Cancer and complementary medicine

In the United Kingdom, it would be illegal for anyone other than a medically qualified oncologist to treat cancer. Nevertheless, some adults opt for self-administered naturopathic treatment, ‘since chemotherapy, with all its cruel and degrading side effects, is remarkably ineffective, contributing only about 2% to the five-year cancer survival rate, which amounts to only about an extra five weeks of life over a five-year period’ (1).

Cancer is associated with impaired immune system function and consequent biological inability to naturally destroy cancer cells as they develop (apoptosis). This is the reason why conventional research that has been designed to further compromise immune system function is questionable science.

The immune system is liable to be impaired by psychological stress, dental mercury poisoning, cadmium poisoning from traffic fumes, harmful electromagnetic radiation and by environmental chemical pollution (endocrine disruption). There are many authenticated case histories in which naturopathic treatment to support the immune system in cancer patients, has resulted in so-called ‘spontaneous recovery’.

At the London Centre for Complementary Medicine, the causes of cancer are identified and addressed: treatment is selected from ranges of naturopathic preparations.

Treatment strategies used at the clinic are as follows.

1.Intestinal dysbiosis (inflammatory intestinal microflora) is treated with selected supplements of prebiotics and probiotics.

2.Naturopathic supplements are selected and prescribed to support the patients’ immune systems.

3.Budwig cream (2) made from flax seed oil and cottage cheese may be recommended to correct essential fatty acid deficiency that is liable to be associated with cancer.

4.Cancer cells have thickened cell membranes, that protect them from natural destruction by the immune system (apoptosis). The thickened cell membranes of the cancer cells enable spread of the cancer (metastasis) to other parts of the body. In order to address this problem, selected systemic enzyme therapy is prescribed to digest and thin the thickened walls cancer cell walls, which enables the cancer cells to be destroyed by the patients’ immune systems (3).

5.Herbal bloodroot preparations can be applied locally for skin cancer or taken orally for systemic cancer (4). Dr Bourne has successfully treated a skin cancer on his own ear using this approach. (See photo on the front page of the clinic website (

6.Supplements to support the immune system can be selected from homeopathic, nutritional and herbal preparations. For example, a case of breast cancer has been treated successfully with DIM (di-indole methane) to support female hormone balance, Essiac tea and a spirulina/chlorella preparation(6).

7.Over the past twenty-five years Rolf Gordon (5) has successfully treated over 5000 cancer cases. His approach is as follows.

(a) Make sure that the patient is not sleeping in a zone of earth or electromagnetic radiation (7).

(b) Eliminate pathogenic microbes in the blood with a garlic derived natural antibiotic (Allitech) and with alkalising salts to alkalise the biological terrain. At this clinic, nano silver may be prescribed instead of Allitech.

(c) Support the immune system with antioxidants, e.g. with Coenzyme Q10, Oxytech and astaxanthin.

With naturopathic complementary medicine, there are no universal cancer treatment protocols, so that double blind controlled clinical trials of treatment regimens are not feasible and treatment is selected according to practitioners’ preferences and clinical experience.

With naturopathic integrative medicine, causal diagnosis and treatment selection are achieved with electronic bio-resonance technology (vegatesting) and/or with muscle testing (clinical kinesiology). At the London Centre for Complementary Medicine, causal diagnosis and treatment selection is made initially with vegatesting and is checked subsequently with muscle testing.

For medico-legal reasons, treatment should be self-administered.
