I noticed this thread, read through it, and thought I would contribute some lessons learned in my life.
1993 I was a Financial Planner, investments and insurance, etc, and I scheduled an appointment with a couple that were referred to me. Met them at their house where when I first sat down with them the husband said, 'don't know who you are, don't care, just get the f out of my house. I scheduled the appointment with the wife.
His name was Al, and one month prior to meeting him, he was reaching for a glass out of the cubboard and snapped a bone in his arm. He was diagnosed with two forms of terminal cancer, multiple myeloma, and the end stage of prostate cancer. Doctors gave him 2-3 months to live. They immediately started him on Chemo.
Al was a tough minded business man, so he started doing his own research. He discovered that using mega doses of shark cartilage had an impact on 60% of those with soft tissue cancer. So, he started the program. In a very short period of time, his prostate cancer went away, and his multiple myeloma went into full remission.
Al lived 5.5 years longer, living a normal life, running his business, playing golf, etc, and when he died, it was due to a terrible fall he took which shattered his pelvis in multiple places. During those years, he and his wife became like a second set of parents and close friends. I dined with them regularly, and learned a great deal from him. He had a major influence on me and my mindset regarding cancer. And BTW, his oncologist would refer his patients to Al to explain the benefits of the cartilage. His doctor could not EVER mention cartilage because it is not a recognized therapy by the AMA. His doctor admitted it was the cartilage and not the chemo or radiation that worked on Al.
It was about three years after I met him that my own father was diagnosed with lung cancer. When I first learned his condition, I told him, at Al's insistence about the shark cartilage, but my parents were the type of people that if the doctor did not tell them to do it, they ignored the advice. So my father went through chemo and radiation, and six months later was given a clean bill of health from the good doctors.
Six months later, he developed a metastasized tumor in his esophogus. He could no longer swallow food, not even his saliva without choking. Doctors inserted a feeding tube in his abdomen, and they told him he had 2-3 months to live, that he was maxed out on chemo and radiation, and offered NOTHING therapeutically for my father. They said, get your affairs in order, there is nothing we can do.
I then sat down with my parents, and I asked my father, do you want to live? Of course he looked at me like I was an idiot, but he responded, absolutely. So I said, are you ready to listen to me now? He said, what do you want me to do? I said, take the shark cartilage. So, he agreed to do it.
My father lived two years taking the shark cartilage. And then he stopped one day, because while he could not swallow, from his incessant coughing, he would regurgitate the content of his stomach, and he did not like the then fishy taste of the cartilage, so he stopped taking it. My father was as finicky a person as I ever knew. He would not eat guaccamoli because of the color, etc
In one month a tumor popped out on his leg, and doctors surgically removed it. In one more month he was dead. The cartilage halted the grow of the tumor in his esophogus and allowed him to continue to live his life. And he did maintain a relatively normal life. He was a rabid Steeler fan, and he and his best friend went to every home game. The two of them and the wives were also rabid bridge players, playing bridge every week for roughly 35+ years of their lives together. And of course, he got to enjoy his family, for we all at the time lived within 3 miles of one another.
Bottomline, I could go through a dozen case studies of people that I encouraged to take shark cartilage. In every case, it was after there was no hope left from doctors and conventional medicine, and in every case, their lives were prolonged by years!
If you go online, you will see a number of articles that say it is all bullsh*t. It is not. Both my mother and mother-in-law benefited from the shark cartilage. Both were survivors of prior bouts of cancer, both turning up with breast cancer, again! In my mother's case, the doctor told her the chemo and radiaiton was not helping to shrink her tumor. She also had breast cancer on her cleavage.
Now my mother was worse than my father about doing only what the doctor said, so it was not until he said his therapies were not working and my sister nagged her for hours each day that she relented. She took the cartilage, and the cancer on her cleavage went away in one month. When she went to the doctor, he all but fell out of his shoes in shock, according to her. He said her tumor was shrinking, and she never mentioned she was using shark cartilage to him. She was progressing to be free of cancer when she too took a tumble down a staircase, cracked her head open and died the next day.
So, not to bore all of you to death, there is a lot to know about cartilage and other things that greatly benefit those with cancer that doctors will never tell you. Rather than bore you to death, I am happy to discuss what I know with anyone interested in talking further. And by the way, my mother-in-law was a physician, a pathologist, and her life was prolonged two years as well.
