Pancreatic cancer: Declined surgery and chemo. Seven years on and doing just great! Indeed a miracle.

A 35-year-old man came into our centre one morning in November 2018. His first words were: Pak Baktia sent you his salam (greetings). I am his nephew.

Chris: His nephew! How is Baktiar doing?

Nephew: He is doing very well. In fact he is much healthier me.

C: Amazing. When he first came here, his skin was dark, his whole body was itchy. He is really lucky and blessed. Perhaps one day I shall go to Aceh and visit him.

What is so special about this patient? 

Seven Years Ago Baktia came to CA Care for Help 

Baktia, 56 years old, was diagnosed with cancer of the pancreatic head and uncinate process with distal CBD (biliary duct) obstruction. 

He declined surgery but underwent ERCP (Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography). Three plastic stents (tube) were installed to help with the flow of the bile.

After the ERCP, Bak refused chemotherapy. He came to seek our help on 10 April 2011.

He presented with the following:

  • Severe itch throughout the whole body
  • His skin was dark
  • No appetite
  • Fever
  • Unable to sleep
  • Diarrhoea
  • Yellow urine

Bak was put on the e-Therapy. After one session of the e-Therapy, the itch was reduced. After two sessions, his itch was reduced by 50 percent. After four sessions his itch was totally gone.

Bak had fever. After taking a glass of Appetite & Fever tea, his fever was resolved.

He went home to Aceh.

Bak had to return to his surgeon every six months to change the plastic stent (tube).

On 5 October 2011, Bak said since taking the herbs in April 2011, his health had improved. He felt more comfortable, his sleep was better and he felt more energetic.

Previously he had to wake up four to five times a night to urinate. After taking the A-Kid-6 tea his urination frequency has reduced to only once a night.

A blood test done on 5 October 2011 showed improvements in his GGT, AST and CA 19.9 (Table, Column 3).

FOUR YEARS LATER

January 2015: almost four years later, Bak’s wife came to our centre. Our first question to her was, How is Bak doing now? Is he okay?

Wife: Thanks be to God. He can drive around, everywhere.

C: Before he came here, was he able to drive?

W: No, I was the one driving.

C: So, he is healthy now?

W: Yes, healthy.

C: Has he gone back to see his doctor?

W: Yes. The stent had been removed and there was no need to replace it anymore.

C: How many times did he need to change the stent?

W: Every six months, we need to change a new stent. So we did this twice a year. In August 2014, the doctor said no need to put in a new stent anymore. If he is jaundiced, then come back to the hospital immediately.

C: All these years, didn’t  the doctor push him to do chemo?

W: I told the doctor that my husband was on herbs. I asked the doctor if this was okay. He replied, “I don’t know” and he just smiled. The doctor knew that my husband was taking your herbs. I told him.

Kidney Tumour Shrunk: Amazing healing, amazing grace!

On 1 April 2011, James (not real name), a 53-year-old Singaporean, walked into our centre asking for help. He had just gone for a routine medical checkup. The doctor found a 4.1 x 3.3 cm nodular mass in his left kidney. Since no biopsy was done, we cannot be sure if it was cancer or not, although the report said, “a renal neoplasm cannot be excluded.”

What was James going to do now?

James said his doctor suggested surgery to remove the tumour.  I told James that operation was the best option for his long-term survival. But James did not want any surgery — he believed in natural healing!

I requested James to go home first and think properly — take my advice, Go for surgery! However, if he was so a hundred sure that he did not want to go for surgery then he could come back to see again. James went home empty handed!

Six days later, James flew in from Singapore again. He had made up his mind. He did not want to go for any medical treatment. He wanted to follow our CA Care Therapy.

James presented with the following:

  • Severe pain in the hip and back.
  • Disturbed sleep — total sleep only about 3 to 4 hours each night.
  • Stomach wind.
  • Burning sensation when urinating.
  • Nose block (one side).

He was prescribed herbs.

 

On The Right Healing Path 

One month on the herbs and e-Therapy, James came back to see us again.

He felt better. His severe pains in the hip back was gone after the e-therapy. His sleep improved — 5 to 6 hours of uninterrupted sleep each night. No more stomach gas. Two days on the herbs, no more burning sensation when urinating. Nose block was also gone.

James was on the right healing path. And he was real pleased.

Two years later, James came to our centre and reported that he was doing fine. His doctor was following the progress of his tumour growth. So far so good. The tumour had not grown bigger, in fact the size had shrunk slightly. 

Date Size  
14 Feb 2011 4.1 x 3.3 x 2.9 cm Before CA Care Therapy
28 June 2011 4.0 x 3.1 x 2.9 cm  
19 October 2011 3.3 x 3.0 x 2.9 cm  
4 June 2013 3.5 x 2.7 x 2.8 cm  
12 December 2013 3.2 x 3.0 x 2.8 cm  

I told James that was great — I would worry if the tumour had grown in size. We shall try to keep it that way. The wonderful thing was, James’ health had improved tremendously and he was free from pain! Can’t ask for more.

Listen to our conversation in this video.

 

Seven Years Later:  Amazing healing, amazing grace! 

What a surprise, James came to our centre one morning in May 2018, i.e. seven years after his first visit. 

James said he is healthy all these years. Over these seven years he had to take antibiotics only once. This was because of tooth infection. Other than that he was not on any medication — he was only on our herbs and the e-Therapy.

According to the latest USG of his kidney, the tumour is still there but it had shrunk by 40 percent.  This is indeed good news.

Listen to our conversation that morning. 

 

Chris: When your doctor realised that the tumour had gone smaller, did he ever asked what you did? 

James: I told him I was on herbs. He noted that down. He is not an oncologist. He is a kidney specialist who took care of me all these years.

C: All the while, you were on our therapy and also the e-Therapy, did you also take any other medication?

J: No, no. I kept as much as possible to your therapy. I came here, I believed and that’s it.

C: Who asked you to come here in the first place?

J: Some Indonesians.

C: How do they know us?

J: The Indonesians know more about you than anybody else! They gave me two addresses. One, a Chinese chap in Kuala Lumpur. I went to see him, but no. Then I came to see you.

C: After you came here — did you have any doubt at all about our therapy?

J: No, I just believe.

C: Why did you believe right away — just jump straight into the hole?

J: I read a lot before I came here. You are just telling us the plain truth.

Comments 

Many people who read this story may have the impression that we have “magic potion” to make the tumour or cancer go away. Far from it. When James first came to us, I specially warned him that it would be crazy for me to say that “my herbs can make your kidney tumour go away.”

The best option for James was to go for an operation and have his kidney removed.

Based on this story, does it mean that if you have a lump in your breast or a tumour in your colon, you can escape surgery? No. I would not see you if you do not go and have the tumour removed first i.e., if the cancer is in an early stage and has not spread yet. Yes, I have sent many patients to see the surgeons first before following our therapy.

So, why the exception in James’ case? He did not go for surgery! Remember, at the beginning, I sent James home without any herbs.

But barely a week later, James appeared again and he was adamant that surgery was not what he wanted. I had to respect what his “heart says”. In this case, I am glad that it turned out that I was wrong and James was right!

Let me remind all of you are reading this. All of you want the tumour or cancer to go away. All of you don’t want to undergo surgery, but are you prepared to be like James? No, most patients come to “shop” for an easy and cheap way out. They are not prepared to do what it takes to heal themselves.

Over the years, I have learned that only 30 percent of those who come are sincere and serious enough in wanting to find their healing. The remaining 70 percent are patients who cannot be helped. I repeat, cannot be helped. They want healing on their own terms. Their excuses: The herbs are bitter — give me capsule only! I have no time to brew the herbs. If cannot eat laksa, life is not worth living. What if I was invited for a wedding dinner? What if I want to travel — can I not take the herbs for a while?

That’s it — putting in minimum effort, wanting maximum benefit.

 

 

Pain gone, Slept well, Went shopping

Part 3: Four days on CA Care Therapy

22 July 2017: Dear Mr. Chris kh Teo,

Hi there, My name is M and I have pancreatic cancer with metastasis to the liver and lung. I found your web site while I’m searching for alternative medication for my cancer. I’m a Filipino but residing here in Australia. I am interested to try your herbal medicine. I want to know how could I get it.

Do I need to come there in Malaysia or can you ship your herbal medicine here in Australia. Or can I see you personally so that you could discuss to me all the information that I need to know. If I need to come there in Malaysia can you book me an appointment as soon as possible. Is there any fees do we need to pay and how much does it cost to buy your herbal medicine

Hope you can give me more information about your herbal medicine and hope to see you soon.

Reply: There is NO cure for such cancer —- I am not sure if you even travel  with such condition … the best is for you to send someone to come and see me …. that someone must know your health condition ….then I can give the herbs …. Chris

Dear Dr. Chris Teo,

I am able to travel to see you. I’m still in good condition as of now. I will travel with my husband. Is there any specific day and time that I can visit you?  Please I really want to see you.

Reply: Are you from Sydney / Melb / Perth? My concern is the air travel — too taxing. But if you want to come — I am okay. Monday to Friday at about 11 am ….. go to my website www.CancerCareMalaysia.com and click what to do next . You get all the details.

I need to see all medical reports and scans …. and then please read this.

 Some important points for you to know before you see me

  1. NO CURE FOR CANCER  

a) Most patient who come here, have already undergone medical treatments – surgery, radiation or chemo. Do these cure you?

b) If you come here expecting me to cure you, know that I too cannot cure your cancer. From my experience, NO one on earth can cure any cancer. After some years cancer comes back again!

c) But if you want me to help you – to give you another option, to have a better quality of life   — may be it is possible. But it all depends on you. Because your health is your responsibility. Are you willing to help yourself? Are you willing to change your lifestyle, your diet, etc.? 

2. OUR HERBS ARE BAD-TASTING, AND HAVE AWFUL SMELL

a) Besides the bad taste and smell.

b) You need to boil the herbs a few times a day — that’s a lot of work!

c) You need to take two, three or four types of teas each day.

3. YOU MUST TAKE CARE OF YOUR DIET – YOU CANNOT EAT ANYTHING YOU LIKE

a) You cannot eat anything that walks – meaning, no meat, no egg, no milk, etc.

b) Don’t take sugar (sugar is food for cancer).

c) Don’t eat oily or fried food, table salt. 

4. TRY OUR THERAPY FOR TWO TO FOUR WEEKS

a) May be the first 2 weeks on our therapy, you may suffer more pain, more tired, etc. That’s healing crisis. Don’t stop. Hopefully after 3 to 4 weeks you may feel better.

b) If after a month on our therapy you still don’t feel better — the herbs are not helping you in anyway — then stop following our therapy. Please ask someone else to help you.

c) If you feel better, continue with our therapy.

If you are still on chemo or radiotherapy (or are planning to do chemo or radiotherapy), or are taking other treatments elsewhere, go ahead and continue with these treatments first, do not take our herbs yet.

Good morning Dr. Teo. I am from Perth.  Me and my husband would love to travel to see you. We will try to get flight the soonest as possible maybe this week or early next week. I just have one question do we need to stay there while I’m taking your medication or can we go back to Australia and bring the medication here.

Thank you very much may God Bless You always.

Reply: Just see me for an hour or two … you can take the herbs home and start taking them at home ….. so one or two days in Penang is good enough.

Pain gone, Slept well, Went shopping

 

Our advice

Update

 Mei’s pain was gone and she became a “normal” person — can eat, can sleep, etc. just after a day in Penang! Is this a placebo effect?

After returning home to Australia, Mei wrote: Thank God… I’ve been drinking the tea for 5 days now so far I don’t have any problem I don’t have any pain. I’m still in good condition. Thank you very for your concern.

 

 

He Gets to Keep His Prostate

Budi, in his mid-sixties, had problems with urination in 1996. The doctor suspected BPH – Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia. He was prescribed Proscar. This medication was effective and Budi took this for about 2 years. With the medication, his PSA readings were normal.

Date PSA
June 1997 0.86
November 1999 0.67
November 2001 0.95
October 2002 1.02
May 2004 1.32
May 2006 1.22
November 2007 2.26

 

In 2008, Budi was prescribed Avodart, a stronger medicine, according to the doctor. He was on this drug for a year. With time, his PSA started to increase.

Date PSA
May 2009 2.13
May 2011 7.7
June 2011 8.0
July 2011 11.97

The doctor suspected something was not right and did a digital examination on Budi. There was no swelling. Budi refused to perform a biopsy because according to him he would not want to undergo any form of medical treatments  after that. No, he would not what to have his prostate or testes removed. Neither would he agree to chemotherapy or radiation.  Budi told us that his relative had his prostate removed but the PSA still kept going up after eight years.

 

 

Budi came to see us in July 2011 and was started on the herbs. He also bought an e-Therapy machine for use at home. It has been 5 years now and Budi is doing fine — as healthy as ever. The best part of the deal is he gets to keep his prostate! Below are his PSA readings over the years.

 

PSA after herbs

 

From 11.97 his PSA started to decline. In January 2015 it was 4.6. Because things went on so well for Budi, he started to eat some “forbidden” foods. In March 2016, Budi realised his misadventure. His PSA shot up to 8.0. Budi said he already knew why the PSA was high. Now, I am already back to my “good diet” again.

 

 

Lung-Bone-Brain Cancer: Pain Gone After 4 days of e-Therapy

Patient, 66-year-old, was diagnosed with lung cancer that had spread to her bones and brain. She had undergone radiotherapy, took Iressa and later switched to Tarceva but the treatments failed her. After 9 months of medical treatment she decided to try out our CA Care Therapy.

Patient led a miserable life. She was constantly in pain and had difficulty sleeping. Patient, her husband and daughter came to CA Care Penang on 8 June 2014. She was started on the e-Therapy. After 4 days, her pains were gone!

Listen to her story.

 

 

Patient was in pain for 2 weeks before coming to see us in Penang.

Nature of her pain:

  • Poking pain in the left rib.
  • Pain radiated from front to the back.

  • The pain now is a bit less than what she experienced while at home before the e-Therapy.
  • Good appetite.

Day Three

Daughter: (The e-Therapy)… It is very good. At night no pain, the whole day no pain. Very good mood. Very good appetite. Happy.

Chris: You can’t ask for more!

Prostate Cancer: When All Is Well Health Deteriorated – Severe Pains and Walking Difficulty – WHY?

CN (H878) is a 61-year-old male. For the past four or five years he suffered urine blockage.  The doctor prescribed Xatral, a medication to treat the symptoms of enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH). No one bothered to check his PSA. Xatral apparently helped resolve his problem.

In October 2009, he started to have backpain in addition to urine blockage. On 25 March 2011 his PSA was at 991.90. This alarmed his doctor. The doctor told him that CN had prostate cancer.

A biopsy was done on 29 March 2011 but the result indicated no malignancy. A second biopsy was done on 5 April 2011. Again it was negative for malignancy although benign prostatic hyperplasia was indicated.

Due to the severe backpain, MRI was done and showed L4 vertebra was more sclerotic than the other vertebrae. A biopsy was done of the L4 and the result indicated metastatic carcinoma consistent with a primary from the prostate. His PSA then was at 1018.

1 Biopsy-reports

2 Bone-MRI

3 PSA-values

 

CN was subsequently treated with Lucrin injection (RM 1,300 per month per injection). He also took the oral drug, Casodex (RM 21 per tablet /day).  The treatment brought down his PSA level from the initial level of 991 to 0.2 within six months. Unfortunately, after six months, the PSA started to rise again from 0.2 to 25.1 in May 2012 (Table below).

CN was asked to undergo chemotherapy. He refused. CN came to seek our help on 11 May 2012.

 

 

Declined Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy

Chris: The doctor asked you to go for chemo and radiotherapy – you want that?

Patient: No, don’t want. No point.

C: Why no point?

Daughter: No meaning!

C: Why no meaning?

Daughter: He is taking these medications that the doctor gave and he already suffered.

C:  Do you have friends or relatives who had gone for chemo or radiotherapy – were they cured?

D: Cannot cure.

P:  I know of two friends. About two months ago one of them, aged 67, had colon cancer. After operation he did chemo for four times. The doctor asked him to go home – six months later, he died. There was another one, 51 years old. He had skin cancer. He received radiation but there was one more tumour which could not be treated. He had chemo – four times, he also died.

C: So two friends went for chemo – they all died. So you don’t want to follow them?

When CN came to see us on 11 May 2012, he presented with the following:

  1. He was unable to sleep – remaining awake till 4 to 5 a.m. each night.
  2. He had backache.
  3. He had no strength and found it difficult to even bend forward.
  4. He had difficulty moving his left arm.
  5. He suffered hot flushes and felt “heaty” in his body.

CA Care Therapy

CN was prescribed Capsule A, deTox tea, Prostate A, Prostate B, Bone and Pain Tea. He was also given Menopause Pill for his hot flushes.  He was told to abide by our recommended diet. After two weeks, he returned and told us that he was happy!  Look at the video – he could walk normally!

Chris:  When you came you said the doctor gave  you the injection and also the oral drug, Casodex. Because of that you said you could not sleep, had hot flushes. I gave you the Menopause Pill. After taking the Menopause Pill – still has problem?

Son: Much less now.

C: And you said you could not sleep at night – you were still awake until 4 a.m. or 5 a.m. Only then you could sleep. What happen now?

Patent: Can sleep. Better, very good.

C: You feel good already – so no need to take herbs!

P: No, no, cannot. I feel very happy.

(Note: Since patient could not speak / understand much English, our conversation was very limited).

He returned home with a month’s supply of herbs but he never came back after that.

Crash!

To our surprise, CN and his son and daughter turned up on 10 August 2012. He was in severe pain and could hardly walk into our centre. His son had to support him to slowly walk into our centre – watch the video to see how he suffered.  In short, his health had deteriorated – WHY?

 

 

Chris: I asked you to come back and see me in July – you did not come. Why?

Son: When taking the herbs, he was okay already.

C: So when you were on the herbs, everything was okay? No pain?

S: Just a bit of pain only.

C: So you were happy. Then now there is this pain – what did you eat wrong? Tell me what did you eat that I say you cannot eat?

Patient: Fish head curry!

C: Okay, very good. (Pointing to the daughter) You took care of him?

S: No, me, me! I brought him to Kuala Lumpur the last two weeks.

C: Before that he was not in Kuala Lumpur? In your hometown, did he eat  anything he liked?

Daughter: A little bit la!  Went out to eat outside.

C:  But still okay?

D: Under control.

C: So the past two weeks he went to KL. And what did he eat?

S: Eat outside lor.

C: Everyday eat outside? Aya, you want to die la. Can die one you know!

S: Every night we went outside to eat – like pan mee.

C: You see I have told you before. One day eat, okay. Two days eat outside, okay. And one week, was he still okay?

S: One week still okay but after that he started to have pains.

C: Where is the pain?

P: From the stomach radiating to the back.

C: Before this bad food, do you ever have this problem?

S: No, no, never have this kind of problem.

C: This is my experience. Patients – when they eat bad food for a day, never die. Two days also never die but after two weeks they begin to see the bad effects. Only two days ago, I asked my wife why you did not come. I was wondering why – either you are already well or you are already dead. Now you are here.

S: (Everyone laughing).  Ya, now want to die already. The past few days he could not walk much and his condition became more serious.

Why did he suffer again? Two reasons:  He stopped taking our herbs for the past one month and on top of that started to eat any food he liked.

e-Therapy Restored Him

 

 

We immediately put CN on the e-Therapy. His condition improved after one session. And after four sessions of the e-therapy (i.e. four days)  CN felt he had recovered and did not feel it was necessary to travel (one and a half hours drive) to Penang to undergo more sessions of the e-therapy. When CN left he gave me a hug!  After that CN mysteriously disappeared (again!). Since then we did not get to see him again!

Comments

Since CN felt well with the herbs – no more pains and he could sleep well – he decide to forget taking the herbs. Since preparing herbs is indeed a chore and he is feeling great, CN decided not take the herbs for a while. So he did not take the herbs for a month. In addition, he went to stay with his youngest son in Kuala Lumpur for two weeks. His son is a bachelor and does not cook at home. Father and son went out for outside food every evening. After two weeks on bad food CN started to have pains. He had to return to his hometown and immediately drove to see us in Penang.  CN was in severe pains. His son had to support him to slowly walk into our centre. The video would be able to convey the agony he suffered. And this was on 10 August 2012. Compare this situation to what he was like some ten weeks ago, 25 May 2012.

To us at CA Care, things like this happen very often. When patients get well, they will not come and see anymore. When they get into trouble they will show up. Some patients do not take their herbs or they go out to eat anything they like once they feel well.  They want to believe they are cured!

For CN’s case, I really empathize with him. What happened is understandable – but NOT excusable because he cannot get away with what he did wrong. CN’s wife died in an accident some twenty two years ago, so CN lives alone in his home. His children are married and they live their separate lives while the youngest who is close to him, works in another town. My guess is that life to CN could be boring and probably meaningless as well. My favourite author, Harold Kushner  – a Jewish Rabbi, in Who Needs God wrote: More than any other human problem, loneliness, the absence of meaningful human connection, drains the joy and the sense of purpose from our lives … in my experience, more die of loneliness. There is perhaps nothing sadder than experiencing intense joy or intense grief and having no one to share it with.  At CA Care we understand this message. We try our best to treat patients like a human being.  As I have often said cancer is not only about a tumour in your breast, lung or liver. It is about you as a person.

Having seen CN in severe pain, we immediately put him on the e-Therapy. His condition improved after one session. And after four sessions, CN felt he had recovered enough and did not feel it necessary to undergo more sessions of the therapy. The sad part of the story is, up to this day we do not know what has happened to him. Since our last hug, we never get to see CN again. We are more than happy to help him or any other patients, in any way we can – that is, if the patient is willing or needs our help!

The following are the side effects of Lucrin and Casodex, as obtained from the internet.

Side effects of Lucrin: Approximately 52 percent of lucrin users report hot flashes and fluid retention under the skin occurs in at least 8 percent of users. More than 5 percent of patients experience dizziness, pain throughout the body, headache, nausea and vomiting. Some patients experience diarrhea, loss of appetite, anxiety, tingling in the extremities, forgetfulness, sour taste and insomnia. Fever and fatigue, breast tenderness and impotence in men are also possible.

Part 4: Can the e-Therapy help him?

Lung Cancer: An Outstanding Survivor

This case study consists of four parts:
Part 1: Tragedy struck again and again.
Part 2: Experience with Iressa & Tarceva while on CA Care Therapy.
Part 3: Side effects of medical treatment and attitude of doctors.
Part 4: Can the e-Therapy help him?

 

When patients come to see us, they face two problems. One – they suffer the side effects of the treatments as discussed in Part 3 of this article. We are expected to solve these problems for them, i.e., to “repair” the damage. Two, we also have to take care of their cancer – which actually should be our main concern. But most often than not, we ended up doing the “repair” work while the management of cancer has taken second place.

As I have said, we are indeed amazed that Sujo did not have any problem with respect to his lung cancer! Look again at the condition of his lungs when he first came to see us. He started to take the herbs and was well. Since then he did not have any problems with his lungs. Now, he has problems with his mobility!

Lung-compo-2Lung-compo-1

 

One way to help Sujo with his current problems is to use the e-Therapy.

 

 

Muscle Tightness, Numbness and Trembling of Legs

Chris: When you came you said you have problems. What are these problems?

Patient:   My legs feel numb. The muscles at the backbone feel tight.

C: You said the stomach muscles on both sides of the stomach also feel tight?

P: Yes, I feel tight on both sides of my stomach.

Wife: This happen after eating – he does not feel comfortable.

C: If your stomach is not full – okay?

P:  Less problem.

The e-Therapy Helped to a Certain Extent

P:  After undergoing the e-therapy I feel a bit better – it helps. But then after that the problem comes back again.

Comment

Indeed, the e-therapy is not a magic therapy. Sujo underwent only four sessions of the therapy here. I don’t expect any magic either! Nevertheless, in all it was not a wasted effort. He did benefit from the e-therapy even though this did not solve all his problems all at once. I am hoping with more of the therapy over a period of time, his problems will improve. He needs to undergo the therapy 2 to 3 hours daily. I have taught his wife and daughter how to go about doing the e-therapy properly. I am optimistic Sujo would improve.

 

Breast Cancer: Pains Gone After e-Therapy

 MT (S-127) is a 44-year old female from Batam, Indonesia. She was diagnosed with early stage breast cancer in August 2005. MT underwent a mastectomy followed by 6 cycles of chemotherapy and 30 radiation treatments. Then she took Tamoxifen for 5 years.

After 5 years, MT was told to stop Tamoxifen because she was already cured.  But barely a year later, in April 2011, MT started to have pains in her tail bone and shoulder blade.  CT scan in February 2012 indicated metastasis to her bones.

MT gave up further medical treatment and came to CA Care for help. Her health improved. Her pains disappeared. When she was well, she exerted herself causing the pains to recur. MT came back to see us again on 6 May 2012 and underwent the e-Therapy.

Acknowledgement:  MT granted us her permission to use this video without having to mask her face.

 

Before the e-Therapy

Watch the first part of the video carefully. She walked with difficulty and with a limp. She had difficulty sitting down and had to support herself. She appeared to be in pain when moving due to the following problems.

  1. She had pains on both thighs and around her hip.
  2. Pain in the lumbar region.
  3. Muscles cramps in both legs.
  4. Her tail bone felt pains and “hot.”
  5. Her muscles around her shoulder blades felt numb.
  6.  She had pulling pains in her head.

After the e-Therapy

Watch the second part of the video. After two to four sessions of the e-Therapy MT appeared a “different person” free from all pains. She was able to walk normally (not limping anymore). She could sit down normally.

Chris: Is there any difference in your sleep – before and after the e-Therapy?

MT:  I slept better after the e-Therapy.

After the e-Therapy, were there more or less pains?

Less pain. The lumbar region had “loosened” up and there were no more pains.  The whole body felt “lighter.” I felt better when walking.

You said you had pains in both thighs?

No more problems.

Are you sure?

No more problems!

You said your legs were numb?

No more.

Your tail bone felt hot?

Not anymore.

At the back, around your shoulder blades – they were tight and numb – what happen now?

No more. I fell “lighter” now.

The pulling pains in your head?

I did not feel that anymore.

After two sessions of the e-Therapy and you really feel better?

Yes. I felt much better. Before e-Therapy I had difficulty standing up. I had to push myself up with both my hands. Now, I am okay – no problem.

Do you have problem walking?

Not any more.

What other problems do you have now?

The muscles at the lower rib region feel a bit tight.

Okay, we will “repair” that.

Up On My Feet Again Four Days After Another (slipped disc) Attack

What does earthquake and backache (or slipped disc) have in common? Both are unpredictable. They strike at any time – at any unsuspecting moment. Let me share with you what happened in this second week of April.

On Monday morning, 9 April 2012, I was getting ready to go to our cancer centre. As usual I went to my computer to check if I have any emails waiting to be answered. The Google Chrome did not work!  I looked at the wire connection and thought it could be due to some misconnection. I bent down to check. I turned a bit and twisted my back! I could feel the muscle “snapped.” Initially it did not feel that bad. I could still go downstairs to have my breakfast. Then I went upstairs into my study to try to “repair” my back. After all I expected to have a busy morning at the centre – formulating all those herbal teas that had to be replenished. But it was not to be. The problem became more serious. I thought I should just stay home. I sat on my reclining chair and did the e-Therapy, using my favourite program – Lumbago. It did not work! In fact, it gave me more pain. I felt tightness of my stomach muscle. I could not stand up straight after being in a sitting position. Then I found it hard to walk. Lying down or etting up was a torture. The amazing thing was – I did not feel any numbness in my feet.

So for the whole day, I stayed in bed – reading many books! Since I could not walk much, I had to take lunch and dinner in our bedroom! Wah, good to have a loving wife sitting together for (sorry, not candle light) dinner. Then it was back to bed again to rest by “fragile” back. I did more programs from the e-Therapy machine, such as Backache & Spasm.

Day 2: Tuesday 10 April 2012. I did not get any better! It seemed that the machine was “useless”. It was indeed a difficult day – painful to wake up, painful to sit up straight and painful to lie down. I had to use a walking stick to push myself up.  But when I lie down on my back, I was just fine. But turning to the left or right was painful. Unfortunately, I did not video tape what I had suffered. But to give you an idea of I went through, just see the video of this Aceh lady – how she struggled to get up and walk. Yes, I was just like that, more or less.

Then I remembered that I had appointments with two patients on Wednesday (tomorrow). One was from India. It would be unfair if I could not meet this person who had to fly all the way from India. I managed to write an email to him asking if it was possible to defer his trip. I wrote the same to another patient in Kuala Lumpur. Good that both understood my situation and agreed.

I did not let up on using the e-Therapy but the problem did not seem to improve. I took a few doses of the Backache Wine over a period of time. These generally would help based on previous experiences. But the wine did not help either. What has gone wrong? With this same therapy, I managed to help others “like magic” but I could not do that for myself? Was this just a placebo effect that we the alternative practitioners are often being accused of? It is all in the mind! And my mind cannot work on me?

Day 3: Wednesday 11 April 2012. My condition improved slightly. There was less pain and less muscle tension. Actually when I was lying down I felt great. I was my normal self in that position. In fact I told my wife that if the person in India comes because he has already bought his plane ticket, then what we could do is – let him come and see me in my home. I can still talk – just cannot walk around too much. Fortunately we did not have to come to that.

In the late afternoon – the house trembled! I was in bed reading. I felt the bed shaking lightly at first and then it became more violent. The glass panels of our three-tier- from-floor-to-ceiling book shelf rattled vigorously.  I thought it was going to topple down. The shaking lasted for quite a while and then stopped. That was the 8.7-magnitude earthquake off the coast of Sumatra.

Day 4: Thursday 12 April 2012. I felt much better. I was able to walk downstairs and have my meals – breakfast, lunch and dinner. It looked like I would be okay by tomorrow! I found out that the e-Therapy program: Muscle Spasm and Detox seemed to make me better.

Day 5: Friday 13 April 2012. This is our cancer care day. I was able to go up and down the stairs with a lot more confidence. I took a walk in the garden. And just be sure that I would be well rested for our afternoon consultation, I remained in bed all morning. Then at about 2.30 p.m. we went to see patients at our centre. About a dozen patients came for help that afternoon. The consultation session ended by 6.30 p.m. I came home to take a rest.

Day 6: Saturday 14 April 2012. Great day! I could manage to sit up in front of my computer and write the first draft of this story! Yesterday’s consultation session with patients did not cause any adverse effects. But I was aware that I was still fragile. I felt my back was still “soft” – perhaps could break any time!  No, I have no more pains when waking up or lying down. There were no pains when I stood up. I could walk about without a walking stick.  I could now bathe by myself but I could not bend down to wipe and dry my legs! Yes, I did recover. But not fully yet!

At the end, I realised that the e-Therapy did not let me down! Perhaps I was expecting too much too soon. Okay, let me go back to my bed and rest. I should not be sitting down in front of the computer for too long!

In the evening we brought our visiting relatives for dinner in town.

Comments

  1. I am aware that there is no cure for low back pain. It will recur and recur. I just have to be careful and try to avoid any situation that can cause it to come back. Indeed it is hard to anticipate. It can strike at any odd moment at any place. I just have to learn to live with it.
  2. This was not the first time I suffered from such problems. It happened many times before. The first two times landed me in hospital. That was in the “good (or bad?) old days” when I believed modern medicine could solve all the world’s problem. I have written about this earlier (see  My Own Personal Experience With Lower Back Pain)  With a problem like this, the obvious reaction is to rush to the hospital. No, I did not do that now.  I just wanted to relax and allow my body to heal. It is not an emergency!
  3. This week’s episode is just unfortunate but it was one of the worst that I have ever suffered since the past many years. Nevertheless, I thought I could handle it myself. My earlier experiences with the orthopedic taught me  that I need not rush to the hospital for this kind of problem. I just need to take care of myself. I would “reserve” going to the hospital for some other more serious problem!
  4. While in bed, I took time to read many books. I read Mitch Albom’s – Have a Little Faith and Randy Pausch’s The Last lecture. Professor Pausch had pancreatic cancer and underwent surgery and chemo. Then he ended up with 10 spots in his liver and was told he had a few months to live. Read this if you have time.  I also read Life Before Life – documentation about young children telling about their past lives. Then I read some chapters of Michio Kaku’s, Parallel World, Bruce Lipton’s, The Biology of Belief and Jerome Groopman’s,  How Doctors Think. So, it was a time well spent in bed.
  5. Those of you who have this e-Therapy machine – can you read at the same time you do the program? No, you have to hold the hand-set! About a month ago, I made a bit of modification and instead of using the hand set we could also use a stick-on electrode (used for ECG, etc.). So, this time I have the opportunity to try out this hands-free treatment on myself for the first time. So with my hands free, I can do other things. Real cool!

Let me conclude by quoting some of what Dr. Jerome Groopman wrote in his book, How doctors think.

  • How doctors think about a problem like chronic low back pain is heavily influenced by the speciality that they are trained in – who you see is what you get.
  • Each of the various muscles, tendons, bones, joints and ligaments in the lower back contains sensory nerves that can transmit messages of pain through the spinal cord to the brain. There are also organs in the abdomen and pelvis that, when they become inflamed or diseased, can signal pain in the back. Given all of these structures, the source of the chronic low back pain is often a mystery. Doctors can be hard-pressed to identify why a patient is uncomfortable.
  • Each approach to diagnosis and treatment is essentially a “franchise,” and that too many franchises are battling for control.
  • The technology has also developed rapidly. New sorts of screws, rods, and cages, as well as other devices, can be inserted into the spine. These instruments are aggressively marketed and generate high profit margins for both the manufacturer and the hospitals that use them.
  • Research showed that 85 percent of patients who suffer from low back pain cannot be given a precise diagnosis; the pain is usually vaguely ascribed to “strain” or “sprain” in the lumber region. It turns out that the diagnosis is not critical, because the outcomes tend to be similar anyway. With acute low back pain, 90 percent improve within two to seven weeks without specific therapy. Even with an acute ruptured disc … 80 percent feel significantly better within six weeks without surgery. Over time the disc retracts, so it no longer presses on the nerves and the inflammation subsides.

Wow! Lower back pain heals by itself but it takes about two to seven weeks to do so. So, I am not doing badly  – being able to be on my feet after a few days!

Update: 30 April 2012 

I was able to drive to the Botanical Gardens and walked around. There was not more pain anywhere in my body. It appeared that I was back to my normal self again. One lesson learnt: As one gets older, the body will need more time to recover from any health challenge!

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?

 

Walking, Sensitivity of Leg and Stiff Neck Improved After e-Therapy

CR is a 73-year-old female from Indonesia. She is our breast cancer patient and has been taking our herbs for many months now. In late March 2012, she and her family returned to Penang for a routine check-up. Everything is alright. However, she has a long-standing problem. About three years ago, she underwent a surgery for hip and shoulder joint replacement. After this surgery she had the following problems:

  1. Her left leg felt heavy when walking
  2. There were pricking (electric) shock when the tips of her left leg fingers were touched or her left sole stepped on something.
  3. There was numb feeling in her lower left leg.

The surgeon was unable to help her with the above problems – that’s the way it is! Otherwise, CR could undergo another surgery to correct the problem!

About a month ago, CR had stiff neck.

We suggested that CR undergo the e-Therapy since she had about four days in Penang. It is with great satisfaction to note that the e-Therapy helped her very much.

Kidney Cancer: Remove One and a Half Kidneys Then Go For Dialysis!

What if you were told to remove one kidney because of your cancer? That’s okay. I have a patient and friend,  who had a kidney removed because of his cancer. He took herbs and was on our diet. He is living a good life for the past sixteen years.

But what if you were told to remove one and a half of your kidneys? That would be a dilemma. The remaining one half kidney may not function. You may need to go on dialysis for the rest of your life.

And what if removing your kidney does not really solve your cancer problem? Surgery does not cure cancer. It just buys you time. Cancer can recur. What if the cancer recurs? That means you need the toxic chemotherapy treatment besides having to undergo dialysis to keep you alive.

What if you live in a place where you are not sure if there is a “good” dialysis facility? That is not your doctor’s problem anymore. 

I am not “cooking” up these questions. I had to deal with this problem not long ago – while I was on a vacation. I received this email on 20 November 2011.

To: Dr. Chris K.H. Teo,

My father had been diagnosed with kidney cancer. I am now confused as to what to do. A friend recommended me to see Dr. Teo. Hopefully Dr. Teo can help. We are now in Singapore, if it is possible to meet, I will be looking for flights to Penang today. Thank you. (Translated from Indonesian)

Knowing that he was desperate, I told him to come and see me as soon as I was back in Malaysia. So on 24 November 2011, SK and his two sons came to Penang. Below is our conversation that day.

SK’s problem started about two years ago. He had blood in his urine. He consulted an urologist who prescribed him medication. The problem disappeared. Then in May 2011, there was again blood in his urine.

An ultrasound of his abdomen on 27 May 2011 indicated a 67.2 x 64.2 mm mass in his right kidney and a 70.5 x 56.0 mm mass in his left kidney.

SK was again prescribed medication and the problem disappeared after taking it. In mid-November 2011, SK again had blood in his urine. Accompanied by his two sons, SK went to Singapore for further consultation.

A CT scan done on 16 November 2011 indicated a large mass, 6.7 x 8.4 x 7 cm in size in the left kidney. The right kidney has a nodular mass, 6.6. x 4.9 x 6.4 cm in size. Appearances are highly of bilateral renal neoplasm.

A blood test on 16 November 2011 showed elevated creatinine (141.0) level. His alkaline phosphatase was at 165 (high) and GGT at 228 (high). Other parameters, including AFP, CEA and PSA, were within normal range.

A bone scan done on 21 November 2011 indicated no conclusive evidence of any bony metastases.

Based on the above, the doctor in Singapore said he was 95 percent sure that SK has kidney cancer. SK was asked to undergo an operation to remove the tumours in both his kidneys. This would involve removing one and a half kidneys. There is a 50:50 chance that the remaining one half of the other kidney may not function after the surgery. If this happens, SK would have to be on dialysis. In spite of this set back, the doctor said the tumours must be removed.

SK and his sons refused further medical treatment. SK told us, “What the doctor offered me is not going to solve my problems.” He opted for our therapy. On 24 November 2011, SK was prescribed Capsule A and B, Liver Tea, Kidney Tea, Detox+ WF Tea and Lung Tea. While back in Indonesia, we kept in touch via e-mails through his son.

I wish to inform you about my father’s condition. After taking the herbs for 6 days and following your diet recommendation, he felt weak, sweat very frequently, lost his appetite, felt nauseous. Are these expected?

Reply: Continue taking the herbs and let me know what happen after one more week.

2 December  2011

Today my father vomited and could not eat anything. After eating he vomited. He felt nauseous. Should he continue taking the herbs? Because of the vomiting he cannot even drink the herbal teas. Please advise.

Reply: Okay. Take Capsule A only. Then see what happen after that. If okay, drink Detox tea + WF + Capsule A – see what happen. Let me know. Chris.

9 December 2011 

I wish to inform you about my father conditions:

a)      After stopping Capsule B, his stomach felt better, he vomited less but he still vomited at night.

b)      His whole body was very uncomfortable – very tired, sweating, blurred vision, dizzy when standing up. Are these the side effects of the herbs?

c)       Now my father is taking: Capsule A (1 capsule, 3 times per day), Energy and Kidney Teas. He does not take: Capsule B, Detox tea + WF, Liver and Lung teas. What is your advice? Should continue or stop any one of them?

d)      After 10 days on the herbs, we did a blood test. The results are attached. Please have a look if there is any improvement? What do you think?

Reply:

a)  He should not have such side effects – is he the kind of person who is fussy about his food? Difficult and selective about the taste of food?

b) Feeling of discomforts is because of his stomach? Any gastric problem before? Did he take Capsule A + B with honey water?

c) What about his blood pressure? His blood counts were low but I don’t expect such problems.

d) I have no other way. If you take the herbs and they are not helpful, go and find someone else to help you.

e) Go to this link and read what it takes to be a winner. http://cancercareindonesia.com/2011/09/11/kanker-paru-otak-suatu-penyembuhan-yang-tidak-mungkin-1-harapan-setelah-suatu-bencana-empat-puluh-siklus-kemoterapi-iressa-tarceva-dan-sutent-tid      Read this carefully.

f) Don’t expect after taking the herbs for 10 days the blood test results are going to be better. 

15 December 2011

Dr. Chris. Thank you for the information. My father is improving. He is now taking all the herbs, except Capsule B as you have suggested. In the next 5 days our herbs are going to be finished and we plan to come and see you on 21 December 2011. Would you be able to see us?

Reply:  Okay come and see me, 10.30 a.m. Chris 

Second Visit to CA Care – 22rd – 23 December 2011

The e-Therapy machine is helping all my family members, including me. All of us are using the machine. Day by day my father’s condition, after coming back, is getting better. Now, his appetite is getting better, physically he looks more fresh and energetic. We celebrated Christmas eve by watching the movie at the cinema. He was so excited at the moment. Thank you for your advice and support, Dr. Chris. GBU

Reply:  Very good and happy to hear that. Yes, make your father happy always. Please let me know the following:

a) Before he vomited, now does he still vomit?

b) Any pain in the stomach?

c) Does the machine help him with the stomach problem? I asked you to use the program for Stomach function program.

d) Is there any pain any where?

Thanks so much and keep well always. Chris

6 January 2012

Yes, I hope day by day will be better and better.

a) No, a day after coming back from Penang he felt better with his stomach. He told me that after winds came out from his stomach, he felt so good. He never needs to take the Vomit herb until now.

b) He said that there is no pain in his stomach, but he felt so much wind in there.

c)  After coming back from Penang, and after he felt better with his stomach, he never used the Stomach function program at all. He does the cancer programs only.

d) According to him, there is a little pain in his kidney (more in the right kidney), the pains  comes just sometimes. 

Reply: Thanks so much for your answer. I am happy to note that he is not vomiting anymore. And he continues to take the other herbs? Chris

7 January 2012

Yes, he takes all the herbs: Energy, Liver-P, Kidney, Lung, Capsule A & B, Detox tea. And he is doing the machine program like you taught me. Morning, midday and at night – everyday.

Reply: One more question — After he took all the herbs — did he vomit this time? Before he came and saw me the second time and before using the machine —- he vomited after taking herbs or even drinking something. Now is he , no vomit? Chris

7 January 2012

Morning Dr. Chris,

Alright, no vomiting anymore. Even after taking the Capsule B (before you suggested that he stop taking it because he vomited after taking Capsule B).  Now he is taking all the herbs, except Vomit Tea.

Reply: Great and thanks. Chris 

15 January 2012

Dr. Chris,

My father vomited again this night. He told me there was a lot of gas in his stomach. Morning and mid-day he felt good, but in the night not good (every day). What do you think? Is it the effect after take capsule B? Your opinion please.
Thank you.

Reply: Can you try #72 -Stomach problem and there is also #124 Stomach Gas. Try one first and see what happens. Then later try another and see what happens. I think his stomach is not good. Let me know. Chris

16 January 2012 

What happen to the vomit now? Chris

20 January 2012

Dr. Chris,

My father is not vomiting anymore.

Reply: Okay thank you — next time you know what to do if he vomits again. You use the machine for his vomit? Chris 

26 January 2012

Hello Dr.Chris,

Happy Chinese New Year. Yes, my dad used the machine for his vomit. Thanks.

Comments 

This is indeed a sad story. I fully empathize with SK. He was in limbo having to choose between the “devil and the deep blue sea.” As a rule, any patient who comes to us with kidney tumour will be told to go back to his/her doctor for surgery. Get the diseased kidney out! Then come to us for herbs. But in this case, it is not possible for me to say that to SK. If surgery can ensure that the cancer does not recur and spread to other organs then I am tempted to “push” him towards surgery.  At least SK will end up with only just a problem –dialysis for the rest of his life. But what if the cancer comes back, example to his lung? Chemo would be the obvious answer! I have fully explained this scenario to SK and his two sons.

As you can hear from our conversation, SK and his family have already decided to decline further medical intervention. The treatment plan proposed by the Singapore does not make sense to him. Likewise, I tell all patients – evaluate what your doctor has got to offer you – if it makes sense, go for it. If it does not make sense, don’t go for it! It is your responsibility to make whatever decision that you are most comfortable with.

Sometimes before making a decision, it is wise for patients or their loved ones to “read and read”. Don’t just listen and believe what your doctor or friends said. Find the necessary information yourself, if you can. In this way, at least you can go to the “battle” well prepared.

This is exactly what I did in SK’s case. To be better informed, I searched the internet for the answers to the questions below. And you will be surprised that there are many others asking the same questions and there are equally many others who are willing to share their own experiences with you.

  1. Could You Live Without Your Kidneys?
  • A person can live with only one functioning kidney if the other is diseased or has been removed. But no one can live without both kidneys, unless he undergoes almost daily treatments on a dialysis machine.
  • I recently had both kidneys removed and only require dialysis 3 times a week for 4 hours each visit. In each session I filter approx 68 litres of blood. I have to take tablets for blood pressure as well as other conditions and can only drink 500ml of fluid a day as I no longer make any pee. I have a low potassium, sodium and phosphate diet. So yes, you can live without kidneys, but it’s not straightforward or easy.
  • I don’t have any kidneys and I haven’t had any for 6 years now. I do my dialysis 3 days in a week for 5 hours at a time.
  • About 9 months ago I had both kidneys removed. I need dialysis 4 times a week for 4 hours. I can drink 0. 5 litre to 1 liter per day, but for example I drank about 8 liter last weekend. Drink-throw up, drink-throw up, drink-throw up – that’s the answer.
  • I currently have half a kidney on one side and one 3rd on the other half of my body. So I don’t have one full kidney. I am still living an awesome life … doing anything I want.

2.   So, what is your life like on dialysis?

  • Obviously it is going to be a life changing thing but something that we must learn to cope with and becomes part of our life. No one would choose dialysis versus normal functioning kidneys. However without dialysis life is not possible at all. There are risks of taking off too much fluid or not enough fluid. There are risks of infection, both blood infections and infections of the fistula.  Again, no one volunteers to do dialysis but it is definitely better than dying from renal failure. In my experience, patients usually learn to cope well and make it a “normal part of life”.
  • I went on dialysis at age 45 and did very well. Most of the time I felt very good. I was in good shape. Here is what worked for me. I was very compliant with my treatment. I did not skip dialysis sessions and I didn’t end them before my time on the machine was done. I followed the diet, which can make a big difference in how you feel.  I did not have fluid restrictions. I took all my medicines. I had very good doctors and an extremely good nursing team at dialysis. I tried to educate myself about dialysis & kidney disease.
  • My brother suffered total kidney failure and had to go on dialysis. He feels constantly tired and generally ill, he’s on a massively strict diet plan (rule of thumb: if it’s nice, you probably can’t have it). Although he can do occasional driving work on my uncle’s farm, anything more than a half-day’s worth leaves him exhausted.
  • My mom was on dialysis. My mom has said she would rather die than do dialysis again. The restrictive diet was really hard especially the drinking less liquid part of it. Having said all that her Doctors were quite firm with her that she should continue working and have as normal a life as a possible while doing the dialysis, they said and I can see this to be true, that removing the things that normalize her life would make her more prone to depression and more apt to feel awful about her treatment. So she continued to work.
  • I am a 37 yr old female. To be perfectly honest I HATE dialysis, I hate having to sit in a chair for 3 and a half hours,  bored, and  senseless out of my mind, hardly a soul to talk to, having to sit without moving in case the stupid perm-a-cath in my neck decides to play up, the fact my pulse races anywhere up to and over 150. If it wasn’t for my husband, son and mum and dad I think I would just tell them to get lost and do without it. I am starting to hate Monday, Wednesday and Friday – the days in between aren’t much better. If I am not out in hot flushes in throwing up, but because of my family I keep going.
  • Deciding not to do dialysis is not suicide!!! It’s natural. I personally do not do well on dialysis but I see other people that do better. No one in my center is happy about being there especially me. On dialysis days I go from 5:30 am to 8:30 am. I can’t drive after this because it takes such a toll on me so my husband picks me up and takes me home and goes back to work. I am down for the day. They next day I feel a little better so I get some house work done and cook dinner for 2 days in advance. I always said I would not do dialysis but here I am doing it with the hope of getting a transplant and that is the only reason I have continued for 5 months. My quality of life stinks. I have nothing to look forward to. It is starting to take a toll financially. My marriage is suffering in several ways. So what I am living for is not to disappoint other people. I feel like a burden. I want my life back.
  • My brother has been on dialysis for 5 years now and is 24. The only thing that bothers him about dialysis is it can become an inconvenience. It does make him weaker and very tired, but only on the day he has it, and this usually only lasts a few hours. But as most people have said there is a fluid intake limit and if the patient exceeds this limit it can have side effects such as sickness. The machine affects everyone differently.
  • I have been on dialysis for almost three years. At first I liked going because it made me feel so much better. Then it was annoying and boring. Then I hated it with a passion and resented having to go. Now I just accept it and go, trying to make the best of it with books, CDs and my portable DVD player. Those three days a week make the rest of my life possible. On the regular days, I am reasonably energetic, I exercise and eat well, so I look as healthy as anyone else, maybe more so.

3.   How long can a person live on dialysis?

  • Until they die.
  • I’m 62 yrs old and have Agent Orange Cancer and diabetes type 2. I will be stopping dialysis, just too tired to keep going. Yes I know that it is death warrant but it is time to let go.
  • My wife is on dialysis. I have heard of people being on it for over twenty years, So, if you take care of yourself, it should be able to go indefinitely if needed.
  • I have been living with dialysis for the past 24yrs (I am 43yrs old) and I still doing quite well.
  • So how long can a person live on dialysis. As long as they need to, or as long as they want to, or as long as they can. It’s just like how long can you live at all. Tomorrow isn’t promised to anyone, regardless of their health!
  • My great aunt has been on dialysis for about 15 years! She’s living a long and healthy life so far. As of now, she is 89 years old!
  • The answer to that varies with individual. I have been on dialysis for 3 1/2 years now. It has been a horrific experience. One, the big dialysis machines (hemo) WILL KILL YOU. They beat you senseless so you have the shakes the rest of the day and get NO sleep at night. So you just sort of try and recover the next day, so you can get pasted all over again. Two, have a career? Forget IT. Once you have been tagged as a sicky you are going nowhere fast, no matter your degrees or training. Three, hemo dialysis just weakens you in the short run, medium run, and long run so other diseases can take hold. The person who answered that you can have a long productive life on dialysis is a quack. probably one of these quack doctors in the field. They probably never did one hour on dialysis. YOU WANT REALITY? Take it from a REAL patient.
  • My father just passed away last month, he had dialysis for almost ten years. I can see him getting weaker and weaker each day. Finally his heart became so weak that he cannot take dialysis anymore.
  • There are a lot of good answers in here. Unfortunately, it’s tough to give an accurate number since every case is different. One patient might make it for 20+ years, another might not make it to 4. A lot depends on how well the person takes care of themselves during dialysis and how much kidney function they have left. It seems to me, the less kidney activity you have the worse off you’re going to be.

Outlook of Kidney Cancer

The prognosis for kidney cancer is usually good when a single kidney is removed and the cancer is at its early stage. If both kidneys are removed or the remaining kidney does not function well enough, patients need hemodialysis or a kidney transplant. Unfortunately kidney cancer has a tendency to reoccur after surgery. When that happens, the game is virtually over because metastatic kidney cancer is generally resistant to chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

You may then ask, “So what can CA Care has got to offer?” As I have always said to patients. “We have nothing to cure your cancer – for whatever cancer you have!” Go to your doctor if you want a cure. Go to your doctor if you want to put up a good “fight” with your cancer. Come to us if you want healing. At CA Care we teach you how to live with your cancer and with our herbs and change of lifestyle and diet, hopefully these will help restore your health.  We hope to help rebuild your life so that you can still continue to live a pain-free and   meaningful life without fear. We want you to recognise that death is an inevitable part of life. Therefore you should be living your life without fear. Don’t you not realize that the day we are born, we are destined to die? No one can escape this ultimate destiny. Medicine cannot win over death no matter how heroic your doctor’s effort is or how great the technology applied is. Rather than fight, let’s accept the inevitable so that we can live a more relaxed and happy life.

Lymphoma: Chemotherapy Failed, Life Was Miserable But Herbs and e-Therapy Revived Her

Acknowledgment: The patient granted her permission to use this video without having to mask her face.

1.  A Long Journey From Home to Penang

MN (S-81) is a 56-year-old lady from Indonesia.  She and her husband came to a private hospital in Penang to search for an alternative treatment for her Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.  But there was none. She was given the same option – undergo chemotherapy again.

They live in Labuan Batu, a town south of Medan. Coming to Penang is a long journey indeed. From home, first they had to travel for 9 hours by bus (or 6 hours by train) to  Medan. After an overnight stay in Medan, they took a plane to Penang.

2.  Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma

Sometime in early 2011, MN felt lethargic. Her stomach was painful. She had profuse sweating, specially her head . For the past one year she had been coughing. Doctors were unable to cure her coughs.

In May 2011, MN was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. She underwent six cycles of chemotherapy with CHOP.

After the completion of the chemo treatment the cancer recurred in the form of a small swelling at her left collar bone – at the same spot where she did a biopsy earlier. MN was asked to undergo another round of chemotherapy. She refused and came to Penang looking for alternative medicine.

(Note: CHOP regimen consists of four drugs – Cyclophosphamide, Doxorubicin (or Adriamycin), Vincristine and Prednisolone. The first three drugs of the CHOP chemotherapy regimen are usually given as injections or infusions in veins on a single day, while prednisolone is taken as pills for five days. Each cycle is repeated every 3 weeks for 6 to 8 cycles).

MN received her treatment in a government hospital in Medan. Each treatment required a two-day stay in the hospital.

 3.  Life was Difficult During and After Chemotherapy

The first five chemos seemed to help MN. Her health seemed to improve. However, the sixth chemo was “bad”. Her health deteriorated – “dropped”. She had no strength and was not even able to climb out of bed by herself. She had to be hospitalized for two weeks. After being discharged from the hospital, she regained some strength. She was able to walk for about 10 metres and had to stop. At home she was not able to do anything. Her husband had to do all the house chores.

She said, “I walked a bit, my feet felt numb. My hands felt numb. I felt difficult, nauseous. I was bald.”

After chemo, her stomach pains disappeared but her one-year-old problem of coughs and profuse sweating persisted.

4.  Recurrence

One and a half months after the completion of her chemo, a small lump appeared at the collar bone – the same site where she first had her biopsy. The doctor in Medan confirmed it was a recurrence. She was asked to undergo a second round of chemotherapy.

5.   More of the Same Advice in Penang

MN said, “I do not want any more chemo. That is why I come here.”

MN and her husband came to a private hospital in Penang in December 2011 in the hope of finding an alternative treatment to chemo. But she was told to do more of the same thing – undergo more chemotherapy!

Husband: “No point. If we wanted to do chemo, we could have stayed back in Medan (treatment was given free-of-charge because he was an ex-government staff). In Penang, I have to pay for the treatment.”

The oncologist suggested two options. The first option is to use drugs that cost RM 7,000 per cycle. This means, the six-cycle-treatment would come to about RM 42,000. The oncologist told them that this treatment will cure her cancer. The second option is to use cheaper drugs costing RM 3,000 per cycle. But the effectiveness is uncertain.

Chris: Well, that means you have to sell your house to pay for the treatment?

MN: “No, we have no house to sell. Even to come here now – the expenses are provided by our children.”

Chris: Do you believe what the oncologist told you  – that the expensive chemo can cure you?

MN and Husband: “No, we never believe what he said.”

MN: “I refused to do more chemo. I can’t stand chemo any more. I can’t walk, I can’t eat. I am still bald now.”

6.  Disappointed – But Later They Found CA Care

MN and her husband were disappointed. They did not find the alternative treatment they wanted from the hospital. They did not know what to do next. However, a day later a lady told them about CA Care.

Chris: So you came to see us (on 18 December 2011).

MN: “Actually my son also asked me to find for an alternative way. He said I should find that herbalist in Penang. But he did not know who.”

7.   CA Care’s Herbs and e-Therapy Restored Her Health

MN was prescribed Capsule A, Lympho 1 and Lympho 2 teas, C-tea and Cough No 3, 5 and 11 for her problems. She was also told to take care of her diet.

Husband: “Her health improved within three weeks.”

Chris: Yesterday you told us that before you first came to Penang (in December 2011), all your friends who saw you cried. Why did they cry?

Husband: “They looked at her – her health was so bad. She was so weak. When we went home all her friends were smiling. She looked better.”

MN: “ I was so full of hope after meeting you, doctor.”

Chris: Are you sure that after taking the herbs for three weeks you are really better?

MN: “Yes.”

Husband: “Now she can walk for some distance without any problem. Before she had difficulty after walking 10 metres.”

MN: “My husband had to massage my legs every day.”

Husband:”Every time after she walked I had to massage her legs. Now I don’t have to do that anymore. She had not recovered 100 percent yet but her health has recovered by some 75 percent now.”

MN:”I had coughs for a year. I did X-ray three times and I saw all these doctors. The cough persisted. I took your herbs for four days and the coughs were almost gone!”

Chris: Praise and be thankful to God for this blessing.

MN: “When I first came here in December and was in the hospital, there was this patient who also came from Medan. She came to my room and help massaged my legs. She felt sorry for me. My legs were numb. That was before I came to see you. After I took your herbs there was no need for anyone to massage my legs any more.”

Chris to Husband: Ho, ho, you don’t have to do any more work! Very good, very good.

NM and husband returned to Penang after taking three weeks of herbs. This was in January 2012. She underwent three days of treatment with the e-Therapy.

MN:”My health improved further. I don’t feel numb or tired anymore. Instead it is my husband who felt tired when we walked this morning.”

Chris: Oh no – I have to take care of your husband too?

8.  You are Blessed! 

Chris: You are indeed blessed. After seeing the oncologist in the hospital you all were disappointed because you could not find what you wanted from the hospital. You did not know where else to turn to. But a day later – after you prayed – an “angel lady” appeared and told you about CA Care.

Husband:”We were ready to go home “empty handed.”We did not have the funds to pay for such expensive treatment which we did not come for anway.” 

Chris: Indeed it was a blessing from God. I fully understand the situation you are in. 

9.   Go Home and Be Careful – Take Care of Yourself

Chris: I am so happy that I am able to help you. This is my advice – please go home and take care of yourself well. Take care of your diet, exercise and take the herbs. My herbs are not magic but I believe they do help you.

MN and her husband returned to CA Care on 8 January 2012 and underwent the e-Therapy.

Watch this video.

After three weeks of herbs

She reported her health had improved:

  • Her coughs were almost gone – now she coughs once a while. Previously it was continuously.
  • She had more energy.
  • Her appetite improved.
  • The “heaty” feeling in the left side of her abdomen comes once in a while. Previously it was often.
  • Profuse sweating in the head was much less. Previously it was soaking wet and happened often, day and night.
  • She slept well. Before it was difficult.
  • Numbness of her fingers was gone but the numbness of her legs persisted although there was improvement.
  • She had more strength to walk. She could walk 100 metres without feeling tired. Previously even doing 10 or 20 metres was difficult.
  • The only problem she has now is a feeling of “ discomfort /numbness” in her right shoulder.

After first session of e-Therapy

  • She felt real good.
  • The body felt lighter.
  • Numbness of the legs was much less.

After second session of e-Therapy

  • She felt better.
  • Numbness of her legs had improved further.
  • Urination and bowel movements were better.
  • She had more energy.
  • She had no more coughs.
  • Discomfort in the left shoulder still persisted.

After third session of e-Therapy

  • The discomfort in the left should was gone.

Comments

Many Indonesian patients who come to seek our help need to travel from afar.  We empathize with them. This is indeed a test of their commitment and a testimony of their real desire of wanting to help themselves. In contrast, we have phone calls and e-mails from patients who live just a few miles away and yet they complained that it is difficult to come and see us. They prefer consultation over the phone. Similarly we have patients from Sarawak, Sabah or Singapore who only want us to help them through the phone or internet. Unfortunately, we cannot help such patients. It is better that they go and seek help from herbalists nearby their homes. Life is easier that way – for them and also for us.

But for those like MN, who have travel so far to come and seek help, we pray that we never let them down. We shall do our utmost best to help them. Indeed this case is an example of a wonderful and rewarding effort that makes our day real great. We thank God for His  blessings – and hope many more cases like this will continue to come by our way.

Breast-Bone Cancer: e-Therapy Relieved Pains of Her Backbone

Ati (S-71) is a 44-year-old lady from Aceh, Indonesia.  Sometime in early 2011, the nipple in her right breast retracted. There was no discharge but she felt pulling pains. Although Ati is a staff in a hospital, she refused medical treatment. She went to seek the help of a sinseh in Medan and was on his herbs. Since this did not help her, she came to a private hospital in Penang in February 2011.

Ati underwent a mastectomy. The histopathology report indicated an infiltrating ductal carcinoma, Stage 2 (T2bN1Mx). One of the five axillary lymph nodes was positive for metastatic cancer. The tumour was positive for ER, PR and c-erbB2 receptors.

After this Ati returned to Aceh. She started to take the tea made from sour sop leaves for about one and half months. She came back to see her surgeon again for a follow up. MRI done on 8 April 2011 indicated multiple ill define mixed lytic and sclerotic lesions involving the spine – predominantly at the lower thoracic and lumbar spine as well as in the pelvis. These are likely bony metastases.

At was asked to undergo chemotherapy. She refused.

In December 2011, Ati came back to Penang again. MRI done on 5 December 2011 revealed extensive vertebral metastasis involving the thoracic and lumbar spine. There was a fracture at L4 vertebra and bilateral neuroforaminal narrowing at L4/5 and L3/4.

Blood test done on 7 December 2011 indicated elevation of the liver function enzymes.

Alkaline phsophatase 109.88
GGT  142.45  High
ALT    74.1    High
AST   66.44   High

Unfortunately her doctor said there was nothing wrong with her liver. Instead Ati was asked to undergo a colonoscopy. She refused.

Ati and her husband came to seek our help on 8 December 2011. She presented with severe pains in her backbone and wind in her abdomen. We prescribed herbs and told her to come back and see us if the pains still persisted.

On 1 January 2012, Ati came back again. We put her on the e-Therapy to help with her pains and restricted mobility. After four days on the e-Therapy her pains had almost disappeared and her movements improved by more than 50 percent.   Watch the videos below and see for yourself the wonderous healing that took place.

 

Permission to use these videos without having to mask their faces was granted by the patient and her husband. 

Gist of our conversation

Video 1:  Life is hard with cancer in her backbone, but life was good after the e-Therapy

  1. Her mobility was torturous because of the extensive bony metastases. There was also a fracture at L4 vertebra.
  2. She had pains along the backbone and raising her arms was painful.
  3. Ati underwent the e-Therapy from 1 January to 5 January 2012. After just one session of the e-Therapy, she experienced some improvements. She felt better. She could turn her body to left or right when sleeping. The winds in her stomach had improved. However, she still felt tightness along her backbone. With more sessions of the e-Therapy her conditions improved further. She could stand up by herself without any more help.
  4. She did not suffer any side effects of the e-Therapy.
  5. After 5 days, she and her husband decided she was well enough to go home to Aceh.

Video 2: An interview with her husband

  1. After 4 days here, her condition had improved a lot. Before the therapy she had to be supported when walking, but after the first day of the e-Therapy, her condition had improved by about 30 percent.
  2. Then the next day, her conditions improved further. She had less pains and her body felt lighter. By the fifth day, she felt real good. Over all, her conditions had improved by at least 50 percent.
  3. Before she came here, she urinated standing up. Now she can squat down. At home, her mobility was restricted. She moved by sitting on the floor and pushed herself forward bit by bit. Then she had to push herself up slowly. She slowly took a step at a time to walk.
  4. At home she slept most of the time because she had to lie down. I had to carry her to the toilet. Now after the therapy she can sit up and watch the TV – but not for too long.
  5. Actually my wife is a staff in the hospital.
  6. The oncologist asked her to go for chemotherapy but we refused. Even my friends in Indonesia who are doctors advised us not to go for chemo. They asked us to go for alternative treatment. They told us, “Find someone whom you can trust and feel comfortable with.”
  7. When we came to Penang, we have already made up our mind not to go for chemo even if the oncologist in the hospital here told us to do so.
  8. After much thinking during the night and after talking to many friends we decided to seek the help of Dr. Chris. We have confidence in Dr. Chris.
  9. We would like to express our gratitude to Dr. Chris for whatever help he had given us for the past few days. We remain grateful and do not know how to repay you for this kindness.
  10. Chris: We are here to help you. There is no need to repay for what we have done for you. Don’t worry we do this not expecting to get anything in return. It is God who helped you! (Note: e-Therapy for this patient is done without any charge. But we decide who needs the e-Therapy. It is not patient’s right to demand this therapy).  My main concern is to know if what we are doing here really helped you or not.
  11. Certainly Doctor, the therapy worked and it helped my wife.  Since we came here last Sunday and it is now Thursday – 5 days, my wife’s condition had improved by a least 50 percent. Her pains are very much less and she can walk by herself. She can now turn her body and swing her legs. Before I had to hold and support her and she felt pain. Now when I hold her there is no more pain.
  12. As a Muslim, I pray that God bless you and let you live longer to help others like us.
  13. Chris: God bless you and I am really happy to see you getting well.

AcuGraph Study

As in the videos, the AcuGraph readings taken on 1st , 3rd and 5th January 2012 showed improvements.  Her total qi was higher and the energy of the various meridians was more balanced on 5th January compared to her first day, 1st January 2012 (below).

Comments

Indeed we started 2012 with a great story! But let me confess – it was a near miss.

I remember reading what a Red Indian chief said, “Two dogs live in us – one Good Dog and one Bad Dog. And they always fight with each other.” After reflecting on what we saw of Ati when she first came on 1 January, the Bad Dog said to me in the middle of the night, “Just send her home. She might just die here and that would create a lot of problems for all of us.“ Unfortunately the two dogs did not “fight”. The Good Dog remained silent. When I woke up the next morning, I conveyed this feeling to Im – we might just have to do that.

But when we saw Ati’s face and also the way she walked the next morning, we knew that the Bad Dog was wrong!

I have written an article earlier about my experience with back pains – something that I have to live with for many years now (see, http://painandwellness.org/2011/11/08/lower-back-pain-resolved-after-e-therapy/). This video clearly documented the suffering anyone with back pain has to go through. Every moment and every step represent a struggle.  I know from experience that it is hard. I can understand the suffering that Ati had to endure.

The Bad Dog in me might be right but I am glad that it did not win.

Utero-Ovary-Lung Cancer, Part 4: Health Improved After the e-Therapy

Acknowledgment: Permission to use videos and pictures without having to mask the patient’s face is granted by the family.

 

20 December 2011

  • She was unable to urinate. Her bladder felt full and distended. We advised her to seek doctor’s help if the problem persisted.
  • Her legs had no strength.
  • After the first Detox program, she felt better .

Chris:  What do you mean by better?

Patient: My fingers are not tight any more – before I felt tight. I can now move my feet. Before, I was not able to do that.

(Patient stood up with the help of her son – she was not able to this before).

21 December 2011

  • She was able to urinate – problem resolved.
  • Strength and movements of her legs improved.

What about your breathing?

P: Good. It is getting better.

Okay Ibu, you came yesterday. Compare your condition before you did the therapy yesterday and today after doing the therapy – did you feel any better?

P: Yes, I felt better. I can now stand up. I can walk. I feel more alert.

D: She started to move her bowels again.

Slowly. I believe you will benefit more in the next few days. You are getting better now. Go home and learn how to take care of yourself. Do not do anything that is not right.

D: Mama, it is only one week (on the CA Care Therapy).

I really cannot believe that it was only last week that you were in the hospital on oxygen – and now you are here.

22 December 2011

Patient has undergone three sessions of the e-Therapy.

  • Last night was unable to sleep because she had to move her bowels and also urinate (Note: on the first day before the e-Therapy she was unable to urinate).
  • Yesterday her bowel movements were six times in the day time and four times at night.
  • Because of her frequent bowel movements she was not able to sleep well. She also feel weak.
  • Her stomach felt uncomfortable – with churning pain.
  • She sometimes coughed with white phlegm.
  • Her legs still lacked strength.

23 December 2011

  • Her stomach was still painful.
  • Bowels movements had reduced to six times.
  • Her coughing had improved.
  • She still lacked strength in her legs.

24 December 2011

RJ and her family were ready to go home. In the morning we went to visit them in their apartment.

  • There was no breathing difficulty at all and she was able to sleep flat.
  • Her frequent bowel movements were resolved.
  • Sleeping was difficult.
  • Coughs still persisted.

Daughter: For the past two days, mama was able to walk to the dining table outside to have her food there. Her appetite started to improve.  Last night she had difficulty sleeping. Her coughs still persisted. But this was not as bad as when she was in the hospital.
