Coral Calcium

Has anyone been using Coral Calcium along with/or instead of their treatments of chemo and radiation? If so, what kind of response have you had with this mineral supplement? My brother has esophageal cancer. I have heard of Robert Barefoot's coral calcium and was wondering if it would benefit my brother in any way. He is currently undergoing aggressive chemo and radiation therapy. He is continually getting sicker and weaker.

I have been taking Coral Calcium along with chemo for stage 3c ovarian cancer. My marker went from over 1000 down to 10 after 3 treatments. I will never know for sure how much of that was the Coral Calcium but know it didn't hurt to take it and now I'm almost afraid not to take it. My Dr. agreed it would not hurt me so if I wanted to try it to go ahead. My side effects have also been minimal. Good Luck!

Hi Jean, I'm reading your post from Sept. 2002 regarding Coral Calcium. I too have Ovarian 3C and am starting chemo again (4th round since July 2000). I'm wondering what dosage you take of the CC, and how you are doing now? hopefully you are well. Thanks for your reply. Mary

Hi! I just read your message on CTCA and wanted to know which Coral Calcium you have been taking and how much, etc. I also have Ovarian Cancer. I was diagnosed in 7/00 with Stage III and have had two reoccurences since then. Right now, I'm doing well taking Topotecan, but darn, I hate losing my hair for the 3rd time! Also, are you on online with any ovarian support group? I'm thinking of starting one myself, because it's a very rare occasion when I meet someone else with OVCA and I believe that we all need each other. I look forward to hearing from you! Oby T.

Dear Vicki, I have just started using the Coral Calcium treatment. I have stage 3A non-small cell lung cancer metastasizing. I can't spell that word. Well, anyway I had to track down the cesium chloride but I found it since I need to kill tumors. I had 13 radiation treatments and could not receive chemo at the time. I drink Essiac tea with bloodroot tincture also. At this point in time I am waiting still for the cesium (it should be here today) just started for sure. I have seen some benefit from the calcium. What type of food is your brother getting? He needs to get something into him because treatment makes one malnourished due to the side effects. I can't tell others what may be right for them...all I know is that I am going to fight this with "alternate" treatment because there is much evidence that shows there is success there with large numbers of people. Hope this was helpful to you and let me know what transpires. Stephanie

Coral Calcium -- it might hurt!

Coral calcium. As an open-minded healthcare professional, I have been in contact with the company a number of times--and spoke directly to Barefoot's son-- (my patients wanted to know the truth!) regarding the effectiveness of coral calcium on cancer. I was not able to get a satisfactory answer or any research showing it's efficacy. Furthermore, I get a bit nervous about the potential hazard in taking coral calcium--mercury, PCB, or heavy metals normally found in seabeds may not be extracted. These contaminants may be very dangerous to cancer patients and others with chronic diseases. Kim Dalzell, PhD, RD, LD Director, Holistic Nutrition Services Author, Challenge Cancer and Win!

I spoke w/Fred Eichhorn who has an excellent vitamin therapy for cancer and is the originator of www.ncrf.org site re: coral calcium. He says it is 'ok' but his calcium he uses is bisglycinate which permits much higher absorbtion. My concern w/Barefoot is the hugh amount of websites he owns promoting his calcium so that is suspect to me. I never thought about the impurities it might have before. He might be legit but I am not sure if you are unable to check out the safety factor. Go into Fred's website. He is a cancer survivor and his therapy is 80% successful. He has a chat room with patients.

I was diagnosed with stage 4 ovarian cancer in Jan. and was wondering what would be the best vitamins & minerals to take. What foods should you stay away from and what is really safe to eat these days? They want me to start chemo again with either Doxal or Gemzar and I already have neuropathy, heart damage from the last taxol/carboplatin treatments. I have only been off chemo for 5 months but nodules are back in my lungs. What would be the best for me to do?

My thoughts exactly. I was taking this daily right up till for some reason I re-read the info on the bottle and noticed printed in smaller letters at the bottom of the label "essentially lead free". This concerned me and I said to myself, "hmmmm...essentially, huh". that scared me enough to worry about it and stop taking it.

Wow Vicki - my brother-in-law is using the coral calcium to make alkalized water and he is doing so much better than the doctors expected. I just finished writing someone else regarding this very thing. If you still need information please email me.
