During a one-hour "Barbara Walters Special" interview this past January, he told Ms. Walters that he "kept his mind open to miracles", but unfortunately he closed his mind to any hope of such a miracle coming from outside mainstream medicine, whose track record against pancreatic and other difficult cancers is far from miraculous.

(NaturalNews) Patrick Swayze, the star of movies such as "Dirty Dancing" and "Ghost", died Monday at age 57 after a 20 month battle with pancreatic cancer. Although Mr. Swayze outlasted his original prognosis of only having a few months left to live, he refused to seek any natural or alternative treatments to help boost his immune system and nourish his body in addition to fighting his cancer - instead following the advice of his doctors to "starve out" the cancer.
And I sir am deeply shocked at the misinformation that is constantly spread by mainstream medicine and the world pharma industries.
Are you proud of being in a profession that has failed so miserably against cancer since "The War on Cancer" was declared almost forty years ago and we were promised a cure within just a few years? What we have now, after all these many years and after all the billions that have been spent, is no mainstream cure in sight and a bloated $300-$400 Billion a year industry whose continued existence and profit depends on NOT finding a cure for cancer.
Meanwhile, despite statistical manipulations that try to put a positive spin on the abysmal results of mainstream cancer treatments, more people are coming down with cancer and dying of cancer every year.
Are you aware that you are part of a profession that is among the top three causes of death in the U.S. by the AMA's own admission, and which has such a sordid history of turning healing illness into managing illness for profit? Are you even aware of your profession's history? If not, see my article:
It isn't what is taught in medical school, but it is hard to argue with history and facts.
I am further shocked that mainstream oncology continues to use the tried and failed methods of trying to cut out, burn out or poison out the mere symptoms of cancer without addressing the root causes of cancer and pays precious little attention to prevention or the roles of diet, lifestyle, proper nutrition, removal of toxins from the body and environment, and stress.
Beyond being shocked, I am absolutley appalled at how mainstream medicine has suppressed and persecuted natural alternatives to their injurious unnatural drugs and invasive treatments. To get an idea of just how far your profession and those who control it will go to prevent competition, I suggest you read "Politics in Healing: The suppression and manipulation of American Medicine" by former New York State Assemblyman Daniel Haley. Shameful beyond belief!
Why is it that over 75% of oncologists surveyed said they would not take chemo if they had cancer due to it's low success rates and horrific side effects and yet in over 75% of the instances these same oncologists prescribe chemo for their cancer patients? Could it be because the typical oncologist derives about 75% of their income from the markups they make on the chemo drugs they prescribe?
Is your own livelihood and lifestyle supported in great part by dispensing toxic chemotherapy drugs which are often themselves Class 1 carcinogens? Are you aware that the "gold standard" of chemo, Taxol, can result in "extensive metastasis months or even years later" due to it causing "a massive release of (cancer) cells into circulation", as was reported at the 27th Annual San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium. Do you wonder, or can you explain, why this spread of cancer is not even listed among the side effects of Taxol?
Did you receive a "science-based" education at a university largely funded by pharmaceutical companies which - surprise! surprise! - taught you that the way to treat illness is to prescribe approved medicines made by guess who? And which taught virtually nothing about diet, prevention or natural alternatives?
One doctor friend of mine said that in his entire time in medical school he only experienced one single lecture on diet and nutrition. This same doctor, who became an MD almost 40 years ago, switched to naturopathic treatment about 15 years ago because he saw that he was merely managing symptoms with drugs that led to more illness and more drugs in a never ending cycle. He said that it was a highly profitable system, but he became a doctor in the first place because he wanted to heal people, and mainstream drugs and methods weren't getting the job done.
If you believe that implying that Patrick Swayze might have been better off by using alternative methods "beggars description", then how would you describe the fact that mainstream medicine has a virtually zero percent five year survival rate for pancreatic cancer when there are many people still alive after five years who chose natural and alternative treatments for their pancreatic cancers?
I am further appalled, though not surprised, that a mainstream medical education failed to teach you that, while you may be able to kill or slow down the proliferation of a virus by starving the body, if the body is starved the cancer cells simply consume the body's cells, tissues and organs around them and they will mutate healthy cells and keep on multiplying.
The chemotherapy your profession prescribes 75% of the time exacerbates the problem by not only damaging the immune system but also by indiscriminately killing and injuring healthy cells, causing diseased areas of the body which lead to additional disease and shut-down of various organs. Shut-down of the body (physical death) is the eventual result. If medical school had properly taught you about the importance of nutrition and the role of the immune system, nature's first line of defense against cancer and other illness, then you would know that it takes all the nutrients the body needs, including whole foods, fats and proteins, to produce and maintain a healthy immune system.
Yes, your profession surely did wonders for Swayze by telling him to "starve his body to starve his cancer" and watching him end up dying of wasting disease. Take a good look at what happened to Patrick Swayze when he followed that advice:
Swayze before beginning chemo Swayze after beginning chemo
More chemo And still more
Patrick Swayze near the end - how very sad
Now, compare what happened to Swayze, who appeared to be in good physical condition at age 55 prior to coming down with pancreatic cancer, to this report of an 80 year old man who chose to treat his pancreatic cancer naturally:
My Stepdad is still alive after being diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer two years ago. He has never had any mainstream treatment other than a stent to bypass the tumor. He still has the cancer but has lived a mostly pain free and quality life for the last two years. He is also 80 years old and was playing golf up until about 1 month ago. He is still getting out and about but doesn't golf anymore due to the external stent he now has. He has been taking the Oleander for almost 2 years along with other supplements and I beleive this is the only reason he is still with us,along with his great attidude which is a big part of it too. I am certain he would have been long gone if he had ever started chemo. What a shame that people have so much faith in mainstream medicine. My Stepdad always asks the doctor have you found a cure and they say "NO" and he then says I am not interested. Even his doctor quietly agreed that he made the right decision. All his hospice nurses are amazed when they find out his story although they are always trying to push pain medicine, but he tells them he doesn't need it. Many thanks to Tony, Mark & Luella for giving us precious years with our loving Stepdad!!!
Which outcome would YOU prefer?
I suggest sir that you take a good look at the profession you are in, as did my doctor friend and other courageous and open minded doctors I know, and ask yourself exactly when did God and Nature become quacks and doctors and the drug company scientists become God? Did you enter the medical profession more out of a desire to heal, instead of making money? If so, perhaps you too might become part of the solution instead of continuing to be part of the problem.
One thing history has taught us over and over again is that the science and orthodoxy of today often becomes the quackery of tomorrow. When it comes to mainstream drugs and mainstream cancer treatments I am sure that someday history will look back and consider this the true dark ages of medicine.
Of course, I could be just another tinfoil hat wearer crying "medical conspiracy". Let's see what members of your own profession and other notables have had to say:
"There are more quacks in the orthodox profession than there are outside its ranks." - Dr. J. P. Baldwin
"I am part of a profession that is systematically lying to people." - Dr Mark Donohoe
“Medicine, the only profession that labors incessantly to destroy the reason for its existence.” - James Bryce
"The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease." - Thomas Edison
“I have endeavored to show that there is no real service of humanity in the profession [of medicine] and that it is injurious to mankind.” - Mahatma Gandhi
"Nature is the physician of man.” - Hippocrates, “the father of medicine”
"Instead of wishing to see more doctors made by women joining what there are, I wish to see as few doctors, either male or female, as possible." - Florence Nightingale
“Everyone should know that the ‘war on cancer’ is largely a fraud.” - Two Time Nobel Prize Winner Linus Pauling
"Unless the doctor of today becomes the dietitian of tomorrow, the dietitian of today will become the doctor of tomorrow." Dr. Alexis Carroll (Famous Biological Scientist and head of the Rockefellr Institute)
"Medicine being a compendium of the successive and contradictory mistakes of medical practitioners, when we summon the wisest of them to our aid, the chances are that we may be relying on a scientific truth the error of which will be recognized in a few years' time." - Marcel Proust
"We have not lost faith, but we have transferred it from God to the medical profession" - George Bernard Shaw
"He's the best physician that knows the worthlessness of most medicines. God heals and the Doctor takes the fee." - Benjamin Franklin
"The National Anti-Cancer Program is a bunch of shit" - James Watson, Nobel Laureate for Medicine in 1962 , joint discoverer of the double helix of DNA, and for two years a member of the US Joint Advisory Committee on Cancer
"Chemotherapy is an incredibly lucrative business for doctors, hospitals, and pharmaceutical companies…..The medical establishment wants everyone to follow the same exact protocol. They don’t want to see the chemotherapy industry go under, and that’s the number one obstacle to any progress in oncology." - Dr Warner, M.D.
"Medicine is a great humbug:- doctors are merely quacks when they are not charlatans." Dr. Magendie (The great French physician)
Well, are you satisfied that WE ARE QUACKS? In the eyes of those who are willing to forget the present prestige of medicine, such as it is, with all its dignity, its scientific jargon, its pratings of altruism, its great endowment, its well heralded "achievements," we are most assuredly quacks, professing to do things we cannot do, and yes, taking money under this pretence." - Dr. Paul M. Koonin, D.D.Sc.
"Modern medicine" may well be defined as "the experimental study of what happens when poisonous chemicals are placed into malnourished human bodies." - A. Saul, Contributing Editor, Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine
Now you have a good day sir!
I was the Farah special about her fight with cancer. Is was sad as well as she sought help from the "experts"
and in doing do so was her trust betrayed and thus she died a painful and early death.
Same for Patrick. Remember him in the movie - Ghost. Wow does not seem very long ago.
Anyway good job Tony!
We thank you for your work!!
One or 2 things
1) You are honest and just programmed by the system
2) You are dishonest trying to make a buck
If number 1 - then you came to the right place to LEARN what they failed to teach you
If number 2 - most come here for they have no other choice. They are sick and dieing and with out the funds for mainstream so you waste your time...
There are many testimonies of those who mainstream medicine said we cant help - you already had 3 rounds of chemo and one more will kill you - go home and get your affairs in order. Some how they recover and keep on living.... If you are sincere you should look into this and the popular "quacks" who claimed to cure cancer -
the labeling of quack is similar to label of conspiracy
Create a knee jerk reaction - to think only fools will read such info...
Then there is the fabrication of information to confuse and discredit.... anything for money right?
How do you propose that records be obtained of all the people who have educated themselves and/or self-treated and been successful or not? How do you get altmed practitioners to publish their data, when most are operating outside the approved mainstream arena and would be persecuted and villified if they published such data, as has happened time and again with those who have done so?
Mainstream medicine is a trillion dollar a year plus industry who has unlimited funds to publish their massaged data and their studies, ther results of which are bought and sold to insure favorable reports on behalf of the funders. Science has been bought off and corrupted by the greed of the mainstream medicine industry - greed that is clearly shown in my article.
Mainstream studies and data served us well with Vioxx didn't it?
The precious data you refer to that is used by mainstream doctors has been misused to the point of gross negligence and deception, as I clearly demonstrated in my other article I referred you to.
Stop making excuses and trying to justify your professions failures and misdeeds and start learning the truth! I realize that doing so is a tall order after you have been indoctrinated with mainstream misinformation. I realize that it is all too easy to turn a blind eye towards the truth that is clearly there before you in all the patients you have failed to cure when your livelihood and lifestyle depend on continuing to dispense chemo drugs that provides the majority of your income - but the truth can set you free and save your soul, sir.
Seek it and you will find it.
PS - As I indicated earlier, you have had your opportunity to state your case and then some. Continuing to trot out the same arguments and justifications serve no one here. I will soon be ending this "debate", as it has become a distractio and serves no purpose in helping us learn to heal outside the mainstream box, which is the purpose of this forum and of this website.
Numbers that count? You know the old saying, sir - there are lies, damned lies and statistics. And nowhere has statistics been more manipulated than cancer survival rates. The numbers you posted are abysmal to begin with - indicating a death rate of 33% within a year of diagnoses and a five year survival rate of 48% for all cancers. When you take out the huge number of easily curable cancers, such as skin melanoma and breast cancer (which is itself grossly overstated due to now including precancerous conditions that previously were not counted) and the long term survival for prostate cancer which happens without any treatment to begin with, the one year death rate climbs precipitously as does the 5 year survival rate plummet.
Most of the gains reported to begin with are largely due to earlier detection, which increases survival times so that more people make it to the magic five year survival mark that mainstream medicine labels as a successful cure - never mind those may still have cancer at the five year mark. If you are riddled with cancer on your deathbed and die one day after the five year mark, you are counted as a "cure", which is a gross and negligent lie used to manipulate people into highly profitable mainstream treatments which seldom really cure anyone. To me, a cure means eliminating the cancer entirely and proceeding to live a normal lifespan without it ever returning. I suggest that the same definition should apply to mainstream medicine.
Mainstream medicine likes to trumpet 1 or 2% increases in five year survival rates. Do the math and see how many years it will take 1 or 2%, even if true, to increase survival rates from less than 50% (far less for all but the easiest of cancers) to close to 100%. When you take into account the increased number of people who are getting cancer, you will easily see that the bleak reality is that we face increased numbers of cancers and cancer deaths into the foreseeable future using the tried and failed methods of mainstream oncology.
A hundred years ago, only 1 person in hundreds was expected to come down with cancer. Now, that figure is closer to one of every two people. Similarly, the incidence of cancer has skyrocketed since the "War on Cancer" was declared. Not figures I would be proud of if I were a mainstream cancer professional.
To get a better appreciation for how cancer figures have been manipulated, I suggest you take a look at my article:
Those are MY numbers. And here are some more for you:
Besides the many people at CureZone and elsewhere who follow a natural anti-cancer protocol such as I suggest, over the past seven years hundreds of people in South Africa have used the protocol of Naturopathic PhD Marc Swanepoel, centered around an oleander based supplement and a few other key supplements and lifestyle advice, and thus far well over 90% of them are still alive. Of the relative handful who have not survived, besides a few who had only weeks left and were unable to take the supplements, every single one had prior mainstream radiation and/or chemo and they succumbed to major organ failure as a likely result. The rest are all still alive and most are either cancer free, have cancer tumors shrinking or else have their cancer stabilized. A very large percentage had been given up on by mainstream medicine.
Likewise, I host a Yahoo group which has over 1500 members now and which has been around over 5 years. It too is centered around an extract of oleander but includes much more comprehensive suggestions regarding supplementation, diet, nutrtion, lifestyle, stress management and more. A great many of the members came to the group after mainstream methods were tried and failed, and in many instances after mainstream medicine had given up on them.
In the five plus years I have had the group, I am aware of fewer than a dozen people who have joined the group and tried the protocol, or even part of it, and are not still alive today. And the ones who are not still alive all had prior mainstream surgery, chemo and/or radiation. One person tried the protocol for less than two months and then listened to his oncologist, who told him that oleander and supplements were voodoo that could not possibly work and that his best option was to let the oncologist perform a nerve block so he could live out his final few months in less pain. He proceeded to live for over a year and a half beyond the oncologist's prognosis and his daughter, who is still a member of the group, will tell you that she has no doubt that it was the oleander and protocol which gave him the extra time.
One member of the group is my own 86 year old uncle. About four years ago he was diagnosed with having a small lung cancer tumor and was assured by his oncologist that it had been caught earlier enough that it should be easy to beat with "targeted radiation pellets". Instead his tumor continued to grow and his cancer began to spread to other parts of his body. His oncologist wanted to put him on a strong chemo regimen. Instead he listened to me and, after having his brother-in-law in Houston go to MD Anderson and check out oleander and come back with glowing reports, he opted for oleander and a protocol close to what I suggest. Today he is cancer free and enjoys a daily round of his beloved golf.
As noted in my above referenced article, chemotherapy does not cure cancer and it only increases the survival time by about 2-3% for those who opt for chemo versus those who opt for nothing at all. After the third year, the survival rate for those who do not opt for chemo begins to surpass that of those who did and every year after that the survival rate gap grows larger and larger in favor of those who chose to forego chemo. That is because chemo does not cure cancer. At best it merely eliminates the detectable symptoms of cancer (the tumorous masses), and in the process it weakens the body and immune system so that the way is paved for the return of cancer against a body even less able to fight it.
At the end of the day, sir, what counts is realizing how the human body actually functions and how chemotherapy and radiation are not the answer to actually curing cancer and keeping it at bay. People develop cancer due to undernourished bodies which are exposed to toxins and other cancer causing agents. Included among those agents are , chemotherapy and radiation (want to talk about mammograms?), as well as other mainstream drugs and vaccinations.
Also at the end of the day, what really counts is lives and the way to save those is to first of all prevent cancer in the first place, and, in the event of cancer, actually eliminating the cause of the cancer as well as the symtoms and not contintuing to pursue highly profitable treatments which manage cancer and playing games with numbers - which also amounts to playing games with peoples lives.
That sir, means nourishing the body instead of poisoning it. No one ever developed cancer or any other illness due to a deficiency in radiation, chemotherapy drugs or other lab created drugs not found in nature.
