The fact that the IgM did not rise on schedule and waited until June shows that something is working, even though you have stopped taking oleander intermittently.
My guess is that you are increasing the oleander dosage too fast. There should be no need to bite the bullet. If you experience stomach discomfort and diarrhea, wait until it passes to go to the next dose. Some people need to increase little by little.
Besides the Oleander, I would urge you to follow the rest of the protocol, and the liver cleanse, although it can be unpleasant is a very important part. This will help your liver not be overburdened by the toxins flushed out by oleander.
I am glad that you are sticking to a healthy diet, but try to incorporate more of the supplements on the protocol, such as Inositol/IP6, curcumin, colloidal silver, black cumin oil, CoQ10, and you should really go down the list. Fight this disease with all you've got.
For your type of cancer, I would also strongly suggest the Blood Support by Jon Barron mentioned in the protocol.
Please do keep in touch as to your progress. I would consider it a win that the IgM antibodies have taken longer to increase. But tackle this disease in full force and effect without leaving one stone unturned.
Okay good, then you are doing all it takes. Good for you. I can see improvement Bill in just what you are doing. Oleander will only help. Start with one and slowly increase. If you have diarrhea or stomach upset stop and don't go up to the next dose until it subsides. Easy does it.
I know how you feel about the liver cleanse. The end is not pleasant, I will grant you. But it's not as bad as you think.
All in all, you are doing great. Keep me posted.
You can't seem to get past one capsule? Do you do okay with one capsule and start having problems when you introduce the second one? Just a question........ do you immediately stop taking the second cap when you feel the discomfort, or do you wait for a few days? Next question.... How bad is the discomfort and diarrhea? And Bill, are you following any other part of A Natural Anti-Cancer Protocol?
In any event, from your prior post, I see that there has at least been some delay with the IgM rising. If your feel that you must start Rituxin treatments, please do so. In the meantime, we will see if we can get to the bottom of your symptoms and if we can get around them. If you can take one oleander comfortably, then just take one. I also would not abandon any other part of the protocol that you are implementing.
In the meantime, do keep in touch and let us know how you are doing.
LOL! That's what Tony says........ "Don't overdo."
What you may want to do is spread the capsules out more. Say, when you go to three, take one at breakfast, one at lunch, and one at dinner, and see if that works any better. Always take them with food, although some people have no problem taking them on an empty stomach.. Also, before increasing to the next dosage, make sure that there is absolutely no discomfort.
Just a question......... How bad is the diarrhea? First of all, I would not increase to the next dosage until there was no discomfort whatsoever. And then, once you do increase to three, you might try staying on that dose until the diarrhea and any discomfort subsides, which should only be a few days.
Bill, even though you have had a difficult time with oleander (and by the way, I can very well relate, I had a most difficult time also), it does look like you are making headway in what you are doing. One thing that I would add though is curcumin, 2,500 to 3,000 mg daily. Also CoQ10. Actually, I would add as many supplements on the protocol that I could, especially if I was having trouble with Oleander. All these supplements have powerful anti-cancer and immune strengthening properties.
I can sense your disappointment as to having to undergo treatments again. But from what you say, this has kept the disease at bay for quite a few years, and if you feel it is necessary and that it is helping, please do so. But I would not neglect any part of the protocol while you are undergoing these treatments. Remember, this is actually a "win." The IgM did not rise on schedule, it took longer than normal, so something is working. Next time may be even longer, or maybe not at all. One thing that I would do, seriously, and I really don't want to sound like an "old scratchy record," is follow the entire protocol. This way, you address your condition from all angles.
Bill, I wish you the very best. Please keep in touch and let us know how you are doing.
Bless your heart Bill, I am so sorry that you are not feeling well. Keep in mind, you haven't been able to work up to the full dose of oleander. But again, just keep increasing slowly as your symptoms let you. And use the supplements in the protocol. They also are very effective in fighting cancer.
Yes, it does take time, so please don't lose heart. This is just a bump in the road. In the meantime, if your body needs to rest, please do not push yourself.
Marc is a gem and he is also there to guide you in any way he can.
In the meantime Bill, please take care of yourself and let me know how you are doing. Please know that my prayers are with you.
