Dear all,

A very dear friend of mine, Lucy (70) was diagnosed with cancer last september: a large grapefruit size tumor in the abdomen, between the stomach, duodenum and pancreas (and affecting the pancreas). The food she ate was blocked in the stomach because of this and nothing would go beyond the stomach.

She needed an operation to create a bypass in order for the food to follow its normal route down through the intestines. But the surgeon didn't touch the tumor because it was way too big.

She was programmed for chemotherapy as soon as she recovered from the operation and started eating again. This in order to reduce the tumor to be able to operate. They didn't lead her to believe there was much hope.

We agreed together that she would follow the Blood Type A non-secretor cancer diet according to Peter D'Adamo's book, Cancer.

After some time of having to readjust to being able to eat normally, meaning gradually introducing the recommended foods, she was also able to swallow supplements. I gave her all I could in drop form. She has now been taking almost all of the recommended supplements.

She also told her doctors about the blood type diet and supplements she was taking and they said she could do anything else she wanted. They were not interested in the details.

On the 30 December 2009, she had her first scan since the one that discovered the tumor. Are you all sitting down?
And I must add about a week before the scan she started taking homeopathic remedies given by another doctor who also does acupuncture.

The doctors (oncologist and surgeon and a third one I know less about)were astonished by what they saw. They could hardly believe their eyes: the tumor had significantly diminished and they told her: " Whatever you are doing, continue". She had told them several times about the blood type diet but they were not interested to know about it and even now they don't want to know more.

And last but not least, she has a lovely lady, Edith, a former nurse, who comes in to sleep most nights, does her shopping and most of the cooking, eats the same food she eats (she is also a blood type A). I taught her about the blood type diet and gave her some cooking instructions. She has lost 20 pounds on delicious, nutritious food and is delighted.

I will keep you posted on further results.

PS The markers are steadily and surely dropping and her white blood cells are fine too.

Heaps of appreciation and gratitude to you Dr D.

Amazing story! I'm sure it will give hope to many people with serious health challenges.

Sad that the docs don't want to hear anything, they could be quite an influence on the road to better health for everyone.

Karen, thank you for sharing this heart-warming story with us.  Your friend is fortunate to have you in her life. Dr. D sure saved my life when I was going through cancer.  And out the other side with 8 years behind me.  

There is always hope for recovery and return to good health.  Right eating, powerful supplements, an optimistic attitude and a good social network with loving friends!  A good formula for success.



Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

Karen,
What a wonderful and caring friend you are.  It's truly miraculous what the right food can do for your health and for your soul.  Dr. D, you must take such pleasure in hearing about the "miracles"  that occur when people are eating right....
I'm tear-y too.

Must say I am amazed at the fact that her doctors are not interested in her way of eating, aka BTD. What more proof do they need that it works??

This is a fantastic story. I wish I had know about all this when my Dad died of Cancer in 1996. I am passing the information on to a family friend who has just been diagnosed with breast cancer. This is truly inspirational. Thank you for sharing and keep us posted with her progress.

Well here comes some absolutely terrific, astonishing, wonderful, amazing (you add the rest) news.

Lucy's tumor has vanished! No where to be seen/found by the scanner. No need for the planned operation. Just to remind you the tumor had spread to the pancreas and that was not good news.

Her doctors were truly amazed (they said). Her oncologist said she has never seen this with chemo alone. Again they said continue what you are doing. Still not interested to know what it is. I do have hopes that they will come around.

She now has one more series of chemotherapy. And she is done!

Cancer cells are probably still around but the tumor is gone.

They want to give her a medication for life. Didn't yet say what. Here in France it is sometimes difficult to get the full information from the doctors.  I reminded Lucy it was up to her to decide whether or not she wanted a "for life" medication. We shall see. She is opened to other options. As she says I take every day as it comes and with what it brings.

When I heard this news over the phone, I was in tears. I couldn't contain my happiness for her. She has been very courageous throughout all of this and her belief in her healing was always up. That is in my opinion what enabled her to be so good about the diet and the supplements.

I want to emphasize the supplements (those recommended by Dr D in the cancer book) plus a couple others prescribed by her homeopathic doctor. I believe they played an immense rôle.

I will keep you informed as the months, years go by.

This is what miracles are about. You put the right ingredients together and the alchemy takes place. This is the first one. I am sure the next is yet to come!

Spread the news!

just congratulating .. what a wonder to have at least the semblance of something we can do  when all else has been tried.. eat us to better health.. good job all around.


Being here is invaluable, but not enough. We need ALL the Doctors. I needed them for a very small cancer spot-I could never feel!!! Please do your mammograms! Doing so saved me from cancer later on. I am grateful! Thanks for learning from my experience! I was lucky! I wish the same for YOU!

Back in Sept 09...my teenage sweetheart called me after 25 years to tell me she had cancer in the mouth and her doctors said she would be on indefinite treatment for it (gave her a bad prognosis)  as they could not remove it surgically. I said to her..."you called me at the right time of my life where I think I can help you overcome this" She agreed to let me help her. I swamied her...A Teacher (she had 8 whirls)....gave her a 1 month meal plan with all the recipes and I put her on cancer fighting supplements, as well as polyflora and proberry to keep her immune system strong. I told her to tell the doctors to give her an extensive treatment (take as much as she could).She was treated with chemo and radiation for three months while on the diet and the doctors  told her that the tumor had miraculously disappeared. She took to the treatment quite well...did not get sick much and her appetite was good. The doctors asked her if she was doing any other treatments and all she said in a tongue and cheek way..."my teenage sweetheart had a little love left over for me in his pocket and he gave it to me"

very inspiring!
you are her guardian angle during her time of need.....

this is all Dr D needs....people following the guidelines closely, and not question every step they take......conviction as an important part of the equation.

I'm crying.  This is beautiful.  Thank you for sharing this.  Beautiful.



I'm crying too! I wasn't going to admit it until I read that you were too! lol

Hearing a success story like this is so great. Especially being a person that has had cancer and the only way I knew how to cure it at the time was by water fasting. That was difficult to say the least. I did beat my ovarian cancer but I wish I would've known about the correct blood type to follow instead. I do believe it would've been happier and easier than totally cutting out all foods. Having superfoods and highly beneficials are so important for healing!

Such a great testimonial! Any updates on her or her nurse?



O positive baby boy.
