Good Evening Everyone;

Found this while doing some research, not specific to MM but to cancer in general.

Hi Kevin, everyone else,

Thanks for posting this, Kevin.  I had actually started to look at something similar to this article while waiting to see the dr this morning, but didn't get to finish it, and had not thought to look for it online!

I think there is no doubt when looking at worldwide statistics that modern treatment of cancer is by and large missing the boat. 

In researching alternatives for several people on the board, I've spent a great deal of time looking at information provided by AP John Cancer Institute in Connecticut. They treat all cancers with the same diet, customized to each individual patient, and they are getting some phenomenal results. This same diet, CAAT, and variations of it, have been used in completed clinical trials, again, with some pretty impressive results. The science behind the diet, to my way of thinking, makes so much sense, I don't understand why EVERYONE treating cancer has not adopted their approach.

Even more amazing to me than the diet is their way of thinking about cancer, first from the standpoint of prevention, and then incorporating the principles of prevention with those things that are known to defeat cancer once it is established in the body. Comparatively few institutions and private practitioners are focused on prevention - and that has GOT to become the approach of the future, or the doom and gloom is going to get much deeper and thicker.

Here is a link to AP John's literature on the first line of defense against cancer, the cancer detox system.  The article is kind of technical, but not nearly so as much of the other stuff that we all try to wade thru in efforts to understand how to beat this disease. THere are many excellent links on the web site, including explanations of how many different cancers affect the body, are diagnosed, and treated, plus valuable information about the CAAT diet and how AP John works with patients from around the world to help gain victory against cancer.

Y'all take care,

Hi Jennings,

(I looked back at my original message in this thread - I think perhaps
I didn't say what I actually meant to say. While trying to convey that
this looks like an excellent cancer diet in that the science seems
sound  and clinical trials have given really good results - and I am
impressed with their data on prevention -   I was not intending to
recommend this as a solitary treatment for any kind of cancer. My
apology if there was any confusion.) 

I did a search back through Cancer Compass - found this message thread that contains a good description of how CAAT works and AP John's diet

http://www.cancercompass.com/message-board/message/all,22338

Of the other message threads I looked at, there are both good and bad reviews of the therapy. The most common "pro" comments I saw were that it's a great diet for losing weight and gaining an overall better sense of well-being, that some people had a definite stopping of tumor growth, and that CAAT seems to be most effective when used in conjunction with other therapies such as chemo or other alternative therapies. The most common "against" comments I saw were that it is very expensive, and takes a lot of discipline to follow the diet. 

These comments echo advise given by many experts on alternative therapies: use a cancer diet with any and all other therapies, but do not use any single therapy - even the best cancer diet - alone.  A combination of 2 or 3 therapies will better cover all the bases and be much more likely to give the best results. And any therapy takes discipline to follow - fighting cancer just isn't easy.

Here is AP John's page on pancreatic cancer:

http://www.apjohncancerinstitute.org/cancer/pancreatic.htm

I think they make it pretty clear that in all but the simplest cases of cancer, the diet is intended for use with other therapies rather than as stand-alone treatment. 

Take care,

Tre

also, look back through Cancer Compass on the alternative treatments message board, and on the pancreatic cancer message board

Good Evening Tre;

I think there is no doubt when looking at worldwide statistics that modern treatment of cancer is by and large missing the boat.

Is that ever an understatement!

The title of the article puts everything in perspective.

Remove, Radiate and Repeat as necessary just doesn't seem like much progress. These doctors really don't have a vested interest like we do in finding a cure.

That's why it's imperative for us to educate ourselves so we can challenge these doctors to work with us in finding a cure. We stand as good of a chance on stumbling upon the cure as they do. But we must keep trying!

Take care;

Kevin

To anybody trying to use this protocol:

I tried this one but I urge you not to spend the  money on it! Why! It does not work at all! 

First the amino acid capsules are all synthetic - body reacts to different types of substances and using synthetic stuff will be different.

At first AP john Sr. passed away from mysterious illness in 2006. The institute is partly managed by his son ap John , jr - who after tons of inquiries will not tell me his educational background.

I ordered the supplement, started asking about what's in the capsules, how is it affecting the body, etc. First he was helpful. Later when I started pushing for more info based on all the researches I've made, suddenly all my questions are not being answered. Supplements and nutritional stuff that are contraindicating. He said do not eat soy product.. do not use supplements with soy, gelatin, etc. and yet the supplements that I ordered from them are gelatin and soy-based and other stuff that is contra-indication to what they were saying.

 After using the CAAT for two weeks, you're supposed to take the supplements they prescribed (costs about $299.00++) They also ask you to go on a strict diet -vegetarian and once a day on  fish. It is good for losing weight and good nutrition. But I still question the efficacy of the synthetic amino acid and how each person reacts to it!  So far any of my questions were unanswered and now he refused to deal with me or answer any of my inquiries! There is no further research and clinical testing done. I even ask references to oncologists that are using the protocol and the institution refuse to give me any --to many reasons to mention such as privacy, they will not talk to you, etc.

The institute can't even provide statistical data on how many patients are using this treatment and how many failed/worked! I will not waste money on unproven stuff especially for these people who decided hide and not answer inquiries.

Can "Controlled Amino Acid Therapy" kill cancer cells and distroy cancer tumotrs like pancretic cancer?  How doesit do it?  

 

 

This is a very complicated process  I got a lot of this  from Dr Ross Walker book the cell factor. And Dr Johanna Budwig research I have  left out Dr Budwig  research (as it will be to much to read) which has shown the tremendous effects that commercially processed fats and oils have in destroying cell membranes and lowering the voltage in the cells of our bodies, which then result in chronic and terminal disease. to see a bit more go to this address

 http://www.cancertutor.com/Cancer/Budwig.html

 

 Controlled Amino Acid Therapy dose not kill cancer cells. it repairs the outer cancer cell  membrane a round them. How it works is normal cells use fats to build there outer membrane but a normal cell does not know normal fats form saturated fats.  so the cell use the  saturated  fats  in it outer membrane now because saturated fat molecule are smaller then normal fats the cell gets  lest nutrient gets past them in to the cell and the cell start to starves. The only way it can survive is to change it self in to a cancer cell. this allows the cell outer membrane to get bigger so it can get more nutrients in. and it can use fermentation to make oxygen. This is why I said Controlled Amino Acid Therapy dose not kill cancer cells it repairs the outer cancer cell membrane a round the cell. So the cell get more of the nutrients it needs. the cell   shrinks back to normal size and change  the codes in its nucleus. At the moment it still a cancer cell but when it divides instead of having two cancer cells you now have two normal cells. Cheers Ray

Hi jennings sorry for the way you are feeling.  I know how angry we all can get fighting cancer.  That feeling of hopelessness we all know. Like some thing is killing us stoking us waiting to pounce. So we fight it. The problem is we are fighting our self. I look back on what I was doing to my self, like lots of sugary foods and foods with saturated fats, drinking every day. No wonder I got cancer. I have learned form other CC members that we have cancer cells from the day we are concaved, in our mother womb. To the day we die  It’s a natural part of life.  That it only when we treat our body badly and we produce to many cancer cells that our cancer defenses in our body  get over whelmed, and we develop tumors. There has been a lot of people giving good advice on this CC site. The one patient that had the good effect on me was Kevin. CC member KC. The research he has done and posted on CC. Show a lot of us the he really cared. As I said  I know Now when we fight our cancer we are fighting our self. However, we are also fighting the mistakes we made in our lives. Not only eating the wrong foods, but not allowing our self to rest properly, smoking drinking etc. We put out self in this mess, and say hay doctor fix this. But they cant fix it all they can do is maybe gives us a few more years there is just to mush damage. But  our body’s trying to do the best it can to keep us alive. Ive been told it will keep fighting to we take our last breath that why we produce tumor protein markers it our body still fighting for take care Ray
