Women who don't have BRCA mutations could have other high-risk genes that affect treatment choices

My husband (44 years) always had epilepsy which was caused by a small tumor with cyste which he had for 44 years which never grew. With medication he lived a good life. However in 2009 he fell twice on his head which has led to permanent problems with speaking and concentration. However this deteriorated and recently after an MRI scan they saw this tumor and cyste were grown a lot and they immediately operated him and removed everything. However the results are awful; it appears to be all of a sudden a very aggressive cancer Glioblastoma Multiforme IV. Thursday he will start with chemo and radiation but doctors already said his life expection will not be longer than 1.5 years.
Can anybody advise me of an alternative treatment which can stop this tumor from growing again ?

Some of the following information is dated early 2003. The results seem so exceptional especially for glioma patients it is hard to understand why this treatment is not commonly known here in North America........ now nine years later.
Department of Molecular Genetics, M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX 77030, USA.
Although conventional chemotherapies are used to treat patients with malignancies, damage to normal cells is problematic. Blood-forming bone marrow cells are the most adversely affected. It is therefore necessary to find alternative agents that can kill cancer cells but have minimal effects on normal cells. We investigated the brain cancer cell-killing activity of a homeopathic medicine, Ruta, isolated from a plant, Ruta graveolens. We treated human brain cancer and HL-60 leukemia cells, normal B-lymphoid cells, and murine melanoma cells in vitro with different concentrations of Ruta in combination with Ca3(PO4)2. Fifteen patients diagnosed with intracranial tumors were treated with Ruta 6 and Ca3(PO4)2. Of these 15 patients, 6 of the 7 glioma patients showed complete regression of tumors. Normal human blood lymphocytes, B-lymphoid cells, and brain cancer cells treated with Ruta in vitro were examined for telomere dynamics, mitotic catastrophe, and apoptosis to understand the possible mechanism of cell-killing, using conventional and molecular cytogenetic techniques. Both in vivo and in vitro results showed induction of survival-signaling pathways in normal lymphocytes and induction of death-signaling pathways in brain cancer cells. Cancer cell death was initiated by telomere erosion and completed through mitotic catastrophe events. We propose that Ruta in combination with Ca3(PO4)2 could be used for effective treatment of brain cancers, particularly glioma. More information here:

No guarantees here, but I think your best chance comes from elimination of 1) anything which tastes sweet including fruit, 2) grassy grains (wheat, barley, rye and oats), 3) legumes (peanuts, beans and peas) 4) nightshades (tomatoes, potatoes and peppers), 5) nuts. Fill in with meat, fat, white cheeses, plain yogurt, non-legume veggies, rice and moderate white corn.Cancer feeds on excess blood sugar and free glutamine. The "elimination" foods above cause excess blood sugar and free glutamine. Don't do this diet instead of conventional medical treatment. Do the conventional treatment also. Monitor the cancer, and curtail the conventional treatment when prescribed. But that's part of conventional treatment anyway.

I am sorry to hear about your husband's health struggle. I see that you are open to alternative therapies.. Have you tried anything so far? I would love to share some information with you that has helped me a lot.

Optimize Vit D levels, around 70ng/ml, and do the Banjeri protocol as Shemay has mentioned

Yes. I just went through treatment for the same thing. I had a cyst for several decades probably as the result of many head and neck injuries. I kept going to doctors and osteopaths and telling them that I could feel the spinal fluid was not circulating through my head. They just took x-rays. That of course turned it into cancer.
About 2years ago I found I could not ride my horses anymore without terrible headaches that would put me in bed for days. I quit riding. A year ago I found I could not ride in a car down dirt roads anymore and I began to fell dizzy most of the time and my brain was foggy. Then I could feel the tumor in my head. My eyesight began to fail. I was projectile vomiting. I knew from the concussions I'd had what it was like to have your brain swell. My brain started swelling. I knew at that point if I didn't do something I was going into a coma.
I called my curandera. She gave me boswellia to take a couple times a day right away. This brought the swelling down but I still had a large tumor. She also gave me herbs for fomentations to my head and neck, the breathing exercise "Shining skull breath", and a high potassium diet. She said DO NOT take potassium supplements, that is dangerous. The diet has not been easy, but when I want to eat something not on it, I ask myself, "Should I eat this today and die tomorrow?" That might sound silly to you, but to me things were that dramatic. She also did a lot of energy work with me that helped more than I thought possible.
The tumor has shrunk down to almost nothing but it's taken three months. I guess that's not so long considering how long I had it. I see her in person but I believe she has a website curanderahealing You should research the high potassium diet. I looked at many diets since then and this is the only one that really makes sense. Oh, and my spouse insists I should sell the horses, now that I'm well!

My son aged 28 was diagnosed with aggressive Glioblastoma grade 4 just over 6 weeks ago following the removal of a tumer situated above his right eye. He is currently on his 5th week of radium, and chemo, of a 6 week course. My situation is this that any information I'm assessing on this treatment seems to indicate a low success rate using this treatment alone. Is it possible to use an alternative either as a stand alone treatment or in conjunction with the treatment which he is already getting. I've been told that the use of "bitter apricot kernals" can have a benefical effect in the fight against cancer. I would welcome any feedback on this.

my boyfriend has beat it once, and is doing great fighting round 2. check out his blog with VERY detailed information in his daily routine and links to original sources that he researched.
