Pancreatic Cancer: Story of Maribel C. Lim (August 2003)

Manila, Philippines

Living with any serious disease can be difficult and challenging. I know how each one of you who has a serious ailment feels…I have also felt that way…more than two years ago.

After reading the MRI result in July of 2001, my husband and I went from one doctor to another to find out the best way to extend my life, to be cured of my cancer. Three, four, five…seven…I can no longer count how many oncologists we’ve been to…all specialist in pancreatic cancer, a kind of cancer in which the patient has little chance of getting cured. This is the most aggressive form of cancer. Too little time is given to you to think…if you are still able to think straight given your serious condition.

When I had the courage to ask the doctor how long I will live if I would not undergo operation, his response stunned me…6 months only, one year at the most.

When I heard those words…I felt the world standing still. Everything the doctor was saying was incomprehensible. I felt like a prisoner handed a death sentence. During those moments I felt numbness all over my body. What I could only feel at that time were tears running down my cheeks.

Like any other person with serious ailment, I wanted a speedy cure. At that time, the fastest solution…and the only solution we know of…is surgery…nothing else. I braced myself for a 12-24 hour operation…my gallbladder will be removed, part of my liver, stomach and duodenum will be taken away. But if during surgery it is discovered that the tumor which was then 2 inches round was too intimate or too close to the pancreas, they will not remove it, and instead terminate the surgery by closing the incision. Of course, the other parts of my body will have already been destroyed.

I consented to surgery even if it would be very difficult on my part…rather than waiting defenseless…because at that time…again…it was the only solution we knew…until…the issue of blood came up. You have not asked me, but I am one of Jehovah’s Witnesses and as such we adhere strictly to a Bible-based standard…to avoid the use of blood, including the blood transfusion.

My doctors would be indignant each time my refusal to accept blood transfusion would be brought up…threat…pressure…intimidation…These, they resorted to, just so I would agree to a surgery using blood.

Every consultation would just result in depression, since it was impossible for me to be operated on without the use of blood…and I would never compromise the firm foundation of the Bible teaching to abstain from blood…even if this would man losing my life.

This is the main reason why I was not operated on…thanks to being a Jehovah’s Witnesss…and my strict compliance with Bible standard of abstaining from blood…otherwise, I would have gone under the knife…must have been through chemotherapy, or cobalt…or would not have been here before you alive beacuase I would have been 6 feet under the ground.

So, what would we do? My husband and I started researching…we read numerous books…until we discovered a different kind of treatment, which is called “Alternative Treatment”. We tried this approach…we learned that to treat a disease, the whole body is involved. In my case, it is not enough to focus on my diseased pancreas but to include my whole body as well. We learned holistic treatment…a form of treatment that includes the whole body not just he affected part.

Each night we read a different book. We stayed late just to learn more about alternative treatment. Each research confirmed our conviction that surgery was not the only solution…in fact, it was not even required. We only has to change our lifestyle, what we have been used to. Alternative treatment is not easy, one has to be patient…self-discipline is important…you just have to believe in what you are doing.

In my case, we started from nothing, zero knowledge with respect to alternative treatment. Added to this was the fact that we were running against time, very short…just six months. Each moment must not be wasted…every move must be precise…each decision, crucial. Each wrong move meant one big step backward…only to start all over again.

One very difficult aspect of having cancer is having many “well-meaning” people around you, who just want to be sympathetic and offer any help or suggestion the best way they know. Each one of them has an opinion to give, a little pressure here and there for you to try this or that or just plain counsel on what to do given my situation. Of course, you get confused…but I have learned not to be carried away by pressure. The most important thing to consider the moment you know that you have cancer is to stay focused and not to be swayed by mere talk.

While we were researching, making the first move seemed difficult. Especially since we were not sure if we were doing the right thing. We rested our hope on what we learned from our readings. We were not sure if things would be easy for us, nor were we convinced that it was the right track towards recovery.

I admit, many times I lost confidence in what my husband and I were doing. Many nights in bed, the thought of not seeing the dawn of a new day gripped me. Once I had the painful attacks, I had this desire to undergo operation…but again thinking about the blood issue, this firmed up my decision to go ahead with the alternative treatment.

I took so many food supplements…a variety of them…whatever it is that I read, I would buy…whoever would give me, I would accept. But I realized that it was not enough. Until one evening…I had a severe attack. I felt as if there was a fresh deep wound stomach being gnawed by a rat. I woke up my husband and told him that perhaps it was already my end. I was hoping that we could find a treatment for me, hopefully herbal medicine. We prayed fervently to Jehovah God to help us find a medicine that would directly address my ailment.

The following day, a Chinese sister in faith, visited me and made an appointed with a cancer researcher who introduced the medicine TIAN XIAN or commonly called CHINA NO. 1. I had heard of a fellow Jehovah’s Witness who was then into this kind of medication. When we arrived at the Green & Gold International Exports Office in Dapitan cor. Banaue, we were welcomed by a kind and very knowledgeable specialist in alternative treatment, Mr. Manuel Kiok. He showed us the China 1 packet and explained to us its effect to the body of a cancer patient like me.

For the first time after I was diagnosed with cancer, my heart was overflowing with joy. Now, I have hope. Through Mr. Kiok, China 1 will help extend my life, much better than the 6 months to one year lease on life if I would not undergo surgery.

On the first weeks of taking China 1, combined with China number 6 capsules, I remember emitting black wastes from my body. At the start it seemed that my disease was counteracting the medicine. There was some kind of wrestling going on inside my body every time I took China 1. I knew then that the medicine was proving to be effective. So I continued the medicine hoping that one day I would be pronounced fully cured.

Six months has passed, I am still alive. Still weak, still uncertain…and the only test I was doing to measure the degree of malignancy of my cancer is thru HCG-Human Chorionic Gonadotropin. The test is based on a theory proposed by Dr. Howard Beard and other researchers who contend that cancer is related to a misplaced trophoblast cell that become malignant in a manner similar to pregnancy in that they both secrete HCG. As a consequence, a measure of the amount of HCG found in the urine is also a measure of the degree of malignancy. The higher the number, the greater the severity of the cancer.

Above 50 units is positive of cancer, 49 and below is negative of cancer. My first reading? 80. Very high. I was overwhelmed and scared of that count. But within a few months, we tried to lower my HCG count. From 80, it went down to 73, then 64…I continued taking China 1, at the same time observing my food intake. I refrained from eating food with sugar, salt, fat, oil, white flour, only organic foods. Each time I had an attack, China 1 helped relieve the pain. I really felt its effect.

When I felt I had been cured, I tried to stop taking China 1. I stopped for two weeks, dependent only on food supplements. After that, I had my HCG taken…too confident that the result would not be affected by not taking China 1. The result? From a reading of 56, which is very close to being cancer-free, my HCG went up to as high as 64.5.

And when I resumed taking China 1, again my HCG went down. I tried for the second time to stop taking this medicine. Thinking that it was just coincidental. The same thing happened, my HCG went up again. What does this show? That China 1 greatly helped in lessening the severity of my cancer.

After 2 years, I am happy to inform everybody here present, that my HCG count is 51. From 80, two years ago, it went down to 51. I never thought I would still be alive after two years. It is hard to believe that I am here standing before you, alive and well.

I once talked to a doctor…he was astounded to learn that I have pancreatic cancer, healthy despite not undergoing surgery. He could not or shall I say did not believe that I am a cancer patient. Each time I talk to doctors who refuse to believe that I have pancreatic cancer, I would explain to them that I am taking herbal medicine particularly China 1. Invariably, a shake of the head is the response I get.

Two years had passed when they convince me to undergo immediate operation. Now, they were shocked to see me alive. So they concluded that I am not sick of cancer. They said that their experience has proven that a pancreatic cancer patient has no chance of surviving months after he has been diagnosed despite being aided by herbal medicines.

I could not believe what I heard, two years ago when I was very weak and thin, they insisted that I undergo surgery, threatening that I would die if I delayed my decision. Now that they see me healthy, strong and very much alive, they would claim that maybe I have no cancer? After several oncologists confirmed that I have cancer…after making me go through laboratory tests such as CT scan, MRCP and scheduling me for surgery…they would tell me after two years that perhaps it is not cancer?

When I was weak then, they were certain it was cancer. Now that I am physically strong, they are no longer that certain? What could perhaps be the reason? Is it because they had no hand in my recovery? Or is it because they are reluctant to admit that the alternative treatment that I used proved effective? That because of my diet…of China 1, and with the help of Jehovah God, I survived the prognosis they had set for me? But of course they could not accept that these were the factors that contributed to my recovery. By their reactions, however…there is one thing I am sure of…I am thankful that I did not commit myself to them.

Because of this, let me take this opportunity to thank Mr. & Mrs. Manuel Kiok for introducing China 1 to us, which is the reason I am enjoying good health. But of course, all credit must first go to our God Almighty Jehovah, who, if not for Him, if not for His law of abstaining from blood which I firmly obeyed, I would not have looked for alternatives. I am convinced that He guided us in finding the best and appropriate treatment for me. And one of these is China 1. I may not be fully cured, but my standing before you after two years is already a big factor…a great miracle for a pancreatic cancer patient like me.

Again, my fervent thanks to Jehovah God and to His only-begotten Son, Jesus Christ…to my beloved husband, Victor who painstakingly and patiently supported me in my search for alternative treatment that cured me…to my parents for their love and support…brothers in faith who continuously pray to Jehovah God in my behalf…and I would like to make special mention to Ms. Saindy Yap who introduced me to Mr. Kiok…from the bottom of my heart, thank you…and of course to the kindness and goodness of Mrs. Priscilla & Mr. Manuel Kiok, who helped me through China 1. I also wish to extend my thanks to the one who discovered China 1…Prof. Wang Zhen Guo, & Mr. Sidney Lu.

Lastly, to all cancer patients here tonight. I know you too, can beat cancer…we can reverse cancer…aside from taking China 1, feed your body good nutrients through diet and supplements, thus providing your body the raw materials that it needs to rebuild itself. Then feed your heart the good feelings of love, forgiveness, confidence in your abilities, a sense of purpose in your life, and a trusting relationship with your Creator. With this in mind, I firmly believe…we can recover from cancer…we can defeat cancer.

Thank you everyone!
