I have been interested in the apricot seeds and cancer. I have been doing research and found this on a cancer research site from the UK. It states:
"If you do take laetrile by mouth, you should be sure to avoid eating raw almonds, crushed fruit stones or pips, celery, peaches, beansprouts, carrots or high doses of vitamin C. All these can increase the risk of cyanide poisoning if taken with laetrile."
If this is true a lot of us are taking high doses of Vitamin C!
My husband had been diagnosed with a deadly bladder cancer, the most aggressive they know. This was 4 years ago. This cancer was slightly bigger than a baseball. They removed it with surgery without touching any organs. We started on the Whole apricot extract which is much more potent than the kernels. he was taking 1oz per day. That is the equivalent to 50 kernels a day. With no side effects, he went into remission for a year and a half. He stopped taking the extract and the cancer returned a month later.
We found the kernels and the amount necessary (7 per day) he was eating 30 per day two at a time every hour or so. The surgeon was astonished....the tumors(4) all shrank by 2/3 in 3 weeks. He has been on them and is still 100% healthy, with only a little insomnia. The surgeon said she has never seen him more healthy.
You be the judge....The most aggressive cancer, no traditional treatment, no other special suppliments, only juicing some vegies and doing more natural ingredients in our cooking......just one thing...kernels. Seems to me, it works very well. Completely well.
Excess C will give you diarrhea and depleat your system of calcium, potassium and sodium and Thiamine. Be carefull....to much of a good thing is bad!
Hi Canadian Girl,
Could you possibly post the link to the site. I would like to read the artical in it's intireity. I am just starting the apricot seed regimnie and also other seeds. I would like to be weel informed before I get to far.
That info was obviously written by a medical professional. Having seen many die from conventional methods as well as many survive from overall heathful treatment, alkaline diets, processed food elimination, vegan diet etc, mega vit. c doses as well as chelation and detox. These natural remedies are the bodies way of cleansing itself. While I'm definitely noe advocating anyone take my words as "gospel" I DO suggest they look seriously into healthful remedies as an alternative. Of course ALL cases are different, so do the research with your case in mind.
Oh, I can't agree with you more but at the same time we don't have a lot of research to go on when it comes to Apricot Seeds. Someone had previously posted that they took 100 apricot seeds a day but I find this highly unlikely since everything I read (from alternative sites) write that you should not take too many of them a day or it could cause death or poisening. In this regard I would be more cautious. We have all the facts about Vitamin C but not too many about these seeds.
Makes me wonder if the person that wrote that post about eating the 100 seeds a day was working for the seed company, or maybe it was there's...at any rate they can and have helped many. There's a book that was published in the 80's, "curing cancer with herbs" It was written by a man that had lung cancer and traveled extensively to find a cure. He stumbled on the apricot seeds along with the Essiac Tea . He's cured and doing fine today...that's all I know.
