Informed Consent & Questions to Ask

Most cancer patients are both in fear and overwhelmed with their diagnosis. Most dont think of asking even the most important questions.

To compound the problem, most oncologists dont secure informed consent, which means to clearly explain the benefits and risks of all credible options and on the consequences of declining conventional oncology.

Below, a few questions that can be asked before making a decision.

TEXT UNDER CONSTRUCTION

Copy the questions that you want to use onto a notepad or tablet to take to your doctors appointment.

Ask doctor if you can record his answers for future reference. Need to ask from the legal point of view.

  1. Does cytotoxic chemo cause other forms of cancer ? 
  2. 2. Does chemo and Rt destroy slow growing cells ? 
  3. Or just fast growing cells ? 
  4. 3. Does chemo cause chemo resistance ? 
  5. 4. Does chemo spur the growth cancer stem cells ? 
  6. 5. Are circulatory cancer stem cells the engines of metastases 6. Is the reason cancer is the only disease that has a five years “remission” rate because after five years, there is an avalanche of new or rekindled cancer ? etc. The hard evidence to these six question is yes. Conclusion: chemo, like ionic radiation are a medical frauds. There is no relationship between chemo tumor shrinkage and survival.
  7. 7. What about cancer immunotherapy. The 2018 Nobel of medicine went to cancer immunotherapy. Better than chemo. But still crappy, lots of side effects, like the immune system going crazy and attacking other tissues than the cancer cells. 
  8. 7: will chemo work better if i dont eat for three days ? Will the chemo work better with hyperthermia ? Will the chemo work better with high dose vitamin C ? Answer is yes to all three of these questions, but most conventional oncologists are ignorant. Better than chemo solo, but holistic approach still is better. If your Mom asks these questions and she gets answers, you can follow up with me. I would also ask for the phone number of ten patients who used the same protocol with the same cancer and are still alive at least two to ten years after treatment ? I would ask the oncologists for published studies for what they claim ? I would ask for a signature on legal paper that he guarantees that inflammatory hell wont precede death. I dont have a license here, so i cant give you any medical advise. But if it were me, i would refuse the chemo. People who slam the door of their conventional oncologists have three times more survival. The well known French oncologist Gearges Mathé advised at the end of his life for cancer patients to stay away from prestigious cancer centers whose well paid experts think they know the best treatments, but in reality they just hasten the death of most of their patients. The more robust can survive, but most dont. At least explore first all of the other credible options. . Most conventional oncologist do not secure informed consent. They use scare tactics. And are ignorant for the most part. And make huge profits selling chemo. I would also deny surgery. Unless it’s a question of life and death. Most surgeries spread ca 

On Diagnosis

What is my diagnosis?

Is this a fast growing or slow growing cancer? How long has it been growing in my body?

What do you think caused my cancer?

-Do you think my diet, pollution or stress had anything to do with it ? -Was it genetic?

Metabolic

ASK ABOUT TESTING

I would like to get the Oncostat Plus chemosensitvity test to see which drugs my cancer will respond to before starting anything. Can you order that for me?

Will you be ordering genetic testing to make sure the drugs won’t be severely toxic to me?

For example, patients with a DPD enzyme deficiency makes 5FU severely toxic and deadly

I’m really nervous about this and would like to speak to 5 of your patients with the same cancer as me that are cancer-free after 5 years. Is that possible?

Do you have any patients with my kind of cancer that are in remission after 10 years? Can I speak to some of them?

If the doctor balks at this

Would you be willing to call and ask them personally if they would talk to me?

Can I get a copy of my medical records before I leave today?

  

To make right decisino, need to ask Key ones

  1. That’s why i would try something more holistic and gentle first, with proper monitoring. You can’t heal anything durably by destroying symptoms (a tumor is a symptom to a metabolic and immune disorder). Got to go to root causes and have a holistic approach. Furthermore, if she does chemo, her chances of reversing this cancer with alternative therapies will be less. Most holistic oncologists dont want to take chemo and rt patients because their success rate is not as good. Chemo is nothing less than expensive poison that destroys the quality of life and enriches oncologists and their clinics. If she does opt for chemo, question
