My Name is Carole Smith and this is my husband Trevor Smith. He was diagnosed with bladder cancer in July 2012. After confirming for the second time in January 2014 that Trevor was still cancer free we want to share our story to let everyone know that we are living proof there is another way in treating Cancer and many other diseases.......
My husband Trevor was told by two top Urologists that he had stage T2A bladder cancer and that to survive, he would need to have Chemo, radiation and radical surgery to not only remove his bladder and prostate, but to remove his intestines and have a neo bladder built from them so that he can pass urine. He was just 52 at the time. We were living and working in the middle East at the time so we traveled back to the UK in the hope there was a terrible mistake, the outcome was the same, which again gave us the same prognosis. What the Dr's forgot to tell us was that if he took this operation, the chances of him living longer than 24 to 30 months were very slim and also they refrained from telling us he would be incontinent for up to a year, possibly lot's of infections and also become impotent at age 52.
I was already doing so much research when I saw the movie, “Run from the cure” but it was mainly about nutrition and giving the body what it needs to heal itself, I tried to get hold of some cannabis oil but was having too many difficulties and as we lived in a place where it was too dangerous to make it ourselves, all I knew was that everything I could do to save my husbands life, I was going to do.
Fear is a terrible thing and fear is ripe when we hear the word Cancer. The saying, “Frightened to death” is really what happens to the body once you believe there is only one way to treat this terrible disease.
I hope that sharing our story might give you, at least some hope that there is another way. Our belief system does not have to be locked we can open up our minds to think for ourselves, inform ourselves and learn not to just accept our “fate”
We spoke again to the Urologist and told him we needed more time to research alternative treatments and modalities, and we would not take the Chemo or surgery just yet, we were already looking into different therapies, both of us are concerned with the quality of his life after surgery and both of us need time to digest all of this dreadful news, the Oncologist and the Surgeon try to impress on us that we need to think very carefully about the surgery, the Surgeon had already got a date in his diary to proceed with removing his bladder, we felt like we were being railroaded into the surgery far too fast and we needed to slow it down a little so we could have time to digest everything. Something was screaming at me to take some time before making this radical decision.
I began first researching this natural cancer cure in the form of Essiac, given its name by Rene Caisse (“Caisse” spelt backwards); this herbal cure consists of four main herbs that grow in the wilderness of Ontario, Canada. The original formula is believed to have its roots from the native Canadian Ojibwa Indians. The four main herbs that make up Essiac are Burdock Root, Slippery Elm Inner Bark, Sheep Sorrel and Indian Rhubarb Root.
If you want to know more about Rene Caisse’s Immune System Theory in her own words. You can Google “Rene Caisse story’’.
My husband started on this medicine within a week of him being diagnosed, Then we made an appointment with a naturopathic Dr and we asked for her help in co Doctoring my husband each step of the way as we try the alternative approach. Dr did all of his blood tests to find out what he was lacking to make his immune system be so depleted and we found out he was almost completely depleted of vitamin D even though he lived in a hot and sunny climate. We put together a plan of action to continue to work with the conventional tests MRI and scans and also many vitamins and supplements and complete diet and lifestyle change.
The conventional Dr’s gave my husband 18 months to 2 years to live if we did not do the surgery and the chemo. We did none of them, only natural healing with vitamins diet and lifestyle change and cannabis oil. I first saw "Run From the Cure" in November 2011 but it took me until April of 2012 to find the oil. It has been hard work for me as a carer and wife and I never stopped my research for 1 day in the last 19 months but today I can say 19 months after my husband’s first diagnosis he is cancer free and still has his bladder in tact. He has been cancer free now for the last two cystoscopies, so five months Cancer free in February 2014 he has no metastasis to other organs. We have every one of his medical records, every laser surgery to remove tumors has been recorded on Cd’s nd (we even have the biopsy slides with pieces of the tumors that were graded as being aggressive and muscle invasive. We had to travel with them from two Countries, (this is how we got them released to us) We still have to have regular check ups every three months but to think 19 months ago he was told he had 18 months to live if he did not remove his bladder, prostate and some lymph nodes, When the Dr's realized we were going to try alternative medicine, they stressed upon us that if he did not do chemo within the next 6 weeks then my husbands death would be slow and very painful.
I am so happy today to say as a side effect of all we did, all natural, his cholesterol went back to normal as did his blood pressure, he looks ten to 15 years younger and feels so much better than he ever did, he never had one day sick or even looking sick in the whole journey with Cancer and out the other end and it is shocking that we are led to believe that there is no cure for Cancer, our story is living proof there is another way and I am now consumed with only getting the word out that Cancer does not need to mean death. We just lost 19 months of our lives to this disease and yet it has turned out to be the most important time of our life too.
I found what I was put on the earth to do and that is to be part of something, as the world wakes up to there actually being another way and it is just through natural healing and giving our body just what it needs to repair itself!! Taking Control of your own body means you too can heal yourself, first and foremost with proper diet and nutrition and vitamin therapy, a complete lifestyle change and Natural God given plant extracts and Cannabis oil, I wrote a book about all we did and will share it as soon as it is published.
My husband completely changed the way he eats, he has no dairy or sugar, no white flour or white potatoes, he has mainly a plant based diet with a little fish or chicken and no processed food, pastries meats cheeses etc, he had Essiac, he had mega doses of vitamin C and D3, vitamin B17, K2, detox powder's initially, then he had DHEA to build his immune system back so that his body could heal itself, then a year after doing all of this, we found cannabis oil and added that to all we had done, he did 90 days on the cannabis oil and then maintenance dose of rice grain size two or 3 times weekly. It has been hard for 18 months but it is a success story which we will continue to tell the world about.
