Partners even more likely than survivors to experience fear and worry over long term, study finds

On Decamber the 15th I posted a message asking if anyone had tried hemp oil treatments. I decided to make it and try it on my husband. He hasn't had chemo since July because something always happens to prevent him from having it. We have miss 2 apointments for chemoembolization because of a fever. Decamber the 16th we were suppose to have the chemoembolization but once again he had a fever so they sent him home but they ran a cea on him before we left. This morning we went in once again for the chemoembo and they ran another cea, on the 16th it was 1058 and today without any chemo or treatment other than the hemp oil I have been giving him since the 17th his cea was 740!!! He has clorectal cancer with mets to the liver and lympnodes, he has been smoking it for about a year and a 1/2 to promote hunger, his lungs are still free of any cancer! When I asked someone about what the difference would be from smoking it and eating the oil I was told that smoking it goes to the lungs and brain but eating it will filter through the liver and distribute through the whole body. Just wanted to let others know about this and our resaults at this point. I will post at next cea testing. We are suppose to start Avastin again soon but until then I will keep feeding him the hemp oil.

Thanks for sharing, very interesting. Keep us posted of the next CEA levels. It certainly can't hurt to try. I would consider the oil, but not smoking just because of the risk for lung cancer, especially if you already have a cancer.

One of the odd things is that he has been smoking it to promote appetite and the cancer has not spread to the lungs. He was diagnosed with stage 4 colorectal with mets to liver and lymph nodes 2 years and 2 months ago. They gave him only 2 months to live at the time. When we looked at last scan with his oncologist he kept double checking the lungs when I asked if it was unusual for him not to have cancer in his lungs at this point he said that it was very unusual and he was perplexed. The only thing which I didn't tell him is that he smokes it through out the day.
I asked a medicinal supplier why the oil is better and he told me that when you smoke it it only reaches the lungs and brain but when you ingest it you distribute it through out the whole body.

Thanks so much for the info. My mother has been diagnosed with mets to the liver after having had part of her colon removed. She is so scared of having chemo but has been given only 6 months to live. For me she is having the chemo (line is being inserted this Wednesday, chemo begins Thursday) I am trying anything right now. Have found suppliers of hemp oil here in Australia, tomorrow we are going to phone them and see what they say. I have just put her on carrot juice, she can't eat a thing but still drinks plenty. I will try anything at all. Really pleased your husbands cea levels were down, great news will wait to hear what his next results are.
All the very best

Make sure that it is real hemp oil. You cannot buy real hemp oil in a retail store. The hemp oil sold in stores is made from hemp seeds. You want a high THC level and it needs to be high in Indica. Most medicinal marijuana has these levels you need. The video on how to make it is on the Phoenix Tears site. Rick Simpson also tells you what type of marijuana to use. Has medicinal marijuana been legalized in Australia? We live in IL and it's very very close to being passed here. The reason you need the high indica level is because it promotes sleep and hunger, if it is high in sativa it causes the cranial ( high) and that is not what your going for. Rest helps your body heal and a lot of times people with cancer end up dieing from starvation so you want to induce the hunger. My husband is also on a liquid medicine that is suppose to make him hungry but it does not work if it weren't for the marijuana he smokes he wouldn't eat at all and he very well could have mets to the lungs by now. I would not of posted any of this if I didn't feel there was something behind the claims, I know that when people are faced with cancer they will look anywhere for a cure. I have read and tried just about everything out there with a claim. The only other thing I have found that seemed to work was the no sugar diet but that was really hard for him to stick to. This has been the only thing that has given quick results, or so it seems to be. I just don't know how else to explain the no mets to lungs and cea levels going from 1058 to 750 in two weeks without any treatments! Please go to the Phoenix tears site and watch the videos. I also looked up everything I could on Rick Simpson and couldn't find anything negative about him or his findings. He's not selling anything where most of the people out there have something to sell,usually a book or vitamins. He just wants people to know about this in order to help save lives at no charge!
Hope this helps

Hi Michelle, thanks for making sure I had the right hemp oil, typical of me I had the wrong one. On researching a bit more I found the right one on a cancer support site and no it hasn't been legalized over here even though it has been acknowledged as helping cancer patients. Might give them a ring anyway and see what they have to say.
In the mean time, take care

demethylating agents such as green tea or feverfew will help unblock cb1 receptors which many cancers do. this should help anyone using this method to shrink those tumors faster.

I was wondering how your husband went with the Hemp oil treatment for cancer? I've heard amazing stories about medicinal benefits of Hemp oil. Also, I was hoping you could point me in the right direction where to get the pure Indica Hemp oil in Australia which has high levels of THC.

It's too bad you can't get in Austrlia, here in the states it varies from state to state. I live in California and it is legal to have a medical marijuana card here, although with all the regulations and rules once you do find a good supplier they are closed down because they didn't dot all their I's and cross their T's. I have never thought of using the oil, we use the oil to make a base to make ateables, such as brownies, cookies, I did hear someone say they used the oil on salads, might be worth a try. I don't smoke it because just not my thing but the pills helped me the most, they have different strengths, and different types stativia and indigos, depending on what you are using it for they tell you which to purchase. My daughter uses it for her fibromyalgia, and it has done wonders for her, we had taken her to several different doctors and they put her on all kinds of medications but nothing worked until we used the medical marijuana, and because of her success when I developed colon cancer and was so sick, couldn't keep anything in my stomach, very weak and my whole body ached with severe pain this was the only thing that helped me get back to myself. I also used the lotion, made with the oils, I would rub it on the sensitive areas and within seconds I could feel a difference. So if you are able to get it, it does work. I was a skeptic and I worried about what other people would think before, but after getting cancer you got to just think of what works best for you and not worry about what others think. So, good luck to you all and please let us know how your husband is doing.

Did you or your loved one seek a second opinion before starting cancer treatment?
No, but we got a second opinion after we started treatment
