Stage 4 Stomach Cancer

A family member has just been diagnosed with stage 4 stomach cancer.  Though the doctors are very compassionate and kind they are not very optimistic.  They are saying 6 months to 2 years.  We are determined to beat this.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Imported Herbs I've Used To Fight Cancer

Herbs I Have Used To Fight Cancer

1 pound of herbs equals  =  454 g

Herbs are decocted (cooked) in 9 cups of water at a slow roll, down to three cups.

Put three cups water in a pot of sufficient size. Use a utensil to measure the three-cup level and mark it as such. Add another 6 cups water for a total of 9 cups.

It takes between 1-1/2 to 2 hours to cook down to three cups; use the utensil
you have already marked, to indicate that the three cup level has been reached.
