When I was 25 years old, I was diagnosed with Lupus, an auto-immune disease that seriously debilitates the entire body and can ultimately be fatal. I was told the only treatment was steroids and in addition to the difficult side effects I would need to endure, I would not be able to have any more children.
I was devastated. I knew I had to take control and do something beyond what conventional medicine could offer. I began researching alternative treatments, especially herbal therapies, and I consulted with herbalists. I began a daily regimen of herbs that were good for the immune system. Within weeks my lupus symptoms lessened, then gradually disappeared.
Five years later my world turned upside down again as my doctor told me I had Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma with three months to live, which could be stretched to one year if I started chemotherapy immediately. The medical treatment options were risky, life altering, and no one could guarantee me anything except that I would definitely lose the child I was carrying.
I had known people who had done chemotherapy and had vowed in my heart, years previously, that I would never go through what those people went through, nor would I put my family through taking care of me with chemotherapy.
I again turned to herbs with a new focus. Could I prolong my life and spend the last of my days with my family in less pain and greater coherence than I had seen my loved ones have when dying of cancer? I investigated the effects of nutrients and other influences on the major body systems, and I studied herbs to treat my cancer.
I came to realize that our present environment and farming practices severely impact and impede the natural strength and growing processes of the human body. Our bodies are made to adapt and heal themselves, but they can become overwhelmed by excessive chemical additives, refining of our food supply and exposure to pollutants and disease. By supporting the body's defense systems and supplying adequate nutrients, we assist the body to rehabilitate, strengthen, and heal itself.
When I started looking for herbs to treat my illness, I didn't know of anyone who had survived their cancer using such alternative methods. Now I know hundreds of them. Since my complete recovery, I have found I have a passion to share what I have learned by using herbs and principles of healthy living.
This Web Site is designed to make accessible, free of charge, the cancer-fighting Herb Formulas I used, and the steps I followed to heal my cancer. By following the Herb Formulas like a recipe, you can purchase bulk herbs and combine them yourself for an overall cost savings.
This is an informational Web Site only, there is nothing for sale on this site. However, because I have received so many requests for a source of my formulas already capsulated (dried and powdered herbs in capsules) or tinctured (herb nutrients extracted into a liquid and administered by dropper), I will recommend a few sources for quality herbs, formulas and health foods.
I share my story, the herb formulas I used, and my witness that there is hope.
