I sent her the following recommendation. I think I should also suggest that she take DIM (diindolylmethane), the nutrient derived from cruciferous vegetables, and Vit D. Can you think of any other suggestions? She's not really into altmed although I think she's open minded.
[my previous message to her]
Resolution of cysts: Iodine therapy resolves nearly every case of breast cysts. This treatment also can heal ovarian cysts and works well on skin cysts when rubbed over the cyst. https://newswithviews.com/Howenstine/james37.htm
Most people are deficient in iodine. I add a drop each day to my drinking water. The correct iodine liquid supplement is called "Lugols". The pill form is called "Iodoral". I'll send you a bottle of Iodoral, if you like.
Americans used to get ample iodine, because it was added to bread, but now that has been discontinued.
Were you taking DHEA when you had the tumor? I know a health store lady in Franklin, Tn that blames DHEA for her breast cancer. I advise you to switch to the safer form, 7-KETO - DHEA.https://www.smart-drugs.net/ias-DHEA.htm
(scroll down to: 7-KETO - DHEA TO THE RESCUE!)
For now we see through a glass, darkly.... 1st Corinthians 13:12
Iggy, I see you made no mention of acetogenins, or Essiac, or even(!) MMS.
I don't know much about acetogenins and Essiac. I'm hopeful but not yet sold on MMS for cancer.
What was your reason for leaving those off the list?
I'm concentrating mostly on preventatives. She had the tumor removed 3 years ago.
Is she the type to do her own research?
Don't know her well enough to say. She's 51 and watches her weight like a hawk. 5'8", 120#, does 50 situps from inverted hanging position.
She's never had a baby and I think I've read that that's not good for a woman re cancer.
That makes sense, Iggy - I didn't see that the cancer is a past event - good!
We share the same feeling about MMS and cancer. D is enthusiastic about taking it, bUt I suppose it will be some time before we know what effect it has.
He took Essiac for some time, then just dropped it. He just said "I don't think it does anything" That was a subjective reaction. I don't know why he thought it wasn't "working" - nothing had changed during the time he took it. He remained free from symptoms and his PSA was stable at that time. It has gone up a bit since.
Then I learned that the immune system itself can be directly stimulated with glyconutrients like those from cell walls of lactobacilli or brewer's yeast, mannose from aloe vera, various hexoses including trehalose in mushrooms, and even rhamnose from apple rind. This stimulate the immune system to fight of anything, including cancer, but the response of the immune system also depends on adequate protein and other nutrients such as selenium (click here for thread), vitamin E, vitamin C, zinc, etc.
Then there's the simple daily intake of omega-3 plus sulfur-containing amino acids of the Budwig protocol. Though many know it as cottage cheese and flaxseed oil combo, I would think fish would be a good substitute, already having both omega 3s and protein. Yogurt is preferred to cottage cheese because Budwig herself started with a product called quark, which was more comparable to yogurt than cottage cheese.
Well, there are additional cancer killers like acetogenins (from graviola or paw paw products) and artemisinin. Plus a lot of phytonutrients from everyday foods. (I'm trying to reduce the size of a file that I'll be attaching. First time to attempt attachment. )
Hurray! I was able to attach a couple of big files.
Hi, on Budwig, I think her first choice was always fish oil. The seed oil plus quark was for those whose blood readings indicated they weren't processing enough of the fish oil, so the sulphurized protein/oil was used because it made the oil more soluble, and it was easier to absorb. We all have dairy or dairy-combination related food intolerances, so we had to switch to tofu with seed oil, with a little added MSM (not in the mix--yuk! in capsules).
