3/27/2021 - Acne curing
As you know from reading this website, soon after I was diagnosed with cancer in Feb. 2019, I discovered the truth and power of nutrition, and made a radical change to a plant-food, unprocessed diet. Since then, over time, as I continue to investigate and learn, my regimen evolves. I'd long since quit processed oils, but the latest evolution was quitting the "good" oils like olive oil or avocado oil. I immediately noticed some improvement in my acne. So after further research on the subject, I tried an experiment of cutting even fat/oil-rich whole foods that I was eating a lot of, like avocados, nuts/seeds, olives, and coconut milk, to see if it would improve even more.
Within THREE DAYS, my acne had noticeably receded, and was about 95% gone by day EIGHT. That was UNPRECEDENTED in my experience, it was like a miracle. The experiment is an undeniable success. Time will tell if this progress holds, I'm still early in the game as I write this. Yes, the anecdotal advice to quit, say, chocolate or milk, is actually on the right track because of their fat content, and for some people that works. But apparently the only solution for a stubborn case is to cut fat/oil DRASTICALLY.
I've been dealing with acne continuously since I was a kid, at least FORTY YEARS now. Back in the day, I'd been through the poisons of antibiotics and Accutane, that only work temporarily. I had tried every other type of dietary changes (even my initial radical diet change wasn't enough). The only relief I could ever get was by using topical creams like Clearasil, but it required religious daily use to get good enough results, and such consistency was hard to sustain. But on this latest diet regimen, it is resolving, with no effort. And as far as I'm concerned, all disease is systemic, so anything that improves health in any way helps helps broadly, including as to cancer.
All this time, FORTY YEARS, it was that simple. Yet no traditional "doctor" knows this. Meanwhile, this is old news in certain naturopathic circles (thank you Dr. John McDougall). FORTY YEARS. Tried everything. Then remarkable progress in only about ONE WEEK. The irony is shocking. There ya go.
I added ozone infusions and mistletoe injections to my cancer therapy regimen. These are provided by my naturopathic doctor.
Over time, I'm constantly adjusting my non-medical therapy regimen as I research and experiment with new things. I get monthly blood tests to monitor certain key cancer markers, and the numbers have been trending downward over the past 6 months, after having had no discernable pattern for the previous 3 years. Well, continuing that recent trend of improvement, in my recent blood test I just got an ALL-TIME LOW number, which I'm cautiously classifying as a MAJOR milestone. The occurrence of this new low number correlates with the mistletoe therapy I recently added, which seems to suggest it is working as I hoped it would. From the moment I implemented my non-medical regimen 3-1/2 years ago, the trajectory of my results has always been towards improvement; the progress has been slow, and sprinkled with periods of no discernible change, but there have been NO setbacks, the net results have ALWAYS been in the direction of improvement, and the overall improvement has been significant and unprecedented. As far as I'm concerned, the standard clinical classification is no longer relevant in my case; I have personally, confidently long since reclassified my case as no longer "terminal."
Feb. 14, 2023 was the 4th anniversary of my cancer diagnosis. I've turned that anniversary into a milestone, I've ENDED the cancer diagnosis as of that day. Here's how I came to that conclusion.
The disease I was diagnosed with is malignant Zollinger-Ellison syndrome (ZES). At the time of the diagnosis, the PET scan showed I had 1 large primary tumor, and 35 small metastases/tumors (all 36 were neuroendocrine tumors, "gastrinomas"). Other than surgery, which is not applicable in my case, there is no medical method that can cure or diminish this disease. What they call "treatment" is a misnomer, it's a drug that is just palliative, relieving symptoms only. Late in the game they may throw chemotherapy at it, knowing it's futile. With or without "treatment," the clinical profile is that the tumors always grow and multiply, slowly but relentlessly, until at some point they turn aggressive and prevail over the patient. My original prognosis was "5-10 years." So the normal expectation would be that today, at this 4-year mark, my disease would be more advanced than it was then.
But the opposite has occurred. I have considerably LESS disease at the 4-year mark. Over the past 4 years (having declined conventional treatment), through prayer and non-medical, "alternative" methods (radical nutrition), the trajectory of my disease has been permanently reversed, resulting in significant diminishment. I'm not in a hurry to absorb another high dose of radiation from another PET scan to get a current picture, so based on extrapolating from a series of prior PET scans showing steady, dramatic diminishment of the original 35 small tumors, and the consistent absence of pain that a few of them originally caused, I have concluded that by now their trajectory has long since brought them to ZERO, they are all GONE. The remaining primary tumor shrunk about 15% in diameter in the first year, but since then has remained stable in size. Blood tests have shown a pattern of diminishing tumor functionality.
Here's the point. ZES can occur as either of two types: benign or malignant. The benign classification applies to cases where there are no metastases, in other words, in which it has not spread beyond the 1 primary tumor. The cancerous classification applies to cases in which the tumor has spread (or otherwise behaves in an aggressive, fast-growing manner); it's the metastases that are the real hazard. My original condition was classified as cancerous because of the presence of the 35 metastases/small tumors, which were in the liver, lymph nodes, and bones. However, my present unprecedentedly improved condition, of having only 1 primary tumor remaining, unprecedentedly not growing, and without any metastases remaining, is consistent with the benign variety of ZES. In other words, although I still have a gastrinoma tumor, and it still produces its typical diabolical biochemical symptoms (which I take OTC drugs to alleviate), it fits the clinical definition of a "benign" gastrinoma, not "cancer." If I walked into the doctor's office for the first time at this point, in this condition, the diagnosis I'd get is "benign gastrinoma," not cancer. So a reclassification is in order. This reclassification has not been made by my doctor (I inquired, no luck, not surprisingly), since in the rigid box of orthodox oncology, ZES, especially the malignant variety, has never been known to regress, and my "alternative" methodology and corresponding undeniably successful results have, bizarrely, still not dislodged my doctor from that rigid box. My doctor is incorrect on this point, being stuck in the narrow paradigm of orthodox oncology, preferring to remain in the comfort of conventionality over the scary prospect of independent analysis, despite the avalanche of evidence of my real healing. So my doctor is not the final authority on the matter, the actual reality is, and that reality is what it is: the trajectory of the disease has indeed reversed, out of the cancer classification. So based on meeting the criteria of benign ZES, I'm stating the reclassification accordingly, appropriately as of the 4-year anniversary:
I DO NOT HAVE CANCER. Cancer was my former condition, it's not my present condition. Instead I have a benign gastrinoma. The death sentence has been nullified. Accordingly, I've adjusted my prognosis: I'm going to die of old age.
I can now say I'm a "cancer survivor," or have "beaten cancer." But I did something more important than what those descriptions imply, what I did was remove the factors that promote disease, and add the factors that promote healing, and as a result, I only got better and better all the time. The word for that is "CURE." I have had zero setbacks along this journey. The side effects have all been abundant benefits, no pain or injury. The changes have always been in the direction of healing, never getting worse. It's not "remission," which is actually an artificial, drug-induced, temporary suppression of tumors, subject to recurrence since the root cause remains. By contrast, my improvement is solid because it is real healing.
THERE YA GO. What a ride. God is very good. I appreciate your prayers through this journey and moving forward. My continuing goal is to eradicate the residual benign gastrinoma tumor entirely.
