Reflection from Ericlee: On coaching & the Next leg of our journey

When a good coach speaks, the athletes listen! Why? Because we trust they know more than we do and they want the best for us. After meeting with Dr. Azar, M.D. and Certified Gerson Practictioner, for two hours we were hopeful and encouraged. She listened to my story and then she explained to me more specific protocol to follow. She did not downplay that what I have is serious, but rather, she encouraged us that with the right mental attitude and the right plan need to be implemented to overcome this cancer. She is now my coach!

We made Ericlee an orange "beer" aka organic carrot juice!

The training has definitely been kicked up a notch. Early bed times, juicing every hour, CrossFit (lower intensity) training, supplements, and coffee enemas. For those of you have not checked out the Gerson Therapy or the Beautiful Truth documentary, here it is in a nut shell. Due to our polluted world, including the water, air, and soil, we as humans are deficient and toxic. If the Immune system cannot keep up by killing the invaders or mutated cells, then cancer strikes. It is impossible to track because there are so many factors that go into people getting cancer now. Max Gerson discovered 60 years ago that if you take care of these two issues (deficiency and toxicity, the body will heal and repair itself. Thus, Gerson floods the body with pure nutrition (organic juicing) every hour of the day for a total of 13 times. Then 4-5 times a day the body is given a coffee enema which detoxes the body. This one-two punch has healed many patients from not only Cancer but Diabetes, Arthritis, and High blood pressure.

Ericlee's meals consist of a combination of organic vegetables and fruit. We are so grateful for all the friends who have shared Whole Foods gift cards and organic produce from their own gardens!

Dr. Azar also suggested we get a second opinion about surgery from Stanford University doctors. Join us in prayer as we wait for a call about an appointment.

While in San Diego, we stayed with dear friends Bill (right) & Treva Yaccino. They hosted a prayer night for Ericlee in their home and former pastor from The Bridge, Ed Noble, also joined us for a time of prayer!

I will leave you with this thought from one of our favorite devotionals: The Lord only builds a bridge of faith directly under the feet of a faithful traveler. He never builds the bridge a few steps ahead, for then it would not be one of faith. 2 Corinthians 5:7 says we live by faith and not by sight.
