My husband, Stan, went through a lot of feelings when diagnosed
with aggressive pancreatic cancer Feb. 2007: Anger, fear, anxiety,
He was told that with luck he would have about 9 months to live.
He was 66 years old.
In his favor: He didn't smoke anymore, but had years ago. He'd been
using Shaklee off and on since 1979. At first more 'off' but more
consistently as time went on, finally later was on the basics
daily. But he had a lot of hidden inner body damage that we didn't
know about, like most of us. You can't see what's happening inside
so you don't always pay attention to it until the 'symptoms' start
getting your attention.
In 2007, he had dropped from 205 lbs to 86 lbs in less than 3
months. I was reminded of pictures of concentration camp
survivors. Couldn't eat much, drank our Meal Shakes at that point.
The procedure was a success and they hoped they got all cancer,
but only time would tell. Chemo/radiation was started. I had
brought a nutrition program to them and asked if he could be using
our supplements especially the Nutriferon during all this therapy.
****They called me and said to definitely go ahead with the
His blood work stayed pretty good during the rest of that year, and
he stopped chemo/radiation by end of 2007.
Unfortunately, he was diagnosed with a very fast expanding
pancreatic fistula the following March... which nearly took his
life. Then we began a concentrated effort to rebuild his health
again and hopefully stop the cancer from returning.
He was/is on only pancreatic enzyme with meals and Shaklee
supplements and Meal Shakes now. His cancer number was about 365
in 2007, had dropped a little by summer 2008, but still over 210.
I firmly believe the base of his good blood work was from the
Nutriferon, and yes- in his case we used more that two daily to
build him up. Now his is back to 2 or 3 daily.
We just weren't taking any chances, I'd rather 'waste' some and
make sure his cells had every bit they needed. Later we found out
that our FlavoMax was actually a great product for this too.
He got stronger even during chemo/radiation.
****Vivix came out in August 2008, and Stan started on it early in
September when we got our first bottles.
By October blood test, his cancer count dropped under 200, then by
December it had dropped to 165. We're working towards the 50
Vivix was the only difference in his supplement program. Will it
keep cancer away, we don't really know, but it has been shown to
create healthier, stronger, more resilient cells.
We figure if we make other changes like better food choices, better
water, exercise/air, to help create healthier cells- then Vivix
will enhance his health ever better.
Vivix & any supplements can only work with our food choices. If
cells are poor, then Vivix can increase their value but only so
much. If cells are healthier then Vivix can do an even better
There is no magic bullet for anything. No guarantees. You have to
bathe your cells in the very best supplements consistently,
surround them with something they can actually use to do their
jobs, clean-up, and rebuild.
August of 2009, he went on a backwoods camp-out and canoe trip -
Allagash, Maine, Something he had wanted to do for years. I've
shown his picture, and they have it at the cancer center. Quite a
difference from the '87 pound skeleton of 2007'.
Over the last 3 years, they thought the cancer returned a couple
times, and once when his liver was very inflamed.... but so far
we've been able to keep things at bay.
Yesterday he took off with some friends on the new Sunrise Trail in
Maine, on ATV's. He still gets tired during the day sometimes,
and would love to be 25 again physically, but he is living each day
now. His weight is at about 160 which is good for him.
Cancer, like other degenerative diseases, undermines the body's
cells/organs slowly damaging them. Before the cancer he took some
Shaklee products, but also enjoyed eating a lot of other things we
now know cause damage. That plus his job driving tractors for
years, and the negative air that he breathes.
Supplementation, as Dr. Shaklee put it, is for filling in the gaps,
enhancing the nutrition from your meals, they can't be expected to
compensate for not eating well. For example you can't stick a B
complex into a big piece of pie' and balance the nutrition.
The quality of the nutrition product is also extremely important-
you have to know what's in it and that it does give results. Why
waste your money? A great looking car is cheaper with no engine,
but it won't get you anywhere.
Supplementation plus better food choices, plus quality air and
water, and fun exercise, all play a role in our health, then you
add genetics to the mix.
It's much harder to try to take everything you need daily when the
damage is out of control, and you don't even feel like eating or
It is much easier to start early and increase the cell health
consistently even just a little bit - makes a major difference. It
is easier to ward off disease than it is to try to 'cure' it once
it has taken hold.
We're sorry your friend is going through all this, and we know the
anger and frustration from it. But perhaps looking at this from
another possible viewpoint: --- the Vivix has been trying to heal
those cancer cells as they grew, perhaps it held back some of the
cancer, as her body tried to fight what was happening 'undercover'.
It may still be working in her favor now. Damage can be stalled,
or slowly cleaned up, but time is a factor- and it has run out
while some parts were healing, just not enough time.
Also taking just Vivix is not going to fix a problem which usually
has taken years to insert itself before it suddenly triggered the
According to the medical team, Stan had only one chance to stall
death and that was the whipple procedure. When he survived that,
and then got stronger during chemo/radiation instead of weaker,
they told us that things looked good and he may have bought another
18 months...That would bring us to June 2009.
August 2009 he went on the Allagash trip.
So here it is 2010 August and he is still with us. We live in the
woods of Maine, he works and 'plays' outside every day, uses a
snowmobile and ATV, turned 69 this year. Each day is a gift and we
just try to enjoy it and make the most of it. Do we believe the
supplements had a positive effect - yes.
Our loving advice is to try to create a healthier life - starting
anytime - never to young or too old to do that, and take
Check the research, with Shaklee products you know what results
they give, and plan accordingly.
Use several things together to cover all your bases. Bathe your
cells in HEALTHY NUTRIENTS. Does it cost, YES. Everything has a
cost, we spent money on Nutriferon and other nutrients.
Was it worth it, YES. I would say to anyone 'never give up' trying
to rebuild your health, because you really don't know what battles
are being fought and won internally on a daily basis.
There are supplements I would never give up with cancer -
Nutriferon, Vivix, and Multi, one of our Shake choices [mine would
be Cinch], plus breathe good clean air -they now know it helps
deter 'bad' cells.
Life is a precious gift, remember to open it and have some fun!
