In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, I wanted to share an inspiring story about one of my bravest patients. For over a year now I have been treating a 72 year old woman, we’ll call her Sarah*, who was diagnosed with Stage 2 Cancer of the right breast. The cancer had Metastasis to three Lymph Nodes and was Estrogen Receptor Positive.
At the time of Sarah’s diagnosis, she was under the care of an Oncologist who recommended a right breast Lumpectomy and positive lymph node removal. The Doctor also recommended Radiation therapy followed by Tamoxifen drug therapy for 5 years. It was a difficult choice, and after much deliberation, she opted for the Lumpectomy but refused Radiation therapy.
Seeking an alternative Naturopathic treatment option, Sarah turned to Sunshine Health Care Center. I explained that I could provide Adjunctive Supportive Care but I could not guarantee a cure, after which I referred her to two other Oncologists for second opinions. Upon consulting with the Oncologists, Sarah was convinced that she did not want conventional treatment. So, in the Fall of 2010, she returned to Sunshine Health Care to start an 8-week treatment plan that included 2-3 weekly High-Dose Vitamin C Intravenous Treatments.
After the 8-week series, I ordered a PET scan, and the results were extremely encouraging. There were no signs of cancer!
Sarah has continued with weekly Vitamin C therapy for the last year. She also receives I.V. Chelation Therapy for Mercury Overload and Atherosclerosis of the Carotids. In early Spring of 2011, I ordered a complete body Thermogram for Sarah which also showed no signs of cancer or inflammation. BT Test, which is a test that detects and measures the levels of key blood serum-based protein biomarkers. These biomarkers are associated with breast cancer development and growth.
To increase the effectiveness of her treatments, Sarah has also been eating more alkaline foods, and is following a carefully designed supplement plan of 100 mg of DIM, 45 mg of Vitamin K, Minerals, antioxidant support, 800 IU of Vitamin E with mixed tocopherols, a high dose fish oil containing EPA and DHA Omega Three fatty acids, a high dose Vitamin D supplement and a comprehensive multiple vitamin.
It has only been one year and so we continue to be ever-watchful, hopeful and optimistic, but needless to say, everybody is ecstatic and elated at her response to treatments.
