I have slowed the progression of a cancer: this is not good enough
Making progress in reversing the effects of cancer. I am not claiming to have a cure for anything. I am working on cures.
All of my mentors (both living and dead) who have given me my methodologies for approaching cancer research are fairly unremarkable people. Some of the dead researchers that I like, and have never met, have given me their spiritual examples. I do research alone, on my family's farm, not for recognition, or honor, or glory or money. I do research because I like doing research. I also have this hope of helping others, not just myself.
The opening paragraph, in bold print above, gives one an idea of my mission as a researcher, and it give one some insight into a vision that I have for helping to find cancer cures in Nature.
Okay, now I will share below the case study that I did, where I followed one person who has a prostate tumor that caused his prostate-specific antigen test (PSA) to be elevated about the normal limit. That is, his (PSA) was elevated above the level "that most doctors consider normal" (which is 4.0 ng/mL or lower). To reiterate, his (PSA) was above 4.0 ng/ml. I want this point to be remembered.
It is also important to know that the (PSA), alone, does not provide a definitive diagnosis for prostate cancer. In order to help rule out a prostate tumor, or cancer, a prostate biopsy is usually ordered by a physician to help reach a diagnosis. The person that my case study involves did receive a prostate biopsy that was abnormal and what is expected to be found with prostate cancer. This is the information that we must hold fast to as we consider the rest of this case study, "the affected individual had an elevated, above normal, (PSA) and positive, that is, abnormal result on a prostate biopsy.
No chemotherapy or radiation therapy or other treatment modalities were use to treat a prostate cancer for the individual involved in my case study.
Allow me to use the word "individual" while talking about the "subject" that is involved in my case study for the duration of this report.
The individual reported to Mamushi Nature Farm with a history, a situation, with the prostate pathology, as explained above. After some dialog involving herbal treatment plans and some sharing of information about herbs grown on Mamushi Nature Farm for medicinal purposes, an agreement was reached on "running a pilot study" using one of the herbs, in an attempt to decrease the signs and symptoms, and also with hopes of positively affecting the course of the involved prostate pathology.
The pilot study was to run the course of a year (12 months), unless complications (sometime the herbal treatment cannot be tolerated well by the individual) resulted in a discontinuation of the treatment plan.
It was also agreed upon that I, the study director, would prepare all the meals (treatment rations) that would be eaten containing the treating-herb. Denaturation of the herb to the degree necessary for safety, without destroying the treatment-effect, is an art and a science, without a reliable literature source, since regimes for treating illnesses have often been loss because practitioners of herbal medicine, who are developing new treatment regimens are, necessarily, distrustful of dishonest characters who "steal," for lack of a better word, their creative ideas and other human and material resources, in order to make "big money." This is why I have been careful not to give away any highly detailed information" on how I do research. Also, my ideas and treatment plans are top secret, at this time, since I am still in the process of proving my research to myself. I have to duplicate my work enough times to trust the work, wholeheartedly.
The only reason I have published any information at all on this pilot study on a cancer research effort is to facilitate my supporting effort. This year has been a good year for me, as I have raised some money, financial support, to continue my work here on the farm. It does cost some money to do what I do. I have to care for an ill mother, at the same time I doing my work. It is extremely difficult.
Results of the pilot study:
After the first 6 months of the above mentioned pilot study, the individual received a (PSA) that was decreased below the initial (PSA) that was measured 6 months earlier.
Six months later, after the last (PSA), this one being at the one year point, or the end of the pilot study, the (PSA) was again measured and found to have again decreased, below the measurements of any of the others done previously.
Each time the (PSA) was taken, it was found to have decreased below the point where it was last measured.
However, the level of the (PSA) remained above the level of 4.0 ng/mL which not what we had hoped for. Of course, even though this was an objective, that is, scientific study, the humanness within the heart of a cancer researcher, likened unto myself, compels him or her to strive for a cure.
This concludes an initial report on cancer research that has been completed using methodologies that exist outside of university settings or research hospitals, being done on a Japanese Nature Farm. This research effort has a long ways to go before it is ready to be published widely, for use by the established medical community. The results have been positive but not positive enough to cause excitement within the greater medical community.
