Re: Colon Cancer with mets to liver

I wonder why some people respond well to chemo while others do not. Could there be a reason why his tumors have not shrank? I second the suggestion of going to a major cancer center or large hospital with a good reputation for oncology.

You can lead a horse to water but can't make them drink. She has to have the will to live. Hopefully, she will take your advice but don't beat yourself up if she doesn't.

Re: SLIGHTLY OFF TOPIC Milkweed Sap for Skin Cancer

jep, I had been trying that since I discovered it but it wasn't making much of a difference. The file only removed the top layers and this thing resides in the lowest layer of epidermis.

Re: Salami

My genetics predispose me to cardiovascular disease as a MTHFR mutation I inherited makes my blood hyper-coaguable (sp?). I was truly astonished by my test results.

We just ran out of decaffeinated green tea extract this morning so I am buying some right now!

Re: SLIGHTLY OFF TOPIC Milkweed Sap for Skin Cancer

Having played around with milkweed sap before and not feeling anything caustic about it, I was skeptical about it having any effect on my skin tag. I put it on last night and I did feel a very slight burn about 90 minutes after application. I will do another one tonight.

Re: SLIGHTLY OFF TOPIC Milkweed Sap for Skin Cancer

Very interesting information, grouseman. Thanks for sharing. I came across some other uncommon treatments for plantar warts which are actually recommended by the American Academy of Podiatrists. 5-FU, cimetidine, and diindolymethane. Many of us are familiar with cimetidine as anti-metastatic so I fo...

Re: Salami

I'd be willing to bet it was the decades of a sedentary lifestyle full of cigars, morbid obesity of close to 400 pounds, primarily denatured foods, e.g. red and processed meat, sugar, and no DNA-correcting foods (those with chlorophyll) at all, alcohol, and stress.

From what I understand about modern health science, the two basic variables are genetics v. environment.

I buy mostly organic produce and other food and have, in the past, grown my own vegies. All our meat that I buy is hormone free. We also get bison from my husband's boss who has a buffalo farm. It's not THAT hard to avoid pesticides in many parts of the country, but I know there are food deserts out...

SLIGHTLY OFF TOPIC Milkweed Sap for Skin Cancer

When I was in Boston about a half year ago (has it been that long???) for my husband's liver surgery, I apparently picked up HPV from the bathroom of our hotel room and developed a plantar wart on the bottom of my foot. I was swamped with work with no time to go to the doctor so a few weeks ago, whe...
