Let me tell you how this all began…………. AGAIN.
Early October, I began to experience wheezing which within a few weeks developed into both wheezing coupled with a cough. Well of course, I thought nothing of it only simply that I was destine to have asthma due to the fact that it runs in my family. You know the old “family history” thing. As time passed, both symptoms got worst. I just figured I would have my primary physician to check me out during my annual in November. I just knew a few breathing treatments would solve all my problems; cancer was the absolute farthest thing from my mind. I not only had my breast removed from the previous cancer, but I had chemo and I was ONLY 39 years YOUNG!!!
Well on November 2, Moya and I went to dinner with Bill and Shasta at Taco Mac. The coughing was extremely bad. I tried my best to mask it by drinking water and stuffing my face with cheesy tortilla chips and salsa to no avail. Even after we left the restaurant, the coughing continued through the night. I was awaken by coughing the next morning which produced a large blood clot. ALARMED, is the only word I have for that very moment. So off to the emergency room we went.
As I checked into the emergency room wheezing, coughing, and now short of breath I must still say to you that cancer was still nowhere remotely in my thought process. I guess I had to be nervous about something though because my blood pressure was 170/100. (that’s right..Wow) The first test was a chest x-ray which came back fine however with my history of breast cancer the ER physician order a CT Scan of the Chest. In the mean time he also ordered a 20 minute breathing treatment which made me feel a lot better. This helped with the shortness of breath and made me a little less nervous.
We waited patiently in the room for the results. The nurses were very nice and attentive. About an hour later the ER physician came in and began with “I have some not so good news, your cancer has metastasized to the lung”. The radiologist noted 2 masses and an enlarged lymph node. Although I was in complete shock, I was able to tell him that I knew it was in the right lung. I could feel the pressure on the right side when I had difficulty breathing. As you can imagine, I tried not to cry but was not successful. I couldn’t stop. My husband, being the gentle and loving person he is, tried to console me while remaining calm and strong just for me. As I begin to draw back the tears, I had the same over whelming thought the first time I was told I have cancer: How am I going to tell Toia!! I never ever wanted her to have to imagine a world without her mother especially at such a young age. I may not be eligible for the mother or wife of the millennium award, but I know they both love me with every fiber in their body and seeing her or my husband hurting is simply not a goal nor option.
After spending 7 hours in the emergency room, we left headed home to gather our thoughts. We still had to hold on to the possibility that the doctors were wrong because they were not able to perform a biopsy of masses or lymph nodes. One thing I can tell you for sure, we were on one accord. We are going to trust God, after all He is in control. Then, we came home immediately to cleaned out the pantry and the refrigerator. Any and all processed foods had to go! All meat and diary products were “outta here”. If we could not readily identify the ingredients on the label it had to go. Genesis 1:29 God Said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food”. After having cancer the first time, we began to research causes of cancer after the fact. I was in such a hurry to get rid of the cancer in the breast that I didn’t take time to get to know this enemy and plan my strategy. I long knew the best way to defeat the enemy is to know its ways and tactics. Well needless to say, I had a biopsy on the 19th which came back positive for lung cancer. And I knew after going through chemo once in life, I vowed not to every do this again. This has to be one of the most debilitating things ever created!!!

In our research, we came across a physician by the name of Dr. Max Gerson (click to learn more). He was a true pioneer of his time. Dr. Gerson in his years of research and treating his patients knew that chronic degenerative diseases were treated symptomatically by modern medicine and that the root of the disease was not being addressed. He further learned that all chronic degenerative diseases were a result of toxicity and deficiency of nutrients in the body. The Gerson Therapy is a natural treatment that activates the body’s extraordinary ability to heal itself with an organic vegetarian diet, raw juices, natural supplements, and coffee enemas (yes you read that correctly). Dr. Gerson may not have realized it at the time, but he was implementing God’s initial plan.
We also watched a ton of documentaries on Netflix which included: The Beautiful Truth and Dying to Have Known. I will list more of them in future post. In one documentary there was a short cartoon that shows a little boy falling and scraping his knee. As the cartoon plays out, the commentator reminds us that when we were young and hurt ourselves the body healed whether or not mom put a band-aid on it. Well, the body is able do the exact same thing on the inside provided you give it the proper nutrients and assist in the removal toxins (coffee enemas).
I truly trust in God when He firmly said, “I will supply all your needs”. I have decided to follow the Gerson Therapy to remove cancer from my body. This is my “works” while my faith is in God. I promise to share our new found wisdom given to us by God. I encourage you to began doing a little research on your own. You will truly be amazed. The word of God says that a man shall perish from the lack of knowledge – don’t let this be you.
