One Patient's journey with cancer
My narrative begins in the late Fall of 2010.
I went to my family MD after returning from a business trip to Germany. I felt like I had the worst case of the flu ever: No energy, shortness of breath, exhausted. A quick blood test found I had very low hemoglobin and needed 3 units to bring me up to speed. Bleeding was found on the outside of the small intestine, but no one seemed to be in charge nor able to make logical recommendations. A good friend (trauma surgeon) suggested an immediate trip to Mayo. They were able to pinpoint the leak and suggested immediate surgery. The diagnosis was stage IV adenocarcinoma of the small intestine. I healed quickly and refused any follow up treatment as the numbers simply did not support the recommendations of the MD. I was using their (Mayo) data and realized after unencrypting all the juggling of collected data, I could expect an increase in life expectancy of 2-4 weeks. It did not make sense to me.
With the aid of my wife, I changed my diet, (primarily Gerson), did heat treatments, vitamin C treatments, daily juices and lots of digestive enzymes. I was well, strong and held my weight for 2 years .
Mayo closely checked my progress until late 2012 and it again had metastasized this time to the large intestine, liver, pancreas, spleen and again the small intestine. I did lots of studying and tried to only get peer reviewed articles. In Europe, cancers like this, are treated with HIPEC (hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy) surgery. Mayo said it was too experimental and too dangerous (cancer 100% mortality rate vs. HIPEC 15% mortality rate?). I knew I was in the wrong place and ran away.
Enter Helen Healy, ND. She did a quick interview, made some diet and supplement suggestions and suggested Cancer Treatment Centers of America for a second opinion and options. She was not the least pessimistic. We went to CTCA and they immediately suggested the HIPEC after reviewing my tests and history. They were concerned with the pathology of my first surgical frozen sections.
Surgery was done in January of 2013. Recovery was spotty from infections, but complete. I was fitted with a temporary ostomy and sent back to Minnesota with a new diagnosis of Stage IV pancreatic cancer. The concerns about the pathology were because the initial cancer in the small intestine was actually a metastasis from the pancreas. My wife and I read copious journals and articles. Pancreatic cancer usually leaves the patient at room temperature in 90-120 days.
We met with a very calm Helen Healy, who gave me a personal regimen of supplements and diet for pancreatic cancer. The primary products were Turkey Tail mushroom and modified citrus pectin. I have now been on her regimen for 4 years and have never had a sick day nor a bad check up from my local oncologist. HELEN HEALY DOES NOT TREAT CANCER. Helen Healy treats patients who have cancer and tries to get their bodies into a healing mode. I cannot testify that this will work for all, but it has worked for me. I am now 70 years old, enjoying life and playing with my grandchildren.
Thank you Helen, --J. Mike Glasgow
P.S. After my surgeries, I had to take Opium tincture daily because of diarrhea due to my shortened colon. It worked very well when nothing else did, but cost over $500 per 8 oz bottle, all out of pocket. She mixed together an anti- diarrhea botanical tincture, without opium for a fraction of the cost and it WORKS. She is not a miracle worker, but listens to her patients and researches until she is sure the patient will benefit and does no harm. God bless you, Helen and Thank you.
