First, a little about my way of thinking and why I decided to fight my cancer using natural methods despite having "health" insurance.
About twenty years ago my best friend (a one year old mixed breed) "Rascal" began having seizures while I worked in the back yard. I immediately rushed him to the closest vet where he was diagnosed with canine epilepsy. The vet prescribed drugs to slow him down but, he was such a great dog full of youthful energy I sought other ideas. At the time the internet was only a collection of forums and that's where I began my search. The immediate reaction that caught my eye was to change his diet (by then he was having three grand mal seizures a day that I personally saw). I was taken aback as I thought I was feeding him the "good stuff" sold on every pet store shelf (dry, unnamed but ask me). I was to learn the additives in that product was anything but good for him. Basically there were two schools of thought regarding his diet change. One was to feed him raw meat and the other something more natural in dry. I began weaning him from his regular diet he used the previous year to something better and he began having less seizures with each change. It took a total of about three months but he finally stopped having any with the completely natural product he ate for the rest of his life (14 great, seizure free years).
Now, I know you're wondering how any of that story pertains my need for your support. What I learned from Rascal brough me a new understanding of "The System". That vet wasn't taught or he ignored how a particular diet can have a negative affect on ones health. All he knew was to push a drug and all those drugs do is mask symptoms. From that time I suspected the healthcare system in the USA isn't about curing anything but rather it's a ready portal for increased income.
Ahead, August 23rd, 2014
I lived a relatively healthy lifestyle eating lightly with no red meat and organic as much as I could afford. I refused to take any drugs, prescribed or otherwise and avoided the Dr's office unless I was actually broken. I felt I was in pretty good shape until I started having extreme pain in my neck. I thought I had somehow pulled a muscle or something and tried to carry on until the pain became unbearable and my neck swelled up like a grapefruit. Finally going to hospital, I was diagnosed with stage four squamous cell carcinoma cancer of the tonsil and already spread to the lymph nodes. This, for me, came as a great shock. I was doing everything right but here I am, sick with a most dreaded disease. In hospital, Dr's frightened my family and me with surgery, chemo and radiation which offered possibly five years added to my life amid great suffering and physical trauma. Even under heavy sedation I knew that wasn't the way I wanted to end my days. What kind of father would I be to my children with half my face and jaw removed?
And so began my new internet search. This time for my own survival. There are alternatives to the standard cancer treatments once we see beyond "The System". Starting with diet and supplements I dove into my new world determined to cure myself. All the books I've read and people in alternative cancer treatment point to one thing about my cancer that MUST be done for me to be a winner in this fight. All dental root canals need to be removed by a special holistic dentist. They are rare and hard to find but lucky for me, one of the best is less than a mile from my home. The cost of removing six root canal teeth, rebuilding my mouth to use what's left along with fighting the disease without the benefit of health insurance comes at great expense and I need your help.
