I threw the kitchen sink at it.

Kitchen Sink

By now you all must know I am not a writer, blogger, vlogger just a person with some very strong beliefs and a big stubborn head, which has definitely improved with age and my cancer diagnosis. In fact, my cancer diagnosis has improved my view on life for the better. I appreciate every day, all day.

However, I am faithful and true to my word and on those occasions where I am not, I suffer.

I promised I would supply a list of what I did to beat my cancer diagnosis. I have covered oxygen, Bio resonance, diet, rifing, meditation and breathing in previous blogs, all the big ones. However, I did a whole lot more.

As time is limited before I head off on my next adventure, below is a list of all the protocols or treatments I tried, at least what I can remember. Please google information until I get time in the new year to supply more detail.

Researcher

Believe me I never foresaw the day I would blog my cancer journey, so if you are reading this you can thank Kate O’Connell’s bill for that.

So here goes, in no particular order;

  • I did a 40-day Kundalini challenge, if the cancer did not kill me there were days I thought Kundalini would.
  • I tried psychotherapy, very, very badly but well worth it.
  • I rebounded.
  • I improved my sleep patterns.
  • I did shaking meditation, which I loved.
  • I used essential oils.
  • I checked my house for geopathic stress.
  • I did a 30-day hydrogen peroxide protocol, that was hard core.
  • I did Bio Magnetism.
  • Daily coffee enemas, 5 plus are recommended but I only ever got to 2 daily.
  • Daily juicing, a huge jug with moringa added.
  • 10-day water fast to kick start my body at a cellular level.
  • Daily herbs and herbal teas.
  • Budwig breakfast every day, which I still do and love, it brings oxygen to the blood.

I am sure I did more which may come to me with time but for now I just want to fulfil the promise I made.

My cancer diagnosis rocked my world but never once did I doubt there was a cure within me. It was not the easiest thing in the world to do and boy was it lonely at times. I can also promise you that if I was to die in the morning, I would have no regrets at the choices I made.

No regrets

Please don’t allow our government to take away your freedom of choice if faced with a cancer diagnosis.

I am so late, sorry.

White Rabbit

Sincere apologies to you all for not blogging for a few weeks, it has been none stop and finding the time was impossible as my new life style insists on 7 hours sleep. There are never enough hours in the day to achieve what I would like to.

As I have another busy week ahead of me this blog will contain information that people were keen to find out about after my talk in Cork.

So, I was asked about The Bill that I am petitioning against. I feel strongly that if this Bill is passed there will be no alternative route available to people with a diagnosis of cancer in Ireland.

This Bill will take away our freedom of choice.

From the very beginning I have said I do not have a cure for cancer, I believe no one does. My cure is changing the terrain of my body so the cancer dies off, then build up my immune system and enjoy life to the full.

The relevant part of the Bill that upsets me is: “Prohibition of certain advertisements 2. (1) No person shall take any part in the publication of any advertisement containing an offer to treat any person or provide any remedy for cancer, or any advice in connection with the treatment of cancer, or which suggests that a medical consultation, diagnosis, treatment or surgical operation is unnecessary for the treatment of cancer. (2) A person who contravenes subsection (1) shall be guilty of an offence. (3) A person who is guilty of an offence under this section shall be liable— (a) on summary conviction to a class A fine, or (b) on conviction on indictment, to a fine not exceeding €1,000,000 or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 5 years or to both. “

(taken directly from the Bill on Oireachtas.ie)

No treatments and no advice.

My experience is having to beg alternative therapists to have anything to do with me when I mention my diagnosis of cancer.

This Bill intends to slam that door shut in my face and anyone else who favours the alternative route.

I would love to know where these people are who claim to have a cure for cancer because I for one would love to hear what they have to say and decide if I want to spend money with them or not.

If you feel as strongly as me please sign and share the petition and keep sharing.

I wrote to every TD in the country and got 3 replies, lolso if you would like freedom of choice when faced with a cancer diagnosis please write directly to your TD.

Now for something more on the fun side, the Festival we spoke about TREW FIELDS FESTIVAL. Wouldn’t it be just awesome to have this in Ireland.

Inspiring is how I would describe it. You can also find them on Facebook.

Unfortunately, the aforementioned purposed Bill would definitely put a stop to this festival ever happening in Ireland.

I plan to attend again this year, if you are going please let me know and we can meet up.

You asked for more information on this poultice

Please do not use this poultice without professional advice.

The DMSO stung like hell for me but we are all different and that is the key when choosing any treatment. I think DMSO may be banned?

Remember this blog is my journey only and should not be used for your treatment. Take professional advice always.

I have in fact stopped using this particular poultice for a while as I don’t want my tumor to break up quickly at present. In my opinion the terrain of my body is not quite ready yet. It can do without a tsunami.

This decision came about because I had my annual Bioresonance after speaking to you in Cork.

It turns out my drainage system is backing up a little so the focus for me for the next month is draining my liver, kidney, lymph’s, intestines etc. I have stopped all killing on my rife machine at present and the focus is on healing.

I started taken Solidago about a week ago until my herbs arrive and what a difference already. I had been badly constipated for a couple of days and since taken Solidago my bowel and urination are almost back to normal function.

The power of herbs and mother-earth.

Perhaps this is the time to mention some websites so you can do your own research.

Also, FB is a great source of information.

  • Cancer healing, the holistic approach.
  • Curing Cancer Naturally-True stories from real people.
  • Cancer Truth
  • The Truth about Cancer
  • How to starve Cancer
  • Breast Cancer Alternatives.

Remember, I am not advising you to go down my route. I am sharing my journey and research with you. I found it very hard to find alternatives in Ireland and it will be impossible if and when The Bill mentioned throughout my blog gets passed as law.

I have to finish by mentioning 5G, it would be wrong of me not to.

It is happening right now, here in Ireland. If you value your health and the health of future generations do your research. So much happening on Facebook.

Are we what we eat? I now know, I am.

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” 

-Hippocrate

Can cancer be cured by diet alone?

There are lots of testimonials out there saying diet can cure cancer.

I personally would not like to depend on just a diet change to cure my cancer diagnosis. All I can say is changing my diet got my energy levels back to better than they ever were, my outlook on life changed and my thoughts on food will never be the same.

Changing my diet, radically in the first year helped my body to detox from years of overeating and abuse, boosted my immune system and got me on the road to recovery. It gave me the much-needed energy to enjoy life, work and research.

I now believe a change in diet is the number one thing to tackle when faced with a diagnosis of cancer. My food bibles now are The Art of Conscious Cooking, Healing with Whole Foods and Square One recipes.

Back in August 2016, I had days I was so tired I struggled to get out of bed.

As I previously mentioned the first few nights of research left me with two words oxygen and acid.

The oxygen was sorted now to tackle the acid.

What Google has to say is: Some studies have shown that acidic environments help cancer cells grow. So, the idea is that a diet high in alkaline foods (high pH) and low in acidic foods will raise the body’s pH levels (make the body more alkaline) and prevent or even cure cancer.Apr 2, 2018

The chart below was basically what I knew about acid/alkaline. Had I ever looked at the foods I ate? no. I bought the best I could afford and enjoyed it. I loved fatty, full-flavored food. I adored meat, in fact a meal was not a meal without meat. Yes, I ate lots of salads, some fruit and veg but loved potatoes, roast, boiled, mashed with lots and lots of butter, yum.

I thought my diet was great, 80% good, 20% naughty.  I loved food and wine, it was my God. I loved cooking and entertaining when it suited me. I wasn’t a fan of processed foods but enjoyed a good take away and loved eating out. I went through stages of sprouting and eating raw at various stages of my life but not on their own, as an accompaniment to the steak or lamb. I ate lots, too much and looking back was obsessed with food, it was my joy. I would eat lunch and an hour later I was planning dinner. I had never been on a diet in my life and never planned to. My 20% naughty was red wine and lots of chocolate. I converted to dark chocolate in my 50’s, not a couple of squares though. I could polish off a large bar of green and blacks in one sitting.

I rode a bike, danced and kept active so I thought I deserved a treat. What was I thinking?

I  never tested my Ph. Levels, I never gave them a thought.

When I did, I got a shock.

Ph.levels          

It was this article How Body pH Can Affect Your Energy Levels that got me testing my ph. levels. I tested them 3 or 4 times a day for months, until I was satisfied with the results. Nowadays I test them once or twice a week to ensure I am more alkaline than acidic.

My diet for the first year may seem a little harsh and impossible but honestly, I just missed my social life around food. As each day passed and my health and overall outlook improved it became easier and easier. The hardest thing for me was the criticism and comments about my weight loss, of which unfortunately, there were many.

So, are you ready?

Upon waking and on an empty stomach I had a glass of water with lemon and baking soda,  2 ginger root tablets and 2 Blockbuster tablets . Then wormwood and black-walnut taken with gentle iron . A cup of warm Graviola tea with a little honey added.

Breakfast was always organic fruit.

Lunch and dinner were always huge salads, all fruits, veg and nuts. Basically, I lived on fruit, veg and nuts for a whole year, either in a salad, a meal or a soup, if I was cold. I did not introduce juicing until the second year and then I followed a vegan diet and somewhere along the line the vegan changed to vegetarian.

Before my lunch I would have more wormwood and walnut with gentle iron, moringa and raw vegetables. With this meal I would also take Vitamin D3Vitamin K2, Vitamin C  and Magnesium.

Between meals I would drink dandelion tea and snack on nuts, fruit and raw vegetables, all organic.

Every day I included apricot-seeds, 10 a day split into 3 doses, I later read that these are more effective when taken with pineapple so I added this to my protocol.

Sometime during the day, I would make time for a 20-minute meditation which inevitably led to sleep. I was exhausted due to all the changes and my body was detoxing fast. Upon waking I had a glass of Flor Essence  which I later discovered was similar to essiac-tea.

I walked daily for a minimum of 20 minutes to keep my lymphatic system flowing.

With my evening meal I took 2 more blockbusters, moringa and raw vegetables and my daily dose of raw garlic ,5 to 6 cloves daily, sliced and left to sit for 15 minutes to release allicin.

Free evenings were spent researching with another cup of graviola tea with honey and a cup of apollo tea.

Before retiring I had my final drink of the night which was baking soda and honey remedy

All of the above were taken with some advice and researched by myself.

I stuck to the above for the first year and never touched sugar and I mean all sugar. I drank wine only when I started to eat out in year 2, to be honest it wasn’t until I was 60 in October 2018 that I drank again on a regular basis. I made the decision to celebrate hard and enjoy it. My celebrations started in September and ended in November, ouch…. but it was fun. Then of course Christmas came. So, In January of this year I upped my game and ate loads of greens and never drink on average more than a bottle of red wine a week.

If I were to feel unwell again the wine would go but for now, I am enjoying my guilty pleasure.

Food

For those of you who believe cancer and diet are not related, I suggest you read the following book. The China Study

I never managed to read the whole book so if you are like me the 10 things you need to know are here.

If that is not convincing enough another great book linking cancer to food by our very own  Dr. John Kelly “Stop feeding your cancer” 

Look him up on FB.

It is a must read, if you don’t, the following is written word by word from the back cover of the book.

“The link between animal protein and cancer became global news with the publication of an international lab study a decade ago. The facts were startling: a diet rich in animal and dairy products was shown to stimulate cancer cell growth.

But conventional medical institutions apparently overlooked the obvious. Counteracting the disease by promoting an animal-protein-free diet could be a revolutionary step in cancer recovery.

Our visionary Dublin doctor choose to investigate the realities of the alternative approach to cancer treatment in a trial conducted with his own patients.

What he learned may change our view of cancer forever.”

Dr. Kelly has since retired, how I wish there were more Doctors like him.

So armed with the above information, a radical change of diet and oxygen covered, the decision was, what next?

The what next turned out to be Bio-Resonance.

Farmer

Just make sure the farmer is 100% organic.

My favourite source of organic fruit and vegetables is Carraignamuc Cottage,delivered weekly to my door. I believe Phil has a weekly market at Pender’s Yard, Stonybatter, Niomh Olaf and Aughrim Town and expanding.

The quality of food and service is exceptional, at affordable prices.

plus-signA must add is, somewhere along the line of research I read that there was no way the foods you eat can alter the pH level of your blood. The body’s pH is a very tightly regulated system. If you change your diet, you may see changes in the pH of your saliva or urine because these are waste products, but there’s no way you could ever eat enough that it really impacts your blood.

So is that true, maybe, but I also read rifing and oxygen can impact the ph. of ones blood.  Rifing was and is still part of my protocol and I will cover the subject in a later Blog.

You know what is coming next? If you have any interest in alternative health for cancer, please, please sign and share my petition.

You’re doing just fine.” 
― Charlotte Eriksson

Healing choices are for each and every individual to decide on.

Before I begin recalling my alternative journey, I must stress I do not have a cure for cancer. What I do have is a determination, belief and will to find MY cure.

Library

Ironically after so much research, I came across a wonderful website last week, that basically has all the information that took me 30 months to find. It is a fantastic read. I am not encouraging any of you to take my chosen route but for those of you who are researching and contemplating it, this website is brilliant, thekeystocancer.com

If you are at the beginning of your journey ask someone you know who has an interest in your health and the time to help with your research, be it the conventional or alternative route, or both.

I know when I started my journey it was difficult to take it all in and still is to this day

It is important for me to tell you that never once and I mean never once did any of the alternative therapists or people I met ever say they had a cure for cancer. The truth is that some of them treated me for nothing, yes, I said, nothing, no money.

You will find no anger from me going forward, hopefully. Maybe the odd rant about the Bill planned to prosecute any alternative therapists who claim they have a cure for cancer. I don’t think I can put that Bill to the back of my mind just yet, so please sign and share and share again. (You will find a link at the bottom of each blog page.)

I have tried and will continue to experiment with many different protocols. They all offered me something, some more than others. I am very open to experimentation. especially if it makes me feel good.

Some of the treatments were/are pleasurable, some, were/are challenging but not many. Lots are time-consuming and very few, awful.

My cancer was diagnosed in August 2016 and my alternative journey started on 19th September of the same year.

It will continue until my tumor has left my body. Which reminds me of one of the first books I read.

Book Carni Hazen

From my initial research which is mostly from memory, I used Google, YouTube, and books. As previously covered one of the biggest things that hit me first was, cancer cannot live where there is oxygen.

So, to me it was obvious, get oxygen quick, whilst I did more research.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy involves breathing oxygen in a pressurised chamber in which atmospheric pressure is raised up to three times higher than normal, so to me that means my lungs get 3 times more oxygen.

Do whatever you can to stop the cancer spreading, so on Monday 19th September 2016 I entered an oxygen chamber for the first time to attend  2 treatments a day for the next 5 days and then 1 treatment weekly.

I received oxygen for at least 18 months, maybe more.

I would recommend it highly and if you don’t trust me, trust the Doctors.

Cancer cannot thrive where there is oxygen,

Oxygen Deficiency and Disease
Dr. Otto Warburg Two-time Nobel Laureate
Winner of two Nobel Prizes for Cancer Research in the mid-1930’s.
“Cancer has only one prime cause. It is the replacement of normal oxygen respiration of the cells of the body by an anaerobic (i.e., oxygen-deficient) cell respiration”.

 Dr. F.M. Eugene Blasse Ph.D., author “Oxygen Therapy: It’s Foundation Aim  & Results”
“Oxidation Is the source of life. Its lack causes impaired health or disease, its cessation, death,”

Dr. Stephen Levin, Renowned Molecular Biologist, and Geneticist Author, Oxygen Deficiency: A Concomitant to All Degenerative Illness” “In all serious disease states we find a concomitant low oxygen state. Low oxygen in the body tissues is a sure indicator for disease… Hypoxia, or lack of oxygen in the tissues, is the fundamental cause for all degenerative disease.“Oxygen Is the source of life to all cells.”

Dr. John Muntz, Nutritional Scientist “Starved of oxygen the body will become ill, and if this persists, it will die. I doubt if there is an argument about that.

Dr. W. Spencer Way, from the Journal of the American Association of Physicians
“Insufficient oxygen means insufficient biological energy that can result in anything from mild fatigue to life-threatening disease. The link between insufficient oxygen and disease has now been firmly established”.

Dr. Harry Goldblatt, Journal of Experimental Medicine

“Lack of oxygen clearly plays a major role in causing cells to become cancerous.”

  Dr. Arthur C. Guyton, M.D., author “The Textbook on Medical Physiology”
“All chronic pain, suffering and diseases are caused by a lack of oxygen at the cell level.”

 Dr. Wendell Hendricks, Hendricks Research Foundation
“Cancer is a Condition within the body where the oxidation has become so depleted that the body cells have degenerated beyond physiological control. Similarly, the true cause of allergy is lowered oxidation process within the body, causing the affected individual to be sensitive to foreign substances entering the body. Only when the oxidation mechanism is restored to its original highest state of efficiency can the sensitivity be eliminated.”

Dr. Albert Wahl
“Simply put, disease Is due to a deficiency in the oxidation process of the body, leading to an accumulation of toxins. These toxins would ordinarily be burned in normal metabolic functioning.”

Dr. Parris M. Kidd, Ph.D. author, “Antioxidant Adaptation
“Oxygen plays a pivotal role in the proper functioning of the Immune system.”

 

My experience with oxygen was a success. How I came to that conclusion was simple. 3 months before I got my diagnosis, I was extremely breathless. Now I am back to doing whatever I please with breath to spare.

I met so many lovely people in the chamber with wonderful success stories.

I really enjoyed my time in the chamber, on with the headphones and zone out.The only downside I found with oxygen was I was tired for the first few months and very, very hungry. A small price to pay for great benefits.

Some weeks I actually miss it and I know if I had a chamber closer, spare time and extra cash, I would make it my weekly treat.

Now I rely on my very own Blood Oxygen Saturation & Heart Rate Monitor to check my oxygen levels, a beautiful gift from a wonderful person.

There are many articles written about HBOT, some glowing, some not so glowing.

I know it helped me greatly and I met a lot of people in the chamber who hold the same view as me.

It is also worth noting that HBOT can assist whilst undergoing chemotherapy and radiation. I believe this should be an add-on to conventional medicine to help with the healing process,  bloodjournal.org/content/126/23/1399

I am including a few interesting articles about Hyperbaric Oxygen as I am shocked that I never knew about this wonderful treatment up until September 2016.

My lesson learnt is I am a very shallow breather and it took a diagnosis of cancer to instil in me the importance of breathing.

Learn how to breath deeply now.
