Exciting new natural treatment options for lung cancer and mesothelioma

by Tony Isaacs

(The Best Years in Life) I have been corresponding with some people with lung cancer and mesothelioma lately as well as people with other lung issues where nebulizing with items such as colloidal silver, lobelia and mullein were discussed and I wondered - what about nebulizing with liquid oleander extract (and perhaps other anti-cancer items)?  I also wondered why I had not thought of that before.

Well, I just confirmed with Dr. Marc Swanepoel, the Naturopathic PhD who formulated the Sutherlandia OPC and OPC Plus oleander extract supplements, including the Sutherlandia OPC liquid extract:

Oleander extract can indeed be nebulized!

It would therefore appear that nebulizing a combination of liquid oleander extract, colloidal silver (a must) and perhaps lobelia and mullein extracts (both of which are not only wonderful for the lungs, but also have demonstrated anti-cancer activity in studies) would be a wonderful one for those who have lung cancer or mesothelioma - getting the oleander and colloidal silver pretty much directly to the cancer sites as well as the other healing items.  Plus, like other inhaled medications, the oleander and the rest would also be absorbed and sent into the blood stream.

Marc also mentioned that glutathione is absolutely essential for preventing/reversing mesothelioma. Thus N-Acetyl Cysteine, which increases glutathione levels, would be an essential addition (and I might add that coffee enemas increase natural glutathione production significantly too.).

Note:  In addition to the Sutherlandia OPC liquid extract, one can also make their own oleander extract at home by carefully following the instructions here:

The Recipe for Oleander Soup Part 1

The Recipe for Oleander Soup Part 2 - Tips and Advice

If it were me who had either lung cancer or mesothelioma, I would take all the selected items in our suggested Natural Anti-Cancer Protocol, including colloidal silver and oleander, internally and, based on what I have learned I would also nebulize silver, oleander, glutathione, lobelia and mullein. I would also take the colloidal silver and oleander rectally and perhaps sublingually, as both of those delivery methods largely bypass the digestive system (sublingually absorbed items go directly to the heart and are then distributed throughout the body in the bloodstream, rectal absorption goes directly to the liver and is then distributed throughout the body via the bloodstream). And I likely would take a Chinese herbal product called ClearLungs which has herbs which greatly heal and benefit the lungs.

The idea is to hit the cancer with everything and from all angles, so to speak, as well as get as much of the beneficial items directly to, or close to, the cancer. Plus, some people have problems working up to the maximum therapeutic doses of oleander when taking it orally and nebulizing offers yet another alternate way of delivery - at least for lung cancer and mesothelioma.

Note that the maximum daily therapeutic amount of oleander extract, based on 150 pound body weight, is 900 mg per day. Thus one would want to stay at or below that amount for the total of all forms of oleander taken (oral, sublingual, rectal and nebulized), adjusting up or down a bit based on actual body weight.


Dr. Swanepoel's message to me:

Hi Tony,

The liquid oleander can be used in a nebulizer and there is no reason to avoid using it in that manner.

As far as the 2nd story is concerned, any treatment that increases glutathione levels is advisable. This will thus include oleander. The following passage is relevant:

"While the pathogenesis of asbestos toxicity is not fully understood, it appears that reactive oxygen and nitrogen species generated by the fibers is a factor and that the endogenous antioxidant, glutathione, plays a key role in decreasing the carcinogenic potential of asbestos. Inhalation of asbestos as well as other fibers has been found to significantly decrease glutathione and its associated enzymes, as well as vitamin C, in the lung lining fluid. (1,2) In a study, N-acetylcysteine was found to protect animals from asbestos-induced oxidative damage and increase depleted glutathione levels. (3) Another animal study found vitamin C, added to drinking water, significantly inhibited the development of mesothelial and pleural tumors induced by asbestos exposure. (4) It is possible that other nutrients that increase glutathione levels such as lipoic acid, glutamine, and vitamin E might also provide a benefit. Because the primary site of inflammation is the lungs, a nebulized form of glutathione may also be beneficial." (

It is, as I believe is the case with all cancers, the depletion of glutathione that finally triggers the onset of the lung cancer in asbestosis. NAC, oleander, Vit C (5gm - 10gm per day) and nebulized form of glutathione which is available in the USA, should all help with the reduced oxygen.


Cape Town

Please note:  Raw oleander plant is very toxic.  Do not handle or ingest raw oleander or any form of oleander that has not been prepared according to the exact recipe for “oleander soup” or the commercial products.  If you are not prepared to follow the directions for handling, preparation and dosage, do not even think about attempting to make this remedy.  While raw oleander is toxic, there have been no reports of serious adverse reactions or side-effects due to properly prepared oleander extract taken according to directions.  The most common side-effects are loose bowels, slight temperature and perhaps mild nausea, all of which should dissipate quickly as the body becomes acclimated to the extract.
