Hey all you awesome semi-colons!!

Well, yesterday was my 5 year colonoscopy and nary a polyp was found and the surgeon declared me CURED!

I didn't post right away because I had to allow that to sink in for one, and for another, do we EVER really believe that we are cured and that it won't come back? Even if posting this I think, what if.......

But bud encouraged me to post it and so here I am telling my world!

For those who do not know me I was a Stage 3 lymph positive colon cancer survivor who opted out of the chemo not having one treatment ever. Never.

I chose instead to use Western diagnostics and Eastern Medicine which included my foundation of juicing organic veggie juices to the tune of 3 quarts a day. I detoxed, tweaked my diet, had acupuncture, took chinese herbs, and went for weekly massages, bodywork, and counseling. For 6 months. And worked hard at it. I reignited my yoga practice and kept on exercising. I ended toxic relationships and avoided new ones.

And I discovered, as we all have, the wonderful community of semi-colons who have allowed me my soap box to spread my message of hope and healing.

I want you all to celebrate with me and I thank you for being on this forum. I learn so much about cancer, it's standard treatments, and the courage you all have to face your daily battles. thank you for allowing me to witness your stamina and endurance in the face of adversity.

Thank you.

I raise my carrot juice to my cancer compatriots!

peace, emily who continues to juice no matter what......

It honestly isn't that bad! i happen to love my carrot juice recipe and have to have it much like folks with their morning coffee. So getting it down hasn't been a problem. but if you start juicing, start off with small amounts and build up. According to Max Gerson (grandaddy of juicing), his cancer cures had you juicing 12 8oz glasses of carrot juice per day. I didn't want to do that so I just did it in larger increments. Not necessarily the best way but it worked for me.

peace, emily www.discountjuicers.com

Yea!!! That rocks! What a wonderful thing to hear. Believe it because it is true!! I am so glad that you posted this. I am sure there are so many people who have been inspired by you over the last 5 years, besides myself. You have so much good information to share with all those who choose to listen and follow, even if only in part, your holistic approach.
I am glad you posted because it reminds me to finish washing this gross old juicer that a friend gave me! It is not a Champ, it is probably more like a "WIMP" but I am gonna give it a go. Maybe it will inspire me to go out and get a "real" juicer!
Take care. I hope to talk to you soon,
Susan H.

Hi Emily,
Congratulations mate. I truly admire your courage. In a world where docs say JUMP most of us yell "how high", you decided to do it your way. I don't know whether you ever had doubts,though I doubt that you did, you had total faith in the path that you had chosen and it has delivered you to CURED. I am glad for you and your family .

oh man....all you Rockin' Semi-colons have so touched my heart with your wonderful replies!

I just got home tonight (my one work day plus parent/teacher conferences for my one not homeschooled) and it was SOOOOO nice to open up this thread and read all your warm wishes.

I have moments of euphoria (someone told me tonight I was glowing so I had to tell her why) mixed with....oh but what if....ACK!

I do what I do with diligence for ALL of us. Because you all know what my "someday" dream is......that no one will have to suffer through chemo ever again.

I thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for the encouragement of you words to keep keeping on.....

Susan, I had to laugh at your WIMP comment.

Just think the song.....WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS!!! and then get juiced! haha

hugs to you all. We're in it together.

peace, emily who poops orange (TMI! haha)(I couldn't resist)

Hello, Congratulations, wow five years that is such great inspirational news. How many positive lymph nodes did you have? Can you share your juicing methods, what kinds of veg./fruit did you juice? I really beleive this helps to cure and plan to purchase a juicer soon for my husband. You can read about our experience under "question about lymph nodes". Any thoughts or experiences would be really appreciated.

Congratulations again!
