I know at least three of our fibro family are battling cancer. I just found two articles of new studies on the use of vitamin C in killing cancer cells.

Anyway - figured maybe it would be useful to those of you in this fight.

-----------------
(Excerpt from article)
"The research of these scientists has been published in the highly-esteemed Cancer Research journal, and it indicates that if Vitamin C is introduced to a tumour, it may reduce in size, become less resistant to chemotherapy and bring about a possible cure. It will also slow the rate of growth of the tumour, and the cancer cells will be more likely to respond to chemo treatment.

The research also involves a study that indicates that Vitamin C kills the protein that helps carcinogenic cells to grow. Dr. Visser, a part of the team, confirms that the Vitamin C treatment would apply to most solid cancers, including haematological tumours like leukaemia.

After this research, it is upto to doctors to find various ways to introduce the vitamin to tumours and cancer cells. Also, what is important to know is that Vitamin C is one that is benefits not only cancer patients but also people who just want to keep healthy."

(excerpt)
Abstract

"Ascorbate (ascorbic acid, vitamin C) is one of the early, unorthodox treatments for cancer. The evidence upon which people base the use of ascorbate in cancer treatment falls into two categories: clinical data on dose concentration relationships, and laboratory data describing potential cell toxicity with high concentrations of ascorbate in vitro. Clinical data show that when ascorbate is given orally, fasting plasma concentrations are tightly controlled by decreased absorption, increased urine excretion, and reduced ascorbate bioavailability. In contrast, when ascorbate is administered intravenously, concentrations in the millimolar level are achieved. Thus, it is clear that intravenous administration of ascorbate can yield very high plasma levels, while oral treatment does not."

I have a question princess. forgive me brain fog but does it mean that it works better through the IV or just by taking it orally. Thanks for the info though. Im willing to try just about anything within reason especially after I asked the Doctor today what stage I was at and he said stage 4. So tomorrow I will find out from the oncologist if there is any hope in radiation and chemotherapy.
Dr. today is my pulmonologist and he said that the small collapse in the lung is healing, but when I asked if I could do housework again he told me no housework for the next 4 to 5 days. :-( lol
Anyone out there do free maid service? lol

Shirley, it sounds to me like the IV treatment is more effective as you would be getting a higher level of ascorbic acid in the plasma, rather than orally, as you would lose a lot of it in your urine. 
 
It sounds promising!

Hi Shirley,

That's what I understood from reading that, too - what Donna said sounds right. (That the iv version works, but not necessarily the oral / mouth dose.). Maybe you could print those pages and give them to your doctor? I always figure it is worth asking!

Well, Shirley, you just put your feet up and relax. That's your job. Just let that collapse part finish healing. House work is over rated. :) Do you have any one near by who could help with things for a while? Like meals, and some stuff that would let you rest more?

Maybe there will be more ideas yet for your treatment. I know that little boy whose story I follow (he has the worst kind of brain cancer -- and it is gone but he's still treating with some sort of immunizations to prevent it coming back) received some relatively new treatment protocols in addition to his chemo etc. His main doctor called around to all sorts of hospitals around the country to see what might be the best fit for him. There are lots of things you and I might not know about - but can be found.

I've only seen the tv commercials, but did you ever see those Cancer Treatment Center of America ads? Do they know of anything different?

*hugs*

((( Shirley ))) I'm a fellow pauper. ;-)

I don't have any first hand experience with Cancer Treatment Centers of America anyway.

But - I remember that little boy's doctor found out treatments that hospitals around the country use. I think she then got permission, or authorization, to use their protocols so he could stay in his home state to do them. (I'm not a med person - I might be saying this wrong) So maybe your doc will be like that too - looking at all the angles and borrowing ideas from other places. Some of these oncologists are really cool that way. After that, the family did have to travel to another state for the immunization program - but I think they got help with that financially somehow.

You've got all of us behind you. If anyone hears about ways to get financial assistance for cancer treatment you can bet we'll post for you.

Love ya too.

If anyone is interested....Please check into Essiac Canada. It's Rene Cassie's home web site in Canada. It's an old
Ojibwa Indian recipe of Turkey Rhubarb, Sheep Sorrell, Burdock Root and Slippery Elm. The web site is awesome as
Essiac Tea (her blend) is patented. Rene was treating between 300-600 people with cancer a week!!!

I know it also cures and reverses the damage from acid reflux. My Man's sister-in-law told him about it and it worked
for both of them.

Nana - have there been any medical studies that can document the success of this treatment? I'm leery of testing someone's health, when they're in a critical phase especially, if there hasn't been documented studies to discover more about any treatment plan.
