Modified citrus pectin cancer treatment is used to prevent cancer cells from clumping into new tumors and to limit the growth of existing tumors.
One way cancer spreads is through the formation of new tumors, as cancer cells travel throughout the body and meet up with each other to form new tumors. If you can keep the cancer cells from clumping, then metastases is limited or prevented. Modified citrus pectin cancer therapy may even limit the growth of the original tumor.
Although medical scientists don't know exactly how this natural cancer remedy does all this, a number of studies show that it does work. For example, three groups of rats with prostate cancer were studied. One group got 0.1 percent MCP in their drinking water. The second group got 1.0 percent MCP. The third group, the control group, got nothing.
Of the control group, after 30 days of this holistic cancer treatment, 15 of 16 rats had metastases in their lungs. Of the other two groups, about half had metastases, BUT, in the group with the higher dose of MCP, the rats averaged only one metastatic tumor versus nine metastatic tumors in the control group.

Another study using modified citrus pectin cancer treatment involved men with prostate cancer for whom conventional treatments had failed, so these men had ongoing cancer. The study measured increasing PSA numbers. PSA, or prostate specific antigen, is a test which, in this case, measures the rate of increase in the cancer. The study measured how long it took for PSA levels to double. In four of the seven men, the use of MCP as a natural cancer therapy saw PSA doubling time to increase over 30 percent, and all patients were still alive at the end of five years, despite the expectation that at least two would have died by then.
In a similar study using MCP as an alternative cancer treatment, PSA doubling time increased by more than 100 percent in half the patients, with increases up to 941 percent after a year of treatment.
In a study on MCP for breast cancer, using rats, those on MCP had significantly less tumor growth, angiogenesis, and metastases.
Testing MCP for colon cancer in rats, tumor size decreased from 38 to 70 percent, depending on the dose.
Testing of modified citrus pectin cancer treatment was done on humans, but only on otherwise hopeless cases who have tried everything else. Alternative cancer treatments are not popular with the medical establishment, including the drug companies and the FDA. Doctors using alternative cancer treatments on early-stage cancer cases have been sued, disciplined, lost their licenses.
A study at Albert-Ludwigs University in Freiburg, Germany involved 49 patients from age 36 to 82, most of whom had lived with cancer for over three years. All had advanced tumors of the colon, prostate, breast, kidney, lung, cervix/uterus, liver, pharynx, pancreas, stomach, and more. Ninety percent had metastases.
Considering the advanced states of cancer involved, no one expected modified citrus pectin cancer treatment to produce a cure, and there was none. Twenty percent of patients, however, experienced an improvement in their quality of life. Twelve of 49 stabilized during the first eight weeks of treatment, 10 remained stabilized over 16 weeks, and six stabilized for more than 24 weeks while taking MCP, five grams, three times a day. One patient with advanced prostate cancer saw his PSA level cut in half, in addition to decreased pain and better quality of life.
No one knows yet what effect MCP would have on patients other than hopeless cases, but studies like this one provide justification for enlightened physicians to try MCP in the earlier stages of cancer.
My source, Dr. David Williams, is a medical researcher who writes a newsletter called Alternatives. He has two recommendations:
Since biopsies can spread cancer, take MCP to prevent that, five grams three times a day for a total of 15 grams, a week before the biopsy and continuing for two to four weeks afterward.
Here's an article from the U.S. National Institutes of Health about modified citrus pectin cancer treatment, titled "Modified citrus pectin anti-metastatic properties: one bullet, multiple targets.
Dr. Williams recommends the product used in the human study, which is called PectaSol-C. You can search for it online or click the image link at left. Dr. Williams also believes it should be “an integral part of any therapeutic program to treat or even prevent cancer.”
MCP is nontoxic and safe, although there are no studies on MCP use by pregnant or lactating mothers.

Note: At one time, I took Pectasol for cancer prevention, but it upset my stomach, so I stopped.

A number of studies have linked prayer to healing, and although the results have been inconclusive, what could it hurt to talk to the omnipotent creator of the universe? A prayer for healing might go something like this:
"Dear Lord, please hear me now as I pray for your help with (name your problem). I pray you’ll cleanse my body and heal me completely. In Jesus’ name I pray; Amen."
