I haven't been posting much here lately but I want to let everyone know
that I'm still alive. I sent this out to my list of friends. Feel free
to share it. And I'm still filtering spam.
Hello friends and family,
As of today I am 18 months in since I was diagnosed with stage 4 lung
cancer on Aug 1 2016. And I'm still alive and feel mostly normal. Back
when I was diagnosed I didn't expect to still be around this long
especially considering that I have refused all conventional treatment.
In fact, it's more likely that chemo would have had no effect against my
cancer and would likely have killed me.
I have just completed a second round of radiation and immunotherapy
drugs and this time there was no effect either positive or negative. The
idea was that if there is an immune response in progress that this will
boost it. But at this point I still have no idea why I'm still alive
because the scans remain confusing.
The last scan in early December showed everything the same size, nothing
changed; nothing bigger, nothing smaller, no new mets. Most people would
be thrilled but I'm confused. The immune system trick I'm doing has a
more binary outcome where it either totally wipes out the cancer or it
does nothing. So I expected it to either be a lot bigger or a lot smaller.
There are several possible explanations.
1. White blood cells also light up on a PET scan and the cancer might
already be totally dead and is very slowly being eaten by the immune
system. And that would be great.
2. I have been taking an anti-cancer cocktail of my own design that
attacks cancer through multiple pathways and this combination has kept
the cancer at a stalemate, neither growing or shrinking. But it would be
odd that it didn't grow or shrink on any tumor. But apparently this
cancer is hard to image and results are not reliable. In the past
different doctors see different things.
3. I have a very slow growing cancer, and I'm just lucky, and nothing I
did had any significant effect.
4. The universe really can't get along without me in it and it changed
its mind about booting me out.
At this point I actually feel like I know less than I used to but at the
moment I'm working on 2 different strategies at the same time. While I
am hopeful the immunotherapy trick worked I have added more anti-cancer
supplements as well as starting on the Ketogenic diet. If option 2 is
correct my new plan should set the cancer back quite a bit.
I recently found out that normal cells can run on either sugar or fat,
but cancer runs on only sugar. That immediately lead to the ketogenic
diet where I eat no carbs and make up for the calories in eating fat.
And as a side effect - I'm losing weight. There also is evidence that
once I get to a very sugar starved state that hyperbaric oxygen
treatments might really fry cancer. But I'm still designing a cocktail
that should really kick butt in a way that has beneficial side effects.
The keto diet is very counterintuitive. Bacon good, fruit bad. You have
to eat fat to lose fat. But I'm losing weight and women should find me
even more irresistible. It's a diet that seems to work well for anyone
I'm also documenting everything so if you know people who have cancer -
this might be useful. And feel free to pass this email to anyone
interested. It might turn out that I'm one of the most advanced minds on
the planet for fighting cancer and if that's true - isn't that just a
little bit sad. Here's the link:
I'm also discovering the very very premise that the oncology world is
based on - is wrong. Most people believe cancer starts with a genetic
mutation that leads to cancer. But it turns out that cancer might start
as a metabolic disorder that leads to genetic damage. If this is true it
might be easy to create a general cure for all cancers that targets the
unique metabolism of the cancer cells. Something like creating a toxin
that activates in the presents of fermentation byproducts and attached
to sugar as a delivery mechanism. You get a shot and the next day all
your cancer is dead. More on that in the future.
So - bottom line is - more likely than not that I'm still here next
year. But I can still drop dead unexpectedly at any moment. If that
happens either the universe will end or someone will start a cult in my
name based on the worst aspects of my personality. (I'm glad I won't be
around to see that.) But if I'm dying I'm doing it way to slow to be
interesting. Thanks for reading my detailed explanation of no news really.
