My Doctor Was Totally Stunned
When I was first diagnosed with thyroid cancer it took a little while for the reality to sink in. Within a few days of the results, I made a decision to not accept this news laying down. I was already taking a small dose of multivitamins daily and drinking fresh homemade juices for inflammation and arthritis of my shoulder. I had previously purchased “Raw Juices Can Save Your Life” which I found to be rather interesting and informative. After looking through the book, I made the decision to increase my juice intake and vitamins to the maximum dose each day. I was hoping by doing this, it may help with my recovery after surgery, not realising what the end result was going to be.
From the time that I had the biopsy done, receiving the news, and to having the surgery, the cancer had died. This is a very first for my surgeon and the pathologists. After both parties met to discuss my case and further treatment, the result they believe was my immune system had actually attacked the cancer and was no longer found alive. The comment was, whatever I did, keep doing it.
So with these results, I still went ahead with treatment under advice from the specialists. I have had further tests since the operation and treatment which have given me great results. I eventually told my surgeon what I did, after being diagnosed and he was totally stunned. During our discussion, he asked me if I would mind giving him the recipes I used during my illness as he was looking into giving them to his other cancer patients.
I will still be under his care for another 5 years with further tests, but he believes with these results my prognosis is great. I believe all of this is the result of positive attitude, early detection and the help of my vitamins and of course the juices.
