This is quite amazing:

Elephants attack in Orissa after exactly one year of persecutions
Fr. Sunil De Silva, Archdiocese of Colombo, 09.12.2009
In July 2008 a severe persecution of Christians broke out in the Indian state of Orissa. A 22 year old nun was burnt to death when angry mobs burnt down an orphanage in Khuntpali village in Barhgarh district, another nun was gang raped in Kandhamal, mobs attacked churches, torched vehicles, houses of Christians were destroyed, and Fr. Thomas Chellen, director of the pastoral center that was destroyed with a bomb, had a narrow escape after a Hindu mob nearly set him on fire. The end result saw more than 500 Christians murdered, and thousands of others injured and homeless after their houses were reduced to ashes. (more…)

I knew it! Finally I see it in black and white: In the article below, Dr. Maoshing Ni gives more evidence that sugar is a major culprit in the development of breast cancer: ” Another study discovered that rats fed a high-sugar diet had a substantially elevated rate of breast cancer when compared to rats on a regular diet.
I have felt so much healthier since I kicked the sugar habit! It isn’t exactly a subtle difference, but of course eliminating sugar wasn’t the only change I made, so I haven’t followed the usual scientific method in making this claim, but there’s a lot of evidence pointing to sugar as a major factor in the development of many health problems, including cancer.

Raw Honey and Turmeric to the Rescue! August 12, 2009

Thought  you might be interested–honey and turmeric seemed to work just fine to shrink my boil and it’s now the size of a fading pimple–no swelling, no redness, no pain or tenderness! It took about a day and a half. I used raw, unfiltered, non-heat-treated mountain honey from Sapa, Vietnam mixed with powdered turmeric to make a paste and applied it to the boil. I covered the goo with a tiny bit of tissue to keep from accidentally touching anything to the potently colorful mixture and thereby reducing the chances of staining clothes, etc. The two nights I used the paste, I also covered the area (on my nose!) with a band-aid to avoid disturbing it or messing up my linens while I slept.

Prayer Heals July 27, 2009

This is a wonderful article from Reader’s Digest that encourages faith in the power of prayer for healing. It works, so why don’t we do more of it? Read this and try more of it yourself. It just takes a bit of faith (as little as “a grain of mustard seed”) to do miracles. With the world in the mess it’s in, I’m sure we’ll be hearing more testimonies of miraculous healings. Let’s help get that ball rolling! There are absolutely NO negative side-effects!
Healing Prayer
By James R. Yates, Reader’s Digest, March 1996.
Does prayer heal? Scientists are discovering what believers have always known. It was during residency training at Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas, Texas, when I had my first patient with terminal cancer in both lungs. (more…)

Many of my friends and family replied with relief and support to my announcement that I would be admitted for surgery and my request for prayer, so, of course I was very encouraged and entered the hospital without fear and full of faith. I had that peace of mind that comes only when we’re trusting Jesus completely. I knew I was in His hands and nothing would happen without His allowing it for my good somehow, because He loves me. Long ago I chose Him as my Master, my Anchor and my Friend, and I trust Him completely—as my Husband—even until death. (Death is not the end anyway–the best is yet to come! it’s only a door to the beginning of a truly Heavenly life! So what is there to fear?) (more…)

Dear L,

Thank you so much for your very helpful response to my news. Since I’ve continued with my usual schedule, what time I have left I often use for research and study. Because of my strong faith in Jesus, I don’t worry about the outcome, but have focused on doing all I can to get my body up to optimum health, so it can destroy this invader. So far, through trial and error and stumbling around a whole lot, I’m nearing the point of settling into a regimen I’m comfortable with–for now, anyway.

We’ve had a good juicer for a year and a half–since J’s first juice fast in years, last February. We often have carrot juice, but were mainly intent then on getting all the antioxidants we could, not knowing anything about food combining and my cancer. We’d heard about not eating fruit after meals, but hadn’t strictly adhered to the principle. (more…)

Before I continue with my challenge of how to adjust my diet to defeat the cancer, I thought I’d include some of the communications I sent to my family and friends. It’s personal, but summarizes how I was feeling and thinking at the time. Here’s the first letter written when I first knew I had cancer.

Tips on How to Reduce Sugar Intake April 4, 2009

(I hope you aren’t terribly bored by this topic already, but hopefully, this will be my last post on the subject–at least for now.)

First you have to believe it’s important to reduce your sugar intake. Then the information and tips below will be able to have some effect. I personally wanted to reduce my sugar intake long before I knew I had cancer. I knew I had a sweet tooth and ample evidence in my mouth in the form of fillings, extractions and crowns to prove it! I was a sweets addict from a very early age—no fault of my parents! They tried to raise me right!

For the last, maybe 20 years we have not had white sugar in the house and over the last couple of years (more…)
