Just a few hours after being given a death sentence with the diagnosis stage 4 Uterine Leiomyosarcoma by the Netherlands Cancer Institute, Antoni van Leeuwenhoek, I stopped crying long enough to call my aunt who is an orthomolecular therapist and to ask for help. The very next day I had a consult with Dr. Trossèl of the Preventive Medical Centre in Rotterdam a centre for complementary medicine and treatments. Dr. Trossèl encouraged me to drop everything and become an expert in my disease.
This advice resonated and felt extremely right. Becoming an expert has given me access to information that could benefit you or others.
I took control of the only thing I could control: the way I nourish my body, mind and soul. Taming the cancer to win precious time. I flipped the switch and transformed my life. There was no time to waste.
This rare disease makes you feel helpless and powerless but, there are many ways to empower yourself. Do what suits you and use both your emotion, intuition and ratio to filter all the advice that’ll be thrown your way. In the end you always know what’s best for you. I embarked on an eclectic path.
