Categorizing tumors by cell type and not the organ they grow in may alter treatment, experts say
by sylvanmarcel on Thu Mar 18, 2010 05:29 AM
Hi all, I've been given the 'all clear' of cancer which was the best news ever! I did undergo the initial run of chemo and radio but than decided to continue with just an alternative approach. I've written a report on my journey back to health which will hopefully assist others. I've compiled quite a bit of information on nutrition, treatments and on mind and body work. If you would like to receive a copy I would be happy to email it as hopefully it will be beneficial for you or for your loved ones. Love and Health, Sylvan

hah, i guess it is free, but no thanks, i don,t like tofu and healthy life styles anyhow, take all the fun out of the time i have left

...well indeed it is free as that is why I created a pdf that I could email, I have no intention of making money out of helping people to beat cancer. And it is just my story about all the problems I've encountered, the challenges I've had to face and the alternative treatments and foodstuffs that I have tried, nothing more, nothing less. I'm not a cancer specialist, just a survivor. It irritates me that people always seem to have opinions before even making themselves knowledgeable about what they have an opinion about. That goes both for your judgement of me as for your comment about what is supposedly in the report. I'm not forcing anyone to follow a 'healthy' lifestyle as everyone responsible for your their own choices, mine was to beat cancer...

One more question to you David, if you do not have the intention to cure yourself, why are you on a cancer forum?

My husband is doing a lot of alternative things like you and I applaud you for sharing. There is just not enough of these success stories on the web. I have been writing Washington trying to get supplements covered by insurance. When we first decided not to do chemo we were really condemned for it, now its over 2 1/2 years. Great book Knockout by Suzanne Sommers.

what type of alternative treatments is your husband trying and how is he doing? I can't say much good about chemo and the successrate with chemo on colon cancer is about 2% so nothing to write home about. I've had 2 runs of chemo as that was what I was pressured to do. Beating cancer is as much as taking control over you own life and making your own decisions even if every single Dr. disagrees. I've finally found a dream of an oncologist, she's the best what could have happened to me and she supported my decision not to go for surgery. I've stuck to my new diet and am still enjoying it. Did your husband ever have chemo? Insurance companies can be most unhelpful when it concerns monies vs life. I wish you all the best!

That is very loving of you to offer it to the world. Why not write a book or speak to someone who would be more than happy to share your techniques? (*Ahem, writer here!) I would be more than happy to help; even if you want to just tell your own story and setup a webpage.
Stay strong and keep that positive outlook. This is truly amazing and I am so happy to hear stories like this; a huge congratulations. I can only imagine the way you see life now.

Hey Maya, thanks for your reply :-) I was initially thinking of writing a book but thought there were so many out there already and felt it was better to just have something that was free and email-able so that it could spread from there. It has become a 56 page 'book' but a lot of info is from others although I've edited it quite a bit . My story is obviously my own. Maybe have a look at the document and see if it has potential for more or in any case advise is always welcome as I'm busy with some new chapters.
The current document is outlayed as followed:
Page 2 The Joy of CancerMy Journey Back to HealthPage 8 The Positivity IndexThe Guide to GuidePage 9 Day to DayA Day in the Life of...Page 10 The 7 Steps to HealthThe Things I Did and the Things I want to DoPage 17 Beyond the CavemanTips for Dealing with Chemo and Radio TherapyPage 18 Fibre Content in FoodA Complete List showing the Fibre Content in FoodPage 19 Power Your BodyWhat to Eat and What to BeatPage 24 Inform YourselfThe Internet - The Cure at your FingertipsPage 25 Cancer Therapies, Diets & ProtocolsWhat Else is out There?Page 38 Foods with Highest Omega 3 ContentOmega 3 Essential Fatty Acids explainedPage 42 Food for ThoughtDetailed Information on Cancer Fighting FoodsPage 48 Supplements‘Nature’ in a BottlePage 54 A New Beginning Where to from Here
Hope to chat soon. And life indeed has changed, I tend to go more with the flow and not worry about things to much, waste of time.... :-)
