How to
prolong cancer survival

Most people with cancer undergo standard treatment including surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy in the hope that it will prolong cancer survival and lead to a full recovery.

Despite what they are told by the cancer industry, scientific research shows that for most patients, standard cancer treatments alone do not result in long-term survival. All too often patients get short-term remission followed by a deadly recurrence.

Worse still, many patients die from the treatments (chemo etc) that are more toxic than the cancer they are supposed to heal. Even those who survive these treatments experience long-term or latent side effects as a result of the treatment.

Furthermore, standard oncology only deals with the physical aspects of cancer, but research shows that addressing your physical, emotional, and spiritual health and not just the cancer itself offers the best hope for a full recovery.

Complementary and Alternative therapies
to the rescue

You don’t have to settle for these one-size-fits-all standard treatments. You have a choice of Complementary therapies (see below) that you can integrate with your standard treatment to heal your body, mind, and spirit, and prolong your survival. There are also Alternative treatment options available.

Before you even start treatment
here are 11 things worth doing.

1 Take control of your recovery 

Studies suggest that people who take control of their physical, mental, and spiritual health tend to live longer.

How to prolong cancer survival – 43 ways

1 Radically change your Diet

Science shows that poor diet causes lethal cancer stem cells to regrow but a good diet can stop that regrowth.
In this study of 239 bladder cancer patients…intake of raw cruciferous vegetables [ie Broccoli, Sprouts etc] was significantly associated with reduced disease-specific (57% reduction) and overall mortality (43% reduction). Go to Radically change your diet

2 Start daily Physical Exercise 

Being physically active after a cancer diagnosis is linked to better cancer-specific outcomes – recurrence, progression, and survival.
Was shown to extend survival in cancer patients.
Go to Start daily physical exercise

3 Vagus nerve stimulation

The vagus nerves are the main nerves of your parasympathetic nervous system which controls your heart rate etc. This 2023 study says:
For Multiple Myeloma, we found that HRV [Heart Rate Variability] was a predictor of Progression Free Survival independent of confounders. Patients with higher HRV had 5.23 times greater chances of not progressing compared to those with low HRV.
Go to Vagus nerve stimulation and cancer survival

4 Boost your Immunity

As summarized in this review…it appears that our immune system does not only naturally protect us against infectious non-self (pathogens) but also against malignant self (cancer). Many cell types belonging to both the innate (NK cells and macrophages) and the adaptive (T and B cells) immune systems seem to be involved in cancer control. 
Go to Boost your immunity

5 Increase positive emotions

Research has found that expression of emotion was related to better survival, and suppression of emotion was associated with worse survival in cancer patients.
Was shown to extend survival in cancer patient.
Go to Increase positive emotions

6 Release suppressed emotions

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) states that 85 percent of all diseases have an emotional element. 
Was shown to extend survival in cancer patients.
Go to Release suppressed emotions

7 Get Vitamin C infusions

High dose Vitamin C has been shown in numerous studies to improve quality of life and prolong survival in cancer patients.
Was shown to extend survival in cancer patients.
Go to Vitamin C

8 Get your Vitamin D level up to around 125 ng/ml

Why? Vitamin D is crucial to your immune system. Many studies show worse outcomes for patients with low vitamin D levels.
Was shown to extend survival in cancer patients.
Go to Vitamin D

9 Reduce your risk of Cachexia

Cachexia affects 50% – 80% of advanced cancer patients, with no effective treatments to date. Here are things that may help.
Was shown to extend survival in cancer patients.
Go to Reduce Cachexia risk

10 Identify and remove your cancer‘s fuel

One of the first steps in reversing cancer is removing the things that promote its growth and spread, such as a bad diet.
Was shown to extend survival in cancer patients.
Go to Identify what is fuelling your cancer

11 Keep your Blood Lipids and Sugar at healthy levels

Why? According to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center cancer feeds on fats and Glutamine. Cancer also feeds on glucose.
Was shown to extend survival in cancer patients.
Go to Keep your Cholesterol and Triglycerides at healthy levels

12 Deepen your spiritual connection

Research shows that in cancer care, being spiritual can have a powerful positive effect on your outcome.
Was shown to extend survival in cancer patients.
Go to Deepen your spiritual connection

13 Use herbs, spices, and supplements

In this study 985 stage 4 Esophageal cancer patients were analyzed, including 74 chinese herbal medicine (CHM) users and 911 non-CHM users. The use of CHM was associated with a higher 5-year overall survival rate than CHM nonusers…the overall median survival time was about 7 months longer among CHM users. Additionally, the risk of all-cause mortality was lower among CHM users. Was shown to extend survival in cancer patients. Go to Use herbs and supplements

14 Remove or avoid parasitic infections

About 17 per cent of cancers are known to be caused by parasites, the real figure could be even higher. According to this study, cancer patients run a great risk of developing enteroparasitic infections, as they are more susceptible to opportunistic agents due to anticancer treatment and are already immunocompromised because of the disease itself. These opportunistic infections are usually more severe in this group of individuals, and may even lead to fatal complications. Of the 73 participants in the study, 45 (61.6%) were positive for one or more parasitic specie. Go to Remove or avoid parasitic infections

15 Heal your gut – Rebuild your microbiome

Why? Research has demonstrated the importance of the Gut Microbiome on cancer progression and treatment outcomes.
Go to Heal your gut

16 Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

This review says: We included 19 trials in this review (2286 participants: 1103 allocated to HBOT and 1153 to control). For head and neck cancer, there was an overall reduction in the risk of dying at both one year and five years after therapy. See Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

17 Hyperthermia

This Study says: Significant improvement in clinical outcome has been demonstrated for tumours of the head and neck, breast, brain, bladder, cervix, rectum, lung, oesophagus, vulva and vagina, and also for melanoma. Additional hyperthermia resulted in remarkably higher (complete) response rates, accompanied by improved local tumour control rates, better palliative effects and/or better overall survival rates.
More about Hyperthermia

18 Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)

A large scale review of research by Australia and Chinese University scientists has proved with thousands of studies using hundreds of thousands of cancer patients that Chinese herbal medicine offers significant treatment for most types of cancers – including breast cancer.
In this study, 1132 patients with prostate cancer were enrolled.
Compared with TCM nonusers, patients who use TCM for more than 50 days have a lower risk of death. The risk of death in patients who used TCM for 50 to 200 days and ≧200 days decreased by 31% and 39%, respectively. See Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM)

19 Sonodynamic and Photodynamic Therapy Combined

A combination of sonodynamic therapy and photodynamic therapy is a new composite cancer therapy. This study states: Clinical studies revealed that PDT can be curative particularly in early-stage tumors. It can prolong survival in inoperable cancers and significantly improve quality of life. Minimal normal tissue toxicity, negligible systemic effects, greatly reduced long-term morbiditySee more at Sonodynamic and Photodynamic Therapy Combined

Can I use supplemental antioxidants during chemo/radiotherapy?This study concluded: 280 peer-reviewed in vitro and in vivo studies, including 50 human studies involving 8,521 patients, 5,081 of whom were given nutrients, have consistently shown that non-prescription antioxidants and other nutrients do not interfere with therapeutic modalities for cancer. Furthermore, they enhance the killing of therapeutic modalities for cancer, decrease their side effects, and protect normal tissue. In 15 human studies, 3,738 patients who took non-prescription antioxidants and other nutrients actually had increased survival.

20 AHCC (a natural immune-modulating compound)

In this study a total of 269 patients with histologically confirmed liver cancers were studied. All of them underwent resection of a liver tumor. Of the 269 patients, 113 received AHCC orally after undergoing curative surgery (AHCC group). The AHCC group had a significantly longer no recurrence period …and an increased overall survival rate when compared to the control group. See AHCC

21 Avemar

Avemar is an all-natural, clinically proven, dietary supplement for cancer patients. Medical experts recognize Avemar as an effective supportive cancer treatment and recommend complementing the diet of concerned patients with Avemar.
This study reporting on 170 patients with colorectal cancer says the results showed significantly enhanced survival and reduced metastases formation in the Avemar treated group even though the prognostic factors of the patients were worse in this arm. See Avemar

22 Hydrazine Sulphate (Sehydrin)

This study says: In 38 patients with glioblastomas Sehydrin administration resulted in at least tumor stabilization and tumor regression in 27 (71%)Survival time was increased from 9 to 16 months (average, 13+0.6 months)–twice the survival as after usual surgery. Eight (30%) of those 27 patients survived more than 19 months and one patient–more than 30 months. See Hydrazine Sulphate 

23 Melatonin (natural hormone)

This study included 250 metastatic solid tumour patients who were randomised to receive Melatonin (20 mg/day orally every day) plus chemotherapy, or chemotherapy alone. The 1-year survival rate and the objective tumour regression rate were significantly higher in patients concomitantly treated with Melatonin than in those who received chemotherapy alone. The tumour response rate in chemo + melatonin group was 42 out of 124 patients versus 19 out of 126 in the chemo only group. 1-year survival: 63 out of 124 patients in the chemo + melatonin group versus 29 out of 126 patients in the chemo only group. Laboratory studies show that Melatonin can target cancer stem cells. See Melatonin

24 Vitamin E (Tocotrienols from Annotto)

This study of 23 patients is the first to demonstrate that tocotrienol supplementation in combination with chemotherapy is effective in multi-resistant ovarian cancer. Many patients with advanced recurrent ovarian cancer have a short life expectancy and their condition deteriorates rapidly with a progression free survival of 2 to 4 months and a median overall survival of 5 to 7 months. In this study, the progression free survival increased to 7.8 months and a median overall survival of 12 months. Laboratory studies show that Vitamin E can target cancer stem cells. See Vitamin E

How to get the following off-label drugs

25 Antihistamines

This study included all 54,406 women with Breast Cancer [BC] diagnosed in Sweden 2000 through 2008. It concluded:
This population based registry study shows that women treated with second generation antihistamines have a better overall and BC specific survival compared with non users regardless of age, history of allergy, ER status and tumor stage. The results are strongest for desloratadine use and use after BC diagnosis.
There is some concern that the antihistamine Cimetidine has estrogenic properties. If you have a certain type of breast cancer or prostate cancer, for example, this may be a concern.
See Antihistamines

26 Artemesinin (Anti-Malaria drug)

This study involving 23 patients tested the anti-Colorectal Cancer properties of oral artesunate (a derivative of Artemisinin). Patients planned for curative surgery were randomised to receive either 14 daily doses of oral artesunate or placebo. During a median follow up of 42 months, there were 6 recurrences in the placebo group and 1 recurrence in an artesunate recipient. The survival beyond 2 years in the artesunate group is estimated at 91% whilst surviving the first recurrence in the placebo group is only 57%. Laboratory studies show that Artemisinin can target cancer stem cells. See Artemesinin

27 Aspirin

An article in Oncology Times reported on a study involving 3,193 patients: Regular aspirin use after diagnosis of prostate cancer is associated with a decreased risk of prostate cancer mortality and metastases, according to new data from the large observational Physicians’ Health Study (1982-2009) reported at the 2016 Genitourinary Cancers Symposium (Abstract 306). “Among men with prostate cancer, regular aspirin use after diagnosis was associated with a 39 percent decreased risk of dying from prostate cancer,” Laboratory studies show that Aspirin can target cancer stem cells. See Aspirin

28 Beta-blockers

This study retrospectively reviewed 722 patients with non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) who received radiotherapy concluded:
…the incidental use of beta-blockers in this group of patients with NSCLC was associated with improved distant metastasis-free survival, disease-free survival, and overall survival
This study says: Propranolol was also shown to have an effect on metastasis to the brain – the other major site of interest in breast cancer. This meta-analysis provides evidence that beta blocker use can be associated with the prolonged survival of cancer patients, especially patients with early-stage cancer treated primarily with surgery.
This study concluded…we observed reduced cancer-specific mortality among prostate cancer patients taking beta-blockers. See Beta-blockers

29 Bisphosphonates (anti-hypercalcemia drugs)

This article in The Lancet referenced a meta-analysis of randomised trials of bisphosphonates involving 18,766 women over a 20 year period. In postmenopausal women, the addition of bisphosphonates resulted in highly significant reductions for bone recurrence (6·6% vs 8·8%) and for breast cancer mortality (14·7% vs 18·0%) at 10 years…This landmark report on breast cancer treatment should lead to widespread adoption of bisphosphonates as a standard of care for the adjuvant therapy of early-stage breast cancer in postmenopausal women. See Bisphosphonates

30 Metformin (type 2 diabetes drug)

This 2020 study recruited 2,400 patients with gastric cancer undergoing gastrectomy…Among them, 651 had type II Diabetes and 1749 patients did not have Diabetes. The study showed that the use of Metformin significantly reduces the risk of tumour recurrence and confers cancer-specific survival benefits in patients with stage III Gastric Cancer and Diabetes after surgery.
This meta-analysis looked at 18 studies (8 on lung cancer risk and 10 on lung cancer survival) were included. Metformin treatment was associated with decreased lung cancer incidence and increased lung cancer survival. This study reviewed the records of 460 consecutive patients with pathologically proved stage I-III breast cancer…Regarding overall survival, diabetic breast cancer patients treated with metformin as antidiabetic agent had longer mean overall survival time (59.71 months) than diabetic patients not treated with metformin (41.79 months) and nondiabetic patients (52.0 months).
This 2020 Meta-Analysis of 12 studies involving 35,346 Pancreatic Cancer patients found significant differences in overall survival between Pancreatic Cancer patients who were treated with metformin and underwent pancreatectomy and those who underwent pancreatectomy without metformin use.
Laboratory studies show that Metformin can target cancer stem cells.
See Metformin

31 Mifepristone (abortion pill)

Case Report: We show long-term high-quality survival following single-agent treatment with a progesterone receptor antagonist in two cases of advanced metastatic cancer.
This study of 34 ovarian cancer patients treated with Mifepristone says: Nine (26.5%) of these patients had a response to Mifepristone. Three (9%) patients had a complete response, and six (17.5%), a partial response…Laboratory studies show that Mifepristone can target cancer stem cells. See Mifepristone

32 Heparin (anticoagulant)

This 2020 study says: A multicenter clinical trial exploring the influence of anticoagulant treatment in 277 small cell lung cancer patients showed that 5-week subcutaneous heparin treatment led to substantially improved survival rates compared to no treatment at 1, 2 and 3 years (40% vs. 30%, 11% vs. 9%, and 9% vs. 6%, respectively)…Additional studies have found evidence that heparin and its derivatives reduce the emergence of metastatic lesions and prolong survival in cancer patients.

33 Orasal (Trade Name Salicinium®)

This study article says: Results from 675 cancer patients show that Salicinium effectively treats many different types of cancer, significantly extending survival for all groups studied (including a majority of patients with treatment-resistant Stage IV cancer).
Reno Integrative Medical Center explains: Salicinium is a natural plant based extract, a complex sugar molecule that is harmless to normal cells in the body because they cannot absorb a “complex glycome”. Circulating tumor cells are at the forefront of an ongoing or escalading malignant process.  Salicinium affects these cells first, therefore, contributing to halting the spread of malignancy. See Salicinium

34 Paw Paw  Cell-Reg (PawPaw extract)

This study of 94 patients says: James Forsythe, M.D., Director of the Cancer Screening and Treatment Center of Nevada, in Reno, agreed to recruit test subjects for us among his stage 4 cancer patients. Dr. Forsythe found that the paw paw capsules, named Paw Paw Cell-Reg, when given one capsule qid, stabilized a number of patients with advanced breast, lung, prostate, lymphatic, and colorectal cancers…The product was effective whether used alone or as an adjuvant with other treatments including IGF-I and insulin-potentiation. Evidence of effectiveness included reductions in the blood levels of tumor antigens, measurable decreases in tumor sizesinhibition of further metastases, weight gain, increased mobility, enhanced energy, and increased duration of survival. See more at Paw Paw  Cell-Reg (PawPaw extract) 

35 Polysaccharide-K (PSK) (medicinal mushroom extract)

This study Two hundred and twenty five patients with Non Small Cell Lung Cancer treated with Radiation followed by administration of PSK between were analyzed. The 5-year survival rates of patients with stages I-II and stage III disease were 39 and 26, respectively, while the non-administered responder group’s were 17 and 8%. These differences are statistically significant. See more on PSK page

36 Ukrain

The Ukrainian Anti Cancer Institute has this on it’s website:
Incredible results of the treatment of pancreatic cancer were achieved during clinical research studies with NSC-631570 (UKRAIN) carried out by Associate Professor Gansauge and Professor Hans Beger in Germany. They showed that 30% of pancreatic cancer patients lived more than 5 years after treatment with NSC 631570, while medical statistics show that after conventional treatment methods patients with the same diagnosis live only 4-6 months and only 2.2% of them reach the 5-year-survival rate.
This study, published in the European journal of Cancer states:
In a randomised study 108 patients with advanced colorectal cancer, average 61.2 years, were included. 54 patients were treated with Ukrain as monotherapy and 54 with 5-fluororacil. The therapy results (clinical, haematological, immunological, biochemical) show that Ukrain has favourable properties in the treatment of colorectal cancer and clearly show advantages in contrary to 5-fluorouracil. Stability of the disease was reached in 88.8% and only 27.7% in the control group. The pretreatment with Ukrain facilitated the operability of the patients. See UKRAIN

37 Anvirzel (Oleander extract)

This 2014 study presented case reports of 9 metastatic cancer patients who received the extract Nerium oleander. Cases included 4 colon cancer patients, 3 pancreatic cancer patients (1 neuroendocrine and 2 adenocarcinoma), 1 renal cell carcinoma and 1 lung cancer patient…The renal cell patient experienced tumor regression for 12 months with the extract alone; the 3 pancreatic cancer patients and a colon cancer patient experienced disease stabilization. Survival times were extended for all patients with survival times ranging from 32 months to 11 years for these patients with metastatic disease.
Laboratory studies show that Oleander extracts can target cancer stem cells. See Anvirzel

38 Cesium Chloride (inorganic compound)

This study reports on 50 patients treated with Cesium. An impressive 50% recovered from various cancers, i.e., cancer of unknown primary, breast, colon, prostate, pancrease, lung, liver, lymphoma, ewing sarcoma of the pelvis and adeno-cancer of the gallbladder. A consistent finding in these patients was the disappearance of pain within the initial 3 days of Cs-treatment.
This study warns:
Cesium chloride, which is used as alternative therapy by some cancer patients, has been determined to have significant adverse effects, especially cardiovascular effects. See Cesium Chloride

39 Homeopathy

This study, published in INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF ONCOLOGY reported on 15 patients (9 male, 6 female) with intracranial brain cancers who were treated with…homeopathic preparations… Of the 9 patients with glioma, 8 (88.9%) showed complete regression, and the other patient showed partial regression. Two of the three patients with meningioma showed prolonged arrest of their tumors and the third had complete regression. The one patient with craniopharyngioma and the one patient with pituitary tumors both showed complete regression, and the 1 patient with neurinoma has had prolonged arrest of her tumor as determined by computed tomographic scan images.
See Homeopathy

40 Sodium Dichloroacetate

This study says: Observational data collected from more than 300 cancer patients with advanced disease revealed measurable benefits from DCA therapy in 60%-70% of cases…Based on our clinical experience, combined with existing publications, off-label DCA therapy is an option for patients with limited available conventional treatments, once they understand and accept the risks and benefits of therapy.
This study says: Interestingly, DCA could significantly affect cancer stem cell fraction and contribute to cancer eradication.

Cancer Stem Cells
Senescent Cancer Cells

42 Cancer Stem Cells (CSCs).

CSCs have been shown in numerous cancer models to be involved in tumor development, cell proliferation, and metastatic dissemination, while possessing a capacity for sustained self-renewal. CSCs, which typically represent a small proportion of total cells of a given tumor, also exhibit resistance to chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Indeed, exposure to these treatments may promote “stemness” in nonstem cancer cells, which may explain why successful therapeutic reduction of tumor bulk will often fail to produce clinical improvement, says this 2016 study.

How can we target Cancer Stem Cells?
According to this 2020 study: Cancer stem cells (CSCs) contribute to the initiation, recurrence, and metastasis of cancer; however, there are still no drugs targeting CSCs in clinical application.

This scientific review says natural products, including those found in common foodstuffs have demonstrated the ability to modulate pathways responsible for Cancer Stem Cells function and inhibition.

Top Five
This 2020 study says: Certain phytochemicals, in particular
epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG),
resveratrol and
have been shown to interfere with…CSC pathways…leading to elimination of CSCs.

In addition, the following targeted Cancer Stem Cells in lab studies
Ashwagandha (supplement)
B-carotene (supplement)
Bee Propolis (containing Caffeic Acid Phenethyl Ester (CAPE))
Delphinidin (Raspberries and Blueberries)
Falcarinol and falcarindiol (carrot and parsley)
Feverfew and Green Chirayta (plant extracts)
Ginger (spice)

43 Senescent Cancer Cells 

According to this 2020 Review in Trends in Cancer, a significant number of commonly used cancer interventions have been associated with the induction of cellular senescence in either tumor or non-tumor cells and tissues.

Therapy-induced senescence can cause cancer metastasis and relapse and several adverse reactions to cancer treatments.

How can we target Senescent Cancer Cells?

Senolytics are a class of drugs that selectively clear senescent cells.  Studies have identified the following compounds as Senolytics:

Curcumin (natural plant compound)
Berberine (a plant extract)
Nicotinamide riboside (a micronutrient)
Piperlongumine (a natural alkaloid)
Tocotrienols (a type of vitamin E nutrient)
Danazol (androgenic hormone)
Foxo4 (protein) inhibitors
HSP90 (protein) inhibitors
Navitoclax (ABT263) (anti-cancer drug)
Dasatinib (chemo drug) and Quercetin (a plant pigment) – used in combination.
Phloretin (a crystalline substance)
Selective BCL-XL inhibitors A1331852 and A1155463 ( targeted therapies)

Surviving against all the odds.

For her ground-breaking book Radical Remission: Surviving Cancer Against All Odds Dr Kelly Turner, PhD studied over 1000 cases of people who recovered from cancer against all odds. She found 10 key factors that most of these people used to get better:

  1. Radically changing your diet
  2. Taking control of your health
  3. Following your intuition
  4. Using herbs and supplements
  5. Releasing suppressed emotions
  6. Increasing positive emotions
  7. Embracing social support
  8. Deepening your spiritual connection
  9. Having strong reasons for living
  10. Daily physical exercise

1. Some cancer therapies can conflict with others. Do not start ANY therapy without consulting your doctor to ensure it’s safe and beneficial to do so.
2. Just because any given therapy worked for someone else does not necessarily mean it will work for you.
3. Although there are many viable cancer treatments, there isn’t a “best” treatment for a certain type or stage of cancer.
