About my Journey
Well it’s been a long a road to this point. In 1999, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I had radical mastectomy on my left breast followed by chemotherapy and radiotherapy. When this treatment was finished I was put on the drug tamoxifen. Normally the tamoxifen treatment is followed for five years, but I chose to come off it after one year due to the intolerable side effects that I was experiencing. I recovered very well from this treatment, until 2008 when my wound re-opened.
In february 2009 I was diagnosed of a re-occurance of the original tumour and an additional primary on the right breast with metasteses in the lymph. At this time I was told it was incurable, but with treatment my life could be extended. The treatment suggested was more chemotherapy, radiotherapy and hormonal treatment.
I felt that I could extend my life with changes to diet and lifestyle without the horror of the side effects that remained in my concsiousness all those years later. I began a regime of juicing, raw foods, excluding dairy, meat and alcohol. I supported this regime with meditation and alternative treatments such as acupuncture, herbal medicine and cranio-sacral therapy. I had great energy and was feeling very well.
I also began researching substantial alternative cancer protocols. I contacted the Burzinski clinic but soon realised that the treatment costs were beyond my means. I discovered some great websites including the Cancer tutor .I also came across two great books, The War on Cancer by Mark Sircus and Cancer: Step outside the box by Ty Bollinger. This research broadened my perspective on cancer treatment beyond conventional knowledge and led me to approximately ten targeted cancer treatment protocols worth considering.
I experimented with B17 infusions, chelation therapy, ozone therapy, enzyme therapy, hydrogen peroxide infusions and vitamin c infusions. I also invested in the Ondamed pulse biofeedback electromagnetic machine. All of these techniques have contributed to my outliving my doctor’s expectations.
However, although I was keeping my condition at bay, I began to experience increased lymphatic congestion and the size of the wound at the site of the surgery increased. At this point, I returned to my research on treatment protocols and I was drawn again towards the treatments available at the Burzinski clinic. I came across the amazing stories of some people who attended the Burzinski clinic by raising funds publicly via the internet.
