Parasites as a cause of cancer

This article gives you tips about parasites and yeasts as a possible cause of cancer - and what you can easily do to rectify the infection.


It is very unlikely that a GP will ever tell you that the cause of your illness is a parasite.

And certainly none would ever be so trivial as to tell you a parasite was the cause of your cancer. But parasites do cause cancer - they drain you of nourishment abnd produce carcinic weaste products like aflatoxins. One of the most common parasites is yeast. You need some in your body, but an excess can cause a serious problem. Yeast infections like candida, fungal infections, microbes, amoeba, tapeworms and flukes are all parasites.

And the fact that GPs never even test for these inhabitants is tantamount to negligence. New research from around the world links stomach cancers to a bacterium, and now colon cancers to microbes (Cancer Watch Spring 2006). Then, some arthritis sufferers have been aided by yeast killers like garlic, diabetics by cinnamon (known to kill yeasts in the blood stream). So it´s time to think again.

1: "I cant have a parasite!"

Think again. Youve eaten imported fruit, youve been abroad, had ice in your drinks, youve tried sushi, smoked or marinated fish. Youve eaten undercooked pork. You could have threadworms from the soil.

2: The incidence of liver fluke in British livestock has quadrupled since 1997

3: It is estimated that at least 20 per cent of cancer patients have a parasite.

4: BUT - yeasts, amoeba, fungi and microbes are all parasites as well. Normally your good intestinal flora - the friendly bacteria - feed off them at night.

5: What if the good guys are not there? Prescribed antibiotics, antibiotics in foods, steroids, cortisone, chemotherapy drugs, stress, nicotine, an acid body and over chlorinated water can kill off the good guys. Even GM food is apparently a threat.

6: Whilst fungal infection of the body may show up as yellow toenails, or thrush in women more general symptoms include feeling bloated after meals wind, irregular bowel movements, sudden fatigue, throat problems, a hangover when you didnt drink, mouth ulcers, allergies.

Open quotesReplace all sugars with Stevia - it is a natural sweetener, now permitted in the USA, but still banned in the UK(!) It is also anti-fungal and anti-parasiticClose quotes

7: 70 per cent of men and women in the West have yeast or fungal excess in their bodies.

8: Cancer clinics in the USA and UK are quite clear. Every patient has a parasite - at minimum candida. Contemporary Oncology (April 1993) said cancer patients undergoing radio or chemo often finally succumbed, not to cancer, but to Candida Albicans infestation. Every cancer patient has at least a candida or fungal infection.

9: All parasites deprive you of nutrients; all parasites produce waste products some of which are toxins and carcinogens like Aflatoxin B.

10: How can you tell if you are infected? Go and see a homeopathfor a Vega or BEST test. Have a stool test. Americans are far more conscious of this problem than the British - many Americans check every six months.

11: How do you remove the problem? 7 Steps - starve the parasite, kill the parasite, oxygenate your blood, alkalise and boost your immune system, build up the good guys & detox.

12: Starve - cut out all cows milk products; yeast products (alcohol, bread, marmite, Oxo, vinegars, mushrooms); all sugars and high glycaemic foods (like fizzy soft drinks and refined wheat); all sweet fruits (especially citrus) and cucumbers, marrows, squash; high sugar root vegetables (carrots, beetroot, parsnips).

13: Kill - wormwood, caprylic acid (coconut), Pau dArco, Neem, garlic, oregano, black walnut, clove, cinnamon (made as a drink from fresh sticks), fennel, bee propolis and hot chillies all work. (Look at the protective diets of hot climates). Try Parafree from Neways plus Wormwood. Holland and Barratt sell anti-candi for yeasts. That should sort them out!!


14: Oxygenate - yeasts and fungi thrive in anaerobic conditions Like cancer cells, they hate oxygen. Exercise, learn to breathe, create an oxygen-rich body.

15: Alkalise - cut sodium, concentrate on potassium and magnesium foods e.g. lentils, nuts, bananas, apples, green leaf vegetables.

16: Boost your immune system; Natural Vitamin C with bioflavenoids, chlorella, total Vitamin E, zinc and selenium. Fish oils with added Vitamin D help gastro-intestinal deficiencies. Essiac, astragalus, cats claw and echinacea all boost immunity and work against fungi. Take a good mineral supplement too. Take chlorella - it provides B vitamins naturally especially B-12 and seems to help natural flora thrive.

17: Build the good guys - take probiotic supplements, eat live foods. Normally you have over 300 types of good guys in your gut.

18: Cut your glucose to a minimum. It feeds yeasts and cancer cells. Replace all sugars with Stevia, where possible - it is a sweetener, which is also anti-fungal and anti-parasitic.

19: Many fungi dont leave, they just become dormant spores. Dont let them come back to life. Stick to your diet.

20:: Detox - no, not some trendy liquid in a jar - use psyllium seeds with your muesli breakfast, take an Epsom Salts liver flush, or even have colonic irrigation - its a quick way to remove all the dead cells.
