Surgery did not cure his colon cancer

MW is a 47-year-old vegetable seller at a wet market in Singapore. He is a jovial man! His problem started about 9 years ago, August 2007, when he passed out blood in his stool. He went to a “very good” doctor in a private hospital and was told he had colon cancer. He underwent a surgery. MW was fitted with a colostomy bag for a while and then underwent a second operation to rejoin his colon. MW said the total treatment cost is about SGD 40,000.

After the surgery the surgeon said there was NO need to undergo any chemotherapy, radiotherapy or take any medication.

Since MW did not bring his medical reports, I am not able to know more about his colon cancer.

About 9 years later, MW suffered a relapse. A PET-CT scan showed:

  • soft tissue lesion involving the prostate.
  • several sub-centimeter lung nodules.

His CEA in February 2017 was 34.0 (high).

MW consulted an oncologist in a government hospital. He was told to undergo chemotherapy. The drugs to be used are either: Oral capecitabine (Xeloda) + oxaliplatin injection, or Oral capecitabine (Xeloda) + Irrinocetan.

MW hesitated to undergo chemotherapy. The oncologist told him, If you do not want to undergo chemotherapy, then no need to come and see me. Don’t waste my time. I have too many patients to take care. 

Through the recommendation of a friend, MW went to Thailand for further treatment in September 2017. A six-week treatment in Thailand cost him about SGD 40,000.

Did the treatment in Thailand help you? MW said he felt better and his CEA dropped from 34 to 8. But unfortunately, MW said, This improvement was not sustainable.

After MW returned to Singapore, his CEA increased to 18.0

Did they ask you to go back again for more treatment? They never suggest that but I decided not to go back there again. I already spent so much money. In addition, the patient who recommended me to that place also suffered the same fate like me. Her well being worsened again.

Comments 

There are a few lessons that we can learn from this story.

  1. Surgery did not cure cancer! 

Over the years dealing with cancer patients, I have learned that patients like to hear what they only want to hear! They believe that “doctors know all” and whatever their doctors say will be the whole truth!

Listen to what Dr. Veatch said:

With due respect to the learned surgeon. He did his best and he believed that he “Got it all out.” That is what all patients want to hear any way!

  1. Cancer can come back again.

The truth is, if you think you are done with your cancer, know that the cancer may not be done with you yet!

In this case, MW was told everything was removed —  “clean” and he was cured by the surgery! Nine years later, we know that his doctor was wrong.

Here is another quotation for you to reflect on.

Dr. Barry Boyd highlighted what happens today in most health care settings. And probably this is going to happen in the future too. It happens in America and it happens in Singapore and Malaysia!

  1. To stay healthy is your responsibility.

I always remind patients to be careful — take steps to take care of yourself to minimize the possible recurrence of your cancer! Yes, you can do that but your doctors may not tell you, or may not know what to tell you!

You need to seek out such information yourself. Understand that to stay healthy or to get sick is your responsibility, not your doctor’s.

But take it from me, most patients couldn’t care less about my advice!

 

 

 

Healing Cancer is about care and love. To heal is about YOU, your attitude and your belief

Good morning Dr. Chris,

Just to share my experience with you …

Mary with Ovarian Cancer

This lady had a stage for Stage 4 ovarian CA who came last Feb 2016, seeking for 2nd opinion, her name is Mary (not real name). Apparently she rejected conventional therapy. But the alternative cancer therapy she switched to also gave her chemo but in a non-standard small dosage (carboplatin 5X, radiotherapy 27X) for palliative purpose.

She came seeking for a cure, I told her herbs don’t cure cancers, they only help to heal the body. This concept sounded so foreign to her that she lost confidence and went to the other alternative medical doctor. I told myself “that is fine”, that patient will not do well also if she had started herbs because her mindset is not right.

Julie with Breast Cancer

Fast forward one year later, she came and brought her friend (Julie) who has Stage 4 Ca breast with metastasis to bone and liver. By this action I knew Mary agreed with what I said last year and she still trusts me. She wanted me to help her friend.

But I felt vulnerable. Julie has been having chemo from China and locally — now in a bad shape, short of having herself killed.

If I were to start the herbs and she dies, her family members will think that the herbs kill her. I was reluctant to start her on herbs because her expectations were wrong and she still has not given up with the chemo-alternative therapy.

She is one person with one foot here and another foot there. She could not make up her mind. She is confused, scared and suffering.

My observations

Personally both patients wanted to get out of their current treatment but has invested too much in it (to the tune of RM 400k), but too scared.

They are still not grasping the reality that cancer cannot be cured.

And the doctor (not oncologist), when failed in her alternative therapy such as GCMAF and thymus therapy, encouraged patient to go for chemo.

And the oncologist in the hospital then told her that chemotherapy is also divided to conventional chemo — the high dose — and the alternative low dose chemo, but off label used mainly for palliation.

Naturally the patient opted for ‘alternative-chemo’.

In hindsight, comparing my patients with these two patients treated by another ‘alternative doctor’:

1) My CA patients eventually becomes calm, happy, and have a positive outlook of life and prepared to go, cherishing each day as if it was their last.

In contrast, Mary and Julie are still seeking for ‘better’ treatment as long as their finances allows them. They are worried, seeking second opinion for reassurance that what they are doing is right.

2) My CA patients are free to switch or stop their current treatment with herbs and do anything that they think is better or is able to help them. And even when they decide to change, they somehow are still in good terms with me and would sometimes refer their friends who needed help to me.

Whereas, Mary and Julie were initially promised (guaranteed) many things — their confidence boosted. Then later they discovered that such promises were not fulfilled and the guarantee was false.

When they confronted the doctor, the guilt and fear trap was laid by the doctor. Blaming patient for what they did wrong and they would die if they continue to do the ‘wrong’ thing (like stopping their treatment).

Out of fear, they continued with more treatment with the same doctor which they have begun to distrust.

Later on, they will speak negatively about this doctor and tell their friends to avoid this doctor.

That is how I found out about what this doctor is doing.

I am seeing her wither and die in front of me and I cannot and dare not do anything. Very sad.

Best regards,

Dr. Julian

Note: GcMAF is a protein produced by modification of vitamin D-binding protein. Proponents of GcMAF claim that it is an immunomodulatory protein that has antitumor properties and strengthens the immune system by macrophage activation.

 

 

 

Advanced Breast Cancer Part 2: To die or to heal is your choice

Advanced Breast Cancer Part 1: You need not have to die!

Paula Black had breast cancer and had undergone a double mastectomy. She told her doctor:

  • But I did not want any of my lymph nodes removed. They are essential part of my immune system, so I need them. And I’m rejecting all radiation and chemotherapy treatments… I believe God is healing me this way.

Paula’s surgeon replied: Paula, I must tell you, I do not agree with your decision.

Without chemo and radiation, the doctor said Paula would have only 3 to 6 months (the maximum) to live. Would you believe that? You should not. Doctors are not God. In this case, Paula’s doctor was wrong. Paula went on to live up to this day and had shared her healing story for the world to know.

Visit her website: www.paulablack.org/my-book-life-cancer-and-god/

Meet Paula via this video ….

 

ALL  patients want to be successful like Paula — cancer gone (and I can go back to my old lifestyle again). But let me be blunt. Not many patients can do what Paula did, that’s the real problem! Over the past 20 years we have spent time helping cancer patients. We know what it is like dealing with “sick” human beings. Seventy percent of patients who came to seek our help were searching for the non-existent  magic bullet or expecting us to provide healing on a silver platter. Only a rare few understood that health is their responsibility and they have to work hard to achieve their healing.

All these years, we in CA Care have been saying the same things from the viewpoint of a healer. In Paula’s book, Life, Cancer and God, Paula related her story in great detail. Let me share with you why I said Paula had written a great book that you must read. What Paula did while on her healing journey made her a winner in her battle with cancer. Let Paula be your role model!

Cancer strikes – do you blame God?

It is understandable, many would ask, “Why?, Why me? What bad things have I done to deserve this “punishment”?. It is even harder if one is a God-fearing child of God. Why does God allow this? Has God forsaken me? I have done so many good things, I don’t deserve this.

Paula wrote:

  • My face fell in crushing disappointment … How could God allow this to happen? … I feel frustrated … We’ve given up so much in this world to obey God … and now this? Just think about it. We love God and want to serve Him always … we’ve given away houses, jet airplanes, cars, retirement, and travel benefits … a whole lot of money … We did this willingly in order to follow what we believed God had for us … and then BAM … to get hit with cancer? What is going on? Why would God let that happen?

When I read the above passage, I felt right in my heart what many patients felt, the same way that Paula had felt. Often times, cancer patients told me this – Dr. Chris, don’t worry you already have a reserve seat in Heaven for what you have done for us! I smiled in response but kept silent. I understand, for many believe that they need to do good deeds to gain good credits in order to get to Heaven. It does not make sense why good people get cancer. But being a Christian, I understand we are saved by Grace not good works. If I get cancer, I understand too that I have “violated” God’s Law of Nature – intentionally or unintentionally. Getting cancer is not a punishment from a loving and compassionate God!

I am glad that Paula did not blame God for her cancer! She did not give up on God too. I am equally glad that Paula did not consider cancer is a punishment from God.

Many cancer patients wrote that getting cancer is a blessing – the best thing that can ever happen in their lives, a timely wake up call. We tell patients to look at it as a blessing.

Strong Support from Spouse and Family Members

Without doubt, when you are sinking, you need all the help that you can get or offered to you. Strong support from our loved ones is an essential ingredient to success. Her dear husband, Dale was the rock for Paula. He did all the literature research and was ever a fountain of encouraging words.

  • If you focus on a three-pronged approach — you body, your soul and your spirit — then I firmly believe you will succeed.
  • The most difficult times of life can become the best times of life if we let God direct them. That’s what I’ve experienced. And that can happen for you too, sweetheart.
  • I don’t believe for a second that God caused cancer in your body. That is not like God. Something else has caused this cancer, yet God has allowed it. Soon we’re going to learn why. Then we’re going to find out what we can do about it. That’s just one of the wonderful things about God. He will turn something terrible into something wonderful if we let Him.

Find Strength in Spirituality

My wife and I are Christians. When we set up CA Care in 1995, we set our bearing right. We are open to all God’s children, irrespective of religion, race or bank account. We accept you as you are and encourage you to seek help from your God – whoever you believe in.

Paula found strength is her Christian God. Dale told Paula, Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you. From personal experience, I can promise that if you keep pursuing God … you won’t be disappointed. You’ll find what you’re looking for.

Paula wrote:

  • Believing God want me well is the cornerstone of whatever plan I choose to follow. I know I don’t have the power to fix this. But God does.

Friends Be Considerate!

Paula and Dale headed for the hills — just to be away and get things sorted out. In short, they have to run away from all the well-meaning but destructive distractions.  Their phone never stop ringing. Many concerned people wanted to know: How are you doing, What are you going to do? … There is no shortage of recommendations.

  • Good grief, Dale, I don’t think I can handle one more call. I mean, I know their intentions are all good, I know they’re trying to show they care. But the constant bombardment is more than I can handle.
  • What can I do … I am confused and frustrated and afraid. And I have no idea what I’m going to do!

We understand this scenario very well. I used to warn patients, You family members, your friends … As of yesterday they know nothing about cancer but today because you have cancer, they all have become professors or experts on cancer, telling you to do this and do that! Beware.

We are fully aware that loved ones and friends want to show their concern and care. But please take note that your action can be over-bearing. We often received emails saying my friend has cancer, my auntie has cancer, etc. can you please help. Hang on a minute, you are not the patient! How do you know that that patient needs my help? At best, if that makes you happy,  you can just tell the patient that there is such a thing as CA Care — there is no need to go further than that. Let the patient decide what he/she wants to do.

My People Are Destroyed for Lack of Knowledge, Hosea 4:6

  • I have no time to think, no time to process. I need quiet. I need time alone with God to figure out how He is leading me. I have to find the path God has for me.

Dale smiled and said I’ve already made the arrangements. We’re all set. Let’s take the dog and whatever essentials we need and get out of town!

  • This is the perfect time to get more books for the research we’re doing on cancer and treatment options. Let’s pick some up and take them with us to the mountains. That’s the perfect place to focus.
  • Our first stop was the library … when we finally checked out, we were both carrying two armloads of books and journals.
  • At the bookstore … after skimming through the mountains of books, we narrowed it down to eight that we just had to have.
  • We were ready …..(to) uncover the mysteries of cancer. There must be more than forty books here. How are we supposed to get through all them in a few days?
  • Dear God, Paula and I ask for Your help as we search for her way of escape … Guide us through this mountain of information. Help us learn what You want us to learn.

Right on spot Paula. We tell our patients. No need to rush to get things done. Take time to reflect and think. Take time to read and gather information. Unfortunately, patients do not want to read. They do not want to find out for themselves. They prefer to mortgage their fate to others (the experts). Experts know best, trust them. Pathetic indeed.

  • Facts are one thing – truth is another. With truth, there are no more mixed signals. Usually truth is so hard to swallow that most people aren’t open to it … And if they do hear the truth, they often go into denial or get angry – even hostile.

Both Paula and her husband started to read and research. And they found many unexpected discoveries.

Dale said, Based on what I’ve been learning, I believe God is answering our prayers. We are finding glimpses of the truth …. There’s nothing that gets me more riled up than knowing I’ve been lied to.

The Truths Discovered

Away from distraction, Paula and Dale started to read more and learned more. I am glad to know that they had a rare privilege to meet a medical doctor who also had breast cancer. Since this book is specially dedicated to Dr. Lorraine Day — “was instrumental in saving my life” —  I guess the doctor who Paula and Dale met must have been Dr. Day. Indeed, if you have breast cancer, I fully recommend that you visit Dr. Day’s website,  http://www.drday.com/

Let me give you some examples of the “unbelievable and shocking” truths that Paula and Dale “discovered.”

The doctor (who Paula said had saved her life) told both Paula and Dale the following:

  • I was diagnosed with advanced terminal breast cancer. But as a medical doctor, I knew that standard treatment would not save my life. I knew if I went to the hospital and followed the normal medical protocol for cancer, it would kill me. Instead I diligently searched every alternative method available until I found my way through the maze. Eventually, I reversed my cancer … I got well without radiation or chemotherapy.
  • Do you really think chemotherapy can cure cancer? … Drugs can’t cure disease. Chemotherapy is a drug — it cannot cure cancer.  At best, drugs suppress symptoms …. And all drugs have side effects.
  • Radiation can’t cure cancer either… And radiation does immense damage to healthy cells too.
  • The medical system is broken. It’s completely upside down.
  • When it comes to cancer, doctors are taught only to cut, poison or burn tumours – with surgery, chemotherapy or radiation.
  • We doctors are trained only to treat symptoms. Doctors don’t deal with root causes. That’s how the medical system works.
  • Tumors are not the cancer. Tumors are the symptoms of cancer.
  • The patient sometimes shows temporary sign of improvement from chemotherapy and radiation. However, the treatments actually make the cancer worse, not better.

What is cancer?

  • Cancer is the result of a repressed immune system. Cancer results from a broken-down immune system – suppressed immune system – plain and simple. It usually takes years for a tumour to grow to large enough size to detect, which means your immune system has been weakened for a long time. When cancer is discovered, it’s not just your breast or prostate or lung that has a problem … if you have cancer anywhere, it means your entire system is compromised.
  • Cancer is a systemic disease. 

You cause you own cancer!

  • You cause you own cancer … you gave yourself cancer … whether knowingly or unknowingly. You didn’t just randomly get invaded by this disease. Instead you bring this on yourself.
  • Since you caused it, you can reverse it … by rebuilding and strengthening one’s immune system. If the immune system is working properly, it is not possible for cancer to develop.
  • Your immune system is healthy when you feed it the vitamins, minerals, enzymes and water it needs to heal itself. Start by giving your body what it needs to have a strong immune system.
  • You — and only you — must take responsibility … you are the only one who can reverse you cancer. None of us can do it for you.
  • You will reverse it one day at a time.
  • Make necessary lifestyle changes starting now. Learn how to live in a way that you will never, ever develop cancer.
  • You can prevent this disease. You don’t have to get cancer.

Cancer is not hereditary

  • Cancer is passed down through families all right, but not through the genes.
  • With only minor exceptions, cancer is passed down by training the child how to eat, drink, think, and how to cope with stress …. passed down by habit patterns, behavioral models in the home.

Why don’t my doctors tell me all these?

  • There is a protocol for cancer in place that doctors cannot violate with huge liability and personal cost. So they stay with the herd. They place protection of their careers over protection of their patients.
  • Any medical doctor who turns to alternative medicine will be crucified by their peers and by the medical industry. There are big dollars to protect the status quo.
  • Cancer is a big business and bring in hundreds of billions of dollars every year. The doctors are just the middlemen, the salespeople for the drug companies.
  • The big pharmaceutical and medical companies that make billions on the cancer business also spend millions on undermining the claims of alternative medicine. They work aggressively and spend many dollars labelling it “quackery”.
  • There is a massive campaign to keep people moving through the conventional medical system.

Total belief in medical expert?

  • Why do you have to do what they say just because they say it? Instead pay attention to your body. Learn about healthcare for yourself … become an expert on how your body is designed to function. It is not diffiuclt. It just takes some time and attention …. time to read and learn and grow.
  • Don’t ever let a doctor rush you into a decision. It’s a game they play. Don’t play it with them.

Three to six months to live?

  • Doctors do not know how long you’re going to live. It is insanely irresponsible to tell a patient how long they have to live. That is cruel and immoral. Many patients — thousands of patients — die each year because they believe the “threat” their doctors give them.

There is a better  way

  • Now you know … you can stick your head back in the sand and stay in denial if you want to — to your own detriment.
  • Or you question what is happening and look at the information and statistics that are available and accept the truth. The medical system is broken. Standard cancer treatment doesn’t work.
  • There is a better way.

Let me ask you to once again reflect on these quotations:

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Hosea 4:6.

You shall know the truth, and the truth will set you free. John 8:32

After his intensive research Dale and Paula did learn many more “unbelievable and shocking”  things about cancer. Dale said:

Finding the “Correct” Truth

  • Most people don’t really want the truth. They want only what they want. Seldom do they seek the complete truth.
  • I am aware that your life depends on you getting all information – correctly and accurately.
  • I am having a hard time finding solid data when it comes to cancer cure rates … it’s what everyone with cancer wants to know.
  • A person is considered “cured of cancer” if they don’t die within 5 years of diagnosis. That ain’t no cure, baby.

Chemotherapy

  • A person who takes enough chemo to kill all the cancer cells in their body will die from the toxicity of the chemo well before the cancer cells are destroyed.
  • Chemo doesn’t stop cancer from spreading. Chemo can only slow down and shrink the cancer tumour. Meanwhile it devastates the patient’s immune system, making the cancer problem worse …. A weak immune system is what allows the cancer to grow out.

Profit is More Important than Your Life

  • I’ve learned that there’s an unholy alliance between the pharmaceutical industry and the FDA. The FDA approves drugs not necessarily because they’re helpful to the patients but because they bring money and profits to the huge pharmaceutical industry.
  • True, some of the drugs extend life of cancer patients, but none of them cure cancer.
  • The medical industry doesn’t want to cure cancer.
  • The reality … extending the life of people with cancer makes more money than curing them … keep cancer as a chronic disease … provides a long-term profit.
  • If they find the cure for cancer, our medical system would lose literally billions of dollars every year. Hundreds and thousands of jobs would disappear – not just in the medical field but in all cancer related fields.

Patient’s Misguided Priority

  • Ninety-five percent of cancer patients who use some form of alternative cancer treatment have already had conventional (medical) treatment. That’s almost everyone. Many of them had everything orthodox medicine could offer and were sent home to die.
  • This means the alternative medicine was chosen as a last resort when they were already in dire critical condition and medical science had given up on them.
  • I’ve learned that it’s critical to START with an alternative treatment instead of end with one. Make alternative medicine your first option!

Finally, having known all of the above, Paula made her move. Remember, it is useless to know — to spend time reading — if you do not want to act upon what you know!! She wrote:

  • Cancer is about life and death. Cancer is also about choices.
  • No one else could face this enemy for me. This was a battle I had to fight, a war I had to win.
  • I am aware that for me to get well and stay well, I must eliminate things like worry, resentment and unforgiveness from my life. These things affect both my spirit and my soul. If I don’t deal with them, they can manifest in my physical body in negative ways.
  • The conerstone of my new diet was juice — fresh organic vegetable juice. Every day, I also drank … glasses of pure clean water — free of fluoride, chloride and other harmful contaminants.
  • I eliminated … sugar, caffeine, coffee and soda.
  • Meat and dairy products were banned entirely.
  • Nothing cooked, fried or frozen were allowed.
  • No fast foods or processed foods.

I had drawn a line in the sand … I learned that God would use anything for my good and His glory — if I did things His way. God will not tempt you beyond that which you are able to endure … without making a way of escape. God was true to His promise. I had found my way of escape.

The final word from Paula: If you find the truth, will you believe it?

Part 3: She Found Hope in CA Care

In mid-May, our sister-in-law in Singapore called to inform us that her sister had just been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. She became the fourth person in her family down with cancer. She requested to see us. Of course, we are here to help those who need our help.

We were indeed happy to know that after two and a half hours of conversation with us, Corinna had found hope in what we are doing. We did not promise her a cure – but we promised to do our best to help her! Are we just providing “false hope”? To cancer patients and skeptics, we have this message for them:

As we talked to Corinna that day, we saw the transformation in her! Watch this video!

Let me reproduce the e-mails that Corinna wrote.

26 May 2012

Hello Corinna, I spent the whole of Saturday editing your videos. What stood out is that the first hour at CA Care was probably the darkest hour of your life — never even smile! Then after that there was magic! You put on your sweet, infectious smile! What happened? Look at those photos —  would you like to tell us what happened inside you? We can share that will those who are going to read your story!

                                                         Her first hour of gloom

                                                     The break of dawn!

Dr Chris,  Thank you very much for the photos.

The first two pictures clearly reflected my fear, my frustrations and confusions.

Having been told by the Singapore oncologist that I have no hope and he couldn’t cure me, I was on the verge of giving up. Will this man (you,Dr Chris) who is talking to me now offer me any solution and hope? I was praying then that GOD will show me HIS direction. The 3rd photo showed my eyes closing talking to GOD.

When you started talking, I became more alert and your words slowly flowed to me and I experienced calm and peace.

I just felt at that moment GOD was communicating to me through you. God was telling me that HE will not abandon me, HIS child. You told me you are not the one curing me but GOD. Your words already healed me then as I have never spoken to any human who puts GOD above himself.

You have helped so many cancer patients, yet you are so humble and did not claim any credit for yourself but gave all to GOD as you believe HE did all the healing. You believe and witnessed many miracles. You helped reinstall my faith in GOD. I was lost but I found my way.

The last 4 photos showed my joy in knowing that it is not the end of the world. I will fight this battle with GOD’s help for my family, all who show me so much love and to you Dr Chris who brought life back to me.  

19 May 29012  Hi Dr Chris/Beng Im,

My husband Gerard, daughter Andrea and I would like to thank you both for the great hospitality on 17th May.

Prior to seeing you, I was lost and confused. I wanted very much to go ahead with chemo despite knowing that my chances of survival were extremely slim, if not zero. I am glad to have made the trip to Penang. You and your wife gave us so much warmth and love.

My faith in GOD has strengthened tremendously after hearing all your talks and stories. I felt like GOD was talking to me through you. I knew immediately then that if GOD brought me to this world so beautifully, why do I want to destroy the clean and pure body that he gave me with chemicals? We always say, Let Nature takes its course – so why don’t I let the herbs and plants from Nature and God Almighty heals me.

I have started taking all the herbs on 18 May and they are so sweet smelling, reminds me of what our parents used to give us when we were young. I didn’t feel any pain throughout the day except vomited once in the evening, probably receiving too many visitors and tired myself out.

I slept last night from 11pm to 3.30 am without taking any further painkiller. My sleep was probably disturbed by my colleague sms  telling me that she lost her job. I felt sorry for her as she is under great pressure.

This morning, Gerard and I went to the beach for a stroll. My back was aching but I feel so great now after taking your herbs. I have faith in all your herbs and GOD above will help me walk this difficult path too.

Thanks once again for everything Dr. Chris and I will continue to update you on my progress. May GOD Bless you and Beng Im always as this world needs you both to bring joy, hope and happiness.

Warmest regards
Corinna

22 May 2012  Good afternoon Dr Chris,

Guess who called me earlier? I was shocked that he called me personally — The Oncologist !!!!! He asked me why I didn’t follow up with him after seeing him last Monday 14 May. He said I should go for treatment as he thinks there is still hope for me (??????).

I told him I have decided to go for herbal and he repeated that I should reconsider chemo. He said he has read my blood and urine test and I should seriously consider chemo. He asked me to go down to his clinic for further advice as he feels I should give him a chance to talk to me.

I am surprised that someone who dashed my hope reversed his gear so fast. Suddenly he thinks there is hope when in the first place he didn’t even read all my test reports last week when I was in his clinic. I would have waivered if not for the faith you built in me. I am glad that I am strong enough to know what I myself want.

I have already put all my trust in GOD and in your herbs and I will stand by my own decision.

Today is my 5th day on your herbs and I am already feeling so much better. The pain has sudsided a lot and I am much stronger, happier and able to sleep well at night.

Once again I thank you very much for helping me and enlightening me in my most difficult time of my life.  

24 May 2012  Dear Dr Chris,

Thanks very much for your reply and great advice. I would like to update you on my progress as today is my 7th day taking yr herbs. For the past few days, I am able to go to the beach for a walk every morning for half to an hour. But when I am back, I will feel a little tired, on/off nauseous and some discomfort when I cough with spasms from my abdomen once or twice. Strangely thereafter, I would look forward to taking your herbs and every day after the first bowl, all my tiredness, nauseating and discomfort disappeared.

By noon, I become very lively and energetic and I don’t even feel that I’m sick. I know that the herbs are working well on me as my appetite has improved tremendously. I’m following the strict healthy diet recommended by your wonderful wife and I’m glad I have the discipline to do so.

Yes, you can go ahead and write my story even with my name / identity and face. There is no need to mask my “pretty” face – ha, ha, ha!!!! I give you my full approval. I believe God sent you to heal me as you give me so much joy and comfort at my darkest moment in my life when I’m lost and confused. I would have given up and surrendered if not for my prayers been answered by GOD to show me direction to find life again.

Tks vm

Warmest regards, Corinna

PC, 63-year-old female, had coughs for about three weeks. Then she developed fevers. She went to a hospital but the doctor could not find any wrong with her. She was sent home with a supply of Panadol (paracetamol). Not satisfied, PC went to a private hospital in Ipoh. A chest X-ray showed left pleural effusion (i.e. fluid in her left lung). The fluid was tapped out. An ultrasonography on 23 September 2009 showed a 2.6 cm lesion (suggestive of hepatoma or liver cancer) in the right lobe. In addition, there was underlying liver cirrhosis with portal hypertension and ascites. The spleen is enlarged. Biopsy of the lesion was not advisable in view of ascites, low platelet and the tumour site too deep and adjacent to the portal vein.

PC was asked to go home. There would be no treatment for her. She was also told that she had only two months to live.  Four days later, 27 September 2009, PC came to CA Care for help. She presented with the following:

  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Poor appetite
  • Tiredness
  • A bit of difficulty in breathing
  • Feeling of “muscle pull” in the chest once a while

PC came to see us after being told by one of our patients who had been doing well with our herbs.

We prescribed PC with Capsule A and B, Lung 1 and Lung 2 teas, Liver 1 and Liver 2 teas.  We reminded her that after taking the herbs for a few days, she might feel tired, have diarrhea, etc. This is a healing crisis and there is nothing to worry about – continue taking the herbs.

These are natural herbs with no additives. They have to be brewed. The taste and smell of the concoction are not going to be pleasant. PC replied: “If I want to get well, I have to drink them!”

Two months on the herbs, PC came back and told us that both her sleep and appetite had improved. Similarly her breathing had also improved. There was no more feeling of “muscle pull” in her chest. One year and four months later, on 14 January 2011, PC was still well. Below is the video recording of her visit that day.

Comments

After one and half years, PC was doing fine. Her blood test results did not show deterioration of her condition although some numbers are not good. Platelet count is low and we advised PC to take papaya leaf tea for a month or two. After that, go for another blood test. Hopefully her platelets will increase. PC is not keen to drink this tea because of its bitter taste!

Like most patients, PC is more interested to see if she can reduce the daily intake of her herbal teas! As much as we understand that it is really “difficult, bothering or even sickening” having to drink the awful tasting herbal concoctions, we told PC that she has no choice but to continue doing what she is doing. No change!

We have to remind PC of what happened when she went to see her doctors in September 2009. She was told that there would be no treatment for her. Just go home. She has only two months to live. Now PC has survived one and a half years without any problem. She is able to sleep well, her appetite is good and there is no pain. Life has been good all the while. What more can she ask for?  We reminded PC that she must learn to be grateful and thankful for what she is now. Taking “bitter” herbs is a small price to pay for being alive – and good life too!

Our message to PC and to all patients: Be well behaved if you want to live longer! And there is no point being alive if you think that drinking herbal teas is an intolerable chore. And above all, learn to be thankful and grateful for what you have and what you are.
