Our Approach to Fighting Cancer
We get a lot of inquiries from around the world since we created this website for one of our family members in 2004. We decided to summarize what we learned from our research, the methods we used to beat ATC cancer, and the changes that we have made in our lifestyles. The information posted on this website is what we used to beat cancer. It is important to read all the information so you can make informed decisions. Please keep in mind that we are not doctors or healthcare experts. We are ordinary people just like you. Before you read our step-by-step approach, please note that the information posted here is based on our personal opinion, experience and views. We should also point out that we have not, and do not gain monetarily from any products, services, or treatments posted on this Web site. The information posted here is only to share our experience with general public with the hope that people can benefit from our experience.
There is no magic pill or potion that you can take to get rid of cancer. We realize that the initial discovery is a shock to the people who are diagnosed with cancer as well as others around them. However, no one can fight cancer for you as well as you can. You must have the desire to live and fight cancer. When the doctors tell you that you may have less than 10% chance to survive cancer then you should have the believe and desire to be among the 10% who survive because doctors are human and they can be wrong. In our case, we realized that there is not enough data for the doctors to make claims that one has less than 10% chance to live once diagnosed with ATC cancer. Someone posted that claim on a Web site and everyone copied that information verbatim on other Web sites. As a result, people (including doctors) took that claim as a gospel truth. The moral of the story: don’t believe everything you read on the web. Do your own research and come to your own conclusions.
Most of the content on this website was researched in 2004, although there are some sections that we have updated (such as this page, information on products to raise pH, pH testers, etc.). One of the big challenges that we faced during our research was how to separate the facts from fiction. You may feel that there are a lot of websites that try and sell you all kinds of stuff and take advantage of cancer patients because they know they are desperate and will try anything. With a cancer like ATC, we didn’t have time to experiment with every lotion and potion until we found the cure. In addition, because we are not doctors, we wanted to make sure that everything we did was known to and approved by our doctors. Internet is an ocean of knowledge base. We decided to tap into that resource, sift through the pieces, and then extract the pertinent information to find a cure for cancer.
Our approach was to fight cancer by using methods that were safe and natural. The items that we used to raise our pH levels were all natural (e.g. fruits and vegetables). The Ploy-MVA supplement was approved by our doctor as a safe product. Even the supplement for nausea from the radiation treatment was a natural supplement (Apazin). We were confident that the methods we used will definitely be approved by our doctors, and they were. We also decided to attack cancer on all fronts: diet, supplements, exercise, radiation, massage therapy, acupuncture, yoga, etc. What you will notice in our approach is that nothing in our treatment was controversial or risky and everything was safe, natural and approved by all the doctors and healthcare experts that were involved.
Here’s how we would summarize what we feel is the best way to beat any cancer, especially ATC.
- Positive attitude
We believe that having a positive attitude and the desire to live is a key to fighting cancer. As Sharee said in her blog on April 16, 2004 “I don’t believe many people understand that you have tremendous power over your body. Your mind is the most powerful muscle you possess – and yet we fill it with self doubt and negativity. As a NOW cancer survivor please take it from me – ANYTHING you put your mind to you can accomplish. I don’t mean you can accomplish alone and there is a big difference.”
- Support from family and friends
Although having a positive attitude is important, it is very difficult to beat cancer without the support of people around you (friends, family, or anyone else close to you). The support from people close to you makes a huge difference in fighting cancer.
- Alkalize your body by raising your pH level between 7.5 – 8.5
Based on our research we discovered that if your pH is between 6.0 and 6.5, you are becoming acidic and therefore developing one or more of 150 degenerative diseases. A healthy person’s pH should be between 7.2 and 7.5. At a pH slightly above 7.4 cancer cells become dormant and at pH 8.5 cancer cells will die while healthy cells will live. Our findings were based on Dr. Otto Warburg’s hypothesis. He received the Nobel prize in 1931 for his discovery. You can read the details on the page Cancer & pH. For us, this was the foundation for our plan to fight cancer. As Sharee points out in her blog on April 15, 2004 “I have been resting all week, and trying like a mad woman to get my pH above 8.6. You’ll be happy to know as of this morning that my pH is at a steady 8.7. Sorry little cancer cells, party’s over.”Our research showed that the number one cause of cancer was related to diet and alcohol (tobacco was #2). Alcohol is extremely acidic. Eliminating alcohol completely from your diet is essential. Read everything on this website that relates to pH balance, especially all the pages under Diet & Recipes heading. This information is key to good health for everyone, not just cancer patients. We used this Food Chart, and continue to use it today, as a guideline for balancing our pH level. Back in 2004 we used an older model of the pH meter (IQ120) to test our pH level using the saliva test. That pH meter is no longer manufactured. It has been replaced with IQ130 pH meter, which we are currently using.
During our research we discovered Poly-MVA. We read everything we could find on this product. The product is relatively expensive, but we found it was well worth the money we spent. We wanted to make sure that it was safe and that our doctors will approve it. When we called the company that sells Poly-MVA, they encouraged us to share the ingredients with our doctor and then ask him to call them. We did. Our oncologist talked to them and declared Poly-MVA to be safe. We used the product by following the guidelines recommended by the experts at Poly-MVA. You can read up on Poly-MVA on our website on the Treatments page. Poly-MVA was a big part of our plan to fight cancer.
ATC is a cancer that grows very rapidly. Although we wanted to try the relatively long-term solutions (see item #3 and #4) that may take weeks or months, we also realized that radiation was necessary to kill the existing cancer cells, while we continue to work on additional treatments (Poly-MVA, raising pH level, massage, yoga, acupuncture, etc.).
In addition to the five items listed above, we also used other techniques as part of our approach, such as working with a nutritionist on a 6-week vegetarian diet, massage therapy, acupuncture, yoga, and working out with a personal trainer. Luckily Sharee had documented all this information in her blog in 2004.
- Positive attitude
Although we feel that beating cancer requires all the things that we have listed above in our approach, Sharee mentioned in her blog that she believed that raising her pH level and using Poly-MVA were the two key reasons why we were able to successfully overcome ATC cancer. We hope the information on this website helps you and your loved ones.
Don’t ever give up the fight against cancer!
