Dr. Jim discovered this treatment accidentally somewhere in the middle of the last century when he was treating a family plagued by breast cancer. There were five sisters in the family and four of them had died of breast cancer. He asked the remaining sister if there was anything different in her diet and she told him that she was partial to sipping maple syrup and baking soda. Since then, reported by a newspaper in Ashville, North Carolina, Dr. Jim dispensed this remedy to over 200 people diagnosed with terminal cancer and amazingly he claims of that number 185 lived at least 15 more years and nearly half enjoyed a complete remission of their disease. When combined with other safe and effective treatments like transdermal magnesium therapy, iodine, vitamin C, probiotics and other items like plenty of good sun exposure, pure water and clay treatments we should expect even higher remission rates.

Cancer Fungus: The Link Between The Microbe And Cancer

The cancer fungus link is well-documented.  Fungus is a microbe, and many scientists believe viruses, fungus and bacteria are all different stages of the microbe life cycle. The microbe has long been associated with and identified as a possible cause for cancer.

A large and significant number of independent cancer researchers, scientists, microbiologists and prominent medical practitioners over the past 100 years [as shown below] have found over-whelming evidence supporting this cancer fungus link or link between cancer and the microbe. They have also discovered and observed that this microbe is pleomorphic (form-changing), meaning it changes back and forth from (harmless) spore form to (harmful) virus form, bacterial form and yeast-like fungus form.  This microbe, they have found, is always present in cancer/tumor cells.


On December 3, 1890 William Russell, a pathologist in the School of Medicine at the Royal Infirmary in Edinburgh, gave an address to the Pathological Society of London in which he outlined his histopathologic findings of “a characteristic organism of cancer” that he observed microscopically in fuchsine-stained tissue sections from all forms of cancer that he examined, as well as in certain cases of tuberculosis, syphilis and skin infection.

The parasite was seen within the tissue cells (intracellular) and outside the cells (extracellular). The size of Russell’s parasite ranged from barely visible, up to “half again as large as a red blood corpuscle.” The largest round forms were easily seen microscopically. The large size of some of these bodies suggested a fungal or yeast-like parasite. Russell provisionally classified the parasite as a possible “blastomycete” (a type of fungus); and called the forms “fuchsine bodies” because of their bluish-red staining qualities.


After three years’ work at the New York State Pathological Laboratory of the University of Buffalo, Harvey Gaylord confirmed Russell’s research in a 36-page report titled “The protozoon of cancer”, published in May, 1901, in the American Journal of the Medical Sciences. Gaylord found the small forms and the large sacs characteristic of Russell bodies in every cancer he examined. Some large spherical bodies were four times the diameter of a leukocyte (white blood cell). Red blood cells measure about 7 micron in diameter and leukocytes are 2 to 3 times larger than red blood cells.  Thus, some of the bodies that Gaylord observed attained the amazing size of around 50 micron in diameter. In addition, he found evidence of internal segmentation within the larger bodies “after the manner recognized in malarial parasites.”  The tiniest forms appeared the size of ordinary staphylococci.


In the 1920s James Young, an obstetrician from Scotland, repeatedly grew pleomorphic (having many forms) bacteria from various cancers. The microbes had a “specific life cycle” and “spore stages” comprised of exceedingly tiny and barely visible spores. In the laboratory these tiny spores transformed into larger coccoid (round) forms, rod-forms and yeast-like forms (similar in size to Russell bodies).  Young found his microbe in 16 cases of breast cancer, and in two mice with breast cancer. He identified “spore forms” and clumped “spore balls” in microscopic sections prepared from the mouse tumours.


In 1925 Northwest Medicine published two papers by Michael Scott, a Montana surgeon who learned about the cancer microbe in TJ Glover’s lab in 1921. Scott’s microbe was similar to Young’s. The parasite had a life cycle composed of three stages: a coccus, a rod, and a “spore sac” stage. Scott believed cancer was an infection like tuberculosis and attempted a vaccine treatment, but his treatment methods were quickly suppressed by the medical establishment.

In 1925, John Nuzum, a pathologist and physician at the University of Illinois College of Medicine, reported a pleomorphic coccus he repeatedly isolated from breast cancer. The tiniest forms were virus-like and passed through a filter designed to hold back bacteria. Nuzum grew his “micrococcus” from 38 of 41 early breast cancers, and from the cancerous lymph nodes and metastatic tumours resulting from spread of the cancer to other parts of the body.  During his 6 years of intensive bacteriological study, he learned the microbe could pass through a filter designed to hold back bacteria, indicating that some forms of the microbe were as small as the size of some viruses. With special stains he detected these small round coccoid forms within the breast cancer tumour cells. Although Nuzum couldn’t produce cancer tumours in mice, he was able to induce breast cancer tumours in 2 of 5 dogs injected with the microbe.


Royal Raymond Rife studied medicine at the prestigious John Hopkins University, and began his career as a research pathologist and medical researcher. Over his lifetime, Rife was to receive fourteen major scientific awards and honours and an honorary doctorate from the University of Heidelberg for his scientific discoveries.

Royal R. Rife cultured tissue from a breast cancer sample, in Kendall medium, and isolated a micro-organism. He followed this experiment with a series of other studies in which he cultured an organism in Kendall media, from tissue taken from a human breast cancer.  He then injected this microorganism into 412 healthy rats, and found that without fail they all developed breast cancer.  Finally, he was then able to isolate the original microorganism from the tumours which grew in the rats. In the process Rife became probably the first person ever to fulfil Koch’s postulants, for cancer causing microbes.  Koch’s Postulants are a set of rules to prove the causation of disease by microorganisms.  They state that to prove such causality the microorganism must first be isolated and cultured.  It must then be shown to have infected a health animal, and finally the same organism must be recoverable from the now infected animal.

The cancer virus which Rife named Cryptocides Primordiales or the BX virus, was a minute 1/5 micron in length and 1/20 micron in width.  It was highly motile, aerobic (requiring free oxygen for its survival) and highly pathogenic. Rife discovered that while exposing the virus to a temperature of 42C for 24 hours would kill the virus, it remained unaffected by exposure to either X-ray, UV or Infra-red waves.

While the discovery of a cancer virus was in itself an incredible feat of scientific endeavour, Rife was to make yet more discoveries destined to rock the scientific status quo. The BX virus was shown to be a polymorphic virus, able to change its states according to the culture in which it was grown.  When a BX virus was cultivated in a different media, it was seen to change into a BY virus.  When the media was changed yet again it developed into a monococcoid in the monocytes of the blood, and with a further change of media it morphed once again, this time into crytomyces pleomorphia fungi. At any stage along this journey of polymorphism, the original BX virus could be grown again by adding any one of these forms to the original media.


Another Pleomorphist, Canadian researcher of Dr Gruner was watching Rife’s work with interest.  Gruner was using asparagus agar to grow fungus from cancer blood.  Rife was growing a virus from cancer tissue using Kendall media.  In the 1930’s both Gruner and Rife collaborated and went on to discover that when a sample of Gruner’s fungus was cultured on K media the BX virus emerged. By changing the media they could turn a fungus originally grown out of cancer blood into the BX organism, itself grown out of cancer tissue. They repeated this experiment hundreds of times with exactly replicable results each time.


Caste Livingston, independently discovered the cancer microbe in the late 1940s. Aided by microbiologist Alexander-Jackson, who supplied the bacteriologic expertise, the two women found a special stain (the acid-fast stain) that allowed the microbe to be recognised in culture and within the cancer tumour. Like the researchers back in the 1920s, they confirmed the microbe was filterable; and electron microscopic photos provided further proof that the filterable forms were indeed viral-size.  Livingston has written three books on the cancer microbe: Cancer: A New Breakthrough (1972), The Microbiology of Cancer (1977), and The Conquest of Cancer (1984).


In the 1950s Irene Diller of the Institute for Cancer Research at Fox Chase, Philadelphia, discovered fungus-like microbes in cancer cells. Joining forces with the Livingston team, Diller worked with specially bred mice with a proven cancer incidence. By injecting them with microbes cultured from breast cancer and other tumours, she was able to more than double the cancer incidence of the mice.  She injected healthy animals with cancer bacteria. When cancer tumours developed she successfully cultured the microbe from the tumours – thus proving that these bacteria were implicated in the production of cancer. Utilising Livingston’s methods, Diller also grew the microbe from the blood of cancer patients.

1950 – Present

In the 1950, Professor Gaston Naessens invented a high-powered light microscope, capable of viewing the tiniest forms of life within blood.
With this microscope, Naessens discovered in the blood of animals and humans – as well as in the saps of plants – a subcellular microscopic life form that reproduces, which he christened a somatid (tiny body). The somatid, he found, could be cultured (grown) outside the bodies of its hosts (in vitro, “under glass,”).   Naessens also observed that this somatid life form was pleomorphic (form-changing).  He observed this somatid life form was limited to 3 stages in a healthy organism – somatid, spore, and double spore – and that these 3 stages where crucial to the organisms survival.

What was more amazing, was that Professor Naessens observed that this somatid life form became pathogenic (harmful) when the immune system of the organism was compromised or weakened.  He observed these somatid life forms then entered a further 13 stages of development, changing from bacterial into yeast-like fungus forms. (A total of 16 stages). 
Naessens studied the blood of various degenerative diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, lupus, AIDS, and cancer, and consistently found the 16 stages of the somatid life cycle present in all of these diseases.

1960 – 1990

In the early 1960s Florence Seibert became so impressed with Irene Diller’s research that she quit retirement to help prove that bacteria cause cancer. Back in the 1920s Seibert devised a method to make intravenous transfusions safe by eliminating contaminating ubiquitous bacteria. Later, as one of the foremost authorities investigating the chemistry and immunology of the acid-fast bacteria that cause tuberculosis, she perfected the skin test for tuberculosis that has been used worldwide ever since. In 1938, she was awarded the famed Trudeau Medal, the highest prize given to tuberculosis research.
Experiments conducted by Seibert and her research team showed these acid-fast and TB-like cancer microbes were not laboratory contaminants because they were able to isolate bacteria from every piece of tumour (and every acute leukemic blood) they studied.


Cosmic Awareness – the force that expressed itself through Jesus of Nazareth, the Buddha, Krishna, Mohammed, Edgar Cayce, and others who served as “channels” for the ‘Heavenly Father’ reveals that cancer is indeed a fungus.  In this revelation, it is revealed that there are seven different types of fungus which are diagnosed as cancer.  In this revelation, it is also revealed that Apple Cider Vinegar together with High Dose Vitamin C or equivalent amounts of lemon juice can effectively rid this cancer fungus from the body.

1983 – Present

Dr Tullio Simoncini is an Italian doctor specialising in oncology, diabetology and in metabolic disorders.  He has treated and cured many cancer patients with sodium bicarbonate (the strongest anti-fungal chemical known to man), commonly via catheter, and has observed tumors consistently disappear within weeks.  His book, “Cancer is a Fungus – The Revolution in the Therapy of Tumours” is widely available.  It is Dr Simoncini’s unequivocal belief that cancer and tumors are the result of fungal growth in the body, supporting the cancer fungus link. [Note: Injecting baking soda into the body is a method used by Dr Simoncini and may cause side effects].

World Health Authorities Link the Microbe to Cancer

“The over representation of cancer in a region where there is a high incidence of parasitic disease, and the unique characteristics of bilharzial bladder cancer, indicate the possibility that this parasite plays a role in the etiology of cancer.  The presence of chronic bacterial cystitis, complicated by urethral strictures, calculi, diverticulae and paralytic stasis, has been known to induce epithelial changes in the bladder mucosa, which may progress to invasive cancer.”
  [CA: A Cancer Journal for Clinicians, the American Cancer Society – Parasites in the Etiology of Cancer: Bilharziasis [parasite] and Bladder Cancer, 1977, Dr. Elsebai, Professor of Surgery, Cancer Institute, Cairo University, Egypt.

2. “Schistosomiasis (also known as bilharziasis), an infection with a parasitic worm called Schistosoma hematobium that can get into the bladder, is also a risk factor for bladder cancer. Although this parasite is found mostly in Northern Africa, it does cause rare cases of bladder cancer in the United States among people who had been infected by the worm before moving to this country.”  [American Cancer Society]

3. According to the US National Cancer Institute, “Being infected with parasites increases the risk of bladder cancer.” It is possible that the immune system in a highly parasitised human being is compromised. In attempting to fight off the large amounts of [foreign] parasites, cancer cells that exist in every human being are left alone to multiply – the immune system simply not having enough resources to go around.

4. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that over 1.5 million of the total of 10 million new cancer cases a year could be avoided by preventing the infection associated with them. WHO states that “Viruses, bacteria and parasites emerge as the “secret agents” causing millions of cases of cancer” each year.

5. Many cancers are associated with infections (for example, cervical cancer is linked to the human papilloma virus), but there is no stronger link between a human malignancy and a parasitic infection than that between cancer of the bile ducts and a liver fluke called Opisthorchis viverrini. Scientists at the Queensland Institute of Medical Research (QIMR) in Brisbane are part of an international study into the link between cancer and a parasite found in South-East Asia. The institute’s Dr Alex Loukas says bile duct cancer is prevalent in Thailand and Laos, where people eat raw fish. He says the results could be applied to other cancers caused by parasites. “We know from collaborations with our colleagues in Thailand that the cancer is highly likely to be caused by proteins that this worm secretes into the bile ducts as part of its feeding process”.

6. [American Cancer Society]  Cervix cancer is caused by a virus called HPV.  HPV is short for human papilloma (pap-ah-LO-mah) virus. This virus can cause changes in the cervix. HPV is NOT the same as HIV.  HPV is not a new virus, but we are learning more about this virus. Almost everyone who has ever had sex has had HPV at some time in his or her life.  HPV is spread through sex and it can cause an infection in the cervix. The infection usually doesn’t last very long because your body is able to fight the infection. If the HPV doesn’t go away, the virus may cause cervix cells to change and become precancer cells.

7. The Institute for Genomic Research and the International Livestock Research Institute have joined forces to decode the DNA of one of Africa’s most destructive cattle parasites. East Coast Fever is caused by a protozoan parasite carried by ticks. The parasite is known to scientists as Theileria parva. Once injected into the cow’s bloodstream it invades the animal’s white blood cells, causing them to divide uncontrollably, like cancer cells. The multiplying cells clog the cow’s organs, killing the animal within 2 to 4 weeis. Knowledge of the genes that the parasite uses to start this lethal cell division may shed light on the mechanisms that cause human tumours to grow. Research on the East Coast Fever parasite has already led to the identification of a previously unknown mechanism that causes leukemia in mice.

8. A new study links parasites with immunosuppression. Stool specimens taken from 38 children with malignancy and from 92 healthy children were investigated for intestinal parasites. The 38 children with malignancy had lymphoma or leukemia and were considered immunosuppressed. Several different parasites were found in 16 of the 38 patients with immune deficiency (47.3%) , compared to only 16 of the 92 healthy children (17.3%). The incidence of parasites in patients with malignancy who were immunosuppressed was significantly higher than in the healthy control group.

Ridding the Body of Fungus to Overcome Cancer

Whatever alternative cancer treatment plan you eventually decide on, it is important to have a protocol in this treatment plan that kills the cancer fungus inside of you.

Did you know that most alternative cancer treatments either directly or indirectly kill the yeast-like fungus that causes cancer?  Some of these include the Gerson Therapy Diet, the Bob Peck protocol, the Overnight Cure for Cancer, 714X, GarlicSodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda), MMS (Miracle Mineral Supplement), Apple Cider Vinegar and Lemon Juice, the Hulda Clark protocol, and herbal remedies that purify the blood such as Essiac tea to name just a few.  This is what all of these cancer treatments have in common – they kill fungus!

Some of these treatment options are more difficult than others, so it is important to find one or more that suits you – because they all effectively do the same thing: kill the cancer fungus.
