Hi Phile, 

i'm hoping that you will reply to me, seeing how long ago this post was made.

I was wondering what stage small cell cancer your father-in-law has, and if he is still fighting.

My mother was diagnosed in June of 2015 with extensive small cell lung cancer, and we have not had much luck. Actually, she goes in today to see how her liver is doing. She underwent 5 months of Chemo, which had stopped working. Then she tried a clinical trial of a different type of chemo that has apparently cured colon cancer. This did not work. Then, we tried an immunotherapy drug that is meant for non-small cell lung cancer which did nothing. She was just given a horrible prognosis, as she starts a new chemo. The main problem that she is having is that her liver is starting to be taken over by this cancer. We started using cannibis oils in foods and what not, so I'd be happy to share that with you. I'm hoping the treatment plan that you described helped your father-in-law, and i would love to know if it did. If your treatment plan was for Extensive small cell lung cancer, and the treatment plan has worked, I will definitely be giving this a try for my mother. 

Let me know, thanks.

My mother was diagnosed in early Dec 2015, with limited stage. she went through 4 & half months of chemo and radiation. This made her so ill that she lost 60 pounds and never got out of bed. In march she got UTI that turned into a blood infection and was put in the hospital for 3 weeks. at that point they stopped treatment to let her again some strength back. short break, as in July we found out it went to her brain 17 lesion and 3 tumors. They doctors told her she most likely only had 6 months if the whole head radiation worked if not 4 or less. It is hard to believe because considering how she was during chemo, she would seem and look to anyone that she is on the road to recovery.  

This week she seems to be displaying the same symptoms again so I am not 100% confident that the radiation worked.

I also was noticing a change in her skin, I was wonder if it hadn’t spread to her liver.

What signs should I be watching for? And does anyone have any friends or family that is over 1 year with brain mets.

Hi Christine,

Sorry to hear about your mother. My father-in-law is doing exceptionally well, now playing tennis twice a week and golf twice a week also (walking the course) at age 76. This is having been diagnosed with Stage 4 liver cancer with about a 20% chance of living another 6 months back in February 2014.

I have cut and pasted the whole plan into this for you to try. I really urge you to give it a go as it has worked for us.

Cancer Treatment Plan

This plan consists of 4 parts. It is unknown which of the 4 parts are essential to working as we do not want to change a “winning” treatment plan. It could just be one part or a combination of 2, 3 or all 4 parts.

Regardless the 3 natural treatments are inexpensive (~$13 per day), have no known side effects and do not interfere with Chemo (our experience), in fact seem to almost completely negate the side effects of Chemo.

The treatment plan we have used is;

-         Normal Chemotherapy as prescribed by traditional oncology. We are now onto the 3rdtype of Chemo (over about 18 months) as the positive effects of each type of Chemo reducing the tumors failed to work any longer.

-         6 Salvestrol Platinum 2000 capsules; 4 in the morning and 2 in the afternoon, taken with food with some exercise within a couple of hours after taking the capsules.

90 Capsules – Cost is $171

Google Salvestrols in your country (or in USA from Canada)

-          Salvacare Biotechnologies Ltd
Unit 5 Alliance Health Centre
9 Karaka Street
Takapuna
Auckland 0622

Email   E-Tea or Essiac Tea 443mg capsules; 2 in the morning on an empty stomach

100 Capsules – Cost is $37.78

Available almost any health food shop

-         Vitamin C - 1000mg per day (1 0r 2 tablets per day)

Using Airborne Tablets (Effervescent dissolves in ½ glass of water)

Probably can use any Vitamin C tablet, but Airborne have some other amino acids and Selenium, which may be important.

Airborne tablets are only available in the USA to my knowledge;

www.airbornehealth.com

Cost for 10 tablets is US$7.49 (although we purchased larger quantities in Costco, a large warehouse store chain for a lower price, I think maybe 20% less).

In addition to these four treatments we have implemented the following general changes;

-         More organic foods and more fresh vegetables and fruit

-         As little sugar as possible (Important we believe as cancer needs sugar)

-         Almost no junk fast food

-         Almost no alcohol (other than a little, small glass, maybe once a week of red wine)

Whilst our experience is with non-small cell lung cancer that has spread, (Stage 4 – terminal), the underlying theory behind these alternate complementary treatments applies equally to all forms of cancer.

The initial improvements in quality of life should be apparent within a week or two. The bad side effects of Chemo were almost non-existent, and it has definitely lengthened the expected life.

This treatment plan, in conjunction with Chemo (whichhas to done as well, as the other treatments on their own didn’t work), has extended my father-in-law’s life at least 30 months so far from a terminal Stage 4 lung cancer diagnosed in February 2014 and he plays golf and tennis almost as he used to.

The new developments in immunotherapy are so amazing we are hopeful of lasting maybe another year when these new drugs will be available for almost all cancer patients, not just for melanoma (where they are having a 20% to 40% cure rate with terminal patients), as trials for other cancers are well advanced.

We have since added (after about 9 months of good success with the other treatments) the following to the plan;

-         Turmeric in the form of Curamed BCM-95 (Curcumin) 750mg – 1 Softgel Capsule per day

Available at most health food shops

Reported that people from India have only 10% to 20% the average rate of cancer and their daily diets almost all include turmeric

Also I know of a cancer patient in Ireland who is doing the same complementary treatment plan as we are doing with now about 2 ½ years of success with stage 4 terminal cancer

-         Alpha Lipoic Acid 250mg Capsules taken 1 in morning and 1 at night, with or without food

-         Vitamin B12 Injections every 2 weeks for 8 weeks and then monthly

These treatments have been added to counter some slight peripheral neuropathy (PN) in the feet (tingling, numbness and “hot” feeling), a side effect of slight nerve damage from prolonged Chemo. This seems to have lessened the PN effects over about 6 months, and we believe would have been more effective if we had started this (especially the B12 injections) prior to starting Chemo.

If we had known about these possible extra treatments we would have started them prior, or in conjunction with, the Chemo, prior to any PN starting.

Please keep me informed as to progress if you do decide to give this treatment plan a go, together with more chemo.

Good luck and best wishes to your mother!!

Kindest regards, Phil

Hi Christine,

Forgot to say that my father-in-law has not beaten the cancer, as he still has to have chemo, but the tunours are greatly reduced, some smaller ones disappeared completely, but the last time between chemo treatments has been 11 months, so the tunours are taking a long time to grow back.

My guess is what we are doing is helping his immune system fight the cancer and slowing the growth of tumours but it needs some chemo every so often when they get too big and start affecting his health.

The other most important thing is that he has great quality of life, people do not even suspect he has any cancer , let alone stage 4. Every extra day was a miracle, now he expects to last for a few more years at worst. And he lives an almost normal life, just taking a mix of various vitamins, etc.

Not exacrly sure who is still following this cancer blog thread, but the case of people who are still suffering and are still looking, I can say my father-in-law is still with 34 months after being diagnosed with terminal stage 4 NSCLC given a 20% of making it to 6 months at the time.

The cancer by no means is beaten and he has recently had to change to another chemo type targetted drug, afitinab, as the pemetrexed had started to not be as effective, and tmours keep coming back.

His health and quality of life is very good, playing golf twice a week and tennis once a week at age 78. We have been very lucky to get another nearly 3 years so far and still counting and good quality almost all the time.

The complementary plan which I have outlined in previous blogs has worked miracles in that he has good quality of life, the rate of tumour growth we believe has slowed and he is still alive, over 2 years past what is normal for his condition.

Please give us feedback on anyone else who has tried what we have had success with.

Thanks, Phil E

Phill,

Please, do continue your updates.  I and, I am sure, many others are following your updates with interets.

How is your father in law doing?
