Hi David: Thanks for your response concerning my Lung Cancer (but very small at this stage) and a therapy called pencil proton therapy.
I believe my lung cancer has metastasized to my brain. The brain tumor suddenly is growing rapidly and I have the symptoms below:
So I signed up for Sept. to undergo 28 separate daily treatments with Pencil Proton Therapy for my brain tumor. I will receive a total of 50 Grays after all the treatments are completed. To my knowledge this is the safest radiation out there, the machine can cost as much as $80,000,000.00 Dollars so there are very few Proton Machines in the United States.
I must travel 800 miles to reach the nearest to me that using the Pencil Proton Therapy with Gantry.
I refused surgery because of my advanced age of 72 and with other health issues I didn’t think I could make through the 10 to 12 hour surgery, with high risk of being paralyzed in the face for life.
On the other hand what will this do to my Lung Tumor and other vital organs having 50 Grays of Radiation.
I heard Boswellia can decrease the size of the tumor because it fights inflammation.
Question being, should I add
every day between the procedure and during the procedure or wait until after the procedure?
I would like you to comment and coach me.
Thanking you in advance, Sincerely, Jack
“The use of some agents as radioprotectors has been evaluated for protection against normal tissue toxicity following exposure to ionizing radiation. Resveratrol, a natural flavonoid, with antioxidant and anti-inflamma- tory properties has attracted research interests for its radioprotective potential.
This study systematically evaluates existing studies to examine the radioprotective effectiveness of resveratrol. A literature search of the electronic databases, including PubMed, Scopus, and Embase was conducted to retrieve articles investi- gating the protective effect of resveratrol against ionizing radiation-induced damage to normal tissues.
The search timeframe ranged from the inception of each database to January 2020. From an initial search of 231 articles, and after the removal of duplicates as well as applying the predetermined inclusion and exclusion criteria, 33 articles were finally included for this systematic review.
Results showed promising protective effect of resveratrol against ionizing radiation-induced damage to normal tissues. Furthermore, no adverse effect was observed after administering resveratrol. Resveratrol showed the potential to protect against ionizing radiation-induced damage to normal tissue cells via notable mechanisms, including anti-apoptotic and anti-inflammatory effects.
However, further studies on the efficacy of clinical translation of resveratrol would open up more insights, while other gray areas such as the optimal radioprotective dosage of resveratrol requires further investigation. Overall, resveratrol is a potential double-edged sword in cancer therapy while protecting healthy tissues…”
“More than 11 million people living in the U.S. today have been diagnosed with cancer, and about half of them have received radiation therapy (radiotherapy). While improved radiotherapy techniques have increased treatment precision and reduced side effects caused by radiotherapy, the high doses of radiation used to kill cancer cells may still cause long-term damage to nearby healthy cells in some patients. By helping the blood carry more oxygen to affected areas, hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) has been proven effective for these patients…”
