“You are going to die!” That was the doctor’s statement when I stopped radiation treatments. I lost half my body weight in 2 weeks because the radiation destroyed my digestive system. Everything I tried to eat came back up. Cancer wasn’t killing me—the treatment was!
I was so weak that I needed help getting out of bed, brushing my teeth or sitting up. Many people were praying for my healing. Lying in bed, the thought came to me, “You need a nutritionist.” I didn’t know any nutritionists so I turned to the yellow pages. This is how I found Dr Madeline Permutt.
My daughter and a friend transported me to meet her. She didn’t rush or seem agitated by my lack of knowledge but answered my all my questions. Dr Permutt was patient, kind and more importantly, confidant she could help me. HELP is what I needed. She explained to me that her job was to help my body be the healthiest it could be, not to actually treat cancer.
Because I couldn’t eat, I knew I wouldn’t last much longer if things didn’t change. But change they did! Dr Permutt knew exactly how to help my body by giving me what I so desperately needed. The very first food she recommended I eat stayed down. My body’s reaction was, “Oh! That was good! Give me MORE!” After a few weeks I gained some weight and became strong enough to be mobile again.
I was able to return to work with a fresh mind and a strong body. My experience with this illness and with Dr Permutt convinced me to pursue a natural approach to healing. One year later I revisited the Oncology Department to let the doctor know I had not died but was alive and WELL! Many years have passed and the cancer has not returned.
