A Success Story from a Girl with Stage IV Lung Cancer

I had a relative die from this disease.   She spent 15 months fighting it through a lot of nausea, dizziness, etc. etc. etc.   Besides the chemo, they had her on 12 different drugs and a local drug store version of B12.   She was announced cancer free on New Years and by March, I thought she had really beat it and was ready to say – I guess this works.  Okay, she was now in a wheelchair, but she was alive and sounded really good.   Then her body crashed – how many chemicals can the body metabolize – and died shortly after.

Then I found out a friend had the same disease.  Sigh.  But instead of chemo she took off to Hungry for a group called “Hope Floats”   I could go on about what a great treatment this is, but thought I’d just let my friend talk for herself and for them.

Here is her story – Success Using an Alternative Treatment

Foot Neuropathy

Very often people complain first about their feet when they have neuropathy, nerve damage.   The nerve to the feet is long and runs down the entire leg which looks like an awful lot of area that can be damaged.

There are many causes of this.

Additionally, there is a TV show done on the Unknown Cause of Cancer.   It can be found here under One Man’s Take on Cancer.

It does talk about misdiagnosis of cancer and the other reason that you can get DNA mutations.  It is very worth watching.

Chemo Brain (Chemo Fog) Research

The medical doctors, who use drugs to address disease, usually just cover up the symptoms of that disease and make the patient feel better.   With cancer, they use the drug to attack these cells and tumors which attack a health body. The theory behind chemotherapy is that the drugs attack fast growing cells.  The cancer cell is a fast growing cell as is hair and red blood cells which is why hair loss and anemia are big side effects of this procedure.

For as long as chemotherapy has been around, there has been theories as to why it creates something called chemo-brain or chemo fog; that loss of mental faculties that slows the person down in their thinking and ability to multi-task.

There are lots of theories about what creates chemo brain.

We found a study that was done which has a very good validity as to why this phenomena happens.   You can read about it here  Chemo Fog Research

With Nerve Damage, you need more than an antioxidant.

In the last year or so, the number of articles written about neuropathy has grown and with this number the different “natural” remedies have grown.  I even find new “remedies” that come and go on a regular basis which claim they have the ingredients to help neuropathy.

Most remedies that I found claim antioxidants are the thing that will help, but others have their own combinations.

The real bottom line is will it build healthy nerves?  What does the body need to build healthy nerves?

Chemo Brain & What Can Be Done

by Chris Daino

There has been a big debate over chemo brain for almost as long as chemotherapy has been around.   After receiving chemotherapy, a person complains about their ability to remember, learn and they talk about the constant fog they feel they are in.

When a person complains about sharp pains in their toes, the doctor knows it neuropathy and gives them a pamphlet “Living with Neuropathy”.  But what about when their thinking is getting foggy?

There are many reasons put forth and all you have to do is search for the term “chemo brain” on the Internet and you will find lots of theories and back and forth.  Suggestions about “brain games” are even made to help you get your wits back.

Here is the information that we’ve found regarding Chemo Fog
