Our three earlier posts are on breast cancer — two “rotten cases” and one “rewarding” case. Here is another one for you ponder on.

Dear Dr. Chris Teo,
My name is D. I am 37 this year and currently residing in Singapore. Out of desperation from searching for information about my mum’s breast cancer, I came to know about you and CA Care.
Having bought and read a few e-books from CA Care, I am well aware of the healing process suggested by CA Care.
Background: Sometime this year, my mother (J, 56) noticed a lump on her left breast. Only until Sep 2015, she decided to visit K Hospital for check up. Upon investigation, the doctor in K Hospital diagnosed her with breast cancer and she was being referred to Singapore National Cancer Centre.
Last week, we had the first appointment at NCC. Doctor confirmed that it was early stage 4 breast cancer.
At the moment, no surgery, chemotherapy and radiation treatment were ordered. My mum is currently prescribed hormone therapy (Letrozole Alvogen) with next follow up appointment in Nov 2015.
Note: Letrozole is also known as Femara.
Attached are her medical reports.
Mammogram, 3 Sept. 2015: There is an ill-defined … mass …in left breast at 12:00 – 1.00 position. It measures 50x 35 mm.
Several other nodules are seen are both breasts. They are all subcentimetre .. and have well-defined borders.
At least two abnormal lymph nodes are seen in the left axillae.
Left breast core biopsy, 9 Sept. 2015: Invasive ductal carcinoma.
FNA left axillary lymph node: Metastatic carcinoma.
Hormonal status: Estrogen receptors positive, Progesterone receptors negative, CerbB2 negative.
Bone scan, 15 Sept. 2015: Increased tracer uptake in the right humeral head / proximal shaft.
I have spoken to my mum about your work and she is willing to heed your advice. Therefore, may I bring her over to Penang to see you asap? Dear Chris, please advice her and save her…
Reply: If you think I can help you, yes– come with all medical reports and scan …. Monday to Thurs at 11 a.m.

D from Singapore here. It’s almost a month since we visited you in CA Care. I have to thank you for helping and speaking to my mum with regards to her breast cancer … my mum will be having her 2nd review (blood test) at NCC tomorrow, 3rd November. I will update you.

Attached is my mother’s latest scan in Dec 2015. Verified that all tumors had shrunk in sizes and some had even disappeared.
To recap, my mother had been taking your herbs since Sep 2015 + Aromatase Inhibitor (Letrozole Alvogen) to block the estrogen. Any comments for the progress?
This is indeed a unique and amazing case! Why?
If you have a lump in your breast, it is most likely that you will be asked to have it removed. Then after the surgery, you will be asked to go for chemo and radiation. Then and only then would you be asked to take Tamoxifen or Femara for 5 years! That’s the norm — especially if you are to go to a private hospital and have the money to pay for the medical bills.
When this “healthy” 56-yer-old lady came and told us that she got none of these invasive treatments (except Femara) we were surprised — can this be an improved, non-money-driven-therapy? How great it would be if most women were treated this way!
After about two months on CA Care Therapy and Femara, the tumours shrunk and some seemed to have disappeared (listen to video). That is amazing.
And what is even more amazing is that the oncologist did not object to the patient taking herbs! In fact he was supportive of her doing so. Rarely can you find such a situation! Generally, patients are scolded and told NOT to take “unscientific and unproven” therapy like herbs. Patients are often told that herbs can destroy the liver or kidney!
In the U.S. some doctors would label alternative healers as quacks or snake oil peddlers. We are glad to learn that alternative healers do have some “friends” among the medical doctors in modern, no-nonsense Singapore! Bravo!
This patient came to see us twice. On both occasions she looked healthy — there was nothing much that bothered her, apart from knowing that there are lumps in her breasts, around the neck and chest. But as we always tell patients — let us learn to live with the cancer, not declaring war on the cancer!
If you can eat, can sleep, can move around and have no pain then be grateful for what you are. As it is this patient still has a job and is happily working! Imagine what happens if she was to undergo chemo and radiation — quality life gone but the cancer would not be cured anyway. Or possibly the cancer may even spread more extensively and aggressively after these treatments!
