Brain Tumour: Amazing healing after four days on herbs

Eva is a 54-year-old Indonesian lady who had been having frequent headache for the past one year. Medication did not help her much. In late October 2018, she had a stroke. The limbs on the right side of her body were affected. She could not move her right arm but could move her right leg but not able to walk.

A CT scan showed a mass in her brain. The doctor prescribed Indexon which is actually a steroid, dexamethasone. A also took “mangosteen extract” (whatever that is).

For the past one month, Eva was in a serious vegetable-like state. She had to lie in bed, unable to talk and was totally unable to communicate or know what was going on around her. Her face was “blank” and she could not recognise anyone. She had headache on and off and she would moaned.

She was not hospitalised. Eva was just sent home and the doctor could not much for her.

Eva lived with the family of her sister-in-law. While socialising in the office, her sister-in-law shared Eva’s problem with a co-worker named David. David’s brother also had brain tumour. He underwent a surgery followed by radiotherapy. As a result he became blind. His suffered and was in bad shape — being unable to walk, etc. David’s brother eventually took our herbs and his health was back to normal but still remains blind. So David suggested that Eva follow our therapy.

On 9 November 2018, I received an email from David.

Good Afternoon Prof. How are you, I hope you are in good health. 

My family has stage 3 brain cancer according to the hospital. Man, I want herbal treatment so I refer to Prof. for herbal medicine. 

Just info prof. my sister will go to your place Tuesday. With my brother from Malaysia. And hand carry medical record (CT scan).

Eva’s sister-in-law came to our centre with the pictures below. I was devastated. How could I ever handle this case?

In our discussion that morning I laid out the following points clearly.

  1. This is a serious case. It did not happen only yesterday. The problem could have started some years ago. Then last year Eva’s condition deteriorated and she started to have headaches.
  2. What can we do now? Operation is not an option. That’s why Eva was sent home with only steroid medication.
  3. I am not god and I don’t want to play God either. Don’t expect the herbs to cure her. I have no magic bullet. So I really don’t know what I can do to help her.
  4. Our herbs are bitter and are difficult to take. You need to brew these teas. If she can swallow the capsules and drink the bitter tea, perhaps we can try. But if she cannot swallow and drink, there is nothing I can do.
  5. So you have to decide what you want to do. If you want give it a try I can prescribe you Capsule A, C, D and M. In addition Eva needs to drink Brain Tea 1 + PLM and Brain Tea 2. I can also give you SuperP — this is a plant-based protein supplement. Take these and let us see what happen. I can’t promise anything. Just try. But I know from experience that our Brain Teas are very good. I have helped many patients with these teas.
  6. Besides the herbs, you need to take care of the diet. Don’t eat anything with legs or that walks. That includes eggs or dairy products. Do not take sugar and oily food. No, you cannot take instant oat meal sold in the supermarket. That has sugar in it.
  7. If she gets well, please do not start eating “rubbish food” again. I know of many patients when they get well, the first thing they do is to start eating what they like. They conveniently forget what I told them. Please don’t do that.
  8. I expect her to suffer “healing crisis” in the next two weeks. She may vomit, may have more pain, etc. Don’t worry. Continue taking the herbs. Hopefully after three to four weeks the healing crisis goes away.
  9. After a month on the herbs, the only question I want to ask is, Do the herbs help you? Are you getting better?

At this point the sister-in-law asked: Do we need to go for another CT scan?

My answer: No, no. Don’t go for another CT scan. Do once is enough. Don’t have the illusion that the tumour is going to disappear after one month on herbs. If a CT scan were to show that the tumour is small or gone, I would not believe it! My herbs don’t do magic.

FOUR DAYS ON HERBS: Amazing healing

Eva’s sister-in-law came back to see us again three weeks later. She reported that Eva could talk and sing on the fourth day after taking the herbs! I told her I could not believe her story! Are you sure it is true? But I also know that with God’s blessing everything is possible. Thank God.

Watch to this video.

 

 

Chris: She took the herbs. Any problems? Can she drink those teas?

Sister-in-law: We remove the capsule and used the powder only. Yes, we prop her up and.she can take the herbs.

C: Bitter and awful taste — okay? She is not angry because she had to drink those herbs? In the first or second week after starting the herbs, did she suffer or have any problem.

S: Her condition improved and she can do the following:

  1. She can talk! Before the herbs she just had to lie down unable to communicate with anybody and is oblivious to her surroundings.  Four days after taking the herbs she can talk and communicate with us. She can even sing! She can talk and understand us. Yes she can answer questions.
  2. She can remember and recognize us. When friends come to visit she can recognize and greet them.
  3. She is able to sit down, before she had to lie down all day or had to be propped up.
  4. The pain and headache are almost gone. Before the herbs, she has pain on and off. When this is severe she moaned or screamed. No, she does not do this anymore.
  5. Her bowel movement is back to normal. Before the herbs, her stools are hard and we have to use our fingers to help “dig” it out.
  6. Her appetite is very much improved now.
  7. She has more energy.
  8. She can now move and lift up her right arm. Before, after the stroke she lost the ability to move her right arm.
  9. She can now walk slowly with help or support.
  10. Her facial expression looks good and fresh. She looks healthier.
  11. From day four until now, her health seems to be improving with each passing day.

C: This is indeed an amazing healing. I want to let you know that I cannot believe that story you have just told me. It does not seem to be possible. Four days on herbs and she gets better! It cannot be right. But I also know that with God everything is possible. So, let us be grateful to God for this blessing. Give thanks to God.

No, this story is too good to be true. God indeed helped her! Praise God. Go home and tell your pastor that.

But let me remind you that this is not a cure. You need to take care. Be careful and don’t do what is not right. Remember my advice, especially about the diet. Most patients when they just get well the first thing they do is go out and eat what they like.

Also continue to do what you are doing now. Don’t try to change anything. I must say I don’t know what else I can do to help her. So be patient. Healing takes time.

Comments

When Eva’s sister first came to seek our help, I must admit I was at a lost. Even after prescribing Eva the herbs, right down in my heart, I was not optimistic at all. Her condition is too serious. On top of that I was also not sure if she could take those bitter herbs or follow our instructions properly.

It is amazing that in such a depressing condition Eva took the herbs without any protest. Salute her for that!

Some patients, when told that the herbs are bitter or have awful taste, would automatically show their “sour faces or crooked nose” in protest. How to help such patients?

As much as I was NOT optimistic with this case, at the back of my mind, I also know that our Brain Teas are very good and have helped many patients. Even though Eva’s story is a big surprise and a big bonus, it is does not “shock” me. I have seen such miraculous healing before.

One case immediately comes to mind. This is about Prapti, a 21-year-old Indonesian lady. She had tumours in her brain and was lying comatose or unconscious in Jakarta’s Military Hospital. Medically she was written off. Everyone around her was just praying expecting her to die any time. A stranger passed by her ward and told her parents to try CA Care for help.

Prapti was fed our herbs. After two weeks she woke up from her “deep sleep” and was alive.

I had a chance to meet Prapti when I visited Jakarta. She had fully recovered (please, not cured!). She was such a sweet girl, and we decided to adopt her as our own daughter. I would make sure that she gets her supply of herbs. Prapti went on to study in a seminary and graduated.  One day Prapti expressed her desire to meet us again. Yes, we bought her the plane tickets to come and stay with us in Penang. Wonderful.

You may ask what had happened to Prapti now? This is a sad ending. After graduation Prapti became a pendeta or pastor. She decided to get married to her college mate, also a pendeta. Yes, we were okay with that but I did not foresee her problem coming. Prapti became pregnant. What do we do now? Continue taking the herbs? Will that affect the developing baby? I did not know because I have not encountered such a problem before. To be on the safe side, we decided she stop the herbs for while until the baby is born. Unfortunately, at the 7th month of her pregnancy the cancer struck her again. She became unconscious like before. She was admitted to the hospital and was on support system. They even made a hole in her throat to help her breathe. Prapti gave birth to her baby naturally while still in coma. Soon after the delivery, she died.

So, this is one bitter lesson I have learned. Ladies, by all means, get married but don’t get pregnant if you have cancer.

Living With Her Brain Tumour for Seventeen Years

lung-plabang

AK is a 51-year-old Indonesian lady. In 2000, when AK was 35 years old, she had two seizures. She was admitted to a hospital in Jakarta. A CT scan showed a 6.2 cm mass in her brain.

AK was asked to undergo an operation. The doctor said the tumour was too big and it had to be removed bit by bit, meaning AK has to undergo three operations to remove all the mass. The doctor gave her two weeks to decide. AK refused the surgery.

Up to this day, 17 years later, AK is still doing fine. She has been taking two drugs prescribed by the doctor.

  1. Phenytoin: this is an epileptic drug or anticonvulsant. This drug is used to control seizures.
  2. Nitrazepam: this medication is used to treat sleeping problem and also treat certain types of seizures.

AK had been on these two drugs for 17 years and they helped her. AK is a school teacher and she leads a normal life. But if she stressed herself too much she became tired and need to rest.

Since AK had been taking these drugs for so many years, she felt she wanted to try some herbals and get out of these drugs. To this I cautioned AK that she should continue to take the drugs since they have been helpful for her. Why go for herbs?

Before coming to see us, AK went for a CT/MRI of her brain (below).

composite

The mass measures 6.2 x 4.3 x 4.3 cm. It did not grow any bigger since the past 17 years. No biopsy was ever done, but according to the medical report this is a right parietal meningioma.

This is the recording of our meeting that morning.

 

 

This is the message I had for AK and her husband.

Chris: I am very impressed with your current condition. You have been living with your brain tumour for the past seventeen years. Did you suffer any problems during this time?

AK: I could lead a normal life. I am a teacher and I am still teaching. But when there was too much stress I felt tired. So I had to rest. Then everything was okay after that.

C: As I have said, I am really, really impressed. Then why do you come and see me? I don’t think you need to take my herbs. Just continue to do what you are doing.

Information from the Internet

You can go into the internet and learn more about meningioma.

http://neurosurgery.ucla.edu/meningioma-brain-tumor

http://www.webmd.com/cancer/brain-cancer/meningioma-causes-symptoms-treatment#1

  • A meningioma is a tumor that forms on membranes that cover the brainand spinal cord just inside the skull.
  • These tumors are often slow-growing. As many as 90% are benign (not cancerous) with low potential to spread.
  • But the growth of benign meningiomas can cause serious problems. In some cases, such growth can be fatal.
  • But some meningiomas are classified as atypical. These are not considered either benign or malignant (cancerous). They may become malignant. A small number of meningiomas are cancerous. They tend to grow quickly. They can also spread to other parts of the brainand beyond, often to the lungs.
  • Meningioma tumors can become quite large. Diameters of 2 inches (5 cm.) are not uncommon.
  • Meningiomas represent about 20 percent of all tumors originating in the head and 10 percent of tumors of the spine.

Symptoms

Because most meningiomas grow very slowly, symptoms often develop gradually, if they develop at all. The most common symptoms include: headaches, seizures, blurred vision, weakness in arms and legs, numbness and speech problems.

Treatment

There are three basic options: observation, surgical removal, and radiation.

Observation: Meningiomas are often slow growing, increasing in size only 1-2 mm per year. If the tumor is not causing any symptoms or not impacting on quality of life, observation is often recommended. Symptoms like seizures can be controlled with medication.

Surgery:  If the tumor’s growth threatens to cause problems or if symptoms begin to develop, surgery may be necessary. Meningioma surgery varies from relatively straightforward to highly complex, sometimes requiring multiple surgeons from different specialties. But surgery carries significant risk of side effecta that can decrease quality of life.

Radiation: This can slow or stop the growth of meningiomas. But younger patients (less than 50 years of age) need to be counselled about the risk of developing radiation-induced cancer ten or more years after radiation treatment. 

Prognosis

Surgery: For tumors in favorable locations, up to 85% of meningiomas are curable with surgery. Location, the amount of the tumor left after surgery, and the skill of the neurosurgeon are the important elements in predicting a successful result.

Radiation: Stereotactic radiosurgery stops the growth of meningiomas in up to 80 percent of cases.

 

 

Brain Tumour: No to Surgery

tea

Jenny (not real name) is a 35-year-old Indonesian lady from one of the islands of Riau. For about six months she had been having headache and dizziness. Om 23 May 2016, she went to a hospital in Tanjung Pinang (Indonesia) and did a CT scan. There was a tumour in her brain.

brain-tumour-yeni-singkep

The doctor suggested surgery to remove the tumour. Jenny’s family refused surgery. Jenny was sent home with the following medications:

  1. Kalium diklofenak
  2. Citicoline
  3. Lansoprazole
  4. Ramtidin
  5. Beta histinemesilate
  6. Pheytonin sodium
  7. Methylpredinsolone

Jenny’s husband came to know about CA Care and came to seek our help.

 

Our Advice

  1. It was indeed a “hard” morning, having to face such a case.
  2. From what I could guess from the pictures, the tumour in the brain is really big. And I really don’t know what to say. If you come and see me hoping to find a cure, then I must say right away that I cannot cure your wife. But if come here to find help, maybe we can help.
  3. You turned down the doctor’s suggestion of an operation. Surgery may not cure her and she may end up with more problems later. Over the years I have seen many of such pathetic results of surgery. So I would not push you to go for surgery.
  4. But on the other hand, to tell you not to go for surgery does not sound right. Anyway, you have decided not to go for surgery and I think you have made a wise decision.
  5. However, if you decide to change your mind and want to go for operation, then go to Singapore. Perhaps your chances of getting better results is higher a bit. But I know this could mean having to spend a lot of money. Husband replied: Yes, we cannot afford such treatment in Singapore.
  6. Now, we have no choice. I would take on this case with the understanding that you know beforehand that herbs cannot cure your wife’s brain cancer. Herbs may be able to help her — yes, that may be possible.
  7. I am not “plucking this kind of hope” from thin air. Over the years, I have seen that our herbs and our therapy did help brain cancer patients.

  1. So what is your decision? Husband: Please help us. We want to try your herbs.

 

Jenny was prescribed Capsule A, C, D and M besides taking Brain 1 and Brain 2 teas.

About three months later, we received an email from Jenny’s husband. This is what he wrote:

Nyeri kepala sudah mulai berkurang walaupun masih ada sedikit sedikit
Tidak muntah muntah lagi
Sudah masuk kerja walaupun tidak setiap hari
Badan sudah mulai berisi dan ada tenaga
Bicara sudah mulai lancar

Keluhan sekarang penglihatan masih agak kurang terang, masih kabur.

Jenny’s condition had improved, in spite of not undergoing the brain surgery. What is most encouraging is that her health did not deteriorate — this perhaps is the most important point to note. She is not getting worse. After taking the herbs, the frequent day long headache had subsided, she did not vomit anymore. She was able to go back and work on and off (not everyday yet). She had more energy and started to gain weight (which I think is not important! But to the Indonesians, it is important). Before the herbs Jenny had difficulty talking, fumbling to form words. And now, according to her husband, her speech is now going back to normal. Unfortunately, her blurred / double vision still persist.

In an earlier posting, https://cancercaremalaysia.com/2016/10/09/brain-cancer-operation-radiation-blind-after-two-weeks/, thirty-two-year-old Amar underwent an operation and radiotherapy for his brain cancer. Two weeks after the treatment, Amar was blind.

Jenny did not do anything invasive. She only took the bitter herbs and took care of her diet. Now she is still doing fine. Praise God for this blessing, We pray that she continues to improve with time. We cannot ask for more.

 

 

 

Brain Tumour: An Amazing Healing Experience

AN is a 33-year-old Indonesia. About 5 years ago he started to have headaches (but no vomiting or double vision). The problem dragged on until January 2014 when AN had a seizure at 4 a.m. He became unconscious. He woke up to find himself in the hospital. MRI showed a 4.0 x 4.2 x 4.6 cm tumour in his brain.

Brain-Andy

According to the doctor it was an Astrocytoma. AN was referred to a neurologist who said operation was not indicated. He  only prescribed AN anti-seizure medication.

In February 2014, AN came to a hospital in Penang for further consultation. He was told to undergo an operation to remove the tumour. This would cost RM 25,000. In addition AN was told that after the surgery he might end up paralysed or may even lose his speech totally — i.e. become dumb. AN declined surgical intervention.

AN went for Helmet Therapy (terapi helm) offered by an alternative healer in Java. AN paid IDR 11 million for the helmet which he had to wear on his head. It is supposed to “kill” the cancer cells. AN used this helmet for about one and a half years.

Did the therapy helped you? AN replied: Not sure if it was good or not for me. This is because he used to have a seizure once a month, and later it progressed to once every 2 weeks and then once a week. Also the tumour had gone bigger, 4.3 x 4.7 cm. This is in spite of using the helmet.

AN explained that before the Helmet Therapy, the right side of his head and body were affected during the seizure.  But after the Helmet Therapy, only his head was affected. The head was pulled towards the right. The seizure usually lasted 30 seconds to a minute. His left eye became swollenl and the eye lid became narrower.

In addition to the Helmet Therapy, AN also took Soursop leaf tea and Rodent tuber capsule (not from CA Care).

During AN’s first visit to our centre, he presented with:

  • Headache after waking up in the morning.
  • Eyes felt numb. This lasted for about 4 hours, every morning.
  • Sometimes felt dizzy and this may last for 3 days, all day long.
  • Nose blocked after waking up and lasted until 9 a.m.
  • Humming sound in left ear for about 4 hours.
  • Unable to sleep well.
  • Sometime had difficulty breathing if sleeping flat on the back.
  • He felt tired easily.

TWO MONTHS LATER – an amazing healing experience

AN and his wife walked into our centre. I could not recognised AN. He looked good and told us that his health had improved!

  • Headache was much lighter. Before the herbs his head felt heavy and tight.
  • Eye numbness lasted only an hour as opposed to 4 hours before.
  • He was able to sleep very well.
  • Ear humming only about 1 hour a day.
  • Blocked left nose only once a week, not every day like before. Also after an hour, the blockage disappeared.
  • Seizure became mild but occurred every day instead of once a week. During seizure it only involved pulling of the facial muscle and lasted about 30 seconds.
  • No more draining of energy after seizure.

Healing Crisis

We had warned AN that he might suffer healing crisis in the first week after starting the herbs. We told AN: Please don’t call or email us if this happen. There is nothing we can do about this. Everyone has to go through this crisis! But the healing crisis will gradually go away after a few days.

Indeed, AN suffered severe headaches for a few days after drinking the herbs. He was unable to work and had to sleep all day. In fact his headache had become more serious! Although he was so afraid and uncertain of what to do next, he dared not call us because we had told him not to do that!

After a week, the healing crisis started to subside and his condition started to improve. By the third week, AN felt well again. And his condition improved much more than before taking the herbs.

AN shared his experiences in the videos below (speaking in Bahasa Indonesia). We would like to thank AN for his permission to use these videos without having to hide his identity.

Helping a Six-Year-Old with Cancer of the Brain Stem

Ros (S-321) is 6-years old. For about a year, when she was 5 years old, she had been vomiting and having headaches. In December 2012, her parent brought her to the hospital where a CT scan was performed. The doctor in Aceh, Indonesia said there was a tumour in her brain. It was not operable. Ros was asked to go to Jakarta for further treatment.

Her parent decided to bring her to Kuala Lumpur instead.  MRI performed on 14 December 2012 indicated a well-defined mass measuring 3.2 x 3.5 x 2.9 cm, compressing onto the adjacent 4th ventricle. The lateral and 3rd ventricles were dilated. This was diagnosed as pontine tumour.

Composite

The doctor said the tumour was not operable and there was also no medication for her. Back in Aceh, Ros’s parent started her  on herbs like Soursop leave tea, Sarang Semut, etc.

On 20 January 2013, her father came to Penang to seek our help. Surprisingly, Ros did not have much symptoms. She would only suffer headaches if she had fevers. She had squint or cock eyes, otherwise she was alright.

 

 

Ros was prescribed Capsule A, Brain Tea 1 and 2 plus C-tea and Brain Leaf. Due to her age, she was asked to take only at half dosage. We warned her father that the herbs are bitter and his daughter might have difficulty taking them. His reaction was, We will try.

 

 

Our Herbs Helped Her

To our surprise Ros’s auntie came back to see us on 22 February 2013 – a month after taking the herbs. Ros did not have difficulty drinking the bitter and awful tasting herbal teas! And she had improved. There were no more fevers. Her eye movements had improved. There no more headaches or vomiting. Indeed the herbs had helped Ros tremendously.

There was one problem though! The family wanted Ros to bring fried bananas to school. Our answer was, Absolutely no! No fried stuff.  Since taking our herbs, Ros seemed to have frequent urination at night. Sometimes she even urinated in bed without knowing. Since Ros did not come to see us, there was nothing we could do to assess her bladder energy using the AcuGraph. We suggested that we would let the problem take care of itself.

Two months later, i.e. 26 April 2013 (and Ros was already 3 months on our herbs), Ros’s father came to see us again. He was happy and said that Ros had improved tremendously. Her eyes seemed to be normal now. If she reads too much then her eyes become juling (cockeye or squint). Otherwise she is okay. Since taking the herbs Ros did not have any more headaches. She did not vomit either.

The family had solved the problem of her night urination! If Ros were to take the herbal teas way pass 6 p.m. she would urinate frequently at night. If she was to take all teas before 6 p.m. there would be no urination problem!

 

 

Current Medical Knowledge About Pontine Cancer and Its Treatment

The brain stem consists of the midbrain, pons and medulla as shown in the diagram below.

brain pons

About Pontine Glioma

  • Pontine gliomas are cancerous tumours that originate from the part of the brain known as the pons or the brain stem. It is often referred to as diffuse pontine glioma.
  • This cancer accounts for 10 to 15 percent of all childhood brain tumours. They rarely occur in adults.
  • It affected children aged 5 to 10 years old but it can occur at any age in childhood.
What is the cause of this cancer?

Currently there is no answer!

Prognosis

  • It is a highly aggressive and difficult to treat brain tumor.
    • Prognosis is poor.
    • Survival past 12 to 14 months is uncommon.

Symptoms

Each child may experience symptoms differently.

Pontine tumors affect the cranial nerves, causing symptoms related to the nerves that supply the muscles of the eye and face, and muscles involved in swallowing. This may give rise to symptoms such as:

  • double vision,
  • squints  ( a condition where the eyes point in different directions. One eye may turn inwards, outwards, upwards or downwards while the other eye looks forward.
  • inability to close the eyelids completely,
  • dropping one side of the face,
  • facial weakness,
  • problems chewing and swallowing.

The tumor also affects the “long tracks” of the brain, with resultant

  • weakness of the arms or legs and difficulty with speech and walking.
  • weakness in the arms and legs
  • problems with walking and coordination
  • difficulty with tasks like handwriting
  • changes in personality and behaviour.

Tumors may also block the flow of cerebrospinal fluid in the brain, causing increased pressure with headaches and vomiting resulting in:

  • headaches,
  • nausea and vomiting.

Symptoms usually worsen rapidly because the tumor is rapidly growing.

Treatments options
  • Radiation therapy. Radiation therapy has been the main treatment approach.  The patients’ symptoms often improve dramatically during or after six weeks of irradiation. Unfortunately, problems usually recur after six to nine months, and progress rapidly.
  • Experimental chemotherapy.
  • Surgery is not generally possible because these tumors are widely spread within the brain stem and cannot be removed. Surgery may be possible in the few patients where the tumor is very localized. Surgical resection is not an option because of where the tumor is located. Surgery in this part of the brain can cause severe neurological damage.

According to from the Dana-Faber Cancer Institute, Boston, USA,  website many specialized brain tumor treatment centers have now specialists who deliver complementary or alternative medicines. These treatments, which may help control pain and side effects of therapy include the following.

  • acupuncture/acupressure
  • therapeutic touch
  • massage
  • herbs
  • dietary recommendations.

Brain Tumour: Herbs and e-Therapy Helped Him

Ron (s24-not real name) is a 22-year-old male from Indonesia. About two years ago he felt numbness in his right leg but did not do anything about it. Then in June 2011, Ron had seizure in his right leg. The seizure attack lasted about 20 to 25 minutes. Ron suffered about three seizures per week. However, his right leg felt numb every day.

A CT scan in Indonesia showed tumour in his brain. Ron and his parents came to a private hospital in Penang in August 2011. MRI of his brain was done and similarly confirmed the presence of left fronto-parietal lobe tumour with cystic central necrosis. The lesion measures about 6 x 6.2 x 6.7 cm in size.

 

Ron was asked to go to Kuala Lumpur to consult with another specialist. Another brain MRI was performed.  The report dated 22 August 2011 indicated a 7.5 x 6.5 cm mass in the left fronto-parietal region with involvement of the motor cortex. There is also involvement in the sensory cortex.

The doctor suggested a biopsy which the family refused to do. According to the doctor, the mass cannot be removed by surgery. Ron was asked to undergo radiotherapy which the family also declined. A 25-radiation-treatment would cost RM 25,000. Ron was told the following:

  1. Even with radiation, the treatment would not cure him.
  2. Radiation may just shrink the tumour.
  3. Ron will have to come back to Penang again after 9 months and do another MRI. If the tumour grows bigger, he needs more radiation.

Ron was prescribed four drugs: Levetiracetam, Phenytoin (both for epilepsy),  Dexamethasone (steroid) and Lansoprazole (for ulcer and reflux to take care of the side effects of the medications). He did not take these drugs after coming to see us on 26 August 2011. Ron was prescribed: Capsule A, Brain 1 and brain 2 tea, C-tea + Brain Leaf tea.  At the same time Ron underwent e-Therapy. After only a few days, his condition improved tremendously.

Listen to our conversation.

 

 

Part 1: 

  • After a week on herbs, Ron’s health improved significantly. There was no more muscle spasm or numbness in his right leg. There was no more full blown seizure. According to his father, Ron’s facial expression was much better. He looked healthier and he felt better too.
  • I reminded Ron and his father that our herbs are no magic potion. Don’t expect instant cure. Ron will have to take care of his diet and take the herbs regularly.
  • The father asked, “Can we try your e-Therapy?” Yes, if you want to!

 

 

Part 2:

  • Before a seizure, I had muscle cramp. Muscle cramp means numbness in my leg. Seizure means violent jerking of my leg. Before a seizure sets in, I felt the numbness of my leg first followed by violent jerking of my leg and sometimes even the upper part of my body. I was not able to stand upright and needed to lie down flat   wherever I happened to be. Sometimes, I also fainted.
  • I had muscle cramps everyday and this could last the whole day. But this numbness did not necessarily result in a seizure. But sometimes, there was a seizure. My leg jerked violently. This lasted for about 20 to 25 minutes. My heart pumped rapidly. My whole body was drained off energy and I felt tired after this. Sometimes I also sweated.
  • The doctor prescribed four medications. These helped but I still had seizure once even with the medications.
  • When I started to take the herbs, I stopped taking the doctor’s medications. I have no more full blown seizure. Even if a seizure seemed to come, it went off after five minutes. My heart did not beat rapidly anymore, like before.
  • Father: His leg still felt numb but the jerking of his leg had stopped. After taking the herbs, his health had improved tremendously.
  • Chris: Take care of your diet. Don’t worry about the initial loss of your weight. You will get back your weight after a while.

Ron came to Penang again in March 2012. He had another MRI. MRI report dated 9 March 2012 stated: The tumour is still present in this current MRI and the size is 6.7 x 6 x 6 cm. There was no significant change in size compared to previous MRI. Findings suggestive of low grade glioma. (Note: previous size was stated as 6 x 6.2 x 6.7 cm).

Some Points to Ponder

  1. After six months without any medical treatment and with only herbs, the tumour did not grow bigger. Why? Could it grow smaller with time?
  2. Ron was not on any doctor’s medication but his health improved – no more serious seizure! Does this not prove that the herbs are effective?
  3.  What do you think could happen if Ron were to undergo radiation treatment as suggested by the doctor?
  4. Why do you think patients (even rural folks!) do not readily follow or accept their doctors’ advice when it comes to chemotherapy, radiotherapy or surgery for cancer?
