      do you want to live??? why do u want to avoid chemo???
      i hear all about all natural and how natural stuff does not harm you....... amthrax it is all natural and can kill you... I think the holestic clinics are awesome once you finish treatment. holistic treatment combined with regular treatment is what i did it kept me going but if you are going because you are scared of chemo. time to man up and face chemo if you want to live. I know so many people who are stage 4 now because they did not want to do chemo at stage 1 they went for holistic like vit c infusion.
      in the end it is yourlife but think good and hard at why you are wanting to go this way if u r going this way to avoid chemo you should know facts that survival rate is not good at all so do research and soul searching...

      Thanks for your honesty and advise. The reason I was asking is because my father in law has non primary cancer, and he is pretty sick. He has been through 6-8 different rounds of chemo along with radiation. The side effects of the chemo and the 63 pills he takes each day is killing him more than the cancer is right now. The doctors gave hime his "expiry" date of 6 months last week. We may be grasping but we are not giving up and want to explore all options but we don't want to send him to a slaughter house. We are hoping to find a reputable clinic that may be able to help, Im just not sure if there is any. I am trying to find someone who may have gone themselves or know of anyone who has that may be able to recommend a clinic or advise us which ones not to go to.

      Hi 887teli,
      I am so sorry to read about your dad in law. We too are looking for other options since my sister was notified of her 'expiration date' of 3 months from Stage 4 Uterine cancer (now in her abdomen). A friend from Mexico sent this link on to me and we have been looking it over. If she ends up going, I will get back to you. As of right now, it is too expensive for my sister's budget to buy all the produce required for the 2 year commitment or all the supplements once the 2 week visit is done. I managed to collect enough donations for the required 2 week stay but she hasn't yet decided if she is going to do it and we don't have enough collected to buy any supplements etc that isn't included with the program. There are only 3 facilities, Hungary, Mexico and Hawaii. http://www.gerson.org Also a ton of interesting info is available at this link. http://www.cancertutor.com My sister also is saying that she cannot handle any more chemo or tons of pill popping. She has been fighting for almost 2 years. I can't say if this will work but at least you have another option available to research.
      Best wishes,

      887teli sounds to me like ur dr has given up time for a new dr. depending on what part of the country you are in I would highly suggest calling about clinical studies at major teaching hospitals

      I visited Hospital Ingles in Tijuana and it was an amazing experience - I did not turn around the inflammation but emotionally and spiritually it was a very nurturing place. I would look at the Ralph Moss reports - he has a book where he compares all of them. I would also look into Bill Henderson - he is an amazing resource.
      I wish you all the best,

      Thanks for the great info ladies, I will definately put the Ingles on my list to research. Coby, we are currently looking into the Bio Medical Centre (Hoxsey Clinic) A friend of a friend went there and he told us a little bit about it. He is going to send us his info that he has, He had Bone Cancer, and the cancer Clinic in Canada wanted to amputate his leg and he said no. I'm not sure the extent of his treatment before he went but I know he had some chemo. He went to this clinic and in the spring he was 6 yrs cancer free (With both legs I might add). We are also looking at the international Bio Care Hospital & The Oasis of Hope. Those where the three so far. We finally just got My Father In Laws medical records and we are going to start sending them to some of these places so I can let you know what the starting protocols are. Would it be easier to email you the information? I have started a little spreadsheet for a few of the different clinics and what procedures they offer I could send you that and I could also try to send you a few books I downloaded on some of the clinics, I'm just not sure if they are too big to email. Whatever helps right :)

      I know there are alternative/natural aides out there, but the drug companies block them. It's sad that we don't have more choices with our own bodies. My friend did a sugar free diet and some type of alternate diet. He ate according to his blood type and saw someone in PA. His prostate cancer went away on its own. He also is a man of faith. The problem is the drug companies aren't going to let natural cures be utilized. Look at Eastern Medicine, cures for all types of ailments.

      I think we may be totally missing the elephant in the room. IMO, the most important, and possibly only question here, is what does you father in law want?
