Taking Charge of Your Health: Erin’s Story

Taking Charge of Your Health: Erin’s Story

Many of my readers have shared their personal stories with me over the years about their victories over their health battles. And I feel so happy and blessed to be able to connect with you in this way.

Today I wanted to share one of those victories.

Erin is a stage IV uterine cancer survivor who took charge of her health and beat the odds. And this is why I want to highlight her story.

I understand firsthand how scary it is to be given an terrifying diagnosis and be suddenly and unexpectedly facing your own mortality. Your normal life comes to a grinding halt and you find yourself looking for help and answers.

And of course, we have been brought up to believe that doctors have all the answers. At the same time, we’ve also been led to believe that we have no business deciding our own care and treatment plan. We should simply listen to the experts and just do what they say.

While I believe doctors and a professional healthcare team can certainly play a crucial role in your healing journey, ultimately true empowerment comes from taking control of your own health and becoming your own advocate.

Doctors may be experts with a degree hanging on their wall, but YOU are an expert on your own body. You know your history and how your body has worked and felt better than any doctor ever could.

Another reason why I believe it is so important for all of us to take control of our healthcare decisions is because it fosters a sense of self-confidence. When we become an active participant in our own well-being and make choices that align with our best health outcomes, we stop feeling anxious and helpless. And that feeling alone is priceless!

And that’s exactly what Erin did. I am so touched by her story and the way she took control of her health. She did it. She believed in her body’s innate ability to heal.

Erin used both traditional allopathic medicine and alternative medicine approaches in her healing journey. But what she also did was research. A lot of research! She used the Internet to do her own digging to see what has worked for other people. She took a lot of notes to essentially develop her own protocol to heal. How amazing! And what a gift the Internet is to all of us! By sharing our stories of how we cured ourselves from “incurable diseases,” we give each other the hope and information needed to fight our own cancer battles.

Erin mentioned she spent a lot of time on the Chris Beat Cancer website. She also learned a lot of information right here at Prue’s Place. She joined facebook groups and others that connected her to like-minded and empowered people.

Erin did have surgery to remove some tumors and 6 rounds of chemotherapy (Taxol and Carboplatin) to start her treatment. She also added a lot of supplements to her diet, with CBD oil being a main one she relied on daily.

Some other supplements she included in her protocol are Beta Glucan,  SOL, organic Matcha Green Tea, Moringa Leaf Powder, Super Digestive Enzymes with Probiotics, Optimized Quercetin (good for Endometrial cancer), European Milk Thistle, Qunol Mega CoQ10 Ubiquinol, Omega 3, Liquid Chlorophyll ES, Ester C 1,000 mg Vit C twice a day, and Vitamin D3 5,000 iu.

Erin also cleaned up her diet and ate only healthy, wholesome foods. Juicing was a big part of her daily intake, with a focus on juicing carrots. She made sure to get some exercise each day and used a rebounder (mini trampoline), which is great for moving the lymphatic fluid.

And finally, she filled herself with positivity! This is so so important. Erin says she prayed a lot and laughed a lot, too. She read a lot of books that gave her hope and insights, books like Radical Remission, Dying to Be Me, Mind Over Medicine, and lots of others.

But perhaps the most important thing she did was to believe. Erin believed down deep that she had the power to heal. That is a gift we can give each other. That is why I do what I do and why Chris from Chris Beats Cancer does what he does. And why Erin gave me permission to share her story.

Our body’s are perfect. They were made by God to be perfectly healthy and to heal from all sorts of illnesses and diseases. Yes, even the ‘incurable ones!”

How Can You Become Your Own Health Advocate?

Taking control goes beyond just making healthy choices.  Here’s how to become a strong advocate for your own health:

Do your research

There’s a wealth of credible health information available online and in libraries. Use reputable sources and prioritize sites with a .gov or .edu extension. Use the Pubmed website to find studies that show conclusively natural health protocols have been shown to fight cancer. For example, if you tell a loved one you’re drinking carrot juice to fight cancer, they will look at you like you’re crazy. Go ahead and SHOW THEM the studies that confirm the phytochemicals in carrots have, indeed, been shown to fight cancer.

Ask questions

Don’t hesitate to ask your doctor for clarification on diagnoses, treatment options, and potential side effects. If you can, bring a friend or family member with you who can be another set of eyes and ears.

Seek second opinions

If you’re unsure about a diagnosis or treatment plan, getting a second opinion can provide peace of mind and additional insights. This is important when dealing with an oncologist who scoffs at alternative medicine. You want someone who will at least respect that you may also want to explore some of the supplements and treatments Erin, Chris and I and many, many other cancer survivors have used to heal.

Taking control of your health is an ongoing journey.  There will be setbacks, but the long-term benefits are undeniable. By prioritizing your well-being, becoming informed, and advocating for yourself, you invest in a healthier, happier, and more fulfilling life.

Thank you Erin for allowing me to share your wonderful success! 💝

  1. Your good work has been so beneficial to me in the most difficult year of my life, and I am so grateful for all that Dr. Kokobi does. At age 38, I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Breast Cancer. With no family history of cancer and 2 young children to care for, I had a whole lot more questions than answers and it felt like I was drowning. I reached out to Dr. Kokobi and immediately felt like a loving and generous Doctor. He gave me the information I needed and started his treatment on me as soon as possible which was really very helpful to me though it wasn’t easy but believe me it was worth it. I threw everything I had at the cancer and am so grateful that the tumors have shrunk, and I can confidently say I’m now cancer-free. Gratitude and love to Dr. Kokobi. I am so, so grateful to Dr. Kokobi for all he has done. You may wish to send him a mail if you’re battling any disease, infection of any kind.
