Start Healing By Detoxing

Every day, our bodies are assaulted by toxins, herbicides, fungicides, heavy metals, and pollutants that are changing the natural workings of our cellular regeneration. This toxicity is causing us to have all sorts of issues with inflammation, auto immune diseases, Cancer as well as other illnesses.

If we just look at deodorants, there are aluminum compounds, propylene glycol, Triclosan, and Steareths that will cause havoc inside you. Read more here:

Look up information on other typical personal care items and you’ll see that danger is all around us. The best weapon against the onslaught is knowledge. Here are some of the precautions for shampoos:

1 Corinthians 1…   4 comments

1 Corinthians 13:13

“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”

When I first heard from my Physician, “You have Cancer” I felt a flush through my face.  He must’ve seen my reaction because he tried to reassure me that there were things that we could do and that Prostate Cancer is slow growing.  It was during this time that the Power of this quote from the Bible really came to life for me.

I told my daughter about my diagnosis right away.  She is my personal “concierge” doctor and I knew she would guide me through this part of my journey.  Until I knew more about the extent of this foreign invader’s incursion, I chose to keep it from anyone except my wife and my daughter and a trusted friend who I knew had gone through this same journey.  Having these people in my corner helped give me some comfort as I found out more answers.

Once I knew that it had not metastasized beyond my prostate, I felt confident to let my sons, siblings and the rest of the world know.  I wanted to let everyone know to stir a Tsunami of Prayer, good ideas, moral support and love to wash over me.

The day after my son Raf knew, he came to wake me at 8 AM.  Yes, I know, for some of you, that is sleeping in.  He put a glass of fresh juice in my hand and told me he had gone shopping for new products for us to use (more on that in an upcoming article).  He also shared with me a book he had gotten from the library, “Healing, The Gerson Way.”  He also told me about some other Alternative Medicine therapies we could use as well.  He hugged me and told me that we were going to beat this, and I felt confident that with love like this in my corner, the Cancer didn’t have a chance.

My wife, Olga has been my partner and is there when I need her help and support.  This therapy is time consuming and requires discipline and commitment, but what I really like about it is that it makes more sense to me to become healthier to beat this enemy of mine rather than weaken myself to beat this enemy.

I have gotten so many wonderful, loving, nurturing, practical, and useful comments and ideas from so many of my dear friends.  I am not alone in this, and THAT makes ALL the difference.

I was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer in November 2013.  My doctor gave me two options, one of 3 types of surgery, or a combination hormone therapy combined with radiation.  Side effects of both would most likely be the same, erectile dysfunction and incontinence.  The risks of infection are also tied to surgery.  I’d seen enough horror stories in life to know this was a real threat.  Although the doctor DID say that the success rate of surgery and hormone/radiation therapy were about equal, I didn’t like the sound of irradiating myself on purpose and making myself sicker in the hopes of killing the cancer.  The radiation would go on for 2 years.  But in BOTH cases, even once the cancer was gone, I would have to be checked for cancer periodically to make sure it didn’t come back.

I am a trained engineer.  I learned root cause analysis at the best companies in the world, and I knew that the options only dealt with the symptoms not the underlying root cause.  I was determined to do my own research to find a better way, one that would get me healthier instead of sicker.

Don’t get me wrong, western medicine saves lots of people.  My doctor is a good doctor and he seems to have compassion for his patients.  But going to war with an enemy who wants to take your life and only going into battle with half your army and half your weapons seems to me to be a recipe for less than satisfactory results.  I’ll take “shock and awe” any day of the week.

I have chosen the Gerson therapy which I am adding other natural methods to.  I have my daughter Yvonne and my cousin Maria, both MDs that are my advisors along the way to give me a safety net.

I am optimistic and will share my results as they become available.
