Health Update – August 11, 2014

Thank you for all the well wishes and prayers that have come our way over the past month.  It’s been quite the summer.  Chris continues to follow a strict regimen of cancer treatments, supplements, and a diet of whole foods and no processed food.  Early after his diagnosis of aggressive prostate cancer (not the usual slow growing version we hear about so often), and as we were exploring sending him to Johns Hopkins for robotic prostate surgery, he began working with a naturopath and acupuncturist to support his healing.  We were delighted when, after just a month of treatment his PSA, which had been increasing quickly, dropped from 12.9 to 7.3.  This early success gave us good cause to continue with the treatments we were using (well respected and documented in Germany and the Orient).  Soon after he had what is known as a “healing crisis,” lost 25 pounds, and experienced a deep cleanse when his body rid itself of stored toxins.  Recently he had another PSA test and the level remains the same, 7.3.  This is not significant enough to claim him healed, alas he has a long way to go, but the fact that the acceleration of the PSA has halted is good news indeed.   We have not ruled out surgery as he continues to follow the strict regimen, but we are intent on getting to the root cause of why his body became cancerous.  At this point it is agreed that he will get a new PSA level every 4-6 weeks so we can keep track of his progress.  Plans are underway for a concert and art show in the early fall.  Stay tuned for details.  As we have shared, staying creative during this time has been essential to our spirits.  Thank you again for all of your love and support.  We have been buoyed by shared stories of healing both by traditional and holistic means.  (When we say holistic, to us that can include surgery if necessary).  Blessings to all of you. Chris and Carrie Ishee
