Past Christmas

Saw my patient again last monday, and I would say I am bit surprised if not elated at the turn of events. When I first saw him, I was guarded and frankly pessimistic (pardon my weakness) if he could last til Christmas. That was my goal, he be able to spend Christmas with his loved ones!

Well, apparently, he is doing quite well now, despite the 5 years of chemo and 15 session of daily radiotherapy. In fact so well that he's now a bit complaining, a bit more talkative and making funny comments at me or at our staff.

He's still weak though, cant walk, but can sit for longer periods. I really dont know what I did, if ever I did anything for him. A bit of ginseng, a bit of homeopathic rememdies, a lot of body works (Access).

I wish him luck and his pain to go away and gain all the weight he lost!

Merry Christmas to all!!!

I was severely disturbed by an ad about MSg being a natural food for the intestine! That is sooo misleading! What is food for the intestinal tract is glutamine NOT glutamate!

Cancer is the leading cause of death by 2010!

Its like a problem looking at us eye to eye and challenging us what are we suppose to do about it!!

Personally, I feel that cancer as the leading cause of mortality is our own creation. We created this disease as we let "progress" take its toll on us and on Mother Earth. How much more of this do we need in order for us to realize that cancer is not just about individual struggle, its not just about losing a mother, father, son or daughter. This is about the survival of our species.

If we make projections, considering the aging population, our species can become in peril or extinction in probably a few hundred years.
