Hi Everybody.  I haven't posted for a while but I am still following the BTD.  

The problem is with my husband, an O hunter.  He had been having some rectal bleeding which the doctor thought was hemorrhoids.  He scoped him and cauterized a rhoid but the bleeding did not stop so he did a colonoscopy and found a 2.7cm cancer at the top of his rectum. Other tests show it has not spread anywhere else and he is getting low dose chemotherapy 5FU 24 hours a day via a PIC line connected to a fannypack holding the pump. And they are radiating the tumor 5 days a week.  He is to do this for 6 weeks, then 6 weeks recovery time, then laproscopic surgery to remove about 8 inches of his colon and rectum.  This seems like overkill to me but everyone chooses their own treatment and the doctor told him this should take care of it for good. He just completed his first week with no side effects except a little fatigue but he is still working and then driving an hour each way for radiation every day so who wouldn't be tired.  

He has also been to see two ND's for support. On can do IV therapy.  He hasn't told us what that could be.  
They have him on:
Nanogreens
Inulin
Probiotics

I have him on Floradix to keep his RBC count up.  

He's taken arnica after they put the PIC line in and takes Nux Vomica when he gets home from treatment.  He's also on ionized water and I spray his back with 11.5 alkaline water to help prevent skin breakdown since another ND said it is good for any injury that has redness and swelling.  

One ND gave him a brief BTD page telling him to avoid all grains (which I have been trying to help him avoid for years So he is eating mostly Hunter compliant meat fruit and veggies.

I was hoping to refine his diet even more with the SWAMI program.  Can I use it for more that one person and does it have questions about whether you have cancer?  

I believe this cancer is environmental.  He was working in Portland, OR for the BIA (Bureau of Indian Affairs) last year and basically eating whatever he wanted cause I wasn't around and he traveled a lot for that job.  100% of the people who worked in his office have gotten cancer.  It is on the 8th floor and there was a huge microwave tower right outside his window!  They had an environmental hygiene team come in and surprise! they pronounced it safe!  He started the bleeding while working there but has recently transferred back to our home town thank goodness.  

Any suggestions and any input about Swami would be appreciated! Mostly I want to protect him form the effects of chemo and radiation.

Just in case you were not familiar with it, I thought I would mention the cancer book:

Thanks.   I thought about that but wondered if SWAMI would give even more specific information.

SWAMI will give you a more customized diet, if you put all the information in.

The professional version available to practitioners allows for entries about drugs currently taken and many other factors that cannot be input in the Xpress edition.

So you may want to consider it.

What the book does which the software does not do is explain the treatment process and nutritional approaches to combating cancer.

In the software you cannot tell whether a superfood is superfood because it will help you loose weight,  prevent coronary heart disease, or treat cancer.

Superfoods in the cancer book are superfoods for dealing with cancer.

The book also gives protocols for treating cancer, the software does not.

Hi Mrs. Rodgers,

Quoted from Mrs. Rodgers
Can I use it for more that one person
Swami is strictly personal.

Quoted from Mrs. Rodgers
and does it have questions about whether you have cancer?
It certainly does, and it gives you special Geno Harmonic Foods recommendations accordingly.

Quoted from Mrs. Rodgers
Mostly I want to protect him form the effects of chemo and radiation.
You'll find the protocols in the cancer book.

Good Luck

IFHI Masters run swami pros in their practices......

check the IFHI registry to find one possibly near you, or think of visiting Dr D himself at the shift......less cost than at his clinic directly.

Training in the use of the software and certification by the Institute for Human Individuality are both recommended before using the professional version.

The Xpress version is designed to be used without training on the software and the GenoType diet.

I am concerned about all he is getting.. If it is to late to make changes then dont read further as I do not wish to upset you..
mom had rectal cancer.. they operated immedictly  .. and then discovered other tumors in her colon..

then they operated on her colon and basically she was fine.. never needed chemo or anything else.. she was 80.. then ..

the issues I have is MY understanding that radiation might be ok as long as it is extreemly local .. but my issues is that I thought once they radiate the larger area then they can not really operate except to take it out.. meaning the area around is damaged to..  so for his rectum does he need to lose it?

taking out the tumor in my mind would have been quicker.. why did they not just remove it.. ?

he will need good rest to heal the scares..  so he will not make adhesion scar tissue after the operation.. drink much fluid at the beginning .. before and after surgery..

The cancer book for before and afterwards is a good thing IT is on easy read for your husband to learn what he can do and how he can help him self..

To bad he could not go to bridgeport before all the raduiation.. but then it takes much effort to make that decision.. .. .

ONE of the good things is a connection to  

http://www.caringbridge.org/visits

for communicating with others that will save you strength..

all the best.. (if you have personal questions feel free to email me.. )

my mom lived 11 years longer ..

This is to sad for all who work there and are getting ill.. I wonder how many people need to get ill before they close the office down..  


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

I already tried getting him to the BTD Clinic.  He is resistant to that so I am trying to do what he will accept.  But maybe I should go cause I'm sure he'll survive the cancer being an O and as an A I will just keel over from the stress!

IT IS IMporant to make Doctors do finger rectal exams for everybody as the colonosccopy may not detect any problems in the rectum..

"taking out the tumor in my mind would have been quicker.. why did they not just remove it.. ?"  (can't remember how to use the quote button)  

This is supposedly the new way to treat cancer.  Shrink the tumor and kill the cancer cells before cutting is supposed to be better.  Beats me why they are doing this.  I keep thinking thoughts like the economy is down and they need patients with good insurance!  His friend just had a cancerous colon tumor removed as your mother did without any other treatment and is cancer free a year later.

But he has made his decision. His doctor says rectal cancer is more serious than colon and yes he will be able to keep his rectum.

You are not upsetting me.  You have not brought up anything I have not been considering.  His choice is what is upsetting me and I just want to help him the best I can with this choice and try to accept his choice . He's already being radiated.

I was treated by a brilliant ND when I had cancer 20 years ago and what freaks me out is that he used to tell me it was very difficult to help people who had gone through chemo and radiation because it destroys their immune system. And I had a friend that went through all this and then kept getting infections and every time she was put on antibiotics her tumor markers shot back up, and they did more chemo until she died from heart failure, not cancer! Another side effect of chemo.  

So thanks for your support and also being concerned about all he is getting.

According to the Registry, there are 3 N.D.'s in Oregon who are licensed to use the SwamiPro.

When I went through cancer 8 or 9 years ago, I had chemo and radiation and worked with Dr. David Bove N.D. as an adjunct to the treatment.  I came through it fine, and with the strong support of Dr. D'Adamo' Cancer Book, I ate 100% superfoods and diamonds.  Later on, I followed only the genotype program.

It is possible to rebuild ones' health and immune system.  There are no simple answers when it comes to something like this.  Just support his choice and provide for the best possible foods and supplements.  Keep the home environment cheerful and optimistic.

Thank you for your balance Victoria, little miss B, and the link to the ND's.  I will try not to go down that worry path since it does no good anyway for either of us.

and here also check his feet and make sure he has no nail stuff going on.. or if he does then make him clean all he can to strentghten his immune system.. inside and out..from the bottom up..using oils if need be, as they clean the skin and under nails..

he will do fine as they are doing many such surgeries now a days..

but adherence to Super and Beneficials will make all the difference..

In the Encyclopedia, Dr. D recommends the following protocols for type O with colon cancer.  Perhaps they would be relevant in your husbands' case also:

Cancer Prevention
Chemotherapy Adjunct
Intestinal Health
Post Surgery
Chronic Illness Recovery

They would not be all followed at the same time, but as they become relevant in his own timing.
