I would say, Alternative Medicine: Berkson’s Work Curing Pancreatic Cancer, Liver Cancer and All Manner of Liver Disease, but the FDA* would put me in jail for making unsubstantiated claims. Since Berkson can’t afford to do the zillion-dollar studies required by the FDA to substantiate claims, and since I guess cured people don’t count (seriously?), any claims made about a couple of frickin’ vitamins curing cancer would be labeled “unsubstantiated”.
Maybe the FDA thinks all Berkson’s cures are circumstantial? Or luck? Yeah, that’s probably it. Luck. Something, coincidentally, Dr. Berkson’s patients seem to be blessed with an abundance of.
It’s probably just as well he doesn’t make headline news, actually. Then the AMA might run him out of the country like they did Hoxsey, Gerson and Caton, among others. I guess Big Pharma doesn’t like competition.
Hmmm. Come to think of it, I’m not wild about competition either. I’m wondering if there’s a way I could run all the other real estate brokers out of the country so I could have the entire market to myself? Need to get to work on that.
On one of my zillion forums, a woman asked for information on how to cure pancreatic cancer. One of her relatives was just diagnosed and she wants to talk to him about alternative treatments. I wrote to her (shared below) and sent it off.
Then I thought maybe some of you might know someone with pancreatic cancer or liver cancer or liver disease or any other kind of cancer and could use this information. (If you don’t now, just keep living. The sad fact is, you will.) Please share this so I feel useful. ♥ Here’s the letter:
Do some research on Dr. Burt Berkson (there are other Berksons out there). He’s healed pancreatic cancer and all manner of liver disease with LDN and ALA. My husband has a bad liver from hemochromatosis. He takes 4.5mg (about a tsp) LDN and 600mg ALA every day. He’s still with me!
Here are a few links to get you started:
✓ Berkson’s book on ALA. Available in paperback and Kindle
✓ This is a transcript of a talk Dr. Berkson gave in 2010.
✓ There’s also this story of a woman who cured her cancer using ALA, LDN and baking soda. Why not?
Best of luck to you in convincing your relative to take a chance on alternative medicine. My husband and I have lost several relatives, both sides, and, so far, none would consider it. I wanted to shake them and say, “What do you have to lose?” Maybe next time, I will. What have I got to lose, you know?
Dealing with cancer can be such a sad time in our lives (been there) or it can be victorious — fortunately, we’ve been there, too! You are in our thoughts and prayers, Janet. Please let us know how it goes for you.
God bless us, every one. If we can survive being poisoned by the USDA (GMOs), the FDA (keeping us from alternative treatments and trying to outlaw our supplements), the DEA (keeping the miracle drug marijuana — called so due to its anti-cancer and stress-relieving properties — illegal along with filling the jails with harmless pot smokers), not to mention whichever U.S. agency is behind GeoEngineering, may we all live a long and fruitful life!
See? I can end on a happy note. Sheesh.
