Hi all,

Stumbled on this video from youtube the other night-

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xIpOmRhDKc0&feature=related

About a stage four man who took a supplement called Cellquest.
Apparenently it worked wonders for the gentelmen who took it (cancer free) and the report seems credible as it was a local news broadcast.

Anyone ever hear if it? Thoughts???

Mo had symptoms in April of 2011 when bread started getting stuck when swallowed. He was diagnosed May 28th and staging was completed by July 7th. He began chemo July 27th (a full 2 months after diagnosis and 3 months following symptoms). He is was staged at 3c-4, T3N2M1 with adenocarcinoma. Staging seemed to me to take forever and I spent that time researching alternative medicine.

Weeding through all the BS and scams and fairy tales is tough. My personal research gave me hope with 2 things: strawberries and Cellquest. Neither is promoted to kill cancer, but only to stop or inhibit its growth.

In the beginning of June, Mo started the Cellquest (not as high a dosage as recommended - 8oz a day) and eating strawberries every day.

His tumor was 6cm (the size of my thumb) on May 28th. When he had his ultrasound on July 6th it had not grown. He began his chemo on July 27th and we increased the Cellquest to 16oz a day. Except for 1 to 2 weeks when he had severe mouth sores and couldn't tolerate it, he has continued and still takes it daily. He has 2 1/2 more weeks of chemo, then a CAT scan to see how it did.

It has been 5 months now since he had symptoms. Many people in that time, at that stage, can no longer eat and rely on the J-Tube. Mo has no tube, eats fine (anything he wants) as long as it is smaller quantities. He even ate Philadelphia soft pretzels this week. He has lost about 25 pounds in 5 months. Most of the weight loss was due to the mouth sores which made him unable to eat for almost 2 weeks. So far he does not appear to have cancer symptoms, only side effects from the chemo treatments.

Everyone at Geisinger says he's doing great, and he is. His color is good and he has strength. He even did a vulture program for Hawk Mountain Sanctuary this month, holding up an 8 pound vulture and talking to the audience for an entire hour. (We do wildlife education) That is amazing for a man on chemo.

I can not tell you that Mo's progress is due to the cellquest. Mo's father was an EC survivor in the late 1970s when it was a true death sentence. And when I say a survivor, he lived 20+ years and died in his 80s from unrelated issues. Because of his family history, the biology of the cancer may not be as invasive. Mo may be genetically predisposed to having a weaker cancer or a unique immune system to fight it. And we do not yet know what the CAT scan will tell us in 2 weeks.

I can tell you it has not hurt him and it gives him a feeling of control over this thing. Sometimes it's faith that pulls you through and if you believe in something it can work wonders.

I think I found this on youtube the same day my hubby was diagnosed. If it were me I would be trying it.
Peggy, please let us know what the ct shows and if your oc thinks cellquest is helping.
We are advised not to use holistic meds as they dont know if it can counteract the chemo.

Thanks and prayers for a good scan.

We began the Cellquest and strawberries on our own before any treatment started. We did take it with us to our "treatment-plan" meeting with our oncologist before chemo began and show him. We didn't want to do something that would interfere with treatment. He gave to OK to continue, not endorsing it by any means, but didn't believe it would hurt. This is a truly "western medicine" hospital. They do not get involved in ANY alternative ideas, but they don't roll their eyes either.

Hi Peggy,

That's my mom's name. My father, 63 was diagnosed with stage 4 Esophageal cancer with mets to the liver. Is your husband still using Cellquest. I ordered about 3 weeks for my father and am just wondering if I should continue....there's so much not proven. I guess I just need some hope.

Thank you for your response in advance.
God Bless your family.

Hello Kelly :)

"Welcome" to the Internet's most compassionate and well informed EC forum. You can and will find answers here, as well as friendship and honest to goodness caring people.

You might consider starting a thread of your own telling us a bit more about your dad like - where is he receiving care? Has pallative treatment been recommended? If so, what? Has he had a 2nd opinion?

I haven't seen Peggy post in some time. Perhaps others on the forum have Cellquest information and can answer your question.

{hugs} to you and your Dad!

I have not posted in a long time but I have a email feed set up and saw this. We have such an active life and we just are keeping, keeping-on. Visiting here would get me horribly depressed and Morrie wouldn't visit at all.

Morrie (Mo) was diagnosed a year ago. Yes he is still on the cellquest and is still eating. Following chemo (last was in December) the pet scan revealed that the cancer was no longer in the lymph nodes but he still has the tumor. We are told it is inoperable (too close to his aortic arch) and the doctors say they have nothing else to offer. Last August they gave him 3 months. We wouldn't give in then and won't give in now. We are continuing with alternative treatments. Morrie is still active and working (as a volunteer) at our wildlife center and if you met him today he appears the picture of health.

He is still eating, although he has had more difficulty swallowing the past week or so. This past week he mentioned that he wasn't sure anymore if we can beat this. I know he hurts but he forges through it. He is the most incredible man I have ever known.

I will start a new thread soon and introduce you to him more fully. We are still fighting.

My husband Richard, has EC we found out after Chemo and Surgery Stage 4B. Apparently they thought it was 2B when we started The PET and Echo didn't really show the extent - the surgery did. It was such a blow like someone had run over me. I went home and cried for 2 days. Then I did some research and found CellQuest We found this out just last week so we haven't gotten a chance to try it. ( our chances to live 6mos is 1% I believe the word palliative was used Oh I hate that word!)

What does it taste like and does anyone add anything to it to "help" it?
Did you cut down the sugar that you consumed?
What quantity of Strawberry's do you eat?

I want him to be the "one" who makes it!

I am so grateful to have found this site I can't find any support either at the VA (where Richard is being treated) or locally where we live. Everything is at least 20 miles away.

Any help will be appreciated!

Hey Lee,

I read the letter from the FDA, do not see anywhere that they spell out the product is harmful to humans, or even that it does not do what the producer intends it to do. This is more a question of how they are marketing themselves and following the laws around distributing drugs. Being in my line of work I have not directly interacted with the FDA, but I have customers that do and it is not completely uncommon to be sent this type of formal action letter. I would be interested in seeing the companies response. This is really around how they are marketing the product and not the product itself.

I am not endorsing the product myself as I have no knowledge of it. I can only say that the letter from the FDA would not provide the company 15 days to respond if they thought it was a true health concern. The FDA has the capability to shut down manufacturing plants, they could have done that. I think they are more concerned around making this product sound like a drug, when it is in fact a holistic supplement.

I've already come across the FDA link, I agree that it is about the way it was being marketed and also about $$$.
I wish we were seeing more trials with products like cellquest.

Is cellquest available only online? I live in Canada and was hoping it would be sold here. Or in the USA. For those who have used it How are you getting it?

Hi there;

I wasn't inferring that the cellquest was questionable because of the FDA letter, it's just the only thing I found that wasn't an endorsement.

I've spent a year of people sending me info on everything from alkaline diets to hemp oil to.. well, everything in between, and you know what they have in common? They don't seem to really do anything. Usually there's one lab report that says "x has been proven to fight cancer cells".. well it's kind of like those Skechers workout shoes that have been "proven to burn calories".. well yeah, but just getting out of bed burns calories too.. is the shoe remarkably better than other calorie-burning activities? No. Products like Cellquest put me on guard. They come out of nowhere, seem to have little proof of their effectiveness except the "one guy" that just happened to be cured by it, and there's never any real proof that the product was responsible for the "cure". If you had a product capable of doing this, wouldn't you be pushing for wide-scale clinical trials, calling CNN etc. to prove it's use? Nope, instead I'll sell it from this one little website in Florida.. if it's too good to be true...

For stage IV EC patents traditional treatment doesn't fair much better that some holistic treatments. When you are told you have an 10% chance of making it with Chemo, radiation and surgery how can a person that wants to do everything they can to live not try other options also?

I am not saying that Cellquest is good or bad, I just keep an open mind because I will do what ever I think can help me beat this beast.

There was one study done at the Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute at the University of South Florida in 2003. The abstract is listed here at a reputable site and sited by many of the other articles: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/14612961. The more complete write up was published in the International Journal of Molecular Medicine and is available here: http://www.samento.com.ec/sciencelib/noni/naturalmusaceas.pdf.

It was this study that made us decide to go with it.

Niki is correct that the FDA warning was about how it was promoted. To claim it as a cancer treatment it had to meet the studies guidelines of a drug. The companies reaction was to not mention anything except it is a natural supplement to boost the immune system.

We called the company itself. Unfortunately, the claims are all anecdotal. And it is VERY expensive to take as directed (about $500 a month). After 2 cases the company gives a huge, unpublished discount.

Another promising study was the one completed this Spring about strawberries. An article about it is here: http://www.webmd.com/cancer/news/20110406/strawberries-may-help-prevent-esophageal-cancer

It may seem odd to follow regimens that inhibit its starting, but Mo has more barrett,s esophagus cells that could turn into cancer, too. If strawberries inhibit it changing, that's a plus (and he likes them).

This is his web site & many other cancer survivors healed of many other cancers. My hubby Al is in the fight right now with a diagnosis of esophageal cancer stage 4 since April 19th. He is in his 3rd round of chemo, every 2 weeks. We got a late start after finally staging. His MD didn't pick up on the real problem a yr. ago. Al is doing 28oz. a day Cellquest. His doctor said it wouldn't hurt & believes there are natural things out there to prevent & heal. Al also has a Jtube since May 13th. He is a very strong willed person with faith that our Lord is healing & directing him. It has not been easy though. Sometimes nausea sooo bad. He is holding his weight though. We pray to get a really good report on Petscan in August after round 4 of chemo. Thanks for sharing.

Hi everybody,

My father was diagnosed with EC stage III this past January, even after chemo, Radiation, and even surgery, the cancer came back. our family is desperate to save him and I cant take it anymore to see him in so much pain. I read an article about Ozone therapy, Gerson diet, and Cellquest. However, Cellquest really caught my attention. Can anybody give me some hope here about Cellquest?? I am so tired of conventional medicine. this is literally our LAST CHANCE.

Send me a PM. I'd like to discuss some stuff about alternative and integrative medicine.

You can read my comments from earlier. Mo was diagnosed stage 3c in May of 2011 but had swallowing issues since April of 2011. He is still active today, and until this past month could still eat anything. He has been doing so fantastic for so long but this summer began having swallowing issues again.

Since the beginning we were told that Mo was never a candidate for either radiation or surgery because he had mets in distant lymph nodes. He had 9 weeks of chemo treatments last year and that is all. That ended in January of this year, 2012.

Our oncologist last week said he "is not a typical EC patient." He has been on cellquest throughout plus we've done juicing and I asked if this could have helped. The doc said there were too many variables to tell.

This past summer he has now progressed to stage 4 with mets to a rib plus the tumor has begun growing more rapidly. He will have a stent placed tomorrow.

I have not been writing here but saw this topic come up again and had to reply.

Mo has done so well compared to many who could not have the surgery. I would like to think it is because of the alternatives we've done but who knows? Keep in mind many of the success stories we read about do not just involve taking cellquest. Many of these people also changed their entire lifestyles, eating vegetarian and only organic. Major healthy life changes. Mo wouldn't do that. His attitude was "if I'm going to die anyway I might as well enjoy the things I enjoy." He still eats anything including fast food and (embarrassingly) refused to quite smoking. Yet, 18 months later he is still working, active and cheerful.

Luckily, our oncologist has been very supportive of our choices of alternatives. We have 2 new ones we have started and are not giving up.

Can he get an esophageal stretch instead? I read a lot about stents... not very much of it was good.

He did have 2 stretches plus an Argon Gas burn in September. He still had issues swallowing. Everyone agreed that in his case the stent was a good choice. He wants to eat and his surgeon was very positive about his choice of stents. It is a "temporary" one in that this type can be easily removed if need be.

He is doing very well. He came out of anesthesia about 5pm and is home. He's been taking wildlife calls tonight (go figure) but he does have some discomfort. The hardest part is getting him to take his pain meds.

Cellquest is a wonderful product and I have been tracking it for over 15 years.  However, I would recommend coupling it with a therapeutic package from Dr. Sebi.  He is out of California. Call them and they will mail a package right to you.  He helped 3 of my family members with different ailments and I know that it is safe to couple his products with Cellquest.  PM me if needed. Most natural cures are hoaxes, but i Know Cellquest is good and Dr. Sebi is the real deal.  Hope this helps.

I would appreciate more information on this please.  We live in KY, could Dr. Sebi help us? My brother has cancer and I don't think I have cancer but if left untreated, it could head that way...

I have an email address I can give you if you are still available to see this reply.

Thanks so much!
