Hi Dr Z and Group at large,
My friend Cindy and I are advance practice RN’s and she has been doing research on my behalf over the past couple of months as I have been battling breast cancer since March 2014. Recent serial CT’s from Oct 2015, when I was hospitalized for 11 days and that radiologist noted a sub centimeter nodule in my left lung among the other findings, to one in Dec 2015 showing the same nodule had grown by 1 mm, to the most recent one done on June 22, 2016 which shows the same nodule has grown another 1mm and now there is a second sub centimeter nodule in my right lung.
I have not been on chemo agents or aromatase inhibitors since last Sept but was supposed to be on them for the rest of my life due to the nature of the cancer and all the missed steps along the path initially.
Cindy would like me to start Frankenscence oil internally right away. One of my patients swears by Oregano oil for immune boosting /cancer prevention properties. My labs are wonky. I basically have no immune system and no parastalsis do my guts don’t work. I’ve lost 30+ lbs since Jan. Yet, my providers where I live said I needed no f/u!
I found a new oncologist and we have ordered some tests. Waiting for insurance. In the meantime I would like to know more about these oils. Peer reviewed articles? Empirical data? Your thoughts on Oregano oil? Will Fankenscence oil potentially change lab readings so much that it could mask underlining disease processes that we are trying to find at this point? I’m all go starting anything orang ic and natural if it will boost my immunity and help me fight but I also need to know what’s going on so I’m not sure if I should wait to start supplements like these until the oncologist has a clear picture and baseline then start these to see if it will help? Thoughts?
