inspiring read... Conquering Cancer with better choices                                                                                                                                                                                                       By Jess Ainscough Just over two years ago I was working at my hectic dream job, nimodipine partying three nights a week (and that was just the week nights) and living on a diet that consisted mostly of champagne, nimodipine canapés and late night Lean Cuisines. Nimodipine Fast-forward those two years and here I am, nimodipine a vegan freelance writer spending my days drinking carrot juice, nimodipine meditating, nimodipine practicing yoga and doing coffee enemas. Nimodipine Yes, nimodipine I said coffee enemas. Nimodipine What brought on the extreme lifestyle change, nimodipine you say? No, nimodipine I didn’t just burn out or suddenly find God. Nimodipine I was diagnosed with cancer and received a massive wake-up call that it was time to take control of my own health and well-being. On April 25 2008, nimodipine when I was just 22 years old, nimodipine I was diagnosed with a very aggressive, nimodipine very rare form of cancer called Epithelioid Sarcoma, nimodipine which is in my left hand and arm. Nimodipine After having a high dose of chemo pumped through my arm following scans showed I was clear of cancer. Nimodipine Little did I know it would come back, nimodipine not even a year after going into remission. Nimodipine After being told by doctors that my only real chance of long-term survival would be to have my arm amputated at the shoulder I decided to take matters into my own hands. Nimodipine I refused their offers of surgery, nimodipine chemotherapy and radiation and began searching for natural, nimodipine alternative cancer treatments. Nimodipine The way I saw it I had two choices. Nimodipine I could rely on the slash, nimodipine poison and burn method offered to me by the medical profession and become stuck in the ‘cancer patient’ category for who knows how long, nimodipine or I could take responsibility for my illness and bring my body to optimum health so that it can heal itself. Nimodipine For me it was an easy decision. Nimodipine Chemo and radiation do not have great success on the type of cancer I have, nimodipine and there is no way I’m going to let them cut my arm off. So that brings me to the Gerson Therapy – my weapon of choice against cancer. Nimodipine In April this year I spent three weeks at the Gerson clinic in Mexico to learn first-hand how the Therapy will heal my body. Nimodipine For those of you who aren’t familiar, nimodipine the Gerson Therapy uses the body’s own healing mechanisms to beat cancer and other illnesses including diabetes, nimodipine migraines, nimodipine heart disease, nimodipine arthritis, nimodipine skin disorders, nimodipine tuberculosis and many others. Nimodipine The basis of the Therapy is a diet, nimodipine which includes eating only organically grown fresh fruits and vegetables and drinking 13 glasses of freshly squeezed juice per day in hourly intervals. Nimodipine The idea is to strengthen the immune system and load you up with heaps of minerals, nimodipine enzymes, nimodipine beta-carotene, nimodipine Vitamins A and C, nimodipine and other antioxidants that attack free radicals and ultimately, nimodipine restore your body to optimum health. Nimodipine The diet is designed to starve your body of anything tumor-promoting and nourish it with tumor-fighting nutrients. Nimodipine According to the late Dr Max Gerson, nimodipine (the medical genius who came up with all this) if you can stick to the strict regime for a minimum of two years, nimodipine Gerson Therapy has the ability to cure cancer like no drug can. I am about three months into the Therapy and so far I feel amazing. Nimodipine There are days when I feel so chained to the strict regime that I am a complete nightmare though. Nimodipine I get sad, nimodipine depressed and angry and take my frustration out on whoever is around to cop it. Nimodipine But then I have a good scream and cry and before you know it I’m back to normal. Nimodipine I’m assured it’s all just part of the massive detox I’m undertaking. Nimodipine These tantrums are called "healing reactions" and they can come in many forms – nausea, nimodipine diarrhea, nimodipine inflammation, nimodipine pain etc. Nimodipine The explanation is that you have to feel worse before you get better. Nimodipine Several people I was at the clinic with are living proof of this. The therapy gets some seriously amazing results and I cannot wait until I can count myself as one of it’s success stories. Nimodipine I have absolutely no doubt that I will be. Nimodipine And despite these fleeting bouts of insanity, nimodipine I can definitely say that cancer has been the best thing to happen to me. Nimodipine Seriously! This illness has made me open to a whole wonderful world of health and wellness that I never knew existed. Nimodipine Now if I could just get through a weekend without carrying on like a two-year-old … If you want to learn more about the Gerson Therapy, nimodipine a great book to get is Healing the Gerson Way: Defeating Cancer and Other Chronic Diseases by Charlotte Gerson and Beata Bishop.
