Tumors take their energy from glucose and turn it into lactic acid which must be broken down by the liver. Unfortunately, the liver converts lactic acid to glucose. This cycle is called cachexia (pronounced ka-kek-see-ah) and is responsible for the wasting away that is typical of cancer patients. Hydrazine sulfate, sometimes referred to as HZ, is designed to stop this wasting away.
Hydrazine sulfate's popularity grew rapidly after the publicity generated at the 1974 NHF(National Health Federation) convention by Dr. Joseph Gold, director of the Syracuse Cancer Research Institute in Syracuse, New York.
Hydrazine sulfate was demonstrating good results, but it was getting too popular. The FDA decided to put on the brakes and withdrew the INDs (Investigational New Drug number). After that, funding dried up, and companies withdrew their interest in researching the drug. All of this despite the fact that the drug was showing good response in a number of studies.
In the 1960s Dr. Joseph Gold, director of the Syracuse Cancer Research Institute in Syracuse, New York, started looking for a way to stop cachexia (see Introduction ). He eventually found that hydrazine sulfate blocked a liver enzyme that supports cachexia.
Hydrazine sulfate blocks a liver enzyme that is needed for the liver to support cachexia, the wasting away experienced by most advanced cancer patients.
Hydrazine sulfate has been used for reducing pain and interrupting cachexia. Cachexia stops the wasting away that later stage cancer patients experience. Hydrazine sulfate seems to be effective regardless of the type of cancer. However, hydrazine sulfate does not seem to be effective in removing cancer tumors.
In 1973 Dr. Joseph Gold, director of the Syracuse Cancer Research Institute performed an animal study with hydrazine sulfate. The results showed that it inhibited the growth of several different types of tumors in laboratory animals. It also improved the effectiveness of several chemotherapy drugs.
Dr. Dean Burk, of NCI, called hydrazine sulfate "the most remarkable anticancer agent I have come across in my forty-five years of experience in cancer." He even detailed some case histories of successful treatments with hydrazine sulfate:
Since April 1, 1973, upwards of 30 cachectic or "terminal" cancer patients have been treated with gelatin capsules containing 60 mg of hydrazine sulfate three to four times a day (at intervals of about 6 hours). Usually within 24-48 hours there is a marked return of appetite followed by continued increase in weight, remarkably restored physical activity, and eventually decrease in tumor size, decrease in pain, and related decrease in symptomatology.
One patient, a young man with Hodgkin's disease, was bedridden and severely underweight. After receiving only two doses of hydrazine sulfate he was able to get out of bed and care for himself. After five days of treatment he actually left the hospital for a brief trip. There appeared to be no side effects from the low dosage of the drug employed, and one patient who had a previously inoperable cancer experienced sufficient tumor regression to be operated on.
Another Sloan-Kettering Debacle
It seems that every alternative cancer treatment study that is performed by Sloan-Kettering is run so poorly that no conclusions can be made. Here is just another example:
In September 1973 Dr. Gold joined a research team effort to evaluate hydrazine sulfate's effects. However, it turned out that many of the patients chosen for the study were within days of dying. Also, Sloan-Kettering allegedly did not follow the agreed dosages that were to be administered. In 1974 Sloan-Kettering announced the results of the study, claiming that none of the patients had shown a positive response to hydrazine sulfate and that some of the patients experienced neurotoxic side effects.
In the Journal Oncology, a study was published by Dr. Golden. This study evaluated eighty-four patients with various types of advanced cancer who used hydrazine sulfate. 70 percent of the patients reported improvements, such as increased strength, improved performance, decreased pain, increased appetite, weight gain or cessation of weight loss. Also, 17 percent experienced measurable improvement such as, tumor regression, disappearance of or decrease in cancer-associated disorders, and long-term condition stabilization.
Positive Results from Russia
A study conducted in the Soviet Union confirmed that hydrazine sulfate can retard the growth of several types of cancers in animals. The study also contained results of forty-eight terminal cancer patients who were given hydrazine as a last resort. Out of peas 48 cases, tumor growth altered in 15 percent, and another 20 percent experienced measurable tumor regression; 58 percent of the patients reported subjective improvements, such as reduction of pain, and increased appetite.
A Large Published Study
A large-scale study of hydrazine sulfate was run in 1979 in Russia under the supervision of a Dr. Michael Gershanovich. The study ran for four years and included 225 patients. The results of the study was published. Summarizing the results make it clear that hydrazine sulfate was effective in reversing cachexia and producing disease stabilization in late-stage cancer patients.
A Larger Study
A larger, Soviet study demonstrated the effectiveness of hydrazine sulfate in 740 cancer patients most of whom had used conventional treatments without success. The types of cancer broke down as follows:
200 lung cancer
138 cancer of the stomach
66 breast cancer
63 Hodgkin's disease
After two to three weeks of therapy, tumor stabilization or regression occurred in 50.8 percent of the patients, 46.6 percent of the patients had improvements, such as decrease in fever, reduced respiratory problems, and disappearance of edema. Other results included, improved appetite and strength, and decrease or elimination of pain.
Fraudulent NCI Testing
Daniel Haley's brilliant book, Politics in Healing, tells how NCI's 1991 clinical trial of the alternative cancer treatment, hydrazine sulfate (HS), was rigged to fail.
A spectacularly promising medicine, HS had shown good results in trials at Harbor/UCLA hospital and in Russia. NCI felt obligated to test the drug. But there was a catch.
The drug's discoverer, Dr. Joseph Gold, had found that HS reacted badly if patients were taking other drugs, especially tranquilizers. Several warnings were given to NCI before it began its test. The warnings were explicit. Patients could DIE if they were taking tranquilizers.
It turned out that none of the NCI patients were warned about this. It turned out that 94% of those patients were in fact on tranquilizers. Barry Tice, an investigator for the US General Accounting Office (GAO), looked into the NCI trial of hydrazine sulfate after it was over. He called Dr. Gold and told him he had found a "smoking gun." There was an internal NCI memo which showed that NCI was well aware of the problems involved in the drug combinations. The GAO did not back up its own investigator. The final GAO report on the NCI clinical trials of hydrazine sulfate simply accused NCI of sloppy bookkeeping.
In the June 1995 issue of the Journal of Clinical Oncology, a letter from the NCI was published. The letter stated that NCI had omitted mentioning, in its own published account of its cancer study, that 94% of the patients had been on tranquilizers. But, because this letter did NOT mention how dangerous that situation was, it looked like NCI was simply admitting to a technical and unimportant mistake. A clerical error.
So what did happen to the patients in the NCI hydrazine sulfate study?
They ALL DIED.

Quantity of Papers
Even a casual investigation of hydrazine sulfate will find a large number of research papers. See studies above.
Conclusiveness of Papers
The conclusions of the majority of research papers written about hiders and sulfate shows that it has positive effects for treating cancer and most especially for reducing pain and weight loss. See studies above.
Cachexia and is responsible for the wasting away that is typical of cancer patients. Hydrazine sulfate is designed to stop this wasting away it was not intended as a primary tumor biting treatment. However, since there do not seem to be any compatibility issues, hydrazine sulfate seems like a good candidate as an auxiliary treatment especially when the patient is losing weight and in pain.
Dosage and Ease of Use
Hydrazine sulfate only needs to be taken three times a day in a small 60 mg pill. Persons weighing less than 125 lbs. have often been advised to switch to a 30 mg pill.
See the "Hydrazine Sulfate Is an MAOI Avoid These Foods" subsection under Side Effects for a list of foods whose intake you may want to reduce.
People who change their eating habits greatly increase the effectiveness of the supplements they take. Consider reading the General Diet subsection of the Home page.
Although hydrazine sulfate is generally considered nontoxic there are some potential side effects that usually only occur at high doses. These side effects include: dizziness, drowsiness, mild numbness (particularly of the fingers and toes), nausea and mild sensations of itching of the skin. There is actually a positive side effect, hydrazine sulfate often produces a mild euphoria after two to three weeks of use. Polyneuritis (nerve inflammation) sometimes occurs in cases of prolonged and continuous treatment. Dr. Gold stated that vitamin B6 can alleviate this problem. Taking Hydrazine sulfate and tranquilizers during the same time can be fatal.
Hydrazine Sulfate Is a MAOI Avoid These Foods
Hydrazine Sulfate inhibits an enzyme that breaks down monoamines (serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine). These are chemicals used by our brain and effect our mood. MAO inhibitors metabolize tyramine, an amino acid. When taking an MAO inhibitor, tyramine is not broken down, and eating foods with tyramine can raise blood pressure and heart beat and cause headaches. Most of the foods containing tayramine are not very healthy so it is good to be avoiding them anyway.
Foods containing tyramine are mostly aged, fermented, or pickled, such as most cheeses (except cottage cheese, cream cheese, and fresh Mozzerlla), lunch meats, hot dogs, yogurt, wines and beers. A more complete list of foods that contain tyramine:
Dry and fermented sausage (bologna, salami, pepperoni, corned beef, and liver), pickled herring and salted dried fish, broad beans and pods (lima, fava beans, lentils, snow peas, and soy beans), meat extracts, yeast extracts/brewer's yeast, beer and ale, red wine (chianti, burgundy, sherry, vermouth), sauerkraut, some fruits (bananas, avacados, canned figs, raisins, red plums, raspberries, pinapples), cultured dairy products (buttermilk, yogurt, and sour cream), chocolate, caffeine (coffee, tea, and cola drinks), white wine, port wines, distilled spirits, soy sauce, miso, peanuts, almonds, beef or chicken liver, herring, meat tenderizer, MSG (Accent), pickles, and pumpkin seeds.
People avoiding tyramine, reduce their intake of high protein food that have undergone aging and over-the-counter cold or allergy remedy.
There are not any known compatibility issues with hydrazine sulfate and other cancer treatments or supplements. However, taking hydrogen sulfate while taking tranquilizers, can have fatal complications.
.Hydrazine sulfate became popular in the 1970s
Relative Cost per Month
One hundred 60 mg pills, enough for one month, costs about $30.
Testimonials and Belief
Testimonials can be a very powerful tool to help in the healing process because they can boost your belief in a treatment. However, reading testimonies is a poor method of making a treatment selection. An alternative cancer treatment with only a 5% success rate can still obtain many genuine and impressive testimonials. A selected group of positive testimonials cannot compare to a study were all of the case histories are presented, the failures as well as the successes. Only then can you have a significant impression of effectiveness.
With all of that said, testimonials have a valuable purpose. After you have decided on a treatment, reading testimonials will increase your belief in the treatment. Nothing is more effective that belief because it causes you to create the images of recovery and put you in the correct frame of mind to cause healing. The best collection of testimonials comes as an addendum to Natural Cancer Cures by Karon Beattie which is currently out of stock hopefully only temporarily.
There are many valid alternative cancer treatments that conventional doctors cannot prescribe.
Each treatment only works on a minority of patients that try it.
The best treatment for a patient depends more on body chemistry than the type or stage of cancer.
Just because a treatment worked on someone else does not mean it will work for you.
Almost every cancer patient uses more than one alternative cancer treatment. The most successful use at least one that was selected by their body. After you order Hydrazine Sulfate, learn how to ask you body to select another cancer treatment using Behavioral Kinesiology. It only takes about ten minutes and you will have a skill that will help you do many things.
