Glioblastoma Treatment Options

I'm posting to learn about additional treatment options for my father's stage 4 glioblastoma.

My father was diagnosed with GBM in late August. He had the initial growth removed in early October and proceeded with very aggresive radition and chemo. Over the last few weeks the cancer has begun to spread. The prognosis is quite poor.

We began searching for alternative treatment options in the hope of finding something which might be able to cure him of this disease. While I have found quite a proliferation of alterative treatments, I'm having trouble understanding which treatments are legitimate and which are fads.

What I can't seem to find, is any objective, 3rd party information on the various treatment options and their actual performance. I'm hoping someone can point me to a listing of the best clinics and treatments available.

I'm also hoping someone could give me more informaiton on the following treatments which keep coming up as potentially helpful in fighting cancer:
- Budwig Diet
- Hyperthermia
- Ozone therapy
- Vitamin C megadoses
- Resveratrol

Thank you in advance for your help.

Good luck in your search. I too have been looking for GBM treatment info and am not able to get much information. At least here there are people asking for information, so I will assume that the replys are honest, rather than sponsored.

My son-in-law just started the baking soda/syrup regime so I'll know more in a month. I will post update on this message board. Please keep us ipdated on your findings. Thanks

I fully sympathize with you. My father (age 69) was diagnosed with stage 4 GBM in early Dec. It was known that he had a brain tumor in early Nov., but it wasn't until the biopsy that they confirmed the GBM. My mother and I do not agree with "conventional" methods, but my father and brothers, understandably fearful, chose to go along with the MD's recommendations for chemo and radiation. Five weeks of radiation has done significant damage, my father can no longer walk unassisted and has no short-term memory. Initially the neurologist insisted it was the effects of the cancer, but an MRI showed there was no change in the tumor. Praise God for that, but now we're dealing with radiation induced brain damage and severe weakness. 

My mother has been juicing carrots for him several times a day and has been feeding him lots of raw fruits and veggies. Unfortunately, she has not been sticking strictly to the "cancer diet" which is the best foundation for any cancer protocol. The Independent Cancer Research Foundation and Cancer Tutor websites have been a HUGE help to me (unfortunately my mom is computer illiterate). From what I've read (weeks and weeks worth) I believe the Cellect-Budwig protocol is the most powerful, fast acting, and safest (does not cause inflammation) protocol for GBM. What I have found is that there are in fact many ways to kill cancer, but if you don't address the underlying cause it will keep coming back. In a nutshell, whether you choose "orthodox" or "alternative" treatment, if you don't alter the body's chemistry back to a healthy state, the body will eventually continue to produce cancer cells at a rapid rate, unchecked. The Cellect powder claims to be able to produce this desired change in the chemistry. We have just begun administering it to my dad. My mom stopped all chemo and radiation treatments at the end of week 5 because of his rapid deterioration (again, effects of the chemo and radiation, not the cancer). We are all praying it will help him gain his strength back and begin the healing process. Others testified to great amounts of energy while taking the Cellect, even while on chemo.

Above all, pray. God is able to do more than we can think or ask. I wish the best for your father.

Hello and sorry to hear about your father.

We have stopped traditional treatments as they do not work.

Started with megadoses of vitiamin c (80 grams every other day) through a pict line and seems to be keeping tumor away..no new growth shown on mri scans.

If you go this route, buy the vitamin c through Walgreens infusion departments, will cost you much less than through doctor.

 

Best wishes.

In the Brain C forum, this info is posted about the Dr Banerji protocol. Sounds very promising:

For what it's worth, former President Reagan was cured of colon cancer by Dr Hans Neiper in Germany in 1985, using ozone/oxygen therapy. I've read that hyperthermia works very well also, and is used a lot in German clinics. Will these work for GBM ?  don't know

In large enough doses, IV Vit C is extremely effective in killing C cells. Have read that oral Vit C has very little benefit.

Dr Andrew Saul, talking about Vit C -

My husband aged 63 was diagnosed with GBM in his right temporal lope in the middle of August last year. Because of public hospitalbungles he was not operated on until middle of November privately. Neurosurgeon was able to remove most of the tumor but some tentacles were left behind. He had 6 weeks of radiation and Temodal treatment until early January this year. Now he is in the middle of 5/23 chemo treatment for 6 months. He hadMRIon 13th of April and good news was that tumor has gone. There is no sign of it.

 I don’t know if above treatment helped or Bicarb/Maple syrup doses he started on 20 of March. We also bought infrared sauna he has used about 40min daily. We thought it might help to get rid of the chemo toxins. He takes  some antioxidants and minerals on top of the normal diet.

Nappu, glad to hear you succeeded. My mother is 52 and also has glioblastoma in the front of her right temporal lope. At the moment she is gonig to her first 6 weeks of radiation and Temodal treatment, finishing her second week right now. Could using bicarb treatment do her any harm now? I didn't understand when exactly your husband started using it.

Also, is it necessary to use maple sirup and could honey replace it?

Hi ttoonnyy, I hope all is well with your mum, my husband had MRI mid January and all is well. Next Mri is in September. Paul took that maple suryp/ bicarb 3 times a day in the middle of the temodal treatment. Then in May-June 2012 he stated taking it only 1 tsp first thing every morning. In October 2012 he decided to take it only for 8 days begining of every month.

So far so good!!!

I have no idea if honey would work insted of maple suryp!

I would just like to make an update about my mom's state. After about a thrid of radiation and chemo my mom got very sick and ended up in hospital again. Surgeon told us that the therapy didn't even touch the tumor and he had hardly accepted to do the second surgery. And recovery has been going really hard - her left side has been paralyzed. We have refused to continue radiation and chemo and found nutritionist who advised us to feed her completely raw vegan. It has been about a month and 10 days after the surgery when we did MRI and results were good: there was still rest from surgery (the part they couldn't remove) 2-3mm, but it at least didn't grow. Her left side is coming back slowly and she can now walk and go downstairs with someone's help and with a stick and she feels very well, she's even quite cheerful, a lot different than after the first surgery, even though she didn't have such tough consequences. Our nutritionist advised us to go on Breuss or Gershon, which is 42 days with juices and teas only, which we still cannot do considering her situation.

This is all still in progres, but I wanted to share my experience and also my strong faith in life and in healing - don't give up easily and, you've probably heard it so many times - but stay positive. Make harmonious and safe surrondings for your loved ones and make them keep thinking about the part of them that is still haelthy and everyday life and why not, future plans.

Wish you all well
