Hi Tom, I just wanted to shoot back a few things that might be helpful.  Have your Mom take a good quality chelated calcium supplement.  It is critical to the health of the thymus gland.  Also, please check out a supplement called "Paw Paw".  It is manufactured by a company named Nature's Sunshine and is extracted from the bark of the Paw Paw tree.  You can research Dr. Jerry McLaughlin who has been studying it for many years at Purdue.  It selectively kills cancer cells via ATP reduction.  Normal cells can tolerate this shift but cancer cells cannot.  Also, as you probably know diet is a huge factor.  No processed foods, nothing white and absolutely no sugar.  You mentioned your Mom is eating semi-solid foods.  You can try smoothies based with cottage cheese (6TBSP)/flax oil (3TBSP) mixture and then add fruit, nut butters, even coconut milk to boost the nutritional value.  Curcumin is great too as long as you get the right kind, which it sounds like you are doing already.  One other thing is glutathione which is a very powerful antioxidant which helps with detoxification and immune system function.  The best way to get this is via patch. 

These are just a few of many things that can be done to really assist your Mom with fighting this off.  If you would like me to send more information I can certainly do that, just need your email.  I have been studying/researching alternative cancer treatments for just about 4 years now.  My husband was diagnosed at 38 with Stage 3 esophageal cancer and he is 2 years clean as of this coming July. 

Best of luck to you and your family.  I know if you dig in the right places and talk to the right people you can do this.  Also check out www.alternativecancer.us which is really the best comprehensive alternative treatment website out there.

Thanks for the info.  Can't do calcium supplement or cottage cheese as Mom has hypercalcemia. I think due to consumption of too much calcium over the years. Could also be due to the cancer itself.  Since the surgery a month ago she has had postoperative delirium, but I understand this is also a symptom of hypercalcemia.

I have her on a diet consisting of high-percentage ovolacto vegetarian with occasional fish. Keeping calcium moderate using whey as additional protein source. Included in that is raw, fresh pressed vegetable and fruit juices 2-3 times day with lots of greens (i.e. natural phytocalcium and k) Supplementing with various immune boosters. Diet is very good, I make sure of that Wink

Met with new primary care doctor today. She is highly educated from prestegious universities and supporter of alternative care. BigGrin She told us of a case of a women who had stage 4 cancer that metastized to the bone and brain. She went on a type of immunotherapy clinical trial where they harvested the cancer cells and cultured them with her own immune cells in such a way where the immune system attacked only the cancer cells. She is cured of the cancer. Pretty remarkable. The other participants in the trial have survived longer but not cured. There is always hope.

Will look into that supplement you suggested. would welcome any additional info. You can send private messages to me through this forum if you'd like.

Thanks for the concern.

The June 2012 LEF magazine page 28 had a reference to Aloe Vera juice taken with chemo "44% increase in response to therapy and 25% better disease control over chemotherapy alone."

I found this article. Most of the information has been around for some time however.

I've always been a believer that one is not necessarily a victim of their heredity, and that genes are influenced by environment, physical activity, food, and thoughts, and probably other things yet to be discovered. I've believed this long before the phrase 'epigenetics' was coined.

This is in line with the reason why cancer is so hard to destroy. You take one-hundred people, for example, who have the same cancer diagnosis, and within that group the cancer cells respond differently in each person.  This is one reason why making a 'magic bullet' cancer drug is daunting.

I believe immunotherapy, the type that creates an affinity to each individuals immune cells to 'their' specific cancer cells—where the immune system attacks the cancer and not healthy cells, holds the most promise.

I imagine in the future scientists will develop a type of nano-technogoy, where small, robotic-type microcells are programmed exogenously to seek out and destroy a patients individual cancer cells, and then implanted into the patient intravenously, and when mission is accomplished, released from the patient. In this way homeostasis could be maintained, in contrast to a stimulated immune system type therapy.

Curcumin is promising but it is poorly absorbed, as with so many other supplements. With many diseases, natural compounds show promise in tightly controlled, scientific environments. Take them out of that environment and it's hard to duplicate the same results. Scientists usually acquire a very pure, consistent, highly standardized form, or a specialized isolated form (that you or I can usually not get).   Although many vitamin manufactures are genuine in their manufacturing attempts, this level of quality is not often seen batch, after batch from commercially available products.

-Tom.

@ sarahm168 : Okay, so... apparently Paw Paw (annona muricata) is neurotoxic, specifically to nerve cells that make up the cortex of the brain.. (LINK) . My mom has a mild case of postoperative cognitive dysfunction, so that product is definitely out of the question. She also suffers from fatigue, hopefully will get better with more rest, but would not want to exacerbate it with an ATP reducing agent.

Right now she is taking: (information for all's perusal)

1 serving / 3 X Day: Oregon Wild Harvest Turmeric: Each serving: 825mg extract (standardized 95% curcumin) + 525 whole herb tumeric + bioperine. Taken with a spoon of olive oil for enhanced absorption.  = aprox. 2.3 grams + of curcumin daily. | Curcumin & Lung Cancer

2 servings / 3 X Day: Brazilain Green Propolis (i.e. Artepillin C): Each serving: 400mg | Tumor Supresson  | Lung Cancer |  = aprox. 2.4 grams daily

2 servings / 3 X Day: BIO30™ New Zealand Propolis (i.e. C.A.P.E.): Each serving 600mg | Lung Cancer | = aprox. 3.6 grams daily

Strongly considering:

Medicinal mushroom stack of some sort. Product yet to be determined (i.e. PSK, AHCC) | Lung CancerMushrooms Cancer Treatment

 I liked the Jarrow Mushroom Optimizer , but why the added Folic Acid?  I do not know.. So that product is out of the question for cancer patients anyway.

-Tom.

IV Vit. C isn't a cure, and clinical data on high IV doses is limited. I have not ruled it out just yet. 

Some information for your perusal:

Linus Pauling Institute: More news about Intravenous Vitamin C & Cancer

Vitamin C and cancer: what can we conclude--1,609 patients and 33 years later?

PDF doc of letters to the editor in rebuttal to above article.

So... anyway... the debate continues ...

I do have to agree with one point of Cabanillas, that 'cancer' is an extremely heterogeneous. I have not seen any papers regarding IV ascorbic acid and 'lung carcinoma'. 

-Tom.

....

I had the chance to hold informal discussion with one of the key scientists of a large pharma company and asked bluntly what holds most promise for winning the war on cancer; his reply was positively: immunotherapy.

On a different path, have you considered MCP (Modified Citrus Pectin)? Was reading HERE about inhibition of lung metastasis, at least in rats.

Just one advise I feel to give: your mom might be advised to undergo chemio. Prior or after that, I would recommend to discuss any supplementation and/or dietary advise with the best oncologist you could find for her particular status. I believe medicine is one, neither conventional or alternative.
