A Day With Chris Teo

Research on effectiveness of herbs and alternative therapies for cancer

Archive for the month “April, 2013”

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

Colon Cancer Spread to Liver Even After Surgery and Chemo

Dear Dr Chris,

My mother, K is currently suffering from Colon cancer metastasis liver. Part of her colon was removed last year and he did 6 session of chemo last March 2012. But last month her liver tumor have gotten bigger & doctor wants her to do chemo again. Mum is very afraid and this is how I found you. We have read your success stories & we hope you can help my mother.

I also start bringing my mother to church & I hope god can give her strength. She has read your articles in your website & she is very positive to go for your treatment.

Today I have call your office but you are not around. Your wife told us to come on Friday or Sunday. I saw your website says that your centre is open Sunday from 7 pm to 9 pm. So we decided to travel down from Kuala Lumpur to see you this Sunday (31 March).

See you soon & we hope for the best.

Stage 4 Colon Cancer Spread to Lungs

Hi Dr,

My colleague is suffering from stage 4 colon cancer and the cancer has spread to her lungs. She has yet to start chemo and/or surgery yet despite the doctor advised. She want an alternative treatment. Can you advise and help. TQ 

Reply: Go to my website: www.cacare.com and also read the latest book: Cancer: What Now?  —- let her decide. Chris

 

From Singapore: Problems and problems: So sorry we are not a hospital doing everything!

Dear Dr Teo

I chanced upon your website and I am very keen to fly to Penang to seek consultation from you.

I am a 38 yrs old S’porean woman. I have many health issues like perpetual lower back/shoulder ache, obesity, numbness in my arms/fingers in the morn, body odour and more. My husband also has bad headaches for a long time. Hence we both like to meet you.

As I read your website, I noticed the usage of  e-therapy machine. May I please ask how much is this machine? Must I purchase it for continual usage after seeing you 5 x? I am not well-to-do. In fact I need to save up from now to see you in June. I am a homemaker and I have 3 kids. I can only see you during the last week of June (24-28 June) and I have to bring my 3 kids along as no one can help me.

Once I know the cost of the machine, I can plan whether to fly to Penang or drive up. Cos driving is cheaper but I worry it’s very taxing for my husband who is prone to headaches.

I look forward to hearing from you soon so I can buy air tickets quickly if necessary. A few budget airlines are having promotions now.

Best regards
Dear Chris

Thanks for your speedy reply.

Can I please pay for the machine with a credit card? If yes, let me ask my husband to take leave from 24-28June 2013. Once his leave is approved, I’ll contact you asap to finalise and book my air tickets.

If no, I gotta save up enough cash before flying down to see you this December. I’ll email you then on the dates to check your availability.

By the way, do you treat kids aged 6 and 8yrs old?

Reply:  I understand your problem. In fact I think it is a wrong thing for you to come and see me.

First, I only see cancer patients — I only work with cancer problems and also, I am not a Chinese sinseh. .Also you just cannot come one time and expect to get well. I cannot solve all your problems or your husband’s problems like magic.

I suggest that you go to the SGH — see the doctors there and they can help you. If you want herbs, you go and see the TCM section. My patients tell me they give out herbs. Then you can go back again and again without problem.

NO one or doctor can solve your problem by just seeing him once — for you to come and see me again and again is extremely difficult or just impossible.

>Also my machine is NOT magic. I don’t know how to repair it either. If something goes wrong, we have to send it back to the US and it is extremely difficult. And again it cost money. And you have to come back to see me again.

So far no one say the machine is not working BUT for sure it will not last forever — if after some years is cannot work anymore it is too bad.

I hope you understand. I think the SGH TCM doctors can help you better than me for your non-cancer problems and being Singaporeans I believe your government should be able to help you.

Regards, Chris

Dear Chris

Thanks for your reply. I saw in your website that you helped others for pains and weight loss, that’s why I tot of approaching you, even though I saw that you are helping many cancer patients.

I have very bad shoulder and lower back aches for a long time. When I see western docs in clinics or hospitals, all they suggest are painkillers and physiotherapy or they said it’s my pillow or sitting posture. My aches are so bad that I even have numb fingers and arms in the morning once I wake up. Some times at night, I am awakened by sharp pains in my arms and I hardly sleep well. I wake up a few times at night.

I recently went for a few TCM massages and the therapist said I hv ‘blocked qi’ everywhere and it’s affecting my blood circulation and body functioning. The therapist was even saying that if I don’t fix the blockages on my back, I will get a stroke soon. I have constipation and no matter how much I rest, I always feel tired.

I have relatives (my paternal uncles) who have history of cancer. One uncle even died from colon cancer within 4 mths. I know you are not a TCM but I believe somehow my problems now will lead to bigger health issues one day, if I don’t’ fix them now. I have 3 kids and I worry for them.

I am not expecting miracles from you and I also know that machines don’t last a lifetime. As financially tight as I am, I am hoping I can find a solution for my health issues.

If you still don’t think I should see you, I understand. Nevertheless, I’ll keep your contact, should I need to seek treatment for cancer from you one day.

Thanks for your prompt replies. I greatly appreciate them. Best regards.

Singapore: Breast Cancer Spread to Bone and Lung?

Dear Dr. Chris Teo,

I was introduced to you by Danny Ching. He was a former cancer patient. I learnt from him that you can advise cancer patients.

Three weeks ago, my mother, Mdm, aged 70, was diagnosed with lung cancer. The lung cancer spread to the lymph node on the neck, spinal bone, heart. She was a former breast cancer patient in 2003. Since that time, she undergone radiotherapy to treat the breast cancer after surgery. Now she had tumor on another breast. But the doctor says that it is not related to the lung cancer.

According to the oncologist, through the CT scan, the doctors found that she has EGFR + Exon 19 mutation. Currently, she is on oral chemo drug. She has completed her radiotherapy to kill cancer of the lymph node.

Would you recommend her to Cancer Care? Hope to hear from you soon.

Best regards, AT

Reply: You have to come and see me with all the medical reports etc.

Cervical Cancer from Miri, Sarawak

Dear Chris,

I am from Miri and I have been diagnosed with cervical cancer stage 2B. I started taking the keladi tikus in capsule form (400mg) 2 caps in the morning 30 mins before meal and 2 caps in the evening 30 mins before meal on 15march and was told after 5 days to increase the dosage to 3 caps morning and evening. My appointment for radiotherapy is on 25 March in Kuching. This morning the GH here has asked me to do a pre-chemo workout. By the way, the CT scan shows that the cancer cell is only in my cervical area and not spread to any organs. Please advise if I am doing the correct thing. Thank you for your reply.

Regards,

Reply:  I don’t know what is the right thing by sitting in front of the computer!  Go and see the doctor.  Where do you get the keladi tikus? Did you come to see me, CA Care? Go to our websitewww.cacare.com to learn more. Chris

Thank you for your advice.

Dear Chris,

I would like to go to your centre for consultation but am not sure when I am able to do so. I would like to know if you have accommodation provided at your centre and what the charges is like. I would also like to know what documents or medical records I have to bring for consultation and the charges.

Thank you and God bless you.

Breast Cancer from Jakarta: Which surgeon to go to?

Dear Dr Chris,

We thank God that we find your CA Care website in the internet.

We watched the video titled “Different Doctor Different Treatment”, and we really want to visit you and the third doctor in that video.

We would really appreciate if you could let us know when we can meet you and who the third doctor is, and in which hospital we can meet him.

Fyi, my sister, EC (38 yo) had a mammografi test 2 days ago. The result is she had a suspected malignant tumour in her right breast, about 3 cm.

We visited an oncologist, at Dharmais Hospital in Jakarta yesterday. His advised is to take out the tumour as soon as possible, check whether the tumour is dangerous or not.

If the tumour is not dangerous (that is what we are praying for right now), then the doctor will only take out the tumour.

But, if the tumour is dangerous, than the doctor’s plan is to take out all of the right breast together with the tumour.

What we would like to do now is to find a second opinion and to have the surgery in a good hospital in Penang.

That is why we really need your help to advise us who is the right doctor that we can meet in a hospital in Penang. A doctor with a tender heart, listening ears, easy to discuss with and of course, can give us his best advice.

We believe you can help us on this, please let us know when can we meet you, either after meeting the doctor in question, or after meeting him/her.

Thank you and God bless you.

Best regards.

Reply: Come and see me with all your medical reports and I shall tell you what to do. Chris

Reply: Go to my website: www.cacare.org and you know that Saturday is always closed.  Come and see me on Sunday night from 7 pm to 9 pm or Monday morning at 10.30 am. Chris

 

Liver Cancer from Indonesia

Hi Dr. Chris,

I have a question to ask, my father is down with liver cancer stage 4. He finds this out in January 2013. He is unable to travel to Malaysia. He lives in Indonesia.

My question is; is it possible for you to diagnose his illness and gives him medicine without him present at the consultation. We, however will be bringing his diagnosis from Singaporean doctors.

Thank You very much and hope to hear from you soon.

Sincerely Yours,

S

Reply:  Come and see me with all medical reports . No need to bring the patient if he cannot travel.

 

Tongue Cancer from Singapore – Trapped?

Dear Dr Chris Teo,

My name is N from Singapore. I’m sorry that I have to consult you via email. I would like to find out if you are able to help my husband with his health issue.

My husband was diagnosed with tongue cancer (stage 2) in May last year. We consulted several doctors and concluded that he has to go through a major operation to remove the tumor. However, after much  considerations, we decided to opt for alternative treatments.
He has been undergoing sessions of bio-resonance treatments. After several months of treatment, we have been told that the tumor has since stablised and that it is in a benign state and not mutating.

However, there is a swell and pain on his tongue which, according to the therapists, is caused by parasites, bacteria and fungus. It has been there for several months and it seems to be getting bigger since. He’s now having difficulties with eating solid food and speaking as the swelling in my tongue is quite bad. And he’s having a lot of discomfort and constant pain.

I am wondering if you are able to help him with your e-Therapy and herbs.
Hope to get some professional advice from you.

Reply:  You write: tumor has since stablised and that it is in a benign state and not mutating. I think you are being told nonsense! .NO one … NO ONE (repeat) honest enough can know that, if he understands enough cancer biology.   But to say he is getting better is okay but not to explain in such “scientific” terms.

You just have to come and see me with all the reports and medical reports. I can’t help by sitting in front of the computer. Chris

Comments: Unfortunately patients like to hear what they want to hear or hope to hear.  Unfortunately, that trap is well known and is being used by most  healers.

From India: Pancreatic Cancer that Spreads to the Liver. Gemzar not effective

Dr Chris,

My father was diagnosed with ca head of pancreas in India and he has undergone 6 rounds of chemotherapy with Gemzar. He started chemo late August and finished February 2013. His Ca 19.9 was 1085 iu at the start , then 750 iu after the 2nd cycle then 622.25 iu after the fourth. Then after the 6th cycle and a month later he repeated the test and it’s down to 392.22 iu/ml.

For the cost of travelling we decided to meet a Dr from my country Nigeria. He prescribed Tarceva and while browsing for information about the drug I ran into your website. I read a lot and am motivated to try alternative to chemical medicine. We want to give natural medicine so that we have positive side effects along with the care.

Presently, I just collected my father’s CT scan and it reads:

Features suggestive of pancreatic neoplasm with hepatic metastases. Left renal hydronephrosis and proximal hydroureter noted (?regional invation to the left ureter).

So as it is, the case is getting worse so we need to make plans fast to start on your herbs.

I know cancer has no cure but I know the quality of life can be improved if we care with herbs and improved diet.

R (Daughter)

Reply: Pancreatic cancer is the worse cancer and is very, very difficult. It is very hard for me to take care of patients from far away countries. It is just impossible. Chris
