Cancer does not have to be a death sentence. For me it was about the choices that I was being given or lack of them. My whole life I knew that conventional cancer treatments were not for me. I was aged 10 when my friend from round the corner was treated for leukemia with chemotherapy and I watched him wither away from the effects of it. I knew then that was not for me and four decades later I am being offered it as a front line combatant to my cancer
I knew the NHS could not treat my cancer using the natural means that I wanted but the least I was hoping for was a conversation. It was clear from the start that my oncologist did not wish to follow any line of questioning that did not start from her. I was given my options and that was that. After a few months my questions became too much and at the same meeting where I intended to fire my oncologist she beat me to it and fired me
Cancer became my ground zero. A natural healing zone and deadly killing zone operating side by side on a daily basis. It was not easy and was never going to be easy but I was in control and that is what that felt important. More than being a statistic on a someone else’s list of weekly appointments I was free to explore natural healing as much or as little as I liked.
Finally the most important thing is to have faith. Without it you are halfway to being beaten.

The mind can be a powerful ally and best friend treat so trainlike you would your body
