Background

The idea that cancer results from damage to DNA in the cell nucleus does not explain the cancers we are seeing. This is because we now know that cancer is NOT a problem of the nucleus but is a problem of the cytoplasm. A classic experiment looked at cancer cells and normal cells in culture. If you take nuclei of cancers and place them in normal cell cytoplasm (where mitochondria live) the cells remain normal. If you take the nuclei of normal cells and place them in cancer cell cytoplasm the cells stay cancerous.

This tells us that the important factor in the cytoplasm is mitochondria (my favourite subject!). Mitochondria are responsible for the production of energy using oxygen and the efficiency of this controls cell division and cell suicide. The heart is metabolically active, 24/7, with many mitochondria – cancer of the heart is very rare.

The importance of mitochondrial function in this area has recently been confirmed in Mitochondrial Correction - A New Therapeutic Paradigm for Cancer and Degenerative Disease

If cell division control mechanisms are lost then a cancer is born. At any one moment we ALL have between 500 and 1000 cancerous cells in the bloodstream – we need a good immune system to recognise these as baddies and kill ‘em.

We also know that all cancers have an infectious driver. Prevent and treat that infection and you prevent and treat that cancer. Only this theory of infection explains the ten hallmarks of cancer (which also apply to infection) vis:

  1. uncontrolled cell growth
  2. resistance to anti-growth signals
  3. evasion of cell death signals
  4. limitless replication
  5. extended blood vessel growth
  6. invasion of local tissue and metastasis
  7. abnormal metabolic pathways (Warburg effect)
  8. evasion of the immune system
  9. genome instability (DNA damage)
  10. inflammation

[Ref chapter 10 of “The Cancer Resolution” to evidence base the above]

Which infection?

Lintern argues powerfully in chapter 11 of his book that the greatest single cause is yeast and fungi and this explains the hallmarks above.
Reasons include:

  • Fungi drive all ten hallmarks of cancer
  • Fungi thrive on dead tissues (and “dead” molecules). If an animal or plant is killed by the fungus then all returns to soil – which is largely composed of fungi!
  • Fungi and yeast are more closely related to animal cells than any other microbe – they are better able to make themselves at home in animal cells than bacteria or viruses can.
  • They readily flip from one form to another – hyphal to procreate and invade (when conditions are good), cystic to survive within cells (when conditions are harsh). Once in the body they survive well and remain long term.
  • Within cells they cannot be “seen” by the immune system. Fungi are intelligent and have evolved mechanisms to make the immune system ignore them.

Some of the evidence that cancer has a fungal driver

  • 97% of cancer cells have a fungus within. It is estimated that we only know of 15% of all fungi (an estimated 2.2 to 3.8 million species exist) – it may be the remaining 3% of cancer cells contain unknown fungi.
  • All fungi produced fungal toxin called mycotoxins – many are known carcinogens such as aflatoxin and gliotoxin
  • Fungi are immunosuppressive – they switch off the immune system’s attempts to kill it
  • Both fungi and cancer cells love sugar! Both are fuelled by sugar. Fungal cell walls are made from sugar.
  • Many anti-cancer drugs are also antifungal
  • Fungi get into the body via epithelial cells which line the internal and external surfaces of the body. 85% of all cancer start in such cells and are called carcinomas (stomach, bowel, lung, skin, breast, kidney, bladder, ovary, prostate, uterus, cervix etc). By contrast, primary cancers of the “deep” tissues like muscle, bone, (sarcoma) , blood and bone marrow (leukaemias), immune system (lymphomas) and brain make up 15% of cancers.
  • Fungi produce mycotoxins which are designed to kill competitors (many mycotoxins are antibiotic) AND to allow them to spread further through the body. Mycotoxins stimulate EGFR growth factors (stimulate growth), angiogenesis (new blood vessels to feed new fungal growth and so new cancer growth), leaky cells and loss of adhesion (to promote spread of fungi and of course metastasis of cancers), block healing and repair (to stop the immune system “blocking” invasion of fungi and cancers).
  • We only have a few tests for fungi but we know of at least 600 fungal pathogens know to drive disease in humans. Much of this goes unrecognised

Read the books for MUCH more evidence

Once we have an understanding of the MECHANISMS by which cancers form, we can put in place strategies to PREVENT and TREAT.

PREVENT cancer

What Why How to avoid
Diabetes and high carbohydrate diets. High blood sugar – which feeds cancer cells AND fungi. PK diet: low carb, high fibre, normal protein, make up calories with saturated fats (for cooking).See The Paleo Ketogenic Diet - this is a diet which we all should follow.

Time restricted eating (consume foods within a 6 hour window).
If you think you are eating healthily then check with two weeks of continuous glucose monitoring eg Abbott freestyle libre. Levels should remain between 4.0 and 6.8mmol/l. Any rises above should return to range within minutes. Cost £54.
See Abbott Freestyle Libre 2 Sensor for diabetes monitoring CGM

Slow the rate of blood sugar rises during eating. Eat food slowly – do not gobble it – chew thoroughly before swallowing.

Eat in the right order – first eat the salad, green veg, pulses, then meat and fat, then any carbohydrates last.

Insulin resistance. Improve insulin sensitivity with benfotiamine 1 gram daily, chromium 500mcgms, Acetyl L carnitine 500mgs. See My Sales Website for good suppliers of all these supplements, and others.

Cut out ALL processed foods high in seed oils (sunflower, safflower, rape seed, corn oil etc).
The only safe fats and oils are animals fats (such as beef and pork lard, butter) and saturated fats (coconut, cocoa, butter, palm oil) and mono unsaturates (cold pressed pure olive oil).

Being overweight. Often results from high blood sugar. Ditto above.
Fat is pro-inflammatory – this creates molecules in an oxidised state and this provides food for fungi. Lose weight but NOT by calorie restriction – for effective and permanent weight loss read “Why we eat too much” by Andrew Jenkinson - see my book review - Why we eat too much – the new science of appetite by Dr Andrew Jenkinson - book review.
Dairy products. Milk protein is growth promoting. The only safe dairy product is butter (so long as no dairy allergy!) - see The Paleo Ketogenic Diet - PK Dairy.
Addictions. Sugar, alcohol, smoking. One addiction switches on another – use occasionally to enhance a jolly, then get back on the wagon.
Micronutrient deficiencies. These are inevitable with Western systems of agriculture and diet. Take supplements daily:

A good Multivitamin and Minerals product - eg Multivitamins & Minerals by BioCare.
Vitamin D 10,000iu - see Vitamin D3 NOW 10,000 iu 120 Softgels
Vitamin C 5 grams - see Ascorbic Acid powder.
Lugol’s iodine 15% 3 drops - see Lugol's Iodine 15% 30ml.
Fish oil – must be filtered to get rid of pesticides and toxic metals - see Vegepa PURE EPA OMEGA-3

Lack of exercise. Exercise burns off blood sugar (and this starves out the fungi and cancer). Two sorts of exercise.

Anaerobic press-ups (x 30) and squats (x 30) per day to stay strong.
Aerobic to burn off sugar eg walking, gardening. Do this after a meal – blood sugar comes down rapidly.

Three meals a day. Cancer cells and fungi need a regular supply of sugar. If fungi are starved of then they retreat to their cystic, non-invasive forms. Intermittent fasting – daily time restricted eating (eg consume all food within a 6 hour window). See The Paleo Ketogenic Diet - what to eat, being in ketosis, macros and fasting.

Episodic fasts eg one 24 hour fast every month
A few days fasting every year

Once in ketosis, then 16 hours of intermittent fasting switches on “self -eating” or autophagy and this gobbles up cancer cells and infections. Ditto above.
Stress. Stress hormones increase blood sugar levels. Identify (rather than deny!) your stressors. Professional help often essential!
There is often a sugar peak on rising when the adrenal gland is naturally active. Skip breakfast.
Be happy. The happy brain makes for a happy immune system so that infections are effectively targeted and eliminated. Love and be loved – now my daughters have left home I have my scruffy, Patterdale terrier to keep me sane.
Have good reason for life – be an effective and good member of your Tribe.
Toxins in food. Produce free radical stress. Eat organic, fresh, frozen or tinned.
Processed food is full of “dead” molecules, sugar, trans fats, too many omega 6 oils. Avoid processed foods – signs of these include:

Foods with a long shelf life.
More than 4 ingredients.
Ingredients have names that your grandmother would not recognise.

Lack of sunshine (full spectrum light: visible light, ultraviolet and infrared). Sunshine generates vitamin D production in the skin.

Ultra violet kills infections.
Infrared detoxes through its warming effect.
Full spectrum light prevents depression and a happy brain makes for a happy immune system.
Sunshine warms us and heat kills infection

Get as much sunshine as you can without burning the skin.

Use full spectrum, bright light bulbs.
Do not use sunscreens (which are carcinogenic).
Keep warm.
Take vitamin D 10,000iu daily - see Vitamin D3 NOW 10,000 iu 120 Softgels.

Sleep. We all need 7-9 hours’ sleep – more in the winter when we semi-hibernate. Follow the sun – sleep in the dark, during the dark!
Abnormal microbiome. Upper fermenting gut (which is not normal). Starve out microbes with PK diet - see The Paleo Ketogenic Diet - this is a diet which we all should follow.

Kill them with vitamin C and iodine - see
Vitamin C - learn to use this vital tool well – the key is getting the dose right.
Iodine - another vital multitasking tool that should be a household word.
Ascorbic Acid powder.
Lugol's Iodine 15% 30ml.
Easy Saltpipe by Cisca

Lower fermenting gut (which needs diversity and that is created by diverse diet).

Abnormal microbiome drives inflammation in the gut eg ulcerative colitis – due to abnormal microbiome which greatly increases risk of colon cancer.

High fibre PK diet - see The Paleo Ketogenic Diet - this is a diet which we all should follow.

Aim to consume at least 30 different foods per week – the more diversity the better.
Consume probiotics in fermented foods (to further inoculate the microbiome) - see Probiotics - we should all be taking these all the time and double the dose following antibiotics and gastroenteritis.

Avoid infections. Infection drives cancer! Apply Groundhog Acute at the first hint of any symptoms.

See Groundhog ACUTE - put in place at the first sign of any infection.
See My book The Infection Game - life is an arms race.

Get rid of chronic infection from tuberculosis, HIV, Lyme disease, hepatitis B, herpes viruses. Avoid infection. See below.
Fungal infections (see above). This often starts with the upper fermenting gut (reflux, heartburn, “hiatus hernia”, burping, indigestion, fullness after meals, pain and more). PK diet, vitamin C 5 grams by day and Lugol’s iodine 15% 3 drops at night.

See Ascorbic Acid powder.
See Lugol's Iodine 15% 30ml.
See The Paleo Ketogenic Diet - this is a diet which we all should follow.

Avoid inflammation. Inflammation which results from tissue damage (eg smoking, vaccines, injuries, radiation, chemical toxicity, 5G, heavy metals) which creates free radicals which drives oxidative stress. Avoid.
Do detox regimes to get rid:

Heating regimes (for pesticides and volatile organics).
Chelation (for toxic metals).
See Detoxification - an overview
See My book Ecological Medicine - The Antidote to Big Pharma and Fast Foods

Energy. The immune system needs energy for cancer surveillance and killing infections.

Energy levels decline with age so we have to work harder at energy delivery mechanisms.

(1) - PK diet - see The Paleo Ketogenic Diet - this is a diet which we all should follow.

(2) -Sort the underactive thyroid and address adrenal fatigue - see My Book - The Underactive Thyroid - Do it yourself because your doctor won't and Conducting the CFS orchestra How to put yourself in charge.
(3) - Look after your mitochondria - see Diagnosis and Treatment of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Myalgic Encephalitis and Long-Covid (3rd Edition)
For mitochondria to work well they need:
---the right fuel in the tank ie ketones (PK diet),
---the raw materials to work (magnesium 300mgs (and vit D 10,000iu for its absorption), co Q 10 100mgs niacinamide 1500mgs, AL carnitine 1 gram) and gel or 4th phase water to hold molecules in the correct 3D space for the efficient generation of the energy molecule ATP - see Mitochondrial Supplements Package,
---oxygen - see Chapter 6 of Diagnosis and Treatment of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Myalgic Encephalitis and Long-Covid (3rd Edition),
---freedom from toxic stress (products of the upper fermenting gut, toxic metals, pesticides and VOCs, electromagnetic radiation),
---thyroid accelerator pedal and adrenal gearbox to work well - see My Book - The Underactive Thyroid - Do it yourself because your doctor won't and Conducting the CFS orchestra How to put yourself in charge.

Immuno-suppressive drugs. …..for auto-immunity, organ transplants and cancer: steroids, cancer chemotherapy increases cancer risk up to 20 fold.

Immuno-suppression is accompanied by fungal infection.

The major driver of auto-immunity is vaccines.
Covid 19 mRNA shots switch off cancer surveillance and generate “turbo” cancers. See ‘Spikeopathy’: COVID-19 Spike Protein Is Pathogenic, from Both Virus and Vaccine mRNA
Being male. The life expectancy of men is less that women. Why? They only have one X chromosome and many of the codes for immune function reside on X chromosomes (women have two X chromosomes so a defect in one is compensated for by t’other). Stay strong (this increases basal metabolic rate and burns off sugar in the blood stream)
...and testosterone. Testosterone is immunosuppressive. Do not use drugs to body build.
Growth promoting drugs. The Pill and HRT are major risk factors for cancers of the breast, womb, cervix and ovary.

We know the Pill and HRT are risk factors for fungal infection. For example see Yeast Infections Linked To Hormone Replacement Therapy

Do not use the Pill or HRT - see The serious complications of taking the Pill and HRT
Radiation. The major source of radiation is that used for medical imaging: X rays, CT scans. PET scans and radiation for cancer. Always ask how any such investigation will impact on treatment - is it really necessary?
Nuclear power stations that leak radioactivity. If you live nearby , check with a Geiger counter- see CHNADKS Geiger Counter
Radon gas. Check a map for sites of radon.

House foundations need a radon barrier membrane.
See UK maps of radon

1G, 2G, 3G, 4G, 5G represent increasing strengths of radiation.

They are all carcinogenic.
They all damage living cells by stealing electrons.

Do your best to avoid.

See 5G – the WHAT the WHY and the HOW.

Deuterium in water (one hydrogen ion has an extra neutron). A deuterium is heavier than a normal water molecule - so it does not work well in the body - it clogs up normal metabolism so energy delivery is slowed as are other processes. It is naturally present in drinking water at about 150ppm. As plants absorb water, some of the deuterium is filtered out.
So consume as much water as possible from eating fresh or frozen meat, vegetables and berries.
Juicing and smoothies ideal! See Fermenting gut - the Full Monty for juicing ideas.

Fat is naturally very low in deuterium – use this to fuel mitochondria

Deuterium is important!

Perhaps the most complicated molecule that is most essential to life is ATP synthase. There are around 32,000 of these nanomotors per mitochondrion and cells contain thousands of mitochondria. To generate ATP, ATP synthase spins at 9,000 rotations per minute, faster than a jet engine. This is highly dependent on gel water to hold atoms in the perfect 3D space. Gel water is broken down by deuterium. The reason why energy generation is so complex is because it has much to do with weeding out deuterium before it gets to ATP synthase (the final step of ATP creation).

So what can we do to reduce deuterium in the body?

There is a lot of it about! Drinking water contains 148-152 ppm, deuterium is the most abundant ion in plasma with levels 5 times higher than calcium and 10-18 times higher than magnesium.
The following statistics all show just how much deuterium there is within the body -

  • Most drinking water has between 148 ppm and 152 ppm of deuterium
  • Spring waters can be as low as 140 ppm
  • It is believed humans evolved when levels were 130 ppm
  • Serum calcium 2.24 -2.74 mmol/l
  • Serum magnesium 0.75 - 1.2 mmol/l
  • Serum glucose 3.3 -5.1 mmol/l
  • Deuterium 12 -14 mmol/l

Deuterium depletion by:

What Why What to do
Burning fuel to make energy has 10 incredibly complex steps: scientists have long asked why. Dr. Laslo Boros, one of the greatest deuterium experts in the world, explains: “Glucose has 12 hydrogens - before they get to the mitochondria, they all have to be checked not to have deuterium, which can use glucose as a Trojan horse. It’s a hydrogen/deuterium exchange system, and this is why it takes so many steps.” Deuterium damages ATP synthase – it is twice as heavy as hydrogen so it can substitute in any chemical reaction but alters the outcome of such.

ATP synthase is a proton pump – in one human, it processes 1,910 gallons of water worth of protons daily

Eat a ketogenic diet – this is a deuterium depleted diet - see The Paleo Ketogenic Diet - this is a diet which we all should follow
Fat is low in deuterium (high in carbon, low in hydrogen).

Carbs have relatively more hydrogen.

Because this is make in living creatures in which deuterium depletion has taken place Lard is 116ppm.

Butter is 124ppm.
Olive oil, avocado 130ppm,

Plants filter out deuterium in their chloroplasts. Deuterium is damaging to plants too! Eat vegetables, nuts and seeds.

Eat grass fed meat.
Eat fish and eggs.

Flavoproteins …. …..preferentially bind hydrogen over deuterium Take riboflavin (vitamin B2).

Bioflavonoids in plants

Niacin, co Q 10, quercetin. Ditto. Take niacin, Co Q 10 and quercetin.
Drink deuterium depleted water. Of proven benefit in treating cancer - see, for example, Blocking the Increase of Intracellular Deuterium Concentration Prevents the Expression of Cancer-Related Genes, Tumor Development, and Tumor Recurrence in Cancer Patients which states that "deuterium-depleted water (DDW) with 30 ppm D as drinking water prevented tumor development." Deuterium reduced water PREVENTA

The overall strategy to treat cancer

Most people of course do not do the above until it is too late! They get cancer. So how do we TREAT cancer.

The overall strategy to treat cancer:
– this is a war not a battle
– the aim is to reduce the tumour burden so that the immune system can get ahead of the game.
We do this by:

  • Starving out the cancer cells and fungi
  • Kill the cancer cells and fungi with antimicrobials that do not kill healthy cells

There are 4 things to do:

  1. FIRST reduce the tumour load.
  2. SECOND STARVE OUT the cancer really well.
  3. THIRDLY KILL infections and cancer cells with vitamin C and others.
  4. FOURTHLY use anti-fungal interventions in a cyclical manner, or in combination, to kill fungi in the body.

These stages are laid out in detail below.

FIRST REDUCE THE TUMOUR LOAD

Why How ............in order of importance
FIRST reduce the tumour load. By the time you have a cancer diagnosis there will be billions of cancer cells so yes, initially…. ….you will need surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy to reduce this initial load. At first this will work really well.
But what kills people is rarely the primary tumour, it is the secondary spread….. …..so move on to do all interventions below - and do them for life. This is for two reasons - firstly to reduce risk of recurrence and secondly to prevent another primary! Having had cancer once is a major risk factor for a second cancer for the same reasons that the first arose!
Get inspired! Read “Radical Remission” by Kelly Turner. This details the 9 essential interventions that people have used to reverse their late stage “incurable” cancers. These are:

1.Radically change diet (ie keto!)
2.Take control of your health.
3.Follow intuition.
4.Use herbs and supplements.
5.Releasing suppressed emotions.
6.Increasing positive emotions.
7.Embracing social support.
8.Deepening your spiritual connection.
9.Having strong reasons for living.

Do all the above (PREVENT cancer) DO THIS REALLY WELL – re-read the section above on PREVENT

SECONDLY STARVE OUT the cancer really well.

Why How ............in order of importance
SECOND STARVE OUT the cancer really well. Check you are doing the diet properly by measuring with a continuous glucose monitor ["CGM"] - see Abbott Freestyle Libre 2 Sensor for monitoring CGM
AND get into ketosis.

Monitor this with a ketone breath meter eg Ace Track - Acetrack Portable Ketone Breath Analyser
This gives the result in ppm (40ppm = 4mmol/l).
THEN use CGM to measure blood sugar – see link above.
You need to get the ratio of ketones to glucose between 1:1 and 2:1,
So if the blood sugar is 4mmol then your ketone reading should be 40ppm or above.
See “Cancer is a metabolic disease” by John Rockermeier

Combine this with intermittent fasting. Cancer cells are gobbled up by autophagy (or self eating). Time limited eating – consume all foods within a 6 hour window, possibly eat just once a day.

Do longer fasts eg 36 hours in every month.

The effects of all cancer therapies (surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy ) are enhanced when blood sugar is low because this starves out infections and cancers when they are most vulnerable).

Fast before, during and after any such treatments.

Drugs – we can use drugs to further lower blood glucose to starve out the cancer cells. Metformin 500mgs twice daily.

See Glycomet GP (500+1)mg - Metformin
BUT you must be keto adapted BEFORE you consider this AND monitor blood glucose with continuous glucose monitoring.
Berberine 500mgs three times daily. See Berberine, 500 mg, 120 Capsules

When infections and cancer cells are starved of sugar they can run on glutamine (an amino acid).

This is called anaplerosis.

Low glutamine/glutamate diet.

Eat a low protein diet for six days a week. During this time the body gets protein from autophagy (which gobbles up cancer cells) AND cancer cells are starved of glutamine.
Limit “unami” foods that are high in glutamate such as seaweeds, fermented soya, aged cheeses, kimchi, green tea, seafood and meat, tomato, marmite, oyster sauce.
Then one day a week have a high protein day to supply the immune system with the raw materials for healing and repair.

THIRDLY KILL infections and cancer cells with vitamin C and others

Why How ............in order of importance
THIRDLY KILL infections and cancer cells with vitamin C.

Vitamin C kills all infections

Vitamin C to bowel tolerance

That is -
Slowly increase the dose until you get a change in bowel movement.
Then maintain daily dose just below that which gave change in bowel movement.
Note - Vitamin C “looks” like sugar – cancer cells can only run on sugar - -so they will grab vitamin C instead and this kills them.
See Vitamin C - learn to use this vital tool well – the key is getting the dose right

Iodine kills all infections. Lugol’s iodine 15% 1 drop at night – build up to 10 drops.

Allow at least 2 hours between iodine and vitamin C.
See Iodine Treats and Prevents Cancer

Alkalising is “poor man’s chemotherapy”. …and neutralise with magnesium carbonate - the recipe is 2 parts AA to one part Mg carbonate by weight – this also give you a nice dose of magnesium!

See My Sales Website Magnesium Carbonate powder 80g
A heaped teaspoonful of Mg carb weighs about 2 grams.

Eat a low deuterium diet. See above: PK diet, juicing of vegetables.
Heat. Heat kills cancer cells

Start with Epsom salt baths – as hot as you can tolerate - see Minerals and vitamins delivered through the skin.
And/or try a sauna

Melatonin has multiple anti-tumour effects. Melatonin 10-50mgs at night , it is very safe.

See Melatonin, 10 mg, 120 Tablets

Retrain the immune system to focus its fire on the cancer cell. Remedy (depends on the tumour) – take one daily in strict numerical order.

I would suggest remedy C1 – start with 2 daily, aim for one daily. See Reprogram the immune system with micro-immunotherapy
Tip the contents of the capsule under the tongue and hold in the mouth for as long as possible.
No food or drink for 30 mins.
Take one on rising.
I can supply you with this but it is expensive – about £120 per month.

Feed the immune system the raw materials it needs to fight. Multivitamin,

Sunshine salt.
Vitamin D 10,000iu daily.
Vitamin C and iodine as above.
Multivitamins & Minerals by BioCare
Sunshine Salts
Vitamin D3 NOW 10,000 iu 120 Softgels
Ascorbic Acid powder
Lugol's Iodine 15% 30ml

Oxygen kills all tumours.

That is why we do not see cancer of the heart – it is well supplied with oxygen

Many people hyperventilate without realising. See Hyperventilation - makes you feel as if you can't get your breath

This impairs oxygen delivery to the tissues.
Do the breathing exercises in Chapter 6 of Diagnosis and Treatment of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Myalgic Encephalitis and Long-Covid (3rd Edition)

Switch on your mitochondria. If you suffer from fatigue then this may be very important

Improve energy delivery mechanisms.
See my book Diagnosis and Treatment of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Myalgic Encephalitis and Long-Covid (3rd Edition)

Monitor results with tumour markers. Ask the hospital to measure the relevant tumour markers.

The level of these is proportionate to the volume of tumour.
This tells us if we are winning or losing the War!
The hospital may have already done these – ask for a copy of all tests to see for yourself.

GENERAL APROACH TO KILLING CANCER

Why How ............in order of importance
WORTH REPEATING - Oxygen kills microbes and tumours.

That is why we do not see cancer of the heart – it is well supplied with oxygen.

Many people hyperventilate without realising. See Hyperventilation - makes you feel as if you can't get your breath

This impairs oxygen delivery to the tissues.
Do the breathing exercises in Chapter 6 of Diagnosis and Treatment of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Myalgic Encephalitis and Long-Covid (3rd Edition)

Hyperbaric oxygen is of proven benefit - see Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT)
Breathing oxygen from an oxygen concentrator may be helpful.
Deuterium. Consider deuterium depleted water (expensive – but has a good track record) – Preventa.

From Deuterium reduced water PREVENTA
See Deuterium Content in different foods and Deuterium Depletion
Get as much fluid into the body as is possible from juicing vegetables (as plants grow and take up water some of the deuterium is filtered out).

Statins - atorvastatin 20-80mgs daily. When fungi are deprived of sugar, lactate and glutamine they may be able to use fat as a fuel. Statins block this. However they also block production of co enzyme Q 10 so statins should always be accompanied by co Q 10 100mgs daily.

See Lipvas (Atorvastatin) 20 Mg Tablets

FOURTHLY use anti-fungal interventions

....in a cyclical manner, or in combination, to kill fungi in the body.

Anti fungal drugs are of proven effectiveness in cancer (again read The Cancer Resolution for references). Because there are so many different fungi and we do not know which fungus is associated with which cancer, it seems sensible to try different anti-fungal preparations in the hope that this will cover the ones implicated in your particular cancer. This explains why there is so much anecdotal evidence for the efficacy of various remedies which do not work for everybody! You really have to suck it and see.

Concentrate your fire

It may become obvious to you that one is working better than another in which case use this one to concentrate your fire. Intuition often helps here! Measuring cancer markers is very helpful as this tells you if you are winning or losing the war. The below suggestions are intrinsically safe.
KILL FUNGI – SPECIFICS – do the below in a 2-4 weekly rotation – stick with one you find is best (using intuition and cancer markers)

What How
Itraconazole 100mgs daily OR

Fluconazole 100mgs daily OR
Ketoconazole 200mgs

See Itaspor 100mg

BUT check liver tests at 1, 3 and 6 months (not necessary if only taking for one month at a time).

CBD oil kills fungi.

See Clinical Studies on Cannabis and cancer

The closer you can get to the whole plant extract with THC then the more effective this will be.

See CBD DOSAGE: HOW MUCH CBD SHOULD YOU BE TAKING?
Take this at night is often improves sleep quality.
Build up to at least 90mgs possibly 180mgs at night.

Mebendazole 100mgs daily. Normally used to treat worms but it has antifungal activity. This works like vincristine from the periwinkle plant – an vincristine is a recognised anti-cancer drug.

See Mebex 100mg

Fenbendazole is antitumour (very safe, low toxicity).

See Fenbendazole acts as a moderate microtubule destabilizing agent and causes cancer cell death by modulating multiple cellular pathways

Methylene blue. See Methylene Blue - clinical uses

Multiple beneficial actions!
Take at least 2mg/kg of body weight, perhaps more.

Doxycycline 100mgs daily. Antibiotic, antifungal.

May upset the microbiome so protect this by consuming at least 30 different foods a week.
See Dox T SL

Colloidal silver – dose at Colloidal Silver Dosages: Rule-of-Thumb Guidelines for Varying Conditions Based on Experiential Accounts The usual recommended dose as a nutritional supplement is 1 tspn to 1 tablespoon (5ml-20ml) daily depending on body weight.

However for an anti-fungal dose, anti infection dose you need 5 times this dose.
Use amber colloidal silver 14,000ppm (ug/l)
See UK Colloidal

Chlorine dioxide (aka MMS or ClO2) – this has broad spectrum antimicrobial activity.

Combine with DMSO for transdermal use

See Chlorine Dioxide - a useful antifungal
Mushrooms. Turkey tail three times daily – full pipette in water.

Reishi at night – full pipette x 2 in water.br> Chaga weekly - full pipette in water,
See Isle of Wight Mushroom Culture

Ivermectin See Ivermectin converts cold tumors hot and synergizes with immune checkpoint blockade for treatment of breast cancer

See Ivermectin reverses the drug resistance in cancer cells through EGFR/ERK/Akt/NF-κB pathwaybr> Possibly good for colon cancer - see Ivermectin has New Application in Inhibiting Colorectal Cancer Cell Growth

Artemisia. Purchase the dried herb and make a tea – 1 tspn of the raw herb with boiling water.

4 cups daily.
Also proven efficacy against malaria and other parasites. See Annual Mugfoot(Artemisia annua)Dried Plant 120g
