I received this message from Chris as a comment on http://thegoodwitch.ca/a-powerful-cancer-fighting-herb-pau-darco/ this morning!! How powerful and amazing!!
“I had a 7 pound 3 ounce tumor on my liver. The doctor told me to go home and that I was going to die and that there was no hope! Another doctor took the tumor out but I still had to go for chemotherapy. I took 2 treatments and could not take another one. A friend of mine told me about the Pau D’arco tea. I used it, drank it every day and began to feel better. My strength came back and three months later I had to under go a CT scan. The doctor asked how the treatments were. I told him that I only took two and he said the cancer was probably back after the tests. He came back shaking his head. He said there was no sign of the cancer anywhere!!!!! It works I tell everyone to use it!!!!!” Chris (treasurehunter)
Pau D’Arco an herb that has properties which act against cancer, is from the inner bark of a South American tree, also known as Taheebo. It is listed in Dr. Duke’s Phytochemical and Botanical Database as having cancer fighting properties. It has been used for centuries there as an alternative treatment for cancer. Is Pau D’Arco a cure for cancer? For more information on Pau D’Arco tea go to: http://thegoodwitch.ca/a-powerful-cancer-fighting-herb-pau-darco/
I received a wonderful story about a woman who used Pau D’Arco tea on a large tumor on her elderly dog, with fantastic results. I’ll be sharing her story in our new, upcoming book, Herbs Used Against Cancer!!
For 22 years, since he was only 6 years old, Tony Graziano suffered with Asthma, Nose Polyps and respiratory congestion. Tony was on medications and puffers for years, until it got so bad that he could hardly breathe. He knew he had to do something different.
Tony was born into an Italian family and it was normal for him to eat bread, cheese and lots of meat. His father was a medical physician and his family followed the medical doctrine, ‘if something was wrong, go see the doctor’.
For years he struggled with symptoms of Asthma and respiratory congestion. He had three surgeries for (more…)

In recent months, Evangelina has been struggling with the re occurrence of her leg tumor. Evangelina has begun a fundraising project to help fund the surgery and care she requires for the liposarcoma tumor on her leg.
Please go to her campaign, see her story and give what you can, to help Evangelina be able to pay for the care she requires.
Thank YOU! http://www.gofundme.com/cuvndc
At first doctors thought the lump on Evangelina’s leg was just a lipoma, a fatty deposit. It had never posed a problem before and had been there for several years. It began to protrude from her leg and her daughter became concerned. After removal, tests showed the lump to be a liposarcoma, a rare cancer for someone as young as Evangelina.
She found the stress from dealing with doctors, tests and hospitals was wearing her down and was actually worse than dealing with the cancer itself. Conflicting opinions were testing her personal resolve. She stayed strong within herself and held her belief that (more…)
For 18 months Lori Lober tried to find an explanation as to why she intuitively felt something was wrong with her body. By the time she was diagnosed with Stage IV Metastatic Breast Cancer, her tests showed HER 2 positive (breast cancer ‘oncogene’), Liver metastases as well as tumors throughout her lymphatic system. At only 36 years of age, and one month before her younger brother passed away from cancer, Lori started conventional chemotherapy treatments for Stage IV metastatic breast cancer. Now twelve years later, after years of Herceptin treatments, multiple surgeries and a double mastectomy, Lori is ‘alive and thriving!’
When I first heard Lori’s story, I had to sit back and take in what she was telling me. Lori’s story shows that in the worst of situations and under the most dire of circumstances our spirit and the belief it holds (more…)
I had colon cancer (stage 3) and was diagnosed Dec. 2007 and had surgery on New Years Eve of 2007. I did have surgery and had about 10 inches taken off my colon. They recommended chemo. At that stage I did not know what to do except chemo. I think I had 7 or 8 treatments…But on the positive side I never got sick, never sick to my stomach, never lost my hair, never lost my desire to eat, but I must admit I felt terrible after the treatment. At that point I started to learn all I could to educate myself and boy I did. I do not want this stuff to make an appearance again. I purchased book after book, read, read and read some more and continue to apply as I see fit to do …We can learn an awful lot from other people.
What alternative therapies did you do and which ones helped you the most?
First off I started to research supplements and cancer. And almost the first one I focused on was Essential Fatty Acids. From Brian Peskin, The Hidden Story of Cancer and the recommended oils. I (more…)
Dr. Linda Berry, Doctor of Chiropractic, Clinical Nutritionist and Expert in Trauma Healing shares her powerful and personal story of overcoming extreme physical and emotional trauma.
As a young woman Dr. Linda had a promising career as a dancer, until a near fatal car accident left her paralyzed and in a wheelchair at only 24 years old.
In this interview she shares exactly how she overcame this devastating blow to her career and life, to walk again, and to share her expertise in trauma healing.
When Nuro Weidemann was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins Lymphoma in 2009, after finding a little lump in her breast, she was told it was aggressive, fast spreading, and in an unusual place. It was recommended that she have chemotherapy the following week, ‘right away’, most likely followed by radiotherapy. After watching her mother’s ‘dreadful ending’ from cancer of the uterus, Nuro had a powerful feeling to do something … anything else. When Nuro’s initial reaction was to back off their recommendations, doctors warned she would be dead within six months to two years if she refused their treatments.
She was in ‘total desperation and shock’, and contacted an old friend who was healed from cancer herself, once as a child on the Gerson Therapy, and once again forty years later. The friend sent an emergency list of the most important things for Nuro to do, which included, ‘stay away from all food that is acid forming and go on a very clean diet.’ With doctors pressuring her to go in for chemotherapy treatments the following week, Nuro could only remember her friend’s advice: ‘Go on a very clean diet.’
Nuro’s solution to her fear and panic was to do the complete opposite of what was being pushed at her. Most people find it very difficult to overcome their fear and trust themselves. Not Nuro: “I was ripped with fear and panic and having these doctors kind of in my ear and in my case wanting me to start chemotherapy next week, so I went on this very clean, mostly vegetable diet, with lots of fresh, green juices.”
There are a lot of updates and warnings on this post. Please read them all then watch Elaine’s very informative story below.
PLEASE SEE BELOW THIS POST FOR ALL UPDATES AND WARNINGS ABOUT USING KETOGENIC DIET WHEN YOU ARE SICK.
Here’s my take on the modified ketogenic diet for cancer:
It’s healthy, it’s healing, it’s all the foods we should be eating anyway. It lacks all the foods that don’t promote health or are common allergens like dairy, sugar and genetically modified grains. It’s low in sugar and carbohydrates. It’s chocked full of essential proteins, fats, minerals, vitamins and phytochemicals and if you add a large variety of raw organic plant foods like a satiating amount of raw fats and tons of leafy greens that promote your health and add herbs that help to kill cancer cells, doesn’t that sound like a good way to help your body reverse dis-ease? Diet rules!!
One dangerous issue with ketogenic diets for cancer is when people lose too much weight and start cachexia because they are not eating enough fat, they are not eating enough food and they are not eating often enough. You must eat a lot more food on the ketogenic diet, especially if you eat a lot of raw food, as there is more water in raw food and you feel full faster. Several of the people who share their story on this website have commented that they had to almost double the amount of food they were eating to stop losing weight. You also have to eat more of the right amount of fats (see below).
What does the ‘modified‘ keto mean?
It means you will learn a lot if you read Elaine Cantin’s book (link below) on how she used the modified ketogenic diet (without allergens like dairy!) which resulted in her breast cancer tumor going away twice, hopefully forever!!
A bit more about using raw fats helping to reduce weight loss during ketogenic diet:
The abstract below explains how adding mct or medium chain triglycerides (fats) reduced weight loss in tumour bearing mice.
Medium chain triglycerides are abundant in raw organic coconut fat.
Reduction of weight loss and tumour size in a ca… [Br J Cancer. 1987] – PubMed – NCBI http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/3620317
As always, love yourself and follow your body’s messages. If you are losing too much weight that is not a good thing. Please see your physician and supportive health practitioners for advice. You can’t do this alone. Make sure you choose practitioners who are knowledgeable and who support you in every way.
Here’s Elaine’s famous story:
Elaine Cantin was diagnosed with breast cancer and within one week was rushed into have a surgical lumpectomy. Doctors wanted to immediately begin ‘aggressive’ radiation and chemotherapy and this idea frightened Elaine, as she had seen many family members and friends die. Elaine said, “I thought that if I had to go, I would not be going that way.”
Shortly after her lumpectomy the tumor grew back to the size of a small egg. She began researching the Ketogenic diet and after modifying it to remove several allergenic foods, Elaine’s tumor shrunk to the size of a chick pea and then disappeared. Elaine has been told by her oncologist that she is in remission.
Elaine also has been testing the diet with her fifteen year old son who has been taking insulin for Type 1 Diabetes since he was three years old. As long as he is able to stay on the diet, his blood sugars level and he is able to stop taking insulin. Elaine is conducting further research to see if her modified ketogenic diet can actually reverse Type 1 Diabetes.
Elaine shares her encouraging and uplifting story of how she is healing with breast cancer in this short video interview (below) with Incredible Healing Journals.
UPDATE June 2014: “Here is a message directly from Elaine: “
“Recently there have been a couple of people getting on my keto diet and doing what was reported as “miraculously” well…feeling great too. However, since they were real sick to start with, they were also very skinny or they lost weight at the start of the keto diet if they did not eat enough since it acts as an appetite suppressant.
Their medical doctors advised them to get off my keto diet and load up on carbs and sugar to gain some weight. A couple of people died very quickly after following what they were told and I was told one person is now very weak. My keto diet is non calorie restricted and you can maintain or gain weight while on the keto diet if done properly. You want to feed the healthy cells and starve the cancer and prevent cachexia AND NOT the opposite that occurs when you feed the cancer with the sugar and carbs.
A reference from my book that explains this scientifically:
Reduction of weight loss and tumour size in a cachexia model by a high fat diet.”
UPDATE June 2013: Here is a message directly from Elaine: “For those who missed my previous post or if I was not clear enough, I am doing great. 🙂 I was diagnosed with advanced cancer via biopsy and ultrasound on 3/15/2013 and on 4/19/2013, my CT scan report showed that I only had a small nodule left that could no longer be confirmed with certainty as cancer. Thank God for my diet! Love & health to all of you. ♥” Elaine Cantin
UPDATE April 2013: Elaine is battling breast cancer for the second time. We’ll keep you updated as she progresses in healing.
Chris Wark was diagnosed with Stage 3 colon cancer in 2003, at only 26 years of age. He was much too young to be facing this devastating and potentially fatal dis-ease, thankfully Chris’s doctors had a plan of attack and so did Chris. He chose to have surgery to remove the tumor, then refused chemotherapy as a treatment. Chris wanted to have children and didn’t want anything to interfere with his future ability to have a family. Chris told his doctors, “No Chemo!”, then he went on to clear any remaining cancer from his body by strengthening his immune system with delicious, healing, raw plant foods and natural therapies.
Chris is still only 35 years old, and already he has done something that some of us never thought would be possible. Chris has put cancer behind him.
More and more people are choosing a ‘take charge’ approach to dealing with cancer. They are choosing, like Chris … with conviction and strength, to research their options thoroughly and to choose only those therapies which they feel are best for them.
Cheryl Ueding’s story gives such clarity to the realization that we really can overcome anything when we understand how much our emotional health is directly related to our physical health. Not just related though. When you find yourself holding onto deeply traumatic emotions, it remains difficult, if not impossible to heal your physical body. Our emotional body comes first … always and until we realize, acknowledge and accept that illness in our emotional ‘body’ manifests in our physical body; we remain powerless to heal ourselves.
Without giving away too much of Cheryl’s story, its important to point out that Cheryl has as much experience healing her emotional body, as anyone could ever imagine. In this interview, Cheryl shares her heart-wrenching, very personal and emotional healing story. Oh yes …
Kathleen has a powerful story to share about how important it is to use the messages from our dreams to direct us in the course of our lives.
Kathleen’s view of ‘surviving cancerland’ helps us to reclaim our power in healing because she really shows us that no matter what happens, when we believe in ourselves and our own ability to heal, we really can beat cancer.
The spiritual aspect of healing is one we have not explored very much at all, but Kathleen shows us that it is one part of healing that will correctly guide us to do what needs to be done, despite what others have planned for us.
On July 16, 2010, I went out on Lake Michigan with my cousin and his girlfriend in a 20 foot speedboat to watch the sunset. After the sun went down, we went for a short ride and then began our return ride home.
It was dark and my cousin did not see a sea wall. We ran into the wall at 25 mph. I was in the captains chair, next to him, and went flying. I hit the dashboard. It took 1 hour for the paramedics to find us. I was alert and in pain.
It wasn’t until 6 days later, when I “came to” in ICU that I found I had broken my C2, all my ribs and both lungs collapsed. I spent 2 more weeks in the hospital and then headed for home to Atlanta. I spent 12 weeks in a neck brace called a Minerva collar and 8 more months in rehab.
For the first thirty years of my life I was living in darkness. In infancy my mother died. My father was alcoholic. An abused and dysfunctional childhood, learning disabilities and ongoing seasonal sickness were compromising my future. As a young adult, alcohol, drugs, desperation and anger kept me in a permanent state of frustration, resentment and confusion. In 1967, at age 31, I turned about and decided to become a spiritual aspirant.
Gifted with ‘free_will’ we as humans have the ability to rise above our animal instincts and carnal desires. Not wanting to kill and eat any sentient beings, I became vegetarian: 100%. No meat, fish, eggs or poultry. It was a moral decision that had nothing to do with my health
Sadly, during the first ten years I was a chain-smoking; cooked-foods, baked-flaked, roasted-toasted, dried-fried, cakes-cookies, bread, chips, pasta, ice cream, cheese-pizza-tarian. At that time I was meditating two to four hours a day and my job involved distance driving. Due to the lack of exercise and my high calorie, mostly processed, comfort foods diet, I had very little reserve energy =_= I was approaching 40 and the spare tire around my belly was a silent alarm, screaming at me; Hey pAL !_! You need to give your precious body more time and attention “°_°” Those days vegetarian leadership was difficult to find, so I had to become my own health, fitness and postural recovery coach. Lethargy, ill health and my aching back were demanding that I become a decisive student of the obvious. (more…)

At 21, and fresh out of Engineering College in 1984, I wanted to go to the Gulf to work as a Civil Engineer and earn big money. In 1985, I joined a company in Baghdad and was assigned the job of handling a complicated power-curbing machine, which laid curbs on roads after they were completed. There was constant pressure to keep up the pace and meet deadlines. This caused a lot of stress to end up being bottled up, with no outlet. After completion of the project, I returned to India in 1986.
Upon my return, I suddenly fell ill with severe bouts of loose stools with blood and mucous about 15 times a day. I took medical leave at once and consulted a doctor. Even after a variety of antibiotics, my condition did not improve. It was then that I was referred to a gastroentrologist. On hearing my case, his diagnosis was quick and spot on. I had ulcerative colitis.
The treatment began with steroids and other medications. I had to start eating bland food. I was also hospitalised to correct my electrolyte balance and for a blood transfusion.
My condition gradually improved. The steroids were tapered off but the other medicines continued. We consulted another doctor who was also a friend. He said, “You will require medication for the rest of your life, just like a diabetic or blood pressure patient. You’ll get the same advice even in America.” It was disheartening to know that my problem would remain despite spending a large amount of money on medications.
Looking for a solution
I started research on the condition and the results were the same, ‘continuous medications, eat simple, and live a calm and unhurried life.’ Unfortunately, my job as a civil engineer would not relieve me from stress. (more…)
Some years ago, in Northern Virginia, I worked as a self-employed Bio-Energy Consultant, renting and sharing work space in various places, healing and teaching workshops wherever there was demand or opportunity.
One day, during opening week of a brand-new Health Food Store, I was visited by two young ladies. Actually, they were looking for the store owner who had, at that moment, stepped out for a while. We discussed the concept of the store, incorporating and offering several holistic healing approaches, whereby they became interested in my brochure and energy work–something foreign to them at that time. They agreed to sample my art but, suspiciously, insisted to be both in the room. We also agreed that they would not reveal to me, ahead of time, any particular health issues or emotional concerns.
So I began working on one of them, as the other one watched quietly. I soon became fascinated with my client’s legs, as she was stretched out on my massage table. I noticed a specific energy discrepancy in the area of both thighs. Several times, I asked her, “What happened to your legs?” Yet, every time, she denied any recollection of trauma involving her legs.
Diagnosed with deadly black melanoma cancer, given only 6 weeks to live, and facing amputation of her leg. Immediately Yvonne took control, refused to believe any dire predictions and is here to tell her story 30 years later. Yvonne still has both her legs and has been cancer free for over 30 years. Listen to Yvonne’s story here.
Janet Beckers shares a wonderful story of triumph over autoimmune disease in this audio interview.
Janet was diagnosed with Reiters, a form of reactive arthritis. She spent several years fighting this ‘mysterious’ disease and dealing with the debilitating symptoms like low energy, swollen joints, weeping eyes and congested lymph nodes. Janet made progress but the autoimmune symptoms still plagued her until she used emotional healing through a dream journal to take control of her health. What she found was that negative emotions, events and people were suppressing her ability to get well.
“I’ve learned over time that actually there are five main, key ingredients to healing and that they actually come in a chronological order of most important. The number one thing that is the most important for people to do to heal is to change their way of thinking because mental thinking is more important than anything, attitude is more important than anything. “
In 1999, Brenda was hit with the devastating news: She had not one, but two types of cancer, breast cancer and cervical cancer. Though her doctor told her she would be dead in six months if she didn’t use conventional treatments of chemotherapy, radiation and surgery and was recommending both a mastectomy and hysterectomy, Brenda refused all treatment and healed herself from breast cancer and cervical cancer herself using her all natural approach.
The Christmas of 2005 should have been a time of joyful expression for Heather, but the day before Christmas Eve she found a lump in her breast that turned into a devastating diagnosis of breast cancer in February.
Now six years after Heather’s initial diagnosis, and a powerful journey of education and experience through what she calls ‘cancering,’ Heather now takes a very natural approach to keeping herself cancer free, happy and healthy.
With a background as a Rehabilitation Wellness Consultant coupled with her experience in healing from breast cancer and extensive knowledge of how to achieve optimum health, Heather is well suited to helping You on Your path to wellness.
Over 20 years ago Kapil was diagnosed with non Hodgkins sub cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma. Doctors said he may live for five years but only if he took chemotherapy. Instead, Kapil removed his mercury amalgam fillings, he calls them ‘train tracks’. Then he did everything in his power to cleanse, heal and rebuild and now he is much healthier than he ever has been. Kapil reveals exactly what he did to heal from non Hodgkins Lymphoma in this short movie.

‘I want to help the world find the truth, one person at a time.’
Pattie McDonald, 2010
Where do I start?? As I look back I realized my cancer was a long, hard journey; but the end results: happy, healthy and alive. I did not only cure my cancer; I had irritable bowel, sinus infection, carpel tunnel and a few other ills.
I am not a physician; however, I believe my body was slowly shutting down in 2002. At one point, before I met Greg Caton, I layed on my couch and wanted to die I was so sick. Then, my grandmother called me from Illinois (she was 101 at that time). She told me to put all of my prescription drugs in the trash, change my diet and so on. Within a week of following her advice, I started to feel better; but I still had to deal with my breast cancer. My cancer surgeon had scheduled me for breast surgery on a Tuesday in June and I had to confront the fact that I was possibly going to lose my entire breast (cried a lot). My right breast had a lump the size of a quarter according the the ultrasound and the biopsy was inconclusive for cancer. Duh–they wanted to cut on me and had no concrete tests. Despite this emotional roller coaster my doctor had me on, I decided to trust her and go forward with the surgery–didn’t think I had any other choice. I am naively allowing doctors to take control of my health.

Diagnosed with Breast Cancer, Linda Devine Is NOW CANCER FREE After Curing Herself Naturally!
In 2008 Linda Devine was given the devastating diagnosis of breast cancer. Instead of giving up her power to someone else, Linda made the very wise decision to heal herself with holistic nutrition and natural therapies only. In only 10 months Linda cured herself and doctors could find no trace of the tumour. What follows is a transcript of an interview with Linda where she shares exactly what steps she took to cure breast cancer herself.
