I am 2A, 3.5mm with a high mitosis,and am looking at alternatives does anyone have experiance with IAT in the bahamas, are going to a raw or macrobiotic diet, also looking at Qigong, and ozone /oxygen therapy. Trying to find a path to follow and then enjoy my life. Thanks for any feedback.BBall

Hi bball,

I did a serious macrobiotic diet for two years after brain mets.  got away from it for awhile , went back to it, away from it and now back on it, but not like I was.  I swear by the diet or we should say WAY OF LIFE.  it is a life change I had dedicated myself to.  The first five to six weeks,  was amazing how the toxins were being excreeted from my body.. including through the skin , my face broke out,  beath was horrendous  and on and on.  After the six weeks I have to say I NEVER EVER LOOKED OR FELT BETTER IN MY LIFE..  I NEVER HAD A FOOD CRAVING.. If you decide to go this route I suggest finding a GOOD macrobiotic counselor... I love mine.  he also tells me what supplements I should take based on my body. 

I know someone who just came back from Hippocrates.  I know numerous people who have been there and they all swear by it.  I have never heard a bad thing about them.

I was going to go to Finland many years ago for the hyperbarrick chanmber  treatment( one thing since my brain met I forget words) .  I know someone who is in Switzerland for the treatment now and having a very positive experience. 

 

If you have any further qiestions please e mail me at   MelanomaHelp@aol.com

I hope this helps.

Love and Light

Carole

Hi bball.

I would certainly do whatever you can to improve your immune system.

Eat really healthy, get enough sleep, and do whatever you can to minimize stress.

I got back to my church, do massage once per week, do reiki when I can, work out, etc.

As for HIPPOCRATES....I've been to the one in Florida. I got some good out of it but I didn't trust a few people there.

"Dr" Brian Clement referred to vitamin C as absorbic acid (instead of ascorbic acid) twice in a lecture. Not impressed by him at all. The oncologist I met with was 40 pounds overweight...not exactly following a sprouts, etc. diet. I did learn a number of things there though but I learned more from the book "The Enzyme Factor".

Keep your physical, mental, and spiritual at it's best...no guarantee even if you do it but I'm sure that it increases your chances of success.

Best wishes for a long life.

Do the best you can.

Jake, thanks for the info ,did you go to the raw diet after Hippocrates and if so where you able to stick to it? I am in S.Fla and was thinking of giving it a try for two weeks

Hi bball.

No, I didn't do the all raw diet.

Brown rice and steamed broccoli are part of my every day diet.

I'll eat baked fish and chicken as well.

I haven't eaten ice cream or cookies since my surgery 3+ years ago.... I miss it but I've also gotten used to my diet.

It's great if you can eat all raw....many years ago, that is all that could be eaten.

Hippocrates has some good things but as I said, I did not trust some of the people there. If you do go, don't be afraid to ask questions until you are satisfied with the answer. There is some good knowledge to come away with, but remember too, that it is a business!! I would recommend the place to anyone but I would also say that one may be disappointed when you consider the price tag....then again, when you've had melanoma, the cost may not be important.

 

Do the best you can.

Jake I rememberon your profile you Dr. is Anna Pavlick at nyu I had an appt. for next Monday that they just cancelled because she won't be there. They want me to see Dr. Ott . I am going for another opinion not an emergency. Do you know anything about Dr. Ott  or would you suggest waiting for dr. Pavlick

Thanks Bball

Well, not trying to be Debbie Downer here, I don't think any of the things listed above will hurt anybody.  By the same token, I did the macrobiotic diet (went to the official Kushi Institute as per Carole K) and ended up with not only one recurrence in the brain, but two (one was a bleeder)- I did lose a lot of weight though and felt healthier.  On the way home from that ER visit, I had a nice pint of Ben and Jerry's, and ate the whole thing.  Not the healthiest choice in the world, but for some people it really doesn't make a difference.  I learned from that experience that all things in moderation is ok, and the best strategy is to eat lots of fruits and vegetables, stay active, and don't overeat.  Common sense and general healthy living is a good choice.  A low stress lifestyle is also important.
