Last updated date: 00:47:58 12-05-2016
Name: Kelley Eidem Length of Time with Disease:   2 weeks
Age Cured:  48  -   Gender:  male Length of Time in Remission:   Approximately 18 years
Country Healed in:  United States, Florida Primary Therapy Used in Healing: Habanero peppers
Disease: Testicular Cancer Healing Practitioner:  Developed own cure based partially on teachings of Emanuel Revici (M.D.)
Areas Affected:  Stage 4 - had lesions all over body Cure Scale :  Has been in remission since completiton of therapy

The following interview is with Kelley Eidem.  In 1996 Kelley published a book on the life and therapeutic breakthroughs of Emanuel Revici (M.D.).  One day, two years later, Kelley discovered brown lesions on his thigh and calf. A few days after that, he discovered them all over his body. Having just written a book on Emanuel Revici and cancer he recognized it for what it was and did a self diagnosis using a home pregnancy test.  Doctors later stated that they believed he had stage 4 testicular cancer.  In this interview Kelley talks about what he did to rid himself of Cancer in two weeks.


John:  Thank you so much for taking the time to talk to me today, Kelley.

Kelley Eidem:  Sure, no problem.

John:  You wrote a book in 1996 entitled "The Doctor Who Cures Cancer." Maybe you can start out by telling everyone a little bit about it. For instance the book was about Emanuel Revici…

Kelley:  Yeah.

John:  Who was he? And what did he do?

Kelley:  He was born in Romania and he graduated first in his class in medical school. He had a patient come to him, a woman, who had advanced cancer and was pregnant. They opened her up to do surgery on her and realized that there was nothing they could do. They just closed her up. They didn't take the cancer out. [Clears throat]

He thought, at that point, that she was going to die of cancer. However, she showed up at his office, I think it was two years later, with her baby and was cancer free. And this dumbfounded him, because she hadn't had any treatment. So he began to think about what could have happened? Here she was pregnant and how did the surgery and her pregnancy affect her recovery?

That lead him to explore different things and, to make a long story short, he actually patented 100 different medications that he developed. He was the kind of man who slept about two or three hours a night and he worked seven days a week treating mostly cancer patients, but also other patients.

Due to a lab accident he ended up in an iron lung when he was about 42. He got out of  the iron lung, which I believe was from the medications and he lived to be 101 years old.

John:  Wow. So he developed these medicines.. And were these medicines accepted by mainstream?

Kelley:  Not at all. Not at all. Well, they were accepted initially by many doctors that came from some of the leading cancer institutes around the United States. He was located in Mexico at that time. He had to flee. [Clears throat] I didn't mention, he had gone to France for the Pasteur Institute to do more research.

That was around the time of, you know, Hitler and the Nazis. He had to flee France and was able to go to Mexico but could not get into the United States initially. He was there for about five or six years and during that time the word got out to places like the McArdle Institute in Wisconsin which was, at the time, a top institute in UCLA and different places.

The doctors were amazed but then things turned on him. There was a dean from the University of Texas who decided to draft a letter that he had all these doctors sign. It was untrue, but they signed it anyway, and it was published in the "Journal of the American Medical Association."

That was the beginning of many, many different attacks on him, which resulted in other doctors not finding out about him. Or if they did find out about him they thought that what he was doing was ineffective.

John:  What was your motivation for writing this book? I ask this because at this time in your life didn't you have cancer? Is that correct?

Kelley:  That's correct. Yeah. I had graduated from college and decided when I was in college that I wanted to be a writer. I started writing for the college newspaper. Writing a column, and then after that I was actually published in the "Washington Post" and they paid me for it. A good amount for the amount of effort it took.

And I thought, "Well that could be a nice way to have some income. I could just keep writing, you know, columns for the Washington Post."

I was looking for something to write about, and I knew a lot about alternative medicine. At that time, President Clinton was attempting to get some kind of healthcare bill. I thought, "Well, how can we tie in natural care?" because I knew that would be the best results of all.

I made a bunch of phone calls, and found out that there was a congressman who had sponsored a bill, and I went to see and interview him in his office. He told me about a hearing that had taken place over on the senate side. I went and got the transcript from that, and saw that there was a father who was talking about his daughter, who had been treated by Dr. Revici, and it was an amazing story.

So I called him, this father, and talked to him for a couple hours. Then I contacted the clinic and they sent me some information in the mail about what Dr. Revici had done. I just looked at it, and I said, "Oh my goodness, this isn't an article. This is a book."

John:  Wow.

Kelley:  From that moment on it was just full speed ahead. Took about two years to write the book, to do the research, and to write it.

John:   You said you knew a lot about alternative medicine.  How did that come about?

Kelley:  How did it come about?

John:  Yeah.

Kelley:  I actually had kidney disease when I was in my… since, from about the age of 20 to 25, off and on and I finally decided to do something about it. I found a doctor, who was a holistic doctor, and he got me on the right track. It reversed my kidney disease. Prior to that when I was urinating it would come out sometimes like the color of Coca‑Cola.

John:  Ay, that's not good.

Kelley:  Yeah. So, I was not good. I had read some books earlier, a couple books earlier, that led me to go to a holistic doctor.

John:  OK.

Kelley:  And that worked really well. So I got a niche to do since I was around the age of 25.

John:  After you wrote this book in 1996 ‑‑ a couple years later, if my timeline's correct ‑‑ that's when you contracted cancer?

Kelley:  Yeah. Let's see, it's either '97 or '98. Yeah.

John:  OK.

Kelley:  I wanted to take a shower and I noticed that I had this brown lesion, which was about the size of half a dollar on my thigh on the side. Within about two, three days, I had a dozen of them and they were all over. So I thought, "Hmm, Let me check this out. I might have cancer."

Because of what I knew ‑‑ having written the book and other things I had known ‑‑ I wasn't concerned in the least. Most people, when they find out that they have cancer, their life flashes in front of them. It wasn't like this for me at all.

I went and got a pregnancy test from the grocery store, or from the, you know, pharmacy...

John:  Yep.

Kelley:  I tested myself and, in fact, it came out positive. I learned later that if it comes up negative, it's not a real accurate test ‑‑ the one you buy in the grocery store -- because you have to have enough of a certain hormone being released to make it trigger positive. Well, I had enough, because it triggered positive.

So I took what I had learned from writing the book, and I took some other things I had learned previously. I modified it, and I just put it all together. It was a simple recipe. In four or five days all my lesions were gone.

After about two or three days, about three or four of the lesions started coming back. Before they were brown. Now they were, sort of just a ring on the outside and more reddish. So I just went back on it for another four, five days. Then I continued to take the oil for six months.

And within four, five days they all disappeared again. I just stayed on the oil because I figured, well, I need to balance my metabolism, which is one of the keys to getting rid of cancer. It's got me on balanced metabolism. And the oil helped me to do that.

It's been 12 years. I've never gotten one of those lesions again, at all.

John:  You had the, the disease for about two weeks then?

Kelley:  Yeah, if you add up the days, it comes out to about two weeks exactly. Now, in my case, because I didn't do chemo, or radiation or surgery, which interferes with the body's ability to recover, I recovered very quickly. I wasn't taking any other medications or drugs at that time. I still don't.

John:  OK.

Kelley:  I don't take drugs. I think that helped.

John:  OK. Can you provide the, the recipe that you used?

Kelley:  Well, I can. It varies depending on the metabolism. The basics are to freshly grate habanero peppers ‑‑ and that's not Jalapeño peppers, that's habanero peppers ‑‑ these extraordinarily hot peppers and to grate fresh garlic. And I put them on, what's called Ezekiel bread, which is a sprouted bread. I think there's also Essene bread but I used Ezekiel bread.

John:  Ezekiel's a brand name, correct?

Kelley:  Brand name, yeah. It's a sprouted bread. Then I smothered it with butter. I mean, I literally covered the peppers and, and the garlic. I just put it on about half a piece of bread, folded it over, and then I put the butter on and I smothered it 'cause I knew it was going to be really hot, and I ate it.

At the time that I did it, I actually had a tincture made up of habanero peppers. It's actually easier to do it that way, to make a tincture. I used a tincture with peppers and I used freshly grated garlic.

John:  What is a tincture?

Kelley:  A tincture is just basically taking your herbs, putting them in a blender, and then its done. What I did is however much peppers you have, that volume, one‑third of that volume I used water and then other third I used vodka.

This way you have two‑thirds of the blender filled up with liquid, and then you put the peppers in. You turn the blender on for a minute and you have a tincture. That's how easy it is...

John:  OK.

Kelley:  I have since learned that, if, with my metabolism it would have been better to put it in yogurt as opposed to the bread, but let me back up a little bit.

There are two metabolisms and we basically call one of them being too anabolic and the other one just called too catabolic. You don't really have to worry about the words too much. Those are two processes that we go through during the day except that people who have cancer are stuck pretty much on the one side or the other, and they may be totally stuck on one side or the other.

The idea is that if a person is too anabolic to get them balanced.  Get them more catabolic and vice versa. If they're too catabolic, you want to bring a balance in them. That's where the oils come in. I used the emulsified cod liver oil.

All this is on the website where you can see it on, on the HubPage article. I used the emulsified cod liver oil cause I was too anabolic and I wanted to balance it back. That worked really great.

I always have the emulsified version because anybody who has cancer, their digestive system probably is suboptimal, so it's better to have the emulsified if we can get it. Had I been too catabolic, then I would have used either the evening primrose oil or borage oil in place of the cod liver oil.

John:  How does somebody find out whether they are catabolic or not?

Kelley:  If they have pain there is a simple assessment they can do. They can get some black coffee and cup of boiled eggs, boiled or poached only, and what they do is, to evaluate their pain before they eat it. They go, "OK, my pain is..." whatever on a scale of 1 to 10, give it a number, and then eat it and then see if your symptoms improve or get worse.

I think that's one of the key things about my recipe, about the work of Dr. Revici that really no one else is doing. People talk about being too...everybody is too acidic with cancer. That's not totally true. Some people are too alkaline.

And so it's important to balance either one because if you use the same treatment for two different people and one is too anabolic and the other is too catabolic, the treatment will help the one and hurt the other.

With my recipe and Dr. Revici's work, I find out that in fact you can tailor what you're doing based on your own metabolism, which is obviously going to increase your odds of getting 100 percent better.

John:  So, how did you find this cure because, I know, it's not in your book?

Kelley:  Yes. I took what I knew from Dr. Revici. One, I need to balance the metabolism. That's where the oils come in. The other part of it, I had watched a series of video tapes that included Dr. Richard Schulze and he, in one of the video tapes, talked about 10 power herbs.

He mentioned in passing that garlic was an anticancer fighter and that the habanero peppers are like what he called the lead wolf. It breaks up the congestion and cancer cells. The congestion is fibrin basically, which is a sticky and cancer cells have 15 times as much fibrin associated with them as do regular cells.

So the pepper gets in there and wipes out the congestion. It also has some anticancer properties of its own. Then the garlic, it has anticancer properties and so the combination is a one‑two punch that just lays it low.

John:  On your HubPages, it states that you had stage IV cancer. Is, is that correct?

Kelley:  Yes.

John:  And before and you just told me that you, it was testicular cancer?

Kelley:  Yes. I had told a couple doctors about what my symptoms were and using the pregnancy test, and both of them immediately said that it's a testicular cancer. So, I did have...I had pain, sharp pains in my testicles that showed up. It's funny they didn't show up initially, but when the lesions had come back it did show up.

I was sitting in a conference ironically at the NIH, National Institutes of Health. There was a conference going on. I was in the audience and I would get these flashes of pain like electrical pains almost or kind of  like a kid getting hit in the balls...

John:  OK.

Kelley:  Normally when you get hit, you know, you double over and it takes a while to recover it. This pain passed almost instantly which was a relief, but they kept coming. Boom, boom, boom - probably a half dozen or a dozen times while I was sitting there in the audience.

When I described it to the doctors, they said that's what I had.

John:  So how did you know it was stage IV?

Kelley:  If you have lesions on your body that are below and above the diaphragm, that's automatically considered to be stage IV cancer. I had a dozen lesions that went from my calves and all of them were good‑sized lesions and they were on my calves, on my thighs, on my butt, on my back, on both legs, on my upper back. They were all over.

John:  Why didn't you go to the doctor?

Kelley:  Well, I didn't have any insurance and I knew they couldn't do anything for me anyway. I also knew that doing a biopsy can help to spread cancer. Since mine showed up so fast, with these lesions popping up almost like popcorn, I thought, "The last thing I want is to have a needle stuck in these things, and turn them on even faster."

John:  What was happening in your life at this time, when you woke up and you went in the shower? Was it a stressful period of time?

Kelley:  Um. Hmm...

John:  Do you have any theories about why you might've gotten cancer?

Kelley:  I had been gaining weight and I wasn't eating right. I was eating a lot of ice cream. So it's possible that that's it...I don't know what caused it, but that's a possibility.

John:  OK. I know on your Hub webpages, you're asking people to send in their stories (of healing) to you.

Kelley:  Yeah.

John:  Have you got a lot of responses from that?

Kelley:  Yeah. There's about 3,000 comments on that one article and you can see those there. I even created a second HubPage and I said, "Well, here's some of them. Here's, here's some of the, the fantastic results." Like there was one lady who had only wrote in one time.  She said, she'd used my recipe and in two weeks, the, how did she put it... the stabbing, knife‑piercing pain and the lump went away.

Another fella had a 10‑inch tumor in his colon, and he'd been trying all kinds of things for several months, but he was having daily flatulence and bleeding and pain. Nothing that he tried had seemed to make a dent. Then when he started on my recipe, within the first day, his flatulence and his bleeding and his pain all went away. And then, ultimately, his tumor went away as well.

John:  OK. Great. But not everybody who's tried your recipe has been successful or have they?

Kelley:  No, of course not! Of course not! You know, I can't say why that is because I'm not there with the people. I don't know what their lifestyle is. I don't make a lot of dietary suggestions, only because I'm afraid it'll create too much of a thicket of confusion, because everybody has a different opinion about a diet. I don't want that to interfere with "OK, this recipe works."

I don't feel comfortable trying to direct their lives as to what they're going to do, because a lot of times the people think, "Oh, I've got to give this up, I've got to give that up". They're already under so much stress and so much fear, that to throw another thing on top of them is going to scare them off.

People who started on it, they've already had chemo and radiation and, at this point, nothing is working. Their relative gets online and starts looking to see how they can help them. So the person's already got cancer all over the place, their body's been damaged by the chemo and the radiation and the surgery.

They have scar tissue and scar tissue can block the very best treatment that you have. You have to get rid of that scar tissue in one-way or another.  I've told them that if I had what they had, I would use Zymessence or some other proteolytic enzyme, which will help to soften those scar tissues. The recipe can have a better shot at helping them this way.

John:  Yeah. So your recipe works better if somebody is taking it fresh without doing any chemo or radiation or having a biopsy. Right?

Kelley:  Right. Right, and there's also another fact that people, even if it isn't chemo, a lot of times people are on several drugs. OK?

And typically the doctors will prescribe antidepressants, almost as a matter of course, when someone gets cancer. All those antidepressants cause their digestive system to become sluggish. So they're absorbing less. Their ability to absorb things has been decreased.

Just that one drug might have a negative effect. Plus, if they're taking other medications, who knows what kind of effect that those medications are having on them.

I personally, if I could, would want to get off all my drugs. Now, some drugs you don't want to get off immediately, but, if you want to live, there's, there's a nerve for everything, just about. So that's the approach that I would take to ensure that you get 100 percent better.

John:  OK. So, with that, I just have my last question. Do you have any words of wisdom or thoughts on healing that might help others?

Kelley:  [laughs]

John:  I know you've provided a lot so far.

Kelley:  I guess, this is going to be shocking to people but cancer is easy to cure. If you recall scurvy, well we've cured scurvy. You eat an orange, and, and you're well. [clears throat] You get well by eating oranges.

If scurvy had not been cured to this day, and modern medicine was trying to cure it, I would be pretty sure that what they would do is give people all kinds of chemotherapy to stop the processes of the injury that's being caused by the scurvy. And scurvy would be more of a scourge than it was. People would be dying from scurvy.

Fortunately, before modern medicine came about, the cure was found for scurvy. But if we were treating it today it would be hard to cure it. We don't think of scurvy as hard to cure. We think it's very easy to cure.

Cancer is the same way. There are so many things that can cure cancer, and, mine is just real cheap and fast. If we allow the body to heal itself, it will. It's not so hard.

John:  So there are other things that also work, to cure cancer?

Kelley:  Oh, lots of things. Lots of things. Sure. There are probably 50 different things. I couldn't list them all but yeah, there is. People have been cured by many, many different things.

See, what people don't realize, that doctors don't realize even, is that cancer cells are in our body all the time. What they're for is if we cut ourselves they are actually involved in the healing of a cut. OK?

John:  OK.

Kelley: They turn off immediately when we heal. They're designed to turn off very rapidly. It's not surprising that you can get well in a hurry, depending on how dedicated you are to it.

I mean if you're going, [laughs], to eat a half a gallon of ice cream each day and take the peppers, it's going to take longer. [laughs] You know. [laughs] So...Yeah. That's, I guess, I don't know if those are words of wisdom, but that's what came to mind.

John:  That's great. Just on that - back to where you were saying about when you were taking your sandwich of ha‑, ha‑, habarino peppers?

Kelley:  Habanero.

John:  Habanero peppers. What else were you eating? Were you just eating those?

Kelley:  No, I guess I don't remember. I didn't change my diet a great deal. I'm trying to rememb‑, I...

John:  So, it was not just those...

Kelley:  ...may have quit eating ice cream. I'm sure I quit eating ice cream.

John:  Yeah.

Kelley:  'Cause I was, I was really addicted to it. I was eating a lot of ice cream. So I'm sure that I stopped doing that.

I'm not a vegetarian by any means. I think some people need to eat meat, particularly type O blood types. I'm a type O. Type A's, probably it's good to be a vegetarian or close to it. But for me, no, I didn't give up eating meat or anything like that.

John:  OK.

Kelley:  Fresh vegetables are always good. We know that's healthy. I think everybody would agree that fresh vegetable greens are healthy...

John:  Yeah.

Kelley:  They're really good for you.

John:  I was just wondering whether or not you had eaten anything else when you were having those habanero sandwiches.

Kelley:  Oh, yeah. Yeah, that was just what I ate for breakfast I guess you could say.

John:  OK. So how many times would you eat it a day?

Kelley:  I'm sorry?

John:  How many times would you eat that a day, then?

Kelley:  I just ate it once a day. I think I took the oil some days, twice a day. Some people have done the recipe twice a day, and it seems to work for them.

If I had really advanced cancer possibly a big tumor, that sort of thing, I would not do it necessarily twice a day because I wouldn't want too much of the cancer to pass through the bloodstream and into my kidneys, because, [clears throat] the dead tissue might be hard on the kidneys to do that.

By the way, I should mention that when people do my recipe, if they have blood work done to measure for cancer markers, their cancer markers would go up. The reason for that is the cancer needs to get out somehow, and the markers that they measure for, are passing through the bloodstream.

For me, if my markers are up and I'm feeling really good, then I know it's working. If my markers are up and I'm feeling worse, then it's like, "No, maybe I'm using the wrong oil or something. It's not working."

People get scared off. The doctors, that's what they're trained to think, "Oh, the numbers are up. You're dying." Well, actually, the numbers being up is a very good thing.

John:  OK. Great. Well, thank you very much, Kelley, for joining me today.

Kelley:  Oh, you're quite welcome.

John:  That’s really helpful.

Kelley:  OK.  Have a nice day.

John:  Great, thank you very much.

Kelley:  OK. Have a nice day. You take care.

John:  Bye, Kelley.
