7/7/15 Lake Ponchatrain Beach, approx. 10:00 a.m. – On days like today, beautiful sunny days, days so beautiful and serene that it looks like it’s been brushed by an artist; that I am filled with gratitude and peace. It’s on days like today, that I am reminded of the harsh words of the oncologist that the hospital assigned to me last year, “If you don’t follow a chemotherapy/radiation protocol, you will not be here next summer.” Those words continue to ring in my ear to this very day.
It was well over a year ago when the symptoms (chronic diarrhea, blood in stool, very low energy) started. Being a naturalist, I immediately began to change my diet and sought alternative help by going to see an acupuncturist, which helped tremendously and reduced some of the symptoms. But unbeknownst to me, there was a tumor located in my lower colon/ upper rectum area that had been there for months. It wasn’t until August of last year that I was officially diagnosed with Colorectal Cancer. What they told me was that the tumor itself was cancerous, but the cancer had not spread, it was contained in the tumor. I knew I wanted to heal naturally, but I was having a difficult time finding a doctor who would help me.
The doctors finally persuaded me to at least do the radiation in order to shrink the tumor faster. After five consecutive days of 8:30 a.m. radiation treatments, I knew I’d made a terrible decision. It was a quality of life that made me want to give up. The total lack of energy worsened, the bloody/watery stool (non-fecal), no appetite and constant gas and uncomfortable feeling made me miserable to say the least and depression had creeped in with a mighty force. I remember laying in my bed one morning and deciding that I was ready to die. Without telling anyone, I began to prepare for my transition.
It was after speaking with a dear friend who had personal knowledge of detox fasting and the many health benefits and testimonials of people cured of many diseases that I decided to go back to living a holistic life and to heal naturally without the radiation. Immediately after making this decision, the sadness, anger and depression subsided and I began my quest to fight the Cancer holistically. On October 9, 2014, two days after learning about Detox International products, Brother Zachery Ramsey walked into my bedroom, held my hand and told me that everything was going to be alright. I believed him. He became very hands on assisting me with the healing miracle of detox fasting. I began the natural protocol of taking Detox International herbs and minerals, juicing, and kemetic breathing exercises. After only 3 days of treatment, my energy level began to rise and the healing process began. This natural healing protocol requires lots of discipline. I took 11-12 different herbs and minerals daily and juiced 3 times a day. I practiced the breathing exercises and remained in constant prayer and meditation.
On January 5th of this year, the doctors removed the tumor. The cancer still contained only in the mass that had invaded my body and the increase in health and energy levels and the fact that I was walking proof that the natural protocol I’d chosen had kept the cancer from spreading and aided in what seemed like a miracle turnaround; happy and seemingly confused at the same time, they decided to do the surgery. Tumor gone, I am now CANCER FREE.
So, approximately one year after hearing those awful words, “You won’t be here next summer…,” here I sit, on this sandy beach of Lake Ponchatrain as I look to the heavens and say with all humility and gratitude, “It’s next summer and I’m still here!”
