Online Groups for Alternative and Holistic Cancer Support


Searching for online alternative cancer support? I’ve learned that it’s  pretty normal to feel alone when you choose to treat your cancer naturally. It comes with the territory. 🙂

You eventually get used to it- feeling a bit like an outcast amongst even your closest loved ones. But it’s our doctors and medical team that can be the most discouraging since our choice is one that goes against mainstream belief about cancer treatment. A community of cancer “thrivers” who are coming from a similar place as you are would be amazing, right? Thankfully nowadays this is totally a reality.

I would have loved to have known about the below online groups when I chose to treat my cancer naturally in 2008.  It would have brought such peace and comfort to me to know that others were feeling the same way I was: alone at times, doubtful at times, scared at times, empowered at times- a range of emotions to deal with mostly on my own and questions I didn’t know who to ask.

If you’re dealing with cancer or helping a loved one, spend some time checking out these groups. And if you are a member of an alternative cancer group that is not in this list, feel free to drop the URL in the comments below and I’ll add it to the list!



You need to have a profile to access and become a member of each of these groups. If you are not a member of Facebook yet and privacy is a concern, know that you can change your security and privacy settings so that people can’t search for you on Facebook and you’ll only be active in the groups you choose to become a member of.

(And a quick side note, you can LIKE the Anti-Cancer Mom Facebook PAGE while you’re there. 😉

  1. Oh thank you thank you thank you!!! These groups are going to be so encouraging to me!! I’m so excited! You write so beautifully and capture the exact feelings I have – so amazing and so true that only another cancer thriver can understand. Thank you so much for your blog. You have helped me more than you will ever know. 🙂 hugs!

  2. Dear Courtney: Good site! I appreciate all the good information as well as your establishing the BH support group on facebook, which I joined after receiving Bill’s e-mail. I’m now 78 years old and have had 3 cancer bouts over the past 15 years. What I’ve learned is now posted on my site at It is primarily intended to educate Christians & Seniors on Emergency & Health Tips & Resources. I try and primarily personally follow the BH protocol for prevention, but do use the brand of whole food vitamins. Be aware that the Advantage brand, although a decent deal for $ involved, has considerable synthetics along with some natural content, depending on which vitamin it is. A source can legally per FDA advertise as natural with as little as 10% true
    naturals involved (go figure). The 3 top all-natural (whole food) vitamins are Mega Food, Garden of Life and New Charter (per Mike Adams the Health Ranger at The natural D3 is
    87% better than the D2 synthetic per Dr. Joseph Mercola, and the natural E is 50% better than synthetic E according to Dr. Andrew Saul (, etc. However, he does approve of the synthetic C as OK as both involve ascorbic acid and synthetic is cheaper for mega-dose needs. Again, thanks for your very helpful site! May the Good Lord Bless You BIG! Joe Lanier in Jasper, Texas…

  3. My daughter is restoring her body to wellness. She is treating her colon tumour with a therapy based in Mexico and alternatives here in Perth Australia.

  4. Hello, I thought this group would help if you could recommend the best group for serious carcinoma cancer. My sister was just diagnosed with this horrible disease. I have been doing a lot of research but having a hard time knowing if it’s right or not. I would love to talk with some people who are going thru the same thing and their thoughts on all of it. We are very lost here. Thank you

  5. Hi
    I came across the Black Salve skin cancer group by accident and would be very very interested in joining the group, as at present I am treating a skin cancer that is affecting both my ears + all round my neck + different parts of my body. I am using Black Salve and it is working.

    How do I go about joining this group?


  6. Hello…my husband just started his alternative treatment and is losing weight. Just wondering if anyone has any tips to stimulate his appetite.
