Here’s what I’m doing to help my son fight for his life
I’ve taken matters into my own hands and Kicker has not experienced any side effects from the 100+ doses of chemotherapy he’s received. I hope you’ll benefit from learning what we’ve done to support his body. Aside from following a ketogenic diet, and implementing a therapeutic protocol for immune support, we’ve done four detox therapies for him. 1. Castor Oil Pack Detox The castor oil pack is specifically for detox. In my experience, it’s very effective when dealing with non-cancerous uterine fibroids and ovarian cysts. Other conditions which seem to respond well include headaches, liver disorders, constipation, intestinal disorders, gallbladder inflammation or stones, conditions with poor elimination, nighttime urinary frequency, and inflamed joints. Kicker holds the castor oil pack against his liver for at least 20 minutes (the length of a cartoon) and does this five nights a week. Some details should you and your medical professional decide to use castor oil packs: It’s not to be used during pregnancy, heavy menstrual flow, or the presence of internal bleeding. Click here to read the procedure and the supplies needed. You may fall asleep and wear the pack all night if needed. If using a heating pad, unplug it before falling asleep. For maximum effectiveness, apply the pack as often as possible – at least four consecutive days per week for at least 4-6 weeks. Daily use provides the most beneficial effects. 2. Detox Bath with Epsom Salt, Baking Soda & Essential Oils The sulfates in Epsom salt help flush toxins and heavy metals from the cells, easing muscle pain and helping the body to eliminate harmful substances. Your skin is a highly porous membrane – adding the right minerals to your bathwater triggers a process called reverse osmosis, which actually pulls salt out of your body, and harmful toxins along with it. The baking soda helps rid the body of chemicals from food, drugs, radiation exposure, etc. We do these baths at least 4 days week. Materials we use for one bath: 2 cups Epsom salt 2 cups baking soda (aluminum free) 8 drops of pure Rosemary and Juniper Berry essential oils Procedure we use: Add salt and baking soda to a very warm bath and let dissolve for five minutes. Add four drops each of Rosemary and Juniper Berry essential oils, as both are specific for detoxing the body. 3. Nebulize for Glutathione production We purchased this nebulizer and our Osteopath put together a ‘cocktail’ of detox nutrients to stimulate Kicker’s glutathione production. This very important antioxidant helps prevent damage to cells. As Dr. Mark Hyman states, “(Glutathione) is the most important molecule you need to stay healthy and prevent disease.” Although our bodies naturally produce glutathione, when the liver is burdened with toxins (medicine, environmental toxins, radiation, etc) our body becomes incapable of producing the necessary amount – making it an important part of cancer detox. For more on the importance on glutathione, and how to make sure you aren’t deficient, read this. Contact your holistic physician or work with an alternative pharmacy, like this one. 4. Green Juice This green juice is important to our detoxification routine. It assists in the rapid removal of metabolic wastes from the body and the rebuilding of damaged tissues. Juicing helps clear the kidneys of toxins and contribute to the proper digestion of food. Kicker drinks this juice at least 4-6 days a week. Green juice consists of the following: 1 apple (to sweeten) 1 orange 2 stalks of celery 1 cucumber 1 carrot 1 bunch of parsley 1 bunch cilantro 8 beet greens 1 red bell pepper 1 green cabbage 1 lemon 1/2 bulb of ginger It’s very important that the produce in the juice is all organically grown. I don’t recommend powdered greens as most of them have been preserved and are not in their most nutrient-dense state. So where do you even begin? If you have cancer or love someone who does, it’s important to implement changes immediately. 1. I would address diet and begin looking at a ketogenic diet. 2. Increase your daily water intake to a number of ounces equal to 50% of your body weight in pounds. This is important so you can successfully flush toxins out of your body. 3. I would employ the services of a holistic physician that specializes in cancer and purchase the supplies necessary to begin detoxing. Here is a resource to find a holistic naturopathic doctor in your area who supports cancer patients. If you are in California, these are the two wellness centers I recommend: Optimal Wellness Cancer Center for Hope. On the east coast, Dr. Nick Gonzalez M.D. Dr. Rashid Buttar, DO.
