October, 2012 - Her 2+, Stage IV, mets to lungs, liver, lymph, crumbling spine and splitting pelvis, lost use of legs and arm, given less than 2 months to live. 1 year later, 9 leptomeningeal brain tumors, given weeks to live.

I most likely would not be alive if I had not blasted the cancer into oblivion with western medicine. But no doctor foresaw a possibility of my surviving, let alone walking again, and being NED. I credit my naturopathic regimen with sustaining me through the brutality of western treatments as well as being very effective at helping my body to heal itself and now to keep the cancer at bay. 4 of my 9 brain tumors disappeared with only naturopathic therapies. I also credit the emotional, mental, and spiritual work I did as well. Everything I did and do focusses on transforming my bioterrain to being hostile to, as opposed to being supportive of, cancer.
My journey with breast cancer began in August 2007. After a roller coaster ride from hell, I thought it was over after 6 months. But 5 years later, it reared its ugly head with a frightening terminal diagnosis of Stage IV metastatic cancer. By 2012, tumors had crushed several vertebrae in my neck and spine and split my sacroiliac joint apart. I lost the use of my legs and one arm. I had lesions on my liver, lungs, and lymph nodes. With nothing to lose, I threw everything I could at healing. I employed a strict naturopathic regimen, received chemotherapy and radiation, and meditated on spiritual healing. I worked hard to rebuild joints and muscles and survive the cancer and toxic medicine. 13 months after diagnosis, most of my tumors were gone and I had regained 99% mobility. Although still considered terminal, I felt like I was going to live forever.
Then, Halloween of 2013, they found a rare and dangerous type of brain metastases with an average survival of 2.8 months after diagnosis. The tumors were inoperable, nor were they eligible for radiation, most chemotherapies couldnäó»t penetrate, and the blood-brain barrier prevented the targeted immunotherapy that had been keeping me alive from entering my brain to kill the cancer within. I had to get creative.
I'm still alive... for now... and I am NED/NAD (No Evidence of Disease/No Active Disease) !!!!!
I am indebted to all healers who have helped me on my path... even those who, at first look, appeared negative and obstructionist. I learned from them as well.
At at any moment, you have the power to say... This is not how my story will end.
There are many triggers for cancer.... carcinogens, toxins, genes, stress, etc. Our bodies fight them off every day. The simple truth is that if you have cancer, then your immune system wasn't up to the task at some point of fighting it off. Most likely, it was overwhelmed by toxins, enabling the triggers to take hold. The exact steps in my naturopathic protocol, which accomplished miracles for me, may not accomplish the same miracles for everyone, because no two situations are alike. But the principles still hold... your body can heal by itself if we get out of the way and support it. Avoid and get rid of accumulated toxins, rectify nutritional imbalances, boost your immune system, ingest cancer-killing substances, and take care of emotional wellness. Cancer is a seed that needs fertile soil to grow in. Basically, we wish to convert our 'bioterrain' from one that is hospitable to cancer, to one that is hostile to cancer. That's what chemo and radiation try to do but the problem is that they are also hostile to healthy cells and systems. So, the more you can do naturopathically to be hostile to cancer, the less toxic western medicine you may need and the better equipped to survive the toxins you will be. The more attuned you become to your body and the particular obstacles to good health that you face, the clearer your path will become. Bless you all on the path you choose. http://whatididanddoandwhy.com
