In addition I exercised twice daily in sunlight so as to maximize Vitamin D. I ate only organic foods, much from my moringa trees and nopales cactus. I drank only coconut water. I managed my stress better. As months and then years went by, I continued to feel my tumors shrink until I could no longer feel them. In 2012, four years after the initial diagnosis, I went back to Puerta Vallarta for an MRI to avoid the radiation from CT. After three hours, the technician said my heart was so strong, it kept moving the tumor and it was impossible to get a good picture. I bit the bullet and told him to give me the solution for the CT and he made the arrangement. When finished, I waited patiently for the radiologist and the oncologist, neither who knew my history, seemed amazed as they compared the the images with those from 2008. Finally one exclaimed joyfully in English, "Very good. The chemo worked!" When I told him I did not do chemo, they could not believe it, but it has shrunk to around one centimeter.
Jump forward to 2019, eleven years after the original diagnosis.

One day, I felt something in my stomach area and felt a rush of disappointment when I palpated a large tumor. It had returned. The feeling of strong disappointment quickly turned to humility, however, when I "heard" the tumor tell me, "Duh, what did you expect? You know what worked and what didn't. You know you have had the wrong priorities for a while. And what a hypocrite to teach the path you were successfully walking while you take another direction!"
When I let the news out to close friends and family, they convinced me to confirm a return of the cancer a PET scan. The tumor was a little larger than the original, almost 7 cm, than in 2008. The report revealed an aggressive cancer, noting a "Standard Unit Value (SUV) of 22 in the tumor.
