Lung-Bone-Brain Cancer: Pain Gone After 4 days of e-Therapy

Patient, 66-year-old, was diagnosed with lung cancer that had spread to her bones and brain. She had undergone radiotherapy, took Iressa and later switched to Tarceva but the treatments failed her. After 9 months of medical treatment she decided to try out our CA Care Therapy.

Patient led a miserable life. She was constantly in pain and had difficulty sleeping. Patient, her husband and daughter came to CA Care Penang on 8 June 2014. She was started on the e-Therapy. After 4 days, her pains were gone!

Pain Gone After e-Therapy

Jane (not real name) was a 47-year old lady from South Africa. She lived with her husband and their dog in a boat that sailed around the world. The happy family had been sailing like this for the past 15 years. Sometime in mid-2013, they landed in Malaysia. Jane developed breathing difficulty and was subsequently diagnosed with lung cancer. CT scan showed a 3.2 x 4.1 x 6.7 cm mass in her lung.

Jane was asked to go for chemotherapy but she refused. She was in severe pain when she came to seek our help. One way to help Jane with her recurrent persisted pains was to put her on the e-Therapy.

Listen to what happened to her.

 

 

Day 1: After detox 1 and detox 2: She went through “hell”. She felt very tired and the pains were more severe.

Day 2: She had nausea, was very tired and the severe pains persisted! She became very irritable, did not feel like eating and it was pain, pain, pain – all the time.

Day 3: In the morning, things seemed to improve a little bit. She became less irritable and less nauseous. However, the pain remained the same.

In the evening, Jane had more of the e-Therapy (almost 2 hours). She had hot flushes, she had a lot of sweat and felt something “moving” inside. The pains did not improve.

Day 4: She awoke at 3 a.m. and felt real good! I jumped out the bed. No pain. I felt absolutely healthy. Jane had more of the e-Therapy in the morning. She walked some distance to an organic shop for lunch. Her pains started to come back.

Day 5: I felt good, rested and it was fantastic.            

Day 6: Jane was better off today than she was on Day 1.

Comment

boat

We were glad to be able to help Jane with her pains. The next day, she sailed away with her boat (picture) and we never get to see Jane again. Later we received an e-mail from her husband saying that Jane had passed away on 1 January 2014. The cancer had spread to her brain. It was indeed unfortunate that we were unable to help Jane using herbs because her “Caucasian” stomach would not tolerate them.

 

Pain After She Ate Chocolate

Jane (not real name) was a 47-year old lady from South Africa. She lived with her husband and their dog in a boat that sailed around the world. The happy family had been sailing like this for the past 15 years. Sometime in mid-2013, they landed in Malaysia. Jane developed breathing difficulty and was subsequently diagnosed with lung cancer. CT scan showed a 3.2 x 4.1 x 6.7 cm mass in her lung.

Jane was asked to go for chemotherapy but she refused. She was in severe pain when she came to seek our help. We prescribed her the lung herbs.

1. After 5 days on the herbs, the pains were gone.

2. On day 5, 6 and  7, she felt great.

3. On day 8, the pain came back! Why?

Listen to what happened to her.

 

 

 

Comments

Very often patients are being told that they can eat anything they like – food has nothing to do with their cancer! Unfortunately, with time such advice has now been showed to be misleading and a bad joke! Over the years, I have seen cases after cases of “disaster” after patients started to take “bad” food.

In this story, Jane learned that sugar is bad for her!

Menstrual Pain and Bleeding Resolved After Herbs

MM is a 45-year-old housewife. She came to seek our help on 25 January 2013 regarding her recurrent menstrual pain and bleeding. In fact a week earlier she had been hospitalized for this problem.  Listen to her story.

  1. Since 14 years old, MM suffered menstrual pain with blood clot. In our Oriental culture, problem like this is not something that family members would talk about! Furthermore, pain during menses is considered part of being a woman! So the problem that MM had was just left as it was.
  2. In the early 1990s she was told that she had ovarian cyst. She did nothing about it.
  3. In July 1992, she underwent a laparoscopic surgery to remove two ovarian cysts, each 10 cm in size.
  4. In 2006, MM suffered heavy bleeding and underwent another surgery. This time a 7 cm fibroid was removed. According to the doctor, her ovaries were clean.
  5. During the period between 2006 and 2010, MM started on Ayurvedic treatment for her recurrent bleeding problem. At first she received treatment in Kuala Lumpur (costing RM 300 per day). Later she went to Kerala, India for the treatment. According to MM, the treatment in Kerala was cheaper – RM 3,000 for a six-week treatment (inclusive of flight cost).
  6. In 2010, the pains and bleeding became more severe and she went to a university hospital in KL and underwent uterine arterial embolization (UAE). The procedure failed. She suffered severe pain and has to be knocked off by morphine. According to MM, My advice to anyone, never go for AEU! MM had a very high tolerance for pain and had never cried but UAE made her cry in pain!
  7. MM tried acupuncture. This helped. Her problem came on and off. Her periods became regular.
  8. In early January 2013, MM suffered severe bleeding and she was hospitalized.

CT scan done on 18 January 2013 indicated a large uterus. There is a large posterior wall uterine myoma measuring 6.6 x 8.4 x 8.9 cm with central hypodensity likely to represent necrosis. It causes anterior displacement of endometrial and bladder depression.

Bilateral ovarian cysts. Right ovarian cyst measures 3.2 x 3.7 cm and left ovarian cyst measures 2.8 x 5.2 cm. There is an suggestion of left hydrosalphinx.

E-53--a

E-53--b

The doctor suggested that MM undergo a total hysterectomy. It was at this point that MM drove to Penang and sought our help. MM said she suffered pain before and during her periods and this was usually followed by severe bloating of the stomach. Having understood her problem, my reaction on that day was, We shall try our best. 

MM was prescribed PMS Pill, GY-5 and GY 6 teas. In addition, she was asked to take A-Lung-2 and A-Kid-6 tea to balance her meridian disharmony (See another story Nocturia – frequent night time urination resolved by herbal therapy). 

Problem Resolved After the Herbal Therapy 

Two months later, 24 March 2013, a happy MM came to our centre again. Her long standing problems had been resolved. Listen to what she said.

 Chris:  You took the herbs for two months. What happened?

MM:  No more pain and no more bloatedness. My periods were normal – 5 days. No blood clot.

C:  Before taking the herbs?

M:  A week before I came to see you, I had to be hospitalized due to severe bleeding and pain. That was why I did the CT scan.

C:  You mean when you went home and started to take the herbs, all your pain and bleeding were gone?

M: Yes.

C: I really don’t know what to say to you! You will have to continue taking the herbs for a while more.

Did the herbs really help you?

M: Yes.

C:  And you are happy now?

M:   Yes.

C:  Not too bad. You have improved!

Breast Cancer Went Wild After Surgery, Chemo-Radiotherapy. E-Therapy Helped Relieve Her Pains

Eva (not real name) was 33 years old when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She underwent surgery at a hospital in Hong Kong in June 2009.

After surgery, Eva received 6 cycles of chemotherapy – 3 cycles using FEC (5FU + epirubicin + cyclophosphamide) and 3 cycles of Taxol. This was done in Hong Kong. She received 30 radiation treatments in Macau. There was no further medication after this.

A follow-up mammogram in 2011 showed everything was clear.

In 2012 (i.e. some 3 years later) Eva started to have back pain. MRI in December 2012 showed some spots in her lumbar.

In January 2013, a PET / CT scan showed extensive bony metastasis. She was prescribed Tamoxifen and Xeloda and pain killers. After taking Xeloda she was not able to sit down or walk. She had to be hospitalized for a week and given painkiller injection. She was discharged and had to use the wheelchair.

At the end of February 2013, Eva decided to return to her home in Indonesia.

In late March 2013, she consulted an oncologist in Penang. She was told to undergo chemotherapy again using Carboplatin. She has to take an oral drug, Navelbine.  She has to undergo six cycles of this treatment and each cycle would cost RM 7,000. In addition she needs a monthly injection of bisphosphonate for her bone. This would cost an addition RM 1,700 per month.

Can the treatment cure her? The oncologist said: Not sure!

Eva refused further medical treatment. Eva and her mother (who also has cancer) came to seek our help on 21 March 2013. She presented severe pain and was unable to sleep at night. Her movements were very restricted.

Her CA 15.3 results over the years showed an increase from 12.7 to 246.1

PET / CT scan showed the cancer had spread to some 29 locations in her body as below

E-Therapy at CA Care

We really felt sorry for Eva seeing her in such severe pain. We decided that Eva should try the e-therapy right away and requested her to postpone her return home. She needed to stay in Penang for an additional 5 days. And here is her story.

In summary after 2 days on the e-therapy, Eva had less pain and was able to sit up and watch the television for 2 hours. This is something she could not do before. She had to lie down in bed most of the time. With the e-therapy she could sit, walk and move around without much difficulty.  We told Eva to come back to Penang for the e-therapy again if her problems recurred.

 

Nocturia – frequent night time urination resolved by herbal therapy

MM is a 45-year-old housewife. She came to us for problems of backache and severe pain during her periods (her story in another article). As with all patients we read her meridian energy using the AcuGraph (below).  Only 3 of the 12 meridians were normal (green), 5 meridians were split and 4 meridians were low.

Acu-1-21Jan13 copy

From our experience, those with low or split bladder meridian (BL is blue, arrow) may have problems of frequent urination at night.  (See our previous article: http://ejtcm.com/2011/03/25/low-or-split-bladder-meridian-may-result-in-frequent-urination/). In addition, she also had low KI (kidney) and SP (Spleen) meridian energy.  The significance of this is explained below.

We asked MM if nocturia was also her problem. Her answer was YES – urination 3 to 4 times each night. It is indeed a nuisance having to waking up so often, besides depriving her of a good sound sleep. We suggested that MM take the herbal tea, A-Kid-6, for 2 weeks to try and resolve her problem.

We got to met MM again 2 months later and she told us her nocturia was resolved after taking the herbal tea. Listen to what she said below:

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM ) View of Bladder Function

TCM views the kidney and bladder as an interrelated pair that controls water in the body.  The function of the bladder – i.e. storage and discharge of the urine, depends upon Kidney Qi. If Kidney Qi is sufficient the bladder will function normally and urination is well controlled.

If Kidney Qi is deficient the bladder becomes dysfunctional. Disharmony of the Bladder meridian can lead to problems such as difficult urination, incontinence (inability to control proper urination), painful eyes, runny nose, nose bleeding, nasal congestion, pain in the head, neck, back, groin and buttock.

According to Steven Clavey (in Fluid physiology and pathology in TCM) nocturia is due to exhausted kidney yang or spleen and kidney yang deficiency. However, in cases where the symptoms are less severe, nocturia can be due to Bladder qi deficiency.

e-Therapy In, Pain Killer Out

Dr. Z has been using the e-Therapy machine for quite a while now. On 11 September 2012, I had a chance to meet up with her again and talked about her experience. Listen to what she said.

 

 

My “travel companion”I never leave this (e-therapy machine) behind. It is always with me everywhere I go!

HeadachesI used the e-Therapy and within a day the headaches will be gone. I don’t have to take Panadol or Ponstan anymore. Previously pain killer drugs are always in my handbag, now I don’t carry any more medicine inside my handbag.

Hives goneWhen I was in the US, my daughter had hives. I used (the program) “Hives” on her. Just once . . . . no more complaints of itchiness.

Sleep Better, No more Body AchesIn the past, I took Panadol every four hourly. And in a day finished a whole strip – still nothing happened.  After Panadol did not work, I went for Ponstan . . . . (eventually) graduate to Arcoxia.  I stopped the medication. Now, I have this (e-Therapy) no more drugs for me.
