Garlic - Hot Peppers - Ginger

I am having a recurrence of my 2009 ovarian cancer. Two months ago after a trip to the emergency room because of severe pain in the lower abdomen/bowel, I had a CT scan that showed cancer specks all over the bowel and up on the liver. I was told by the doctors that the reason I was in so much pain was because the bowel had pretty much adhered to itself where the specks appeared and was all but not functioning. The doctors told me my ovarian cancer re-currence is in-operable and that my only hope was to begin 6 rounds chemotherapy. Remembering my 2009 experience with chemo treatments and the lingering side affects, propelled me into looking for alternative methods.

Long story short: About a week before my trip to the ER, I was listening to a talk-radio show, and the conversation that day was “alternative cancer treatments”. I happen to be taking notes and at the very end of that discussion, some man called in and briefly said, he knew people that were having luck with their cancers by following the “Kelley Eidem” method of eating hot peppers and garlic daily. He talked about how garlic is a natural cancer killer, and how cancer cells have a sticky coating around them called "fibrin" that must be dissolved first by using the hot peppers so that the garlic can get in there and “kill” the cancer. It was also mentioned, that people that have a hard time eating hot peppers can substitute with grated ginger.

In my experience, it was a week later and I am in the throws of my illness just home from my emergency room visit and still very sick and managing my symptoms with heavy pain medication every 6 hours. In the fog of my symptoms and medication, I remembered taking those notes and I went to that website and read a short while and thought, “all I have in the house is garlic”. So, I chopped up a couple of cloves and ate them and went to sleep that evening. You can imagine my surprise, when the next morning I awoke and as soon as I opened my eyes, I knew I felt much better. My spirits just soared!!

Next, I went back to that website to read more about this simple recipe to diminish / eliminate cancer (he uses the word “cure”) and got in the car and drove to the grocery / health food stores for the remaining ingredients. Since then, I daily dice one habanero pepper and 2 cloves of garlic with some butter on a piece of bread to make a half sandwich; and just eat it! I also take a tablespoon of emulsified cod liver oil (daily) to help re-stabilize my metabolism.

Being from the mid-west, it was a "tall-order" to even imagine eating something that I knew was that “hot”. All I can say is, at that time I was so sick and in pain and looking for any kind of relief. And yes, my nose runs and I huff and puff for those few minutes a day. But at the same time, I know that the chemical compounds in the garlic and peppers are getting into my bloodstream and are all about the task of killing the cancer cells (where ever) they are in my body. 

As a result, here it is January 2011 and I continue to feel better. It took a little while in the beginning, but the bowel is acting more normally and what's even more astonishing is that I continue to have energy and I look and feel more like I do when I am completely well.

There is a still a lot of pressure from family and my doctors to begin chemo again; and I may do that for a time until my CA-125 numbers come down. Or, if things keep progressing, I may just wait and try to bring my numbers down on my own. All I know is, that it's nice to have one more tool in my toolbox against this hideous disease called “Cancer”.

Hi, this is increadible.  I do trust you that garlic and hot peppers help.  That garlic has many health related benefits has been known for a long time.  I didn't know just how beneficial it can be.  A question for you, would this kind of diet help someone with a different type of cancer, meaning other than ovarian cencer (and by extension stomach since it has spread there).  I am glad that you are feeling better, way to go.  I am hoping that similar diet can help my friend who is battling the metastatic breast cancer.  Do you think it would be worth trying it.

Again, I truly hope you keep feeling better and better, and thanks for the diet tip.

@ Aranka ... Garlic is good in general for all health matters. Some other things that you can add to your diet would be seaweed, tumeric, and mushrooms. These all act as great anti-oxidants. My father had liver cancer, which had spread to the lungs. He is currently eating less fatty meats, mushrooms, garlic, spinach, and taking a daily supplement of Fucoidan which is an herbal extract from Brown Seaweed. Let me know if you have any questions. His diet was improving, but since he added the Fucoidan, he has been energetic and not tired while going through chemo. At first I was skeptical, actually my whole family was, but after adding the Fucoidan into his diet, we are able to see the benefits already. Alpha Fetoprotein (one of the liver cancer markers) levels have gone down since. GOD BLESS and good luck to you, on your journey with cancer... It's a cruddy disease, but if you take care of yourself and stay positive, it makes things a bit easier. I also have a blog which trails our journey with cancer as well. Any questions, let me know...

Hi, I eat my habanero and garlic everyday but I add a teaspoon of honey and that seems to get rid of the heat! Hope this helps
