Living With Stomach Cancer

Nine months ago I was diagnosed with adenocarcinoma, a cancer of the upper stomach. It had metastasized to my jaw, where it was first detected. It was at stage three and the three to five year prognosis was not good. I was told that chemotherapy would increase my lifespan, but not by much and that my quality of life would worsen. I surfed the internet for alternatives and case histories, but most of those referring to adenocarcinomas were in the in memoriam sections. Then I found that some people who had been taking drugs to counter arthritis, had survived their adenocarcinomas. I decided to try them.

I also relied on information I found from various contacts who followed Rudolph Steiner's ideas. I fully believe that there are four key factors at work in the development of cancer:

  • the growth of cells,
  • some mechanism, as yet not fully understood, which controls or fails to control the growth of the cells, i.e. whether they grow randomly or as intended,
  • our emotions, and
  • how we feel about ourselves personally.

I think that the drugs work on the mechanism, and I work on my emotions and the way I feel about myself. It all seems to be working together. The symptoms, stomach pains, migraines, dizziness, anaemia and tiredness got worse month by month. However, after six months the trends leveled out, then began to reverse. That is where I am now.

I am gradually feeling better. The combination of drugs I am using is Hydrolised collagen, Glucosamine sulphate, and aloe vera. It looks very promising so far, although it is still early days to judge their effectiveness.
