I applaud you and the info you have posted. I also have great sympathy for what you have been through.

Without going into too much detail and offending you or someone else, I just want to point out to other readers that there are many different types of cancer. All requiring different treatments with varying degrees of success, and all having a different effect on your life (or lack therof). This post, if written by somone suffering from terminal lung cancer or a grade 3 brain tumor, would read much different.

I know what you went through was not easy. I am not attempting to belittle you in any way. I just want to make sure that others realize it isn't all rainbows and sunshine regardless of how hard you fight.

on May 9th 2013.. I was given the news that I had Left breast cancer that had spread to my L lung, spine & thyroid.. ER+ stage IV..my oncologist could not believe I was still working ( I am a registered nurse) and that I was only taking advil for the pain (twice a day)..My oncologist tells me he is using me as a case study for the md students he is training. I tell everyone I am LIVING WITH CANCER NOT DYING WITH CANCER...I am gaining weight and according to everyone who knows me I look better now than before I was diagnoised. If my days are numbered so what!! WE ALL are living on borrowed time.. and I will not spend mine worring, afraid and anxious. See I feel like I am in a win--win situation.. If I go into remission then its a win.. If I die I am going to heaven so see it's a WIN.. I am not afraid to die.. we must all die and that is a fact.. No life is not a rainbow but, there is hope, faith, and love.. If you don't believe in GOD then don't read my post any further... 4 years ago my husband had a stroke..and was unable to work. like everyone we owed 2 paychecks.. and I had to work 2 full time jobs for 3 years..thats how long it took him to get his social security..YEAH for our great system..LOL...I vowed I would never owe anyone any money again...I paid off the house, saved money, paid off the cars and got us debt free and also started a food stock & some cash to fall back on. God laid on my heart to stock, stock, prepare. prepare.. NOW I see why.. I am unable to work due to my cancer and am trying to get my social security disability (lets see which one comes first my disability check or my death !!) See I did not know why GOD laid on my heart & mind to prepare for hard times but, now I am secure in that we have at least 2 years food supply and 8 months of my salary put up !!! So don't just look at something bad may happen with the economy..It can be a situation at home..so to everyone keep preparing!!!! STOCK, STOCK AND MORE STOCK..

I've been reading about the metabolic theory of cancer. Most cancer research goes toward the genetic theory. The metabolic theory, while less flashy and money making, seems to hold some promise. The theory began with the work of researcher Otto Warburg. He won a noble prize for his discovery that most cancers rely upon sugars to fuel growth. Today professor Thomas Seyfried, along with a few others, has continued this line of work. I thought this a nice interview of professor Seyfried concerning the treatment of cancer and the role intermittent fasting and a Ketogenic diet, along with medications, can bring.

Found this to be an interesting article about taking simple baking soda, in conjunction with chemo treatment, and improved diet to treat cancer. The University of Arizona is looking further into this idea.

Thank you for sharing your experience with us. I am also a survivor of breast cancer. I had a yr of chemo along with Herceptin (an antibody). When the chemo was done I continued the Herceptin 1X every 3 weeks for 3 months. Everyone reacts to the effects of Chemo differently. I only had 3 episodes of day long nausea throughout my treatment but could not believe how cancer and treatment played havoc on my whole body. I lost my hair (no big thing). I got neuropathy in my feet and hands. Left foot all numb, right one toes only. Finger tips in both hands tingel. My heart, bowels and thyroid affected.About 3/4 way through Chemo I was to start radiation and lo and behold I fell and broke my hip. This put me in a 30 day residential facility for 30 days and interrupted my tx till I got home. Had a talk with my oncologist after hip surgery and he told me that if he thought this would hinder my recovery he would definitely let me know. I continued with my TX and completed radiation. My last tx was 2/3/15 and I have had 2 PET scans come back negative. I still have numbness and they said it may or may not go away. My hair is growing back. I wore a wig just on special occasions when going out. My heart. bowels etc have all gone back to normal. The only meds I am on is a blood pressure and thyroid pill daily. I feel that my recovery was the result of an excellent Oncologist and the many prayers from friends and family. My Oncologist could not believe the recovery I made as I had a very complicated case which I will not detail at this time. G

You are a true Survivor - they may call us preppers, survivalists or what ever label the rest of society wants use, it doe's not matter because we all share one similar mind set and that is to survive what ever comes out way.

Congratulations and all of you who have fought the good fight (Win or Loose) you are a true inspiration to us. My mother, brother and niece are all also survivors also in the great fight for life against one of the most vicious evils that plagues our society today - Cancer.

Thank you for your true words of wisdom that you shared.

It is just my humble opinion: we, as a group, are the people that refuse to give up and let others steer the car for us. We all know that fate may impact what happens to us, yet we will not let fate determine our out come.

I posted earlier a few articles on the potential benefit of fighting cancers with a ketogenic diet along with intermittent fasting.

Along similar lines, there is a substance that is inexpensive, around .70 cents a day that is apparently easy to use, has few side effects and is thought to work in a similar manner as the ketogenic diet. It is called 3 Bromopyruvate (3-BP). It is a substance that has been known for awhile to be effective in curing animals of many types of cancers. Not that many humans have tried it, but of the few that have, good results have been seen. I saw recently that a hospital in AZ has begun offering 3-BP as a treatment. I'm hoping it works out for the patients that opt to try it.

More about 3-BP can be read at:

"Dr. Peter Pedersen Explaining the Promise of 3-BP"

http://www.singlecausesinglecure.org...omise-of-3-bp/

& more information on it, with references to a New York Times article, and a Baltimore Sun newspaper write up.

http://www.resveratrolnews.com/cancer-cured-again/1077/

& the hospital now offering 3-BP can be read about here.

I thought this a nice read about a Professor that overcame breast cancer with diet. The main topic of the book revolves around how the Professor began avoiding all milk products and after doing so her cancer went away. She then begins presenting theories on why that might have happened.

I'm currently reading a book about how some studies have found tight clothing can cause cancer. The theory on why that is has to do with tight clothing hurting circulation, which then might limit the bodies ability to remove toxins from that area of the body, which results in the development of cancer.

The book is also about what happened to the author when she stopped wearing a bra, after being diagnosed with breast cancer.

Dressed to Kill―Second Edition: The Link Between Breast Cancer and Bras

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/07...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

n 1995 the first edition of Dressed to Kill: The Link Between Breast Cancer and Bras revealed the disturbing results of a study that showed a notable correlation between the wearing of bras and the incidence of breast cancer. The women studied who wore bras 24 hours a day were 125 times more likely to have breast cancer compared to bra-free women.....

I've found this mention interesting in the past. It had me thinking it might be helpful when fighting cancer. It's just a theory, one that I likely would try myself if I should develop cancer.

Cancer is likely caused by toxin exposure. That is the leading theory for the cause of cancer, toxin exposure. Sometimes toxins come from the environment. We frequently hear about poisons found in tobacco causing cancer.

Equally though our body has methods for removing toxins from the body. One way that carcinogens are removed is through the lymphatic system.

Another toxin removal system or theory involves energy in the body. The body uses electrical energy for healing. A Dr. Baker is best known for his research work in this area. Dr. Baker wrote about his work in books about how he helped invent machinery used in healing bone. If a broken bone will not heal on its own due to electrical signally in the body being damaged then a PEMF devise will be used to send tiny correct electrical pulses between the bones to signal healing.

It's been written that energy might also be used for removing toxins from cells. If so, it could potentially be a way to fight cancer.

I was pleased to see that in America there looks be a change in how prostate cancer is addressed and treated. Basically not every man diagnosed with prostate cancer needs to have their prostate removed, and the side effects that goes with that operation.

This article is about the link between heart disease and lead exposure.

https://drmalcolmkendrick.org/2019/0...65-lead-again/

excerpt:

Quote:
...Where was I? Oh yes, lead. The heavy metal. The thing that, unlike diet, makes no headlines whatsoever, the thing that everyone ignores. Here is one top-line fact from that study on lead, that I missed:

‘Our findings suggest that, of 23 million deaths every year in the USA, about 400 000 are attributable to lead exposure, an estimate that is about ten times larger than the current one.’ 1

Yes, according to this study, one in six deaths is due to lead exposure. I shall repeat that. One in six. Eighteen per cent to be exact, which is nearer a fifth really.

Of course, this study is observational, with all the usual caveats associated with such studies. Indeed, many people commenting on this blog have stated that correlation [found in such studies] does not mean causation. I think you will find that this does not include me – although I may have said it by mistake. It is true that correlation does not mean causation, up to a point. However, once that point has been reached, causation can be considered proven.

For example, in observational studies, smokers were found to have fifteen times the risk of lung cancer. That is a powerful enough correlation to prove causation – beyond any reasonable doubt. There is no point in setting up a controlled clinical trial to prove this. In fact, any such trial would be completely unethical.

The question is, at what level of increased risk/correlation can causality be accepted. There is no absolute clear-cut answer to this Life ain’t black and white. However, most epidemiologists will tell you that unless the odds ratio (OR) is above two, you cannot attempt to claim causality. Too much noise, too many possible confounders.

Which means (deep breath, waiting for statisticians to attack this mercilessly) you need to find that a ‘factor’ is associated with at least a doubling of risk, before you do not simply crumple up the published paper and throw it in the bin.

Most dietary studies get absolutely nowhere near two. We have risks such as one point one (1.10), or one point three. One point three (1.3) is a thirty per-cent increase in risk. Here for instance is a review of red meat and colo-rectal cancer

‘As a summary, it seems that red and processed meats significantly but moderately increase CRC risk by 20-30% according to these meta-analyses.’ 2

Figures like this, from an observational study, mean only one thing. Crumple, throw, bin. Remember also, they are only looking at one form of disease colo-rectal cancer (CRC). The impact on overall mortality (the risk of dying of anything) would be minuscule, if it could even be found to exist at all. Of course, overall mortality is not mentioned in that CRC paper. Negative findings never are.

So, on one side, we have papers (that make headlines around the world) shouting about the risk of red meat and cancer. Yet the association is observational, tiny, and would almost certainly disappear in a randomised controlled trial, and thus mean nothing.

On the other we have a substance that could be responsible for one sixth of all deaths, the vast majority of those CVD deaths. The odds ratio, highest vs lowest lead exposure, by the way, depending on age and other factors, was a maximum of 5.30 [unadjusted].

Another study in the US found the following....

Reading further on the topic of lead poisoning in books, have learned lead and other heavy metal exposures has a possible link to the development of various cancer. Removing heavy metal toxins from the body is not an easy task. it is possible though with various hospital medical treatments and natural supplements.
