(NaturalNews) Remember the story of a 16-year-boy who ran away from his Massachusetts home in 1994 to avoid chemotherapy? His name was Billy Best, and his story was a nationwide sensation while he was in hiding.
Now, he is very healthy and cancer-free, back home working in a local health food store, consulting parents of children who are pushed into chemo and participating in medical school seminars on patient choice.
He continues to be interviewed by alternative news sites whenever a story breaks on families having to become fugitives for refusing chemo and radiation on their children. Now, he also has a book out, as told to writer Linda Conti.
It's called The Billy Best Story: Beating Cancer with Alternative Medicine, and it has 23 five-star rave reviews on Amazon.
A summary of Billy's story
From the bits and pieces of media coverage since the time Billy ran off, one gets the impression that Billy wound up in California. And from there he discovered cancer-healing protocols for his Hodgkin's lymphoma.
But actually, he never got to California. That was his Greyhound bus destination originally, but he wound up in Houston, TX.
Instead of roaming the streets as many run-away teens do, he was fortunate enough to meet up with fellow skateboarders who helped house him. Billy had no idea of the nationwide hunt for him. His parents had contacted several national news outlets out of concern for his whereabouts and health.
But one day, the father of one of Billy's skateboarder buddies said he saw Billy on one of the TV shows featuring his runaway from home after five chemo treatments. So Billy decided to return home with one provision: no chemotherapy.
Instead, he would decide on alternative methods. His nationwide exposure had elicited many suggestions from which he could choose.
Billy chose Gaston Naessens' 714-X and Essiac tea
Gaston Naessens had fled France to be able to administer injections of 714X in Quebec, Canada, but soon ran into problems there also. His solution of camphor, nitrogen and mineral salts is still manufactured in Canada, but it's banned in the USA.
Billy was taught how to inject it himself in nearby Canada, where he could purchase it, and still performs occasional maintenance injections.
Like potent hemp or cannabis oil, 714-X is on the Medical Mafia's no-no list and is difficult to get and administer. But, as long as it's not promoted as a cure, Essiac tea is very inexpensive and widely available. The trick is getting the highest quality herbs and making your own tea.
Reports of cancer patients not benefiting from Essiac tea are usually because they used teas purchased off the shelves of health food stores, which ironically are also more expensive than buying the herbs and making it yourself.
But Canadian nurse Rene Caisse cured thousands from her small-town clinic. After she died, authorities raided her clinic and destroyed all the records they could find. But the tea's recipe was discovered by Dr. Gary Glum, D.C., with one of Rene's former associates and resurfaced nationally (http://www.naturalnews.com).
Unfortunately, few understand the importance of having the exact herbs that Caisse used: Turkey rhubarb, burdock, slippery elm, and sheep sorrel with roots, organic or wild-crafted and not irradiated. Many Essiac tea providers today cheat a little, using inferior or irradiated herbs without sheep sorrel roots.
Cheating even a little corrupts this tea too much. It's my experience that you can be assured of the highest quality herbs and instructions for making the tea here (http://renecaissetea.com).
