Editor's Note: Some time ago, Health Action magazine was the first to report on the natural cancer treatment supplement Salvestrols. While HANS does not endorse any particlular product or service, we recognized some time ago that research of the Savestrols team was unique and, most importantly, helping people. Recently, a prestigious orthomolecular medical journal featured five Salvestrol case studies. Since we often receive requests for more information about Salvestrols, we're reprinting with permission (below), abbreviated versions of two of the them from the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine (Fourth Quarter 2007, Vol 22, No 4, p 177-182. Ph: 416-733-2117). Web: orthomed.org.
Case #1: Lung cancer
A 69-year-old male was diagnosed with inoperable, stage 2-3 squamous-cell carcinoma of the lung. A seven-centimetre tumour that was adhering to the sternum and chest wall was detected. Enlarged lymph nodes were also detected, one of which was approaching three centimetres in diameter.
This patient was experiencing no pain, but had seen his doctor due to coughing up blood. No chemotherapy or radiation therapies were recommended. He was given a life expectancy of eight to 18 months and sent home.
Since diet and lifestyle may well have contributed to his condition, dietary change was strongly recommended with an emphasis on organic fruit and vegetables. The patient immediately commenced a diet of fresh, organic fruit, vegetables and juices. Meat, refined sugar and dairy products were eliminated from his diet. He also took 12 (350 point) Salvestrol supplements per day, commensurate with his body weight, for six weeks.
At the end of the first week of dietary change and Salvestrol supplementation, the patient was no longer coughing up blood. Within three weeks his diagnosis had been changed from inoperable to operable lung cancer requiring removal of one lung. At the end of three weeks a biopsy of the largest lymph node was taken following a PET scan and was found to be negative. The diagnosis was once again changed to operable lung cancer requiring removal of one lobe of the affected lung.
Six weeks after commencement of dietary change and Salvestrol supplementation surgery was performed. Rather than removing one lobe of the lung as planned, the surgeon simply removed the shrunken tumour and a couple of suspicious lymph nodes.
During surgery the tumour was found to be clear of the sternum and chest wall. Postoperative analysis of the lymph nodes proved that they were not cancerous. This patient was deemed cancer free. Subsequent to the surgery he has reduced the amount of Salvestrol supplementation to six capsules per day, spread across the daily meals, and has also maintained a diet rich in organic fruit and vegetables.
Case #2: Melanoma
A 94-year-old woman was diagnosed with stage 4 melanoma on her foot following a biopsy. At time of diagnosis the woman was unable to walk and black spots had appeared on her body. The cancerous sore had not responded to any doctor or nurse prescribed prior to diagnosis. The melanoma was deemed to be inoperable.
Both the surgeons and patient's family agreed that the patient was unlikely to survive the treatment options, which included skin grafting, amputation and radiation. The family asked for alternative procedures and were told there were none. The patient was given a life expectancy of two weeks and returned to her nursing home. The family was advised that if she lived longer than the two weeks she would require morphine to control the pain.
Upon returning home, the family started her on a regimen of Salvestrol cream for her melanoma. She also took Salvestrol supplements, four (1,000 point) capsules per day, for seven months. Subsequently four (350 point) Salvestrol Gold capsules were taken per day. The family also requested her nursing home serve an anti-inflammatory diet contain organic, wholesome foods, and additional supplements, as prescribed by a naturopathic doctor.
Contrary to expectation, no pain medication was ever required. After a few months, the melanoma was healing sufficiently and the patient was able to put some weight on her foot. The black spots that had appeared on her body stopped developing further and were contained. A few months later she began walking and was pushing her wheelchair rather than being pushed in her wheelchair. A slow and steady progress was observed.
No contact with her original physicians was made for a period of one year. After one year had elapsed, one of the physicians involved in the original diagnosis visited the woman and performed an examination. The melanoma was gone and the foot completely healed. She was deemed cancer free and it was noted that she had an extremely strong immune system.
At the age of 95, the woman is enjoying walks with her friends, although not for as great a distance as she once enjoyed. She experiences no pain in relation to her prior melanoma.
Discovering salvestrols by Brian A Schaefer
Much is said about the link between diet and cancer but very little explanation is provided regarding how this link might work. Scientists in the United Kingdom have worked out a mechanism by which diet can have a direct impact on cancer.
Their initial discovery was that cancer cells all express an enzyme that is peculiar to cancer cells, that is, it does not appear in healthy cells. What they discovered next was that this enzyme metabolizes a class of phytonutrients (natural plant chemicals) known as Salvestrols to produce metabolites that kill off the cancer cells. Since the enzyme is only found in cancer cells, this mechanism only affects cancer cells and is not at all harmful to healthy cells. This amounts to a completely natural and highly targeted mechanism, which has been around for millennia, for ridding the body of cancer cells.
The current difficulty with the mechanism is that Salvestrols are no longer found in abundance in our food. A switch to organic produce is required to increase one's intake of Salvestrols for cancer prevention, and for actively fighting cancer, one needs to supplement the diet with Salvestrols.
