Update on Navarro Urine Cancer Test
"Dr. Navarro was a physician at the University of Santo Thomas in the Philippines who used Laetrile. He applied the HCG test to cancer by creating a measurement to determine the rate of cell production in international units (IU's) per cc of urine. When the rate is above normal, it signifies that the body is producing excess, unnecessary cells. Those are interpreted to be malignant."
..."The test detects the presence of brain cancer as early as 29 months before symptoms appear; 27 months for fibrosarcoma of the abdomen; 24 months for skin cancer; 12 months for cancer of the bones (metastasis from breast cancer extirpated 2 years earlier).
Currently, many cancer patients take advantage of the diagnostic accuracy of this test as an indicator of the effectiveness of their specific mode of therapy. Patients follow a simple direction for preparing a dry extract from the urine sample. The powdery extract is mailed to the Navarro Medical Clinic where the HCG testing is performed."...
Here is great follow up to The Myth of Early Cancer Detection post, which drew considerable interest and confusion. Thought the following will help shed some light. It also demonstrates how old knowledge even when based on sound scientific basis is lost only to be reinvented over and over or rejected outright
"Before you read this next article, you might want to go and take a look at a couple of articles in my February 8th, 2005 newsletter. They were on "Navarro Urine Cancer Test" and "Foundation for Advancement of Cancer Therapy (FACT)."
There are some new developments regarding testing for your level of cancer using a urine sample. First, I had a discussion about the "Navarro Urine Cancer Test" with Dr. Kindness, the owner of the lab in Cincinnati, Ohio which does this test. He told me they had modified the way the test was done by Dr. Navarro and his son in the Philippines. He said that the Navarros did not take into account the volume of the urine sample, which he claimed was important.
Instead of a single number indicating the level of human chorionic gonadotrophin (HCG), Dr. Kindness' lab is reporting to the patient the "HCG per mg of creatanine." He said this was necessary to standardize the results. The problem with this, of course, is that it does not give the patient the ability to measure the effectiveness of his/her treatment by comparing the trend in the HCG from one test to the next.
I ordered a test kit from Dr. Kindness' lab and received it a couple of days ago. It asks the patient to submit a bottle of morning urine (10 - 90 ml) by Fed Ex in a sterile urine cup. They furnish the cup with the kit, along with a plastic bag to ship it in and a Fed Ex envelope. The cost, which is not reimburseable by Medicare, is $60. No doctor's prescription or other information on diagnosis, etc. is required. According to one of my readers in New York, it takes about 2 1/2 weeks to get the results.
...THE REST OF THE STORY...
Because the information I gave you on this in February came from Ruth Sackman, the founder of FACT, I gave Ruth a call. As I expected, she had a somewhat different view. Ruth is a unique lady. She will turn 90 in September. She has more acumen than most people I have met, regardless of age. Ruth and her husband founded FACT in the early 70's and she has been counseling cancer patients about natural healing ever since on a non-profit basis. A friend of mine, Ed van Overloop, was kind enough to send me an audio tape of a talk she gave to his cancer support group in New Jersey in January this year. She is, indeed, a unique lady!
Ruth and I had an interesting conversation. Ruth has been instructing people about sending urine samples to Dr. Navarro's lab in the Philippines for over 30 years. Last year, she located Dr. Kindness and his lab in Ohio and got him to agree to do the test the same way Dr. Navarro (and now his son) had done it. She said that Dr. Kindness did not stick to his agreement about the test. He modified the way he was presenting the results and, thereby, lost the value of the test, as mentioned above. Ruth has been recommending for a couple of months that her people order their tests from Dr. Navarro in The Philippines rather than from Dr. Kindness' lab in Ohio.
Ruth sent me the instructions on how to get the HCG test done by Dr. Navarro's lab. I'm going to put those instructions AT THE END of this newsletter -- as part of the text, not an attachment.
The cost for the test is $50 US Dollars. Again, no doctor's prescription is required. Compare this to the AMAS blood test (covered in my book) which costs $135 plus shipping and requires a doctor's prescription. Also, the urine test is more accurate than the AMAS test. You send the $50 to a U.S. address and then include a Xerox copy of the money order or cashier's check in the package you send (by FedEx -- First Class mail takes from 5 weeks to forever; Global Priority Mail takes 10-12 days) to Manila in The Philippines. It takes 5-6 days to get the results IF you send them your e-mail along with the urine sample. What you send them is not a bottle of urine, but a dry packet of the sediment. The text at the end of this newsletter explains exactly how to do that. It's not hard. I've done it a couple of times.
Ruth and her small staff are still counseling cancer patients. They are available from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM (Eastern Time) weekdays at (212) 741-2790.
Now, here are the instructions for getting the Navarro Urine Cancer Test from Dr. Navarro's lab in The Philippines:
HCG Urine Immunoassay
A safe, cost-effective, non-invasive, accurate screening for Cancer
Developed in the late 1930's by the renowned oncologist, the late Dr. Manuel D. Navarro, the test detects the presence of HCG in urine. It indicates the presence of cancer cells even before signs or symptoms develop. Dr. Navarro found HCG to be elevated in all types of cancers.
The test is based on a theory proposed by Dr. Howard Beard and other researchers who contend that cancer is related to a misplaced trophoblast cell that becomes malignant in a manner similar to pregnancy in that they both secrete HCG. As a consequence, a measure of the amount of HCG found in the blood or urine is also a measure of the degree of malignancy. The higher the number, the greater the severity of the cancer.
Urine, as opposed to blood or serum, is the preferred specimen for the test. In 1980, Papapetrou and co-authors reported the correctness of the urine specimen to be used in HCG Immunoassay. In 32 proven cancer cases, the immunoassay test gave 31 positive results using urine while only 12 positive results were reported using blood. HCG has been found to undergo glycosylation in the liver as it travels in the hepatic circulation. Thus, the HCG molecule cannot be detected. The molecule does not undergo this process in the kidney and therefore the molecule remains intact in the urine.
The test detects the presence of brain cancer as early as 29 months before symptoms appear; 27 months for fibrosarcoma of the abdomen; 24 months for skin cancer; 12 months for cancer of the bones (metastasis from breast cancer extirpated 2 years earlier).
Currently, many cancer patients take advantage of the diagnostic accuracy of this test as an indicator of the effectiveness of their specific mode of therapy. Patients follow a simple direction for preparing a dry extract from the urine sample. The powdery extract is mailed to the Navarro Medical Clinic where the HCG testing is performed.

Directions for Urine Sample Preparation
(1) From an early morning urine, take 50 cc (1.7 oz.) and add 200 cc (7 oz.) of acetone (can be purchased from hardware store or pharmacy) and 5 cc (.2 oz) of alcohol, either rubbing or ethyl. Stir and mix well. (2) Let it stand in the refrigerator for 2 hours until sediment is formed. Throw off about half of the urine-acetone mixture without losing any sediment. Filter the remainder through a coffee filter or laboratory filter paper. (3) When filtration is over, dry the filter with its sediment. Fold and wrap in aluminum foil. Send by FedEx (First Class mail takes from 5 weeks to forever; Global Priority Mail takes 10-12 days) to the Navarro Medical Clinic (address listed above) including a Xerox copy of the money order or cashier's check with the patient's name, address, sex, age and a brief clinical history and/or diagnosis. Also, be SURE to include your e-mail address. This will speed up your receipt of the results by at least 4-6 weeks. (4) PRECAUTION: No sexual contact for 12 days for female patients before collecting the urine sample. For males, no sexual contact for 18-24 hours before collecting the urine sample. DO NOT SEND URINE IF THE PATIENT IS PREGNANT.
Send the $50 (money order or cashier's check) to: Erlinda N. Saurez 631 Peregrine Drive Palatine, IL 60067-7005 USA
Please allow 4-6 weeks for test result delivery if they have to be sent by mail to the USA, Canada or Europe. (HINT: Send it by FedEx and give the lab your e-mail address so they can send you the results the same day the test is done.)
The HCG Immunity Link By Ruth Sackman
Dr. Howard Beard, a biochemist and cancer patient, found that he could monitor his cancer by doing the human chorionic gonadotrophin (HCG) immunoassay to determine how actively his body was producing unnecessary cells or controlling cell production at a normal level. This HCG test is used to determine pregnancy, a natural process, whereby the body is producing excess cells for the development of a fetus. Dr. Beard's theory was that if HCG levels rose but no fetus was developing, then abnormal cell production was taking place which, to him, signified a cancer problem. Dr. Manuel Navarro agreed with this philosophy and established a measurement to diagnose cancer. A tumor would not be clinically evident immediately but in time might manifest in men as well as women.
Two scientists with the West London Hospital, Helen Davies and S. F. Contractor were interested in one of the most mysterious biological processes – how the body knew when birth was ready at the end of nine months gestation. They reported in the British journal Nature that they believe birth is really a process of rejection initiated by the body's own defense system. The reason this rejection is controlled is because above normal amounts of HCG appear in the mother's urine during pregnancy. HCG, they believe, prevents the mother's sentry cells (lymphocytes) from recognizing the foreign protein (fetus). The HCG levels remain high until just before birth when a drop in HCG triggers the rejection of the fetus and birth occurs. Without such recognition, rejection cannot take effect, ergo, when the HCG titre is above normal on the HCG test, cancer cell rejection does not take place.
Therefore, Dr. Beard's theory of measuring HCG levels has a sound scientific basis. Low levels of HCG allow the body to reject abnormal protein just as it rejects the fetus, and high levels interfere with the body's ability to build the lymphocytes necessary to effect rejection of cancer cells.
This theory validates Dr. Beard's conclusion that the HCG measurement found in the urine was a competent system to diagnose and monitor cancer cell activity."
