AMYGDALIN AMPULES (Laetrile ampoules)

Laetrile ampoules

The following protocol is a common one and varies somewhat depending on the treating physician. Start with one- 10 cc ampoule the first day, none the second day, two 10 cc ampoules the third day, none the fourth day, and three 10 cc ampoules the fifth day. Thereafter three ampoules, three times per week (typically Monday, Wednesday, & Friday). The amygdalin tablets (usually 2 per day) are taken on the days no ampoules are given.

The regimen for three ampoules three times per week is generally followed for two months.  One ampoule is used in the beginning in case there is an allergic or some other type of reaction. These are extremely rare and this procedure is merely used as a precaution to guarantee against a more serious reaction should there be one. If sufficient progress has been made the individual is removed from the ampoules and placed on tablets only. 

Although this protocol is used by a number of physicians, it should be noted that there are physicians who take a much more aggressive approach, especially in serious situations. Because of the extremely low toxicity of injected amygdalin, a much higher dose can easily be used. Some physicians will use three or even four ampoules per day, five days a week if they feel that it is necessary.

Some will even use them every day for a few weeks. Usually, no tablets are given on the days that IV injections are given, but once again some protocols will vary. Sometimes when someone is receiving an injection once a day or more than 4 days a week, the physician will give one tablet per day on the days that they are receiving the IV

LYOPHILIZED AMYGDALIN  (powdered Laetrile)

Some physicians will only use the powdered or lyophilized form of amygdalin for injection. This is done because the amygdalin is guaranteed to stay stabilized in its natural level form if it is reconstituted and put into a liquid form immediately before it is used.  It is believed (for good reason) that the lyophilized form is superior to the liquid form.

Those physicians who have used the lyophilized (or powdered) injectable form of amygdalin usually do not return to the liquid form unless the powdered form becomes unavailable. This is done even though it is a much greater nuisance to reconstitute a powder with sterile water than to use an ampule that is already in liquid form. 

In short, as previously mentioned the lyophilized form is guaranteed to remain stabilized in its natural form whereas the amygdalin that is put into solution and bottled is inclined to not remain stable and in a relatively short period of time, revert to a form of lesser quality.  

When physicians use a slow IV drip technique when using lyophilized amygdalin and other injectable nutrients, the amygdalin should be reconstituted and put into the IV drip bag during the last 10-20 minutes of the IV infusion or the IV tube should be closed off and the reconstituted amygdalin injected IV push. If the reconstituted lyophilized amygdalin is put directly into the IV bag at the beginning of a long-running IV infusion, it would defeat the purpose of using a form of amygdalin that is put into solution just prior to its use.

Amygdalin injectable powder form:

The injectable Amygdalin is extorted from the unprocessed apricot kernel truly similar to the B17 tablets.

The advantage of the injectable form is that you can initiate making use of huge doses seeing that it does not exit through the alimentary system as it travels into the vein. The wonderful aspect of using Amygdalin injectable powder is that you can carry out 9000 mg per day on the very first day instead of assembling it up.

Each injectable ampoule comprises 3 grams of uncontaminated laetrile powder blended with 3cc of DimethylSulfoxide and 7cc of germ-free water. It goes without saying that the injectable variety is the finest type of laetrile treatment.

It may not be out of place to mention here that, it may be compulsory for any person desirous to perform the injectable treatment at their residences, to trust that they may require qualified medical recommendation/overhaul/guidance for the setting up of a catheter point through which the injection will be dispensed; furthermore they will also require syringes necessary for the injections and other stuff essential to perform the practice in a germ-free atmosphere.

Amygdalin Powdered Ampoules (not freeze-dried):

Each ampoule holds 3 grams; they are placed in a box of ten. With injectable powder there is no reduction in effectiveness with the passage of time. With the already blended injectable solution (seized in germ-free ampoules) there is some lessening in effectiveness with the passage of time. In its intravenous form, Amygdalin‘s dosage should be 6 gm every day.

AMYGDALIN TABLETS (Laetrile tablets)

The general rule of thumb with amygdalin tablets is 2 tablets per day on days that no IV amygdalin is given. Dr. Ernest T. Krebs Jr. (the son of the discoverer of amygdalin’s use in cancer therapy) recommends 2 amygdalin 500 mg tablets at bedtime on an empty stomach, with a full glass of water.  This recommendation is just a starting point. As previously mentioned, individual needs may vary. Individual physicians may use slightly different protocols. Some use widely different protocols.

Some physicians will recommend that amygdalin tablets be taken with meals. However, it has been demonstrated that an empty stomach is probably a more efficient way to absorb amygdalin. When enteric-coated amygdalin tablets were available, blood tests clearly indicated that the amygdalin was being absorbed up to 3 times more efficiently than the uncoated type.

Since an enteric coating allows the tablet to go through the stomach unchanged and not dissolve until it lands in the intestine, it is clear that taking an uncoated amygdalin tablet on an empty stomach is more efficient, since the tablet will not stay in the stomach very long if there is no food in the stomach.

The best way to determine how many amygdalin tablets an individual should take per day is by having a thiocyanate blood test done through their physician. In order to do the test efficiently, 2 tests need to be done. One test should be done before one starts amygdalin tablets, and the other test should be done 2 weeks after they start.  Most physicians prefer to do periodic testing to ensure everything is going smoothly. It is agreed by nearly all of the physicians that a blood thiocyanate level should be a minimum of 15 mg per liter (or 1.5 mg per deciliter).

There is some dispute as to where the best range is. Ernest Krebs Jr. has held that the thiocyanate level should be maintained between 15 mg/liter and 25 mg/liter (1.5-2.5 mg/ deciliter). Dr. Krebs maintained that although a higher level does no harm, he didn’t believe that a higher level was of much benefit either. 

However, some research indicates that best results are achieved when the thiocyanate levels are 30 mg/liter (3.0/deciliter) or higher. It is agreed by all that thiocyanate in and of itself does not induce any toxicity until the blood levels reach about 90 mg/liter (9.0/deciliter). Some will not experience any side effects until the levels reach 120 mg/liter (12.0/deciliter).

When the thiocyanate levels climb too high, some or all of the following symptoms may occur shortness of breath, rapid heartbeat, lightheadedness, dizziness, muscle weakness, nausea, and possibly shortness of breath.  If any of these symptoms occur, ALL oral amygdalin and anything that contains amygdalin in high concentrations (such as fruit seeds) should be stopped immediately and your physician should be contacted for further instructions. The symptoms will be greatly diminished if not completely disappear within 24 hours. Consuming large quantities of water will cause these symptoms to disappear much sooner. 

These reactions are rare and ironically are quite often viewed as a good sign since it is an indication that amygdalin is being absorbed and utilized efficiently. However, there is no purpose in allowing these symptoms to continue. Remember, every substance on the planet has a toxic level, including water.

Anyone who continues to consume something that is producing symptoms and making them feel lousy is ignoring their body’s signals that they have had too much and are affecting their health in a detrimental way.  Most physicians will merely remove their patients from the tablets for a few days, then reintroduce the amygdalin tablets at a lower dosage.

Enteric-coated amygdalin tablets are difficult to find but are considered greatly superior. Quite often thiocyanate levels have been doubled or even tripled by using amygdalin tablets that have been enterically coated without changing the number of tablets ingested. The only precaution that should be mentioned is the possibility of an elevated thiocyanate level that may cause reactions as previously mentioned.

Usually no more than 2 -500 mg tablets are taken per day when they are enteric-coated, and almost always given separately, NOT at the same time as the uncoated version. The enteric coating allows the tablets to remain intact and pass through the stomach unchanged. The alkaline sensitive coating is stripped in the intestine where the acid level is low, allowing for duodenal absorption which results in a more efficient absorption which is proven with the resulting elevated thiocyanate levels. Currently, enteric-coated amygdalin tablets are not easily found.

DMSO booster


As another adjunct to injectable amygdalin, many physicians employ the use of DMSO structure to their routine to greatly enhance absorption. DMSO is short for a substance called Dimethyl Sulfoxide. This is a natural by-product of the lumber industry and comes from the bark of trees.  It is most commonly used as an industrial solvent and is commonly used in veterinary medicine as a powerful anti-inflammatory agent.  Its approved use in orthodox medicine in humans, however, is limited.

As well as being an anti-inflammatory agent, DMSO has a powerful ability to greatly enhance the absorption rate of virtually anything that it is used with.  To demonstrate its powerful penetrating action, one needs only to rub a small quantity DMSO between their index finger and thumb. Within just a few seconds they will taste its a unique odor and flavor. Many of the physicians that use DMSO, always use it when they give amygdalin IV because they believe that it has been demonstrated that DMSO greatly enhances the absorption and action of all other nutrients. DMSO is also very inexpensive.

There are other physicians who use it only under certain circumstances. Most commonly this would include anything that involves the brain or bone. Because of its powerful ability to permeate cell membranes, it is used to pull nutrients into the bone where normally it is difficult to deliver such nutrients. Furthermore, it will cross the blood/brain barrier and carry any nutrients with it that would not normally cross the blood/brain barrier.

Consequently, the results of injected amygdalin when used with DMSO have been described as astounding when the brain is involved. Many of these physicians that now use DMSO with these conditions have previously had poor responses when dealing with conditions involving the brain because of the restrictions of the blood/brain barrier.  Amygdalin itself is too large of a molecule to cross the blood/brain barrier and therefore does not normally get into the brain tissue. When DMSO is employed, however, all of that changes and results are now being seen where extremely poor results were achieved before DMSO was used.

DMSO’s biggest side effect is its odor. It is sulfur based and is described by many to smell like garlic. When it is injected the person receiving it smells like DMSO. This in and of itself is a testimony to its powerful penetrating and enhancing effect. Some people experience nausea, but that is remedied by reducing the amount of DMSO that an individual receives for a period and slowly increasing the dosage. Typically, when DMSO is used in an IV push (injection), 3 cc of DMSO 90%-100% solution is used for every 3 grams of amygdalin (10 cc of solution in a liquid amygdalin 3-gram ampule & 20 cc of solution in a lyophilized 3-gram vial). 

When a slow IV drip is used, some physicians use up to 10 cc of DMSO for every 3 grams of amygdalin. As well as enhancing the action of other substances, research has indicated that DMSO in and of itself may demonstrate anti-tumor activity. Many physicians who faithfully use DMSO with their patients have proclaimed that they don’t know what they would do without it.
