I would suggest Low Dose Naltrexone.

It boosts the immune system to fight the Cancer, and has no serious side effects.

There are many other treatments out there also, but I would use LDN as the cornerstone.

With Stage 4 you don't have much time and nothing to loose if you want to try to save a life.

I would try low and frequent dosages of MMS.
I think the pancreas is highly susceptible to microbe invasion, which I think
is the cause of many many cancers.

Go to the MMS forum in alternative therapies and read the sticky on how to do mms, there you will find specific instructions for low dose mms.

If I had money I would also be packing my bags to go to Malaysia to get advanced ozone therapy.

With the exception of certain brain tumors and advanced melanoma, pancreatic cancer is the worst form, and is not something you want to play around with, especially late stage.

I would call Gary Null. He offered to help Patrick Swayze when he was diagnosed, and he also stated several times that he would never turn down help to any human being, and would never charge a penny. Its too bad Patrick chose chemotherapy instead..

I would give Gary a call for sure. He knows more about pancreatic cancer than anyone.

I would immediately find a good macrobiotics practitioner. If you have 4 months, macrobiotics will extend your life by a yr. Itbasically extends the life of cancer patients by a factor of 3. Also, IMMEDIATELY start taking fish oil, turmeric and on an empty stomach take bromelian capsules. Best of luck, pm me if you have any questions. One word of caution: It is best to find a macrobiotic practitioner not related to a whole foods stores. Many of them are pimps. There are many good ones in cleveland (look up francois roland in cleveland heights). The best ones do not pimp whole foods products.

Generally I favor alternative therapies. However, there is no question that sometimes standard therapy works, sometimes alternative therapy works, and sometimes a combination of the two modalities is the answer. In any case, there is nothing like the success of others from which to draw guidance. To read about the personal accounts of Peggy Kessler, who was diagnosed with Stage IV Pancreatic Cancer with Metastasis to the Liver in 2001 and was told she had just two months to live, but who was still alive and well as of April 28, 2008, and of Roger Stump, who was also diagnosed with Stage IV Pancreatic Cancer with Metastasis to the Liver in August, 2004 and who was told he had one year to live, but who was still alive, well, and cancer free as of May, 2008, go to http://www.cancercenter.com/pancreat...gy-kessler.cfm and take it from there with the rest of the Links on the page. The therapy that saved their lives may not work for everyone, but it obviously does for some and in that regard is certainly worth serious consideration.

My name is Roger Stump and am still pancreatic cancer free today. I mantain my health with naturopathic supplements, maitake mushroom, green tea tablets, fish oil, selenium, drink lots of water and thank God every day for this precious miracle he gave me. Yes, stage 4 adenocarcinoma is beatable, you have to believe!

A study showed that the catechins in green tea and a supplement called IP6 could be effective against pancreatic cancer cells.

http://www.naturalnews.com/024151_ca...green_tea.html

Quote:
Catechin and inositol hexaphosphate (IP6), two naturally occurring molecules found in green tea and high-fiber foods, are compounds that have been shown to prevent the growth of cancer cells when administered as single therapeutic agents against a number of cancers. In a study reported in the July, 2007 Journal of Surgical Research, researchers hypothesized that alone and in combination, catechin and IP6 would be effective against pancreatic cancer.

Angry Pancreatic Cancer

One of my dearest long time friends died Dec 5, 2008 of stage 4 pancreatic
cancer. Her doctor had misdiagnosed her earlier plus DiAnne thought her pain
was due to a fall she'd had earlier with a broken rib. They told her she had 4
months to live but she lived only 2 months. DiAnne took Chemo only, no
alternative methods. So please listen to the people here especially the survivors.
And Good Luck to whomever it is that has the pancreatic cancer.

Roger, congratulations! Good work and keep it up. Still I recommend that you look into MMS, and if not doing MMS look into Liposomal Vitamin C. We now have a thread on that topic. MMS and Vitamin C are not compatible and should not be used at the same time.

Jim Humble is now working in Africa and reports cures of cancer with MMS as well as malaria but I cannot say that mms cures all cancer. It is a tool that you might want to be aware of.

Sorry for your loss, Earlybird. I cannot tell you how many times I have seen this happen. That Patrick Swayze lasted as long as he did was remarkable and probably largely due to his remarkable power of mind and spirit. Most people do not have the where for all to last very long with this disease and if they do nothing to nourish and cleanse their body decline happens very quickly.

Default Alternative Treatments for Pancreatic Cancer

My cousin was just diagnosed with Stage IV Pancreatic Cancer and the doctors have told him he has a couple months to live and there isn't much they can do for him at this point (They are willing to give him chemo, even though the doctors themselves admit it probably won't help, except MAYBE to relieve a little of the pain).

I have been a health researcher for more than 30 years and I have been extensively researching alternative remedies for my cousin. Here's what I've found:

- Essiac Tea (look it up on internet, it's an old Indian herbal remedy that has been used successfully for all types of cancer for more than 100 years. The nurse that came upon the formula (Rene Caisse..Essiac is Caisse spelled backward) had thousands of patients who were "beyond hope" referred to her by doctors..and she was quite successful in using this tea to resolve all types of terminal cancers..most "beyond hope". John Kennedy's personal doctor, Dr. Brusch, referred Ted Kennedy's son, who had bone cancer in the leg, to Cassie and he was one of her success stories, although this was never publicized. Dr. Brusch then studied this tea for over 10 years and concluded it was indeed a "cure for cancer". He was later approached by the Federal Government and told he would be imprisoned if he continued to promote Essiac as a cancer cure. If you want to know more, there are thousands of success stories on the internet and a book out on this tea. The tea can be purchased or you can also buy capsules (I heard the tea works a little better, but doesn't taste great), or you can get the recipe for the combination of herbs online and make it yourself. If you order the tea/capsules, be sure it has Rene Caisse's picture on the bottle, there are a lot of copycat Essiacs that are not the right formula. Find the website on her story and get the recipe there to compare against the product you are looking at. There should be 4 ingredients.

- Baking soda and maple syrup remedy for cancer:
There is not a tumor on God’s green earth that cannot be licked with a little baking soda and maple syrup.” That is the astonishing claim of controversial folk healer Jim Kelmun who says that this simple home remedy can stop and reverse the deadly growth of cancers. His loyal patients swear by the man they fondly call Dr. Jim and say he is a miracle worker. “Dr. Jim cured me of lung cancer,” said farmer Ian Roadhouse. “Those other doctors told me that I was a goner and had less then six months to live. But the doc put me on his mixture and in a couple of months the cancer was gone. It did not even show up on the x-rays.”

The theory behind this remedy is that cancer cannot survive in an alkaline environment. You heat the maple syrup and baking soda in a pan and then take 3 teaspoons a day. I read that the maple syrup "attracts" the cancer cells (who thrive from sugar) but then the baking soda mixed with the syrup destroys the cancer cells. So although you may have been advised to avoid sugar because cancer 'feeds' on it, the syrup has baking soda in it, so it is suppose to kill the cancer cells, not help them multiply. Here's the recipe I found:

RECIPE

Mix 3 parts organic maple syrup with 1 part Aluminum free baking soda ( Red Mill Brand) stir with low heat (not over 120 degrees) for 5-10 minutes and take 3 tsp per day for 1 to 2 months. If it tastes terrible, you burned it, which is easy to do. Change diet to no meat and especially no sugar!! and no white flour.

There is also a book written by Dr. Simoncini, called the "Simoncini Effect", which also promotes baking soda as a cancer remedy. You can get his book or find the info you need by looking up "Simoncini Effect". The medical community immediately tried to discredit this doctor for his successes:

"The conventional cancer clique, sensing the threat to their enormous profit center, were swift to react. They attacked with virulent ferocity. Seizing on the death of a patient in his care, without regard for the actual cause of death, they unrelentingly pursued him until they managed to get him barred from the practice of medicine."

Article Source: http://EzineArticles.com/3907707


I have heard that Pancreatic Cancer can be very painful. I also read in my research that the above remedies can help with this pain in a relatively short amount of time. I also read that acupuncture has been very successful in relieving the pain and in fighting this disease.

I've not used either of these recipes for cancer remedies personally, so I have no first hand knowledge, but I've researched this extensively and the success stories speak for themselves. I suggest you do your own research. I know I would try both of these remedies if I was diagnosed with cancer. At least they won't damage tissue and your immune system like traditional medical treatments.

NOTE: I read that even if you choose to use traditional treatment, chemo/radiation, Essiac tea can still be used before, during and after chemo/radiation, and lessens the side effects and damaged caused by those treatments.

By the way I did read that chemo therapy is not helpful for most types of pancreatic cancer. Most reputable oncologists will tell you this and there are statistics to prove it. They say that cancer cells in the pancreas build up resistance to the chemo quite fast, so it is pretty much ineffective. (as it is in MOST cancers). Chemotherapy has been proven to work less than 5% of the time on MOST cancers. Here is the statistics on the effectiveness of chemo below:

Chemotherapy has an average 5-year survival success rate of just over 2 percent for almost ALL cancers!
In the U.S., chemo was most successful in treating testicular cancer and Hodgkin’s disease, where its success rate fell just below 38 percent and slightly over 40 percent respectively. Still well below the 50/50 mark.

Sorry this post is so long, hope it helps. Best of everything to all of you who are dealing with this. Don't give up hope or believe all the statistics on this disease.

Are you the guy on the TV commercials that says your cancer was cured just because you went to a certain place to where if you went any other place you would have not survived?

I would screw the maple syrup stuff. No sugar at all in any form. Also, seriously look at macrobiotics. As for cancer treatment centers of america and that lady who had 2 months to live. Notice she is one of the few. Stay away from conventional treatment.
