Hello again Victoria:
Whoops! I’m more than a bit prone to overstatement at times. I was reading today about a cancer cure some alternative health practicioners really put stock in, and the author was such a believer that I took on a little bit of his tone when addresssing you.
I really do believe that the powers that be–as discussed– have a seriously limiting effect on the breadth and depth of all research–including that on cancer causes and treatments. But I do not personally have the evidence which would allow me to conclude that any are deliberately withholding cures that have been proven to work. I have read of alternative practicioners who present evidence of such claims, and I believe some of them may indeed be true–but I am not a personal witness to the accuracy of their claims. My personal experience with the medical/political/academic establishment has, however, rendered much more believeable to me the likely truthfulness of some of their claims. The development of whatever comes to be accepted as scientific truth can be a very disturbing process.
I truly hope for you and Ned that as your research continues, the treatments selected will yield the best possible outomes.
God bless you and your Ned.

I read the website and a little googling. It does sound almost ‘to good to be true’ – does that usually mean something is? My thinking would be that there must be some fairly formidable/dangerous side effects which I suppose the payient has to look at how much they can gain (my brother calls this cost/benefit analysis and it can be applied to everything).
I can’t help with any trials but I’m sure you’ll be cautious when dealing with anyone who stands to make money out of Ned. Seems to me that Governments so stringently ban these things (in the wake of thalydomide scandals etc) there must be some reason… But one could also point out that the money to produce cancer drugs comes from the big companies, and so does the research etc.
I’m reading the anti-cancer book by David Servan-Schreiber which is very interesting. Most of what he says ties in with what Andy and Linda recommended recently in the alternative therapies section of this site.
Best wishes to you and Ned

Thank you for taking the time to look at that website. My thinking was similar to yours about the obstacles that needed to be overcome. These teasing hints about the true cures being kept from us is very disturbing to me and I’m sure others also.
Although, I am the cc club member, my brother is the patient of this disease. I guess you call me the researcher so I do spend a great deal of my time reading the discussion boards and trying to learn, learn, learn. Your suggestion regarding “Knockout” is the 3rd or 4th I’ve heard and so I think it’s time to get that book.

Welcome to the cc club! Just a member, here, after reviewing the website the link led me to–it is my first viewing of this alternative therapy. We have
BigPharma, the FDA, and the conservative elements of the AMA to overcome in gaining access to any such therapy in this country–and that’s not including BigInsurance, BigGovernment, and so-called health care reform.
As you continue to view the postings on this site, you will enjoy learning about the many things members are trying, and sometimes a teasing hint at the true cures being kept from us.
May I suggest the new book by Suzanne Sommers, “Knockout!”, in which she interviews several cutting edge researchers in treatment alternatives- who have battled the aforementioned big powers aligned against us.
That being said, I’ve taken advantage of chemotherapy and radiation, as well as naturopopathic supplementation to this point. My best Naturopathic Doctor is a telphone call away at Life Extension Foundation, of which I am yet a member–and he has guided me well on what supplements to take and avoid during chemotherapy and radiation.
God bless you and yours

My brother Ned forwarded a link to me regarding this very old form of cancer treatment called Coley Fluid Therapy. He asked me to look into it, I searched it on this site and found that there has not been past discussion about it. The link is http://www.mbvax.com. Has anyone heard of any clinical trials about this treatment? It was interesting reading but I really don’t know what to think of it. The website says some countrys won’t allow it which makes me wonder. If anyone gets some time take a look at this link and tell me what you think.
