Recent (4 days ago ) removal pituitary macroadenoma:
Dearest Ted, I am a 56 yr old English lady. After spending 5yrs of being turned away 30 times by 5 different doctors, losing my general health, getting too stiff and exhausted to even climb stairs, gaining 4 stones in weight,having the worst menopause known to womankind for hot flushes, sleeplessness, feeling poisoned, and eventually nearly losing my sight, I went to an opthalmic optician who told me I had a pituitary tumour. I wasn't even as upset as I should have been, just so resignedly grateful that someone had at last given me a reason for my desperate exhaustion !
I was operated on 4 days ago, two months after my diagnosis,was told it was a large tumour and probably benign. I will have that confirmation in a week and am now recovering at home. The great points are that my eyesight has improved immediately 30 % and I am not stiff any more.
Strangely though I am having the odd hot flush still, and am very dizzy.
The bad points are, I am now scared as I was told they got most not all of the tumour, and am at present having to take steroids 3 times a day 10 mg / 5mg / 5mg. I have read the possible side effects, and am praying you will help me with advice to cope with all of this.
I have been warned about CSF leakage, and have been reading up about this,and the recurrence of the tumour, and am still reeling from all the procedures related to my surgery, ( I am needle phobic on top of all this ) I can't face going back in for more head surgery if I get this leak. How can I stop it ?
What can I do to stop this tumour coming back, ( as they sometimes do )and to help my poor exhausted body cope with the steroids, and the overweight.
I keep trying remedies, but then I read a bit more and I am doing the wrong thing, and I am worn out trying to help myself. Please can you help me ?
Bless you for all the incalculable help you are giving to suffering humanity.
My best wishes to you

Dearest Ted, I forgot also to say that I have raised liver enzymes, Bradycardia with an ectopic beat that I have had for years, and that the endocrine team mentioned radiotherapy. Can I avoid this or can I help deal with it? I am also having quite bad headaches and am taking paracetamol with my steroids. Michelle from Cambridge.

Dear Ted, I thought it was time for an update, on the advice you so kindly gave me. I have just had my 2 month post op check up, and some results. The first month I took 500mg Taurine and B50 daily.Vit c up to 6 grms daily, vit D . Now I take Taurine 4 times a week and B50 weekly. Is this ok ? In the evening I take 99mg potassium and 500 magnesium, but my heartbeat is still disturbingly irregular. At first I had insomnia until 5 AM, but now sleeping much better, and I did take 5HTP for a couple of weeks,
My Adrenals still are not functioning, so still on Hydrocortisone 10mg, 5mg, 5mg. So I also take 500 mg calcium twice a day, as hydrocortisone pushes calcium out of the bones. I have developed in the second month an awful backache that stops me walking even a short distance before It seizes up. I wondered if this was anything to do with the calcium issue ? The doctors don't know what is causing it, and it is really hampering my recovery and fitness. It's quite high up pain, at chest level.
I am using your alkalising formula everyday, and due to this wonderful site, have found other foods to balance alkalinity. I eat a lot of beets, avocado, and almonds with every meal as they are like magic to stop acid reflux ! Ted is it possible to overdo the alkalising ?
I am due another MRI scan in the next few weeks, to see if the tumour is recurring. I will let you know the results. I have taken the bloodroot for one month, then had a break as I was not well, but have restarted 3drops x 4 times daily.
Thank you all involved with this site, for giving us a chance and knowledge to help ourselves.
Dear Michelle: I have seen some results from tumor being reduced by 1/2 after a couple of days, even some inaccessible places such as the brain, for example through the use of a very low dose bloodroot tincture. The dose that was used at the time was three drops of blood root tincture dissolved in 1/2 glass of water taken 4 times a day.
I should have posted this a long time ago, but had to resolve other issues concerning its use. Hence vitamin b complex is taken at least weekly. However, if there is an immediate energy increase, and a person feels they need to take it almost everyday, then the body is apparently in need of it, which I did find one case that required it as a result of the CFS.
As to the CFS, the best remedy I have found that is the simplest concerns the use of methylene blue 0.1% concentration, where some people purchased this from an aquarium supply shop. However, their concentration is often 1%, and hence if I need to prepare a 0.1% concentration. I might add 10 cc of 1% methylene blue plus 90 cc of distilled water to create a roughly 0.1% methylene blue. The methylene blue is then taken between 2-3 drops taken in the morning, noon and late afternoon to help with most of the CFS. In anytime it's not taken you will notice and immediate drop in energy levels, so it is taken at least three times.
The other issue is to discourage tumor in the brain, alkalizing the brain is vital as acid brain creates a condition of tumor problems. The remedy however, requires 1/8 teaspoon of sodium carbonate (washing soda) plus 1/8 teaspoon of baking soda plus 1/8 teaspoon of potassium bicarbonate or potassium citrate. Most of the killing in an alkalization remedy will come from the potassium and alkalizing elements. The sodium in the sodium bicarbonate is used to stabilize the needed sodium: potassium ratio within normal range.
To prevent metastatic brain tumor I have found BHT (Butylated hydroxytoluene) taken at 1000 mg will stop them from being metastatic. Interestingly there is one case of a brain tumor resulting from metastatic tumor where an olive oil plus 2-5% clove oil is applied to the head, which pushes the tumor to other less critical areas. This always happen even in chemotherapy, but doctors rarely mention them. However this case was an interesting one since the person continued to smoke, so while the tumor wouldn't disappear due to constant smoking even to now, the tumor was no longer there, but has some lingering ones and kept in check with the supplements anyway. It would have been much easier, even or me if the person quit, at least the tumor would have gone completely away if that was done. In any event, magnesium supplements 250-500 mg of magnesium citrate also helps as well as taurine 1000 mg and once a day fish oil.
Michelle: I wondered if this was anything to do with the calcium issue ?
Calcium has a lot to do with backaches and glandular damages. A glandular functions as in adrenal glands can only restore if blood calcium is kept low and was not taken. The remedy for my backaches is not to take any calcium, but take magnesium chloride 500 mg instead and usually goes away completely in three days. There is often noticealbe reduction in backpain, to the point it's tolerable instead of intolerable after taking even 250 mg of magnesium chloride in water 1/2 glass within 30 minutes.
Whether overdoing alkalization or not depends on urinary pH and salivary pH. A urinary pH is ideally measured with a pH meter and it should be 7.0 while a 7.3- 7.4 for salivary pH. The baking soda from sodium bicarbonate is considered low if the pH is below 6.5 and ideally needs to take more until 7.0. Unfortunately pusing to 7.0 with baking soda is difficult and it can usually reach 6.8. But the addition of sodium citrate, (technical name trisodium citrate), if used instead at 1/2 teaspoon taken twice a day dissolved in a glass of water can easily push the urinary pH to 7 - 7.3. A theoretical optimum is reached. My theoretical optimum is based in urinary equlibrium between a urinary pH and blood pH so less pressure is placed on the kidney, but a critical balance of potassium is needed still. The salivary pH is hard to push and maybe responsible for most intracellular acidosis, which is the acidity INSIDE the cells and one major controlling pH of that is the potassium, either potassium bicarbonate or potassium citrate. I like citrates because they reduce calcium out of the system and tends to clogs the glandular systems, and cancer by promoting blood clots and blocking circulation. In fact people with cancer with sudden blood clots (before they die) have excessive levels of calcium to begin with and blood clots blocking the circulation and sometimes killing the person and hence I often like disodium EDTA (with some baking soda to neutralize acidity) or even tetraSodium EDTA at very low doses such as 2-5 mg. It's much lower than those commercially used where they use 250 - 500 mg. So my dose are generally very low. It is low enough just to get the job done.
Whenever the brain and glandular tissues becomes cancer causing, baking soda and bicarbonates cannot reach the brain because all the bicarbonates are neutralized along the way. As a result I now opted for a carbicarb with potassium. The dose is as follows:
1/4 teaspoon of sodium carbonate plus 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda plus 1/2 teaspoon of potassium citrate (technical name is tripotassium citrate) in 1/2 glass of water. That's taken twice a day to get access to less accessible areas of the body and alkalize them. Potassium citrate if it can't be found I used potassium bicarbonate. If not enough was taken or not the right kind, then if we are talking about saliva pH, then it's got to be the potassium.
Hormone supplements generally cause a glandular shutdown if taken in excess, and I prefer to take it below the optimum, just to get it barely working, So frequency of dose and very low dose are generally my approach followed by gradula withdrawal. The carbicarb and potassium will generally work as anti inflammatory and hence may reduce dependency of anti inflammatory hormones along that line of thinking. At least that's how I reduce inflammation, generally speaking, using the carbicarb plus potassium.

Some supporters of sauna therapy state that "hyperthermia is a well-researched therapy for cancer. " They state that the high temperatures can "select" for abnormal cells and that tumors are unable to handle the high heat. --creighton.edu
I am a married 34 year old female from India, at present living in Seattle, Washington USA. I was diagnosed of a 3 cm pituitary macroadenoma in 2013. I was just curious to know if you got cured of your pituitary tumor following the remedies that Dr. Ted suggested? If yes please let me know which remedy worked the best for you. I would be of great help to me as I just want to get rid of this tumor in my head.
Hope, Bc Canada

The essential oil Frankincense is used for tumors in the head among other things. Google "the truth about cancer" and you will find more information.
Take it easy - it is curable.
