First of all I want to thank everyone who responded to my call to help Gary and Fay win the war on cancer. If you have not yet read their story, stop by Fighting the Fight post and read about it. Also, if you are feeling generous, I am still taking monetary donations for them, as we still have the need for some kitchen gadgets and superfoods for them.
Last night I was floored when I received an e-mail from my lovely sister, who so generously lent her Blendtec Total Blender to Gary and Fay, while they waited on their Vitamixes to arrive. She was excited to get her blender back when Gary and Fay received not one, not two… wait for it… but THREE Vitamix 5200 Blenders!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Have you ever heard of such generosity?!
“Why three?” you might ask. If you read Gary and Fay’s story, you will find out about the work they do, rehabilitating individuals with various addictions. The Chairman of Vitamix thought it is only right to help these people get right nutrition to aid their recovery, while Gary and Fay are fighting for their lives. And for that I thank you, Vitamix–you make my heart swell with pride in human kindness.
I also received a communication from a company that is new to me, which makes wheatgrass juice supplements. Gary and Fay, thanks to Tribest, are already juicing on a daily basis, but there is always room for more concentrated nutrition in their diet, and wheatgrass is an amazing cancer fighter.
Ron Seibold of Pines Wheat Grass sent me an e-mail and offered to send me a sample of their product for testing, as well as send a 10 ounce Pines Wheat Grass powder and a glass of 250-tablet Pines Wheat Grass to Gary and Fay to help them on their healing journey. Both of the products are organic, and the coolest thing that I like about it, even before trying it myself, is the fact that they are stored in dark glass jars, as opposed to plastic. I am so touched by their generosity. Thank you, Pines Wheat Grass!
Now for the update.
The first Skype call with Gary and Fay lasted about 2 hours. I had to communicate to them a lot of information, yet not wanting to overwhelm them. It seems that they have a lot of people who wish them well, so they were inundated with a lot of information, much of which was confusing and often contradicting. There was some deprogramming that needed to be done, followed by reprogramming, so they would tune into the right things. Fortunately Gary and Fay were blessed to have a young lady with them, to help them along–a graduate from their program. She was visiting them from AZ and walked them through all the changes I suggested, during their first week. I cannot even begin to tell you what a blessing she was. She made it possible for Gary and Fay to still concentrate on their work, by preparing their meals, reading info I sent to them and feeding it to them in concise, digestible nuggets . She also kept me abreast of how Gary and Fay were doing on a daily basis–their routine, their mood, their diet and their well-being.
One of the things I quickly learned, when I started working with the Millers, is that Gary was up for any change–he was going to eat dirt, if I told him, only to get better–my kind of guy! That’s exactly how I approach life myself. His only exception was–no garlic . I am still working on that, but it’s not something I would fight them on .
Fay, on the other hand, is a totally different personality. She simply does not like changes, and if she does not like something, she makes it known, and becomes… grouchy. Oh, the time I had talking to her about changing her mindset during our second call. I wish you all could hear us. We had a serious conversation about their food addictions. I explained to them that what they were going through [food withdrawals] is normal, and is very similar to the withdrawals drug addicts experience when they go through a cleansing process. As such, I advised them to follow the steps of their own program and treat their symptoms as addiction withdrawals. As you can imagine, I did raise their eyebrows: “Addict? Us?!” YEP! And the quicker you realize it the better you are off.
I also told them to expect for their taste buds to readjust, cleanse and prepare to LOVE their new diet… to which Fay shook her head in disbelief and said mournfully: “I hope so, honey.”
She and I made a pact that she would work on reprogramming her brain, and thinking of her foods as her medicine–true medicine–a lifeline, and that she would dwell only on the positive things of her new lifestyle, thanking God for every sip of green smoothies and juices she took, since her healing was going to come though the foods and her faith in God.
Change is Coming
Just imagine how elated I was when I got this text from Fay today: “I’m starting to enjoy my new diet. We are out and about today with our kale chips, fresh veggies and our smoothies!!!” Yes, indeed, she even had exclamation signs after her statement. Oh, the joy that filled my heart.
The change that is taking a place in their bodies is extraordinary–they bodies are expelling vast amounts of toxins on a daily basis, while purifying their organs with delicious, nutrient dense foods–which also build up their immune system. To help their bodies with expelling toxins, both, Gary and Fay, are starting on coffee enemas [that's the only way you should ever take your coffee ]; if they don’t their bodies would have to work harder and they would experience detox symptoms longer than needed.
Gary and Fay are going to see their physician by the end of this month to get an update, and to also test for B12 deficiency, which, most likely is happening in their bodies. Once they get the results they will go on injectable B12 [if you red B12 series you understand how important B12 is in fight with cancer and any other disease]. I personally cannot wait for that day, since I know that they will start improving even faster with B12.
Besides the wonderful response from our sponsors, Gary and Fay shared more good news with me–the acid reflux, that both of them suffered from for years, is now completely gone… just as expected. I am sure that this is only the beginning of good news we are going to hear from them in the very near future.
Please keep praying for Gary and Fay, and, if you feel inspired, consider a donation, which will help me to get more much needed equipment and superfoods for them.
As Gary and Fay meet for our weekly calls, I always prepare something educational and positive to share with them. Last week I shared a portion of The Gerson Miracle video with them, which had raised their spirits. If you have not yet seen this documentary–do! Make it a family night, grab a glass of greens, kick back and watch miracles unfold in front of you. I am embedding the video in this post, but you can also watch it on youtube–simply click on the link to get to it.
