Cancer is expensive. The average cost of medical care and drugs tops $42,000 the first year following a cancer diagnosis, according to the National Cancer Institute. And brace yourself… some treatments may top $1 million. Many of these medical costs are covered – that is, if you have health insurance. And even if you do, the costs covered are typically for conventional medical treatments only.
But what if you choose alternative cancer treatments instead? Those can also be an expensive out-of-pocket option.
If you’ve ever wondered if it’s possible to fight cancer using inexpensive unconventional treatments, then you’ll enjoy meeting our Templeton Wellness Superstars. These are ordinary men and women who have faced cancer and defeated it – often in a surprisingly short amount of time.
Astonishing Cases of Recovery from Cancer That You May Not Know About
- He opted for a simple parasite cleanse. Joe Tippens recovered from terminal lung cancer using a $7 dog medicine after learning of the product from a local veterinarian. And check this out — his recovery time took less than 4 months! Late-stage cancer survivor, Danielle Wotherspoon, opted out of chemo and radiation treatments and instead sought an Integrative Physician who discovered the common parasite that was contributing to her illness.
- He sipped graviola tea. After only 4 months of drinking graviola tea, Kary Gould’s father’s bladder cancer disappeared and the operation for his bladder to be removed was canceled!
- She sweated out toxins in a far infra-red sauna. Alison Gannett was given only 7 months to live after being diagnosed with advanced brain cancer. She chose alternative cancer treatments, among them far infra-red sauna and a detox of heavy metals and chemicals. Dr. Lawrence Wilson in the Townsend Letter for Doctors and Patients said, “If I were to single out one method to combat cancer, it is the sauna.”
- She flushed toxins down the toilet with coffee enemas. Jacquie Waldron benefited from 4 enemas daily in the early stages of her fight against cancer. Ann Cooper is another cancer survivor who used coffee enemas, along with enzyme therapy, to beat pancreatic cancer.
- Get serious about your diet. What you put on the end of your fork is crucial to whether or not you’re feeding your cancer or eating your way out of it. To complicate matters, two people diagnosed with the same cancer may require totally different diets to heal. Research your options to find the diet that suits you best. Explore options such as keto, paleo, macrobiotic, and raw foods. No matter what you do, you’ll want to keep the carbs, sugar, and dairy to an absolute minimum. I learned through my personal journey in battling Stage 4 Melanoma over 35 years ago, that the diet that got me well was not the diet that kept me well. I started out with a strict macrobiotic diet, but it was Dr. Hazel Parcells who encouraged me to pivot to an alternative diet once my recovery was underway.
- He said goodbye to sugar. Cancer survivor, John Krech, recovered from testicular cancer by discovering how sugar is the main food source for cancer cells and eliminating it from his diet.
- She began eating organic. Prue Sinclair was diagnosed with Stage 4 Nodular Melanoma and given only six months to live. Instead of dying, she got busy educating herself and discovered the advantage of an organic, whole foods diet. Eating organic is an easy way to cut cancer risk by 25%.
- He discovered healthy spices. James McCraw discovered the amazing power of spices such as turmeric, cayenne pepper, and ginger in his fight against Stage 4 Glioblastoma.
- Boost your immune response. Breast cancer survivor Christine Holcomb successfully used a combination of Vitamin C, iodine and enzymes. I’ve seen first-hand how Vitamin C can stop cancer in its tracks and wrote about it in this article, “How Vitamin C Saved My Life.”
- Get out in the sun. It only takes about 20 minutes of sunlight daily to optimize your vitamin D levels. You need enough sun exposure to turn your skin a light shade of pink, which means you will produce about 20,000 units of vitamin D. Learn how to optimize your vitamin D levels (even if you live north of 37 degrees latitude) in my article: Vitamin D: The Sunshine Hormone That Fights Cancer.
- She found a biological dentist and changed the course of her disease. Gayle Young discovered the hard way how a temporary crown and a root canal severely impacted her health. Learn more about this important subject: “Why A Biological Dentist Should Be On Your Team of Cancer Experts”.
- He learned why it’s important to consider all options. Professional golf player, Chris Walsh, discovered an unusual mole on his ankle and had it checked out. The prognosis? Possible amputation of his leg. Chris opted instead to pursue an alternative way back to good health. He remains healthy and is still golfing today!
- Whatever healing modality you choose, go all in. Kathy Bero survived two rare and late-stage cancers. One of the things she mentions in her video interview is that she finally began to “turn a corner” when she got serious and made a total commitment to the natural treatments she chose.
- She made time to meditate. Paula Black reversed terminal breast cancer without chemotherapy, radiation or drugs. She contributes her success to her faith in God and the insights and knowledge she gained from her research. Dale Figtree, a 40+ year cancer survivor, was writing her will after being told she didn’t have long to live. Upset and unable to concentrate, she called her yoga instructor who advised her to sit still and meditate. The results were astounding and in a short amount of time, she surprised her doctors who could no longer find the tumor.
- She discovered the importance of emotional healing. Elyn Jacobs, Stage 3 breast cancer survivor, attributes emotional trauma as the root cause of her cancer and the resolution of which she credits for her survival. Discover how toxic relationships can trigger cancer in this article.
- Don’t panic — keep your thoughts in check. The emotions of panic and fear release certain chemicals in your body that can increase the toxic load at a time when your body is crying out for a reduction in stress. See my article: Are Your Thoughts Killing You?
- Build a team of support. Sometimes a cancer diagnosis can make you want to crawl into a hole, but this is a time to rely on friends, family, and a team of professional support. That’s what Kirsten Nussgruber did when she successfully tackled Stage 3 Breast Cancer. We here at The Templeton Wellness Foundation want to be a part of your support team. We’d love for you to join us on these social media platforms: YouTube, Facebook and Pinterest.
I’m personally familiar with the budget solutions suggested above, in addition to many other healing protocols I’ve had the privilege of experiencing. Please enjoy this FREE COPY of The 10 Things I Do Every Day to Stay Cancer Free and check out my book, “I Used to Have Cancer,” in which I detail the many different modalities — some mentioned above and others that have been highly effective in my fight against cancer. I think you will find it a valuable resource (all proceeds from the sale of the book go The Templeton Wellness Foundation).
