My 6 Year Experience with the HCG Cancer Test

HCG TEST

If you are not quite sure of what the hCG Cancer Test is, you’ll definitely want to read my first post in this series where I explain WHAT the test is, HOW it works, and WHY I chose to monitor my cancer with it instead of using conventional imaging technology such as CT/PET scans. Although, I am definitely not an expert or a doctor, I do have lots of experience with taking this test!

The HCG Cancer Test: Does It Really Work?

There has been a sort of “void” in my transparency about my cancer experience for the past few years since I started writing Green Drink Diaries. I purposely left out a big part of my natural approach to cancer because I wasn’t ready to write about it yet.
I’ve written many times about WHAT I chose to monitor my cancer: the hCG Cancer Test, but I’ve never shared much else about it. You may know that I used the hCG Cancer Test and chose not to use CT/PET scans after my initial diagnosis, but I haven’t talked about my experience with the test, WHY I chose it, or HOW it works.

The Quest for the Cures, Episode 7:
Survivors & Thrivers

ttac_interview

Hey everyone!  Last night was the last episode of The Quest for the Cures.  Fittingly, it featured Survivors and Thrivers on what was National Cancer Survivor Day in America.

I hope you have been watching, as each episode has been chock-full of invaluable information.  Last night’s episode also included my cancer story along with quite a few others.  I was really amazed at the severity of some of the other interviewee’s cancers, and inspired at how they have recovered using simple but very effective non-toxic methods.

Treating Nodular Lymphocyte Predominant Hodgkin Lymphoma Naturally

I  was interviewed and filmed for this video over a year ago, but throughout the craziness of my 2nd daughter’s first year I completely forgot about it!

It’s pretty neat to look back and watch it. I was 34 weeks pregnant and had just finished a week of teaching 4th graders. I forgot how tired I was (and looked.)

In it I talk about my Stage 2 NLP Hodgkin’s lymphoma diagnosis, the reasoning behind my decision to pursue a natural cancer therapy, and about the difficulties of changing from a SAD, processed foods diet to a mostly raw vegan, green, and sugarless cancer fighting diet.

I really admire Lisa Robbins, the founder of Incredible Healing Journals who put this together. She documents holistic cancer survivors and their healing journeys on video, and organizes them by cancer type so you can find them easily on her website, IncredibleHealingJournals.com.

“The Quest for the Cures” Has Begun

It was so great to see the first episode of The Quest for the Cures last night and listen to some of the cancer experts and trusted researchers that encouraged me to heal from cancer naturally.

As it has been almost 6 years since my diagnosis, it is nice to polish up on the idea of “What Is Cancer” and to be reminded again from the experts themselves of why my husband and I chose to treat my body as a whole and not just “kill the cancer.” Here are some of my favorite quotes from last night’s episode. Don’t forget to tune in later today at 9pm EST for Day 2 which will break down and simplify how important it is to restore the immune system when healing from cancer. Day 1 will also be available to view all day today until Day 2′s episode begins tonight.

“Cancer isn’t caused by something, it’s caused by a lack of something.”-G. Edward Griffin
Author, Film Producer, Political Lecturer
“Healthy cells have a regulator that stops them from multiplying and growing. Cancer cells don’t have this mechanism. They keep growing and multiplying until they steal all of our energy and the nutrients that keep us alive.” (paraphrased) -Dr. Roby Mitchell
MD, Cancer Survivor
“Cancer is not native to humans. It’s a disease of modern man. It’s you! It’s your body kind of gone a little bit wrong. If you fix a few things, your body can be restored.” -Dr. Keith Scott Mumby
MD, MB, ChB, PhD
“Here’s a beauty - a healthy human body is self-regulating, and self-repairing.  Now the cancer patient has lost that ability for some reason. The job of everyone in the hospital and everyone in the clinic should be to restore that patient back to their self-regulating and self-repairing ability, which is what nutrition does as part of the package.” -Dr. Patrick Quillin
PhD, RD, CNS

Hey You Guuuuuyyys!

Hey You Guys!

Hi Everyone! (and hopefully you all got the Goonies reference- if not, you might be a bit skerred.)

So, the new website is coming along and I am so surprised to see that I have almost 200 posts that I’ve written since Green Drink Diaries got started three years ago. And although it isn’t as much as I would have like to have posted, it is encouraging to see how God has used the little I have written to help so many people.

But, I need a favor from you guys!

New Look for Green Drink Diaries. Yay!

GreenDrink Diaries - New Look!

I’ve been waiting (and gently hinting to my wonderful husband, Kevin) to update and improve the functionality of my blog for a while now. Who knew this would require a whole new WordPress theme and lots of work tweaking old blog posts, correcting old links to work with the new theme, and resizing pictures to not look super tiny, etc, etc?

Yay for this new change! Please be patient with us (mainly my awesome hubs) as we take a big step into the new world of non-FREE blog themes. :)

And look forward to NEW super helpful and inspiring posts in the near future!  ~As a matter of fact, I have an exciting announcement starting next week!

Stay tuned! :)
