Default Monitoring your Natural Cancer Cure Progress/Failure

Treating yourself with natural remedies can be full of pitfalls. This is not mentioned to discourage anyone but to make you aware that most of the treatments are not "proven." In my own treatment of cancer for myself I was always dreading the very real consideration that what I was doing was quite possibly not working. Fortunatley I found access to some very unusual and of course highly controversal methods of following my progress that just isn't available to most. Now this method has come to my attention and I think it is worth considering. I did also have a similar test (not through Navarro) done by a local naturopath after I thought I was just about complete with my treatment as a further confirmation.

I do strongly suggest that you find a way to monitor your progess. If you are not progressing then you need to change your treatments one way or another! You will find this article helpful.

Update on Navarro Urine Cancer Test
Practical Health

"Dr. Navarro was a physician at the University of Santo Thomas in the Philippines who used Laetrile. He applied the HCG test to cancer by creating a measurement to determine the rate of cell production in international units (IU's) per cc of urine. When the rate is above normal, it signifies that the body is producing excess, unnecessary cells. Those are interpreted to be malignant."

..."The test detects the presence of brain cancer as early as 29 months before symptoms appear; 27 months for fibrosarcoma of the abdomen; 24 months for skin cancer; 12 months for cancer of the bones (metastasis from breast cancer extirpated 2 years earlier).

Currently, many cancer patients take advantage of the diagnostic accuracy of this test as an indicator of the effectiveness of their specific mode of therapy. Patients follow a simple direction for preparing a dry extract from the urine sample. The powdery extract is mailed to the Navarro Medical Clinic where the HCG testing is performed."...

Here is great follow up to The Myth of Early Cancer Detection post, which drew considerable interest and confusion. Thought the following will help shed some light. It also demonstrates how old knowledge even when based on sound scientific basis is lost only to be reinvented over and over or rejected outright

"Before you read this next article, you might want to go and take a look at a couple of articles in my February 8th, 2005 newsletter. They were on "Navarro Urine Cancer Test" and "Foundation for Advancement of Cancer Therapy (FACT)."

There are some new developments regarding testing for your level of cancer using a urine sample. First, I had a discussion about the "Navarro Urine Cancer Test" with Dr. Kindness, the owner of the lab in Cincinnati, Ohio which does this test. He told me they had modified the way the test was done by Dr. Navarro and his son in the Philippines. He said that the Navarros did not take into account the volume of the urine sample, which he claimed was important.

Instead of a single number indicating the level of human chorionic gonadotrophin (HCG), Dr. Kindness' lab is reporting to the patient the "HCG per mg of creatanine." He said this was necessary to standardize the results. The problem with this, of course, is that it does not give the patient the ability to measure the effectiveness of his/her treatment by comparing the trend in the HCG from one test to the next.

I ordered a test kit from Dr. Kindness' lab and received it a couple of days ago. It asks the patient to submit a bottle of morning urine (10 - 90 ml) by Fed Ex in a sterile urine cup. They furnish the cup with the kit, along with a plastic bag to ship it in and a Fed Ex envelope. The cost, which is not reimburseable by Medicare, is $60. No doctor's prescription or other information on diagnosis, etc. is required. According to one of my readers in New York, it takes about 2 1/2 weeks to get the results.


Because the information I gave you on this in February came from Ruth Sackman, the founder of FACT, I gave Ruth a call. As I expected, she had a somewhat different view. Ruth is a unique lady. She will turn 90 in September. She has more acumen than most people I have met, regardless of age. Ruth and her husband founded FACT in the early 70's and she has been counseling cancer patients about natural healing ever since on a non-profit basis. A friend of mine, Ed van Overloop, was kind enough to send me an audio tape of a talk she gave to his cancer support group in New Jersey in January this year. She is, indeed, a unique lady!

Ruth and I had an interesting conversation. Ruth has been instructing people about sending urine samples to Dr. Navarro's lab in the Philippines for over 30 years. Last year, she located Dr. Kindness and his lab in Ohio and got him to agree to do the test the same way Dr. Navarro (and now his son) had done it. She said that Dr. Kindness did not stick to his agreement about the test. He modified the way he was presenting the results and, thereby, lost the value of the test, as mentioned above. Ruth has been recommending for a couple of months that her people order their tests from Dr. Navarro in The Philippines rather than from Dr. Kindness' lab in Ohio.

Ruth sent me the instructions on how to get the HCG test done by Dr. Navarro's lab. I'm going to put those instructions AT THE END of this newsletter -- as part of the text, not an attachment.

The cost for the test is $50 US Dollars. Again, no doctor's prescription is required. Compare this to the AMAS blood test (covered in my book) which costs $135 plus shipping and requires a doctor's prescription. Also, the urine test is more accurate than the AMAS test. You send the $50 to a U.S. address and then include a Xerox copy of the money order or cashier's check in the package you send (by FedEx -- (First Class mail takes from 5 weeks to foreverzzz); Global Priority Mail takes 10-12 days) to Manila in The Philippines. It takes 5-6 days to get the results IF you send them your e-mail along with the urine sample. What you send them is not a bottle of urine, but a dry packet of the sediment. The text at the end of this newsletter explains exactly how to do that. It's not hard. I've done it a couple of times.

Ruth and her small staff are still counseling cancer patients. They are available from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM (Eastern Time) weekdays at (212) 741-2790.

Now, here are the instructions for getting the Navarro Urine Cancer Test from Dr. Navarro's lab in The Philippines:

HCG Urine Immunoassay

A safe, cost-effective, non-invasive, accurate screening for Cancer

Developed in the late 1930's by the renowned oncologist, the late Dr. Manuel D. Navarro, the test detects the presence of HCG in urine. It indicates the presence of cancer cells even before signs or symptoms develop. Dr. Navarro found HCG to be elevated in all types of cancers.

The test is based on a theory proposed by Dr. Howard Beard and other researchers who contend that cancer is related to a misplaced trophoblast cell that becomes malignant in a manner similar to pregnancy in that they both secrete HCG. As a consequence, a measure of the amount of HCG found in the blood or urine is also a measure of the degree of malignancy. The higher the number, the greater the severity of the cancer.

Urine, as opposed to blood or serum, is the preferred specimen for the test. In 1980, Papapetrou and co-authors reported the correctness of the urine specimen to be used in HCG Immunoassay. In 32 proven cancer cases, the immunoassay test gave 31 positive results using urine while only 12 positive results were reported using blood. HCG has been found to undergo glycosylation in the liver as it travels in the hepatic circulation. Thus, the HCG molecule cannot be detected. The molecule does not undergo this process in the kidney and therefore the molecule remains intact in the urine.

The test detects the presence of brain cancer as early as 29 months before symptoms appear; 27 months for fibrosarcoma of the abdomen; 24 months for skin cancer; 12 months for cancer of the bones (metastasis from breast cancer extirpated 2 years earlier).

Currently, many cancer patients take advantage of the diagnostic accuracy of this test as an indicator of the effectiveness of their specific mode of therapy. Patients follow a simple direction for preparing a dry extract from the urine sample. The powdery extract is mailed to the Navarro Medical Clinic where the HCG testing is performed.

For further information, contact the following organizations Navarro Medical Clinic Dr. Efren Navarro 3553 Sining Street Morningside Terrace Santa Mesa, Manila Philippines 011-(632) 714-7442 [email protected]

Mrs. Erlinda Saurez 631 Peregrine Drive Palatine, Illinois 60067 (847) 359-3634 [Evening calls appreciated]

Directions for Urine Sample Preparation

(1) From an early morning urine, take 50 cc (1.7 oz.) and add 200 cc (7 oz.) of acetone (can be purchased from hardware store or pharmacy) and 5 cc (.2 oz) of alcohol, either rubbing or ethyl. Stir and mix well. (2) Let it stand in the refrigerator for 2 hours until sediment is formed. Throw off about half of the urine-acetone mixture without losing any sediment. Filter the remainder through a coffee filter or laboratory filter paper. (3) When filtration is over, dry the filter with its sediment. Fold and wrap in aluminum foil. Send by FedEx (First Class mail takes from 5 weeks to forever; Global Priority Mail takes 10-12 days) to the Navarro Medical Clinic (address listed above) including a Xerox copy of the money order or cashier's check with the patient's name, address, sex, age and a brief clinical history and/or diagnosis. Also, be SURE to include your e-mail address. This will speed up your receipt of the results by at least 4-6 weeks. (4) PRECAUTION: No sexual contact for 12 days for female patients before collecting the urine sample. For males, no sexual contact for 18-24 hours before collecting the urine sample. DO NOT SEND URINE IF THE PATIENT IS PREGNANT.

Send the $50 (money order or cashier's check) to: Erlinda N. Saurez 631 Peregrine Drive Palatine, IL 60067-7005 USA

Please allow 4-6 weeks for test result delivery if they have to be sent by mail to the USA, Canada or Europe. (HINT: Send it by FedEx and give the lab your e-mail address so they can send you the results the same day the test is done.)

The HCG Immunity Link By Ruth Sackman

Dr. Howard Beard, a biochemist and cancer patient, found that he could monitor his cancer by doing the human chorionic gonadotrophin (HCG) immunoassay to determine how actively his body was producing unnecessary cells or controlling cell production at a normal level. This HCG test is used to determine pregnancy, a natural process, whereby the body is producing excess cells for the development of a fetus. Dr. Beard's theory was that if HCG levels rose but no fetus was developing, then abnormal cell production was taking place which, to him, signified a cancer problem. Dr. Manuel Navarro agreed with this philosophy and established a measurement to diagnose cancer. A tumor would not be clinically evident immediately but in time might manifest in men as well as women.

Two scientists with the West London Hospital, Helen Davies and S. F. Contractor were interested in one of the most mysterious biological processes � how the body knew when birth was ready at the end of nine months gestation. They reported in the British journal Nature that they believe birth is really a process of rejection initiated by the body's own defense system. The reason this rejection is controlled is because above normal amounts of HCG appear in the mother's urine during pregnancy. HCG, they believe, prevents the mother's sentry cells (lymphocytes) from recognizing the foreign protein (fetus). The HCG levels remain high until just before birth when a drop in HCG triggers the rejection of the fetus and birth occurs. Without such recognition, rejection cannot take effect, ergo, when the HCG titre is above normal on the HCG test, cancer cell rejection does not take place.

Therefore, Dr. Beard's theory of measuring HCG levels has a sound scientific basis. Low levels of HCG allow the body to reject abnormal protein just as it rejects the fetus, and high levels interfere with the body's ability to build the lymphocytes necessary to effect rejection of cancer cells.

This theory validates Dr. Beard's conclusion that the HCG measurement found in the urine was a competent system to diagnose and monitor cancer cell activity."

Yes definitely fascinating. Sound like this test could be of real value.
Now I wonder how long it will be before conventional medicine will look into this?
OK I�m sorry, I realize that�s a dumb question.

HCG Test Poll Results
Everything You've Ever Wanted To Know About Ph


**** Cancer Foundation For Single Parents
**** FDA Plans Your Future

Welcome to this 100th issue of my newsletter. Over a year's worth of past issues are available at this web site. Just click on the "Newsletter Archive" link on the left of the screen.

Also, check out the Cancer Success Forum. You'll find lots of information on cancer-related subjects. Post your question and get a thorough and informative reply. Just go to:


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.

Mauris Emeka"

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.
