Here are the Herceptin side effects directly from their own website. These are the most common: fever, nausea vomiting, infusion reactions, diarrhea, infections, increased cough, headache fatigue, shortness of breath, rash, low white and red blood cell count, muscle pain. These are the more serious: Infusion and lung problems. Infusion reactions have been reported leading to death. Lungs problems are pulmonary toxicity and the other is an allergic type reaction that can interfere with breathing. It can result in heart problems including reduced heart function and congestive heart failure which can be fatal.
I do have an oncologist and my protocol was to be TCH which is more than just Herceptin. No I am not a member of the medical community but as I said, I have done the research and I for one do not want these drugs, poisons, whatever we would like to label them injected into me. That is my choice and thank God we still live in a country where we can make that choice.
Correct me if I'm wrong but I didn't "quote" anyone with misguided perceptions of treatments. A GREAT deal of my research has indeed been done within the .edu and .gov domains and I simply choose to look at other options. The traditional way hasn't worked for everyone. We probably all know someone whom it has failed.
Since you know that Mycology certainly IS taught in Med school, I suppose that means you went go to Med school or have done your own research into that subject? Otherwise, that puts you in the same boat as myself. Btw, I did not say Mycology wasnt taught, what I did say was that it's very limited. If you are interested, take a look at this letter written by Glenn S Bulmer from the UST School of Medicine and Surgery.www.springerlink.com/content/n... He expounds on the Med school teachings of Mycology. I know this is just one man's view but there are others I've heard from first hand. Do you know who funds a big part of our doctors education? Pharmacuetical Companies. (You can do your research on that as well. Doesnt that seem like a huge conflict of interest?) I have great respect for doctors but they only know what they are taught( just like the rest of us) and they have to rely on that unless they do their own research and I dont know many doctors who have the time to do that on their own..
Are you a doctor or scientist that has studied in this field? If not, who are you to say that you can not alter your body pH and that it is nonsense? Btw, you go on to say it IS possible in extreme cases such as alcoholics and diabetics. Is it possible or isnt it? I dont know about you but my cancer is an extreme case. What I put in my mouth can cause my bodily fluids to become more or less acidic. If you agree that you can change the pH of your urine, why would you believe that you can not change the pH of the blood?
As far as your quacks go, show me the proof you say they have in debunking these theories. No company pharmacuetical or otherwise would fund studies on the baking soda theory because baking soda cant be patented. They are not going to put their money and efforts into something that they cant get a return on. That's just the way business is and like or not... this is a business. How many researchers, doctors, scientists or inventors in history have been persecuted only to find later that they were right?
And finally, I never meant to insult anyone's intelligence. I was merely bringing up the subject to gather and offer information. I need to take some responsibility in my own outcome. That is how I feel empowered. That is how I feel I have some control over this parasite (so to speak).
Wow...this is, after all, the Alternative, Complementary and Holistic forum.
