I have to interrupt the story about my uncle to explain how he found the life-changing solution to his liver cancer.
You have probably wondered why some people can do some new fad diet and it works well for them, but for you it seemed to have the opposite effect. Over a decade ago, my husband and I found a way of eating that beats any fad diets you will find by focusing on who you are as an individual. You do not have to eat high protein and low carbohydrate just because someone else did. Nor do you have to eat vegetarian just because some movie star did. Since we are not created equal, we need person-specific diets.
Think of this: you do not wear the same size clothes as your neighbor. You and your best friend probably do not have the same hair color. You may not have the same eye color as others in your own home. We do not expect you to play the piano just because your aunt plays. Just because I like to read, not everyone will. Because I can crochet or my husband can put on roofs or my father can install heating systems, should everyone else? No! We’re all uniquely made by our Master Creator. Why should we all expect to eat the same?
We discovered the Blood Type Diet and, later, the more in-depth version called the Genotype Diet. Taking all your uniqueness into account, this diet prescribes a diet in keeping with your chemical and genetic makeup. Our family has followed this way of eating for the past 11 years: 9 years on the BTD and 2 years with the GTD.
When my mother called to tell me about my uncle’s tumor, I urged her to get my uncle to go see Dr. Peter D’Adamo, the author of the Right 4 Your Type books. He has a clinic located right in Connecticut, only a few hours from my family. They could test my uncle and find his specific diet. Each person has a unique diet. It doesn’t get better than that.
In addition to knowing your blood type and genotype, if you are dealing with serious issues, you may consider taking the SWAMI. You can buy the software for only $70 to find your specific diet. In order to take this test you would have to know your blood type and genotype.
Next time, more on my uncle’s continued improvement in kicking cancer.
My uncle received a liver cancer diagnosis on July 27, 2010. When his regular doctor called him in for a six month check up, they found one tumor the size of three apples on his liver. They said a vein running underneath the cancer would make surgery impossible. They also told him a mother tumor was feeding the current tumor, but they could not find it yet. He saw an oncologist a week later. She said this rare cancer was out of her area of ability.
At his church that Sunday, they had a powerful service! When my Uncle went up for with his pastor, the presence of God engulfed him. He stood there, as the Lord washed him thoroughly with His Spirit. He said he had never felt the Lord so strongly.
A week after seeing the oncologist, he went to Boston to see specialists. The doctors said a mother tumor existed but they could not find it. They said this because this kind of tumor does not grow unless a mother tumor feeds it. My uncle baffled the doctors when he told them he had no pain. To have such a huge tumor and it not be causing pain is a bit mystifying. To God be the glory!
They told him the therapies that were available: Chemotherapy, radiation, then operate and blast what was left of the cancer. In addition to the normal side effects (hair loss, sickness), they said he would experience permanent numbness in his fingers and toes. Even after the burn, slice, and poison method, they only gave him a 20% chance to live for 5 years! If he did nothing for his cancer, they gave him 2 years to live.
At 65, having 3 healthy grandchildren he would like to stay alive for, he decided he would rather live 2 good years than 5 miserable ones. He figured he would rather enjoy the last bit of life he had with his family, if this was his time.
However, he began to look toward the natural therapies. What he discovered amazed us. More on this topic next time.
