Cancer Overview

Cancer is a group of diseases involving abnormal cell growth with the potential to invade or spread to other parts of the body.[2][8] These contrast with benign tumors, which do not spread to other parts of the body.[8] Possible signs and symptoms include a lump, abnormal bleeding, prolonged cough, unexplained weight loss, and a change in bowel movements.[1] While these symptoms may indicate cancer, they may have other causes.[1] Over 100 types of cancers affect humans.[8] Tobacco use is the ...

I have been fighting cancer for 5 years and still going. I have tried so many things like this that are empty promises. All they do is put down chemo, which has been the ONLY thing keeping me alive so far. I did this fatal Mexico heat treatments with they charged me $40,000 for two weeks of treatments and they almost killed me because they did NOTHING to help me. I know everyone has a special ingratiate to kill the cancer they have, but I have yet to find mine, but I do know there are people who take advantage of us, because we will do almost anything to stay alive. ## Hello, JOJO! How are you doing? I am very sorry about your continued health struggle and I really hope you beat cancer very soon! And your warning to others is greatly appreciated. There have been many that have asked abo...

Reclast fever chills
3 Replies RSS
My mother (age 69) received a Reclast infusion 36 hours ago. She currently has a fever of 101.8 and has the chills and has felt shaky. She has called her primary care doctor and the doctor who prescribed Reclast but since it's after hours she can only talk to their help lines. They said to head to the ER only if her fever reaches 103 degrees. They said she can take Advil or Tylenol for the fever. I read on the FDA site that Reclast can affect the kidneys so I'm suggesting Tylenol for her (since that's processed in the liver not the kidneys). I also read she should drink a lot of water. Can anyone speak to a similar experience? Is there anything else we should be doing? ## How is your mother doing, now? As reported by the FDA, those can be normal side effects of Reclast. She ...

My father is diagnosed with spinal comoression fracture, the mass possibly metastasized from prostate cancer. His doctor prescribed mosegor for something like sleeping or pain relief. Because he is suffering from pain and sleeplessness he is constantly requesting to take a capsule even after he had taken them. We refuse to give him outside the doctor's dosage of one capsule a day. Can we allow him to take say 2 to 3 capsules a day? Please reply...

h 86 cancer cure
117 Replies RSS
I received the same. It was from HSI (Health Sciences Institute) in an ad for a "free" book titled Miracles From the Vault: Anthology of Underground Cures by Jenny Thompson. It was "free" with a newsletter subscription... The "infomercial" was vague about most of the "top seven" cures it supposedly detailed. H-86 was the first of them. It supposedly reduces (attacks) cancers but I cannot find any reference to it on the web other than questions. I've found many people on the web asking about this and the others (nitric oxide, policosanol, lion's mane mushroom) which are well known but no answers about the H-86. The closest thing I could find was a rabbit derived LHPP antibody but I think this is NOT the substance in question. ## i need daily health...

Where To Purchase Paregoric
339 Replies RSS
I've used Paregoric for 15 years and can't find it. Is there anywhere in the U.S. or other countries where this can be purchased? ## I have been on paregoric therapy for at least 18 years myself. (not to mention Sandostatin, Lomotil & Pamine) Have had occasions the past few years when it was not available, and now I am told the manufacturer has discontinued it. (royal pain) so Dr has now RXd tincture of opium - much less to take, but the stuff tastes like cat s**t (not that I ever tasted cat s**t) - I was hoping to find paregoric again, maybe from Canada - I'm still looking - let me know if ya wanna chat more & / or if you find a source. Would be nice to get out of the house again! Thanks bud - Jim ## Thanks for your reply. I called Canada, and they don't have it...

efudex40 application instructions
3 Replies RSS
how and when should I apply efudex to my face? ## This is a drug used to treat certain types of cancer. How often and how much to apply, depends on exactly where on your face (lips, nose, chin, etc) and what stage your lesions are in. Only you and your doctor can determine this. ## I am totally horrified to read efudix is being applied to the lips! It turned my forehead green and crusty and none of us should use this without first checking if we are allergic to its contents. I was told to put it all over my forehead for pre-cancerous skin and the reaction was truly horrific. I went to pharmacist about it and he said to stop it immediately. I dont think medics realize how we suffer and that this chemotherapy cream can do more harm than good. I used it about 8 years ago and today still ha...
