In 2016 I faced the challenge of being diagnosed with lymphoma cancer, stage 4 (MALT), where 50% of my bone marrow was cancerous.
How This Journey Began
The story began in the spring of 2016 with me having an eye examination to update my eyeglasses.
The optometrist, a Japanese woman, examined my eyes and saw a strange growth in the tissue of my left eyeball. By her body language, I knew it was quite serious. She recommended I see an ophthalmologist. I decided to follow her advice and get it diagnosed after my summer bible metaphysical retreat.
I Received A Warning Dream
Now this story had a strange twist or beginning that prepared me for this challenge. Some years earlier I had a very disturbing dream that warned me of this coming crisis/challenge. The dream begins with an attractive white doctor in an examination room telling me that I had a very rare cancer. She didn’t say where it was. I told her I needed to close on a condominium first.
I had been taking supplements, juicing, etc., for years after recovering from a flesh-eating disease in 1994. So, I knew I had to intensify my health regiment which I did.
Medical Doctor’s Findings
After the summer retreat I checked into Rush University by going to the ophthalmologist, Dr. G did the initial diagnosis and confirmed that I had a rare cancer of the eye tissue called lymphoma. He referred me to an oncologist. I reflected on the dream I had years earlier and remembered that I had been forewarned.
The oncologist Dr. V examined my eye and confirmed that it looked like lymphoma in the tissue of the eye, He recommends a number of tests to confirm it: biopsy, MRI, CAT SCAN, and blood work, which all confirmed the initial diagnosis.
I then got a second opinion from a doctor at Northwestern University hospital who confirmed the first Doctor’s diagnosis and I began my 8-week treatment the last day in December 2016. My treatments lasted through mid-February 2017. Dr. V at Rush recommended I take a number of tests again to confirm the results of the 8-week treatment. He and I both were pleased to discover the lymphoma cancer cells decreased from. 50% in my bone marrow to less than 1%.
He told me to return in three months and we would do watchful waiting. I returned in June, September, and November to learn that all was well. I repeated some of the tests in December and the doctor told me in January 2018 that all was well again and I should return in six months.
I took the nutraceuticals (herbs, mushrooms, and vitamins) highlighted at the mytophotherbs.com website as an adjunct therapy before, during, and after my targeted protein 8-week treatment for stage4 lymphoma cancer. I am now a year cancer survivor and at my last checkup, Dr. V said my blood work and other indicators were phenomenal. He’s trying to figure out why his lymphoma cancer cells are still decreasing in my body a year after I took the targeted protein treatment. Normally people have to take a take a maintenance treatment to keep the cancer low. The maintenance treatment would have been for two years once a month beginning last April since it is always a chance that the Lymphoma can return.
