Swollen Eye: Cancer

Dear Sir, Mdme,

I,ve heard about your hospital for cancer from Herlin Nias.  I would like to ask about my father  90 years old with good health. One month ago, suddenly his left eye become red and has inflammatory (bengkak in Indonesia language). After several time to Eye Medical Specialist, he had a CT Scan. According to result : he has cancer inside left side nose and eye and is a serious stadium, because of destruction of bone and “intrakranial” which according to doctor, the cancer has already attack brain.

I’ ve also made an consultation with Medical Doctor, specialist in Onkology Surgeon,who also said that he could not do surgery for my father because of “intrakranial” condition and also because of age (90 year old). One possibility is only radiation, but also have a big risk, because of age factor.

My question is : what can we (me and my brother and sister) do about my father cancer? Attached please find photos of my father 1 month ago and today, and also 1 copy of CTS can result.

Thanks to God for my father now is still in good health and do not feel sickness or anything about his cancer, except if his left eye been touch.  Waiting for your advice and or opinion. Thanks and Best Regards.

Reply: I also do not know what to say or advise you. Suddenly his condition developed so fast. I only see the pictures…how can I help? I really don’t know. I don’t know if my herbs can help at all.

Metastatic Cancer of the Rectum

Hello Dr and Mrs Chris Teo,

I am a retired medical doctor (GP) and my husband … a retired associate professor of Zoology at the University. Rev. HCS recommended you to us …I am sending it to you an email. We hope to hear from you soon. Best wishes for the New Year! May God’s abundant blessings be upon you and your ministry.

Personal details and medical history:  female, 65 years old, diagnosed with rectum cancer.  Past history of occasional blood in the stools for more than 12 years, starting after a gut infection with diarrhoea in 1997. Came down with bad arthritis pains after a Newlife detox programme in Aug 2001. Developed severe rheumatoid arthritis (diagnosed in 2004) and was treated by rheumatologist with methotrexate and prednisolone for 1 year.

In 2009, there was more blood in the stools. On 1st June 2010, had colonoscopy done by gastroenterologist – diagnosed with cancer of the rectum (Stage 3C) and had surgery the same day. The cancer had spread to lymph nodes and the right lobe of liver (2 cm tumour). On 13 June 2010, had surgery for peritonitis due to anastomosis leak, and ileostomy was done. CT scan showed 2 cm tumour in left lobe of liver also.

In mid Aug 2010, a PET scan showed 3 tumours in the liver. One tumour in left lobe of liver had grown to 6 cm. There was metastasis in the lung and the small intestine as well. The oncologist advised chemotherapy. Had surgery to close the stoma.

Started on chemotherapy on 6 Sep 2010. Tumour marker, CEA was 221 ug/L (compared to 4.9 ug/L on 9 June). Was given oral Xeloda and IV Oxaliplatin – after one cycle, platelet and white cell counts were low so the doctor took off Oxaliplatin and gave Avastin instead.

By Dec 2010, the CEA was even higher at 323 ug/L. The doctor switched to Erbitux and Campto. After 6 cycles, by May 2011, there was marked reduction in tumour size and FDG cancer activity. The CEA had dropped to 3.4 on 11 April ’11. Continued on “maintenance chemotherapy” on Erbitux and Campto until Oct 2011. Cancer activity had been slowly increasing – liver left lobe tumour size was 1.7 cm on 3 Nov ’11. The CEA went up to 6.2.

Decided to stop chemo when docotr advised going back to first line chemo drugs –  5FU, Oxaliplatin and Avastin, as I had been suffering from anxiety and much discomfort (dizziness, feeling off balance) since Sep ’11 which I suspect to be due to some viral infection.

In Nov 2011,  started on alternative treatment by PL. He uses machines to do remote healing sessions and also gives me nano-energy booster patches to apply. Now after 2 months off chemo, I can feel the left liver enlarged. Still having dizziness – MRI on 27 Dec . 2011 was normal, except for possible micro-vascular ischaemic changes.

I am currently taking Coriolus versicolor (by Mushroom Science) 400mg to 800mg a day – not sure if effective because I only started on it recently.  Have been taking for several months 4Life Transfer Factor Plus Tri-factor formula (2 capsules a day) which contains small amounts of herbs. Also take olive leaf extract and bee propolis when needed – quite effective for infections. I also took the following:

1. Barley Green or Green Magma (6 tsp daily)

2. Carrot and apple juice (about 12 oz daily)

3. Multivitamins and minerals (Now Eve women’s multi)

4. Calcium citrate malate

5. Magnesium (from magnesium glycinate/lysinate chelate), 200 mg daily

6. Zinc carnosine (PepZinGI)

7. Methyl B-12 lozenges (1000 mcg a day)

8. Folic acid (800 mcg a day)

9. Ester-C (500 mg a day)

10. Manuka honey (1 tsp a day)

11. L-glutamine (about 2 g daily)

12. Ativan (about 0.25 mg before bed) – tranquilizer to relieve anxiety.

Are you in pain? Mild achy pain occasionally in the lower chest. Sometimes, pain and numbness in the left big toe. Arthritis pains in upper arm after eating wheat products, red meat and dairy.

Can you sleep?: Yes.

Do you feel tired? Yes.

How often is your bowel movement? Difficult, constipated, with blood? 2 to 3 times daily, in small amounts each time. Usually formed or soft stools.

How is your appetite? Good appetite.

Any swelling? Where, give details? Swelling in the left epigastrium, liver area, 2 to 3 cm below ribcage on standing.

Do you have any other medical problems such as: gastric? Diabetes? High blood pressure? etc.

Gastric pain (moderate erosion), rheumatoid arthritis, Sjogren’s syndrome, anxiety, heart atrial ectopics, mild peripheral neuropathy. 

Urination: how frequent? Is it painful? Any blood? Normal, maybe once every 2 to 3 hours. Not painful. No blood.

Do you cough? If yes, any phlegm? Colour of phlegm (white/yellow), itchy throat?  Yes, on waking in the morning. Small amount of light yellow phlegm.

Do you have difficulty breathing? Elaborate. No, but feel breathless sometimes.

List and explain any other complaints. Main discomfort/suffering now is from dizziness when standing and walking – a sense of losing balance and a feeling of heaviness in the legs which makes walking difficult. This began in late Sep 2011, after taking some contaminated food and home-made chicken soup with red dates, goji and dang shen (I had been taking this soup regularly and it made me very alert, but had to stop taking meat soups since because they made me more giddy). It is not relieved by medication. Also sometimes feel hot and sweaty followed by increased dizziness. Body feels hot every morning on waking.

Hi Dr Chris Teo,

Wishing you a Happy Chinese New Year. I am YW, Dr W’s daughter (helping her to send this email). My mother hopes you can help in whatever way possible, even if just to prolong her days as she still has many important things to do.. She is unable to travel to Penang in her current state. Is it possible for us to talk on the phone or by email?

She had a PET scan last week and was quite disappointed with the results. (Especially when the “remote healing” practitioner had said everything was improving and the tumours had shrunk.) The cancer has spread to the left ureter, and periportal and portocaval nodes. FDG activity levels have also increased. The tumours in the liver have grown – the oncologist said one was 9 cm.

She is scheduled to start chemotherapy again tomorrow with 5FU, Oxaliplatin and Avastin, hoping it will work this time. We also hope your herbs can help, knowing that chemo is only a temporary measure. Looking forward to your reply. Much thanks. God bless.

Cancer case from Mongolia

Hi Dr Chris,

I recently went to Mongolia to visit a 27 year old lady who is suffering from a crushing disease called Paraplegic cancer.  Its basically a cancer that is at the throat area.  Her condition is severe and doctors have totally given up hope on her.  I do have a brief diagnosis of her illness and I would like to fax it to you to take a look if you don’t mind.  I will send you some pics of her too.  It is a very heart-breaking sight to see her suffering like that, but her spirit is still very strong and determined to live.  That’s why I feel very compelled to help her.  She has been bed-ridden for abt 7 years.  Everyone is just trying their best to lessen her pain.  Pls advice me if there is any way that your herbs can help her.  Thks so much for your help Dr Chris!

God Bless,

Reply: No, it is extremely difficult to help people from far away places.

Liver-Lung-Bone Cancer from Jakarta – come and see me, writing e-mail will not do!

Dear Dr. Chris,

My name is PK and I would like to ask you some questions regarding to my wife illness. My wife (named L, aged 50 years) has liver cancer and already spread to the back bone and a bit to the lung based on abdomen & thorax CT scans done in Nov. 2011 and biopsy also done in Dec 2011. Knowing the disease we are looking for medical treatment or herbal healing and fortunately my friend Mr. Tukiman recommended us to go to you or your representative in Jakarta, Mr. Teddy

After meeting him he gave my wife the herbal tea and she started taking the herbal as prescribed on the 23 December 2011; she took the herbal consistency and also very careful  the food she ate (totally vegetarian and no fried food or sugar as well) she also sleep at 9 pm and avoid stress, but until this day 27 January she is still complaining about the pain on her left legs (under legs) and also her upper thigh which make her difficult to walk.

And my questions are:
– How long would this herbal medicine took effect
– How do we monitor her disease,because up till now we did not go to  any doctor here.
– Is it necessary that we come to you for further observation or do you have any suggestion that we should do next.

Your early reply will be much appreciated thank you.

Reply: Trying to help people in front of a computer will not do. If you really want me to help your wife, come and see me with all her medical reports.
