How I Beat Cancer Naturally

How I Beat Cancer Naturally

Rick Lamothe of Calgary, Alberta (Canada) beat TWO cancers naturally! This is his story, as featured in Health News magazine issue #72.
I had been struggling with some kind of “skin rash” for about 5 years; it looked like eczema. After years of trying different creams, and blaming the chemicals in my hot tub, my doctor delivered the dreaded “C word.” It was December 2010 when a biopsy proved I had “mycosis fungoides” (MF), a very rare, white t-cell cancer that manifests itself on the skin. Ultimately, I was told that there was no cure for MF and that I would have to live with this cancer for the rest of my life. As if dealing with cancer was not enough, I was also going through the greatest challenge in my ministry career. I had been a church-planting pastor for the previous 14 years and seen God do a lot of great things. But now, for many reasons, it seemed everything was falling apart in my life. My Spiritual, Physical, Intellectual, Relational and Emotional health were a collective mess. My “S.P.I.R.E.” was falling apart! So, I decided to resign from my church; not a week later, I got another C-word, this time from my urologist. It was prostate cancer. The urologist recommended a radical prostatectomy (removal of the prostate entirely). But knowing the potential side effects of prostate surgery, I thought to myself, “I’m too young to deal with those things.” About this time, a friend of mine called me to tell me I should meet with one of his friends who had breast cancer and decided to fight it the natural way. “Oh no,” I thought, “I’m not becoming one of those vegetarian/vegans. How can that help?” Despite my preconceived notions, I met with her. She told me that she went to the Hippocrates Institute in Florida to detox and learn the vegan way of living and eating. She said, “Talk to a few people around here who have done similar radical things. Better yet, try the ‘Christian version’ of it, called Hallelujah Acres!” She gave me a list of people to call including a farmer. He had prostate cancer 20 years earlier and defeated it the natural way, by mainly eating a raw, living vegetable diet. He told me to make my body as alkaline as possible because cancer cells thrive on an acidic diet. So, I went organic and started eating mainly salads overnight. But something was still missing! I remembered what my friend with breast cancer had told me about Hallelujah Acres. I knew a little bit about it, but I wanted to go in person and get to know how it all worked. So, in October 2011, I jumped on my motorcycle and made the long trek from Ottawa, Ontario to the Hallelujah Diet Health Retreat at Lake Luke, North Carolina. I had never eaten as well as I did during my week at the Lifestyle Center — who would have thought that food prep and eating this way could be so much fun? I was very excited about the food and packed my motorcycle trailer with every gadget I needed to continue my new diet when I got home. About 2 months into my new diet, I went for more PSA testing. To my greatest delight, and to my urologist’s great surprise, my PSA went down faster in 2 months than it went up in 3 years. My doctor could not explain why! He said that maybe I was one of the lucky ones who would be cured without surgery — but I knew better. Encouraged by my test results, I kept going. My wife was surprised by my willpower and self-discipline, but I was truly enjoying The Hallelujah Diet! By Christmas, I had lost nearly 50 pounds and felt like I was back in my 20s. Then I went for a series of new medical tests because — more good news — the Lord was moving us across Canada to Calgary, Alberta to work with Samaritan’s Purse/Operation Christmas Child. I wanted to get some final testing to prove that my last positive results were not a coincidence! When I walked in to see my family doctor, she had the biggest smile! She said all my numbers were amazing. No more cholesterol problems (I had been on medication for 3 years). My blood pressure was back to normal, too. But the best news was that my PSA had gone down to the point that I didn’t need to worry about whether I had prostate cancer! I knew I was on the right track and that God was healing my body — He just needed me to cooperate with my diet! I can’t explain how really wonderful I feel. Through my cooperation with God’s original diet, He has healed me of two cancers, I’ve lost 50 pounds, and I feel great in my new pant size! This journey has helped me in every way - Spiritual, Physical, Intellectual, Relational and Emotional (SPIRE). In fact, I now teach men about The Hallelujah Diet as part of my inSPIRE Men’s Journey. Please, don’t wait for the C word from your doctor — investigate The Hallelujah Diet now! Spend a week at a Hallelujah Diet Health Retreat! Become a carrot juicing, vegetable nut like I have become! Give The Hallelujah Diet a try; you’ll feel better, look better, and make your SPIRE an inspiration to others!
