Triumph over Cancer
A Natural Approach
By Agi Barsi Lidle
“Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re going
to get.” How right Forest Gump was. Just when we are batting 1000,
by choosing our favorite pieces of chocolate, with confidence we
choose another and bite into it. Yuk! it’s awful. There is no polite
way of spitting it out. We have to brave it, bear it, chew it, and
get it down as quickly as we can–and then try again.
I bit into my least favorite chocolate four and one-half years ago.
Spitting it out was not an option. I had to swallow it, digest it,
and decide how to avoid ever biting into the same piece ever again.
On July 9, 1997 a phone call changed my life. “I’m sorry, Agi, you
have breast cancer,” said the radiologist. My emotions ran wild.
First there was disbelief, then anger, and finally sadness.
After I learned that the prognosis was poor for this type of breast
cancer, I intuitively knew I had to try an approach other than
traditional methods. Within days of the diagnosis I learned about
the “Incurables Program.” My inspiration to follow this program was
a young woman’s healing story. She was in her 20’s and diagnosed
with breast cancer. She also chose the “Incurables Program” and
within a few months was healed. I knew that if she could do it, I
could also! From that moment on I knew, without a shadow of a doubt,
I would be healed too.
The next day after my decision I called all three of my doctors. My
primary care physician had not thought anything was wrong with my
breast until my third visit when I finally said, “If this was your
breast what would you do?” I had physical signs something was wrong.
My nipple became inverted, and I had puckering along side of it. She
finally wrote me a prescription to get a mammogram. Her answer to my
decision to treat myself was, “I think it’s stupid.” My radiologist
and surgeon both couldn’t believe my decision.
For the next week they kept calling me trying to convince me to
change my mind. I wouldn’t change my mind and asked them to stop
Before cancer, I knew nothing about natural health and healing. My
diet consisted mostly of fast foods, including meat almost every
day. I used to think vegetarians were weirdos, and it was abnormal
not to eat meat. Many times out of my mouth came, “I would never
become a vegetarian.”
Never say never, because my healing journey began by eliminating
meat, dairy, and sugar from my diet. Instead, I nourished my body
with fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, nuts, and seeds.
Amazingly, my husband Bill supported me in my decision to heal from
cancer naturally. Within two weeks, he also eliminated meat from his
diet. Wow! What a drastic adjustment for both of us!
With powerful herbal formulas, cold sheet treatments (hydrotherapy),
Native American black salve and undoubting faith, I eliminated
cancer within six months of the diagnosis. My latest test results
were outstanding. The only physician I called back was my
radiologist. She did say that she also believes and does herbs
herself! After completing my healing program my nipple was no longer
Learning how to cook was my biggest challenge. Before cancer, the
kitchen was foreign to me. Today, passion for creating delicious and
colorful vegetarian recipes energizes me. I spend much of my time
teaching cooking and un-cooking classes in my home.
Looking back over the past four and a half years, I can honestly say
that cancer was a blessing. The experience empowered me to see and
live life differently. Cancer forced me to face the emotional chains
keeping me from living a healthy and fulfilled life. The biggest
chain to be broken was un-forgiveness. Forgiving all those who I
held resentment (and even hate) for was a biggie. Before lasting
healing could occur, I knew forgiveness was imperative. Cancer also
made me take a good look at myself, so I could be more forgiving of
myself by treating myself with the same kindness I show others and
having as much joy for myself as I had for others. Cancer also
forced me to let go and give my fears to God and allow Him take the
burden from my shoulders.
Cancer doesn’t scare me anymore. Keeping steps ahead of it is the
key. Knowing how to release negative emotions and how to build a
strong immune system is important. A friend once said, “Life and the
art of living it is not in the arrival or departure; it’s in the
Today I feel so empowered yet humble knowing how marvelous the human
body is and, when given the chance, can heal itself. I always ponder
the idea that a lizard can regrow its tail. Why can’t we do even
