Thanks Victoria for the reminder.  I have checked out the protocols and have my list and will be getting more good things for my hubby tomorrow. I have also ordered 2 SWAMI programs, Intrinsia and Dr. D's cancer book (after getting my daughter to sign up for shareright).

Thank you everybody for your support.  

We just went to the oncologist and my husbands red blood cell count was 47 when he started chemo (excellent for a guy who has had blood in his stool for months.  I do have him mostly on a hunter BTD.)  Anyway it dropped to 44 after a week of chemo and 2 long nose bleeds Sunday night so the Doc said we could shut off the chemo today, Wednesday, and resume it on Monday since the chemo is only to help the radiation target the tumor better, and no radiation over the holiday.  Who knew cancer takes the holidays off! He said they just left the 24hr IV on over the weekend (he is not radiated on the weekends) for convenience! Whose I wonder?  So I asked my husband to ask his doctor if they could train me to disconnect his chemo each weekend and his doctor agreed.  So that makes me feel batter and was a great relief to him. They showed me today and it is a piece of cake.  At least he gets a breather and I can work on building his blood over the 4 day weekend so hopefully it will not drop drastically this week. And he is going fishing and camping on Friday so being on the river should also be healing for him. BRRRRR.  Crazy Hunter!

I got the flax seed oil and organic cottage cheese today because they muscle tested extremely strong for him so I will add that to his support. Thank you so much for that suggestion Yaeli. He is  also now on turmetic and mixed E tocoperols and oryza tocotrienol from rice bran, all from a Japanese product which also tests extremely strong for him.

Curiously he tested strong for black walnut leaf tea before he started treatment but once he started chemo, he tested weak for it.  We will see this weekend if he needs it when the chemo is off.  Black walnut leaf tea is supposed to be good for the GI mucous membranes. I tested him for many of the suggestions on the protocols today and he didn't really need them but maybe later.

Tonight he enjoyed baked brie with apple slices, turkey soup with just turkey and veggies, portabella mushrooms sauteed with garlic and lots of ghee,and red wine.  We were happy campers in spite of what is going on!  

Thank you for all your suggestions prayers and hugs.  They have truly helped me to find what he needs and keep my balance.

Love,
Diane

and add some salvestroles as well... about 2-4'ooo units daily.. wish you all the best ...greetings from Switzerland


Thank you for this fascinating suggestion Amazon.  I googled salvestroles and it makes so much sense so I went out to my garden and picked the bug chewed on swiss chard for dinner! Tomorrow the chewed on beets! I forgot to look for salvestroles today but will be eating more organic and seeing if I can find some in a bottle to test soon.

Quoted from Ribbit
Mrs. Rodgers!  I've missed you!  Wow, it's been a long time.  I'm so sorry to hear about everything that's been going on.


Thanks Ribbit.  I was thinking that I quit posting when the genotype book came out and I decided not to buy into that new site. Looks like the genotypes and Swamis are posting here now.

SWAMI typed me as an Explorer! and my hubby as a Gatherer (61%!)  I think it nailed him since he was scrawny when I met him at 21 years old and right after that he started gaining weight. I never understood that until now, that Gathers often don't put on weight until they stop growing.

Week 4 of chemo and radiation completed.  Two more weeks to go.  

Everyone's suggestions and the genotype diet appear to be helping. He is still working and recreating. His ND took him totally off grains and he is really sticking to that.  He skipped two mornings of his supplements (late for work) and it kicked his butt! I told him I guess he had to learn how much they were helping.  He has actually gained weight during his chemo and radiation!  His appetite remains good. I encourage him to eat. He said he never thought he would hear me saying that.  He gets tired but who wouldn't?

The skin on his scrotum has darkened from the radiation. Sometimes reddened. A little itching too but he does a sitz bath in 11.5 alkaline restructered water (high in antioxidants) and that brings relief. (He also rinses his mouth with this water and any sores are gone the next day.) This is the time skin breakdown occurs with radiation so I am just praying that we can keep that to a minimum.

He had some diarrhea and the diet they gave him to prevent diarrhea was atrocious.  White bread, pudding, no fresh fruit or vegetables except iceberg lettuce.  It went in the trash.  He took some antidiarrheal meds and he said the constipation was worse that a little bit of diarrhea! We don't want to stop any detox unless we have to if his rectum gets irritated but so far so good.  

I am more at peace about his choices but sometimes when I go with him on his appointments it seems like cancer is everywhere.  It's creepy. People drinking soda and eating cookies as they get their chemo! My friend said the doctor probably prescribed the soda for them. (You see why she is my friend!) Lots of B12 has given me more energy and a better attitude.  

And Ribbit, to keep my hand in the baby business, I was my niece's doula last month and we had a beautiful natural birth at the hospital.  A long latent phase, dilation finally (most of the time spent in the tub) with no meds and 4 hours of pushing!  Whew! But Hazel came out wide eyed and went straight to the breast and is doing beautifully.  And my niece is very empowered but thinking Hazel may be an only child!  

Two days later my daughter's friend called saying she was in labor.  Another long difficult labor with a posterior baby.  She also labored in the tub without meds.  Finally, baby turned, she was complete and the hospital midwife told her to get out of the tub to have the baby but she yelled "NO! SHE'S COMING" and there she was! A beautiful hospital waterbirth!  The nurse turned to me and said, "So much for waterbirths not being allowed at this hospital."   The miracle of life goes on.

So glad things are going as well as they are...
Had to smile at one part of your post though...
"...he does a sitz bath in 11.5 alkaline restructered water (high in antioxidants) and that brings relief. (He also rinses his mouth with this water* and any sores are gone the next day.)" *Hopefully not with the bath water
If this is in poor taste I apologise & will delete...

"Poor taste."  

Mrs. Rodgers, that's such a great story!  It's normal to feel like you only want one when that one is so little and demanding.  It takes me a full year or more to start thinking about another one.  I had my fourth baby (at home) last August.  She's toddling around everywhere now and is such a joy.  One of my goals is to eventually be a postpartum doula.  I'd be there for the birth too, of course, but I very firmly believe that some of the postpartum depression in this country is caused from over-work and lack of help in those early weeks and months.  It's too much to do--keeping up with house, chores, cooking and other children when all you want to do is curl up with your new baby and sleep!  And that's where a new mother should be--in bed!  And yet, with the way our culture is set up, it's impossible to do that.  I'll get off my soap box now.

Congratulations on your fourth! I'm with you Ribbet.  Home birth is the way to go.  It was so annoying trying to keep all the drugs and IV's and monitors away from these girls.  And they tried to tell my niece her nipples were too small and she needed a nipple shield.  

Postpartum doula work is rewarding but the effects of the epidurals just follows them home with sucking problems. I think that makes having help even more crucial.

Cancer update.  My husbands blood count today was good which puzzled his doctor.    Gayle just told him I had him on all kinds of supplements and he was eating good.  Also the doctor said his mouth looked good too.

Thank you for your positive thoughts Stefina.  

Cancer Update:

Week five is completed and we are on the last week of chemo and radiation.  Only 4 more days. My husband"s appetite is still good, still no skin breakdown from the radiation and his mucous membranes in his mouth are pretty good. Lots of good Gatherer foods, antioxidants and alkaline water are saving his butt literally.

I appreciate what Dr. D says in his cancer book regarding antioxidants:  

"In fact, antioxidants not only protect healthy cells during chemotherapy and radiation treatment, they also seem to increase the rate of cancer cell destruction.  Recent studies confirm that people using antioxidants during cancer treatments have better survival rates."  

Thank you Dr. D'Adamo.  Although a visit to you would have been ideal, having your book, NAP products, SWAMI program and this forum has been a gift of great value and is very much appreciated.

Love,
Diane

this is a little late but i understand why they do the broad range stuff as aposed to "just cutting it out" cancer cells are a bit like a rotten apple in your bag of apples. yes you can just take the one out and every thing might be fine...but what about the other apples it was toutching? wash them and they will be fine leave them be and you may have another rotten apple tomarrow. they have not found a better way of "washing" the cells than chemo and radiation so those are the tools they use. i hope they find something better myself.


nothing to do? who has that!?
