Prayer and Proper Nutrition Cured My Husband of Cancer


Please know that this article is not a judgment on those who choose chemo and radiation. If anything, it shows how proper nutrition and prayer is so powerful – even to the point of clearing cancer out of a person’s body! There are studies which show that people who change their diets (the article will explain) while still getting the convention treatment for cancer do far better than those who do not make any changes in their diet. This is the route that my husband chose, and here is his story…….

In April of last year, my husband noticed that his lymph nodes on his neck were enlarged. The right one was extremely large. We made an appointment with our GP. He examined my husband and wrote up a referral to an Ear Nose and Throat specialist.

The ENT scoped my husband. Scoping is placing a tube through the patient’s nose into the throat to look for anything suspicious. The doctor told us that he saw something which looked odd. He said that a biopsy would need to be done on my husband’s voice box.
We then went to an ENT who specialized in throat cancers at John Hopkins Hospital. He also scoped my husband and showed us on a large screen a spot which he said looked like cancer. He also said that it looked like stage 4 cancer because it had spread to the lymph nodes. He set my husband up for a biopsy.

The day came for the biopsy, and after the specimen was sent to the lab, the doctor told us that Tim had Squamous Cell Carcinoma. Tim had none of the symptoms that the doctor asked him about — pain in the ears and pain swallowing. This doctor made an appointment at the center for cancer at Johns Hopkins.


After Tim and I were ushered into a room at the cancer center, he was placed in a chair. Then a group of many doctors came into the room. One doctor scoped Tim again, and they talked amongst themselves about a suspicious spot on his larynx (voice box). They talked over us, not including us in the conversation. They spoke of surgery, chemotherapy and radiation.

The head oncologist said that Tim needed a radical surgery to remove his voice box. He said that this would leave a hole in his neck, and that he would have to learn how to swallow again. He also would have to learn how to talk with an electronic device implanted into his neck. They said that Tim would probably be in the hospital for over a month, and that after this, he would go through many months of chemotherapy and radiation.

They said that Tim would have burns over most of his face and scalp. And then they left. We waited, because no one said that we were done. Finally a doctor saw us in the room and asked why we were still there. He said that we would hear from them about the scheduling of the surgery. We left.

On the way home we talked about getting a second opinion. We were both in shock at what had been told to us by the oncologists. These doctors never gave us options, or talked to us as to whether we wanted to go through these invasive procedures along with chemo and radiation.

Two days later, we were notified that they had scheduled surgery that was to be less than a week away. We have many Christian friends on Facebook and told them what was happening, and we asked for much prayer. That’s when we were told by a few of our friends that there were alternatives with natural nutritional treatment. At first we were very skeptical, but then began to read the testimonies of people who had been cured by drastically changing their diet and taking certain supplements.

The first diet we came across was called the Ketogenic diet for cancer. Whenever I do research for an article, I always vet everything on credible websites. The Ketogenic Diet kept coming up as an amazing treatment for many kinds of cancer. There is not enough room in this piece to spell out the entire Ketogenic diet for cancer, but if you look this up online, you will find much documentation and testimonies. Here is an excerpt about why the Ketogenic diet is so effective against cancer cells.


“To some, a Ketogenic diet amounts to nothing less than a drug-free cancer treatment. The diet calls for eliminating carbohydrates, replacing them with healthy fats and protein.

The premise is that since cancer cells need glucose to thrive, and carbohydrates turn into glucose in your body, then cutting out carbs literally starves the cancer cells.

This type of diet, in which you replace carbs with moderate amounts of high quality protein and high amounts of beneficial fat, is what I recommend for everyone, whether you have cancer or not. It’s simply a diet that will help optimize your weight and health overall, as eating this way will help you convert from carb burning mode to fat burning.” [1]

We immediately went on this diet. I went on it with Tim – mostly out of compassion. The first thing we saw was No Sugar! We wondered if we could do this, but we were determined. We saw that we needed to eat good omega 3 fats, very low carbs (no simple carbs) and lots of fruits, vegetables and nuts. We could eat salmon and chicken and lamb and some other meats – good healthy protein.

We got a notice from the hospital that Tim needed a PET scan to see if the cancer had spread. We had already been on the Ketogenic diet for over a week. We had consumed no sugar, and were following the diet to the letter. We found out that cancer cells thrive on sugar. Of course, there is glucose found naturally in the body, but consuming refined sugar just feeds the cancer cells.

We went to the hospital for Tim’s PET scan, and when he finally came out, he told me that they insisted that he drink two full glasses of glucose! I was so upset. I went to the nurses station and asked why Tim had been asked to drink so much glucose. The nurse said “That is how the cancer cells light up – because of the glucose.” I told her that he had been on a sugar free diet up to that day. She could tell I was not happy!

The results of the PET scan were good. No cancer had spread in Tim’s body other than the lymph nodes, but we already knew that.


We went to an Oncology office in our town for a second opinion. The doctor had received all of Tim’s records from Johns Hopkins. We sat down at his desk, and he proceeded to tell us that he was shocked that Hopkins wanted to take such aggressive actions against Tim’s cancer. He showed us a chart which had exactly what Tim had on it, which had been prepared by many of the leading oncology centers in the U.S. It showed what they concurred would be the best protocol for Tim.

It said that the first option would be light chemo and radiation – no surgery. Second would be stronger chemo and radiation. Third would be surgery if the first and second failed. He set us up to see the radiation specialist in his office.

We came into the radiation doctor’s office and a young doctor met us first. He explained about the procedure. In a while, the head doctor came out and talked more about the radiation. Then we all went into another room for Tim to be scoped once again. I was standing behind the doctors, trying to see the screen. I heard the head doctor say “It must be so small.” They kept looking. Finally, they said that we should go back to the other office.

By this time we had been on the Ketogenic diet for at least three weeks. I asked the doctor if I could ask some questions. He told me that I could when he was finished. I told him about the Ketogenic diet and the other supplements that Tim was taking. He rolled his eyes and asked exactly what the Ketogenic diet was about. I told him first – no sugar. He rolled his eyes again. I asked if it was not true that cancer cells feed off of sugar. He said that was ridiculous.

This doctor also did not take the head oncologist’s suggestion of “light chemo” but instead insisted on heavy chemo. He told Tim that he was going to be very sick. His words were “We are really going to really beat you up!” That was not very comforting.

He left the room and we were there with the young doctor we had first seen. Tim said to him “We are going home to pray about all of this.” This doctor’s face lit up and he said “Yes! You must pray.” I asked him about what they had seen while scoping Tim. He told me that they could not find anything. We were shocked, but in a good way! Then he said “Keep doing what you are doing.”


I wrote an article months ago about how cancer is big business for the pharmaceutical companies. They make up to 85% of their profit off of chemo drugs! Why would they want a cure? Especially a cure which they could not patent. Nutritional treatment? “Bah humbug!” they say.

Did you know that oncologists and cancer centers are paid thousands of dollars by the Pharmaceutical companies? You can actually check to see if your doctor is being paid by them and how much:

Click on this link and put in your hospital, clinic or doctors’ name, and you will be able to see how much money they are receiving and from which big Pharma company:

There have been numerous reports of holistic doctors who have had success in treating cancer with nutrition, and many of them have been found dead – the report stating that the deaths were probably suicide. I think not.


There is a website called Chrisbeatcancer. He gives the statistics of the success rate of 5 year survival using chemo and radiation. It will shock you.

We want you to know that today, Tim’s lymph nodes are completely flat, and the last oncologist said that there is no mass on his voice box!


1.Ketogenic Diet for cancer (you will find SO much info online about this.) No refined sugar!

2. Keeping the body slightly alkaline and not acidic. (there are foods which are alkaline forming and others which are acidic forming. You can look this up too. A slightly alkaline system keeps a healthy body. An acidic system is a
breeding ground for cancer and other diseases. Buy testing strips at Amazon – they are cheap.

We’ve all heard “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” Did you know that the apple is the top fruit which makes our bodies alkaline? So it wasn’t just a silly saying!

3. Sacred Frankincense Oil (food grade) a few drops under the tongue twice a day and a drop or two rubbed directly on the lymph nodes. . We buy ours from Isn’t it amazing that the Magi brought Frankincense to the baby Jesus?!

4. Juicing with beets, carrots and apples (all organic if possible)

5. We eat healthy meals every day and usually have a big salad each day.

6. No cow’s milk. Replace this with unsweetened Coconut milk or Almond milk. Cow’s milk produces an abundance of mucus in the body which is very unhealthy.


The Ketogenic diet is a rapid weight loss diet, so be careful! Make sure that if you go under a healthy weight that you add healthy complex carbs to your diet. We get weighed every few days.

Don’t forget that all of this comes from the Lord, and Prayer is an essential part of this diet!

May the Lord use this article to help so many who trust doctors implicitly, and have never tried a nutritionally based diet to treat their cancer. Even if you are on chemotherapy now, we are reading that the people who are on the Ketogenic diet and keep their system more alkaline, and take Frankincense Oil, do better than other patients on chemo.

We would like to thank all the people who provided us with this vital information and all the intercessory prayer that went up for Tim.

Mostly, we want to give our thanks to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!
