I am sorry you think I am a spammer, I am a 37 year old woman with 3 kids and follicular lymphoma who is trying desperately to get well and I am going to New York to start one of the "pseudo science" treatments (IPT and high dose Vit C and Gc MAF) with an oncologist who got lung cancer himself 10 years ago and treated it with "pseudo science" and won his battle when no one thought he would. He also has patient after patient that I have personally talked to who have gotten better with this treatment. I would appreciate it if you wouldn't be so quick to judge as it doesn't feel good to be accused of being something I am not.
I should add that I am a nurse and am really close to having my Master's Degree in nursing so I have put enormous amounts of research and thought into the treatments I am doing.
Also I should note that several years ago I was given a devastating diagnosis of systemic scleroderma (before I got cancer), I was given 6 months to live since there was no effective treatment and I was able to use alternative treatments and went into remission. I even made believers out of ALL my doctor's. If it wasn't for that defining moment I probably would never have searched so diligently for the treatment that made the most sense for me.
I know that the reply probably doesn't make any difference with this woman. I do understand where she is coming from. She has complete trust in her doctor's and her treatments where as now I question everything and I don't like alot of the answers. I also didn't like the research that I found on the treatment options I was given by conventional medicine. When I first found out I had cancer I never thought I wouldn't go with conventional medicine, but when I asked the hard questions there was no answers forthcoming. I think my odds are better with alternative medicine, but I certainly know that many people will choose conventional medicine and that is their choice and I completely respect their choice. I am all for making whatever choice you feel led to as long as you educate yourself.
I am not sure if I will ever go back to that website. I am somewhat afraid to see how she will lash out at me and my comment. I find it somewhat funny (not really but couldn't think of another word) that before you post any comment on that site there is a section that comes up that reminds poeple to be nice.
I shouldn't be surprised by this, in fact I should have expected it, Jack still gets a lot of flack from conventional sites when he talks about AP for scleroderma. Sometimes I wish I lived in a different country. This is the only country that I am aware of that treats alternative medicine (they don't even call it alternative medicine in other countries) so badly.
