DCA – Sodium Dichloroacetate

Is this the cure for cancer that they don’t tell you about.

It’s been around for quite a while, but because the pharmaceutical companies can’t make any money out of it as a patent can’t be applied due to the fact that it is is a molecule, they aren’t interested in providing funding and research.

Dr Michelakis and Archer of the University of Alberta seem to be the only ones that are doing any research at all into this, but find it hard to get the funding needed for complete studies.

You can read all about it at and can purchase it from

Its seems remarkable how people are using to cure brain tumours and breast cancer as well as lymphoma.

Unfortunately there doesn’t seem to be anyone who has tried it for Myeloma. I don’t mind being the first to find out it cures that as well though, so I may even consider this as an option for me. What have I got to lose. I’m certainly going to have a discussion with my medical team about it, to see what they say.


  1. If you are considering DCA you should also think of combining it with Vidaza. I will start doing so tomorrow for 12 weeks using Vidaza at half the dose used for Leukemia and DCA at half the dose I used successfully for two years for my Stage IV Colon Cancer. If it works as I hope it will I expect 90% or more tumor reduction.

  2. Don't know much about it but I saw for the first time a non toxic possible treatment with thousands of years of human use under it's belt. It was in the news very recently, using Silibinin , from the milk thistle plant. It's the only non toxic thing I've seen that stopped human lung cancer in rodents without poisoning them. I haven't checked to see if it crosses the blood brain barrier. Might work with DCA and the Vidaza? For colon cancer robmx, check out curcumin from the turmeric root, it's available pure at health food stores. It eliminates polyps per Johns Hopkins phase 1 human trial, in 6 months polyps were 50% gone and remaining ones were 60% smaller. Highly absorbed in the intestines. The 5 patients has familial polyp syndrome, many many polyps.

  3. Thanks for the info, I will look into those as well. I've used curcumin for pain relief before, but haven't researched that much in as a treatment for Myeloma. Silibinin,sounds very interesting from quick search that I have done. Many thanks.

  4. Vidaza is a DNA Methylation Inhibitor.DNA Methylation turns off genes. In my case I am interested in turning back on the SLC5A8 gene which is a sodium transporter. DCA is Sodium Dichloracetate and a working SLC5A8 gene will facilitate it getting into my cancer cells. Vidaza also turns back on a couple of colon cancer suppressor genes which may help.

    As I understand it my colon cancer has many cells, maybe half, where the SLC5A8 gene is OK and that would explain why initially DCA shrunk my tumors 30% in the first two months and then 25% in the next two months. After that DCA only maintained a stable condition for the next 14 months at which time I had to stop because of the side affect of Peripheral Neurapathy. That has subsided over the last year and with Vidaza I will be able to use a lower dose of DCA.

  5. And I should add that this should work for other cancers since they also suffer from a malfunctioning Mitochondria and turned off SLC5A8. DCA fixes the Mitochondria causing the cancer cell to die normally thru apoptosis and Vidaza fixes the SLC5A8 gene which facilitates the DCA getting into the cancer cells.

  6. thanks rob that sounds good, another one for me to consider :-)

  7. rob keep me informed how you are getting on and good luck. I hope it works really well for you. You can email me directly if you wish at

  8. Second infusion this morning. Vidaza, a chemo, seems not to cause any side affects at half a dose at least not so far. Five more to go this next week and then three weeks off before seven more days of infusion. Taking DCA at 2/3rds of a gram a day.

  9. Hi,

    my uncle was diagnosed with grade III astrocytoma (glioma) in the right occipitotemporal region of the brain, following a solitary seizure attack in july 2009. the tumor was excised on 11 jan 2010 and histological reports revealed grade III astrocytoma. following the surgery, he was treated with IMRT radiation (novalis) and timazolamide. in jan 2011, the mri revealed contrast enhancement of a very small area in the surgical site. subsequent GHA scan also showed slight uptake in the same area. presently, we gave stereotactic radiotherapy (novalis) with effect from 3rd feb consisting of 5 cycles.
    on 17th july 2011, again an mri scan was done which showed a slight activity in the anterior aspect of the excised tumor cavity apart from the posterior activity already detected. We started him on avastin in October 2011 thinking the tumor may have progressed to GBM. He has responded well to 7 doses at the interval of 15 daysI was wondering if we could start him on DCA with avastin.
    thanks and regards

    1. Hi,
      Please see my blog post thanks


    2. didn't see this activity. Sorry for late response. All I know about DCA has to do with my colon cancer but the only clinical trial was for GBM at the University of Alberta. Google that with DCA and you will get their DCA page.

      I will start my last seven session with Vidaza and DCA on March 1st. So far no side affects from Vidaza so I am upping to a full dose. CT end of March. So far so good, I am still alive and feeling fine.

      Have no idea if DCA and Avastin if that is what you meant. I am using Vidaza.

  10. Did you check the medicor cancer centre in Canada, they have case studies using DCA, did not find anything with myeloma, but they report about treatment with DCA. Note: I have nothing to do with them!! :-))

  11. Hi,
    Just found this blog while researching DCA for AML. Nice blog!!

    For an overall cure to cancer, please look into the following...don't just take my word for it :)

    - GcMAF (Europe). This group also provide DCA, that's how I became aware of DCA.
    - 714X (Canada)
    - Sir Jason Winters herbal tea (high doses of 10-14 cups per day!)
    - B17/amygdalin/apricot kernels

    All the best,

  12. I really like it when folks come together and share views.

    Great site, keep it up!

  13. If you have attempted to have sex recently and failed the next time could be
    an anxious moment and the more you think about it the more you are likely to fail again.
    This is something that doctors deal with regularly and are trained to find necessary
    solutions. Theoretically erectile dysfunction can affect a man at
    any age; though the fact is that young men experience it less frequently than elder.

  18. Hello
    Re cancer cure using DCA Sodium Dichloroacetate, there appears to be a number of web site now offering this.

    I have bought from them all for myself, what concerns me is that according to the information on the internet all of this comes from China and while that may be no problem China has had a lot of bad press.

    Finally I did find a company who produce their own the problem was that another company with a with a similar name is selling this at a ridiculous price.

    I was told that it could be purchased from Sigma Aldrich but this is strictly and was told this was only sold to business.

    The people who I now use and who manufacture their own in Europe is the hyphen in the middle is important as without it you get to a bogus site.

    For anyone who needs to obtain this like myself I hope this helps, and the price is good too.
