Cancer alternatvives:

Oxygen therapy (hyperbaric)
Gerson therapy (nutritious diet)
Vitamin therapy (intravenous C)
Detox (enema)

What type of cancer? Ang mahirap is discipline and change of lifestyle e, else it will always come back.

@heyitschel 600 ang consultation fee.

@agape: asp sarcoma. sana may gerson practitioner dito sa 'pinas. gerson therapy kasi ang first choice ko dati.

yup mahirap talaga ang change of lifestyle kaya kailangan ng matinding discipline pero kung decided naman gumaling ang isang tao, kakayanin talaga  ;D

ako nga naeenjoy ko na ngayon ang raw foods, 2-3 liters of raw juice and smoothies a day. i do coffee enema twice or once a day.

^wow, I guess you have to do all that until stabilized na ang health mo, then maintenance of health na Lang. Recently Lang ako ulit nagging aggressive sa cancer research ko. Dami ko Kasi kakilala affected by cancer.

One of my officemate had lung cancer, diagnosed stage 3-4 agad, I think it's because she got sick and got confined so biglang baba ng immune system niya. Then back to hospital ayun, me lung cancer na. I thought having annual physical exam is enough to keep health monitored. She had 2 years chemo, and lost it na. She was only 32-34 yrs old.

Me kilala rin among mag-Ina. The mother is 59 yrs old, had mastectomy, 6 months chemo therapy and radiation. It's been 2 years, she looks okay na. She is a teacher, no vices, but I think Kasi yung diet nila is not fresh food, I mean kahit yung meat naka-ref ng 1-3 weeks before they cook and eat it. So I think yun ang cause ng cancer.
Her daughter also got breast cancer, 32, had mastectomy and still undergoing chemo for 1 year pa.

Another batchmate died of fat cancer naman, and I thought he was healthy Kasi malusog say tingnan compared to Nung high school kaming sobrang payat siya.

Ang hirap Lang sa cancer parang it has no symptoms? I mean you feel okay, you look healthy until you have the tests and realize you have cancer pala.

My lolo had cancer of the larynx, 2 years Lang of treatment, his body did not take it. He was 59. My Lola had uterine cancer when she was 80 years old, she only had radiation, she lived until 87. I really don't believe in chemotherapy, since it kills Talaga.

Ang hirap mag hanap ng doctor, and most doctors are uneducated in alternatvive medicine.

How did you hear about Gerson?
Ako kasi nagdownload lang ng video torrents, so I can educate my family.
I let them watch repeatedly, parang brainwash na rin. hehe.
Sabi ko sa kanila, if anyone of them gets cancer, I will not pay for their surgery, radiation nor chemotherapy eh. I will have them go thru alternative medicine.

Dami kasi nila sakit like my Aunt who is hypothyroid (ayaw ng doctor painumin ng Iodine) arthritis (waste of money daw ang Glucosamine Chondontin) diabetes (walang discipline sa cravings, tapos ibibigay aspartame) hypertension (eat pa rin meat and fats). Tapos sabi mana-mana pa so I'm watching my own health and lifestyle closely na rin.

Sometimes I get confused na rin, don't know what/who to believe.
Maybe you can try a nutritionist or dietician instead?

I know of an established oncologist that uses meds and alternatives to treat cancer. He was a former president of the Philippine Oncologist Society. He gives free consultations every Saturday at an office in Ortigas. If anybody wants to schedule a consultation pm me and I'll help you schedule a consultation

^how did it go for your mom?
my aunt has friends who has cancer, pero ayaw ng alternative, pero nahihirapan na sa chemotherapy eh. meron kasi silang mga healthcard and covered yata ang cancer therapy nila.

^not good sis. 

to give you a background, my mom was diagnosed with adenocarcinoma (a type of lung cancer) in Sept 2010.  No symptoms except for a lump under her jaw which turned out to be a metastasis.  So she was rated as Stage 4.  Doctors are pushing for treatment.  Best time to get treatment daw kasi no symptoms to deal with.  Pero mom chose alternative treatment.  Takot kasi sa chemo.  We went to this doctor (Dr Navarro) who claims to be able to tell if you have cancer through urinalysis.  Juicing, vegetables, supplements were recommended.  She's drinking tons of carrots+green apple juice.  no meat.  alam ko meron pa flax seed and flax oil.  all organic. 

Starting mid 2011, noticed mom losing weight, not eating as much, having pains sa lower back.  Gradual yung symptoms and easy to ignore.  By end of Oct, she's in pain na, cannot eat, and very weak.  when tested, cancer has spread all over na - bones, brain, abdomen.  Docs are again pushing for treatment.  Pero mom again chose alternative med.  This time, we went to Dr. Merced.  It's all so confusing to me kasi I cannot understand the concept of "healing crisis".  Sabi Dr. my mom will get worse before she gets better kasi papatayin yung mother tumor.  She's being given high dose vitamins, then something that will poison and kill the cancer cells.  More juicing, and enema are recommended.  Tapos meron pa raw egg whites to boost her albumin.   we also bought this machine from Dr Merced that's suppose to deliver low dose electric current to kill cancer cells, bacteria, virus, funghi).   through all this, mom is in pain, very weak, hardly eating, vommitting.  sabi brother ko healing crisis.  she's complain about pain in her legs, Dr. Merced suggested na i-massage namin but it's not helping.  until the time that she's already in so much pain and asked to be brought to the hospital.  ayun, nagblood clot na pala.  worse, nag pulmonary embolism na (some of the clots went to her lungs) which is a fatal condition.....

After that, thankfully she finally listened and went for treatment.  It's a big turnaround.   by summer 2012, she's feeling well enough to go out again.  she can walk, be independent again.  Mom didn't get well.  Upfront naman dun ang mga doctors.  But at least na extend yung life nya by 18 months, 15 of which were really "feeling better"time

 both my parents chose alternative over conventional treatment   (my dad naman went to this doctor in Tarlac who is promoting Boston-C.  A huge disaster din).   I'm not a fan of alt treatment and would not recommend it. 

And another thing, alt treatment is not cheap ha.  Except for Dr. Navarro, kasi naman urinalysis lang gawa nya + supplement, grabe ang mahal ng alt treatment (compared to Medical City or St Luke's)

^so which is better na, conventional chemotherapy/radiation/surgery or alternative methods?
or is it dependent on what kind of cancer (body part/organ) and what stage it is in?

for me, if it's something serious like cancer, I'll go for conventional treatment.  This is something my siblings and I learned the hard way......

There are so many things to look out for, and in a hospital environment, you have access to a whole team of specialists.  Hindi lang naman oncologist ang kailangan pag may cancer kasi you a battling so many symptoms. 

Pag alt med kasi, kahit doctor yung nag-administer ng treatment, you cannot expect him to have expertise in all body parts/organs.  Also the support staff, I feel that the nurses in hospitals are a lot more competent since they have more experience, better training.  I remember nung sa dad ko, nung nagstart na sya na magtutulog (as in he is missing meals kasi tulog lang sya ng tulog), the doctor and nurses in the clinic where he's having alt treatment, sabi healing sleep yun.  Yung pala, he's having kidney failure na and the toxins are going up to his brain.

Also, pag alt treatment, if there are complications, they do not have the capability to address the problem.  When I asked Dr. Merced what to do in case magkaroon ng adverse side effect yung treatment, her advise is we have to bring mom to hospital.
