Can You Cure Cancer, Hepatitis C, and Allergies With One Supplement? Several years ago, I told you about a miraculous extract from a carnivorous plant, the Venus Fly Trap. In the 1970s, German physician Helmut Keller was looking for alternative ways to treat cancer. He wanted to avoid the toxic chemicals produced by the drug companies.
He marveled at the Venus flytrap’s ability to digest protein (insects) without harming itself and without a digestive system. How can a plant completely digest an insect without a digestive system?
Dr. Keller found that the compounds in Venus flytrap work on primitive and unshielded protein, such as those found in insects and microorganisms. Well, cancer is also a primitive cell with lots of irregular protein.
And cancer cells actually leak protein. Could Venus flytrap digest malignant cells the way it does animal protein? And could it do so without damaging normal cells? The answer is a resounding YES! Today, Venus flytrap is marketed as the herb Carnivora.
Dr. Morton Walker, a medical journalist, has detailed amazing cures of life-threatening diseases with Carnivora from firsthand interviews and travels to Dr. Keller’s clinic. Dr. Walker estimated at least a 45% significant response rate to cancer with Carnivora alone.
Dr. Keller said the results are much higher with integrated approaches. Dr. Keller also claims that President Ronald Reagan used an extract from the Venus Fly Trap to successfully keep malignant polyps from returning.
In my first article on Carnivora, I wrote: "Dr. Keller believes the key compounds are droserone (D), plumbagin (P), and hydroplumbagin, also found in other carnivorous plants.
These remarkable and hard-to-make compounds are powerful oxidation catalysts, not dissimilar to the famous Koch catalysts. “In the 1930s, Dr. William F. Koch was using catalysts to speed oxidation in cells.
He cured many dreaded diseases. His successes created political problems forcing him to emigrate to Brazil to continue his work. “D and P modulate the immune system.
That is, they lift a weakened immune system, or stimulate a proper balance of activation and suppression. Too little of the former can lead to cancer and infection.
Too little of the latter can lead to ‘autoimmune’ disease. D and P also increase natural killer counts and function, essential in the defense against chronic disease. These oxidation catalysts are quite possibly able to induce many of the effects of intravenous and more expensive oxidation therapies in your body.”
Since my original report, I’ve had the opportunity to follow the use of this incredible extract with many people. And the results have been fabulous. In this issue, I’d like to show you how I’ve seen it used with success in Lyme disease, cancer, and other conditions.
When Second Opinion reader Richard Lawrence, 88, of Maryland went to see his doctor, he was in rough shape. He was sick with “terrible malaise” and had lymphatic swelling under his arms. His doctor diagnosed Lyme disease.
After starting Carnivora liquid extract and capsules, it took only about six weeks for the masses under his arms to disappear. Then he stopped the program. Richard also has had prostate cancer since 1987, and had radiation in 1988. His PSA in July 2008 was at 9.4, which is elevated.
Richard started taking the Carnivora again. In just six weeks, his PSA dropped to 1.4. Then, in January 2009, his PSA was 1.2. And Richard’s prostate cancer case isn’t unique. Dr. James Privitera, one of the most respected doctors in alternative medicine, confirmed two apparent remissions of prostate cancer to me in his patients. Richard’s case is exciting.
But it doesn’t stop there. Leo Pauliuk, at 68, found out he had hepatitis C. His liver enzyme, AST, was 100. That’s a sure sign of liver damage. It should be less than 30. He tried ultraviolet blood irradiation, but it didn’t help much.
Supplements did help a little. Then when he added Carnivora liquid extract and capsules to his regimen, his AST promptly dropped to 26. His ferritin level, which can be a particularly nasty indicator of inflammation, fell from 500 to 150.
His doctor, from whom he refused the biopsy and interferon treatment, was incredulous and asked what he was doing. The doctor asked for him to stay in touch so that he could continue to monitor his progress.
Incidentally, medical imaging also showed that a kidney cyst had significantly reduced in size. Leo says that he can now enjoy a glass of scotch, a virtual impossibility for any hepatitis patient, and has even had as much as half a bottle with no ill effect.
While I would never recommend that for anyone, it does show how much the health of his liver has improved using this extract. He continues to maintain a daily dose of two Carnivora capsules. Hepatitis C is very difficult to treat.
We rarely see this kind of remission, especially for this long. Carnivora could change the face of hepatitis C treatment. Joanne Fiola, 58 years old of Rhode Island had a very stubborn bronchial infection that was completely unresponsive to conventional therapies.
She also had a blockage in a carotid artery that was causing pain in her left temple. She started taking Carnivora and noticed improvement immediately. The pain cleared, and within three weeks, so did the infection. Doppler ultrasound confirmed that it had cleared the obstruction.
These are all major illnesses, but what about every day illnesses, such as allergies? You’ll be amazed. Andrew Funk of Tennessee is 27. He had suffered from seasonal allergies for much of his life.
Itchy eyes, respiratory mucous, and in the past few years, sinus aching. The latter came on strong last February. He told me that he is exposed to mold in his home’s venting. Mold allergy is a growing problem around the country. Andrew started Carnivora capsules on March 19, beginning with three capsules daily. He worked up to 12 daily.
His allergy symptoms got much better after the first week. All of his symptoms went away. But when he ran out of the supplement, the symptoms came back. However, they were mild compared to what they had been prior to taking the Carnivora.
After restarting the supplement, the symptoms cleared and have remained so since I last spoke to him in May. This is the first time in years he has felt so good during the spring season. He also recommends Antronex (Standard Process Company) as well, especially for coughing and sneezing.
Carnivora has unique compounds that act as a modulator to your immune system. It has potent pro-oxidant phytochemicals. These are not free radicals. They are compounds that can have similar effects in your body to what oxidation therapy does.
There are many more case reports on Carnivora taking care of Lyme disease, chronic fatigue, and breast cancer. It has even helped a bad case of ulcerative colitis. But I want to end with two incredible cases. One woman, I’ll call her Anne, had terminal ovarian cancer.
Her CA-125, one of the primary tumor markers for this cancer, was 79 on January 17th, 2005. It rose fast and hit 1,577 on March 28th, eleven days after starting Carnivora.
Nearly a month later, the tumor marker was near its peak at 2,586. You’d think that the program was not working. But sometimes looks can be deceiving. A spike in tumor markers can indicate tumor die off.
That’s exactly what happened. On May 25th, the CA-125 level had taken a nosedive. It was down to 820. By July 1st, it was down to the normal range at 28. On July 28th, it was 16. Unfortunately, Anne didn’t follow protocol.
Once in the normal range, you should continue on a full Carnivora program afterward. Anne didn’t do this. She stopped using it and the cancer, only then, returned. A full maintenance program (beginning at 15 capsules per day) should continue for at least two to three months (maybe four); then permanent maintenance of three to six capsules per day.
Jane (not her real name), 66 years old of Toronto, noticed a sore, painful lump in her breast in May 2003. A biopsy confirmed it was cancer. She had a 1.6 cm tumor surgically removed. She went to Germany to have a biological treatment.
But it was unsuccessful. When she returned to the States, the pain and soreness returned to her breast. The lump had grown. She lost weight. Three different doctors recommended immediate hospitalization.
She refused. Instead she started using Carnivora, taking two capsules three times a day. Two days and six dosages later (and one infusion of 25 grams of vitamin C), she returned to her doctor who confirmed that the pea-sized tumor had disappeared! Just to be safe, he did an ultrasound.
It showed no tumor, no mass, nor any abnormality. Two other doctors confirmed his findings. “One week later,” she told me, “I began taking 50 drops of Carnivora pure liquid extract three times a day for one month, intermittently alternating with my six capsules-a-day regimen.”
tumor did not return as long as she took the Carnivora. She says, “It’s a miracle; I owe my life to Carnivora!” Unfortunately, she stopped Carnivora about a year ago, and tells me that a new growth has developed.
She wishes now that she had not stopped it. You can read all the details about Carnivora on my website. Simply login and type Carnivora in the search box. This is truly a miraculous phytonutrient that has the power to bring life back to a stalled immune system. It’s not a specific treatment for any one disease.
It is not “the cure” for cancer. However, getting your immune system online is the best specific treatment for most any ailment you might have! And that includes cancer. Years ago, European research found that Carnivora in capsules modulate the immune system.
That means it will stimulate your white blood cells to do what they are supposed to do. The liquid extract may do more. Research suggests that it can strip off proteins from abnormal or infected cells (not normal cells), which stimulates them to commit cell suicide (apoptosis).
I often tell my patients to forget the name of their disease. Names are just labels. The real problem is a failed immune system or diseased cells that have failed to die. Carnivora dosing is variable for different conditions.
I suggest that you seek the advice of an integrative physician familiar with the product and follow his/her advice. For general immune support, I’ve been pleased with the performance of three capsules, three times daily.
About the Author:
Dr. Robert Jay Rowen, a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Johns Hopkins University and graduate of the University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine is internationally known for his work in the field of complementary/alternative/integrative medicine. He is affectionately known as the “Father of Medical Freedom” for pioneering the nation’s first statutory protection for alternative medicine in 1990 in Alaska, against a concerted opposition from the organized medical community and an imported “quackbuster.”
A few years later, the Alaska governor appointed him to a term on the state medical board against overwhelming opposition from the medical establishment. His appointment was ultimately confirmed by the legislature with overwhelming public support. The rare medical freedom he enjoyed in Alaska enabled him to greatly expand knowledge and experience in a multitude of disciplines and therapies not normally found in medicine.
Jumping into alternative medicine in 1983 through a practice in acupuncture, he quickly expanded to nutritional medicine, chelation therapy, oxidation therapy, homeopathy and herbal medicine, and took intensive training in neural therapy and prolotherapy to help treat and eliminate acute and chronic pain. Alaska’s laws enabled him to work extensively with innovative cancer therapies, ozone, and ultraviolet blood irradiation therapy. He is internationally known and respected for training hundreds of open-minded physicians in these techniques from around the world.
In 2001, he became editor in chief of Second Opinion, one of the nation’s leading monthly publications revealing the frontiers of medicine. Thus, he reduced his practice load considerably to write and teach, and relocated from Alaska to California where he works part time with his like minded talented wife, Terri Su, MD at her Santa Rosa office, Radiant Health Medical Center, in the north Bay area.
You are cordially invited to journey with him into the frontiers of medicine with a free past issue of Second Opinion. Dr. Rowen has authored numerous articles and some of which may be read online.
