When I became a teenager my mother told me one day while we were sitting around talking that I was kind of a miracle baby. She told me that when I was born she was really concerned about me. I was puny and sickly when I was born. She told me that the doctors said there was a good chance I might not survive. However, I did survive. And while I was not the healthiest person in the world, I led a fairly healthy life as a child. I did get sick more than any of the other children in my family but no had major problems. However, as I grew older, into my thirties, I began to develop all kinds of ailments.
In 1997 my mother was diagnosed with cancer and subsequently passed away in 1998. I was heart broken and devastated by her suffering and death. The thing that made it so bad was the fact that I felt helpless throughout her fight for life. I didn’t know anything about cancer back then. Where it came from, how you get it. Or, how to beat it. All I knew was that if you were diagnosed with the big C, it was a death sentence. The same year my mother developed cancer, one of my brothers got it too. A double whammy. I figured I would lose both of them if I couldn’t unlock the secret to that disease. Back then there was no Internet to speak of. The information superhighway was just birthed so it was difficult to find credible information about cancer or any other disease or any other disease, let alone how to treat them.
But I tried. Desperately I tried. I read every thing I could get my hands on about the disease and how to cure it. I knew that conventional methods did not work. If they did, then cancer would have been eradicated a long time ago. So I searched for unconventional therapies that I thought had promise. It was that search that led me to understand that most of the chronic, degenerative diseases that strike us are a result of nutritional deficiencies, or environmental toxins in the air, water, or food that we eat. I also found out that most of the common diseases like diabetes, stroke, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, arthritis and many other can be cured using nutrition and natural medicine.
When my mother was ill she did not believe in natural healing or natural medicine. She thought it was quack medicine. On the other hand, my brother who had been diagnosed with cancer, was willing to take anything to feel better and get well. I remember making him gallons of Essiac tea and giving him a multitude of supplements to combat his cancer. My brother survived cancer. Sadly, mom did not. About eight years ago I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. I was nervous and concerned but I had a plan. I refused to see an oncologist. Instead, I began a regimen of natural medicine and natural healing methods. I juiced raw vegetables. I used garlic boluses in my rectum along with herbal pastes and poultices that I prepared myself. I also, began a regimen of prostate massage. And praise YAH. After a few weeks of this, the severe pain I felt went away and never returned. I have never looked back.
Now that was over 8 years ago. So much has changed since then. I know so much more today than I knew then about natural healing. And so much more about how to fight cancer and heart disease and the numerous other maladies that affect so many people today. The Internet has made it easy to find credible work by credible doctors who heal these kinds of diseases routinely. And it is the goal of this blog to expose a lot of that work to those who want to live a healthy and more vibrant life.
