When Theresa DiNallo was diagnosed with breast cancer, her world was turned upside down. Like most women who are diagnosed with the deadly illness, life changes drastically. According to BreastCancer.org, 12% of all women will develop breast cancer. 246,660 new cases are expected this year alone. Breast cancer is serious business to those diagnosed with it as well as a profitable business to pharmaceutical companies.
“After completing a mammogram, they called me and put it very delicately, saying they think there is a mass in a certain area,” DiNallo told news-herald.com. “That’s when I immediately got scared and I remember being petrified the whole time.”
Theresa was diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma. Theresa was immediately confronted with all the generic options, such as chemotherapy, she, however, chose to be more forward-thinking and started investigating. One of her first findings was that poor nutrition and alcohol use highly increased cancer risks. She also noted that fat-free, sugar-free and low-fat diet items were laden with dangerous chemicals. Of course, the medical world gave her the “there is no definite cause” company line.
Medical Oncologist Dr. Maria Espinosa of the Lake Health University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center said there are numerous elements that increase cancer risks, including genetics and lifestyle factors. However there is no definite cause of cancer, she said.
“The most common gene linked to cancer is the BRCA gene,” Espinosa said.
This is common practice when it comes to cancer. Doctors simply give those diagnosed with cancer the company line. It is easier just to say cancer is random or not preventable than it is risk losing the comforts of the financial spoils that come with “treating” it. Theresa remained vigilant and eventually purchased the book, “Cancer: Step Outside the Box” by Ty Bollinger. Theresa’s breast surgeon, however, was not convinced her book held any legitimacy.
“She said, ‘We have to do the lumpectomy but we don’t know if it traveled to your lymph nodes until after we do the surgery so we will have to remove a lymph node or two to see if is affected, then more than likely you will need radiation, possibly chemo depending on what comes out of the results, but at a minimum you will need Tamaxifen and then for prevention, you may want to consider a mastectomy or double mastectomy’,”DiNallo said. “So, my options were to mutilate my body, then poison it.”
After Theresa had read the book, she lectured the breast surgeon.
“It is pitiful what you’re doing to women. Why aren’t you educating them on the importance of iodine,selenium, magnesium levels, and their vitamin B levels and cutting out sugar because sugar is feeding their cancer?”
Theresa next cut out all sugar, dairy, flour, packaged foods and canned foods. She began juicing fruits and vegetables. She also avoided animal fats. She also took on the help of a homeopathic physician. She stopped using microwaves. She stopped holding cell phones to her ear. She said no to going through airport security metal detectors. She dumped Teflon cooking pans.
The results? Her white and red blood cells were improved drastically. She continues to see improvements every six months. Theresa’s amazing recovery led her to start a group called the Cancer Resource Coalition; you can find more information here ( clevecc.org.). Theresa now genuinely wants to help others, not profit off of them. She posted the following video on her Youtube page called Rethink Cancer.
Theresa is just one story, there are so many other examples of people beating cancer using alternative therapy. I’m not here to tell you what to do if you are ever diagnosed with such a scary and tragic illness, I am however telling you that you should do as much reading as possible. Environment stimulants certainly contribute to cancer. Cell phones, microwaves, chemicals in foods, high fructose loads, have all been linked to cancer through various studies. But pharmaceutical companies block any roads for larger, more involved studies because that could compromise their position in the chemotherapy vertical. Do your research, folks, the information is out there. You just have to open your minds.
