Routine

As of the summer of 2016 I find myself in the early stages of yet another recurrence. I am devising a new protocol which I hope to stabilize the brain tumor growth, with the goal of holding off on a fourth brain surgery. My next MRI will be in Oct 2016. We will know then if I have been successful in keeping the tumor at bay. I’m okay with living with a brain tumor, but the idea of another brain surgery is exhausting. Once I have the full plan decided, I will update this page.  – Jess

Working List:
Cannabinoids (Rick Simpson style oil)
Metformin
Alfacalcidol
Chlorotoxin
Low Dose Naltraxone
Garlic
(DC Immunotherapy -On Hold)

*********************************************************************************

This is my old list of supplements/off labels:

Metformin (500 mg 2xd): lowers & stabilizes blood glucose, targets cancer stem cells
DCA (0.25 g 2xd: 2w on, 1w off): induces differentiation through modulation of PKM2/Oct4 interaction
Zinc (50 mg 1xd): repairs mutant p53, lowers copper (an angiogenesis promoter)
Cannabinoids (no exact dosing, 1.5 hours before bed): kills glioma cells
Curcumin (2,500 mg 1xd): kills glioma cells, lowers inflammation (a tumor promoter)
Garlic (3 finely chopped cloves 3xw): kills glioma cells, lowers inflammation
D3 (2,000-10,000 IU, varies on mood): boosts immune response
* protocol completed * Chlorotoxin (4-5x 1xd): kills glioma cells, lowers inflammation
Newcastle Disease Virus (a shot every 3 mo): kills glioma cells, boosts immune system

I used to be on a much more exhaustive list (seen below), but it was too much to maintain. Above is my bare-bones treatments – the ones I do daily. I consider myself to be in a maintenance phase. Since I’ve been considered “stable” for a few years (since Oct 2012), I’m on a more basic, manageable, routine which began after I passed 2.5 years of stable scans. From time to time, I often add extra supplements (melatonin, resveratrol, Ip6, etc.), or change up my diet (intermittent fasting, RKD, non-processed vegan, etc.), or toss in extra off labels (like Accutane, or Naltexone). I never stick to the same protocol for long. It’s not because I’m trying to confuse the tumor, although that may be a benefit, instead it’s because I can not survive in a monotonous atmosphere. I have to be able to change it up.

This is my life, I’m not a pill taking robot, I have to live.

Here is a paper from my German clinic with information about the Newcastle Disease Virus:
