My granny breast cancer was detected in 2014 when did Byopsy. Our family doctor suggested don’t do any treatment coz she won’t b able to take pain of chemotherapy. Initially she didn’t faced any problem but gradually after 3/4 years it started with infection & pus. She didn’t tell anybody about it. Suddenly one fine day in November, 2018 due to infection she got fever & she fell down on same lumph. It started with bleeding heavily. Doctor gave medicine & dressing. We did her pet scan n now cancer have reached to her longs s well. In June we completed our radiation. Due to her high blood pressure she got paralysis stroke. What is the best way to clear her pus & avoid growth of cancer. I know we can’t remove cancer from our body but we can’t from dat disease. Plz help best possible way in sharing ur opinions. Would be god & happy

Dear Vaishali It is really sad to know about your granny's condition. We suggest a Cancer protocol to you. This advice is given to people who are undergoing Chemotherapy. Give her a bowl of soursop soup every day. Follow the following:
1. Take 1 tablespoon of Turmeric powder, a pinch of black pepper and half a tablespoon of clarified butter and add all to a heated pan. Heat it for 5 min only on low flames.
2. Have a bowl of fresh jack fruit every day. Make sure you have ripen fruit not raw.
3. Have a cup of fresh wheatgrass juice every day.
4. Take fresh carrot, beetroot, celery, oranges, lemon and add a few drops of Hemp oil on it. Give a bowl of salad every day.
This advice is for educational purpose only. It is not intended to replace a doctor. Please consult your doctor before taking any herb.

CONTINUED FOR VAISHALI... 5. Give massive doses of Vitamin C every day.
6. Take carrot juice, 2-3 glasses every day, regularly for 8 weeks. This is so effective that it can even reverse the Cancer. Just have faith.
The moment you feed your faith, the fear will starve. And then, there you go, overcoming this challenge, like any other challenges you must have so far in your life. Take care!
