What can help father with large cancerous growth on kidney

Posted By John1974 (N. Ireland) on 04/05/2015

A few months ago my father found out he has a tennis ball sized growth on his left kidney and he was told it's cancer. Can anyone recommend a treatment for his condition?

I would like to add to this post a list of my fathers meds in case anyone would like to add any info to help.

atorvastatin 40mg one taken at night.

mirtazapine 45mg one taken daily.

digoxin 62.5 one every morning.

monomax 60mg one taken daily.

carbocisteine 375mg two taken 3 times a day.

doxazosin 1mg one every morning.

asprin 75mg one each morning ( to keep blood thin).

furosemide 40mg one every morning.

he is receiving nothing for the cancer only paracetamol for pain relief.

if anyone would like to give advice that would be great. love john

Dear John1974,

The first things I would consider would be Essiac Tea (made from the original four herbs- Burdock Root, Slippery Elm, Sheep Sorrel, and Turkey Rhubarb) and Fresh Carrot Juice (3-4 cups per day, but you would want to work up to that.)

Also, castor oil has helped some with tumors before. A castor oil pack 4 nights a week over the area of the kidney would be another thing I would want to do.

Hi mama. my father was prescribed co-codomol 8/500mg. I would rather him not take them. Anything else that would be better than this for the pain he is having? John

Dear John,

I am so sorry to hear that your father is having pain enough that prescriptions are prescribed.

A few things - dehydration makes pain worse. I also think acidic body conditions make pain feel worse. One time I had a pain in my neck that was resolved after I drank an alkalizing drink.

I can't recall if we have talked about Mullein before (it would have been in connection with your father's lung issues.) This week I have seen Mullein do some amazing things for cough and I have a new appreciation for it. This inspired me to go back to all of my herb books and reread what is said about Mullein. I read that it is considered have mild narcotic effects. So, Mullein tea or tincture may be of help.

I don't know what the law is where you are, but I have read about people using marijuana for cancer pain with good results.

So far, my natural pain relief options are not nearly as plentiful as I could wish. While I too do not like to use pain medication for myself and family, we do use it at times because pain relief is such a mercy for the suffering. Also, healing is more difficult when you are in pain.

Your are caring so diligently for your father!

Dear John---

Have you heard of ESSIAC tea "with all roots and four herbs"? The gov't does not allow the testimonies online anymore. They were very impressive, too threatening for the cancer industry which has only a 3% survival rate though masses run for it.

One aspect of this herb combination is that there will be no or minimal pain for cancer patients. The success rate is high. Mountain Herb or Essiac West are reliable. I would give it a try.

Namaste, Om

Hey friend, Is caisse tea the same? if it is what dosage would you recommend for him to use?

Yes, it is called ESSIAC tea by Renee Caisse. The instruction come in the package. Start with low dosage and work up prescribed dosage. All the best.

Namaste, Om
