I stumbled across your website when I was looking for alternatives to Chemotherapy. I believe what you have done is very courageous and inspiring.
I am 32 and have been diagnosed with Breast Cancer, no family history, generally healthy - so totally shocking. I have had 2 lots of surgery and the tumour was removed and my lymph nodes were clear.
I am due to start Chemotherapy on Tuesday and I am scared.
Since my diagnoses, I have changed my diet completely, pretty much vegan now and feel the healthiest I have felt in a long time. I have researched into healing myself with food and alternative therapies and it just makes sense to me, but there is also something in me that is saying I need to do the mainstream treatment as well, but the closer I get to it the crazier it seems.
Why would I want to go and get pumped full of toxic chemicals that will destroy my immune system when I feel so healthy and in tune with my body?
I have already been given Zoladex (meant to suppress ovaries - in the hope to remain fertile) and already I notice the changes in my body, not sleeping, spaced out and off my food. I just can’t imagine putting my body through this for 5 months with ongoing treatment for another 5 years.
I wish I had the courage you had. What do you think of doing the mainstream treatment alongside a plant based diet and alternate therapies?? Or is it counteractive? I am confused!!
The hospital system here (Hervey Bay, Australia) just seem to want to through every treatment at me, Chemotherapy, Radiation, Herceptin for a year and hormone treatment for a following 5 years - they’re reasoning for this is because of my age and that the tumor was grade 3 & triple positive - but the cancer could potentially all be gone already??
And when I ask what is the cause of my cancer, they say “Its just one of those things.”
Isn’t that ridiculous?
I would appreciated any comments you have, you can be as blunt as you like. Maybe that’s what I need.
Thanks for taking the time to read my mail, and thanks for sharing your story.
After years of bureaucratic wrangling, Secretary Vilsack and the Obama administration are only days away from approving Monsanto’s genetically modified (GMO) alfalfa. If approved, GMO alfalfa will fundamentally undermine the entire organic industry overnight. In addition, the USDA says American consumers don’t care about the contamination of organics.
Please join us in calling on Secretary Vilsack and President Obama to stand up for organic family farmers by rejecting the approval of Monsanto’s GMO alfalfa. Tell them to protect organic integrity and seed biodiversity over corporate profits.
