This is really one big experiment. In reality the most crucial experiment of my life. It would be nice to have some good instructions but that may come in a few years. Unfortunately, I don’t have a few years to wait. So I experiment on myself.
As you may or may not know, I had some new cancer growths in my lungs, that were found 3 months ago. So I decided to make a few changes in how much DRE (dandelion root extract). One of the changes that I made was how much I should take. I increased it from 4-6 oz a day to 12 oz a day. The other change is I thought that it should be taken in 2 doses. I didn’t look into that enough and I think I was wrong in that. Before, I was taking 5-6 small doses (adding up to 4-6 oz). But lately I have changes that to taking 2 larger doses (adding up to 12 oz). I now believe that that was wrong. My latest CT scan showed the cancerous nodules are growing.
I reread part of the report found here and through my interpretation, I think it should be taken in small doses throughout the day. As a matter of fact the report says, “We observed a significant decrease in the viability of both HT-29 and HCT116 (colorectal cancer cells) following the DRE treatment. This effect was both time and dose dependent” This shows the significance and dose and timing.
However, the chart on the right (if I understand it correctly) is a screenshot from the report and it is pointing out that through multiple doses there was more absorption of the DRE. This is a bit confusing as bars go down on the chart when reading it from left to right. Which indicates multiple doses. But the first bar is zero doses and is at 100%. I believe that this is showing negative numbers because it is in comparison to the control. Therefore, the lower the better.
I have emailed Doctor Pandey, who performed the study, and asked him about this. I have not heard back from him as of yet, and I don’t suspect I will, as it has now been over a month. I will try him again.
So based on this recent information and understanding that a cell can really only absorb so much at a time, it makes more sense to take multiple doses a day. And therefore, this may explain why even upon increasing my dose I still saw the cancer cells grow. My new plan is to then take the 5-6 smaller doses a day that will still end up being 12+ oz a day.
I will speak to my Medical Oncologist next week and taking into consideration his advice I will decide what to do from here.
