My Advice for Beating Breast Cancer Naturally

by Tony Isaacs
author of
Cancer's Natural Enemy

(The Best Years in Life) Recently, a woman made a post at CureZone seeking help in combating her breast cancer. She had wisely opted to go the alternative/natural route and was in fact doing some very good things. However, she was having problems which likely were related to a Herxheimer type effect and her body and liver being overwhelmed with toxins that were being released from the cancer cells. Here is her post, followed by my answer:

Need a new protocol I can stick with without making myself sick.


I have a large lump in the right breast and am trying to find out what my best path is. I decided against the usual treatment and tried a few protocols, but have stopped them.

I got a bad rash around the breast and my eyes, nose and mouth were leaking itchy stuff with the protocols and diluted black salve application. I was juicing, taking Iodine and Essiac tea and Amazon tonic III and vitamin C plus I had cut out animal products and processed foods. I take walks in the sunshine and fresh air

At the time I thought it was the Iodine I had started taking or the oleandrin in the Amazon Tonic III, but now I'm guessing that because I did not do the coffee enemas with such a drastic change of diet and adding supplements my body was getting creative with ways to eliminate toxins.

I was getting frustrated and the lump was getting bigger so I used black salve directly applied but when I did it made a few small scabs (I wouldn't call them eschars really) and now the lumpy area is red and raw with little craters.

I'm wondering what to do to make the lump area happy, then how to put together a new start on the protocol only adding one supplement or thing my body isn't used to at a time.

The question is, what do I start with? Amazon Tonic III, iodine, herbal breast supplement, bloodroot capsules?

Also, I am very interested in water fasting, but I'm concerned to much too fast will put me back in that kind of a mess.


As is usually the case at CureZone, she got some well meaning advice from a few members - including one member who is totally enthralled with iodine who advised her tht iodine alone was the cure for her cancer. Here is my answer that I felt compelled to make:

Based on 20 years researching and writing about cancer . . .

Hi -

By way of introduction, I have researched and written about cancer for a couple of decades now (including a book that has sold in over 25 countries) and I believe that it is safe to say that thousands of people around the world are alive today thanks to the information I have researched and shared. I am also the local moderator of the Cancer Alternatives Forum here at CureZone.

First of all, I echo the other poster who congratulated you for deciding to go with alternate/natural methods for beating your cancer - and I like all of the things you are doing. Secondly, and I cannot emphasize this strongly enough, I have to advise you to not bet your life on any one single item.

I will note here that I have the utmost respect for iodine, which is a great item to include in an overall cancer-ffighting protocol, and particularly so when the cancer is breast cancer. However, I would never recommend that anyone bet their very life on iodine alone. Instead, I would highly recommend that it be incorporated into an overal anti-cancer lifestyle and supplementation protocol that included other powerful cancer fighters and immune boosters. And I will add that, based on my own two decades of research and writing about cancer, that the very first item I would reach for if I had cancer would be oleander extract. As you are aware, oleander is a primary ingredient in the Amazon Tonic III. Personally, I prefer a product called Sutherlandia OPC, which contains pure oleander extract plus the South Africa Cancer Bush, Sutherlandia frutescens.

Odds are pretty good that you were right about your body having a problem eliminating toxiins. Thus, frequent coffee enemas would be a very wise decision. In additions to opening up the critical bile ducts so that the body can properly eliminate toxins, coffee enemas also stimulate natural production of glutathione which I consider an essential item for beating cancer. When it comes to fasting, many people advise water fasting but I prefer juice fasting as a good way to begin fighting cancer. Juice fasting not only helps flush toxins, it also can help fight the cancer, booist the vital immune system and provide great nourishment all at the same time. Once the initial juice fasting period of up to a week, I advise regular juicing includine including dedicating one day per week to consuming juice and nothing else. Here is my recipe for a cancer-fighting juiced Bloody Mary:

Black salve can be very effective in eliminating cancers on or near the skin surface, but it is usually quite caustic. You might wish to consider Nerium Skin Therapy Creme, which contains as much oleander in one small 50 ml container as does a 90 capsule bottle of Sutherlandia OPC. I recommend diligently applying it three times per day. Unlike black salve, it usually does not result in any blisters, craters or scarring. I use it myself and I add some iodiine as well as a few additional drops of DMSO for even better penetration. Once the cancer has been defeated, Dr. Christopher's Complete Tissue & Bone Ointment may help greatly in restoring the affected skin area.

Among other items I would choose are turmeric (a rising superstar in natural health and anti-cancer circles), colloidal silver and N-Acetyl Cysteine (which helps produce essential glutathione). I would also very likely choose Inositol/IP6 which has been very effective in many instances in helping melt tumors away. The product Cell Forte Max 3 is a particularly good one, imo - it contains Inositol/Ip6 plus cancer-fighting and immune-boosting Maitake Mushroom and Cat’s Claw.

I firmly believe that the best plan for beating cancer is giving your body what it needs to both fight the cancer and to boost the immune system and adopting a complete anti-cancer protocol which addresses diet, optimum nutrition, supplementation, elimination and avoidance of toxins, management of stress and unresolved emtional issues, regular physical activity, daily sunshine/Vitamin D3 and time spent outdoors, etc.. And good for you in spending time outdoors and getting regular sunshine. BTW, don't overlook the value of sunshine through the eyes and indirect sunshine. Also, spend some of your time outdoors barefoot so that your feet are in contact with the soil.

In particular, eliminating and avoiding toxins is critical because toxins are far and away the number one cause of cancer.  Speaking of toxins, it would probably be a good idea for you to do a thorough liver and rest of the body cleanse, such as one of the cleanses outlined in this article:

The late, great alternative cancer pioneer Max Gerson said that he never encountered a single patient who did not also have an impaired liver. As a matter of fact, his highly successful juicing protocol was initially resulting in the deaths of half of his patients whose already impaired livers were simply overwhelmed by the flood of released toxins. Thus he began to insist on multiple coffee enemas every day and the problem was thankfully eliminated.

I highly suggest that you read this article about the highly successful oleander-centered anti-cancer protocol developed by the late great alternative cancer pioneer - and a dear friend and mentor of mine - Naturopathic PhD Marc Swanepoel:

You may also wish to take a look at the Cancer Alternatives resource page I have on my website. It contains most of the articles I have written about cancer as well as selected articles by other contributors to the site, including a few articles by Dr. Swanepoel:

While you are there, you may wish to take a look at my own highly, highly successful anti-cancer protocol which I have developed over my two decades of researching and writing about cancer and which attempts to leave no stone unturned when it comes to beating cancer:

I wish you all the very best - and if you have any questions now or in the future please send me a message. Also, please keep us updated on your progress.
