A Day With Chris Teo

Research on effectiveness of herbs and alternative therapies for cancer

Archive for the month “December, 2014”

Medicine Could Not Cure Her Pains! Joint pains, rashes etc.

Dear Dr. Teo,

Good day.

I know you are very reluctant to take on patient via email, and I truly believe that a disease won’t be cured by just sitting in front of a monitor. I write to you because I do not want to live with steroid, I have faith in natural healing.

I am a … PhD student studying in Australia, due to stress/ or genetic (not sure), I started to developed knee and joint pain, rashes (Dr. describe as immune system disorder symptom) and a very high ANA (640). Dr. advice me to see rheumatologist.

I was just lucky to find you when browsing about rheumatologist in Penang. I know you are a cancer specialist. I just want to ask if you willing to see me, advice me on the herbs or lifestyle that could help reduce my suffer?

Actually, I have been suffering from joint pain, fatigue, back pain, eyes dryness, ear buzzing… . I used to have asthma, cyst, fibroid, hyperthyroid, allergy, sinus, etc. Now I am suffering from rashes, skin itch, back pan and walking difficulty.

In the past 10 years, I have spent a lot of times, undergone all scans that you could find in the very prestige hospitals in Penang and never a Dr. can tell me my real problem. I am actually very reluctant to go back to a private hospital for my condition now, but I really don’t know what else I can do.

I will be back to Penang from 26 Jan to 19 Feb, I really hope to have chance to see you and get your advice. thank you for your time to read this email. Attached is my recent blood test report from the hospital in Queensland. Best regards

Reply: There is a lady — 35 plus, bank officer with RA … she was at the end of the road as far as medical treatment is concerned … the doctor wanted to give her chemo drug –. She was reluctant and came to see me … 2 weeks she got better! Yes, come and see me and we shall discuss….come by end of Jan if you can. What are you studying in Australia? Take care.


Dear Chris,


Thanks a lot for replying me, It was a surprise and full of joy 🙂 I will definitely come to see you once touch down in Penang. I am studying Economics in Queensland. See you soon. Thank you.

Prostate Cancer from Singapore

Dear Dr Teo,

I have been searching all over the internet to help my father (he’s 65) who was recently diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer. It was a great shock because he has always been adopting a healthy lifestyle – exercising every morning, not smoking, small amounts of alcohol during celebrations etc. He is scheduled to undergo an operation next Wednesday to remove his testes in order to stop the testerone from feeding the cancer cells. He opted for the surgery instead of the hormone injections. He has also been sincerely practising the buddhist chant which I taught him.

He has great determination to overcome the disease. Thank God I chanced upon your site and I would definitely love to bring him over to Penang to see you. He has also been asking for Chinese medicine to help him after the operation and requested us to help him search for a good doctor. I believe your herb remedy would do him great!

Do you think it would be good to arrange an appointment with you as we are coming from Singapore. I understand from your site that we could come by on any day to see you. But as the journey could be too long for my dad, I would hope that he gets to see you the moment we land at the airport and get a cab to your place. Would the waiting time be usually long?  Do you open over weekends? I am sorry if I have missed information in your site. (I have been pretty stressed and depressed over my dad’s situation.)

I would think he should be able to travel two to three weeks after op, and that means sometime in January.

Dear Dr Teo,

I have emailed you the following info at another email address.

Just an add on – the doctor advised my father to have the op and then to go back to the hospital for regular checking of his PSA. My father and I would think that your herbs would help him with his PSA after reading several feedback from relatives of similar patients. His current PSA is 260+.

Hope that he or I could see you very soon! Till then, be well!

 Reply: Two to three weeks after op, and that means sometime in January 2015. Write me again when you have decided when you want to come …I only work one day at a time.

Kidney Cancer from Los Angeles

Hi Dr. Teo,

My name is M and I have been recommended to you by my sister-in-law E whose mom has been your patient for over three years.  Her liver cancer has stabilized for a while now thanks to your potent herbal prescription and her strict vegetarian diet as well, but most of all, God’s mercy, as you would agree…

I am trying to research holistic options for my best friend/mentor J who is full of love, grace, and wisdom.  Two weeks ago she was diagnosed for cancer that started from the kidney which is now in Stage 4. J is about 67-68 and a role model for everyone who lives his/her self to the full potentials. She ministers to others and has so much love for everyone that one would automatically be drawn to her because of her inner and outer beauty and her love for God.

My question is, do you treat kidney cancer patients? If so, would you be willing to skype with her assuming this is the route she is willing to pursue? I know that she does not want to undergo chemo, and so holistic approach is definitely her direction.  As with logistics for the herbal pills, my large family and friends in Jakarta travel to the US often, so I can always have them purchase the pills … and bring them here for J.

Please kindly let me know either way. I do believe God bless you with healing hands. There is a purpose for that gift, and thus I would appreciate your openness to this “long distance” patient situation. Regardless, I am sure she can benefit from your recommendation as well for what she should eat and what she should avoid, if you would agree to share. Thank you so much and God Bless,

Reply: I am sorry I just cannot help people from faraway place by just sitting in from of the computer!

The Incurable Angiosarcoma on the Head

Dear Dr. Chris,

In June 2014 there was a lesion developed on the scalp of my husband. It was diagnosed BCC by the skin doctor, who prescribed him some cream to apply on it. The cream did not help, so we went to a surgeon for further consultation. The surgeon recommended him to see a plastic surgeon, to remove the lesion.

The lesion was removed without difficulty, the biopsy result was “Squamous Cell Carcinoma” – All the margins are free of tumour.

Two weeks later after the removal of the lesion, the surrounding areas of his scalp started to grow some new small lesions. We were recommended to see the skin specialists in KL Hospital for treatment. With the first biopsy result of Squamous Cell Carcinoma, the specialists assumed that the lesions were of same type and referred us to the plastic surgeon department to remove the few lesions on his scalp with big margins, by applying the skin graft method.

However, a different biopsy result came back from the Pathology Department of KL Hospital for the surgery, it is now diagnosed “Angiosarcoma” – a very rare & aggressive blood vessel cancer, with poor prognosis of curing.

My husband did not go for any chemo treatment, he underwent Dendritic Cell Therapy and finished his 6 vaccines recently.

We have no idea if the Dendritic Cell Therapy would work in killing the cancer cells or not……. recently, I discovered some small red dots appearing on his scalp again.

We consulted 2 oncologists, one recommended him to go for another big margin surgery on scalp with free margin, then start with radiotherapy. Another said, “go for holiday, when your condition is getting worse, I would start with chemo drug with you”.  More of less, the oncologists are not giving us any hope for a “cure”. The PET result in Nov showed the cancer cells are not spreading to any of his organs yet,

We are from Putrajaya,  its no problem for us to come to your clinic for your consultation. Fyi, my husband is still in a very good health condition at the moment, he can eat and sleep well, and he has no pain at all.

Please help us, I cannot wait and see that my husband’s health is deteriorating, I know that this is a very serious case, its involving his life.

Please give us a quick reply and treatment, as I don’t know how much time is still left till the illness totally controlled his health & life.

Many thanks in advance.

Reply: I really don’t know what I can do to help …because I cannot promise a cure. The way it is, it looks like the cancer has come back again … and you say after Dendritic cell therapy?????? This is the third case of patient telling me things get worse after such treatment! One died after receiving this treatment in Japan …. you can come and see me if you like but I really can’t say much by reading email.

Thank you for your quick reply.

Would it be possible that we get an appointment with you soonest (still this week) ? Since we have to drive all the way from KL to Penang, would it be possible that we have a “special “appointment arranged with you not within the mentioned consultation days/hours, in the case that we can’t make it to come only on Friday (3pm-5pm) and Sunday (7pm-9pm)  ?

Would appreciate much yr reply & help. Many thanks.

Reply: You can see me on Monday to Friday ..at about 11 am ….but let me know first …also bring all medical records.

Dear Dr. Chris,

Can you recommend or write to your good contacts in Germany, who is able or has experiences in dealing this tough case of my husband, I am really at lost…. don’t know what to do, and how to save my husband’s life ?????? I just cannot wait and let it be till the last day to come !

I checked “black salve” via internet, it is dangerous to apply it on your own without any professional guidance.

The donor site Skin Graft wound on his thigh is still not fully healed yet (more than 3 months). At the moment, we go 2 times per week back to hospital for dressing change, the condition has improved lately, the wound is slowly drying up, a layer of thin skin is appearing….It is very important that his wound would heal soonest, at least he can start to walk more, do exercises, and to live a “normal life”

Another issue that he has to take care, is of course, to stop the further spreading of his illness. To find a “treatment”, that won’t kill him faster instead, but where and how ?????

A question – If he were to start with your medicines NOW, will the effects of tea/capsules cause any “interruption” or influences on the continued healing process of the wound ? it is important that there is absolutely no interact impact or fall back reaction on his wound. The wound treatment Dr. told him to stop taking Tumeric capsules, because it causes more discharge, the blood becomes thinner…..

Pls advise, and pls HELP (if you are able) ! though you told us yesterday clearly, that you have not encountered any single case so far throughout your experiences, but maybe you could check around, if you know someone, who does ! The lesions are growing bigger and more, (maybe they are only localised on the scalp surface now, if untreated, the soft tissue tumours will grow deeper into the tissue, with consequence, spreading to his inner organs…..I dare not to think of the pains and sufferings that will come !

I don’t want to give up HOPE, and I need my husband.

Many thanks.

Reply: This is the German clinic guide book …PLEASE DO YOUR OWN HOMEWORK … I cannot answer all those questions …I prefer that you see someone else for help ….. (Note: I have spent some two hours with patient and family. There is nothing else I can do to help because I have said enough during the consultation).


Rheumatoid Arthritis for 14 years

Dear Dr Chris Teo,

I am a Rheumatoid Arthritis patient since year 2000. It is an auto-immune disease , I wonder if you treat or have herbal medicine for patients with such condition.

Hope for your reply. Thanks and regards. 

Reply: You are from Singapore? Yes, we did help patients with RA but it is up to you to believe.

Thanks for your reply Dr Chris Teo. Will arrange a day to see you. 

Reply: To know if the e-therapy can help or is effective or not, you need to use it for 5 days …one day is no use.

Breast Cancer from Jakarta: Alternatives that never cure!

Dear Mr. Teo,

I am writing this email on behalf of my mother who is suffering from breast cancer since 2005. We would like to consult her problems with you via the Internet. We are based in Jakarta, Indonesia.

I am aware that based on recent experiences that you no longer accept consultation via email anymore, but I’m afraid this is the only method my mother and I can communicate with you at the moment.

My mother, now 57 years old, has cancer on her right breast, and later on, her right armpit was also infected. She has never undergone professional medical treatments, and only resorted to traditional, alternative treatments. She said that she was (and still is) afraid and not ready to undergo medical procedures that, in turn, would only worsen her conditions —or so she believes.

We have been trying numerous alternative treatments in Jakarta to no avail. Her conditions did not worsen, but did not get better either. At the moment she takes K-Muricata (Annona muricata or soursup, and typhonium flagelillforme) to cure her cancer. As she is suffering breast cancer, she loses a lot of blood which causes low hemoglobin (HB) level. As a result, she often gets headaches and feels so tiresome. Thus, explains her inability to travel. To increase her HB level, she takes Gold-G Sea Cucumber Jelly and mangosteen extract juice.

Shall you need more information on her conditions, please let me know.

Reply: I cannot help by just reading the email? What do you expect me to do?

Lung Cancer from Singapore: Surgery, Chemo, Radiation, Iressa – did not help

Dear Chris,

My mom now age 68 has stage 4 lung cancer and i would like to bring her to see u.  As we are from Singaapore, can u please advise if we were to see u on a Friday, how long must we stay in Penang to get the medicine please?   If Sun, any different?

I will provide the latest CT scan n medical reports when we visit,  but here is a short summary.

  • Diagnose with Stage 3A Lung cancer in April 2012.  Went through chemo and radiation immediately in preparation for surgery.
  • Start TCM 19 May 2012.
  • Surgery to remove lower portion of right lung on  10 Aug 2012.
  • After surgery, discover there were still cancer cells in some of  the bio samples taken out.  Scheduled to go for chemo but could not go due to low white blood cells.   Rely totally on TCM to try to kill cancer cells and rebuilt immunity meanwhile.
  • In Sep 2013, progression of cancer. Start Irressa 21 Sep 2013.
  • Irressa not effective 2 Dec 2014 (1 yr 2 mths).
  • Now ask to go chemo to prolong life.

The last time my mom went through chemo, she was in so much pain n could not walk.  It was not expected by the oncologist.   We are going to say no to more chemos n radiations.

Thanks very much for taking time to read my email.

Reply:  I don’t not think you need to bring your mom to see us. There is really nothing much I can do to help. You have done all what the doctors wanted her to do — surgery, chemo, radiation, Iressa etc… and no help. And she is also  on TCM. Why don’t she continue taking the TCM herbs .. I cannot cure her cancer… even you come and see me what do you expect me to do? Regards.
