Cancer Fighting Strategies

There are many different strategies when it comes to fighting cancer. These can vary depending on each patient’s medical history, lifestyle, gender, etc. and therefore should be tailored individually to ensure the highest rate of success. Dr. Allibone specializes in extremely individualized health plans depending on each different patient.

Steps to Take

It’s important to establish whether or not underlying toxic metals are present. This is done with an Intravenous Chelation Challenge.

Eliminate Oxidative Stress

  • Proper diet
  • Antioxidants, including Vitamins A, E, C, and D3. Extremely effective antioxidants include N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC), Alpha-lipoic acid, Superoxide dismutase, and Grape seed extract.

Ensure a proper functioning digestive tract

  • Good diet
  • Enzymes and hydrochloric acid to aid digestion especially in the aging population
  • Probiotics
  • Colonics (plus probiotics post-procedure)
  • Keep meat consumption down. Arachidonic acid gives rise to inflammatory changes.

Support Liver Function

  • Low alcohol consumption
  • Milk thistle
  • Dandelion root
  • Active principle of vitamin A is Abscisic acid; liver is needed for its conversion

Biopharmacological Therapies

  • Alkylglycerols (ultramarine shark liver oil)
  • Shark cartilage: sharks probably have these two substances to thank for their low incidence of cancer, anti-angiogenic
  • Immune-enhancing therapies
  • Transfer factors from 4Life (4-life immune transfer factors tri-factor therapy)
  • Colostrum
  • Lactoferrin
  • Glutathione (contains three essential amino-acids, cysteine, glutamine and glycine; also present is valine)
  • Vitamin A (abscisic acid neutralizes the protective HCG to cancer cells, so the associated microbes often found in cancer cells stop growing)

Anti-Viral Therapies

  • Echinacea
  • Goldenseal
  • Astralagus
  • Interferon
  • Pranosine and Ziovirax
  • T/Tn antigen cancer vaccine (useful except in brain cancer as it passes poorly into the blood-brain barrier)

Immune Enhancers

  • Ginseng
  • Astragalus
  • Bromelain (pineapple)
  • Pollen
  • Green tea (Houston Wellness Clinic sells great-tasting and extremely healthy, pure, and natural green tea)
  • Mushroom extract (nutratose/immune-enhancer/Leuco-zepin/immune (isotonics)
  • Mint (due to presence of phenolic acid)
  • Echinacea (increases NK cell, or natural killer cell; also contains arabinogalactin)
  • Olive leaf extract
  • Beta-glucans (found in whey protein)
  • Sarsaparilla/red clover/burdock root/chlorella/spirulina (last two aid growth and immune system repair)

Six Supplements

  • Vitamin E
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin D3
  • Vitamin A
  • Calcium
  • Selenium

Specific Cancer Aids

  • Exercise – Moderate exercise needed at least 30 minutes/day. If partaking in strenuous exercise, increase antioxidant intake.
  • Hydration – Maintain adequate hydration at all times. Your urine should remain pale yellow in color (except if taking B vitamins and drinking lots of carrot juice). Drink alkaline water whenever possible. Install an alkaline water filter for the kitchen faucet (test water after installation is complete and add alkaline drops).
  • Evamor (Whole Foods and Central Market)
  • Apple cider vinegar
  • Homemade lemonade (sparkling water plus 2-3 lemons with Stevia)
  • Wheatgrass
  • Aloe vera juice
  • Green tea or green herbal tea (
  • Avoid EMF (Electro-Magnetic Frequency) as a precaution since there is still reason to believe that this leads to cancer. Do not sit near TV, avoid being near microwave/microwave cooking when possible, cell phones, fluorescent lights, and living near power lines.
  • Balance hormones
  • Maintain correct estrogen/progesterone balance
  • Maintain appropriate levels of DHEA (immune modulator)
  • Infra-red sauna
  • Massage/meditation
  • Acupuncture
  • Support adrenal glands
  • Mood downgraders: Gaba, St. John’s Wort, Vallerian root, Kavakava, 5 hydroxy-triptophan)
  • CHML
  • B-Haelin (fermented soy), available at Houston Wellness Clinic
  • Immunocal (whey protein), available at Houston Wellness Clinic
  • Modified citrus pectin (attaches to cancer cells and prevents metastases)
  • Palladium lipoic acid (administered through IV and orally)
  • Graviola (anti-angiogenetic)
  • Mega-dose vitamin C

Foods to Avoid

  • Sugar
  • Processed foods
  • Simple carbohydrates
  • Refined foods
  • Saturated fats and partially hydrogenated fats
  • Red meats—consume only in small quantities, and take enzymes anti-inflammatories (arachidonic acid sets up inflammatory cascade)
  • Foods with additives, colorings and preservatives
  • Eat only organic fruits and vegetables when possible
  • Avoid foods that come in a container – tin, box or carton
  • Caffeine, especially coffee (dehydrates, may interfere with sleep, acidifies, and causes increased secretion of calcium, magnesium and potassium)
  • Avoid alcohol in excessive amounts (liver injury, depletes B vitamins, dehydrates, acidifies, damages brain cells and depresses the bone marrow). Take anti-alcohol antioxidants when expecting to consume more than two drinks.
  • Raw foods to avoid: oysters, undercooked eggs, clams and sushi (possibility of infection)

Good Foods

  • Mushrooms (high in selenium and B-vitamins)
  • Berries (the darker the berries, the higher the antioxidant level) – Good dark berries include blackberries, acai, super berries, and currants. Blueberries may acidify.
  • Wheat germ
  • Cruciferous vegetables (high in phytonutrients, alkaline, lutein and zeaxanthin, the last two of which are powerful antioxidants)
  • Leafy green vegetables
  • Wheat grain
  • Citrus fruits – Grapefruit contains monoterpenes that sweep carcinogens out of the body and alkalinizes it. Oranges and lemons contain limonene, which stimulates Natural Killer Cells (NKC).
  • Carrot soup, sweet potatoes, lentils (acidify), curry spices (great source of anti-inflammatory due to presence of turmeric)
  • Ginger (helpful against ovarian cancer)
  • Avocados (rich in potassium, and helpful in mouth cancer)
  • Nuts – Brazil nuts are high in selenium, containing quercetin and campferol that protect against many cancers
  • Red wine and dark chocolate – Both contain polyphenols that protect against many cancers. They also both acidify, and red wine contains significant amounts of resveratrol for anti-aging purposes.
  • Seaweed – Contains chlorophylones, important fatty acids that help fight cancer. Seaweed also alkalinizes and acts as an effective detoxifier.
  • Asparagus – Part of the Lily (Liliacea) family, alongside onions and garlic. It is a detoxifier, alkalinizer, anti-inflammatory, and has good anti-cancer properties due to its high levels of folate. Cancer patients must take extra supplementation of tetra-hydrofolic acid. Asparagus also contains vitamin K, which helps prevent osteoporosis. It is also rich in potassium, and vitamin A.
  • Green tea/black tea (both contain Kaempferol which is effective against ovarian cancer)
  • Tumeric/curcumin (curry powder)- This inhibits cyclo-oxygenase (cox 2), which is significantly raised in cases of inflammatory disease and cancer.
  • Papaya – Contains high levels of antioxidants (20 times the antioxidant level of vitamin E). Papaya also contains papain which helps in digestion.


Alkalinizing/Acidifying Foods

One has to be practical about consumption of these foods since one has to ingest some acidifying foods as part of a varied diet. This issue is overcome by ensuring that alkaline foods outweigh the acidic foods, drinking alkaline water with the meal, and combining alkaline smoothies with meals.

  • Alkaline foods: alfalfa, beets, broccoli, carrots, cauliflower/cabbage, Brussels sprouts, cucumbers/celery, eggplant, green beans/green peas, lettuce/arugula/spinach, onions/garlic, mushrooms, peppers, pumpkins, radishes, and tomatoes
  • Acidifying foods: blueberries, cranberries, currants, plums/prunes, corn, lentils, olives, grains such as oatmeal, bread, noodles, macaroni, quinoa, spaghetti, pasta and rice
  • Acidifying oils/fats: olive oil, canola oil, corn oil, safflower oil, sesame oil, sunflower oil, hemp seed oil, and avocado oil
  • Acidifying sweeteners: carob, corn syrup, sugar, honey, artificial sweeteners except Stevia
  • Acidifying alcohols: beer, hard liquor/spirits, wine
  • Other foods: cocoa, catsup, coffee, black tea, pepper, vinegar
  • Other alkalinizing foods: bee pollen, green juice, blackstrap molasses, probiotics, vegetable juice, soured dairy products
  • Acidifying beans/legumes: almond milk, rice milk, chick peas, soy beans, soy milk
  • Alkalinizing fruits: apples, bananas, avocados, apricots, blackberries, cantaloupes, cherries, dates, grapes, grapefruit, lemons, limes, oranges/tangerines, pears, pineapples, raspberries, strawberries, tomatoes, watermelons
  • Alkalinizing proteins: almonds, whey protein, chestnuts
  • Alkalinizing spices: cinnamon, curry, ginger, mustard
  • Acidifying animal protein: beef, pork, chicken, turkey, rabbit, cod, haddock, salmon, sardines, shell fish, clams, oysters, veal, venison, lamb, corned beef, sausage

"I was diagnosed 2 years ago with highly malignant tumor of the brain... 95% of my tumor was removed surgically. I then ambarked on a course of anti-cancer therapy advocated by Dr. Allibone. At present it appears there is no return, or increase in size of the residual tumor..."

  • Dr. George Allibone saved my life, when I came to Dr. Allibone I had already seen 6 different doctors' after less than two months under Dr. Allibone's care, I returned to school and work healthier than I have been in my life. If you are struggling with your health, Dr. George Allibone will not only give you hope, he will give you back your life.

  • Dear Dr. Allibone, I would like to take the opportunity to sincerely thank you for helping me resolve my elevated blood pressure without resorting to being tied to drugs for the rest of my life. Yesterday I had a blood pressure reading of 115/79.....I can't thank you enough!
    - Gordon Baltzer (High Blood Pressure)
  • When I first came to Houston Wellness Clinic, I was a year past my breast cancer diagnosis. I was looking for someone to who would care about my overall health and not just my cancer. I found Dr. Allibone through a recommendation from one of the eight doctors I was working with at the time. She explained the vast managements HWC offered and how each might help. She was right. When I first started, my hormones were imbalanced, I had tachycardia due to anemia from heavy periods, I was high in heavy metals, and was deficient in many vitamins. I was not in good shape. We began working on each issue and I began to see improvements quickly. Dr. Allibone put me on bioidentical progesterone to balance my hormones and regulate my cycle. This not only helped my energy, acne, and moods, but also helped with my anemia by shortening the amount of blood I was losing during my cycle. He also tweaked my vitamin regiment. I am now on high quality supplements that not only help me fight cancer but also fights the source of my cancer a hormonal imbalance. Also, we started to rid my body of heavy metals through supplements and chelation. Needless to say, I feel like a new person. Slowly, my list of eight doctors began to dwindle down to two, Dr. Allibone and my oncologist. I have full trust in HWC. I am very thankful to have found them.

  • Approximately, one year ago I broke my wrist. The Orthopedic surgeon advised me to get a plate and screws to internally stabilize the fracture as I had some underlying osteoporosis. I undertook aggressive intravenous therapy with bone restoration supplements. Within two weeks my fracture had healed. The orthopedic surgeon was so impressed, that he felt that there was no need for operative stabilization of my fractures. To this day I get IV bone restoration together with bio-identical hormone replacement from Houston Wellness Clinic to prevent osteoporosis developing. I am so grateful that I have been exposed to the healing modalities available to me at Houston Wellness with supplements, vitamins, minerals, and hormones that have none of the severe side-effects associated with some prescription medicines.
    - June A. (Osteoporosis)
  • For years I have been on prescription medication for several medical issues ranging from depression to allergies. As the list of medications grew, so did the side effects and more prescriptions were prescribed to counteract those side effects. It seemed like a never ending cycle. After meeting with Dr. Allibone, he came up with a management plan including diet, supplements, hormones and IV managements that has me off nearly all my medications and is actually fixing the issues, not just masking them with drugs. What has truly impressed me with Dr. Allibone is that he sits with me and discusses my management, he listens to me and my symptoms and we work together as a team to get my health to where it should be. Dr. Allibone has changed my life.
    - Lance (Prescription Medication Side Effects)
  • I started the HCG diet in mid March 2011 at a starting weight of 323 lbs. I had concerns about the low calorie intake but knew I needed something to kick start a healthier lifestyle. The first 10 days were not very difficult at all and I dropped 11 lbs. The next thirty days of the diet only got easier. I had days when I would have to remember to eat. My hunger just went away completely. I completed the diet at a weight of 289 lbs for a total loss of 34 lbs. I have been off the diet for 4 weeks now and with the help of Dr. Allibone I have lost another 10 lbs. I have done all kinds of diets: Atkins, Weight Watchers, and Slim Fast and not one has given me the results that Dr. Allibone has given me. I could not be happier with my results and the help that Dr. Allibone has given me.
    - Luke S. (Weight Loss/HCG Diet)
  • I started seeing Dr. Allibone about five months ago, for severe allergies, swelling in the faces, joint pain, and fatigue. I had a constant sinus infection for 23 years since I moved to Texas. With the Iv therapy, change in diet, and vitamins I have made steady progress. It has taken a lot of hard work from myself and Dr. Allibone, but we have turned the corner.
    - Mike (Allergies)
  • I have had great difficulty losing weight all my adult life. No doctor whether internist or endocrinologist ever could solve this issue. Within a short space time Houston Wellness Clinic discovered I had Reverse T3 syndrome. I am extremely excited about my new thyroid medication that is restoring me to normal thyroid function.
    - Name Confidential (Weight Loss/Thyroid Imbalance)
  • What do you say about the person who has given you your life back? It's a priceless gift. Lyme and it's co infections rip away and destroy every detail of your life including who you are. Nineteen years, over thirty specialists, years in the bed, and over twelve surgeries later, my journey finally lead me to Dr. Allibone. Dr. A is extremely knowledgeable. He cares and treats his patients when all others can't, and/or have given up. There is no challenge he won't face and seek the answers to. I did not know what normal felt like. I now know life without pain and it is beautiful. I will put my life and my families lives in his hands if it's ever needed again. I look forward to living the rest of my life healthy and lyme free. Thank you Dr. Allibone. Stephanie Busby ~ Lyme Warrior and Survivor

  • Dear Dr.Allibone, I had my second hip transplant on Oct 4. Both the surgeon and his physician's assistant were shocked at the quality of the bone in the second hip and told me because of it the surgery took only 1/2 of the time. I think my thanks to you is in high orders. See card...
    - Suzanne Marsh (Bone Density)
  • I was diagnosed 2 years ago with highly malignant tumor of the brain, 95% of my tumor was removed surgically. I then ambarked on a course of anti-cancer therapy advocated by Dr. Allibone. At present it appears there is no return, or increase in size of the residual tumor. In my opinion, if I followed conventional therapy advocated by the cancer specialist in the UK and USA, I believe I would have had the same results as Mr. Ballesteros.
    - William Moolman (Brain Cancer)
  • Dear George Seldom in my life, have I ever been at a loss for how to express my thoughts period. However, I find myself wanting to say grateful, appreciative, indebted, fortunate, and just plain lucky, as if they were one word. My debilitating symptoms were not recognized by 5  very well regarded specialist in their fields, and then I found myself in your office. After just 10 days, I've actually gotten a life back, that doesn't have me needing to lie down for even 5 minutes. The past many months had me lying down for hours everyday. Enough about me, as I prefer to talk about you, and how much you mean to both Herb and I. Thank you for your dedication to what you do and for your caring for me! Sincerely Arlyne
