Pau d'Arco as a Cancer Treatment
Could an ancient South American Indian folk medicine cure many types of cancer? Physicians and former cancer patients say yes. This has been widely reported on in newspapers in Latin America, but not in the U.S.
South American physicians are using Indian folk medicine to successfully treat various forms of cancer - including leukemia - and other debilitating disease, but news of the cures has not made it into the American media.
According to reports published in various South American periodicals prior to the establishment-imposed blackout, the inner bark of two South American trees of the Bignoniaceae family are used successfully in the treatment of various diseases, including cancer.
A brew made with the inner bark of Lapacho Colorado (Tabebuia Avellanedae) or Lapacho Morado (Tabebuia Altissima) seems to attack the cause of the disease, according to medical reports.
Lapacho Colorado, or red lapacho - so called because of its scarlet flowers - grows in the warmer part of South America: Brazil, northern Argentina, Paraguay, Bolivia etc. It was commonly used by the medicine men of the Guarani and Tupi-Nambo Indians long before the advent of the Spanish in the New World.
Another name for the lapachos is ipes, a name used in southern Brazil. Red lapacho is called ipe roxo. Still another name for the trees is pau d'arco; red lapacho is called pau d'arco roxo. "Pau d'arco" means "bow stick"; the natives use the wood to make their bows for archery.
The red lapacho is very common in its range, the tropical lowlands.The lapacho morado, or purple lapacho, grows in cooler climes - in the Andes, for example. In its range, it is not rare.
Red lapacho was discovered by the white man's medicine some 20 years ago at Americana - a suburb of Sao Paulo, Brazil. That was where several hundred Confederate families homesteaded at the invitation of Emperor Dom Pedro II after the South was lost.

Essiac (Native American Cancer Tea)
Basic Essiac tea recipe: These are the proportions used of the four basic ingredients in the preparation of Essiac tea: Burdock Root (cut) 52 ounces, Sheep Sorrel (powder) 16 ounces, Slippery Elm Bark (powder) 4 ounces, Turkey Rhubarb Root (powder) 1 ounce. Brew tea using water in proportion of two gallons of water for every eight ounces of dry ingredients. (The mixed combination above) Boil for ten minutes, then leave covered on stove for 6 to 12 hours. (Do not microwave) Reheat a second time, without boiling. Strain and refrigerate. Do not eat 2 hours before nor after drinking tea for full effectiveness.
You can buy Essiac in stores. It attacks cancer cells. It's not as powerful as the other organic treatments suggested here, but taking Essiac along with other treatments would be good. There are no known complications from combining Essiac simultaneously with other forms of cancer treatment.
Essiac or Essiac Tea is a blend of herbs used to make a tea that is believed by some to have cancer-treating properties. Originally used by Native American tribal medicine men, the recipe was rediscovered by a Canadian nurse, Rene Caisse, R.N. in 1922, as she was attending to a woman who had previously cured her breast cancer with an herbal remedy given to her by a North American Indian shaman in the 1890s. Known as "Nurse Caisse" or "Miss Caisse", Rene named her version of the recipe — her last name spelled backwards. She continued to help people suffering with cancer up until she died in 1978.
In 1959, Caisse was working with Fawcett Publishing editor, Ralph Daigh and a major Boston hospital to conduct major testing on Essiac's effectiveness. These efforts led to her involvement with John F. Kennedy's personal physician, Dr. Charles A. Brusch, MD, of Cambridge, Massachusetts. In 1989, Dr. Brusch revealed that he had cured his own cancer using Essiac daily since his own cancer was discovered in 1984. Dr. Brusch continued Caisse's Essiac work after her death. The origin of the Essiac formula is believed to have its roots in native Canadian Ojibwa (Midewiwin) medicine. The basic Essiac formula contains greater burdock root (Arctium lappa), slippery elm inner bark (Ulmus rubra, formerly known as Ulmus fulva), sheep sorrel (Rumex acetosella), and Indian or Turkish rhubarb root (Rheum officinale).
With respect to the use of Essiac in treating cancer, the U.S. National Institutes of Health's Medline states that as of early 2008: "Currently, there is not enough evidence to recommend for or against the use of this herbal mixture as a therapy for any type of cancer. Different brands may contain variable ingredients, and the comparative effectiveness of these formulas is not known. None of the individual herbs used in Essiac has been tested in rigorous human cancer trials (rhubarb has shown some anti-tumor properties in animal experiments; slippery elm inner bark has not; sheep sorrel and burdock have been used traditionally in cancer remedies). Numerous individual patient testimonials and reports from manufacturers are available on the Internet, although these cannot be considered scientifically viable as evidence. Individuals with cancer are advised not to delay treatment with more proven therapies."
A low, daily dose of Graviola, attacks cancer. The size of the daily dose should be half of the amount which causes nausea or a headache. Since the amount which causes nausea or a headache is different for each individual, experimentation is required.
South American Cancer Tonic
I've heard of a village in South America where no one has died of cancer in hundreds of years because they make a cancer tonic. The tonic is made with these ingredients:
Red Clover blossom, Licorice root, Buckthorn bark, Burdock root, Stillingia root, Poke root, Barberry root, Oregon Grape root, Cascara Sagrada bark, Prickly Ash bark, Wild Indigo root, and Sea Kelp.
But I don't know the portions of those ingredients, or any aspect of how it's prepared. All I know is that those are the ingredients for the tonic. All those ingredients are mixed together in some manner, and prepared in some way, and given to the cancer patient, and it treats the cancer. Further investigation is needed before I can say any specifics.

Are there ALTERNATIVE "treatments" for Cancer ?
The medical and drug industries (in cooperation with the FDA) make too much money FROM cancer "treatments" (and donations to NGOs "not interested" in homeopathic remedies) to ADVERTISE any natural treatments they cannot directly regulate, nor patent and collect revenue from. There are a few ORGANIC compounds (which are NOT patented, nor patentable) that have been proven to reduce tumors (in laboratory animals and terminal cancer patients) by as much as 70% over just a few weeks.
