It is now 2018. …I never looked back and have been totally cancer free and healthy since diagnosis and surgery in 2011. Followed Budwig protocols at various levels of compliance over the years …and very healthy today. Perfect scans and levels for 7 years now . It works! 

However, don’t forget spirituality, sunshine, exercise and positive outlook ! They are all important factors in creating and sustaining health… Jan 11, 2012 Here is my story: I was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer in June after emergency surgery to remove a large pelvic mass. My levels were very high for CEA and based on the original pathology that I would need chemotherapy as the tumor had ruptured and I was Ovarian Cancer Stage 1B. I took a few weeks to recover from the surgery, and then had another blood test done in mid July -levels had gone up post the surgery. 

I went in for a second opinion, where the pathology was reviewed. I was feeling very good and really didn’t want to go in for the chemotherapy. I was advised at that time by the second opinion that chemo may not be necessary. I had just found the Budwig diet and started it the week before the good news second opinion. Since I had such a large tumor that had ruptured, I didn’t want the cancer to have any chance of return so I totally converted to Budwig diet and my whole family and I have been on it since the last week of July. 

The results have been phenomenal. After 3 weeks on Budwig protocol, my levels started coming down — from 1000 in July, I dropped to 635 in August. By September I was in the 70’s and by October I was below 2 and normal and below 35 respectively, and I had returned to work. I was told that my levels originally would take several months to drop and that during chemo they would actually increase for awhile before going down. 

I met with my original oncologist in late December as a courtesy feedback appointment – everyone deserves the right to learn! When he looked at my labs, his jaw dropped. He wanted to continue the discussion with me about why chemo, but couldn’t as the numbers spoke for themselves. He stumbled for a moment, and then said “Congratulations!”

He had never seen numbers come down that rapidly before (mostly because everyone he saw was having chemo). He didn’t pursue my comment about my new food program — I’m sure he has heard everything on that score — he frankly was a bit too per-occupied with the stunning charts and his embarrassment over a mistaken treatment recommendation. As I consider myself well now, it was important for me to close the loop with the physicians who had helped in the beginning with the surgery and original diagnosis — I felt I needed to stay positive about them and help them help others in the future — versus calling their patients up who decided on a different direction and fostering fear, uncertainty and doubt. 

I attribute my healing to God’s good grace – and am very thankful for the work of Budwig and others that provide us with the insight that we need to support our health and healing. In my view, I do believe Dr Bernie Segal’s proposition – there are no incurable diseases – only incurable people. It takes a holistic approach ( I did Budwig, spiritual exercises, physical exercises, and worked on all my relationships with my family and friends and colleagues). 

When healing comes, I have realized that it not only heals the body — many other aspects of one’s life are healed as well. As for continuing the Budwig diet, I’m all in. We all love the approach, and I actually love to cook now. Have come up with sorts of new recipes for soups, FOCC cream, salads, etc. Only problem now is that diet has caused me to gain a few pounds, so working on getting the right balance between exercise and the program so that I don’t gain any more weight.
