Causes & Symptoms of Esophageal Cancer

There is a higher rate of esophageal cancer among men, than women. Most people who are diagnosed with esophageal cancer are over the age of 60. China, South America, France, Iran, and Africa have the highest rates of esophageal cancer.

Risk factors for esophageal cancer include:

  • tobacco use
  • alcohol use
  • betel quid use
  • history of GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease)
  • tylosis
  • achalasia
  • Plummer-Vinson syndrome
  • history of cancer in the trachea
  • radiation exposure
  • underweight / overweight
  • family history

Other possible risk factors include:

  • diets low in vegetables and fruit
  • eating red meat
  • eating processed meats
  • genetic mutations
  • CF (cystic fibrosis)

Some of the following symptoms can be caused by things other than esophageal cancer, so it is important to visit your physician for a proper diagnosis.

Symptoms of esophageal cancer include:

  • weight loss
  • pain when swallowing
  • indigestion / heartburn
  • pain in throat or chest
  • loss of appetite
  • regurgitating undigested food
  • nausea and/or vomiting
  • cough
  • hoarseness
  • hiccups

Who Gets Esophageal CancerWho Gets Esophageal Cancer

People who use tobacco excessively are more at risk for developing esophageal cancer. Men are more commonly diagnosed with esophageal cancer than women. Risk rises with age.

Esophageal Cancer PrognosisPrognosis if You Have Esophageal Cancer

Often, cancer of the esophagus is not diagnosed until the later stages. This is reflected in the 5-year survival rates for esophageal cancer. The earlier it is diagnosed the better the prognosis.

5-Year Survival Rates for Esophageal Cancer:

  • Stage I — 40 percent
  • Stage II / III — 21 percent
  • Stage IV — 4 percent

Keep in mind, these statistics do not separate adenocarcinoma, squamous cell carcinomas or other more rare types of esophageal cancer. That said, patients with adenocarcinomas tend to have a slightly better outlook.

Treatments for esophageal cancer vary depending on several factors including stage, grade, and type of cancer along with the age and the overall health of the patient.

Conventional medicine’s main types of treatment for esophageal cancer include:

  • Surgery
  • Chemotherapy
  • Radiation
  • Targeted therapy
  • Palliative therapy

Esophageal Cancer ProtocolsProtocols: How to Treat Esophageal Cancer

The recommendation for esophageal cancer includes two combined primary protocols: Cellect-Budwig and the High RF Frequency . The High RF Frequency Protocol is a great immune builder and the Cellect-Budwig Protocol is effective in reverting cancer cells back to normal cells.

Other Options:

Warning: Dangerous tumors or completely, or partially blocked esophagus, stomach, or colon

If a person’s digestive tract is already partially or completely blocked, or if there are dangerous tumors in the, esophagus, stomach or colon, there are two options to deal with the cancer.

The first and best option is to use the treatment which deals with dangerous tumors. The treatment is overseen by medical professionals and is actually a complete cancer treatment, so you do not need to use any of the treatments on this page.
Dangerous Tumors (or blocked esophagus, stomach, or colon)

Second, an alternative cancer treatment protocol has been designed specifically for cancer patients who have blockages or otherwise cannot eat or digest foods. If you use this protocol, also read the rest of this article to understand other issues. Here is the article on the special treatment:
Overnight Cure For Cancer

Understanding esophageal cancer

The first thing a esophageal cancer or stomach cancer patient needs to understand is that the “cure rate” of orthodox medicine for these two kinds of cancer is virtually zero. Even the “cure rate” for alternative cancer treatments is significantly lower than for most other kinds of cancer.

The reason the cure rate is so low, in my opinion, is because of the damage caused by surgery and chemotherapy to the esophagus.

Surgery on the esophagus can damage the body’s ability to digest foods and extract the nutrients from foods.

Also, chemotherapy is known to damage the lining of the esophagus, thus interfering with the body’s ability to process the nutrients in foods and supplements. Chemotherapy kills “fast growing cells” and there are many fast growing cells in the esophagus, stomach and colon.

Because the body cannot digest foods properly, and cannot extract nutrients from the foods and supplements (because of surgery and chemotherapy), the non-cancerous cells are not able to get proper nutrition.

When you think about the esophagus, colon, and stomach cancer you need to think about three different concepts:
1) The cancer cells need nutrients from key foods and supplements in order to be killed,
2) The non-cancerous cells need different nutrients to keep the cancer patient alive,
3) The immune system needs nutrients to be effective in helping get rid of cancer cells safely.

Surgery, radiation and chemotherapy damage the ability of the body to properly digest the foods they eat and thus their cancer cells are not adequately killed, their non-cancerous cells are not adequately protected and their immune system has not been adequately nourished.

In addition, due primarily to surgery, many advanced esophageal, colon, and stomach cancer patients cannot eat very much and what they can eat is not digested properly.

One of the key solutions to these problems is “electromedicine,” meaning very gentle electrical devices which are designed to get rid of cancer cells without the need of nutrients.

There are five cases where gentle electromedicine treatments would be highly suggested if one can afford it for the treatment of cancer. The five cases are:
1) The patient cannot eat very much,
2) The patient has significant problems digesting their foods,
3) The patient cannot extract nutrients from the foods/supplements they take (e.g. due to significant chemotherapy),
4) The cancer is fast-spreading,
5) The cancer has spread throughout the body.

Whether the cancer patient uses electromedicine or not, they need to take extra doses of nutrients, namely high quality, liquid nutrients.

Remember, liquid vitamins and minerals do not need to be digested.

One excellent example is Vibe by Eniva (in the orange bottle). This is an excellent liquid vitamin and mineral supplement and can be added to any alternative cancer treatment.


Products such as Cellect, which is part of the Cellect-Budwig protocol, contain critical supplements for cancer patients. The super-nutrient product Cellect may be made into a shake so as to be absorbed easily by the body. Recipes for consumption of Cellect can be found under It can also be taken by mixing it into oatmeal, applesauce etc.

In summary, let us look at the unique problems in treating esophageal cancer.

First, there must be some way to get rid of cancer cells independent of nutrition. This is critical because the stomach and/or colon are not able to digest all of the nutrients that are put into the body.

The solution to this problem is “electromedicine,” which will be discussed below.

Second, also because of the lack of nutrients absorbed by the stomach and/or colon, special supplements are needed which do not require as much digestion as other products.

The best solution to this key issue is special nutrients, especially in liquid form.

All three cancer treatments discussed on this page contain BOTH electromedicine and super-nutrients.

As a side note, if your surgeon wants to “debulk” your esophagus of cancer cells and tumors, keep this in mind: colon cancer and stomach cancer patients have a lower cure rate than other cancer patients precisely because surgery and chemotherapy damages the ability of their esophagus, stomach and colon to properly digest foods. Do the math.

However, having said that, if your esophagus, stomach,or colon is blocked, or are in severe danger of being blocked, then some surgery may be required for immediate survival.

Treatment #1: Cellect-Budwig with High RF Frequency Generator / Plasma Amplifier and Fucoidan

The Cellect-Budwig protocol includes the High RF Frequency Generator with Plasma Amplifier electromedicine device. Let me start with the electromedicine device.

Electromedicine (e.g. the High RF Frequency Generator with Plasma Amplifier) is required if you can afford it because electromedicine (e.g. frequency generators) does not require the colon or stomach to be able to process nutrients to get rid of cancer cells.

I am going to repeat that because it is the most important concept an esophagus, colon, or stomach cancer patient can understand:

Electromedicine (e.g. the High RF Frequency Generator with Plasma Amplifier) isrequired if you can afford it because electromedicine (e.g. frequency generators)does not require the colon or stomach to be able to process nutrients to get rid of cancer cells.

This protocol includes the High RF Frequency Generator with Plasma Amplifier, which by itself costs about $4,700. It is by far the most effective replica of Royal Rife’s most effective cancer treatment – the plasma device. Today, these devices are commonly called “frequency generators.”

The Cellect-Budwig costs about $600 a month. If you cannot afford these two items then the next treatment (i.e. Treatment #2) costs about half as much as this protocol. Treatment #3 is even less than Treatment #2.

Treatments #1, #2 and #3 all combine electromedicine and super-nutrients.

The reason this protocol is recommended is because it does not depend AT ALL on the ability to digest foods to safely get rid of cancer cells.

Nothing in orthodox medicine can be compared to alternative medicine electromedicine protocols. The High RF Frequency Generator with Plasma Amplifier is so gentle the patient frequently doesn’t even know it is turned on.

There are two different models of the High RF Frequency Generator. The more powerful model is the High RF Frequency Generator with Plasma Amplifier, which is a plasma device with 207-Watts (peak) of power. This is an amazing cancer protocol by itself.

The second version is the High RF Frequency Generator with a 15-Watt linear amplifier. This is an excellent protocol for esophageal cancer. Its cost is only about $2,500. It is a good alternative for those who cannot afford the High RF Frequency Generator with Plasma Amplifier. This is used in Treatment #2.

A frequency generator is able to revert cancer cells into normal cells by killing the microbes inside the cancer cells, thus it does not cause swelling or inflammation. This is the safest possible way to cure cancer. If you don’t understand what I just said see this article:
What Causes Cancer

Articles on frequency generators commonly recommend alkaline water as a supplement to electromedicine. The Cellect-Budwig protocol will take care of this issue so alkalized water is not necessary unless you already have the equipment.

For a vendor (use the High RF Frequency Generator with Plasma Amplifier), see:

Where to Buy the ICRF “Research Model” High RF Frequency Generator and Plasma Tube Amplifier:

Copy and paste the above website address into your web browser’s address field. Go to the vendor’s website that sells the High RF Frequency Generator and oscillator plasma amplifier which can broadcast high RF frequencies using a plasma ray tube antenna. You’ll be able to see photographs of the generator and amplifiers including full specifications and pricing at their website. They offer excellent technical support.

The Cellect-Budwig protocol is one of the most potent of the alternative cancer treatments. Because much of this protocol is liquid or powder (which is put in a drink) much of this protocol can be used by almost any cancer patient.

The Cellect-Budwig has expert support available from cancer researcher Mike Vrentas. In fact, the person who supports this protocol, Mike Vrentas, is also an expert in the use of the High RF Frequency Generator with Plasma Amplifier and can support both protocols. Thus you only have to deal with one person on this protocol!

The Cellect-Budwig treatment is actually a combination of several synergistic treatments and will not cause any type of swelling or inflammation in the digestive tract. The treatment works very quickly and is very effective because almost all of it can be absorbed or digested. One of the reasons Cellect works so well on esophageal cancer is that it is in powder form allowing for easy absorption after being mixed with a liquid.

At least four scoops of Cellect a day or more should be used, though Mike can tell you exactly how many scoops a day you need. Remember the person cannot digest many of the foods they eat, so higher than normal doses may be needed.

The Budwig Protocol is also part of this protocol, as are some other nutritional substances.

Here is a link to this protocol:

Treatment #2: The Rife-Beck Protocol

Like Treatment #1 and Treatment #3, this protocol is a combination of electromedicine and nutrition. This protocol, by itself, contains six different cancer treatments.

In this protocol, the High RF Frequency Generator linear amplifier is used as both a Royal Rife protocol and a Bob Beck Protocol, thus it is not necessary to purchase anything for the Bob Beck Protocol except perhaps the Magnetic Pulser.

The Beck Protocol eliminates all microbes from the bloodstream. When all microbes are eliminated from the bloodstream the immune system is supercharged far beyond any other method to build the immune system. The immune system, can, by itself, cure cancer if it is freed from the bondage of the two pounds of microbes in everyone’s body.

This discovery was accidentally made by an AIDS research, Dr. Bob Beck, who had a PhD in physics.

This treatment is actually stronger at building the immune system than Treatment #1 above, but it is not as strong at directly getting rid of the cancer cells (though in a few months the supercharged immune system will take care of the cancer cells).

This protocol also includes some amazing nutritional products which can independently cure cancer. There is also a lot of synergy built into this protocol. Here is the actual protocol:
Rife-Beck Protocol

Treatment #3: Bob Beck Protocol with the MSM/CD Protocol and Fucoidan

Advanced esophageal cancer patients should do whatever it takes to use one of the above protocols. But for those who are not too advanced, this third option is a viable cancer treatment, it just takes a little longer to become effective.

The Bob Beck Protocol started out as a cure for AIDS, but ended up not only being a cure for AIDS, but also for cancer.

This treatment is much stronger at building the immune system than Treatment #1 above and eventually the immune system will get rid of the cancer cells.

However, the Fucoidan makes up for the temporary weakness in the Bob Beck Protocol because it starts to get rid of cancer cells immediately at therapeutic doses (16 ounces a day, spread out into several small doses).

The Bob Beck protocol can be very inexpensive, especially if you know someone who can build the two key devices in this protocol, the Blood Purifier and the Magnetic Pulser. The Bob Beck article explains how to get the information needed to build these devices.

But for those who can afford it, commercial versions of these two devices are available.

In this protocol the Bob Beck equipment is used, rather than the High RF Frequency Generator with Plasma Amplifier. For example, it includes the Sota Blood Purifier and Sota Magnetic Pulser and a couple of other things. This protocol costs less than either of the High RF Frequency Generator devices, but if you already have a High RF Frequency Generator it can be used as a Bob Beck device if you use the anti-microbial protocol every day (see the Rife-Beck protocol for instructions on how to do this).

The MSM/CD is a superb alternative cancer treatment, though it is not as strong as the more expensive protocols, such as the ones above. But it is a very good protocol and was designed based on a perfect understanding of how to safely cure cancer (it is a “little brother” of the Overnight Cure for Cancer)!

The third item in this protocol is Fucoidan, from a specific vendor, whose name I am not allowed to use online because of FDA persecution of vendors. Fucoidan, by itself, is a very good treatment for cancer. But the key for this protocol is that it provides its nutrients in liquid form.

In this protocol, Vibe liquid is also strongly recommended, Hopefully, three TABLEspoons a day spread throughout the day.

Here is the main Bob Beck Protocol article:
Bob-Beck Protocol

Here is the article on the MSM/CD protocol:
MSM/CD Protocol

Here is the article on Fucoidan:

Avoid meat, sugar, etc.

Foods that contain absolutely no fiber, such as meat, sugar, processed flour, etc. should be avoided.

“Meat: Consumption of meat is strongly suspected to be conducive to cancer. Dr. John Berg and associates of the US National Cancer Institute and Tohoku University School of Medicine (Japan), studied 179 colon cancer patients and 357 non-cancer patients, all Japanese of varying origin and background, and found that consumption of beef was the only factor common to all the cancer patients.” “cooked meat causes damage to all vital organs, and it must be clearly understood that in order to prevent cancer or reverse it, these organs must be capable of reasonable function.”

There are other reasons for not eating meat (e.g. they destroy the anti-cancer enzymes trypsin and chymotrypsin), but the main reason for not eating meat is that it is interfering with your cancer treatment. Any food that does not contribute to your cancer treatment is interfering with your cancer treatment.

How to Prevent Esophageal CancerHow to Prevent Esophageal Cancer

There are several factors for esophageal cancer that are beyond our control. That said, there are also lifestyle choices you can make that can limit your risk of esophageal cancers including not using tobacco or alcohol, and even more so, using them together, as the risk factor grows when they are used together.

The immune system contains many different types of “cells,” however, only a handful of these white blood cells actually kill cancer cells. It should be the intent of a person with cancer to focus on treatments that quickly increase the count of the cancer-killing white blood cells.

The second thing to note is that building the immune system is sometimes not the highest priority of those with cancer. People with only a few months to live should definitely take immune system building products — and focus more on the nutrients, foods and products that kill cancer cells directly, such as the Grape Cure, Noni Juice, Essiac Tea, etc. or revert the cancer cells into normal cells.

With rare exceptions, it is highly advisable to use natural substances to deal with the immune system to treat cancer, no matter what stage the cancer patient is in.

Immune System HealthImmune System Health

A healthy immune system remains your body’s best defense. Not only is a weak immune system a major reason patients have cancer — and cancer itself can further weaken the immune system.

Beta glucans help regulate the immune system, making it more efficient. In addition, beta glucans stimulate white blood cells (lymphocytes) that bind to tumors or viruses and release chemicals to destroy it.

Beta Glucan has been approved in Japan, Australia, South Korea, and Taiwan as an immunoadjuvant therapy for cancer. In fact, helping with cancer is just the beginning with Beta Glucan. There have thousands of studies showing the product can protect against infections, lower your cholesterol, lower blood sugar, reduce stress, increase your antibody production, heal wounds, help radiation burns, overcome mercury-induced immunosuppression (like Thimerosal, used as a preservative in vaccines), help with diabetes, and even naturally prevent metastasis (or the spreading of your cancer).

Harvard Medical School suggests following general good-health guidelines is the single best step you can take toward keeping your immune system strong and healthy:

  • Don’t smoke.
  • Eat a diet high in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, and low in saturated fat.
  • Exercise regularly.
  • Maintain a healthy weight.
  • Control your blood pressure.
  • If you drink alcohol, drink only in moderation.
  • Get adequate sleep.
  • Take steps to avoid infection, such as washing your hands frequently and cooking meats thoroughly.
  • Get regular medical screening tests for people in your age group and risk category.

Healthy DietHealthy Diet

Your diet plays a role in a healthy immune system. The top vitamins your immune system needs to perform include:

  • Vitamin C — helps to repair and regenerate tissues and aids in the absorption of iron
  • Vitamin E — a powerful antioxidant that helps your body fight off infection
  • Vitamin B6 — supports adrenal function and is necessary for key metabolic processes
  • Vitamin A — aids immune function and helps provide a barrier against infections
  • Vitamin D — modulates cell growth, promotes neuromuscular and immune function, and reduces inflammation
  • Folate — key in development of red blood cells (a lack of Folate can make the body susceptible to cancer)
  • Iron — helps your body carry oxygen to cells
  • Selenium — slows the body’s overactive responses to certain aggressive forms of cancer
  • Zinc — slows the immune response and control inflammation in your body
