Demi Mckenzie, 20 years old Female, weighing 62 kg / 136.4 lbs, 64 in /162.56 cm tall, Worcestershire. From Redditch, United Kingdom
Doing 50 days of Juice Fasting. Starting October 25, 2010
Reasons for Fasting:
In 2009, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I had 3 rounds of chemotherapy, an operation, and radiotherapy hoping this would cure me. In September 2010; I had a another one of many PET scans and it showed the cancer had spread again to my right shoulder bone, a few of my vertebra, and a lymph between my lungs. The doctors said they could not cure my cancer but will try and control it to allow me to have a normal life for as long as possible. This would mean a repeat of what I had already been going through while 19 and 20 years old. Practically living in different hospitals. This news was heartbreaking for me but I decided not to be a victim of cancer and decided to take control of it myself.
So here I am 6 days into a juice fast.
Past Fasting Experience:
The most I have ever fasted was the month before I came to Sagada. I realized my diet had to change. So I cut out all dairy, carbohydrates and sugar. This meant I was pretty much living on just vegetables.
My present diet is a combination of different supplements, fasting and an enzyme treatment.
I am taking Flaxseed oil twice a day, transfer factor three times a day, turmeric twice a day, B1 once a day, and DCA twice a day. I also take raw pigs pancreas, one tea spoon three times a day (enzyme treatment). I drink lots of green tea, nano silver water and juice. Over the last few days my juice has been ginger and carrot. I also do a coffee enema every day.
Juicing: Mostly carrot ginger and some green juices. DCA Nano Silver Raw Pig Pancreas 3 heaped teaspoons daily Tumeric
Relevant Medical History:
By Ester, her Mother:
I was in labor with Demi for 4 days (she was facing the wrong way) so ended up having a forceps delivery. She had swallowed something as she delivered so they gave her antibiotics by injection straight away as a precaution.
For the first few months, Demi had bad tummy colic pains.
At 8-9 months she had gastroenteritis.
When she was 3 years old she had a really bad stomach and her gut flipped – luckily it flipped back on its own but was in hospital for a few days.
She started to get eczema at about 3 years.
She had a bit of asthma around 10-12 years.
Demi started her periods when she was 12 years old. She has achy back and joints around her periods.
At 15 years old Demi had a root canal filling and has had a few infections in it since so had antibiotics.
She had acne through her teenage years and the dermatologist put her on Roacatan which is a strong drug apparently and I think its hormone based.
At 17 years Demi went on the contraceptive pill.
The lump in her breast came when she was 18. The doctors said her cancer is highly estrogen sensitive and she is BRCA 2 positive.
Demi always reacted positively to natural treatments. An example of this was when she had bad tummy pains and paracetamol didn’t seem to help. A lady happened to be with us at the time who was a reiki healer. She did reiki on her and within a few minutes the pains had completely gone.

State of Mind:
I am on a journey to recovery. This is how I see my situation. I am working to become content here in this natural, mountainous part of the Philippines called Sagada.
Iv'e changed my state of mind from being a victim to being in control and the boss of my body. Through this I am reaping the benefits as I know I am giving my body the best chance to cure itsself of cancer. It is a rollercoaster of which I am now happy to be on, as I am learning so much from Tom and myself as I now have my eyes open.
I feel this awful disease has helped me to see clearly and I now have the knowledge to help others prevent this from happening to them. This is my purpose and I am now excited for the future.
If I was answering this question a few weeks ago, I would have tried to kid you and myself and said, I don't believe I have any limitations. But now, I can say this knowing I believe it with every molecule of my body. Even the cancerous ones.
Something has changed drastically inside of me and I now know I am slowly but surely curing myself of cancer. This knowledge allows me to believe I can conquer anything I put my mind, body and soul into if I really want it. Limitation is not a word I can live with anymore and therefore does not exist in my life.
Who has paithed this crazy path for me?
