Thread: Hydrazine Sulphate or "HZ" - Where can I get it in UK and any experience of it?

  1. #1

    Cool Hydrazine Sulphate or "HZ" - Where can I get it in UK and any experience of it?

    I'm very interested in Alternative Treatments, especially for Cancers. I read about HZ (Hydrazine Sulphate) as a treatment for Cachexia and I wondered if anyone has any experience of it and where I can get it in UK at a low cost?
    Trouble is anything like this, is regarded as "Low Cost" in USA, but that is often "out of reach", for many Senior Citizens in UK?
    Quite often I find that some merchants in USA, think a cost of $40 or more, to ship a small bottle "Across the Pond", is reasonable!
    A "Ready-to-Ship" padded envelope for this, might only cost about $12 or less!

    I'd never heard of it, so looked it up on wiki.

    It seems that it is incompatible with lots of drugs and foods that one might want to use/eat, and so, coupled with nothing to show any significant efficacy, I would not personally take it even if it were free.

    Oldcodger,
    Welcome, but this is a interrnational forum for conventional cancer treatment.
    We neither accept, recognise or promote alternative treatments.
    There are many sites that you have the option of joining that deal specifically with Alt treatments.
    This is not one of them.
    Trying not to be too blunt, but there are many claims the efficacy for alternative treatment, yet none have proven effective, only unsubstantiated claims when one looks closely.
    Most in my and other members opinions are there is always a "catch" pay your money and they will sell you anything.
    Having been through cancer, I wouldn't touch an Alt treatment with a barge pole.

    Hi
    Hydrazine Sulphate is classed by the US department of health and human services as a potential carcinogen. The fact that some unscrupulous company would charge you $40 to get a bottle of it shipped over does not surprise me at all. Do yourself a favor and avoid it.

    Good luck

    Great moments often catch us unaware-beautifully wrapped in what others may consider a small one.

    I may not have gone where I intended to go,
    but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.
