About us

The people responsible for this website are not medical professionals. Nor are we selling anything. We and members of our family have had cancer ourselves. One has had surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy and did not hear about alternative natural therapy until the last week of her treatment. Subsequently she searched for information concerning this nutritional therapy, and the results of that search are collected on this site.

My research on apricot kernels and vitamin B17 and metabolic therapy took me to information in the USA, where a lot of political involvement was reported. I wasn't interested in the politics, so made myself notes, just on the therapy. Over time many hundreds of people asked for copies of these notes, and eventually someone suggested I put all the information on a website. Since that time in 2000 more websites have launched in the UK on complementary treatment for cancer sufferers. Some of these are found under Recommended websites.

There are many actions that can be taken by those suffering from cancer. This site is concentration on vitamin B17 metabolic therapy which includes supporting supplements and advice. Natural therapies tend to be synergistic and supportive of each other. If you have cancer, we would encourage getting as much information as you can and, with an appropriate health professional working out a regime which would suit you.

Many people have helped themselves just using B17 and metabolic therapy, some have seen their cancer disappear just by taking apricot kernels, but we would encourage a multi-pronged approach.

Our main interest, however, is in prevention. If everyone could include apricot kernels and other amygdalin-rich foods in their diet, cut out dairy, and change to a healthier lifestyle, it may save the anguish of having cancer.
