Lung Cancer, Hallucinations, Edema

Posted by AW (Anonymous) on 11/06/2012

Hi Ted - I've heard great things about you and need your help. My father was diagnosed with Stage IV Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (Adenocarcinoma) in Fall 2011. He was on chemo for a year. He initially responded to chemo, but stopped responding to various chemo drugs in the last few months, so the treatment was discontinued. He was hospitalized 2 weeks ago and the CT scans showed a lot of blood clots in the lungs and the liver was almost all tumor. His Bilirubin count was high. He was sent home since there was nothing more the doctors could do for him. For the last 10 days, he has had severe abdomen bloating and swollen legs. His skin and eyes are yellow. He was on a diuretic for 3 days but it didn't make a difference. Since last week, I've started him on LiverCare, LiverHealth, Neprinol, Trace Minerals, distilled mineral water with alkaline Ph drops added. He hasn't eaten for a few days. He drinks one glass of juice (fruits and leafy greens) in the morning and 2 glasses of coconut water each day. He has been hallucinating the last 2 days and is confused. Since the diuretic didn't work and his vital signs are not good, the doctors do not want to do a paracentesis to drain the fluids. Do you have any ideas as to what I can try to get the bloating down, please? You are my last resort. Please help. My dad doesn't have much time left.

Hallucinating is usually a sign of viral infection, mostly of the brain, and will respond well with lysine 1/2 teaspoon every hour for four hours, twice a day, at least. Zinc is taken once a day 25 mg preferably in the zinc acetate or zinc gluconate forms.

As to his other condition the swelling of the abdomen, hydrochloric acid concentrated in one glass of water with four drops of hydrochloric acid, taken at 10 cc every 15 minutes for 4 to 8 times will help. Selenium yeast will help a lot for his condition 200 mcg x 3 times a day.

Strict sugar/glucose controls and no fruits and carbohydrates whatsoever. Ideal blood glucose must be below 90 mg/dL to go into remission, although below 100 mg/dL is possible measured 2 hours after meals.
