The cancer industry is worth trillions of dollars annually, which is why experts which claim that the condition can be cured naturally are instantly discredited. According to these experts, toxic interventions such as chemo and radiation boost the long-term survival chances but often destroy healthy tissue which leads to the death of the patient.

The cancer industry lies about this fact – they say that chemotherapy targets the cancer cells only which is a big lie. Poison is poison and it doesn’t discriminate – once it enters your body, it wreaks havoc on everything that stands in its way.

Dr. Dave Mihailovic is a naturopathic doctor who specializes in cancer prevention and a natural approach towards healing the disease. “No chemotherapy drug has ever actually cured or resolved the underlying causes of cancer. Even what mainstream medicine considers “successful” chemotherapy treatments are only managing symptoms, usually at the cost of interfering with other precious physiological functions in patients that will cause side effects down the road,” he says.

Many people are unaware that chemo destroys healthy cells as well, and stimulates them to produce a protein that supports tumor growth. Shocking, right? It doesn’t stop there! The standard treatment for cancer also makes tumors respond well in the start, only to continue with rapid growth and resistance to further chemotherapy.

The story of Stan Rutner

Barb and Stan Rutner have been living together for the past 59 years. They have fought the deadly disease on several occasions – Stan was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma 25 years ago, while Barb defeated breast cancer twice.” I just thought I had a cold, flu, type thing. That was it . . . I wasn’t thinking cancer at all,” Stan remembers.

After 6 months of chemo, Stan’s cancer was in remission by 1989. Meanwhile, Stan’s life moved on – he forgot about the disease and didn’t think it would be back. However, in 2011 he was diagnosed with lung cancer after he couldn’t defeat a seemingly simple cough for a while. Stan’s cancer has also metastasized to the brain, which made him feel depressed. ‘You’re in deep shit.’ Stan explained. “Yeah, he didn’t sugar coat it at all.”

Stan’s Quality of life and Health Rapidily Declined

The chemotherapy worsened Stan’s condition – he was riddled with weight loss and nausea, while feeling unable to stand up. “After that he was wiped out. He was very thin. So we finished radiation to his brain on June 25, and on July 13 he entered the hospital for the first time with radiation pneumonitis (inflammation of the lungs due to radiation therapy), so pneumonia. There were three hospital visits during that time, and on the third they kept him for a week and started him on oxygen 24/7. And then he went into palliative care,” Barb recalls. Stan’s doctors gave him only a couple of months to live.

The Rutners did everything they could to improve Stan’s condition – they tried Reiki treatments which helped Barb before, but did nothing for Stan. That’s when their daughter, Corrine, and her husband John started researching cannabis as a potential treatment for Stan.

“Corinne and John were becoming interested in medicinal marijuana but we were concerned that Stan was wasting away. He had lost so much weight and so we were anxious to get his appetite improved and help him with the nausea. So Corinne suggested daytime cannabis capsule infused with coconut oil; they’re yellow capsules that he started taking. He started taking those in early November of 2011 and in the beginning, he took about a third of a capsule in the morning, and it was about a week or two later that he was able to give up the extra oxygen that he had had 24/7,” Barb explains.

Stan was ready to give the treatment a try. “No hesitation at all. Here I’m dying and getting nothing to change the course of things and so this thing has a pretty good track record in—what do you call it—in a non-medical world, so hey let’s try it. Got nothing to lose,” he says.

The incredible turnaround

After just a couple of weeks with the treatment, Stan felt significantly better. He gained weight, his sleep improved and he felt stronger. He even ditched his oxygen tank and started exercising! After several months, he went for an MRI. “On January 27, 2013 we received the results of Stan’s brain MRI in an email from his oncologist, stating simply: “IMPRESSION: No evidence of recurrent disease.” The lung cancer that had metastasized to his brain in the summer of 2011 (and nearly taken his life) was GONE! The doctor calls him a miracle man. We are deeply grateful to his “team” of doctors, friends and family, but we’ll always believe that cannabis turned the tide,” Barb says.

“Dad never thought that he would make it to that day but low and behold, he continued on the Cannabis Oil and is STILL in remission!” Corrine explains happily.
