I’m coming home early. I’m coming home with a single acupuncture session as the only “treatment” I was able to do. Quite a long distance to travel for acupuncture. I leave behind the possibilities of IV Vitamin C infusions, Hyperthermia, Immune Targeted Therapies and other integrative cancer treatments that have success treating a cancer patient … Continue reading My CTCA Experience
I am a few days out from my trip to CTCA Zion and I’ve been asked by the doctors there to put together my daily routine.
