Hello- Somehow I lost my reply- so I will try and remember what I said and will learn to copy and paste in case I do it again...........
Hi Gavin- Thanks very much for your reply. And,the man I spoke with was named Larry- not a Dr.- I think he may be the principle of a website called Essense of Life. He asked me questions, but never said Cesium will cure cancer- it is PH therapy. He said I would have to be on it for a year. The link you gave me mentioned that 3 or 4 months was a long time and could cause problems. A year would really scare me. I did talk to my Nurse Pract. about this- when the only problem was low postassium ( hadn't done enough research), she said if I chose to do this, they would monitor my blood levels. But just the other day we talked again because Larry told me about the inflammation Cesium can cause, and she said it might be a problem if my liver enzymes got out of whack and we couldn't get them back, it would disqualify me for clinical trials. So, I have a lot to consider. Thanks again for your concern and the links.
Hi Lainy- And, thank you for you reply. I am being treated since April 08 at Contra Costa Oncology in Walnut Creek, CA. In 2009 I also went to USC and UCLA, and they agreed with the treatment my Dr. (Michael Sherman) was giving me. Recently I have been to UCSF here in the Bay Area checking out
clinical trials. My Dr. there is Amy Moore- very nice and informative. She has given me the names of several alternative medicine Drs- I haven't gotten into any correspondence with them yet. Thanks again!
And, finally- Hi Maria- Thanks also for your reply.
I am glad to hear you are doing well. Have you had a scan lately? My last scan was in May, and it showed progression, so I am sort of scared to have another one within a couple weeks, having had nothing but my "home" treatment to keep me going. So, I am praying the positive attitude and prayers will work... :-) But, they have been monitoring my
tumor markers every two weeks- I have gone from under 34 to 41.9 in the
last 4 months. They say that is good- a lot of people have very high markers.
You make me want to become a vegetarian too- I haven't eaten red meat in over 30 years, but still eat chicken and turkey. I try and stick to a "sort of" alkaline diet, but have a sweet once in a while and bread......... I wanted to
mention a couple things for everyone having to go through chemo, or radiation for that matter. I think I am blessed with a great immune system, as I never really had any bad side effects with chemo, except fatigue and neuropathy.
I think it may be because of a couple things that I have been doing. I have fresh vegetable juice every day. We make it every morning, and I drink some in the morning and some in the evening. At least I know I am getting my veggies for the day! I have been doing that for about two years. Also, for about 2 1/2 years I have been taking a product called Flax Lignans- it is a ground powder made from the hull of the flax seed. We all know how good flax is for us, but this is supposed to be better. I think it was originally made for AIDs patients. I take one heaping scoop a day- you mix with water. It's not too bad, but I have gotten use to it. I do think I have to thank both the juice and the flax for my great blood work through all of this! I am definitely going to check out the items you are taking- And Thank you again.
To everyone, You are in my positive thoughts and prayers.
