One clinic in Turkey has been combining standard of care chemo with the ketogenic diet, hyperthermia, hyperbaric oxygen and certain drugs that target energy metabolism (2-deoxyglucose and dichloroacetate). In this paper they used it in patients with pancreatic cancer http://pancreas.imedpub.com/longterm-outcomes-of-the-treatme The expected median survival time for those on a Gemcitabine based regime is ~6.2 months. For FOLFIRINOX it's ~11.1 months. Using this approach, the median survival was 20 months and 54% of the patients were still alive when the paper came out (some are still on the treatment).

We have been supporting a number of pancreatic cancer patients over the last year that used a treatment in the Philippines,so far all are still alive. Killing it is as see possible. 
One of the problems is digestion as the pancreas slows down its functioning as the cancer is still active there as well when the cancer is dead and the body is trying to cleanse itself of the dead tissue. 
One very gentle approach is to add a 1/2 to a teaspoon of konjac root before his lunch and dinner. It gently absorbs the bad stuff in the intestines and allows for better digestion as well as helping to cleanse gently so he will better absorb nutrients. 
Without knowing what treatments he is using presently it is hard for any more detailed help. You can always pm me and more info may help him.

I just read a study that shows mistletoe extract can be effective in the treatment of pancreatic cancer. 

We experienced it saving my husband's life over two years ago but he has Stage IV Colon Cancer, not pancreatic cancer. We used cannabis oil as well. 

We did try chemo, but it was horrible for my husband who is young, but has other health issues (like epilepsy), so he couldn't tolerate it. This made the choice to try cannabis and mistletoe an easy one.

They have worked for Scott so far, but we are hitting bumps from taking a treatment break. So we are back on the treatment and already seeing positive results. 

We shall see!

My question is actually about the effect mistletoe had on your husbands colon cancer ..my sister has Cancer and New Zealand and they have basically written her off she still on chemo but they have her on palletive care which isn’t good enough for me I am very interested to know more about the mistletoe can I buy it for her here in the states is it expensive and to what degree does it help your husband we say it saved his life how do you mean

While you may support the use of conventional treatments and you may continue to post a false accusation posting that has been fully investigated, it is your choice.  
Our continued focus on helping people that are in dire need is well appreciated by the many we offer our services to. Though the false statements claim we make money and charge, those we have helped through situations will concur we do it at no charge at all.  
Continue supporting what makes you happy.

I was wondering if anyone had positive experience with any specific alternative treatment or dietary supplement,  particularly one that worked well against pancreatic cancer?

A couple weeks ago, my 88 year old dad was diagnosed with stage 3 inoperable pancreatic cancer (adenocarcinoma), with a tumor wrapped around ciliac artery.   We talked to our oncologist and got a second opinion at Stanford.   The treatment options offered were either chemo only (gemzar + abraxin) or chemo plus radiation(Xeloda + Radiation).

Although my dad is relatively healthy, at his age, we don't really think he can take much chemo.  He doesn't want chemo either.   We are then left with  1) radiation  2) alternative/dietary treatment 3) potentially nanoknife or all 3 above.

I started exploring alternative treatements and ... frankly ... was overwhelmed with information.    After reading various books, blogs, and websites,  I'm having a hard time sieving out what works vs what doesn't.

Things I've heard commonly mentioned so far include things like Budwig diet (with or without Trican), wheat grass juice, bitter melon juice, Salvestrols, ...   don't know if any of these work well against pancreatic cancer.

I figure we don't have much time.  If folks who had personally tried stuff (either family member or themselves) can post their experience on what worked and what didn't for pancreatic cancer, it'll help us tremendously.   Thanks a ton!!

PS. I posted this question in both "Alternative Treatment" and "Pancreatic Cancer" section.  Please excuse the redundency; figure I'll get more hits that way.

Hi ryliu I know what you mean there a lot of alternative information out there. And  except for what Im on now I have tryed  most of them.  But with limited success.  In 2007 I found out I have stage 4 (adenocarcinoma) prostate cancer It was in my lower back my ribs and in my lower jaw I was written off in 2007.  But as I said over the years since then.  I try a lot of things.  But I found the best combination was  Apricot pits and encapsulated vitamin C these two have help me get my cancer under control I don't know what Damage the pancreatic cancer has done to him. in side.  But I knoe these two work this has help me get my life back again. from night with out sleep to waking up feeling in no pain and feeling  rested if you want to know more let me know

God bless you and your dad

Please, tell me where and how you got apricot pits, because I thought they were banned in the USA. Also, wasn't there a danger of arsenic poisoning from the seeds? Lastly, where is "encapsulated ViAMIN C available. I have prostate cancer but my stomach and back aches are making me look4 information on this too. THANK YOU, Ray

Laetrile was tested by the U.S. NCI and shown not to work [1]. Back in 2015 a systematic review by Cochrane found: ''The claims that laetrile or amygdalin have beneficial effects for cancer patients are not currently supported by sound clinical data. There is a considerable risk of serious adverse effects from cyanide poisoning after laetrile or amygdalin, especially after oral ingestion. The risk–benefit balance of laetrile or amygdalin as a treatment for cancer is therefore unambiguously negative.'' [2]

Transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE), is a technique that delivers chemotherapy to the tumor via a catheter threaded to the blood vessel that's feeding it.

This technique can been further refined with drug-eluting beads loaded with drugs that can be delivered more efficiently to the tumor. Once the tumor is fully surrounded by the microbeads, their payload can be released for up to three weeks.

When (DEB-)TACE works as intended, the tumour slowly shrinks and dies. It can sometimes be safely removed.

From this paper: ''Four weeks following the end of the treatment, 78.26% of patients (112 were treated) showed stable disease and 11.59% showed partial response. The median survival time was 19 months and for the stable disease group, 26 months.'' [1]. Transcatheter arterial radioembolization is another option.
