2 Treatments

Treatment's going well. Mom's used to the side effects of her chemo treatment and with only 2 more treatments to go we're counting the days. It's a time to celebrate but also a time of fear for her. The good news is that her treatment worked, the worry is wondering if her cancer is on a "chemo vacation" or is it really gone? I told Mom not to worry about that. We have to enjoy every moment, worry, stress and fear won't help anyone or the cancer stay away. Taking one day at a time, keeping up the fight, no matter what you're fighting for!

Hang on Little Tomato

When things get tough or you're feeling tired of the fight remember not to give up remember "Your sunny someday will come one day soon to you!"

The sun has left and forgotten me
It's dark, I cannot see
Why does this rain pour down
I'm gonna drown
In a sea
Of deep confusion

Somebody told me, I don't know who
Whenever you are sad and blue
And you're feelin' all alone and left behind
Just take a look inside and you will find

You gotta hold on, hold on through the night
Hang on, things will be all right
Even when it's dark
And not a bit of sparkling
Sing-song sunshine from above
Spreading rays of sunny love

Just hang on, hang on to the vine
Stay on, soon you'll be divine
If you start to cry, look up to the sky
Something's coming up ahead
To turn your tears to dew instead

And so I hold on to his advice
When change is hard and not so nice
You listen to your heart the whole night through
Your sunny someday will come one day soon to you

Natural Strategies for Cancer Patients

His third and most recent book covers a topic that he has spent over three decades researching. This book is designed for patients who wish to become intimately involved in their own care and fully understand what has happened to them. In addition, it provides the reader with practical advice on dealing with many of the complications and side effects associated with conventional cancer care. The material is taken from the latest research being conducted by some of the most prestigious workers in the field of oncology.

In the early chapters, he discusses how normal cells become cancerous and the many ways nutritional intervention can interfere with cancer cell growth and spread, and most importantly, it shatters one of the myths firmly held by most oncologists-that antioxidants interfere with conventional cancer treatments.

Through carefully references studies, he clearly demonstrates that when properly designed and compounded, nutrition dramatically enhances the effectiveness of traditional treatments, and importantly, prevents them from harming surrounding normal cells and organs-a major complication of all traditional treatments. He also shows that even when used alone, these nutritional treatments can work as well as traditional treatments without the terrifying side effects. Practical, detailed steps are outlined on how to design your nutritional treatments, with explanations as to how they work. As with all his books, the material is carefully referenced with scientific articles cited in the book.

Full Results

Mom is getting treatments today and tomorrow. We saw the doctor today and was finally given the full results if the CT scan. The scan was done from the neck all the way to the pelvis this time. All appeared normal in the neck and chest. The lining of the stomach is slowly thinning and shows improvement. YES! The biopsies that were taken from the lining of the stomach showed no signs of cancer!
