Catherine’s Protocol

 In April of 2009 a family member was diagnosed as having Stage IV Ovarian Cancer.

After reviewing the realities of the treatment outcomes for ovarian cancer patients, it became apparent to me that we absolutely did not know how to save the lives of the women who develop this cancer.

In response to that realization I began a search for options that might improve the probability of getting these patients into remission, and of keeping them there if remission was achieved.

The resulting protocol resulted from luck, synchronicity, and a lot of very hard work. It has evolved across time and has been debugged through actual implementation.

Although it might be useful as a standalone strategy, I must stress that it was designed to be used as an add on to the therapeutic options Oncologists normally use.

Let me repeat. This protocol is designed to be integrated into your Oncologist’s regular treatment protocol, and as such – you must work with your Oncologist to make sure there are no interferences between what he/she is trying to achieve and the elements of this protocol.

I have been reluctant to publish this protocol because I do not want to propose things to you that I do not feel I can absolutely defend.

I am now as convinced as I can be within the time that has elapsed that this protocol might be useful for achieving remission and prolonging the time of remission for Ovarian Cancer and Breast Cancer patients, and am – in fact – hopeful that it would be useful for many other cancer types.

Although elements of the protocol may help slow the progression and/or metastasis of breast and ovarian cancer tumors that have migrated to the brain, it will NOT stop them once they are lodged on the brain side of the blood brain barrier.

I have posted copies of documents that define the protocol below. Clicking on the red links will bring up a copy of one of two different documents that have been written for physicians and pharmacists about this protocol.



The trickiest part of implementing them is the timing of using the protocol vs chemotherapy and radiation treatments and the calculation of the target salsalate dose.

If your physician would like to try this protocol please have her/him e-mail me and I will help them calculate a target salsalate dose for you. If you don’t have access to salsalate, aspirin could be used – but it is much more dangerous and the doses and dose timing are different than those for salsalate. I have thought about this often, and would be willing to share my thoughts and dosing calculations with your physician if salsalate is not available. ( )

Other details (e.g. how to mix and administer the ginger extract drink) can be found elsewhere in this blog. Please note that it is taken three times a day.

Yes, I have been trying to leave hints as time has passed.

This is a first pass at documenting this protocol on this blog, and I will be coming back to edit it and clarify the protocol.

In reply to those who believe it crazy, I can only say this.. read the literature that details the life expectancy and mortality rates for Stage III and Stage IV Ovarian and Breast Cancer patients. They document the state of the art for saving these patients’ lives. I submit for your consideration that anything I propose will have as good a track record as the current standards of care.

I do not guarantee anything except the fact that I have put my best effort into defining this protocol, and that I believe it has a good probability of helping.

It is most probable that your Oncologist will be reluctant to consider implementing this protocol into his/her treatment plan. There are many reasons for this, and it might be helpful to suggest a team approach that enlists your personal physician to manage the elements your oncologist does not feel comfortable dealing with.

As always, I am a pharmacist. Not a physician, and definately not an expert in oncology. You MUST seek the guidance of your physician before attempting to implement this protocol. Although the substances seem common place, I assure you that their effects are quite real and they can be dangerous if they are not properly implemented.

Pharmacists Pharmacist, Physicians Physician, Oncologists Oncologist, and Cancer Patients pray for a breakthrough every night.

I hope this information will be helpful to you.
