Colon Cancer Survivor
Theresa was first diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer in 2015. She successfully used a combination of alternative therapies and supplements to shrink her large tumor enough so that it could be surgically removed. During the surgery, however, the surgeon nicked the tumor. She was cancer free for two years, but in the summer of 2018 the cancer returned at the same location, and had metastasized to her bones. She again turned to alternatives, with amazing success!
This Is Theresa’s Story
Larry: Hello Theresa.
Larry: This is Larry with Essense of Life.
Theresa: Hey Larry
Theresa: How you doing?
Larry: I’m doing okay. Are you ready to tell me your experience?
Theresa: Yeah, I kind of jotted it down. Let me get my notes. This is kinda lengthy so you can edit what you need to use.
Larry: Okay, dear.
First Colon Cancer Diagnosis
In August 2015 I was diagnosed with colorectal cancer stage 3. My surgeon wanted me to take radiation and chemo. I asked her why. She said it shrinks the tumor and makes it easier to remove. Well I had no faith in chemo for colon cancer so I told her “no” but give me a few weeks and I’ll shrink it myself.
Shrinking the Tumor with Alternatives
I went on the Johanna Budwig diet and alternatives to boost my immunity and fight the tumor: AHCC, graviola, colostrum, curcumin, apigenin, vitamin c, and two other supplements and daily baking soda enemas. In six weeks the tumor had shrunk 30%. It had been outside the colon wall and then it was all inside the colon wall. It was a large tumor and I elected to have it removed. The surgeon nicked the tumor during the surgery which allowed cancer cells to escape into my abdomen. Then I was cancer free for two years.
Second Colon Cancer Diagnosis
In July 2018 my CEA test suddenly jumped from 1 to 5. A sigmoidoscopy showed a new tumor in the same spot. An MRI showed it had moved to my tailbone and lower spine. My surgeon said it was inoperable, and chemo and radiation might buy me some time, but I should get my affairs in order.
Cancer Free Yet Again with Alternatives
I again went on the Budwig Diet and alternatives that I had used before, plus cesium chloride. And also I used a Royal Rife bioenergy machine.
Nine months later the tumors were gone. I had three lymph nodes that were involved and they were back to normal. My MRI’s, CT scans, CEA tests, sigmoidoscopies were all normal. I did take proton radiation during that time, and a mild pill form of chemo, because my doctor said that if I didn’t follow her recommendations, she had no reason to treat me. She would drop me as a patient. Regular radiation would have destroyed my bladder and my anus, plus other organs in the area. Proton radiation is hundreds of times safer.
I saw two different surgeons after all those treatments, and after my MRI test came back normal, and two different surgeons said there was nothing there for them to operate on. That was April 2019 when I again became cancer free. I continue to monitor it with sigmoidoscopy and CEA tests, and so far [as of November 2019] I’ve been in the clear.
It’s A Life and Death Decision
I share my story on FaceBook to others fighting cancer and some are very interested and some people respond with “I’ll check into it.” Those people I know will never commit to the regime that I did. I am very saddened by their response because I know the majority will end up dying from cancer. But I can’t force them to go against their doctor’s advice, or to put their faith in a diet and strange-sounding alternatives. It’s a life and death decision. It’s expensive and there’s very little professional support or instructions available.
I really had no choice. My doctor said there was not much she could do. Basically I should have spend the summer of 2019 lying in my bed slowly dying. Instead I was out kayaking, gardening and traveling. I still monitor with tests and continue to take AAHC, colostrum, curcumin, and some other supplements, but I am cancer free!
Surviving Modern Medicine
The main thing I learned is that if you want to survive modern medicine you have to observe, question, and research. And keep in mind doctors are forced to follow protocol designated by the AMA. They are not allowed to recommend any alternatives.
Poor Success Rate of Chemo
And chemo itself kills a lot of people. The success rate of chemo in colon cancer is less than 2%. The AMA and the FDA knows it – knows that it’s basically more harmful than helpful in some types of cancer. But it’s ordered as protocol. I refused Folfox and got a couple oncologists very angry with me. I did take the pill form when my doctor insisted, and almost a year later I still have complications from it! My fingernails split and fall apart. Personally I will not take chemo again for colon cancer. Not ever.
Don’t Let Doctors Intimidate You
My advice is to use alternatives if you want to beat cancer. And don’t let doctors intimidate you. Find a doctor that’s willing to order the tests you need to make sure you don’t run your potassium too low and to see if your tumors are changing. Stand your ground and use the best of both modern medicine and the alternatives found in nature.
This is my story and I hope it helps others.
Larry: Well I really appreciate you sharing your story with me and everything. And I hope that it helps a lot of people.
It Breaks My Heart…
Yeah, I do too! Like I said you know, it breaks my heart…it breaks my heart when people say they have cancer, or their loved one has cancer, and they’re dying and please pray for them. You know, I believe in prayer. Prayer helped get me through these problems too. But at the same time when I tell them you have to do this, you have to try this. Don’t just 100% rely on the doctors, because people die from the treatments that they’re given, the Folfox.
Chemo kills a lot of people! Directly kills a lot of people! I’m beginning to think that doctors are serial killers, honestly. The number of people they pump that poison directly into their chest, it’s appalling. It’s appalling to me. But you know I tell the people, and some of them are interested, but the majority they just – they just brush it off like “Oh she must be crazy” you know. “If that was true it would be all over the internet”.
Well you know what, I’ve been trying to put it all over the internet! And when they walk away and say “I’ll check into it” I know…I know that they’re going to die of cancer. It breaks my heart to see it, but you can’t force people to do that.
Cesium Chloride is a Miracle
Larry: Theresa tell me, what do you think of the pH therapy and the cesium – how it played a role in what you did?
What do I think of that? I think it’s a miracle! I think it’s a miracle. I think that cesium chloride alkalizing my body and making it a hostile environment for the tumors, I think that was a major factor in my eradicating cancer cells. If I have cancer again, I will definitely use cesium chloride. I have no doubt about it.
Larry: Did you get the support that you needed while you were using cesium chloride.
Yes, you guys gave us a lot of information. Very helpful information. My husband is the one who actually studies all these things for me. Because his mind is geared towards that sort of thing. And so he studied this and he’s the one who says okay you’ve got to do this, you’ve got to do that. But you know, if we had a questions, all I had to do was to pick up the phone and give you guys a call. And you were very helpful. And personally, Larry, I think you’re brilliant. You have a brilliant mind about this. Anything I ask you, you have the answer for right there. You don’t have to say “well hold on, let me find out”. Larry knows.
Larry: Well thank you for that (laughs). I appreciate that.
Is there anything else I can…
Larry: Well, no, that’s it. I think I’ll let you go now. And I really really appreciate it.
The Whole Truth and Nothing But the Truth
Okay, well if I can be of help to you or, you know to get this word out there, just let me know. If you need me to testify I will definitely testify that I have told you the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
I would love to see more people not lose their loved ones to cancer. I’m at the point now where I’m very disgusted by the doctors and oncologists. And I think, like I said, I consider them to be serial killers, because they know that stuff is killing people and they continue to push it on people when …
Don’t You Want Your Patients to Live?!
You know what, the doctors never really said anything positive. When I go there and all of a sudden I’m cancer free, they just brushed it off like it never happened! And I’m like… I’m like you know, hey people, you told me to go home to get my affairs in order that I should be dead in a year, and I’m out here kayaking and traveling and having a great summer! Don’t you want your patients to live?!
Larry: That’s a good question.
It’s Terrifying to Me
That’s the difference. Yeah, it’s terrifying. It’s terrifying to me to know that money rules medical care. It’s all about money.
Larry: I know, 30 or 40 people per month die using chemo. It’s sad that people don’t know more about this.
Yeah. You know, there’s a lot of people – I mean not just one or two – but a lot of people that have said to me or my husband “Yeah, my wife had cancer, and she started chemo, and she died on the second dose.”
Yeah. You know, they put a damn hole in your chest going to your main vein. They pump poison directly into your heart. What to you think it’s going to do to you?!
Larry: I know.
Oh. It’s terrifying.
Absolutely terrifying. And I told them no, you’re not putting that in my chest. You’re not doing that to me.
And I had an oncologist honest to God that wrote a nasty letter in my record. I had been in Emergency about a couple weeks before that for sciatica, and they sent me home with a prescription for Oxycontin. And I told him, the oncologist when he came in, that I was taking it. And he wrote in my chart that I was getting Oxycontin from an alternative source.
Indicating…suggesting that I was out on the street buying drugs. And I had been in the Emergency Room at the same damn hospital just about three week before that! And they determined that my problem with sciatica was so severe they sent me home with opioids. And he wrote in my chart that I was getting it from alternative sources. That’s the oncologist. And you know why he wrote that? Because I refused to take his damn poison!
Larry: (laughs) That’s a shame. That’s a shame.
Yeah, it’s listed in my chart right now. It’s still there. It’s still there. And anyone treating me in the future has access to that information. And it’s you know suggesting that I go out and I buy drugs on the street. Hell no, I don’t buy drugs on the street! I don’t even know what half of those things are out there they’re talking about. And they drug test me. They drug test me because I have neuropathy in my feet and my legs and so I have to go to a pain clinic. And they drug test me. And guess what, it’s negative!
Larry: (laughs) That’s good!
So I’m fighting doctors day in and day out all the time. I’m fighting doctors with this garbage. Did you know that chemo drugs are the only drugs that a doctor can buy directly from the manufacturer?
Larry: No, I didn’t know that.
Theresa: Did you know that?
Yeah. Yeah, my husband told me about that. That chemo drugs they can buy them directly from the manufacturer. So they don’t have to go through a distributor like all the other drugs that are used. No, chemo drugs they can order straight from Pfizer, Bayer, whoever is making them.
Larry: Wow. And they’re expensive.
Chemotherapy vs pH Therapy
Oh yeah. The chemo pill that I was taking – 30 days of that chemo pill was about $2,000-3,000 I believe. for 30 days. That’s two pills…that’s one pill twice a day for 30 days. I forget it, but it was in the thousands of dollars for those pills. You know that poison… all they’re doing is getting a box of d-con and putting it in a pill you know (laughs).
Larry: I can’t believe insurance companies don’t want to save the money because pH therapy you can start with it for less than $300 a month. And insurance companies would save a ton of money if they started people on the pH therapy before they decide to do anything else.
You know the thing though is that the doctors are not going to cooperate. The oncologist, their purpose is to feed you poison. They make hundreds of thousands of dollars a year, each one of those guys feeding you poison. Do you think he’s going to give us his job? Do you think he’s gonna go birth babies instead?
No. No, they’re going to go down fighting tooth and nail.
Larry: For sure. Well I appreciate this interview and everything. And I want you to have a great day.
Okay thank you very much Larry. Good luck with it.
