A very close friend of mine has colon cancer and it’s been in the 4th stage for 4 years.
After 2 years oc chemo, she decided to look at alternative treatments. The chemo did nothing but destroy her immune and digestive system.’
My friend is exterme pain but will not take durgs such as Dilaudid. Her nutritionist says the medication willl harm her liver.
Opium was suggested and so I got her 5 grams from a vendor here that looks legit. Great feedback and all.
Is there any reason why she would not feel 1/4 gram eaten? I have a feeling the vendor is legit. Could it be because her digestive system is working at around 1/3 of what it should be?
There’s more to this and I’ll get into more detail later.
The main active compounds in opium are morphine and codeine. Other opiates and substances can be present (tebaine, papaverine, noscapine…) but their activity is less important.
In general, opium contains a 10-15% of morphine althougfh there are important differences depending on the plant, extraction method and conditions of conservation.
Morphine or codeine can be very useful in management of some cancer symptoms, but they have no efficacy in the evolution (curation) of the disease. Opiates cause constipation, that can be a serious adverse effect in some colorrectal cancers
The lack of efficacy can be related to the purity of the opium or tolerance issues if he has been using other opiates previously. Opium is not absorpted in colon, so it is unlikely that malfunction of digestive system is the cause.
There is no chemical difference between morphine obtained from opium or morphine in pills. Morphine pills have the advantage that concentration of the product is garantized.
Anyway, I insist that opiates can help in some cancer symptoms but they no cure any cancer.
