MT, are you still around?

What do you think about this VitC therapy, since you are the VitC expert

May I make a suggestion? Please consider the raw food approach to overcoming cancer. There are powerful accounts of recoveries due to, for example, drinking large amounts of fresh juice (carrot, grapes or wheatgrass). I know someone who recovered from colon cancer through diet after being "given" 6 months to live by the doctors. Our bodies are incredible, they can recover from almost anything if they are given the chance. Please consider this option - you can recover better health than you've had in years (or even decades).
I don't even know where to start. But I will tell you this-I've learned, through our battles with Dad's cancer-that cancer likes insulin. Keep your blood sugar as stable as possible. Spikes are bad. There is a lady-Joanna Brandt, I beleive-who did a grape cure for cancer, can't speak for the efficacy of it.

We looked at topical cesium chloride, Dads oncologist says it works-but if you do any other treatments besides (which Dad wouldn't consider) it makes the side effects so horrendous they are not tolerable.

DMSO looks promising as well. Vitamin C (see Linus Paulings work) in large doses-several hundred grams at a time-are effective as well on some types, again, can't speak for personal experience, because dad didn't go that route (yet), but it has been discussed. You will need a port inserted-probably near the collar bone, for the infusions. Oral Vitamin C (ascobic acid and/or sodium ascorbate as well as potassium ascorbate-there are differences as to which is best and when-see Paulings work for more details) is helpful too-take to bowel tolerance-if you can get there.

Finally, graviola has helped slow Dads tumor progression-and he has an extremely aggressive form of cancer (neuroendocrine w/ the SV40 virus).

That being said, good luck. I have more people in my prayers these days from cancer than I know what to do with! I just hope it helps.

Just wanted to catch up with you all, not sure if you are still following my journey, but I'd like to have some documentation for myself anyway

About a month and a half ago, I was in a really bad place. I was not the strong optimistic mama who has been posting on this thread. I was really regretting the surgery and focusing on that. Also, a family member told me that everyone in the family thought I was.....terminal, and my health took a nose dive. I heard the word in slow motion even and it felt like I was socked in the stomach....like one of those cartoons were the character gets hit in the stomach w/a canonball and the whole stomach goes backward? Well, that is what it felt like, and continued to feel like for a couple of weeks, and no matter what, I couldn't shake it. It was awful. And as I dealt w/all this negativity, my tumor grew. And as the tumor grew, I became more and more depressed. It was a viscious cycle.

Well, finally, I spent an evening going online researching cancer stuff and on one of the websites it was written (something along these lines), "second and third stage cancers can be cured easily...." and it was about natural stuff. For whatever reason, this brought me back and I have been feeling better than I have ever felt. A friend said it sounded like I went through a healing crisis, and without a doubt, I know I did.

So I'm over here now, doing great I'm doing Kundalini yoga daily which is so helpful to my body and still taking a slew of supplements and such. I'm going to be starting the IV VIT C in a couple of weeks and I'm looking into GEIPE tx than another mama PM'd me about. BUT....I'm really feeling like these things are great and all, but, with or without them, my body is already healing--supplements or not. So I'm thinking I'll do them to give my body a boost, but that my body is going to heal anyway.

So, in terms of the tumor, it is about peach size and.....it is trying to come out of my armpit. Yes, I am birthing a tumor and I can see the head!! Actually, not the head but a portion of it is sticking out of my now opened up scar. I've been wearing a raw garlic/castor oil poultice 24/7 and I keep growing a huge ol' blister that pops in a couple of days as the tumor moves up and out. Absolutely fascinating. I'm feeling some pain, but as I concentrate on it, it is because my skin is stretching to accomodate it, and the pain is actually this stretching---a ring o' fire if you will. I'm not exactlly sure how the tumor is going to come out, but I'm confident that it will; I just need to trust.

Hope you all are well,
Amy

Thanks for updating us Amy. I do think about you and wonder how things are.

Hi Amy,

Thanks for checking in. I'm sorry about your low spell, and glad to hear things are looking up again.

What a journey! I guess, truth be told, all of us are 'terminal', no? Try not to worry about what others think or believe. If there is one unpredictable thing in medicine it is the natural course of any given malignancy, that's for sure. For every type of cancer that scientists predict shorter term survivial, you can find individual people who have lived with those cancers for 20 years or more. Them's just the facts.

But don't be tough on yourself or your loved ones over how your cancer is 'going'. Things will happen as they will. Don't feel as though you have superhuman control over everything - you don't, dear. You're just one of us humans, sweetie :.

And you're doing just great .

Was thinking about you yesterday. Thank you for the update. You will be in my thoughts.

P.S. Don't forget, Amy, we don't want to hear from you just when you're strong and feeling 'up'.

We want to hear from you ALL the time - including when you're feeling down, and discouraged, and just need someone to listen.

Namaste, good mama!
