In 1955, I served the government as Director General of Singburi Hospital. I was the head of the hospital and at the same time, was doing some of my own research. I started searching for herbal medicines for use as cancer curatives.

At that time, Thong-Phan-Chang plants were believed to help in curing cancer, so I grew a lot of them. When I had cancer patients, I tried boiling the plant to make medicine for my patients but it failed. When inspecting the Outpatient Department, I tried to always ask patients and their families if they knew about any type of herbal formula to cure cancer but got nowhere.

Herbal Cancer Cure Discovered - Chapter 3 of 'Dr Sommai Tongprasert MD: The Miracle Doctor Who Triumphed Over Cancer' book

In 1965, normally on the weekends there were not as many patients as at present. Because I liked to collect tree stumps, on Saturday and Sunday I often took the car on joy rides to Wichianburi District, Phetchaboon Province, looking for various types.

One day, I went to one of the rancher’s homes because I had heard that there was a big stump at his house. I found the stump and the rancher sitting in the house. He was breathing heavily with difficulty. Since we were acquaintances, I asked about his state of health.

He had been coughing and having problems breathing, so he had gone to Lopburi Hospital. The doctor x-rayed his lungs and told him that he had a pleural effusion (exudation of fluid from blood or lymph into a pleural cavity containing the lungs). They removed the liquid from his lungs and took a sample to check in Bangkok.

The result was that he had lung cancer and a pleural effusion. The Lopburi Hospital doctor wanted to send this patient to Siriraj Hospital, but the patient refused and went to a traditional doctor. The doctor treated him with herbal medicine. I checked and confirmed the original diagnosis. He did have a pleural effusion and was not able to lie down, so he just sat, leaning over.

Afterwards, I left and did not pay much attention to him for about eight months. I went back to his house, thinking that this man must had died by then and intended to make an offer to buy the wood stump from his wife. Instead I found the patient, alive and well.

This case had got my attention, so I went to Lopburi Hospital to meet his doctor there. I asked to see his medical record and x-ray but the doctor refused. I then thought that this patient must not actually have cancer, that his doctor probably made a mistake, so I did not pay attention to the formula of this herbal medicine.

Tongue Cancer Cure Case Study

In 1970, a merchant, who used to live in Singburi Market had moved to work in Bangkok but finally returned to Singburi. I heard that he had cancer and was in critical condition so I went to visit him.

The patient was very thin, and his tongue was covered in blisters. It was bleeding, had a foul smell and he could not close his mouth. He had a large lump under the lymph node. The patient had to put a small bowl (kidney shaped) under his chin to collect the blood and other fluids.

He told me he had gone to Ramathibodi Hospital and had been told that he had cancer of the tongue. He had received some radiation treatment, but his condition had not improved. His doctor told him to go back home, since there was no way to cure it. He could only use pain relievers to help.

I thought of the herbal medicine from Wichianburi Discrict and recommended that the patient try it. He agreed so I acquired four pots of it. I prepared it myself by boiling some of the herbal medicine until most of the liquid evaporated — leaving one glass’s worth. Then I told the patient to drip it into his mouth slowly and to finish it all within that day. One pot could make enough medicine for 15 days.

The patient only consumed some food, water, pain relievers and this herbal medicine, without any drugs. He condition continuously improved. The swollen blisters on his tongue shrank and the smell improved. The lump under his chin shrank and he could speak. He also started to gain some weight and suffered less pain.

I had acquired four more pots of herbal medicine and prepared them for him as before and his condition continued to improve. At the end of the fourth month, the swelling of his tongue subsided and only one tumor about the size of a partridge egg was left under his chin.

I got four more pots of medicine and continued to prepare them for him for six more months. The patient’s health returned to nearly normal. He gained some weight and was able to walk around.

I suggested taking him to Professor Doctor Udom Posakrisana, Director General of Siriraj Hospital, to remove the tumor on his chin and blisters on the tongue but he refused. The patient said that he wanted to continue taking this herbal medicine since it seemed to work.

He was in good condition for about half a year before his tongue swelled again and the blisters worsened. Finally, the patient died of blood loss from the wounds on his tongue.

Having personally checked on the merchant's condition daily, I had seen that this herbal medicine had potential as a cancer curative. So, I went to ask for the formula from the traditional doctor, but he refused. He told me he had cured many cancer patients but the modern medicine physicians would not accept it.

Lung Cancer Case Cure Study #2

At about three o’clock one afternoon in 1971, as I stood watching the laborers working on the lawn at Singburi Hospital. I saw a worker, who was building my house, pushing his mother in a wheelchair. I asked him what was wrong with her. He told me that she had coughed up blood, had lost her appetite and had lost weight, so he had brought her to the hospital. The doctor on duty had x-rayed her lungs.

When I received the x-ray results, I found a lump about the size of a chicken egg attached to the lung stem. I told him to give it to the doctor on duty, but don't go home just yet, and I myself would be treating her. The man followed my instructions.

I gave the patient herbal medicine and some vitamins as well as instructions to the son to prevent the patient taking any other medication whasoever and report his mother’s condition to me daily since he would be coming to work at my house every day.

The man did what I ordered and the patient’s condition continuously improved. After one month, I had her x-rayed again. The lump had shrunk so I gave her more herbal medicine. When eight months had passed, we again x-rayed her lungs and found the lump had disappeared. After three years, I stopped giving the patient any more herbal medicine.

The patient lived six more years until getting hit by a car while acrossing the street.

In 1972, the abbot of a temple in the Indara District of Singburi Province, asked me to treat his 60-year-old mother. She had been coughing up blood, had no appetite and had lost weight. I x-rayed her and suspected that she had cancer in the middle of her right lung. You could clearly see the lump.

I sent the patient to Dr. Panthip Sakornpun, a breast surgeon at Rajavithi Hopsital, to find out. She inspected the specimen and found traces of lung cancer type Bronchogenic Carcinoma. When Dr. Panthip sent the patient back to Singburi, I took her under my care.

When the patient first arrived, she was very thin and her dried up hair resembled grass in the summer. I treated her with only the herbal medicine and vitamins, and then followed up on the x-ray results every month. The shadow in the lung faded. After six months, the shadow in the lung x-ray disappeared and the patient’s head was full of black hair again. She returned home and continued taking the herbal medicine five more years. She came for x-rays every six months, but I found no problems in her lungs.

The patient had been treated at Singburi Hospital for six months, and lived another 10 years. She died of heart problems.

Pediatric Bone Cancer Cure Case Study

An 8-year-old child, came from Ayutthaya Province with a referral form from the Children’s Hospital (Bangkok) to Ayutthaya Hospital. The form said the patient had Aplastic Anemia (malfunctioning bone marrow, usually because of bone cancer, radiation, or chemical or drug toxicity) and needed new blood once a month from Ayutthaya Hospital. I gave four pots of herbal medicine to the child. Each pot of medicine was to last 15 days. After two months, the patient was to come back and see me.

When he had finished taking the medicine two months later, his parents brought the child to see me. They told me that the patient was healthy, able to return to school, and since he started taking the herbal medicine he had needed no new blood.

I gave them four pots of herbal medicine each time. The father came to pick them up every two months until one year had passed. I instructed the father to bring the patient in for a check-up. My physician also checked the child but found no problems.

I wrote a report to the Children’s Hospital asking them to re-test the child. The Children’s Hospital replied that the patient no longer had Aplastic Anemia. I kept both the first and second referral forms and told the patient’s father to continue coming to get herbal medicine for 3-4 more years. Every time we met, he said that the child was strong and healthy.

The patient was healthy and attended school, just like any normal child.

Around the end of 1973, the Director General of the Children’s Hospital led a group of doctors from his hospital on a lecture tour to Singburi Hospital and he stayed at my home. I showed the referral form from Ayutthaya Hospital and reply from the Children’s Hospital (re- test) to him.

He made note of both the referral form and reply and told me that the Children’s Hospital had seen this type of disease quite often. I asked him to send patients with the same problem to me so I could treat them. However, I never received any more patients from the Children’s Hospital after that.

Osteogenic Sarcoma (Osteosarcoma) Cure Case Study

On 3 April 1972, a 60-year-old patient from Trad Province came to see me in Singburi. His records showed that he had bone cancer in his left knee. It was big and swollen and he had to take pain relievers all the time. The patient could not walk and had to be carried.

I checked and found that the left knee had been operated on. I was told that he was operated on at Lerdsin Hospital. The doctor there said that it was bone cancer and the only option was to amputate his leg above the knee, although it would not completely cure him — only help relieve some of the pain.

The patient disagreed and returned home to Trad Province. In early March, his son went to see a dentist. The dentist was from Sapphaya District, Chainat Province, and had heard about my work in Singburi and my use of herbal medicine to cure cancer. Thus the patient’s son came to Singburi in early April.

After checking, I saw that he already was in the later stages and would not give him the herbal medicine. The son begged me for the medicine so I finally agreed and gave them four pots. They were to use two pots a month (once every 15 days) and x-ray the knee every month.

After two months, the son came to see me with the x-ray results and told me that the patient did not need pain relievers and the swelling on the left knee went down to the point that he was able to walk a little.

I prepared six more pots of medication for him and instructed them to get his knee x-rayed every month.

After three months the son came to visit me again and said that the swollen part of his father’s knee already half subsided and he could walk without pain. So I gave him another 12 pots with instructions to get the knee x-rayed monthly.

In early April of 1973, the son came with the patient and brought all the x-ray results to show me. The knee was no longer swollen and he could walk normally. From the x-rays, you could see the calcium particles filling in the holes from the osteoporosis.

I continued to send him herbal medicine by post and requested his medical records from Lerdsin Hospital by meeting with the Director General, who was a friend of mine. I kept all his medical records that contained x-rays. From the results of his tests, he had Osteosarcoma (malignant tumor of the bone).

This patient died of old age.

Stomach Cancer Cure Case Study

A 56-year-old patient from Suphanburi Province came to me with symptoms of stomach pain, vomiting and loss of appetite. I checked under his xiphoid process (metasternum) and found a moveable hard lump there, so I had his stomach x-rayed. At that time, the patient was very thin and weak. I dared not operate on him and made an agreement with the patient that I would give him some blood and saline solution to give him strength, but he would take the herbal medicine as well. He agreed.

I continued treating the patient per our agreement. His condition improved and the lump shrank. After two months, I decided to operate and found that the patient actually had stomach cancer of the Lesser Curvature, with a lump about the size of a chicken egg without Hyperemia. I did a subtotal gastrectomy and removed his lymph node, which was connected to the cancer lump. After the operation, I prescribed the herbal medicine for him for many years.

He lived another 12 years. The lump was Adenocarcinoma (malignant tumor in glandular epithelium).

Basal Cell Carcinoma Cure Case Study

A 50-year-old woman came in with a chronic wound around her right temple. After checking, it appeared to be skin cancer, so I gave her two month’s worth of herbal medicine. The wound got smaller, so I continued to give her the medication for another six months.

Afterwards, the scab from her wound fell off and left a scar. So during the operation, I removed it and found that it was a cancerous Basal Cell Carcinoma. This patient took the herbal medicine for many years and showed no more symptoms.

There were many other patients who took the herbal medicine whose conditions improved. I kept all their medical records and filed them separately so it would be easy to search for future reference.
