Breaking the Cancer Code

Who do you know that doesn‘t have their life touched by cancer? In our own lives, or those of family and friends, cancer is a hot topic today. Within our communities, stories are rampant that demonstrate the need to find a new way out of the cancer predicament.

Breast Cancer Awareness month is always a time of reflection for me. In 2003 I was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer, specifically infiltrating ductal carcinoma. The recommendation of three medical experts was all the same, "You have no option but a complete mastectomy, with full courses of chemotherapy and radiation."  My only problem with this prognosis was, the doctors were offering me the same treatment both my grandmothers had received 30 years earlier. I thought it was strange that when it came to (breast) cancer, we hadn't progressed past the disco era. After all I only wanted to be “Stayin’ Alive like the popular Bee Gee’s 1970s hit song!

I wasn't trying to be heroic when I said no thank you to the mastectomy and started looking for a less invasive treatment protocol. I told a minister friend about my situation, and she had just had treatment with a doctor who was using the patient's own immune system to treat cancer. She referred me to Rubio Cancer Center.

When I met Dr. Geronimo Rubio, several authors on integrative cancer treatments were already writing about his comprehensive approach to reversing cancer. He got busy in the lab, using customized cancer vaccines, making the treatment specific to each patient's condition. By imparting to the immune system that the invader-cancer was on board, the immune system starts to destroy the invader. He also uses extensive health building vitamins, non-toxic herbs, bio-electrical medicine and detoxification protocols to return the body to homeostasis, making the patient cancer free.
