From Dr. Lamm's site:


"In bladder cancer we did the first double blind study showing that natural vitamins can prevent cancer. In bladder cancer patients high doses of vitamins A, B6, C, E and zinc ("Oncovite," Mission Pharmacal) when compared with RDA vitamins reduced tumor recurrence by 40%. In a mouse model we found that aged garlic extract added to drinking water significantly reduced growth of transplanted bladder cancer and prolonged survival. For patients with bladder cancer who wish to advance this science I will soon have a study sponsored by the NCI that will evaluate Green Tea and a chemical that blocks growth factors. In prostate cancer, this time in a rat model, we found that moderate exercise, but not excessive exercise, reduced tumor growth. Bladder Cancer Prevention
Oncovite:Vitamins A, B6,
C, D, E, Folic acid
Garlic, Selenium, Green Tea

Prostate Cancer Prevention
Vitamins D, E
Selenium, Soy, Lycopene
Low-fat Diet, Exercise

Yin and Yang
Medical advice, like any other, needs to be taken at times with a grain of salt. For example, water contaminated with arsenic or pesticides should be avoided, but studies have shown that risk of bladder cancer is reduced with increased fluid intake. Sun exposure increases the risk of skin cancer, but is associated with a reduced risk of prostate cancer. Soy is associated with a reduced risk of prostate cancer, but may increase bladder cancer risk and the isothyanates in cruciferous vegetables that are effective in reducing cancer risk can, in excess, have the opposite effect. Similar findings reported with vitamin C. Moderation, it seems, is good advice in all things"

Whit,

  In my case....  I did not have constipation after my 3 surgeries because I would not take the meds when the doc told me that they caused constipation.  Just didn't want to got through that.  The Essiac has helped a great deal with constipation, which I have a tendency for.  Essiac can be found in almost any health food store.  It has been around for a long time and is touted as beneficial to curing cancer.  Can't verify that fact, but I can verify that it is good for constipation..it is pricey

    I hestitate to give advice, but as far as the cancer thing goes, ..I do an antioxidant supplement, garlic, maitake mushrooms, and I do the AZO cranberry thing, lots of water and try to drink green tea everyday.....I make my own green tea (kinda nasty) and use local honey. There are lots of brands of green tea at the convenience stores...I do an herbal protocol, where I research herbs (been doing this for years anyway) and if I think that I find something I need (bladder spasms, anti-tumor, etc...) I steep the herb in brandy and take it as medicine...I look forward to my 4 teaspoons....(good stuff), I would be glad to answer anything specifically that you want to know, under the understanding that my answer is subjective only.... I don't know if what I do is of benefit to cancer, but it has helped my symptoms tremendously...

I have been to Dr. Lamm's site, where he talks about the bladder cancer research he has done, and find it interesting and helpful....  

good luck to you.... :)

Thanks Rosemary,
I did consult my Doc and his nurse and folowing what they say. I am not one to think I know what I'm doing when it comes to medicine.

However, I'm told that you know about what things I should be eating or drinking to make things better. Can you enlighten me?

Hey and welcome...

Jumping in about the constipation...(hey, Chris) ...

...Be careful what you take for pain/spasms...the meds (Detrol & Vesicare) have "CONSTIPATION" as a side effect. Check the side effects of your meds....

(I don't know if this is the cause of your problem. & I would definitely call your doc or his nurse and report the symptoms... )

I take Essiac syrup and one of the side effects of Essiac is the opposite of constipation...

Sounds like you have an upbeat Doc...the decision to stop smoking is a way of taking the responsibility for your health...Good luck..

I believe he said Grade 1 I was hoping to here that the tumor was benign which it wasn't. Very scary time, The gist of what I got from my urologist and my primary care that yes this was BC but that it was treatable and we will get it behind me and move on to becoming a healthier me. I'm sorry I don't know all the terminology
