This is part 5 of the natural treatment and prevention of cancer, I bet you never thought there would be so much information and that there would be so many effective alternative treatments for cancer in existence? If you missed the other 4 parts then you can read them on our blog
Last week we spoke about Sodium Bicarbonate (baking soda) and its many medicinal uses including its great effect upon cancer. Please also check out the adverse effects of taking too much bicarb., and its interactions with some drugs, see here-http://drsircus.com/medicine/sodium-bicarbonate-baking-soda/side-effects-contraindications
Apricot Kernels (bitter almonds)
This week we will examine a substance called Laetrile which is found naturally in rich quantities in apricot kernels. Apricot kernels are also commonly known as “bitter almonds”
Most people take laetrile in the form of apricot kernels. In the middle of an apricot is a hard shell. If you break open the hard shell with a “nut cracker”, pliers or hammer, you will find a small seed/kernel in the middle that looks like an almond. It is this seed that is rich in natural laetrile. Apricot kernels are also not that hard to get hold of, most health food stores will supply them, but you can easily purchase them online as well.
Laetrile (i.e. amygdalin or Vitamin B17) therapy is one of the most popular and best-known alternative cancer treatments. It is very simple to use and is very effective if used in high enough doses, if the product is of high quality, and is combined with an effective cancer diet and key supplements. All alternative cancer treatments need to be combined with food therapy and also paying particular attention to healthy eating and exercise to increase its effectiveness. Laetrile works by targeting and killing cancer cells and building the immune system to fend off future outbreaks of cancer. It uses two different methods of killing cancer cells. It involves a strict diet (as do all cancer treatments) and several supplements. Foods that also contain laetrile include apricot kernels, peach kernels, grape seeds, blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, bean sprouts, lima beans and macadamia nuts (to name but a few).
How does Laetrile kill cancer cells?
When the laetrile compound molecule comes across a cancer cell, it is broken down into two molecules of glucose, 1 molecule of hydrogen cyanide and 1 molecule of benzaldehyde. In the early days of laetrile research, it was assumed that the hydrogen cyanide molecule was the major cancer cell killing molecule, but now it is known that it is the benzaldehyde molecule that is by far the major reason the cancer cell is killed.
You have to take enough laetrile molecules, over a long enough period of time, so that enough laetrile molecules coincidently hit all of the cancer cells first. Too much apricot kernel consumption could leak some cyanide into healthy cells. But the warning signs are early and clear. Any nausea, dizziness, or headaches indicate it`s time to slow down on the amount taken or cut out the sugar. Having said all that an Australian mainstream newspaper the “Sydney Morning Herald”, told the story of a man, who cured himself of cancer by consuming 30 apricot kernels a day. Jill Stark opened her March 10, 2010 article with, “Paul Reid should be dead. Diagnosed with a rare, incurable lymphoma, he was given five years, seven tops, by his oncologist.” The article included a photo of a healthy Reid, smiling with a platter full of fresh foods at age 68, 13 years after his prognosis. His cancer curing protocol consisted of consuming 30 apricot kernels per day.
Despite official warnings regarding cyanide poisoning from Laetrile, Reid did not suffer cyanide poisoning from eating 30 kernels a day!

As I always say; I would never encourage anyone with cancer not to visit their doctor or to seek medical advice, but do make them aware of the many amazing alternative treatments available, most good doctors will welcome the info. Those that don’t or won’t, are simply then just agents for the pharmaceutical companies, otherwise, they would have your best interests at heart. I always say to anyone reading my articles to always do your own research, there are mountains of information on the internet, too much in fact for a small article such as this. The amount of info. I had to leave out is quite astonishing. Please share this info with your family and friends. Sharing this info may save many many lives.
