A couple of years ago, I developed a sore on one side of my tongue. Went to an oral surgeon who offered to remove it. It was not cancer. Surgery was great and no more sore tongue. Last year same thing happened on the other side and I had it removed. and this time the doctor expounded on what the pathology report said and it was a colony of yeast just like the other. My tongue is now extremely painful on both sides now and i have lots of cracks on my tongue. Any suggestions+

Read the book Feast with no Yeast by Dr. Semon. His book helped me treamendously! I have pemphigus and now after a month on this easy to follow diet of no yeast or fungus, I am 90% better.
Doesn't hurt to try it.

The Future of Cancer Treatment: Personalized Iron-Deficiency Medicine. In humans, iron is an essential component of hundreds of proteins and enzymes. It is important for the body to systemically regulate iron homeostasis. Intracellular iron levels are regulated according to the body's iron needs. That's all very well in theory, but all humans and animals are born with cancer genes (iron-overloaded genes) and anticancer genes (iron-deficiency genes). Cancer is a disease of iron-overloaded (iron-saturated, iron-rich) cells. Cancer occurs when cellular iron overload chaotically affects cellular molecules and organelles (RNA, DNA, chromosomes, mitochondria, lysosomes, etc). Abnormally stored cellular iron chaotically damages genetic material. Researchers still don’t know all about the genetic changes that occur in tumor cells? Circulating tumor cells (CTCs) often appear as large abnormal cells in the circulation of cancer patients and can be used by scientists as cellular markers of the disease? Most cancerous tumors are caused by an accumulation of acquired mutations (5-10% of cancers involve inherited mutations)? There are a lot of rumors and myths about tumor cells and cancerous tumors, but cancer therapies must be personalized. Every cancer case is different and can’t be effectively processed by a one-size-fits-all approach to therapy. A treatment that works well for one person may not work as well for a different person. The body contains between 3.5gm and 4.5gm of iron, two thirds of which is present in hemoglobin. Blood contains iron, so blood loss leads to a loss of iron. Acute blood loss can lead to shock and even death. Iron-overloaded cells, bacteria and viruses love iron. According to the Bible, cancers and infections love iron, the Father of Oncology explains. Mixtures of milk and meat were prohibited; flint or obsidian knives were used to perform the circumcisions (these often had edges sharper than modern surgical steel). Today we know that meat contains heme iron, the type of iron that is more easily absorbed; caseins from milk and certain forms of calcium inhibit iron absorption; modern surgical steel contains iron (carcinogenic metal). Direct intratumoral injections of iron-deficiency substances (ceramic needles) are needed when tumors/metastases cannot be removed with surgery (ceramic blades). Personalized iron-deficiency methods (special diets, blood donations) can neutralize micro-metastases, HIV, antibiotic-resistant bacteria and ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis is a form of cancer) in hospitalized patients. In addition to cancer, personalized iron-deficiency medicine has the potential to change our effectiveness in treating many other diseases. http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/opinions/193889 ; https://treato.com/Iron+Deficiency,Lung+Cancer/?a=s ; Vadim Shapoval

Side effects and withdrawal symptoms after taking fluanxol for 3 days.
| Zarah
I have cancer and had bilateral masastectomy in Oct 2015. I have been having high blood pressure eversince my surgery. Recently my bp got worst and I had a bad neck and head pain that I thought cuold be associated to my high bp. Just a few days ago my doctor put me on fluonxol 0.5 mg and myonal 50mg (taken twice a day) for 5 days. Although my neck started to fill better, I started to fill the side effect almost immediately. On my second dose, I sweat and feel pins and needles sensation on my chest and stomache. I'm on my 3rd day of medication and it gets worst. Aside from the earlier effects, I cant sleep, feeling more anxious than before and the pins and needles sensations is getting worst. I rang my doctor and he told me to stop immediately. After 24 hours off the medication, I'm still feeling the side effects and getting scare. Is there a good method to wean of this medication naturally?

My Doctor's discovered I had T-cell Leukemia in July of 2011. He suggested we try out Campath ( as chemotherapy is not effective against t-cell leukemia ). Bottom line. when the dose went to 30 mg ( third treatment ) I had a fever. However after that I had no other side effects. The campath was effective for almost 3 years. We than went on a second treatment of Campath and it lasted for 1 year ( let's all get reall, Cancer gets smart and the treatments become less effective over time. )... We tried our third use of Campath 2 weeks ago, but this time it seems to be ineffective. However, I want you all to know whatever happens to me going forward. Campeth gave me almost 5 years of a d recent quality of life. I also was lucky as I could take it in the from of a shot and not intravenously. I did have to go 3 times a week for 15 weeks ( first time ) 3 times a week for 8 weeks second time...Do not get me wrong this is a powerful and potentially lethal drug, but it gave me 5 years of additional
and almost normal life. Hence my experience with campeth was excellent and now we go on and hopefully find an another drug that might help, but whatever happens, Campeth worked far better than I ever thought it would

It could be just a cyst. Should be checked by a medical professional. Depending on how old you are you can go to a naturalpath physician or a school nurse for their opinion. Also an MD I just prefer an ND for first line of defense. Some of the drugs they give us are worse for us than what we had. You should not let this go unattended if it continues.

breast cancer
| Miragesearch
It’s not clear what causes breast cancer.
Doctors know that breast cancer occurs when some breast cells begin growing abnormally. These cells divide more rapidly than healthy cells do and continue to accumulate, forming a lump or mass. The cells may spread (metastasize) through your breast to your lymph nodes or to other parts of your body.

Breast cancer most often begins with cells in the milk-producing ducts (invasive ductal carcinoma). Breast cancer may also begin in the glandular tissue called lobules (invasive lobular carcinoma) or in other cells or tissue within the breast.

Researchers have identified hormonal, lifestyle and environmental factors that may increase your risk of breast cancer. But it’s not clear why some people who have no risk factors develop cancer, yet other people with risk factors never do. It’s likely that breast cancer is caused by a complex interaction of your genetic makeup and your environment.

5 years ago was told I had anal cancer. Every since then I have been taking miralax and probiotics. I always feel like I have to have a bowel movement. Nothing helps me. The cancer is gone. but with bad side effects. stomach problems also.
