I hope Valerie gets this message, I need to ask her to google for alternate/natural treatment for her cancer which definitely works. I have been researching from years and I have learnt that colloidal silver (also soaking real clean silver in water overnight and drinking it on daily basis) and also high doses of natural vitamin C and also natural vitamin D or D3 works wonders. Fresh juices with very high amount of vitamin C cures almost all diseases. In fact vitamin C is required for absorption and curing. Also regular deep breathing (yoga or pranayam) works wonder as cancer cells cannot survive in clean and healthy and originated body I wish her lots of luck. God bless her.
