Dr. Russell L. Blaylock, a neurosurgeon and author of Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills, Health & Nutrition Secrets to Save Your Life and Cancer Strategeries, http://www.russellblaylockmd.com) wrote an article: How Modern Medicine Killed My Brother.
Let me quote some of what he wrote:
- Earlier this month, I traveled to Monroe, La., to bury my dear older brother, Charles. Charles, unfortunately, began smoking when he was in law school, something I warned him about repeatedly.
- After misdiagnosis after misdiagnosis, Charles was eventually diagnosed with lung cancer. Once the diagnosis was made, an oncologist was naturally called, who wanted to start a complete course of chemotherapy drugs.
- I advised my brother against it, knowing the cancer would not respond and the toxic drugs would dramatically increase his breathing difficulties, hastening his death. He took my advice.
- Then, a radiation oncologist suggested radiating the tumor to shrink it. I wasn’t supportive of this treatment, but my brother wanted something done. Soon afterward, he started five and a half weeks of radiation treatment.
- The oncologist told Charles he was losing too much weight and he needed to eat more bread, pasta and even sweets to gain weight. …I told him that losing the weight would make it easier for him to breath. I had given him a copy of my book on the nutritional treatment of cancer and told him it was critical he follow the advice exactly.
- Unfortunately, Charles decided he didn’t like the taste of the blenderized vegetables and would do what the oncologist suggested. He began to eat ice cream, cookies and other items that cancer patients should never eat. Once he finished the radiation treatments, he developed fever, severe shortness of breath and had to be admitted to the hospital… he had to be intubated and placed on a respirator.
- The practice of medicine has changed drastically in the world, especially in this country.
- The new breed of doctor, like my brother’s doctors … are convinced this “cookbook” medicine is superior and their elite journals and medical associations know best… they are mere cogs in the wheel …They are unable to think for themselves.
- Unfortunately, doctors, like those who killed my brother, are being turned out of medical schools all over the country like robots.
Read carefully what Dr. Blaylock wrote and you will soon realize that such tragedy can happen anywhere and everywhere; over and over again. And yet no one seems to learn.
Let it be known, this is how the world operates — misdiagnosis after misdiagnosis; surgery, chemo or radiation if it is cancer; eat anything you like, etc. etc. It is all the same in every hospital you are in no matter where you are. Then the patient may eventually dies! For those who can afford, not before spending a pile of money. Yes, the family feels good for putting up a great fight — heroic act, so to say, in trying to save their loved one.
I can fully understand how frustrated Dr. Blaylock felt having to go through the experience he had described — seeing first-hand how modern medicine killed his brother but being unable to do anything to help even though he himself is a medical doctor.
I decided to write this article to share with you my own experience, which is somewhat similar to Dr. Blaylock’s. No, it did not happen to my own brother or sister, but a very close dear relative, two years younger than me.
Not too long ago (June 2015) this dear relative was diagnosed with a recurrent cancer. Unfortunately the cancer had spread to her liver which had ruptured, spilling fluid in the abdomen and pelvis. The cancer could have infiltrated the pancreas as well. The right lung was filled with fluid and the cancer could have also spread to her lungs.
Her CA 125 = 775.6; CA 15.3 = 234.5; and CA 19.9 =171.2
No doubt, to anyone who knows something about cancer, this is a very serious case with no chance of a cure. Her doctor wrote: she is not a candidate for surgery due to the advanced disease and also her poor general condition. However, she may perhaps benefit from systemic therapy. In simple language, she had to undergo chemotherapy (what else?).
I was not involved in any decision that the family made — rightly, this is what it should be. Everyone in the family should have a say but no outsider involved!
Perhaps, as a matter of “courtesy”, I received a call informing me that she was going for chemotherapy as advised by the “best oncologist in the best hospital” in the country.
On hearing this, I did my part — not to object to chemotherapy but to explain what chemo is (even if I am aware that the family consists of medically educated members). It took me more than an hour to deliver my simple but crude message: Chemo is going to kill her. My estimation was she would not go pass three rounds of this poisonous treatment. She will die.
Round one of chemo caused much misery.
Round two of carboplatin resulted in an almost total disaster. She had to be hospitalised — she was weak, unable to walk, was very fatigued and had very poor appetite. All along, she was on morphine due to severe pain. Her blood was low and she needed blood transfusion. Fluid had to be tapped out of her right lung. At last, the doctor’s recommendation — supportive cares, no further chemo. In simple layman language they gave up on her after two shots of chemo.
It was at this point that the family went into a frenzy and started to call me for help. Needless to say, I was glad that the doctor had come to realise the folly of giving chemo to terminally ill patient. Chemo had been shown to add misery to the already miserable patient.
My advice to the family were:
- Let her stay in the hospital for a while more to stablize her condition after all the damage done.
- Okay, put in the blood because she is anemic.
- Take care of the diet …no rubbish food.
- Bring the house maid to our centre so that we can teach her how to cook “healthy food.”
- Drink juices. But can take porridge BUT no meat, egg, sugar, oil, etc. … a bit of fish okay.
- Once she is stable then we can slowly give her the herbs.
- From the medical reports, she needs a lot of herb teas but I am not going to be too ambitious or aggressive because after the chemo had destroyed the stomach lining, she may react badly to the herbs.
- Slowly, later, I shall replace the morphine with Pain Tea. But for now she can still take the painkiller because of the pain.
We need herbs for her liver, pancreas, lymph nodes, lung (even fluid in the lung) and abdominal distension / ascites. I have herbs for all these problems … but as I have said let her recover from the chemo damage first otherwise she would throw out all these.
Please let me know how she is recovering after the transfusion. Be sure that I am ready to do my best to help in whatever way I can.
Sadly, a day after I wrote the e-mail, a message came through that this dear relative died.
I took this news with a heavy heart but I expected this tragic end all along. I was sad at the same time angry because I felt helpless.
Nevertheless, after seeing deaths like this happen a hundred and one times, it dawned on me that the ultimate and true healing for any terminal cancer patient is death. If possible, let death comes without pain or any added man-made sufferings. Let us die with dignity surrounded by our loved ones. Let us not die as a rotten vegetable. That is what I would want it to be — for me.
Do you really know what chemo is?
Let me end by asking you to reflect on what Henry Ford and Albert Einstein said:
To my dear relative. Now that you are gone, rest in peace with the Lord.
Heaven is such a beautiful place. In the not too distant future, we shall meet again.
