Research on effectiveness of herbs and alternative therapies for cancer

From Mumbai, India: Cancer (Peritoneal carcinmatosis ? Ovary with metastasis to liver?

Dear Sir,

This is regarding my mother Mrs. Suri who has recently been diagnosed with Cancer. I have already filled the registration form on the your website and am now enclosing all her medical investigations, reports, treatment being done  etc.

She has been advised 3 cycles of chemo therapy by Dr S H, Mumbai. Her first chemo was on 12.02.2013 and the next is due on 05.03.2013. Thanks and regards.

Reply: If you think I can help you, please come and see me personally with all the medical reports and scans. I am sorry we are not a direct selling company – we don’t sell herbs on line. I have already explained why we cannot offer help online as written in our website: www.cacare.org  and this is reproduced below:

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: www.cacere.com or www.cacare.org orwww.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.

Dear Doctor,

Thank you for your reply. I fully appreciate your stand and agree that a physical interaction is must for an effective treatment plan.  My only handicap was the time lag to get the visa and then fly to Penang and back which would cost us a lot of time and hence I was hoping for a discussion via email /skype. My friend Mr. Raj who is locally based there had offered to go to Penang to collect the medicines on my behalf and had also spoken to your wife on this.

Anyhow, if you prefer it’s imperative that Ii come personally (the patient unfortunately cannot travel since she is admitted in the hospital) then please advice if you can see me in the coming week like Tuesday or Wednesday and I shall get the visa processed and come to you immediately with all reports and details. Since my mother is already in the hospital and I am following up the matters here, most me or my younger brother will visit you. Both of us are well versed with her case.

Please advice. Thanking you.

Reply: You need to know that there is NO such thing as a cure. From the reports, I don’t think anybody can do anything at all.

Dear Doctor,

I understand that we cannot cure the disease. And Yes, it’s only symptomatic treatment that is being administered. Sir, I hope you will appreciate that like any son, I want to do the best I can for my mother. I am only looking at the possibility of prolonged survival and quality of life.

On the basis of the information you have on hand do you think this could be achieved? Please guide.

Reply: Difficult for me to say. I can only do my best but my best may not be achieved because it is out of my control. How can I help when the patient is far away? But if you think you want to try, you can come and bring the reports and scans. Chris
