I have had cancer twice in my life . . .
The first time I was 23 and newly married. I developed cancer as the result of a molar pregnancy - this occurs when an egg with no genetic information is fertilized by a sperm. The sperm grows on its own, but it can only become a lump of tissue and can never develop into a fetus and ultimately a baby. As this tissue grows, it looks a bit like a cluster of grapes and can fill the uterus and can develop into cancer. The traditional medical course of treatment at that point is chemotherapy.
So after months of blood tests it was determined that I needed to undergo 12 rounds of chemotherapy . . . It was 1978 and the drugs were very harsh. Thankfully I was able to stop at the end of 5 rounds of chemo. I was very fortunate and was doing everything I could to keep my body as healthy as possible . . . no sugar, no processed foods, lots of fresh fruits and veggies, none-the-less my body suffered. The intense nausea from the poisons injected into my veins and the extreme burning throughout my venous system was so uncomfortable that I would not wish this on my worst enemy!
This process began my burning desire to understand the body and ways to heal it naturally. In fact, at that point I was convinced that anyone who's immune system could survive the onslaught of the poison that is chemotherapy, could have kicked cancer naturally!
So in 1999 when I found that I had cancer for the second time - oddly enough, located in my small intestine - I was determined to heal myself naturally. This decision was based not only on my experience with chemotherapy, but my growing knowledge of natural health through my studies and private practice. I had been telling my patients that cancer, like any other illness was a symptom of an imbalance in their lives - it could be a physical, emotional, mental or spiritual imbalance. So I had to take my own advice . . .
I worked on all levels of my being and just a few months later I was cancer free!
This led me to study even more about the medical treatment of cancer so I would understand the options for my patients. What I found supported my personal experience with chemotherapy . . .
However, I have found a few experts I generally trust, who disagree. They believe that at times 1 round of chemotherapy can cause a tumor to shrink enough for surgical removal. While the jury is still out on that course of treatment in my mind, I completely agree with the information contained in this article.
