Is Cancer Evil or a Blessing in disguise…

I know I’m a little late again with this entry as the day has already come and gone.  However,  I feel I need to write about the event after a little time…to really process what the day meant and how it really resonated with me.  In Particular, I speak of Diwali:

“Sometimes it’s hard to see past the darkness in this confusing world we live in.   May the light of Diwali help take some of that darkness away & illuminate your life with joy, prosperity, health & well-being. May all the abundance and good in the universe lead us from darkness, to the light.” anonymous

I have gone and still go through times when I have dark days and it can become very challenging to find the light.  During my treatment in Germany, About there was a period of time when my family could not be with me and I had to undergo chemotherapy and hyperthermia treatments.  Needless to say, without my family it was difficult until I met my friend, Alexander.  I would never have met him had I not had the “evil” cancer.  It was definitely a blessing to have crossed Alexanders’ path at Dr. Herzog Clinic in Germany.

He brought his beautiful energy and light, not only to me, but to everyone around him.  His beautiful ora brightened the room and his positive energy was instantly felt by those that crossed his path.   I would like to dedicate this entry to my friend,  THE BRAVE Alexander King Paul.

Thank you for giving my the strength during my dark days and now for watching down on me. IMG_3801

An example of how Beautiful he was, take a look at this link:

In addition to being a my friend, he was an artist, a poet, a true inspiration.  Alexander was an extremely talented and gifted spoken word artist.

So how did I end up in Germany you ask?  Well, when my family and I heard my cancer had spread to the liver, my Beautiful sisters were very quick in researching and finding the best course of treatment for me.  Based on the CT scans and how much it the cancer had spread, we decided to embark on an adventure to Germany and seek out a treatment called Whole Body Hyperthermia.  That’s right, Bad Salzhausen, Germany!  A small spa town just North of Frankfurt.

Last November, my husband and I packed our bags and decided we were going to do this!  So my youngest sister packed up her 5 month old and was adamant on coming a long with me!   Her mother in law immediately volunteered to join us and we all set out to the DrHerzog’s Fach Clinic.  A clinic that offered multiple therapies including Full Body Hyperthermia.  So what is it exactly?

Whole Body Hyperthermia (WBH)

The healing effect of fever has been known for many centuries.  Whole body hyperthermia (WBH) is a new treatment using the well-known principle of fever in a therapeutic way. There are different ways of action:

• Fever to activate the immune system

• Heat as thermic damage of cancer tissue

• The thermic increase of the efficiency of chemotherapy

• Moderate Whole Body Hyperthermia – stimulates the immune system.

I would like to say the treatments were a success as I am sitting here sharing this with you lovely readers.  I had 5 rounds of WBH (whole body hyperthermia)  with a low dose of chemotherapy .  After 5 treatments, my CT scan had shown the tumours in the liver had significantly shrunk.  Unfortunately, due to the Toxicity levels in my body, five was the maximum number of treatments my body could endure.  I hope someone seeking alternative therapy may find this helpful.  Please feel free to send me a message or an email if you would like more information about this treatment or the clinic.  (Dr. Herzog or it’s clinic is not paying me for advertisement, it is just something I feel I should share as it helped me get her today.)

  1. Wow. I can’t believe I didn’t know of Alexander before. What a bright light. So amazing you got to meet him but obviously deep and sad as well. I watched that clip and just couldn’t move. It’s like he knew something we don’t. Thanks for telling us more of your journey and your time with him. And also what it was like to be in Germany for all those months. And also the meaning of Diwali. I need to get more connected with Diwali!
