GILLIAN GILL, a healer and writer from Reigate, Surrey was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and secondaries in her liver in October 2000. The prospect was bleak she was told her cancer was too big for surgery and was offered chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
As she knew what these treatments could do to the body, she told her doctors that she would try her own medicine for a month or two. "As a healer I decided it was time to walk my talk and to work on myself, giving myself, healing and self-hypnosis," she said.
She contacted Dr Daniel the following month and in addition to self-healing and visualization techniques she adopted a new diet and drank up to nine pints of water a day.
After about six months, when Mrs Gill said she felt she had reached a plateau. Dr Daniel suggested carctol and Mrs Gill added it to her regime. She continued to have her hospital seams and checks during which her consultant measured her stomach swollen by the tumour.
"After the first six to nine months it was 13 finger widths down, and five or six months after that I could feel it going, like the arms of an octopus with lot of knobs, breaking off," she said.
In February 2001 the liver tumours could not he seen on her scan, leaving only a shadow. By the and of the year the solid ovarian famous had become cystic-a sac full of fluid.
Mrs Gill is convinced that carctol has been the key, despite the other holistic measures. "I am sure it is helping. I feel it puts me mentally in a splint. I have become more settled and I associate this with Carctol," she said.
