SN is a 40-year-old lady. Her problem started at the end of March 2016 when she found out that her right breast was swollen with rashes of the surface. There was also a lump in her right arm pit. A biopsy pn 29 March 2016 showed invasive ductal carcinoma.
At the time of this diagnosis, SN was breast feeding her baby. She did not immediately undergo any medical treatment, not until a few months later when her breast turned hard.
She started on an intensive Gerson Therapy in April 2016 based on the manual and Gerson Online Course. The therapy consisted of juicing, supplements and coffee/castor oil enema. She adopted a no salt, no oil (except flaxseed oil) diet.
SN was supposed to take 13 glasses of juices a day but she could only manage to take 8 glasses. She was supposed to do 5 times of coffee enema per day but she managed to do only 4 times a day.
She took the following:
- Acidol persin
- Potassium compound solution
- Lugol, half strength drop
- Niacin 50 mg
- Thyroid 2 grains
- B-12 tablet
- Dessicated liver
- Milk thistle
- Inf-Zyme Forte (digestive enzyme)
- Vitamin C 1000 mg
- Flaxseed oil
- Coconut oil
- Wheat germ oil
- Regulatpro Bio
- Wheat grass powder
- Chollera powder
- Chlorophyll powder
- Super blend wild berry by EzyProtein
- Natural raw food by Juvo
- Vitamin D 800IU
- Garlic pill
- Probiotic powder
Spices / Herbs (dried)
- Oregano leaves
- Thyme leaves
- Dill leaves
- Tumeric powder
- Cayenne pepper powder
- Ginger powder
- Garlic powder
All these went on for about one and a half month. It was a disaster after that! She ended up with a bloated stomach, vomiting and bad gastritis. Then she started to bleed for 2 weeks and had to be admitted into a hospital. In July, August and September, SN went in and out of the hospital for 5 times.
An endoscopy/colonoscopy was carried out. Nothing was found and the doctor said her intestine was just “too” clean.
USG of her right breast was done in May 2016 and showed multiple lesions, suspicious of malignancy.
- At 1.30 o’clock, 3-6 cm from nipple: a well-defined nodule with microcalcifications, 4.5 x 4.7 x 3.2 cm.
- At 1.00 o’clock, 6 cm from nipple: lobulated solid lesion, 2.3 cm in diameter.
- At 1.00 o’clock, 2 cm from nipple: deep seated nodule, measuring 1.8 x 1.2 cm.
- At 1.00 o’clock, 8 cm from nipple: 3 tiny nodules.
- At 1.30 o’clock, 6 cm from nipple: 9 x 6 x 9 mm nodule.
- At 1.30 o’clock, 10 cm from nipple: 8,2 x 6 mm nodule.
- At 11.00 o’clock, 4 cm from nipple: microlobulated nodule 2.2 x 3.8 cm.
- At 10.30 o’clock, 5 cm from nipple: 2 nodules, measuring 8 x 8.8 x 10 mm and 17 x 11 x 13 mm.
- At least 8 enlarged right axillary nodes, largest measuring 5.2 x 5.2 x 2.5 cm.
- 3 infraclavicular nodes measuring 11, 6.8 and 2 mm.\
- No focal solid or cystic lesions in left breast.
- No left axillary, left supraclavicular or infraclavicular abnormality.
On 2 June 2016, SN underwent a right mastectomy. Histopathology report confirmed an invasive ductal carcinoma with residual chest wall lesion. It was triple negative breast cancer — estrogen receptor negative, progestrone receptor negative and Cerb-B2 negative.
Her operation cost RM 33,000 (cover by health insurance!).
SN was asked to undergo follow-up chemotherapy. She refused.
Chris: Why did you not want to go for chemotherapy?
SN: I know of persons who had cancer and went to chemo. They all died. One was a breast cancer lady, about 50 + years old. After surgery she had chemo and was on an oral drug. Six years later the cancer came back and she died within a year. The second case was my Aunty. Also 50 + years old. It was tongue cancer and two-third of her tongue was removed. She had no chemo but underwent 30 sessions of radiotherapy. The cancer came back. She went for an “oxygen bath” in Hungary. She died within a year.
My grandma was 80 + years old. She had ovarian cancer. She underwent a hysterectomy, but no chemo. She died within 2 years.
C: I understand the phobia you have.
SN came to see us in October 2016. The cancer had recurred.
Mastectomy did not cure her cancer. Gerson Therapy and all kinds of supplements did not cure her cancer. I told SN, My herbs would not cure your cancer as well. It is indeed a very, very difficult case to handle. I suggest that you try chemotherapy!

Part 3: Did chemo helped her?
