miraculously to the surprise of his nephrologists, never receiving a transplant nor dialysis. Beginning with his natural healthcare practitioner at the time, transitioning to me, and all the while continuing with regular visits to his nephrologist, he has been able to go from only 11% kidney function to around 45% today. But all the while, he has been weak and low in energy, needing regular erythropoeitin and Arenesp shots. We have thought this was due to his compromised kidney function, but now we know that it is myelodysplasia (5Q- MDS), a form of red blood cell cancer, has likely been developing for years now.
So, while I have been trained in Preventing & Fighting Cancer Holistically, I have never dealt with it face-to-face. This trial will be a real test of my faith, knowledge, and abilities as a practitioner. We are opting for an integrative or complementary approach with Revlimid (a "chemo" pill-- but not really-- it does not suppress the immune system like regular chemo, but rather it stimulates your natural killer cells, increases apopstosis, and prevents the formation of new abnormal cells) combined with a multi-pronged alternative approach involving diet, pH balancing, detox, lifestyle changes, and nutritional supplements that:
- stimulate stem cell & red blood cell production
- stimulate the immune system
- increase apoptosis
- differentiate cancer cells from healthy cells
The "chemo" pill will not cure his disease, but it will buy us time while we search for a solution and get to work.
