This is my first post to the group and I am happy to share some good news with
you all. My stepdad was diagnosed with Stage IV Pancreatic and Liver Cancer on
August 15th. As soon as it was suspected that he may be diagnosed with cancer
we started him on the Budwig Protocol. At that time, his tumor markers were at
1500 and he was given a couple of weeks to live.
He initially decided to go with a highly aggressive chemotherapy treatment and
after the first treatment, the side effects were so severe that he did not go
back. Instead, he went to another doctor who put him on a low dose of Gemzar to
"buy him a few more weeks". The mainstay of his plan has been "a light dose" of
Gemzar and the BP. We've played a little with alkaline foods, and almond seeds
but found a lot of conflicting information. So the main focus for him has been
the Gemzar and the BP.
Since September he's been folloiwng this plan. He has an excellent appetite,
has been gaining weight, the pain has subsided, and he is now back to his normal
daily activities. Yesterday he received the results of his tumor markers and
they fell to 200. The doctor said "the cancer is dying." (yay!)
As a side note, a friend of the family also asked for the BP because her
daughter-in-law was diagnosed with breast cancer the same week as my step dad.
Five weeks after being on the BP, she was told they couldn't find the tumor,
Stay hopeful, the BP does work!!
