I am a 60 year-young woman that started smoking when I was 14-15 years old and I smoked until I was 36 years of
age. I had developed high blood pressure and thought if I quit smoking it would help stop the bloodpressure problem,
it didn't. My husband still smoked in the house. I was diagnosed with cronic obstructive pulmanary disease in 2000
after having bronchitus two years in a row around the same time of the year. The Dr. put me on inhalers for this,
I was on these for 4 years before I had a breathing problem that caused the Doctor to take a chest x-ray. She was
looking for pneumonia and thought the x-ray was good but the radiologist found the shadow that proved to be stage
4 lung cancer that had mestasized to the liver and the adrenal glands. The oncologist stated I had 6 to 9 months
to live if I did nothing, or a year or a little more IF I did the chemotherapy, which I did. I did get sick, lost
my hair and became very weak. I had a flu shot the first part of October and a day or two later I became very weak
and breathless, we all thought I was having a reaction the the flu vaccine, but nobody checked anything.
Eventully my oncologist thought I should have a heart checkup and we found that I had had two heart attacks , the
first one I never knew about but the back right part of the heart muscle is dead and does not beat. At first they
said the attacks were from my high blood pressure and NOT from the chemotherapy, but later the oncologist stated
we couldn't do anymore chemotherapy because of what it had did to my heart.
We were in a hold position waiting for my strength to build up. I didn't like not doing anything so on Oct 23, 2004 I started taking the PolyMVA at
8 teaspoons a day. My sister
had taken me earlier to see Dr. Mary Schrick and had me tested and bought the supplies for me, but my Dr. said
I should not take this with the chemo.( I now wish I had earlier). I refused to start up the chemotherapy again.
By Thanksgiving I was feeling
good enough to fix the meal and by Christmas I was like a new woman. In Feb. I had a chest x-ray and they didn' t see anything so we had a pet scan done
two weeks later and the nurse
was so excited she had goose bumps as she said there is nothing on the liver and nothing on the adrenals and the
place on the lung is only 2cm. in size where it had been 3 inches in size.
I feel great and have energy to climb the stairs to get to my Sunday school class, I could ride the elevator but
why when you feel good enough to climb the stairs!!! I thank my heavenly Father for His miraculous healing and for the natural product of the PolyMVA
that helped do the healing.
I will try to send my picture but if I can't get this to work I will mail one to you. Waiting to hear from you
and oh, yes I just joined the PolyMVA group on Yahoo. Freda
