My friend of 80 years has recently had a tumour removed from his lung - a fairly simple operation here in France. It's a one-off removal of a lump and there is no other cancer involved. He's always been extremely fit and very slim.

That was 3 weeks ago and he was discharged after only 6 days, feeling fine and glad to get home.

He is now very low, suffering from extreme nausea and vertigo.

The doc has prescribed pills for nausea and pills for dizziness but he's been in bed for 2 days now and hardly eaten anything and now refuses to take any mediation.

He's got a brain scan on Monday (2 days from now), but I'm worried that he has stopped eating because of the nausea and can no longer walk the length of my room because of dizziness.

I'm going to try to get something like Complan (if it exists in France) but what can possibly be giving him this awful sickness feeling. He must eat! He is taking no other medication other than Amlor for blood pressure.

  • He might be developing "allergies", in other words, over reacting to the environment- this happens to many people after operations; their nervous system goes out of whack. Sometimes antibiotics given after the operation can trigger this condition.Also vaccines can do this.My best advice- take him to a NAET specialists (Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Techinique). They are all over Europe. (NAET.COM)Make sure he is taking the best quality vitamin/mineral he can find and Probiotics, because the antibiotics are most likely affecting his digestive system (killing the good intestinal flora).He should not try to eat too bland- but he must try to eat.His gut feeling is telling him he is intoxicated. He is really reacting to stuff.If possible, find a Reiki person to assist him at least twice every week.Best,

  • Hi there and thanks for your response, Eatafruit, He did have a course of an anti-coagulant - something to stop the blood clotting, for 7 days after the op. I can't get into the NAET site at the mo - some problem I suppose. You suggest a good quality vit/mineral supplement. I know your medications in US are different from here but what do I look for please? Also Probiotics - looked this up on Google - is this just something like a yoghurt?

Also Probiotics - looked this up on Google - is this just something like a yoghurt?To give you a guide of what vitamin/supplement type he must consume, please check this links:probioticshttp://www.beyondhealth.com/sf/Digesta%20Guard%20Forte%20plus%20FOS-prod38.aspxvitamins/mineralshttp://www.beyondhealth.com/sf/Multi%20Vit-Mineral%20Formula-prod195.aspxIt is very important that he takes this type of supplements as the operation and all medications really debilitate his immune system. He does not want to fall for an infection which could easily turn fatal.Make sure he does not eat cheese or milk- aspartame or sugars. It can lower his defenses. Specially cheese is moldy by nature- if he is sensitive to antibiotics he might react to mold.Make sure his place is not moldy either. His air quality at home must be the best. He should keep his room clear from magazines, newspaper and heavy detergents.Also, he should try some green tea, lots of water, and dandelion root tea.If you can't find a vitamin like this one- at least get a good Vitamin C and a good Vitamin E. It is vital!Keep that immune system upLove and Light,Maribel.

  • As to this Reiki, have looked at the website and have enrolled for a free session tomorrow (Sunday at 11 - 11.30) but it does not say what I have to do. Do I need to connect to the site? Do I just sit in a chair and wait for something to happen? Seems very strange to me.

What you want is a person who is attuned in Reiki Energy healing. This person needs to come over and perform some healing on your friend for 30 to 40 minutes at a time.The person must have a certificate- and perhaps a reference; you want to make sure the Reiki person does not try to prescribe anything or diagnose as that is not what Reiki does. The Reiki person will only put the hands on or near the patient- that's it.It is not a massage therapist nor a chiropractor. If you have difficulty finding a good in person Reiki practicioner or clinic- think about a Doctor of Oriental Medicine (Acupuncturist)- they really understand the lungs.http://www.angelfire.com/az/SpiritMatters/contents.htmlhttp://www.yinyanghouse.com/Best.

  • Anndim,I am confused - you mentioned in your original post that there was "no other cancer involved". Do you mean to say that the lump in his lung was cancerous? If that is so, what did the doctors recommend for treatment? Was his diagnosis cancer? Please buy some fresh ginger and thinly slice this to make a tea - steep a couple slices in boiled water for about 10 minutes. This is very helpful for nausea, and may help his digestion. Also, please make a rice congee (porridge) by doing the following: 1 cup short grain brown rice (organic if possible) to 5 cups pure spring water. Bring this to a boil, then simmer slowly for at least 3-5 hours...this is very very fortifying and helps the Spleen and aids digestion. I am afraid if your friend has lost weight and has no appetite he may be in an advanced stage of disease. You could perhaps try high doses of vitamin C (EmergenC is a great product you should be able to find - it is a fizzy powder that has 1000mg of C in the form of mineral ascorbates). Often this is very helpful if taken 4-8,000 mg a day (just take until diarrhea develops, then lower that dose). Best wishesDOM
