A difficult turn of events

ImageThe last several days have been scary, and for me, heart-wrenching. And we’re not sure what to think.

Beginning five days ago, after he had been seeing tiny scabs coming out, my dear husband started bleeding again from his bladder. Now for my husband, blood in the urine has been a sure sign of cancer. Granted, there are other reasons for it. Several years ago, he had blood in his urine due to his bladder being burned from radiation treatment on his prostate. But with what is going on now, it has always pointed to a return of his cancer that an upcoming scope revealed.

So we are left wondering: is the current bleeding reflective of too-tender skin under those fallen scabs, or is it reflective of still having cancer? i.e. was the sodium bicarbonate with iodine and magnesium (plus continued supplementation of selenium and more) just not enough this time like it was last May?  It’s not knowing that is so hard. I do lean to believe it’s just the tender skin underneath…but we’ll see.

We do have his surgery scheduled for Thursday, so we’ll know more then.

I had a consultation today with the doctor more well-known about the use of sodium bicarbonate/baking soda to cure cancer. And he brought an interesting idea I’m going to look into–that my husband might go MUCH higher than the recommended 400 mcg of selenium he’s on. I found out about selenium’s anti-cancer aspect a good twenty years ago after reading an article about a village in Siberia where practically no one got cancer….and the factor appeared to be the high levels of selenium in their soil.

So I found a study titled “A report of high-dose selenium supplementation: response and toxicities“. It first implied that 3200 mcg of selenium had “selenium-related side effects”, but their blood revealed “no peak plasma selenium levels.” i.e. they “observed no obvious selenium-related serious toxicities” at 3200 mcg. So that is hopeful for me in raising his selenium supplementation, especially since I didn’t see a genetic defect in testing we did on him that would imply he wouldn’t correctly break selenium down.

So I’ve ordered a much stronger selenium from here: http://www.whnstore.com/Revici-Selenated-Tung-Oil-p/whn-tsel-1oz.htm?click=0

I completely regret I didn’t start him on the Frankincense oil already. As mentioned in comments to my first blog post, it has good studies showing it can tackle bladder cancer. I was looking at it as a post-surgery, prevent-cancer treatment. But luckily, he had started on Apricot seed kernels on his own, so hopefully that will be as good for him as it was for the gal who saw those seeds keep her free from cancer.

So…we continue with sodium bicarbonate, but we have substituted two of the three doses with potassium bicarbonate…also known for alkalinizing. We’ve kept him at 8 most of the time still. The only exception is when the bleeding is heavier, which can shoot him down to 6.5 and 7.
