BALT lymphoma of the lung: Chemotherapy failed. Herbs helped him.

AST is from Tanjung Balai, a town on one of the islands in Riau, Indonesia.

In April 2018, this 48-year-old man — a smoker of some 30 years standing — went for a routine medical checkup in Johor Baru, Malaysia. He had no symptom whatsoever.

An X-ray during the checkup showed something in his lung. A trucut biopsy of the right lung mass was done immediately. Histomorphology and immunoprofile pointed to a low grade lymphoma of BALT.

Bone Marrow Aspirate and Bone Marrow Trephine showed normocellular marrow (meaning, in contains a normal number of cells; neither hypocellular nor hypercellular).

(Bone Marrow Aspiration and Biopsy: The procedure known as trepanning, or trephination, of bone is the oldest surgical practice that continues to have clinical relevance in modern times. There are 2 main types of bone marrow test: 1) bone marrow aspiration — doctor sucks some liquid bone marrow cells up into a syringe. 2) bone marrow trephine biopsy — the doctor removes1 or 2cm core of bone marrow in one piece. Usually both of these tests are done at the same time. These tests are often done to find the reason for many blood disorders and may be used to find out if cancer or infection has spread to the bone marrow).

AST was referred to an oncologist of the same hospital for follow up treatment. He was sent to another hospital for PET/CT scan. The results of the scan done on 23 April 2018 indicated:

  • FDG avid mass right lung, 8.4 x 5.9 x 8.1 cm.
  • FDG avid nodule apicoposterior segment lower upper lobe, 1.0 x 0.8 cm.
  • Bronchieactatic changes seen in both lungs.
  • No mediastinal mass lesion or lymphadenopathy.

AST underwent chemotherapy. The drug regime used was: R-CHOP (Rituximab, Cyclophosphamide, Doxorubicin (hydroxydaunomycin), Vincristine (Oncovin) and Prednisolone (a steriod).

Each cycle cost RM11,000. He received a total of three cycles at three-weekly interval. The treatment completed on 14 June 2018.

After this initial treatment, AST’s father died (due to old age) and as a result he took a break from chemotherapy.

A repeat PET/CT scan was done on 15 August 2018. The result showed:

  • Previous FDG avid mass right lung has reduced intensity and was smaller 6.5 x 4.9 x 5.5 cm.
  • Previous FDG avid nodule apicoposterior segment lower upper lobe disappear.
  • New two FDG avid nodules at posterior lower left lobe, 1.5 x 1.0 cm and 1.1 x 0.9 cm.
  • New right paravertebral mass lesion, 0.8 x 0.6 cm.
  • Multiple cysts both lung fields unchanged.

Impression: progression of lesions with new lung metastases left lower lobe and small right paravertebral mass.

AST received ten times of radiation on the chest. This cost him RM 5,000.

He was told to go for more chemo. He refused. His daughter found CA Care in the internet and decided to seek our help. 

Comments 

You may wonder why I document this case. Here is the answer. For more than two decades of helping cancer patients, lung cancer is one of the most common that I get to see. And these are carcinoma type of lung cancer. During these years I did come across a few cases of lung cancer of the sarcoma (not carcinoma) type.

Primary lung sarcoma is very rare, accounting for less than 0.5% of all lung tumors. Then this week, I encountered a pulmonary BALT lymphoma, a first case in over twenty years.

I came home and started to learn what this BALT lymphoma is. Here are some information about this type of really rare lung cancer.

  • BALT means Bronchus Associated Lymphoid Tissue. It is a lymphoma found in the lung. Actually there are two types of lung lymphoma — BALT and MALT lymphoma. MALT stands for Mucosa Associated Lymphoid Tissue. The most common type of primary pulmonary lymphoma is MALT lymphoma.
  • Most pulmonary lymphomas are low-grade B-cell lymphoma.
  • Primary pulmonary lymphoma is rare, accounting for 0.5% of all lung tumors and less than 1% of all lymphomas.
  • They are generally indolent (causing little or no pain) with good prognosis.
  • Patients with BALT lymphoma have an excellent prognosis. Interestingly, surgical treatment, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, or combinations of these strategies all seem to achieve good results.
  • The most frequent reported symptoms in patients with BALT lymphoma include dry cough and difficult breathing.
  • Patients may also present with fever, night sweats and weight loss.
  • Since many patients are asymptomatic or present with vague symptoms, there is often a delay in diagnosis. It is believed that, in approximately one-third to one-half of the patients, the disease is discovered incidentally on X-ray.
  • About 14% of patients may have bone marrow involvement.
  • Since this is a slow-growing disease, it has excellent response to surgery, chemotherapy or combined treatment. Treatment provides excellent prognosis, with extremely low mortality rates. There is a report that pulmonary BALT lymphoma was successfully treated with eight cycles weekly Rituximab.

AST and his daughter came to consult us in October 2018. He looked “healthy” except for a bit of cough and difficulty in breathing. After hearing his story, I told AST that his lifestyle is reckless. While still on chemotherapy, AST told me that he was riding motorcycle up the rugged hills in the rain. This resulted in infection. I emphasized to AST that he needs to adopt a more “healthy and restrained” lifestyle if he wants to live without problems.

I cannot say what is going to happen next but after reading what pulmonary BALT lymphoma is, I want to “believe” that the herbs and a change of lifestyle  can help him. But ultimately, it all depends on AST, whether he is willing to help himself or not.

Update: AST came back to see us again after a month. He took the herbs and keep to the diet without any problem. He did not suffer any healing crisis. Did his health deteriorate this one month after defaulting on chemotherapy? No. Did he feel better after taking the herbs? Yes.

AST said he has more energy after taking the herbs. His cough is also resolved. He can now take a deep breath. Before the herbs, his breathing was swallow. AST said he would NOT go for anymore chemo. He is happy following our therapy.

Watch this video.

 

P/S:  As I am writing this story, a lady came to your centre. She was diagnosed with MALT lymphoma.This is also my first encounter with this type of cancer. In this case, the MALT lymphoma “attacked” the inner lining of her eye lid. How could that be? I wonder what has become of our world today. I hope to be able to write about this story in the near future.

Lymphoma of Nasal Cavity: No chemo or radiation. Ten years on, doing just fine.

 

 KC was 53 year old when he was diagnosed with T-cell lymphoma of the nasal cavity. His problem started with a runny nose in 2007. His nose had a swelling.

In 2008 he had difficulty breathing and production of blood-stained phlegm. He consulted a GP who said he had an infection. Antibiotics did not help him.

KC consulted an ENT at a private hospital. CT scan showed soft tissue lesion seen occupying the left nasal cavity.

A biopsy was performed. The histology report dated 24 March 2008 indicted: Left nasal blocked for long time. Left nasal mass –  atypical lymphoid proliferation found suggestive of low grade non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. The diagnosis was later confirmed by University of Malaya as Nasal type: T-cell lymphoma.

The doctor suggested 30 sessions of radiotherapy and six cycles of chemotherapy. The doctor warned KC that without treatment his nose will be blocked, his vision will be affected and he may go deaf.

KC refused further medical treatment. He came to CA Care on 4 April 2008. He told us that he has many friends who had undergone chemotherapy and radiotherapy and they all died. He would not want to go through such treatments.

KC was started on herbs: NPC 1 and NPC2, Lymphoma 1 and 2, NPC Phlegm, Capsule A and detox Tea. He was also told to take care of his diet.

One day on the herbs, KC had more bleeding from the nose. The second day, his phlegm was yellowish.

Seven weeks on the herbs KC felt his nose was better.  There was less bleeding and production of phlegm. He could sleep better. He was happy with the progress. KC said he spend time jogging from 3 to 5 pm each day.

About five months later, on 19 September 2008, KC went back to see the doctor who examined him earlier. A nasal endoscopy was done. The doctor told him it was good and there was nothing inside his nose anymore. KC came to our center on 28 September 2008 to inform us of this good news.

I asked him: Did you go and see the same doctor who examined earlier? KC confirmed that it was same ENT who did the biopsy for him.

Since then KC is well and fine.

KC does not understand much English and Hokkien. I need an interpreter to communicate with him. My question to him: How are you doing? Are you okay? He would reply: Ok, ok. No problem. I can eat, can sleep well and can go anywhere I like. 

Fast forward to November 2018 — ten years later. KC came to our centre. He is doing okay. No problem.

A few years ago, KC’s brother was also diagnosed with nose cancer. KC brought his brother to see us. Unfortunately his brother did not believe in herbs. He opted for chemotherapy and radiotherapy. He died some months later.  

Questions to Ponder

  • What could have happen if KC were to undergo chemotherapy and radiotherapy as suggested by the doctor?
  • It has been TEN years now, and KC is doing extremely well. Is the taking of herbs and changing of diet not a proven healing method?
  • KC’s brother also had nose cancer but opted for chemo and radiation. He knew first hand that KC was doing well on our therapy. Why did he not follow KC? Is it because following our therapy means he cannot eat anything he likes?

 

 

 

Tumour gone after eight months?

Praise God for this blessing and let us rejoice in this miraculous healing

19 October 2018.  Early in the morning, I switched on the computer. There is this message from ML, a Malaysian who lives in Germany.

Hello Dr. Teo,

I had my MRI of brain and thorax last week. The results are great. Doctors cannot see anything in the pictures. In other words, it can be said the tumor in the lymph node has now disappeared. Thank God that we get to know you and the herbal teas work well. Best regards.

What a great and blessed morning to read this good news. Only this morning, as I woke up from bed, I was wondering how ML was doing in Germany. Now I got a message from her!

This message humbled me. This is indeed a blessed morning. I closed my eyes and prayed. Thank you Lord for his wonderful blessing. Never in my life did I ever expect such a thing can happen. I am dumbfounded and awed by God’s generosity towards ML. Yes, miracles do happen. God is indeed great and gracious.

You can read the full detail of ML’s story here. Pleomorphic Sarcoma: Tumour shrunk after 3 months on herbs!

Let me just briefly highlight the main points.

At the end of 2017, I received an email from ML in Germany. She was diagnosed with a sarcoma in her lung. She wanted me to help her. This was after she had undergone the following medical treatments in the German hospital.

  • She had undergone a sternotomy (they cracked open the middle of her chest) to remove the tumour.
  • She had chemotherapy. Six cycles from January to June 2017.
  • The cancer recurred.
  • Chemotherapy again, two cycles from November to December 2017.
  • Cancer spread to her brain.
  • Underwent surgery to remove tumour in her brain.
  • ML refused further medical treatment and told her doctors she wanted to come back to Malaysia to take herbs.
  • The German doctors agreed that ML should try the herbs — full support, no objection whatsoever.

When I received ML’s email, my first reaction was to ask her NOT to come and see me. She lives in Germany where she can get the best possible medical attention. Also, Germany is so famous for alternative therapy for cancer. Why come to CA Care?

But since she insisted on following our therapy, I could not turn her down. Perhaps she missed “home” too. Good to be back in your own “kampong” and be among your loved ones when you are ill — right?

ML and her husband came back and I saw her in early February 2018. After seeing her medical reports I shook my head in despair. I told ML: In my twenty plus years helping cancer patients, this is my first time seeing such a cancer. I really don’t know what I can offer.

But there was no turning back. ML and her husband wanted to follow our therapy. ML started to take the herbs and stayed home in Malaysia for two months. Within this period I got to monitor her progress. She improved and looked great! Everybody was happy.

ML and her family returned to Germany.

In May 2018, ML wrote:

Dear Dr.Teo,

I had recurrence before I came to see you.  The primary tumour is located in the lymph node near my heart. The cancer metatasized to my brain. When I first met you in January. The doctor had removed the tumour in the brain but not the primary one. The primary tumour in December (2017) was 5.5 x 3.2cm. Now it has become 3.2 x 1.9 cm. 

Wonderful news indeed. Not long afterwards, ML returned to Malaysia again. Perhaps to spend more time with her parents and siblings. I got to meet her mother and sisters. Everyone was beaming. ML looked great and was doing well. Unbelievable.

I advised ML not to stress herself too much. When she goes home to Germany she should just find a part time — not full time job. And that was what ML did.

On 27 August 2018, I received this email.

Dear Dr Chris K H Teo, 

I am a doctor from the Oncology department at the University clinic in XX, Germany.

A patient of mine, Mrs. ML has consulted you and has had great success with the herbal tea and capsules you gave her. Now we are very keen on finding out what kind of herbs you used for the tea and also what the ingredients of the capsules are. Would you please list them for us?

It would be very appreciated. Thank you very much. 

Yours sincerely,

Dr. CM

What a pleasant surprise. This email gave me the impression that this German doctor is so caring! Very rare indeed. I replied her and asked  ML to give her a copy of my book as a token of appreciation.

Now, 19 October 2018 — barely eight months after starting the herbs, the tumour in her brain and chest disappeared. Can you believe that? ML suffered from a rare cancer, the first kind that I have ever encountered in twenty over years. Never in my wildest dream would I think, I would be able to help ML. Indeed, a miracle did happen. Praise God.

This is my reply to ML.

Hello L,

When I woke up a few minutes ago I was just thinking of you … how you are doing. Now I got your email. I am so glad. Thank God. It is a wonderful blessing. 

Remember, I told you not to come and see me. I was not sure that the herbs can help you or not.  Now, we are well rewarded. 

L, remember, the cancer can come back. Please do not change anything that you are doing now — continue to do what you are doing now. Take care, 

Chris

 

 

 

Breast Cancer: Is this Cookbook Medicine?

YS is a 50-year-old lady. She had many lumps in both breasts.

Although most of these lumps appear to be benign, there is one lump that does not look good. This one is found at 12-1 o’clock of the right breast and measures 13x9x12 mm in size. A biopsy indicated an invasive ductal carcinoma.

In addition,. CT showed a 7.4 x 5.7 cm nodule in her liver and multiple uterine fibroids. The liver nodule could just be a haemangioma.

I suggested that YS consult a breast specialist. YS must have the malignant lump removed — either by lumpectomy or mastectomy. I told YS: Taking herbs will not make the cancerous lump go away!

YS agreed to my suggestion. A few weeks later she came back with her medical report which stated the following:

  1. Right breast lump, 9 x 10 x 7 mm, shows grade 3 infiltrating ductal carcinoma with a predominant ductal carcinoma in situ component (80%).
  2. There is no evidence of metastatic deposits in the 3 sentinel lymph nodes studied.
  3. Pathological staging: pT1 pNo pMx
  4. Oestrogen receptors: Positive
  5. Progrestrone recptors: Positive
  6. HER2/NEU: +2 -HER2 gene is amplified.

The above shows that this  is an early stage cancer. However, after her lumpectomy, YS was asked to see an oncologist for possible follow up treatments.

YS spent almost an hour with a caring oncologist. The consultation cost RM 180.

The oncologist suggested  that YS undergo the following treatments:

  1. Twelve cycles of chemotherapy.
  2. Four cycles of Herceptin — because the tumour is positive for Her2 gene.
  3. Radiotherapy to be considered after completion of (1) and (2).
  4. Hormonal therapy — taking either Tamoxifen or Fermara for 5 years.

According to the oncologist the chance of obtaining a cure is 90 percent.

YS refused to go for these treatments and opted for our CA Care Therapy instead.

As usual, I asked YS why she did not want to go for chemo. YS explained that her grandmother died of cancer when she was small. Her father also died of lung cancer. He had all the medical treatments at the cancer hospital. So she knows what chemo is like.

Chris: So you have already made up your mind NOT to go for chemo even before you come and see me?

YS: Yes.

C: What does your husband say? Is he not unhappy that you don’t want to go for further medical treatment?

YS: He learned about CA Care from someone, so he was the one who asked me to come and see you.

Comments: 

Cookbook medicine is defined as the practice of medicine by strict adherence to practice guidelines, which may not be an appropriate substitute for clinical judgment.

Try to google, “cookbook medicine” and see what you can find.  The first entry of my search is this: 

Cookbook Medicine Is a Recipe for Disaster … An astonishing new article from JAMA Internal Medicine reveals that at least 150,000 people per year may be needlessly killed, rendered disabled, or otherwise harmed due to misdiagnoses in doctors’ offices.

Is that not scary — 150,000 people per year needlessly killed, rendered disabled or harmed by doctors? I thought you go to the doctor to get well not to be killed or harmed.

The truth is, according to an oncologist, Dr. James Forsythe,  it is okay to be killed or harmed by chemotherapy as long as the standard protocol is adhered to.

I wonder how many patients know the “rule of the game” before they undergo their cancer treatment?

Let us look at the case of YS again.

  1. She had breast cancer — early stage. So after surgery, the standard operation protocol (SOP) is (just to be safe) the patient must undergo follow up treatments.
  1. The tumour is malignant. Therefore she needs chemotherapy. Generally a patient is given 6 cycles of chemo. I don’t know why YS has to go for 12 cycles — is her cancer that serious? The medical report does not say so. Anyway, the oncologist is supposed to be “smarter” than you and me. So be it.

While chemo cost a “bomb”. It also comes with severe side effects. Generally oncologists down play these side effects, brushing it off as “it is like ant bite.”

  1. Since the tumour is HER2 positive, YS needs Herceptin injection — 4 cycles to start with. I have patients who told me that they received up to 20 to 30 injections with no beneficial effect.

Take note, each Herceptin injection is not cheap and comes with severe side effects as well. Not known to most patients,

Herceptin can damage the heart and its ability to pump blood effectively. This risk has ranged between 5% to 30%. The damage can be mild and result in either no symptoms or signs of mild heart failure, like shortness of breath.

  1. Generally, patients are told to undergo radiotherapy while on or after chemotherapy.
  1. Since the tumour is positive for Estrogen and Progesterone receptors, taking Tamoxifen or Fermara for 5 years is a must (in some hospitals, patients are told to take this for 10 years). Over the years, I have come across of ladies who suffered after taking Tamoxifen. Read the long list of side effects here: https://www.drugs.com/sfx/tamoxifen-side-effects.html

Why do you need to take Tamoxifen? The doctor says, it is to prevent recurrence. But I have patients who suffered recurrence even while taking Tamoxifen.

Having outlined all the necessary treatments, has the oncologist forgotten that YS also has multiple fibroids besides a big nodule in her liver? Perhaps doctors think these are harmful, but to me they carry a message that something is not right or normal. Yes, at CA Care we do have herbs to take care of such problems.

Over the years, I have breast cancer patients coming to our centre seeking help after medical treatments have failed them.

·        Breast Cancer: Ilani’s Message – Learn from my mistake, do not go for chemo

https://cancercaremalaysia.com/2011/03/11/435/

Let me say loud and clear that you cannot blame this “caring” oncologist for proposing the above protocol. He is just following the SOP. He wants YS to get well. And the only way he knows how to make her well is to do what he had learned in medical school. He even said that by undergoing the full course of the suggested protocol, YS has a 90 percent chance of cure!

Do you ever wonder, why there is only a 90 percent chance of cure? Patients want 100 percent chance, right? So in this case, even if YS were to undergo all the suggested treatments she still has a 10 percent chance of failure or may even be killed along the way. Yes, Dr. Forsythe did warn us: …oncologist’s main hope is that the chemotherapy will kill the cancer before it kills the patient.

Read also what Dr. John Lee wrote in his book,

If the above are depressing to you, there is an article in the New York Times that may make your day a bit brighter —

Good News for Women With Breast Cancer: Many Don’t Need Chemo https://www.nytimes.com/2018/06/03/health/breast-cancer-chemo.html

  • Many women with early-stage breast cancer who would receive chemotherapy under current standards do not actually need it.
  • “We can spare thousands and thousands of women from getting toxic treatment that really wouldn’t benefit them,” said Dr. Ingrid A. Mayer, from Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
  • Chemotherapy can save lives, but has serious risks that make it important to avoid treatment if it is not needed. In addition to the hair loss and nausea that patients dread, chemo can cause heart and nerve damage, leave patients vulnerable to infection and increase the risk of leukemia later in life.

In NIH Director’s Blog  https://directorsblog.nih.gov/2018/06/12/most-women-with-early-stage-breast-cancer-dont-need-chemo/, Dr. Fancis Collins wrote, Most women with early-stage breast cancer don’t need chemo!

  • Each year, as many as 135,000 American women who’ve undergone surgery for the most common form of early-stage breast cancer face a difficult decision: whether or not to undergo chemotherapy.
  • The new findings suggest that at least 70 percent of women with HR-positive, HER2-negative, axillary lymph node-negative breast cancer—those with low scores and most of those with mid-range scores—can safely avoid chemotherapy. (This group of patients) do not benefit from chemotherapy.

Indeed the world of cancer treatment is not straight forward. For sure it is not as easy like sitting in front of an oncologist and within minutes you get his/her recipe for your survival. It is much more complex, puzzling and confusing. Ponder seriously the words of these two outstanding breast specialists. Perhaps you can learn something from what they said. Or do you prefer to follow the advice of your oncologist since he “knows best”?

 

 

 

 

 

Lymphoma Twenty Years Ago, Still Alive and Healthy! Is that quackery and “scientifically unproven”?

JO, a 69-year-old Malaysian lady came to seek our advice after being diagnosed with melanoma (skin cancer). She was accompanied by her husband and son. As usual, my first question to them was,Who asked you to come here?JO replied,My daughter! She is a medical doctor. She has been pushing me to come and see as soon as possible.

JO’s problem started with a small, flat mole on her back that started to grow bigger. A biopsy was done and the mole removed. It was malignant. Another surgery was done to remove a wider margin. Then, after surgery what follows?  Go for chemo or herbs?

I am curious. Why must a medical doctor think of sending her mother to a herbalist?

Here is the answer. About twenty years ago JO and many members of her family (including her daughter) came to our centre because JO’s sister — OGK — had lymphoma. She refused to undergo chemotherapy and opted for our therapy.

Listen to this video.

What can we learn from this story?

Lesson one.  Is OGK still alive? Yes — very much alive! She is now 85 years old and is still healthy. Not long along OGK visited Penang and even visited Penang Hill. Meaning, she could still travel and lead a normal life. Generally patients are told that if you don’t do chemo for your cancer, you die! You would not make it to 1 or 2 years, let alone 20 years!

I told JO. Many patients came to see us. After some time, we never get to see them. My assumption is that all of them have died. Those who get well after taking our herbs do not come back to say “hello” to us. Since I don’t get to see them again, I assume that they too have died! Thanks OJ for coming back to share this amazing story of your sister!

Lesson two. How does her medical doctor daughter come into the picture? JO said she also came to our center when her auntie was ill at that time. So she had “learned” from this experience that our herbs did a lot of good to her auntie. Meaning this was a “real, teaching lesson” for her. Unfortunately, they don’t teach such things in medical school.

Lesson three. Often we read or hear people say that those who refuse medical treatment for their cancer and opted for alternative therapy are people with low health literacy (and) are often unable to discern between scientifically proven or anecdotal based therapies.

What does this phrase mean? Probably that is a polite way of saying,You must be stupid and real dumb for not going for chemotherapy or radiotherapy! You don’t even know how to differentiate between a proven and scientific therapy from just-a-story-based therapy which is unproven.

Well, I leave it up to you what you want to make out of such a statement. But from my years of experience, I believe that those who come to us are the “empowered” patients. They have seen or heard what these so-called scientific and proven therapies like chemo or radiotherapy did to their family members or friends. Many suffered and many more died after having to pay a “bomb” for these treatments. No, they are not stupid or dumb.

Read this book, it has an interesting title:

Then you may wish to read what others say about this so called proven scientific method of treating cancer:

  1. Chemotherapy warning as hundreds die from cancer-fighting drug.

Patients should be warned about the dangers of chemotherapy after research showed that cancer drugs are killing up to 50 per cent of patients in some hospitals.

For the first time researchers looked at the numbers of cancer patients who died within 30 days of starting chemotherapy, which indicates that the medication is the cause of death, rather than the cancer.

Professor David Cameron, Edinburgh Cancer Centre, Western General Hospital, Edinburgh, Scotland, said:

  • I think it’s important to make patients aware that there are potentially life threatening downsides to chemotherapy. And doctors should be more careful about who they treat with chemotherapy.
  • The concern is that some of the patients dying within 30 days of being given chemo probably shouldn’t have been given the chemo.

  1. When Treating Cancer Is Not an Option

When my husband learned he had advanced lung cancer, he didn’t even want to speak to an oncologist about chemotherapy. He saw no point in treatment that could not cure him and might make him feel worse.

Most patients with these so-called stage 4 cancers who choose to undergo chemotherapy seem to believe, incorrectly, that the drugs could render them cancer-free. That is the finding of a recent national study of nearly 1,200 patients with advanced cancers of the lung or colon. Overall, 69 percent of those with stage 4 lung cancer and 81 percent of those with stage 4 colon cancer failed to understand “that chemotherapy was not at all likely to cure their cancer,” Dr. Jane C. Weeks, an oncology researcher at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston..

In an editorial accompanying the journal report, Dr. Thomas J. Smith and Dr. Dan L. Longo pointed out that “people have an optimistic bias.” Despite a grim prognosis, this bias prompts patients to believe treatment can cure them.

“Our job is not to force them into acceptance but to encourage them to plan for the worst while hoping for the best,” Dr. Smith said. “Such patients have better outcomes — less depression and less distress, and they’re more likely to die comfortably at home.”

  1. Scientists: we will never find a cure for cancer

If all the positive cancer breakthrough headlines are to be believed, then the cure for cancer is right around the corner. But that is a far cry from reality, says Dr. Jørgen Olsen, head of research at The Danish Cancer Society.

“I think it’s an illusion to imagine that after millions of years of this disease we’ll suddenly find a solution. I don’t think that we’ll ever beat it, but I think that we’ll get it under control so that it becomes chronic but not deadly,” says Olsen.

Prominent cancer researcher, Mads Daugaard from the Molecular Pathology & Cell Imaging Laboratory at the University of British Colombia, Canada, agrees.

“We won’t find a cure, but we’ll probably reach a point where we have so many ways to attack cancer that people won’t die from it anymore,” says Daugaard.

But why can’t we find the secret weapon to beat cancer once and for all?

One reason is that cancer is not just one disease — even individual tumours can vary substantially from one patient to the next and the same type of tumour in different parts of the body can respond differently to medication.

Just like any other organism, cancer cells are trying to survive, and they are very good at it. They quickly spread to multiple parts of the body, and they mutate constantly, rendering existing medicines ineffective.

“Cancer cells are very adaptive, especially when the cancer is at an advanced stage,” says Olsen.

So what is the reality? When OGK came to seek our help and JO twenty years later, are they dumb or enlightened?

Ask this question: To be able to live a healthy life with lymphoma for twenty years without chemotherapy is still considered “unproven” and the evidence has no scientific value?

This healing story is not considered “scientifically proven” because the patient did not undergo chemotherapy! Also it is not published in peer-reviewed medical journal! You get the point?

 

 

 

 

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.

 

 

Pleomorphic Sarcoma: Tumour shrunk after 3 months on herbs!

On the last day of 2017, I received an email from a Malaysian lady in Germany. Let’s call her May. This is what she wrote:

Dear Mr. Chris Teo,

…. I would like to tell you a bit about my case. All our reports are in German. We will translate them and bring them back to you.

  • December 2016: I was diagnosed with undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma at blood vessels, which was near to my heart.  The tumor grew from my right upper pulmonary vein through the mitral valve into my left ventricle of my heart. Via complete sternotomy, the tumor was excised.(Sternotomy — surgery where sternum or breastbone in centre of chest was divided or cracked).

Sternotomy was done one more time to stop internal bleeding and to remove a hematoma.

  • January – June 2017: Cytostatic chemotherapy was done with Doxorubicin and Ifosamid for 6 cycles.
  • October 2017: From standard checkup (CT scan and MRI), it was confirmed that a tumor, 2.4 x 2.2 cm is growing close to the right upper pulmonary vein and it presses onto the vein.

This result highly indicates a local  recurrence. Sample of the tumor was taken via Endobronchial Ultrasound to pathology and it was confirmed it is the same high graded sarcoma.

  • November – December 2017: Chemotherapy (Gemcitabin and Docetaxel) for 2 cycles were done. Along with the chemotherapy, I took part in a double blind clinical study for Antibodytherapy Olaratumab).

During chemotherapy and antibody therapy  the tumor had shrunk to 1cm (result from a CT scan).

  • 27 December.2017:A CT scan of the whole body was done and metastasis was found in my brain. It was located above my left eye.
  • 2 January 2018: It is planned now to remove the tumor, as the tumor has caused brain edema which can cause stroke or bleeding anytime.

If the recovery process and the operation turns out successful and I still can fly, we will come back to find you to try your method to control the primary tumor near my heart.

Regards.

This was my reply to May.

Thank you for your email. Actually I was wondering who you are and why you want to come and see me. You are from Germany and I am in Malaysia, half a world away. 

Since Netherlands is so near you, why don’t you see Dr YY below. You can get her contact from the internet. I have read her 2 books but I have never met her personally. But that is the way to start … see her and ask for her advice. 

I also know Germany is very famous for alternative cancer therapy — why don’t you  scout around to go to these clinics — if you need help to find where and what, let me know. I may be able to help.  

Sarcoma is a very difficult problem … see, even chemo and chemo … did not work. You asked to see me in Penang — you are welcome to see me. Are you from Penang? 

Dear Mr Chris Teo,

I am from Kedah. If I am fit and the operation goes smoothly, I will come and meet you. Thank you and Happy new year.

In early February 2018, May, her husband and her mother came to our center.

https://youtu.be/k9D0BGSH5DI

May was prescribed a variety of herbal teas for her brain and sarcoma. Once in a while, I received updates of May’s progress.

Hello Uncle Chris,

8 Feb: I started soft tissue tea. My thigh has less pain. A bit pain at my left chest.

9 Feb:  I feel some short pain at my left chest. When I first swallow food or water, my tracea is pain.

10 Feb:  Same like 9.2

11 Feb:  My thigh is less pain. But still pain when I swallow food or water.

12 Feb:   My thigh still has a bit pain. Still pain when I swallow food and water.

13 Feb:   still pain when I swallow food and water.

14 Feb:   My cheek and neck is itchy and red. My thigh has no more pain.

15 & and 16 Feb:  My cheek and neck still itchy and red. Still a bit pain when I swallow food.

17 Feb:   No more pain when swallow food or drink water. My cheek and fore head are still itchy and red.

18 Feb:  Still itchy at fore head and cheek.

19 Feb:  Light pain at my left chest. A bit hard to explain.

On 28 March 2018 May, her husband and mother dropped by the centre before returning to Germany. And while in Germany May did write once a while to update us.

On10 May 2018, this is what she wrote:

Hello Dr.Teo,
I have check up and it shows that the tumour has reduced its size to half and no metatasis. A very big thanks to you from me and my whole family. My oncologist here in Germany is so curious about my therapy and would like to know more. So I gave him your website.  They haven’t see such improvement before with chemo and radiation especially with my rare sarcoma. Thank you once again.

Reply: You wrote: I have check up and it shows that the tumour has reduced its size to half and no metatasis.

Can you tell me what does this mean? Before the herbs you have tumour ? Where? What is the size?

Now, what did the doctor do? CT or MRI … then what is the size?

10 May 2018:

Dear Dr.Teo,

I had recurrence before I came to see you.  The primary tumour is located in the lymph node near my heart. The cancer metatasized to my brain. When I first met you in January. The doctor had removed the tumour in the brain but not the primary one.

The primary tumour in December was 5.5 x 3.2cm. Now it has become 3.2 x 1.9 cm. 

Comments

  1. When I received May’s email, my first reaction was to ask her to see other alternative healers — Germany is so famous for alternative medicine — why come to CA Care? But since she insisted of following our therapy, I could not turn her down. Perhaps she missed “home” too. Good to be back in your own “kampong” and be among your loved ones when you are ill — right?
  1. Below are pictures of the mass around her heart (top) and a tumour in her brain (below). After seeing this I shook my head in despair. As I told May, in my twenty plus years helping cancer patients, this is my first time seeing such a cancer. I really don’t know what I can offer May. But as you can see from this report, the herbs gave very encouraging results.

Sarcoma in blood vessel around heart

Sarcoma spread to brain.

Note:  Undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma (UPS), is a type of soft tissue cancer. The word “undifferentiated” means that the cells don’t resemble the body tissues in which they develop. The cancer is called pleomorphic because the cells grow in multiple shapes and sizes.

While sarcomas are rare tumors, they do represent one of the most common soft tissue malignancies in adults. Soft tissue sarcomas can develop in blood vessels and in deep skin, fat, muscle, fibrous or nerve tissues. The cancer typically becomes quite large over a period of weeks or months, sometimes growing quite rapidly. The cancer can spread to other locations in the body, most often the lungs.

  1. May told her German doctor that she wanted to come home to undergo our therapy. The doctor did not object to her taking herbs! After all the doctors in Germany had done their best — even surgery and chemotherapy failed — what else could they offer her except more of the same treatments.

From the start, I make it clear to May that I would not be able to cure her — to help her, probably yes. I know sarcoma is a very difficult cancer to handle. But, right in my head, I know that I had some wonderful successes with sarcoma. Read these stories if you want to know more: https://cancercaremalaysia.com/category/sarcoma/

  1. Now that the tumour has shrunk rather significantly, just after three months of herbs, I pray that things become better and better with time. But May will have to help herself. She should keep on doing what she has been doing after seeing us. Don’t ever think that she can do and eat anything she likes!
  1. This statement that May wrote, My oncologist here in Germany is so curious about my therapy and would like to know more, tickled me a bit! Most doctors/ oncologists generally don’t want to know! If you don’t want to know you are like “a frog under the coconut shell”, right?
  1. I must say frankly, I would not know what is May’s future but for what it is we need to lift up our eyes to Heaven and praise the Almighty God for this healing. God bless.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Breast Cancer: Should I take tamoxifen after my lumpectomy?

The year 2018 started with a common but peculiar phenomenon which we long know. What is that? For the past two months, most of the patients who came to seek our help either had breast cancer or liver cancer! Later we will see this trend changes to some other cancers.

Breast cancer patients who came fall either one of these two groups.

  1. Those who found lump (s) in their breast. Did a biopsy followed by surgery. Then doctors asked them to go for chemo, radiation and/or take tamoxifen. That’s the classical standard recipe. What to do now after the surgery?
  1. Those who have undergone all the medical treatments — surgery, chemo, radiation and hormonal therapy. These treatments failed. So, what to do now?

Let me share some stories. By doing this, I hope you can learn from the experiences of others. In life we don’t need or don’t have time to repeat the mistakes that others before us go through. So, be wise.

This is the story of Ms A.

About 20 years ago Ms A had a 5 mm lump in her breast. A biopsy was done and the result turned out to be negative. Unfortunately the so-called non-cancerous lump was not removed.

Fast forward to January 2018, Ms A felt the lump which she was keeping in her breast was not “normal” in size. She went to consult a surgeon who did a lumpectomy (removal of the lump only). Some of the lymph nodes were removed and were found to be “clean”.

Unfortunately, the tumour was malignant and was positive for hormone receptors. Because of that the doctor wanted Ms A to take tamoxifen for 5 to 10 years.

Ms A was referred to an oncologist. She told the oncologist that she preferred to take herbs instead of tamoxifen. The oncologist replied, It is up to you to decide. 

Ms A was unsure which path to take. She wrote me an email. Since she was coming home to Penang for the Chinese New Year, she wanted to drop by our centre to ask for advice. Okay, that was fine with me.

Ms A and her husband came. They wanted to know my view on tamoxifen. Listen to our conversation that morning.

 

Comments 

What do I do now? Follow what my breast surgeon asked me to do or follow my heart? 

My response:

I am afraid I cannot give an outright answer. You have to make your own decision and you bear the consequences of that decision. If the cancer comes back again or your suffer the side effects of the treatment, it is you who have to suffer, not others.

But to help you get out of this dilemma I suggest you do the following.

  1. Discuss the problem with your family members. Ms A has three children and one of them is a pharmacist. According to the pharmacist daughter, that is what breast cancer patients do — they take tamoxifen!

But more important is your husband. If you cannot get your husband on your side — to give you a hundred percent support — then, your “battle” is lost even before going to the battle field!

Accordingly to Ms A’s husband, tamoxifen is scientifically proven and herbs are just supplement. If this is what it is, my advice is don’t ever think of taking herbs! Go for the “scientific” stuff.

  1. To get a balanced view, my advice is to read as much as you can! Educate yourself. It is your health and it your life.

But the problem with most people is they don’t like to read — they don’t want to learn the truth for themselves. They prefer to just listen to way others say and do what others tell them to do. That is, to led by the nose.

Of course, there are others who believe they are already smart and they don’t need to know more, especially if it is not seen to be “scientific” (whatever that means!).

  1. When in this desperate situations when you don’t know what to do, I suggest that you turn to your god for help. Pray and ask for guidance. Of course, some people will laugh at me! There also some people who are already angry with god for “giving them this cancer” — why pray some more?

Well, I understand. Each of us has our own ideas about the Divine. For me, I know that there is a God who is loving enough to help you — to help and guide if you sincerely ask for His help — the way that this same God helps me in my work with cancer patients for the past twenty over years.

With these three suggestions I told Ms A to go home, without prescribing her any herbs. If you need my help in the future, you can come back and see me again. 

Let me remind everyone who wants to come and see us. Our therapy is not easy to follow. If you are not fully committed or are half-hearted in your belief, my advice is to go and see someone else for help.

For those who believe that tamoxifen is “scientifically proven” and herbs are hocus pocus, you may wish take a pause and read a bit more.

  1. Go to the net and read what others, you are in the same boat like you, wrote about tamoxifen: https://community.macmillan.org.uk/cancer_types/breast-cancer/f/38/t/140439

Posted by Lizzy4u, 19 October 2017

I’ve been on Tamoxifen for 10 months and have awful side effects. The worst being joint pains, so bad that I can hardly move at times. My oncologist said to stop the Tamoxifen for 6 weeks and see if there is a difference… I am stiff when I wake up, then once I get moving it eases off but then if I’ve been on my feet longer than an hour it get worse and worse. My daughter said to me the other day she has not seen a day go past that she’s not seen me limping. I’m also experiencing the most awful hot flushes that I get no sleep and I’m exhausted all the time, have itching when I have these flushes. Etc

Posted by LondonLass, 19 October 2017

Hi Lizzy4u, I had exactly the same issues as you. I lasted 20 months but that was only because my oncologist kept pushing me to keep going, his view was the first 2 years were the most important. I won’t go into what happened with me as it doesn’t help you. I will however say there are other options!

However, I think you have to bear in mind that all of these treatments will cause menopausal symptoms and of course it’s worse for us as we are being forced into menopause! …. Worth discussing everything with your oncologist, the more information you can get the better. You need to be able to make an informed decision. At the end of the day it’s your body, your life and your decision! I know how it feels to feel so old and unhappy!

  1. If you want to know what happened to those patients who came to CA Care after being on tamoxifen … read these two stories …..

No more tamoxifen for me

Breast Cancer: Part 4: Radiation Helped but Did Not Cure, Tamoxifen Disastrous

 3. If you think alternative healers are just quacks, read what some researchers and doctors have got to say about tamoxifen.

Pierre Blais, a well known drug researcher, said: Tamoxifen is a garbage drug that made it to the top of the scrap heap.

And here are more for you to digest ….

 

 

 

 

 

Who asked you to come here?

Two sisters came to seek our help.

Younger Sister was diagnosed with breast cancer and had undergone a mastectomy. She was then asked to go for follow up treatments — 6 cycles of chemo and 26 sessions of radiation. Then she needs to take tamoxifen for five years.

Younger Sister lives in Hong Kong and she does not know what to do next. She decided to come to Penang and ask our opinion.

As usual, my first question is: Who asked you to come and see us?

Younger Sister: My mom used to see you!

Elder Sister explained: About 15 years ago, I came to see you with the medical reports. My mom didn’t come. My mom consumed your medication for like a year. She is still alive until today. She is 85 something now.

(Note: Mom had breast cancer when she was 69 years old).

 

 

A few days after the above episode, another two sisters came with their mother.

Chris: You are from Medan. Who asked you to come here? 

Daughter: A relative. She came here for her treatment. Now cured! 

C: You know her personally? 

D: Yes.

D2: Praise God she is cured!

C: And she is still alive?

D: Ya, alive.

C: Healthy?

D: Yes, healthy.

C: What cancer?

D: Breast.

C: When was that?

D: About two years ago.

 

Comments 

At CA Care — sometimes the morning is most depressing — to see how patients suffer after all the treatments that they had gone through — but sometime it could be a blessed morning, knowing that some patients benefited from our therapy.

When we first started CA Care in 1995, we were confronted with strong opposition that herbal therapy is just quackery!  Not proven, not scientific. If at all there is good result, it is due to luck.

Watch this video!

We have come a long way since this video was broadcast live over the national TV in 1999.

Over the past twenty plus years, I have produced almost a thousand videos in YouTube and written over seven hundred case studies to show that the results we achieved are real. Herbal therapy is not quackery! To me, it is all about God’s blessing.

Let me close with these quotations:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Health improved after two weeks on herbs. But will this healing last?

Two weeks ago, I posted the story of Rose, a 49-year-old Indonesian lady who had a big lump in her breast. She underwent surgery twice because the lump kept recurring. Then the non-cancerous massed turned cancerous. It spread to her lungs.

Rose was told to go for chemotherapy. She refused and came to seek out help.

Two weeks on our therapy, Rose got better. Listen to what her husband told us.

1. The swelling of her hands and feet subsided.

2. She can now stand up without difficulty and can walk around the house compound. This is something that she could not do earlier. Also before the herbs, she would feel breathless and sweat a lot even with a little bit of movement. All these are gone!

3. Her appetite has improved.

4. Her cough with itchy throat was gone.

5. Her sleep has improved.

Improvement does not mean cure!

I cautioned Rose’s husband that improvement does not mean cure. The family must always be careful — try to maintain this healing momentum so that more healing can go on without any disruption. Take care of the diet and do not eat anything you like even if you feel great.

My experience over the years tell me that most patients take things for granted after feeling better. Let me relate two stories which are still fresh in my mind that make me real “sick” — to be more precise, they break my “heart” !

A lady came after 10 chemos and 2 surgeries did not help her. Her oncologist told her that she would be lucky if she could live to celebrate Christmas (i.e. just a few months). She wrote me an email asking for help. I told her I would not be able to help her since she is from a faraway country. She insisted on coming to see us. Okay, come!

After four days on the e-therapy and herbs her pains were gone. She could go shopping the whole day. Before the therapy she could not even sit down without pain, let alone shopping!

She returned to her country and continued taking the herbs. Her condition improved. In December I reminded her to go and wish her oncologist “Merry Christmas” — after all she was NOT supposed to live that long anyway!

Then I sensed something was not right when she wrote to complain that she preferred taking the herbal extract instead of herbs that have to be brewed. I ignored her request. In the next mail, she wrote to say that she only wanted to take the capsules. She did not want the herbal teas anymore, giving the excuse that she could not afford to pay for the herbal tea — capsule okay! My reply: Please go and find someone else to help you. You can stop taking my herbs.

Not long after this “blow”, another lady came to seek our help. According to her husband, he found CA Care while browsing the internet trying to find a “cancer home” for his wife since no one is at home to take care of her. She was in severe pain and was not even able to sit down to talk to me without much discomfort. We put her on the e-therapy. Within a few days her pains were almost gone and she could sit down and talked like a healthy person. The e-therapy was discontinued since it was Saturday and Sunday. On Monday, she had pains again and we continued with the e-therapy. I think she got better.

On Tuesday she did not turn up saying that she had diarrhoea (healing crisis?). On Wednesday her husband came to take her file away. I did not even have a chance to meet him and know what has gone wrong. Anyway, the e-therapy that she did at our centre was free of charge!

In Rose’s case, it is wonderful to know that she has improved after just two weeks on herbs. But please don’t take for granted that we have a “magic portion” to cure her. Healing is your responsibility. We can help you but you must “work and earn ” for your well being. More important, don’t demand healing on your own terms! Please learn to be grateful for all the blessings that you receive. Don’t take your healing for granted!

 

Sarcoma Metastatised to Lung: Declined chemo. Still fine after 18 years!

In 2006 (wow! That’s about twelve years ago!) I wrote an article Healing of High Grade Soft Tissue Sarcoma Metastasized to Lung by Herbal Therapy in the Internet Journal of Health. 

http://ispub.com/IJH/5/2/11918.

This is a story about John (not real name) — 39 years old then. John’s problem started in February 1999 when he detected a small lump in his thigh. Since there was no pain he ignored it until the swelling increased to the size of a ping-pong ball some months later.

In March 2000, John underwent a surgery to remove the cancerous lump. The doctor resected quite a lot of the tissues out – the size of a “Milo tin”. The doctor tried to take out as much as possible, including the muscles – because it had already spread.

Histopathology report indicated a malignant tumour with features consistent with high grade soft tissue sarcoma. The doctor told John to get his papers in order and that he would probably have only 6 months to live.

About 3 months after the surgery, John sought a second opinion and was told by the second surgeon that the tumour was not completely removed during the first surgery. John underwent a second surgery. This was followed by 21 sessions of radiotherapy.

On both occasions – after the first and second surgeries, John declined chemotherapy.

About a year and half later, the cancer metastatised to his lung.

John underwent a third surgery to remove the nodules in his lung and the surrounding tissues. He again declined chemotherapy and opted for CA Care Therapy instead — that was in April 2000.Six years later, on 1 November 2006 I had the privilege of meeting John and interviewed him.

Chris: What made you so adamant in not wanting do chemotherapy?

John: I held on to my conviction of not doing chemotherapy after reading your book. You mentioned that after going through chemotherapy it does not really guarantee a cure or success. Chemotherapy kills both the good and the bad cells. The immune system will be weakened and compromised and you would probably succumb to the treatment rather than the disease itself. Based on that, I made my firm decision – no chemotherapy. If I had not read your book, I would have gone for chemotherapy because I had reached a point where I was about to say “yes” to chemotherapy. But then I pulled back. At that time the doctor was telling me that I could not afford to wait any more – he was putting pressure for me to go for chemotherapy.

Since then I have not heard from John and he was out of my “radar”.

Then came one blessed morning just before the Chinese New Year (2018).

A lady and her family came to seek our help for her cancer. As usual, my first question was, Who ask you to come here? 

The son replied, My friend. He was your patient many years ago. He had a lump in his thigh and then the cancer spread to his lung.

Chris: I can’t remember this case  … oh, oh … a man? I remember now — I think I talked to him once. You mean he is still alive? 

Son: Yes, doing well. He is a fighter and he takes care of his diet up to this day.

Listen to our conversation that morning.

 

 

 

She refused to undergo chemo after her mastectomy

Ros is 55-year-old Indonesian lady. In early January 2016, she found a lump in her left chest just above her breast. A doctor in her hometown requested her to do a biopsy. She refused. She did nothing after that.

Some eight months later, Ros had no choice but had to consult the doctor again since the lump had grown bigger.

A biopsy was done, followed by a total left mastectomy.

Histopathology confirmed a malignant tumour — ER negative, PR negative and HER-2 positive.

After the surgery Ros had to be hospitalised for one month due to complications with her diabetes.

Two weeks after being discharged, Ros had to be hospitalised again for 27 days due to fluid accumulation in her breast.

By November 2016, Ros was okay. She was scheduled for 6 cycles of chemotherapy. She refused the treatment.

I asked her: Why don’t you want to go for chemotherapy?

Ros replied: My son works in the hospital! I saw patients who had undergone chemotherapy. The treatment did not cure them.

Ros and her family came to seek our help in mid-December 2016 after being told by another patient about us.

Six Months Later

Ros’s daughter came back to see us again. Her mother’s health was restored.

I asked: Is she better now compared to the time when she first came here?

Daughter: She is far better off now than before taking the herbs.

Her back pains are gone. Stomach discomforts due to wind was resolved. Her CEA is at 1.9 and CA15.3 at 6.2.

Comments

So far so good. Everyone is happy. But let me remind all patients this. This good time may not last forever. Please take care of yourself. Ros is not out  of the woods yet. Her healing journey has just started. The cancer can recur anytime if she is not careful.

Many patients assume that they are “cured” after awhile. Then  they will go back to their own ways of life and eating habits. Some would stop taking the herbs.

Well, we have a choice. We can do our best to heal ourselves or we can go back to our old ways of life.

In Ros’s case, I have a few concerns.

  1. Ros is obese. I am afraid this is not a positive factor for her healing. She has a long way more to make her life heathy.
  2. The good part of this story is that Ros had undergone a mastectomy. We hope that all the cancerous tissue had been removed. But who can say that with certainty?
  3. The bad part of this story is that we don’t know if the cancer had already spread elsewhere. No one can tell. When she presented with back pain, I feared that the cancer had gone to the bone? But with the herbs, the pains were gone.
  4. The doctor said it was a Stage 2 cancer. But how “correct” is he in his prognosis?
  5. Will the cancer come back again? We hope not but the chances could be high that this can happen. We need to take note that this is a double negative tumour.
  6. In this case, would it not be better if Ros undergo chemotherapy as a “double” insurance? Your guess is as good as mine. In fact, during her daughter’s visit, she brought another case of breast cancer. This patient had undergone rounds and rounds of chemos (about a dozen cycles at least). The treatment did not cure her.

So, Ros understood what chemo could do for her!

 

 

Fixing Frequent Urination Problems

Tom is a 76-year-old American. He found Penang a lovely place and decided to live here temporarily!

One day in March 2017, Tom came to CA Care to ask for help. One of his problem is frequent urination. For umpteen years (he could remember how many!) he had been deprived of a good sleep having to wake up 3 to 4 times a night to urinate. Generally his routine was to go to bed at about 11 p.m. Then every one to two hours he had to wake up to go to the toilet. With such disturbed sleep he woke up the next day “exhausted” feeling “terrible”.

Tom said, for him to go to bed is something he did not look forward to because he knew what would come after that!

Tom had been living with this problem for years. I asked him: Did you go to someone for help? Tom replied, No.

Tom explained that he had been to the doctor who examined him for prostate problem. No, he did not like the way the medical people treated him! So for years he just let it be.

When Tom presented me with this problem, I suggested that Tom took our herbal tea, A-Kid-6 which is formulated for such a problem. I also warned Tom that the taste of the tea is bitter and awful. Not many non-Orientals could tolerate that. Also, he can just try the herbs for a week or two and see what happens.

Tom did exactly that.

Tom updated me of his progress via e-mail. Below is what he wrote:

Day 4 on herbs

IT IS WORKING !!!  I ONLY GOT UP TWICE LAST NIGHT AND SLEPT FROM 10:30 PM UNTIL 6:30 AM.  I cannot remember the last time I slept 8 hours.  Fantastic and I feel much better this morning.

Day 5:

Unbelievable !  I … went to bed at 9:30 PM.  Had to get up twice and then slept until 7:30 AM.  Fantastic.  10 hours sleep.  I do not think I have had 10 hours sleep in the last 40 years.

Day 10:

Sleep and up to urinate has been up and down.  Last night was ok. Got 8 hours but up 3 times. Had a couple of nights last week that were bad again.  Little sleep and up 4 to 5 times.

Day 11:

Did you pray for me last night? I slept about 7.5 hours BUT ONLY HAD TO GET UP ONE TIME !

Day 12:

Good news.  Last night I got 8 hours sleep and only got up 1 time !  Thank you !!!

Tom shared his story in this video below.

Thank you Tom for sharing your story!

I am sure there are many others out there who have problems like Tom. But I hope they are not like Tom — having to suffer for years and years!

From this story, I hope you know that such problem can be easily fixed! And it can be fixed cheaply too! Come to CA Care and you don’t have to pay for any consultation fee. As for the A-Kid-6 herbal tea it is less than RM100 (about USD 22.00) for two weeks.

But to be fair, there is no guarantee that this herbal tea can definitely solve your problem although we know that this herbal tea did help many others like Tom.

When I prescribed A-Kid-6 to patients, one thing I always remember is how I learned to solve this problem. After all I only work with cancer, not urination problem. However, there are many cancer patients who presented with frequent urination problems.

Some years ago, Dr.  Adrian Larsen, President of Miridia Technology Inc., USA, donated us a unit of AcuGraph 3 for our research at CA Care. We used this tool to evaluate the energy balance of various organs in the body.  From this tool, we have come to learn that frequent urination could be the result of low or split bladder median (see: https://ejtcm.com/2011/03/25/low-or-split-bladder-meridian-may-result-in-frequent-urination/). Herbal tea like A-Kid-6 has been shown to restore the bladder energy.

CA Care is ever grateful to Dr. Larsen for his generosity. I told Tom, At least now I have a chance to help his fellow American! Dr. Larsen should know this!

 

 

 

 

 

Brain Tumour & Diabetes: 1. His prayer answered in an unexpected way!

In an earlier article, I wrote about one bad morning at CA Care —  sharing with you a disappointing story. But luckily, not all days are like that — although you need to know that only 30 percent of patients who come to see us benefit from our work. The remaining 70 percent don’t. They just cannot benefit because of all kinds of reasons or excuses that they have. But to be frank, I am well prepared for such disappointments because I know I cannot win all! And most important of all, I know I cannot change the attitudes of human beings!

Not all days are cloudy though. Let me share with you what a great and blessed morning is like. A morning like this is worth many times the bad mornings!

Amar (not real name) is a 49-year-old Indonesian. In early December 2016 he had two seizures. He was unable to talk and had to be hospitalised. His blood sugar was extremely high, more than 600 mg/dl. Amar was asked to take three medications — Nocid, Eclid and Glucophage. In addition he had to be given insulin injection, Novorapid,10 units three times per day.

A CT scan and MRI on 9 December 2016 showed a 4.26 x 5.16 x 2.2 cm lesion in his brain. This was diagnosed as vertex meningioma. The doctor in Jakarta asked Amar to undergo an operation but he refused.

In January 2017 Amar and his wife came to a private hospital in Penang. He was asked to continue taking his medication:

  1. Dilantin(phenytoin) — an anti-epileptic drug.
  2. Hepamax — for his liver.
  3. NovoRapid® — insulin injection.

A month later, February 2017, he came back to Penang again with the main purpose of undergoing  an operation. This surgery would cost him RM35,000.

Chris: Did you ask the doctor if the surgery would cure you?

Patient: The doctor said some parts of the lesion can be removed! Even that the most serious risk of such surgery is getting a stroke. In addition, my hands and legs may become weak.

The night before the scheduled operation, Amar and his wife prayed to God for guidance! If possible, he would not want to undergo the operation!

Listen to this video!

 

 

Who ask you to come to our centre?

Gist of our conversation

Amar: The night before my scheduled operation, my wife and I prayed telling God that if possible, I do not want to undergo this operation. But I knew in my heart that this was not possible! After our prayer, that same night, we were told to come and see Pak Teo first before undergoing any operation.

Chris: Who asked you to come and see us?

A: My wife’s friend in Jakarta.

C: (Asking the wife). Tell us what happened.

Wife: I phoned my best friend in Jakarta that night. I told her about my husband’s operation. Then she told me, Don’t do any operation yet. Go and see Pak Chris first. She gave me your address. The next morning, we came to see you. I showed your address to the Grab driver and he brought us here.

C: So, you did not do the operation?

A: No. I went to see the doctor in the hospital that morning and told him that I was not ready to undergo the operation. I need some time to sort things out.

C: The doctor was not angry that you decided to postpone the surgery?

A: No. So we came to see you after that.

C: When you came here, did you believe what we told you?

W: Yes, absolutely.

Comments

At CA Care we encourage patients to talk to their God — never mind who you believe in. Just pray to God to help you. We believe if you sincerely pray, God will answer your prayer! But remember, the answer you get may not be what you want!

Many patients told us many “amazing stories” how they came to know us. One lady once told me that she was very desperate and did not know what more to do for her sister who had been hospitalised for some two months already. So that night she prayed (she is not a Christian!) before she went to sleep (in the hospital taking care of her sister). The next morning, she switched on her lap-top. She could not remember what she did but there it was the CA Care website that popped out in front of her!

I once asked a lady who go home and pray to her God first before deciding to take our herbs. She replied, I have already done that. The Goddess of Mercy (Kuan Yin) told me to come and see you!

In this case, you can hear for yourself how Amar and his wife came to know CA Care just the night before Amar was to undergo his brain operation! It is just like a fairy tale, but is that not a miracle? God works in mysterious ways, if only you sincerely ask Him for guidance and help.

But don’t misunderstand. Coming to CA Care is not the ultimate answer. We are not bomohs (sharmans) or magicians. The tumour will not go away. We cannot cure your cancer — get that straight and clear! Nevertheless many patients who came to seek our help benefited from our advice and what we do. Some live a normal life without the surgery!

In the next article, let us hear why Amar was  “fortunate” not to undergo his surgery yet!

 

 

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.
