Packed Up and Ready to Go

Friends, as some of you know, Samantha's sister was diagnosed with cancer a few weeks ago, and given 3-6 months to live.

As most of us around here know, thanks in part to stillwater's epic alternative cancer post, that kind of a sentence is by no means set in stone. In fact, for reasons completely unrelated to cancer, I spent two weeks at the Ann Wigmore Institute in Puerto Rico over the summer and I learned so much about enzyme nutrition and the powerful healing properties of a raw, plant based diet.

Tomorrow we're leaving for Taiwan to be with Sam's sister, to help support her on this journey. In the big red suitcase we've got a new Omega 8006 juicer and a Vitamix, neither of which is easy to obtain in Taiwan.

I want to thank you for your prayers, the information, and all of the support in general.

The Daily Paul has been a great blessing to me. Thank you all. In a few days, I'll check back in from the other side of the world (the time difference is exactly 12 hours).

Don't Forget the Electrical Adapters

for the juicer!

Hopefully this will help

Dear Michael and family,

I just saw this http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/salud/salud_defeatcancer16... about a man who defeated his stage IV cancer with baking soda and molasses. There are lots of helpful links in the article. I pray for you all and your sister in law. Much love to you.

Michael - Have you heard of this: "Cancer: Step Outside The Box"

It's a book by author Ty Bollinger about cancer.

I heard him speak recently on "Coast To Coast" and he made a lot of sense.

Here is a video of him speaking about his book.

Here is a link to Amazon where you can read reviews about this book.

Might be worth a try.
Best wishes on your trip.

Vitamin B17 I know SEVERAL

Vitamin B17 I know SEVERAL people who have been CURED with B17 and you can get it at www.apricotpower.com. You need 1000 mg a day. Start with 500 for 5 days then 1000. Just DO IT. Even G Edward Griffin reported on this in the 1980's and there's a video on that on youtube "B17 cancer cure" All hidden. Also the bitter almond tree which has the highest source was BANNED in the US. A tree!!!!!

Also stop all sugar immediately!

Get B17!!! I don't know why I am up so early but maybe to post this. Also, with the B17 get the Essiac Tea from the same site. A Canadian nurse had a 50% success rate with just the tea. Compare that with the 100% success rate of the three people I know with the B17. Get the 500mg tablets. DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!


B-17 is excellent and so is Gravolia!

I am 80% cancer free using these and immune supplements also such as Beta Glucan.

Stay away from that horrible, horrible, horrible High Fructose Corn Syrup!

Did I tell you the stuff is horrible?

Peace & Prayers

" In Thee O Lord do I put my trust " ~ Psalm 31:1~

Positive energy, peaceful thoughts, and much love sent your way.

As I am your brother

and as you are mine.

I have not been singing, feeling that negative energy might come through, I am now whole yet

but we don't pick the song. It picks us. And I want to sing it.

What I get from my ancestors now is yours are coming together.

I feel good about that. Very.

They are there with you now Mikeoroonie. You should be feeling it.

Most of those who think so actually don't and most of those who think sew actually rip.

My song isn't coming through either.

I skipped an open-mike tonight partly for that reason.

Daily Paul cured my abibliophobia.

I'm getting some time to take authority vibes

Leader of DP you are correct, my people approve.

Be a son-in-law. And carry the honor of your ancestors because mine say "you people" have this one covered. Honest. We felt a tunnel. It would be highly intrusive and disrespectful for us to counsel you at this time. That is what I am told.

We love you.

Most of those who think so actually don't and most of those who think sew actually rip.

You've got lots of good DP Mojo comin' your way...


Cancer Sucks!

My family is going through it too Michael...I feel for you...


For Freedom!
The World is my country, all mankind is my brethren, to do good is my religion.


B17!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! www.apricotpower.com 1000 mg a day I know three people cured from it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To Michael, Samantha and family

Wishing you many blessings and a safe trip.

I wish your family the best.

I don't know what might be in line or not with your beliefs, so I'll just put this out there for what it might be worth:
~ Here is the testimony of Dodie Osteen, Joel Osteen's mother, who 20 years ago was diagnosed with liver cancer and given weeks to live. The first half is her story. In the second half she's recorded the 40 healing scriptures she spoke every morning (and still does). http://hopefaithprayer.com/books/Healed%20of%20Cancer%20-%20...
~ Between Bernie Siegel's Love, Medicine, & Miracles (which I read in the 80's), what I've learned since thru various books and documentaries on the connection between body, mind, and spirit, including the study of epigenetics (the ability to change our very DNA), the teaching of Gloria Copeland re healing (personally aware of one rather dramatic story involving a friend who was hospitalized)... I can't other than believe in the power of God to heal... or perhaps one might say, God creating our bodies with the capacity to heal themselves. Re the Copelands, prayers can be submitted by e-mail at their website or by phone. And here is a tape I found of one of Gloria's healing seminars. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJS2A8z1JaM

Our thoughts and prayers are are with you, Michael,

your lovely wife, Samantha, and her sister. Praying for healing for Samantha's sister and traveling mercies for all of you. The best of health, joy, peace and prosperity to you and yours. (Also praying for wisdom for all the doctors, nurses and other staff.) I know you are already inclined to go the natural route rather than the typical cancer treatments here, and I am so glad.

I'll keep your family in my prayers...

Just came across your post. I'm glad your wife's sister has the love and support she needs.

There is always hope!

"There is a time and a purpose to everything under heaven"

Your just being there for her will do her more good than even you may know.

I'd say that she is a very blessed woman to have you two on the way to fill her days with love and hope.

Some here have mentioned Bible stories that remind them of eating certain foods that are better for the body, but your going half way around the world to GIVE of yourselves, reminds me of the book of James where it tells us that it is the DOING something, and not just talking about it is where the heart and intentions of a person really is revealed.

I am 80 % cancer free after 3 year of using Budwigs Cottage Cheese and Flaxseed Oil blended, plus building up my immune system with supplements, and especially from staying away from that cancer spreading High Fructose Corn Syrup or any form of Corn Syrup.

Many are sending their prayers unto the Lord with much love for you all and that she may be made whole.

Stay well Michael , stay in touch, stay in prayer and give her our love from the DP!


" In Thee O Lord do I put my trust " ~ Psalm 31:1~

I'm glad it's working for you~

Are you still using the Bill Henderson protocol or are you taking products in addition to the supplements listed in the protocol?

Best wishes...

Michael, to you and yours. Prayer works, something like love, know I am praying and sending love. And, I know a few people who healed themselves from cancer on a macrobiotic diet. You probably have heard of the Kushi Institute; it's in Cambridge, or used to be. Just went to the website and it says it is located in Becket, MA, in the Berkshires. http://www.kushiinstitute.org/

Made it through security at Boston Logan

It always freaks me out to think that one of the planes on 9/11 originated here.

First a short hop to NY JFK, then a 14 hour long haul to Taipei. We used our miles to upgrade to business class. We were saving those for some undetermined something in the future, but you only live (this life) once.

- sigh -

Thank you everyone for the kind words, the prayers, and the support. It means a lot to me.

I'll send pictures and updates from Taipei.

Take care

Hope all turns out well.

a safe trip Michael. Your trip to PR and resulting knowledge will definitely come in handy. Interesting how that worked out.

And yes, kudos to stillwater for compiling ALL of that info.

May is very fortunate to have you both in her life. I cringe when I think about what her body is about to go through with the more traditional "practices" and wish she was in a different position mentally.

But, sometimes you have to work with what you have, and she will have a tremendous advantage with you and Sam in her corner. You are armed with knowledge that even May's doctor probably doesn't have. Plus, you have all of the thoughts, prayers and well wishes from many here.

Michael Nystrom's picture

Thank you Jefferson

for all the info & the support, over the years.

You are a true original and the world is a better place with you in it.

((((((new Omega 8006 juicer and a Vitamix)))))))

May your new tools arrive safe and work hard to succeed kicking that cancer's business right out of your family.

My favorite raw food recipe is passing ripe banana through the champion juicer.. best banana ice cream! top with fresh berries or black walnuts chopped small.. or make a sauce in the vitamix with 1 cup soaked, rinsed cashews, 1/4 cup chocolate or carob powder, raw agave to sweeten..water or apple juice to thin, blend to smooth (pinch of salt, dash of vanilla/ cinnamon, are all options.. shot of grand manier or southern comfort for that matter.. hee hee).

I keep my kale chips in the oven, it's a staple here, and I make my kim chee, which you can add medicinal ingredients..

I hope your sister-on-law is in good spirits and you will all be able to travel together to some place special to her, that she would like to see or do.. may love, happiness and good health prevail! LOVE G.

Healing & Hope

Wishing you safe

travels to all who are travelling with you. This reminds me of the story in The Book of Daniel, where Daniel refuses to eat the King's food and instead live on I believe it was nuts and berries, in which the Bible states Daniel looked much healthier than the King and his men after eating this way for a bit. Sorry to paraphrase it, but it is in there. Many prayers for all and hope she pulls through. A positive attitude is a very good remedy for cancer, I hope she keeps her spirits up. I find it amazing that doctors tell people when they will die, like they are God or something. I knew a guy given 6 weeks to live 6 years ago, he is still going strong. He changed his diet and has been consuming cannabis since the diagnosis. No doctor knows when we will go, only the Man above knows. Keep the faith, safe travels.

The Road Not Taken

The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

I'll try to behave myself while your away Michael.

pack some love

it goes a long way

Michael Nystrom's picture

Bringing lots of that

As much as we have.

There is an infinite supply of love, if you know how to tap into it.

There are people who know how. I want to become one of them.

Thank you.

it is within you

I agree with Crickett below that it is within you.

OTOH sometimes visualizations help. Try imagining a waterfall of love pouring down the top of your head filling you up with love. Close you eyes if you need to. Keep imagining until you feel so full that it is going to start seeping though your pores. how good you feel- how light. Imagine it flowing down your arms and out your palms.

Give someone a big hug :-)

Bon Voyage, Michael!

Hope, Faith, and Love are powerful emotions

and can overcome many obstacles. I have seen them help people live much longer than was estimated. She will be surround by many people who will help her. And I could think of no one better than you.

Thank you Curt

You are a good man.

+ prayers for your

Safe travels......

Blessings to you and your family Michael. May this journey be full of goodness and wonderful healing :)

Fear knocked on my door and Faith answered!

Godspeed Michael..
