  1. hi Courtney my name is Keith, June of 2015 I was diagnosed with nasal carsonomia and went through Chemo and Radiation.. I do not want that again …so I’m jumping on the band wagon
    i see where you use Stevie and Ezekiel bread, how is that ?and I love your site

  2. HI Cortney I have just come across your website. It is very heartening to read your story ! Thank you. Lots of great stuff here to read!!

    I have started the Budwig diet and it suggests that you shouldn’t take supplements. I was taking vitamin C, vitamin E, zinc, selenium, curcumin and magnesium.

    Through my research it also suggests that you can take supplements but not within 2 – 3 hours of the CC/Flaxseed Oil mixture.

    Any information or thoughts greatly appreciated.

  3. Hi I have been asking questions but getting no answers. Can someone please help? Are all the foods listed here for while you are treating cancer? Or for later? I have been looking at the 3 day menu plan and it is quite different. Living mostly on juices and green smoothies. But her I see lots of other foods listed so just wondering what to really follow just starting on this? Thanks!

    • Hi Karolyn! I followed a specific protocol in Bill Henderson’s book “Cancer-Free: Your Guide to Gentle, Non-toxic Healing.” All of these recipes are for that protocol. 🙂

  4. Hi Courtney, i am looking for testing for my circulation tumor cells to get a base line, more than my pet scan or mri, thank you for your site. There is so many kinds of tests and costs it is confusing and just need help to find the right one., thank you.

    • I think the CTC is one of the best tests right now to monitor with. There is an entire list I saw the other day…in the video from March 4th, 2017 with Dr. Wichman. The whole presentation is fantastic.

  5. This is so awesome, you put a lot of time and effort into assembling all this information together. I’ve read some of it in different places but to have it all together in one place makes life a dream! Thank you, thank you!

  6. Hi Courtney my name is Nathan. I want to ask you about cottage cheese substitution. Can i substitute cottage cheese with low fat milk? I can’t find any product of cheese in my country. Please help.

  7. My son was diagnosed with NLPHL when he was 11. We had just moved to Florida and a lump on his neck was detected and we were sent to a ENT specialist. Everything in our lives started spinning out of control. We were rushed into surgery and told that they would do a biopsy and if it was cancer they would not take it out. The removed the tumor and the next day told us he had cancer. We were devastated and they quickly moved us into a room where the Oncology Dr was waiting. They brought in a clergyman who was supposedly there to help but just made us more afraid. After many tests and every scan possible I found a doctor at St. Jude who said she could cure him. The first treatment failed. The second treatment was RCHOP, he was 13 by that time. Your the only other person we know that has had this rare lymphoma. He has not gone back for his follow up yet, it will be a year off treatment in August. I found your site and have many regrets. I wish I had found you sooner…I wish everything wasn’t moving so fast. We cry a lot. I have started him on a new diet using many of the recipes you used to heal yourself. THANK YOU for posting your story…sharing your life and giving us hope.

  8. Hi Cortney.i have question about raw diet during healing time. Can i have raw honey instead stevia? Can i have raw cheese sometime ? Any bread in this diet ? Thank u in advance .Elena.

    • No to raw cheese during healing season. honey depends on which protocol you’re using. I didn’t use any since I was reducing all sugar. Bread is zero to minimal. Mostly zero. I would have a slice or two a few days a week of Ezekiel bread or olive oil as a reward but most holistic cancer experts would so NO to bread.
