Cancer Adjuvant Treatment
At Naturopathic Care we give our cancer patients support based on solid scientific nutritional protocols employing much of the research outlined in Cancer – The Importance of Clincial Nutrition in Prevention & Treatment.
We also use dietary approaches to starve the cancer of sugar and alkalise the patient.
We employ Lipospheric vitamin C – Larger doses of Vitamin C are especially useful for our patients fighting cancer who have been using High Dose Intravenous Vitamin C Infusion Therapy… now there is a far more cost effective and convenient method of delivery!
We employ the use of Salvestrols together with nutritional protocols specific to the type of cancer you have and your individual biochemistry..
We treat each patient holistically employing meditations specific to our patients needs.
Many people diagnosed with cancer are using some form of natural therapy, however most of them are uncertain why a particular remedy is used, how much they should take and how often they should use it, and, whether it is compatible with medical treatment.
Many cancer sufferers are not under the guidance of a fully qualified Naturopath and use natural remedies on the recommendation of friends, relatives, books or the internet. Understandably some confusion may arise.
At Naturopathic Care, Jason guides his patients using natural medicines to support their healing and recovery. He will help you find the most effective and safe natural therapies to treat the side effects of surgery, chemotherapy and radiation as required.
Naturopathic and medical treatments can be an ideal combination, gaining the best of both. Medical treatment will attack the cancer, and natural therapies will strengthen and support the mind, body and spirit, and alleviate any side effects, thus enhancing the recovery process.
It is highly recommended that you are under the personal care of a qualified Naturopath, who can monitor the use of remedies, support your individual needs and alleviate any concerns you may have. Patients who begin natural therapies as early as possible achieve better results and a quicker recovery.
Cancer and Salvestrols…
Brief Overview – The Original Research
The discovery of Salvestrols started initially with the work of research scientist Professor Dan Burke. As a faculty member of Aberdeen University medical school for nearly 20 years, he specialized in the Cytochrome P450 enzyme system.
His research group discovered that a particular Cytochrome enzyme – CYP1B1 – was present in diseased and cancerous cells but absent from healthy tissue.
Prof. Burke went on to become head of the School of Pharmacy at De Montfort University, Leicester. At De Montfort he met Professor Gerry Potter, who was Director of the Cancer Drug Discovery Group.
When Professor Burke described the CYP1B1 enzyme to him, Prof. Potter immediately saw the potential of this enzyme in developing therapies for diseased and cancerous cells.
Discovery in Nature
Initially the pair worked on developing synthetic pharmaceutical products to combat disease. But in 2002 they discovered similarly structured compounds were naturally present in many foods. Professor Potter called this new class of natural compounds Salvestrols.
How Salvestrols Work in Plants
The best way to picture Salvestrols is to understand their role in the plants that produce them. When attacked by pathogens, primarily fungi, plants defend themselves with Salvestrols. Where pathogens contain a CYP enzyme, Salvestrols are metabolised by the enzymes and die.
The Potential for Humans – Enter the CYP1B1 Enzyme
The CYP1B1 enzyme in diseased cells offers the potential to use the plants’ response and make it part of our own defences. Consuming Salvestrol-rich plants lets Salvestrols enter our diseased cells and induce their death through metabolism by CYP1B1.
Salvestrol Levels in Foods
Seeing a leaflet for local Leicester company The Herbal Apothecary led to a meeting between Professor Potter and Managing Director, Anthony Daniels.
The company’s contacts in the global food industry, the herbalist community and organic growers proved enormously important for Professor Potter’s work. Working together, they analysed thousands of fruit, vegetable and herb samples.
It emerged that Salvestrols were present in small amounts or not at all in supermarket produce, while organic samples had Salvestrols in abundance. Meaning the typical western food supply is desperately deficient in Salvestrols.
How They Work in Us
Salvestrols cannot be made in the body. They have to be supplied
through our diet and, to date, herbalists have identified Salvestrols in many organic fruits, vegetables and herbs.
Salvestrols Target Diseased and Cancerous Cells
The main feature of Salvestrols is that they target a specific enzyme called CYP1B1(pronounced “sip one, bee one”) found only in diseased cells of the human body. When the Salvestrols are metabolized by CYP1B1 it starts a series of processes that result in the death of the diseased cell (known as ‘apoptosis’ or programmed cell death). Healthy cells, containing no CYP1B1, remain and the diseased cells die.
Salvestrols actively eliminate damaged cells, helping us heal before sufficient accumulation can make us sick.
In fact the body finds Salvestrols so important they escape what’s called ‘first pass metabolism’, or the first attempts of the liver to remove them from the body. Observing how the body sought to retain these compounds, the scientists who discovered them named them Salvestrols, from the Latin word “salve”, to save.

Beyond Antioxidant Protection
Salvestrols act as a natural rescue mechanism, ensuring our cells function correctly. Antioxidants strive to protect our cells from DNA damage but are ineffective once the damage is done. Salvestrols actively eliminate damaged cells, helping us heal before sufficient accumulation can make us sick.

Salvestrol Platinum 2000 (90)
A blend of bitter orange, grape, blueberry and blackberry fruit-extracts in a hard, vegetarian, gelatin-free capsule.
Each pack contains 90 capsules.
If you face a serious health challenge, take at least 2 capsules daily (one at breakfast and one at dinner.) Many people choose to take higher amounts and there have been no reported instances of adverse side effects.
If you are dealing with a previous health issue or are simply looking to support your health, well-being and immunity, we recommended you complete a cleansing programme of 2 capsules per day for 2 months. The cleansing is required because disease can grow undetected for years. After reducing or clearing any existing problem, continue with 1 capsule per day.
SALVESTROL supplements should not be used by pregnant women and breast-feeding mothers, nor in children younger than 4 years.
Salvestrol Cream has been formulated for topical application. The cream is a colloidal suspension of advanced lipophilic salvestrols in a light base cream, designed for optimum absorption through the skin. The cream should be applied sparingly, directly to the affected area several times daily. Do not apply to an open or bleeding sore (but you can apply the cream around, but not touching, such an area). Salvestrol Cream should be taken with at least one capsule of Salvestrol Platinum. Each jar contains 30g. Available at our online store.
