Round two in Switzerland

Me and my Mama :)

Hello from this beautiful, yet rainy,  greenery in Switzerland. Alot different from the snowy hills and mountains from my last stay in February. Its round two at the Paracelsus Klinic!!! For those of you that dont know from my previous posts, the klinik offers biological treatments for diseases from cancer, chronic fatigue, MS, heart conditions to general detoxing. My mom and I embarked here on our journey on Friday and arrived on Saturday. Boy, I forgot how intense it is to be here. Dont get me wrong I am happy to be  here but you forget how taxing it is both emotionally and physically. So far I had a busy couple of days of all the same treatments as last time......oxygen, vitamin infusions, intravenous oxygen, magnetic field treatment, local hyperthermia, and all the testing. The testing included comprehensive blood work, a thermography, heavy metal testing, tumor marker evaluation (i.e how fast are the tumors growing and likelihood for them to mestasize), food sensitivity, darkfield (live blood analysis) and a bunch of other tests. So far the thermography came back and shows a slight improvement from last time. It still shows that lymphatic system is sluggish but other areas that were compromised are better. Im awaiting the other results. 

intravenous o2 and infusion

Out of no where I began having this horrid tooth pain which went from 0 to 1000 overnight. It winds up that I have an abcess and have to have my tooth extracted. I asked if it was a conicidence that this tooth was fine and then strated up as soon as I came back for treatment. My Dr. explained that theoretically it could be from all the treatments I was getting in combination with my weak immune system. Due to having an infection in my sinuses and my mouth, I have to wait till next week to have the tooth extracted to give the infection time to clear. If not, the infection will have risk to effect my bone and go into my blood. The dentists here also practice biologically and they do things MUCH differently then the states. This would normally be considered a root canal but since they think those are toxic and extremely harmful to the body systemically, they remove the tooth, and the dead root and then will replace in 6 months or so once the bone heals.  Sounds fun huh? So for now I have to tolerate the pain and await my extraction on Tuesday of next week. 

I also have been having plenty of visits with my doctors here, Dr. Rau and Dr. Pleus. Both doctors are great, each offering a different angle yet coninciding with one another. Dr. Rau injects me with fresh cell which is basically to boost my immune system and regenerate areas that need some loving. It is similar to stem cell transplant but very different at the same time. It creeped me out at first, being that it is fresh cells from organic livestock, but after last visit I felt a big difference and feels it has helped me a great deal. 

Dr. Rau also injects the tumor in my armpit and the craziest thing happened!!! He went to inject it with his cocktail of mistletoe and low dose chemo and in doing so a bunch of blood began to come out. He sucked out alot of blood from the lump and it became smaller before his eyes. This means that the tumor was filled with blood which according to Dr. Rau means that the cancer was breaking up. Dr. Rau explained that once internal tumors begin to hemorrhage it is a sign that they are breaking up and basically dissipating. Dr. Rau wanted to run the blood that he drained out to  test for cancer cells but due to it the syringe first having the medicinal cocktail in it the test would have not been accurate.  Its hard to know whats going on regarding the tumor in my armpit as it looks like i have a huge welt under there and it is SUPER swollen from the injection. The blood continued draining leaving lots of blood under my skin ("red and blue"). I will continue to get daily injections into the tumor and once the swelling begins to calm down we will see more of whats going on. However, according to Dr. Rau he says its looking good and he thinks that it is dying.  Lets pray that he is right!!!

There is much more to write but for now that is enough. I will update more as results from all my tests return and as the treatments progress. Im happy to be here and am trying to use this time to figure out how I will make all those changes necessary in my life to enjoy and live without being so focused on the cancer life. Yes, as I already mentioned all that I do is crucial in my healing but its time that I live and have fun. Im learning to tackle that much needed balance and I WILL suceeed. Im taking this time to concentrate on focusing on my body and getting better so I could go home and be with Mike and our family and friends to have an awesome summer.

LoVe, PeaCe, and StRenGth,
