those in power wanted
it that way. That they don't even want us to have a choice surely
condemns them and exposes duplicity.
My name is Angel Rodriguez. I am of Spanish descent, yet born in
Australia. I am commonly called Angelo rather than Angel by my friends,
but either one does not bother me. This is my story regarding my
experience with Laetrile/Vitamin B17 here in Australia. I am 29
years old, married and have a beautiful baby daughter. I am a computer
technical specialist by trade, but have a passion for all things
to do with nature, especially natural herbs and remedies which I
picked up from my mother, who has used them all her life for treating
all types of diseases.
Around late 1997, my father was diagnosed with bowel cancer. He
had the cancer removed by surgery in an operation that was deemed
successful by his doctors. Later in 1999 on a regular routine check
up, he was advised that cancer cells still present in his blood
had caused the spread of cancer to his liver in the form of a large
tumour and two smaller ones. He was also advised that there was
no known medical treatment that was effective for this, only an
attempt of radiation therapy, or if willing he could subject himself
to chemical and radiation experimental treatments with unknown side
effects, and with no guarantee that he will benefit. When we asked
his doctors of a percentage chance of benefit from these treatments
they said 0 - 30%, but realistically would be probably be 0% (At
least they were honest). They had also informed my family that Liver
cancer was considered one of the fastest growing cancers, and that
my dad would probably have maybe 12 - 18 months at best to live.
My first reaction was to think that God must have some kind of
natural treatment and remedy for cancer, somewhere, somehow. It
was around this time I received a random email from a friend of
mine, pointing out that he was surfing the web and had come across
the site http://www.laetrile.com.au/vale.htm . I studied this site
carefully and what it had to say and began researching this claim
myself. From here onwards I increased my knowledge of vitamin B17
from other web sites and bought all the books and reading material
I could find on the subject. Although still rather slightly sceptical
at first it was finding about the Contreras Oasis Hospital in Mexico
and what they had achieved as laetrile pioneers that totally convinced
me that "THIS WORKS" Especially after reading about cases
like Cosmetic Giant Max Factors son Donald Factor and his cancer
story. (click here to read)
THE SEARCH..... Where do you find Apricot seeds in Australia? and
more importantly how do you go about treatment?
(date: early 2000)
At this point armed with diagrams and videos and books on laetrile
I thought, "this is great" I want to get my dad on this
treatment straight away. Surely this will not be a problem in Australia.
Boy was I Wrong!!!!
I firstly wanted to get my dad on Apricot seeds ASAP. I could not
find them anywhere. I checked with places that sold nuts, health
foods etc. Could not find them anywhere. So I tried buying them
on the web from US laetrile web sites. I tried Jason Vales Site
http://www.laetrile.com.au/vale.htm but found out the FDA had shut
them down (Click here for more details). I found some at other sites
but all the seeds I bought were confiscated by customs upon reaching
Australia. At that time I called http://www.worldwithoutcancer.com/
- (who have since been shut down by the FDA - click here for details)
and they sent me a vitamin B supplement in a plastic vitamin bottle.
When I opened it up it was full of Apricot kernels. They looked
very old, rancid and dark but nevertheless it was a start. I continued
to search for somewhere to get apricot seeds. My mother at this
point had started to buy apricots and peaches and was giving the
kernels to my dad to eat. My brother in law who is a Naturopath
student worked with me in finding a supplier of seeds. We searched
for months and then one day he found one. Finally we had a good
supply of apricot seeds grown from organic orchards.
AT LAST WE HAD APRICOT SEEDS!!!
I managed to get seeds for a few months but then would you believe
it.... Due to seasonal factors our supplier ran out of seeds about
mid 2000 and said would not have any more until maybe Jan 2001.
( I guess I was lucky I had bought quite a lot of seeds which actually
lasted me until Nov 2000 but then I had run out as I had given most
of them away to friends who wanted to try them with their loved
ones with cancer).
(Around early-mid 2000) Dads tumour during this time was getting
bigger and the results of his cancer cell count in his blood getting
higher, as the cancer cells had increased over time. I thought at
this point I would have no choice, but to try and get him on at
least the laetrile tablets in concentrated form as well as the seeds.
I then found http://www.kemsa.com/ which looked like a very professional
web site. I called up the Oasis hospital again to get some more
advice on treatment. They suggested my father take Shark Cartilage
and laetrile. So I tried ordering 1 bottle of Kemdalin which contains
50 x 500mg laetrile/amygdalin tablets from KEMSA. It arrived ok.
I then bought another 3 bottles more and thats when customs picked
up on it. They were concerned about what it was, and was in it,
rather than what it did. I gave them all the web sites details which
had all the information of its composure, and amazingly they were
happy with the information and 2 weeks later I received our tablets.
During this time my dad was taking shark cartilage about 4 weeks
prior to the laetrile arriving and was also taking shark cartilage
several months after the laetrile tablets ran out. He was taking
the suggested dose of 3g ie. 6 x 500mg Laetrile tablets a day. 2
in the morning, 2 at lunch and 2 in the evening. I also had him
taking for a few months ESSIAC in a syrup form and red clover herb
tea. The laetrile only lasted 1 month at this dosage but combined
with the shark cartilage and 30 apricot seeds a day it seemed to
be helping as the hospital test results were starting to be positive
and the tumour had stopped growing. His blood cancer cell count
had also not increased.
During Nov 2000 - Jan 2001 I had run out of seeds, and my dad had
also suffered a heart attack in Jan, so he was off the shark cartilage.
He had a new heart vessel cleaning treatment called an angioplast
and had his arteries unblocked and was doing really well but the
cancer was still there and still a problem. At this point as we
had no apricot seeds and could not give him shark cartilage because
of his heart implications, so mum started giving him Fresh Aloe
Vera from her Aloe plants with fresh apple Juice. By Feb 2001, apricot
seeds had come back in season so I ordered lots of them as I had
already begun to wonder how many people out there in Australia were
going through the same thing I had gone through. I also had posted
up a simple B17 web site at this point but in Feb 2001 decided to
redesign it and start offering Apricot seeds to the public as I
thought there would have to be many people also in a similar situation
as mine. In the space of 3 months I had dozens of emails from all
over the country and was meeting people from all over Australia
via email with similar stories to mine, in that they cannot find
apricot seeds or know how to get laetrile treatment. So I have decided
to help where possible and supply apricot seeds in large 10kg quantities
which I know will last a person over a year should seasonal factors
affect the supply again.
Its Now the end of May 2001 as I write this and my dad has recently
received his results of his lasts tests. I went to see his specialist
with him for the results. His specialist showed us the X-Rays which
showed that the tumour had stopped growing, and then what surprised
me was that the specialist who is also a senior lecturer in this
field for the Uni of NSW was not sure if the tumour may actually
be in fact just a mass of dead cells!
Also he could not explain the most amazing results, showing my
dads cancer cell count in his blood had dropped from 257 down to
121 (CEA) - This is a huge reduction. Down by 2/3's. My dad is currently
in good spirits, has no obvious symptoms of his cancer in his life,
although it is still there. He is currently on 30 - 45 seeds a day
still, 10-15 seeds at all 3 meals. Still drinks fresh Aloe Vera
from my mothers garden with 1 teaspoon of honey in 1 cup of water
blended up, every morning and is doing well.
This is Upsetting - The guinea pig TEST
In May 2000 my dad received a letter from his hospital where he
was having his cancer tests etc, inviting him to basically be a
guinea pig for a study of a new chemical to see if it was fit for
humans!!! They assumed that because my father previously had bowel
cancer and it had spread to his Liver, that he was going to die
so he may as well help out with this deadly chemical they want to
test.. They may have well just said "Hey, why not be a volunteer
for modern medicine and help test out this new drug, after all your
basically going to die now anyway". The exact wording read
"........ The purpose of this study is it to determine whether
Chimeric 30.6 is safe to administer to humans.....You were selected
as a possible participant in this study because your bowel cancer
has spread to other organs" click here to see Page 1 (page
2, page 3) Get this, they then go on to mention on Page 2, over
20 possible side effects including death. They included - nausea,
damage to the pancreas, pain at the sites of the tumour, skin reactions,
flushing of the face, burning of the groin, palms and soles of feet,
fever, chills, vomiting headache, diarrhoea, difficulty in breathing
and swelling of the face and the list goes on and on. Read it for
yourself by clicking here page 2
Finally page 3 goes on to inform my father... qoute "We do
not expect that you will receive any benefits from this study"
, which basically means "we want you to do this not for your
gain but for our gain, so we can more money from these deadly drugs".
I am appalled that in our country they will try and submit precious
lives to testing such barbaric and deadly chemicals like Chemeric
30.6, yet call laetrile a systematic poison and not even give it
a proper go, when there is more than overwhelming evidence that
My Opinion on Laetrile
I am not a doctor. I am not a Biochemist who conducts laboratory
tests that show cancer cells being destroyed by vitamin B17. I am
not stupid.. My father's cancer was getting worse before laetrile.
Now its much better. Something is killing the cancer cells. From
my research I believe cancer is a metabolic disease than can be
prevented and treated through proper diet and nutrition which is
the way God planned it. My dad has adopted a combination of the
* Has stopped eating red meat. * Took an initial dose of laetrile
* eats almost totally vegetarian diet * Has almost never stopped
eating Apricot seeds since he started
* Drinks fresh Aloe Vera every morning * Eats plenty of vegetables
* Was taking Shark Cartilage but has stopped due to a heart condition
* Has a very positive attitude.
Mon 13th January 2003 - My Dad turned 71 years old today. He feels
great and his quality of life has not deteriorated one single bit
in the last 3 years. He still has the tumours in his liver as he
goes off and on his diet and still has cancer. He has never stopped
eating apricot seeds about 20 - 25 a day. His doctors cannot explain
why the cancer has not spread, given Liver cancer is said to claim
its victims very rapidly. He was given 12 - 18 months at best to
live and its been over 3 years now. The most part I am thankful
for is that he has his quality of life which was not destroyed by
the toxic effects of Chemotherapy, as he chose not to undergo any
chemo or radio treatment.
