We have been tracking several clients that have added DCA to their protocols.
One thing that is interesting and shows our stupidity.
We were ordering and conducting experiments on simple carboxylate. Since majority of anti cancer compounds are carboxylated we theorized this ingredient should be isolated and tested in its own right. Carboxylates can be found everywhere. Amino acids, fatty acids, polyphenols, flavenoids, quinones, minerals, etc.
Carboxyl groups do not exist all by themselves in nature they are attached to something due to carbon bonds.
We were testing flouridated carboxylate we got from China, and found it to be hugely pro oxidant and we were looking for vetinarians to try these on pets with cancer.
Then my biochemist sent me an email pointing out that DCA, was in fact a simple carboxylate only attached to chloride bond and not flouride. So,simple carboxylates had already been in use for quite sometime why we were looking for them and trying to test them. Yes, I feel stupid.
We are seeing low level die offs that do not fit the usual
chemistries seen in pro oxidant apotopsis.
We are not seeing the potassium spillage nor uric acid spillage we are used to seeing in traditional cancer cell die offs.
We feel that these cells are simply starving to death and their destruction doesn't spill as many bi products.
One note: We do see spillage and inflamation involving immune cells, ie., first responders. If the die off is in the bone we are seeing very high calcium in serum. If spillage is in liver we are seeing dramatic spike in lactic acid.
Adenoma of colon still seems to be quite stubborn but had one dramatic die off that actually left a hole in the intesting where tumor was attached.
Most die offs are associated with extreme fatigue, nausea, vomitting, sometimes an elevation in temperature and low grade fever is seen but not always.
Low level die off describes when older or injured cancer cells die off sooner than expected.
High level die offs are associated with other toxicities, high fever, nausea vomitting, pain at the tumor sites.
