My wife was diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma, bile duct cancer, last fall. She was operated on but the cancer was non-resectable. The doctors and oncologists I spoke to were giving poor prognoses about her chances. The oncologists and other info I was able to find basically said that chemo and radiation wouldn't work. So my wife started on an aggressive alternative treatment protocol that included many supplements, strict diet, juicing and a couple of alt treatments from NY and the Bahamas. Up until the spring the signs were encouraging with tests showing that there was no growth. But her CT scan in april showed that there was growth and the cancer had also spread into her liver. We were obviously crushed by this, but literally on the same day we found this out, I learned of a treatment called IPT Insulin Potentiation Therapy. The more research I did on it the more I was ecouraged and excited . It is a treatment that delivers low dose chemo with insulin. Apparently the insulin puts the cancer in a "state of starvation" and makes the chemo much more effective at killing the cancer, and without side effects. Also the doctor we are using put her on a couple of supplements called Paw Paw and Artimisinin, which studies show that they are quite effective in fighting cancer on their own. There are about 50 to 60 or so MD's in the states that do this treatment and some of their additional supplements vary. We decided to do this treatment and after 7 weeks of treatment, 1 a week, it's working. Her latest CT scan showed that the main tumor (remaining after the surgery) had shrunk to 2cm's, her biliary tree was clearer and with less inflammation, and the lesions in her liver were shrinking and many had disappeared. My wife has had no side effects from this treatment and is actually very hungry afterwards. She continues to gain weight, has most of her strength and stamina back, and her quality of life is so much better. We expect that this good news will continue over the remainder of her treatment which is 18-24 weeks overall. I can't say what the future holds, but it sure is a lot more promising than a couple of months ago.
