The Gift In Me!

February 20, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 161

As the New Year dawned, an astonishing article in the Australian press proclaimed that cancer had outstripped heart disease as the number one killer in the country. This is quite astounding. What has been going on to cause such a turnaround? "Why", is a particularly pertinent question, yet it is rarely asked!

Many believe the diagnosis of cancer is a mandatory death sentence. This is simply not true. In its estimations for 2012, the American Cancer Society named prostate cancer as the most common type and projects that there will be 241, 740 cases during the year. Of all of these, 28,170 men are expected to die, as a result. That means 213,570 will survive. That gives a survivability rate of approximately 80%. This is a far cry from an automatic death sentence! True, the chances of death from some other types of the disease such as pancreatic cancer are significantly greater.

Martin Silverman was diagnosed with testicular cancer when he was seventeen. His gonads swelled to the size of an orange, overnight. His mother acted promptly, so he was seen by a specialist within two days. An aggressive teratoma was diagnosed resulting in surgery two days after that. This was followed by a course of radiation, and he was then fine!

Two years ago, or 37 years after the original event Martin went for a blood test to screen for diabetes that ran in his family. In Britain, the Health Service also performs a battery of additional tests from the blood sample. He did not have diabetes but instead had a PSA reading of 63. PSA stands for "prostate specific antigen"; a level in excess of four suggests the possibility of prostate cancer. Martin was almost 16 times over that limit. When faced with the side effects resulting from the conventional medical treatment for prostate cancer, he was nervous about entering allopathic care. However, at the outset his oncologist talked him into taking hormone pills, but he alarmingly found he was developing breasts. He stopped treatment and embraced a holistic route instead.

He realized his diseases both developed within two years of a break-up of an intimate relationship. This he saw was no coincidence on realizing that it was the reproductive system that was affected. This coincides with the findings of Dr. Gert Hamer, the founder of "Germanic New Medicine". Dr. Hamer developed testicular cancer two years after his son was murdered. After years of investigation and many CT scans to support his thesis, he stated that "all illness" was the result of a stressful event that caused a lesion to grow in the brain. The area of the brain affected, impacted directly on a specific place in the body. In this case, the relevant area involves the testicles in men and the ovaries in women. The traumatic event itself involves a profound loss conflict.

Martin worked to quell the resulting emotional issues, but the first key change on his route to holism was a radical alteration in diet. He fully grasped that the average western nutrition and lifestyle pattern were a way of committing slow suicide. Out went the staples of bread and meat and in came living raw foods. His journey was much influenced by the Hippocrates Health Institute located in Florida. This was co-founded by the late Anne Wigmore who cured herself of cancer by taking wheat grass juice and enzyme rich, raw foods. Martin feels wheatgrass juice tastes awful but as all pet owners will have noticed that their dog or cat goes off and eats grass when feeling unwell. Nobody taught the animal to do this it's instinctual. The same impulse applies to humans, but we have all been educated away from natural cures.

Aside from the juices, Martin includes sprouted seeds and superior quality nutritional supplements into his eating program. He adds coconut water to this, saying it is like drinking hemoglobin. He eradicates fruit as it is too sugary. Sugar is believed to be the main food for cancer cells. Such a diet provides him with all his nutritional requirements and he is now a picture of glowing good health.

Martin is in the process of writing a book called "The Gift in Me". He is doing this because most men are seriously out of touch when it comes to health issues. This is especially true in the realm of the emotions. Women are much better at dealing with these issues, and so he decided to write a book written by a man who reaches out to other men confronted by similar challenges. If you feel that this will help, look out for his "The Gift in Me"scheduled to launch soon.
