Navarro test is a non-conventional cancer screening test that is fairly popular with alternative cancer treatment proponents. Developed by Dr Manuel Navarro during late 1950s, this test is considered accurate as well as an early detector for many cancers. While most conventional cancer screening tests involve serious risks or target only one cancer, Navarro test is devoid of any risk and detects symptoms associated with most, if not all cancers.
As per Navarro medical clinic’s website and numerous other online resources, Navarro test detects the presence of brain cancer as early as 29 months before symptoms appear, 27 months for fibrosarcoma of the abdomen, 24 months for skin cancer and 12 months for cancer of the bones. Currently, many cancer patients take advantage of the diagnostic accuracy of this test as an indicator of the effectiveness of their specific mode of therapy.
Based on the theory of Dr. Howard Beard(at end of this post), Navarro test relies on presence of abnormal quantity of HCG hormone in urine. Normal titer of HCG in blood or urine is less than 5 mIU/ml. Dr Beard found that all cancers raise HCG level significantly. Navarro test measures the quantity of HCG in urine. Patients follow simple directions for preparing a dry extract from the urine sample. This powdery extract is mailed to the Navarro Medical Clinic in Philippines where the HCG testing is performed.
A test score of 50 (That is 50mIU/ml) or above, means, you probably have cancer. While a score below 50, means, you likely do not have cancer. Thus, if your first test score was 52.7 and second test score is 51.5, your alternative cancer treatment is most likely working. However, if your first test score was 52.7 and second score is 53.9, you might want to look at other treatment options.
Cancer patients use Navarro test score to measure the effectiveness of their treatment. But people without cancer can take Navarro test to get an early warning or, to rest assured.
Nevertheless, this test, that is based on the same principal as Navarro test is, costs less than $4.00 and can be done at home. Though not as accurate as Navarro test, this test is good enough to detect abnormal quantities of HCG in urine and can be used as an indicator to go for a full fledged Navarro test.

Urine, instead of blood or serum, is the preferred medium for the test. In 1980, Papapetrou Sakarelou and Braouzi reported the correctness of the urine specimen to be used in HCG Immunoassay.
In 32 proven cancer cases, the urine test gave 31 positive results while only 12 positive results were reported using blood. HCG has been found to undergo glycosylation(The process of adding a sugar or sugar chain to a protein or fat, for example on a cell surface membrane) in the liver as it travels in the hepatic circulation. Thus, the HCG molecule cannot be detected. The molecule does not undergo this process in the kidney and therefore remains intact in the urine.
No sexual contact for 12 days for female patients before collecting the urine sample. For males, no sexual contact from 18- 24 hours. DO NOT SEND URINE IF THE PATIENT IS PREGNANT.
Should you be interested in understanding the significance of abnormal HCG rise in cancer, this article by Ruth Sackman is of great value.
Dr. Howard Beard, a biochemist and cancer patient, found that he could monitor his cancer by doing the human chorionic gonadotrophin (HCG) immunoassay to determine how actively his body was producing unnecessary cells or controlling cell production at a normal level. This HCG test is used to determine pregnancy, a natural process, whereby the body is producing excess cells for the development of a fetus. Dr. Beard’s theory was that if HCG levels rose but no fetus was developing, then abnormal cell production was taking place which, to him, signified a cancer problem. Dr. Manuel Navarro agreed with this philosophy and established a measurement to diagnose cancer. A tumor would not be clinically evident immediately but in time might manifest a mass in men as well as women.
Two scientists with the West London Hospital, Helen Davies and S.F. Contractor were interested in one of the most mysterious biological processes —how the body knew when birth was ready at the end of nine months gestation. They reported in the British journal Nature that they believe birth is really a process of rejection initiated by the body’s own defense system. The reason this rejection is controlled is because above normal amounts of HCG appear in the mother’s urine during pregnancy. HCG, they believe, prevents the mother’s sentry cells (lymphocytes) from recognizing the foreign protein (fetus). Th HCG levels remain high until just before birth when a drop in HCG triggers the rejection of the fetus and birth occurs. Without such recognition, rejection cannot take effect, ergo, when the HCG concentration is above normal on the HCG test, cancer cell rejection does not take place.
Therefore, Dr. Beard’s theory of measuring HCG levels has a sound scientific basis. Low levels of HCG allow the body to reject abnormal protein just as it rejects the fetus, and high levels interfere with the body’s ability to build the lymphocytes necessary to effect rejection of cancer cells. This theory validates Dr. Beard’s conclusion that the HCG measurement found in the urine was a competent system to diagnose and monitor cancer.
