Cancer Is a Metabolic Disease

What does that mean? It means that the fundamental abnormal condition driving cancer growth and development is a disorder of metabolism. The conventional approach to cancer is to treat it as an invader that must be killed with highly toxic therapies that significantly damage the patient (and the patients immune system) in the process of killing the tumor.

A significant new approach to defeating cancer is to treat it as exactly what it is, abnormal metabolism. There are a number of natural compounds such as DCA (dichloroacetate), salicinium, butyrate and others that kill cancer cells by shutting down their energy production pathways or by triggering apoptosis (cell suicide). A specific diet can also be used as a tool. The very important factor here is that they are also non-toxic to normal cells when used properly.

“Why add oxidative therapies or (oxygen stress) to the body?”


Normal cells have metabolic mechanisms to deal with and neutralize oxidative stress. However, cancer cells and many microorganisms that are preying upon the body  cannot handle this stress and therefore succumb to it.

  • This is an excellent therapy to help isolate and treat abnormal cells while not destroying normal ones.

Laetrile as a Cancer Therapy


Amygdalin, or Laetrile, is lethal to cancer cells.  This is because cancer cells secrete the enzyme beta-glucosidase which releases the poisonous cyanide otherwise locked in laetrile, into the inside of the cell.

In the absence of cancer cells the toxic cyanide is not released.

Normal cells have an enzyme called rhodanase which effectively renders the cyanide molecule  inactive.

At Reno Integrative Medical Center, we administer B-17, Laetrile,  in the context of a full-protocol and never use it alone.  Truly effective cancer treatment consists of using synergistic compounds together in a way that makes them far more powerful than if used as individual agents.
