Alternative Pancreatic Cancer Treatment
Searching for the Cure
If you talk to my mom about alternative pancreatic cancer treatment, you will get an earful. My mom is a rational, sensible human being. She's practical and down-to-earth with a bend toward the scientific. She's been a registered nurse for over 30 years and has a passion for the medical field.
So it will come as no surprise that she is skeptical of "miracle cancer cures." She's known enough doctors to know that there's no conspiracy, no pharmaceutical cover-ups, just sincere, for the most part, honest, compassionate men and women who truly want their patients to live. Not good for their reputation when the patients die on them. So if there are cancer "cures" out there, most doctors would be using them to save their patients. And that's the basis of mom's alternative pancreatic cancer treatment philosophy.
However. . .
When your back's against the wall and you discover you have a terrible, terminal illness, and the doctor's aren't holding out much hope, it is surprising what you will consider.
And we've considered a number of alternative treatments. We haven't tried them all, but we've researched, discussed and debated. Join us for the conversation:
The pH Miracle Cure touted by Dr. Robert Young was one of the first on our pancreatic cancer alternative treatment list. It came to our attention through a local "celebrity" by the name of Kim Tinkham.

Another form of alternative treatment that we've researched and are trying is Barley Life Supplements. These supplements may not actually be considered as an alternative pancreatic cancer treatment, but more as an aid in keeping mom's blood counts high enough to continue chemotherapy. This is an ongoing experiment on our part and
you can read about the success or lack thereof here.
And speaking of diets, there is an actual cancer diet that we have researched and tried. It is called
The Flaxseed Oil and Cottage Cheese Diet.
The science behind this diet is very interesting and worth taking a look at. As always, research carefully and talk with your health care professional before trying any self-administered cancer therapy, including these diets.
Always talk over your treatment options with your doctor and/or medical team. Mom has chosen to use conventional, orthodox cancer treatment for her pancreatic cancer. She has also included several supplemental treatments with her doctor's approval to further enhance her treatment. Her one bit of advice on this issue is "first do no harm." This is ancient advise to all physicians, and very applicable here. Should you opt to try some of these alternative treatments, follow up with tests and diagnostics to make sure you are doing no harm to your body. Remember Kim Tinkham's story. This young, vibrant woman lost her life trying to "heal herself."
Sometimes alternative treatments just aren't the right choice.
