    Procedure or Surgery

    I had seen a naturepath who prior to surgery and chemo had built up my strength through exceptional nutrition and supplementation to both assist the chemo against the possible remaining cancer cells and protect my good cells from the chemo.

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I have not been able to remember nor does my thinking seem to be as quick as before the chemo. When my cancer was surgically removed I was told chemo would take care of any stray remaining cells. I later learned how effective and powerfull a plant based whole food diet & exercise could be against cancer cells which I would have now chosen to do in lieu of chemo. I very suspicious of how much more quickly I've aged over a 3 year post chemo period and the aches and stiffness I feel.

    Easy to Do: Strongly Disagree
    Minimal Side Effects: Agree
