Brain Tumour

Brain Tumour Story from Rose 
 One day in the spring of 2005 Rose woke up to a heart flutter that left her uncomfortable and concerned. Upon seeing a doctor it was discovered that she had cancer in the R lung. This diagnoses led to 35 radiation treatments and to 3 day chemotherapy treatments within the next year. However, one year later in the summer of 2006 it was discovered that now Rose also had tumours in the brain area. Surgery was not possible at this time so radiation treatments continued, this time, on the brain area. In December of 2006 Rose and her husband learned about the Paw Paw program which is available exclusively through independent distributors of Nature Sunshine. She therefore contacted Donna Roth and began a new adventure .Rose started the Paw Paw program using: Chinese Mineral Chi Tonic about 2 to 3 ounces a day, Chlorophyll and water several times a day, Super Oil about 4 a day, Paw Paw up to 12 a day and Protease Plus enzymes about 3 in the morning , 3 at night on an empty stomach. She also eliminated sugar , wheat, yeast and junk food of any kind from her daily diet. Rose also took supplements to make sure her bowels were well emptied every day. In February of 2007 Rose experienced an attack of severe spasms similar to a stroke. She called Donna for some coaching as she really felt that the Paw Paw was somehow contributing to her spastic attacks . Donna reassured her that Paw Paw has absolutely no side effects but it could be possible that she was experiencing a healing crisis as described in her book , The Practical Solution to the Cancer Injury, Manual. Rose also consulted with her doctor who recommended 2 sets of radiation treatments of 5 days each and a prescription drug to help reduce the swelling in the brain. Rose agreed and stopped the use of the Paw Paw program for a number of reasons. She felt very apprehensive in using Paw Paw and thought that perhaps the Paw Paw was contributing to the stroke symptoms she was having. She also noticed that the taste of food had changed and that she wasn’t sleeping well. She , therefore ,felt quite comfortable in not taking Paw Paw during the 5 days of the radiation treatments. Upon resuming Paw Paw she noticed that Paw Paw really had nothing to do with the symptoms she was experiencing. She did, however reduce the dosage from 12 a day to 8 a day. Rose admitted that she wasn’t about to reveal this Paw Paw program to her doctor because she was very sceptical and didn’t think it was doing her any good. But interestingly enough she continued just in case it might be of some value to her health. At the end of February of 2007 Rose once again underwent stroke- like symptoms where she temporarily lost the movement of her right leg and arm. Once again she visited Emergency . The symptoms lasted only a brief time and passed within 24 hours. No damage was done and once again she used the drug to reduce the swelling of the brain. Such occurrences such as loss of speech and number memory loss appeared a few more times during the year. In January of 2008 Rose visited her oncologist who declared that now he would be able to operate on the brain tumours to remove them. On January 29, 2008 Rose had her first surgery where the surgeon removed 2 tumours that were the size of golf balls. They came out very easily and told Rose that these tumours were empty. Two weeks later Rose had her second surgery and 3 small tumours were very easily removed . It was at this point that Rose was told she had no more cancer. Rose recuperated from her 2 surgeries very quickly . Rose is very grateful that she followed the program and she attributes her healing to the Nature Sunshine Paw Paw program. She is totally glad that she did not stop taking the Paw Paw. Today Rose continues to stay on this program and has now incorporated it as part of her lifestyle.
