CLL Alternatives

CLL Alternative Protocol

Posted by: Denise on: December 16, 2010

Here is the list of what I take and what I do, at this time in my life (it has changed many times) to be well and get well.  My goal is, and had been, since July 2005, to become cancer-free.  Others have done it and so can I.  (By implication, you can too!) There is no one path.  Unfortunately, we all have to find our own formula.  While that sounds daunting, to me it’s a heck of a lot better than counting on one professional who will give you fifteen minutes of his or her time, each visit.  You can give yourself as much time as you need!  Be your own health care advocate, and you can spend an hour or more EVERY DAY on yourself.  There isn’t a doctor alive — conventional or alternative — who can do that for you.  You can only do that for yourself.

Between Meals
(before breakfast, mid-afternoon, before bed)

  • Univase Forte enzymes, 6 total,  2 pills/3X a day
  • Apricot Seed pills (grind and make myself) 4 pills, 3X/day btw. meals

  • Wheatgrass Juice (I grow and juice my own) 4-5 ounces, every morning 1/2 hour before breakfast

  • Fish Oil 1000 mg (Omega 3,5,6,7,9)
  • Curcumin 665mg
  • CoQ10 50mg unbiquinol (not ubiquinone)
  • Vit D3 1000 IU softgel
  • Primrose Oil 1300 mg
  • Calcium 250 mg
  • Joint Ease (glucosamine 250mg, chondroitin 250mg, queritin 250mg, taurine 250mg)
  • Vit K2 100 mcg (bone health)


Immune-Boosting Butter
1tablespoon/day (more if I want an extra immune boost)

  • 1 stick room temp organic butter
  • 1/2 cup organic cold-pressed virgin olive oil
  • 10 capsules probiotic
  • 10 capsules colostrum
  • 6 capsules l glutamine
  • 1 tablespoon raw honey (local)

Empty capsules into a bowl.  Add olive oil, butter and honey.  Blend with immersion blender (that’s what I use).  Cover and refrigerate.

I use this, as needed for UTIs (urinary tract infections).  This has been, quite possibly, a life saver.  While I still carry a prescription for antibiotic in my wallet, I rarely, if ever, use it.  This deserves a page of its own.


  • NO sugar
  • NO gluten
  • NO white bread
  • NO refined salt
  • NO processed foods
  • NO store-bought baked goods
  • NO nuts or seeds (unless powder-fine or smooth paste

What I DO eat:

  • YES Organic greens
  • YES Organic vegetables
  • YES Organic fruit (small amount/day)
  • YES Organic grass fed beef
  • YES Organic poultry
  • YES Organic free-range eggs
  • YES Wild-caught salmon and other fish
  • YES Organic olive oils and other oils
  • YES Sprouted lentils, grains
  • YES Almond butter
  • YES Rice Cakes
  • YES Oatmeal
  • YES Organic butter
  • YES Raw milk yogurt
  • YES Greens/Fruit Juice in my Vitamix

It IS hard to eat out, but I manage.  I mostly try to limit eating out of the home to two times a week (total, includes lunch AND dinner).

I walk my dogs every day. I exercise for 15 minutes 3X/week on our elliptical trainer.  I lift weights 3X/week for my osteoporosis and heart health.  I can now run up a flight or two of steps without getting overly winded.  Couldn’t do that 10 years ago.  It pays to exercise!

My goal is to be in bed by 10pm, and to get at least 8 hours of sleep each night.  I feel wonderful when I achieve this goal.  I’ve read again and again that the sleep before midnight is the best healing sleep. It makes sense.  Try this.  It is one of the best things you can do for your immune system and your health.  It’s free -  and you can feel the results literally overnight.

Don’t worry.  Be happy. I know they have studies to prove it, but who need studies?  We all know we feel like crap when we stress out and worry.  Racing pulse.  Palpitations.  Bile in mouth.  How good can that be for you?  The experts tell us to meditate.  I’ve tried it, and it always feels weird to me.  I prefer writing in my journal or reading something relaxing.  Either one gets me away from myself, and helps me to relax and stop stressing.

That’s it for now.  I think that you can see that it takes a lot of time, effort, not to mention cash, to take care of yourself.  Whatever I’m doing is infinitely less expensive than chemo treatments.  None of it has side effects.  And I feel great.  Please write with any questions.

Due to an unreasonable amount of SPAM, I suggest that you email me at info(at) if you can’t seem to get a comment posted.

Hi, I’d like to know why did’t you add to your protocol coral calcium?

Thank you!

Hi John,
You have a valid question. I have explored coral calcium. In fact, one of my CLL Success Stories is Steve Freier who healed himself of CLL via dental revision and coral calcium. I did have the dental revision. And I have tried the coral calcium. I didn’t see a huge difference with either. The dental revision was a much bigger deal. My husband and I flew to Houston to have a root canal tooth and two cavitations removed. I still have two remaining cavitations (according to the dentist I visited), but I haven’t returned as yet because I don’t feel it had a big enough impact on my health to warrant the time, the expense, and the ordeal of dental surgery.

But back to coral calcium. I tried it and was underwhelmed with the results. However, I might have been taking it improperly, or taking the wrong product or brand, and I might not have been doing other things properly in order for it to work. I know this all sounds hokey, but there is truth to it. Supplements generally don’t hurt us, so they are worth trying. But sometimes they work slowly, or need other supplements (or lack thereof) in order to work. This is why it is good to occasionally revisit supplements we’ve tried without results. (For example, I’ve tried green tea pills at least twice, and despite the good reports, it doesn’t work for me.)

Do you have a coral calcium success story for us, John? Why do you ask? Please share any information you might have.
All best, Denise

Hi I was diagnosed 12 months ago, I am 67. I checked back over the last 10 years of blood tests, the results showed that elevations started 9 years ago. I am mosthy Paleo, trying to cut out dairy, wheat and sugar. We eat organic, and most supplements are the same as you have listed. Doctor has told me not to detox or anything radical, however think that was because I refused flu vaccines and take no medications. Apparently abnormal and extreme at my ages. I have days of total confusion. Try not to stress but it gets to me, energy a little lacking but I could do better, I still work full time. My biggest issue is trying to find what is right for me. The readings go up and down . Dr said this is normal, WBC went back to normal range but Lymphocytes were a little higher.

Hi, Despite what you think, it sounds like you’re doing great! I say this because you’ve been diagnosed for a year, you know that there’s been a 9-year history, and yet your readings go up and down and WBC went to normal range, and your lymphocytes were “a little higher.” You’re doing the right thing. You’re on the right path. You started your Paleo diet early, and if you stay the course, you’re going to live and be healthy for a long, long time. I don’t know what you mean by days of “total confusion.” I know during my first year of this, I was a mess. Don’t know if I’d call how I felt “confused,” instead I was terrified and depressed. If you want to write me here, or at cllalternatives @ gmail (no spaces), I’ll be glad to help with that. Writing me here, on the blog/comment section, will help other people who read all the comments. But in general, it sounds like you could be dispensing your own advice. Stay away from vaccines and prescription drugs and eat healthy. No wonder you’re doing well! Please write again!

how do you start trying to work out your own protocol? do i need to get my father to have some tests to check for any deficiencies?

Hi Jo, Yes, that’s what I do. I have frequent blood tests to see how I’m doing. Of course, the fact that your dad’s been diagnosed is reason enough to start on some of the protocol. For example, the B-17 is a good anticancer pill. Most Americans are vit D deficient, but still, getting a vit D hydroxy test is a good idea, so you know how much to take. when i was first tested, I was at 19! Very deficient. Now that marker is generally between 80 and 100.

I know it is a daunting list that I show, but I haven’t done this on my own. I’ve gone to several alternative doctors and practitioners. I take their advice (sometimes yes, sometimes no) and then after taking a new item for two or three months, I note how i feel and take a blood test for a more scientific accounting. I would start slow and refer back to this list (or a list recommended by a trusted doctor or practitioner) and keep testing and trying new things. You can look for an ACAM physician at or ask for a referral at a local independent health food store.

Don’t forget that part of the “protocol” is exercise, getting enough sleep, and stress reduction. I dont’ know if it’s the way I eat or these other choices, but I’m not nearly as nervous, tense or “crazed” as i used to be. This is also good for your health. If you have more specific questions, please write back here, or send an email to cllalternatives @ (no spaces). Best of luck in helping your dad develop a protocol that works for him! – Denise

Vitamin D aids the body in absorbing calcium. Calcium is essential for bone strength and density. Having sufficient amounts of this hormone prevents you from suffering from side effects for example depression. Vitamin D pain relieving benefits have also been discovered.

Hi Ryan,
My first experience with vitamin D3 was not so much for the CLL. It DID work on a pain problem I was having at the time (lower back). I find that the “dry” vit D3 is more effective that the gel variety, although I use both throughout the day for a total of 4000 IU. Thanks for writing!
