Paul Winter here. Sometimes I feel like a cancer expert, but in truth I have only studied cancer for four years. However I have collected many case histories one of which you might want to read:
In August of 1998 my 83 year old father was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. They inserted a stent to straighten the bile duct, gave him a minimal amount of chemotherapy and radiation to stun the tumor. In July 99, we got really serious about consistency in administering Cancell. In August, they did a CAT scan to see why he had another infection. The results of the CAT scan showed that the tumor was gone, the bile duct was straight. The doctors are amazed.
For cases where conventional treatment has the poorest success rate, such as pancreatic cancer, patients are convinced to take chemo almost immediately. Hello doctor! If a doctor tells you that your type of cancer has a low success rate, that success rate is for conventional treatments not for alternative treatments. Why take the known-to-be-ineffective treatment? This is all the more reason to try alternative treatments before ruining your immune system with chemo which prevents most other treatments from working.
Chemo works the worst on slow growing cancers, such as carcinoid cancers (mostly found in the small intestine), prostate, breast, testicular, and ovarian cancers. These are the type of cancers where your doctor should recognize that you have time to try alternatives that do not risk spreading (surgery) or causing more cancer (radiation and chemo). Effects of conventional treatments from my excerpts from the book World Without Cancer by Griffin:
You can e-mail me directly. I don't sell anything, but I did find the answer: cancer is big money so a cure will not be recognized by main stream medicine unless it is extremely expensive.
