The story of Joe Tippens has drawn skepticism from people all over the world, but since he started using dog dewormer cancer, he’s been able to make his skeptics reconsider. Known as the Joe Tippens Protocol, this unconventional treatment involves fenbendazole, CBD oil, and bioavailable curcumin. This drug is used by veterinarians to protect against gastrointestinal parasites in dogs, cats, and horses. It’s not approved for human use, but it’s been gaining popularity after videos of it being used as a cancer cure went viral.
Some peer-reviewed studies have found that fenbendazole may help treat some types of cancer, but it’s not proven. The National Cancer Institute and the Food and Drug Administration have not given it approval for cancer treatment in humans.
When an Old English Sheepdog named Dexter was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called HER2-positive, doctors told him to expect just three months to live. But he refused to give up. He enrolled in a clinical trial that wouldn’t save him, but it might give him enough time to see his first grandchild born.
But while this experimental therapy isn’t a cure, it might be able to slow the progression of the disease by teaching the immune system to recognize and attack tumors like they would bacterial infections. And that’s why this new approach to battling cancer is getting so much attention, even from scientists who aren’t sure it will work. We’ll take a closer look at how this immunotherapy works.
