"TERMINAL" CANCER PATIENTS OVERCOME GRIM PREDICTIONS
By: Eric T. Richter
Armed with psycho-neuroimmunology and a powerful vaccine created from a
patient's own blood and cancer cells, a Mexican doctor claims an 80 to 85
percent success rate in curing even "terminal" cases of cancer.
Geronimo Rubio, M.D.., is a warm, empathetic doctor who comes from a family
of healers. Because of his Indian heritage, it is within his nature to
incorporate herbs and holistic therapies alongside orthodox medical
treatments at Saint Joseph Hospital in La Mesa, just a few miles south of
the border in Mexico. Fully licensed and certificated by the Mexican Health
Department, the hospital is affiliated with American Metabolic Institute,
its administrative arm located in an upscale office building in Bonita.
Most of the patients Dr. Rubio sees are rejects from American doctors who
have Stage 4 cancer, so advanced there is nothing that can be done for them
with American medicine.
"They've been told to go home and make their will," Dr. Rubio said. Yet
despite the grim predictions of his American counterparts, Dr. Rubio says
some of his patients, including those who had pancreatic, brain and kidney
cancer, are still alive 10 years after his controversial but apparently
So, what's the secret of Dr. Rubio's success where others have woefully
failed in the United States, where chemotherapy, surgery and radiation are
some of the few treatment options that are legal for cancer?
"The key is immunotherapy," Dr. Rubio explained. "We use specific vaccines
to recognize the cancer and destroy the cancer." These specific vaccines
developed by Dr. Rubio impart an intelligence to the patient's own immune
system, which becomes stimulated to seek out and destroy the cancer.
Part of the problem has been that in the cancer patient, the immune system
cannot "see" the tumor cells. Through a biopsy procedure, Dr. Rubio
extracts a portion of the tumor, which is then cultured 'in vitro' in the
laboratory. He then introduces white blood cells from the patients' own
body to the living mass of tumor cells, which without their protective
protein encapsulation are attacked as a foreign body.
The white blood cells, thus educated, are reinjected into the patients'
body as the specific vaccine, and within 14 to 21 days are able through RNA
transference, to direct fellow lymphocytes to seek out, destroy and conquer
the cancer. "Our goal is to give the 'memory' of the tumor to the white
blood cells to attack," said Dr. Rubio. "What is more dynamic than the
immune system, and using our own body to fight the disease?"
In addition to the vaccine therapies, orthodox cancer therapies and a
number of holistic therapies are incorporated into an individualized,
multi-disciplinary treatment program. The negative effects of chemotherapy
and radiation are counteracted through the use of special detox baths and
diets. A cleansing program may include colonics, chelation, sauna and clay
therapies, along with a purer diet of fresh organic vegetables and juices,
herbal teas, and natural foods free of yeast, sugar, white flour and dairy
Dr. Rubio incorporates psycho-neuroimmunology to help the patient battle
the disease as well. A counseling program incorporates emotional and
positive attitude therapy. "Emotion is the key," Dr. Rubio said. "The
patient has to accept the tumor, but be strong enough to release it out of
Costs for the program, which typically lasts from one to five weeks, run 40
to 70 percent less than programs in the United States, according to William
Fry, American Metabolic Institute's director. Many procedures are fully
reimbursable through medical insurance. What isn't covered for the
alternative health treatments is an out-of-pocket expense.
Despite his apparent success where others have failed, Dr. Rubio is
reluctant to criticize his American counterparts or their methods. "Our
goal is to respect everybody and whatever works," he said. "We're very open
and honest and want success for the patient."
Geronimo Rubio, M.D., received his degree from the University of Autonoma
de Baja, California Medical School in Mexico. During his studies at the
university he did research in the departments of physiology, biochemistry,
bacteriology and parasitology.

REVERSING CANCER SUCCESSFULLY
By Geronimo Rubio, M.D.
Physicians at American Metabolic Institute use up to 150 different nontoxic
medications and therapies to teach the immune system to eliminate cancer.
To successfully reverse cancer, you must teach the patient's immune system
how to respond effectively to the cancerous cells, says Geronimo Rubio,
M.D., medical director of the American Metabolic Institute. This may sound
obvious but when the body has a cancer process under way, clearly the
immune system has become dysfunctional and is either unable or has
forgotten how to eliminate the foreign cells.
Dr. Rubio administers his 16-bed facility for treating cancer in La Mesa,
Mexico, a few miles south of San Diego, California. Typically, patients
stay for 3 to 5 weeks while they receive treatments from a diverse roster
of alternative modalities, from enzymes to special vaccines, oxygen therapy
to visualizations, physiotherapy to energy frequencies. Dr. Rubio draws
upon 150 different medications in developing his individual treatment
plans. American Metabolic's small inpatient population enables Dr. Rubio's
staff to concentrate their medical attention on patients virtually around
According to statistics compiled by American Metabolic Institute, based on
their clinical work since its founding in 1983, their success rate in
reversing stage III and IV cancers is 65% to 75%, but when they are able to
work with cancers t an earlier phase of development, such as stages I and
II, their reversal rate is about 80%, says Dr. Rubio. "If the patient
follows the program, the patient's system will respond favorably to the
treatment," he adds.
BLOOD TESTS AND DIET
American Metabolic performs standard blood tests and CAT scan, MRI, and
ultrasound evaluations of each patient as needed. Using a darkfield
microscope, Dr. Rubio can examine a sample of the patient's live blood for
signs of toxicity and immune dysfunction. A toxic liver, for example, will
be indicated by dark specs amidst the living red blood cells under the
microscope. Physicians at American Metabolic are particularly concerned with
determining the patient's blood type. That is because the dietary program
is coordinated with the patient's specific blood profile.
For example, a patient with type O blood needs to eat some meat regularly
to build strong blood and may become anemic on a vegetarian diet, says Dr.
Rubio. These patients are advised to eat organically raised chicken or
shark at least 3 times weekly. A patient with type A or B blood does not
require animal protein and may draw their protein from vegetable sources
instead, such as grains and soybeans. "This is a more specific way of
prescribing a diet and does not distress the patient with an inappropriate
eating plan," Dr. Rubio explains.
If the patient has enough energy reserves, they undergo a 3-day limited
fast, consuming only fresh vegetable juices, in order to cleanse the body.
On day 4, the patient has vegetable broth; on day 5, they start their blood
type-specific diet. For patients who have lost too much weight already and
must receive some nourishment through intravenous infusion during the 3-day
fast, explains Dr. Rubio.
Every cancer patient has a body overloaded with toxins derived from foods,
previous conventional medical procedures, and the environment, says Dr.
Rubio. Hence, American Metabolic places strong emphasis on detoxifying each
patient. In addition, once the immune system is stimulated to start
destroying the cancer, the dead cancer cells must be safely removed from the
body. Sources of toxicity often include mercury amalgam dental fillings,
says Dr. Rubio. "We find these can leak mercury and diminish the immune
system. A patient who has measurable mercury levels in the body must have it
removed for the immune system to function properly." Almost always, this
involves carefully removing mercury fillings, which American Metabolic
handles on sight.
Dr. Rubio relies on a series of prepared oral formulas for cleansing
different organs. For example, Kidney Rinse combines comfrey, kidney beans,
cranberry powder, kelp, and other natural substances to help flush toxins
out of the kidneys. There is also a Colonic Rinse (with bentonite powder,
psyllium husk, citrus pectin, diatomaceous earth, and various herbs) and a
Liver Rinse. Patients take Acidophilus (3 capsules daily) to recolonize the
intestines with "friendly" bacteria. Dr. Rubio also dispenses a preparation
called Perfect 7 (an herbal laxative containing plantago and psyllium) to
heighten intestinal waste elimination.
American Metabolic administers enemas using shark, bovine, chicken, or
snake cartilage, often in combination and up to a total of 15g per enema.
When these substances are introduced intravenously, the body can handle a
dosage of up to 150g, says Dr. Rubio. Biochemically speaking, a cartilage
component called mucopolysaccharide helps block the tumor from growing and
spreading. Dr. Rubio prefers the snake cartilage for patients with
lymphomas, or cancers of the lymph system. For patients with cancer in their
digestive systems, such as stomach, pancreas, or colon, Dr. Rubio adds
colostrum (mother's milk produced immediately after an infant's birth -- in
this case, from cows) to the cartilage enema. Enemas containing medicinal
extracts of maitake and shiitake mushrooms as well as the more standard
coffee enema are also being used.
Various botanical supplements are given to help cleanse the patient's
liver, lungs, skin, and intestines, says Dr. Rubio. For example, Cascara
sagrada is given for the intestines, while licorice root, lemon, and corn
silk are for the kidneys, and pau d'arco helps the immune system. Juices
freshly made from celery, lettuce, green pepper, carrot, cactus, pineapple,
or beet are taken daily, sometime hourly. Dr. Rubio also relies on herbs
native to Mexico such as cuachalalate and candurango.
Dr. Rubio frequently prescribes digestive enzymes to help remove the
protective coating around cancer cells that otherwise enables them to avoid
being destroyed by the immune system. In most cancer patients, enzymes
required for food digestion are usually deficient, leading both to
nutritional shortfalls and intestinal toxicity. Dr. Rubio generally
recommends German-made Wobenzym N which contains pancreatin, trypsin,
papain, and other key enzymes. A typical dose is 2 tablets before each
INTRAVENOUS NUTRIENTS .
Dr. Rubio administers a range of high-dose nutritional supplements and
antioxidants such as selenium, zinc, chromium, copper, magnesium, and
vitamins A, B, C, D, E, and K, usually by intravenously infusion. Among
these daily nutrients, vitamin A is given at a dosage of 100,000 IU,
vitamin C at 150 g, and pycnogenol (an antioxidant from Maritime pine bark
or grape seed) at 1500 mg. OXYGEN THERAPY. Research has proven that cancer
cells grow best in the absence of oxygen and that oxygen, therefore, is
deadly for tumors. Dr. Rubio administers oxygen mixed with geranium (a
natural element believed to enhance oxygen supplies) through the patient's
nose (3 times daily, 10 minutes per session) to raise body oxygen levels.
Patients receive ozone (a variant of oxygen) through a self-contained ozone
chamber, or rectally, often 3 times daily for up to 20 minutes per session.
A central feature of Dr. Rubio's cancer approach is to culture a special
immune-boosting vaccine from the patient's own blood and cancer cells. "All
cancer patients need this cancer vaccine because it reeducates the immune
system to recognize cancer that previously disguised itself." The nontoxic
medications, including herbs, minerals, vitamins, oxygen therapies, and
detoxification, all prepare the cancer patient's system for handling the
vaccine, Dr. Rubio explains. First, he extracts a small cell sample of the
cancer by needle biopsy and removes the cancer cell coating that blocks
recognition by the immune system. Second, Dr. Rubio allows the tumor to
grow outside the patient in a laboratory container; then he introduces
living white blood cells from the patient into the tumor culture where they
coexist for 14-21 days. In the case where a cancer tissue sample cannot be
extracted, such as in the brain, Dr. Rubio collects tumor antigens (protein
samples of the cancer) from the blood and use them instead. The goal is to
use this small-scale setting to "train" the patient's immune cells to
recognize the cancer cells and "learn" how to destroy them. After the
culturing process, the white blood cells are extracted from the patient's
body as an immune building vaccine. As Dr. Rubio explains, "These white
blood cells send biochemical 'messages' to the patient's bone marrow (where
such cells are made) to stimulate it to produce the same type of immune
cells capable of recognizing cancer." The patients receive the vaccine by
injection once weekly for the 3-5 weeks they reside at the hospital.
Afterwards, they must return once every 3 months for a follow up injection
for the next 2 years, then twice yearly for another 3 years.
OTHER NATURAL ANTI-CANCER AGENTS.
Among the 150 anticancer medications Dr. Rubio has at his disposal, are
concentrated shark liver oil and intravenously delivered laetrile
(amygdalin, from apricot kernels). Both have clinically and scientifically
proven anticancer effects. Dr. Rubio also uses several innovative medicines
including clodronate (dichloromethylene bisphosphonate) which is
effectively effective against bone cancer.
RIFE FREQUENCY GENERATOR.
In the 1930's, American medical inventor Raymond Royal Rife developed a
device that could transmit specific electronic signals to deactivate or
destroy living organisms such as pathogens, bacteria, and cancers. Rife's
concept was that if you match the energy signal (frequency or rate of
vibration) of a cancer cell, for example, with an electronically
transmitted frequency, it will cause the cancer cell to explode from an
excess of energy. Dr. Rubio's staff regularly use the Rife generator with
their cancer patients.
It is vital to attend to the thoughts and emotions of the cancer patient and
to encourage them to develop a strong positive attitude about their eventual
success in reversing cancer, says Dr. Rubio. A staff psychologist works
daily with patients in putting their minds creatively to work in dissolving
their tumors through guided mental imagery in which they visualize their
immune system destroying cancer cells. "This is an important technique and
patients who use it respond better to all the other therapies we provide,"
says Dr. Rubio.
LOW - DOSE RADIATION.
"Radiation therapy will not cure the cancer but it will sometimes slow down
the process to give us time for the alternative therapies to work," says
Dr. Rubio. Here a very low dose of radiation -- typically, 1000 rads
compared to a normal protocol of 5000 rads -- will encapsulate the tumor.
This can be strategically valuable if the tumor is located on a bone and is
progressively weakening the bone structure, leaving it prone to fracture,
or if it is located in the chest wall or lungs and is putting a
life-threatening amount of pressure on vital blood vessels. Immediately
following the low-dose radiation therapy, Dr. Rubio employs several
procedures to minimize the otherwise inevitable damage to the immune system.
First, a poultice made of fresh raw cabbage is placed at the external site
of radiation to draw out the toxins. Second, the patient is immersed in a
whole-body bath containing baking soda, sea salt, and ginger to remove
radiation from the body.
