Can I use an air purifier that produces ozone?

Yes. One should avoid specific ozone treatments for cancer that are administered in strong doses directly into the blood stream or through rectal insufflations. Those types of powerful ozone treatments should be avoided because mixing significant amounts of ozone and Protocel together can produce toxic aldehydes as a result that will make a person sick. But the ozone in air purifiers dissipates very quickly and the extremely small amount taken into the blood stream through the use of them is negligible.

Can I give myself coffee enemas while taking Protocel?

Yes. Coffee enemas, warm water enemas, and professional colonics are all compatible with Protocel as long as no vitamins, minerals or herbs are used in the enema or colonic water that might conflict with Protocel’s action.

Is it okay to get an annual flu shot while using Protocel for cancer?

I strongly advise against flu shots. This is an important question, though, because many cancer patients are encouraged to get flu shots by their doctors. There have been no studies and we have no reliable data on this issue, so I cannot report with certainty either way, but I have been surprised to find that several cases I have followed showed a definite decline in their recovery from cancer shortly after getting a flu shot. No one knows whether it is the heavy metals in flu shots that may bind to the Protocel, (the shots still contain mercury), or whether it is simply a result of the flu shot depressing the person’s immune system, which is a well-known fact. Whatever it is, though, I have observed enough bad results to come to the conclusion that people using Protocel for cancer should probably NOT get a flu shot at any time.

If I am high in heavy metals, does that mean Protocel won’t work for me?

No. Most people have heavy metals in their bodies to some degree or another. It is true that a few Protocel experts have suspected that, at least in some cases, extremely high levels of heavy metals such as mercury, cadmium, or nickel, might interfere with the Protocel to some degree. This is because very high levels of heavy metals may chelate to (or bind to) the Protocel and render the Protocel less effective. However, it is important to understand that no studies have been done on this issue and there is no proof either way. Plus, no one knows how high a person has to be in heavy metals for an interference to occur, if any. So, the best suggestion is to simply start on the Protocel and, if you know you are unusually high in heavy metals, then watch your progress carefully. If your cancer does not respond to the Protocel as well as expected, then it may be that you will need to increase your dose and/or frequency of the Protocel at some point (maybe even double it), and possibly add the supplement “Paw Paw.” One important tip, as stated above, is to avoid getting an annual flu shot. Though many vaccines have had the mercury removed from them, the average flu shot still contains mercury. So, you may be giving the Protocel a better chance of working by not getting any flu shots that could put more mercury into your body.

Will Protocel work for a cancer patient given only a week or a month to live?

Protocel will definitely start working on their cancer immediately, within hours of starting it. However, that does not mean the patient will get well. Some people start on Protocel when there is not enough time for Protocel to get rid of enough of their cancer soon enough to make a difference. In other words, a person who only has a week or month to live may already have had their vital organs so damaged by their cancer or by previous toxic conventional treatments that their body is no longer strong enough to recover, or may not even be strong enough to process out all the lysed material caused by Protocel breaking the cancer down. In other cases, some of the cancer may continue to grow before Protocel can stop all growth, and when a person has only a week or month, this just may not be enough time for Protocel to produce a recovery for them. Another scenario is that a person who has been fighting cancer for a long time within the conventional medical system may have a body that is be so damaged already by their late-stage cancer or conventional toxic treatments, that it no longer has the strength or ability to re-build new cells and recover even if the Protocel did get rid of all the cancer. So it is often not a matter of whether the Protocel can work on the person’s cancer, but whether the person has enough time left to give their body a chance to process out the lysed cancer, replace damaged areas with new healthy cells, and do all the other things that are required for anyone to get well.

This is why people often make a very big mistake when they decide to commit to conventional treatment first, thinking that they will then try an alternative approach only if the conventional method fails. What that person doesn’t realize is that it may be too late for them at that point. Overall, your chances of achieving a full recovery from cancer using Protocel or any other alternative approach for cancer are better the sooner you start on it. The longer you wait, the worse your chances for recovery will be. Having said that, I would never want to discourage anyone in late stage disease to try Protocel if they want to. Where there is life, there is hope, and some truly miraculous turn-arounds have happened before.

If Protocel is such a great treatment for cancer, why not just recommend it for everyone and forget about all the other alternative cancer treatments out there?

It certainly would NOT be a bad thing if everyone with cancer were to use Protocel as their preferred treatment of choice. But there are many factors to consider when choosing an alternative treatment and there are other effective non-toxic options out there for cancer as well. (See Outsmart Your Cancer for descriptions of other powerful approaches, such as Cesium High pH Therapy, Burzynski’s Antineoplastons, and Dr. Kelley’s Enzyme Therapy, to name just a few.) The fact is, however, that some people are not comfortable using a self-administered home approach for their cancer like Protocel, and want a doctor to help them and to oversee their progress. These people may do better by going to one of the doctors listed in my book who perform alternative treatments at their clinics. In fact, for those who are seriously ill with a high possibility of side complications due to their cancer, using an alternative treatment administered by a doctor may be critically important for them.

Also, there are many people who don’t want to give up their health supplements. There is nothing wrong with this. Some people, in fact, really NEED certain health supplements for other health challenges they have. For instance, a person with a bad heart who takes CoQ10, D-Ribose, L-Carnitine, and vitamin E to support their heart may suffer heart problems if they don’t take these supplements, but all of these are supplements that cannot be taken along with Protocel. So those types of cancer patients may do much better using a different alternative approach to cancer that is compatible with those supplements they need for their heart. And, of course, many people just want to be able to keep up their daily juicing and regular supplements because they feel better on them and would prefer an approach that allows for those supplements and daily juices. These are just a few reasons why Protocel may not be the very best treatment of choice for each and every cancer patient. But the good news is that there are many alternative non-toxic options to choose from.

Can I do regular exercise while taking Protocel?

Yes. But you should be careful to NOT OVERDO exercise while recovering from cancer using any approach. Whenever a person is causing their cancer cells to break down, the body then has to work hard to process out those broken-down cancer cell parts. The liver, kidneys, lymph system all work harder than usual to rid the body of this debris. This takes energy and is why some people get tired in the first month or two of using Protocel. The more cancer you have that is lysing, the harder your body has to work. Gentle regular exercise such as walking, easy bouncing on a mini-trampoline to keep the lymph flowing, and other very gentle workouts are fine if they do not make one feel overly tired. But pushing yourself to exercise until tired may be putting undue stress on your body if it is already working hard to process out broken-down cancer cells and trying to heal by building new cells. Use your own judgment, but I would error on the side of resting more, taking more naps, and doing only gentle exercise if it were me. As the cancer disappears more and more from the body, a person can gradually step up their exercise program if they want to.

What about skiing, dirt-biking, martial arts, tackle football, or other impact-risky sports?

I would NOT recommend these for anyone with cancer. You might want to wait until your cancer is in remission (the all-clear point) before engaging in this type of activity. There is no actual conflict between sports and Protocel as long as you do not overly tire yourself, so that is not the issue. The issue is that, as long as you still have active areas of cancer in your body, you do not want to risk any accidental impact or injury to the cancer area. This is the case no matter what type of treatment you are using for your cancer, and is because cancer seems to “take off” and spread more rapidly where tissue is damaged by injury or infection. Here are some examples to explain why I think this is true:

(1) One man was using Protocel for his metastasized pancreatic cancer and doing very, very well. The cancer was not totally gone yet, but was under control and it appeared he was on course for having a full recovery. He was feeling great, working, and living his life normally. In fact, he was feeling so great that he decided to take a kick-boxing class for exercise. Unfortunately, during one class, he got kicked really hard in the abdomen. (The area where his cancer had been disappearing up to that point.) Somehow this injury spurred the cancer to grow rapidly and he died before the Protocel could get it under control again.

(2) A woman in her forties had gone through surgery and chemotherapy for ovarian cancer before stopping all conventional treatment and switching to Protocel. Her cancer had already metastasized throughout her abdomen and three tumors had appeared in her liver. Nevertheless, she was having great success with Protocel 50 alone. After a number of months on Protocel, scans showed her abdominal tumors reducing and two of the three tumors in her liver were almost gone. She appeared to be well on her way to recovery. However, at that point, she decided to have a previously inserted chemo port tube removed from her belly that she wasn’t using anymore. The surgery was successful in removing the port, but there were complications in the healing of the surgical wound. It became infected and would not close. This surgical wound was in an area where she’d had some cancer before and suddenly, presumably due to the injury and infection resulting from the surgery, her ovarian cancer began taking off and growing again in that area. I never was able to follow-up and do not know how she did, but last I heard she was desperately trying to get her cancer under control again. This woman would have done better to wait until all signs of her cancer were gone before doing any form of surgery that wasn’t absolutely necessary.

(3) An elderly woman with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma presenting on her cheek/jaw area told me that before she had been diagnosed with cancer, she had suffered a fall and had hit her face very hard in the very spot that the cancer then appeared.

(4) A middle-aged woman told me she had been in a car accident where she suffered a very powerful bruising of her breast from the seat belt. I imagine the seat belt probably saved her life or prevented further injury, and I am all for using seat belts. However, the woman said she was diagnosed with breast cancer not too long after that and the cancer appeared in the exact place she had been seriously bruised.

So, it appears that cancer is somewhat opportunistic and thrives in areas of damaged or inflamed tissue. Thus, if I had cancer and wanted to be sure I achieved a full recovery, I would NOT subject myself to any activity or sport that might result in a strong impact as long as I still have cancer in my body. This includes activities such as martial arts, tackle football, surfing, dirt biking, bicycle riding, anything that requires a helmet, skiing, snow-boarding, etc. This does not mean you can never do any of these things ever again. It just means you might want to avoid risk to your cancer recovery by waiting until all signs of active cancer are gone before undertaking an activity that may result in an impact, fall, or injury to your area of cancer.

Can I undergo surgery while taking Protocel?

Yes. But you should probably only consider it if absolutely necessary. By this I mean that if you truly need a surgical procedure at any time, then get it. Your Protocel doses can be taken right up to the time of the surgery and started again right after the surgery. However, any significant surgery is a trauma to the body and as the FAQ above indicates, cancer may thrive in traumatized tissues. Also, there is evidence that major surgery may weaken the immune system for quite awhile afterward. So it may be wise to postpone any surgery that can be postponed until one reaches the all-clear point with their cancer according to diagnostic tests. Thus, if you have a chemo port that is not bothering you, wait until you are in remission if possible before having it removed. And if there is any other elective surgery you want to do that is not necessary, wait. It is just common sense to not stress the body if you don’t have to when you are trying to ensure a cancer recovery for yourself. But of course if you have a serious condition that requires surgery, then by all means get the surgery! Just keep taking your Protocel doses if you do.

Can I use detoxing foot baths while taking Protocel?

No. I do not recommend using foot baths while taking Protocel. Foot baths are designed to pull toxins out of the body, which in general is a very good idea. But remember, Protocel is not made of only natural ingredients. There are some synthetic ingredients in it, too. Thus, there is a possibility that the foot baths may pull out some amount of the Protocel. In fact, if you look at the websites that sell detoxing foot baths, they usually post a warning that if a person is taking any life-saving medication, they should probably not use a foot bath because the foot bath could pull that medication out of the body. Avoid detoxing foot baths while on Protocel.

Can I get body massages while using Protocel for cancer?

Yes. But make sure that your massage therapist does NOT put any pressure directly on tumors or other areas of active cancer. Oncologists are taught in medical school to touch tumors lightly, so as to not cause cancer cells to break off which might result in undue metastases. Be sure your massage therapist avoids pressing on any areas of cancer.
