In this particular situation what we needed to look at was the method of radiation. What they were using was a patient on their back so that the linear machine could do the radiation with the face locked in place onto the table. Because of laryngeal or pharyngeal and oropharyngeal cancers and the size of the tumor on my brother’s throat has now encompassed 100% of the oral cavity allowing him only to breathe through his nose. What I purported was a block that they use for CT scan face down to allow the weight of the tongue to clear the throat so that my brother could breathe while he was receiving radiation therapy. When it was first suggested it was knocked back because it was a change in procedure, there was no options.
In the last two weeks I gave them two options, brachytherapy if the tumour was small enough or the other option was face down with a CT block to allow aspiration. On Friday the method was tried and the technique was approved by the Registrar Oncologist at the Royal Adelaide Hospital who also works for Health SA, the Radiologist who works for Health SA and also the attending oncologist at the hospital my brother is at, the Lyall McEwan Hospital. So in one sense, one battle won for my brother, in another way, another battle won to be able to give oncologists a new way of approaching their technique and method rather than following the book. Lot of hard work but this time around it was worth it for my brother and also for the 60,000 plus suffers who will be diagnosed with oropharyngeal cancers in Australia alone. Around the world it will effect and estimated 657,000 will be diagnosed with oropharyngeal cancers, 330,000 will not survive. That’s around 50% survival rate and I wasn’t going to let that happen when I am told there are options. There Are ALWAYS Options, you just need to ask what they are.

What about nutritional supplementation?
One of the most important things about looking after your health is making sure you are getting the right stuff to help the body do it’s work and do it properly and that means all bits and pieces on the inside working properly. Sometimes when we do fall down with health we revert to pharmaceuticals but what if the body was healthy, really healthy that you very rarely became ill. Imagine that! When you do go through a disease of any kind it is nutrition that you should look at first before anything. You’ve heard of the paradym “You are what you eat?” It is true! More often than we are blinded to it or we have never been taught about it but nutrition is the core to healthy body and I mean nutrition that actually work. Where do you find this in our modern day and age? Nowhere! The foods we now eat is filled with chemicals and since the increase of pre packaged food around the world so to came the growth of diseases.
One of the most important things I found out years ago was that nutrition was at the core of many diseases but I did not realise how many of them were so easy to help with with better education on nutrition. Looking at the 29 people I currently work with in Australia most have had problems with health and turned to alternatives to help them get health and life back together. The diseases among our group is Cancer, Diabetes Type I and II, Arthritis, Dementia, Alzheimer’s, PCOS, MTHFR, Anxiety, Bipolar, PTSD, cardiovascular issues and all of them back on track to getting health and life on track in just one year. Around the world we are building an army of people dedicated to nothing but you health, your well being and your future. Which company do you know can you say that about?
