When Edmonds businessman Joe Tippens was diagnosed with small-cell lung cancer in 2016, his life suddenly took a turn for the worse. He was told he had just three months to live and that the aggressive cancer had spread to his liver, pancreas, lungs, stomach, neck and bones. In desperation, he turned to what most people would consider “dog medicine,” fenbendazole, an anti-worm drug used to treat hookworms, roundworms and other gut parasites in dogs and cats.
It was, he claims, the medication that saved his life. He says he took the drug, along with vitamin E, CBD oil and curcumin, and his next PET scan revealed no trace of cancer. He credits the drug with allowing him to spend his final days with his first grandchild and his family.
Since he shared his story on Facebook and the website Get Busy Living in 2018, Tippens has accumulated dozens of accounts from people who claim that the same drug worked for them, too. While many medical professionals are skeptical and dismiss the case as anecdotal, researchers are starting to take notice.
In fact, a new study has found that fenbendazole might have the potential to be an effective treatment for ovarian cancer, colorectal cancer and other common cancers. The researchers say the anti-worm medication is capable of disrupting the cycle that allows cancer cells to grow, multiply and thrive. It could also be used to prevent cancer from recurring once it has been treated with chemotherapy or radiation. joe tippens protocol
