The Grape Cure for Cancer and Detoxification
Grapes for the Grape Cure for Cancer
The Grape Cure for Cancer
There is a book by this name (The Grape Cure) that was written by Johanna Brandt in the 1920s. Amazon.com says "Johanna Brandt was a South African immigrant to America."
"She spent many years experimenting with fasting and diets before she found her grape cure. Her book on the grape cure was first published in the 1920s."
Now you can look on other websites like Quackwatch and read that this is not a proven cure for cancer. There are no proven cures for cancer.
First to prove that something cures a disease costs millions of dollars. This will not be done by a company unless it has a patent on this potential cure, first.
So no one is going to do this with a food so that anyone can sell the cure. Also there is no thing that cures a disease except the body itself.
If you feed grapes to a dead body it will not help at all, even if it died of cancer. The body is supposed to keep you healthy but if it is not allowed to do it, due to a bad lifestyle then it cannot do this.
So a big part of lifestyle is diet. Some foods encourage the growth of cancer, like meat. See this webpage on Askmen.com. Also many fruits and vegetables are supposed to inhibit the growth of cancer like cruciferous or cabbage family vegetables. See Great Foods that Fight Cancer.
So if you are being treated for cancer, you can read about these foods like watermelon or broccoli and check with your doctor to see if you can eat them. Also you can add organic grapes to your diet after getting approval from your doctor. The current medical treatments for cancer are cut, poison and burn.
Grapes contain many things (phytochemicals) that fight cancer like ellagic acid, quercetin, oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPC) or procyanidolic oligomers (PCO), originally called: pycnogenol (seeds), resveratrol (skin coloring of purple grapes), pterostilbene, gallic acid and other things.
But this is not the grape cure. The grape cure is eating grapes, drinking pure water and eating nothing else. Johanna Brandt was trying to cure her stomach cancer with fasting. She would fast and the cancer would decrease. Then she would start eating and it would increase. This kept happening many times.
I have known about this for many years but I am writing this now since I learned that a friend of mine has inoperable cervical cancer. I have articles on preventing cancer. Like there is a book A World Without Cancer: The Making of a New Cure and the Real Promise of Prevention By Margaret I. Cuomo MD. Her brother is governor of New York.
This book is about focusing on preventing cancer since Benjamin Franklin said "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." Of course doctors make no money by preventing cancer. They make money by treating someone with cancer for dozens of years.
Normally people can safely fast for a month but people with cancer are not normal people. So the idea with the grape cure is to allow the body to have enough time without other foods to cure itself. So a huge part of this is what you are not eating.
So you will not be eating any meat, dairy, HFCS (high fructose corn syrup), refined sugar, salt, fish with mercury in it, vegetables with pesticides and fungicides and many other things. All you consume is organic grapes.
Due to all the stuff going on with inorganic food now, it is important to use organic grapes. Also they say that the black grapes work the best. So here is some information right out of the book. Chapter V Directions For "The Grape Cure":
(1) Preparation. To prepare the system for the change of diet, the better practice is to fast for two or three days, drinking plenty of pure, cold water and taking an enema of lukewarm water daily with the strained juice of a lemon therein. [It still works without an enema].
By this short fast, complications may be avoided. The stomach is cleared of poisons and fermenting accumulations to a certain extent, and the grape can begin its work more quickly.
(4) Time. Starting at 8 a.m. and having a grape meal every two hours till 8 p.m. this would give seven meals daily. This is kept up for a week or two, even a month or two, in chronic cases of long standing.
(7) Enjoyment. A loathing of grapes may indicate the presence of much poison in the system and the need of another short fast.
From 8 PM to 8 AM you are only supposed to drink pure water. Also after this she has 3 more stages starting with a gradual introduction of other fruits. After eating only grapes the stomach needs to adjust to eating heavier foods. Here is a link to where you can read about the other stages. Just click on Chaper V Directions for the grape cure. Click on here (Google books).
Many people have trouble understanding what pure water is so read this article so you can understand: Drinking Water Can Cripple You or Make You Blind. Of course this is not from the pure water but what is in it when it is not pure. The purest water is distilled water or good reverse osmosis purified water.
I tried this many years ago for detoxification after I did a 5 day water fast and had too much cleansing going on. This slows down the cleansing since you are eating and digesting something. Now I do not like people telling you do something without the reasoning behind it since the reasoning may be flawed or wrong.
So I fasted for 2 days and then just ate grapes but as much as I wanted and it only came out to a few times a day. So I ate only grapes for 3 days and that worked out fine. Then I did it again but this time for 11 days and a lot of cleansing happened. This led to me being able to do fasts on only pure water. I did not follow the 2 hour rule that has no explanation behind it.
So in doing things like the above make sure to use common sense. Doing the grape cure for a few weeks is much safer than fasting for a few weeks. So the grape cure is excellent for detoxification also and the cleansing is slower than on a fast with only pure water.
Some people just want to add grapes to their diet or just take supplements of the phytochemicals in grapes. But the part of not eating anything else gives the body a chance to rest and heal itself. But the grapes slow down the cleansing so it is not as strong, since cancer weakens someone.
Also eating grapes allows you to do it much longer than not eating anything at all-- fasting. The different things in the grapes that fight cancer also aid your body in fighting the cancer. You do not need to worry about what is healthy or not healthy since you consume nothing else than organic grapes and pure water.
But just to demonstrate how little people know about diet, ask your doctor if WebMD.com says that consuming salt is worse for your health than smoking. If they do, then your health will be better if you start smoking and stop consuming salt that is in just about every processed food. It would mean eating only unprocessed food (foods without an ingredient list). WebMD.com does say that consuming salt is worse than smoking.
Before Johanna Brandt wrote this book she teamed up with a medical doctor and found 10 people that had very serious cancer and the doctors did not have much hope for them. Of course if there is hope for them then the doctor wants to get the credit for curing them. It worked on all 10 of them even though she figured that on one of them, it would not work and the cancer would kill them since they were so far gone.
So to sum it up, the idea of a fast is to give the body and its digestive system a rest. During this rest the body can then focus on detoxification and healing. Of course this is the job of the body but a person can give it too many distractions from eating all sorts of things. So by eating grapes it slows down the detoxification and gives the body some nutrients at the same time. Plus a person can do it longer than on a fast.
Eating only grapes is called a mono-diet where you only eat one kind of fruit for a while and many people have done this including Mahatma Gandhi. There are thousands of people that eat only raw plant foods and many of them eat 97% fruit. One nutritionist (Harvey Diamond) says that a good way to avoid or prevent cancer is to eat only raw plant foods for a week every 4 months.
Also if someone can adopt a diet of only raw plant foods while they have cancer then that will cause the body to really fight the cancer off. A medical doctor says on a video that they did a study introducing blood into a petri dish with cancer in it. Now when they introduce normal blood, it would have a cancer suppressing effect and this is why most people do not have cancer.
Technically everyone has cells that become cancerous but the body destroys them before they can grow much. They introduced the blood of a vegan (does not eat animal food) into the petri dish with cancer and found that it has 8 times the cancer suppressing effect as the normal blood. See Latest Science on Health Benefits of a Plant-Based or Vegan Diet for the video with the M.D. described above.
Below is a video of a guy who ate only grapes for 40 days. He says that one thing you learn from fasting or a grape fast (same as the grape cure) is to be in the present. Vitamin D is extremely important in preventing cancer so it is probably important when trying to cure cancer. So see this article to learn more about this: Are Autism and Cancer Caused by Vitamin D Deficiency.

How to Conquer Cancer, Naturally (The Grape Cure) by Johanna Brandt
Cancer is the Number Two cause of death in the U.S. A new edition of the "Grape Cure." Widely used by holistic health professionals in other countries to fight disease, often in patients with "inoperable cancer." Grapes contain a very powerful antioxidant that protects your body cells from "free radicals."
Scientists have given it the name of "proanthocyanidins," but it is not new. As far back as 1556, books on this wonderful nature cure had been published in various European languages.
Dr. Brandt was diagnosed with cancer in 1916, shortly after her mother died from cancer. Working with her own diet, fasting, etc., she began to see the relationship of the food she ate to the progression or regression of her cancer. It took nine years to achieve her healing. She discovered that a meat diet perpetuates cancer, a vegetarian diet conquers it, and that organic grapes aid healing. She helped others rid themselves of this deadly disease, left her native South Africa to bring her discovery to the U.S., and wrote this book. She shares her journey back to wellness in this small, yet remarkable book, reprinted because "the need is greater than ever for natural discoveries to reach the people."
A World Without Cancer by Margaret I Cuomo M.D. Her brother is governor of New York just like her father was.
This year, nearly 1.6 million new cases of cancer will be diagnosed and more than 1,500 people will die per day. We’ve been asked to accept the disappointing strategy to “manage cancer as a chronic disease.” We’ve allowed pharmaceutical companies to position cancer drugs that extend life by just weeks and may cost $100,000 for a single course of treatment as breakthroughs. Why have we been able to cure and prevent other killer diseases but not most cancers? Where is the bold government leadership that will transform our system from treatment to prevention? Have we forgotten the mission of the National Cancer Act of 1971, to “conquer cancer”?
Through an analysis of over 40 years of medical evidence and interviews with cancer doctors, researchers, drug company executives, and health policy advisors, Dr. Cuomo reveals frank and intriguing answers to these questions. She shows us how all cancer stakeholders—the pharmaceutical industry, government, physicians, and concerned Americans—can change the way we view and fight cancer in this country.
