Overcoming Dis-Ease: A Journey of Faith

Overcoming Dis-Ease: A Journey of Faith

Overcoming Dis-Ease: A Journey of Faith

I was numb!  I couldn’t think!  I didn’t know what to say or what to ask.  It was the most alone moment of my life. Cancer!  Me?  Not me.  We don’t have cancer in my family.  We have heart attacks and strokes! But then she didn’t say we.  She said “You” meaning ME.

And it began… Mammogram to mammogram to biopsy to ultrasound-guided biopsy to surgery – both breasts.  From diagnosis to surgery, it was so quick I didn’t have time to think about what I was doing or even feel my emotions. I just did it.

At the follow-up appointment with the surgeon the week after the surgery, she explained I would need another surgery for the removal of a sentinel lymph node to see if there was any cancer in my blood – then a round of radiation treatments and chemotherapy.  I scheduled the surgery for next month.

During that month, I started my research, visiting clinic after clinic, spas, and raw food facilities throughout the Southwest, Texas, and Georgia. I checked out clinics in Mexico, Africa, and Europe. My oncologist told me that if I didn’t do the radiation and chemo, I should go home and get my affairs in order, as I’d probably only live a few more months. There was cancer in my blood.  One naturopath told me to do the radiation and chemo, and then he would help me regain my health. They all seemed so sure of themselves, but the voice in my head kept screaming NO! The more they insisted, the louder the voice became.

I read books and watched movies and documentaries about cancer, treatment, nutrition, diet, and natural healing.  I watched Louise Hay’s movie You Can Heal Your Life so many times that I could quote it almost word-for-word. The information resonated with my heart.

A friend of mine told me to check out the Cedar Natural Health Center in Cedar City, Utah, and when I went there and met Dr. Holcomb, he said, “Come in. Let’s see if we can get you well.” All the other doctors had said, “Let’s talk about treatment.”  So, of course, getting well sounded like the best option.  I decided to go to him for treatment even though it meant I would have to drive to Cedar City from Las Vegas 3 hours, 3 times a week, sit with a vitamin, mineral, and trace element drip in my arm for three hours, and then drive 3 hours home.  It would mean I could unschedule that subsequent surgery.

Since the beginning, I have been asking God daily to guide me in making the right decision.  I still had family to support, and I couldn’t afford to be sick.  On the way home from the first visit with Dr. Holcomb, I stopped at a restroom, and while there, I again asked God to help me make my decision.  While praying, I looked up and saw a beautiful poster that said, “The Power that made the body heals the body; there is no other way.”  An incredible peace came over me.  I had my answer.

Once I made my choice, I could regain control of my life and take responsibility for building my immune system. That was the most critical decision I had ever made or would ever make.  I knew I had to be committed.

Dr. Holcomb explained that “illness has a cause. We can remedy the illness if we find and correct the cause”.  I believe removing the tumors and doing everything possible to nurture my immune system allowed my body to heal itself.  To me, it seems a much better alternative than a program of toxic, invasive, and experimental cancer treatments.

Dr. Holcomb made it clear to me that I had to commit to getting well and taking responsibility for the state of my emotions, my physical self, and my spiritual well-being.  He said, “Your doctor can explain treatment options, recommend what he believes is best, and treat you once you have decided, but you are the only one who should decide what treatment is right for you.  And let me remind you that you are the one who will live with the consequences of the decision.”

I had to change my lifestyle.  No more working 18 to 20 hours per day. No more junk food.  I had to eat food that nourished my body, and the ones he recommended were not what I had learned about on that food pyramid chart in school. I had to learn about vitamins and minerals.  Exercise and take a nap in the afternoons.  I was sent for colonics, massage, dry brushing, dance lessons, and art lessons.  I understood everything except the art lessons.  His explanation, “I want you to learn to sit still and be quiet for 3 hours at a time.  It will be like meditation.”   I did everything I was told.

Seven and a half months later, my oncologist asked me what I had been doing as my body was cancer-free. I told him about Dr. Holcomb, and he agreed I had made the right decision for me.

I do not fully understand why this happened to me, but I know for the absolute positive that God guided me through it.  We make choices every moment of every day.  When we choose to trust God, take part in creating our destiny, show gratitude for our progress, and stay focused forward, we will see miracles at every turn.  Then and only then do we move toward a future filled with unlimited possibilities.  Faith is the confident assurance that something we believe is true or something we desire will happen. 

Affirm each day, “I believe God has a purpose for my life, and I intend to live a long, healthy, happy life to fulfill that purpose.”  Then, take the action required to make that happen.  Keep your thoughts positive, make better choices, and remember, “The Power that made the body heals the body.  There is no other way.”
