Have you ever heard of radiation insomnia? * *I hadn't until my brother came home from Mayo Clinic with a trachea tube & Dobhoff tube for feeding after starting radiation which they said his cancer was sensitive to, worked to shrink it for the first few treatments - then started growing again. They then operated for this inoperable cancer in his head, mouth and throat (I am told that 10 doctors studied his chart, looked at him and all but the l0th one said they wouldn't touch him with a l0 foot pole). The 10th one said "I think I can get it". This was l982. He is still with us today. He told me that his worse problem after starting the radiation was he could not sleep, until one morning the phone rang about 1.am. He picked up the phone, plugged his trach, and in his raspy voice managed a "hello".

K-(our lst cousin -1removed who is both an RN and a psychic) said: "I know you can't talk but just listen. I just got through talking to Uncle E-, Aunt G, - and E-- (all deceased or I prefer "gone home" years 46, and 61) and Uncle E said if you would take salt baths you can sleep. I don't remember how many nights he was to repeat this, but it was multiples of 3 (6 or 9). He took his first bath that morning, using 1 cup of talble salt to the tub of hot water, splashing it up around his neck, being careful not to get it in his trachea tube and slept like a baby for the rest of the night and a good part of the morning. He continued to take them for the recommended nights. A few weeks later she called back with a message from our father again, telling him that he said to repeat the salt baths again (multiples of 3 again) and he could go back to work. He did the baths, did go back to work and didn't retire until a couple of years ago in his upper 70's. The doctors following him tells him that he is the only one on earth that they know of that has made it 5 years with his type of cancer. The doctor who operated on him told him he was his only success and he was reluctant to release the flap in his chest, planned for reconstruction of his neck, but he would if he insisted. ' I asked my brother if he told him that he was on megadose vitamins and minerals and he said he hadn't. I put him on 8grams Vit. C, l200 units Vit E, Vit B complex 400 mgm, Vit. B 12, magnesium 800 mg., Niacin 400 mgm. after finding him wrapped in a quilt & complaining of freezing on a lovely, warm May day. When I pulled the quilt back and looked at his arms they were purple splotched with poor circulation. A few weeks later he developed what I call "CNS twitching", when i asked how long he had been doing this, his wife motioned for me to follow her and said the doctors told her that indicated metastis to the brain and that he didn't have the chance of a snowball in hell of making it. My reply started with Bull, and followed I'll be back in a few. Went to the nearest pharmacy and requested the strongest Folic acid tablets he could sell me without a prescription. We added about l200 mcg. to the rest of the vitamins getting thrown into the blender with his formula and divided up into equal doses with his feedings during the day. A couple of days later his CNS twitches were gone.

Maybe our wise chemist, Ted can explain the rationale of why salt baths counteract radiation insomnia. I have yet to find any reference to radiation insomnia, much less why salt baths would counteract it in any medical literature. I must tell you that he also had a lot of people praying for him throughout also. Interestingly, you are now finding medical literature about how prayer, imaging, and belief in a supreme being (whether you call that supreme being God, Yahweh. Zen, Buddha, Allah, or "All That Is"). My preference is "Unconditional Love". I stopped believing in the catty, spiteful, revengeful God that organized religion teaches a long time ago...
