Please summarize your healing story in 100 words or less Minutes after I found out that I could die at any minute, a profound peace enveloped me. I felt invincible and lost any concept of living or dying. I slipped into a heightened state of peace and tranquillity. I knew this was going to be the adventure of a lifetime and I was determined to enjoy every single moment of it, no matter what the outcome would be. From that moment onwards, I was led to my miraculous healing in ways that I never imagined possible. I overcame everything and was deeply filled with gratitude for every moment of my journey!

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

The diagnosis was made here in the U.S. from blood, urine tests and a C-Scan. I came to find that his diagnosis was astoundingly accurate. The doctor told me, "You could die at any moment." This was due to the severity and position of the branching tumor. I eventually decided to go out of the U.S. for treatment.

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

The peace that I found shortly after my diagnosis, left my entire being open and clear. Something about the severity of my "dying at any minute" diagnosis really took away all of my fears and left me in a state of bliss. This blissful state simply allowed me to receive whatever I needed at that particular moment. Things would arrive as if by sheer magic! My intuition lead me to a medical Institute in Mexico named Sanoviv. Miraculously, they have a method for shrinking and stabilizing tumours like mine through natural means. This would make the removal of the tumor far less dangerous. I was put on a very strict diet of organic food, pure water and no processed sugar. Also, I was given high amounts of oxygen in a hyperbaric chamber for hours a day, electrical stimulation exercise and the use of Infra-red saunas to increase my body temperature. Once the doctors felt I was ready for surgery, the tumor and the kidney were successfully removed with absolutely no spreading of the cancer. I was then given a vaccine that was created from my tumour that killed any remaining cancer cells in my body. In addition, it made me immune to ever getting this form of cancer again. After the surgery I was in excellent shape! Only 12 hours after surgery I was up, in the shower and back to eating my organic diet. I stayed on at Sanoviv for a few more weeks in order to "de-stress" my remaining kidney. I arrived home in a little less than six weeks with no pain, discomfort or stress and was able return to my work and my life as a teacher, Alexander Practitioner and opera singer.

EDITOR’S NOTE: As of October 2020, Gary is thriving post-diagnosis. Update:

Since my diagnosis in August of 2015, I have experienced no relapses nor related diagnoses in the past 4 years and 7 months. Nor have I been ill during that entire period of time. Since my return, I continue to follow my regiment of healthy eating, exercise and good mental hygiene. I have grown even more resolute in my belief that all disease and illness begin from internal causes and are not created by external ones. Although the outer circumstances may clearly appear to be the cause of the resulting disease, illness or ailment; it is the dis-ease of the body, mind and spirit that allows the chaos of disease to make an entrance. My advice to people is that the key to health, wholeness and happiness lies within. Since publishing my book, Bliss: One Hero’s Journey in 2018 I have now helped many people to embrace their own heroic journey! We are all here to grow, learn and to become whole. Nothing we encounter on this journey has come to harm us, but rather to help guide us toward our greater good.

Do you have any thoughts about what may have caused your health challenge in particular, or what causes it in general?

Definitely stress, in work, relationships and by over-extending myself. (enabling behavior)
