20 tips on parasites and cancer

This article gives you tips to understand and eradicate parasites, pathogens and yeasts from your body; after all they can be causes of cancer. 


A parasite can refer to a virus, pathogenic bacterium, microbe, yeast or a real parasite. 

Certainly no Doctor would ever be so trivial as to tell you a parasite was the cause of your cancer. But parasites, and even pathogens and yeasts do cause cancer - they drain you of nourishment and produce toxic and even carcinogenic chemicals and aflatoxins. For example, pathogens like Fusobacterium are known carcinogen producers and are implicated in colorectal cancer. Two bacteria (Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus epidermis) have been found in breast cancer tissue. Research has clearly linked stomach cancers to Helicobacterium pylori.

And the fact that GPs never even test for these inhabitants is tantamount to negligence. Almost two thousand five hundred years ago, Hippocrates told us "All disease begins in the gut". Have we learned the lesson yet?

1: "I can´t have a parasite!"

Think again. You´ve eaten imported fruit, you´ve been abroad, had ice in your drinks, you´ve tried sushi, smoked or marinated fish. You´ve eaten undercooked pork. You ate a salad in that cafe by the sea - how did they wash the lettuce? You could have threadworms from the UK soil. The incidence of liver fluke in British livestock has quadrupled since 1997. A parasite Borrelia bergdorferi was found in every case of brain cancer studied, and in Alzheimer´s too.  Go to: More about Parasites and cancer

2: Research has shown that people who have food poisoning (for example, Salmonella or Listeria), even after it is killed off, have slowly increasing levels of E Coli present. This leads to Crohn´s, a higher risk of colorectal cancer and a shorter life. E. coli has been found in breast cancer tissue. It´s not found in healthy breast tissue.

3: It is officially estimated that at least 20 per cent of cancer patients have some sort of parasite, directly causing the cancer. viruses are the main culprits, officially. 

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.Your gut bacteria can prevent or encourage illness. If you have any sort of gut trouble - See: Heal Your Gut.

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 didn´t drink, mouth ulcers, allergies.

Open quotesYou could replace all sugars with Stevia - it is a natural sweetener, now permitted in the West. 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. See: Can candida cause cancer?

8: Private cancer clinics around the world are quite clear. Almost 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". Infestation - caused by the orthodox cancer treatment, if you didn´t have it already.

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 homeopath for 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, hold with effective and active probiotics, replenish your lost commensal bacteria, feed the good guys to boost levels of good bacteria.

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

13: Kill - use sweet wormwood, caprylic acid (coconut), Pau d´ Arco, Neem, garlic, black walnut, cloves, fennel, bee propolis and hot chillies all work. Yeasts hate Pau d´ Arco, artemesinin, caprylic acid, oregano oil and cinnamon. (Look at the protective diets of hot climates). Call +44 (0)203 186 1006 to ask for our latest recommended parasite killer. In the UK, Holland and Barratt sell anti-candi for yeasts. You need to take the killers for at least 8 weeks. That should sort them out!!


14: Hold - use a quality probiotic that contains L. Acidophilus, L. rhamnosus and Bifidobacteria. The first two produce lactic acid to hold pathogens in check, the bifido can attack them. L. rhamnosus also heals the gut wall and ´conducts the orchestra´ - increasing the good guys, and reducing the pathogens. 

15: Replenish - use foods like Kefir, sauerkraut, unpasteurised cheese, apple cider vinegar. These will add lost commensal bacteria back into the gut. And healing your gut means you can start to heal your body.

16: Feed the good guys - people who consume the highest levels of soluble natural fibre have the highest immune systems. 

17: Use immune boosters if you need - Natural Vitamin C with bioflavenoids, chlorella, total Vitamin E, zinc and selenium. Fish oils with added Vitamin D help gastro-intestinal deficiencies. Essiac, Biobran MGN-3, beta-glucans, astragalus, grape seed extract, cat´s claw and echinacea all boost the immune response. 

18: Cut your glucose to a minimum. And lactose in cows´ dairy. They feed yeasts and cancer cells. Replace all sugars with Stevia, if you have to - it is a sweetener, which is also anti-fungal and anti-parasitic.

19: Many fungi don´t leave, they just become dormant spores. Don´t let them come back to life. Stick to your diet.

20:: Detox - no, not some trendy liquid in a jar - use psyllium seeds and flaxseed with your green juices and smoothies (time to get a Nutribullet), take an Epsom Salts liver flush, or even have colonic irrigation - it´s a quick way to remove all the dead cells.
