Wellness Warrior TV: The Mum Interview
I have a real treat for you guys today. Not only am I shushing my ego and putting up the first ever Wellness Warrior TV video, but it’s also the first time my mum is sharing her personal dance with cancer.
As some of you know, I was diagnosed with a rare cancer called epithelioid sarcoma in 2008, and then again at the end of 2009. Since April 2010 I have been curing myself with a treatment method called Gerson Therapy. My family has been pretty much consumed by this disease for almost four years, so when my mum was diagnosed with breast cancer in April this year we knew exactly how to deal with it. Following her diagnosis, my mum refused any sort of conventional interference. She said no to a mammogram and a biopsy, told them that she wasn’t interested in going down the path of surgery, chemotherapy and radiation, and instead chose the same therapy as me.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Instead of doing what we usually do, and cursing every time we see pink ribbons and advertisements for Girls Nights In – both of which only raise money to add to the multi billion dollar cancer industry – we thought we would take a different approach. Which is why I asked my mum to sit down with me and let me quiz her, 60 Minutes-style, about the decisions she made around her disease.
Mum’s asked me to let you know that she was very much out of her comfort zone and incredibly nervous filming this video, but she hopes she was able to get her message across. Also, there is a cameo by my little pug girl Edie.
This is what you’ll learn in this video:
• What my mum believes triggered her cancer.
• The role hormones play in disease manifestation.
• Why we believe that mammograms are useless, and even dangerous.
• Why my mum refused to have her breast tissue biopsied.
• Why she would refuse to have a lumpectomy (removal of the lump) and a mastectomy (removal of one or both of the breasts), and refuse to have chemotherapy and radiation.
• Why Mum is so confident that Gerson Therapy will work.
• The number one message she would like to get out to people watching this video.
• What she would like Breast Cancer Awareness Month to actually be about.
After you’ve watched the video, leave a comment below and let us know what you think about the topics we discussed.
