Lymphoma ? and Bad Kidneys from Indonesia: Can Cure?

Dear Dr. Teo,Firstly I would like to introduce myself to You. My name is J from Jakarta, Indonesia.

I have a father who is not in good condition now. He is 58 years old. Last 27 January 2011 I took my dad to Royal Taruma Hospital Jakarta. He was often vomit around 3 days and also got fever before he entered the hospital. The doctor said that both of my dad’s kidneys are not good. So they cannot work normal as a health people.

When my dad in the hospital he stopped vomiting and day by day he was getting well. But the case is not close until that, because there is another problem on my dad’s right neck. His neck started swollen since the first of January. But my dad didn’t feel it seriously until he felt hurt when he is eat and talking. It started 2 weeks before 27 January 2011. So when he was in the hospital the doctor did some test for my dad such as:  U.S.G. And then the doctor suggested us to do biopsy on my dad’s neck as soon as possible. So we decide to do it the next day after the doctor suggest us. Because we want to know what exactly is it. The biopsy was going well and we need to wait a week to get the result from laboratorium. But because last week was Chinese New Year so it was public holiday here. Then we get the result last Wednesday 9 February 2011.


According to the result that asked us to continue to IHK process. So yesterday (February 11, 2011) we give/send the sample from last biopsy to another hospital named DARMAIS HOSPITAL so they can do the IHK process. And we will get the result after 3 weeks. They said they will recheck from beginning again to make sure it is a cancer or not, if they find it is not a cancer so they will contact us directly. But if they find it is a cancer they will continue the test to IHK process.

Last night I met the doctor, the doctor said that to see my dad’s condition it is impossible to do chemo because chemo will effect to his kidney.

His condition now:

Now he is not able to eat and talk because his neck is swollen and he felt hurt when he swallows the meals or medicine. And also he has no appetite. So i only give him milk to him. Because more easy to him to swallow at all by liquid.

He is weak and felt hurt.  The doctor gave some medicine for his kidney but mostly they are vitamins. The doctor asked us to make my dad keep eating according to the diet.

After I read your web, I hope I can get the solution from you what to do now for my dad. As you mention on your web about herbal treatment for cancer. Because it is impossible to do chemo as my dad’s kidneys are not good and also the cost of chemo treatment is quiet expensive. Is it possible to heal at all (his cancer and his kidney) by your herbal treatment without any bad effect to his kidneys.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Hodgkin’s Disease from Australia

Good afternoon, My name is JK. I am from Melbourne, Australia.

My twelve-and-half-year-old daughter has been diagnosed with Hodgkin’s disease. We have suspected of this for some eleven months ago. We have been on organic juicing, diet and also Chinese herbs /acupuncture for sometime. I bought the Gerson’s Therapy book and a juicer last December. We have also been taking the apricot kernels but have stopped those since 2 or 3 weeks ago.

Two and a half weeks ago her neck swelled. We had to go to the conventional doctors to get a biopsy done. Today they called to say that my daughter has Hodgkin’s disease. They also said that there is a lump in her chest. They are pushing for chemotherapy but I am suspicious of this treatment as my wife passed away from liver cancer last year and I believed the chemotherapy that she underwent made her worse?! This made my daughter very scared.

My daughter is not in any pain. She just has a slight fever on and off.

Can you please advise me? A friend of mine a health researcher, Ella Hayes told me about you. So I looked you up on Goggle. If I have to, I’ll bring my daughter to your clinic. Can you please advise me of costs, etc.

We are currently having a clean diet, vitamins, juicing and also trying selenium, etc. One other thing, we have stopped pancreatic enzymes and apricot kernels and are trying liquid selenium. We cut back on juicing and switched to raw vegetables. We are having Q10 and Vitamin C though. It is confusing because you read so many treatments in the net.

I am concerned because the doctors will be putting pressure on me for treatment very soon.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
Thank you.


Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma from Indonesia: R-CHOP – Recurrence

I had Non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (aggressive type). After I wrote to you, I went for chemotherapy. I was given the standard drugs R-CHOP plus a monoclonal antibody (rituximab, mabthera). The doctor said that this was the best drugs he knew. The treatment was completed in March 2006, and soon I would have a “maintenance” period. The doctor will give me only mabthera every 2 months for 1 year.

I have had three times CT-scan and the scan showed “all clear” of lymphoma. But two weeks ago USG result indicated swelling of two lymph nodes near by my right armpit each about 5mm diameter. The doctor suggested that I have another USG scan down in the next 3 to 6 months.

I do really want to try your herbs/therapy, please kindly let me know any information regarding to be healed. Thank you.



Lymphoma From Negeri Sembilan: Gave up Chemo

Dear Dr. Chris Teo,

I just read about the alternative treatment for cancer.

I have a sister, age 49. She is suffering from follicular lymphoma for the past four years. She had gone through chemo and sought treatment at the Kuala Lumpur General Hospital and Nilai Cancer Institute. She abandoned her chemo treatment (she did for 3 sessions  of oral chemo at NCI and 01 session at GH KL – intravenous type) as she couldn’t stand the side effects. And moreover, the GH doctor kept on persuading and pressuring her to take some specimen from the bone marrow tissue, which she totally refused.  Though she’s not taking any more medication from NCI or GH, she is still strong but not so healthy. I just lost my youngest sister last October 2008 due to cancer. I really hope if you could advise me about this herbal therapy as an alternative, as soon as possible.

Looking forward to your prompt reply.

Dear Dr Chris Teo,


I am from S, Negeri Sembilan. My sister is now living at my hometown. She is no longer working due to her condition. Many thanks for your prompt reply.

By the way, I heard about this herbal treatment after a friend forward to me an email about Typhonium flagelliforme / rodent tuber used as an herbal treatment for cancer. The email is from a friend’s friend from Jakarta, Indonesia. From this information, I checked the website/internet “Cancer Care Penang” and found your details.

My sister always look for any alternative treatment for her cancer treatment.

Actually, it is very frustrating to hear/know someone who is suffering from cancer and only found out at almost advanced stage and couldn’t be saved or couldn’t stand the side effects of the medications mainly on drugs usage which killed all your good cells makes the person weaker and weaker, not recovering but worst!

My late father also died of brain tumour, in year 2001, my youngest sister died of neuro fibromatosis in Oct 2008, and now another sister (older than me by 4 years) is suffering from follicular lympoma. I took care of them both financially and gave them moral support. I do hope that you will be able to give some advice on this herbal treatment, its no harm to try and with God’s blessing, maybe miracle can work!
