I went down to London yesterday to see Dr Callebout. I read about how he had helped Jane McLelland, the author of "How to starve cancer". The reason why I chose him was because if he could help a stage 4 cancer patient reach remission, then I knew I had to see him too. I want to get to that point too.
I had a long list of questions to ask Dr Callebout about whether I should start taking certain supplements or additional off-label drugs, green tea and so on. He said some were a good idea, such as chloroquine, dipyridamole, and propranolol, but that others were not, such as cimetidine and milk thistle.
For example, rather than drinking any old green tea, he mentioned that matcha green tea powder was better. He said Earl Grey tea is good. I don’t normally drink it, but I’m game. He tailored everything he said to my particular diagnosis, so obviously that is going to be different for everyone on here, as we do not all have the exact same diagnosis. Our background and health history is different too. He made a lot of other recommendations too, which he will write back to me about, as I found some of what he was saying very technical and not so easy to understand. I took notes, but I think once I have the letter in my hand with his recommendations, I will find it easier to follow his protocol.
He asked about different functions (bowel movements, vaginal issues, thyroid function etc) and asked for me to get my iodine levels checked. He believes in the COC protocol, and said there is evidence of it in helping double survival times, and he made some dietary recommendations such as reducing glutamine (avoiding asparagus, cutting back on meat, avoiding dairy and keeping the fermented foods).
Oh, and when I mentioned the shingles vaccine (I still haven’t had it!) he said to check it doesn’t contain aluminium in it.
Dr Callebout plans to write to my oncologist, so I shall be interested to hear back from her too.
