How To Be An Empowered Patient
It's tough trying to defend your stance on a treatment protocol when your doctors are some of the most popular and highly ranked doctors in the world, or even if they're just your local MD. But you have to trust your gut and stand your ground. Don't give in to a treatment or procedure if it doesn't make sense to you and you don't feel comfortable doing it. Always get a second opinion, and a third or fourth if necessary. Your body is your own and no one else's, and you, not your doctor, have to deal with the consequences of your decisions. I've continued to struggle with this as minor bumps and pains have inevitably occurred on my health journey. My doctors have doubted the efficacy of my treatments along with my judgment, and I've questioned them myself. But the longer I've been in remission (nearly 4 years now), the more confidence I've gained in my holistic lifestyle, my alternative treatments and God's direction in my life. If you haven't already done so, please consider the fact that most doctors are afraid of what they don't know, and they usually don't know much about treatments like mine (Coley Fluid, high-dose vitamin C, Laetrile, and a modified Gerson Therapy). What they hear about treatments like mine are the rare horror stories of misuse, not the incredible success stories that go mostly unnoticed because people just can't believe it's true. I really did have 7 tumors and stage 4 melanoma; my "world's best" doctors really did think it was the end for me; I really did heal naturally in 6 weeks; and I've had to face a lot of challenges doing so. But I'm alive, I'm still cancer-free, and I plan to be around a while longer to help as many people as I can while enjoying this amazing gift of life. Thank you for reading, friends. God bless.
