Brain Tumour Shrunk With Herbs

·    In 2002 had fluid in the brain (hydrocephalus) and was diagnosed with pineocytoma.

·    A V-P shunt (tubing) was installed but she suffered relapse six months later.

·    Reinstalled V-P shunt because earlier one was wrongly placed.

·    No further treatment ~ wait and see.

·    In 2004 ~  tumour grew in size. Neurosurgen suggested radiotherapy as growing tumour could kill her. Declined radiotherapy and opted for herbs.
