Carl O. Helvie heals from lung cancer with diet, supplements, and lifestyle changes
It was over 38 years ago when Carl O. Helvie received his diagnosis of lung cancer and was given only 6 months to live. Doctors immediately wanted to schedule him for surgery to remove the cancerous tumor, but since Carl already worked in the health care industry, he decided to take the time and explore the various holistic therapies that were available to him.
Carl was able to find a sympathetic doctor who was willing to offer him guidance and together they came up with some very effective non-toxic therapies in order to treat the cancer which are listed below in detail. Carl is the longest living lung cancer survivor, and he did it all by following his intuition and trusting in holistic medicine. Over 80, Carl remains free of chronic illness and says that he does not take any prescription medications, while the average person over age 75 has been diagnosed with at least three chronic illnesses and is taking five prescription medications.
Carl has over 60 years of experience as a registered nurse practitioner and hold two masters degrees and 1 doctorate in public health and wellness. He is the host of the Holistic Health Radio Show, where he reaches a larger audience with important holistic health information, and he is the author of numerous articles and books including Healthy Holistic Aging; A Blueprint for Success, You Can Beat Lung Cancer: Using Alternative/Integrative Interventions, in which shares his experience with using alternative therapies to heal from lung cancer, and more recently Reducing Your Cancer Risk (A Holistic Approach), which was released in 2017.
The natural therapies that Carl used:
- He ate a diet made up of 75% raw fruit and vegetables, along with some complex grains and various nuts and seeds (but no peanuts)
- He eliminated all meat and dairy from his diet
- He eliminated all sugars and all simple carbohydrates such as white rice, potatoes, breads, and other refined grains.
