I know a lot of doctors don't believe that antioxidants or vitamin supplements do anything for cancer. All I know is what they did for me personally.
As some of you already know my story, but some of you are new to this site since then, I will tell more of my story. In June of 2000, I was dx with Stage IV breast cancer. It had already spread to my bones, liver, a couple of nodes in my lungs and a small mass in my chest of lymph nodes. I wouldn't ask at the time, but since have learned that my doctor didn't think I would see another Christmas. Several of my friends told me their experiences with herbs and vitamins and they were 10 years or more from their original dx. I began with the Taxol and Herceptin, taking Essiac Tea, Green Tea, Coenzyme Q10; Cat's Claw; mega dose of Vitamin C; extra Vitamin E, and A and B complex, and drinking only distilled water - as much as I could every day. In December of 2000, I was released from the Taxol and the liver mets were 90% improved and by July I was told I was in remission.
I had a lot of sickness in my family since January, and then my mother passed away in February and I got off my routine of the herbs and vitamins. I was away from home a lot and just didn't take them. In April I found another lump and was put back on Taxol, and of course I started being very diligent about my supplements. The tumor has dried up without further treatment. I am praying that when I see my oncologist tomorrow he will give me the news I want to hear - no more Taxol. Please remember me, if you can, with a little prayer that I can take some time off from the hard stuff!
I am not advising or encouraging anyone to follow my example - but my friends had the same experience I did. Their terminal cancer is on hold. I know others that took supplements and did not make it. I do not know the answer - we are all different; so, we are all going to respond somewhat differently to the same treatments. If the researchers can ever match our treatments to our own DNA needs, it will solve many problems.
You are all in my thoughts and prayers, and I hope God is smiling on you and yours today. Don't give up, just keep trying.
Love and hugs to all,
