In 2005 I was diagnosed with “CML” a chronic form of leukemia. I was 43 and back at school interning as a Geriatric Care Manager. My health coverage was my husband’s which was a moderate amount provide by the FDNY. I had traditional diagnostic testing & treatments: bone marrow taps from my hip, chemo, prednisone & narcotic pain medication. I also had traditional side effects of nausea, vomiting, needle pain & fatigue. While still a new patient, my oncologists stopped accepting my health insurance saying it, “wasn’t paying enough” to cover their costs. It was difficult finding an MD that accepted a patient with a pre-existing condition in 2005. We paid for the cancer care out-of-pocket and by 2006 I was in remission.
In 2008 the leukemia came back. This time it was a more acute form and a colleague offered an alternative treatment of rejuvenation of the blood. The treatment was similar to dialysis therapy and like my coverage before it was not covered by insurance. By this time I had researched the world over for safer treatments. I paid to join medical websites for information in treating cancer. I wanted to avoid the harsh side effects while working toward being healthier. Chemo left me with permanent side effects of anemia, headaches, shortness of breath, bleeding gums, missing teeth. I had neuropathy in my wrists & hip pain from needles. Nearly bankrupt, we mortgaged our home & borrowed money from family/friends. I had an IV port in my neck that, to this day, I can feel where it was. The “rejuvenation” therapy cleansed my blood. It was a long process with good results as we watched my numbers dwindle. This treatment was wonderful and kept me in remission…until it didn’t.
“To my mind, healing means returning a malfunctioning human body to full unrestricted function, not to remove parts of it by operation or amputation” – Dr. Rudolph Breuss
July 2013, the leukemia resurfaced. Broke & desperate not to use chemo I decided to try the Breuss Juice, developed by Austrian Doctor, Rudolph Breuss. Dr. Breuss researched ways to treat the cancer without hurting a body already weakened read about the 900,000 others who have used the juicing therapy with great results. I bought the book ” The Breuss Juice Cancer Cure” book on Amazon for $12 or less. *Link below* In short, the recipe of organic juiced vegetables starved the cancer cells of the protein needed to survive. It’s what chemo is designed to do. The difference is the organic juice will hydrate the healthy cells, not harm them. The juice will prevent the side effects of chemo, radiation & surgery. Breuss juice vegetable juice that consists of 55% red beet root, 20% carrots, 20% celery root, 3% raw potato, 2% radishes … The potato is optional except for liver cancer where it plays an important part. As luck would have it, I was already growing these foods in my organic garden & since it was summer they were ready to harvest at the peak of their nutrition.
The strict “juice-only” lasts for 42 days. I was allowed certain teas or broth as a supplement for when really hungry. It sounds horrible but is not nearly as drastic while actually doing it. Some days I was tired and sleeping help pass the time. Other days I had boosts of energy. When really hungry I would sip sage tea which doesn’t interfere with the chemical breakdown of the Breuss Juice. It is a natural appetite suppressant. The mind and thoughts of food is the greatest battle for this juicing therapy. The biggest food I missed: coffee! I waited one week post juicing before having my blood tested.
I’ve been Cancer-Free since October 26, 2013.
DISCLAIMER: The Breuss Juice is what I used to treat cancer. This is my experience. The juice is not an approved or accepted as treatment for cancer or illness in the U.S. It is legal to choose an alternative treatment in the US, but know that health insurance companies will not pay for it. If you want to use this course of treatment for cancer you can educate yourself by obtaining The Breuss Juice Cancer Cure Book and follow the instructions for yourself. I will not accept any responsibility for outcomes. There are no “guarantees”.
To obtain the book on Amazon:
I knew this before trying the juice therapy and you need to know this, too.
CONCLUSION: U.S. MD’s aren’t taught much about nutrition. Johns Hopkins School of Medicine offers the most amount of nutritional course study of just 17hrs. Cancer Orgs aren’t researching organic juicing for treatment of cancers. (I’ve called, emailed, tweeted, posted comments to them and most haven’t replied. When they did, their answer was the same “We have no plans to research organic juicing for treatment of cancer”. BigPharma won’t fund safer studies. Take your health into your own hands.
