I was diagnosed with late stage ovarian cancer in January 2007. I was 62 at the time and otherwise healthy and active. My gynecological oncologist did ‘debulking’ surgery (removing as much of the cancer as possible), and I was put on chemotherapy for seven months. The cancer recurred in February of 2008. I was given various chemotherapy regimens for the next year and a half, but none of them of them were successful in stopping the spread of the disease. My doctor recommended that I go see Robert in April 2009. Robert was very clear that he did not treat disease, but he thought that by releasing energy blockages in my body and adjusting my core current I could benefit. At the time I had palpable inguinal lymph nodes on both sides of my pelvis that were painful when walking, constipation that had been present for the two years of chemotherapy, bloating, pain in my shoulders, neck and back above my kidneys, sinus problems and mental fuzziness.
After my first couple of visits, the constipation was corrected and has remained corrected even with the reintroduction of cancer drugs. He was able to draw pain from my lymph nodes and they have reduced in size. The pain in my back along the kidneys is gone at this time and the shoulder and neck pain has been reduced. The sinus pain is gone. I have dropped my ibuprofen use from 1800 mg/day to 200 at night to help me sleep. My mental concentration has returned and I am reading and retaining information again. I continue to exercise and my quality of life has improved immeasurably despite the continued spread of the cancer. I bike, ski, hike and walk. My doctor confirms that the tumor burden appears manageable for the moment although it remains volatile. I continue to see Robert on a regular basis. The immediate feeling of strength and wholeness is remarkable. Robert has encouraged my body and spirit to rise to meet the disease. For this I am ever grateful.
