Rudolf Breuss Cancer Cure

The Rudolf Breuss Cancer Cure is the most wildly acclaimed treatment for cancer.  His book has sold over 900,000 copies, been translated into five languages, offering simple and effective healing prescription for cancer and chronic disease boasting of over 45,000 testimonials from cured sufferers.

Hilde Hemmes: “What convinced me most about the book, apart from the simple and effective cures, were the convincing testimonials written by those who were cured of disease” said Hilde. “Over 45,000 people attest to the fact that Breuss ‘s simple treatment had cured them, often after they had been ‘given up’ by the orthodox medical establishment. This evidence was hard to ignore! I just had to let my herbal friends in Australia share with this man’s extraordinary gift for healing.”

Rudolf Breuss was a healer from Austria, an educated man who had an incredible understanding of, and love for, his fellow human beings. Born in 1899, he turned his attention to finding an alternative and more gentle treatment for cancer and other diseases than that offered by conventional medicine. It was a simple German book written over 300 years previously that expounded the value and use of fruit and vegetable juices which was to capture his attention and direct his work for the rest of his life.

Cancer Theory of Rudolf Breuss

Breuss maintained that cancer, whenever it occurs in the body, feeds and grows from protein. He therefore deduced that if one fasted for what has now been confirmed as an ideal period of 42 days, during which various herbal teas and juices are taken to detoxify, cleanse and eliminate, the cancer would starve, be absorbed and subsequently pass out of the body one way or another. Radical thinking that flew in the face of the accepted medical wisdom, but is now used all over the world and known as the Breuss Total Cancer Treatment.

Raw fruit and vegetable juices have always been used and recommended in natural medicine as part of the healing system for many ailments and chronic complaints. Raw juices contain antioxidants and living enzymes that science has identified as an imperative part of everyone’s diet if they wish to stay healthy and maintain a defense against all the toxins of today’s environment.

It is against this backdrop that Rudolf Breuss developed his Total Cancer Treatment, utilising the therapeutic properties of vegetable juices and herbal teas that have been implicated in the cure of many types of cancer.

The Breuss Tea mix and a specific mixture of organically grown carrot, beetroot, celery, Chinese radish and potato worked wonders on his patients. His mixture provided, in liquid form, all of the minerals and vitamins required by the body during the 42 day fast, whilst the body’s own resources are used in dealing with the diseased tissue. Testimonial after testimonial confirmed that his treatment worked.

The same blend of the Breuss Vegetable Juice is used in all manners of diseases, taken for a lesser period of time or with food, depending on the severity of the condition. Breuss’s book outlines cures for a variety of ailments – serious and those not so serious.

Various cancers, leukaemia and prostate disorders – even hay fever and infertility – have a cure according to Breuss!  Cancer can only live on the protein of solid food. Therefore, if you drink nothing but vegetable juice and teas for 42 days the cancerous tumor dies off while the body continues to do well.

When he was in his eighties, Breuss was taken to court by the Austrian medical fraternity who considered his simple and inexpensive cure to be too simple and inexpensive! He was acquitted when his defense lawyer, a cancer sufferer cured by Breuss, presented an entourage of cured patients who all attested to the success of his Total Cancer Treatment. The Austrian President, Rudolf Kirchschlaeger, even intervened on his behalf!

It is easy to see why Hilde Hemmes was so inspired when she heard his story. “Rudolf Breuss was a shining example of what a natural healer should be and he has been an inspiration to me. I have tried his six day vegetable and herbal tea cleansing diet and recommend that everyone should give their bodies a rest every six months. I felt absolutely fantastic and re-energised” said Hilde, who often works 14 hours a day.

Breuss Vegetable Juice Mixture

  • 55% red beet root, 300 grams
  • 20% carrots, 100 grams
  • 20% celery root, 100 grams
  • 3% raw potato, 10 to 30 grams options
  • 2% Black Radish, 10 to 30 grams The potato is optional except for liver cancer where it plays an important part.

This therapy can be done with either homemade juices or with fermented vegetable juices from a health food store.  Do not drink more than half a liter a day. The cocktail is made up with beets, carrots, celery roots, black radishes and potato.

Mix all these vegetables in a juicier and then strain to get rid of any sediment. Any solids may provide a breeding ground for cancer. Before starting the cure try one quarter liter of juice per day with your normal meal. Take this juice by the spoonful.

Don’t swallow right away and salivate it well. The instructions are to take one half cup of cold kidney tea first thing in the morning.
Then 30 to 60 minutes later take two cups warm herb tea made from St. John’s Wort, Peppermint and Lemon Balm. After another 30 to 60 minutes take a little vegetable juice and salivate well before swallowing.
Fifteen to 30 minutes later take another sip of vegetable juice. You should take some juice 10 to 15 times throughout the morning but only when you feel like it.

In between, drink warm or cold sage tea without sugar, as much as you like. At noon take one half cup of kidney tea and again before retiring at night. In the afternoon take a few sips of tea.
Any liquid should be sipped and well salivated. Kidney tea should be taken only during the first three weeks of the treatment. Along with this and throughout the time of therapy drink one cup of cold Cranesbill tea (geranium robertianum) per day.

Cranesbill contains a little radium. Sipping small quantities of tea and juice stimulates the flow of saliva and reduces the workload of the intestines.

For cancer of the bones and lungs, prepare a tea of Plantain (plantago major), Icelandic Moss, Lungwort, ground Ivy and Mullein. It does not matter if you can’t get them all.

Steep for 10 minutes and drink as much of this tea as you like, the more the better. In the case of tuberculosis you should also take one teaspoon of plantain seed along with a little water or tea.
During the complete treatment you should not take any food other than the vegetable juice mixture.

Rudolph Breuss was born in Austria in 1899. First he worked as an electrician, then as a naturopath. He developed the Breuss Cancer Cure or Breuss Total Cancer Treatment (ref 1-3). Breuss died in 1990 (ref 4).

Breuss Cancer Cure Theory

Breuss postulated that cancer cells live exclusively on solid foods (“…the only patients that died were patients that were given something to eat.” (ref 1-3)). He claimed that cancer cells are not able to feed upon vegetable juices and the cancers will die if patients ingest only vegetable juices and special teas for 42 days. Breuss quoted Bruno Vornarburg who said that the carcinogenic process was fed by proteins and that if there are no proteins in food, the tumor is unable to survive (ref 1-3). Furthermore, Breuss claimed that after a diet free of proteins, the body attacks and destroys the tumor like an “operation without knife”. Breuss also believed his intervention was not only a cure but also a protection against cancer (ref 1-3).

Breuss Cancer Treatment

The treatment is described in three books written by Breuss (ref 1-3), but it is not clear whether the publishers have changed, added or left out original statements. For example, the English translation of Breuss’ book does not mention that he did not allow radiation treatment and injections during his cure (ref 2). Further amendments were written by Thomar (ref 5,6).

Breuss rigidly stipulated that cancer patients are not allowed to drink or eat anything other than his juices and teas for 42 days. Breuss gave strict instructions about the preparation and taking of the juices and teas. Juices include beetroot, carrots, celeriac, black radish and potatoes if the patient has liver cancer. All vegetables used have to be organically grown and sediments of the vegetables must be removed. The maximum ingested amount of juice is 500 ml per day.

“He (Breuss) claimed that cancer cells are not able to feed upon vegetable juices and the cancers will die if patients ingest only vegetable juices and special teas for 42 days”

Breuss allotted three teas for all types of cancers: sage tea, kidney tea and cranesbill tea. Sage tea includes sage (Salvia officinalis), St. John’s wort (Hypericum perforatum), peppermint (Mentha piperata) and balm (Melissa officinalis) in a special ratio. It could be taken when desired. Kidney tea includes horsetail (Equisetum arvense), stinging nettle (Urtica dioica), knotgrass (Polygonum aviculare) and St. John’s wort (Hypericum perforatum), in a special ratio and must be taken only for the first three weeks. Cranesbill tea includes red cranesbill (Geranium robertianum) and only one half cup of cold tea should be ingested per day. For special types of cancer, additional teas are recommended. All teas have to be taken without sugar.

For leukemia, Breuss stated that the patient had to drink the teas and juices but could eat everything except for meat soup, beef, pork and reheated food (ref 1-3) (the English translation mentions beef soup, pork, chemical food additives, burnt food and fats (ref 2)).

Breuss further stipulated that patients can not start the Breuss Cancer Cure immediately after surgery, but have to wait at least two to five months. No concurrent treatments are allowed during the treatment. He recommended fresh air and exercise and that smoking should be stopped. Furthermore, the patient must not sleep above so-called “water veins” (sources of ground radiation) and should avoid moth powder, insecticides, sprays or air fresheners in the house. Breuss claimed that patients who had completed the Breuss Cancer Cure should never again eat reheated food but should be allowed to gradually start eating salt-reduced, light food and to drink approximately 60 ml of the vegetable juice per day for a further two to four weeks.

Additional instructions were added in 1987 (ref 1, 2): patients should take one or two bowls of onion broth a day (only the liquid). To support the heart, patients should take 20 to 40 drops of hawthorn tincture (Crataegus oxyacantha). People with diabetes should continue insulin treatment.

Additional instructions were added in 1990 (ref 1): for substitution of calcium and potassium, patients should drink a tea made from plantain lance (Plantago lanceolata), broad-leaved plantain (Plantago major), Iceland moss (Cetraria islandica), lungwort (Pulmonaria officinalis), ground ivy (Glechoma hederacea), mullein (Verbascum thapsus) and Meum mutellina herb (Ligusticum mutellina). Patients with liver or gall bladder problems should drink a broth of bean pods instead of onion broth.

Breuss Cancer Cure Claims of Efficacy

Breuss claimed, that since 1950 he has treated more than 2,000 patients successfully. He estimates that since 1986, a further 40,000 patients with cancer and other “incurably sick persons” have been healed through his methods. As proof he cited testimonials and letters of thanks from the years 1971 to 1985 (ref 1-3) . Breuss claimed that treatment failures could only occur if his instructions were not followed strictly (ref 1-3) . He believed that about one million people could be healed, “if the so-called cancer research and the orthodox medicine would be with me instead against me” (ref 1).

Breuss Cancer Cure Prevalence of Use

Although the book the “Breuss Cancer Cure” was translated into Chinese, Croatian, English, French, Greek, Italian, Polish, Russian, Serbian and Spanish (ref 1, 2), no exact data on prevalence of use have been published. Internet searches located several patients reporting their experiences with the treatment (ref 6-8), and an internet homepage reported 14,820 visitors between August 2004 and the middle of September 2005 (ref 6). The Internet search also found one physician (ref 9) and one spa hotel (ref 10) offering the Breuss treatment.

Breuss Cancer Cure Costs

The juices are produced and promoted by Biotta INC. (ref 11) and Zwicky GmbH (ref 12). The juices can be bought in health food stores, drugstores and through the internet. The required 21 litres cost between €89 and €122. You can go to Tom’s Fasting Retreat in the Philippines to do a Bruess Juice Fast or be support on Premium Support through your cancer treatment.

    hello dears. i have cancer. bone cancer. i know this is funny but i always knew about fasting. my dad and my grandmom are a very big fans of that method. i have basically nothing left to use as a remedy now. so in this case il try your idea. i really want to live and have kids. probably that was god who told me about your secret. i dont know how to explain. because in my situation i strongly believed in herbs and vitamins but not dieting… and id love to see if thats true about a protein connection with tumor. honestly that sounds like a revolution to me! if that really is the way you saying then its a gods cure for humans. thats all. thank you. im in this starting from today….

  2. Tom Coghill says:

    Hi eugenya,
    One of the patients here had bone cancer that had metastasized from the prostrate. He could not urinate without burning and frequently with stoppages. There was pain in the back. Now he is peeing normal with no back pain. He was put on 1 liter of veggie juices a day.
    We will be publishing the research findings at the end of the treatment. He looks well and has no pain but we need a PSA, ultrasound and xray to verify.

    You are looking at 42 days with the minimum juice that you can handle. (cancer thrives on glucose and stops growing without it) With as much greens as possible.

    Are you overweight? Do you have a slow metabolism?
    How advanced is the cancer?

    I can give you a call if you email me the number.

  3. eugenya says:

    how cool is that! i have chondrosarcoma (cancer of cartilage) and i dont know if your treatment will work for me. Can you find out for me please? last time i was trying to fast 4 days and received heart palpitations. so i got scared and stopped. (the tumor is located close to heart probably) Please tell me if i should try your diet or not. theyr saying that only surgery is the treatment for chondrosarcoma… and theyl amputate ma arm probably.

  4. eugenya says:

    the tumor is on ma back . same area were the heart is.

  5. eugenya says:

    and else i cannot use any alternative therapy (already tried) it causes tumor to grow. god please help me. if you know any people that cured chondrosarcoma with breuss fasting please tell me about it!….

  6. eugenya says:

    tom please respond . i really need your answer.

  7. Tom Coghill says:

    Hi Eugenya,
    Sorry for the delay as we were traveling. As to chondrosarcoma (cancer of cartilage)there are no cases or documentation. I would say the the Breuss cure is your best primary treatment. You cannot lose by trying it. So far we are having excellent results. The hardest part is trying to obtain the black radish. You can get the seed on the internet but where to get them ready to consume is difficult. I will gladly support you on the fast.

  8. Ricardo says:

    I was diagnosed with limphoma, I have a tumor on my face but no were else so far;
    I’ve been tested and my bones are fine too;
    the cancer is only on my face;
    I am already drinking vegetable juice for 10 days after 9 days of master cleanse (lemonade);
    The doctors want to start quimotherapy but I refused;
    Any suggestions for me? How should do my cancer diet?
    Please contact me in case!

  9. Tom Coghill says:

    Hi Ricardo,
    You are welcome to come to our hospital and we will supervise treatment. The veggies for cancer treatment are beet carrot lemon celery, and some greens. The treatment lenght is 42 days, and the juice amount should be between 1/2 to one liter daily. An emema is recommened.

  10. jimio24 says:


    Im a 24 year old male and have bone sarcoma which originates from my pelvis and has also spread to my lungs. Ive been having chemotherepy since March this year but it has only really been stopping the cancer growing, not shrinking it. Im want to try the Bruess diet in the new year and was wondering if it is ok to drink water whilst on the diet or if you are only allowed the teas.

    Thanks. Jim

    • Tom Coghill says:

      Hi Jimio24,
      Having cancer is terrifying and when you try to fast you will face may pressures.
      The Bruess cure is long and tough as the juice amount is under on liter a day.
      You are welcome here at the hospital. You can get a room, with doctor supervision for under $20 a day.
      Yes drink water. The juices must be from a juice extractor and the black radish is very important.

  13. trent says:

    Are you still looking for subjects/particpants for a long term fast, perhaps as a way to see if a lymphoma tumor can be eradicated. if so let me know, I may have a good candidate

  14. Kieren Lim says:

    Dear Tom,

    I am writing from Asia, in Malaysia to be precise. I just bought The Breuss Cancer Cure book and am interested to help both my grandmother (who is in her 70s and taking medications for high blood pressure) and an aunt in her 50s having stomach cancer and have undergone chemotherapy but found another growth in her womb.
    My questions are as follows:

    1) For my grandmother, can she proceed with the juice diet while taking medications for her high blood pressure? Would it not be risky to go off the high blood pressure meds during the 42 day fast?

    2) Are there any distributors in the Asian region for me to get the herbal teas? Sage and kidney teas?

    Thank you.

  15. Emma says:

    Hi, my husband has just been diagnosed with peritoneal mesothelioma. Would you recommend the fasting and/or any other diet plan? Have there been any other meso sufferers who have been helped by this method? Please answer as soon as you can, we’re desperate as average life span after diagnosis is only 8 months – he’s only 36 and we have 2 young children… Thanks so much.

    • Tom Coghill says:

      Hi Emma
      I would certainly recommend restricted juice fasting or 40 to 50 days. We had one case or stage 4 cancer including cancer in the stomach lining with 4 large masses in the abdominal cavity. During the fast the bleeding stopped and the 4 tumors reduced dramatically in size. The was a marked reduction in pain. A few months later the cancer returned in another part of the body and she died. To beat cancer with fasting you have to get to get bone rack thin.
      As to diet, mostly raw, with juice, small amounts of food. I can call you on the phone if you send me your number. Treatment here at the hospital is very about $6 to $10 a day for a private room with bathroom and shower. You can even bring your children. It can be hard to go on a strict fast as home. Cooking smells and temptations are tough.
      If you use chemotherapy I recommend cannabinoids orally to reduce the pain and discomfort which also have proven tumor inhibition. Our research here is now focused on anti-angiogenesis drugs that may prove even more effective when combined with fasting.

  16. Daniela says:

    Im far away from my family and dont have much idea what is realy going on with my father but like 10 days ago I found out that my dad has “something” on his right lung and he is scheduled to take second 3days chemo on June 8th.I dont know how bad is because he doesnt allowed no one to talk to the dr and he is trying very hard to keep up with a good attitute.Im affraid that he will be very weak after chemo and I wonder when should we start we this diet after chemo.DOnt know what to do.Good luck to eveyone and thank you!

    Hello Eugenya,

    sorry for the DELAY, but I only found this website looking for English references about 1 week ago.

    The Breuss Cancer Cure is necessary, but is also very important to get out of the effected areas (the geopathic zones) causing the CANCER and other problems in your body.
    Rudolf Breuss even mentions this in his book.
    On the English version it is on page 100. Just follow the link to read an extract of his book online:,M1

    It is the same ad DETOXIFYING a body. You first have to stop putting more TOXINS (POISONS) into the body before you can start taking them out!

    Hope this helps!

    Kind regards

    My mum have been diagnosed with cervical cancer two (stage 2)months ago. She is undergoing cystoscopy next week to evaluate the extent of the cancer. I am not very keen for chemo, especially that it is much critisized. We are in South Africa, anywhere we could access the juice mixture/recipe?



    • Tom Coghill says:

      Hi Petula,
      The juice mix for the Bruess Cancer Cure is on the web. The hard part is the back radish. Very hard to find and usually you have to get the seeds from the usa and grow them. We treat cancer here at the hospital and the treatment is cheap. The air ticket is the expensive part.

  19. Karen Page says:

    Hi Tom

    It sounds like you have been helping people who have cancer at some kind of hospital. Could you tell me a bit more about what you do. I am trying to find some testimonies from people who have recently (in the past few years) done the 42-day Breuss treatment and cured themselves of cancer. Can you help?

    Thanks Karen

    • Tom Coghill says:

      Hi Karen
      Yes I direct the St. Theodore’s Hospital Wellness program that uses a version of the Bruess Cure. I am also looking for the same testimonies.
      We have had successes but as we are a hospital it is difficult to publish on cancer as it take 5 years remission free to establish clinical evidence. If you find any please let me know. We grow the black radish here.

  20. sergus says:

    Hi Tom,
    could you help me with may questions please ?
    I ‘m from Vancouver. I was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia in October 2009. I had one chemotherapy in that time and it did not help to me. My doctor refused to continue farther treatment except of regular testing blood counts, blood transfusen when it requires and regular antibiotics treatment for any infection/viral prevention.
    Could you help me with my fight with leukemia ?
    Thanks and regards

    • Tom Coghill says:

      Hi sergus,
      The best recommendation is one untested fully. 40 day restricted juice fasting with tumorx internally with a lowered dosage.
      We had one success with bone cancer on a 50 day juice fast of a terminal patient who is healthy 1 year later.
      We will help you if you are going on a fast. Juice fasting alone does not have consistent results and cures one in 10 terminal cases.
      With tumorx the success rate me be high. We have one success here at the hospital and are having his birthday party here at the house today. Count on us for support. I fully know too well that this is your only option.

      • sergus says:

        Hi Tom,
        thanks for your prompt reply. Could you advise what’s my first step to get your Hospital . As well , could I phone you in oder to talk about my treatment ?
        Can you advise your contact phone number and time for call .

    I have been fasting once a year, for almost 10 years, around Lent. The fasts, last anywhere from 4 weeks to 6 weeks. Right now I am halfway through a 10 day water fast, then I will switch to a 21 day juice fast. I have 2 types of juicers I use, the Samson Juicer, which is great for greens and soft fruit; and a Green Star, which is a wonderful juicer for everything else. The Green Star is much more efficient at extracting every last bit of juice from the pulp. It is a very dry pulp. The reason I did not buy the Champion juicer, which a friend of mine has, is because it does not do a good job at juicing leaves. Anyway, I have completed the Breuss fast back in 2003, with my husband, who had 4 stage male breast cancer. You are able to work on this fast, you are not as weak, like on a water fast, but one is more hungry on the Breuß fast, due to the juices, than on a water fast. On the Breuß fast,the teas, especially the kidney tea, which one does for the first 3 weeks, are very helpful to detoxify. He suggest specific teas, for specific diseases. My husband’s weight went from 97 kg, down to 70kg, after 42 days. BUT he still, to this day, has breast cancer. In fact, after 2003, it went to the lungs and bone. But he did not die. The thing is, he was so weak at the end of the fast, that he fainted almost every day of the last 2 weeks, so I added 240 mls of apple juice, but he still had problems with weakness and fainting. He told me he would never fast ever again, as it was grueling. I was the one who was in charge of this fast; I made the teas, and did all the prep work. I followed the directions right down to the smallest details. My husband is german, and we live in Germany. A health-food store, (Reformhaus) sold the Breuß juice, in brown bottles, and so I did not make fresh juice. THAT, I believe, is the reason this fast did not heal my huband’s cancer. I know a lot more about fasting now, and feel that all the enzymes and vitamins are either distroyed or deactiveated by the bottling process. And in bottles, which are not water-tight, there is the process of oxidation which occurs.
    I did the Breuß fast to help in healing arthritis, in my ankle, which Herr Breuß said would be healed after 3 weeks. He was right! To this day, my ankle is fine. And that on bottled juice!
    So my advice to anyone who wants to do this Breuß Fast to heal their cancer, is to use only fresh juice, follow the directions completely, and do coffee-enemas every other day, for the entire fast. The Breuß fast did not mention using enemas, but I am very glad to have done them, as the ememas assist in getting rid of baked-on, fermenting old feces, that stick to the colon. I made the experience, that after 6 weeks, (in the first 3 years of fasting) I was still releasing old, tire-like fecal matter, which looks very, very different from normal fecal matter. There are photos on the Internet which show this. It is usually flat, shaped like a colon, shiny, dark, and rubbery. You will be completely appalled and relieved to get rid of that crap. By the way, afer so many years of fasting, I rarely have such old, nasty crap come out of me. Almost never. Remember to take probiotics afer the fast to establish intestinal flora, which the enemas can wash out. And for 6 weeks of fasting one needs 2-3 weeks of reintroducing foods. GO SLOW! This is no joke: my mother-in-law’s friend, who did this fast, broke the fast with broiled chicken and died one day later in the hospital!!!
    Lastly, use deep-breathing, where the exhale is longer than the inhale, to combat those lows, which DO come. Then you can handle these lows, which usually last only hous, not days. I wish all of you abundant health, and healing.
    Yours truly,

    Dear Tom,

    I’ve been diagnosed with a huge “goitre plongeant” (in FR; I think it’s “substernal goiter” in EN), which is most probably non-cancerous at present.

    Operation & removal of my thyroid is suggested (asap as it could transform in cancerous cells) but I would do everything to avoid it and not to be on pills for the rest of my life. Although, I’m completely clueless… and frightened.

    Any experience with goiters “attacked” with Breuss diet – you or anyone else?

    Mille fois merci!

    Wishing everybody all the finest & health,

    (45 y., from Brussels, Belgium)

    I would like to share another therapy that is also helping Cancer patients. When you read what is curing these people it will also confirm how vegetable juice & pure water fasting, also help. Fasting would also rid the body of this I imagine. And Cancer loves HIGH acidic environments… so keep an eye on your PH balance by testing urine.. If you are able to keep yourself alkaline, cancer they say, cannot grow…

    hi tom,

    i would love to learn more about breuss cure.

    Hi Vertigine,
    We closed down holistic treatment and Dr. Clare is taking a leave of absence as chief of hospital.
    I have 1 more year of research ahead of me with the team before I consider another hospital program. We live about block away. I directed treatment so I am the guy to talk to. If this is regarding cancer, we developed a more effect treatment than the Bruess treatment. Our latest research is at We have one cancer treatment underway at the retreat and another successful hospital patient, from the USA recovered from cancer and living in Sagada.

    Hi there,

    My mother was diagnosed about 6 weeks ago with Stage IV colon cancer that has metastasized to the liver. She is 51 years old. The cancer in her liver is extremely aggressive, and her body likely fail with another chemo. In truth she was only able to undergo 1 full chemo treatment, and a low dose one the second time, as her white cell count was too low, and her biliruben was around 155. She has lost about 15-20 pounds, and is literally skin and bone. She is too weak to walk, but is still taking fluids. Our hope was to rehabilitate her strength using homeopathic remedies for liver function, as well as some macrobiotic foods to help with other things. I am seeing small improvements everyday! But I fear about feeding the cancer. I worry that not giving her protein will mean that she will fail due to malnourishment. Do you have any guidance or thoughts on the matter?

      Hi valerieanne,
      If you can make her a veggie juice mix of sugar beet, carrot, apple, cucumber and lemon it will help boost her immune system.
      Most important. Buy package 6 from as it is very effective for later stage cancers.
      Juice fasting is good but she will lose more weight but it is better to starve the cancer than have the cancer starve her.
      All cooked food need to be cut from the diet especially during enzyme therapy the active component of “package 6″.

        Hi Tom,
        my name is Simone. I am from Ontario and I am very interested in the Breuss treatment.
        I used to have lots of problems with my stomach……healed it ones with the veggie juice……..but I just started to have pain again in my left side … just had some test on me to see if it is ulcer again. I used to have the Pyloric bacteria plus reflux gastro esofagian……Hope I am not getting this again. …..However I am getting prepaid for whatever it is……
        Would you be able to give me more details regarding places available to go and have the treatment done under supervision? Is there anything like that in Canada or states too?
        here is my phone number: 905-966-7496 or e-mail me at:
        I hope you will answer me as soon as possible.

    I was given Dr. Bruess’ book shortly after being diagnosed with rectal cancer. Not sure of the stage but is a tumour the size of a walnut and is of a low grade. I see many testimonials on other cancers but there really isn’t much mention of colorectal cancer. I would love to follow the protocol but my naturopathic dietician says raw veggies, even juiced aggravates rectal cancer. I have one other hiccup in the protocol and that is I’m allergic to Beet Root…amongst other things like grapes, kale and chard. You mention sugar beet in an earlier post. I could tolerate that but it goes against the idea that one should not have sugar when diagnosed with cancer. Why is there a difference here? I’m just trying to find the best protocol for me here in Canada. Black radish is very difficult to find, is there any alternative. Your advice on this is much appreciated.
