>>Good Morning My Friends,
>>My Barb as you know has had 44 treatments of various chemotherapy's over
>>the past close to five years. She has had 10 transfusions of red cells
>>and platelets. She receives double doses of neuopogen (white blood
>>booster) and now a double dose of Epogen (red blood booster) as  a
>>result of so many treatments. The reason being when the more
>>chemotherapy is administered over a period of time, not only does one
>>incur side effects such as hearing loss and neuropathy from the platin
>>family, but the bone marrow which produces the cells, red, white and
>>platelets, tends to respond less and less with each treatment. So, aside
>>from this negative information, there has and is a positive side.
>>Over the past week or so, I have read and reread about 1,000 previous
>>posts from various cancer discussion forum and I find it interesting
>>that there is a pattern to these messages that inform us that there are
>>some treatments, that have been and maybe continue to be successful form
>>various arenas of wellness. I have broken them as thus and hope you will
>>respond to my thoughts as I believe we may all benefit from what I am
>>thinking about and writing here:
>>First, I have read many clinical therapies about definitive treatments
>>such as:
>>Immunocomp vaccine therapy
>>Hydrazine Sulphate
>>Now in Barbs case there has to be a beginning to a plan B where we need
>>to be ready to begin sessions of some form of therapy other than
>>chemotherapy which may no longer be an option. To do that I am going to
>>research into these forms of therapy more diligently over the next few
>>weeks and I will report back to you my findings and of course you are
>>welcome to help along in this procedure as it may benefit each or all of
>>you as well.
>>Second, the next phase of wellness is looking at an entire holistic
>>approach to wellness say as the  following clinics administer:
>>Gerson Institute
>>Livingston Foundation
>>Oasis, Dr. Contreras
>>Immuno Augmentative Therapy (IAT)
>>Health Quarters
>>Dr. Walter Crinnion
>>What these clinics focus on is a holistic and naturalpathic approach to
>>stimulating and revitalizing the immune system after chemotherapy. Now
>>we have attended the Livingston Foundation and found that to be very
>>successful for about 18 months. We believe its time to move on or at
>>least consider others that approach the revitalization of the immune
>>system more aggressively or progressively. As times and research
>>changes, so does the therapies any medical or alternative clinic
>>administers.  So, again over the next few weeks I will be consulting
>>with many of the above as well and report back to you. there are web
>>sites for all the therapies I have mentioned above whether the holistic
>>clinics or  the individual therapies.
>>Now the third approach to wellness is: There are many pills on the
>>market that suggest that it may help in cure or control of c..... cells,
>>such as SPES and MGN3  both of which have been advertised either on
>>Dateline or CNBC. And there are many others, of course we have to be
>>careful and diligently research for our own concern and needs. I have
>>received many many leads recently and in the very recent past where
>>there are many individuals who perform clinics on "healing touch" or Tai
>>Chi or have remedies or psychological treatments for healing and I am in
>>the process of calling and following every lead. NO stone will be
>>unturned, no door closed.
>>I truly believe if we look at all three approaches as well as our own
>>daily routine of spirituality, meditation and guided imagery, good
>>nutrition, exercise, support, love, purpose for living that there is a
>>cure or buying time, without the benefit of chemotherapy or conventional
>>treatment until cure comes along and I believe it will be coming over
>>the next couple of years. For your information I read and heard
>>yesterday and in fact a few times that when every "gene" is indentified
>>that there undoubtedly will be cure and that goal is set for the year
>>2002 or before, God willing.
>>Now, I am not only posting this message as a thought, but I welcome each
>>and every one of you who has been touched by this disease to provide
>>your thoughts and ideas and maybe even suggestions on other therapies
>>and clinics that I haven't mentioned and I will explore each and all
>>very carefully. Now, I also believe what may work for one, may not work
>>for another. I also believe that time is on our side and that we take
>>one step, one day at a time. But, somewhere, out there, is a cure or
>>healing for my Barb as it is for you, and we will never give up until
>>that is accomplished. I am tired, and I know Barb is, of having
>>treatments, which  by the way have helped her, but yet has caused much
>>in the way of side effects and continuing concerns. So its a bittersweet
>>message that conventional treatment helps some and yet is also brings
>>severed side effects to some. So, my friends, thank you for listening to
>>me. I hope in some way this message is beneficial and suggests that it
>>is time to place our direction to the messages that has come across our
>>computer and they are all very positive indeed. I believe there is a
>>therapy or program out there, along with our daily routine of wellness,
>>that will provide complete wellness, for my Barb, for you. Pls do
>>comment and suggest other things that might be of interest.
>>May I also add, that we must not forget, that any therapy we take for
>>ourselves probably and most possibly  be with the very determined and
>>dedicated position that our attitude and belief in healing is affirmed.
>>In otherwords, when we have listened to our inner wisdom and made the
>>diligent research and decided whatever we ingest in our bodies to help
>>heal comes with our ability and capability that with Gods grace and
>>blessings and our most positive attitude......it will heal. Just my
>>final thought.
>>God Bless You,
