Healing vibes for my friend J-cancer?
Posted 12 February 2009 - 05:57 AM
Granted he put a lot of stress on his colon, he's been drinking 30-packs of natty ice daily for 15 years, he eats like shit if he remebers to eat at all, and he has used almost every toxic substance there is.
Be that as it may, 32 is way to young to die in anything but a car accident. What scares me is if he does develop cancer, he is reluctant to seek help, as he is agoraphobic, slightly schizotypal and is (sometimes justifyably imo) afraid of doctors, hospitals and chemotherapy. He is actually considering not getting the chemo because his dreadlocks would fall out:rolleyes:
Any advice for him?

I will root for him to not develop cancer.
If he bugs out on Western doctors, he can check out the clinic at the New England School of Acupuncture, Watertown, (617) 926-1788. Preventive medicine should be able to do him some good, with this big a heads up. People more qualified who are there can give him more info.

I had cancer at 33. My hair fell out. It was not the worst part.
Treatment is rough.
However, I've seen a friend die of cancer and the side effects of treatment have nothing on late stage cancer. Nothing.
I think that if he has a chance of nipping this before it does something to him, he oughta buck up and do it.

not sure what he eats, now, but if he can add 1 fruit (juice counts, too) and one vegetable a day, that will be better than nothing. This can be done on tour, too -- lettuce on a burger, tomato on grilled cheese, etc. Tour is not an excuse to eat poorly.
If he doesn't exercise regularly, turning up some music and dancing at home is good. Two sets a day can help keep the doctor away. And if they don't, at least you got your dance on to some great music while you could.

it worked a lot better than bumping it..
I had no idea what this said.
I didn't respond because I don't know a thing about cancer treatment. Mama knows best in my experience.
I do hope that your friend stays healthy and that this isn't cancer!

i watched my mom die. like literally sat right there when she took her last really horrible breath of really horrible breaths mixed with disorientation and unimaginaable pain of the previous 72 hours. i'm fucked up over it. really. in the end it was organ failure caused by renal failure and dehydration. but i guess the hospice people said someone she trusted needed to tell her it was ok to go and that's what i did because she didn't really have a choice but she was really suffering for a long time. so if he can cure it he should because the other option of dying too young is just hard on everyone who cares about him and not doing it is sort of selfish. and i'm very hesitant to ever even put that out there because i don't want to hurt anyone else who might lose someone too young, but others' results will probobly vary.
