Hello,

Mom is 64 and per dr has a reoccurence of uterine cancer with mets. She had 12 palliative radiation treatments as drs cannot cure her. I am sure God can cure her, but I am looking for alternative supplements or other ways to extend her life and keep her in pain-free condition.

She is currently taking 6 caps of AHCC by Source naturals and a lot of other vitamins/supplements. I am juicing 2x daily. She also takes percocet for pains.

Has anyone used Fucoidan, paw paw extract, protocell or other natural remedies for fighting cancer, reducing tumors and/or stopping pains?

I am overwhelmed by the maze of alternative treatments. Fucoidan, AHCC, Avemar and Graviola are in the HSI reports, but Graviola has side effects.

Thanks,

ap/USA

Hello,

My wife had endometrial stromal sarcoma - she did take paw paw capsules. In the end no supplements really helped. My advice is to try whole body hyperthermia treatment, perhaps combined with low dose chemotherapy. Also Coley's Toxins have been used with late stage cancers. Generally, supplements may take too long to work - or to show any improvements - and time is running out - towards the end the disease gathers pace.

Best Regards to you all ...

Hi , a friend introduced Fucoidan from Japan when she had a stage 4 brain metastasis . The sales rep did not give hope after hearing that the cancer is in its advanced stage. We bought some anywhere but it did not help much. I guess it is much beneficial to take Fucoidan or any other supplements when the cancer is at its earliest stage .

Hello Anjela,

I know several people who are taking Fucoidan... several family members and friends. I will be upfront with you and tell you that Fucoidan is a supplement that is supposed to help build up your immune system.  It IS NOT a cure for cancer, as there currently is no cure. However, it does increase energy levels and boosts immune system which helps many people endure their chemo and/or radiation.

My family is sold on the fact that it helps, whether a lot or a little. With cancer, one can never tell but what I have noticed is that since my family members have started taking Fucoidan and undergone treatment for their cancers, they have been able to keep their appetite, feel like they have more energy, and the side effects of chemo and radiation has been minimal. Obviously, different people may respond to treatment differently.

The only thing that I can tell you, is that those that I personally know that take it, seem to think that it helps them and so they continue to take it.  In short, it's a supplement with no reported side effects.

Hello,

I have had no personal experience with whole body hyperthermia or Coley's Toxins. I have heard the german clinics have had good results with it - generally combined with low dose chemo. I also seen an Australian report on TV - a doctor with a patient who had pancreatic cancer - the patient had returned from Germany after Hyperthermia treatment - the cancer was gone - this should have been front page news - but it was overlooked. Ralph Moss of the Moss Report (you pay about $500) - had very good things to say about Coley's Toxins. It is given as a vaccine, this produces a fever - which makes the immune system target cancer cells. It is said cancer cells are weaker than normal cells - and heat can affect them. The highly regarded Australian neurosurgeon Dr. Charles Teo has said he has seen cancer cells burst from heat. The Australian Radio Wave Therapy also generates heat (radio waves vibrate the cells, a glucose block is used to starve the cancer of fuel and they die off) and has had many successes in cancer treatment. I have not used the Moss Report but it would be a good place to get advice about treatment.

Best Regards to all ..

Hello - to correct my earlier post,

The Moss Report costs $297.  For a phone consultation it's $500.

Best Regards to all ..

Out of curiosity, why would someone pay for a report? I do understand that Dr. Moss is a leading physician and consultant for Cancer treatment, but wouldn't your Oncologist already know about the treatments which Dr. Moss details in his studies? My understanding is that if there are any findings which are notable in efficacy, then the protocols would then be disseminated across the many hospitals throughout the nation as standard procedure. Unless one feels that there are treatments which Dr. Moss has not communicated to the medical field, or if there are some clinical trials taking place.

Moss is not a medical doctor.

He is a reporter.

There are patients at the alternative/complementary clinic I go to who are being treated with Coley's Toxins.  I've just done a bit of research for a close friend of my husband who has been diagnosed with colon cancer and found the following very informative.

Hopefully this lengthy url will open.
