in Jenny’s MOST EXCELLENT book, you’ll find many early-warning, non-invasive tests not yet being widely used by the medical system (yes there’s a chapter about thermography!). Here she’s telling about a blood test, ENOX2, that she uses to keep her cancer in check. Jenny is an RN who went through conventional treatment for breast cancer and is educating the world about early-warning, non-invasive tests of not only detecting, but managing cancer to keep the “lumps and bumps” (tumors) from showing up.
“Hi, I am Jenny Hrbacek, RN, author of Cancer Free? Are You SURE!
Would you believe me if I told you that it is possible to find cancer when it is as small as the tip of a pin? Would you like to see the lump or bump detection methods become obselete? How about having the opportunity to intervene really early if you or a loved one has cancer? Then READ ON as I share my story.
After receiving a diagnosis of breast cancer in 2009, I experienced first-hand the conventional approach to cancer treatment. I underwent surgery and chemotherapy. But in the chemo rooms, I noticed other people were back a second and third time because their cancer had come back. They, like me, had regular follow up appointments, but by the time the tests used to “monitor their progress” were able to indicate a recurrence, the size of the tumor usually warranted more treatment – more surgery and/or chemo. What happened to the idea of early detection, early enough that you could head off a recurrence or even the initial diagnosis? Is that possible? YES IT IS!
I attended medical conferences and for the first time I learned there are tests available that can spot cancer years before a mammogram, Pap test, or PSA count can. And those tests, which are the most common cancer screening tests, look only for reproductive cancers. What if the cancer is in the pancreas or the bone or the lung – somewhere other than a reproductive organ?
Since 40% of Americans will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, we need to do better. And we can. It’s just that doctors don’t often tell patients about ALL their options. True early detection tests for cancer exist, and are readily available, if patients know to ask for them. That is why I wrote Cancer Free? Are You SURE!
It has often been said the United States does not have a health care system; we have a disease management system focused on expensive drugs and invasive surgeries.
Through public awareness, let’s ask that the system do more to promote health – not just manage sickness. Let’s make the insurance industry aware of these state-of-the-art tests and that we want medical plans to cover the use of them.”
