Thank you to everyone for posting your experiences and findings. The above is what I am trying based on everything I have read on this thread along with the research inspired by the reading. I’ve been on the above listed protocol for about 10 days. I will keep you updated as I progress.
Though I have started slowly I have had some of the same sensational experiences as those of you that are doing the larger more acute dosing. Always in the same places throughout my body, which leads me to believe that there is something about fisetin that paints a target on the back of senescent cells allowing for all of the accompanying proteolytic and systemic enzymes to do their work.
Here is some additional information about myself to better understand what it is I am trying to accomplish.
I am 47 years old and previously diagnosed with Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma. Supposedly there is no cure for this type of lymphoma but I am hopeful to prove that wrong. Wish me luck…8)
I am working with the assumption that disease is simply a result of aging and that there is a sweet spot between incline(youth) and decline(middle age?). Kind of like that period of time after you make your last monthly car payment and that cars first major repair bill.
What I originally thought was an allergy to gluten back in 2012 ended up being a form of lymphoma. Accurate diagnosis however didn’t happen till November 2018. My stubborn self and dislike of anything hospital was partially at play but also cutaneous t-cell lymphoma is one that goes misdiagnosed for some time with most. Having spent 7 years of my childhood in and out of the hospital having had two surgeries, countless catheterizations and a handful of intravenous pyelograms in an attempt to correct VUR(vesicoureteral reflux) left me a little twitchy when even driving by hospitals. I was one of the experimental kids that helped them determine that their new experimental procedure(1970’s) didn’t work for most.
Strangely it wasn’t my doctor that identified it, but someone I was giving a ride to(UBER) who had been diagnosed with the same thing and in treatment for many years before we met.
Fortunately for me I have a friend of the family that is an oncologist who’s specialty is lymphoma and leukemia and he was able to confirm the diagnosis. There’s just something different in the care and advice that comes from a doctor who is also a friend. Highly recommended…8)
Now here is the interesting twist. Through diet, supplementation and Dr. Google, I had been addressing what I thought was something systemic but by no means did I really think that I had cancer. I had my primary Dr. do all of my blood tests to make sure that everything internal that I couldn’t see was functioning properly and continued on my path to recovery in ignorance.
Have I made all of the right decisions for treatment along the way? I don’t know. We will see. I still am not sure I agree with the official diagnosis but I have accepted it and respect it, however I reserve my right to remain a skeptic.
Back to the diagnosis and my oncologist friend. Though he recommended that I have further tests done, by the time I had seen him many of the neoplasia(tumors) had already resolved or reduced in size significantly. In other words my skin was fixing itself and expressing all of the diseased tissues gradually over time. By no means a pleasant process but it’s not like I had anything else to do. On the other hand, no nasty scarring. Just a prolonged recovery and a lot of self care.
Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma which was originally called Mycosis fungoides was first described in 1806 by French dermatologist Jean-Louis-Marc Alibert. The name mycosis fungoides is very misleading—it loosely means “mushroom-like fungal disease”. The disease, however, is not a fungal infection but rather a type of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. It was so named because Alibert described the skin tumors of a severe case as having a mushroom-like appearance.
Which is exactly why I had no clue that it was cancer. I frankly thought I was just a dirty bird that drank way too much and ended up with a really bad fungal infection that was paying the piper.
When all this started back in September of 2017 I made some drastic lifestyle changes and dedicated myself to learning how to optimize health and existence. Along the way I have explored many different diet trends and tried many a different thing eventually arriving where I am at today almost fully recovered.
I still have a little ways to go, but I expect that the full recovery process will have taken about 42 months or 3.5 years to complete. And the best part is my body looks and feels significantly younger and I don’t think it is anything magic that I have done. Just followed some basic ideas and rules.
What if cancer, dementia, diabetes and cardio vascular issues were all simply the process of aging taking its course? I imagine that would mean that all we have to do is figure out what it means to be simply younger and go there.
That is my starting point…Simply Younger
