Hippocrates the father of modern medicine is reported to have said: “Give me a fever and I can cure any disease.” – I think he is not wrong.
Something curious has happened during my second FOLFIRI cycle. Every evening for the last 8 days, I have had low grade fever in the 37.3 to 37.5 degrees Celsius range. I had fever one day during my first Folfox treatment months ago, but nothing like this.
Fever can be a sign of increasing cancer cell apoptosis, or the immune system being stirred into action, both of which would be a very good thing. The question is what caused the fever in the first place?
During The first Folfiri cycle I had no fever, and unfortunately I introduced 3 new adjuvant treatments and any one or folfiri could be responsible. Coinciding with the second Folfiri cycle I started:
1. high dose vitamin C IV therapy
2. taking MAF 878 pro biotic yogurt daily
3. weekly GCMAF injections
I am hoping the fever continues, and I am looking forward to my next blood test results. In the meantime I am still continuing with my daily whole body hyperthermia to get my temperature even higher for at least an hour each day.
