Desperately Seeking Help for Mother With Extreme Cachexia

Posted by Sam (Adelaide, Australia ) on 07/24/2017 18 posts


My Mum is in palliative care and given her 2 weeks to live. She has extreme cachexia.

I have managed to give her one cup of carrot juice a day and 2 cups of kefir with flaxseed oil mixed in.

Can we reverse the cachexia?

She was diagnosed with cervical cancer in Oct last year and then had a full hysterectomy in Dec. Pet scan January came back all clear. Then March started to fill up with fluid in tummy. They have said malignant ascites and she has been taped about 11 times since March.

Is there anything I can do to help asap.

Thank you

I don't know if it is available in Adelaide, but medical marijuana has been useful in terms of improving appetite loss related to cachexia.

Sam, you might try a bit of spirulina powder in whatever she does manage to eat/drink.

Sam. To look for info. Type into Earth Clinics search box, ted bangkok cancer cachexcia. I will mention that some of the things not sold in your country might be available on intrlabs online. My phone will not allow me to post the emails today. But are easily found by the above method. Janet

Hi Sam,

You should immediately give her the following at a minimum:

Vitamin D3 60,000 IU every two days for ten days

Vitamin B complex (B50- thrice a day)

These are higher dosages but considering the severe cachexia are required. These have been recommended by Ted himself.

Hope it works out.

My Mum did not make it. She lost her life on the 31st of July.

I am totally heartbroken and feel as if I failed her.

EC: Dear Sam,

We are so very sorry for your loss. Many prayers to you, your Mum and your family.

Dear Sam - I am so sorry for the loss of your mother. You didn't fail her - you did all you could. I'm sure she knew that and appreciated everything. You are a good son. Take comfort in those who love you; be strong for those who need you.

Sam, I am sorry about the situation you are experiencing with sickness and then loss. You did not fail your mother, because you were trying your best. Some things in life we will never understand . Emotions can mislead us, but they can also help us. Grief is denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance. I have done a lot of grief work in my life and not grieving will make you ill. Do not make it a season of beating yourself up. Join a free grief website or group for a year while you transition. I encourage you to remember the good, grieve the bad, and look to become who you desire to be . Hope and a future is what we all need to go on with your life journey. That would please your mother, greatly. You were a good son. Love, Charity

Sam, you did NOT fail her. We are not the ones who direct the "traffic" of souls up or down.

You can trash your guilt feelings, knowing that you love her and you did the best you could with the tools you had.

Sam: You did your best and your love & concern is with her now. In 1997 I was near dead and in extreme pain when I concluded that death is the better option to such degrees of suffering. It is difficult to assimilate this truth but you can, in time. I lost my nephew almost a yr ago to cancer treatments. His condition was severe & acute but I made some major improvements and was hoping on getting him more non-toxic cancer treatments. A terrible loss. One yr later and the pain is diminished.

After you have relieved much of the current stress & pain for your dear mother (i lost my mom to cancer in 2009), to help understand the death process, read & study Near Death Experiences (many online sites for this). The more you expose yourself to these wondrous stories, the more you realize this world is not home, as the Apostle Paul realized many yrs ago --- "To die is gain".

Thank you.

I am finding it very hard to process. Our mother daughter relationship has been taken away. I will never get to call her again, I did this daily for hours. If I was not with her. She went down hill so quickly and I mainly blame the pharma and medical people. They were so cold and rude.

| know I should take care of myself however I am finding it hard to even get out of bed and face the day. I feel guilt for getting mad when she wouldn't eat anything and when she did it was dessert (feeding her cancer) and forcing her to eat. I can not get the feeling out that there was something I did wrong. Detoxed her too quickly and no help or support her body shut down.

I have been through too much heartbreak I can not see any good in this world.

My Dad in 94 (5 days after my 13th Birthday whilst on holidays with him), 08 my Brother in law, 09 My father in law, 2010 My other brother in law, 2011 sister in laws Mum, 2012 My Nan, 2014 my soul kitty and my Grandad. Now my Mum!

Also with my cat with lymphoma and my dog with some type of cancer too!!!

I have lost trust in myself and medical and natural.

I imagine the people who studied to work in medicine feel the sadness that the dreams they had of helping people became fruit less days as people declined. Then those people got hardened hearts. Like raising a child who hates you, I suppose. I hope to see the world through others eyes so I can encourage them along their journey. I'm sorry you have had so much loss, but maybe your life is to help others who experience such great loss . Start with yourself . You can only love others, as you love yourself and I am working on that one. Keep your peace and find ways to create some laughter in this season you find yourself in. Speak what you desire to come next in your life and it will. A 3x5 card with the words on it in your pocket to keep remembering you have a hope and a future and it's full of life. Love you much, Charity
