Repurposed drugs are drugs that are being used for cancer that already existed for another purpose. They might have been designed for diabetes, or as anti-malarial’s, or statins, but they have been found to have a purpose in starving cancer.
If you decide to take repurposed drugs, this doesn’t mean you have to stop having your NHS drugs. Thats not the idea. The point is to add them into your treatment plan as a extra, which can work in synergy with diet and supplements to starve your cancer.
If you would like to understand more about how repurposed drugs starve cancer, here are some resources that I used to understand it better:
- How to Starve Cancer, by Jane McLelland
- Metformin increasing survival rates of cancer patients with diabetes and cancer – study
- Queen Mary University research about the use of aspirin for cancer – study
- The role of statins in cancer therapy – study
- Doxycycline, Azithromycin and Vitamin C as a potent combination for targeting cancer stem cells – study
You can also watch our documentary, particularly the first section which interviews experts about repurposed drugs including Professor Michael Lisanti (Salford University), Dr Ndaba Mazibuko (Care Oncology Clinic) and Prof Jack Cuzick (Queen Mary University).
Since January 2019, I have been taking repurposed drugs prescribed by the Care Oncology Clinic (COC) in London. I take four drugs alongside NHS care which are all off-patent and therefore very cheap. They cost about £20 per month.
The drugs I take from the Care Oncology Clinic are:
The reason I go to a clinic for this is because it allows them to monitor my dosages and adjust them accordingly. There is also a COC in the United States.
I also take three other drugs on a private prescription which I have added over the last two years, based on the research I have found. These are:
- Melatonin – this is commonly used to help people sleep. Its available without a prescription in the US but you do need one in the UK.
- LDN low dose Naltrexone
