Excerpts from “Options, the Alternative Cancer Therapy Book”

October 17th, 2010 No comments


One of these classic books you must know about, Option the Alternative Cancer Therapy Book is a very good reference book on the origins and history of various “alternative” cancer treatments.

One comment on Amazon said:

If you are considering a certain treatment, you would be wise to look into this book’s writeup on it. You will find accurate information on how it evolved and how, in many cases, it has been suppressed by the orthodox cancer “establishment.” You will even find some resources to contact about it.

Another comment said:

I have to say that this book impacted me more than any other book on alternative cancer treatments — and I’ve read scores of them. Richard Walters has done an excellent job of researching and presenting the histories and theories of most of the approaches you will ever hear about in your search for answers. And the way he presents the material is exciting and easy-to-understand. I take my hat off to this author for the gift of information he has given the world in such a well-written fashion. He may not present a few of the more recently developed cancer approaches, such as Poly-MVA or Protocel, but his chapters on many other current therapies such as Burzynski’s antineoplastons, Hydrazine Sulfate, DMSO, the Gerson Therapy, 714X, and Iscador (what Suzanne Somers used), among others, are truly award-winning.

For anyone wanting an in-depth understanding and overview of alternative cancer therapies up to recent years, this book is a must-read!

Publishers Weekly Review:

Walters’s book on alternative cancer treatments makes use of the elements found in science fiction and detective stories. Instead of soberly presenting a list of untraditional approaches to treatment, he dramatically unveils what he feels is a gigantic conspiracy to suppress the truth about noninvasive, nontoxic, unorthodox methods. He agrees with a remark he attributes to Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling: “Everyone should know that the ‘war on cancer’ is largely a fraud.” This makes for some fascinating reading, but the science informing many of these treatments is unclear. The Rife generator, a bioelectric device that reportedly conquered terminal cancer in the 1930s, was decisively–and unfairly, argues Walter–discredited by the powers-that-were of conventional medicine. Essiac, an herbal tea reputed to cause remission in many cases of terminal cancer, and the Hoxsey Therapy, another herbal remedy linked to Native American and folk medicine, have been ignored or attacked by researchers and physicians. The many tales of miraculous cures are intriguing and seem to warrant further study, yet Walters believes that the testing of drugs and treatments on animals is not only cruel but ineffective–a view shared by few scientists. So the therapies in this book use people as guinea pigs. The reader is warned that while Walters’s guide is “not intended as endorsement for any particular therapies, it does illustrate how specific therapies work and may give hope and strength to readers.” The safest advice Walters gives is this: “Approach all therapies–conventional and alternative–with healthy skepticism and suspicion.”

Amazon Review:

A comprehensive survey of alternative cancer treatments, Options is especially useful for including not only information about herbal, nutritional and other holistic approaches, but also about maverick doctors and scientists, and experimental drug therapies. This is information that is hard to find in any form, and almost impossible to find in language that is accessible to the non-scientist. Although translated from medicalese, the book retains a slightly sterile tone, emphasizing the scientific validity of the various therapies. But if you’ve been diagnosed with cancer and want facts on alternative therapies, Options offers synopses of research, anecdotal accounts of treatment and analysis of how some medical treatments become standard, while others become quackery. — From The WomanSource Catalog & Review: Tools for Connecting the Community for Women; review by PCP

I am writing about this book today so I can include a few excerpts from the book on oral health and cancer.

Here they are:

A few excerpts from the book:

A pioneer in alternative cancer treatment, Josef Issels, M.D. of Germany achieved remarkable remissions, even in advanced cancer patients through a combination of therapies. The methods he employed included removing sties of “focal infection,” such as infected teeth and tonsils. He believed they release toxins into the system that lower resistance and trigger disease. His experience showed a direct connection between dental and tonsillar foci and many of the illnesses responsible for early debilitation and untimely invalidizing. A survey conducted at his clinic found that on admission 90% of the adult cancer patients had between two and ten dead teeth. Very often he was confronted with x-ray negative dead teeth, root remnants and residual ostitis which had not been diagnosed and therefore, had not been removed.

Never Get A Root Canal

October 17th, 2010 No comments

Below I summarize an article titled “Why You Should Never Get A Root Canal” posted on January 16, 2010

Three major issues that are wrong in the main stream dental professions are:

1- mercury-filled amalgams,
2- root canals
3- any sort of dental filling material imaginable

It’s a good idea to remove existing root canals and to definitely avoid getting any new ones. Once a tooth is removed the empty space where the tooth was will be filled up with bone in due time.

Dentists say that a root canal allows one to hold on to their tooth -> Comment: a dead tooth.

Dentists will also tell you that bacteria wont be an issue, this is incorrect. Studies on thousands of teeth have demonstrated the presence of bacteria in 80% to 90% of the canals after they have been “sterilized.” -> I know an oral surgeon that removes root canals, she said they always smell bad, look bad and are infected!

Root canals are very profitable to the dentists.

“Modern testing procedures have confirmed the work of Dr. Weston Price’s research using DNA analysis, making any claim by the ADA that Price’s research being “outdated,” is an attempt to keep the public blind over the real dangers of root canals.”

“Dr. Josef Issels of Germany found that in his 40 years of treating terminal, end-stage cancer patients, 97% of them had root canals. He would not initiate his successful treatments until all root canals had been removed.”

“According to Dr. Weston Price, the primary bacteria found in root canals includes streptococcus, staphylococcus, and spirochetes. He found 90% of the bacteria in the teeth that produced the patients’ acute diseases were streptococcus and 65.5% of the time they belonged to the fecalis family. ”

This bacteria, enters the blood stream and travels to organs or tissue. -> Comment: This bacteria is extremely toxic, many times over, anaerobic bacteria have been found and identified in and around root canals.

Billions of bacteria live in and around root canals, they create the most toxic organic substances known such as “thio-ethers” these are 1000 times more toxic than botulism toxin, which used to be considered the most toxic organic substance.

“Mercury is the second most toxic substance on the planet, next to plutonium. When mercury or other dental filling material exchanges with bacteria, the harm becomes magnified.”

“The Toxic Element Research Foundation, headed by Dr. Hal Huggins has uncovered extremely disturbing data concerning the implications of root canal bacteria and various autoimmune diseases.”  This information, like many new and enlightening scientific discoveries throughout history has been ignored by mainstream dentists.

Know that “most dentists are ill-equipped in the removal of both amalgams and root canals.” Upon the removal of root canals, it is suggested by Dr. Hal Huggins to have a treatment of intravenous ascorbic acid (vitamin C) to help kill of the microbes.

To remove amalgam fillings, a special dentist should be found that specializes in this. Incorrect removal, residual toxicity can result. -> Comment: Most dentists that are not equipped will refuse to remove the amalgam since it is considered “toxic” and if they remove it without proper measure they will risk being poisoned themselves.

Root Canals, Nickle Braces, Crowns and Dentures Linked to Heart Attacks and Cancer!

October 17th, 2010 No comments

Nickel_chunkBelow you find must-know information that your dentist probably wont share with you. Educate yourself before you meet the dentist. Most of the dentists will answer your question int he same fashion claiming that root canals are safe, that nickle is not an issue, that amalgams in your mouth are not toxic, etc..

You gotta wonder why the main stream doctors are so .. docile. Is it simple ignorance, is it the result of an education system that teaches people to memorize and not question, are the dentists too busy working they don’t have time for personal research, maybe they lack motivation to research new findings, or maybe it is a convenient oversight when it comes to them making more money vs. speaking out against the “norms”.

Dr Hal Huggins, D.D.S.

in a lecture to the

Cancer Control Society 1993.

Tape 93F014. Cancer Control Society, 2043 N. Berendo St, LA, CA 90027. Ph: 213 663 7801.

Dr Huggins, D.D.S:

“More than 75% of the crowns placed today are nickel, and that is present in braces. Here we call it stainless steel. It is like silver fillings, it doesn’t have much silver in it, and you would pay for silver and gold what you wouldn’t pay for mercury. So it kind of boils down to a matter of salesmanship, and stainless steel sound pretty prestigious, so they put that in children, and what happens? You see teenage behaviour that may not have been there a few days before the braces were put on.

At the University of Colorado when I was nearly 50 years old I went back to take a degree in immunology because I could see I was affecting the immune system. The first case we studied, we took a woman and put braces on her, and I am kind of sensitive to immunology, I studied it for 4 years, and about 2 weeks after that I only knew about 2% of what was going on in immunology, it is a field that is expanding very rapidly, but a term I hear many people saying is – you know this product it boosts your immune system. How does it do that? What does it do to the T4′s and the T 8′s?-.when you can study the cells of the immune system with the sophisticated equipment we have, and we can find that in this case I put the braces in. We did all the sophisticated testing, we put the braces in, and then the patients ends up with big bruises on her thigh. How did they get there? Well, a little sloppy dentistry, but these are huge bruises, no trauma involved there. Emotional things, a lot of change. Sleeping patterns, the first thing to change in an immunological challenge? Yes, big changes there. Things begin to look a little uncomfortable by day 3 so we took the conventional blood test, and what did I find? Nothing I could identify at that time, but this was 10 years ago. Today I could identify it, then I couldn’t, but things were still getting worse, and that afternoon we did the T subsets over again and what did we find? Immune system shutdown. I mean the T4′s were zero, the T8′s were zero, T11′s were zero. All of these things may not have a lot of meaning, but I can tell you zero is not where they should be. Within a few hours of death. We decided maybe we better take the braces off. The patients was for it, the faculty was for it, I was for it, I mean this was my wife we are talking about so it is not a real scientific case. So we took the braces off and the immune system came back-in 3 moths we were almost half way back where we were 3 days before. It does not recover overnight.

And I have other records on my desk where they did not take the braces off on the fourth day, and the reports show the same changes in the white blood cells, the same changes in the red blood cells, the same changes in the body temperature, everything is identical except when we get to day 4 and the braces were not removed, that was the last date that was entered on the autopsy reports, because these kids died, as they can with what is called the chrome crowns. That is a cutesy little term, chrome crowns, but these kids, I see them in the airport all the time – and I see little kids with tri-focals on, glasses about that thick. When did you have your chrome crown placed? I see people pushing along in a wheelchair. I wonder when did you have your root canal done? Because root canals so far have turned out to be one of the most vile things that I have ever run into, and my life for the last 20 years has been with a lot of vile essense

In California we found a woman who had some nickel crowns placed, she ended up with a specific type of breast tumour and she went through the lumpectomy, she went to the support group afterwards, and she said to me you know my husband was talking to this guy out in Colorado about nickel being carcinogenic.

What does that mean?

That mean it produces cancer.

Do you suppose there is any relationship between my crowns and my breast tumour?

Another woman in the group said – well I went to Dr So and So dentist down the street here.

Root Canal Dangers and Cover-Up :: Interview with Dr. George Meining, D.D.S.

October 16th, 2010 No comments

RootCanal

About sixty years ago, Dr. Meinig was one of the founders of the American Association of Endodontists (root canal specialists).  Naturally, he has filled his share of root canals and when he wasn’t filling canals himself, he was teaching the technique to dentists across the country at weekend seminars and clinics.

He offered the world his experienced perspective on root canals exposing their latent dangers. About six years ago, having recently retired, he decided to read all 1174 pages of the detailed research of Dr. Weston Price, (D.D.S).

Upon reading these papers Dr. Meinig was startled and shocked. They provided valid documentation of systemic illnesses resulting from latent infections lingering in filled roots.

Dr. Meinig has since written a book entitled “Root Canal Cover-Up EXPOSED – Many Illnesses Result”, and has devoted himself to radio, TV, and personal appearances before groups in an attempt to blow the whistle and alert the public.

This is one interview with him:

:: note: this interview is re-posted here for archival purposes. The source is found at the end of the interview ::

Root Canals Pose Health Threat

MJ Please explain what the problem is with root canal therapy.

GM First, let me note that my book is based on Dr. Weston Price’s twenty-five years of careful, impeccable research. He led a 60-man team of researchers whose findings – suppressed until now rank right up there with the greatest medical discoveries of all time. This is not the usual medical story of a prolonged search for the difficult-to-find causative agent of some devastating disease. Rather, it’s the story of how a “cast of millions” (of bacteria) become entrenched inside the structure of teeth and end up causing the largest number of diseases ever traced to a single source.

MJ What diseases? Can you give us some examples?

GM Yes, a high percentage of chronic degenerative diseases can originate from root filled teeth. The most frequent were heart and circulatory diseases and he found 16 different causative agents for these. The next most common diseases were those of the joints, arthritis and rheumatism. In third place – but almost tied for second – were diseases of the brain and nervous system. After that, any disease you can name might (and in some cases has) come from root filled teeth.

Let me tell you about the research itself. Dr. Price undertook his investigations in 1900. He continued until 1925, and published his work in two volumes in 1923. In 1915 the National Dental Association (which changed its name a few years later to The American Dental Association) was so impressed with his work that they appointed Dr. Price their first Research Director. His Advisory Board read like a Who’s Who in medicine and dentistry for that era. They represented the fields of bacteriology, pathology, rheumatology, surgery, chemistry, and cardiology.

At one point in his writings Dr. Price made this observation: “Dr. Frank Billings (M.D.), probably more than any other American internist, is due credit for the early recognition of the importance of streptococcal focal infections in systemic involvements.”

What’s really unfortunate here is that very valuable information was covered up and totally buried some 70 years ago by a minority group of autocratic doctors who just didn’t believe or couldn’t grasp – the focal infection theory.

MJ What is the “focal infection” theory?

Cure Tooth Decay – Heal and Prevent Cavities with Nutrition

September 11th, 2009 1 comment

On 09/09/09 I wrote an article titled Diet and Fish Oil to Prevent Tooth Decay? where I referenced a discussion in the community forum titled ‘Fish Oil to Prevent Tooth Decay?‘.

I’ve just researched the book Cure Tooth Decay: Heal and Prevent Cavities with Nutrition (First Edition). I was impressed by the comments that I ordered a copy of this book from Amazon a few hours ago. The user reviews were very encouraging that I decided  the book was worth reading and perhaps trying out some of its tips. I am of the belief that every idea is worth examining, and that usually, the most effective and correct solutions are the simplest ones, this applies to math, physics, engineering as well as it applies to the human body and health, common sense, isn’t it?

I’ve had my share of dental issues as a kid, I remember having many teeth extracted, as an adult these dental issues kept haunting me. It didn’t make sense because I followed the rules, I brushed and ate well and used mouth wash. I look forward to reading this book.

Here’s some info about the book, based on the Amazon comments I read. The book follows on a trail-blazing dentist, Weston Price. The book outlines mistakes of the western society when it comes to food, it discusses how primitive cultures in the 1930′s (now largely decimated by modernization) had remained immune to tooth decay.

Besides research done by Dr. Weston Price, Nagel draws on personal experience and his child’s. The book has a substantial section devoted solely to children’s diets and the connection to their healthy teeth.

It makes sense that health at large effects the health of teeth, if you are in poor health your teeth will undoubtedly suffer. The book discusses how dental health may actually be an indicator of overall wellness.

This sounds like simple common sense to me.

Here’s a quote:

“Years ago, when people were afflicted with various types of ailments and diseases, it was common practice to blame evil spirits. People of the world still do this today, except that these evil spirits now have a new name. Sci entists, doctors, dentists, and government officials have decided that these new ‘evil spirits’ are called micro-organisms (viruses, bacteria, etc.)… The current theory of tooth decay is more like a superstition than a scientifically verified truth… The theory that bacteria thrive on sucrose, and then produce acids that eat away our tooth enamel, seems to be convincing. But it defies both science and logic… A daily mouthwash of some anti-bacterial agent would cure all cavities, if the bacterial theory were true. The answer is clear: what you have been told about tooth decay is a pure, sweet, child-like fantasy.”
~ Ramiel Nagel, “Cure Tooth Decay”

Holistic Dentistry Tooth Extraction Vs. A Conventional Root Canal

November 27th, 2008 13 comments

Most holistic dentists prefer to extract a tooth than to do a root canal mainly because they believe root canals are never a 100% sterile and bacteria left behind could flourish if your immune system is compromised. My (non-holistic) dentist said that 95% o root canals are successful, this leaves 5% of root canals to fail. If they fail, an infection can occur at the bone structure that may not be easily detectable.

I found that not all holistic dentists have this position, almost none of the traditional dentists prefer extraction over a root canal. Over 95% of root canals are successful. So many people have had root canals, multiple of them. These root canal procedures are done routinely and safely. However, just because every body else is doing something doesn’t mean that it’s the best choice. For instance, take drinking pop, or using cell phones, eating fast food, eating lots of meat, smoking, getting drunk, need I continue?.. Many people take actions that negatively impact their well being for whatever reasons, be it lack of information, disinformation, ignorance, lack of interest, etc…

Here, in trying to decide if root canals are good or bad, IMHO (In my humble opinion), we are faced with a lack of information, making deciding what’s best a little tricky. I shared what I know here and ask you to contribute what you know so we can all benefit.
