Cancer, which surpassed heart disease as the number one killer in America in 2005, is still considered “a mystery” in conventional medicine. In fact, the term “cancer” is just a generic term that in no way describes its cause.

The Italian oncologist Dr. Tullio Simoncini -- author of Cancer is a Fungus -- shares fascinating new information about what he believes is the root of all cancers: fungi, and discusses a radically different path for curing cancer; sometimes in as little as a few days. 

Conventional Cancer Treatments – Ineffective and Dangerous “Cures”

Currently, if you are diagnosed with cancer, especially in the U.S., you are given three options:

* Surgery
* Chemotherapy
* Radiation 

However, as mentioned in this video, finding actual statistics on the effectiveness of these treatments is very difficult. You’d think if something were the best that medicine has to offer, they’d be more than happy to share their level of success.

Most people are given a 50/50 chance of dying from cancer, in general. And conventional treatments are touted as your best shot at surviving. 

But is it true? 

According to Dr. Simoncini’s website, polls and questionnaires show that a full 75 percent of doctors say they’d refuse chemotherapy if they were struck with cancer due to its ineffectiveness and its devastating side effects. 

Many doctors have spoken out about it, yet their voices are still ignored. For example, Dr. Allen Levin, MD, author of The Healing of Cancer, has said, "The majority of the cancer patients in this country die because of chemotherapy, which does not cure breast, colon or lung cancer. This has been documented for over a decade and nevertheless doctors still utilize chemotherapy to fight these tumors." 

Professor Gorge Mathe similarly stated, "If I were to contract cancer, I would never turn to a certain standard for the therapy of this disease. Cancer patients who stay away from these centers have some chance to make it." 

So, how effective is chemotherapy? 
There is at least one study that I know of that addresses this very question. Published in the journal Clinical Oncology in December 2004, the results of this study were astounding, showing that chemotherapy has an average 5-year survival success rate of just over 2 percent for all cancers! In the U.S., chemo was most successful in treating testicular cancer and Hodgkin’s disease, where its success rate fell just below 38 percent and slightly over 40 percent respectively. 

Still well below the 50/50 mark… 

A review of chemo on 5-year survival rates in Australia garnered almost identical results, with a 2.3 percent success rate, compared to the U.S. 2.1 percent rate of success. And yet this is the best that conventional medicine has up its sleeve for treating this widespread killer. 

What Causes Cancer? 
Conventional medicine likes to focus on the impact of genetics as a causative agent in developing cancer, despite the fact that research indicates that genetics is not the main cause of this widespread phenomenon, even though it may play a small role in some people. Unfortunately, little attention is paid to the impact of plain and simple infections. 

Dr. Simoncini’s research has led him to believe that something as simple as a fungus, Candida, is the leading cause of cancer; that cancer itself is in fact a fungus. What we refer to as a tumor, is nothing more than your body’s attempt at protecting itself from that fungus. 

He brings up an analogy between psoriasis – an “incurable” disease of the skin that many treat as a fungus – and tumors, which are also an “incurable” disease of your body. Several studies have linked the presence of Candida with cancer, showing that anywhere between 79 to 97 percent of all cancer patients also have Candida. 

Dr. Simoncini’s explanation for how this phenomenon works – how Candida leads to deadly cancer – is that it’s a consequence of the weakening and exhaustion of your organs, and eventually your entire body, in the following stages: 

Candida roots itself in your deep connective tissue in various organs. As a result, this evokes an organic defensive reaction as the connective tissue of your invaded organ attempts to encyst the fungi colonies through cellular hyper-production, which results in the formation of tumors. Growths continue as the fungi spreads, both in your surrounding tissue, and remotely (aka “metastatis”). It is still always the same Candida attacking different tissues, but due to its highly adaptive qualities it is able to mutate to adapt itself to whatever environment it finds itself in, hence the various types of tumors

Your body becomes progressively more exhausted, which allows the fungi to spread and take over more rapidly. You die from “cancer.” 

If Cancer is a Fungus, Then What is the Cure? 

Visit the excellent site of Dr. Simoncini for more info, how to etc. In the video, Dr. Simoncini shows actual before-and-after footage of both bronchial cancer and colon cancer. Four days after his revolutionary and mind-blowingly simple treatment for bronchial cancer with a sodium bicarbonate and water flush, the tumors are gone… 

Sodium bicarbonate, a.k.a baking soda, is the most potent anti-fungal substance there is. The problem with anti-fungal drugs, however, is that fungi are extremely adaptive, and can adapt to a new environment in three to four days. This renders anti-fungal drugs largely ineffective. The fungi do not adapt to the baking soda, but it is far more difficult to use as it needs to be injected directly into the tumor; swallowing the baking soda would not work at all.

Candida yeast is not “one shared element,” so to speak, but rather “social elements,” or colonies, that are highly communicative.

Because of their unique adaptation skills, sodium bicarbonate must be administered directly into the tumor, and in so doing changing its ph very quickly, from acid to alkaline, which quickly and effectively kills off the yeast before it has time to adapt. For example, Dr. Simoncini’s experience has shown that 99 percent of breast- and bladder cancer can heal in just six days, entirely without the use of surgery, chemo or radiation, using just a local infiltration device (such as a catheter) to deliver the sodium bicarbonate directly to the infected site in your breast tissue or bladder. 

Why the Baking Soda Cancer Cure is Not Available Everywhere 

Unfortunately, Dr. Simoncini is yet another brilliant doctor who has been ousted from the medical community due to his revolutionary simple ideas of how to cure profit-making diseases. So many people refuse to believe that this is true and that it’s happening to good doctors, since “everyone knows” you must be a liability to human life if you’re stripped of your medical license. But the reason why Dr. Simoncini was kicked out is because as an oncologist – a cancer specialist -- he refused to use conventional cancer treatment methods, choosing instead to administer sodium bicarbonate, which is HARMLESS, as opposed to the often lethal use of chemotherapy. 

His lawyers have recently started a rehabilitation court trial at the International Court of Justice in Strassburg to have him reinstated. 

Preventive Measures – Combating Candida 

If the cause of cancer is the Candida fungus, then what is the root cause of the fungi? And how can you tell you might have too much yeast in your body, which might eventually lead to the formation of cancer? A good sign that Candida is on the loose is feeling “run down” and developing a craving for sugars and carbohydrates, as this is the main fuel for the growing amounts of yeast in your intestine. The more sugar and grains you eat, the more the yeast grows out of control. Eventually, this will weaken your immune system, which in turn can allow it to infiltrate various other organs.

This imbalance in intestinal flora, sometimes called dysbiosis, can also lead to other more common, and less lethal, health problems, such as:

Vaginitis - Irritable bowel syndrome - Weight gain
Food allergies - Migraines - Asthma
Depression - Chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia 

There are 79 different toxins released by the metabolism and die-off of Candida. This is why people with yeast overgrowth often feel so lousy; the Candida toxins are regularly entering their bloodstream. Two of these toxins, alcohol and acetaldehyde (the breakdown product of alcohol that causes hangovers), are in such high amounts in people with chronic yeast problems that you may actually end up feeling “drunk.”

Acetaldehyde also reacts with the neurotransmitter dopamine, which is why people with yeast overgrowth often experience mental and emotional disturbances such as anxiety, depression, poor concentration, and feeling spaced-out.

How to get rid of a Yeast Overgrowth
by Béatrice Duplantier-Rhea N.D., M.H.

Filling out and scoring this questionnaire should help you and your physician evaluate the possible role of candida in contributing to your health problems. The highlights of the treatments for yeast overgrowth include:

The Right Diet and Exercise -- Avoid sugars and carbohydrate-rich foods -- will restrict the amount of fuel the yeast in your intestine has available to it.
Exercising will begin to rebalance the levels of neurotransmitters in your brain and improve your mood.
Do not touch fruits! When one is seeking to eliminate yeast, the tiniest amounts of sugar seem to worsen this condition.
See file: Candida Diet

Getting Plenty of Good Bacteria -- You will want to increase your probiotic (good bacteria) intake with a high-quality probiotic supplement. It contains the good bacteria that keep your vagina and gastrointestinal tract healthy and will ultimately replace the Candida.
Highly recommended: Bifidophilus

Avoiding Exposure to Chemicals -- Paints, household cleaners, perfumes and scents may cause allergic reactions, and chemical sensitivities are very common in people with yeast overgrowth.

Normally this fungus lives in healthy balance in mouth, intestines, genital tract, throat, but certain conditions cause fungus to multiply, weakening the immune system. Food or Environmental allergies can develop. Parasites infestation encourages Candida.

1. First clean the colon
Use Tiao He Cleanse (a 10 day program)

2. Then kill Parasites
Use Para-Cleanse - You will need to do it 3 times as follows: 10 day rounds with 5 day intervals between each round.

3. At the same time replenish your intestinal track with "friendly Flora"
Take Bifidophilus - 3 morning AND 3 at night on empty stomach - take at least 4 hours apart from Candida killers (women can and should insert 1 or 2 Bifidophilus in the vagina at bed time)

4. Essential Supplementation

Super Omega 3 EPA or Flax Seed Oil - 2 a day
PDA (for meat eaters) or Proactazyme - a must for Candida

5. Candida Killer
Can-Sol from Pure Herbs - read the whole description first.
