      I'm so happy for your mom!! I know there are some nasty side effects when you start a detox, but I don't remember what they are. I have heard of people stopping the detox because of it and thinking it was not working. I'm glad you and your mom realize it could be from the detox. Prayers for you both! Keep fighting and take care!

        Joy, I am so glad you are cancer free, and thank you for the prayers! I agree with you completely! Almost all of the cancer survivors I have found have such a large faith in God and Jesus. It's not a coincidence! If it is His will to heal you, He will.

          Darious, thanks for the baking soda/ph advice. I tried that in the beginning. I was able to get my ph up a little, but it didn't work for me. I do not have faith in chemo & radiation. The reason I posted an update is. Ecause the first message sounds like chemo & radiation cured me. It didn't. It came back. If I could do it over again, I would not do it. In my opinion, chemo and radiation don't get rid of most can...

            I just saw this post I wrote back in 2011 and wanted to update everyone. Unfortunately, my tumor started growing again in May 2011. My oncologist told me I would need to start a different chemo after my next MRI in 09/2011. I got a lot of signs from God to start eating a whole foods, plant based diet so I started eating that way the first week of June. It's basically raw and juiced vegetables, fruit, nuts/seeds, whol...

              I have a grade 3 brain cancer. I had surgery after being diagnosed in 08/2008. It kept growing and I had another surgery in 07/2009. Then I did chemo & radiation and then 6 months of chemo. It started growing again a few months later. I had cut out sugar and processed foods, was juicing vegetables but still eating hormone/antibiotic free chicken & beef and eating eggs. After it started growing again, my oncologis...

                I just had another MRI on Monday. It is still stable! ?? I have no symptoms or side effects from my grade 3 oligo. I haven't had any treatments since June 2010. I just eat a whole food, plant based diet. Praying for everyone who has cancer!

                    Just realized I haven't posted on this link for over a year. I am still alive with no symptoms! Sending lots of prayers for everyone with brain cancer! I suggest watching the movie Forks over Knives, read the books Eat to Live and Radical Remission, and go to the Chris Beat Cancer website! Take care!

                      This is just my opinion. Your dad needs to decide for himself. I think the most important thing is finding a good surgeon at a good hospital with a brain tumor board. You can find out which hospitals are top for neurology at this website:  http://health.usnews.com/best-hospitals/rankings/neurology-and-neurosurgery  Johns Hopkins is listed as #1.  Which hospital is your dad going to now? How does the ...

                      Patient
                      Brain Cancer

                      I was diagnosed with a grade 2 oligodendroglioma in August 2008. It was the size of a softball. I had surgery, but it was a partial resection. I switched to Cleveland Clinic and had MRIs every 3 months. It grew slowly so I had another surgery in July 2009. It was a partial resection because there was some functional brain in the middle of the tumor. The pathology report showed some of it was grade 3 with no deletions. I had 6 1/2 weeks of radiation and temodar. Then I took temodar from January 2010 through June 2010. I had no side effects from the temodar, but did have some hair loss from the radiation. Stable MRIs until May 2011 when it showed the cancer was growing slowly again and there was a spot of fast growing tumor cells. God gave me lots of signs to eat a vegan diet. I started eating vegan (whole foods, plant based) in early June. The MRI 3 months later showed no growth and no enhanced spot! All MRIs through February 2015 have shown no growth or enhancement! :)

                      Watch the Forks Over Knives movie for information about how diet can help you.
