How An 85 Year Old Chemist Cured His Cancer Three Times In His Life Without Chemotherapy. Special Interview Episode Part 1/2 1/26/2018
This amazing 85 year old chemist named Nick actually CURED himself of Cancer 3 Times in his life without Chemo!
His story and insight is amazing and it's a must-hear interview. This guy is the sharpest 85 year old I've ever met in my life. He has several books on Amazon, he's a health coach, and he just moved across the country to live with a new girlfriend.
Upon first hearing his story three years ago, I was truly amazed and it inspired me to further my own research into alternative treatments for cancer.
According to Nick and many Doctors of alternative medicine, it doesn't matter whether it's lung cancer, bone cancer, throat cancer, skin cancer, throat cancer, cervical cancer etc: these preventative and healing techniques can work for all types.
In part 1 of this episode, we discuss many topics including Nick's first round with cancer, toxins in our food that cause cancer, sugar, natural sugar alternatives, inflammation, alkaline foods, body ph, soda, sugar addiction. canola oil, and how many people out there don't take the time to research this for themselves.
Nick's lasting point in part 1 of this interview was that "You must be your own Janitor and clean up the mess you made."
This is a must hear interview for anyone struggling with cancer or anyone with loved ones struggling with cancer.
For more information on alternative cancer treatments, the best two sources I have found is http://www.thetruthaboutcancer.com and http://www.chrisbeatcancer.com.

Interviewer: (Matt Michael)
Interviewer: All right so thank you for joining me on the show, Nick.
Nick: I'm very happy to be here.
Interviewer: I was looking forward to interviewing you for I don't know -- how's long has it's been now like three years I think, two, three years?
Nick: That's about that long.
Nick: That's about that long.
Interviewer: So you did an awesome presentation at Old Orchard Beach Adult Ed. I was very intrigued by on how you're able to cure your own cancer naturally three times, right?
Nick: That's correct, three times. My first cancer was 1982 and at that time the doctor said to me, "Sit", so I sat and he said, "Look at me and listen, you have cancer in your bladder. Do you smoke? I said, "Oh yes, I smoke two packs a day and I inhale six cigars." He said, "Well, stop right now." So I did, I stopped right on the spot and he said, "Even if you quit now in about five years you'll probably get it again and might have to go through this again but in the meantime you need to have a re-exam every six months and then after two years every-- I mean, sorry, every quarter for two years and then at the end of two years you would do every half year but in five years the probability is very high that you will have this again. If you can stop smoking and straighten up your life by not eating things which you shouldn't eat -- which he did not go into any detail, it's like I should intuitively know the hell with french fries, I can't eat those anymore -- but in any event, I did get it five years later. I had another cystoscope or cystoscopic removal and then I was good. That was 1986 and I've been fine ever since and I was fat and sassy. I was much younger that I am now and I figured, "Yes, okay." So I quit smoking and now I'm home free. So I didn't really, I was overweight. I had a few aches and pains but I was also immortal at that time as most young people are and you don't realize that what you're doing now by default is creating a problem for yourself that will manifest later in some form and then you would sink in the idea that, "I did myself that. I ate myself into a hole and now you're going to eat yourself out of the hole" and basically that was the whole philosophy.
Interviewer: So what did you do the first time around after you got cancer?
Nick: Oh the first time around I prayed a lot and seriously I did and looked at my diet and figured out. I read so many books on cancer male health, men's health and what I did was I took everything that I could think of that would help stop any cancer growth. The big deal was smoking and one of the other things that the doctor told me is that one of the largest forms of cancer in men is bladder cancer and the cause is smoking. Well, how does that work? Well, happens is, the nicotine and the tars and all that that's in the smoke tends to reside in your bladder and it's carcinogenic. So while I was in the hospital after the first cystoscope I was in the room with a guy who was my age and he was terminal and he was on morphine and he had the same problem, bladder cancer. I did -- I'm a chemist - so I did calculations to figure out the percentage of tar that's in one cigarette and then multiply that by two packs a day and six cigars and it turns out that in the 33 years that I was smoking I calculated that I have inside of me 14 pounds of tar the kind of crap that builds up on an ashtray when you just let a cigarette burn and right where it meets the glass or whatever the ashtray is made of you get this black stuff, well, that's what caused my problem. You get religion real fast. It's like if your plane's going down you pray a lot but you can't stop. You have to be honest with yourself. I did quit smoking right on the spot. I took, I had a green drink every morning. I took materials that were known to help cure cancer or help get rid of it or stop it, AHCC, which is Activated Hexose Correlated Compound.
Interviewer: So this is still 1983, you said?
Nick: Yes and I was very religious about paying attention to things that I need to do, things that I need to take, things that I need to stop doing. I still drank sodas and I ate french fries and as a matter of fact, the whole subject of oils is a whole -- I wrote a paper one time which I'll be glad to share -- I called, "Do You Need an Oil Change?" People don't realize that one of the major causes of obesity in this country is the oil and fats that we consumed. There are fats but Udo Erasmus wrote a book, "Some Fats are Healthy and Some are Not" and what you have to do as part of your day to day regimen is know all about fats. So I learned all about fats and I learned that the most important thing that you need to know about fats is the relationship in your diet between omega-3 fat and omega-6 fat. Omega-3 fat is the most healthy fat that you can consume and the ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 ideally should be one to one but in the standard American diet, it's more like 1 to 20 or 1 to 40 and your body really doesn't know what to do with all that omega-6 and so you wear it, you become obese and it's really tough to get rid of that kind of fat. I remember in one of the talks that I gave at Old Orchard Beach in the Adult Ed, one of the gentlemen in the one of the classes when I was talking about fat, he took issue with the fact that I mentioned that any vegetable oil is high in omega-6 and you shouldn't use it. Well, he had just bought, he went to Sam's Club and he bought a five-gallon jug of Canola oil because it's healthy and it contains omega-3. I said "Well, you're kidding yourself. One of the most unhealthy fats you can consume is canola oil." "Well, how come is that?" Well, it's pretty straightforward. Canola, there is no such thing as a Canola plant. It's a weed. It's rapeseed is the name of the plant. In Canada, they figured out this stuff, this weed, this rapeseed grows everywhere and same in China and they started messing with it in the lab and they said, "Well, gee whiz, it contains omega-6 and omega-3 but it has a lot of omega-3 so maybe we could like sell the stuff." So they made it, put the stuff together and went to EPA and they tried to get an approval for this oil and EPA said, "Well, yes it does contain omega-3 but we can't approve this because this rapeseed oil contains a material called erucic acid and erucic acid is a carcinogen and this we can't, until you figure out a way to get rid of the erucic acid there's no way we can approve this product, this rapeseed oil." So they went back to the lab and they genetically modified the seed and got the erucic acid down to a little under 1%. So they went back to EPA and EPA said, "Now you're talking. Now you got it wired. Yes we can approve because you're down to less than 1% and that's kind of negligible." Well, it still carcinogenic. It's still erucic acid and so what's the limit? I mean, where do you quit? But it's also high in omega-6, it's just not a good thing to use so the paper that I wrote was, "Do You Need an Oil Change?" At that time, it was like 8 years ago, specified which fats to use and which fats not to use. I covered all that and we've diverged, we've gone off the track here in terms of cancer but the whole point is that the rate, your individual ratio between omega-3 and omega-6 fat in your diet is very important if you want to not to have cancer so you got to pay attention.
Interviewer: Seems like it's important for just about everything because that was part of the lecture I gave a couple of weeks ago on the healing depression and anxiety was the ratio between omega-3 and omega-6 is in really increasing the omega-3 is such a large part of that.
Interviewer: Fore sure so we'll probably get to that, it all goes back to it like very specific parts of nutrition in the gut health and all that.
Nick: Right, exactly. Then people don't realize that all these little things about omega-3 omega-6, acrylamide, all these things that you consumed, that could hurt you. You have to learn to consider the food that's on your plate and think about, "Is this going to do something for me or is this going to do something to me? Or is this nutrition or this entertainment? Or as Dr. Hyman said, "There is no such thing as junk food. There is food and there is junk." If you eat a lot of junk then you're making your digestive system into a junkyard and you'll pay for it eventually it some form and that's the truth.
Interviewer: What I find it crazy is a lot of people that may not be ready for a change. A lot, they'll kind of laugh it off like you talk about eating a lot of sugar and there are people that will just like laugh about it and think it's a joke. It's like what would you say to those kind of people that are kind of like making this kind of joke and like joking about eating bad when down the road they can end up with a really bad situation?
Nick: Well, it's kind of like a credit card, buy now pay later because basically that's what you're doing. People don't understand that what sugar does in your diet. I was one of those people who thought -- as I said earlier - I was immortal. I mean you don't think about dying and you don't think about what sugar does. But one of the things I did when I realized I had cancer one of the things I learned was that, that Dr, Otto Warburg 1925 laid it all out what causes cancer, and it's sugar. Then in 1959, Dr. Johanna Budwig wrote a book on "How to Cure Yourself of Cancer?" Well, I did all these things. I cut the sugar. I read Dr. Budwig's book and I followed her protocol of cottage cheese with flax seed and I learned all about flax seed, what's good about it, what's bad about, how to handle it, how you consume it and I was, again, very careful. I still do that. Flax seed, I take three tablespoons of flax seed. I grind them in a coffee grinder -- which is dedicated to flax in my case -- and mix it with like four big tablespoons of cottage cheese and mix it up and I do that everyday. It's like medicine. It's like a [Inaudible] as if food is medicine. Your medicine is your food and it's very helpful. It actually taste pretty good and one of the things you'll learn about flax seed is if you go to a health food store and you buy ground flax seed you're wasting your money or if you buy flax seed oil you have to be very careful about expiration dates because one of the things that's true about flax is that once you grind it and expose it to oxygen it oxidizes and makes a compound that are not really good for you. So what I do is I fresh grind it every morning and mix it with the cottage cheese and I consume it like right now and it's very healthful. It's healthy, it's healthful and it's good for you.
Interviewer: So what's your take on dairy as far as being inflammatory or contributing to cancer and other kinds of things? I mean I've been advised by my naturopath to stay away from it in order gut health so what's your take on dairy?
Nick: My take is exactly what your naturopath said, avoid it.
Nick: Avoid it. Dairy is good for a calf. Dairy is not good for people.
Interviewer: So how that relate to cottage cheese within that?
Nick: Well, it's kind of you give a little, you take a little. The cottage cheese actually what Dr. Budiwig said was, she called it quark but the closest we have in our world is cottage cheese, it's the oil. Her whole thing was about linseed oil. Well, the only thing we know about linseed oil is if you oxidize it it's use in oil-based paint. Well, who wants to eat oil-based paint? But quark is essentially cottage cheese so in terms of diet like three tablespoons is like acceptable but a glass of milk on a routine basis and heavy cream and all these things, no, I don't do that. So I guess you could say in every rule there's an exception, cottage cheese in this case is an exception but you don't have to use cottage cheese, the whole idea is flax. One of the things that flax contains is lignan. Lignan is a material that helps to prevent cancer and again I read so many books on what to do and what not to do, makes your head spin but I tried to do everything that seemed reasonable to me and avoid those things that are clearly causing me a problem primarily sugar. So if you say, "How does that work? Why is sugar so bad?" What really happens is -- and when I did my thing at Old Orchard Beach I included a video that I got from my doctor in California, Cenegenics Institute that describe what exactly happens in your body when you consume sugar. What happens to the need for insulin? What happens to your kidneys? What happens to your pancreas and what happens when you eat your muffin and whatever else you have for breakfast and then 10 o"clock you're hungry as a bear and you eat another muffin or a bagel or something and then at lunch time you might go have some other kind of fat food and then in the afternoon want to take a nap but you can't because somebody's looking. What sugar does is it causes glycemic spikes and the glucose, sugar in your blood declines and your insulin does not decline as fast and so you go through this cycle and over time by having too much glucose or sugar in your blood the formation of what's called AGE's these are proteins that hook up with -- the AGE is a protein that grabs on to the sugar and makes it very sticky substance and the AGE's are cancer-causing materials and so sugar is like slow death and that's not a very light comment, sugar is slow death.
Interviewer: Yes, I completely agree. I've noticed over the last 3, 4, 5, years like it was like when I first started working at the mental health center, I started bringing all the stuff up and I was like shunned for it. Like I was sitting in a room with all these therapists and everything and I bring up fat was the major evil at that point and sugar was not really talked about and I would bring this up and I was just getting like crapped on, crapped on and crapped on by the people then now it's like pretty well known, thankfully.
Nick: Yes. Yes that's true, it is pretty well-known and that was one of the motivations for me to think about in nature we have sugar. Well, okay yes, sugar is sweet but it's also addictive like cocaine. It's more addictive than cocaine and I think the literature will bear me out on that statement and so I figured that in nature it doesn't make any sense to me that there is only one source for sweetness that is sugar. So I researched it and found that there are, I found 190 different compounds that are natural, naturally occurring compounds and I put them in a book and that's, is on Amazon and Kindle. What you can do, you don't have to give up sweetness but you should give up sugar. So there are products on the market, you'd get them at Amazon or Traders Joe's or Health Foods store. Things that are made from monk fruit and [Inaudible] one of them is Lakanto, is made by Sanyo in Japan and the cool thing is, that it's a one to one substitute for sugar. It's heat stable so you can cook and bake with it. It cost more than sugar but in the long run sugar cost more than anything because it's going to screw up your health and you pay later. Just like I said earlier, buy now pay later. But you're better off with Lakanto or Nativa or there are five or six different materials that are natural. They're virtually all based on monk fruit or Stevia.
Interviewer: Stevia, yes.
Nick: Stevia is good but Stevia, that's another whole long story. How come is it that Stevia is not used in foods as the manufacturers use things like a aspartame and other laboratory derived sweeteners? Well, the answer is money. So I just go as a side track here, I like sweeteners and Stevia, we've known that people in South American countries have been chewing stevia leaves for thousands of years and yet EPA here says, "We'll no, you can only sell as a food supplement." Well, the reason for that is simple. The major softdrink producers lobbied to have it outlawed, you cannot claim it's a sweetener. Well, that was like years ago and it was like 1967, 77, 87 they come up with all these aspartame and all these other artificial chemicals.
Interviewer: What do you think was the motive was behind that? Do you think it was just money?
Nick: Yes, greed, money. money, money. You can't make money from stevia because you can't make stevia in a lab and so it's not profitable so the hell with it so you got to ban it, and they did. But now it's kind of like come full circle and what they wanted to do was they will -- gee whiz, there are so many studies coming out now that describe the impact of sugar and artificial sweeteners on obesity that maybe we got to figure something else out so what they've done is they've taken the stevia molecule and they found a specific material in the stevia leaf that is sweet or sweetness and it's called rebaudioside. So they went back to EPA and said, "Well, we have overcome this business of stevia that you can't sell it as a food supplement but what we did learn is that if you take rebaudioside it's an ingredient in stevia and it is sweet and it would be a good substitute for sugar and so it's been approved. So the people that got it banned in the first place found a way around it by doing some chemical fancy like a fancy chemical work with the leaf and now you'll find that rebaudioside is going to be found in sodas, softdrinks, bakery products etcetera but it's an extract of stevia.
Interviewer: So do you think that's a positive thing that, that happened, that, that's going on?
Nick: It is a positive thing because number one, it eliminates or overcome the need for sugar and number two, it overcomes the toxicology and that is associated with artificial sweeteners. Any artificial sweetener is a chemical that was made in the laboratory that your body simply does not recognize and all it does is screw up your kidneys and screw up your liver, screw up your whole gut health and you get fat. In my book on sugar what I said is that there was a study where people were given, they were put on a diet of -- this group has this particular kind of food based on sugar and this group uses an artificial sugar substitute and zero calorie material. Well, the zero calorie group gained more weight than the sugar group. I think it will [Crosstalk ]
Interviewer: Those were the artificial sweeteners, the studies done?
Nick: Yes the artificial sweeteners made people fat.
Interviewer: We're talking aspertame and sucralose.
Nick: Yes exactly and it's like, "Well, we're going to do something about that." So along come rebaudioside and yes it is good and that it eliminates sugar and it also eliminates artificial sweeteners and it's all good. But there are other negatives associated with drinking sodas that maybe would be a subject for a whole other discussion. The normal body pH in particular, pH of your blood is 7.34 and what you want to do in order to maintain good health is have your body pH be as close to 7 as physically possible. Well, you can do that by eating foods that promote alkalinity in your system and that the ratio of alkaline to acid food is normally about 80 to 20. Well, the 20, the acid forming foods essentially are proteins. Well, we need proteins so it's not the kind of thing where you can't eat this, you can't eat meat anymore. There are other ways to get protein aside from meat but it's still an acid forming ash in your system so you have to learn again. There's more learning you have to understand what is this food doing for me? What is the impact on pH? One of the things that I paid strict attention to is my cancer diagnosis was the average pH of food. So what I did was I monitored my urine to make sure that everyday every morning when I wake up my pH is at least 6.5. Ideally 7 and I was able to maintain that and I still do. I'm very careful about what I eat because I understand what would be the impact of this food on my total body pH. So total body pH is a critical consideration.
Interviewer: So yes, I'm all for the alkaline diet and all that. Number one argument I hear from people is that is not a true thing because your blood regulates the pH so even if it goes more acidic from eating something acidic it goes back so how would you respond to people that say that?
Nick: Well, you could look and say, "Well, yes I understand what you're saying but different parts of your body have different pH's. The pH of your skin is different from the pH of your blood, it's different from the pH of your large colon. The pH of large colon is 8. Well, that's kind of toxic. It's corrosive but it's the natural thing so using urine or saliva as a monitor and sticking as close as possible to 7 or as the blood is 7.34, pretty much guarantees that your total system if you're out of wack and your pee, your urine, your urinary or the pH of your urine is low it's a flag. It's an indication that your diet is not right. So the response is that it's not a "be-all, end-all" but it's pretty darn close. So I don't know if that answers your questions but there are, for anything that anyone recommends that you do to control the symptom of a disease, you can go to literature and you can find things that say, "You're full of crap" or things that will support the concept and you have to make your own decision but each individual is responsible for being the janitor to clean up the mess you made of your system. That's your job. It's your job. It's not your doctor's job.
