I am a woman from Cyprus, the sunny land of plenty. Plenty of fruit, vegetables and of course continuous sunshine. It is nicknamed the island of love because it was the legendary birthplace of Aphrodite, the goddess of love.

I am five(what? I mean 7 in a few days -October 13 I was diagnosed!) years out after being diagnosed with stage three breast cancer. I am doing well, having avoided the usual horrors such as mastectomy, chemo and ancillary clearance – this means I refused the removal of all of the  lymphs under my armpit and only had four removed. I also refused a drug called tamoxifen, which is a known carcinogen. Now I am bravely looking forward to the future with great optimism and attribute my wellness to a belief in nature and natural treatments.

    • I am pisces and react instinctively to crises. I thought my best bet was nature as I have experience of alternative medicine for many years.i STARTED HAVING MASSAGES, CHINESE MERIDIAN MASSAGE IS AWESOME, avoided dairy and most meat and visited a Swiss cancer clinic six months after diagnosis.There they removed all the black fillings in my mouth and the root canal. All this cost thousands of euros. They gave me mistletoe, which enhances the immune system, a bicarbonate of soda remedy, turmeric in capsules and some strong antioxidant liquid and a ketogenic diet, similar to the Atkins but healthier. After I heard they were not pleased with this diet with their stage four patients. They recommended progesterone cream. Read the post entitled A great confession” concerning progesterone. I also was near the menopause. I found it a boon when it arrived.
