A cancer therapy based on Revici’s theory of disease dualism, which holds that disease is nothing more than an imbalance between anabolism and catabolism. According to the Revici framework, diseases can be controlled by determining the nature of a biological imbalance and providing the substance that corrects it; it is said to detect catabolic or anabolic processes by measuring urinary pH. Catabolic agents include fatty acids, magnesium, selenium and sulphur; anabolic agents include caffeine, iron, lipols, lithium and zinc.
The method has no demonstrable efficacy and is based on no known or established scientific principle.
