Allison Huish heals from a brain tumor with natural therapies
Allison Huish was about 10 years old when she began to experience hearing loss, stomach problems and weight loss. She had numerous visits to the doctor but no one could figure out what was causing her health problems.
Because the weight loss was such a concern, Allison was eventually sent for an evaluation with a pediatric gastrointestinal specialist around the age of 13. During the appointment she was asked to track the doctor’s finger as it went sideways, and then up and down. As she did this her doctor noticed that her eyes would quiver when she tried looking upwards. This was concerning so she was immediately sent for an MRI that revealed an egg-sized tumor resting on her brain stem (pilocytic astrocytoma).
Allison had a 7 hour surgery the following day but the surgeon was only able to remove about half of the tumor. The other half was inoperable because it was intertwined with the nerves of her brain. Allison reports that her heart had actually stopped beating when they tried to remove more of the tumor and so they were forced to stop it. Her family was told that this was the best that could do surgically and that she needed to have radiation therapy.
Allison’s doctor was also concerned about getting her weight up and so he gave her mother this advice. “It doesn’t matter what she eats, just feed her anything. You can feed her fries, pizza, and full-fat ice cream. Just get calories into her.” It was at that point that her mom realized that it was much more important to put good calories into her daughter than the junk foods that the doctor was recommending, and so she started Allison on a whole foods diet to give her body the nutrients that it needed to heal.
The family later met with a radiologist to deal with the remainder of the tumor, but Allison reports that her mother did not feel comfortable with her daughter having this therapy after she heard about the potential risks that were involved. Allison says, “radiation on your knee is one thing. But radiation on the brain stem of a 13 year old just isn’t the same.” And so her mom made the decision to look elsewhere for the answers. She visited several health food stores and began researching online for testimonials of people who had cured themselves of brain tumors so that she could find out exactly what they had used in order to heal. One term that she kept coming across was ‘frankincense oil.’She also found studies showing that frankincense was able to shrink tumors.
Allison started using Frankincense Essential Oils by rubbing it on the back of her head where her scar was, as well as on the reflexology points of her feet and she said that she began to take it orally as well. She did this by placing one drop of the oil on her tongue and then pressing her tongue up and back to reach the soft palate area on the roof of her mouth because there are many blood vessels at this location. She did this oral therapy every two hours during the day. Allison also used Clove Oil along with Sandalwood by applying them topically. Allison also spoke of supplementing with Digestive Enzymes, which have the ability to help in the digestive and metabolic processes of the body. Read more about digestive enzymes
Allison says that she was able to regain her strength very quickly, and she was able to return to school just three weeks after having the surgery. She was putting on weight and says that she was feeling good. She continued to use the oils, along with eating a healthy diet and went to see her doctor every six months for checkups. She says that the doctor began calling her “the miracle child” because her recovery was so incredible. He would tell her, “You’re doing great…. What ever you’re doing, keep doing it.” And added,“If you have any headaches, come see me. If not, we’ll see you in another six months.”
Allison explained what happened to the tumor, “Normal tumors grow and spread, and they start intertwining and appear fuzzy in the MRI’s. But my tumor started to do the opposite. It began to come together and to encapsulate itself. And over the course of a couple of years, it shrank until it had completely dissolved.”…….. “So when I went to see my doctor, he had to look closely at the dates of the MRI’s to make sure that he was looking at the right one.”
It took about three years of healthy eating and the oil therapy for the tumor to totally disappear. Allison continued to eat well and says that many of her high school friends would noticed that she would always bring in salads for her lunch and avoided the trips for fast foods after school, and the chips and sodas that were served at their parties on the weekends. She says that she already knew how these non-foods made her look and feel and so it became very easy for her to refuse them. Soon her friends were asking her questions about how they could eat healthier too. Allison said that she really enjoyed sharing the information that she had learned and this fueled her desire to enter the field of nutrition when she graduated from high school.
Allison went off to college to receive a master’s degree in nutrition as well as a degree in fitness training. She started her career by working in a nursing home and then in a hospital setting, but she says that her job was more focused on sickness rather than actually helping the patients to become well. She says, “I wanted to focus on wellness and actually help people. So I started private coaching and lecturing across the country about eating a real, whole food diet. I started teaching people how to make green smoothies, healthy desserts, and inexpensive healthy dinners. My classes were sometimes around a blender or the kitchen table. And the topics included alternative health, balancing hormones, maximizing energy, and losing weight naturally. I loved it! The feeling of waking up every day where you have the opportunity to help people really change their lives is powerful.”

It should be noted that only therapeutic grade essential oils should be taken internally. Please find a reputable company that supplies quality oil if you are going to attempt a similar protocol. Read more about essential oils

Enzymes- When food is consumed, it gets broken down for absorption and then transported by the blood stream through the work of enzymatic activity. Nutrients work synergistically -which means they cooperate with each other, acting as catalysts in biological reactions within the body. The importance of digestive enzymes resides in the fact that the human body cannot absorb nutrients in food unless digestive enzymes are available to break them down.

Proteolytic enzymes- taking larger doses of proteolytic enzymes can also be used to break down the fibrin (protein) coating that surrounds tumors, allowing the immune system to recognize the tumor. Read more about systemic enzyme therapy
