I studied at Harvard as an undergraduate and in the spring of 1965 started a used bicycle business in a garage I rented for $15 a month. I had recently lost my part time job and was broke! To my utter surprise bicycle sales were so good I couldn’t fix up used bikes fast enough! I rented a retail store and also sold new bikes and called it The Bicycle Revival. I eventually established 17 bicycle stores in the Boston area, Philadelphia, Florida, New Hampshire and Cape Cod. Soon after I opened my first store in Cambridge, I became too busy to study and took what I thought would be a year off, but regrettably, I never returned to finish my last year as business kept growing and growing and I liked making lots of money! I sold the business to an Italian company in 1971, got married and moved to New Hampshire to manage a land and timber business and started a family.
In 1974 my mother began to suffer severely from multiple autoimmune diseases including rheumatoid arthritis, depression and psoriasis. She would wake up with bloody sheets from scratching her psoriasis sores! Her doctors proscribed anti-inflammatory drugs with serious side effects and said there was no cure for autoimmune diseases!
I refused to accept this pessimistic prognosis and began intensively researching to find an unknown therapy that might help her. After months of study, including using the Harvard Medical School library, I devised a therapy and to our amazement she improved so rapidly, my Irish Catholic mother thought God had bestowed a miracle!
The therapy was a non-allergenic, non-gluten diet with a wide array of nutritional supplements. Inflammation had damaged the villa in her lower intestines and she thus had mal-absorption problems which is why supplements were so important. She also had a serious gluten food allergy than her physicians never suspected.
Although mother’s symptoms were in remission, she adored good tasting food and could never completely stay on her diet. When she significantly went off her diet her symptoms came raging back! She stayed on her diet well enough to control her symptoms and never suffered the degree of pain and suffering as before.
Recently, two people close to me developed bladder cancer. I had been researching for a book on cardiovascular disease but started to immerse myself in finding adjuvant therapies for cancer hoping I might help them. I have remained fascinated with alternative health since I helped my mother in 1974 and recently started a blog at www.livejournal.com.
Treating cancer is not exclusively the responsibility of the oncologist, it is the patient’s responsibility also! You must maintain the proper attitude, diet and life style practices that will sufficiently strengthen your immune system to help defeat cancer and prevent it from metastasizing!
Patients walk a think line between their cancer killing them or their immune system killing the cancer! Surviving long term depends on how successful conventional and natural therapies are! The strength of your immune system is incredibly important and it is difficult for a patient to have a strong immune system when taking chemo and radiation that profoundly lower immune competence! This is why taking numerous adjuvant therapies in this book will greatly enhance your chances of survival by strengthening the immune system and performing other anti-cancer functions. Your fate may depend upon the therapies you will learn about in this book and take as part of your treatment plan!
“God helps those who help themselves!”
