Dr Derry from Vicotria on Vancouver Island has a book out about Breast Cancer and his research shows that taking 1 to 2 drops of iodine a day in a glass of water can help to prevent breast cancer. His book is very informative and gives a scientific reason why it works. I have been using Iodine this way for 6 years. I also use it on moles, tags and other skin conitions and it helps to make them small again. I have used it for sore throats too and it works wonderfully. Just use it sparingly as it can be toxic with too much use.
I am trying out Lugols iodine 5% for a recent breast cancer diagnosis.
Soaked some in gauze and wrapped to skin overnight. In the morning - iodine patch on skin- then blister rips off, leaving raw patch. I apply a dry dressing daily. Hope to get barrier cream.
Anyone used Lugol's to treat this condition? Pls let me know.
In the States we can buy hot cold packs that are made up of pea sizes gel beads. There is one here that comes with a belt with a pocket that you can Velcro to your body so the heat goes to the spot you want it to be. The gel peas make it so that the pack shapes to your body. Heat will help drive the lugol's to a greater depth. Heat also kills cancer cells. So check your Boots for a heat pack. DMSO also helps to move the iodine into you. DMSO will also break through cancer cells and carry the iodine in.
Cut out all sugar and junk food. Cut down on carbohydrates like crisps. Sugar will feed your cancer because cancer cells require 8 times as much glucose as your normal cells need so starve it.
Look into Ted's alkaline drinks here in EC and also take L-lysine up to 5 grams per day spread out.
Protect your liver with silymarin and alpha lipoic acid.
If you plan to do chemo therapy and/or radiation therapy get vitamin C powder and start taking it throughout the day in mega doses to protect yourself from the damage it does.
Keep asking your questions here and keep learning how to stop and reverse the cancer. Treat your body and not just the cancer.
The lugol's might be too harsh to apply directly to the skin. Mix it with a bit of organic coconut oil. Eat bitter apricot seeds as well up to 30a day.. Combine with zinc, curcumin, vit c and selenium.
Okay here is my recipe for topical Lugol's iodine.
Use a clean glass dropper bottle. Put 10 dropper fulls of 5% Lugol's iodine into the bottle. Add a few grains of vitamin C powder until the iodine goes clear. Then add 20 dropper fulls of aloe vera to the mix. Add a dash of zinc chloride to the mix and put the cap on loosely and swirl until it dissolves. You will feel it heat up. Lastly add twice the amount DMSO to what you have. Let it sit for a few minutes.
This does not make very much but you have to use it up or the mix will separate and turn amber again so you will need to use it up.
When you apply to the skin you will not need very much of this on a spot. Just a few drops will do. If this still burns add more aloe vera and less zinc.
I worked this recipe out from something that Ted wrote. So thanks to him I have it.
I hope this helps.
You add several drops of the iodine in water and drink it 2-3times a day. Also breast cancer is usually high estrogen, try progesterone cream.
A friend was diagnosed with breast lump that was metastasizing. The Prayer Warriors have been praying for her. God has provided so many ways for us to get our healing, so I suggested to her to add to the prayer, a few drops of Clove Oil mixed in Olive Oil. Our olive oil bottle holds about ¼ cup of oil. I told her to anoint the breast area each day, She said she missed some days . However, two months after using this mix and lots of people praying for her, her doctor reported that the lump has decreased in size. The doctor was supposed to be scheduling surgery if necessary, but did not. he just told her to keep on doing what she's doing.
Here is a study about Cloves Tumors and Cancer
Yes, there are so many ways to get your healing. I was healed of a lump a some years ago after going on an all vegetable fast for seven days. Take your choice.
Paint the iodine on. You don't need to bandage it on. Painting it on will allow skin to absorb. Take modified citrus pectin.
” Modified Citrus Pectin (MCP), a modified polysaccharide derived from citrus fruit peel, has shown antimetastatic properties in many cancers, including breast cancer. MCP is thought to reduce metastatic potential by inhibiting galectin-3 which may block the “loss of anchorage” phase of metastasis (anoikis”
NO sugars or carbs. Eat clean!
Iodine really helps externally and internally. Get some Lugols iodine and do two drops in water and take other companion supplements.
I did not have cancer but seriously painful lumpy breasts. I went to several doctors and they didn't have a clue except dole out pain meds. Found out hypothyroid later. Painted iodine on, got thyroid meds, problem gone. Check your thyroid many doctors will ignore you if in range. Stop the Thyroid madness has symptoms and tests. Do not get one test done, get another.
Magnesium chloride (MC) has many potential health benefits and in the link to the full study below it is suggested that breast cancer might be one.
In the study they compared the effects of MC with cisplatin. The cisplatin was more effective and comes with side effects and can only be given for so long, whereas MC can be taken indefinitely and side effects are more likely to be other health benefits. Being replete with MC may be a safe and effective preventative or it may be a great addition to a breast cancer treatment strategy. Definitely worth the read and consideration.

Miscellaneous Remedies and Supplements
over a year I was diagnosed with DCIS which is stage 0 breast cancer, non-invasive or pre-cancerous. The surgeons of course suggest masectomy. After studying internet, library, bookstore and disecting every word on pathology report I am convinced of diet change. i pretty much stopped drinking red wine (so much for red wine being good for you) I'm slim already but since going organic on meat, eggs, milk and taking Vitamins b, c, d,e, germanium, magnesium, beta-carotene, coq10, turmeric, DIM, liquid fish oil, ground flax seed, progesterone cream, I have in the past year lost my little stomach, I go to the toilet regularly which I never ever did sometimes more than once, my hair is thicker, my skin on my face is tighter, the stiffness I get in my joints at the end of the night is gone, I have stamina the entire day being able to move about without tiring and even not getting dizzy in the summer heat. I get lots of comments about my skin color looking good and it's all true. I can't pin point which supplement is doing what. I always used olive oil and love my green vegetables but obviously that wasn't enough to keep cancer from creeping in. I also use red palm oil (lots of tocotrienols and vitamin A) coconut oil too, I've drunk plenty of apple cider vinegar, it's like a shot of alcohol for me haha. I did have a urinary infection recently and decided to go the natural path using mannose-d. It seemed to work. I even found oil-pulling on your website. It really does make morning mouth go away. I'm a born again nutritionist. I want to spread the word to everyone. I've become obsessed with hydrogenated oil too. My boy is having a hard time getting snacks from me when I have to check every ingredient. Unfortunately for me, I will not go back to check on DCIS which by the way is 15% chance in 10 yrs of becoming invasive and 1.5% chance of spreading. Oh also my bosums are softer too. They were always lumpy my entire life. I've taken other things through the year like cesium, kefir, noni juice and I just bought aloe vera juice and grapefruit seed extract. Anything that could be good for you I do it. Ginger in hot water is great. I'm almost 48 and am feeling younger every month. I practically feel like a teenager again. If I do go off my routine like eating snacks or drinking a little wine I will get puffy faced in the morning or have a funny taste in my mouth. I don't think many women are as foolish or wise as I am in studying big time on this subject. The more I read the more I was exposed to and thanks to your website I have the oil-pulling to thank you for. This site is great for information. Thanks a lot
Dr. Bernhard Weber of NaturMedNet (www.naturmednet.de/) (the German cancer clinic using electro-carcinoma therapy against cancer) says they have success in 30-70% of their cases. Destroying tumors with electricity was a common procedure between 1907 and 1930 in the USA. Then the AMA and big drug companies took over the medical scene. ECT has been an approved procedure in China since 1987 in all their hospitals. For more info on this subject go to www.dragonfly75.com/eng/DCrecap.html

Hi Nancy from New York. Thanks for the miscellaneous remedies for breast cancer. I have heard of severl of these remedies, and I'm glad to hear that you feel and look great. I am 49 and was diagnosed with breast cancer 6 years ago. I was curious about your thoughts on coffee drinking. What do you think about coffee from a health standpoint?
(Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia)
Raw garlic. Came across this pubmed article
It concerns me that posters on the breast cancer page have serious conditions and are experimenting with all manner of 'natural' cures, some dangerous and some ridiculous. TALK to your doctor please. If you have done any research through pubMed discuss it with your physician first. Quite frankly this thread should contain a serious health warning.
M: It would be nice if you posted an item in particular when describing "dangerous", instead you throw a blanket of generalizations. We all need more information and less fear.
There is a reason people come here for help. Cancer cure rates by conventional medicine are dismal and the cost are astronomical. Check out Ty Bollinger videos on YouTube. At only mid-age, Ty lost most of his family from Cancer, whereupon he determined to find out more of this tragedy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?
To Melony UK.
in response to your recent post here on EC, I would advise you that this is what this wonderful site is about, CHOICE, Many people here have been through the convential medical fields and have not found satisfaction and wish to do something for themselves, whether good or bad and this site helps and is read by many many people who have had excellent results by trying their own natural treatments, maybe because you use the NHS you are conditioned not to think for yourself, so please don't knock anyone who uses alternative treatments.
I meant IP6, Inositol Hexaphosphate
Unfortunately a good majority of doctors still believe in chemo and other life threatening treatments. Maybe they should start teaching about diet and other natural cures to help the body and hospitals should stop passing out cookies and treats to patients getting treatments!
Dear Nancy from Melville New York... Thank you so much for your comment & the stats on DCIS... I didn't know... I've been refusing surgery & have totally changed my lifestyle too but I didn't have the facts to answer people... If you have a blog or website or other place where you share about your strength & methods I'd love to hear more...
A comment on garlic and turmeric:
This is not commonly known in the west, but here, in the middle east, we have the MALE garlic (that comes mostly from Yemen), is quite small and has only 1 bud, in comparison to the normal looking garlic (which has many buds together and is the female common variety). The medicinal properties of the male garlic is said to be approximately 1000 times more potent than the female common variety. In addition, contrast to the male garlic, the FEMALE Turmeric root (has a much stronger smell and colour, and is also smaller looking than the male), is also believed to be the 'medicinal' and more potent variety of turmeric. Good luck!
Molasses, Aloe Vera and Beets for Cysts
Molasses in spanish is MELASA. For years I have heard my dominican family member say that a mixture of molasses, aloe vera and BEETS will remove any cysts from women breast and ovaries. I just found out i have two cysts. According to my dominican aunts i must take the this mixture for 40 days. I will post my results. I have true faith in natural resources.

Hi! I've been browsing through the site, reading about 'borax', and it sounds wonderful. I was diagnosed with Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) which is 'preemptive Breast Cancer' over a year ago. I chose not to go the slash/poison/burn route. I am trying to help my body, hep itself. I don't always succeed with the improved diet, but I have supplements, and I take ACV (with the mother) three times a day. I also drink a glass of water with BAKING SODA, last thing before bed, and I rub a pinch on my gums x 3 times daily. I have a FARinfrared sauna, almost daily. I also only use himalayan salt, and I juice daily. My general health is greatly improved, so if I die of Cancer, I'll die healthy, apart from the arthritis in my knee that I've had for the last 3 weeks.
My question is, should I also be taking Borax? I would really appreciate some feedback.
Hi eclipse, I don't know the answer to your question, but if you don't mind I have some suggestions. I found breastcancerchoices.org very helpful and you can buy the iodine from them. They will post to australia, you just have to email them. I had no trouble getting my high dose iodoral. I was following "the iodine protocal". I was initially scared of a herx reaction being ill for so long so I started by painting lugals on the skin and then 1 drop in water slowly upping it. Never forget the co nutrients.
Don't forget your lymph system as it is what will take the rubbish out. One great herb is fenugreek. You have the lovely Strand to walk along (yes a little envious). Walking and rebounding good for the lymph also being in sea water. The water acts as compression and the nutrients in the water help. Try to get the water above the armpits. Sorry there are no links but my pendo is not pasting for some reason. All the best in your journey, God bless
Forgot to say I take borax usually Ted's way with 4 or 5 on and 3 or 2 off. although have done it Joel Wallach's way also. For so long we have been taught that it is ,but in the minute doses it is necessary for our health. This is not an answer but what I personally do.
(Townsville, Queensland, Australia)
Hi Maria, thanks for the useful advise. I will look up the site you recommended. Sadly, I live a little out of town, so don't make it to the strand, but I do live at a beach, so I will certainly try the saltwater experience. I have been walking the dogs on the beach, killing two birds with one stone, exercise the dogs, get Vitamin D, breathe fresh air, and ground myself. Have you heard of 'grounding'? It may or may not be beneficial, but it's free, and who knows, it may help. I'm so glad that this site is here, I learn something every time I open it.
Hi Eclipse, I agree this site is a learning feast. yes I believe in grounding. It has helped me, even as a kid I always wanted to be in bare feet. There is an earthing group in Adelaide who at one of their festivals did a test on 6 people. They did a live blood analysis then they did grounding for 2hrs (think it was that ) and redid the live blood analysis and it showed the cells weren't sticky any more. Unfortunately I can't remember all the details. Grounding is said to be one of the best antioxidants so as you said "its free".
If you can filter your shower/bath water that is mighty helpful as we absorb so much chlorine & fluoride thru our skin, we tend to only think about filtering our drinking water. I'm someone who prefers the pitchfork approach, as in doing more than 1 therapy provided they are not canceling one another out. There are also some very easy & cheap ones in the "Dirt Cheap Cancer Protocol"
Ted's recommendations regarding keeping your sugar levels down are really important I believe whilst you are doing your therapies. This includes fruit & its coming into mango season for you! (Oh I love mangos).
As an aside did you know that we don't make vit d in the morning and late afternoon sun? This came as a shock to me as for years being diligent to get sunshine at these times so as to avoid skin cancer. It is the midday sun we need, not a lot of it though. With all our careful sun exposure my hubby got skin cancers & low vit d, & my vit d level was so low it could not make double figures!! Keep up the good fight.
tumour coming out of breast
hi, i am looking for a way to deal with the tumor that seems to be pushing out of my skin-skin wound is getting bigger -i need to be prepared-thing of using tumorx paste-first tumor removed in october 2009, drs. said perimeters were clear-but its there again -wound is at the site of second biopsy(after surgery) i got to burn this thing off me fast-i am on raw food diet-essiac formula,wormwood combo + clove, powdered wheatgrass,nuts all organic-h202 and baking soda-not fruit or breads- somebody help please-
I don't know where to draw the line between medical advice and just advice, but there is a lot of studies and details on the net about using IODINE for tumors, and specifically breast tumors.
There are astounding per cent increases of everything from cancers to chronic fatigue to thyroid to sick building syndrome the past 25 years or so, and many say it's the abysmally low iodine intake in the world, except for Japan!
Key names to search would be Dr. Abraham, Dr. Brownstein, and Dr. Derry (Victoria, BC).
I understand that in the USA now since 2007, thanks to the DEA, no amount of LUGOL's iodine in its nearly 2-century old strength of 5/10% is available for personal purchase in a size over 1 30-ml bottle.
There's also SSKI, which as the name implies, is only the KI= Potassium iodide (reduced) form of iodine (no plain iodine). The SS= Super Saturated.
Some plain drug stores likely sell the small bottles of weaker mixed 'tincture' of iodine/iodide; some in water, some in ETHYL alcohol, and some in ISOPROPYL alcohol(this last one NOT to be taken internally ever, and not even reco for skin application.)
Hope this is helpful to you.
(Little Rock, Ca)
I also had this experience with the tumor breaking through the skin and making a horrible wound for which I had to wear socks beneath my bra to absorb any weeping of the wound or blood which would spurt out if the wound were bumped (it was between the sternum and upper breast, almost exact location of L. Day's). This was a very large hard tumor, size of tennis ball. I had been putting tea tree oil on the site and decided this was not a good idea as it was getting worse so found a product and immediately begin using it 2-3 x daily and it completely healed the open wound within a week or two. The name of it is Argentyn, and is recommended for any type of wound, burn, blister abrasion, rash, ulceration, etc. Two ingredients are silver hydrosol and aloe. This has nothing to do with shrinking the tumor but is good for any open wound.
Organic Juicing Diet
Better But With Side Effects
My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer about 2 years ago and as soon as she was notified she went on an organic raw food juicing diet. She only drank organic juices and ate fruit and vegetables for the past 2 years. She drank apple/carrot juice and a green leaf veggie juice mixed with red cabbage and red apple. She alternated the apple/carrot juice with the green juice throughout the day, drinking about 8-10 juices daily with 3 meals in between. She also drank organic orange juice freshly squeezed every morning. She got the diet from Dr. Lorain Day. Dr. Day cured herself of breast cancer using this diet.
Everything has been going well so far, but in the past 6 months, my mom's gums have receded drastically. She has been to the dentist but he told her she does not have periodontal disease. She is afraid that if they get any lower then her teeth might start to fall out. Do you have any idea if she is missing any vitamins? Maybe she needs some oils, or B vitamins that she does not get from her diet. Please let me know if you can help.
She does not eat any sugar, animal products, or take any vitamins/minerals/oils. This is what Dr. Day did for when she beat breast cancer.
(St. Petersburg, Florida, U.s.a.)
There's a possibility that she's low on minerals and omega oils. You don't mention how much protein she is getting. Check oil pulling cures here in Earth Clinic, I just read about gum and teeth great results. Good luck.
EC: Our Oil Pulling page is here: https://www.earthclinic.com/remedies/oil_pulling.html
My suggestion after reading books on dietary, i'd switch to vegan. MEAT & DAIRY cause issues that people arent even aware of unless they read books and about it. Read "The China Study". Studies after studies of evidence shows vegan diet can reverse/cure diabetes, heart disease, cancers, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, arthritis, alzheimer. Your body is getting a lot of toxins from eating the commom Western diet. Casein is a cancer causing agent in dairy products; esp milk. Wheat grass is good for curing cancers and tumors and such. I drink 1 oz a day. I also drink a homemade probiotic daily. If you change your eating habits to vegan and drink 1 0z or 2 of wheatgrass I think you can start to heal your health from the inside out including the breast cancer. But seek professional help as well. I think if you change your eating habits to healthy, your body will begin to heal itself. The book can be found on Amazon for like $10. Please read it, it may change your life forever and your health. Also drink at least 32 oz of water daily to cleanse your system from toxins. I have other suggestions for reading on this topic is anyone is interested I will give you the name sof the books I have read. It is true, YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT!!

You know, Funlovingal, for every suggestion there is a counter-suggestion and that makes knowing what to eat and how to live nowadays very difficult! You advise the China Study, although I haven't read it I have read a lot of reviews and to be honest.... I must prefer books like Trick and Treat by Barry Groves! He advises the contrary and he explains why. Probably both books sound right.... Very hear to know what to do! Anyway, people have to see on which diet they feel better, I don't think that anyone can tell you what to do! And it is not only Trick and Treat that demystify the old beliefs that being a vegan or a vegetarian will change your health for the better.... Lots of literature out there!
Orange juice everyday (sugar), carrot juice (sugar), juice 8 times daily I think is too much, don't you?
Oxygen Therapy - Warning!
I've been a fan of Earth Clinics remedies for a long time. Had success with oil pulling, leaching out fluoride, ACV with baking soda, but one remedy I have to warn against is the oxygen therapy for cancer. I have breast cancer and tried the HBOT (oxygen tank). It was $6,000 for 40 sessions. At the end of these sessions my tumor grew from a large grape size to a large grapefruit size. In addition I tried soaking in Hydrogen Peroxide and taking Bill's spray. This irritated the tumor and sprouted another tumor in my lymph node area under my arm. Later from a doctor I found out that that a lot of cancer patients using external remedied applied cause the tumors to grow out of the skin and cause other more serious problems. So I just want to warn those of you with cancer to be weary.

I agree with the Carol. I was dealing with a recurrence of breast cancer. I decided to do the natural route, after having chemo. I head about heating the body to kill cancer cells and decided to seek a naturapath. He proceeded with heating with ozone in the tank, after four treatments I noticed my lymph node under my arm becoming much bigger. I told the doctor and he said it's the white blood cells doing its job. However, they kept getting bigger. I have since stopped, unfortunately the lymph nodes have all gotten bigger, the cancer has spread and all the lymph nodes in my neck on the left side is infected. I am now back in treatment, which I had seen this site (EC) sooner. Will use some of the remedies to counteract the effects of treatment. Thanks all for the great info and remedies.
Thank you for posting, I have been told I have breast cancer recently and have been doing Paw Paw program. The company I have been using has been having great success over the yrs with cancer.. Paw paw is not available in Canada so I order it from the US. I intend to continue this and also add some of the recommendations from this site. I have what appears to be inflammation around my nipple. Is this a common symptom?
Hello, I was diagnosed with breast cancer 2 years ago... No chemo or radiation for me however... Tumor has now grown and has pushed outside the breast resulting in a malodorous cauliflower growth. Was wondering if anyone had ever tried a poultice made of ground flax seeds, water and activated charcoal? I have heard that this may help with the odor. Has anyone ever tried it? Thanks for your replies!

Hi: I just wanted to offer my idea. I saw a video on the Hoksley(sp?) cure and Black Salve rings a bell. It was for treating the ones that had ulcerated. Also baking soda in maple syrup drink. I found a link reagarding a cure from an Italian Oncologist named Dr. Tulio Simoncini. he is having success with this.
hope this is of assistance, Mary
(Campbell River, Bc)
How did the poultice work??? I sure hope I can hook up with you I really need to chat with someone that is going through the same thing , How are the Drs. treating you?? I live on the island and would love to chat. My Dr. are closing the door if I do not go to the Cancer Clinic. I too have breast cancer. I did the lumpectomy, it was a large mass, now I have another lump in the armpit area, ultra sound sound like it's back. I did not do chemo or radiation- been using natural remedies as well / scared stiff/ how is your breast cancer?? You said it was a large mass- so was mine... Sorry I did have it removed I think it just traveled elsewhere.. What else are you doing to help yourself? I need some wisdom.. And strength. thanks, Kat

From WH Foods online:
"Sea vegetables may play a role in lowering risk of estrogen-related cancers, including breast cancer. Since cholesterol is required as a building block for production of estrogen, the cholesterol-lowering effects of sea vegetables may play a risk-reducing role in this regard. However, more interesting with respect to breast cancer risk is the apparent ability of sea vegetables to modify aspects of a woman's normal menstrual cycle in such a way that over a lifetime, the total cumulative estrogen secretion that occurs during the follicular phase of the cycle gets decreased. For women who are at risk of estrogen-sensitive breast cancers, sea vegetables may bring a special benefit in this regard."
Sea greens contain high levels of salvestrols which are natural anticancer agents. Salvestrols have been used to successfully treat breast cancer even if its ER ve or ER -ve.
The ancient Egyptians knew about the powerful anticancer effects of seaweed and the oldest recorded cancer remedy is recorded on a papyrus manuscript.
Ted, I am new to the site and feel so hopeful. Your advice seems sound and I am grateful. A year ago I was diagnosed with aggressive, estrogen positive breast cancer that had spread to lymph. I would appreciate your suggestions as to what I should be taking. I have bought lysine (from reading this web site). It is in capsule form (500 mg). I am also taking hydrogen peroxide (35%) 3 drops in 8 oz water. I just started these and don't know if they should be taken away from food, together, etc. BHT is on order.
I would appreciate if you would list out a program that would help me heal of what to take when. I feel I am making some progress but also think it is spreading ( I realize that sounds contrary). Thank you for your time and caring.
Hi Sue, it would be helpful to know what treatment you have had so far- conventional eg radiation- etc ovaries removed? What's your diet like? The Plant Programme by Jane Plant comes highly recommended as do many others. What's your blood work like? White cell count? Lysine is recommended as it increases the immune system and White blood count so it is said to stop cancer spreading. Iodine is often recommended to kill the breast cancer but there are lots of others. Kind Regards.

A young girl is born. She is a difficult child. Fussy eater, poor sleep pattern, lots of colds. She loves chicken and craves chocolate. She has trouble with her periods from almost the onset of menstruation. They are irregular and painful and she suffers PMT. Her doctor puts her on the oral contraceptive to suppress ovulation and this seems to quieten things down. Eventually she comes off the pill to start a family. Her periods take 6 months to resume and they are worse than ever. She has trouble conceiving because the pill has depleted her zinc levels. She is low in progesterone and loses a few pregnancies at multiples of 4 weeks (4,8,12,16). She eventually gets pregnant but her copper accumulates and she develops postnatal depression. Her baby is zinc deficient and probably has excess copper. She tries for another baby but this time she can't because she's developed endometriosis. Answer: the oral contraceptive. She starts to gain weight, starts to get depressed, then her skin changes. Her face develops a reddish tinge. Then she develops anxiety symptoms. She is told this is anxiety/panic disorder causing her depression and is put onto antidepressants, but these don't help her tiredness. Then she finds out that she's iron deficient, but she can't raise her iron levels with supplements. Then she's told she's got an under active thyroid and needs thyroid replacement. Still no real improvement in energy. After a few years of this purgatory of health, she goes off the pill and develops heavy periods. She finds out that now she also has fibroids and consents to hysterectomy. Then she discovers that her Estrogen levels are low. Then the punch line. "You don't have uterus, therefore you don't need progesterone". She starts Estrogen only HRT. Despite complaining of breast tenderness, she is told to continue. One day one of the painful lumps in her breast is brought to her doctor's attention. She has a mammogram, then a biopsy. The pathology shows breast cancer. She has a lumpectomy with axillary node clearance. Her tumour is Estrogen receptor positive. So then it starts. Chemo then tamoxifen. Five years later she gets a terrible pain in the back. She has spinal metastases. More chemo. Then liver secondaries. Sorry, not much more medicine can do, we've really done our best. We've followed the book; every single health recommendation. Oh, and by the way, don't go near those natural therapists. They have no idea of how to help you. End of story. This case represents the full house of Xenoestrogens symptoms, and unfortunately many of the patients with breast cancer have some version of this story.
Do you think that the medical professional would accept any blame for these events?
What a sad story. Sad but true. And likely played out many times over.
Thanks for sharing a sobering story.
~Mama to Many~
This is an obvious example of a win/loose game. I like the scenario where there are no losers. Referencing to war, Bruce Springsteen said "Nobody wins unless everybody wins".
A few yrs ago, I gathered statistics from obituaries from regional newspaper and came up with a mean average death of 75 (to the best of my recollection as I have those stats written down but cannot now find them but am presently searching). From my local paper last two editions here are the numbers: 11 deaths 51 being the lowest and 95 the highest # and a mean average 67.5. My recent interest in recording these stats was stimulated by one edition obit of 6 deaths with 4 reported in the 50's category.
The information is from the book "Nutritional Medicine: Fact & Fiction" by Dr Igor Tabrizian (Australia).
Chapter 8 Strangers in the night: Xenoestrogens and health.
Dr Tabrizian's web site is: www.nutritionreviewservice.com.au
I nearly cringed reading your well written message. I started this journey long ago myself. Irregular periods, put on the pill, still irregular bleeding, then a hysterectomy leading to severe menopausal symptoms. Then I met a doctor, who specializes in women's health who told me about Xeno hormones. My whole life changed after following his advice, which was get rid of all products containing fake hormones! No more symptoms, no more discomfort. My own gynecologist had never even heard of a Xeno hormones. Every doctor should know. I bet I wouldn't have needed a hysterectomy if I had met Dr. Eckhart earlier.
