An Anecdotal Tale Of Laetrile

UPDATE: 10 September 2021, Found My Mother’s Original Pamphlet from 1979

Mom mostly talks about stuff that I’d all but forgotten and my Dad adds a short word.  The tri-fold includes a list of resources, some which may be defunct.  Hope you find it helpful

Berta Foster’s Answer To Cancer, Part-2


Original Post, 23 August 2021

When my mom was 37, she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Ovarian cancer is considered a death sentence, it has a 5-year relative survival rate.

For about a year, she went the traditional route of chemotherapy, which was so powerful in killing off her good cells that she could have died from the “cure” for cancer. Plus she had 2 or 3 doses of radiation. In short order, she lost all her hair, and dropped from 125 pounds down to about 90.

Along the way, she and my dad learned about naturopathic treatments, namely Laetrile. We didn’t have the internet back then to spread the word, instead it was the mimeograph machine and mailing lists in addition to word of mouth.  So she subscribed to several newsletters.

Speaking of word of mouth, it was our Chiropractor, a graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa that first told her of the existence of natural treatments. You need to remember that back in the 70s, chiropractics was considered “woo-woo” quackery and most, if not all, insurance companies would not cover visits to the Chiropractor.  Not until the mid 80s, did attitudes change towards this. But I digress.

One newsletter group, based in Detroit, would also host monthly conferences to which I also attended, 1) to drive her there and 2) to interpret as both of my parents were deaf.

Dad couldn’t make a lot of those meetings, since as a missionary, he worked in Africa half the year, then would spend half a year at home preparing for his next trip to Africa. This odd schedule was a result of Mom’s cancer, otherwise, our family would have returned to Africa after our furlough. But months before we were planning to go back, Mom began experiencing abdominal pains and that’s when the cancer was discovered.

Skip ahead to Christmas 1977 when her AMA certified cancer doctor was giving her 3-6 months to live; she decided to quit the AMA “treatment plan” and told him since she was as good as dead, she would switch up and go 100% natural.

The doctor was so enraged (red faced and practically spitting) that he threatened to call the police and CPS to take us 5 kids away for “child endangerment/neglect”. Quitting his treatment plan was akin to suicide, in his mind.  Dad (used to be golden gloves boxer in college and trained at same gym as Joe Lewis back in the day) stood up and said; “That’s it.  Goodbye”, as Mom, Dad & I walked out. My parents then asked some church friends to take us kids for a spell… Just in case CPS showed up. But they never did.

So why the rage? The Food and Drug Administration had banned Laetrile, even though it is merely Vitamin B-17. Some doctors were even arrested and shut down for promoting this verboten “drug”. So you can imagine, Mom and Dad and/or me sneaking around to get her Laetrile like an addict looking for the next heroin fix.

What precipitated her decision to walk away was that she had just returned from Germany after seeing her family just before Christmas for possible final farewell. My grandmother did some research on her end and took her to see a German doctor about alternatives to chemo, so she received Laetrile treatment via injections and learned that there was a clinic in Tijuana Mexico which also administered Laetrile.

So when we quit her FDA/AMA approved doctor, my parents considered traveling to Tijuana, but thankfully, through our Chiropractor we found out that there was a practitioner in Pontiac, MI and another in Ohio, and she got monthly injections of Laetrile. The Pontiac doctor got shut down the following summer, can’t remember if he retired or forced to close. However, the Ohio doctor was raided and arrested about a year after we found him.  At some point, she was able to get a year’s supply which she kept in our refrigerator.

I need to add another note here, because in our family’s retelling of this tale, not enough emphasis is given to James 5:14, “Is anyone among you sick? Then he must call for the elders of the church and they are to pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord

A couple of weeks after quitting our AMA doctor, Dad was doing his daily morning devotional and came across this verse.  He had me call all the elders from two churches about this verse.  The following Saturday, the Elders from both Churches came over and stood around her bedside and prayed over her before anointing her with oil.  In conclusion, they also sang a hymn, but I can’t remember what it was, surely something suitable to the event.

Meanwhile, she was learning more and more about natural alternatives; she also learned about eating raw apricot kernels (yes, the hard, almost impossible to chew kernels) as they are a rich source of Vitamin B-17. However, one needs to be careful: too much apricot kernels can cause cyanide poisoning (similar to too much chemo can cause other kinds of toxicities). Mom ate only 2-3 after each meal; no more than 10 kernels a day. She also radically changed her diet so that she ate mostly fresh foods. She also grew wheat germ in her kitchen year round to be consumed, once the shoots were about an inch tall.  In the first year, she ate a mostly vegetarian diet. In the second year of treatment, she slowly added chicken and fish. As she got stronger and stronger, she added red meats back to her diet, but in small quantities, so she wouldn’t overwork her body, but it took several more years before she functionally regained all of her strength.

Anyhoo, 3 months after she quit the doctor, she took a test and they couldn’t find any trace of cancer. Must be a bad test, right? So they immediately took another test.  Still negative.  She was already strong enough a month later for us to travel to Germany to have a family reunion for her father’s 94th birthday, shortly before he passed from pneumonia.

Interesting thing about Opa, before going off to war in 1916, he promised his mother he would never drink alcohol nor take any pharmaceuticals. Years later he suffered a head injury from a falling brick during a bombing raid and doctors recommended anesthesia so they could operate on him to save his eyesight. He refused and became permanently blind as a result. When he suffered pneumonia after his 94th birthday, he refused to take any drugs to treat it. That’s how he rolled.

So about every 6 months, she’d test and still tested negative for cancer. She was working on her associates in business management, and in her final semester before being stricken and having to drop out. About 2 years after testing negative, she felt strong enough to go back to school and finish the 4 or 5 remaining courses to get her degree.  After about 4 or 5 years, she was over cancer as far as she was concerned and didn’t bother to test for it anymore.

Here is Mom, back in Germany for a family reunion to celebrate my grandmother’s 80th birthday in 1986; left to right, Omi, Mom, one of her aunts photobombing, LOL, and her sister and brother. She lost her blonde hair which grew back brown, but also regained her weight and strength. Mom lived another 40 years, only to die of old age, having survived cancer, heart attack at 55 from overwork (she’s a workaholic) and several strokes. She lived to see 14 grandchildren and 1 great-grandchild.

Thus ends my “anecdote”.


Why we need devolution of this corrupt medical industry

Our government to this day is still fact-checking Laetrile,

From their Q&A
#5 Have any side effects or risks been reported from laetrile?  The side effects of laetrile treatment include the following:

  • Nausea and vomiting.
  • Headache.
  • Dizziness.
  • Blue color of the skin caused by a lack of oxygen in the blood.
  • Liver damage.
  • Very low blood pressure.
  • Droopy upper eyelid.
  • Trouble walking caused by damaged nerves.
  • Fever.
  • Confusion.
  • Coma.
  • Death.

Oddly, most of these symptoms are exactly the same as from Chemotherapy/Radiation. As for lack of oxygen, that is most likely the side effect of too much cyanide. Also, Laetrile isn’t only made in Mexico. would like you to believe that “No controlled clinical trials (trials that compare groups of patients who receive the new treatment to groups who do not) of laetrile have been reported.” and that “Anecdotal reports and case reports have not shown laetrile to be an effective treatment for cancer… An expert panel concluded that 2 of 67 patients had complete responses and 4 had a decrease in tumor size.


They didn’t get the sampling they needed because it was all driven underground.  No doctor was ever going to come forward with his or her documentation for fear of being arrested and the federal goons going after patients.  The so-called expert panel was destined to “flunk” Laetrile, just as we have seen with several studies debunking the efficacy of HCQ.

Just in the Detroit newsletter group, scores of patients were cured with zero trace of cancer, whether it be Lung, Pancreas, Ovarian etc after treatment, usually within a year.

If you would like to learn more truths about Laetrile, here are a couple of links:

Cancer Clinics in Mexico – The Weston A. Price Foundation (

What is Laetrile Therapy? | Immunity Therapy Center

So this is why I never believed a word coming out of the AMA, FDA nor CDC since the late 70s and here we are nearly 50 years later and they still lie to us.  Of course, we also now know that wonder drug HCQ cures cancer as well.


How The Suppression Of Natural Remedies Came About…

How John D Rockefeller Medicine killed Natural Cures and Alternative Medicine / Herbal Medicines, posted by Newest Documentaries

This newest documentary is about how John D. Rockefeller and his family created modern medicine that destroyed natural cures, herbal medicines and alternative medicine. There is a lot of politics and money involved behind our modern medical system. It all started with John D. Rockefeller who was an oil magnate, a robber baron, America’s first billionaire, and a natural born monopolist. By the start of 20th century, Rockefeller controlled 90% of all oil refineries and petrochemicals. At the same time, around 1900, scientists discovered “petrochemicals” and the ability to create a large variety of chemicals compounds from oil. During this time, scientists were doing groundbreaking work to understand the effects of different chemical compounds on human life and health.

And this was a wonderful opportunity for John D. Rockefeller and his family to monopolize the oil, chemical and the medical industries at the same time! The best thing about petrochemicals was that everything could be patented and sold for high profits.

But there was one problem with Rockefeller’s plan for the medical industry – natural and herbal medicine was very popular in America at that time. Almost half the doctors and medical colleges in the United States were practicing holistic medicine, using knowledge from Europe and Native Americans.

Rockefeller, the monopolist, had to figure out a way to get rid of his biggest competition. He joined his buddy Andrew Carnegie and devised a scheme. From the prestigious Carnegie Foundation, they sent a man named Abraham Flexner to travel around the country and report on the status of medical education, colleges and hospitals around the country.
This report led to the Flexner Report, which gave birth to the modern medicine. The Flexner report concluded that all the natural healing modalities being practiced for hundreds of years were “unscientific quackery”.

The report talked about the need for revamping and centralizing the medical education and institutions. Based on this report, more than half of all medical colleges were soon closed. Homeopathy and natural medicines were mocked and demonized; and doctors were even jailed.

To help with the transition and change the minds of other doctors and scientists, Rockefeller gave more than $100 million to colleges, hospitals and founded a philanthropic front group called “General Education Board” (GEB). This is the classic carrot and stick approach. In a very short time, medical colleges were all streamlined and homogenized. All the students were learning the same thing, and medicine was all about using patented drugs.

Scientists received huge grants to study how plants cured diseases, but their goal was to first identify which chemicals in the plant were effective, and then recreate a similar chemical – but not identical – in the lab that could be patented. A pill for an ill became the mantra for modern medicine.

Today, his corporations own almost 50% medical business around the world.

Now contrast the truth and lies as presented by Big Pharma hack, Dr Nathalia Holt, “How Lies Launch Modern Medicine”, TEDxCapeMay

Note, when she discusses the history of Chemotherapy as starting in mid-50s and then boosted by American Cancer Society by 1958; over the scathing rejection by scientists of the day, but then $$$ and marketing ruled the roost. Interestingly enough, also in the mid 50s, HCQ was being explored by scientists.

I can’t remember who it was, but I’m pretty sure it was YouTuber JustInformed Talk, about 2 or 3 years ago, who showed a research paper from the 1950s, wherein HCQ & Chlorquinine (CQ), derived from Wormwood, was recognized as directly attacking cancer cells which were rich in iron (FeFe), while ignoring the healthy cells. It did so by turning the excess iron into free radicals which destroyed the afflicted cells and then eventually the excess iron was flushed out of the body.

Related to that 1950s paper in the video was the observation that Adrenchrome users are also rich in FeFe within their bloodstream, so when Wormwood attacks the blood, the pain is excruciating, before dying as blood cells are destroyed.

I downloaded that paper, but unfortunately, lost it when upgrading my phone. Of course, trying to find that paper online, it seems to have disappeared.  If anyone knows what I’m talking about and can link me to that paper, I would really appreciate it.

Did you know that that the King James Bible mentions Wormwood 7 times in the Old Testament and only once in the New Testament?

Deut 29:18; Prov 5:4; Jer 9:15; Jer 23:15; Lam 3:15; Lam 3:19; Amos 5:7

Rev 8:11 “And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.


HCQ & Ivermectin Info

Here’s a collection of screenshots concerning HCQ and various ailments that can be cured.  Ivermectin works pretty much the same way, attacking cancer and other ailments.  Curatives, not treatments.

If you or anyone is interested in getting a prescription to HCQ, Ivermectin or other prophylactics/cures, contact American Frontline Doctors and/or SpeakWithAnMD, which I just found out that they have teamed up together.  From what I’m hearing, you can get a year’s prescription for about $90, not including consultation with a doctor and they ship anywhere in the 50 States.
