Hitting the Pause Button...

Right here... in the middle of our 31 Day Challenge, we are hitting the Pause Button...

And taking Dad on a trip.  The kind of trip that makes breathing easier and living richer.  It has been a hard year and it's time to redeem those miserable, gray days!

We are boarding the Celebrity Summit today for a 7 day cruise in the Southern Caribbean...

Dad and his kids, together, celebrating life with all we've got!

It is his favorite thing to do... and we are planning on some legacy living out on the high seas :-)

Pictures and stories sure to come in the days ahead.  And while we're taking a Pause on this 31 Day Challenge, there is so much still to share on The Truth About Cancer.   We will be back in 7 days to finish up what we've begun... promise!

Until then... Bon Voyage and Happy Sailing!

Dirt Cheap!

I've always loved a bargain.

Especially when it's unexpected and you just happened to be at the right place at the right time?  Don't you want to tell everyone?

Well, the Dirt Cheap Protocol is sort of like that...

It's unexpected (as in a cancer treatment that's cheap???)

I just happened to be at the right place at the right time (The Truth About Cancer documentary)

And I sure want to tell you all about it...

This alternative treatment plan is actually a multi-step process designed mostly for patients who can't afford or choose not to use more expensive treatments or protocols.

From what I can tell in researching the Dirt Cheap Protocol it definitely is much more economical than many treatments, running in the neighborhood of $500-600/month.

So what exactly is this ridiculously cheap and unusually named treatment?

It was designed by R. Webster Kehr and here at his link he shares a little more about the protocol:

"Cancer is caused by microbes that are INSIDE the cancer cells. SEVERAL of the treatments in this protocol are designed specifically to kill microbes inside the cancer cells to revert the cancer cells into normal cells. This can be done quickly and safely.

Fighting cancer is like fighting a fire. The more fire trucks you have the better the chance to put the fire out. In this protocol, you have an unlimited number of “fire trucks” at your disposal to deal with the cancer.

Many of these “fire trucks” are trying to do the same thing – kill the microbes inside the cancer cells. But other individual treatments in this protocol are also killing cancer cells and are doing other things such as building the immune system.

When using this protocol, because so many individual items are being used, it is important to follow these two rules:
  • At least 14 items which are actually part of the Dirt Cheap Protocol must be included,
  • Use only ONE highly alkaline protocol per day.
The patients need to use a combination of very inexpensive protocols which individually, and collectively, are very effective against cancer. That is what this protocol is all about.

Literally, this protocol is a list of highly effective, but dirt cheap, alternative cancer treatments!! However, there is a lot of synergism built into these protocols making this protocol far more effective than its individual parts!!

As with any “protocol,” a person should take ALL of the individual treatments every day. If you cannot obtain one or two of the products, for any reason, use all of the individual treatments that you can obtain!!
This protocol is not a Smorgasbord, it is a complete cancer protocol.

Some of the items that can be included in this overall cancer therapy are:

The Kelmun protocol (baking soda/maple syrup)
Beta Glucan
Kelley Metabolic Protocol (recommended for pancreatic cancer patients)
Three Honey Protocols (using the honey with turmeric, ginger and cinnamon)

Somewhere in the middle of Webster's detailed article on the Dirt Cheap Protocol he includes the following piece of advice:

"When using this protocol it is very important to designate someone in the family to really study this protocol and all the options that it has. Someone also has to keep track of what is actually taken."

I would highly agree!  It has taken me the better part of the day to read through and research this one, deceptively simple, but unquestionably powerful treatment!

And that's a Dirt Cheap bargain for today...

Love you,

Everything but the Kitchen Sink...

Over the past few weeks we've spent much of our time researching the Top 3 Alternative Pancreatic Cancer Therapies (according to Jane, you know, nothing scientific, just researching our hearts out and hearing good news with these 3, lots of good news, as in survivors... cancer survivors...thus the list of the top 3)

But The Truth About Cancer documentary was filled with a wealth of information, more than just these 3, for patients desiring a more natural, non-toxic treatment for their cancer.

I couldn't possibly do justice to all that information in this 31 Day Challenge... trust me, you want to watch the documentary for yourself!

However, there are just a few therapies and treatments that deserve mention here.  Let me run thru them quickly (Farmer husband laughs...) and then include links for you to research more in depth should the protocols interest you.

Ozone Therapy

Ozone Therapy is a treatment where high levels of oxygen are put into the body to treat the cancer.     Otto Warburg (Nobel Prize winner) was the one who discovered that cancer cells could not survive when in contact with oxygen.  Because cancer cells are anaerobic, they will die when exposed to oxygen.   The two best known and most effective methods to inject oxygen into the body are Infusion Bottle and Ozone IV, both of which must be administered by a medical practioner.

There are several clinics that offer these Ozone Therapy treatments:

New Hope Medical Center

The Nevada Center

Hope4Cancer Institute

Thermal Therapy

Thermal Therapy (also called Hyperthermia or Thermotherapy) is a type of cancer treatment in which body tissue is exposed to high temperatures (up to 113°F). Research has shown that high temperatures can damage and kill cancer cells, usually with minimal injury to normal tissues.  By killing cancer cells and damaging structures within cells, thermal therapy may shrink cancer tumors.

And here's an interesting article at Pancreatica on Microwave "Surgery" for Cancer of the Pancreas.

In Ty Bollinger's book The Truth About Cancer, he shares some very compellinging information about Thermal or Heat Therapy...

"You’re probably already familiar with what happens when you contract a serious illness and your body goes into hyper drive by reacting with a fever, or high temperature. This hyperthermic response is the body’s way of naturally fighting the infection, and contrary to popular belief, it shouldn’t be minimized with ibuprofen and other drugs because it’s a good thing, despite being uncomfortable.

As it turns out, hyperthermia is also beneficial in the treatment of cancer. In 1893, Dr. William B. Coley discovered how the body’s hyperthermic response to bacteria can also help kill cancer cells."

He finished with this quote from Parmenides, the famous Greek physician who more than 2,000 years ago demonstrated a solid understanding of heat therapy and its importance in warding off disease: “Give me a chance to create fever, and I will cure any disease.”

Here are a few of the clinics that offer Thermal Therapy for cancer patients:

Cancer Treatment Centers of America

Contretas Oasis of Hope Clinic

Black Seed Oil Extract

Black cumin seed oil has proven to have effective anti-cancer properties.  Black seed oil, also called Nigella sativa, works to inhibit cancer cell activity and can even kill some types of cancer cells. 

The extract from the Black cumin seed is called thymoquinone which has been shown to have powerful benefits for various inflammatory diseases including liver cancer, melanoma skin cancer, pancreatic cancer, cervical cancer, breast cancer, bone cancer, stomach cancer, lymphoma, prostate cancer, colon cancer, and brain cancer.

Black seed oil extract (Black Cumin seed) has been proven to cure pancreatic cancer by killing off the existing cancer cells and preventing further growth. According to the study conducted in 2008, by Dr. Hwyda Arafat, Thomas Jefferson University , 80 percent of the pancreatic cancer cells were killed with the use of thymoquinone, an extract of Nigella sativa.

That's some powerful stuff!

The Nigella-Sativa website shares an abundance of information on this very intriguing protocol.


Curcumin is the yellow pigment extracted from turmeric and is one of three known curcuminoids in turmeric. Curcumin has demonstrated incredible anti-cancer benefits. In countries where people eat turmeric daily at about 100 to 200 mg (roughly 1-2 teaspoons) over long periods of time, research has shown there to be lower rates of certain types of cancer, including pancreatic cancer.

In fact, over 2,000 published studies have shown curcumin (turmeric) combats cancers of the breast, prostate, liver, colon, lung, pancreas and more. Many of these studies have shown curcumin actually stops cancer cells from dividing. Curcumin has also been shown to trigger apoptosis, or programmed cell death, which is the body’s natural and necessary way of ridding itself from damaged cells.

Curcumin is not soluble in water, only in fat. Therefore, it’s best to combine turmeric with a healthy oil such as extra virgin olive or coconut oil whenever possible in recipes.

When combined with other powerful nutrients such as fish oil, olive or coconut oil, and/or black pepper, curcumin’s anti-cancer effects are further amplified as it becomes more readily available to the body.

I am reminded of Hippocrates wise statement  “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”

Over at Chris Wark's website ChrisBeatCancer, he highlights the Top Four Cancer Fighting Spices and Curcumin (turmeric) takes a leading role.  Definitely worth investigating.  Not only is it delicious, but it's healthy!

And so I leave you with those small tidbits of info today ... with my stomach growling I'm thinking it's time to go dig out some Turmeric and start spicing up my life just a bit!

My Love,

A Little Good News...

... and a little bad news...

You know yesterday... when we were getting all excited about Rigvir, the promising new virotherapy treatment for cancer.

Well, it's all still good, the part about Rigvir still being a promising new virotherapy treatment for cancer... Whewww!  I was just a little worried there.

But, the bad news...

It is only being offered in a few select places around the globe.  Like Latvia, Georgia (as in the country, not the state) and Mexico.  Which of course, I guess, is only bad news if you don't live in Latvia, Georgia or Mexico.

As I watched The Truth About Cancer documentary several months ago (you know, the one that prompted this 31 Day Challenge...yes that one!) one of the doctors interviewed was Dr. Antonio Jimenez...

An amazing communicator, as well as a dedicated holistic doctor, Dr. Jimenez founded the Hope4Cancer Center in Baja California, Mexico... and his clinic has recently begun to offer the Rigvir protocol among other natural, non-toxic therapies.

One of their patients, Rivi, shares her story with the devastating diagnosis of pancreatic cancer and her journey with Hope4Cancer:

"SAN DIEGO, May 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- "She has no evidence of cancer of any kind!" In the encouraging wake of her doctor's words, Rivi Litvin stepped out of a leading Los Angeles hospital, knowing that her prayers had been answered.

A year earlier, in September 2012, Rivi approached her doctors with persistent symptoms of abdominal pain, nausea and jaundice. Their fear that these may be symptoms of pancreatic cancer were realized when imaging confirmed the presence of the disease in her bile duct and pancreas.

Five-year stage 4 pancreatic cancer life expectancy is dismal (between 1 to 15%). Rivi opted for the Whipple procedure, during which her gallbladder and parts of her pancreas, liver and duodenum were removed. But her cancer roared back within 4 months, now spread to her liver. She was given 6-12 months to live.

A teacher of Jewish faith and a woman of unshakeable determination, Rivi, with her daughter Tova, searched everywhere for options. One clinic in Mexico stood out in the crowd. The moment she met Hope4Cancer® Institute's Medical Director, Dr. Antonio Jimenez, Rivi knew that her search was over.

Hope4Cancer® is known for its principle-based approach to integrative medicine. They offer non-toxic, whole body personalized treatment programs that include cancer busters such as Sono-Photo Dynamic Therapy, Hyperthermia and the Latvian cancer virotherapy, Rigvir®. A"Pac-man"-like non-pathogenic virus, Rigvir® seeks and destroys cancer cells, leaving healthy cells untouched.

Rivi's personalized program strangled the blood supply feeding her liver lesions. By September 2013, the lesions had become undetectable.  Her Los Angeles doctors confirmed: there was no trace of cancer!

April 14, 2014.   Rivi invited Dr. Jimenez and some of his colleagues to her home where she hosted a Passover Seder feast. For hours, her fascinated audience heard her share the philosophy of Passover.  Her palpable gratitude filled the room as she shared how the plague of cancer had, for a seemingly endless moment, paused on her, only to pass her over.

Today Rivi is not just alive, but thriving.  Her Los Angeles doctors told her she did not need any further monitoring. But unwilling to be trapped in complacency, Rivi remains steadfast with her treatments, following the principles she learned at the clinic that helped save her life."

And I would call that a little good news!  Rivi is another pancreatic cancer success story.  Alive and thriving...

Do I know that Rigvir works for pancreatic cancer?  Not personally, no... However, if you ask me if I know that chemotherapy and radiation works for pancreatic cancer my answer would be a heartbreaking, very personal, NO...

As I have shared over and over, there are so few success stories when it comes to pancreatic cancer.  It is taking our loved ones at a staggering pace, too many and much, much too soon. 

Through our journey with mom, we have slowly come to believe that evidence-based medicine is described best by the pancreatic cancer survivors themselves.  In other words, what did you do to survive this horrific cancer... for me, that is evidence that it is working...and therapies that we need to talk about!

The bottom line here today?  Surviving pancreatic cancer is more than just a little good news... It is the very best news I can think of!  And definitely a little Hope for the journey

Graced to be walking this road together,

Rigvir... A Virus meant for Good?

It sounds like something out of a sci-fi novel.  A Star Trek-like medical miracle.  Inject a small amount of virus-rich serum into the patient and wait as it scouts out and attacks the cancer cells, leaving the host basically none the worse for wear... this cancer treatment sounds like a piece of cake!  

Is it even possible?

The Cancer Virotherapy Center says Yes!

It would seem that Virotherapy is ushering in a New Era in Cancer Treatment...

Starting to get just a little excited??

On the Cancer Virotherapy website this virus-attack method is described as "an effective cancer treatment that uses oncotropic and oncolytic (seek and destroy) virus with the ability of a virus to find and destroy malignant cells in the body. Virotherapy is gentle and safe treatment, it improves survival and quality of life of patients."

It is an exciting advance in the options for cancer patients and is definitely worth mentioning here on our 31 Day Challenge!

The developer of Rigvir, Aina Muceniece, shares his thoughts about the Rigvir treatment:

"To treat cancer with a virus is a fantastic idea which occurred in the beginning of the last century. Before the World War I, cancer was already treated with the rabies virus vaccine and other viruses. I managed to find a virus which is not dangerous for a man. Unlike the chemotherapy and the radiation therapy, this medicine does not leave such serious consequences in patient's organs."

And for a bit more in-depth explanation of the Rigvir treatment, here is an excerpt from Lee Euler at CancerDefeated:

"One of the world’s leading holistic cancer doctors, Tony Jimenez, M.D., was a featured speaker at the (Truth About Cancer) 2014 conference. He revealed a breakthrough in virotherapy, telling the audience: “You are the first people in the United States who are hearing this! This will blow your mind. I’ve never seen anything that produces results like this!”
The breakthrough is a “virotherapy” called Rigvir. It’s was developed in Latvia, where it has passed all phases of clinical trials on almost 2,000 patients. The results of the clinical trials are convincing and impressive. For example, stomach cancer patients in the control group had a 24 percent survival rate. The patients treated with Rigvir survived at double that rate –48 percent.
Rigvir was registered in Latvia in 2004 as an anti-cancer drug. A prominent Latvian oncologist disparaged Rigvir until he got cancer. After he used it to get rid of his cancer, he became one of Rigvir’s biggest cheerleaders.
Rigvir works on a wide variety of cancers including melanoma, colorectal, pancreatic, bladder, kidney, prostate, lung, uterine, lymphosarcoma, etc. It triggers an immune response and seeks and destroys cancer cells.
A virus that heals?
Viruses are harmful, right? Not always! Surprisingly, the Rigvir virus is found in the gut of healthy children. Rigvir is short for “Riga virus” — Riga being the capital of Latvia. Rigvir is a microscopic living organism with unique properties that kill tumors without hurting healthy cells.
After Rigvir invades the tumor cell, the virus replicates, causing the tumor cell to rupture and die. Rigvir breaks down cancer cells, stimulates the immune system to reject the tumor, and promotes apoptosis (programmed cell death, i.e., cancer cell suicide).
This is the polar opposite of chemotherapy drugs. Chemo impairs or destroys the immune system, while Rigvir boosts it.
Dr. Jimenez remarked, “I’ve been to 70 countries, and I’ve never seen a medicine that’s not a chemo drug that has so much research behind it. You can tell I’m pretty excited about Rigvir.”
Rigvir has none of the side effects of chemo. The only side effect that some people feel is a temperature of 99 degrees Fahrenheit that might last for three days. Concerning that side effect, Dr. Jimenez said, “Big deal.”
Dr. Jimenez decided to take Rigvir therapy for himself because it’s not harmful and because he thought it could benefit his health. He was already the picture of health and vitality before taking Rigvir. He said, “Within three days, tests showed a significant improvement in my immune system, which I thought was pretty good [in the first place]. This shows that we all have room for improvement in our immune system.” He didn’t get the mild, temporary fever side-effect.
Dr. Jimenez said, “Rigvir is a cancer medicine — a medication approved for cancer. It’s bionanotechnology — not an alternative, complementary medicine. It’s the most potent immune modulator I’ve ever seen.”

Maybe just a little excited??  Yes? {Me too!}
Grace and Hope mingle this night.  Praying for wisdom, discernment as we journey this cancer road... And Hope, Abundant Hope, to make light of the burdens we carry and lift our hearts to face the Son.

In Grace, Always,

One Tiny Apricot Kernel

Several days ago we had a chance to meet Felicity Corbin Wheeler and learn about her pancreatic cancer fight.  She shares in detail about her treatments and one in particular is the use of B-17, also known to many as laetrile, or perhaps you would know it as the tiny but powerful Apricot Kernel.

Dr. Veronique Desaulniers has also walked the pancreatic cancer road with her father.  She too has much to say about the tiny Apricot Kernel.  Here's just a part of her story:

Apricot Kernels and Bitter Almonds Display Promising Effects

"In September of 1983 my father was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He was dead in 6 weeks. I remember the anguish and the frustration as the medical doctors offered no hope. I had been in practice for only 3 years and the Internet was nonexistent back then. But I recall going to the library to do research about healing cancer without toxic drugs or radiation. I also called "cancer clinics" all over North America and Mexico, trying to find a solution to my father's illness.

Thus began my quest to understand how to heal and prevent cancer

One treatment that stood out at the time was Amygdalin, the product that is produced from crushed apricot pits.

Amygdalin is not to be confused with Laetrile, also known as B17, which is a semi-synthetic patented version of Amygdalin.
Laetrile and Amygdalin have been used successfully around the world for the reversal of many types of cancer. The Hunza tribes in the Himalayans are virtually cancer free, which some have attributed to their daily consumption of apricot pits and millet, both of which contain amygdalin.
The apricot pits contain a compound called glycosides which are a combination of sugar and cyanide. What takes place here is what we call selective toxicity. A specific enzyme that is produced in large quantities by cancer cells, triggers the sugar break down that releases the cyanide. The cyanide is what kills the cancer cells.
But why are healthy cells not affected by the cyanide? Healthy cells have a specific enzyme called rhodanese, which renders the cyanide harmless. How's that for another amazing healing miracle?
Another way that amygdalin affects cancer cells is that it inhibits angiogenesis. Angiogenesis is the formation of new blood flow as the cancer cells are growing and forming a tumor. If the blood flow to the tumor is blocked, the cancer cells die.
Amygdalin also suppresses inflammatory responses which lead to multiple diseases, including cancer.
Specific studies have shown how amygdalin induces apoptosis or cell death in prostate cancer cells, human colon cancer cells and in leukemia cells.
Amygdalin even inhibits the growth of the Epstein-Barr virus, which often induces tumor growth. The anti-tumor promoting activity of amygdalin and other compounds was studied in both in vitro and in vivo assays.
While administered specifically for cancer treatment, a wonderful side effect is that amygdalin actually helps relieve the pain that is often associated with aggressive cancers.
Laetrile can be administered orally in pill form or it can be injected into a vein. Typically the administration of Laetrile is spread out over a period of time. Unfortunately, because of manipulation of laboratory studies conducted in the 70's, Amygdalin and Laetrile are not readily available in the United States.  After all, healing cancer patients with a low cost nutrient would spell disaster for the multi-billion dollar cancer industry.
There are literally hundreds of known plant based cancer cures that have saved countless of lives. Unfortunately the masses are not informed of the many non-toxic ways to heal the body. However, as web sites like continue to inform and educate, hopefully the tide will slowly turn in order to make these modalities part of a harmless cancer protocol.

And here is an excerpt from The Truth About Cancer that also details the possible option of including Apricot Kernels in the cancer fight:

"Dr. Ernest Krebs was a biochemist in the early 1950s whose desire to understand what makes cancer cells work led him to discover a possible key to overcoming the disease. Working on a hunch that cancer is ultimately a metabolic reaction to a poor diet, Krebs began studying the lifestyle habits of the Hunzas whose remote country is hidden near Northern Pakistan.

The Hunzas and Apricot Kernels

Major Sir Robert McCarrison wrote about the Hunzas back in the 1930s when he had a post with the Indian Medical Service. According to McCarrison, the Hunzas enjoyed near-perfect physical and mental health and some of them lived to be over 135 years old. There seemed to be no evidence of diabetes, obesity, or heart attacks among them as well. There was also no evidence of cancer.
What made the Hunzas so resilient? Their vitality had a lot to do with what they ate and their overall lifestyle. Their diet was simple. According to McCarrison, it consisted of raw milk, the occasional meat and bone broth, fresh grains and veggies. They ate very little sugar and their lifestyles as nomads and herders meant they got plenty of vigorous exercise. The other characteristic was that the group ate large quantities of apricot seed kernels. Intrigued by this peculiarity, Krebs researched until he found what he thought was the secret weapon for tumor eradication – amygdalin.

What is Amygdalin?

Amygdalin is a compound that is found in over 1200 edible plants in nature (and, not surprisingly, is also missing in large part from the Standard American Diet). It is found in the highest concentrations and with the most effective accompanying enzymes in apricot seed kernels.
The substance laetrile was created by Dr. Krebs as a concentrated form of amygdalin that is obtained by extracting it from apricot kernels. Amygdalin is a nitriloside and its structure most resembles that of a B complex vitamin, so Krebs named it B17.

What Makes Apricot Kernels a Cancer Killer?

Amygdalin found in apricot kernels and laetrile contains four potent substances: two of which are benzaldehyde and cyanide. You heard that right! Cyanide is one of the substances that makes apricot kernels a force to be reckoned with when it comes to beating cancer, including breast cancer.
Many healthy foods, such as bitter almonds, millet, sprouts, lima beans, spinach and bamboo shoots, actually have quantities of cyanide in them, yet they are still safe to eat. This is because the cyanide remains “locked” within the substance and is therefore harmless when bound within other molecular formations. In addition, rhodanese is an enzyme in the body whose job is to “catch” any free cyanide molecules that may have escaped and render them harmless.
Cancer cells are not normal cells, however; they contain beta-glucosidase, which healthy cells do not. Beta-glucosidase is also the “unlocking enzyme” for the cyanide and benzaldehyde in amygdalin molecules. When the beta-glucosidase in a cancer cell unlocks an amygdalin molecule, a toxic synergy is created that specifically targets cancer cells. With the help of rhodanese and other protective enzymes, healthy cells are not jeopardized by this process.

Laetrile: A Potentially Powerful Cancer Therapy

Laetrile was readily obtainable prior to 1971 when the FDA banned it in the US. Although it is not impossible to obtain laetrile, these days apricot kernels are the easiest way to ingest amygdalin. They are easy to obtain at health food stores or online and are also fairly inexpensive.
Clinics exist outside of the US where B17 or laetrile therapy is still administered. Laetrile is often used in addition to other therapies such as sodium bicarbonate.
If you feel that B17 therapy is the way to go for you, be sure to get the facts about dosage and possible side effects. Talk to your integrated medical practitioner about your particular situation.
While the mystery may remain as to the main cause for the Hunza’s amazing vitality, one thing is for certain: their simple and stress-free way of eating, working, interacting and moving their bodies have made them examples of the health that YOU are capable of having when you take proactive steps to heal your body naturally."

I can't echo the following sentiment strongly enough...

If you feel that B17 therapy is the way to go for you, be sure to get the facts about dosage and possible side effects. Talk to your integrated medical practitioner about your particular situation.

This 31 Day Challenge set out to explore all the options in the cancer fight.  It is not medical advice or even our personal medical experience.  Mom never made it out of her chemo/radiation treatment long enough to try any of the options listed here.  It will forever haunt us... but also drive us to fight for the cure.

Graced this night to be fighting hard with you.

She Rises with Strength and Purpose

Felicity Corbin Wheeler is a passionate fighter.

She has faced the hardest of adversity in her life.

The loss of a beautiful 20-year old daughter to cancer...

And then the devastating diagnosis of pancreatic cancer that she herself faced in 2003.

Felicity's journey into the world of cancer led her down paths of heartache and pain, but she has risen with an astounding strength and purpose to see others healed with the inexpensive, immune system building, detoxing, body-mind-spirt-environment program that she says saved her life.

She shares this life-saving, common sense information in her Get Well Stay Well course and is a staunch advocate of natural healing therapies.

But if you're like me, and either have cancer or are waking beside a loved one with cancer, you want the nitty-gritty details... Ok, so you survived and did it naturally.  What exactly does that mean???

Felicity's generosity is larger than the Texas sky... on her website she shares in great detail her path out of the cancer wasteland... Here is a portion:

Six weeks to live! That was my diagnosis in 2003
But I have been blessed with a complete healing from a terminal pancreatic cancer diagnosis with this Bible based nutritional and cleansing information. I have the scans to prove it!
And this information, which heals EVERY disease, is here for anyone with the intelligence to do some research.


Now, at last there is a paradigm shift in medicine.
The most intelligent, experienced doctors around the world know that chronic degenerative diseases like cancer, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, digestive diseases, and all other diseases are not eliminated by chemical medicine.
We need to detox from the chemical foods, drinks, air and stressful lifestyle that we have become addicted to.  We also need to revert to living plant foods, juices, and the peace of natural surroundings, exercise and fresh air.
Caffeinated drinks, loaded with sugar and chemicals make us sick. So does animal protein, which is dead flesh. Life can never come from dead flesh of another animal, with all the contaminants that animal carried. This includes dairy, which doctors now know is the main cause of sickness in the 21st century. Mother’s milk is the perfect food for offspring of each particular species, but drinking the milk of another animal makes mucoid placque in the body. This is the root cause of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, arthritis, and digestive disease. Meat and Dairy are now known as the “MAD DIET.”
For generations we have been duped by the multinational food corporations, backed by politicians, into believing food myths, which are killing us.
The gullible public have believed that governments are looking out after them, that health experts have our best interests at heart.
Nothing could be further from the truth. Goverments are only interested in the bottom line, financially. They want to have a healthy, productive workforce, who are expendable. Once we have passed our working usefulness, governments do not want to have to pay out pensions and health care. So they are NOT interested in our living to a long retirement!
Through the internet, brave doctors are now defying the laws brought in by Big Pharma and the lucrative, multinational power lobbies, and coming out with the truth at last. Many have been threatened with fines, imprisonment and loss of practice, but they have overcome.
These doctors are now reverting from chemical medicine which has been so fashionable and LUCRATIVE over the last 200 years, to natural biological medicine through organic plant food. They acknowledge the basic laws of nature, the plant based diet God gives us in the first chapter of the first book of the Bible Genesis 1:29 and 30.
This rebuilds the immune system God gave us, but many remain entrenched in the orthodox treatments of chemotherapy and radiotherapy. If you seek a non toxic and lifelong cure and a healthy life for yourself and your children, read on….
One in two of us now  will now develop cancer. One of my three children suddenly developed Hodgkin’s Lymphoma stage 4b when she was eighteen and an undergraduate at London University. She died only two years later, despite all the “best” chemotherapy and radiation orthodox treatment available.
I lived in the hospital in England with her for the last six months. All through the harsh treatment, including a bone marrow transplant which eventually killed her, she and I knew there had to be a better way. I promised her I would try to find it so that other people would not have to go through what she went through.
The repeated poisoning of the chemotherapy and burning from the radiation at famous London teaching hospitals, and finally one of Britain’s leading cancer hospitals, just did not stop the cancer returning, and each time she was weaker and less able to recover. She eventually died with great grace and courage, surrounded by her loving family back at home in Jersey at Easter 1989.
Having worked as a researcher in the Houses of Parliament in London, I wanted to know why young, fit people could get this dreadful disease, and investigated cancer causes and cures. Many of the young people who were being treated at the cancer hospital had come from areas where there were nuclear power stations. For us in the Channel Islands, the proximity of Cap de la Hague, 30 miles away in France, the radon in granite farm houses has also been suspect.
Scientific confirmation eventually came when tests on the well water at our farm showed a high level of toxicity which had seeped down to the level of the well from the chemicals sprayed on the farm by previous owners.
We have polluted our beautiful natural world in many ways, and the pollution is killing us.
I studied in London and America. I researched in Europe, the Far East, South Africa and Australia and New Zealand. However, I did not find the ultimate answer until I was diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer in September 2003.
I went to my London church for prayer after I had been given only a few weeks to live. I was in gut wrenching pain, only partially controlled by morphine, suffering horribly from nausea and jaundice and had lost a quarter of my body weight in two weeks.
A stent had been fitted to relieve the jaundice and liver failure that was killing me, by a kind and very competent consultant gastro-enterologist in the finest London military hospital, but after a week of tests it was decided the tumour was too large to be operated on. I had a no hope, no treatment diagnosis.
In my London church I was prayed for most powerfully by a woman pastor. Afterwards, she told me she had previously been a gastro-enterology nurse for one of the finest specialists in London.
The only hope I had in the natural, she said, was a cancer treatment called LAETRILE, or VITAMIN B17, based on God’s Word about our diet in the first chapter of the first book of the Bible.
A Christian cancer hospital in Mexico, had already helped one hundred thousand cancer patients with unprecedented success. Their treatment was based on the seeds God tells us to eat in Genesis.
In Genesis 1:29 and 30, God says “I give you every seed bearing plant on the face of the earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground – everything that has the breath of life in it, I give green plant for food.” The green plant is wheat and barley grass, which can be consumed by juicing, and all green vegetables.
She reminded me that we have removed most of these seeds and raw, natural, living enzymes from our diet, which is why cancer rates are escalating. For instance grapes are now mass produced without their precious seeds which contain the cancer preventing living enzymes. Supermarket bread is made from bleached refined wheat, with the wheat germ removed, whilst our ancestors ate bread made with whole grains including the life-giving seeds of millet and spelt rich in B17.
She also taught me that the richest source of the essence of seeds is the apricot kernel. The world famous biochemist Dr. Ernst Krebs, known to medical students for the “Krebs Cycle”, developed this life-giving substance into a liquid called laetrile, which can be given intravenously. It was given vitamin status and is known as vitamin B17. This intravenous laetrile, or vitamin B17, based on God’s Word in Genesis, was the only thing that could heal me in the natural in the few weeks I had left. God can do miracles when we come into obedience with His Word. She gave me the address of a website which my husband and I could research.
I obtained the B17 in the natural kernel form the next day. I went on the Genesis diet of herbs, vegetables, fruit, seeds, juices and green plants, took enzymes and detoxifying COFFEE ENEMAS, recommended by the GERSON THERAPY.   I did these five times a day to detox my liver. I also had the ampoules of laetrile sent from the hospital in Mexico.

The Oasis of Hope Hospital was founded by Dr. Ernesto Contreras, who was a Mexican Army doctor. He was curing patients with integrated health back in 1963.
His son Dr. Francisco Contreras, has directed the Hospital since his father’s passing, follows his father’s tradition of caring for the patients as though they were his own family. He says he would not give any treatment that he would not give to his own mother or wife. The hospital abounds with love and compassion.

Dr. Contreras rebuilds patient’s immune systems with his Integrative Regulatory therapy, always tries to do this naturally, but being one of the world’s top surgical oncologist he can operate as and when necessary and even gives the refined, individualised, insulin potentiated chemo when necessary.
Look at the website to see all the treatments used, such as Integrative Regulatory therapy, ozone treatments with UV, oxidative pre-conditioning, immune stimulation, signal transduction, cytoxic therapy, neutraceuticals, emotional and spiritual support.
Patients usually stay three weeks, and a companion is included in the cost.   This companion shares the suite offered, all juices and healthy food for the stay. Patients have treatments and lectures every day, and cooking classes to teach them now to STAY well once they go home. The dining room is a delight of beautiful healthy food, served by smiling Mexican staff, and abuzz with patients and their companions from all over the world, sharing their healing experiences. As a nurse as well as a patient, I can confirm Oasis really is the most caring hospital I have ever been in.
My own doctor in Jersey had no training in B17. He showed me in his medical journal that it contained powerful cyanide and was afraid to administer it. I had already read that the special hydrocyanic acid is only released on contact with a cancer cell, and is harmless to ordinary cells. But he was adamant. He was afraid of litigation. I tried another doctor who told me B17 would not work. It was interesting that one thought it too strong to be safe, and the other thought it not strong enough. For me, it was based on God’s Word, and I trusted Him completely.
Then a friend introduced me to a young woman doctor who did Hospice work. She understood B17, and gave it to me intravenously thirteen times, every other day. Within two months the pain reduced, and after eight months the scans show the tumour reduced to a mere scar. The medical establishment calls this a Medical Miracle, or excused it as a misdiagnosis. However, it was confirmed by three consultants. No misdiagnosis.
I know it was simply that from the moment I was prayed for, God brought the right people and the right information into my path and I came into obedience to His food laws, given in the first chapter of the first book of the Bible.
Our family, like most British families, had believed in eating a “balanced diet” which comprised mainly cooked food, animal protein, salt, sugar and refined grains. We ate eggs and bacon for breakfast, we drank packaged orange juice and had caffeine rich coffee and tea and chocolate. We drank very little alcohol in our family, but we did drink rich Jersey milk, ate cooked meat, fish and, chicken, and sweet deserts made with cream and sugar.
I had tried out the delicious new food offered over the last thirty years in supermarkets. I read the labels of contents and had not been concerned. I had bought a microwave, to make cooking quicker. Little did I realize that this kills ALL living enzymes in the food. I thought we had a healthy diet, but I had a lot to learn.
Cancer is a nutritional DEFICIENCY DISEASE, like scurvy or pellagra. It is not caused by bacterium, a virus or a mysterious toxin, but by the DEFICIENCY of a substance that we have removed from our diet. That substance is vitamin B17, derived from the seeds and living enzymes in the fresh raw vegetables, fruit and plants God tells us to eat in Genesis. When we add the toxicity of 21st century lifestyle to this deficiency we are living in a perfect storm. No wonder one in two of us now develops cancer.
We now know why we get sick. Despite all the prayer you can offer, God cannot heal us when we have blatantly disobeyed his basic rules for our diet.
Hosea 4:6 says “my people die for lack of knowledge”
If we lived on the food God ordains in Genesis 1:29 and 30, herbs, vegetables, fruit, seeds and green plant, we could not become sick. But our western diet is mainly dead cooked food; all enzymes and vitamins are destroyed when they are heated by whatever means to 107 degrees. We are simply not living on the raw, organic, living fruit, vegetables, seeds and green plants that God ordained. Processed juices, which I had previously used, are pasteurised and no longer contain living enzymes.
They are finding that cancer is a metabolic degenerative disease of deficiency, occurring in a vulnerable site of the body that has been damaged by pollution such as chemicals, smoke, alcohol, cortisol or any other stressor. Cutting, poisoning and burning will not address the real problem, which is the body’s desperate need for the vital living enzymes God designed us to consume.
Laetrile, found in the seeds of apricots, grapes and apples, and also in wheatgrass and barleygrass, gives the body the richest source of vitamins A, B including B17, C, organic calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, sodium, potassium, organic iron to build the blood, and 92 out of 102 trace minerals. It is the best form of chlorophyll, it reduces blood pressure, eliminates deposits, purifies the liver, heals wounds, counteracts toxins, corrects blood sugar, combats hair loss and greying, relieves constipation, helps the body to resist radiation, kills bacteria in the blood, contains all the amino acids, and is the complete food.
No wonder people heal when they start drinking it. Because it is the complete food, we find we dont need much else, which permits the body to concentrate on eliminating toxins, healing cells and organs, rather than using that energy to digest empty foods.

Having seen my teenage daughter tortured to death by chemo and radiation in 1989, on my own diagnosis in 2003 I adopted the natural, non toxic, immune boosting protocol immediately and with absolute conviction.

Over eight months my massive tumor, which was in the head of the pancreas, next to the lung and aorta, and therefore “inoperable and incurable,” was reduced to a mere scar. I still maintain the diet and lifestyle that healed me, and know that God is my healer and give Him thanks every day.
Psalm 118.17 says “I shall not die but live, and proclaim what the Lord has done”.

And proclaim it she has done.  Her website is a wealth of information, as is her Get Well Stay Well course.
Thank you Felicity!  You have graced us with Hope and another strong option in our fight against cancer!

My Love, Always,

Words of Hope...

Life happens.
To all of us.
A sickness, an illness, an accident, a divorce, a death. 
A moment...that shatters us like never before---your world in a thousand pieces on the floor.
You cry out--- you worry life will never be what you knew life to be. You flounder, you listen to all of the bad voices. You feel beaten down, you worry, you sink into darkness, despair and maybe even fear. You go through each day holding your breath.

The very bad part is not what's happening but the fact that most of us stay there in that paralyzing darkness. We learn and adjust to live in it---fear, depression, stress---not knowing that there is a lighted tunnel right before us. But it is up to us to take the step forward. No one else.

~ Kathryn Hahn

And take that next step she did!  Kathryn has graced our blog before...

Her story is compelling and inspiring!  And just in case anyone missed it, go check out her story, here and here...

She has undertaken a firm, decisive role in her cancer treatment.  After the traditional medical therapies failed her, and with the cancer growing, she turned to alternative, natural treatments in her fight. 

Kathryn shares a little of that story here:

"I know any kind of diagnosis that is cancer or another degenerative disease, can throw you off kilter.
Can cloud your brain.
Can send you into a panic.
Please hear me...stop!
Take a deep breath,
 take some time to think.
You are not in the grave. Your still sitting in the same spot you were 10 minutes ago before you knew the diagnosis. The only thing that has changed from last week, last month, is knowledge.
Now you know something you didn't know before.
So, take the time to obtain even more knowledge.
Knowledge that will truly help you.

Cancer is the growth of abnormal cells. We all have them.
What makes the abnormal cells in some of us start growing more than others is what we eat, our environment and our lifestyle.
These are all things you can change. And IF you can change these contributors, then you can change the direction of the cancer!
YOU can.

If our car is broken, we don't fix it by throwing gasoline all over it and setting it on fire. That only makes the situation worse. That would be killing the car.
Well, why would  you want to do the same thing to your own body?
How will throwing liquid fire into your body help it to be healthy again?

Contrary to what the doctors are telling you, you don't have to take chemo and radiation.  And you CAN be well again.
Of course, the choice is yours.
The doctors for years have been attempting to treat this disease in the wrong way and failing. Yet they keep doing it and have convinced us, this is the only way. This causes fear in everyone. The chemo and the radiation is what kills.
Cancer is not a death sentence and is not passed down from your mother and grandmother. The thing that is passed down is the bad way we eat and our lifestyle.

Now that I have been through 7 kinds of chemo that did not help me at all but only destroyed parts of my body and now that I am healing naturally, (continual shrinkage of cancer shown in two cat scans)  I hate hearing that anyone is going to go through chemotherapy or radiation.
I want to yell, "Please STOP, please DON'T!"
I have done lots of research, I am trying lots of different protocols, and talking to natural survivors....
I now know...
Loads of people are living, breathing proof.

Empower yourself with knowledge.
Take the steps needed for a healthy body and life."

Kathryn has taken the steps she needed for a healthy body and life.

Her blog is filled with a detailed outline of her natural, non-toxic cancer therapies and the Gerson Therapy is her mainstay.

An interesting note: She has also included the Budwig protocol with her current regiment, along with a variety of supplements, raw juices, coffee enemas and Essiac tea.

She is the first to admit the protocol is demanding, but she doesn't hold back either:

"So through all of the protocols I have been through, in August of last year, I took it one step further into eating only what God provided.... A raw vegan diet...mostly fruit. ......I can already hear the disclaimers, the grumblings and the I can't's.... Yes you can. That is how we were made to eat. The only reason you think you can't eat this way is because your body has been trained, by you, to eat badly. It is like a couch potato who can no longer get up."

That's some tough love.  And Kathryn is right. 

Cancer is not for wimps.

"And, Yes, life is going to be different now. Yes, by God 's grace, you will be different but it will be better if you completely trust him with it.  I can't begin to tell you how great this truth is. To the point that I would not have wanted to go through the rest of my life if I had not gone down this road. Everything shapes us."

Thank you Kathryn for your words of hope.

It is Grace to be inspired this night,

Dying to Have Known...The Gerson Therapy

The Gerson Therapy is not new to the readers of this blog... we've discussed it before as a potential alternative cancer treatment.

From what I can tell through researching, it has long been used to treat cancers and is considered a metabolic therapy... a therapy using diet, supplements and enemas to detox the body.  The Gerson Therapy works to treat the underlying causes of disease: toxicity and nutritional deficiency.

The following is taken directly from the Gerson Institute website:

"The Gerson® Therapy is a natural treatment that activates the body’s extraordinary ability to heal itself through an organic, plant-based diet, raw juices, coffee enemas and natural supplements."

The therapy was developed by Max Gerson, a German-born American physician.  In 1977 his daughter, Charlotte Gerson, founded the non-profit Gerson Institute in San Diego, CA, dedicated to providing education and training in the Gerson Therapy.

One important caveat to mention for pancreatic cancer warriors.  On their website they are careful to caution that their treatment is not effective in all cases.  On their Contraindications page they particularly focus on pancreatic cancer and say that they have found it does not respond well to the Gerson Therapy once chemotherapy has been done... So, the thought, then would be that a pancreatic cancer patient should seek out their therapy first before chemotherapy is considered.  And I have to say, that after all the emails, letters and conversations I have had with pancreatic cancer patients over the past 5 years, it is perhaps an option I would visit after a pc diagnosis.  If giving the Gerson Therapy a try for 30-45 days is an option, and if it does not seem to be reversing the cancer, chemotherapy could then be the next plan of attack.  At the very least, it is an option to be considered.
If you have time, here's a great documentary by Stephen Kroschel on the Gerson Therapy...

It is a lengthy watch, but perhaps a good investment of your time if you are considering the Gerson Therapy as an alternative treatment.

I was impressed that he included both the skeptics and the believers in the documentary.  A good cross-section of (hopefully) unbiased testimonies.

Charlotte Gerson has also written a book:

Healing the Gerson Way: Defeating Cancer and Other Chronic Diseases.  It details the program well and gives an overview of the traditional methods of treating cancer and the alternative protocols that work to fix the underlying cause of cancer.

There is also a Facebook group not connected with the Gerson Institute that may interest some:  It is the Gerson Therapy Support Group and currently has over 15,000 members.  Their aim is to support those who choose to use the Gerson Therapy. 

And finally, for a more thorough understanding of the Gerson Therapy, you can check out their website at the Gerson Institute here.

Tomorrow we'll meet another pancreatic cancer survivor and hear how the Gerson Therapy is working for them.  There is hope out there...  You don't want to miss it!

Grace, Always,

The Hoxsey Formula

Yesterday we got a glimpse into life after pancreatic cancer...

... abundant, health-full living... free of cancer.

Today we learn a little more about Pamela's treatment and dig into some nitty-gritty details! 

The therapy that was mentioned in Pamela's interview is called The Hoxsey Formula.

The formula used today has been around a long time... developed in the mid 1800's by Mr. Hoxsey.  And interesting to note, it actually began as a treatment for cancer in one of his horses.  What was a successful treatment in the equine field soon became a successful treatment for those of the human kind suffering with cancers, malignancies, and other inflammatory diseases.

The remedies and herbal therapies have been passed down through the years and are now offered at The Hoxsey BioMedical Clinic in Tijuana, Mexico.

This excerpt from the Hoxsey Clinic website briefly explains the diagnostic and treatment methods used in their practice:

"The treatments available at Bio-Medical Center include natural herbs, special diet, vitamins and minerals, lifestyle counseling, positive attitude, and conventional medical treatments when indicated. Modern diagnostic methods include extensive laboratory analysis, X-rays, ultrasound, CT scans, and others as needed for your case. Once an accurate diagnosis has been made, the doctors will outline a special program that works to strengthen the impaired immune system. By rebalancing and normalizing your metabolism, the treatments at Bio-Medical Center give your body a chance to heal itself often without resorting to more toxic debilitating treatments."

Many would call this an integrated or holistic approach to healing the body of disease and cancer.

And Pamela would agree.  Their use of conventional methods along with the effective use of herbal, diet and lifestyle therapies seem to have made the difference in her pancreatic cancer fight.

In The Truth About Cancer, Ty shared his experience after visiting with the staff and doctors at the Hoxsey Biomedical Clinic.  The article is a worthy read, and goes into much more detail about The Hoxsey Formula and the premise behind its success... You can read it here.

In part, Ty shares that "...Hoxsey’s understanding of cancer was that it is a systemic disease created from metabolic imbalances that needed to be restored. His tonics were meant to help create homeostasis (internal stability), kill cancer cells, and remove the toxins created from killing cancer cells. This perspective is in line with almost all natural cancer treatments and practitioners.  Today, the BioMedical Center (just across the Mexican border from San Diego) has doctors that diagnose and prescribe only natural remedies in addition to Hoxsey’s tonics and salves. These natural cancer remedies include homeopathy, laetrile, Montana Yew extract, and dietary recommendations.  "

At one time, Harry Hoxsey operated throughout the United States and had, perhaps, one of the largest group of alternative cancer clinics.  However, over the years the American Medical Association (AMA) made several attempts to stop him from curing cancer patients, accusing him of practicing medicine without a license.

He won a libel lawsuit in 1950 against AMA head Morris Fishbein and the powerful Hearst Publications group, but not a decade later the FDA shut him down and that is when the Hoxsey Clinic moved to Tijuana, Mexico.

So, is The Hoxsey Formula the real deal?

Was he a quack?  Or a healer?

The testimonies of those his formula have healed is long and continues to grow.

The testimonies of those pancreatic cancer warriors that chemotherapy and radiation have healed is painfully short and is. not. growing.

Might the Hoxsey Formula be an option then in the pancreatic cancer fight?

Perhaps so...

For more in-depth information I would encourage you to head over to their website and research it until you can check it off the list or check it out in person:

The Hoxsey Biomedical Clinic

Could this be the option you are looking for? 

Love and Grace this night,

A Pancreatic Cancer Success Story...

When we began our 31 Day Challenge: The Truth About Cancer, I was so excited to share a little hope for those walking this cancer road.  The following interview with Ty Bollinger from The Truth About Cancer: A Global Quest is just that: living, breathing, joyful hope... A pancreatic cancer survivor that is flourishing 40 years from her diagnosis!

Friends, come meet Pamela Kelsey:

Ty: I’m here at the BioMedical Center, the Hoxsey clinic, with Pam Kelsey. I so thank you for joining us today. I’m so grateful to be able to get your story because you had a very difficult type of cancer to treat, didn’t you?

Pam: I did.

Ty: Tell us your story, Pam.

Pam: I actually had two. I started with cancer of the pancreas.

Ty: Pancreatic cancer.

Pam: Pancreatic cancer.

Ty: Very difficult cancer to treat.

Pam: Very horrible.

Ty: What year was this?

Pam: This was 1975. Way back. I was 34.

Ty: Forty years ago.

Pam: Yes, 40 years ago. I first was diagnosed with some hypoglycemia. I started having low blood sugar problems and finally it got worse and worse, terrible pain through my abdomen. A friend had been to Hoxsey, as it was called in those days, and she had a friend who was cured of inoperable colon cancer.
So she recommended that I see the clinic. So we came down immediately and I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. They said I was fortunate because it was just beginning, just starting to go into the intestinal area. It was really good to know.
I felt like I was in good hands because they showed me the x-rays of exactly what was going on. And it was just a day, just like now. They still have the same regimen. You’ll get your tonic, they gave me supplements. At that time they giving yeast, vitamin C, calcium, and digestive enzymes. They said in three months I should start to feel better. I was just in intense pain, it was really right through my middle, which I understand is a symptom of pancreatic cancer, just like having a knife go through to your back.

Ty: So you had stomach pain and back pain?

Pam: Yes. It was just like right through the center. And it came out in the back, like literally going through the middle of my chest. And so I went home, started the treatment. I was very religious about what I did. I checked with Mildred Nelson, who was very good to me. If I had questions, I’d call her up, she’d immediately tell me what to do. So within about three months, it was actually almost three months to the day, I noticed a change. I didn’t have to take as much pain medication for my headaches. My abdomen started to feel better. I started being able to digest food better. And gradually, from that period of time, I just felt better and better.

Ty: That’s really fascinating. I mean, that’s fast. Three months with pancreatic cancer. Which many people are dead in three months from pancreatic cancer.

Pam: I know. I followed people that have had pancreatic cancer over the years. Jack Benny had it, and with all the doctors and money he had, he didn’t know he had it until it was too late. Michael Landon had it, Steve Jobs, different people that - it’s very hard to treat and very low success for recovery.

Ty: I don’t know anyone that has had pancreatic cancer that has treated it conventionally that’s still alive.

Pam: I don’t either. Over all the years
Ty: And you’re alive 40 years later. That’s amazing.

Pam: I know, it is, truly. And to have those symptoms, like I said, the pain. And to know that it was just so deadly. And so then I was clear all the years, until 2011. In 2011, I’d had a good physical in January, but I noticed that my abdomen started feeling tighter and tighter. I felt like maybe it was back pain, or just something muscular. But it got tighter and tighter. And I started to have pain on my right side, right in the middle of my right side. So I got more concerned about it. The pain started getting gradually worse and on a Friday afternoon I thought, “This is to the point where it isn’t my imagination, I better find out about this.” So I called a nurse that was a friend and she suggested that I get to the hospital because it could be appendicitis, it could be a number of things.
So I knew it was too late to come down to BioMedical. So my husband and I got in the car and drove to St. John’s hospital, which I had also for medical reasons, I had checked with some of the doctors there.
It was a renowned hospital. Elizabeth Taylor went there, Michael Jackson. It was a very well-known hospital, and very reputable. It was a Friday afternoon. I had more symptoms, called a nurse, she said I should get to the hospital to find out what was going on. So my husband and I got in the car, drove to St. John’s Hospital in Santa Monica, and told them what was going on. They gave me a CT scan and sent me home because it was the weekend and said to follow up with the doctor on Monday.
So the pain got worse and worse. I called on Monday. I told him what was going on. He said, “Let me call you right back.” He read the report and he said, “You need to get to the hospital right away.” I said, “Do you think I have cancer?” And then he said, “I think you have what you said.” So I knew that I wasn’t going to go for further treatment. I said, “Let me think about it.” And my husband and I immediately came down to the clinic, got the CT scan here. And Dr. Gutierrez, my old family friend, he informed me that 50 percent of the liver was affected by 22 lesions. And they were up to - St. John’s hospital had done the CT scan and they found a number of lesions.
They said they were up to 3.9 centimeters, and they were hypoechoic which means that there was a low echo when they did the CT scan. There was a low echo which indicated a very dense tissue. And they said liver neoplasm could not be excluded. So that’s what their diagnosis was. The CT scan here said that there were 22 focal lesions. And the same thing, that they were up from one to five centimeters in size. So I decided to go on the tonic, of course, again. And they put me this time on an organic vegan diet which was more strict. No animal products. I couldn’t wait for the three months. I was supposed to come back in three months but I couldn’t wait. I was nervous but I was also wanting to find out. Because I know 50 percent, you don’t want to wait too long. So I came back in two and a half months and they found that only three of the lesions were remaining in that short of a time.

Ty: Twenty two down to three?
Pam: Twenty two down to three. And I just, home free. I felt really secure and I came down a few weeks later and they were all gone. So it’s just been an amazing experience, truly.

Ty: That is amazing. And that was four years ago?

Pam: Yes. Four years ago. And I’ve done ultrasounds since then. I had one more CT scan and it was clear.
And now when Dr. Rodriguez gives me the ultrasounds, he said not only - he checks my whole body, and the abdomen, the pancreas is clear. He said, “It looks like you never - you would never know that you had anything wrong with your pancreas or your liver.” Even the scar tissue has healed on my liver.

Ty: That is just amazing.

Pam: Yes. It’s incredible.

Ty: I think you’re the longest living pancreatic cancer survivor that I’ve ever heard of.

Pam: I know. And the sad thing, Ty, was that the doctor in the hospital emergency when I went in - I called. I wanted St. John’s to know what happened because they have that CT scan. And so I wanted them to know what happened. That I got the treatment and to see what Hoxsey did, what BioMedical did for me.
And he said, “that’s a very interesting story,” but he never followed up to want to see it or anything.
Which was just shocking, you know? To have them do that CT and to know that there it was. And he said that it was very interesting.

Ty: I say it’s shocking, but it’s not shocking anymore. It used to be shocking to me but throughout these interviews, everyone that I talk to that has been diagnosed with some kind of an advanced cancer, they go back to the oncologist and they don’t want to know. It’s not really shocking. It’s a shame. That they don’t want to know.

Pam: It’s a tragedy really, and I’m so glad you’re doing this. Because for a long time - we have a business where we publish a magazine and have a website, and it’s kind of known all over the world. And I always wanted the clinic to do more publicity. Of course, they kept a fairly low profile with referrals. But it’s really nice to have more publicity and to have more people be able to know that this is such an amazing, simple treatment. That we’ve known people all over the world, over the years, have been treated for colon cancer, breast cancer, two particular ones were prostate cancer. Given up to die and they’re doing well.

Ty: That’s really amazing and people need to know this. They need to know that they have options.

Pam: Absolutely. This is so simple, and there’s no pain, there’s no deterioration of your body, there’s no harmful treatment. But it works.

Ty: And it’s affordable for most people.

Pam: I know, and it’s so fast. The thing that I would really like to always recommend to people is that they come down first. Because for a lot of the patients it’s a last resort. And that’s the only reason why some people do die. One of two things I’ve found over the years is that either they’re not following their diet and their instructions carefully. Because people think, “well you can cheat here, you can cheat there on your diet.” But the tonic is very sensitive to different chemicals like in tomatoes and things like that.

Ty: We heard that from Dr. Gutierrez.

Pam: Yes. So you have to follow it completely and then also they’re too weak. We knew one man from Germany who didn’t make it but he was absolutely given up to die. He was a skeleton when he walked in here. And it was just too late. So that’s the only reason that we’ve seen anyone not do well.

Ty: What’s your message to somebody that’s been diagnosed with cancer and they’re told that they’re terminal? Because you had pancreatic cancer. What would you like to tell them?

Pam: I would just like to tell them, no matter what they’re doing, and this is what I tell people whenever I’m contacted or whenever I find out about anyone, to just come here. Even if it’s for a second opinion.
Send your records down here. Come and see and talk to the doctors. And decide, make an informed decision. Because once you get here and you feel that you just can talk to people, it’s so faith-building.
Don’t give in to just a treatment that’s promised. My own mother died of lymphoma and it was just so sad that she completely trusted the doctors. They thought she would do well. She didn’t. And so it’s a matter of trust. And the medical situation, like with pancreatic cancer, they don’t have good records of success rates.

Ty: Is there always hope?

Pam: Absolutely. I mean, here, there really is.

Ty: Pam, you’re living proof. Forty years out from pancreatic cancer.

Pam: I feel like a poster child. And they’ve helped me through different things too over the years. Mildred knew so much. And Dr. Gutierrez - I will say one more thing that might be interesting to people. The doctor that is head of the clinic, Dr. Rodriguez, had his own clinic. He was a radiologist. He had his own clinic in Tijuana. So Mildred used to have him come up at lunchtime to read the x-rays and all the radiology and do the radiology for all the doctors. They’d get together and meet at lunch. He’d come up, help read the x-rays, and then he’d go back.
And he found that when he - because he treated multiple people all over the city - he found that the people that he treated that came here, he would see results on the X-rays. He’d be doing the follow up.
And he said, “You’re curing cancer. I can see all these results.” It was so astounding. So Mildred gradually had him come more and more and now he’s head of the clinic. So I think that’s very faithinspiring.

Ty: That really is. He said, “You’re curing cancer.” Harry Hoxsey was always the quack that cured cancer.
He’s no quack.

Pam: Reading his story was very interesting too, how it originated. He treated Barnum & Bailey Circus animals and then people wanted to go to him. And it wasn’t, well you probably have that story, but anyway. He was a very famous. He was a horseman who raised thoroughbreds. So he had a horse that he put out to pasture. The horse had cancer and he put him out to pasture and the horse healed up.
And he thought, “What is this horse doing?”
And so he came up with the formula and then he began treating the Barnum & Bailey Circus animals and they had success. So one man in town had found out he had cancer and he was, I think he was a doctor I’m not sure of that, but anyway, he begged him to treat him. Hoxsey said, “Well this is just for animals.” He said, “I don’t care. I’ve got cancer. I don’t want to die.”
So he gave him the treatment and he did well. And in the beginning days, then the American Medical Association, the AMA, was just starting. There was a political thing. They wanted to go into partnership with Hoxsey and charge $10,000 a patient. And Hoxsey said, “I can’t do that, because my father promised I would never refuse to treat patients if they couldn’t pay.” So he refused that. And then, of course, that was what led to coming south of the border. Because they were in Dallas for many years.

Ty: What would you tell Harry if you could talk to him?

Pam: I’d tell him, thank you, thank you, thank you. You saved my life. I wouldn’t still be alive.

Ty: Well thank you, Pam, for sharing your story. Very inspiring.

Pam: Thank you, Ty.

Ty: Forty years out.

Pam: I just want to encourage anyone to come and send their records. Dr. Gutierrez is even available by telephone.

Ty: Good people here.

Pam: Very good.

Ty: Thank you so much.

Pam: You’re welcome.
