Migraine headaches, which used to be part of my normal life averaging two to three a week, have completely vanished! Since August 2013 on my new diet I no longer get headaches. NONE!!! I attribute my new diet to curing those migraines as the Gerson Therapy predicted. Many other digestive-type issues, like acid reflux, indigestion, heartburn, upset stomach, constipation, etc., are gone! My blood work is now perfect and I’m off ALL medications (used to be on Lipitor for high cholesterol). I used to think my diet was okay and in moderation, so I would enjoy anything I chose. Apparently my body was not okay with my definition of moderation. The more I learn about proper eating and nutrition, the more I realize that the American (my) diet is so very far away from healthy. The main issues for me were too high of an intake of meat, caffeine, salt, sugar, dairy, and tons of chemicals and preservatives in the processed boxed, canned, and frozen foods.
I switched my diet quite radically after being informed of the cancer and now I'm on a strict fruits and vegetables regimen. Someday I will add wild, lean meats and wild caught fish, but only to a small percentage of my diet (like around 10 %.) I have lost weight (~25 lbs.) and feel healthy, giving my body the absolute best fighting chance to keep the immune system healthy and beat this cancer for life. I have given up all meats, caffeine, alcohol, most oils (except Flaxseed and coconut), nuts, dairy, salt, soy, pasta (except sometimes wheat or veggie), processed sugar, chocolate, candy, snack foods, and pretty much anything boxed, canned, or frozen. Now, I eat as much as possible fresh, organically grown fruits and vegetables. I now own a juicer and juice apple, carrot, beet, and other fruits and veggies, and consume a large amount of food via juicing. I make healthy, homemade smoothies of fruits and veggies, enjoy nice salads, cooked veggies, and even dessert (I make ice cream from frozen bananas and fruit (really good) and have my own oatmeal raisin cookies and apple pie recipes, or just have some apple sauce).
I beat one of the rarest, deadliest cancers and I thank God for directing me in the right way to treat my body. Of course, tons of prayer and love from our family and friends have been absolutely overwhelming and are an enormous blessing and have lifted us up in more ways than we will know on this earth. It was very humbling to know that people shared my story with others and that people I did not directly know were praying for me and in fact many small groups at churches and schools lifted me up in prayer.
This kind of support was so appreciated and lifted us up with a peace beyond understanding. So please, share your story with others who can also lift you up in a time of need. There are many survivors and people struggling themselves or with someone they know with cancer at this very moment and they would love to lift you up in their thoughts and prayers. Don’t go through this alone as there is power in numbers and power in prayer.
I hope this information helps you through this overwhelming time. May God bless you and lift you up during your battle.
