From The Richardson Cancer Prevention Diet by Janet Starr Hull, PhD, CN
Learning about other people’s experiences is a great way to help when you are healing from a disease diagnosis.
What works for one person may not always be the right solution for your personal needs, but you can always come away with new information and innovative ideas that you may never have thought about before.
I have lots of case histories in my book The Richardson Cancer Prevention Diet to share with you. What other people have done to succeed in restoring their health can help you gain confidence and knowledge as you travel amid your own health challenges.
Vanishing Skin Cancer
Lori wanted to know if there was anything nutritional that would heal the black mole growing rapidly on her left thigh. It had a gray furry coating on it and was about the size of a dime. She did not want a scar from surgical removal, but confessed that her dermatologist wanted to cut it off, along with several other moles he was concerned about.
A biopsy showed the growth was pre-cancerous.
Written in the book Vitamin C and Cancer by H.L.Newbold, M.D., excellent results were obtained in drying up skin cancers using a 50/50 mixture of sodium ascorbate powder and a vanishing cream made of aloe vera, H2O2, glycerin, and olive oil.
Lori decided to try it, and applied the mixture topically every night, covering it with a bandage.
At the end of one week, there was noticeable reduction in size, and the gray furry coating disappeared. In three weeks, the growth had vanished, leaving no trace of where it had been.
After three months, Lori returned to her doctor who couldn’t find the growth.
Needless to say, Lori was more than happy.
She continues to use the cream, and she detoxes regularly, along with maintaining her daily nutritional regimen. The cream and detox program help keep her blood and skin clear of any pre-cancerous growths.
Good work, Lori!
Cancer of the Prostate
David is a petroleum engineer. He never stopped to think that the many chemicals he is exposed to in his job could be toxic or carcinogenic.
At age 62, David developed a hard knot on his prostate and had it checked. The biopsy came back malignant. A scan revealed that metastasis had occurred within the surrounding lymph nodes.
David elected to begin a healthy dietary program and detox, and initially refused the radiation his doctor suggested right away. His physician offered little hope of a complete recovery, even with radiation.
David religiously followed a Detoxification Program. After one week, he called to report that his skin was giving off a very strong odor. He smelled like petrochemicals.
Three showers a day and trying different deodorants did not stop the odor. He called to ask about the cause of his horrible body odor. “Could this be the toxic chemicals coming out of my body?” he asked.
This very strong odor continued for several weeks. I told him that heavy smokers with lung cancer frequently have an odor of stale smoke during detoxification, and painters typically smell like alcohol.
David started the detoxification program, which included taking a natural form of vitamin C, not from corn, up to bowel tolerance. He topped out at 60 grams of vitamin C per day. He gradually decreased the dose to 30 grams per day, which he discovered is the daily dose he needed to regularly prevent his high toxic load from reestablishing, and possibly predisposing him to cancer.
He remained at this level of vitamin C for several months, and, of course, he reported that he has been cancer free for over three years.
Way to go, David!
So you see, people who have succeeded at restoring their health love to share their stories to remind others that you, too, can have some control over the toughest health challenges. Nutritional solutions do work – some work better for some than for others, but you’ll never know until you try.
