Results of a small clinical trial suggest that supplementing chemotherapy with high doses of vitamin D may benefit patients with metastatic colorectal cancer by delaying progression of the disease.
While it is a positive step that orthodox cancer researchers are at least now looking at micronutrients for the treatment of cancer, using a single vitamin in combination with chemotherapy is not the answer to controlling this disease. Nor either can such an approach do anything to prevent cancer from occurring in the first place. Chemotherapy is so toxic that, in some hospitals, many cancer patients die within 30 days of starting treatment with it.
Fortunately, in the case of colon cancer, research conducted by scientists at the Dr. Rath Research Institute shows we are on the way to controlling it naturally. Their work has shown that a combination of specific micronutrients working in synergy can effectively target several cancer mechanisms simultaneously. In multiple studies, they have documented that vitamin C, lysine, proline, green tea extract and other micronutrients combined in synergistic proportions can be effective in halting metastasis (the spread of cancer cells), decreasing tumor growth, and eliminating cancer cells without harming healthy cells.
To learn more about Dr. Rath’s approach to the natural prevention and control of cancer, read the groundbreaking book he co-authored with Dr. Aleksandra Niedzwiecki, ‘Victory Over Cancer’.
