Cynthia Jayasuriya

My name is Cynthia Jayasuriya. I am an Ear Nose Throat (ENT) surgeon and have been practicing medicine for over 50 years in Colombo, Sri Lanka. I created this blog to share my cancer recovery experience with those of you who are impacted directly by cancer or indirectly thru family and friends.

Following my recovery, I shared my experience thru newspaper articles, which resulted in others trying out Manioc as an alternative treatment. I am relating records of their shared experiences in this blog

Rizvi, a gem merchant. Cancer of the thyroid - January 2015

He had a total thyroidectomy followed by radio iodine treatment.  He had undergone 4 sessions of radio iodine treatment, which resulted in his getting a fracture of the femur.  He developed a cough, producing blood.  He was without hope, with a young wife and 4 children.
When he contacted me I suggested the manioc drink because he told me the cancer had spread to his lungs, and the drink would be easier to consume vs. cooked manioc.  After 2 weeks of drinking the manioc drink the haemoptysis (blood when coughing) stopped and his appetite improved. 

Our contact had been via the phone.  I met him in person for the first time 6 weeks after he started the manioc drink, when he came be to let me know how well he was feeling.
