NOTE: The following post was written in 2004 9 years before 2013, when Dr. Weeks’ medical license was unjustly stolen by the Washington State medical board because (in the opinion of Dr. Weeks and his lawyers and his patients) – click HERE for our side of the story his care was SUPERIOR to the standard of care. That was an embarrassment to conventional oncologists. Appeals to the unjust medical board administrative process (ignoring rules of evidence and neglecting due process) fell of deaf judicial ears and rather than bankrupt his family in continuing to fight the medical board (a kangaroo administrative court acting on behalf of Corporate Medicine – the Medical Industrial Complex) Dr. Weeks stopped fighting for justice and serves clients instead through Alternative Health Advocates, a non-medical service which offers life-saving educational and advocacy services. Therefore, please read the following knowing that Dr. Weeks himself no longer provides the actual medical services but refers clients to Corrective Cancer Care™ caregivers as appropriate.

The Problem with Conventional Cancer Treatment
Nowhere does modern medicine fail patients so much as in oncology when the pathologist, after having only examined a tiny cluster of stained cells under a microscope, presumes to give a diagnosis as well as a prognosis (i.e. “This person has 6 months to live.”) without ever having met and listened to the person from whom those cells were biopsied! Death sentences are pronounced every day by doctors who never inquired about the patient’s capacity for wholehearted change, reserves of determination and will to live. Death sentences are pronounced without an intelligent assessment of who the person is at her or his core, what their ability is for lifestyle changes and what motivations can doctor and patient focus on in order to enhance vitality!
Hence, after looking only at a tiny physical aspect of the whole (a cluster of cells) the inexcusable medical crime of arrogance and ignorance is perpetrated upon a trusting (“patient”) soul who leaves the doctors office branded a “terminal cancer patient”. That is the cruelest blow. And it is wholly unnecessary! So, before you come for Corrective Cancer Care to the Weeks Clinic on lovely Whidbey Island, ask yourself: “Am I a cancer patient, or am I a person with cancer”. (We only treat the latter at the Weeks Clinic, although we can help the former become the latter!)
What is Unique about Corrective Care at the Weeks Clinic?
Let’s start with the most important piece of information about cancer care in our practice: Dr. Weeks does not treat cancer. Instead, Dr. Weeks treats people… (many of whom happen to have too many uncontrolled cancer cells).
Why is this distinction important? It is important because, of all human diseases, cancer is the illness which is most powerfully influenced by what the individual brings to the table: her or his will forces, spirit, and most importantly, her or his reason for living.
Dr. Weeks utilizes a comprehensive three-fold “corrective” methodology in treating people with cancer. People who come for cancer care at the Weeks Clinic for Corrective Medicine and Psychiatry are offered this three-fold approach to corrective cancer care so let’s look at the three legged stool which supports patients receiving Corrective Cancer Care:
First leg: we strive to take down the “Cancer Welcome” sign by correcting the environment (both external and internal) which is “opening the door” to cancer. This includes correcting and reinforcing the foundation of your health and vitality: Nutrition, Exercise and Thought Process (the “NET” – see below) which addresses, but is not limited to, optimizing diet, exercise habits, sleep patterns and lifestyle issues.
Second leg: we strive to enhance the immune system through identifying and correcting imbalances on all four levels of human existence: the material body (using nutritional and biochemical interventions), the etheric body (using lifestyle and habit modifications), the emotional body (using practices for enhancing mastery of mood “CorThot”) and the spiritual body (using practices for enhancing one’s humanity and relationship with the divine).
Third leg: we strive eliminate cancer cells and tumors using the best of conventional and innovative medicine. However, before we start any chemotherapeutic treatments, in order to minimize the classic and horrible side-effects, while at the same time, enhancing targeted cancer killing, we do CHEMOSENSITIVITY TESTING. (Similar clinical rationale as the culture and sensitivity testing your doctor did before selecting an antibipotic for your last urinary tract infection!)
For culture and sensitivity for solid tumors, have your doctor send a sample of cancerous tissue to Dr. Robert Nagourney, M.D. at Rational Therapeutics Lab in California. Website: http://www.rational-t.com/rational-difference/treatments.aspx
For culture and sensitivity for circulating tumors, send the blood to Dr. Lothar Prix at Biofocus lab in Germany

Metaphorically, think of the cancer patient and his or her doctor as facing the challenge of staying afloat in a sinking rowboat in the middle of the ocean. Of course, we need to bail out the water as fast as possible (this is analogous to the Third leg of the stool above: killing the cancer with chemo, radiation or surgery) but we also need to look for and plug any holes in the boat (this is analogous to the First and Second leg of the stool)
As for killing cancer cells, everyone knows the severe limitations of our conventional best efforts- we have been losing that war on cancer for 40 years. However, since the 1950’s Dr. Perez Garcia in Mexico has pioneered the use of Insulin Potentiated ChemoTherapy (IPT) in the treatment of cancer which his patients described as “side-effect free chemotherapy”. The mechanism of action of IPT is well understood to render cancer cells more vulnerable to chemotoxic drugs, which are typically used in 1/10th the conventionally prescribed doses – thereby accomplishing a therapy which is “hard of cancer and easy on the patient”.
We recommend staging of cancer before starting treatment (PET scan, MRI, etc.) and standard means for assessing cancer activity during and after Corrective Cancer Care. A doctor can’t treat what he can’t measure. Of course, we strive always to serve the patient and therefore, we recommend surgery or radiation or changes in chemotherapy dosage and agents where appropriate. Fortunately, for many but certainly not all of our patients, the three-fold corrective approach outlined above typically requires minimal if any conventional treatments; however they are strongly recommended, if and when Dr. Weeks thinks that conventional treatments would be more beneficial to the patient.
At the Weeks Clinic for Corrective Medicine and Psychiatry, we treated people who are struggling with all types of cancer.
Modalities we have used included:
- Reinforcing the will to live with CorThot and reflection (“Survive and Thrive!”) Removing fear and self-defeating thoughts
- Strengthening the lifestyle “NET” (nutrition, exercise, thought) – see below
- Eating the optimal cancer diet HERE with the optimal attitude (gratitude)
- Centsible anti-inflammatory protocols whole crushed organic seeds,
- Centisbile immune-enhancement protocols
- Remedying cancer STEM cells (lectures available here BradWeeksMD)
- Re-educating cancer TUMOR cells
- Low dose targeted insulin potentiation therapy (LDIPT) Note: Dr. Weeks is one of 3 medical doctors in North America certified to teach medical doctors about IPT www.iptforcancer.com
- High-Dose Vitamin C IVs and oral liposomal vitamin C
- Immune Enhancing IVs
- Nutritional IVs
- Heavy Metal Detoxification IVs and powerful oral protocols
- Corrective Oral Supplementation Protocols (Seeds of Eden, Nanoemulsified Hemp oil, Berberine, Quercetin, Alpha Lipoic Acid, CoQ10, etc.)
- Prescription medications (www.lowdosenaltrexone.com )
- Innovative chemosensitivity laboratory testing RGCC and BioFocus and Rational Therapeutics
At the Weeks Clinic for Corrective Health Care, we reinforce your Lifestyle “NET” (Nutrition, Exercise and Thought process) in the following manner:
NUTRITION is not just what you eat, it is everything that you take into your being. What goes into your mouth? What food are you eating and how are you preparing it? What is in your water? What do you allow into your ears? What music are you listening to and is it nourishing your soul? What is seeping in through your skin? What cancer-causing substances are you putting on your skin or under your arms? What environmental toxins are you withstanding? What is carcinogenic in your environment: Cell phone radiation? Power lines radiation? Microwave tower radiation? DECT phone radiation? And, most importantly, what is intoxicating your mind? What habitual thoughts do you allow to sulk around in your brain? What emotional guilt is undermining your sense of self-worth and will to live? Eat the ANTI-INFLAMMATORY diet.
EXERCISE means how you metabolize or “do justice to” that which you bring into your life: Exercise is not just physical exercise (walking 30 minute a day etc.), but also how you digest and honor the food you have taken in as well as all the other the commitments you have undertaken. Best option is to “get entirely out of breath at least twice a day”.
THOUGHT PROCESS describes the opportunity to manage your state and attitude so that you optimize your health and well-being as well as your human potential. Our answer to the age-old question of whether the glass is half-empty or half-full is quite simply that the glass is always overflowing! Thoreau wrote; “Enough is a feast”. How fortunate we all are all the time and yet the human condition include grief and sadness! Dr. L.F.C. Mees wrote a classic book: “Blessed by Illness” in which illness serves as an instructor, a tenderizer, rendering one more humane. There are gifts and opportunities everywhere in life and we at the Weeks Clinic have come to understand that, while episodes of pain and injury are unavoidable in life, suffering is always optional. “CorThot™” is an immune-enhancing state of being which we teach to those interested in managing their thoughts and state of mind optimally.
About the Practice:
Dr. Weeks has utilized IPT since July, 2002 when he was trained by Dr. Steven Ayre in Chicago. Dr. Ayre was a close colleague of the Perez Garcia medical family in Mexico whose patriarch invented IPT. Since finding that this type of chemotherapy to be very effective and non-toxic, Dr. Weeks subsequently qualified to be an instructor in IPT in order to train other doctors interested in this 50 year old “innovative” treatment technique. Today, Dr. Weeks is one of only 30 medical doctors in America qualified to train others in this technique. Furthermore, Dr. Weeks is the only IPT medical doctor in America who is both fully qualified in psychiatry and an instructor in IPT who proactively addresses the deeper, critically important mind-body factors which contribute to “dis-ease”. You are not just a physical body: therefore, it shouldn’t surprise you to remember that your cancer treatment requires more than simply medicine, surgery or radiation in order for you to “survive and thrive”.
In addition to practicing corrective cancer care for people challenged by cancer, we at the Weeks Clinic for Corrective Medicine and Psychiatry also offer a comprehensive corrective approach for patients struggling with other chronic, degenerative diseases including neurological (multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, stroke) metabolic (cardiovascular, thyroid imbalances, diabetes, menopause, “maleopause”) and emotional or psychiatric challenges (schizophrenia, manic depression, depression and anxiety disorders).

Corrective Cancer Care (CCC) with Insulin Potentiation Therapy (IPT)`
Losing the War on Cancer
All evidence suggests that using conventional cancer care (chemotherapy, surgery and radiation) we have lost the war on cancer. Increasingly, when doctors get cancer, even oncologists and other medical doctors refuse to take the very treatments which they recommend to their patients! The ironic and tragic fact is that today, there are more people living off cancer than there are people dying from this horrible disease. What can be done? What are your best options? Who has answers?
The Smarter Cancer Care Option
Cancer cells have an Achilles heel – a unique vulnerability – they need sugar. That is all they eat – sugar. They crave it. And they eat a lot more sugar than regular cells do – 17 times more to be exact, in the case of a breast cancer cell. How can cancer cells eat more sugar than regular cells? The reason is because cancer cells have more insulin receptors (think of these as “mouths” – image a cancer cell has 17 mouths compared to a regular cell having only 1 mouth!) than regular cells which only have a few insulin receptors.
How it Works
So what happens when we give you insulin to lower your blood sugar level (just like when an insulin dependent diabetic takes insulin)? This starves your cancer cells more than it does your regular cells. What happens when cancer cells are deprived of sugar? They get very ravenous and search everywhere for sugar. They gobble anything that looks like sugar and if we give you very low doses (like 1/10th the dose) of conventional chemo drugs with a little sugar at the same time that your cancer cells are careening around in search of something to eat, they will gobble up the chemo drugs preferentially along with whatever sugar is available. Being pigs (remember those 17 “mouths”?) , the cancer cells don’t share – so very few of your regular healthy cells get any sugar or any chemotherapy drugs which is why our patients call this “side-effect free chemotherapy”, a “kinder and gentler chemo” which is “hard on cancer but easy on the patient”.
What Testing is available?
You are unique. We will test to find out which cancer-killing agents are the most effective for you. Genetic and micronutrient and chemosensitivity testing allow us to customize your treatment for maximum benefits. In fact, we offer treatment protocols to enhance your immune system in order to kill cancer and help prevent it from returning.
Who is Bradford S. Weeks, M.D. ?
