southerncross31 is on a distinguished road
My uncle had a very advanced case of melanoma, he was given a 2-3 month lifespan by the doctors. They said there was nothing they could do for him. His sister and wife immediately started him on a strict macrobiotic diet and his symptoms began to abate. That was 25 years ago! He has maintained the diet and has had no further issues with his health. He is now almost 66 and leads avery active lifestyle. He lives on the beach in Maine, sails, swims in the ocean for HOURS at a time. He spends lots of time outside all year long. He has hiked every peak in the USA (except Alaska) over 10,000 feet. He has hiked many higher peaks as well, in places like Switzerland, New Zealand and beyond. Check out the Kushi institute in Boston, MA for more on the Macrobiotic diet. Positive thoughts and just knowing you will be fine are also crucial. Sailing has got to be a great way to heal ....it sure works for me!
