Laura – I was scared by Dr. Cervantes of the Gerson clinic. On Tuesday he looked at my LDH blood levels and they were even higher than last time. The LDH is a cancer marker and he is worried something is happening that needs to be investigated. So he wants me to get a full body Pet Scan with radiated dye shot in to my arm. Before I do this, I want to get my blood work redone to see if there was a mistake. My malignant melanoma is a very fast moving cancer. It might have spread as I’ve only been doing the Gerson therapy for 3 and 1/2 months. Maybe the healing takes a while to kick in.

I have to be strong during this difficult time, but it is hard. Another way of looking at this situation is that my tumors are breaking up and releasing a lot of tissue and toxins and that could be creating the high LDH and causing some liver pain. Another healer on my support team says I shouldn’t be worried because this is what is happening. I certainly hope so. All the love and support from friends and family this week has meant a lot to me and keeps me strong.

    I am thinking of you Laura and sending you lots of healing vibrations! Hang in there and yes, get another blood test to make sure you really need the scan. Love you, elaine


  7. Sending you healing light Laura. My LDH has been increasing progressively over the last 6 months. Even though I was in complete remission. My oncologist wasn’t too worried about them – he’s booked me in for more tests in February. My GP who works with cancer patients thinks it might be tumour breakdown and detoxing. On its own LDH doesn’t seem to mean a lot. Be well. Be happy. Jane
