I wasn't going to go here but felt I better say what I had to say on self-medicating:

Oh boy Becky, I love you to bits, but I have to say quickly here that a little information in the wrong hands is often not a very good thing.  A lot of information in the wrong hands is often deadly, and I have seen it happen on more than one occasion.  

It is wonderful to research out various avenues of alternative medicine, and even explore them, as long as the attending physician is aware of them and you are both of the same page.  I wish Karen would pop in here and explain that even herbs can take away the effect of a prescribed medication, and dilute it to the point it is useless, when in fact it is needed.  

Although we think "all natural," these herbs can still cause a lot of grief if not used properly and mixed with something they shouldn't be. Try to remember these were used as the only means of medicine once, and they carry their weight too.  Example for the ladies:  If you take herbs as well as perscribed estrogens, trust me you would not like the results one bit, I know I tried it, without checking first.

We sure can't begin to start to self-medicate ourselves, especially in life-threatening situations without our physician knowing what is going on, it negates the entire purpose of having a doctor who is taking care of our well-being.  

However I wanted to say I have used a lot of chinese herbs in my day as you know, for everything from tennis elbow to warts on the kids, and sometimes things work, but sometimes they don't.  We tried them when my friend was dying as well but under hte doctor's supervision.  What I like is that they are all natural.  A lot of areas, (at least in Canada), in Chinatown have herbal shops.  There. you take a number, sit, wait just like a doctor's office, and the elder Chinese herbalist gives you a slip of paper to fill up front after discussing your ailments and his cure (which is free here anyway). those herbs are costly.  They then wrap everything in a piece of newspaper, you go home boil it up, and drink it down, and presto I can personally attest to the fact that over 90% of the time it happened to work on me, BUT I want to make it clear that in each case I told my doctor what I was doing so it didn't affect any other medications,etc..  Self-medicating is DANGERGOUS!

Great research to explore though and discuss with physicians.  I was aware of these as the woman who started this tonic is from Ontario, Canada.  

Michael, may this day be filled with great amounts of peace from pain, love, and a little joy for you to enjoy, and may tomorrow be the same.

Yes I know Sharon.  I was merely pointing out that when they tell you that their medicine isn't working, then why not try something else.

As for my cancer, I am taking apricot seeds and immutol. Apricot seeds have had thousands of cases where it's gotten rid of the cancer, and the immutol to boost the immune system.  I told my doctor right up front that I was doing this. He's heard of it and told me to go right ahead taking them.

It was merely a suggestion, not to upset anyone.

Ahhh, no one is, or will be upset Becky, and in an approach to getting rid of cancer I am sure everyone wants to do the very best for any person who needs that care. I know I would sure like to know all options as well.  

My point was that all parties have to be on the same page so each knows what the other is doing that is all.  The worst thing for anyone to become is an armchair doctor or psychiatrist, as sometimes it hinders recovery more than expediating it, when in fact they wanted nothing but the best.  I am glad your doctor knows about anything you try, and don't get me wrong it is good to explore all options there are.  I just believe that in any personal experimentation that involves a chemical change, sharing that information with the doctor is a good thing.  

I send only my healing thoughts to you, Michael, and to Martie's husband, Taylor as well.

My thoughts are with you Michael. You are truly a kind and generous soul and though I haven't been around lately, I'm priveleged to be able to think of you as my friend. I was going to put a hug icon here, but my goodness, it's been so long since I've been here that I've forgotten how to put one in!!! So I'll have to go the old fashioned route, xoxoxoxox

Hello Michael..

Not a day goes by that I don't think of you and wonder how you are doing.  I hope you are managing to eat, even a little to keep your strength up.

Thinking of you with fondness..
You are always in my prayers..

Big Hugs, Nancy.

Dear Michael: I am hoping no news about you is good news!  I pray for you daily and hope you are not suffering from the pain that you did have.

Sending you my warmest thougths Michael.  I called but there was no answer, so my timing is terrible, but know I do keep you in my thoughts, and hope the three of you are finding time to make some wonderful memories.  Take care now.

Dear Michael, may you be granted the gift of breathing easily and of recovering strength through sufficient nutrition.
May you suffer no pain.
Our Lord of Heavens together with the Angels walk with you and sustain you through your challenging times.
Love and hugs.
