i've done a search of this site, and apologize for asking members to repeat info.
my mom has been diagnosed with cancer. she is 74 and they found a tumor on a kidney, another in her gall bladder, and a shade on her liver.
they want to do biopsies but she doesn't want to go through it.
next week she begins kemo.
so far me and my sisters have convinced her to switch completely to organics.
i've sent her a bottle of ph drops and info about lowering her acidic levels. have only heard positive things about this.
what else can we do?
herbal remedies, things to help her cope with the effects of kemo etc?
due to my lack of any medical background, laymans term are appreciated.
thanx in advance.

I'm very sorry to hear about your mother. I hope everything is okay. I don't know much on the topic so please only take this as "what I have heard" it's called "Ozone treatment". here is a link. if it doesnt work just google it.

Again, this is just a suggestion to look into. I don't know for sure. Best wishes. My thoughts are with you and your mom

You, your family and especilly your Mother have my deepest sympathy and empathy. My mother died from cancer in '06 after a ten year battle against it. She found cannabis to be extremely helpful in coping with the effects of chemo. It helped against the nausea, improved her almost non-existent appetite and reduced the pain she felt constantly somewhat.

Im so sorry buddy, I can't stress this enough, im very sad for you after reading this.

This is what ile do with my parents if anything inolving cancer happens.

Id persuade her to go do the chemo, do anything they want her to and make her do the treatment, but on the side, when she's at home feeling unwell not eating to good, GET her to smoke cannabis, now im not a doctor by ANY mean's, but cannabis will help her through chemo, it will take away the sickness associated with it and it will also help her eat properly, and personally I think cannabis is rightly used in this situation and IS a lifesaver.

Good luck buddy and god's speed, I hope your mother is ok, please take my advice and use it, cannabis will pull her through chemo, and if you can, go medinical, cook up some research on cannabis and it's benefits during cancer treatment ASAP just incase she refuses, get her to do that and she will feel so much better, it's a lifesaver in these situations and countless times it's helped cancer patients through chemotherapy.

YES, hemp oil is extremely effective with cancer (oil made from the buds of the plant) despite what you hear on t.v. about this so called 'narcotic'. I would definitely recommend this.

posted on May, 11 2010 @ 11:45 AM
thank you, thank you, and again, thank you.
this is all the type of thing i'm looking for.
it does not look good, and more than anything i wish to give her HOPE.
the cannibis is a given for me, already discussed it with her, and am heading back to new mexico to be with her soon.
a vaporizer has already been ordered.

interesting, the use of oil for cancer treatment is new to me. will google and see what i can find.

edit to say, haven't watched the complete video links yet.
all of what seems relevant that is posted here is being e-mailed to my dad and sisters.
i figure the more to research the better.

heres the hemp oil site, i strongly suggest you look into this. hemp oil has cured most types of cancer.

rick simpson has had tons of success stories and very few non success stories.

i would contact him personally.

the treatment takes 90 days. she would need to consume roughly 60 grams (takes about a pound to make that..)

::edit:: also if you take this route, it would be much much much easier and cheaper to do the treatment in California (not sure where u are now). but you would need to hook up with a doctor and get what we call a "super script". this isnt the same "pot docs" that give out the normal recommendations, terminal patients get a different ID card, have different amount limits, and get their stuff at almost half price (sometimes cheaper). U2U me if u need a contact.

Hi there - I'm so sorry to hear about your mother's illness - and would like to suggest you look into Gerson Therapy at

They have had incredible success and everything is non-invasive and natural - basically its about cleaning the colon and then eating easy to digest food so your body doesn't have to work on digesting or absorbing anything and can then work on healing itself.

The colon is where nutrients are absorbed - most people have major portions of the colon impacted with old **** and wherever that happens, the colon cannot absorb nutrients. By doing a safe colon cleanse, the old stuff is removed and then that portion of the colon again can start absorbing. Then by adding to the body only good easy to digest nutrients, the body can spend its energy on repairing and healing which it CAN'T do when its spending all its energy digesting and unable to absorb nutrients.

Also try to get ahold of original Essiac Tea - I say original because years back I'd heard it had been changed just enough to not be effective - it is a combination, perhaps someone on ATS has the original recipe, I probably have it buried amongst papers.

Good luck!

ps - I researched colonics decades ago (I'm nearly 60) and got products for colon cleanses that did miraculous things to people I knew personally because once the colon is clean, the body can start repairing - I saw someone with a life long allergy to eggs be able to eat them, my father in law had major health issues and once he cleaned his colon they went away in the reverse order they'd come so that he could walk again and did not have an extremely distended stomach and rock hard patches of skin. People greatly underestimate the value of a clean colon in healing - it's critical - without it there's no point because the body can't deal with whatever your'e doing unless its freed up to do so...

Hey friend sorry to hear this information about your mother, I wish her the best with recovery. I too have a mother who suffers from many illnesses and one of the best things that have kept her strong and able to survive this long has been the support of her family us! We all know she is very ill and at times it seems almost out of controll but we as a family my siblings and I do our best to keep her happy and on a positive mindstate which in turn helps boost her internal energy or her will to survive for us. It isnt easy for sometimes I got to catch myself from shedding doubt and sadness around her as to prevent her from feeling like she is doing us some harm by her being sick, which she isnt for thats moms and we got her back. As a family we keep her generating positive energy which her doctors have claimed many times before that, that positive outlook she possess helps will against her illnessess. We dont try to go against the medicines she is prescribed but we do our best not to let the medicine become her only way to survive, because if we did she would be medicined out half the time and that can become a very lonley, boring and sad state of mind (which is room for neg. energy to grow and become effective negativly). Its basically how much we uplift her from time to time that helps her. So from this friend I wish you and your family the best in generating as much positivity around your mom and try not to look sad when you see her recieving treatment STAY STRONG FOR HER ALLOW HER TO ABSORB POSITIVE ENERGY FROM YOU for your faces tell her how she appears to you all and if she sees sadness reflected it can cause her to feel bad for putting you all through the issue upon her which is to be shared as a family which generates neg. energy. Not saying smile at everything that is clearly upsetting but do your best to hide your emotions related to sadness so you can become a vessel of happiness or light in what appears to be a sad or dark situation, GOOD LUCK FRIEND AND GODBLESS YOUR FAMILY

You can make your own oil very easily from herbal cannabis. I came up with a technique for making it a few years ago. I take it for chronic pain. It ends up 98% pure and has no traces of the solvent used.

i feel you, as you obviously feel me.
she has been incredibly positive so far, but now that she knows what's wrong i'm afraid she will start a downhill slump.
she is not in pain, but' i'm afraid the realization of how bad the chemo will kick her ass has not yet sunk in.

posted on May, 11 2010 @ 12:07 PM
i wouldnt recomend the butane method if your taking it for health reasons.

just my opinion. you never get it all out, there will forever be residual butane unless you use another solvent like 99% isopropyl alcohol...which would defeat the purpose because alcohol works fine by itself.

but to each his own.

thank you for the uk420 link.
problem is, once i get back to n.m. all that is available is swag. pissy smell, moldy. yuk, wouldn't want to injest it myself.
here in az and cali, much better is available, but transporting croos states is a serious worry for me.

does anyone know of a good source to purchase oil?
is pure hemp oil illegal?

SOunds like your doing a great job helping your mom. There is no magic one pill fix all or fix all treatment. Your approach is helping give her a more holistic approach. A good diet combined with western medical techniques and any kind of pseudo science is helpful. Even if the pseudo science doesnt physically heal her it can help her mind. Mental health and a positive outlook can go beyond and help her to survive this battle. Good luck!!!!

Hey man, really wish my best wishes to you and your family.

I'd also urge to go through with the chemo - as well as the healthy diet etc that you've mentioned.

I've had cancer in the family and the best thing for your mum, one way or another is a positive attitude on her and everyone else's part - if you can all be positive and supportive, that will go a long way AND it sounds like you're there.

best wishes

The butane process is very selective. It only picks up the useful THC, which is why it's better than using alcohol which also picks up other compounds from the plant that aren't needed. Alcohol should be used to dissolve the oil in for storage as it gets rid of any traces of butane and stops it losing efficacy due to sunlight. You can use any quality of cannabis and still end up with good oil, the only difference will be in yield.

Hope this helps.
