"I am 5 years down the track now since my dire prognosis... I thought I'd be pushing up daisies pretty smartly; and I'm doing really, really well with the ongoing support of David. I've got the best team on board, and with that, I'm feeling great. You've got to do everything possible to stay alive, and positive thinking is a huge, huge part of it. My oncologist says everything I'm doing with David, keep doing it, because its working. He's astonished: the last scan... showed there's no increase in fluid, my breathing is great, and he just said its remarkable how well I'm doing. I know that at times my body needs the chemo, but the support of complementary health is fantastic - and I'm the healthiest of anybody I know, I think!"
"I was put on palliative care, and I sought you out. I felt like I was on an escalator and had no say, it was a little bit disempowering. But you listen, you want to know what I want out of it, and you are committed to making sure that happens. I think my cancer is something that needs to be managed, and what I have got out of coming here is I can manage it with the choices I make. My last CT scan* showed a 50% reduction in the lung and liver tumours, which was awesome to hear. My magic number is 88, that's what age I plan to get to!"
*(A CT scan is a medical test. We do not conduct medical tests.)
"The doctors were telling us there is no cure for what I've got. Early in the process I felt that there had to be a more natural way of dealing with my cancer, so we did a bit of searching on the Net, and found you, and made an appointment to come and see you. From then on, I think my life has changed - certainly for the better! My energy levels are exceedingly good compared to pre-diagnosis. I go to the gym, I do my workouts, I feel pretty good! I bound up the stairs at home much better than I used to! I had a scan six or eight weeks ago that showed no progression of my cancer, which I think is a pretty good sign considering I'm doing no other treatments than the natural way. I'm not symptom free, but I certainly feel I'm in a better position right now having not done some of the other more aggressive therapies. I think I'm blessed...that I've had this treatment that I'm following, and I'm going to continue as long as I can."
This is the original interview with Pauline (see above) in 2012.
"I originally heard about David Holden from clients that I saw as a locum in [xxx], NZ.
These people were coming in and had beaten cancer! I asked what they were doing and described David’s processes and had to see for myself. So I made the effort to Holden Healthcare to see David, and dragged my wife along as well... My initial consult was an eye opener to say the least! Made me completely aware of all the inadequacies in my diet and hydration. The Hemaview process really gave me a great base line to start from... I have really felt the benefits of going through these processes and making necessary modifications along the way! A massive heartfelt thank you to Holden HealthCare for doing what you do so well! Cannot recommend highly enough!"
"When I was diagnosed with breast cancer DCIS stage 2 I had all the standard medical treatments, but it took a lot out of me. David helped me to flush out my system and get my lifestyle back on track just after I had finished chemo & radiotherapy. I am convinced this helped me bounce back faster than many other women I spoke to at Oncology that had been through similar experiences. I strongly recommend his help if you want sound advice on what to do to recover faster if you are in a similar situation. Thanks David & your team - very helpful"
