Peggy's story (Health
Issue: Colon Cancer)
My sister was diagnosed with
colon cancer when she was 50 years old. We were 11½
apart in age. Since our grandmother had also had colon cancer,
I decided to make my 50th birthday present to myself a colonoscopy.
My test came back positive and after aggressive surgery and chemotherapy
treatment and radiation. I decided to seek alternative medicine
immediately. My sister had advanced stages of cancer and had been to
the university hospitals as well as Sloan Kettering in New York. She
didn't seek alternative methods with Dr. Guo until things were really
advanced. Even though she was in the end stages of cancer, Dr. Guo was
a great comfort to her and she always liked his positive attitude. When
I was diagnosed I decided that I was not going to wait until I was in
end stages of this disease. Seeing her respect for Dr. Guo and having
known people who highly recommend him, I visited him right after my
He started me
on a regiment of herbs while I was also receiving chemotherapy and radiation.
Through all of this very difficult treatment, I never was sick
and I never missed a day of work.
Dr. Guo has treated my allergies, my
high blood pressure along with a lot of everyday complaints
to great success. Not only have I been cancer free now for
I no longer take high blood pressure medication and I only
use herbs for my allergies. I have recommended him to many
friends and acquaintances who have had serious diseases and
most of them have been successful. There is definitely something
to alternatives to bio-chemical medicine. Even though I still
can't turn my back on Western medicine, I know that I am giving
myself the best chance at survival by using both method. My daughter
is also a patient of Dr. Guo. She is in her early 20's and I am hoping that
she can get an early start to keeping herself in good health by practicing the
entire Chinese philosophy to long life, heath, and happiness. I wish that
there were more support by our Western medical expert
to support and recommend the use of alternatives. Until that time, we
patients must be the eye witness and the advocates for this choice.
Our insurance companies could learn that this could be a lot
less expensive way of treatment than they currently supply. I'M GLAD
THAT I HAVE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO MEET THIS MAN AND I HOLD HIM RESPONSIBLE
FOR MY CURRENT HEALTHY STATUS.
