Abstract: On the eve of the Chinese New Year (CNY, 2011) Sujo ate chicken curry and fish steamed with preserved, salted beans. Two days later, he suffered severe pains. The pains persisted every day. Sujo took the painkiller, Tramadol but the medication did not relieve his pains. One treatment with bio-frequency enabled him to sleep and his pains were almost gone.

Pain is one of the most common problems faced by cancer patients. Dr. Patrick Dixon (1) wrote: As a doctor who has cared for the dying I have often been asked to kill people. One reason is that the fear of pain is usually greater than the fear of death itself. All of us have relatives or friends who have died of cancer, and many of us have traumatic memories of a painful deterioration. What is scandalous is that in almost every case their suffering was largely preventable and unnecessary, inflicted not by the disease but by shocking medical ignorance, arrogance, complacency and pride.
Doctors treat pains with pain killing medications. Some drugs are effective on patients but some drugs are not effective. But all of them produce side effects. The alternative practitioners resorted to non-drug modalities such as: relaxation technique, meditation, biofeedback, hypnotherapy, massage, acupuncture, and electrical stimulation (2,3).
At CA Care we manage cancer pains using herbs and bio-frequency therapy. Bio-frequency is generated by a Programmable Blaster (imported from the United States). The appropriate set of frequencies used is as recommended in the Electroherbalism (4) .
Sujo (not real name) is a 58-year-old male from Indonesia. Sometime in August 2010, he complained of breathlessness when climbing the stairs. A check up with a GP in Medan indicated fluid in his lungs. Sujo came to a private hospital in Penang in October 2010. A CT scan ( Figure 1) indicated gross left pleural effusion associated with severe lung collapse. There was lytic lesion at T4 vertebral body associated with erosion. His liver showed fatty infiltration.

Two liters of fluid were tapped out of his lung. A pleural biopsy showed a papillary, gland forming malignant neoplasm. According to the HPE report, a possible diagnosis includes: Papillary adenocarcinoma of pleural origin – malignant mesothelioma; or metastatic adenocarcinoma from a primary in the bronchus/lung.
Sujo went to an oncologist at the cancer hospital for a second opinion. His blood test on 21 October 2010 showed CEA = 85.86 and CA19.9 = 78.6 (Table 1).

Sujo was asked to undergo chemotherapy, which he promptly rejected. Instead, on 22 October 2010, Sujo came to seek our help. He had no symptoms and was prescribed Capsule A, Lung 1 Tea Lung 2 Tea, Bone Tea and C-Tea (proprietary herbs of Teo Herbal). After taking these herbs, Suja came back to see us twice and reported that his health had improved. He was able to eat, sleep and walk some distance without any problem. His breathlessness had resolved. His bowels movements were good. A blood test done on 24 February 2011 showed decrease of his CEA and CA 19.9 by 30 percent and 24 percent, respectively (Table 1).
Case Report: Pain After Chinese New Year Dinner
On 13 February 2011 Sujo and his wife came back to see us in Penang. They told us that on the eve of the Chinese New Year (CNY, 2011) Sujo took chicken curry (only the gravy not the chicken). Besides that he also ate fish steamed with preserved, salted beans (known in Chinese as “tau chiau”). Two days later, on the morning of the second day of CNY, he suffered severe pains. Sujo said: “I am very tolerant to pain. But this pain was so severe that I cried. I have never cried before in my life.” It was a “pulling pain” and he was not able to lie down. He had to sit upright and the pain lasted from 8 to 9 p.m. until 3 a.m. Then he would fall asleep for about 2 hours. The pains persisted every day. Sujo took the painkiller, Tramadol 50 mg – once or twice a day. But the medication did not relieve his pains.
Sujo confirmed that before this dinner, he did not have any pain at all. The pains only came after the dinner. But when Sujo came to see us on 13 February 2010 he presented with severe pains in the back and shoulder blade. He had partially lost his voice. Since the past eight days or so, he was not able to sleep.
Part 1: Pain and Bad Food
Seeing Sujo’s condition, we put him on the bio-frequency therapy immediately. Table 2 below documented his response to the therapy.

Part 2: Pain Relieved After e-Therapy
For most people, an auspicious day (may it be Christmas, Valentine, Thanksgiving, or whatever) generally calls for a celebrative feast. And very often cancer patients find it a good excuse to indulge in the food that they like. Of course, most of them could not get away from such folly after that. Last year, KM – who had colon-liver cancer and had survived for three years, decided to celebrate the 2010 Chinese New Year in style. He ate fried chicken, etc. Almost immediately he landed in the hospital with severe pains, He died after that. Now we have Sujo who did about the same thing like KM. His wife said: “I thought it is okay to eat such food since it is Chinese New Year!” Unfortunately, cancer does not understand Chinese culture!
Some people may wish to dispute that the pains had nothing to do with the dinner! Of course there is no statistical or scientific proof to substantiate such connection. But common sense and our fourteen years of experience dealing with cancer patients tell us so – eating “wrong” foods can cause pains (5).
In Sujo’s case, it is clear that for the past four months he was leading a pain-and-problem-free life. But on the second day of the Chinese New Year his life turned “bad” – how could that be? He must have done something different or wrong. That was the question we posed to him and his wife.
His pains did not go away after the “bad” dinner, and lasted for about eight days. Tramadol could not help him. When he came to CA Care on 13 February 2011 he was still in pain. But the next morning, 14 February 2011, the pain almost disappeared and on the night on 13 February he was able to sleep after the bio-frequency therapy. Ask this question: Could the pains just appear and disappear without any reason? Common sense tells us that something must have happened to trigger the event. In the first instance he ate bad food – hence the pain. In the second instance, he was on the bio-frequency therapy for 34 minutes and the pains almost disappeared!
When Sujo and his wife came to see us we told them to expect the problem to resolve by about a week. So they should be prepared to stay that long in Penang. Based on experience, we were rather confident that the pain would go away after undergoing the bio-frequency therapy.
The next morning, we were glad to be able to tell Sujo and his wife that they were really blessed! The bio-frequency therapy was effective for his pains and also for his loss of voice. Most important Sujo was able to sleep. After three days, we were very happy to be able to tell Sujo and his wife that they could go home to Medan! About two weeks after his return to Medan, Sujo’s wife called to say that Sujo is still doing fine with no pains. He is able to ride his motorcycle.
The bio-frequency therapy did not cause any adverse side effect. Apart from the initial cost of buying the Programmable Blaster, the cost of running the frequency generator is negligible. So at CA Care, our patients receive this therapy free-of-charge.
