Sample protocol for those with stage 1 or 2 Cancer
« on: March 12, 2022, 04:02:32 pm »
Even though I only treat aggressive, metastatic (stage 3 & 4) cancer, many people ask me what I would do to eradicate non-metastatic (stage 1 & 2) cancer, especially if they wanted to see if surgery, chemotherapy, and/or radiation could be avoided. My answer is, I would exploit cancer’s known addiction to iron1 by manipulating iron metabolism in cancer cells and cancer stem cells as follows:

Diet and Lifestyle:
Proper diet and lifestyle lay the foundation to eradicating cancer and preventing its return. To learn more: www.thomashealthblog.com/?p=14640

Oral Protocol:
1. Block cancer energy metabolism by using metformin plus syrosingopine2.
2. Inhibit cancer’s two main antioxidant defense systems (glutathione and thioredoxin reductase) by using curcumin3, fenugreek4, and piperlongumine5.
3. Inhibit carbonic anhydrase 9 (CAIX) to acidify the intracellular pH, disrupt redox homeostasis, and increase vulnerability to ferroptosis by using acetazolamide6.
4. Promote ferroptosis (iron-mediated, pro-oxidative cell death) by using pentoxifylline7,8 and simvastatin9. So as not to neglect other forms of cell death, use berberine10-14 and curcumin15 to promote apoptosis, autophagy, immunogenic cell death, necroptosis, pyroptosis, and paraptosis.
5. Promote removal of tumor-cell debris by using specialized pro-resolving mediators16.
6. Augment the immunomodulatory effects of hyperthermia (see below) by using Ganoderma lucidum (reishi extract)17-20.

Intravenous Protocol:
1. Promote cancer-selective accumulation of iron ions by using low-molecular-weight iron dextran21. This is followed by…
2. Induce ferritin-degrading ferritinophagy by using artesunate22to further promote cancer-selective accumulation of iron ions. This is followed by…
3. Local radiofrequency hyperthermia to selectively “super-heat” iron-loaded cancer tissue up to 47°C with minimal-to-no damage to normal tissue21.
