Please summarize your healing story in 100 words or less Re-diagnosed with a stage three recurrence in October of 2014, I knew that I had not addressed the cause of my cancer. I also knew that conventional medicine would not cure me, and that it would certainly contribute to a decline in both quality and quantity of life. I declined chemo and radiation and embarked on a healing journey that involved energy healers, psychotherapy, herbs (common and Chinese), more dietary changes, supplementation, IVC infusions, essential oils, and more. One year later, I am healthier and happier than I have ever been.

Type of Healing

I first tried some conventional treatment (e.g., surgery), and my doctor wanted me to have additional treatment (e.g., chemotherapy), but I declined the additional treatment. Instead, I decided to use other healing techniques, and now I am well.

Briefly describe your diagnosis method and conventional treatments, including their timing. Did they help at all?

2007, Bilateral Mx, no further treatment. In October 2014 re-diagnosed stage 3 with axillary node invasion. Surgery, radiation and chemo recommended. Surgery removed 5 cancerous nodes; chemo and radiation declined. Surgery was ineffective. Jan 2015, two more nodes involved; declined removal. April 2015, one more node involved; declined removal.

Please tell us your healing story in as much detail as you would like:

I discovered a lump in my armpit in Sept 2014; the biopsy indicted cancer in one or two nodes. At first, I declined the surgery as I knew in my heart this was not good for my body. I finally agreed to have the two nodes removed (path from biopsy could not determine if my cancer was a new cancer or a state 3 recurrence from 2007), which was a big mistake. Long story short, surgeon removed ten, five of which were cancerous. I was now stage 3. I declined I declined chemo, radiation and aromatase-inhibiting drugs, knowing they would do more harm than good. Meanwhile I had begun working with various energy healers and developed an intense holistic protocol. I then started mind-therapy work in an attempt to release the emotional traumas from childhood that were apparently making me sick. I began EFT tapping, Reiki and Psychotherapy and other healing modalities. Come January, two more involved nodes were found. I declined surgery, and also the recommended chemo, radiation, and aromatase inhibitors. I stayed on my protocol and added the Emotion Code and more sessions with my energy healer. In April I had another sonogram. The good news is that the two nodes were still there but had not grown. The bad news is that there was another. I declined treatment. I boosted my protocol by adding Frankincense oil, and spent some time at the beach. In October my sonogram showed all clear.

I credit my healing to all of the changes I made. I will never know what, out of all what I did, made the difference, but I truly believe that if I had not healed the mind, I would not have healed the body and would surely see more cancer and that my recovery would be yet another Bandaid. The emotional work had a silver lining. I am a calmer and happier person now that the traumas of the past have been released and my inner calm restored. I will continue to nourish mind, body and soul. Life is good.

Cancer free over 5 years --the only thing that I have changed since then is to rotate my supplements in order to avoid resistance. I continue to do annual sonograms and frequent cancer marker and circulating tumor count testing.

UPDATE: As of April 2022, Elynj continues to thrive in health.
