In no way is any of this medical advice I am only sharing my experience.
The poster is correct. There are numerous natural compounds that are effective for AN and many many other diseases. My journey began a year ago. I am a 46-year-old male, 200 lbs with no history of cancer, bloodwork is all clean as a whistle. Ordinarily, I eat organic foods, limit alcohol and sugar and work out 3X a week.
Last January 2021 I was diagnosed with a very small AN in my right ear in the auditory canal. I do know the standards of care we get are not the only way. Planet earth and all of its compounds are too amazing and diverse for that nonsense. The major issue with many of these compounds is getting dosages that are pharmacologically relevant for the condition you are treating (are you getting enough?) and BIOAVAILABILITY. "Ok I took 1000mg but it is only 5% bioavailable and I need a full 1000mg daily for it to be effective--but one bottle of 90 caps is $100 bucks and I have to take 80 caps a day" sort of problem.
My research led me to a compound called Sulforaphane--found in cruciferous vegetables like Broccoli, Cabbage, Brussel sprouts. Pretty amazing compound AND 70% bioavailable. Until just last year it was only available from one company in France that holds the patent for pure stable sulforaphane. You can get it through your diet but that's a lot of cabbage...and toilet paper. Also once you cook it loses potency. In vegetables, it is made up of two chemicals (glucoraphanin and myrosinase) that once ingested together turn into the compound sulforaphane. The supplement, however, bypasses all the hassle and it is in the pure form already. Once taken it enters the bloodstream and passes the blood-brain barrier.
I found the company in the US and reached out to their CEO so I could get a discount and order larger quantities. For a period of one year, I took roughly 60mg (70% bioavailable + 10mg per capsule= 8 caps per day) this is what I read on PubMed and after some math figured this would be the proper dose. After eating a full meal I would take the entire dose (it upsets the stomach if empty). Another feature of this amazing compound is my blood pressure is spot on 110/60 (was prehypertension). I smoked (quit) for 25 years and drank alcohol moderately up until a few years ago (lifestyle change/new business).
1 year later:
I am happy to report I received my results today: As it reads: "No abnormal enhancement or mass is noted in either internal auditory canal.
The tumor has left the building, I have zero personal clinical data-no fancy charts but beyond not holding a cell phone to my head anymore this is the only change in lifestyle. I DID start taking another compound recently, HONOKIOL, which is only 5% bioavailable (remember that whole 80 caps a day thing) and has amazing potential against cancers and tumors. I take 6 caps a day for about the last two months. Not sure if it had any effect.
Best to all.
