How My Father Beat Colon Cancer

by Vedrana C., Toronto

Alternative medicine has always been a very big part of my life. I remember being a little girl and spending days in the fields with my grandmother, picking flowers and herbs that  we either dried or made into oil infusions and some were even used to make soaps and creams. I remember being so overwhelmed with positive energy during these special outings, it was as if ittotally enveloped me inside and out. Nature was and still is a very big part of my life as it really helps me stay grounded. Nature offers us so much. We just have to be aware of it, respect it and use it to our advantage. All its beauty,  positive vibration and expansion is very inspiring and powerful.  Energy does wonders to our bodies. Even though I was not exposed to homeopathy at an early age, the older I got, the more I appreciated what it stood for. I was always drawn to it, I would find myself listening and reading about it every time I had a chance.  Believing in our body’s ability to heal itself without conventional medicines is so refreshing.  How can something be so simple and yet so difficult to accept?

As I entered my teenage years, life took my family and I on a different path. We left my birthplace and my grandmother.  She stayed in Europe and we came to Canada.  As a result, I lost touch with alternative medicine and energy healing throughout my teenage years and early twenties.  It was not long after I got married that my father was diagnosed with stage four colon cancer.  All medical results were indicating metastasis to his liver and lymph nodes.  At that time, he was told that at best he might have another six months to live.  I was five months pregnant with my first daughter. This was a wake-up call for me and my whole family.  My father was determined to prove everyone wrong and see his first grandchild take her first steps.  His strong will and love for life, combined wth homeopathic healing are the reasons he is still here wth us today, seven years later.  He lived to see his first grandchild walk and essentially  be part of her life in every which way possible. Being able to walk her to school has been a highlight of his life.  After seeing how homeopathy saved my father, I was very much inspired by the knowledge, quality and professionalism of the homeopaths that prescriped remedies to him, constantly making a difference in people’s lives. To become a homepath and help so many people and share your knowledge, patience and kindness wth others raised just one question for me, “How can it get better than that?”

One awesome aspect regarding homeopathy and energy healing is that you do not even have to believe in its powers to see that it indeed works and that it can most definitely change people’s lives. Our bodies have this amazing ability to heal themselves by using the right tools provided to us on this beautiful planet called Earth.  If a group of people are diagnosed with the same illness or disease, what is so special about homeopathy is that they will not be treated the same. A homeopath will look beyond the diagnoses and observe each person individually before prescribing anything. The best thing about homeopathy is that it does not camouflage or mask the problem. What homeopathy does is treat the root of the issue, ridding the body of any deficiencies.

Homeopathic remedies encourage the body’s natural ability to heal oneself and to help return it to normalcy through natural balance.
