Renal Cancer Now In Liver

I had my right kidney removed in 2016 because if a 6.2 cenitmeter mass enveloping the kidney. I had no symptoms prior to suddenly feeling that I could not take a deep breath. It was 20% RCC & 80% a rare sarcomatoid that didn't respond well to trials or treatments. It had already spread to both lungs. I began votrient and couldn't handle it. Moved on to Opdivo and my cancer went into remission after four months. However, my immune system turned on my body and destroyed my thyroid, pancreas (Type 1 diabetic now) and gave me RA. All my scans have been clear until now. I had two spots in my liver and when I had another scan two weeks later, have more spots. Am now anemic. Biopsies show unusual results. Slides going to Boston for genetic testing. In meantime, going on Avelumab (Bavencio) and Axitinib. Anyone have any experience with these drugs? Also, anyone ever try apricot kernals and broccoli sprouts? I am curious about anything natural used. Thank you.

Hello, lost my left kidney to RCC, and went thru a whole healthy food change, which I do recommend. I learned not to overeat meat protein, eliminate sugar, etc. SO that is one step you can completely control is good real food.

I also did reading on the apricot pit thing, and ended up buying a ton of them, most still sealed in vaccum pack. You may have read certain tribes never get ancer due to eating the pits? May be true, but those suckres re not like almonds, the bitter taste is enough to turn you away. Tried grinding them up but that spreads the bad flavor longer.  If I took them again i;d get large gel caps, grind the pits, and fill the cap so as not to taste them. Some claim  they are toxic if you eat too many (due to chemical components- see article).   No idea on broccoli, but I DO eat a ton of fresh vege, steamed/salads, soups etc.  I did not have to take meds post nephrectomy, went 3 years with scans, xrays, etc. so my case may not compare. I would advise to know if there is   CKD affecting the remaining kidney.  Protecting it via diet and avoiding anything that could lower your eGFR is important.  Here is a decent article onthe pits. I wish you much good fortune in managing the cancer and keeping your heath. https://draxe.com/apricot-seeds/

So sorry to hear what is going on with you that is so similar to my husband that I had to respond!

There is hope, so please keep fighting.  

Todd has Stage 4 kidney cancer since last May 2017 when they took his right kidney out because of a softball size tumor.  He is doing well with no new cancer and all tumors gone because he is undergoing treatment with immunotherapy (Opdivo) and taking supplements (Dr. won't suggest them, so you have to ask if they are fine to take.  Most of them say yes).  He started with Votrient, so that is why I had to respond to you.  He was on Votirent for 3 months and the cancer spread.  

The supplements I am giving to Todd for his immune response that helped the cancer disappear is primarily documented in this publication.  Here is the publication that Dr. Jack Westman posted.  

http://neoplasm.imedpub.com/a-review-of-cancer-immunotherapy

Here is the information that I have learned over the years that has helped Todd fight cancer.  I found additional research regarding Beta Glucan which is exciting!  There are going to be clinical trials.  Please read:

 https://doi.org/10.3389/fimmu.2018.00341

Here is a good series of research to go through for anyone that has cancer or knows of someone who has cancer who wants to learn more:

 I think a really good video to watch is one from “Chris Beats Cancer” at www.chrisbeatcancer.com.   Also, go to www.cancertutor.com and read about cancer and cures, but be warned, there are a lot of them.

I add I’m-Yunity (now on restock for a couple of months, so just wait) which is a mushroom supplement and Beta Glucan (NOW brand on Amazon) for additional immune response as shown in the clinical trial I shared above.  Jack confirmed with me that both strengthen the immune system and can be used in preventing and treating cancer.   Here is his website:

 www.jackwestman.com

There is a good book about dealing with cancer, so it should help as well.  There is another book called “Beyond the Magic Bullet:  The Anti-Cancer Cocktail- A New Approach to Beating Cancer.”

Lastly, make sure you only drink filtered water as much as possible because you don't want your immune system to waste time on dealing with foreign matter that can be avoided.  When you have cancer, you want your immune system to focus on just that.  Don't give it any extra work, alcohol, tobacco, sugar, stress, lack of rest, bacteria, virus, etc.  Brita water filter works well.

Two great videos on how beta glucan works in the body:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CrQr1Aqkr6w&feature=yout

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gYyn4ycFvps

These supplements are a start to help your immune system work in full force, of course Beta Glucan is #1.

1.       Beta Glucan – NOW brand (Amazon) is what we order

2.       Tumeric (curcumin) with black pepper – MegaFood is what we order

3.       AHCC – Kinoko Gold (Amazon) is what we order

5.       Milk Thistle - any brand you feel comfortable with

The reason why these 3 supplements are a must is because they all help the immune system fight the cancer in conjunction with the Opdivo.  It’s a match made in heaven. 

Take Care and keep a positive additude!

 I am from the Philippines I myself also has RCC since 2017and in 2018 during my research I found CancerCompass, did not make any comment I just read all the articles. I found out that CBD or THC is added weapon in my arsenal against my RCC. 

Now at present RCC was controlled however its hard for me to keep with the diet protocol given to me by Dr. Farrah Bunch my Naturopathic doctor she is now living in the US...

To push RCC need to keep the protocol diet no carbs, no sugar, no root crops, no meat except organic meat once a month, no process food.

Weapon againts RCC Turmeric, Megadose vit C, FECO and leaves from Guyabano, Avocado, taheebo plant, organic garlic, Phyllanthus niruri Linn, oregano leaves, lemon grass, Blend together with 300 ml water to liquefy and strain then add 1/4 baking soda....

All blended herbs should be added by 1/4 tablespoon of baking soda. Drink before meal time. Good Luck and God Bless!
