I can imagine I am not the only one that becomes obsessed with finding a 'cure' for a loved one. I can't sleep for thinking I might be one click, one page away from finding the answer. Today its Dandelion root. Is there really anything in this? Is the tea as effective as the pure oil? When they have these stories of john dos that have been cured by these herbal remidies why is it not more known?
I've looked for so many it's ridiculous. My phone is glued to my hand. I'm at the point anything that has a chance of working I'd ask him to try
It's so hard isnt it! Alot of these natural remidies are not safe to take while having chemo. My dad hasnt started yet but he will after his bone treatment in 8 weeks time. You always see that they are doing studies and trying to turn these natural alternatives into drugs. Why dont they just tell us to get it from the natural source surely that is better. I know they say its all a money making thing but here in the uk the NHS would much rather everyone did not have cancer. Yet there doesnt seem to be alot of these studies being done in Uk. Yesterday it was lemon peel, did you hear that one?
Kelly Munson I’m in the uk too! Everything here seems to not be moving x
Exactly!! By the time he starts chemo he will be 5 months from diagnosis ... He is stage 4 its already in his bones. 5 months is too long!
It really is, my nan is being treated with chemo, but it’s doing nothing apart from giving her an horrendous rash, tumour isn’t shrinking nor growing, McMillan have been rubbish too:( no show from nurses, no advice and support) I have how the nhs deal with patients over here x
Really sorry to hear that nadine, it so awful to just sit back and watch as they fail us xx
I was like this until my nan told me to stop
You just want to feel your doing something to help. Im sure my dad willl be fed up of me by now
Exactly, my nans gone as far as to not tell me what the consultant says to shut me up lol
people have been selling snake oil for centuries - be careful
just remember if it really worked we wouldn't be here
Without seeming disrespectful, I don't believe this is true. Cancer isn't something that doctors want to cure, it brings in alot of money and is one of the biggest killers, keeping the world from becoming over populated. Just my opinion, this is what I believe.
Melissa I feel you have a point to an extent. But I’d like to add. I think that there is a race for a cure. (Big money). I think they (doctors and big pharma) would be happier keeping people alive and sick then them dying. You can make more money from a sick person than a dead person.
So there's a world wide conspiracy to prevent a cure?
I personally believe that they won't bring out a cure for cancer, not because they can't but because they don't want too. That's just my opinion though, others are welcome to believe what they want.
Today I’m doing the lemon ginger blast. YT it. It comes right up by a guy named Lou. Lemon is alkalizing and ginger reduces inflammation.
Let me know how you go donna, will have a wee look online.
Kelly Munson ok. It’ll be my first try at it. Sounds delicious and naturally good for us.
Currently looking it!
Thank you donna!!
My mum takes turmeric tablets, worth a try if haven't already.
They say turmeric gets absorbed into the bloodstream with black pepper. Wonder if her supplements have pepper in it.
I haven't checked but I will see next time I'm round. Does this mean they aren't likely to work? She has lung, liver and bone cancer.
Mellisa Carlisle all of the reading I’ve done said that’s how it’s absorbed.
Will try anything but dont want to overload him. The vegan juicing diet is not only something people talk about online, my friends mum lived 15 years alot longer than expected when switching to a vegan diet. I think my dad would try anything. We have decided to go down the vegetarian/vegan lifestyle ourselves x
While I’m not totally vegan or vegetarian, I eat mostly fresh from the earth. Maybe every 5-6 weeks my body will ask for steak. I do eat chicken and fish. I veggie juice and make fruit smoothies.
Well deffo cant try the dandelion root extract as it messes with chemo... Just got the call an hour ago dad starts chemo first this friday ..
I think juicing is amazing.
susan do you juice?
For cancer reasons i meant ?
Rick Simpson Oil
Can anyone in any State order it?
It can not be purchased. You have to make it at home.
CathyAnne Greer ooohhh! I’ll check out recipe online.
Check out this video on YouTube: https://youtu.be/5ZK-1hQ9QbQ
CathyAnne Greer ty!! I’ve heard of it a lot!
I have researched since June, and have talked to dr's and other people with the same type of cancer to reach my conclusions, but I still learn new things daily, we are doing both THC and Cbd oils, tumeric pills, VitC, apricot seeds/pits, exercise daily, frankincense oil, I check daily for symptoms just like the doctors do, I look to see any yellowing in the white's of the eyes, look at the mouth and throught, listen to chest for congestion, he had a black dot on lip that has now went away but it was there months before diagnosis, and was connected to the cancer, so I watch for that to come back too. Dasina water or aqufina daily because it has reverse osmosis, no tap water, and healthy diet is needed too, but right now he is just eating what he can.
sarah sounds like you have both done some good research. I have never heard of tue fracensense oil though?
I ordered it through doterra but I am sure there are other brands, but this one is better quality.
we also bought a very high quality juicer and will be doing that soon.
Sarah Burkett, juicing is great.
sarah I understand masticating juicers are better than configurators? Which one did you buy? I am wondering if i buy a configurator (as there seems to be a considerable price difference) I could juice the veg then take the 'waste' and put it through the juicer again to get the most out of the veg?
susan hope you dont mind me asking.. Did you come across juicing to treat yourself?
Will deffo look into that. Hoping to convince my dad to do the juices.. Just found out chemo now starts this friday. Think it has really hit him x
I believe everyone here who has a loved one dose the same thing because your never ready to lose someone you love i feel you must leave it in gods hands trying all the things they say that work may make it worse.
Dwayne tried everything. Chemo radiation cbd oil no sugar high protein juicing and finally immunotherapy. God had other plans unfortunately.
Really sorry to hear about your husband lisa... It is good to hear everyones stories so I can get a sense of what to expect rather than having my head in the clouds. In saying that the juicing is something my dad has now agreed to do but its a massive lifestyle change.. İ hope he copes
I think it is human nature to want to do something positive and assertive to deal with a problem we face. It makes us feel less helpless in the face of a monster like cancer. Juicing is harmless and can only help but I agree with Shirley Arnold Carruthers below. I would be careful spending a lot of money or doing anything risky or unproven.
Desperate people will try anything to find a cure that may not exist. Sorry that you are in this position. I hate that there are those that prey on desperate people - it is not only the financial drain but this is an emotional rollercoaster without the false hope. People litrally spend their life savings on something that at best does not harm but is not a cure. Talk to the specialists. At times there are clinical trials which are not proven, but you are monitored all the time. That is the only time I would try something that was not proven to work.
