Stage 4 Glioblastoma Multiforme - A Story of Healing

This video shows a process of healing stage 4 glioblastoma multiforme brain tumor.


Gert-Inge, 54 y.o, resident of Copenhagen, Denmark, started working with me right after the brain surgery on glioblastoma multiforme stage 4 brain tumor. 

About Glioblastoma Multiforme

GBM (Glioblastoma Multiforme) is one of the most aggressive brain tumors that interferes with all bodily functions and leads to a very fast decline, slowly depriving a person of the ability to move, to communicate, and even to eat and drink.

GBM survival rates are one of the shortest of all brain tumors. Clinical trials of targeted therapies brought little survival benefits to GBM patients [1,37]. As you might already know, their median life prolonging effect is around 12 months in average, despite of lots of scientific trials [37,38].

GBM is considered incurable by conventional targeted approaches like chemotherapy, radiation and surgery because they don't change the environment in the brain in the long term - but only target the symptoms. It doesn't change the long-term prognosis for very agressive cancer cell populations with high grade of heterogeneity and diffusion among the normal cells.

Our non-invasive healing strategy

Targeting single genes will always remain the strategy of targeting single symptoms. Targeting single genes will never be able to address the real causes of a complex disease. This strategy has been shown to be a complete fallacy [1]

Many recent scientific studies show that metabolic approaches can stop and reverse terminal stages of cancer that are incurable by conventional medicine [2,3,4].

We worked together for 5 months. Our strategy was to use a Non-Pharmacological Metabolic Approach (NPMA) to address the metabolic causes of tumor - optimising brain cell environment. We used Sakharoff Protocol to change the body' cell environment and stop tumor growth - instead of only fighting the symptoms with targeted therapies as chemo and radiation.

We trained Buteyko method right from the start, first with small steps then with higher and higher intensity, slowly overcoming plateaus and moving further and further in the healing process.

We changed daily nutrition to make a slow transition to nutritional ketosis.

Clearly defined measurement targets

The whole idea with the intensive framework is targeted on several metabolic markers that are known to stop brain tumors (instead of traditional gene-specific tumor markers). All of the markers that we are using in Sakharoff Protocol are fully measurable. That shows the process of healing. We are waiting for the next scan in the middle of Oktober 2018 to confirm our presumption of Dr. Buteyko - tumours can not exist with MCP at a stable daily level ≥ 60 sec.

The splash you can see in the MCP and G/K lines show the phenomenon of "scanxiety" well known to all cancer survivors - nervousness before the scan that is influencing all the metabolic markers. Structured methods in our program are also addressing scanxiety through methods from the martial arts and samurai legacy - 1-pointed attention training with PAR (Progressive Active Relaxation).

Science & Practice - Misha Sakharoff:

Are You Diagnosed With Glioblastoma Multiforme?

The Sakharoff Protocol is a Non-Pharmacological Metabolic Approach (NPMA) that integrates the 5 main areas of human health into one structured program of training and assisted lifestyle change.

It targets cellular environment of the body as a whole - rather than the genetic expression of particular single genes involved in the tumor progression.

About Sakharoff Integrative Health


  • To empower people through integrative approach to rediscover the natural healing powers of their body, so they can take back responsibility for their health. 

  • To move from sick-care to health-care and towards non-invasive metabolic therapies – instead of constantly finding new genetic pathways to promote the current business model based on creation of new highly invasive chemical drugs.

  • To bring forth a paradigm shift towards education instead of medication.

  • To move back to the old model of medicine. Here, doctors were rewarded for their success in keeping their patients healthy - instead of being paid for trying to heal them when they got sick.


  • Sakharoff Integrative Health protocol is a NPMA - Non-Pharmacological Metabolic Approach. As such it does no harm in the medical sense, it does not use any medical substances and basically doesn’t require any special equipment. We don’t sell neither the substances or the equipment. We only provide education and training to optimize the body functions essential for health and resilience. We also provide daily assistance to our clients to ensure 100% compliance regarding their activity and measurement regimens.

  • Sakharoff Protocol promotes not either-or, but both-and. It means that the idea of integrative health has to be promoted. We connect the dots - not only nutrition, not only breathing, not only movement but all of that combined in one process.

  • Sakharoff Protocol is in many ways complementary to the work of doctors that are openminded. Our common understanding is that the source of chronic diseases is metabolic dysfunction triggered by wrong lifestyle, through expression of a person's unique DNA.

  • Sakharoff Protocol uses scientific research studies as the foundation for its core teachings and exercises.

  • Sakharoff Protocol looks at triggers and causes of the disease - not only the symptoms. The protocol promotes understanding of lifestyle disease as syndrome with metabolic disfunction - multi-factorial condition with a bouquet of symptoms. Eg. people with Alzheimer’s most often than not get both diabetes and cardiovascular disease and other symptoms of metabolic dysfunction.

  • Sakharoff Integrative Health work on two levels of interest. Firstly, helping individual person taking responsibility for his/her own health. Secondly, with the whole society, facilitating the paradigm shift from the practice of conventional allotropic medicine towards the idea of integrative metabolic health.
