Treating a cancerous tumor with lactic acid

Dramatic tumor shrinkage thanks to external and internal application

Copyright © 2020 HCN

In one of his books, Dr. med Dr. phil. Johannes Kuhl[1] quoted the following healing report written by Dr. Iv. Efimov (Orenburg) in the Russian Medical Journal of 1908:

"In 1903 an old Finnish man came to see me in the outpatient ward of Helsinki hospital whose lip cancer had spread to the neighbouring glands and tissues as well as the jaw. He had an open ulcer in the area of the submandibular gland (which gave off a putrid smell and was a casus inoperabilis[2]). He had difficulty chewing and even swallowing, and his case seemed hopeless with the end inevitable.

This Finn was hospitalised and, with his agreement, subjected to a treatment I was interested in. I started bandaging the area with a daily dressing of Acidum lacticum[3], first at a 1/4-1/2% dilution, then with an aqueous solution of 1%. Additionally I administered lactic acid internally (a solution of 4.0 to 184.0 water), at a rate of three tablespoons a day.

As early as four days into this regimen, the fetid smell disappeared and the smearing, slippery floor of the ulcer cleaned itself. Later it covered itself with healthy granulation tissue. After three weeks the tumor no longer looked as offensive at it had at the beginning and it gradually reduced in size. Starting at the edges, the ulcer began forming new epithelium.

Unfortunately I could only treat him for three weeks; due to urgent circumstances the patient had to return to work in his village (at a 100 km = 62 miles distance from the city). Upon bidding farewell, he implored me to write a prescription for the medicament I had used. I was sorry to see him leave and suggested he take 3x5 drops of Acidi lactici diluti[4] and apply a dressing with a 1% solution every day (soak a clean cloth in the solution and bind it over the tumor).

With that I lost sight of the patient. Only half a year later I happened upon him while visiting his area to recruit soldiers. I was surprised when an old Finn came walking towards me to thank me for the medicine I had prescribed.

The ulcer was about to cicatrize. The former tumor was reduced to one third of its original size. An infiltrate[5] remained in the area of the lower jaw. The infiltrate was receding from the side of his mouth and the patient was able to eat without impediment. Visibly, his joy was boundless, and to be honest, so was my surprise.

I ask my esteemed colleagues to give lactic acid treatment a try insofar as they have dealings with cancer patients.

When treating the old man I intended to induce an external healing by gradually increasing the degree of the solution, all the way to 2%, perhaps even higher. I had also contemplated to accelerate the healing by directly injecting a weak solution of lactic acid into the tumor, starting around 0.1% to be later increased. (I strongly advise against this in ALL cases and with ANY injectable drug since it would constitute a dangerous stimulus for growth and proliferation[6]. The author.)

Since there are three types of lactic acid (L-(+)-lactic acid, etc.), it's likely a good idea to try all types."

The editorial staff of the Russian Medical Journal of 1908 added:

"We are publishing this report and ask our distinguished colleagues to test the recommended procedure within the framework of a hospital treatment with inoperable cancer (also pre- and postoperatively, the Author)."

And Dr. Kuhl to add:

"After nearly twenty years of treating cancer with lactic acid, the author of this work is able to say that it is valid and has proven its suitability with many hundreds of cancer patients some of them after having received every treatment orthodox medicine had to offer and been given up on by their doctors. Every physician who knows how to fully and correctly apply lactic acid therapy, will be able to achieve success with cancer patients using this approach."
