It’s All Greek To Me

When I originally met with Dr. Kind, the first thing on his to do list, before developing any formal treatment plan for me, was a blood test. But not just any blood test!

The blood sample itself was taken here. Obviously! But the analysis of my blood is actually performed by a laboratory in Greece. I have always wanted to go to Greece. Now, part of me has!

There are several components to the analysis. Once complete, a very thorough report was then sent to Dr. Kind and he subsequently provided a copy to me.

Firstly, the Research Genetic Cancer Centre in Greece does a complete DNA analysis of my blood. Through this analysis one can see what functions in my body are too active and which ones are too sluggish, in both cases making me more susceptible to cancer. With this information Dr. Kind can then subscribe various treatments and supplements to balance out those overactive and underactive functions in my body.

The second step is  that the lab actually counts the number of cancer cells in the blood. Handy for follow up testing. You can easily see whether the protocol you are on is effective or whether it requires some tweaking.

The testing doesn’t stop there! The cancer in my blood is tested against every chemotherapy drug available as well as being tested for its receptivity to radiation, should I choose the conventional route.

In Canada, when it comes to cancer, we are not treated as individuals. It’s a one size fits all cancer protocol. For instance, being diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer, like many women, I was prescribed with a combination of three chemotherapy drugs, radiation, and a side of Tamoxifan.

Interestingly, the lab’s report indicated that two of the three chemotherapy drugs that I had been prescribed had minimal or no impact on my particular cancer. None! Thank GOD I finally trusted all the nudges I was receiving and stopped my chemotherapy treatment. It would have meant six months of poisoning myself, six months of suffering, six months of risking death; for what? For nothing, that’s what.

The final component of the lab’s report is their results from testing all the more common natural treatments against the cancer in my blood. How cool is that?! The lab’s report basically laid out a blueprint for treatment, without the costly hit and miss.

I won’t kid you. This blood test is very, very expensive. Like several thousands of dollars expensive. But the results? The information you have to work with? Priceless.

From my understanding, the laboratory in Greece is the only one of its kind in the world. And that is a real shame. With all the fundraising for cancer research over the years, one can’t help but ask,

” Why isn’t there a laboratory in Canada that can provide this same service? Why isn’t every person being treated as the unique individual that they are? ”

The Inconvenient Messenger

I was diagnosed with stage three breast cancer in 2014. I turned away from conventional medical treatment and chose instead to treat myself successfully with natural, holistic, traditional medicine.

I believe that,
we can let cancer fill us with fear,
we can fight against cancer with all that we have,
or we can embrace cancer for
the inconvenient messenger that it is.
The choice is ours.

I invite you to join me on my cancer journey as I share my experiences and the powerful messages I have received along the way about life and living.
