MY MOM HAS PANCREATIC CANCER. I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF SOMEONE KNOWS ABOUT A NATURAL TREATMENT. UNFORTUNALY SHE IS IN PERU SOUTH AMERICA. AND SHE HAS NOT BEEN GRANTED THE TOURIST VISA. IF SOME ONE COULD GIVE ME REFERENCES ABOUT IPIFA (INSTITUTO PERUANO DE INVESTIGACION FITOTERAPICA ANDINA) I WILL BE THANKFUL.

I have stage 4 pancreatic cancer. I am on about 23 treatments. I am doing OK at the moment but cannot tell you why as I do not know which treatment if any is working. 2 treatments you could try to get hold of are Carctol (Indian herbal capsules) and Fruitforce (natural chemotherapy from UK). Use Google to get details.
There are loads of others like Pau d'arco, Ambrotose, Essiac tea, various antioxidants, things to boost your immune system (eg Biobran, IP6 etc.)There are lots of sites on the Internet to tell you more eg.http://www.canceraction.org.gg/therapies.htm

good luck,

James, or anyone else, can you tell me if these are taken while still getting chemo. For instance, my husband is on 5FU currently. He was on a gemzar, tarceva regmine prior to that, but without any positive results. Do not know where to turn if this one fails to at least slow the growth. His has already spread to the liver so theres no surgery options. Anybody got any ideas, I'm all ears at this point. Thanks for your time and all the info. that this message board provides. Angela

Hi, Angela. Did you get any answers to your question about using natural products with chemo? I have experience with Pau de Arco, Ambrotose and Laetrile....all of which CAN be used with Chemo and would be called FOOD since they are plant source. Since my own good results I now am a 'dealer' for a few things....that work...but only do so at the lowest cost I can get also. I have talked to a microbioologist, doctors, and genetics professor in researching what is worth taking, how and why it helps. Let me know if you are interested in more. Blessings.
