Updated March 2016 – For more information on GcMAF, please join the GcMAF and GcMAF Cancer forums on Facebook – they are closed groups, so you have to wait for your membership to be confirmed. They contain up-to-date information on sources of GcMAF, and also feedback and contributions by people who are using GcMAF.
Updated 21 September 2014 – a reader, Yulia Dolgopolova ND Sc.D, left a comment: apparently Vitamin D dosage depends on metabolic type. The Sun is the best source, but it is safe to take 2000-6000 UI daily for the special health conditions (D3 solution must be organic virgin olive oil or high quality cod liver oil with low vitamin A); days ON & days OFF are essential to maintain the balance (for example, D3 for 20-25 days, then rest for 5-7 days). An interesting book to read: Vitamin D by David Feldman et. al., 3rd edition (Amazon.com)
Florian Schilling studied pre-clinical medicine at the Ludwig-Maximillian-Universitat Munchen (LMU), and then trained as an alternative practitioner, with his own clinic since 2006, specialising in integrated and complementary tumour therapy, CFS/ME, general regulatory medicine and detoxification. He has been a lecturer at the Paracelsus College in Munich since 2007, and lectures both in Germany and internationally.
Leaky gut is not something I’ve considered part of my anti-cancer protocol. I’m not sure why – perhaps it’s because I’ve always had a cast iron stomach, able to eat most foods, and enjoy good digestion. But after Florian Schilling’s talk (and a later presentation by Dr ) I’ve come to realise that just because I can digest food doesn’t mean I have a good gut – there are things happening at a molecular level that I may not be aware of, that is contributing to the environment that helped nurture the cancer.
After the talk, I was with Peter when he had a consultation with Cindy, the naturopath at Prof. Dr Nesslehut’s in Duderstadt. She recommended Mutaflor, a German probiotic, for leaky gut. I’d never heard of Mutaflor before. It turned out to be a probiotic consisting of a viable non-pathogenic bacteria strain named Escherichia coli Nissle 1917. Now, Florian Schilling’s talk said not to use any probiotics containing E. Coli, so I was in a quandry. But I decided to try it. I’ve been having sluggish bowels because of Low Dose Naltrexone. All the forums I’ve been on suggest using laxatives or magnesium. Even my favourite remedy, Senna Pod Tea, has let me down this time. All I can say is Mutaflor sorted the issue out, which for me is interesting – has LDN killed the bacteria in my gut? Or just slowed down the peristalsis? Either way, Mutaflor works: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mutaflor
Also of significance in Florian Schilling’s talk is his comment on the use of glutathione, an anti-oxidant. He uses it for his patients, but he says that it is contraindicated in the case of patients with tumours. Now that is interesting because Hallwang were lavish in their use of glutathione in their infusions. But if you google “glutathione cancer concentration”, there is a plethora of articles on why glutathione in the case of cancer patients may not be a good thing – in fact it may be fuelling the cancer cells.
He wasn’t the only practitioner with this caveat, another speaker in the conference also said that he did not use glutathione for his cancer patients.
It makes it worth the hassle in travel and conference fees to find a gem like this. We place our health in the hands of practitioners whom we hope know what they are doing. The problem is that cancer is such a diverse field, and often specialists are too busy to look or read outside their fields. The acquisition of new knowledge can only be obtained at conferences like the one in Fulda where you get world-class specialists who are willing to share their trade secrets.
All chronically-ill patients have leaky guts, that is their intestinal permeability barriers are compromised. The intestinal permeability barriers control the equilibrium between tolerance and immunity to foreign antigens. When the finely-tuned balanced is disrupted both intestinal and autoimmune disorders can occur.
The following are intestinal permeability barriers:
- The mucosa
- Intestinal flora
- Gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT)
If any two of the barriers are impaired, you can assume you have leaky gut.
The human intestines contain ten times as many bacteria as in body cells. Thus, the human body is a minority in itself!
What is gut flora for?
- metabolic functions from bacterial processes (especially in the creation of B vitamins)
- creation of butyric acid – this generates 50% of the caloric supply to mucosa cells (you can’t buy butyric acid in supplement form! – NOPE, sorry, I was wrong – see comment below left by a very canny reader! It is possible to buy butyric acid – just google “butyric acid buy”.)
The intrinsic stool frequency should be twice a day, and once a day at the very minimum.
Fungus growth in intestines and testing
80% of the population get fungus through their intestines. The test for fungus is D-Arabinitol and L-Arabinitol.
It is more difficult to find disturbances in the GALT itself.
Tests for leaky gut include:
SIgA and Calprotectin
[Explanation of tests taken from: http://www.purehealthshop.co.uk/shop/article_13/Intestinal-Inflammation-PNM-Elastase-%28Stool%29.html?shop_param=cid%3D1%26aid%3D13%26.
You can also get tests done from the same site.
SIgA test: The secretory IgA (sIgA) is produced by mucous membranes and can be found in secretions like saliva, tears, nose mucus and gastrointestinal secretions. The synthesis of sIgA is independent from the serum IgA. That means that a lack of IgA does not necessarily mean a lack of sIgA.
The concentration of sIgA gives us information about the intestinal immune defence. A lack of sIgA indicates a diminished activity of the intestinal immune system. An increased level of sIgA shows intestinal inflammation.
Calprotectin is a protein seen in inflammatory cells and is reliably detected in stool. If positive, it can show the presence of some form of inflammation in the gut and point to possible problems like colitis which can then be followed up.]
Calprotectin – increased level – leads to non-specific defense activity.
A high IgG (antibodies) level and a low Th3 lymphocyte count can’t work .(Th3 lymphocytes are involved in mucosal immunity and protecting mucosal surfaces in the gut from nonpathogenic non-self antigens). [Colostrum contains a high percentage of IgG, especially bovine colostrum]
Don’t do an endoscopy to test for leaky gut because it’s a microscopic tissue.
Alpha-1 anti-trypsin (a protein) should not be found in the stool. If it is, it could be a permeability disorder.
More reliable than the Alpha 1AT test is the Laktulose-Mannitol Test.
Don’t take probiotics containing E.Coli
Increase in ammonia = increase in alkalinity. The pancreas has to increase digestive enzymes to counteract this alkalinity. This leads to an increase in permeability and in antigen level, and therefore to an increase in the inflammatory process.
To counteract, we need to take more antioxdants. But which antioxidants?
- Vitamin E
- Vitamin C
- Alpha Lipoic Acid
Alpha Lipoic Acid can regenerate all these other antioxidants.
Vitamin C consumes Glutathione
Glutathione is more important
Alpha Lipoic Acid + Glutathione are good for non-tumour patients
Glutathione is not good for patients with tumours because it increases resistance of tumour cells.
ALA can’t be metabolised by tumour cells. It boots the anti-oxidant level of patients.
How can we decrease dysbiosis (an imbalance of microbes in the body) in the gut?
- Ozone rectal insufflation – very effective bacterial-killing method
- Do GcMAF – oral application
- Don’t feed the bacteria, i.e. don’t do carbohydrates
- Use MAP
- Thymus extracts
- Colostrum – this takes care of Th2 dominance
- Vitamin D (serum level of more than 80ng/ml)
- Initially no meat, protein, fish, legumes – this puts the proteolytic germs on a diet
- Fruit and veg only
- Use MAP as it is easily-assimilated in the duodenum
- Rotation diet
- Eat food without histamines
- Use anti-inflammatory fatty acids
- Oral curcumin
Protocol in action:
- 4 x 10gH/d Rizol uber 2 Wochen intial 3 x 4,500mcg Ozongemisch rektal
- 50ml compound orales GcMAF/day uber 4 Wochen
- 1 x 300,000 IU Vitamin D/uber 2 Tage dann 50,000 IU/Vitamin D 2 Wochen – For tumour patients, up to 300,000 IU – initially high-dose and then lower the dose.
Cancer cells are in a redose state. When we shift a redox level from minus 200mv to minus 150mv the cells go into apoptosis because of the consumption of reduced glutathione.

The more glutathione, the more resistant the cancer cells are to chemotherapy or radiation.
