Update One – (4 months) After 12 weeks of daily radiation treatment, my PSA level (prostate cancer marker) has gone from 147 (very high) to 0 (zero). For this to happen so quickly is amazing. We attacked this with everything we had – Word of God, Bible faith, personal and group prayer, a positive outlook, obedient giving, low carbohydrate diet, vitamins and supplements, radiation, and hormone therapy. I experienced very little side effects from the radiation and hormone treatments.
I am doing what I believe God wanted me to do in this, and I am definitely on course for what I was believing for. Thank you to anyone who prayed for me.
Update Two – (6 months) I just received my CT scan results and all my areas that were enlarged because of cancer are now back to normal. This is a confirmation that I am clear of material cancer. I am still on the hormone treatment to kill off (starve) cancer cells that might be floating around in my system. I am also still on the low carbohydrate diet (see, What is a Keto Diet? and What is The Ketogenic Diet?) because that also helps to starve cancer cells – cancer cells love sugar. In fact, some cancer tests (like PET scan), actually look for concentrations of sugar (fructose) because that is where the cancer will be.
Update Three – (8 months) I just received more PET and CT scan results that show that I am now back to normal. This is another confirmation that I am clear of cancer. I am still on the hormone treatment but I met with my urologist to discuss getting off the treatment. Normal treatment guidelines recommend staying on the treatment for another year or two. I am not going to do that. I believe God has told me to stay on for another six months.
Update Four – (11 months) As of yesterday I am officially off all cancer medications. I was still taking hormone depletion medication and now that can stop. This is wonderful, as I hate the effects of this. It will take 3 to 4 months for the effects to fully wear off. This is the one part of the process that was difficult for me. Changing your hormones affects all aspects of your body and thought. I gained weight and I felt weird at times. From now on, every day will a bit better than the last. They will now monitor me every few months to confirm that I am clear. However, I know in my heart that I am. Basically, it is all over. Praise God! What a journey; God was good all the way. God’s word works.
You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:13
God’s Word is medicine for our spirit, soul and body, and the way we experience its power is by speaking it out loud, praying it to God, meditating on it, and believing it. When you speak His Word over your life, it releases the power of God into your life. It won’t work for us if we just have a Bible on a shelf and leave it on a shelf. We have to use it. Use it to plant faith into your heart for healing and victory. The promises of healing in the Bible can and will heal you.
For they are life to those who find them and health to all their body.
I just found out that I have an aggressive form of prostate cancer. My PSA level (prostate cancer marker) of 147 is very high and nearly always indicates that the cancer has spread throughout the body. In my case, it had not spread, which is a miracle. It was probably due to a low carbohydrate diet that I started coincidentally at the same time the cancer probably started – in March of 2014. At that time, I had no idea that I had, or would have cancer. I started the diet to simply lose weight and feel better, which I did, but cancer loves sugar, and the diet basically starved the cancer for nine months till it was discovered. Then, when it was discovered it was, “Wow, I have cancer and I need to fight this thing with everything I can.” I doubled up on reading the Bible, listened to sermons on healing, confessed the word of God, and spent much time seeking Him on how I should approach this evil. I heard from God and the following are the scriptures and the directions I received.
Find out where your faith is, go there, and then take a stand. Don’t move from it. This is what I am believing for:
- No long-term damage
- No side effects from the medications or treatments
- It will come to an end – After all this I will be cancer free
- I will fulfill my life and destiny in Jesus Name
- My youth is being renewed and all my parts are like new
Take all the treatments and medications that you can. Do everything you can. Fight it with everything you have.
If your faith can’t move your mouth, it won’t move your mountain.When I am in the machine receiving a radiation treatment, I am saying out of my mouth, “This radiation is killing the cancer cells; they can’t live through this, they are dying, and my body is not damaged in any way.” Actually, it was funny because after a couple of weeks of treatment the radiation tech couldn’t stand it anymore and he had to ask who I was talking to while I was in the machine. I told him that I was talking to God, the devil, the world, and to my body. I was declaring the outcome before the outcome, that is faith. I was also visualizing in my mind all the cancer cells dying and my normal cells being restored and rejuvenated.
