After having a mastectomy for breast cancer, a friend of mine loaned me David Fromm's Cancer Battle Plan book. I read it during my recovery and found it to be a bit overwhelming in its scope and in the possibilities of things that can cause cancer in our bodies. However, I set the book aside and continued to sort through some of what I had read. At my friend's recommendation, I made an appointment with David Fromm. In the meantime, I began taking tamoxifen as my oncologist's recommended prevenative care treatment plan. I was leary about taking it. For the first week I was fine. Then I began to have serious side effects: hormones completely wacked out, a low blood sugar attack, and also tightening around the chest and heart area. I could barely think. I decided to go off the tamoxifen and I made an appointment with my oncologist. Her response was that all these side effects were normal. She reminded me of the increased risk of recurrence if I did not take tamoxifen. I did not feel as though she wanted to consider or address my concerns about what may have caused the cancer in my body in the first place. When I had my appointment with David Fromm, and he talked about the breast cancer pattern, what he said made so much sense to me. My mother and aunt had survived thyroid cancer, and I had three sisters with thyroid issues. Hearing that my thyroid was starving, that my adrenal glands needed strengthening, and that my digestive system also needed help: all of these things that he said were underlying causes of breast cancer matched my areas of concern. I felt as though I had met someone who was interested and able to work with the underlying causes of cancer instead of just recommending a drug as a bandaid. I have taken some of David Fromm's supplements for a month now and I am pleased with the results. People tell me that I look very healthy. I seem to be digesting my food better. I no longer have to eat every couple of hours in order to feel full or to keep from getting shakey. I feel as though I am only at the beginning of the journey in learning how to better care for my body. But I do not feel alone in that journey. I am thankful to Health Quarters Ministry for the help and the hope that they provide.
