I forgot to mention in yesterdays blog about the interview and discussion on the The One Show this week regarding GcMAF.
I was shocked as I was making dinner earlier this week when I heard a reporter discussing GcMAF on National TV. I would always hope there is a fair impartial view on such things but sadly in this case there was not.
She slated GcMAF by stating there is no scientific evidence that it works, that their lab has been shut down as some of the vials of GcMAF showed not to be suitable for human consumption.
Then she interviewed a support group who use GcMAF followed by the MD, David Noakes.
It is no secret that I am unsure about GcMAF in some ways mainly their manner in telling one that if you do not administer GcMAF in every single way that they recommend then one will not survive canSer.
I went to have a week’s treatment March last year. I didn’t find it hugely professional but on the other side I think it did help with hindering the growth of my current tumours. I came home and continued using it by injecting it as well as inhaling it for about three months. The reason for stopping was mainly due to starting immunotherapy with Prof Dalgliesh and also having radiofrequency ablation.
At that point I did decide to start using the Bravo probiotics which contains GcMAF, which I still use daily now. My main reason is to strengthen the immunity in my gut.
I felt saddened at the interviews. The interviewer wasn’t a scientist or a doctor but she was very aggressive towards everyone she spoke to. We all know there are two sides to every story.
There may not be scientific evidence that has been run by the UK government or NHS as yet, but there are scientific papers that the doctors who work with GcMAF have undertaken and published. They have also been present at many symposiums and they have grown dramatically, even since I went last year.
This doesn’t mean it is a ‘miracle cure’ that they profess it to be but as one lady in the support group mentioned, ‘When you have been told that you have terminal canSer then any option is better than none.
I didn’t experience any side effects and felt fine throughout. My gripe with them was how unprofessional they were as company and I felt they were very flaky. The clinic I went to was a stately home and very odd. Others I met there were thrilled with the environment and the people running it. So each to their own.
I took an instant dislike to David Noakes who I first encountered on email. He was obnoxious and very unlikeable. I believed he didn’t want to help people, he wanted to make money. I then met him on my last day at the clinic when he was just as obnoxious and self centred.
Not only that, after I returned I emailed GcMAF (by the way, there was only one email address to contact them on and you never knew who would reply)as they had asked me to basically, write a testimonial, so I took the opportunity to give them an honest synopsis of my week and how I felt. Of course this didn’t go down very well and David Noakes replied telling me in a nutshell, that I had only done 20% of the treatment plan they recommended and that it was my fault if I failed.
I remember my late friend Leanne, who called them to get more information and she happened to speak to David Noakes who guaranteed her a 100% success if she used GcMAF. No one can say that?! This was my biggest problem with them, is that they let someone like him front the company and make spurious claims!
I think there is something good about GcMAF otherwise I wouldn’t have used it nor still use the probiotics. But I do feel very sad that it has been slated on national TV and they weren’t given a chance. However, maybe this is what they needed to shake them up and become more professional.
I have checked online and it seems the US did a clinical trial last year using GcMAF.
I have also checked GcMAF’s website and it is now not possible to purchase the product from them directly.
What are your thoughts and views on GcMAF?
