Jane McLelland should only have lived about 12 weeks, according to cancer statistics and doctors, after receiving her diagnosis of Stage IV cancer nearly 20 years ago. But today, after suffering from cervical cancer, secondary lung cancer, and treatment-
The award-winning former Chartered Physiotherapist shares her incredible story at www.HowToStarveCancer.com. Life Extension, Daily Mail, Better Together with Maria Menounos and more have featured how McLelland successfully employed a method mainstream medicine largely ignores: starving the cancer with off-label drugs (using medication in a manner not specified in the FDA's approved packaging label). Now she’s on a mission to get this life-saving information to the masses.
Amazing Woman Global honored McLelland with their Lifetime Achievement Award for her work with cancer patients since 2003 and her #1 international bestseller, How to Starve Cancer Without Starving Yourself, won the New York Big Book Award, Janey Loves Health Book Gold Award and GTeX Social Impact Award.
After her terminal diagnosis, McLelland began digging through medical journals, poring over long-forgotten research and overlooked evidence, searching for clues.
She learned that in 1931, Otto Warburg won the Nobel Prize for discovering that cancer cells have an altered metabolism – they ferment glucose to produce energy. Since then, more research has expanded on his initial studies, and has revealed that cancer cells require a tremendous amount of not only glucose, but also glutamine (and other amino acids), as well as lipids.
Based on this concept, McLelland developed her own cancer-starving cocktail utilizing diet, supplements, and off-label drugs that proved to be more effective than any current cancer treatment. These were low toxicity and included drugs such as metformin and a statin. The key was to block the fuel lines to the cancer cell without starving herself.
Mainstream medicine primarily uses chemotherapy and radiation as the two key treatments to target the tumor’s abnormal fast-dividing cells but given that chemotherapy has poor outcomes for stage IV (classified as terminal) cancer, McLelland decided she had to attack her cancer from two fronts: starve and weaken the cancer’s stem cells, and then kill them while they were down.
McLelland says chemotherapy leaves behind cancer stem cells that can quickly adapt and mutate to spawn a new tumor and that you want to eradicate both types of tumor cells at the same time. She says most people are unaware that tumors contain these metabolically flexible cancer stem cells and that chemo and radiotherapy can’t cure you if you don’t eradicate both.
Now, 22 years later, after suffering from cervical cancer, secondary lung cancer and treatment-related myelodysplasia (cancer she developed as a result of treating the cervical cancer with chemotherapy and radiation), McLelland is alive, well, cancer-free and even has a family – something she never dreamed possible with her initial prognosis.
McLelland says people don’t truly understand cancer and that patients are thrust into a world in which they are helpless and must rely completely on their oncologist. It’s difficult for them to advocate for themselves because they don’t even really understand how cancer works as the clock ticks against them.
McLelland teaches patients how cancer feeds so they can stop the relentless growth by combining traditional treatments with agents that block the cancer metabolism. Without constant food supplies, cancer cells wither away and die. This approach increases the effectiveness of conventional therapies and, because it eradicates the stem cell, helps stop the treatments becoming resistant – the reason most ultimately fail.
She did not want to write a book because she did not want to relive such a traumatic experience, but she felt a social responsibility to share this critical information people weren’t getting elsewhere. Since she approached cancer with a different perspective, she created a unique and simple ‘Metro Map’ triangle illustrating the key metabolic pathways that must be blocked.
So now there is How to Starve Cancer Without Starving Yourself (4.6 stars; 2,525 ratings), How to Starve Cancer… and Then Kill It with Ferroptosis (4.9 stars; 36 ratings), her online course (which Dr. Etienne Callebout, MD hails “a labour of service to mankind”) charting the landscape of cancer metabolism in a new way that everyone can understand and her private Jane McLelland Off Label Drugs for Cancer Facebook group has 50,000 members and growing.
McLelland’s method can be done in tandem with mainstream medicine such as chemotherapy and radiation, so cancer patients don’t have to choose one versus the other. McLelland works with oncologists all over the world, as listed on her website, who follow the principles of her approach with many remarkable recoveries and testimonials from happy doctors and patients

Bio: Jane is Winner of the Lifetime Achievement Award 2019 ‘Amazing Women Global’ for unsung heroines, for her work educating and helping cancer patients since 2003. She is trained as a Chartered Physiotherapist, gaining a distinction in her exams and winning the Sarah Leeson Memorial Award for the most promising student. After qualifying she worked in the NHS and private practice for 12 years specialising in Neurology and then Orthopaedics when she left the profession to pursue more entrepreneurial endeavours. In 2002 she launched a range of toiletries and a uniquely-designed waterproof book under the brand name BATHrobics and the following year she won the coveted UK Gift of the Year Award. Throughout this time (from 1994 until 2004), Jane battled two aggressive cancers with metastatic spread, both were classed as ‘terminal’. Using her medical knowledge and researching heavily, she put together a cancer-starving formula, using natural therapies, exercise and diet. When she developed a second cancer, myelodyspasia, the result of chemotherapy and radiotherapy for her first cancer, she knew she only had weeks to live. With nothing to lose, she put together a unique cocktail of old drugs. To her enormous relief, joy and surprise, her cancer just ‘melted away’. Her cocktail was more powerful than she had ever hoped.
About How to Starve Cancer Without Starving Yourself
After being given a terminal diagnosis with only a few weeks to live, Jane threw herself into research. Already medically knowledgeable as a Chartered Physiotherapist, Jane dug up research, some decades old, in her quest to survive. Rather than aiming to cure cancer, which in many cases is unachievable, Jane’s approach was to stop it growing. Remarkably her approach not only stopped it growing, it disappeared altogether. There are now clinics following her protocol, achieving remarkable successes. This book is a game-changing new dawn in the treatment of cancer.
Not just a page-turning inspirational read, Jane’s remarkable life story is how she discovered a unique cocktail of off label drugs (drugs usually prescribed for other conditions) and supplements that effectively starve the cancer stem cell, the cell left behind by conventional treatment and why cancer is deemed incurable. Treatment for the stem cell is hailed as the Holy Grail, so this book plugs the missing piece into why we do not have a cure for cancer. Lead cancer researchers at top oncology centers are now using this book to investigate these cheap low toxicity drugs (Pharma has no interest) and Jane has a huge following of thousands on Facebook who use her Metro Map. Testimonials abound from happy and delighted patients and national press, TV and radio have covered Jane’s ground-breaking research.

An international publishing sensation. This page-turning inspirational read is updated with a new 'Metro Map', Jane's unique and revolutionary route map to starving cancer. A glossary and index will also be included. Written in two sections, in Part 1 Jane intertwines her remarkable life story of 'terminal cancer' to full recovery, describing how she discovered a unique cocktail of off label drugs (drugs usually prescribed for other conditions) and supplements that effectively starve the cancer stem cell, the cell left behind by conventional treatment. Treatment for the stem cell is hailed as the Holy Grail, so this book plugs the missing piece into why we do not have a cure for cancer. Lead cancer researchers at top oncology centers are now using this book as a guide and Jane has a huge following of tens of thousands on Facebook. Testimonials abound from happy and delighted recovered patients and from oncologists who use her methods. National press, TV and radio have already covered Jane's ground-breaking research. Much more is in the pipeline with two documentaries and a possible movie in the future. Jane won the 'Amazing Women Global' Lifetime Achievement 2019 and the New York Big Book Award 2019.
