DCA Explained

Dichloroacetate Explained

The following explanation about DCA is reprinted below and comes from the website naturalnews:

(NaturalNews) A treatment option has been discovered with a substance that was once used for unusual metabolic problems. Yet, the cancer industry shows no interest with following up on dichloroacetate (DCA) research from University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada, reported in 2007. That’s because DCA is no longer patented.

That research also confirmed cancer as a metabolic malfunction, not a weird mutation of cells often explained away as a genetic issue. But the medical mafia doesn’t want you to hear about it. But it confirms what most alternative cancer therapists already know.

Since Nixon declared the “war on cancer” in the 1970s, the cancer industry has succeeded with raising money for researching very expensive chemo substances at $50,000 to $100,000 per round or more for toxic therapies that rarely work.

Chemo drugs usually lead to demanding more business with drugs to ease terrible side effects (http://www.naturalnews.com/034761_cancer_drugs_toxicity_Voraxaze.html). Meanwhile, more are getting cancer and more are dying from it, mostly because of the toxic treatments.

Explaining DCA research results

Evangelos Michelakis and the Alberta University research team tested DCA on human cancer cells outside the body and in cancerous mice with profound success. DCA was once used for unusual metabolic disorders. The worst side effects, which rarely occur, include some numbness and an affected gait.

The mice were fed DCA in water, and in weeks they had remarkable tumor shrinkage. This indicates DCA can be taken orally. DCA works by restoring the cells’ mitochondria. Michelakis and his team had discovered that the mitochondria in cancer cells are not permanently damaged and irreparable. This is what mainstream medicine thinks.

With mitochondria malfunctioning, cancer cells use glucose fermentation for survival energy. This fermentation occurs when glycolysis (glucose conversion) occurs in an anaerobic cellular environment, which can be created by benign tumor masses, toxins, and low pH levels.

DCA restores mitochondria in cells to make them function properly. Another function of normal mitochondria is signaling apoptosis, or cellular self destruction. Normal cells die and become replaced constantly. But with cancer cells, the apoptosis signal is nullified, making cancer cells “immortal.”

The Alberta University researchers also realized that glycolysis fermentation in cancer cells produces lactic acid. The lactic acid breaks down the collagen holding those cells together in a tumor. This allows cancer cells to easily break away from a tumor shrinking with mainstream therapies.

The researchers reasoned this is why cancer metastasizes or spreads to different parts of the body or reappears after remission from chemo.

Tragic Hypocrisy

Alternative cancer therapies have little or no problem with metastatic cancer or even cancer reoccurring after remission. Most alternative cancers simply cure cancers completely.

DCA offers the cancer industry an opportunity to come up with a pharmaceutical cure that is much cheaper and safer than their current standard of care. Yet the cancer industry is ignoring this opportunity. Instead, DCA is a homeless orphan begging for research funds to avoid legal issues with off label use on cancer.

Alternative cancer practitioners have always simply tried out and when they succeeded shared them with others who cared more about healing than money and power.

The medical mafia has created a matrix that demands big bucks to make big bucks for sick care instead of curing. Everyone in on the scam makes out financially. The cancer industry accuses alternative cancer therapists of quackery and taking advantage of the desperately ill for financial gain. Accusing others of your motives and crimes is called projection.

The medical/pharmaceutical complex is crony capitalism that doesn’t want a cure for cancer from anywhere.

    My dad has liver cancer three tumors July 2 cm and a 3 cm, I could tell if this treatment is suitable for this type of cancer (tumors). If so, what is the right dose.

    • admin September 22, 2012 at 9:20 am #

      This is suitable, we need to know the weight of your dad.

  6. brian longhurst August 26, 2012 at 8:48 pm #

    You seem so confident about DCA,are you sure you are not being over confident?

    • admin August 30, 2012 at 10:52 pm #

      The information on the site is actually just a summary of what has been said by various experts in the cancer research field.

      If you watched the dca videos by the medical doctors you would know this.

    HI, I had Non Hodghins follicolar Lynphoma, 4 stadium. After Rchop, in complete remission. Still doing Maintenance with rituximab. After one year a little interfetrence with PET scan I had in my upper left leg. I have another year maintenance to do. Do you thinlk is useful to start DCA now? Wich dosage? How often? Thanks for help

    • admin August 16, 2012 at 12:20 pm #

      I do think PureDCA will help – and certainly cannot hurt.

      Take a low dose of 10mg per kg daily and supplement with thiamin (up to 750mg daily to
      pervent neuropathy)

    can dca help really old people

    • admin July 24, 2012 at 12:06 pm #

      we are using dca and thiamin therapy on all cancers and all ages – we have patients well into their 80s

  10. Peggy July 8, 2012 at 5:02 am #

    Is this treatment suitable for a 77 year with a corpus collossus tumour which is highly aggressive ? What dose would be suggested?

    • admin July 24, 2012 at 12:12 pm #

      the age is not an issue as dca does not harm any of the healthy tissue or cells whereas other therapies like chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery all damage healthy
      cells (while trying to get the unhealthy cancerous ones) – dca does NO harm and does not waste the body’s energy. For corpus collossus tumour, the dosage of dca is up to 15mg per kilogram plus 750mg of thiamin. We recommend the daily amount of both is split in half and taken 12 hours apart with food.

    How do i get dca ?For i have lung doc /surgon telling me i have cancer due to ct scan.They did a lung needle biopsy and took 3 – 1.3 cm samples the surgon said it showed imflamation and neg for cancer but believe its false.wants to open biopsy my chest.Lung doc ordered pet scan to determin where they will disect me ,they say its could be secondary cancer.and poss lymphoma as well as addral gland and lung ,i am 35.if it is cancer i rather try dca ,i been taking other cancer fighter natural agents i get from our local vitamin store.Please help me if it is cancer i am a mother of 4 and my youngest is 4 and 6.Me and my husband dont have any family here in Buffalo,ny to help us .I know chemo can kill me fast .i have seen what chemo has done to family members.Can u please help me and where i can get this

    • admin July 24, 2012 at 12:22 pm #

      you get puredca in either capsule form or pure powder by ordering from here:

      PureDCA capsules make it easier to dose and easier to take if you travel or are taking a mid-day dose while at work, etc.
      PureDCA powder is the original method of dosing but it requires a medicinal scale and the ability to accurately measure your dca dosing.

      Both dca capsules and dca powder are dosed with a weight-based and cancer-based formula with 750mg of thiamin supplemented daily to prevent neuropathy.
      Since we added the thiamin to our protocol 2 years ago there is no more cases of neuropathy – tingling in the extremities (fingers and toes).

      I highly suggest you begin the dca and thiamin as soon as possible because secondary cancers often start when doctors do surgery and biopsies because they have broken into the cancer mass and often cancer cells are released into the body where they start another tumour somewhere else. (this is what makes it a seconddary cancer)

    My dog has a massive, inoperable tumor. I am thinking about trying her on DCA as a last ditch effort to save her. Is there any research of using DCA on animals? Any and all advice is welcome

    • admin July 24, 2012 at 12:23 pm #

      we have been treating animals (and people) with dca since it was discovered in 2007

      pet dosages of dca are 20mg per kilogram body weight (you can add equal amounts of thiamin if and when they show signs of neuropathy)

      we have treated everything from race horses to pet rats with success

  13. Douglas Broome May 24, 2012 at 6:12 pm #

    What is the recommended dosage ? What is the purity of the dichloroacetate ?
    Can I get verification of what is being sold?

    • admin July 24, 2012 at 1:11 pm #

      we need to know the type of cancer being treated to make a dosage recommendation



          breaking tumors is 20mg per kilogram body weight

          brain 15mg per kilogram (and absolutely no caffeine)

          systemic cancers (blood, lymph, etc) 10mg per kilogram

        Once in remission, HALF DOSAGES above

        As a cancer preventative 4mg/kg bodyweight

        Our dca is the purest available – coming from North America and is over 99% pure. It is our DCA that is recommended by the University Research Team that made this discovery in 2007. This is also the DCA that is used in the University of Alberta Hospital for treatent as well as by patients of Medicor cancer Center in Toronto. Our dca is also used by doctors for themselves, their families, and select patients as well as in small Clinical Trials around the world.
        You are welcome to test it in any lab.

        When you order you will receive specific details on how to maintain the potency of the dca once you open the bottle and begin treating yourself.

      will it work for lip cancer

      • admin March 30, 2012 at 1:03 am #

        Yes it should as the underlying mechanism of how cancer works is the same for all types of cancer.

      sorry breast cancer (typo)

    • Mahendra March 13, 2012 at 7:56 pm #

      will DCA help control brear cancer metastasized to the liver and bones? Do alternative medicine clinics use it? WHich ones do in B.C.?

      • admin March 13, 2012 at 8:12 pm #

        Yes it will. We had one person shrink a tumor in her breast by 2 inches in a few weeks on DCA. The only clinic that I know of that uses DCA is medicor. There is one in Toronto, Ontario and one in Mexico. The clinic in Toronto is run by MD’s. They have a LOT of information about DCA, which they use extensively to treat cancer in a clinical setting. Their website is http://www.medicorcancer.com/

      Is D.C.A. aproppriate for advanced cancer cases?

      • admin March 12, 2012 at 7:37 pm #

        Yes it is. The majority of people using our pure dca are in stage 4 and we have had many of them call and email us to report incredible improvements.
