CML: Can you help BUT on my own terms?

Hi Master Chris,

A very good day to you. I am from Kuala Lumpur. My husband (47yrs) is having this ‘CML stage 1 (chronic myloid leukemia) since last year Aug’12. Since Sept’12 till now ( 6 months ) he has been taking this meds (nilotinib) and every months he has to go back to the hospital to take his blood test.

After taking nilotinib his white blood cell have gone back to the normal range. He only got slight side effect which may be due to the meds such as morning flu and rashes on the body and his head got a few small dots. Once his leg got swollen “gout” and now he has to control his diet. Sometimes he has difficulty  breathing and was told by his previous dr that his liver is not so good.

He does not take any Chinese herbs b’cos his dr told him not to cos it might affect the effectiveness of the meds.

Besides all these minor side effect he is doing okay.

Now and as usual he is still working and often travel overseas every week (this is his nature of work).

Every day he is taking (nilotinib) twice a day and foods 2 hrs before and after meds (means 4pm onwards do not take food = then 6pm eat meds = after 2hrs 8pm onwards can eat)

* 2 capsules ( 2 @ 150mg = 300mg ) in the morning (6am)

* 2 capsules ( 2 @ 150mg = 300mg ) in the evening (6pm)

According to his dr he has to take this meds whole life or until remission. I have been having sleepless nights searching the internet for solutions and have been thinking that my husband needs to built up his immune systems to heal himself rather than controlling it and this is how I stumble on your website.

So master Chris could you help or advice us? He can only take your herbs by capsules/tablets only (due to his nature of work). Thank you so much for your time. May God Bless You Master Chris! Regards, 

Reply: It is very hard to help if you / he wants healing on his own terms. It is just not possible. I am sorry I cannot help. Why don’t you just continue with your doctor? Chris

Colon-Liver Cancer: Go home and die

Dr., last 2 days I went back to hospital to see the surgeon as I want to know how he would explain my condition in detail. During our conversation, I took down notes down for your reference, as follows:

Wong:   Dr. what actually had happen to me? Can you explain in more detail? I thought this is only a minor surgery in closing my colostomy. I did the CT scan and colonscopy in Oct, 2012 before coming in to closet on Jan, 2013. You said everything is fine. The only thing is in the future I pass bowel a little bit difficult since my rectum is narrow.

Dr. X :  Your cancer tumors spread too fast after surgery although we have checked it before surgery.

W: Why these few days I pass bowel there’s a lot of blood (50% stools and 50% blood) coming out and the anus burn and so painful?

Dr. X :   Oh. your anus pain every time you pass bowel is because it is too narrow to pass through. There’s blood in your bowel mainly because your cancer tumors had spread and its messy inside your colon. This I can’t help you anything as you had stage 4 CA Rectum although it has been removed in 2012. It had recurred.

W:     Can you do any surgery to open the colostomy as previously I had before? I don’t want to suffer like this.

Dr. X :  The risk is too high. Maybe only 30% chance of survival if I do the surgery again because your intestine had burst and moreover the tumors are everywhere in your colon. You will die on the table due to serve bleeding. 

W:  That means I leave it like this, everyday suffering from tummy bloatness and waiting to die one of these days? Do you think how long can I survive?

Dr. X  : I’m sorry we really can’t do anything. Go home and spend your precious time with your family while you are able to now. Maybe you have less than 3 months to live or even shorter.

W:   I am really disappointed with what you have said as I had full confidence in you but after all these, you say you can’t do anything. Since last year I had took my CEA till Jan this year. My index never exceeded 6 ng/mL.  Lowest was 2.5 ng/mL. One last question:  why now there’re stools coming out from the wound that you close the colostomy.

Dr. X:   Stools do come out sometimes because you can’t move your bowel at the down part. Once you can move it, there won’t be any stools coming out again. It will close by itself if everything is fine one of these days. So don’t worry about that. You wear the colostomy bag in the mean time.

Dr. Chris, I won’t give up just like this. I will continue to take your herbs as every time you said CA Care Center is the last stop for people like us.

The patient’s full story will be presented later  – including his video conversation with us.

Childhood Rhabdomyosarcoma from India

Dear Sir,

I got to know about you from internet. I need a help for a nine yr old girl detected with naso-pharyngeal rhabdomyosarcoma a year back. She was operated on, received chemo and radiation, but all failed. And now she is just near to death. Please can you help??? I am from India.

Reply:  I am sorry it is just not possible for me to help patients from far away places.

Note:  Rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) is the most common soft tissue sarcoma in children. The name is derived from the Greek words rhabdo, which means rod shape, and myo, which means muscle.

It begins in mesenchymal cells (immature cells that normally become muscle). It develops in a type of muscle called striated muscle. Striated muscles are the skeletal voluntary muscles, which are those muscles that people can control. Rhabdomyosarcoma is most often found in children and young adults.

Rhabdomyosarcoma can occur anywhere in the body:

  • Head and neck, about 39% of all rhabdomyosarcoma cases. This includes parameningeal sites (near the membranes covering the brain), 24%; eye socket, 8%; and other head and neck locations, 7%.
  • Urinary or reproductive organs, about 29% of cases
  • Arms or legs, about 15% of cases
  • Other sites, about 17% of cases. This includes the trunk (torso), intrathoracic (inside the lung and/or chest), biliary tract, retroperitoneal, pelvic, and perineal sites (close to the anus, vagina, and urinary structures).


Breast Cancer: After Chemo She Went In Coma

My mum was diagnosed with breast cancer two years ago and she had the right breast removed. After that she underwent chemotherapy as well as bone supplementation. At the end of the sessions,  .the doctor recommended six more sessions of chemotherapy. This she started late last year but after the second session, she had sepsis and went into coma.

At the moment she is awake but still bed ridden. We’ve been informed that the cancer has spread to her bones. I would like your advice on what options do we have.

Reply: I really don’t know what to say after reading this. Go to website and read what I wrote. If you need help come and see me.

Colon-Liver Cancer from Bulgaria

Hello Chris,

I am from Bulgaria and found your website from a video on the Internet http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oCQfXRy-mmo

My grandmother had a colon cancer removed a year ago and in the past week, had stomach pains.

They took her to the hospital and the images show advanced metastases in the liver. There is nothing the doctors would do – she is 85, but in a great overall health – she takes care of the household and my grandfather

Do you absolutely require the person to make a visit to the clinic, or can I fill in all the questioners and buy the herbs you recommend on line?

Thanks you very much for your help and time!

Reply: If you go into my wesbite: www.cacare.org I have given an lengthy explanation why I am not able to help patients from foreign countries…I am sorry.

For those who ask for help online

Thank you very much for writing to us about your problem. We fully understand the need to find alternative methods when medical science has failed. CA Care exists because of this need. In the past we did try to help cancer patients via the net. But our experience showed that we failed miserably. It did not work out.

To be useful to cancer patients:

I need to see patients personally or at least a family member who knows exactly the problem. I need to talk to them and assess their problems face to face. By seeing the patients, I might be able know what was wrong with them. Then I need to see all the medical reports and scans – blood test results, USG, MRI, CT or PET scan.  It is only after this study and dialogue that I know exactly what to do and prescribe the herbs. There are over 100 types of herbal teas that we specially formulated for cancer patients and they are specific for each problem. So to get the best from our experience means we just cannot do things on line.

After patient takes the herbs, I would need them to come back again after a week or two for me to assess the effectiveness of the herbs. If there is a need to I may have to add or subtract certain herbs.

By meeting and talking to patients and know what they eat, how they live, etc. I would be able to know what has gone wrong and suggest changes.

Cancer is a complex problem that involves both physical and mental aspects. Taking herbs alone is no magic. We have to do more than that – change of lifestyle, mental attitude, diet etc.

The above is nothing new. Patients need to be physically present to get help from their medical doctors. Every patient knows that. The same applies to CA Care. This is even more necessary knowing that almost all patients who come or write to us are medically failed cases – they are generally at the end stage where their doctors cannot meaningfully help them anymore. So at CA Care, I need to be more serious and more committed than just reading emails and trying to play god.

I hope you understand through this short explanation that it is extremely hard for me to help patients who live in foreign countries. I have tried this for some years and my experience showed me that at the end of it all, it is just a waste of effort and also a waste of money on your part. It is most frustrating indeed for me.

If you have read our articles in the websites: http://www.cacere.com or http://www.cacare.org or http://www.CancerCareMalaysia.com patients do experience miraculous healing. You will note that these patients (or a family member) come here and we do the therapy together. That is the reason why they succeed. I need to see patients every now and then to know what is going on.

I don’t want to be negative.  I understand that you need help but I must be sincere and honest to myself too. In my heart I know there are times and situations when I just cannot help. The problem is beyond me to solve. And I also know that I cannot solve everybody’s problem in this world. I have been working very hard every day to help cancer patients and I know in my heart that I can do that much and no more.

But please don’t give up. If you open up your heart and mind, you will know that there are also alternative healers in your own country. Why don’t you try them? Ask around and you may find one. I am sorry for being unable to help.
