I had colon cancer (stage 3) and was diagnosed Dec. 2007 and had surgery on New Years Eve of 2007. I did have surgery and had about 10 inches taken off my colon. They recommended chemo. At that stage I did not know what to do except chemo. I think I had 7 or 8 treatments…But on the positive side I never got sick, never sick to my stomach, never lost my hair, never lost my desire to eat, but I must admit I felt terrible after the treatment. At that point I started to learn all I could to educate myself and boy I did. I do not want this stuff to make an appearance again. I purchased book after book, read, read and read some more and continue to apply as I see fit to do …We can learn an awful lot from other people.
What alternative therapies did you do and which ones helped you the most?
First off I started to research supplements and cancer. And almost the first one I focused on was Essential Fatty Acids. From Brian Peskin, The Hidden Story of Cancer and the recommended oils. I believe with all my heart this has what helped me the …Taking more omega 6/omega 3 in a ratio of 2-1. More omega 6 than 3 and continue to the day taking them…as it help oxygenate the cells of the body. Research comes from Dr Otto Warburg. Lack of oxygen to the cells is the most basic cause of cancer. I also have written a cancer resource if anyone would like it as I give it away for free. My email is sid_aust (at) msn dot com, if you want a copy.
What books, products, and supplements do you recommend?
At the top of my list is The Hidden Story of Cancer by Brian Peskin. I take the recommended essential fatty acids and more omega 6 than omega 3 and will not fail. Also next most important book is Victory Over Cancer and Making the Unthinkable Possible by Dr. Rath Health Foundation.
Are there any contact details or links you would like to share?

From the World Health Alphabetization Online Library: “The following pages provide an overview of the most recent research and clinical studies about the health benefits of micronutrients in fighting cancer. This collection of scientific facts proves that anyone who privately or publicly questions the health value of micronutrients does not serve YOUR health, or the health of the people, but rather the multi-billion dollar investment ‘business with disease’ based on patented pharmaceutical drugs. We encourage you to forward the link to this important online library on natural health – one of the largest ones in the world – to your friends. You may also print out the articles you find most important for your own health condition and share them with your doctor. Any responsibly acting health professional will be grateful to receive such science-based health education.”
Every member on this site I can say for sure they either have had cancer, a loved one has cancer or know someone with cancer or someone who has died of cancer. I for one am thankful for much learned info from this site or books etc. I have posted info on Dr Matthias Rath and his peer reviewed research before. His research is awesome expecially on Cancer and Heart disease. Dr Rath worked with Dr Pauling with Vitamin C research until he went out on his own and formed a research lab in CA on cell medicine. We must educate ourselves because our doctors will not tell you or spoon this info to you. You have to dig it out yourself….I know my oncologist did not say a word on nutrition, I had to bring the subject up. I learn from every source I can and now want to inform anyone who is interested. They can now take a free online course on health from Dr Rath research organization…There is no financial gain for anyone…You just want to learn …I am taking it myself now. So here is the link if anyone want to have a basic understanding and that could potentially save your life…my email is sid_aust (at) msn dot com. Anyway here it is and know you will enjoy taking the course…And also you can share with others one person at a time…I don’t think any will regret it…
