NPC-Liver: Chemo and Radiation Did Not Cure

Dear Professor Chris,

I’m writing to you regarding my father who is unable to articulate in English to enquire about your healing herbs that could possibly lighten his pain or increase his life expectancy.

My father is 53 and was diagnosed with stage 4 NPC May 2015. He was asked to go through 6 sessions of Chemotherapy and 33 sessions of Radiotherapy which he complied and was making recovery.

December 2015 he went for a scan and there the results was Liver Metastasis although his nose and lymph nodes were cleared.

We turned to Chinese medication for treatment in hopes for containing and maintaining his body and a longer life expectancy as he could not go for another round of chemo and radio session. Late February he went for a test again and the mass in his liver had grown. I’ve attached a photo of his latest CT scan.

I seek your advice and if CA therapy can help him. I really do not want him to give up any chances that could improve his life expectancy. Of late, he’s having pains within his stomach area (no visible swollen area noticed), the pain area moves around so I am not sure which portion is painful to him.

Thank you very much, for taking time to read and reply. I appreciate it.  Best Regards.

Nose Cancer: Radiation, Chemo and chemo – did not work

Dear Chris,

Your centre was recommended to me quite some years back by our  pastor D.

Patient Age 57

First diagnosed : 2003 NPC stage 1 – Treated with radiation only

About 1 plus later year – Relapsed – Treated with both radiation and chemo

Few years later : relapsed – Again treated with radiation and chemo

Last year June 2014: Tumor remained sighted in PET – so chemo again + Oral ones T1

5 mths later Nove 2014 : Re-took PET. Tumor size increased. – Tried a new chemo method (Bio something – apparently to aid to block blood flow to feed tumor area or sth like that.)

Since Nov 2014, patient was already experiencing  pain and discomfort in the ear and head area. She just about to complete her 3rd chemo cycle as this email stands . Once chemo cycle is about 2 courses (one per week). But with the increasing pain she is having, she is now thinking of giving up chemo. Will be seeing the oncologist next Tue 20/1 on this.

In the meantime, yesterday 17/1, she went to see her ENT. This was his comments:-

We saw her ENT this morning. His view of pet scan

  1. Recurrent uptake. Stage 4. But may or may not be cancerous.
  2. No need of biopsy due to the depth of that tumor.
  3. Tumor spread gone into bone area. High suspect. And sitting on 5th nerve. Which cause her facial muscle jaw pain.
  4. recommended her to see radioonco to discus poss of targeted dosage to halt kill that growing tumor. (notwithstanding that she already had her max of 2 radiation)
  5. Rec her to change her painkiller drug to lycril instead of tremidol which is more effective in 5th nerve pain mgt with less side effects on face . And perhaps increase dosage if she still cannot handle the pain.
  6. He would rec her to a pain specialist if Nec.

She will be consulting her medical onco next tue – to propose stopping chemo and seek her opinion on the ENT’s proposal to consult the radioonco with regard to the targetted dose of radiation on the growing tumor.

Background of patient: She is a firm believer of TCM. Had been seeing TCM for post NPC since 2004. Has been very careful on her diet as well.

I have not mooted the idea of asking her to go to Penang as yet.(as she is pretty tired now) Like to ask you for some info:-

  1. Have you seen such cases described above improved at your centre ever?
  2. Understand that you have a pain qi assessment method at your centre to prescribed the herbs.  Having described of patient’s condition rather in detailed (I hope) , do you have any particular herbs that may be able alleviate her pain and discomfort?

Appreciate your time on this email.  If nec, from your experience that herbs might help, I am prepared to courier them her to s’pore for her.

Hope to hear from you. Many thanks!

Reply: It is not my nature to play god and make promises. Why not just let the doctors take care of her.


I have no cure for your mother’s cancer

Hi  Chris,

Hope this email finds you well.  My mother is diagnosed with stage 4 nose cancer, and
she’s now contemplating either to go for the standard Chemo + Radiotherapy or Trying herbs.

I checked your website out and find it very promising, but need to convince my mother. Could I check with you if you have an indication and database of how many people with NPC by stages who took
your   herbs and were successfully cured. This will greatly help me convince her.

Many thanks,

 Reply:  No…I think it is better you go  for medical treatment.

Hi Chris,

But I saw your website there are some cases of NPC which  they approach you and took your medication. What about those cases? Are there more successful cases of NPC being cured by your herbs?  I thought you’re almost against Western medical  treatment? Why are you telling me to seek other medical  treatment?

Reply:  Honest and frank ..I cannot cure  any cancer and no one on earth can cure any cancer either. Those who can have access to medical treatment …go ahead  and those who fail, can come to me.

Hi Chris,
Thanks for your very frank answer.

NPC from Sabah: Onco gave up?

Good day to you Prof,

For your information my husband was diagnosed NPC stage 4 on January 2013. He took 3 cycle of chemotherapy and the tumor had shrunk. He refused radiotherapy because many people told him that the side effects of RT is bizarre. He finished the 3 cycle chemo on April 2013.

By end of July 2013, there was a lump on his neck and we decided to ct scan again. The result was the tumor was metastasis and need immediate treatment. We went to private hospital since we were rejected by oncologist at general Hospital regarding our reluctant of RT last April.

Thus my husband received treatment starting with chemotherapy and 35 time RT. He finished his treatment on 21st November 2013.

On March 2014, We do CT Scan again and it shows that the tumor was gone. His nose and neck is clear. We were very happy that time.

But it was just the beginning of my husband illness. On that month, he claimed pain on his hips and leg…the pain come and go…we went for xray and ultrasound of his abdomen and everything is normal.

Then again, on end of May 2014 he was admitted to hospital because of anemia…from that day he always anemia even though he had blood transfusion.

Last week doctor arranged him for Bone Marrow Aspiration and the result is there are NPC Metastatic on his bone.

Now the oncologist give us 2 options : Chemo or Go Home and wait.

For your information my husband weight before all the treatment was 82kg and now he only 42kg.

I believe we were chosen to faced this and i believed in God miracle. I pray for God show us the way.

I googled about bone mets and i found your website.

We discussed and we hope we can fly to Penang and meet you for consultations and medications. But time is very limited to us

My husband chose to do the chemotherapy but he afraid if he is not strong enough to go through it. The chemo will be start next Tuesday.

I hope Doctor can give us second opinion about this matter.

Thank you in advance doctor.

Reply: if the past chemo and radiation treatment did not cure him …what make you think this time around it is going to cure you?

Now he admitted to hospital due to his low red blood and platelet..he is receiving blood and platelet transfusion..he went to his 1st palliative chemo last Tuesday..but this morning the onco suggest us go home and the no need chemo anymore.

I really want to bring him to ca care..we know there is no cure for his illness..I’m waiting for his blood stable and then decide when we can meet you.

But can you estimate the cost so that i can tell the family and discuss how to bear the cost later.

By the way..thanks for replying us.

NPC from Melaka

Dear Dr. Chris,

Good day to you. I’m from Melaka and am suspected to have Nasopharyngeal cancer (still waiting for biopsy report as of writing this email after performing it yesterday) – big lump on the left side of the neck and some lumps on the right.

I would like to enquire if you would be available this Friday (20/6) or Sunday (22/6) as I will be going up to Penang on Friday for your consultation. Other than that, what else I have to prepare before meeting you for the consultation? Thanks in advance.

Thank you Dr. Chris, Will meet up with them as advised and then try to meet up with you this Friday if possible. Thanks again.

Reply: Get your biopsy result first, then .go and see the oncologist. See what they can do for you …after seeing all the doctors…then come and see for a final decision.

NPC from Australia

Dear Dr. Teo,

My name is N, living in Sydney, Australia.  I’ve got your website through search engine and email address from your website. I am also reading one of your books, ‘Cancer Yet They Live’.

I’ve diagnosed with NPC Stage 4 (T3N2M0) on Aug, 2011. I’ve small little lump in my right neck underneath the ear. I’ve waited for a week and then see the family doctor. the doctor asked me to do the biopsy and then I got the result “non differentiated carcinoma”. I was treated with Chemo (5FU + Cisplatin) and 35 Radiation sessions. My treatment ended on 15 Dec 2011 and continue to monitor up to now.

Even though treatment finished, I’ve problem with side effects as usual. To name a few, dry mouth, no taste, hearing loss and ringing in the ear .. etc. Last 2 weeks ago, when I attended the regular check up the doctor noticed that my tongue is pointed to right side when is out. My oncologist ordered MRI and turned out that my cancer is back. To confirm, she asked me to check with PET scan that lights up and involved lymph nodes as well.

I have detail treatment plan from the oncologist. She did mentioned before that the tumor location was at the back of the nose so operation is impossible as well as radiation this time. My only option is chemo (Carboplatin + Fluorouracil) which is going to start in next 3 weeks time. This treatment cycle is repeated every 28 days for a total of 4 to 6 times.

Looking at your sites, reading stories, books and videos, I’ve decided to contact you for the further consultation. I do believe in herbal medicine and strength they possess.

I’ve booked for the ticket tonight and see you tomorrow.

Reply: Don’t just write email, come if you think we can help you! That’s the way to go!

From Sibu: NPC – Bone Cancer: Chemo and radiotherapy did not help

Dear Dr. Chris,

My Brother was diagnosed with NPC in December 2012 and completed 3 chemo cycles in 18 of Feb this year and he suffered a little pain on the abdomen and back. Doctor recommends him to have 33 cycles of radiotherapy (every week of 4 days radiotherapy and one day of chemo (1 hour dripping) and radiotherapy).

After the 10 cycles of radiotherapy he feels more pain on the abdomen and back, no appetite and can’t sleep at night. His weight is dropping from 78kg to 72kg within 2 weeks.The whole body with no energy at all. Doc advice to have bone scan and confirmed the cancer cells has spread mainly to the bone as on a stage 4 of NPC.

Doc recommended another 5 cycles of radiotherapy on the chest area. We can see that he have no more energy to complete the radio and chemotherapy. We do not want him to go through this suffering anymore.

This few days he can’t take any solid food and just can take the juice and plain water, the pain was go through from his waist until the whole leg and foot. He becomes anxious and depressed.

Dr. Christ can you help and guide us what to do. We are from Sibu Sarawak. Your kind of attention is very much appreciated. Thank you ! God Bless You !


Good morning Dr Teo,

We will arrange to fly over to Penang on 4/4/2013 Thursday morning at 9.35am arrive at 11.35am. According to your consultation time is on Friday and Sunday only. So do we need to wait until Friday to meet you?

Kindly let us know that which Apartment or Home stay recommended from your website which is near to your Centre. As we plan to stay for about 2 weeks in order for my brother to have your treatment.

Your kind of help is very much appreciated. Thank you!

Reply: This is NOT the correct thing to do. There is NO need to stay for 2 weeks. There is nothing much I can do.

1. You come here and I see all the medical reports.

2. I prescribe the herbs and you go home.

At most the visit is only for 1 or 2 hours then you go home. If the patient is sick or difficult to walk.no need to bring the patient. Only the person who takes care of him come and see me.

So you only need to stay here for one night at most. Even if you stay for 2 weeks, there is nothing I can do to help you because the herbs take time to heal. Chris.

Comment: Please note that we are not a hospital.

Nose Cancer (NPC): Chemo and Radiation Did NOT Cure Him – Recurrence to Liver and Lung

Dear Dr Chris,

My husband was diagnosed with NPC in late 2008 and completed 33 radio and 6 chemo cycles in April 2009 and was in remission. He had been seeing a TCM since the completion of the treatment in April 2009 till to date.

In July 2012, it was discovered that it had spread mainly to the liver and a little to the lungs. He completed 6 cycles of chemo in November and CT scan on 5 December 2012 pronounced that the tumours were stable.

Yesterday, 19 February 2013, the CT scan revealed that new lesions on the liver were found and old lesions were bigger. Doc recommends another 6 cycles of chemo and probably oral medication to maintain after that.

Presently, he feels a little bloated in the tummy after eating, a little aches and pain on the abdomen and back. Appetite and sleep are generally normal. Energy level a little low these few weeks as compared to January. Attached are his CT Scans and Blood Tests results.

We are from Singapore and thinking of flying up on Sun 3 March.


Thank you and God bless. Regards,

Nose Cancer (NPC): Chemo and Radiation Did Not Cure – More Radiation Needed!

Dear Dr Chris,

I am 59 years old. I was referred to you by a friend who has survived cancer with your treatment.

I was diagnosed with stage 3 nasal cancer (NPC) in Jan 2011.  I had 4 rounds of chemo and 35 cycles of radiotherapy and completed my treatment on 1 April 2011. In May 2012, a PET scan showed that the tumor had recurred.

Rather reluctantly, I then had another 5 rounds of chemo, the last one was on 29 Oct, 2012. On 3 Jan 2013, I had another scan done and it showed that 80 per cent of the tumor was gone.  Now the oncologist has recommended that I go through another 30 cycles of radiotherapy to get rid of the residual cells. I do not want to go through it as I am still suffering from the effects of my last radiation.  In fact, if I had known of you earlier, I wouldn’t have gone through the 5 rounds of chemo.

Thank you for your kind attention and I look forward to hearing from you.


NPC from Seremban

Dear Chris,

Two days ago I was diagnosed with NPC by a doctor in a Medical Centre without giving me any report after waiting for two weeks. He asked me to take up radio/chemo treatments even without a written report! He also couldn’t precisely tell me what stage I am.

I have my MRI results and all symptoms of NPC (double vision, lump on neck which by now already diminished, discharge from my left ear which have now stopped probably due to taking some natural herbs for the past two weeks, pressure on the head etc).

I am from Seremban and I intend to visit you tomorrow (Sunday 23/9/12). Do let me know if I should come over to meet you.

Thank you. Regards, C

Another Case: Hoping for a cure with Sabah Snake Grass

17 June 2012

Dear Dr.,

My husband is treating himself with Sabah Snake Grass (plus vegetable and fruit base diet). He is losing weight now.

Going into three weeks, he said he started to feel the pain which he didn’t formerly.

My questions:

Is that the sign of healing process?

Is he developing his immune system by then?

Is it okay for him to experience that pain?

I do not want him to lose hope and give up the mother nature treatment. I would like to get some opinions from you. Thank you.

23 May 2012

Dear, Dr. Chris,My husband is just diagnosed with NPC. He has decided to take the alternative treatment.  We are having travelling problems due to the financial commitments.  Apart from the business debts, my children studies are next in the list.  How I wish I could go to you from Melaka.

We do not want to lose him because of the killing therapy offered from the oncologist and the insurance company. What more when he has witnessed his two brother in-laws died of the same therapy due to leukemia and nerve cancer (which I’m not sure what the scientific name for it). In fact the leukemia patient passed away before his very own eyes.

His father too, does not want him to go for that treatment. He said, enough is enough, he has lost his two son in-laws too soon because of chemo and do not want to lose his only son the same way. I was truly touched by his fatherly tears very early in the morning.  The five children especially the youngest and only son also still need the father to be with them along the way developing their own lives. Of course, I want my husband for his caring and love. He is my source of strength.

Is there in any way that I could do home treatment for my husband? (To start with, we are changing our diet-eliminating farm and dairy product. Going for only vegetables and fruits). Attached are some of the documents you might be interested to see and recommend me what to do next.  I’m still on my way reading your Cancer war book.

Thank you. I am very sure Allah blesses you for all you have done, doing and will do for the needy.

M, Melaka.

NPC Stage 3 cured? Beware take it easy! It may come back.

Dear Professor Teo

Thank you very much for turning my medical condition around!

Tried calling you to break the good news, but cannot get thru la.  I managed to share with Mr Lee, and he is so happy for me.

See you in May.

NPC – After all the treatments, the doctor has medically written him off

Hi Chris,

Got to know about CA care from the website, we are very interested to know more about this CA treatment. Currently, my brother is 40 years old and is suffering for nose cancer relapse. This is the third time and is more serious than ever.

He has a tumor in his right nose and it is growing and is affecting his right eye, thus he’s having double vision. Now his left eye also seem to be having some vision problems.

A short summary:

2002 – diagnosed with and treated for nose cancer (radiotherapy only)

Around 2007 – first relapse (radiotherapy only)

2008 to 2009 – second relapse (radiotherapy only)

2010 to 11 – third relapse (radiotherapy, brachytherapy, chemo not completed and a surgery  to remove the tumor but it grew back)

The tumor has been growing bigger since late last year and has pressed on his sixth nerve, 2 or 3 weeks ago, thus giving him double vision. Doctor said right eye is paralysed.

His doctor does not recommend radiotherapy anymore and he is not on any Western medication / treatment. Currently, he is taking some Chinese medicine but he has difficulty in swallowing. His throat is affected due to ulcers from radiotherapy. He has not been able to sleep for months as he has been coughing badly. He can’t lie on the bed as it will trigger off even more coughing so he has to catch his sleep in an upright position. He is very weak now and left with only 43 kg (from 65kg).

The doctor has medically written him off and told him his days are numbered.

What will you recommend or advise? Thanks to advise at your soonest possible time.

Reply: Where are you from anyway? Come and see me if you think I can help you.
