Trevor Smith, 52 years old at the time, was diagnosed with bladder cancer stage T2a – the tumor has grown into the inner half of the muscle layer. His prognosis as told by mainstream doctors was very poor. He was told that he needed all three conventional cancer treatments: chemotherapy, radiation and surgery to remove his prostate, bladder and lymph nodes.
What the doctors did not tell him is that his life expectancy after the surgery was only 2 to 2.5 years (it was said to be up to 2 years if he refused treatment). His treatment would also cause him to be incontinent for up to a year and impotent, writes his wife Carol Smith.
Cure Your Own Cancer
“Fear is a terrible thing, and fear is ripe when we hear the word Cancer,” writesCarol, “Our belief system does not have to be locked. We can open up our minds to think for ourselves, inform ourselves and learn to not just accept our ‘fate.’”
When Trevor and Carol told the oncologist and urologist that they wanted to research alternative treatments before making a decision, the doctors were rushing them and already had a surgery date scheduled, but Carol knew they needed time to make a decision.
She found a naturopathic doctor to help them each step of the way
Monitoring blood tests and helping to correctly incorporate proper diet, supplements and vitamins into his treatment plan. Trevor continued to also monitor his health with conventional tests such as MRIs to make sure the natural treatments were working.
When it came to supplements, Carol first found Essiac tea, an herbal treatment made from Burdock Root, Slippery Elm Inner Bark, Sheep Sorrel and Indian Rhubarb Root, sometimes called an “ancient Canadian Ojibway Indian herbal formula.”
Second, Trevor had to greatly change his whole diet. He completely eliminated dairy, sugar, white flour and white potatoes, and all processed food. His diet became mostly plant-based with very little chicken and fish. He also started taking big doses of vitamins C, D3, B17 and K2, as well as a detoxification supplement and DHEA (a hormone that comes from the adrenal gland).
And finally, after watching the movie “Run from the Cure,” a documentary about medicinal hemp oil, Carol added cannabis oil to Trevor’s treatment.
“It felt like I was going into the unknown but the cannabis oil changed things for the better,” said Trevor according to Derby Telegraph, “When doctors told me I had gone into remission, I was lost for words.”
At the time of writing her post (August 2014), Carol’s husband was cancer free and still had his bladder 19 months after the original diagnosis.
“[It] is shocking that we are led to believe that there is no cure for Cancer; our story is living proof there is another way, and I am now consumed with only getting the word out that Cancer does not need to mean death,” writes Carol.
Even though he did use (a far less invasive and less common) type of laser surgery on his tumors, he refused radical surgery that would have removed his bladder and prostate, and got cancer-free with natural and alternative means instead of chemotherapy. He also used a type of treatment called BCG, which inserts a virus into the bladder through a catheter in hopes of killing off any remaining cancer cells.
Smith took control of his health
Of course, if Smith hadn’t taken control of his own health, his story might have ended up far differently, especially due to the many harsh side effects of radiation treatment. His situation is still a cautionary tale not to blindly accept every treatment doctors prescribe without weighing all of your options first.
Carol wrote the whole story of Trevor’s and hers journey to recovery in the book ‘Taking Control’ (She wrote the book under pseudonym Alyssia Sade and called her husband Perry).
Studies Done on Cannabis Oil
There has been mounting evidence that tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in cannabis and other compounds (cannabinoids) are able to induce death of cancer cells.
- The British Journal of Cancer found in 2006 that THC and other cannabinoids inhibit tumor growth.
- A 2006 clinical trial published in British Journal of Pharmacology discovered that THC helped reduce the spread of tumor cells in every case.
- Harvard scientists also reported that THC reduces the spreading of cancer.
- A report Mini-Reviews in Medicinal Chemistry called cannabinoids “a new class of anticancer drugs that retard cancer growth, inhibit angiogenesis and the metastatic spreading of cancer cells.”
Breakfast, blood sugar, & inflammation
Recent research has shown that Inflammation is responsible for 7 out of 10 Deaths in the United States. But it doesn’t have to be the same way for you.
In fact, in a fairly short amount of time, you could start to experience better sleep…less stomach issues…more energy and stamina…less muscle and joint pain…a drop in weight…lower stress levels…and much, much more!

Take the quiz above and see if you got the correct answer!
In April, 2009, researchers stunned the medical community when they reported chronic inflammation as the root cause of several major diseases.
See, every year 610,000 people in the U.S. die of heart disease. Cancer claims another 584,000...stroke 130,000...Alzheimer's disease nearly 85,000 — and the list goes on.
Truth is, we now know... chronic inflammation is responsible for 7 out of the top 10 leading causes of death in the United States! Hundreds of studies and scientific reviews prove it.
Fortunately, newer research shows you can prevent-even reverse-most major diseases by "turning off" inflammation. And in our new book, we show you how to do just that.
If you or a loved one is suffering from a debilitating condition-and you"re not sure what the culprit is-now's the time to find out...while you can still do something about it!
