Health Status @ 22 January 2011

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. Confirmed that it has not spread to the live. All other organs are also normal.

Latest scan on 26 November 2010 showed slight improvement in the kidney tumor (shrunk from 15cm to 11.4cm) but the nodes on the lungs were also a little larger. In the August 2010 scan, it was the other way around.

X-rays scan on 26 September 2010 over the scapula (the bone of the shoulder), pelvic and upper back areas shows no obvious bony metastasis.

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

I have so far rejected the recommendation.

a. Gerson Therapy
a1. Coffee Enema
Following Gerson Clinic's recommendation of three enema daily and alternative day castor oil enema. Due to the strength of the coffee, my enema formula is 4oz coffee, 8oz camomile and 12oz of water.

a2. Nutrition Diet
All fruits and vegetables mentioned are organic.
i. Juicing - 13 fruit and vegetables juices a day beginning around 8am and ending 7pm. 1 orange, 5 apple+carrot, 3 carrot and 4 green vegetable juices every hourly.
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 (once a week) is consumed. Hippocrates soup are also prepared every other day for daily consumption.
3. Supplements - K-salt, niacin, lugol solution, pancreatin, pepsin, Q10, Inflamezyme, Milk Tistle, Colostrum. Thyroid, Liver and B12 injections daily.
4. Others - Rye bread, papaya, guavas, oranges and bananas are consumed at regular intervals.

b. Homeopathy Medicine

d. Oxygen Therapy
Started using a personal oxygen generator with effect from 8 March 2010 about 1 hour in the evening, 20 minutes per session. Richer oxygen does help in controlling the growth of the tumors. It also reduces fatigue.

e. Zhineng Qigong
Started practicing qigong on 11 March 2010. Attend classes five times a week from 6.30am to 8am. As the time clashes with my therapy time, I have two choices, either I join another group or practice on my own.

Health Status
It's just over a month since I came back from USA/Mexico. I had my blood test today and will know the results in Monday or Tuesday after which I will contact my doctor in Gerson Clinic for consultation to see if I need to modify my therapy.

I now weigh 62kgs, a drop of 3kgs in just about a month, the most severe that I experienced to date. I have not been eating as much as before but it looks like I need to find a way to gain back some weight. I have been thinking of introducing some protein into my diet and will consult my doctor on this matter.

I do not know what to make of the loss in weight but I think it may have to do with my tiredness and also not eating well or other negative reasons. I am now finding it more difficult to sit as I think most of my weight loss occured on my buttocks and thighs.

Now, my motto is, I just do my very best. That's it.

Notwithstanding the developments, quite a good week.


  1. Hey CT. I just wanted to let you know that I am thinking about you and hoping you'll be feeling better soon.

    I've been reading about Qigong from a book that a friend lent to me. I think it's something I may do... if I can find time between all the juicing and enemas :)

  2. Thanks and over here, I have also been thinking about you (and the others too). I hope you have made good progress.

    Yes, I am practicing a form of qigong called "Chi Lei" since March last year. I have stopped temporary for the time being. If I cannot join back the morning classes, I though I would practice on my own.
