Fighting Cancer With Nutrition - Paw Paw

My dear Mom was diagnosed with Leukemia when she was 65 years old, a cancer of the blood. 

She was in the hospital receiving chemotherapy treatments for a number of weeks, then came home cancer free, and had to go back into the hospital for a follow-up treatment.  I am thankful to say that she has seen her 90th birthday this past month of October, 2018.  After treatments her cancer went into remission and never returned.


I know that this is not the way things go for everyone, and there is so much that can be said about cancer.  

Years ago I did a post that shared a bit about my Mom, and about Paw-Paw, and herbal remedy some use for cancer. I am moving the content of that post to this blog, it follows:

About 21 years ago, a little after Mother's Day I was just leaving a retreat for women, and received a call that my Mom had been rushed to the hospital in pain. Her blood work was terrible, her liver was enlarged, her lungs holding fluid, and more, and to make a long story short, within 24 hours she was diagnosed with acute leukemia. For weeks she was in the hospital, and for some time after she received treatment for this cancer, but the ending of our story is a happy one. She went into a complete remission, and is still with us today, thanks to good care from her doctors, and answers to many prayers.

I am sure that there is not a single person reading this that has not in some way been touched by cancer, if not personally, than by knowing someone with this disease.

I do not have any quick or magic cures to offer you, but I do have something to tell you about that has been helpful. First, know that I am not a doctor, and that I focus on things from the perspective of nutrition. I also believe God answers the prayers of those who put their faith and trust in the One true God, our creator, who knows more about our bodies than we ever could.

Among the many plants that God has given us that benefit our health, He has provided a wonderful plant called Paw Paw. Paw paw contains properties that deprive cancer cells of the energy they need to grow and reproduce, and unlike chemotherapy, it does this without harming healthy cells. This is not just another "magic bullet", it is something that has been studied for many years and may be worth consideration as part of a good nutrition plan for someone with cancers that may be improved by Paw Paw.

Paw paw contains compounds called "annonaceous acetogenins" that, in layman's terms, "convince" cells to self-destruct.

When you use Paw Paw, it has to be used correctly. There are herbs and supplements you should avoid while using it, and if you are already in treatment, that also has to be taken into consideration. I do have a lot more information, including more scientific explanations, about this wonderful herb that I can send to you by email...the information is in pdf format, opened by Adobe which most computers have. 
Please contact me using the comment section below, (I approve all comments and will not approve one that contains a private request) for this information, and for fact sheets. You can also search for Paw Paw at this link, and will be lead to a source for it, as well as links to fact sheets.

When you are dealing with cancer, the medical doctors have a role, and nutritionists like myself have a different role.  Nutritionists do not cure cancer, but provide you with a food and supplement program that should not interfere with any treatments that you may be receiving.

You should always make sure your oncologist and other doctors are aware of any supplements you may be taking, and your nutritionist aware of the things your oncologist does not want you to have. 

You need to be your own advocate, or if you are too weak to do so yourself, have someone, perhaps a family member, advocate for you in this must be a team player in your treatment. 
People contact me often seeking help for cancer, but I am not taking clients at present.  Perhaps some of the resources and links on this page will be helpful to you with your battle against cancer.
