A member of my family recently was diagnosed with bone cancer in his spine. he went through 4 weeks of radiation treatmetn, which made him pretty sick and nauseous. The doc told him to expect to live another 6 months without chemo. Chemo treatments would give him probably another year but he wouuld likely be very sick most of that time. So he turned down chemo and decided to live out his last few months.

Does anyone out there have any suggestions for natural medicines?

Hi, my name is Flo, and my Husband was dx. with prostate cancer 2-1/2yrs ago, just recently was told it is in his bone,had a place on his hip and middle of the spine, the 15 rounds of radiation took care of the hip and chemo is helping with the spine, neither rad. or chemo made him sick, without them, the Dr.s gave him 18 mo.with it has given him more time. hope this helps you in some way, maybe to give you hope, chemo doesn't have to make you sick, I take it also and it made me real sick the first time, but they gave me different med. that worked real well.
GOD BLESS AND WATCH OVER YOU AND YOUR LOVED ONE----------FLO
