Alternative cancer remedies are abundant, some having been used medicinally for thousands of years. The ancient Chinese developed herbal concoctions that are still used by traditional Chinese practitioners today as herbal remedies for cancer. The Eastern approach to medicine tends to be plant-based and to use the body's physiology (acupuncture), whereas Western medicine tends to depend on surgery and pharmaceuticals.

Metabolic therapy uses diet and enzymes and evolving cancer diet information to treat cancer in a non-toxic, non-invasive manner. Vaccines are used by some clinics in Mexico to try to stimulate the body to develop an immune system response to the cancer. A recent discovery are the anti-cancer properties of ellagic acid found in fruits such as red berries and pomegranates.

Alternative Cancer Remedies: Oxygen and Ozone Treatment

One of the more fascinating developments in alternative cancer remedies is the use of oxygen and ozone. It is a well-known fact that cancer cells flourish in glucose and in a fermented medium, but do not occur in healthy, highly-oxygenated conditions. This has led some involved in cancer treatment to conclude that lack of oxygen is the primary cause of cancer.

The idea behind oxygen and ozone alternative cancer remedies is that inundating cells with oxygen will slow the growth of cancerous cells or perhaps even cause them to revert to their normal state. Techniques include intravenous use of hydrogen peroxide, which is actually ozone therapy, and hyperbaric oxygen therapy, which has been used for strokes. Ozone therapy has been used extensively in Europe; ozone is a very active form of oxygen that has antiviral properties. For this reason, it has also been used to treat AIDS.
