Has anyone used alternative treatments such as Lorriane Day, Chris Beat Cancer, The Hallelujah Diet and skipped the cookie cutter 6 weeks of radiation and five years of Tamoifen?  I am so confused , even the 2011 cancer book that the radaition department gave me in my red folder states that radiation can cause a second cancer, that they are working on improving these satatics.  I read the whole book cover to cover and was just blown away by what they are admitting of these chemicals.  Anyway, would like to know if anyone else is swinging on this bridge?  Thanks

Abigail, I don't think the Rife machine is a light weight.  I did a search on BCO to see if the topic was discussed. Very interesting. Seach "Anyone hear of a Rife Machine?"

There was a woman, bilbuz, who was dx with uterine cancer. She started using the machine, but she did not inform her doctor. After bilbuz had the hysterectomy, her doctor called her to apologize because she took out a healthy uterus, so apparently the machine worked.  

The reason bilbuz did not share what she was doing with her doctor is because she did not believe in alternative treatments. I think she is a believer now. (lol)

Joconrad, sorry to hear about your aunt. What type of breast cancer does she have and has she tried conventional medicine already?

I'd be interested in trying that Rife machine. Right now I am looking into PEMF. My naturo doc recommended one. He said that it was not the same as Rife. So finally, I started looking at the web page for it and I see it is contraindicated for oncological conditions. I emailed him about that and am awaiting a response. It may be something they have to put on their site so that the Medical Mafia doesn't come after them. With what it is supposed to do, I don't see why it would logically be contraindicated for cancer. But then, I'm no expert.

How's everyone doing with their alternative protocols? I think I am taking too many supplements, so that's another thing I need to talk to naturo doc about. Also, I must make an appt with a nutritionist who is alternative-minded. But I just came back to work this week and am working OT. I think I came back to soon. Keep breaking into tears. Next week I have bone density scan on Monday, PET scan on Tuesday, echo cardiogram on Wednesday, and my first "pump me up" by breast reconstruction doc on Thursday. Plus working. My exercise plans for these 2 weeks are screwed.

light machine, not light weight, light rays.  I've always thought tears means too much salt.  the gerson therapy woman, charlotte gerson said it was salt causes cancer.  I have also a meniers type trouble, & when I stopped all salt for a year, a few months into this my hearing returned.  I noticed in the site about the rife machine, in the meniers info, low salt diet isn't mentioned

zuvart, appreciate your directing me to the only alternatives thread via your profile, I'd lost it somehow

I've been thinking of ....tobacco.  not smoking, & not cigarettes, they have a large percentage of sugar & harmalines, which may be estrogenic (?), but I'm an astrologer, not a very good one apparently, tobacco is the only drug ruled by mars.  but how would one use it........it's a stron poison, & how would one get the leaf..........

These Barbies are aimed at kids on chemo or those who've lost their hair to alopecia. I had a student with alopecia a few years ago. I worked with the parents to help the other students and families in our class understand her condition. It was difficult for the student and I bet she would have loved a doll that looked like her.

I bet you are right Caryn. After I read the article a little more closely I see that it is intended only for kids who have lost their hair. I just wish chemo was NOT the standard of care, so all this hair loss wouldn't be necessary. Sorry if I offended anyone.

I'm having a pretty miserable time hanging out in the chat room with the ladies who are doing conventional treatments. They treat me like I am a "dead man walking" and do not permit me to discuss what I am doing (without criticizing the heck out of me). I am wondering if anyone would be interested in meeting in the other chatroom around 9pm Eastern on a fairly regular basis to discuss the alternative treatments we are doing or are considering.
