I have been very pale looking since the last blood vomiting episode. Yesterday morning, I was not only pale all over, I felt energyless, especially on my feet. I was feeling very tired and at the same time, I can't even lie down to sleep. My mother recommended that I take beetroot soup (not raw beetroot but the dried version that you can buy in Chinese medical halls). Everytime when my mother has internal heat problem, she would drink the soup and she tells me it worked all the time. Research found that the red coloring matter of beetroots contain anti-carcinogens and can increase the uptake of oxygen by as much as 400 percent. This helps fight against cancer and increase our cardiovascular activities. In TCM, beetroots can nourish the blood and bring down internal heat. Within 10 minutes of drinking the beetroot soup, the internal heat subsided and I managed to take a 2 hour nap. I felt much better when I got up just before lunch.
I am still very tired and any sleep lost cannot be catched up. Still, I will try to sleep with every available opportunity. My neck and shoulder has become very stiffed. Yesterday, I continued my second day bathing with cold water. This time, I managed much better than previously despite a slight drizzle outside. My internal heat seems to be reducing and I feel very much better now physiologically.
Sabah Snake Grass (SSG) Revisited
Recently I have been receiving lot of emails about SSG and a reader of this blog, Swee Seng emailed me and said how her mother's cancer after taking SSG is fine now. She also introduced a SSG grower, a Mr. Ng to me and I took the opportunity to go for a fact finding mission yesterday evening. When I was almost about to reach Mr Ng's home, my car overheated due to a leaking radiator. I have to abandoned my car by the roadside and then walk for a kilometer to Mr. Ng's house. Later, I arranged for a tow truck to tow the car back to the workshop. It's was a long but fruitful night for me.
|Taste||A little sweet taste||Very bitter taste|
|Side Effects||Lung cancer patients may experience nausea||Backache|
|Efficacy||Effective against cancer as reported by patients||Not known (but my own trial shows it's not effective. It is not possible to increase the dosage to say 100 leafs per blending as it becomes too bitter and you get a very bad backache)|
Mr. Ng grows the SSG in his garden and currently supplies to about 30 cancer patients. According to him, ALL patients reported improvements and some even show tumors disappearing as early as 2 weeks of consumption. For more serious cases, he said it may take about 4 weeks. Mr. Ng not only gives away SSG for free, he also give the patients tree stocks so that they can grow on their own and become self sufficient as part of his charity work. People who did not do chemotherapy would respond very well.
He later said I looked normal and examined my hands. He saw some yellowish skin and I assured him that this is due to the carrot juices that I have been drinking over the past 21 months and not due to liver tumor. My November CT 2010 scan showed no liver metastasis. He even said for me, I think in one month if you take SSG, you will be clear and urged me to try. I am the first person he met with kidney cancer, so he has no past results to share. Anyway he gave me a few days supply and gave me the dosage to take. Apparently, he give different dosage to patients depending on their condition.
He also seems well read about certain alternative therapies and we talk about a few of them. One of the therapy caught my attention. He suggested for tumors with masses like kidney cancer, much of the mass is made up of calcium. As such an alkaline environment would not be able to shrink the tumor mass. Instead the the environment should be acidic so that the acid can dissolve the calcium. He read about it in a book. This is something new to me and I would want to research more on what he said.
The reason why I am revisiting this therapy is I have also been asked about this therapy for which I have no experience. I would direct them to someone else who has experiences with SSG and also sells SSG. I have no financial interest when I do referrals. The other reason is for overseas readers. I would like them to know about SSG. SSG is grown in other parts of Asia as well but Malaysia seems to have a database of successful patients that you can check out. This therapy can also be supplement to other therapies (but not TCM and some exceptions) so you can still try without giving up your present therapy.
