Lung Cancer: Chemotherapy Side Effect Counteraction

Posted by Ditas on 03/31/2007

... We've been using your alkalizing formulas, i shared it to my sisters and broher in laws, and one of my brother in laws doesn't want to miss taking ACV and baking soda for his acid reflux. The following are what my husband (with LUNG CA) is taking along side with his chemo Tx: 2tbsp of ACV and 1/4 baking soda as soon as he gets up and before he goes to bed and sometimes 1/4 baking soda with a glass of water during lunch time (if ever he's experiencing acid reflux). Mr Ted, which is better, the ACV with baking soda or lemon/lime with baking soda in my husbands case? 10-12 0z fresh carrot juice (organic) 3x a day 2tbsp of blackstrap molasses a day Vitamin C 1000mg and Vitamin E 400 twice a day Xango juice 2tbsp and acai berry 2tbsp a day Multivitamin (the one we bought from costco) a day Are these too much or too little? What else can we add to eliminate the cancer cells in his body? Restaging was done last three weeks ago, and somehow the our doctor said that my husband is responding to the Chemo Tx, there still some traces of cancer in his bones but so far theres a lot of improvements....

Thanks to you Mr Ted for all your advices, without earthclinic and for all your alkalizing formulas, my husband should be so sick right now from all the chemo drugs that he's taking. Mr Ted, two weeks ago my husband was hospitalized because of atrial fibrillation (A-FIB), his pulse rate was so irregular and went up to 150's then go down to 100's, so they started him on Toprol XL 50mg, and also his potassium (3.2) level dropped too as well his albumin level, they tap him too because of the fluid in the lungs. He has fluid in the lungs and heart since he was hospitalized last January, they want to tap it then but there's not enough fluid to tap. Mr Ted, what can we do for his potassium and albumin level? What can he eat aside from banana and egg white? Are these the right food to eat? What can we do to clear the fluid in his heart and lungs... Mr Ted is it normal reaction for my husband to have a fever a few days after the chemo? I am so worried, because my husband is scheduled for his 5th chemo Tx on April 11, he might end up in the hospital again..... what can we do to counter act the efect of chemo drugs........ Mr Ted again..... THANK YOU SO MUCH....... Always......Ditas

Dear Ditas:

One of my friends had a case of fast and irregular heart beat, at least for me, the condition had to do with electrolyte imbalances, which I managed to solve that (more like a cure for her since it never came back) just by taking 1/8 teaspoon of magnesium chloride, 1/16 teaspoon of sea salt, 1/16 teaspoon of potassium citrate, and 1/8 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass of water.

One dose did it, but it takes about an hour to normalize the condition. It was a result of hot weather bangkok, no doubt, global warming as the body loses precious electrolytes. Older people usually die of heart attack usually from dehydration and electrolyte imbalances. Fluidity of the body or the heart, may be reduced slowly with just the apple cider vinegar and baking soda, which are often reduced gradually.

Many doctor's med tend to displace potassium, and that dose may need to be taken with a bit more regularity such as once a day, or may need to take with more frequent dose. The dose I provide is always the bare minimum.

The apple cider vinegar 1/4 teaspoon and 1/4 teaspoon baking soda again taken 2 times a day is a minimum dose. Consider taking them 3 to 4 times a day as a closer optimum values, if there is no problem with initial use.

My own background in seeing people getting better from cancer, even without chemotherapy seemed to go to "remissions" (which in my book is more like a cure)were actually from the lemon and baking soda, or lime and baking soda formula. Those were taken at 8 teaspoon of lime juice freshly squeezed plus 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda, mixed in 1/2 glass of water.

As for chemotherapy, whenever there is a fever it is probably that the chemotherapy suppressed his immune system so much that he developed a fever as the body becomes more sensitive to bacteria or virus. So I think, at the very least zinc acetate (or zinc gluconate) may help the body's immune system, being both antiviral and antibacteria. I think 50 mg. of zinc acetate, for example taken 3 times a week should be helpful. Vitamin D3, 2000 i.u. to 10,000 i.u. taken once a day may help further the immune system.

Since natural therapy may have a way of resolving itself from cancer, it is at least ethical for the doctors to check for presence of cancer before undergoing chemotherapy. At least from what the nurses told me, people without natural therapy undergoing chemotherapy for the 5th time have a low probability of survival.
