Chemotherapy Detox Using Natural Products

The decision to accept chemotherapy or not is a personal decision that each person needs to make.  At the Budwig Center we do not offer any advice on this matter, however if someone does accept chemotherapy, we have a program in place to help remove the residual chemical toxins from the chemotherapy and also rebuild the immune system.

8 Ways to Detox Chemotherapy

Broccoli Sprouts

Sulforaphane as found in abundance in Broccoli sprouts is an excellent anti cancer and immune boosting food. Sulforaphane has proven to be a strong cancer inhibitor, especially of Breast Cancer. You can consume broccoli as is or even better in the form of broccoli sprouts or in the form of a supplement. [1]

Transfer Factors 


When humans and other mammals are born, the first nourishment that the mother breast feeds the new-born is not milk but a clear liquid called Colostrum.  Transfer Factors are derived from this Colostrum. 

Transfer Factors are powerful immune system activators that have the ability to boost the immune system in an entirely different way. They strengthen an underachieving immune system or bring the overactive immune system into balance. Transfer Factor molecules are extracted from bovine colostrum and chicken egg yolk sources. These molecules contain antigen information which educates, enhances, and helps maintain immune system balance. Joe Ramaekers, DVM  said: “This is truly the missing link in the nutritional approach to preventive medicine”.  We all know that our immune system is a miracle system; however it still takes time to react to viruses, bacteria, and abnormal cell mutations.  What if we could speed up that process?  That is what Transfer Factors do.  They help our body to be able to immediately recognize and attack invading microorganisms so that we avoid many common illnesses.


Curcumin helps block the formation of new tumors as well as preventing cancer from spreading to other parts of the body. We must keep in mind that all our healthy cells have a natural programmed time limit before they are replaced by new cells. However, cancer cells have this sinister ability to keep regenerating themselves and it seems that this dangerous scenario is hard to stop.  That’s where the curcumin comes into play as it is been shown to force the cancer cells to die a natural death. In the recent study done in China with the human clinical trial using cancer patients, they found that curcumin cause the cancer cells to die a natural death when introduced to the program. [2]

Chlorella and Wheat Grass

In addition to the toxins left in the body from chemotherapy, there are now over 84,000 chemicals being used in daily foods and products annually. According to the Environmental Working Group (EWG) the average US woman uses 12 personal care products and/or cosmetics a day, containing 168 different chemicals. This is particularly shocking when you keep in mind that almost 13,000 chemicals are used in cosmetics alone, and only about 10% have been evaluated for safety.

Therefore we all need to supplement our diet with Chlorella, which is a powerful detoxifying green algae that’s remained virtually unchanged over 2 billion years providing precious beneficial nutrients and contains more chlorophyll than any other plant! Its special detoxification properties allow it to bind to nasties such as heavy metals, pesticide residues and other harmful chemicals to carry them out of your body. [3] Wheat Grass is also an excellent detox food that can be added to smoothies and juices.


According to research done by Dr. Nobuhiro Yoshimizu, author of the book The Fourth Treatment for Medical Refugees, raising your body temp by just one degree can boost your immune system by 40%. 

Hyperthermia artificially creates heat and thus initiates a fever-like state, causing an intense, sustained elevation in core body temperature, which enhances the immune system and therefore activates a natural self-healing process in the body. The Greek physician and philosopher, Parmenides, 540-480 BC said;“Give me the power to create fever, and I will cure all diseases.”

Modern hyperthermia has been around for more than 100 years starting in the 1900s, when the American physician, Dr. William Coley, began using fever-causing agents in the treatment of cancer with considerable success.In 1927, Julius Wagner-Jauregg received the Nobel Prize in medicine for work involving the therapeutic application of hyperthermia. In July 2013, The Lancet Oncology published an article on the beneficial effects of hyperthermia (heat therapy)


A team of clinicians headed by Rüdiger Wessalowski, MD of the University of Düsseldorf, showed that conventional treatment that included deep-tissue heating produced better results than generally achieved with surgery, radiation and/or chemotherapy alone [4].

Hydrogen Inhalation Therapy

Because hydrogen is so small it can diffuse freely across these membranes, even the blood-brain barrier which is important when treating brain tumors. Also, this is so important because it’s INSIDE the cell where hydrogen performs its magic.

 Hydrogen seems to work at the nuclear gene transcription level, telling our cells to start pumping out more powerful free radical scavengers, removing and destroying dangerous cancer cells and turning them into H20 (water) which is then naturally eliminated by the body. 

 Hydrogen anti-oxidation is much more powerful than common antioxidants such as vitamin C, carrot, lecithin etc.  200ml hydrogen Water has same antioxidant level as 100 fresh lemons. The molecular hydrogen is the lightest molecule in the universe.

For reference, vitamin C (176.2 g/mole) weighs 88 times more than hydrogen gas (2 g/mole). Therefore, hydrogen water at a concentration of 1.6 mg/L would have more “antioxidant” molecules than 100 mg of vitamin C, as there are more total molecules in 1.6 mg of hydrogen compared 100 mg of vitamin C. Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe, constituting nearly 75% of the universe’s mass.  [6]

Fruit, Vegetable, Tea and Soup Program

Fruits offer excellent cleansing and detoxification.  Juices are like a ‘transfusion of health.’”  Some holistic doctors even claim that 95% of their patients were completely well after taking detox formulas for 2 weeks, followed by a 3-to-6-week fruit and vegetable juicing program. Juice fasting is the answer because it allows your body to rest – and it lets your body choose what it wants to heal.  If you just keep cramming food down your mouth, you’ll just get more tired. Your body must digest large amounts of food, and it’s the opposite of what you should do when you’re not well. [5]


AHCC is especially recommended for chemotherapy patients and is to be included in daily diet.  Chemotherapy is very aggressive on the body and amongst other effects, significantly runs down the immune system.  We rely on the help of these types of compounds to strengthen our immune system in order to better assimilate chemotherapy whilst also reducing the adverse effects to our body.


(Astragalus membranaceous) – Reduces side effects of chemotherapy and radiation. Astragalus membranaceous is another natural product recommended by the Budwig Centre, suitable for patients going through chemotherapy or radiotherapy. This natural supplement is outstanding for the following reasons:

  • Stimulates the immune system.
  • Benefits liver function. It can also be used on Hepatitis patients

AHCC is an immuno-stimulant nutritional supplement used worldwide, with very positive results.

Regain your health as soon as possible by flushing out the toxins and boosting your immune system with broccoli, chlorella, Transfer Factors, Hydrogen Inhalation, Hyperthermia, AHCC, Astralagus and Juice Therapy.  To find out how the Budwig Center can help you send us an email at:
