I am asking for information from a gentleman who is not a client. . who has
difficulty speaking due to greatly increased saliva in his mouth. His
speech production is slow with distorted slushy articulation.
We got into a conversation and he stated he was diagnosed with esophageal
cancer and given 6 months to live. He choose to take a homeopathic route ..
no chemo and radiation.. and follows a strict diet of no wheat, sugar,salt,
meat or fish..
That was 18 months ago. He seems quite fit, does manual labour.
I inquired if still dentures still fit and he stated he they do (altho
he has no extra body fat) but his mouth is very painful, not his throat.
His lymph glands are sore as well.. he prefers to take no pain medication.
HIs GI specialist told him the increased phlegm is coming from the
ulcer' He stated he has a 'concave lesion" ? Barettte's esophagus? He
has difficullty sleeping at night due to ropey saliva and feeling of
I did suggest drinking more lqiquid & was going to suggest trying a baking
soda & water rinse for the ropey slaiva but he cannot take that.
I wondered if anyone has any suggestions for someone who follows the
homeopathic route. I seem to recall something about papaya or cayenne ?
