My Husband Has Lung And Brain Cancer – What To Do?

Written by Wellness Club on November 12, 2008 – 4:20 pm -

It seems that this has been "cancer question month" here at The Wellness Club, and folks love to write us with very specific medical questions even though we have said many times, here and on our website, that it is not appropriate, ethical, or legal for us to provide medical advice to someone who is not an established patient of Dr. Myatt.

Folks, let me repeat: We cannot provide detailed medical advice or recommendations to anyone who is not a patient. We will do our best to provide general, generic information, but without having all available information about someone it is not fair to the person for us (or anyone else for that matter!) to make specific medical recommendations and it is not fair for someone to expect us to give out medical advice – this request puts us in a very difficult position, as we certainly recognize the desperate nature of many of these requests – letters like this one recently received are heart-wrenching!

Sue Writes: (these notes are reproduced as they were received…)

MY HUSBAND HAS LUNG CANCER,ALSO BRAIN.I AM LOOKING FOR SOMETHING TO HELP.IS FLAXSEED SAFE TO USE WHEN TAKING RADIATION FOR BRAIN AND ALSO CHEMO EVERY 3 WEEKS.I NEED HELP AND ANYTHING YOU CAN TELL ME WILL BE SO VERY MUCH APPRECIATED.ALSO,DO YOU KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT ZEOLITE TO HELP CANCER.THANK YOU SO MUCH.SUE

Our answer:

Hi Sue,

This is very serious business – and I wish that there were one simple thing (like Zeolite) that I could recommend for you that would be effective. As you have seen on our website at Dr. Myatt’s consultation pages, we are often the "Doctor of Last Resort" for folks who have been given up on or written off by conventional medicine – we make a lot of saves, but we need a lot of information to do that – information that is only available to us when your husband is a patient of Dr. Myatt so that she has access to all of his medical records. Why not consider booking a consultation?

There should be no contraindication to using flax – but again, without FULL knowledge of your husband’s situation we cannot even say that for certain. In terms of nutrition, generally, a very low carbohydrate diet – The Myatt Diet – is best in most cancers, especially fast growing or aggressive cancers. There are other nutritional supplements that may be of value, but again, we need far more information to give fair, proper, and appropriate advice.

Cheers,
Nurse Mark

Sue wrote again:

THANK ;YOU VERY MUCH. WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED.MY HUSBAND IS NOT ABLE TO TRAVEL AND GETTING WEAKER EACH DAY.HE GOES IN FOR CHEMO TOMORROW. RADIATION ON BRAIN NEXT MONDAY. I READ THAT BLACK CHERRY JUICE CAN BE BENIFICAL,I BOUGHT THAT ALONG WITH VITAMIN D AND CO10.I HAVE TO HELP BUT WITH NOTHING THAT WILL HARM HIM. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ANY AND ALL HELP.I HAVE READ OF THE FLAX AND COTTAGE CHEESE BUT LEERY OF THE RADIATION AND CHEMO.AGAIN THANKS SO MUCH.SUE 

And this was our reply:

Hi Sue,

Dr. Myatt is located in Arizona, but she helps patients all across the country and around the world as well – she does her consultations by telephone.

Please see her consultation brochure here: http://www.drmyattswellnessclub.com/consultations.htm and here: http://www.drmyattswellnessclub.com/consultbrochure.htm

Cherry pits contain the substance Laetril which may, in some cases, be useful in the treatment of cancer. Unfortunately, many fruit juices also contain large amounts of sugar which is contraindicated in cancer as sugar is the primary fuel for cancer cells.

Vitamin D may or may not be helpful – it is contraindicated in some cancers. CoQ10 is a very valuable antioxidant – but antioxidant levels must be carefully managed, as some oxidative stress (free radicals) may be desirable in order to stress / damage the cancer cells.

As you can see, this is a complicated situation and considerable skill is needed to make proper recommendations.

If you search the internet you will find hundreds of websites, each purporting to offer the one true cure for cancer – and you will make yourself crazy. As you have undoubtedly discovered, everyone you talk to – your neighbor, the butcher, your hairdresser, your accountant, your plumber, the lady down the street who sells MLM vitamins – all have advice for you – and none of them are really qualified to be giving advice the way someone like Dr. Myatt is.

Additionally, Dr. Myatt is very skilled at working in concert with your conventional doctor’s treatments to help you get the very best benefit with the least unpleasant side effects – and can help you cut through the confusion and uncertainty that often surrounds a serious condition like this.

Hope this helps,
Cheers,
Nurse Mark

Folks, I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Cancer treatment is NOT a Do-It-Yourself proposition! Please, Please, Please – work with a qualified, experienced physician who can guide you and assist you in treating this potentially life threatening disease. Don’t try to "go-it-alone" no matter what you read on the internet or hear from your well-meaning neighbor / friend / relative / other person. The stakes are too high!
