Lesson 20 – Dosages for Conquering Cancer

Dosages are not an exact science for it varies so much from person to person and from one medical situation to another. Great weight differences need to be estimated in. Obviously infants cannot handle what a full-grown adult could but do not tell that to pediatricians who do not pay attention to this medical common sense when they vaccinate children.

Learning to use a natural medicine (even though it might be used in an emergency room) is not the same as using and prescribing a pharmaceutical, which needs formal training in how to poison “safely.” Pharmaceuticals are mitochondria poisons with side effects that are actually the main effects if the truth be told. Natural medicine and nutritional laws run by one set of rules and pharmaceutical companies by others.

Conquering Cancer makes it easy to learn and practice natural medicine at home safely but is comprehensive enough for the physician who wants to stop poisoning people with toxic drugs and start to help them instead of harming them. 

Starting Out

Low doses do not get clinical results! Through the years, the mistake I have seen people making repeatedly is under-dosing. However, that does not mean you have to race to the top, not unless it is an emergency like stage 4 or 5 cancer. If one’s life is measured in terms of only days then there is little to lose and everything to gain by increasing dosages as quickly as possible.

Someone with Ebola or grave flu and on life support do not have as much time as a cancer patient, whose disease progresses much more slowly. If one has a serious infection and are just starting out it is a race to the top but in measured steps. One can increase, instead of day by day, every two or three hours.

When taking something for the first time, you need to start with a minimum dose, like you would putting your toes in the water to check the temperature. Powders or tonics can be mixed in varying concentrations by using more or less water. In emergency situations when you cannot afford the luxury of driving up the doses slowly, it is best to work with a health professional.

Since each substance in the protocol offers strong medical firepower, with each working in synchronicity with the others, it changes our calculations and dependency on any one agent acting alone.  

Combining methods of administration is the best way of maximizing intake of medicinals. One can use IVs, take medicinal baths, intake orally, use enemas, nebulize and apply transdermally (topically) directly on the skin depending on which protocol item you are using and what you are treating and its severity.

Care must be taken to pay attention to your own body and adjust according to how you feel. Your body’s feeling state gives much useful feedback so pay attention to it and its reactions.


Dr. Raul Vergini says, “Magnesium chloride has a unique healing power on acute viral and bacterial diseases. It cured polio and diphtheria and that was the main subject of my magnesium book. A few grams of magnesium chloride every few hours will clear nearly all acute illnesses. I have seen a lot of flu cases healed in 24-48 hours with 3 grams of magnesium chloride taken every 6-8 hours.”

Dr. Vergini wrote, “I was looking for a solution to cleanse wounds, because Dr. Delbet had found out that the traditional antiseptic solutions actually mortified tissues and facilitated the infection instead of preventing it. He tested several mineral solutions and discovered that a magnesium chloride has a great effect over leukocytic activity (Increases leucocytes to fight infection) and phagocytosis; so it was perfect for external wounds treatment.”

In 1915, a French surgeon, Prof. Pierre Delbet, M.D wrote, “From a practical standpoint, please remember that only magnesium CHLORIDE—and no other magnesium salt—has this ‘cytophylactic’ activity. The solution to be used is a 2.5% magnesium chloride hexahydrate (MgCl2-6H2O) solution (i.e. 25 grams in 1 liter of water).”

Doses are as follows:

• Adults and children over 5 years old……………….                       125 cc

• 4-year-old children………………………………….                       100 cc

• 3-year-old children…………………………………..          80 cc

• 1-2-year-old children………………………………..           60 cc

• Children over 6 months old …………………………          30 cc

• Children under 6 months old ………………………..          15 cc

In acute diseases the dose is administered every 6 hours (every 3 hours for the first two doses if the case is serious); then space every 8 hours and then 12 hours as improvement goes on. After recovery it’s better going on with a dose every 12 hours for some days.

The antimicrobial activity of MgCl2

Dr. Norman Shealy says, “Magnesium is the key to intracellular health! It is essential to keep the cell wall at minus 60 millivolts so that nerve cells are not excessively excitable. Of course, there are other nutritional problems but few as rampant as magnesium deficiency. In addition to inadequate intake, magnesium absorption is unusual---absorbed in the distal colon! And all magnesium salts are laxatives. If the gut transit time is less than 12 hours, you do not absorb it. Magnesium absorption is also partially blocked by calcium, which is preferentially absorbed.”

Cell voltage is a key concept and is tied mathematically to cell pH. As pH gets more acid, cells lose voltage meaning they lose their health and strength.

General Use of Magnesium Oil

For general use I recommend magnesium oil applied transdermally so it will bypass the GI tract thus avoiding the side effect of loose stools that will limit the amount you can take in. With regular use deficiencies will be relieved. You can use 1oz of magnesium oil on your full body per day without concern. Oil can be applied multiple times per day to areas of pain or inflammation. Massage it in for a relaxing treatment.

One spray of Ancient Minerals Magnesium Oil will provide @ 18-20 mg. of magnesium chloride.

Medicinal Baths

I am recommending doses for baths ranging anywhere from 2 to 4 pounds to even 6 pounds of magnesium flakes or a combination of flakes with Dead Sea salt and perhaps even Epsom salt. I am not talking about a nice hot magnesium bath for simple relaxation but a professional bath intended for a strong therapeutic effect. Sodium bicarbonate can be added starting from one cup to upward of a few pounds. See my essay on bath bombs, which is all about adding citric acid to the mix, which turns the sodium bicarbonate into carbon dioxide microbubbles. These baths can be taken 3 times per week.

Sodium Bicarbonate

The dosage varies with one’s pH readings of both urine and saliva and the condition being treated. Maximum dosage is right on the Arm & Hammer box, which is seven half-teaspoons a day for a full grown adult under age 60 and three half-teaspoons for people over age 60. One has to check their pH daily in the morning and after a bicarbonate bath, which can be made quite strong.

Add 1 lb or more to a bath 2x/week if heavy detoxification of radiation or other strong pollutants is needed. When treating cancer, take the urinary pH up to 8.0 and keep it there for ten days, then take a week off and start again for another 7 to 10 days. This can be repeated until one test negative for cancer or one just feels the lack of need as health returns. This is also true for infections such as a cold or flu, but often these resolve after only a few days of bicarbonate use.Then the bicarb use can be stopped. Again start out slowly and monitor your body’s reactions, always guiding yourself with the pH strips. One can take a lot of bicarbonate for a short period of time so do not hesitate.

General Rules for Using Sodium Bicarbonate

In order to secure the best results with Arm & Hammer Pure Bicarbonate of Soda (Baking Soda) when taken internally, certain simple rules must be observed. Materia Medica, pharmacology and Therapeutics (Bastedo, Page 88) clearly outlines these rules to follows:

“The effect of an alkali in the stomach will vary according to the nature of the stomach contents at the time of administration. In the resting period (after food is digested) sodium bicarbonate merely dissolves mucus and is absorbed as bicarbonate into the blood, to increase its alkalinity directly.

“In the digestive period it reduces the secretion of gastric juice, neutralizes a portion of the hydrochloric acid, liberates the carminative carbon dioxide gas, and is absorbed as sodium chloride.

“In cases of fermentation or ‘sour stomach’ it may neutralize the organic acids and so result in the opening of a spasmodically closed pylorus (the opening between the stomach and the small intestine); while at the same time it acts to overcome flatulency (accumulation of gas in the stomach and bowels).

“The time of administration must, therefore, be chosen with a definite purpose. Usually for hyperchlohydria (excess of acid) one hour or two hours after meals will be the period of harmful excess of acid.

“In continuous hyperacidity and in fermentative conditions a dose an hour before meals will tend to prepare the stomach for the next meal; or sometimes a dose will be necessary immediately after eating, because of abnormal acid or base having been present at the commencement of the meal. (For the average person one-half hour after meals is recommended).

“A dose at bedtime tends to check the early morning acidity, or a dose on arising cleans the stomach of acid and mucus before breakfast.”

“Besides doing good in respiratory affections, bicarbonate of soda is of inestimable value in the treatment of Alimentary Intoxication, Pyelitis (inflammation of the pelvis of the kidney), Hyper-Acidity of Urine, Uric Acid disturbances, Rheumatism and Burns. An occasional three-day course of Bicarbonate of Soda increases the alkalinity of the blood, assists elimination and increases the resisting power of the body to all infectious diseases.”

Sodium Bicarbonate Use for Colds and Flu

“The proven value of Arm & Hammer Bicarbonate of Soda as a therapeutic agent is further evinced by the following evidence of a prominent physician named Dr. Volney S. Cheney, in a letter to the Church & Dwight Company:

“In 1918 and 1919 while fighting the ‘Flu’ with the U. S. Public Health Service it was brought to my attention that rarely any one who had been thoroughly alkalinized with bicarbonate of soda contracted the disease, and those who did contract it, if alkalinized early, would invariably have mild attacks. I have since that time treated all cases of ‘Cold,’ Influenza and LaGripe by first giving generous doses of Bicarbonate of Soda, and in many, many instances within 36 hours the symptoms would have entirely abated. Further, within my own household, before Woman’s Clubs and Parent-Teachers’ Associations, I have advocated the use of Bicarbonate of Soda as a preventive for “Colds,” with the result that now many reports are coming in stating that those who took “Soda” were not affected, while nearly everyone around them had the “Flu.”

Recommended dosages from the Arm and Hammer Company for colds and influenza back in 1925 were:

  • During the first day take six doses of half teaspoonful of Arm & Hammer Bicarbonate of Soda in glass of cool water, at about two hour intervals.
  • During the second day take four doses of half teaspoonful of Arm and Hammer Bicarbonate of Soda in glass of cool water, at the same intervals.
  • During the third day take two doses of half teaspoonful of Arm and Hammer Bicarbonate of Soda in glass of cool water morning and evening, and thereafter half teaspoonful in gladss of cool water each morning until cold is cured.

In Kidney Disease

Sodium Bicarbonate has been shown to slow the progression of chronic kidney disease and to improve nutritional status in kidney patients.

The doses used in the research were 600-650mg. given 2 or 3 times per day which is equal to 1/8 teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate in water or one capsule of sodium bicarbonate. It is generally used in those with chronic metabolic acidosis. Overt chronic metabolic acidosis in patients with chronic kidney disease develops after a drop of glomerular filtration rate to less than approximately 25 mL/min/1.73 m2. The pathogenic mechanism seems to be a lack of tubular bicarbonate production, which in healthy individuals neutralizes the acid net production. New clinical trials are now going on to further determine who benefits and how much is needed per day.

Sodium Bicarbonate Enemas

Sodium bicarbonate can be used quite strongly to combat Candida and cancer in the colon.[1] I recommend starting with 1/8 cup of bicarbonate in a full quart of water and working up gradually to ½-cup maximum. Seawater is great for this application but seawater alone is better used for long-term therapy and also because the real point to irrigating seawater into the colon is to get it into the blood as if one were doing an IV.

Sodium bicarbonate enemas can be started gradually, perhaps once every other day for candida treatment and up to 3x/day when doing intense sodium bicarbonate treatments for colon cancers. Always check your pH daily and keep within safe parameters of 7.3-7.4 unless cancer is being treated and you are aiming for pH of 8. Use less frequently once pH gets to 8. Length of use will depend on severity of infection and relief of symptoms.

In cancer treatments sodium bicarbonate can be instilled closely to tumors in the uterus, colon and GI tract with enemas. The procedure adopted by Dr. Simoncini called TAT should be utilized.[2] Unfortunately very few doctors have been able to adopt the Simoncini protocol successful.

[1] “Those practitioners who administer colonic therapy properly are offering a useful service to the public. This service can be greatly enhanced with the addition of sound dietary counseling so as to eventually overcome the need for colonic therapy. Without this knowledge, the colonic recipient is merely digging holes and filling them again—a net zero toward building a better health quality.”



Dr. David Brownstein uses 200-300 milligrams of iodine daily, with higher doses for more serious and difficult diseases. In perspective, this seemingly “high” dose is still far lower than what the 11th edition of the 1910-1911 Encyclopedia Britannica cites as the “usual” doses of 300-900 milligrams (300,000-900,000 micrograms!) of iodine daily. This is over 2,000 times more than common recommendations. “At 6 grams daily (which is 6 million mcg/day or 6,000 mg/day!), a much higher dose, iodine has been used to cure syphilis, skin lesions, and chronic lung disease,” says Dr. Gabriel Cousens.

Dr. Michael B. Schachter says, “The treatment dose when a person is iodine insufficient is generally between 12.5 and 50 mg daily. Preliminary research indicates that if a person is iodine insufficient, it takes about three months to become iodine sufficient while ingesting a dosage of 50 mg of iodine and a year to become iodine sufficient while ingesting a dosage of 12.5 mg of iodine daily. However, the patient needs to be monitored closely with awareness of possible side effects and detoxification reactions.”

Iodine is safe and easy to give children in liquid form. When they get sick iodine is one of the first medicinals to go for. Personally, when I use it, I do not bother to count the drops I just squirt a dropper into a large glass of water. People with preexisting thyroid conditions need to be more careful and possibly take bovine hormone with iodine as well as selenium and vitamin E.

When used transdermally iodine can be applied full strength to skin over breast cancer for example. Specific instructions are given for this treatment in my Surviving Cancer Compendium in a section on breast cancer.

Iodine can also be applied topically over skin cancers. It is recommended to use a 7% Lugol’s solution and paint the lesion multiple times per day until a scab forms and then falls off. Once it falls off, continue to apply the iodine till another scab forms and falls off naturally.Do not force removal o the scab.  Once three scabs have fallen off the cancer should be gone. If using a smaller iodine percentage, apply more frequently.


Knowledgeable doctors are able, with nearly 100% regularity, to increase the blood levels of selenium by several fold by giving 1,000-2,000 micrograms of selenium daily and then dropping back to a maintenance dose. In one case, a dosage level of 2,700 mcg/day for two months followed by six weeks of 5,000 mcg/day was required to bring up selenium blood levels.

Dr. Schrauzer, who is internationally respected for his groundbreaking research on aspects of vitamins and essential trace elements, notably selenium, reports that dosages of 2,000-5,000 mcg per day will produce toxicity symptoms only after several months. However, since the early symptoms of selenium toxicity such as nausea, weakness, and discoloration of the fingernails are easily noticed, high doses have not been reported to have caused any fatalities.

The best selenium products are bonded to killed yeast (Megafood) but the one I personally recommend and use is called Tung Oil. Each drop is one milligram, which is five to 20 times more than any other product. After learning about a pharmaceutical company that makes injectable selenium for intensive care wards I wrote a book on Selenium. It is so safe that, like iodine, I don’t count the drops but for cancer patients I recommend 10 to 20 drops a day. Maintenance dosages are five drops a day or every other day as required.

For general health maintenance, the amount recommended per day is one or two drops. For other types of selenium maintenance dosage would be 400 to 600 mcg.


The recommended therapy is three boxes of full strength Glutathione suppositories for a profound effect (45 Glutathione suppositories). The total number of rectal suppositories required depends on your toxicity level, your Glutathione level and your health goals (Parkinson's, viral infection, cancer, old age, etc.). These can be taken every day, but as ones situation improves, one can go down to one every two or three days. For less expensive and lower dosage suppositories, see this link.

L-Glutathione Plus is also available for nebulization from Theranaturals with bicarbonate. Follow label directions.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C mega-dosage is the consumption (or injection) of vitamin C (ascorbate) in doses comparable to the amounts produced by the livers of most other mammals and well beyond the current Dietary Reference Intake. Some practitioners of vitamin C mega dose therapy may consume up to 20 grams per day, depending on their bowel tolerance, under the belief that it will lead to optimal health or healing of various conditions.

The dosage is usually divided and consumed in portions over the day. IVs of 50 or 100 grams per day are advocated by some physicians for therapy of certain conditions, poisonings, and recovery from trauma. People who practice vitamin C mega dosage may consume many vitamin C pills throughout each day or dissolve pure vitamin C crystals in water or juice and drink it throughout the day. Making one’s own liposomal vitamin C is a less expensive option.

Ultimate Protector™ offers unprecedented ORAC (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) values that act as an overwhelming antioxidant blanket that will smother inflammatory free radical fires. It will reduce pain, inflammation and reduce oxidative stress in humans quickly if taken in high enough dosages. When using the Ultimate Protector my recommendation is four to ten capsules per day and two to four caps for children in divided doses.

Medical Marijuana

A 2013 survey in the New England Journal of Medicine found that nearly 8-in-10 doctors approved the use of medical marijuana. Now, a wide-ranging survey in California finds that medical marijuana patients agree: 92% said that medical marijuana alleviated symptoms of their serious medical conditions, including chronic pain, arthritis, migraine, and cancer.

Cannabis-marijuana can be inhaled, juiced, or eaten in its raw form (as a food) in high dosages without fear of dangerous side effects. It does not cause harm but rather is protective of our body’s systems, and it heals. Cannabis does not harm and no one has been known to die from overdoing cannabis. Dosage varies widely depending on how one takes cannabis and on one’s sensitivities, and of course it varies with the strength of the cannabis used and what it is being used for.

For hemp oil patients should start with 3 doses per day about half the size of a grain of dry rice, a dose such as this would equal about one quarter of a drop and after four days at this dosage, they should increase their doses little more every four days until you are at the point where you are ingesting about 1 gram a day, so each dose should equal 1/3 of a gram. People’s sensitivities vary widely with hemp oil and again the size and weight of a person is a big factor. A full course of treatment with hemp oil for a cancer patient is 3 months using 60 grams in total.

Cannabis balms or creams can be applied as needed throughout the day, to painful or inflamed areas.

Vitamin D and the Sun

A 50,000 IU capsule costs as little as 21 cents, ($21 for a bottle of 100 capsules Amazon US ) This mega dose formula may be what a person needs to protect themselves from the ravages of viral infections. It is also what one wants to use if one has cancer, diabetes, MS and just about any other disease one can think of. Normally D3 is sold in 5,000 IU units but this product from Biotech has 50,000 IU units. Vitamin D lowers inflammations of the body, which are what Alzheimer’s, M.S., cancer and Parkinson’s patients are suffering from. 70% of people diagnosed with Parkinson’s are estimated to have low levels of vitamin D.

Taking one 50,000 IU capsule of Vitamin D3 every two weeks will result in 80% of adults bringing their blood levels to above 40 nanograms/ millliliter, an optimal level for good health. A 50,000 IU capsule is equivalent to the amount of vitamin D from sunbathing for 3 days in a sunny climate. You can take more 50,000 IU pills initially to feel the benefits more quickly.

Sea Water

Recommended Dosages

• From birth to one year of age - 10 ml in the feeding bottle every other day

• From 1 to 4 years of age - 10 ml daily away from meals

• Over 4 years of age - 10 to 40 ml daily according to the severity of the case

• Adults - 30 to 60 ml daily according to the severity of the case

• Elderly people - 10 to 20 ml per day, or as required, over several months

Instructions for Use

Seawater is to be taken orally on an empty stomach 20-30 minutes before meals or at least 1½-2 hours after meals. Seawater should be taken pure (hypertonic) or isotonic (diluted in water by 2/3). For children who find the product too salty, it may be taken diluted in some milk or juice.


Amount of water is judged by urine flow. Urine color should be clear when fully hydrated, light yellow is normal, and the frequency of voiding should be regular and without pain or discomfort when enough water is consumed. When feeling anything uncomfortable, water is the first medicine one should reach for and it provides the best carrier for magnesium, bicarbonate and iodine, making it a valuable medicinal. The ultimate water is high in magnesium bicarbonate which one can buy in some rare bottled waters, or add it from a concentrate. Maximum therapeutic dose is 4 oz. of concentrate to each gallon of distilled water, but one can drink that around the clock. I recommend 8 glasses per day of MagBicarb water.


Prolyt formula that contains the proteolytic enzymes bromelain, trypsin (pancreatic enzyme), and chymotrypsin (pancreatic enzyme), and the bioflavonoids turmeric extract (95% curcuminoids), quercetin and oligomeric proanthocyanidins from grape seed extract in a vegetarian capsule.

As a dietary supplement take 1–2 capsules two times daily away from food, or as directed by a health care professional.

For cancer treatments we recommend taking the Prolyt formula between meals so that it gets into the body and doesn’t just work on the digestion of foods. We recommend 12-20 capsules daily in dosages of 4 caps/ serving taken 3-5 times daily. Larger amounts can be taken as needed.

Organic Sulfur

We recommend 10 grams of organic sulfur per day on average, though many people take quite a bit more. For an average person with no specific health issues, a rounded teaspoon (about 5 grams) twice a day is about right, as the excess organic sulfur is cleared from the body in about 12 hours.

Sodium Thiosulfate

Most retailers of sodium thiosulfate do not give recommended dosages for human use in diseases, only for water purification or photography use. Dr. Oleg Yasko in Russia recommends about 1-2 drops twice a week in a cup of tea or water… or if the granular is obtained, only one grain added is recommended. It is potent stuff. If one feels to take more increase dose with caution. It is a known calcium chelator and we are waiting the results of studies to be be more informed of effective doses.

Alpha Lipoic Acid – ALA

There is preliminary evidence that ALA, taken in the amount of 150-200mg daily for one month, improves visual function in people with glaucoma. ALA has been shown to inhibit the replication of the HIV virus in the test tube. Dr. Burt Berkson reports evidence of pancreatic cancers with liver metastases recovering through ALA/Naltrexone treatment.

The amount of ALA used in research to improve diabetic neuropathies is 600-1800 mg per day and 200 mg per day for glaucoma. 200 mg per day is recommended for general antioxidant protection in healthy people. Because of its chelation effect, one should only cautiously exceed recommended dosages. Use only r-ALA and not the s form of ALA as that is a synthetic version and not as effective.

Clay and Intestinal Cleaning

Intestinal Rejuvenation Formula as one of the best I’ve seen. Intestinal Rejuvenation Formula is a superior drawing, cleansing, and detoxifying formula for the bowel. It safely and effectively loosens encrusted deposits, pulls toxins, soothes inflamed tissues, and provides nourishing nutrients for optimal function of the entire digestive (GI) tract. Use as directed.

Living Clay. It is so pure it tastes clean! Edible clay draws its detoxifying ability from the favorable action that calcium bentonite and montmorillonite clay has upon the GI tract through its absorption and adsorption of various toxins, pathogens, metabolic wastes, and heavy metals. It soothes and purifies the gut, balances intestinal bacteria, aids in alkalinization, One heaping teaspoon in a glass of juice or pure water once a day is recommended. Use an hour before eating or taking other supplements.

Spirulina and other Superfood Formulas

I have been promoting spirulina since it first hit the marketplace 35 years ago and through the years have seen what its nutritional power can do. 10 gm. per day for a medical dose, otherwise 3 gm. per day for general health. Can be used in tablet form or as powder mixed in smoothies.
