Repurposed Drugs – Another Option in Cancer Treatment

Very early on after my cancer diagnosis, I read an incredible book by Jane McLelland, called How To Starve Cancer that marked a defining moment in my cancer journey and the way I looked at treatment. (link to website on the “Useful Links” page) Jane used a combination of diet, supplements and repurposed drugs resulting in her beating a terminal cancer diagnosis.

It was because of this book, that I first became aware of repurposed drugs and their benefits for people with cancer. Repurposed drugs are those prescribed to treat a different illness/disease but are known to have benefits for another. Sadly, and in my opinion, wrongly, these drugs are not prescribed for cancer patients despite the well documented anti-cancer effects, as there are no financial gains for the large pharmaceutical companies who have produced them (I’ll leave you to look into the politics of it all)

Care Oncology Clinic based in Harley Street, London, was born to bridge this gap. During my research into cancer treatments and especially after reading of so many cancer patients successes with the protocol, I knew this was something I wanted to implement in my cancer treatment.

How Does The Protocol Work On Cancer Cells?

The four prescribed drugs target the metabolism of cancer, depriving cells of the fuel and nutrients needed to grow and spread further.

The Care Oncology Clinic Protocol consists of 4 drugs:

Metformin – used to treat type II diabetes

Doxycycline – antibiotic

Mebendazole – worming agent

Atorvastatin – lowers cholesterol

I had always intended to go to Care Oncology Clinic, never doubting the potential effects their protocol could have for me, but as I had seen such success with the chemotherapy, supplements, dietary and lifestyle changes I had made, became somewhat lackadaisical with including this into my treatment.

However, as I have mentioned in my last couple of posts, my 3 month break from chemotherapy hasn’t gone quite how I envisaged so far, experiencing pain, fatigue, and a loss of appetite, leaving me feeling overwhelmed with fear.

I had to do more in order to get back some level of control again.

After sending various medical reports and information off to them, I had my initial consultation Thursday, via Zoom, with a wonderful oncologist, who, reassuringly, has a strong background in mainstream oncology. He was so friendly, incredibly informative in regards to the science behind the protocol, and most importantly (for me, anyway) extremely positive.

Once the consultation was over, I left the meeting feeling really encouraged that it was the right decision to access their support.

The whole process is incredibly fast and I am expecting the drugs to be delivered Monday.

I have also found other areas positively affected as a result of their involvement in my care (and this is BEFORE i’ve even got started!) My appetite has increased (thankfully), my sleep has improved and my determination well and truly restored.

As I am not always the best at explaining things, and for more information, I thought it worth adding this link to Care Oncology Clinic:

Love and strength,
