My Husband is  65 years old...He we was diagnosed with stage 3 cancer on Jan. 08. There is a story here and I could write a novel, but think it more beneficial to just stick to a summary of what happened and what we did to get past the horrors of cancer.
He had a surgery and 1/4-1/2 of his right lung was removed...They had to break several ribs to do this...a sample was sent to pathology and the report came back to us telling us it was indeed cancer....He was scheduled for chemo and after 6 mo. of insidious treatment was pretty much a vegetable...I have studied alternative health for 30 years so you can imagine the trauma it was to watch and be a part of something so insidious...3 weeks after the last chemo treatment, still another PET scan showed he had 5-6 new tumors in his the same lung...devastation was overwhelming...They told him all they could offer him was more chemo, but he was in such a frightening state of negative  health by then he said no..(actually he said Hell no)...They told him to get his affairs in order and sent him home to die...When all of this started I was to horrified and busy to do any research other than what I had previously known...When it comes to "helping" someone in this field I have found not many are receptive to "Natural health care or cures" ...Anyway I read of a 4 herb tea that had what I thought was a really good record...I bought a pound of essiac and started my Husband on it 2 oz twice a day...we went from eating any and all kids of animal protein to a completely "plant based diet" without exception"....I cannot remember for sure the month (maybe may 09 ) that I called with tears of joy to tell her My Husband's results from a recent test  "there is no detectable cancer" in his body...since than he has had other examinations that agreed with these findings...Today he is a  healthy, Happy man of many interests and pursues them all with amazing strength and focus...He is very much alive and it has been just a little over a year since they found the new tumors, and deemed him terminal... Needless to say my gratitude for this site and the people involved in making the "Real stuff" available to all of us in dire need is great...I constantly seek new ways to Pay it Forward...Lynda of Oregon [Last name deleted to protect privacy].

"We all have the right to benefit from Essiac because no one can stop us making it, no one can stop us taking it and no one can stop us deciding how and when we're going to do it."  [THE ESSIAC BOOK by Mali Klein, 2006] 

"Chemotherapy should be a criminal offense." -- Rene M. Caisse

"I have never claimed that my treatment cures cancer -- although many of my patients, and the doctors with whom I have worked, claim that it does.  My goal has been control of cancer, and alleviation of pain."  -- Rene Caisse, I Was Canada's Cancer Nurse

“Their fruit will serve for food and their leaves for healing.”  Ezekiel 47:12. 

According to the American Medical Association, drugs approved by the FDA kill approximately 100,000 Americans in hospitals every year!  (This is not counting the people killed outside of hospitals.)  According to a 174-page report by the U.S. National Poison Data System the number of people killed in 2009 across America by vitamins, minerals, amino acids or herbal supplements is exactly zero!
