On January 19, 1999, I received lab test results that confirmed my deepest fear. My Breast Cancer
had returned to several spots on my spine. My back was in constant pain and I required several prescription pain pills to make it through the day. A blood test with a Breast Cancer
marker CA27-29 was 53. Anything above the number 35 was above normal. My oncology team at The University of Michigan Medical Center recommended radiation and Tamoxofin. My back was radiated for several weeks in February. I went on an oral daily dose of Tamoxofin. Chemotherapy is not as effective when there is cancer in the bone.
Two years ago, I endured 9 months of high dose chemo, a mastectomy, and 4 weeks of radiation to my chest wall where there was the original cancer. There was no lymph node involvement, so I thought there would be no recurrence.
In April of 1999, a MRI showed that the cancer had spread to new spots on my spine. A blood test measuring breast cancer tumor marker CA27-29 showed that it had risen to 214. My oncology team wanted to start me on high dose chemo. They stopped the Tamoxofin since it wasn't helping me at all. The future looked very bleak. I dreaded the thought of more chemo treatments.
For two years I have been seeing a NAET practitioner in Ann Arbor, Dr. Sue Anderson, and have cleared many allergies. Conventional medicine did not slow the cancer and the chemo and radiation treatments would impair my immune system. With Dr. Devi's guidance and Dr. Sue Anderson's help, I embraced NAET to clear my body of allergic reactions to cancer. Devi recommended diet changes. I ate fish, brown rice, raw vegetables and vegetable juices. I was advised to avoid meat, Sugar
and grains. According to NAET testing, I was allergic to my blood and my breast cancer. I was taught how to do self -NAET treatments. I spent 10 hours a dayself treating. (Self-treating acupressure points are given in page 58, in the book "Living Pain Free" by Devi Nambudripad and available from amazon.com or at the naet.website.) Another blood test drawn on May 4, 1999 showed my CA27-29 level to be at an all time high of 252. I was not too discouraged because my back pain was lessening and I was able to get off the prescription pain medication, even though my cancer marker raised in the blood. Dr. Devi's interpretation was: cancer cells are losing the fight with my body's cancer-fighting cells. My previously weakened immune system was boosted up with NAET to the highest level possible and now my immune system was well equipped to fight my worst enemy-my cancer!
My immune system was very low before I started NAET, that's why I wasn't responding with previous line of treatment. Dr. Devi thought, if I was treated with NAET and boosted up my immune system first, chemotherapy, radiation, tamoxofin, all could have helped my body to destroy the cancer. Having a strong immune system is the key to fight any autoimmune disorders like cancer. If you have no energy, how can you fight your enemy? I understand her theory and from my experience, I can see how true it is! I continued the diet and the intense self treatment schedule. I also saw Dr. Sue Anderson twice a week. The more allergies I cleared, the stronger my body felt. Every week, I went to the lab to draw my blood. The lab was kind enough to give me a small purple-top test tube with fresh blood to take home. I kept the tube in the refrigerator and self-treated holding the blood sample and my cancer sample (my cancer tissue from my previous surgery) for ten minutes every hour during the day. The following week a new blood marker test was drawn. My CA27-29 was 210. On May 18th, my CA27-29 level dropped to 178. The next week, my CA27-29 dropped to 152. On May 28th it had dropped to 144.
Pain was tolerable now and I was able to resume exercise. I am an artist. I wasn't able to do my art work for a long while now due to pain. In June I resumed my art (painting). It felt very good doing my normal things again! There was hope in my life.
According to Dr. Devi's suggestion, I started a herbal regime on May 18th with Tony Paytas, of Warren, Michigan. She thought, immune boosting herbs will help the body to maintain my immune system at high level and the cancer cells will never get active again. My tumor markers have dropped throughout the summer. My daily schedule still involves two hours of NAET self treating. My oncologist, Dr. Theodore Lawrence, M.D., Chief of Radiation Oncology at The University of Michigan Medical Center, is extremely pleased with my progress. During my last visit with him, he said with a smile: Roseann, whatever you are doing, its working. I am very happy with the progress. Continue whatever you are doing...don't stop it.
NAET offered me a way to get well. Thank you Dr. Devi!

May I request you to put this letter in the NARF newsletter? This is my letter describing how NAET helped me clear my body's reaction to stage 4 breast cancer. I know you don't like to talk about treating cancer with NAET since you said, you have not treated hundreds of cancer patients yet. Nobody has discovered 100% cure for cancer anyway. Any news is better than no news, especially if someone is stuck the way I was. If we have a positive result, I feel we need to share it with the rest of the world. May be one more person could benefit from such line of information. NARF newsletter is read by thousands. Someone among your readers might benefit from my story. It was wonderful to finally meet you last month. You have been a pivotal person in my quest to be healthy.
