I apologize that you have not heard from me for awhile. I have been laid up with a bum ankle. Today, I finally found a fabulous naturopath who diagnosed it correctly. It is caused by a parasite. I'm starting a thorough parasite cleanse -- colon, kidney, liver, etc. My M.D. had no clue despite ultra-sound, MRI, etc. The naturopath used a fascinating biofeedback computer program that identified every problem I have. There were only a few (an ear infection, lymph system clogged, acidity, elevated white blood cell count, swollen ankle) and they're all related to the parasite. The machine says I probably got it from eating fish. It even named the parasite -- "Anisakine Larvae." It also explained the two weeks of "shedding" about six layers of skin on my foot and ankle that had puzzled me.
Just a word to the wise. Don't accept your doctor's diagnosis unless it makes sense. He told me it was caused by a blood clot -- and used words like "phlebitis," "thrombosis," "peripheral vein inflammation," etc. None of those tracked with the symptoms I was having and didn't make sense to me. I'm delighted to know what it is and am starting on my cleansing program today. By the way, I'm using the one from Dr. Larry Clapp's book "Prostate Health in 90 Days." It's the best one I've seen.
Cancer Workshop in Asheville, September 15th, 2006
The August workshop I had planned on the 18th had to be postponed until my ankle got better. It's now better so I will be doing the workshop this Friday, September 15th.
Those of you within traveling distance of Asheville, North Carolina may want to attend. Entitled "Beating Cancer - Gently," this workshop has proven very popular here and around the country. I will explain what I believe cancer is and how to treat it successfully. The treatment also works for prevention, not just of cancer. Not surprisingly, a sound prevention routine prevents all degenerative conditions.
The workshop is free, as always. I do take up a "love offering" for Linda Myers, the wonderful lady who owns the facility where I present these workshops. It is located at 329 Merrimon Ave. in Asheville (about one mile North of I-240 on the right side of Merrimon). We start at 7:00 PM. We finish at 9:00 PM and I always reserve at least 40 minutes for questions, some of which I can usually answer. Hope to see you there.
HCG Test Poll Results
You may recall that on August 10th, I sent you an e-mail asking for some information on your experience with the HCG Urine Cancer Test from the Navarro Clinic in The Philippines. Many of you did just that. My idea was to determine if the results from this test were helping you establish a trend showing the effectiveness of your cancer treatment.
I got quite a variety of responses. First, I heard from Dr. Navarro who said that most of the results for cancer patients were in the "50's or 60's." He said the exceptions were a few testicular cancer patients where the results would be over 1,000. He said the test did not necessarily correlate with the staging (I through IV) of any cancer. They are useful, he said, as a "trend indicator." He recommends getting the tests at least 8 weeks apart.
He also said "False positive tests can be caused by steroidal medication or other hormonal medication, contamination by soap or other detergent or blood contamination of the urine. In 30% of diabetics with no cancer, a positive result may occur for which the explanation is not known. Patients with no cancer who smoke may also have positive results. Patients with strong family history [of cancer] but with no evidence of cancer can also have a positive reading.
My late father and I ascribe to the metabolic regimen that you espouse. Personally, of which I have been asked many times, I don't want to be treated with chemotherapy or radiation and will instead opt for the metabolic holistic regimen."
Many of you will remember Mauris Emeka, the cancer survivor from Washington state who has written two cancer books. In my July 30th, 2005 newsletter you can read some comments by Mauris on the HCG test. This time Mauris sent me a detailed account of his use of this test. I want to quote his e-mail because I think it will answer many of the questions I have received about this test. Here it is:
"Hi Bill, This is Mauris Emeka, author of 'Fear Cancer No More,' copyright 2002, and 'Cancer's Best Medicine,' copyright 2004. Thanks so very much for the work you're doing.
I'm very familiar with Dr. Navarro's HCG Urine Test. In the fall of 2004 I began experiencing occasional pain in the prostate area, my urine flow was constricted and sometimes painful. On September 18,2004 I sent a urine sample to Dr. Navarro in The Phillipines, and few days later I received the results of 54 (plus or minus 4). Dr. Navarro indicated that the results was in the positive range. Needless to say, this was cause for some concern. I started eating apricot kernels daily, about 5 to 10 a day. Then around November 10, 2004 I sent in another urine specimen; the results came back a few days later and it was still at 54 (plus or minus 4). I continued eating the apricot kernels, and around mid November I began eating 40 to 50 of them everyday (I would eat about 15 about the time of each meal and I continued that regimen until around late March 2005). Meanwhile, my symptoms of painful urine, etc. went away sometime around January 2005. I sent off a third urine sample to Dr. Navarro on January 7th. The results came back a few days later showing a reading of 51.4 (plus or minus 4). That was encouraging, so I continued the apricot kernels, 40 to 50 a day, and lots of fresh fruits and vegetables (especially papaya and enzyme rich papaya seeds). I sent off a fourth and final urine sample to Dr. Navarro on May 24, 2005, and the results came back as 49.8 (plus or minus 3). I found this last test results to be very encouraging. I stopped the high number of apricot kernels around late March, and started eating 5 to 10 a day. I still eat 5 to 10 apricot kernels almost every day, and I eat lima beans and black eye peas (cooked with turmeric, garlic, and ginger) several times a week because these legumes also contain the nitriloside substance that's found in such abundance in apricot kernels that has been found to destroy cancer cells. I am pleased to say that today I have NO symptoms of prostate problems.
Thank you, Mauris. Several of you who sent me the results of your first two tests (6 to 8 weeks apart) were concerned that the number did not change. As you can see from Mauris' account, patience is necessary. The results may not change much in the first 3-4 months. Also, a number which stays constant is encouraging. It means the cancer is not spreading.
Also, please note that these test results always give you a number with the range of error of "plus or minus four." So, even though the number may include "tenths" (e. g. 51.4), the only significance is the trend.
Dan sent me a spread sheet showing his history of prostate testing over the last six years. This included 5 HCG Urine tests starting in September, 2000. They ranged from 52.3 to 78.0. The most recent one was in November, 2005. It was 59.0. There was no correlation at all with his PSA tests. During the whole six year period, he indicated that his overall health was "Good." I could conclude nothing about the validity of the HCG test from his results. Of course, we know the PSA test is unreliable and affected by many extraneous factors. During this time, Dan also had several other tests -- sonograms, MRIs and biopsies. All were essentially negative.
In December, 2005, after his last HCG Urine test, Dan had his mercury amalgam fillings removed by a "holistic" dentist. Three days later a "Heavy Metals Fecal Test" showed high in Mercury, Beryllium, Copper, Nickel and Platinum. Two months later, the same test showed the Mercury reduced to "minimums." Did the heavy metal affect the HCG test results? Who knows?
Rita sent me her results, as follows:
August 20th, 2005: 59.0 March 29th, 2006: 56.0 June 10th, 2006: 55.0
This looks like the kind of trend I would expect if someone were following something like the regimen in my book. Note that it took Rita's numbers almost ten months to come down four points.
Carolyn had four tests, as follows:
June 21st, 2004: 64.5 (she had a definite case of breast cancer with mets to the lymph nodes at this point) February 5th, 2005: 60.1 (she had followed a strict diet regimen for several months) October 2nd, 2005: 61.2 (she had used black salve treatments prior to this test) May 25th, 2006: 58.0 (she had followed my regimen -- less Heart Plus -- for several months prior to this test. She also had some "dental work" done in early 2006) Ann had two results, as follows:
June 23rd, 2006: 56.0 July 29th, 2006: 57.0 CAT and PET scans in May 2006 showed cancer in lung (one spot) and liver (two spots)
John gave me this account:
"I had a Navarro test done on 6/23/06 and the reading was 54. I had another one done on 7/29/06 and it read 55. In between this time I have changed my diet, joined a health club, go the the vibe machine everyday, take about 100 pills a day, etc,. I weighed 163 before I bought your e-book, now weigh 139 as of yesterday. My doctor in Dallas says that my ideal weight should be 136. I am close to that. I am losing most of my body fat, am gaining muscle, and feel as if I never had cancer, BUT it is still there. I feel very good physically, and look much better. Once again, after my resection of my colon, I had no idea that I still had cancer. (No physical effects and none to this day.) I feel better than I have in years, weigh less than I have in probably 40 years, and hopefully on the road to recovery."
Harold had three tests, as follows:
June 10th, 2006: 57.0 July 5th, 2006: 57.0 August 9th, 2006: 57.0
He says he was following the regimen in my book, but felt some pain in his liver.
So, Conclusions? Cancer patients can go for years feeling good with their HCG Test reading in the 50's. Cancer tumors are frequently stable. Thus, a "trend" doesn't always occur, regardless of the treatment. In some cases (Mauris Emeka, for example) both the tumor and the symptoms can disappear as the test results come down. The test seems to be a good way to get an inexpensive reassurance that your "level of cancer cells" is not growing and the cancer is not spreading (metastasizing), even though the numbers may not come down. I had hoped for more conclusive results. C'est la vie.
For those of you to whom the above information sounds like Greek, you may want to read the article "Update On The Navarro Urine Cancer Test." You'll find it in my July 19th, 2005 newsletter at:
My wife, Terry, and I will get our second tests this week. We'll give you the results in the next newsletter.
