I am a survivor and cancer coach for a blood cancer called multiple myeloma. While Nimbolide shows efficacy as PCa therapy my approach would be to include it with those evidence-based PCa therapies.
Further, your therapy approach should depend on your, and your friends, stage at diagnosis, PSA progression, and Gleason scores, core biopsy if any.
Walgreens website…type in Neem. Can’t hurt to take. Been taking it for two years now and my numbers have been goodReply
Can you tell me what you were diagnosed with? Just curious. Thanks.
My sister was just diagnosed a couple weeks ago with early stage pancreatic. Steel stent has been placed in the bile duct. Aggressive
chemo starts next week. Whipple surgery to remove the head of the
pancreas for early September. She’s physically strong, good support
network, engaged and living with her fiancé. She’s 49 with a 12 yr.
old. I’ve looked at the copper reduction in the past, many years ago
for a friend. If we have a successful whipple procedure combined
with angiogenesis we might have a winner here. It’s logical, makes
sense to me. What are you’re thoughts?
A successful Whipple procedure takes your sister from a less than 5% five year survival rate to about a 25% five year survival rate. If your sister is relatively young and in good health then her statistics improve even more.
While a five-fold increase in 5 year survival rate is terrific you may want to consider therapies shown to enhance the “aggressive” chemotherapy as well as non-conventional (not FDA approved) non-toxic yet evidence-based therapies.
The sooner your sister begins both integrative and non-conventional therapies the better off she will be.
I was diagnosed with stage 3 pancreatic cancer 12/24/2014. Needless to say, I was devastated. I self taught myself as to what I was confronting and was not happy to learn the percentage factor of living I had. Being the person I am, I tenaciously address my problem by trying everything available. Some made sense and others didn’t. I was told that I was not a canidate for surgery. The tumor wrapped it’s self around the artery. I was told by doctors that it might be possible to shrink the tumor with chemo and radiation. I found that not to be the case. The chemo had my tumor marker number CA19.9 decline from 2100 to 160. At that time my body couldn’t take the effect of the chemo anymore, so I chose to undergo a procedure called NanoKnife. With this procedure the doctor blasts the tumor with 3000 volts of electricity to create nano holes in the tumor to start the death of the tumor. Needless to say, all it did for me was that the tumor got inflamed and my numbers started to rise again. I needed to have a stent put in the duct. Once that was done my bilirubin numbers went back to normal. The CA19.9 number kept rising so I start a stronger dose of chemo which cause havoc to my body. The outcome was that my CA19.9 number declined to 60 something when my body couldn’t take anymore. Oh, I do have to mention that I lost a lot of weight during all this and if it wasn’t for a certain doctor, I would of died from malnutrition. I was told that I needed to take an enzymne called Creon for digestion. The amount is based on your body weight. After a few weeks of rest from the intravenous I did continue with oral chemo called Zeloda. Next I chose to do Proton Therapy plus three tabs of Zeloda in the morning and three at dinner. Finally my numbers got to whwere I wanted them. The so called 35 number was achieved and I stopped the oral chemo. My oncologist suggested that I continue a daily regiment of 1 tab of Zeloda in the morning and 1 tab at dinner but I chose not to take any of the poison anymore and do the holistic route. I have been doing certain protocols all along… such as drinking water with a high PH. Baking soda protocols, immune supplements, wormwood for awhile and then a tree leaf extract called Nimbolide. A study out of the University of Texas found that the leaf from the Neem tree can specifically kill cancer cells with out adverse effects to the body or normal body cells. After doing wormwood for four month I stopped with the wormwood and started with Nimbolide at the beginning of the fourth month. I have been taking it for two months now and my CA19.9 number is going down and is now at 30.1. I am going to continue taking it and see how low it will go. So far I feel good despite the numbness in my feet that was caused by the chemo. I just want to let anyone know the options one has when such news as pancreatic is a reality to them. I don’t want people that have pancreatic cancer to give up and to know that they need to be proactive and insist to know your number every week. That was the only guide I had to know when to move on to the next procedure. I feel that Proton Therapy with Zeloda did the trick and that the wormwood and the continued protocol of Nimbolide is my salvation. Belief in God is without saying!!!Reply
Hello david My mother is diagnosed with pancreatic cancer mets to liver and little lung. We are not using any chemio just praying and diet….. any help what I do????Reply
Hi Robert, can I ask where you were able to get Nimbolide from please? I’ve had no luck finding it & would love to give it a try.
Walgreens website…type in Neem in the vitamin supplement section. A bottle of 475mg will come up. I take 1 at breakfast, 1 at lunch and 1at dinner. Been taking it for two years now and I keep an eye on my Ca19. #’s every three weeks.Reply
Hi David, I’ve just been diagnosed with stage 3, pancreatic cancer – inoperable. I’ll have my second chemo session on Tuesday. They say they’re trying to shrink the tumour to make it operable. Unfortunately, my doctors are anti natural therapies – even in conjunction with conventional treatment. Their attitude has been awfully stifling and frustrating, given the shockingly poor outcomes for their patients. I’m determined to do what I can, to get better, or at the very least, prolong my life. I’m looking at trying curcumin and B17 (apricot seeds) for a start. What do you recommend (including possible dosages)? Many thanks, Elizabeth.Reply
I am sorry to read that you have been diagnosed with inoperable pancreatic cancer. While I applaud your efforts to introduce integrative thinking to your oncologists, I am also sorry that they are not cooperating with you.
I will be direct with you. The 5 year survival rate of stage 3 pancreatic cancer is less than 5% according the ACS. If it were me I would not listen to conventional oncology. To be honest, I had a VERY difficult time disagreeing with my oncologist for the first several years of my own cancer experiences. But I have learned a lot since then.
Be that as it may, I agree that your long term solution is to surgically remove your tumor. To get there however I would utilize every anti-angiogenic therapy I could find. Yes, curcumin is a good start. As for doses, it is really up to you. Being in complete remission I only take 400 mg of curcumin daily. Of those people with my cancer, multiple myeloma, I read about people taking up to 8 GRAMS a day. 1000 mg = 1 gram. I have no experience with B17.
If the chemotherapy you referred to is either 5-fluorouracil (5-FU). capecitabine/gemcitabine I would take all those evidenced based integrative therapies that I could find in order to enhance those chemotherapies. I understand that a pancreatic tumor has a degree of blood vessel growth that inhibit surgery. Therefore I wouldn’t limit my therapy to integrative therapies. I would include anti-angiogenic nutrition and anti-cancer lifestyle therapies as well.
None of the above is directed at you in any way Elizabeth. I am simply airing my frustration with conventional oncology when there is little that they can offer to help the cancer patent.
I am both a long-term cancer survivor and a cancer coach. I understand completely if you feel you must follow your oncologists instructions. However if you would like to add integrative therapies, anti-angiogenic nutrition and anti-cancer lifestyle therapies I can provide evidence-based research and specifics to you.
Let me know if you are interested in cancer coaching. Good luck and hang in there,
How do you go about getting the Nimbolide extract for treatment of pancreatic cancer? ?Reply
Several things. I have linked an amazon.com page that lists several neem products. While all the products are relatively inexpensive I must point out that Nimbolide/Neem therapy for pancreatic cancer is early and none of the products on the amazon page have been tested for purity, efficacy, etc.
Let me be clear. If I had pancreatic cancer I would probably try Neem. But I would also learn about and pursue other evidence-based anti-angiogenic therapies including supplementation and nutrition. I know of several pancreatic cancer therapies and I can provide research and experience for you.
While I agree that conventional oncology offers little hope for pancreatic cancer I would find out if you have any surgical options. Surgery is the only curative therapy that I know of for pancreatic cancer.
Let me know if you have any questions.

Myself, and two old friends, all have varying levels of prostrate cancer. I have been reading about how nimbolide may also work for prostrate cancer. Any thoughts on that? And, can you recommend one nimbolide product over the others?
Thanks for being such a help fpr everyone,
