I must warn you that what our community can provide you with is only a small part of what you and more importantly, your mom, needs to overcome this condition.

No one here will proclaim that they can give medical advice and rightly so.

We share what we have experienced, what we ourselves found interesting or helpful, and even perhaps what we didn't find helpful.

But you must include your mom and her medical care providers in your decision-making process. Be strong for her, know that peace and serenity can and does help the healing process, but if you choose to follow the advice you have been given herein, make sure you engage both the doctors and your mom....

I wish we could say that we knew a sure-fire cure, or the perfect remedy... but many of us are still ignorant of the true causes and manifestation of the disease...

With all respect to the kind posters before me...

My best wishes for you and your family.

I am a doctor and would question the use of chemo if they don't know they primary source of the cancer, or know even the cell type. Different types of cancers can vary widely in which chemo agents to use. It seems very odd they would be using chemotherapy without having some answers to these questions first.

If you don't mind me asking, was it found on CT or MRI? Did they use contrast during the study. Do all of the lesions appear homogenous, meaning that they all appear to have come from the same source, or did they arise individually? Have they done a PET scan to see if there are other areas of involvement? Are there abnormal liver function tests or renal function tests, because they could significantly affect which chemo agents to use?

You need to ask ALL of these questions before someone simply starts "chemo" if they don't know what they are treating to begin with!

Agreed, I'm glad you mentioned the gerson therapy. That's the first thing that comes to mind for me.

To the op. Read up on the gerson therapy. I have done much research on it myself and wish I would have known about it years ago before my friends mom died of breast cancer. There is also a documentary you can watch called "The gerson miracle" if you know your web resources well enough.

Something else I've read stories about are the mushroom called tsi-ahga.
Recently I've heard stories of it literally liquefying tumors in animals so I think it's worth a shot.
Here's a thread I did on it:

Tsi Ahga

Here is where you can order some of it to strengthen the immune system and fight off such things. Good luck.

absolutely understand.
am truly only looking for ideas to research.
at this point this also helps me cope with her illness.
sitting on my hands makes me feel guilty.
a couple of weeks ago we sent her to an acclaimed specialist in houston.
in no way would i recommend no doing what the specialists tell her, yet on the other hand we all know the power and influence of the pharmecueticals.
moms willingness to try is what really gives me incentive.

pheeww, this is the type of thing i wish i could answer at this point. i'll be ther with her in a couple of weeks, and have other wise only get the info passed to me by family members.
i'm pretty sure that it did show up on the different scans. this is why the shadow, not even sure what this really is, is a danger. at least this is what the speciallists have said.
she also had a blood transfusion recently, very anemic, which is a lack of iron i believe.
she also had a bad barium, i think that's it, test.
inject in her blood and tell the docs something or other.
sorry, but this is what i meant by laymens terms and a serious lack of medical background.

Dr. Robert Beck has invented an electrical device to cleanse the blood. It is reported to cure many diseases including many Cancers. What is nice is it is inexpensive to make or purchase, with very little risk. (If I recall, you have to limit the intake of certain foods while in treatment.)

May be worth checking out.

"hash oil" = THC = gets you high = makes you feel better

"Hemp oil" = all cannabinoids (specially CBD) = what actually has the anti-tumor effect.

big difference.

If this is to be the case and you see it eventually taking a neg. effect on her stay focused for when that time arrives and make sure since you already see it potentially comming that you become the pillar of positivity friend as I sometimes have to do but again its mom and I will do whatever to help her as I am sure you will.

It is said, as you mentioned, that keeping the body slightly alkaline rather than acid is beneficial. I try to stay slightly alkaline myself. Two of the best ways of acheiving this are consuming apple cider vinegar, and lemon juice. Best to mix them with fruit juice to make it more palatable. Although the PH of these would register acidic outside the body, once consumed they metabolize to an alkaline ash. Bad acid forming foods are meat,pastry, sugar, beer,wheat, flour . alakaline formers are fruits and veg.

There are many adjuncts that have proven to be helpful.

First, it is important to realize that the presence of cancer is a failure of the immune system. We make new cells everyday to replace the old ones we lose. Some of those copies are bad, and can grow abnormally. If those cells are not destroyed by the immune system, it can turn into cancer.

As for natural adjuncts, anything that supports the immune system will help to fight cancer, generally. However, liver cells are much different than kidney cells, which are different from skin cells. Some cells types require specific types of nutrients. Especially if she is badly anemic, the nutritional support is MANDATORY! Without proper protein intake, vitamins, minerals, etc., routine tissue functions are poor, much less tissues that are fighting cancer.

One of the key attributes of plant types that have reported favorable improvements with cancer are two things: 1-high levels of anti-oxidants, 2-plants proteins with somewhat toxic tissue effects.

The anti-oxidants help to keep abnormal metabolic functions under control, largely by diminishing the effects of free-radicals. These are chemicals that can alter the cells and tissues around them

The theory behind the toxic tissues is the same theory behind using chemo agents. Since cancer cells metabolize so rapidly as they grow, if you supply toxic substances, and these cells take them in at an increased rate, the toxic materials will build up in the cancer cells faster than in normal cells. When the toxins reach a high enough level, the cancer cells die, while the normal cells have not reached levels high enough to kill them. This is why more rapidly growing tissues, like hair, intestinal linings, etc., respond more to chemo than slower growing tissues.

I don't know if I have helped, but I hope this has given you a basis for understanding what will be done, regardless of what treatment is attempted.

My prayers are with you and your mother, and your family!

of course that helps. for instance, i've heard about antioxidents, but an explanation of how they work and what they do is educating.
to explain my mind, the conspiracy theorist in me wants to worry about what caused the cancer, what outside influence.
have come to realize the more important thing is to center on the cancer in her, and possibilities of ways to fight it directly.
my sister is the one who studies more about natural healing. she even sent a friend to visit, explain meditation techniques and ways to direct positive energies to certain parts of the body.
this has all been quite an education for me.

smoke weed and think of happy things, meditate, cleanse your body with the organics and purified stuff. Or go all out with the kemo... its one way or the other, you can't half ass either way, most of all she has to know, not believe, but know she is going to be ok. I'm no doctor so I'm obviously just giving my two cents, but I really feel for your family and your mother. Best of luck, hope you all make it through. Much love

Also take a look at mushrooms, they have some amazing properties, and there is good research on there effectiveness in fighting cancer.

Shiitake, Maitake, and Reishi, are all consider helpful in fighting cancer and for boosting the immune system in general. As a bonus they taste pretty good.

Hi rubbertramp,

I''m no doctor and I don't give out medical advice, but you might want to try Dr. Bob Becks experimental research method as in these 13 videos.

If your interested in doing his experimental research methods, you'll need to watch all of the videos first though, because he tells the Do's and Don'ts. One of the don'ts is, "not to use the device if you have gotten chemo already". These devices are available for around $75 to $150 on the internet if you search around. I'd look for the ones that are made exactly like his devise, and use it as he states; that is if you are interested in experimental research on saving your moms life from cancer.

I wish your mom the best of luck in which ever endevour she takes to prolong her life and keep her life comfortably healthy. I know lots of people that have taken chemo and are still living, but I would be interested in the Dr. Bob Beck route myself.

Good Luck.

About the body being acid, try a necklace of hazel. We have a company where I live that began selling, amongst other things, necklaces or wrist bands made of hazel. It cuts acidity, diminishes tooth decay, stops heart burns, helps prevent acne, and some other stuff.
I bought a necklace, and for an hour, I felt different, and now have no more heart burns and such. I think it's best if you could avoid having your mom put more stuff than necessary into her body.
This is the link to the company that sells the necklaces. It's Amerindian technology.
My prayers to your mom!

As an HIV-poz person from South Africa I'm extremely sceptical of most herbal and alternative concoctions. However, there's a plant called Sutherlandia (Cancer Bush) that you might want to check out further.
I took it for over a year without any negative side-effects, and stopped because I don't have AIDS yet, and it stimulated my appetite. It had no negative effects but I think I should keep it for when I'm really ill. Despite no bad effect the plant is currently studied to find extracts, optimum doses and to make sure it doesn't react with ARVs or other meds.
Here's one link:

Wishing you and your mom all the very, very best.

I would also try MMS1 and MMS2:

Protocol for cancer stage I to III:
Protocol for cancer stage IV:

If you decide to try them please read carefully how to use them.

EDIT: of course I am not a doctor and this is not advice

I just happen to know personally someone that is using that for cancer stage IV.

Even as someone open to "alternatives", I would have to advise open scepticism in regards to Essiac/Essiac tea.

There are too many conflicts in the "alternative" community over the "Proper" formula.

There is no agreed upon number of herbs an Essiac preparation must contain.

Some say roots is optional, or of no importance.

Others say that the roots of a certain plant MUST be included as well, or face loss of potency or no effect at all...

There is hardly a consensus about the most effective and "True" Essiac formulation.

Almonds can help.
Red wine.
Folic acid.
Anything with a nutrient called 'boron' in it.

I recently lost an uncle to cancer, it inspired me to research as much as I could on alternative therapies and I am now taking a degree in alternative medicine. This is what I have learned:

1. Before taking any advice, make sure it comes from one who knows what they are talking about, such as the doctor here. Well-wishers abound, however their advice can be ill-informed.

2. Cancer is curable. This has been known since the turn of the century. The key here is to seek out someone who knows what the best treatment for your mom's particular condition is. Try searching for naturopathic (these guys have to do 4yrs on top of medical training, they are not "quacks!") doctors in your area. Key is to get into the appropriate treatment early.

3. Resist the chemo until the exact nature of the cause is found. The chemo will destroy your mom's healthy cells as well as the cancerous ones, and destroy her immune. It also does not address the underlying cause, just the symptoms, meaning the cancer can reoccur at any time if the initial cause is not dealt with.

4. Go organic, eliminated processed and junk foods, drink pure water, do a detox and cleanse, lots of fresh organic fruit and veg etc. Do this immediately.

5. Support with supplements that boost the immune.

6. The body will heal itself given the right nutrients, see 4 + 5.

7. Have a look at and for more information, and do a search for a Dr. Tullio Simoncini.

8. Try to remain in a positive state of mind at all times, through relaxation, keeping occupied etc.

Above all, do not blindly accept the conventional route of chemo and radiation therapy, this attempts to kill the cancer by destroying all cells, both healthy and cancerous, in the hope the cancer is killed before the person is.

Good luck, and best wishes.
