IN MEMORY OF JOSEFINA CUA
(THE MOTIVATION OF THIS WEBSITE)
By Woon Lim, Supervising Appraiser, Los Angeles County Assessor Office
I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
Now, a crown is waiting for me. These words
could be Josefina Cua , an Appraiser in Region 5, who succumbed to her
battle with cancer on February 28, 2001.
Josefina was born on December 22, 1950 in Manila, Philippines.
She graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics.
While a student in college, she also taught school part time. In
1972 she married Stanley Cua, a chemical engineer in Region 30.
They came to the United States in 1985. Stan credits Josefina for
creating and maintaining a loving, nurturing home for their three children.
Josefina joined Los Angeles County in 1990 as a clerk in the Pasadena
office. In 1997 she was accepted into Appraiser Training Class 56.
To those of us who were fortunate enough to have worked closely with Josefina,
she was more than a colleague, she was a dear and beloved friend.
She was kind, generous, and extremely considerate. She would go out
of her way to help others and never expect anything in return. Even
during her illness, she still made time for her family, friends, and coworkers.
She never complained about her troubles, but was always an encouragement
to those she came into contact with, including those she met while undergoing
her cancer treatment.
She was the best coworker anyone could have asked for. She was
conscientious, cooperative and willing to carry more than her fair share
of the workload. She was a constant inspiration to us all.
All of us who knew her will miss her very much, but her loving and caring
acts will linger fondly in our memories.

A MESSAGE FROM STANLEY, THE WEBSITE HOST
Updated March 10, 2010
Although I started my interest in alternative cancer treatments after reading the book “Vitamin B17,
Forbidden Weapon Against Cancer?written by Michael Culbert and compiling Chinese herbal formulas
used in treating cancer in early 1980, I started reading publications in western alternative cancer treatments
intensively when my wife was found to have very high white blood cell counts (WBC) of 50,000 during a
routine checkup in 1991. Normal WBC is about 10,000 and leukemia is about 100,000 and higher.
My wife was not considered to have leukemia but her HMO oncologist could not give her any medication
to prevent the onset of leukemia except to supplement with iron and vitamin B12, and to continuously monitor
the WBC. Her WBC slowly returned to normal range after 6 years without medication. Before we could
celebrate the return to normalcy of WBC she was diagnosed with colon cancer in 1998. After almost 3
years of struggle using the conventional surgery, radiation, chemotherapy and some alternative treatments,
she finally succumbed to the disease on February 28, 2001.
The volume of publications on alternative cancer treatments I have read for the past few decades was much
more than those I had read for my doctorate dissertation in Chemical Engineering. However, I have not
found a really permanent cure for cancer, but I have encountered many alternative treatments that were
reported to cure cancer, and have seen patients testifying that they were cured by some alternative treatments
after being abandoned by the conventional treatments in many annual Cancer Control Conventions hosted by
the Cancer Control Society in Los Angeles. I would like to share my opinion on the information and
knowledge I have acquired in my decades of research in alternative cancer treatments below.
There are hundreds of alternative treatments of cancer that have been reported in the past 70 years.
For those who are interested in the treatments the book “Cancer Therapy, The Independent Consumer's
Guide To Non-Toxic Treatment & Prevention? Ralph W. Moss, PhD, published in 1992 that gave almost
a hundred treatments prior to the publication can be a good starting point. Presently the website
containing more than 200 treatments can also be a good reference.
Successes in the use of alternative treatments to cure cancer were almost all anecdotal or doctor's reports
but not in the orthodox clinical trial settings. This was because the proponents of the alternative cancer
treatments didn't have the private or government support to conduct the very expensive clinical trials.
But as Dr. Rose Hauser pointed out in the book Hauser & Hauser, “Treating Cancer with Insulin Potentiation
Therapy? 2002, p97, "What most people do not realize is that throughout most of the history "proof" of the
safety and effectiveness of a new drug or therapy was provided by testimonials from satisfied patients or
their doctors, which were then publicized. For many of the most famous treatments available, this is all that
was used to get the treatment accepted. This includes penicillin for bacterial infections and insulin for diabetes."
When an alternative cancer treatment became popular because of the many testimonies from patients cured
by the treatment, FDA would step in to stop or eliminate the treatment. This is tragic because some of the
treatments or equipment used were totally destroyed and can't be duplicated, we will never know if they
were really ineffective as the FDA claimed. Some writers believed there was a cancer industry and
conspiracy in North America that controlled the cancer treatments, any treatment that was not the
conventional surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy was to be eliminated. The most well-known examples
were the herbal treatment of Harry Hoxsey, nutritional treatment of Max Gerson, Glyoxylide of William
Koch, Krebiozen of Andrew Ivy, resonance treatment of Royal Rife, toxins of William Coley, vaccines of
Virginia Livingston, laetrile of Ernst Krebs Jr, DMSO of Stanley Jacob, antineoplastons of Stanislao
Bursynski, hydrazine sulfate of Joseph Gold, essiac tea of Rene Caisse and 714-X of Gaston Naessens
in Canada. If any of these treatments were effective, can you imagine how many cancer patients would
have been saved just counting those who died from half a million in the 1980s to one million annually in
2010s in North America. Readers who are interested in the stories and the politics of these cancer
treatments may find the following books and websites very informative.

director of public relations of Memorial Sloane Kettering Cancer Center)

More to be added.
I have started a new webpage “My Humble Opinion?series on February 28, 2010, nine years after my wife
became a victim of cancer. I will continue to disseminate the information in the series on those alternative
cancer treatments that have shown effectiveness and have testimonials from the doctors who dare to use the
treatments and the surviving patients. Those treatments have to be available at present, I will concentrate on
those low cost but effective treatments so that the poor patients can be benefited. I will concentrate more on
nutrition and diet, and Integrated Traditional Chinese Medicine (ITCM) in the treatments of cancer in the
series. I feel that the present ITCM practiced in the large hospitals in China has the trend of toward using
western conventional surgery, radiation and chemotherapy as the primary treatment and Traditional Chinese
Medicine (TCM) as the secondary or supportive treatment. It should be the reverse, that is, the western
conventional treatments should serve as the supportive treatment, particularly the radiation and chemotherapy,
they should be considered as “poison against poison?in one of about 6 modalities in the use of TCM in
treating cancer. In fact TCM should integrate with western nutrition and diet treatments and use only radiation
and chemotherapy as last resort to burn and poison the cancer cells. Traditional Chinese Medicine had
already stated 5000 years ago in the famous book “HuangDiNeiJing?that food and medicine come from the
same source, food should be used first to treat disease, medicine such as plant herbs is to be used if food is
not enough to cure the disease. History will tell in the future if radiation and chemotherapy as used today is
appropriate or is a mistake.
A MESSAGE FROM STANLEY, THE WEBSITE HOST
April 18, 2007
When you turn to this webpage I am sorry to say that you are probably the love one, a relative,
or a very good friend of a cancer patient, or a cancer patient yourself. It is also possible that you or
the cancer patient had been treated by the conventional surgery, radiation or chemotherapy but was
not cured and was given up, and now is in the terminal stage, a hopeless case in the eyes of oncologists.
Do not despair, do not give up, especially the terminal patient, there is high hope that you may find
a cure of your case from the testimonials. I have set an ambitious number of
1000 testimonials to be my present target, but I have the confidence that I will collect much more than 1000.
Presently I have more than a hundred testimonials that are waiting for me to organize before posting them,
there are also more than a hundred clinics and hospitals listed in the book "Third Opinion" 4th edition,
2005, written by John Fink that may have more than a thousand testimonials that I plan to collect.
If I include in the future the testimonials from China who used Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)
alone to cure their cancer disease I may
reach a target of 10,000 testimonials. So you see you have a very very good chance of being cured by the
non-conventional, non-toxic alternative therapies.
If anyone tells you these alternative treatments are
not proven or are quack, he or she is either ignorant or not telling the truth. So cheer up, cancer is
not as horrible as the orthodox medicine wants you to believe, there were some testimonials of cancer
being cured by psychological means, which in simple language is to forget about the disease in your mind,
watch Charlie Chaplain or some other comedy videos and laugh as much as you can, who knows, your cancer
may just disappear without your knowing. The TCM doctor in Shanghai who had many long-term surviving
patients told me that almost all of those survivors were optimistic and had fighting spirit. Although it is
impossible to know if the treatment you select can cure your cancer, having an optimistic hope that you will
be cured may increase your survival rate, there is a connection between our mind and the immune system
which some researchers have proposed but have not been verified and accepted by the medical community yet.
Another piece of information that will cheer you up is a review of 741 cases of spontaneous regression from
1900 to 1987 by Challis and Stam in the medical journal Acta Oncol in 1990 cited by Donald H. MacAdam in
his book Spontaneous Regression, Cancer and the Immune System, 2003. MacAdam further pointed out that if cases
before 1900 and after 1987 were included, at least 1000 cases of spontaneous regression in cancer could be cited
based on the standard definition of spontaneous regression of Dr Everson and Dr Cole as the partial or complete
disapearance of a malignant tumor in the absence of all treatment or in the presence of therapy considered
inadequate to exert a significant influence on the disease. Spontaneous regression is something medical community
cannot explain, your oncologist will usually tell you it very very seldom happens, and if it happens it is a miracle.
But would you consider 1000 cases all miracles? or would you think there may be a connection between cancer and the
immune system that may be related to your mind and optimism?
This website will help you search for the
best of many alternative treatments that can cure the cancer disease but are not known to your oncologist.
Yes, as you will see from the various testimonials, some were already in terminal
stage and were given up by the orthodox medicine but were saved by the alternative treatments that the
oncologists were not aware of or refused to accept. You can also talk to those lucky survivors if they have
the contact information.
You may ask why I am hosting this website, I have a simple answer: Because my most beloved wife became a cancer
victim 6 years ago and we couldn't find enough testimonials although we found many alternative treatments after the
ineffective conventional surgery, radiation and chemotherapy, we didn't know which to choose that would be best
for her, I had the firsthand experience of this helplessness, I would want to help the cancer patients not to
experience the same helplessness.
Now you have a better chance to get the right one from many testimonials that had similar type of cancer
who were saved by a specific alternative treatment. For example, if it is skin cancer, we know that the Gerson
Therapy or Hoxsey Therapy had many melanoma survivors; if it is brain cancer, the Burzynski, Polymva, or
Protocel had many brain cancer survivors; if it is liver cancer, the TCM tianxian in China had
many testimonials; if it is breast cancer, various alternative treatments can be seen to have many
breast cancer survivors and you can select the one that suits you best. However, you have to use
your own judgment in the selection because people sometimes exaggerate unintentionally in their testimonials
although they have the best intention to help other patients.
I am only collecting the testimonials of alternative treatments because you can't get those information from the
conventional doctors since alternative medicine is not accepted by the American Medical Association. I personally believe the
collection of those testimonials will benefit cancer patients and may save some terminal stage IV patients.
Why is American Medical Association or the National Cancer Institute or the American Cancer Society so much against
alternative medicine? You can find out in the book "The Cancer Industry" written by Ralph Moss, PhD, who was once
the assistant director of public affair at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, one of the well-known extremely
orthodox cancer research center in America. The book was written by an insider of a cancer research center endorsed
by the American Medical Association and supported by our huge tax money, it was a classic expose on the cancer
Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) Cancer Therapy
February 28, 2009
Low Dose Naltrexone or LDN therapy is the latest addition of alternative treatment to cancer arsenal.
Although it is not widely known now it may become a major alternative treatment for cancer in the future,
mainly because it is a generic drug that the patient can easily obtain if the patient has an understanding
primary physician or healthcare taker. Moreover, it is extremely inexpensive, less than a dollar a day at
present, and it is very easy to use just like taking an aspirin once a day before bedtime. I am very sure
that the so-called cancer industry will try everything to discourage the therapy. However, in the present
age of internet the patients have a very powerful weapon to band together in the persuit of an effective
and inexpensive cancer treatment, and that is the latest trend of "internet clinical trials" initiated and
conducted by the patients themselves. Sooner or later there will be groups of patients sharing their
experience on the internet in the use of LDN to treat their cancer disease.
The two most important findings of LDN cancer therapy are (1) the inhibition of the proliferation of cancer
cells, and (2) the anti-angiogenesis (the property of the inhibition of generating new blood vessels) of
Naltrexone was found also to have a very unusual property, when it is used at high dose such as above 100 mg daily,
cancer cell proliferation is enhanced, but when used at low dose such as 4.5 mg daily, cancer cell
proliferation is inhibited. Naltrexone doesn't kill cancer cells, it has no cytotoxic property, it enhances
the body's immune system to eliminate the cancer cells. Its toxicity had been well established decades ago
and approved by the FDA, the normal therapeutic range is 50 to 300 mg daily. At the low dose of less than 5 mg
daily it is non-toxic, probably less toxic than aspirin.
LDN is not only used in cancer treatment, at present it is also used in autoimmune diseases,
multiple sclerosis, neurodegenerative disorders, autism spectrum disorders, and AIDS (presently clinical trials
using LDN is being conducted in Mali of northwestern Africa, former Sudanese Republic). The website is
The most recent book on LDN is "The Promise of Low Dose Naltrexone Therapy" written by two authors.
The first author, Elaine Moore, has worked in hospital laboratories for more
than 30 years, primarily in immunohematology and toxicology. The second author, Samantha Wilkinson, is a
patient advocate for multiple sclerosis and LDN. Through her website
www.ldners.org she educates patients about current LDN research.
Here is part of the book pertaining to cancer treatment
It is highly recommended that the patients should buy the book for reference. The
