Dr Yamamoto states GcMAF does not have side effects. Our experiences agree: GcMAF has shown no side effects of its own. That's not surprising - your body expects to have it.
But your rebuilt immune system may in some cases give you minor side effects, but larger side effects with late stages of cancer, and occasionally severe effects with autism, HIV and ME, as viruses fight back against the rebuilt immune system's attack.
People's reactions to a rebuilt immune system are very different - from zero, which is typical, to severe in a minority of cases.
Inside two hours GcMAF will begin to affect your immune system, and (if your immune system is at least partially active) a shot of 0.1ml or more may cause tiredness which usually lasts 3-4 hours. You may feel better than usual for the first 2-3 weeks as the immune system wakes up.
After the end of the first week of GcMAF you may notice the immune system has begun to attack tumours; at the end of three weeks it will be attacking at full strength, but you may not be aware of this.
GcMAF is a protein that your body should have made on its own, and there is a tiny chance (under 0.1%) you may have an allergic reaction, usually within the first 2 hours. If in doubt start with a 0.05ml dose, then 0.1 after 12 hours. If you do have a reaction, it can be treated with anti-histamine tablets, which can usually be bought from a chemist without prescription (hay fever is an allergic reaction).
We have not yet seen either positive or negative initial autoimmune reactions. If HIV, the IRIS disease may cause you to get worse before you get better. See "Research." But in the end, the results have so far always been positive.
Other minor side effects may include cytokine activity (with accompanying fatigue and minor weight loss, no such reports yet), histamine release (with possibly a headache) and the symptoms of a fever (3.5 hours of hot flushes) as the immune system goes to work.
If cancer, the tumours should swell slightly initially as the immune system inflames and attacks them. Markers will rise initially as the tumours break up. If prostate cancer, GcMAF initially causes PSA numbers to rise for 2-3 months as the for the same reason.
Many never notice anything more than an improving sense of well being.
Terminal cancer cases
If you are a responder, stage 4 or terminal cancer is not necessarily a bar to success.
Gc MAF has main effects more than side effects. It repairs your immune system, and that will go to war on cancer and other diseases you may possess.The more serious the cancer, the more major the war may be. The war appears to reach peak level in three weeks. You must be fit enough to survive the war.
But by comparison with chemotherapy or radiation treatments, the war is trivial.
In the last stages of terminal liver or brain cancer. The liver is such a major organ, in the last stage the war can be more than the person can stand. Reduce the dose to 0.05ml. Your immune system will firstly inflame and swell tumours in order to expose them, prior to destroying them. (In exposing cancers, GcMAF may reveal cancers you didn't know you had.) If in brain cancer you feel the effects of GcMAF in just over a week, this may be intercranial pressure (often treated with steroids / cortizone.) It is time to reduce the dose to 0.05 ml. Contact us immediately - we can put you in touch with a doctor who secialises in this.
GcMAF needs 8 weeks to begin to reduce tumour mass - after that, both the war and your symptoms should be receding.
HIV and AIDS
In 80% the diseases fight the immune system back rather as IRIS does in HIV, but not as bad. Nutrition is really important. You need the fully blown caveman diet, meat, fish vegetables and lipids. If you are on processed food, vegan, vegetarian or fast food diets, you are unlikely to make progress.
With the above exceptions, and as a general rule of thumb, if the average participant is capable of a 40 minute brisk walk in the sunshine each day, even if they are terminal stage 4 and a high responder, they should have no difficulty surviving the war, and typically will, at most, occasionally experience the symptoms of a fever - hot flushes and tiredness.
Please note these are our experiences so far; we are not doctors and you should take GcMAF under the supervision of a doctor. We can put you in contact with doctors experienced in this field if you wish. If at any time you feel you want to discontinue Gc MAF, please do so. We do NOT suggest you abandon any life saving treatment. If you are on rigorous medications, always confer with your specialist and ask for progress reports before making any changes to your treatment regime
If you are taking GcMAF, please check this often for new information, as new data comes in.
