La opción de tratamiento de cáncer de glutatión explorada

El glutati?n es un importante antioxidante en el cuerpo, y la conexi?n de c?ncer glutati?n est? bien documentada. La estructura de glutati?n es esencialmente un péptido formado por ?cido glut?mico, la ciste?na y la glicina.

De hecho, se trata de los antioxidantes m?s importantes en el cuerpo. El sistema inmunol?gico no puede funcionar correctamente sin ella, y antioxidantes como la vitamina c y e conf?an en él para funcionar correctamente en el cuerpo. Hasta podr?an quemar las mitocondrias, la principal fuente de energ?a en las células, sin la presencia de glutati?n. Lo m?s importante, sin embargo, es necesario para combatir las enfermedades y de estimular el sistema inmunol?gico.

La conexi?n de c?ncer glutati?n

Si bien no se conocen completamente las razones para ello, la conexi?n de c?ncer glutati?n ha sido bien establecida. Los pacientes con c?ncer, una enfermedad cr?nica grave o SIDA han agotado los niveles de glutati?n. Esto parece ser absoluta.

Incluso los niveles empobrecidos son un resultado del c?ncer o una de las causas del c?ncer est? a?n por determinar. Sin embargo, es evidente que glutati?n beneficia a su cuerpo de muchas maneras, principalmente en el funcionamiento de las células y el sistema inmunol?gico.

Lo que puede hacer

Para aquellos con las cuestiones de c?ncer glutati?n, hay formas de aumentar los niveles de estos para ayudar a luchar contra el c?ncer u otras enfermedades. Si su médico considera que los niveles de glutati?n son bajos puede solicitar para los complementos de glutati?n. Estas vienen en p?ldoras de glutati?n u otras formas.

Algunos de los suplementos son realmente glutati?n. Sin embargo, no existe evidencia que le permitir? absorber en el cuerpo la forma debe tomarlo oralmente. También hay suplementos que pueden tomarse por v?a intravenosa o por goteo IV. Estos son mucho m?s eficaces en la lucha contra el c?ncer de glutati?n.

Como alternativa, puede tomar suplementos de glutati?n que realmente constan de los precursores o las moléculas necesarios para hacer glutati?n. Estos suplementos son probados para ayudar a aumentar la producci?n de glutati?n y aumentar los niveles a un punto donde las células y el sistema inmunol?gico funcionan eficazmente.

Que ayuda glutati?n

Estudios sobre el c?ncer de glutati?n sugieren que se puede utilizar para tratar con éxito cualquier enfermedad, especialmente las causadas por los radicales libres. Esto es especialmente ?til para tratar enfermedades vinculadas con el envejecimiento. Los suplementos de glutati?n se han utilizado para el tratamiento de c?ncer, hipertensi?n arterial, enfermedad de Parkinson, Alzheimer y cataratas.

En algunos casos este tratamiento ha sido exitosa, donde en otros ha ayudado al paciente mejorar pero no superar su condici?n. Sin embargo, los beneficios de glutati?n est?n bien documentados.

Se hizo un estudio sobre la conexi?n de c?ncer glutati?n en los pacientes con c?ncer de ovario. Que todos los pacientes estaban recibiendo quimioterapia; Sin embargo, también dieron a algunos pacientes suplementos de glutati?n. Los pacientes que ten?an el suplemento pudieron experimentar menos efectos secundarios de la quimioterapia, y tienen mejores tasas de supervivencia.

Riesgos de tomar glutati?n

Hay pocos riesgos asociados con la ingesta de suplementos de glutati?n. Debe evitarse por aquellos que tienen alergias de prote?na de leche y un transplante de ?rganos. También hay preocupaci?n sobre el uso de tratamientos de c?ncer de glutati?n.

La preocupaci?n por estos usos de c?ncer de glutati?n es que mientras que penetra en las células para que sean m?s saludables, también puede penetrar las células cancerosas, lo que los hace m?s fuertes.

Sin embargo, no hay ninguna investigaci?n para respaldar esta teor?a. De hecho, hasta ahora no hay documentados casos donde esto ha ocurrido. Sin embargo, la teor?a es una s?lida y m?s investigaci?n debe hacerse en este ?mbito.

Prevenci?n

La mejor manera de impedir que la conexi?n de c?ncer glutati?n es para asegurarse de que sus niveles de glutati?n est?n en su punto m?ximo en todo momento. Como hacen mayores, estrés y toxinas pueden reducir sus niveles de este importante antioxidante. La ?nica forma de asegurarse de que esto no va a ser la causa o contribuir en su salud futura es asegurarse de que estos niveles no disminuir.

Puede hacer esto tomando suplementos de glutati?n a diario. El glutati?n son beneficios que se ha comprobado bien vale la pena el dinero que los costos de los suplementos. Adem?s, ya no te duele tener demasiado glutati?n, tiene nada que perder.

Al final, es f?cil ver la conexi?n glutati?n de c?ncer por s? mismo. La mejor manera de obtener m?s informaci?n sobre esta opci?n de tratamiento es ponerse en contacto con su médico o a un centro de tratamiento de c?ncer local.

Los beneficios de glutati?n est?n bien documentados en esos centros de tratamiento, y a menudo se utilizan los suplementos en sus planes de tratamiento. Pueden darle m?s informaci?n sobre la conexi?n de c?ncer de glutati?n y ayudarle a comprender sus opciones de tratamiento posible.

Article 3: LET'S LEARN THE CANCER LANGUAGE FIRST

There are over 100 different types of cancer. Each type of cancer can have different symptoms, diagnostic tests and treatment options. As a result, there are many terminologies and phrases that are used to describe the type, symptoms and diagnosis of cancer, and treatment methods. It is often very confusing as well as frustrating for the readers if too many medical jargons or terminologies are used in describing this condition. It is difficult for readers to understand the context of the topic or take any action, if required, after reading any article or book on cancers. As a result, the information is often misinterpreted or not fully understood or comprehended.

In this 3rd article of my cancer series, I would like to explain in very simple terms all phrases and terminologies used in describing a cancer. This will help readers in understanding the cancer terms, types of cancer, common diagnosis and treatment terminologies, and the health personnel involved in management of cancer. These are described in alphabetical order here.

Ablation: removal or destruction of body part or tissue. Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) therapy involves destroying cancer tissue with heat. RFA is commonly used in the treatment of lung, liver and kidney tumors.

Adenocarcinoma: cancer that begins from lining of internal organs or from skin

Adenoma: a non-cancer tumor that starts from glands

Adenopathy: swollen glands

Adjunct or adjunctive therapy: another treatment used together with primary treatment. For example, radiotherapy is sometimes given after surgery to treat cancer as adjunctive treatment.

Anal: of anus, anal cancer

Anorexia: an abnormal loss of appetite for food.

Asbestos: a group of minerals that are found in the form of tiny fibres. It is used as insulation against heat and fire in buildings. Asbestos dust when breathed into the lungs can lead to cancer of lungs and mesothelioma.

En un abrir y cerrar de ojos

Yo no sé sobre usted, pero la primera vez me escuche mi doctor expresi?n la temida palabra "C", pensé que mi vida se acab? y obviamente est? de acuerdo. Va a mostrar que no solo puede conocer lo que Dios ha planeado para nosotros, pues aqu? estoy, m?s de diez a?os m?s tarde, todav?a muy vivos. Mi diagn?stico me ha transformado y Dios contin?a utilizando esta enfermedad como una herramienta para continuar su trabajo en m?. Estoy eternamente agradecido.

Después de que se le dijo a que mi condici?n era terminal, mi primera oraci?n fue para que Jes?s me despertar de esta pesadilla terrible. Cuando llegué a la revelaci?n alarmante que no estaba so?ando, mi segunda petici?n fue tocar el dobladillo de su prenda para que yo podr?a ser sanado. Mire, conozco a Dios, y con todo mi coraz?n sé que tiene el poder de curarme - en un abrir y cerrar de ojos.

Tengo que admitir que todav?a pasan mucho tiempo pregunt?ndose por qué Dios no s?lo prisa y blink, pero parpadear ser?a demasiado f?cil. Si él hab?a blinked habr?a tantas lecciones incre?bles que nunca podr?a haber aprendido y experiencias no podr?a nunca han tenido. Por lo que estoy aprendiendo a ser paciente y aceptar cada d?a como el milagro que es. Es muy dif?cil ver la luz que est? a punto de estallar mediante cuando pasan las nubes oscuras por lo que para m? es suficiente para saber que existe. Visualizar el estallido a través de las nubes oscuras, mantener mi enfoque en que punto en el futuro, la ayuda siempre que sea, a las nubes oscuras para pasar un poco m?s f?cil y mucho m?s r?pido que la luz demasiado.

As? que cuando empiezo a sentir el peso de esta enfermedad que s?lo tengo velocidades de Proverbios 3: 5-6 "confiar en el se?or con todo su coraz?n y magra no a su propia comprensi?n, siempre que le conducir?n y borrar? el camino para a continuaci?n."

Y recuerdo lo que le? en un bolet?n de la parroquia, ".. .faith es estar absolutamente convencido de la fiabilidad de Dios, sin ning?n conocimiento de d?nde el viaje tomar? nos."

As?, al final de cada d?a que vivo con c?ncer, incluso si Dios no me curan en un abrir y cerrar de ojos, es mi esperanza que gui?o y estar bien complace!

Frutas y verduras

No hay duda que las frutas y verduras contienen nutrientes muy valiosas. Tienen carbohidratos y vitaminas que son importantes para un paciente de c?ncer. Si por ejemplo un paciente tiene neutropenia, deben comer verduras y frutas que son completamente cocinadas. Esto es porque los productos crudos pueden tener bacterias que pueden causar problemas. Una excepci?n a esta regla es que el paciente puede consumir una fruta que tiene una bastante gruesa capa de piel que obviamente debe ser lavado, pero incluye frutas como pl?tanos y naranjas.

Las prote?nas y productos l?cteos

Fuentes de prote?nas también van a ser muy beneficiosa para un paciente de c?ncer. Esto incluye alimentos como frijoles, pollo, pescado y carnes magras. Esto es debido a ayudar? a sus huesos para mantenerse sano, as? como para estimular el crecimiento. Las prote?nas puede realmente también trabajo para reparar los tejidos del cuerpo, como huesos, m?sculos y piel. M?s a?n después de determinados procedimientos como cirug?a, quimioterapia y radiaci?n, la prote?na es a?n m?s tan importante incluir en la dieta de los pacientes. En cuanto a los l?cteos, desea productos bajos de grasas. Algunos productos l?cteos grandes consumo incluyen varios quesos duros como cheddar o suizo. Baja también es buena para consumir leche entera que es pasteurizada y yogur que es bajo en grasas también. Algunos quesos blandos son aceptar consumir pero eso siempre y cuando no tiene neutropenia. No se incluye a ning?n tipo de quesos enmohecidos que no es bueno para un paciente de c?ncer. También tenga en cuenta que algunos quesos pueden ser contaminados cuando se de un deli o son importados de otros pa?ses.

Granos

M?s granos tan enteros ser? ideales para un paciente de c?ncer. Son un gran lugar para obtener carbohidratos que crean energ?a para el cuerpo. Algunos ejemplos incluyen rosquillas, pastas, arroz, panes envasados y as? sucesivamente. Cereales también son una gran elecci?n, siempre y cuando no contienen nueces o frutas. Considere la posibilidad de que elementos que pueden estar contaminados no son opciones expectable como panes de delis pero si ha realizado una ensalada de pasta de casa, se trata de aceptar consumir.

Estos son s?lo algunos grupos de alimentos que realmente ayudan a mejorar la alimentaci?n y la salud de un paciente de c?ncer. Con dicho esto vamos a mirar el siguiente post para ver qué alimentos deben evitar y por qué.

Ahora lo que: sólo diagnosticados con cáncer de hígado metastásico

Hay 2 direcciones puede ir cuando se diagnostic? c?ncer de h?gado metast?sico: vivir o morir. Compartimos historias de pacientes de c?ncer que fue una forma y otra.

Contra todo pron?stico puede intentar batir su c?ncer: tratamiento integral del c?ncer.Con el flujo aceptar va a morir en menos de 6 meses: cuidados paliativos.

Primero y ante todo es necesario creer puede curar el c?ncer, como cree usted que el sol se elevar? ma?ana.

Desafortunadamente sus médicos le consejos que no cura el c?ncer porque en su experiencia nunca conocieron cualquier sobreviviente de c?ncer metast?sico, tampoco hay ning?n tratamiento de c?ncer conocido 'v?a r?pida' para curar el c?ncer secundario.

Afortunadamente nuestro sitio re?ne un pu?ado de sobrevivientes de c?ncer de h?gado metast?sico que muestran cuando crees y hacer todo bien, puede sobrevivir c?ncer de h?gado metast?sico. Haciendo todo bien significa que necesita buscar tratamientos hol?stico que toman toda la persona, su entorno y cada medicina y experiencia en consideraci?n.

Se resumieron c?mo hacer todo lo "adecuado" en la barra lateral "derecho" de esta p?gina.

Esta etapa se llama "cuidados paliativos". Utilice la funci?n de b?squeda para leer historias de c?ncer qué esperar cuando un ser querido est? muriendo de c?ncer. 2 ejemplos ilustran lo que puede esperar:

sus seres queridos uno se derrita lejos delante de sus ojos como un mu?eco de nieve se derrite distancia al sol: cada d?a el mu?eco de nieve va a ser un poco menos que el before.your d?a querido quema nuestro como una vela: si tienes suerte, la vela se quema mucho, si es mala suerte, un proyecto s?bito se sopla el fuego.

Ahora todo el mundo os diré que hay que mejorar la "calidad de vida" de su ser querido. ?Pero en este momento sabe que sus seres queridos uno va a morir, c?mo puede usted incluso pensar "calidad de vida"? En una posici?n que, como todos nosotros que fue a través de él, se sentir? deprimido y enojado. En resumen: "calidad de vida" est? disfrutando de momentos y actividades como cuando se disfrutarlos cuando era todav?a saludable.

Lamentablemente, estos momentos ser? menos y m?s est? interfiriendo el c?ncer. Para mantener los s?ntomas de la beareable de c?ncer, debe organizar tanta gente ya que se puede encontrar para ayudarle. En una situaci?n ideal deber?a haber siempre 1 persona disponible las 24 horas s?lo para ayudar a su ser querido. Esta es la situaci?n ideal, tratar de conseguir lo m?s cerca de lo posible por llamar a sus familiares, amigos, registradores de atenci?n profesional de cualquier clase (por ejemplo, una casa m?s limpia, por lo que puede cuidar de su ser querido en lugar de limpiar su casa) y el centro de cuidados paliativos.

Introducir los registradores de atenci?n profesional lo antes posible a un ser querido, como m?s tiempo el h?gado funciona mal, m?s dif?cil es para que el paciente a aceptar o comprender el cambio.

Creo que puede vencer el c?ncer y empezar a hacer todo bien. Utilice nuestro "Buscar" para obtener inspirado en nuestras historias de sobrevivientes de c?ncer de h?gado metast?sico.Creo que el final est? cerca y empezar a organizar como ayuda adicional mucho para cuidar de usted y de su ser querido.

¿Qué compañía farmacéutica Merck no puede enseñar sobre el cáncer de hígado metastásico

Merck no tiene cura disponible para tratar el c?ncer de h?gado secundario, por lo que recomendamos para obtener el apoyo de nuestros sobrevivientes de c?ncer de h?gado metast?sico.


Google por "c?ncer de h?gado metast?sico" y los resultados de la parte superior 2 puntos a la empresa farmacéutica Merck:

Tumores del h?gado
Granulomas y masas hep?ticas

Lamentablemente, la informaci?n proporcionada por Merck repite lo que usted ha o?do de su médico:



El tratamiento depende de cu?nto se ha extendido el c?ncer y lo que es el principal c?ncer. Las opciones son las siguientes:

Medicamentos de quimioterapia: estos medicamentos pueden utilizarse para reducir el tama?o del tumor y prolongar la vida de temporalmente, pero no cura el c?ncer. Medicamentos de quimioterapia pueden ser inyectados en arteria principal del h?gado (la arteria hep?tica), proporcionando una alta concentraci?n de la droga directamente a las células de c?ncer en el h?gado.
Terapia de radiaci?n para el h?gado: a veces este tratamiento reduce el dolor, pero tiene pocos otros beneficios.
Cirug?a: Si s?lo un ?nico tumor o se encuentran algunos tumores en el h?gado, pueden ser quir?rgicamente, especialmente si se originaron en los intestinos. Sin embargo, no todos los expertos consideran que esta cirug?a vale la pena.

Si el c?ncer se ha propagado ampliamente, por lo general lo ?nico que puede hacer un médico es aliviar los s?ntomas (ver muerte y morir: s?ntomas durante una enfermedad Fatal).


As? que ?por qué Google que necesita volver a escuchar de Merck lo que ya conoces varias veces de sus médicos?


A menos que nunca supo de c?ncer metast?sico, Merck s?lo confirma lo que ha o?do de su médico y el médico donde tienes tu segunda opini?n:

no hay cura para el c?ncer de h?gado metast?sico sobre que le informamos.

Cuando el padre fue diagnosticado con c?ncer de h?gado secundaria, no tuvimos ning?n ejemplo esperanzador: simplemente no sab?a acerca de quien sobrevivi? metast?sico c?ncer de h?gado.


Por lo tanto, el padre "tirar la toalla" sin luchar: acept? que sus d?as estaban numeradas y trat? de hacer lo mejor de ella. Lo mejor es una exageraci?n: Imag?nense:

le dicen que sus d?as est?n contados
el camino que va a morir Ain't bastante menos

?Qué sucede si padre conoc?a acerca de los pocos sobrevivientes de c?ncer de h?gado metast?sico que comparten sus historias en nuestro sitio? Nunca lo sabremos.


Esperamos que usted obtiene inspirado que hay sobrevivientes por ah? y que sus historias te podr?an ayudar en el tratamiento de la enfermedad.

¿Cómo falleció Billy: lo que los médicos no informarle sobre cáncer de hígado metastásico

Pa?ales, desgarrador, sufrimiento, dolor, confusi?n, acumulaci?n de fluidos... Todos, pero "calidad" de vida. Advertencia: se trata de un c?ncer de h?gado secundaria triste y sucio cuento…


Los médicos no digan usted c?mo absolutamente repugnante de morir de c?ncer de h?gado metast?sico puede ser. Pa?ales, desgarrador, sufrimiento, dolor, confusi?n...: nuestro padre experimentado estos efectos secundarios c?ncer, as? como Billy.


Morir de c?ncer de h?gado metast?sico:

no se ve como heroica como sobrevivientes de c?ncer, ni como cualquier pel?cula intenta representar
es mucho m?s dif?cil que lo que dicen los médicos: "el medicamento para el dolor de mantener a raya"

Morir de c?ncer de h?gado metast?sico significa:

el d?a siguiente ser? menor ya que era hoy. Menos comunicaci?n, menos orientaci?n, menos divertido, menos appetite…

"Menos nada humano"


Tha s c?mo padre describi? después de que se le diagnostic? c?ncer de h?gado metast?sico.


Y pa?ales incluso no lo peor, ya que cada padre sabe c?mo cambiar pa?ales. Todos los otros final etapa s?ntomas probablemente experimentar? manos en por primera vez.


True, pero lamentablemente hay no hay tratamientos de c?ncer real cuando est? en cuidados paliativos.


Se pretenden llamados tratamientos para el c?ncer de h?gado en la etapa final:

reducir el dolor con la medicaci?n de dolor y
contrarrestar el efecto secundario de la medicaci?n de dolor: estre?imiento

Imag?nense:

su h?gado est? creciendo debido a su c?ncer est? creciendo,
hay menos espacio en su vientre y
a continuaci?n, sus heces también mantener dentro de su belly…

Esta es la dura realidad, al contrario que el término "calidad de vida" utilizado por los médicos, la calidad es sin duda una palabra enga?osa.


La parte m?s dif?cil comienza cuando el cerebro comienza a estropear el paciente de c?ncer.


Y se pone peor:

Cuando la comunicaci?n con palabras comienza a fallar.

Tan solo tenemos no hay palabras para describir esto, leer ?ltimos d?as de Billy con c?ncer de h?gado metast?sico para hacerse una idea.


Para Kistan2: Hemos visto ojos similares como Kistan2 describe de ?ltimo momento de Billy. Nos parece que Billy al igual que nuestro padre estaba comunicando:

estaba dispuesto a ir,
él nos ama all…but que él solo no administrar
para poner esto en palabras que podr?a escuchar

Esposa de Billy Kistan2 dej? sus historias de c?ncer en:



Bueno, esto es Kistan2. S?lo volv? a este sitio después de estar fuera por un tiempo. Mi marido finalmente sucumbi? a su c?ncer de h?gado, vivi? un poco m?s de 2 meses después le fue diagnosticado en primer lugar que fue un mes m?s de lo que fue su pron?stico.


Vi a este hombre valiente morir ante mis ojos en nuestro dormitorio y no hab?a nada que pude hacer para él excepto para estar con él en sus ?ltimos momentos.


El aspecto que me dio justo antes de que pas? se quedar? conmigo para el resto de mi vida.


No sé si él estaba mirando a m? y diciendo con sus ojos, por qué no ayudarlo o si lo sab?a era tiempo y estaba diciendo adi?s.


Yo sigo reproducir ese momento en mi mente una y otra. Aunque los ni?os o lo pierdo terriblemente estamos aliviados de que ya no est? sufriendo.


Ver a un ser querido sufren de c?ncer de h?gado fue horrible y él hab?a sufrido.


S?lo quiero que todos sepan lo que una persona incre?ble fue: te extra?amos tanto Billy!


S?: una de las cosas que mi marido disfrut? en vida fue su alimento.


Una vez que el c?ncer se hizo cargo de su disfrute fue seriamente mermada como él ya no pod?a tolerar las secuelas de comer.


Estaba plagado de gran gas y dolor de est?mago. Después de cada comida ser?a retirarse a la habitaci?n y esperar a que el gas & dolor que lleg?.


Como por la confusi?n – como Billy alcanzaron las ?ltimas semanas de su vida, fue tan loopy. Y se trata de un hombre que ser?a poro sobre las cosas de una manera l?gica y met?dica.


Es desgarrador ver su mente ser confuso y él quer?a repetir una y otra vez las cosas. Traté de entrar en su estado mental confuso tratando de hacerle al enfoque pero que ser?a justo mantener diciendo cosas una y otra vez.


Creo que su medicamento para el dolor contribuido a su mal estado mental demasiado.


La parte m?s dif?cil de esto todo fue que mi marido tuvo usar pa?ales debido a sus err?ticos deposiciones.


Al final, quisiera ayudarle al ba?o, espere que luch? por mover sus entra?as y, a continuaci?n, le ayudara a poner otro pa?al en.


También tuvo ascitis (l?quido en el abdomen) que le caus? el sacudidas y temblores. Con todo, no era agradable para él.


Kistan2 gracias a "decir cosas como son". Todo nuestro amor y abrazos para usted y su familia!

¿Puede curar cáncer de hígado metastásico con tratamiento de Ayurveda?

Puede curar el c?ncer con el tratamiento de c?ncer de Ayurveda seg?n libro de Tratamientos de c?ncer Natural de inconsciencia Hall en la p?gina 322:



Ayurveda especialista Dr. Nandlal Tiwari ha sido tratar a pacientes de c?ncer terminal con aclamado medida de éxito. Utiliza una mezcla de hierbas de las tribus en el bosque de Assam y lo marca Carctol ®.


Se pregunt? por Sps Sawhney en hechos de met?stasis de c?ncer de h?gado. Nuestra respuesta es simple: si hay 1 milagros para tratar el c?ncer, que todos habr?a o?do hablar por ahora.


Pero si lees a nuestros sobrevivientes de c?ncer metast?sico, sabe que los tratamientos alternativos son parte en su victoria sobre el c?ncer.


Repetimos las palabras "forman parte de", porque todos nuestros sobrevivientes tienen una cosa en com?n: un enfoque integral para el tratamiento de c?ncer (consulte la barra lateral derecha).


As? que qué Carctol ® o Ayurveda en general? Carctol ® es s?lo uno de los 350 Natural tratamientos de c?ncer que fueron utilizados por los sobrevivientes de c?ncer 2000 entrevistado.



Ayurveda (la "ciencia de la vida") es un sistema de medicina tradicional nativa de India, Chopra y practica en otras partes del mundo como una forma de medicina alternativa. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ayurvedic


Desde nuestra experiencia, no sabemos quien sobrevivi? metast?sico c?ncer de h?gado con Ayurveda.


Pero nuestra experiencia es limitada, pero crece cada d?a gracias a todos ustedes que caer y comparta sus historias! Como experiencia de médicos del padre era tan limitado no sab?a nadie sobrevivientes de c?ncer de h?gado metast?sico.


Después de dos a?os de los blogs, ahora sabemos algunas personas que sobreviven el c?ncer de h?gado secundaria:

CJ,
Dan,
Patti,
Ray y nuestros comentaristas regulares
Hijo de Jim y
Trish.

Eso es s?lo 6 supervivientes pero a?n 6 m?s que ninguno. Puede leer sus historias en nuestro sitio Web.


Karon Beattie hab?a encontrado a 1994 otros sobrevivientes de c?ncer que utilizaban tratamientos alternativos y escribieron en su libro Naturales tratamientos de c?ncer.


El famoso libro de Rhonda Byrne "El secreto" le dir? que no es ning?n secreto. Es lo que funciona y lo que no funciona.


Lo que funciona de acuerdo con el secreto es visualizar lo que desea obtener y "su visi?n se haga realidad". Cathy Goodman, un sobreviviente de c?ncer de mama en el secreto dice que ella curarse a s? misma porque:



"Verdaderamente cre?a en mi hogar, con mi fe fuerte, que ya estaba healed…


Una de las cosas que hice también para curar yo era ver movies… muy divertido La risa es realmente la mejor medicina.


Cuando crees como Cathy Goodman considera o tiene fe como sobreviviente de c?ncer de h?gado inconsciencia Hall, autor de "Mi victoria sobre c?ncer", puede estar seguro de que los milagros.


Cuando eres como yo que s?lo cree lo que ve, veo a nuestros 6 sobrevivientes de c?ncer de h?gado metast?sico mediante un tratamiento de c?ncer hol?stico basado en:

buen ?nimo,
medicina tradicional para vencer el c?ncer,
tratamientos alternativos para impulsar su salud generales y el sistema inmunol?gico.

Si usted cree que Ayurveda puede mejorar su salud general y mejorar su sistema inmunol?gico, entonces utilice lo. S?lo se inspira en lo que Jim dice:

no sabemos lo que funciona, pero es algo!

Seg?n entiendo c?ncer no hay ninguna soluci?n 1 milagrosa. Sin embargo es evidente que un estilo de vida que hace todo lo posible para mejorar su salud generales, el esp?ritu y el sistema inmunol?gico demuestra para ser crucial a la hora de sobrevivir c?ncer.

Cáncer de colon se extendió al hígado

Jim de Australia comparte extendido al h?gado y pulm?n historia de c?ncer de colon de su hijo.


Es la segunda vez que hablamos de un c?ncer de colon propagaci?n al h?gado. Lectura por un c?ncer de colon de repente aparece en el h?gado en: met?stasis de c?ncer de Colon al h?gado.


En caso de c?ncer de h?gado metast?sico del hijo Jim, los médicos hicieron una cirug?a de emergencia colon para eliminar un tumor que le fue diagnosticado err?neamente como estre?imiento.


Por supuesto se siente un c?ncer de colon, bloqueando sus heces como estre?imiento.


En algunos casos uno debe obtener alarma cuando el estre?imiento también caus? algo de sangre en las heces. ?Este fue el caso de Jim, o cu?les son los signos de advertencia que permita que a su hijo vaya al hospital en primer lugar?


Hijo de Jim ahora est? en tratamientos de c?ncer de h?gado. Aunque el c?ncer se ha extendido también a los pulmones, Jim no menciona ning?n tratamiento para el c?ncer de pulm?n ni Jim hablar acerca de los efectos secundarios de la quimioterapia.


Nos encantar?a Jim actualizar sobre qué quimio oral es que su hijo. Padre sugiri? tomar quimioterapéutico, pero los efectos secundarios de esta quimioterapia oral no coinciden con los pocos meses m?s, que tal vez podr?a a?adir a la vida padre.


?También nos preguntamos qué quimioterapia para el c?ncer de colon ha sido utilizada en el tratamiento del c?ncer de hijo Jim y cu?l es el plan general del médico en el tratamiento del c?ncer de su hijo?


Desde la ?ltima visita de Jim hijo a su onc?logo mostr? que sus h?gados niveles disminuyeron en un 50%, claramente podemos llamar a hijo de Jim nuestra supervivencia de c?ncer de h?gado metast?sico 4.


Para los que tienen c?ncer de colon o c?ncer de h?gado, no obtener falsas esperanzas cuando personas intentan venderle colon cleanse o h?gado limpiar productos: si los tratamientos contra el c?ncer cuando es tan f?cil, entonces todo el mundo tendr?a esos productos limpieza colecciones disponibles en casa, s?lo en caso de que alguien obtiene cancer…


Hijo de Jim es cuidado por su t?a, quien es una enfermera de Oncolog?a con un Msc. en enfermer?a de c?ncer. Jim es complementar su quimioterapia oral con terapias alternativas c?ncer administradas por su t?a.


Su t?a amamant? a su propio camino de regreso de mama c?ncer con estas terapias y quimioterapia y ahora est? completamente libre de c?ncer.


Esto viene a mostrar que est? siempre en la mejor en sus manos cuando se obtiene ayuda de otra persona que ha sufrido c?ncer estrecha y personal.

Por eso pedimos a todos ustedes a compartir sus historias de c?ncer.

Para Jim: Comparta m?s sobre la historia de c?ncer de su hijo. Especialmente las terapias de c?ncer alternativos como complemento de la quimioterapia normal su hijo est? experimentando, est? ausente en lo que sugerir?a médicos regulares.


Jim abandon? este comentario hace m?s de un mes a can-chemotherapy-cure-metastatic-liver-cancer.



Hace poco m?s de cinco semanas de un martes despert? el inicio de la peor parte del resto de mi vida. El d?a antes de que hab?a tomado a mi hijo de 26 a?os al médico con los resultados de un TAC que mostr? c?ncer colorrectal con grave metatastic de h?gado y algunos c?ncer de pulm?n y le dijo que el resultado ser?a pobre.


Esto fue un shock completo ya no es un bebedor, fumador o tomador de drogas. S?lo un normal sent? a guy volver a la tierra.


M?s tarde tuvo que tener una operaci?n de emergencia para aliviar la presi?n en su intestino que originalmente fue diagnosticado como estre?imiento.


Posteriormente ha sufrido dos lotes o quimioterapia intravenosa y se encuentra en la segunda ronda de quimio oral.


También es felicitar a estos medicamentos con terapias alternativas, administradas por su t?a un Oncolog?a enfermera con un Msc. en c?ncer de enfermer?a que también amamant? a su propio camino de regreso de mama c?ncer con estas terapias y quimio y ahora est? completamente libre de c?ncer.


Mi hijo est? de buen ?nimo comer bien (m?s de lo que ha hecho para las edades) y ganando peso. El no tiene ninguna responsabilidad a nadie pero que acaba de llegar bien y es el trabajo de su trabajo normal en ella.


En su ?ltima visita al onc?logo sus h?gados niveles disminuyeron en un 50% que es bueno.


Mantendré en su progreso: lo principal creo que es positivo de estancia y libre de estrés.


Nosotros deseamos bien.


Jim

Deseamos que te bien a Jim!

Permanecer positivo y mantenernos actualizados en c?ncer de colon de su hijo a la historia de supervivencia de h?gado.

Aniversario de cáncer metastásico de Jim hijo feliz año 1

Actualizaci?n por Jim en batalla de su hijo con c?ncer de h?gado metast?sico: principal c?ncer de colon: (Lee la historia de todo c?ncer en victoria del hijo de Jim sobre c?ncer de h?gado metast?sico).

Ma?ana ser? el primer aniversario del diagn?stico de mi hijo de c?ncer colorrectal con mets de h?gado, y hoy s?lo ha tenido su XV ronda de quimioterapia contra el c?ncer de colon. La suya es todav?a en Oxalyplatin y quimioterapéutico; por lo tanto, es todav?a con nosotros y de buen ?nimo a pesar de que tiene su "down" d?as aproximadamente una semana después del tratamiento de c?ncer de colon por v?a intravenosa.

Descubrimos el otro d?a que est? a?n en etapa IV, pero el c?ncer no avanza y el onc?logo dijo el lunes que es sorprendido en su estado de salud teniendo en cuenta la gravedad de la enfermedad. Sus cuadros de sangre son buenos y él es retenci?n de peso y su cuenta de c?ncer son bastante bajo; mi esposa se olvid? de pedir lo que eran, pero baja, y no tan bajo como la m?s baja han sido.

Hijo de Jim est? haciendo todo bien, ya que s?lo un tratamiento integral del c?ncer tiene la mejor oportunidad de curar el c?ncer.

Me encantar?a decirles qué es mantenerlo vivo y creo que es de todos los recursos de c?ncer alternativa facilitada por su t?a que complementa la quimioterapia. Ella les cambia peri?dicamente as? que no puedo mantener. Pero la principal es Grifola (leer m?s en nuestro post sobre la alternativa de tratamientos para el c?ncer) y también soporte de apoyo y sistema inmunol?gico h?gado cae (nada en la botella, as? que no sé).

Creo que hay que encontrar una alternativa profesional quien receta lo que necesita y que no creo que hay una soluci?n todos. S?lo somos muy afortunados de su t?a est? tan bien calificada en enfermer?a de c?ncer y terapia alternativa contra el c?ncer y entiende lo que se necesita.

Es una cosa que creo que ayuda a comer alimentos de calidad (no org?nicos) y una gran variaci?n de filete para ensalada asados y lotes de estilo asi?tico y montones de verduras; su principal amor es hot curry con picantes papadoms (tal vez es buenos para enfermos de c?ncer, quien sabe!).

No sé qué m?s decirle; pero mucho amor y cuidado. Mi hijo no tiene que probar nada mejor.

Mejores deseos a todos. Espero que el éxito es también con usted.

Jim.

Gracias Jim para su actualizaci?n y muchos, muchos, muchos m?s feliz devuelve! Acerca de curry: c?rcuma o curcuma: dando el color amarillo a curry – ocupa un lugar alto en la medicina ayurvédica como un "limpiador del cuerpo" y hoy la ciencia es encontrar curcumina ser un agente anticancer?geno. Como siempre decimos: que hay que hacer todo lo correcto curar el c?ncer, as? que hasta comer curry:-)

¿Qué tiene el Holocausto en común con el cáncer y las compañías de seguros médicas?

Read where to find financial help in the US. Read the sad contradiction that US has the best cancer treatments available unfortunately for un-payable prices.


Do you want to end up like Janet who’s insurance company refuses to give her a cancer screening, knowing that her sister is dying of stage IV advanced adenocarcinoma liver cancer from an unknown primary?


Doesn’t the above remind you of the Holocaust? A situation where some officer handpicked the ones that would go in the line to the gas chamber and those who could walk away from the line?


Now replace Janet’s medical insurance company with officer, and you know nowadays who is deciding over your life when you have cancer or want to prevent yourself from getting cancer…


This is also how we felt when my husband had to aggressively bypass the social worker from father’s family health insurance company: this social worker was clearly trying to spend as little time, energy and money as possible to what he called "helping us following the emancipation strategy".


Which is a complicated way of saying that as long as you can help yourself, your medical insurance won’t move. I mean, what has to happen worse than a person dying from secondary liver cancer before this strategy starts doing anything?


Next time you buy health insurance, do ask them in advance "which strategy" they advocate!


This is what Jim has to say about his son’s medical bills:



The fortunate thing we have here in Australia is that all the treatment for this is at no charge and all of the consultations are at no charge also. We only have to pay a minor amount for the Xeloda and the other drugs: but $55 per month is not much for what you get.


Our father was treated in Europe, Belgium and since he was a palliative patient, also all consultations were at no charge. All medications though had to be paid up front and would be partly (at least for 80%) refunded by the health insurance afterwards.


For all the diagnoses and doctors visits before he was diagnosed with metastatic liver cancer, the state controlled health insurance at least was paying back 80% of the bills.


Think again McCain when you accuse Obama for trying to learn about "the European socialist system"…


Most likely US does have the most advanced cancer treatments on offer worldwide, but what’s the point when you cannot afford to pay for these cancer treatments?


Read Janet’s complete comments at :


Janet is angry for 2 reasons:

you sooner or later get angry when you learn that your loved one has cancer without cancer treatments to cure it
she gets angry because money talks when you try to prevent having cancer

My 56 year old sister who was diagnosed with Stage IV advanced Adenocarcinoma Liver Cancer on September 11, 2008 has tried the 3 named Chemotherapy drugs Avastin, Dosataxol and Gemcitabine(Gemzar) and the cancer she has ate right through the Chemo.


My sister never showed any symptoms of cancer.


Her cancer was found on a CAT Scan when she fell and hurt her side. The scan showed also the top of her liver and that’s where her tumors were.


The nerve block was finally put in this week after 2 months of screaming bloody murder in pain even while taking multitude amounts of pain killers, pain patches, you name it, she was on it for the pain, but the pain persisted.


She had been under the care of several doctors for her high cholesterol drug therapy. Why didn’t they test her liver function while on all those drugs?????


I consulted with my own doctor on this and he explained it to me like this:


Your sister’s cancer is like that of a submarine, it lays low at the bottom undetected, it’s silent and sinister, it attacks and destroys without notice and then it’s too late.


I wish she could have been diagnosed a lot earlier because then we might have had a chance for her, but her doctors have said we don’t know where the cancer originated at. All tests of her other organs and such all came back cancer free.


I asked her doctors if this is hereditary? They said maybe, so I asked should I be tested?


They said good luck, because:

no health insurance company will pay for such a test and
I couldn’t even afford to have one on my own.

So I guess we just have to go through life with a submarine in our bodies without knowing it and wait for it to destroy because when it does, it’s already too late.


I wish I could change the health insurance of this country but I’m only one person and I’m battling with the fact that I have to say good-bye to my big sister.


For the US, read here at the cancer dot org site all you need to know about:

private health insurance
government-funded insurance plans
options if you are uninsured
financial issues
list of states with health insurance risk pools
additional resources

Janet’s doctor is practical when he describes cancer as an unseen submarine sailing in all of us waiting to strike.


Using this metaphor, the best way to prevent the cancer submarine to strike is to make sure your defense will detect it early and effectively.


The first defense you have much before cancer screenings show up is your own immune system. The stronger your immune system, the lesser chance the cancer submarine has to emerge.


Janet’s sister’s immune system was unfortunately already weak since:

she had a high cholesterol and
she was taking drugs to counter the high cholesterol

Having a weaker immune system, her cancer submarine already submerged at the age of 56. Our father’s submarine diagnosed as secondary liver cancer with unknown primary submerged at the age of 75.


Father had high cholesterol when he was in his 40?s, but managed to counter it following a strict, rigorous diet without taking any cholesterol pills.


Unfortunately, father didn’t eat much raw fruits and vegetables.


Fruits and vegetable are 2 main ingredients in keeping your immune system up! How?


Raw fruit and veggies have enzymes to digest your food. Without these enzymes, your body uses enzymes which it finds in your white blood-cells. And you all know, white blood cells are important for your immune system. So in stead of using up these white blood-cells enzymes, use the enzymes you eat consuming fresh fruit en vegetables.


You can read other ways more in detail how you can boost your immune system in the 495 pages rich ebook natural cancer treatments that work. When chemotherapy is in order, you are far closer to success when you boost your immune system as well.


Like Jim – read Jim’s son successful secondary liver cancer treatment – says:

I don’t know but something seems to be working.


Jim’s son is using both chemotherapy and alternative cancer treatments to survive the cancer.


I still find it mind blowing that in the 21st century we can detect what’s happening on Mars. But some cancers just cannot get detected. How to get an effective cancer treatment when:

you don’t know the cause of cancer and
in Janet’s and father’s case: when you don’t even know which cancer you are dealing with?

Since doctors don’t know which primary liver cancer they are trying to kill, they will try the most aggressive chemotherapy first. Father didn’t opt for an aggressive chemotherapy cancer treatment because there was just no guarantee that the chemotherapy would work.

… And do we really need to know what’s happening far away on Mars when we don’t even have something like a global medical insurance on our own planet…?


Janet says she wishes to change the health insurance of this country


but I’m only one person and I’m battling with the fact that I have to say good-bye to my big sister.


This is unfortunately the case with all care-givers: they are just one person and their energy needs to be with the person they love and care for.


So let’s come together and speak out in a loud voice:

we can, but somebody has to do it!


Some countries do have affordable health care insurance for all of their citizens, so it is possible if you have your priorities right.


The main problem with health insurance policies is that they only come in action once you are sick.


The problem with cancer is: once you are sick enough to show cancer symptoms, your cancer is already in such an advanced stage that cancer treatments have a low success rate.


Health care’s answer to this is doing cancer screenings like mammogram and colonoscopy:

both quite costly procedures to
only find a tumor in a more early stage.

Health care insurance doesn’t insure you keeping healthy!


Or in other words: health care doesn’t care about disease prevention much.


How do you take care of your children? You make sure they are well dressed, well fed, go to school the safest way, keep an eye on their friends….


You don’t close your eyes in the morning and just throw them in the middle of town, hoping they will be safe and sound? If need be when the day is over, you will be taking them to a doctor if something wrong happened?


Unfortunately, this is what the big chunk of our health care is doing: closing eyes to our culture of:

eating too much in general,
increasing amounts of sugar in food,
cigarettes
stress at the office

This kind of health care insurance should accurately be named sick care insurance.


Suppose you are the boss of a public or private medical insurance company, you would like to maximize your profits and keep your health customers happy, won’t you?


You would have lots of benefits from your health costumers no to get sick at all. Wouldn’t you be doing all you can to prevent your health costumers to get sick in the first place?


Why is what looks logical to me not applied?


The best health insurance would be an insurance that:

cares for your health and
prevents you from getting sick.

Please leave a comment when you can explain why cancer medical insurance or normal medical insurance doesn’t insure its users to live a healthy lifestyle?

Adenocarcinoma de primario desconocido

What do you do when your doctors tell you that you have an adenocarcinoma of unknown primary? Did doctors use the new Pathwork Tissue of Origin test or any other more advanced test than the one used in your hospital?


Janet replied in email to Gary’s (Small cell carcinoma of the lungs) post:

how her sister passed away with adenocarcinoma of unknown primarywhat cancer treatment the doctors did or didn’t trywhat the care-givers did.

When doctors told us father had a poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma, they might as well have tried to speak Swedish: I didn’t understand a thing what they were trying to say.


Using sophisticated words like “poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma” is a cold and sad way of telling that the doctors cannot determine where the primary cancer comes from. Sad because:

with all the billions spend on cancer research, the right equipment to determine which cancer is destroying your body is not available.traditional cancer treatments and new cancer treatments are based on knowing which cancer a person has. But as we said above: the right equipment to determine which cancer is destroying your body is not available.

Add to that again billions of cancer research without finding the right cure to cancer, without finding a secondary liver cancer treatment to be proud of. Isn’t it about time they start looking in the right place?


All we know is that like treating a virus: the only way your body can beat it, is through the immune system. So start looking for all alternative cancer treatments that first and foremost boost your immune system.


Also start learning from people who survived cancer: the ones surviving metastatic liver cancer on this site all use an holistic cancer treatment approach, in other words: they do everything right. In strong contrast with traditional medicine: when doctor’s could not find father’s primary cancer, they told us : “your father is dying…”.


Just like with Janet’s sister, father had a colonoscopy, endoscopy and numerous scans. All in a sad effort to determine which cancer was causing the trouble. Knowing very well that even when they would know the cancer, chemotherapy cancer treatment still wasn’t a sure way to get cured.


Be alert: most hospitals “use what they have available” in order to cure their patients. Most hospitals are specialized in one disease or another and are less good equipped for other matters like e.g. treating cancer. Find out if there are hospitals nearby that have more – more experienced, more advanced… – ways to help in treating your cancer better.


What I also want to stress here is: although much money is spend in cancer research: the moment you or your loved one have cancer, trying to find a solution or a way to cope with things boils down to yourself.


Just admit: in an ideal world, would you really have to turn the Internet upside down in order to find answers or to find our website?


Compare with a flu and antibiotics: you could take the antibiotics and get cured, but many people get cured without antibiotics as well. So there are 2 ways to get cured:

the power of medicinethe power of your mind and body.When taking antibiotics: lots of the flu bacteria get killed as well as numerous good bacteria in your body.When undergoing cancer chemotherapy or radiation therapy: lots of the cancer cells get killed as well as numerous good cells in your body.

So how does a person gets rid of the flu without taking medicine?


He or she stays in bed for 5 days, gets high fever and his body fights the flu until the flu symptoms are gone.


What can we learn from this? That we need to use the power of our body in order to fight cancer. Simple logic!


Do you need to follow a herbal cancer treatment then? If it helps to boost your immune system and it doesn’t interfere with any other treatment, by all means use all and do all that you can think of for the better!


Why doesn’t your doctor say: in order to treat your cancer you have to do everything right:

traditional cancer chemotherapy ANDboosting your immune system.

Doctors know that a weak, old person can’t take chemotherapy? Why don’t they practice the reverse logic and do all they can to boost your immune system?


The answer is economically inspired:

if I can differentiate so many diseases and find so many cures for each disease, then I can make so much more moneyif however I boost a person’s immune system and therefore prevent lots of diseases, then I won’t be able anymore to make money selling each and every cure.

Now I can hear you thinking: but I would love to pay a huge amount of money for the pill that boosts my immune system big time in order never to get sick.


Good for you, but boosting your immune system doesn’t have to cost you a thing (taking the money you save into account by not getting sick). And nobody can make money by selling things that you can get for free.


Once you are deadly sick however, you will spend your money on everything, even when you know the results of your money could be poor.


The good news is: everybody can boost his immune system by changing their lifestyle and doing everything right, as we described in the sidebar of this website how to become healthy.


There is no quick fix, but there is a healthy solution that doesn’t have to cost you a bomb in order to prevent cancer. Sadly enough the cancer industry looking for cancer treatments involves billions of dollars, so those people are not interested:

in preventing cancer norin boosting your overall health.

If you want to look for a cancer treatment that works, you need to start organizing a complete cancer treatment that involves doing everything right (see right sidebar). The best organizer finding the most resources will have the best chances in finding an holistic cancer treatment that works.


Then you need to start with finding a doctor that puts the person’s body first and uses chemotherapy as only one of the many factors that need to be used in order to improve the patient’s health.


Since most doctors don’t practice this simple logic, it is your task as the owner of your body to find the right people in order to do everything right.


Can it be done? Yes, just read Jim’s son cancer survival story.


Is it easy? No, because at the time you or your love done is diagnosed with cancer, your energy levels will be low already and will get lower even more. That’s why we summarize in the right sidebar of this website what we learned how our few metastatic liver cancer survivors treated themselves.


Main thing is:

get all the help you can getfrom as many people you can findin as many fields possible (medical as well as food, daily shores…)

This message is for Gary about his Mum.


My heart is crying out for your Mum right now as I so know how you feel. I lost my sister to the same disease on January 15, 2009. She was only 56.


She had absolutely no symptoms whatsoever. One day she complained her right side was hurting, they did a CT scan and saw that one of her ribs was fractured. But at the same time the top of her liver got scanned in the CT and the radiologist saw black spots on the top of her liver.


After doing further tests they diagnosed her with Stage IV Advanced Adenocarcinoma-Liver Cancer from an Unknown Primary.


That was on Sept 11, 2008 and died 4 months later.


They too did a colonoscopy and endoscope and found everything to be clear of cancer. They never did find the primary source of her Liver Cancer.


Without and autopsy they never would have known either. We decided against an autopsy.


No one in my family history has or had cancer before. She was the first.


I will pray for your Mum, please spend as much time as you can with her, every second is precious. Keep her comfortable and tell her as many times as you can that you love her.


God Bless you and your family and especially your Mum.


Janet


Thanks Janet for sharing your adenocarcinoma of unknown primary cancer story. God Bless you and your family as well!

Cáncer de hígado iv etapa

Nicole’s father is confused, his eyes are yellow and his leg is swollen: all possible symptoms you need to expect when your loved one has stage iv liver cancer. Please leave a comment with a hug or share your experience so Nicole doesn’t have to go this road on her own.

Know the fundamental differences between stage 4 cancer, cancer survival and terminal cancer:

Stage iv cancer is a cancer that has spread to other organs. On our website, the cancer has spread to the liver and is called metastatic liver cancer, metastatic meaning "moved from another place to this place". 
We have a handful of metastatic liver cancer survivors contributing to our site to show by experience that people can survive a stage iv metastatic liver cancer. The first step in surviving cancer is believing you can survive cancer, that’s why we want you to get inspired by Jim’s son’s victory over metastatic liver cancer.
Terminal cancer starts with the believe that there is no cancer treatment available to cure the cancer and that the patient will go from bad to worse until he passes away.

Only when you believe the doctors "verdict", you are a terminal cancer patient. Doctors hardly experienced any metastatic liver cancer survivor so they will tell you immediately your loved on is going to pass away.


Do know that Jim’s son is surviving stage 4 colon cancer thanks to both conventional as alternative treatment for colon cancer. Jim’s son holistic cancer treatment – doing everything right – has the highest chance to cure cancer.


Nicole has been commenting on what do you say to a man who is going to die and stage iv colon cancer. I highlight Nicole’s and our experience during a stage iv liver cancer and ask you to share yours.


I think that in most cases they hang on for us not them

I think so too: the terminal cancer patient feels how painful it is for others when he or she would be gone, so they survive on willpower to stay around for their loved ones. If you want to act on this idea, you do what Nicole said to her grandma :



I took her hand and I told her how much we all loved her, and that were all going to walk her to heaven, and its okay to let go. Directly after she passed away


Sorry I was on the phone and hit the send button before finishing my comment. I have 3 little ones…

Look at the word "sorry"… Nicole apologizes for her actions, which is nice of Nicole…


We came to a point that we stopped apologizing: the reality of taking care of a stage iv liver cancer patient is that your energy levels are going way down, and your patient is asking more care each and every day.


On top of that you try to run your daily life, work and family… No need to apologize! He or she who doesn’t understand your situation isn’t helping you and therefore doesn’t deserve your apology.


Once you stop saying sorry you get 2 possibilities:

most people think you are rude: discard those people because they don’t know what is happening
some people get a wake up call, they finally understand that something is really wrong and will finally open up to help. And any help is good help, like doing the shopping for you so you can do something else or just try to rest.

Exactly :-( It’s like seeing a snowman melting in front of your eyes and you can’t do anything about that. It equally sucks that conventional doctors don’t look beyond conventional colon cancer treatments. It sucks even more that hardly any doctor knows a stage 4 colon cancer survivor.


Exactly :-(


he’s so scared and I don’t know how to help him.

Father didn’t ever talk about fear – father hardly ever talked about his emotions -, so if yours does, please engage in asking what exactly he is afraid of. Maybe you don’t have a solution, but when the fear is occupying his daily thinking, it will be a relief he can share it.


but at the same time if I make it normal I’d only see him once a week and right now even if we barley speak

Don’t take the "act normal" rule literary: when your son gets sick, your normal reaction is to spend more time with him and take extra care of him. Same idea applies to your father: he is sick, so the normal thing to do is spend more time with him and take better care for him. E.g. if he likes chocolate, then bring him chocolate like you always did (oh yes, I can hear lots of you saying now – are you crazy: he has a liver problem -. My answer to that is: no I am not crazy: he is terminal and the taste of chocolate will bring a bigger smile on his face than a rigorous diet that spares his liver, a liver cleanse or a colon cleansing.


I’m loosing valuable time. And I just feel…

Always listen to your gut feeling and act accordingly, there are no rules, we didn’t learn anything about this in school and don’t see anything like this on TV. You know you father and yourself best and your love is what should lead you further.


I’m just not sure what’s gonna happen

Nobody is, but when you stop chemotherapy for colon cancer and all other cancer treatments to cure cancer, the prognosis is your father won’t be around in the near future. If you want to communicate anything, then now is the time to do it. I asked my father: "is there anything you want me to do for you?" and he said : "no, just do what you are doing already."
That was my guidance, you need to find yours.


Medically the metastatic liver cancer can cause the following:

if his liver is growing, then his pain will be growing and pain-medication is needed (with laxatives because pain medication gets you constipated)
feet and legs will get filled with water and swell. This has to be monitored and you need to provide bigger shoes and bigger socks. When sleeping, we made sure father’s feet where higher than his heart (put a pillow under his feet to keep it simple, but ask your doctor, nurse or caregiver for better advice)
eating less: getting thinner by the day
drinking less: getting dehydrated
jaundice (which we never experienced, although we thought father’s eyes were yellow, the doctor and nurses said they were not)
confusion: this can manifest in many ways and in father’s case went on and off:
not knowing how to do "a simple task"
forgetting where things are
not recognizing people (the long term memory will work better than the short term memory)
thinking that something is something else:
a fork becomes a spoon that leaks… (he could become angry and frustrated)
a piece of dirt becomes a scary venomous spider… (this calls for more love and attention or neuro-medication)
how am I going to explain this to my children?

I have no experience here, I remembered that my grandma was sick when I was young and that one day she died. If your children are close to their grandpa, then I would bring them along. If your father loves his grandchildren like crazy, then for sure bring them along.


He got very angry when he came to because he says we tricked him going to the hospital

Most likely it won’t be the last time you will "trick" him into something. Main thing is to be around when he finds out about "the trick" so you can explain it’s all done with love and good faith even when he is angry. Think about when you trick your kids into something or kids get angry because they are not allowed to do something ‘for the better of them’. It’s a similar judgment with again a person you love dearly.


We do advice you to surround you with people that have gone the same path. Especially try to find a GP that has experience with liver cancer and colon cancer (your GP, your father’s GP, a GP of one of your family members), so you don’t have to bring your dad to hospital too many times.


Do find hospice and palliative care people and introduce them as fast as possible. We were lucky father’s GP had lots of common sense and quite some cancer experience + "free" nurses that came twice a day (free – part of the health insurance) and a biweekly family helper to cook, to clean or to be an emotional outlet.


At the end of the day, extra professional help are drops of advice, guidance and relieve. An immense amount of energy has to be produced by whoever is/are the daily care-taker(s) of your father. Do not underestimated their effort, it acquires an humongous amount of energy.


Nicole’s last 3 comments:



My dad is in the end stage of metastatic colon cancer, and with him I just comfort him when he’s confused, and when he’s with it I treat him no different then before because he never wanted anyone to treat him different. And when I lost my Grandma to liver failure due to syrosis from high iron called hymacromatosis, and she was taken off life support, My sister, mom and aunt were allowed in with her. She hung on for quite awhile, so I took her hand and I told her how much we all loved her, and that were all going to walk her to heaven, and its okay to let go. Directly after she passed away. I think that in most cases they hang on for us not them and they need you to let them know that its okay and were gonna miss you but we’ll be okay.



Sorry I was on the phone and hit the button. I have 3 little ones so that’s why I’m waiting to go down. I’m just not sure what’s gonna happen, I mean I know its getting bad but I’m not sure what to think. Lately I find myself having a hard time to talk to him. I think I’m preparing myself but it just sucks cause I’m loosing valuable time. And I just feel so bad because he’s so scared and I don’t know how to help him. Were trying to make everything normal 4 him because he doesn’t want anyone to fuss or be different….but at the same time if I make it normal I’d only see him once a week and right now even if we barley speak I want to be there. Thanks for being able to share and listen to me. Its nice to have someone who’s able to relate to. I do have one question, how am I going to explain this to my children? Their only 3, 2, and 4 months. I mean I know my 4 month old won’t understand, but how can I tell my kids that their pap pap’s not here. My son Alex he’s 3, he’s so close to my dad and Its gonna just be so hard to explain it to him. Not to mention every time he asks me why he can’t go see him I’m crying,how can I tell him????????



Well, we finally got him to the hospital last Saturday when he was severely confused. He got very angry when he came to because he says we tricked him. The docs said nothing in his liver seemed to have changed, but were really concerned about his rapid decline. So they ran allot of tests and just said he was severely dehydrated and malnourished so they let him out w/in home care after 4 days and tonight he’s back down there. The nurse was concerned because his blood pressure was 96/52 and his one leg is allot more swollen then his other one. She said that could be a blood clot,and it took allot but we got him down there again. I’m at home and want to be with him but I’m waiting to see what’s going on.


Please share your experience or hugs with Nicole so she doesn’t have to go this path on her own!

Cómo sobrevivir cáncer hepático secundario

How come Trish, Dan, Jim’s son and Ray survived secondary liver cancer? We will present you the common factors in their metastatic liver cancer treatments and more important, the common factors in their lives.

more people can find our metastatic liver cancer site
more people can share their cancer stories and
you learn more about how to treat and care for secondary liver cancer

So what are Trish, Dan, Ray and Jim’s son doing right? Most likely they are doing everything right and that’s why you need to get all the help you can get :

normal medical cancer treatments or the latest new cancer treatment
loved ones that care
professional care takers that care
… in one word: you need an holistic cancer treatment approach meaning: you need to do everything right.they all ended up at our website: meaning they are actively involved in looking for answers for themselves and generous in helping other walking the same road
an upbeat attitude, a thankful attitude, being in good spirits (don’t get them wrong: they all felt devastated at the moment they heard the cancer diagnosis, Trish hated the doctor who gave her the cancer diagnosis for 6 months after he delivered her diagnosis…)
cancer treatments: chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy and Jim’s son even gets alternative cancer treatments
some have chemotherapy side effects, other’s don’t
they don’t know everything but they know they can dream
they exercise or at least know they should :-)
they are less than 50 years old
they love what they are doing

Secondary liver cancer survivor Trish summarizes it all when she answers survivor Dan:


I will get to your 31 months, no problem

That’s the spirit! …

People with a strong spiritual lifestyle, deeply religious people or said in simple words: people who believe in better things to come
will reach there goals more easily than skeptical people.

Unfortunately those who believe that a better life will come after this life wont focus on surviving the cancer in this life. When my father died of metastatic liver cancer, we all said he will now be in a better place without pain. What we did was making the journey to that better place as "good as possible".

The cancer survivor however has a different believe: he believes he is going to live, just like Trish says: I will get to your 31 months, no problem.

You must have heard about the placebo effect.

A placebo is an inactive pill that has not medical treatment value. However in clinical trials patients taking placebos cure more easily than patients not taking any medicine. Sometimes the placebo even cures the disease better than the drug that it looks like.

Again there is only one explanation for this: mind over matter.

Like above, people getting cured with a placebo are again people who believe in better things to come. In this case the people trust the placebo and believe they will be cured after they take the placebo.

What does holistic mean?


Holistic deals with the whole person, the whole physical body + spiritual and mental aspects.


It’s here where the fundamental problem of modern medicine cancer treatments exists.


Take father’s cancer diagnosis:

"Metastatic liver cancer with unknown primary"


I asked the oncologist what all that meant for father’s possible chemotherapy and the oncologist answered:


if the primary cancer was a prostate cancer, I would suggest prostate cancer treatmentsif the primary cancer was a lung cancer, I would suggest a treatment for lung cancer
if your father had a stage 4 colon cancer, I would love to treat him with Xeloda chemotherapy for colon cancer
but…
I don’t know what cancer your father has, so I can only do a chemotherapy so aggressive that it hopefully kills all the cancers without killing your father…
so…
I suggest to consider not giving any chemotherapy treatment

hippocratesMy mother phoned me to tell my father had cancer at the exact moment me and my hubby where visiting the island of Kos in Greece.


Amongst others, Kos is the birthplace of Hippocrates, who is regarded as the father of modern medicine.


I was utterly disgusted to hear that Hippocrates had a hospital where he didn’t allow to treat pregnant women because… they had a 50% chance of dying when delivering in those days…


Meaning that our modern medicine is based on the doctor deciding who will get his treatment and who wont get it.

Would Hippocrates allow cancer patients into modern day hospitals?


It became all clear to me then:

our so called health care
focuses only on disease symptoms treatments


In other words:

modern health care is inspired by Hippocrates: a person who didn’t feel like treating everybody
modern health care decides who will get treatment (in the US, that’s the person who can pay for it, which again is NOT ALL people)
modern healthcare is little interested in the whole person, it only looks at known diseases with treatments (father had an unknown primary cancer and didn’t get cancer treatment)
modern health care gives little importance to disease prevention,
let alone…
modern health care gives little importance to promote a lifestyle to make and keep a person as healthy as ever!

Modern health care is great when you fall and your arm is broken, they can fix it back quite well.


Modern health care falls short when it comes to preventing and treating cancer.

To survive secondary cancer
you need to do everything right!

Jim summarizes it all:



I have to admit that I think the complimentary cancer treatment is helping with the chemotherapy.

I don’t know but something seems to be working.

I would say, in order to survive secondary liver cancer you need to:

use modern medicine to your benefit: if a chemotherapy works, then undergo the treatment
believe you are going to live it through
use ALL the extra help you can getA strong body with the right mind-set or the good spirit has always the best chance in surviving any bad situation, be is stranded on a rubber boat in the middle of the ocean, be it surviving secondary liver cancer.

To keep your physical body strong you need to:

breath in fresh air
eat healthy, organic food free from any poisons
eliminate stressIt’s only now after reading Jim’s cancer story that I add "eliminate stress" to my metastatic liver cancer treatment and prevention list. Stress is a killer, is both related to our physical lifestyle and spirit AND: we are so used to stress that we forget stress is a killer.

To keep your spirit strong, you need to believe in what you want the rest of your life to look like. You need to believe ‘in living’ as firmly that you believe ‘the sun will rise tomorrow morning’.

secondary liver cancer

We are blessed to share the stories of 4 secondary liver cancer survivors and learn how they keep on living their lives. We thank Trish, Ray, Dan and Jim and wish they keep us updated to inspire others walking the same cancer road.

We would love you to add your story:

so more people can find this metastatic liver cancer site and
you get even more cancer stories to learn from.To survive cancer you need all the help you get:

all the help from people that surround you
all the help when it comes to physical cancer treatments
all you can help yourself to believe you will reach a stage you are completely healthy againWe love to inspire your quest in secondary liver survival with the extremely powerful words survivor Trish wrote:


I think in all the time I have been on chemotherapy treatment (20 months now), I have always believed that a cure will eventually be found.

And if I can stay strong and healthy enough till it’s found, I like to believe that I will be one of the first survivors of secondary metastatic liver cancer.


As long as there is no bullet proof cure for cancer, it all boils down to Darwin’s survival of the fittest. The best way to get ahead of cancer is:

making sure you don’t get cancer
making sure your body has all it can get to kill cancer cells

Cancer prevention boils down to eating and living healthy, keeping a healthy mind in a healthy body.


Easier said than done in a world were your job stresses you out, car smoke pollutes your air, food is filled with residu’s and water is polluted.


But if your life is dear to you, then you cannot use all the above as an excuse. Father had been smoking, had worked with asbestos and didn’t eat much vegetables nor fruit. Father died with metastatic liver cancer in a way I wouldn’t even wish my worst enemy.


When your life is dear to you, start doing all the things that our metastatic liver cancer survivors are doing:


1. Believe there is a cure : believe it like you believe the sun will rise tomorrow.


2. Use conventional medicine like chemotherapy, surgery and/or radiation therapy.


3. Add to that alternative cancer treatments to boost your immune system and overall health:

the healthier you are: the better you can fight of diseases and
the healthier you are: the better chemotherapy could work for you

4. Follow an holistic health approach: having a healthy spirit in a healthy body:

focus on less stress,
more relaxation,
more exercise (Jim’s son is swimming twice a week for both exercise and relaxation),
a healthy diet based on organic products
make sure you have a hobby to pass your time doing something you love

5. Make sure you have money or good health insurance to buy what you need to better achieve all of the above.


6. Surround yourself with as many loving and helpful creatures you can find: according to pancreatic cancer patient Patrick Swayze:



"you gotta have a dog"
