Death Claim

About 2 months ago when I was in pain and couldn’t go to work and earn my income. I contacted my insurance to apply for my income protection claim. The gentleman over the phone asked if my cancer is terminal. I told him my oncologist said my cancer is incurable, so is it terminal? Then to my surprise he advised I should apply for Death Claim!

I was sad to hear this over the phone but then I told myself this is actually great for me as the death claim would help to lighten my financial burden so I could focusing on healing myself and love myself! How great is this? And who could actually eligible to claim this death claim when he or she still not dead yet! Then when I received the claim form, in order to meet the definition of Terminal Illness, my life expectancy should be less then 12 months! So, I get my oncologist to help with the medical claim form, she said for my case, the life expectancy of my bladder cancer is 18 to 24 months and I have ‘survived’ ( I don’t like the word survive because I am not surviving! I am living my life!) for 32 months and I should be able to meet the terminal illness definition as my ‘death sentence’ is overdue! I am very happy that my oncologist is helping me with the claim. As for me, I do not believe I have 12 months to live!

The only catch is I would not be able to be insured again as I have died once! But then, why should I need to be insured again? I am now waiting for my claim to be approved! Interesting!

As for my income protection claim, it has been approved and enough to cover my daily expenses so it all goes very well. For those of you who do not have income protection, I would suggest to look into it as income protection is to cover when you are total disable or partial disable not that you are jobless. Insurance is to protect your loved one and you.

Do not feel sad reading this post because I am lodging my death claim, the reason for my blog is to share my exciting cancer journey and this is just part of the exciting ONE!

Self_love = Selfish ???

IMG_0045We don’t like to be called Selfish because we believe Self_love is Selfish…at least this is what I always believe!

I was brought up in the culture of giving. Save and give the best to the younger and older. I was also taught not to be selfish. Since I am the eldest in the family, so I became a natural giver. So I relate giving is loving, you should give others first which means you should love others first? This is what I  always believe self_love is selfish!

Until recently my cancer progressed and I was in so much pain and couldn’t do anything then I turned more to myself and asked if I love myself? I also came across Anita Moorjani’s book Dying to be me and Sai Baba’s teaching, they both talked about the importance of self-love!

Self-love is not selfish as what I have been lead to believe! Self-love is to love yourself unconditionally, without judgment and just being yourself and live the life you want and not the life you think other people think you should be! Since I have not been loving myself unconditionally then I never appreciate my body that is why I have cancer! That makes sense to me now! Again, I made myself sick!

Again, cancer is a gift to me and this time the cancer progressed is even a bigger gift to me! I like to share good news, I was reluctant to share my latest health situation as I was not being truthful to myself. I was afraid people judge me and ask me why? why? why? I always like to prove I can heal the cancer and I have been trying so hard to heal the cancer because I told myself and to you all I can. This time the cancer progressed and I viewed myself as a loser! I disappoint you all! The Gerson diet is so hard, I am no longer follow as I was living in so much fear everyday thinking that if I cheat the cancer will come back and now it happens as the results of living in fear!

I believe learning to love, accept, forgive, value, respect, and take responsibility for ourselves in every moment of our life is the key to healing and transforming all of our emotional, physical, spiritual pain, illness, and suffering. Relating to ourselves with unconditional love, kindness, and compassion is the key to transforming and healing our past, and so it is therefore the key to consciously creating all that our heart desires here in the present.

I believe we were not born to suffer. Nor were we born to settle for anything less than the best in all aspects of our life. In fact, we were born to grow, to learn, to create beauty, to love wholeheartedly, to  live fearlessly and enjoying our lives to the fullest each and every day.

I also believe every one of us is destined to live as a unique, free, and full expression of who and what we truly are. We are destined to realize our greatest potential in this lifetime and consciously create a life that is deeply aligned with our own heart and soul. Each of us is destined to live a life that we truly love; one that is full of purpose, passion, consciousness, peace, joy, health, wealth and unconditional love for ourselves, for others, and for all of Life. Just being ourselves and live the life we want! This is what I am experiencing now! I used to think I would be very uneasy and bored if I am not working because I would feel useless! Now, first time in life that I really enjoy not working and just being and let things happen. My finance has been taking care of and I am now loving myself more and more each and everyday. (I will share more how by just being not doing my finance has been taking care of in my next post! )

I also believe once I love myself unconditionally then I would be able to give my love unconditionally, because we cannot give what we do not have! By loving myself unconditionally and stop judging and criticizing myself. My body starts healing because Love heals………

So, do you love yourself unconditionally ?

Sending you all unconditional love……..

Incredible Chaotic Bombay

Today is my last day in Bombay…..I don’t dislike India but I haven’t yet fell in with India. Maybe one day I would!

It is incredible to see how the people here cope with their daily life in such a populated, congested, polluted, chaotic, hard…..environment and yet they are still coping extremely well and happy….they just accept and be okay with it! Traffic is congested, nobody follow the traffic rules, cars run over the pedestrian crossing, road condition is bad. Homeless people everywhere, they sleep on the street, no one care. Young mothers with kids every where beg for money, milk powder. Dogs and cows are everywhere on the street looking for food. Why ? Because Bombay is The Dream city, people come here to find their dream!

I love my home, Malaysia because all the people I love are there. But when I am home, I miss Melbourne, I miss my comfy, quite, clean, neat second home! I have been given myself lots of excuses that I couldn’t do this and that due to the heat, the noise back home in Malaysia. Bombay shows me it is possible to do everything and anything in a chaotic environment! How….just be patient and be okay with whatever happens…..nothing work smoothly in Bombay and they are preferably ok with it! Amazing! They don’t get mad, they don’t get aggressive. They are just Okay!

I am going to do the same with my pain, just be okay and be happy…..just like Bombay! The Incredible Chaotic Bombay!

It is amazing….free and peaceful….! You might consider trying!

See you again Bombay! I might fall in love with you next time!

A Roadmap to Healing and Living….

It was a huge shock when you were told you have cancer….the fear, the why, the unknown….you were so sad and yet have to find a way to break the news to your loved one…all those questions, how, why ????

I never dream that I would have cancer because I was healthy and fit. I never try to understand cancer…guess because I was avoiding the C. This post is to share my experience with you on how to lay out a roadmap to healing and living with cancer.

Cancer is not like a heart attack…it just happens and you don’t have the time to make an informed decision with your treatment. As long as you control your emotion and your diet then you still have times to ‘shop’ for options.

From my experience, your oncologist will only suggest chemotherapy, surgery or radiotherapy because these are what they learnt.

The following are the questions you should ask your oncologist if they suggest you with either one of the above treatment:

Overall Survivor Rate –  Overall survival is a term that denotes the chances of staying alive for a group of individuals suffering from a cancer. It denotes the percentage of individuals in the group who are likely to be alive after a particular duration of time. At a basic level, the overall survival is representative of cure rates.

1. What is the overall survival rate if I have chemo/radio/surgery?

2. What was the statistic sample based on? My oncologist told me my bladder cancer statistic was based on Caucasian Male! Surprise!

3. What are the side effects? Chemo might increase the risk of heart disease!

Disease-Free Survival – In cancer, the length of time after primary treatment for a cancer ends that the patient survives without any signs or symptoms of that cancer. In a clinical trial, measuring the disease-free survival is one way to see how well a new treatment works.

1. What is the overall disease-free survival rate if I have chemo/radio/surgery?

2. What was the statistic sample based on?

3. What are the side effects?

Do Nothing!

1. What will happen to me?

Always seek second opinion and ask the same questions. When you have all the answers, write them all on  a big white board and discuss with your family and loved one.

Is survival good enough for you? or you want to be disease free? Can you cope with the side effects? How to cope with the side effects?

Do nothing and seek “alternative” treatment or Natural treatment like what I chose Gerson Therapy, but can you cope with Gerson?

All of these questions will help you lay out a roadmap to healing the cancer and living a life you chose. Take control of your life! Be a Smart “Patient”!

Vitamin Qi

qiQi or Energy…it has no form, no color, no smell…you can’t see, you can’t smell, you can’t touch…..you can only feel….feel with your heart….it can make you feel extremely calm, relax and light but it can also make you feel extremely uncomfortable, emotional, restless……but don’t get it wrong, this is where the healing begins….

I believe in Qi but I never really get to experience the existence of Qi, because I had so much excuses not to learn, I was always busy with work, with shopping making myself pretty, with all those unimportant things in life, I had all the wrong priorities in life! Last April, my friend introduced me to Zhi Neng Qi Gong and I found Sheng Zhong and learnt from him. I wasn’t really practicing much as again set all the wrong priorities in life! Last November due to work stress, I started getting back pain and my swollen lymph nodes were getting bigger and harder….not a good sign!

I decided to try Qi Therapy, I contacted Sheng Zhong and had been seeing him every week since mid November 2012. He channeled the external qi via his body to my body, he also guided me to practice more Zhi Neng Qi Gong, how to visualise and merge with Qi, also practicing wall squatting. After 2 weeks of wall squatting (20 squat x 5 times a day) and daily Qi Gong practice, I started feeling the Qi

Before meal

Before meal

flowing within my body. Last Christmas when everyone was busy eating and drinking, I managed to reach 500 wall squat (200 in the morning + 300 in the afternoon) a day…..I was overwhelmed with the Qi reaction….I feel the Qi when I am sitting, driving, sleeping and standing….it was so powerful and amazing….and this Qi reaction actually made me feel extremely uncomfortable because the Qi went deep rooted into my skin, body, meridian and bone to heal the source of my illness…..it is like peeling layer upon layer of my illness, you feel better one day and the more I do the wall squat and qi gong then the qi reaction come back again and heal the next level. Only one and a half month….and the result is phenomenal from my CT scan results.

I take lots and lots of vitamins for my dietary healing to strengthen my immune and digesting system, before meal I take 4 pancreatin enzyme, 2 acidol pepsin and 4 probiotic to help my digesting system. After meal, I take 4 CQ10, 2 niacin (B3), 3 liver capsules, 8 spirulina, 10 chlorella and 2 megazyme forte. 3 times a day! I inject myself with B12 everyday for the past 2 years! You can do the math of how much vitamins I had taken for the past 2 years! In addition, the juicing and the enema and the rabbit foods…..lots and lots of time and love spending in healing my illness!

Dietary healing helped dissolving the tumor cells and restored my body’s defense system, this method is all about me taking control of my health and life. Lots of time, energy, money and efforts. I chose this method not because I have no faith in modern medicine; chemo, radiotherapy still cure cancer but I would rather take responsibility and control of my life than handed my life to someone else!

After meal

After meal

Qi healing not only heal my illness but my life…..during the qi reaction…..I experienced lots of emotional reaction….it is such a remarkable journey..

Vitamin Qi is free and we all have it within our body….just do not know how to activate it and let it flows…..if you are interested…start with wall squatting. Warning…..only Chinese and Asian able to squat without any effort, because of our gene and ‘squatting toilet’! My late grandma who was 80 years old still used squat toilet!

My B12 injection!

My B12 injection! Fun of injecting yourself!

Happy Squatting!

Lots of love,

Higher Self…Lower Self….what about Middle Self?

Everyone of us want to be in The Higher Self but we always trap in The Lower Self (The Ego). My cancer journey helps me discover and nurture The Higher Self but The Lower Self keep pulling me off the track and trying to derail me! I think sometimes I fall in between…The Middle Self?

For those we don’t know about my exciting cancer journey…just a summary…doctors gave me a death sentence, I used diet (Gerson Therapy) to heal my cancer. After 3 months of intensive detox, juicing and vitamins. My bladder tumor gone and I am now working on my lymph nodes. This has been 2 years. No chemotherapy, no radiotherapy nor surgery!

The past 2 years I have been focusing on healing The Lower Self, which is my physical body, my tumor…as I believe we all do as we can feel, see and touch! Impressive results! Lots of hard work and dedication as Gerson is a very labor intensive ‘program’. My life changed completely! I feel like I am living in FEAR as I am unable to eat this, eat that! I have to constantly doing my coffee enemas, taking vitamins, juicing etc. My everyday work is juicing, eating, coffee enema and taking vitamins! This is now become my life…and I am ok with it! But inside me…I have the fear if I don’t do this or if I cheat then the cancer will come back! I don’t want to live in fear!

I started relaxing my diet…but still continue with the enema and juicing and vitamins when I feel like! Recently I have back pain and went for my 4 months review. I knew that if I told my oncologist, she was going to make a big deal and yes she did. She wanted me to go for a CT scan.

I am now moving from healing The Lower Self to The Middle Self then The Higher Self….I am practicing my mind to heal my soul….this is what exactly my blog is all about…healing the soul, the mind and the rest will follow…..it is a very big and brave step that I take…as we always fall into The Lower Self!

I am sick because I made myself sick! Why? Because I need attention! Who doesn’t like attention! I need attention from my parents, my family, my friends…..well….now I have all the attention and the healing start! Does this sound like you?

I started appreciating my parents and my family. I want to go home more, I want to spend more time with my parents and family. (FYI, I migrated to Australia and my parents are in Malaysia) I have a physical home here in Australia but my home is still HOME in Malaysia! I still recall when I attended my Australian Citizenship ceremony, a question suddenly popped up in my mind ” Where do I want to be buried when I die?’ My immediate answer is Malaysia!

I am sick because my body is not in harmony with my mind and soul….not in balance, just like the Yin and Yang. How to balance the Yinyinyang2 and Yang? Energy, Energy is Love, Love myself, Forgive myself and practice gratitude! I have been also practice Zhi Neng Qi Gong and I am now more sensitive and aware of the energy…it is so amazing and powerful….I can feel the energy ………just like I am the energy and the energy is me! It is just so peaceful and joyful!

So, am I gliding towards The Higher Self or I am still cruising in The Middle Self? or do I really care? as long as I am not in The Lower Self!

Would love to hear from you if you are in either The Lower Self, The Middle Self or The Higher Self?

Love,

What to expect after Detox!

Vegetable-Hair“My brain is not working, I need a coffee!” Sound like you? I used to love coffee, I drink coffee in the morning, after meal and before bed! But now I hate coffee, well…except coffee enema! I do love the smell of coffee, but just can’t drink it! Same as tea and wine! Why ? Thanks to my extensive detoxification through coffee enema ! Sound weird?
Not only coffee, I can’t take oily food and processed food now. My body rejects these toxins when I have my coffee enema. I had severe stomach pains and nausea! This is very common and it is called healing reaction and sometimes called a “healing crisis”!

The severity and/or number of healing reactions you will experience depends on how often your body has been exposed to toxins and/or been traumatized during your lifetime and how much detoxifying and healing the body accomplished at the time. This reaction means you are succeeding in ridding your body of toxic minerals, chemicals, bacteria, viruses, and parasites and a much desired “healing” is taking place. Every drugless healing practitioner is well aware of the healing reaction phenomenon. This is also similar to Qi reaction. I will include in the next topic and Qi reaction as I am currently experiencing Qi reaction! When I had my first healing reaction, the whole staff in the clinic rejoice with me! But I am telling you, the feeling was really crap! I had severe nausea, fever, lack of appetite and severe bloating.

The first healing crisis is usually relatively short, since the body is not yet able to carry out serious healing and it is only just beginning to respond. Along with the attack on malignant tissues, the body also begins to heal old injuries, fractures, lumpy scars and serious conditions including long standing high blood pressure.

After 3 months of intensive detox, my old scars disappeared, my skin softer and smoother…and my taste buds and sense of smell changed!

I used to wear perfume, because I like the ‘artificial’ smell but now I just run away when I smell perfume or any other artificial smell, like air refresher, paint, cleaning detergent, anything that is not ‘NATURE’ !

We were born with full functional taste buds and sense of smell. Just like a baby! Over the years, we polluted ourselves with salt, sugar, artificial flavor, coloring, alcohol, food cosmetic etc. Our taste buds become less sensitive and we want more and more taste in our food! In addition to food, we put toxins chemical on our body, lotion, cosmetics, hair colouring, deodorant, the list go on……no wonder we are getting sicker and sicker! This is all because we are misinformed, not that we wanted to ‘poison’ ourselves.

Well, organic food is expensive! Everything that is ‘Organic’ is expensive! I used to think that as well. But now, every time I buy organic, I told myself I am investing in my HEALTH , the best investment compare to share market and property! Since my diet changed to organic, non processed, no or less oil, no artificial favour and colouring. My home is also cleaner, especially I don’t cook oily food, I don’t need toxins detergent to wash my dishes, just like my mum said, very easy to clean my dishes, just rinse it! Good for environment! Even I spent more money on organic food but now I don’t need to buy washing detergent and cleaning products!

As for my body, I save lots of money on the skin care, all those expensive toxins skin care, moisturiser, makeups, mask,

Toxins In Cosmetic

Toxins In Cosmetic

facial, etc. I threw all my skin care product, lipstick, makeup, no more facial! Beauty is from within! I use organic rosehip oil for my face and organic moisuriser during the day and some organic mineral foundation powder and eyebrow pencil! At night, I use organic coconut oil for my face and body….yes I smell coconut! Since I don’t use toxins chemical products on my body, I don’t need to use toxins chemical products to cleanse my face and body! Again, save the environment! My body doesn’t smell because I don’t eat acidic food, like meat, dairy, coffee, tea anything that taste delicious!

So, these are what you will expect after the Detox…not just any kind detox, a proper, intensive detox!

For mums, please please don’t add salt or sugar to your baby’s  food because baby has the ‘cleanest’ body with very sensitive taste and sense of smell!

For ladies, please try to use organic skin care because our skin is the largest organ of our body and since it is porous, it absorbs whatever you put on it. Be kind to your skin.

For gentlemen, please try to use natural deodorant as the conventional deodorant contains perfume and aluminium. These toxins get carried straight into your lymphatic system. Body odour is caused by “toxins” being released, you should let it out rather than suppressed it. Eat well, then you don’t need deodorant.

Love,

Coffee Enema…anyone?

What is Coffee Enema? An enema is “a fluid injected into the rectum for the purpose of clearing out the bowel, or of administering drugs or food.” The word itself comes from the Greek en-hienai, meaning to “send or inject into.” The enema has been called “one of the oldest medical procedures still in use today.” Tribal women in Africa, and elsewhere, routinely use it on their children. The earliest medical text in existence, the Egyptian Ebers Papyrus, (1,500 B.C.) mentions it. Millennia before, the Pharaoh had a “guardian of the anus,” a special doctor one of whose purposes was to administer the royal enema.

The Greeks wrote of the fabled cleanliness of the Egyptians, which included the internal cleansing of their systems through emetics and enemas. They employed these on three consecutive days every month said Herodotus (II.77) or at intervals of three or four days, according to the later historian Diodorus. The Egyptians explained to their visitors that they did this because they “believed that diseases were engendered by superfluities of the food”, a modern-sounding theory!

Enemas were known in ancient Sumeria, Babylonia, India, Greece and China. American Indians independently invented it, using a syringe made of an animal bladder and a hollow leg bone. Pre-Columbian South Americans fashioned latex into the first rubber enema bags and tubes. In fact, there is hardly a region of the world where people did not discover or adapt the enema.

In pre-revolutionary France a daily enema after dinner was de rigueur. It was not only considered indispensable for health but practiced for good complexion as well. Louis XIV is said to have taken over 2,000 in his lifetime. For centuries, enemas were a routine home remedy. Then, within living memory, the routine use of enemas died out. The main times that doctors employ them nowadays is before or after surgery and childbirth. Difficult and potentially dangerous barium enemas before colonic X rays are of course still a favorite of allopathic doctors.

The coffee enema is the most surprising and bizarre element of the Gerson Therapy. Without this simple tool of detoxification, the Gerson method wouldn’t work.

The moment a patient is put on the full therapy, the combined effect of the food, the juices and the medication causes the immune system to attack and kill tumor tissue, besides working to flush out accumulated toxins from the body tissues. All these great clearing-out procedure carries the risk of overburdening and poisoning the liver, which in a cancer patient is bound to be already damaged and debilitated. It was this recognition that prompted Dr. Max Gerson introduced them into cancer therapy in the 1930s.

But why coffee? In the 1920s German scientists found that a caffeine solution could open the bile ducts and stimulate the production of bile in the liver of experimental animals. Dr. Max Gerson used this clinically as part of a general detoxification regimen, first for tuberculosis, then cancer. Caffeine, he postulated, will travel up the hemorrhoidal to the portal vein and then to the liver itself. Gerson noted some remarkable effects of this procedure. For instance, patients could dispense with all pain-killers once on the enemas. Many people have noted the paradoxical calming effect of coffee enemas. And while coffee enemas can relieve constipation, Gerson cautioned:

“Patients have to know that the coffee enemas are not given for the function of the intestines but for the stimulation of the liver.”

It is important to realize while the patient is holding the coffee enema in his or her colon for the suggested 12 to 15 minutes, the body’s entire blood supply passes through the liver every 3 minutes (i.e. 4 to 5 times in all), carrying poisons picked up from the tissues. These are then released through the bile ducts due to the stimulation of the caffeine.

However, in order to leave the body, these toxins still have to travel through the small intestine ( 7m or 25 feet), through the colon (1.5m or 5 feet) and out via the rectum and the anus. Naturally, on this long trip, a small amount of the released toxins is reabsorbed into the system and can cause the patient discomfort, especially in the early stage of the therapy. So, when I first began the therapy, I have to take 4 enemas a day to keep up with the elimination process and also Castor Oil Enema (will take about it next time). After two years, I think I had took about 3000 enemas including Castor Oil enema. Now, I takes two enemas daily and one castor oil enema weekly. Coffee enema is now part of my life and I feel great after the enema.

In summary, Gerson Therapy used fresh food, juices and the medication causes the immune system to dissolve tumor tissue and flush out accumulated toxins from the body tissues. Coffee enema is to help the liver release the toxins. My earlier topic about detoxification shown the toxins released through my left arm and leg as my tumor was on my left bladder.

I hope now you know more about coffee enema and start appreciate its function rather than attack and ridicule it!

Coffee enema…anyone?

Is your body under attack?

Do you know that our body is a fascinating living miracle comprises of living cells whose every part is closely connected to every other part? Each of its cell has its own intelligence and function in the total system. Our body also has several built-in defense system that keep our body in the state of homeostasis and keep us healthy and functioning! The Body Defense System is as important as The Country Defense System.

Let us explore this Defense System in depth!

The Immune System

The Immune System

When we are feeling well, we don’t give much thought to our immune system or what it does. Everyday our body are constantly attacks by germs, viruses and parasites that carry disease. The Immune System is the first line of defense which helps protect us from getting sick. I had cancer because my defense system failed to launch! Our body are made-up of extremely small units called cells. The Immune System too is made up of specialised cells and they are call immune cells.

Our blood is red because it contains red blood cells called erythrocytes (eri-throw-sites). However, it also contains white blood cells or leukocytes (loo-co-sites). It is these white blood cells that work as part of the immune system. Because blood circulates throughout our entire body, white bloods cells are present everywhere too. The places where the white blood cells are particularly concentrated are the lymph nodes and spleen, there are important because they are the sites which the immune system launches when you have an infection. However, the main basic component of the system is located in the bone marrow. B cells are made in the bone marrow. B cells produce special weapons called antibodies which stick to a pathogen and help the immune system to destroy it. T cells (helper T cells and killer T cells)  are made in the special organ near the heart called the thymus. Helper T cells help B cells to produce antibodies and also boost the ability of macrophages to attack pathogens. Killer T cells, are hit men of the white blood cells family. They bump off any cells that have been infected by a virus.

As all other parts of the organism, the immune system is made up of cells that needs to be nourished. They require a full complement of minerals, enzymes and vitamins in their natural form which is easily assimilated.

The Enzyme System  

Enzymes are the key to life. No enzymes, no life. We destroy all the digestive enzymes in our food by cooking and baking, and thus the body has to draw the necessary enzymes to digest this dead food from the body organs which in turn become unbalanced. All processed foods are also void of enzymes.

Digestive Enzymes

Our body must build it own enzymes since it cannot utilize the ones found in raw foods or animal products. In order to produce, the organs systems require specific minerals as catalysts.

According to researchers, the body needed potassium as a catalyst, while sodium acted as an enzyme inhibitor. Enzymes are destroyed at temperature 60 degree C, so the cooked and processed food unable to furnish the body with needed enzymes. So, if you have digesting problem, poor appetite, constipation, diarrhea and painful gas. There is a very high possibility that your body does not have adequate enzyme activity. The best way in getting the require potassium is from fresh fruits and vegetables.  In addition to fresh juices, pancreatic enzymes is also an integral part of Gerson Protocol. Pancreatic enzymes able to attack and destroy tumor tissue while digesting foods because they recognised tumor cells as ‘foreign” needing to be eliminated.

The Hormone System

Hormones are like chemical messages that control our body’s growth, repair and reproduction. Endocrine glands make chemicals called hormones and pass them straight into the bloodstream. Hormones, especially thyroxin and adrenaline, regulate the entire metabolism.

The thyroid is an important part of the immune system, it regulates body temperature, including fever. The immune system responds by producing excess heat, fever if the organism is invaded by germs or viruses. Germs, viruses and even tumor tissue do not tolerate elevated temperatures, which the healthy cells can easily bear. So, how to maintain the well-functioning thyroid? The answer is iodine! Unfortunately iodine is short supply these days. In addition, Chlorine in the water supply is able to remove it from the thyroid. Fluoride from our toothpaste, a dangerous toxin, is even more powerful in blocking this important element.

Other enzyme inhibitors include food additives such as preservative, colouring agents, artificial flavors and many others so-called food cosmetics, plus pesticide and other agricultural poisons in our food supply. The Hormone System is under severe attack!

The Essential Organs

Every part of the organs e.g. liver, the pancreas, the lungs, the kidneys, the heart, the brain, the colon, the bone marrow, the spleen are all the essential organs. In the course of healing, Gerson Therapy pays particular attention to restoring  the liver to its functioning as quickly as possible as it plays a major part in healing the body. The liver is the only organ in the body that is able to regenerate and regrow if parts of its are removed.  Liver is the chief organ of detoxification. We often heard cancer like to attack liver, because of the liver is under attack then it lose the function of detoxification.

Dr. Gerson discovered that there was a difference between chronically ill patients and those suffering from cancer. ” The chronic disease patient has a weak, damaged liver; the cancer patient has a toxic liver”. He also found that the cancer patient could not completely digest and assimilate fats and oils. These undigested residues were picked up by the tumor tissue, which grew and thrived on them.

The Mineral Balance

In order for our body to function well and keeps it defenses strong, the body needs a large number of minerals which can be supplied by fresh organic juices made from produce grown in rich soil. Dr. Gerson recognised that two minerals, sodium and potassium were mainly involved in creating mineral imbalance in the body.

Our diet used to be loaded with potassium rich natural, fresh, organic vegetarian foods. Yet, these days, our diet is overloaded with sodium, which the body must excrete. Excess sodium is an enzyme inhibitor. In light of all of these, it is easy to see why mineral balance is an important component of the body’s defenses.

IF I didn’t have cancer I will not know so much about our body’s defense system and didn’t realise I allow the enemy like sodium, proceed food, preservatives, fluoride, chlorine to  attack my body! We are so misinformed with the food we eat.

So, if you think you are under attack! Take action now!

Love,
