  • Swollen lymph nodes were not present when started the treatment


  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • I've been taking Gleevec for almost 3 weeks now, and I've found myself becoming angry very easily. I've always been a very laid back person and now I find myself screaming at family members when they do something as simple as not doing something to my liking. It seems so silly. After lashing out at the person, it's like I have a complete mood swing and then begin to cry. I see it happening and I hate it.

    I've suffered from anxiety and panic attacks in the past. This is completely different though. I hope it's just my body adjusting to this medication. I do currently feel stressed and overwhelmed. I feel like something as simple as exercise could help but I'm just so tired and don't feel up to it.

    I will definitely be discussing this with my doctor at my next appointment coming up.

    Get Ph strips, check yourself should be 7 if not get Baking Soda, 1/4 tsp in water up to 4 times a day, or until balanced. Go to Amazon, get Sera- Vita "Elevate". Amino Acid complex take as instructed. Another protocol to do with all this is to get a (33oz Dasani water bottle 1-ltr, No-Salt or Low Salt in the baking isle of a store usually "aka" Potassium Chloride, Ascorbic Acid powder "aka" Vitamin C powder) Call stores before driving around to find these first. The Ascorbic Acid will be the hardest to find, most likely at health food store or pharmacy. Mix in water bottle "1/4tsp of Potassium Chloride, 1/2 tsp of Viti C powder, shake well and taste. If it basically tastes like water or with a tiny kick, good odds your craving it. If tastes nasty like salt water like it does to me, you do not need it. If need, drink two small gulps in the AM or roughly 2oz every AM until it tastes nasty. This is a Adrenal drink, this will assist your adrenal glands which may have run down during your illness. *Warning*: DO NOT take any oral's later than 12pm as you may not sleep. Prior to doing previously mentioned protocols, one extremely effective health benefit is a detox bath. Email me if you would like instructions on the detox bath, it is extremely effective.
