Cancer. It’s a diagnosis nobody wants to receive. Yet, tragically, it’s a diagnosis that a larger portion of the human population will receive this year than ever before in history. Yup, that’s right.

Now, you might be thinking, ‘How could the number of cancer cases be rising in spite of our modern, controlled environment?’ I get that ā€“ it’s a totally reasonable question to ask. But here’s the thing; cancer rates are not rising in spite of our modern, controlled environment. They’re rising because of it.

Commercialization and human tampering have turned everything from personal hygiene maintenance to eating into potentially cancer-causing activities.

But when humans create problems, you can usually count on nature to save the day. And that’s exactly what nature did for Tommy Chong of ‘Cheech and Chong’ fame.


In 2012, the actor was diagnosed with prostate cancer. His doctor recommended that he enroll in high-frequency radiation therapy ā€“ a $25,000 procedure. Of course, that’s chump change to the $8 million man Tommy Chong. But he chose a more natural route.

Skipping the chemo, Tommy instead met up with naturopath Dr. Neil McKinney in Vancouver. The doctor put him on a special diet and supplement regimen. He also increased his hemp oil usage and worked with energy healer Dr. Adam ‘Dreamhealer’ McLeod, who helped Tommy get his body into a state conducive to cancer treatment.

And then, in 2013, Tommy shared this:

With the diet, the supplements and the hash oil, plus a session with a world-renowned healer, Adam Dreamhealer, I’m cancer-free. That’s right, I kicked cancer’s ass! So the magic plant does cure cancer with the right diet and supplements. I’m due for another blood test, MRI, etc., but I feel the best I’ve felt in years.

The Truth About Cancer Treatment


What? How? How could Tommy Chong survive a disease that kills 1 in 39 men annually by changing his diet, using hemp oil and seeing an energy healer?

No doubt, this is all very unusual in light of the conventional rhetoric surrounding cancer treatment. But each component in Tommy Chong’s alternative treatment plan actually has quite a bit of evidence to support it.

Cannabis, for example, was just this year quietly recognized by the National Cancer Institute as an effective cancer treatment. Diet? We know, without a shadow of a doubt, that it plays a key role in fighting off cancer. Meditative energy healing? We also know that it has the potential to benefit the human body tremendously at a molecular level.

In other words, it’s actually not all that surprising that Tommy Chong defeated prostate cancer the way he did.


In 2015, Tommy Chong was diagnosed with a different kind of cancer ā€“ the rectal variety, which he jokingly referred to as ‘a pain in the butt.’

“The good news is I have to use more marijuana to treat the cancer,” he tweeted. “I’m using cannabis like crazy now, more so than ever before… I’m going to make sure I get a little edge off or put up.”
