“How I Healed Myself From Cancer – Naturally”

Tom-and-Laila-1024x1024

 

The sober look on the doctor’s face relays the dreadful news even before the words, “I’m sorry, but you have Cancer” ever leave his mouth. And to be hit with such a blow is everyone’s worst fear, as the modern-day disease is estimated to affect 1 in 3 women, and 1 in 2 men.

With statistics like these, it is now almost impossible to escape this fearsome illness, and outlook is not optimistic if being treated via western medicine. Media sources may site that chemotherapy has a high success rate, but investigative health activists have uncovered that statistically, such treatment kills more people than those diagnosed with Cancer in the first place.

For reasons such as these and a strong intuition, Tom Arguello knew the conventional route to treat his diagnosed testis cancer was not for him. And because of this, he found strength to seek alternative form of treatment and heal himself through dietary and lifestyle change. Read for yourself his extraordinary journey, and become inspired by the positive attitude he adopted while dealing with and learning from his bout with Cancer.

Disclaimer: In no way is Tom’s first-hand account meant to treat or diagnose any disease. Instead, the information offered is to share one man’s experience of overcoming Cancer holistically so others may become better educated on alternative forms of treatment to heal from such a debilitating disease.

“I thank God that I got cancer.

It was two weeks before my 37th birthday that I (reluctantly) went to see a Urologist about an “abnormality” in one of my testicles. I first noticed it 9 months prior and like a typical male, I shrugged it off as a non-issue. As the weeks and months progressed, I noticed the size of the testicle increase and change in texture. It was now unusually firm. I had spent countless hours trolling every medical website in a desperate attempt to self-diagnose. As I searched every possible outcome, one was a constant and distinct possibility: cancer.

I was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas. Its a great city and a fantastic place to raise a family, but it has also been consistently ranked in the top 10 of the nation’s “fattest cities”. I used to fit into this paradigm perfectly, eating an unhealthy diet of Mexican food, fast food and binge drinking soda. At my heaviest, I weighed in at close to 220 lbs. I’m 5’7…you do the math. Did I know it was wrong at the time? Absolutely! Did I care? Maybe a little, but I was young. I was invincible. I had all the time in the world… or so I thought. What I failed to realize at the time is a little thing called consequence.

So there I sat nervously in the waiting room, desperately trying to convince myself that what I had was normal, probably some sort of infection that would go away with antibiotics. Upon a physical inspection, I began to come to the realization that things would not go my way. I could see it on the Dr’s face. He immediately sent me across the hall for an ultrasound. Still, I held the faintest hope that it could be something else, but soon that hope would be gone as well. The Doctor reviewed my ultrasound and immediately ordered a CT scan, blood-work and scheduled me for surgery. “Cancel your business trip”, he said. Wow. It was 5:00pm on a Friday afternoon. I was the very last patient in the office, and I just got the Cancer bomb dropped in my lap. Not the ideal way to start the weekend. I had now reached the lowest point of my life. I felt lost. I felt hopeless. I felt numb.  I felt like a victim.

After my surgery, I went back to see the Doctor to go over the results of my pathology report. I was diagnosed with stage IB Seminoma Testicular Cancer. Still caught relatively early, but there were complications. The cancer had spread to the epididymis and there was “Vascular Invasion”, meaning a greater likelihood that the cancer would spread to other parts of the body. As he reviewed survival rates and treatment options with me, I felt uncomfortable with his “One size fits all” approach. The fact that all of this information was coming from some sort of medical reference on his laptop did nothing to put me at ease. I felt like a statistic and not a person. The next week, I went to see an Oncologist who reviewed my prognosis and then urged me to undergo a few rounds of chemotherapy so I could “Sleep good at night”. During this conversation, he also encouraged me to eat McDonald’s after chemotherapy if that sounded good to me. That was a huge red flag! So here I was, caught in the brutal grips of the thriving cancer industry and modern Western medicine. What choice did I have? This is what you have to do. There are no other options, right?

After speaking to my wife, I decided to go ahead with the chemotherapy. I was first sent to talk to a financial counselor who urged me to get as many chemotherapy sessions in as I possibly could before the new year, before my insurance deductibles reset and I would have to pay out of pocket. How could SHE know how many rounds of chemo I would need? She wasn’t a doctor! My next stop was back to the area of the office where they administered the chemo for an education class. The nurse proceeded to tell me every possible thing that could go wrong (loss of hair, loss of appetite, loss of feeling in fingertips, etc.) , and that I would most likely end up in the emergency room multiple times because chemotherapy lowers your white blood cell count, leaving your immunity shot. (Shields are down, Captain!) This was a classic case of the side effects being worse than the symptoms! I quickly decided against chemotherapy.

So there I was, all alone. I had turned my back on conventional treatment. So how would I heal myself to ensure that the cancer was gone for good?It was at this point that I delved into research. For the next few weeks, I lived, ate and breathed anything and everything related to alternative cancer treatments. What I found was a treasure trove of information. Countless testimonies of people being healed of late-stage cancers by nutrition and other natural herbs and oils. I’ve always been something of a risk taker in life, and the thought of “sticking it to the man” appealed to me greatly. More importantly, during all this research I noticed that the cancer rates in this country had spiked to epidemic levels. Every day on social media sites, my news feed was inundated with people either getting cancer or knowing someone who had cancer. I knew at that point that I wanted to use my story to help people. I decided to forgo traditional cancer treatments and pursue natural cures because God forbid, if any of my friends or family ever got cancer, I wanted to be able to help them through it.  More importantly, I wanted to show my kids that I could overcome adversity and do it my way.(Just like Ol’ blue eyes!)

So here’s how I did it: A raw food diet.

Every morning starts out with a glass of Kombucha. (Fermented tea with natural probiotics for digestive health because all disease starts in the gut). An hour later, I juiced copious amounts of organic vegetables and fruits. I typically drink anywhere from 20-48 ounces throughout the day. What kinds of fruit and vegetables do I juice? Lots of green, leafy vegetables like Kale and spinach. I also juice beets, carrots, celery, cucumber, parsley and Swiss Chard. I like to mix it up every day. I also drink alkaline water throughout the day. Raising your internal PH is vital because cancers thrive in an acidic environment so by increasing your internal PH, it makes it really hard for cancer to live in your body. Consuming organic vegetable and fruit juice also help to raise your PH level a great deal. Next, I take supplements. Tumeric and Garlic has been proven to be effective cancer fighters. I also take Moringa, which is also fantastic and loaded with key vitamins and minerals. 

Now lets talk snacks. (One of my favorite subjects) I typically eat lots of raw nuts: Walnuts, almonds, sunflower seeds, hemp seeds, etc. I used to eat organic yogurt, but I realized that dairy can promote cancer so I cut that out as well. I have also dramatically reduced the amount of meat I consume. I have completely cut out red meat and only consume Atlantic, wild caught fish and some chicken. Exercise is also a crucial element of healing. As I recovered from surgery I began to take long walks outside. The fresh air and vitamin D in the sunlight are not only great for the soul, but they definitely do a body good. I also began doing muscle and strength training at my local gym.

Since my initial diagnosis I have had multiple clean blood tests that show that I no longer have cancer. I don’t like to use the word “remission” because that implies that it could come back.  I am here to tell you that cancer CAN be beat naturally through a complete transformation of the mind, body and spirit! You truly have to change your life to overcome it. This means getting off processed foods and GMO’s.  As a society, we often choose to take the easy way out. To me, chemotherapy seemed like taking the easy way out. I realized that surgery and chemo doesn’t really cure anything. You could cut off a tumor and have it grow back. What really needs to be addressed is the root cause of the problem: diet and lifestyle. The only cure for cancer is a lifelong dedication to clean eating and to health and wellness.

My life is forever changed for the better as a result of cancer. My family has also benefited a great deal from my lifestyle change. We have planted a large organic garden that we use for food and juicing. I also have a strong desire to give back and help people. I am now in the process of starting a non-profit organization that will provide real, organic food to people who either don’t have the access to, or the means to obtain it.

So yes, I thank God that I got cancer because it gave me the cosmic wake up call that I so desperately needed. I have transformed my life and now I’m in great shape and for the first time in my life I FEEL HEALTHY!

More importantly, my wife and I have made our ongoing health and wellness a family affair and our first priority. One of the most rewarding things about my entire ordeal is witnessing the transformation in our children. They no longer crave or ask for junk food! They love gardening and living a healthy lifestyle, and that is possibly the greatest gift I could ever give them.”

Tom’s story is shared to example that holistic healing from fearsome modern-day diseases – like Cancer – is possible. And individuals need not wait until they receive a crippling diagnosis, as their power to prevent and even reverse such illnesses lie predominantly in their dietary and lifestyle choices.

For anything to become manifest, it must have a cause or a source. Holistic, natural modalities work with every aspect of the body, mind, and spirit to clear any underlying reason which has resulted in illness; this is where Western medicine lacks. But if one becomes inspired enough to take action today, they need not worry about modern day diseases crippling their health tomorrow.

  1. What a great story. It's too bad that more people aren't willing to make the complete lifestyle change he made. Good for him — and great for his kids to see his example. He did a nice job of laying out exactly what he did. Anyone could follow his advice and see changes in their own health.

  2. My wife and I have been on a plant based diet X 2 years after she was told she had lumps in her breast that potentially could lead to breast cancer. Several biopsies later, no cancer and no more lumps! Great story….wish more people would consider the benefits of fruits and veggies.

  3. My husband was diagnosed with mantle cell lymphoma 8 years ago and was told that no one lived past 5 years from the disease. He underwent intensive chemo and juiced the entire time and still does to this day. The doctors told him that the juicing helped with his immune system. He has been in remission for 8 years. He is now in medical journals!

  4. My wife went through this exact thing. She chose the conventional route and it did her no good in fact it made the cancer worse. I would urge anyone to try a natural remedy before conventional.

  5. Simply… amazing. Wow. What a great testimony and encouragement for others. Thank you for taking control and having self discipline to eat and drink what is most beneficial for the body. It does take a lot of discipline. You did fantastic. So proud of you. You are an inspiration to others that they CAN do it too. Praise Jesus that you are healed. I just think about how God made all vegetation for us and we start adding chemicals and processing foods not meant to be altered. Wow

  6. I kept a family member alive for seven years but it didn't work because typical western thinking interfered and undid all my progress.

  7. Tom your a great inspiration to all, thank you for you success story… My Daughter has Lymphoma they took out her thyroid where it began drs ahve taken out lympnodes she ha had cancer since she was 20 somthing, they done surgeries after surgeries taking out lymphnodes she has 2 more lumps on her neck 1 on each side drs are now trying her ona naturl pill and she is trying to change her life style in better eating shes a young mom in her 30;s with 2 young children she also is a LPN and getting ready to go back to collage for yet another coarse in the medical field. She just quit her full time job of working for herslef in home care shes told me yesterday that she is tired and burnt out, I am worried… shedon't have the strength to even think about things and her short term memory is gone as she told me she also told me that her vit. D level is very low and she hasn't even begun to take her suppilments. Tom I was wondering do you have facebook page and a group there so that maybe I could connect with you and invite my daughter to the group? I. she need your help I will be posting your tory on facebook so hopefully she will see it and get curious and read. Thaks again..

  8. Look, I love organic gardening and juicing. I've been reading fit life ever since my sister was diagnosed with cancer 3 years ago. But when you have articles that claim "Media sources may site that chemotherapy has a high success rate, but investigative health activists have uncovered that statistically, such treatment kills more people than those diagnosed with Cancer in the first place." it makes it difficult to argue the benefits of juicing for health, and that its not just being promoted by a bunch of wing nuts. Really, chemotherapy kills more people with cancer than the number of people who are diagnosed with cancer? It must be true because investigative media have used statistic to uncover it.

  9. Tom I read your story and it is very inspiring. I have a friend from church name Ruth who has been diagnosed with cancer about 2 months ago. She have been undergoing chemo and has already lost her hair. She has good an bad days. She is thin as a toothpick; but she was like that before. I would like to meet you sometime and talk to you as I also live in San Antonio. If you speak good Spanish I would like to have you talk to Ruth and encourage her. I have attempted to speak with her on juicing and taking a daily cleanse as she said she would eliminate once a day or not for a couple of days. It is important to eliminate 3 times a day to avoid any problems. I thank God you found how to treat yourself naturally. Maybe one day after talking to Pastor Santana you can talk at our church on how important is is to eat and drink more vegetable and fruits daily. God bless you and looking forward to hearing from you.

  14. Your story is an inspiration. I lost my mom to cancer and used to give donations to Cancer research in Canada, but since I learned that the U. of Calgary discovered a simple cure for most cancers but cannot get clinical trials done here because only the Pharmaceutical companies run those trials (and why would they want to risk a cure that would cut into profits?) I have stopped giving money. I am hearing first hand from many others who turned to food as cures and is the route I would take. A pensioner, I cannot donate large sums to your non profit for org. foods but would like to know more and hope you post the website on facebook.

  15. I really love your story and agree with you WHOLEHEARTEDLY . My Mom is battling Breast C .. she was lucky to have a gene that allowed her to be treated hormonally.. however, this only works for so long and then it's chemo and radiation if it , God Forbid, returns later. She is almost in the normal range of c markers 0 to 36. As of her last blood work she was at 39! Yay! BUT I am concerned about the veggies and fruits , the insecticides, the ground where the veggies and fruits are grown and the water where she lives. Long Island, New York is , as I have heard from some, the breast cancer capital of the Eastern Seaboard and some say the NATION! this is where my Mom lives and I need to get her a Reverse Osmosis, Naturally filtered water system for her shower and drinking/cooking and how can I get the best veggies without the chemicals on a budget? this is so HARD!!!! I know this will work. I am a vegetarian for 27 years and practically vegan and getting a parent to change at over SIXTY years old is UNBEARABLY HARD. DO you have any advice about greenhouses, water filters, ANYTHING in these areas so I can try to afford to help my Mom and make it clear to her EXACTLY what her environment and diet are doing to her body??? ANYONE WITH HELP please message me on FB or respond here. It would help me so much.! GOD BLESS YOU ALL and I Pray For All Seeking Health and Happiness. Good Luck to all of you no matter the goal and THANK YOU FOR SHARING THIS STORY DREW! Trish, New York City

  16. Thanks Tom for the inspiration and hope you have given me today! God Bless you and your family! I need help with this subject transitioning my Mom and Dad.. esp my Mom. What a great story!

  17. I can definitely relate to this testimony my doc found pre-cancerous cells in my body. Endless research, videos, and reading led me to many great informative people like Drew. I've started juicing ever since I came across Drew. I suffer from hypothyroidism and energy was always a major issue for me. When I juice my raw veggies I feel an explosion of energy through my body. My juicer sucks but in time I'm sure I'll get a better one. Reading this testimony will definitely continue to inspire me to move forward. Thank you for sharing!
