If you dont take chemo you will die in 5 years. And if I do take chemo how long will I live? Shoulder shrug, no answer, no guarantees. What would you do?
Just over 3 weeks ago I had a girl same age as my youngest daughter Gilly come to me for a nutrition consultation. She has cancer and has been in the system for 3 years when she was first diagnosed. It started with ovarian so a full hysterectomy, oophorectomy then the first round of chemo was the treatment. During the first chemo she became super sensitive, paranoid and her ability to control herself went. She ended up in Mount Carmel, the psychiatric hospital on the island of Malta. Her dad had just lost his wife, her mother and now his daughter was diagnosed with cancer plus the added stress of her appearing to lose her mind with the drugs.
She does not remember all of it clearly but it created depression and a deep seated fear of chemotherapy..
Then 2 years later it recurred and once again chemo was the only thing on offer. At this stage she was desperate to try other ways but failed to find the necessary support and ended up taking another 6 rounds, much against her deepest intuition. Then less that a year later the cancer has spread. Now a major operation is one of the options on the table. Removing part of the intestine and liver. She is waiting to see if that is an option. If not that then more chemo, that's all they have. She was adamant she was having no more chemo and the oncologist shouted at her if you don't take chemo you will be dead in 5 years. Charming.
I listen to the story stunned as usual at the systems idea of healing. The fact she has lost her mum, I think what if this was my child, AND the fact that has already had 2 chemos which have clearly not worked makes me sad and my fighter instinct kicks in.
I said well what I would do if it was me, I would go on the Gerson therapy tomorrow, full force and intention, I would ask to delay the op for a few weeks to see if I could make an impact on this disease. It is no secret that I have no faith in our conventional cancer care, it never addresses the root cause or even talks about the hundreds of thousands of people who heal in other ways. They say there is no data which is just a downright lie. Plus I have a strong feeling that she has candida which could be the origin of a lot of her problems and insidious fungus that can destroy our health.
I had no idea at this point that she desperately wanted to try a natural way and that I had just given her the courage with the possibility of full support. When I take clients on I interact with them daily at first until they get confident and sure about their healing rituals. She had never felt safe and supported enough to try it naturally, now she did.
We arranged that she would come back for a releasing session 3 days later. During that time her story went over and over in my mind. It makes me rage to think how she was treated and spoken too. Her poor dad too and brothers, cancer does not just affect one person. I was in an unusual situation at home. No guests, no airbnb, no friends. I was in this big flat alone. I thought about her detox and guessed it would be pretty brutal, I sent her for a candida test to see what she was potentially going to have to get through. I decided to invite her to stay for a month so that I could fully support her in this quest to change this disease path. I pondered the consequences of this briefly but really felt my house was empty for a reason and that reason was to support this gutsy, strong spiritual being. I invited her, she accepted and moved in on sunday the 11th September. Her dad was bringing her up, I was keen to meet him to put his mind at rest, I cannot imagine all that the poor man has been through. He was very calm, seemed happy that she was trying this approach and it all felt right and good to me. My only concern was the candida test, it showed 40% when it should sit at 10. This was the highest I had ever seen and was contributing to her disease big time. Its even possible it caused it on a physical level, we may never know.
Candida itself can be remedied in a fairly short time but the big problem is the die off. It can be horrendous! So I was glad she was going to be with me should this happen. And it did. 2 am she knocked my door with the pain and looked terrible and frightened. In a strange house with a strange granny taking the road less travelled it was a lot for her to cope with. Then the fear that the pain was related to the cancer, which I knew it was not, but I understood why it scared her. We drank some lemon and ginger tea and chatted for a bit, but she never slept a wink the entire night. The next couple of days were a struggle for her. The body was screaming and the detox had well and truly begun. Under normal circumstances you would take it slower, but we had a point to prove and did not want to waste time. Then it passed, she started to laugh and chat and the pain subsided. Every day we are releasing, tapping, visualising, meditating, we even did some qi gong yesterday and chanting. She is experiencing fogginess and some sadness which is to be expected with such a drastic change of lifestyle, people and food. Not only has she changed her external enviroment but her internal one too.
Some of her family and friends were not supportive to start with. Who is she? What qualifications does she have? Can you trust her? 200% she answered. Someone even said she was committing suicide if she did not take the chemo, others opinion and points of views can weigh heavy.
Amazing the things people that love you say.
I understand the questions, if it was my sister or friend I would want to know too. When you believe in the system you find what I do weird and possibly dangerous simply because you do not understand. Its against your belief system. And the ego holds on super tight to the BS the belief systems.
Since watching too many of my loved ones die through the "treatments" I have searched for another way. Is it guaranteed? I believe and know that when you respect, love and listen to your body it will do its best to regain balance. There are never any guarantees in life but to quote Sabrina, she would rather die up in Wardija drinking juice than in Mater Dei having her 3rd lot of chemo.
I believe 100% she can heal or I would never have invited her into my home. She is as brave, strong and determined as anyone I have ever seen, and that's what you need to be. She throws away others beliefs and points of view that she does not want to take as her own, this is where most people fall down. They cave to others needs and deny their own.
She has also been put on a lot of medication due to the mental and emotional damage the treatment did to her. I thought it was just an anti depressant but she has a concoction of drugs on a daily basis that simply cannot serve the body long term. She wants and needs to get off most if not all of them, so that is another challenge she will be facing.
I will do everything in my power to help her heal her body. Over 2 decades of learning and researching for the answer to my questions. Why does your immune system let you down? How can we heal the body naturally?
We are making some vlogs. Follow her journey, please feel free to message your support and ideas. Together we can move out of the dark ages.
Up here on the hill she has no temptations, beautiful views, time and space for herself. Its another world and that is what most of us need when drastic change has to happen.
We need a healing community, a place where those of us who believe in the body can come and learn how to recreate health and happiness.
