For hundreds of years, amygdalin has had a long-standing reputation in the natural health community as an effective compound for cellular health and immunity. Also known as Vitamin B17, amygdalin can be consumed via seeds or supplements. Apricot seeds contain the highest concentration of amygdalin found in nature.
Dr. Ernst T. Krebs originally came up with the concentrated form of amygdalin called "Laetrile" in the 1970s and introduced it to his colleague, Dr. John A. Richardson, MD. Dr. Richardson had great success with thousands of patients, pioneering the use of Laetrile along with his Richardson Clinic Protocol in Albany, CA. The incredible results of his use of intravenous Laetrile combined with metabolic therapy are documented in the book, Laetrile Case Histories: The Richardson Cancer Center Experience, co-authored by Patricia Griffin, RN wife of renowned speaker and writer G. Edward Griffin. This book also recounts the personal battle of Dr. John Richardson who incurred the wrath of orthodox medicine when he and his patients elected to use vitamin therapy instead of surgery, drugs, and radiation as the treatment of choice.
John A. Richardson, Jr., son of the late Dr. Richardson, upholds his father's legacy through the ongoing work of Richardson Nutritional Center.
