Colon Cancer

Thread starter #2
My Story (I copied/pasted from another thread)
I'm currently fighting cancer with concentrated cannabis oil...

So here goes:
I was diagnosed in 2012 w/ Stage 4 colon cancer met. to liver.

Later that year I had a colonectomy & removed 8" of my large colon on both sides of the tumor. They also removed over a dozen cancerous lymph nodes. They also installed my port.

I started Folfox chemo immediately after & went 4 months on it.

In 2013, I was in bad shape & almost died 3 times. My labs were horrible, but my CEA count went down to 18 from the chemo. I had been growing MMJ for the nausea & chemo side effects.
I decided to die with a better quality of life, rather than it being extended...on chemo.

So off of chemo, I 1st began the Gersen Therapy. Didn't work.
Then, a paleo diet...no go.
Then, the grape, apple, carrot cancer protocol...another no go.

Then, the Alkaline Diet/Cancer Therapy...good results though the diet is based on a false theory. You can't change the body's alkalinity through diet, or we'd all be dead of acidosis.

Then, The Yellow Dragon which is yogurt, cinnamon, ginger, black pepper, Echinacea & Tumeric....nothing, no go.

A friend of mine informed me about the cannabis oil & pointed me in Rick Simpson's direction.
My response to him after all the "cures", was hostile to say the least. I'd pretty much had it with folk medicine & apothocarists.

His mother had same cancer as me, but met to liver, lungs & brain. She went through Leukovorin chemo for 3 rounds & was told the cancer returned, was unresponsive to chemo, & was sent to hospice care.
He began growing for his mom & she began the concentrated oil.
All of her scans showed No Sign of Disease.

So, I researched, researched & rersearched the cannabis oil & everything about it. I have a Bachelor of Science in Architecture with a minor in static force engineering. My cannabis oil research was equal to a Masters thesis. I contacted Doctors in Israel, Spain, Great Britain, US, etc.
I contacted alternative doctors, oncologists, M.D. Anderson Cancer Research in Houston, TX, John Hopkin's, etc.
At that point, I decided to go with the cannabis oil (CO).

My initial protocol was ingesting capsules. I began with a 20:1 ratio of coconut oil:CO progressing to 2:1. It did nothing positive that I'm aware of.
I began taking it under my tongue & switched to suppositories. No positive results.

I found that virgin olive oil is more bioavailable than the coconut oil, so tried all the above with olive oil/cannabis oil capsules. My labs were getting much healthier & my high blood pressure issue went away, but I was getting real sick.
I learned later this is called the Herking Effect & I was fully into it.
Tumor counts stayed fairly high, but no further metasisis. Progress was minimal to null.

Next up was suppositories. Long story short...another no go.

Getting close to the present, I found the Budwig Protocol. This seemed to be a combination of a lot I'd already tried, or knew. I soon discovered the issues with/of bioavailability and the amount of cannabinoids per ng in the human system. A huge problem with cannabinoids is that the CO is unsolvable in water & is non-polar. That basically means that you can cram all the oil in your body that you want, but only 4%-15% will actually be perceptible in your blood stream. Big problem. Goes in your mouth & pretty much straight out

Later, I found a method to convert the non-polar properties of cannabis to being water soluble. The ingredients consist of flaxseed oil, cottage cheese & liquid lecithin. A capsule of say olive/grape/coconut oil mixed with CO takes an hour or more to take effect. This new method hits immediately & is felt 100% lasting for most of the day.

I later found the Canna Budwig protocol which incorporates the CO with the original cancer protocol. This is the best & most efficient method to absorb/ingest the CO. The bioavailability of the cannabinoids with this method far surpassed all others and my tumor count dropped to 4 with no chemo, nor other treatments. But, the diet part of the Canna Budwig Protocol was very prohibitive & difficult to stay on.

Nov. 2013, I had a very problematic & unsuccessful liver ablation surgery that almost killed me...again. The post-surgery results were not good & all tumors were awake again. It took me until March to recover at which point my personal life began to take many, many hits.

Around the middle of 2013, I joined 420 with a grow journal & eventually our CO discussions turned into this thread that Motoco began. After deciding not to throw the towel in, I began his preferred method of delivery which we call "tacking" now.

In 2014, no chemo still, my personal life & negative issues caused a dump of steroids, cortisol, adrenaline & just bad stuff to be dumped in my system which caused my tumor count to spike again. I almost passed away, this time alone, 3x again.

To date:
My tumor count is pretty bad (high), tumor in stomach & new tumors in colon. Several tumors on liver are shrinking, but the largest one almost doubled. I'm currently slated by my oncologist to pass away later this year. Ain't gonna happen. Anyway...

I've tried tacking exclusively, tacking in addition to ingesting CO & tacking in addition to suppositories. Tumors were kept in check, but not eradicated.

Currently, I've been tacking exclusively since Nov. 2014. Nothing else.
Tumors in colon are still there, but not growing yet and the largest tumor on liver (14cm) seems to be what the oncologists feel is going to get me. It has not quit growing & will probably metastasize soon.

Am I cured? Not in the least.
Do I feel good? Most of the time.

I'll continue researching & fine tuning my self-treatment. I'm still here and still fighting.

Now you see why there's no "testimonies". I'm not contributing to false hope as I see you understand. It's very difficult to get even the best intended folks to understand what Stage 4 cancer means & is.
Maybe 1 in thousands will be truly "cured", but that's the same odds as chemo, radiation, surgery, etc.

I've helped many with chronic illnesses, including cancer & just returned from the World Cannabis Week in Denver where I was asked to participate in a day long seminar on MMJ with other industry experts. I'm not going to bore you with my resume.

My advice, if you're going to go this route, do it 110% and do it with knowledge. Include a dietary change as well. If someone tells you that you don't need to change anything else, just take the oil....run. They have no clue what cancer is & how it works.
By the way, my cancer is Wild K-Ras genetic. Don't buy into the whole RSO about glands. As you probably know, its bs. Rick Simpson himself has retracted a lot of his earlier beliefs.
Stay away from "gurus" as well. We've enough to fight as cancer patients without the folk tale assumptions of others. Don't be dissuaded from using modern medicine & science to your advantage & knowledge base.
I'm a member of PACT, Colon Care Alliance, Cancer Est., Colon Cancer Alt Treatment, National Holistic Med Pract. and more. I state that because I know literally hundreds of colon cancer warriors. The only ones that I know that have lived past the given 5 years from diagnosis are the ppl that used every single available means to them.

If you choose to go the CO tacking route, integrate the PET/CAT scans, labs, dietitian, etc. into your personal protocol.

Good Luck...we're all here with ya.
 
I just found this now.

I almost felt stupid for having recommended you the Mushroom Coriolus Versicolor, since you've pratically tried every "alternative" there is on the market. I've seen some people and pets on it and, from what I've seen, you shouldn't label this one as "another bs story".
The man that "discovered" and did the first trials on the mushroom was and still is a teacher of mine.
He keeps track of every single one of veterinary cases he gets his hands on. I've even recommended this myself for an aged dog with colon cancer. That dog was given 3 months to live, and it has been almost a year now. That dog didn't do any chemo nor any other side treatments.

The mushroom is available for humans as well and it is taken as a dietary supplement, and is sold as powder.
If you ever wonder about it, please make sure you are buying from a trustworthy company, and not getting a 3rd grade extract that only has reduced ammounts of the PCB and PCP's (primary active substances). It sure is expensive: 90 euros for 250g's. The product brand I know that is "pure" and trustworthy is called Imunoplus.

Please give this thing a chance, you might be surprised. Anyways, it works as an imunomodelator and steadys your White Blood Cell counts.

PM me if you need any studies and further information on this subject, I do have research on it with me.

On the other hand, since my mom has Chron's Disease, and I'm growing for her especially. I would like to know more about your best bioavailabily cocktail you have ever heard about.
You might know that we have a huge density of cannabinoid receptors in the bowels and they have anti-inflamatory responses. If I can suppress that inflamatory trigger, Chron's symptoms don't develop, and there are no crysis. Thing is that I need those cannabinoids released directly on the bowels, without being destroyed by gastric secretions. I've heard of an Iron supplement tab that is revolved on some substance that blocks the acidic digestion on the stomach (I'm gonna dig deeper on the subject).

With that said, I must ask you if oil is the best mean to get high bowel absortion rates. Or if edibles are a easier path.

Thanks in advance, and please take a look at what I've recommended you. It is never too late.

Here I am too. You said this protocol you'll be describing is appropriate (sp) for prostate c. so here I am. I think prostate c. must feel similar to colon c. because it feels like that's where it is. Feels like sitting on a medium sized, medium hot rock with a dull but growing , ever present pain. Seems as though I should put the oil there too.

I've been tacking for 6 weeks, and at full 1 gram/day doses for about a week, give or take. I plan on another PSA test at VA in about another week or two. Would be nice if it were nice. I get very afraid of dying sometimes (like now), and other times it seams I couldn't care less because it'll be OK either way.

THEY ARE WRONG
Doctors have forecast my demise soon (aft June), but I have to tell you, although I feel weak, I also feel well and I feel the Power of the others on this site in my soul and spirit. I know many of you have it much worse than I, and I pray you feel me with you and find peace.:love:

Thanks in advance for this info. Cajun, and I'll keep the name, thanks for that too.

:thanks:

Hello. My wife has terminal spleen, rectal cancer. I have found a website on here to make the oil. There is no info on what to take it with. I do not have a lot of time. Please tell me a website or link with information about killing my wife's type of cancer.

Cannabis is amazing for crohns... Even just smoking the bud I mean instant relief... I'll wake up in the mornings when I'm flaring up with cramps and having the runs and possible vomiting but I i tough through it and smoke as soon as I can I'll get relief within seconds... It'll calm my stomach down and completely relieve me of all those cramps and reduce the amount of times I'll use the restroom. Never had the pleasure of trying oils of CBD buds yet but what I grow and buy does help a ton for me personally and helps more than any medicines I've used ever have.
