The first cancer survivor to stand on the top of the world!
With only one functioning lung, a prognosis of fourteen days to live, and being in a medically-induced coma for a year, Sean Swarner is the first cancer survivor to stand on top of the world… Mt. Everest. Sean has broken through defined human limitation in order to redefine the way the world views success.
Sean having grown up in Willard, Ohio was diagnosed with two deadly, different, and unrelated forms of cancer, once at the age of thirteen and again at the age of sixteen. After an incredibly poor prognosis, and being read his last rites, Sean astounded the medical community when he survived both these brutal diseases. He realized that after defeating cancer twice, no challenge would ever be too great, no peak too high.
Sean proved his theory when he crested the peak of Mt. Everest. As the first cancer survivor to do so, Sean decided to continue climbing and has since topped the highest peaks in Africa, Europe, South America, Australia, Antarctica, and North America, thus completing the “7-Summits”.
With the completion of the Ironman World Championship in Hawaii, Sean has his sights on trekking to the Poles at the top and bottom of the world.
As Sean continues to defy the odds, test his own endurance and inspire and motivate people around the world, he shares his message of healing, hope, and triumph with cancer patients worldwide. Sean also serves as a source of inspiration as the founder of the non-profit organization, The CancerClimber Association, as author of the book “Keep Climbing,” and as a motivational speaker to corporations, universities, and other organizations around the globe.
Sean Swarner will continue to Keep Climbing and defy boundaries in order to change the way people think. He has been called the most powerful inspirational speaker ever by such companies as IBM, Roche, Amgen, and countless organizations and universities around the globe. He has an uncanny ability to empower people to climb their own Everest in both life and in business. After hearing Sean speak, your life will never be the same. ♡♡♡♡♡

Hope to It: ‘Cancer climber’ has scaled Kilimanjaro 12 times
Cancer sufferer Edie Littlefield Sundby (with her husband Dale)
Published on Feb 16, 2013
To celebrate six years of being alive, fighting Stage 4 gallbladder cancer with metastasis to liver and lung, Edie Sundby walked the 800 mile El Camino Mission Trail … Edie walked on average 14 and a half miles a day over a 55-day period. “I am fighting to stay alive not because I fear death, but because I love life. I thank God every day for this life, and I want there to be more, though that’s not known. What is known is that I’m alive today, this minute. And that’s pretty much what we all have – this day, this moment.”
“I walked the old unmapped old mission trail that stretches from San Diego to north of San Francisco to rid myself of the terror of cancer, and to overcome the fear of it coming back. It took hundreds of miles walking to just begin to rid my heart of six years of fear. That fear may never completely fade, but actively engaging life – whatever that may involve – reminds me of the joy each day can bring.”
“The long walk was a slow remembering of how profound and wonderful life is; along the old trail God is everywhere and in everything. Wherever I look I am looking at God.”
“I came to realize that we are held in the hands of God and are utterly perfectly safe – in life and in death.”
HellothisisMalloryDavenport and I just had my 30th Birthday June 18 and times always haven’t been this happy for me. I would like to brief you “why this blog has come about.” In Sept. 2011, I was diagnosed with stage ll Hodgkins Lymphoma at the age of 25. I had just gotten married that April to my best friend and soul mate. 🙂 My job as an independent insurance adjuster was going great, I was making good money and traveling the U.S. SO Getting diagnosed with cancer was like being blindsided by a truck.
I decided to do chemo in Fort Worth where I had my house at the time, since Jack and I hadn’t been married that long and we worked on the road, I hadn’t officially moved into his house…. in Daphne, Al. So I started chemo in Fort Worth, Texas in November 2011, the standard treatment for Hodgkins Lymphoma (ABVD). SO This is how my experience began: While arriving at my first chemo not knowing what in the world was going to happen to me.
The One thought that still burns in my mind from my first chemo, Is when I went into the chemo room…. and as I picked out the chair…. I would sit in for the next few hours. Something inside me yelled, “Your body is too strong for this chemo, it’s not going to work”. So I pushed that thought away and didn’t think about it again until my first PET scan, when I was told my cancer wasn’t responding like it should.
I stayed inside for months, my blood counts were always low and I wasn’t allowed to be around people, due to the risk of getting sick. I spent a lot of time in the bed with bone pain, and body aches. Some days I would go into my closet and cry out to God, “What did I do?” “Why are you doing this to me?” “Why did you let me meet my soulmate to take it away from me, and are you going to let me die?” I was also embarrassed that those words came out of my mouth, because it was me a year earlier that asked God to change my path and redirected to a more righteous path.
Those weak moments where when I would questioned God’s plan — because I didn’t understand why this path… why me, why cancer? That answer came a year or so later, when the pieces started to fall together!!!
When I went on to complete ABVD chemo in Fort Worth and they did a PET scan to see what was going on. The doctor I had in Fort Worth came in after my PET scan to tell me that my cancer had gotten more aggressive and there was nothing he could do for me, he was sending me to MD Anderson in Houston. After three rounds of in-patient ICE Chemo treatment.
Having been told I had to go to MD Anderson, my thoughts told me to move to Houston next to MD Anderson for four months while being prepped and sent through a stem cell transplant, this was in July 2012. At this time, I have an idea of natural therapies and had randomly met people that had cured Hodgkins naturally. I wasn’t convinced I could heal anything naturally and continued on with conventional treatment. In October 2012, I was able to go home…. this time….. I would go home to Alabama. This is when I started to wake from my American slumber.
While waking up from this rude awakening trying to figure out. Why in the world would I think I could be healed by poison being pumped into my body killing my immune system? Because I was told doctors are there to help you and studies have been done to prove the effects of chemo treatment are usually counter active… But it did the opposite for me, it made my cancer worse?
After the chemo didn’t respond: I had also been told that I would have to wait 2 years for stem cell to see if I was in the clear. 2 years was their magic number… two whole years is when most people relapsed. I was never really in remission, I went back over all my scans they all show activity under the left arm before stem cell and after. See chemo can not kill cancer stem cells, the stem cells protein is too hard to penetrate.
They kill every other cell making it appear like the cancer is shrinking, when actually the cancer stem cells are creating their own food supply and blood line, like a little tumor village (what I like to call it). The immune system can not see or detect these cancer cells, they are rouge and go unnoticed. During the “two years” they had time to grow and build back up their little tumor village under my left arm, it wasn’t a lot of growth but enough to make the MD Anderson team want to poke at it.
At this point I was sick of being poked, had PTSD everytime I crossed the Texas border headed for MD Anderson. They had drilled into my hip bones six times within a year for bone marrow biopsies. They don’t put you out while their drilling into your bones, your wide awake and can feel it. All my other biopsy had been taken in 15 mins intervals at the most. I was becoming a pro at this! And this last one was different, I passed out from the pain and threw up…. as this pain was excoriating. As all my cancer buddies kept asking why I had so many bone marrow biopsies.
I have never had any traces of cancer in my blood or marrow, so I wasn’t really sure why I had so many. I just did what ever the doctors wanted without questioning anything. I didn’t want to go back after that biopsy and I wouldn’t have gone back but my mom and mother in law knew that my stem cell team wanted to do another biopsy on my tumor (that was barely there), I was weak and gave in.
May 2014, This was my 3rd biopsy on this one spot, usually I was in and out and awake through the entire procedure. I liked watching the needle go in and puncture the small node, it was fascinating. Fascinating and horrible because I was like an experiment! The node was so small and so hard that the needle couldn’t penetrate it, for 30 minutes they dug around in my under arm trying to chase down a small lymph node not big enough to biopsy.
From my own vantage point …through the eye of an Alabama hurricane… this is what happens when you penetrate the thick protein of a cancer cell. When the needle is removed it leaves an open hole in the cell wall allowing the cancer to spread. Going through years of chemo and a transplant doesn’t leave much of an immune system to fight off anything. The tumor that I could feel at the time of the biopsy was the size of two quarters by June 2014. My granddad died of chemo toxicity on June 28th, thats when I kicked it into gear. I blew up on the doctors.
I knew from my granddad’s experience what had happen was wrong and he was healthy before he started chemo and radiation, he was only in his 70s. I also remember being in a room with my Mom, Aunt, and my brother, the doctors came in to explain what would happen next and that he would slowly die. I knew what was going to happen I had went through it with my granddad!!!
They had blasted him with so much radiation and chemo in such a short time it shut his body down, one organ at a time. My mother and brother had not seen this side of me before, I was always the shy little country girl. That shy girl I once was left that one day, never to return. I left that day and didn’t go back to the hospital, Granddaddy had chemo before he went into cardiac arrest, so I knew that on the third day after his chemo that the organs would shut down because thats when chemo hits the hardest.
Before I go any further some of you will get upset and think I’m anti-doctor…. blah – blah, I don’t care what other people chose to think and do. That is their choice not mine. I have friends that did well on chemo and are healthy and happy, and I’m grateful for that. I wish my body could have handle chemo and treatment that way, but not everybody’s body is created the same.
We have different individually with different blood types, some of us may have weaker immune system than others. Are bodies are all different, thats what makes “studies” “group studies” have no meaning to me. Also the “studies” only follow the patient two years at the most. There is that special number again “two years”! My clinical trail study only went 60 days post transplant, but what about the here and now? The clinical trial failed may also fail after their 60 day window!!!!
Also do you know how a PET scan works? It uses glucose to feed the active areas of cancer so they can see it on a scan, telling them where the cancer is. They know that cancers lives off sugar, if they didn’t there wouldn’t be a PET scan. Do you know that every body has cancer cells in their bodies thousands each day, our immune systems in their natural healthy state fight them off.
After all these trials and tribulations of life they had forced me through during this “two years.” I began researching and studying until I couldn’t see straight and knew the path that I wanted to take. I began realizing that every body has cancer cells in their bodies 1000x’s each day and for the most part our immune systems in their natural healthy state fight them off. Its when our bodies get bogged down by life, food, and stress that our bodies immune system… won’t preform like they should. Which gives cancer a wonderful breeding environment to grow and thrive!
At this point I started wondering why if the the immune system being so important for our survival. Why are these doctors so determined to attack and damage it with poison or radiation. Some people will tell you, they know what they are doing they are killing the cancer with the poison and radiation. So if this is true why are we killing the cancer with the body, but we haven’t even addressed what caused the cancer???
With all that said I have just written I am faced with fighting Hodgkin’s and I decided after failed conventional treatment that fighting it naturally is my best option. There is no easy cure, it takes a commitment to make a lifestyle change for a healthier mind and body. Every day is a new battle, our bodies are all different, you have to find your own balance and learn your body…. SO If we create a healthy environment and take the time to work on ourselves it creates a better body to fight off cancer and diseases.
In a new study, Zahra Lotfallani, a researcher at University of Adelaide in Australia,
(that’s her in the pic) found that one type of Mistletoe extract called Fraxini, when compared to chemotherapy, was more effective against colon cancer cells and less toxic.
“Mistletoe extract has been considered a viable alternative therapy overseas for many years, but it’s important for us to understand the science behind it,” says one of Ms Lotfollahi’s supervisors, the University of Adelaide’s Professor Gordon Howarth, a Cancer Council Senior Research Fellow.
“Although mistletoe grown on the ash tree was the most effective of the three extracts tested, there is a possibility that mistletoe grown on other, as yet untested, trees or plants could be even more effective,” said Howarth.
Now this is really not a new discovery as mistletoe has been used to treat cancer for nearly 75 years (mostly outside the U.S. of course). One survey showed that over 60% of German cancer clinics use mistletoe in some form, and often in conjunction with standard treatments.
It is always encouraging to see more evidence of its effectiveness. Not that we necessarily need any more evidence…
FYI: The most commonly used form of mistletoe used for cancer treatment is a homeopathic preparation of European Mistletoe called Iscador, which is made from lacto-fermented extract of mistletoe and is also one of the alternative cancer therapies used and popularized by Suzanne Somers.
The experience of Alyssia Sade and her husband Perry (pseudonyms used due to legal issues) provides thorough and powerful insight into these issues, along with the potential complications of cannabis extract therapy.
This is some valuable advice from Jack Kungel who has beaten cancer 🙂
The Science of Marijuana:
· AN ALTERNATIVE WAY …
1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When the doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect cancer cells. Because they have not reached the detectable size.
2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person’s lifetime.
3. When the person’s immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.
4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.
5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.
6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastro-intestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.
7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.
8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.
9. When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.
10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.
11. An effective way to battle cancer is to STARVE the cancer cells by not feeding it with foods it needs to multiple.
What cancer cells feed on:
a. Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells. Note: Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute… would be Stevia Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in color. A Better alternative is Pink Himalayan sea salt.
b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soy milk, cancer cells will starved.
c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. Meat can also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.
d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes t o nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells.
To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).
e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine. Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer-fighting properties. Water–best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.
12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines will become putrified and leads to more toxic buildup.
13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body’s killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.
14. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor-ssence, Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the body’s own killer cells to that can destroy cancer cells. Other supplements like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body’s normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.
15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor.
Anger, unforgiving and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.
16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells. (PLEASE SHARE THIS TO PEOPLE YOU CARE ABOUT)!!!
Maria and Megan Sherow tell the incredible story of how they didn’t give up after multiple Doctors told them there was nothing they could do to save her. While Raw food and veganism may have played the largest roll in her healing process, they discuss the many changes they made to their lives that synergistically allowed for Megan’s body to fully heal. These changes include, self love, dry fasting, early nights with lots of sleep, positive mental outlook, chemical-free living, and many more. Some may have called it a miracle, others may praise the powers of nature, Megan believes that once we get out of our body’s way, there’s nothing it can’t heal. Incase you didn’t fully absorb it the first time, she cured stage 3 terminal brain cancer.
Although I’m hardly surprised, it is a tragedy that that there has yet to be a single, high-quality clinical (human) trial conducted to investigate a very promising anti- cancer phenomenon that researchers have known about since 1959.
It was discovered that if you try to grow cancer cells in a medium with little-to-no methionine (an essential amino acid), often the cells would stop growing, dividing and they would undergo apoptosis (“cell suicide”.) Similar findings were subsequently reported in many studies using animals implanted with tumors. When fed a methionine-restricted diet their tumors grew more slowly, spread less often and also the animals survived longer then those fed a regular diet. Importantly, harmful effects due to short-term methionine restriction were rarely seen in the animals or normal cells studied.
These studies discovered that a wide-range of cancer types require methionine to grow and divide (this is called “methionine-dependent”), such as:
head and neck cancer
Methionine restriction has been shown to be safe in at least one study with cancer patients who were placed on a low-methionine diet for 17-18 weeks. The patients lost on average 0.5 kg per week while on the study. But it is not known whether this weight loss was due to the diet (0.6-0.8 g of protein, 25-35 kcal, and 2 mg of methionine per kilogram per day) or cancer progression since all the patients had advanced disease (metastatic cancer.)
How Does Methionine Restriction Cause Anticancer Effects?
Methionine is an important amino acid that is used as a building block for proteins that are essential for cell development and growth. This is particularly important for cancer cells that are rapidly dividing (whereas normal cells tend to grow more slowly and require less methionine.) This amino acid is so critical that there is even a complex biochemical process that is named after it called, the Methionine (or Yang) Cycle.
Additionally, it is now believed that methionine-dependent cancers have mutations in important tumor growth suppressor genes (genes responsible for stopping cancer cell growth.) If these genes are mutated the cancer cells grow without inhibition. That’s not a good thing.
How Do You Restrict Methionine In your Diet?
If you are willing to switch to a vegan diet you will dramatically reduce your consumption of methionine-rich foods. Meat, fish, poultry, eggs, cheeses, soybeans, sesame seeds and brazil nuts are high in methionine (see table), whereas most vegetables and fruit are low in methionine.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Will this diet help improve my cancer outcomes?
We don’t have human studies to guide us on this.
Not all cancers are methionine-dependent and unfortunately we don’t have a simple test to determine if your cancer is susceptible to this diet.
Is it safe for me to follow this diet?
You need to ask your treating oncology team “if ” they think it is safe for you based on your specific circumstances. If you are actively losing weight it is not advisable to start a diet which could accelerate additional weight loss. Reassuringly, although methionine is an essential amino acid (meaning your body requires it), it’s very uncommon for someone following a vegan diet to develop problems due to a methionine deficiency. Just make sure you are consuming adequate calories and a wide variety of plant foods. So that you can better ensure you are receiving the full range of nutrients your body requires (vitamins, minerals, fats, proteins and carbohydrates.)
What foods can I eat that are both low in methionine but high in protein?
Since many protein-rich foods like meat, poultry, fish, and certain beans that are high in methionine you may be wondering what foods you can eat that will allow you to consume enough protein to meet your daily allowance are also low in methionine. The best website I have found to help me answer questions like this is SelfNutritionData.org (see this link for a list of foods that are high in protein and low in methionine.)
The Bottom Line:
If your cancer is methionine-dependent, it is possible that by switching to a vegan diet (inherently low in methionine) or a diet that is predominantly plant-based with limited amounts of meat, fish, eggs and poultry (i.e. Mediterranean diet), you might be able to take advantage of this promising anticancer effect.
Since there are no simple tests that you can easily order from most labs to tell you whether your cancer is methionine-dependent you may not get any anticancer benefits from methionine-restriction. That said, switching to a plant based (or predominant) diet will still provide you with many other anticancer properties regardless of the cancer’s dependency on methionine:
Whole plant foods are full of cancer-fighting phytonutrients, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds, and
Whole plant foods generally have a lower glycemic load (meaning they don’t cause a large and rapid rise in blood sugar and insulin levels after consuming them…read Sugar and Carbohydrates 101 to learn more.)
Before you start any dietary changes discuss it with you oncology care team.
Watch this excellent (5 minute) video by NutritionFacts.Org on this topic:
Her name is Ann Cameron, an author of 15 children’s books. On Tuesday July 30th, 2013 she had CT scan for malignant tumors on her lungs. On Thursday August 1st 2013, she got the results: “NO EVIDENCE OF CANCER.”
She believes that carrots can cure cancer and rapidly, without radiation, chemotherapy, or other dietary changes. Everyone diagnosed with cancer should try this remedy, because the result show up very fast.
Her husband’s died from lung cancer in 2005 despite chemotherapy and this was her first encounter of this cruel disease. So she refused to go the same way and refused chemotherapy.
“Chris beats cancer” is a blog for people who have found alternative ways of treating cancer to share their experience, and Ann is one of them.
“In June 2012, I was subjected to surgery for colon cancer, and after that I refused chemotherapy treatment. Every day I felt better, but after six months, the control examination showed the cancer had spread to the lung, and colon cancer, entered in the fourth stage”, -says Ann.
She was very distraught after her doctor told her she has only two or three years to live without chemo. Then she started reading everything she could find on the internet about alternatives of curing cancer without chemotherapy and radiation. Her husband had tried some of those alternatives but they didn’t help.
While researching she hit upon a letter saying that drinking five pounds of carrots juice daily had helped people with variety of cancer.
SO She juiced 5 lbs. of carrots per day.
After two weeks there was no improvement.
Then after eight weeks drinking the juiced carrots, the growth of the tumors had stopped.
And after six months there was no evidence of cancer.
Unlike some supplements drinking carrot juice is not prohibited during conventional treatment. Carrot juice is perfectly compatible with chemo and simultaneous radiation. But Ann didn’t want the recommended chemo because of the side effects.
So she had no radiation, no chemo, no other treatments only carrot consumption.
She believes that a newly diagnosed person like her, still in good health, could safely put off chemotherapy and see if five pounds of carrots daily will halt the growth of cancer, and hopefully will eliminate the cancer entirely.
Based on her extensive reading in scientific journals focused on nutrition and cancer, her ground-breaking book describes the details of the carrot treatment and the scientific evidence for its power.
In this book, she shares little-known research that is revolutionizing scientific thinking about cancer and how to treat it. The research comes from the exciting new field of epigenetics–the study of how chemical switching mechanisms in our bodies change the expression of our genes. Our environment, the foods we eat, and the way we live can silence pro-cancer genes or turn them on, set anti-cancer genes on alert or turn them off.
Genes aren’t our destiny. Neither is cancer.
Cancer develops when the body loses its ability to recognize and eliminate rogue cells–cells that take over the body if they don’t quit dividing. In some cases–probably many–carrots can restore the body’s natural power to regulate growth and kill defective cells.
The scientific information in this book could be a life-saver and a beacon of hope for you or someone you know. Equally helpful, it offers the practical knowledge Cameron gained from her journey through cancer and back to health–how to use the internet to research proposed treatments and the quality of hospitals and doctors; how to reduce the cost of cancer care; and how to arrive at individual treatment decisions that are best for you.
For a second time six months later it had to be a huge disappointment. Deciding not again, Paula decided putting her Faith in GOD’s hands and everything will be alright. Living in Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada, with the pollution quality average and the oil tar sands to far to equate. Paula lived a clean “vegan” lifestyle keeping her pH “alkaline” balanced and thinking it can’t happen to me.
However, being a Critical Care Nurse (22 years) and enduring family crisis with a brother and a H1N1 outbreak. With a mother passing away 1 year later after a year and one/half battle that broke her heart and soul. After being ran down from personal lost and finishing her first iron man contest that “stress load” caught her.
Thereby, being diagnosed six weeks after her second and training for a third just 12 weeks later…. as it never happened. Now today looking back: believing this awakening is taking her longer to heal because her thoughts were a bit scattered and unfocused. Today she is developing a mode of self reflection and realization.
The Angels slowed me down to wake me up to “why” “I am” here today. Having Blue days of wanting to let it all go. Cancer has a mind of it’s own. Cancer has days when you get tired of the pills and the emotions that define cancer. You wake up some days being sick and tired of being sick and tired. Some days it’s a lonely days thinking a blues days.
While also being burnt out trying to figure out why me or why anyone. You also get a chance to learn from your own mistakes and that cannabis doesn’t work for me. It was a period of eight months of my life taken away (I could not function and I won’t do it again ~ it’s not for everybody.) For now…. she has turned to plant based nutrition ( juicing eight times/day in a Modified Gerson Diet.)
With coffee enemas daily, tons of supplements, herbal teas, energizer equipment, infrared saunas, rebounding, acupuncture and massage. Also looking back on it today, Paula believes disease is blocked energy. Reiki will move that blocked energy around in your body- it will balance you. She also feels she was not balanced mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
Being one therapy doesn’t fit all… everyone reacts differently to therapy. Paula found a Total Body Modification Chiropractor that does (Mind/ Body in Spirit technique.) If I die it’s not from being idle and not doing everything I can possibly do. It’s believing everything for a reason, everybody for that reason and everybody in your life having a reason.
If I live it’s because the universe conspired to bring it all together. And I will sure be able to relate better to a lot more people on every level. Thereby, one must have unconditional love, not be overly critical and judgmental as life is a reflection of what your feeling. While letting go and never worrying about the outcome for it will paralyze you and that’s the energy blockage that causes dis=ease.
“Dear Cancer, it’s taken me a lot longer than I would have liked but finally I’ve got rid of you. It’s been a bit of a roller coaster ride and at one point I thought you’d beaten me but winners never quit and I’ve whipped your arse. Goodbye, good riddance and don’t come back.”
Hi you all, just wanted to share with you my good news. In July 2013, I was diagnosed with stage 4a cervical cancer. I followed the conventional treatment route because I didn’t really know I had any other choice. To be fair it served me well but never fully gave me the all clear. It culminated in October 2014, when they told me …. it had come back in para-aortic lymph nodes with increased activity in the cervix and they could only further offer palliative care.
I sought other opinions, became a member of the Solitarius Facebook group and with the help of your articles, posts and other peoples stories & comments. Putting into place certain protocols and changes in my diet completely which became a commitment. Thereby, January scan showed no presence in the lymph nodes and reduced focus in the cervix, Then in April scan was totally normal. With the only thing I have done different is diet and supplementation. Without those changes I’m sure my story would have been different.
So for everybody who is interested this is what I did:
Feeling this natural protocol helped with those conventional treatments. I eliminated any form of processed food or meats and anything having sugar in it which included fruit juices. Restricted fruit intake to the morning and ate a minimal amount of high sugar fruits such as pineapple, grapes etc. every morning drink water with 2 teaspoons of organic lemon juice and half teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda, supplement with AloeVera juice, vitamin D (I had a test to show I was deficient as all Cancer patients tend to be.)
While also taking 1000mg vitamin C, turmeric, zinc, pine bark tablets and omega 3 tablets. I tried to eat apricot kernels disguised in nuts so they were less disgusting. Drank mainly green tea. Tried to eat as little red meat as possible and minimised white carbs (as they are basically just sugar). Where possible eating organic vegetables (again avoiding too many root vegetables as high in sugar, with the only exception being carrots as pros out weigh cons there) and whole grains.
I didn’t cut out dairy completely but cut back. I had a probiotic to help digest all these changes and initially used milk thistle as a liver cleanse. I also cut out alcohol and drank more water which was filtered. I took a nutritional course so I could understand what the changes I was making were doing. I think good nutrition was the key and eating organic. As I wasn’t too fussed about organic meat as in UK antibiotic use is strictly regulated and hormones are banned.
Over n’ over again I hear cancer patients through their own research and natural therapy decisions. It is what it is and this website is about exploring the possibilities and being curator you gain firsthand account. Within my Facebook friends list: I learned another impressive experience from Doris Parreno of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. This is the first blog post I talked openingly about a product, however, this warrants consideration?
Doris having tried everything imaginable, even German Homeopathic Intense Therapies of Caresang (American ginseng), Mistletoe, vitamin c, B17 and chelation. Imparted this piece of advice: learn when it comes to what you put in my body now especially for healing. So choose only the best even if you have to pay little more… it surly beats IV therapy.
Therefore…. this is Doris Parreno’s Experience:
After having some cramping in my stomach, having a little blood come from my nose on a regular basis and feeling pretty tired on a daily basis where I felt like a needed a nap and sometimes the nap lasted a couple of hours, I decided to go to doctor for a routine physical. I did mammogram and in November, 2011 was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, Triple Positive, Estrogen Positive, High Grade 3, DCIS, Invasive, Aggressive Carcinoma.
I was sure there had been a mistake because I was always relatively healthy, never smoked or drank and never thought I would get cancer. After several opinions, it was not a mistake and I was prescribed a very heavy treatment including Lumpectomy, Chemotherapy, Radiation, Herceptin and Tamoxifen for 5 years. I did get the lumpectomy!!! As the rest of the treatment was all so very scary considering it was referred to as “preventive treatment”.
I knew that treatment was going to knock me out, potentially to kill me or cause more problems in my body and immune system. I figured if this is what I need to do then I may just have to do it. Before my scheduled chemo date, I did a lot of research as to various options but was hesitant to try anything else because I figured the hospitals know best. In the process of my research, I also heard Suzanne Somers talk about ‘chemo sensitivity test’.
I thought it all made sense “if ” I have to do chemo I better do that test. So I did the test and the discovered that the chemo I was going to be given had a very high chance of not working. I have seen friends go through ‘chemo’ that did not work; and it could have been recipe for disaster. So, I asked oncologist if I could have the chemo that was going to work based on the chemo sensitivity test.
She told me that they do not customize treatment for patients and what I was offered is what I would have to take. I was petrified at my potential future. The test also offered alternative therapies, that were non toxic, and seemed to work for the circulating tumor cells that I had. I didn’t have choice but to go the alternative route. As soon as I started to follow that route I started to get better.
I did everything it would take to get better. It was not easy and a full time job, I just knew I had to drop everything when death was staring me in the eyes.
One year after my diagnosis, I can say that I am on my way to full healing. This has been a very costly and self-sacrificing journey, but one worth it for the quality of life… I was able to carry on, with no toxic side effects. I heard about the oils and put a couple of drops here and there, clearly I was not using the right dosage, once I bought Terry’s program I began to understand how cancer worked and the right dosage but was reluctant to depend on the “oils,” it just sounded too good to be true.
I started to tell some other girls at the clinic where I was going about the oils and they got on them right away full force (now that I knew the right dosage) needless to say in 5 weeks one of the girls tumor in her ovaries totally disappeared and the other lady her circulating tumor cells went to normal after 2 months on the oils and Terry’s programs. As I started to take the oils more seriously, after 2 months of the sacred frankenscense and the raindrop I was pretty much cancer free and started to save money and make money… thank you!
I can share my 7 Step Program with others:
Get a thermography (at right place – to see where I was at and to monitor progress) (Dr. Zoya Voitenko is great source for this.)
Get circulating tumor cell test and nk test and protols that would best treat those CTC’s and to monitor progress of treatments(seems can detect cancer even before tumor is present)
Get PH Strips to monitor Acidity/alkaline levels in body (at health food store costs approx. $15)
Get extensive blood work done to identify exactly where you are at
Take care of dental issues and have silver fillings removed by IOAMT approved dentist…. I did it at a place but it is important to deal with any bacterial issues in mouth…this looks like a good place…. I will go here for more in depth analysis of dental issues just to make sure this is properly taken care of…. (watch this youtube video below for more information)
I got on Gerson therapy diet, coffee enemas and supplements
German accupunture (optional)
Parasite cleansing and Organ cleansing and detoxing
Start with the Ningxia juice and you can also order the frankenscense at this site too…
