How To Deal with the Many Advertised Cancer Cures


by Mary W Maxwell, PhD (Politics), LLB

What’s a layperson to do when her Dad gets a diagnosis of cancer, and she goes to goes to the Internet and sees a wide range of testimonials about successful cures? How can anyone deal with this?  I recommend that she photocopy a few of the items she finds and demand an explanation from Dad’s doctor.  Everybody is afraid to do this, but why not try?

In 2013, Trine Day Press published my book entitled “Consider the Lilies: A Review of 18 Cures for Cancer and Their Legal Status.” The phrase ‘legal status’ meant something like “How likely is it that your doctor will be arrested if he prescribes this cure for you?” In other words, my book covers the scandal of cure-suppression. That’s its sad agenda.

Of course there is also a happy agenda: for many years, especially prior to 1940, there were physicians – some of them very eminent — who used good medical treatments for cancer. I refuse to call these ‘alternative medicine’; most are quite orthodox. Two-thirds of the 18 researchers in my book were MDs who dealt daily with patients. The full 18 are:

John Beard, DSc; Robert O Becker, MD; Johanna Budwig, PhD; Stanislaus Burzynski, MD, PhD; William Coley, MD; George Crile, Sr, MD; Max Gerson, MD; Thomas Glover, MD; Ryke Hamer, MD; Georges Lakhovsky; Robert Lincoln, MD; Virginia Livingston, MD; Evangelos Michelakis, MD; Gaston Naessens; Robert Olney, MD; John Ott; Emanuel Revici, MD; and Royal Rife.

For purposes of the current essay, I’m dropping 3 of those: Crile, who was a magnificent scientist but who let his cancer-cure idea go to seed, Naessens, whose cure ‘recipe’ has not been fully imparted to science, and Rife, whose ability to cure cancer depended on his special microscope, which is not now available.  That leaves 15 curers of my book’s original 18.

But I now add 5. These are: William Koch, MD, and Stevan Durovic, MD (in my book I said their cures were unpublished but I have since tracked them down), plus curers whose work I had described only in passing in Consider the Lilies: Dinshah Ghadiali, Bjorn Nordenstrom, MD, and Steven Kaali, MD.

Let me show you that the 20 cancer cures don’t represent 20 wild guesses. They can be categorized into four types according to what biological system the theorist is addressing. Roughly these are: bacterial, ‘central control of growth,’ metabolic, and energetic (or electric).

I ask you to assume, for argument’s sake, that all these scientists were conscientious, and that their patients really did get cured (at least a large percent did, including ones who were Beyond Hopeless). My book provides details of that.


Granted, not all doctors associate cancer with bacterial infection. (That’s the understatement of the week!) But a few doctors stumbled upon such an association. Here they are:

  1. William Coley, MD, as early as 1891, figured out how to make a person’s cancer go away by giving him a fever (!) He sometimes gave another disease (erysipelas) to cause this hyperthermia. The point is that, according to the bacterial theorists, cancer involves an infection of pathogenic microbes, and if you can kill them off, such as by heat, the patient will recover. Coley’s daughter, Helen Coley Nauts, spent years trying to get hospitals to look at her Dad’s thousands (!) of successful cures. To no avail. (See her A Review of the Influence of Bacterial Infection, 1953.)lloyd_j._old,_m.d2Helen Coley Nauts trying to persuade Lloyd Old, MD, to take an interest in her father’s cancer cure.
  1. Thomas Glover, MD, created a serum. Well, actually it may have been his lab assistant Tom Deaken who did it. Deaken saw that if you take material from a patient’s tumor and culture it in the lab you’ll be able to inject that into horses and later draw from the horse a serum that will cure the cancer. Glover passed this cure to a surgeon named MJ Scott who used it with great success in the 1920s. Glover himself worked for the US government and chose not to give his cure any publicity. See Mark Boesch, The Long Search for Truth about Cancer, 1960.
  1. Steven Kaali, MD’s cure (which he patented, yet denies!) is the basis of The Beck Protocol. Kaali’s patent reads “Electric current flow through the blood [can be done] at a magnitude that is … sufficient to render the bacteria, virus, parasites, and/or fungus ineffective to effect healthy cells.” You can read every patent at USPTO.gov. (Note: Bob Beck, a physicist, says on Youtube, that you can do the Kaali job without opening the body – just apply the electricity at your wrist. But I lack evidence that Beck did this successfully.) Kaali’s cure differs from Olney’s (below) which requires that UV light be applied to the blood.
  1. Virginia Livingston, MD, used a method called autogenous vaccine. She cultured the patient’s urine, which she says, contained the cancer microbe, and injected this back into the patient. (She used the superb research of William Crofton, MD, on this.) She also prescribed mandelamine, one gram four times a day, for some. Livingston trafficked in the forbidden idea of pleomorphism (bacteria morphing into viruses). She was unable to get her great cancer results published, or looked at by authorities. Finally, ‘they’ closed down her San Diego clinic. (Note: today John Majnarich, PhD, makes the vaccines, as is explained in Ed Addeo’s The Woman Who Cured Cancer, 2014).
  1. Robert Lincoln, MD, asked his patients in Medford, Massachusetts, to inhale macrophages. These are a type of creature that we all carry from birth in our immune system and which gobble up the undesirable bacteria and viruses, daily. (Lincoln died suddenly at age 54, and was the subject of an inquiry by Senator Tobey who also died suddenly.) In 2015 you can ask for the macrophage cancer-cure in Tblisi, Georgia.

Note: The fact that Coley, Livingston, Lincoln, and Glover cured many cancer patients raises the question Why did their anti-bacterial methods work? Could it be placebo effect? Perhaps, but Coley’s patients were often unconscious when he cured them with heat, so it can’t all be based on the power of positive thinking.

Resistance to new ideas is amazing. Alan Cantwell, MD, has been publishing photos, since 1968, of bacteria in cancerous tissue. He told me that if a colleague walks into his lab, and Alan says “Hey, look at this!” the visitor always refuses even to peer down the microscope. Does that tell you anything?


The recurring theme in this section is that life is self-regulating. Throughout history, humans got rid of their cancers without applying such external aids as radiation and chemotherapy drugs. Right? So it’s not crazy to examine nature for ways to do it.  (Reminder: My putting 20 cancer cures into 4 categories bacterial, central control,  metabolic, and energetic, is meant to call attention to the fact that there’s at least some rhyme or reason to the research at hand. It’s not hocus-pocus.)

  1. John Beard, a Scottish zoologist, compared many species. As early as 1911, he found that the original growth of an embryo depends on an unusual spurt. The chemicals that do that one-time job normally turn off during gestation, as soon as the pancreatic enzymes emerge. Therefore if we find that a person has an unhealthy spurt (cancer) later in life, we should call on that same substance to do the turning off. Beard’s idea of a pancreatic-enzyme cure was written up by CW Saleeby, MD, in The Conquest of Cancer, 1905. The cure was used by the dentist William Kelley on thousands of cancer patients (Kelly’s house got burned down), and is used by Nicholas Gonzalez, MD, in New York today. Gonzalez says he could have saved Steve Jobs’ life. See Gonzales What Went Wrong? (2013) as to how the government perverted a study of his cases.
  1. Robert O Becker, MD, an orthopedic surgeon, was trying to figure out if an amputated limb could be made to regenerate in humans, as is the case with salamanders. (Predictably, he lost his job at a VA Hospital.) Becker did not claim to have cured cancer as such, but he observed that cells that are already differentiated into serving a particular function can “de-differentiate.” (This is like stem cell – they become available to generate into something else.) His amazing book is The Body Electric (1985). Becker also presented a possible cancer cure, for which he had only one case, involving the use of colloidal silver.
  1. Stanislaus Burzynski, MD, PhD, from Poland, has had a movie made about his cure. It focuses on the gene that switches cancerous growth on and off. Our bodies develop bits of cancer all the time but natural means of controlling it set in automatically, such as via the P53 gene. Burzynski’s cancer cure, which is legal only in Texas, requires the patient to infuse such ‘anti-neoplastons’ directly into the groin. The success rate of 60% has now increased, especially for brain cancer. See Burzynski, the Movie, on Youtube.
  1. Stevan Durovic, MD, claimed to have found, by observing horses with facial fungus, that there is a substance, which he called krebiozen, that naturally controls cancerous growth. He said it’s made in the reticuloendothelial cells in the lymph nodes and spleen. He also believed that every cell contains what it needs for the regulation of replication. When krebiozen is deficient, there is an increase in anaerobic oxidation. Durovic was able to “bottle” krebiozen by taking it from horses, for humans. Andrew Ivy, MD, wrote up this cure in Observations of Krebiozen in the Management of Cancer (1956) – fascinating stuff.
  1. Ryke Hamer, MD, is the founder of the German New Medicine. He suffered testicular cancer and was able to cure himself when he realized that it was the trauma of his son’s death that had caused his cancer to begin. So this form of “control of cancerous growth” is carried out by a psychiatrist. Hamer, who has been in jail, claims huge success. He sued the Norwegian government for revoking his medical license. Isn’t it nice to see assertiveness cropping up where it should crop up?


Our section on Energetic could also encompass the material here. All animals and plants are constantly engaged in energy exchange. In humans we refer to the intake of food as part of metabolism. The food may end up as tissue or as ‘work.’

  1. Johanna Budwig, a biochemist in Germany, was the author of Flax Oil As a True Aid Against Arthritis, Heart Infarction, and Cancer (1953). The patient must eat flaxseed oil mixed with cottage cheese (in a 2-to-1 ratio). The oils are resonant with energy from the sun, and it helps if the patient lies in the sun. Oils can also be given topically or by enema. She claimed a 90% success rate, and could take people out of hospitals near the point of death and get them started on recovery merely by her special diet. Budwig discovered why Omega 3 fatty acids are good for metabolism: they have a double carbon bond.
  1. Max Gerson, MD, is well represented in Internet discussions of ‘alternative medicine.’ Yet there was never anything in his work that deviated from orthodoxy. Gerson had migraine headaches and a friend told him that a certain diet would help. It did. Is that alternative? Alternative to what? Nutrition used to be a normal part of medical school curricula until it was removed, in favor of concentrating on drugs as the proper therapy for everything. Who’s running the show here? Anyway, Gerson was a keen scientist who put his skills regarding diet to use in curing skin tuberculosis (100% cure rate), and then cancer. I have heard that his protocol is losing effectiveness as it is harder now to get any agricultural produce that resembles what our grandparents had. Note: Gerson could have been listed with the electric scholars below, as he once said: “Disease is the result of disorganized electrical forces…. We must discover how to organize these forces.”
  1. William Koch, MD, PhD, followed the basic principle of Otto Warburg, winner of the 1931 Nobel Prize, that a cancer cannot survive if there is a good supply of oxygen. Thus Koch wanted to transport O2 to the tumor area. He did this with a chemical that he called glyoxylide, of which the recipe has not been revealed. It is well accepted that cancer can survive anaerobically by using fermentation and this is apparently why cancer patients crave sugar. The cancer wants the sugar for its own nefarious metabolic purposes. Koch went to jail for his trouble. See Suzanne Caum’s book, Cancer Cures Crucified (1968).
  1. Evangelos Michelakis, MD, teaches in Alberta, Canada. That’s kind of a bad sign. I mean universities never employ a doctor with bold new status-quo-challenging ideas about cancer. So maybe the Michelakis cure, which uses DCA, dichloroacetate, is fake. On the other hand, it hasn’t been tested yet, so there’s been no need for his employer to ‘commit.’ (Just letting you see my sardonic approach to this subject, which I claim works very well for me in sorting out the cures!) The mitochondria in every cell play a basic role in metabolism. They also regulate ‘cell suicide,’ known as apoptosis. Michelakis could have been listed above in the section on Central Control. Naturally, cell suicide is a good thing if the cell is a cancer cell. Anyway, he was studying a pulmonary disease and found, in rats, that DCA helped restore apoptosis. Doctors can prescribe DCA today ‘off-label,’ as it has been approved for mitochondrial disease in children.
  1. Emanuel Revici, MD, came from Romania. He was known to cure AIDS in the USA before anti-retroviral drugs were manufactured. How did he do this? He recognized the crucial role of the lipid membrane in the metabolism of each cell. In cancer patients he was fascinated to find that the pH (measure of alkalinity) changed at 4am and 4pm every day, and that the tumor area had a different pH than the rest of the body! Revici learned how to cure cancer and put an end to cancer pain. His 1961 book is available online: Research in Physiopathology as a Basis of Guided Chemotherapy with Special Applications to Cancer. How about you read it and then look into the pernicious, not to mention pathetic, behavior of The American Cancer Society toward Revici. New York State revoked his medical license “for poor record-keeping.” Oh my.


In this category, the cause of cancer is seen to be some disruption of the electrical energy system of the body.

  1. Dinshah Ghadiali developed the 19th century work of Edwin Babbitt on the way in which a prism breaks light into colors: violet, blue, green, yellow, orange, red. Each color can by directed onto the body with a light and have a curative effect. The color for cancer is green. No joke. Ghadiali’s farm and his research equipment were destroyed in a fire. Today his son, Darius Dinshah (Let Their Be Light, 2007), answers phone-call questions about chromotherapy. You can buy Darius’s 7-hour DVD from wrf.org. I found it enjoyable.
  1. Georges Lakhovsky, an engineer, studied electro-magnetic forces in the cosmos. He believed each living cell gives off a unique frequency. These are usually in harmony, but some are not. He experimented with a geranium plant that had a tumor (The Secret of Life, 1935). The cure consisted of playing oscillating waves at it so that the deviant frequency would stop causing trouble. The geranium lived happily ever after. (Note: Lakhovsky met his end when struck by a limousine in New York.)
  1. Bjorn Nordenstrom, MD, a Swede, stated in his 1983 book, Biologically Closed Electric Circuits, that such circuits actually exist in the body and that they relate to acupuncture meridians (an idea currently being extended by Jerry Tennant, MD). Nordenstrom was able to cure a few, though not many, persons of lung cancer, by placing electrodes strategically in the tumor. (See my short Youtube video, reading rapturously from his book.)
  1. Robert Olney, MD’s cure is my reigning fave. He was taught by George Miley to remove a small amount of the person’s blood and pass it under UV light, then return it to the patient’s veins. All infection disappeared! See Miley’s many journal articles. Miley used UV light to cure bulbar polio in the 1940s. (Why was this cure never mentioned during the polio epidemic of the 1950s?) William Douglass, MD,’s book, Into the Light, q.v., recommends that doctors enhance the Olney-Miley method with intravenous hydrogen peroxide, for cancer.

Note: I am not trying to tell the full scientific theory of each man. You would need to read Olney to see that he knew there was more happening than the removal of infection. His application of UV light caused the whole body to get back into kilter. He cannot explain that.

  1. John Ott, the inventor of time-lapse photography, saw that different kinds of light on the spectrum, such as infrared or UV (ultraviolet), could affect the fertility of plants and animals, and also affected mood (Health and Life, 1973). Later he noticed that cancer can often be cured if the person stops wearing sunglasses! Those may cut out certain rays of the sun, depriving the body of part of the needed light spectrum. (Talk about a cheap cure!).

Thus ends my survey. It is not meant to be exhaustive. For instance, the other day I saw Tullio Simoncini, MD, claim, on Youtube, that cancer is fungus and is easily cured by sodium bicarbonate. I haven’t checked it out, so I can’t comment. There is also a 1951 book by Francis de Caux, MD, which relies on the discovery by Jules Samuels, MD, that the pituitary gland can determine cell respiration, and that a malfunction of the thyroid can throw the pituitary off. Looks honest to me.

Note: If I were to fit those two additional cures into the above list, Simoncini’s would belong in the section named “Bacterial,” which would perforce need to be renamed “Infection.”   De Caux’s theory (as given to him by Jules Samuels) may suit the category “Central Control of Growth,” but his cure consisted of shortwave treatment so it could just as well be categorized as “Electric.” What God hath wrought!

It’s possible that the various doctors above are all correct.  Cancer, which everyone agrees is uncontrolled growth of cells, may be provoked in many ways and may be shut down in many ways. That is far more plausible than what we were taught all our lives about ‘the demon cancer’ that pops into our body and needs to be chased down by hospital storm troopers.

So have a chat with your Dad’s doctor and don’t be bamboozled, OK? Enough is enough is EEE-NUF with the suppression of ordinary, successful, medical cancer cures.

  1. Seeking some expert input on this.
    It is a matter that must be addressed, the msm will not deal objectively with the consequences……advertising income?

  2. These big companies only care about money and profits they could get. They
    don’t care what will be the effect of their greediness to all the people
    and their surroundings what really causes cancer are all this preserve food
    they are making, how can a preserve food last for three months, i have been
    buying preserved food for my kids as a single father because i do not have
    enough time for my kids due to my job, then suddenly my first daughter feel
    sick and i quickly run a check on her and discovered she was diagnosed of
    cancer, as a Doctor i looked for cure but couldn’t find any my daughter
    started taking drugs like her whole life depends on it, it wasn’t working
    the cancer was still spreading i searched more on the internet i found a
    testimony on how it cured someone then .i copied the email immediately the
    emailricksimpsoncannabisoil41@gmail.com i wrote to this very email
    ricksimpsoncannabisoil41@gmail.com, in an hour i got a feedback asking me
    few questions, and enlightened me on how to get the oil in the next
    48hours, i placed my order and in the next 48hours the medication oil got
    to me in Nairobi Kenya immediately my daughter started using the oil, it
    been two months now, since my daughter has been using the medication oil
    and the cancerous problems are gone this very fact was clarified by me and
    other doctors
    i put up this piece of testimony for the sake of those once who need this
    oil to please don’t die in silence their is a cure for your cancer today
    email:ricksimpsoncannabisoil41@gmail.com and get the oil.
