Health Status @ 16 October 2010

Optimism is essential to achievement and it is also the foundation of courage and true progress.
Nicholas Murray Butler

New information are presented in italics.

Tumor mass of size of about 15cm on the right kidney and 21 and 20 nodes all over my left and right lungs respectively with one up to 3cm in size on both lungs. Possibly also spread to the liver.

Latest scan on 26 August 2010 showed slight improvement and the bigger nodes in my lungs are now smaller. However, the kidney tumor has grown slightly bigger to 15cm.

Consulted four urologists (one in Singapore and three in Malaysia) and two oncologists (one in Malaysia and one in Singapore). Both oncologists suggested removal of right kidney. Singapore urologist also suggested removal of kidney. The three urologists do not recommend surgery or chemotherapy. The last urologist consulted said most of his patients died within six months of surgery while two on the expensive (RM20K per month) drug Sutent is not responding. All agree that is no cure for the moment.

My urologist said my cancer is at stage 4 and did not recommend me to take any treatment. It is also my own choice not to take conventional treatment after considering all the facts of the case.

Subsequently during the 1 year review on 2 September 2010, my oncologist in Singapore recommended that I consider:

a. Tumor debulk and
b. Sutent medication or
c. Interferon treatment

a. Modified Gerson Therapy
a1. Coffee Enema
Initially, four times a day for four weeks, every four hours apart. Currently three times a day in the morning, afternoon and evening for 15 minutes. Commence castor oil enema from 23 January 2010.

a2. Nutrition Diet
All fruits and vegetables mentioned are organic.
i. Juicing - 11 fruit and vegetables juices a day beginning around 7am and ending 7pm. 5 apple+carrot, 2 carrot and 4 green vegetable juices every hourly. Liver supplements are taken together with carrot juices. Added snake plant leaves to carrot+apple juices.
2. Diet - No oil, no sugar and no salt on all cooking. For breakfast and supper, mainly oats with some raisins, sometimes a little Manuka honey is added. For lunch and dinner, vegetables such as Siew Pak Choy, Lettuce, lady's fingers, cauliflower, broccoli and spinach are mainly steamed or boiled. K-salt is added for flavoring. A teaspoon of flaxseed oil is added when serving (but not during cooking). Mainly boiled potatoes and sometimes Somali organic brown rice is consumed. Hippocrates soup are also prepared every other day for daily consumption.
3. Supplements - K-salt, B12, niacin, lugol solution, pancreatin, pepsin and Q10.
4. Others - Rye bread, papaya, guavas, oranges and bananas are consumed at regular intervals.

d. Oxygen Therapy

Health Status
Currently weighs 65.9kgs, a decrease of 1.1kg compared to last week. Midweek, I lost about 0.5kg. Looks like I just have to continue with project "Eat More". My only complain so far is my buttocks. The weight loss has caused me to lose more muscles making it difficult for me to sit. Otherwise, I feel good.

Started the hypnotherapy last Tuesday and had a good first session. My hypnotherapist has given me a script and also a mp3 voice script to help me into the process of relaxation. Will be trying out this weekend. My existing MP3 player (my 3rd todate) just went kaputt, so I will buying a replacement.

A good but tyring week.



  2. Thank you for your recommendation of the product.

    I visited the website and indeed the claims of cancer reduction is impressive. However, it's not back up by any evidence or it there any statistical evidence of its claimed effectiveness.

    Nevertheless, I thank you for your good intention.

  3. Since it's in KL,Sentul,hope you can verify the claim,my sister got breast cancer and i'm very very sad now,following your blog for the last 2 days indeed very encouraging,you are very strong and very positive looking at life..for me i couldn't take it. Reading your blog really makes me sad and shed tears i couldn't sleep for the last 2 nights..btw i'm from Sabah,i have call up the company,and referred me to a dr call dr omar,it cost rm5000 for 15 tablets..once a day..he told me it's a secret discovery by his research team that he intend to let the news out during dr conferences next month..we are not rich couldn't afford it,even if i wnated to i have to sell my house. As you know there're lots of scam now happening in our country.
    Thanks for your encouragement in fighting life,i don't know if my emglish is right,but i do hope there're miracles out there,keep praying and my prayers with you also.

  4. Dear Eric,

    Firstly thank you for visiting and commenting my blog.

    This first thing you should let you sister know is that life in NOT UNFAIR even if you get cancer. This is because there are thousands more people out there (even though have no cancer) lives a more difficult live than cancer patients. Cancer is not a death sentence.

    Since you are based in KK, you may want to check on Newlife International, KK to buy the Gerson Therapy book to understand more about cancers and whether the therapy is suitable for your sister or not. I wish I am in KK to come over to offer you some support. Please write ( to me and I see if I can help you out.

    My personal view is this, THERE IS NO MIRACLE DRUG. Anything that claims to be miracle, please be very careful expecially when it costs lots of money. Best not to touch it.

    Do not engage in self pity because it does not bring any good to you or your sister. Instead use the energy to focus on what you can do. Find someone you can talk to or if you need, you can also write to me. Many breast cancer patients has been healed and so can your sister. Even concentional medicine has shown good success rate.
