Laetrile–Cancer Treatment used Sucessfully by Dr Carl O Helvie 33 years ago when he was given 6 months to live.

picture-061Although Laetrile has been a very a successful, non- invasive and non-debilitating treatment for cancer for many years it has mainly been ban from the United States by the powerful drug companies and FDA. It is a simple and inexpensive treatment that is still available in a few areas of the United States and in Mexico.
In my case I used Laetrile when my doctor said I would be dead in 6 months. Consequently, with that prognosis I decided not to subject myself to chemotherapy and surgery that would lead to pain, expense, and debilitation in what the doctors said would be my remaining days. However, the treatment was successful and I am alive and healthy 33 years later.
Laetrile is also called vitamin B17 and is found in differing amounts in many foods such as lima beans, bean sprouts, berries, nuts such as cashew and macadamia, some seeds and grains. Apricot kernels are one of the best sources and 33 years ago these were readily available at Health Food Stores but today these have also primarily been eliminated from the United States.
The theory behind the use of Vitamin B17, Amygdalin or Laetrile is that it is a nutritional deficiency in Cancer patients and this theory was developed from his research by Dr Ernest T. Krebs, Sr a prominent physician and researcher. One discussion of this theory for the interested reader can be found in Outsmart Your Cancer: Alternative Non-Toxic Treatments That Work by Tanya Harter Pierce which was just published.
In my case as discussed on the Holistic Health Show last Saturday (and later on my website) I used a variety of physical, mental and spiritual interventions to supplement the Laetrile. Today there are additional interventions supplementing this intervention as discussed by Dr Eslinger. From a discussion with Tanya Harter Pierce who will be on this show in a few weeks it is possible that Laetrile is not as effective by itself as it was 33 years ago because of the depletion of nutrients in the soil and other changes in our environment. Or it may be that these other interventions better facilitate the utilization of the Laetrile. Regardless, laetrile continues to be a successful treatment for many types of cancer-listen to the interview with Dr Eslinger or read the chapter with case histories in Outsmart Your Cancer as two examples.
