“Nothing can stand against our God. Whatever you face in life, if you will just hold your peace and remain at rest, God promises He will fight your battles. He will make a way even when you don’t see a way.”– Joel Osteen
Last year was not my favorite year. In fact, it was very challenging. Without the Lord it would have been impossible. But with Him all things are possible.
I had always been extremely healthy, ate organic food, did not use toxic ingredients in household products, did not take any medications, had an optimistic attitude, and I was an athlete. But I started to feel very ill. I was collapsing in the morning when I tried to get up and I began drinking coffee several times a day to increase my energy level so I could work.
In 2012 unfortunately I was diagnosed with Stage IV Non Hodgkin Lymphoma. I was completely shocked.
When the oncologist recommended chemotherapy and said that this could be managed like a chronic disease, I asked him if a healthy immune system could fight it off. He laughed and said it was impossible. I was surprised. He seemed so sure that numbers on a lab report and what he read in a textbook meant the same thing for every single person on the planet. What the doctor was pronouncing was not my life. Words have power. It was with words that God spoke Creation into existence. I felt like someone was trying to speak into existence a life for me which was not mine. This is not what God wants for us. He wants us to be happy and healthy and free. Set free by the sacrifice of His son, Jesus Christ who died for our sins so that we would be set free from suffering and death. By His stripes I am healed. I put my complete trust in the Lord God, who is the ultimate healer. I stand on His Word.
I started to build up my immune system and detoxify my body immediately. I ordered as many books as I could find on lymphoma from the library to help me learn about the science of the disease how it is manifested within the system of the body on the macro and microbiological levels as well as traditional and alternative treatments and their effectiveness. The books gave me a quick basic understanding of lymphoma and approaches to treatment. However, in order to get the most up to date information and read traditional and alternative medical research studies from top universities I needed to use the internet. Alternative medicine isn’t just an alternative anymore, it’s modern medicine. Universities are researching the usage of plants and traditional herbs and medicines to treat cancer and other illnesses, and finding that they work. On the internet I read many testimonials from people who had been cured of cancer through natural means. Most of the people who had been healed and remained cancer free juiced and followed a vegan diet.
I started to search for someone who put it all together, who could tell me why I got cancer, even though I was previously healthy and how I could heal my body. I felt that if someone didn’t understand how I got the disease, they surely couldn’t help me completely get rid of it. Through the grace of God I found out about Dr. Young’s pH Miracle Program. Dr. Young’s program combines a nutritional approach of juicing, blending, and supplements to alkalize and nourish your body; sauna and other means to detoxify; and exercise to strengthen and encourage new healthy cells to grow.
I also relied on my faith like never before, and began to read the Healing Scriptures out loud so that my mouth proclaimed the glory of God’s healing power, thanking Him for his divine intervention. For music therapy I listened to Gregorian and other Christian chants and sound therapy cds from the library. I also used visual imagery. I exercised several times a week.
Although I was athletic, the tests and the bone marrow biopsy at the hospital initially left me so weak and ill that I could hardly walk around the football field of the local high school. I told myself I needed to walk around it five times, then ten times. I tried to run around the track, and every thud, thud, of my foot on the surface reverberated through my body with such pain that I had to grit my teeth. I could force myself to run a quarter of the way around.
When I started Dr. Young’s Juice Feast I began feeling much better within two weeks. I met Dr. Young at a seminar he was holding, and asked him many questions about the pH Miracle Program. I consulted with him every month throughout my recovery. I am so grateful to him. He truly is an amazing person, in addition to being brilliant at what he does.
My diet consisted of juiced and blended vegetables for five months, with two plates a day of avocados, tomatoes, and cucumbers, Dr. Young’s supplements, and additional vitamins and herbal supplements. After five months I started to use a vegan protein powder and added additional alkaline solid food to my diet, although I continued to juice and blend every day for seven more months.
I read many research papers and information about vitamins, herbs, and anything that would bring my body back to health. I did not want to have any more CT scans, so I researched alternative ways of determining my progress. I decided to monitor it through regular CBC and cancer marker blood tests at my family doctor’s office and I took other blood tests regularly to make sure that everything was ok. My protein and calcium levels were always within normal range. When I went back to an oncologist a year later the lymphoma tumor was gone. Three months later the WBC was normal. My current oncologists are top doctors in the world and they support the approach I’ve taken because it’s worked. One said he has never seen anything like it.
I am currently juicing or blending every day and eating as normally as anyone else would, except I eat food that is alkaline. I look healthy, and I am healthy. In fact I’m getting healthier every day. Thank you Dr. Young – S.M.
