I read online: New research conducted at the University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center shows that vitamin A cures as many as 33% of patients with a rare form of leukemia -- without using chemotherapy. [article here http://www.naturalnews.com/001123.html ] - the Vitamin A was given inside Fat Bubbles - which makes sense since Vitamin A is soluble in Fat and not water - however Vit. A can be toxic in large doses and people with Liver problems should be very careful.
The Breuss Diet - strangely recommended foods that were hi in Vitamin A. Beets CarrotsCeleryBlack Radish - be very careful with this item.
I also read the following herbs helped fight Cancer:Gypsophila Paniculata [Babys Breath] [ http://www.foxnews.com/health/2010/04/29/tiny-flower-help-cu chlorellaspirulina graviolalicorice root
Although these are vitamin and herbal remedies that have some backing given by various research - not all research can be trusted as accurate. Further herbal medications in and of themselves can pose risks to the user including interactions, also people should take note that it is possible to overdose on vitamins as well so PLEASE Please read all labels and risks (make your decision an informed decision) . With any course of action involving YOUR HEALTH - a doctor is a good person to inquire about remedies you wish to pursue. They went to school for a long time and while they are still human - they might just know a thing or two that can save you some trouble..

I have a friend who as has Acute Myeloid Leukemia with poor cytogentic abnormalities. He has been through several rounds of chemo with none of them working. His blood counts are way low and not going up. The doctors are currently at a stand still, they have nothing left they can do. I myself was diagnosed with stage iv lung cancer that has mets to my bones. Currently i'm on traceva which is working for now. I try to visit my friend as much as i can but to watch him slowly go down makes my heart sink and I know i will be someday in the same bed. We are both males under 50 years old with children. Could you give me more info on this vitamin A treatment, i can't seem to be able to get on that article site.

I have AML M1, if his counts are not coming up on their own why isn't he getting injections of neupegon (sp) or alternative. If the chemo is not working then it is time to look into a bone marrow/stem cell transplant. I am rated intermediate cytogentically, but I take that as an overall response to treatment, just have to explore options.

Having said that my story is one everyone with Leukemia might want to know. That's right I said my story. This isn't some anecdotal tale of Charles S for Ca. or a story of a friend of a friend's mother from work neither am I trying to sell you anyting and no I'm not claiming to cure or treat illness. I'm just telling my story. The way i lived it,am living it.It all started when I got testicular cancer(which I actually did cure while still keeping my testicle but that's another story). My Dr and I clashed alot on how things should work so when I asked him the side effects of a certain drug he wanted to give me I guess in retrospect I shouldn't be surprised that he left out it caused a rare form of Leukemia. He knew if I knew that I would NEVER have taken the drug. And he was pretty tired of being questioned by me at that point. Anyway 3 and a half years later I developed the most agressive form of AML with the worst subtype and it didn't end there. Suffice to say Dr's said that I needed a bone marrow transplant and if I survived (it has a 30% mortality rate) that I had a 5% chance to be cured. You can imagine I wasn't so keen on rushing out and getting the full body radiation. They were able to put me in remission and I decided to forget the Dr's and go on an extremem herbal regimen.See I overheard the Dr's talking saying people usually relapse within 2 years. So that was my goal,to break the 2 years mark. Well I only made it to 19 months,but hears the rub. Apparently the 2 years time line didn't apply to my situation because of how aggressive my AML was. My Dr was 100% sure(his words) that I would relapse as soon as chemo had ended. Suffice to say he was a bit shocked to see me alive 19 months later when I came into his office with a relapse. Now I'm not saying my regimen is a cure what I'm saying is if that regimen could keep me in remission for so long imagine what it might be able to do for someone with a less severe case. And quite frankly I offensive word removed ed up. See after the year mark I started to feel normal again and let up on the regimen until in the end I believed I was healed and stopped all together. Tragic mistake on my part. Who knows how long I could have stayed in remission. As I said I am not trying to sell anything but this herb regimen is not fo the faint of heart. It is alot of herbs and can be overwhelming at time,probably why I slowed down on it when I was feeling good even though I knew better. And some of the herbs are not cheap. I am willing to give my regimen to anyone who emails me. I will try to be as detailed as possible with amounts. I only ask that you update me on your progress. I took the herbs everyday but recently think 5 days on 2 days off may be a good way to recover easier. Anyway that's my tale. I lay here in my hospital bed believing that I will be put into remission again so I can once again defy the odds. I wish you all well whatever course you choose as there are no easy roads with this disease.God Bless you allJaden S

Has the Doctor's injected your friend with neupogen or another alternative to increase WBC, ANC? If blood counts are not going up and even though his prognosis (cytogentic), it's time to look into BMT.
I haver recently been Diagnosed with AML, M1
