pattimarzano Posted December 1, 2007 Share Posted December 1, 2007 I was recently diagnosed with Squamus Cell Dysplasia. I have Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension, a rare disease affecting the blood pressure in the lungs only. There are treatments, but no cure. I have Right Heart Failure as a result. I also have Scleroderma, another rare autoimmune, connective tissue disease, again, treatment, no cure. Then I get this Lung Cancer diagnosis. I can't do another biopsy because my lung collapsed during the last one. I can't do Chemo because of the PAH and RHF, and I can't do radiation because of the existing lung damage from the Scleroderma. This left me with no options other that what I could do for myself. I found a couple of great web sites and researched hours and hours of data. I am currently on an all raw fruit and veggies, mostly juiced, almonds, 15 grain minimum bread, one slice a day. LOTS of green leafy veggies and carrots. Juicing is the only way to be able to consume the amount you need to fight this. NO refined sugar. No animal or fish. NO dairy. No caffeine and no smoking of course. I feel better than I've felt in 2 years. The weight loss is causing my heart to not have to work so hard. I don't know yet, if there is anything to this, but I have no other choice but than to heal myself, and I believe that I can do that. I am still under the care of the PH doc and the Rheumy and they both say to do whatever I need to do and they will continue to treat the other 2 illnesses as I need it. I haven't found an Alternative Physician yet, but am looking. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
