My motive for creating this database: In July of 2016 a loved one was diagnosed with stage 3, grade 1 breast cancer. At that time, neoadjuvant therapy was recommended to try and shrink the tumor. She has now undergone two cycles of chemotherapy with different sets of drugs.
After her first ineffective chemotherapy session, a friend from work recommended trying essiac tea. Her latest CT scan has shown some tumor shrinkage. It is unknowable if this is due to the essiac tea, the latest chemotherapy, or a combination of both.
At present, there are very few valid clinical studies being done on alternative cancer treatments. Why? Does conventional medicine have a vested interest (millions of dollars?) in the current cancer procedures and drugs being used? Are governments (perhaps worried about swindlers preying on the vulnerable?) taking an active role in discouraging the use of alternative treatments? I hope that if enough people fill out this form and submit it to the database, an eminent and qualified research organization will take an interest.
