Farrah Fawcett's Fatal Mistake: Correcting the Record


By Andrew Scholberg, author of German Cancer Breakthrough

    As you may know, Hollywood actress Farrah Fawcett went to Germany for cancer treatments. I wrote an article about it called "Farrah Fawcett's Fatal Mistake," which Cancer Defeatedpublished in Issue #3.

    Cancer Defeated published this important information because Farrah's death caused many people to doubt that the alternative treatments available in Germany were effective. It would be tragic if people came to that conclusion.

    But after a recent trip to Germany, where I had the chance to interview some eyewitnesses, I've come to believe the article contained major errors and I want to set them straight. Farrah did make some terrible mistakes, but not the ones I'd been told. . .

Continued below. . .

Toxic chemical condemned 8 men to die of prostate cancer
. . .but one of them escaped. Here's how he did it!
    John S. watched helplessly as 7 of his Vietnam platoon buddies died of prostate cancer, one by one. They were exposed to chemicals during the war that caused them to get cancer when they reached middle age. Then, in 2002, John found out it was his turn. He got opinions from three different doctors and they all told him the same thing: he'd need a miracle to survive.

    John found the miracle he needed. Four years after his diagnosis, he told us, "I am healthy and happy with no symptoms of the disease." He actually wishes he'd gotten the disease sooner so he could have told his Army buddies this secret. It might have saved their lives.

    We're ALL exposed every day to chemicals similar to the ones that killed these veterans. A man is just about certain to get prostate cancer if he lives long enough. That means John's life-saving secret is big news for men everywhere. Click here and keep reading. . .

    On the basis of what two sources told me, I wrote more than two years ago that Farrah Fawcett's fatal mistake was that she didn't get any hyperthermia treatments. Hyperthermia is a potent cancer therapy that German doctors have perfected.

    One of these sources claimed to have personally spoken to Farrah's German doctor about the urgent need to give Farrah hyperthermia treatments. The source told me that Farrah's German doctor stubbornly refused to give Farrah this life-saving treatment. And that's what I published.

    My other source told me in an e-mail, "Evidently Farrah Fawcett was never offered any treatments with hyperthermia. She never received one single hyperthermia treatment during her many stays in Germany."

    I've now had the chance to actually speak to the physician who treated Farrah, and I believe my two sources for the first article gave me inaccurate information. Here's the real story as related to me by Farrah's doctor:

    Farrah did have hyperthermia treatments while in Germany -- both local hyperthermia and whole body hyperthermia. I found out the facts when I interviewed Farrah's German doctor, Ursula Jacob, M.D., at her clinic in the Black Forest.

    Dr. Jacob, "the doctor to the stars," graciously took time from her busy schedule to sit down with me for the interview and set the record straight. She told me that Farrah responded well to hyperthermia, immune-boosting therapies, and detoxification. Farrah also received a highly specialized treatment at the University of Frankfurt: chemo-embolization.

    What's chemo-embolization? I'll explain: Instead of using chemo the usual way -- indiscriminately -- the doctor uses chemo like a "smart bomb," injecting chemo directly into the tumor to shrink it down to size. This therapy was working for Farrah. Her tumor was shrinking.
Then why did Farrah lose her battle against cancer?
    I asked Dr. Jacob where Farrah went wrong in her cancer treatment. She replied that when Farrah returned to the United States, she went back to receiving high-dose chemotherapy.

    Dr. Jacob doesn't like chemo because it's so toxic. If she uses chemo at all, she only uses it in low doses -- about one tenth of the amount that conventional cancer doctors give. And she sometimes recommends chemo-embolization, as she did in Farrah's case.

    Dr. Jacob considers chemo a bad idea unless a chemo sensitivity test is used to match a patient's cancer cells to the chemotherapy drug that's most likely to kill them. The test indicates that a specific kind of chemo will work, and thereby avoids the hit-or-miss approach of conventional cancer doctors, who will administer one chemotherapy drug after another (in high doses, of course), hoping to find one that works.

    If a chemo sensitivity test shows that no chemo is likely to work against a particular cancer, Dr. Jacob says NO chemo should be used.

    Conventional American cancer doctors don't bother with chemo sensitivity tests. But that's not to say they choose the chemo drug entirely at random. Their practice is to match the drug to the organ that has cancer — for example, liver cancer is treated with drugs thought to be more effective against liver cancer, breast cancer is treated with drugs supposedly more effective against breast cancer.

    The best information we have is that this approach is mistaken. The effectiveness of the chemo drug has very little to do with the organ. Instead, a sample of cancer cells should be taken from the patient and tested in the lab against a series of chemo drugs to determine which drug is most effective. This is what's done in chemo sensitivity testing.

    Dr. Jacob also reminded me about another factor that contributed to Farrah's death: the stress of a family crisis. During her struggle against cancer, Farrah's 25-year-old son, Redmond, got in trouble with the law. He was put behind bars on April 5, 2009, two months before she died, for a drug offense.
Here's a brief timeline of Farrah's cancer ordeal, to the best of my knowledge:
October 2006: Farrah is diagnosed with a rare form of cancer — anal cancer — at the age of 59. She receives surgery and chemo.

November 2006: In the midst of her conventional American cancer treatments, Farrah says, "I just feel so weak and so sick and I'm in so much pain. I don't know how I can make it to radiation" (as quoted in her best friend Alana Stewart's diary).

February 2007: With much fanfare, Farrah's U.S. doctors announce that Farrah is now cancer free.

May 2007: Farrah's cancer returns. Her U.S. doctors recommend that she undergo a colostomy — a radical procedure that would have forced Farrah to eliminate her solid waste into a plastic bag for the rest of her life. Farrah says no. She instead goes to Germany for alternative treatments.

June 2007: Farrah is treated in Germany by Ursula Jacob, M.D., and her team of cancer specialists. After receiving a treatment at the University of Frankfurt, Farrah takes a five-hour van ride back to Dr. Jacob's clinic. Significantly, on the drive back, Farrah insists on stopping at a fast-food joint where she wolfs down a gigantic burger and drinks a Coke, her favorite beverage, according to the diary of Alana Stewart, who accompanied Farrah. Coke is loaded with sugar, which feeds cancer cells.

2007-2008: After returning to America, Farrah makes at least two more trips to Germany for alternative cancer treatments.

April 5, 2009: Farrah is now back on high-dose chemotherapy in America. Her 25-year-old son Redmond is put behind bars for a repeat drug offense.

April 6, 2009: Farrah is rushed to a hospital, unconscious. Three days later she is released. One of her American doctors, Lawrence Piro, M.D., claims Farrah is "doing very well" but admits that Farrah is weak from the side effects of chemotherapy. One of the potential side effects of high-dose chemo is death.

May 7, 2009: Farrah's condition deteriorates. It's described as "critical."

June 25, 2009: Farrah's battle with cancer comes to an end. She dies at 9:28 a.m., Pacific daylight time.
Farrah's weakness for Coca-Cola
    Farrah might well be alive today if only she had followed Dr. Jacob's advice about medical treatment and lifestyle changes. It's especially important that cancer patients follow an anti-cancer eating plan.

    In America, very few cancer doctors advise their patients to avoid sugar. But the top German cancer doctors give their patients advice on the lifestyle changes they must make to keep their cancer from sneaking back. One lifestyle change is to avoid sugar. It bears repeating that sugar feeds cancer.

    Unfortunately, Farrah had a weakness for Coca-Cola, which is jam-packed with sugar. Coke was Farrah's favorite beverage, as her best friend Alana Stewart noted in her diary entry for June 1, 2007. Even in the midst of her cancer treatments, Farrah couldn't stop drinking Coca-Cola. Believe it or not, each 12-ounce Coke contains an astounding 10 cubes of sugar! That's right. Drinking one Coke is like eating 10 sugar cubes.

    Farrah's German medical team is not to blame for her death. In fact, they helped Farrah extend her life and gave her a better quality of life. My reporting points to at least three factors beyond the control of Farrah's German doctors that contributed to Farrah's death:
  1. Her addiction to sugar
  2. Stress from her son's drug conviction and incarceration
  3. Her decision to revert to high-dose chemo, a toxic treatment
    The most advanced non-toxic cancer treatments in the world, especially hyperthermia, are found in Germany. The German doctors I interviewed for my Special Report German Cancer Breakthrough use a sophisticated hyperthermia machine costing about a quarter of a million dollars -- plus other advanced therapies, including nutrition and detoxification. In my opinion, the German alternative and integrative cancer clinics are perhaps the number one destination for cancer treatment.

    I don't recommend every cancer clinic in Germany, however. Most German cancer clinics, in fact, are pretty much like the cancer hospitals here in America, using crude and toxic treatments such as high-dose chemo and radiation.
I can tell you the best cancer clinics in Germany
    Eight clinics in Germany stand out above all the others, routinely curing stage-four cancers with an integrative, holistic approach built around hyperthermia, breakthroughs from space medicine, and other amazing therapies such as:
  • The "hot needle" treatment -- a painless and effective alternative to major abdominal surgery. In the last 10 years, one doctor has cured over 400 liver cancer patients with the "hot needle."
  • A new inexpensive treatment for prostate cancer that's so easy the patient can play golf in the afternoon after getting the treatment in the morning. A doctor in Bavaria cured 123 out of 123 prostate cancer patients with this inexpensive therapy that has NO bad side effects. Patients keep their prostates in working order.
  • A mild treatment for the deadliest brain cancer with astonishing results. One doctor told me: "With the last four brain cancer patients, we have a 100 percent success rate. These brain cancers were glioblastoma multiforme [the kind that killed Senator Ted Kennedy], which grows quickly and needs lots of blood vessels to grow. We found a way to stop the vessels from growing. That's why we were so successful."
  • All of the German doctors I interviewed are using breakthroughs from space medicine to activate the immune system so it massacres cancer cells. These therapies from space medicine are painless and make the patients feel good!
    I should mention one more benefit of going to Germany for cancer treatment: as a medical tourist, you get a FREE trip to Europe from the money you save by avoiding the exorbitant price of conventional American cancer treatment!

    For example, during my most recent trip to Germany I met Mike Garrett from Oklahoma, who was at a Bavarian clinic as a result of reading my Special Report German Cancer Breakthrough. The report names the eight best clinics and describes them in detail, with contact information.

    Mike Garrett was sure happy with the clinic that treated him. "It's our first trip to Germany. I can tell you I love it," Mike enthused. "I take a walk outside, and it's bucolic. I mean, there are the cows up there with the bells on them. The green fields. The Alps. It's truly, truly marvelous. And this is a very healing place. I'm leaving tomorrow. The doctor said I only need a week of treatment. This is a great clinic, and so is the doctor. Thank you for the book. You saved my life."

    By choosing treatment in Germany, Mike got his prostate cancer cured in one week for less than $10,000 -- a mere fraction of what conventional cancer doctors in America would've charged him. He truly did get a FREE trip to Europe as a bonus for getting rid of his cancer the easy way!

Does Coffee Cause Cancer

The World Health Organization Weighs In
    In 2011, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared that frequent cell phone use could be a contributing factor to brain cancer. You can read the story in Issue #90.
    The brouhaha caused by that announcement may have overshadowed the fact that seemingly innocent items such as coffee and pickled veggies were also on their list of possible cancer-causing agents!
    Even though coffee goes into the 'maybe' category—the WHO may be giving it a bum rap.  Other research indicates coffee actually helps decrease cancer risk! Yes, it's true.  There's some powerful evidence coffee prevents cancer. 
Online Publishing and Marketing
    Just to clarify some of the lingo, we turn to WHOs International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC). The group is responsible for classifying carcinogens into these categories:
Group 1—known carcinogens, such as tobacco smoke and UV radiation
Group 2A—probably carcinogens, such as indoor emission of combustible fuels
Group 2B—possible carcinogens, such as cell phones and coffee
Group 3—not classifiable as a cancer causing agent in humans
Group 4—most likely not a carcinogen in humans
Harvard researchers say 4 cups a day
 scares uterine cancer away!
    Researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health published recent study results suggesting coffee helps decrease a woman's risk of developing endometrial cancer, i.e. cancer of the lining of the uterus.
     Women who daily drank more than four cups of coffee over several years were less likely to develop this type of cancer, according to lead study author Edward L. Giovannucci, M.D., a professor at the School of Public Health.
    The Harvard researchers examined 67,470 women between the ages of 34 and 59 to determine effects of coffee intake on endometrial cancer. Over 26 years, they documented 672 cases of endometrial cancer among the participants.
    But the researchers found that women who drank more than four cups of coffee each day reduced their risk for endometrial cancer by 25 percent. 
    And even if they only drank between two and three cups per day—the women still experienced a 7 percent reduced risk.
    It seems coffee may reduce both insulin and free estrogen levels, which are both risk factors associated with endometrial cancer, according Dr. Giovannucci.
    So were these findings an odd, one-off result? Well, the Harvard researchers noted similar findings with another type of cancer...
Could drinking coffee protect
the prostate, too?
    Results of another multi-year study examining coffee drinkers and prostate cancer risk suggests it can!
     In this case, 47,911 American men in the Health Professionals Follow-Up Study reported their coffee consumption every four years from 1986 to 2008.
    There were 5,035 reported cases of prostate cancer during the study period. Researchers found that men who consumed six or more cups daily had nearly a 20 percent lower risk of developing prostate cancer.
     And the link with coffee was even stronger for aggressive prostate cancer. Men who drank the most coffee lowered their risk of developing lethal prostate cancer by 60 percent!  If it holds up, this would be a very significant finding.
    Aggressive prostate cancer is the one to fear most, reportedly accounting for about one out of ten prostate cancer cases. Slow-growing prostate cancer accounts for the other 90 percent, and as the saying goes, "Most men die with it, not of it."
    Even drinking just one to three cups of coffee daily was associated with a 30 percent lower risk of lethal prostate cancer. And these figures include adjustments to account for men who smoked and failed to exercise—behaviors that may boost prostate cancer risk.
    Other studies have shown a positive link between coffee use and a reduction in risk of other types of cancer including cancer of the breast… esophagus… liver… mouth… and skin... not to mention a moderate reduction in cardiovascular disease.
    I'm not surprised by the findings.  It's well established that coffee is especially rich in antioxidants, as are some other unlikely-sounding substances including beer and chocolate.  From what I know, green coffee beans are richer in antioxidants than roasted beans. A couple of companies even market a coffee-extract supplement.
    So what gives? Why does the WHO list coffee as a possible carcinogen if so many scientific studies seem to point to its protective benefits?
More evidence needed...
    One reason the WHO may have classified coffee as a 2B carcinogen can be traced to some studies showing a weak link between incidents of bladder cancer and coffee consumption among non-smokers.
    The December 2000 journal Cancer Causes Control published an analysis of 564 case-controlled studies in Europe. Researchers concluded that non-smokers who are heavy coffee drinkers may have a small excess risk of developing bladder cancer.
     The research team cautioned that there was possible bias in the selection of the control group. On the basis of these results, they were prepared to say that only a slight proportion of bladder cancer among non-smokers could be attributed to coffee drinking.
    So with such inconclusive results, you might not feel the need to toss your beans just yet. But it can never hurt to drink your java in moderation until the verdict is in.
    To my way of thinking, four cups of coffee a day is a lot, although I realize many people do drink that much.  I gave it up myself, reluctantly, because I was just too sensitive to the stimulant. I have a strong sense it's a harmful habit, but the evidence is mixed and you'll have to judge for yourself.

Editor's Note:  Following is the report of one of our star writers, Andrew Scholberg, who represented Cancer Defeated at the 5th Evidence-based Complementary & Alternative Cancer Conference held recently in West Palm Beach, Florida. The conference is sponsored by the Annie Appleseed Project, a nonprofit group that challenges conventional cancer treatment and seek alternatives.
    One of Dr. Keith Block's patients with metastasized prostate cancer called his wife after his initial consultation. He told her, "Honey, throw out the roast. We're going vegetarian!" She did, and he's still alive 25 years later.
     Keith Block, M.D., is one of the world's leading integrative cancer doctors. He related this story at the 2012 Complementary & Alternative Cancer Conference, where he was the keynote speaker.
     Another patient came to Dr Block with metastasized kidney cancer. The doctor he'd been seeing had given him one month to live. He's alive 22 years later and free of disease. And Dr. Block says he actually looks younger today than he did 22 years ago! Keep reading to find out how Dr. Block brings about these remarkable cures. . .

You've got to watch this
    I recently came across what I believe is one of the most promising cancer advancements of the past 30 years.
    A neurochemist developed it over the course of 20 years. Already several major studies (on over 10,000 patients combined) have verified its accuracy. The FDA has even approved it.
    But, strangely, this cancer discovery has been kept almost completely quiet. (The reason why made me furious -- I bet you'll feel the same way.)
    I just finished watching this special video alert… It's got everything you need to know about this medical development.
    You've got to watch it now...

    A woman with inoperable pancreatic cancer was given three months to live. Her doctor told her, "We have no treatment for you." She went to Dr. Block's clinic and is now a long-term survivor.
      Dr. Block has many other such stories that prove how foolish it is for a doctor to presume to know how long a patient is going to live -- something only God can know.
     The founder of the Annie Appleseed conference, Ann Fonfa, first met Dr. Block in 2005. She introduced him by saying, "We know what Keith Block does is working because we hear from people all over the country."
Doctors use this alternative secret,
but you can't have it
    Dr. Block rejects the notion that a cancer doctor should use only conventional treatments or only natural remedies. Rather, he combines the best of both. He uses chemo sensitivity testing, designed to match a patient's cancer cells with the specific chemo drug that's most likely to kill the strain of cancer the patient has.  He only uses chemo when the test indicates that a chemo drug will be effective against that cancer.
     Ann Fonfa pointed out that some conventional cancer doctors are well aware of the value of the chemo sensitivity test, yet they withhold it from their patients! She found out about that by accident from a doctor from the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center who attended one of her conferences.
     This doctor told the audience that when he got colon cancer his fellow doctors at Sloan-Kettering gave him a chemo sensitivity test to find the best treatment. But he said the same doctors tell all their patients that "chemo sensitivity testing doesn't work." This dishonesty, hypocrisy, and greed is par for the course in the cancer treatment racket.
     But Dr. Block's clinic is different. His sole focus is to give his patients therapies that will actually help them get rid of their cancer. And he has put just about everything needed to beat cancer under one roof.
The six key factors in treating cancer
    The treatment plan at Dr. Block's clinic focuses on a few key factors, and he named six: the eating plan, the mind-spirit connection, physical care, nutrition, fitness, and attitude. The treatment is individualized, not one-size-fits-all.
    The first thing you see when you enter Dr. Block's clinic is the kitchen. And that's no accident because he regards food as either a help or a hindrance in getting rid of cancer. Eating the wrong foods -- like sugar, bad fats, and junk food -- will feed cancer. But a solid eating plan that includes a good variety of vegetables helps cure cancer.
    He recommends a colorful variety ("rainbow") of vegetables, whole cereal grains, and mostly plant-based proteins. He offers his patients cooking classes, which he says are fundamental and basic for medical care.
      Inflammation is a common problem that can lead to or aggravate cancer. In fact, inflammation more than doubles the mortality from cancer. Yet conventional doctors don't even test for it. Dr. Block does, and he prescribes a treatment plan that reduces inflammation.
    Correcting the ratio of bad fats to good fats is one way to reduce inflammation. Dr. Block said that omega 6 fats can drive up inflammation. The typical American has a ratio of 20 to one of bad fats to good fats (omega 3). Kids may have a ratio of 40 or 45 to one. A ratio of two to one or one to one is ideal, he said. He pointed out that cutting dietary fat lowered the risk of breast cancer recurrence 24 percent.
     Sleep is "super relevant" for health and especially for cancer patients, according to Dr. Block. Being exposed to light while sleeping increases breast cancer incidence by 22 percent because light suppresses melatonin. Using black shades with velcro to block light from a bedroom can improve the quality of sleep, he said.
Air travel industry would be shut down
if it had a record like the cancer industry
    Dr. Block posed the question, "Why are we losing the war on cancer, which costs America $225 billion a year?" He said you could fill 12 jumbo jets with the Americans who will get diagnosed with cancer today -- and another 12 jumbo jets tomorrow and the next day and the next. That's bad enough. But he said the number of people dying of cancer each day would fill three or four jumbo jets. He observed that "the FAA would shut down all flights if the prognosis for flight safety were that bad!"
     We're losing the war on cancer, Dr. Block declared, because "our system is topsy turvy" and because "there's no foundation for true prevention." Screening procedures aren't prevention because they only catch disease -- early, one hopes. But even catching it early is too late when the cancer could've been prevented in the first place.
    Dr. Block, who has seen over 18,000 patients, declared, "People don't die from cancer. They die from complications and consequences of the disease -- from things that are treatable." He listed sticky blood as an example. Sticky blood can lead to an embolism. But an integrative treatment program can change blood from sticky to slippery, which is much more healthy.
      How important is exercise in a cancer treatment program? Dr. Block declared, "No patient has done a three-mile speed walk and died the next day." That being the case, when someone has cancer it'd be an excellent idea to do a three-mile speed walk every day! Dr. Block wants all of his patients to get moving. And he even has a treadmill next to the chemo suites at his clinic.
      Dr. Block often treats his patients while they're exercising. For example, he can give a chemo drip by IV while a patient is doing yoga.
This doctor follows his own advice
    Dr. Block practices what he preaches about exercise. His favorite hobby is cold-water surfing. Believe it or not, he surfs the waves of Lake Michigan during the cold, windy Chicago winters. He has also surfed the waves off the shores of Alaska, and he even surfed 1,000 feet from glaciers in Antarctica!
    Of course, few cancer patients will follow him in that extreme hobby. But just about all cancer patients can walk three to five hours per week. For those who like to ride a bike, Dr. Block recommends 30 minutes of cycling per day.
      Dr. Block is the editor-in-chief of Integrative Cancer Therapies and the author of Life Over Cancer. For years, the Block Center for Integrative Cancer Treatment was located in Evanston, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. He recently moved his clinic to the adjacent suburb of Skokie.
Doctor apologized for not listening
    The next presentation was a panel discussion of long-term cancer survivors. Moderator Julia Chiappetta found her breast cancer herself. She'd formed the habit of checking herself for cancer, and she felt her tumor.
    But when she first saw a doctor about her concern, he gave her a mammogram, which was negative, and told her not to worry about it. She pleaded with him to do a biopsy because she could feel something wasn't right. The doctor had to apologize to her when the biopsy came back positive for stage 2 breast cancer. He promised to listen to his patients better in the future.
     Julia says mammograms are only about 50 percent accurate. She prefers other cancer detection tools: ultrasound, thermography, and MRIs. To get rid of her cancer, Julia used a natural protocol with no drugs whatsoever, and that worked for her.  For a detailed description of thermography, see our Special Report Breast Cancer Cover-Up.
They used alternatives — and lived
    Panelist Eddie Dutton, the executive director of the South Florida Cancer Association, had stage 4 neck cancer with a cancerous tongue and throat. One doctor gave him four months to live. His doctor gave him the conventional treatment -- surgery, radiation, and chemo.

Correction to previous issue
    The previous issue, #180, was incorrect when it described the beetroot supplement Neo40® Daily as  "sublingual (under the tongue)."  The lozenges should be allowed to dissolve on top of the tongue.  As always, when taking this or any other supplement you should use as directed on the packaging.  We regret the error.

    When Eddie asked the doctor about alternatives, the doctor said, "I don't know anything about it, so I wouldn't recommend it." He decided to use alternatives, including laetrile (apricot seeds), resveratrol, and hawthorne berries. These alternatives helped him get rid of his cancer.
     Panelist Billy Lewter is a prostate cancer survivor. He'd decided to get surgery but changed his mind in favor of alternatives. His doctor was shocked and offended upon learning that Billy wasn't going to have surgery. He shook Billy by the shoulders and said, "You're playing Russian roulette! You have 12 months to live."
    Billy sought treatment at the Hippocrates Health Institute, a Florida clinic. Later he went to Germany for cancer treatment at the late Dr. Hans Nieper's clinic in Hanover. Dr. Nieper gave him Venus fly trap extract and other therapies. The doctor who once told him "you have 12 months to live" was dead wrong.
     Billy has survived for 19 years without conventional treatment. Unfortunately he was recently diagnosed with lung cancer, though he's not a smoker. He hopes to beat that, too.
The doctor was talking through his hat
    Panelist Florence Ferreira learned she had cancer 12 years ago. Like Julia, she found it herself despite a mammogram that was negative. Her doctor gave her "six months to live." She never believed him. She had a sense that he was talking through his hat.
     To outlive her doctor's death sentence, she used both conventional and alternative therapies. For her, this integrative approach has worked. But two years ago she had a setback. In September of 2010 she learned about two tumors growing in her spine, pinching the nerves going to her legs. This caused intense pain. She couldn't sleep at night. She was screaming. Steroids didn't help. When the pain kept on increasing she went on morphine.
     Dr. Martin Dayton of Sunny Isles Beach, Florida, helped her get through the crisis. Florence calls him a "great doctor."
     To get rid of the tumors, she concluded that she needed extreme hyperthermia -- a treatment that's only available in Germany. So she got her passport, flew to Germany, and checked into the clinic of one of Germany's leading cancer specialists, Alexander Herzog, M.D. (I've personally interviewed Dr. Herzog and toured his clinic as well as the other top clinics in Germany. For more information, check out our Special Report German Cancer Breakthrough.)
    Florence needed wheelchair service to make it to Dr. Herzog's clinic. She had hardly slept for months. She was swollen just about everywhere. She had local hyperthermia on her spine the very first day, which gave her immediate relief. "It was pretty amazing," she said. On the third day Dr. Herzog gave her extreme whole body hyperthermia in which her core temperature was heated to 42 degrees Celsius (107.6 degrees Fahrenheit) for four hours under sedation. Healthy cells can take this kind of heat for four hours, but cancer cells can't.
Florence came back to America dancing and jumping!
    She said, "I came back to America walking, dancing, and jumping." Florence's oncologist couldn't believe it. Instead of looking into the German treatments he told her, "It HAS to be the placebo effect." What an ignorant remark!
     From the time Cancer Defeated first started in 2006, we've repeatedly and forcefully recommended hyperthermia. It's a treatment every cancer patient and everyone who might become a cancer patient (in other words, everybody) should know about. The best source of information is German Cancer Breakthrough.

World's #1 Publisher of Information About Alternative Cancer Treatments

    The youngest panelist, Johnny Cathcard, was diagnosed with brain cancer at the age of 12. He started getting headaches in sixth grade, and they became worse in seventh grade. After an MRI, a doctor told his parents, "My gosh, your son has a fist-sized tumor in his brain. We've got to cut it out now!" The next morning he was on the operating table.
    After surgery, he got heavy doses of conventional treatments, including a "super dose of chemo" 11 years ago at Sloan-Kettering. The side effects were severe, including some damage to his hearing.
     Johnny's high school cross country coach once told him, "When you get to the end of what you can do, that's where faith begins." And Johnny holds onto those words as a metaphor for life. He says "bad things often happen, but life is all about how we deal with them. Life isn't meant to be easy, it's just meant to be worth it!"
     Johnny is wise beyond his years. He says faith got him through his many health crises: faith that tomorrow will come, faith that there will be a future, faith that he's going to get to the other side.
     The panel also included Jennifer Rozman, who became a full-time caregiver when her mother was dying of breast cancer. That experience revealed her mission in life: to help people be proactive with health. She started a juicing company and brings juice to people's homes. She teaches others that connecting the mind and the body is the path to true health.
     Next issue will feature our concluding report on Anne Fonfa's excellent conference.
