Familial Polyposis, Fap
Dear Ted, I have two adult children who are in need of having themselves checked for a rare genetic condition called Familial Polyposis, or FAP. They are both procrastinating in getting this done because they know what the outcome will be if it is found out they have the gene. This condition is a form of colon cancer where hundreds of pre-cancerous polyps develop in the colon and rectum, requiring surgery to remove the entire colon and rectum, or where it is necessary to strip the mucous lining from the rectum so polyps won't be able to continue to develop. I have the gene and had surgery 20 years ago.
I know polyps are formed because of inflammation in the mucous lining. I have read reports where a patient had FAP, did not have surgery because of other health issues and was given something called Sulindac, which is an aspirin like drug that controls the inflammation. I believe Sulindac is called a COX2 inhibitor. The report went on to say while this patient was on the Sulindac, all polyps had completely disappeared. This is very hard on the system, as it causes ulcers and other problems like aspirin does. Then, if the patient is taken off of the Sulindac, sooner or later, the polyps will return. I have read of another drug called Aptosyn, which was very beneficial to patients who have FAP and much easier on the system. People who were given this medication became polyp-free within a matter of months. This was about to be approved by the FDA, but I found another report where it stated the FDA was not going to approve this drug at this time. Of course, what else is new?
This is where I am needing help. I'm going to try and keep this brief, as I have gathered so much information. I am so overwhelmed, I don't know where to go with this. I have heard of a doctor at M.D. Anderson Cancer Clinic in Houston, by the name of Bharat Aggarwal, who has done a study on Curcumin and cancer, that this has the ability to stop cancer, and to also prevent it. I have also heard of something called Black Salve, which is something the Native Americans in the United States have used for hundreds of years. I have been in contact with someone from the curezone.com forum who has told me about Oleander Soup. All three items are anti inflammatories. I've even heard about Hydrogen Peroxide, that this would be of help. In fact, I had Bill Munro from Earth Clinic call me today and he was telling me I need to get my children on Hydrogen Peroxide and follow his instructions with the nasal pump. Now, I am so confused, I don't know what direction to take. I know this can be prevented, I know if there are polyps, this can be reversed, but how? Can you help me with this? If it is found out that either of my children have this condition, if I can help them avoid surgery, this is all I ask. I'm feeling maybe I'm foolish for even thinking this is possible and I'm playing with their lives. But, with all what I have read where other people were able to get rid of polyps, then, am I wrong to think this can be prevented? I just know, if I had heard of Curcumin or any of these other things, I would have tried it before I had my surgery.
I hope to hear from you soon. Looking forward to seeing a reply. Thank you again, and I pray you are able to give me some advice.
